    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    TMNT Goes Nickelodeon

    After watching a few of the episodes that Nick put up, I can say it’s not bad. It’s not amazing, but it can be fun and entertaining. The highlight is the animation for action scenes, they’re phenomenal. The voice acting has ranged from solid to great too, even Cena was pretty good as Drax. I do hope they start to give the series a direction in time, though. After 2012’s connected plot, it can be a bit aimless.

    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.

    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?

    Sonic Riders - The Sands Of Time (Sand Ruins) ft. Jasmine Harvey aka Fallen4Freedom (46% complete) Added flutes and strings to the last part before the chord change. Sometimes you gotta just take a song and shuffle it around a little bit. Variety. The chord change was a tough part to get through. It was indeed as I predicted it would be. I had to make it connect to the next part, which I wanted to start died out somehow, so I made an abrupt end and a two measure break. Sounds bad on paper but the added effects I have really make those instruments really pop. After I get this next part down, I'll be ready for Jasmine to record her vocals. It's funny because it's like she understands the direction I want to take with this, without even having to ask. Great minds think alike I suppose, and hopefully it shows in the final product. I'm trying my best, as usual

    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.

    Archie Sonic Main Discussion

    Sonic Universe #5-#8: It is great to finally reach Mobius: 30 Years Later after knowing about it for a while. And good grief, after the very rocky and very Penders M25YL saga, and its good but somewhat rushed conclusion in issues #166-#167, I think M30YL is easily the best of the bunch. Probably because it is mostly cut loose from the Penders M25YL saga and can basically do its own thing, with it writing out all of Penders characters aside from Lara-Su. Hell, even Knuckles gets written out, despite the fact he was the main character of M25YL, presumably because Universe #9-#12 is focused on Knuckles in the present day. Plot is fairly simple. Since M25YL, Sonic and Sally have gotten married, they have 2 new kids to replace the old kids wiped out by the timeline shift, the world is at peace. Lien-Da however is working with her conspiritors, the Dark Presence, to take out Sonic and Sally, but get foiled by an arriving Silver. Silver, having apparently come straight from issue #196, warns Sonic and Sally about a traitor and a big catastrophe. The Dark Presence however storm the castle, as well as capturing Tails and Mina in their hotel, forcing Sally, the kids and a knocked out Silver have to hide in the castle's safe room while Sonic and current guardian Lara-Su work together. They form a new set of Freedom Fighters with Tails and Mina's 2 kids, Bunnie and Antoine's 2 kids and Vector's son. Lein-Da is able to break Shadow out of his stasis beneath the castle, but rather than wanting to rule again, he decides he wants to destroy the world, and kills Lien-Da by breaking her time bracelet erasing her from the current timeline, which is pretty awesome. And to wipe out humanity, he gets Tikhaos - a combination of Perfect Chaos and Tikal, who has an unquenchable hunger for chaos energy, which is such a dark idea but one that I love. Shadow retreats to somewhere unknown to come back to rule the world when everyone is dead, while Sonic, the new Freedom Fighters, and then eventually everyone else fights Tikhaos, eventually winning out. Everything is fine, the Dark Presence has no leader and want nothing to do with Shadow anymore, and a new set of Freedom Fighters are ready to help save the world. Silver goes back to his future, with still the question of a traitor in the ranks of the Freedom Fighters. Compared to the overlong M25YL, M30YL is definetly more straightforward, with Shadow and Lien-Da being our antagonists, while Sonic has to cope with being an older man who is king while we get Lara-Su being more used to being a guardian without her dad or the Chaotix to assist her. We also get many kid characters, who are all fine if very much in that vein of being "original characters, do not steal". If a mixed species couple have kids, the son will be the father's species, the daughter will be the mother's species. Although I did notice apparently for Mina's daughter, she has gotten Tails' muzzle which is slightly weird honestly in certain frames. I find it especially funny that Antoine's son has the French accent and Bunnie's daughter has the Southern accent. Not to mention the apparent implication that Bunnie's kids were born with cybernetics? Wait, if Bunnie is robotisiced from the waist down how did she get preg... you know what, never mind. Still, I think the story works for me way more than M25YL because it feels far more connected to the actual Sonic comics, rather than it being Penders just doing his own thing in a Sonic comic. The formation of a set of Freedom Fighters who are all descendents is a cool idea. Sonic being married to Sally with kids and dealing with his age is great, with several great moments for him, like calming down Tails' kids and Lara-Su when things are bad, still being sad at the loss of his first set of kids, and the way his marriage with Sally is handled. I love this page from #6 especially, it feels like a commentary on how useless Sally was in M25YL. Sally and Sonic's relationship is very well written, Tails and Mina work really well together as well, including Mina saying she'll have a word with Sonic about bringing her kids into the fight and Tails being a bit of a confident guy now. Even Shadow, as much as he is basically a Bond villian in this future, at least excuses his actions by being like in Adventure 2 and being motivated by what he felt Maria would of wanted. If he couldn't change the world from ruling it, he'll just purge it. I think the darker elements are handled well here, Sonic can be dark if done in the right dosage, and Tikhaos is actually very tragic. It feels like the kind of thing I would want from a possible future story, rather than the politics and pretentious dialogue and awkward relationship stuff from M25YL. I mean, I guess if I had to find flaws, again, in M25YL, Knuckles was the main character, so arguably M30YL perhaps isn't being that faithful with him absent, but I don't care to be honest. I do find it funny that with issues #1-#4 all about Shadow trying to be a good guy, these issues are about him being a bastard. Must of been confusing to anyone who hadn't read the M25YL issues. There is also the issue of Silver coming in, and apparently confirming this is indeed the future, rather than a possible alternate reality which arguably gets rid of any wiggle room. But then I'm sure you can have a timey-wimey explanation from things being different here than in the present. I guess this is the end of the M25/30YL storylines. At this point we're only about 4 years away from the Archie reboot, and as far as I'm aware this is the last story. Still, it had its fun spots, even in the Penders era, but I definetly think this is the strongest of it. Urgh, I just wish my copies of IDW's Sonic #7 and #8 would arrive. May have to file a complaint at this rate.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    "Dorky Silver" is when he's at his best imo. Gives the guy some humility without turning him into a complete joke. Him trying his hardest to be friendly but being a bit awkward just makes him endearing compared to when he was just another stiff imo. I like the contrast between Silver trying to be more of a proper hero and Sonic's more laidback approach to everything.

    Before people say it could be "just a general JRPG reference": That camera angle is almost never used for JRPG's. Camelot loves to use it, though. They used it in Shining Force and Golden Sun at least. However, I don't want to read too much into it either. I'm just hopeful we'll get GS content because of the ballot.

    A lot of the bad stigma for clones in the past came from the misconception that it diverted resources away from making wholly original characters, which was never really true, at least not in the sense that most people imagined - Sakurai even back in the day went on record saying that he could make a pretty large number of clones with the resources it took to create just one proper newcomer, and that the sheer amount of them we got in Melee was more down to time constraints than anything else. They've been welcomed more readily in Ultimate because Sakurai has made that distinction crystal fucking clear this time - these aren't glory stealers, they're just the little bonuses on top of the main event. The fact that many of the new echos are fan favourites that would have been only Assist Trophies at best before - and some of which that were ATs before - certainly helps

    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.
