  1. Why isn't the dumb Boost music distortion effect a toggle

    Why won't they let me listen to the music they composed

    1. Indigo Rush

      You'll listen to your high pass filter and you'll like it

      You like how they give GH and SS in Gens unique variations for boosting... and never did anything like that afterwards?


      Me personally, boosting should just add an extra drumbeat on to the unfiltered music, like the yoshi bongos in SMW or when you're frontrunning in Mario Kart

    3. charmsb


      Yeah the boost filter stinks. If you're playing Gens on PC, there's a mod for that.

  2. >1 hour Steam Deck Digital Foundry



  3. Every time I look at the Pokémon logo, I dislike it more.

    I dunno, it just doesn't look appealing to me anymore.

    1. Zaysho


      The western logo is definitely a product of its time and I've wanted it replaced for years lol

    2. Strickerx5





      Call it nostalgia but this is still probably one of my most favorite logos out there. Seeing it just instantly takes me back to watching the show after school and obsessing over the cards. Also glad it hasn't been scrubbed/ modernized tbh.

    3. Zaysho


      I personally wouldn't mind something that's a bit closer to the typefaces that the JP logos usually use. Doesn't really need to be the boring minimalist, free font bullshit everyone's doing these days


      Though ironically, the JP logo for SwSh does follow the western logo's lead which is kind of funny


      I think it depends on the context used too. It's usually not a big deal on game packages but stuff like movie posters something about it feels slapped on. It's a similar problem I have with Sonic's current brand logo.

    4. Thigolf



      I dunno, just looking at the japanese ones, I wish they'd do more with the english ones.

      Like, at least change up the colors for the logo? The same blue/yellow clashing against different colors just...looks garish to me, honestly.

  4. There's part Splinter Cell in Ubisoft's new Tom Clancy game

    It lives


  5. This is the best thing I've ever seen

    1. charmsb


      There's an official Super Monkey Ball channel? They really need to promote this more, there's not even 1000 subs yet.

  6. Steamed Decks - it's a regional dialect.

      How(Pfftb!) Much(Pfftb!) do(Pfftb!) Steam(Pfftb!) Decks(Pfftb!) Cost?

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Hmm mmm, what state?

    3. Perkilator


      Dear God, what have I created?

  7. I do wonder how much the dock for the Steam Deck will be.

    1. VisionaryofSUPER


      Didn't they say it was like $80 or something around that range?

    2. Thigolf


      I haven't seen any official prices.

  8. Not gonna lie, I love handhelds, so I'm kinda intrigued by the new Valve one.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Agreed, the idea of playing stuff like GTA V, Arkham, and more recent games portably intrigues me.

    2. AWild No.1 washed up gamer

      Whaaat?? I needed this yesterday.

    3. shdowhunt60


      I think it's neat, and it's great that VALVe is making this thing to a price point, but at the same time those ergos look funky. I get hand cramps from the Switch depending on what I'm doing at times, so I'm pretty weary of it.

      But kudos to VALVe, if there is a single company that would be able to do what they did, it would be them.

    4. KingMario05


      What the Switch OLED should have been. So, so, so fucking hyped for this!


      ...even if I'm never gonna be able to afford the useful one lol


    5. Teoskaven


      I'm miffed because strict Valve games like Team Fortress 2, CS;GO or L4D are best played with mouse and keyboard. It's clearly made for third party purposes, but still.

    6. Supah Berry

      I kinda bit my lip at the thought Epic Games might be inspired by this to make their own handheld after their fiasco with Apple forced them off of mobile platforms.

      Then I realized Fortnite and Fall Guys are already on Switch and they likely would just put their other exclusives there too, so I guess there ain't no need.

  9. The dialog Hunnid P has with himself in Death Chamber cracks me up every time, it's freaking amazing

    1. JezMM


      I always think it sounds like something a 7 year old playing with their Sonic and Knuckles action figures and super absorbed in their game would come up with, complete with all the nuance and cadence a 7 year old kid's delivery of said dialogue would have.

      That's just how Sonic and Knuckles talk to each other.

  10. Something I never quite understood is why the button mapping in console games is often so limited for... honestly, no reason I can think of?

    Like, besides fighting games who do it pretty consistently, games often just give a handful of control scheme options and I don't understand why they don't just let people freely pick buttons? Just have an error message if not all buttons are set and you're good, right? It's not a big deal in most cases, but it strikes me as odd.

    1. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      This is the exact reason I never bought any of the Dark Souls games on console. I have no idea what the fuck they think the standard button mappings are supposed to achieve, putting the attack buttons on the face buttons was incredibly necessary for me to get any enjoyment out of them

    2. JezMM


      Certain developers (Nintendo is terrible for options menus in general because of this attitude) just really seem to think that with enough testing and iteration, they can find the perfect control scheme/settings for all players, without thinking of the outliers because... well, they don't think there will be any outliers if they can get it just right.

      Or they're somehow afraid that having big options menus is too scary and not user-friendly for less experiened players.

    3. StaticMania


      The switch in general allows you to change button mapping through controller settings...

      Probably not per game...wait, there is a save as preset option.

      If it really matters.

    4. Wraith


      More and more developers are avoiding this pitfall, but yeah still frustrating to see from an accessibility standpoint. I think Hardware/OS developers should be the ones mitigating this instead of disabled gamers having to just hope a given dev acts right, though. 

    5. JezMM


      Oh, I forgot Switch has custom button mapping.  Stuff like that is good as long as it can be saved per game AND allows the player to setup single button alternatives for stuff that involves holding multiple buttons etc.  However it can still be an issue with context sensitive commands.

    6. Jango


      Custom button maping should be the rule in every game and I'm glad some devs are noticing that and going even further regarding accessibility. 

    7. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      This is actually the reason why I can't get into Shining Resonance Refrain because the attack button was oddly put on the circle button and not on either the X or square buttons which completely threw me off and I just don't like it. I can't change the settings for it either which sucks because it has everything I like about it in it like playable dragons and a musical theme. Guess you can't win everything.

  11. Terminal Velo City Zone

  12. Fucking LOL at the TSR 30th anniversary edition

    They're desperately trying to make the package more appealing with basically anything but I dunno, actual ingame content and it's hilarious.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Again, if they want to get rid off all the unsold copies, couldn't they put it in a double pack with any of the upcoming title?

    2. Wraith


      i thought it was strange to expect more content but i'm surprised they're not just going ahead with a PS5/XSX verison

    3. Thigolf


      I stopped excepting new content once they stopped talking about the game a week after release, but I think it's funny how desperate those measures seem. It's pretty clear what people want, they knew it even before launch, and yet all they've tried is a two in one pack once (not even half a year after the original release) and those weird merch bundles twice now, I'm surprised they're still bothering. 


    4. Kuzu


      They probably made a bunch of copies expecting to sell more than it actually did and are now trying to get rid of them lol.

  13. Holy Shit that Planet Wisp Remix goes HARD

  14. NGL tho, strictly design wise, the subtle changes to the dock and the color looks way more appealing than the base models of the Switch.

  15. Sir Percival, babyyyyyy

  16. When Ian Flynn asked why Angel Island was part of Sonic's world and then was in the Human world and how that happened, Sega's official answer was

    "It was by a miracle"

    ngl, this gave me a good, hearty laugh.

    1. Teoskaven


      Don't you mean a chuckle?

    2. Wraith


      that is pretty good

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      The Sonic version of “A wizard did it”

    4. Dejimon11


      Did he say it in a passive aggressive way like how the master emerald can’t neutralize them chaos emeralds but then he gets notes that it can?

    5. Thigolf


      I'd say it was dumbfounded with a hint of annoyance.

    6. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      What's hilarious is they could have easily put the blame on the Chaos Emeralds reacting with the Master Emerald to cause the entire landmass to warp to Earth: but no. Never crossed their mind. Bruh.

    7. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      The two world setup is dumb, but could easily work with a light retcon and handwave explanation here and there, but they just can't be arsed to really care. Its maddening.

    8. Diogenes


      in sa2 rouge says bringing the 7 emeralds together creates a miracle. in sonic x, the characters, and later angel island, are warped to earth due to chaos controls using all 7 emeralds. that is what the miracle is.

    9. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      The miracle is that despite that, Chris is not canon

    10. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I believe in miracles, and I can tell you why

      One game franchise that I play, sits on throne of lies

      Hung up with Bull--Shit mandates, handwaving everything

      Making shit O----v'ly complex




      And if that isn't a True Blue Miracle, I don't know what one is

  17. After Smash Bros' hype cycle is over I'm gonna stare at the Fraymakers one all day

    1. Dejimon11



    2. Teoskaven


      Did the dev said that if the game manages to be successfull enough they're gonna add more?

    3. Dejimon11


      Yeah I believe so. I also know that they gave backers the ability to vote for which indie character they wanted to see.

    4. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      What the hell is Fraymakers?

    5. Dejimon11


      Smash Bros featuring Indie characters. Made by the guys who created Super Smash Flash 2.

    Original character do not steal

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      This is…a really odd idea. For a start, part of the charm of Monsters Inc is unique designs, a repainted Mike is lazy as fuck.

      But even at that, how is he Mike’s arch-nemesis? How the hell would he even measure up to the success that it’s stated only Mike and Sulley really managed to achieve (IE - starting from the ground up as mailroom guys and continuing up to scared through hard work?)

      Mike’s new role works because Monsters University made such a hard point about how Mike isn’t remotely scary (although that frankly is up for debate). What the fuck are the odds that some random dude who looks exactly like him goes through more or less the same success story in order to measure up what would qualify as an arch-nemesis?

    2. Thigolf


      I dunno why he has to have a similar success story to be an arch nemesis?

      Guy waltzes in, he's as funny or funnier than Mike, boom, arch nemesis. I don't think it's gonna be more complex than that. At most, they'll shoehorn a "Mike knew him from somewhere" backstory in there.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      I guess so, but arch-nemesis implies a long term rival. Like Randall is a arch-nemesis to them both because he knew them in college and they ruined his chances, kicking off his desires never to be shown as weak again.

      Seems weird and shallow to me to just have some recolour dude waltz in, be a little funnier (which is counter intuitive because frankly they made such a huge deal out of Mike’s appearance previously) and suddenly - arch-nemesis. It wouldn’t be a big deal to me if he had a unique design, it’s just Monster University is quite literally based around how “cutesy and pathetic” Mike looked, compared to others (again, YMMV because I don’t think Mike would just be non-scary to everyone), having someone suddenly appear looking like him and presumedly - having the same degree of success, if not more - which the trailer seems to imply a little at least - is just off to me.

      Mike Wazowski getting a Vergil is funny ngl

  19. Concert merch is fantastic news, but I hope they don't forget the good ol' download format.

      What concert merch?

    2. Thigolf


      Nothing concrete yet, but I'd be very surprised if there came nothing out of this.

  20. High School Love might've not made it but I'm happy this masterpiece has

    1. Perkilator


      Fiji didn't make it, either. It's a pretty popular track, so you think it would've been a no-brainer song to pick.

  21. Please look at this


    1. Milo


      Those eyebrows

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Same energy


  22. Also, for those who are disappointed by the Mii costumes today - keep in mind Sakurai talked that those Mii costumes in particular have been wanted as standalone fighters, so he's certainly aware of their popularity and has them on his mind.

    So, if there is another Smash with Sakurai at the wheel, chances of some of these characters making it in, while obviously not guaranteed, are pretty solid. 

  23. I just noticed - we didn't get any new Tekken Mii Fighters.

    I was so sure a King head would be a lock.

  24. Shantae is in as a Mii with a Music track this is great

  25. Revisited the Sonic Symphony and they added time stamps ❤️

      Oh that's so nice if them. I know Katie mentioned in the livestream on Thursday that they would look into it. 

      Does Aaron Webber still engage much with the Sonic community in Twitter? I was surprised not to see him during the Sonic Central event. When he stepped away from the community manager role to move up in SEGA's ranks I thought that would kind of be it for the Sonic socials. But Katie (and the rest of the team Tbh) has so far done a really awesome job, and she's not just riding on Aaron's coattails either, which she so easily could have done. The symphony looks like it was a huge passion project for her in particular.
