Default Sonic 25th anniversary announcements (Sonic Mania, Project Sonic 2017)

Haaaa did anyone else see the Sonic 25th Anniversary stream, with its "big reveal"?

What a train wreck!

EDIT: Well there we go. Sonic Mania. Looks like most of the mediocre 2D Sonic games we've seen in the past 10-15 years!

"""""COOL!"""""

Default I'll never escape

Watching the stream now and it is deeply sad.

I'll probably be all over Sonic Mania, though. Having Christian Whitehead on board hopefully means the physics will be good. And playable Tails!

The cycle begins anew...

Hahaha what the hell.

This is the Sonic '06 of streams.

Everything that could go wrong is going wrong, plus some unexpected wrong things on top of that.

They're doing a sing-along but they didn't mic the audience. It is quite awkward.

I know! This is what I have wanted from Sonic, Sega! Holy fuck, why did it take so long? And the team behind it should be solid.

I'm...excited? For Sonic? Gonna wait fast?

Sonic Mania will probably not suck, but I admit I'm not a fan of the new layouts and stages in the mobile ports of 1 and 2

Could somebody just tell me what went/is going wrong with the Stream? That's what I truly care about most in this world. I tuned in briefly just now and there was some guy surrounded by other guys (video game developers?) who maybe looked stunned and embarrassed, but I didn't stick around long.

Oh man, where to begin?

Severe scheduling problems. Incredibly shoddy camera work (like a cell-phone quality video that didn't properly capture the stage, or the screen, ever). A high-pitched buzz that drowned out the sound for most of the stream. Microphones that didn't work for long stretches of time. DJs trying really hard to impress people. It goes on and on...

Holy crap, no kiddin'.

I mean, Sonic Generations 2 or whatever is pretty cool and all, but just look at that.

e: Not any indication of anything, but is it just me or did Chrono Trigger possess the last ten seconds or so of the Mania trailer's music?

So, I like the fact that it seems to be faster than average Sonic 2D games, but...

Honestly, a lot of why I like Sonic Generations' 3D levels over its 2D levels is the 2D levels feel more like a maze and an obstacle course designed to disrupt your speed and progress rather than how the 3D levels were designed to facilitate your speed.

This game so far seems like more of the 2D levels rather than the 3D levels in terms of design.

I hope I'm wrong. I want to like this game. I want to so much.

*slow clapping, steadily building in speed*

Yeah, Sonic Mania looks like the new Sonic game we wanted for 20 years.

Yeah, I kinda thought I heard some SNES soundfont in there. Definitely sounds different from the rest of the music.
