  1. 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.

  2. 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.

      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. SupahBerry


      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.

  3. 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.

      @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

  5. Rocko's Modern Life movie was great

  6. Watch us multiplyyyyy

    Right before your eyyyes

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

      It's Sunday.

  8. 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.

  9. 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. 

  10. 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

  11. So, this is the fabled Tilted Towers.

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Welcome to Tilted Towers. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Memphis, Tennessee, and I’m part lizard. Nice to— よろしくお願いします, as they say in Nippon.

    2. Strickerx5


      God I love that video. XD

      Made a huge mistake of having it on in the background for my first watch at work though. Could barely keep my laughter in during lines like that.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      Honestly, by having it in the background, you miss out. I had completely snapped several times in the video.

      Even better is that Rouge’s one throwaway line about Fortnite turned the entire dub into being about gamers, with the sub-plot of everyone trying to enter a relationship with Shadow.

  12. The new AVGN episode having Gilbert Gottfried really puts into perspective how much the show has grown since it was just James in his apartment yelling at poorly made NES games

  13. No time, long see

    1. TheOcelot


      gonna go on, how long is this 

  14. SSMB!

      Got to beat noobmaster first

      Tails, Noobmaster called me a dickhead again!

    8. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      That's it I keep my promises.  Noobmaster going down.

      Hold my beer. 


      On second thought let me take my drink on the road


  15. I know it's just a time thing that makes so few people be online at this hour, but gosh it feels like SSMB fell victim to the Snap.

      I know what you mean, and as a night shifter this is when I'm on when I have days off.

  16. Two years ago today, the Emoji Movie debuted in theaters. It featured a 15 minute dance sequence and no less than 8 poop jokes. God has yet to forgive us

    1. PublicEnemy1


      Let's hope that's the ONLY movie it spawns. We don't want this movie to breed.

    2. Milo


      "God has yet to forgive us"


      he did

  17. It's a dead horse but it absolutely boggles my mind that Sega looked at Sonic Genesis and said "Yes, this is acceptable for release."

    It plays like a middle school kid tried to make a Sonic game in a weekend

  18. I will always remember how wild the crowd went when Thor joined the battle of Wakanda and shouted "BRING ME THANOS!"

  19. This is a pretty cold place for a base

  20. One day soon, we'll see the headline:

    "Department of Justice approves Disney's purchase of United States Government"

    1. Speederino


      At the moment I would actually be 100% okay with this.

    2. PublicEnemy1


      I for one welcome our Mouse Overlords.

    3. Shiroi


      What did they buy this time?

  21. Does anyone know when SAGE starts this year?

  22. One thing I like to do is make video game hoaxes. I'd like to share one or two here for April Fools day, but I'm not sure if that would break the rules (I would, of course, make it abundantly clear that it's an April Fools joke and keep it to a status update)

  23. New display name, same me, only one I feel a bit more cozy in.

  24. Ahahahaha, oh man, they really thought Sonic Boom was gonna set the world on fire, didn't they

    1. SupahBerry


      Well in a way, it did.


      And they expect to make it happen again with the movie.

    2. Blueknight V2.0

      Blueknight V2.0

      Sonic Boom TV is getting a film?  Or is it something else called Sonic Boom?

    3. SupahBerry


      I mean the live action Sonic, nothing about Boom. I'm calling attention to how both intended/are intending are setting the world on fire. 

    4. Blueknight V2.0

      Blueknight V2.0

      Oh okay. I wasn't sure what was being implied there. XD.

    5. Zaysho


      I wouldn't say that.

      They had to do damage control the second they announced it to say Boom wasn't replacing regular Sonic.

    6. Dejimon11


      I'm still in the opinion if that had done as well as SEGA hoped it would of been the main sonic we would of gotten now. Them saying "it's a spinoff" was just them safeguarding everything. 

    7. Zaysho


      Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if Sega of America were thinking of replacing mainline Sonic until the Japanese branch/Sonic Team finally got to see it.

  25. "You know, I answer to Saturn a lot and that's a lot shorter and more conceise than my current display name, so I guess I'll change it to th-oh it's in use by another user. Well damn it."

    1. Perkilator


      Which name were you gonna take?

    2. SaturnWolf


      I was hoping to switch to just plain jane Saturn but somebody already sniped that.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      What about SegaSaturn?

    4. SaturnWolf


      That's a good one. I like that.
