    Interesting titbit of info translated from this site's hands-on impressions - it seems there will be character-specific elements throughout the game (though to what extent is not specified), including a different ending sequence per character. Not too surprising, especially considering previous hands-on impressions confirmed each character had their own intro sequence for the game, but welcome to hear all the same - after all, the more character-specific stuff there is, the more reason there is to replay as each character beyond simple completionism! = )

    Now I wonder what could be done with the game after its release...
    Regarding mods, original content injection or even using the engine to create new games ^^"

    For me? Online Co-Op campaign mod.
    I heard something about Online battle mode. The dream is there.

    The issue there, though, is he’s not even a weasel; he’s a Jerboa-Wolf mix

    Sega America lmao; I think they figured most americans wouldn’t know what a Jerboa even was

    why they didn’t just say he was a pure wolf is beyond me

    I doubt they even knew he was a jerboa-wolf hybrid in the first place. They probably just wanted to put his species in the name instead of "the Sniper", assumed he was a weasel, and didn't bother asking SoJ if they got it right because the 12 year old kids playing Sonic Triple Trouble in the minuscule screen of their Game Gears wouldn't have a reason to question if he really is a weasel or not.

    I mean, I think it's safe to say that most people here wouldn't know what an Echidna was if it wasn't for Knuckles, yet SoA didn't bother changing his species to a mole

    OR
    Frankly, hybrid creatures aren't really a thing in Sonic in general, you tend to just be one or the other, so I'd prefer he be a weasel. Kind of makes sense with the character anyway.

    inb4 someone makes the joke about his species actually being "Sniper"

    Anyway, it seems some people think that Trip might be the hypothetical fifth playable character. If that turns out to be the case, I hope he plays like a Smash Bros. Brawl character!

    I still feel like if you gotta settle on one species or drop “Sniper” from his name, Wolf would be the first thing you’d think of looking at that design

    I surprised I haven't seen anyone complaining about that "smoke section" with the butterfly? I think the first zone looks great, but that smoke gimmick adds nothing positive and has me a bit worried overall. Frankly, it looks like the island zone got a lot of love, and the forest zone looks mediocre. I'm hoping the other zones aren't as lackluster.
     
  13. Oh my, that's quite a bit of thread to look through.

    Okay. I don't really care how close the game is to Classic Sonic control wise. In my view, not everything about Classic Sonic's controls are ideal anyway, nor is every aspect of them necessary to a fun game experience.

    As far as how well it reflects Classic Somic, what I want to know is how it handles slope jumping. Any footage of people doing that? Or footage of people who...

    Know how to play Classic Sonic period? A lot of the footage I am seeing is a little frustrating, tbh.

    There's someone jumping from a slope at 1:03 here and it looks accurate to Genesis. Is that what you mean?

    Although, if he was a Wolf, wouldn't he just look like a massive Tails then?
     
  16. Kind of.

    I want to see the slope jumps from more angles of terrain. And I want to see how much practical application they have. Here, slope jumping kind of acts as something you don't want to do. If anything, you want to jump over this ramp because that is faster.

    Maybe it's just me, but I have to watch some of these videos on mute because the Sonic 4 music is just that grating on my ears.

    I don't mind the level. At worst, the darkness is superflous but unobtrusive.

    Actually, that's not true. At worst, the darkness is remarkably ugly. As in, the effect itself. It's literally just a texture layer.

    Hopefully that darkness mask can be turned off, at the very least with mods, because it is extremely ugly. No reason for it to be there from what I can see.

    If it had some sort of fade-in effect (which I think even Sonic 4 does; yes, we found the one thing that game does better than Superstars) or was pitch-black it would look better, but you can physically see where the "darkness" begins and ends. It's just a layer. The lighting of the level doesn't change either.
