So how many edgy faggot game journos are going to be saying that Sonic Mania sucks and that Sonic was never good when it drops tonight?

I don't think it'll be because Sega is paying them enough (unless Sonic Team is desperate to save their hide and went behind Sega's back to pay some off- They've said depending on what does better will affect how the series continues), but because they don't want the autistic nuclear dump fire of the Sonic fanbase giving them shit.

Though by that logic, both forces and Mania will get praise and minimum scores of 7.

I'm hoping the PC delay isn't for Denuvo. It always causes problems, and could be the only thing to shoot Mania in the foot (assuming it's well made).

Joshua Robinson

I am literally amazed at how bad most of the players on youtube videos of the game actually are. Even if they've never played a sonic game before, there is simply no excusing not being able to work out gameplay mechanics with obvious visual cues - that most of us managed to work out easily at the age of 5 or whatever. Seeing players on actual gaming channels fail to understand basic tropes that are pretty much ubiquitous in gaming really does make one think.

Also, the lazy stupidity of these retards in failing to understand what made the classics great (revolutionary) games is extremely galling - particularly when we now have documentary proof that they simply can't get to grips with the physics (which are extremely intuitive). Gaming """""jounalism'"""" truly is cancerous, and I can think of no finer exhibit than the collective autism regarding classic sonic.

NO BULLY

I'm hearing a good number of the reviews right now are rating it as low as 6 on the classic 7-10 scale of quality because they literally cannot understand how 2D sonic works. They can't even comprehend how the damage system works. Constantly either saying "SONIC WAS NEVER GOOD THIS IS SHIT WHY DID I BUY IT" to "HOW DO I GO FAST I KEEP LOSING RINGS THIS IS SHIT"

A good chunk of the reviewers just didn't know how to play the game. At all. On the most basic level they could not play it. Worst of all they lack the determination and learning speed of a child so they just kinda give up and call it shit rather than realizing they suck or it's just not for them.

Like I said, it can't be refunded, it's a third party key. Not even from a shady russian site operating on stolen credit cards, my money did go to Sega. I got carried away by what should have been a perfect release and forgot exactly why I stopped buying games in the first place. It's fine though, I needed the reminder this industry deserves to rot and it was just a $20 game.

Kevin Harris

You do to play it well tbf. Admittedly you have to be an actual retard to play like that jew. Assuming it was his leak of lava reef I was watching - he couldn't work out press a switch to open a certain type of door. When he finally did work it out, he knew what to do for the second of these doors - but by the time he came to third one, he's apparently forgotten this little lesson, and tried to spin dash through it. Literally a fucking spastic. A spastic is leaking this much hyped game. Feel quite bitter about that tbh.

Sanic 1 is indeed hard hence why like many games of its era it demands you to git gud. Sanic 2 is only hard at the special stages (fucking Tails and his delayed following animation) and the final boss that gives you no rings.

Actually, I wish Sega would go under for ruining this. But yeah, I do hope this one 2D Sonic fails. Stealth and Taxman never stood a chance, Iizuka planned this as nothing but Forces bait for Classicfags. If they know any better, they'll go their own way after this.

You must not be familiar with Sonic Team to believe they actually care about Classic fans. You've been duped. Welcome to the ride, newfriends.

Here's what actually happened. The community manager calls a special announcement stream right after the fat dumb kike streams the game 5 days away from release, the announcement stream begins the next morning but Aaron is stuck in an emergency meeting for 30 minutes or so, he shows up to drop the bomb that they realized only 4 days away from launch that the game is broken and requires optimization while also shitting on our faces by offering a fucking rom everyone owns on Steam, right after said stream the lead developer drops a cryptic tweet about DRMing DNA (twitter.com/CFWhitehead/status/896047063024025602), people panic all the way up to Retro, Classicfags' hive where Taxman would often give updates and clues about the game, but Retro's defense force quickly rationalize this as Taxman's commenting news even though he hasn't given any context in Twitter whatsoever. That was 3 days ago and Taxman is still silent. So here we are, 4 new zones, a game built to be a prequel to Forces and a delay 4 days away from launch to add Denuvo.

But anyway, sorry for not fitting the power bottom stereotype of videogame consumers.

I don't think Sonic Team cares about sonic, period, which is why the past few years it's been mostly third party devs picking up the slack while they fuck around with shitty mobile cash grabs and puyo pop tetris.

You preordered the game, on fucking steam at that, if anything you've taken it in the ass hard than most here.

Ryan Diaz

Aside from the PC delay, which you're right about being bullshit, you're just whining that the game isn't pandering to you exactly how you wanted it to.

Jordan Perry
Jordan Perry

That's true, but Iizuka (or was it Yuji?) was supervisioning over Mania's development to make sure the game won't be completely different from Sonic's games. Not only that, Iizuka is the one who came up with the very concept idea of Sonic Mania.

Brayden Barnes
Brayden Barnes

He's listed as "Supervisor" in the credits. Not producer or director, so no, that doesn't count for anything.

Ian Green

The people who care are "the haters", female logic is something else.

You preordered the game, on fucking steam at that, if anything you've taken it in the ass hard than most here.
They fucked me over, true, but it was my first purchase in 3 years and a discounted 20 bucks game. I could have pre-ordered it, opted not to refund while being automatically entitled to it and trying to defend what I'm now fully aware to be a shitshow, now that would be the ultimate ass drilling.

I know most of the game. I know the thought process behind it. I know the people who produced it. I know the struggle of the people who worked on it. This isn't about failing to meet expectations but getting cheated out of a game that stands on its own developed by people who threw away the little dignity they had as Sonic autists to follow their dreams.

Yuji had nothing to do with Mania.

Again, "oversaw" doesn't tell us anything about how involved he was. Certainly not to the degree was saying. And certainly not after the reviews are out and generally favorable, when you take into account how shitty most reviewers are at games.

Later, on the official Sonic Twitch stream, Iizuka stated that Sonic Mania will have more classic levels than new levels

So what, there'll be 6 new levels at best? That's pretty shit.

Owen Sullivan

Apparently the first Act of each classic stage has the original first Act from its first appearance as a "base" and then it's built off of/modified from that, while Act 2 of each is completely new.

Cameron Young
Cameron Young

You're complaining that a tiny portion of the game ties into Forces, despite everything else in the game standing on its own, and that there are too few original stages, despite the fact we were told early one there would be more remixed stages than completely new ones. The gameplay is still good, the level design is good, the bosses are good, the music is good, it's pretty long of a Genesis-styled game, and there's a ton of extra content. You're just complaining that the game isn't exactly what you wanted, acting as if SEGA owes classicfags something.

I know most of the game. I know the thought process behind it. I know the people who produced it. I know the struggle of the people who worked on it.
Sure you do. If you knew that much about the game, you wouldn't have preordered it in the first place.

Again, "oversaw" doesn't tell us anything about how involved he was.
I'm trying to find the exact interview, in the meantime have this.

GC: Is Mania also part of Sega’s implied plan to bring back some of their older franchises? Or is this something separate from that? It seems like a concept that could be applied to many older titles.

TI: It’s a completely different approach, it’s designed to bring back old fans but not necessarily an old game. Mania originally came from the 25th anniversary plans. I wanted to bring back the core fans from a long time ago, and also Sonic fans that haven’t played recently, and I wanted to give an opportunity for them to play pixelated 2D Sonic titles. And to also get them interested in Forces.

metro.co.uk/2017/07/04/sonic-mania-and-sonic-forces-hands-on-preview-and-interview-the-focus-is-on-old-school-fans-6753357/

Not even, 4 zones.

No shit I didn't know most of the game back then. It did look great, the details revealed were misleading and the 5 hard-boiled heavies implied at least 5 zones.

The whole plot of the game is a tiny portion? Okay. I'm sure Iizuka demanding most zones to be recycled was also a tiny portion and had nothing to do with Forces bait.

acting as if SEGA owes classicfags
But they do. They went out of their way to preserve a game through reverse engineering. Taxman went to them for the remakes, even.

Not helping your case.

I would rather just have all the new stages with a cheaper price tag and not have to play through stages I've been through a number of times before, modified or not. I've still got my Megadrive, so the remastered stuff doesn't really appeal to me.

William Reyes
William Reyes

The ending isn't the whole plot.

I'm sure Iizuka demanding most zones to be recycled was also a tiny portion and had nothing to do with Forces bait.
Actually, Taxman's original idea for Mania was just a collection of his ports of the classic games plus a short original game. Iizuka was the guy who said to make it one big new game with remixed classic stages and some original ones. You would just be getting the games you already had, plus a small new game that would be about the size of Sonic 4 ep I, if it weren't for Iizuka.

Gavin Reed
Gavin Reed

Taxman IS one of the the fans that helped reverse engineered the games. Heck he even made a proof of concept prototype of the Sonic CD mobile version. It's what got him hired.

Kayden Cruz
Kayden Cruz

Yeah, I think that's fair. I'm undecided on it, since I never played through all of the original Sonics.

Yeah, that's… that's what a Supervisor does. It's an ambiguous title and, again, still doesn't say jack or shit combined about what amount of effect he had on it. My initial point is that saying, "oh you don't KNOW what Sonic Team does, you must be new!" is retarded when talking about a game where one guy from Sonic Team was involved to an ambiguous degree.

Christopher Bailey
Christopher Bailey

The ending isn't the whole plot.
Alright. What about the intro, the Infinity rock thing and its level transitions?

You would just be getting the games you already had, plus a small new game that would be about the size of Sonic 4 ep I, if it weren't for Iizuka.
Sounds good to me. I get the damn 1 and 2 remakes on a platform with real, physical, wired controls at last and Mania ends up announced as what it truly is.

Yeah. Where did I imply otherwise?

Julian Sanders

So you're happier with two games you could already play with barely any extra features a rom hack hasn't already added, and a short new game that probably doesn't have much content, instead of a big new game with all the new zones the short original game would have had, new level design added in to remixed stages, more blue spheres courses, a ton of unlockables, and new remixes of classic tunes?

Dude, you are way too hung up on this whole Forces tie-in crap. I know the term has a stigma here on Holla Forums, but you are seriously being an entitled brat, angry that someone has dared taint your pure classic games with that abominable modern games.

Noah Fisher
Noah Fisher

I'm undecided as well. I was more excited for Generations but even then that was more of a "oh perhaps I may enjoy that game at some point" rather than really wanting to play it.

SEGA are just playing the nostalgia card again, which seems to be their marketing strategy, especially with Sonic. At least it uses the same/similar physics to the originals. I'm probably going to wait until it goes on sale if I even buy it.

They use the exact same sound effect as Infinite and bend time, reality, dimension or whatever it is. Forces is about dimension bending/hopping.
Which have nothing to do with Forces?
See above.

So you're happier with two games you could already play with barely any extra features a rom hack hasn't already added
You point me to a rom hack that had a Hidden Palace Zone even half as good, touched up level design for Tails and Knuckles, Tails and Knuckles and tons of fixes and quality of life improvements. Taxman's remakes are criminally underrated.

new level design added in to remixed stages
They really aren't that different from the originals. The lack of proper transitions for most of them, either by Forces wanking or completely missing a transition, highlight their filler nature.

a ton of unlockables
What unlockables? Instashield?

and new remixes of classic tunes?
Well, you got me there. Though Tee has been awfully conservative in some of his tracks.

that someone has dared taint your pure classic games with that abominable modern games.
I don't inherently hate Modern Sonic. I found Generations pretty good even and I'm severely disappointed Forces has thrown away its refinement of the boost formula in favor of reverting to Colors.

Jim Sterling gave it a 9.5.
I'm currently listening to some total cunt (who's apparently such a fan he has a tattoo of sonic) explain how the game needs more hand-holding for young people. It's a fucking 2d platformer. Also he's described the old zones as having 'subtle' changes. I've seen enough to know that they've added a bunch of gimmicks and basically completely changed the layouts of the second acts. Fucking normalfags, I swear to christ.

If you don't agree with my opinion, then you are X
Hey, fuck you. I can say whatever the fuck I want and you're gonna take it, you bitch. Don't cry about a difference of opinion, unless said opinion is founded upon faulty reasoning or weak premises. Even then, because opinions are cheap and anyone can have them, you shouldn't put so much stock into what people say about something. We all already know the media is shit, so just ignore it.
if you ignore it, it'll go away
That's not what I'm saying, either. I'm not telling you that you should ignore it in the sense that you shouldn't pay attention to what Kotaku or IGN or whoever is saying, I'm saying you should ignore it in the sense that it's not worth getting worked up about.

Question: If you like something, and someone says something about the thing that you like, is their assessment going to ruin your experience with the thing that you like? If so, then you're one of those faggots that looks for validation through other people's agreement, and that is gay.

Even that game isn't hard, you can beat it in a single setting with no deaths after beating it maybe 2-3 times. Memorizing Sonic levels is also really easy as well.

this quote is from shitaku:
" Sonic’s early days stressed his supposedly edgy attitude and speed, traits meant to differentiate him from the slower, more deliberate Mario. But it was never really about attitude or speed. Sonic Mania clearly articulates Sonic’s true appeal: Sonic is pure joy, a spinning ball of fun blazing a trail towards the next adventure. "

Charles Ortiz

no, i think hipsters just forgot the difference between edgy and cool

Camden Parker
Camden Parker

"Edgy" is derived from going past the boundaries of what is acceptable or normal, and going up to the "edge" of it. Most edgy things are usually violent and dark because they're pushing the edge of common decency (and in most cases, decent writing). So in the age of Sonic's debut, he was pretty edgy, even if just another example of the rebellious 2kool4skool 90s kid cartoon character with skateboard and sunglasses.

That's why when times changed and Sonic became a normal character who wasn't all that special in his lackadaisical attitude, they had to make an even edgier hedgehog in Shadow.

Joshua Gutierrez
Joshua Gutierrez

Oliver King
Oliver King

words can only ever have one meaning and can only be used in one context ever
"edgy" can mean a lot more than just what an angsty teenager thinks is badass. From a advertising perspective, "edgy" can mean creatively challenging in a market, and within the realm of 90's platformers, having a cool and hip character for your game was edgy.

Michael Ortiz
Michael Ortiz

but sonic isn't that

Alexander White

he cares about his friends and loves his family
Right, because that's definitely apparent in the first game.

Asher Baker
Asher Baker

That's true. Sonic isn't really edgy unless you're a five year old and have no frame of reference. An edgy game character would be someone like Master Chief.

in the age of sonic's debut
bullshit, Mortal Combat was only a year later. Sonic was just cool, not edgy.

Julian Morris
Julian Morris

What defines "edgy" is all contextual. Sonic was edgy only in his context of kid-friendly platforming video games. Basically what said.

Mortal Kombat wasn't a game for kids (intentionally) and Sonic wasn't competing with it.

Jonathan Turner
Jonathan Turner

Sonic was never good

Parker Thomas
Parker Thomas

From the manual for Sonic 1
"Crush Dr. Robotnik!

Dr. Ivo Robotnik, the mad scientist, is snatching innocent animals and turning them into evil robots! Only one tough dude can put an end to the demented scientist's fiendish scheme. It's Sonic, the real cool hedgehog with the spiked haircut and power sneakers that give him super speed.

Help Sonic fight hordes of metal maniacs and do the loop with the Super Sonic Spin Attack. Speed down twisting tunnels and swing over dangerous booby traps. Leap across lava pits and dodge burning rocks. Then splash through the chilling waters in an underground cavern. And if you're lucky, you can warp to the secret zone where you spin around in a floating maze! Your greatest challenge lurks in a secret lab where you come face to face with Dr. Robotnik himself!

Spin through space, loop 'til you're dizzy, save the animals and become the super hero. Be Sonic! Be atomic!"

Jaxon Gray
Jaxon Gray

I think what you're seeing there is people not playing the games on the original hardware.
They're playing through emulators and probably have never even touched an actual genesis.
Why does that matter?
Input lag and other things related to the speed and flow of the game.

Nolan Cooper
Nolan Cooper

power sneakers that give him super speed.

Why didn't this come back in Generations?

Anyway you're just repeating the same thing over and over without actually listening. Once upon a time, The Fonz was edgy. Is he edgy today? No. Was he back then? Yes. Because the context changed.

Jackson Bailey
Jackson Bailey

No, I'm saying the focus was always that he's a good guy first and a cool guy second. That's not true with characters like Shadow.
That makes Sonic cool, and not edgy.

Jayden Morris
Jayden Morris

They aren't exclusive qualities. Lots of early examples of "edge," especially kid-friendly ones, were the radical cool kids who didn't follow the rules because they wanted to find their own way in life maaaan. You're using today's definition of "edgy" where it doesn't properly apply. Being the cool kid was edgy back then. Or at least kids thought it was, compared to Mario, Kirby, Pac-Man, Mega Man, etc.

Also Shadow is a good guy now and he's still pretty edgy. His best friend is a killer robot.

Luis Barnes
Luis Barnes

Sonic was edgy only in his context of kid-friendly
platforming video games
That's like saying Gran Turismo is edgy in the context of simulation racing games.

sonic wasn't competing with it
But yet, it was. All video games are competing with one another, how much time do you think normal people have to play games?

well he was edgy by comparison
What, was Metroid not edgy?
Was Castlevania not edgy?
The market before the 90's was marketed towards children.

Joseph Richardson
Joseph Richardson

Shadow is cool first and good second. That's the difference. You're basically saying Link is edgy because he has eccentric tendencies and a love for adventure and beating bad guys.

Landon Martin
Landon Martin

But yet, it was. All video games are competing with one another, how much time do you think normal people have to play games?
So Kirby and Punch-Out directly compete with Call of Duty and Mortal Kombat, got it.

What, was Metroid not edgy?
No.

Was Castlevania not edgy?
No.

Kayden Gray
Kayden Gray

Yeah, totally mobile games don't compete whatsoever with console games and there is TOTALLY not any money being taken away from console gaming.

Also, obviously the sales of adult oriented systems have not cut whatsoever into the domination of Nintendo, despite Nintendo losing the 5th and 6th generations of consoles. Nothing to do with that though, right?
Jesus christ open a goddamn book once in a while before you start acting like you a damn thing about the entertainment industry.

Also:
castlevania not edgy
metroid not edgy
That makes total sense, obviously Sonic was more edgy because of that skateboard!

Cameron Cook

I'm not even trying to argue that Sonic is an edgy character, especially by today's standards. I'm just saying that Kotaku's use of the word "edgy" is correct, even if a little overstated.

Copied from the wiki:
Takashi Iizuka has stated that the Super Emeralds were added to Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles after the game was split in half, serving as lock-on bonuses to enrich the experience for players who had already collected the Chaos Emeralds. He also indicated that the Super Emeralds (and other similar collectibles) will not return to the series anytime soon, as the number of Emeralds was made consistent as of Sonic Adventure.

So either the super emerald altars are just a throwback, or they said "fuck it" and added them anyway.

Hudson Turner

Jeremiah Watson

They're still only the Chaos Emeralds until they're powered up, which they are not in that pic. And the canon ending is the Super Sonic ending, not the Hyper Sonic ending, so no, they're not the Super Emeralds.

This is easily the best Sonic game, it fixes most of the problems with earlier titles, has better level design, has better bossfights, level transitions occur naturally like Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Chemical Zone act 2 is actually good unlike Sonic the Hedgehog 2, there's none of the good future bad future shit of Sonic CD, the new Emerald stages are good, similar to the ones in CD but improved. Soundtrack so far is improved but I saw gameplay of Lava Reef Zone, they butchered the best tune.

With any luck Sonic team is dissolved and Christian Whitehead's studio is the only one that makes Sonic games from now into the future. Yuji Naka a shit, Sonic team a shit.

Okay, hold the fuck up. I came here to get rid of some political shitposting, but I'm making an official statement on this shit. The intent was not malicious nor was it for attention If it was I would've stickied it here.

I purely leaked everything since people were probably gonna bug me nonstop, and I figured since people wanted to be more informed about the game then I might as well. It was purely for the people who cared about this information and wanted to know more about the game.

With that said anyone who thinks this move is to spite SEGA or anything of the sort is an idiot. I've been telling people that the game is amazing and they should buy it. I've been giving the game a positive word. Leaking Mania isn't an attack on SEGA, it's basically anyone someone who wasn't under NDA would do. If anything blame Nintendo for being incompetent with their online systems.

I got the game and now you do too. I hope everyone enjoys it and does a little better than I did through my first play through. But you're retarded if you think I did this shit with malicious intent.

I died once to the mecha Robotnik at the end of Green Hill Zone, because when I beat it, the fucking cliff collapsed. I laughed at the comedy of it, and did better on my second go at it. Got two chaos emeralds and I think five tokens to unlock the peel out and flash attack, as well as other crap that ain't moves or characters.

Sonic Mania is… Some synthesis of Sonic CD minus its arguably horrible level design, and S3&K with its solid gold everything (Fuck Sandopolis). I genuinely love it, and I hate everything.

Is this game selling well?

Do we have a chance at Sonic Mania 2?

Kevin Gomez

It hasn't even been a day yet user, just wait a little. That being said the answer to both questions is likely to be yes.

I was hoping there were some pre-order numbers to go off, but if this doesn't sell extremely well then CLASSIC sonic is basically dead. Please please please sell.

If this game ends up with no Denuvo, is there a way I can buy it without some of my money going to Valve? I want to support SEGA to make more classic sonic games.

tfw you work for a video game website called Polygon
you're about to send your 42nd tweet about punching nazis and #resist-ing the Drumpf regime when your boss calls and tells you to review a game.
You think "oh cool, it must be another ludonarrative experience like my favorite game: Gone Home. Maybe it's Tacoma made by one of my non-binary folk of color"
It's Sanic Mania
you're literally shaking
you're having DooT flashbacks while an indie cover of It ain't me starts playing in the office
one of your white colleagues with diverse pink hair gives you a Pepsi, a box of crayons and a coloring book.
you start feeling better

PC leak when?

Send your money to Taxman or Stealth.

There's not gonna be a PC leak. Unlike Nintendo, Steam keeps their shit locked until release date.

Is it just me, or does this one not show up as a boss?

I just finished a run as Knuckles, and didn't fight the rider at all.

It does. Mark fought her at the end of Lava Reef.

So how many of you got the special edition?

Charles Moore

I did. Too bad I can't play the fucking game yet. The box is really nice. If you look closely at the back of the collector's card, it says fun is infinite.

When the normal final boss went to use her, the section didn't seem to work. Like, it was just an empty area.

BTW, there is a gold ring inside the cartridge. You got to tug a bit on the "circuit"

Got it for PC

William Long

Oh, I know. Mine falls out easily, though. I don't know if it got damaged during shipping or what.

So did Mark ever contact anyone about ripping the soundtrack? There's a sound test in the game but it requires all the medals to unlock, apparently.
