I knew that the IDW comic would be set in a new continuity that is not connected to either original or reboot incarnation of the Archie run.

Well yeah there's way too much Behind the scenes baggage. I'm sure somewhere down the line we could get a Regeneration 1 style deal (Hopefully better than Regeneration 1 is from what I've heard) going.

Because I love the Freedom Fighters and I'm one of the handful of people that enjoyed the Shattered World Saga. Yeah it dipped a little in the Search for the keys and the final fight was basically a Lets Play but it was a delight to read. Well what I could. Not having money really messed me up around the end.

No firesale... does that mean Archie aren't allowed to sell their back stock, and must instead send it all to be pulped?

Without knowing the publishing agreement they made, we don't know. They are currently able to still sell what is already in stores and digital versions until that runs out as that is not producing new content (license agreement). Most deals allow some leeway time for a publisher to clear out their stock before the next company starts to produce theirs.

However Archie and Sonic have a lot of issues that may prevent them from doing anything like that. Increased royalty costs, bad press, an effort to downplay the loss, and so forth. As is, they hadn't produced any new physical products nor added to their back stock since the last Mega Drive issue, so who knows even how many they still have left.

Well, issue 291 of the main title was close to being published before it was cancelled two weeks before its planned publication.

Yeah, that comic may well have been printed, and just sat in the warehouse for six months.

The new Sonic Mania stuff looks neat. I'm a bit weirded out by the return of Blue Spheres though. Tails' and Knuckles' sprites in Blue Spheres look inferior to the S3&K Blue Spheres sprites, which is baffling. This could still be pre-release stuff though, but given it's so close to release, I'm not sure.

The Special Stage Ring also looks weird, since it's a 3D Ring in a 2D playing field, but I guess that makes sense, since you are literally hopping from 2D to 3D in the special stage.

Minor niggles aside, I'm looking forward to this a lot.

The main Special Stage also looks like a weird combination of the ones from Sonic CD and the Saturn version of 3D Blast. The Blue Sphere bonus stage apparently awards you with medals for completing it but I'm not sure what if anything they actually do in the game.

Huh. Exact same level layout as in Sonic 3 and Knuckles. Maybe getting all the medals unlocks the lock-on mode you got when plugging Sonic 1 into Sonic and Knuckles?

The PC version of Sonic Mania has been delayed by two weeks.

In other news, the switch version has been leaked, so if your avoiding spoilers, be extra cautious.

You know you can embed them, right? The code is

They did originally, but changed it to just the links likely to avoid spoiling people who didn't want to see it so if you'd could go ahead and take those out of your quote that'd be great...

I wasn't sure if the embedding thing was working properly, so decided to change it. And the spoiler aspect too.

I dunno Tails. Tomatopotamus 2 gets a little too much love in my opinion. Tomatopotamus 3 is where I'm at.

Embedding always works, as long as we don't use youtu.be addresses.

Thanks for spoiling shit. Tried to scroll off of stuff as quickly as possible, but still saw some stuff.

Really appreciate it.
