  1. Jesus, ChaosX is doing miracles with the 06 PC project.

      Loads more impressive than the older fan project. This one actually feels like it has the small tweaks that make the big differences. It's very silly out of context, but it honestly must feel good to hear people express in shock that "Sonic is fast."

       

      But wow, that sure explains why they're called Hentai Quills.

      Silver actually looks really cool in this

  2. Almost midnight here, so happy Easter for those who celebrate it. It seems the last couple of major festivities periods have been under a negative light for me, for one reason or the other, i hope you all are doing better.
    As usual, i extend my thanks to all of you of the SSMB for bearing me for all these years, you have been an important support of part of my life now, and it's even from a community of a franchise i didn't even cared about. How weird is that?

    Uh, haven't seen this in a while. Weird that Ubisoft lost the IP rights.

      I remember my cousins had this game years ago 

    2. Fallen Angel Yohane

      Fallen Angel Yohane

      Oh hey its that game I kept confusing with Killer7 for some reason!

  4. Holy shit, NetherRealm Studios and WB finally managed to integrate the MK movie theme for a proper MK game. I can't believe it.

  5. https://gematsu.com/2019/04/castlevania-anniversary-collection-launches-may-16-full-lineup-announced

     

    If it runs decently, for 20 bucks i can get this, even better if it gets on sale. If the Contra and Arcade collections are also like this, i'm getting the full package.
    Here's hoping the Requiem duology can get a port on the other consoles and PC as well.

      I can understand no sotn but...really no Rondo???

    2. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Dude, there is gonna be a second collection. So Rondo and Symphony are totally gonna be in there

       

      Hopefully is gonna be:

      Main games
      * Rondo

      * Circle
      * Dissonance

      Secret
      * Aria

      Soniman

      Was a second game confirmed?

    4. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Yes.

      From the start. 

      It said something like "this is the first collection"

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      @JosepHenry I'm expecting the second collection to encompass the Rondo-SotN duology and the 3D titles (i.e. Castlevania 64, Legacy of Darkness, Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness, possibly Judgment too). The GBA and DS games are tricky because of the reduced sprite quality (though to be fair, this first collections includes GB games, so it's more possible than i think) and the gimmicky touch controls that would have to be implemented in other ways for versions different from ones that can use them (i.e. PC, handled mode Switch and stretching it far, the PS4 controller).

    8. JosepHenry
  6. Of course people are already making NSFW images with the Smash level editor. It's like the Miiverse mail all over again.

  7. It's always so fun getting depressed and having arguments with your family during festivities.
    I'd have to get more vodka next Monday, but i wonder if i should get some already now.

  8. Just so you know, be on the lookout because Avengers: Endgame spoilers are starting to show up due to early screen leaks.

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      Thanks for the heads up

  9. Update on the news on Notre Dame: apparently, while part of the upper roof has been destroyed like the spire and some of the stain-glass windows, the main structure has been uncompromised and is safe now, as are the cathedral treasures conserved in the sacristy.
    The cause of the fire is still not known, so it's too soon to define it accidental or a terrorist attack, but in case, it may be the french equivalent to America's 9/11.

    1. PaddyFancy

      PaddyFancy

      9/11!? Certainly not. Three thousand people died as a result of 9/11. Two historic landmarks were knocked down to an enormous pile of rubble as a deliberate act of devil monsters hijacking planes.

      In Paris, most of the building is said to be safe. No-one apparently was killed. Its a super long way from being a French 9/11.

    2. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Yeah, I have to agree with Paddy here. While the fire is certainly devastating for some people, comparing it to one of the worst terrorist attack in America seems like a real stretch.

    3. PaddyFancy

      PaddyFancy

      What this does remind me of, is the Bank Buildings fire in Belfast, Northern Ireland last August. Its a historic structure, though mostly known to those living in the country. Certainly not world famous, no book or Disney animated film written. Belfast came together in solidarity to carry on as normal after several businesses were affected by the exclusion zone enforced, that gradually shrank over time, although currently the Tesco Metro remains shut to this day for being too close.

      No-one died in that incident either, but the old building was gutted. Just the charred shell of the facade holding in a pile of rubble.

    4. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      What about the Brazilian museum that burnt down?

    5. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Yeah.. gonna say no on that last part myself. I fully realize both the historical and religious significance of the structure but in all honesty, this was pretty controlled all things considered. As of writing, there were 0 casualties which is a blessing in itself and fully eliminates it from being anywhere near the level of 9/11, thankfully. Not to mention that most of the structure is still standing and can be rebuilt.

      This could've been A LOT worse and it's a miracle that it wasn't. What happened today was devastating, yes. But it wasn't, by any means, a 9/11 event.

    6. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      The only think this has in common with 9/11 is that there are two towers. I'm just so relive to know the building still stands and most everything is safe now.

      I've loved watching Hunchback since as a kid and took part in a performance of that almost a year ago. So it was highly unsettling for me to first hear about it and watch as the scariest part of that movie virtually come to life. But no one was hurt, and only a portion of the architecture has been lost. And even that portion isn't gone for good. We can rebuild it back to what it mostly was before.

    7. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Yeah, if a terrorist wanted to start Paris' version of 9/11 (assuming they were even responsible for this to begin with), they'd probably target something much more packed with people with heavy significance, like the Eiffel Tower or the Louvre during peak tourist hours or something. Notre Dame has significance historically, but like everyone else noted, the damage was pretty minimal and controlled, and the building can be rebuilt given time.

  10. You know SEGA, when i said i wanted a modern port of the Sakura Wars games i didn't asked you'd take the title of the third game to the letter.

     

    -more seriously, hope there are no casualties-

  11. It's only a teaser so i'll not unbalancve myself much, but the only fear i have for Episode IX is Disney wastily retconning or pretending Episode VIII (or at least most of it) never happened because of the shitstorms. Wich considering the statements after Solo, i dread may be a solid rising possibility.

  12. So now that we have a photo of a black hole, can we have the Gatekeeper send someone into it for testing?

    1. AlphaRuby

      AlphaRuby

      Depends on which Gatekeeper.

      The VHS one would throw all of us there because we rolled the dice wrong, but the DVD one would do it for lols

  13. Has anyone tried to draw Ken Penders satirically as Dan Backslide? It would kinda fit.

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      Penders should have zero association with a work of art as pure and perfect as The Dover Boys at Pimento University

  14. Dang.

  15. Been a busy week this one with little internet avaible, so for fun i tested how far i could go in 7 days with the Zodiac Age PS4 version of Final Fantasy XII.
    Not only thanks to the speed boost i managed to get pretty far (right at the end of the Giruvegan story bits and with most hunts and sidequests so far completed) and the rebalancing in Licenses and stats was welcome and refreshing (plus the orchestral soundtrack is really appreciated, the new Archadian Empire Theme is so deliciously aggressive) but the story is actually better than i remembered.
    I mean, they technically didn't added anything, but thanks to the better presentation (there's still a lot of blur sadly and the voice quality still presents some issues, but overall is definetly a giant upgrag) and me having a more deep judgment than 10 years ago i think the problems i thought for years were way too inflated. It's still not a perfect story, there is missing stuff and due to Matsuno's illness the pace problem between story bits is visible, but i think it's still a story worth of the mainline FF series, and a testament to the depth of Matsuno's writing; it really does feel like the compromise between the way too happy-go-lucky atmosphere of Tactics Advance and the at times excessive gloom of War of the Lions and Vagrant Story. If the plot had managed to be completed, i'd say it would be my new favourite mainline title thanks to this remaster alone, Square really did its homeworks here.

      And yes, they also fixed Vaan's abs in case you're wondering.

  16. Yup, the trailer confirms what I feared: Joker looks boring as fuck, and since there's no point to it, I'll gladly skip it.

    1. KHCast

      There’s a trailer??

      Oh the joker movie

      Fallen Angel Yohane

      I think he looks too old to be Joker? I dunno. If this is some weird setup to get him the DCMU well uhhhh... How does he look younger in the present?

    5. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      The higher ups already confirmed it's a stand-alone non-canonical movie.

      Play the new Paw Patrol game in the meantime? I mean it has paw in its name...

  18. It's a good thing that I spent most of April Fool's day painting ceilings, so I missed all the pranks.

    Well, as expected, Ubisoft has no problems being at E3. Hopefully we can get a release date for Skull and Bones and more news on BG&E2 other than the obligatory Just Dance musical number.
    Also Prince of Persia revival, pls.

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      Better be decent since everyone else keeps dropping out. E3 being gutted sucks because it used to be the highlight of my uneventful summers tbh.

      yes i still wish they did big stage presentations

    4. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Meh, even if it's just another themed Direct, Nintendo still technically counts in some fashion. Same for EA.
      We already got confirmation from Microsoft and Bethesda, so really it's just Sony who's skipping the conference (unless they dedicate a State of Play to it).

  22. One of the things i'm most curious about the Fox properties after the Disney buyout is definetly Alien, especially since the Mouse has been reported to be very interested in the franchise. Wich let's be honest, has been since the second movie in a terrible spot thanks to bad direction and most recently to Ridley Scott's wackyness (the Isolation videogame being the only saving grace), so we still need to see if that next prequel movie bridging between Covenant and the first movie will be made. Other than that, i can imagine maybe having a 5th movie to close off the Ripley saga and possibly the timeline and a streaming/TV series. Hell, maybe they can even relaunch that failed attempt at a kid's cartoon that was considered in the '90s.

  23. Either people set their expectations too high or Nintendo fans are salty that Sony is daring trying use their usual format for improving their communication skills.
    I'm gonna say both because while not excellent in content showcase, this SoP didn't deserved half of the shitstorm it's recieving. At least.
    But as usual, today's Internet is more of a witch hunt without caring for context or possibility of improvement or redemption.

    1. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Eh, maybe the loud minority are in it for a witch hunt. But honestly, perhaps the majority legit didn't like it because it felt weak,  especially given how cocky Sony have been acting lately. 

    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Not an excuse to be this aggresive though, this has barely been released for a few hours and everyone on the Internet is treating like it's the antichrist.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      *rolls eyes* it was boring. Blaming people for being Nintendo fanboys is in itself coming off biased and ignores the possibility it was a uneventful thing that put its focus on a peripheral not many people have an interest in. It wasn’t shit, no, but it wasn’t good either. Doesn’t mean it can’t improve next time. Hell, nintendo as much as they get them right, have their shit days regarding directs too. End of the day, these are companies that will make billions regardless, so we shouldn’t get defensive or act like they’re getting bullied when some express disappointment in a direct, e3 conference, etc.

    4. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Meh,  it's their opinion. I've seen just as much legit criticism. I wouldn't act like all or the majority are really that out of line "witch hunt" style. 

      And yeah,  like @KHCastsaid,  it was boring. People are allowed to find boring as terrible.

      For that people would have to be willing to allow a next time to happen, wich according to the average comment, it's not what they're saying.

    6. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Uh,  Teo. Just because the comments suggest people didn't like it doesn't mean we don't give them a fair chance each time. 

      Otherwise, that would mean that Nintendo are screwed whenever they've had a lackluster showing. 

    7. KHCast

      KHCast

      When commenters shit on a bad Nintendo direct, does that stop Nintendo from making them? No. So what’s the problem? Sony isn’t some fragile little Timmy that’ll stop just cause comments say it was bad

    8. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      That in itself though shouldn't be allowed as an excuse to overreact. Just because you have power doesn't mean you should abuse it.
      You can't convince me there isn't bias of any kind behind this, sorry. People weren't this vocal when Xbox had its Inside Xbox shows being slogfests, they just couldn't care less about them.

    9. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Admittedly,  Microsoft didn't make as high a big deal out of Inside Xbox as Sony were with State of Play. 

      Also,  calling out Sony for a lackluster show =/= "overreacting".

    10. KHCast

      KHCast

      Okay, well I have a PlayStation and mainly game on that, and I think it was a pretty shit boring event. Has nothing to do with a Nintendo bias in my case, and I’m sure most people feel the same. Also Microsoft at this point to people is kinda looked at as meh. They’ve been meh for the entire generation, so then having a meh direct, is pretty on line with expectations. 

    11. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Yeah,  honestly the whole accusation of console fanboyism when these kinds of things get called out is so old and outdated.

    12. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Yet Switch fans are always ready to cry out at companies for not making versions for their console of current games, to the point of menacing boycotting the entire company as a result.
      I'm sure Voldemort never returned either.

    13. Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice

      Can we not resort to generalizations? It doesn't really help whatever point you're trying to make here. 

      Especially when fans want to legit show companies that that there is demand for the game on Nintendo systems. And don't lump everyone into one group. 

      Also,  if you don't think so highly of them,  why even pay them the level of mind that you tend to?

    14. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @Teoskaven It does sound like your thinking is a little too black and white. Reality ain't that simple. Why even let the extremist views get to you? Every community will have that type of individual. They are loud but they don't speak for everyone.

      You shouldn't let their own hate influence your own. Relax and enjoy the content, if you don't, you don't. If you do, you do. If you happen to be surrounded by unpleasant extreme views and can't ignore them, you might be better off finding a different part of the internet to hang out in.

      I'm not talking about myself, but Sony itself. If some idiot at the PR department sees all these comments, articles and videos with clickbait approach like "Sony should never do this again" or "This has been absolutely dreadful, my dreams have been crushed", the message that will get will be to never do this kind of presentations ever again. And considering how polarizing the recent events like E3 have been for Sony, cancelling what's a good idea is not something i would want. Transform that message in "this needed more stuff, please put more next time" wich still is criticism, but in a better form that can help rather than destroy.

      >inb4 Sony should hire better people for PR then
      Yes, but as the THQ Nordic situation shown, companies don't mind too much on who they hire or keep checks on for their PR department so for now i'm gonna assume they need to be spoonfed information and suggestions in the clearest way possible.

       

      @Jovahexeon Fitzroy Because anyone can change and for this situation i'm willing to give a try.

      So am I, despite not liking it. Pretty much,  most everyone else is waiting to see it get better. But they're not obligated to be optimistic about it. It's up to Sony to actually provide something that gives people hope.

      Honestly, just like with SEGA Capcom or anyone else, if Sony misconstrue stuff that way, it's their fault. Not the consumer's. And the consumer has no obligations to sugar coat things for their sakes.

    17. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      It was horrible.  Just saying.  Must of the games looked like demos, could easily have been smaller announcements or were covering up the fact they were actually delayed without mentioning it even.

      The fact that most of these were VR-exclusive meant that most of the people who have  vanilla PS4 would be unable to play it anyways.  A PSVR set cost almost as much as the Nintendo Switch itself, and that's not including the games.  Literally, very few games have been acclaimed, with Game Informer once mentioning that the only true full game was Resident Evil.

  24. I prefer playing SEGA heroes myself, personally.
