  1. Been playing Sonic Unleashed again... and gotta say, the Werehog isn't that bad. Sometimes the camera can be a wee bit annoying but it's not as boring as I remembered it. 

    1. Winston


      I've really only played Unleashed on and off, so maybe that's why. As a kid, I hated the werehog. But maybe as I grow older and more patient, his levels can be fun even if they aren't fast paced.

      Are you playing a new file or a completed file with upgrades? Cause the Werehog gets a lot more tolerable when you've increased his strength and enemies stop being such hit sponges.

      The real problem with the Werehog isn't that his gameplay is slow. It's that it's completely the opposite of the daytime gameplay, and you get constantly interrupted by battles that are too frequent and monotonous. Like yeah, the Werehog isn't great gameplay by any standards, but it could have been much better so easily. Take out most of the battles (the most boring parts that drag on way too long) and the gameplay will instantly be improved. I wouldn't mind the button-mash battles if they didn't constitute well over half the time in his levels.

      I really only played the Wii version as a kid and never really touched the HD version outside of a few times on the PS3 where I got bored of the werehog stages and quit when I was like 16. I guess now I’m fine with the enemies taking longer to die, but I’ve been upgrading strength and combat with the werehog more than anything else so maybe that’s why I’m finding it less annoying. When I was younger, I just remember being bored because it wasn’t Sonic going fast and never looked too much into the constant arenas that are repeated, although I didn’t like that either. It could’ve been much better but I guess I remember it being worse so it’s not as awful as I thought it would be replaying it. 

  2. For the past four days, I’ve woken up nearly every two hours throughout the night. This is very annoying.

      I can't even sleep at night so I sleep during the day

      But even then something wakes me up 😕

  3. It really sucks that Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection isn't backwards compatible on Xbox One. I know they have a brand new collection on there, but damn, Ultimate Genesis was great. PSP one was pretty good too.

  4. Hate to say it, but I'm just not all that excited for this. Maybe I'll check it out if I hear overwhelmingly good things about it. It's interesting to see that Peach is somewhat the antagonist with Mario and Bowser teaming up, which doesn't really seem to happen all that often anymore, but still. Gameplay looks a tad bit better and more in line with the originals than Sticker Star or Color Splash, but not really all that much better to make me jump out of my chair in excitement. Didn't see much in terms of more original characters outside of the one unique NPC that tells Mario what to do throughout the game as usual. It doesn't look like a bad game, which is already a step above Sticker Star. Never played Color Splash so I can't talk much about it, but I heard the writing was a bit better. I don't know. Partners seem to be back which is cool, but it's going to take a lot more to excite me for this game. Maybe I look picky, but really, all I want is the game to feel unique. It just gives me way too many vibes from the games that I don't like, and I really don't see what Nintendo is doing with this franchise. I get they want to make the paper a more important element to the series since it is called Paper Mario, but they seem to be sacrificing way too much of what made people love the series to get that to work for some reason.
  5. The pacing in the FFVII Remake is a little weird, but I'm enjoying it so far. There are some issues with the story I have, but I really do like how some characters are expanded upon. 

  6. For that line, I want to say something. How many politicians do you know that actually get everything they push out to do done? Obama ran on fixing healthcare among many things, and he did all that he could at the time. It wasn't great, and most people agree with Obamacare not being the best. But do you remember how every single Republican ran on getting rid of Obamacare? Every single one, yet it's still here after a decade. Paul Ryan literally told people there was no hope in getting rid of it in the foreseeable future. Another thing, it'd be great to get the things Bernie proposes in America. I'm sure most people would agree with you. But do you legitimately believe most of the things he said was going to happen? The Senate is not going to allow him to radically change healthcare like that, regardless of his party or if it's the right thing. Even if every Democrat voted for it, I really don't see any Republicans budging on it at all, and they're the majority currently. It could radically change in 2020, I don't know, but polls are showing that it slightly favors Democrats in regaining control of the Senate, and I really do not believe every Democrat would vote for all of Bernie's policies. It's great that Bernie was proposing all this amazing stuff. He seems to genuinely care about getting healthcare to people, fixing the environment, and more. This is not something that can change in so little time though. This is years and years of work that is still ahead, sadly. I would say the things that Plasme said for Biden have far more of a chance of happening than a lot of the things that Bernie had proposed. I mean, I don't know for sure. Nobody knows for sure. Bernie could have gotten in and got everything done. But these people are politicians. They say things to garner support regardless of if it's possible or not. They openly know a lot of what they are saying has a very good chance of not happening, but it gets people to vote for them. Do you think Trump legitimately thought Mexico was going to pay for the wall? Of course not, but it worked as a message for his base. Not saying Bernie is only saying things to work as a message for his base, I genuinely believe he wants to make change. It still stands that he is a politician and will say things he thinks will boost him in the polls above anything else though, regardless of if he thinks it will be legitimately possible if he is President. A lot of people don't like Biden, it's true. I'm not a huge fan of him myself. He does have a shit record. You can vote or not. It's up to you completely, but acting like Biden has no chance of getting things done compared to Bernie is somewhat laughable. It was unfair what the Democrats were doing to Bernie, I agree fully. It's corrupt and wrong for them to push for one candidate over the other, but let's not pretend that Biden did not have a solid shot at the nomination. He was a popular Vice President, and Obama is still popular with Democrats and moderates. People look at the relation between the two and vote, regardless of Biden's record. A lot of people voting in the primaries liked Biden's message of getting things back to "normal", and he even outdid Hillary in states that she won in 2016 by quite a lot. The point is, it takes years for change to actually happen. Racism is still rampant in America even after the abolition of slavery and the Civil Rights Act. Abortion is still an issue even decades after Roe v. Wade. It takes a very, very long time for things to actually happen. The fact that Biden has changed some of his stances to better suit Bernie supporters is proof that what Bernie is pushing for is making a difference, and will continue to develop for years to come. It's depressing, I know, but it's just how politics work. It would be nice if we had more than two choices in Presidential elections, it would be nice if the electoral college was updated/removed depending on your stance, but these things take time. Regardless of if Bernie won or not, there would be very little chance that what he pushed for would actually get done. Do you think how Obamacare ended up was Obama's intention? Absolutely not, but it was the only way he was going to get it done. I really don't see how Bernie was going to change this country to a national healthcare system ten years later without making major sacrifices. You can sit out this election if you really want to, but I always emphasize the importance of the right to vote. Even if you don't want to vote for a Presidential candidate running, voting for a Senator or Congressman that you believe best represents you is just as important because these are the people that either reject or agree to the bills that are being presented to them. Get people in there that align with Bernie. We'll get to that change one day.
  7. I'm voting for Biden because I'm concerned about the Supreme Court as well as what is currently going on with the handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Who knows what justices could retire in the coming years, and four years is a long time. I really don't see RBG serving another four years, I mean it's totally possible she could, but I'm just saying. The Supreme Court would have a conservative majority for a very long time, and it's good to have a little bit of a differing opinion on there, but it'd be six to three. I think that's a bit much.
  8. Nothing makes me happier than sharing the same day of birth as Charles the Chameleon.

  9. Been playing the original FFVII recently, and man that game still holds up extremely well. The graphics aren't the best but it's still a good time. Not to mention the music is just excellent. I hope one day to be able to play the remake. 

    1. QuantumEdge


      I played it for the first time this year and completely loved it.  In a weird way I sort of like the graphics, but I think that's more nostalgia for pre rendered backgrounds lol  

  10. Man, Spyro 1's flying levels just aren't fun to me. Don't know if they're in the later games, but I hope they fixed them. 

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      The key thing to remember is that all of the flying levels in every Spyro game always has a set ideal path you should go on. Spyro 1 is a little more trickier to figure out, but Spyro 2 more often than not sets you on the path straight away, while Spyro 3 has Sparx straight up tell you the ideal path.

  11. I always feel like my taste in Sonic games is very strange. I don't like Sonic 1 or Sonic CD, but I like Sonic 2 and 3. I like Sonic Adventure and Heroes but don't like SA2 or Shadow. I like Colors and Generations but don't like Unleashed, Lost World or Forces. Mania is good as well, and I don't think I need to say anything about Boom or 06. 

    1. StaticMania


      That seems average...


    2. Winston


      Usually from what I see, people seem to stick to one particular era and that's it. They don't really budge much. 

    3. Winston


      Maybe I watch too many YouTube videos.

      I almost never watch Sonic YouTube videos, but your opinions seem pretty normal by this forum's standards.

  12. Don't really play a lot of mobile games, but as a huge Crash fan, I'm pretty excited for this one and seeing where it goes. I'm sure they'll add more bosses eventually. I also like how they're incorporating elements from Twinsanity and Titans/Mutants into the game, such as Scorporilla being a boss. I really dig how they turned him into more of a "classic" Crash villain instead of just a species of mutants like in those games. It honestly fits pretty well with characters like Dingodile. I was afraid these things would be buried, and I don't really know if this is a popular opinion, but I like pretty much every Crash game even if they're not as consistently good as they were in the Naughty Dog games. Titans/Mutants certainly isn't a good Crash game, but it's a pretty alright game on it's own and I think elements from it can work such as them bringing in the species and trying to incorporate them as bosses. It's very interesting to see. I think the microtransaction stuff is coming from the wait times, correct? It surprises me to see that Coco isn't playable or there isn't any costumes for Crash, but it's only available in certain territories so far so maybe that stuff isn't accessible yet. With Coco being the lab person though, I don't know if she could be playable but it'd be cool. It'd also be nice to get Nina as playable considering she played somewhat similarly to Crash in Twisanity. Doubt that would happen since Cortex is the villain, but maybe she'll get in as a boss eventually. But yeah, that's all I really have to say about it. I think it'll be a pretty decent mobile game. If any game series fits a hallway runner type game, it's Crash.
  13. I really like how Crash is getting elements from the entire series incorporated into it. Seeing the Scorporilla from Titans is cool, especially since they made him of more a classic Crash boss instead of a generic species, which honestly works considering Dingodile is also a hybrid like that.

      I do really appreciate that they still find things from the lesser Crash games worth revisiting and keeping as part of the greater Crash mythos. It would have been so easy and also expected to just toss everything from post Naughty Dog in the trash but here we is in 2020, Scorporilla, Von Clutch, Pasadena O'Possum et al existing alongside the whole PS1 Crash gang.

  14. I think I'm far too obsessed with the Crash Bandicoot series.

    1. Jango


      I don't see this as a problem 

    2. Winston


      Good point. It feels weird to have it back after so long. I just hope it doesn't die again.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      I'm onto you buddy

      you're the guy in the crash mascot suit

  15. I guess a Silver game could happen one day, maybe, but I highly doubt it'd be for the 30th Anniversary of the series. I certainly wouldn't mind a Silver game, I actually like Silver, but I don't really see a need for his own standalone title. Maybe bring him back as playable in a future Sonic game? I just wouldn't get your hopes up too high outside of him maybe being playable in whatever game is coming out for the anniversary.
