    Saw the newest episode. Another nice development for Momo and while they were short, the Todoroki bits was cool. The ending scenes definitely pumped me up

    I'm happy they made filler about her during her internship. Honestly, I like how the show expands on some parts of the manga.

    Minor correction: it's Sega Forever, not Sega Ages.
     
    Sega Forever can get fucked. I haven't tried any of the emulated titles on the service, but I can't emphasis enough how garbage it is for ruining perfectly good ports of the Genesis Sonic games, games that I paid for YEARS AGO and functioned perfectly fine on multiple devices up until the update. Worse controls, inability to restore purchases (and even when it does work, I still get ads for Sega games), and overall worse performance since my phones are pretty old at this point. Not to mention that apparently the Forever versions have an online-only requirement but I'm not 100% certain on that. It doesn't surprise me at all that Sega is continuing to ruin more of their mobile releases with it. I managed to rollback and backup personal copies of my iOS/Android versions of Sonic 1/2/CD to their previous states after a lot of hoop-jumping, and I am never updating them again. I have Sonic 4 on iOS as well and the same thing applies even though they're not very good games to begin with. I'm not even going to give the updated version a shot: I learned my lesson three times over now.
    Besides that, I don't get what the point of bringing Sonic 4 back is when we have Mania.

    More chart numbers are in from PAL this week, and Mania Plus is continuing its encore lap:
    Opened at #3 overall in Australia across all units; and was respectively #3 in Switch charts, #5 in PS4 charts, and #7 in XBO charts.
    In Germany, Mania Plus opened within the top ten spots for all three platforms, debuting at #5 on Xbox One, #6 on PS4, and #7 on Switch.
    Opened at #4 overall in New Zealand across all units; and was #7 in the PS4 charts.
    Opened at #9 overall in the Switzerland charts across all units.
    Finally, back in the UK charts, Mania Plus only slid down a few spots, dropping from #5 last week to #8 this week. (Still not quite able to catch up to the bandicoot, who is still ruling the charts at number one.)

    Nah I'd rather they keep the neo form. Much more threatening.  plus the neo form gives him the ability to talk opening up for a larger plot. Just the old beeper metal was cool but got boring fast since there's only so much a silent bot can do. Thankfully a lot of people like his return. Granted it depends on what artist get a HD of him to make him look bad as like this issue

    Holy shit, the choreography in this issue was on point. Very rarely has a comic captured just how intense someone like Sonic fights, but goddamn.

    Well if this is Cool Edge, neat I guess? Was kinda hoping for something like Dragon Road, Jungle Joyride, or Eggmanland as a potential second Unleashed stage, but that’s a decent choice too.

    Has it been confirmed for other places in Europe? As far as I know it's only going to be available in Spain during a Sonic Mania event in an eSports bar.

    Out of nowhere. Some places in Europe got a press kit.

    Aaron wasn't kidding when he said they were doing another throwback commercial!
    Love that shade thrown at generic FPS's. And is that Aaron himself playing the customer?

    Fletch reacted to JezMM in Mania Adventures and Encore Mode are separate universes (not surprised anymore)   
    Just throwing it out there but maybe it's more of an "alternate telling of the story" thing that Aaron worded badly.  Like, both stories COULD be canon, but Mania Adventures adapted the story in a way that suits the non-interactive format better, whereas in-game, the story is simpler in order to lend itself to the gameplay (and revisiting all the stages etc).
    Like, let's pretend Sonic X was just a straight adaptation of the games, ignore everything the exclusive characters do (chris etc).
    In the show, Sonic Adventure 2's white jungle and green forest are represented by like, 10 second scenes of Sonic and Shadow running through a generic forest before meeting, because that's the jist of the entire scene narratively.  Watching a 5 minute animation of them zipping through an intricately designed platforming level would come off as bizarre in a non-interactive medium.  Even the Sonic CD intro wouldn't be a fun "level", it's just there to look cool and convey a feeling of what Sonic does.
    But neither the game nor TV show version of this scene clash with each other really.
    It's possible "decide for yourself what's canon" is Aaron implying this on just a much grander scale.  Mania Adventures is a loose adaptation of Encore mode (or even just "the aftermath of Forces for Classic Sonic") that changes a bunch of details to make for a more entertaining non-interactive Sonic experience.
    I hope, anyway.  In a time where Mania is one of few pieces of Sonic media that didn't clash with any previous canon particularly, it'd be kind of horrifyingly sad to have a re-release of that same game manage to put it in the same continuity snarl pit of every other recent game.

    Critics are here to judge if content is worth the asking price. They aren't here to pat developers on the back. There's plenty of your type around to handle that. 

    The new content is an individual transaction, so it makes sense to rate it individually. It's not just an update we're getting for free. It makes sense to judge DLC on it's own merits in terms of what it brings to the table. I'm glad that they're keeping it real because I know I can hold off on buying this for a while based on the impressions I'm getting.

    Fletch reacted to Tracker_TD in Sonic Mania Plus: Official Reveal (Coming July 17th) - NO SPOILERS   
    My only real issue with the IGN review was that the structure was somewhat confusing - as they dipped into features that are part of vanilla Mania for everyone as of the 17th. The writer’s now clarified that it is supposed to just cover the DLC though, and to that end I’d say a 7 is about what I expected. Still questionable as it goes into a Metacritic pool with reviews that for the most part seem to have reviewed it as a single package, but that’s down to the failings of Metacritic, not the reviewer. 
    Seeing them as “ungrateful” is a pretty dumb take for reasons Josh already said, but furthermore the writer triple-dipped on the original Mania. This isn’t some Sonic-hating bogeyman journalist that some people still somehow thinks exists - this is a review by a die-hard SEGA fan that just suffers from a slightly unclear structure. And even that’s debatable with the clarification out. 
    Anywho, Plus sounds about what I expected so I’m cool with it and excited to hop back in to check out Encore and how it’ll play with my muscle memory.

    Had to watch the subs for the 2 newest episodes. They were pretty nice, and I liked the moments with Deku's mom from End of the Beginning. Also,
