  1. Last Jedi is a good movie so im not surprised the Star Wars fans hate it

    1. Dr. Jack

      TLJ is so revolutionary that of course hardcore fans will hate it.

    2. QuantumEdge


      I'd hardly call it revolutionary, and through all the more ridiculous reasons people hate it, there are those who bring valid criticism to the table.

  2. How is Pontaff's writing viewed now?

    American writers cant write good stories (though I say Pontaff as a whole absolutley dont deserve half the bile they get from the fandom) Jappanese writers cant write either, as Forces has shown. Im very much in full nihlism mode currently with this series so I see no real point in pointing figures or asking for a replacement when I know in my heart whoever new they got would be just as bad or worse. ill stick following my ian flyn Sonic comics then hoping for change/improvement that wont ever happen.
  3. where will sonic team go from here

    Man it feels weird to finally just not have any hope at all lol. I currently have no faith in current Sonic Team to turn out a decent product right now so whatever they do ill expect it to be bad, even if they "listen" to critcism and change up the gameplay theyll probably screw that up to. Any good ideas they might have mean nothing when the people in charge dont have the talent to pull it off in a satisfying way so well just keep getting bad boost games or experimental garbage unless they get a massive upheaveal in staff Hers to another year of Sonic disappointing me, looking forward Mania 2

  5. Eh a month of being free is long enough for anyone who gives a shit about the game still to get it, and even so, 2 dollars is chump change anyway. Not defending this of anything, but it's definitely not anything worth getting super upset over honestly.
  6. Happy Birthday to me, gonna spend the day.... Working. Ah well lol

  7. My Hero Academia

    Let me talk to you guys about this real quick My Hero Academia is the new rising Shounen on the block, potentially rivialing its contemporaries like Naruto and Bleach in poularity. It gained a lot of traction, probably because its pretty dang good. The story is about a boy named Deku who, in a world of people with superpowers, has none of his own. But as fate would have it he runs into his idol, the world's number 1 hero All Might. From there the story goes into a underdog tale of Deku working hard and improving to hopefully someday become the world's greatest hero himself. Stqarting by attentind a prestegious hero academy with other fellow heroes who share the same goals. While not the most freshest or most subversive anime/manga around, it does play around with the formula enough to keep things from being to formulaic or predictable. Character archetypes you've come to expect are played with and twisted so they're given a relatively fresh perspective. Our main character is a emotoinal, talentless boy who wears his heart on his sleeve, as opposed to a confident, niave hot head that comes to permeate the genre. Character designs are fun, varied and well thought out, the "power system" with quirks are all unique and are mostly on a even keel, your power is what you make of it, and even with the most seemingly unimpressive power you can becaome a competent fighter and hero, it makes fights more interesting when everyone has something unique to bring to the table and isnt goverened by a single power system. I could go on about the gut punching emotional moments, the mostly solid character development and relationships with each other, and so on but id honestly say check it out for yourself. The anime has 2 seasons and is about to finish it's second one, the manga is ongoing so if you dont wanna wait just read that! If you wanna watch the anime id say go for either sub or dub since they're both really solid. I leave off with this brilliant piece of music from the anime
  8. Okay I started the game  I'm just being told I downloaded the first expansion pass and not the second one. Will it get automatically added later? Or do I have to buy the second one?? 

  9. Sonic Forces Reviews Thread

    Ehh apples and oranges. A raw untested unfocused new gameplay style that wasn't fleshed out vs a previously well liked gameplay style stripped of all its substance. Both were panned for diffrent reasons but the flaws still shine all the same. Forces probably only got the short end due to boost fatigue/over automation and two other gameplay styles with their own myriad of problems on top of it
  10. Kinda why I never got why the fandom collectively decided Colors Tails is bad. It actually felt like there was a spark of friendship between Sonic and Tails again after the boring bland stale affair it fell into post SA2. Sure not every line landed but it had heart. You won't see me saying the same for SLW and Forces Tails though, both are disasters
  11. Shadow isnt even a antihero in Boom, hes a completley homicidal maniac lmao

    1. Forte-Metallix


      I remember one of the writers insisting he wants to fight Sonic out of pride, not villainy.

      Personally, I don't see much of a difference.

    2. DiamondX the Fighter

      DiamondX the Fighter

      If you mean the part where he wants to destroy the universe, that's just to test Sonic.

      He is literally Vegeta.

    3. RedFox99


      I feel like the season 2 finale made his characterization even worse.

      I like him as a bastard.

  12. Sonic Forces - OST Thread

    Yeah I noticed on closer listening to them that some of it doesn't sound like "genesis" Sonic but like the genesis sound you hear in most other genesis games, you know that grungy bubbly sound? Think like Sonic Spinball music
  13. Sonic Forces - OST Thread

    Man it kinda sucks to see the near universal panning classic Sonic's music is getting. I only think Green Hill is the intolerable one, Ghost Town is very underrated a track and Death Egg/Chemical Plant isn't that bad either L. I also enjoy the Egg Dragoon boss theme
  14. It kinda just hit me that, yeah...we're back here again lmao. Now, people were saying stuff like this when SLW failed to make a splash, I was willing to brush it off ass a experiment that didnt pan out and Sonic Team would bounce back soon enough. But then we got the Boom initiative, a colossal failure from start to finish resulting in the worst reviewed AND worst selling 3D Sonic game game, a bad 3DS version, a mediocre sequel, a cancelled comic series and a soon to be cancelled Cartoon. Not EVERYTHING about it was terrible but I can confidently say that it did more bad then good for the series, But even then I was willing to write it off as a failed experiment not made by Sonic Team directly. And then there's Forces, the culmination of 4 years of work winding up a confused mess of a product unable to make any visible improvements to the 7/10 at best, 6 year old game its obviously trying to copy. A downgrade in every concevable way, I dont even think there's much I can say at this point about it, its just...bad. Most fans dont like it, most regular critics havent been warm to it either, all in all its looking ot be yet another failure. Sure theres Mania, and thats great and all, but just like Sonic Rush before it, a good-great side game (not made by Sonic Team) by itself cant eclipse the bad rep the main games are providing. Its a little depressing when you consider the idea of waiting 3-5 years for a new Sonic and its bad, this Franchise is in a dire state and Sonic Team is in need of a desperate rerstructuring if its to get back on its feet for more then 3 years this time. What do you think? Am I jumping the gun in saying this??
  15. I think Luminous Forest might be the worst level design ive seen for a modern Sonic level.....

    1. JezMM


      Eh, at least the 2D section is okay.  Considering Sunset Heights still feels like a (bad) tutorial stage and as it turned out, it's halfway through the game, I'd say that's the bigger disappointment for me.

  16. Sonic Forces Reviews Thread

    When everyone wanted a scathing IGN review, we get this 6.9/10
  17. So we're really in a second "Dark Age" huh??

    So now that the reiew scores are croppping up and like...none of them have been particuarly glowing so far? Is it time to call it now?
  18. Anyone else wouldve preferred if Infinite just stayed like this and his jackal army or whatever served under Eggman instead? Actual personality, better design, has a cool sword. Not sayhing its much but if we cant have Nack id be nice to have a genuinley evil furry under Eggman's employ whos not being maniplated or mind controlled. I prefer this instead of what we got.
  19. Sonic Forces Reviews Thread

    Why do we always come after critics for this when more often then not the fans dislike their portrayl just as much if not more in these recent games?
  20. Sonic Forces Reviews Thread

    Music is subjective so this argument will go absolutely nowhere, if you think it's worse then stuff like Sonic 4 and what have you more power to you. I certainly don't though
  21. Sonic Forces Reviews Thread

    One or two (or three) bad songs can't be compared to an entire discography of trash sorry

    >worst sonic soundtrack since Chronicles Everything else is mostly agreeable but.... Really? Lol

      Goddamit I should of made that bet with him. 

  24. We've got to hear a few tracks so we might as well get the ball rolling with this. So in a surprising upset, the music for a Sonic game has been seen as (like the rest of the game) very mixed by fans. Some liking what they heard, others finding it forgettable or just downright bad. So far we know that as usual, Tomoya Ohanti is heading the soundtrack and a another recently confirmed veteran artist, Naofumi Hataya, who lenses his talents to th eClassic Sonic boss theme. So far I'd say the music is pretty alright so far. The main theme has a nice kick, I really enjoy custom park Avenue simply because I've missed music in level lyrical tunes for Sonic despite its chessyness, and modern park Avenue is just good ol high energy rock which I'm always a fan of. However shit like Classic Green Hill sounds like a hilarious God damn mess lmao, sounds like a cacophony of random 16 bit instruments which vaguely has a melody (though Tomoya said its unfinished I can't expect THAT much change) if this is how classic's music will be handled then I have another reason to be annoyed with his inclusion. Classic boss music sounds fine though. So what's everyone else think?
  25. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    Id say the story overall has more high points then SLW which was just a slog of underwitten character, OOC moments, emotinal lynchpins that are inappropriate and undesrved. Gens which basically has no story (tho id arge what was there has more charm to it then Forces tbh), not Colors (which while now typecast as a "bad/cringey" story by the fandom I quite enjoy for its simple lighthearted premise), not Unleahsed (which is white bread as FUCK but doesnt do anything super awfully either), ill give it the edge ovr 06/Shadow for at leat having shades of competent writting.But it handedly loses to SA1/2 and MAYBE even Heroes if im being honest
