  1. I think Pokémon's strongest potential lies in slice of life and episodic moments, which is where I actually think the anime does very well. I never cared for the main plots and it's rather disappointing that side stories like the aforementioned creation of Mewtwo have largely been dropped from the picture. NPCs aren't ever important either, the only reason to talk to everyone in a town is to see if any of them give you an item. I don't think the games even need an evil team or plot-relevant legendary, just giving each town its own mini-plot would go a long way in helping me become more invested in what's going on
  2. What are some good Generations level mods

    1. Indigo Rush

      I'm not sure there really are any, aside from the Unleashed ones. I've seen an Emerald Coast one floating around though that got a lot of attention. That one's probably the most 'complete'.

      I actually really enjoyed this one:

       

      There's also a few Colors level mods that look neat but I can't seem to track down atm. There's like this one for Aquarium Park that takes all the major acts from it and combines them into one massive level.

      This one's pretty fun

       

  3. lol I didn't know this move was still in Generations. Now if only the crawl could be put back in...

      I still have no idea why they removed this and crawling from Colors and Gens.

      I believe it's accessible, but only through modding on the PC version. I think.

      Okay, what the heck happened? I literally sent that 4-times when I wanted to do it only once. Sorry about that, I guess the site's messing up a bit today.

  4. Despite Forces itself, the PC port turned out very good compared to previous Sonic PC games, and I just found out that it was developed by Hardlight which was responsible for the Steam version of Valkyria Chronicles. Hope they stick around for future Sonic games.

      Still pretty sad that Forces was the one very well optimized that it even runs well on my awful pc, while Generations on my PC freezes sometimes.

      Generations PC port has not aged well. A totally broken online mode, a complete inability to boot on modern systems without registry editing, and a habit of crashing whenever the hell it wants to all make me dread trying to set everything up after a fresh install. It's in dire need of an overhaul, but that could likely break most if not all mod compatibility.

    4. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      it doesn't even let you change the graphics besides shadows and vsync, it is absolutely awful.

  5. I don't think there's enough to go off here to have any meaningful discussion.
  6. Been trying to go for S-ranks in Billy Hatcher, it's been tough (like... extremely so, surprisingly) but I managed to do all of the first two worlds and-

  7. Billy Hatcher is flawed but it's so charming I can't help but like it anyway

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      I want a Hedgehog Engine Billy Hatcher so bad, but at this point if that franchise ever came back at all it'd probably be something small like a mobile game. In the Sega fan hierarchy of whats seen as important or worth revisiting its always been Sonic, Nights, then like 50 other franchises.... theeen Billy.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      If Sumo makes another All-Stars game I want Billy to come back this time -____-

      I also forgot that he was in Zero Gravity until I unlocked him again recently lol

  8. While hunting for old PC Sonic games it didn't occur to me until recently just how weird Sega was with choosing which games get ported to PC in the 90s and 2000s. Sonic 3 and CD got native PC ports whereas 1 and 2 never did. SADX was ported but not SA2/B. Heroes and Riders were ported but not Shadow or Zero Gravity. And Unleashed seemed like a game that Sega would have announced a PC version alongside the launch due to the immense hype and attention they were putting on it at the time. I know 2006 explicitly had a PC port planned according to some manual ads, which I can see falling through due to the haphazard development and disastrous console release, but the other games in these eras not receiving PC versions really boggles me

      Shaddy Zaphod

      I feel like in 2008 you'd need a pretty strong PC to run Unleashed, considering it was more intensive than Generations which you also needed at least a decent system to run 3 years later

  9. I just played Shadow the Hedgehog for the first time and I'm really tired

      Can you see all of me walkin to mah density

  10. oh for fuck's sake Dio knock this shit off and don't ruin this topic more than you already have. This is a thread about 100% wish fulfillment involving a scenario (becoming the franchise leader) that has as much chance of happening as becoming the US president. Sometimes people just want to talk about stuff they want - you know, for fun - without being put on trial, and this is the fucking hill you're dying on and it's pathetic
  11. Oh sorry guys I completely misinterpreted what the topic was about. Initially I thought this thread was about what I, myself, would personally want to do with the series, not what I would do that other people want. Me wanting the FFs in the games was totally stupid since there are other people who don't want them, man I feel dumb for thinking about stuff that would make me happy to see, sorry for the mix-up guys also if one more person tells me "there's no point in adding them" (like that's actually gonna convince me the more times you say it?? and what's honestly the point of any of the other suggestions posted in this topic if you're gonna pull the pointless card) I'm gonna lose it lmao
  12. ...They'd be friends with Sonic who sometimes helps him fight Eggman? It's not hard for me to imagine how they'd fit into the games. Put them as they are minus the "fighting for freedom" bent, childhood connections, and romance. It'd be like introducing any other new character. The lack of imagination in this topic surrounding these characters in particular is weird to me. Either people try to act like there's no logical reason to have them or they have to think of entirely new roles that don't make them remotely the same characters as before. I am literally in my corner going marge_thinks_potatoes_are_neat.jpg, why do people take issue with that
  13. I'm confused by and pretty tired of people telling me that these characters don't fit the series or add anything interesting. I don't even know what those words mean at all no matter how many times I hear them. Like, I'm fine with people not caring about them or not liking them to want to see them show up in the games, you don't have to waste your breath with really bizarre reasons that don't make any sense to justify that opinion
  14. I unlocked Super Sonic in Zero Gravity again and he's a lot worse than I remember him being. At least in the first Riders he was hard to use but like... it was possible to actually win races with him..

    1. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      Oh, it’s definitely possible. I always won matches whenever I played as him (although that’s probably because I was already pretty good at the game)

      But yeah, he was a fairly lackluster character in hindsight. The fact that he can’t really use the gravity moves REALLY hinders him.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      ZG is a pretty lackluster game in general but I had fun doing the mission mode again. (I hated mission mode in Riders 1)

    3. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      Yeah, Riders 1 was a lot better in most aspects, honestly.

      BUUUUUUUT, I do have a lot nostalgic memories with Zero Gravity, so it’s hard for me to really dislike it, even with its flaws. 

    4. Sean

      Sean

      It has Blaze so it's an alright game

      No lies detected, ZG's vocal themes rule.

    7. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      and both are better than “Free”

  15. They could be revamped for the games like how the Chaotix were redesigned for Heroes. I just think it'd be fun to have them around
  16. I would introduce the Freedom Fighters into the games and watch the internet burn. Also Blaze will be playable in every game from now on
  17. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 50 posts to view.
  18. Sonic Colors at 60FPS is a life-changing experience and I'm never playing it on Wii hardware again

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      How has this game never been ported yet. I hate it 

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      I don't get why Sega seems so reluctant to porting the Sonic games people like in general

      Also, mapping sidestep to shoulder buttons

    4. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      I didn't even know you *could* map sidestep to the shoulder buttons for Colours

    5. Sean

      Sean

      You just have to map left and right to the shoulder buttons, makes it functionally identical to the sidestep in other games except it makes Sonic move left and right when not in sidestep sections

    6. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      The same could be said about any Sonic game of that era tbh.

      I honestly think that I can pinpoint the exact moment I went full on PC to when I was first played through the forest section in adabat at 60fps (through the Unleashed Generations mod). There was simply no turning back after that.

    7. shdowhunt60

      shdowhunt60

      Sonic Colors played through Dolphin is fucking gorgeous. Like it's amazing what Sonic Team could squeeze out of the Wii in the first place, and it's surprisingly just well the game scales up with resolution. There's lots of moment in the game that just makes my jaw just drop.

      It really is disappointing how, after Generations, I just can't say that about a Sonic game any more. Forces in particular was just such an ugly, ugly game.

    8. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Oh, Sonic Forces is technically impressive, it really does look good. But with a poor art direction, it never appears as such. It’s like every “realistic” game these days, where it does look amazing, but only on a technical level.

      Compare that to Unleashed and Colours, which both have a very strong art direction, and both know clearly what they were looking to achieve, even if Colours was technically weak, and the Unleashed was too powerful for the hardware it was released on.

  19. I enjoy Riders but it really needed a difficulty setting and option to disable turbulence

  20. @Ferno If you dig One Piece's music you should check out Gravity Rush/Daze's OST sometime. Same composer (Kouhei Tanaka) and some of the music is OP as hell: 

     

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      Just now seeing this post and wow that is One Piece af

      But other than that I always told myself I'd get Gravity Rush in general if I ever get off my butt and get another Sony console

    2. Ryannumber1Santa

      Ryannumber1Santa

      I can’t recommend Gravity Rush enough. It’s a massively underrated Sony property, and it’s a crying shame that Sony didn’t give Remastered a proper push on PS4, likely causing Gravity Rush 2’s sales problems.

      If you do get another Sony console, GR/GR2 should definitely be one of your first pick ups, it’s a fantastic series that needs more love.

    3. Sean

      @Ryannumber1Scarer I 100% completed the first game and enjoyed my time with it. Even picked up a European physical copy since US ones are scarce.

      Spoiler

      it's also the only Sony exclusive IP I think is worth a damn

       

  21. Managed to get my copy of Sonic & Knuckles Collection on PC working last night =D Eat your heart out, Sonic 3 Complete/AIR !! ...

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Also installed and got working Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic CD (1996) using Sega PC Reloaded. All of the games come with a mirrored mode which makes for a really fun and somewhat new experience.

    2. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      I'd like to one day be able to play the PC version of 3D Blast even if it's not quite as good as the Saturn version.

    3. Sean

      Sean

      PC version of 3D Blast was my first ever Sonic game so I'm glad I held onto my copy and can get it working again. Playing these ports again, they hold up surprisingly well and were solid efforts back in the 90s, although CD '96 has a few odd collision issues that I don't recall happening in the Sega CD version.

  22. Do people here still talk about Sonic

    1. Speederino

      Speederino

      If I started doing that consistently I'd be very disappointed in myself.

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Nothin' to talk about.

      What the fuck is a Sonic?

    7. tailsBOOM!
  23. What happened was that the URLs for the main.htm and navi.htm pages got turned into .html files and broke the main layout. If you rename them you can access them and the rest of the site. https://www.deco.franken.de/main.html https://www.deco.franken.de/navi.html Might try to back up what I can from this site sometime next week.
  24. I loved every single moment of that episode. Was not at all expecting them to touch on Tails's backstory either, and the broship between him and Sonic was just great. Pleeeeeaaaaase let these guys work on the next Sonic cartoon 🙏
