"Enjoy your future, it's gonna be great."

Also Sonic Mania opens up an obvious Time Paradox, as Tails is a playable character in it yet in Sonic Generations he does not appear to be familiar with Green Hill Zone at all.

Sonic has always been about preventing Eggman's dream of a roboticized dystopian future anyway

So the best representation Penders could get of a dude merging with all the alternate realities of himself is to make him buff with awful body proportions?

Ok.

I want edgy sonic if it's adorable 2000s edgy. How can you not enjoy Shadow the Hedgehog's intro?

Anyway who cares, if it's Generations 2 and they do a little more to improve the mechanics and make it longer and the soundtrack owns what more do toy want?

The bar is set pretty low for bosses too. Have there even been any mechanically good 3D era bosses?

The Egg Dragoon in Unleashed.

Which probably doesn't count because that was actually a Werehog boss.

it's mostly remixes of levels from other games as it turns out.

Does anyone really care if they call it Green Hill Zone when 85% of the level is going to be new?

I hope they get good music remixes though.

He was Robotnik in the Genesis games, the only ones that matter, so his name is Robotnik.

Actually you can clearly see his Fortress is stencilled with the words Eggman in Sonic 2 and furthermore

SyntheticPolygon posted:

Robotnik is the name you give an evil scientist while Eggman is the name you give a cartoon villain. I think the preference on name kinda comes down to whatever you think of him as.

I'm not sure why there's a distinction. He's a cartoon evil scientist villain through and through.

The reason why I am excited for Sonic Forces being post-apoc Eggman-has-won is that we get to see a lot more of him hamming it up.

More Sonic Forces info:

quote:

A new interview with Takashi Iizuka was included in the latest issue of Famitsu, along with info on Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces. What we’ve learned is below, most of which translated by various people, including SourceGaming and Woun. Nothing about Sonic Mania was of much note:

-The third character in Forces will be an “unexpected character”. Sonic Boom Sonic is NOT in the game. However, the third character “plays an important role in the story, and embodies the overall features of the game”.
-There is a circular ring of white stars above a Mirage Saloon screenshot in Sonic Mania, suggesting the return of Sonic 3’s bonus stages.
-“The boost system from Sonic Unleashed is present, as well as stages based on reaching the goal and clearing them a certain time limit also seem to be present.”
-“Classic Sonic stages are based on side scrolling 2D action.” Apparently, they will also have a twist.
-Sonic Forces will be at E3 this year.
-Sonic Forces’ story summary from the magazine: “Dr. Eggman took over 99% of the world. Sonic and the “Resistance” members are fighting. Then another Sonic appears…” It then talks about Classic Sonic appearing, Classic and Modern being two different style, and then there being a third one.
-Morio Kishimoto is the director of Sonic Forces. He designed Secret Rings, Black Knight, and Sonic Colors. He also directed Sonic Lost World.
-Sonic Forces has been in development since 2013, and started around Sonic Lost World’s release.
-“Forces was chosen as a subtitle from it meaning “power” and “army”. Two strong forces (Sonic and co vs. Eggman) are facing off in the game.”
-“This time, Sonic is fighting an Eggman who has nearly taken over the world.”
-2017, with the release of Sonic Forces and Sonic Mania, is a “continuation” of Sonic’s 25th anniversary.
-The game won’t be all dark and gloomy. There are some lighter stages in Forces.

And some Mania info:

quote:

Sonic Mania’s development began in 2015. Sonic Team wanted to do a new 2D Sonic game and “not a remake”.
The general rule for the art of Sonic Mania was to be above the level of Genesis, but under the level of Saturn.
The gameplay for Mania is similar to Sonic 3’s. The elemental shields were mentioned, but just that they are returning (that, we already knew).

Because it gives us Mike Pollock as Robotnik.

Secret Rings is way down there but at least I think it gets a bit more competent once you get past the mind-numbingly stupid idea of having to level up to get non-lovely controls. I'd still put it close to the bottom for that alone but if you're assuming max level it's a lot more playable than 2006 was.

I think I actually dislike Black Knight a bit more but that is because I hate the stupid sword mechanic so much.

I have played neither Black Knight nor Secret Rings but I still like Black Knight more because it gave us Knight of the Wind.
