Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal -Demo review-

Soooo I just played the demo for Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal….and my feeling are slightly mixed on the matter, like most demos, it drops you in the game nothing explained or anything of the like, luckily in this case you get an option of 3...

No need for much spoiler tag on that. Classic Sonic coming now from "Another Dimension" and not "From the Past" was clearly them not knowing their cannon one bit (in fact, I think Classic Sonic presence in this game is useless, and he shouldnt be there. They just wanted people to think it was a "Generation 2" game). At this point, I'm just taking every games like a total "RESET" of the universe, with each game BARELY connecting to one another. Which is why it made made laugh when Rouge was telling Shadow in the stage 3 of his DLC that they were going to rescue Omega, like in some kind of pre-Heroes story...yeah right, like you really care about your continuity and timeline . Yeah I know, it's all just an Infinite illusion, but still...

And what I liked is pretty much the whole setting of the game. I usually don't like "dark" games, and even less in a Sonic world, but I feel that this game had great moment (the escape from Death Egg, and Metropolis in Stage 16 were really great epic moments, at least for me). And people are screaming the game is way too short, but they forgot that EVERY Sonic games are short if you're just rushing through them. For me, the fun of Sonic games are mastering the stages, and there were some good time challenge in this one where you had to be optimal. So if I need to master a stage, I prefer 1m30-2m00 stages than 5m00+ stages where I can screw up a lot more.

And since I always love Sonic cheesy musics in the 3D era (Sonic R soundtrack is a classic for me), I was in love with all the cheesiness Forces music was brining

EDIT: But about Silver, I guess they might also do an Episode Silver in the future. I mean, without Episode Shadow, Infinite have no backstory in the main game. They can certainly try to patch Silver existence in this world that way. Like he's coming from this future where Eggman REALLY conquered the world, and Sonic was really dead and he wants to fix that.

Well, Blaze and Silver are actually in the main Sonic Universe now, thanks to the handheld games I believe. At least I clearly remember them hanging around the Sonic crew in the DS version of Sonic Colors (the Wii version was only Sonic & Tails). And yeah, there was no explanation as to why they were there. I mean Blaze originally is from another dimension (Sonic Rush), not from the future (Sonic '06). At that point, it just doesnt make any sense, we just have to accept they're there, and that's it. Though as to why Blaze is missing in Forces? Beat me! Maybe she's dead? Everything will get retconned anyway next game

Viva la continuity

Yeah I felt the same way about Smash 4 after finishing the single player stuff, thinking I wouldn't care for it much even if I played multiplayer. I was wrong though. The game has a ton of depth to it that makes getting better very satisfying, despite appearing to be a relatively simple game. If you have a few people to play with at a mid/high skill level, it has potential to be a lot more entertaining.

I tempered my expectations for FFXV pretty early on due to all the drama surrounding XIII and its sequels, which I think allowed me to enjoy the game a lot more than some people. I actually used to make fun of the first few trailers that came out more than anything, calling Noctis a "pretty emo idol boy" or other similar things, but I ended up liking his character too.
Haven't played either of the Dissidia games for the portable systems myself, but if I can try it out on a bigger screen with a device that doesn't cramp my hands, then I might try out Dissidia NT. Looks interesting enough to me so far, so we'll see.
