Can't regular Sonic have classic Sonic like games too? Just willing to stray from the formula farther as needed (i.e. Sonic Advance, Sonic Runners, or even other 2D experiments that draw their basis from the classic formula.)

Only the first part. He plans on finishing up after he's done comms. Plus I hear he's also going to be doing a final part once Mania's out and I'm done streaming.
>>
>>387004852
Its set after 1
>>
>1: Sonic
>2: Sonic & Tails
>3K: Sonic, Tails & Knuckles
>Advance: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, & Amy
If Mania doesn't have an unlockable character, then Advance 1 still has the better claim as the true Sonic 4.
>>
>>387005109
So you're saying he'll just bounce back over and pass through him with his temporary invincibility? That kinda sounds about right.
>>
So what will happen to Dimps Sonic games if Mania takes off and this dev team starts getting work for newer low budget games for handheld and relatively small console and PC releases?

Seizure Sonic is for ADHD spazzes who don't appreciate the simple beauty that is Super Sonic.

You do acknowledge that Advance 2 happens before adventure, right?

>>387005560
And I would love it if we could get an Advance spiritual sequel that still plays close to the classics.
>>
>>387005721
Because Mania is stated to be directly after 3 and CDs stages in Mania are all updated/upgraded. Basic logic man.
>>
>>387005721
>>387004852

Sonic CD comes after Sonic 1. Sonic in CD looks like Sonic 1 and his Spindash is a prototype of the spindash he uses later.
>>
>>387005821
Sonic has a lot of sequels, your point being?
>>
>>387005916
it was made after sonic 1 and made before Sonic 3 so logically where the fuck could it go anon
>>
>>387005721
Tails isn't there and there's a hidden bonus image with Tails saying "See you next game"
The spindash is a work in progress
Sonic doesn't know the insta-shield, he can't turn into Super/Hyper Sonic yet

CD is between 1 and 2. It's before Sonic ever met Tails.
>>
>>387005884
Manual says it takes place after the angel island events, not specifically 3tho.

>>
>>387006103
I think for a handheld title it is baller though.
>>
>>387006028
If you go and think about Mania being in an alternate world, it makes sense.
>>
>>387006086
Angel island IS the name of the Floating island
>>
>>387006103
Also the only elemental shield is Lightning and it doesn't even let you double jump anymore.
>>
>>387006139
I read the manual. That’s why I put it in the info graph because it supports my proposition.
>>
>>387006078
>chronological order
>implying
Sonic 2 came out in 1992 while CD came out in 1993 yet Sonic 2 still takes place after CD so that defeats that argument

Oh right, that's a big one as well.
>>
>>387006250
hes just a retard whos theory is flawed
>>
>>387006214
Nope. That's a shitty retcon from Adventure.
That was supposed to originally be only the name of the opening zone.

The original name for the Island is Floating Island or in Japanese 浮遊島(Fuyūtō)
>>
>>387006214
In the Modern games, sure but in 3K it was just the name of the first zone. The whole island was called the Floating Island.

>Angel Island (エンジェルアイランド Enjeru Airando?), previously known as the Floating Island (浮遊島 Fuyūtō?)
>>
>>387006390
Mania manual calls it angel island. Can’t be a retcon if 3D games don’t happen afterwards, which supports both my and gemerationsbro's timelines.

Boats float too.
Technically the name "Floating Island" is probably a double entendre in that it can refer to an Island which is floating on an ocean(which Floating Island in 3K does at the beginning since the Master Emerald was stolen) or it can refer to an Island floating in the air/sky.

>>387007254

The timesplit happens after 3&K, Mania's continuity includes everything pre-SA1 including Sonic the Fighters, but in Mania's continuity, the events of SA1 onward never happen, instead it's the Best Timeline where Sonic never went 3D and the next canon installment is Mania.
The Modern continuity is every game from SA1 onwards, except Generations which was confirmed to not be canon.

Put your trip back on.
When Amy remembers CD she clearly doesn't remember herself or sonic in their classic designs

The CD storyline in the Modern universe is a separate thing.
>>
>>387011417
That would be OP as fuck though. The emeralds in-game leave you to stay on the pedestals in Hidden Palace until you get all the Super Emeralds. You can get all the Super Emeralds in Mushroom Valley if you know where the rings are.

>>
>>387011604
>When Amy remembers CD she clearly doesn't remember herself or sonic in their classic designs
That is purely due to Sonic Team being lazy and not wanting to make custom character models for Classic Sonic and Classic Amy.
>>
>>387011671
Peel-Out makes you go faster, and keeps you in non-ball form which has it's occasional uses. Besides, if you need to roll you can just press down.
>>
>>387011772
the game comes out in less than two days, it's finished. the final copies have already been shipped
>>
>>387011674
It was actually put in pipeline but squareenix doesnt have enough people spare so its on backburner again!
>>
>>387011671
Super Peel-Out is faster to charge up and faster then a Spin Dash while you can also just roll instantly after you do it.
>>
>>387004345
This is shit. And "pint-sized" is at best just an in between of classic and modern.
>>
>>387011430

>>387011671
peel-out goes faster

>>387011604
honestly, I'm pretty sure that was raw laziness on Sega's part and they didn't want to make separate models again for one flashback for a character most people didn't know existed until Adventure

>>387010947
they could do a Mania 2 and 3 before people start to treat this shit like Megaman

>>387011067
do they unlock more characters?
like, just being able to play as Metal Sonic would be sugoi as fuck
>>
>>387011597
I don't think so, Megaman wasn't widescreen and you couldn't even slide, I'm sure they will keep improving and adding things to the gameplay and probably graphics as long as it makes sense, all mainline Sonic games are pretty different after all.

It doesn't really matter at this point until Sega actually releases another classic-style game, if they ever do.
I hope the sales of Mania reflect that people still love the classic gameplay style, it would be cool to see them let Taxman push out a classic game in between 3D games.
I know for sure after Mania sells well that they're going to let him finally do an updated port of S3&K like he's always wanted, and since Mania ties back to classic games the sales of those on something like the current gen consoles' online stores would surge too.

Okay guys, there's 5 ??? on the extra menu. 3 big ones and 2 small ones. I assume the big ones are the new moves, so what's the third one? As for the 2 small ones??

Clearly there are three selections. The two small ones are highlighted alongside with the left ones as well, indicating that it might be some sort of Sprite, Mode or Character switch.
>>387012141
Tails gets a tail attack from Sonic Advance and Knuckles gets to punch from Sonic Advance.
>>
>>387012272
pls god no
>>
>>387012179
Looks like finding out that the insta-shield and super peel-out are in the game (while also being able to have all three moves including the drop dash equip at the same time) have made people happy again.

>>387012183
It's that main melody, anon. It's good for the soul.

I say it's because Sonic Adventure is a soft reboot. It also showed Metal Sonic kidnapping Amy in Green Hill which wasn't in CD anyways.

There's an alternative CD timeline in the Modern Universe.

cool if true

>>387012206
I think it'd be more trouble than it's worth to model a classic-styled game in 3D when Taxman has already proven he's got a more phenomenal understanding of the classic gameplay than Sonic Team does.
I say let 3D be the experimental grounds and let 2D be the grounded, classic gameplay.

I-I never left it. The game looked like exactly what I wanted. I'm getting remixes of my all time favorite zones and some of my less liked zones got in and were improved. I hate Metallic Madness in CD and now it looks like it might be one of my all time favorites. Oil Ocean, man, Oil Ocean was improved by adding another unpopular zone's gimmicks. That is impressive as fuck. And Lava Reef has gone from a zone I was never that impressed with save for the great storytelling it had in the background and act transition to one of the first cave/lava zones with speed and flow.

I'm hype as fuck.

Wrong, the area in the flashback was actually Beta Windy Valley. Like I said, Sonic Team probably just didn't want to make whole new assets for a 5 second flashback.

>Super Peel-Out is faster to charge up
No it isn't. You can charge a spindash faster depending on how fast you push the buttons

A spindash is also far quicker to execute if you just want an immediate spindash while SPO is delayed.

SPO is better for manipulating upwards inclines for high air times though.
>>
>>387012367
No, a modern Sonic game in 2D. Again, a Sonic Advance spiritual sequel could work well.

Wait, wait, wait, guys the abilities are not part of the extras on the menu. When Mark got the peel-out, >>387012202 didn't change at all.
This means that whatever the extras are in this menu, they're not the abilities. The abilities are likely selected from the character select or automatically activated

They could have just reused the assets from Sonic the Fighters which still looked good at the time so there's no excuse. They just didn't do it for consistency but because of that the classic universe is it's own thing...too bad.

Taxman's Sonic CD 2011 had mods, but very seldom. Green Hill was ported but it was an alpha. Very simple shaders exist. Characters like Knuckles and Metal Sonic have been put into the game, but exists only as a sprite swap. If Mania modders get their shit together and put in cool ass shit like Mario, then maybe we'll have a deal.

Literally pointless in 2D just like the homing attack. The added attacks were pointless in a game where you're running(like Knuckles punches or Sonic's somersault...who uses that shit)

Pic related. It's clearly a new adventure since Mania Mode is the Sonic Mania adventure. It can't be Knuckles' Story in Mania, because that's just selecting Knuckles himself. It could possibly be a 3&K Mode or a new adventure featuring Knuckles-oriented stages like Pumpkin Hill Zone.

Nope. I fucking love most Sonic games.
If we get fucking City Escape Zone, I wouldn't mind. I love anything and everything coming for Mania.
>>
>>387015660
I think the general consensus is that Adventure gameplay has potential that was never explored thanks to Heroes being something completely different thanks to not being a sega console exclusive and Sonic06 being a failure.
>>
Why are you fuckers so bad at games? I've seen people whining about Sandopolis for weeks (if not months) in these threads, saying it's too hard or too long. I just played 3 & Knuckles for the first time and Act 1 took me just over 5 minutes and Act 2 just under 7. A good chunk of the act 1 time was spend on the boss and act 2 took me longer than it should have because I fucked up the one repeating section a couple of times. I still finished with plenty of time to spare.

Good level btw. The ghost thing was neat and kept me on my toes, although I was disappointed they didn't pose much of a threat when it got to maximum darkness.
>>
>>387015739

I love playing through Sandopolis as well. It has great flow and Act 2 has some fantastic speed sections, plus it's horror atmosphere is just the best. I usually beat Act 2 by about 5 minutes.
>>
>>387015768
7 Minutes with little in the way to reduce it. It's a chore.
>>

Never complained about the level, I actually like it more than Lava Reef.

>>
>>387015969
This surprisingly. I actually think Lava Reef is kind of a bland level after going through it so many times over the years, though I guess the lead up to the "stop hitting yourself" boss in the lava pit is pretty cool.
>>
>>387016060
Speaking of Lava Reef, did Mark ever find the HPZ entrance?
>>
Am I the only one who finds the intro music funcking disgusting?
>>
>>387015768
Act 2 it's the labyrinth zone of S&K, not a bad stage but I would rather not play it, act 1 is great though.

Also, I am the only one who thinks the music is much better on the Sonic 3 levels?
>>
>>387008259
What about 8-bit Sonic?
>>
>>387015892
I was Sonic. I plan on doing a Knuckles run tomorrow. I heard his game has a lot of changes so I'm excited to see how it plays out. I eventually want to try him in 2 as well.

>>387015901
Wrong.

>>387015926
The atmosphere is great and I love how different that acts are.

>>387015943
Had I not fucked up repeatedly like an idiot it would have taken me a little over 5. On my first attempt. I'm sure there are quicker ways through the level. The closest thing to a boring horse in the game was the Lava Reef boss. And even that was cool (although I'm sure it gets old in repeat playthroughs).

>>387015969
I like Lava Reef's music better and the look of act 2. But yeah I think Sandopolis was more fun to play.

>>387016004
It didn't take me much longer than most of the other levels. I think Death Egg took me just as long.

Mushroom Hill, Sandopolis, and Lava Reef 2/Hidden Palace are okay. Flying Battery, Lava Reef 1, Sky Sanctuary, and Death Egg are great.
So I prefer & Knuckles more.

Same. Which is a shame because the animation is actually pretty good. What's more disturbing is how they got someone other than Tee Lopes to do the music.

For Metal, I would normally suggest that he plays like Sonic CD with some kind of jet-boost Super Peel Out like he has in the Metal Sonic mod series, but now that Sonic has that I guess that's out the window. Maybe he could get his rocket boost or electric shield from his boss fight?

I don't care enough about Amy to write anything about her

I gave up on it. I've also come to understand why other people weren't very ambitious. It's all novelty; it'll wear off.
I honestly can't look at these threads anymore

Does this mean that Sonic is Miku and Tails is the Honey Nut Cheerios mascot? Eggman is Hanayo in a Gundam? Team Hooligan is Sanrio characters?

Amy doesn't roll into a ball when she jumps, but does have a short double-jump that also whips out her hammer and increases the radius of her attack to that of Sonic's Insta-Shield. Unlike Sonic Advance 1, she remains in an offensive state until she returns to the ground after double jumping. She can also Peel-Out but cannot Spin Dash, and has to destroy breakable walls using her double jump. Holding down while running causes her to start spinning along the ground with her hammer (front an upright position, like Espio's Spin Dash). This is essentially a Spin Attack with different sprites.

Metal has access to his Black Shield, which can cause him to hover horizontally through the air for about three seconds. It also reflects all projectiles. If Metal Sonic holds down while running, then this will also cause the Black Shield to generate. With the exception of also reflecting projectiles, this is essentially a Spin Attack with new sprites. However, if Metal performs a Spin Dash, then he'll move along the ground in the familiar ball form. If Metal Sonic runs at his top speed for five seconds, his turbines activate and he quickly accelerates, acting as though he just cracked open a Power Sneakers monitor box.

There we go. Amy and Metal Sonic given unique playstyles, while also keeping within the tradition of a single action button.
