    That June 1st date bellow the barcode probably means something. Will we be getting more information about Sonic Forces on that day? Also that day happens to be my 8th anniversary since my girlfriend and I started dating too. :v:

    Just tried it a few times. No luck.
     
  4. I only just realised today what some of the clues leading up to the Mania announcement last year meant.
    "The secret is inside the empire" -> "The secret is inside the pixel empire"
    "Life is rarely black and..." -> "Life is rarely black and white"

    "That which is missing" indicates "Pixel" and "White" are the key words. It was hinting at a new PIXEL-art Sonic game made by WHITEhead.
    How did I not understand this until now?

    Well, if you add the numbers up you get 24, or if you split it into 4, 2 digit numbers you get 150.

    What could it mean :specialed:

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    Sentient cash register reporting for duty. If I'm not mistaken, this is UPC-A (Periodicals) and the missing numbers should read 0 99567 10116 02 9... but I'm not fully confident on the first four digits. The second part to the right indicates that this is a periodical barcode. The "02" there means this is the second issue of its year... a bit at odds with "DISPLAY UNTIL June 1, 2017".

    I'm pretty sure this barcode doesn't mean anything. I would not be surprised if they used a barcode from a real magazine, tweaked it a bit, and got rid of the numbers to make it unscannable.

    Edit: I read it wrong. D'oh! It's 092567102266. This is a February issue of A&E Home Video People Style Watch Magazine.

    Quick, someone locate that magazine and combine the first letter of every article into a sentence.

    We're through the looking glass here people :specialed:

    Agreed. Seems to be some sort of DaVinci's Code.

    Someone call Jack Bauer. We must know who's behind it all

    So when're we going to get to the point of ringing A&E Home Video People Style Watch Magazine and asking them what's going on? :v:

    Bloody hell. I did not expect that at all. How can Aaron and Co get away with this? It's just so good, but I honestly would have expected someone at SEGA or Sonic Team to get their knickers in twist. This game is still relatively recent!

    Eh they know what they did. If they didn't we wouldn't be getting Sonic Mania.

    Sure. But it's still funny. I'm glad that they're okay with this kind of self-deprecating humour. It gives a very positive impression about their current approach to the franchise.

    Way I figure it, there's gotta be some sort of statute of limitations when it comes to what's fair game and what's not.

    Episode 1 is 6 almost 7 years old now, I figure that's distant enough to make fun of. That's opposed to Rise of Lyric that's a little more recent and the wounds are a bit more fresh; but honestly, there's so little memorable stuff about that game besides the infinite jumping Knuckles glitch that people will probably even remember about it a few years from now. Doesn't have that so bad it's good charm like Sonic '06, and doesn't reek of failed expectations like S4.

    How did you not expect it when they did the same joke with '06 last year :v:
