    So, after a very long time, I finally have my own car! Used, from a family friend who's also an engineer, so it's in incredible condition, almost feels like it's new. It's very satisfying to drive a car of my own, rather than borrow my mom or dads car like I have been this past year.

    Your outlook for the 3D series

    Hard to have any real positive outlook after Forces turned out how it did after 4 years of waiting and at this point I have no clue where they go next. I doubt they have much of an idea of what to do next either. Their return to Boost was a flop and sidescrolling gameplay in the 3D games has only gotten worse and worse with each time it's used since it's return in Unleashed. Adventure is the most requested style, but I doubt they have the talent, funds, and money to give it a real shot. Not only that, it feels like the team is burnt out or just floating along. There's no real passion in their games anymore. Mania was full of it. You could tell the people working on it wanted to deliver something special and worked their asses off to provide it. I don't see that from Sonic Team, I can't feel or see that in their recent games. The team needs people who want to do everything in their power to try and deliver a game like Mania or Unleashed that looks and feels chock full of passion and effort, but I doubt that will happen. I really don't know what they do next, but I'd lean towards it being another lackluster title, maybe a movie-tie in (which will sink my expectations further, but whatever at that point) in 2019. I don't have high hopes.

    Well, for all Switch Owners, I wholeheartedly recommend A Hat in Time, it's a great 3D Platformer that harkens back the N64 era games and heavily inspired by Super Mario Sunshine, it's a great buy and I bet being able to play it anywhere will only enhance the experience. ...Now if you'll forgive me, I'll sit on a corner waiting half a year for the new DLC on PS4, since they only announced it for PC as of now.

    My video game tastes are pretty niche (if that's the right word for it) compared to usual here. That, or I rarely ever actually talk about the games I like.

    Well looks like I made it through another birthday. The second cake turned out good and the nachos were solid. My computer only gave me issues this morning and other wise worked fine. My little thrown together pic at least got me drawing something today and even though it's not great it serves its purpose for the most part. Now tomorrow it's back to the regular old grind and I can put another birthday behind me peacefully. Thanks to everyone who offered their support and sorry if I still came across as a downer. No promises about being more positive, but I'll at least have a go at being a little bit less pessimistic and negative. Have a good night everyone.

    When you think about it, Amy in the pre-Unleashed era was honestly one of the more influential characters, even if her role wasn't always combat orientated. Sonic and the more combat oriented people might be the big faces of the band so to speak, but in many ways she was the one who often times noticed or helped out in the small but important ways that others overlooked. Take Gamma for instance: A machine who blindly followed orders no matter what, proving himself to be the best of Eggman's robotic soldiers at the time, but harboring doubts when he saw Eggman's callousness towards his fellow machines who had failed. She managed to influence Gamma to start doubting Eggman and was brave enough to stand against Sonic despite him wanted to destroy Gamma, thus allowing for Gamma to not only turn against Eggman despite his limited programming, but also drive him to destroy several of Eggman's strongest soldiers at the time and free his trapped Flicky family. Shadow was a grief-stricken revenge minded person, driven only by distorted memories of his past and friend, and a desire to punish humanity for destroying his life. She managed to get through Shadow's memory block in Sonic Adventure 2 where no one else was able to and convince him of the error of his actions and the true intentions of his dead friend, not only allowing for the world to be saved from Gerald's revenge beyond the grave, but also in the long term ensured a permanent new ally in the fight against evil. Silver was a well-intended, but sadly gullible pawn who was so desperate for the salvation of his future, that he was mislead by evil into nearly ensuring a far worse future for everyone. Yet deep down he harbored doubts of his mission, but did not see any reason to change since he believed it was what needed to be done, even if unpleasant. She was able to plant the seeds of doubt in Silver's mind in the erased 06 continuity by defending Sonic from him despite the drastic power difference, and made him start questioning his actions working for Mephiles, thus ensuring that in the long term he would be able to help put an end to the threat of Solaris. She's not the best fighter, and her bratty moments and obsession with Sonic does get in her way at times, but when the chips were down, she often times ended up being a more important catalyst for change for several of the most prominent characters in the franchise than any amount of the flashy kickassery of her larger than life friends, and did so primarily through her smaller actions of being an honest and kind soul.

    For at least the tenth time now, Ken has announced a new release date for TLSC: I'd really thought that he'd finally learned to not announce any dates until he's completely certain, but apparently not.

    What looks to be an updated version of the cover was found at the bottom of an EB Games Australia in-Store advertisement. I tapped on the image, zoomed in on it and found no mention of a download being required from what I can make out. Look at the bottom where it says “pre-order special edition”. Again, you’ll have to zoom in. Imgur album comparison. https://www.imgur.com/a/fgEmHVz

    I never thought about it before, but I hope the DW Christmas specials under Chris Chibnall will continue to be actually “Christmassy”. That was one of the best things about Moffat’s run, and I’d hate to see them slip back into the RTD-style “standard adventure you’d expect to see in any other episode except it’s happening at Christmastime” fare.

    The tech in those new RTX graphics cards looks mad cool, but I really wish these huge advancements were applied to consoles, first and foremost. That way the industry might actually design around this tech, and make games easier to make and look better across the board, as a standard; as is, it just feels like games will have the "option" for this lighting model now, which is a lot less interesting imo and might just make things harder to pull off across the board. Though just having the ability to have realtime raytracing in the first place with even the low-end cards is really tempting personally, even if I have no idea whether I'd use it or not

    Gamescom technically starts tomorrow, but I wouldn't really expect a new trailer for the game. Also I smell moreso a Forces situation than a delay and the game itself might actually not have much content, but that's just me tho...

    I still find it hilarious how, of all the things Maruku could have been mistranslated as during the localization process of Kirby Super Star, Nintendo's localizers chose Marx. Henceforth convincing several people in the anglosphere that said villain is not just a lying creepy douchebag, but also a metaphor for Communism.

    You realise that's a scenario that could happen right? The audience is 6-12 year old American children*, there's going to be some like that in there. I don't care at all about the usage myself, but hey. *Not that it's exclusively American parents that may take offence, not with the mother and child exchange I saw in person just a few days ago.

    on one hand I'm sad that we're getting a third CG Star Wars show in a row rather than something like Genndy's 2D clone wars series, but on the other, I will admit that this show's production values look really good for a TV show, and it's one of the best looking attempts at the Cel-shaded look I've seen on a TV show too, beating out previous stuff Disney's done like Tron Uprising, which already looked good in a "you've gotta get used to it" kind of way. Still not Paperman-level, but it's something.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    I generally liked it when writers try and get creative with swears. As long as its not too forced, it adds a unique charm to the character. We all know what he wanted to say there. Cleaver censor dodging gets us around the obvious and keeps him in character. No controversy, no fuss, no muss.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    I'd rather the comics include some mild cursing where appropriate (i.e. When the damn writers aren't going out of their damn way to force damn swear words into every damn sentence like in Shadow the damn Hedgehog) than bend over backwards to avoid it at all costs. People swear, it's a fact of life. Trying to use euphemisms or write around an offending word (especially a mild one) can come off as awkward when a succinct , "Oh crap!" would get the job done better.

    The roster seems more of a Sonic Team/Sega decision rather than Sumo picking and choosing which Sonic characters to have, probably explains the character decisions. For some reason Vector's car reminds me of this. As for the game itself, it looks like it tries to be like the first two but something seems off looking at the footage just can't put my finger to it and don't mean the team talk either. Then again will this game get a higher score than All-Star Fruit Racing as in its competitor? Oh never knew that they had a Nottingham team, thought it is just Sheffield and their art studio in India. (looks it up and also finds out that they have studios in Newcastle and bought The Chinese Room too, also restructured since the Foundation 9 days) Not the same Sumo indeed and imagine that the people that were there during the Gremlin/Infogrames Sheffield House/early Sumo days are all retired. So if it is done in Nottingham, then it is their first ever game. When a studio does a game for the first time, it is always unproven especially considered the reputation that the studio as a whole had when it comes to the Sega titles. Since it opened in 2016, then this game would have been in development for 2 years max but probably even less than that. It is a bit of a concern since it is pretty much a new team lacking in experience just using a well known name. That sounds pretty familiar doesn't it?

    Yup. An oddly shape hill that resembles a loop and Sonic feels sad and nostalgic at the same time because "Oh man, we have these everywhere where I come from. I miss home, Tom." It could just be a very beautiful scene. I'm reminded of this At 2:28. Imagine that but with Sonic. Or even a live action version of the Sonic CD intro (P.S I chose this version cuz I like the remix of the Boom song) Him just letting loose and finally getting to free roam, running past all of the wild life. Running on the water. We can finally get a taste as the audience, what its like to be him. Why he loves adventure; why he loves to run. Why he loves freedom.

    Your dream remaster

    Sonic Unleashed Remastered is the one I'm pining for the most right now. Ideally: - Tighten up the framerate issues with modern hardware so we have the full 60fps experience -Fully custom controls or at least the ability to remap the jump dash/homing attack -Severely nerf medal requirements if not outright removing them -Tweak Sonic's controls to make him a bit less slippery and make things like the drift more reliable -Increase the Werehog's base damage and streamline the "growth"/level up process to 2 or 3 categories so it's easier and faster to unlock new moves for him. Also give the player more moves to start with. -Werehog battle music toggle -Straight up replace the tornado minigame with something else or just remove it -Keep the level design mostly intact and let it speak for itself -Include all DLC.

    Your outlook for the 3D series

    It's bad! It's bad, and I don't think Sonic Team has the slightest idea how to fix things, and they probably don't have the resources to try to figure it out. I like to think that after Mania's incredible success and Forces' poor reception, they're going to step back, look at what the series has become, look at what it could be instead, and genuinely try to sort out their problems and do better...but that's the same desperate hope I've clung to after every mistake and failure over the last 15-ish years, and the same promise they've made and broken again and again. I just do not believe they have what it takes to make great Sonic games at this point and I struggle to imagine how they'd change that.

    Man you really sold me on introvert Sonic. Your read on what he's doing when dispensing philosophy (he's deflecting) really clinches it for me. I've never really been able to see Game!Sonic as anything but an extrovert, he's sociable, and making friends just seems to come as natural as breathing to his main incarnation, but I've always found the introvert of Sonic X fascinating. It was a trait in myself that I have never seen in Sonic before. Now it's possibly my favorite take on the character and in Sonic X he lines up perfectly with your description. Another surprising trait that's stuck out to me is how calm and lackadaisical he can be when he doesn't have a world to save. Again in the early days Sonic was often described as brash and impatient but those elements are severely down played ever since Sonic gained a voice. OVA!Sonic kicks back on a lounge chair at the beach, and low and behold Adventure 1 opens up to practically the same scene, and he's sleeping under a tree at the end of it. Again in Sonic X there isn't a tree or roof he hasn't slept on, or flower he hasn't sniffed. My take away is that he travels for a purpose, he runs to a destination and takes the time to appreciate the location, nature, culture etc. That's why I love the fact his Japanese voice actor is bilingual. It gives credence to Sonic's image as an experienced world traveler.

    In SC/ SG e SLW Sonic and Tails were forced too much. I didn't feel any emotions when Tails protected Sonic from Eggman in Sonic Colours, or when he was thrown in the capsule by mistake. There is no feeling, it doesn't keep you on "spikes", is just a mass of "try hard" scenes that, honestly, didn't work. And in my opinion 2010-present Sonic Isn't Sonic, is a flat clone.

    I like Sonic's personality in the storybook games a lot. He's shown to be his normal, cocky, careless self, and is quite selfless and self sacrificing, as well as forgiving towards both Shahra and Merlina (Who both were manipulated into doing bad things). However, there's also a hint of a darker-side to Sonic. His inability to trust Eggman (poor king Shahryar), and he's shown to be quite vengeful towards certain villains (condemning Eazor to his lamp, destroying King Arthur, slaying dragons without a second thought). While I feel there's room for improvement (he can come off a little bland at times), this is one of my favourite portrayals of Sonic. Ideally for me, there'd be some mix in of some of the attitude and dorkiness from the Warren/Graft take on Sonic, but all-in-all, I think the storybook games got it pretty right.

      All this Ubisoft news and yet nothing on their supposed “investigation”. Huh, almost feels like it was a empty statement they weren’t taking that seriously done to appease the easily satisfied masses, (as they know how quick many people are in this culture to moving on from controversies)so they could move on to announcements that would go back to hyping up gamers tm and games journalists
