  1. Got hit on the first few spikes in GHZ, died first in Green hill zone act 2 against the boss since it took me a while to figure out how to beat him and got my first game over in Flying Fortress act 2 against the boss (I died a lot on that stage, and then I got crushed to death by the spikes against the boss). Yea, I know I suck. Eh, it's still fun.
  2. Ahh Sonic Mania is so fun. I just finished Chemical plant Zone 2 and it really reminded me of Portal 2 with all the gels and gel tubes. I guess if there's this kind of innovation for all of the old levels, I don't mind the nostalgia zones too much. 

  3. Finished my final exam and with that, it's the end of school. Even though my official graduation was a while ago, it's only really starting to hit me now that my exams are all done. It's a weird feeling. 

    At least I'm getting a PS4 soon. That's something to look forward too.

      I hope you pass all your exams!

  4. Sonic Forces has create-a-character

    Pointless. I guess it's one way to sidestep making an actual new character or using any of the established cast. I hope it actually has decent customization and gameplay.
  5. Sega is releasing a brand new, revolutionary game. Nothing competes.

  6. I decided to catch up on SSMB and see if there was any new news while I was walking around, and I accidently walked into the girls bathroom and stayed there staring at my phone for a few minutes as a result. 

    The girls were understanding (although quite giggly), but that was quite embarrassing. There was nothing new here either.

      Oh damn, thinking about it that way it would have been really easy for a girl to attack me for it. Even though my phone was facing down, and it was obvious I went in by accident. 

      Some people are evil enough to try to twist anything into a sexual harassment/rape case. I have to be careful...

      Late reply, but I thought I went through a hallway. I don't go to public toilets.

      I know it was really stupid. 

  7. Would you say shows like Panty and Stocking or Avatar are anime or cartoons? What's the distinction for you?

    1. Yeow

      Yeow

      Well, the unofficial term for Western animated shows that look like anime is called animesque. Avatar and a few other cartoons (The Boondocks, Marathon shows like Totally Spies!, etc.) are usually described as that category.

      PSG (Panty and Stocking) would essentially be the inverse of that, but I don't think there's a term for that though.

    2. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      Oh, well that's pretty simple. Probably easier to call PSG, Dead leaves, etc cartoonesque then. Even if it's not a proper term, I'm sure the sentiment gets through. 

    3. King Koopone

      King Koopone

      For me, Avatar (and Korra) is a cartoon influenced by Japanese [and a bit of Chinese?] work and Panty & Stocking is an anime influenced by American work. So the former as a cartoon while the latter is an anime. It is a bit of a strange thing in general but I call anime Japanese cartoons for simplistic reasons, just that Panty & Stocking as well as say Lupin the 3rd are more Western influenced than usual by the animation/art style. Plus anime being so niche where I am (it's just Pokemon on TV) that only students would known what an anime is.

      It just depends whether the writers/production team and the original work is American/Canadian or Japanese. Those examples are clear enough. It gets a bit harder by co-productions though like many French-Japanese or Spanish/Italian-Japanese stuff though. I don't know if Alfred J. Kwak is a cartoon or an anime as an example. Besides many cartoons and anime to a smaller extent have their animation done in South Korea or China.

    4. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      That's a great question. I think as long as it's still the same style, it's anime.

      Technically, Boondocks is anime too

  8. I don't think the point is that Japan is bad at making games (I sincerely doubt anybody could even dare think that with Nintendo around). Rather, it's that it could be harder for a Japanese based company to make a game appealing to the west when Japanese and Western cultures and interests in games are so different. I'd disagree to some degree anyway, considering Sonic isn't some anime styled game and platforming is a pretty universally popular genre. But either way, I really doubt the sentiment here is racist. I think it's a bit unfair to be so critical of Sega for hiring Pontac and Graff. They are professional freelance writers, who have written moderately successful shows and have some involvement with writing stories for games. I don't blame Sonic Team for thinking that they might be well fitted for Sonic. They should have had kept much closer tabs on Pontac and Graff to make sure they did their research, but that's pretty hard when you're so far away, not familiar with English and have some faith in professionals. On that note, has Pontac and Graff been confirmed to be working on Sonic Forces?
  9. Jesus christ, London is still safe people. We've had much worse happen before, our police know what to do.

    Stop blowing things way out of proportion. None of us are in any more danger than usual.

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      I don't think anyone is overreacting here. Just expressing concern for what is still a terrible thing to have happened even though it's on a lesser degree to other incidents and I have no idea why you have a problem with this. 

    2. KHCast

      KHCast

      Wishing for people's safety is not overblowing anything. 

    3. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      We should be giving our condolences to the victims. Not jumping to conclusions and assuming London is unsafe and that we're all in danger. 

      This is what terrorist attackers want, for people to think London is dangerous now. 

    4. KHCast

      KHCast

      I feel like you're looking way into this. We can do both, and it's implied and should go without saying our condolences 

      Like what, you want people to not bat an eye at this, af not have basic human reactions?

    5. OcelotBot

      OcelotBot

      London has good security, it's as safe as it can be. Nothing is ever truly safe.

    6. Kiah

      Kiah

      People have been expressing their condolences as well as their wishes for everyone to be safe. If one life is lost due to someone's total malice and respect for life it's one life too many and we have no idea how much farther this could go. Hence the concern which is something we humans should display towards one another especially in times of distress. 

      That said I really don't understand your stance here. I don't understand it at all. 

    7. Apollo Justice

      I mean, you can still wish people to stay safe given the current situation over there.

    8. Lucid Dream

      It's pretty obvious that I'm referring to people who think London is in some kind of extreme danger when I say "blowing out of proportion". A lot of people seem to think London is in a lot of danger.

      @Kiah my point is quite clear. I'm saying that we aren't in danger and that you don't need to worry for us unnecessarily. Just send condolences to the victims. 

      It's just suspicious how people are acting like we're in so much danger. It's being treated like a terrorist attack, but it's not confirmed yet. 

      Hoping for the best is very different to immediately jumping to conclusions, assuming we

    9. KHCast

      KHCast

      Again, why can't we wish safety for people? If one person in my city all the way on the other side got killed by someone and the killer was on the loose, I'd still express condolences and safety for people even if they were nowebere near the attack. I don't think it's hard to process expressing people be careful or safe = assumptions that the place is some danger zone where killings always happen

      No ones jumping to conclusions by saying that stuff

      "It's pretty obvious that I'm referring to people who think London is in some kind of extreme danger" 

      Good for you if you don't think London is a danger zone. If you look around a little you'll see a lot of people saying Europe and the UK is under threat. I'm not just talking about people here. 

    11. Kiah

      Kiah

      Your point isn't clear to me and it never will be mainly in part due to being a very sympathetic person. If I am concerned about the well-being and safety of others no matter what the circumstances or the said scale of said circumstances are behind it then by all means I will feel it and express it like I always have. 

      If you think I or anyone else is overreacting due to feeling concern for others then that's on you. Seriously I don't know what to say about that and I still don't know why this is bothering you so much. And no one here is saying nor implying that London is in "extreme danger" but enough had happened for some of us to feel concerned and express that said concern. 

    12. Tara

      Tara

      I think what he's trying to say is that people are acting as though London just fell victim to a 9/11 scale attack when they weren't.  He's not complaining about people expressing sympathy for the victims, but expressing discontent for the people trying to paint the incident as a much greater than it is and spreading fear beyond what is rational for the context of the incident.

    13. PaddyFancy

      PaddyFancy

      I can understand the need to put up a stiff-upper lip and carry on as normal. That's the best way to beat them. Besides, the terror threat level has been like this for a few years, so its been "in extreme danger". People can carry on but there's no harm in showing concern. I, myself, am going to London soon.

    14. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      @KiahThe reason you're not understanding my point is because you're only thinking about yourself. Stop twisting my words. 

      The second paragraph isn't aimed at you if you're just giving condolences. This is aimed towards people who think terrorists are invading Britain. That's extreme danger. Not everything is about you lot. 

      Basically what @Tara said. I've repeated this point several times, it's not just about you. 

    15. Kiah

      Kiah

      I'm doing no such thing so I suggest you get off the selfish kick. You're the one twisting my words saying I'm making this about me and that's just wrong. It's because of my concern for others that I said what I said among many other things.

      You came across as being dismissive towards those expressing concern and per other comments here I wasn't the only one that thought this. You didn't make your point clear in addition to the implications otherwise this status update wouldn't of gone the route it did. Tara's comment cleared things up thankfully.

      One one hand, I give condolences to the people who were lost during the hit and run as well the attacked police officer. It'll be a bit weary and security might be tightened for the week so it'll make London a bit edgy however worse has happened. It is thankful that the police arrested the man that did this.

      Remains me of the time when I went to London for a school trip then a month later the 7/7 bombings happened, a terrible event that killed a lot of people.

      On the other hand, I completely get what @Lucid Dream is saying. If it was done where I live (London by comparison is safer, at least for a majority of areas) or nearby Bradford that happens a lot more often with hit & runs (I was a victim myself and luckily on got a scratch on the arm) and attempted police killers it'll be shrugged off, it also wouldn't be on national news either. Maybe 5 minutes worth and front page of the day on local news at most. Axing over 2 hours worth of TV programming for this event on 2 major channels is a bit overblown just because it happened in London and not anywhere else in the country. Honestly I thought until I looked it up that something much worse happened.

  10. Hooray for new year money! I got a nice amount of monies to dump on a nice, pricey game.

    So, what game should I get? I'm thinking devil survivor 2 or Nier Automata, but I'm open to suggestions.

      I really enjoy Shadow of Mordor and personally can't wait for shadow of War to come out

      Let's put it this way. If you love Lord of the Rings, and Assassin's Creed, this is the game for you

  11. I decided to watch Panty and Stocking to see how a Cartoon based anime would be like. 

    I'm disgusted and amazed at the same time. It's an experience.

      Panty and Stocking is my fav vulgar cartoon/anime thing.

      It's one of funniest and most offensive anime I've ever seen. The action is fantastic as well. 

    4. Nix

      Panty and Stocking started showing up in my related videos on Youtube again, so I decided to give it another whirl.  I loved it then and I love it even more now. For such a vulgar and offensive show, it's ... honest about it?  Like it doesn't even try to pretend it has any morally redeeming values, and it's complete disregard for absolutely fucking everything makes it so bad it actually becomes surprisingly endearing.

      The action's fun too, and I love it every time they blow up those silly little models of the ghost monsters.

    5. Lucid Dream

      The characters are very refreshing. I love how much of an irredemably disgusting asshole Panty is and how much of a hypocritical bitch Stocking is. It's charming in it's honesty and style. It feels empowering in a strange way. 

      I think the characters are my favourite thing about the entire show. Especcially Knee Socks. 

  12. So I just learnt that a childhood friend of mine that I lost contact with was also a huge Sonic fan. 

    Well, I doubt it would've changed much. Still, it would've been nice to talk about it. None of my friends play games now...

      (just a joke lol) 

  13. Sonic Forces better have some ultra graphics settings for PC. I don't want to rely on mods to improve the graphics again. 

  14. I want to get hyped, but I really can't. It honestly feels like very little was shown. We already all knew it was going to be a boost game with classic Sonic levels and something "new". At least the engine looks nice and is new, but that's nothing to get particularly excited over. All we saw was Sonic run down a corridor, boost through a few enemies and do a homing attack chain. A pretty disappointing and bland reveal. The music is great (as per usual) so that makes me happy at least. I guess I'll be waiting for some better news. Hopefully something that'll give a stronger indication towards the quality of the game.
