  1. I just learned the hard way that many Power supplies do not include a cable for a CD Drive :(

  2. >Benchmark video says the game is on max settings

    >Benchmark uses the lowest form of antialiasing

    Bruh that shit doesn't count

      True, some sometimes the AA can be so bad that it really should be turned off. Like with FF15 or something.

  3. I've loved this game since the mid 2000s. Been following it for a while now and I'm super excited for the upcoming 2.2 release. It looks like it's going to be amazing, maybe my perfect 3D Sonic game. We've already seen implementations of the updated physics in new mod levels. Haven't played the Kart mod, it doesn't really look like my thing, buit I definitely can't wait for the next big update. Really hoping we get it this year. The sneak previews look incredible.
  4. Ooooohhh I'm really hoping we finally get a Star Wars game with lightsaber combat that can at least hold a candle to games like Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. I liked the Force Unleashed games, but the failed to impress me as much as JK2 and JK3 did. This game takes place almost immediately after Order 66, right? I recall hearing something about that, but I could be wrong.
  5. And here I thought Sonic 3 Complete was the only way ideal way to play this game anymore, then this gem comes out absolutely nowhere. Really, this is the best way to play the game now, IMO. The only thing it lacks is the Sonic & Knuckles PC collection tracks, like Sonic 3 Complete has, but that's a very insignificant thing I could care less about. This is awesome. Definitely give this a try, everyone.
  6. VEEEEEEEERY Unpopular opinion...

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Carnival Night on the Genesis sucks, the S&K collection on PC is much better and more fitting.

      I don't really like either of them very much to be honest.

      I like Act 2 of the PC version.

      It's actually one of my favorite tracks out of the classic lineup but hey, I respect your opinion.

      Never heard the PC version but I wouldn't be surprised if I would like it more

  7. This is basically how I look at it. Why would you have a near decade's worth of games (Adventure 1 to 06) as the name of a console that lasted about 2-3 years? "Dreamcast era" makes no sense, especially I would say the modern era started with Unleashed. It created an entirely new art style for the series which basically became the series staple, a mixture of realistic and cartoon-like environments and characters. The characters have looked exactly the same from Unleashed onward. I feel like it's safe to say that, if you want to say we have something called a "modern era", it began with Unleashed. The "Dark era" is also fitting for more reasons, not only was it trying to be edgy AF, but the games were so shit that it was basically the real dark ages of the franchise. I'm really not sure if we entered a new era yet. Maybe? The past 8 years have felt like a bunch of reusing what was good (with varying degrees of success).
  8. So I don't know if this is the appropriate place to discuss this, however, Nvidia is being really questionable at the moment. https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/nvidia-gtx-1650-slight-upgrade-over-gtx-1050/ https://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvidia-geforce-gtx-1650-graphics-card-benchmark,38882.html GTX 1650 specs are being leaked across the board. There is general consistency with these leaks, and considering one leak also said that the GTX 1660 will be released on March 14 (which it was, reviewer copies), I feel like these leaks seem legit. If they are legit, we should see this card around April 30th. It is barely an upgrade, if at all, from the GTX 1050 Ti. Well, what does it cost? $179... That is dumb AF. It's nearly consistent with the 1050 ti, which had an MSRP of $139 and you're adding an extra $40 for next to no additional performance? Who is going to buy this product? Why not just get the 1660 for 40 more bucks and get double the performance, or get an AMD card for the same price that's gonna be twice as good or close. This stupidity is on par with the GT 1030 DDR4. The 1650 should be the same MSRP as the 1050 Ti, maybe $149 at most. I'm not buying this "mobile variant" shit. The leaked specs have been showing a consistent lack of improvement over the 1050 Ti pretty much always. I doubt all of those were for the mobile variant.
  9. Who else is stoked for Streets of Rage 4?

  10. I still can't believe that Sonic Unleashed became backwards compatible on Xbox One. And it's actually pretty good, according to players. Even with some FPS improvements! Nice to see my favorite 3D Sonic game getting some love.

    Now if we can somehow get a PC port Sega I will apologize for how much I've been shitting over this franchise for the past 3 years.

      Unleashed Project doesn't count, I want everything from the Werehog to that annoying AF medal collecting

      A PC port is like, the one thing I need from them at this point. After that... I won't even care what they do with the series. The perfect Sonic game would've already been made imo.

      I mean, Unleashed is my favourite 3D Sonic game but I will goddamn roll out the red carpet for them cutting the annoying AF medal collecting in a re-release of the game.

      If it were up to me, I would add additional ways to earn medals so gating progress allows the player to do a myriad of tasks to earn them based on their preferences (beating town missions, getting good ranks, etc), rebalance so day/night stages don't have their medals skewed one way or the other.  I'd prolly reduce the required medals for mandatory progress gates too, with more focus on medal-collecting being the way to unlock the extra acts.

  11. Citizens of Brit-Bong land, how would you say Brexit has impacted the value of the Pound? It definitely lowered in value, but how badly did it impact you and your community?

  12. A GTX 1060 3GB is now cheaper than a GTX 1050 Ti on Amazon, what is happening lol

  13. which is worse in your opinion, Sonic Boom or Sonic 06? Why?

    1. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Sonic Boom just due to 06 being fun to break.

    2. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      Sonic 06 forever will be the worse for many reasons... even putting aside the awful gameplay! it has a ugly art style that doesn't match the series and a lame story that takes itself way to seriously.

      Maxtiis

      @Lord-Dreamerz The notification sound from you posting that near gave me a heart attack.

      Sonic Boom. For starters it’s part of an unnecessary sub-division in a franchise that was already divided by the million directions SEGA was taking their iconic character in. Don’t get me started about the hideous redesigns. The cartoon was the only good thing about the whole thing.

      Only positive thing I can say about Sonic Boom was the character interaction. Very obvious issues aside, Sonic ‘06 gave me that as well as some really good music and some characters having good characterization. And even though it wasn’t its intention, it provided a significant amount of humor. Can’t say the same about Sonic Boom as majority of its glaring issues were not funny in the slightest.

      Gosh. They are both just so darn bad that it's hard to pick one.

      Guess I'd pick Sonic Boom as the worst. It's soundtrack was pretty forgettable and it's boss battles were really dull. The level environments lacked variety and the replay value felt pointless. Sure, I could collect some stuff I missed...but why bother?

      Also, what was Shadows deal, did Eggman even have a world conquering plan and why was Sticks an NPC that did nothing for the story, despite being shown as important to that specific branch of Sonic...ness?

      Also the boring gameplay, automatic speed parts and the fact that it was glitch infested.

      Boom, easily. I can actually have fun with Sonic '06. Fun for the wrong reasons, mind you, but fun all the same. It also has good music. Sonic Boom doesn't. 

    7. The Tenth Doctor

      Boom. 06 was an extremly watered down Adventure so had a bit of fun there, Shadow's story was kind of competent, Mephiles is a fun piece of ham fisted villain and it had a solid soundtrack. Boom had slowass gameplay that just feels bad, the worst writing the series has ever had, a boring villain and a boring soundtrack.

       

  14. So a GTX 1050 Ti now costs barely below a GTX 1060 or an RX 580 or 570, all of which are much superior cards to the 1050 Ti.

    lol Nvidia wtf are you doing
