Oh man.

Jesus christ, a 10 second trailer that shows no gameplay is already making people rage. Green eyes, the wisps, gay overtones, small feet, "misspelling" of colours, and other shitty excuses to hate this on first site.

Not having your hopes up is one thing (I sure as hell don't) but the amount of ignorance here is legendary.

I would think it was pretty cool if it came out a year later. Sega keeps rushing games in hopes of making something people will buy. They have to put more time and effort into things.

Sega needs something that everybody would want in a video game: violence, blood, Guns, and more violence.
Maybe a create your own character mode.

And what about Madworld?

Oh also, Sega is just a publisher, it doesn't make games...

There's plenty of violence and guns in Sonic. And Sonic games are made for children, so blood would just ruin the innocence of the franchise. That's like making the ever-controversial "Mario Whore House" games.

Ok, let's go over this again.

A Sonic game.

Delayed.

A modern-day Sonic game has been delayed. DELAYED. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS. Compare this to the amount of FUCK-RUSHED games so far. I think they might actually care this time. Maybe.

Not all games are rushed.
The only one what was would be Sonic '06, Unleashed was in the pot for years, and other titles ran normal development time.

On a serious note, I think Sega should revisit Sonic CD. The surreal, psychadelic, and anime-touched world of Sonic CD is, I think, Sonic's true calling. And Time-Travel could look really kickass in HD.

Again, Sonic 06, it didn't work out.

That kind of ignorance is absolutely nothing new with Sonic.

You can find a download of the first stage's theme.

It's pretty loyal to the 16bit stuff.

Sonic 4:
Another claim to the re-invention of sonic. Another imminent failure. There is nothing amazingly groundbreaking or mind blowing to this game. It just looks like Sonic Rush with better graphics. And with each news update they dig themselves further and further into the same old hole.

Sonic Colours:
The ten second video is probably longer than the amount of time they spent thinking of this game. They may as well have developed a game about Sonic on an acid trip.

Ultimately Sonic Team couldn't give a damn what peoples opinions of their games are. Instead of putting out one quality game a year, they put out as many as 5 pieces of shit in one year. The sad truth being they probably make more money this way. The fact people still hold hopes of these games being decent after this long is laughable.

I think this sums it up perfectly.

Uh, why? He's pretty much right, whether anyone wants to admit it or not. Unless that was sarcasm - in which case, internet sarcasm isn't my strong suit.

The ONLY game Sonic Team has cooked up that's seemingly any good is Unleashed. For the most part, we're stuck relying on fangames & third-party companies to make anybody care about Sonic anymore, and that's just wrong on so many levels.

However, I'm still not judging Sonic 4 yet until I know more.

I am high disappointed with Aggressive's opinions (although the banished comment was a joke).

Games are just announced and rage ensues, I thought our veteran members were above that.

It's one thing to be pessimistic, but that was a bit......
:\
well--it seems this crew his hopeless.
No longer to we talk about Sonic as we do bitch and complain about him, not the crew I fell in love with almost 3 years ago. It's a shame.

Well, I've come for info on Sonic Colors.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNQrzkz_Z OU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIyPlyHqw FQ

Enclosed in these videos are scans of a look at an interview about the game, the screen shots look outstanding in my opinion.
But, what do I know, I'm just someone who waits patiently for the game instead of bursting out in a fit over a trailer.

I recently joined Sega's official BBS, and I'm pretty active there, I go by the screen name "1994".
It generally full of 3 types of people, the people who whine, for whatever reason, the adolescent fanboy types, and the rare folks like me, who just sit back and wait for the game, plays it and decides if the game is worth anything on their own judgment. It's pretty annoying, but that's the price I pay being apart of this fanbase. To be honest, I'm fairly hype about both Sonic 4 (even though I don't agree with the concept behind it) and Colors, I'll be sure to grab all 3 games (including DS version of colors, which is far more Sonic Rush-esque) when they come out.

Incidentally, I'm leaving this crew and entrusting my role as 50% leader (for whatever it's worth) to....no one. It dies with my membership. Not that it matters.
This place is too dark and pessimistic, and I see I am of a stark minority. To many complaint come from inside and outside of this fanbase, this crew was sort of a safe haven from all that, not that it didn't have it's complaints, but there was more optimism. This thread is on more life support than the SSBC.

And this place used to be fun. Now it's~

members complain about sonic
new member tries to join
doesnt meet criteria and is promptly told to gtfo
repeat

It's depressing. I know I'm rambling on a bit, so I'll just see my way out.

It's been a blast.

The crew you fell in love with was a group of die-hard Sonic fans that still had a speck of hope left for the series, and honestly thought Unleashed would be as good as it looked promised to be. Unleashed, like it or not, was what spawned the so-called "Sonic Cycle". Black Knight was an embarassment, and looking at how pathetically hard they're trying at appealing to the "old fans" it appears that Sonic doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt anymore.

Whether the games are playable or not, whether or not this one next game might be the most glorious light in the history of the franchise, one can't deny that Sonic is an embarrassment to look at now. Nobody takes the series seriously anymore, especially not the developers.

The Sonic Crew hasn't actually been about Sonic discussion for a long time. It's become a garbage dump of the shitstorms produced on the VG forum, all the hate for Sonic over the years.

Well theres not much to talk about anymore no new games in forever that actually matters or sparks any real creativity or interest. A lot of flash movies that feature sonic look like every other anime show in japan, nothing new happens. Would it be beteer if somebody died like aminor character or something or would it be better if we had a new face?
I just dont know.

I simply shed some very common knowledge on the issue. I've noticed 3 types of fans associated with the new games. The Nostalgia-fags who are nigh impossible to please, those who still hold high hopes that one of these new games will redeem the franchise, and the realists, those who realize the trends of sonic team and know that there is very little chance of these changing.

Enclosed in these videos are scans of a look at an interview about the game, the screen shots look outstanding in my opinion.
But, what do I know, I'm just someone who waits patiently for the game instead of bursting out in a fit over a trailer.

Oh please, you talk as if you're some kind of higher deity because you're reserving judgement. I made a snap judgement based on the limited information I had seen and easily identified similar trends with past 'promising' games. It's extremely immature to react in the way you have after hearing a lighthearted opinion that differs from your own. Though it does not surprise me, it is typical of the Sonic fandom.

To be honest, I'm fairly hype about both Sonic 4 (even though I don't agree with the concept behind it) and Colors, I'll be sure to grab all 3 games (including DS version of colors, which is far more Sonic Rush-esque) when they come out.

I came to the conclusion after Sonic 06 that I would no longer follow information about new Sonic games prior to release so that I would not set my expectations too high. I still buy all new Sonic games and enjoy many of them to an extent. But after this long it is incredibly hard to look past the same mistakes Sonic Team keep making and how a seemingly large percentage fail to see these trends.

Incidentally, I'm leaving this crew and entrusting my role as 50% leader (for whatever it's worth) to....no one. It dies with my membership. Not that it matters.

Holy shit, I come back for one post and kick up a stink with who I though one of the more mature members of this crew. If your post was any more dramatic they'd probably cast you for the next Twilight movie. You're not a minority, you in fact are in the majority. The mindless sonic fans who believe Sonic Team can change and will swallow their lies time and time again. Noticing this does not make me any less of a Sonic fan, I've found a medium to where I can enjoy many aspects of the fandom and tolerate the many downfalls.

It's been a blast.

This was an amazing read and if my post leads to the death of this crew, I'd be ever so proud.

Whoa, whoa, back the fuck up, here, hang on. Just hold on a minute, knux. If you go, and if Twone doesn't show back up.................that leaves..............me.............AND NOBODY WANTS ME LEADING ANYONE. I ain't good leading material. So just wait. This crew's just going through a rough patch, that's all. Those of us who are here, we wouldn't BE here if we weren't Sonic fans to begin with. It's just that the new Sonic Team has, like Heatnix said, not taken their own namesake as seriously as they should, and then everybody loses. We aren't complaining about Sonic, we are about the Team he's stuck with. Whenever a Sonic game actually made by this Sonic Team comes out, skepticism has become justified at this point. However, yes, nobody should jump the gun completely until the game is actually out.........it's just hard not to given this Sonic Team,s track record.

(And Agg, that last comment, sarcastic or not, is NOT HELPING.)

Sonic 4 is actually looking good enough so far. A little bit on the rehash side, but still good. Colors, however, I have that sinking feeling......but again, I can't say very much until more info is available.

Hahaha, Swackman.
This place is pretty dead.

it's better to just let it go, go to TSS or the Sega BBS I frequent now.
They're both a lot more lively.

I'd also just like to laugh at the "3 types of fans". I see two based on your list, thee "nostalgia-fag" and the optimists.

Realists, my ass, what you described is just being a bitch about everything.
It's really not an accurate call to include that as "Sonic fans" Aggressive. In fact, what's the opposite of fans?

Haters?

There we go!

Consider this my last post here. If you want to discuss, debate, whine over anything to me, send a PM.

Ok, I was gone for a while and once I return, I see the whole place has gone to shit. Like Knux, I thought this would be a place to discuss Sonic and talk about his games educatively without no biased opinions or retards who follow what everyone else said. The Video Games forum was what brought me here, and for the time being, I was a happy and proud member. Now, the regulars don't come, idiots try to be funny, and people bash Sonic again without real reason. The only reason I wasn't here anymore was because of both outside life, and because no one would really try to start a topic. I would usually try but ended up being ignored and flushed by either the ridiculous posts made by "smart" people, or by some other news of a game that would be forgotten the next hour.

Also, I can't believe this all happened by a troll who actually succeeded.

Whether it's true or not. I consider Aggressive to be a troll

While I won't be leaving the crew, it has actually disappointed me truly and it's sad to where it has gone. Maybe someday it will regain it's former glory, but now is the whole "apocolyptic" stage. I will still be here though, so if anyone wants to talk Sonic, then lets.

Congratulations on fulfilling every stereotype typically applied to Sonic fans. You've proved that you cannot hold an adult conversation and will defend the franchise to the death. I don't need to contact you by PM, because I know you'll read this.

I love this place. I make a post to sate 5 minutes of boredom and it has done much more than that.

I'm sorry, but I just have to side with Agg here. Both you and knux are hopeless fanboys who won't accept that Sonic doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt anymore.

Granted, if a Sonic game comes out and is actually good, that's fine. But you will notice, nobody has any mid-to-low expectations for Sonic 4 or Colors. Nobody, save 11-year-old retards. And don't give me any shit about "fans don't know what they want" this is the truth.

Pretty much what I see, but what do I know.

Hopeless, no. I've never set my expectations high for any game. Granted I have been disappointed with past games thanks to listening to "excellent reviews" but that's about it. I've always been optimistic about the games I play and if I enjoy them somewhat, then I am satisfied. Sonic has satisfied me but this is just from Unleashed and the Rush series at this point in time. I haven't bought any new ones recently yet I eagerly await Sonic 4, just because Sonic hasn't compltely crushed me. Shadow, I enjoyed. 06, while the glitches and frame rate issues were intolerable at times, I did enjoy somewhat. I loved Unleashed. Now, from what I've said so far, I bet you think I'm just a blind Sonic fanboy, but I just play games and I don't complain with the little things. If it's good, it's good. If not, move on.

Now, I don't know how the fanbase is reacting over Sonic 4 and Colors, just that Sonic 4 had people bitching over Sonic's eye color. All I know is the fans do know what they want, they just get so upset about the smallest things that it prevents them from enjoying the games. Since I started Sonic late, I never knew how big and amazing Sonic games actually were. Back then, it seems Sonic was almost flawless, and once the series started slipping, the fanbase might have just cracked and lost it. The way I see it, they still believe Sonic Adventure is brand new and that the games should only get better, but once a game didn't meet that expectation, they set it aside until eventually they have to complain about the smallest things just because they feel betrayed about how low Sonic has stepped today in their eyes. To me, Sonic is fine and is improving a little bit, but the fans seem to want the series to regain it's former glory overnight, which may explan their pickiness about the slightest details. I feel like I'm rambling now so I'll just stop it at this.

I think you forget my time in this crew. I've defended games that people have hated before. I can still sit there and enjoy a Sonic game despite some significant flaws. My choice to stay away from pre-release information means that when a game is released, I don't know what to expect and there's a significantly higher chance I'll enjoy it. The main issue I'm raising here is that i no longer believe the pre-release promises made by Sonic Team, being a loyal fan for this long allows me to make this judgement as I have seen it all before.

What you're talking about here is most certainly not the category of people I fall in to. That's the nostalgia-fags I mentioned, the ones that essentially want Sonic to return to his 2D days, an unrealistic belief, which is why they're complaining over such insignificant details like Sonic's eye color in Sonic 4. The game as a whole looks really enjoyable, and I will be buying it. You could even say I'm looking forward to it. What I came here to point out was that this title, is not a reinvention of the series. So to put this in the simplest way I could. I have a problem with Sonic Team, not the games they produce.

You'd swear I'd come in here and insulted you all for liking Sonic. In my opinion this is exactly the kind of conversation that should be happening within this crew. People offering differing opinions on games, talking about how excited they are and getting feedback from other fans. But if you'd prefer forums populated by the mindless pre-teens who think Sonic Team can do no wrong and that noticing the negatives to a franchise are not as important as praising the positives, then go nuts. You're just as bad as them.

I think my absence from this thread has lead me to a lot of reading.

I wish everyone the best as far as who is "leaving." I am very scarce here and on Newgrounds in general. I don't think this is a crew that you should necessarily have to "join" anymore. In fact, it's so hard to actually have a good discussion about the topic at hand (no matter what thread you're in, really) that it takes away from the experience.

I, for one, do not buy many of the new Sonic games. Mostly because money is tight. Partially because I know that Sega releases a game every year and doesn't put enough time into it. But I have hope for our blue friend. I try to catch up on goings-on in the Sonic world to keep up what I missed out on. I compare it to older and newer games I've played, and notice what's the same and what's different. Hopefully if it looks good I'll buy it. But other than that, I have a hard time connecting with Sonic fans because I do not buy and play many of the games anymore.

This does not mean I am "leaving." If you think about it, you could say I "left" a very long time ago. I don't see why anyone should "leave" a crew here. It's a message board. You come, you talk about it, you don't come back for a while. I don't think "leaving" a thread will accomplish anything in a discussion; I think if there isn't something you want to talk about, don't. It might seem like I am attacking you guys, but I'm not. This is just how I see things and how this should be run. And I don't think this club really needs a "leader," do you? It kind of just adds a nonexistent hierarchy to the place and it's a little unnecessary. Nobody really needs to enforce the rules because you guys know them. I think the crew should make unanimous decisions about rules and who should be allowed to post, and blah blah blah blah. I think we should just run everything by ourselves and decide by ourselves.

This has been my longest post in a long time. Choose to listen or ignore. I may be prattling on, but... whatevs! :)

I really couldn't agree with you more. I think by denying many lower post count users this crew has sealed it's own fate of a slow, drawn out death. New users means new views and opinions, ultimately more things to talk about.

Words of truth. There really is no need for a leader, ultimately they have no power over how this crew is run. Veterans are another useless addition. Whilst it was nice to be recognized as a long time poster in this crew, the title was ultimately unachievable beyond the original batch. It also served to do nothing but over-ride the opinion of users without the title.

This post actually rekindled some hope in this crew for me. If there's anyone left here that actually wants to see it live on, then I think these suggestions need to be taken on board. Hell, I might even stick around for a few posts if conversation picked up.

Whoa! No one responded to this? Are the creators of the comic stating that Tails is going to assassinate Dr. Robotnik to stop him from messing up the world? Are they parodying the Kennedy Assassination?

How did shit not fly when this was released?
