    I'm so glad people enjoyed my Club Sonic set. Yeah, it was just me on my own - Pete helped out as my impromptu hype man, and Turbo passed me the SoS t-shirts to pass out. I worked quite a bit on the setlist and, on the whole, I think it went very well

    Each album is one half of a CD. You get given some staples when Music Adventure & Knuckles is released so you can achieve Lock-On technology.
     
    You can also snap older CDs in half and staple them to Music Adventure & Knuckles, but the experience isn't as good.

    There should be a "Replace every level theme with Knuckles' S3 theme" one. Just to troll people.

    Here's something I just thought of:
     
    Presuming a Sonic 3&K port is up next after Sonic 2, what if Taxman/Stealth do what SEGA wanted to do back in the 90s, and stitch them both together, giving us Sonic 3 & Knuckles as default without lock-on?

    Gavvie got a reaction from Red Cap in EA Shuts down SimCity Social.... less than 1 year after it launched.   
    Microtransactions are harmless, if the end user (that's us) knows how to use them properly. Give a F2P game to a child and watch the media turn into frenzied harpies.
     
    On point: EA aren't going for the dick move here with closing SimCity Social down - it must not be making them enough money to keep it open, especially as they took Zynga to task for that "no, we're not cloning you at all" game called CityVille. Bear in mind that they're also closing The Sims Social down as well, a game that was online a lot longer. The servers for their console games tend to be up for a good 4-5 years. SC Social getting shuttered can only be narrowed down to two things - Not as many active users as anticipated (this would've been gauged by Sims Social, I'm guessing), and those that do play aren't generating the cashflow needed to keep it active.
     
    I'm not defending/attacking EA here, just stating facts. Yes, they've made some serious missteps, but then name me a game developer who haven't taken a walk down Shit Street at some point or another.

    You can have too much of a good thing.
     
    I don't personally think this project is very consistent in quality.  Each disc so far has only had about 4 songs on it that have really impressed me to the point I've wanted to listen to them again.
     
    There haven't been any BAD tracks but there have been bland, uninteresting ones, or ones that just sound really amateurish.  And that's great y'know, it's good to have a project that embraces all skill levels but... doesn't mean it will necessarily make for great listening.
     
    It's great that you're so enthusiastic for it but... no the more is not always merrier.  The more is "geez fuck this album is long, I'll listen to the rest later" and never getting round to said task, or "man this disc only had a few awesome tracks... I dunno if I can be arsed to listen to the rest if I have to wade through all the amateur stuff just to hear the eargasmic tracks".  And thus the poor souls who can only be found on the later discs remain unheard.

    Not just you. Admittedly I skimmed through the album as I've not really got the time to listen to 140+ songs right now, but there wasn't a lot that made me stop and think "oh wow, that was actually really good".
     
    Of course, my opinion may change after I've had a chance to sit down and digest it fully. but on an initial impression I think the Community Album from last year was just better. It was more diverse, tighter, the way the tracks were organised was better...Taking nothing away from the guys who contributed, because there is a lot of music there. It just feels like every song that was submitted got accepted.
     
    I'll try and use the rest of this week to listen to the album properly, and if my opinion is changed I'll let you know Congrats on the launch all the same, though.

    This is just Saints Row The Third: Enter the Dominatrix, spun off into a full retail title.
     
    I'm not at all complaining, because it looks great and it will be a perfect companion to GTAV's hyper-realism, but yeah. Aside from the new blub about being the President of the US, this is the same as the expandalone title that was announced about a year ago.

    I like how Sonic Dash is called "Sonic's first endless runner game", meaning that even SEGA have forgotten that Sonic the Sketchhog existed. Well done.

    Gavvie got a reaction from Delusphere in "TV & COMPUTER IS GIVING KIDS CANCER" ...says newspaper.   
    This is complete and utter horse manure.
     
    I've no idea how watching moving images on a television/computer screen can give anybody cancer, and if evidence can be provided that corroborates that, then we should also just go ahead and ban cinemas.
     
    Hell, might as well ban radios as well, just in case the radio waves that have been used for decades give us all brain cancer...

    I'm not at all sure if you're 9 months early, or 3 months late XD

    Anyway, yeah, I'm sure people are busy and stuff, I just didn't know if anybody had noticed or was able to change it, that's all

    Not at all sure who's responsible for the refreshing headers on the top of SSMB, but...it's March. Don't you think we could perhaps take the festive ones down now?
