Thank fuck it saves!!!

Also thank fuck it ain't as clashy as the original. Seems to render quite well on the R9-270 card.

It feels wonderful, though.
Every time the Press Garden boss killed me, (Lots!) I knew it was because I was frantically jumping around the screen like a crazy hedgehog, and not calmly, strategically fighting properly.
So far, I haven't found myself cursing the game for having "cheated" me out of lives.

I've got to the Studiopolis stage so far. Only got the game yesterday so got a lot to learn.

I've had it since Day1, but unfortunately, every time I pick up the Switch to play it, I end up playing Zelda for a couple of hours!!!
Oops

Now that we've got a Sonic reboot, I wonder if Nintendo will ever do a SMB reboot.

A) It's not a reboot. It's most definitely designed to be the sequel to Sonic&Knuckles.
(Note the floors in the lift, along with all the other signs along the way)

B) Nintendo have ->NEW<- Super Mario Bros. That's pretty much the same idea, except they went with 3D models instead of 2D Sprites. But it's a nice enough set of games.

We just need Sega to realise that 2D sonic is as popular as it is.
I can only hope that when Sonic Forces arrives, it gets shitty sales so that Sega look at Mania and go "Oh, FFS, OK!! We'll do that.. GAWD!!"

The absolute worst that can (and probably will) happen is that Sega go "Yes, but Forces sold extremely well within the 2-5 year old demographic, and that's who we're targeting, so we'll do more of that and scrap this crazy fangame idea."

Most of my successes have been of the "Keep jumping.. FUCK !! Keep Jumping!!!!" variety.
