Hey everyone, this is Dusk Golem aka AestheticGamer. I have posted on NeoGAF since 2011, and have decided to resign. I have enjoyed posting about horror games here for years, but I no longer wish to support the site and will be leaving for good. I will still be around the internet, I go by AestheticGamer on YouTube, I make games on Steam as Yai Gameworks, and I plan to go by Dusk Golem on other forums. I'll be joining an off-set of the GAF community leaving to try other ventures like ResetEra (Official Twitter for that here: https://twitter.com/reseteraforum ). I hope some of you who read this may consider it, and I plan to try to expose more people to horror games in the years to come. Just not here.

I hope you all are having a good day, and know I always loved the community, and in the end it's the community I'm going to stick with, not the site itself. If you want to follow me, my official Twitter is here: https://twitter.com/AestheticGamer1

reading and looking at video reviews for this sure to be turd - always enjoy that with 3d Sonic, like watching a train crash

this'll probably be like Sonic 4 Episode Metal or the Lost World NiGHTS level. Just an existing level in the main game with slight differences. People expecting an entire campaign should probably keep other Sonic DLC in mind.

There's a description for the DLC in where it states that.

Shadow vs Infinite, who will be edgier?
Ah, didn't see it anywhere since the OP just shows the store icon.

I guess this will explain why Shadow is a bad guy randomly again?
It seems pretty clear that Infinite is controlling the whole rogues gallery this time around.

It's not like Zavok or Chaos are really friends with Eggman and are willing to answer to his beck and call. (That said, any excuse to bring Chaos back is always good. He's too cool to stay irrelevant.)

That's true. I guess it never really crossed my mind.

And I agree. Chaos is too cool to not use here and there in new games.

Well that reason we kind of already know, Sonic Forces takes place in an alternate timeline/dimension than the main series where Eggman won, conquered 99% of the world, and now a resistance has risen up against him. As a result, all the entities and experiments Eggman has tried to rise up through the series are actually on his side, which is why Metal Sonic, Shadow, Chaos, that guy from Lost Worlds, etc., are in Eggman's assembly as he's successfully conquered and they follow his rule. Apparently Sonic was defeated according to a recent stuff, like in this timeline before Sonic became a hero he already met his downfall and lost. But now I guess Sonic's back in the uprising, and the Classic Sonic from
Mania's true ending
seems to be along for the ride too.

It's bound to be fun silly, but curious where they go with this.
Ah, that's true. I have beaten Mania. I didn't think it'd tie into forces though.

I guess Shadow would have never really had a chance of redemption in the events of SA2 if Sonic was never a thing and the Biolizard never tried to hurl the Ark at earth.

I always figured Shadow and Blaze would be perfect alternate characters for the Boost style - Generations basically showed off the possibility with the Shadow Rival battle.

Anyway, I'd be lying if I said the 12 year old in me wasn't a little excited. I'll always be fond of this guy.

OH SHIT

Well I guess we know what the Sonic Twitter was teasing!

This is secretly the funniest thing about Shadow the Hedgehog, and it's a crime that you only usually see the "damn 4th chaos emerald", "find the computer room" and "taking candy from a baby" things
I was playing Shadow the Hedgehog yesterday and honestly the "taking candy from a baby" was what had me rolling. Shadow's taking the good path, Sonic & friends show up and offer to take Shadow to the ARK so they can stop Black Doom. Shadow agrees and hops on... only to immediately fuck everyone over by stealing the Chaos Emerald powering the ship 2 seconds later while saying that quote and grinning like an idiot. That game is filled with ridiculous and far-fetched moments but that just had to take the cake.

Sonic Unleashed had meaty DLC with new levels though.
