  1. In December eight years ago we got this announcement:

    Good times! ...sort of

    1. Tarnish

      Tarnish

      That Tails dyed beard is still cringeworthy for me.

  2. I purchased the PC version of Sonic 3D Blast (got it for £2 on AmazonUK).

    It's the first time I've played the PC version (only played the Saturn version via crappy emulation). Plays pretty well. It actually works fine on Window 10. The soundtrack (same as the Saturn version) has some really nice pieces, although I prefer the Genesis soundtrack overall. The better graphics also have some nice weather effects added to them; like the rain in Rusty Ruin.

    The special stages which are different to both the Genesis & Saturn version are kinda meh. I mean they're easy enough with fuck-loads of rings to collect (the seventh special stage is the only particularly tricky one) and they are probably more interesting than the Genesis ones; but the bomb placement is pretty unfair. A lot of the time you'll run straight into a bomb without enough reaction time to avoid it, and the special stages are too generic to remember the bomb placements particularly well. A lot of the time it's more beneficial just to smash into the bombs to collect the rings around them and the controls are a little slippery, but it's not a big deal as there are plenty of rings to collect to make up for hitting several bombs.

    I'd like to be able to play the Saturn version one day.

  3. Decided to play Sonic Forces again. I have no idea why...

  4. Was hoping Tee would do remixes from other games, but wasn't expecting Sonic 4

  5. What if the next Sonic game is a brand new 2d game but made by Sonic Team?

    1. Jingilator

      Knowing their current 2D section fetish, I wouldn't be surprised.

    2. Jango

      Jango

      Don't even play with this 

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Remembering when we thought is was Dimps fault for Sonic 4?

    4. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Wasn't that Sonic Forces

    5. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      i trust sonic team with 2d sonic even less than i trust them with 3d sonic

    6. TCB

      the cynic in me wants to see that happen

      Guess would become something like Rush/Colors DS. Don't think would be that bad but also think no one really would pay such attention. As mentioned, not that Colors/Generations/Forces aren't this.

      + I once even wrote a similar topic about this, but taking 2.5D in the matter.

      ++ 2D doesn't mean Classic, then things would be a different thing (Which I have no expectations on what could lead).

      sonic runners 2

    10. Jango

      Jango

      I... Actually would be 110% ok with runners 2

    11. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      i'd say it'd probably be my tipping point but with how most of the games within the last decade have basically already been 80% 2D... eh

      guess just put a few more nails in that coffin there

    12. Sean

      Sean

      I've already played Sonic Colors on the Wii though

    13. Jango

      Jango

      I love 2D, don't get me wrong. But we really should get a full 3D Sonic game. Let Taxman and co. handle the 2D games FFS

  6. Erm...yummy

      Is Robotnik supposed to represent a particular frame? I can’t tell.

  7. Final episode of Life Is Strange 2 was released today.

    I've played the previous 4 episodes and it's no where near as good as the first series.

    1. Solister

      Solister

      Life is Strange 2 didn't caught my attention since it was announced. Sorta good to see I'm not missing anything.

      I mean, the first Life is Strange was a bait for me, I loved the beginning (Mainly Episode 1) and it seems as further as I was going, it seems way more the writers were using drugs to connect things. Maybe it were consequences of my decisions, though I heard it always end the same. I never played Before the Storm though I think I should.

      Still then (And can even relate as a writer of similar genres), Life is Strange was no doubt a franchise with outrageous potential, but seems it fell into bad writing ruining everything of it.

  8. Meh...

     

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      The first iteration was so underwhelming (not to mention, the company still email me, even though I blocked them) that I give this a hard pass.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I liked the first print, but it was missing loads of potential content and much of what was there was lifted from Wikipedia. It was a lazy, shoddy effort in many ways. The fact that it was a limited edition, but has now been re-printed with additional content really winds me up. The Forces and Mania should have been in a smaller book, or held off on for a few more years until there was more content to add. "Meh" is an understatement.

  9. Just watched "Beating Eggman" parts 1&2.

    1. TheOcelot

      Image result for sonic that's what friend are forWatched the next episode.

  10. Just watched ep10 of Sonic X "Satelite Swindle". Eggman loses the baseball game and then just leaves with both (blue and green) emeralds, but Eggman only had the blue emerald, he never got the green emerald from Tails.

    Wut?

  11. All of a sudden everyone is buying an Xbox1...

      Except me.

      With Scarlet coming out next year, I just see no point. 

    3. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I don't have any interest in getting a XBox still

      Everything I want is elsewhere, though I have nearly everything I wanted anyways

  12. Just watched episodes 7 (Party Hardly) ,8 (Satellite Swindle) & 9  (The Last Resort) of Sonic X.

    Lets see:

    Ep7: Cream is annoying!

    Ep8: Wonder if "The Dr Eggman Show" was kind of inspiration for "Egg TV" in Studiopolis?

    First appearance of Tornado X

    Sonic was frozen in space but didn't die....erm

    Ep9: Eggman screampark

    Amy took out Sarpenter all by herself and Sonic saved Amy and can now swim...apparently.

  13. Wonder if SEGA will ever rerelease any of the other 3D Sonic games (not that they're rated highly enough or sold well enough to warrant a new release). SA1, SA2 were rereleased on most platforms last-gen, SLW was ported to Steam (the Eu PSN release of Heroes & Jp PSN release of ShTH doesn't count).  

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      most other franchises get rereleases in spite of reception

    2. JezMM

      JezMM

      I really am surprised that Colours still hasn't got one considering it's reputation, not that I'm PARTICULARLY bothered about getting one.

      I'd really like an HD port of Heroes and ShTH but their iffyness probably means they never will. I liked Shadow and would play it semi-often back in the day where it didn't require me to change which consoles I had plugged in.

    3. Solister

      Solister

      I think a Heroes Steam port is the more likeable now. Rather than that, Maybe (But very Maybe) Unleashed and Colors for PC. I mean, Heroes I guess is the most "urgent", as Sonic '06 is being fan remade, Unleashed have Project Unleashed and Colors runs pretty well on any mediocre PC using Dolphin.

      I also say that I think we should get a new compilation of the likes of Mega/Gems Collection. Recently, I've seen many people interested on replaying Sonic R and Sonic the Fighters or even classic ones like S3&K but haven't many alternatives.

      Can't argue much about consoles as I own none.

    4. Menace2Society

      Menace2Society

      From what I heard, they lost the source code for the original boost gameplay engine they used for Unleashed, Colors, and Gens, which would totally explain why the former two still haven’t gotten PC releases and why Forces used Lost World’s engine. I would be shocked if they actually did get rereleased. 

      Shadow and 06 are obvious. Doesn’t matter how the big the demand for them is. They’re not gonna just rerelease two of their biggest blemishes on the franchise like that.

      Idk why they haven’t rereleased Heroes yet, though. I guess they just had no interest in rereleasing it.

    5. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      The 'lost source code' thing is completely unsourced and stems from weird speculation because SEGA apparently lost the source code to... House of the Dead. 

       

      The real reason Forces was made on the LW engine was probably because it was more up-to-date in terms of development pipelines and the team were probably more familiar with it (particularly, Morio Kishimoto - who worked on LW but not Generations). 

  14. The Geek Critique's latest video: ShTH

     

  15. Happy Thanksgiving

      this is the most morbid thanksgiving greeting i have ever seen

  16. Green Hill zone will be in the next new Sonic game.

      And it'll be this song playing from now on

       

  17. Just watched Episode 4 of Sonic X season 1 "Chaos Emerald Chaos". Eggman's badnik "Beacon" tossed Sonic around in the air like a rag doll and Chris got the first chaos emeraaaaald. 

    1. Panda Claus

      There's an entire thread that was essentially all about dunking on the animation in X. It's from 2011 so there are lots of broken images, but it might be worth looking at for some cheap lulz.

       

  18. Rumour; PS5 to have full backwards compatibility with PS1, PS2, PS3 & PS4 games.

     

    1. Jango

      Jango

      Fuck. Me. Please be true. I'll finally sell my PS3 haha

  19. Today is the 26th anniversary of "Sonic Mania Day"

     

  20. If you could create a new move for Sonic for a new 2d game (much like how the drop-dash was created for Mania), what would it do 🤔

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      not an entirely new move, but i've thought about the drop dash activating on walls rather than just the ground. it'd give sonic a little more vertical movement without being as powerful as flight or climbing, and depending on how the variables shake out it might even be possible to use it like a wall jump, alternating drop dashes up the sides of a vertical shaft.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I've never given it much thought, and don't think you can do easily just come up with something brand new in the spot like that. You've got to find something that's missing, and something that that fills that spot naturally. If not, you end up with crap like SA2's Magic Hand...

    3. Sean

      Sean

      Not a new move but I think the jump dash in the Advance games (particularly in 2, since it was rather useless in 1 and didn't have much forward momentum) is a good move and could use more appearances in 2D Sonic

  21. Never forget:

     

    1. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      Some of Elise’s in-game voice clips still use her old scratch-recording VA too (which I’m certain is Veronica Taylor)

    2. SonicXtremeMania

      SonicXtremeMania

      Imagine in Sonic Adventure 2 cutscene where Amy recuse Sonic from the prison as outtake.

      Sonic: Did you seen him? Where he is now?

      Amy: If I tell you, will you marry me?

      Sonic: Yes I--wait a minute wrong that part try that again Amy.

      Amy: Okay, Sonic. If I tell you, will you marry me?

      Sonic: Maybe...shit I did that again. Cut! Try again again, Amy. Please don't let me screw this up this time okay?

      Amy: Ugh, Fine! One more time, if I tell you, will you marry me?

      Sonic: ……...

      Amy: Well?

      Sonic: ……..,.

      Amy: SONIC! SAY THAT YOUR LINE OR I'LL SMACK YOU WITH MY HAMMER!

      Sonic:......What I say that part again?

      Amy; THAT DOES IT! TAKE THIS YOU CHILI-DOG LOVING ASSHOLE!

      Sonic: W-wait I got it, no w---(gets smacked by Amy's hammer) FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCKKKK!

      Amy: There and now CUT! Can I take a break okay?

      Director: Okay, miss. Let's try that part again later.

  22. I've never watched a single episode of Sonic X...until now. I've just watched the first episode "Chaos Control Freaks" (via Amazon Prime).

    Gotta go faaaaaaaaaaaaast

    Watch out for the S Team!

    Oh and Sonic can't swim and nearly drowned. Okay....

    1. Tornado

      You can stop now. It's not too late.

      I've got the whole thing on blu ray. Feels weird considering missing an episode when I was a kid was like the end of the world.

      I really wish this thing had the Subbed version though. It had a better soundtrack, better jokes, better lines, and honestly, better atmosphere because it knew when to not play music. 

    3. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Still have the subbed version saved to my external drive and super glad for it, cause I can't stand X's horrendous dub at all.

    4. JezMM

      JezMM

      Yeah, the music is the absolute biggest factor to me. I seriously wonder about the musical taste of the person at 4kids who decided "every character has their own lemotif, and it plays every time they say ANYTHING or do ANYTHING and sometimes even when they are doing nothing but are present too actually".
