  1. Watching a playthrough of Sonic Robo Blast 2 v2.2 and I'm honestly blown away by the stage mechanics and badniks the designers have incorporated into the levels, namely in the later stages like the desert/canyon level and the succeeding volcano level. In a way it really emphasizes the experience Sonic Team Jr. has had in building 3D levels compared to other 3D Sonic fangame projects.

  4. Hey everyone, PSA abound that there may have been a security breach of Nintendo Accounts, people have reported that their accounts has been accessed by unknown parties in other regions multiple times, even with accounts that have strong/unique passwords. (Link is to an discussion thread on ResetEra, but people on Reddit and Twitter have reported such events as well. Nintendolife also has an article about it here.) Changing your password, enabling two-factor/multi-factor authentication (2FA/MFA) and unlinking your PayPal account (if you have one connected) has been the generally recommended actions to take.

  5. Polygon review for Sonic Forces.

    "Sonic Forces is like da most thugged-out literal interpretation you gonna eva peep of a game 'for hustlas only'. Sonic Forces creators' phat intentions n' bangin-ass scams don't amount ta much up in a game so clumsy n' limited up in design. I aint talkin' bout chicken n' gravy biatch. Well shiiiit, it certainly don't help dat Forces bigs up right on tha heels of Sonic Mania, a game dat not only demonstrated a mo' focused design sensibilitizzle but also did a gangbangin' far betta thang of realizin its creators' ambitions. Forces may have had a larger budget than Mania yo, but it feels like tha skankyer creation all around. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! Unless yo' dearest trip has always been ta play a Sonic game as yo' own original gangsta hustla art character, Sonic Forces aint gots much ta offer.

    If Forces do anythang well, itz ta add a sense of spectacle ta tha mundane act of hustlin up in a straight line fo' realz."

  6. sonic forces' story would probably be way more entertaining if it was built around the infinite origin stuff instead of the actual stupid war. either on a serious route (actually showcasing the negative growth of infinite's character and status from a third-rate villain into the phantom ruby-souped up reality warper) or the comedy route (the writers taking the pontac & graff / sonic boom / social media angle of self-awareness/self-depreciation and openly satirizing or lampooning the whole edgelord character trope for what its worth).

  7. I think one of the things that is missed with the Episode Shadow DLC with Forces is just how far of a step back it was from the Lost World DLC with the Yoshi's Island and Legend of Zelda levels. We went from having DLC with had original assets and stages that were actually enjoyable (if short); to DLC purely junkyard-style assembled from existing assets/stages with some of the absolute laziest level design in the entire game.

      @Thigolf What if we just made an entire level of floating iron crates and called it Green Hill Virtual Reality?

      Episode Shadow, other than the long-awaited gimmick, was business as usual considering the DLC of Unleashed.

    4. JezMM

      JezMM

      I mean Episode Shadow wasn't even really proper DLC considering it was available at launch, and the Lost World DLC was likely partially funded by Nintendo in some way or another.

       

      The only thing that really ticks me off with Episode Shadow is how lazy it is in terms of being supposedly set weeks before the main game and yet the city is already just as ruined as it is in the main game. The music's good at least (though tonally Supporting Me on a Green Hill stage is yuck as hell - they should've used the background from the opening scene of Null Space or something if they were gonna mostly make the stage out of floating blocks anyway...)

      Graphically it's about on-par with Forces on Switch, but Toontown has better character customisation that Forces.

    I hope the orchestra is ready.

     

  12. figured they would indefinitely postpone the sxsw replacement panel.

    the only complaint I have about it is that the amount of fake "my grunkle at Nintega" """leaks""" from 4chan and reddit are going to quintuple over the next few months due to people losing their minds over no sonic news.

    all that aside, (indefinite) delays seem to be on brand for the entire franchise as of late. this should had been spotted from ten miles away

  16. I wonder if Sega are still planning to have that SXSW replacement event this month as they said, or if that’s been pushed back indefinitely.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I hope they are, but whatever they're planning now they're definitely not prepared to make any announcements yet. Had they planned to get together to do their own livestream, that's probably be scuppered by social distancing practices, thus further delaying their plans. And whatever if was they wanted to talk about at SXSW has probably changed to. Looking back on it, April may be a bit ambitious.

  17. i've really come to appreciate toon link for being (for me) the most accessible characters when it comes to start and holding combos with. he's also good for opting for a more aggressive style of play.

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Sometimes playing Toon Link messes me up because I'm used to regular and Young Link and TL's moves are overall pretty different from them, but I agree he is pretty fun once you get used to those differences.

  18. In this video, Doktor K Rool treats his patients to a series of some of the most painful kolonoscopies (UAirs and USmashes) they will ever experience.

    Also, some silly clips I got with Dedede.

  20. On the topic about Generations' level selection--I recall some commentary/speculation back in the day that Sega asked for some feedback on about what people's favorite Sonic levels from previous games were, and they used the responses from that as inspiration for determining what stages would be chosen for the game. (Maybe this might had also been revealed in an interview by Iizuka and company as well, but I personally can't recall off the top of my head.)

    I think this June 2009 Sonic facebook post in question is what they were referring to (note and parse through the 300+ replies).

    1. Milo

      Milo

      The question originally had a poll, which has been closed and the results weren't given. Someone at GameFAQs did do their own tally of the zones that got the most votes, however, based on the number of people who replied.

      The Sonic facebook page also asked a similar question (and held a similar post) about people's favorite level themes in Sonic games shortly afterwards.

    2. Solister

      Solister

      Now you made me think. I believe that Sonic Generations had a better level selection than Mania (Unpopular opinion, likely).

      Assuming the Gamefaq is real (I've also heard this pool story but definitely wasn't on internet yet (I was likely, 5 yo)). It's interesting to see that there's no Modern levels (I don't think the idea existed after Unleashed or likely Colors), so making CC, RTR and PW SEGA's choice as well it impresses me that Sky Sanctuary got pretty low results and end up in the game (Which I'm far from minding 'cause that likely would be my choice).

      But linking to Mania, as many already have said, I think I'd remove quarter of the recurring levels to new ones (I'm looking at you, HydroCity, Oil Ocean, Metalic Madness, Lava Reef...).

      Still, some levels I'd like to see returning, Mania, Generations or both:

      Casino Night (Mania): Could've been an awesome tackle for Bonus Stage. I can forgive for Encore.
      IceCap (Both): No words. Press Garden gives the feeling, but I'd prefer a full level remake.
      Emerald Coast (Gen): Available on 3Ds, still I miss a version on PC.
      Tropical Resort (Gen): Same as above
      Metropolis (Gen): Forces doesn't count...
      Death Egg (Mania): We had on Gen, it was something pretty memorable to be left aside. No doubt would change for Metalic Madness and maybe Titanic Monarch.
      Aquatic Ruin (Mania): Yeah, pretty unpopular opinion, kinda cool level, got fooled with the ear rape fake video someone made before the game release.
      Twinkle Park (Gen): Unlike and possible the very last option, still I believe it's a pretty unique level on the franchise.

      I see Starlight almost ended on Gen. It's a level I like, but don't think is that popular. Easily take Speed Highway instead. Might would take Sky Sanctuary for Mania too (Another unpopular opinion).

      And of course, it's a childhood dream and one of the biggest mistakes I see on Mania wasn't recycling Sonic 2 beta levels: I know, we had HPZ on Mobile and Mirage Saloon as a spiritual successor to Dust Hill and Desert Dazzle, but as IceCap, it isn't the same feeling of seeing "Hidden Palace Zone", "Dust Hill Zone" or "Desert Dazzle" on the title card screen.

      Heck, SEGA can almost make a Gen/Mania 2 just with the levels I mentioned. Wondering if SEGA/Whitehead had access to this pool for Forces and Mania.

  21. one of my better days playing online

      I only needed to hear the first half-second to know where this was going.

  23. You've heard of Minnesota Fats: Pool Legend

    Now get ready for...a pun of that title for a King Dedede montage.

     

  24. the biggest crime of forces was how it explicitly refused to confirm infinite as the henpecked sheet senpai of the kawaii street mephiles as i'm going to explain in my five page fanfiction essay of the surprisingly rich, yet obscured, thematic connections between sonic the hedgehog 2006 and sonic forces
