Uuuugh I finally got the 'Untouchable' trophy I never have to play this crap again. Took fat too many attempts every so often over the last year or so.

So yeah.

Sonic 4: Episode 1 - Metal edition.

Figure its a good reason to bring this topic into play again and leave the E2 topic for E2 stuff.

It looks like it has updated physics and what not. also a different story instead of just being a sonic reskin.

Whos getting it?

I wonder if this episode metal will make episode 1 PC version more hackable?...

On the hacking thing, possibly. They're replacing a character and doing some level editing themselves by the sounds of it, which is more than the community's done with the game as far as I'm aware.

I'm just more interested in the physics potentially being fixed with the lock-on technology. It may actually make Episode I a bearable game.

I hope they enhance the port, because it has potential to look good!

As I bought Episode I, and will be buying Episode II, doesn't that mean I get Episode Metal for free? If so, then I'm getting it.

I wonder, will Episode II/Metal also patch up the physics of Episode I? Kinda sounds like Episode II and Metal might be installed as a kind-of addon.

Seriously, they could play this card and it would eerily make sense.

At least, it would make me feel better, rather than knowing the truth.

Yeah it looks like it. they are throwing it in as DLC once you buy episode 2 and you already have episode 1.

I'd like it if SEGA keeps admitting their mistakes and seriously listening to the fan's complaints.

Since my laptop died, we got an iPad and natrually I had to by the game because it's the only way I would get Ep. Metal. I played about 90% of the game in Tilt mode and it finally clicked why this game controls the way that it does....I.e. derp physics. It was made to control Sonic as easily as possible using motion controls. It all makes sense now! I was actually able to use those "dead stops" to my advantage. This prevents one from having to over compensate over and over again to get Sonic moving in a forward direction unlike those rolling ball type games and toys with realistic physics. The issue is that this wasn't changed for the console/controller versions which is were the laziness creeps in. The consoles needed to have momentum because of the different nature of the controls but the d-pad is equated to tilting and letting go is eqivallent to a tilt device being upright.

Makes all the sense in the world now. Remember, this game was initially made for handheld devices in mind. Console implementation was just a copy/paste move instead of optimization of each device. What a shame. I'm actually afraid of having too much momentum now for the Tilt control versions.....Haha!

Why call it episode Metal? Why not call it Episode 1.5 (1 1/2) since that's the timeframe it seems to take plae in. I suppose they named it that due to Metal Sonic being the entire focus and that Sonic isn't in it at all from what I can tell. And wouldn't that technically be a third episode?

That aside, I think Episode Metal will be awesome! Although I do feel sorry for the Wii people. Before we even knew about Episode Metal, I got a PS3 for two reasons: Episode II and Sonic Generations. I only got Episode I on the PS3 (also before Episode Metal anouncement) even after I got it on Wii and my iPhone just for the trophies and 1080p HD. I felt bad at first, but that night they anounced Episode Metal. Man I got lucky.

Anyway, I will be extremely happy if there is a Super Metal Sonic! That would be absolutely awesome.

I seem to remember that Episode Metal only has 4 acts. So I wouldn't get your hopes up there.

Episode Metal sounds pretty awesome. Super Metal Sonic would be be awesome as well ;)

Quick question, is there anyone here that actually liked S4: Ep 1? I loved it, the physics and stuff didn't bother me, I really enjoyed the game. I feel like I'm the odd one out, the one in a million :v:

Its definitely not the worst Sonic game, but I don't consider it good enough to be called a sequel to my personel favorite game of all time. Honestly, I would like it better if it wasn't called Sonic 4.

I'm tired of reading this. The game is what it is. Just because it's terrible, does not mean it's rights to a name is "not deserved". Sequels can be bad games too, no matter how good or praised the previous game was, or how long awaited the sequel was. Yes, Sonic 3&K was a great game, but can we drop the whole "THIS GAME DOES NOT DESERVE THE GLORIOUS LONG AWAITED TITLE OF SONIC 4!!!!" please? It's getting quite annoying.

Can I still bitch that Final Fantasy 11 and 14 shouldn't have been numbered titles?
