  1. if your first instinct upon hearing about a tragedy is to defend some racist youtuber then you maybe need to re-evaluate some shit!!!

      if your first instinct upon hearing about a tragedy is to take the shooter's words to heart and point the blame at someone completely unrelated just to further your agenda of how you feel about that person, maybe you're just not nice

      @Blue Blood it's related to the shooting in New Zealand. Apparently the shooter said "subscribe to Pewdiepie" on stream before shooting up the mosque.

      After this a lot of people went to call him out cuz he "instigated" it (even though it wouldn't matter if he watched PDP or not), the others got very defensive for him, to the point that saying "PDP should chill a bit with meme culture, cuz he does have an influence on people" with stupid responses and without any sort of rationale.

      Christ. Whether the gunman said that or not, I can't believe it's actually a point of discussion. Why is anyone even paying attention to such a ridiculous comment by a gunman? PDP, idiot that he is, should be left out of this.

      ...whatthefuck. I’m fucking astounded that this actually happened, and people’s reactions are to jump to blame an unrelated YouTuber, and avoid holding the actual shooter at full accountability. Fucking hell people 

    6. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      It's not just that. ResetEra are also indirectly blaming THQ Nordic of all things because the shooter posted the plan and manifesto or w/e the fuck on 8chan. 

      Like, yeah, the PR part of the company are idiotic, but saying something like "THQN are guilty" is like saying I'm guilty for some stranger's death because I was selling clothes at the drug store the victim visited. There's no correlation other than the place both things visited at some point in time

      nobody calling out pewdiepie is trying to distract from or diminish the actions of the actual shooter. but the guy did not just wake up one day and randomly decide to commit a terrorist act. the situation is bigger than a single person, and we need to understand how people get to this point to properly deal with it. and as stupid as it sounds, we do in fact live in a hellworld where a scumbag can shout support for a youtuber with a history of antisemetic "jokes" and who follows a bunch of alt-right "intellectuals" on twitter before ending dozens of innocent lives, and we need to actually face the truth of that.

      “The guy didn’t just wake up one day” pretty sure he didn’t become a racist white supremacist lune just because PDP, and I doubt PDP was the fuse that instigated the act of killing. Guy would have likely done this regardless or used some other fucktard well known bigot. Pew’s not fucking Trump who genuinely inspires bigotry daily in people due to his own vocal hatred of certain groups. So I reiterate that it’s fucking stupid to try and lay these peoples deaths on PDP’s shoulders as if it’s his fault

      Sonic. Wildfire. was. cool. sounding. af.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      If the Wildfire name hadn't have been changed, what could Black Knight have been called? They obviously had decided upon a naming convention when they named the sequel, so I doubt it would have been called "Sonic and the Black Knight" otherwise. 

      Also, people have long speculated that the name was changed because of potential copyright infringement with the name Wildfire also being used for a TV show. But I somewhat doubt how much water that holds. "Sonic and the Secret Rings" does a much better job of explaining the storybook premise of the game.

      ... I kinda miss the wild ideas Sonic games used to have. The Storybook series were still interesting as their own premises. A shame that they went from bad to worse to dead so quickly.

      I screamed like a girl when the guy playing on Treehouse got a Moon and the level actually continued. No booting back to the hub or level select or anything like that, straight back into the action much like Banjo-Kazooie.

      Now give me interconnected worlds and I'll buy a Switch just for this one game.

  12. Everyone is really overthinking this. It's their big anniversary title so they're doing the trope where all the past villains team up (in this case under a new villain). It sounds like a recipe for a fun time to me.
  13. It's obviously pandering to fanboys and it's fucking working on me im quite excited

  14. He was also like...dead. I think I'm on team "he's from the past/another timeline" or something.

  18. i still think a huge misstep in generations was not making the new version of "sonic boom" the theme song of the game

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      No way. The only choices they had for a theme tune was the original and something new entirely. Using any other track wouldn't work because they are so specifically themes for individual games. They don't represent the series as a whole. 

      Although the Jun's random guitar and S4-esque dying cat mash up wasn't great either...

       

    2. A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      @Blue Blood I see what you mean, but I was so disappointed by the actual theme that I can't help but feel like the "original Sonic theme song" would've been the best choice

    3. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      at the very least shoulda been the final boss theme

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      But Sonic Boom was never the original theme song. It was the localised theme for an (at the time) obscure entry. I'd argue that even something like Live and Learn is more iconic and deserving (but still totally, 100% wrong).

    5. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      I think the song "Sonic Youth" kinda fit as well. I mean, it was being written and finished about that time and references a lot of Sonic music, while tipping the hat to fans.

       

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I personally think the Final Boss music was perfect. It had very intense lyrics

      I do have to wonder whose job it was to bring every actor into the studio and hand them each the same index card to read

    8. A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      @Blue Blood I think "Sonic Boom" works simply on the level that it's a celebration of what Sonic is, and it's possibly the oldest song with lyrics to be found in the series. I like "Live and Learn" as much as the next guy, but I can't make an argument for it being a better theme song aside from "it's good." Like, at the very least, you could say "Open Your Heart" would be better simply because it's the series' first butt rock theme

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's still the theme song for CD though, and only the American version at that. Live and Learn absolutely doesn't work for Generations, but it's more iconic and recognisable on the whole. Basically, I'm saying that Live and Learn would have been the best choice, and it still would have been crap. It's the original theme, or an original theme.

    10. A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      A Match in Oil Ocean Zone

      @Blue Blood I gotcha. Maybe if they had been less afraid of a new cheesy theme song I would have been more satisfied. Because as much as I like to laugh at them, they really were an enjoyable part of each new game for me. Forces doesn't have my hopes up in that regard

    11. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Oh really? I think the Forces theme sounds great so far. I'm looking forward to hearing the full version without lyrics and a placeholder lead instrument.

    12. JezMM

      JezMM

      I can agree with the logic both for and against Sonic Boom.  Sonic Youth does work surprisingly well though.

       

      In my head, if I had to assign "a vocal theme" to every game, I feel City Escape Act 1 ends up being the most memorable and iconic that Generations DID provide us.

      But is silver sonic a sonic?

  23. I think if all the 90s have to offer are more violent cartoons in exchange for lack of "LG t tights" they're pretty objectively worse than the present. I will concede that the past year has been tense socially, but that's largely because half the country rallied around a sexual predator. I don't know what this has to do with JonTron spewing garbage either way.

      Like a small boat
      On the ocean
      Sending big waves
      Into motion
      Like how a single word
      Can make a heart open
      I might only have one match
      But I can make an explosion
      And all those things I didn't say
      Wrecking balls inside my brain
      I will scream them loud tonight
      Can you hear my voice this time?
      This is my fight song
      Take back my life song
      Prove I'm alright song
      My power's turned on
      Starting right now I'll be strong
      I'll play my fight song
      And I don't really care if nobody else believes
      'Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me
