So after some struggle I finally got to finish all blue sphere stages and got all medalions.

It's true what they say about practice makes perfect. After finishing with only one gold medal, I played again and even got three more.

Honestly, I am going to skip encore mode. For all I've seen it's just Mania but with screwed system for lifes and less giant rings. Not worthy the troubles of playing the special stages again...

You're not missing much, the levels are remixed slightly but otherwise the only real change is the addition of a short intro stage on Angel Island at the very beginning and a brand new first act for Mirage Saloon, that's it. All the other changes like the new stage transitions and a different final phase for the Metal Sonic fight are also present in Mania mode.

I've heard about that metal sonic fight. How do I get it? The only I get is that one with MS turning into a big bot.

Yeah, but I get that one on Mania mode. How do I get the version where I must run from the spikes?

You can't this version got overwrite by an update from Sega part. Instead Metal Sonic merge with the phantom ruby and become Giga Metal.

The spike phase of the fight was easy to exploit as well since any lost rings get pushed along by the spikes, I prefer it the way it is now since it can be challenging to get the timing of the attacks right.

Yes, that was my point. The final phase of the fight was changed in all modes. As for the spikes, you can't anymore. It got changed with the patch that added in Encore mode and the other Plus content.

The STC Online special "Exit: Sonic" from STC scribe Nigel Kitching is out

http://www.stconline.co.uk/comics/exitsonic/


spoilers:
Sonic is speeding along when Tails catches up to him. Sonic is feeling a bit under the weather but goes with him to meet up with the remaining Freedom Fighters. We learn Amy is now a mother to a son that she's named after Johnny Litefoot...but while the father of the child is unknown, she is in a relationship with BFF Tekno the Canary and Sonic is Johnny's godfather.

Sonic hasn't been feeling too well, and Porker Lewis has set up a chaos dialysis machine for him. Doctor Robotnik is a prisoner and is seemingly insane. Knuckles reveals Robotnik came through the group's Chaos Emerald Array, having been trapped in a Chaos vortex for many years. Porker explains the assembled chaos emeralds apparently drew Robotnik back to their world, since he too is made of Chaos energy.

Robotnik suddenly ambushes the freedom fighters, revealing that he had used a homing device hidden in his tooth to bring his faithful ally Grimmer to the headquarters so he could free him..and Grimmer brought a friend as well...Super Sonic!

Super Sonic destroys the diallisis machine, Porker traps him in a stasis field and attempts to repair what he destroyed and partially succeeds, but the effort drains all the power in the room, leading to emergency power being run. Robotnik cheers on Super Sonic, but the unstable hedgehog murders Grimmer and almost Robotnik as well. Super Sonic chokes out regular Sonic, Porker blasts him with chaos energy but it's seemingly too late and Sonic is killed

But...PLOT TWIST, the dialysis machine was siphoning chaos energy from Sonic and storing it within the chaos emeralds, Porker revealed this was the cause of Sonic's illness. Robotnik steadily recovers...but he's now reverted back to his old self, Doctor Kintober. He rambles on about phase fields and quantium frequencies, and Poker reveals that's exactly what he did to merge Super Sonic and Sonic together, restoring Sonic to full health!

The story's epilogue sees Kintober moving his equipment to the floating island, where it's revealed his old Robotnik persona has been saved to computer. Kintober shuts the computer down

Read the preview for IDW's 10th issue... And I read "Resistance".

I thought they'd take the opportunity of a new continuity to do something else with the stories?

The film won't be released in theaters for another 11 months, but Paramount released a motion poster today. We also get somewhat of look at how Sonic will appear in the film.

I hope that's not the model they're going with because that looks kind of terrible to be honest (it looks more like a guy in a suit wearing a Sonic head).

There is no fucking excuse for this... even if we haven't seen the entire design because LOLZ silhouetted to try and hype us, this isn't going to end well. Sonic's design is timeless, there is little updating needed. You want to give him the detective Pikachu treatment? Fine. But this is going a bit further than necessary.

My faith in this has tanked tremendously.

Hell, at least detective Pikachu looked on-model. But yeah, based on everything I've heard so far I'm not even sure it's going to be enjoyable in a "so bad it's good" sense. Jim Carrey as Robotnik might be entertaining at least but otherwise I don't really have a lot of hope for this currently.

Sonic: "Well, my movie's going to suck. But at least Mario can't say he did any better!"

*Detective Pikachu is a hit, prompting another attempt at a Mario film; it proceeds to be a box office hit*

Sonic: "My existence is pain."

2019 is turning into the year of creepy video game films. It's sad when a fan film looks better than that poster. It's really off-putting and even if this turns out to be the best thing ever I'm not going to watch it simply because of the Sonic design.

Seriously, he looks like a a blue-fuzzed giant-headed goblin man who’s completely naked except for a pair of shoes. Who saw this and thought "Yes, this is the design that people want to see". As mentioned above, I have seen fan films that look better than this.
