  1. Concepts/Things In Mania You Dislike

    I'll not mention the problems that others have, I'm sure everybody feels that way about those missing elements. But I will complain about some of the level design, particularly in Chemical Plant act 1. I swear there's a speed section where you don't need to press anything for 15 seconds. Not very engaging. And then there's the Sonic CD levels. I hated Stardust speedway and metallic madness in the original, and they're still a mess in Mania. Though I'll praise SS's boss throwback, I love that reference. And MM at least changes things up more in its level design. I'm guessing the levels that were chosen were based on reused assets from their CD/1/2 remakes, as well as their prototype for the pitched 3&K remaster, to save on development resources. It would explain why we got the blue spheres back (I have no problem with those however), and why some levels feel like rehashes with minimal changes to layout. Maybe I shouldn't have psyched myself up by playing 3&K the day before release, lol. I'm confident though that the critical success (too early to call it a commercial one?) has Sega at a meeting with taxman and his team right now saying that they need to make a sequel

    The switch version makes the UI on the home screen extremely unresponsive while the game is running

    Yeah, they've taken payment but it's still not dispatched, even though it says it should have by now.
  5. Wow. Just wow, could you do this for the other platforms too?

  7. Sonic Mania CE delayed in EU?

    Hi, yes, it's such a big email it needs 3 screens. Like others on here it now says Wednesday, but the email alludes to the possibility that they are having trouble with stock from their suppliers. I may be over reacting but wanted to know if others had the same. Still not marked as dispatched either.
  8. So I just recieved a very lengthy email from amazon explaining that the ETA of my has changed to a few days later because they're struggling to source the CE, and can't guarantee I'll get it on Tuesday. As a result they've extended my prime membership. It should be noted that I preordered this way back in 2016. Anybody else got this happen to them?
  9. Tumblr/Twitter Sonic's latest exploits thread

    I believe the hints are in relation to track listing on the album. There is a song called pixel empire, which is 11. And on the deluxe edition, there is a song called Icarus, which is 13... Add them numbers maybe? Or maybe there are other numbers related to these songs...
