For anyone that pre-purchased Sonic Mania for Steam or the PC Collector’s Set you might be upset after Sega delayed the game until the 29th—some of us PC users at Sega Nerds were pretty bummed too. Recently, Sega issued an apology letter and will be offering a free Steam copy of Sonic the Hedgehog (1991). Anyone planning on playing Sonic Mania on PS4, Switch, or XBONE should not worry as the game will release in a couple days as planned.
However, PC players might want to use caution when scrolling through social media because we all know how enthusiastic Sonic fans can get—and boy, have fans been excited for Sonic Mania! Here are some temporary solutions to ease the early birds from spoiling the fun:
- For Google Chrome users who frequently use YouTube, download Video Blocker and Keyword Blocker. Both will grant you to remove all videos with specific keywords. In our case you might want to temporarily block anything containing ‘Sonic Mania‘.
- For Firefox users, you might want to check out Firefox Add-on link. You might want to try restoring the classic YouTube layout for it to function properly.
- For Twitter, you might want to temporarily mute some of the followers that you feel might spoil the fun. For Facebook you will have to briefly use the ‘hide all posts’ option for any groups or pages you follow. Or if you must—maybe deactivate your FB for a couple days.
Of course the staff at Sega Nerds will try our best at putting a [spoilers] caption in any given article that might leak possible spoils. We will do our best to keep the PC players at bay.
