  1. I got the hovercar yesterday when I was wrapping up the GP. Then I went to do an Oxide Trial for giggles and... it wasn't so bad. So I did the rest in one marathon session, then turned my gaze to the platinum relics...
  2. https://www.gameinformer.com/2019/08/16/australian-smash-bros-tournament-bans-hero-from-competitive-play Well that didn't take long, now did it? I wonder if this is going to be an isolated case or if Hero ends up getting banned everywhere. Guess Australians don't like some randomness in their competitive Smash, eh? Oh who am I kidding, no competitive Smash player likes randomness. If they did items would be turned on.
  3. Tune in this Saturday morning for another exciting installment of Sonic the Hedgehog as Sonic, Sally and the rest of the freedom fighters fight to bring down the dastardly Robotnik and tear Robotrumpalis down.

  4. I've been in a classic Sonic mood lately. Fired up my Mega SG yesterday and blasted through 1, 2, & CD. And today I did a chaos emerald run of S3&K.

  5. Would you rather try to squeeze six stories into what would be at most a two hour movie (and that's being generous, in real talk it would probably be only an hour and a half)?
  6. You know, I was thinking. A movie adaption of Sonic Adventure would work artistically since the game already was going for a "Sonic in the real world approach", so a live action version if done right wouldn't look too horrendous. Obviously they would have to focus mostly on Sonic's story in order to fit it into a movie, maybe with the occasional cutaway to what other characters are doing at the time. If it did well they would have material for a sequel in SA2. And more importantly, it would give SEGA a valid excuse to remake SA1, to do it as a movie tie in.
  7. That feeling when you beat someone online in CTR:NR by the skin of your teeth and they rage quit in the lobby afterwards.

  8. @Jango Well Crash N.Sane got a patch on PS4 when it went multi-plat, so I don't see any reason why Spyro won't get a patch as well. Unless of course they made no fixes to the new ports that is.
  9. All this talk of the GP being broken and guess what? I go to check for updates before heading off to bed and there's a new patch out. What it does, I guess we'll have to wait and see. Probably nothing, but here's hoping.
  10. You know, for all the Pingas that goes around, I'm surprised this line never got abused in YTP's. I mean, the magic word is right there, just look at my avatar if you know what I mean.

  11. You know, Crash N.Sane got released on PC when it went multi-plat, and Spyro Reignited is getting a PC release. This game on the other hand is noticeably missing one. It's almost as if Activation avoided releasing this game on the one platform where fan patches and mods could fix all the game's issues and subvert the MTX. But no, that would be silly, right?
  12. Yeah, I waited till I could get to a 50% boost (through Wooden Doll N.Trance) before doing even the weekly challenges. And I'm on Xbox One, btw. Also, I'm not getting the weekend bonus either. This game in a nutshell.
  13. At this point I've done most of the challenges available at the moment (I don't really have any friends online to race with so I've been missing out on those, and I still need to buy the over priced Probulot for another challenge) and am sitting pretty at 36000 nitro. Considering how much time is left, I think I'm at a pretty comfortable point to where I can just coast and I'll still end up way over the mark. Even with the last GP I wound up with 50000+ nitro even though I only started halfway through the month. Point is, if you put a bit of time into it, getting to gold tier isn't that hard (I'm probably gonna be eating my words next month when Activision triples the amount of nitro needed or something stupid like that). I've got all the CNK characters now and have a decent selection of tires and skins to choose from. probably gonna end up taking the Oxide trials on one at a time over time, and in order to go for the platinum skin I need to do adventure mode again because for no reason my 100% save rolled back to 0%.
  14. You know, in hindsight, I'm surprised that Sega didn't monetize the Avatars custom items in Sonic Forces. All they would have had to do is lock all the stuff behind a ring based paywall, and make it expensive enough to make getting items a grind. With them attempting to charge for Super Sonic they were clearly trying to set a precedent.  Then again, maybe that just means that Sega haven't fallen that far as a publisher. Yet. Meanwhile, 2018 was the year Bethesda lost their damn minds. TES VI is gonna be a MTX riddled suckfest, isn't it?

      I remember there were some people defending SEGA charging super sonic as paid DLC back when it was first announced. If it had gone the way SEGA initially wanted to be you know that would of given them a free pass to do whatever the hell they wanted to with this series.

      Would you like to play as the other characters? Would you like to see all of it!?

      For only 14.99, you too can play as Shadow, Avatar, Red Sonic, Green Sonic and maybe Blaze if we remember she exists! 14.99 EACH character btw!

      I'm more surprised it wasn't in TSR. That game seemed set up for the stuff with its mod pods.

      Sega seem to be one of the few publishers left that don't actively try to implement MTXs into everything that they do. The Super Sonic fiasco aside, that's good.

    4. tailsBOOM!


      You had to pay for the Sanic shirts (Which I did just because I prefer to have all the content for any game I own)

      I was pretty loud about the fact that they weren't going to do it for TSR and I had no reason to assume they would do it for Forces back when that was a thing. Especially since Episode Shadow was free. Even the original plan for the Super Sonic DLC started out with it free. That doesn't excuse charging for it later but it's still a light grievance compared to something like Fallout 76. The fact that it didn't take long at all for them to retract it and make it free also deserves a mention.

      I don't go to bat for SEGA or Sonic Team on much but I do stand firm in my belief that they're not interested in that stuff. They've given me no reason believe that they are. 

      If anything, I wish they'd do more DLC. I desperately want more characters and stages for TSR but they're obviously done with the game. Generations was another one people wanted DLC for and was also the perfect game to do it for too but... nope.

      i sure wish activision did what SEGA did when fans protested about the inclusion of an unwanted paid item in their game...
