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

No, 06 had ring portals in the towns that took you to the loading screen and dumped you into the action stage in a completely different part of the world. Using something like missile doors to gate progress is a given for any Metroidvania.

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

Hell, I'd be up for a full-blown Metroidvania style game We are 20 years overdue for this. No need for a hub, though. That'd just be SA1 (or Sonic 06 more specifically, which literally used ring gates for zone entry) with a Metroid progression system. Just make one uninterrupted world, like Metroid...

Higher-res versions now available: https://twitter.com/sonic_hedgehog/status/1328776187049459713 It would've been great if Sonic games had continued to have ongoing storytelling, whether they'd picked up where SA1 left off or continued the new thread SA2 started, or both at once. But whoever was int...

Re: Pop: Super Tails and Super Silver

The only games with Super Tails are S3&K and Sonic Mania. The way the cutscene in Heroes portrays it, it looks to me like only Sonic transforms and he just shares some of his power with the other two.

Am I the only one still jaded enough to refuse to see this on principal? I mean, it even turned out to be a popular movie! We're supposed to be contrarian, guys. Damn sellouts.

(The sequels will probably focus more on the Sonic worlds, so they might interest me a bit more)

It's nice to see that they remember these. Sonic 3 was one of the most common, though. If they were releasing some of the rarer ones, I might be interested.

Re: Where will you be if you can't find you?

It's not as stimulating as it used to be, but I kind of like it this way. It's more peaceful. Guess we've gotten soft in our old age. It was a great ride, though. The experience really helped shape me, for better and for worse.

Where do you see 柱? Could you circle it? As for the Emeralds generating their own power, I'm not entirely sure about that. How can they have unlimited power, as Tails tells us, if they don't generate it? Do you think they're being recharged in the Special Stage? Earlier I proposed that they literall...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Reading that again, it occurred to me that the Dark Ring could be the Chaos Ring Eggman witnessed being minted, only this one was corrupted by him somehow. If there are seven Emeralds, then it's likely there are seven CRs, too. This relies or on whether the manual is referring to a single or multip...

Ah, a third translation! Thanks! When it talks about the Master Emerald being moved to the Floating Island by the gods, this seems to be a reference to the backstory presented in Sonic 3. So the Special Ring was supposed to lead to the original location of the Master Emerald, because the ring itself...

S3K theory is a nope.jpg. Looks like the manual clearly states "7 Chaos Emeralds" and the "Pillar" is already underground. Yeah, it would also color the opening scene of Sonic 3 a little oddly. As we understand it now, Knuckles thought he was stealing his emeralds back from Sonic, after which he re...

Shou told me in passing that he was "under extreme scrutiny by Sega for having revealed it," but that may only have been half the story. Maybe it's both.

Re: Brothers from another motherboard

Last I heard, Sega explicitly forbade Shoutime from releasing the ROM. This expo is a nice concession, but if they're going to give us anything further they might as well start by allowing an unofficial release. Also, there was a third brother! It's totally Solar Sonic, Polar Sonic, and Electra Sonic!

Was anyone else bothered by how jazzed Sonic looked at the idea of fighting a super Metal Sonic ? Classic Sonic was a glutton for adventure, but dealing with Eggman always seemed like more of a chore for him, and a threat he took seriously. He's not...well, Goku. This is more like something Pontac's...
