  1. Looks like we won't be getting any spoilers for now. But someone else will likely get it before long. Anyone still worried about spoilers should probably leave now.
  2. I'm pretty sure that only works in the corners. Once you go to the corners and stand still, he shouldn't be able to hit you. For reference, I was right under the three rings when I did it, but I'm not sure if that is a requirement or not.
  3. Don't worry so much about that guys. Both the Avatar and Classic Sonic have idle animations, so this is clearly just a case of the demo being unfinished.
  4. There are quite a few alternate paths in the demo. Unfortunately the demo ends before you can explore any of them. What a shame.

      Why they only let you play the first part of this level is baffling to me since the first bit is very boring.

  5. I didn't understand what this tweet meant before, but I think I understand it now.

      He's probably saying that in relation to the new demo that released for Japan only.

  6. I'm not sure if this has been posted yet, but this account has been translating the tweets and other information accurately. This twitter account is a great resource, so we can always look back to it if there is a tweet where we can't understand the meaning.
  7. I wouldn't be so sure of that. The final zones of Mania are chock full of indications that the Ruby can manipulate time. For instance, in Titanic Monarch Zone after you jump into the portal to face Eggman, the timer resets back to zero and is completely stopped. The timer does not move again until Eggman activates the Phantom Ruby in a flash of light. Also, during Egg Reverie Zone, the timer is constantly displaying random numbers without rhyme or reason. I think that the Phantom Ruby can affect time as well as space. Which makes sense, as in reality space and time are not two different things but rather one and the same. But I digress.
  8. People need to realize that those praising the game for some aspects aren't excusing it of any flaws. Like come on, it seems like every positive post here is met with "but this other part is shit though". We weren't talking about that other part were we? And I am really laughing at the people saying that anyone hyped for the game is "falling for marketing". So when a person likes the game based on what he has been shown, that's falling for marketing, but when someone dislikes the game based on what he has been shown that is a fully legitimate and valid critique? Come on now.
  9. OK, I get what you are saying. Yeah, if that were the case then the future would already be messed up. It wouldn't be peaceful and then suddenly turn into a dystopia. However, in time travel there is often a common plot device where it takes some time for changes to the past to "catch up" with the present. Back to the Future is a very good example of this. It's not really something that makes logical sense, but it serves a narrative well. If we consider this to be true, then there was a buffer period between when Silver got back and when the world turned into a dystopia. Silver likely enjoys those periods, as he even says in Colors that in the future he comes from "the sky is blue and everyone has a smile". So that's why he stays in the future. That's true. But again, plot points can serve to explain it. There is a common plot point in time travel stories that certain things are meant to happen and that there is no way to prevent them from happening. Usually this rule exists to prevent time travel stories form being riddled with paradoxes. If you travel back in time, even if you try to kill your parents or prevent them from meeting, you won't be able to because you being born was meant to happen. An easy way out of any paradox. We could apply this rule to Silver as well. No matter what happens to the timeline, his birth is a fact that cannot be changed. That's the thing though. Caring about narratives and ensuring every little thing makes logical sense is different. Back to the Future's time travel rules really make no sense when you stop to think about it. However, it all serves to create an exciting narrative. So long as you are not making a mystery story, a few inconsistencies are fine as long as the narrative itself is exciting. I wouldn't want any author to limit their creativity or dive into a ton of exposition just to make sure every single little thing is logical.
  10. It does make sense if you consider the ability to alter time. If you perform actions in the present normally, then obviously the future wouldn't change, because it is progressing normally towards it's intended conclusion. However, if you alter time itself, which we already know that the Phantom Ruby can do, then the course of history would change. So this would obviously affect the future and cause it to become different than it was before. The real puzzling question would be why Silver is even aware of the previous history if time was rewritten. Shouldn't his memories be rewritten as well? But that's the problems you run into when you try to write about an impossible phenomenon like time travel. The best thing to do is ignore stuff like that unless the narrative is really dependent on every detail making logical sense.
  11. I get what you mean. However, that logic only works under the assumption that this is an isolated story, when that is not the case at all. When you have a story that ties into other stories already (for instance, tying into Adventure, Mania, etc.), then using another story to explain the connections isn't shitty, it's smart. As for everybody being an illusion, I'm not sure exactly. They is something I've noticed in this comic, and that is the fact that the glitchy effect doesn't appear once on Chaos, despite it presumably being an illusion. However, it does appear on Chaos and Metal Sonic in Forces. That makes me think that there is some other part of this that we don't know about. For instance, there might be some difference between the powers of the Phantom Ruby and the Phantom Ruby Prototype. It's definitely an interesting thing to think about.
  12. I'm pretty sure it will be an equal amount of stages for each gameplay style. So a Classic stage, a Modern stage, an Avatar stage, and a Tag Team stage for every zone. We've seen Modern Green Hill in the story trailer, Classic Green Hill, Avatar Green Hill (Guardian Rock), and Tag Team Green Hill. We also see Modern Sonic in Casino Forest in the "Enter Infinite" trailer, and they talk about needing a shuttle to catch up to Sonic in the Space Port gameplay. So I wouldn't worry about stage distribution, because it seems like they are trying to make it pretty even.
  13. It's unusual for a Sonic game to have an easy mode. A lot of Sonic games do include hard modes, but the only one I can remember off the top of my head with an easy mode is Sonic Jam. This could mean that the game is harder than most ordinary Sonic games, but that seems a bit hard to believe given what we we've been shown so far. I just hope that it also has a hard difficulty as well, because that would add significant replay value.
  14. So it appears that a problem that we've noticed in the Classic Sonic gameplay has been fixed. Old IGN footage New Gamespot footage He goes faster downhill now, and rolls off the incline in the proper way. It looks like a 100 ring limit is in place as well (only on Easy Mode apparently). I wonder what other things they changed?
  15. Why did IGN use this for the thumbnail? Anyway, this is their footage. Not much new stuff is shown.
  16. OK, honestly I don't get this discussion at all. So everyone is saying that Infinite is bad because he has a bunch of "cool" traits. By that logic you all should hate Sonic lol. No, but I know that the real reason is the fact that the "cool" traits have not been justified. But you do realize that again, it will most likely be justified when the game comes out. Infinite's mysterious nature has been emphasized in trailers, so of course they will solve that mystery in game. People are also laughing at how edgy and ridiculous he is, but honestly? Infinite just looks like a standard shonen villain to me. I'm pretty sure Infinite even takes this exact pose lol. But Frieza is still far more edgy than Infinite, considering he committed genocide against an entire race, and has likely done that multiple times over. What will really show if Infinite is a good character or not is how shallow he is. If he's just a generic evil guy with no motivations, no goals, no dreams, and no hopes, then he'll be really bad. However, I don't think that will be the case, because his lyrics suggest that he does have goals and hopes, and that is what he is pursuing by becoming Infinite. If that show that in a cool way, I think Infinite has the potential to be a great character.
  17. Of course there is a lack of context to Infinite's sword. It was revealed unofficially by an half-complete sketch of a comic book cover. You are basically demanding that we be given context on something that was not even supposed to be shown yet in the first place. You are presuming there is no reason for Infinite to use a sword because you haven't been given a reason, but that is illogical. Like for instance, you said that it would make sense for a literal knight to use a sword. What if Infinite was a knight? That would justify it right? We don't know the reason he has it, so saying there is no justification is jumping the gun.
  18. So uh, how are the existing characters taking a backseat again? Shadow is playable for the first time in over a decade, Knuckles is the leader of the resistance, Espio and Silver are described as hero figures, Tails looks to be the main partner of Classic Sonic, and Eggman looks to have a huge role given the fact that he took over the world. What else could you want honestly?
  19. According to the description there is a hidden area in the mystic jungle where Casino Forest is. While the forest is burning, the rookie finds these hidden waterways that he must navigate to reach the depths of the jungle.
  20. That's my best guess at the lyrics. I've listened to it a couple times and that's what I got. Some words are hard to make out, but I feel I got most of it.
  21. So this is actually a very interesting theory that I think has some weight. If you look at Infinite's theme, a lot of it makes sense under the assumption that was is a warrior of some kind. What really stands out here is the first lyric. The thing I instantly thought of was that there was some grand war, and that Infinite was the only one to survive it. He had some sort of important cause he was fighting for, and he's the last one standing. The third and fourth lyrics are also very interesting. It suggest that whatever he got the scar from was more powerful than the Avatar/Sonic. Nearly everything here is interesting. The first lyric seems to suggest familiarity with either Sonic or the Avatar. There is are very few ways to make sense of this. The first thing I thought of was that Infinite somehow remembers the events of Mania. As he has the Phantom Ruby Prototype as part of him, he somehow inherited memories of Sonic Mania from that, and so he is referring to the battle with Sonic in Mania. The second is that the Avatar and Infinite remember each other. I think this is the more likely theory. If that is the case, then this song is addressing the Avatar, not Sonic. That would also make sense, given that Fist Bump is a song sung by Sonic to the Avatar, Infinite's theme being sung from him to the Avatar is a logical step. The second lyric is pretty simple. Infinite wants his reach to extend so far that everyone knows his name, and he won't stop fighting until then. The third lyric is probably about the Phantom Ruby. He sees it as his, so he will take it (maybe even take it into himself) and start Eggman's war. Perhaps the reason he joined Eggman in the first place was for the Phantom Ruby? I think the first two lines definitely makes sense under the assumption that he is speaking to the Avatar. The Avatar's home is likely destroyed and he has nothing left, and so he is fearful and at his lowest point as Infinite is rising in power. The next two lyrics seem to suggest the Infinite has given up his old life and identity in pursuit of something that he "finds in the ashes" and which causes the Avatar to "lose in the fire". Again, I think that this something is the Phantom Ruby. The next lyric again hammers the point that Infinite has some sort of duty (perhaps as a warrior) and that he is the only one that can carry it on. The illusion thing is of course related to the Phantom Ruby, but we don't know in exactly what way yet. The last three lyrics suggest that Infinite is being subject to pain, but he bears through it because that's what it takes for his power. So this suggests a couple things. Apparently the Avatar lives a lie, but Infinite sees the truth. He says he has the power and that he'll show the Avatar what it's all about. So Infinite's power is in some way related to a "truth" that only he can see. My theory is he willingly gives up who he was before in order to obtain the Phantom Ruby's power and see its "truth" (or to fulfill his cause). I think that in order to do this, he sides with Eggman out of his own free will. He knew the Avatar before, but the two broke off their relationship a long time ago, perhaps due to a disagreement. Maybe the Avatar didn't want Infinite to be a warrior, and that was what caused them to separate. But that's just my own pet theory based on the lyrics. If what I'm saying is true, then it could be pretty interesting, but the lyrics are pretty vague so I could have gotten a ton of shit wrong.
  22. Yeah, I am pretty sure that's true. These are most likely something that ABT intentionally left behind while working on the other covers. But what makes it mysterious is the content of the covers. A lot of this stuff are things you expect to see in the game itself. Like for instance, Infinite's face, Knuckles and Silver fighting Chaos, Shadow and Omega fighting Infinite, Eggman with the Phantom Ruby, etc. It seems strange to address this stuff in a comic and not in a game, especially since you'd expect them to show Shadow and Omega fighting Infinite in the DLC. Hell, the files even have dlc in the name. I just find it strange is all.
  23. What's funny is that I think some of these ARE for the DLC. Two of them were titled "shadowdlclines" and "shadowdlclayout". It's a real mystery what these are for and why they are here.
  24. Holy shit, I just found a bombshell. There are a shitton of hidden images in the cover of this comic!
