  1. I highly doubt Sega had any clue that people would learn to speedrun their game to such an extent they could clear a level in under 30 seconds with a very particular clip through a wall all while avoiding kill planes to take that into account when designing their ranking system. Ranking systems are designed to reward the player a grade for taking full advantage of the game's mechanics and tools that they intended you to use. As cool as it is, you weren't supposed to finish the levels as fast as they do and via the methods they use. I have no idea how you would design around something like that myself, unless you give a much larger amount of time bonus points at the end of the stage but at that point it could come at the expense of the game's other mechanics.
  2. Reminds me of how in the comments of most speedrun videos of the Sonic games that have ranks, there's always that one guy that's like "he beat it in 30 seconds and only got a D? WTF?" It sort of hearkens back to that old adage of the Genesis/Mega Drive games that we tend to think where speed isn't the entire point of the games contrary to popular opinion. Yeah sure you can go fast but where's the fun in just doing that when you can go fast stylishly?
  3. Anyone having a good time with Streets of Rage 4?

  4. I never really though much until now about how little I actually engage with the Sonic community until Super Eyepatch Wolf's reupload of "Bizarre Modern Reality of Sonic." I don't believe I watched the original edit of it.

      Lol well, I was referring more to the fan works of well repute.

      I saw the original version and let me tell you, I hope that the reupload is actually better than the original I swear to Pichu.

  5. So how many people here were very surprised by the Sonic movie? I haven't seen it, but I remember even back before the first design was even shown hopes for it were dour, and given what I've heard it turned out pretty good.

      I'm just curious whether people would praise it as much as they are now had the current design was used from the get-go and thus there were no "OMG, they listened to us and fixed it, now we must watch it!" story attached to it.

  6. I see discussion hasn't changed much since I was last here. They brought back Mighty and Ray for Mania, it just depends on if they think they can make them work and if people will actually care enough that they're worth selling their game on their inclusion.
  7. Figured I would pop in and say I was impressed with how much of a turn around they did with Sonic's design. Even if we old farts won't like the typical anthropomorphic character with a human side-kick story, I'm sure kids will appreciate it. It also might have some nice looking action sequences. I'm not going to see it, but I'm hoping people like it. Also I started on one of the first pages and saw a comment of mine on here from two years ago. Crazy how time flies isn't it?
  8. What have you guys been up to lately?

  9. Any of my buds still here?

  10. What has everyone been doing since I've been away?

  11. Hello everyone. It's been a while.

  12. It's nearly 4 AM and I'm stuck laying awake unable to sleep. I believe it's anxiety related to my job that's keeping me up. I've only had it for a month and a half but I'm already hating it and dreading going in every day. I feel like everyone there just dislikes me and thinks I'm a dumbass screwup, vibes I get based just on the tone people use when I interact with them there. Then again, maybe it's due to me sounding like a stammering moron when I speak so they can't understand me.

    Why can't I ever just be happy? I wish I could just vanish without a trace, at least then people wouldn't be brought down by my pessimism anymore.

      I know I already did this before, so honestly who cares if I do it again, but I've overstayed my welcome in this forum. My poor attitude certainly hasn't earned me anyone's favor around here, and regardless if people say to the contrary, I think my status posts are becoming a nuisance.

      Good luck to everybody here. This time I won't be coming back. I wish those of you that took time to talk to me can find happiness where I couldn't.

      Going to reply anyway just in case you read this. Nothing you have mentioned with this job from my recollection has been positive so you very well may need to look for another one and even intensify your search. At the same time I have to wonder what is your attitude towards your job as it’s usually something visible and people pick up on. It’s something that can even be detected on the Internet so it’s usually even more obvious in real life how you can come across which in turn will either draw people to you or turn them away. 

      As for SSMB I’m at the point where I don’t try to talk people out of leaving here anymore. But I will say that you overstaying your welcome is untrue. When that happens generally speaking you get banned. Regarding your attitude it’s a matter of making some adjustments. Honestly you’ve been told that you could afford to be more positive. With the statuses we all say things we wish we could take back at times. It happens so no need to kick yourself on the matter. 

      If this is it (it doesn’t have to be as you’re free to come back at anytime) then I wish you well. Just remember it calls for action on your part more than anything else. Happiness can be at times difficult to obtain but isn’t out of reach but sometimes changes-especially in attitude-are necessary in order to have it. Take care of yourself.

  13. This video is only about three years old, but it really takes me back to the simpler days of youtube.

  14. My job sucks so much on Fridays and Saturdays, and I'm here for another 3 hours. Ugh.

    1. Maxtiis


      I really wish this place looked as classy as Casinopolis did.

  15. Well that certainly wasn't what I expected. Here's hoping that it's as good as the original.
