Re: Everybody Super Sonic failing... (Team Sonic Racing)

I'm reticent to criticize Cream on account I'm not now or every was a little girl. I'm guessing she failed to capture that intended audience, or even any peripheral audience aside from those unsavory enough to put even Sega off their lunch. I get the impression Cream was solely created to fill the ...

Re: Everybody Super Sonic failing... (Team Sonic Racing)

I am surprised they didn't bring back Cream. I am not a fan of her, but it would have been a nod to Heroes. And she could have worked well with a team of Chao. Cream and Amy were brilliant in Sonic Battle. And then in Sonic Advance 3, they formed Team Jubilee and became the girl Sonic & Tails. But I...

Famitsu have confirmed that Rouge and Omega will be present, as well as the Bomb, Cube and Eagle Wisps. No signs of the drill Wisp who is the only one to have appeared in every single game, but it's still early.

Re: Sonic Mania Adventures

To be fair, this has been made on shoe string budget.

They are also all working remotely and again...

The transformed gimmick was a neat idea, but the game usually controlled when you could change which was a waste of potential. The tracks barely had...

Re: Everybody Super Sonic failing... (Team Sonic Racing)

The description says it will have a story mode. I liked it better when these racing games didn't have a story, that way I could write them off as not being part of the overall story line, as the idea of Sonic in a car still bugs me.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Probably Sonic Clackers. Neo on Sonic Retro worked that one out. It makes perfect sense given how Sonic & Tails behave in the game. Plus, L & R are interchangeable in Japanese. I think there's a couple of Playstation prototype controllers that have a SERECT button.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

I imagine Windii probably left it as Pox to keep more faithfully to the text, which is something translators often do.

It's like how everyone calls the Chaotix prototype "Sonic Crackers" because that's how it is mis-romanized on the title screen.

Also, the translation by sth2k didn't mention that this is Eggmanland. Is this the first occurrence of that name? The earliest one I have is SA1. It first popped up in the Sonic Ova (which Sonic Team supervised), so Sonic Labyrinth must predate it. Perhaps Eggmanland was part of the Sonic series bi...

Episode 2 is out and it's just as brilliant as the first one. There's a couple of Mania Plus spoilers at the end (apparently). I don't want the game spoiled so I skipped the credits.

Re: Sonic Mania Plus [Spoiler free thread]

I'm glad they seem to be making special routes for Ray and Mighty. Multiple characters have failed in virtually every game since Sonic 3 &K, because they either just act as skins or they have their own routes which are too short. They certainly seem to providing a lot of content for a $5 upgrade, so...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Well, I always lumped the Chaos Emeralds and all those floating platforms as magic. But they probably should be more accurately be classed as other phenomena (as you have).
