Hey. Me again. If you all remember my rant from last night, then I think we can all agree that most of us, including myself, aren't very impressed with Sega making Sonic the only playable character again in Sonic Forces. But there's a couple things I missed during my rant that I want to talk about at the moment. Fortunately, this won't take too long as there are only 2 things I neglected to mention in my rant. So without further ado, let's go over them real quick. Here we go.
1: Lack of new gameplay ideas for Sonic's friends
During my conversation with my friend WishfulFun
, he mentioned that the main reason why Sonic is the only playable character again is that Sega probably didn't have any new gameplay ideas for Sonic's friends. If you remember back in the previous games in the series, then each of Sonic's friends can do different things. But I won't waste time with going over any examples. You guys probably know this stuff already at this point. I have to admit that it would have helped Sega if anyone told them any good gameplay ideas for Sonic's friends. But as you already know, that never happened, which is why they're NPCs once again like last time. However, if you had any gameplay ideas that would have been awesome to see, you can go ahead and tell me. Thanks, Wishful, for getting me back on track.
2: New character gameplay
Now to be honest, I was expecting someone to point this out at a later time since I forgot to mention this part of Sonic Forces that's coming soon. I am aware that there will be gameplay on a new character, but this leaves me with 3 questions: Who is this new character? What will its gameplay be like? When will it be revealed? All these questions will probably be answered in another reveal in the near future, I suppose. I mean in the first trailer before the name was revealed, we have Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic. At first, this had us thinking if this game was gonna be a sequel to Sonic Generations. Of course, as we already know, they confirmed that it's NOT a sequel to Generations. Until we gather more info on this mystery character, we'll just have to use our imaginations. And to be honest, even though Sonic's friends are not playable again, I'm still looking forward to this new character coming soon.
And there ya go. That's all I have to mention. If you have any more things that you'd like to talk about or if you think I'm still missing something, you may feel free to comment. That's it for now.
