Hey Everyone!

Did you see the cool Sonic Mania Plus Infomercial that came out today? Has our very own Racketboy favorite Nathan Barnatt.

This is probably one of my favorite ridiculous things the Sonic advertising team has ever done :lol:

I think they did a nice job with the ad, especially the fact instead of cutting a lie against a competitor they decided to slam the problems of the modern industry instead for humor which is fantastic. I still remember the old ads, found the lies in them annoying enough I never bought anything new from Sega until the end of the 90s a few years after going into NEC stuff. As with any product I don't support lying about the other guy to sell stuff when you could give me a reason about yours instead to buy it. :)

The game is in the mail at the moment from Amazon for Switch and I'm looking forward to seeing what a competent (finally) developer can do with the old franchise since Sonic Team is clueless.

I want to play an FPS where you point your fingers as your gun now.

Well there was the hand of god weapon in the original Rise of the Triad right with some holy chanting sound when you zap someone if I remember correctly. Will that do?

It was yawning. You were yawning at how easy things were with god mode.

This was amazing. When I first watched it, I didn't realize it was him. Halfway through, I was like "wait.... is that... hey!" :D

Hmm I guess so. I haven't played it since the 90s but you still get to dispatch people with holy flair at least. I still remember that one boss with that dumb quote about him going to bury you in a lunchbox and out comes the hand of god to see who ends up as the left overs in the thermos pretty quickly.

That was awesome, KEITH is still the man. It would be funny he did Shenmue commercial. I'm still waiting for the new Sega controllers announced a few months back Retro-Bit.
