    Do we know what time the trailer will go up? I don't suppose it would be a midnight release type-a thing, though it would sure be nice.

    So, yeah. If we're getting it on the Xbox Live market place, it would probably be up around 3AM.

    EDIT: Video of the Teaser, not the game itself.

    It's up.

    Bored and uninterested until "new graphics engine" and "new physics engine", and now clapping my hands together like an excited seal. :V

    WHERE'S THE FREAKING GAMEPLAY

    Well, at least it sounds like they're doing some physics changes. Thank goodness.

    EDIT: And dang. New physics and graphics engine? Against my better judgement, my hopes are being pumped up again. BUT JUST GIVE ME GAMEPLAY

    Except this time with Tails instead of an obvious Sonic logo! Seriously, SEGA. Why the fuck do you make trailers like this? We didn't even see Sonic or Tails, all we saw was 2 balls.

    For anyone that can't view gamestop's version or don't want to. In the full video Ken says that Ep. 2 will be using a physics engine, and have a new graphical style. Oh and Tails as well.

    Also Chimpo is a wizard

    So has there been any change to that Sonic 4 Episode 1 posting on the Steam Registry?
     
  10. Then it's decided. On the release day of Sonic 4: Episode 2 I will buy the PC port of Sonic CD.

    If Episode 2 is close to release and the general consensus is that the game is another disappointment like the first, Sonic Retro should definitely collectively boycott it and do this instead. I know I will be.

    You do realize you're sounding like the idiots who wanted to boycott Episode 1 by buying Sonic 1, right?

    That would be the same, if Sonic CD wasn't an extremely well-done effort on Taxman's part and a real sign that Sega does care. I'd like to think that my purchasing decision (ie. Taxman's release of CD as opposed to Episode 2) is at least giving Sega an indication of what I, as a consumer, want in a product.

    Even then, it's still giving SEGA money, which is counter-productive when you're trying to boycott one of their products.

    Ok then we will donate money to Taxman and pirate the PC version, is that fair?! :v:

    Seriously this is getting kind of silly. lets just wait to see what S4E2 will look like before we start jumping ship.

    And more to the point, keep the Episode 2 discussion to the Episode 2 thread. Posting in here to try to avoid the heightened attention of Shark Week isn't going to work.

    This thread is for Episode 1, NOT 2.

    Meh, Sonic 4 is okay, but it get's really boring after a while. The stages are way to similar to stages in Sonic 1 and 2. The music's pretty fucking annoying to me aswell. I just don't like how everything feels the same.

    Since the version ID was updated from 0 to 2 there hasn't be any changes.

    EDIT: Scratch this, a few hours after I posted this there's been an update, the version ID has been updated from 2 to 5.

    In the Steam registry, the Current Version ID for unreleased games is usually listed as version 0, when games are launched the registry is updated to show version 1, and with any patch that is released for the game, the ID is increased.

    No idea why Sonic 4 Ep1 was updated from version 0 to version 2 and now version 5, I wonder if maybe the launch version/release candidate version had problems and the updates to version 2 and 5 were patches to try to fix the problems?
