      See? Protesting does cause positive change.

    2. Celestia


      Tristan really is a big baby huh

      Tho' on top of that I wonder if the other writers were leaving too, lol. I know Donnie did but hadn't looked into the others.

    3. TheOcelot


      Yeah, he won't be missed.

      Just saw a caption of the tweet comparing the protests to Sonic, and WHAT?

    5. Polkadi~☆


      A certain someone is clearly not thinking with a clear conscience right now.


      calm the fuck down, tristan

      Look, Tristan had been a scumbag before with a shitty track even prior to today's shitty incident. I hope he's okay, and that people will stop hounding now that he's admitted his major faults and actually closed down his site. That's a pretty huge thing for him to do, and not one I think he needed to take. Don't respect the guy at all, but his intentions were (supposedly) good regardless of how dumb they were. Here's hoping he's given the chance to reflect and improve upon himself without being bullied. 

      I'd like to see a line drawn under this now.

    7. VisionaryofSUPER


      Man, some people just don't want to see it. That's fine enough to me. The channel isn't obliged to listen if it believe strongly in what it has to say. A news channel just for a specific other thing, it kinda feels weird man and you are making dumb correlations.

      He was free to share it all the same, and could be proud at the dropped numbers. But he took it too far when he started relating Sonic to it and just kind of turned his message into a joke.

    8. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      what exactly did he post that brought this all on?

    9. Balding Spider
    10. Tornado


      He made a post comparing the events of Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Forces to the police brutality incidents that led to the current protests to justify why he was talking about it on the TSSZ News account when people bitched at him for mentioning the protesting.


    11. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      well that sure is a take...

    12. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Was that last line supposed to be ironic? XD

    13. Tornado


      His heart was in the right place probably, but the correct response to people demanding that he KEEP YOUR POLITICS OUT OF MY SONIC would have been to invite those people to wrap their mouths around Trump's toilet pipes and eat all of the shit in the world.



      Not casually make a comparison to a person being murdered by a policeman and the heavy handed riot response by the various city municipal police forces to Sonic jumping out of an attack helicopter and snowboarding down the hills of San Francisco.

      TBH I kind of feel this is why fandom sites shouldn't be covering real-life news.

      Someone ends up claiming "Sonic is about fighting opression" then it goes to shit.

      Stay at Home Ultima

      Well THAT happened.

      Now that I think about it, it's quite the overstep. What about the others who still work there?  Several people in the replies are asking them to reconsider.

  2. The fuck is wrong with TSSZ

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      They just lost Donnie, so I think at this point "virtually everything" is the answer to that question.

    2. Soniman


      Some people need to get some damn PERSPECTIVE and read the damn room

      Stay at Home Ultima

      You know ya dun goofed when you compare incidents to games with a cartoon hedgehog.


    6. KHCast


      Reminds me of a couple arguments I’ve seen in Sonic threads. Only somehow, the ones in those have more tact and respect for the historical events being brought up

    7. Polkadi~☆


      To answer your question:

      no fuckin' clue, but i'm a little scared to find out what the actual answer is

    8. Teoskaven


      What happened?

    9. Polkadi~☆


      TSSZ on Twitter tried to make a comparison to the current riots in America with Sonic, and say that it's important that they make that connection and heavily report on the riots. Something along those lines.

    10. Stay at Home Ultima

      Stay at Home Ultima

      And I think they still missed the point on why people are mad at them in the first place.

      I know they are very into journalism, real life journalism, but I don't think that's their audience, people on their page want to know about Sonic. Politics, real life and the pandemic have nothing to do with it. Fans want to escape from real life problems, maybe?

    13. KHCast


      Game companies were talking about the pandemic since the start and no one had a problem there. Also the problem isn’t that they’re talking about the protests, it’s that they made an asinine comparison that insults the thing. If Nike, Nordstrom, sports teams, etc. can talk about the protest, game companies and sites can too

    14. Tracker_TD


      Yeah, the response to their earlier tweets where they defended posting the BLM content at all was generally fine from what I saw; it was when they made the asinine comparisons that the tide turned to "oh christ Tristan what the hell are you doing" 

    15. Kuzu


      Oh ho, I've seen these types of people. They're a lost cause.

  3. So here's my two the  cents, wait you want more? I'm already poor enough as is!

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I wish the dislike button still existed so I could use that, but it doesn't so you'll have to settle for a regular like instead. 

  4. Sonic remixes in Ultimate ? Nope 

    Final Fantasy remixes? Nope 

    Mega Man remixes? Fuck it. SEVENTEEN REMIXES 

    That shit still kills me 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      No Sonic remixes? But you're forgetting about that one Angel Island that we first heard in 2007!

      I don't follow Smash at all, but from an outside perspective it's always looked kind like Sonic joined Brawl with a somewhat unimaginative moveset and has gotten the short end of the stick ever since.

    2. StaticMania


      The logic should've revived you by now.

    3. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      Even more depressing when you see Jun Senoue brought on to do a Mega Man remix, but no one around to do any Sonic remixes.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Don't forget that Tomoya Ohtani also did a Splatoon remix.

    5. Perkilator


      Ugh. Don’t remind me.

  5. I think the battle system looks really interesting. The kind of thing where you take advantage of the enemies positioning for max damage reminds me of Chrono Trigger a bit
  6. Never actually played a Mario Party game so I obviously don't have any attachments to the old game people compare the new titles too so it looks pretty cool to me. Gonna wait for reviews and fan impressions before committing though
  7. TLOU2 for June 19th 



    1. TheOcelot


      Earlier than expected. Damage control, maybe 🤔

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      What was even the point of the delay??

    3. Thigolf


      Sony after the leaks is like "FUCKFUCKFUCK JUST GET IT OUT"

    4. Jango


      Oh boy, my last status got ninja'd

    5. Strickerx5


      That's some straight up damage control if I've ever seen it.

    6. Kuzu


      ....goddamn it, I saw the first comment 

    7. Ryannumber1gamer
    8. Jango


      First rule of avoiding spoilers: NEVER read the coments.

  8. TLOU2 leaked and it has just completely eviscerated the hype for this game

    1. Jango


      You got spoiled I assume?

    2. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Oh, this I've got to hear.

    3. Soniman


      Not spoiled but none of the impressions I've read for people who have been are good lol 

    4. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Sounds like the crunch time didn't do this game any favors.

    5. Jango


      I'll be damned, TLoU 2 isn't amazing? Even with crunch, this wasn't expected. But still. Well... We shall see... Someday. 

    6. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      I mean, we kinda got hints that game wasn't gonna be amazing as early as 2018, but yeah, this might worse than even the skeptics imagined in the first place.

    7. Jango


      We got?

    8. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Yeah, at E3 2018.

    9. Jango


      lol, all I remember is a pretty amazing trailer and gameplay. I don't know which "hints" you're referring to. Don't tell it's because of the gay kiss? '-'

    10. JosepHenry


      I have a feeling is the opposite

    11. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Joseph has the better idea here. It just really was not a good showing for the game. Why would a gay kiss determine the quality of a game anyway @Jango?

    12. JosepHenry


      I mean if you are a homophobe it decides a lot lol

    13. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Well, the gay kiss is definitely not being cited as a reason the game sucks, nor were the majority citing it as such back then either. 

    14. The Master

      The Master

      I saw bits and what I saw was really bad. 

    15. JosepHenry


      Ok I saw them what the fuck why

    16. Jango


      Well, you didn't pointed which hints, so I assumed something completely off, because I really don't know in which world the cutscene and gameplay we got at E3 2018 had "hints" of the game "not being good", quite frankly. All I remember is some folks saying the gameplay was fake, with zero evidences.

    17. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      @The Master & @JosepHenry Gameplay-wise and/or story-wise?

    18. JosepHenry


      .......... story........

    19. Jango


      Well... That's subjective, so I don't see the problem right now. Unless you're talking Rise of Skywalker levels of bad writen. Then we have a problem. Also, the guy spoiled only the last cutscene, didn't he? Perhaps out of context it sounds bad... I really trust ND, the worst scenario I expect is Uncharted 3 levels of "not as good, but still great". Anyways... I wonder what ND will do about it... 

      Also, I'm 99% sure Joel dies, and if that's the reason people are saying the story is shit, that's really shallow.

    20. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Really hoping it's not even worse and is Last Jedi levels of bad.

      Though for so many people to agree on something being wrong, is concerning.

      Does it seem legit @JosepHenry? The backlash?

    21. Jango


      If it's TLJ levels of writing, it would still be bad. But let's not go as down as RoS, which is objectively worse 😛

      Heck, I just hope it's at least as good as TLoU Part 1. People are likely complaning about one weird decision near the end or an inconclusive ending. Might I add that the SAME thing happened with the first game? 

    22. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Oh, Last Jedi is far worse than Rise of Skywalker. 

      Besides, one little bad thing doesn't get backlash on this scale Jango. Just one of the facts of life. 

    23. Jango


      We shall find out June 19th. I rather see it by myself. I'm not interested in continuing to discuss content I know nothing about. If people are only complaning about the story, I rather take my own conclusions when the game is out, just like I always do. If the gameplay is broken, that's a bigger issue IMO.

      Also, good joke about SW.

  9. What the hell is a Collision Chaos?

    1. Ferno


      the cinnamon swirls in every bite

  10. Sonic bad give like 

    1. Soniman


      Pontaff Baldy mcnosehair cringe give like 

    2. Soniman


      Sonic 06 remember when bad give like 

    3. Zaysho


      The second one is true tho

    4. Soniman


      Did you just out yourself as an 06 fan 🤔

    5. Zaysho


      I haven't played '06 but I'm also tired of people beating that particular dead horse to claim why we can't have anything interesting in this franchise anymore.


      Besides, I'm a ShTH fan.

  11. Finally Marathoning SU Future (as well as the movie) and God they really hammer it home how shitty Pink Diamond  is

    1. Kuzu


      I mean, yea.

  12. Finished FF7R, great game loved it from beginning to end. Didn't mind the ending really I'm interested seeing where it goes 

    1. KHCast


      I’m both interested and worried. But I respect how...bold Square was in going this direction.

  13. Why is Metal Sonic on the cover of Forces?

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      characters people like so old timey sonic fans might be distracted from the fursonas when they see the box

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Because whoever designed the cover art for Forces knew what would make a good Sonic game, and that being honest about Forces would mean making the game look bad.

    3. Lord-Dreamerz


      Why was Chaos-0 in the game & advertisements whatsoever when it added up to nothing?

    4. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      A boss in the game. Old favorite character? 

    5. Kuzu



    6. Perkilator


      He’s facing away from the camera. He realized he’s in a boring game, and now all he can do is look away from everyone who laughs at him.

    7. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      None of that stuff comes even close to the real bafflement here: Why is the Rookie sea form cyan on the cover, when he's red in literally every otHER FRICKIN' PROMO ART HOW DID THEY APPROVE OF THIS

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Supah Berry This one actually makes sense, artistically. It allows for a bit of cohesion between the three payable characters, by making them all shades of blue (even though the avatar is too much on the green side). It separates them from Knuckles and Tails, who are there only because whoever designed the cover knew that Knuckles, Tails and Metal would help to get peoples' attention. 

      The boxart should have really consisted of both Sonics and a bunch of avatar characters, with Infinite looming somewhere. The actual product doesn't sell the idea of the avatar and Wispons at all, and wastes space with characters that shouldn't be there.

    9. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      The box legit makes me sad cuz the thought of a game about Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles leading the revolution against a world spanning Eggman Empire sounds cool as hell, shame it's Sonic and Sonic's Great Adventure With You

    10. The Master

      The Master

      He was a boss you actually fought in the game, along with Zavok. Think we'd rather he be on it rather than Zavok.

    11. Soniman



    12. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      He's speaking for everyone with taste.


    Yall watch this video? What are your thoughts?


    1. Strickerx5


      Think I remember genuinely agree with this a couple of months back but I needed some background noise so I put it on again.

      And yeah, still agree with most of it.

      Especially felt 19:50-20:10

    2. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      4 minutes in, couldn't do it

    3. Kuzu


      You posted it, so what are yours.

    4. Soniman


      I think the general idea is sound and agree with the broad strokes but it's about when he went after Mania Adventures and Overdrive where he lost me because he really gets wrapped up in nitpicky biases there. Overall it's a tad melodramatic  just to get to the point of them hating current Sonic and leaving the franchise 

    5. Kuzu


      I feel the same in regards to his opinion on the web shorts, but I understand where it's coming from since they're representative of the era that he hates about the series.

      I agree with the general idea of the video, just that it comes off as a bit whiny for my tastes l.

  15. Unrelated but I've always been a fan of Eggman
