  1. Happy birthday! I hope that you're staying safe and healthy during this pandemic. I miss the presence of your unique and beautiful mind.

  2. Just saw the Sonic movie and absolutely loved it. I hope that lots of other directors in Hollywood will treat this movie as the primary role-model for their future projects, so that the decade of 2020ies could have plenty of decent films instead of cringey and pointless filth which fails to impress the true core fans of various franchises. The cliffhanger scenes at the very end were superb and left me wanting more. I'm expecting a sequel to arrive ASAP where Doctor Robotnik finally gains some weight from consuming those strange mushrooms while being marooned on that mushroom planet, and where there will be an epic showdown of the geniuses between him and Tails. Please give me a sequel soon!
  3. Congratulations! I can't believe that it's already been 15 years since I first registered on here before the server wipe. (I came in September 2005). Where have all the years gone and why have they flown away so fast? I've seen so many members coming and going, so many funny moments, so many retired veterans who I miss and because of whose absence I began decreasing my own activity. IMO, the best times on this board were back in 2007 and 2008. Back then I had a different username and I was one of the top 20 most active and most popular members on here. Furthermore, I loved how the layout and the interface of the site looked back then. I loved how there was a proper friend-list attached to every member profile, making it very easy and convenient for people to bond and interact and get to know each other better. Those were the days. I really wish for that old friend-list feature to come back and replace the current "manage followed content" system. It would also be nice if some oldies from before 2009 returned here to give me incentives and motivation for being more active. But we can't force people to do what they don't want to do. *sigh*
  4. Overall I thought that "TROS" was great, but the final 15 minutes at the end were slightly disappointing. (I wanted to see both Ben Solo and Rey surviving and getting married.) But on the other hand, if the ending was too happy and sappy then it wouldn't feel like an authentic story about war. Every true war story has cruel tragedies even if there's an ultimate victory to be celebrated at the end. Lovers aren't guaranteed to be reunited survivors after a battle. Perhaps the only real valid complaint which I can think of is that instead of being called "Rise Of Skywalker" the movie should've been called something like "Deceptive Vengeance" with reference to Palpatine's secret clever plan. I bet that this way there would be a lot less angry viewers because the title would not be misleading them to expect the things that will not happen. On the positive side, it was good to finally discover who Snoke was and who Rey really is. And it was also good to see a flashback scene where Luke was training Leia, because this fixes the plothole from Episode8 where Leia was seen using the Force to glide through the void of space towards the airlock of a Resistance spaceship. Speaking of Episode 8, I never had any problem with Luke's death at all. In fact, I was actually expecting him to die in that movie before I even went to go see it. And I have zero complaints about how he died. I mean, he unlocked a tremendous new Force ability which no previous Jedi Masters before him were ever strong enough to achieve, so of course it would be natural that he over-exerted himself and pushed his body to its limits, especially at that extremely old age.
  5. I don't even know what keeps me returning here every year on June 9th to wish a happy birthday on an account which has been an inactive ghost for a very very long time now, but I keep doing it regardless of the reasons.

    Happy birthday. I hope everything is going good for you and that you're reaching all your goals and that all your dreams are being fulfilled. Would be awesome if you could talk.

  6. Well, I'm still playing my way through this and enjoying it, but there's only 1 tiny glitch that I've discovered... Basically, the glitch is that sometimes when I reach the goal ring at the end of a stage then instead of being returned to the adventure field I get returned to the start of the currently completed stage. But fortunately this minor mishap doesn't prevent the savedata from being recorded, and I'm able to resume my progress by exiting to the main menu and loading the savedata which spawns me back at the adventure field with all of my newly accumulated lives and allows me to make my way into the next unlocked stage. You might argue that it's unpleasant to keep going to the menu to load the savedata, but on the bright side this gives me an opportunity to select a different character if I got bored of using the same one for multiple stages in a row.
  7. You mean to the actual download page? Fine, here it is: https://mega.nz/#!98QE3bCT!byBOVOAmISdpN0KGvglwhhCA7YBcEmJw9K1AMRjmkWQ It's a 3GB compressed file, and you will be required to install a special browser plugin for downloading something of that size. And no, there's no virus or malware there, because I already went through this process and came out clean.
  8. For those who loved Sonic Incursion but crave to play a longer and fully finished Sonic game running on the Unreal Engine there's a game called Sonic Souls by Doky. It features the same gameplay element of collecting the red rings in a rotating 3D environment, but there's somewhere around 30 stages to choose from, and supposedly around 30 characters to play as. (Although I only have around 10 characters available right now, due to just having started playing this 2 nights ago and not having unlocked anyone yet.) And yes, there's also a 2-4 player feature supposedly included. I trust that it is indeed included, because I can see that the designer totally poured their entire heart into getting this game to a finished state, but I just don't have neither the time nor the people for testing this. The only downside is that I couldn't find what the background story for this game is. There was no cutscene and no dialogue to tell me what it possibly could be. I was left guessing that the reason why it's called "Souls" is because it's very easy to earn extra lives as you play. I was literally able to earn 13 lives after playing for only a half-hour and beating the first 3 stages. (Yeah, perhaps my guess is crazy and wrong. But whatever.) Seriously though, I fell in love with this game after only beating 3 stages so far. And here's a screenshot: I hope you enjoy it too! I was impressed.
  9. happy birthday :)

      Thanks! Even though it was already over by the time that you posted this, it was a good one.

  10. I never imagined or predicted that it would eventually come to this, but 2016 is the year when I finally discovered and explored what this whole Vocaloid stuff is all about. (Yes, I'm very very late to the party, I know. But then again, I never considered myself a 100% hardcore otaku, and I'm still not really one now, despite having waifus and having been harassed by infidels for having them.) So anyways, yeah, I discovered Vocaloid songs and MMD videos while browsing YouTube at midnight on my lonely weekends. (Quite a typical and unoriginal way of discovering it, I'm guessing.) And now I'm addicted to these several songs right here: They're now residing in my playlist alongside all of the hardcore dubstep and drum-n-bass, and I can't stop replaying them. it's like a disease. I only get more and more crazy with my age. :/

    I finally watched Episode7 this morning (December 20th), and I consider myself very lucky for being able to enjoy it properly without stumbling upon any spoilers to ruin the suspense of the experience. And now, without giving away any spoilers myself, I'll just say that the film exceeded my expectations in the sense that the plot was actually moving in the general direction that I wanted it to move instead of moving in a direction that would've hurt the feelings of a lot of the diehard fans of the EU. So interpret that statement as you may, and go enjoy the film properly if you haven't done so already. Let me know when it's safe to drop spoilers and we can discuss our opinions in full details. Peace.

    If you follow the plot of Episode 4 attentively enough then you will know that Han was in debt to Jabba the Hutt. Therefore, his seeming hunger for money was primarily in desparation to save his own skin from hired assassins and bounty hunters such as Greedo and from getting himself frozen in carbonite for the punishment of having an unpaid debt. It was Jabba's greed and death threats which caused Han to appear as selfish in front of Princess Leia when they first met. But fortunately, by Episode 6 the true form of Han came into focus, and Leia realized that he was indeed a caring and generous man.

    Most likely the "stories" are about the Emperor having a sinister alter-ego and dabbling in some occult and paranormal activities. Which was the exact reality, as all of us who have watched the 6 films should be aware. From what I understand, only the Jedi Order and a few Senators and the leaders of the Separatist forces have been awake and aware of the so-called Darth Sidious persona, while the rest of the galaxy a.k.a "the non-elite masses" have been completely unaware and clueless to the whole "Dark Side versus Light Side mystical power struggle". I'm convinced that the death of the Galactic Emperor in the Star Wars universe was advertised to the non-elite masses, just like the death (or the supposed death) of Hitler was advertised in our universe. There's a lot of mysteries and theories about the Fuhrer's life and what exactly he was doing behind the scenes, so it's only natural for the profile of a fictional dictator to be inspired by this in some way. I'm convinced that in place of the Emperor there is a group of admirals and warlords squabbling for territory amongst themselves, similarly to the way that it was in the EU.

    If that's the case then it would feel like a major rip-off of the Kyle Katarn storyline from the game Jedi Outcast. I don't even know what concrete opinion to form about such a development because it gives me mixed feelings. The only thing that is certain at this point is that the people who made these trailers have done a great job of getting everyone hyped and excited with too many unanswered questions, practically guaranteeing that almost everyone will buy tickets just to get all the answers even if some of those answers will be disappointing.

    Perhaps by saying "stories" he was actually referring to the ability of the Jedi to use telekinesis and mind-control? It isn't so difficult for me to imagine how such powers and actions would have gradually transformed from real evidence into urban legends due to the Jedi having been purged and the Force having been completely dormant for several decades. Just because someone mentions "stories" while talking about real historical events doesn't necessarily mean that they're being ignorant. On the contrary it might actually mean that they have a curiosity and a thirst for further knowledge which hasn't been proven... For example, we are all aware of the fact that Hitler and the Nazis were real because we have proof of that. But do we have proof of the story that Nazis built a secret outpost on the Moon? Do we have proof of what really happened to Hitler's body when he died? Do we have absolute proof of whether he escaped to Argentina or the USA? Those are all "stories", and people question about them being real. And there's nothing wrong with this. It's human nature. So, from my perspective, the characters in the trailer are just being healthy curious youngsters.
