    I guess to start on my interests, I like games, sonic (obviously) and I like to read manga/watch anime, draw, sometimes lift weights (hey its fun if you make it fun), and go outside for walks on a nice day.

    I am a pretty simple guy with not much going on in my life at the moment, I am generally pretty nice to people that I meet and if anyone needs any help, while I'm probably not the best guy to come too since im pretty shy and a very bad motivational speaker, I will try and help people out if I can even if I sometimes give them the wrong impression.

    (probably put more on this later, can't really think of anything else right now :P)

    Nintendo Direct Megathread

    I said it in the status' but i'll say it here too, the devs are most likely going to get it to consoles later, just not right now. I sincerely doubt they'd just leave console owners hanging in the cold like that when they took the time out to port them and it would be pretty bad especially since they just announced the switch version.
  2. So question for the artists here. What do you do to help practice your skills (whether it be with a computer program like illustrator or hand drawn art) when you can't think of anything to actually draw? I want to do more things with illustrator but I have a real hard time actually thinking of something that I can do.

    1. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      I just draw

      uh

      Sonic

      It's not handy but at least I can draw Sonic now

      ...Sonic and nothing else 

    2. TCB

      TCB

      Well I don't draw digitally, so for me I usually drop by places like Pinterest to brew some ideas up. I also brainstorm ideas and filter out what seems plausible to attempt at my skill level (which isn't saying much)

    3. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      Huh. You know I never did get the hang of drawing sonic (I always messed up with the last few spines), think I might try that.

    4. TCB

      TCB

      Remember when tracker drew miku trash 

      Pepperidge Farm remembers

    5. MightyRay

      MightyRay

      I draw lots of different odd ball stuff. Cartoons, anime, realistic space marines.

    6. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      As someone who is no good at doodling or sketching really, I only draw when I have something I absolutely desire to draw and my lack of confidence and impatience isn't getting the better me. As for what I do to practice, every time I decide to draw I create new techniques for myself to tryout to keep it interesting and from feeling repetitive and that is something you can do regardless of your skill level and drawing motivation. Find a technique you want to try out and play around with it until inspiration does strike.

    7. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      Ahem TCB

      I still draw Miku trash

      ...it just doesn’t go on my Twitter

      I don't really "practice"; I draw if I have an idea I think I'm capable of drawing, simple.

      Probably not the best way of going about things, but it's gotten me this far.

    10. Ferno

      Ferno

      gotta build up image folders of cool or inspiring things, as well as folders of images featuring things you know you'll need to work on and then tell yourself that you'll actualy go through those folders at some point

      Some people like to doodle which is basically drawing without thinking too hard about anything. I've never been good at doing that though. I usually need an inspiration that motivate me to be creative, whether it be anime, manga, games, music...or whatever your into.

    12. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      Thanks for the suggestions guys.

      @RosaRosaRosalina I don't know, I guess just something to help improve myself since I want to build myself up for a graphic design job at some point. Admittedly i'm probably overthinking this though and I really should just do SOMETHING at least.

  3. If nintendo actually did this I think I would take back 70% of the bad things i've said about them over the past few years.

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Had Nintendo had done even a quarter of what their competitors do with their gamepass than the media wouldn't be as quick to look down on them.

  4. Really excited to play sonic islands tomorrow. Hopefully Azoo comes back and gives us a rundown on the development of it or we just get developer stream with him and the crew.

    1. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      Azoo is working on that? no way

    2. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      If you're after dev updates you should follow the actual developer of it, Steve - afaik Azoo is in more of an advisory role than anything

      Azoo is doing level design/textures

      Oh right, awesome to hear

    5. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Yeah, was fun playing around with the first demo last year.

      Looking forward to playing the latest version.

    6. Wraith

      Wraith

      Steve is still doing the vast majority of the heavy lifting though and shows the game off a little every once in a while so you should still follow him

      The submission deadline's tomorrow, but the actual event starts on the 25th. That's probably when they're gonna open up all the "booths" for downloads iirc

    8. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      Ah okay, didn't know about steve, i'm really liking the look of that test stage too :)

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Probably has something to do with a majority of the unique cast members from the first game getting shafted for clones of characters that were already there with relatively few new additions. While we did get cool choices like Nights and the Sega Ages character, we lost a lot more to get them. It doesn't really help that the vehicle choices sort of took a hit too but that was always going to happen with how complex the transform gimmick is.
  6. The work being put into this engine is really something else, I especially love all the little touches to animation that this guy is putting in.

    1. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      The level of polish being put into it is worth it existing on it's own. Even if the gameplay never goes the extra mile itself, the small touches, personality, and slickness to it all makes it look like it just feels cool to play. Could honestly be sold as a AAA engine if they ironed it out around whatever levels they designed for it, imo

      I'm a little eh that they're keeping Sonic's falling animation, though. I've never liked that animation from Unwiished, it just makes Sonic look like a klutz, lmao

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      I'm not too giddy about how you instantly uncurl from a spindash, unless that can be done intentionally and can still roll normally.

      Well I guess that's how it goes when your engine focuses on recreating the boost gameplay, let alone a less automated one. 

  7. It's almost like super smash flash 2 is picking up the pieces that ultimate is leaving behind

     

    1. Depression Kong

      Depression Kong

      You say that like Rayman was deconfirmed and has absolutely 0 chance of ever getting in.

    2. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Believe in the Rayman

      He can do it

    3. Depression Kong

      Depression Kong

      I'd be more surprised if he couldn't do it, really.

    4. JaidynReiman

      JaidynReiman

      But... Ultimate's roster isn't finished yet, and there's still a chance of DLC. So this really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If this was talking about Waluigi that'd be a different story, but Rayman is still totally possible for Ultimate.

    5. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      I'm mostly just trying to be funny. I know the roster isn't finished yet although I do still find it pretty cool and a little funny that all of these different characters are coming to every other smash game right now.

      That said, i'm still not entirely sold on the possibility of rayman in ultimate.

    6. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      If Rayman is in Ultimate, this might prompt Nintendo to take action on this game as to avoid there being two competing Raymans.

       

      Although, this will likely already give away the suprise of Rayman in Ultimate, so it's more likely they won't take the bait.

    7. Depression Kong

      Depression Kong

      They didn't seem to peeved about Flash 2 having Mega Man.

      Although Mega Man was around in Flash 2 as early as 2009, when Brawl was still the talk of the town and Smash 4 wasn't even a thought, so maybe that's not the best example.

    8. Jango

      Rayman. Crash. Spyro. Klonoa. Scrooge.

      Do it, Sakurai. I'll buy a Switch just for it.

    I have a request for you. Boot up transformed whenever you get a chance too. Do a race in the game (whether it be online or offline, doesn't matter) on either expert or hard. When you do and when you get hit by an item, I never want you to say this again because it is the most blatant lie i've ever heard in an argument against this game because unless you hit a boost pad or get boosted by someone tailing behind you, you will always lose position when you get hit by an item unless your far enough off from the pack (and even if you are, they still catch up real quick) no matter what the circumstance. Stopping on a dime from item hits is them trying to over correct on something that wasn't even an issue in the first place and it just seems silly to defend it.
  9. I guess shovel knight gets to be playable in a smash game after all.

  10. While I can understand the want to nerf bayo because of her apparent overpowered-ness I kind of don't want them to if only because I find here mechanics really interesting being a platinum character in a cast full of relatively simple characters. Honestly, i'd rather they keep her the same and just give everybody else something that makes them more fun to use in higher levels of play, like say mario being able to extend combos with cancellable fire ball tech (ex. if you time it just right after an attack finishes you can use a fireball to keep someone stunned and then proceed into another action but the timing gets tighter as you keep doing it and the same move does not work twice in a row) or sonic being able to cancel spindashes into tilts and smashes to mindgame people.

    I guess if you were to implement all this stuff smash would probably be more complex than a lot of people are willing to take but its a thought anyway.

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      The thing about giving everyone Bayonetta combos is that it doesn't solve the problem of Bayonetta combos being unfun to deal with. People like Smash because of how based it is in neutral, movement and generally having a lot of control over your character. All that is undercut by Bayonetta being able to carry you off the screen at 0%

    2. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      I don't play Smash games or ever plan to... But I don't believe in balancing all characters to be on a equal playing field... That's kinda lame to me. That's why on games like Pokemon you have multiple tier lists in competitive playing where the higher power level characters can't be used in the lower tier competitive battles which is the better way to balance characters instead of making them all basically the same in power level...

      But I will say that it does depend on how OVERPOWERED a character is compared to all others. Little bit of of power re-balancing is fine if no other characters can compete at all.

    3. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      @Lord-Dreamerz I wasn't saying that everyone should be equal but moreso that everyone should be brought up a bit in terms of complexity to shift the balances. I wholeheartedly agree that an overall balanced game can be pretty dang boring but having interesting characters to mess around with can make even low tiers stand out when used in the right hands.

    4. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      I was making a overall statement of my opinion on the subject of nerfing characters more then I was replying directly to your post. Excuse me for the confusion.

    We kinda knew about all of these though except for the one where you bump into a teammate to give them a boost after they've been hit.
  12. Don't listen to this while your on a night drive.

  13. Hey, they implemented the chargable smash thing after all along with their own all-star mode. Sweet!

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    On a map that has a pulled out camera it can be a bit hard to make it out (and other times even be invisible unless your paying attention to it) so I can see why it would still trip some people up.

    Wow, all of this looks so good man, I can't wait to try it all.
