  1. Damn it you beat me to it, although I was probably going to post every character's title logo. Speaking of which, we really should do another character poll sometime just for the sake of seeing how opinions have changed over the years. I imagine Eggman will probably be higher than number 7(?) this time around.
  2. You mean this right? I wouldn't say it sounds depressing, it's just a crescendo into one final note. It's probably the lingering on that last note combined with the Genesis' sound card that makes it sound haunting, if that's a way to describe it. Nowadays I mostly hear it used in parodies of Sonic if I'm not replaying the first two games.
  3. I guess I can finally say the phrase, "another day, another dollar".

    Yesterday really gave my legs a workout though.

    1. JezMM


      You really shouldn't be kicking people to steal their dollars

    2. Maxtiis


      It's honest work. Some people need an ass kicking.

  4. Did anyone try out that Re2 REmake demo?

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Nope. Mostly because I wanna go in blind.

    2. Maxtiis


      I think it's different if you're the one playing it. I would have if I had any way to.

  5. Completed my first day of work as a porter, fell asleep for 2 hours the instant I came home.

    1. Kiah


      That exhausting, huh? Hopefully you’ll get used to it quickly and it won’t take such a toll on you physically. Hope the job goes well for you too. 

    2. Maxtiis


      I'm working with my best friend, so despite just about everyone else there being an asshole, things might go ok for a time. I'm working at a casino so there's TONS of walking.

    3. Kiah


      Okay not bad having your best friend amid a ton of jerks as workmates. Like it balances out. And nothing wrong with a ton of walking. Free exercise and all that lol.

    4. Maxtiis


      Yeah I suppose. I've been needing the exercise.

  6. That moment when every status update is about Unleashed.

    On another note, Sega should force the movie to be like this, even if it's ripping off Into the Spider-verse:


  7. Well I've managed to win the most notorious fights in World of Light that I'm aware of.

      Somehow, your profile picture matches this status update.

    2. Maxtiis


      I can safely say they still read your inputs like the cheating pieces of shit they are though.

    3. blueblur98


      let me guess, dr. wily and rayman?

    4. Maxtiis


      Yeah but those two in particular didn't really give me as much shit given I knew ahead of time how bullshit they were.

      No, the stuff I find really bullshit is stuff like the Marth and Lucina fight in the world of darkness, where you're basically fighting two tourney level humans at once and they just combo you into a spike without any way to handle both at once.

  8. I'm impressed with this run of Sonic 1 for gdq, though I can't help but wish I had the talent to speedrun a game myself.


    1. Harkofthewaa


      I've been watching the Sonic Mania race, and it's interesting to see just how broken the game is even after patches.


  9. Honestly this is the only place I've seen people expressing such a strong negative emotion towards Sonic. Most other places such as youtube have a general variation of those that remain optimistic and those that are hopeless towards it (but continue to follow it regardless). It was pretty bad leading up to Forces around here though. Tbh, I was a bit apprehensive about even discussing it just because I was anxious about how much of a backlash I could get just for saying what I thought. I'm still holding onto the hope that this franchise can further improve though. Mania was such a big leap forward in overall quality for me, and it started development after Forces, which leads me think that they just wanted to release what they had already spent 4 years at least on, so the possibility exists that their direction has changed in the time since.

    A bit too immersive.

    1. Strickerx5


      I laughed but wow, that looked like it hurt DX

    2. Maxtiis


      Pure reflex in action.

  11. image.thumb.png.edb4c1aec04a66d870afc8a7e3d42656.png

    Well this certainly took me back, except girls weren't happy when I texted them. They were annoyed.

  12. I just read that The Spin article on the Freedom Fighters, and until now it never occurred to me that I'd be a bit sad to see them go. Of course I'd much rather follow and see the main continuity characters experience their own stories, but after growing up reading the stories Sally and the others appeared in over the past 25 years, it really struck a chord with me.

  13. Man, losing to Smash Bros. A.I. is always that one thing that ruins my self-esteem so much. If I can't beat some stupid computers, how could I ever beat actual players?

    1. Maxtiis


      I know I've virtually said this already, but sheesh, it's so aggravating. And I'm too stubborn to give up.

    2. Blacklightning


      For what it's worth, the high level AI is based off actual tourney level players. There's absolutely no shame in losing to them.

    3. Celestia


      Well, that and the AI "cheats" to some extent, especially at higher levels.

    4. TCB


      I know I'm not good irl level play so I don't even attempt lvl 9 cpu matches I suck

    5. Maxtiis


      @TCB I'm not sure if I'm actually fighting what the game would consider lvl 9 cpus given that I'm running through world of light on Hard, which is vague at describing how difficult it really is. Sometimes the a.i. will be braindead, sometimes it will prove to be a completely fair challenge, and other times it's like it has permanent i-frames and no matter what you do, it'll proceed to fly right through your attacks and combo you into a spike.

    6. TCB


      Oh you talking about some of those 3-4 star spirit battles yeah those can suck all the confidence you thought you had playing up til that point

  14. DwcK7krVAAEvucQ.jpg:large

    Imagine seeing this while driving.

  15. Man, no other game series gets my blood boiling quite like Smash Bros. And its not losing to other players that's the problem, it's the damn a.i.

    1. Maxtiis


      This level is Hell. 

    2. Diogenes


      it's a tough one, but if you can take out the assist trophy quick enough it ain't bad. no shame in waiting and coming back with stronger spirits, either.

    3. Maxtiis


      I read the one that starts you as metal is best suited for it. I'm not the only one this particlar level has given trouble it seemed.

  16. I know Metal Gear gets all the love from most people, but Thief: the Dark Project and its sequels really are spectacular. Easily my favorite stealth games.

    I was actually wanting to post a topic on this forum about Thief, but decided not enough people would be interested in it to make the write up worth it.

    1. Teoskaven


      This is also one of the reasons why Thief 2014 is very disliked, it had huge shoes to fill and did almost nothing to do so. A sad tale for this franchise.

    2. Maxtiis


      I recall the developers were almost actively trying to distance themselves away from the conventions that made Thief what it was.

      At least the fan community for the series is still faithful, and even outputting their own maps that rival and occasionally exceed those that Looking Glass made. If you're interested, look up Klatremus on youtube, he has tons of videos on good fan campaigns even if he tries to play them in a way they weren't designed for.

    3. DanJ86


      Y'know, if making a topic about it is something you wanted to do, then that alone should be enough to make it worth it.

      As for me, I never played the originals but did play the 2014 entry. I guess it was okay, but very weird and creepy. I just couldn't say how it compares to the originals with having no knowledge of them.

    4. Maxtiis


      Well I wasn't confident in what I had wrote, it mostly just seemed like a wikipedia article trying to inform people who hadn't heard of it what it was about, and that just didn't seem engaging.

      Thief 1 definitely has it's creepier moments involving sneaking around undead infested areas. Like the sounds of one of the most dangerous enemies the Hammer Haunts:


  17. World of Light is so unfair it's not even funny.

    1. Maxtiis


      Nevermind. I just suck, much like at everything I try.

    2. StriCNYN3


      Cpu's in general were stepped up significantly compared to the last Smash games, so much so that people swear they're playing real ass people haha (There was an update that even tweaked the difficulty because they were so damn hard). I've seen a video of one of the best melee players getting rested by a cpu Jiggs like 3-4 times in a row with it's laser like precision within mere seconds playing Wol.

      So don't worry about it man, because it's most likely aint just you. The difficulty has become pretty jank in some areas.

  18. Morning! Wake up to a meme.

    2. Kiah


      I don’t get it...not that that’s anything new lol.

      Anyway good morning!

    3. Maxtiis


      It's a reference to this:


    4. Kiah


      @Maxtiis oh my...

  19. Well he didn't make it very far.


  20. I've suddenly just started feeling depressed, lonely, and like nobody cares about me. I don't really feel like talking about it, but just bringing it up eases the tension I'm feeling. I think.

    Idk, honestly when I do get in these moods, it just feels like I'm begging for undeserved praise or consolation and makes my self-loathing all the more validated.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I get that sometimes. Dunno why it happens. It just does.

    2. Kiah


      First off sorry you’re feeling that way. These feelings of depression, loneliness and worthlessness are the absolute worst. Keep in mind that it isn’t true that no one cares about you simply with SSMB alone. 

      And it’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it but if you ever change your mind feel free to talk about it wherever. My door is always open as well. Also agreed on simply mentioning it as it is a release of some sort as well as an opportunity to get some kind of comfort and support which is absolutely needed in times like this.

      That said, you aren’t begging for attention at all. It’s bad enough to be in these situations in the first place let alone go through them all alone. We all desire to be praised and have consolation when we are down and there’s absolutely nothing wrong seeking it. 

      Hang in there and I hope you feel better soon. 

    3. Failinhearts


      I understand that feeling. A lot.

      If you ever change your mind and wanna talk about it, hit me up. 

  21. Yeah I hear that people seem to like Tangle and Whisper a good deal, and they're both well designed so I'd imagine the rest of the artwork follows suit. Thanks for the write out though; if I find a copy somewhere I suppose I'll start my collection anew. At least with Archie finished I can conceivably collect all the issues from it someday
  22. Maybe it was like with Tails's shoes and the red was just to make them more akin to Sonic's. I've never come across any design documents that mention anything other than him having a Jamaican color scheme, probably to represent his origin from an exotic island, so your guess is as good as mine.
  23. This render from the Sonic Channel shows Knuckles's shoes with wear similar to Sonic's, which looked like chipped metal, so I'm going to assume that he's not wearing sandals. And just for the sake of moving on from this discussion and staying on topic, can anyone actually recommend IDW's take on Sonic? After being unable to find any issues physically in my area I decided not to bother, but I'm still curious as to its quality.
  24. Street Fighter 3: Third Strike's credits theme sounds really melancholy to me.

    Maybe it's just the choice of instruments used, or that I'm looking at it in the context of it being the theme representing the current end of Street Fighter's lore.

  25. Okay. I'd rather not see it changed to something more realistic due to this series' already unfortunate and bizarre association with weird fetishes, but if you guys would rather have the characters even more anthropomorphic, then that's your perogative. I didn't even know those characters were supposed to be wearing sandals for years. Does that mean Knuckles is too?
