      I really love it when people remember how good the bounce bracelet was. Even used the Drop Dash.

    2. Strickerx5


      Looks great! Though admittedly, I can't really bring myself to really get excited for these things all that much currently. Atm, we have quite a number of good fan engines, but not really any great levels that make use of them. I love where this is leading, but I want to take the next steps with all this now.


      though not locking things to 60fps like normal and going for a full on 120fps did butter my toast something fierce

      and those ending bits at the end... god I really hope some form of level builder toolkit is made available soon.

      A-Are these fan projects created by one person?

      I wonder why what they produce more often than not looks a damn sight better then a Sonic Team final product...?

      He really is a hero.

      Guys, come on lol

      - is not an open source engine is probably going to be a fangame

      - tails and knuckles are playable with their own moves. Watch the end of BOTH videos lol

    6. Diogenes


      it's an impressive amount of content, but i can't say i'm really interested in these "do everything" engines anymore. we've seen enough proof-of-concepts, i want to see people moving towards something resembling an actual game

    7. JosepHenry


      Is not a proof of concept, Hero says he will probably have a stage to show in the next update.

    8. Strickerx5


      @JosepHenryImo, maybe it should be. Often one of the big pitfalls of these projects is that they're limited to their own teams and their time schedules. I'd love for some form of SDK to be made available to the public so that more people can try their hand at actually building something out of this awesome work instead of hoping the same team can follow through at some point by themselves.

    9. Diogenes


      @JosepHenry ok, when that comes out, i'll decide if i'm interested. because all we've got now is proof of concept.

    10. JosepHenry


      Maybe it won't take too long cuz he plans this next update to be this year still. Which probably means he is already working on a stage.

      Despite all of that, I think this is the best engine of them all so far, for the simple fact that I WANT to play this test level just to se how Sonic feels, cuz if the video is anything to go by, I'm pretty sure this is the best Sonic has ever controlled so far. (And Tails and Knuckles.)

    11. KHCast


      I just hope the stage isn’t super linear with random platforms every now and then. Obviously it won’t be on the level of the official games, but I really would like the 3D equivalent of Sonic after the sequel at some point.

    12. dbzfan7


      That boost flight is genius. Tails best boi!

    13. Wraith


      I'll take a linear stage over another needlessly huge field 

    14. JosepHenry


      Linear doesn't mean Forces level design yeah

      I would like platforming challenges like a good linear level.

    15. KHCast


      I’ll take a actual stage over both that can utilize Sonic and his movement. Both linear and open styled designs for fan projects are boring and uninteresting to me. It’s why most Gens mods original stages I don’t find interesting 

      A good center would be nice 

    16. JosepHenry


      ... well is this or that,  it has to be good lol

      And the test zone seems to have great ideas for platforming already.

  1. Sonic not looking like an undead possum is good, but I hope they don't crack the whip on their vfx team to duct tape this turd in time for November. This movie probably won't be good anyway. It's not worth the effort.
  2. I'm not buying the game if that song is in it.
  3. I fucking love the babylon rogues guys

    1. Strickerx5


      Amazing what good writers can do with these characters.

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I like them too personally. We need more bird representation!

    3. Milo


      "Ah, the dirt suits you so well!"

  4. I appreciate the work that goes into all the fan edits and redesigns but I don't think the design is workable. There's just too much about it that's hard to look at even after tweaks.
  5. Got both. Didn't see a reason not to check all of them
  6. I don't think works should feel the need to hold insecure white men's hands and pat them on the head every time they're not the focus of what's on the screen. They sure as shit don't do that for us.
  7. Tisper? Twhisper? What do I call it?



    Definitely not that one

  8. I have a lot to say here but crappy hospital wifi is a pain. I'll try and keep it short. Nintendo removing the stage is as much as a political statement as the stage itself. You are not "neutral" when you censor content. You're putting your foot down against that kind of self expression. I don't know about you all, but I think a trans person expressing pride in who they are on a platform for self expression is a far cry from any overt bigotry or hatred that should be removed from the platform and would be tolerated if it was something else like national pride. And save the concern about billion dollar Nintendo's bottom line. You as a consumer have no reason to be concerned about that and wouldn't be if it was something you wanted.
  9. Stark has pretty much always looked like RDJ beneath the mask. RDJ modeled his look after the comic character for the films. As usual the Avengers movies just aren't a good comparison to use. We're dealing with translating much more exaggerated and stylized designs, here. Stop using Marvel as a point of reference when there was a much easier translation to make in comparison with most Marvel characters being humanoid Watch other movies.
  10. It blows my mind how some of you will read the text in this very metaphysical series that is about magic and the power of friendship and stuff so literally.
  11. My big hope is that Kishimoto is assigned to a different franchise. It's hard to pick up a trail regarding recent Sonic games but there's a pretty clear trend of poor level design from the games he directed that I want broken. I haven't seriously examined the credits on the games to be sure though.
  12. You guys are tripping. Knuckles pulling off on Rouge with that face gave me life
  13. I'd want a Sonic Adventure made nowadays to sound and feel modern and not so much like the 90s

    Sonic adventure kinda had a pulse on the real world and I'd want that to continue

    1. SupahBerry


      So you'd basically want what Generations did with the dubstepish remixes for Classic?

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      A truly "Modernized" SA1? Ew.

    3. Ernest the Panda

      Ernest the Panda

      Noooo thank you.

  14. The staff changes along with the way the tides are shifting with gaming culture make me think the next game will be very different. More focused on the free movement of the older days. The boost style came from an era where games were focused on simple mechanics and cinematic appeal to begin with, but times have changed and I expect Sonic will try and change with it, as he always does. Hard to predict anything beyond that, though.
  15. It becomes a little bit more baffling when you remember Sonic games have characters overcome emotional hurdles pretty much as soon as they were capable of illustrating such. Sonic 3 has a moment where Knuckles has to swallow pride and admit he's wrong about Sonic and almost every game since tackles new characters in this way. So the decision to sidestep this for Sonic feels less like an airheaded mistake and more deliberate. I've enjoyed Sonic's portayal in some of these games but I think part of the reason Sonic's friends carved out their own cult following despite arguably being detrimental to many games overall is that the emotions they experience can be a bit more varied and down to earth compared to him. Maekawa or whoever was writing those games seemed to think having moments of humility was important but Sonic was somehow above it a lot of the time. On the whole I think making Sonic too humble would be a big mistake but too far in the opposite direction is too limiting. One thing I do appreciate about colors on are a change to this way of handling him, mixed as the results may be.
  16. Looking cool joker

  17. Sonic fans and Star Wars fans are similar to me in that they hang around a franchise that they seem to think is mostly shit, focus on the negative aspects all the time, and act like they're somehow victims at the end of it all instead of people who just like complaining.
  18. Endgame sounds crazy lmao

    1. KHCast


      When I heard the spoilers came out I knew you would be all over them 

  19. There are some concepts across all Sonic games I really like but as far as narrative goes SA1 and SA2 >>>>>> the rest. 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      SA2 is always going to seem weird to me for its use of "the government" and "the military". Do those really belong in a Sonic game? Really? It only got worse with ShTH.

      It still manages to tell a better story than most things to come since though, and SA1 is definitely the winner in all fronts. 

    2. Wraith


      Sa2's portrayal of the government borders on satirical with how over the top and incompetent they are and they work as bad guys due to Sonic's natural aversion to authority imo.

    3. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      I think 2's narrative worked for what it was - a large-scope adventure to see off the Dreamcast and celebrate the 10th anniversary - but I don't think stuff like that should be par-for-the-course for the series.

      1's (the overall story beats, the writing not so much) felt like a perfect evolution of what the Genesis games established - give me more of that and I'm good.

    4. dbzfan7


      I think as long as it is handled fine, it's not a big deal. I think only the end of SA2, and Shadow maybe went too deep. But at the beginning you have a big "Fuck you" Truck chasing you which is just ridiculous. 

      I also don't mind it as it helps build the world. I mean Forces had two military armies going at it essentially. Though the other reason I'm ok with it is it added far more than it took away. As well as memorable scenes. Can't say that for anything new unless it's for the wrong reasons. 

      Honestly after Sonic Unleashed, there's been 0 new special iconic moments to remember. Nothing is special anymore. Not even Sonic. They do their best to make him mundane as possibly for laughs. Gameplay aside which aged, SA1 and SA2 are pretty much the most memorable plot driven games bar none.

      Sonic Adventure 2 suffers a bit when you actually stop and analyze the plot.


      It might be a poor localization though. I also feel like some characters besides Sonic Shadow and Eggman end up feeling superfluous given their overall role.


      That said, I still like it for what it does.

    6. Soniman


      Maybe the child murder and public execution footage was a bit though far though 

    7. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      Its funny because that's not too much for the average Shonen. 

  20. I've wanted an open world star wars game for a while but this seems to be more traditional linear action game fare which I don't mind. Was hoping for a less generic setup but this seems to be a safe game designed to garner goodwill from fans more than anything else. I normally very much trust Respawn but no gameplay footage is concerning. I was excited to see the movement mechanics they draw from the force but I guess EA could use the pr for E3. I'm not really sold yet since there's nothing to really go off of, but that could change. Just bummed about the slow burn PR
  21. Had a moment where I was like wait why isn't Mario and Sonic on PS4

    1. Adamabba


      lmao I did too a couple days ago

  22. Been off for a couple of days. 


    I'm fine but I busted my leg up really bad

      Glad to hear you're okay man. 

    2. RedFox99


      Hope you get better 

    3. Adamabba


      Sorry to hear that, get well soon

    4. KHCast


      Bustin legs by bustin moves too hard again huh? Lol 

      but seriously, good to hear you’re alright 

    5. Diz


      Get well soon, and stay safe!

    6. Wraith
