  1. Yeah yeah, kinda why I threw it in quotations. Using the term lightly.
  2. HEY I appreciate this thread. Seriously. I was planning on getting the Switch version, even though I have an Xbox One. Reason I mention this, I'm a perfectionist. Every game I play has to be in the best console quality I can have it in before I feel good about playing it. A curse, yeah, but at least my fridge wasn't oozing with gloats earlier. Anyways, I really know nothing much at all about this, just heard that the Switch version may no be as "pretty" as pretty much the PlayStation and Xbox versions, BUT if it's just for the TV, I guess that's okay. I rarely ever hook my Switch up to the TV. Not that I wasn't planning on doing it eventually for kicks though. Sure hope that it can look as good as the other versions eventually. I've truly never enjoyed playing the lesser-in-quality versions of games unless there's an actual difference like between the Wii and 360 versions of Unleashed.
  3. I've always thought Sonic Unleashed had the best story. I feel like it had the best mix of serious and light-hearted comedy. I dunno, I can't word it too good, but I feel like the story writing was pretty spot on in that game. The fact that it's arguably Jason's best work as Sonic makes it even better too.
  4. To be completely honest, I'm starting to think that Generations was a soft reboot of the series. A new starting point, if you will.
  5. Hey all, So, here's my story. I have this Xbox account from when I was a kid. Meaning, all the information on it for the security questions and whatnot are severely outdated. Process goes as so: I have the Email for the account, thank goodness, that's about the only thing... When it asks me for my password, here's where the fun begins. I thought I knew it, but my Xbox password has changed so many times, it's hard to remember just which it is. Simple fix, right? Just click on "Forgot my Password", that'll fix it all. Wrong. So this takes me into the ugly tailspin I've been stuck in for quite some time. It'll ask my to verify my Recovery Email, which I somewhat remember, but I can't seem to sign into it. Yes, I have tried recovering it myself. Then, it asks me if I want a text or phone call to a phone number I haven't had access to for years. I had my number switched. But of course, there's always the ole reliable account recovery form that asks me all this useless info like what my name was and where I live, which no matter how accurate I try and remember it all to be, still seems to be no good. ---------------------------------------- Here's the thing about it, wouldn't be such a big mess had this Xbox account not contained all my biggest gaming achievements, not to mention what kind of crazy records I've pulled in Sonic. (Think I once had 26th place world-wide for Windy Valley in Sonic Adventure) I mean, of course I could just throw it all away and just go from here on with a new account. Thankfully, this is really only an issue for my Xbox One which I never game on anymore, I still have this account signed up on my Xbox 360, which is where the goods lie. But I still want to have it for Forces if I decide not to get it for the Switch, then there's Gears 5 and Halo 6. Literally the only 3 games I plan on playing in the next several years for the console. Again, I still have it signed on for the 360, which is where the Sonic games I mostly play lie. But of course, I want to have this account on my One for when those newer games come out. I know that moving on from this is still an option and just making a new Xbox account, but I don't wanna leave my hard work in the past. Not to mention I'd still like to have the password for the apps and if something ever happened to my 360. Suggestions? P.S. Xbox Customer Support is complete and utter garbage by the way.
  6. Could someone please help me find a place online where I can watch Dragon Ball Super English Dubbed without such a hassle? Or at least, the least hassle.

  7. To be honest, I kind of seen the whole 2DS upgrade coming from a mile away. I don't think a lot of people care much about the 3D, and at this point that's the extra bit that you're paying for now. You have a very nice handheld console; will that be with or without 3D? Had I not traded in my Wii U and New 3DS XL, I definitely would have upgraded to this. Of course, I would have had to check out the specs and compare them to what I had already. Can anyone compare the New 3DS XL and the 2DS XL? I have to disagree, at least with the part about the Switch not being a good handheld. It is a little short on games right now, but surely it's subject to change in the future. As far as I'm concerned, the Switch is the handheld console I've been looking for. Honestly, I play it more in handheld mode than I do anything else. You're seriously the first I've seen say something negative about the Switch. Then again, I really don't do a lot of digging for Switch reviews.
  8. I miss out on a lot not reading the comics, what a regret. Oh, and I found this article where some dude done some Death Battle level research on Sonic's comic speed. (link)
  9. I would owe you not 1 but 2 cookies if you can show me just where he done that?
  10. You're suggesting that, in a way, Forces could be a "soft" reboot of the series? At least, to push it forward into a new direction? By the way, I get a kick out of people swearing up and down that Forces is a direct sequel to Chronicles. Like... what? lol I'll get this shameful little secret out of the way real quick, I kinda had a little hope that the 3rd character was Boom Sonic. But...am I the only one who read about this hint that there's something planned for the 3 Sonics in the 30th Anniversary?
  11. Something in the back of my mind has been giving me the idea that Sonic Mania is where Classic Sonic and Tails traveled back to after Generations ended. Now this would cause the Classic Sonic "timeline" (1991-1998) to be altered technically rewritten from there on out. Anybody else get those vibes?
  12. I hope I'm not just jumping in as a random voice; but I think one of the only fair reasons a reboot for the main series would be acceptable would be to actually establish a relating story. Right now, unless you kind of look into it, it's a little difficult to see what games are canon and what aren't. It's almost easy to say console vs portable, but there's certain ones that stand out. Maybe another reason would be to kind of "settle down" a core gameplay for the series, like what I feel Forces may be trying to hint at. Then again, as some have mentioned, it would be a little difficult to rewrite stories for some of the characters. However, if the story for said character as good, keep it. You didn't know '06 was supposed to be a reboot? Not that it's reliable, but I seen where it said reboot on Wikipedia.
  13. I'm really not that good at arguing/debating, but I'm at least glad that I can come here everyday to talk about Sonic and get it out of my system so my wife doesn't have to hear about it, lol.

    1. Kiah


      Lol. I don't like debating or arguing hence me not doing it. I actually have irl friends and family to talk Sonic with but I like doing it here at the SSMB too assuming it's nothing along the lines of headache-inducing. 

    2. nintega137


      I can't argue or debate at all. So join the club. Too many traumatic memories come up. I don't really debate anything with anybody lol.

    3. FantasticMrRobb


      I wish I had people offline to talk about Sonic with. My best friend used to be into Sonic a few years ago, but he quit pretty recently. I learned to live with it, lol.

  14. To be honest, since SEGA and Sonic Team just have to make the movie live action CGI or whatever the correct terminology is for it, I'm glad we've seen what they could do with their commercials already. Because the 3 that you just linked look pretty damn nice. I was a little worried about it at first, but seeing how nice the Progressive and Sonic Boom commercials look, long as they're still in this direction, I think it'll be just fine. Ultimate irony if one of the humans' name is Chris. It would be nothing short of poking fun at the community, lol.
  15. Really though. I wonder why exactly SEGA is so... I'm not sure how to put it, "scared" I suppose, of using Chao in Sonic anymore. Could it be that it's because they're being so overcautious they want to make sure the game will be a success before including them? Just because there's a lot of demand and all.
  16. I honestly kind of figured that from the beginning, not to sound cocky or anything. I hope they don't overuse the theme though. Actually, I don't really care, even if they do I'm sure I'll still enjoy the story. I'm getting the feeling more and more about Crush 40 returning to the Sonic series. But I'm excited to hear that we'll getting rock and some of that snazzy orchestra we've been having lately. I don't mind the orchestra, but I like my Crush 40/Rock in Sonic games too.
  17. Of course, it's unintentional for it to come off that way. In no way am I trying to say Sonic could whoop anybody just because of his speed. I honestly do believe Sonic has some massive hidden potential, but that's really about it. I have the idea that Sonic is a whole heck of a lot faster and way smarter than he leads on to be, he just never needs to be, I suppose, unless there's a "real" threat involved. Which usually at that point, he'll go Super Sonic. Anyways... Just going by facts, it's debatable, I would think. I mean, there's characters I think could take Sonic with a good fight, but I've never assumed Sonic to be invincible. Now Super Sonic would be a different story, but that's for another day. I've always been hearing people say Sonic can only go at super and even hyper sonic speed. But I mean, hasn't he gone light speed many times before? What about his light speed shoes? Or his light speed attack? Or the comment he made in Colors about light speed being no problem? Sure, Sonic's cocky, but I don't think he would bite off more than he could chew. Also, I do think about Colors where Sonic was running from the black hole explosion. I mean, I only assume it was a black hole because Sonic didn't just blaze away from it. We've seen Sonic outrun explosions many times, why would this be any different had it been an explosion? That, and it looked like a black hole. Also would be a good reason why Sonic wouldn't get away from it in time, maybe he didn't expect to have to go so fast so quickly, I dunno.
  18. No, it is a valid argument because I have yet to be proven otherwise. I know it's kind of a cheap shot, but I'm not wrong here whether you like it or not. Sonic hasn't shown he can run a million times light speed because he's never needed to, and I'm very well convinced of that. Just because I have a point, is no reason to go off making no sense.
  19. I think the E3 trailer is gonna give us a huge wave of info. I could see some story elements arising from it, along with more gameplay for both Sonics, and then the mystery character revealed.
  20. Hate to jump off topic but... Does anyone else think Sonic Mania is a reboot of the original Sonic timeline, due to Sonic returning to his now "altered" timeline thanks to Generations? Or... ya know, something along those lines.
  21. I don't think it'll be that bad, Head of Sonic Team said it's looking good. I mean, that's not what assures me, but that if Sonic Team drops the ball again with something big as Sonic's first movie movie, it may be a little harder to recover financially this time than it was with the Boom games.
  22. Wonder how the community would act if there was a Sonic game to be released that was Sonic X without Chris. Of course, it would be cell shaded to preserve the look of the anime.

      That depends. Do the characters retain their horrible flanderized Sonic X personalities? Because even the absence of Chris can't make up for that, IMHO.

    2. FantasticMrRobb


      Oh come now, Sonic X was pretty great! If you take out the #1 complaint being Chris, then you have a whole lot more to work with.

    3. PC the Hedgehog

      It'd be an improvement, sure, but there are lots of other problems with Sonic X that would need to be addressed.

      Sonic X has a pretty bad reputation and it's not all Chris' fault. I really don't like how they handled the characters either.

    5. FantasticMrRobb


      What was wrong with the characters?

      They took aspects of their personalities and exaggerated them to ridiculous degrees. Sonic went from laid back cool dude to lazy slacker who didn't do anything until the end of many episodes. Knuckles went from being goodhearted but gullible to being dumb as a rock, Amy went from a goodnatured girl with a crush on Sonic to a maniacal stalker who would smack the crap out of anyone who got in her way. And don't get me started on how they took Shadow from being a powerful anti-hero to being an insane force of nature who could wipe out entire space fleets with one swipe of his hand. The worst part is, a lot of those exaggerated character traits made their way into the actual games later on.

      Don't get me wrong; I did still enjoy aspects of the show, but it had a LOT of faults.

    7. Ryannumber1gamer


      To be fair with Knuckles, he didn't act that much like an idiot. In fact, Knuckles a lot of the time was the one demanding they think through situations, stop falling into Eggman's stupid tricks, and come up with plans. Usually, everyone else would shrug off his concerns and gloat him into doing things..

  23. I enjoyed '06, but of course it took a little time to get good enough at knowing the controls well enough to S Rank everything with Sonic.
