  1. Okay we got the WWIII scares at the start of the month and now we have the Coronavirus shit

    Who turned off Saving Private Ryan for Resident Evil?

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I'd honestly compare it to The Thing.

      The Thing itself infects through blood and replaces a person's cells, becoming that person. This leads to a lot of paranoia to whoever is the thing. Seriously watch that movie again and tell me you don't see the same thing with the coronavirus.

  2. Hi, hello, nice to see everyone again after an absence of...*checks watch* a few months

    What'd I miss?

    1. Perkilator


      Nothing, just…you can head back to 2019.

      2020’s become hell on Earth.

    2. SaturnWolf


      Well, I knew I didn't spend all that time practicing in Doom for nothing.

      Well, my body is currently in a state of suspended animation (I'm typing this out telepathically) to avert any infection. Everywhere's getting shut down by the disease while everything's getting out of stock. You're welcome to disappear for another few months if you'd like.

  3. Interview Saturday.

    We're in the endgame now.

  4. Classic Sonic in Forces feels like such an 11th hour addition. Like, he has zero significance to anything in the plot, four levels, and like...one boss? And another that's virtually just a reskin of that one?

    1. Ferno


      Even more obvious in that in Fist Bump, the lyrics only ever mention two people, the player and sonic, but never factors in classic sonic, like the singer never says "the three of us" or anything like that

      Ther probablay could ahve fixed or at least martginally improved the Avatar and Modern if they hadn't put time into Classic tbh.

      edit: They probably could have fixed or at least marginally improved the Avatar and Modern if they hadn't put time into Classic tbh.

      I guess I struck a nerve?

  5. Wow, Dimps...REALLY loved making the Chaos Emeralds just not worth the trouble of getting

  6. I will absolutely not see the Joker movie unless he has a monologue about how we do, in fact, live in a society

  7. Sonic Adventure DX (PC) is just about driving me up the wall.

    Ever since a few days ago, basically everything I do just makes the game crash.

    I made sure all the mods are up to date (mod loader included), tried running the game in windowed mode, tried running it in different resolutions, tried doing a complete, clean, re-install, tried verifying the integrity of the game files, tried running it without mods, tried disabling Steam, NVidia's, and Discord's overlays, and nothing works.

  8. Broh job hunting sucks
    I put down everything you'd think they wanna hear and I still get ghosted

    1. JosepHenry


      Wording lmao

      You have to kill yourself to get experience nowadays. They’re looking for that and degrees.

    3. Zaysho


      Job hunting is demoralizing. Keep your head up, though.

  9. Man the Time Eater fight feels so super tacked on, gameplay and storywise. The Egg Dragoon feels way more like a final battle.

    1. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      Of course. Egg Dragoon in Gens is one of my all fime favorite bosses in Sonic. Time Eater... Meh, they always experiment in extra battles without substance and effort.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I see that boss as a personification of all the bad moments in the series; from sudden gameplay changes with poor execution, to completely useless side characters who never shut up. (Even if you disable tutorials, which is basically what that is.) It's like after being rewarded with the rest of the game that brings out the Best of Sonic, we have to pay for it by dealing with all the worst aspects rolled into one.


      Frankly, it's also eerily prophetic for what happens to the franchise after this game: More bad gameplay, characters and junk. What a way to finish off a beautiful celebration of Sonic's past by giving players a glimpse into his "bright, sparkling" future. 

    3. Ferno


      was kinda nice seeing the Egg Dragoon fight in the way that Eggman probably originally intended it to. I remember reading in Unleashed's Eggman machine bios that he build it as the ultimate fighting machine against sonic or whatever but never accounted for the Werehog when building it originally, which is why it was easily torn apart by Sonic in that form. But in Gens its like Eggman technically has the upperhand that go around

  10. Why didn't Scar just kill Simba when he was mourning over Mufasa's corpse

    There were no witnesses and it's not like he had some moral objections to killing a child, he was trying to do that before he killed Mufasa anyway

    1. Diogenes


      couldn't make it look clean. mufasa fell and got trampled, looks like an accident. mauling simba himself would leave too much evidence and another "accident" would be suspicious.

      also doesn't he sic the hyenas on simba anyway

    2. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      He does tell the hyenas to kill simba. Then the hyenas lie to Scar. Scar tells the pride both the king and crown prince died. He even looks at the hyenas saying I thought you were dead when Simba returned

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Diogenes what if he Stepped on Simba’s Head/throat and choke him to death?

    4. Diogenes


      in that case the lion crime scene investigators would surely notice the lack of hoofprints or related trauma and investigate further.

      really the point isn't that there would be no possible way for scar to get away with killing him, but that he had ways of getting rid of him without (further) dirtying his hands

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Diogenes If there isn’t a lion who does the police siren. And there isn’t a ticker tape made from grass surrounding the crime scene, I’m gonna be mad.

  11. History repeats itself. Much like with Andrew Garfield, another trilogy that could've been dies at #2 because of Sony's own shortsighted decisions.

    1. Milo


      i mean, half of me absolutely understands sony being sheepish about disney wanting to shoulder the financial burden less. they just got fox (and the related marvel film rights) and had a great box office this year; and yet now they want sony to co-finance the movies (whereas under the current deal sony handles marketing/distribution while marvel studios handles production and gets 5% of the first-dollar gross). i agree with what wraith said in a previous status that they're being greedy in that context

      but the fact rothman --of fox marvel fame-- is playing the role in negotiations has the other half of me just laughing

    2. Boomer


      @Milo Plus Disney got 100% of merch sales too.

  12. RIP MCU Spider-Man

  13. Apparently a big Sonictuber has been outed as a sexual predator

      I take it it's against the rules to say who was it?

    3. SaturnWolf



      You can view the whole mess here:



    4. Zaysho


      The fuck is with YouTubers this year

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Zaysho It's not just this year.

    6. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Wow that's fucked up.

      Per the norm for YouTubers this year I guess.

    7. Zaysho


      @Balding Spider Fair, but I don't normally follow this stuff and I've just been hearing about it so often this year it's pretty surprising.

    8. Kuzu


      Not surprised, just disappointed. 

  14. That tornado is carrying all the objects that came packed in with the engine that the developers couldn't fit in elsewhere!

  15. Ooooh, SAGE is coming up soon. I wonder what SonicNEXT has in store.

  16. I'm very confused what the endgame behind the Legacy of Solaris mod is. Like, sure, it's cool what they're adding (I'm a big fan of '06's E3 huds, love 'em, love 'em, love 'em) but like...it doesn't really seem like it's really "fixing" anything? Maybe it's just the fact that I haven't played it, but it seems like the same, barely functional, frustrating game at its core, just with prettier graphics and more to do.

  17. It kills me inside that we'll never see Luke, Han and Leia reunite one last time

    Unless they filmed that exact thing before Carrie Fisher died and have been saving it for this exact moment.

    1. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      You know, Fisher filmed a lot of scenes for VII and VIII which will be used in IX. I'm gonna leave it at that.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I be perfectly willing for them to asspull making Han into a Force Ghost for no explained reason and without any warning if it meant fulfilling that desire.

    3. Solister


      Just thinking on this almost put me in tears, I don't think I'm prepared for Episode IX.

      But Idk, Sequels have went in a totally different way from what I expected, an ok movie, a bad one and now I think I'm putting much hype for Episode IX which may end up disappoint me. I don't think it will fix all the other problems VII and VIII had, despite III did this with I and II.

      But yeah, seems a very unlike scene to film Han, Leia and Luke together on Episodes VII and VIII and more unlike if Han and (Theoretically) Luke are dead.

  18. Sometimes I wonder what Sonic Boom could've been if Sega hadn't tripped and fallen flat on their face walking out the door with it

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      I’d like to imagine if SEGA didn’t force them to release it on Wii U and let them use the planned consoles, the game would’ve resembled a better product.

      Rise of Lyric failed on two fronts that messed the show up badly - one - it was meant to be a prequel explaining Boom Sonic’s origins, and how he met the rest of the group, as well as setting up lore for the series that would’ve portrayed it more than being a comedy (If the echidna and ancient hedgehog statues are any indication).

      SEGA was counter intuitive about allowing an origin game, because Sonic Team was considering a origins thing and didn’t want it dictated by a Western company, despite the fact that Boom in general was literally designed to be a radically different approach by a Western company, so what they planned shouldn’t have mattered much to Sonic Team’s.

      Really, it was the shift to Wii U that killed it though. It became a meme for being as bad as 06, and that spun off into a bad showing for the TV series and comic, which was far better. 

    2. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      @Ryannumber1gamer especially hilarious seeing as it's been 5 years and still no word on that origin story that SEGA was apparently so confident in doing that they fucked up a whole sub-franchise for it

    3. Red


      @Vertical Snoop [D.K.] I'm thinking they probably wanted to continue the Generations trend while hitting the reset button. The next game after Gens would have been the origin game before they decided to scrap it and make a new game nothing to do with Sonic's origins.

    4. DiamondX


      I wish they gave Big Red Button more liverty with Boom.  I feel like they could've made a pretty good (if not a great) game.

      @Ryannumber1gamer Apparently they even had a time limit as the game had to be out by 2014. I'm not sure when they found out about this but apparently they had to crunch it to even get it out.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer



      IIRC, there was two reasons, the Boom show, and the deal with Nintendo. SEGA wouldn't extend the deadline due to these. The unfortunate part is the project had time, and was running stupidly well on high end consoles.

      Then SEGA demanded it ported to Wii U, an overhaul of the story. A game designed for PS4 and Xbox One on an engine designed specifically for those consoles had about a few months to get it ported and downgraded. It's no surprise it ended up how it did.

    6. Wraith


      Even conceptually it was boring and uninspired. The show turned out bad too for this reason. The comic is only any good at all because of Ian. 

      That being said Big Red Button didn't deserve the treatment they recieved. Nobody deserves that.

    7. Soniman


      The show wasn't bad at all perhaps because it didn't even bother with the boring origins or lore shit that the OG game tried to hamstring together and just went the self contained cartoon approach. Was it a good thing that the games, comics and show all operated on different canons? Nope. But in hindsight it worked out for the best. It's all dead now so it doesn't really matter. I'm more interested in the amount of money that Sega wasted on this venture more than anything else 

    8. Dejimon11


      It just would of been Jak and Daxter with sonic characters

  20. Rocko's Modern Life movie was great

  21. Watch us multiplyyyyy

    Right before your eyyyes

  22. It'll always feel like walking through an abandoned town being on SSMB at this hour

  23. The Geek Critique has probably the best Sonic reviews I've seen

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      They're pretty great. I don't necessarily agree with him on every front ( Sonic Advance 2 is imo a really good game), but the analyses are so on depth and rich.

  24. Is the online for TSR still a barely functional, shambling mess

    1. Thigolf


      The bigger problem might be finding someone to play with at this point

    2. Dejimon11


      I can barely convince my friends to play with me. 

  25. Does anyone know where the rumor of Shadow and Knuckles being in Unleashed came from? Aside from like, a one off trivia question, there's no references to them in the game at all, no unused models or anything like that.

    1. Strickerx5


      It came from one of the E3 interview videos at the time. A rep was asked if they’d be in the game and he straight up said yes.

      I can find the video for you later once I’m out of work.

    2. SaturnWolf


      That would be awesome, thanks!

    3. Strickerx5


      There we go.

      Anyways, I think it's relatively safe to assume in hindsight that the rep was more focused on the game than the actual question so it's very likely that he just rattled off some character names when he really meant that just a few of them were going to be in. I'm pretty sure we would've found at least some reference of a Knuckles and or Shadow model in the game files by now if they were ever planned.

      At the most, they probably never made it off of an internal PR doc/ whiteboard honestly.

    4. SaturnWolf


      Thank you very much!

      Yeah, I imagine the rep just wasn't really paying attention or maybe got confused with Black Knight?

    5. Strickerx5


      Actually that is quite possible lol
