    The original edges it out for me in terms of quality despite its age, so I'd still argue it's worth playing even with the remake's existence. Same applies to Resident Evil 2; the remakes are just such different experiences to the originals I don't think they replace them.

    Maxtiis got a reaction from Supah Berry in How do you even update a design like the Sonic cast without it feeling unnecessary.   
    You shouldn't have to overhaul these designs given how strong they are for the core characters. Best just to let artists interpret them slightly differently like with details specific to them rather than just do it all wholesale.
    I still love the old Dreamcast models, and while I know it won't happen it'd be nice if would make using Sonic's an alt costume or something someday. It's funny how people have started to grow an appreciation for early 3D game models lately. I'd like to think it's more than just nostalgia and rather a genuine interest in trying to have a unique but strong aesthetic.

    Not the same thing but the Fleischer animations are still top tier Superman media. I'm not even much of a fan of Superman and still like them.

    Damn, I didn't even see what happened until just now. Real shame to see the site go. And from the sound of things it wasn't your fault Donnie. You've always been a competent writer and reporter.

    If you play it on what the game calls easy mode it takes away some of the more bullshit obstacles and enemies.

    I'll always have a soft spot for those old weird game commercials that are nothing like the game itself.

    Can't say I ever felt that I had to relate to the Sonic cast but to each their own. I always saw Sonic as a personification of freedom so him behaving in an idealized fashion was appropriate to that. That said, it was still enjoyable the times you'd see the mask slip and Sonic would screw up or make an ass of himself.
    Tbh I never saw much of a difference between Tails in Sonic Boom and his normal iteration. Perhaps it was just way more subtle compared to the others. 
    I'm probably one of the only people that thought Amy's infatuation was amusing. Although nowadays I prefer that she'd use her crush as a means of keeping Sonic in check through threat of breaking out the fangirl than her just outright expressing it constantly.
    Knuckles being the big dumb muscle head has been talked about to death so I don't have anything new to say on that either. I just prefer him being stubborn and aloof rather than outright idiotic.

    I think it annoys everyone. I call it the Doug Walker Effect for obvious reasons. Youtube content is infinitely more enjoyable when you don't try to force anything, yet too many people fall into that trapping.
    Although lately I've just been getting annoyed by all the in-video sponsor shoutouts. I guess it's to deal with adblock and I just skip it at least.

    SRB2K has a really cool aesthetic to it as well. Really sets it apart from the crowd, aside from people using custom characters which naturally breaks that aesthetic. Being able to use retro 3D models was pretty cool to see.

    Nintendo should do more Mario games that are akin to the style of that Super Mario Adventures comic. Mario characters already have established personalities, there's no reason not to utilize them.
    Mario himself isn't a blank slate like Link, even though for some reason he's still a piece of wood.

    Nah I'd rather keep Fire Emblem. It faltered sales wise for 23 years even in Japan and earned the popularity it has now. As much as I love the first two, a proper followup to Paper Mario: TTYD is a ship long since sailed.
    Besides the West didn't even get the petting mini game.

    I've got a friend from high school who would make all sorts of DOOM levels and such mods on his own computer using all sorts of things he downloaded. He's really talented with it. I just wish he'd pursue something of that nature. He hasn't had the best of luck in life

    You would think that of all games on the GBA, Pokemon would have been one of the best to utilize the sound hardware considering the franchise is co-owned by Nintendo and all, and thus would have the best resources available for it.
    At least the compositions themselves are still good.

    I’m sorry you’ve had to deal with that period let alone in such a short period of time. Sounds like me back in 2016 when I lost 6 loved ones among friends and family after the year was over. Emotionally painful is a severe understatement. Sadly health issues are continuing to plague us for the time being. 
    Glad medication is helping you out mentally and I hope things will get better soon for you. 
    @Maxtiis I’m sorry for your loss. These anniversaries are never easy to deal with but I hope you’ll manage through the day okay.

    It's been rough for me as well. Today marks the 1 year since my grandmother died after my family and I had been taking care of her for more than a year by that point.
    Hopefully things will continue to improve for you, and believe me, I know how it feels to have to take meds for keeping yourself together mentally.

    While I agree that a written comment speaks more volumes but when it comes to social media, forums and the like likes/reactions tend to pack a more powerful punch to express your agreement and appreciation. I actually usually do both I guess to emphasize my appreciation knowing that people like receiving both in return.
    I wish it wasn’t the case either but it’s good to know what the root of the problem was and you know how to rectify it. I’ve interacted with you enough to see this wasn’t normal with you.
