Re: ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Movie Sequel in the Works

It does seem like since Mania, they are giving more of what the fans want. Changing Sonic's design was a big gesture and hopefully a wake up call. 1. I hope this focuses less on Earth - Sonic's world has so much more potential, I really don't get the fascination with 'Sonic in the real world' since ...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoilers)

I like the approach Sonic 2 gg and Sonic Advance 3 took. One started underground and the other started in a city. I think even if 'Sonic Maia 2' ended up being just as good as classic Sonic, the complaints that it 'isn't trying something different' would grow. I hope a new Sonic game takes what was ...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

What they could have added: - Another type of bonus stage (I would have liked the pinball bonus stages from Sonic Spinball) to collect rings/lives and maybe have missing characters such as Mighty make a cameo. :shock: I just looked back at this out of retrospective curiosity. Whelp, if they're list...

Re: Sonic 2018

What do people think the Encore mode of Sonic Mania Plus is going to be? Super Hard mode? Possible Time travelling for all zones? Both would be amazing. I'm really hoping for better zone transitions this time around.

What do we want for 'Sonic Mania 2'?

I'm not entirely sure how financially successful Sonic Mania was but I am fairly certain that the sequel is already in the works. My question is where does Sonic go from here without getting too repetitive? Essentially I want a game that builds from Sonic Mania, keeping its core but adding a few ext...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

I managed to access Knuckles portion at the beginning of GHZ act 1 with Sonic by going down and left where the spikes are and jumping down past the spikes. It was weird, the background changes suddenly from overground to underground. I feel like the super emeralds being grey in this game is also gon...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

*Mecha Sonic.

I also notice that the boss has a similarity to Knuckles' Chaotix. I'd also add this boss as a bad point and knowing when your going to land a hit involves a lot of random waiting. It's a shame, because a screenshot of this would have built up a lot of hype over it.

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

Good points: Overall, I’m very impressed with this game. I always found it really frustrating that Sega could have made this game 5, 10, 15 years ago on handheld devices but chose to ignore it. I appreciate games like Sonic Rush, Sonic Rush Adventure and to some extent Sonic Colors (3DS) for being ...

Re: Sonic 2017

I want this to do as badly as the other recent 3D titles so that they can reimagine 3D Sonic from the ground up. Even playing Generations, for me the size scale of the classic levels feel off and so does the momentum. For the modern levels it just feels... hard to enjoy. As for the villains its basi...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

I can see it actually is more similar to Carnival Night Zone's gimmick actually, although I agree some of these zones might be trying to throw in as many references as possible. I really like the four-directional path tubes in Metallic Madness being used for Chemical Plant Zone. I think the most gla...

I'm assuming other folk have noticed that Flying Battery Zone has elements of Death Egg Zone, Stardust Speedway has elements of Marble Garden Zone and Chemical Plant Zone has elements of Quartz Quadrant. ?

I like it. Nice gimmicks and beautiful background. I especially like how the level continues on into act 2. All I'm hoping for now is a solid storyline and decent special stages.

Re: Hardware Mania

Thanks for the good advice guys! I at least managed to get my genesis games working better on Steam. It turned out it had everything to do with how the game was being loaded (either the Simple Launcher or some other weird hub thing they have). The Adventure games are still choppy, so I'll try to twe...

A youtube video from two years ago showing Desert Dazzle zone... a discarded new zone from Christian Whitehead's Sonic CD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbWeIikEi0c Surprised I missed this entirely and just assumed Mirage Saloon was an homage to Dust Hill zone.

Okay so I managed tor reactivate my Steam account from 3 years ago (which already has SA, SA2 and Sonic Generations) and also found my old XBox 360 controller.

Re: Hardware Mania

Thanks for this guys! I think the PC i had before was really old (2011) when I tried out sonic adventure on steam as it was very slow but I do have a newer one so maybe that will be fine. I wasnt sure how good my pc had to be to allow e.g. Sonic generations to run smoothly. ?

Hardware Mania

It used to be so much easier buying games consoles to keep up with Sonic games up and until around Sonic Heroes. I didn't feel bad about losing track of the games because from what I gathered most of the ones after that were even more sub-standard. I've always wanted to play Sonic Generations, but I...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

Upon remembering that the sound effect for the transporters in Studiopolis is borrowed from the sound effect of the transporters in Sonic Spinball (The Machine) it occurred to me: wouldn't a pinball level be great as a special stage? I've just replayed all the classic games and to be honest the only...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

Apparently Christian Whitehead indicated that the levels link together in much the same way that S3&K levels did. This was always something I found appealing about the game, the levels in some ways helped progress the story line. There was something special about seeing the Death Egg launch and cras...

Re: Sonic 4 Episode 2 Not to Come until 2012

Time travel and combo moves are two things I'd anticipated with this game. Kinda sucks that it isn't a 'full' game like the original three. Unless the four zones have four different time lines. That would be sweet. Hopefully by the time they 'introduce' Knuckles for Episode 3 they won't use combo mo...
