  1. *finds out that the PC i ordered can actually be upgraded to 128gbs of ram*

    heck even 64gb would be super overkill but... *"Power" by Kanye West starts playing* ...i think i'm gonna save up for that 64gb idgaf


    1. Polkadi~☆


      Minecraft, who has no hard cap on the amount of RAM it uses:

  3. Gameboy Color games are so much more forgiving to play on phone emulators vs GBA or beyond, mainly due to the fact that there's no fiddling around with how to handle the L & R buttons. Once I play anything above GBC then it's time to break out a Bluetooth controller.

      Pretty soon, they’ll combine game consoles with phones.

      Hell, they’re already on the verge of phasing out game consoles and combine them with mainstream computers.

  4. *gets excited thinking about One Piece blowing up on normie social media next month once its on Netflix just like how ATLA is currently blowing up right now since it came to Netflix not too long ago*

    2. Faseeh


      Actually One Piece has somehow always been around on my Twitter, but maybe that's just because people I follow watch it haha

      @Sonictrainer Avatar The Last Airbender

      uh, hold up - One Piece is coming to Netflix?

      @Ryannumber1gamer I thought we were talking about the live action series but apparently not:


      Coming only in the first two arcs but honestly that's for the best; if they uploaded all 900 episodes everyone would be scared off again as per the norm, lol

      Best arcs of the tv show to boot, so should leave a good impression

      Edit: Well shoot...

    8. Adamabba


      i hope it blows up. id be very interested in seeing how all the newcomers like it 

  5. Was finally charged by amazon for the PC I bought so it should be shipping soon. When it arrives I'll probably put my current harddrive in it for a few days if possible to test drive it and make sure it functions properly just in case I have to send it back, but I'm pretty excited.

  6. Thinking of buying New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe with my next paycheck tbh. Never owned any of the NSMB games due to how simplistic and samey they felt after the 1st one while still being full priced, (heck the forever-full-priced thing is why I never bought the 1st one for that matter,) but I feel like I should atleast get the one that people say felt the most fresh and interesting after the 1st, plus I've kinda been in the mood for more 2D Mario anyway after playing more of the 2D platforming sections in Odyssey lately.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      It's hard to even think about going back to the NSMBs after Mario Maker. Unless you're looking for that consistent Nintendo touch in each level without Sturgeon's law popping up.

    2. Zaysho


      If you've never played one, U is quite good. It reminded me a bit of Super Mario World and I didn't really suffer the burnout from the series since the only one I played prior was the DS one.

    3. Nix


      NSMBU is one of the best 2D Mario games and that's a hill I'm willing to die on.

    4. Thigolf


      Nix is absolutely right, NSMBU is freaking fantastic and absolutely worth your time. It's so fun.

  7. Still waiting for Knuckles to be depicted  in canon as strong enough to punch people out of super forms again. Like heck, imagine base knuckles running towards like, super shadow, fists raised, and shadow showing signs of hesitation even though he's in his super state.

    1. Diogenes


      imagine knuckles exploding into chunky salsa because he doesn't have the element of surprise this time

    2. Sean



    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Imagine Knuckles doing anything remotely cool in a game again. 

    4. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      That seems unreasonable, since it took both super-strength and a suckerpunch to do the trick against Super Sonic. 

      Super Forms shouldn't have much to fear from Knuckles standing right in front of them. I mean, Super Sonic tanks physical blows from a bunch of bosses and it only knocks him back a bit. Getting hit by Knuckles shouldn't be any different. 


      I like they way the comics handled it with Super Metal a while Back. Shadow was able to de-power him with a strong sneak attack that he never saw coming. Fits with what Knux did to Sonic back in S3. 

    5. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Knuckles punched Sonic in the Emeralds!

    6. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I stand by the headcanon of him using the M.E. to draw strengh and override the chaos emeralds (as in SA2) to beat Super Sonic. So I feel this only works if Knuckles is close to the M.E. or if both are present anywhere on their homelands where he can sense it from anywhere and its energy is strongest.

  8. Just bought my first actual tower PC on amazon and it should be arriving in like a week. Its a Dell Precision 3630 and it touts itself as a workstation PC; seems to have good enough modern specs though apparently isn't the best for gaming, but tbh I was just looking for something a few steps above my current core i3 Lenovo laptop and I think I found it, plus it seems very upgradable if I do enough homework on how to do so. My main thing was just finding something that could run stuff like Blender faster than what I currently have for whenever I start delving into 3D and I think I found something decent in that regard.

    1. Ferno


      this mf also seems to be upgradable to 32gbs of ram. I already use 16 gbs of ram on my current laptop but with 32 I'd feel powerful af, the sheer canvas sizes I could draw at, lawd

  9. I'm sorry but I still think Shaggy's voice in the new movie is the weakest voice he's ever had.

    1. Sean


      My immediate gut reaction when I first saw the Scoob trailer was "I'm sorry for being hard on the Sonic movie"

    2. Strickerx5


      I honestly thought that the movie was going to be fine with how well animated those initial trailers looked (haven't seen the actual movie yet). Or, at the very least, fare better than Sonic.

      Good thing I didn't make any bets, oof.

      And yeah, Shaggy's voice bothered me in those initial trailers too. Hollywood's hard on for replacing established VAs with well-known actors really took a toll on this one... among other things from what I've heard.

    3. Ferno


      Haven't seen scoob myself but yeah. At this point I'm almost surprised that other movies like The Rugrats Movie, Pokemon the 1st Movie, or The Simpsons Movie kept their TV show casts, but I guess being "just a cartoon" 2D movie adaptations of TV shows let Hollywood see them as less important so the questions of recasting with celebs probably never even came up in those cases. In this case its like "oh man, a big budget CGI animated movie, this one MATTERS, better get the celebs on the phone"

    4. Zaysho


      It's pretty shit they didn't even call the current cast, except for Welker (and only for Scooby), for this movie. They apparently didn't even know until the casting was already announced.

    5. Ferno


      Seems to be a trend in a variety of creative/media industries where voice actors are involved to just not keep them in the loop when they're being replaced and that sucks.

    6. Zaysho


      It really sucks here because the Scooby cast was set in stone for the past two decades, with most of them coming in after retirements or deaths of previous actors. The movie is loaded with H-B characters they could slap the celeb cast on (and did!) since most of them don't have fixed voices anyway because they're never used.

      It's really disheartening seeing how they got pushed aside, but the movie sounds like dreck anyway so maybe they dodged a bullet.

  10. Not happy that its only 30 secs but at the very least this song comes close to the energy of the Japanese theme and is even in the same key which is an admittedly minor thing but helps it to hit my ears in a similar way as a worthy replacement.

    1. Superstar Introvert CC14

      Superstar Introvert CC14

      There's also going to be a longer, full version of it released to purchase, which is always nice.

  11. Just remembering how wild 2011 was on here. Within the span of like a week(?) or so, The IPBoard forum software was updated, Sega Forums went down so we got an influx of new members, and the bloated Generations demo file exploded like a dead whale, spewing game spoilers everywhere that we couldn't resist looking into. Popcorn gifs were abundant and things were crazy af on here. ..would probably do it all again 8/10

    1. Ferno


      I only hope the hype for the next mainline game brings even half of that activity level back on here even if its just for the months leading up to release. I miss discussing mainline game releases on forums rather than twitter with character limits

  12. when the rival's theme is just as cool as the protagonist's if not cooler

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      basically every theme is fire in this show

  13. Everytime the pizza delivery covid ads come on and they go "we don't touch your pizza after its cooked" I'm like "d..did you guys touch the pizzas before or what"

    1. StaticMania


      They don't really need to specify...but they fire the people that do.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      That's like when a place imposes a super specific rule; you have to wonder if someone already did the thing that caused the rule to be made.

    3. Ferno


      just reminds me of the whole gluten thing a few years back tbh. we even had some brands proclaim that their food was gluten free even if it was ALWAYS gluten free by nature to begin with, just to get brownie points and join in the trend

      like its probably a similar thing here, maybe they never touched our pizzas before because like, that's common sense, but now they just make sure they put it in ads for the brownie points or just to put people at ease right now through emphasis on what they were already doing

    4. Celestia



      "d..did you guys touch the pizzas before or what"

      I see someone doesn't know the joy of touched pizza...smh

    5. KHCast


      Ferno, don’t you remember their old slogan: “Our pizzas are made with the finest unwashed hands and coughs”

  14. morty sounds so...competent here without a shred of lame-sounding-ness to his voice and that scares me


  15. It's gonna bother me forever that its not called Paper Mario AND the Origami King. Also I miss when they weren't really aware that they were in a paper world and it was mostly an artstyle thing outside of some of Mario's paper-based moves in the overworld.

    1. Ferno


      then again there wasn't an "and" in The Thousand Year door either so I guess I'll get used to that

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The name sounds weird, I agree.

      And yeah, the paper aesthetic really doesn't gel with me at all. It suddenly became part of the series with SS, and it's really... Eh. It only used to be the name (the Western name) of the franchise. It's like the games are built from the name up now.

    3. Ferno


      I will say though that the production values seem even higher here than even Color Splash, and the charm that the simplistic artstyle brings to the table in terms of wowing you with the number of things it can get away with putting on screen at once since everything is flat still hasn't gotten old. I just wish we would get all this in a traditional PM game instead. I want the true "Paper Mario 3"

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      The ands were stolen by Pacman to use in "And The Ghostly Adventures" as well as Knuckles for... take a guess.

    5. Diogenes



      And yeah, the paper aesthetic really doesn't gel with me at all. It suddenly became part of the series with SS, 

      it was there from the start, they've just been able to render it in more detail over time

    6. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Paper Mario and the Chamber of Secrets

      Paper Mario and the Secret Rings

  16. still mad that this was never officially remixed tbh. this would be on the level of "you say run" if it were done with instruments


    1. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      You are freaking right, my dude.

    2. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      sa3 is a gem

    3. Adamabba


      There are too many bangers from the Advance trilogy and Battle that should get remixed

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      You say that's the issue at hand with this song. The real big offense here is clearly how it played a mere fifthteen seconds in a cutscene for the entire game. There's was an old video I watch that replaced Nonagression's pinch theme with this and it was so perfect.

      While N.A. is already high my favorite final boss song in the series, this theme could make it top Unleashed's whole going from dreadful, sad music to a victorious reprise of the main theme for me.

  17. in the final pokemon episode, whenever that is, I hope they have Ash go "it sure was a crazy year"

    1. Ferno


      they gon play this when he turn 11


  18. Gonna need the Hedgehog Engine 3 now unless Sonic Team just drops the HE altogether and also hops on the UE5 train

    1. Strickerx5


      You know what, I've been giving it a lot of thought today and yeah, it might just be in ST's best interest to start looking into gaining an Unreal licence. The feature set and documentation alone makes it a worthwhile move over any internal engine. Not to mention the lack of upkeep at that point (no more 4 years of simply updating the damn thing).

      Honestly, I think the only thing the current HE2 has over Unreal is the simple fact that it was made for Sonic specifically (level streaming and what not (though that might've been removed from 2 iirc but idk)). Though, it really isn't like these aren't things Unreal can't do better.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Sonic Team would still only bother to use a tenth of either engine's power anyway

    3. Nix



      Honestly, the SSDs themselves can probably pull a lot of the weight in regards to loading, level streaming and the like.  Some people really underestimate just how quick the current ones are and how they're going to influence game design going forward.



  19. Maybe I can use this college thing to my advantage tbh. Originally I was gonna stay full time at work while doing the school thing at the same time this fall, but tbh after a couple super rough months at work, I could use this as the excuse I've been looking for to go back to part time again. Bills would once again be an issue, but I could just go back to using commissions to fill in the gaps money-wise like I was already doing before, and maybe squeeze some comic work in while also figuring patreon out before my time in school would be over so I could continue having a way to not have to go back to full time at work even after I'm done wrapping up my associates degree. Ultimate goal would be to be able to quit retail altogether one day but one step at a time I guess.

    1. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      First off, what are you going to college for and why?

      I take it college has become a bit more affordable now? Otherwise, hold off till you get the money first.

    2. Ferno


      My family wants me to go back, and my aunt's job has a program to pay for most of it, otherwise I don't really feel the need to. They probably think I'm not doing enough with my life, but to be fair I don't really share much of anything I do with them art-wise so in their eyes I'm just working retail aimlessly without any other life goals outside of that. I'll just be doing general education, associates in arts, well, wrapping it up anyway. I dropped out years ago and took a long break/ just decided not to go back before this.

    3. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      Honestly sounds like it’ll just drain you funds even more. 

      I know a college education has benefits, but it’s easy to forget that the reason it’s valued is because of the knowledge that it would bring that you couldn’t get anywhere else back in the Industrial Age.

      ...you know, before Google came around and made finding that same knowledge easy with a few words and a push of a button?

      Not saying college is worthless now, but after realizing that we’re in the Information Age and what that actually means, on top on how much more expensive it is now compared to decades ago, I’m starting to understand why some are saying “College is a Scam.”

      But don’t let that stop you from making your own decisions. Do what you think is best.

  20. still wild to me. forget the desk, we've got 'em in our pockets now

    1. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      Pockets? We can wear them as fucking watches now...

      And it doesn’t even stop there—we’re trying to turn our clothes into computers next.

    2. JezMM


      For some reason, considering there are old people around NOW who poo-poo the advances in technology, I find it really wholesome content seeing an old person from yesteryear pioneering this stuff.  I'm certain this man must be long gone, I hoped he lived long enough to see how right he was but I'm also kinda sad he can't see how right he was and then some.

    3. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      It was Arthur C. Clarke.

      And yes, he lived long enough to see it and the iPhone before dying in 2008.

  21. a theater reaction video like this from 2002 is really rare. like what did they do, bring a big camcorder into the movie theater?

    I wish stuff like this existed for movies from the 90s when I grew up; would've loved to see theater reactions to monumental animated movies like Lion King and Toy Story

  22. seeing this opening sequence on the big screen was probably the highlight of the year for me before all this covid stuff got started

    1. Thigolf


      The Sega Logo is so good

    2. FReaK


      seeing sonic 2 on the big screen in the sega logo made me cry a little.

    3. PaulyBFromDa303


      That theatric entrance tho! That orchestral "SEGA". That was a real feel-good moment right there

    4. DryLagoon


      The Sega Logo at my theater got tons of cheering. It really felt like their take on the Marvel one.

  23. Pretty much official now that I'll be attempting to go back to community college in the fall (this time completely online,) to once again try to wrap up my associate's degree to make my family happy. Wasn't gonna do so anytime soon as I was juuust about to go full force on comic and art stuff this year outside of my irl job, but my aunt's job has a program that'll pay for everything I'd need to go back so I couldn't really turn that down.

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well at least once it's done, they might stop nagging about it.

    2. Ferno


      Of course I decided to say what the heck and agree to this months ago which is why I more or less halted plans to hit the ground running on my main comic, agaiiin, but I do wanna work on lots of art in advance before the semester even begins that I can post at scheduled times at my usual social media spots so that my online presence doesn't die down like it did back in 2015, which was the 2nd time I attempted and failed to do the community college thing- this time will be the 3rd. I will say tho, if I move heaven and earth and pull through it all this time, thats it. I'm just doing 2 years and I'm done. I'm ready to go full speed with art after that like I should already have done 5-10 years back.


    They better get this composer back for Spider-Verse 2

    1. Speederino



      the movie just loops this for two hours straight


  25. I know it was discussed to death back when the encore mode DLC hype was current, but I still wish we got Amy in Mania.

    1. E-122-Psi


      I agree it's a shame (and hey, we could got Super AND Chibi Amy canonised :P), though as someone who tried to program Amy's 2D style into the previous games, I can definitely see why it didn't happen.

      If it followed Advance 1 rules where Amy uses her hammer over spinning, you'd have to specially reprogram not just her, but pretty much EVERY DAMN object she interacts with.

      I still kinda hope we might get another 2D game with Advance Amy or even some sort of backwards DLC of her for Mania like the Metal Sonic in Sonic 4 thing, but it would definitely be a more gruelling task for the developers than a standard spinning character.

    2. Ferno


      Its almost one of those things where I feel like Advance 2 or 3 Amy would've been fine to use tbh. Also while controversial, they probably could've done away with the hammer altogether for this outing since she didn't have one back then and they were going for more of a "lost Saturn game" style approach with Mania. I guess the only thing from there would be to figure out what her gimmick would be at that point but I guess maybe she could've been like a slower sonic and touted as a hard mode type character where you have to be more skilled to finish stages with her as fast as the others, etc. but thats all I've got
