  1. PC version of Mania delayed till August 29th...

    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.
  2. 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.

  3. Sonic Mania SPOILERS 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Hmm, yeah that sketch could possibly mean that Marble Garden is in Mania, but it's hard to say for sure. Just like the running-down pillars from that zone being used in Stardust Speedway, this could just be a gimmick that is used elsewhere. Although, the squares drawn inside kind of implicate that it's for a blocky, rock-like pattern, and that's what's making me wonder...
  10. The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!

    I love this new track so much! It's so catchy and fits perfectly for the style of the game. And yeah, it sounds very Jet Set Radio-esque, which is very awesome.
  11. The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!

    Yeah, that would definitely be a good way of doing it without spoiling anything, but still giving us a little something while we wait for the launch. I would love to hear clean versions of the boss music, Chemical Plant Zone, and/or Flying Battery Zone without any sound effects. What I would really love though, would be to hear what Stardust Speedway sounds like. I mean, I know we'll find out soon enough, but that's what I personally would want them to put next most of all.
  12. The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!

    So, the official Sonic YouTube just uploaded Studiopolis Act 1. It's the same new version that we've already heard. However, if you read the description: I'm very much looking forward to getting more full versions of Mania songs to listen to! I wonder what we'll be getting next...
  13. The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!

    Yeah, I wouldn't look into that idea of the Genesis style soundtrack too much, as neat as that would be. As far as I'm concerned though, the soundtrack is already amazing as it is. It's a pretty awesome remix though.
  14. Hmm, apparently Julien-K is going to be playing in my city tonight. Their music isn't really my style, but I kind of want to go just for Sonic Heroes nostalgia.
