Maybe a retrogoer would be willing to sell you one for less; they're pretty cheap now in the US

Wow really? D:
Might be worth asking someone here who lives in the states to ship you a copy- would be worth it in my opinion~

Despite how much I would love to have Sonic Generations, I will just wait for a cheap copy to show up, have patience. Posted Image

Plus I don't think I could buy it from here, I'm rather restricted in the online shopping department. Posted Image

Easier said than done. There's not really much warning or indication on those homing shots, how are we supposed to know when he's going to do it?

Impossible to miss: it's when <insert obnoxious character here> is shouting LOOKS LIKE A HOMING SHOT, which you will come to hate after the umpteenth time.

I think you quoted the wrong post, Vaiyt. Posted Image

So I played Modern Speed Highway in my friend's PS3. Am I the only one that had difficulties in the drifting highway part near the end of the level?

Yeah, Sega really missed a trick on that. Could have done with an audio cue or something...

Is that the one with the cars you have to avoid? It is difficult at first, but you have to drift at the right spot. Generations's drift is an inside drift, so it's best to drift by the inner walls.

Yup, that's the one. Sonic was uncontrollable in that part for me, he kept going nonstop crashing with the walls. Then again, I have to get used to Sonic Generations' drift so it's kind of obvious that I would have problems in that part. :v:

If you're looking to grab a copy on PC, now's a damn good time. Sonic Generations is $10.19 right now on Amazon and is redeemable on Steam.

Aw man. It's times like these when I wish I had a gaming PC. I'd love to get it, if my laptop could handle Gens. I tried the demo, and it can barely handle Classic Sonic's gameplay at the lowest resolution. Playing around with the various Generations mods would be awesome.

I just want to start out by saying I'm totally a 2D person, I never played Sonic Adventure or Sonic Heroes or anything really and enjoyed it. I know there are a lot of people out there that try to tell me those are the better of the 3D games, but I hate them. Too much talking, story, and worst of all, shit gameplay. I liked Sonic Colors and think it's the best 3D game I've played so far, but Sonic Generations is just a unique experience. I will say this is fucking good. I thought "oh, well, it has 2D levels, I'll enjoy those way more than the 3D zones!" That's definitely not the case; I have a new love for 3D Sonic games.

I've almost completed Green Hill Zone completely, all I have left now is finding 5 more red rings in 2D mode. After going 3D I don't wanna go back, it's so much fun. Should I be brave and try the really shitty games like Sonic 2006 and Sonic Riders?

I love this game!

I'm wondering if I should buy that copy now, for when I get a decent enough to play it...

Does anyone know how long that'll be on sale for?

Fuck no, don't play '06 unless it's on PS3 and you have Gene's save.

Riders is cool though. :p

No idea but is the 3DS version anything like the PS3 game? Is it like, awesome too? I only have the PS3 version, is the game pretty much the same?

EDIT: If anyone wants to add me and compare trophies and stuff, my name is chocobokrisp2007. Not really sure if there's an online co-op mode? I just started, so my trophy collection isn't amazing :P
