A lot of modern Sonic games are not to my taste, but what do the sales numbers look like? They have to have a following to keep putting them out, right?

I'm staying somewhat optimistic. I'm willing to bet that Park Avenue is the first level. You know that looking at only Green Hill in Generations, it would look just as linear and straightforward. However, Generations opened up to give us levels like Seaside Hill, which was a ton of fun. I do admit that I'm also getting kind of tired of them playing on nostalgia and revisits so much. I mean, we've seen the Egg Dragoon how many times? Show us the promised final version of the Egg Dragoon instead of whatever prototype Eggman's on now, and move on.

 

My biggest complaints so far, other than the nostalgia-reliance, is

 

1: Why are we still getting Wisps? I get that they want to keep the power-up concept going, but Colors specifically said that they went away afterwards. I tolorated it with Lost World because it was supposed to take place on somewhere that wasn't Earth, so while it was a stretch, I could accept that the Lost Hex was naturally a Wisp-inhabited planet.

 

2: Oh god, why are we returning to the double-jump? The jumping mechanics killed me SO MANY TIMES in Sonic Colors. Generations didn't need a double-jump, and neither did (the good part of) Unleashed. A decent jump makes it so that a double-jump isn't needed. It's too easy to end up spacing everything out so that the double-jump becomes the standard jump, and then what? Are we going to get a triple-jump? I say "Screw It" and go full Metroid if that's the case! (pun intended)

 

3: Why are we still spending so much time in 2-D? If they want to make side-scrolling areas, that's what Classic Sonic is for. Let Modern Sonic have a full 3-D experience, and save any mix-and-matching for the OC character. The excuse was there for the earlier systems that they couldn't handle a decent length, full 3-D game. Now we're on the PS4. Generations did not look all that bad. If you have to, keep things at that graphics tier and focus all of the processing power on level size!

Well the lyrical version of the theme song just dropped, sang by the frontman of Hoobastank of all people.

 

 

That sure sounds like a lyrical Sonic theme.

Here's our villain, everybody. I call him "Edgelord the OC." Although considering there's an OC maker maybe that's the point. I dunno. This could work out well. I kinda dig his theme song though. Honestly a lot of this gives me early/mid-2000s Sonic vibes and that's okay with me.

Or "Halface". If he's faster than Sonic he's probably mind-controlled and will be an ally later.

And it's voiced by Kain Highwind from Dissidia 012 and Final Fantasy 4 DS remake. That guy's voice is so easy to notice.

 

 

Apparently he also voiced Mephiles in Sonic 06. Hope this is not a sign of things to come.

Not sure where you got that information from, but Mephiles was voiced by Dan Green, not Liam O'Brien. Dan Green was also Knuckles and it was really easy to tell it was the same actor.

Then i got misinformed by some people telling it was Liam O'brien.

"Hey, it's not his speed, he must be using the chaos emerald to warp!"

"This is the ultimate!"

Looks like he's even edgier than Shadow. But he's not as edgy as Coldsteel the Hedgehog.

One might call him Infinite the Edgehog.
