PLEASE tell me it's not some dumb-ass plot element.
Dumb-ass plot element, you say?
Sonicâ€™s universe is thrown into chaos when a mysterious new power creates â€˜time holesâ€™ which pull him and his friends back through time. As a result, he encounters some surprises from his past history including Classic Sonic, Sonic as he was in 1991.
Ugh, this is just sad. Sega has been trying so hard to make a good Sonic game by listening to the "fans". Everyone always says how good Sonic was in the Genesis days, so what does Sega do? Make all these side scrolling Sonic games and they end up playing like shit. (Sonic 4 anyone?)
I freaking LOVED Adventure. I played and replayed that game so many times. Yeah, the Big levels were pretty dull and the Amy levels were annoying, but there were only like 5 of them. The best thing about Adventure was...well, the Adventure! Running around Station Square, seeing Eggman build his empire in the Mystic Ruins, not to mention all the different perspectives storywise, it was a very fun game.
I'm not gonna lie, I haven't playing a 3D Sonic game in awhile, but...ugh. I watch reviews and I can tell Sega has no idea how to please their fans.
I just noticed how everything in classic Sonic's stage just looks so large compared to the Genesis levels. I don't like it that much, it makes Sonic look tiny. I mean look at those titanic loop-dee-loops and those swinging platforms could fit the entire Sonic cast on them! Not to mention the huge amounts of empty space where Sonic is just running forward or being bounced across a gigantic chasm.
Genesis Green Hill Zone was very compact, all the levels were. They were still big but managed to cram a lot more stuff in them by making all the obstacles smaller so you weren't just running through a lot of empty space.
No it makes the gameplay boring. You see in the genesis games every obstacle or platform was one after another, placed very close to each other and made every moment of the course full of content. But here the paths are stretched so wide that there is a lot of nothing from one obstacle to another.
It would be like playing Super Mario Bros and having to run a mile before reaching the next block or enemy.
Really? They look pretty floaty to me. And I see that you can't roll, near the beginning of the video the guy does a spin dash without stopping.
The scenery is pretty, at least. It just makes me sad that Sega have finally started stooping to giving the moronic fanbase what they've been asking for for the last few years - the same game they played in 1991, over and over and over again.

Well, you could always ignore retro Sonic and speedrun through the game Sonic Colors style if that's more your thing. In fact I'm sure that's the reason they've done it like that: make both old skool and next gen camps happy. I guess there's a chunk of people somewhere complaining how there isn't a way to play as it was in Adventure, but those games were pretty crappy anyway so fuck 'em.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
