It's a preview. The actual comic features an issue-long race against Eggman and an appearance by Starlight Carnival at the end.

I really need to find a way to read this comic. I want to see Starlight Carnival in comic form.

S0L, after today's news about the limited Wii U voice chat, will you guys be supporting voice chat on that platform?

We don't support voice chat on WiiU for those reasons, one of the side effects of being a launch title basically. Does support it on PS3 and 360 though!

Hey Steve, now that we know Shadow is getting some new voice clips (unless the "damn" is recycled from his previous actor), are any of Sonic's voice clips new?

We asked Sonic Team for all the available English VO they have (post Colours) and have used it for the Sonic Team characters. So there is a mix of things used in recent games as well as things that haven't been used.

Nope, World Tour is offline only for Split-screen co-op. I think I answered that a page or so back too! That said, we do make some of the modes available via Custom Game to be played online.

That's disheartening! But not a big deal since the game is full of content to begin with, i'll just get my friends over for a Transformed marathon!

Aw, that sucks :( Lack of voice chat on the Wii version of the last game was a bother for me when playing with people on the SSMB. Was hoping that problem wouldn't return for the sequel when we have the console's successor now. Oh well, can't be helped. Thanks for your reply.

That's too bad about Wii U voice chat but never mind. Could barely hear anyone on the PS3 voice chat anyway when I did play lol. There's always skype.

Shame about the Wii U version (Not that I use the voice chat much with lovely randoms...). I have it preordered on Xbox but am on the fence with it. Still not sure if that'll be the one I end up with or not but whatever. Hopefully Alex Kidd is still around - one of the best things in the last one was beating some Americans with him when they didn't know who the hell he was.

Coincidentally I was just over by Sumo gathering supplies. Perhaps I should have Ninja'd in...

I have a question, sorry if it's been asked before.

Will we be able to customize the flying controls?

Inverted/non-inverted?

So if Eggman wins, he instantly claims ownership of every world in the universe? Well alright then,

Sounds like a fair deal if you ask me!

I honestly don't know what makes "crap" and "hell" any less offensive than damn.

I agree though, try not to make him look like an outrageous self-parody. (Unless you're going to go the whole way with it, but I'm probably alone in thinking that.)

Crap is offensive?

Crap is offensive?

'Crap' is a more offensive term than 'hell' or 'damn' to some people. To me, crap is just an unpleasant word that doesn't sound appropriate for a young audience. 'Crud' would be a slightly better alternative, or rather it would just be changed to 'this sucks/stinks'. This is the problem with stronger language. Culturally and on a smaller scale the impact of these words varies a lot. Remember Sonic Rush Adventure? It was originally rated PEGI 12 in Europe because the words 'knackered' and 'bugger' are seen as very offensive, sexual terms in the UK. For reference, ShTH was also PEGI 12+.

This is why I think it's actually really stupid that they're even using voice clips that say 'damn'. Totally unnecessary when it causes the game's age rating to go up. I know people don't really pay too much attention to them, but you'd think it was something that SEGA would want to avoid.

Is it really necessary to quote all the pictures?

About the last line of Tails: i feel sorry thinking about at least Big the Cat (and any other veteran that will be deconfirmed) crying depressed on his couch because he didn't checked the mail in time.

(Also, isn't "jerk" a no-no word?)

I'm pretty sure knackered isn't a sexual term, knackers perhaps. You generally hear people say they're knackered when they're worn out. Originally it would be related to a Knackers Yard, where you'd send old worn out animals...

Bugger on the other hand, pretty much is. But in this part of the UK, you'll here people tell you to 'Bugger off' or 'You stupid bugger!'.

Which is probably why it's PEGI 7 or ESRB E10+. It's not strictly down to the speech of course, there are courses which may frighten younger children, what with all the fire and zombies and things.

We're not exactly in super sweary GTA territory mind tongue.png

Aaaaand point proven.

I've always known 'knackered' to mean exhausted after sex, and bugger just to be a very unsavoury word. 'Bugger off' is every day language, but it's something you would normally avoid saying because it bothers some people. Of course I know the actual meanings, but that's not necessarily the context in which they are most often used.

Even if the rating isn't strictly down to speech, it's one of the factors and has to be declared on the boxart, doesn't it? It just seems really weird that you wouldn't pick an alternative to avert that.

Team Sonic

Finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th with local friends in a 10 player Race

Pff, welp. Won't be getting this one. I don't have 3 others who are gonna wanna play this game on my PC. 2 players would be fine, but this wasn't going to be a party game for me.

Forever alone, yes yes.
