    What if they go the Sonic CD route for boss stages? In most of those, I'm pretty sure someone can get at least 50 rings.

    Hmm, that's true. Maybe the boss stages as a whole with just be bigger? The boss concept art made the first boss look pretty huge, I guess we'll see. This is the most likely route they're going.

    What they've essentially done this time is make us wait 2 years for a game we don't want. I think it's best if Sonic 4 comes to an end after this.

    It's probably more like, "get all the emeralds in one stright runthrough without going back and retrying."

    I'd be alright with that if Sega goes that route. Then again, Generations 3DS kicked you back to the map screen after every act, so I'm guessing that's sticking around for Episode II. :(

    I didn't mind, nor care about the whole pressing Y to advance to the next stage. Yeah, it's kinda dumb and it should function the exact opposite way (Press Y to go back the the map screen), but in the long run like, who cares? You press the button, then go to the next stage, I don't have a problem with it. A much better option to always being forced back to the map screen no matter what, ala Donkey Kong Country Returns and Sonic Colors.

    You know, it may function the opposite way this time. Not saying that it's for sure, but neither is the E1 method.

    Actually, they were in Secret Rings first. :v:

    I wonder if we'll get to go on the rollercoaster that's in the background? - Sonic 4: Episode II's "Mine Cart"-type stage, version 2? :p *is shot*

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

    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.

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    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 [​IMG]

    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.
