  1. Anyone else at this stage actually decided what their game of 2017 is? 

    Mario and Zelda are so good, but Mania is comfortably taking the third spot. 

    First time in years I’ve placed a Sonic game on this list!

    1. JezMM


      It's a real toughie, but BotW will probably be the one for me.  I seriously loved Odyssey, Mania and A Hat in Time, but BotW was just like, I was there man.  That game felt like it was just my life for a few weeks.  Even when it became formulaic in the late hours, I was still entranced by it.

    2. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Odyssey, with BOTW taking a very close second place, for me.

    3. TheOcelot


      Horizon Zero Dawn.

    4. Zaysho


      Right now BotW is that game, but that may change when I get around to playing Odyssey and Xenoblade 2 around the holiday.

    5. Chili Dawg

      Odyssey just been hittin all the right notes for me...  Tho I still have a fair bit of BOTW to tackle so that one could come up from behind and steal the title.

    6. Cobalt_Bolt


      I would have to say it is a tie between Project CARS 2 and NeiR Automata for me as right from the start I had a solid game from both sets of developers with very few (if any) issues.

  2. I miss the launch hype back when Sonic Mania was releasing. What a difference to now.

  3. I’m going to have a tricky time choosing Game of 2017 at this rate. I really adored Zelda and Sonic Mania despite flaws, but Mario Odyssey has just come along. 

    Can’t see anything else this Christmas surprising me like these games have. 

  4. Watching the Sonic Mania animated intro. It describes everything great about the franchise. 

    Its so beautiful. Everything about it is perfect. 

    Why did Sega pull me back? After years of doubt of a true quality sequel ever happening. They just...did it.

  5. What time are Sonic Mania's reviews up?

  6. How's Mania fairing against the Classic trilogy to those who have had the privilege of playing it?

    1. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Well, the person who leaked it came on here and rated it a 9/10, but that's it so far, lol. Don't think anyone else has been able to play it yet tbh.

    2. TheOcelot


      Once I've played it I will probably rate it as Sonic 3&K > Mania > Sonic CD > Sonic 1 > Sonic 2 :P

    3. Mark1


      Avoiding what I can with Spoilers so it's really hard to interpret what the general opinion is here. I was under the assumption more than one was able to play it early :o everything about Mania seemed like it was on its way to be the ultimate Classic Sonic game so far.

    4. TheOcelot


      I haven't watched the opening cutscene yet. Gonna save that until I play it. I'm trying to go spoiler free. 

      I think Mania will be one of the best 2d games. 

    5. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Nope. Only the people who have managed to get the Special Edition Switch versions from best buys have been able to play it early, due to the broken street date and Nintendo not putting a lock on redeeming codes before release.

      As for the general opinion is so far: If you're not big on nostalgia, tone down your expectations by quite a bit, as the game is practically 2/3rds composed of it. Outside of that though the opinions have remained relatively static for everything else. Whether that's a good or bad thing... *shrugs*

  7. YouTube is the biggest place to avoid Mania footage folks, saw the thumbnail of one mega spoiler there.

    Please proceed with caution folks. Massively.

    Didn't want to experience that until Tuesday came.

    1. Fletch


      Sadly saw the thumbnail of a spoiler last night. 

      Feels bad man...

  8. Nintendo won E3. They really did. Switch is on its way to be the consoleto have.

    Pokemon RPG, Mario 3D, Yoshi, METROID PRIME FUCKING 4!! 

  9. Prepping for Smash Bros. 4 tournament this Thursday with my main man Sonic. Any other Sonic mains roaming about here?

    1. Darinian


      I'm more of a lucina main, and I've never been to a tournament. Are they fun

    2. Mark1


      I'd love to go to an official one but they always run during work up here in Scotland. These are university-led events. If it's any consolidation I always end up runner up in these. There's nothing like the excitement from a competitive Smash game.

    3. ThePrinceOfSaiyans


      Well, this is a Sonic forum, so I'd imagine so. I'm one, with Bayonetta being my side.

    4. Uraraka


      I love sonic but I can't pull off a win with him.  My main is Kirby and dedede

  10. Who won E3 this year? Nintendo hands down imo. Too many epic reveals, Pac Man, Palutena, Miis in Smash, Zelda Wii U, Mario Maker, Star Fox, Bayo 1 + 2, Hyrule Warriors, the list goes on...

    1. Scar


      Depends on your perspective.

      To me, it was a resumption of the usual proceedings.

      Only really one big surprise, and that was Star Fox

  11. Nintendo really did win E3 didn't they? The announcements keep coming. Pac Man in Smash Bros :')

  12. Any chance we'll see next gen Sonic next week? Could've sworn SEGA said we'd see it at E3.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Nope. They never did. That was some mis-information from another source. SEGA wouldn't show off next years game when they want to focus on this years boom.

    2. Mark1


      Was hoping they would have shown something to give some of the core Sonic fans something to look forward to. Mind in 2005 when Shadow the Hedgehog was their big focus but showed Sonic 06 as a teaser, something like that.

    3. TheOcelot


      If there is a new Sonic Team game in 2015, then that will be showed off/revealed next year. Not this year.

    4. Joy


      I don't think Sonic 06 was teased in 2005, it was a private tech demo that ended up getting leaked. That also might have been at TGS. Depending on what they've got planned then there potentially COULD be something but it'll be completely behind closed doors.

    5. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      If by some snowball's chance in Hell there /was/ a Sonic 2015 reveal, it would most likely just be a very barebones teaser.

    6. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      For the reasons that have been given. It'd be a way of saying "So here's a confirmation a Sonic game's coming next year, which you knew, but in the meantime, all aboard the Boom hype train."

  13. I've been away for a while, so what were the main problems with Lost World which can be fixed with later games? Do you think they should still stick with the formula?

  14. If there's one developer I had to choose as the best out there - I'd have to give it to Sakurai (the guy really listens to the fans and loves to treat them with the fanservice in his games)

    1. WarioBone


      I think I'd have to agree.

  15. Interested at the possibility of *SPOILERS* in SM3DW.

    1. Komodin


      What's there to spoil, really?

      Bowser kidnaps princesses; Mario, his girl, his bro, and his Bro go stop him; Bowser loses; everything is alright again.

    2. Mark1


      Actually there is some hints towards something in the game which could be a potential big spoiler, if you want to find out what check my post in the SM3DW thread

    3. Komodin


      ... Oh. That's certainly interesting.

  16. So...what's the general consensus on Lost World? I'm gobsmacked how the game was getting mediocre reviews. I thought this was going to do considerably better going off Colours and Generations before it.

    1. Carbo


      Could be better

    2. Soniman


      Mediocrity, apparently half the game terrible

    3. Chaos Warp

      Chaos Warp

      The impressions are up and down and all around

    4. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Kinda average... but technically, there is nothing wrong with it, other than the wisps/gyro controls?

    5. Detective Shadzter
  17. I know others don't feel the same way, but I love being gay

  18. Are there any other gay users here? I am...

    1. KHCast


      Lots. (Not me though)

    2. Lady Soniko

      Lady Soniko

      There's quite a lot actually.

    3. Wraith


      there are so many

    4. Frogging101


      Yeah, I could name a few.

    5. Yoko/葉子


      I am a transgender MtoF that likes girls if that counts.

    6. spinny


      There's quite a few round here. There's no reason to feel bad about it anyway, you're as normal as anyone else c:

    7. Debug Ring

      Debug Ring

      A lot.

      No need to be worried about it, nobody here ever attacks anyone for it, and from what I've seen, we majorly stick up for it!

    8. Winston
    9. Lady Soniko

      Lady Soniko

      Chooch is too I believe, and -Mark-

    10. Mark1


      I'm not ashamed of it. I love being this way. Thanks guys <3

    11. Mark1


      and girls sorry

  19. Mind what Iizuka said in regards to Smash Bros. How much would he know in regards to him appearing in the game again? Is that more to do with other people within SEGA?

  20. has the control scheme for lost world been revealed yet?

    1. Crow the BOOLET
    2. Mark1


      Are the double jump and homing attack mapped to the same button?

    3. Stritix
    4. Frogging101


      Is that a "Nope, it hasn't been revealed", or a "Nope, the double jump and homing attack are not mapped to the same button."?

    5. Cyrus


      3DS: A and B to jump, L and R to run, Y to spin dash.

    6. Senator NinjaShark

      Senator NinjaShark

      Press A to Jump, Press Start to Pause

    7. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      i think it's mapped to the same button. Going from Desert Ruins Act 3.

    8. Mark1


      I hope not

    9. Stritix


      The double jump and homing attack are mapped to different buttons. B to jump, B twice to double jump, B + A for the homing attack... No jump dash unfortunately.

      Super Smash Bros Brelee

    4. Blacklightning


      I... thought we already had one coming for E3?

    5. Mark1


      It is good to have it confirmed to be a trailer and not images as Iwata said before. (Probably due to his English not being too good)

  21. Just went through a weird glitch in Sonic 1 iOS, when it went to the Labyrinth part of the credits as Knuckles, he died hitting the spikes and I got a game over.

    1. Joy


      It's a well known bug. That will happen EVERY time. A patch is being released soon to fix it among other things.

    2. Mark1


      Ok. Cheers. :)

  22. What was this place like on the day Sonic was announced to be in SSBB?

    1. Spin Attaxx

      Spin Attaxx


    2. Mark1


      Probably lol

    3. Crash


      Probably what Spin Attaxx said
