PC version was releases on the 29th, and includes always online DRM Denuvo.
Because of this, the PC version is being seriously metabombed by consumers.

I wasn’t happy with the microtransactions hidden in the emerald hills zone. Takes an age to find it only to then have to pay for the privledge.

Can someone please tell what the film with the weird helmet-wearing guys on a boat is?

This was a great review, and also made me think about a subtle reference inside Mania that you might appreciate.
Small spoilers for Mania below:
After you defeat the Studiopolis Act 2 Boss, the TVs in the background stop broadcasting and go to an Eggman-themed default page, and start producing a buzzing noise. To sort of indicate that something went wrong and you broke the feed by defeating the boss.
The buzzing noise that these TVs make is the EXACT SAME noise as the buzzing from the 25th Anniversary livestream.
Going back and listening to them both, they’re practically identical.

It’s a cool review in any case, thanks for it.

also Youtube is banned at work.

Since I know lots of people have been asking for it for these video reviews, and since I prefer written as well, and since I was bored, here’s a transcript: Sonic Mania did not have the most auspicious start, announced as it was during Sega’s 25th anniversary Sonic celebration; not so much a celebration as a glimpse into the soul of Satan himself. Nonetheless, an all new Sonic platformer aping the visual style and the level design of the original Genesis classics, with levels both remixed from the past, and designed from scratch, was incredibly tempting. So the question comes,… Read more »
