I was just about to ask if anything new was going on with Bubsy!
You know, it doesn't really look that bad.
From the first moment I saw this it looked kinda fun, so I'm looking forward to it. I'm glad we finally know the exact release date.

I mean let's be fair. Most of Bubsy's terrible reputation came from the infamous 3D game. His previous two games were considered mediocre at best, though nowadays people (generally the ones who had owned the games as kids) say the first game is pretty average, if clumsy in its execution. Out of all his games, it probably functioned the best.
This new game looks okay, though it reminds a lot of the Gianna Sisters games in style. Also, Bubsy sounds like Numbuh 2, which is almost hilariously fitting.
So the new Bubsy game has finally come out and... ho boy.
I've only tried playing the tutorial and the first level, but I can already see so many problems with this. To wit:
In general, the game feels like a worse version of Giana Sisters, which I wasn't that impressed by to begin with.
So much for Bubsy's grand return, eh?

I'd heard Giana Sisters was pretty good, especially since they originally started as a blatant Mario clone.
Poor Bubsy. :( It is weird that they'd map the glide button to something different since in the originals it was a key part of how you got around (cause Bubsy was made of tissue paper if you didn't glide you could die from falling damage). A lives system doesn't bother me too much unless it's really easy to lose them like in the original Bubsy, which seems to be the case here too.

Anyone else have/played the game? General reaction seems to be So Okay, It's Average.
Bubsy can consider this a win for him if this is being compared to Sonic Forces.
Isn't Sonic Forces highly polarizing, especially compared to Mania?
From what's been leaked about Forces, yes. I haven't exactly heard high praise for any singular thing about Forces after it was leaked.

I've heard lots of praise for Forces. People saying it's about as good as Colours/Colors. Making it a very good game.
That's interesting. I've heard a lot of scorn for the Infinite fight, the final boss just being repeat of Colors, really short levels, and maybe I just frequent a place that really does not like Fist Bump as a song.
I've heard mixed things about Forces, especially the story, but nothing about Bubsy except 'the game just came out and it's really short.'
The reviews are giving Bubsy 4/10. It'll be swept under the rug next to Sonic Forces and Super Mario Odyssey anyway.
Finished the game!! 'Twas dull. Disappointed at the review scores
The collector's edition is selling for $12.99 on Amazon right now.
RIP Bubsy, I guess :(
How would you hold a funeral for a zombie?
What makes it ironically fitting is that in-universe, the suggestion is Bubsy;s an exhausted reality star. He constantly makes jabs at his audience, says a few times "he didn't write the script", and there's the occasional joke he's in need of money to get by. He makes a decent woobie, so if a game went full on deconstructive parody and played up that he has to work in these derivative platformers, then make in-between segments something else entirely, it'd make some players warm up to him I think.
Turns out all the Bubsy 3D quotes on the cover were real. Even PSExtreme's.
As it turns out, this cat's not quite gotten through his nine lives yet.
If they have Arnold and Virgil from the pilot I wonder if they'll have Oblivia and Alley Cassandra. (Arnold was in the bonus stages of Bubsy II, too.)
It's a reskinned Bit.Trip Runner by the Runner devs.
Fellas we might actually have a good Bubsy game now.
After so many duds, I have little faith.
I didn't think Bubsy was awful with the first two Megadrive games. The biggest complaint was the first game's one hit KO setup (which works completely against the frenetic gameplay and the many, many, many ways you can get hurt) which Bubsy 2 fixed but utilised much more haphazardness level design. If you could port Bubsy 2's three hit system into it, the first game would arguably be way more fun.
Even his quotes weren't unbearable, he had basic snark worked down in them. Though the later titles exacerbated the cheesiness and gave him more grating voice actors. Shame Rob Paulsen wants nothing to do with him anymore.
