    Playing Sonic Chrono Adventure again (fangame by LakeFepard, third in the Before/After The Sequel trilogy), this game actually figured out how to make a sword compliment Sonic's regular moves by making the sword have larger attack range, able to hit harder, be able to hit without risking contact damage against enemies with spikes or any kind of contact damage that can damage Sonic even when he's spinning, and hit enemies that are normally invincible all the time or invincible in certain attack states, all but at the cost of 1) not being able to just jump on enemies while the sword is out, making Sonic vulnerable to contact damage even when jumping (providing a risk/reward dynamic compared to regular spinning), and 2) you can't spin-dash (or spin period) while the sword is out, meaning you have to put it away to have access to one of Sonic's core mobility tools. It legit works really well.

    Wait, some people actually dislike the visual style of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy? The graphics and visual direction were one of the parts of the original trilogy that aged the worst by far. (Also, I don't have any nostalgia for the PS1 games, so I have little issue saying that.)
    Well, there is one thing from the PS1 games that aged nearly as poorly - Spyro 1's "boss battles". Gnasty Gnorc is probably the most pathetic and cowardly final boss of all time, all he does is shoot projectiles and then run away like a pansy for the rest of the "fight".

    I'm not sure why the fuck I'm bothering to do Demyx's data-rematch in KH2HD, it's complete bullshit. Which is a consistent complaint I'm having with the boss fights in this series.
    Seriously, Kingdom Hearts has some of the worst action RPG design I've ever seen. I would only use it as a guide on how not to design an action RPG (and also a guide on how not to design action RPG boss fights).

    Fuck me I can't wait to be done with the PS2/PSP/3DS Kingdom Hearts games already, the textured facial expressions are creeping me the fuck out. I wish the HD collection used the fully modeled faces all the time instead of textures.

    Okay, finished Kingdom Hearts 1.5 with all secret bosses beaten and Ultima Weapon acquired. I think that's enough for me. Also, started RE:Chain of Memories and remembered that I really was never a fan of the card system, so I'm just gonna skip it and watch the actual story on youtube. And apparently 358/2 Days is just one big cinematic so I don't have to bother actually playing it, which is a relief.

    I was okay with the boost formula in Unleashed, but for me, my biggest qualm became more apparent with subsequent games: every level is basically the same thing in a different setting: same spike traps, same balloons, same springs, same grind rails, slightly different level layout. I think Sonic Lost World's gameplay was subpar at best, but I would argue it had more imagination put into it than all the boost games combined. Throughout all the years of 3D Sonic, I know there's a winning formula in there somewhere, but whether a Sonic game ever actually finds it...

    Holy shit, the Hong Kong protestors just hung the old British colonial flag in the legislative chamber. On the very anniversary of the handover. The balls on these people - it's the biggest possible "fuck you" to China they could've done.

    Crazy idea: Sonic and The Black Knight except everyone all the story characters are their Fate counterparts, Merlina inherits Fou from her grandfather, Modred is an ally (I think she and Sonic would actually get along), and the titular black knight is actually real but it's Alter Lancer!Arturia who then switches to Saber Alter mode for the second phase of the climactic battle, and both Sonic and Mordred have to team up to beat her. The credits sequence involves a DMC/Bayonetta-style interactive duel with Mordred.

    Just a reminder that basically most of the plot of Fullmetal Alchemist started because some idiot clerk listed Edward Elric's age as 31, which is why Mustang went to Resembool to recruit him. He only found out the Elric brothers' real age when he was almost at their home.

    You know what kind of take I'd like to see out of Batman one of these days? Having him being relatively friendly and personable even in the mask (more in the smooth cultured rich guy type rather than Clark's more middle-class friendly guy persona), only for him to switch to the growling and being absolutely terrifying to villains when he's actually working. Then again, that overlap with Nightwing a bit. Hmm.
