  1. Just when I thought the XBOX brand is getting to its former glory and even new heights, they make the worst PR Move of all time

      Your PR move is even worse, for you cannot accept that people like different things >:U

      @Polkadi~☆ Just because I think this is the worst PR move in the existance of human kind, doesn't mean that I'm not open to things or that he isn't correct.

       

       

       

      Because he totally is correct

  2. As someone who never really adored Icecap's soundtrack like a large chunk of the fanbase seems to, I feel like both it and Carnival Night sound way, WAY better with their Prototype OST. Launch Base is fine, but I prefer the soundtrack of the MD release.

    1. JezMM

      Honestly original Launch Base sounds more fitting for a "last stage" (or rather, climax stage since at this point it wasn't intended to be the last stage) than final Launch Base, but I still adore the final version for how chilled out it is. Really adds to the summery, "lazy sunday afternoon game" feel that I personally get from Sonic 3 standalone.

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      You think so? Final Launch Base fits fine, I feel.

      The part that kicks in at 0:31 always gave the funky beat a "something's not quite right" kinda vibe to me, and the constant "GO" adds a certain urgency. The prototype one just sounds triumphant and happy - it almost feels like a "Yay you did it" credits tune.

    3. JezMM

      JezMM

      Huh, that's interesting.  Weirdly I can shift my mental gearstick a bit and find it very easy to see your interpretation of the melody - with just slightly different instrumentation/backing tracks or something it wouldn't take much to shift the song into sounding more ominous, but in it's natural state it just sounds like chilling at the beach kinda music for me.  Like, the Project Chaos remix might be more obviously chillout, but to my ears, it matches the tone I got from the game version exactly:

      Meanwhile the prototype/PC track is upbeat but a bit more "you're in an industrial place with lots going on!" vibe.

      Oh, and to my ears, the "GO!" samples didn't add a sense of urgency, they just came off as a thing that added to the "cool music" mood of the song, just adds a stylish flair, like Sonic Rush's vocal sample-heavy music.

  3. I didn't really care for the PC Version's tracks, but something about the Mega Drive instrumentals makes me like them a lot more. Huh.

    1. Milo

      comparing the PC versions to the beta versions, the credits song got the best glow-up by using the MD instruments, i'll tell you that

       

    2. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      They kept that song playing for like 30 mins or so after they were done showing the beta and I didn't close the stream till it stopped cause I was tryna listen to it

  4. Where are all those prototypes coming from anyway?

    1. Solister

      Solister

      Wonder the same, but over it, I think that's might be the last time we'll see Classic Sonic prototypes around. I mean, I don't think that there's still so much prototypes lost around.

      Likely, I imagine drx got them in some kind of auction and received a box of old Sonic prototypes. And much likely wasn't for a low price.

  5. There are so many new Pokemon on the first routes in SwSh, it's amazing

  6. Got Pokemon Shield.

    Let's hope it keeps my interest in the series going.

    Also love how the price dropped to 50 bucks before/at release. The games being barely more expensive than the 3DS releases at launch is kinda funny.

      Looks like an artsy version of Kameo. Wonder how it would play.

  8. SEGA AGES might stop before we'll ever reach the Saturn era and that's a shame.

      :(

      Now I'm remembering the SEGA Heritage Collection that only had like three games for it because that was unceremoniously dropped

      What is it with classic game collections/ remasters and stopping right before 3D/ 5th-6th gen stuff

      Is this the same interview where he said that 2019 game will absolutely not have a Pokemon compatibility issue like Gen 2 -> 3 did?

    4. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I mean technically speaking it doesn't, the Pokemon it has in the game can be brought over just fine, unlike gen 2 to gen 3. 

      But that does come with that sarcastic thinking macro.

  9. Holy shit, the backlash is taking enormous proportions

    Maybe that'll help to finally give the franchise a shake up.

      This status update made me look up Limp Bizkit, thanks for that.

  10. Disney will just buy all the worlds servers to make Disney+ work

  11. Basically all I hear about Pokemon since the leaks and datamines are "This got removed" and "This isn't a thing anymore"

    I hope the main campaign is worth a damn because oof

    1. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      So far the only thing that got removed that was actually a good thing was all the grinding to breed good Pokemon and the need to breed for Pokemon with good stats altogether

      Everyone is just focused on the negatives right now soooo

    1. Noodle Panda

      Don’t the games kind of do that already?

      The wild pokemon you encounter in certain parts of the game are usually at a lower level than those of the next gym leader you need to face, with areas containing higher levelled ‘mons not even being accessible until you’ve beaten certain gyms.

    2. Noodle Panda

      Noodle Panda

      If it’s a mechanic that stops you from trading/transferring in higher levelled pokemon on the other hand, that’s good.

    3. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Sure, but the wild area now has Pokemon of all kinds of levels roaming around. I don't think this is an enormous issue, but I feel like if you go underleveled to a mon and are brave enough to face it when you could get stomped easily, you should be allowed to catch it.

  13. Banana Blitz makes me actively hate Super Monkey Ball

    While I think this is kinda excessive, I still wish the Roster looked more like this than what we actually got.

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      I agree. It baffles me that rosterwise, the Sumo-made racing games got progressively worse over time.

      I was really disappointed when SEGA confirmed that Secretary wasn't going to be playable in TSR. She's been neglected for far too long.

  16. Felix the Cat turns a whopping 100 years old today! His debut short Feline Follies, where he was still called Master Tom, was released on this day in 1919.

  17. Still sad about the ARMS comic

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Did it get cancelled? Arms was a bit of a flop. According to Wikipedia it sold in excess of 2 million units, which is good in its own, but all interest in the game died out pretty rapidly. Nintendo kept the game going with support for a while. I guess. I just don't think think that Arms had much of an impact.

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      Before Arms came out I really was thinking it'd be the next Splatoon mainly because of its multiplayer aspect and fun character designs. Sad to see that it pretty much died.

    3. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      We don't know if the comic got cancelled, but we haven't heard of it in like 1 1/2 years, so I'm not holding my breath.

      And yeah, while it wasn't a huge hit, 2 million copies isn't bad at all and since the thing is written already, I feel like it'd be worth a shot to release the comic. ARMS is full of fun, interesting lore implications that the game doesn't fully elaborate on, so I wish the comic would be a thing so we could delve into those things a little deeper.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Personally I'm not all that bummed out about it. Although it looked ridiculously funky and creative, the gameplay didn't interest me enough to even give any of the demo events a go. The fact that it was designed to use motion controls primarily stopped it from being a second Splatoon-like hit.

    5. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      This is one of the many reasons why games need to implement a good chunk of their story content in the actual game and not wait around for side media. Arms had a very interesting world going for it but they chose to rush out the online elements with bare-bones content without supplementing anything else. Now we have a new lore opportunity dead on arrival.

  18. Any reason why the Game awards have to be on thursdays instead of

    Y'know

    A freaking day later 

  19. Disney: We're gonna release Disney+ in western Europe starting in the last quarter of 2019 and will have released it in all western Europe by Quarter 2 of 2020!

    Also Disney: Only releases it in one western European country in 2019 and releases it in other major European countries on literally the last day of Q1 in 2020

    I mean, technically everything they said is true, but lol

  22. Disappointing to see the outcome of the M&S 2020 game, but expected. They focused on cute fluff like outfits and the retro modes, but the core problems (lack of depth, content and long time replay value) stayed the same. Can't make a game better when you keep the flawed core and just add frosting on top.

    1. Tangled Jack

      Tangled Jack

      What? I really disagree. Cute fluff is only a bonus like the outfits and didn't really change the roster sadly, but outside of that, there are 44 freaking sports, more than any console Mario & Sonic, a fun story mode, online for every event, they added depth to most of them which wasn't a thing until Sochi, the Dream Events aren't many, that's true. But aside from these things I don't know how could they improve the series further. I'd rather see it end with Tokyo.

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      There's barely over 30 sports, where are you getting 40 from?

      Online mode doesn't change the fact that the games don't have much depth. The vast majority games are barely deeper or more fun than an average Mario Party game, only stretched over a longer period of time. Many of them are nothing more than "played once, moving on". Either you work further on them or you just have to add more, because at this point, it's clear that those games can't hold the interest of many - even less if you've played any of the previous entries and are familiar with most of those events, because they change barely. You can't even play them with new characters because they've stayed the same for a decade! Even the dream events are disappoiting - how often can you play through the same skateboard track or shooting area without getting bored? 

      You have to add more modes, tourney modes you can play with friends instead of just single matches and literally nothing else, more challenges, more ANYTHING that keeps you going back. As it stands, it's a party game that seems to barely be fun at parties, and a story mode doesn't change that. I want to bust the game out with friends and have a good time with them, but button mashing to make a character run doesn't do that. 

      It's better than rio, sure, but only because Rio already had an abysmal line up to begin with.

    3. Tangled Jack

      Tangled Jack

      Not only but it's over every sport count in any episode of the series, I don't think they can do better than that tbh, there are 34 events in total plus the 10 Tokyo minigames, which are supposed to be the fun mission type of things in the story mode. The deph includes a lot of tips and tricks to master each event, so you can beat the very hard difficulty cpu, it was the same in Rio although for only 14 events… uh. Obviously it's not Tennis Aces level of care but that only has 1 sport to focus on, here there are tons, you get the idea. The problem is the roster which is the same since 2010, it got old fast.

    4. Thigolf

      D8zY0s-UwAIUwkf.jpg:large

      Again, I'd really like to know where you're getting the additional 10 events from. The ones here + the 10 retro events still make barely over 30.

    5. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      I think Jack is counting the minigames you can do in the story mode which... even if you count those, London still has it beat with 31 events and 39 bonus London Party minigames with a total of 70 games all together.

  23. 45 Minutes for Terry is absolutely insane but if it's anything like the Banjo Kazooie commentary from Sakurai I will enjoy every second of the video
