  1. Concepts/Things In Mania You Dislike

    I dislike that going Super is still any two button presses like in Knuckles and down. It really fucked up an important gliding bit as Knuckles, I had to actively avoid rings to make sure I didn't suicide by going Super.
  2. That laugh at the beginning of the Eggman Boss theme is the best.

    1. A wreaKING heavy engine

      A wreaKING heavy engine

      *Ghee hee hee hee hee hee!*

      *BUZZSAW SOUNDS*

  3. Got all the emerowlds. Ye.

  4. Thanks to The Deleter letting me know.

    Metallic Madness Act 2's BGM is my jam.

  5. Eggman sucks at Puyo Puyo too. You can beat him pretty easy with simple 2 chains, if even. I'm not great at it myself, but think of setting the puyos/beans like steps with a 4th matching puyo being blocked off by one of a different color.
  6. My first death was to Heavy Gunner, that inertia was a pain in the ass. My first, and only, Game Over was in Flying Battery Act 2 when hitting one of those electric control panels at a bad angle and going off the cliff from the rebound. (I played Sonic solo first, so no help from friend)
  7. Sonic Mania is a good time. Can't find special rings to save my life, though.

      Complete the game first then keep playing act 1 of green hill ūüĎć

  8. My god, I was shit at the Studiopolis miniboss. That level design, though. Too damn good. Good job, Taxman, Stealth, and Pagoda West.

    Also Switch version looks and runs great on the tv. Good job, Tantalus.

  9. I don't know who to blame for this decision honestly. Nintendo almost always unlocks big titles at midnight est, not pst.

      Nintendo, 90% of the time, finds a way to fuck me over.

    2. Zaysho

      Isn't that only big first party titles?

  10. If, for some idiotic reason, Mania still isn't on the eshop by 3 am est, buy a code off Amazon. 

    1. LunarEdge

      LunarEdge

      when u go to redeem that code on the eshop will they let you download it?

    2. Conando

      Conando

      Yes. Those who got the ce early downloaded the game days ago.

  11.  I guess I'll try and finish up Hey Pikmin since Reggie is being an asshole.

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      that was his plan all along

  12. Not sure what's pissing me off more right now. The white supremacists or the "centrists" that keep bringing up anti-fa when someone so much as breathes. Anti-fa is not the fucking issue right now.

  13. Oh ffs, some of the fuckers involved with the shit going down in Charlottesville got a permit to protest in the Boston Common next weekend. Get the FUCK out of my town. Walsh better revoke that goddamn permit after what happened yesterday.

  14. Never thought America would be heading back toward the times before, and during, the Civil Rights Movement. Dissapointed as hell in my country right now.

      That's what happens when you have half a nation's worth of self-deluding white guys convinced that they live in a land of equality and freedom despite the rampant bias and privilege in their favor while enabling them to be smug and condescending about said equality and freedom to the minorities, only for the world to basically start ripping away those delusions. Now those same people want to force the world back to the Stone Age purely because their fragile egos can't take the idea that they aren't as great as they think they are.

      It seriously bothers me that there are that many people who throw a fit about having the world view changed then actually adapting to it. My uncle is one such person. Which is incredibly strange because my family is generally pretty hard left.

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      Well the way I see it, it's partially because America (at least compared to a lot of other countries) basically hasn't gone through any supremely humiliating world-shattering moments in it's history ever since the Civil War. It's more or less spent the last century basically boasting about it's incredible equality and freedom and liberty and power and whatnot compared to the rest of the world (Germany got the Nazis, Europe had the bits with WW2, etc.). So now that it seems to be America's turn to get a new asshole ripped in it, we're not taking it so well because we're effectively a spoiled pampered brat by comparison.

      To them, and I'm just guessing, they see the world(or at least America) as already equal opportunity, or not nearly as bad as people make out, and so any change comes off as pandering, or giving someone else a "edge" above them, which to then comes off as counter intuitive to equality. The concepts of privilege and institutuinal discrimination  are seen as boogeyman terms because, well, they don't see it, because they aren't a minority, and so they see a perfectly functioning society that ,while not perfect, and with its issues, is not problematic because of people being different, but simply concepts that can be the fault of the individual(laziness, greed, education, etc.)

      @KHCast It also doesn't help that many of them take it as a personal offense towards their own character rather than an observation about the flaws of our society, thus making them supremely defensive and unwilling to change it. Granted in many cases the fact that they act that way does suggest that there are genuine problems with their character that they just simply don't want to face.

      I find it hard to believe they never experienced any strife in their lives. I don't know, I didn't survive the fucking Bush years without ending up homeless despite all the efforts Obama was making to stabilize things. I guess they can't accept that these things happen for no good reason, and sometimes malicious reasons (ageism, sexism, racism, homophobia, etc.).

It's hard NOT to sympathize with others when you go through it, the only stable points of my life were the late 90's to early 2000s. I went to public school, and met all sorts of kids from other walks of life with the same problems.

      I mean like discrimination. I doubt conservative white straight guys have a hard time getting work for being white or straight, or need to worry about getting raped at night, or legally get profiled because of their skin tone. This is before we get into the legislative discrimination against women, blacks, LGBT, etc. So in those regards, it's harder for them to relate and see it like someone like me.

    8. Conando

      I understand what you're getting at. It bothers me that it just isn't something someone develops over time by coming in contact with others. Like seriously, you can witness discrimination in every day life, it doesn't have to be done to you to know it's wrong. That's why this whole "well let's just try talking to them" thing doesn't seem like an answer to me, there has to be something not right to be so lacking in understanding.

      @SenEDDtor Missile Being called racist isn't always an insult either. I admit I can be sexist at times for example. But I'm open to getting called out so I can be improved and more respectful.

      @Conando It's even more fucked when things like gay conservatives, or black guys like Ben Carson exist and defend those ways of thinking only vindicating the privileged 

  15. Disappointed with SEGA's decision about you know what, but I'm not letting that ruin Mania for me.
