  1. Hope we get Emerald Hill instead of Green Hill in the next Sonic game.

    1. neezTHEhuman


      Nah Hill Top is best in that level trope.

      I hope we get sunset hill.

      how dare you ask for heterogeneous checkerboard hillsides with slightly more grass

      I hope we get sand hill 

  2. I've achieved 997 moons in Odyssey :)


    Well...it's actually 999 because I previously purchased some extra moons. By collecting 999 I got the top-hat on Peach's castle and the the fireworks display which is...kind of a meh reward.


    Obviously you need to collect all 880 moons in the Kingdoms to get the Odyssey to turn Gold & unlock the (slightly) harder Bowser fight. I didn't realise this, I thought 880 moons would unlock the harder boss fight regardless as to whether you have purchased some moons instead of  collecting them all in the Kingdoms. Makes it feel like allowing the player to purchase 119 moons to bring the total to 999 is kinda pointless. I mean, I know you can unlock Dark Side of Moon (250) and Darker Side of Moon (500) even if you've purchase some moons which will help weaker players, but the reward of a top hat & fireworks display for 999 moons feels underwhelming when you don't even need to have collect all 880 moons to get this reward. 

    I think 880 moons (not allowing any additional to be purchased) and then getting the harder Bowser fight, Gold Odyssey and Top Hat & Fireworks at the same time would have been more appropriate.  

    The two remaining moons I need to collect are in the Dark Side of the moon in this stage; which is fucking hard:

      Also collected all purple coins & Souvenirs.

    2. TheOcelot


      ...and I did it, got the last 2 moons!


  3. Collected 970 moons in Odyssey. Getting so close...

  4. Trying to reach 880 moons in Odyssey (which I've never achieved before). My total so far is 830. I want to unlock the harder Bowser boss fight (by achieving 880 moons). I worked it out, there's still 120 moons I can find and another 49 moons I can purchase.

  5. Oh look, Sonic 2's free on Steam

  6. Having now played SM64 I can finally understand/appreciate the references to '64 in Odyssey's Mushroom Kingdom; such as Yoshi being on top of the castle, draining the water round the castle and using the paintings to access levels (in Odyssey's case-harder boss fights) and when entering the castle in Odyssey stand on the "sun" on the floor and looked upwards and get awarded a (star) moon, whereas in SM64 doing this takes you to the stage which unlocks the wing-cap.

  7. Youtube recommended a piece of music from Galaxy 2. I listened to it and...NOW I REALLY WANT TO PLAY THIS GAME!

    Come the fuck on Nintendo, bring this to Switch next year!

  8. The number 3 in a social media post.

    Sonic 2 is free on steam for 10 days.


  9. The Sonic equivalent of 3D All Stars would be; 3D Blast, Heroes & Secret Rings.

    1. JezMM


      I think most people don't consider 3D Blast a truly 3D Sonic game.  I feel it'd really be more like Sonic Adventure, Sonic Heroes and Sonic Unleashed to be as close as possible in terms of console generation and relevance to each franchise's steps through making 3D games.  Of course, Sonic had a bunch of games inbetween these that bridge the gaps, whereas Mario firmly mixed things up for every title.

      You could arguably place Colours instead of Galaxy if you wanted to go for the most well-recieved game of the generation.  And Sonic R instead of Adventure if you wanted to be pedantic about matching Mario 64's console generation more directly.

  10. 100%d SM64 :D





    ❤️ Yoshi

    Thanks for the 100 extra lives... Would have been more useful at the start of the game ;)

  11. What game are you currently playing?

    I'm playing Super Mario 64 and Metal Gear Solid.

    Going for 100% completion in SM64. Got 117 stars so far. The final stars are in Rainbow Ride (managed to get 4 of the stars in RR without any problem. Dreading going for 100 coins star).


    Edit: Now 118.

    1. Adamabba


      Sunshine. I have around 40 shines left till 100%.

      Real excited to play Galaxy after I'm done with this

    2. DanJ86


      I thought I'd try the Super Mario Bros. 35. I have no idea what's going on when I play but it's still pretty fun. Had no problems playing online so far, which is odd.

  12. Playing MGS on PC. When you fight Pyscho Mantis playing on PlayStation you had to plug in a second controller instead and use that to beat him. Well, on PC plugging in a second controller doesn't work. You have use the keyboard instead to beat him.

    So I tried using the keyboard and the keys weren't mapped correctly so I was totally screwed.


    So, I remapped the keyboard controls, but it's still far more cumbersome than using a controller.

  13. Doing another playthrough of SM64. I managed to get the star off of the tail of the Eel in Jolly Roger Bay (which I couldn't do no matter how many times I tried in my first playthrough) and I also found the secret star in the Jolly Roger Bay hub room which I've never found before.

  14. Finished playing Galaxy yesterday. 100%d both Mario & Luigi playthroughs.



    Apart from the "Cosmic Comet" where Luigi's rival is harder to beat than Mario's, Luigi's playthrough is pretty much identical. Needing to do two almost identical playthroughs in order to 100% the game probably comes across as unnecessary padding, but I enjoy the gameplay so it doesn't bother me and playing as Luigi is cool.

    What's Galaxy 2's gameplay like? Is it pretty much the same as Galaxy?

    1. Dejimon11


      Yeah it’s the same but the stages are smaller

    2. DanJ86


      You got to play as Yoshi. Unlike in Sunshine, he is able to swim and has unique fruit powerups. You had to use the Wiimote curser to target enemies or interactable objects to have Yoshi eat them. Mario also had two new powerups, a rock power and cloud power.

      The hub World is also way smaller and the way you travel to galaxies felt more inline with New Super Mario Bros.

    3. Sean


      Galaxy 2 doubles down on the focused, tightly designed linear platforming that 3D Land and World would go on to perfect. I prefer the first Galaxy overall, but 2 is an improvement in all the ways a sequel ought to be.

    4. Adamabba


      stages are smaller and more platforming focused, Yoshi's in it, there's new powerups too

    5. JezMM


      The "second quest" is much better as well in Galaxy 2 (to the point that they don't seperate them, Galaxy 2 just straight-up has 242 stars in it rather than two lots of 121).  It does still have some bad filler along the way, but it's overall more enjoyable than just playing the game again with slippy controls.

      But yeah, other than the subtle level design differences mentioned above and the new powerups + Yoshi, the game engine is identical, so playing Galaxy 1&2 back to back does just feel like one very long game.  I'd also say Galaxy 2 has the better soundtrack of the two, a lot more live instrumentation used gives it a much richer sound, even on the non-orchestral pieces.

    6. Wraith


      There's a lot more filler in galaxy 2 but the levels that are good are worth playing the game for. Hopefully Nintendo gets it out there sooner rather than later since I've seen a lot of curiosity about it. 

  15. I decided to do a Luigi playthrough as well:


  16. I decided to download the PC version of MGS1 available on gog.com and it plays fine. Seems at least as good as the original PS1 version.

    Snake and enemies/speed of the game moves more quickly than the original PS1 release. 

    1. TheOcelot


      This version has five difficulty settings; Very Easy, Easy, Normal, Hard & Extreme, whereas the original PS1 (I played) only has Easy, Normal, Hard & Extreme. Also in this version Extreme mode is already unlocked, whereas normally you have to beat the game on a lower difficulty setting in order to unlock Extreme.

  17. I've now played and beaten SM64 and Galaxy. The former is a good a game, the latter is an excellent game.  Galaxy might just have pipped Odyssey as my new favourite 3D Mario game. 


    Galaxy is also the first Super Mario game which I've 100%d (well almost... fak u Luigi :P)

    I really want to play Galaxy 2 now!

  18. Okay, so I've achieved 120 stars in Galaxy. Do I have to fight Bowser again (same final boss as before) to get the 121st star (and unlock Luigi as a playable character)? 

    1. Sean


      You need to beat the game with Luigi to get the 121st star with both brothers. I'd save Luigi for a future playthrough since it's mostly just the same campaign.

    2. TheOcelot


      Yeah, playing with Luigi sounds cool but if it's pretty much the same as Mario then I'll play Super Luigi Galaxy another time 😉

  19. Now 118 stars collected. Only 2 purple comets left, which are in the Dreadnaught Galaxy (which I've tried already and don't like) and the Melty Molten Galaxy.

  20. 116 stars earned. Getting ever closer to 100%ing Galaxy. Working my way through the Purple Comet challenges:


    I like the different challenges. Some are; "collect 100 purple coins-some with a time-limit, some without, and some have more than 100 purple coins available within the time-limit. Some easy, some boring and some annoying.

    1. Mil-O-Lantern


      good luck with the purple comet challenges at toy time galaxy (luigi's purple coins) and ghostly galaxy (purple coins in the bone pen). both of those missions are among the hardest levels in the entire game.

    2. TheOcelot


      Yeah, toy time galaxy challenge was a pain. Ghostly Galaxy wasn't too bad, only took a few attempts.

  21. Looks like the original Metal Gear, MGS1 & MGS2 are getting a Steam release which is cool. Really hope the MGS1 remake for PS5 rumour is true although I doubt it. I'd settle for a MGS1 (the original version), 2, 3, 4 & Peace Walker collection for PS5.

    1. pppp


      Here's the problem, MGS2 is the original 2003 PC release, not the 2011 HD remaster by Bluepoint. It's SEGA releasing emulations of Sonic 1 and 2 on Switch instead of the Taxman ports all over again.

  22. Achieved 101 stars in Galaxy.
