  1. Could someone that has been watching the Forces leaks explain in objective terms how's the level design for the most part?

    From what I'm reading, the officially revealed levels don't represent the rest of the game in terms of linearity. Some say it's good and some say it's still bad, that is why I want objective terms.

      Some are ok actually, is a zig zag of quality.

      I can't say more without spoiling.

      they're exactly as bad as what we've already seen.

  2. I'm seriously worried about the future of Catalonia and the people living there: the regional government has been essentially taken over by radical, borderline supremacist organizations.

      The radicals of the world seem to be popping out of the woodworks everywhere.

  3. I've never been too much into Time Attacking Sonic games, but something I really, really like is Ring Attacking. Ever since I was little, I find a lot of satisfaction in not missing a single Ring and a lot of frustration in losing them upon taking damage -especially if I had above 200!-. Ring Attacking also encourages exploring as much of the levels as possible, instead of just rushing straight to the goal as you'll be doing most of the time. Sonic Mania is no exception, of course, so here I am uploading my first two challenges: The original Green Hill Zone Act 1 had 225 Rings in it, as any Sonic fan should know; its updated version in Sonic Mania has a whopping 596... not counting the extra 160 obtainable via Special Stage Rings and a goal post-triggered monitor at the end! This is a clear sign of how much the level has been expanded! Of course, only Knuckles has access to all these Rings, since he's got an exclusive section at the beginning with a lot of Rings there. Ah, the unique first act of Mirage Saloon Zone where you fly on the Tornado and hop on a moving train driven by Eggman! There is only a single, straightforward path through this level, much unlike in every other, but Ring Atacking it still poses a challenge due to autoscrolling in the Tornado section and weirdly placed Rings in the train section which require a Lightning Shield to be collected. BTW, you'll also see my favourite way of playing on the Tornado: holding down a Spin Dash to combo almost every enemy and earn massive score! Any of you like Ring Attacking too? Feel free to share your experiences and achievements here!
  4. Sonic Forces PS4 Trophies to be Leaked

    I don't see any reason here to think that Eggman won't be the final boss: see, the final Infinite-related achievement reads "Defeat Infinite", but the Eggman achievement doesn't say anything about defeating Eggman! It is certainly strange that Metal Sonic, Shadow and Chaos don't get an achievement for themselves, though... I'm especially intrigued by those EX and Secret Stages, and the different types of Challenges! It gives good hopes for the length of the game! By the way, don't you find it funny that, after NSMB2 introduced Moon Coins as a variant of Star Coins and Super Mario Odyssey will introduce Power Moons as a substitute for Power Stars... Sonic Forces will be introducing Silver Moon Rings alonside the Red Star Rings! Interesting Stars -> Moons pattern here...
  5. Do you think SEGA's marketing on Sonic Forces is going to kick into overdrive starting from now? Just like how we got a lot of Mania stuff in July and August...

      It better, we're literally half a month away now.

      And with the PSN trophies, it seems we'll getting more juicy stuff soon.

      I'd hope so. We seem to be getting new info every Tuesday so I feel that's a good start.

  6. OK, I now believe that the police is definitely using excessive force in certain situations. But not all's bad, some of them are telling inconsiderate parents to take their children out of of the hot points.

  7. The current shaky period in Spanish politics has rached a new low. After years of disagreements and inaction, one of the autonomous regions' legislative chamber and government have organized an illegal independence referendum.

    Now the population is split on how far police forces should go to avoid the voting. It's clear the referendum will be completely invalid in the end because half of the regions' population doesn't recognize it as legitimate, but the peolple who just want to go and vote don't deserve, IMO, to be treated with excessive force.

    What the sensible population wants is politicians to stop yelling at each other and cooperate. I really don't want this to cause civil confrontations, we already got terrorist-aligned rebel groups in the Basque Country, such things are simply out of place in a present-day constitutional democracy.

  8. Sonic Forces sponsored by Hooters...

    Assuming this sponsor is Japan-exclusive, it isn't so strange if we consider the originally planned personality for Sonic...
  9. I don't care too much about the English voices since I'm going to set them to Spanish. Ever since Generations, the Spanish voice actors have done a really good job, IMO.
  10. Emergency Communication From The Resistance Forces

    I understand that Knuckles as we know him might not make for a good leader... But where's the fun in a perfectly competent leader? I see this as a perfect opportunity for giving Knux a long-awaited meaty, near-protagonist role while still playing him for laughs sometimes.
  11. Judging from all the Sonic Forces themed merchandise we're getting, I guess we now have a clear idea of the titular forces' core integrants:

    Sonic, Avatar, Classic Sonic, Tails and Knuckles

    vs

    Eggman, Infinite, Metal Sonic, Shadow, Chaos and Zavok

    Then, each force has got its supports and allies -Amy, Silver, Chaotix / Eggman's robots-

    Seems nice enough! The title will be more fitting than I initially thought...

  12. As picky as Sonic community members tend to be, it baffles me a little how almost nobody cares to use the proper names for the elemental shields: Flame, Thunder and Aqua.

    1. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      FIRE

      LIGHTNING

      BUBBLE

      Jump Dash, Double Jump and Bounce, got it.

    5. Blue Blood

      You're going by Generations names for them. S3 (US) calls them Flame, Lightning and Water, whilst Mania calls them Fire, Lightning and Bubble (and Blue for the basic one).

      >mfw I see casuals calling Voltaic Bulwarks "Thunder Shields"

      Why do people insist on calling it a fire shield when it is so clearly a magmatic indemnifier?

    10. A 3 KINGS Heavy engine

      A 3 KINGS Heavy engine

      You're right. It's a haduoken shield.

    11. Penny

      Penny

      if you don't call them fire, lightning, and water (bubble works too) shields, idk what you're doing with your life

    12. JezMM

      JezMM

      Tbh Thunder is a stupid-ass name anyway considering Thunder is the noise that lightning makes, not the electric discharge itself

    13. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      Red White and Blue shields

    14. Ajavalo

      Ajavalo

      Wait, so Sonic Mania calls them Fire, Lightning and Bubble? Well, those seem to be the most used denominations, I guess it's fine. I know that Flame, Thunder and Aqua are the official original names and have been re-established in games since Generations.

    15. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Generations also tells us that the Insta-sheild is called the "Two-spin", and literally nobody calls it that.

  13. Have they moved Mania PC's release time back to 5PM BST? The countdown seems to show one less hour than just before.

  14. LakeFeperd has just released a new DX version of ATS which adds the Drop Dash, among other things!:

      this is great news!

      Cool, the drop dash is my favorite iteration on classic sonics moveset so far so having it here is great.

    3. Depression Kong

      The Drop Dash would be a fantastic addition if the execution wasn't so wrong.

      You have to hold the button in order to do it hear, rather than just tapping it.

    4. MegasonicZX

      @Depression KongIt actually works pretty well in action contrary to how awkward it sounds and I never find myself accidently doing it when I don't want to in sonic mania. It also helps that you have to hold it until you touch the ground instead of it just staying proc'd from a single second hold.                                            

  15. I'm not sure what to think about the controls: some who have played the demos (such as Ruki) say that the game plays and feels great, but then there are guys like that one air boosting into bottomless pits. I actually think the problem there was about the player trying to "gotta go fast" like in the speed-oriented first half despite the second half not being speed-oriented at all.
