  1. Sonic Forces OST - Aqua Road

    I like it. The vocals are really nice. Can't think of much else to say, but this is probably one of the better tracks I've heard for this game so far.
  2. Sonic 2 HD

    Just played though the new demo and wow, I'm pretty impressed. The presentation is amazing; the graphics, animation and music are all just wonderful. Everything seemed pretty spon-on to me as far as gameplay goes. There were minor things like the camera acting a little weird when going incredibly fast in Chemical Plant, or bouncing off of badniks or monitors at times not feeling exactly like the original, but nothing that prevented this from being an awesome experience. I didn't encounter anything that I would consider a "bug", but my only true complaint would be that the Chemical Plant boss seemed pretty... jittery, compared to the original. I had two deaths just due to how erratically he was moving back and forth. Other than that one thing though, this was a joy to play through. I can't wait to see more as this progresses further.
  3. New Sonic Forces Zone revealed: Casino Forest

    This is probably the best thing I've seen regarding Sonic Forces so far. It's actually a pretty creative and interesting take on the casino trope. I still don't know how I feel about Sonic Forces, but seeing stuff like this definitely helps.
  4. Rate Sonic Mania's Bosses

    Here are my thoughts on the Sonic Mania bosses. I'll just repeat what I said about the Metal Sonic boss and say that I seem to like that one a lot more than most others. It's one of my favorite parts of the game. I'll accept being in the minority for that one.
  5. Sonic Forces Demo Playable at PAX West

    Well that's cool. I'll be there at PAX West, so I'll likely try it out and try to keep an open mind when playing it. With that said though, I've been playing so much Sonic Mania lately that I can easily see myself being unimpressed with what I play in Sonic Forces.
  6. Sonic Forces: Theme of Metal Sonic (US Stardust Speedway)

    I like it. I think the Generations mix of this song is still better, but, this isn't bad. I'd probably go as far as to say that it's my favorite Forces song that's been revealed so far, although, the bar has been set pretty low for that, so that's not saying a whole lot.
  7. Oh man. I feel for you PC-only people; this has really got to suck. I have this pre-ordered for both PC and PS4, so I'll still be able to play it on launch, but I would otherwise not be a very happy camper. On the bright side though, if there is something wrong with the PC version, then I'm glad they're taking the extra time to fix it at least. I know a lot of games have been released in the past across consoles and PC where the PC version doesn't run as well as it should, so I'm glad this won't be one of them.
  8. Just got the Cook & Becker 25th Anniversary Sonic art book. This thing is amazing to look at in person. The pictures don't do it justice.

  9. Sonic Mania SPOILERS/Impressions Thread

    Aww yeahhh! I know a lot of people have been trying to avoid spoilers, and I totally respect them for that, but I've been waiting for this! I badly want to see more zones and hear more music. It won't ruin my excitement for the game when it does release either; I'm still going to happily play through it all, and have a blast doing so. Bring on the spoilers!
  10. Not sure if this has been posted yet, but GameSpot has a video showing a bit of extra footage, including ramps in the Special Stages.
  11. This all looks so cool! Holy crap! I'm glad to see that these Special Stages look enjoyable to play. I was worried about this being an auto-run at first, because I don't really like any of the other auto-running Special Stages (especially CD's). And those bonus stages, wow! Wasn't expecting that. I wonder what you get for clearing those...
  12. The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!

    Stardust Speedway sounds different from what I was expecting, but I really like it! I'm wondering if Act 2 will be a bit more fast-paced, and maybe (wishful thinking) have some of the distorted vocal sounds from the Bad Future variant. Either way though, this is some good stuff.
  13. I would be very pleased if this were true. Also, yeah, those icons look awesome. They definitely look like they could be for achievements, or possibly for a competition mode or something.
  14. Sounds pretty likely to me. That pretty much falls in line with the same timeframe as all of the other major Sonic Team console releases since 2006. Also, if I remember correctly, almost all of the recent Sonic Team games (going back to Unleashed I think) have been slightly below the standard “AAA game” price ($50 USD instead of $60), so that shouldn’t be surprising either. And yeah, there is definitely going to be some tough competition with this, so it’s hard to predict what sales are going to be like.
