Okay, call me crazy, but I swear that this game might have some of that "potential" that we keep tossing around. Let me ignore the werewolf thing for a second, I'll get back to this in a minute.
As far as I can tell, nobody's posted this *here* yet, and maybe I'm just crazy for noticing it, so lemme be the first. Look at this
Then, in a new tab/window, look at this
. It's hard to make out, but yeah, that is
, like, the same damned town in the background. I actually approve of this hi-res-what-we-already-have business. It makes it much harder for Sonic Team to fuck it up, really. It also satisfies everybody bitching for Sonic Team to include throwbacks to prior fans.
Aforementioned minute having passed, obligatory wtfs abound. I imagine it might be like how in S'06, Sonic was f..f..fast -- okay, I couldn't say that with a straight face -- and Shadow was slower but stronger. Same concept, only in that Rivals / Rivals 2 / Rush / Rush Adventure 2.5D that we love so much (?). Not bad at all, if, again, this was in the hands of another developer.
Long story short, we're all jsut going to wait and see how it turns out anyway. I have high hopes for all of the 2.5D games, though, since they've generally been better than the 3D garbage as of late. Everything I've just said is what the whole of the site was thinking anyway. >_>
