  1. I think it's about time I look into some cheaper Wacom Cintiq alternatives from lesser known brands in the coming months once I have some cash saved up, just so I can get a feel for that kind of set up for when I can finally get a cintiq of my own.

    Just saw this review for one actually which has me intrigued, but I wanna look around a bit first at other brands to see what else is out there.

      also while i'm at it this just happened to me just now:

      *realizes there's actually an official microsoft android app that'd allow me to remotely connect my 9 inch s-pen enabled samsung tablet to my laptop and technically use clip studio paint from anywhere in my house and finally get a taste of directly-on-screen drawing with the program*

      *tries to get it running but microsoft says it's only available for windows 10 professional and up, and I only have home edition*


  2. who here has actually unlocked Amy in Sonic Advance 2. who is the chosen one who will lead us

      I had to look up SS 6 and 7 XD. This was a while back though I've memorized it

    2. Soniman

    3. Celestia


      I downloaded a save file in which she's already unlocked

      Did it on my GBA cart years ago. Couldn't be bothered when I replayed it on emulator though

    7. Sean


      I like how Pauly did it too yet he's lumped in with the rest of the sinners

    8. Ferno


      he had to look it up and gained forbidden knowledge

    9. PaulyBFromDa303


      It was unfortunate that my desktop immediately melted after obtaining such knowledge. That's how bad it was XD

      I unlocked her and then got all of the Chaos Emeralds with her as well.

      Then unlocked everything all over again at least 5 times since the game has come out.

      ...I REALLY like Sonic Advance 2.

      I did....I had to sell my soul in the process too. So many wasted hours on that game. I remember watching Naruto on Toonami too when I was doing it. Specifically, Naruto vs. Negi...

      I had to look up all the SP ring locations, but I too have done it. Amy is basically an inferior Sonic in this game anyway.

    14. JezMM


      I had the official prima strategy guide and I couldn't even get all the emeralds with Cream or Tails. ;_;

      I've never gotten all emeralds on any of the Advance games actually.

    15. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      People often complain how hard it is to get them all in Advance 2 because of having to do it multiple times.

      Most of these people have never tried 100%ing Advance 3.

      As someone who did it, I can say that I'd rather do Advance 1 and 2 a dozen times than EVER 100% Advance 3 again.

    16. Sean


      I think any of the Advance games can burn as far as getting emeralds go.

      (and the third game can burn for being total horseshit)

    17. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Agreed. But hey, it least it has a kickass soundtrack.

  3. infinte_new_logo__high_resolution__by_sm

    infinite's logo is really clever but funny to me at the same time, because while it's supposed to be his eyes + the infinite symbol, it also reminds me of when people draw intentionally bad sonics and sometimes give him eyes that look like a sideways 8

      Is it wrong that I first read that sign as

  5. I kind of wish glasses-free 3D screens caught on outside the 3DS tbh. For example PC monitors, with compatible software to take advantage of it. From my short time using Colors 3D on the 3DS in the past, one feature I liked was actually seeing the different drawing layers in 3D, which ensured that I was never drawing on the wrong layer by accident.

  6. waking up in the morning like:



    *botw soundtrack minor spoiler*


  7. As a kid/ early teen who grew up with the Advance games, it always kinda threw me off when Knuckles didnt have a punch button in the classics and even now in Mania. I kinda miss all the "B button attack moves" the characters had in advance actually, but I understand that it goes against the simple single-button philosophy of the classics.

    ...kinda weird how three different buttons are mapped to the same function in the classics and nothing else but whatever

    1. Shiguy


      Well when you get down to it, It's mostly just stop n go motions that for the most part, are stituational and unneeded aside from speedrunning quirks, Cheese, and probably some other stuff I'm missing. B button moves in the adv series were kinda trival at best.

    2. Sean


      The thing is I don't recall ever really using the B-button moves all that often in the Advance games (except Cream's because... well you know). Since you're usually on the move, your first instinct is to either jump on an enemy or duck into a roll.

    3. Ferno


      I understand the reasons that B button moves didn't make much sense for serious gameplay, but they just kinda, looked cool, plus they were fun to screw around with when you just screwed around in the stages, lol.

      I guess in a way the R button trick moves did a better job of meshing with the gameplay style, some of them could also work as attacks as well.

  8. I keep wondering what Yuji Naka thinks about Mania but I can't find any news or anything noteworthy.

      He wants it to be destroyed for using his physics without his permission

      After hearing how he felt when the NiGHTS engine was used on X-Treme, I wouln't put it past him

    3. Ferno


      Wasn't Mania and the mobile classic ports made on a custom engine though

      Figured the joke would fall flat on technicality

  9. Veeeeery late, but I started watching Daredevil on Netflix.

  10. I ordered some pizza hut. Time to see if it's as good as I remember or if it really is crap now.

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      Pizza Hut is the goat

      BBQ sauce pizza, some chicken on top, cheddar crust = :thumbsup_tone1:

    2. Ferno


      Got me some stuffed crust because that's what I miss most from them, still patiently waiting on it. It's weird how they seem to be the only ones that offer stuffed crust tbh.

      N y'all know who was once Pizza Hut's Senior Marketing Director? 


      My name is Reggie, I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' pizza!

    6. Ferno


      no wonder pizza hut was on fire back in the day

      Eating it now, still good, and actually less greasy than it was a few years ago which is a plus. I'm pleased tbh.

  11. *drinks red bull* time to make things happen. *does nothing but F5's for hours, but extreeemely*

    ...you'd think i'd get things done on the weekends since nothing happens online during it

  12. The funny thing about Mania, is that everyone, casuals included, have now been given a modern day refresher course on how Sonic's physics and level designs work. They either know now, or they remember. I feel like Colors and Gens got decent reviews for their 2D gameplay because most people probably haven't played the classics in years and didn't have them to compare the newer games to, so to them automated 2D without many gimmicks = classic sonic again for all they knew. But now everyone's paying attention, and in the future Sonic Team's really gonna have to be more careful in games after Forces to replicate the Classic gameplay more faithfully if they do it again. If the Green Hill footage from Forces is anything to go by, Iizuka and co are really gonna get burned this holiday when the reviews come in since reviewers will have Mania right there to compare Forces to.

    1. FReaK


      this. from what I've seen of forces, I'd expect them to not get a higher metascore than 60-70%. odds are high that I'm wrong though.

    2. Strickerx5


      um, but what if you don't like that style to begin wit-*ferno body slams me through the floor*

  13. it'll be funny if Sonic Team continues down their nostalgia path for another 15 years or so, because if they ever try to make an actual generations 2, they'll be forced to look back on the lack of completely original games/ scenarios, and stages since 2011, and realize just how slim the pickings are the 2nd time around compared to the first.

  14. Saw a news article saying that Mania's the first good Sonic game ever made. lol

    1. Ferno
    2. Maxtiis


      These guys need to work on their click-bait game. You know you suck when you have to rip off IGN to get people to read your review.

    3. Depression Kong

      Depression Kong

      Sucks, too, because the review itself's actually pretty well-written.

  15. I'll admit that Mania is proof that the current Sega president was serious that they were gonna focus on quality from now on, (and look to the past for inspiration, etc.) they even swallowed their pride and went out of their way to go for the best people possible to make the game. It's just that Forces currently has me scratching my head and wondering if that game started development and was well on it's way before Sega started moving in their new direction.. In that case maybe the 3D game after Forces would reflect more drastic positive changes we've been wanting...? ...this series continues to keep dragging me on with it over the years out of sheer curiosity like DBZ cliffhangers rather than just letting me leave...

      Every sonic game seems like a cliffhanger nowadays. We'll never satisfied until we see sonic with consistently good quality games.


    2. Ferno


      Its like a repetitive tv show at this point, once we finally get that 3D game that gets it right and gets solid 8s 9s and maybe even a 10 across the board, it'll be the last episode and the show will end.

      we're all pretty much Ash Ketchum at this rate.

      Hmm... Sonic team's last game...

      High quality...

      Good review scores...

      Sonic ends on a high note...

      Sega finally focuses on other projects...

      Employees feel unchained, more room for creativity, sounds like the perfect way for it to end.


    4. Dejimon11


      Man this site sure is gonna be something when Forces comes out.

      I'm mean, how would you feel if you were part if the dev team of a series you were once passionate about constantly getting hate and being the butt of every joke in the gaming community?

      I don't mean to sound depressing but...
