boy howdy i sure do want that crash bandicoot nendoroid
too bad it costs more than the game it's directly based on
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.
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.
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.
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.
happy 20th anniversary to my only form of social interaction on the internet (because social media is scary)
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.
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.
do you ever feel like nobody would miss you if you were gone?
oh cool, i own NiGHTS into dreams now
whenever i get my old computer tower set up i can give it a shot
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
i am now in the condo
not homeless anymore
mailbox is more easily accessible than in the old house
there sure is an elevator
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...
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!
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
please tell me i'll be okay
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
if you write a full sentence entirely in italics, it looks kind of mysterious
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.
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)
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.
downloading rocket league, game was made free-to-play today
time to see what all the hubbub's been about all these years
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.
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
SEGA's japanese twitter posted this image recently
