  1. The art style is exactly what I expected. Reminds me of Jet Set Radio now that it's in 3D (and also takes place in Shibuya I think).
  2. Colors is just one of those games that doesn't boast to be more than what it really is, that's why I appreciate it far more than Generations. I always thought Colors was just good, nothing amazing, but a short, good time. Even most of the wisps were actually fun to use despite how often they pop up, as it keeps plain Sonic with his current style from getting very stale very fast. But after I beat it and even got Super Sonic, not much left to do. No real reason to go back to it aside from appreciating the level aesthetics, which are still in their own, pretty great. In fact, I say it has the best classic esque 3D aesthetic of Sonic's world since Heroes.
  3. I always pictured KH2 if going 3D, or Tales of series if 2D. It's fast paced and addicting enough and you can open the menu at anytime in battle for various options Then again, it's made by Namco, so it probably won't get localized lol I don't even mind another shot at turn based either. I did like some elements of Chronicles, just a shame it falls apart on many of the most basic departments. Since we talking Square though, The World Ends With You is another great but niche action rpg. Various movement options depending on the style of attack and pins you have equipped.
  4. Doesn't seem like it. I experimented, even played with level select.
  5. Yup, slapped the cartridge out of frustration when I was a kid, might have been in some badly designed "diagonal jump" section. After messing around, I found you can just slightly lift it up out the Genesis and pit it back in. As for Sonic 2, iirc, it only remembers your chaos emeralds as long as the game is not completely turned off. Resets should be okay though,
  6. Zero Tolerance "Oh no, our weapons are useless!" Been a while since I've drawn and finished a Sonic piece. I dont draw Chaos often, but wanted to experiment more with watercolor and water effects. I figure Chaos would be perfect (no pun intended). Thinking now, it's even funnier considering what Sega originally made Chaos for.
  7. Sonic Mania has too many "blink and you miss it" special stage rings and you can't get back to many. Don't remember it happening so much in previous classic games (it happens alot in general now), but I hate having to replay an entire level just to get to that one ring. It's done quite often in Mania, and even recent Kirby games. A design idea I can live without. Sonic 3 has that Hyrdo City loop before you first run on top of the water, the glitch that makes Sonic stop completely occurs too often. Also, the legal crap surrounding this game recently preventing rereleases. Some levels drag like Sandopolis and Marble Garden. SA1, Big the Cat, more the gameplay than character. Super Sonic was never officially made for levels. Chao races suck in this version, no control over who I cheer for. Sonic Advance 1 has obnoxious enemy placement in the later levels. Dimps never seemed to learn a single lesson from it. Sonic Rush Adventure has some obnoxious forced vehicles, anything other the water bike is not fun.
  8. These are from some of the titles I like the least. Sonic Unleashed has incredible environments up to this day. Sonic Generations contains the best boost gameplay. Secret Rings has an amazing soundtrack. Black Knight has a vast improvements in Jason Griffith's performance. Sonic Lost World remembered small animals.
  9. Just saw this earlier, wasn't looking for this topic but hey. Very excited for this anime. The fact that it's a thing may open new possibilities for the series later.
  10. That was a fun listen, once I heard the explosions I quickly turned to the screen thinking something was happening on screen lol It was great hearing Ryan again, I like him sounding older here. Surprised to see David Humphrey as Knuckles this time, but he does a decent job as well. Emi's Tails is not bad either, I rather like it. Not much to say on Pollock since Eggman usually kills it. Also Knuckles just trying to do his job again.
  11. As odd and silly as this is, I'm somewhat chill with this scenario.
  12. Nice, I totally forgot about this site. I never made anything sprite related, but I remember enjoying the hell out of the custom Sonic Battle sprites, especially Super Knuckles.
  13. Knuckles being forever tied to the Master Emerald will always be his thing. I do like how he's written in IDW at the moment, as far as taking his duty seriously. As said before, there has to be a good balance with his character's usefulness to the plot and himself. Just throwing Knuckles in for the sake of it despite how iconic he is, does nothing for his character unless he has to gauge threat levels and risk leaving it from time to time when Sonic and friends really him. On the flipside, just keeping him on the island forever or sometimes showing up will just be even more inconsistent, as how he was treated the last decade or so was just like any other character, inconsistent. If anything, regarding Knuckles at all, Sega wrote themselves into a corner, and judging by their recent writing talent who don't consist of Flynn, I don't see that changing anytime soon.
  14. I'll be that guy and say I don't think it should have been blown to the proportions that it has, much like the tragic events that took place before and after George Floyd. I cannot defend Tristian all the way, as I do not know him personally nor was I aware of previous issues people have had with him in the community. But I will say how he ended up handling the situation was very poor and childish. But are many of the people jumping down his throat any better? While he definitely could have made a better comparison or at the very least, worded better, I do not think it's necessarily "wrong" to draw some parallels from fiction as art imitates life to various degrees. And we all have different forms of art that speak to us, no matter how silly or irrelevant it may seem to another. I've made comparisons to fictions as well (Sonic/DBZ/Tales of Symphonia/etc) and many of these contain stories of corruption, greed, racism and adversity at its most basic levels. It is very easy to forget these things when you are caught up in heightened emotions, and that's what happened. And it was on Twitter no less, so that wasn't surprising at all unfortunately, which I may add, I am personally sorry for having spent an entire day on that site, not good for your sanity. But either way, agree, disagree, that's all it's gotta be. Not another cancel fest or acting like Tristian himself committed murders. Many people are angry, myself included by what's happening in the US. I'm seeing so many lies, framing, misinformation, destruction, and general hateful ignorance everywhere in regards to these events and it is painful to even witness. But tearing other people down and apart because "we need somebody to hurt right now cause we mad" isn't beneficial either. That mob mentality is exactly what's wrong with all of us. I will miss the site, but I am glad some of the staff have archived their works. Some people just need to chill the fuck out, honestly. One person made a parallel to something that probably means alot to them, and doesn't make the tragedies in real life any less real or relevant.

    I remember that demo. That was my first exposure to Klonoa, played it so many times over as well. Klonoa is one of those weird series that I've always wanted to give a shot, but found no time. I found one of the GBA games way back, and even picked up the PS1 classic of Klonoa. Only other thing I remember is that in Tales of Hearts for DS (another niche Namco series I love), you can call him out to assist you with a wind attack, lots of Namco/Tales cameos in that game, which they usually do to some degree. Dammit now y'all about to give me my new obsession of the month.
