As far as sonic 4 ep 1 is concerned, my issue is they built the game from scratch. It felt quite different. Surely they should be able to get the same mechanics by using a mod of some sort of the original games, and build around it. Works in my head anyway :P. That and the music was shit, and they copied elements from earlier games instead of creating new ones. Much like with movies, it seems like people have simply run out of ideas.

Good to hear about Sonic CD though. I've never played the game either, and I don't recall hearing any bad reviews.

The songs aren't very long...I think they could include all the Genesis soundtracks, but I'll take what I can get :P They're probably trying to stick to Nakamura's stuff.

Corrections; Video Interview with Ken Balough on Sonic CD, Sonic 4


TL;DR, Sonic CD now will take place between Sonic 4 ep1, and Sonic 4 ep 2.....


*edit*

Guess this is as good a time as any to post this which I made:

Good to know that Episode II might make more of an effort of making it flow together with the other numbered titles.

Actually it won't. :P

Sonic CD still has no officially set place in the timeline.

Sonic 4 is trying to bridge all of them together more. It’s not trying to give Sonic CD a concrete place in the timeline, just say that “It happened prior to Sonic 4: Episode 1.” It does not mean Sonic CD is immediately before Sonic 4: Episode 1 and after Sonic 3 and Knuckles.

No. No it's not. Fuck Sonic Boom. :monster:

ForceStealer 08/29/2011 08:37 PM

That Japanese song is really obnoxious, imo. What's with all that Pokerap bullshit? :P

Uhm yeah, I would be begging for the Japanese version. Granted I was 16 when I first played Sonic CD and that creepy music made almost piss my pants in terror xD

These are the Japanese versions.

Japanese versions ? Wheee let's have fun playing this awesome Sonic game !

American version ? WELCOME TO HELL.

No wonder people prefer the Japanese versions, yeah ? :whistle:

Sounds pretty spooky.

Makoeyes987 08/30/2011 03:02 PM

Sonic Boom is honestly the only good track I love from the US version of Sonic CD. I like the original Sonic CD title track, but Sonic Boom just sounds so much more musical and coherent, to me.

But that's where it stops. The original tracks of Sonic CD possess a catchiness and relevance to the levels the US tracks kinda miss the boat on. The entire point of the game is seeing and hearing the effects of your time traveling does on the level. Like Palm Tree Panic. The music of the present features happy, cheering children which one could easily assume would be the local wildlife. Go into the good future, and the music is basically the same, except the music's on slightly higher octave and the cheering's even louder and more upbeat than ever.

Go to the bad future, and you hear the same melody. Except it's techno and flat. And the cheering children are now robotic and synthesized sounding now. Which gives the level a much more creepy and sinister theme.

I won't even go into the levels that actually have lyrics, like Metallic Madness's bad future, which basically has Eggman telling you you failed, get some help, and that you trying your best at this point is meaningless since you've already fucked up getting the perfect ending :monster:

It's those little details and bits of personality that make me prefer the original soundtrack much more. The US version has music that's good on it's own but they aren't really...Sonic.

Tetsujin 08/30/2011 03:05 PM

Also, just compare Metallic Madness Good Future in the US and original soundtrack. The US soundtrack doesn't make it appear like a "good" future at all.
