  1. Players have encountered a strange noise in the Demons Souls remake and fans are speculating it's Metal Gear REX from MGS1. They think Bluepoints games who did the Demons Souls remake (and did the MGS HD Collection several years ago) are teasing a MGS1 remake.

    About 2 months ago a youtuber said a MGS1 remake is being developed for PS5 and PC (also that a collection of MGS titles; MGS2,3&4 - not remakes - is coming to PS5).

    Would be awesome if Sony have bought the rights to the MGS franchise. Regardless I just hope these rumours are true.

      Doesn't even sound like Rex. 

  2. Unleashed still has best intro:


  3. Least I can play games on my laptop with the the Dual Sense controller (until I get a PS5). It plays games fine. Don't particularly like the texture at the back of the controller which feels weird. A bit heavier than the Dual Shock 4 and doesn't feel as comfortable to hold as a DS2, DS3 or Switch Pro.

  4. Good advice:


  5. Colours is 10 years old today and remains my favourite Sonic game since the Adventure games.

  6. Hope we get another animated short in December. We go Sonic Mania Adventures "From A.Rose" in Dec 2018 and "Chao in Space" Dec '19. Would be cool to get another one this Christmas.

      I don't think we'll get anything this year, at least not on their scales. We haven't had any animated shorts this year, whether it's because of COVID or it was already planned to be wound down.

      Why drop something in Dec? If they wait 30 more days they can slap a 30 Anny tag on it and pile that onto whatever else they are planning.

      An animated short is one of the few things they can do that would have a solid chance of being good. No reason to squander that goodwill on year 29.

    3. Solister


      The fact Mania Adventure already is 2 years old makes me feel old...

      @Sega DogTagz and why not drop something in December AND tag as a 30th? How bad can it be? We receive a Christmas short, a 30th anniversary confirmation and especially, make the fanbase completely hyped for 2021.

      About the topic per se, I don't have an opinion. I think everyone agrees shorts are cool and I don't see a marketing reason to don't do so. But I do hope Covid don't screw up things. Hopefully, how hard can it be to make an animation in distance?

    4. Wraith


      The shorts can be worked on remotely. If they planned one for this year it's probably still coming out 

  7. New 4-week lockdown announced for England starting Thursday.

      Well, for England anyway.

      The other nations are doing their own thing.

  8. The truth was in the stars...


    1. Teoskaven


      I don't get it.

      I hope they got an exorcist in their ranks. Having a demon puppet running in your house can be a nuisance. If Sonic doesn't become possessed himself, they should be able to handle it.


      Implied to be the Tails Doll they're talking too; Miles is Tails' formal name. (Or they're all dolls and Tails Doll is possessed by normal Tails? I dunno)

    3. Teoskaven


      No no, that i understand. I don't get to what kind of announcement this short is attached to.

      Nothing, just another generic Happy Halloween tweet. Yes it ain't Halloween but maybe there's a follow up

  9. Received my new phone today. Galaxy S20.

    The Sonic 1&2 mobile remaster apk's still work fine. That's the most important thing ;)

  10. Rosalina's backstory in Galaxy is my favorite piece of story out of all the Mario games I've played. The illustrations work well and the music feels perfect.

    Also nice that it's optional story.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's a cute, effective and overall interesting story. But there's a very limited selection of good Mario stories, especially if you just look at the main series games. It's a pretty low bar to find the best.

    2. Shadow Chaos Control

      Shadow Chaos Control

      Rosalina has in many ways overshadowed Princess Peach. I enjoyed Rosalina’s story in Galaxy too. I currently have her Aurora and Witch variants in Mario Kart Tour. I need to unlock Rosalina from Galaxy.  

  11. 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

    4. KHCast


      I hope we get sand hill 

  12. After several attempts I managed to do the cave-skip in Odyssey's Moon Kingdom (so I can go straight to the Bowser final-boss without having to go through the "Underground Moon Caverns" area). Very satisfying to pull-off. A lot harder than it looks:

  14. I've now 100%d Odyssey for the first (and last) time :D



    Yeah, the second Bowser final-boss is barely any harder than the first.


    In the space of a month I've played SM64 & Galaxy for the first time and 100%d both games.  Also now 100%d Odyssey. Think I need a break from Mario.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Was it fun and worth it? I rarely find 100%ing games to be fun, personally.

    2. TheOcelot


      Nope. It's an absolute chore going for 880/999 moons in Odyssey. There's way too many and it's a bore-fest trying to find them because of how the game is designed especially when the Odyssey's main story finishes so early.

      I have a good time going for just 500 moons which unlocks the super-hard level "Long Journey's End", but it's not worth playing on after that.

      Much more satisfying 100%ing Galaxy, better designed game overall. Isn't too bad going for 100% in SM64 now that I know the game inside out, but yeah definitely a chore in parts. 

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Then why did you do it? Lol 

      100%ing Galaxy as Mario to unlock Luigi is great fun, because each of the missions is enjoyable. You never feel like you're unsure of what to do next or that you're just drudging through masses of filler. Sunshine has lots of filler, 64 has some and Odyssey is like... Well it's mostly filler and I don't like the game very much at all.

      Just thought as I'd already 100%d '64 & Galaxy I'd see if I had the patience to complete Odyssey.

      Normally I don't go for 100% unless I really like a game. As for Sunshine, I've played it a little (got like 12 shines) but don't like it. In no rush to go back to it.

  15. 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!


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

  17. 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.

  18. First look at PS5 user experience:


    1. darth_tails


      Looks very good, will have to watch this properly after work!

    2. Thigolf


      I like how streamlined and sleek the main menu is, but FUCK is everything tiny. And so much emptiness in the middle.

    3. Jango


      It's gonna take some time to get used to it

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      As a trophy hunter, I love a ton of these. Having progression bars on activities, and trophies. Letting me immediately jump straight to an objective, and so on. This is going to be so handy.

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

  20. 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.

  21. 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!

  22. The number 3 in a social media post.

    Sonic 2 is free on steam for 10 days.
