    Super old video from shortly after Colours' release that talks about the difference in platforming, speed and spectacle in Unleashed and Colours. It's interesting to watch as this is all from a pre-Generations and Forces perspective, the points still stand and IMO apply to those newer games as well. And it's from @JezMM. 
    At least watch the comparison between S-Ranks that starts at 8:15. It's rather hilarous.

    Man the Sonic at the Olympic Games 2020 remixes are very cool but so teasingly short lol My Sweet Passion and Palmtree Panic were probably the highlights for me but there's not much to them. The Supporting Me remix is pretty awesome too (though it's mostly an original melody with some backing elements from the original song).
    Also wow they really went hard on the title screen theme lol, love it.

    I do really like the lemotifs they came up with for Sonic and Robotnik in the movie, Sonic in particular.  It's a really nice, upbeat, catchy melody. I'd kinda love to hear someone do Mega Drive versions of them - Sonic's theme especially I can really imagine being a title screen theme alongside the other classic title screen themes when I imagine it re-arranged in a similar style.

    Both versions of Sonic 1 have a unique mood compared to the rest of the series. They feel lonelier, if that makes any sense. This is mostly in the 16 bit version, but even the 8 bit version has it in the second half of the game.

    Replayed Sonic Forces yesterday since I just kinda wanted to re-experience the good aspects of that game (aesthetics, music etc) in context. I expected to get annoyed at the boring level design but... man what I DO always forget is how bad it feels to play if you refuse to embrace the 100% boost-to-win boring gameplay. The acceleration/precision platforming are awful & it's like there are invisible forces fighting you anytime you try to not follow the path of least resistance. Also clipped thru floor & died twice.

    They probably weren't aware of it being a recurring gag in the series (hell I'm not 100% sure if SEGA even are aware) but I'm glad the Sonic movie added another Sonic faceplant moment to the collection

    I know Gangsta's Paradise is a really well-known song but I legit had no connection to it before the Sonic movie trailer and tbh I don't want to include it in my soundtrack playlist because now it just brings back visceral feelings of the horror show that was pre-redesign Sonic

    I dreamt they made a new Mario game with Zelda gameplay and the second "dungeon" was a huge dilapidated department store owned by Wario. They narratively retconned it to be Wario's first appearance.
    Mario was like "Who are you?" and Wario responded:
    "I'm you, but more than you'll ever be."

    I just rage quit SA2. I feel like I'm really fighting the controls here. And it was on Pyramid Cave a Sonic stage of all things. Once Sonic is up to top speed, the slightest nudge of the analogue stick launches him in another direction. The game is telling me to run on the walls to reach some bonus items, but jumping makes Sonic go in unpredictable directions. Tiny little bumps in the road that are hard to see coming make you come to dead stop too. Enemy attacks are unavoidable half the time and it feels cheap whenever I take a hit.  I've got a mod installed that remaps the light dash to a separate button from the somersault. It's great, apart from the fact that Sonic still doesn't collect the full trail of rings, and just stops randomly or goes in the wrong direction. 
    What really irks me is that I know just how satisfying SA2 can be when it all works the way it's supposed to. When the Steam version first came out, I remember blasting through Final Rush effortlessly and getting a totally unexpected A-rank. Going from rail to rail, nailing every homing attack and bounce perfectly feels great. But the problem with SA2's design that I'm finding is that the game doesn't really accept anything other than perfection. It stops being fun if you don't play it exactly the way it was planned. It's almost scripted.

    I just finished Black Mesa , now with the Xen levels. What a fucking game. It not only payed tribute to the original Half-Life but surpassed it in many aspects, it's a worthy entry in the series even if it's not technically Valve's game.
