    Hmm...with that kind of plot, it'd be nice if we finally saw a sizable role for the extended SEGA cast in a main game again :).

    In case you didn't hear, Project Sonic's official name is now Sonic Forces. Here's a first look at gameplay.



    Pretty nice battle going on and the speed feels just right. I hope for the best for this one cause it'd be great to have a new modern Sonic game that was good.

    Colors? Generations? Why do so many people pretend these games don't exist or didn't receive positive reviews?

    I'll give you Sonic Lost World. But it was the only recent modern Sonic game that received a mixed response. Besides that and the Boom games, which are a sub-series, the Sonic games have been on an upswing.

    Anyway, modern Sonic gameplay is confirmed to include the white Wisp for boosts, 2D sections and Amy, Knuckles and at least some of the Chaotix as NPC communicating with Sonic.

    The premise is certainly interesting, chronicling what would happen to the world if Eggman finally won and how Sonic and friends deal with it (which gives me some Archie vibes). Given 2D Sonic's presence, I'm guessing time travel was involved in some way in regards to how Eggman was able to take over the world o_O.

    I guess I'm not surprised that the extended SEGA cast are once again not playable, and are just playing support roles via communicating with the two Sonic's, but I hope they still have a sizeable role in the game :ack:.

    I'm not surprised to see SEGA go back to the Colors/Generations formula since that worked out much better then Lost World's new style did. Looks pretty good :cool:.

    The graphics look great. The texture and detail is great, and I like all we can see moving around the environment and in the background :D.

    Well the game looks a little iffy so far. I mean the dark and edgy motif is looks to be something that can go well or end up like 06. Unless of course if this time they have more to develop here.

    I've heard people complaining about nearly everything in this gameplay video from the music to the level layout to the return of Green Hill Zone. While it does look a little underwhelming to me, the game is still in development and it still looks pretty good overall.

    I just hope people can stop complaining. If it doesn't look good, hope for the final product and more reveals being better, rather than automatically resort to cynicism.

    As of right now it looks pretty dandy, can't wait to see what else is in store for this one.

    I love Sonic but this is kind of weird to me. When people predicted this a while back, I thought it was a pretty bizarre idea to say the least. Now that I know it's real, I'm flabbergasted. I'm not really into the original character thing so this isn't for me yet they have an integral part in the story. I'm also not sure how different the gameplay looks for the original character. It looks like the 2.5D gameplay of Colors instead of something new.

    *sigh*

    Well, at the very least, I really like the music for Park Avenue!

    It's kinda funny how Sonic fans used to be infamous for flooding DeviantArt with original characters, and now SEGA is basically giving everyone free reign to make more. :p

    This was probably the best trailer for this game since the game was revealed almost a year ago in July. The animated cutscenes looks great as did the art for Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles plus the new gameplay footage. August is close to school time for me, so hopefully I'll get to play a little of it. That's the only downside for me. Otherwise, I'm glad Sonic Mania finally has a release date! :D

    Having the misfortune of knowing Tyson Hesse, (the animator) it really is concerning that Sega is hiring people who are notorious for their associations with cyber predators.

    I am loving this Sonic Forces music! I'm glad Sega listened to fans and managed to put this out.

    You want bad guys? Sonic Forces has got bad guys! Dr. Eggman isn't gonna make things easy for Sonic and friends and there's even a new villain that will mean a lot of trouble it seems.
