  1. Past hour
  2. I've found enjoyment in thinking that Sonic Forces is a retelling of Star Wars Episodes 2-6

  3. Oh man this Dr. Grey is an asshole at least I get to see Maya again

    *20 mins later*


    Jesus Christ. O-okay well at least the trial shouldn't be that ba-

    *First part of the trial*


    1. Tornado


      Who brings a gun to a summoning? What was even his intent? To threaten an already dead person into admitting to wrongdoing to save his career?

  4. I honestly don't get the fuss for zone transitions, like yeah it was weird that some zones didn't have 'em and I would have liked them too but it surprises me that so many people have such a big problem with it and are willing to use that criticism as a reason to dock the overall game's quality lower for it.

    1. Josh


      The zones have a nice sense of progression within them and I think that's the most important thing. They got that right so it's all good with me.

      I'd like zone transitions but they're probably the least pressing issue the game has.

    2. Ryannumber1Santa


      I mean, it's a bit annoying there isn't any for some of them but it's nowhere near a deal-breaker by any means. If anything, I'd say it's a bit of a nitpick more than anything.

    3. TheOcelot


      I think the transitions are important to explain why Sonic is revisiting old zones. Mania is a long game so the transitions help keep the story interesting encouraging you to keep playing.

      One thing I can't overlook is the lack of a transition cutscene between Metallic Madness and the final zone Titanic Monarch. Think of the epic build dup to Death Egg in Sonic 3&K, to Death Egg in Sonic 2 and (to an extent) Metallic Madness in Sonic CD. Whereas the build up to Titanic Monarch is pathetic because there is none.

      I'm bored by the time I get to TT (and it doesn't help that TT is a way too automated for a final zone and doesn't fell much like a final zone). TT act2 boss is epic though.

      Mania's main issue which hurt it; are some of the boss fights being unfair and some poor level design, which is more of a detriment than the missing transitions.

  5. Sonic Channel

    Japanese twitter account.
  6. Voltrix's Everything

    thanks for the greeting and here goes an art fart
  7. Wow, just found Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012) on my Origin account.

    Got it free some time ago, and didn't remembered that.

    1. Tornado


      That's a pretty good summation of the game in general, actually.

    2. Solister


      @Tornado Yeah, I played it a few minutes now. It's interesting how it's similar to Burnout Paradise (2009), and well, I can't say much things because my last NFS experience was with Underground 2 (2004) ***Fells old***.

  8. In terms of gameplay by preference:

    X > Zero > Classic > ZX

    Never played Legends, though.

    1. Tornado


      Most of the love of Legends is the aesthetic and earnestness of its presentation. It doesn't play anything amazing (Tomb Raider with Mega Man trappings, essentially), though the second is far better.

  9. I just bought Sonic Forces for my friend just to teach him a lesson. 

    1. Bobnik


      And the lesson is: buy games that are mediocre for your friends!



    2. Dejimon11


      Trust me he'll still get mad

    3. JovahexeonXMAS Tron Bonne

      JovahexeonXMAS Tron Bonne

      *shrug* He might have fun with it so it may not be as effective as getting him Bubsy or Knack 2 ,Dej.

    4. Dejimon11


      He doesn't own a PS4 or use steam. He's been saying since day one Forces looks like crap and didn't want anybody to get it for him or he'll be ticked off. I know him Jovah 

    5. ThePrinceOfSaiyans


      You're going to Hell for this, my dude.

  10. It's annoying as shit having to de-transform in Mega Man ZX whenever you have to talk to an NPC in Whateverfuck City (or Area C, since the game doesn't seem to bother giving it a name)

    1. Sean


      Also at this point I think I've obtained all of the story-relevant biometals. Model HX is the only one I find useful on a regular basis.

  11. If Deku and other Quirkless people in the MHA universe couldn’t become Superman, why not become Batman instead by using gadgets/weapons? 

    1. Sean


      Weapons and stuff cost money, and lots of it.

    2. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King

      Deku was originally gonna be that, but IIRC the editor of the manga didn't aprove the concept

  12. oh my god, generations and zelda

    1. Dejimon11


      Ok yeah that Zelda one good

  13. TBH, if Sega were to sell themselves or any of their IP's, personally I'd rather they do it to another third-party group.

    Unless a series has always been on a specific brand of consoles.

  14. Today
  15. I'm honestly not sure if I'd trust Sega with any of their dormant series tbh.

    But I don't think I need to worry since they do nothing but sit on them anyway :V

    1. Thigolf


      Okay, scratch that, I'd trust the Yakuza Team with Streets of Rage

      But I think that's about it.

  16. Trying to catch up to Komaru and Makoto, Alisa yells ahead to try and tell them where Toko is. "At...at this islands...medical centre...!" *gasp* She only knew where to go earlier, thanks to Dave who had been there before. "You met everybody except me and Shinji? This is odd..." Kotone thinks for a second, trying to piece things together. She's from another dimension. Teddie is from that same dimension and has met the whole SEES gang...but no mention of herself or Shinji. What does it mean? A sudden chill breaks her concentration. "Brrr...m-maybe we could talk more at a m-much warmer place?" She asks Teddie. In the background, you could see Komaru, Makoto and Alisa run by. The pair didn't notice them though. ==== Back with Neptune and Noire, the two continue walking while carrying a large heavy bag. Noire was tiring but her pride refuses to give in. "A-Are we there yet??" Noire says, showing signs of frustration. "Y-You must have something....b-big planned with all of...all of this." She was still trying to workout what Neptune was up to but she suddenly notices Komaru, Makoto and Alisa running by in the opposite direction. Noire felt that Alisa looked familiar. "W-Was that...God Eater? It really...looked like her..." ==== Elsewhere, Hero Prinny walks around aimlessly. Seeing the Skylanders helping and caring about each other confused him. As a demon, he's used to thinking only about himself and doing whatever was necessary for his own personal gain. He couldn't understand and was so distracted that he'd forgotten about his mission and the fact that he was approaching somebody. "Hey there. So you ditched your escort huh?" "WHA! Dood." Looking up in surprise, the person that spoke to him was none other than Dante, holding Ivory around his finger playfully as if it was a subtle threat. "So...what is it that you're really after? It's pretty obvious you're up to something." Dante asked casually while leaning on a tree. Hero Prinny felt murderous intent coming from the Devil Hunter, if he doesn't like what Hero Prinny has to say, he might be forced to wear a bullet overcoat. Suddenly, Komaru, Makoto and Alisa rush by the two, surprising Hero Prinny. Dante doesn't take his eyes off Hero Prinny though. "Hm? Was that the kid? Looks like she's already making friends." Dante says as he instinctively knew that Alisa was a part of the group that just passed.
  17. Gonna see The last Jedi soon!

    1. TheOcelot


      Hope you enjoy it.

  18. At least when Activision revived Crash, they got a team who had experience with the genre.

    If I were a JSR fan (or a fan of any dormant series for that matter), I wouldn't want a dev team with so few numbers and little experience outside of cheap VR games handling a series I like that's been dormant.

    High risk of it being disappointing, and it'll be back to where we started.

    1. Sean


      Knowing Sega, they probably rejected the idea because they're not interested in doing anything with the IP.

    2. Dejimon11


      But this is the same company that got mostly inexperienced developers to work on their flagship franchise and made one of the most mediocre installments in the series 

    3. dwibs93


      @Sean If that's the case, then I'm for that.

      Apathy can spill over into a final product and negatively affect it.

    4. Sean


      And that's why Sega needs to stop making Sonic games

    5. Dejimon11


      Sonic Mania 2 is cancelled. 

  19. Hit is the only character without any funny frame so far.

    Instead they gave him the worst assist possible. A kick.

  20. I've been out of the loop. I didn't know CaCs were getting SSGSS in Xenoverse 2.

  21. Why does Sega hate good

    1. pppp


      But guys, we know we betrayed the fans, but from now on we'll do better and push for quality, we swear!

    2. JosepHenry


      There is a lot of factors that showed why SEGA didn't allowed this, the team is too small the trailer doesn't show too much besides the awesome new designs and art style.

    3. dwibs93


      I also hear that all the developers did before this were cheap VR games.

      If I were a fan, I'd want a more experienced team handling it.

    4. Cayenne



      Another cancelled game concept? Why do you hate JSR, Sega?

  22. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    http://www.whsv.com/content/news/Republican-still-the-winner-of-northern-Virginia-delegate-race-after-recount-464215143.html First of the 4 Virginia recounts has concluded. The Republican's margin increased by 7, and the Democrat's by 14. The seat remains Republican. There are three more next week - 2 Republican and 1 Democrat; the most interesting one is the seat decided for the GOP by 10 votes. There's another where a lawsuit is in progress to hold a new election because hundreds of ballots were wrongly received. The tight 51-49 majority means this will be interesting to watch. It's a silver lining. Everything could fall apart, and we get nothing in the end for it. But no, instead, the GOP is ruining things so badly there's room for Democrats to push something radically different next time they are in power. It would have been ideal to pass single payer WITHOUT needing absolute chaos in the healthcare market first, but that's the GOP for you. If people die, it is on the GOP, not the Democrats. And that will be a talking point that can be used to crucify the GOP in the future. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, as it goes.
  23. When was the last time you played Sonic Mania?

    1. Sean


      Last Monday.

    2. JosepHenry


      2 weeks ago. I was thinking on playing it again but I went to draw instead.

    3. VEDJ-F



    4. TCB


       don't remember, was playing DOOM instead

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

    7. Dejimon11


      The day after I beat Forces 

    8. Stasis


      A couple of weeks ago. Got it for Switch to build my library up but haven't really played it. It's an amazing game, but the missing zone transitions and shit ending really kill it for me.

    9. Adamabba


      Early october

  24. Sonic Channel

    It loads fine for me, but how do you find those peeks to the next Wallpaper?
  25. reaction: Disney buys Sega

    1. Perkilator


      I'd be okay with it. I was thinking maybe they could make Disney Interactive a part of it, so they could get back to making games again.

    2. Depression Kong

      Depression Kong

      Disney's Sonic the Hedgehog

    3. Dejimon11


      So SEGA will be dead in a few years because Disney doesn't know how to run a gaming business 

  26. Honestly Sonic Unleashed is a horrible game

    The music is fucking great tho'. Who can forget such gems as Rooftop Run Ni.. PADAM PADAM PADADAAAAAAMMM
  27. Sonic Forces - OST Thread

    Do we know where Mariko Nanba and Fumie Kumatani are working right now? It's criminal that they never got a chance to be sound directors while they were at SEGA.
