I read a rather vauge interview IGN had with the developers. I think the BioWare director sounded a bit overly enthusiastic about the whole thing. SEGA also said that they felt that they are capable of making the RPG themselves being that they claim they are "one of the greatest developers." But wanted to add double the power by joining with another great developer. (Notice how I didn't add parenthesis in BioWare's case.) I think SEGA was afraid to admit they couldn't pull it off by themselves.

You know that interview made me feel better about the game. They got people who worked oh.....that one game(crap what the hell brain!) any way it was one of their big ones, Ha Baulders Gate! (stupid brain). So that made me feel better. Also they say they're big sonice fans, so it sounds likeit's somehting they want ot do as to appose to just being payed to do.

BioWare is making a Sonic game.....

Didn't see that one coming.

Edit: That interview on IGN was extremely annoying. It was basically just BioWare praising themselves and SEGA and not giving any info about the game whatsoever.

It was really dumb for IGN to interview them this early. They barely even got started to even have much of anything like a screenshot or something.

What's funny is that this is not the first time I've heard of a Sonic RPG coming out.  Back in 1992, back in a time when Sonic was actually popular and had fans Sega planned to make a game featuring Sonics sister that would be a conversion of a popular Japanese RPG called Popful Mail or something like that.  The plan was scrapped after Sega of Japan got nasty responses from fans of said game, but some of the concepts like a pink female hedgehog would enter later Sonic games. 

The second time a Sonic RPG was announced was when a group called Panovation Studios stated it was working on a MMORPG based around the Sonic Universe.  It ended up being a fraud, but they went to great lengths to make it seem real, even posting on Sega.com's forum claiming to have had interviews with Sega employees about the project.

So there you go, some fun video game history

I hate what the Sonic series has become: a 'badass' attitude that 14-year olds love combined with a miserable attempt at epicity what with godlike powers being given out like candy, all in a setting with realistic humans speaking to cartoon animals.

I'm 14. I object. Even I'm more mature than that. Sonic is aimed at 8-10 year olds. Hell, I stopped playing Sonic at 7. Too easy. Too many characters. Marios better.

Same here, don't stereotype 14 year olds, please. And we're the ones who actually talk clearly in CS, thank you very much (k thx bi  ::))

The supposed main antagonist looks a bit like NiGHTS.

Um, gamespot has a story about the game on its site.

The game is actually sounding like its pretty good.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Preliminary impressions have been good with almost all game sites. This game is sounding better.

Read the article. SEGA's latest attempts at improving Sonic's image haven't been stellar, but they are trying.
I know.

What does everyone have to say about this?
This is Mario syndrome. I hope they just quit and then get a new mascot to overuse.

I'm just curious as to how the speedy hedgehog will work in an RPG based game.
Charge attacks? Crash Bandicoot style levels?

But I can picture it after playing a game like Sonic Battle for GBA. And with a notable studio like BioWare working on it, what can we expect?
Something good, minus the GBA.

This game is Sonic Chronicles, right?

Here's a review, I hope it's the right game! :D

Based on the collective reviews of this game, it lies superior to mediocrity but just a notch below greatness.

Overall the game has great merits and is a must-have.

Oh dear god. After all the Sonic disappointments I'm afraid to buy it.
