        This makes zero sense. Most everyone that works in any sort of restaurant is likely high as a kite as well. Also, why would you care if they know you're high? They merely exist to serve you food, not go tattle on you to the manager for.....having blood shot eyes and giggling too much?

        Waffle House is trash food for broke college students and blacks. Then again, even in college, I only ate there a handful of times. There are much better options for late night food unless you live in the middle of nowhere.

    It's not 06 tier, nowhere near that. Pop in is bad, but other than that it's fine, I'd go so far as to call it good outside of the cyberspace levels (which are either boring or just suck), it's very fun to run around.

        really, they could've given him some weight, at least made it so that sonic takes a second or so to get up to top speed and stop completely. having him turn and stop instantly like he does makes it feel like an unreal engine tutorial game.

          You can literally change how Sonic moves in the options menu. I spent time tweaking him and he plays almost exactly like Adventure Sonic. Feels very good.

      I haven't played a 3d sonic game in 15 years and I never liked 2d sonic but the time trial 3d levels where its like weird race or speed run platformer look fun, are there any 3d sonic games that are just that without the awful open world or shitty exploration stuff?

          It really is just SA1 remake.

          looking at generations gameplay there's a shit tonne of 2d sonic which I hate. I think what I want out of the franchise only exists in tiny bursts, i essentially just want sonic to be a weird 3d time trial racing game with crazy movement mechanics but I think all of the games are just shitty platformers with a sprinkling of rollercoaster segments that sometimes get to what I'm after. Watching someone play through one of the time trial segments in frontier almost got me to buy the game but then i realised that was a 60 second segment and every other part of the game looked shit including other time trial segments which weren't as well crafted or more boomer 2d shit.

          I hate that hitbox never made a 3d dustforce, 2d dustforce is just sonic but not shit.

          You literally never liked Sonic then. It would just be nicer of you to make your own IP.

            I never claimed to like sonic, i said from the beginning i don't like it but the time trial segments in frontier looked fun, for once focused entirely on speed and shaving off seconds through using interesting movement mechanics (not just glitchy speed run autism), for a second i thought maybe i missed something and the 3d sonic games were secretly pretty cool but i realise that its still the shitty platformer i though it was.

          You'll definitely want to get the DX11 mod; it massively improves performance on the Deck.
          https://gamebanana.com/mods/407367

          Also consider the Unleashed Project which ports the daytime (regular Sonic) stages from Sonic Unleashed.
          You could try Sonic Unleashed itself (emulating or otherwise the 360 version on a Series S/X) but it has a lot of baggage including GoW-brawler inspired night stages with slower more intricate platforming, and hubworlds with a heavy reliance on gated entries that required going through stages for collectables - Unleashed Project basically trims the fat.

          Should I play action or high speed style? Confused at what this effects

          It only affects your top running speed. Just go high speed style and change the options later if it's too fast for you. It doesn't effect cyberspace stages

              Ah. I'd say try the Unleashed Project mod anyway since you have Gens already but it does occasionally shift to unavoidable 2D sections so.

      Sonic Generations is the best overall game for that. The daytime stages in Sonic Unleashed are arguably the pinnacle of that style of gameplay, but then you have to play the rest of Unleashed, so I'd recommend either downloading a 100% save so you can just play those levels, or there's mods to port most of them into Sonic Generations

      Sonic Colors is also decent for speedrunning but getting S ranks requires farming for points with the shitty powerups which ruins it

      I agree with you. These are the same people who claim that any amount of classic-inspired mechanics (or anything for that matter) in the modern games is done for non-fans or whatever, but also praise elements that are almost inherently anti-sonic like the binary gameplay of the boost games and the weird shit from the mid 2000's that is apparently the result of passion and ambition and not a cold corporate decision to pander to then-contemporary trends.
      Shit sucks,

      Should I play action or high speed style? Confused at what this effects

      Action style is slow but easier to control. High speed is faster but more difficult to control, but not by much. If you've played literally any Sonic game then do High Speed. If not, then try out Action for a few minutes then switch to the other once you have a handle on the physics.

      Sonic Team fucks up a ton but at least they CARE about Sonic and genuinely want to make a good game with him

      343 turned Halo from a shining franchise into gutter fps trash in what? Little under a decade. Sonic can still make splashes here and there. Halo is just fucking dead

      I've played Sonic games for a good chunk of my life and all I see is a tech demo with half-assed animated "cutscenes", a poorly thought out capeshit-tier story and an open world that consists of grassland, desert and volcanic island, with the last two "Islands" just being parts of the first Island.

      The puzzles are just randomly dotted around and you do the same activity cycle for 20+ hours to progress the "game".

      This is just a glorified tech demo, a skeleton of a game. Maybe someday Sega could do something with it, but this is literally just barebones in every respect. I feel like I'm in a nuthouse when I see these fake-ass threads that praise it.

It absolutely is just a dumpsterfire tech demo and no amount of seething and coping from the other people that aren't you and I will convince me it's anything else and lie through their teeth about it.

        I've basically long-abandoned any hope of Sega or SonicTeam and the fandom ever recovering, especially after I got aggressively attacked and harassed online by some Manson-esque fuckwit back in about 2016/2017 just for daring to step out of line and liking other series. After that, I was just like "Fuck being nice to these nutcase retards, I'm goin' scorched earth on these gays!".

    "Open zone" is retarded. While it isn't a linear hallway I feel like a majority of gimmicks just do the work for you. Rail grinding and homing attacks which make up a huge percent of the gameplay are boring and highly automated. The puzzles are a snoozefest but the other minigames can be nice. I can see people having fun fucking around the islands with sonic's abilities.
    Cyberspace is just slight rehashes off generations' and unleashes' levels, but for bonus stages theyre good
    Even if it may suck compared to games like Yakuza and MG, I think the best part (aside from the music) is the combat and boss fights. Cool QTEs and moves that suit sonic's speed and chaos abilities, and its better than the usual "hit the guy in the head 3 times"

    If I wasn't a sonictard I'd rate it 6/10 but since I am 7.5/10

                You make it out as if having bad physics quirks is new to 3D sonic, or that the people who like the game aren't aware of it lol. People like the game in spite of shit like that, because when it's working (which is most of the time) it feels really good to play. That was the case for SA1, SA2, and now frontiers. You people who call something complete garbage just because it's flawed, like there's no fucking middle ground, are all retards who miss the forest for the trees

                If you can't see why early 3D sonic fans are seemingly enjoying Frontiers, then I'm assuming you've just never played the series. Fuck you

    I'M HANGING ON TO THE OTHER SIDE

    14 hours in and starting on the Third Island.
    Honestly, I'm liking it a lot. I think the biggest issue (aside from questionable jank like the single level ups for speed which take forever) is that they went TOO hard on the "you don't have to collect everything" angle.

    Like, that's great for the Koco, seeds, and purple coins. But honestly I wish they made the Memory Cores rare and individual. I really enjoy gathering the ones marked on the map one by one after I fill the map out but I'd enjoy it more if there was meaning to them rather than being a handful on top of the hundreds I've already gotten from enemies or those blue markers.
    Feels like they really wanted to make the game SUPER forgiving which kinda cheapens some aspects.
    Still super fun to break their structure flow. Getting a core that's really high up then landing to get another core that is below it without even knowing where that one was supposed to start from is always enjoyable.

    Also, the cyberspace levels are a perfect length for being a good breather from the open world stuff. I think the game's got a great flow balance outside of the way the rewards get kinda cheapened the more you explore.

    Also, holy fuck I'm a sucker for those Super Sonic fights. Wyvern was just the right amount of cheese.

          First I tried to just move out of the way.

          Then I mashed dodge and accidentally parried it and realized what I had to do.

          I might be retarded

          Oh I knew from the start, I was already parrying with Giganto. They made it pretty clear that was the only way to stop big attacks like that. I think with Wyvern they even outright said to get close then parry in the starting text.

          [...]
          Yeah, Giganto was alright but Wyvern just got me super excited for the rest of them.
          When it fucking warped up in the air and came down like a meteor only for a QTE to stop it and the rotation of it by hand was a perfect bit of childlike excitement.

          >I think with Wyvern they even outright said to get close then parry in the starting text.
          Okay yeah I'm retarded I didn't see that.

          The ending of the wyvern fight was very good. I just got to the 3rd island too. I'm doing an island a day.
          I'm also just doing all the cyberspace/exploration/chaos emerald hunting before even starting the story segment so I just get like an hour of straight of just running into cutscene after cutscene every island.

            It's understandable. There isn't really anything on the first island that needs you to parry. In fact, a regular enemy that mandated parrying didn't even exist until the third island.

    The game is good at making a first impression. First island is pretty big and fun around to roam in. Many little dopamine rewards. Getting to do a Super Sonic segment was pretty awesome (presentation-wise) even if it is kinda janky to play. Same case for the 2nd island.

    Then it starts to fall apart on the 3rd island. 90% of it forces the camera into 2D mode, which is obviously a crutch they've been using since unleashed to save development time and money. And then the 4th island isn't even a fucking island like the others. It's literally just a few tower mini challenges you finish in 30min, no super sonic part either. And the 5th island you immediately see they couldn't even be arsed to give Sage her own little tokens. The super sonic part is practically the same as the first titan and not even as cool. It's the worst titan out of the 4.

    And then the final boss being some shitty shootemup? And not even a good one. It's like they were trying to copy nier automata but at least in that game you spend like half the time in that mode. Here it was clearly used to save on budget.

    Conclusion: They put most of their budget at the start of the game to trick reviewers and fans into thinking sonic finally got a good game after so long.

      It's not a crutch, it's a deliberate gameplay style. It causes Adventure babbies to seethe endlessly anytime it's ever used. Them focusing on that gameplay style for one whole island is very clearly deliberate. People act like it's a dev time issue when it takes more effort to design decent 2D segments than it does mindless 3D environments to just blast through.

    I've been enjoying the game so far, with the exception of the Cyberspace levels. Sonic controls so fucking bad, it makes me wonder how we got from Unleashed to here.
    For starters, Sonic turns like a tank. It feels like every time I come up to any sort of slightly tight turn I end up running into the wall.
    Another thing is Sonic loosing all speed as soon as he jumps. Just.. why? It feels so bad. It wouldn't be so awful if you could continuously boost in the air like in Forces. But they removed that and drifting as well. Fuck man.

    This game is like fallout 76, just an awful mess of bad mechanics and technical issues, reviewers had paid trips to "ease" them into the game, but even fallout fans, literal drooling retards, had the gulls to admit when they're franchise failed them, Sonic fans have the be the genuine biggest mouth breathing desperate retards ive seen in the gaming industry to defend their wallet being stolen from with such a shoddy terribly thrown in tech demo of an awful fucking experience, go fuck yourselves, hope you keep getting scammed.

    The cyberstages just aren't fun and feel like Sonic Team couldn't figure out anything better than recycling the same concepts from Generations/Forces. They're also as short as the levels from Forces which is a legitimate problem.

    So is this game the final nail in Sonamy's coffin?

    Amy clearly isn't into Sonic anymore, it's painfully blatant in this game.

    Finally, halfway though the game, and a decent fucking level. My time on it's 1:21. I assume this is supposed to be the Sky Rail rip-off despite looking like Green Hill zone for the hundredth time.

          The level design is pretty good, you can do nice skips by air boosting and there are nice homing attack chains on the last rails section that serve as shortcuts if you react fast enough.
          It still has the shoddy controls, gimped boost, easy red rings and baby s ranks that every single cyberspace level suffers from, but it's not that bad, I feel like it fits this game's gameplay a lot better than most of the stages they reused.

      They actually did recently retcon Forces by saying it's the same world and Classic is the same Sonic as Modern just in the past.

      The "from another dimension!" was stupid as shit in the first place

        Source? Either way oh thank God. I don’t know why they felt the need to do that shit in the first place. Only made things needlessly complicated. Hope this mean Might, Ray, Fang, Bean, and Bark are no longer trapped in classic hell.

        Thank god. Fragmenting the timeline and available characters was a profoundly stupid idea. Why would you limit shit like that? Make it so some characters can only appear during classic or modern era games?

          Branding. They license Classic Sonic out as a different brand than Sonic.

            It's the same goddamn brand. If they want to make a keychain or some fucking thing with Classic Sonic. Just do it.

      It appears that way. If Frontiers sets a precedent for open-world Sonic games, it makes sense they approach everything as a seamless adventure. Imagine being able to revisit Station Square or Angel Island in the future.

    I’ve actually been having a lot of fun with the game. At the third island and have yet to get bored of the open zones; something about it just clicks for me.

    I can understand not liking the game very much, or being disappointed, but I don’t really understand the claims that the game is irredeemable garbage.

        Dude people saw forces was a mess even before the official release with that script leak. When it came out it somehow was even worse than expected.

        Most everyone knew Forces would be a lazy asset flip the minute Classic Sonic appeared. Sure Frontiers has cyberspace but it still manages to be its own thing.

          And then the fact the shadow DLC was largely pointless aside from the great remixes of Westopolis/Radical Highway, White Jungle, and Biolizard.

          No one thought this. In fact, Forces is more original than Frontiers. Fuck, I'd rather play Forces right now instead of Frontiers simply because its nicer to look at.
