  2. The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!

    On the FFshrine forums they have a lot of video game music for download. You can find the other tracks there in lossless quality. It's a pretty good site. But I have been wondering something. On this video that Tee Lopes uploaded, there appears to be a custom ending for Studiopolis Zone Act 1. In the comments Tee Lopes says that this custom ending will be on the vinyl for Sonic Mania. But people on the FFshrine forums are saying that none of the tracks on the vinyl have custom endings. Is this true? That would be really disappointing if so. This is the video in question btw.
  3. Seriously fuck Big's Mission A in Twinkle Park. 

  4. Sonic Mania vinyl soundtrack has arrived. Now to go on YouTube and download those missing tracks.

    What? They're 15-30 minutes long? Come off it!

      Think I found what I'm looking for after a bit of digging.

  5. Sonic Forces file sizes revealed

    Small file size can mean a few things: ---The developers are really good at compressing the game's content as well as using memory-saving techniques. This demonstrates high programming competency, which in turn is a good sign that the game is at least reasonably competant ---There is not a lot of content in the game, hence the file size is low by today's standards. This is generally a bad sign for something like Sonic Forces, but if its something simple like Tetris, its not a big deal. ---The game is incomplete. It might have a lot of content, but its not finished and Sonic Team doesn't have time to do much more than compress, compress, compress so that the game at least isn't bogged down by loading times. This is a bad sign-- an incomplete game is usually a bad game. ---The developers only put some of the game on the actual disc or base download. You have to download an update to get the rest. This is an annoying game development practice that needs to die, because if the whole game isn't on the initial game purchase, as far as I'm concerned you paid full price for only a part of the game. Bonus points if its tied to DRM, as the pirates will gladly provide a package containing all of the game, therefore defeating the point of the DRM. There is no evidence that Forces will do this, so I am discounting it at this point. Fortunately, for games that aren't tying the rest of the game to an update, the small file size is usually caused by good compression and lack of content. Here's hoping that Forces has the former and not the latter.
  6. The Sonic Mania Soundtrack thread!

    Vinyl finally arrived. Really just 35 minutes and 50 seconds? You can fit another 15 minutes at least onto the disc easily. I'd go to YouTube and download those missing tracks but all I can find are those that have been extended to 15 or 30 minutes each for fuck sakes.

    If I remember correctly, Unleashed had a file size of around 6gb. LW was 8gb and Generations is 11gb. File size is rarely the best indicator to go on in terms of game size. Half the time the reasons you see big games getting big file sizes is due to poor optimization techniques and extremely massive texture files. If you're not going for photorealism, the latter reason is out. It's why games like botw can get away with low file sizes for the most part.
  8. I swear me not being here results in things being a warzone.

      Yeah, you're like the nanny of this forum

      Nah, not really. It's just that I've been fairly disconnected from some of the things in here, and weird stuff keeps happening in my disconnection.

      I'm like the weird version of Ferno.

    3. RedFox99


      Maybe you just have a repellent to war zone forums.

      :huh: just another day...

      It really IS just another day unfortunately.

  11. Oh wow, I'm actually pretty decent as Widowmaker on PC. I got PotG and 28 eliminations.

    Everyone else is way harder to play as than on consoles though. 

    1. Strickerx5


      The characters that actually require aiming are going to be easier with a mouse and keyboard. Which is why when I play as Lucio or Sym I can just connect my controller and lay back a bit XD

  12. Sonic Forces file sizes revealed

    @McGrooseIt's hard to say where Forces stands. I think Zelda BOTW and Mario Odyssey also have really low file sizes. In fact, after just looking up, Mario has an even less file size than this (around 5 GB) and that game seems to have every game type since the dawn of mankind, so it's a toss up really. It could just be that everyone's stepping up their compression game?
  13. Sonic Forces file sizes revealed

    It is important to remember that file size does not equal content. This information doesn't tell us anything about the content of the game.
  14. Man, I can't wait for the officially licensed Sonic Forces porn parody:

    Sonic Foursome


    1. Dizcrybe


      Sonic's Foreskin

  15. Sonic Forces file sizes revealed

    You forget Odyssey is a 5 GB game and it looks like it's filled with content, so size doesn't always equal to amount of content. Sure it might look like not a lot, but I somewhat appreciate that it's not a 30-50 GB game.
  16. if only forces had good level design. then i'd be able to stomach all the other weird or bad things about it. but nope, can't even have that

    1. Strickerx5


      some would argue that's all it needs

  17. tfw Mario has better rolling physics than Sonic does


    1. Lord-Dreamerz


      Sonic has forgotten how to be a hedgehog.

  18. sonic forces just keeps getting stranger and stranger

  19. Amy's theme would work best with this partnership

      The official remixes in particular would work pretty well.

      I'm more partial to the second one, personally.

  20. Sonic Forces file sizes revealed

    I don't think there's much need for panic. I'm pretty sure Unleashed and Generations were around this area in file size as well, if not less.
  21. Sonic Forces file sizes revealed

    Should I be happy or disappointed about the file size? Yes, we complain that games are always so gigantic in file sizes (40GB+ commonly), but a game this low in size implies that there's just not as much content in the game as there should be. When Battlefront 2015 was released, we found out the file size was roughly 25GB barebones. That correlated with just how little content there was at launch. So ya, you've got a little more space on the hard drive, but will there be enough content in the game to justify 4 some years in development? I don't know. I'm beginning to doubt it.
  22. Sonic Forces file sizes revealed

    The texture quality downgrade on Switch might explain the file size. Still, this means that the game WON'T be content starved.
  23. Well, to avoid any further meta commentary.

    Assuming Infinite's won't be the only one, what character vocal themes do you want remixed in Forces?

    1. Joseph Henry

      Joseph Henry



      and Knuckles

    2. Diamond Dragon X

      We also have Supporting Me which may be Shadow's actual theme in the game.

    3. Lord-Dreamerz
    4. VEDJ-F


      Chaotix is a stereotypical response from me, but seriously it hasn't been touched since Heroes itself so giving it some attention would be a neat throwback at this point. 

    5. Hottub


      not a vocal theme but chaos better get a fuckin great remix of open your heart

    6. Jovahexeon Ace Joranvexeon
    7. NikoS


      Well, supporting me is there apparently, if it’s not played in the actual level it may be Shadow’s theme (if not can we pls get all hail shadow or throw it all away?)

      also, everyone is saying “Open Your Heart rmx” for Chaos, but i personally think we got one too many remixes of it, can we get “Chaos ver.6” remixed instead? I freakin’ love that song, put some heavier guitar work there and i’ll buy 2 copies of the game

      Yeah, I prefer works that are very underutilized rather then overused ones.
