  2. Soooooooo, Mania turns 2 years old today. Can you remember your reaction when Mania was first announced?

    1. Thigolf


      I was asleep because it was at 3am

      I... don't think I can remember. I wanna say I was hyped as hell, but I honestly struggle to recall details from even a few days ago.

      Classic Sonic 2D, meh not interested.

      Not gonna lie, despite how I felt about the game afterwards, I was consumed by the hype

      "It's about time."

    7. Adamabba


      cool but where's the 3d sonic announcement

    8. DiamondX


      Like @Thigolf I was asleep but I woke up minutes before Forces was shown. I opened up SSMB to see what they announced and I remember thinking "Is the anniversary game really a 2D one?".

      Also Mega Drive does, appearently

      Which is super weird

  4. You know the Big Shaker boss (Hydrocity act 1 mini boss from Sonic 3 and second part of the Eggman boss-fight in act 2 of Hydrocity in Mania). It has a different attack pattern in Mania compared to Sonic 3 and I've only just figured out the attack pattern in Mania (I was previously convinced there was no pattern in Mania and was, therefore a slightly unfair fight).  

    In Sonic 3 when after the mini-boss first attacks-comes down from the left side of the top of the screen (and disappears off up the right side), the next time he attacks he comes down from the right side (then disappears off up the left side) and then he just keeps alternating each side he attackes from. Attacks from the left, then right, then left, then right etc. A nice easy pattern to remember.

    Whereas his attack pattern in Mania is quite different. Whatever side Eggman is attacking from when he lands on the middle platform (which then rotates and causes the water to move rapidly), he will then continue attacking from the same side everytime until he lands on the middle platform after attacking from the opposite direction-and then will continue to attack from that direction everytime until he next lands on the middle platform after attacking from the other direction etc.

      You know what? That boss in Mania really isn't necessary. The first half of the boss is super easy, but it's fun. The second part is a bit tedious because because the pool is larger than in S3. And the fact that it's basically a second boss fight in the same act makes it feel drawn out. Really annoying.

    2. TheOcelot


      Yeah agreed. I mean, S3 HC act2 boss being reworked for HC act1 in Mania was brilliant (Sonic trying to suck-up Eggman instead of Eggman trying to suck-up Sonic), so then adding the act1 mini boss from Sonic 3 onto the end of Mania's act2 Eggman boss felt like an odd choice. Results in the total boss sequence going on longer than necessary. Whereas the "Laundro Mobile" boss is fine on it's own.

  5. Not getting the weekend bonus which normally starts on a Friday evening (in the UK). That sucks. Edit: The Weekend bonus has now started.
  6. Come on SEGA it's about time you re-released another Sonic game. I'm not talking about the usual re-releases of the classics. How about one of the modern games?

    1. JezMM


      The more modern you go, the more hefty a job a re-release is.  Whacking out a mega drive emulator with a few mods or bells and whistles attached to it is a much simpler task than porting a game to run 100% natively on a new console, which a modern game re-release would require.

    2. Diogenes


      rerelease forces

      "What's that? Another port of Sonic Adventure DX? Gladly!"

    4. shdowhunt60


      They got so little going on its really quite comical.

    5. Wraith


      Just give me Sonic Unleashed so I can move onto the next realm

    6. Adamabba


      im not happy forces is the only 3d sonic game on switch. SA1, 2, Heroes, or Unleashed ports would be great

      How about all the Nintendo exclusives get ported finally. Wait, do they have to stay exclusive? Colors for Switch then.

  7. If the kickstarter succeeds and it makes it to Switch (I have my doubts), I'd rather they next release it on PS5 and not PS4. With PS5 (expectably) being released in the second half of 2020, porting to the next-gen console would seem like a smarter move. Although, I get the feeling it could be a looooooong wait.
  8. How long does the daily bonus last? I thought it was supposed to be about 30 minutes, but today it definitely lasted longer (I was on fire today. Played about 13 races - won eight and finshed 2nd about four times...and one 8th place, heh). Nearly saved up enough coins to get the Crash Scienist/Probulot 2000 bundle.
  9. Perhaps will be a new Alien game, as Alien Isolation was received well. Or maybe another Football Manager or Total War?
  10. Reached Gold Tier. The Mammoth kart which you need to unlock in order to complete a Themed Challenge is the second unlockable in the Gold Tier (which I should be unlocking soon). I'm currently saving up coins in order to unlock the other kart; Probulot 2000 (which costs 9,900 coins) in order to complete the aformentioned Themed Challenge. When I was playing an online race; Prehistoric Playground earlier this evening, one of the people I was racing against was a pro. He/she was playing as N. trophy, I was Baby Coco. Shortly after the race started I placed a breaker behind me and the pro-play hit the beaker, spun and then immediately accelerated away from me. Left me for dust and finished 10 seconds ahead (I finished 2nd). How the hell did they accelerate away from me so quickly? I damaged them with the beaker, it should have taken them a second or two to get going again. I'm the one who should have been able to pull away. Urghhhh...feels like they cheated.
  11. Funny you should mention this. I've tried so hard but can't win a race with Baby Crash for the life of me (had a few 2nd places). One of the challenges is to win an online race of Prehistoric Park with Baby Carsh, but everytime I try I seem to lose so much time. I've also encountered some horrendus bad-luck and bizzare glitches when racing with Baby Crash. Gonna take a break from CTR because the Online mode is really pissing me off.
  12. Nice. Would be so cool if the beta's include details of the scrapped R2 stage or the scrapped Sonic 1-styled special stage.
  13. ...and I've already reached Silver Tier and unlocked Baby T. Just need to unlock Baby Crash and then I'll have all the new characters.
