  1. You know now that I think about it I love how Gangplank Galleon gets intense over the course of the fight.

    It makes you think you're fighting this silly cartoon crocodile but then when the song gets going the gloves come off.

    Sonic soundtracks that have aged vs not aged

    I suppose I should do my usual hot takes on this. I think the classic games' soundtracks aged pretty well. Yeah there's some strange tracks like Hilltop Zone from 2 and CD in general depending on which region (not that it makes them lesser) but they don't feel dated as you'd think. Its weird because Sonic has been characterized by being the mascot with an attitude and a guitar. The music doesn't really reflect that, at least until... The Adventure era. Ohhhh boy this where the hot takes begin. The Adventure era's music hasn't really aged too well. Yeah it shows how technology progressed and how you can get new sounds that don't sound like it came from just a keyboard. However this where 90s edge really oozed into Sonic and it shows way too much. The instrumentals are fine for the most part. Its just the vocal tracks are just cheesy and at times nonsensical. Its tone are just too 90s during a time when the rest of the world was moving on and makes it more of a product of its time. The more I think about it I just wonder how or why we got so excited for Open your Heart or Sonic Heroes when its just so cheesy at its core. I would even say some of the songs are pretty cringe. Its just hard for me describe because music doesn't have anything physical to type about. The modern era does at least try to do different things and manages to keep away from what the Adventure was. Will it be a product of their time as well? Probably. Reach for the Stars came out during a time where more electronic music was getting popular if I recall. But again they tried to keep the soundtrack to be more timeless than it was before. I guess this is where I praise Sonic Unleashed in that regard. Time will tell so its a we will see thing. I probably sound like a grumpy old man now which I probably am but I digress but after I branched off from Sonic music and found all sorts of bands I found what I was missing in music. Now I'm just wondering what I was thinking back then when I listened to Sonic tracks and thinking "this is the best thing ever!" It makes me kind of regret my childhood in a way. I guess its probably because I've been moving away from the series. Maybe Sonic is destined to be a product of the time period but its something bound to happen when you're a long running series. It can't be helped at times since you want to appeal to people in the now. But its not always a bad thing. You gotta preserve things in some way. But in the long run only you like what you like and don't like. So yeah there's the CROW hot take of the day.
  3. So I'm playing Shining Resonance and well...

    Is it me or do these songs sound suspiciously similar? I mean they're both from Sega games but its kind of an eerie conscience if so. Even more so since they're town themes.

  4. Remember when Gen 5 was hyping up Kyurem's "true" form but we only got 2 halves instead of the completed thing? Yeah that was sadly nothing but hot air.

    But its even more funny is that they actually did the same with Zygarde but actually showing it...a bit anticlimatically since you just get in a different gen you'd expect no less!

  5. hey crow whats up?

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Yeah? Sorry. Got caught up with something.

    5. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      well i wanted to know whats 1 video game you despise?

    6. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Hmmm... Sorry for the slow response but I'm having a hard time thinking of games that I genuinely hate. I could say a glitchy mess of a game or some shit like that but that's too easy.

      There are some examples I could think of though for some ideas.

      FFXIII mostly because I didn't like what was going on and was confused. It didn't help I have up on the FF series after XII but mostly because I was depressed due to X.

      And there's P4A. I wasn't too big on Persona 4 due to various reason but since I'm a bit of a fighting game nerd I did had to play the fighting game buuuuuuuuuut.... Its not very original in regards to mechanics and not very interesting. If anything its pretty frustrating. P4U didn't help things at all.

      And there's any Hatsune Miku game but that's due to my general dislike of her.

    7. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      its okay


      one of mine is arc rise fantasia

      due to how the combat is every thing costs ap

      and if 2 of your party members get ko'd

      you're not doing much

      also the voice acting is so bad its painful to listen too

  6. Its been 2 years since I started a certain RP with @Failinhearts

    Time flies huh? Its been a wild ride.

    Failin's Reviews! [Youtube Series]

    What a strange problem. I just hope you can get it working this time around. I don't mind the delays mind you but I'm just finding the situation too weird. Just do what you have to. Don't sweat for timing or anything.
  8. No one told me about a new Samurai Shodown coming out next year.

    Now I feel out of the loop. 😕

    1. DanJ86


      Well, I'm outta the loop all the time.

      Though I think I do recall something about a new Samurai Shodown. I just can't remember how it looked or what it was called or on what system it'll be on.

      Is it possible this is all a dream??

      It just randomly appeared on my Youtube recommendations. It should had known I love this series!

    Soul Calibur VI (Does your soul still burn)

    And here's Raphael's trailer. Of course its his pre-vampire self but its making a nod to that with his title. Anyways he looks pretty fun here too. He's been kind of my on and off main but I think he might be my main here since Aeon/Lizardman isn't in this, at least as a unique character.
  10. The BanG Dream x Persona 5 collab baffles me sometimes.

    Not because its random and how small Bandori is compared to other rhythmn games like LL and the Idolmaster.

    ....Its because the band who dresses as the P5 cast don't even cover the P5 song. They cover the P4 song....


  11. Its weird how I sort of became an observer on here. I haven't been too active here lately due to life but its interesting how I've came to this point after so many years.

    Ah well I tend to pop up in and out.

    1. Diz


      I know that feeling.

    2. DanJ86


      Yep, I very rarely post in the topics too.

    3. MightyRay


      *nods* I'm slowly starting to drift away from the place. Some days it feels like a slog to read through certain threads let alone leave a comment...

      It’s gotten to the point for me where I’m only posting for moderator purposes. I was never much of a poster but I’ve nevee gotten to this point where I’m hardly doing it. Haven’t been motivated to do otherwise for quite some time now. 

      Main thing I’m doing in addition to my job here is interacting with members in the statuses and trying to encourage and lend a helping hand whenever I can. Otherwise that’s pretty much it.

      Mr Loopone

      I've been feeling the same way even though most of my time online have been more of an observer than a poster. Just feel more like this lately, even status updates have to be the right one for me to post.

  12. ...Did an event happened or something? I see a lot of new topics about upcoming games
