    Yeah, I'd definately prefer Crabmeat over "UltraDrone X784 MKII"

    But I have to admit, the game's looking pretty good from the videos I've seen so far. Or at least graphics wise anyways, most videos are just showing off the Day/Night system rather than any actual gameplay.

    But, here's hoping.

    Fine, let's have everything exactly how it used to be, and then see how fast it gets boring. Personally, I see nothing wrong with this except that the storyline is a bit overkill of "classic."

    This is called "trying to salvage in 3D a genre which can never work in 3D".

    Mario 64 proves it is possible.

  6. I wonder if we'll get anymore new dumbass, never-to-be-seen-again characters like whoever the hell that green bird was in Sonic Riders.

    Jet. Unfortunately, according to Rider's ending, he and is posse will be back. I quote: Jet: "I'll be back/We'll meet again (whatever), Sonic the Hedgehog!".

    And the old-school fans go :no: n0 plz

    Don't insult my intelligence. I was only joking. I do feel they are going to end up with as many Sonic's as in that "Fur Dying" multiplayer hoax. I don't know if I will end up getting this. I am more into seeing what they have for the Wii.

    Ya never know, Jet and his crew might get shot before they can return. Well, one can hope.

    Story line doesn't sound great, but it is still better than Shadow. And the game itself looks fantastic (Wish caterkiller and crabmeat were in this game though). The graphics look better than ever and I want to see a picture of Eggman already.

    Oh, and this plot makes me think of one thing.

    Sorry, Sonic. The princess is in another castle

    Plot sounds an awful lot like mario huh?

    This plot sounds... weird. But I can't see how people think that, without even having played it, it's better than ShTH. Personally I liked the Shadow Arc series, but then again, I am talking to the brick wall that is the Sonic Fandom (read: The Ones Who Refuse To Believe Anything After Sonic & Knuckles Is Half Decent)

    Actually, I quite love Sonic Adventure, the three Advance games, Rush, and Heroes. SA2 just didn't feel like Sonic, and Shadow was too outlandish and messy, both story and gameplay-wise.

    However, there are certain aspects I disaprove of, such as the lack of actual badniks. If not bandiks, at least have more unique and varied enemies. These days, they just slap mechs in every level, or put bunny ears on the egg pawns in Casino themed levels and go "Awesome, variety. That's a wrap, boys".

    I, for one, welcome our newly realistic robot enemies. And the removal (or at least the apparent lack of) 90% of the characters around.

    As for Sonic Riders, that trio is probably doomed to vanish, ala Tails Doll and Metal Knuckles. And Eggrobo.

    Shadow the Hedgehog had potential, but somebody dropped it on the floor before they finished making it. Now it's just plain broke.

    The next-gen Sonic game is clearly aimed for a different audience than the rest of the Sonic series. It's tailored towards the older, hardcore gamer, hence why they added the realistic environments and enemies, aged Sonic, etc. etc. It's not for us classic Sonic lovers, it's for the hardcore audience.

    I'm expecting the highly-likely Wii Sonic title to be tailored more to the classic audience.

    To be honest, the Sonic series has been like that as of late. SA2 and Shadow were very steeped in realistic settings and mature, edgier tones. I'm not too fond of the transition :P Heroes was like the breath of fresh air (aka a game with some classic Sonic feel) before Naka decided to dunk the series back under.

    Also, that Wii game. I'm putting money down that it will introduce a new character. There hasn't been a single Sonic game since Adventure that hasn't.

    EDIT: That is, of course, barring Sonic Advance. However, notice how the game kicked ass? Not only that, it featured Zones, music, bandik's, and level design that made it play and feel like a Sonic game. Now why can't we have more nods and design styles akin to the Megadrive games like that in the bigtime Sonic games?

    The problem is that 3D Sonic games don't lend themselves as naturally to Zones the way 2D games do.

    And simply because it'd be on a Nintendo platform, I'd be surprised if the Sonic game DIDN'T have a new character. But then again, I wouldn't mind a Mario & Sonic game (it could totally work)

    Wasn't there rumors about Naka and Myamoto working together to make a Sonic and Mario title?


    Well, it WAS a rumor. You know how rumors fly, faster than news...

    From over at CulT's discussion of all this:

    My response:
    That would ruin the character forever if you ask me.

    When will everyone get back to when Sonic was an eco-anarchist or at least a green anarchist and Dr. Eggman was a imperialistic capitalist (as oppposed to an anarcho-capitalist)? :P
