    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    F-Zero, 80s western cartoon opening style. There's actual lyrics.
  2. Whoever designed Special Stage 7 in Plus should be legally disbarred from making video games for life.

      fans make better sonic games than sega

      @SupahBerry But Sega wouldn't have the fans who make better games than them if they hadn't made the games they make better versions of!

      Thank Christ for the giant ring right at the start of Flying Battery. Makes actually retrying the stage significantly less painful.

      Though really all the new special stages are a significant difficulty jump from the originals. It's a shame the endgame payoff is kinda lacking, though funny.

  3. Shoutout to the Mania Special Stages forgetting that collision detection exists if anyone hits a hazard, thereby letting one think they can cruise over small gaps at Mach 3 when actually they can't anyway.

     

     

     

    Mania Special Stages are  as well designed and mechanically sound as a unicycle using a soup can lid as the wheel.

      Strickerx5

      and yet they're still some of the best special stages we've ever had. Right up there with Rush imo.

      ... why did they come back again?

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Not sure I agree with them being some of the best, honestly. Would've preferred Blue Spheres just being the Special Stages with them being accessible from the posts like they are. Makes things less frustrating a stressful.

  4. It's honestly going to be an end of an era when Pat Sajak, Vanna White, Alex Trebek, and Bob Barker pass on.

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Yeah, I can see why since Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy! and Price is Right are still aired in the US and have their fanbase.

      In terms of UK gameshows, it is end of an era because we lost Bruce Forsyth, Jim Bowen and Dale Winton all very recently. A big chunk of memories gone... Some old school ones such as Bob Monkhouse (even though there is an Australian host who does act like him though, Andrew O'Keefe) and Terry Wogan have passed as well. There's only Ben Shephard, Bradley Walsh, Nick Knowles (eh..), Alexander Armstrong, Warwick Davis in terms of hosts with only a couple who have done more than one show and even then gameshows aren't as popular as they used to be.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    No excuse for Marron, but Goku didn't visibly show signs of aging until he met up with everyone at the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai, when he was 19 years old. Could just chalk Goten and Trunks up to acquiring that set of Saiyan genes whereas Gohan inherited more human characteristics, including the biological growth pattern. Same applies to the mature Saiyan bodies though. They remain at their physical peak until their mid to late 70s. Paragus simply crossed that threshold and deteriorated fast.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    I consider its "blandness" as a point in its favor. Metal Gear Solid has always been ridiculously convoluted and, for lack of word, sophisticated, but at the same time it has never strayed away from doing silly and blunt things befitting a video game. The ! is the epitome of that, a quick and flashy reminder that you're not simply watching something or doing non-videogamey stuff, despite it being just a punctuation mark.
  7. -Robin-

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    It's nice to see Paragus as obviously older. No matter the setting for Broly and him, Planet Vegeta's destruction and the death of the Saiyan race is fixed, and so events have to reflect that time-wise. The Broly Z movie took place in the Cell Saga, about 31 years after the planet blew up. This Super movie takes place while Pan is at least one year old, about 15 years later than that, so everyone's older as a result. Nice attention to detail.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    The ! is an iconic series staple anyway, so no matter the bad blood in the background, this is the far better icon to go with.
  9. Glad to see the Special Stages in Plus control the same and are as intelligently designed as the originals were.

     

    ....No wait, I said that wrong. It's shameful to see the Special Stages in Plus control the same and are as intelligently designed as the originals were.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I despise the new special stages. So many special effects that it easily fucks with you and makes it hard to tell where you're going, and the stage itself is nowhere near designed well.

    2. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      Yeah, I think they went with making them hard over making them fun.

    3. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      I've played the new speical stages enough times that I never fail to beat them now. They are well designed. It just requires practice. As I've said before you can beat all the new ones by staying in mach2 speed.

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I only found 1, 2, and 7 to be difficult (7 because of some trick spacing and the stupid fact that the ground is the same color as the pit). The rest I pretty much beat on my first go of them.

      Though yeah, I will say that they weren’t nearly as fun or well designed as the first set.

    5. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Man the special stages in the base game are good. In plus lol they're bad.

    6. KHCast

      KHCast

      Are they pretty down there in terms of special stages throughout the series?

    7. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @KHCast Honestly, I’d still say that they’re a lot better than a majority of the other special stages... but that really isn’t saying much considering how much I hate special stages in general.

  10. It's clear that Classic Knuckles really doesn't want anything to do with Sonic unless he absolutely needs to, so other Classic games from here on could very well sub in Mighty for him, so the setting doesn't always have to return to the Master Emerald or Angel Island to justify Knuckles.

    Ray's harder to justify over Tails though, since Tails has no animosity at all. Wonder how they'd go about subbing Ray in for that, unless they just go with the four as a set.

    1. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      I think Ray's connection to Mighty, and now Team Sonic as a whole, is enough to justify him coming back to help in later adventures. But they could just as easily say he, or any of the others, might not be available for a game. They're all Sonic's friends, but that doesn't mean they're obligated to spend all their time with him.

  11. Multiverse theory dictates there exists a universe where Sonic Mania has Marble Garden Zone, and Encore Mode for Marble Garden Zone uses the sunset backdrop pallet.

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Glad I'm not in that universe. I reaally dislike Marble Garden Zone

  12. ....The open space in the middle of the "O" in the Sonic title logos is slanted, in order to look like Sonic revving up a Spindash.

    omg

      Nope. It's been like that since Sonic 1 in Japan and Europe. (America used a different type face when they made their Sonic 1 logo so the o-space is round in that one).

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Nah, I prefer Cell to stay gone to retain the irony. He was created to be the ultimate life form, one that could never be beaten, and he fanatically believed himself to be so. Now he's the weakest Z Saga villain by a huuuuuuuge margin. It's perfect.
  14. The villain of the new DB movie could be a chihuahua in a party hat stepping on bubble wrap and I'd still watch it if the setup leading into it is good.

  15. Late game Ys VIII music spoiler. No details about the game enclosed. 

     

    Something about this song reminds me of Gamma's stages in Adventure, and Eggman's stages in Adventure 2. Possibly the dancy electronic stuff.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Echo Fighters are characters that have identical speed, height, and weight to the characters they are based on. It's the reason Doctor Mario and Pichu are not Echo Fighters. If Shadow were to be an Echo Fighter, he would have identical mobility stats and size to Sonic.
  17. To those that haven't played Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana yet, go play it, dammit.

     

    To those that have played Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana, dammit why didn't you tell me to play it sooner.

  18. -Robin-

    What game are you currently playing?

    Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. Switch port. I'll be upfront, this is probably my favorite RPG I've ever played. Not necessarily the best RPG I've played, but certainly the one I got really attached to, and one I feel needs to be played by everyone. The combat is very kinetic with the speed of the characters and the utility of the special moves (though with some button niggles (that can be remapped in the options, fair enough)), and it's a blast to just run through enemies, or just run right past them. It's linear for the most part, but with just enough optional content to let you take without it feeling hammered in. But honestly, the characters and story really sell it. It's got wonderful pacing, with all sorts of intrigue, sadness, triumph, and just pure heart to it, and the characters are an absolute delight to know and help out. It's got that Majora's Mask feel to it where you could just complete the story missions and continue on, but you are going to want to help out the people because you want to see them progress, with the rewards just being a bonus. Very highly recommend, now I'm off to find the other 7 Ys games.

    Who put Sonic Unleashed music in my JRPG

     

     

  20. If Goku had just kept it civil, I'm sure Freeza would have stopped and approached things amicably.

      Is this a jab at our current political climate?

      @SenEDDtor Missile Yup it's pretty much a meme at this point

  21. Oh jeez, Plus comes out in twenty days.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      and sega's hardly making any noise about it. sega west anyway, sega in jp showed a 4P multiplayer session for the sonic birthday stream.

      apparently the toaster and the shoe was way more important than the actual game at sega's e3 2018 mania plus "gameplay battle" 😕

  22. People griping about Smash Ultimate somehow being a port because it reuses assets and thus automatically is a negative, are likely the same people praising how good Sonic Mania is, unaware of the irony smashing them in the face with a cattle prod.

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      every smash game reuses fucktons of assets from the last one so i dont get it

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      It's as much of a port as Splatoon 2 is honestly. There's simply no denying that Smash 4 set the basic framework for this game as a lot of actual character assets and stages are simply being brought over with very few changes. It's not really like all the other smash games as most of those main assets were made from the ground up between games (excluding the returning stages of course).

      With that being said though, they're adding a whole lot of shit to this along with a brand new lighting engine so simply calling it a port (or even a deluxe version) is simply wrong. It's a full on sequel or, at least, how much of a sequel you can make when you're working with virtually the same hardware with a relatively small time window between releases.

      I'd give it a sequel title way before things like Fifa XX or CoD.

    3. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Despite the fact that Sonic Mania was heavily criticized by everybody for reusing past stages

    4. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      You're right. It's a port of every Smash game to Switch.

      most of the content is old but ultimately remade

      Pretty much no one was right about this one lol

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Vegeta can't wear armor at the Tenkaichi Budokai, so he went with just the one-piece. The entire Buu conundrum happens right after, in which he was dead for most of it, so he didn't really have an opportunity to slap the armor back on. Rather clever justification for a saga redesign.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    This makes me quite irate.
  25. No Wild Pokemon Battling is exactly what Pokemon Colosseum did, and I struggle to consider what XD did as random encounters, so I'm not concerned as long as the wandering Pokemon trainers pick up the training slack, whether by rebattling or there just being exponentially more of them. I'm just ready for my Kanto Gym Leader remix.
