    Sonic 3: Angel Island Revisited (or Sonic 3 A.I.R. for short) is a mod... remake... thing of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. It takes the Steam version of Sonic 3 and overhauls it using an external .exe, adding 16:9 support, Achievements (with unlockables attached to them, a la the Mania Medallions), options for both emulated and remastered soundtracks, level design tweaks, new control options (Tails can drop out of his flight into ball form), a Time Attack mode, and much, much more. Essentially, it's the Taxman version of Sonic 3 we've been waiting for, and the full game released today! I can't believe how quickly the remake's creator, Eukaryot, managed to get it all together - the full Sonic 3 & Knuckles experience is here, from Angel Island all the way to the Doomsday Zone, now in 16:9, 60fps, with smooth Mania style rotations and all! I've yet to play through the game in full, but this is a seriously impressive effort. I'm not sure to what extent we'll be seeing updates (I'd love the ability to play through the game with the prototype level order), but huge props to Eukaryot.

    Fun is not something one considers when being followed on Twitter. But this... does put a smile on my face.

    The real shock is that Rouge still uses flip-phones in 2019.

    Great episode. Too bad there's only two, because I'm loving watching the characters interact with each other. Shadow just completely ignoring Rouge and Omega was great as was him stealing the Chao's popcorn and causing it to cry. Hopefully, we get some more shorts for the next game, but with the whole cast.

    Knuckles cracks me up. Tyson's done a brilliant job in designing his personality, just as he did in the Mania Adventures shorts. Have some gifs: A decent episode. It's a shame there's only two for TSR. Hopefully they'll do more of these animations for future projects.

    So the second part has been given a proper release date. Looks like the time didn't align for anything closer to launch after all. Also that is definitely an expression Shadow only reserves for his Sonic rivalry.

      I continue to be baffled by Sega's decision to include Denuvo in TSR.

      ...did they ever say why Zavok was working for Eggman in TSR?

      Amazon still has't shipped my TSR yet. Anyone else in the same boat?

      A thought I've found myself having of late is that I'm kind of growing tired of conflict in stories without reward or where the characters just suffer only to die in the end (no, this isn't a GoT post as I neither watch or read the books). It's kind of a more nuanced feeling than that though and kind of hard to explain.
      As an example, I think it has to do a lot with my state of mind sometimes such as when I watched Madoka Magika my own depression really allowed that show to resonate with me so much. Yet my favorite character met a horrible end and for as much as I enjoyed eth rest of the series their death and the emotions surrounding it just left me feeling empty. Even when everything wrapped up and they got a little more closure it was more painful to see them continue to lose everything despite their good intentions even if they could be awfully selfish. It was part of what I enjoyed about seeing the Rebellion movie as it gave them some life and joy back but then it just had to have that ending which also sucked. But even then my depression at the time that I watched it in a world where everyone was all sunshine and rainbows was a breath of fresh air where I could escape my emotions by seeing others faced theirs. Since then though I've just found myself growing tired and negativity s everywhere.
      It doesn't matter if it's in fiction, be it videogames, movies or what not, or in real life or online. Everywhere I look right now is constant negativity and the need to attack everyone else for feeling differently bar those hollow worded positivity posts that I always see popping up everywhere. It's just getting overwhelming and so when I do retreat to entertainment to just feel better by being entertained the constant suffering in fiction as well with no resolution that feels earned and rewarding just makes even trying to entertain myself feel like a hollow pursuit. 
      I remember when the stories I used to be exposed to would start off lightly and full of joy until the protagonist was challenged with growing stakes along the way where there were frequent celebrations of victory along the way. Even at the darkest of those times when the stakes were at the most dire success brought back the joy from the beginning and it was cathartic to see victory achieved because you went through so many ups and downs with the characters that their victory meant so much to you as well as them. But stories don't feel like that to me anymore. Just out of anime that are being simulcast this spring every victory is tempered with a humbling bitterness about how little was achieved and the weight that the characters are still carrying. Most notably Kimetsu no Yaiba's latest episode should have had a pretty awesome sense of victory but it just felt hollow and empty as nothing notable was achieved before the story ran headlong into further overwhelming the protagonist and making things even worse for him. And it's not a pacing problem either. It just seems to be how stories are evolving and I don't know if I enjoy that anymore. Victory feeling worthless and conflict being constant just starts to leave you asking why and when depression is your constant companion waiting for the chance to make your life miserable that question being in your entertainment is a very disheartening experience.
      Anyway, I've ranted long enough and have to get back to my own writing where I'm probably falling into the traps I'm complaining about.

      It's likely fake, but do be on the look out at E3 to see if Grookey's final evolution really is called Baboom.
