      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

      Speederino

      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

      Basically, the Nintendo approach gone horribly wrong.

    2. 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. When I see something I'll give a shit otherwise I ignore all these hints and clues and teasing because it's not worth the energy speculating. If it's not SA3 though this tweet will be funny to look back on
  5. 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

      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

      Sonic drowned so that the others could swim.

  6. This crate system sucks like I am trying SO hard to look for hidden crates, Im on the sixth world I have only gotten one box gem...ONE. And I spend up to like 30 minutes on each level making sure I got everything and on five seperate occasions I ended up missing the box total by one. It's insane and I finally elected to ignore crate completion for the remaining levels because clearly I'm wasting my time without a guide or some sort. Great game otherwise but finding crates should absolutely not be this hard

      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.

      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.

      @Soniman maybe read that again buddy and realize who you’re talking to before just making rushed assumptions  lol. 

  8. Balan doesn't even look anything like nights from a gameplay perspective anyway. Just looks like a....really slow platformer Still interested but yeah I don't think Sega is shaking in their boots
  9. Yeah I gotta say I'm not really all that disappointed in this collection like a lot of people are. They absolutely did tye bare minimum and shit like 64 not bring wide screen REALLY annoys me. Nothing about playing these games on Switch feel jank or unenjoyable for me. Granted I just beat 64 and started Sunshine so I'm not through everything but still like the control changes in Sunshine I adapted to fairly quickly. Basically from my experience they're just the OG Hanes and any pros and cons with my experience with them extend to the original versions. It's up to you if you consider that worth the $60
  10. Thank you Shadow for realizing what a colossal dumbass you were during the Zombot arc , that's one step in the right direction at least
  11. Logged in 50 hours in the original HW. It was kinda shallow but it was a lot of fun so.....yeah I'm down for this. I love the concept
  12. 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 

    1. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

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

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

  14. There's something really funny about the full song being lost to time for over two decades and all it took to dig it up was just some guy asking someone on the production team really nicely (and even then they didn't ask for the song just the lyrics LOL)
  15. 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

  16. 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.

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

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      LOVE shitty RNG patterns I can't adapt to 

    2. Blue Blood

      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.

      Kinda wish Mania ended at Lava Reef. MM & TM are kinda boring and the bosses are mostly meh.

      Guys he was talking about Mega Man Zero

  18. 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.

  20. 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 

  21. This is like impressive IT really is the exact opposite of what people wanted and expected out of a direct. Way to completely make people not excited, hopefully there's at least one surprise

  23. Finished TLOU2 last Friday and I gotta say....I really liked it? I knew of the drama going in and I knew how utterly loathed the games story and writing were by the community at large but I REALLY didn't wanna have that color my perception of the game. I wanted it to stand on its own and I was quite satisfied with how it all played out. I understand Ellie's actions and sympathized with them while not being okay with them. I understood Abby and why she did what she did but also the game made me understand that she's human and not the cold emotionless villian the game (and the internet) initially led me to believe. The big death scene at the start didn't really bother me because the character had it comming regardless of any amends he'd made afterwards. Nothing really sticks out to me as major writing pit falls but very obviously I'm not the majority on that one and others have many criticsms for every major character. I just saw the story as less of a morality tale on why "revenge is bad" and more just..me seeing the lives of these people play out, and people can and will make bad choices especially in the situations they're presented with. I didn't feel manipulated because I didn't really project onto them, it's their journey not mine so to me I'm just an observer as opposed to something like Detroit Become Human where you actively influence the story OH and graphics, gameplay, set pieces etc etc were all good but that's a given
  24. Is there any particular reason why Wrath of Cortex and Twinsanity HAVE to be in an alternate timeline beyond "game bad"? Like the Titan games I totally get because of how different they are but not with the others
  25. So expressive do colorful so full of charm and LIFE. Take notes other nondescript animal based platformer series. Game looks GREAT I cant wait for this to drop
