  1. Wait a minute. Is Tails actually playable solo in this release? Yeah, it's says there's two player co-op (which obviously includes Sonic & Tails), but there are no screenshots of just Tails on his own and it doesn't mention he's playable solo. Surely he's playable? If not, then what a fucking stupid decision to omit him being playable solo. I guess the challenge mode sounds kinda interesting. Hmm.
  2. Here's the fourth (and final) remix by Tee & Jun:
  3. "Knuckles in Sonic 2" is pretty much easy mode. They added extra lives at the top of tall structures (like in Chemical Plant) to reward climbing with Knuckles. Obviously Knuckles' glide allows you to breeze though zones.  Also, the special stages are even easier because the number of rings you have to collect is less when playing with Knuckles. 

    The only harder thing is having a slight disadvantage against some of the boss fights due to his lower jump height, especially against the Death Egg robot...

      I think the last time "Knuckles in Sonic 2" was released was in the Sonic Mega Collection?

    2. StaticMania

      It was in Mega Collection, excellent.

      Yeah, it's not immediately playable. You have to play Sonic 2 & Spinball 20 times each to unlock Knuckles in Sonic 2 which is all kinds of dumb.

      @TheOcelot "You have to play Sonic 2 & Spinball 20 times " - For a while I thought Sonic 2 & Spinball was a brand new lock-on game I never heard off. It took me a while to realize Sonic 2/Spinball wasn't lock-on, it was all a delirium as this never existed and notice the each in the phrase.

  4. "Knuckles in Sonic 2" being included in the SEGA Ages Sonic 2 Switch release is cool. I just hope this release is still gonna include the promised "cut content" whatever it is.

    Also, I'll laugh if they don't add Tails flight even though they are adding Sonic's drop-dash.

    1. Tracker_TD

      IIRC they didn't "promise" cut content. Just said they'd like to include it if they can.

      Knuckles in Sonic 2 is kinda not interesting

      Hope we get something else, too.

      Dropdash is cool, though.

      Man, I still remember the hype people had when Gens was coming up and the thought of seeing Chemical Plant (not to mention GHZ) on a modern engine was exciting af.

      shit seems like a lifetime ago

      I mean Forces may as well be modern Sonic's Sonic 4 so it works

    4. Miragnarok

      Forces is the Dreamcast equivalent of Sonic 4.

  6. On my youtube channel I mainly upload playthroughs of the classic Sonic games and because I stated my videos as "made for kids", all my comments are now turned-off. One of the cool things about uploading videos is reading and replying to comments, but I won't be able to do that anymore. All my exisiting comments will be deleted in 30 days. So my channel is now pretty useless.

    If I change it to "not made for kids" the comments return straightaway but I might get fined, so.....yeah

    Youtube is such a mess

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      That really sucks. I'm curious how that sort of thing will even get enforced, since, at least from what I've been following, it's been really unclear.

    2. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      I've changed it back to "not made for kids" for now... Lots of other Sonic youtube channels have left there's as not made for kids. I'm thinking my number of subscribers being so small they'll just ignore the channel. It's a tough one because I think I get plenty of comments/subscribers from kids under 13 but a lot more over this age.

      Will be interesting to see if my channel gets automatically set back to "made for kids" over the next few days.

      The Sonic The Hedgehog channel being restricted is ridiculous.

      I put my stuff as not for kids since early December and it seems to have stuck, even though I make Sonic parodies. I'll keep an eye out as well.

  7. On my youtube channel I mainly upload playthroughs of the classic Sonic games and because I stated my videos as "made for kids" (don't think I could get away with saying made for adults without being fined), all my comments are now turned-off. One of the cool things about uploading videos is reading and replying to comments, but I won't be able to do that anymore. All my exisiting comments will be deleted in 30 days. So my channel is now pretty useless. Fuck COPPA and fuck the idiots who made it happen.

      well...it's certainly a PS5 logo. nothing really unexpected here.

  9. PlayStation 5 logo has been revealed: #mindblown There's also been more rumours about PS5 having PS1, 2, 3 & 4 backwards compatibility. #Fingerscrossed
  10. I'm fine with Green Grove replacing Green Hill (and also in the next 3D Sonic game for that matter ;) )

      Slightly different green hill?

  11. "Gaming in 2020" is trending on twitter.

  12. A Sonic Adventure remake is what the fanbase needs and deserves! The remastered/remade soundtrack would be all kinds of awesome.

  13. I've watched the first two episodes of Doctor Who Season 12. Quite enjoying it so far.

      I’m glad this series has an overarching plot again.

  14. Alright you can have your PC Unleashed port, but only if we get a Colours port first.

      Knuckles Chaotix just so it can actually recieve an official modern port.

      Are we sure the whole Taxman Remaster thing isn't dead yet

    5. Sean

      I would really enjoy the MS/GG quadrilogy (1/2/Chaos/TT) getting the same treatment as the Genesis games. Incorporate the best features from each version (like getting rid of the ratchet scrolling Jungle Zone in S1 MS, but keeping the Underground Zone boss behavior from S2 MS so that avoiding the boulders is easier), make them widescreen, and provide a Sonic 3-style save feature. There could also be options to play the games as they were on the MS and/or GG, similar to how Sonic 3 Complete does it.

      @Your Vest Friend Very dead. So I guess the question is, which Sonic game deserves to be dead?

  17. My first status update in 2020...

    Happy New Year!

  18. The most significant low-point in this decade which finished with an amazing high-point started with Sonic 4 and finished with Mania. I'm not a fan of Sonic 4 (which I've made perfectly clear countless times on this forum), but I am grateful it exists, because I'm firmly in the belief we never would have gotten Sonic Mania (with the amazing amount of love, care & attention and it's deserved success) if it wasn't for Sonic 4 and the massive backlash which ensude. Whilst Sonic 4 Ep1 was everything I didn't want in a hyperthetical sequel to the classics, if it wasn't for SEGA deciding to bring back Metal Sonic-teasing his return at the end of ep1, we never would have gotten a new release of Sonic CD (as SEGA wanted to link Sonic CD to Sonic 4's backstory). What was originally gonna be a crappy emulation/port gave Taxman (Christian Whitehead) the chance to show-off his Sonic CD mobile proof of concept, which led to the release of the definitive version of this game (improved physics, 16:9 widescreen, unlockable Tails). Then we got Sonic 4 Ep2 which was an improvement over ep1 but still flawed. Taxman who obviously made a good impression with SEGA for his work on the CD remaster then teamed up with Stealth to make the mobile remasters of Sonic 1 (with unlockable Tails & Knuckles) & Sonic 2 (Boss Rush mode & Hidden Palace reimagined etc). Then submitted the 3K proof of concept which was not taken up by SEGA and then they got the chance to make Sonic Mania in 2017. Thanks to Mania's success they then got the chance in 2018 to add missing/scrapped content with a new release along with a gorgeous physical release, and the brillaint Sonic Mania Adventures created to help promote Sonic Mania Plus and the three or four Mania Adventures extended remixes done by Tee & Jun. So for me as a classic fan, the decade started with a terrible low point (classic Sonic's gameplay in Gens not being much better than Sonic 4's didn't help either), and ended on such a high with Mania's success. Whilst classic Sonic ended the decade on a high, Modern Sonic has gone in the opposite direction. What started well with Colour & Gens (which is considered a decent game even though I'm not it's biggest fan), went down-hill with SLW, Rise of Lyric (which could have been a decent game if SEGA hadn't fucked over Big Red Button who developed it) and Sonic Forces which was meh at best. Team Sonic Racing was at least decent and I like the Overdrive animated shorts.

      The following words have been found in the video so far:

      "A glimmer of flame"

      "Enduring every challenge"

      "Within this, my last puzzle"

      "Remember the words"

      "This next chapter belongs to you."

      "Growing with each success"

      "Ignis Aurum Probat"

      "ignis aurum probat" means "fire tests gold"

      How odd. Sonic twitter has removed their tweet.

  21. The Super Sonic boss fight in Sonic & Knuckles is best super Sonic final boss IMO.

      I like Advance 2's and Rush's the most, personally.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Eh, it's alright and it's certainly cinematic, but it's a touch too repetitive and you don't feel much of Super Sonic's power. You just redirect missiles. It's a bit tame. SA1 still holds the top spot. It's still just Super Headbutting as is basically every other fight, but the atmosphere was great. The entire game was leading up to that fight.

      I hope that we get a Super fight in the future that has more than that just headbutting the boss. The Darkspine and Excalibur fights feel a bit more meaningful in representing power. Heck, even the crappy Zavok fight in Forces has regular Sonic deliver a flurry of punches. Super Sonic should do more than just fly at hit problems until they die.

    5. Sean

      Sean

      Perfect Chaos still holds up for me since unlike other Super fights, the gameplay is nearly identical to the main story and the entire method of damaging the boss involves maintaining your speed for a period of time. I wish more Sonic bosses expanded on that idea.

    6. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Only issue I have with SA1's fight is that if you get hit by the whirlpool projectile-things (especially in the second phase) it's very hard to regain enough momentum to reach Perfect Chaos brain, often resulting in Sonic dying, then running out of rings and having to restart the final boss from the beginning. At least with the S&K fight you can get hit, drop back and replenish your ring total if you need to and then take down Eggman. Also the story & zone sequence leading up to Doomsday zone being so good adds to the exciting atmosphere of the boss fight.

      I mean, yeah I like SA1's final boss, it's definitely one of the better Super Sonic fights and it's not particularly difficult with a bit of practice.

      I also like SA2's final boss which is just as good as SA1's if not slightly better (a bit more forgiving perhaps) .

    7. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      It's a cool boss fight but i see where everyone is coming from with sa1's boss fight. It had build up to the big showdown. 

      Sonic and knuckles was all like "HEY! GOOD JOB GETTING ALL THE EMERALDS! HERE'S A SECRET STAGE!" just throws you right into the chase lol.

  22. Replayed Odyssey over the last few days. Just beat Long Journey's End at the first attempt. First time I ever played Odyssey it took me countless attempts to beat this stage. Now I find it almost too easy to beat.

    1. LukA8

      LukA8

      I unlocked and beat it yesterday as well. I'd say it's a lot more forgiving than the Champion's Road from 3D World

    2. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      its definitely the easiest final challenge level in a Mario game so far
