SEGA announced Sonic the Hedgehog 4

I don't know you guys, but platformer genre is what I like the most, even more than adventure games. And, well, my avatar may be a giveaway, but it was always the good ol' Sonic games that are always my favorite platformers -even to this time, but, well, there wasn't that much of new platformer games recently.

Because of this, the last couple of years was full of rather hopes and disappointments. It was like I was informed about a new Sonic game, only to be informed again about how sucked it was, when it's out 6 months later. A new series of Wii/handheld games? Doomed to be sucked. A game with less characters and more platformer action? Sounded good, but the whole Werehog thing ruined that one. This kind of trial and errors continued, until they hit the spot and announced their ongoing Project Needlemouse to actually be, Sonic the Hedgehog 4. I mean, they're messing with the main series. If they ruin that up, there is no way out. Also, I don't really like when the classics go back to their roots to get their appreciation and respect after how they bit their dust from the 3D storm (*coughmegamancough*) but...

GOD I am hyped. It's said to be episodic (I'm not sure how that'll work) and besides PSN, XBLA and WiiWare they said this game will be out for another platform. If that's PC, now don't hold me.

It's a really good gift that they announced it in my birthday. Because... today is... yes... well... That's the day. Telltale also gifted me a free episode (which is totally by chance but still I<3U TTG). Day's going rad as hell I tell ya.

...anyway, I wanted to hear your opinions, if any.

    OH CRAP, THEY'RE TRYING TO ADD A STORY. RUN FOR THE HILLS.

    Regardless, I remain with my stance that this is going to suck. Why? Because that's how the cycle works. Just you wait.

    EDIT:
    Twenty two minutes 'til they announce something on their site.

    EDIT EDIT:
    Oop, Going onto their site and clicking on "Characters" has a locked button about the same size as sonic. Other playable character aleeeeeert.
  • Well, I don't like platformers in general, and as a kid I was terrified by Sonic, so to this day I dislike him for no good reason.

    But Happy Birthday!

    Maybe it's about level packs and etc... The episodic system of it, I mean. You never know. Well, it'll be hard to add a story with only one character and a villain anyway. (They confirmed this too, but they haven't mentioned about Tails and Knuckles. It'd still be hard if Tails and Knuckles are involved though.)

  • So, they're going a Megaman 10 route with the franchise, huh? Well, not quite Megaman 10, because they're not using retro graphics, and they're erasing a ton of crap from the franchise timeline. But yeah. I am now officially interested. I mean, I enjoyed the two Rush games and Sonic and the Secret Rings, so boiling Sonic down to what is fun and just keeping it at that may very well work wonderfully.

    That video could be totally cool, if they didn't totally imitate the teaser of Megaman 9.

    If this leads to this same kind of idea to a couple other gaming franchises I know, then I don't care if I see that teaser a dozen times over.
  • *declares supreme indifference*

    Sonic, meh. Give me a worthy Jazz Jackrabbit sequel!
  • If the fourth platform is PC I'll buy it in an instant on release.

    If it isn't - oh well, they had their chance...

    np: Tocotronic - In Höchsten Höhen (Pure Vernunft Darf Niemals Siegen)

    It's the iPhone.

    No big loss... ever since the "Pikachu In A Sombrero" 'shop, I can't get excited for this. I demand my sombrero thunder mouse!
