  1. Past hour
  2. -The real question where was Chaos the whole ? all villains in trailer were boss fight except Chaos .
  3. Just beat Buzz...

    ...really? 

    That was the """""Dark Souls""""" level difficulty spike according to Eurogamer??

      Even as a seven-year-old, I beat that toad with minimal trouble. The only real hindrance I faced was being freaked out by its design and arena.

  4. Watching The Dalek Invasion of Earth

      Get those earplugs ready otherwise Susan’s screams might rupture your eardrums.

  5. Got a haircut.

    Unbearably itchy right now.

      I can relate.

  6. That feeling when you love someone very much and are helping them through the the first game that they've never played (but you 100%'d back in the day) and you're telling them how to 100% all the levels from memory as they stream it. And then they get to the first Superman 64 level. And you need to remember the easiest way to beat it, rather than the fastest.

    The Ace Attorney Topic (DS, 3DS, iOS) - News in OP

    Also, Phoenix Wright statue by F4F! https://www.first4figures.com/blog/objection-your-honor!.html Damn this was teased in 2014. It looks alright.

    Sonic Retrospective Sonic Adventure 2 Battle (Lets Play)

    Part 2
  10. SONIC SAYS: Anime is bad for your brain!

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      He had an anime, so he's bad for our brains too :D!

    2. Ivo the Coldsteel
  11. Conquering Storm’s Servant

    Sonic Team should follow Marvel's example for a COHESIVE UNIVERSE

    That last part isn’t really true because the lore in Sonic Adventure doesn’t really ignore what was established in Sonic 3, it actually builds off from it. The Master Emerald never shattered and and thus kicked off the events with Chaos in 3 like it did Adventure.
  12. Hey, wanna 100% this Farm Simulation game? No problem, you just need to be amazing at this twin shooter!

    Why do games do thiiiiis

  13. He became a streamer and dedicated his time to becoming the most epic Fortnite gamer of them all! So he didn't have the time or interest in stopping Doctor Robotnik's takeover of Sonic's World.
  14. Seems Knuckles the Echidna accidentally uttered the true name of God and has turned to ash! Let us pray for the soul of Knuckles the Echidna.

  15. I got to see Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald.

    Never have I walked away from theatres feeling so disappointed.

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Not as disappointed as I was when the first one didn’t tell me where to find a single fantastic beast

      I enjoyed it.

  16. Tbh I completely forgot about the new rumored Sonic cartoon, if it's classic it'd be cool, since I love Mania Adventures style, but a modern cartoon? That would be amazing.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      What rumoured new cartoon?

  17. I don't think it's realistic to expect something like that for Sonic, mostly the games. But the comics? Sure, they are amazing, everyone loves them as Ian writes the characters correctly and there is quite the planning ahead with ongoing story arcs.

    What music are you currently listening to?

    Lately, I've been listening to these four songs off The Anix's newest album. I'm just really digging them and digging this sound lately~ It also helps that a LOT of The Anix's music reminds me heavily of Mass Effect, one of my favorite video game franchises xDD

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Yeah, it sort of reminds me of Sonic 4's music in that sense.
  20. If it wasn't enough that fans were outdoing SEGA in Sonic platformers, they're now outdoing them in Kart Racers:

      .....

      Spoiler

      still just a mario kart clone

       

    2. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      While I admire the effort they put into this mod, it's still pretty much a Mario Kart clone, so the comparison is a bit unfair IMO.

    3. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      wow its finally complete

    4. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      looks cool.

    5. Wraith

      Wraith

      what happened with team sonic racing that it's suddenly not a mario kart clone

    6. Pelvic WOO! engine
    7. Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      Meh, that's a Mario Kart clone that they've made. 

      Still looks cool,  but not an apt comparison.

    Oh..., Please let it be Dr. Qwark.
  22. If you use an exemple, it's normal that people use that as a base to talk. You have said "they should follow marvel's example" and talked about the MCU using example of how the stories are interlinked. So of course people will talk about that. Mania being in another timeline than the other game have nothing to do with how it's complex, or even with quality. It's a branding decision. As they don't have a huge time-gap in the continuity like in Megaman that makes things easier. Basically, how they are doing it here, they have the possibility to have as many new things in the classic Timeline, have it pretty different than the Modern timeline. It basically give more potentiality, and even breaking some status quo in the future (it give also a lot of potentiality for funs what-if). So nope, it's not because they can't write. And going to a more serialized story wouldn't be a great idea, for me. If I agree that a more focused framework for creating Sonic stories would be a great things. By that I mean that it wouldn't be some kind of complete encyclopedic lore to reuse in most games, but more some kind of a larger set of "basic rules of the Sonic universe/multiverse/whateververse". Things like the 7 chaos emerald (that they already have), how the planets works and their basic looks and rules (just something like "earth is a pseudo-earth à la Unleashed using its continents while Animal World is a bunch of islands full of magical funny colored animals", "GUN's is the military forces of Earth"), other basic rules… It would be a way to make sure that all stories can work in the same narrative universe, some kind of compatibility layer for stories. But something I liked with Sonic games, it's how every game can tell it's own story (even during the Adventure era. They didn't make an attempt to serialize things, as basically we have a few sequels to SA2 and that's all). Even most of the numbered sequels tell a different story than the first game, in Sonic, and not really a followup to the previous story. For instance, take all the "big games", they all tell one story, from beginning to the end. Sometimes there is a "sequel" or a thing like that, but mostly, I like that we get with a game a complete story (and I often prefer games that are "Sonic et co. come into an existing problem with its own characters and stuff, because it works well if Sonic "traveler" character"). Adding prequels, stuff like that would be for me an hit and miss. Not to mention that we would loose how the game were accessible story-wise. For me, it's more a question of having simply a better framework. Having the whole thing wrapped up in one game is way better, especially with the price of games 😛 (yeah because buying a ~40€ game isn't the same than going to a ~12€ cinema place), with sometimes some addition when the story is really good or have potential to reuse (and I would prefer if they didn't start again doing a lot of "story sequels" to a successful game, like they did with SA2… Even if I understand that it's a good way to advertise smaller games). I would add (that'll may be an unpopular opinion time), that I would like if in Phase 4 Marvel did also that a bit more. That they let their different movies be different movies. The movies I liked the most (Black Panther, Spiderman Homecoming) was when the overarching plot wasn't too present in the story of the movie. I would like if they movies, later, shared more their narrative universe, while letting each movies go wilder without having to tie in with the story of another movie. I love the MCU, and I loved the big plot, but I think that it tied too much some movies. Maybe that's why for me, tying always everything isn't always a good idea and have some downside that aren't to forget in a wave of nerding out for smart links. Having ties can be cool, but you have to let also every stories breath themselves. Especially in a set of what would often have been self-contained stories. ( of course, it's not an absolute, and it depends a lot of every case )
  23. Tfw you're finally finished with your tests and have extra vacation

  24. I'm just using MCU as an example, I could use hundreds of different franchises as an example.
  25. Again, even the best of Sonic games kind of ignore the lore of past games. Remember how Eggman cracked open the Earth in Unleashed? Well, he did the same thing in Advance 3 was there was no Gaia monster. Remember basically everything about Angel Island in Adventure? Almost completely different from how it was in Sonic 3. Does the lore need cleaning up? Sure. Does Sonic need better writers that pay more attention? Absolutely. Is the MCU a good example to follow for this? Absolutely not.
