    Game Grumps

    Here's some more Banjo Kazooie for you Grumps out there!
  2. I completely agree with Nepenthe's post (the one just a page before mine). If the game's good to some, it's just... Good. To some. Sure, Generations isn't a very long game, and its plot is short, but I for one believe it's a very well polished game, and deserves all the love it gets from some fans. But if you don't like the game, you don't like the game. If you do, you do. Overrated is relative, only applicable on not many things. This isn't part of them. Opinions will stay as opinions. We can discuss about it (respectfully or not) all day, but everyone's opinions will remain the same. Not trying to destroy the merit of intelligent debating and formal discussion, but let's try not to get too touchy with stuff. This discussion is being pretty tame otherwise. I'm just saying.
  3. Sonic Generations, in my opinion, is one of the greatest Sonic games of all time, being crowned second place in my list of favorite Sonic games ever. First place goes to S3&K. The level design, soundtrack, speed, gameplay, and overall replay value is absolutely stunning here. The game was everything I hyped it up to be. I wished the game was longer, had a better written plot, and had constant streams of brand-new DLC levels from the Dreamcast and Genesis games and whatnot, but oh well. We got the community making some pretty cool stuff! But, yeah. I don't know why people diss Modern so much. Sonic's overall quality has done nothing but go up ever since SA2. Sure, 06 and some of the later games leave a lot more to be desired, but that's progress. Something that y'know, games need nowadays.
  4. Quick question: how's 8 like? Never had the chance to use it.
  5. Even though people adore Sonic Adventure 2, I doubt one huge screw-up with a port will screw any progress Sonic's made in the past couple years. Like lots of people have said previously here: SEGA should just slow down, think before acting, and just keep on doing what they were doing with Colors and Generations. They won't get completely destroy the hate people have for his franchise, but it'll get a lot more tame, hopefully.
  6. Man, this video is genius. I hope he does more dubs of MLP.
  7. ... Oh boy. Too bad I'm broke and can't get the port right now. I wanna try it out for myself and see if it really is that bad.
  8. ... Wait what? Nergal Jr. is there? I never noticed!
  9. Rouge is an awesome character. I wanna see more development in her as a character later on. She can be a damn interesting one, similarly as to how she was pulled off in Battle, just a lot more complex. Anyways, I kinda like the look Rouge has in Riders and 06. Riders, as she has a sassy, girly, yet very confident and strong 'tude going on. 06 being more of the definitive design. It's pretty much an SA2 Rouge with some more modern, refined tweaks. I like her this way. I don't like Generations Rouge a much, though... She looks too tan. Just me though.
  10. Robin IS there. You just have to look more. It kinda sucks that there's a lot of Adventure Time characters when there could have been more characters that could have been placed there instead, but AT IS their current program. It's a way of marketing themselves, I guess?
  11. ... Wait what? SA2 on iOS? It wouldn't make sense! xD The only way I can see SA2 running properly on mobile devices would be on (EXTREMELY) high-end Android Tablets like the WikiPad and whatnot. And the yet-to-be-released Microsoft Surface. It'd be interesting to see how it runs there, actually. Especially the Pro version. Lawd, portable 3D Sonic on the go... ANYWAY. Since a lot of SEGA games are seeing a lot of PC releases, there could be chances that it'll come out months after, sorta like Dark Souls. (more like a year)
  12. Modern CN is okay, I guess. But it can't be compared with the likes of Billy and Mandy, (love the gigantic Billy with his snot in the left part of the poster xD) PowerPuff Girls,Dexter's Lab, KND, Samurai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Ed, Edd, n Eddy, and Foster's, but Modern CN is good. I freakin' love Adventure Time because of how complex it truly is as a cartoon. Regular Show is hilarious as well. They're the best cartoons of the late 2000s, to be honest. And yes, I agree with some people here: Ben 10 got crappy once the original series ended... God, it got so longwinded. I never bothered watching any more afterwards. I did watch that special episode when Kid Ben meets Teen Ben though. That was cool. Everything else? Meh...
  13. Oh man, I feel cruel. ;_; I'm back for sure now. So sorry for just telling all of you (who remember me anyway lol) that I'm back. Life is very busy lately. Too much to be explained actually. But, anyways, I'm back, and I'm going to make sure that I'll STAY back. It's good to be back in the ol' SSMB.

      Cool. Glad to see you back.

      Thanks, guys. School's just reaaaaaal persistent, is why.

      I'm gonna go see if I can download one of them forum app thingamajiggers so I can post in SSMB more in my Android. I've abused my vacations from the Board far too much!

      You're back just in time for the SA2 shitstorm that's about to happen in a few days

    6. Tatsumaki


      Why am I always here when the shitstorm hits... xD

  14. Hence my earlier example about Harry Potter. Neville had little to no involvement in the plot until the later books. Yet I find him to be a million times deeper than Harry, Ron, and Hermione themselves. Unbalanced writing. The main characters must be filled with detail, have depth, character, emotions. And most important of all, be interesting. It's something I see all the time; books, movies, video games, you name it: the main characters are boring, shallow, and makes you want to hate them, while the supporting characters are actually interesting and badass. I'm not saying, "Screw the supporting characters in Sonic's games, write the main characters better", or vice versa. But if you're going to write the supporting characters well,(when you're actually supposed to, you're not there to write a mess of a shit character, you're here to make the best ones possible) at least make sure that the characters that matter the most are written well, too. Actually, I agree with this. It could work. And everything needs numbers. Even though it's not visible to the human eye on how these things work, there's always some math involved in video games, no matter what. I actually like what you did, but it's true, Knuckles and Tails are too slow. I'd put Tails to a number like 8, and Knuckles, 7.
  15. ... I mean... This one? I think her most common fan nickname is Mjolna, and she already has an ask blog. xD Wow, they're fast. Also, I saw shed.mov a few hours ago (as soon as I woke up, pretty much). Pretty funny, but nowhere near as good as apple.mov or dress.mov. It was a little cruel, and funny at times. But most of the time, it was just a gigantic parody of Cupcakes, which was okay, I guess... I can't say I didn't laugh however. I liked this one, but apple.mov is still the best one. Also, gonna watch the new ep right now. Thanks for embedding it, Celestia!
  16. I agree with you to a certain extent. For example, Knuckles shouldn't even be involved at all in Colors, as the Chaos Emeralds have nothing to do with the plot at all. However, for a character that used to be so important in the series just decline in not only importance, but character quality as well (depending on your definition of quality) is just plain shocking. Especially the fact that the prominent object in almost the entire series are the Chaos Emeralds, so there have been so missed opportunities for Knuckles to shine, doing what he does best. Instead, it just ends up getting squandered.The same could also be mentioned for all the characters in the Sonic series, like Rouge and Big. All characters really need work, but in my opinion, Knuckles needs the most polishing of all because of how they're horrendously writing him nowadays. EDIT: Also, having seen the cutscenes in Colors (I never could play it, I am a sad fan), Tails' scene being mind controlled was seriously bad. I know some may like it, but... Not my cup of tea. Didn't grasp my attention or play with my feelings at all. It just happened.
  17. Also, sorry to just poke in all of a sudden, but has anyone seen in the latest episode that a Thor Pony just randomly popped up in one of the scenes?
  18. I have the same wishes as well. I suppose they can develop all of them at once. But they shouldn't focus too much on the other characters. While I do want all Sonic characters to have some depth, the less important characters shouldn't be more deep than the more important ones themselves. For example, I find Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter a million times better written than Harry Potter himself. As much as I love the books, that's unbalanced writing. I'm cool that they give all the characters some love, but don't give too much love on the others, because then the purpose of the main characters would be moot. Which is pretty much what Tails used to suffer post Heroes, and Knuckles since SA2.
  19. Everyone needs to be developed, as soon as possible. However, I just personally consider Knuckles to be developed above the others because other than he's part of the Classic series, he is an important character. The fact that he's the guardian of the Master Emerald and can sense Chaos Emeralds (if I'm not mistaken) is more than enough to make him at the very least an extremely important character in the Sonic Universe. And to see him get dumbed down to a guy who just derps a lot is not fine with me.
  20. To be honest, before even starting to consider developing even further any other secondary and background Sonic characters, they should focus on Knuckles. Sonic, Tails, and Eggman have their characters neatly pressed and ready. But Knuckles on the other hand is well, a knucklehead. And quite useless at that. Which sucks, since Knuckles is my third favorite character in the series, and when you think about it, is the most poorly developed of the series (minus SA1, but that wasn't much to write home about). That shouldn't happen as he's as much of a main character as Sonic and Tails are. My suggestion? The writers must give some more life and color to the red echidna.Only then we'll see some development on the characters. As for the rest, I think Rouge needs some more love. She's a fantastic character. And Shadow should be a lot more like he was in Free Riders. Oh, and I know this has nothing to do with how he's written, but PLEASE, get rid of the new VA Shadow has. I feel it doesn't help much with his character at all. Maybe I should give him some time. He may be a diamond in the rough, kind of like Griffith was. But I should probably stop, this is about how should Sonic characters should be handled to harness their full potential, not about which VA is better. Chaotix needs some help as well. They're badly written, and they can also be really important characters in Sonic's adventures. Particularly Vector. And... That's it for now. Can't think of anything else.
  21. Well, not sure if any of you even remember me, but... I'm back. School's been getting in the way lately, but I'm now here to post, discuss, and all that good smarticles stuff. I can see that a lot of sweet changes have been done here. Can't wait to start pounding on my keyboard once more. It's great to be back!!!

  22. Digging the Seaside Hill Remix. Also love the Spagonia Remix. Chemical Plant's tech-ie music was great, but the bass just killed it. I couldn't even bother listening through it all because the bass made it all so dull. As for the 3DS ones. Emerald Coast sounds amazing. Tropical Resort is meh. I wonder if the audio quality the 3DS is capable of doing will make it sound better or worse.Time will tell.
  23. Heroes almost disappointed me. Shadow just fucked it all up for me. |:
  24. Ugh, seeing Ni No Kuni makes me want to regret not having a PS3. D:

  25. Wow, this looks great for some simple screenshots. ... Now I'm having a hard time to decide to get a Vita or a 3DS later on. The Vita may be able to get other awesome SEGA games in the future, too. (Hopes for Jet Set Radio)
