  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

    3. NegaMetallix


      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?". 



    1. Thigolf


      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. 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

    7. Badnik Zero

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

  6. Another crossover...


    1. tailsBOOM!


      How long until Tails and that fox girl get fan art together?

    2. SupahBerry


      Why does Shadow have a red stripe on his arm?


      Also, why did they put both characters on the opposite side of their own logos???

    3. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Cause Shadow does have red stripes on his arms @SupahBerry

    6. dbzfan7


      Already using Tails better than other mobile and main games...that's sad.....downloading now.

    7. Tatters


      I loved this game till you have to grind a lot of slimes to get a lot of gems. Beware. This game is mostly paid to win and to get silver you have to pay over 45 dollars.

  7. I've beaten N. Trophies time-trial in Twlight Tour. I'm pretty sure in order to beat Oxide's trime trial you need to keep the white-boost going all the way through to the end after you pick it up halfway through lap 1....

      tfw it's your birthday and SSMB sends their love


      Lolz thanks Ocelot!

  10. Hope a release date for Sonic 2 SEGA Ages (Switch) release is announced soon. I'm curious as to what additional features it'll include (aside from the arcade version).

    1. tailsBOOM!


      If it adds playable Tails, I'll buy it.

  11. When a fan says Sonic 2 is a better game than Sonic 3

    Image result for skeptical gif


    1. Your Vest Friend
    2. Thigolf


      they're right though

    3. Strickerx5


      Eh, while I prefer 3&K, both are pretty interchangeable to me at the end of the day.

      Like, as long as it ain't CD or 1 taking that spot

    4. Polkadi~☆


      Oh, dear! 😠 I’ll have to tell them that their opinion is totally valid, and that I will not see them as any lesser for it! Hah, see how they like that!

    5. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      I personally think that 3&K is the best game from a technical standpoint, but prefer CD personally and find the original to be a work of absolute genius that no other game ever managed to repeat.

    6. Joy


      3 is probably the better game when being objective but I've always preferred 2 for its pacing. Sonic 3K has a lot of zones that feel more " standard platformer with speedy intervals" than a platformer that can accomodate speed for players that have mastered the level design and Sonic's control. For me Sonic Mania mixed Sonic 2's speed and Sonic 3K's exploration perfectly, it feels like the game I usually hear 3K itself being praised as.

      Metropolis still sucks, I'll happily give Team 3K the point on that one! 😋


    7. Solister


      I guess S3&K is more technical advanced but I have much more nostalgia with S2 which can be a bit more pleasant to play.

      As taken CD to the discussion, I believe this one have a more "versatility" in most points looking you can play it almost everywhere and you can still keep replaying it, both bad and good future, lots of times in your life and never get tired.

      However though, taking S2 and S3 (Solo), I believe my vote still goes to S2 as S3 isn't much more than an "advanced" version of S2 as well I have lots of memories with this one. I also never used to play S3 much, though.

      And yep, I believe S1 is the most "poor" of all of them. Even being the one which started the whole thing, is pretty weak compared the others, it's the only main classic I still haven't finished yet.

    8. Eurisko


      3&K is a better game but I have amore nostalgia with 2.

    9. Polkadi~☆


      My nostalgia is with Sonic 2, I’ve had way more fun with Sonic 3&K than I would have thought (I still don’t know all the secrets!), Sonic 1 pales in comparison.

    10. Wraith


      Sonic 3 only has one or two dud levels while Sonic 2's entire back half is full of them

    11. Badnik Zero

      Badnik Zero

      Sonic 2 is a great game, but I find it kind of vanilla after S3&K. Also I’ve probably played Sonic 2 to death, where S3&K is so long that I forget sections of it are there until I play it.

    12. tailsBOOM!


      ... It's true though

  12. Playing Online. I was on the final lap of Oxide Station and was gonna finish 2nd. Got hit by a clock, fell over an edge and instead of respawning I landed on an earlier part of the stage, had to navigate that bit of the lap again and finished 3rd... Fuck off Activision/Beenox.

    1. Your Vest Friend

      *Naughty Dog

      Pretty sure that was in the original too. 

  13. Beating Oxide's time in Blizzard Bluff was super hard. So, onto the next one.

  14. Beat Oxide's time in Coco Park.

  15. Today's Sonic live stream:


  16. I've tried so many times but I can't beat Oxide's time in Inferno Island.

  17. Wohoo, beart Oxide's Tiny Area time. Had a rubish second lap but made up for it by blitzing the final lap.

    1. Jango


      There's always Tiny Temple left, although it looks fairly easy if you can keep blue fire.

  18. It's boiling in the UK...and it's raining

  19. Beat Oxide's Time Trial in Polar Pass.

  20. Decided to have another ago at Cortex Castle Oxide Time Trial today, and beat it at the second attempt:


    1. TheOcelot


      *Adds Hot Air Skyway to the beaten list*

    2. TheOcelot


      Also, just beat Oxide N.Gin labs time (took a few attempts-Oxide is a demon on the final lap). Oxides time is 2:39:65. My time was 2:39:39 :)
