  1. Decided to leave SSMB. Partly due to not being all that impassioned about Sonic specifically as a game series anymore and so find it hard to care about making posts about that specific aspect of the franchise, partly due to the realization that what one of my closet friends has been telling me is right despite my reluctance to admit that they are so, that this forum increasingly ain't nice to be around, partly because Tumblr has been taking up more of my attention and is my main hangout nowadays online drawing my attentions away from here so much so that I only really login to PM people I am friends with here.

    So bye. It's been nearly 11 years since I joined (On May 6th actually) and whilst my experience over that time has been up and down and all-around overall and filled with coolness, it's better to bow out now before I become embittered. Thanks peeps. You can catch me on my Tumblr if you wanna hit me up for a chat or whatever or see what I'm up to.

    Over and out!

      Don't blame you. Even I feel this place has gone downhill at times. Might consider leaving too.

    4. shdowhunt60


      I think the chief attraction to SSMB that I've had is that it wasn't the god-damned SEGA Forums. But now with it Sonic news being completely sparse, there's little to talk about in regards to the main series. I can sort of understand the sentiment you're holding.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      It won't be the same without you Verte. Good luck and goodbye.

    6. Dejimon11


      Really that's your reasoning? I'm not trying to come off as rude but let's be real here you said something offensive and were called out but instead of owning up to it your ignoring it. But hey don't let me stop you from making your own decision. Good luck.

      @Dejimon11 Nothing to do with that. Been thinking it the past few weeks.

    9. FriendBot


      Wait what? What's even going on here?

      and to people who think this has something to do with the pssed off thread, this was thought about from what i saw yesterday. BEFORE this happened. ;p

      @DarkLight Can you not? That's not the right way to go about something you disagree with.

      @Vertekins I'm sorry you feel like you don't have any other choice but you have to do what you feel is best for you. Please take care of yourself. 

    17. shdowhunt60


      @Kiah "Can he not" what? Call out someone for leveling a personal attack all the way ignoring her previous activity in the statuses which indicated that she was having a hard time staying on these forums anymore anyways?

      Take care, it won't be the same without you 

    20. Alex2Beta


      Bye, I'll miss seeing you post around here, take care..

    21. gala


      Good luck, and goodbye!

    22. Kiah


      @shdowhunt60 per my explanation, that is not the way to contest someone. If you are going to scrutinize what I say make sure you do it correctly and get your facts straight. This is an unfortunate status update to come upon and telling someone to "shut up" is uncalled for. I never said what Dejimon said couldn't be contested so please don't put words on my mouth. 

      And for everything else you said what does that have to do with what I said?

      You are one of the users I associated with SSMB the most. It really won't be the same without you.

      Oh well, gotta make a Tumblr account then...

    24. Xenos


      That's strange, considering your entire tumblr is still about Sonic, could have fooled me?

    25. Rey Skywalker-Ren

      Rey Skywalker-Ren

      nah it's not that she's not a fan of sonic, it's that she is unhappy with the current direction of sonic

    26. Xenos


      But a website that encompasses all forms of Sonic and not just the hot new thing Sonic Team cooks up in their meth lab isn't a suitable place regardless?

      I could see reasons to leave anyway, it's just that I'm not clear on the total reasoning.

  2. Taking a break from here to consider whether or not I want to stay. Lately perceived a change around here that I don't like.

      Sorry to hear that Verte. Hope you're okay.

    3. DarkLight


      With how things have been going for you, I don't blame you for wanting a break from here. Even though I'll miss you, I only hope the best for you.

    4. Vertekins


      @DarkLight I have been feeling huge frustrations with things on here and in RL that put me into precarious mind states. To the point that avoiding the things thatcause it i the only thing optimal for my moods. Flunctuating health, having to come to terms with my diagnosis and being immensely annoyed with what this place is turning into even though I like it so much has just made me throw my hands into the air, say "fuck it" and go on hiatus. What compounds it is my frustration with the Sonic series.

      I feel more at home on Tumblr than I do here. That's saying something given I've been here nearly 11 years but on Tumblr just over 3.

    5. caseykz


      Get well soon

  3. Looking at an official model comparison between Sonic and Shadow and for some odd reason I'm really quite amused by the fact that Sonic is noticeably fatter than Shadow.

    1. DarkLight


      It's the chill dogs, man. They add pounds. Though given how fast Sonic can run, he'd easily burn the carbs.

    2. Red


      Got a link? I'd like to see this. :P

    One of the funniest things in SLW :D

    1. Forte-Metallix


      Well, that is the logical result of ramming into a wall at the speed of sound.

    2. Milo


      also a good representation of the game's execution

      *booed off the stage*

      Sorry, sorry, but that one was way too easy. I should had known better. :(

    3. WhoWhatMan


      I still like the splat animation from Unleashed Wii where Sonic runs straight into a wall and get all flat

    4. AlphaRuby


      *throws tomatoes at Gabe*

      How come Sonic's face isn't broken beyond repair with all the walls and floors he's ran into face first.

  5. May the force be with you young Prower. I friggin' love the scenarios and poses Uekawa puts into his artwork over the past 2-3 or so years. It's so much more endearing than the rather static and somewhat forced poses the characters used to exhibit.
  6. Raspberry syrup mixed into Sprite is a great drink.

    1. Yoko/葉子


      Glad I'm not the only one who likes to mix things up.

    2. Bowbowis


      I stopped at a place over spring break where they mixed maple syrup with root beer and it was actually pretty good (still not as good as peanut butter and vanilla ice cream though).

  7. Lost World Wii U is mediocre through and through. I can't think of anything that is truly special about it. The game design is filled with potential that is never even remotely lived up to. Parkour is an intriguing gimmick that is never exploited for truly multifaceted level design. The Wisps are the epitome of tacked-on and add nothing of real value to the gameplay. Level design is seriously lacking and a chore to play through with the controls being as finicky as they are. The soundtrack, whilst having a few gems like "Sea Bottom Segue", "Sugar Lane" and the final boss theme, is pretty forgettable for the most part. Most Sonic OST's tend to be very earwormy and memorable. SLW's soundtrack rarely exhibits that quality. The visuals might be vivid and the game may run as smooth as a baby's backside at 60FPS but the backgrounds are seriously lacking in detail and the lighting is...just nothing special compared to what the Hedgehog Engine accomplished. Controls are just....wut. Having a trigger button for running is an asinine decision and the feeling of momentum is completely off. Motion controls for Wisps before the patch made them extremely annoying and led to deaths to the point that I'd avoid Wisp's during my first blind playthrough. Parkour is hard to get to grips with due t finicky controls. This game really needed a tutorial yet never gave it. The writing again has huge issues. Tails is mangled and comes-off as little more than a self-righteous little punk who thinks he's right about everything and is treated as if he's due something, the attempt at a message is undermined through plain bad writing, the Deadly Six are as dull as dishwater and don't get a proper send-off and Amy and Knuckles need not have appeared at all for all the influence they have.
  8. Sonic characters doing selfies isn't really new. Unleashed did it first nearly 8 years ago :3
  9. Whether or not Sonic himself gets "Dramatic" or "proper" development is irrelevant to his worthiness as and entitlement to the role of being the comic's main protagonist - He's due it as the franchise's lead character. Not Sally. Do away with Sonic or shunt him aside and elevate Sally to main protagonist role as well as rename the comic after her is extremely disingenuous and would no doubt result in the comic going belly-up because very few people care about or would be attracted to the comic if it didn't have Sonic's name on the front and/or in the lead role. The fact is, Freedom Fighters and Archie's original characters don't attract most people to the comic. Sonic does. As well as the Sonic name - The comic is nowhere near strong enough on it's own merits to continue existing without them because if you gut those out, the comic has very little to nothing going for it in terms of attractiveness except to a small minority of the readership.

    Still adoring Unleashed's detail even nearly 8 years on. See that structure just beyond the canyon? That's the Shamar Temple of Gaia. Which is only reached at night. If you blink, you'd probably miss it.

    1. TheOcelot


      Still the best looking Sonic game for me. Gorgeous locations.

    2. shdowhunt60


      I think Colors looks better, but it's hard to deny Unleashed's visual appeal. GIA really did that game favors.

    3. Alex2Beta


      The graphics are also pretty kicking.

      The game still looks jaw-dropping to this day.

    4. JezMM


      Always loved this touch and it's a shame they didn't do this for all the stages where the temple is found at the opposite time of day (granted the three night stages end with an arrival AT the temple, albeit only in the DLC acts consisting of cut content from Act 1, in Chun-Nan and Shamar's case).

    5. PickleBrows


      Oh wow! I can't believe I've never noticed that!

    6. Stritix


      I hope we see another Sonic game with this level of detail. It's the best looking Sonic game to date.

    7. Nepenthe


      It's been eight years.

      Eight years.

      I'm dying.

  11. I was in a decent position to get Sceptilite in Shuffle yesterday was in the 9000 rank range (You have to be in the top 12000 in Europe to get it). Signed in to see if I've won...and I ranked in the 17000's getting two Attack Power Up's D:

  12. The Precure series can have uch beautiful BGM. Like this song from DokiDoki! -


  13. Just had some of the nastiest green tea brew ever. Never had a cup so bad. Back to peppermint and super fruit tea for me.

  14. I'm sorry. But try as I might, I can't see one good thing about Sonic X-Treme. It just looks awful through and through and it's ideas sound shit.

    1. Forte-Metallix


      And yet they tried to implement it into Sonic Lost World, just like how they eventually used the concept of Sonic having a human love interest.

      Some ideas are best left buried in the past.

    2. Celestia


      Didn't Sonic Team deny that X-Treme had any influence on LW? I was under the impression it was only SEGA of America PR people who went "sure, why not" when asked about it.

    3. Dejimon11


      I'm sorry but if they flat out said that X-Stream had no influence in lost world just at all they're lying. Also adds more fuel to the Mario Galaxy argument.

  15. It's been 13 years to the day that Sonic X first aired in Japan. Personally, whilst the show had big problems, it still has some awesome bits.

    1. Forte-Metallix


      Sure: The Chaotix, the cruise episode, that bit in the Japanese version where Knuckles follows Eggman's robots into an erotic dance club. Even X has had its moments!

    2. Strickerx5


      3rd best Sonic show honestly.

    3. JezMM


      I still get overwhelmed with nostalgia by certain episodes, namely 1 and 52.  I didn't care for all the filler, and obviously the english version was naff and a half, but I still overall would say I love the show for the rest, even if it didn't reach it's full potential (your tumblr post about how Helen should've been the human star has changed how I look at the series forever lol).

    4. DiamondX



      Knuckles follows Eggman's robots into an erotic dance club.


    5. JezMM


      @Diamond Exactly as it sounds.  It's only a 20 second comedic scene, but of course, was cut entirely in the dub

    6. DiamondX


      do you have a link to the scene?

      It's a pretty typical joke, Japan isn't quite so coddling when it comes to depiction of sex in media aimed at all ages.

    11. Azul


      I wish America wasn't so anal when it came to to these kinds of things.
