    Dizcrybe got a reaction from KnuxDLX in Unpopular Gaming Opinions!   
    I find Pokemon to be boring and tedious. Maybe because I wasn't playing the same the way I was "supposed" to, but I couldn't get into it at all. I don't even remember what it was I played, only that it was on the GBA (which totally narrows it down, right?).
     
    On a related note, I dislike random encounters in RPGs. I much prefer when I can ignore enemies when I want to ala Paper Mario. Being forced into a battle = no good.
     
    On a semi-related note, I like Super Paper Mario. Sure it's not as good as Thousand Year Door, but I like how it's more of a platformer than the other games (as a genre, I prefer platformers as a whole anyway).

    Honestly I don't think Mania and Classic Forces' music are comparable, because in the first place, Mania isn't even trying to replicate the Genesis sound. The soundtrack is much more in the spirit of Sonic CD than anything.

    You're assuming enough people would be able to afford said products now that they'd be much more expensive. Kinda throws a monkey wrench in the whole thing if no one can even buy your goods.

    ¿Por qué no los dos? We can curb bullying and call for tighter gun control. I don't know why conservatives seem to think we can only do one thing at a time.
    Also if you're so concerned about bullying how about you do something about those people that sent death threats to the Parkland survivors?

    My main beef with this is it’s almost blatantly victim blaming(ignoring that adults bully too hey what do ya know), and ignores that the killer in question WASNT bullied but the bully. There’s no evidence to suggest the former but plenty to support he was a bigoted asshole that beated women and wanted minorities killed. as well as this, it also singles out those loner children or kids feeling like they don’t fit in, and makes them feel only approached out of fear that they’ll become killers and not approached because of themselves being who they are.

    Not really, I'd say.
    The GOP establishment have a nasty tendency to only like free speech when it's dominant groups (and their minority allies) that are using it.
    Black Lives Matter disrupting traffic. Transgender people making a strong stand on pronoun usage. Antifa showing up to counterprotest white nationalist rallies. Women's Marches to call for closure of the wage gap and stronger investigation of sex crime.
    What a surprise it is the conservative outlets that are the first to deem all these "overreacting" or "unnecessary" or "violent" or "disruptive" or something else, but when Richard Spencer or NRA people or the Klan meet, it's "the beauty of American democracy."

    Trump calls us thugs, and wants a police state, supports search and frisking, something proportionally used against blacks, and also has a administrative team full of people with racial biases, and supports many gop members that are straight up racist. The guy pardoned a racist sheriff. He’s also silent on black issues, unless it’s a black athlete using their rights to speak up about injustices or their shit president. He called the white supremisists that marched “Good people” and blamed both sides equally.
    On top of all that there’s the incarceration rate of blacks being disproportionately higher than any other race, with us getting longer sentences for the same crime a white man may do, and if you think that’s not institutional racism and we simply are more crime driven, lol.
    Seriously there are more blacks like us tired of how things are, than ones like you that don’t seem to see the problems.

    Maybe that's because it wasn't fixed, although Russia did conduct an alarmingly successful misinformation & propaganda campaign.
    The economy is better under Trump because it has been improving steadily for years, thanks in large part to the Obama administration's efforts, and despite all of the GOP's ongoing efforts to undermine Obama at all costs. This isn't something that can credibly be laid in Trump's lap, just the same as the economic woes of '09 couldn't be laid in Obama's lap, because the impacts of economic policies are long-term and felt years down the road. Trump's economy began only in the last couple of months, but even then it's still riding Obama's wave. We won't start feeling the Trump Effect until closer to the next general election.
    You mean like this?
     
    Ordered the CIA & NSA to conduct operations against Russia for their interference in the election. Imposed the near-unanimously Congressionally-approved sanctions on Russia. Not threatened nuclear war with anybody. Not hired unqualified people with clear conflicts of interest to lead departments that they clearly have no interest in running properly. Not stripped the State Department to the bone. Gave a damn about the environment instead of corporate profit margins. Provided meaningful aid to Puerto Rico and not allowed it to suffer near so long as it has. Not started a new Gilded Age with that damnable tax reform bill. Kept the country in the Paris Climate Accords. Kept the country in the TPP. Perhaps she might have brought about retraining & economic revitalization schemes for the Rust Belt, too. She knows coal mining ain't coming back, and that it's pointless to go against the free market on this one. Perhaps she was... uncomfortable with Russia riding roughshod over the west in Syria. Now there are private mercenary groups run by a Russian oligarch fighting in the region - a large number of whom were apparently mowed down, possibly by US fire, in recent weeks.
    She wanted a No Fly Zone imposed. Russia didn't. More than likely the impasse would've resulted in talks of some kind. Clinton is more than smart enough to not drag the country into Nuclear Armageddon.
    As one of the two primary candidates, representing the values and world views of more Americans than voted for Trump, she is entitled to have her say, and to air her views. Several factors resulted in her loss - decades of Republican propaganda, Russia's campaign of division and misinformation, and, most importantly, the Comey letter. Whether she believes that or not is frankly immaterial, whether she holds herself accountable doesn't matter any more, because she lost and is a private citizen. The DNC stuff was pretty shady, and needs to be ended well before further Russian, Chinese etc hacks discredit it again. Hillary would've made sure we were much less fucked, by standing up to Russia, not initiating a trade war with China, etc.
    You say this as if they are the only two opportunistic politicians in the country.
    I don't understand why you hold this view. What would she have damaged, really? I can't think of anything.

    @shdowhunt60 I can’t tell if you’re trying to convince us, or convince yourself that what you said is the truth.
    Seriously, every bloody time I see someone claim that Hillary is worse than Trump, how “EEEEVIL Killary Clinton is and how she deserves to be locked up” with only questionable evidence or outright lies being cited as proof, it makes me think more and more that you just don’t want to admit that you got suckered into voting for a narcissistic con artist who’s essentially sold his soul to the Russian Devil Putin, AND who’s arguably worse in every aspect compared to ANYTHING the Clintons could ever do that this point. So instead of admitting as such, you keep on throwing around falsehoods and hoping the Clintons will slip up somehow, JUST so you can point fingers and claim how much better you are by comparison and avoid any meaningful insight about what a complete witless PAWN you really are to your beloved Trump and the wannabe dictator GOP party.

    You mean he’s taking credit for the result of Obama’s term. 
     
    How is more of the same worse/scarier than actually fucking over many of the communities within America, disrespecting Americans and well respected figures, blatant bias’s ranging from racist to sexist, the precedent and fire he burns in a side of the country we’d rather not wanna see with a voice as loud as they seem to have now, and reversing policies enacted by the previous guy that actually helped more than harmed? If trump and what he intended/has done doesn’t scare you but a hypothetical Hilary presidency does, I’m dumbfounded.(looking at both of their “agendas” only furthers my bafflement to your comment here tbh, did you see his campaign race and what it was built on alone?)
    I mean I said this before a while back, but as a gay black man, why should I see Hilary as a scarier threat to me and the groups I associate myself with vs trump and his corrupted administration full of racists and people that openly want me to have less rights and see me as a threat because of my skin color? And even if you’re white, straight, privileged, etc. there are many reasons Trump in office is a bigger concern and fear than a hypothetical scenario that has no proof to be as bad or worse than what’s going on now.

    Like em, hate em, however you feel about the Adventure games we have to admit that there's a little clunk that comes from approaching them from today. It's fine. It happens to the best of games. Let's humor the idea that we get to make another game in this style or remake an old one from the ground up, though: How do you shed the fat? 
    The thing about the Adventure games is that they were deadset on making the characters feel powerful, so instead of trying to pigeonhole their abilities into one type of level design and let either Knuckles walk all over Sonic's levels or nerf him into the ground, everyone gets goals and levels that suit their abilities.Tails's flight meant he could move through a 3D space faster than Sonic could ever really hope to so he gets a racing gimmick and more stuff to do in the air. Knuckles's kit is built for exploring more than a linear platforming challenge so he gets to hunt emeralds, Gamma is one of Robotnik's ultimate badniks so you play an extremely mobile, walking artillery etc. I'd want to keep that in mind going forward.

    Treasure Hunting is kind of the reason I made this topic. I think it would be best if instead of dropping into the level with 3 random emeralds hidden, all of them should be hidden in the level when you drop in. The player can find a certain and be allowed to move on when they do. They can return to find the rest at any time. I notice Knuckles's levels end up feeling like a lot of empty space because there's a bunch of hiding spots but only 3 of them ever get used. This, along with a radar change, should make the player feel more like they're always doing something that's pushing them toward the goal and the levels feel like they're worth exploring every nook and cranny of.
    I think they should scrap the radar altogether and give Knuckles a "pulse" he can use with a button command that lets him know if any are nearby. Newcomers may spam it , but I imagine the less you use it the better your score would be by the end, just like the hints in SA2.

    The levels should be about as big but have less empty space. You have to tread a fine line between it being fun to navigate without it being too much of a pain going back  and forth if you need to.
    The Speed stages have by far the most discussion about them so I'm not sure how much I even need to add. I think combining elements from SA1 and 2 would be for the best. Sa1 has more open ended levels that let you manipulate the physics to go faster and do skips if you really want, but SA2 has more level gimmicks and interaction for you to work with. Ideally you'd mix between the two, leaning more toward SA1 a lot of the time, but with more story significant sections being remeniscint of SA2''s set-pieces, like the missiles.

    The Mech Stages I'm kind of drawing a blank on why they should be included in a Sonic game in the first place. If you were to tweak them I'd make it so you're controlling a more flexible character so you're still doing "Sonicy" things. Not having an agile character to play with just feels wrong in this series.

    Hubworlds are interesting in that I think you could make a solid case that they aren't needed per say. Not in the sense that hubs are interfering with the precious classic progression system and we shouldn't have them, but I think the hubs and the levels could really be one and the same with few issues. Less intense areas in levels could have NPCs and players could ignore them if they want.  Think each level having a "town" in unleashed but without the arbitrary barrier between the towns and the levels.
     
    These were just ideas I was kicking around. What do you all think? Do you have any ideas for tweaked gameplay styles? Stuff I didn't talk about like mini games or the chao system?
