  1. "See me, Sonic, and my new ride, the Sonic Spinball, at Alton Towers resort!"

    1. Ferno


      I still think that if Sega really wanted to, that we could've had a "Griffith-like" Sonic for another decade, as Roger emulated Griffith's sound pretty well in that clip as well as in parts of Free Riders before he started developing his own sound in Colors and Generations

      The clip in question is at 4:23.

      I honestly don't think that he sounds even slightly Griffith-like here, unless you mean putting inflections on seemingly random syllables that almost makes him sound a little drunk. It sounds like Smith might be trying to imitate that here, and sounds worse for it. Griffith just did not do a good Sonic. I'm glad that Smith is nothing like him.

  2. Anyone got that Retro Gamer Sonic 30th magazine? Just wondering if it's worth buying.

      DIdn't know there was one. Might have to check out the magazine section next time I'm at the local bookstore.

  3. If anyone fancies it, Death Stranding is £4 in Tesco.

  4. First Covid jab done (Moderna). Multiple symptoms within 10 minutes but most lasted half an hour. Stomach cramps and muscle pains ongoing, and yet some people have none.

    "Strange, isn't it?"

      I got my Pfizer jab yesterday and I feel completely normal. Quite strange, indeed. The positive thing here Is that a lot of people are getting their vaccine so we can beat the virus.

    2. Blue Blood

      I'm getting mine first thing in the morning. It'll be Pfizer or Moderna (hoping for the latter, not that it really matters).

      Got Pfizer 3 weeks ago.

      Arm was quite swollen within the first 24 hours but eased off over the next 2 days. 

    4. T-Min


      The first Pfizer shot didn't give me any side effects besides a sore arm. The second shot knocked me down for a couple of days.

      Hope you feel better soon.

  5. So with the press release also revealing the name Sonic Rangers before being omitted for being "an old version", from that could we say the game was delayed to next year and that the press release was for this year after the game was to be teased at a cancelled event last year? 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      No. We have no idea how old the previous press release was. The trailer dates back as far as June last year because such materials are made very far in advance, but the press release was likely written up much more recently.

      There's no actual indication that SEGA had ever planned a reveal last year. I think it was probably supposed to launch in 2021 originally too, but SEGA quite quickly delayed a ton of projects when the pandemic brought the world to a halt.

      the only good thing to come from this... zippo is a hack CONFIRMED

  7. 1 minute intro, trailers for most Sonic games have been around the 2 minute mark so Colours Ultimate, Collection, new 2D game at 6 minutes, 5 minutes for events/tie ins and the last 30 or so seconds for CGI teaser of main game. 

  8. Need my boy Sonic on PS5

  9. Really looking forward to tomorrow and luckily have the day off work! 

  10. Dimension Heist is a banger

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's a great track. Mania so easily has the most enjoyable Special Stages in the entire series. 

  11. Anyone good with insurance fraud? Someone has accused me of reversing in to them in a city I've never visited. Called my insurance and told them it wasnt me. Not sure what will happen next.

  12. I just want a new Sonic song to have on repeat until the game releases. 

    1. JezMM


      This original special stage track from a Sonic Mania mod is pretty good if you wanna make-believe:


  13. Gotta remaster those Wisps

  14. Just started Crash 4 and OMG so good!

  15. Crash N.Sane Trilogy done (Crash 2 was a pain). On to Crash 4!


  16. Yuji Naka's fall from grace is disheartening. 

    1. Azure Blue Tori

      Azure Blue Tori

      Yeah. It's a tale as old as time, yet I'm not feeling the schadenfreude that I did with Keiji Inafune or Yoshio Sakamoto. I just hope nothing comes out of the post-mortem development analysis that would make me dislike Naka, because right now, he merely seems misguided.

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Naka was always mixed in terms of his work so it wasn't quite fall from grace but more levelled out if you look into his backstory a bit more. His hits that he was involved with are well known and was a good programmer even though the last time that he worked on a game at that level was NiGHTS (technically Christmas NiGHTS) however Balan was his first more hands on role since Chu Chu Rocket.

      He was personally involved with clunkers such as Super Thunder Blade and F-16 Fighting Falcon (aka let's put a SG-1000/SC-3000 game on the Master System and have a fancy title screen). Plus a lot of stuff that he was credited in, he was barely involved with and if he was involved it was more or less the person in between the higher ups and the production staff. Now that would be interesting to know but we'll doubt that we would get to know anyone who experienced Naka as a producer...

      I saw it coming sadly.

      He always seemed to be ruled with a mindset of hubris. And given how he doesn't seem the best fit to run a company or head a project, I never had high hopes for Balan.

    4. BadBehavior


      Naka: But I jumped ship from Sonic 06, I thought I stopped my downfall?

    5. Piko


      You’re saying that like Balan is his first post-SEGA hiccup. Although to be fair, none of them are complete train wrecks.

  17. Saw this on my Twitter feed. Rumours about Sonic from a once reliable source? Read away

    1. OnerousRiot


      Funny you bring it up, but the source is a person who's a member of this very forum AND ResetEra both.

      So you might know of him somehow.

      At least I do.

    2. Iko


      I'm not sure if this is credible or not, I don't know really, but please, tell me that the 2D game is a "Sonic Advance 4" kind of game and the full original Advance cast is playable along with Blaze and maybe someone else. If that is true, I would be more hyped for that game than for the 3D one.

      But it might be all fake so I prefer to not hype at all for now.

    3. PC the Hedgehog

      Not doing more with classic Sonic would be a mistake of monumental proportions. Sure, the fans are putting out amazing stuff to fill the void, but why have Sonic fans enjoy new classic games for free when you can get them to make OFFICIAL games for you for lots of easy money? BAFFLINGLY easy money.

      If Sega wants fans to cast aside their love for classic Sonic, then they're going to have to work some miracles with modern Sonic to get it even close to that level of quality.

    4. Milo


      eh, that talk about the olympics has me prone to call this out as fake. (and given what that reporting said about dimps possibly being brought back, holy shit do i hope it is just BS. that's just as bad if not worse than the genesis sonic stuff.)

      when sega opts for the rights to make olympic games, that stuff is usually settled well in advance before the actual date. sega's deal with the IOC to make games for the tokyo 2020 event was inked all the way back in 2016. the original deal sega made for the 2008 games were settled near the end of 2005.

      that's not to say agreements reached closer to the release date aren't a thing. sega got the rights for the 2010 games in early 2009. ubisoft announced their 2018 winter olympics expansion for steep at e3 2017. but i'd note the quick 2010 greenlight made sense due to the massive success of the 2008 games; and a game expansion =/= an entire game (or set of games).

      the muted reception/launch of both of sega's tokyo 2020 games and the games being undercut by the pandemic pushing back the actual events (to the point of possible cancellation) has me skeptical of sega really striving for getting the 2022 license. the M&S series had enough diminishing returns with 2014 and 2016 games that sega sat 2018 out to begin with.

      that and if we really get into the nitty gritty of sega's development studios, sonic team has only been a label for a long time now. sonic team hasn't been an standalone department within sega since the 2009 restructure.

    5. Milo


      @PC the Hedgehog honestly, that kinda baffles me too. it's like if that's how you really feel about that part of the franchise; then things should had gone down a very different path instead of what we have now. mania and everything associated with it shouldn't exist based on that mentality.

      e: i've been admittedly going back and forth over that "news" for a while with my edits, my final takeaway on that point is this. i think classic sonic is looking likely to shelved regardless if this rumor is true or not. it's just this rumor's supposed reasoning for it happening doesn't add up at all; based on how sega themselves have handled the game's production and release.

  18. Sonichu Prime > Sonic Prime 

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      There should be an episode where they visit the sonichuniverse

  19. SEGA did say they were gonna sort themselves out, and this will be the first Sonic game since that was said (Forces and TSR were already in development). I... don't know what to expect. 

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Sega has promised some variant of "the next Sonic game will go back to the franchise's roots" over and over since the mid-00s.

      Them saying "The next game will be good, we really mean it this time" is a time-honored tradition at this point.

    2. Stasis


      Just in general really, not so much with just Sonic. We're now getting games to IP's they've not touched in years, English dubs for Judgment and Yakuza Like a Dragon, the Mega Drive mini was actually decent, so I'm being optimistic that they want to get Sonic back on track. 

  20. Balan Wonderworld had a very nice opening cinematic, and then the game started.

    PS4 version and everything is just... bad. This really feels like an unpolished indie game. This needs delaying big time.

  21. Anyone got an Oculus Quest 2? Not sure which version to get - 64GB or 256GB? 

  22. The next Sonic game needs a trailer like Unleashed. 

    1. Diogenes


      leaked before it's ready?

    2. Dejimon11


      Uploaded by hellfire comms and then the channel gets shut down. History repeats. 

    3. Teoskaven


      So like, just a hand that transforms into something?

  23. I wonder what the something special is on Sega Europe's stream later today?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Was it not this, or wouldn't it be just this?



      Like, what is the specific time they air their livestreams? 

    2. PickleBrows


      A hands-on with Sonic Puyo Puyo definitely seems like a good bet now. I'd say it's either that or some nify merch that'll then go up on the SEGA Shop.

      If the thing was definitely going to be Sonic-related, which it could well not be, the absolute most they'd announce here is some sort of PC port. From memory I think Lost World's PC port  announcement and release was relatively understated? 


  24. You thought you could trick me with that fake  ̶e̶m̶e̶r̶a̶l̶d̶ wedding, didn’t you?!

    1. Jango


      Sooo, how did you know it was fake?

    2. Jango


      Because you just logged from the same device with a different profile, Levi-boy!

    3. Stasis


      *begins blasting music*

    4. Jango



  25. Worst game for PS5 stream goes to that dinosaur school thing that looks like a 2008 Flash animation.

    1. QuantumEdge


      Looks worryingly pretentious too.
