Seriously, you're seeing a price tag as a bad sign now?

That's equal to 33.49 in US dollars, that's cheap compared to its current $39.99 price in the states.

It can go either way with price. Possibility one is that they either know it's bad or they don't have a lot of confidence in it, so the price is to attract as many people as they can before everyone figures out it's not great and sales drop off. That's the cynical possibility, but could be the case. When Ride to Hell: Redemption re-appeared out of the ether with a bargain basement price and next to no preview, it was not a good sign and the game itself bore that out. Possibility two is other principle, where you price it low to get people to try it and hope they like what they see so they'll buy later games. In this case, maybe with the goal of repairing Sonics reputation.

We'll see. It's about a month out. Though it does feel like the game is being held pretty close to the vest for being this close.

I love the idea of the level, Eggman retrofitting ancient ruins into a bustling Casino is such an Eggman thing he'd do...it's just a shame nothing in the level besides the background conveys this. Seriously, you could've replaced the background with a city and nothing would be out of place or lost. Why not let Sonic swing on those vines or have him bounce off cobwebs or something. There's nothing in this stage hasn't been done better before and where are the enemies? I only saw one and Sonic never even got close to it. I wasn't very fond of the physics in Generations but at least Sonic gained momentum when going down slopes...you know, something even the 8-bit games were able to do.

I really don't like being negative, but when the best level shown so far feels lifeless, bland and unoriginal especially compared to anything in Mania what am I supposed to express? The music was alright...so that's another positive I guess.

[Takunaga] has spent a lot of time going in deep on how [Sonic Mania] feels and how it moves,” game director Morio Kishimoto told me. “In that aspect, Classic Sonic stages have taken some reference to Sonic Mania because it’s been a very great help at looking into Classic Sonic.”
....and yet they couldn't get something as simple as Sonic gaining momentum down hills right. But they seem to compensate this by putting invisible speed boosters right before slopes. If Sonic Team is truly having trouble duplicating the physics and game play of the classic games, then they can ether ask members of the Mania team for help or consult the Sonic Physics Guide. But to be fair, some fans have noticed that Sonic gains speed down slopes when rolling like in Sonic 1, it dosn't excuse the invisible speed boosters, but it does mean Sonic can gain momentum down hills. But why would you base the physics on Sonic 1 instead of the much improved Sonic 2 and 3 & Knuckles? That would be like if Nintendo based the physics of the New Super Mario Bros games off the original Super Mario Bros instead of the much improved controls from Super Mario World- oh wait the joke is that's exactly what they did.

Here's some more game play:

The game is still 55 dollars Canadian, but I guess anytime something negative about the game comes out is music to your ears since you want it to fail so badly.

What is your favourite on screen portrayal of Sonic? It could be tv shows, movies or video games.

My personal favourite is Jaleel White's portrayal of Sonic in the first two animated shows (Adventures and SatAm).

I'm fondest of Roger Craig Smith, the current voice actor, and Booms version of Sonic, which has his flaws, but is generally a good dude and actually pretty funny.

The video game version is generally up there, but has had his ups and downs. There was a solid decade there were the default portrayal of Sonic was "disaffected ass" who was a clear attempt to be cool that went so far that he just felt like a dick.

PSN trophies leaking would be more of a Sony failure. This actually happens from time to time. It's not just Sonic.

I gotta say Jaleel White's Sonic voice is the best one - very unique, it captures the youthful and carefree spirit of Sonic. The others are passable albeit a bit generic imo.

Hard to say, Jaleel White, Jun'ichi Kanemaru and Ryan Drummond are definitely in my top three. I also really liked Jason Griffith, in particular that cocky chuckle he gave to Sonic.

There hasn't really been any actor for Sonic I haven't liked, with Sonic's Schoolhouse being an exception. I don't really like Roger Craig Smith, on one hand I don't think I can accurately give my opinion on his take because he hasn't been in a story that didn't leave me sighing and rolling my eyes, but on the other hand I think his voice is too deep and gruff for a high-speed youthful teenager.

I would prefer if Robbie Daymond was Sonic's voice actor. However, Roger Craig Smith is doing an exceptionally fine job as Sonic.

Anyway, I found out Infinite's possible identity.
