  1. Here's the SEGAbits written and video reviews (same content): http://segabits.com/blog/2018/07/14/sonic-mania-plus-review-worthy-of-an-encore-ps4-xbox-one-switch-pc/ I gave it an A+........ out of A+.
  2. Interview with Tee Lopes: 


  3. I interviewed Tee Lopes for an hour about his career and Sonic Mania's soundtrack! Really cool guy. http://segabits.com/blog/2017/09/13/swingin-report-show-89-sonic-mania-tee-lopes-composer-interview/
  4. SEGAbits Review: http://segabits.com/blog/2017/08/14/review-sonic-mania-ps4-xbox-one-switch-pc/
  5. There is an in-game in-universe explanation for how you get from Zone to Zone. Various members of the dev team have already said it is longer than Generations and shorter than or on par with S3&K in number of Zones. So doing the math thats more than 9 but less than or equal to 14, right? Not spoiling what I've seen, just laying out what was already revealed.
  6. Having played (nearly) the full game, I can say that most are likely not spoiling because a lot of the fun comes in the surprises. I urge people to ignore spoiler reviews and especially those channels, like GameXplain, that try and post the "every easter egg" videos as soon as embargo is lifted. I was debating how much I'd reveal in my review, but after the end of the second zone I decided to not spoil a lot in my review.
  7. Regardless of TMNT rights, classic Archie reprints show that IDW has a working relationship with them, so should Archie need to be involved at all there is already that professional connection.
  8. I really do think that SEGA and Archie had talks in the Fall of 2016 and things didn't work out, they went their separate ways, but contractually neither one could comment on the situation, disparage the other party or give the license to another publisher for a set amount of time (6 months?). SEGA has since signed with another publisher (IDW most likely, or KaBOOM! Studios) and the series will continue with a #1 issue but the old numbering will continue much like IDW's Walt Disney Comics and Stories which displays both the new number and the ongoing number. IDW already publishes some TPBs for Archie (TMNT Adventures and classic Archie) so I could see them signing a deal to continue the reprints. Also, I could see Genesis of a Hero and Sonic Mega Drive: Overdrive not seeing their individual final issues published, but they will give the full stories trade paperbacks.
  9. New interview with Aaron Webber from yo boys at SEGAbits
  10. I interviewed Cook & Becker CEO Maarten Brands, discussing the art book and the process they go through in working with SEGA on their projects. Give it a listen:
  11. Somebody on YouTube is telling me the comic is back in April because "SEGA forgot to sign their license again". Is there any truth to this? I think the phrasing "forgot to sign their license again" sounds very amateurish and something a child would say when attempting to explain how license agreements work. I cannot imagine something as simple as "Oh! I forgot to sign the license! That is why there was a delay!"
  12. My letter was published in that god awful Super Special issue, lol. Edit: Did a SEGA News Bits featuring my thoughts on the whole thing:
  13. FYI, seeing new solicits does not mean the cancellation is not happening. It is entirely likely that Archie and SEGA agreed on an end date/issue number and they will continue to release solicits and issues until this, with a proper press release as the final issue nears. Note that subscriptions are 12 issues, and with their removal from the store it is likely that the series ends in less than 12 issues. Some are treating the possible cancellation like it was a wrench thrown into Archie at the last minute, but it is far more likely that this was a decision made in a more professional manner and that given their long history together - despite Archie's many f*** ups - they agreed on a way to end their relationship so as to not leave loose threads or anger fans.
  14. I doubt it. Sonic licensing has really been on the ball, I would not be shocked if SEGA has been meeting with other publishers and the reason for the cancellation is that they already have somebody in mind. It's bad business to let a license for a comic end with a dedicated fanbase and not have a plan in place.
