Take a look at this shit guys,
I honestly don't, I don't want to hear any more excessively negative opinions, and here's why.
As a Sonic fan, I've had it up to here with the extreme amount of garbage people have given Sonic Boom. When the series was first announced, most absolutely hated to see Sonic and his friends had changed, even though they knew nothing about the game or TV series. Later on through the summertime and such, as more trailers and information was released, most fans started to catch on and realize that it needed a chance, and it might turn out to be something better than what we originally thought, and it's been this way! Sonic Boom has been very much so thrived and praised for the most part.. until now
Apparently, yesterday a YouTuber got a hold of Rise of Lyric early, and thought it was a good idea to upload a co-op let's play of it two days before the game's release. It didn't get very far. Only 3 parts in, Sega of America discovered the videos, and they were removed. The YouTuber also had another Rise of Lyric video uploaded that contained a few of the game's cutscenes, this is the one video that still remains for the public.
Before the videos were taken down, I myself got to watch bits and peices of them, (not entirely, for I didn't want to spoil myself), and I come to find that almost every comment down below was either negative, or just flat out ignorant, complaint after complaint about how horrible Rise of Lyric is going to do on it's release, and it's headed straight down the drain. Now, I can't blame some people for saying that, because Sonic Boom in general has had a pretty rough start.. but in time it has gotten better! Fans began to see the positives, and suddenly when this leak video pops up, all hope goes down hill? I know Boom has it's pros and cons, but c'mon, some people are nitpicking so horrendously to the point where it makes them look like they've got nothing better to do with their lives.
God damn, the game isn't even out yet and people are judging it so! I understand that everyone has their own opinions, but how in the world can you have an opinion 24 hours before release? 24 hours after, sure!.. but before? What the hell everyone’s issue?.. If you haven’t yet understood, this is not the SEGA Sonic, and this is only a spin-off.. All you butt-hurt, so called “seasoned Sonic fans” say that this game is garbage just because it’s different.. Honestly, if your boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, decided to cut their hair, or do something with it, would you call them garbage just because a feature is different? Think about it. BigRedButton and Sanzaru Games are very professional game development companies, and anyone’s first intention is if they’re going to make something, they’re gonna make it worth while. Why make a game with a goal to make it horrible in the end? Sonic 2006 was glitchy and messy because it was RUSHED. The ONLY real reason it didn't live up to it’s intentions. If SEGA and the developers had more time, I’m sure it would have turned out to be the Sonic Adventure 3 we truly wanted. Now, it’s kind of a stretch, but it’s true if you think about it. This fan-base is really bipolar, the fans want something new and different, they get something new, then yet they turn around and start complaining about how bad it will be.
I’m not a recent Sonic fan, nor a seasoned one. Hate me if you will, but I’m giving Sonic Boom a chance.
I still plan on purchasing BOTH Sonic Boom games tomorrow morning, and to enjoy them myself.
