  1. Past hour
  2. Writing quality aside, it's worth remembering that Mephiles is pegged as a character that prefers to manipulate first and personally intervene only when that fails - and one of the cornerstones of manipulation is lying. This wouldn't be the first time lied to try to get someone on his side, or even the most notable, lest we forget Silver was an antagonist in this game purely because he believed Mephiles when told Sonic was the cause of the apocalypse. It's also worth remembering that we only have Mephiles's word that this ever happened in any timeline, and nothing more. Granted, Omega does at one point claim he's the one who captured Shadow in the future, but that's only after a 1 on 1 confrontation with Mephiles, who for all we know simply told Omega that to manipulate him too. So no, I don't think this ever had a chance of happening for real.
  3. I was under the impression he was listening to Eggman because he was feeding him Chaos Emeralds, but that works too. Even if they attacked Tikal and the Chao rather than Chaos himself, who slaughtered them seemingly within moments of revealing himself.
  4. Jet: Ha, being used once in a blue moon means we lived, bitch!
  5. I just realized that Silver is still alive. Cool. His artwork looks game worthy.
  6. Kobe’s death wasn’t something I expected to hear while I was biking today.

    R.I.P. Kobe

  7. Actually, wait. It was all Eggman's fault. Chaos went on a rampage in the last story after been beaten several times by Sonic and co. because Eggman kept making him fight. Up untill that point Chaos didn't displayed any will, he was just a mindless minion. All the beating probably brough back the awfull memory of the Equidna tribe attacking him in the past. Oh, snap. Fucking Eggman. Also, it wasn't Eggman who released Chaos, was it? It's every explained why the M.E. broke?
  8. So. I remember around the time the first trailer dropped, someone’s on here posted a link to a video from a channel named Midnight’S Edge that claimed the movie was going through production trouble. I brought it up, because it seems they took it down.
  9. Plot: Eggman releases water god, Sonic defeats it. It uses the Chaos Emeralds to transform, Super Sonic beats it. Lore revelation: It has connections to the Master Emerald, we learn about that and Knuckles by Proxy.
  10. No? This is a subject that's a bit more sensitive than " I like the funny colored hedgehog because he hit thing good " and while it may involve said funny colored hedgehog its about how this may relate to people in some ways that require a bit more tact. I don't know about you but I don't engage every conversation I have in life the same, sometimes a change in cadence is needed. I feel like that's a fair take? So you have kind of missed the point. I don't think anyone who may relate to any sonic characters think that the characters are quite litterally supposed to be them, but they have relatable aspects about themselves and who they are. They are quite literally built to be that way, and people can find relatable allegories for things in media. I just don't think its ok for someone to dictate what is or isn't appropriate for that person or persons to relate to. Particularly those in some marginalized groups who may see something in someone other perspectives do not. Example: Mai Shirinui ( i think i spelled that right ) ninja boob lady from KOF. I don't like her, I think she's a boring excuse for fan service and a budget chun li. However she's an extremely popular character and one that's really popular with women. There's a lot of women who legit think mai is cool and when they do their popularity contests mai tends to rate higher with women than men. They see something in her that I don't. And if they choose to identify with that character in someway who am I to dictate whether that's a good identification point? I personally don't think that's appropriate to do unless the identification point is say actively harmful. There's nothing to debate. People relate to that character in a way. If she disagrees that its not good or something that's cool but its not really point nor do I think its appropriate for them to decide whether it works or not as a relation point. Whether its interesting or even good to explore I think are more arguable points. I was just pointing it out as a reason why in official works and in fanworks shadow being a guy on the outs sort of finding his own way tends to be popular set up for him. Also I don't think anyone up has tried to blow up a planet , however I don't think you need to have done so to relate to a well written character who has. Just how writing woks. I think this is a very particular situation that requires tact and respect. And I believe I'm giving it that, all I ask is you do the same.
  11. All this talk about SA story only made me realize... The plot makes no fucking sense whatsover.
  12. Today
  13. Just heard the news about Kobe Bryant... Im just stunned right now.

  14. The cover is by Aaron Hammersrom not ABT. https://mobile.twitter.com/Ziggyfin/status/1221588843125600256
  15. We have one set of impressions from someone at the screening. He answers some questions down below.
  16. Took a break from the data bosses to try beat CoM on Proud, but I'll definitely going back to give this a try. Yozora's been discouraging me a lot from finishing this up, and I'm getting burnt out with the superbosses, so I really just want the ending and trophy at this rate.
  17. Yesterday
  18. Yozora can be easily beaten if you use Ariel and elixirs. Just spam that summon like there's no tomorrow:
  19. RIP Kobe Bryant.

  21. Yozora in KH Remind can be easily beaten if you use Ariel and elixirs. Just spam that summon like there's no tomorrow:

     

  22. I swear every single news site that has a popup blocker detection blurb starts off like "look, we get it-"  

  23. I'll admit that between straight up not having the channel it airs on (Disney XD,) and how the plot seems very all over the place, this is currently the most out of the loop I've ever been on the Pokemon anime. it almost never crosses my eyeballs now so I often forget about it entirely and have no idea whats even happening anymore. I know it was treated like crap on Cartoon Network but atleast I could catch it occassionally on there, lol

  25. I have no idea how people can like Mega Man 2 when everything about it feels like a textbook study of how not to design a good Mega Man game.

      I wouldn't be able to tell you what's special about it but there must be some secret to it because even though I never played the Mega Man games as a kid, I got MM2 on Wii VC and enjoyed it enough to play through several times. After enjoying it so much, I picked up MM3 when that came out and yet somehow lost interest in that one and never finished it.

      Granted, this was so long ago, maybe a new more exciting game distracted me away from 3, not anything inherently wrong with the game itself.

      Many things about the game are great. Many things about the game are also BULLSHIT.

      Why does Metal Blade severely outclass every other weapon?! Why are so many stages stupidly hard, like Quick Man's?! Why is it possible to get stuck in Wily's Castle if you don't have enough Crash Bombers?!

      Despite that, it's still a shining example of it's time, and great fun to play today.

      By far my biggest problem with it is how certain bosses in the Wily stages cannot be defeated without the right weapons. If you ran out of crash bombs to defeat that stupid orb boss then you might as well get yourself a game over because dying doesn't reset weapon energy. If you don't have bubble lead for the alien fight then you can't beat it. And getting a game over means you lose all of your E-tanks so this is the last thing you want if you already struggle a lot with it.

      I hate dealing with enemies and bosses in this game, their patterns are too erratic for me to react to even when I know they're coming. It's impossible for me to dodge the aforementioned orb's projectiles without using the pause trick. That's not to say I don't struggle at other Mega Man games, I absolutely do, but X1-4 and Zero 2-4 are easier for me to wrap my head around and adapt to than Mega Man 2's difficulty.

      Mega Man 3-6 have their moments but I find them fine to play for the most part, especially 4 and 5. 1 and 2 are the ones I have a hard time going back to and I can only really appreciate their historical relevance over their quality or fun factor. The way I play games, let alone other Mega Man games, just isn't compatible with what MM2 demands of me.

      That's why i only played megaman 2 on emulator with save states.

      I can agree that the forced weapon usage in the wily stage bosses particularly for boobeam trap and the alien aren't exactly what I call good design by any margin.

      When I look back at MM2 i see it as a case of early installment weirdness only with less of the jank than the first one. The foundation is built upon but it needed some ironing in a few places.

      Not a favorite of mine in the classic series by any stretch but I still had my fun with it.

      ^ That's more or less how I feel. MM2 was a massive step-up from 1 and really helped make a name for the series, and yeah I totally get how people can say it's their favorite, flaws and all. But with six of these damn games on the NES I really cannot agree at all with the fans who say it's the objective peak of the series, or how it went downhill after 2 (or 3 depending on who you ask).

      A lot of my annoyance toward the pedestal upon which 2 is placed also has to do with Capcom officially acknowledging it by designing MM9 as a successor to 2, and I'm not talking about just the removal of the slide or charge shot but also the ridiculous trial and error difficulty and reuse of music. And I actually like 9 more than 2. But wow are a lot of parts of that game not fun at all and feel like a deliberate regression from 3 and 4's tight and (mostly) fair difficulty.
