  1. Would you be upset if Sega just made blue arms canon at this point? Like they release the next main Sonic game and Sonic has a new model with blue arms?

    1. Tarnish
    2. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Yes, because blue arms looks rubbish.

    3. Panda Claus
    4. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Sure would.

      Yeah, Sonic and Amy are the only characters with peach arms, but clear to see distinctions are part of the design philosophy of lead characters (though Any was kind of just following the in universe appearance that was set by Sonic pre Shadow and Silver). That, and blue arms just like individual eyes really rubs me and my aesthetic tastes the wrong way.

    5. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      it'd be an unnecessary and overall negative change but it's not significant enough to get upset over.

    6. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Hell yes I would.

    7. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Nah, blue arms look better in some cases anyways

    8. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      I always thought that both blue arms and flesh arms were canon. One was just Sonic after he hasn't shaved in a while

  2. I'm slowly starting to hit burnout with Pokemon Shield. Really need a new game to play. Is the new Mario and Sonic any good?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I've not played it myself, but I've heard it's very much just what you would expect. Simple minigames, and a fun enough story that will keep you entertained for a just a few hours. No replay value.

  3. Did anyone here buy New Super Lucky's Tale on Switch?

    1. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I haven't, but I'm really considering it. Their is a demo on the Switch if you wanted to try it.

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Yep. Beat it 100%. Great 3D platformer.

    3. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I’m considering getting it. Might get it in place of A Hat in Time, since I heard the Switch port for that wasn’t good.

  4. Watching the original Lion King atm. What happened with the remake? Like I enjoyed it for what it was, but it lacked heart and soul. Disney even went out of their way to get a few of the old production members to help guide them along and oversee development. How did they fuck up?? Did the new team just ignore the old team members? Is this a Sonic movie situation we're looking at?

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      The drive for "heart" was pretty much thrown right out the door the very moment they decided to go realistic with the characters; specifically the lions.

      Cats don't really emote. Which means your main cast can't really express deep emotions visually. That's a huge problem to work around, animated or not.

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      As well as what Stricker said, the colour pallet was also realistic so can't touch the originals vibrant and beautiful colours as well as the music being nowhere near as good (Elton John has admitted as much) and lastly, some actors just not emoting much (I love James Earl Jones but man, he was neutered in the 2019 version). The only one I feel who brought their A game was Hans Zimmer, who did a really good reprise of his score.

  5. If the FF's do return to IDW can Sally be fully covered this time? And not have a large chest. People seem obsessed with making Sally a fanservice-y character and that's honestly part of my disdain for them.

    1. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      She was already fully covered in the reboot.

      And she has been ever since.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      She hasn't been sexualized for years even before the reboot changed her clothes so I don't have a problem with what she wears

    3. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      *sees what year it is*

      Uh huh...

    4. Tornado

      tits or gtfo

  6. The downside to playing remastered games in 2019 is that a PS2 game controls exactly like a PS2 game

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      I'm not sure that means much if the game controlled well to begin with.

      But obviously it's the game.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Even games that controlled well back in the day feel different to how games control now. There have been a lot of nuanced improvements that aren't always that obvious.

    3. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      I remember going back to Melee after years and realising how many of the controls were minimally yet so noticeably different compared to the current Smash games.

      I hate Melee’s controls now.

  7. <video> I did not expect EDM in a Fire Emblem game but this theme slaps

     

  8. Over 50 hours clocked on FE: Three Houses so far. Still at least 5 more chapters to get through. These maps are getting harder and harder.

  9. So if Mario Maker 3 ever comes out on Nintendo's next big console release. Can we please make our own Yoshi's Island levels?

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      If Mario maker 3 comes out can they do 3D levels?

    2. Celestia

      Celestia

      I could see YI being the mysterious second extra game style right next to 3D World. It's a different enough game from the original four after all, more so than 3DW even.

    3. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      i'd prefer they stick to more traditional mario gameplay and just keep adding more enemies, objects, gimmicks, etc. smb2 should get in (in a modified form if necessary) but beyond that games like YI are just too different mechanically.

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Even if it's still the closest to the Mario timeline, the Yoshi subseries has become as much its own franchise as Donkey Kong and Wario. I really doubt either three will ever be considered for inclusion with a mainline Mario centered title. And while I'd like a DKC Kreator, I afraid neither series holds enough ground to carry their own level maker game.

    5. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      I just want more customization options.

  10. How are you supposed to win the mission races in TSR? I can't even get through Adventure mode because they're such BS.

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      (Literally only answer I have for you)

  11. TSR is a lot of fun. I'm having a blast.

  12. I played Sonic Classic Collection for the first time in forever today. I really wanted to play some S3K. The levels themselves okay but oh god the special stages are horrible!

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      SCC is nice for simply being the Classics on the go, but fuck if they aren't the absolute worst emulations ever. I can just about look past the squashed resolution, but the performance issues are way too strong to ignore. The S3K special stages are particularly bag with the frame drops and broken scrolling. The SK bonus stage with the plasma balls has random garbled graphics throughout the background too. The game was not made with any integrity whatsoever.

      What system are you playing it on? If you're using an original DS or DS Lite is even worse. At least on the DSi and 3DS the performance is much higher.

    2. Kittea

      Kittea

      The Special Stages were the reason I put that version down.

    3. Red

      Red

      @Blue Blood I'm playing it on a New 3DS XL. I just tortured myself getting all Emeralds with Tails without realizing he can't transform yet. So now I have to do it all over again with Sonic!

  13. Seeing Endgame in just a few hours from now. Can't wait!

    1. KHCast
    2. PaddyFancy

      PaddyFancy

      in 24 hours I'll be about halfway through.

    3. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      I have 31 hours.

  14. Are Sega ever going to fire Pontaff. Are we cursed to endure their terrible writing forever?

    1. Tarnish

      Tarnish

      Apparently SEGA/Sonic Team these days have a knack to hire the worst people for their own games.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's not even a case of firing them, because they don't work at SEGA. It's more like they just need to stop contracting them cause they bad at the job they're being contracted for.

      Although all that said, SEGA/Sonic Team are constantly giving them bad material to work with. They're not the only ones that deserve a bit of blame.

    3. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Yeah the western writers pretty much just interprit what Sonic Team gives them.

       

  15. Will English Mewtwo ever break the "asshole supervillain hellbent on destroying the world" stigma or nah

  16. Can I buy all of StarLink's content digitally? Like buy a physical cartridge but then get everything else digital? Cause I can get the physical cart for $44 AU second hand and that sounds way better than dropping $170 for the game + content on the eShop

    1. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Yes, you can. Aside from a couple store exclusive ships and one rare character, everything else is available digitally.

  17. It took a while but waiting really paid off! Snagged an auction for both Hotel Dusk and Last Window for $59 today. I already have Hotel Dusk and just wanted Last Window but it's a pretty good deal anyway!

      I've always been curious about Hotel Dusk after reading the article in Nintendo Power on it years ago.

  18. Sonic Movie reveal seems to be happening tonight. Sonic Twitter just announced it.

  19. 7 Pokemon away from completing my Pokedex in Let's Go! Can't wait to shiny hunt!

  20. I've played S3K a million times over and until now I had no idea you could spin dash into the spiked enemies on the Death Egg Act 2 boss. I've been beating the boss the hard way all this time.

    1. Treacher

      Treacher

      That caught me by surprise after the first few times, too.

    2. Tracker_TD
  21. Bought Megaman 11! I've never played a Megaman game before. But I liked the demo for 11. Can't wait to play.

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      It's definitely great, for sure!

      If you really have never played a Mega Man game before, please choose one of the easier difficulties. Mega Man is a difficult game, and the lower difficulties will make it much more bearable for you.

    2. Tangled Jack

      Tangled Jack

      I'm gonna play it after I'm done checking the routine! It definitely looks great, I love Mega Man.

  22. Ready for Nintendo Switch Online! Is anyone else buying the 1 year sub right away? I'm not even going to bother with the free trial. lol

    1. Tails spin
    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      I actually do plan to within the next few weeks/ months, but only because of the "I have to" aspect. I'll be frowning the whole time i sign up though. gonna frown real hard. i hope nintento feels it

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      Lol I envy your excitement and optimism for that thing

      The Deleter

      Gonna try the free trial first, then figure out the family plan with my family later on. Paying less than a tenner for an entire year is a plus for me, but I gotta say, if they didn't offer this as an option, there'd be riots around these parts, lmao

    6. Winter Spirit Ultima

      Winter Spirit Ultima

      @Ryannumber1gamer: why am I imagining the dogsong music with that gif

  23. I'm watching Independence Day and just amazed at how much content Sega borrowed for Shadow the Hedgehog.

    1. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      ...

      giphy.gif

      Suddenly Shadow's story went from a 3/10 to a Damn/10


      The antihero protagonist

      The heavy focus on guns

      The alien invasion, president assassination mission, and vehicles in the levels

      The unnecissary swearing

      The cheesy one liners

      It all makes sense now
       

      It's all inspired by early 2000's American action blockbuster movies, and Sonic Team's take/tribute to the direction like Adventure was to Indiana Jones, Adventure 2 to military action anime, and Heroes to Saturday morning cartoons

      That's amazing

  24. As someone who normally loves Sonic Spin-offs I find it hard to be excited for Team Sonic Racing. There is just nothing appealing here and the writing of the characters is as terrible as ever. I'm also sick of Kart racing that isn't Mario Kart. Wish we could get another Riders game.

    1. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      Tfw you realize they could’ve just made a new Riders instead.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Well, we got three Riders games that all sucked. Now we're on our third Sumo-made racer that still looks better than all the Riders games from SEGA even though it looks worse than the previous two in the series.

      Don't miss Riders at all. It was more original, but was never made well at all.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      It's the franchise's newly found blandness seeping into what are suppose to be the fun, crazier titles. There's a severe lack of effort going into every category here.

      The Riders games might not have been that good (I'll argue the first and ZG but certainly not FR), but at least they had life to them. I don't get that at all from TSR and it's worse off for it.

    4. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      I dunno, I think Riders 1 was pretty good for what it was. Sure, it had somewhat steep learning curve compared to other arcade racing games with drifting, turbulence (though that one was a bit too hard to control) and fuel management, but it still was more fun and engaging than w/e previous racing games were.

      I do agree that the later sequels were either pretty boring (Zero Gravity) or just outright marred by the control scheme (Free Riders) and I wouldn't mind another shot at Riders with the polish Sumo Digital have (or, well, had).
