Re: Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces

I'm surprised to see a 2D game of Sonic that isn't trash since Sonic and Knuckles/Sonic CD back in the day as Sonic Team is just awful. I was really enjoying it, but I hit what many online call like 5% of the game that's rage worthy and quit on it yesterday until I'm willing to go for it again. I burned through every life and picked up extra I had up on a boss because of the weird jump mechanics on Sonic games that have always been there. I'll come back to it.

I recognize it's nice, and i recognize the reviews are also honest that there are a few discrete pieces of the game that are just nut punchers and that's one of the few.

I think Sonic 2 + Knuckles is my favorite out of those. Mania is very well done though. I definitely see what the fuss was all about. I'm glad that I held out for the physical version. I really enjoyed when
one of the boss fights was Mean Bean Machine.


Yup that part blew my mind.

Some nice interviews with Christian Whitehead popping up now, this dude rules:

It's cool this could be the start of a nice career for him and other ventures, BUT I want to be super selfish and hope him and his team still keep this partnership with Sega going and we can get Mania 2 with 100% all new levels!

Me too! In fact, I want more. Let him finally remaster Sonic 3 & Knuckles and release a full physical collection with all of his remasters of the classic Genesis games on (Sonic CD included). It's about time those were on consoles, since they're all still exclusive to mobile.

And he said he wants to explore 3D? Well let's get him on board for a Generations 2 and make the game that Sonic Forces should have been. Oh oh oh and get him to make a Sonic Adventure type of 3D Sonic game too! I'd love to see what he could do with 3D Sonic, since he understands Sonic so well.

I want it all :lol:
