    This is so stupid. So let's boycott and send Sega a message by buying Sega products. Yeah! That's like boycotting China and buying lead Barbie dolls as a sign of protest. No offense, China.

    i think Sega should just drop Sonic all together and get Yu Suzuki to finish Shenmue instead...or release another Jet Set Radio game. Most people who like Sonic only like the few good games from the 90's and complain about how much Sonic games suck now anyway which would mean that Sonic has more fail games then good ones which makes Sonic fail.

    Where intellect matters
    They do know that Sega is even adding back in chaos emeralds, and "super saiyan sonic"...right?

    There's even a list of achievements that makes it look like the first episode will be a slightly more modern Sonic 3 and it'll have quite a bit of gameplay.

    Anyways, funny shit as always. This is is even more ridiculous than people boycotting Left 4 Dead 2 and then eating shit up like new Madden releases.

    This. Sonic (and, to an extent, Sega) is completely outdated now.

    you know what I do not get? If they don't like it why won't they simply ignore it. Thats what the Zelda community does with the CD-i games and it has worked out pretty well for us.

    Okay, so...

    1. A game is announced that goes back to the original way of doing things.

    2. Old-school fans who liked the old way are pissed and boycott the game.

    3. Their boycott is done by buying the old products sold by the company.




    Either I'm missing a crucial detail or they're just fucking stupid...

    Don't worry, it's the latter.

    But this is the case with Sonic fanboys. They like roughly 3 or 4 Sonic games and call everything else terrible or a butchering of the franchise. Not saying there aren't butcherings of the Sonic franchise, but there are solid Sonic games outside of the original series (like Sonic Rush or the GBA titles).

    Here is the thing.

    People wanted a NEW game not a rehash. We wanted a true Sonic the Hedghog 4 and we got Sonic the Hedgehog 2.5 but Prettier.

    How to make it Sonic The Hedghog 4?

    I like Sonic games 1-3, but they look the same with small graphical changes. The way sequels go, you got Sonic 4... Be glad that they didn't butcher it.

    Middle of the ocean.
    [​IMG] So they are boycotting Sonic 4 and buying Sonic 1. .... Now that is retarded and I don't give a damn if they want a true sequel. At least they are getting something. On another note Sega is still making money.
