  1. PPHEW I dont like Crash 1 lol, that game is more frustrating than fun

    1. MightyRay


      I'm currently stuck on Slippery Climb. That level is just mean.

    2. Space☆Yeow


      Crash 1 is Rough with a capital R, especially with its level design and save points. Not finished with Crash 2 (or the first Spyro, for that matter) but they're both much, much better/more accessible.

      Don't even get me started on Road to Nowhere and The High Road. My God, those are two of the absolutely worst platforming levels I have ever played. Fuck those levels, honestly.

      Just thinking about those levels genuinely makes me angry.

    Sonic Forces Final DLC - What is it?

    I didn't even know they were still working on DLC for this. That kinda makes me sad, I'd rather they just get to the next bad game then wallow further in this one.

    My Hero Academia

    Ill watch it if the movie is good, but my expectatinos for anime only movies are very low.
  4. It really amazes me how The Last Jedi holds a 91% (higher than INFINITY WAR) on RT yet literally ALL the highest most popular videos about it on YT are rtired 'hot takes' on why it fails on every concievable level to be a movie with millions of views and likes. Star Wars fans confuse me

    1. Space☆Yeow


      this is not going to go the way you think!

      Have you seen the audience rating though? It's quite low compared to its bretheren. Sometines the public are better critics than the actual critics. 

    3. shdowhunt60


      That's what I go with, there's a pretty clear dissonance between critics and what the audience itself actually feels about something.

      And really? The Last Jedi was shit.

      Honestly, Star Wars has quite a large critical dissonance compared to Marvel.

      Infinity War delivers to all but the most critical and hardcore (and even they are careful how they go about it) as opposed to Star Wars where the public gives more insight, for better or worse, compared to the critics who don’t delve as deeply as they do.

      Probably doesn’t help that Disney ditched the Star Wars Expanded Universe and retconned as uncanon in favor of their own completely original take, whereas they didn’t do that with Marvel Comics and wherea lot more faithful or hands off. That’s definitely a major factor.

      Needless to say,  Disney haven't been handling Star Wars nearly as proper they've treated the MCU.

      I mean, I know many were excited for the possibility that they’d adapt the Thrawn trilogy given how those were (and likely still are) considered the unofficial Episodes VII, VIII, and IX.

      Not getting that went sour with a lot of folks.

    7. Strickerx5


      I think there's also a heavy dissonance in the actual fanbase too. Even outside the hardcore base, you have people (like myself) who watch all of these movies and don't think nearly as long about them as some do. From my experience, these are often the people who love this film as they just see it as a fun, engaging movie.

      It's probably one of those things where your enjoyment factor greatly depends on how invested into the series you are. There are things in the movie that I could absolutely see myself hating if I cared more about these characters but since I don't, those flaws simply aren't that prevalent to me.

      And then there's the actual execution with these Star Wars films just getting pumped out, and the new trilogy not even having some consistent story guy like Feige or Lucas to keep the ship on track. Case in point, us getting Rian Johnson's drek script that spits in the face of continuity with Episode 7 too many times to count.

    Team Sonic Racing - Reveal Trailer

    Sonic Team not touching this gives me a sigh of relief, I'm sure it'll turn out just fine then.
  6. After playing Mega Man 9 and 10 back to back for the frist time im utterly baffeled why 10 gets teh cold shoulder from so many fans, I think its just as good if not a little better than 9 tbh

    1. Harkofthewaa


      Yeah, I like 10 more than 9. Sure, the weapons aren't as broken, but Bass makes up for that. Also, the Wily stages aren't brutally hard.

    2. Maxtiis


      I prefer 9 over 10, but I still like 10 more than many of the other classic Mega Man games. 10 just felt more difficult to me than 9 in a way that wasn't as fun.

  7. Soniman

    could forces be fixed like mania?

    This, no point in salvaging a turd, I rather Sonic Team move on to the next trainwreck then drag this one out

    Channel Awesome Was Not So Awesome

    This channel is definitely dead now like holy shit, Lupa is probably rolling in laughter over how she got the ball rolling on CA's demise. They were already trickling users before but now it's a full blown torrent and now fucking no one is left. This site is fucking done
  9. chikariko is a great ship, anyonee who even knows what that is breathe if you agree

    1. Celestia


      Damn right.

    2. JosepHenry


      *checks the ship on Google*

      HELL YES

    Sonic Mania Adventures (Part 5 Available Now)

    Mania continues to be the glimmering hope of this franchise. What can I say, it was brilliant and expressive and I can't wait to see more
  11. I don't find the memes gut bustingly hilarious or anything. Just nice to have at least one aspect of this franchise that isn't depressingly shitty (the games) or draining (the fandom) and gives some levity to all where we can just make mostly innocent jokes about this franchise. Telling then to stop making light because the franchise is bad and doesn't "deserve" to make that kinda humor till its good just doesn't seem to really accomplish much but make a more depressing atmosphere instead
  12. Do the PR team make fun of any of Sonic's bad games outside of decade(s) old stuff like R, Sonic 06 and Shadow and whatever? Things way past the point of relevancy so its no real harm in taking the pisss out of them on occasoin since everyone else does anyway? Like if they were making jokes about how shitty Forces was that'd be one thing sicne the game is new, but they havent really?
  13. How is the PR team in any position to fix anything though? They dont have anything to do with maaking the games shitty
  14. Sonic is gonna be crap regardless might as well have some fun with it.
  15. Ive been drawing digitially for over 4 years now and not once as anything ive drawn got over 1000 notes/likes whatever on twitter or tumblr. Its been incredibly discouriaging that the only thing I can do to really not think about it is just go full pessimist and accept its never going to happen EVER for me, ive been constantly trying and ive come up dry and im sick of it. I draw these big complicated pictures hoping to finally get it for me and nope nothing, I guess I just suck then. My friends who also draw are easily able to do it and it just makes it worse because I feel like even more of a talentless loser, sometimes it makes me wanna give up drawing entierly lol

    1. Nast


      your first problem there is that you're under the assumption that these likes have any sort of importance or reflect your merit as an artist. or are you making art just to be noticed? don't take that as an attack because that's not necessarily an invalid reason but it'll make it that much harder for you to be happy with doing art.

      as far as your skill goes, you're not bad and you've certainly gotten better as you've gone on, but there's still plenty of room to improve. it's natural for it to take a while to happen. you're not a "talentless loser", that's for sure

    2. Soniman


      I dont do it just get noticed but its just kinda discouraging is all. Im not saying I DESERVE it or anything, just be nice to have it happen once (LITERALLY JUST ONCE I WOULDNT CARE AFTER THAT). TBH lately ive just accepted it wont happen in the near future and just concentrate on drawing for myself rather then others and thats been working out nicely but once in awhile ill still angst about it,. But yeah, thaks for the advice!

    3. Space☆Yeow


      I can't say I feel as bitterly about it as you do, but I do feel the same way sometimes. I guess I try not to think about it to much because I don't necessarily draw a lot (though part of that is because I sometimes hit a creative wall on what to draw) and there can be some positives of being an obscure artist (though that's not to say I'm a fan of my art on average getting single-digit likes/reblogs on tumblr).

      I will say though that it's actually part of the reason why recently I've moved away from my series of platformer concept art (which I tried to put a lot of detail into in their original drawings), and focused more on character design in recent years and more simple environments/backgrounds.

      Tbh, sometimes I feel like the opposite has happened to me. I get lots of notes on my stuff but I always feel like I started gaining attention before I or my art skills were truely ready for it. I had like a long 10-or-so year plan and things kind of exploded within 5 and now I'm always scrambling and feeling like I'm "doing it live" instead. when I was just starting out I actually liked the quietness and single digit numbers because there was less pressure to not screw up or get my proportions just right etc, so behind the scenes these days I'm always sorta being hard on myself to improve quickly, to feel like I've "earned" the attention my stuff often gets.
