    Double Agent Motobug got a reaction from UltraGizmo64 in SONIC THE HEDGEHOG (2006) Development Thread   
    They SAY the slowed it down to show the details and animations... I think it was just lagging/the best stable speed they could give it at the time. xD

    I remember on TGHZ , there was a guy that claimed to be a tester for Sonic 06, and was going over a lot of bugs, but was trying to remain hopeful, until he finally just broke and said that SEGA wasn't listening to any of their feedback, and that (I think?) they got fired or something to cut costs. I remember him saying that Rouge's eyelashes used to fly all over the place in demo builds. He turned out to be legit I think, since a lot of those glitches he mentioned did show up in the final build. o: ...

    Double Agent Motobug got a reaction from Legosi (Tani Coyote) in Sonic Boom 2014 "I wanna be apart of it, New York! New York!"   
    I'd like to go, but I doubt I'll be able to. There's a chance I may be able to bunk with friends and split a hotel though. Hype, but alas, it all really depends on what happens this summer, for me.

    Yeah, I've previously admitted I've been disenchanted with the franchise as of late. Mainly due to the quality of the games. Why is this character suddenly acting like someone else? Where'd this other guy go? Where are they, was this even explained?

    Sonic needs a solid direction more than anything. We need a basic gameplay style that accurately translates the classics to 3D - I feel like Adventure is the closest we've gotten. We need a Canon Bible - clean up the excess, give it a soft reboot by retconning all the unnecessary bullshit out of existence. Instead of reinventing the games every time, improve and build upon them. Add new ideas into the gameplay, but keep the base mechanics. Level design that focuses on flow and building up speed with skill instead of instantly obtaining speed with a button press. Multiple playable characters built off the same gameplay with different abilities.

    Oh, and ORIGINAL handheld titles. Colors DS started this nasty trend of having portable versions of console games. If you stagger the releases of two different teams - console and handheld, then perhaps there will be more development time to help the game reach its potential.

    Generations was the last game I truly enjoyed. I saw Lost World and really didn't like it, but I warmed up to it because everyone was gushing. Luckily I realized my mistake 3 days prior to release and just bought The Wonderful 101 instead. On top of that, Boom is taking the franchise in a direction I really don't like.

    We just need better direction. No more experimenting with the main games, leave that to the side ones.

    Recently, two of our long-time staff members, Sean and Pelly, resigned from their mod activities. We here at the SSMB Staff are forever grateful for the influence they have had on these boards during the years and will miss them dearly. We would like to take this opportunity extend our heartfelt thanks to them for their years of service.

    With the stride that Sonic Boom is hitting and the heated discussions on the boards the Staff has done some thorough discussing, and we decided to recruit some active and varied new blood to fill the void. These are familiar names you might know, and we're very excited to bring them on board.

    Many of our members might have had a keen eye already to the details, but without further ado, please welcome SuperLink, Azukara and Ogilvie to the moderator team!

    Hey, I figure this is probably the best place to mention something like this, so I will.

    I was playing Sonic Rush again for the first time in a while, and decided to try the last story again. I recalled having difficulties understanding the last story's intro the other times I'd played it years ago, so I tried again, just to see if I was just dumb, or if it was really just hard to follow. I understood it this time, by the way. xD Anyway, When I beat it, I watched the rest of that cutscene, and I'm not going to use spoiler tags for this one, since it's old news, but I'll warn you that I'll be talking about spoilers anyway, just in case. Skip the last bit of my post if you haven't beaten Sonic Rush.


    -

    Well anyways, I got to the part where Blaze wants to leave as a stranger, and Sonic tells her to wait, and says "This is from me." and there's a series of "..."s and a "...!" from Blaze. What was implied there? I mean, there's no animation going on there, so we're kinda left to wonder what happened. I forgot, but I believe Blaze says something like "I see..." right after, and then both agree they'll see each other again. Then they're forcibly splitting apart, and they reach out for each other, as if not wanting to have to go separate ways so soon, and when they split up, both reach out in desperately for each other. Huh. Then back in her world, she doesn't mention getting a parting gift or anything from Sonic's world.

    o_o wonder what that was, eh? xD Should we stash it with the rest of the implied Sonaze in the series?


    EDIT: Also, Blaze is my second favorite character in the series. =) Infact, I believe my cast of favorites comes right out of Sonic Rush Adventure. Sonic, Blaze, Eggman, Tails and Marine. I don't know about Eggman Nega, though. He's not as appealing as Eggman.

    Hey, I take huge offense at this: 
     
     
     
     
    I am NOT a nerdy white kid - I'm a nerdy white MAN. And to prove it, here is a picture of me with my daughter: 
     

     
     
    I jest, of course; I really am a nerdy white guy, so what can I say
     
     
    Thanks for reviewing all the Sonic OCR albums,DJ Ear! Glad to see Temporal Duality get the highest marks

    Double Agent Motobug got a reaction from Syntax Speedway in Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)   
    Hmm, Personally I hope Marza has something to do with it, and that it's similar to the intro to Sonic Unleashed. That'd be pretty sweet. It'd be really really awesome if Wreck-it Ralph could somehow cameo in the movie too, (Fix-it Felix Jr in the background of a scene?) For reals though, I wouldn't mind at all if they borrowed the Unleashed/Colours/Generations (Pixar) style. If they write it as though it was the plot to one of the more cohesive games, I figure it'd be fine. Wouldn't it be hilarious if the 3'rd Nintendo-exclusive Sonic game was based on this movie (or vice versa), by Sony pictures? XD lolol.

    What I'd want to know, is who would be scoring the movie? I'd hope it'd be Sega's usual culprits. I'd die if someone like Naofumi Hataya could score the film and have it all epic and Sonic CD'ish. Gaaaah. Sonic and hip hop  beats and funk music.... gskgfdsgdsgfds It works so well. I just wish Naganuma was still over there hanging out with SEGA!

    (They had better release a soundtrack)

    (....PS, if they use the game actors (likely), oh lord Amy's voice... XD)

    Oh my gosh, there's that guide panel that pops up to the left of anything you do on Google now, to access your subs/favorites/uploads/etc, and in Opera (I haven't tried in anything else as it's my main/favorite browser) the stupid guide thing opens automatically partway through videos and covers a portion of everything, and I have to  manually close it. every. time. It's on every page of the website, but is only covers things when I'm watching videos, otherwise it just shifts everything over to the right a bit, and makes everything lag a bit. 

    Lame.I really am disliking the recent changes on "Youtube+" lul. Grumble grumble Newtube is lame let's use YouTube classic.

    Double Agent Motobug got a reaction from Cola in [ART] FiG Tinychat Flockdraw insanity (Feat. everyone)   
    There was also this. Cola drew Super Sonic, while I did Blaze, the Blaze sketchy face on top, and I was going to draw Shadow but Cola drew a mustache ontop of it, then Xenos coloured it all funky, so I put a banana on Shadow and...YEAH. SHADNANA THE FRUIT.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Here's Super Pappil with his PSP (...I know, -Mark- will eventually find it creepy how much Pappil shows up in all of these Tinychats. XD WE'RE ALL FANS.) because Super Pappil does not exist (yet?) and neither does his PSP. Then Jeffhog and I were derping around with the pictures of Sonic and Blaze I had there. (Jeffhog coloured Sonic =D)

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Double Agent Motobug. Came from a convo where I was trying to explain the ONE DASHING MOTOBUG in Classic GHZ to Egg Carrier. I told him "One of the Motobugs is special!" and he almost instantly was like "DUDE, DOUBLE AGENT MOTOBUG?!". We lolled, then I had to draw it. xD

    -----------------------------------------------------

    While the stream was listening to slow-motion Pokemon episodes and LOLLING at the clips (Wolfy and I drew Ash and Gary respectively up there, coloured by Xenos), Punk was doing sexy artwork of Yoko and the Anti-Spiral. He forgot the "drool" thing that the Anti-Spiral has going on, so I pointed it out, and that's why the speech bubble says "It's not semen". (I hope)

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Punk, Azu and I being awesome. Azukara did the Eggman, Punk was drawing the character from Dead Leaves(?) that I forgot the name to already because I suck, and I did another thing of Blaze as part of a request.

    Ok lets see.
     
    The only way I can now comment on something, including my own videos is to get a service I do not want nor do I need since for the last 8 years I could do that without this new service.
     
    The only way I can now get messages from other youtube users is to get this service which I do not want nor do I need since for the last 8 years I could do that without this new service.
     
    If I no longer want google+ or it becomes compromised and gets deleted, it will also take out my entire youtube channel despite that being a seperate website and service.
     
    I get google+ and I now end up having one of my online identities tied to it, it can then be put onto this 'circle' things without my permission.
     
    "But wait you can modderate those circle things"
     
    Why the fuck should I have to do that? Explain to me why for the sake of features which are built into the original site (youtube), that I should I now have to register at a completely different service and begin changing the settings just so I can run the original service.
     
    Imagine SSMB installed some kind of mass facebook intergration and the only way to change your user settings was to log into Facebook and change the settings there... Thats what this thing has done! You have to modderate your settings on another website, just so you can use what have been default and standard settings for the last 8 years on another.
     
    I join google+ I now have to monitor any 'changes' google+ does to it's TOS since that will influence my youtube channel, as well as my google+ account from now on too as well as other stuff that it's going to link in with.
     
    I now have to RELY on other people to join google+ in order to get an idea as to how I can improve my own videos and content since thats the only way you can leave comments now.
     
    I now have to RELY on other people to join google+ to get in touch with me who have seen my videos, liked something, wanted to offer me something.... I have been sent gifts from people on youtube, I have bought itsems from people on youtube... Every single one of those either used the comment system or the PM service on youtube... You know what they all had in common? Not one of them used google+
     
    Everyone now has to join two seperate websites/services just to perform actions on one site which for 8 years worked completely well without a second service.
     
    And if you have google+...
     
    #hastag comments are in bold so they stand out more which means now your entire comment list will be full of hashtags as people try to get attention#
     
    No character limit in the comments, so now you can get huge spammy comments which people have just posted for the sake of it.
     
    The spam button has far too much power, some mega popular video owners have already reported that nearly 50% of all comments on their videos are now marked as spam when they're not, including those of the video owner.
     
    And thats all I can think of for now, but hey it's only been 24 hours I'm sure we can find more by this time tomorrow.

    <3 He makes a reference to SatSR many times too, including in the first stage of the last story:

    "Who was it that kept calling me a rat?" or something like that. xP

    But yes! I totally agree, they're pwning with Sonic's personality lately, and I totally love it <3 They should keep the writers they have now, for this game and Unleashed, for like, ever. <3

    Double Agent Motobug got a reaction from Cola in Fantasia Skrillex Edition   
    Having watched the Harmonix livestreams recently and seen lots of great gameplay footage, I can safely say that I was totally right that Harmonix would deliver a really imaginative, fun looking experience. Also, Orchestral Bohemian Rhapsody sounds sweet as heck and I'm very excited to hear more remixes and remix combos from this game. 
     
    Seriously, check out some of the gameplay footage on Harmonix' YouTube page from their Twitch streams! Totally sweet~ Hopefully now people can stop complaining and just enjoy it for what it is. (Also, can I request the goofy topic title be re-named to the proper "Fantasia: Music Evolved" title? Skrillex hasn't got anything to do with this... (yet) xP)
