    If we're talking Sonic Rush, it isn't so much that it was a bad game in as much as it became part of the template for the 2d sections of the boost games which are fairly forgettable.

    For the record, I HATE the run behind segments in the boost games. I find myself asking, "Why do I have to hold up?".

    The special stages of the classics did this better. Hell, the auto run sections of SLW do it way better.

    Boost mechanic was pretty lazy to be honest and frustrating to me. Couldn't really take it seriously - why have momentum based physics when you can just press a button?

    Really enjoyed the 3d special stage in Sonic Mania, it honestly has better auto run physics and control than the mediocre wii titles *cough* Sonic and the Secret Rings *cough*

    This game is so fun to play, it's like I'm actually a kid again playing the Sega Megadrive.

    Recently bought the Nintendo Switch version, but have yet to play it.
    Curiously, are there any hints of any new features for the PC release less than 2 weeks away?

    No, but you can count on mods happening. Modding on PC is going to keep this game alive forever. Just look at what it did for Generations.

    Or look at all the Sonic CD mods, game that was actually built with the same engine.


    There are really, really cool things going on with Sonic CD (Taxman) modding that just aren't public right now. Things that would really blow minds.

    Color me excited! :D

    Yeah Sonic Adventure positively follows up 3 & Knuckles, and perhaps 3D Blast and Chaotix as well.

    As noted, I believe Sonic 2 GG precedes Sonic 2. Outside some flavor text in the manual, I can't readily think of anything that rules out its placement beforehand. Sonic Chaos could easily take place directly after Sonic 2 GG, which means it would also precede Sonic 2 MD. Triple Trouble follows up Chaos, but not immediately, so it'd be tricky placing that before Sonic 2 as well. Sonic 2 may or not lead directly into Sonic 3 though. Yes, Super Sonic is racing Tails in the Tornado to Angel Island and that could easily take place right after the Good Ending of Sonic 2. They may have stopped and celebrated or something though, so there may have been a delay into the events of Sonic 3.

    To place Triple Trouble before Sonic 3 would still be tricky though, unless Knuckles stealing the emeralds from Sonic wasn't their first interaction. I'll go with Triple Trouble taking place after some/all the events of 3, but before the events of & Knuckles.

    Then there's Sonic Blast...which I suppose takes place after 3D Blast and Chaotix.

    Actually, fuck it. Can SEGA just tear up the manuals and re-write a new timeline, Hyrule Historia style that includes everything? :v:/>/>


    Yes. SEGA PLEASE!

    As long as they don't do it Ken Penders style.

    Just another thought (sorry if this is posted already, I couldn't find any evidence of it.)

    Could this screen shot we've all seen be evidence of R2 being in Sonic Mania? If I was making an official Sonic game I would make all the missing zones from my childhood.

    R2 was a ruins level. The one you see in the credits animation.

    R2 looks like it's from the Sonic OVA.
