  2. https://discord.com/invite/h7yAft2 I looked through the main site and couldn't see any way of joining it from there either. I'll relay the issue.
  3. There isn't enough on this subject to really warrant its own topic. The status updates serve this kind of purpose however, so feel free to post these sorts of thoughts there.
  4. Finished this Sonic drawing that I'm suuuuper proud of ❤️

      Looks great!!!

  5. If you're playing the Steam version of Sonic CD then it's worth installing the mod loader and enabling these bugfix codes (you'll have to edit the Code.lst file in the mods folder). One of my biggest issues with the newer port is that time travel takes slightly longer than it did in the original, so the time warp fix takes care of that issue nicely. It also resets the clock back to 5'00"00 if the level timer is higher than that while warping, just like in the Sega CD version.

  7. Sega is temporarily giving away a Golden Axe sequel prototype on the 18th

      Iir, this is the pitch that SEGA Australia proposed for their initiative after they were done with Castle of Illusion.

  8. Any PS3 games (including PS1/2 Classics) worth checking out?

    1. Polkadi~☆

      SMT: Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2

      Puppeteer is a criminally underappreciated 2d platformer, Modnation Racers is a good kart racing game, PS All Stars is a decent Sony Smash clone, The first 2 Little Big Planet games paved the way for Mario Maker(Miyamoto himself said he was a fan of them back in the day), Ratchet and Clank is great of course. You also can play on it the definitive version of Ico..

      I picked up physical copies of DDS but I've been eyeing Persona 2 and Devil Summoner since those are much more expensive on the second hand market. Might look into Puppeteer as well.

      Spec Ops the Line comes to mind. Its a FPS yes but it managed to defy the tropes other FPS were doing at the time to the point where it deconstructs the genre. It hasn't gotten a port to PS4 yet but its worth checking out.

    5. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I thought that was a third person shooter?

    6. Sean

      Sean

      I'm mostly looking into exclusives and PS1/2 classics (Spec Ops is on PC) because Good Guy Sony is getting rid of PS3 games on the web storefront in a few days, but yeah I have heard interesting things about it sans spoilers. Might keep an eye out for a GOG sale that has it.

    7. Polkadi~☆

      If you have a Japanese PSN account, you can get Shadow the Hedgehog.

      No idea why you'd want to do that, but you can.

    8. Sean

      Sean

      lol

      I haven't gotten much use out of my Japanese account but I did buy Twinkle Star Sprites: La Petite Princesse.

      Oh yeah Haunting Ground aka Demento is on JP PSN too. Its one of my favorite games but you might need to either know Japanese or the game before hand to figure out what the menus and items do. I don't think its too bad that you can play with the language barrier since everything is spoken in English anyways but yeah.

      I happened to watch a video about "Ape Escape," it's a game I've wanted to try but never had the chance. I've only heard good things if your looking to try it.

      I also really got into a game called "Choro Q" on PS2. It was like a strange adventure game in which you play as a sentient car and win races while traveling an overworld. It felt like a fairly niche game and while I loved it 15 years ago, it might not be for everyone.

      Oh, if you like platforming and customising, you could look into "Graffiti Kingdom." You can create your own character and people make some creative stuff if you check out the game on YouTube.

      I don't know how available my last two suggestions will be.

    11. Sean

      Sean

      I'm no good with horror games but I do love watching them so I'll probably check out a longplay of Haunting Ground, especially since it's in-season.

      I have the US and Japanese (PSN) versions of Ape Escape and it's pretty good. The other two don't seem to be on PSN at all though.

      @Sean To be fair the not purchasing thing is only for web and mobile. ps3 content will still be purchasable on the console itself:

      https://www.gamespot.com/articles/sony-is-reportedly-scaling-back-the-playstation-store-on-web-and-mobile/1100-6483174/

      "The biggest change is that PS3, PSP, and PS Vita games will no longer be able to be purchased from mobile or web storefronts. They will only be available through the store apps on the PS3 or PS Vita. Notably, the PSP store on the device was discontinued back in 2016, meaning PSP players will only be able to digitally purchase games through a PS3 or PS Vita."

      Will vouch for the LBP games (1 & 2), absolutely fantastic games, and ModNation Racers being criminally underrated. (There's also LBP Karting, which is effectively MNR but with an LBP flavor.)

      And if you like PS1 platformers, the original Crash and Spyro trilogies are up there, as well as the original Crash Team Racing.

      thatgamecompany's stuff is pretty nice too, although I'm only familiar with flower. Heard incredible things about Journey (which was pegged by many as a GOTY when it came out), as well as good things about flow.

      Trying to purchase games on the PS3 is a nightmare so it might as well be dead at this point. I'm sure Sony will kill the PS3 storefront for real in the near future. This fucking company does a tremendous job making me regret not buying an Xbox.

    15. Polkadi~☆

      Also, even if you don't have the earlier models of the PS3 with backwards compatibility for the PS2, every model supports PS1 games.

      I'd say to get the games you absolutely cannot get physically, like the rarer limited release games.

    16. Sean

      Sean

      Generally I prioritize games I can't find for under 50 dollars or Japanese imports. Like yeah I could buy a physical copy of Persona 2 but the prices on Pricecharting make me not want to lol

      Earlier, I picked up Speed Power Gunbike and Rakugaki Showtime on Japanese PSN. The latter is pretty fun, it's basically Smash Bros. if everyone was Ness. Also it has Marina Liteyears which I didn't know about until I fought her!!

       

  9. Two things: - We locked your original topic because it was more or less a complete reupload of copyrighted material that you don't own. Please do not make any further topics on this same subject. - Don't make low-effort topics advertising your videos with a copy/paste description. We're not a social media site. If you would like to post your videos here (that aren't reuploads of episodes) then feel free to make a single topic for all of your videos accompanied with a short description of what each video is about.
  10. I hope Sega modified the Sonic 2 ROM on Steam so that it forces intrusive ads and broken controls onto the player even for people who have previously paid for it, for the true free Sonic giveaway experience.

      Can they make sure that it crashes a lot too? I feel like that's a key part to the Sonic 2 experience

  11. I think you've made your purpose for joining this forum loud and clear. Unfortunately we're not accepting registrations from members who are solely interested in attacking and trolling others repeatedly for their opinions. Take care.

  13. This Blaze mod for Sonic Mania is really good. Every game needs a Blaze mod

    https://gamebanana.com/skins/178593

  14. Used to be I was a staunch defender of the "one button only" design choice of the Genesis games, but now I don't think it would hurt to have another even if I still don't mind that choice. The problem I have with the Advance games' moveset is that the extra abilities didn't seem too useful; they weren't inherently useless but these games just aren't designed for combat, and many of said moves killed your speed in a way that rolling and jumping don't. It felt as though the developers added them simply because they were staples in the Adventure games. It also doesn't help that the instashield seemed to be heavily nerfed if not outright useless in Advance. I use it all the time in Sonic 3 but couldn't find any use for it elsewhere. Even in Mania it doesn't feel like it has the same properties, but I haven't messed around with it too much there to tell for sure.
  15. The drop dash is "what if the spin dash was actually good"
  16. I didn't know about this mod until you mentioned it. I tried it out and it's now resting comfortably in my "always on" mods subfolder. Thanks for that. Link if anyone else wants to check it out:
  17. A nice benefit to using the mod loader is that you can turn off the 1up jingle for 100 rings, though not for the monitors for some reason. I don't mind the latter as much though since you have to deliberately grab those whereas hearing it after getting so many rings in a level gets old fast
  18. The puyo boss in Mania always makes me feel hella dumb

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Either I'm just really good at Puyo Puyo...

       

      ...or u suck lawl

    2. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      During the rest of the entire game: Haha yes, p = mv, s = Δt, f = µN - sin(arctan(xbutton.hold()))

      Getting thrown into that boss: uuuuh *mind rapidly flips through the tetris-esque games playbook upside down*

    3. Celestia

      Celestia

      I don't understand Puyo enough to bother with anything fancy in that boss, since it feels like he self-destructs after a while anyway. I don't know if that's true but whenever I played Mean Bean I never got very far since you kind of HAVE to do combos.

  19. Think this can be talked about here.
  20. It's pretty weird how people have been acting like SMRPG was never an important game for the last few years

    1. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      They only do it to downplay Geno’s importance

      I don't mind if people don't like Geno or don't want him in Smash, and tbh I don't really care as much anymore either, but I won't stand by this blatant disrespect for SMRPG I've been seeing as of late

    4. Thigolf

      Important in what way..?

      SMRPG was designed to be an entry point for the JRPG genre in the west because Squaresoft's RPGs had only been selling well in Japan up to that point, and it was a major unprecedented collaboration between two of the most popular video game developers featuring the most popular video game mascot at the time. The historical context surrounding it is significant and it sold about as well as one could hope for since it was near the end of the SNES's lifespan.

  21. That makes me further doubt that Insomniac thought about how this new Peter will fit into the original game from a narrative point. Like others have said, this is meant to be a version of Peter with eight years of experience, and whether or not the original looked too old for a 23-year-old or the new actor looks too young is kind of a distraction topic, since the idea was to visually sell us on the idea that this Peter has been Spider-Man for a really long time. Stress and labor ages people, and this new guy doesn't have that look.
