  1. I've always had an aversion to the term myself. It's mostly used to refer to Sonic and the other anthropomorphic characters as a collective species, when most of them literally have the name of their species already a part of their full name, so it seemed pointless. To me it was just part of the old American Sonic Bible that only survived as long as it had with the original Archie Sonic continuity, after that died so did the term.
  2. I wonder how long it will be before gaming sites begin claiming that everyone was actually wrong about Mania, and that it's actually massively overrated/awful, similar to what Gametrailers did to Generations. Maybe if Forces turns out bad they'll claim it "opened their eyes to how bad Sonic is again."
  3. Things you'll never get tired of in Sonic

    When you bop Eggman on his bald head and he looks at you with "OH!" expression. Then when he hits you and he laughs, the bastard.
  4. Sega should pay these guys to use this in another Adult Swim Sonic commercial. Use it to advertise Mania and have it be Knuckles themed.
  5. First hit was a stay bullet from a buzzbomber in Green Hill (go figure). First death was against the first Hard Boiled Heavy, the physics in that fight fucked me over when Sonic wouldn't jump far enough over a missile. No game overs. However my second death was in Act 2 of Studiopolis, when I was transitioning on one of those tube like platforms I jumped off because I saw something that looked like a passageway to a special stage and ended up falling through the entire floor of the stage. I choose not to count that one as my fault.
  6. Holy crap, I wasn't expecting Mania's special stages to give me so much trouble. Has anyone found the trick to them yet? I get that jumping allows me to turn on a dime when I hit the ground but... jeez.

    The remasters spoiled me a bit with being able to restart when I knew I was about to screw up. Can't in this one. Gotta redo the entire game over if you mess up.

    1. サイヤ人の王子


      Yeah, you gotta learn were to jump. You can skip good portions of the stage with a well placed jump.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Not even a case of jumping to shortcut, there's times you practically need to jump at mach 3 to make sure you don't fall off course as turning won't be sharp enough, or you need to control your speed.

    3. Shiguy


      Never go mach 3, it's too inconsistent in the later special stages too be reliable. Instead focus on keeping a steady pace at mach 1 to keep your time up.

      Once you've hit mach 2 avoid spheres until you've feel confident you'll get the emerald. If not well then kneel and pray for mach 3 to cooperate.

    4. Maxtiis


      Yeah, I think my first priority should be collecting as many rings as possible when the stage starts since they're placed in very awkward positions.

      I've managed to get the first 4 emeralds but the 5th is giving me a lot of shit.

    5. Shiguy


      Wait till ya to the 6th, hope you like tight turns and really dickish spike placement. :/

      Looking forward to it.

  7. It's great to see the glowing reviews this game has received. Despite my optimism for the game I actually was expecting a lot of negativity in the reviews; considering how bad many modern gamers seem to be at the classics, I thought I was going to read reviews about how the critics thought the game was too hard merely because they died a lot and blame the game for it instead of their lack of skill. Like Sonic is now the new Dark Souls or some crap again. Much to my delight though many of the reviews I've read are actually well put together and very insightful, and no I'm not just saying that because the game is reviewing well. I've read plenty of reviews of games I've liked where the reviewer ultimately praised the game, but their points were incoherent and points were organized sporadically throughout. The only one I've read but didn't like was the God is a Geek one; is it really necessary to tell people their opinion on the Adventure games was wrong because you think they're garbage? Can't you review Sonic Mania on its own merit instead of relying on putting down the 3-D games just to artificially elevate this game by comparison? And the mention of Trump was completely unnecessary; keep politics away from my video games.
  8. I've seen Youtube commenters saying that they hope the announcer is a place holder because "He sounds terrible." The nerve of these people.
  9. I'm sorry, just what? I get you guys wanted heroes that "would feel like Sonic," but choosing Classic Sonic is just a cop out. And you mean to tell me that other characters were in consideration, but you went with the one who is technically already playable again? I know that when the first game play trailers were revealed I was white knighting a bit on Sonic Team's behalf but give me a break, even I can see just how retarded some of these choices are. I'm still expecting the game to turn out fine, but it certainly seems we're getting a lesser experience than we could have.
  10. I haven't actually gotten around to playing the Crash N. Sane Trilogy yet, so for those that have I have to ask: did changing the hitbox on Crash from a box to a sphere really make the game as hard as people are making it out to be? Between Maximilian Dood, the Super Gaming Bros., and now Alpharad (although he says it's the first time he's played it so in that instance it makes more sense) it seems a bit ridiculous just how many times I've seen these guys die on Road to Nowhere alone, when I recall it not being extremely difficult in the original.

    1. VEDJ-F


      The two bridge levels seem to be the only place where the hitboxes have a serious effect on the difficulty. 

    2. Maxtiis


      I'll take your word for it then.

  11. You say copying, I say refining.
  12. This game will be fine. I have full confidence in the dev team, especially after all the info we've had revealed to us. It's Forces we should be concerned about, although I'm more easily pleased than most here are so I'm expecting it to be at least better than Lost World.
  13. I've been on a classic pc gaming binge lately, and boy I thought that Fire Emblem was the poster child for living and dying by RNG, but Fallout 1 & 2 are definitely contenders for that position.

  14. Which is a shame too. One of the things I've always wanted to do was complete my Archie Sonic collection and while I would prefer to have the original floppy prints, having the ability to purchase reprints would make things significantly easier, not to mention overall cheaper. And these comics deserve to be available for anyone interested to buy, not just swept under the rug as if the past 24 years didn't happen. Just another reason to hate Penders I guess. Really, thanks for making the comic even more difficult to read man. My wallet will appreciate it too when I finally decide to hunt down floppys because I never see those graphic collections available anymore, and even then they don't cover everything.
  15. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    I haven't seen this on the forum yet, so I might as well post this here. I'm sure you guys will appreciate it: Not sure if its real or not but I still thought it was funny.
