    Wow that sums up how whiney and imature almost all the classic fans are, it makes me hate being a classic fan seeing how the rest of you (mainly most of the people here at sonic retro) act. It’s sad really

    I like how you shamelessly group everyone into two categories. See? This is exactly why I’m leaving. And yeah, it’s not funny. Grow up. This is the second time you’ve done this here and it just makes you look like an idiot. No need to bring the stupidity from the forum to the front page.

      It’s a joke, dude. You know, a joke? A light-hearted stab at all sides of this stupid little squabble? The irony is that none of this crap will matter right about when the game is released. All this overdramatic reaction, generalization (sup there mr. green eyes bawww… yeah, real mature; not like whining about green eyes wasn’t stupid, but you were far more immature), and other dumb bullshit will absolutely stop being relevant after Sonic 4 is released. The best thing to do if you’re totally sick of it is click the “Ignore Topic” button on that dropdown menu and move on to the rest of the forum. Contrary to popular belief, Sonic 4 is not the only thing you can talk about on the forums. True story.

      Yeah, PC2, you’re one to talk.

      I agree with PC2, but both sides are out of control. This site is still slightly more biased towards the retro crowd though (for obvious reasons).

      HEY GUYS EVERYBODY LOOK AT ME I’M LEAVING THE COMMUNITY BECAUSE OF HOW BAD YOU GUYS ARE

      I mean, really?

    True, I think looking at this sheet makes the Classic Fans appear to be the ones with knowledge and the modern fans the ones that just don´t wanna believe it could be bad (fake optimism), they seem to just suck up everything Sega throws at their feet at really great!
    Thats how it feels when I look at this sheet!

    In fact, I know some people that will play it even if it sucks balls just because Sonic is on there, I mean, really? Are you gonna buy a game that really is a pile of crap? IF it turns out to be a pile of crap that is, heres still a little hope that Sega actually might do something about it, even though the chances are lower than the ground of the sea! :/

    Personally, I´ll play the trail game on the 360 and then decide if its worth it or not, I´ll probably buy it in the appstore once the price sunk to 79cents or so! :/ But seeing how that crappy “port” of Sonic still is priced for more than its worth, that might take a while! Sonic = Cash Cow! 🙁

    Its one thing for Sega to be lazy with the graphics and all, BUT its another if they screw up the gameplay/physics involved! If Sega doesn´t fix the physics then this game will be dead on day one, it will be thorn apart by critics and fans alike and only the people with no taste in good or bad games will enjoy it even though it might play like crap! I mean, what I saw in the alpha footage already looks like you run into a booster and you run for 2 miles straight, 2 seconds of platforming and more MUCH more running on automaticly placed boosters.

    I really hope Sega doesn´t screw up again in the gameplay department, really really hope they don´t! 🙁

    If it really turns out to be crap, lets give it the nickname “New Sonic the Hedgehog” and just ignore Sonic 4 althogether as a sequel!

    I really don´t know what to believe anymore, I´m kinda interested in the game but hugely disappointed in it at the same time!

      I agree with you there. I’ve been hoping for a new, good 2D sonic for a while now. Course, I don’t know how good it will be, because I’ve been on this site every day looking at all the new things coming in, and the videos and pictures have made me nervous. I’m a old school fan, but I really want to be as oblivious as the newer sonic fans =(
      I guess we still have Sonic 2 HD Right?

    You know, I’ve been a huge Sonic fan since ’91, and I’m siding more with the ‘modern fans’, in that I’m not going to go into any nerd raging until much closer to the game’s release, or after, when I can play it myself and it makes me rage in person.

      Seconded, thirded, motion carried.

      I still find the shitstorm amusing, mind. =P

    Okay, I’ve been playing Sonic since I was a kid in the early 90s, which I guess makes me a “Classic gamer,” yet I have the opinion of a modern fan. :shrugs:

    If anything, the columns should read “Hard-Core Gamer” and “Optimist View.”  haha.

      Well, that’s why it’s in humor, dude. =P No need to look too much into it.

    The series shouldn’t be repeating itself so much. It needs to evolve. “Sonic 4” should have never happened.

    • Reply

      I mostly agree… But I don’t think the title is creating the same problem you think. Calling this “Sonic 4” gives it certain a expectation that the is supposed to be a direct sequel to S3&K. By all accounts, this game should be S3&K at it’s core, only with new levels, a new story, etc. It should be the same but better. So far it doesn’t look that way… at all.

      All of this could have been avoided is they simply called it Sonic Rush 3 or something similar. Everyone would have known what to expect. Instead we’re getting Sonic Rush 3 under the guise of Sonic 4.

      It’s too bad, because we should have had an evolved title, like you say, under the name of Sonic 4. Instead we got… well… this.

    I know this is a joke, but “Endri’s words confirmed?” He didn’t tell us anything new about anything except the Special Stages (and I had guessed as much myself based on the announcement Q&A and the leaked footage) and a vague comparison to Sonic Advance 2 which I frankly don’t see. The only thing that Endri said that needs confirming is that it’s in/near its complete state (hence the physics and jump mechanics won’t be fixed), which there is no evidence for unless one has no idea how the rating system works.

      Oh, but don’t get me wrong, I found it funny. I just hope the joke-smugness doesn’t turn into real smugness at any stage, because then it’d be smugness. And that’s no good.

      He had described the boss in private to Aquaslash days before this picture had ever surfaced. I think he stopped saying things to people publicly because they didn’t believe him, so he just talked to people in private about it. He gave me some extra details as I asked, too. I think you just had to have him on MSN.

        Of course, this was a joke, but I forgot the Sonic community doesn’t have a sense of humor.

    We’ve only been putting up with all this bollocks from all sides and every angle for TEN FUCKING YEARS;
    why would you think our sense of humour might’ve run out?

    I mean, it’s not like the average Sonic joke invoves him exploding into mspaintblood or commiting suicide or being retarded or gay or stoned or dead or getting raped by kirby or murdered by snake or mario or Shadow being emo or fans being in denaial or your HI-LAIRRIOUSLY witty commentary;
    NO, THERE’S NO REASON WHATSOFUCKINGEVER FOR US NOT TO BE SPLITTING OUR SIDES WITH LAUGHTER, SO HA. HA. FUCKING HA.

    “ahem” sega, are you reading this? If by some miracle you are could I please ask in a most humble manner that you shut everyone up with )GOOD( games, thank you.
    ….PPYYYYYYYYRRRRRAAAAAAAAARRRRRGG
    Bloody internet.

      The interesting thing about it all is that the people freaking out are very much a vocal minority. In other words, more often than not, people are sane and reasonable about the announcement of an upcoming Sonic game. The fact that this is being made such a big deal of is definitely worth poking fun at.

      Unless I’m just totally misinterpreting this comment, anyway.

    I wasn’t entertained at all by this until I hit the very bottom of this: “It’s only Sonic 4.” Then it all made sense.

    What I do disagree with though is the whole “classic Sonic” representation. I’ve been playing Sonic since I was 3, played every mainstream console game and almost all the spin-offs, and I am totally excited for this game and don’t think it will “suck” by any means, even music.

    Okay, let me get one thing straight.

    Sega’s not driving this series into the ground.

    YOU are.

    They’ve put up with this bullshit for 11 years, and they finally release a 2D Sonic. It’s the closest thing to perfection this series has seen since Knuckles Chaotix.

    And you have the unmitigated gall to bitch about his EYE COLOR.

    WTF?

    The Sonic fanbase SUCKS. End of story.

    P.S. If you classic-fags at Sonic Retro were trying to prove you’re better than us, you failed. It just proves that modern fans have more sense.

        Well, after dealing with these people, my sense of humor has all but disappeared.

    I like how many people are getting spergy about a joke. Good times.

    I’ll say something totally unrelated to the main arguments of this post:
    I loled at all the furry costumes XDDD

    Now talking about Sonic 4, I don’t care if Sonic has green, black, rainbow or no eyes (Anyone reminds Sonic Pocket Adventure?); I only want a Sonic game with good jumping, good spindash, good balance in running/obstacles/exploration, good visuals, good music, and good ol’ gameplay. In a nutshell, i want a good game that worths the 400 MS Points that it’ll cost.

    Anyway I still have a bit of the “classic Sonic gamer point of view”, despite I knew about Sonic when it came out on cellphones (no kidding), so when I want to FFFFFUUUU about Sonic 4 beign similar to Sonic Advance/Rush, I FFFFUUUU about it. If I want to play Sonic Advance 2, I play Sonic Advance 2, right?

    Yes, Sonic’s fanbase sucks sometimes, but there’re fanbases that are much worse in my humble opinion, .

    Yeah, at first I thought the classic fans were overreacting. But after all the information that’s been revealed lately, I think the game looks like shit, and I’m not surprised. I mean, look at what Sega has been doing for the past couple of years… They’re just a souless, lazy company now.

    I liked Sonic Unleashed’s graphics, though. That’s about it. Sega should just stop making games and become an animation studio.

    Every time I see “sonic 4” it makes me wish that Taxman would finish Sonic XG already.

    I’ve seen Mario soaring through space working his way into crazy gravity scramble mayhem with ease and being praised for it (innovative gravity-defying 3D platformer with responsive controls), I’ve seen Megaman return to his roots in full 8-bit glory with the familiar intensity of the challenges he’s facing and being praised for it (classic side-scrolling 2D platformer with responsive controls), and then I see Sonic and…(neither) And then I see this picture and…(lol) Well this is quite funny, but Sonic isn’t getting enough love from either sides, fans and developers, retro and modern… Sonic was the first platformer I played and, although as much as I really liked it in the past, the truth is nowadays Sonic fails as a platformer franchise (not as a selling point though), and if the fanbase is as good as this chart depicts, it fails too *goes back to playing Super Mario Galaxy and “noobing” his way into Megaman 9 😀 *

    I’m sure Sonic Retro could make a its own Sonic 4, and it would be OVER 9000% better than Sega’s one.
    The true fourth installment.

    Please, consider.
