    Mania is so backwards and such a waste without playable Amy Rose and Sally Acorn. at least Forces seems like female characters might be possible (saw feminine eyelashes in the avatar creator, lol.)
    all that budget they could have make a SA1 worthy game, at least that had more variety. and Heroes wasn't so bad, though it was lame the gameplay forced switching characters and the others are treated like basketballs or something.

    Looks like even the first acts of later stages are mostly remixed as well, so at least like 80%-90% of the game is new as far as level design goes, I'm guessing

    My bad bros lool. At least I managed to avoid spoilers for myself. When is this game officially out?

    See, you say this, but the fact these people remain employed means they are speaking to some type of audience that resonates with their scrubbery.

    unless you're trying to play on Switch in which case they haven't uploaded the eshop....I already have it preloaded on the PS4 but can't play it on that currently. I want to give you money Nintendo...LET ME GIVE YOU MONEY....

    Edit: from what I'm reading on Gaf Xbox won't update until 8am. Thaaaat sucks a duck.

    Edit 2: Ok so it's not the fact that it won't update until 8am but the game won't unlock until 8am. Ok the game not being on the marketplace because it needs to up date is one thing that sounds dumb.
    .
    Edit 3: apparently the eshop won't update until 3am ET because that's midnight PT. I suppose I'll head to bed and just wake up early and start playing.

    Chemical plant act 2 is fucking awesome. I loved the gimmicks introduced in the second act. The boss battle is genius. Second act boss for Studiopolis will not be kind to speedrunners.

    Stardust Speedway still has Sonic CD style level design. Easily makes it the worst stage imo. The nods to CD were great.

    Did green hill zone before going to bed last night, was mostly sick but didn't like the boss.
    It feels like what you should have to do is get him to extend his arms and use them to get to his head but...

    He doesn't do that attack enough and for some weird reason his big stompy feet have no hitbox so instead of the seemingly logical way to beat him I ended up just running through his feet and hitting his back.

    Felt kind of wrong

    A small gripe but it bugs me, overall the game still feels like fucking magic though, my lunch break can't come soon enough.
    “It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so ****ing what."

    Pretty sure whether he uses bombs or the are drop off relative to how far away you are when the lock on is finished

    Ah that makes sense thanks
    Being able to just run through his feet still doesn't though

    Btw can you dropdash with somic and tails?
    I got a feeling the hitch a ride with tails command replaces it but not sure if I'm missing a trick.

    Some of these later special stages are really freaking hard. I can't even beat the 4th one yet

    Carry is up plus jump, drop dash is just hold jump while in the air. You do seem to have a minimum speed or height, but it's not that strict. Make sure you aren't holding up though

    Np.

    I beat the game just now. Freaking amazing
    That last stage is a little drawn out but I am definitely in love with the rest of the game. They really went all out with the remixing. I love all the new and revamped bosses, awesome stuff.

    I am SO glad I didn't watch the opening cut scene when SEGA released it on YouTube. That thing is a animation porn.

    I was bit annoyed at first with all the returning zones but Act 2 of Green Hill and Chemical Plant had enough differences to where they felt like new territory. The boss of Chemical Plant Act 2 was great and really makes me glad I got familiar with
    Puyo Puyo via Puyo Puyo Tetris

    I didn't check out the special stages on YouTube (avoided spoilers all around) so playing them in game was my first time really seeing them. Nice to see the half pipe is not here. That thing got used way too much. True, it's the UFO stage again but I'm just glad the team didn't resort to that freaking half pipe.

    Also, this game looks clean AF!
