  1. I guess not being a hardcore gamer by most people's definition of the term is an advantage to me. Games to me are like alcohol. Something to do with friends occassionally but not a huge part of my life. So when I purchase a Sonic game, I don't do it with the active mindset of "I'm supporting a franchise." I do it with the thought of "Here's something to kill a few hours of my time or create a point of discussion with friends." It's not to say that don't appreciate the artistry of games as a medium or that I don't recognize the faults of the series. But a bad game is just a bad game to me, not some life investment. Rarely do bad games make me legit angry and the ones that do are usually the obvious offenders. Your Sonic 06's and your Shadows and your Booms. Something that is mediocre but otherwise fairly inoffensive like Sonic Lost World doesn't really bother me. So I guess my answer to the question here is that I continue to support the series because I just plain don't care. Not a complex thing, really.
  2. Sonic Force- 100 ring cap in "Easy Mode"

    If there's an item shop similar to the one in Sonic Generations, that's going to make ring farming a chore.
  3. worst restaurants ever!

    So this topic went past our radar, but for future reference we ask for a slightly more vocal and detailed thread quality. For more information, see the topic below. As a note, please try to give a bit more detail and thought into your posts in this topic and elsewhere. Posts that are just "this restaurant sucks" won't cut it!

  5. Question about Shadow the Hedgehog and Maria

    I mean, being a secret agent beats working at Burger King, I guess. I was kind of getting lethargic on every Shadow story being about his fragile sense of trust in people, but I did like post-reboot Archie so I'm sure they would have probably maybe done it a fairly entertaining way.
  6. Question about Shadow the Hedgehog and Maria

    I mean, the G.U.N. Commander also called for the extermination of said immortal, time-stopping super being because of his own personal vendetta, even before he knew whether or not he had done anything wrong. So even as recent as ShTH, G.U.N. was pretty corrupt. It's essentially part of his arc on learning to forgive and that people should not judged by the actions of their forefathers and whatnot. Doesn't make it any less silly, considering the other terrible things they do. (See above)
  7. Question about Shadow the Hedgehog and Maria

    Worth a note: G.U.N. is supposed to be seen as just a little corrupt. It wouldn't be out of character for them to want Shadow completed so they could have him for their own purposes "just in case."
  8. Question about Shadow the Hedgehog and Maria

    Very serious totally not dumb fan theory: Maria was dead long before the ARK. The GUN commander has multicolored eyes. The amber colored eye allows him to see ghosts, of which Maria is one. Nobody understood the GUN commander and he was often lonely so he made friends with ghost Maria. So when the ARK was shut down, it meant that he was separated from Maria, not because she died in front of him. Gerald Robotnik heard stories about Maria from the GUN Commander, who by the way is another one of his experiments, and used them as inspiration for the framework of Shadow's pre-programmed memory. And also Ash is in a coma and that's why he and Spiderman never age. More serious answer: I think the games ultimately want us to believe Maria is real. I think what Gerald meant by 'designing his mind to be perfect, pure' is obedient and not accustomed to the cruelty of man and thus more ready to accept the idea of retribution by way of the complete extinction of the human race. My thought process is that Gerald did not change any memories. At most, maybe repressed some of them. Think for example how you can delete files off a hard drive yet someone can still access them if they know how and if it's done in a timely manner, which is what Amy metaphorically did. Shadow's entire arc leaves A LOT of glaring questions unanswered though so I don't think we'll ever have a definitive answer for the numerous suggestions posed. Similar to how Knuckles' backstory arc was dismissed at the end of SA1 as "well I still don't know anything but whatever," I don't feel like the Adventure games ever meant to deliver a detail rich story as much as they sort of wanted to draw you in on the concept of a dark, tragic story than the actual execution.

      Weren't they already in the Xbox version?

    3. Solly


      They were always in the Xbox version, but were put in the PC versions a couple days ago. 

    4. Tara


      They're only just now getting in the PC version.  I don't stay up to date enough to know anything about the other versions.

  13. What Sonic games have you 100% completed?

    My ability and patience to one hundred percent complete games, in general, is pretty small. Like, unless there's some reason to want to complete it one hundred percent (such as unlocking abilities and things that you can use in later playthroughs) or the challenges themselves are actually fun (which they often aren't), then I just can't be bothered. Too much to do, too little time, etc. As far as Sonic games go, I have 100%-ed a few of them. But not as many as I would like. - Sonic 1, 2, 3+K (16-bit) - Sonic 3D Blast - Sonic Advance 2 - Sonic Rush - Sonic Mania I feel like there's one more I'm forgetting, but I can't think of what it could be. I've been meaning to finish SADX and SA2B for over a decade but I just don't see that happening anytime soon, and I've already just copied a save file from the internet on the PC versions of each just to experience the bonuses, so it will probably remain on the backburner for awhile. I tried to 100% Heroes, but god those pinball stages are bad.
  14. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    Perhaps we should keep discussions about our personal works in the Showcase forum or status updates, yeah? At a cursory glance, this seems rather non-sequitur to the topic at hand.
