People say they like somebody else's work more than yours, and all of a sudden you have to leave the project? I don't get it. This has to be, like, the first time somebody's ever left legitimate criticism of your work in light of a specific goal. All I saw on the old forums were people mindlessly praising you without any constructive discussion. Maybe you're not used to it, and maybe I came on a bit strong, but I see absolutely no reason for that attitude. There's nothing significantly different going on here, and a "Sonic 4" sort of concept would not have taken a Sonic CD direction in terms of style. That was specific to Naoto Ohshima's way of thinking, and it's pretty obvious that a sequel would have, again, been headed by Hirokazu Yasuhara. I believe Black Squirrel's mockup is more similar to that style. Why don't you, exactly? You're not helping at all. Be constructive, or... well, just don't reply. We don't need this crap.
