>this was the last Sonic game to have music by Crush 40
also general Sonic thread
So how is Sonic and the Secret Rings? were they trying to push the dark stuff like they were doing with Sonic 06? Is the game a broken piece of shit? Is the story George Lucas-tier of terrible?
>Crush 40 did more to ruin Sonic's reputation
>not the god awful plots
>not the massive amount of unnecessary characters
>not the absolute shit game design featured in pretty much every Sonic game from 1998 to 2008
I guess they wanted to become actual musicians so they won't be remembered as "that bunch of fags who did the songs for all the bad Sonic games".
But they will always be remembered that way.
>there will never be a Crush 40 cover of Endless Possibilities
some of the shittiest bait I've seen in a while
> were they trying to push the dark stuff like they were doing with Sonic 06?
>Is the game a broken piece of shit?
It's playable. It was really fun for me when Unleashed, Colors, and Generations didn't exist. I can't enjoy it as much nowadays, but secret rings currently is the most gofast you can have in a sonic game, though you have to gain the skills to do so,
> Is the story George Lucas-tier of terrible?
Sonic goes into a story book and there's a bad genie that Sonic has to beat.
It's basically an entire game made of Sonic 2's special stages, except even less fun. The only reason it got a pass when it came out was because it wasn't as blatantly awful as 06.
Sonic's really unfortunate to have one of the worst fanbases in gaming. Whenever a game that doesn't play like their favorite style is mentioned, they automatically say that those games are terrible. I really don't understand why the "fans" that say "Sonic hasn't been good since..." still follow the series today. They should know by now that Sonic Team is going to keep making new gameplay styles every few games and that their favorite version will never come back to stay.
I sometimes wonder if they would be happier as Mario fans since Mario doesn't change nearly as much.
>They should know by now that Sonic Team is going to keep making new gameplay styles every few games
I wish they'd bring back Advance style games at least cause those were kinda fun.
>MY FUCKING FACE WHEN LIVE AND LEARN
>GIANT SPACE LIZARD ABOUT TO FUCK THE SHIT OUT OF EARTH
>NOT ON MY WATCH BARNEY THE DIPSHITSAUR
To this day, I think this was a pretty hype intro.
The problem here is that the Sonic fanbase just expects Sonic Team to make a fun Sonic game, idiots want them to stick to one style because they can't do good games and it's better if we settle for mediocre, which I understand and kinda agree, the problem here is that none of these people up there at Sega don't seem to have a lick of common sense, so how are you supposed to fix that?
>TFW as the battle goes on it gets more intense as they start to enter the atmosphere and start turning red
>They should know by now that Sonic Team is going to keep making new gameplay styles every few games and that their favorite version will never come back to stay.
The problem with this is that they never perfect one. They do something, start to work out the kinks, then drop it for something completely different.
While Unleashed, Colors, and Generations both play similarly, they're all so different with their own pros and cons that they could be combined into a really great game.
Dropping this here.
Someone should tell them that if you want your gimmick to work, fun is the first thing that should come in place, is button-mashing your way through 300 enemies in a row fun? Is looking for stupid things in a open field that has no coherent layout to it fun? Is breaking the pace of the game constantly any fun? No? Then don't fucking do it
I just wish that the fanbase was more positive and would actually look forward to or at least speculate about new games. There are things that I would like to say about Sonic Boom for example, but I'm not allowed to because of the fans' pessimism. And I know I won't be able to talk about any new mainstream games because a majority of Sonic "fans" will hate whatever Sonic Team does.
>is button-mashing your way through 300 enemies in a row fun
Yes but not in a fucking Sonic game. I say this yet I loved 360/PS3 werehog. All those moves were fun to use once you unlocked them. That fucking werewheel attack dude.
So...you wanna especulate on Sonic Boom?
to be honest with you I'm not as pessimistic as some other people are, and after the shock cooled down on me, there's this thing in my brain, that Sonic Boom is going to be one of those games that will get better as you progress, aka the upgrades and what-not, heck, maybe they'll include stuff in it that will make button mashing less tedious, increasing the running speed of your characters, and maybe some actually complex level design later on
Senoue is certainly looking older nowadays.
Pic related, he's the one on the right with grey hair.
In other news.
They're really going all out with this Boom thing.
Only good thing coming out of this is bat tits.
Makes my dick diamonds.
*Sonic x season 1
Nigga Sonic x season 2 and 3 was good shit especially season 3 with Cosmo and space adventuran to stop those meterax faggots. Drop that faggot Chris and it would've been even better. I'd honestly want another season of Sonic X. Maybe adventuring to Blaze world or saving the future with Silver arcs. Shit would be so cash but drop Chris. Everybody hates Chris.
