    Halloweeny stuff~ ...with a Shadow chao! 8D Totally didn't expect a chao other than Cheese to appear in a wallpaper, much less any official artwork. Nice touch, I guess? "It's like stealing candy from a baby!" I've been wanting to be the first person to post a new wallpaper, but got beaten everytime. jkjk

    The mutability of the Sonic series

    It boggles my mind that Sonic isn't dead. Not saying it's a bad franchise or anything, But as much as Sonic has jumped drastically in pretty much every aspect of the game and as much as he's dropped the ball, he's still kicking. Series that have been through half as much have been dead in the water. The little blue fucker is unstoppable and better than ever and if you think about it it's mindblowing. In a way, his failures have only made him stronger.

    You're missing the point. Secret Rings had resoundingly more appeal at its time of release, probably due to Sonic 06 being so bad in comparison but also due to genuine hype of what it had to offer on its own merits. People were excited for it, and previews were positive. This is reminiscent of a situation we've had for several games now regardless of the fact that Secret Rings aged quickly. Point blank: There's a game on the horizon we're excited for, and as with games we're excited for, criticism or anything less than 100% hyperactive-bouncing-off-the-walls hype is seen as an attack to some degree. Those who hold negative or even neutral opinions on the same thing others hold positive opinions for- even if they've played the fucking thing- are pinned to the wall and more forced to justify themselves. Or, if something is clarified, those who had doubts have their faces rubbed in mud, and this is regardless of the fact that said doubts always came with the caveat of "I would love to be proven wrong, because that ultimately means the game would be better and thus everyone would be happy in that scenario." It's actually quite annoying the way people act when a game is in it's hype phase. <3

    Well, I finally joined this generation with my brand new Zelda Wii U!!! *insert amazing unveiling song here* w Makes a lovely couple with my 3DS: Too bad I'm tired of playing Wind Waker though on the Gamecube (I haven't even finished playing Skyward Sword at that) but I'm sure the game will surprised me while playing.

    Awful filler character in a very bad racing game who can't compete with the other characters in any decent way with an unfunny obnoxious meme that, suprise sur-fucking-prise, made it's way as yet another forced meme into the godawful Archie comics. Oh you're so funny and clever Archie. Clap. Clap. Clap. Theory? What theories? It's a plush doll that's obviously been augmented with mechanics which clearly exhibits no sentience beyond what has been programmed into it. Metal Sonic and Metal Knuckles exhibit triumph upon winning a race, what makes Tails Doll different from them considering it's an artificial construct like them?

    The NSMB series gets well deserved shit mostly for each one being almost identical to the other. Levels looks and feel the same despite having different layouts, and the music is reused throughout all the titles; they almost feel like expansions instead of sequels to each other. The only thing NSMBU is noticeably guilty of is reusing music though. General tropes are reused (Grassland, Desert, Forest, Iceworld, Fireworld, etc), but they're all given a new look (my memory's a bit fuzzy on the forest and castles/towers). Honestly, NSMBU is the best 2D Mario platformer in ages. Does it deserve to be higher than W101? Fuck no, but I'm honestly not surprised by it being pretty high up; it's really damn good. Also that challenge mode thing NSMBU has is the best damn thing to ever happen to Mario; it's really addicting going for gold. It also shows how much effort the devs put into the levels considering how well everything flows for speed runs and the like.

    I wish the OVA would've had a successful run just so then we would've had more fuckin' OVA. The OVA is still my favorite version of the series and that probably won't change anytime soon.

    How come every time someone posts a negative impression of the game, everybody goes looking for reasons as to why they're wrong? Whats the top excuses so far? "They thought it was a boost game?" "They need practice." "They're playing it wrong" Anything else?

    The mutability of the Sonic series

    If AoSth/SatAM didn't exist and didn't establish Sonic's love of Chilli Dogs, we wouldn't have this bit of pure brilliance; His liking for Chili Dogs is actually given more prominence above running as seen in his profile in the Official Japanese SADV3 guide; Bottom line in the info area is '好きなもの....チリドッグ' basically translates to 'likes....chili dogs'

    Once again, that's not the point; she's saying that whenever there is hype for a new game, regardless of its perceived problems, the fans that have less than a positive impression are always treated like they have done something wrong by the ones who are more excited, with most neutral fans having to justify their opinions more. Basically people are acting like any sort of criticim towards a hyped game as some sort of personal attack, and get testy over it.

    Video games, to me, are something I regard very highly as an art form, and that's a stance I'll defend vehemently. It's something that's very important to me, and as such, it upsets me when I see uninspired, repetitious games. Game mechanics are very important, obviously, but there's more to a game than that in my opinion. The New Super Mario Bros. games have new level layouts, but the visuals change very little between games, the music is recycled and uninspired to begin with (I can not fucking stand the NSMB series' music, personally), there is no story whatsoever, there is no world-building or lore to speak of, and there's nothing to compel me to play other than the level design being solid. It's a game in its most basic form, and I personally don't think it really shines in any aspect at all. At least not to me. Super Meat Boy was just as basic but I vastly preferred the design of that over Mario. Lots of this is just my opinion, obviously, and it should be kept in mind that I just don't find Mario all that fun to begin with, but the entire NSMB series, to me, is such a blatant lazy cash-in that it does really upset me to see it get praise and sales when brilliant games like Kid Icarus are left in its shadow. The fact that Kid Icarus Uprising made less money than New Super Mario Bros. 2 and is far less likely to get a sequel is a god damn tragedy.

    If this was some random gal on YouTube that just happened to be at TGS then fine, but this is IGN. You'd think a professional publisher, especially if they're doing a preview video for a game to go up on their channel and website, would at least get a decent player with a lick of knowledge about the game to play.

    The Cake Topic

    We already have and threads, so why not show some love for cake? Because it's a lie. This topic is for discussing cake flavors, making awful Portal jokes, and rejoicing over the diabetes-causing dessert we all know and love! 11/10 would eat. I'm sure that we're all familiar with the topic of cake, but I'll include a brief definition for the sake of being formal. Cake is a pastery with many varieties of flavor, filling, icing, and toppings. Cake is traditionally served at events such as birthdays, weddings, baby showers, anniversaries, graduations, etc. It's classified as a dessert, and is generally only served on special accessions. However, there is no shame in saying "f**k the police" and having cake on an ordinary day.

    Footstooling decimate's Yoshi's recovery, opens up a whole catalog of follow-ups with Sonic's Spindash if he footstools during a Spindash jump, and can open up Jab Locks with certain characters. Glad to see it's back. I thought that was a nice addition.

    Well this is certainly delivering beyond what I was thinking. Funny, because the way I see it the more the characters remember the old world, the less these changes feel like a middle finger and more of an apology to the old fans like me who liked it the way it was before. Like how Capcom did DmC except they weren't being sympathetic about it when they changed things. They created two new groups from this altered continuity of Sonic, they could at least show the old fans they still cared instead of ignoring it like you want them to, and in turn imply old fans to get over it or get out of the continuity they loved for 2 decades.

    Most people have a dislike for bad characters, but they go for the easiest thing to pin the blame on (like humans) because they don't like to put much effort in critical thinking. Screw thinking deep about the subject, let's just make a scapegoat and move on. This series should focus on Sonic and the good guys stopping the bad guys, as it was never about the animals and more about Sonic vs. Eggman when the series first began. Especially when in this same world of "animals being the primary species" we've had three different species of aliens (the Wisps, the Black Arms, and I'm assuming the Zeti), several different godlike eldritch abominations (Chaos, Iblis, Dark Gaia, Solaris, Light Gaia), and Chao, yet it's the humans people cry foul over. No, this is an arbitrary double standard. You wanna convince me otherwise? Stop giving a damn about it and simply demand for more animals to equally populate the world. We don't have to shrink one group for the other when a resolution can be reached with making the animals equal in number with the humans. I mean really, notice how despite being around humans absolutely none of the bat an eye about a talking blue hedgehog? It's like the same case with Looney Tunes here when a talking rabbit, pig, or duck goes out to a city for a job or to play baseball, again, with a bunch of humans. I could pile on examples, but I've made my case - if we can have more than one animal, we can have more than one human in this series.

    Well, let's be fair now: "Bowser's holding Princess Peach hostage again. You, your brother and your bros must stop him" isn't exactly a substantial narrative by any stretch of the imagination. That's an exaggeration on Dissy's part, but still.

    Um, yeah I happen to actually like humans being around, thank you. And I judge them the same way I would the Sonic characters if they were significant characters and not just background, not because of their species. It's the same reason I would like or dislike other characters, because their interesting. Whereas I dislike Elise, I really like Prof. Pickle. Having humans around has no detrimental impact over this franchise anymore than non-humans do. Now if you'd like more anthro characters populating this world, that's fine. It would make sense seeing that Sonic and his friends stand out compared to much of the world. But this franchise started out with a hedgehog and a human, so it makes little sense to single out humans for existing later on and not foxes, echidnas, bats, aliens, crocodiles, and bees for existing when they weren't present until succeeding entrees came along. Seriously, enough with the goddamn double standards people.

    Now THIS is my kind of thread! Oh boy, which one is my favourite? It would have to Chocolate Gateau (Or just Chocolate Cake) I mean, it's just chocolate, covered in chocolate, and topped with chocolate. How can you go wrong with it? Sometimes the chocolate can be a bit too much to stomach, but I say it's worth it! I think Homer can do a good representation of how I react to such delicacies.

    How else were the supposed to actually explain Prof Oak stating that they're were only 151 discovered Pokemon despite 100 new Pokemon being readily available a little bit west in Johto? A retcon is the only way to solve stuff like that, you can't logically give it a story reason without it sounding forced and dumb.

    Cheesecake is the best cake. It's sweet and creamy, with a twinge of tartness from the cream cheese, and then it has a crumbly graham crust under. It's awesome; you need to try it. Granted, I'm more of a pie lover as it's a more robust dish, and subsequently I can easily co-op cake discussions. Is cheesecake really a cake, or is it a pie? Hmmmm.

    Took the words right out of my mouth, Rants. My favourite kind of cake is Tuxedo Truffle Cake. I mean, just LOOK at this. I want some right now because of this ;w; But yeah, there's a lot of great kinds of cake out there. I'm more of a chocolate cake kind of person but I'm open to some others, such as cheesecake. It depends on where you get it and stuff like that, I think. Generally speaking though, cheesecake is pretty good. You'll have to try it yourself if you ever get the chance.

    RIP Hiroshi Yamauchi

    Reading this news came as a massive shock to me. It's a devastating blow to the gaming industry as a whole. The man was a legend, and if not for him, the industry wouldn't be where it is today - not just when it comes to Nintendo, but everyone else as well. Everything and every company that surged out of the crash can be traced back to the efforts and the monopoly of this man. An end of an era for Nintendo so to say the least, as his influence as the top investor would still color a lot of Nintendo's decisions up to this day. He'll sorely be missed.
