      I scrolled through his content from the past few days and I see a tweet where he laughs about losing 1000 followers over one tweet

      The tiny shred of benefit of the doubt I could give is that teenager COULD refer to an 18 or 19 year-old, and the fact that Japan has a lower age of consent.

      But even with that considered, the maturity disparity between a 40+ year-old and a young adult still makes it super gross. Hopefully he was just horsing around and didn't realise what a massive faux pas such a joke is in western society.

      And if not then not then oh well , throw him in dumb Sonic music contributor jail with Jacques and Hunnid-P lol.

  2. I make a habit out of buying/playing games of whatever Smash newcomer gets in so this is my first time playing Minecraft despite it being a thing for a decade and I'm kinda surprised how much I'm enjoying it lol

      Ew, that means you played Sonic games. *shudder*

  3. Can't stop thinking about how the only main Sonic game we got in the 8 years between now and SLW was Forces abd it was a half baked shallow 3 hour experience. Sonic game development has slowed to a crawl and there's nothing to show for it 

    1. Miragnarok

      Miragnarok

      Basically, the Nintendo approach gone horribly wrong.

    2. pppp

      pppp

      That's why I just roll my eyes everytime they try to reassure us that "they're not rushing the games development anymore, quality over quantity".

      Bollocks. We have neither quality nor quantity. Might as well bring back the production method from the early to mid 2000s at this point, at least back then being a Sonic fan wasn't depressingly boring cause nothing exciting is ever going on between the 5 years between each game.

      It wouldn't be so bad if they at least filled the time between each game with re-releases that we've asked for a million times(Colors is 10 years old this year, are you going to give us a 10th anniversary HD remaster? No? OK then) or make a smaller spinoff here and there that is not just another kart racing game.

      For me that's the worst part: Being a Sonic fan right now means we play a mediocre to terrible game and talk about how disappointing it is for like 3 months tops, and then it's back to spending 5 years waiting with nothing to tide us over whatsoever aside from another Sumo kart racing game.

      In short: Being a Sonic fan right now is the most boring thing in the world.

      You’re forgetting the comics.

      @\Miragnarok What do the comics have to do with game development.

      EDIT: Ignore this comment, didn't realize that was a reply towards pppp.

  4. Though it's pretty obvious to anyone how unfortunate the state of Sonic is currently. Games  like Crash 4 really highlight to me just how utterlbehind the games are in so many ways. Crash levels are vibrant full of life and  interesting design, cutscenes are beautifully animated with a competent story and good character handling. It's not perfect but you can tell the people who made this really GET Crash and deeply care about making a good entry to the series. Games like Forces feel so utterly sterile and soulless by comparison it really is an eye opener just how much this franchise is missing.

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      I think about how there are 5 playable characters in crash 4 often. 

    2. Soniman

      Soniman

      AND they're all really well done, have the exact right amount of focus, all feel similar enough to Crash but different  enough to offer totally unique but still fun gameplay experiences AND this was their first serious attempt at something like this like DUDE, LOL

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      In between Mario Odyssey the new Ratchet games and this it seems the entire platformer genre has teamed up to mock every argument made in this community for the past 10 years 

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Oh good, I'm not the only one who's had this thought running in the back of my mind lately lol. A part of me is admittedly happy that games like Crash 4 and the new Ratchet are a thing as they really do put in bold just how far back this series currently is.

      If the next game rolls around and isn't a significant step forward from Forces, it's going to be fucking embarrassing for everyone involved.

      I love Mania and everything but I've been hungering for a quality 3D Sonic for ages

    6. Ryannumber1Scarer

      Ryannumber1Scarer

      It frustrates me seeing how much love Crash 4 has for all aspects of the series, and it doesn’t matter how obscure or even if it’s technically non canon. We got villains from Twinsanity and onwards cameoing, we have references everywhere to future games like Twinsanity. We even get fun references to Titans and Mind Over Mutant. Even the Evil Twins, villains who near no one cares about gets a slightly revamped design and cameo.

      and meanwhile, Sonic’s lore is so stuck in it’s way with pointless bullshit that we can’t even get cameos of Team Hooligan anymore, because of the Classic/Modern divide, and SEGA locks off random parts of the franchise whenever they deem it, even when they still have the rights to those shows and characters (AoStH, SatAM). The most fan service we can muster is seeing a gimped Classic Sonic for the umpteenth time*. Even half of the modern villains/characters have been just shoved into a corner to be forgotten about, Infinite being the latest addition to the list.

      *Not taking Mania into account

      Strickerx5

      Honestly, this is a really bad thing. He’s going to be fine and the moment he’s cleared of it, he’s just going to downplay the ever living fuck out of it... more so than now at least.

      Yeah he does that in excess already so nothing would really change. At least hell get damaged lungs out of it 

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      The difference now is that he'll have a "direct" reason to do so which some will latch onto when downplaying the crisis. "If our old president can handle it then it most be a hoax."

      People will see this as confirmation and take their efforts to the extreme. If there's one thing that has proven true throughout this entire 4 year period, it's that things can and will always get worse.

    5. Marcello

      Marcello

      These people don't need confirmation. They're just convinced it is the way they think, because they're fucking dumb.

      If he recovers, he'll downplay the virus and have all his claims "confirmed."

      If he dies, he'll never answer to his crimes, and his supporter base would riot and claim it to be an assassination by the "libtards."

    7. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      I'm more worried about the ones that did or think that they did. There are a lot of stupid people in this country and the ones that can have their minds pushed in certain directions easily are going to be important come November.

      I'd like to believe that his base population is set in stone at this point and that no one would believe anything coming out of it anymore, but nothing this country has done... ever, leads me to believe that's the case.

    12. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      @Strickerx5 So what if he dies?

    13. Jango

      Jango

      He won't die, just like how Bolsonaro didn't. The sane people of this country didn't believed he was actually infected. Everything felt extremelly fishy from the start (how he was tested for covid in early march but didn't wanted to reveal the results). But when he finally revealed that he had the virus (this time in July), he immediately began the chloroquine propaganda. Which, BTW, it's against the law here in Brazil (no one in the government is allowed to advertise any kind of drug or treatment, unless it has great scientific evidence). But laws don't apply here ever since Bolsonaro became president... Unless you're against him, then the law works.

  6. Always wanted to try Yakuza so I bought 0 and gonna play the games in chronological order (so next game will be Kiwami which remakes the first game) just did the first chapter last night and I'm already into it

      Lol I've been doing that just recently myself. I'm on Kiwami 2.

  7. TWEWY is now  beaten. Great game, I can see why its a cult classic 

  8. I know I should be used to the anime community being openly racist for the most part nut seeing so many people react in anger and disgust at Toonami's BLM message.....really hurts? Like so many are mad at this one minute add with a simple message of "don't kill minorities" and making jokes and jeers and like....this is what people like me mean to this community and how little were valued that their anime takes priority above everything? Maybe I'm looking to deep into it and just need to step back but man....anime fans are vile

      DanJ86

      I don't know. Some of the words in the ad feel iffy to me. I get what they're trying to say but it comes across differently to me. In my opinion, they just didn't do it correctly. But that's just me.

    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      The Anime community has always been filled with a bunch of racist assholes. This is just exposing the filth for what it is.

    4. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      It's really nerd culture in general. You see these "anti-woke" comments whenever a piece of their beloved media even references things like BLM.

      Actually scratch that, it's society is in general. These are all just subsections of a population that historically doesn't give a fuck about anything that isn't directly hurting them.

    5. Wraith

      Wraith

      Keep an eye on the people who saw the legitimate pain in this status and and reacted with skepticism. 

    6. Soniman

      Soniman

      I think the worst part is all the mental gymnastics and denial they'll go through when you confront them on it. It's always "woke" this and "this isn't the place for politics" even though killing innocent people isn't a political thing, and "wow way to pander" when we just want to be acknowledged as people with rights. "BLM is a terrorist organization how can you expect us to support looters, rioters,","ALL Lives Matter" etc etc. IT goes on and on 

      The ad is barely one minute long and they act like this??  it's just so bereft of any self awareness I desperately want to believe they're trolling because the alternative is way more disturbing to me 

    7. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      The sad truth is that these types of people have no self-awareness; they want to  believe everything is alright and live in a fantasy world, because it's inconvenient for them to confront ideas like this. They'll believe any sort of propaganda that threatens their way of life because of it. And will lash out when confronted with the reality of the situation.

      I'm sorry that it hurts you so much to see this, because it's never a good feeling to understand how little people value your existence but people like this do exist in every community on this planet, even in the mainstream. It is exactly why these people exist that these messages need to keep being said. 

    8. Tornado

      Tornado

      The thing that really stands out to me is that the "KEEP POLITICS OUT OF MY ANIME" bitchfits after such an incredibly benign statement from Toonami is that anime (though it definitely depends on genre) tends to be far more politically charged than the modern Western videogames that the same CHUDS rally around keeping pure.

       

       

       

      Did these assholes throw a fit back when FMA 2003 was running? What about when Stand Alone Complex was shown in reruns for over a decade? Or even any of the more abstract but still very political stuff like Death Note, Code Geass or Eureka Seven? The fucking network has shown more than just Inuyasha, Dragonball and MHA for the past twenty years.

    9. Tornado

      Tornado

      Plus, and I'm sure a lot of these assholes only tune in on Saturdays but still, this is the same programming block that aired multiple seasons of The Boondocks and Black Dynamite for fuck's sake.

    10. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Naw, because these type of people have convinced themselves that Japan is just some magical land that has no "Sjw politics" whatsoever, and don't look any deeper into these Anime beyond generic anime boy punching someone or generic anime girl with tits and ass.

      It's not just ignorance, it's willful ignorance. They are desperate to convince themselves of this fact and hate when you actually point it out. 

    11. Soniman

      Soniman

      Lol these people are more willing to stand up for their right to creep over little loli anime girls because "they're not real" then thry are for poc being killed in the streets :x

  9. Been playing TWEWY and I've been enjoying the game all except for the end of week boss fights. On the second one and they're just.....really not fun to fight at all so far. Really annoying

  10. People hating on gay representation in media under the guise of it being  "woke sjw pandering" so it's now okay to completely shit on it for existing,  is used so often that I have to start wondering just how much of this is just thinly veiled homophobia. I know just because you portray a minority group in your work of fiction that doesn't make it immune to criticism and/or should automatically receive unfiltered praise but you really have to start wondering when this kind of thing happens EVERY single time 

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Me: so does that mean up until now they’ve been straight pandering? And kids are mature enough to see those interactions daily and not see them as political?

      Them: well that’s different cause we’re the majority and it’s natural 

    2. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Gay people exist. Ergo, they're going to show up in fiction sometimes.

      This shouldn't be a difficult concept to get around.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Same vibe I got when Craig of the Creek was announced and saw a lot of comments along the lines of “why is he black?” The fact that you’re asking that is part of the problem. We need to get to the point in society where representation of minorities isn’t automatically met with questions or seen as some promotion opportunity. It needs to be seen as normal like it is.

    4. Soniman

      Soniman

      Speaking of Craig I saw people on Twitter getting heated because a character mentions pronouns in passing and not even as a focus point and people still got mad like....how transparent can you be guys? Lol

    5. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      This the result of a society that's basically been conditioned to internalize "straight white male" as the "default" way of life. It's been so internalized that when there isn't media like that, it ruins the common perception people have. 

      I really wouldn't pay these people any mind; some people do argue from good faith, but it's kind of transparent when someone is just a racist, a homophobe, and a transphobe or anything in between. So fuck'em.

  11. Yep final MMZ boss fucking blows. Not a great way to end this game

      Blue Blood

      It's an anti-climax too. Shit just don't fun. I'm glad that they brought back the Final Zone boss for act 1 and made a new boss for act. Hotaru Hi-Watt was cool in Mania though.

      Guys he was talking about Mega Man Zero

  12. Trying out the Zero/ZX collection finally, starring with Z1 I forgot how much I love that GBA asthetic, reminds me a lot of Metroid Fusion actually, I'm also fond of the mission based structure so far (just beat red desert guy in my last session)

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Not only will you prepare yourself for some damn good gameplay thanks to Inti Creates, but the Zero games also have the best story in the franchise.

  14. Giving it some thought I think the reason I'm harsh on the X series is because it's often touted as an improvement and vastly better than Classic Mega Man and like...yeah X1/X4 are because they knew how to iterate and improve the formula, level design and controls in satisfying ways but that's still only 2 out of out of the six where I feel it does so successfully. As a result I think Classic is overall the stronger series because it's quality is a lot more consistent. Even it's worst titles like 5/7/8 are just kinda bland and never frustrated me to like the worst X games did.

    Let's not even get into the writing which X just completely fumbles across almost all the games, again  for a series that wanted to introduce a darker more serious tone (nothing wrong with that) it's atempts are very bad and hard to take seriously (Sigma is just as laughable in his come back as Wily but Wily isn't meant to be a serious Villian). It sucks because they're so many potentially interesting things to explore and thry don't really do much with it and instead falls into a lot of lame anime tropes.

    1. Sean

      Sean

      I don't think Capcom ever truly understood how to evolve X beyond the first game. 2 and 3 were complicated with collectathon mentality where paths, endings, or even upgrades were blocked off to you if you didn't collect everything or in the order the game wants you to. 4 was a deliberate back-to-basics game but starting with 5 they began emphasizing gimmicky, not-fun level design that only serves to slow you down, frustrate you, and repeat repetitive tasks and boss fights over and over. The first half of the series may have fumbled at times, but the second half is complete trash and some of the worst Mega Man has ever been. I don't think Sonic has ever had a game as bad as X6.

      Sigma also blows for the reasons you mentioned. At least Wily is fun; there's nothing entertaining about Sigma coming back over and over because he has the personality and motivations of a twig.

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Sometimes I feel like X1 being as good as it was had to be by complete accident. In reality they basically fixed my issues with the classic games which was faster movement and wall clinging

      You see what would make Sigma interesting if the dove into the fact that he wasn't evil by choice but it's the maverick virus that made him that way. So at least Zero can feel some sort of guilt every time he has to face him. 

    3. Soniman

      Soniman

      I totally agree with them not knowing what to do so or WHY people loved X1 so much so they just added unnecessary gimmicks and cryptic side objectives to "change it up". Like they were afraid the criticisms of classic mega man games being to similar would return so they shoved in unfun gimmick levels to change up the core gameplay and stuff like X6's nightmare system or the time limit of X5 for the sake of being different.

      Honestly though If they made X9 today I think they could probably do right by it now that they don't have to worry about trying to stay relevant and realize why people liked the best of those games in the first place 

  15. Mega Man X really has two good games in its whole ass line up. 

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      ....Which ones.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      worst Mega Man series

    3. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      X1 and X4. But i'd argue X2 is good not as great as the others but still good 

    4. Sean

      Sean

      Just kidding. I forgot about ZX

    5. Sean

      Sean

      In seriousness my attitude toward X2 and 3 has softened since I played them again last year. I think 3 is better than 2 even

    6. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I'd probably say X4 is my personal favorite. 

    7. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I tried i really tried to like X3 but it's so bad. 

    8. Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      HOnestly, I'd say 1,2,4 and 8 are all good.

    9. Ryannumber1Scarer

      Ryannumber1Scarer

      Same honestly. X1 and X4 are good, X2 is alright enough, X5 is tolerable, X3, X6, X7, and X8 are terrible.

    10. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I should really give the whole series a play.

    11. Adamabba

    12. Soniman

      Soniman

      X8 wins award for the game I wanted to like with all my heart but it's just so bad in ways that I can't forgive. Specifically it's level design being mostly shitty gimmick levels. It only gets let off easy because the last two games were worse.

      Anyway X1/X4 are the only games I can call unequivocally good without any asterisks. X2 is ffffffffiiiiiine but so unremarkable in every way and doesn't really improve on X1 in anyway. X3 I actually kinda like but it has a lot of problems, same with X5 actually. The rest are poop.

    1. Teospooker

      Teospooker

      I understand, when they took over the Wiki dominions it was the worst of times.

  18. It's really sad how bad the gamming community wants the TLOU2  to fail. It's one of the highest rated games on metacritic yet people have convinced themselves all these reviews are paid because obviously why would someone like a game they don't....despite them playing the game and they did not. I really don't understand the mental gymnastics people jump through to justify their own hatred of a game they didn't wanna like anyway 

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I personally don't care about the game, because it's not my kind of game.

      It's easier to just ignore a thing instead.

    2. Teospooker

      Teospooker

      Just like with the first game, if someone manages to enjoy it despite its problems is fine by me, but claiming the title is flawless and only deserves 10/10, then your opinion doesn't have my attention anymore.

       

      Though i find it funny that this is the game that has managed to break both notorious biased gaming journalists like Jason Schreier and even ResetEra

    3. KHCast

      “How do people go through mental gymnastics to not like a game???”

      People don’t like naughty dog, and thus don’t want to support them. It’s not that hard to grasp 

      review bombing it is dumb, but that’s not the same crowd criticizing the company itself for valid reasons. 
       

      it’s funny tho how people praised jason for his EA article on crunch because societally were programmed to hate EA, but he does the same for Naughty Dog and suddenly it’s some controversy and plot to tear down poor TLOU2.

      I see more people happily joining in tearing down ND then defending them so yeah.

      Absolutely not defending crunch btw and not defending ND I just think it's funny gamers wanna start boycotting shit now  when it's ND on the chopping block because now they're morally justified in not buying a game they walready disliked  due to "leaks" and get the moral high ground on those that still are getting it. 

    5. KHCast

      I mean what is there to defend outside “well they make good games”? The group hating the games because “ew lgbt representation” or some dumb story shit is not the same. And unless it can be directly proven, I really wish people would stop conflating the two as if it’s truth. Also people boycotted games before this? They didn’t just start doing it because some ND bias. They did it for Star Wars battlefront 2 also.

  19. It sucks being a Pokemon fan in a time currently the franchise is seen with such utter disdain by nearly everyone in said Fandom that you want to just have a normal discussion about SWSH but it's fucking impossible because you HAVE to get a rant about how shitty the game is like I get it, I understand, I understood months ago when you were saying the same things when the game came out, I just wanna talk about the actual game contents talk about the features of the new dlc etc but it's so hard because the pessimism is present everywhere online. People are more than entitled to their opinions but lord for a game about about connecting with others never did I want to just disconnect from thus Fandom entirely. It's all like this on Twitter, YouTube, Reddit. It's just mad tiring 

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      I realize the irony saying this on a Sonic Fourm but damn at least Sonic fans take a break in hating on the modern stuff every now and then and talk about the things they like or put all that energy into creating shit like fan art and fan games. It ain't 24/7 

    2. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Pokemon fans are still new to it I guess. SWSH is the first time they didn't get a full Pokedex and they are not accustomed to that sort of disappointment.

      Us Sonic fans are used to not getting what we want! So I feel like - as much as we gripe about bad games - we eventually shrug it off and hope for something better next time.

    3. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      Besides, the hate Sonic gets is marginally more justified than Pokemon's. These people should be thankful they're getting "complete", playable games at all.

      Sorry, that's not an option in this case

      @Soniman As someone in a similar position. Just stay off social media dude. As unfortunate as it is, this is going to be the climate for this series for a while. You just gotta take your mind off it and endure it until the wave passes. It is the unfortunately consequence with such a large and diverse fandom, and when the games much extremely controversial decisions, it invites....the special cases. So just...endure.

      Newer Pokemon games seem like an obvious step down in a lot of respects so I feel for the fans in some way but their reaction seems disproportionate for the content on offer. The bitching is out of control for a franchise that is generally quality despite some steps backward.

    6. Kuzu

      It's basically what happens when ANY major video game franchise takes some type of radical shift, no matter how minor it's perceived to be. You might feel it's ultimately insignificant, but to someone else they might feel it's a great impact on their personal enjoyment and lash out about the change. People SHOULD be reasonable, because it's a fucking video game at the end of the day. But since a lot of us have been in the Sonic fanbase for as long as we have, people unfortunately, will never be completely rational about this sort of thing and this is the result. 

  20. I thought this dude was chased off Twitter for having bad Sonic takes but here he is again with another

      @Windy and Ripply Most fans enjoy Tyson Hesse's work, and he's been one of the series' biggest contributors in recent years.

      So Twip calling his work "corporate shilling" makes him look like a huge asshole.

      Twip has always had a bad rep for his shitty hot takes that he refuses to stfu about and insists on tossing out on the internet.

      man i can't imagine complaining about a few intentionally goofy faces on these cartoon characters after the series spent so long barely even animating the faces.

    9. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Yeah, definitely not TWIP's finest hour.

    10. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      I wouldn't blame Tyson for making silly faces, he animates that way and it makes for a laugh.

      Its the twitter's fault for going "Ha ha ha, this face is funny, share it 400 times".

      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.

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

       

      calm the fuck down, tristan

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Wow 
       

      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

      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

      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...

      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.

    14. Original Character

      Original Character

      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.

      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.

  22. 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.

      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

      What happened?

    9. Polkadi~☆

      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. Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      Demonic Frenzy Ultima

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

      Jack out of the comics!

      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

      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

      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

      Kuzu

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

  23. 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. 

  24. 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

      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. Spookilator

      Spookilator

      Ugh. Don’t remind me.
