As an up and coming Games Designer (looking for a job) I was invited by a SEGA rep to an early showcase of games to the other members of SEGA’s internal group in the hopes of making some communication links. As such I got to see (but not play) a few bits of Sonic 4.

As much as I hate Sonic 4 and all it stands for, I honestly wonder what the hell they are thinking when they actually cave into the idiotic fans demands.

For instance this little feature.

A Classic mode for Sonic 4, a mode which will “fix” Sonic’s eyes so they are black and not green and also gets rid of the homing attack for you purists out there. I didn’t get to see if this changes Super Sonic’s eyes to green but honestly I don’t give a three headed monkey.

Anyone who feels proud about this addition to the game honestly in my opinion deserves to be shot.

I’ve got a couple of screenshots of it in game and I’ll upload those when I get back from work tonight.

Now hopefully I’ll never have to speak of this game again…

To me it’s perfect. I’m not saying I agree with it, but, now more people will want to play it.

And I don’t think it’s THAT bad as you think. As it is optional, why would you care? You’re not paying extra-money for having that second option.

Do you even know what you saying?! This is like a dream come true for millions of people and you call yourself a GAME DESIGNER! Who cares if there’s two different modes or sonic as long that game comes out I dont care. I hope you don’t have to write another article too because you are not representing Sega or yourself that well.

SEGA attempting to do anything to appease the fanbase is odd. However, having scooted around Sonic games since the release of Shadow’s giant flop, I’ve been suffering from Sonic withdrawals so bad that I literally burned out my CD Drive on my PC wherein my Sonic Mega Collection HAD been trapped, but I found out later that it got scratched to hell and back trapped inside the accursed CD platform thing…mo…bob.

Regardless, I’m not sure how I feel about this, I’d LIKE to play a reboot of the classics, but with SEGA’s current butchery of both franchises I enjoy (Sonic and AvP) I’m skeptical as I was with a black hedgehog with super powers holding a machine gun. I don’t care about his eyes or what he looks like mainly, I’m more interested in the story (the one surrounding the gaping hole called plot) as well as the game play mechanics.
