    Eh, it does the job.

    I will say though, kinda love the box art, if only because it kind of looks like a blend of the modern and JP classic aesthetics.

    At least it's not a full price 60$ like Nintendo did with their Mario 35th 3D games collection

    Another Digital Deluxe Edition, huh? Third one this year after Persona 5 Strikers and Shin Megami Tensei III HD.
     
  6. It sure would be great if the trailer was mistaken, which would make sense if it was put together months ago if not as early as last spring. I plan on getting it for the Switch, but I wouldn't mind getting it for PC if it was through Steam as the site indicates.

    Wow man. This is where I use the :LookAtHowTheyMassacraedMyBoy: smile?
    • Epic Exclusive
    • Denuvo
    • Worse lighting
    • Desaturated colours
    • Seams in geometry
    • Inconsistent framerate (at least in the trailers)
    I did want it, but... Not like this.

    It seems to imply on the website the remixes are boss related, which makes sense because there were 3 unique boss types (they all get repeated twice) in the game minus Eggman and there are 3 remixes. But the trailer had a new buttrock song so maybe that's related?

    ... ngl I liked Reach for the Stars better

    Oh nice, I remember getting a good vibe from the original announce trailer for Sonic Colors back in the day ( Unfortunately, I never owned a Wii )

    I can see why some people are bothered by lighting ( but the modders will at least fix that for the PC version :V )

    Also, I seem to be one of the very few people who isn't *that* bothered about EGS exclusivity, in fact I pre ordered the Digital Deluxe edition already. I can understand why some might be upset though

    Denuvo mention was removed, possible error like it was with Puyo Puyo Tetris 2.

  11. Not sure if this has been mentioned, but the gamestop pre order page says that the jade ghost wisp let's you pass through solid objects to discover new routes :p

    ohhhh dammit there's "exclusive remixes". F. I won't get the super special stuff (I especially don't care for Sega mixing more of the movie into the games) but it sucks to have some tracks sent to pre-order purgatory.
     
  14. Is this the first time Sega have outsourced their porting or remaster?

    So like, is this gonna still be in 30FPS or will we get 60FPS with the remaster? It was never said, so I wasn't sure. The trailer is in 60FPS, but I sometimes don't know if that's just companies being weird or not.

    Probably? I'm sure it'll get unlocked on PC by modders if not, but every PC Sonic game thusfar has been in 60fps as far as I can remember. Forces was in 60fps on everything but the switch and this game definitely isn't quite up to that graphical fidelity. I think it's pretty safe to assume 60fps as a given.

    I felt like I heard someone said it was 60 fps, but maybe they were just going off the trailer (I think it was GameXplain). It'd be dumb if it wasn't.

    Hopefully if it is in 60 fps you don't clip through the aquarium park tunnel like you do in the dolphin emulator :V

    Yeah, I checked the site one hour ago and it was still with mentions to Steam in the footnote, but now it's already changed to Epic Store. Something did happen behind the curtains for such a last-minute change.

    Well, it's a shame such exclusivity. I really hope it's a temporary exclusivity, even if it means I'll have to wait for another year (after all, what is one year more for those who waited more than 10 years for it?). Nothing against Epic Store, I've never used it, but the idea of not being able to have all the Sonic games released for PC on the same platform really bothers me.

    Sounds kinda cool, though I already beat the Wii version anyway and didn't really have a desire to ever play it again. Might get it on sale if there's a good reason to buy it.
