    You know, I can totally see them doing an HD remake of at least Sonic 1, just from looking at the twitter image of Green Hill Zone. I'd be really disappointed in a remake though. I want a new game.

    Seeing how SEGA is active during the weekdays the announcement would have to be made in the next 4 days. So the wait won't be that long.

    I'm not hyped, but I'm very curious on what this could even be.

    Hype to the max on this one!
    Seriously, I've been waiting for a Sonic game that I can actually follow and get invested into since Lost World. I knew Boom would be a failure from the start. This is coming up on 3 years of waiting for a Sonic game I care about, so this reveal will hopefully be like releasing the longest spindash ever.

    I wouldn't get too excited about this, because I have a feeling like we're gonna get disappointed.

    Expect the worst, hope for the best. I think a lot of people in the communities are getting their expectations up pretty high, and that's only going to crash down when it actually happens. We've got an idea of when something's gonna happen now thankfully, best just to chill and let it surprise us. Don't say no one warned you all :v:

    EDIT: Quote for new page:
     
  7. I see the plans are going smoothly...

    I think it'll be fine. I still have enough faith in Sonic Team in recent years to believe they can put out a good game, especially with the alleged 4 years of development time for this next one.

    Sonic Adventure 3 confirmed :ruby:

    On a more serious note, I wouldn't get too hyped about whatever it is. Every single time I've let myself get hyped about a Sonic game in the last 10 years, I've been let down big time. It's only when I decided to never get hyped until Sega showed enough of the goods that things have went well in that regard. If you come in expecting shit and get gold instead, you're pleasantly surprised. If you come in expecting gold and instead get shit... well... you all know the rest.
     
  10. But, but, Gene said it will be a brick to the community...

    I mean, Sonic Adventure 3 would fit that qualification.

    But it's not Sonic Adventure 3. I'd be much more upset if it was. :ssh:

    Bricks can hurt.

    A lot.

    The way I see it, this proverbial brick will either hurt members of the community or some members will clamor for more bricks to be thrown at them squarely in the head :specialed: It's a double-edged sword.

    I'm not going to sweat this; my initial anxiety has worn off and I'm patiently waiting, although I wish they could just get to the point already. I love these social media things, but I still would like some sort of announcement.

    If this does somehow end up involving Big the Cat it is going to be Ruby's fault for making sure nobody could ever forget about the character in the past year.

    Consider me stoked.

    That's actually not what I meant. I think the big announcement is just a dumb teaser image that doesn't tell anything about the game at all, or a trailer with some nostalgia crap like Runners' and Sonic 4's trailers. It's better than nothing, but I want to see more than that.
    But I hope I'm wrong, I hope they will announce or show us something interesting.

    I can't agree more.

  17. News this week? Heck yeah, I'm hyped. I've been liking what's been produced this past decade (sans Next-Gen and RoL).

    This is going to be really bloody interesting.

    My expectations are low though. Folks threw out Sonic 4 theories over the really blatant 3D Classics Collection tease, so I'm opting for a more... uh, toned-down approach.

    Now that an announcement is immenent, I'm feeling a little sick.

    RoL was a speedbump. Just want the new game to get things back on track.

    Or be Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3. Either or.

    My Nintendo News tweeted a rumor that an announcement is coming tomorrow. I didn't press the link, but do that have any source to base that on? Because nothing in this thread says anything about tomorrow having an announcement, especially since I would expect Ruby to tweet about it.
