  1. Windows 10 is fucking garbage.

    1. Cobalt_Bolt


      Tolerable on my end but it pales in comparison to the hatred I have for Windows 8. Who in the hell designed the UI and why were they allowed to live. Plus the software compatibility when compared to it predecessor's and successor was like a roll of the roulette wheel.

      I don't even care about the UI. I just want shit to work.

      Windows 10 has fucked me and my family's computers up the ass on several ocassions. My family actually had to send in an older PC that we had upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 to a repair shop cause the second the update was done, the sound didn't work. We tried literally everything, I tried everything nothing worked. When we sent it in, they said they had this problem several times and basically told us we were fucked. They had to buy a new computer.

      Windows 10 has also screwed me with it's updates. I just had to spend an hour figuring out why my useless shit update that took millennium (these are way... WAY TO GOD DAMN COMMON) added so much useless crap but made it so that my headphones didn't work. I fixed it, but every solution keeps telling me to download software to install and update drivers, software that usually only tells you what the problem is but doesn't actually download the driver.

      In conclusion, I just want shit to work, and I'm slowly becoming more of a conspiracy theorist that smaller companies have made deals with Microsoft to make Windows 10 suck dick so that they can force people to look up solutions, only to be told the only solution is to buy software that will automatically download updates for you.

      Then there's also all the privacy standards have been flayed alive. Whoever approved all of this shit is a criminal.

      I'm not sure if its just me but it hates Chrome.

      Like I dunno if it likes Youtube because it breaks down if I go do something else, unless its music. And every now and then the screen flashes black for a split second.

      That may just be you, but Windows 10's apps also give me shit too.

      Like their photo app is garbage. I had to look up how to make Windows Photo viewer (the older one from 8 and before) the default one cause not only is the newer one slower, but it's also a CPU hog. My screen has literally frozen because of this crap.

      And my computer has a pretty damn good CPU and a fairly good GPU, I don't know how Microsoft could screw this up so that my computer couldn't even handle a fucking photo app.

      But at least we have 3D paint, right?

      Yeah I've noticed how shit the Photo viewer is. It also feels kind of stalker-ish too in a way.

      But sure 3D Paint everyone's favorite app! I don't have a use for it tho.

      Eh, outside of the sound card issue I got when I installed it on my last computer (that I fixed within the hour) and it soemtimes not playing nice with older games, it’s barely been an issue for me.

      Hell, it downright saved my mom’s older laptop for some reason. Use to have the worst performance ever with 7 but now it runs pretty well. As far as operating systems go, there are much worse options imo.

  2. So much for the N64 Mini rumor.

    Wow what a mediocre E3

    1. Sean


      In fairness I can't imagine what an N64 Classic would have that isn't already on the Wii U shop unless Nintendo bent over backwards for a lot of third-party titles that were either by Rare or now-defunct studios.

    2. Dejimon11


      When the hell have they ever announced their mini consoles at E3? 


    1. Penny


      from soft is working on shadows die twice. they ain't got time for bloodborne 2

  4. I wouldn't even mind the wisps returning if their return was EXPLAINED. I thought they were freed! Why are they on lost planet? Why are they in Forces? Why couldn't Sega have just created a 2 minute in-game explanation for their return instead of just saying fuck Colors' ending?

    1. Forte-Metallix


      Runners explained that some of the Wisps, including Yacker, chose to stay on Sonic's planet instead of going home like Mother Wisp and the rest of them.

      They took a liking to this world and appear whenever Sonic needs them.

    2. McGroose


      So they choose to be forced inside cramped capsules?


    3. Forte-Metallix


      That I can't explain, granted.

    Alright lol I guess it's definitely not me since I'm the only one here on this topic as I type this and the ghost is gone. Good job, Ghostbusters!

    What Dreamcast Games Should I Get?

    Do you need to mod your Dreamcast or include an add-on to make sure that the online functionality works? Specifically asking for Phantasy Star Online, so expect to have to do some additional tinkering before you play that game. Heard it is a lot of fun and it looks like it. Really, just type in "best dreamcast games" onto Google and I'll pretty much agree with every game that pops up. What I love about it the most is that it has so many higher-quality variants of PS1 & N64 games that came out years before on it, like Toy Story 2 & Resident Evil.

    OOOOOOOOOOH A ghost?! Here on SSMB? Lol ya I was the one that pm'd Mayor but I doubt it's me. I just noticed that if I log out and return to the same topic, the "ghost" is gone. Log back in and it's there again -rinse and repeat. It might just be a bug with logged-in accounts in general on some topics. Could someone else test this?

      Ya, I'll be working at Subway. I don't even have previous job experience outside of volunteering. I'm just really good at talking to people confidently and they liked me a lot because of it. The power of the tongue, I tell ya 😗

      Thanks for the congrats, you guys!

    Would you be happy or annoyed if the reason we only have 15 characters is because you can make your own customized character just like Forces and this avatar ended up being a development-time hog.
  10. Hearing Sonic 06's music placed over Forces levels and having them fit surprisingly well reminds me that I just really don't like Forces soundtrack... at all. It's so forgettable.

    1. JezMM


      I couldn't disagree more tbh, I find Forces' soundtrack much more hummable melody-wise than 2006's.  Love both, mind.

    2. McGroose


      There are some parts I like in Forces OST, like the boss themes, but everything else is just forgettable to me. The 06 pieces are atmospheric, which you probably didn't notice or case cause 06's atmosphere was kinda shitty lol. But I definitely noticed when putting the 06 soundtrack over Forces gameplay. For example, Aquatic Base works perfectly for the Avatar's Death Egg level. The 06 music almost feels like it's trying to tell me a story, trying to help me visualize the setting in my head. Forces OST does nothing of the sort for me. 

    3. Bobnik


      *ahem* Episode Shadow tracks tho (unless you don't like those, then I guess fair enough)

      I still disagree on that it's forgettable, cuz there's quite a lot of tracks I hum from time to time. Vocal tracks are a given (yes, even Fist Bump), Sunset Heights, Luminous Forest (though that's because of Speed Battle), some Avatar tracks and some of the final, more epic tracks, which fit the levels quite well.

      Also Ghost Town (the melody is really catchy) and Classic's Green Hill (though that's for the wrong reasons, I actually want it to disappear from my head but I can't please send help)

      At least it isn't as forgettable to me as, say, Lost World. Or Boom series

    4. McGroose


      I don't like the Episode Shadow remixes. They're ok, not as good as the originals.

      I should have clarified more on the vocal tracks. They're memorable certainly, but only cause they annoy me so much. Fist bump is annoying AF to me and none of the lyrics really stand out to me in the other vocal songs except maybe the Avatar's last level in Eggman's Fortress.

      There were some tracks in Lost World I liked, but ya most were forgettable. Boom's ost is as bland as it gets.

      Sonic 06's music was a gem in an otherwise overall terrible package.

    Team Sonic Racing - Reveal Trailer

    15 characters is absolute BS. Didn't both All Stars Racing games have far more than that? I'm sure that Transformed certainly did. I was also hoping for some Sonic R exclusive characters to return somehow. I wanted to see the Tails Doll and Mecha Knuckles come back. If Mania brought back a bunch of old characters, characters that have already been referenced in modern games before Mania even came out (Generations with the wanted posters), there's no excuse why this game shouldn't include several more characters at least as unlockables. It's obvious that, if there's only going to be 15 characters in the game, we're probably going to get no more obscure than maybe Big the Cat or Blaze. The problem clearly isn't the lack of options to choose from. Unfortunately, I'm really doubting that there will be more characters outside the 15 and we'll probably only start out with the basic trio of Sonic, Tails and Knuckles, slowly unlocking more of the 15 later on. I really hope I'm wrong. I still want to see both Mighty and Ray in a 3D environment as well...
  12. Anyone think the Unleashed Project level's hardware requirements are kind of off? It says Mazuri is one of the least demanding levels, but I've had morel lag in it than other levels so far. I've got a i5 7400 and a GT 1030.

    1. Strickerx5


      I think they base the hardware requirements off of the size of the shaders used by the level and the amount of assets loaded by it. In which case, Mazuri should be one of the easiest levels to play. Though, every rig is different and different things can cause minor slowdowns in each.

      Especially with the Unleashed project where SonicGMI seems to love changing up how it loads things into Generations each chance it gets. Even with my gtx 1080 I sometimes get graphical hiccups. Though, re-enabling the mod and a reboot of the game usually does the trick.

      It's part of the reason why I constantly advocate for a full on PC port of Unleashed. The team that did this mod can't get enough appreciation in my book (the sheer work they put into it is staggering) but there are just some things that are never going to work right with it. ST seemed to have just stripped too much out of the engine by the time Generations came out for a 1:1 transition sadly. That and the unavoidable console to pc conversions running their toll too.

    2. shdowhunt60


      I don't know about that, but the GT 1030 isn't a high end GPU by any means.

  13. Just installed my new GPU. It's only a GT 1030 so it's nothing spectacular, but it's playing all of my 2011 games and earlier on max settings 60FPS cause of my kickass CPU. For newer games, I'm not picky. I just use my PS4 Pro. My stance on games now is that 7th gen titles and older should always run perfectly and I don't really care about newer ones cause they'll look pretty damn good on the PS4 regardless.

  14. Why is Winrar for some people able to properly extract multiple RAR folder contents as a single ISO file while for other people its extracted as another single RAR file? This has been pissing me off for the past hour.

  15. The fact that India's population outnumbers even all of Africa and is a a good couple hundred million more than the EU speaks wonders about how the country is still slightly stable at all.
