Honestly, established names like Metal Sonic, Metal Knuckles, Tails Doll should've been separate characters. I like the idea of picking Metal Sonic's head and torso and giving him an engine skirt, but whole characters should've been their own characters I guess.
You know... Looking at Superstars' Green Hill Zone... I... actually kinda dig it???? Would it be too much to ask for a Sonic remake like that?
I'm sure this is the only reason. Commitment to some degree of "Metal parity" between all of the characters. I just think it's a shame to see him pushed aside at the first real chance at a come back since 1997, in favour of a much more vanilla Metal Tails. They brought back Metal Knuckles, but not Tails Doll.
Man, I'm hyped for Forza Motorsport! I know it will be more "hardcore" than the Horizon games, but I like what I'm seeing so far. It helps that they seem to be releasing new content for free every month!
