Yay, more DeBlob \o/
One of best new IPs this gen. I hope this one rocks as much as the first one.

edit: Oh, and enough with the River City sport games :mad: Just make new WiiWare River City Ransom.

Really want to see that Sonic Colors feature. Are scans still banned? I guess that might be a stupid question. :lol
Yes, they are. But most Sonic sites are hyped up about the new game, so I'm sure with Google you'll find them quickly enough.

that was the preview, now subscribers are getting the mag
Though I think in that same preview thread the rest of the info was posted:..at least it will be less cluttered than in the other thread.
Sonic Colors

* different colored wisps mean different power-ups
* power-ups only last for a limited time
* yellow wisp = drill
* drill for burrowing underground or speeding through water
* green wisp = laser
* use laser to zip across the screen and destroy enemies
* 7 or 8 wisps in all
* carry 1 wisp at a time
* activate by flicking the Wiimote
* gauge at the bottom of the screen shows how much longer the power-up will last
* yellow wisp lasts about 10 seconds
* red wisp = fireball
* red wisp is only in the DS version
* red wisp allows you to boost in any direction, give access to new heights
* red wisp allows you to ignite a rocket platform
* unique boss battles in both versions
* Wii bosses do pop up in DS title
* tilt Nunchuk to drift around corners
* during the demo that Nintendo Power played, roughly 70% of the gameplay was 2.5d
* 3D perspective for speed portions, 2.5D perspective for more platforming-based action
* tons of hidden paths
* some hidden paths can only be accessed via use of certain wisps
* mysterious emblems are scatted about levels, with their purpose being unknown
* if drill power-up runs out while you're drilling underground, you'll die
* antennas will warp you to new sections of a level, if you have the laser wisp
* rocket wisp as well.

* co-op mode with second Wiimote pointer

scans and information have been out for this issue for the last three days. When even had a pretty big thread about it here.

Even though that was the preview thread we still posted all the information there.
My bad then, i stopped checking that thread because I thought people were still going on about the sonic cycle, oh wells.

de blob: Underground
Set in Prisma City once again fighting Comrade Black.
Better in every way to de blob- looks better, plays better, more variety and depth.
Go indoors/underground- subways, drainage areas these sections have 2-d platforming. More structured levels, must complete story missions to get thru 3 sectors of stage.
More variety in missions- multiobjectives.
12 levels feature new gameplay elements like wind cannons, piston-jump platforms.
Blob earns new moves and upgrades by collecting inspiration points.
Upgrades include increase amount of paint you carry, boost number of lives, increase frequency you perform special moves.
Co-op mode ala galaxy, multiplayer versus mode.
Spring 2011 release.
Halfbrick does ds version set between events of two wii titles. Sidescrolling, 2-d, nemesis is Dr. Von Blot- Black's top scientist. Comic-book style cutscenes, exclusive dsi minigame,
no touch controls

Sounds fantastic.


First game went underappreciated. Chillest OST ever, as well.
