Sonic back to 2D!


-HP-

Recommended Posts

Please, let this be good!!

"Old-school Sonic fans have long asked to see Sonic return to a more 2D style of gameplay" says Sega of America's Ken Balough. "Many liked the daytime stages in Unleashed, but wanted to see a game that plays purely similar to the early games of the Genesis. Project Needlemouse is that critical first step that brings Sonic back to his 2D roots."

Kind of a weird game to be posting on mapcore perhaps, but holy fuck I grew up with sonic, and they basically shitted on their IP when sonic became 3d.

Yeah right, they've been saying that they're gonna get it back on track over and over again for so many years. I loved the first Sonic games, hell, overall I kinda liked the Sonic segments of SA1 and alot of SA2 as well, but they've completely run that franchise into the ground, repeatedly. I kinda hope they can turn it around, but I seriously have my doubts.

But yeah, a 2D playing sonic game in beautiful 3D that embraces the fact that it doesn't have to play a lightning speeds all the time. That would be nice.

I think the Sonic franchise as a whole is utterly pathetic now to be honest. I mean, why does anyone even care about Sonic anymore? None of the games have been any good for years, he's the mascot of a failed hardware company, and I doubt any of the guys responsible for making the original decent Sonic games still work on the games.

Just how bad does an IP have to get before people face the fact that it's a nostalgic old memory that'll never be recaptured?

And anyway, there was a 2D Sonic game on the DS.

ok i am gonna be this thereads dedicated troll/douchbag:

so lets get started:

-the sonic ip has pretty much always sucked sonic 1 and 2 were fun gameplay wise becasue it was sort of original but the ip has run their course right than and there ... really the gameplay was pretty flawed in 2d allready.

-all the ip milking stuff like the god awful tv show and stuff like sonicspinball should have told people that this ip is not here to stay

-reboot after reboot after reboot is not gonan solve this ... sonic IS OVER

-that teasertrailer is pathetic its not worth anyones attention or bandwidth if you have nothing to show than dont show ffs !

i conclude EPIC FAIL on all counts
