  1. Past hour
  2. Is it wrong for me to think that if you're going to play an old NES/SNES era game for the first time that you "should" at least look up the manual as well to learn the game?

    I feel like people who don't do that just end up giving the game a bad hand because it doesn't teach them the controls in game.

  3. Got my first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine a few hours ago. Thankfully no major symptoms, besides my arm being a bit sore.

  4. Legitimately shocked.


  5. Wanted to give it one more go an tried playing through Mario 64 again this time with a friend and yeah, neither of us like the game very much. First few levels are fine, but later levels are a slog, with repetitive objectives and irritating enemies/gimmicks. Honestly the game feels like a poor man's Banjo/Jak/Spyro.

      That's what I feared. I have Super Mario 3D All-Stars and that's the one I'm least looking forward to trying out. Sunshine back in the day wasn't too much fun for me either. I also didn't get on with Mario Kart 8 since I was so used to the All-Stars Racing games and I'm not a fan of driving with the X-button.

      I'm sure Galaxy will be fun though.

      Legit funny and fairly animated Mario cartoons is cursed

  7. Today
  8. New photos.: Also, here is a reply from one of the people who had something to talk about the guy in the air.:
  9. I'd really love to play all those old Dreamcast (and maybe Saturn) games one day. Perhaps in some kind of a collection. One that isn't just the same old 2D classics re-released over and over again as a result.

      Sega: *keeps releasing 16bit games*
      Fans: "We want 32bit arcade games and upwards"
      Sega; *still keeps releasing 16bit games*
      also Sega: "Why did our Sega Ages line fail?!

      If the 60th Anniversary blowout thing they were doing isn't enough incentive than I don't know what could be.

      Those dumb, overpriced Game Gear keychain things were definitely not the angle to bet on.

  10. Gee whiz this wasn't very good, was it?

      My FAVORITE fucking line that I'll use any excuse I can to post in a conversation is "If I may quote Charles Darwin".

      Sometimes I want to see Richard Kuta return just so he can do more weird stuff to amuse me. Petty I know but, that line is such a gem.

    2. Soniman


      I'll still take this over the disturbing foot fetish video disguised as a sonic OVA sequel 


    3. Blue Blood

      Christ that one is also really strange. The strange obsession with showing all of the characters' bare feet and focusing on them so much makes for really, really uncomfortable viewing.

      At least the guys behind the OVA sequel aren't as unlikeable as Richard Kuta though, I guess? I mean I don't know anything about them, but I've not heard of any drama. 

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      This was insanely weird. That random "quote charles darwin" part especially.

      @Ryannumber1gamer To this day, it still makes me laugh. Ah, it's magical in it's badness. Try hard, pretentious writing is the funniest thing to watch go wrong.

      We made sure that they'll never live that down, with what probably went on to overshadow the original project itself:



      "But we were curious and wanted to know what their feet looked like"

      Yeah right, and I wanna know what Eggman looks like without a mustache or glasses. If you live so far under a rock that you're unironically "curious" on wanting to show people what really should never be so much as thought about, let alone go anywhere past that, seek immediate mental health and get out more

  11. Wow...now this was unexpected...I never thought they would show any GUN machines in the sequel so soon. Maybe this is just a small Easter Egg that will actually contribute to the overall storyline for this movie. Besides, they still need to wrap up the Echidna arc for Sonic first before delving into Shadow.
  12. We have shots of a giant blue screen on wheels. Will this be a stand in for giant mechs ala Big Foot?
  13. Whoever they got to replace Eggman's Japanese voice actor, should've taken over Gol D. Roger's role as well on One Piece, since they were both voiced by Chikao Ohtsuka when he was alive. Eggman sounds almost the same these days while Roger is pretty distracting in how different he sounds now, imo.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Its his son actually who's famous for being THE Solid Snake. But he's a good soundalike for his father.

      Akio Ohtsuka if you were wondering.

      Edit: Oh nevermind it wasn't him apparently! Its some guy named Kotaro Nakamura. He has done a few odd roles here and there.

  14. Seems like, whatever the plot, this film's gonna be even more chock full of fanservice references than the last film.
  15. How much respect will you lose from me if I said I find Jake Kaufman’s music to be just ok?

      How much respect would you lose from me if I said I don't know who that is?

    4. Dejimon11


      He's a composer who did Ducktales remastered, the shantae series, mighty switch force series and Shovel Knight 

    5. Dr. Detective Mike

      I've played none of those.

  16. You can more or less tell by using the official soundtrack release as a guideline, where every track gets at least 2 full loops before ending or fading out. If it sounds like the song has reached a loop and the progress bar is about to hit the halfway point on the running time, it means there's no second variation. If you're only about a quarter of the way through when that happens, it means the first loop isn't really done yet - there's about to be a repeated section with some reworking done, as you described for Flying Battery, before the loop of the Mania version is over. Having said all of that, off the top of my head, I'm fairly sure Green Hill Act 2 is the only song other than Flying Battery Act 2 that goes for this. Only about 80% sure on that but yeah.
  17. I would want them to wait till mid a second trilogy if they must use shadow since his story is still complicated and you would have to explain how robotnik;s grandad created a similar creature to the mobians with speed like sonic’s, I don’t think it could work here
  18. In the latest update to his blog, Zippo said the Sonic 1&2 StealthTax remasters are part of the collection for the 30th anniversary...













    ...when pigs fly

  19. I feel like this is just a process they're going to approach slower in the future instead. They're just waiting until the heat dies down.
  20. I want more DuckTales.

    This Duckburg Life podcast is great though.

      Disney has an official ducktales podcast 


  21. Update: Sony went back on their decision and have decided the PS3 and Vita stores will remain open! https://blog.playstation.com/2021/04/19/playstation-store-on-ps3-and-ps-vita-will-continue-operations/

    Holy crap, great move by Sony!

    1. Rabid-Coot


      People panic bought toilet rolls etc last year lets get some of that going for our old stores.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Fantastic news!!

      We did it, boys. There's few things as satisfying as a top dog company backpedaling their embarssing anti-consumer decisions.


      As with the Xbox Live Gold incident before, this is the kind of material that really shouldn't take Sony all the consumer backlash to realize how stupid that was, but here we are. But what matters now is our uproar was heard and answered. 

      The next time somebody has the balls to do us consumers wrong, we'll be ready. 


    4. Teoskaven


      It's at least something. The shutdown is inevitable though, what they need to focus is a migration where they can secure the most possible products on modern digital stores so the old ones can be let go.

      So now that we have Sony and Microsoft out of the way, I wonder what stupid decision Nintendo is going to try and pull but then fall back on.

    7. HPX


      As if Nintendo would ever blink. From the outside looking in, I'd say Nintendo users have let them get away with too much already. 

  23. I wouldn't mind if Shadow was reserved for a fourth movie if only to give Knuckles a big time to shine. He kind of fell aside after SA1, so it would be good for him to get his big time to shine before getting into Shadow's big debut. After all, it's not like Paramount is necessarily tied to 3 movies:
  24. Shadow can fit because he's tied to Earth and GUN. Since this is live-action set on Earth, yeah he fits, they just need to adapt the story. But no, if Knuckles is really here like reports say, maybe Shadow could be just the cliffhanger and will be featured in 3. Tails and Knuckles in 2, Shadow in 3. I'm sticking with that and hopefully it's what they do.
  25. Things we have to thank Ken Penders for:

    Uhhhhh. @Blue Blood's avatar.

    1. Dr. Detective Mike

      Dr. Detective Mike

      The Lara-Su Chronicles thread of course. It's the most entertaining thing that's been birthed from Ken Pender's existance.

    2. Supah Berry

      Scourge; I guess he still has his fans, among other characters he made that people still like.


      Though I guess we've him to "thank" for taking them all away and deny them a chance to live better lives.

      The word is "blame", not "thank"

      Someone on Retro isolated the eyes and mouth  from the render and made the creepy smile. I just added a shitty background and claimed it as my own creation.

      Just like Ken Penders
