  1. Pirates Island is the best final stage in the series by sole virtue of being aesthetically unique.

      D'oh! Forgot about that one! lol

  2. OK, that original Rouge concept art looks better than the Rouge we have now. She looks like she has more spunk and pep to her.

  3. Spoiler

    Goku just divebombing Jiren in the end there was just crazy amazingly awesome.

    small Super spoiler.

      I really liked the SSJ form fizzling in and out

      It really showcased how much Goku was forcing his own body at that point.

      So THAT's how he's always faster than Sonic.

  5. Are there Sonic songs that you were originally indifferent to, but they steadily started to sound better to you over time? 

     

    Hidden Base from SA2 is currently hitting the right notes for me now.

      Everything from Mirage Saloon really.

      Still enjoy the remixes of it (such as James Wong's) more though.

  6. What timezone is that 3:30 timeslot for today?

  8. Nintendo and Square are in good graces again, and they already got the Final Fantasy loser out of the way....Geno's gonna be in Smash 5, isn't he.

      His Final Smash needs to be Mickey showing up with a giant DMCA letter in the background, C&D-ing everyone into the blastzones.

      Why on earth would Sora make it in when neither Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 nor 3 have/ will ever been on a Nintendo platform? :/

    5. KHCast

      KHCast

      You’re really gonna ask that when cloud is in...?:/

    6. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      KH Chain of Memories, 358/2, Recoded and specially DDD say hi. :P

      Meanwhile the only Nintendo games with Cloud in were CoM and Recoded. As cameos.

    7. Wraith

      Wraith

      Sora's getting in if they want me to buy this game

       

      Sora's in more nintendo games than cloud too no excuses lets go

    8. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Also is only matter of time till both Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts become a mainstay on Nintendo.

    9. KHCast

      Now, if not Sora, I’d love Neku considering his game got a switch release 

    10. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      You know, come to think of it, Snake got in at the height of his Sony run so yeah, stupid question.

      Since Microsoft is being so friendly to other platforms lately, I’ll throw my vote out there for Banjo and Kazooie.

  9. Hi, I'm late.

     

    HOLY FUCK SMASH.

  10. Sonic Colors DS's special stages are my favorite special stages in the series.

  11. If a Donkey Konga game was released nowadays, it would have the Attack on Titan theme as one of its tracks, and that's an opportunity we will never have now.

  12. Oh god....Metal Gear Survive is out tomorrow.

      Guys, can you feel the hype?
      Me neither.

      Well, it's nice to know at least one game will have a worse meta-critic score than Sonic Forces. We hope... :P

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Oh it'll Survive, alright!

    5. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      I doubt it's gonna be outright shat on for what it is, as gameplay-wise it still looks somewhat solid.

      Now what it represents is completely different story.

    6. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      Wait, they actually kept going with it?

      I expected it to be cancelled.

    7. KHCast

      KHCast

      Apparently their beta was last week lol

    8. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Sadly not Diamond. This game still lives, despite the hate. Its just MGSV with annoying survival stuff added (crafting, yay -_-)

    9. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      Look, I'm not even a MG fan but I know this is not how a MG should be.

      Even as a spin-off it doesn't bring the crazy fun one should do.

  13. Haven't watched Cars 3 yet, so impulse bought the DVD for it this morning. Glad I did. That photograph/letters scene really got to me. 

  14. Holy fuck this is so clean.

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      So, technically speaking, Shadow is the base form?

      ......Dear god how did the series reach this point

      You forgot Amy.

  16. Here's a thought: What is the most forgettable stage in Shadow the Hedgehog for you?

    1. TheOcelot
    2. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      If I remembered, it wouldn't be forgettable. 

    3. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      It's hard to say the most forgettable level when you don't remember them

  17. So when's the next Goku vs. Superman Death Battle.

  18. So apparently the Secret of Mana remake is bad.

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon
    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Yeah. Only real issue is some of the soundtrack, wich can be mitigated by switching to the original one. Other than that it's fine, there's a better translation and the 3D field allows a bit more tactical approach.
      Other than that and a few classic initial release bugs, most of the complaints come from people with nostalgia googles that it's in 3D so it sucks.

  19. Y'know, despite the multiple official remixes of it, I think the original tune for Chemical Plant Zone is the best. The synths and industrial sounding beats are just right.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The original is great. I don't know if I have a favourite version though. Mania Act 2 is incredibly fun and funky sounding, whilst Generations Act 2 sounds much cooler and more dangerous. And to that effect, those two remixes fit their respective renditions of the stages perfectly.

    I can only presume to help direct the next Starfox because it sure as hell needs it.

    1. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Considering they fucked up even with Platnium fucking Games I'm convinced talent isn't the issue so much as ideals. Starfox would be fine if just they stopped using it as a vehicle for pointless gimmicks for one god damned minute.

  23. World 1-1 of Super Mario Bros. was the VG song of the 80s.

    I guess Final Fantasy VII's Prelude was the VG song of the 90s?

    Live and Learn was the VG song of the 2000s.

    And the VG song of the 2010s atm is...idk, Bonetrousle?

    1. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Honestly if we're picking UT songs it might as well be Hopes and Dreams or Megalovania.

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      classic green hill (forces)

    3. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I thought Escape from the City was the VG song of the 2000s.

      There's many good choices for 2010s... Megalovania? Last Surprise? Jump Up, Super Star? BFG Division? I dunno, I can't think back too far.

    4. JezMM

      JezMM

      I feel these become more and more "cult popular" rather than "popular popular" as the list goes down lol.  EVERYONE knows the Mario theme.  The same can't be said of the other three.  Not even sure if there IS a song from those eras that have that same worldwide appeal, apart from maybe Sonic 1's main theme for 90's?

    5. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      While I'll agree that the Super Mario Bros. Theme was the song back then but it wasn't always like that. In the UK it might have been either one of Rob Hubbard's stuff (Monty on the Run, Commando), Magical Sound Shower from Out Run or Martin Galway's Comic Bakery as the song of the 1980s. Seriously Comic Bakery got a lot of remixes and pops up in unlikely places during that time. Ever played Jurassic Park on the Game Boy? The first level theme IS Comic Bakery.

      90s is harder because it was like split into two halves (chiptune/Amiga era and redbook era). For the former, I go with Green Hill. For the latter not sure since it was when people started putting licensed songs into games and they are probably more well known than nearly all these songs put together. I always thought that One Winged Angel was the Final Fantasy VII song so I'll go for that, Facility from GoldenEye or Joyride from Grand Theft Auto in terms of popularity. Probably also a Super Mario 64 song too. Personally I would have loved to say Super Sonic Racing as that fits with the mid to late 90s like a glove with its cheesy Brit-pop.

      Oh, I forgot about DAAAYYYTOOONNNAAA. Let's Go Away. Yep.

      I can't recall many songs from the 2010s since for many games, it is either ambiance or orchestral movie style with a few exceptions being whatever Mick Gordon made, some indie games and the usual Nintendo/Sonic/Jake Kaufman stuff. I'll probably go for Megalovania as well, it fits with the indie game evolution that this decade had.

  24. 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.
