Default Going into stasis until Sonic Mania comes out

Bye mate. Can someone wake me up when Sonic Mania gets released? Don't care about anything else. Oh if any Binding of Isaac Rebirth DLC comes out I'll have a quick pop of that and all.

Yeah... cheers... bye.

Centuries later, madhair60 awakens in alien future world. Flying cars, unlimited renewable energy, all mankind's problems solved. But even they couldn't fix Sonic.

Default This is what I accomplished today at work

In the year 2525,
If Madhair is still alive
If Sega can survive,
They may find

In the year 3535,
Sonic the Hedgehog will never die
Even if his revivial won't start
He'll live forever on Deviantart

In the year 4545,
Tails and Knuckles will do just fine
But Sega will continue on just the same
They'll give Charmy Bee is own fucking game

In the year 5555,
PC Gamers will still have to cry
Although they joined the Sega team
Atlus still won't put their games on Steam

In the year 6564,
Sonic strides across the earth once more
You can't see his wagging finger at all
His legs are now 500 feet tall

In the year 7575,
muteKi keeps Sonic scholarship alive
He's still analyzing Sonic 1
Will his Critical Look ever be done?

In the year 8510,
Sonic Team fucks it up again
Generations was actually pretty great
Why the hell won't you just iterate?

In the year 9595,
Sonic Mania has finally arrived
But Neogaf says "It's understood
that maybe Sonic was never actually good?"

Whoa-o-whoaaaaa

Well, I mean, it's a Sonic game made after the 90s, so yes. But that means that the value of those terrible Sonic statues will plummet, which means that I'll be able to buy them by the box. Then on Halloween I'll be able to fill my entryway floor to ceiling with them. When trick-or-treater enters my home, they'll be greeting by a cacophony of tinny voices saying "Se-gaaa", all of the them just out of synch with each other. They'll turn around to run, but they'll find a silent man wearing a Sonic costume blocking the way, arms folded. As the door quietly closes behind them, the continuing "Se-gaaa"s will drown out the screams. This experience will still be better than playing the game.

This game is gonna be cool as shit. Like, refrigerated shit. In the vacuum of space. Christian Whitehead's name makes all the difference. The man knows his Sonic.

M2's in the corner like "how the fuck we add spin dash to sanic 1" and Whitehead's like, "nah, man, I already did that, just take a look at this." But M2 couldn't hear him because he was a baka gaijin. Little did Sega know, though, that he knew more about Sonic than they did. In fact, it is solely thanks to Christian "Taxman" Whitehead's intense archaeological digs that we now know it's Sonic The Hedgehog and not, as Sega has adamantly claimed for centuries, Sanic The Headhag. Of course, now they know he knows better than them. Because, like, he's making a game for them. And they're allowing that. Or maybe Sega just picks arbitrary foreigners to make Sonic games now, and we just lucked the fuck out.

If Green Hill is any indication, the level designs will be all new even if the music and tile sets are reused. I would prefer more entirely new zones like Studiopolis, but this is OK.

Well in that case, you can just call me Oscar the Grouch, 'cause I got that puppy pre-ordered.

Sounds like it's still going to be pretty huge, too. But yeah, the themes may be the same, but otherwise this is like saying "World 1? But every Mario game has that!"

I hope we get a new Star Light Zone.

From what we have seen we're getting all-new bosses as well, which look good

Really yes.

If it was the exact same map of Green Hill Zone, then sure. But this is more like Green Hill Zone Act 4 and so on. Same theme, new levels.

If you want to say they're reusing Zone themes, okay, you've got a case. Maybe a little bit of a strange one, perhaps, I don't know, but a case. But it's not like they're reusing the same stages we got before. Just like 1-1 in Super Mario Bros. 3 is different from 1-1 in Super Mario Bros. or New Super Mario Bros., this Green Hill Zone Act 1 is different from the ones in Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic Generations.

As long as we're talking about it, there was a follow-up about the level ratio:

Quote:
Why so many classic levels? (Even if redesigned) would be great for a 100% new sonic experience. That's the dream!
Quote:
for the 25th anniversary Sonic Team wanted to celebrate the classic titles in a new and exciting way.

Yes there are more reinvented stages in Mania than brand new, but Mania is a big game so...
