    That's so dumb. Didn't the music industry's early attempts at digital teach anybody anything?

    I don't see how that's possible when there's no 4:3 aspect available.

    That thought came to my mind almost immediately when I saw how big it was. I won't have time to fool with it until the holidays probably though.

    Yes, this game is solid. Like how they stuck to the traditional sonic format. I've only played this for a bit but so far I like it very much.

    Man the last two Zones are tough. I love this game. Now that I beat it I got to go back and get all the chaos emeralds and unlock the extras. And do a Knuckles playthrough.
    Hit detection. it's all about hit detection.

    We're talking about Nintendo here, the most ass-backwards consumer-facing company on the planet.

    I just saw that the PC version uses Denuvo for DRM, so I guess Sega is pretty dumb in this department, too.

    Yup. I was looking forward to buying Sonic Mania tonight for PC. Now I'm not buying it. I'll wait until I have a current console.

    What is the issue with Denuvo? Isn't that found in a lot of games?

    AFAIK, it's particularly bad because it's difficult to remove from your computer, even if you've uninstalled the game(s) it came with.

    Not trying to be argumentative, but I think the same can be said for a lot of DRM.

    I think the folks reviewing this negatively on Steam just want something to get worked up over.

    I'm not a big PC gamer. So I don't have a ton of Steam games. But of what I do have, none has DRM that installs itself onto my system. If I already had some BS in there, I wouldn't mind so much. But taking that leap is a big turn-off.

    I got the "bad" ending the other day. Now I'm going back to get the rest of the chaos emeralds. The lava reef is my least favorite stage. It feels poorly designed compared to the rest of the game.

    There's truth to that. It is the internet, afterall. But my concern lies with the ability to play the game long into the future. And I can see why a lot of people are turned-off to the idea that they need to download extra software which only adds limitations to a game they actually paid for. The pirates will just wait for a cracked version down the road.

    Also, I'd like to be able to play the game through wine on Linux, and my guess is that this DRM makes that difficult. But that's just a guess.

    Actually there is a hidden 4:3 mode if you enable developer options apparently, but it still has black bars at the top and bottom when played in 15k/240p.

    Not my photos or videos (found these on a shmups thread), but check it out:

    No, but I'm sure you could use an external app to add them.

    The PC version has scanlines, two different choices in fact.
