    • Welp, I have Sonic 3 and S&K from the Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection, so I don't have to worry about my progress getting deleted. Also, at the beginning, I didn't see Sonic CD game labelled as a sonic port. It was just all the classics, there is Sonic 1 and Sonic 2, but i dont see CD that much anymore

    • @BlazeHedgehog uh... okay? Whatever that means. I didn’t “poison” anything by satirically writing that I didn’t know that Michael had died and that we could just ask him if the games could’ve been released, which, I don’t even think Michael Jackson would have the final word on whether the game could be re released with the original soundtrack, he’d have to consult the other ones that he worked with, including those currently threatening Sega, which leads me to believe that they wouldn’t be so lenient on it. Plus, what do you mean that my stupid joke wouldn’t pass as comedy around here? I’d understand if my joke was some stupid unoriginal shock value offensive edgy joke and you would condemn it, but it wasn’t even that.

  • Sonic 3 a.i.r. is pointless, I'll never touch that game unless it contains sonic 3 complete. You may as well just play the original tacked on game or just complete, air should go out of it's way to include complete as a standard.

  • I suggest Picodrive 3ds for playing any Sonic games on 3ds. The sound chip sounds the same, too. Like exactly the same. Plus (on a mew 3ds) it runs at 59.9 fps most of the time, sometimes going up to 61.2 fps. It's real great, I suggest it.

  • Sega Vintage Sonic 2? Wow M2 is terrible. Sega Vintage is the worst porting I have ever seen in my life.

    FxG SpartanFxG Spartan27 dagar sedan
    • Not exactly. It's a little confusing, but early Sega Vintage games (2007-era) were done by Backbone Entertainment. Later games, labeled "Sega Vintage Collection", which bundled 2-3 games in one release, were by M2 (2011-2012 era). Backbone Entertainment sucked. They did lots of quick and dirty retro game re-releases back then and they all cut corners in one way or another.

  • Aw man I'm sad for sonic 3 cause I play it a lot on my dads old Genesis and I l LOVE the music, visuals, and gameplay and it deserves more recognition than just being treated as nothing. Stupid Sega, I love there games and I think there cooler than olé family friendly Nintendo over there but, REALY, ACTING LIKE OF THE MOST INFLUENTUAL/BEST SONIC GAMES OF ALL TIME LIKE IT DOESN'T EXIST IS JUST STUPID.

  • Instead of playing Sonic 1 & 2 on a phone with a controller, which I find uncomfortable and inconvenient, I play those games though an android emulator on my PC. I use Bluestacks in case you're wondering. This way I don't have to look at a tiny screen while playing with a controller. You don't even have to buy the games if you don't want to, you can just find the APK for each game.

  • Just got Sega's Genesis collection on Steam, because Sonic 2 was free. 1.5GB!!, for utter crap ware! Find any other platform you can for Sonic. taxman + stealth versions of Sonic 1 + 2, on mobile, are fantastic. Add a game pad or keyboard though.

  • I don't do piracy anymore as well. What I did was buy Sonic 3 and Knuckles on Steam and call it a day. Now that I have officially purchased the game and Sega has my money on it, I give myself the right to play it via emulation. Since I don't play that much on PC, I'll play on my Wii with an emulator. They really don't care about how you play these classic games. While they know that console companies get hurt by people not buying the official, let's say, PS4 emulated port, what they want and need is money for each copy of the game. And that's like that because porting a game bundled with an emulator from one console to another, especially in these days, is as easy as pie. It takes virtually no effort to export a PS4 and Xbox One version of Sonic 3 for example. Emulators do the job better than most official efforts so the only real reason (aside from "eh, yoU're pIratiNG yerE GunnAh get cAugTh") to still buy a 26 years old ROM bundled with an emulator is moral consciousness. It's not right to get a game for free if the company has put a legal way to get it for cheap and it's expecting money from it just as it is stupid to make costumers buy the same game twice when many other good companies like Microsoft ensures that you can play the same game on both your PC and console without the ridiculous need of buying it twice and you are able to play your 100+ years old games in the console you just bought becausd they know it's not right to ask for money for the same game twice in your gaming consumer's life. That's why I praise Microsoft. I hope they keep it up. But you helped me understand how bad piracy really is and how it should be treated.

Glad to see you're practical instead of moralist. Also, I just came from your Definitive SADX video, and I'm only halfway through this one, but I can already tell the quality of your content is top notch. Keep doing your thing, man, we need more talented content creators like you in the Sonic community. I hope your channel blows up soon, you deserve it!

    • No, that's not how music licensing works, unfortunately. Michael Jackson's estate would likely have some claim over the notes themselves. As long as you were playing those notes in that sequence, it doesn't matter if they're remixed, remastered, or whatever, because they will still own the song.

  • I've said this several times already, but I think that the Switch versions of Sonic 1 & 2 are the definitive versions of those games. To be honest, I think the widescreen looks unnatural, and I don't see being able to play as Tails and Knuckles in Sonic 1 as a major addition because that game wasn't designed with their abilities in mind.

    Alder613Alder6135 månader sedan
    • I can't see how the Switch ports are the best way to play these games since they're just ported versions of the Mega Drive games. And how exactly is widescreen support unnatural? In fact it actually makes the 2D games better because you can further see what's ahead of you And yeah they didn't change the game that much to have different paths for Tails and Knuckles but they're still good additions to Sonic 1

  • Any issue now, after Micheals’s death, would be a cash grab from some company or his estate for (royalties I guess? If they even claim to ownership of the music, which they don’t, right?) And it’s be no money since the games would MAKE much money. It’s just for a loving community. It’s so curious.

    • @BlazeHedgehog The "jew" thing? Yeah, it was a typo 🤣. I'm not trashing the retro engine ports (those are great!), I'm saying that there are multiple audiences when it comes to porting retro games, and the M2 ports cover really well the segment which prefer the closest to the original as you can get. For example, while playing with an M2 port, you can even hear the synthesizer going for a little bit after pausing the game, just like the Genesis, and that type of players really love that kind of details. Both types of ports cover different segments of an already particular target audience. Thankfully, the original Sonic trilogy aged really, really well. Anyway, I liked your video, it was the most informative of all I have seen about the Sonic 3 complication.

    • You can still get nostalgia from something like Sonic 3 A.I.R. and you can make the past better. Often, old things are worse than you remember, so why not add a little something special as an extra? Nobody said you have to suffer through your memories. It's not like Sonic 3 A.I.R. is really THAT different, either. I wouldn't call these visuals "HD" when they're still using the same pixel graphics from the Genesis version. Also, I hope that's a typo you made there.

  • A Sonic 3 prototype came out a few months back featuring Genesis versions of the tracks that would eventually appear on S&K Collection. It suggests that these were the original tracks before Michael Jackson and his entourage joined the team. Not gonna lie, some of these like Launch Base Zone Act 2 and Carnival Night Act 2 are certified bops and better than the originals.

  • Excellent video. Thank you for the info. I had no idea this was possible and always wanted a Christian Whitehead release for Sonic 3. This is pretty unbelievable. I only just discovered Thug Pro last week so this has been an excellent several days where satisfying my retro gaming needs is concerned.

  • In fairness the Steam classics emulators do have issues. The emulation isn't why you want to buy the PC collection. You want it for legal access to rom files and associated rom hacks available in Steamworks. Having the ability to buy romsets wholesale, to use in any emulator you wish, is a wonderful novelty. Playing rom hacks of fan translated Bare Knuckle 3

    • 1.0.0. version Revenge of Shinobi, or "Sonic 3 Complete" to play in Steams official emulator, or outside of it, all legally, is icing.

  • And what do you have to say about Sonic 3 being available on the Microsoft Store that was released 15 days before Michael Jackson's death?

    • Michael Jackson's death isn't what caused any of this.

  • Thank you for notifying me that the Sega Genesis Classics collection is mediocre. I was considering buying it for the Streets Of Rage trilogy but it won't be worth it if the audio is terrible, especially if the legendary soundtrack has been soiled.
