    The 2013 Tomb Raider reboot is such a good game. For some reason I get the urge to replay it this time every year. It's just one of those games that's really good to re-experience from start to finish every so often. 
    But the sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider? It's so bloated. Bigger is not always better. Despite some genuinely improves mechanics, it's generally much worse to play. And the story sucks. It's dreadful. Not to mention Lara herself is such an entitled, selfish and self-centred brat in it. She was such a good character in the first one. 
    All of the problems I have with Rise have turned me off the idea of playing Shadow.

    Hidden Palace in Sonic 2 mobile is such a good level. Really crap boss fight, but the level itself is so fun and full of original ideas. I was really pleased to see that even it got a bit of representation in Mania, as the Jellygnite Badnik made for this level reappears in Mania's Hydrocity. Such a nice detail.
    The fact that SEGA have slept on this lovely bit of content for so long bugs the hell out of me. The mobile ports of S1, S2 and SCD are brilliant. But SEGA never uses them, and actively trashed them all when they were updated to the SEGA Forever brand.

    The thread about the Colours Ultimate in Retro is enlightening. So many different opinions about the game, from hate to love, but most people fall somewhere in the middle. It's the amount of discussion surrounding the 2D/3D nature of the game though that's really interesting to read (provided you can get through some off the really petty and nonsensical arguments). The jury is still out on whether it's mostly 2D or 3D and that in itself is really telling, don't you think? The fact that it's even a point of discussion?
    Whether it's mostly 2D or 3D isn't the main issue, as far as I'm concerned at least. The problem lies in the fact that the 3D gameplay is shallow and passive. The 3D areas are usually (not always) empty corridors or quick step areas. The active gameplay, including almost all of the platforming, is 2D.
    Colours isn't a bad game at all. It's pretty good. But it's just not a 3D platformer.

    It always bugged me how un-colourful the selection of Wisps in Colours DS was. Red, yellow, orange, violet, cyan and white (which is actually just light blue). Not like it matters in any way at all, but it just looks imbalanced.

    There's almost a lot of Sonic news right now. Like, we're expecting to hear about so many different things and nothing has amounted to anything yet.
    SEGA have been waiting on news of some kind since SXSW was cancelled last year, but have gone dead silent on the matter.
    There's likely a 2021 major new game (/one to be announced for a release next year) for the 30th anniversary celebrations, but SEGA haven't said a peep. 
    Several voice actors have left, but we haven't got a clue who the replacements might be.
    Sonic Colours Ultimate's existence has been leaked, but there's no saying when SEGA will actually show it off.
    Sonic Prime exists, but we know nothing about it apart of the most basic premise.

    I really wouldn't mind at all if the humans in Sonic games looked like those characters in Balan Wonderworld. I have never quite understood why some people are so against the idea of humans in Sonic games. 
    Sana for one example:
    Or Leo for another:
    They would just fit in so well. And that's really no surprise considering who designed all of these characters in the first place. 
    I always liked the Pixar-esque humans of Unleashed and certainly wouldn't mind seeing those designs again. This style blends in with the design is Sonic and the other anthro characters even better though. It leans more into a Japanese, anime look. SA1 had verrrry 90s anime human designs.
    Anything other than the hyper realistic humans of 06, basically. And SA2 and Shadow didn't do a particularly good job of it either. If they look too realistic like in those games, then off course is going to feel weird to a lot of the audience. But if the humans are designed to match the anthros, everything would blend together seamlessly. And the humans can be designed as creatively and stylised as the Sonic and the rest. The Balan human characters would be pretty perfect, I think. The only problem with the Balan characters is poor animation in 3D, where they all have the 'mascot suit' and 'grapefruit hands' problem from half-arsed mo-cap.

They basically just steal the work of orders, and when there are citations made they're typically so poor that people don't know where to look to learn more themselves. Bonus points for when they inevitably include ludicrous theories that are demonstrably false, again because they don't actually have a fucking clue what they're talking about.
