The PC/PS4 Bubsy game coming next week looks terrible just like the rest of the series!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4KIeAY9hHI
and to add insult to injury! The graphics in the trailer look god awful for a PS4 game in late 2017 nearly 4 years in the lifespan with the PS4 Pro in the market no less! And what even worse is despite it only coming out on the PC/PS4/PS4 Pro without the base Xbox One/Nintendo Switch in play. It looks way worse then graphically impressive games like Sonic Forces and especially Super Mario Odyssey which are both on lower powered systems like the Nintendo Switch for Super Mario Odyssey case and base Xbox One for Sonic Forces along with the Nintendo Switch/PC/PS4/Pro/Xbox One X look way better then this game making its butt ugly graphics look even more inexcusable!
I hope this flops hardcore because no one asked/wanted a sequel to this infamous series!
How do you manage to care this much? It's low-budget nostalgia bait aimed at a very limited niche audience. It is incapable of mattering. If you're offended that Bubsy has risen from the grave to have another go at Sonic's throne (ha!) two decades later, you have severely overestimated the situation.
I know that I am reacting to a game that I have yet to play/yet to come out, it just I have an ultra low expectations based on the franchises not so good track record. And mind you Dave the Video Game Critic rip the franchise to shreds in the in the past. So I do not think he/others are going to give this game very high scores. I could be wrong? It just I am not getting high hopes for this game unless it gets a decent rep from critics/users on Metacritic. So I will find out about it rep next week.
Sonic is just.. Not there anymore to me, The last Sonic game I played was Sonic Heroes on Nintendo Gamecube/Playstation 2 and while it was ok it was the last one I ever enjoyed.. Shadow The Hedgehog's combination of Sonic's gameplay plus guns and vehicles left a sour note for me, Even Sonic The Hedgehog 4 was a huge letdown for us..Old sonic gamers.
Responding to SonicX9, Yes, I've seen the Sonic Forces trailer along with pre-render images and details on it but honestly it just looks like another Shadow The Hedgehog game, The fact that one can make their own character in game also gives me bad memories of the "Sonic Fanbois" that plagued DeviantArt and Youtube for sometime. Mainly, I DON'T hate Sonic but I don't believe he will ever be popular again after that fiasco with Sonic BooM.
As for Sonic Forces, right now I am cautiously optimistic as I am not sure if the game is good or not. The main reason is it done by the same team that made the well regarded Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations which are two of the best 3D Sonic games after both Sonic Adventure 1 and ,2 and some even go as far and say they are both better then the former's which I 100% agree with. But the big make and break for me is the Metacritic scores from both critics/gamers alike. Because one game I was looking forward to earlier this year was Yooka-Laylee, because I was a huge fan of the Banjo-Kazooie series growing up, and thought it was going to be the next Shovel Knight but even better after the mess that was Mighty No. 9 from last year. But after the infamous JonTron scandal.: https://www.polygon.com/2017/3/23/15039 ... -playtonic

I lost all interest in this game because it exposed just how poor quality most Kickstarter games as a whole! So I will wait till reviews come in for Sonic Forces before judging it ok.
