  1. You ever think about what if they were real?

      You don't think they are real?

    2. Soniman


      I want to believe but I don't wanna be hurt again

      You can convince yourself they're real if dismiss objective evidence by saying you know it in your heart.

  2. Alright Sonic, it's your turn, step on up...

      Sonic Adventure: Open world edition

      And 2D Sonic game in 2.5D style, let's go.

  3. Yeah I don't like it. Give ORAS some credit when they remade they really REMADE it, they changed and improved the story gave fresh redesigns to ALL the significant characters, actually nice looking Chibi graphics from what can be expected on the 3DS. But this is just soooo lame? I wanted a SWSH-Styled remake with wild areas and no random encounters but..no none of that it doesn't even feel like it's part of the same Gen as SWSH. And I know they obviously did that because GF didn't make this so they probably had to be super conservative but even as just a pure graphics update thus looks really LAME. Links Awakening looked fantastic, this is a Switch game but you wouldn't know from looking at it, looks like a Chinese mobile game. So yeah I'm quite disappointed by this, our one-shot at a great remake down the drain for Gen IV fans. Pokémon Legends looks interesting at least, looking forward to learn more of that
  4. Pokémon fans....it's time

      Oh boy, I can't wait to see how much they botch the brilliant Gen IV games with these remakes.

    2. Soniman


      Thats the spirit

      I can't wait to see more news about Pokémon Unite! I hope the whole presentation is about it!

    4. Bobnik


      it's time for pokemon heads to get cocky

      Well after last week's Direct being a let down, both Pokemon and Sony airing their own dissappointment filled presentations is a nice consolation prize

  5. Quality isn't a factor when making these collections for me I'm more concerned with preservation. Worrying about quality is what got us in this situation where Sega refuses to port a lot of these games. Plus you could do a lot worse than 3D Blast anyway
  6. The trend of race bending anime characters (almost always black) comes up now and then on Twitter and it never not bugs me. As a black person I understand the need for representation but like....race changing characters that already represent an entirely different culture people or Japan (because let's be real it almost always always is anime characters) makes me uncomfortable I guess? Characters from MHA, KNY, Mob Psycho, etc who have Japanese names and live in Japan having their race changed mmm...idk man it just rubs me the wrong way. Like I'm not sure what it accomplishes as it doesn't actually create more representation because the characters are always gonna be the race they are, but people love to pat themselves on the back because they turned Josuke's skin dark 🤷‍♀️


    1. PublicEnemy1


      Honestly, I don't mind race-bending as long as the artist isn't a pompous douche. Some artists just want to see what characters look like if they were their own skin color, and there's nothing wrong with a little personal interpretation. Though I do think that creating your own character with a different skin color is a lot cooler than simply race-bending.

    2. DanJ86


      That sounds fair. If the artist in question is patting themselves on the back, that does sound like what a pompous douche would do.

    3. Kuzu


      Well I mean, the reverse is just as common to be fair (Still mad about the whole Nessa issue)

    4. Tornado


      Race bending? The Netflix Avatar show just sounds worse and worse. 

    5. Soniman


      Their term not mine!

      Eh, not surprised it's a thing when Western culture collides with a medium (which is part of a larger collective sphere of media culture) that isn't too great with its racial representation. It can be argued that's to do with how different the ratio of racial groups is in Japan as a whole, but that's a whole different kettle of fish I'm not too versed on.

      Now, the people who accuse others of race-bending LEGO characters (as in LEGO-owned characters, not the licenced IPs)? Those people deserve the ire they get.

  7. So with the rumors of a Sonic Collection in the card I started thinking about how this would be done, what games should be included or left out , how many "volumes" and so on, I kinda wanted to think about it as realistically as possible and go by what would make the mist sense from my point of view. Classic Collection So basically we have the usual Sonic 1, 2, CD, Sonic 3 and Knuckles is omitted as usual as heartbreaking as it is. Ideally I'd love for 1-CD be the Taxman ports but I know Sega has avoided porting them for...whatever reason so the Sega Ages ports of 1 and 2 would work fine (not sure about CD as it doesn't have one). Have every single Game Gear shoved on here because they take up no space and would be relatively easy. Would be nice to give them proper Wide-screen and improved resolution but I highly doubt they'd put the effort of doing so (I I shine the demand for a properly upscaled Sonic Blast is very low) 3D Blast I say font bother having two versions and just use the Saturn version with a soundtrack switch option and you're good. And now for the lost Sonic Gems. R and Fighters are a must (with possible online functionality) and ALSO SegaSonic and Knuckles Chaotix since they're the rarest of the rare and (despite Chaotix sucking a fat one) deserve to be preserved Oh right and lastly have Sonic Spinball and Mean Bean Machine of course. This collection is pretty clear cut honestly and I don't think you'd have to much trouble fitting these games onto a disk...the next one though. Adventure Collection Here's where things get more difficult. I want to say SA1, 2, Heroes and Shadow should be on here but I don't know if it'd be feasible. I'm willing to cut Shadow but I feel like it needs to be there since it's more or less a attempted "epilpgue" to this era so it'd make the whole thing feel more "complete". In addition to that we have the Advance series, plus Battle, Pocket Adventure and maybe Pinball Party? I don't really care either way for that one. Don't use the crappy DX version for SA1, just use the dreamcast version and properly remaster it, having the extra features DX brought brought over to it, SA2 can use either version it doesn't really matter, Heroes and Shadow use the GameCube version. This might be ambitious but possibly having a Chao Garden side mode where you're given this "hub" for your Chao and you send them across the games that have Gardens and Tiny Gardens, throw in online functionality so you can interact with your friends Chao, would be cool. Boost Collection This is the collection of games that were responsible for bringing Sonic "back" with this new gameplay style that went on to define him for over a decade, I thought it'd be most appropriate to include those games in one collection Unleashed, Colors and Generations are the big three here, Forces not included obviously because it can already be played on modern consoles. Unleashed and Colors I'd say both need straight up remaster. Give us Unleashed that runs at a stable 30fps and Colors at 60, I think Gens is probably good as is though. Rush and Rush Adventure are also required. They'd have to maybe rehaul those games due to the nature of the dual screens but if they can get Rush running on Wii U it shouldn't be to hard. Colors DS and Gens 3DS are big maybes though whether or not they should be included So those are my ideas for a series Collections but that still leaves out 06, SLW the Storybook games, Riders, Rivals and Chronicles, if anyone can think of a way to include those in one of the aforementioned collections or one of their very own be my guest. I imagine if Sega actually did this a lot of games would still be left out so I choose the most likely candidates
  8. Sonic Forces should've just been repackaged as a Warriors game to be honest I would play the hell out of a Sonic musou 

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      play as all of sonics shitty friends to take on massive armies of all those eggmans robots


      my god this is a goat tier idea

    2. PublicEnemy1


      Hell, we should think of weapons all the characters could use, just for shits and giggles.

      I'll come up with some myself.

      Sonic: Shoes/Caliburn/Werehog

      Tails: Arm Cannon (from Battle) and various gadgets 

      Amy: Piko Piko Hammer (obviously)

      Knuckles: Fists/Dual Swords

      Shadow: Chaos Attacks/Sword

      Blaze: Pyrokinesis/Rapier

      Cream: Cheese

      Any other ideas?

    3. Soniman


      Keep the OC character with all the Wispons too since they're the main character abd they usually have the largest moveset

    4. Dejimon11


      Sonic Forces prequel that takes place during the 6 month war

    5. Kuzu


      Bro, a Sonic Musou would be the dopest shit ever. 

    6. Dejimon11


      Tracker had the right idea 

    7. Jingilator


      Hell, the various concept designs for Infinite could make for some underling soldiers of Infinite.

  9. I've been hankering to play Sojic but the only games I have conveniently close are Forces, Mania and TSR so I fire up Forces, start a new file since I haven't played in like three years and yep this still sucks lol

    1. Soniman


      Every characters feels like a heavy stone but that's also slippery not one of them is fun to play as so I'm kinda glad the levels are so short AND automated so you're barely actually playing them 

    2. Thigolf


      The physics in that game are really something else.

  10. Personally I'd like maps based on the giant mazes or ravine heck I'm surprised it wasn't in the base game to begin with
  11. Ian turned Silver, Amy, Cream, Omega etc from characters I didn't like or cared about for into some of my favorites so as someone who was already more sympathetic to the D6 then most I'm looking forward to what he does with them as the series goes on
  12. Which sucks because that was like the main hook of the game or...... I guess more like it's main identity people recognize it by like the sea is with WW. But there's nothing to discover that the game doesn't guide you towards, no mini dungeons no other towns. Just a mini game island or two, the pumpkin tavern, the thundercloud and goddess cube locations you find by exploring the land anyway. And yeah it was just not fun even moving around in it because of those controls. If I was Nintendo I'd just shrink the entire sky area by 50 percent because there's so much empty useless space anyway nothing would really be lost besides getting out of the sky quicker
  13. Skyward Sword's motion controls work nicely with the sword imo but in nearly every other instance I find it annoying, the bird being the most egregious case because it demands your attention for navigating the most barren nothing over world ever. At least WW had the decency to do most of the work for you. The swimming also similarly so but at least there's much less of it
  14. BOTW existing probably will help Skyward Sword because instead of people being terrified of it being the new series direction it can just be judged as a wholly unique quirky game that is just all Dungeon-like in design with the appropriate QOL changes

    1. Wraith


      Yeah a lot of the heat it got at release was just people trying to make sure more games like it didn't come out lmao

    2. Soniman


      Exactly. Actually same thing with 3D World and Oddessy now that I think about it.
