    Dizcrybe got a reaction from Syntax Speedway in i really don't understand the praise for Sonic CD   
    Sonic CD has a kinda specific style of level design that, in terms of classic Sonic, I would argue is unique to that game; it places more emphasis on exploration than speed. Not to mention how big the levels themselves are (Quartz Quadrant comes to mind, though I haven't played the game in a while, so I may be misremembering). I guess a lot of people just liked that type of level design.
    Me, I like Sonic CD, but I've never been able to relate to the people calling it amazing and saying it's the best out of the classic games. I've had fun with it (more so with the 2011 remake), but for my money, it's nowhere near the caliber of S3&K. I find, though, that the praise isn't as universal, with more people saying they either dislike the game or don't think it's amazing like Classic fans tend to.
    Doesn't everybody?

    After a quick search:
    Like...dude seriously. I get that Democrats aren't perfect, and they've proven to have done some corrupt things themselves, but you've spent more time in this thread going after them for things that happened a year ago or more than the people that are actually in power and are currently in the process of screwing people over right now. While you're still complaining about something that happened almost a decade ago and didn't even happen the way you say it did under a president that isn't even in office anymore, along with constantly bringing up last year's primaries, I'm scared out of my mind that this GOP tax bill is going to destroy the country's economy and be a first step towards dismantling things like Social Security and Medicare.

    Dizcrybe got a reaction from SpongicX in Which "Adventure" like Sonic Game was the best?   
    Gotta give it to my boy SA1. I felt like that game gave you complete control of Sonic more often than not, and its level design makes the levels (Lost World and maybe Final Egg notwithstanding) great fun to go through. Plus it's probably the only 3D game where rolling matters. SA2's speed stages, by comparison, is a significant step backwards in almost every aspect. The control is far more slippery, and I find the levels more frustrating than fun. Pyramid Cave and maybe Final Rush are the exceptions.
    Unleashed is more streamlined, but is arguably even more slippery than SA2 when you're not boosting, and that's outside of Cool Edge.
    Advance 3 features Dimps' trademark "make you go fast and then punish you for it" level design, so that's out immediately.

    Speaking of which, he's also been sharing various anti-Muslim/Islam videos of such people committing horrible acts of violence. In at least one case, the perp, despite the tweet claiming him to be a Muslim migrant, was neither Muslim nor migrant, but born and raised in the Netherlands, where the video took place.

    You sound like a "liberal" in the same sense that Sargon thinks himself to be one. i.e., a neo-conservative reactionary that's too scared to publicly identify as conservative.
    One, name one good thing Trump has done for American workers. Cause he sure ain't bringing coal back. Two, since you think the left are sympathizers of terrorists, maybe you'd like to tell us your thoughts on the numerous acts of white terrorism in the US, including, but not limited to, multiple attacks on mosques and Islamic people. Two, perhaps you'd also like to cite evidence, as SSF1991 has, that the left lie just as much as the right or that Obama "escalated" the war?
    Also, one of the most notorious terrorists of the previous decade was killed under Obama's presidency. I guess that doesn't count as "anything" to you?
    Oh, and since you wanna talk "victimhood" let's talk about how a large part of the white nationalist/supremacist/neo-nazi narrative is that white people are under attack; that their livelihood is being threatened and their country being taken away from them. And all of these people? They voted for Trump. So if you wanna talk about victimhood, we should probably talk about this. After all, "both sides", right?

    Most of classic's music is actually pretty good, but I've noticed it's not really trying to sound "Sonic-y" so much as "garden-variety Sega Genesis soundtrack" and I dunno whether that help sit or hurts it.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/roy-moore-leads-democratic-challenger-in-poll-that-leans-toward-gop-voters/article/2641600
    A new poll finds 47% of Alabamans backing Moore and 40% backing Jones. 13% remain undecided.
    This would be concerning, but the poll's respondents are 62% Republican and 38% Democrat. That means a sizable minority of Republicans have decided to back Jones or are holding off on fully endorsing Moore.
    Of course, the privacy of the ballot box is everything. Those 13% could easily be mostly embarrassed Moore supporters.
    We'll know for sure on December 12th.
    Moore's odds have been helped by Trump coming out in his defense, as well. Given Trump's popularity in Alabama, it's likely to buoy the campaign.
    If you have a pre-existing condition, you can get insurance for the same rate as a healthy person, thanks to Obama.
    If you're young and working and/or in college, you can stay on your parents' insurance plan until age 26 now, thanks to Obama.
    If you're less than twice the poverty level, you can get Medicaid now in most states, thanks to Obama.
    If your state has legalized pot, you could largely indulge in it with no fear of federal reprisal, thanks to Obama.
    If you were gay, you could marry in all 50 states without worry the federal government would try to change that, thanks to Obama.
    If you were brought here as a child and grew up thinking you were American, you did not have to worry about deportation, thanks to Obama.
    If you were black, you had the assurance that the federal government would investigate what happened in the event you were shot by police, thanks to Obama.
    Obama tried to push for every American being able to buy a Medicare-like plan that was non-profit to reduce costs, only to be sunk by his own Party.
    As for Obama's Presidency being largely meh, let's remember he spent 6 years of it was spent with the GOP controlling one chamber of Congress and most state governments  (the House and said state governments promptly being gerrymandered to give Republicans an advantage in future races), and all of them engaged in historically unprecedented obstruction. A lot of Obamacare's failures are most pronounced in red states, not blue states, because the state GOP has refused to cooperate with the federal government.
    It's unfair to pin everything that goes right/wrong entirely on Obama, but it should be more apparent than ever from the dysfunction within the GOP - which controls almost everything in this country right now and yet claims "Democratic obstruction" lmfao - that he's not entirely to blame at all for not having a magnificent term.
    That moment when the factories he was promising wouldn't close down have all shut down.
    The "jobs growth" Trump is bragging about is actually a continuation of the trend that has been going on for years under Obama.
    And the best part of all this? We're almost at the point we were prior to the Great Recession. We're due for an economic crisis in the next 4 years.
    Let's see how MAGA Trump is after that.
    Does it occur to you that maybe this isn't because of Trump, but ISIS naturally running out of steam after it pissed off just about every country in the world?
    Look at the experience of Germany in the first World War. Economic isolation will not bode well for a war effort in the long term.
    By your logic, Neville Chamberlain was terrible because he didn't drag Britain into a world war after his country was recovering from one.
    The fact is, any President would have inevitably been forced to pull out of Iraq. McCain would have been a one-termer if he didn't. The public support for the war just evaporated.
    Obama's Presidency was about "change," not fighting in Iraq. He wanted two terms to maximize his odds to pass successful healthcare reform and new social policies.
    The left aren't sympathizers of terrorists, so much as we tend to think "blow shit up" is terrible policy.
    Because it is.
    Money spent on munitions detracts from money that could be spent both on social programs and economic growth in general. So we are more averse to open warfare in this day and age.
    The left also realizes that leaving large numbers of troops in Iraq just wasn't a viable strategy. It would have bled us dry and done nothing to fix Iraq's underlying problems.
    The fact is Iraq as a country has a large amount of people in it who really don't want to be part of it. Saddam, while a brutal tyrant, kept the country together because he routinely played factions off of each other. Once he was gone, the country naturally became unstable, because now all the various groups were asked to live under a single banner with no strongman around to rein in people who wouldn't cooperate. While a lot of Iraqis have gotten on board with the new government, a sizable minority has not, and that has caused problems.
    Okay, where are you getting this?
    The "liberal" media actually overreports crimes committed by minorities.
    The SPLC has black supremacists listed as a hate group category.
    As for rank and file leftists, it's not so much leftists don't want to address crime, so much as we want to address causes of it.
    The gem of "black on black crime," for example. Yes, it is true most blacks are victims of other blacks. But the thing is, a lot of that crime has its roots in white supremacy. Blacks are routinely denied economic opportunities, which will push many towards crime. People who go to prison become more violent and more likely to commit crime because of their altered mentality as well as the fact more doors get shut. Because one's opportunities are linked to social connections, white families have a much easier time escaping poverty usually, as they're more likely to have relatives they can tap for assistance. Blacks are regularly steered away from homeownership that would help them build wealth, and receive unfavorable loan terms that make it harder for them to compete and be successful. All this tends to contribute to majority-black neighborhoods that have worse economic opportunities and emotional factors that lead to... you guessed it, black on black crime.
    The right tends to see criminals as demons who must be exorcised. The left tends to see them as victims of circumstance, which is why we generally push for softer terms on less severe offenders, while also trying to, surprise, change the circumstances that cause crime in the first place.
    The way the debate is framed is really everything. Consider the word "terrorist." A lot of leftists are pushing to expand that word to include large numbers of white criminals. While this sounds fantastic, we've now created a large group of others that are everywhere in society, which may very well prompt the government to engage in civil liberties crackdowns. It would be better to avoid words like "evil" or "terrorist," because they cause us to see a perpetrator as inhuman, as someone we could never possibly be like.
    Leftists don't think people like mass shooters are okay. Not in the least. We want them locked up the same as anyone else. But we do show an interest in studying them and finding out what caused their crime so we can prevent it from happening again. We see criminals as a product of a racist, classist system that could be easily avoided if we changed a few things in how we run our society.

    I don't know Obama helped me get my gay rights while trump is working hard with his party to restrict rights of people like me. And I'm black and we all know Trump's views of guys like me. Call me biased, but those two things ALONE makes Obama immensely better than Trump.

    Dizcrybe got a reaction from MightyRay in Sonic Forces Me To Look Ahead: Where does (3D) Sonic go from here after Forces/2017?   
    My guess is 1) the inevitable backlash the game will get from the fans like a week after it comes out and everyone's beaten it will drive ST to think no one likes boost gameplay after all, which will prompt them to try some new weird and experimental gameplay style out of confusion and just plain not knowing WTF to do - you know how ST are ("They wanted us to go back to boost, we went back to boost, they didn't like it, IDFK, just do whatever I guess), for whatever reason people still won't like it, and we're asking this question again. You can bet the story will be super light, too. Also Wisps.
    2) they see the people that do like the game - maybe people playing Sonic for the first time - and try to cater more to them. What that involves is anyone's guess. Sooner or later, many if not most of the core fans finally get the hint and jumps ship, and a new base takes it place.
    3) They just keep going until we finally do get that 06-tier game that kills boost gameplay completely like that game did with the Adventure style, SEGA finally shafts the current Sonic Team developers in favor of fresh faces, and they try a new style (or maybe even a polished version of the Adventure style) and perfect it until people like Sonic again for five minutes.
    4) Eventually Iizuka finally notices how many people are fans of the Adventure gameplay and tries to make a game in that style. it ends up more like the Adventure version of Sonic 4 and no one likes it, and once again, we're back here.
    Or finally, 5) going back to the backlash scenario, and factoring in Mani's overwhelmingly positive response, Iizuka throws his hands up and decides Sonic is a strictly 2D series from now on. Fan reaction is exactly what you'd expect it would be.
    Or it could be none of these. There's honestly no way to know until the next 3D Sonic is announced. Assuming there'll be one.
