Well, this is an odd one. SEGA are having a little event on Saturday to celebrate Lost World's PC release next week.

The first 50 attendees through the door will get a SEGA goody bag featuring the Sonic Hat as seen in the SEGA Central videos. Bonus rings are awarded for fancy dress! Themed refreshments will be provided!

I don't think anybody was expecting anything like this. Still, sounds like it'll be a good time if you can get along to it.

What does everybody make of this?

EDIT: Just noticed the homepage already has this covered. Figured it merited a topic of its own but the mods can have the final word.

I find this odd, why so much a big deal over a port of a new-ish game?

 

Technically the first mainstream Sonic game since 2012 to be released outside of Nintendo device territory. 

You can bet there are  folks chomping at the bit to play this one to make up for the wait of whatever the next game will be. 

Bit of an are added bonus considering the wonders of PC modding in store.

Of course it's in London.

Why would it ever be something I can attend? =(

I'd keep up hope that SEGA America would do something similar (they did do a few smaller events like the Colors skating and Sonic Generations skating events), but they seem a bit more profit-minded when it comes to community things.

 

On the plus side, this just means more time to save money for next year's Sonic Boom event!

I find it kinda funny that they're hosting a party for a game that's essentially already been out for 2 years. Not that I'm saying it's a bad thing.

Imagine if this was done for every re-release of a Sonic game. There'd be Sonic 1 and Sonic 2 parties left right & center.

Urm yeah... I'll just be checking mainly how well it runs. Does it do anything stupid?  How are the controls since there's no touch pad now etc etc.

I'm not going to be playing with the options. Mainly because this will almost certainly be a demo build and most options/customisation will likely be restricted if indeed have any public access at all.
