  1. Nope. I'm laughing at the many, many, many people online who were making out the game was going to be terrible, even in design and narrative, because it had marginalised people in it who they don't like to see. A hotly anticipated game that is made by an incredibly talented team with a proven track record can actually be excellent, it's not some banal prediction, just fucking obvious. The true banality is the whiny gamers who do tedious and predictable bitching because a game has certain groups of people in it who they don't like very much. It's more like "progressive" works are generally liked by critics because they can handle being challenged. If you take a film like Star Wars the Last Jedi, for example, all critics agree it's a great film. The film is obviously great narratively, it's just a lot of Star Wars "fans" can't handle being challenged. Similarly, whiny subgroups like "gamers" can't handle anything they don't like or goes against their ideology. And to be fair, I think most people who play game franchises more casually are probably more in line with game critics' opinions and can handle subversive narratives more than some hardcore "fans".
  2. I thought this would happen. People were just mad because it was too progressive. Typical whiny gamers like always.
  3. I really hate the way the game looks, it's too bright and colourful (much like New N Tasty). The atmosphere all around has been butchered. I also don't like the new stuff they are adding, like crafting and the weird as fuck level design.
  4. The forum is lagging horribly. Is this a problem with the site or my connection?

      It might just be where there's an increase in activity at the moment.

  5. I hope the PS5 will be backwards compatible with PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4.

    If so I might actually consider buying it!

      Telling you right now it won't be for PS3.

      That console was a mess from an architecture standpoint... a beautiful mess, but one all the same

    7. Plasme


      That's a great shame! Thank you though @Strickerx5 for addressing my posts properly, rather than acting like a child!

      "Thank you for not responding like a child to my 4th status where I say dumb shit as if it's revelatory information."

    10. Plasme


      Actually it was only the third status. Try again!

    11. Celestia


      They've already said it's backwards compatible with 4.


      Also this being the third dumb status instead of the fourth isn't a very strong defense.

  6. The PS5 conference was also extremely pretentious. I was laughing the whole time at the pomposity.

      Hows so? least it wasn't a cringefest like nintendo's or a bore like microsoft's.

    3. Plasme


      It had that ridiculous blob thing going on the whole time, the expanding buttons and really melodramatic swelling music.

  7. I'm not impressed by the graphics of the PS5 at all. Looks no better than what PCs have been doing for several years.

    1. Strickerx5


      sshhh, let them have their fun

      A higher bar here means better stuff on PC going forward so I'm happy.

      It's almost as if that's how game consoles have worked since the mid 1990s.

    4. Plasme


      True, but they usually haven't been gloating as much as they have with the PS5.

      Do people honestly still expect that a new console gen = massive graphical leap? Face the facts, that kinda stigma is in the past.

      "True, but they usually haven't been gloating as much as they have with the PS5."

      Sorry, have you ever seen ANY console reveal

  8. This PS5 event is pretty dreadful and my expectations were already extremely low.

      >Varied games, many heavily requested titles, all showing gameplay

      what exactly were you wanting this to be to meet your minimum standards?

    2. Plasme


      All the games look like they could run on PS4.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Idk, I think it's been excellent

  9. There's absolutely no way SEGA are making a new console.
  10. My own opinion is that people are focusing far too much on Jackson. Buxer was recently interviewed about it and said that he had very little, or nothing, to do with it when it actually panned out becauae he was busy with other stuff. There clearly are problems with the Sonic 3 OST, as AT Games said so when they were on board to make rhe mini and one of the Sonic 3 composers claimed there was an ongoing lawsuit wheb asked about it by a fan. Stealth has also alluded to it. There are various issues about the lawsuit which people overlook. 1 - It's probably more recent than people think. People point to Sonic 3AK Collection, but ignore Sonic Jam (another port) and Sonic Pocket Adventure (which remade the Knuckles theme). We have no way of knowing exactly why the musuc was changed in the PC release, but it might not have anything to do with a lawsuit. I also thjnk whether the game is emulated or ported/remade is irrelevant, since over the last ten years it just hasnt been re-released at all. it has been ongoing for (at least) almost ten years - since that's when they stopped releasing Sonic 3 in any capacity and when people who either worked, or were working on the game, have alluded to a lawsuit. 2 - It might be any of the game's credited composers who are pressing charges. The reality might be mundane. Maybe they think they should be paid foyalties? Maybe they are suing over something on the original contract? Who knows. It might bot have anything to do with Jackson. Although - in favour of the Jackson argument, this stuff really started to kick off (games not re-releasing, devs referring to it) shortly after his death. So perhaps it is the Estate getting pissy about it.
  11. I can't say how much I love the banner.

  12. I like Sticks' character design, but I also hate her personality and voice acting. Although I get that they probably wanted that - so probably not the fault of the actress.
  13. One of the problems facing this franchise moving forward is that a large amount of fans unironically enjoyed Sonic when it was melodramatic, grimdark, edgy and awful.

    Rather than seeing the new direction in story telling as a positive, they want to go back to the dreadful days of the past.

      I'm sorry that you're so miserable with the series that you can't stand other people enjoying the things about it that you don't.

      One of the problems facing this franchise moving forward is that a large amount of fans think for themselves and enjoy things I thought were awful. Everyone just needs to agree that what they liked about the series and what made them fans of it in the first place is actually really bad.

      They need to not think that the comments about all of it being melodramatic, grimdark, edgy, and awful are overblown and exaggerated. As we all know, during that time Sonic was just so consistent with it's tone. That's why SA2, the Advance games, Heroes, Shadow, Rush and Riders all have the same exact grimdark, melodramatic, edgy tone. All of them had that. So consistently grimdark, that Sonic. The series just loved its consistency.

      This is really broad, generalized viewpoint that I've seen way too many times in this fandom and it's always used to talk down and dismiss anybody wanting a reason to give a shit about this series' output anymore.

      I personally find the current direction to be boring, and I haven't seen any gain in what we've had. That also doesn't mean I want another game to just be '06 or Shadow. The qualities in the Adventure titles, and by extension stuff in a similar vein like Archie and even IDW, are more reminiscent of what I always saw in Sonic ever since I was a kid. I like the adventurous tone, I like when characters and settings matter. Sonic Team has problems sticking the landing in that department, sure, but then maybe that means you hire someone who can pull it off rather than just say "nah, it's bad so fuck it."

      I only speak for myself though, and I've settled on not getting the things I like back, or if Sega tries to appeal to it they don't actually care about doing more than paying lipservice to it.

      Guys you're quoting someone who has an avi of Metal Sonic cybernetically linked to a dark warehouse interface while posing menacingly

      If they are serious they don't realize the level of irony going on here

    6. Wraith


      Has anyone like this ever quoted a joke they liked from the newer games?

      Have they ever been able to talk about the merits of the new stuff at all without just mumbling about how they aren't like the old ones?

      That alone has always said enough about how good the new direction is.

    7. Tarnish


      Your take stinks like echidnas do.

  14. Why is chat disabled on Sonic YT video?

      Because it's a limitation of it being flagged as a kid-aimed channel. On Youtube you're not allowed to interact in any way if you're targeting kids.

      I'd figured they'd do that on purpose. This is Sonic fanboys they're dealing with. No matter what type of fan the content of the video appeals too, it's always gonna be the most negative fans that hog up the chat, at the expense of the silent majority. Don't they get enough salt already from every single tweet they post on their Twitter account? One look at the comments is all it takes to numb anyone's mind on the staff.

      If that was the issue, they would have done it a long time before now. Plus the Twitch chat is absolutely still there.

    7. Zaysho


      @Supah Berry can you please save these hot takes for whatever medium article you are writing.

    8. Plasme


      Thanks - I wasn't trying to get some deep argument going. I just wanted to know why it was disabled.
