Steam's having a Sonic sale now until Friday. You can get 66% of Forces if you want it. This struck me as kind of odd though

What the hell is Sonic Colors art doing there (Sonic Colors DS art nonetheless)? If it's a sign then great, I'd be totally happy with a Colors port.

Double post because different subject. Apparently the Brazillian version of SADX PC 2004 has a translation error on the back stating that Sonic has different costumes to wear.

I didn't know this database ... it's way better than this one... it gave me more results than the other one ... thanks for sharing :) ... this helps a lot ...Edit: So Sega first filed a trademark application for Segasonic on December 11th, 1991, one day after Taito filed one for its game ... interesting...

I wonder if all that copyright stuff is the reason why the sequel to Sonic Blast Man is just called "Real Puncher"...

Jeez. It was a recent game too. If that doesn't say something about the quality/sales of the game, I dunno what does.

EDIT: Eh, actually considering the other games are on sale too, I should probably retract that statement.

It has the same discount as 3-year-old Lost World, which coincidentally makes it cost just 0.40 less than Sonic Mania... so I'd say that it does say something about the quality/sales of the game.

Sega removed posts from Facebook and Twitter with that Colors quadrant, so either it's an honest boo-boo on the social media team's end, or Sega has some porting plans. I'm betting on the former.

I also just find it funny that all those games are the notable "good" ones. And of course that means Forces is nowhere to be found.

Yea I think they know it's a dud.

I don't suppose the wiki has an article for these kind of promotions? :v:

I wish they'd change Sonic 4's description in the Steam store. "The sequel fans have waited 16 years for is finally here". Really, SEGA? Still? :v:

An accidental find:

I posted the proper coverage of Sonic 2 in this issue of Beep! MegaDrive a few months ago, but I didn't spot this on the contents page. Can you see it?

This is not really anything official, especially since he wasn't directly involved, but Game Informer interviewed Tetsuya Mizuguchi about Tetris Effect this week. During the end of the interview they were talking about Space Channel 5 and how Michael Jackson asked to be in the game and Miz told the story about that. A follow up question asked him if he knew whether or not Michael Jackson was involved in Sonic 3:

The answer: "I think so" (but he clarifies that he doesn't know much about that project)

Just mentioning it here so it's noted.
