THIS IS A MEGATHREAD. MEGATHREAD RULES ARE IN EFFECT.
If I see any one-line replies, off-topic noise or people complaining about spoilers, I will personally come to your house and break your keyboard. That, or make sure you get suspended. And they say large sites don't offer personal service. ;)


Welcome to the Sonic Generations Megathread II: Electric Boogaloo! Now that the street date has broken and our old Megathread hit more than 11,000 replies, we're opening a second topic for discussing reviews, personal impressions and any post-release news that comes up. IF YOU LIKE THE GAME, BUY IT. DON'T PIRATE IT. NOT FINANCIALLY SUPPORTING COOL THINGS MAKES YOU AN ASSHAT.

Music: Andrew75 has released a rip collection which can be found at this location. Waiting on actual release of soundtrack and/or iTunes drop.
Metacritic Scores: PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 / PC / 3DS

Alright, punks. Let's get running.

Oh wow, that Chemical Plant concept art has the cornered loops ala Sonic 2 Beta.

God damn, Casino Night is SO jazzy.

Also, I'm personally a little underwhelmed by the "For True Story" remix. Here's hoping they have the original version in there somewhere!

Loving what I've heard of the soundtrack so far. For anyone who doesn't want to download the giant ZIP file, a kind man on Twitter has been posting soundtrack rips to his Mediafire page.

One line comment. GO ON THEN, COME AT ME BRO--

This is turning out to be my Game of the Year. It still isn't out for another 7 days in Europe. I am in love with everything from this game that I have seen so far.

Edit: This soundtrack is the best thing I have ever heard.

The Stardust Speedway remix is downright orgasmic. It's pretty much perfect in every way. For True Story, however, is a mess. How they managed to screw that one up, I'll never know.

has anyone saved all of the pre-final screenshots, videos etc? They might be useful to the wiki or Sonic Retro-Retro 2041, and then nuke the original thread (because who wants to sift through 11 thousand replies just to find achievement icons, right?)
I only just bought a 360 tonight, mostly for this game, and I'll pre order the special edition box thingy as soon as I can :)

I know we only have half of the soundtrack with that zip, but has anyone else noticed Ice Cap, Carnival Night, and Launch base missing from the soundtrack dumps so far? They included Angel Island, Marble Garden, Baloon Park, Mushroom Hill, Flying Battery, Hydrocity and Death Egg(S3K Version). I am starting to wonder wither there are some issues with MJ's estate in remixing those songs.

So Remix of Stardust US in Gens and no US soundtrack in Sonic CD rerelease? That's suspicious.

People really shouldn't assume that every time something from Sonic 3 isn't referenced it's Michael Jackson's fault. Lots of music didn't make it in.

Rooftop Run classic's beginning sounds like something I heard before, but the only thing it comes to mind is Leaf Forest and that's not it.
