  1. Waiting for the 9th generation of gaming. C'mon, why is the 8th generation dragging on and on?!

      What can the 9th gen seriously that the 8th hasn't done already sans prettier graphics?

      I tend not to keep up with the current generation in gaming until the last minute if that. That said I am in no absolute rush for the next one.

      At least it wasn't the 7th generation where that dragged on and on and on, about 8 years in total between console generation gaps (10 if you class that Forza Horizon 2 and Rise of the Tomb Raider got 360 versions as well as Metal Gear Solid V was originally designed for those consoles but the engine scaled up well) and games by the end had problems coping where some games felt like that they got ported to the N64. The current generation doesn't have this problem, whether you have a based PS4 or a PS4 Pro/Xbox One X.

      Besides it is better than the generations that used to be like every 5 years or so and the arcade whooped nearly any console literally yearly until to the Dreamcast. There is another generation coming soon, it depends whether Microsoft or Sony announces their next console rumored to be in 2 years time. Even then it is rumored to be going the streaming or the digital route anyway because discs can't cope with the storage any more for the big games.

      Spoiler

      Personally I don't really like using the number generation term as it is pretty biased towards consoles in the US market. Since when is the Sinclair Spectrum the same generation as the Master System since they looked and performed leagues apart? The only connection is that they both used a Z80 and a PSG sound chip. It also doesn't cover .5 generations very well like the Master System, PC Engine, more so the Dreamcast and the Wii U where they are more powerful than the consoles before but not the ones shortly after.

       

  2. Ah so I return exactly a month later I see... :P

      Welcome back!

  3. I bought MGK's Binge EP.  Worth it.  Buy it now y'all!  If you're into modern hip-hop/rap.

  4. Why does Frosty the Snowman say "happy birthday" in Frosty the Snowman?

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

  5. Neat website you got going!  I'll have to subscribe to you on YouTube.

  6. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, happy birthday!  I hope you come back to SSMB one day!

  7. They should make new Squidbillies episodes.

  8. Keep me up for all of September and I hope it never ends!

  9. I am genuinely interested in what Sonic the Hedgehog has to offer in the 2020's.  The new roaring 20's!  LOL!

      Many more re-releases of Sonic 1

      I’m concerned tbh unless it’s anything along the lines of Mania.

      That said however I really hope things will improve with Modern Sonic with a clear direction.  

    3. Waveshocker Sigma

      I don't think I could stomach anything similar to Mania. I'd prefer them to do something different and move the series forward regardless of whatever design or dimension Sonic and the game is in.

  10. I love it when I make statuses of things never said before on the Internet and they end up being the first result on Google if you look it up.

  11. I'm getting a blue Chevy Sonic, Sonic plushie in the back and I'm gonna drive to a Sonic Drive-In while I drink a Neuro Sonic!  I will also listen to Sonic related music too!

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Will you be driving the Chevy Sonic at super sonic speed?

    2. Mick

      Mick

      That too!

    3. Kiah

      Kiah

      I wanted a blue Chevy Sonic when looking for a new car (ended up with a silver Toyota Corolla), I have a Sonic plushie on the dashboard, there’s no Sonic Drive-In near me unfortunately and Neuro Sonic tastes good! And Sonic music is what I play most in my car lol.

      @KiahI spotted a Blue Chevy somewhere in the Jersey Shore several hours ago.  It was some older gentleman driving it.

  12. Happy birthday!  You are close to big 4-O, if that means anything to you.  You can be like Jack Benny and say you're 39 every year from now on though!  Haha!

  13. Happy birthday!  I hope you enjoy yourself today!

  14. Phony, Macrohard and Pretendo.  Pick your poison.

  16. KRS-One is the most intelligent rapper of all-time!

  17. It isn't too far away, but I look forward to Sonic's 30th anniversary.

    1. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Maybe it's weird but I actually kinda hope they skip it for once. Too often games get rushed for anniversaries and they suffer badly for it.

    2. Kiah

      Kiah

      I actually look forward to the Sonic franchise being in its 30’s like me 😉

      Bar the Sonic Mania hype and maybe the merchandise push in Sonic’s 25th anniversary I hope they make a much bigger deal of this particular anniversary as it was pretty disappointing overall imo. Especially in the game quality department. Wishful thinking, I know but one can dream. 

    3. Mick

      @Blacklightning, good point you present there!

  18. The Sonic movie would be better if it was 100% animation.  The movie that is being worked on now is a poor man's Cool World.

  19. I hate to say it, but I think the Sonic movie will be ultra mega cringe to the max.  Sorry if I sound like a former Sonic fan... but I think the movie will be awful and I will not watch it in a theatre.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I think most people here are expecting it to be utterly awful.

    2. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      Many people here are less of Sonic fan now than when they've joined. You don't have be a "true" fan to communicate with people here.

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      And for what it's worth, I'm still a huge fan despite the disdain I hold for the series. You can be a critical fan.

    4. Mick

      Mick

      Yup, you're right.

  20. I've been here on this forum for 11 years.  Yup I joined around July 21-23.

      Happy SSMBVersary bud!

  21. EPMD is such a good hip-hop group.

  22. You are mildly famous in the Sonic fandom, I'm surprised you don't get tons of messages lol :P

    1. SonicHOG

      SonicHOG

      I am? Because of my Barney obsession, I’m guessing? XD

    2. Mick

      Mick

      Yeah probably lol

  23. BTW, is your avatar the fan art of the main character (I forgot his name...) from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends or is that a caricature of you?

    1. Tomadom

      Tomadom

      It's a caricature of me, a friend made it for me and gave me permission to use it as my profile picture. Though I will admit it does look like the main character (I believe his name was Mac?).

    2. Mick

      Mick

      Yup, his name was Mac.  I looked it up.

  24. Hi and welcome to SSMB.  I see you're new here!

    1. Tomadom

      Tomadom

      Hi! Yeah, I realized after years of coming to the Sonic Stadium for news updates that this website has a forum. I figured that since I enjoy Sonic Retro forums and other gaming related forums that I'd go ahead and make an account here.

    2. Mick

      Mick

      Yeah, that's cool.  I have been on here since July 2007... the incarnation before this one is lost forever (but you can see some pages through Archive.org) when the server got wiped... sadly, it was never backed up and this forum had to be started over by scratch in March 2009.
