    Some thoughts:

    1. I like that you're able to uncurl while rolling, but it seems like the analog controls are a bit stiff when it comes to what direction you're pointing to. I hope they fix that.

    2. The new "hold-to-charge" spindash I'm okay with, but it needs some fixing. You go WAY too fast with little effort, and with the new dedicated dash button, it seems too exploitable. I hope they slow it down, or go back to tap-dashing.

    Aw, they should've gone with <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Egg Fleet for Heroes</span>, that level was great!

    You've got to be fucking kidding me. I hope that this isn't US only.
    As for the Sonic Heroes stage, at least it isn't <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Seaside Hill</span>.

    So that means additional levels via DLC is confirmed. Why Casino Night Zone of all levels is DLC though makes no sense, that's one of the most popular levels in the entire series. It should be on the disc.

    They went with <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Seaside hill...</span>

    IT'S THE SAME FUCKING LEVEL. Morons. Now we have pretty much 2 city levels and 2 grass levels, and if that leaked list was true, that means we have 4 city tropes, 3 grass tropes, Sky Sanctuary, and Chemical Plant.

    Good fuck, at least this game is fun, because the levels they picked blow chunks. Also preorder bonus Casino Night Zone eh? Interesting.

    Watch it be on the disc, but locked until you get the unlock key via pre-order or buying it.

    In other news I had a fun time with the demo. Managed to get 0:47:84 as my best time, I think I can whittle it down to 46, but I'll do that later.

    Re: Casino Night. It says it's a "pinball stage inspired by Casino Night", so it might not be a full level.

    If he got the file names from the source then the level is indeed <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>Seaside Hill</span>. <span style='color:#000000;background:#000000'>ssh = Seaside Hill</span>

    And Sega you've got to be kidding me about the Casino Night dlc. Wtf? I hope this is present and easily crackable in the pc release.

    That's no better than the-

    Whoa holy shit, <I>over 200 guests.</I> Over a demo? Calm down internet.

    Chemical Plant Zone and Sky Sanctuary are the only levels in that list that have my attention. Everything else could have been replaced with levels with much more interesting motifs. It feels like they only hand picked the levels that would look the nicest in the Hedgehog Engine, making the roster feel more like a technical demonstration to me, imo.

    EDIT: I just realized the leaked list matches the same one Trunks posted. Disappointing, but expected.

    Wow that level list was real, and it sucks.

    However, that boss list is quite awesome. They picked out the good ones, shame there is no Knuckles fight though. I'd have loved to have fought classic Knuckles again.

    I'm curious as to what they mean by that. Do you fight the actual Death Egg, do you fight the end of Sonic 2 boss, or do you fight the end of Sonic and Knuckles boss?

    I'm hoping the last one. Also I hope that Metal Sonic boss fight is racing him. That'd make a great classic Sonic boss. Glad to see most of the bosses are interesting choices, although I am surprised at the exclusion of the wrecking ball boss.

    Man, that level list blows chunks. Seriously. Crap. Hopefully they decide to do a bunch of DLC that can save the game.
    And really, really. Three games on disc that are from the Genesis Era. No Sonic CD. What the hell.
