  1. Does anybody else have difficulty playing crash bandicoot because of wrong depth perception? I'm playing the n sane trilogy.

    1. Spookilator


      Definitely. I remember one level from Crash 1 being a complete nightmare when it came to depth perception (or rather, the lack thereof). I think it was Toxic Waste?

      That's what I'm playing. I'm stuck on the first jungle levels. Imma ragequit and try again another day.

    3. Spookilator


      Oh wait, I remember! It was the Generator Room.

  2. I'm having a blast with dk tropical freeze. I can't wait to buy super mario odessy nest week.

  3. Guess I better grab sonic 2 for free before it isn't anymore.

      The sega 60th anniversary sale. You haven't heard about it yet?

  4. I had a weird theory about who the hooded character could be in idw sonic 33: spoilers in box:


    He could be the original emerl from sonic battle, or a gizoid that is very closely similar to him. When shadow encounters him, he uses speed, flight and power abilities, and guess who had the ability to copy other fighter's personal moves perfectly? Yup. Either that or a completely new character.

    This is the most I've ever talked about the comics.

  5. The shadow arc in sonic universe was the best version of shadow to me. This idw shadow just doesn't give a crap about anyone and It's..... kinda depressing. Idk, maybe one day the new comics might explore his character.

    1. Kuzu


      I'm kind of hoping this arc actually gives him some personality beyond "I hate everything", because oh man am I bored of him. 

    2. Diogenes


      well the latest issue does have him following a rumor about a "bot trader". only reason i can think of that he'd care about that is if he's looking for parts to fix omega

    3. Wraith


      I assumed the bot trader thing was just him trying to stop Eggman's tools from circulating but that's a valid point. 



      Him falling off the roof was funny.


    4. Kuzu


      If he was just being a tsundere, I'll forgive everything the book has done with him so far. 


      Hood guy not letting him finish boasting was also funny


  6. I have a nintendo switch now. It's gonna be a great weekend.

  7. Do you think there will ever be remastered and colored versions of the gameboy megaman series?

    1. Thigolf


      That sounds like way too much work for Capcom to do

      like WAAAY too much

    2. A wild west steam engine

      Maybe they could hire a team to do it?

    3. Sean


      There almost was on the GBA but it got cancelled. There might be fan hacks that accomplish this, though.

    4. Sean


      Also if you do check out hacks for the GB Mega Man series then please for the love of Bill use this music improvement hack for MMII:


      The soundtrack is so bad that it makes Sonic Chronicles sound pleasant to the ears. For whatever reason they just royally fucked up all the instruments.

      Will keep that in mind...

  8. Have rings appeared in the idw comics yet?

  9. When you're so into pop culture and you start seeing it in nature:


    1. Sapphirine Wind

      Sapphirine Wind

      I was gonna ask him an equestrian.

  10. I remember being curious a couple weeks ago about whether there was a concept of art of fang the sniper anywhere online and lo and behold, there it is. Ssmb comes through once again.

  11. The internet strikes again. I come online and all I see is Mike pence and fly memes.

  12. I didn't know black widow appeared in sonic x:


  13. Suddenly, GUN became a popular topic. I'm always missing something.

    1. Plumbers_Helper


      But your aim is getting better!
      You see it's-it's funny because it's a Gravity Falls reference.

  14. Who remembers mariotehplumber?

    3. Cayenne


      Isn't that the guy who bought a huge amount of Rosalina Amiibos because he hated her?

    4. Cayenne


      Yep, it was him:


  15. Is any of that crash bandicoot 4 coming to switch?


    1. Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      Jovahexeon Explosive Witch

      In a year or so. Cause Activision love money grubbing for double dippers.

      Wow, guess I'll avoid spoilers until then.

  16. Why are fans so mad with nintendo right now? Did it have something to do with the switch?

  17. I honestly didn't know bowser and bowser Jr. had voiced dialogue in super mario sunshine. Why didn't nintendo keep it this way? I actually kinda like it. Bowser sounds a lot like how I first imagined vector the crocodile would've sounded And bowser Jr's is perfect.

    1. JezMM


      Because I'm afraid the vast majority don't agree with you that the voice acting was anywhere near good, lol.  If these were full on remakes rather than emulated ports, I would've actually dug it if they removed the voice acting from Sunshine and replaced it with samples and grunting just to make it consistent with the other two games (and the rest of the series).

      Granted, it probably wasn't helped that the climax of the game felt so rushed and disappointing anyway so there was already a degree of disinterest (and the cut-scene animation was so sub-par and lifeless, none of it felt authentic).

    2. Tracker_TD


      Yeah even as someone who loves Sunshine very much, its voice acting is



      well, just flat-out awful

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Bowser Jr's voice is unbearable in Sunshine, and is probably part of the reason I dislike him so much. Does he sound like a bratty child? Sure. But Christ, you can make a bratty child voice the audience doesn't dread hearing. Bowser's isn't great either. He sounds far too goofy. I mean, it's not awful but it's not particularly good. 

      I'm not totally against Mario games having full voice acting though. Sunshine just did a poor job of it. And then the Galaxy games and Odyssey do the sound clips thing really well.  

    4. JezMM


      ^ Galaxy sometimes felt like there wasn't enough voice for the sentences that were being said, but Odyssey was spot-on.  I love the way they spoke gibberish but included character names in their gibberish sentences - while also not saying said names COMPLETELY clearly so they weren't sticking out terribly (see Star Fox Adventures' dino-talk lol).


      I will say I'll certainly be willing to rethink voice acting in Mario depending on how the theatrical movie turns out. That's bound to have full voiceover, naturally, and probably with a much higher level of quality assurance than a game made by people who don't speak the language the characters are saying would ever have.

      I Have Berry!

      Especally for thoses who didn't care for his voice in the cartoons, people expected Bowser to sound relatively menacing, since all we had to go from were roars and demonic laughing. Scott Burn's potrayal just wasn't that, though I admit it does fit the absurb nature of Bowser spending his family vacation in a hot tub suspended in space. Just not for Bowser in general. Even Nintendo themselves kinda felt the same since they kept using the old growls (Mario Party 4-5, NSMB) or tried deepening his voice (Double Dash, Super Sluggers). 

      Not to sound like a biased Sonic VA fan, but bringing Kenny James in for Galaxy onwards was a big improvment and marked the return of the more serious, intimidating Bowser pre-Gamecube, all while still allowing plenty of goofy moments for him. Even then, Scott Burns' potrayal does have its moments.

      Listening to it again, everyone does have a point. I guess going so long without full voice acting and to finally hear some made me way tolerant to just anything, if that makes sense.

    8. TheOcelot


      Haven't played Sunshine yet, so can't comment on that, but the "gibberish and saying the odd word" in Odyssey sounds fucking awful, lol (although didn't bother me in Galaxy). Should either be all dialogue or none at all IMO.

    9. StaticMania


      You're just talking about Bowser right?

      Because no other NPC does that in Odyssey.

    10. TheOcelot


      Peach says the occasional word (such as "yes") once you've rescued her - when she awards Mario a Moon.

    11. StaticMania


      She always does that.

    12. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      You're right we need Hotel Mario cutscenes again!

      Man to think this has been the only canon Mario game for the past couple of decades.

    13. Sean


      I wouldn't mind more voice-acted Nintendo games but the problem is that Nintendo rarely wants to spend money on good voice acting

    14. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I can only imagine how off putting it must be for one having no idea Sunshine had voice acting and then suddenly hearing Bowser sounding like a Muppet.

    15. Plumbers_Helper


      I was thrilled to have voice acting in Mario Sunshine and disappointed to see them revert back to text boxes after. I never thought the voice acting in Sunshine was amazing, but I never thought it was terrible either.

  18. Trump will be cured in no time. In fact, the virus that infected him will probably become his best friend. 

  19. Man, yatch club or nitrome showed off a new shovel knight game earlier this year and we haven't heard a peep from them since. It really looks fun.

  20. Absolutely nobody

    Not a single soul:

      "How'd you do, fellow Smashers?"

  21. Sonic if he was the size of a golf ball:


    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      How'd that not shred his hand's skin off

  22. I'm gonna buy that gundam over there in Japan and fly it to another planet. I'll keep in touch with everyone through zoom meetings. It's been real Earth. Peace out ✌

    1. I Have Berry!

      I Have Berry!

      I still dream of the day when Mars becomes a colonized and inhabitable planet. 

      ...So we could create a society better than Earth's.

  23. We are looking at the data to analyze it and to see if anymore numbers exist in the data but we have yet to reach an appropriate count. We will let you know when we have results from the data we are reading but we are doing a great job at reading and analyzing the data. We can't say if the numbers look good or bad yet though but we are hopeful that we can continue to read the data and analyze it and continue our excellent job on counting numbers.
