    Blue Blood got a reaction from Piko in Sonic 30th predictions   
    Ironically enough, Sonic Colours was exactly this back in 2010. They uploaded the trailer randomly to YouTube one day, and the press release came a little bit later. I think that the first trailer that did the rounds was the Italian one of all things. American fans were having a bit of a crisis over that stray "u" in "colours".
    Colours was announced when S4E1 was only supposed to be a few months away, before it got delayed. SEGA were really positioning S4E1 as the big new game to get Sonic back in the good graces of the fans and critics, whilst Colours was positioned as something much less important and more like it was being churned out for the younger or more causal fanbase. I don't think that SEGA knew their audience at all back then...

    Sticks is one of the very few characters from the series that I absolutely cannot stand. Her entire schtick is to spout random, paranoid babble, and she does so with the most unbearable of voices.  She's not funny and had little else to offer. Boom attempted at times to show her innocent or naive side, but she only ever came across as annoying to me. 
    Crap character, through and through. She's best left in the scrap pile.

    Yeah, I think that this could very well be the case. I don't think the guy is talking completely out of his arse and he's probably saying what his is in fairly good faith. But he's been so unwilling to be publicly forthcoming with any specifics and keeps saying "I'll tell you more later" that I doubt he's got much info of any real value, or is somewhere quite far down the grapevine. There's so much guesswork going on that he can't be particularly well informed. 
    At this point, I've written off everything he's said apart from the broadest strokes. There's so little reason to trust him. He apparently did mention Colours Ultimate by name to other people, which is something. But that's pretty much it now. Even that doesn't really accurately match what he said in the leaks, as Colours is neither obscure nor does Ultimate seem to be part of a new collection.

    It's an unhelpful and unproductive suggestion, bordering on being outright dismissive and totally patronising.
    Harassing SEGA and other people involved with the series is a problem not exclusive to bringing back old characters, not exclusive to fans of these characters and not even exclusive to the Sonic series. Being a fan and harassing people have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Anyone with as much as a modicum of respect and self-restraint will go about supporting their interests in a suitable way. They'll continue creative endeavours and fan works of the characters they like, whilst still fighting the corner for them to eventually return in an official capacity. There's nothing wrong with that. It may always be a fruitless endeavour, but what's the harm in keeping the spirit alive? Don't tell people to give up on something so harmless at worst.
    Your entire argument here can be turned back on to say "Hey you know that thing you liked before? Some other people who like it can't behave themselves, so yeah you should just give up on it. Go draw pictures of it and forget about it." That's a shitty position to take.

    You're making this post in a topic about bringing Sticks back. This point is a meaningless non-sequitor.

    Because their plans take much more into consideration than if the existence of a project was leaked by a dubbing company. Colours Ultimate existence was leaked, that's all we know. They have other Sonic related projects in the works too. A small leak really isn't something that they'll be in any rush to damage control.

    I agree with Tyson wrt what the new game should be but he's been beating that drum for a while now and so have I.

    I'm so glad to hear a bunch of English/UK-based voice actors here, rather than North Americans putting on questionable 'British' accent. They sound terrific.

    If that's the real deal, it's a good look for him. He's a bit big maybe, but you can glean a lot from his character from the design. I like it.

    Blue Blood reacted to JezMM in Sonic Mania Music Loops   
    You can more or less tell by using the official soundtrack release as a guideline, where every track gets at least 2 full loops before ending or fading out.  If it sounds like the song has reached a loop and the progress bar is about to hit the halfway point on the running time, it means there's no second variation.  If you're only about a quarter of the way through when that happens, it means the first loop isn't really done yet - there's about to be a repeated section with some reworking done, as you described for Flying Battery, before the loop of the Mania version is over.
     
    Having said all of that, off the top of my head, I'm fairly sure Green Hill Act 2 is the only song other than Flying Battery Act 2 that goes for this.  Only about 80% sure on that but yeah.
