  2. So Sonic is/was loaded with shonen tropes out the wazoo. Superpowers, alternate forms, some light butt rock, you name it. But instead of the baddies being a super warrior of ultimate darkness commonly seen you have.. Dr. Eggman. He's just an evil scientist who despoils nature. He's kind of a manchild and rather goofy. His only "superpower" is an IQ of 300 (which isn't even that great in the grand scheme of fiction)! Yet he's still here. He has enough charisma to get his own butt rock, let alone rapping stage music. His mechs are punching bags comparative to the cast yet most boss fights are still the doctor stepping into the fight himself for the umpteenth time. Looking at the other villains of fiction it seems no other place would have let someone like Eggman thrive; he'd have been disposed of in other series like Mega Man for a new flavor of Big Baddie but SEGA still acts as if he is Public Enemy #1. Even more so in the newer games! An obvious peanut gallery quip would be that they keep him around as a relic of the classics... I struggle to imagine how anyone would replace Dr Eggman though. With what? Find it hard to picture Sonic having the same spark without his first enemy around. Apparently enough people feel the same that the series still revolves around the same conflict for 29 years (and the ones that don't are in the minority). Personally, I'm drawn into him because of the "I did everything myself" aspect that almost colors his entire personality but it seems pretty unnoticed in all the discussions I've read about him. Is Dr. Eggman really that special/unique/magnetic as a bad guy to the audience? Come on, there has to be somebody who can put the sentiment into words.
  3. A day playing old Saturn games is a day well spent.

  4. Sounding off: Who else here plays tabletop RPGs?

  5. Hello. =) Just chiming in to see if you're all right. You OK?

      This always sounded like music you hear when you win a game show lol.

  7. I am you from the future. There's no time to explain. Follow me to- OH CHRIST

  8. I for one can't wait for the eventual adaptation where these lovable gals perform animal cruelty, spoil nature, and attend to an insane scientific genius while being punked by a symbol of the early 90's. I could actually see Motobug and Crabmeat using these as human disguises, so kudos. =)
  9. PS Crash revival mentioned in passing in toy fair interview (first 10 secs are there for context).

  10. Repost from Status Update(last few pages don't seem to talk about this so amusing it's new): http://www.polygon.com/2016/2/8/10756318/sonic-the-hedgehog-great-rocky-history It's another restrospective article about Sonic, but this one has an Iizuka interview buried in that's actually pretty relevant. Generations 2 anyone?

    Article with Iizuka interview that states Modern Sonic is staying after Sonic Boom's reception (25th Anniversary game to be a retrospective also).

    Press the Big Red Button if old.

  14. Curious... How does Bowser fare in competitive Smash?

      Usually considered low tier, but if you ask me he's one of the more viable heavyweights in the game next to Zard and DK.

    Temper your expectations, it's a rehash of A New Hope.

  19. Hello. Didn't expect to see another car buff here of all places.

  20. The headlines are an awfully sensitive subject to set entertainment in, and more often than not it just ends up falling through the floor because writers simply cannot handle it. With the recent upswing of civil disobedience that people increasingly resort to in these times, someone has decided to take the plunge in the hope the video games can see the issues in a new light. Enter RIOT: Urban Unrest. Billed as a riot simulator, the game follows the rash of riots & protests that are seemingly on the news all the time. Developed by Leonard Mechiari, a former cinematographer at Valve who was inspired to make the game after attending a NoTAV demonstration. Leonard interviewed people who had attended similar protests in an attempt to make the game as realistic as possible; the game has been likened as a "Playable Documentary", as it's levels are recreations of mass demonstrations such as Keratea, the Arab Spring, and Indignados. The developers claim to have spent a good deal of effort in AI, as it differentiates how the rioters & the police behave(both of which are playable): Rioters must be indirectly controlled by agitators & leaders, while the police are grouped into squads and must follow specific directions. Riots being what they are, the individual people in the group may do something totally unexpected, owing to stress, fear, etc. The game is coming out on Steam sometime in the end of this summer, with other platforms also on the cards. What do you think of this?
