  1. Have I gone insane or did someone delete my autobiographical goof from the 'Why are u like Sonic' thread?

      Oh, a moderator believed it was posted in the wrong topic, but I see now that's not the case, so I've restored it.

      Thank ye Monkey, for allowing my strange goof place on this forum.

      It's been a while, what's up with this place?

  2. What is up, have had a strange couple of weeks, every single expat in China is fucking mental. Had multiple people address with 'Sup N****' after I sent them polite introductory messages on social media, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING PEOPLE

  3. So I bought a PS3 as a little birthday gift to myself, and it finally arrived yesterday - Turned it on, it works, but i need to update the firmware in order to sign in to PSN. When I install the new firmware, it completely shits up the console. Now nothing works, all of the safe mode features just work for a few seconds then go to a black screen forever.

      Sucks that had to happen. See if you can get it repaired under warranty.

  4. I played thru the Hero story of SA2 last night and I couldn't stop thinking about what would happen if, instead of the boring anime president, Dr Robotnik threatens Donald Trump with the eclipse cannon.

    There's still time, 2016.  

  5. I have made the single worst purchase of my life - a keyboard where the backspace key is tiny.

  6. Leonard Cohen just died. Why 2016 feels the need to twist the knife is beyond me. The worst fucking year. 

    1. SurrealBrain


      Sure wish I knew. The worst part is that we still have one more month of 2016 after this.

      I just hope 2017 won't be as bad as predicted.

      Good Luck implies there's a positive outcome to all this

  7. 'Just 5 more minutes', says a sleepy Hyp3hat. Woke up an hour later, which doesn't mean I'm late for class, but does mean I don't really have a morning. Boo *sips coffee hurriedly*

    Buying a guitar today, which I am super psyched about. 

  8. Finally played Sonic Utopia, and I thought it was very good, unsurprisingly! He could run a little faster, but it felt very good to play. Hope the devs actually design some levels for it down the road

  9. Feeling sad and homesick, so I bought GTA V, Rise Of The Tomb Raider, Megaman Legacy Collection, Firewatch, Superhot and CLUSTERTRUCK.

    Stupid ridiculously cheap games due to Chinese currency. Clustertruck cheered me right up though, that game is fucking amazing

    1. goku262002


      ...Chinese? where are you?!

    2. Hyp3hat


      ... China1 I moved out here to work, hence the homesick part. Chinese currency is something of a joke compared to pounds, hence the ridiculous binge. 

  10. tfw when you want Sonic songs covered in a stupidly specific genre and youtube isn't helping you out

  11. Anyone else having trouble downloading Sonic Utopia? Or is my internet just junk?

  12. I wanna know the price before I am totally on board the Switch train, but it looks pretty dope tbh. 

    Only point of concern is that it mostly showed Wii U games as its selling points, but then Nintendo made some decent looking games for the Wii U that I never played because it's the Wii U, and if it had good third party support I'd be onboard. 

    But I'm so into the idea of a console you can literally shove into a bag and bring round a mates house to play some Mario Kart, like that's been my dream since I was 6. 

    1. Cyrus


      It's been said to be $399

    2. Hyp3hat


      I mean, my main issue is that I'm living in China for the forseeable and they only just started selling game consoles here for the first time in over ten years, so pricing may get crazy, but it may get crazy in a good way.

      We'll see. Like I say, I'm so very into the idea of the console (much more so than the Wii U, or even the Wii), but 3rd party support will be the thing that makes or breaks it, same as it ever was for Nintendo. 


    3. Cyrus


      I'm concerned about third party support too but who they have on board so far has me optimistic

  13. Anyone savvy with console regions? Idly thinking of picking up a cheap PS3 in China (want to play MGS Legacy Collection/other things i bought over the years) but thanks to the Great Firewall PSN is region locked. So, if I bought a secondhand PS3, presumably Chinese, would I be able to log in/buy/download games with my UK PSN account?

  14. Weird shit they do in China #78 They do absolutely horrific things in the name of Pizza here. Last night, a colleague ordered some with our dinner and it was a thin cracker, with lukewarm fruit chunks (like, apple or something, not pineapple which is vaguely acceptable) on top covered in a thick layer of what was supposed to be cheese. No tomato sauce, no meats or toppings of any kind, just those three ingredients. 

    War crimes, imo.

    1. Forte-Metallix


      I've heard of Chinese bootleg merchandise, but bootleg food?!

  15. Have I told you guys how much I love Sonic Adventure? It's videogaming comfort food to me. It's aged poorly, but it's just a big goofy mess and I can't really get mad at it. 


    But damn, the Dreamcast version looks so much better than DX - much more subdued and natural, as opposed to glossy character models and overly light textures. And that little Sonic character model is a nice pudgy lad.

      Sonic Adventure is one of my all time favourites. I even like it more than Adventure 2. Dreamcast version is best.

    2. Menace2Society


      I like Adventure 1 even though, I only ever played the HD rereleases.

    3. skull902


      I also prefer the Dreamcast version of SA1 and love both games quite a bit. I like SA2 more (with the GameCube version being my favorite,) but I think 1 is better in terms of gameplay.

  16. I've been away for a while, what's the latest hedgehog discourse

  17. Told a bunch of Chinese kids my favourite game ever was Sonic 2. They had no idea who Sonic was ;_;

    1. Teoskaven


      Have you then told them to get off your lawn?

    2. Hyp3hat


      These kids and their legs of legends and underwatches, why i oughta...

    3. Ryannumber1Santa


      Tbf, who among us truly knows what a Sonic is?

    4. Hyp3hat


      That is true, for when they asked me what a Sonic was, I looked deep within myself and could not give them an answer, and I could only shed a tear and ask 'What is a Sonic, indeed?'

  18. So I'm trying to add a photo to my signature, but the resizer in the signature thingy also doesn't work, every time it says it's too large. 

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      You gotta crop it or resize it

      Pick your poison

      Just make sure its around 450x200

    2. Zaysho


      What Crow said.

      Pixel size is 450x200, but I think there's also an image size limit of 400kb combined with the avatar.

    3. Monkey Destruction Switch

      You have to resize the image itself. Even if you change it to be the right size with the resizer, it won't work unless the original file was the right size.

    4. Hyp3hat


      Ah ok, I thought the resizer would do that. Ta for yr help

  19. I just gave a speech to 4,000 Chinese kids at half 7 in the morning and somehow didn't die. First class in a couple of hours. Where the coffee at.

      Where were you that required you to give a speech to 4000 (!) Chinese kids at half past 7 in the morning?

    3. Kiah


      Wow you got right to work after your move to China! That's very impressive and you definitely deserve some coffee :) 

    4. Hyp3hat


      It's all go, lads. BTW, Chinese school starts at 8am and ends at 6pm, according to my timetable here. These kids are essentially working full time jobs, how do they not end up crazy. 

  20. Is it just me, or did everyone sleep on The Wolf Among Us? Played the first episode last night, and I thought it was fucking amazing. Then again, I'm a sucker for noir detective fiction so it pushes all my buttons. 

    1. JezMM


      It was pretty well talked about back when it came out, just the hype died quickly once the series was over.  Such is my observation anyway, I haven't played it yet.

    2. Haalyle


      I've watched a full playthrough of the game. Loved it, but completely forgot about it. So, I might get to playing it sometime.

  21. After roughly 8 hours of travelling by plane and bus, I am finally in my Chinese apartment. It's huge! I'm exhausted! China is a pretty crazy place! Thankfully I don't have to start until Monday....

    1. Kiah


      That sounds like quite an adventure! Hope you rest well!

    2. Person


      Wow, congrats!

      Seems like an exciting time, I wish you the best on your new life.

    3. Hyp3hat


      It's very exciting, as well as terrifying and exhausting. I've been here a week, and every day I've been travelling somewhere or learning something. Besides a campus tour of the school I'm working at, I can just relax

      And go to the supermarket, which will be an adventure. 


    1. Mando-Whirl-Wind


      Good luck dude, be careful

    2. Cyrus


      Moved to China from where?

    3. Kiah


      Wow...well be careful and hope you adjust to your new home and surroundings okay and soon!

    4. Hyp3hat


      Moved from the UK - it's pretty great so far, just had a nailbiting drive from the airport to my current abode. Overtaking into oncoming traffic (...constantly), cutting through people on the inside line round corners, trying to overtake going into a toll gate (!!!!). Certainly woke me up after not getting any sleep on the flight...

      Going to explore the town in earnest tomorrow, but it's pretty sweet. Thanks for all the good wishes. 

  23. My all time favourite musical artist is currently playing a festival in a park near my house. I couldn't afford the ticket, but I can hear them semi clearly depending on the wind. 

    This is a uniquely depressing experience. 

  24. I have a mashup of Smash Mouth's All Star weirdly medleyed in Mellow Yellow by Donovan, that I invented, that's just been popping up constantly in my head in quiet moments. ECHOALIA PLEASE
