Sonic Generations bosses trailer shows some of the jerks you’ll be jumping on

The screens and videos we’ve been seeing for Sonic Generations put us on a rollercoaster of emotions. First we felt excited about the return of fat, 16-bit Sonic. Then we felt cautiously excited for stages based on Sonic Adventures. After that we were concerned at the seeing Shadow the Hedgehog appear. Following that was mild pleasure to see screens of a PC version, which was immediately followed by outright dread at seeing Silver the Hedgehog in the game. It’s getting to be too much for our emotions. Today’s new trailer featuring many of the bosses you’ll be fighting in the game has us moving back to into the positive side of the emotional spectrum.

In the trailer we spotted Sonic Adventure Perfect Chaos, Silver, Shadow, tons of Eggman, and our personal favorite, Sonic CD’s Metal Sonic. As fun as it was though, most of that footage looked like cutscenes instead of gameplay, which makes us worried the video spoiled several cool moments from the actual game. Also, who’s that shadowy enemy at the end and can the combined furry forces of two Sonics and two Tails defeat it? We’re betting yes, otherwise there wouldn’t be any more sequels.

    Would've been far more excited to see the old ball-swinging Robotnik boss from Green Hill and Knuckles as an adversary rather than Silver.

    metal sonic? count me back in the line of people buying this game... seeing shadow made me skeptical and when i read the word silver i flat out decided not to buy it. crap game characters need to stay in crap games...

    Now that I know the extra characters are all boss battles, I'm stoked. Can't wait to beat the sh*t out of Silver. The Perfect Chaos battle reminded me a lot of the Sonic X series too, that looks good. As long as there is a ton of Robotnik getting his ass handed to him, I'll be happy. He will always be Sonic's REAL enemy. Here's a question I need answering: Why did they change Robotnik's name to Eggman?

    they switch it back and forth between Eggman, Dr. Eggman, Dr. Robotnik, and (my personal favorite from the comic books/older cartoon series) Dr. Robuttnik. :D

    The real question is, who cares? It's been over a decade since they changed to Eggman, and it's not like Robotnik is much better. It's a stupid cartoon name for kiddies. It's not the writ of Shakespeare. Just let it go already. And the reason is, because that was his name in Japan from the very first game until the present day, technically making it his correct name.

    Every time I see cute tubby old Sonic next to the cool, edgy, human female kissing Sonic.....I die a little inside.
