Stuff people found by hacking the demo.

Electricity, Fire, and Bubble Shields are apparently in the game.   



 
  Music buried in the demo's code somewhere+ Stages + Bosses
(Some more leaked tracks are floating around Youtube somewhere).

   
  • Chemical Plant
  • Green Hill
  • Sky Sanctuary
  • Speed Highway
  • City Escape
  • Seaside Hill
  • Crisis City
  • Rooftop Run
  • Planet Wisp
  • Casino Night Zone
  • Metal Sonic
  • Shadow
  • Silver
  • “Death Egg”
  • Perfect Chaos
  • Egg Dragoon
  • Boss LastBoss (Time Eater) (name of the file)
Wait, is that it for the stages? Seems pretty short.

Ugh.

At least you'll be able to kick Silver's ass instead of being forced to play as him!
 
...but it would be better if he didn't appear at all.

Believe it or not, I don't really have a problem with that. This game is supposed to be a tribute to all eras of Sonic, and I'm sure there are some people out there who care about the new stuff. Even I liked Sonic Adventure 2 at the time, so I think it will be cool to see Shadow in the game just so long as they tone down the ridiculous gun-play and "dark and edgy" elements they tried to introduce in later games.

This is excellent news! Sonic 3 & Knuckles is my personal favorite Sonic game, and the elemental shields were a part of what made it so great!

I look forward more to the music in Sonic games then the game itself.
 
Shame.

Glad i'm not the only one.

@FreakAche: You're obviously right, but I just can't get behind it. Shadow and the cult surrounding him is everything that is wrong with those goddamn titles from that era, and Silver--like everything attached to Sonic 2k6--should be put in the warehouse from the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark if you get my drift.

#8 Posted by FreakAche (2953 posts) -
@iAmJohn: Yeah, I get what your saying, Shadow fans are a little weird. 
 
Also, has Silver showed up much in anything since Sonic '06? I remember he was in those PSP racing games that I never played, but I can't think of anything else.

That's some Green Hill Zone if I've ever heard one.

#10 Posted by iAmJohn (6120 posts) -

@FreakAche: He's in that Mario & Sonic at the Olympics crap. Other than that, he's mostly just been cameos in Smash Bros. and stuff.

#11 Posted by FreakAche (2953 posts) -
@iAmJohn: Huh? He was in Smash Bros? Was he a trophy or something?
#12 Posted by iAmJohn (6120 posts) -

@FreakAche: He hangs out in Green Hill Zone, dude. Check the loop; he occasionally glides through it.

Shadow hasn't actually used guns since his game. But since the script writers from Sonic Colors are returning, maybe his boss battle would poke fun at that dorky game by having him ride a motorcycle around and shoot at Sonic with an Uzi while bragging about how cool he is.
In fact, I'm almost expecting them to do something like that.

Technically Sonic 2k6 never happened. Cue the jokes in the game about Sonic not knowing who the hell Silver is.

I liked Colours just fine, good direction for the series to go in, but this didn't seem like that good of an idea from the beginning. I tried the demo and it was pretty meh in the way that some of those older Sonic games are definetly meh, atrocious framerate didn't help it either though that might just be the PS3 version, or subject to change.

If it against all odds is ok I might pick it up, but for now it's wait and see as usual.

The music is cool though.

#15 Posted by FreakAche (2953 posts) -
@PerfidiousSinn: Hmm... I never actually played Colours. Did it feature a lot of humour or something? Was it actually funny?
#16 Posted by JackSukeru (5912 posts) -

@FreakAche: It had a mixture of cringe-worthy material and some actually refreshing self-awareness if I recall. Not too great, but not all that bad either.

Where is the YouTube video of Ryan ranting on sonic, it needs to be posted in this thread to clear your folks heads

Pretty much. They had a bad way of dragging on some jokes way too long, but it was actually funny at some points. They need to keep portraying Sonic as a kinda crazy 90s caricature, it worked pretty well.
#19 Edited by PerfidiousSinn (748 posts) -

28 minutes of gameplay, including them showing the hub worlds, Metal Sonic boss battle, and a couple levels. This might get taken down soon because this is the second upload I've seen of it.

Green Hill zone gets me right at my core, I haven't played any non Genesis era Sonic games too so my love is pure.

#21 Posted by Toms115 (2316 posts) -

nice to see sega reppin sonic heroes. dgaf what anyone says that game rocks.

#22 Posted by PerfidiousSinn (748 posts) -

I may as well keep updating this topic with the latest, instead of making a bunch of others.

Dreamcast Era Trailer, showing off Speed Highway, Seaside Hill, City Escape, and a super secret mystery character reveal.

#23 Posted by PerfidiousSinn (748 posts) -

Modern Era Trailer, featuring Planet Wisp, Crisis City, and Rooftop Run. Seems like Wisp power-ups from Colors are returning, but only for Planet Wisp. Interesting. And there's another secret boss reveal at the end of the trailer. Even more interesting!

Just a question.. why are they still making Sonic games?

Because they make money.

#26 Posted by PerfidiousSinn (748 posts) -

Hey, there's a new demo on Xbox Live and Playstation Network. It's still Green Hill Zone, but now it has Modern Sonic and revamped physics for Classic Sonic. Also, this one won't expire...allegedly.

#27 Posted by RudeCubes (139 posts) -

@Azteck: if they're FUN sonic games, which this definitely will be (for me at least) if the demo is any indication, I see no problem.

#28 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5256 posts) -

Checked out the new demo. To be honest they nailed the sense of speed with the modern stuff. The controls seem a little tighter, then again the last one I played was Sonic Adventure 2.
 
I know Sega are trying to trick me with the whole Green Hill Zone deal, and it's kinda working. If anything I am more interested in it than I was with Sonic 4.

#29 Posted by bobafettjm (1487 posts) -

This game looks like it could be pretty fun to me. I have not really liked a Sonic game that I have played since Sonic Adventure when I first bought my Dreamcast, but I might have to get this one.

Can't make a good Sonic game? Just remix the old ones.

I have nothing against it. Mainly because i want Sonic The Hedgehog in the Green Hill Zone not Sonic The Werewolf gettin' medieval.

I am genuinely excited to play this game all in 2D as classic Sonic.

Modern Sonic can go die in hell.
