    I honestly thought Space Jam 2 was alright. Probably a bit on par with the original, even if I prefer the OG for the soundtrack and I thought it was paced a bit better, but enjoyed it enough. The 2D Animation was certainly better than the trailers made it out to be, I just assume it was unfinished in those, but it looks nice in the film IMO. It was an extremely packed theater too which absoutely surprised me.

    There is literally only story beat in that 40 minute episode, good God.

    The Mario spin-offs are lacking in visual presentation.

    Winston reacted to Blue Blood for a status update, I have to preface this with the disclaimer that this is not a slight against SSMB and   
    I have to preface this with the disclaimer that this is not a slight against SSMB and it's members. I've been a member here for close to half of my life because I love this community. So my point here isn't to criticise the community at all or imply that this a bad place. It's not. It's awesome. tldr: it's not you, it's me. I just don't want there to be any room for misinterpretation.
    One of the happiest times of my life was the space between 2015 to 2016. This was when I went back during my first year of university. Not long after I started uni, something happened on here and I decided to leave SSMB.  SSMB is the only social media that I'm really on. I lurk on a couple of sub-Reddits (mainly cake baking, cooking and funny pictures) and talk about Sonic stuff on Retro whilst avoiding pretty much everything else.
    But SSMB is different; it's this community that's focused on Sonic primarily, whilst there's still tons of discussion about a huge range of other games and general pop culture that just doesn't interest me. Quite often the amount of Sonic discussion is dwarfed by discussion of tons of other stuff that I just don't want to engage in. It's not like anyone is forcing me to take part in the stuff that didn't interest me. But most of the stuff that people talk about here doesn't interest me. Anime, superheroes, cartoons, most games, general nerd culture and pop culture that isn't relevant to me in the slightest, but that everyone else seems to be totally tuned in to... It's just not for me and yet I've surrounded myself in it. I spend an eye watering amount of time on here and don't actually fit in. It's draining to be in this situation. 
    Whilst I was at uni and had basically left this site (I lurked infrequently, but didn't login and didn't post), I was in such a good mental state constantly. I had a a life and a social life away from SSMB and the rest of the Internet. I was just doing my own thing, engrossing myself in my studies and living my own life doing things that I enjoyed. I genuinely think that being here is kind of bad for me, especially when I'm here as much as I am. I need to step right back. 
    This past week or so I've been in an incredibly low state, so I may well reflect differently on this when I'm feeling better. But generally if I'm not talking about Sonic games or some of the other game series that I still play (considering that I don't play a huge number of games nowadays) this place just doesn't do anything positive for me. People talk about stuff that's a million miles off my radar. It's aggravating. And that's definitely my problem, not anyone else's. I need to spend more time on things that I actually care about.

    I beat Rift Apart, and what a fantastic game it is. I honestly haven't had that much fun with a game in years, everything just worked for me for the most part. I remember having similar feelings with Crack in Time when I first beat that game. It's great. I highly recommend it.
