  1. I can't believe this is actually happening

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      What? M Night making good movies again?

    2. Milo
    3. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      @Space☆YeowI know that. I was wondering if @Rusty Spy was in shock at a potential run of good new M Night films.

    4. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      I'm shocked that not only was M Nights best film in ages was also secretly a apart of the same universe as Unbreakable, but he's actually going the whole 9 yards and doing the full crossover movie.

  2. I've had Sonic X on my mind and now I'm stuck in a state of melancholic nostalgia for a show I don't even like anymore.

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      That's me every day I remember X.

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      it was probably the first time i ever saw significant portions of an anime in japanese before the english version came out back in the day. if not for sonic anime.net, i would've probably eaten 4kids' sonic x up completely like i did pokemon or dbz, etc.

  3. Remember when custom soundtracks were a thing in games?

    1. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      Yeah, don't know why they seemed to have moved away from them too. Even back on the PS3 there weren't really all that many games that you could use CS's on. Don't know if the 360 was any better.

    2. PaddyFancy

      PaddyFancy

      Only the Xbox was great for custom soundtracks particularly on GTA games.

    3. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      Yeah, on Xbox 360 it was as simple as either putting in a USB stick or burning tracks from a CD. I usually use it to play Sonic Youth (Crush 40) during the Time Eater fight.

    4. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      I can't think of many examples of games with custom soundtrack support. Only stuff like racing games e.g. Gran Turismo 5/Project Gotham Racing series, think Burnout Paradise too and the GTA games on the original Xbox.

      One of the earliest examples of custom soundtrack support was Ridge Racer. It wasn't advertised though and was more like an unintended side effect since Ridge Racer stored the entire game on the PS1 memory (it was an arcade port after all) so people swapped discs for songs.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I honestly never understood the interest in it. I can't stand playing games with music that I don't associate with them. It's strange to replace the songs. But having said  that, it's theoretically such a simple feature if the system supports background applications so I don't get any it's not done anymore for those who want it. There likely wasn't enough demand or interest to bother maintaining the feature.

    6. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      Now that I think about it, there is an app for Xbox One that lets you play MP3's while doing whatever. Just turn off the game's music and you're good to go.

    7. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      @Blue Blood For me, it was just for the games where the soundtrack was uninteresting. I know I definitely would've killed for a way to play different songs over a game like say, batman arkham city or tales of berseria since I didn't like the music in either all that much although I can understand what you mean.

    8. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      @Blue Blood It's for games that either have licensed soundtracks, usually sports games, or games that with music that kinda blends into the background. Games like SSX or Wipeout HD were enhanced greatly by not only being able to play my own music, but having integrated playlists that automatically replace the default music.

  4. Why do PC games still have physical copies? Seems exceedingly inefficient to spend 3 days mailing a game case with nothing by an activation code you could've just emailed to me.

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      To stock in shops, basically.  There are still older gamers who prefer to buy in physical shops, and there's potential to attract new customers who are in a game shop for other reasons via physical displays of games.

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Novelty, something to put on the shelve.

  5. For better or for worse, the Spyro reignited trilogy has given me a greater appreciation for the original soundtrack than every before.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      I never knew how much I loved beedy eyes. ;_;

    2. MightyRay

      MightyRay

      I know this maybe a petty nit pick but if Bianca and elora get Skylander girl face I won't be happy, and I'll be double unhappy if they screw up Sheila's design.

  6. Anyone else feel like Ray's sprite is too big? Realistically he should be Tails' size but in game he's taller than Mighty

    1. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      Not really lol. Ray is based more on Sonic than Tails so his size makes sense

    2. Polkadi~☆
    3. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      @The drunkard from space! I guess it's that the side media like the trailer and Adventures blatantly portray Ray as smaller. It's sort of instinct to portray the 'little sibling' archetype as smaller.

  7. Anyone else feel like Ray's sprite is too big? Realistically he should be Tails' size but in game he's taller than Mighty

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      What about his massive chin when he looks up?

    2. CleverSonicUsername

      CleverSonicUsername

      Yep. Also his head and face just seem far larger than they should be in proportion to the rest of his body, and in comparison to everyone else.

    3. Milo

      Milo

      part of this is because his body is significantly smaller than the rest of the cast

    4. SaturnWolf

      SaturnWolf

      Yeah, agreed.

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Ray is too big?

      Well she is played by Daisy Ridely...

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah, his sprites feel significantly off collated to the rest of the cast. Mighty is frustratingly similar to Sonic a lot of the time, but Ray looks very weird and too big in most of his sprites.

  9. Best thing about Encore mode is that it'll finally give me a reason to play as characters other than Sonic.

    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      The base game let you play as Tails and Knuckles. What gives?

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Encore Mode forces you to use other characters, unless you somehow avoid a item boxes and deaths. I guess that Rusty Spy just enjoys playing as Sonic more than the other two.

    3. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Picking and playing a single character in the classics is boring, especially when they're all inferior to Sonic. Having a DKC esque system at least incentivitises curiosity and encourages new approaches, considering you're never tied down to one choice. I can definitely see it helping the replayability of the game out here.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Inferior to Sonic? I don't agree. I've always enjoyed the options that the other characters bring to the table, often times being much more versatile than Sonic himself. Generally Knuckles has been my favourite because of the options opened up by gliding. Mighty and Ray take it to a whole new level. 

    5. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Yeah but they've always been "Sonic but different". Rather than being Sonic's gameplay enhanced in some way, they have a completely different style, which just hampers any way the level was meant to be approached, and turns it into something different. Either by cheesing the platforming by repeatedly tapping a button, or climbing slowly up walls.

      That's a good reason to play as different characters in a sandbox experience, but that's not a good reason to play as them if you're playing a Sonic game, for the Sonic gameplay. If I'm playing the game for the gameplay and level design itself, I definitely want all the platforming challenges and methodology to be intact rather than blown wide open for, imo, rather uninteresting moves otherwise.

      That, and elemental shields aren't counted as power-ups anymore. Another system down the drain. :L

  10. Waiting for Mania Plus is like waiting to play Mania for the first time all over again.

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      oh boy, time to get up at midnight on a school night like i did last year and then have that affect my mood all day as i nearly fall asleep in class and end up way worse off than compared to just playing it in the afternoon

      SUCH FUN!

      Hold your applause until we see them rage quit from the Emerald Hill boss. That I want and don't want to see.

    2. Shiguy

      I still think this is slighty worse

       

    3. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      No, that's just a problem with Knuckles.

      Dying to the first boss in Sonic 1 is like the video game equivalent of this

      well it's game grumps what are you expecting quality gameplay?

      still waiting for them to end their black knight let's play

      @Rusty Spy

      That's why I said slighty.

    6. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      I mean, I had 1 game over there on my first playthrough.

       

      ...though I was, like, 8 years old back then and before that haven't really played a lot of vidya.

    7. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      @Shiguy

      That ain't the players fault though

  13. It's 2018 and I still don't have a portable version of S3&K

    1. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      Aaron Webber acknowledged that in yesterday's stream. The only justification he gave was, "We've been keeping Whitehead too busy with Mania!"

      I know legal issues are probably preventing him from giving the real reason, but that kinda handwaving comes off as a bit smug.

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Well there is the Sonic Classic Collection on DS but I know what you really mean.

    3. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      @Forte-Metallix

      That's the same clever answer he used in the Mania Plus reveal panel.

      3&K isn't happening because of the legal issues with the soundtrack.

      @Rusty Spy

      Download "MD.emu" on android or iOS from the store. Download 3Complete and off you go.

    4. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @Forte-Metallix To be fair, Whitehead is only one person.

      ….Is Whitehead only one person? 

    5. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      @TheOcelot

      I know that's why. I'm just saying he probably should've just said, "We cant talk about it." like he does with every other fan query he can't answer.

    6. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Also, even if 3&K is eventually green-light (with whatever changes need to be made to the music etc), there's no guarantee Taxman and/or Stealth will be available. Back in 2013 after they made the mobile remasters Taxman said he didn't want to always be known as the "ports guy". Well he's made a new game, so I doubt he'll want to do more ports. 

      @Forte-Metallix I guess that's Aaron's way of politely saying they can't discuss it.

  19. REMINDER: The Sonic movie will NEVER happen. If they really wanted it to be made so badly, it would've been out by now. It will go the way half of video game movies go; scattered news about "talks" and "planning", before fizzling out and never being brought up again.

    6. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Honestly my only real complaints so far is the track design and the fact they don't actually tell you which item you're being offered by your teammates. I thought the team mechanic was weird at first but honestly it's grown on me.
