  1. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    And the writers for House of Cards continue to lose sleep over the herculean task of trying to write a show that's more fantastical than this.
  2. Concepts/Things In Mania You Dislike

    Hydrocity Act 1's bubbles are seriously a poor fit for what was supposed to be the fast water level of the Sonic series, and that's without the annoyingly tight maneuvers you have to make to dodge spikes. Flying Battery Act 2 has WAY to many things going on that it feels bloated. You have the junk piles, the magnetic ceilings, the fans, the cylindrical tumblers, the electric coils from Wacky Workbench, strong winds, pole swinging, and probably more that I forgot. There's so many different gimmicks it feels like they crammed in ideas for 2 or 3 entire Zones in this one Act and it ends up becoming a clusterfuck. The minibosses feel too complicated and take too long to beat. This is mostly personal preference, but minibosses work best when they are short and simple, and easy, otherwise it kinda undermines the spectacle of the Act 2 boss. Also, the inconsistency with the Hard Boiled Heavy fights. Heavy Gunner is only a miniboss in Studiopolis, but the others are major Bosses, but Heavy Magician is part of both the miniboss AND the major boss, but not any of the others. Also, each one is the boss of one of the new stages... except for Heavy Rider, who's the boss of Lava Reef. It would've been much better to have 5 new zones for the five Heavies. Considering how prominently they are advertised, they leave very little impact (granted I have gotten all the Emeralds and I know there's a Super Sonic final boss), but regardless, they should've had a bigger presence overall. Blue Sphere for bonus stages is a bit much, especially since there are more than TWICE the number that S3&K had. I liked the short intermissions the bonus and special stages gave in Sonic 3, but with how big the levels in Mania are, and how long the bonus stages are, and how many checkpoints there are, it's overwhelming. Story is half baked. I was genuinely surprised to see Little Planet in the normal ending, cause there was literally no transition to it. You kinda see SOMETHING in the background at the end of Lava Reef Act 2, but whoops, no level transitions to tell the story. Not exactly something I DISLIKE, but why was 80% of Hydrocity Act 2, completely rehashed? I mean, Hydrocity is one of my favorites, but it felt really odd that the first half of the game did a great job at remixing the old levels, only for the second half to feel more like fan-edits to the original levels rather than completely new designs.
  3. Been meaning to ask. Who's the character and series in your avatar?

    'He who fights monsters' my friend.
  7. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    While I see where your coming from, the thing that I feel needs to be said above all else, is that those opposing racists and bigots must avoid and condemn violence and abusive actions. Antifa and other anti-white-supremacists have to remain peaceful and non-provocative in situations like Charlottesville. Even if it doesn't make the right anymore peaceful, one thing will happen; eventually, everyone will see them as the assholes.
  8. Managed to get a Switch and Mania today (no chili dogs though) and played through Green Hill so far.

      If you didn't get chili dogs then did you really get Mania today?

  9. Who's to say Mania can't just be called Sonic 4 Episode 3?

      I feel like even referring to Sonic 4 by name is more dignity than it deserves tbh

      I haven't played, but Hydrocity doesn't look as fun as the original. Act 1 looks too Labyrinth-like and the act 2 boss seems kind of cheap.

      Actually, a lot of the bosses look really cheap in this game.
