    Honestly the way the game's Continue system works for picking up from where you left off in general almost feels.. Save State-y? I mean, not entirely, but it's pretty weird. Some people have died and then kept their shields they had when they passed a checkpoint, too.

    I noticed the save ring animation in the corner right away every time I hit a checkpoint.

    Oh, I noticed it, I just still didn't expect the game to so graciously put you back at your last checkpoint when continuing. It doesn't feel like cheating to me because story mode has infinite lives anyway so it's really just a time saving convenience.

    Nice work!

    Just noticed the number portion of SEGA's address [3375] and the zip code [94545] is marked out on the back of North American box art for Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3/Knuckles, Sonic Spinball & Knuckles Chaotix...

    So Sam Procrastinates has finally uploaded his review on Origins.. as someone who has (and still does) work with SEGA, I’m really hoping that his words really gets to someone’s attention there because he really did not hold back on the issues that are plaguing the collection itself, from the bugs to the music choices, etc.

    This game is in serious need of some patches and fingers crossed that Sam’s review will rectify this.. accountability needs to be held and taken seriously so that future games don’t go through the same time crunch that Origins did.. it’s a slap in the face to Headcannon and the quality of the Taxman ports

    Was there a patch? Just playing S3K as Knuckles in mirror mode and the "infinite rubble" glitch in Marble Garden is gone. (this is on PS5 btw)

    I haven't beaten Story Mode yet, but when you beat it, can you go back and pick a level from any game you want?

    I pretty much agree with everything he said. I love his reviews.

    Not from the Story Mode menu, that'll just take you back to the last level of Sonic 3. But it will unlock them all for Anniversary Mode in the "My Data & Ranking" menu.

    Will that also give me all the emeralds I collected? So if I got all Chaos Emeralds in Sonic 2, I can still go Super Sonic and if I got all Super Emeralds in 3 & Knuckles, I can go Hyper Sonic?

    No, that's meant more as a time attack menu, and won't give you all the emeralds. Unfortunately, the only game with a save feature that lets you return to earlier stages is S3&K. The original mobile versions of Sonic 1 and 2 let you do this, but Origins doesn't. Which sucks, I was driven to make "perfect" save files in the mobile versions, but there's very little incentive to get the emeralds when you can't keep them in subsequent playthroughs.

    The easiest way to replay the games with Super/Hyper forms is to just replicate what you'd do with the original carts: Enable level select from the title screen, then play 4, 1, 2, 6 in Sound Test to get all the emeralds. But there's no way to save in this mode.

    Speaking of level select, you can also use it to make Sonic 1 resemble its original version more, with no spin dash and a ground/air speed cap. Or you can enable 7 emeralds and Super forms! Sonic 1 and 2 also both feature an option for Sonic 3 elemental shields!

    Yeah, I have no idea why this stuff couldn't just be unlockable in the remakes from the beginning. :V

    Wow, they took out the save option from the 1 and 2 mobile ports? That was my favorite thing was having a completed Sonic 1 and 2 save and just playing levels I really liked. There was no reason to remove that. I guess I won't play through Sonic 3 & Knuckles in Story Mode and actually play it via the game select since I want to keep a save of that.

    No new update for PS5. Perhaps the glitch does not occur in mirror mode?

    Oversights as usual. I was hoping these would be options, like how they turned the Mobile choices for CD into new in-game menu options, but instead they stripped out Sonic 2's Options altogether without expanding. It's baffling that a lot of things like this exist and it's almost like Sega didn't even realize they were still there or something, especially in regards to Classic Mode.

    The trailers outright advertise using Super Sonic in Sonic 1, but you can only get the 7 Emeralds and thus Super by Level Select. Why not just make that the automatic choice in Anniversary, maybe while also stripping out Roll Jump Lock, and then reinstate all the old rules and 6 Emeralds for Classic?

    I wonder if they were having problems getting the save menus to work properly so instead of fixing it they just removed it all together.
