  1. Who's the imposter??

      For a moment I was expecting "Excuuuse me princess" or "Gee, sure is boring around here"

  2. Poop. Playing Crash 4, I was focusing on collecting the Retro Tapes which require collecting without dying. I was playing Food Run and somehow got the tape and even went further but died in the home stretch. I could've got the Perfect Relic!? >.<

    I only have...4 at the moment, I think? Perfect Relics, I mean.

    1. Jack-al


      I don't find any fun in trying to get perfect stuff, but I understand people who do. As post game, I'm trying to unlock as many skins and flashback levels as possible plus other secrets. But that's where it ends for me, I don't want to ruin my experience.

  3. I completed a minute of 3D animation so far. It's not cutting edge or anything but any feedback would be most helpful.


  4. Anyone here remember Hey Arnold?

    I never knew about it's origins or reason for it's cancellation until now.


  5. Hmm, is this Nintendo's take on Dreams?

    As amazing as Dreams is, it does have a steep learning curve. I'm intrigued by this Game Builder.

      I honestly want a new Wario Ware DIY, I thought that was pretty fun. They could add more features to it to allow more options for how to make your microgames.

      So this is how we're gonna get a new F-Zero game.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Neat idea, but it doesn't feel particularly good that Nintendo suddenly make a Dreams like title, not very long after they decided to throw up a massive shitstorm over people making Nintendo related creations on Dreams.

  6. I think I remember seeing an earlier version of this fan game, if I recall correctly, the levels have been streamlined considerably and it still looks very high quality and cinematic.

    I usually hate to criticise such a passionate fan project. I just noticed some things that felt off like the calm music in the first level, it made me think it was the hub world which it wasn't.

    Shadow's random flying section through a desert seemed to last to long and was rather uneventful, also couldn't really tell if it was possible to lose. No health bar or anything.

    I enjoy the White Jungle music as much as the next person but SA2s stage soundtrack designed with a specific genre for each character. Because of that, hearing the White Jungle theme play in a Sonic level felt a little jarring to me.

    In Shadow's first action stage, the lighting makes it hard to tell if he was jumping over bottomless pits or not.

    That's all the strange stuff I noticed at least. It's still an amazing looking game to me.

      Isn't this the game that was basically copyright infringement via donation money?

  7. What the??


    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      this is cursed lol

    2. DanJ86


      You think that is cursed? Then wait till you see this.


  8. That's a shame. It starts showing these MK8 mods with Sonic, complete with Ryan Drummond voice. Then they move on to Tails and Shadow but they still have Mario's voice. They still look neat though.

    1. Cuz


      Just stick Cappy on them and it all checks out. 🙃

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Even Sonic's voice feels tacky and poorly edited, the clips sound too loud on top of the obviously speed up on "letsblastthroughwithsonicspeed!". 

      It sounds more like it was edited into the video and not part of the game itself-- an issue I tend to have on several ametuar voice mods for Smash

  9. Silly fandom. A new Sonic game had already come out very recently.


  10. Wait wait wait!

    It's pronounced Hunter Hunter??

    Huh. Live and learn.

  11. I totally forgot that Pokemon Snap came out today. Guess I'll check out some reviews first which I normally never do.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's been reviewing well, in general. Still sounds incredibly unfun to me, but if the critics reflect the regular fan reception here then it's a pretty good game.

  12. It's fun to see what stuff modders are able to come up with.

    1. Strickerx5


      Is it weird that the thing I'm impressed with most in this mod is the simple character select screen? Could just be because I've seen all these character swaps before but not having to go out of the entire game to switch between them is great.

      Though, I've said it before and I'll keep saying it, this shit is why I think one of the worst moves Sega could ever make with a new game is limiting it to console. The modding community is unreal.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I read the as "if Gens had Mulit--player".  But I ain't dissappointed with this. I even like how they let you switch voices

    3. NegaMix


      @Strickerx5 Unfortunately, the character select screen in that video is just a custom UI made by the channel, specifically for the video. The video itself is just a compilation of multiple different mods made to look like you can select characters.

  13. That's a big oof from me.

    I thought I'd watch a video about a person who 100% completed Balan Wonderworld and read the novel too.

    I noticed the themes of balance and how it is even in the name, Balan. What I failed to notice is that it continued with the much more obvious name of the antagonist, Lance.


    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      ...I thought his name was supposed to be a play on Lance Armstrong

  14. Damn. As a fan of Wallace & Gromit as well as a Yorkshireman myself, I didn't know about the issues Aardman Animation and DreamWorks had when they formed those movie deals.

    That time a studio argued Wallace and Gromit was too British - Fact Fiend

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Yup, Dreamworks’ demands were fucking ridiculous too. Imagining wanting to replace Peter Sallis with a random American actor.

    2. Rabbitearsblog


      I heard about the issues that Aardman Animations had with Dreamworks. No wonder they cut ties with them.

    3. The Master

      The Master

      I read the novel going over the history if the company and everyone just seemed to want to screw them over. Stuff Dreamworks.

    4. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      It's the old fashioned large company not understanding the culture of another country that has happened time and time again. Wallace and Gromit has a vibe that is hard to change with the very English idea of a man and his dog who wants to sit down and have some tea (the only other adaptation that can see this work faithfully would be French), even The Simpsons parody of them were still English. Not everything can be adapted towards another culture easily but then again it was during the time when US remakes and adaptation of things was the "in thing". The result of Dreamworks having complete control probably would have been just like Inspector Gadget (bumbling man with his smart dog) as it is their only animated comparison. The Magic Roundabout suffered from this fate (it was originally French but was very popular in the UK) and that was really changed for its US release.

      Think it was Flushed Away that really cause them to cut ties and considering the end result of that film...

  15. I finished watching Matt's Whu Happun? For Balan Wonderworld.  It was surprising how much of what he said was stuff I already knew but that'll be because it was on my radar and I was seriously considering buying it. (I never did.)

    He still had new info, something surprising about the CG cut-scenes for example. I always enjoy Matts presentation. Plus quoting classic Simpsons. XD

    1. Azure Blue Tori

      Azure Blue Tori

      Wow, much of the game was designed by algorithm? I'd be shocked and appalled, but that video is hosted by a site that thinks AI is a good replacement for actual moderation and curators. Machine learning is the future and all that, I guess.

    2. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      I knew I was right to give Matt the benefit of the doubt.

  16. Well, this is different.


  17. Matt has already done a "Wha' Happun'?" for Balan Wonderworld.

    But only his Patreons can watch it at the moment. I can wait, I ain't made of money.

      Didn't think there'd be enough information to explain the situation this early on. I figured it'd take a while for us to get the full scoop, but it looks as though we've plenty to put the pieces together. Welp, "right to a speedy trial" I s'pose.




    3. Dejimon11


      Yeah this feels a bit quick for him given that he waited a while for cyberpunk 

    4. Strickerx5


      I legitimately don't think there's been enough info found for any meaningful video to be made on the game but I'd like to be wrong.

    5. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Here's a free video that you can watch right now with cute art!


    6. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      The problem is this Youtuber jumped the gun for those easy Patreon subscribers. Cyberpunk is perhaps easier since it is from a Polish studio and that people have datamined the game, oh and trailers. Rather similar to Watch Dogs...

      Japanese developers rarely give any development info out and if they do you would have to wait a decade at the earliest for the stories to come out. As an example, we still don't know much about The Last Guardian despite its lengthy development and that the PS3 couldn't cope so it moved to the PS4. The most you might get between then would be a concept art book or a rare interview. Besides a lot of unused stuff comes from datamining (the Sonic community was one of the earliest for this) and I'm not sure if Balan Wonderworld has been datamined (nothing on TCRF).

      We can only assume some logical factors (e.g. was designed as a mobile game that then became a console game, some blame on the Coronavirus impacting development like what happened to Project Cars 3 and a few others, a rushed game due to the final boss flashing and possibly issues between Naka and Square Enix or even Naka, Arzest and Square-Enix). For the game to have a story and not put it in the game does not sound like Square-Enix at all.

    7. azoo


      Agreed with pretty much everything said in the above post.

      I feel like I already know how the video is gonna go.. some classic reactionary stuff over Naka and Oshima's past with Sonic and all that, paralells to 06, whatever kinda junk. Nothing actually notable or contributing new info to the table, probably just an excuse to point fingers and dogpile again.

    8. Wraith


      Doing "Whuh happened" on new games completely defeats the purpose to me. It's nearly impossible to answer the question of what happened to Balan Wonderworld at this juncture.

      We needed to explore the subject for a couple of years, but almost every gaming youtuber is taking shots at it early since nothing else is coming out this year.

    9. Milo


      I dunno. From my experience, I wouldn't say the What Happened series get off on laying the blame on thick on the (perceived) responsible parties and/or putting scapegoats on extreme blast, when discussing people/events/actions that controlled or interfered with game development. There's actually some points where Matt McMuscles and co. can be congenial when talking about the issues regarding game development or seeing the reasons behind making certain decisions, even when they end up resulting in bad decisions.

      I do think it's weird they're putting out a video on this subject so soon though. If he was able to get in contact with someone that was actually part of the game's production and has new information to share, then sure. Otherwise, if it's a case where they know as much as everybody else...yeah, this isn't really needed atm.

    10. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      I'm willing to give Matt the benefit of the doubt for now. I like Wah Happun, but I want a good one still. 

      Should be interesting if he actually found some juicy intel. Doesn't seem like the type to just jump on a bandwagon.

    11. DanJ86


      Just as a follow up, a video appeared on my recommendations that claims the game has been data mined in some way. Possibly the demo.


  18. I don't mind Mephiles as a character but creating merch of him made me remember things. Like how his plan made no sense.

    • Why not fuse with past Iblis or future Iblis? Counter point - Since the Mephiles that was free is most likely from the present, he could only fuse with the present Iblis?
    • How'd Mephiles gather the seven Chaos Emeralds?
    • Elise was gonna canonically die when the Egg Carrier crashed and killed her. Counter point - Maybe he didn't have time to do that since Sonic went back in time to stop it? Counter, counter point - But when Silver went Back to the Future, Iblis was still free and doing his thing. Counter, counter, counter point - ...Time travel?
    • Why didn't he kill Sonic to begin with? Counter point - Plot armour?

    Also just realised that Tails took Sonics actual death better than he does with Sonics supposed death.

    1. Diogenes



      Why didn't he kill Sonic to begin with? 

      killing sonic wasn't his goal. his whole plan was to agitate things enough that sonic would have to keep saving elise so she'd grow attached to him, then kill him so she'd cry and release iblis.

    2. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      A smart Mephiles would have just cut onions in Elise's vicinity, clearly.

    3. Snowragnarok


      Well, I can give one thing; he broke Tails.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I'll let you figure out where Mephiles got all the Emeralds from cause I can't fucking tell.


    5. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Mephiles was able to get the chaos emeralds.....because he's able to jump around the timeline freely at will. :U

      Which really just raises more questions on his lack of productivity. 

    6. Soniman


      Does killing Elise or making her cry yield the same result?

    7. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      @SonimanFrom what we've seen heard, there's nothing to suggest that that isn't the case.

    8. PaddyFancy


      Do tears of joy count?

    9. DanJ86


      @Diogenes It would prevent Sonic from time travelling to prevent Elise's death at least. Which apparently still releases Iblis anyway. But...assuming their is no difference, it probably would've been faster to kill Elise?

    10. Diogenes


      the game never gives any kind of explanation but the fact that mephiles sets all this stuff up rather than using his apparently limitless time travel abilities to go and scoop up iblis at any point when it's out of elise implies that there's some difference between release-by-crying and release-by-dying. at least that's the only sensible explanation i've seen for why spacetime doesn't immediately collapse before the game can even happen.

      Me too. Definitely doesn't feel like a typical corporate decision.

  21. I checked out the Japanese script for Sonic Forces. It does have as many differences comparing it to the English unlike other games but I did notice a key line that made it more clear that Eggman's sun dropping plan was targeting only the resistance under the Phantom Rubies control.

    I've seen people believe that Eggman was just as doomed but no, he was gonna be fine.

    Also, I always though Classic Sonic being referred to as from another universe was a localization mistake. But that was in the Jap script too, it seems.

    1. The Master

      The Master

      Thats what I've been saying for ages about his plan but no one believed me! Thank you Japan!

  22. Maybe it's just me but "Eggman's Six Demons" sounds like a better name than the Deadly Six.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Everything sounds more intimidating in a different language. lol

    2. Soniman


      They're not really Eggman's but Six Demons or Demonic Six sounds cooler 

    3. StaticMania


      It doesn't sound better as the name of a group...

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      "Eggman's Six Demons" sounds pretty shit. "The Deadly Six" is kind of alright, but there's plenty of room for improvement.

    5. DanJ86


      I was originally gonna comment on the dialogue itself. It wasn't as corny in the Japanese script. Like Sonic and Tails didn't just point to Eggman and say he bites, they instead yell at him for starting the argument in the first place.

      But it's still not perfect. Sonic still apologizes to Tails for doubting him, but I still didn't see that happen. If Tails said Sonic should leave Eggman's computer to him and Sonic turned him down, that would make it come across as doubting him. At least, I think.

      ...A-Anyway. Lost World.....am I right? *shrug*

  23. Just loitering...


    I'm bored.

  24. It is in my opinion that even what seems like a minor thing is worth discussing and what I've seen, "cancel culture" takes on a wide range of subject matter, the ones being highlighted here are in the fun bracket. Fun equals happiness, escapism and positive mental health. Those matter in my opinion. Somebody that's job it is to pay attention did say that UK and US suicide rates had been getting higher each year since 2015, I think? I can't find the actual numbers but I can believe them. It's not just cartoon characters. Games, Actors, YouTubers, Celebrities, Normal People. I've seen them all get targeted at some point. Why? I don't always know but if they aren't hurting anybody, why must they disappear? If I don't want to see something, I don't watch it. This concept is lost on some people. Maybe they want the media to raise their children because they're too lazy to do it themselves, I dunno... I'd like really horrible people to get punished for being horrible, but I don't know if I've ever seen that happen with cancel culture. Sure, you might hear bad claims about certain people but then they rarely show resources or the full context of an exchange to prove it to be true. As much as I believe myself to be gullible, I don't easily trust ether and would require significant evidence before I'd ever agree that a human life should be ruined. Regarding Space Jam 2 specifically, WB have been mocked thoroughly for their selective cancellation attempt as two weeks ago, characters from A Clockwork Orange were spotted in the background. I've never seen this movie but it seems those characters specifically are literal r@pists while Pepe was an exaggerated cartoon skunk made for comical mischief and laughs.

  25. Okay. I've been given a questionnaire to help determine my positive traits and counter self critical thoughts.

    • What do I like about who I am?
    • What characteristics do I have that are positive?
    • What are some of my achievements?
    • What are some challenges I have overcome?
    • What are some skills or talents that I have?
    • What do others say they like about me?
    • What are some attributes I like in others that I also have in common with?
    • If someone shared my identical characteristics, what would I admire in them?
    • How might someone who cared about me describe me?
    • What do I think are bad qualities? What bad qualities do I not have?

    Jeez, it's way more than I thought it would be and...thinking about the answers is already draining my energy.

    Also, how the hell am I supposed to know what others think about me without asking???

      Well, you seem like a nice, smart, thoughtful, and creative guy to me. So you can list those under "What do others say they like about me?"
