New trailer of Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1.
Oh man, I want this Sonic game to come out and revive the franchise.
It just makes me feel ripped off... I'll wait until they bundle everything together at a cheaper price, since this is a game that I can go without for a while.
I strongly suggest you check out the sega blog and or check out some of the interviews about the game. Sega has already went on record to say the game is a full fledge release. They are calling them episodes simply because the story ties together similar to the way the story linked sonic 1, 2, and sonic and Knuckles on the Genesis.
I dont know which one to get. Wii, ps3 or 360. I would love to see a full side by side by side. Sega will most likely try their best to level the playing field so it should come down to which controller feels more natural to use.
I got a Wii and a PS3, but I think I might get for my PS3, since its in my room. And if they release it for iPod Touch/iPhone, I'm definitely getting it for my iPod Touch too.
It should help that the game was delayed until late 2010
The delay better help the game!
Oh man. Retro goodness! I can't wait. Trailer looks amazing.
I'll never forget that leaked mine cart level.
holy sh*t wow :D
I don't think this game is gonna fail at all. They're actually going back to sonic's roots. Love it and cant wait
Almost looks TOOO retro. Almost like they're replaying the first game with better graphics. What about some innovation too? I know that's not really the concept of a retro throw back...but Sonic needs a little something.
You cannot be serious. Plz don't insult the first 3 and S&K by calling this retro. This game looks terrible, and no where near as good as the old ones. Are people looking at the same gameplay as me?
i think you're looking at the old ones too much ... there was nothing wrong with that trailer
Finally, someone I can agree with. This doesn't look anywhere near as good (or as retro) as the classic games. This just looks like sonic rush to me.
man people hate on SEGA a lot but would nintendo ever go back and work on a game the design level after getting feedback from fans. one of the biggest complaints was sonic didn't move fast enough. Watch that teaser compared to the first and see how they've increased Sonic's speed. They are also going back to redesign a few levels based on fan feedback to give the game more of a continued motion type of feel. Say what you will about SEGA at least they are trying to give the fans what they want.
I appreciate that Sega has taken feedback from fans seriously, and that they are making this game. However, they've been putting out crap, and half-fulfilling experiences for so long, that it's hard to equate them with Nintendo. Sega is in a situation basically where they know full 3D world Sonic games just aren't going to work anymore because they don't want to spend the time and money to render miles and miles of unappreciated background for Sonic to zip through, and fans for the most part refuse to buy into the Werewolf (gameplay slowing) type of gimmicks from now on. I believe that they are doing this out of necessity more than anything else.
I put this in another post but your post kinda points to what I was getting at. People say SEGA are in bad spot, but most say that because the Sonic games haven't been up to snuff so to speak as of late. Most notably sonic unleashed and sonic the hedgehog game from 2006. However as a company SEGA has put out some good dare I say great games as of late. Valkyrie Chronicles, Yakuza, they published the first Condemned, Bayonetta, and while some would say commercial failures the conduit and madworld were pretty good games considering the platform. The point I'm trying to make is Sega's victory or defeat hinges on quality Sonic titles and I'm cautiously optimistic that they've finally learned that lesson. Also I don't think Sega will get away from 3D sonic, they just have to find another way to make the game viable. Possibly outsourcing the development while Sonic team simply oversees the project ala Sonic 4 with Dimps working on the game. We'll see. I don't think a sonic 4 failure will kill SEGA but it'll definitely kill sonic.
i'm not too big of a sonic fan. i enjoy the adventure series more than the 2D ones. :/ although Sonic chaos was fun along with advance on the other hand-held ones. Sega has made some bad games or poor choices. hope this works out for them
