Hard to tell, but looks great!

Biggest take away is... that my OLED is the best damn purchase I've ever made. shudders

Frontiers has the margin of being as good it can be. That's how it works.

but in all seriousness though.. I can't expect to Sonic Team to nail an Open World game on their first try, especially when all they had done in the past decade was very small in scope, and still, they stumbled on basics.

Sorry for the double post, but we've got a new episode of Tailstube (& Knuckles)! It turns out this YouTube series is CANON Canon, because it actually leads into Frontiers!


...Huh. I just realized, the last time the Master Emerald was actually in a Sonic game was in 2008, in Sonic Chronicles, and that game isn't even canon anymore! I look forward to hopefully seeing it in Frontiers!

What have they done to Knuckles’ voice?! I hope this isn’t how he sounds in Frontiers… I wish he would stop getting all these major VA changes. =/ It’d be one thing if they at least sounded similar, but his movie voice was already so drastically different from his game voice, and now this voice also sounds way different from how he typically sounds in the games. If it is the same VA from Team Sonic Racing, the direction sounds entirely different…

one thing I have to complain about with the level design is the lack of evolution since Sonic Adventure. or rather the slow pace of it. since SA1, a lot of the 3D levels kinda play the same, with the biggest change coming in with Colors.

I would like for the levels to be "wider" with some more explore-y bits. the speed running style track can stay, but widen the world to allow for more platforming. hell, we're seeing that in the open world parts of Frontiers. they just need to find a way to fuse the two or offer variety.

Very glowing preview.

Sounds like the moment-to-moment gameplay is great but I honestly still wonder about the overall grandeur of it. Like are we going to have big SA/SA2 moments?

Feels like I'm looking for things to doubt but I'm just too curious about this.

I think I've mentioned in this thread that I'm not really a Sonic fan and haven't had any prior interest in these games, but Frontiers looks legitimately really fun. And the previews I've seen have all been practically glowing

Probably not going to get it day 1 what with everything else releasing around that time, but I'm definitely keeping an eye on this

So I talked to a friend on the Sonic Frontiers discord server to mangaed to talk to a playtester who playtested the game last year and they had some story and gameplay elements to talk about.
"Starfall heavily presented as an illusion
Sage is working to get eggman out dialogue about calculations
Sage IS some sort of eggman entity
Tails does mention the events of Sonic Forces he appears to lament himself not being strong enough. Grain of salt infinite was mentioned by tails forces is canon
Super sonic controls similar to 06, less scripted more movement control, dedicated animation for losing super form.
Combat appears to be very free judging by impressions no scripted button mashing thats only after a certain part even the super sonic boost into the titan is controlled by the player. Whale on the titans head *infintes theme was placeholder however judging by the events its implied he is in at least.
phantom ruby appears to be sentient it seems like thats who Infinite was talking to NOT eggman
all * are speculation based on sources interaction with the game.
Super sonic theme goes hard each titan has a dedicated theme from what I know the first titans theme is lyrical I dont know the lyrics (didnt ask about the others)

Sega PR head said that there are plans to market music and he don't know dates because of all the projects in place and its a lot to remember he just knows that there are plans he later backtracked and went into PR mode"
