  1. I haven't been here in a long time, but I've been getting back into Sonic a bit recently and I have a question. Two games I've never played are Sonic 06 and Sonic Unleashed. I definitely remember all the dislike for 06, but would it be worth trying anyway? How about Unleashed?

      Sonic 06 on consoles is bad so no I don't think it's worth checking out. But someone by the name of ChaosX is working on a PC port (via Unity) and it is some real impressive stuff from what they've shown of it. It also controls MUCH better and brings out how fun Sonic's levels can be underneath the jank. They post development on Twitter and there's even a demo: https://twitter.com/ChaosX2006

      Unleashed is a mixed bag. I love it but it has a lot of things that weigh it down and hold back its accessibility for most people who play it. It's definitely worth a play to see what you think of it though.

      Despite almost being in what could be considered romantic love with Unleashed, I recognize that some of what it does may not be for everyone. It's one of the few Sonic games that feels like the world you inhabit and explore doubles as a character in and of itself. After 12 years it feels like there won't be a game coming out that does it quite like that game did. You can tell so much about a location from not only it's people but it's souveniers and all the different food. It's great.

      It's also, to this day, the most beautiful a Sonic game has ever been in my opinion. I was pretty disappointed when I played Generations and it didn't look like Unleashed like I expected it to at the time. I understand why it didn't a little more now that I'm older but the disappointment still lingers.

      The werehog and your enjoyment varies depending on your tolerance of its gameplay. It's not broken or anything. It's just fairly simple and doesn't demand too much from the moves you acquire. Also the stages can outstay their welcome if you're not like me and don't use the runtime as an excuse to explore and admire the environment. I understand not everyone cares about that to the insane degree I do though. Medal collecting can block your way and force exploration to happen at times too. It can get egregious if you're not careful.

      Daytime stages is basically Generations Modern Sonic only it feels a bit faster and slightly more dangerous. 

      As for Sonic 06, years ago I would have said check it out as a morbid curiosity thing, but nowadays whenever I try to return to it, I get a stage (or even less than that) in and get extremely bored of it and turn it off. The awfulness of that game has been so thoroughly explored by this point and playing as the characters isn't any fun. Once you know what you're going to get, inside and out, for me at least, the game is just soul crushingly boring. Plus, it's tough to look at.

      Thank you both, I appreciate the feedback!

  2. Gone back to the name I originally had when I signed up, which was TwoTailedFox. (I was Agent 82 for awhile, but I just changed my name now).

      Awww, thanks guys!!! :D I was worried no one would remember me!

  3. Tron Uprising. Tron (original) is my favorite movie, but I probably would've never watched it (or Tron Legacy) if it wasn't for Tron Uprising. It's really sad it lasted only one season, it was the best show Disney had in years It's one of the best animated shows I've ever seen.
  4. I haven't been here in awhile! Or played any Sonic games recently D: I need to do that. SA2B and Sonic Colors were my favorite games 5 years ago.

    Halloween

    I don't celebrate Halloween too much, like put up decorations, go to scary events like a haunted house, etc. But I do enjoy carving a pumpkin and dressing up to pass out candy (People come to me to see my costume! I don't have to walk anywhere! How cool is that?!?! Oh yeah, and they come to get candy too ) Dressing up is my most favorite part of Halloween because I love to make my own costumes. 2010 I was Amy Rose, 2013 I went as Quorra from Tron Legacy, 2014 I was the 4th Doctor from Doctor Who. This year? I went as Mike Nesmith from The Monkees! I crocheted the hat, and sewed the buttons and felt on the shirt all myself. We also carved a pumpkin with The Monkees logo on it (Pictures in spoiler tag to take up less space)
  6. Been playing Scooby Doo: Night of 100 Frights recently. I forgot how good that game was :o

  7. A little game I got at McDonald's in 2003 called "Knuckles' Soccer". It's just a LCD game where you play as Knuckles and you have to keep the soccer balls from going into the net. It's cute, and slightly entertaining, but nothing to get excited over. After that it was "Mario and Sonic At The Olympic Games" that I got for Christmas 2009. That's what really got me into the Sonic games. My first official Sonic game that I played was probably Sonic the Hedgehog on Sonic Mega Collection Plus for the PS2, which I got for my birthday in February 2010.
  8. My all time favorite TV show? "Get Smart"(1965-1970) I didn't think I'd like it at first, because I wasn't a fan of spies. But did this show ever change my mind! It's actually really funny. It stars Don Adams as Maxwell Smart (Agent 86), who works as a spy for CONTROL to stop KAOS. He isn't very bright... (think Inspector Gadget, who was voiced by Don Adams). I chose the name "Agent 82" because of this show Next up, another show starring Don Adams, "Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales" (1963-1966) I used to watch this when I was very little (re-runs, of course). I had forgotten about it until I watched Get Smart and felt that Max's voice was familiar (once you hear Adam's voice, it's kinda hard to forget). Tennessee Tuxedo is a penguin who lives at the zoo with his friend Chumley the Walrus. Tennessee always has some big idea, but unfortunately they are usually unsuccessful. The episodes are about 10 minutes long, and each one has a different lesson on how things work (TVs, radios, cameras, etc.) Finally, "Alias Smith and Jones" (1971-1973) The show stars Pete Duel (Hannibal Heyes, alias Joshua Smith) and Ben Murphy (Jedidiah "Kid" Curry, alias Thaddeus Jones) as two outlaws trying to become good. The governor will give them amnesty if they can stay out of trouble. It's a western comedy. I don't like westerns, but I do like this show. Fun fact, I have the same birthday as Pete Duel (Feb 24th) Honorable mentions: ALF (1986-1990), Top Cat (1961-1962), and Doctor Who (4th Doctor, 1974-1981)

  10. Go up to the top of the page. Click on your name, right next to "sign out". A menu will drop down with a few options. Click on "manage ignore prefs". At the top of that page, there will be a little box you can click that says next to it "Ignore all signatures when reading topics and personal messages". Select the box, go to the bottom of the page, and hit "save changes". I've had signatures ignored for years
  11. I'm considering getting a Toshiba laptop, and I was wondering what you all thought of them? Are they good? Bad?

    1. spinny

      Don't waste your money on that shit. All of the Toshiba computers I've owned in the past crash and BSoD every five minutes. I'd advise looking into other manufacturers.

    2. Komodin

      Exactly what Toshiba laptop do you want? My Toshiba Satellite L655 is still rockin' after over three years.

    3. TwoTailedFox

      TwoTailedFox

      Toshiba Satellite C55 A5355. It would mostly be for school, with a few older games here and there. Nothing fancy.

      Last laptop I had was a Tosh Satellite... Best computer i have ever owned...

      this new one is Toshiba Satellite.

      it is the worst laptop I have ever owned.

      Speaker quality is abysmal.

      keyboard is terrible.

      This is a replacement due to a serious hardware fault on the keyboard.

      This laptop suffers from unresponsive shift keys, and today the O key developed a serious fault so it will be going back to the shop middle of next week.

      One of the biggest problems with many Toshiba laptops is that essentially all of their 15.6" laptops are only offered with 1366x768 resolution, and their 17.3" laptops are only offered with 1600x900 resolution.

      These size/resolution combinations make things onscreen large, and such displays tend to be low-tier LCD panels with very poor image quality due to low contrast.

      On the other hand, Toshibas are very durable. I never heard of anyone who owned one and broke...

    6. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      ... it.

      So you have to consider that, if you want a sturdy laptop that can last for various years it's a decent choice, but you'll inevitably have to keep up with the bad screens. Personally, I recommend a Lenovo, Acer or Asus laptop.

      Struggled to pick between this and a HP, wish I'd gone for the HP.

    8. Badnik Mechanic

      Also, given the issues i've seen with people at my college, I would personally avoid Acer & Asus Laptops, build quality tends to be kinda bad.

    9. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      @Hogfather: Only the low end models. The more expensive Acers are pretty good, such as the one I'm typing on right now. I'd still say Lenovo is the best bet regardless.

    10. TwoTailedFox

      TwoTailedFox

      My current Compaq has a 15.6" screen 1366 x 768 resolution (as does the laptop I'm looking at), so the screen isn't an issue for me.

    11. TwoTailedFox

      TwoTailedFox

      I looked at Lenovo. They seemed pretty good, but they also seemed more for business, and I didn't like how they all had integrated graphics cards.

      I'll definitely avoid Acer. I had one about 4 years ago and one day the wireless just stopped working. Took it back and ended up getting my current laptop.

    12. TwoTailedFox

      TwoTailedFox

      At least, all the Lenovos I looked at had integrated graphics cards.

  12. I'm going to be honest: Tron 2.0 is one the best games I've ever played. Very underrated game. Everyone needs to try this game at least once, even if you don't like the Tron movies. Yeah, it has flaws, but it's still pretty good. It also has one of the best sound tracks I've ever heard. There's something about the music that's mysterious and kind of creepy. In fact, the whole game is pretty creepy. Not much information on where Kevin Flynn is, other than an email about him wanting to chat with Alan sometime. And the creepiness is why I love the game! Let's start off with this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYCHRgPn_58 This is the music played over the main menu of the game. It's got a certain mystery about it that's really hard to describe. It's kind of quiet. It starts out slow, gets faster as it goes along, and then suddenly slows down again towards the end. It kind of makes you a bit curious of what will happen in the game. There are also tracks like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgsHGxYdiq0 This music helps with giving the deserted feel of the level (the level takes place on an old computer, hence the title "Antiquated"). You might even say the music is a bit haunting, with the "ah"s and the organ-like music playing, and all those electronic beeps. But you find out the computer isn't entirely empty. For when you're least expecting it, you're hit by an enemy program and something like this starts playing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntxTfnQxIlI And you panic! The sudden change in tempo. The crashing of the electronic sounds. Who or what hit you? Where are they? Darn this first person camera! Can't see anything! Then you really start to worry. Do you have enough health? Guess not! Derezzed! Back to the last save point. Wait, what do you mean my last save point was on the previous level...? D: And finally, I want to mention this track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKt4ZykjaGg I love the electronic sound. It's so cool. (Hope this isn't too long and rambly, but I had a lot of fun writing it!)
  13. Um, well, it's isometric, like the original games. That's good, wasn't overly thrilled with the complete 3D thing of RCT3 (though I did like the coaster cam ). ... I'm sorry, that's the only positive thing I have to say about this
  14. I have a LG900G. It looks kinda like a Blackberry. It's a pay as you go phone, but it has a camera, full keyboard, mp3 player, and the ability for apps and web (which I never use because it costs minutes). It's not as powerful as a Blackberry, but it does everything I want it to do (make calls and texts, take pictures), so I don't complain
