I'm just going to say so no one gets over excited. Sonic 4 isn't my priority at PAX East but, I'm probably going to play it since I'm there. I'm not going to go in and waste my day trying to get footage for it, since I'm only going there for 1 day. There are so many companies there, and I have about 8 hours to see them all, that's not a lot of time when you factor in waiting in lines. I'm just saying that I'll post some impressions about what I experience, explaining things enough of what people are interested in hopefully. Stage design, co-op (if applicable, I would assume it is), making sure the physics actually changed like the videos seem to hint, and whether the music still sounds like cats.

Found this rather funny video on a guy's thoughts on Sonic 4. Not sure if you guys have seen this or not but it made me giggle. Can't quite tell if he's overplaying it on purpose or serious. Either way, it was funny.



"Now don't get me wrong, STILL not as good as MARIO'S games, but okay"
"Mario is the king"
"Mario rules, Sonic sucks"

Lol, weren't we going to talk Sonic 4 and not the whole Nintendo VS SEGA Wars and why Sonic fans are "stupid"?

If you can could you please try rolling down the hill Ken mentioned in Sylvania Castle Act 2?

Mario games vs Sonic games is as good as the Apple vs Orange argument.

Sonic 4 Ep. 2 Avatar Items are now available on XBL.

So maybe that rumored April release might come true after all?

The Tails doll looks so much better than Tails' in-game model.

Haha, that Tails toy is great, I actually just put point on my 360 for the first time in over a year to get it. Its's a shame really because before then, I had managed to work my points down to exactally zero XD

The hoodies and suits don't seem to be online, are they unlockable in game? (not that I'd get a Tails suit, but I might get a hoodie XD)

Whenever I see new Xbox avatar things for the newest Sonic game, it makes me wonder why the PS3 hasn't received anything Sonicy like that apart from themes. It'd be nice if there was a couple of Sonic PSN avatars, especially if they were of Sonic's sprites from 1, 2 or 3 even.

Also I still wonder why people nowadays still continue the "Mario Vs. Sonic" debate as if they're still in the 90's. Mario's good in his own way, same goes for Sonic, now can we just move on from that?

And it probably seems really likely that if the Wii U's storage and online capabilities are better than the Wii, then we'd be seeing Sonic 4 and all it's episodes on that instead.

XBLA games are -required- to have these items. It's been a sore point for many an indie dev for a long time.

Fun reads. That said, you're absolutely right, a company with SEGA's resources could easily throw some of it at the Sony side of things.

I'm inclined to agree. Tails is too, erm, how do I put this without sounding like most of Retro... tall? I guess it isn't really his height, he's just too twiglike.

Oh well, not that big a deal, I guess.

Who would waste money playing dress ups when you can play the actual game? xD

I like the Sonic Hoodie.

BTW: The hoodies are not in the European Avatar Marketplace/Store. Or atleast they're not in the NZ one yet.

They're in the USA shop. I/My family has a USA account so we can check out stuff there.

I also like the Special Stage thing.
