I want to put it out there that I dislike people being rude on the internet and dismissing something before even checking up on it.

It's always amusing seeing people getting their hopes up for a new Sonic game.

Oh god...their rationalization of the character designs is a strong combinations of "buzz words" and "we think our audience is too stupid to understand what the character's personalities are."

The long limbs were clearly compensating for something.

Edit: Tbh, I kinda dug the cutscene at the end. It felt Dreamworks Animation-like. They may have been able to successfully hit the tone and humour they were striving for in previous games.

I think Jeff was right: Sonic has always been aimed at kids, and this update is because they think these designs will appeal more to the kids today. That's it.

I don't get all the hate for these character designs. Knuckles has pretty much always looked like that. The game looks like fun. It's definitely aimed at kids but still looks fun.

"This was the era of 16-bit games...nobody was doing stuff in games that had this much character"

Except in 'Boulder Dash,' an 8-bit game from seven years earlier. Rockford could tap his foot in boredom just as much as Sonic.

Everyone who is complaining about Sonic being different. You are not the target audience. Just like Sonic changed in 1999, he will change again to fit a new target demographic.

Most people complaining will probably still buy Sonic anyways.

I burst out laughing as soon as I saw the new Knuckles. I thought it was a joke at first! No wonder Sonic games have never been good, when you have these idiots making them.

Sonic was a Master System game originally wasn't it? Seems like these guys were a little late to the party.

I really want to like what they've done with Knuckles, but I can't get past his baby face and lanky-ass legs.

Sonic games always look super promising at this stage.

I like the concept art for all the characters, but as soon as I saw the 3D models I just felt 'yep, it's gunna go downhill again'. I'd dig a more cartoony Sonic game with those pencil drawn versions.

The TV show dialogue sounded cheesy as all hell, but that sequence at the end gave it more context. Seems alright. Kids will like it. I'll probably watch an episode just to see.

if this ends up sucking will it really be that much worse than almost any other Sonic game? Also they kept the name Eggman for the reboot, they done fucked up

I like that they are trying to build a world and giving the characters and story more attention. I wish them the best of luck. We need way more games suitable for kids at the moment.

Only Amy wears clothes, presumably to hide her lady parts, so is Sonic's dick on his neck? Gonna need an answer, Sega.

Wait, did that TV guy use his experience as a Simpsons writer to show how the series was constantly expanding on the story? Dude, one of the main jokes of the Simpsons is the fact that everything returns to normal at the end of the episode regardless how out there each episode one.

Nope, the Master System version was actually released after the Genesis/Mega Drive version.

I went back and watched the first episode of Sonic Adventures. Oh man, it was rough to watch but I forgot how much attitude that show had. And from the clips of Sonic Boom (TV show) it appears that is back, which is good. I won't get any sort of hyped for the game because, well, it's a Sonic game. But I do hope it surprises me and is good.

Knuckles is such a terrible character. What animal is he even meant to be?!

I can understand that they need more characters than one - but really using these poor Sonic characters which no one really cares about isn't the answer.

They'd be better off coming up with a new Sonic support cast for the most part.

I mean characters like Robotnik can stay (again "Eggman" is as stupid name and it too should be terminated).

I love knuckles I always thought he was cooler then Sonic and the others but now he looks so rubbish the new design is horrible. Why is he double the height of everyone else? Why does he look like a rugby player on steroids? God I havent even played a Sonic game since generations and I don't think I will be getting this one

I don't know if it's...

the lethargic, disinterested Japanese man in the beginning,

the alternating dubstep / Hans Zimmer music throughout,

the designers trying to convince you that these are interesting characters in a meaningful world,

or the name "Sonic Boom,"

but something about this video package is hilarious.

As I was watching the developers talking, I was looking to the drawings in the background. In those drawings, Sonic and Knuckles have almost the same height, but Knuckles is still more ripped. That would look so much better and more familiar.

No, it was originally a Genesis game (released in June of 1991)... and after it became successful it was ported to the Master System (in October of 1991).
