  1. Lopes was the wrong person for Jacques to blame, and he did it in a way that utterly vilified him as opposed to bringing up his issues in a reasonable manner. He should have directed his ire towards Sega and he was very flippant towards users attempting to correct him in the Twitter thread (before he deleted it), telling them they were wrong without explaining why at all. All of my respect for Jacques and his work has withered away and he should apologize to Lopes, who was dragged through the mud for all the wrong reasons. If not then that bitter old man can fuck off.
  2. This is far too vague of a question for anyone to give meaningful help based on what you've said. Plus, because this is a fan modification, I believe your time would be better spent contacting the developer of this mod for any issues you have. If the mod creator has a channel for their works, such as on YouTube or GameBanana, I suggest you shoot them a private message or comment about your issue and see if you can work something out from there.
  3. Richard Jacques' response to the remix on Twitter is fucking disgraceful. All my respect for him and his work has crashed through the floor.

      At the very least if you didn't like it and in his profession must give constructive criticism fine, but he didn't even do that. Just completely flung Lee's name in the mud. From what I saw, Lee didn't directly credit him or TJ at first, but even she endorsed it. And that wasn't even posted on his own Twitter to begin with. 

      If the real problem is between him and SEGA and his words paraphrasing that "this wasn't the first time" about not getting proper credit why unceremoniously bring Lee and his sister down like that? 

    2. Sean


      Going by the replies in his Twitter thread, it's clear he doesn't care about being wrong about the situation. He has a bone to pick and is coming off as a monumental jackass over absolutely nothing.

      What makes it worse for me is I remember people attacking his Burnout track he did for SaASRT, where he made it clear this was his interpretation. Now someone remixes his track he attacks him.

    4. TCB


      I get wanting to be credited for your contributions and SEGA can be lazy about it here and there, but he went after the wrong party in such a tasteless way. 

      Yeah we get it now you got beef. You got beef with the wrong party from what I see here.

    5. Blacklightning


      Okay think I need to see the source of this

      What makes it worse for me is I remember people attacking his Burnout track he did for SaASRT, where he made it clear this was his interpretation. Now someone remixes his track he attacks him.

      Honestly, this discredits anything he has to say as far as I'm concerned.


      And besides, he was credited, his name just wasn't stamped over the video--it's in the description.

      So I guess Sonic R music is going into the vault right alongside Sonic 3's stuff. 

    9. Ryannumber1gamer


      Kind of ironic, I love R's soundtrack, but Can you Feel the Sunshine has always been the exception for me, and while I don't love the new mix, I find it a bit better with the more laidback groove that Tee gave it.

      So someone is claiming the credit was added later. Still not an excuse to go off the deep end at Tee.

    12. Sean



      Multiple people have tried correcting him saying it's Sega he should be blaming and not drag Tee's name like this, and he's just telling them they're wrong without backing his shit up. He's only doubling down on his resentment towards Tee because he doesn't want to admit he's mistaken. Fucking lunatic.

    13. JezMM


      Ugh I'm so mad/bummed out about this.  Sonic 3D is absolutely one of my favourite soundtracks of all time and now it's ruined forever.  Was always excited to see Richard dip back into composing for the modern games, I even liked some of his Boom stuff. He might save himself for me if he apologises.

    14. Thigolf


      Nooo, not Richard Jacques, dangit ::/

    15. Ellipsis-Ultima


      He's deleted the tweets. It's still a petty response tho

  4. I can't believe Sega would just go ahead and confirm the Sonic R remake like that.
  5. So what do you guys make of Sonic Underground? Are people who wrote it off due to it not being anything remotely like Sonic not giving it a fair shake, because it dared to set out and do its own thing divorced from any other previous incarnation? Why is it okay to hate Sonic Underground but not this movie Sonic Underground made Sonic's design more accurate to his original JP one (without the mohawk) compared to AoStH and SatAM, and people still think it's the worst of the DiC cartoons by a country lightyear. The design doesn't mean shit.

  7. wow I can't believe Sakurai wasted all of that time and manpower on nothing more than a Ken echo smh

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      This surprises you? Just a few days ago, Nintendo wasted time, money, and manpower making a whole game about Green Mario. Who the hell makes a game about a Mario echo

    2. Strickerx5


      they continuously waste time not making a Kirby Air Ride sequel so im just used to it now

    3. PublicEnemy1


      @Ryannumber1gamer And they made half of the game playing as a Greener Mario clone! An ECHO of an ECHO!

  9. Got a copy of GCN Gems Collection, been wanting it on and off since it came out but never got around to it so I'm glad to finally have it, even if there's better ways to play all of the games on it these days haha

    1. Sean


      also wtf was up with the speed in CD's special stages

      I already struggle enough with them in other pre-Taxman versions, these look legitimately impossible for me

    2. Blacklightning


      I always just cheesed it out by deliberately targetting the time bonus UFOs instead of hitting all the mandatory ones in one fell swoop.

    3. Menace2Society


      I’m less concerned about the speed of the special stages and more concerned about that audio quality. That is atrocious.

      Was Gems Collection emulation this bad or did the guy who recorded this had really bad recording software?

    4. Sean


      @Menace2Society It's not an emulation, it's a port of the 1996 PC version which had lower quality sound effects than the Sega CD version. So the quality you hear here is what it actually is.

    5. Blacklightning


      That's the game audio. The music might have been CD quality (no idea if Gems compressed it to fit, but it wouldn't surprise me) but even back in the day it always sounded like it was runing through a broken speaker.

    6. Sean



      for comparison

    7. Menace2Society


      Either way, it's hard as hell on the ears. It just makes me even more grateful for the Taxman remaster.

    8. Sean


      You can replace CD's sound effects with the Genesis ones in the Steam version and it's good

  10. Burial at Sea pt. 2 is really fucking good

  11. A new BioShock game should be set in hell

    1. Wraith


      That's just doom dude

    2. Sean


      If they stay the fuck away from everything Infinite was doing then it wouldn't be Doom

    3. Sean


      Just spitballing ideas but some visionary who learns about cross-dimensional travel decides to go against the idea of hell being an inhospitable plane of suffering and sets up shop, promising an escape from divine judgment and mortality. Residents of the hell city travel there thinking they can escape their sins and beat death to the punch, like maybe they invent some technology where you literally can't die if you're in hell (since where would you even go). This goes about as well as anyone with any sense can predict and the city is just one big ironic hell for everyone there and the player is trying to escape or something.

      Also the imagery of hell doesn't have to be the usual fire and brimstone kind with murderous demons. I was thinking something dreary, soul-crushing and suffocating to contrast the comforting design of the city itself. It should be something incredibly otherworldly, and can't possibly exist on any planet. Something that gets people's sins into a feedback loop and they can't escape from. Bourgeois citizens living in that city initially might get a kick out of conquering such a place, thinking they don't have shit to worry about after their time on the mortal spectrum is up.

      I was half-joking when I made this status but I think this could be a way more interesting idea than suggestions I've seen of people wanting the next BioShock to be set in space (space is a really boring idea for this series considering how much it's been done in science fiction as a whole) or in Rapture again. I'm also not craving another BioShock game, I honestly have no informed clue on where the series can go after the last three games. If there had to be another game, then the only setting I can imagine that could top the last two would be something in another dimension, an entirely different plane of existence.

    4. Dejimon11


      Man what happened to bioshock infinite that everybody went from loving it when it first came out to being disappointed

    5. Wraith


      I expect the third game to jist be set in rapture again. I like what Infinite tried to do with the IP but it just wasn't very good and I think it may have killed the series's drive for risktaking.

  12. We got a thread already where you can discuss these protos:
  13. You can just go back to sleep if you're that determined to shit on a character based on completely inaccurate information.
  14. Fun fact! ChaosX, the guy who's responsible for P-06, has never played Sonic 2006:


    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      When not watching/playing the source material is actually a good thing.

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      So...what? He's basically remaking the game according to how he thinks it should play?

    3. Sean


      He's making a lot of tweaks to it to make it play better and he also probably wants to play it himself.

    4. JayRaR


      So what's his motivation for remaking a game he's never played? I feel like you need some interest and knowledge of the game to remake it

    5. Sean



      So what's his motivation for remaking a game he's never played?



      I feel like you need some interest and knowledge of the game to remake it

      He does have knowledge and interest.

  15. I hate to admit it but P-06 is the first time I've ever felt excited for anything Sonic 2006-related lol, it's a really neat-o conversion and the more I learn about its differences from the base game the more impressed I am by it. The previous PC port was an impressive effort but didn't do much to sway me, and I still wasn't sure of what to make of P-06's first demo back in April. Demo 2 has really made me come around to it though (even if the game itself is still pretty garbo), like it actually feels like a playable product now

    1. Adamabba


      i never played 06 before P-06. It was a dope way for me to experience it for the first time lol

    2. JezMM


      Just tried Wave Ocean and Flame Core. I find Sonic a bit slippery - I fell off really simple places in Wave Ocean that I've NEVER fallen off in the original, and the opening pathway of Flame Core was even worse to get around than the original - in that I had to slow down after the automated section to get my bearings - here I had to come to a full stop and walk until the camera settled so I could see the way ahead.

      Other than that though?  Fantastic stuff, it's a bizarre experience to control Knuckles in particular, who felt AWFUL to play as in the original.  His gliding doesn't suck, his climbing animation doesn't look ridiculous, he gets up onto ledges properly, all his punches and attacks connect... It's bizarre for this to look so near-identical to the original game and yet have him handle the way I expect him to in my mind's eye (within the constraints of 2006's jankiness) rather than just being awful in all manner of ways.  The characters having actual facial animation when talking during the character transitions was an unnecessary but surprisingly nice touch too.

      Oh, the spin attack actually damaging enemies rather than HAVING to use homing attacks is also pretty cool.

    3. Sean


      I slipped off Flame Core's beginning a LOT. I later found out that if you turn around on the platform with the first enemy, you can just jump to that section and skip the entire automated sequence

      I also can't figure out how to reliably jump off the swings in Wave Ocean, I managed to do it... maybe three times? Every other time I try to jump from it Sonic just flops off lazily, I never had any problem with timing in SA2 or Generations.

  16. Unlocked Super Sonic in the P-06 demo



    1. Adamabba


      How do you unlock him?

    2. Sean


      Get S-ranks in every level, and then collect the Rainbow Gem in the third section of Kingdom Valley

  17. The Horton movie fucking sucks because I've seen The Peanuts Movie. I've seen what true greatness is

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      The Peanuts movie literally wouldn’t exist in its current state if not for Horton.

    2. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      @Mythical Panda: Do you have a citation for that?

    3. Sean


      Yeah and films wouldn't exist if it weren't for the KKK having a film that painted them as heroes of America

      I'm not thankful for Horton or any Dr. Seuss film made in the last 30 years.

    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda



      Craig [Schulz], stating there is no one “more protective of the comic strip than myself”, chose [Steve] Martino as director because he showed faithfulness to literature in his adaptation of Dr. Suess’ Horton Hears a Who!

    5. Milo


      @Mythical Panda I dunno if I would go that far, but yeah, the Schulz family is on record for saying that they felt Steve Martino did a good job with Horton in terms of being faithful to the book, that they picked him to direct the movie from their script.

      (Of course, it also goes without saying that Blue Sky was apparently the only studio willing to give the Schulz family creative control over their movie as it is...)

    6. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Yeah and films wouldn't exist if it weren't for the KKK having a film that painted them as heroes of America”


    7. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      @Mythical Panda He also directed the fourth Ice Age, apparently.

      It took about six years for the Schulzs to get that film off the ground until they met Blue Sky. Makes me hope Illumination is giving Miyamoto enough of as say as Blue Sky did for them.



      If they aren't?


      Just make'em.

    8. Milo


      @Mythical Panda Sean's referring to the (original) Birth of a Nation from 1915. The film is historically important for not only being one of the first feature films of the medium; it's also credited for near-singlehandedly inventing and/or pioneering a lot of techniques, tools, and tropes fundamental to making films, even today (just to name a few--camera close-ups, fade outs, using an musical score for an orchestra, and staged battle sequences).

      BUT that historical significance is marred by its subject matter (adapted from a book titled The Clansmen). It's a story about two families and their struggle in the American Civil War that paints the KKK as heroes (it's actually credited to the group's resurgence in popularity in that decade) and champions white supremacy; while also vilifying African-Americans as the (now all-too-familiar) racist caricatures of them being unintelligent and predatory towards white women. Dissonance in values doesn't even hit the tip of the iceberg in regards to this movie.

    9. Nix


      @Mythical Panda

      The Birth of a Nation, probably.  Tons of groundbreaking film making techniques came from that movie (or were at least popularized by it).

      But it's an incredibly racist movie that portrays the KKK as America's saviors.

    10. Sean


      I'm mostly being facetious. My standards of what a good animated film adaptation can be changed drastically after I saw the Peanuts film and realized that it wasn't going to be setting any trends. And Horton's really only good compared to other Dr. Seuss movies which isn't a high bar to surpass.

      A better example for me to use would have been Sonic 2006 vs Sonic Unleashed; the former's badness was what made Sega try to turn the franchise around and produce one of my favorite games in the series but it doesn't raise my opinion of 2006 in the least.

  18. There's a higher chance of the next 3D Sonic game being good than there is of a good Dr. Seuss movie coming out in my lifetime so don't give up hope

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      In before people say "Horton" was good


    2. Milo


      horton was decent; good when compared to the other seuss adaptations released before/afterwards.

      (yeah that anime sequence exists, but it lasts for like, two-three minutes. it's a dictionary definition of a big-lipped alligator moment)

      at least we've gotten some cool stuff on the small screen for it like chuck jones' grinch, i suppose. the green eggs and ham show coming to netflix visually looks pretty neat, so i'm pretty curious to see how that plays out.

    3. Menace2Society


      how dare you shit on the 2000 Grinch movie

    4. Perkilator


      Wait, that was actually part of the movie? I didn’t remember that bit at all when I watched it as a kid.

    5. Milo


      grinch 2000 has a delightfully hammy jim carrey performance and impressive makeup but i'm not going to bat for it beyond that. maybe if it didn't have that weird adult/grossout humor it would had held up as a movie more.

      the tone of the grinch 2000 movie also comes off as bad in retrospect because you can see how hard the following cat in the hat movie with mike myers was trying to recapture its success by going overboard with that type of comedy and how it backfired to the point that we can't get anymore live-action seuss films.

    6. Menace2Society


      But it had Jim Carrey!

      JIM FRICKIN CARREY! You can't top that!

    7. Sean


      so yeah I'm never getting a good Dr. Seuss movie in my lifetime huh



    8. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry


      Now, now. We as the Sonic Fanbase have learned that Jim Carrey alone won't save a bad movie.



      That was the CITH film's first mistake: trying to copy Jim Carrey's Grinch. The Cat in the Hat is literally the polar opposite of the Grinch. Dr Seuss made that crossover with those two just to show how day and night they are.

    9. Milo


      thankfully illumination doesn't have the rights to seuss films anymore, so we don't have to expect another lorax or grinch 2018 in the coming years.

      that said, warner bros. animation has the rights now and they're taking another stab at a cat in the hat movie. i think in a worst-case scenario it should at least be alright.

  19. ...Your reasoning doesn't hold up at all. Remove Link and Ganondorf from The Legend of Zelda because it's not called The Legend of Zelda, Link, and Ganondorf. Remove humans from the Pokémon games because it's not called Pokémon and Humans. Remove every character from Othello who isn't named Othello even though Othello himself is ostensibly not the main character. Do you see how dumb it is to base your entire argument on the title of the franchise? It's not about what the name is, it's what the creators demonstrate and what fans consider to be the central aspects. Eggman is one of the cornerstones of the franchise because he shows up in almost every game, and this is an objective fact, and you not liking this doesn't make that go away. You're literally wrong and there's nothing you can do about it no matter how much you whine about it. Also you'd be singing a different tune if Eggman weren't human. I don't know what your obsession is with making Eggman a furry but it legitimately weirds me out. You just want him gone from the franchise because of his species and I don't get it Also this is dumb so I'm going to tell you to stop talking about this immediately and get the fuck back on topic
  20. Yakuza is the only IP of Sega I see them treating with anything resembling respect. I even like Valkyria Chronicles and they really botched that series in that patented Sega way, by keeping one of the two PSP-only games exclusive in Japan, trying to reboot the series with disastrous results, and then making a fourth game which is literally just the first game all over again with different faces. Yakuza has managed to succeed Shenmue but I don't see Sega replacing Nights or JSR with anything, or coming out with new, unique IPs. They're a pretty boring company, honestly.
