It looks all right (so far). An improvement from Ep. 1, for sure, so I'll probably download the PSN version.

Hate to burst bubbles but check it at 00:37 when just after the spring barrage Sonic loses half if not complete momentum. We fixed the physics guys we promise!

Good thing that wasn't a primary concern of mine. How dare I wish to have fun with other people! :specialed:

I'm still looking forward to it, but, uh, Sega, what happened to that whole new physics thing you mentioned? It looked exactly the same but without uncurling. .-.

But... He didn't have any momentum to begin with. He hit a spring. Just saying.

Sonic 4 wasn't the worst thing in the world. This won't be the worst thing in the world. Everyone acts like someone just took a massive steaming shit on your mom's chest or something. I'm probably gonna enjoy it when it comes out. The game, not taking a massive steaming shit.

I was talking about the game improving on the first, not whether It was the worst thing in the world or not. But no it's not, I can happily carry on my life with this in existance. Christ knows how I continued after Sonic 06 dropped, but I managed.

Yeah, despite my criticisms towards the trailer's content, I'm really not expecting a "shit" game. It will be underwhelming, yeah. There are too few levels and the level design looks very similar, but for all that it's worth this does seem like, in some areas, a successor to the Genesis games. No, it isn't Sonic 4 as we always imagined it, but the level progression looks really cool, I like the zone tropes, the graphics are awesome and if the trailer is anything to go by then the music will be pretty good too.

Wasn't talking about you specifically, mate. Your comments are pretty moderate. It just seems like there's a lot of hyperbole being thrown around that I think is the result of people getting their hopes up that this would really be anything different. Sonic 4:1 was O.K. Sonic 4:2 will probably be O.K.

Then in that case yeah, I agree. Believing Ken Balough is why we can't have nice things.

Kellie Parker on the SEGA forums confirmed that Tails is only playable in two-player mode.

Sort of disappointing.

But surprising? Fuck if they do anything right. They take one step in the right direction, they'll take three in the other.

Yeah, I was just about to mention that it seems like there'll be no Sonic or Tails-only mode, considering that it appears to have a lot of the level designed specifically for the combo of Sonic & Tails together (Tails carrying Sonic in the water, the Sonic/Tails spin-dash-merge-thing). I can imagine there could be a lot of character-switching ala Sonic Heroes on this.

I just hope the AI will make up for this.

Fixing the damn centered text. :I

You people complain too much. Also was that some "plane switching" I saw?

It's a little disappointing for Tails fans, but I don't think it's that big of a deal. If the levels are designed around them as a combo and it actually works, then I'll be happy. A lot of people were upset that Diddy wasn't playable in Country Returns, but that game was excellently designed otherwise, so if this is so much as half a decent game that's fun for a romp every now and then I can't really complain. I never played as Tails anyway.

I'll probably end up getting the Steam version. Maybe some mods or something can fix some of these problems (like Tails only being available in 2 player mode).
