  1. Hi.

    So...what's been going on?

    1. Ferno



    2. goku262002


      oof yeah, 'Rona has been a bitch on my end, even caught it myself. I'm okay though, mild strain.

    3. Teoskaven


      What hasn't been going on recently?

    4. goku262002


      Wouldn't know tbh, haven't been here in well over a year now. came by today to check if the Sonic Statue topic got updated with the recent news. 

  2. Came back as soon as I saw what was trending on Twitter.

    God damn, I was wishing he was found safe and that rumor wasn't true.

  3. At work. Can't watch it. How fucking terrible is it?

    1. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Well, I dislike everything except Ben Schwartz's voice for Sonic and I'm of the mindset that Sonic looks 1000x worse than any of the leaks implied he would. But that's just me. There are plenty of ambivalent reactions to it so far and the typically defenders appear to be in love with what they are seeing so...

    2. TheOcelot


      Sonic's design is rubbish. Carrey's design is better-ish. He sounds like Ace Ventura.

    3. Diogenes


      somehow sonic looks even worse

    4. Kuzu


      It's as mediocre as you can expect from this series.

    5. Lord-Dreamerz


      Hide your family. Hide your friends. Hide your pets... Hide yo chili-dogs! Because Sawnik The Manhog is coming for you!

    6. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      It's a cartoon character brought into a real world setting from a distributor that doesn't give a damn. You know exactly how this works @goku262002

    7. Solister


      In a scale of terribleness I would say 9/10.

  4. Sorry I haven't been that active guys, its been a tough week hell its been a tough few months. the 27th and 28th were the anniversary days of the accident so I've been having a rough few days but I'm okay, still feels weird I could've died 3 months ago.

    Still a mental climb back to normal but I'm getting there slowly. I still feel like allot of the things I used to do regularly are lapsing or I'm just not motivated like I used to like coming here and Retro, playing video games, checking and keeping up on gaming news etc. etc.

    Between fighting off the shit going on in my own head and making sure everyone from the accident is doing okay and having somewhat of a social life now, I feel like I shelved allot of things now and I feel bad cause those aspects were a big part of me before this.

    I feel like something broke and it's taking a while to repair itself. but I guess that's normal right?

    1. Failinhearts


      It may take a while, but you'll get there. But by bit. Just keep hanging on, you're doing great!

    2. goku262002


      @Failinhearts - Thank you I appreciate it.

    3. Zaysho


      You don't have anything to apologize for, man. It's good you're getting out and taking your mind off of things that way. I'm sure you'll reach a sense of normalcy where you'll want to go back to your hobbies as things get easier.

    4. goku262002


      @Zaysho - I hope so dude, cause I see allot of positives being done but I don't want to lose any other aspects of myself at the same time, I'm scared that the accident is warping parts of me I don't want warped. I'm seeing it in other people and it concerns me.

    5. Sean


      Glad to hear you've been able to keep yourself busy with stuff.

    6. Kiah


      It’s okay as you don’t have anything to apologize for. If anything I should be apologizing to you as I’ve meant to check on you but never got around to it. Me pulling a 180 with my own activity on SSMB as well as my irl drama is definitely a factor in it all but it’s not a good excuse to check on a friend that’s been through so much. I’m sorry. 

      It is completely and unfortunately normal to be “emotionally triggered” by things such as dates marking anniversaries of even bad things. 

      You have to remember you went through something that’s both extremely tragic and traumatic. It’s definitely going to take some time to get a sense of normalcy and it’s nothing you can rush or force. As for the aspect thing I’m going to keep it real with you that things like this tend to be life-changing for better or for worse. Only time will tell if these warps you’re referring to are temporary or not. Hopefully it’s nothing positive that ends up getting lost here.

      In the meantime focus on taking care of yourself mentally, physically and emotionally. That’s really good and commendable that you’re busy checking up on your friends. Please keep that up as helping others when you are going through things is one of the best things you can do as not only are you doing good for others you’re taking your mind off your own problems even if it is temporarily. 

      In due time the sense of normalcy will return as well as engaging in your interests like you did previously. Just continue to take it one day at a time and don’t let any setbacks discourage you and hold you back. Also remember you have me and others here that are here for you and are rooting for you to get through this.

    7. goku262002


      @Kiah - Thank you soo much for the kind words and advice, I'm soo glad you're still around to help people and even now still helping me.

      Feels like a millennia ago when I went to you weekly for advice when I was younger and now you're still helping me, You've always been a guiding shoulder in my life and I'm glad to have you now still giving me advice more then ever.

      you have no idea how it really helps hearing from you. thank you for everything!

      @Sean - I'm trying man, its been helping. but I know I should feel like I should be tackling some of the problems I'm facing like the nightmares that come in and out. everything now is starting to settle so I feel like maybe now that's the time to.

    8. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      I wanted to say something positive and encouraging but at this point it would just be a weak echo at best of what @Kiah said. Still, while I can't word anything as eloquently as what she did I feel the same.

      For now though I'll just continue to wish you well and offer my ear along with the rest of the collective SSMB ear if you need to talk. And of course, if you just want to take a few minutes to distract yourself to recharge we're always glad to share our time with you.

    9. goku262002


      @Sonic Fan J - Thank you for your kind words as well, I'm glad to know I can fall back on SSMB whenever I need it.

  5. So here's an odd thing that cropped up the other day, Rafa Knight the former official renderer of the Sonic Archie Comics is having some issues with SEGA.

    If you look at her other tweets and replies it looks like she was burned by SEGA pretty bad, poor girl I really did like her work on the Archie Comics. I was wondering where she disappeared to and suddenly she was replaced by NibocRock.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      When I give SEGA any crap, I tend not to mean it.


      But here I feel in the right to call them out for being complete assholes for no reason and rejecting the support of one who's incredibly eager to still work with them, all while keeping in the dark on top of that bullshit. 

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      The thing is, from what I understand, they let her go because she exhibited some very unprofessional, not to mention just generally shitty behaviour on her public Discord server.

      At least that’s what many people are assuming to be the reason. If there was indeed a different reason, or even no reason at all on Sega’s part, I’m not too bent out of shape over it.

      I believe she should still be paid for that IDW cover, but she won’t be working for them again any time soon.

  6. Hi guys. Been a few weeks now I'm starting back into my normal routine again, so you'll be seeing me around more. I'm coping okay, funeral was a couple saturdays ago, since then We've been just trying to get back to our normal lives. things still feel off though but I guess it's gonna feel like that for awhile though. so long as I have the people I know and love around me I think I'll be okay.

    It's good to be back.

    1. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Welcome back.
      It's good to see that you're finding yourself getting back into your regular routines even if things don't quite feel right yet. Chances are though it's not even that it'll ever feel right, but that your definition of normal will change and you'll grow used to that. Of course though as you say, that will take time, but as it's no race there isn't anything wrong with that. Meanwhile, I know everyone here at SSMB has your back if you need us so there's always that. But seriously, welcome back.

    2. Failinhearts


      I'm glad you're taking things one step at a time, and coping the best you can.

      That's a good outlook to have, always reminding yourself of the special people you still have. Keep going, dude.

    3. Sean


      Shit man. I haven't been on SSMB much lately so I'm only now catching up on what happened. I'm glad you're okay but I'm deeply sorry for your loss. Keep in touch.

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I was wondering where you went. But damn I'm sorry for your loss.

      Its good to see you again though. Just keep your chin up.

    5. goku262002


      Thank you @Sean & @Crow the BOOLET, it's good to hear from you guys again. I'll do my best to keep my spirits high.

    6. Kiah


      Welcome back goku. Glad to see you around here again and I’m even more glad you are doing okay. Major props to you for the positive outlook and keeping in mind the positive; it’s very encouraging and definitely an example to follow. 

      It’s good that you are getting back into a regular routine but don’t be alarmed or discouraged by any setbacks as this is something severely tragic that you went through and it’s definitely going to take some time to recover. Just remember that I and others are here for you for those moments and anything else.

      Please keep your head up and again welcome back 🙂

  7. Just wanted to check in. let you all know I'm doing okay.

    Can't say I'm the best. Physically the injuries I suffered from the accident are more or less gone just a few bruises remain I'll be back to 99% in another day or so (minus my wrist which is gonna take a while) . mentally though I'm still about as composed as mashed potatoes but it's getting better, its all pretty much mental from this point on. doesn't help theirs drama around all this grief too that I have to deal with as well. but I got a good set of people who aren't causing any problems and were all looking out for eachother.

    The funeral is this saturday so I'm trying to focus on that. I don't think i'll be mentally equipped to handle anything else so I won't be back for another week or so.

    So yeah, I'm here. alive still. hello.

    1. Failinhearts


      Just keep living on, dude. Take as long as you need to recover mentally as well as whatever remains physically.

      Stay strong.

    2. Milo


      Glad to hear you're doing alright. Take as long as you need to recuperate.

    3. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Just remember that if you need us they're are plenty of us here on SSMB who will be glad to lend you an ear and do what we can to help you through this hard time. Some of us are probably better equipped than others but I hope our good will and intentions get to you regardless. I can't even imagine what you're going through right now but hearing that you are able to focus on anything right now is a good thing in it's own regard and I just hope that you are able to use the funeral to remember all of the good times and to cherish those memories rather than let them eat you up from the inside. For now though, try to take things one step at a time and remember that if you need any extra support that we're here for you.

    4. goku262002


      @Sonic Fan J - thank you. I've been with SSMB for a very long time now I know were all a botherhood here that has been through allot so I'm glad I have somewhere to turn to when I really need to vent this stuff out. that's why I feel safe telling you guys this and sharing a personal part of myself. it's 1 of the few communities left I still hang out at and trust.

      I'll be okay guys, I'm not going to do anything stupid but I got allot of mental hurdles to cross before I ever consider myself normal again, or a new normal at least.

    5. Failinhearts


      Just take those hurdles one jump at a time. That's all we ask.

      Take care of yourself.

    6. TheOcelot


      Take care, dude. Stay strong.

    7. TCB


      Good to know physically you're healing. Psychological and mentally will be harder, but keep living your life day by day and feel blessed you're still here. 

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Stay strong, dude. I'm sorry you've had to go through all this.

      Stay strong, dude. I'm sorry you've had to go through all this.

    9. Maxtiis


      I'll be sure to send some prayers towards you and your friends man. I know I don't know you the same way the others around here do, but I hope it can count for something.

    10. goku262002


      @Maxtiis - thanks man. if you need any names of me or the family just DM me.

    11. E-122-Psi


      It's good to know you're feeling better physically though I can understand your disposition on it mentality. Just take things gently and slowly.

    12. Kiah


      Thanks for checking in as I was thinking about you and was wondering how you were doing amid everything. I’m glad you’re feeling better and healing physically and I’m very sorry that isn’t the case mentally although that’s expected considering everything unfortunately. That’s going to take some time and it very well might take a lot of it. You have to take it one day at a time. 

      Please take all the time you need but if you need me for anything you know how to reach me and please don’t hesitate. You know I and your SSMB family is here for you. Remember there is no such thing as too much support so feel free to take advantage of what you have here as well as from your friends and family outside of SSMB. Especially if you feel like you aren’t progressing or even regressing in the healing part as setbacks are normal when removing from trauma and tragedy unfortunately so please don’t hesitate to take advantage of all the support offered to you.

      Stay strong and please take care of yourself.

    13. goku262002


      Thank you @Kiah for all your love and support, it really means allot to me knowing I can still turn to you and the rest of SSMB if I need to.

  8. Hi everyone, didn't really want to make a formal thread about this.

    Been recovering from a car accident.

    My friend died but the 4 of us who were in the SUV survived.

    I'm okay, just sore and scratched up but my mind isn't doing too well.

    after today I won't be around for a bit, probably a week or so. need time to heal. sorry guys, love you all.

    life's short please cherish the people around you.

    1. TCB


      Damn I don't know what to even say...except you shouldnt be sorry at all. Look, your health is far more important right now. For real; condolences to your friend and a speedy recovery for not just you but the other survivors. 

    2. Zaysho


      Sorry to hear about that, man. Please take care of yourself.

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Take as much time as you need, and sorry about the loss of your friend.

    4. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Holy crap, man. That's absolutely no way to start off the new year. And that's a terrible way for you and your friends to be on the news as well. I am deeply sorry for your lost, and will prey that you and your other friends don''t have to go through such a big accident again.

    5. Milo


      Glad to hear you're safe, and I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend.

    6. Dr. Detective Mike

      Dr. Detective Mike

      I've been in a car crash before. It's some scary shit. Don't apologize for needing to recover from it. Just take care of yourself.

    7. Kiah


      I am so sorry to hear about the accident and deeply sorry about the loss of your friend. I can’t possibly imagine what you are going through right now. You have absolutely nothing to apologize for. Take all the time you need to take care of yourself and heal. 

      You are so right about life being short and to cherish those around you. 

      I hope you will recover physically and emotionally as much as possible and if there is anything we can do please don’t hesitate to let us know. Our thoughts are with you. Again I am so sorry. 

    8. goku262002


      Thank you all and thank you @Kiah , you've helped me allot in the past and I appreciate you looking out for me.

      Physically I'll be fine, thank god for that. theirs other with fractures in their backs and broken collar bones I have no fucking clue how I got out of it with bumps and bruises. Mentally and emotionally though I'm a mess.

      My job and the hospital offered counseling, I asked friends and family to let me know if I should consider it if I can't realize it myself. but for now helping the others who were with me and my friend's family means more to me.
    9. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Woah... I can't imagine how that must feel. I'm terribly sorry you're having to go through this. Hang in there. You've got our support. 

    10. Kiah


      You are very welcome, @goku262002

      Thank goodness you came out of that physically with little harm done but unfortunately expect the mental and emotional scars to run deep as this being a traumatic incident is a severe understatement sadly.

      That said if you feel that the support from friends and family isn’t enough at any point in time as things can dramatically change later with how you are feeling mentally and emotionally so please don’t hesitate to take up those offers for counseling. There is no shame in it and there is no such thing as greed when seeking support. 

      I really hope you get through this okay as well as your friends and families. 

    11. E-122-Psi


      I find it perfectly understandable given the situations. You have my deepest sympathy and you should certainly take your time to heal from the situation until you are comfortable here again. 

  9. Oh god I just realized something....

    Is Sanic the HedgeMutantHumanThing getting a video game adaption like every other crappy video game kids movie does now a days?!

    Oh god who is going to do it if we do get one? Lets just get the Big Red Button team back together, really nail the coffin in this.

    1. Heckboy


      The movie design will be the only design for Sonic going forward. Modern Sonic is gone, make way for Postmodern Sonic.

    2. goku262002


      Pass, I'll wait on the postmodern contemporary Sonic era.

  10. So it seems that theirs this murmur that a few developers are going to create a Tumblr of their own. tracked it down and its called "Project Rescue Plan", sounds like a solid idea and I hope it pans out hopefully best case scenario it'll be like a NeoGAF to ResetERA situation.

    I'll just link the FAQ for now since theirs no site up yet:

    1. Ferno


      I've heard about this and in a way it sounds too good to be true, but I'm still curious and cautiously optimistic. Hopefully its legit and not some large-scale information/ content syphoning scheme taking advantage of all the frantic tumblr users right now, etc.

  11. I'm gonna sum up my feelings today.




    Yeah, that sums it up perfectly.

    Thanks SEGA.

  12. Watch this. This is really god damned amazing.

    1. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      Pearl's normal voice does NOT fit with the exaggerated visuals.

      Also no animated opening 0/10

    2. Milo


      @Rusty Spy Actually I think the contrast vocals/visuals further sells the effect.

  13. So theirs some TSR event going on right now? the japanese Sonic Channel account is blowing up my twitter feed.

    1. Dejimon11


      Yeah because it's the TGS 

    2. goku262002


      @Dejimon11 - cool, hopefully a release date will get announced and someone gives us details on what they are talking about.

    3. Dejimon11


      They just showed off market street aka spagonia 

  14. ...This makes my head hurt....

    1. goku262002


      Oh, and here's the kicker to all this.


    2. Sean


      I see these all the time in Korea. The idea is that you can buy a cup with ice, plus a sealed drink (usually in a plastic bag-like container) to pour it in. It's not as stupid as you might imagine since you can buy these in bulk and it's easier to lug them around when bringing them to, say, your workplace to share with other people.

    3. Rusty Spy
  15. This game is giving us everything we've ever wanted....

    .....This is the last Smash game isn't it?....

    1. Teoskaven


      Or at the very least the last one Sakurai will work on. Future games will probably be simple ports with minimal additions.

    2. Milo


      @Teoskaven Probably not direct ports, but I can envision a new director taking the reins and taking the series in a somewhat new direction

    3. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      It ain’t over til the Wah-Master gets his promotion.

  16. Hi guys,

    Just want to say thank you to whomever replied to me last week. still reading through them but you are all the best and I'm grateful to be in a community like SSMB. you guys made me cry seriously.

    I've been coping, along with you guys friends and family have been helping. I got his ashes back a day or so ago so at least he's home now. still bizarre to think he's gone and it's only been a week. I miss him dearly.

    Anyways, is a new Mania short is out? I guess I got some news to catch up on.

    1. altum_dolorem


      The new Mania short is Mighty fine, in fact you could say it's like a Ray of sunshine on a...…Metal Sonic?




    2. goku262002


      oh aren't you soooooo punny.

    3. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      A lot more than just the Mania short. You also have comic previews and solicits if you're interested, the reveal of Amy is Team Sonic racing, and the ever crazy debate around the movie just to name a few.

      Glad to see you back and seeing how the community has your back.

    4. Failinhearts


      Welcome back. Glad to hear of your recovery, as loss is something incredibly hard to deal with.

      Just stay strong, and sorry for your loss.

    5. goku262002


      Thanks guys. I'll stay strong.

      Yeah I have to dive back in the IDW topic. but I'm probably 100 or so pages behind at this point. has anymore TSR gameplay been shown since E3 or am I all caught up on that?

    6. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Just E3 gameplay that I'm aware of. As for the IDW thread if you're not concerned about arguments about Shadow's character between Shadow fans you can probably skim through a lot of what you missed if you haven't missed too much since issue 5.

    7. Kiah


      You're very welcome, goku. You know SSMB has your back and that's one thing I love about this community. 

      Glad that you are recovering. Remember that these things take time and it's okay to grieve no matter how much time passes.

      As for the IDW topic you might want to spare yourself the headaches. Seriously I don't go into that topic unless it's for moderator purposes so I honestly can't tell you what you missed let alone what's going on with the comics.

  17. Hi. haven't been around for a bit.

    My cat was sick the last few weeks and I had to put him down yesterday, I've had him for 18 years raised him ever since he was a newborn. he was my best friend, I don't know what I'm going to do now.

    He had final stage lymphoma, I thought it was just some blockage with his bowels but the bloodwork came back yesterday, I've been in a daze ever since.

    Probably gonna be in and out more then usual. I need rest I'll be fine but I'm soo mentally fucked up right now I can't deal with anything.

    1. Kiah


      Sorry to hear that goku. I’m sure those 18 years you had with him were good ones full of memories for you to always cherish. 

      Take all the time you need and take care of yourself. Hope you get through this okay. 

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile


      Your cat needed you, so it’s fine. At least he had a long life with you.

    3. Milo


      really sorry to hear about your cat, goku26.

      take as much time as possible to collect your thoughts and find some peace.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      Sorry to hear about this man, take as much time as you need to work through this.

    5. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Been there myself and still don't know what to say, but I'll echo everyone else; take all of the time that you need. Loss like this bites too deep to try and push yourself through it so let it soak in and grieve in your own way. But also celebrate those precious memories. That's just something you have to do lest your cherished memories become another source of pain every time every little thing reminds you of them. Wish you the best in this difficult time.

    6. Zaysho


      I am so sorry to hear that, man. Went through exactly that a couple years ago, it was hard. Hope you get through this alright.

    7. Strickerx5


      I'm sorry to hear this Goku. Wishing you the best.

    8. E-122-Psi


      Very sorry to hear about your cat. It's heartbreaking losing a pet.

    9. PaddyFancy


      That is tough. A sad coincidence because a very good neighbour of ours who we're very friendly with, their cat had a heart attack and had to be put down today aged 17. I'm sorry.

    10. goku262002


      Thank you all for your kind words.

  18. So what is a good resume building website or app? It's been a while for me since I have a stable job and all and a friend asked me to help him today with one.

    1. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I've used resumehero but I guess you have to be approved for that or something. Have you tried Resume.com?


    2. goku262002


      @Balding Spider - No never did, looks simple enough to use. so with ResumeHero you have to sign up?

    3. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I had to get approved via the administrator at my local job connection programs. I'm not really sure how others are supposed to get on board


    4. goku262002


      @Balding Spider - that's kind of dumb, why make the site even public then?

      you got anymore suggestions?

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Sure I'll post them later. Right now I have to go take care of some work.

    6. Balding Spider
  19. .............So an Xbox One Elite Controller?.........

      ...Yep, looks like it. Though the front of it looks more like a standard Xbone controller that the Elite one, thanks to the D-Pad.

      Still, same (not-so-)basic function, so... good for those who like 'Elite' controllers, I guess?


    Well, that's pretty cool. a controller for the disabled that actually looks awesome and works with custom accessories, even has it's own Nunchuck you can buy for it. $100 is a bit steep though but again, it's not for the normal everyday gamer.

    Works on Windows 10 too so PC players can use it.

      Ooo, I have a mate who's got cerebal palsy so this might be up his alley.

      My favorite thing is the way it lets you plug in your own devices into it, allowing you to adapt it to the player's comfort and ability, rather than forcing the player to adapt to it.  This not only makes it highly adaptive for a range of disabilities, but even serves a good purpose for modding and home brew technology, making way for new and interesting ways to play.  As the video says, it looks and functions like a  game peripheral, giving it both positive associations and a sense of utility rather than being seen as something negative or even morbid.  Very nice move on Microsoft's part.

      The best stuff for disabled people are stuff that looks like stuff other people might actually like to use. I won't lie, kudos for MS for making this.

  23. Can someone nab me the red ring sound effect from either generations, lost world, or forces PC?

    I'm having the hardest time finding it for some reason.

      I ran into that while google searching, too distorted and short. I need a raw soundbite from the PC version to work with.

  24. So, what is going on with Mania Adventures? I thought it was going to be week-to-week it's been 2 weeks now.
