I just noticed the Sonic side of the signpost looks a lot better this time.

Poor Tails.

Well, judging by those achievements, if it turns out you really can play as Tails only, they should have a Tails version of the sign.

Otherwise, it always has been a Sonic-only sign in Sonic & Tails mode. =P

Well if came straight from Kellie's mouth that we won't be able to play as Tails alone, so I would assume that the achievement is in fact referring to choosing Tails in multiplayer.

Tails is playable, but not in single player. When playing single player, you play as Sonic and interact with Tails to progress through the levels. When you're playing two player, one of you will play as Sonic and the other as Tails, and work together.

Sylvania Castle Zone? Really, SEGA? REALLY?

That pun is so bad it's radioactive.

On a more positive note, everything about this game is looking good so far except that if the trailer is anything to judge by it'll still have its share of gratuitous boost-pads and bumper-to-bumper auto segments. Which isn't a gamebreaker by any means so long as the majority of the level design makes up for it.

I think he means this. Intentional or not, it's the first thing to have sprung to many people's minds.

The music is indeed important. As we know, episode 1 relied on simple synthesizers and had songs that were too short. Maybe episode 2 will rectify these issues.

I'm really wondering the reason of why Metal Sonic is fought in Sky Fortress Zone Act 1. Shouldn't he be fought in Act 3? I'll have to wait and see the reason of that.


Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with the Achievements, but I'm not really excited for the return of the Red Rings. Oh well, at least there's no achievement in Episode 2 like that wretched Untouchable achievement in the first Episode.

One day I'll get you, Untouchable achievement Posted Image

I think the name was influenced by something a little... gayer than that.

Thank god we can disable signatures now lol :v:


Srsly people are already going crazy and mad after seeing some trailer.

The ones on retro are the MINORITY of the world of sonic fans even though we're the biggest fan club. If we got a poll: How many of us got sonic 4 officially. It would be as low as 40% IMO and that lots of sales Balough mentioned didn't get Retro support, so this is more or less useless :P

Also don't get me wrong, I won't buy EP2 lol.

the only way I'll ever get Ep 2 is if someone gifted me it on steam. I will not pay for any more sonic 4.

I'm in the "I'll wait until the price gets lowered to like $5" group so far. It seems like it could be some fun at least (MUCH more than E:1), but I refuse to pour a whopping $15 into this game unless the physics are up to par (even then, $15 still is asking too much). Though they clearly are giving more 'effort' this time, it is not the maximum effort. $15 is a maximum effort, physics-accurate, good music, 7 stage price tag. This game looks beautiful, but I will not reward SEGA/DIMPS for blatantly not trying their best to create and deliver the highest quality product possible. They should have just used the Retro Engine; there would nearly be no valid complaints game-play-wise. It's quite sad, really.

I don't even believe this game is worth that much when you can get the Master system titles for that much and even they provide a better experience with more content, plus allow you to play as tails (chaos/Sonic & Tails). If the game gear games come out before this does, I'm buying them on Ep2's release date.

That is exactly what came into my mind aswell, plastic furries that live in plastic trees.

Yea but the game gear titles came out years ago. I wouldn't even value them at $5 when I can emulate them fairly easily for free.
