  1. Rayman 2 is one of the best games I’ve ever played and will ever play so I’m sad it’ll never get the follow up it deserves. RIP

    1. Soniman


      Rayman 3 literally came out tight after though 🤔

    2. Jango


      Which of the 10 versions you played?

    3. TheOcelot


      I played Rayman Revolution (PS2), which I understand is best version.

      I like Rayman 2 but 3 is better.

    4. Jango


      During my childhood I only played the PS1 version which I heard is the second worst (the N64 being the worst of all). Since I didn't knew any better, I loved that game neverthless. It was when my friend from middle school told me he also had Rayman 2 and, at the time, I didn't understood why his version of the game had all those unique levels, power-ups and even a cooler world map. It was because he owned the DC version, which was way better, almost like a definitive edition.

    5. azoo


      @TheOcelot Rayman Revolution is not the best version of Rayman 2 at all (the added hub and reworked pacing is just.. bad), it’s very much the N64/PC or Dreamcast version that’s the best. And 3 is not REMOTELY the better game. lmao 

      Unless we’re speaking specifically gameplay (which WAS a step up, Rayman controls great in 3). The tone and presentation of 3 is way off, feels like an attempt to pastiche the Shrek vibe of “edgy / self aware fairy tale parody” vibe that was present in the early 00s, weird celebrity VA for globox and all. Plus the game only sees the return of less than half of the 2 cast; with the only ones remaining being ones they could make annoying and smarmy like they did.. a lot of 2’s charm to me was the genuineness of the characters,the mystery of that world and the ever rising stakes at hand, so for the immediate sequel to make a kinda mean spirited parody of it all feels kinda bad man. 

      Also the level design takes a backseat to the combat pretty hard. A lot of 2’s shining moments come down to the platforming as well as its atmosphere. In 3 they kinda replaced half of the platforming with enemy hordes, and the atmosphere is kinda spoiled by characters dropping one liners everywhere. I wouldn’t have minded either the combat or one liners nearly as much if they didn’t actively omit those platforming or quiet atmospheric moments tho. 

      @Soniman I don’t hate Rayman 3 (I think it’s one of the better platformers of that era and it’s still pretty good) but I think a lot of my desire for Rayman 4 comes from the hole in my heart left unfilled by 3 lmao 

      @Jango N64 version is identical to the Dreamcast version but with lower quality music and textures.. and a couple less mini games. It’s the same as the original PC release bar the music basically.

    6. Jango


      Really!? Well damn, I though the N64 version was a port of the PS1 instead. I guess the PS1 version indeed was the worst of all hahaha I still had a blast tho'. I'll never forget that final boss or the Cave of Bad Dreams.

    7. azoo


      I still like the ps1 version too. It’s lacking in a lot of ways (the added VAs are uhh not worth the disc space they used up lol) but it’s still largely the same game, and the team that (Ubisoft Shanghai) made it added quite a few nice things despite it all. There are a few Rayman 1 enemies and concepts that make a return in it that I found cool, and the added bonus 2D beta of the game being unlockable was dope. Also Ly being your guide instead of Murfy just made more sense lol.

    8. Soniman


      I'm kinda bitter because I only played Rayman 2 ps1 and do hearing they removed damn near half the levels blew my mind because now I feel like it's almost a Unwiished situation where I didn't get to experience the real version of the game. This is only in hindsight of course because I didn't know that when I played it as a kid and had a blast 

    9. Jango


      I completely forgot Murphy wasn't in the PS1 version AT ALL. When I first played Rayman 3 I was like "Dafuq is this guy?".

      Also, I liked Rayman 3 a lot aswell. Still waiting for Ray4. It actually was going to happen, but they cancelled it in favor of Raving Rabbits (F).

    10. azoo


      Murfys kinda pointless honestly lol, and at this point thanks to his condescending tone in 3 and annoying missions in Legends I wouldn’t mind not seeing him in a future title. Give me Ly any day over him LOL 

      also @Soniman I highly recommend emulating the N64 or DC version someday. One of the few games I’ll give a perfect 10 

    11. Jango


      I goooootta do this too. My only time playing the DC version of Ray2 was at this friend's house and we barely played 2 levels because he wanted to play something else instead lol. All I remember was the world map which was identical to Crash 1 and a golden glove power-up which didn't existed in the PS1 version. I was like "bro, I've never seen this!". It was at this moment that little Jango learned about console differences.

    12. azoo


      DC versions map is interesting.. I kinda like the Hall of Doors map from all the other versions more tbh, but the island is neat too. 

      Also again I don’t dislike 3 at all, it’s a game I still enjoy and I grew  up with. It just pales in comparison to 2 in all ways but controls and maaaybe art direction (tho in that regard they’re very similar). 

      A Rayman 4 would need to top/match 2 or at least be closer to it / better than 3 to be worth it so I’m kinda glad in hindsight raving rabbids didn’t end up that game. Feel like a wiimote waggle combat game like they intended woulda been the series black sheep much like the game itself ended up being lol 

  2. I will never hate anyone in this earth more than I do Murfy when he said “see you in Rayman 4”. Hate him 

    1. Dejimon11


      But you got Rayman origins which is meant to be a seq-*bricked*

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry


      Welcome to my world

    3. azoo


      Origins is the (second) best game in the series. It’ll never replace a Rayman 4 unfortunately 

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      I hate Murfy for another reason - I've recently been trying to do the Legends challenges to get the platinum and it seems whoever runs Legends' challenges really, really likes those annoying gimmicky Murfy stages where you need to use him to manipulate the level. So you have to do that while rushing, essentially.

    5. azoo


      Legends is like the worst Rayman game besides 1 so yeah p much makes sense 

    6. Soniman


      Sad part is Ancel will never do it at this rate 

    7. Dejimon11


      @Supah Berry fun fact: That line was meant to be a joke. They never had plans for a 3rd game. The GCN tech demo shown off at space world was just meant to be a tech demo and nothing more lol.


      @azoo better or worse than learning that Rayman 4 was in development but then scrapped it to be raving Rabbids?

    8. azoo


      @Soniman he left ubi soft last September so the dream is beyond dead. Unless he’s the reason it was never made (he was spoken of as if responsible for why BGE2 kept getting delayed and budget-blown). Either way it sucks man

      @Dejimon11 there were a few rayman 4s in production and they were all canceled. Then ancel said in 2017 he wanted to make it for real after bge2 was done. And now he’s gone. yup. nice. real nice

    9. Dejimon11


      I don’t even know if I want Ancel to even work on Rayman 4 anymore.  

    10. azoo


      I kinda don’t because I’m not sure if he knows what made Rayman good anymore. But idk if anyone at UbiSoft does tbh. Then again what made me like Rayman is kinda a far cry from what he became

    11. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      "Ancel". Well that name gets an immediate "yikes" these days.

    12. azoo


      Yeah I don’t need a reminder lol.

  3. remember when zippo responded to the colors leak with "oh interesting also i have new info about that" and then fucked off

      this guy's a dead end

    4. Zaysho


      Why is anyone taking him seriously lol

    5. Jango


      He's a member here, it's not polite to call him a liar like that. Do it when he's online 

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Mykonos Fan, an admin and generally trustworthy guy from Retro, said that Zippo mentioned "Sonic Colours Ultimate" by name to him a while ago. That's the only reason I'm holding on anymore, thinking that there could be a nugget of truth in there. What Zippo mentioned was vague enough that it could fit a variety of different scenarios. As time goes by, I'm more and more bothered by the lack of specificity. He's updated his blog to say "of yeah Colours is one of the remasters I heard about", but he didn't originally say remasters and spoke much more about obscure games ala Advance, Pocket Adventure and R. If he's got any real info, now is the time to get specific and prove it, or just shut up if he's not willing to say more.

      The fact that he says he had more info on Colours Ultimate but is hasn't said more yet is not doing himself any favours.

    7. Jango


      I trust MykonosFan aswell, but what if it was a Mandela effect lol

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Mandela effect how?

    9. Diogenes


      personally i don't see much point of fussing over zippo's or anyone else's leaks; even if they're entirely legit, we still won't know until an official announcement (or at least a more substantial kind of leak than "some guy says") anyway.

    10. Jango


      You know... Maaaaaybe he thought Zippo said "Sonic Colors Ultimate", but it's a fake memory. I mean, guy's spits so many things (and so little at the same time).

    11. azoo


      I mean I’d of course prefer an actual leak or a proper announcement but I’ve given up in getting either of those things anytime soon lmao 

    12. jungle_penguins


      Telling y'all, the more a leaker knows of general unknown stuff the more likely it's nonsense. After all the Sonic Forces leaker was a one off. Not like they appeared with info about Sonic 2031 or whenever the next game releases.

  4. The duality of Knuckles' characterization. Anyways, I'm gonna give the thread title a whirl. My Sonic 30th prediction is that they're gonna wait until June again to say anything and new stuff isn't gonna be out until mid-late next year. Again. This is of course my way of saying "prove me wrong losers" to Sega, but yaknow.
  5. MykonosFan is a trustworthy dude, I’d say. I agree though, something doesn’t add up. Especially when he says he’s got new info he’ll update with and then just.. sits on it for a while first. Like why wait? If you leak, you leak. If it needs verifying first then he probably shouldn’t bring it up until it is lol.
  6. I don’t think it’s that easy to write off, even if I’m having a REALLY hard time believing him. He apparently gave news of Colors Ultimate to MykonosFan on Retro a good few months before it got to us. Best case scenario for him he could be legit, but I believe if he has any intel it’s probably a mix of real and fake sources. Or that he found the Colors Ultimate listing way before any of us and has been waiting on a time it was convenient to bring it up as “part of the plan” lol.
  7. special announcement:

      Eh, it's just the usual business lingo claptrap. The big giveaway is that it ends with "such a person will be the ideal employee." There's more to life than serving The Economy.

    6. Your Vest Friend
  12. I really didn't want this year to be thrown away to a port or remaster, buuuuuuuut Covid I guess. Yup. Sigh. I'm just hoping there's more they're planning than just this, in the long run. Would be wild if this was the big thing they were planning all along. And if so, would it be more than a basic port or remaster? I can't see why this would get a limited edition release or be labelled "ULTIMATE" if it were just the same game again bar a higher poly model.. ..Is this another attempt at a "director's cut"? I mean likely not, but worth stating just to get it out.
  13. after going Joker Mode i can say sonic colors getting a remaster is fine. if this is all there is to the 30th anniversary itll be confirmation that im allowed to mentally check out

    1. azoo



      sonic @ me every single time i see his face

  14. if this is what the 30th anniversary is spent on i think i will scream

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      If it's all they have, I'm 100% certain that it's because of delays and the pandemic.

    2. Azure Blue Tori
