    Mortal Kombat

    We all OBVIOUSLY know about Mortal Kombat, and if you don't then you at least have heard of it at least once. Mortal Kombat is a semi-realistic pure fighting game series developed by NetherRealm Studios (ex-Midway), it is known for its brutal gameplay, the gore-filled Fatalities and totally sexual characters like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya Blade, Kitana and others. The first Mortal Kombat game was released in 1992 as a rival to the also-released Street Fighter to positive reviews, getting praised for the use of real life actors and the never-seen-before brutality that has become a trademark of the series. From the insanely hard Mortal Kombat 2, to the glorious Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and the above-average 3D Mortal Kombat 4, the series has become one of the most popular fighting games in the history of videogames. But after Mortal Kombat 4, the series entered a hiatus due to negative reviews of games like Mortal Kombat: Special Forces and Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub Zero. But then, out from heavens came Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance, introducing sexy graphics and a new upgraded gameplay from Mortal Kombat 4 including the new Fighting Styles and weapons. Mortal Kombat was back baby. From Deadly Alliance to the godlike Deception, to the grand finale Mortal Kombat Armageddon (which ended in the death of all the characters with an exception of Shao Kahn and Raiden), the Mortal Kombat series decided to start all over again with the semi-reboot Mortal Kombat 9. Mortal Kombat 9 returns to its roots, pure 2D playability along with sexy graphics and characters and the most gore-filled bloody experience never seen before in a Mortal Kombat game. Which also ended in the death of nearly most of the Mortal Kombat cast so we have yet to see how MK10 will be like. So yeah, talk about Mortal Kombat here if you may.

    The Pokémanz Thread

    Junichi Masuda revealed on his Twitter that he had filmed an episode of Pokemon Smash, and since the episodes are recorded a month or so in advance, it’s likely the episode he taped will air in January. Masuda usually appears on Pokemon Smash to make game announcements. Get hyped.

    Dolphin doesn't upscale. It renders the games at a higher resolution. Difference between this: Which is a 320x240 game displayed (or upscaled, whatever term you would like to use) at 1080p (this is what the PS3 does for PSX/PS2 games). And this: Which is a 320x240 game rendered at 1080p (this is what PC emulators, and I think the Xbox 360, do). All anti aliasing would have done is clean up jaggies, but it wouldn't have made the games look smoother so much as blurrier (that's basically what the smoothing option on the PS3 does for older games). Upscaling generally only really improves the graphics on games with spritework and polygon mixes (think 2000-era 2D fighters and platformers) because it makes the spritework "pop" more. That was probably a TV issue. VC games run at the native resolution (a Genesis game on a US Wii would run at 240p when run through component cables with progressive scan on, rather than the 480i it would run with composite cables), and very few modern HDTVs accept a signal below 480i without some sort of problem. LCDs in particular hate sub-480 resolutions, so if you have one that will accept one and display it natively (like I do) consider yourself lucky and cherish that TV.

    One thing I will say though is snowball and firework spam isn't fun at all. I swear I get hit by them unreasonably all the time, unless I'm either seriously lagging or a mile ahead. This game, like many other kart racers, suffers from the fact that once you're away from the pack you're given an unfair advantage or unfair disadvantage.

    Yes, interlaced looks noticeably worse than progressive. Once you've switched from composite to component cables or higher there's just no turning back.

    Right you guys, Think it's best we get this going a.s.a.p, so I'll be the host for this years Art Collaboration, and Rabid-Noodles will be my Co-Host, we're going to look into a theme for this year, I have an idea in mind but I must discuss it with Rabid first to get his approval and to discuss possible other idea's for the theme. We're not going to aim as high as last year's because it was a struggle to fill so many character slots, but we are going to get more involved for the year coming because I possibly want to have the final image as some sort of Huge Banner at the Summer of Sonic 2013, which means deadlines must be hit! So stay tuned, and please join when I get this up and running! okie dokie peeps... THEME SET. Sonic Through Time What do I mean? Simple, I'll list a bunch of Sonic games and for whichever you choose you must draw that Sonic from that era, the main focus is SONIC -THROUGH - TIME So every image must have Sonic as it's main centre spot, however you can draw other characters FROM THAT GAME with Sonic to show off a little bit more :'D, you may also draw scenery too, what I'd like you to do though is try to at least imitate that Era's style be it the style it's drawn in or the way it's coloured/painted or both. i.e. Sonic 1 - Draw Classic Sonic standing in green hill zone i.e.2 - Sonic Adventure - Draw Sonic in SA style, and apply SA colouring However we aren't looking for a complete coloured piece, we want Sonic as a main focus here, so if you're planning on drawing Scenery/enemies/objects etc. please keep it simple. i.e. Sonic CD - CD Styled Sonic with some of those flowers around him i.e.2 - Sonic 2 - Sonic & Tails only. etc. We're going for a sort of Generations White Space sort of look, where the background is all white, but the hubs are just chunks of Greenhill that we remember etc. TL;DR - Basically the iconic parts from each game, just not too much. Format MUST be PNG's and must be as big as you can make it (well not too big) so we have nice large, high quality images to work with when we eventually get to printing stage for the banner. SIZES OF 3000x3000 RESOLUTION AND HIGHER, PNG IS A MUST! TRANSPARENT OR WHITE BACKGROUNDS ONLY. Time Schedules will be TIGHT, and i'm not kidding if we're going to pull this off for SoS we've literally only got like 5-6 months of preparation to get this thing done and there is lots of slots to fill up, so know I will be keeping a strict watch over you all, not because i'm a bitch but because we really have to get this into motion and me and John really don't have time for time wasters. If you feel you can't complete your image on time, don't take a slot, simple. If you run into problems that restrict you from completion on time, i may (and i mean MAY) issue you EXTRA time to complete it so your work isn't for nothing, however if you simply give up, you must contact either me or Rabid-Noodles IMMEDIATELY to let us know so we can find someone else to do it, or to fill it in ourselves. In the mean time I will be checking total costs of creating a banner, and if it's not too much I'm sure I can fit the bill, if not I will be opening a Paypal Donation pool to help out with collecting the necessary funds to create this piece. If you don't want your art to be used on the banner please don't join, I'm doing this as part of the community , gathering Sonic fans to Collaborate on something we can all look at and appreciate and to give back to SEGA for giving us this series to love and cherish. Don't post them here like the previous one, PM them to me or Rabid-Noodles and we'll save them in our super secret folder! Now the nit and grit is out of the way, lets list those games shall we?

    Resident Evil 6

    So knowing that this game wasn't that great I decided to get this for christmas since I like the RE series and knew eventually I would play this. I didn't know I'd be putting this on the same level of bad as Final Fantasy 13-2. I started up the game and find myself in the future as Leon and 'girl who almost looks like a guy' in what I presume is the tutorial stage, only I say presumed tutorial as the game introduces me to none of the mechanics I'll be using in the game but does offer me tons of QTE's and one button comments for scripted events, I then took a ride in a helicopter and then went back in time to how it all began. So I see's a man go all zombie and leon has a bad case of amnesia as he seems to have forgotten that you can't talk to zombies, then again I don't remember him having a long chat with the Will Smith zombie in Resident Evil 2 before he blew his head off. I'm now walking painfully slowly through a school looking for this blokes daughter, I want to go through this door, but I have to wait... what am I waiting for? I'm waiting for this NPC who is gonna die in the next quarter of an hour to open the door, why am I waiting for him? Because for some reason Leon can't open this door, only this NPC can open the door. That is this NPC's job, Leon must not do that NPC's job or else he won't get paid. Leon and girl who almost looks like a guy are now.... .. ... going to a church I guess... because... ... .. .. the plot demands it. As I decide that the gun shooting mechnics in the game are completely shit and resort to kung fu moves on the zombies I can't help but shake the following thought.... who exactly is my partner and why exactly should I care about her? No really. in RE5 Sheva was introduced to you right away, you knew why she was working with you and you built up a relationship with her before she shot you in the back. This woman is with you... because... .. ... .because the plot demands it! So off we go through the school looking for the way out, still looking for the way out... and I notice the key difference between this game and RE 4/5. RE 4/5's battles: Large areas which you can see enemies, you can move around the battle area and shoot and develop some kind of tactics to your movements. Even dark areas, enemies can be seen and hitting various body parts has an effect. RE 6's battles: Let's fit as many Zombies as we can into one room and have all the lights off so you just have to shoot randomly hoping you'll score a critical hit and not get cheaply hit by a zombie on the ground. Even with the ingame brightness set at max the game is stupidly dark, maybe it's doing that to hide just how bad it is? So I'm now on the streets and leon has a flashback to RE 2 and it suddenly becomes clear that we're never getting an RE 2 remake, we're getting this. Although it is quite cool even if you can see the various trucks and ambulances coming a mile off. I like how the zombies are clutching tools in this game now... some are holding knifes, others are holding wooden blanks and some are armed with... assault rifles... and they have the accuracy of SAS snipers...? You might be saying, 'well it does make it a little more interesting, the zombified swat teams are still holding their guns...' whilst thats true and I did think it was a nice touch, it did get utterly stupid when later on in the same chapter and ambulance crashes and you distinctly see the swat team inside it bend down and pick up their guns... later on one guy in the cathedral had a machine gun, turned into a zombie... started shooting as the zombie... I killed him... only for another zombie to pick up his gun and start shooting.... Have I mentioned fat zombie yet? Fat zombie appears in the games 29th 'fill a room with NPC's and enemies and hope you hit something' sequence, he takes tons of ammo to go down, at this early stage in the game you only have a handgun and a shotgun. Your shotgun rounds have more or less all gone thanks to super zombie who was introduced in the games 28th fill a room with NPC's and enemies sequence. When you eventually take him down you then escape on a bus.... only to encounter ANOTHER fat zombie, but heres the kicker, if you run out of ammo you might as well die since you can't hit him with melle attacks. So we now enter Call of Duty World at War graveyard, I call it that because like World at War the enemies don't stop respawning until you leave it. Only unlike the graveyard in RE 4, this one is void of all atmosphere and just looks like they ordered it from the big book of videogame graveyards and added rain effects to attempt to convince people that the game had an atmosphere. Oh hey a puzzle! Lets see how they'll test my noodle! 'Push the buttons on the statues... before they shoot you...' I'm now underground looking for someone named Deborah, I don't know who this woman is, I don't know if she's important to the plot, but thats ok, because for the past 4 hours I've been stuck with this other woman who I know nothing about so why should anything change now? MINECARTS! I'm in a minecart whats that low looking... BONK! Outch that hurt... ok so I have to push Square and X to duck no problem I'll keep it held down this time... BONK! Outch that hurt.... Ok so I have to push it just before I hit it.... ok here we go *pushes buttons* BONK! outch that hurt. Hey! I did it at the right time! This boss fight is incredible! I've done the same thing almost 3 times now run around in a circle whilst these NPC characters kill it for me, why do I even need to be here at all when ADA and girl who nearly looks like a guy can do all the work? Uh oh more minecarts... BONK! Outch that hurt... Well eventually I kill Deborah, I still don't really know why she was in the game but I'm sure that this random cut scene will explain everything.... Oh so girl who looks like a guy is an agent... hey wait a second... why didn't she report earlier that the secretary of stage was a nasty man? At this point I decided to stop playing and come on SSMB to tell you my initial impression of it. Resident Evil 6 is a terrible game made by twats. If Sonic 06 is manipulating glitches to progress through the game, RE 6 is manipulating the camera whilst someone else plays the game, because for the vast majority of the game I don't feel like I'm playing a game, I feel like I'm watching someone else do something and I'm just controling the camera. The game is so dark that I can't see most of the enemeis, when shooting, I really don't know why theres options to shoot other body parts since it does nothing. Why even bother with handguns when the whole game feels like it was designed to be played using shotguns.... then again why even use guns when all what Leon needs to do is use KUNG FU to defeat the undead, that won't have any long term problems.

    PS Vita

    Here's what lies the problem really. Most great Vita titles can also be bought on the PS3. That soon has to change. No wait, it has to change now if possible. I know the cross-features between the PS3 & Vita can make your experience with them much better but for Vita's sake that has to stop and Vita must have exclusives for itself. We need: God of War Vita Sly Cooper Vita (NOT Thieves of Time, because that's a PS3 title too) Ratchet & Clank Vita (Not Frontal Assault) Killzone Vita Gravity Rush Sequel Tales of Hearts/Project Diva localized (Put it live in the PS Store if want to avoid any extra costs!) Any great 3rd party exclusives And these games must not turn out like Declassified. Please. The Vita needs its own identity. I see no identity if it continues to feed off the same games the PS3 is also getting.

    What is Sonic to you?

    Something that I find thoroughly delightful except the odd things that aren't thoroughly delightful like '06, Chronicles, Archie and Underground but I don't let those awful parts of the franchise impact my enjoyment of it. at the end of the day, they're just things to be disregarded. I adore this franchise. I freaking adore it. From the mostly wonderful characters especially Sonic in particular to the consistently fantastic music (Except Chronicles obviously) to the fascinating world the games are set in. Angel Island? Molecurpea? The United Federation? South Island? Westside Island? Apotos? Spagonia? I could go on. And the sense of speed that no other game can truly emulate. I even love collecting the merchandise and attending Summer of Sonic There is so much in this franchise that grabs my full attention and affection. Games, cartoons, music, merch, fan events. I have such a deep degree of regard for it that I have written/I write for two highly acclaimed Sonic websites; Here and Concept:"Mobius", extending/having extended my affection and knowledge of the series to them.

    There's three reasons I'm against Gen III remakes- 1- The last thing that'll breathe fresh air into the series is yet more remakes. 2- If they're part of Gen V then they'll be on DS, which isn't necessary anymore. And they can't exactly be Gen VI without new games coming out first. 3- There'll be more remade generations than original ones.

    Sonic Colors's graphic's suck? WTF are you talking about? They sure as hell top Mario Galaxy's graphics, and it goes without saying that this is on a Wii instead of the 360 or PS3, i.e. it's not known for making stellar graphics like those two consoles. There's a lot to criticize about Colors, but that definitely isn't one of them.

    You can do either since the game represents both! That's totally fine! Enjoy doing the style, it's pretty fun! Free Riders is Free, as for Transformed...? hmm.. you'll have to wait and see~ I need to book you in for something in case someone chooses said game you're working on before you show it.

    Whatever this announcement is, I hope it can rekindle my interest in the series. Pokémon is built on an unchanging formula. It works, but after 5 Generations of it (including 4 Generations of 3 clone games, with 2 Generations being remade and the most recent Generation having clone sequels), I'm gagging for something new. It's gotta be a fresh new look for Gen VI or a Wii U game following in the creative footsteps of Colo and XD. Otherwise I won't be interested will be interested but will vehemently deny it before purchasing on day one.

    http://kotaku.com/5971675/the-playstation-2-just-began-its-victory-lap-ceases-shipping-in-japan Looks like the PS2 is finally dead. I wonder if we'll still see games release for it for a while yet, though. It's still been getting the annual FIFA and PES games for example. I didn't get a PS2 until the BUZZ! games came out later in its life, and never got much else for it, but I did have lots of fun with the BUZZ! games with my wife, friends and family. We would play every week after Sunday dinner and have a laugh every time. Anyone else have fond memories of the PS2? EDIT: Sony confirms PS2 production has ceased worldwide 150m units sold globally http://www.computerandvideogames.com/385135/sony-confirms-ps2-production-has-ceased-worldwide/

    We do all know that it's Christmas right? And it seems that most game companies more or less wind down two weeks before Christmas actually starts? From the looks of things most of the Sumo guys talk to us here from Sumo, so if thats the case I'm not suprised things have been a tad quiet.

    Sonic Advance - The Forgotten Series?

    Advanced 1 is pretty fun yet pretty dull at the same time. It's a fairly rudimentary Sonic platformer, but it's very well made with good level design. I also liked the differences in the characters Sonic is the hard mode; Tails is the easy mode; Knuckles is the normal mode and Amy is the hardest mode (although I love playing as her because of how challenging it is.) Advanced 2 I have never played, but from what I've seen, It looks quite a downgrade in quality compared to Advance 1 and seems to focus on speed over platforming. Advanced 3 is, by far, the best in the series and the best portable Sonic game made in the series so far. The game has a very nicely designed levels with a good mix over speed and platforming, the level tropes were unique like the toy kingdom and the partner gimmick was done well and added a new dimension to the game. It also meant that you didn't have to play the same game about 4 times just to get the best ending; you just play the game once. This issue being rectified is enough for me to say it's the best in the advanced trilogy. Also THIS. THIS. THIS. THIS. THIS. THIS. THIS.
