  1. " “I’ve gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump says of one woman. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p***y. You can do anything.”

      The less we focus on the phenomenon and more on the people partially responsible for it, is the instant we fail at any and all forms of rational and helpful discussion imo. That's my experience when it comes to politics, anyways.

      And if people are looking to pick a fight... just walk away, man. Don't even give them a second thought

      @Lucid Dream I believe I covered that when I said:

      Quote

      They're like the radical left in that regard.

      Honestly, all you're doing is convincing me further that neither one of us is going to bother to understand the other, so there's no point whatsoever in engaging with them, trying to make something happen that just won't.

      For the sake of argument, let's say you run into the few - few - Trump supporters who isn't too angry to have a serious debate with someone who doesn't share their views. Even if you do manage to have a nice back-and-forth, it's not like you're actually going to convince them that Trump isn't fit to run a McDonald's, let alone a country. The best outcome you can hope for is you both agree to disagree, and go about your merry ways. But even in that outcome, nothing whatsoever was accomplished and the both of you have wasted your time. So what was the point of even having the debate?

      It's your job to be able to discern those situations. I'm naturally good at reading intentions of others, but it's not too difficult to pick up a book and learn it. Makes me wish I was naturally good at something that was hard to learn. 

      It's never worth ignoring a group of people just because of the percentage that may be as you describe. Selectively ignore. 

    5. Dizcrybe

      Dizcrybe

      Even if the percentage is >80%?

      So let's say I was talking about the KKK and generalized them all as racist assholes that I'm not gonna take seriously or listen to. Is that wrong to do since there's the rare off chance someone might have a civil yet still racist minded discussion with me about their view? 

    8. Dizcrybe

      Dizcrybe

      Yeah, no. I don't need the stress of interacting with people who are mostly just gonna mock and insult me.

      @KHCast knows what's up.

    9. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      Equating Trump supporters to KKK? seriously? 

      That's just rediculous. 

    10. Dizcrybe

      Dizcrybe

      ...do you even know what the mindset of the average Trump supporter is?

    11. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      If so much of the population supports Trump, and are equatable to the KKK, than I'd say America is already in some seriously deep shit. 

    12. Dizcrybe

      Dizcrybe

      That didn't answer my question.

      You seriously don't think that wanting to stop Muslims from coming in because you think they're all terrorists, wanting to stop Mexicans from coming in and deport the ones who are already here (and their children, who were born in America) because you think they're all rapists and drug dealers and murderers, and calling for more aggressive policing in black neighborhoods because you think they're all riddled with crime warrants KKK comparisons?

      Should I remind you that former KKK leader David Duke endorsed Trump (which, by the way, he had no problem with)?

    13. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      None of that is particularly new. Many people are already barred access to, not only America, but most of Europe for simply residing in a Islmaic nation (not even being muslim).  

      What do you think the goal of Brexit was? Why do you think brexit happened, despite the economic backlash that was so obviously going to happen? ~50% of British people stabbed themselves in the back just so that they could stop immigration and deport more immigrants. That's is how hated they are. 

      That's all stuff that happens in "liberal" countries. Most people who supported these policies are just slightly ignorant. I've dealt with them and a lot of them changed their mind. 

      I get Trump supporters are worse, but I can't see them as that much worse. 

    14. Dizcrybe

      Dizcrybe

      I don't see how whether or not it's new, or the fact that the anti-Muslim rhetoric is a thing in other places is relevant.

      Furthermore, most of Trump's supporters aren't just "slightly ignorant"; they actively despise anyone that isn't white and straight. There's a stark difference there.

    15. KHCast

      KHCast

      Quite the apologist here I see

    16. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      How do you know that? How is it apologist to not assume all Trump supporters are racist? 

      Seriously, you can't assume every person who supports someone has to agree with every political view of theirs. 

      Do you think all Brexit supporters were racist? A hefty chunk was, but that doesn't mean I'm going to assume every Brexit supporter is racist. 

      All it is, is one simple question. "why do you support xxx". It's far better than assuming things and being just like them. 

    17. Dizcrybe

      Dizcrybe

      And the usual response to "why do you support Donald Trump?" is "He tells it like it is/he says what's on his mind/etc." In other words, the sexist, racist, xenophobic diatribes he's been known to spout have been in the minds of his supporters for who knows how long. I'd say that assumption is pretty well-founded.

      Furthermore again, pulling the #NotAllTrumpSupporters card is seriously missing the point. If over 90% of Trump supporters are racist, does the last 10% even matter in the grand scheme of things?

    18. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      My point isn't that. 

      My point is that you should respect others. If theres no respect than there's no space for discussion. 

      Just because they don't respect you doesn't mean you have to be a dick to them. In a respectful, calm environment, understanding will increase. In a disrespectful, name calling environment, hate will only grow. 

      You aren't helping the issue by being just as spiteful. You aren't justified by their detestable actions.

    19. Dizcrybe

      Dizcrybe

      Yeah, I'm not gonna respect anyone that doesn't respect me, one.

      Two, in a gathering of Trump supporters, there is no respectful, calm environment. I have seen what these people say, they aren't gonna be all sunshine and roses to me because I approach them like a social worker for children. They foster the disrespectful, name-calling environment. Their entire movement is based on hate. Why should I offer anyone like that my respect?

    20. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Had a big post that got deleted accidentally, but the only reason why people are able to label 90% of Trump supporters as racist is because of the vagueness and all-encompassing nature of statements like "He says it like it is." They only focus on what they want to focus on, and in my experience, if you bring up those points about him, they'll typically shy away from it or try to change the topic to something else. And if they have to acknowledge it, they'll try to cite stuff getting across something along the lines of "the greater good" or something else.

      In terms of the outspoken Internet crowd and other areas where racism is more prevalent, I'm sure it's a very apt description, but in terms of the everyday supporter... KKK tier racist is about as accurate as Hillary supporters are baby-murder-advocates. (What's rediculous is that both sides say that with a straight face, imo. :\)

      For the most part, they aren't even what you'd call bad people. Just stupidly stubborn in how they look at things. Which makes it all the more infuriating given the situation.

    21. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      Supporting Trump doesn't mean that they completely believe in him. Stop being so assumptions and etcetera

      Geez, since when was respect something so hard to give. I'm terrified of Trump and his support, but  I can see why Trumps supporters are stubborn. The people who oppose them are just as rude.

      I'd just like to point out I never actually compared the KKK to trump supporters. That was conjured up by people here. I merely used them as an example to dissect the point being made. I never once actually associated the two. :/

    24. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      My bad, then; I admit, the posts I was trying to address in the shortened version sorta blurred together during my frustration with the deletion. Sorry about that. :S

      If I'm gonna be called rude for not giving someone who clearly will not respect me, has their head too far up their own ass to have an adult conversation with me, and is just gonna call me names like "cuck", "SJW" or "waffles" if I let it slip that I'm black then I'm done trying to get through to you.

      Ironically this entire argument is a great example of what I've been talking about this whole time: You're not actually gonna convince the other guy of anything, so it's not worth it to waste the time trying.

      It's funny because the Status starter brought it up to get a rise out of everyone, but neglected to mention the entire story. Like how they've already decided that if it wins it will get its own tournament and the 9th game will become the 8th game.

    14. Tara

      Tara

      That and I still fail to see the problem here. Maybe I'm just stupid, but really, even if it did get its own spot, all the arguments in this status seem to be "I wanted a certain game to be featured, but it's not so I'm going to take it out on a game that a lot of people enjoy that I don't." But then, maybe that's because I'm not a competitive gamer.

    15. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      I'm pretty sure it's unfinished state is the reason why people are getting annoyed at this push for the game's inclusion. That, and people are tired of seeing MLP everywhere.

    16. Tara

      Tara

      I know this will probably sound biased given my avatar, but "getting tired of seeing ponies everywhere" is kind of a stupid reason to get upset. I see games like Halo, Mass Effect, and the like everywhere, but you don't see me going all, "DEAR GOD IF I HAVE TO SEE ANOTHER HALO GAME." I mean, it's not like anyone's forcing you to watch it... unless they are they, then you can blame them, not the actual material.

    17. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      That's a false equivalence. Halo and Mass Effect have more quieter and insular fanbases than the MLP does. There are very few places I can go on the Internet that I actually like visiting without seeing them or Pony-related culture, so speaking as a person who is not quite into the show as much as others, me saying "I'm tired of seeing ponies" is not stupid.

    18. Celestia

      Celestia

      See, I can understand that to an extent, but what I don't understand is when people act like it's the end of the world.

      I think it's more comparable to Pokemon, really. Now THAT'S a fandom that overlaps with pretty much every other.

    19. Tara

      Tara

      Only from your experience. There's very few places I can go where Halo and Mass Effect aren't brought up somehow. Everywhere I go "Have you played the new Halo game?" or "Have you played the new Mass Effect game?" I just say no, because I'm not into it. And again, how does just seeing do you any sort of harm?

    20. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      I didn't say it was in any way harmful. I'm implying bronies are annoying sometimes.

      This is what happens when your fandom gets into the limelight and blows up. Not everyone who follows it is going to be happy with seeing it everywhere all the time, hence the reaction from people wondering why an unfinished fan game was even brought into the tournament in the first place.

    21. Tara

      Tara

      Well, okay, I can see your point in that regard. Yes, bronies are annoying sometimes. But then, so are the people who continuously obsess non-stop about how much they hate it. I'm, of course, not saying you're like that. I'm just saying that I don't see how being a brony and being annoying is any worse than being anything else and being annoying. I know that's not exactly what you meant, but that's how people tend to act.

      Also, I don't have a proble...

    22. Tara

      Tara

      Lol, cut off. I do ramble a lot =(

      What I was saying was that I don't have a problem with people not liking the show or even not wanting to see it. And yes, I can understand people being upset that an unfinished game is being favored over a more finished game. Like I said earlier, I don't like Fighting is Magic either, but the point of video games is to entertain a mass audience and lots of people seem to enjoy it. To me, complaining about it is sort of like saying...

    23. Tara

      Tara

      Anyway, I'm sorry if I came off the wrong way. I didn't mean to say your being upset wasn't justified. I just don't understand it is all.

    24. Tara

      Tara

      And it gets cut off again. (cont.)

      To me, complaining about it is like saying "OH I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE ARE UNIFIED BY SOMETHING OF WHICH THEY SHARE MUTUAL ENJOYMENT!" I mean, don't like a lot of things, but if it makes people happy, then who am I to say it's wrong? Just my opinion.

    25. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Being wrong for liking MLP doesn't seem to be the argument being made by people, and overall that's a different conversation for another time. However, to deny that brony culture is a tour de force is disingenuous. If bronies are allowed to share their fandom everywhere, even in unrelated settings like a fighting game tournament, others are just as free to rip into how annoying the proliferation of their fanbase is.

    26. Tara

      Tara

      I didn't say they couldn't. I don't see how complaining about it is any better. Also, I wasn't saying people were arguing that liking MLP was "wrong." I was saying that it seems to be an instant source of scorn, but whatever. Like you said, different debate.

      Anyway, that's enough out of me. Sorry again if I may have said anything wrongly.

      Ryannumber1Scarer

      Fun Fact: They did this before when he gave No Man's Sky a negative review, and it had the literal opposite reaction of attracting viewers because they ended up being curious about his thoughts since they were controversial enough to have people be that stupidly salty.

    12. Mando-Whirl-Wind

      Mando-Whirl-Wind

      Honestly, not a fan of Jim, and this isn't good, but his score does reek of his recent bias against Nintendo. Then again look how much he bashed Kid Icarus Uprising as well

    13. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Who cares about the score it's just his opinion at the end of the day. He's not trying to make people feel bad about having the opposite opinion. If it was then I can get the hate but he isn't. People get too sensitive when it comes to something so trivial.

      As for Zelda since when is 7 even bad?

    15. Wraith

      He calls the game good repeatedly in his review and he's not obligated to change his score just so Zelda fans can feel good about the metascore. I don't see bias here.

    19. Ryannumber1Scarer

      Ryannumber1Scarer

      And that's his opinion. For all you know, he likes 2D Zelda more. I'm not going to say it's better (god no), but trying to claim his score/opinion is invalid because he's supposedly got a bias for Nintendo (which amounts to calling out the sheer amount of bullshit that company's been up to) is a bit silly.

    20. Mando-Whirl-Wind

      Mando-Whirl-Wind

      Honestly, I'd respect Jim more if he would be like a number of other reviewers I respect, and choose to give a summary of their impressions and their overall feel of the game rather than an arbitrary number

    21. Ryannumber1Scarer

      Ryannumber1Scarer

      So therefore the multiple paragraphs that he wrote that explained his personal positives and negatives of the game were somehow invalidated by having a number at the end?

      I don't really care about Sterling, but this is just dumb. Reviews are, whether they have a score or not, are opinions. If people are getting this bent out of shape because one reviewer wasn't quite as glowing as everyone else (I don't know what his review actually is, but I can take a wild guess because of the response lol), then maybe they just need to either find ways to actually counter what he says (idk, aren't reactions/responses a thing these days?) or shut up and just think about how they feel about the game themselves.

      Unpopular opinion time:

      The poke'mon anime has always been awful, the fact that very little ever happens and most of it is just filler sucks pretty bad. The fact that Ash never fucking wins any Leagues is the icing on the cake though.

      Thats not really an unpopular opinion so don't worry. As someone who watched the whole thing I can't really disagree more. There's some decent filler, it does get formulaic but I always enjoy when characters go through a new region discovering new mons and such. There is genuine character development to be had and I still don't get how Ash never winning a League is ALWAYS the deciding factor of the quality of his character, he's still a great trainer despite that.

      @Soniman

      Really? What about Ash's character changes? He is static as static gets.

      As for the League thing, my issue resides in the fact that the story follows a loser. He doesn't learn anything from losing, and anything he does learn is forgotten the next time he finds himself in the same situation.

      My ass he's a great trainer, Pikachu must be level 100 by now, how is he still losing battles?

    10. Soniman

      Soniman

      Ash has been steadily developing as a trainer from day one, again no one notices this because i doubt a lot of people watching passed the first seasons and have much info past that. He went from losing his first League in Kanto due to his Charizard not listening to him to conquering the Battle Frontier because he learned to work with said Charizard (character development!) and it helped him take down actual LEGENDARY POKEMON in legitamtie battle. This goes even further in Diamond and Pear...

    11. Soniman

      Soniman

      Diamond and Pearl where he took GREAT care in developing complex battle strategies (which from what I gather, is part of what makes a really god trainer) and nearly winning the Sinnoh League by the skin of his teeth but managing to the down a DARKRAI AND A LATIOS in legitimate battle. ?How is he such a shit trainer again

    12. Soniman

      Soniman

      To say nothing of him gradually carrying himself as a season trainer giving advance to future companions May and Dawn who were starting out on their journey because he knows what they're going through because he already experienced it. Again a sign of character development

      *rant over*

    13. JAiRO

      JAiRO

      @Soniman

      Charizard started listening to him because he made another lady train it, because he's a shit trainer. That's like throwing a poke'mon in the daycare and whipping it out at Level 100 and proclaiming yourself to be the best. Unless Latios has Soul Dew, which I doubt, it's overall stats don't exceed Charizard's. Charizard is base 634, Latios is Base 600, and Darkrai is base 600 as well.

      He sucks dick if he lost to these legendaries. They do...

      don't even deserve the title.

      May and Dawn were both contest runners, so that really doesn't have a lot to do with Ash's area of expertise. But that development never grew from there, he is still helpful, young, innocent Ash.

    16. KHCast

      Erm... I don't know. There is an awful lot of "DODGE IT" in the show too, which is absent from the games.

    18. Soniman

      Soniman

      What are you talking about? Charizard listened to Ash WAY before he let it go. He let Charizard go because he wanted to get stronger, it was what CHARIZARD wanted not Ash, it wasnt because he didn't obey Ash.. And Latios didn't lost to Charizard, it lost to Pikachu. Charizard did defeat an Aticuno though, another legit defeat under Ash's belt I might add.

      Just make it seem like a casual thing, like spending time together as friends. You don't want to alienate her by asking directly for a date right away.

      I had planned to yesterday but never found the time to do so.

      I'm think I'm more worried about the work environment during the aftermath of a declination than I am of declination itself. Would be completely awkward for a bit.

  7. I'm kinda surprised Mania didn't get some kind of post-launch DLC content series. 

    1. Jack out of the comics!
    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      As upsetting as it is, I'm actually not terribly surprised. I would hazard to guess that the keyholders at Sonic Team weren't confident enough in the project to let it extend beyond what we have now. That, along with the stark contrast in promotion compared to Forces post-launch, I think Sega wanted to place their eggs in the Forces basket, expecting it to gain them more revenue, or at least help them break even with the budget they had given that game. You'd better believe that a 4+ year project like Forces had lots of backing behind it, so I think it made sense to Sega to fund extra (cheaply made) content for that game, rather than take what they'd consider a risky move with the smaller Mania project.

      But that's my educated guess.

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Super Sonic is already free in Mania though, so what else could they add?

    4. Sean

      Sean

      Sonic Generations didn't get DLC so it's natural to assume Mania wouldn't, because it would make too much sense for Sega

    5. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Oh, I forgot Generations didn't get anything... ok now I'm mad about that one again

    6. Penny

      Penny

      who needs dlc for good games when we can get dlc for bad ones

    7. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Generations got a pinball dlc

    8. Sean

      Sean

      It was a preorder-only bonus for console users that was locked on the disc. Technically DLC but wasn't what anybody wanted when they asked for Gens DLC

    9. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Mania doesn't need dlc.

    10. Sean

      Sean

      Doesn't need it but it'd be fun to have more returning levels since pretty much everyone agrees that a Mania 2 should downsize the number of returning levels if not have completely original levels entirely.

    11. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Moreso than new levels, I'd love to see the cut act transitions added in as well as a time attack/level select for the special stages (bc hot dang they're so good)

    12. Sean

      Sean

      Honestly I don't get the fuss over the lack of transitions and they wouldn't really affect anything for me if they had been there or not

    13. -Robin-

      -Robin-

      It's the lack of some transitions that's the problem. Either do 100% or 0%, not 55%

    14. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Just a little extra polish. It's the only leg up 3&K has over Sonic Mania as far as I'm concerned; it's kinda weird how some levels have them and then other's don't. It's obviously not crucial, but just a little something I'd love to see amended. 

    15. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      What Indi said.

      The tranistions are important in Mania to explain how Sonic travels from a Sonic 2 zone to a Sonic 3 stage and then to a Sonic CD level. The lack of transitions near the end makes the last few zones more of a chore.

    16. JezMM

      JezMM

      It was the team's first big project so I think they were being cautious, both for money's sake and the sake of the humans making it, which is perfectly fair imo.  While I too would like to see a spot of polish to finish it up, it's great as is.

      And to be honest, I find Forces' DLC to be on par with Generations.  The only substantial piece was there at launch and free and the other two pieces were dumb little extras.  Only 2006, Unleashed and Lost World have ever had any meat to their DLC.

    17. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Didn't Christian and his team's contract end with Sega soon after the game came out on PC? I doubt they'd want to renew it for anything less than a new game at this point.

      Also, Sonic games rarely get substantial DLC in general, especially post release. In fact, over the last decade+ I can only recall 3 games that got anything of the sort; 06, Unleashed, and LW (which was probably more Nintendo's doing than anything).

    18. Sean

      Sean

      Having more transitions would have been alright with me but not to the point where I'd cite it as a bullet point in a list of cons about the game, or something I'd want them to patch in over almost literally anything else I'd rather than add to the game

    19. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Again I do want to emphasize that it's just a little detail I'd like to see added. It was certainly intended to be there in the first place, and I think the Mania Team would be ecstatic to add 'em in. It's nothing major, but it'd be cool and help the flow a little.

      I'm serious about those Special Stages tho. They could be a game all on their own.

    20. KHCast

      KHCast

      It’s not really “on par” when Gens doesn’t have dlc.:/

    21. JezMM

      JezMM

      That's what I mean, to me it doesn't feel like Forces had DLC.  Episode Shadow is the only thing of note and it's BASICALLY in the base game as long as you have an internet connection.  It might be DLC in the purely technical sense but when I think "DLC" I generally think "meaningful, post-launch additional content".

      So in that sense, yeah, I find it to be on par with Generations, because the sanic t-shirt and super sonic DLC are so meaningless they might as well not be there.

    22. Sean

      Sean

      Is Episode Shadow even still accessible now? It's N/A on Forces' steam page.

  8. Ever since playing Skyward Sword, I have been playing other Zelda games with the constant thought of "Holy shit, Groose passed on eons ago." playing in my head.

    1. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      Ever since playing Skyward Sword, I look back at other Zelda games and reaffirm my thoughts of "Yeah, the series really is starting to go downhill =/"

    2. Old dead account

      Old dead account

      ^The arguable best game in the series = Series going downhill? nah

    3. Red Cap

      Red Cap

      @-Mark-

      What? How is the Zelda series going downhill? The gameplay in SS was top notch, in my opinion.

    4. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      I know it's all down to preference, but in my opinion Skyward Swords is light years from being the best game in the series. It's not bad, but it's got far too many flaws to overlook. I know a lot of people feel the same way, with quite a few people calling it the worst 3D Zelda. =/

    5. -Mark-
    6. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      Of course 'worst 3D Zelda' means it's still a good game, just that the series is slipping.

    7. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      Skyward Sword had a paper-thin plot and the world felt empty and devoid of life. The gameplay itself just threw long-ass and poorly-justified diversions in your path at every single step of the way as a means of artificially lengthening itself, and it just got really frustrating.

    8. Red Cap

      Red Cap

      @-Mark-

      ...That's... strange. A ton of people I know have actually said the exact opposite. But eh, opinions.

      I guess I'll dig through the SS topic later.

    9. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      I've had this rant several times before in various topics so won't repeat it all here. D: Skyward Sword's good fun, but good god it can be frustrating at times.

    10. Red Cap

      Red Cap

      Wow you type quick. I guess those are legitimate complaints, but I don't think one or two "bad" games are enough to tell the series is slipping.

    11. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      "Hey, we need item X to get to place Y. Except it's been broken into Z number of pieces and you have to get them first". << Every single step of Skyward Sword ever, in a nutshell.

    12. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      "Hey Link, I know you saved my life earlier and all but I still don't trust you for some reason and want you to prove yourself by spending half an hour collecting shit for me"

    13. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      A couple of them were written with good context. At least the Thunder Dragon was DEAD.

    14. -Robin-

      -Robin-

      I don't think SS is the best Zelda game either. But then again, I've got such an incredible bias for Link to the Past that it's hard for me to put another game above it. XP.

    15. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      Well, IMO they've been getting (very gradually) worse since Wind Waker. The DS games aren't very good. Wind Waker and Minish Cap were the last AAA Zelda titles, IMO.

    16. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      I think I liked SS more than TP because I didn't like TP's gritty realism. TP was probably still a better game though.

    17. Octarine

      Octarine

      ...I came here expecting an actual discussion about Groose. I'm vaguely disappointed.

    18. -Robin-

      -Robin-

      I demand a shrine of Groose be displayed in the next Zelda title. Or a name-drop. Or hell, a descendant. Make him a major player in the legend now, dammit.

    19. Octarine

      Octarine

      Din. Midna. The Gerudo. All of these are red-haired people who could and/or should totally be descended from him.

    20. -Robin-

      -Robin-

      That would be a huge dick move though. Groose reconciled with Link and accepted Zelda's decision, but then fate flips his legacy the bird and makes him the ancestor to the reincarnation of Demise?

      Quality irony though.

    12. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      If the gameplay and level design is on par, of course! Just needs to improve the writing.

      Wouldn't it be just easier to give it a different name though, instead of making a sequel to a 10 year old game? Seems like reputation could (potentially negativelly) affect its sales.

    13. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Does Heroes have a bad reputation outside of the Sonic community?

    14. Soniman

      Soniman

      Doesn't Heroes have a bad reputation everywhere?

    15. Crash
    16. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      From what I've gathered, yes, it holds a generally unfavorable reputation. The problem with making sequels after a long time from the original is that, regardless if its seem positively or negatively, it will be affected. If positive, then hype can make it seem less good. If negative, then less people will be inclined to buy the game.

    17. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I wouldn't say that. It has a bad reputation WITHIN the fandom, but in the general populace? They seem more fond of it.

    18. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      They need to fix the physics which were slippery as fuck in the original game.

    19. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      And make team switching and separate classes more interesting.

    20. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      Also fix up the scale in the bosses. If you jump up the Egg Hawk you'll see the Eggmobile is the same size as Sonic. Egg Emperor is the only one with the correct size.

  10. The regular Eggman boss theme in Mania is the weakest boss theme of the 2D Sonic games, after Sonic Advance's boss theme.

    1. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Even more than Sonic 1's?

      I disagree. I thought it had a lot of energy to it and was really pumping, like, it had sort of a threatening feel to it but was exciting at the same time.

      I do like both boss themes in sonic advance 2 though.

    4. Monkey Destruction Switch

      I wonder what the main hidden palace zone boss theme is called? I gotta give that one some props too for sounding so different yet clownishly psycho.

      Maxtiis

      @Monkey Destruction SwitchI do too, I just love Mania's more. It's my second favorite boss theme after Sonic 3's.

      Sonic Advance 1's boss theme sounded like something from Jaws

      Are we talking about ruby delusions or his second boss theme? If its the second then I can see where your coming from (though I do still enjoy it) but if we're talking about the first me and you are going to be having a serious throwdown here son.

  12. I can understand why people don't like Amy's voice, but I'm indifferent to it. It actually sounds closer to what I think an older, more mature Amy would sound like, if that's the angle SEGA wants to take her now.

    1. AlphaRuby

      AlphaRuby

      TBH, I don't really mind it.

    2. Jix Hedgehog

      How does a squeeky voiced Amy sound more mature than say the Amy from Sonic Adventure *scratches head*

    3. spinny

      spinny

      she's 12 years old for crying out loud

      i want my douillard back

      Disappointed... the rough and tumble Amy from previous games has been reduced to someone who worries about little birdies :(

    8. spinny

      spinny

      Jix got it PERFECTLY.

      Douillard and Ortiz managed to give Amy a tough attitude when she needed it. But Robinson's is so fucking high-pitched and all worrywart it pisses me the fuck off.

      @Jix Hedgehog: Uh what? The Amy from previous games is a complete psycho and always pestering Sonic to marry her. No thanks. I like the Amy who worries about animals better and can have a normal conversation with Sonic for once.

    11. spinny

      spinny

      hmmm let's see

      - destroys a massive stalker robot to free a bird and help him find his family

      - gives Shadow a speech on how there is just as many good people as there are bad in humanity, thus turning him to help Sonic

      - completely leaves finding Sonic on the backburner to help Cream and Big find Chocola and Froggy respectively

      - hunts through a massive, haunted castle upon hearing that Cream has been trapped inside, calls on Shadow for a bit of assistance

      ...

    12. spinny

      spinny

      ...

      - sneaks through Eggman's base to rescue Elise and return her to the castle safely

      shall i go on

    13. Jix Hedgehog

      Jix Hedgehog

      @ sonfan1984 - you really think there won't be a cutscene where Amy is boycrazy over Sonic? :)

    14. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      ok but what have she done that is so tough recently? All those are games that came out over 5-10 years ago.

      Jix: Maybe but it's just so refreshing to see her actually talking to Sonic normally without acting like a complete fangirl

    15. spinny

      spinny

      you have the mission where she helps you out in Generations. And besides, you said "the Amy from previous games is a complete psycho", no time slot.

    16. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      I'm mostly referring to how she was in Free Riders which I think is the worse portrayal of her yet and her new voice actor didn't really help

    17. spinny

      spinny

      Oh yes, I can fully agree there. Amy in Free Riders is her worst portrayal I have /ever/ seen and it just makes me sick to the bone. It simply sounded like you were saying all Amys were like that while they're really not.

    18. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      No, I wasn't talking about every game that she appears in only Free Riders. ^^; Sorry.

  14. The Toy Story Trilogy is the Sonic 1-3&K for Pixar. A Bug's Life is Sonic CD. Monster's Inc. is Sonic Adventure, and Finding Nemo and Sonic Adventure 2, in terms of critical and popular success. The Incredibles is Sonic Heroes, where it isn't seen as being as memorable as the others. Cars is Shadow the Hedgehog, Cars 2 is Sonic 4. Wall-E and Up are Sonic Advance and Sonic Rush. Brave is Sonic Unleashed. And MU is Sonic Colors.

    1. Boomer

      Boomer

      The Incredibles is amazing though.

      And Brave is more like Sonic 06.

      Fuck Brave.

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      I'd say Cars 2 is more like Shadow, and Cars 1 is Heroes if anything.

    3. Mil-O-Lantern

      Mil-O-Lantern

      no, just no

      you can't compare the sonic series to the likes of pixar mang

      also incredibles not as memorable? dafuq? isn't that the /one/ pixar film that many people are practically begging for a sequel to be made to this day?!

    4. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Id kill someone if Wall-E was Advance 3. >:I

    5. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      The Incredibles should never be compared to Sonic Heroes in terms of critical or public reception.

    6. -Robin-

      -Robin-

      This is speaking as someone who prefers the Incredibles above all the other Pixar films.

      In my experience, it's just not as recalled as often as the other films, and when I do hear about it, it's cited as not being particularly outstanding compared to the others. Much like Heroes.

    7. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Cars being Heroes makes sense. Its incredibly popular, but quality wise, it's bleh.

    8. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      I've never heard anyone among my social circle say Incredibles (nor Ratatouille) *wasn't* top-tier Pixar stuff.

    9. Pawn

      Pawn

      ^This.

      @Lego Batman: Brave wasn't up to their normal standards, but it's nowhere near being comparable to '06

    10. gala

      gala

      I can't acgree with Wall-E being Sonic Advance. Wall-E, I thought, was boring

    11. Chooch

      Chooch

      Ratatouille is like that one pretty good one under the cut that most people never noticed and/or don't even talk about aka Sonic Rivals.

    12. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Forget critically dissecting the film properly. Brave merely not being as good as their best stuff obviously means IT IS THE WORST FILM IN HISTORY OMG.

    13. Mil-O-Lantern

      Mil-O-Lantern

      ^ I wouldn't compare Ratatouille to Rivals. I think Sonic 1 GG/Sonic 2 GG would be more accurate.

    14. Nepenthe
    15. Place

      get out the incredibles should never be compared to heroes like ever

      Heh the whole Brave thing is really me just spewing a lot of hyperbole. I say Fuck Brave everytime, it really shouldn't be taken seriously.

    18. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Poe's Law: Some people seriously believe Brave is an irredeemably awful movie simply because the trailers were advertising an adventure movie, so I can't tell the difference at this point.

  15. Who here remembered those old flash games on the Cartoon Network website circa 2000?

    1. Soniman

      I do actually, they aren't still around? That's a shame.

    2. GEO1452

      I dont even think i had internet in the year 2000, or all i had was dial up

    3. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      Those took 90% of my time on the internet back then, really. Dial-up was expensive, so I'd turn on the internet, access the Johnny Bravo game I liked, then turn off the internet and keep playing. It was great.

    4. SuperLink

      @Deaf Guy: That was a fantastic little game. Loved it too.

  16. It's weird to think about, but Aladdin is the only Disney movie with a "Disney Princess" where the princess is neither the lead protagonist, nor the revolving main plot point.

    1. MightyRay

      And yet Jasmine is oddly enough the token POC princess that Disney really likes using.

      Kinda off topic, but why the fuck in the Kingdom Hearts universe is Alice considered a Disney princess?

    5. MightyRay

      MightyRay

      Because reasons?

    6. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      @KHCastWell technically she's a princess of heart which isn't necessarily the same as a disney princess

       

       

       

       

       

      *shot*

    7. KHCast

      KHCast

      But all the other princesses are literal princesses. Even Kairi I'm assuming is a princess since she at least lived in the radiant gardens castle. *mauled by a ak-47*

      Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

    11. Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      @-Robin-And yet somehow, not considered a Princess of Heart. LOL

    12. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      Is Ariel considered a princess of hear-*de-resed*

    13. KHCast

      KHCast

      @Jovahexeon JoranvexeonProbably cause she's playable. *nuked*

      Elsa, Pocahontas, that chick from Atlantis, Anna, Tiana, Merida, Mulan(?), Elizabeth, Ariel, Leia, fucking Minnie,yeah, some of these came out after KH, and Star Wars wasn't Disney at the time, but they could easily at this point add some detail like there being multiple princess of hearts, and Xehanort just needing 7 of them. There's so much better material than Alice. *banned*

      Oh and vanellope 

    17. MightyRay

      @KHCast Kida is her name thank you not that chick from Atlantis. :rolleyes: (Why yes I am a fan of Atlantis the Lost Empire. Why do you ask? :))

  17. The Mania Emerald Stages are, without fucking fail, the worst the series has ever had. Shitty controls, rubber banding UFO, no invincibility frames so you hit one batch of spikes into another, I am stunned the devs were such utter pinheads to allow this to be greenlit.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      completley dissagree about all of this besides the frames, I find it one of the better ones

    2. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      I am sorry that you disliked them. Personally, I found them pretty fun (except special stage five that one is a bubbles in the behind).

    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      They were rather simple once I figured them out, but to each their own.

    4. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Completely disagree. I loved Mania's special stages, and personally found Sonic Heroes to have the worst, most broken special stages ever.

      Hope you love losing momentum just from moving left and right, and I really hope you love getting stuck on the ceiling and randomly turned around! Seriously, Heroes' special stages are trash.

    5. The Deleter
    6. -Robin-

      -Robin-

      Heroes's controls are slippery by fault of the tubular design screwing with the momentum.

      Mania's controls are bad to create fake difficulty.

    9. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I mean they're still not great and I think that there are a multitude of better ways in which to allow the player to obtain emeralds beyond some more damn special stages... but I have to say that these are some of the best the series has had thus far imo. They're far from perfect (especially with the lack of invincibility frames) but they didn't make me want to pull my hair out this time around so there's that. Hell, after forcing myself to master them they actually became, dare I say, pleasant.

      Though again, if there's one thing I actually want to have die off in this franchise, it's special stages. Well, that and time limits.

    10. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      One thing I didn't like was you have to go through the stages again if you just wanna have fun with them.

      They're not very good but they're not very bad. There's a weird learning curve because of all the unnecesarry clunk but once I got the hang of them I didn't mind. They're basically like the other special stages.

    13. Strickerx5
    14. Mil-O-Lantern

      Mil-O-Lantern

      Nah man, I disagree. They're easily find them among the best. I mean, Special Stage 5 was hard as hell on my first try, but they're great otherwise.

      And man, if you think the controls for this are bad I'd love to hear your thoughts on the controls for the Advance trilogy. Or Sonic CD, for that matter.

      This sucks for the victims. He got off easy.

      Well that is indeed pitiful, I don't think he'll have it any easier after this.

      I actually believe this is better for the victims, Nepenthe. Hopefully this can provide them closure and help them move on with their lives.

      Besides, you're acting like justice is revenge, and that is a deeply troubling idea. That man was being held because he was a danger to civil society, not to make him suffer - no matter how much he deserved it. The main point of prison is to protect innocents. Get him out of the public, into prison so that others are safe from him. It'...

    7. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      ... It's not about HIM. It's about the people who are still here. Revenge does nothing for them. Doesn't help anyone.

    8. Nepenthe

      I don't think wanting people to serve out their given sentences, and subsequently being miffed when people don't under whatever circumstance, constitutes a revenge mindset.

      Well he saved us thousands of taxpayer's dollars to keep him alive in prison/kill him with lethal injection or whatever

    11. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      But you specifically said that he 'got off easy' and thus it was worse for the victim, which DOES constitute a revenge mindset. Wheter he served his given sentence or not is something else entirely.

    12. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      However, you're argued that his suicide was actually better for the victims, which contradicts your assertion that merely getting a criminal off the streets is ultimately the best thing for society, because he was already in jail and thus off the streets. It feels disingenuous to suggest I'm projecting a vengeful mindset by remarking on one of the methods with which he was removed from society and how that affects the victims, when you've effectively done the same thing.

    13. Dr. Homem

      Dr. Homem

      It's a different thing to talk about the effects on the victims or the whole society. If it's the victims, then yes, I could consider the suicide 'better' in a way, and psychologically it'd be correct. If it's the society, THEN getting the criminal off the streets is by itself acceptable. Therefore, I'm not remarking on the effects upon the victims and society as a whole as being the same.

    14. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      You discussed both anyway, by first saying verbatim that "this [suicide] is better for the victims," of which the inherent implication is that him actually serving his sentence proper would've been him "getting off easy." Ergo, I see no inherent difference between remarking that either a properly served jail sentence or a suicide is better or worse for the victims, and subsequently why I am projecting a vengeful mindset- and thus deserve chastising- and you are somehow not.

      NO IT DOESN'T. Rape is a vile crime of depravity, one of the worst things one human can do to another. The only reason it happens for is because there are sick bastards out there, it doesn't happen for some reason as defined by the universe or cosmos or for a reason than is anything more than depravity.

      "I really don't believe in abortion," Bieber says. "It's like killing a baby." How about in cases of rape? "Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don't know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."
