    Haha, awesome! I finally get to witness a prototype release; this should be an epic time in the community. I'm especially looking forward to the S3&K beta.

    Chaotix proto?


    I've got a bonus video for showing on my Let's Play Chaotix series!

    You are a fucking legend.

    Can I ask, do you have any name for the Sonic 2 prototype, if the Nick Arcade is known as Alpha & Wai's Beta, what's the next one, would we use Delta regardless of Esrael's hack or just refer it to the Late Prototype?

    I'll be on the IRC, hopefully.

    I have official names for all of the new prototypes, so I guess these will be the ones we will use.

    OMG S3&K and a Chaotix prototype holy shit you're fucking fantastic I can't wait to try both of them :D

    Oh and the later Sonic 2 prototype is nice too, but in the whole scope of everything, it's a tad bit more insignificant than the Sonic 3 and Chaotix proto, seeing as how we've all gone through Sonic 2 a billion times.

    EDIT: the 23rd? But I want it now D:
    This and Brawl. You just made my month sir (Well, they all come out within 30 days of each other, so it's kinda like a month)

    EDIT 2: Any chance you'd be willing to spill some early spoilers? Sonic in Chaotix? Playable levels in S3&K? Knuckles playable in S3&K? More complete Hidden Palace?

    QFT I can't stress that enough.

    How odd that I find more joy out of a prototype that's probably buggy than any modern Sonic game. Kinda sad really. Sonic 06 was a prototype, yes, but it certainly wasn't fun.

    Awesome DRX, I'm interested to see the Chaotix and Sonic 3 beta. Who knows if there will be much interesting in the Sonic 2 one since from that picture it's obviously a later prototype.

    drx, I love you. I wish you could have done this 2 days ago so you could be my valentine.

    EDIT: also, how early are these protos? Obviously the S2 one is after the S2NA proto, but what about the S3 and Chaotix ones?

    I was here the day the NA beta was released (election day), and it was a very awesome day.

    I can't wait to see this new proto; it looks like it's worth a wait.
     
  17. Sonic 3 beta => fantastic.

    (PS: hey guys what's goin' on)

    Haha, I must be insane, but ever since reading this I've been hyped =P
    I'm guessing I'm not the only one who is looking forward to the 23rd
    (23th in DRX's post, wth?)

    It's better not be hoaxes! I, like everybody, am very interested in looking into these prototypes.

    Quick note: by looking closely at the HUD in the Lava Reef screenshot, I think I see that it was "fading in", as if level transitions were not implemented (or the level was entered by the Level Select (very likely), or it was just after losing a life).

    I'd say the S2 one is later than Wai's proto, because of the 1 Player/2 Player VS menu which wasn't in that version.

    Amazing. DRX wins again.

    I have much anticipation to see these in action!
