  1. LOL TSSZ IS SHUTTING DOWN?

      See? Protesting does cause positive change.

    2. Celestia

      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

      TheOcelot

      Yeah, he won't be missed.

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

    5. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      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.

      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...

    12. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Was that last line supposed to be ironic? XD

    13. Tornado

      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.

    15. KHCast
    16. Stay at Home Ultima

      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.

      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~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      To answer your question:

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

    8. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      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. 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.

    11. Jack at Home
    12. Jack at Home

      Jack at Home

      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.

  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

      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

      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

      TheOcelot

      Earlier than expected. Damage control, maybe 🤔

    2. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      What was even the point of the delay??

    3. Thigolf

      Thigolf

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

    4. Jango

      Jango

      Oh boy, my last status got ninja'd

    5. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

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

    6. Kuzu

      Kuzu

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

    7. Ryannumber1gamer
    8. Jango

      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

      Jango

      You got spoiled I assume?

    2. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Oh, this I've got to hear.

    3. Soniman

      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

      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

      Jango

      We got?

    8. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Yeah, at E3 2018.

    9. Jango

      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

      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

      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

      JosepHenry

      Ok I saw them what the fuck why

    16. Jango

      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

      JosepHenry

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

    19. Jango

      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

      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

      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.

      Did you just out yourself as an 06 fan 🤔

    5. Zaysho

      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

      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

      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

      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

      Kuzu

      Because "ZOMG, METAL SONIC U GUIZE LIEK HIM RITE?" 

    6. Perkilator

      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.

    1. Strickerx5

      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

      Kuzu

      You posted it, so what are yours.

    4. Soniman

      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

      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

      Jack at Home

      I watched the full thing and verdict...

      I love it! A LOT of fuckin' effort and passion is put into it, there is a point if you watch it until the very end, which is, the fandom can be veeeery dark and creepy, and mad, but also very genuine and important in a positive way, to help contribute the series raise again. I totally agree, I tend to ignore the fandom but truth is, there is both light and dark, it's best to accept both sides.

    5. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Shipments came early to prepare for April 12, and the current state of things mean that shops want to push out their stock now before they inevitably close down. No street dates, just come and get your copy when they arrive.

      SE is encouraging this, as they say their shipments are coming whenever they come and are hands-off after that.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer

      I wish I could have it early. I've been keeping my eye on my local supermarket on the off chance they got it early, but no luck yet.

      I ordered the deluxe version on Amazon over a week ago so uhh hopefully it gets here on time lol 

  22. You can't have a big s game release anymore without a "why x game is disappointment" hot take video accompaning it with hundreds of thousands of views, like I swear it's a requirement at this point

      Strickerx5

      Another effect of the epidemic it seems. Guess it really can't be helped.

      Tbh, was thinking about holding off on the game all together until the PS5 as it'll like run a lot better there. What's another few months at this point? lol

    2. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I wish they would've just admitted it's due to COVID-19 tbh.

      Ugh, not again. 

  24. After playing Galaxy 1 I honestly don't know where to place it on my ranking (in short I think it's fantastic). But what I wanna ask you guys is how you feel it ranks with the sequel?

    1. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      The sequel makes a lot of sacrifices to presentation to make a tighter designed game. I didn't really care for that though because part of the fun of Galaxy was the presentation and the novelty of it all. Making an otherwise samey sequel with those knobs turned down didn't sit well with me.

      Higher imo. While the sequel certainly has tighter levels, the sheer originality and atmosphere first presented in 1 can't be overstated. At the time, it really did feel like a revolution for the genre. While, 2 came (and while it was fucking great) and just continued it.

      Also, those storybook sessions are top tier and I will not hear otherwise. Trading out Rosalina for fucking patrick star was one of the worst decisions Nintendo has ever made with the series imo. Absolutely killed the great vibe the first game had.

      Valid points but I will  not have Lubba slander in this status

      I like 2 more. It's awesome level design is more important to me than 1's atmosphere

      i never played 2, but the fact that they got rid of the atmosphere that made Galaxy my favorite Mario game really turned me off from trying it out

      No Lubba slander? Good to thing I only speak the truth when I say he's ugly and forgettable. 

      Galaxy 2 is tighter than the original, but it really ventures away from the vaguely open ended nature of the first game and creative atmosphere to something that feels a lot more typically Mario. They squandered a lot of what made Galaxy so special instead of capitalising on it.

      It sounds like I'm under selling Galaxy 2 though. If the original is like a 10/10 game, then Galaxy 2 is only a 9.5/10. It's still absolutely brilliant; just a little bit less brilliant.

       

      Odyssey is like 7/10

      Galaxy 2's tighter gameplay doesn't mean a whole lot to me on its own with 3D World just committing fully to tight gameplay without any of Galaxy's intrusive presentation choices holding it back tbh.

      Galaxy 2 justifies it's goal of being more tighter and streamlined because the gravity gimmick felt like one worth getting more mileage out of as it's gone by 3D World. So I understand that. 

  25. Hot take but Mario Galaxy is pretty good
