Great, more Classic Sonic fanboy pandering. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it may still be a fun game and all, but that trailer largely hinted at this being another "Sonic only" title, with all the others, once again, being brushed aside and treated as if they're insignificant. Sure, Tails and Knuckles are playable in Sonic Mania, which is a plus, but why can't that be the case in the "main" Sonic Team-developed titles anymore?

all signs to this near decade-long "solo sonic" trend lead to sonic '06, that's the last main sonic team project to have other playables that are not sonic (or a reskin/form/variant)

when that crashed and burned, i guess sonic team looked at their sonic adventure formula of a whole roster of characters going at their own variants of levels and said "fuck it"
(but honestly the reason why sonic '06 is a huge bunghole is because of internal strife and being xmas rushed)

and people ask why "sonic adventure 3" still isn't a thing when sonic '06 effectively killed that formula

i'd say solo sonic started after SRA, but blaze hardly controls any different from sonic

...

did we really need another GHZ reskin, this is just it with sand

this music is ear murder, you can't just slap sonic 1/2 percussion samples to the sound of a YM2612 (or at least a close emulation) getting sodomized in a sex dungeon and call it classic sonic music

I personally didn't think the music was all that bad, but I digress.

At first, I had very little interest in this game, since it seemed to be little more than a straight rehash of Generations (which, as I've said in the past, is pretty overrated), where they're once again milking the Unleashed daytime engine, making Sonic the only playable character, and treating other characters as if they're insignificant just to please all the idiots who use Sonic's so-called "shitty friends" as a scapegoat for the past games supposedly being "terrible". Since there's actually a third playable character (which isn't Sonic for a change), that does throw that trend out the window just a tad.

However, I'm pretty mixed on the third character, mostly because I just don't understand Sonic Team's logic at all. They've avoided making other characters (including Tails and Knuckles, even) playable in almost every game in the past ten years out of fear of backlash from the purists and fanboys, and then when they actually do decide to go through with it again, they create a new character (which is most likely why they got said backlash in the first place) instead of using one of the established characters that they've been neglecting for so long. You'd think they would have done that first before adding a new character into the picture, but whatever.

Overall, I guess you can say that I'm mixed about the whole game in general. Even now, I'm still far more interested in Mania than I am in Forces.

Here it is, the long-awaited reveal of the third playable "character":



I'm... I'm not sure what to think of this, to be honest. If I do decide to get this game when it comes out, I probably won't have any use for this feature.

CACs in my sanic

jesus poledancing christ, what have you done this time sega, that's like the biggest pandora's box of canned worms you can open on the sonic fandom

imagine all the OCDNS that'll come out of that

also remember there was almost a contest that would've decided sonic's sidekick for a game, so sega has explored the idea before

I saw Shadow, Metal Sonic, Chaos, and Zavok, but I didn't see Blaze among them. Now that you mention it, though... The new character they showed after the fact, which is apparently controlling them, does look similar to a prototype design of Blaze's. I wouldn't be surprise if they took inspiration from that, seeing as the Time Eater's design was clearly inspired by some old Sonic 1 concept art.

Guess who's finally playable (in a mainstream Sonic game) for the first time in eleven years?

11 years since shadow's previous playable role in a mainstream modern sonic - broken
10 years since a not-sonic has been playable in a mainstream modern sonic - broken by non-hedgehog CACs
10 years since any non-hedgehog character has been playable in a mainstream modern sonic - broken by non-hedgehog CACs

sega's finally breaking the "solo sonica" trend, and should they go full swing with giving others of the sonic cast their own story modes, they can finally put it to pasture for good

for one, tails needs to throw away that oversized gameboy and actually be worth a shit again
and unless the game is "tails adventures 2" sega should lay off giving him any more gadgetry other than the remote robot and tornado

actually i'd appreciate a tails adventures 2 one of these days

Somehow, I'm not surprised. In one of the Green Hill videos, Silver or one of the other characters had already mentioned that Chemical Plant was in the game.
