    If it makes you guys feel better, there's tons of cool nods and easter eggs here. I'd say they were actually more exciting than the level roster.

    So I'm guessing this is the PC Pre-Order Party Hut where we bang sticks and rocks together until Arron loves us again :( JK dude, thanks for being cool about the delay update too. Nice punch and a hug approach there.

    Even if that was the case ("day two patch" by now?), I still don't see the point of not allowing to keep reporting bugs just in case they weren't caught.

    So I picked up the Switch CE today, and the figure is about what I expected. Really shiny, and hollow, with plastic seams, but I'm satisfied. I obviously wasn't expecting F4F quality for $100, but a guy can dream.

    The stink on the other hand is just offensive... Like, I'm getting into my car and there is this really creepy white van parked next to me, the kind with no windows in the back, and the front windows looked as though they had been yellowed by the sun somehow. Super gross. Anyway, I smell this sick odor, so I stop to listen for a moment, for the faint whimper of a bound child, or the burp of a corpse... So then I am driving away with the windows open, "maybe they are flushing the lines at the abattoir and I'm down wind" I think to myself. Nope, just the Mania CE box.

    But otherwise all looks swell. I'm not going to play it until the weekend, but I'll download it tonight just to make sure I don't have any issues prior to my play date.
     
  5. Yeah I've seen this mentioned by 2 site staff members, but I've never seen it confirmed officially. Perhaps they know something we don't?

    Completely agree. Have a list of bugs I've run into that I'd love to articulate.

    Honestly it seems like there are an alarming number of bugs in the game. During the short time that topic was open, a surprising number of bad bugs were reported.

    I can't say anything about the bugs myself, as I'm still waiting for the PC release. :v:
     
  8. Yeah, the smell of rotting pumpkin is terrible. I kept checking if it was something I stepped in but then realized it was the box.

    My girlfriend noticed the nasty smell when she unboxed my CE too. I didn't notice it until I grabbed my Sonic statue out of the box. :v: As for the game, oh man it's definitely worth the wait PC gamers! I didn't look through the bug list topic yet, as I'm afraid I might get spoiled, but I haven't noticed any glitches on the Xbox One version myself yet.

    Weird, I haven't seen any bugs yet myself. And I'm on the Switch version, mostly through the game at this point. Too bad other people are having bad luck with it.

    Bitching and complaining about my country -.-'
    You all don't get that the smell is a reference to Pumpkin Hill :specialed:

    Seriously though, how come a box smell that bad? Was it the plastic inside, or the box?

    Well, I'm haming it up a bit, but yeah, it's a weird, mild, almost sweet smell. It's off putting... like, have you ever grabbed one of those brown recycled-paper drink holders, then brushed your hand against your face and noticed it smelt like vomit? Well, it's both just like that and totally different. Hopefully the smell fades over time, like my original Malibu Stacey did.

    Well I don't know about anyone else, but I think it's safe to assume there was never a day one patch to begin with.

    Especially if it looks like they're now working on the bugs

    This link is spoiler free, though it was suppose to be a twitter embed.

    If they're fixing the PC thing, is quite logical the day 1 patch becomes the day 15 patch, coming to consoles at the same time PC version becomes available.

    Regarding the smell, my friend and I both opened up a PC Collector's Box, and noticed no smell whatsoever. I'm in the Eastern US, and pre-ordered on Amazon. I did notice our packages both had those little paper bags that are said to keep products smelling fresh in storage. Did you guys have those?

    So, 13 days to go until the PC version comes out.
    Anyone else having fun dodging the spoilers?

    Anyone?

    Alright, better question: is anyone still here waiting?

    As someone who avoided all spoilers until I finally got my grubby hands on my PS4 CE, all I can say is that it was completely worth staying strong, as the game is a pure joyride not knowing what's coming! STAY STRONG

    I'm tempted to go through a playlist with the full soundtrack before I play the game... Which is what I did before Sonic & Knuckles' release.

    Yeah, PC guy here. =P

    I'm waiting too, and it's going well for the most part. While I wait, I'm playing Sonic CD on Steam with the US OST for once, to mix things up, and I want to get all the time stones. (Never done that before.) A lot of the US tracks are better than I remembered!

    The only speedbumps for me are people posting tweets of their bug reports on Twitter, with screenshots. :argh: I wasn't too upset, but I did unfollow at least one person temporarily because of it. Social media is not the most organized place for bug reports anyway, why do it?
