  1. The Wonderful 101 is good as long as you're cool with a good 15 hours of learning how to play it

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      How long is the game?

    2. Wrapped in Black

      Maxtiis

      Well it is a game from Platinum, that's pretty typical for them. Imagine if a non competitive game like that had the learning period of something like a fighting game. 

      I've spent two and a half years playing Street Fighter 3 and still suck at it lol.

    4. KHCast

      KHCast

      So you’re spending the whole game learning it before you fully enjoy it lol?

      Your first playthrough of a platinum game is just the training mode lol. Or just any game that had Hideki Kamiya's involvement.

      @KHCast

      Basically, lmao.  The mechanics of W101's combat are incredibly obtuse. The game tries to do so much in such a bizarre way. Even when you do learn its ins and outs, it's still kind of a clusterfuck.

      It kind of feels like the game wasn't actually made to appeal to any particular person outside of Kamiya himself, and I kind of dig that. It's like the greatest shitty game ever made in a lot of ways.  10/10

    8. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I wonder how much if at all the characters for 101 were inspired by that midget power rangers boss fight from God Hand.

  2. I enjoy talking about Sonic mechanics way more than I do Sonic lore

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Sonic lore is beyond repair.

      Sonic mechanics on the other hand get a fresh start every game.

    2. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      I honestly like most Sonic lore/characters fine it's just maddening trying to get people to agree on what the fuck actually happened/where the problems are most of the time.

    3. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      Game mechanics are interesting.

      Especially what could've been.

    4. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I like when game mechanics reflect of have implications on personalities; the boost or really any quick dash attack can easily be reflective of Sonic's move first, ask questions later policy; and being reckless with it can put him in a tough spot.

      The real problems start when some fans start considering one more important than the other.

  3. Could a Sonic character rock a flowing cape or would that be too busy

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Well, Sonic's done that as Excalibur Sonic. It was pretty cool.

    2. The Master
    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      If Vector can have a gold chain and make it work then a character can have a cape.

    4. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      aesthetically i think it could work. i think there's been a few pieces of official art with the characters wearing capes (halloween stuff mostly) and i don't think it looked out of place. i'd be a bit worried about how well it would animate in a game, though, given all the wild acrobatics the characters do.

    5. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I think it'd work out pretty well with Blaze and her acrobatic movements

    6. Stay at Home Ultima

      Stay at Home Ultima

      Technically...

      Classic eggman has a small Cape I guess, Whisper is close enough??

      @Zaysho reminds me of her concept art of her wearing a poncho.

      KHCast

      Was this due to me bringing up the music from ATS the other day? Either way, I approve lol

  5. Shadow's complete contempt for humanity and nihilistic outlook in SA2 represents the opposite of Sonic's lust for life and positions him as the ultimate foil. You can also compare how inseparable Sonic and Tails are with Shadow's loss of his sister and how Sonic is a free spirit that is unchained to the past unlike Shadow. IN this ESSAY I WILL.

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Even after SA2, Shadow never really let's go of his judgemental and nihilistic attitude, but he's decided to put it towards a positive goal which continuously makes him a great foil Sonic's upbeat and magnetic attitude.

  6. I like how this looks to play. Probably not the grand reinvention of 3D Sonic people are looking for but it seems fun.

    1. The Man On The Inside

      The Man On The Inside

      A good, accurate-looking remake of AIZ, with the bosses, and solid slope physics. Just being able to freely run around as Sonic in a 3D space with full camera control is something we're starved for right now, so the fangames are filling that void perfectly. It probably won't happen but to see the rest of the game like this would be awesome. The creator has done an amazing job

    2. Sean

      Sean

      I am fucking DOWN with this shit

    3. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      This looks great, I hope they'll be able to make this a full game.

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      A massive improvement over the Infinity engine showcase. It makes great use of the Advance 2 boost mode, the animations feel more in line with the games with consistant blending and smooth speeds, and doesn't go crazy with the bloom.

      Level looks up there with Gens Green Hill with just the 3d segments. Bosses seem simpiler than the orginals, but they're there and are functional, a real stand out amongst other fan projects.

    5. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      yeah this one looks pretty good. still rough around the edges but it's got a better sense of how 3d sonic levels should be designed than the vast majority of projects

    6. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      The bosses are what most excite me. I mean yeah, they're pretty simple and rough around the edges, but it'd be nice to have competently-designed boss fights in a Sonic game again.

    7. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Camera-work makes me feel a bit dizzy, but over the years I've become more sensitive to that kind of thing (can't play first-person games for example). I'd probably prefer it if it were a bit farther away or wasn't constantly adjusting itself behind Sonic. Other than that, it looks quite fun.

    8. Milo

      Milo

      I do like the level design in terms of level progression and routes, but the camera looks like it could use some heavy refinement, at least based on this playthrough. 

      More of a personal complaint, but I'm also pretty much over this mishmash of Adventure/traditional platformer gameplay and Boost/speedrunning platformer gameplay that a fair amount of 3D Sonic engines seem to follow nowadays.

      EDIT: Also forgot to mention that the sound mixing is lacking. You can't hear rings at all over the music, while the checkpoints and springs are distinctly louder.

      "Sonic 3 06' Unleashed" edition.

      Nice touch allowing the boss to drop the bombs which are dropped (by the airship) before the boss fight in Sonic 3.

      You'll notice Cream and Vanilla are suspiciously absent from that tier list.

  8. Peach is probably hypnotized or something since that happens in all of these but it would be much funnier if Mario came over one day and found she had joined a cult willingly

      unless you're talking about in universe, of course, because then it really would be an image that precedes an unfortunate event lol

      Kuzu

      I knew it was Sonic related, but it didn't look like the Adventure intro lmao. 

  16. This isn't meant to be a dig at Sonic Lost World, but it just occured to me that Speak With Your Heart may have been a better theme for that game since it's about Sonic and Tails having some communication issues before reconciling 

    1. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      As far as it SOUNDS it fits Sonic Colors fine with all the synthesized instruments and the cheesy feel but yeah. 

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      What would the theme of Wonder World be if it had lyrics? I imagine it soundly some musical theatre number bout the call to adventure or something

    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I mean, they're made by the same director so it doesn't surprise me that they share similar thematic elements. 

  17. Not liking marine is like the biggest red flag 

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I'm inclined to believe most people simply don't care about her given she's had ''one'' appearance which was over 10 years ago.

    2. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      I get that the Aussie lingo irritated people but ever since playing Rush Adventure all I can think is how dare you

    3. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I never hated her, but I can understand why she wouldn't be liked: The "bratty child" archetype is one that's never really popular. It's part of the reason people give Charmy shit.

    4. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Who cares if she's a brat at least she's tryin'

      She wants to build a boat and make friends and go on an adventure for treasure with her best friend Blaze LET HER FOLLOW HER DREAMS DAMMIT

      Waveshocker Sigma

      I don't hate Marine, but I why folks don't like her.

      Plus, as a duo, I'll always prefer Blaze and Cream.

    7. Sean

      Sean

      I'm indifferent to her. At least she's not Sticks

    8. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Okay but how about Cream and Marine, playing together?

       

      Man forget team girls or darkness or future or whatever, why can't we follow a gang of the series' kids throughout an adventure for once

    9. The Master

      The Master

      I miss Marine. At least she was funny on occasion, gave us one of the best Shadow moments ever.

    10. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      marine was great. spunky, kind of a fuckup, had actual goals, went through actual development and growth. no character is for everyone and i could see being annoyed by the constant australianisms but i've always been a little surprised the fanbase's reception of her was so chilly.

    11. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I feel like Marine is the type of character you need to look beneath the surface to really appreciate; at face value, she's pretty annoying and unhelpful, which aren't exactly likable traits so I can understand people writing her off on that alone.

      But beneath the surface, she's actually a pretty good character; not amazing, but still pretty solid and it's a shame we'll probably never see her again due to making a bad first impression.  

    12. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      90% of the reasons I hated charmy are gone because of the fact that she doesn't have a voice actor.

    13. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Yea, now imagine if she did have a voice and I think your impression of her would go down immensely. 

    14. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I don't really know who Marine is, because I haven't played Sonic Rush Adventure.

       

      but she cute in the comics

    15. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      The fact that giving more eccentric characters a voice actor can demolish their likability factor by so much is a reason I've never understood the demand for, say, Zelda to have them, when wacky npcs are basically a staple of the series. Feels like a disaster waiting to happen.

    16. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      This isn't really helping the popular opinion that Sonic characters are better by simply not speaking. 

    17. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      I dont care if dumbasses think dumbass things kuzu

    18. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Then we must be prepared if they give Marine the most australian sounding voice in existence., 

  18. Making a whole Mario world sounds like a fun time waster to take on but I need to finish making my second level first :(

    1. Milo

      Milo

      my last/7th-gen self, that was all into UGC games like the littlebigplanet series and modnation racers, would absolutely kill for something like SMM and its sequel

      a part of me is kinda sore i haven't gotten those games, and kinda fallen off UGC stuff as a whole (even something like sonic studio and dreams i'm only kinda side-eyeing for now)

  19. SA2 topic coming tomorrow

      today is tomorrow post it now do it do it do it

      Can we do just a general Adventure topic or is this just SA2?

  20. replaying sonic 3 now. its good but i feel like i understand the sonic 2 is better people a lot more now this time

    1. Thigolf

      Thank you

  21. Almost done with 7 Remake. It's got a lot of problems but I can safetly say it's my favorite Square Enix release this gen.

    1. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Its so fucking good, it actually makes me wanna go back to Square's other games. 

    2. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon
    3. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      Are those problems related to the final chapter or in general? 

    4. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      In general. I don't care about what they did with the ending that much in the grand scheme of things.

    5. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Ending? I thought you said you were almost done with the game?

      That said, is that an "I don't care" in the sense that it's a bad ending or just an okay one?

    6. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      Ok, that's a lot more rational take than what I've seen since people started talking about the ending. While I understand the complaints, sometimes I feel like people think they know what's going on when they actually have a reading comprehension of a 2-year-old. 

    7. Wrapped in Black

      Wrapped in Black

      I sympathize with the whiners to a degree since I would prefer the story to be mostly untouched but it's fairly obvious where Nomura and Nojima  are taking this twist and it's not as drastic of a rewrite as people think it is, lol. I actually kinda like it as far as metacommentary goes. 

  22. 7 remake good 

    1. FReaK

      Gonna jump in soon,

  23. me: square enix should embrace stylized graphics and take a load off their artists and not do do insane things like render the first 2 hours of a PS1 game in such insane detail that it takes up 80GB on your PS4

    also me: tifa abs 4K

    1. Soniman

      "10 years". We'll be lucky if it's just that.
