  1. downloaded pokemon masters --> besieged by connection errors and endless loading loops.


    Why do games never work at launch these days?

    1. Ferno


      gotta wait for that functional game patch

      you buy the game but you gotta download the turn-the-game-on dlc

    2. Sonictrainer


      I almost forgot about it. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Considering TSR was written to be in-canon and impact the cast moving forward - Can we re-open the book on which version of Colors is the canon version now?

    Mother Wisp is another feather in the DS's cap.

    Just sayin...

    1. Strickerx5


      I hope the DS version is the one that is cannon. That one had a lot more going on.

      Though if I'm not mistaken, we don't get that final Eggman cutscene which directly leads into Generations so... eh.

    2. KHCast


      Pieces of both were canon perhaps?

    3. Dr. Christmas Mike

      Dr. Christmas Mike

      I hope the DS version is canon as well. If for nothing else than that one had all the characters enjoying the amusement park and not just Sonic and Tails.

    4. KHCast


      I mean to be honest given this is sonic team, I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t actually consider lore and consistency here so I wouldn’t think hard about it 

  3. Trying to avoid spoilers, but quick EndGame question.

    Do I need to see Capt. Marvel first? Its the only one I haven't seen yet

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      No is the simple answer

      Youtube the end credit for the movie but it's not in endgame at all.

    2. Failinhearts


      Not really.

    3. dbzfan7


      Nope. Just know she exists....she barely affects the movie and is barely in it. You're good.

    4. KHCast
    5. Ferno


      I was actually shocked by how little screentime she got. To have such a big IW cliffhanger building her up, to a whole introductory movie right before Endgame, I was sure she'd be a biiig focus in the movie, but its clear they just dropped her in at all as prep for phase 4 and beyond 

    6. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      I'm interested to hear if the rumored two cuts of the endgame are true. One where Captain Marvel in her solo was so well recieved she got more screen time and one where her movie wasnt well recieved and she was less involved

    7. Ferno


      If thats true, they must've started that after what happened with Black Panther last year

    8. Jango


      Her movie was well received, so... ? She still got little screen time. BUT. She did a VERY important thing at the very beginning. And the end.

    9. dbzfan7


      For supposed future of the MCU I was honestly surprised.

    10. Red


      Captain Marvel question (spoiler)



      So was the stinger at the end meant to be taken seriously or not. I'm very confused by it. Goose coughed up the Tesseract but what happened to it after that? I highly doubt Goose or Fury would let anyone steal it considering how important it is.


    11. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      it can be assumed that the tesseract stayed with Shield until the events of the first Avengers movie

  4. So when Sonic gets included, Smash gets delayed. When Joker comes to play, the eStore crashes. 


    Sega w/ that stealth sabotage.

    1. Strickerx5


      And Bayo basically broke 4's comp scene with how broken she was lol

  5. Not much in this world more satisfying than landing a perfectly timed Capt. Falcon Fair for a KO when your opponent knows its coming and can't do a thing about it.

  6. How does putting a fake mustache on an EggPawn fool anyone?

    Shouldn't that make it look even more like Eggman than it usually does?


    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Well this is Big and a pack of random Chao we're looking at. Amy might've been suspicious at first, especally since it and Eggman got away with causing a ruckus in the race the first time. It did at least cause them to win.


    2. Tangled Jack

      Tangled Jack

      Yeah either Sonic characters are dumb (likely), or Eggman just wants to make things more Eggman-y. Probably both.

    3. DanJ86


      That's the joke.

  7. So which one is worse.

    Having to rake and claw SEGA to get any playable character besides Sonic


    DBZ where there are a ton of fighters, but 75% of the playable ones are some form of Goku


    1. Zaysho


      At least in a DBZ game I don't have to pick the Goku.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Half of Sonic's cast are all different versions of Sonic these days

  8. Lot of high profile dumpster fires in the past few months.

    Need a touch of quality control across the board for the video game industry. Some of this trash is down right ridiculous...

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Says something that a lot of said trash is AAA-developed.

  9. Drew something for Halloween and the 10th Anny of Sonic Unleashed!


  10. First a Pumpkin Hill Marathon and now a Sandopolis Remix featuring the revival of King Boom Boo himself.

    Sega killing it this Halloween.

  11. Your weekly reminder that Archie Sonic was a full-on god.


    How did they let him get so OP? That really got out of hand lol

    1. Kuzu


      Cuz it's an American comic.

      Have you seen some of the shit in DC comics.

  12. New Racer confirmed for TSR







    ITS EGGMAN (whom looks to be on a team with 2 placeholder Egg Pawns)

  13. Kingdom Hearts is the only thing I can learn more about and somehow leave knowing less than I did going in.



    At least the Games are fun tho

  14. Dang it. Now you guys got me pumping Sonic Rush and SRA beats at 0200 in the morning.


    Now I'll never get to sleep.

    1. Ferno


      going through the 00's era games in general feeling like an awkward kid again

      i have work tomorrow and bills and i pay taxes wtf

  15. Is it honestly called Team Vector? How? Why?

  16. Oh SHi--

    The Valkyria Chronicles 4 demo went live today and stats/exp/items carry over into the full game.



    1. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Let me know how it is.

    2. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      really meaty for a demo. Best description I could give is that it plays like VC1 with all the quality of life improvements of VC2 and VC3.

      Shaping up to give VC1 a run for its money.

  17. After all the trouble Sonic and Tails went through kicking Eggman and his machines out of Planet Wisp - who though it would be a good idea to lay down a few miles of tarmac and kart around in some pollution machines for fun?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      What did you expect when Sonic's "favorite" place keeping getting invaded and messed up no matter how many times he tries to make it peacful again.

    2. Kiah


      I’m not seeing the problem here. Especially since that calls for Planet Wisp music in some capacity 😉

    3. Scott


      @Kiah has the right idea! Planet Wisp is one of my favourite level themes! I'm hoping for the killer remix of it and maybe the original track too


  18. Running my war through GOW's Muslph trails. Wondering if I'll run into any serious walls for my under-leveled Kratos toward the end...

  19. So, Egg Reverie Zone.


    What exactly was SS dash attack supposed to be used for? Does it do double damage or something? Cause all I ever saw it do was bleed me of my rings when I accidentally pushed the stupid button.

    1. Kuzu


      I think it bypasses the Heavy King's barrier to hit him and Eggman's bouncers, but the cost is way too much to be practical.

    2. NikoS


      H Y P E R  S O N I C  R E F E R E N C E

  20. Sonic themed Running Shoes from PUMA?

    want. WANT.



  21. Forces question... little bit of a spoiler too...




    There were a lot of fuzzies locked up on the Death Egg with Sonic.


    Are they all dead now?

    1. Ferno
    2. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Classic sonic rescues them off screen somewhere lol.


      Damn....sonic forces has the biggest body count than any other sonic game. 

    3. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Could have sworn that you rescue them in the SOS missions

  22. So if Odyssey make Forces look bad...


    What did Bubsy just do?

    1. JosepHenry


      Made Forces look good.

    2. SweeCrue


      And the balance of the universe is restored.

    3. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Sonic Forces: At Least It's Not Bubsy™

    4. JosepHenry


      @Indigo Rush "Bubsy is better than Forces"

    5. Penny


      Forces joins the pantheon of great Sonic games that happen to be better than bubsy, like sonic 06, sonic boom: rise of lyric, and sonic and the secret rings

    6. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Makes you realize that even if he's in a bare-minimum indie-tier platformer, Sonic's speed and spectacle has a lot going for it all the same, unlike Bubsy

    7. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Lucky's tale just came out too.

      That one fares a tiny bit better than Bubsy, but that's not saying much.

      Why are all these mascot platformers releasing so close to each other. The genre is committing suicide outside of the two headliners with already proven staying power.

    8. Penny


      well, i mean, at least A Hat in Time was amazing

    9. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      At least that came out like a month ago tho.

      If your going to ape mascot platformers, and do a poor job of it no less, why in the world would you not duck the two biggest names in the genre? Not one, but two mascot platformers pushed lo launch between Forces and Odyssey.


  23. What did Famitsu do that's got everyone so up in arms?

    Did they post Mega Spolierz in their magazine or something?

    1. Heckboy


      they gave forces a 35/40

    2. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

       Nah,  they gave Sonic Forces 35/40.


    3. Polkadi~☆


      gave forces a positive score, higher than their score for mania, despite being a japanese publication, meaning their tastes are far different to those of the west

    4. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Hashtag did not see that coming

      Eh, Forces might actually appeal a bit more to the Japan than the typical Sonic game, so good on em' I guess. I do remember them scoring Lost World pretty high though.

      If anything, its a good indication that the game will run well - so thats nice.

    5. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy

      They gave Forces a 35/40. Chaos and flames ensued.

    6. Sean


      "Japs" is a pretty offensive word, I recommend not using it.

    7. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz


      Is it? I considered it just shorthand...

      I'll do keep that in mind.

    8. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      While Mania got a lower score.

      Apparently it's the same guys that gave Nintendogs a higher score than Odyessy

      Needless to say, I guess they're not very reliable.

    9. Sean


      Famitsu scores don't have any weight to them because they almost never give bad scores, and the scores tend to be pretty homogeneous across the four people reviewing the game in question.

    10. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy

      Not necessarily.

      Reminder that people in Japan does not have nearly the reverence for Classic Sonic as we westerners do. They like Adventure-style stories and aestetics. They like games where you can get past the levels quickly and easily since most Japanese people work insane hours. They didn't really go for Classic Sonic back in the day and I'm actually surprised Mania got as high scores as it did.

      Famitsu scores have little weight because they give good scores to almost everybody, not because they rated Sonic Mania lower than Forces. Congratulations Forces. You're better than the worst games in the history of gaming. That's not exactly resounding praise though.

    11. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

       As is the case with most reviewer sites, @Dejimon22, wouldn't it be fair to guess that there's nothing dictating that they are all supposedly  the same reviewer?

    12. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz


      Nintendogs was part of that Wii casual rush. It was VERY effective for what is was aiming to do. Saying that game didn't deserve a high score is like knocking WiiSports. From a gamer perspective, its bare-bones garbage. From a consumer perspective, it was 100% what the doctor ordered at the time.

      I have no problem with games that accomplish their mission that well recieving high review scores. You gotta grade games for what they are intended for. It be like grading a realistic flight simulator down because there arn't enough explosions lol

    13. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy

      @Sega DogTagz I suppose this could be the basis of an interesting debate.

      Do you take the Ebertian approach, where you judge a game on how well it accomplishes what it tries to accomplish? Do you take the objective approach, where you hold a game to a rigid set of pre-determined standards? Do you take the the subjective approach, where you make no effort to hide any of your biases about gaming and say what you really think, unfiltered, at the expense of a well-rounded, balanced reviews? Do you take the character approach, where you play a character and judge a game based off of that character's tastes and desires? Should you approach a review from the perspective of a cynic, an optimist, a neutral person, a disinterested person, or a skeptic? Is it fair to mark a game down for being too easy or too hard for you personally, even if that is not the case for others and you know it?

      Honestly, I think there's room for all of these in terms of making reviews worthwhile in giving an overall perspective of games.

    14. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      I think its all of the above really. You need a healthy balance of each mindset to really build a fair and balanced opinion.

      You should never ignore what a game was designed to do, but at the same time you have to assess the accessibility and genre standards.

      But yeah, I agree with everything you just said. ^^

  24. Yay, Halloween themed Fanart time!



  25. So, those of you knee deep in forces spoilers






    The remixed white jungle and supporting me for episode Shadow. Did they dare shake things up with some Live and Learn anywhere?

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      The White Jungle remix doesn't even appear in the game. It's going to arrive in the DLC, I imagine.


    2. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      eh, something to look forward to in the DLC then. ^^
