    Guys... this is the greatest hat ever...



  2. This is incredible.

    If you visit the UK Sega Store.

    It installs a cookie onto your browser which bans you from accessing the US Sega website.

    Confirmed on Chrome.

      Works fine for me. 

      Edit: Oh, wait, I misread that. Nope, locks me out, lol.

  3. Another prophecy of mine comes true.



  4. So you know that Sonic tweet. 

    If you add all the numbers you get 666.

    Well... that does actually reference an old Sonic game...

      So Adventure 1 Sonic is Satan.

      That must mean Classic Sonic is "GOD"

  5. Sega are dropping secret clues again.

      Wait until the 11th November and most likely it'll be nothing or something as silly as that toaster.

      Been a while there'd be a post like this in the first place. But I'm not sure there's much in a bland looking racing game that you could be so cryptic about, if this is what those numbers are related to.

    9. TheOcelot
    10. Ferno


      After the big annoying scavenger hunts in 2015-2016, im over any more of that stuff.

    11. Blueknight V2.0

      Well this could be looked at in a few ways.

      1. Possible days for Announcements.

      The only way this could be a possibility is start with the ones. The 1's could either mean November 1st or January 11th. The 2's can only be made into one day and that would be February 22nd (now I can't find anything happening on this date other than the release of HTTYD3, but I doubt the Sonic film trailer will release). As the 3's can't be done this way.

      2. Time Measurements

      Now this one is unlikely as it could mean 1 hour and 11 minutes, 2 hours and 22 minutes, or 3 hours and 33 minutes. But this one is the least likely. Or

      3. Add the numbers

      This one could be likely. If you add the 1's you get 3, add the 2's you get 6, add the 3's you get 9. all of which are multiples of 3. But add all 3-sums together, 3+6+9=18. This could mean that there will be an announcement on the 18th or there will be an announcement in 18-days. Now if you count today and use the 18-days from now theory, that returns to November 1st as in possibility number 1. Which is the day after Halloween.

      So my conclusion is November 1st is when we'll get something regarding Sonic. Not sure what it could be though. If it's the film, Team Sonic Racing, Boom Season 3 who knows.

  6. Today is my birthday.

    SSMB is being mean and won't include me in the birthday list for some reason.



    1. PaulyBFromDa303


      You're too special to be in the birthday list. It's the birthday of birthdays. It is 10-10 after all. A perfect 10

      Anyway, happy birfamaday bud!

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Well at the least hope you'll accept a random passing Happy Birthday!

    3. Zaysho


      Seems your birthday isn't listed on your profile, wonder if we have that glitch again? I can re-add it on my end if you want.

      edit: added, let one of us know if you want the year too. Happy birthday!

    4. Kiah


      I had said in your other status about this that I would try to fix it for you. Guess I was waiting for some confirmation and specifics like if you wanted the year of your birthdate added but I heard nothing from you regarding my inquiry. Otherwise I would of just gone on and did it. 

    5. Big Panda

      @Kiah @Zaysho 

      Yeah I saw. Wasn't ignoring it just had a bit of a funny day *see staff absence thread for reasons why* 

      Thanks for the assistance.

  7. Sigh... my birthday never shows up on SSMB.

    Oh well.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Well, Happy Birthday to you anyway.

    2. Kiah


      Please don’t tell me that glitch is back...Assuming it’s the same issue I can try to put it in for you if you like. 

    3. Misty Milo

      Misty Milo

      happy birthday!

      Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day!

  8. Would like to take this time to remind you that Sonic nearly looked like this...


    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Those designs will look merciful after we get to see what Sonic will look like in the movie. You know it.

  9. My depression is getting worse. Really don't feel ok at the moment.

    1. E-122-Psi


      I get bouts of that at times as well. There's not much to do about it, as events go by, moods will change and this bad turn will hopefully soon pass.

      Is there anything specifically on your mind causing it?

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Lots of bad stuff has happened this year.

      Had it since Easter and it's not getting any better. Right now I just keep feeling like I'm a total failure that's let eveybody down and nobody would give a shit if I wasn't here.

    3. E-122-Psi


      I get the feeling of failure as well. I'm certain people do care about you though, and it only better amounts your life to keep trying in spite of hard times.

    4. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Hey man, want to say I appreciate you. When I was at a low point, I watched a good few of your reviews (The Sonic Generations one comes to mind) and it perked me up. It gave me hope that I'd get that one day and be as awe struck as you were. Why would I have given you fan art if I didn't appreciate you? Pour yourself into your documentary. Think how awesome it'll turn out. Do it for yourself, to prove to yourself you can do it. Come on man, you can do it.

    5. captobvious42


      I've been feeling that way for some time too, especially the total failure bit with a touch of feeling VERY mortal. I'm not sure why exactly, though it has been a long summer.

      I honestly do feel that people would care if I wasn't around, but I'm also feeling very world-weary and frankly exhausted. And not feeling motivated to do anything as a result.

      I have been considering seeing about seeing a counselor about it. The place where I work has one and so does the college I'm at. It helps sometimes; at the very least it gets things off my chest and maybe even help figure out what I should be doing.

      @The Tenth Doctor 

      Whilst I appreciate the kind words.

      I really am at the absolute end of my limit now. I was betrayed by someone close, endured a death & was too afraid to say goodbye, been constantly in and out of hospital for injuries as well as a shit ton of other stuff.

      Been trying to find someone to talk to for months now, it's as if people just take one look at me and run, in fact when I look in the mirror now I don't see myself anymore, just a monster.

      Parents can't take my mood anymore either, it's my birthday next week and I've actually begged them not to do anything just because I know I won't be able to deal with celebrating the fact.

    7. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      I've seen a lot of that happen to you, your right, its not been easy or fair. But believe me when I say that you are not alone. I know my friend sent you a message on FB and he's been in a dark place himself for a long while. He may not be the best conversationist but trust me, he gets it. He's really concerned for you, always saying to me he wants to help. He'll hear you out and he's a person that will never run away from you.

  10. The Venom movie can now advertise itself as being "not as bad as Fantastic 4!"

    1. MightyRay


      A trainwreck you can enjoy! Thanks Tom Hardy!

  11. Venom is apparently... not a very good film.

      It's like they put a review embargo up because they knew. But they wouldn't do such a horrible, dishonest thing such as that would they?

    4. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      It's apparently not a bad film.

      Just not very good.


      Seen two people describe it as a 2000's era super hero movie which has all the problems of a 2000s era hero movie.

    5. KHCast


      “...not a very good film” is pretty misleading then since that makes it come off like it’s a bad movie.

    6. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Venom: The same mediocre substance that plagued audiences since back in Spider-Man 3.


      And poisoned by the same same executive problems too.

    7. Adamabba


      Not saying that it isnt actually bad after all but Ive heard that Lady Gaga fans are posting fake bad reviews for Venom to garner more attention for her movie that's opening on the same day

    8. Ferno



      It's apparently not a bad film.

      Just not very good.

      "Venom's had it rough the past couple of years-"

    9. Wraith


      How does "not a very good film" mean it's a bad film instead of exactly what it says? What's misleading about that?

    10. KHCast


      “This cake it’s...not a very good cake”

      ”this sonic game is apparently...not a very good game”

      cause my first instinct when phrased like that is definitely optimistic.

      side note, why didn’t you just quote me? 

    11. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      All that Hog's trying to say is that it's not the worst, but it could be a lot better.


      "Not good. Not bad, but not good."

  12. I am currently making a documentary about Sonic, I have managed to find a way to include this footage into it...

    I am happy.


  13. Ladies and Gentlemen... We have a new meme...

    Jackson Sonic. (See the replies)


  14. (tweet)

    Why Sonic 1 has no voice acting...


  15. Actually... the idea of a PG13 Deadpool isn't a bad one.

    1. Lord-Dreamerz


      Sounds like a pretty bad idea to me. Deadpool being a super hero line for adults is one of it's main points I'd say. Without the crazy violence, adult humor and questionable dark story telling I can't imagine there being enough of a point in doing Deadpool at all. Not all hero franchises are suited for PG-13.

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Think of it this way.

      Terminator movies gradually became more PG as time went on. A lot of people have criticised them for being too goofy and for kids.

      Same with Robocop 1's TV cut. And Die Hard's old 90s TV cut.

      Scenes got cut, even some lines dubbed. 

      Now studios started making more PG movies for their R rated franchises because that's where the money was.

      Whilst R movies are coming back, their box office is still lower than a PG.

      So make the movie for its target market. Being an R rated audience.

      But then later release a PG cut for the box office.

      Depending on the movie. People are going to know if the movie was originally aimed at an R or PG. So they're going to see whatever version accordingly, and even if we go down the road of canon and fan lore. The intended version is always going to be seen as the true version.

    3. Wraith


      I honestly don't think it'll end up hurting much. If there's an audience for it with the gore turned down I don't see the issue

    4. Teoskaven


      Deadpool 2 though prooved again a point by grossing 7 times its budget with Infinity War being close to its release. If anything, it says it's perfectly fine despite being an R rated movie, while if it was reduced to PG13 (and i mean with Disney's standards for PG13) it would lose part of its identity, having to compensate with the stuff that made Deadpool annoying in the comics on the long run, and make money only because of the Big Bang Theory/Rick and Morty crowd. Do we really want that?

    5. MightyRay


      My Dad had a lot of trouble sitting through the first Deadpool movie mainly cause of the gore. So a PG-13 (Which I'd imagine would just be a M out in Aussieland) rated Deadpool 2 with the craziness toned down would probably get him interested in giving it a go. 

    6. Polkadi~☆


      Oh, MightyRay, your dad will clearly not like Deadpool 2 then. Although the gore is rather comical in it's presentation, you have things like Deadpool being torn in half. And fixing his snapped neck. And sticking a gunshot hole in his hand through a gun.

      Not to mention a particular scene that subverts your expectations...

    7. Lord-Dreamerz


      Yeah one of Deadpool's main points is the crazy comical gore... without that it just isn't Deadpool. Also Deadpool movies have no problem making a lot of money as it is, so there is literally no point in it becoming a family film just to appeal to people who already have more then enough non-adult content to enjoy. Not everything needs to be for everybody nor does it need all the money it can possible make in order to be counted as a success.. It's perfectly fine and good for things to be made for more niche customers.

    8. MightyRay


      @Polkadi~♪ I know, hence why I saw it by myself. He had no interest in seeing 2 because of the original. He would have been happy to seen it if it wasn't as over the top as the first one.

  16. The Sonic Toasters are shipping

    1. Patticus


      Who are they shipping?

      Blue Blood

      Stop trying to stroke your ego by flaunting your intel and just say who the leaked character is. Either that, or just stop harping on.

    2. Jack-ted


      If it's a "leak" and in the public demo, you are definitely allowed to say who it is...
