    This is just like Gamefreak referred to Pokémon Black & White 2 years ago. If the series wouldn't make it fine, then they'd no longer continue them (on videogames)

    Marketing purposes, that's all.

    Oh. See, the only thing I could have hoped to see in Episode 3 was Knuckles and the Super Emeralds. Poor Knuckles, I don't think he'll ever be part of the main shine again. :(

    do yourself a favor and don't unless you want to be treated to possibly the worst physics ever in a video game :P

    Nah, the physics weren't THAT bad!
    It's not like the glitches in Sonic '06.
    The physics are a little bit less than okay.

    They wanna see how well it sales first. If it sales enough and gets good reviews, we'll be seeing episode 3 I have a feeling,

    Sega doesn't understand episodic content. Episode 2 is an entirely different game on a new and improved engine and it took a while to get this far.

    "My name is Sonic and I know how to spindash! WHOOPS! I was supposed to go forward more than a few feet when I do that, right? Oh, and watch me walk up walls like Christ walks on water!"

    The game can be summed up with a headshake.

    I like how when gamers have problems with a japanese game the devs make an effort to change it. Now had this been a western title and gamers complained we would get a whole bunch of articles from sites like IGN bitching about "Gamer Entitlement" and how we need to shut up an quit our bitching because we have no idea what we're talking about.

    Maybe Sonic 4 is secretly being developed by Valve.

    But anyway, I actually enjoyed the first game. A bit sad to see this go.

    If that's the case, we're definitely never seeing episode 3.

    Exactly. No more episodes after 2 means no episode 3.

    so remaking an old version of game now means its the next in the series? huh?

    oh well, sonic 4 was not very cool to me. it was fun, but ugly.
