  1. This level hack video really showcases how bad the base physics & gameplay were in Sonic-06.

      the level mod is actually pretty well done. besides some obvious bits (like the setpices where the camera doesn't quite match the one in adventure 2 and some areas of the background) it is pretty faithful to the original level.

      but yeah, that sonic 06 gameplay is just toss. really emphasizes the bizarre floaty jump physics they gave to sonic and other oddities (like how sonic ends up falling into a "stun" animation if he just brushes up against a ramp or a wall while running).

      meanwhile the crisis city mod for forces that supahberry posted perfectly showcases how absolutely wack sonic's jump is for 3D platforming and how there's no speed while you're not running straight (like in lost world). the player has to almost always either boost or double jump from one platform to another when he's not playing in a 2D perspective.

  2. I notice quite a few Spanish speakers seem to like my stuff every now and then on twitter. Really makes me wanna learn the language so I can interact with them.

      As someone who has taken Spanish classes since middle school (but still not quite good at it) you might be a bit surprised at how many words are actually similar to their English counterparts (i.e. la computadora, los pantalones, la bicicleta). Or might be similar to one English term but actually stands for a related English term (sopa isn't soap, but it is soup; ratón actually means mouse, rather than rat).

  3. I dunno why but I've been in a S3K mood lately. Did a Sonic run yesterday and Tails the day before, about to do a Knuckles run. Off topic, but is it just me or was the Insta-Shield nerfed in Mania? The timing feels off, like it doesn't last as long as it does in S3K. I dunno, maybe I just suck.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      IIRC, the main/proven difference with the insta-shield in Mania is that the attack hitbox is smaller than in 3&K

      (sonic 1/2/3&K also have a "locked" rolling jump; e.g. if you spindash/roll and then jump, sonic's movement is fixed, you can't move sonic left or right during this jump. in 3&K you can use the insta-shield to break out of the lock in order to move sonic during a rolling jump; but in sonic cd and mania, this "lock" for the rolling jump lock is removed, allowing you to move sonic freely during these rolling jumps. so naturally the insta-shield doesn't have that lock-removal ability in mania.)

      EDIT: I think it's also been said that the Mania insta-shield doesn't have invincibility like in 3&K. can't really confirm/not sure.

  4. The 8th generation of consoles is coming to an end and the only mainline 3D Sonic game we got is Sonic Forces, which looked worse than Unleashed. That's kind sad.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      Forces might be graphically superior than the previous generation of Sonic games, but you can hardly even tell any real difference due to the excessive use of old assets, the jumbled use of assets with different art styles (some being from the more detailed/realistic Generations and others being the more simple/stylized Lost World), and said assets not being very high quality to begin with (that scene Tarnish posted is a perfect example). 

      Forces only really has the graphical edge over Unleashed/Generations and company with the two original zones in Metropolis and the Egg Empire Fortress, which actually are original locations with competently-made new assets. Unfortunately they are dwarfed by both the "new" zones that clearly clones of previous stages (Mystic Jungle, "City" aka Sunset Heights) or straight up returning zones (I don't even need to mention which those zones are).

  5. Man, I just have like, zero excitement for Rise of Skywalker.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      since it's JJ in the director's/writer's chair again, a lot of people are expecting rise of skywalker to be a cover version/retread of the jedi 2.0, much like how the force awakens was for a new hope. and tbh, there's quite a few announced returning concepts/characters from that movie that's serving as vindication for those concerns.

      with that in mind it's honestly kinda hard to imagine JJ avoiding that in favor of continuing from what rian johnson set up with TLJ. maybe it's possible to do both, but i'll be damned if TRoS will able to do that and still come out a coherent quality movie.

  6. subvert expectations

    1. Milo

      Milo

      tbh i was actually expecting the chase/fight over the stones to extend over both movies, rather than one side being able to succeed and have the next film deal with the outcome. that's how most stories of this type i'm familiar with usually go.

      before anyone tells me that i should read more comics: honestly, i don't. which i'm sure explains everything about my perspective.

  7. I'm actually on the way to the Harry Potter tour right now. Just shy of Milton Keynes currently.

      The Warner Bros. Studio Tour where you see the sets, props, and special effects used for the movies, right?

      I remember going there with my folks before we left England, it was pretty cool. Hope you have fun.

  8. I was such a fool for thinking that transferring my Wii data to my Wii U would be a good idea

    1. Milo

      Milo

      Given how much of a bottleneck console the Wii U has been (can't use the console w/o the GamePad...) and it's early abandonment for the Switch, I feel the same way 😕

  9. Assuming the PS5 and Project Scarlet launch around the same time, say November, next year, are any of you planning on jumping to next-gen then or are you holding off for a bit?

    The Switch was my first day one console so I'm gonna wait and see. The backwards compatibility on either will definitely be a big temptation if they came through. Would compensate for a weaker launch line-up.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      I just bought a Switch this year, so likely not

  10. The turnaround of Microsoft this Gen was amazing, to say the least.

    They went from being absolutely loathed and ridiculed when they first showed the SPORTSPORTSPORTS Box at the beginning of the Gen and the whole DRM debacle, to now giving away access to an absurd amount of games for a flipping buck. It's absolutely insane, in the best way. Or heck, even shit like letting Nintendo use Banjo in Smash, because they know people would love it.

    "When everybody plays, we all win" could be taken cynically if it was said by a lot of gaming companies, but right now, from MS, despite being an evil mega corporation like anybody else, I almost kinda believe they mean it. And after how they started this Gen, it's an astonishing feat.

      @Blue Blood now that I think of it, “Multiple Scoliosis” doesn’t really sound like a comeback story anyone would want to hear

  11. Does anyone else feel November went by really quickly?

    Like, it feels like only a week has passed, and yet, there’s only 2 days left of the month.

      Kinda felt October went by faster, actually.

      @Solister Unfortunately no, ha. These are concepts I personally came up with for an airport-themed Sonic zone. I have some more ideas for this concept but this is what I wanted to share for now.

      this is the most morbid thanksgiving greeting i have ever seen

  19. Twitter is annoying, Reddit is too big for their boots, 4chan wastes their time doing pointless things, Instagram is obnoxious, Facebook is the quarantine of old folks, YouTube is too loud, and TikTok is unoriginal.

    There are good folks among them. Find those you like and stick by them, and life becomes easier.

  21. Yep, Angela Anaconda still holds up for me.

    Dunno why the vast majority of people hate this show.

  22. I just discovered there are currently a grand total of three Nicktoons currently running (two of which are sister shows).

    That makes me really sad.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      They were supposed to launch another show in recent years (a videogame-themed animated show called Glitch Techs, if I'm recalling the name correctly), but that seems to have fallen into development hell. There are even reports about production having stopped on the show some time ago. Nobody's really sure if it's going to come out.

      And on that note, I'm pretty sure there's been quite a few pilots that's been pitched to Nick that they've posted, but they don't seem to enter production into entire shows (or even miniseries).

      Not sure if it plays a part of it or not, but I think Nick merged both their live-action and animation departments into one studio pretty recently, which might be a factor for the lack of new shows as of late.
