  1. Ça alors. C’est super! T’es très doué! Wait. That’s rude of me. I said. ‘Oh my. That looks amazing! You’re really talented!’ Sorry about that.
  2. Something a little more relevant this time. :\
  3. My first sprite art of one of my Original Characters. The style is meant to be more like EarthBound's simplistic 16-bit style. I wouldn't mind doing more of these if people like them. *Shrugs*
  4. I know I feel I shouldn't upload art that isn't Sonic-related. 
    But this is my first sprite piece that I've ever done and I feel really happy about it. 
    She's an OC of mine.

      Nonsense! Uploading non-Sonic art is not a problem what so ever. A lot of members here have set up art topics in the Showcase area, so you can make one for your art if you'd like!

    2. Artsy-Aspie


      Thank you. <:)
      Do you think I should put this is the Showcase myself? 

    3. Kiah


      This may be a Sonic the Hedgehog forum (is it? lol) but it isn’t restricted to all things Sonic. As along as it’s within the rules you can talk about and post artwork of whatever you like. 

      And I second you making an art topic in Showcase as while posting in the statuses gives you immediate exposure, it’s temporary as it’s usually gone and forgotten shortly after it’s off the main page. 

    4. DanJ86


      Yeah, I echo what the others have said.

      I have my own art topic in the Showcase section and while I do draw Sonic sometimes, I love to draw many other characters from many other franchises too. XD

  5. Porky will forever be the most diabolical villain I have seen in a video game ever. He goes from an annoying pain next door to a psychotic ruler who wants to destroy everything. Not to mention in his eyes, he wins in the end.
  6. I personally think the former. It felt so rewarding beating the whole game. There was literally nothing engaging about Forced and it’s automated gameplay.
  7. Oh it’s no problem. I don’t want to risk getting in trouble. It is a controversial topic anyway. The last thing I want is people getting angry anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Oh I’m sorry. I can delete this if you want. I’m still pretty unfamiliar with all this. Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkBest be on the safe side. I’ll delete it.
  9. I'll discuss my full thoughts if anyone is interested in hearing why. But all I will say is I would much rather be challenged (even unfairly), than bored to tears thanks to repetitive "gameplay". Say what you want about Sonic '06 being a glitchy mess, I had 10 times more enjoyment out of it than Sonic Forced. There. I stated my opinion. I think I might have burned a bridge.
  10. Aw you stole my joke. Well I technically stole the joke too. Never mind then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. By the end of this month, you guys won't be hearing from me anymore.
    I've given up all hope on my future.

      If you know that suffer from depression and bipolar disorder. Don't be afraid to speak out.

      Ask for professional help. Never say that you've giving up on your future.

      Listen to me. You should never lose your hope like this.

      Life and the situations you're in can be a major nerve wrack, but these will eventully pass through. You mustn't let all these negative thoughts control you.

      The best you can do for your future is to be patient and hang in there. You can also talk to your family, a doctor, or even this website if you wish to express your concern.

      Look I'm going to spare the 'don't give up and don't lose hope speel' cause you've probably heard that shit a million times already and if your mind is all over the shop it probably ain't gonna make a much difference especially coming from a rando on the internet.

      Go walk, take a deep breath and just look at a tree for while or a rock. I know it sounds dumb as shit but if you take a good look you can sometimes distract yourself looking at the small details. The colours of the bark, the texture of the rock stuff like that.

      Just zone out for little bit and find a quiet spot. It won't cure anything but it can be a good tool to help you calm your self and it gets the stimming going.

      If you can't go anywhere find a toy or something else to focus on for a bit. AMSR is a godsend for me as it soothes the nerves and tells the dark thoughts to fuck off for while.

      Once you're relaxed. Write down if you can some small things you can do to make yourself be a bit better, i.e. say something nice to some one once a week, eat some veg stuff like that. Focus on the mundane and easy to organise.  Shit takes time, I've been going through loads of thoughts as of late and sometimes the best thing for me to do is just be nice. Think positive ain't gonna work if you already don't give a shit about yourself but doing something nice once in a blue moon for someone and slowly building it up tends to do a fuck tonne more I find.

      All things take time and your brain will have days where it'll say fuck it and you'll wanna jump into the abyss and not give a fuck. The best thing to do is just take it slow and steady and try not to lose it.

      I'm sorry if this shit comes of as preachy or not very helpful but I thought I'd try something different since you've got Aspergers and I've got it too along with Depression and Anxiety.

      Take it easy and if you go I hope it's not forever and it's just a break.

      But you can't give up. Giving up only hurts your friends and loved ones. I might barely know you, but I don't want to see you talking like this.

      They are people out there that can help but you've got to reach out to them so they at least know that you're in need. We can give you support and encouragement here, but we lack the experience of a professional and you might prefer to speak with them on a more personal level while face-to-face.

      If you like being here and enjoy it, then why would you leave? It would only guarantee more suffering and that's not fair to you. Why put yourself through that?

      You suspect that you have mental health problems so it'd be helpful to have it confirmed and tackled in the best way possible. You don't have to live with unhappiness. Let people help you...

      I remember how easy it can be to get caught up in a particularly bad moment or feeling. It can feel like it never stops either. During moments like that, it's important to contact someone you trust to help you through that experience. That can be a friend, ap family member, a spiritual or other authority figure you know, or anyone else you know makes you comfortable. Ansent that, there are professionals you can contact who are trained to help you through those feelings at such times. Achieving stability is not easy and takes time and effort. You need to be willing to accept making personal changes and actively seek help. In my case, a prescribed medication also helps.

      "Don't lose hope, now!"

      I understand that things look bleak. Maybe I'm not the best one to say this because I act this way myself, but this is no time to give up!

      If you feel like there's no path for you, seek help. Find that path, or make it yourself. You need to find a way to put an end to this depression that's taking control of you and blinding you to what's really there.

      Therapy, prayer or simply just another friend or family member, there are many ways to move forward. So take 'em.

      Thought I'd at least try and find out what's up before replying. Seeing what it is... I understand that feeling. The frustration of having others tell you that the thing you love to do is pointless.

      I've had to deal with that kind of treatment too. That anything I do is meaningless since I don't have a job, thus I'm not doing anything "important". It sucks, and can make you feel like nothing you do matters anymore.

      What's important now is that you don't let it get you down. If you need to speak to a professional, then please do so.

    8. Kiah


      I echo the thoughts of everyone saying to seek professional help. Please. There’s nothing wrong with doing so and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. In the meantime I’m going to try to help you out like the others here as support and encouragement is all we can really do for you as we aren’t professionals here.

      I see looking at your profile that you are a brand new 20 year old. You are still young! You have much ahead of you to be giving up. You have so much to experience, learn, discover, enjoy and growing to do even amid the concerns and uncertainties out there so it is way too early to throw in the towel. 

      I’m not trying to undermine what you are feeling and going through but there is always a way out. While you do need to take action you by no means have to go through this alone. Maybe stick around here and interact with the community more. That and helping and showing care and concern for my fellow members and getting it back in return has actually helped me a great deal among other things amid my depression and anxiety.

      I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times but hang in there and don’t give up. You have a lot to live for and your endurance is bound to pay off as I’ve seen it not only with myself but others on this very forum and I’m sure you can and will do the same if you keep fighting.

      Hey, bro, I know this is a bit late, and I don't know you, but I would want to. Whatever you're going through, myself and many others on this forum are here for you. We're a community, we help each other out when we can. While I think a professional is the way to to go like many others have said, but in the meantime we are always here for you. And always remember the future is not ours to see. Trends can change at a moments notice, and a downward spiral can easily turn into a ferocious upswing. Keep the faith, and talk to any of us if you need to.

  12. This review is taken straight out of my Tumblr review post:


    "Okay, here goes. Grave of the Fireflies, directed by Isao Takahata and based on a semi auto-biography of the same name. Honestly, I’m going to have a hard time with this one. Let’s just get to it. 

    The film opens with the main character Seita dying of starvation and his spirit later meeting that of his younger sister Setsuko. *Deep breaths* Yeah, no point saying spoilers, the beginning of the film practically tells you that both main characters die. That’s already a positive start. 

    It then goes to a flashback, to the city of Kobe, Japan in early 1945. The siblings and their mother prepare to evacuate as the incoming US bombers bomb the city. They are caught off guard but manage to avoid injury. The same cannot be said for their mother however, and words cannot describe how upsetting the scene where they find her is, all I’ll say is it gets pretty graphic. Their mother dies shortly after the bombing and having nowhere else to go, Seita and Setsuko decide to go to their Aunt. 

    Things start out okay at first, but she becomes increasingly hostile towards Seita and Setsuko as it gets harder for her to feed so many people. Eventually Seita decides to leave his Aunt to fend for himself. He takes Setsuko to an abandoned bomb shelter where they stay. Initially things seem fine there too, but Seita eventually begins to run out of rations and becomes increasingly desperate to feed himself and his starving sister. And well, I think you all know where I’m going with this so I’ll stop here. 

    Out of all of Studio Ghibli’s films, this is easily their most realistic and  most depressing film. When I first watched this film, I remember crying by eyes out throughout the majority of the film (yeah wimpy I know, but I’m not ashamed). I also remember after I finished watching the film just going to take a shower just to cry for another 20 odd minutes (no further comment). So yeah, it was a very hard film to watch the first time. 

    And yet, despite sounding very harsh towards the film, I will say this. The film is a masterpiece. While some may misinterpret this as an pro-Japan anti-war film, I think firstly, please don’t. And secondly, it’s more a tragic tale about a honour-bound boy who sadly refuses to swallow his pride, which ultimately leads him and his little sister to pay the ultimate price. Seita is not by any means a bad person though, everything he does is done to ensure both his and Setsuko’s survival, it’s just that his choices were bad ones. 

    I’ve always felt that Takahata’s films were always meant for more mature audiences, something we’ll see in later films this month. And he seems to really know how to write people, I know that’s odd to say but it really helps films like this one. Overall, I can’t say whether I’d recommend this due to how emotionally powerful it is. But if you still find yourself enjoying it the first time despite this, then watch it again in the future. I promise you, it’ll be better after the second viewing."

  13. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sadness over the passing of Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata. 
    I'm sure I'm not the only Studio Ghibli fan here, but yeah, this is a pretty sad day (I know it was yesterday, but I didn't find out until this morning). 
    For those who don't know Studio Ghibli, they're an a Japanese animation studio behind some of the most famous anime films in the world. Such as Ponyo, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro or Spirited Away. 

    Isao Takahata's film were less fantasy orientated and more based on Japanese culture. I always felt like I was learning more about Japan watching his film. Perhaps the two that everyone remembers from him are The Tale of Princess Kaguya, a story about the old Japanese folktale of a tiny princess found inside a bamboo plant. And of course, Grave of the Fireflies, the heartbreaking story about two orphaned children trying to survive the last few months of World War II. 

    His films had a mostly very mature feel to them, which made it great to contrast the films done by Hayao Miyazaki.

    In honour of his passing I will be posting my reviews of his films that I've done on Tumblr and I'll be reblogging them on there. As well as finally giving my thoughts on Princess Kaguya which I've actually yet to go over. 

    Rest in Peace Isao Takahata

  14. Another issue is not everyone likes Shadow... Like me. I think he's the most overrated character in the series. I am sorry, but I never liked him outside of Adventure 2.
