  1. I don't want to get my hopes up, but what if its from Sonic 3K, the mini-boss theme for example. Also what if, and hear me out here, they have gotten around the music issues by getting Tee to remix the tracks, since so many people loved his remixes in Sonic Mania, or have finally cleared up the issues for a standard music release, and they plan to finally release Sonic 3K Taxman Edition this year? Don't worry I'm prepared to be totally and utterly wrong come Thursday.
  2. Clearly all these people have never seen or heard of a motion comic before, or a motion comic housed in an app. Because the things he describes basically sound like just that. A motion comic, but housed in an app, with extra crud like the character bios etc. I mean besides the voice acting and motion part most comic apps are exactally what he described his amazing project as. I mean the free apps you can use on your smart phone to load up downloaded comics have all the same features. Menus, bookshelves, covers you click on to open and flip through the comics page by page, filters for colour or black and white, retaining where you left off in each comic etc etc. It ain't a new concept, and adding the voice acting and motion to it isn't going to make it an amazing new thing that the industry hasn't seen or tried before. Plus his mock images looked like a 90's webpage, far cruder than any of the free offerings on the app store. I just don't get what he thinks is so groundbreaking. Or what these people he shows apparently see in it. Is he putting words in their mouth or what?
  3. Long time no see Stadium gang, I've been saving my sanity by staying away from old Penders for a while now. I decided to pop onto his Twitter the other day tho and saw this gem.. So.. from what I heard he was talking up getting it launched in Nov/Dec stay tuned for news. But here hes basically admitted that he hasn't even finished drawing the panels for the 1st volume.. Nice to see things haven't changed one bit in my absence.
  4. Going to totally get that shirt, tho I wish they had like the Tornado under him, fading out at the edges of the shirt so it doesn't look like he's floating in midair. Loving them embracing the community view and working fast to make bank on popular opinion, it's actually good business for a change rather than ignoring the money waiting for them like they did with Generations DLC...that still burns me.
  5. Yup, the PS4 version at least has no updates to download if you got physical. My previous copy was digital on Steam. So the PS4 version was new to my system and i just popped the disc in and away it went. Plus version etc all seems to be on disc even tho the disc comes up as "Sonic Mania".
  6. I'll put it here too in case anyone is interested. I'm streaming Mania Plus via Twich on my Playstation 4. TenkoTAiLS in a search sjould bring it up. There will obviously be spoilers tho. One of many now I'm sure
  7. Just got my copy, little bit sad that the Australian/New Zealand run doesn't have the poster that everyone seems to be sharing with their pics. Was that a retailer exclusive overseas? I also found the hidden message in the manual that Aaron mentioned, haven't seen anyone else with early copies mention this. It's hidden Morse Code. I'll let people figure it out for themselves, but for those of you that want spoiled I'll put this here : Edit : My bad, seems it was posted about a few days ago. Curse you Donni!!
  8. Depends which version, Steam you will have to wait till the Americans get it. Console you should be fine, it will go live on your release day since it's a local release on the local store front. You and I are in the same boat since I live in NZ, counting the final 12 hours till EB opens tomorrow and I can pick it up. Luckily I'll be asleep for most of those hours...if the kids let me 😕
  9. These surprises planned for the IDW Sonic panel have me pondering. Aaron seemed to imply that they would be comic related in the last stream when people were coaxing him about it being a new game etc. So the only things I can think of that would warrent shock or surprise would be either the return of the SatAM cast, predictable after the amount of people asking after them and the love Ian has for them, or the announcement of a companion comic perhaps. While I would like a new classic themed comic to run alongside the current modern one, I'm hoping it isn't an announcement that Mania Adventures will continue in comic form. Would much rather they green lit a cartoon or a second "season" of the web series than continuing it in a comic series.
  10. I'm really hoping that the AUS/NZ version comes with that double sided poster!! I'm picking up my copy tomorrow and I can't wait, even booked the day off work. Got it on Steam the first time. PS4 this time so I'll have all of Mania Mode to do all over again with all 5 characters and gettibg the trophies etc from scratch, and then Encore..will be a grand time playing from a fresh start on a new system!!
  11. So..now I'm conflicted. I would love to believe Ray is doing the double thumbs up Fonz style at the end of each act in Mania Plus. But now I'm left wondering if it's meant to be a nod to his character select screen animation from Sega Sonic Arcade. Mighty's seems to share some similarity with it too.. I'm so torn!!
  12. It's kind of reminiscent of that old classic style poster with Metal, his eyes in the background. But it's also similar to the final scene from the intro to Mania but instead of the HBH with Eggman's face in the background it's got all the heroes and Metal's face in the background. Now that just makes me sad that we won't be getting an updated intro. Aaron already covered that in the stream. Now if it was a poster for the announcement of a new Sonic Mania TV series with Adventures 5-parts being merged into one pilot...that would be something. Getting my hopes up, I know, I know.
  13. That holographic art print!! I must acquire one some how!! It is BEAUTIFUL!! I'm hoping Sega can get it up on the Sega Shop for the merch for Ep.5. Seriously!!
  14. 1) While it might not be aimed in it's entirety at kids, that doesn't mean it's not going to be kid friendly. 2) Also just because certain directors etc have previously worked on adult or child rated material doesn't mean all of their movies will fit that billing. Steven Spielberg for example... It's a franchise aimed at kids, who's "main" (being the operative word here) gross income comes from kids (and their parents), and is populated by colourful anthropomorphic animals. It's not going to rate children out of it's ticket sales, it would be box office self inflicted suicide to a degree higher than what they are already aiming for with this project. If it did make it into PG territory it would be a light PG so as to not exclude said children and the ticket sales their inclusion would generate, especially over what is a holiday period in a fair few countries. Those of you thinking it will be a hard PG or above just because of the people making the film, and some of their previous projects being as such, will be sorely disappointed.
