Sonic had a 25th anniversary party at SDCC and announced a couple new games, one I'm more interested in is this.

Looks good.

Did it really take them this long?

I wonder why it's not on Wii U. Seems like a good fit for the console.

Because Sega always make absolutely terrible decisions about Sonic because they don't actually care about the franchise.

I wish they'd just hand Blonic over to Miyamoto or someone so they can actually fix the core gameplay and make it genuinely no fooling fun.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

That whole livestream was a miracle of nature. You should have been there. Jun Senoue banished the bees with guitar licks so sick they gave me liver failure. And then Sonic x Hello Kitty.

Mania has potential sine it's NOT being done by Sonic Team, but rather the Australian nerd who reverse-engineered Sonic 1, 2 and CD. He should know what he's doing. And that animation of Sonic on the title screen really fills me with hope, it's beautiful. Watch it again.


They also had this (???????)

Edit: Yeah look at this gif.

Hey.

I'm not saying it will be bad. But I am saying that I am not getting hyped yet because there is a good chance this will be bad.

First new song kinda has a good vibe going, very Sonic CD-ish.

Isn't it just like a bunch of old levels slapped together with like two new stages? How could it not be at least alright?

and the music!!

Sonic Mania? When are they gonna release Sonic Depression so we can even out our bipolar Sonic cycles?

Or is the idea that we're already living with Sonic Depression?

See that is what worries me. They do this.

They post a really good level and a remake of a original level or something. And then the full game comes out, those two levels are great and the rest of the game sucks.
