    I think I've said this before, but the original game wasn't some ultra skilled racer that was as hard as something like Dark Souls (a good modern cultural comparison). As Tornado said above, almost everyone who played it interpreted it as a fun, mascot based racer. Now the game definitely has a lot of depth, and there were things you could do in it which you just couldn't do in contemporary karting games, and perhaps even modern karting games too, but the vast majority of people who played it didn't know about these things. Only people who beat Oxide's ghosts had to master the game's mechanics. It's why you saw so many people playing the remake in previews who didn't powerslide through the laps. It wasn't because they 'sucked', it was because a lot of people who played the original saw it as a mascot racer and didn't even know about the powerslide mechanic. You could easily beat the Adventure mode on normal without powersliding. And hell, even I, someone who beat all of Oxide's ghosts in the original, didn't know about the illegal shortcuts, 'ultimate sacred fire' or 'saffi fire'. I didn't even think of names for the game's techniques, I just thought of it as a power slide mechanic. I really do think the game's legacy has been perverted over the years as a single minded hard as nails game, because while the Oxide ghosts were certainly like that, the rest of the game was honestly pretty easy and accessible (except Tropy and the Adventure bosses). Exactly because it was a karting game. I get the impression this legacy has been passed on because of speedruns of the tracks and the notorious Oxide ghosts. I also get the impression that a lot of people who spread this misinformation never played the game when it came out, quite frankly.

    Sonic Mania - Mirage Saloon (42% complete) Entire original part has been remixed. Now it's time to bridge into my own stuff. Things are really heating up now. The rest of this should be real simple. I'll probably be posting a sample up here shortly as well. It's definitely one of the most interesting setups I've had in a bit. I've gotta make it sound a tad more western from here on out. The wood block percussion and the harmonica really helps. I have also added an electric piano to the mix. Not sure if I still need to do some extra sound searching for it or not. I have plenty of time to do so. I've come this far and it's only been a week. I'm so happy this is going great so far. I can't wait to show you . . .

    This whole Pokemon discourse really makes it apparent that adults are extremely reluctant to move from series they may have outgrown. I'm not really into all of the gimmicky stuff the series has been doing either...but I also understand that I am not the target demographic but then I see so many other people on the internet hate this stuff. Its weird.

    I'll admit, Alcreme is kind of ridiculous but in a fun way. I'm glad they're just going balls crazy now. And Rolycoly is definitely going to become a coal train, let's ho.

    Also, I'm an absolutely huge fan of the original CTR on PS1. I played the fuck out of it as a kid. But this idea that Mario Kart 8 has less depth or whatever is complete nonsense. It's an absolutely fantastic game, brimming with content and personality. It's drifting system isn't as fleshed out as CTR, but the speed-running potential for it is still high. Especially in 200CC. It's not some dumb game aimed squarely at five year olds. In fact, I'd say that the drifting in both TSR and Mario Kart can feel smoother at times. The controls certainly feel a bit archaic going back to it, and there's not really any way you could improve them.

    Nope sorry placed first multiple times online with minimal drift. That doesn't even contradict his statement if you still had to use drifting.

    Honestly, for as BS as the system is, it might have been fine...if things weren't on a time table. Almost makes one wonder why they didn't just make them DLC packs that were paid for. Of course, because you can permanently miss out on stuff, that shit is gonna called out big time. This isn't some MMO where temporary content is a given. It's a kart racer for crying out loud.

    Saw Spider-Man Far From Home. I though it was great fun, and a pretty good end for Marvel's Phase 3. Dunno what Marvel films I'll be seeing after today, though. Guess it'll just come down to whether I like what I see from previews and such.

    I like the gigantamax being a thing you actually have to work for instead of being an easy kill mode to mow through the rest of the game like a lot of these gimmicks tend to be

    I think all argument of CTR being skill based goes out the window when RNG dictates how fucked you are for a match. I've had multiple matches where I get a good start only to be hit in succession with a lightning orb, rocket, bomb, and topped off with the bomb throwing me into a pit. The difference is CTR also doesn't have proper item balancing for anything other than 1st. Which means you can still keep getting worthless TNT crates and potions when in eighth, or near it. I once had a match where I was in a low number for a full lap and literally got nothing but TNT, which is literally worthless to me. The idea that MK8D doesn't require skill however is absolutely silly. I've played with MK8 players of all skill levels. I've seen people master 200cc, and the shortcuts involved with hitting it, and if you want to pretend to me that you managed to pull off 200cc wins without drifting once, I'm gonna call complete bullshit on that. Trying to go that fast is a completely different ballgame that changes up how shortcuts work, the timing for them, and when you should be drifting.

    What I don't like about Jedi Knight is that it's easy to go from full health and shields to almost dead in a second without me even realizing why. Also the lightsaber seems pretty useless and gets me hurt more often than not due to having to get close to enemies. I wonder if Jedi Outcast is any better with the lightsaber stuff.

    This is the part where this game is really losing me. The stuff with Home is bad enough, but even with my complaints, I can always make do with what's there. I'm already not a fan of Nintendo Switch Online and was already bothered knowing basic features like the GTS would be paywalled but now they're locking these special Gigantamax Pokémon behind this as well. The online components have probably been the most off-putting and worrying aspect of this game for me that I'm questioning what I'd even get out of this particular iteration of Pokémon at this point. They're $60 games, in addition to the extra $20 just to be able to use features I frequently used on the 3DS. NSO hasn't proven its value to me, since by most accounts the service is the same as it already was with almost no improvement. It's a shame because I actually really like the new Pokémon revealed so far (I'm actually quite fond of Alcremie) and the new characters look great but it's hard for me to remain excited about playing the actual game. EDIT: And at this point the Poké-Mon-Amie/Refresh successor is practically confirmed. I'm not convinced there was anything new that was going need to be made for older generation Pokémon so the reasoning is still nonsense as far as I'm concerned.

    I've seen the trailer like ten times by now, and I still don't see the sexualization. And each time I watch it, I want to play the game even more. Hell, one of the reasons I liked it so much is that it doesn't treat the main female characters as objects or fanservice material. They don't even look sexy to me, they look cute!

    People often say that Chemical Plant Zone depicts a nearby city in its background. And that's possible. But as a resident of Southeast Texas, I feel obliged to remind everyone that plants can be very large and can look very... "urban". Make sure you look at the background structures in these real world pictures. Those aren't cities in the distance; that's just more chemical plant. With those beautiful red-orange lights, heh.

    Can we just talk about how the animations are still bad? Didn't they use animations as an excuse for not having all Pokemon? Doesn't look like they made much of a difference to the animations. I do like the gigantamaxing, though I would still prefer if they focused on more Megas but oh well. I like Duraludon and Rolycoly (which looks an awful lot like a motobug lol), but I really don't like Alcremie and I guess Yamper is fine. Still not as excited for the games as I should be for a Switch Pokemon game.

    At least he's an actual villain. The other Deadly Six were just funny-wannabe and filler stuff for boss fights. However I did like the idea of a team of villains who care for each other, the concept was nice, execution… obviously terrible because of how one note they were. Still, sad to see them go. I still think Zavok has potential to be a decent villain, while the other Zeti had little to no potential.

    All that character development in the Sonic Adventure game only to be unraveled. It's sad that the only form of media you get to see characters like Tails and Knuckles at their greatest potential is in comics and/or fanmade projects.

    They're not going to tell a full fledged story and even if they did, they are terrible at it. So yea, just...make Tails and Knuckles playable and call it a day.

    Honestly I just liked Tails better when he was Sonic's tagalong sidekick with similar abilities plus flight. It's not what I wanted him to be forever (I enjoyed his development and role in the Adventure games) but the technological genius NPC angle they've been pushing for years doesn't do anything for me. I don't care about his IQ or inventions or snarky comebacks to Sonic's jokes, I just want to run around with him in the same levels that Sonic does. I always felt that Ian did such a good job with him, balancing his natural abilities and tactician prowess while not forgetting his capability on the front lines alongside Sonic.

    My point is they essentially already gutted the cast years ago. Shadow, Rouge, Blaze etc are long gone from the series aside from playing bit parts. Their meaningful contributions have stopped. There's no more need to discuss what they should do when it's already been done. So, what now? How many games of fumbling around exclusively with Sonic, Tails and Eggman does it take? If theres narratives are as much of a step up as you all consider them to be, surely they've found a rhythm and can at least swap Tails out for some other character.

    I'm glad mainstream critics are enjoying classics like Sonic Colors, Generations and Sonic 4 episode 1, but that doesn't do anything for me and others that find those games and their narratives unsatisfactory.

    True, that is the main goal. Although, truth be told, I've never been one for the argument of simply meeting the main goal. You might not need this stuff to ship the product, but lord knows that's a slippery train of thought that can lead to any game getting a pass. I'd rather not have corners cut just because the main goal was reached. These are different teams within ST at the end of the day so I'm really not for one team doing fine and the other doing fuck all (that's of course acting like the rest of these games are fine but hey). The truth of the matter is, it simply isn't that hard to let Sonic be the hero at the end of the day while also not shitting on the other cast in the process. This series has done that before so I fail to see why it's ok for that same bar not to be met now. It shouldn't be hard to have other cast members doing background task during levels instead of getting 80% of their forces wiped out because Sonic isn't around. Dumbing down the characters to that extent, to me, is terrible writing.

    Welp, it sucks to do it but I just resigned from that contracted freelance writing gig I landed last week. I should have done more research into them beforehand. While what they do is technically legal, I still consider it unethical and wasn't comfortable working for them. Even if I were, I sure as shit wouldn't have put it on my resume. Sucks to be back to square one again but it's for the best.

    Well this sure brings back memories. man the gameplay itself might've been uh, not that good, but damn, I still love Zero Gravity in its entirety for everything else. The art style, the story, the music, worldbuilding etc. It's so good.

    I would like to remind everyone of a post made by @Chris back in September: It seems this warning badly needs reinforcement because people are still saying stupid stuff that seems designed to just shut down and disparage the opinions of others. It's needs to stop. This is your final warning. Strikes will be handed out quickly and readily for anything that's disparaging of others for their opinions, their enthusiasm for Forces, or whatever. We've tolerated a lot of junk so far, but that stops now. To be clear, the problems don't just come from "anti-Forces" people. There have been plenty of issues coming from members with different opinions on Forces - positive, neutral, etc. Bashing people who don't like Forces isn't remotely acceptable either. No matter what your opinions are about the game, you have to act like a decent human being and not overreact over others who disagree and resort to rudeness, disparagement, attacks, demeaning and unhelpful "jokes", acting like the "peanut gallery" commenting on the low quality of discussion while not making it any better yourself, or any other behavior which obviously does more harm than good. You may think it's only slightly rude or that you were joking, but frankly, it doesn't matter. We won't tolerate it anymore. Please, just try to take a step back...it's just a video game.
