Rawpowered got a reaction from Solkia in 30 Days of Video Games
I used to watch my Mum play Sonic 2 and 3, but I myself never played them, plus I was about 3 years old so I couldn't do much on it even if I tried. No, my gaming career begin 1997 with this gem of a game. Absolutely adored it, I play it every now and then to reminisce and, of course I got the 3DS remake.

After adding Spy and SBAHJ badges? I agree with Aoi, you're no fun.
"HEY! Sonic, stop getting in my way! I'm trying to punch a god in the face and make him explode! Also, I think my fist in your eye is gonna sting a bit. Just saying."
Rawpowered got a reaction from LoseR in Rawpowered's Metalsmithing stuff
As some of you may know I am currently studying in a course for National Diploma Metalsmithing. The course covers Blacksmithing, Jewellery and Welding. Now there are quite a few things I have produced so I thought I might as well just show them.
I did do a First diploma first to move onto this course (that was basically a year of preparing for the National Diploma) so I will be showing the somewhat primitive work I did last year too
Now obviously there's a limit per post on how many photos a time I can upload, so I may have to double or triple post for them all, sorry =P
Anyway, I hope you like them:
My Hanging Basket Bracket (Last year)
The overview of it, as since in my Introduction in the Introduction thread
Close up of the corner scrolls I did, all bound together with custom made clips
The hole for the screw, I choose the design of it because I saw it somewhere and it wooked pwetty :3
Fish Ring (Jewellery, Last Year)
A copper and silver mixed ring in the shape of a fish. Yeah I don't really know what I was thinking either but hey, it got me a Distinction and was an entry in the Young Craftsman of the Year Award. I didn't win it but it's still nice for it to be on display.

Now for something I made very recently, A Hammer:
Overview of the Hammer. I am really happy of how it turned out been using it only a couple of times. It's quite short, but it does have a good swing into it. As for that white patch, only just took off the price tag off for the photo =P
Close up on the Hammer head and the front face.
Bird's Eye View. The logo design is my Maker's Mark (DO NOT STEAL!!!!!!!!) It's a little messed up unfortunately, but hey, there's plenty more opportunities for me to make more hammers
That's all I have at the moment, but I have some stuff I've yet to photograph. Really all just tools like Chisels, Punches and Tongs, but I'll take photographs of them nevertheless
Cheers mate, didn't really know where to dump this so I just left it in General
Rawpowered got a reaction from altum_dolorem in Asura's Wrath
Just played the demo and I quite enjoyed it. The gameplay isn't anything special and involves ALOT of quick time events, which are surprising fun for once. The art design is fantastic and the soundtrack is amazing The cutscenes are especially fun to watch because in Mission 5
Rawpowered got a reaction from midori in The most inspiring Sonic songs.
Took me a while to think this but:
1. Unknown from M.E. (Sonic Adventure 1)
Knuckles is hands down my favourite Sonic character. Sure in more recent times he's becoming somewhat of a joke character (much to my annoyance). Sure the rapping vocals from Dread Fox aren't perfect but Marlon Saunders' soul lyrics are just fantastic. He is an amazing vocalist, I would even recommend listening to some of his stuff. He is very underrated if you ask me.
2. Dry Lagoon (Sonic Adventure 2)
I do have to agree with Dr Mechano, Rouge's levels had some top notch jazzy music, definitely the best in the game (though I thought Knuckles had some pretty good music too, Death Chamber's lyrics are hilarious though). Dry Lagoon is my favourite of them. It's one of those songs you can just listen to, no matter what mood and then just chill out to it.
3. Sand Oasis (Sonic and the Secret Rings)
Alot of people never saw eye-to-eye with Secret Rings, but for me, it's a guilty pleasure. I just absolutely love the soundtrack, it was your tradintional Sonic rock/metal mix combine with a little authenticity. Sand Oasis stands out for me for it's amazing sitar work in it. Pirate Storm was close 2nd.
4. Boss Theme (Japanese) (Sonic CD)
This theme is simply amazing. It really helps you get pumped up for the boss fight, as opposed to the US version where it seems like the boss is going to fuck you over before you even know it. The vocals of the song are quite good too
5. Mephiles (Phase 2) (Sonic the Hedgehog 2006)
I've always had a soft spot for Mephiles. What he does in Sonic 06 is something that Dr Eggman may need to write down for the future. What is so grteat about this song is how eerie the intro is, leading to a monstrous metal theme. It just make me feel like Mephiles is not a guy to fuck around with. I guess there was some good after all in Sonic 06, of course the good isn't even close to outweighing the bad of Sonic 06 =P
