  1. Three more DNC officials have resigned in response to the DNC email leak: http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/08/03/us/politics/dnc-email-hack-hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders.html On the Republican side, Donald Trump has refused to endorse Paul Ryan and John McCain for the time being. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-refuses-to-endorse-paul-ryan-in-gop-primary-im-just-not-quite-there-yet/2016/08/02/1449f028-58e9-11e6-831d-0324760ca856_story.html Mike Pence, on the other hand, endorsed Ryan today. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/08/03/mike-pence-strongly-endorses-paul-ryan-as-trump-refuses-to-do-the-same/
  2. Here's the live stream on YouTube. Bill Clinton is about to speak, I believe.
  3. Yeah, I kind of cringed reading that bit. At this point, I'm kind of worried that the Democrats will screw this up massively and increase the chances of a Trump presidency. In other news, Trump is leading in these two polls, one by CNN, and the other by the LATimes: http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/25/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton-poll/index.html http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-convention-bounce-20160725-snap-htmlstory.html This could be from a post convention bump, but I'm not sure if that's the entire story. I guess things will be a little more clear after the DNC.
  4. It definitely decreases my excitement for new releases, at the very least. However, different Sonic games feature things that I look for in the series, so I just turn to those when I feel like it.
  5. So apparently Obama's half brother is voting for Trump. This really has been an interesting week for the Democrats 

  6. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is resigning after the DNC this week: http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/289026-democratic-national-committee-chairwoman-will-resign
  7. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/07/23/us/politics/dnc-emails-sanders-clinton.html So a bunch of DNC emails have been leaked. One of the bigger impacts this has had is bringing the DNC's impartiality during the primary into question. It's going to be interesting to see if this has any impact in the next couple of days, especially with he DNC coming up on Monday
  8. Overall, I'm pretty excited for Mania. I'm not sure how I feel about Project 2017 though. However, I'm very curious about it, so I guess the teaser served its purpose.

  9. My memory is a bit fuzzy but I don't think we knew Generations's name at the time of the teaser either.
  10. IIRC, the first Generations gameplay trailer came out about a week after the teaser, so it's possible we won't have to wait that long to see the first bits of the game.
  11. The word resistance makes me a little optimistic for the fate of the other characters. I know it's complete speculation, but I feel like they'll have more of a role than glorified cheerleaders. In any case, I was pleasantly surprised by the presentation; the tone definitely seems different than Colors and Generations, which is something I can't complain about at all.
  12. All this hype reminds me of 2011. I honestly don't think I've been this excited for a Sonic game reveal since then

      I was as well, but 2011 was the year I really started getting back into Sonic games so Generations hype had a larger impact on me overall

      I mean, yeah the buildup to Gens was pretty big but we got spoiled rich at the end and Gens wasn't even that big of game in terms of content.

  13. I saw the speeches by Dr. Alvarado and Scott Walker. I didn't really agree with the arguments Alvarado presented but I thought he delivered his speech pretty well. Scott Walker, on the other hand, has the rhetorical skills of a robot.
  14. Chemical Engineering here. I want to get a minor in food science though to learn more about things like food processing and well...the science of food.
  15. My member title comes from Sonic in Sonic Riders. The "apparently not" bit is just something I added to reference my profile picture, which is decidedly not a good example of Sonic flying.
