You can use the level select cheat, it's real easy.

Spoiler:
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric - Part II

Also, this game wants to be Persona 5 SO DAMN BADLY.


Yeah, this game's gonna suck.

How is that anything like Persona? You really are out of your mind.

Sonic Mania is now available to download on Steam. Can't wait to play.

......are you trying to say Sonic Forces is trying to be Persona when the button prompt comes up? Also, that gameplay video you posted is similar to Sonic Colors and not Boom, which leads me to believe you've just resorted to sh*tposting at this point and have no clue to what you're talking about.

Feast your eyes.



Observe the bland colors, the crappy frame rates, the stilted animation(s), and the god awful (and consistently annoying) dialogue. Then watch the video above. Can you see the resemblance?

Sonic Forces is Sonic Boom's twin brother.

Are you really going to excuse Sega's pathetic excuse of a video game, let alone justify its current state? 'Cause I won't.

Until Sega can make an acceptable and exceptional Sonic game, I think I'll continue voicing my contempt.

'Kay?

So this game can bring out the worst even in peace-preaching Papenbrook! So you are human after all.

So it turns out the PC version WAS delayed for DRM. There isn't even a mention of the DRM on the Steam page even though games with it are required to mention it. Worst yet, the game can't be played offline, you need a constant internet connection to play it. Also, the same bugs and glitches from the console versions are in the PC version so all that talk about "optimization" issues was a lie and worse Sega didn't notify it's consumers about the DRM until well after many of it's customers purchased it.

How is it that even when Sega has a good game on their hands, one with glowing reviews and praise that Sega hasn't had in years, they seem to go out of their way to screw it up. Thankfully they will allegedly fix the always online issue.

In regards to DRM.

Like you, we've noticed an error in the Steam store not mentioning the DRM for Sonic Mania.

We're fixing that now.

Sonic Mania is intended to be played offline and we're investigating reports on that.

We're also investigating other issues like controller support, these are all PC specific things that Christian and the team have been working on these last few weeks

Please bare with us while we collate and investigate problems that are being brought to our attention

Even one of the developers, the team didn't have any involvement with the DRM by the way, is unhappy with this situation:

A Persona 5 skin. Huh. I guess you were right to some extent.

Sega and Atlus had a baby.

They're just begging for attention at this point.

Wake me up when the complaining dies out.

It seems my hopes for an idea of a Sonic SATAM type game was realized with Forces. Eggman taking over. Sonic having to form a team. A possible create-a-character, it's all there. If I find a quote of that, I'll edit it in.

Outside that, I am trying to play other Sonic games since the most recent one I played was Generations. Don't have the money for Lost World, Fire and Ice, or Shattered Crystal on the 3DS (I'd honestly pass anyways).

Also, although it'll be a while before I play it, I love the Sonic Mania soundtrack so far from what I heard.

Does anyone else find the 40 dollar price tag alarming? I mean, recent Sonic games never really felt worth the full price tag, but for a Sonic game starring 3 protagonists, what's up? It's like Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces together make up a full product. They've been hyping this game like it's some sort of comeback for Sonic and it doesn't warrant the 60 dollar price tag? I'm not complaining, but I just fear for the length and quality of the product, well, even more so than before.
