    It keeps telling me I need to put in my credit card info (I entered it two or three times), so I guess it's not going to take it. Is there somewhere to just buy like a 30AUD eShop code?

    This is apparently not working for most people. My credit card worked but everyone else says it's region locked and gives them an error. My friend bought an AUS eShop card here which worked, though: https://www.offgamers.com/game-card/consoles/nintendo-eshop-card-au

    The PS4 Version. I haven't read the reviews, might be spoilers.

    And it's gone back up to 86 :v:

    Looks like most reviews will be for PS4.

    And all the mixed reviews all just echo the same lame shit "Sonic was never that good" we've seen before (read: I suck at 2D platforming games)

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    That seems to be the gist of it. One complaint I read was that "making Sonic hit prickly things till you have no more rings is a questionable design choice" and all I thought was "...git gud?". Seems like a lot of people can only handle 2D platformers that kill you as soon as you hit something.

    Hahaha people are creating Australian acounts to get the game sooner, I can just imagine the headlines.

    "Sonic Mania sells poorly in America".

    "Australian's economy boosted by 2% due to digital video game sales".

    The fact the lowest review is a 6/10 is honestly pretty good, there aren't any outright bad reviews for Mania.

    I'm so happy and I'm dying with excitement :v:

    Even calling that a 6/10 is kind of disingenuous (it was 3 out of 5 stars) as reviewers typically don't treat 5-star scales the same way they do the typical 7-10 I mean 1-10 scale.
     
  12. Just got hit pretty hard by spoilers on youtube. Was hoping binge watching the thick of it comps and earthworm jim soundtracks for about a week would help. It didn't.

    One more day. Credit card worked!

    I was telling a friend about Mania for a while and he kept saying "Lol, Sonic's been shit for decades, the game will suck, they always end up sucking".

    Well guess what, Mania's getting critical praise :v:
     
  14. Nice, glad this is getting some good reviews (haven't read any mind) been surprisingly easy for me to avoid spoilers. Guess I'm not connected to many Sonic related social media accounts like allot of you. Bonus

    Just need the sales now, then we can look forward to a Mania 2 with all-new zones

    Played 30 minutes of the Switch version, it's absolutely fantastic. The level design is INSANE. People are going to be playing this multiple times to see all the various paths and secrets.

    Good news on my part - My brother (who is currently having an extended stay in Scotland, and left the console here) has allowed me to borrow his PS4 for the week, giving me a chance to play the game at release.

    Countdown timer is at 5 Hours 18 minutes on the console currently, so I assume UK midnight release is go?

    Great to see it's faring well critically. We just need to see the all-important sales numbers.
