      OPPOSITE FOR MEE:0

  15. Yeah, I'm quite fond of bowling. I used to go to an alley not far from where I live with my brother and my dad. I suck at it, though, so I often craved the arcade a few steps away instead^.^; They even had fast food:0 And I went to another one somewhere in the eastern part of England and the whole arcade was SEGA themed. Sonic plastered all over the shot*.*
  16. Y'know, playing Sonic Lost World kinds makes me feel like I'm playing the intro to Sonic CD. Must be the parkour, and I luvs it. x3

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      To be honest, Unleashed gave me that feeling more. Maybe not the Sonic CD intro specifically but generally like "wow Sonic is playing like he looks in tv shows/cut-scenes"

    2. Kamakai

      Kamakai

      Yeah, Unleashed did have a lot of those fast, awesome sequences. It's just that a lot of them were automated, and I felt like I was doing the magic in Lost World, but I still see how you feel that way.

      And I know, SCD intro was just the first example that popped into my head:)

  17. Thinking about ____ makes me want to ____.

  18. Do you guys remember when that Sonic High School storyflooded the boards? (not trying to bring that back into the light, just curious.)

      It's the time of day.

  22. The dash pads were far more useful in the boost series, for the simple reason that the gameplay was built around reaching the goal as fast as you can. The dash pads not only speed you up, they occasionally send you running in the correct direction and assisting you in passing through loops, and such. In the free-roaming, open-world Adventure series, they were probably there to give you a helping hand through the areas that would be tedious to run through without them. Still... slightly overdone. And 06 probably has them because it would be as slow as shit otherwise.
  23. I feel like playing through the iOS Sonic 2 update... Goodnight, SSMB:)

  24. Sorry for the bump and the unnecessary length of my post in the utter positivity topic, but I just felt the need to show the series some love. Plus, it's a fairly recent topic, so I hope it was acceptable:)

  25. (I've yet to play Lost World, so please bear with me on the lack of any thoughts or observations that are relevant to the game, Wii U or 3DS. Thank you in advance.) Ah, the Sonic series. I could mindlessly ramble on for hours about the things I love about my undisputed favourite gaming franchise. However, for the sake of detail, I will only focus on a few that come into my mind. And I've got to say, one of the first things that makes this franchise unique amongst countless others is the sheer depth of the in-game universe, particularly game-specific settings and locales, but also the achievement of tying it all into a coherent, expansive universe that is rich and teeming with life and variety. Green Hill Zone, Act 2. Sonic Generations. Chemical Plant Zone, Act 1. Sonic Generations. Flame Core, Silver. Sonic the Disaster Hedgehog 2006. (Sorry, gotta be positive.) Radical Highway. Sonic Adventure 2. Starlight Carnival, Act 1. Sonic Colours. Cool Edge, Day. Sonic Unleashed. The screenshots above capitalize on my statement. The universe is expansive and genuinely interesting, which makes it a joy to interact with. It has such a wide range of areas to explore and rush through, often noticeably different in tone and pace, yet it manages to tie it all together into one universe that has managed to create and (to a certain degree) sustain it's identity. After 20+ years of games and settings for this series, I see this as a remarkable accomplishment. Not many video game series have a universe with so much variety, and yet also with an instantly recognisable feel, and this is the main (yet only one of so, so many) reasons I applaud the franchise. Also, the variety in atmosphere and setting of a singular level, is truly something to make note of. Take, for example, Sonic and Knuckles' Lava Reef Zone. Yes. These two screenshots are of the same zone. The transition is so subtle, yet so effective: Sonic (or Tails/Knuckles, but I digress) treks through the inside of the sweltering Lava Reef Zone, which cools down slowly and takes on a cooler colour scheme to magnify the change as Sonic reaches the Hidden Palace Zone, the sacred holding place of the seven Super Emeralds. (The existence of them in today's canon is questionable, because they seem to have been written out in favour of the outside altar, but as long as there is no proof against them existing, I don't see why they shouldn't. Plus, that's a topic for another thread.) That is a downright masterful implementation of atmosphere in what is, may I remind, you, a 16-bit game from 1994 that lacks any dialogue or method of storytelling barring simple sprite cutscenes and the music, which happens to be my 2nd favourite aspect of this series. (That is, most Sonic music, not exclusively this game's.) And while some may argue that Skyscraper Scamper does not fit in a world with Windy Hill and Starlight Carnival, I see no legitimate reason as to why an immensely popular fictional universe should be held to a single style with no variety or experimentation. I have absolutely no issue with Station Square and Aquatic Ruin Zone being in the same universe, because despite the obvious difference in aesthetics, they share a distinguishable style: A crazy, yet occasionally serious place, filled with inconvenient architecture, whether it be on questionably designed harbours or sunny pastures, littered with item boxes, gold rings, speed booster pads, rotating lampposts and seven mystical chaos emeralds that are the balance to everything. And that, to me, is the Sonic series' greatest triumph.
