      Unrelated, Just out of curiosity, Are you enjoying Crash 4?

    2. booblur98


      i think it might be my new favorite crash game

      it's super good

  2. here's a discord server i made, if any of you guys want to join, feel free


  3. anyone here got any social media sites to reccomend? i need somewhere to be able to talk to people after i leave here come january, after all.

      Discord is good and where a lot of people hang out in their own groups; plus a lot of people are consistently active on there as well

      I usually use Twitter but I only can recommend it if you know anyone on there. I usually use it to follow the stuff I like but I've met quite a lot of people including a few celebrities by chance. And there can be some bad eggs on there so be careful.

      And yeah there is Discord but you have to look for communities and all that. Its not too hard but it can take a while for that.

  4. thinking about leaving the fanbase again.

    every day i've felt more and more distant from the larger sonic community, like an odd one out that's slowly and single-handedly ruining everything for everyone because of what games i like.

    i just don't feel safe in the community anymore. whenever i log onto here, i can't shake the thoughts of "they don't want me here."

    the 30th anniversary and inevitable new game just adds to my dread. when 2021 was confirmed as a "big year" for sonic, my initial thoughts weren't that of excitement, or disappointment, or even intrigue...

    it was "here we go again."

    because i KNOW it'll be controversial again. i KNOW it'll devolve into the pettiest arguements this side of south island again. i'll get harassed no matter what i think, people on other sites will tell me to kill myself and that everyone would be happier if i was dead, i'll get depressed again, and then everyone would just be annoyed at me as a result. i just... can't do it all over again. i just simply can't...

    am i being too pessimistic? maybe. but apparently i'm such an easy target that i always get the worst of it. i don't think taking such a risk would be worth it again.

    2017 broke me. 2021, if it goes how i expect it to go, would probably put me in an incredibly dark and horrible mental state. i just can't take another rough pre-release period like that. and for what? some blue cartoon hedgehog? it's just not worth the stress, the pain of it all.

    so here's what i'm planning to do: i'm gonna stay here for the remainder of 2020, and in january 2021, i'll say my final goodbyes and leave the sonic fanbase for good.

    i'm not really concerned about losing social interaction, because i don't even have friends anymore, so it's not like i'm losing some unbreakable bond. i'm just a lonely dweeb screaming into the void about dumb nonsense.

    i'm sorry it had to be this way, but after 12 years as a sonic fan, i'm starting to reach my burnout point.

    let's enjoy our last moments together, before i board the train into a brighter future.

      Let me say this as someone who more or less moved away from being a Sonic fan. Do what you need to do.

      I've been here for more than a decade and I know it can be a very toxic environment. I've seen arguments happen over the silliest like Sonic's eyes for example. Not every fanbase is perfect yes but Sonic is the one that draws the most clout, both in and out of it.

      Why am I still around? Well I guess the community since I can only interact with a few friends I've met on here. Also being PRESIDENT OF SSMB and all that but I do feel like I can't be here forever myself. I've been here for so long and I've moved on from Sonic. Yeah I do get excited when Sonic happens but I don't consider it be my passion or anything. I've met a lot of people through everything else I've been following and its been great.

      Again I don't blame you for leaving. If you feel like this isn't the place for you just pack your bags and leave. I just hope you find what you're looking for in the big beyond. I'm sure you'll find a new hope to hang onto eventually.

    2. Failinhearts


      Crow couldn't have said it better.

      I have felt a bit distant with the community being overall too negative, I know your feel. It gets hard to talk about Sonic nowadays.

      But it's the people who have stuck by me who keep me around. However, I don't blame you if you pack your bags. Just stay safe.

  5. happy 20th anniversary to my only form of social interaction on the internet (because social media is scary)

  6. happy birthday, SSMB! you don't look a day over 10! i've been on this board for nearly four years, and i have made quite a few aquaintances here that i really like interacting with. you guys post things make me laugh more often than i'd like to admit, and there has been some very interesting conversations and topics around here. happy 20th, SSMB! here's to 20 more.
  7. thoughts on crash 4:

    i started with just the basic game data needed to start the game, so i was blocked off from further play after completing n. sanity peak. but just from those two levels this game is looking to be great. controls and game feel are incredibly tight and smooth.

    i am not disappointed at all.

  8. do you ever feel like nobody would miss you if you were gone?

    1. Wraith


      I never have, and I hope that isn't the way you're feeling either because it probably isn't true. 

    2. dbzfan7
    3. DanJ86


      I've had thoughts like that. I learned the hard way that it wasn't true. It's not true for you, it's not true for me, it's not true for most decent people.

  9. oh cool, i own NiGHTS into dreams now

    whenever i get my old computer tower set up i can give it a shot

  10. this is the cool kids' table. you are only allowed here if you're AWESOME and TOTALLY RADICALTASTIC like me.

    if you are cool, you can sit with me.

    if you are uncool, i will reap your soul

  11. i am now in the condo

    not homeless anymore

    mailbox is more easily accessible than in the old house

    there sure is an elevator

  12. locked down a condo as a place to live. we're going to move in there in a few days.

    it's almost over... i'm almost there...

  13. checked into a much nicer motel tonight.

    this place has got two bedrooms, two TVs, cable service, free wi-fi, a couch with a bed inside of it, a decent little kitchen... it's a pretty nice place for a cheap-ish motel! feels like a mini-apartment in here.

    meanwhile the absolute disaster we had to sleep in last night was just two beds, a small bathroom and a cramped kitchen, and absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke. that place didn't even have any paper towels, or soap.

    the kicker? this far nicer place is only $5 more a night. that thing was highway robbery!

      Great to see it starting to look up for you. Let's hope it stays that way.

    2. Zaysho


      Hope things continue to improve, man.

    3. Failinhearts


      Stay safe, glad you found a place.

      What's it called?

  14. i am now in a motel

    have not locked down a place to live yet

    i'm basically homeless, sharing a teeny-tiny space with three other people, and desperately want to cry but at least i'm not gonna die alone on the street

      Take care man, fingers crossed for you.

    2. VisionaryofSUPER


      Best of wishes. Here's hoping it all turns out all right.

  15. please tell me i'll be okay

    1. booblur98


      i'm sorry for deleting my previous status

      i'm trying to get this to work out, maybe it'll work and i can stay

    2. Demonic Frenzy Ultima

      You're gonna be okay.

      You will be okay.

      I hope hope things work out for you. It's really not fair what you're going through

    5. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      You'll pull through, take care man.

    6. Strickerx5


      Things will always get better. I'm sorry for what you're going through.

  16. i have free time until i go to bed tonight, so if you have any questions, concerns or anything else about the situation i'm in please let me know.

    i'll keep you guys updated for as long as i possibly can

  17. if you write a full sentence entirely in italics, it looks kind of mysterious

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      It looks like a scientific report to me

    2. Teospooker


      It's used for emphasis, like this.

      Usually full italics phrases are done to symbolise the reading of a piece of paper or the internal thoughts of a person. They have their uses.

  18. apparently BRB wanted to do a crash bandicoot project at one point.

    and honestly, this proof of concept demo they made actually looks pretty good. would certainly have been a better use of their talent than a strange sonic reboot.

      I guess the idea crashed and burned.

    2. Mil-O-Lantern


      man, imagine if they were half as willing to be as faithful to sonic with their project apollo/sonic synergy concept as they were with this crash pitch...things probably would had been quite different.

      (i wonder if the team responsible for this is still at the company or they were among those let go when the bottom fell out, given the 2014 date. if the group is still there, maybe activision could approach tem as a possible support studio for a future crash game)

  19. y'know what? i'm probably just gonna bounce from the rayman fandom.

    it's gone from "not fun waiting this long for something to happen" to "i feel guilty for participating because i feel like i'm unintentionally taking attention away from people speaking out"

    like, every time i've posted about wanting a new game, or made a review of one of the games, i've felt incredibly sleazy, like my selfish want for this new game was unintentionally helping the abusers and hindering the people coming out with their experiences.

    i'm pretty sure nobody actually cares about my status as a rayman fan, but i've never flat-out left a community like this.

    if you don't feel comfortable replying to this post, then feel free to ignore it. i was just screaming into the void anyway.

    1. booblur98


      and yes, i'm already very aware of how odd it is to be posting this on a sonic the hedgehog fan forum

  20. downloading rocket league, game was made free-to-play today

    time to see what all the hubbub's been about all these years

  21. hmm... sonic the hedgehog 3, i think. my memory's a bit hazy going that far back. but that's the first game i ever remember finishing.
  22. i've been playing a lot of the puyo puyo games recently (i'm currently at puyo 20th) and i've been surprised at just how good the music in these games is

    like, every game i've played thus far has had a pretty good handful of bangers

    1. booblur98


      like what the heck is this doing in a puzzle game


    2. Tornado


      Sun is the best.

    SEGA's japanese twitter posted this image recently

    don't know the exact context (aside from having something to do with TGS) but i have to say i really like how sonic and jack frost are just chillin up there

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's just some key art for their TGS presence. 




    1. booblur98
