  1. After the disaster that was Sonic Chronicles I feel enough years have passed that Sonic is due for another attempt at an RPG. Although I think a different approach should be taken this time as turn based combat is a little too slow paced for a Sonic game, so perhaps it should be an action RPG instead, with a large interconnected world akin to how Dark Souls handles its areas, just don't make it as difficult. Considering Sonic Adventure was conceptualized as an RPG at first, I think the idea warrants an attempt to see what could have been.
  2. I'm really looking forward to seeing just how speedruns for Sonic Mania will turn out. August 15th can't get here soon enough.

      drop dash, jump, drop dash, jump, drop dash, loop-de-loop, jump.


      I think that about sums it up lol

      I doubt you'd be able to chain drop dashes together and still maintain speed considering your speed resets when you jump after a normal spin dash, so it's unlikely that would be changed for the drop dash.

  3. Y'know I'm inclined to agree with you, it's awesome to see Gens' gameplay return after 6 years since I had a blast with it and the Custom Hero doesn't appear to be too much of a departure from traditional running and jumping that we would expect out of a Sonic game so I'm sure it'll be fine, but I'm afraid we're in the minority here bud. I wouldn't expect to see much optimism in this thread.
  4. Season 4 is allegedly supposed to air in August so if that's true we can watch it alongside playing Sonic Mania. Wouldn't that be great? I wish Adult Swim would start producing content like this instead of whoring themselves out to Fox and Seth McFarlane.
  5. Woo I'm psyched! First official 2-D Metroid game since 2004 and coincidentally announced alongside a new entry in the Prime series... just like with Zero Mission and Prime 2! And while I would have preferred to get an entirely new 2-D game set after Metroid Fusion (come on Nintendo, it's been 14 years lets see what happens to fugitive Samus please) Metroid 2 really needed modern update because that game has aged heavily. Props to DoctorM64 for creating AM2R, it certainly helped fill the void after Other M and Federation Force failed to deliver, but a game in an official capacity is what this franchise really needed; sometimes it felt more like a fan game than an updated Metroid 2 like with that flying Torizo boss, and those aggravating Omega Metroids, but otherwise it was great.
  6. You've probably heard this many times before, but I think Sonic's handled water levels pretty cleverly in comparison to his contemporaries. Where most water levels in platformers require the player to spend the majority of the time underwater, Sonic games allow the player to bypass the water entirely if they're skilled enough to avoid it or find faster routes that cut down on the time spent in the water if you happen to fall into it or are forced to travel in it. Even Labyrinth and Scrap Brain Act 3 had shortcuts, and yeah those are the most difficult levels in Sonic 1. But looking back on it from the perspective of a series veteran I think the shortcuts and alternate routes were handled well.
  7. Yeah getting all S-ranks in Unleashed was incredibly difficult, but I'd say getting all those achievements is even harder. Eggmanland's hotdog mission is the stuff of nightmares. I'm not sure if I'm alone on this but Sonic Advance 3 is also quite difficult. I remember that gave me a lot of trouble especially Chaos Angel. And maybe completing all the expert challenges in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is just...Oh God its so hard. I just want to unlock Ryu damn it!
  8. I'm hoping for great things, but I'm prepared to be disappointed. If this ends up good maybe Freakazoid could also make a return? Superheroes are big business these days, they'd have tons of material to riff on. And those innuendoes better be just as clever as they were before! "Goodnight everybody!"
  9. Just made it to Ornstein and Smough in Dark Souls. I haven't fought them yet, but if there is one aspect of this game that was spoiled for me long in advance, it was that these two are the absolute hardest part of the game. So I'm not so sure I'm looking forward to this.

      They are definitely where the game peaks in terms of difficulty everything afterwards is kinda meh.

      Beware the boob lady.

  10. With the success of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I wouldn't put it past Nintendo to start porting over all the successful games they published on the Wii U to the Switch (because now there's an actual install base), so despite these screenshots most likely being doctored we could still see a Smash 4 Deluxe. Just be on the lookout for any trademarks of "Super Smash Bros. for Switch" being made.
  11. I just started playing Dark Souls for the first time yesterday. fb5.gif

    And this is definitely what it feels like when I find a bonfire.

  12. I'd be fine with a demo but I suppose it would be naive of me to hope no one would post unmarked spoilers of any info they may or may not find in its data. But I'm more anxious for a release date, if I could just have that I'd be pacified. At least the wait for this isn't nearly as bad as the drought of information we had in 2015 after the Sega of America restructure. Nearly a full year of silence almost immediately after Rise of Lyric and Shattered Crystal bombed stung pretty bad.
  13. Not necessarily. Tf2 has some of the most ridiculous customization in gaming and you can't change their proportions, but those outfits are so good I don't really care. I mean just look at this: Sorry best image I've got.
  14. Eh, it's still a callback. And even if it's not real whomever made it did a good job, it had me fooled.
