    Yea the fuck does that mean?

    So help me if they say "lol delay"

    They did say they would release the mania intro the day before release. Could they have bumped up the release due to leaks?

    They can't delay it at this point, the release date of August 15th is already everywhere at this point.

    You silly kids... stating your opinions as if they were facts.

    On a technical level, I agree that Mania's intro is better drawn and better animated than CD's, but I didn't feel particularly excited from watching it. Sonic is hopping from world to world without doing anything but protecting himself from an unexplained threat, along with music I found pretty bland. It just didn't get me pumped up like I would've liked.

    Oh holy shit Mirage Saloon did what we all hoped it did but with a twist.

    Also an unannounced returning stage confirms at least one game double dipping.

    Star Dust speedway did something I never thought they would ever do.

    I mean Dream Daddy was in a similar scenario but that was a last minute delay. But given the leak what's there to delay? The game is done and we know it.

    If there's one thing I can say I'm not looking forward to, it's this. I expect the difficulty to stay low since this is a sudden genre shift, but I never liked these types of games.

    The Dark green one is most likely Stardust speedway

    Leak list was wrong. Returning Zones leak was right though.

    Forget the music talk, this is my biggest gripe with Mania.

    Everyone's entitled to their opinions! And I can assure you we're listening. I will say I would have loved to have more sequences of running through actual stages but there are pretty inescapable reasons for why I chose the Pop Art world and spent most of the time there. I'll have to wait until the game comes out and get clearance from Sega on what we can or can't say, but I'd love to do a post-mortem write up about the intro at some point.

    Welp this guy streaming isn't going to get past this zone. I don't think I've ever seen anyone as incapable of playing a games since Polygon did DOOM.

    I don't know why I'm watching the stream, but I can't help myself. lol. I can't wait to see the game in action. Too bad he hasn't gotten to any of the bonus stages so far (got to it pretty late.)

    EDIT: This guy absolutely sucks at the game. It's like he's never played a Sonic game before. Done watching. He probably stopped the stream, anyway.
