  1. Been quite a while since I was last here. How's everybody doin'? :D

    1. DBZHedgy


      pretty good actually, and you?

    2. DemonShad716


      Pretty good. Just noticed some of my signatures died, tried to fix them, and thats when I saw the server post.

  2. Even though the Muppets intro was a pretty funny touch, Nintendo's E3 was ok/10. Not a whole lot to look for besides that Star Fox game, but other than that, there were quite a lot of Legend of Zelda games. Not to mention the lack of Wii U titles that I was kinda hoping for, especially Pokken Tournament, which looked pretty amazing from seeing the trailer and screenshots. That Metroid Blast Ball game looked pretty cool, but seeing the immense about of hate it has been getting recently, I'll wait a bit and try out the demo if there is going to be one.
  3. **~Bonus Day~** Why Do You Play Video Games? I play video games for just about every reason that all of us here have mentioned so far. Most of the time for me, its for the storyline, characters and/or gameplay. Playing videos games is also a great way for me to unwind from the real world and go on an adventure in a fictional world; it's a great stress reliever. It's always fun to play video games late at night with friends, both locally and online. There's always hilarious moments that happen when you play games with friends, many of which are worthy to record or stream in HD. I cannot go on a day without playing any sort of game, otherwise I would get really bored. Many games give you that great feel of accomplishment as you progress through it, it's the best feeling. Especially when you've beaten a boss or final boss that is really hard to others and you get the achievement to show off your success across any platform. As for storylines, some are so good, it's like you are watching an awesome movie. One that you can really get into, interact with the world there, and make decisions that affect the overall outcome of the story. There are some competitive games that I enjoy just for the thrill of it all such as Super Smash Bros. Many stories I have played through have been very intense and suspenseful that I enjoy playing them over and over again. There's also that dramatic feel to it when something bad or crazy happens that sends chills up your spine. The rumbling of the controller during that really escalates that. The music in the games that I play are so good that I must have them all on my iPod. Everything composed fits so well within the game that it heightens the suspense. Music that is orchestrated such as the Planetary Pieces album for Sonic Unleashed is just absolutely beautiful. Its something about orchestrated music, especially in a Sonic game, where I wish that it was in an actual Sonic movie. I always love the character development in some games where you can understand what the character has gone through based on the plot. It's that immersion that really makes a game more fun and enjoyable. In games where the plotline carries over to sequels such as the Halo franchise, you really get an in-depth look into the universe that it makes you want to live there. These games are special to me due to how much I learn from them. For example, the Assassin's Creed games. I have learned about tons more history by playing those games than just sitting in a history class. I learn a lot from playing videos games and each type of game teaches something differently than other games.
  4. Day 30: Favorite Ending I'm going to go with Sonic Unleashed's ending since I already did Sonic Adventure 2's ending in the Saddest Moment Day. I like Sonic Unleashed's ending due to how touchy-feely it is. It's not easy saying goodbye to someone who you've have such a great time hanging out with while trying to fix and save the world. This particular cut scene did bring a tear to my eye and it was hard to see Chip go. He could have at least hung out with Sonic and Tails a little bit longer, maybe even eat more food if he wanted to. They could have traveled the world once more and actually enjoy it without having to worry about a mission. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the planet you just fixed. It's always good to visit friends even if they are a guardian of the planet. I'd like to take a moment and thank the OP for starting this 30 Days topic. This is actually my first time doing a 30 Days session and I quite enjoyed it. It did allow me to get a good amount of posts out and I got some likes for it. It even got me to put all that time spent in English classes to the test by writing a few paragraphs each day. I don't mind doing this again and I can't wait to see what the next 30 Days will be about! See you all next time!
  5. Day 29: Favorite Overall Cast Gah, these past few days have been difficult for me to put my Sonic card down, I just can't...but just once more. Ok, here goes: Seeing how many characters are in the Sonic universe, it's pretty clear that this overall cast is my favorite. Each character has their own unique personality and purpose within each storyline. In most games, many of these characters are playable and boasts their own arsenal of cool moves, power ups and outfits that I enjoy. The tv shows that some characters appear in also give off more of their personality. Even in the Sonic Comic universe, the cast is just as great with their own plotlines and one on one battles. Everyone's plot line lengthens the game or comic and makes them enjoyable for longer. Many of the battles are intense, each with alternate outcomes. The voice acting for some characters are just absolutely amazing. A few actors in particular would be Mike Pollock as Dr. Eggman and Roger Craig Smith as Sonic. Mike's voice for Eggman fits the character so well that I can't think of how Eggman would sound if he were to be replaced. I have gotten used to Sonic's current VA, Roger, so I'm going to enjoy Sonic Boom no problem. Honorable Mentions - Mass Effect series - Gears of War cast - Halo series cast - Pokemon - Smash Bros. - Mario cast - Team Fortress 2 - Half Life 2 - Left 4 Dead - Kirby series cast
  6. Day 28: Most Anticipated Game Above are my most anticipated games to date, especially Sonic Boom and Smash Bros 4. When Sonic Generations first announced, I was surely hyped because of Sonic's 20th anniversary, there being 2 playable Sonics, and remastered levels from previous Sonic games. All those put together and in HD surely hyped me with much anticipation. So much, for that matter, that I ended up streaming a live play through on the midnight release. I did, however, meet some cool people in the stream chat, one who I became good friends with here on SSMB since the game's release. For Sonic Lost World, it was one reason why I went out and bought a Wii U, the others being a precaution for any new Sonic titles that may launch on it and the console was bundled with The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD and the gamepad had an awesome design on it. Lo and behold, Sonic Boom is going to be that next Sonic title on the Wii U. From what I, and the rest of us here have seen so far about Sonic Boom, I cannot wait to get my hands on it. And the fact that it has been in development for so long and seeing all the effort put into it, it has to be good. Ever since Brawl has been out for a good while and hearing rumors that a new Smash Bros was being made, I was so hyped. Seeing the latest roster and trailer for Super Shash Bros 4 is absolutely mind blowing, I honestly cannot wait to play both versions and I'm sure many of us here are as well. My hype levels are off the charts for this game, and seeing that it is already listed on Gamestop's website, I'm definitely preordering both versions ASAP.
  7. Day 27: Favorite Developer I'm going with these developers below: These developers have provided me with so many great games that I can't choose just one. SEGA and Sonic Team have, of course, made all the Sonic games we all know and love such as Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Adventure 1&2, Sonic Lost World, and so on. However, one developer will soon be added to my favorites list towards the end of this year: With Big Red Button Entertainment making our latest and newest branch in the Sonic franchise "Sonic Boom," there's no doubt that they will become a favorite. That is, if they continue to produce more games in this branch, which I'm certain that they will. From what I've seen in the trailers, its going to be good. And with the TV show they are making based on it, Big Red Button is a definite fave. Bungie and 343 Industries are my favorite developers for the Halo franchise. With Bungie starting it off for the best Halo titles and then ultimately giving the franchise to 343 to make other games for the Xbox One, 343 Industries has been doing well with Halo 4. Nintendo has been in partner with SEGA to bring Sonic to their platforms to make Sonic available on more consoles. They also have made some pretty awesome Kirby and Mario games as well. With The Pokemon Company and Game Freak, they, together, made the amazing Pokemon games for the 3DS and on the classic handhelds. These developers are what made me love videos games, collect them and made me into the gamer I am today.
  8. Day 26: Favorite Console Generation ~Generations 6 & 7~ I would have to say both gens 6 and 7 since they both got me into collecting video games. I enjoyed gen 6 for both Sonic Adventures and it is what got me into the Halo franchise. During Gen 6, I wasn't able to buy my own games and consoles just yet due to being to young to have a job. So I relied solely on allowance and birthday money for my games. I did, however, strike some good luck on the PS2 and Dreamcast since I got them for a really great price at the local church yard sale in near perfect condition, complete with games. So I enjoyed those until I got old enough to afford the next generation on my own. Once Gen 7 came along and I was old enough to buy my own stuff, I got into collecting not only games, but classic consoles as well. I was pretty much tracking back to getting consoles I didn't get a chance to enjoy as a kid. With the Sega Genesis being my first ever console and Sonic being my most favorite character in existence, I tried as best as I could to follow his franchise on each console he landed on. I really enjoyed Gen 6 with Sonic on the Dreamcast and Gamecube, even with the GBA Player for the Gamecube to play my GBA Sonic games on the big screen. I remember playing the demo of Sonic Heroes at a Walmart and played that for hours each time I went there, then ended up buying it with birthday money. The Xbox was one console that got me into Halo. Although I never owned an Original Xbox, I played on my friend's whenever he came over. Then I got more into the franchise when he got the 360 with Halo 3, I even created my current Xbox LIVE Gamertag on his console, created my own saves, and only played on his when he brought it over; until I could afford my own Xbox and transfer all my stuff to that. These 2 gens really got me into gaming and collecting. It was also a great stress reliever from school.
  9. Day 25: Least Favorite Character This one was a toughy as I don't have much to say about a least favorite character other than being annoying or an ass in game. Going with Black Doom and 343 Guilty Spark though. Black Doom was just annoying throughout the whole game, even as his floating squid...eye...thing. He's evil, and careless. He simply doesn't care much for Shadow even though he was created from his DNA and pretty much uses him as a pawn to do the things he wants done and take over the planet. As a boss, he just teleports everywhere which is just irritating as it is. I hated 343 Guilty Spark after he killed one of the best NPCs in the Halo franchise: Sergeant Avery Johnson. This floating orb just flat out betrays Master Chief and flips out over his precious Halo ring being fired early, even after he helps out since his debut. He was starting to become a good guy until then. Now all he's good for is being a Forge camera.
  10. Day 24: Favorite Controller Going with my top 4 on this one since they are all equally my favorite. This is my most played controller, not only for xbox games, but PC games as well. With the Wireless Gaming Receiver for PC, I can even use my 360's headset through the controller as an input mic for Skype. Its also comfortable with the wireless freedom. The controller is also quite comfortable to grip, and if you got plentiful rechargable AA batteries, battery packs, or the Play n' Charge cable, you should be fine for power. The are a lot of things that I like about the WiiU gamepad, one of them being the awesome Legend of Zelda skin in the pic above that I own. The feature for being able to choose to play the game on either the TV or gamepad is really convenient. For me it's not just so that other people can watch tv (even though my WiiU is hooked up in my bedroom), It allows me to use my tv to multitask with my laptop via HDMI while playing my WiiU game on the gamepad. The gamepad itself is also really comfortable to hold, however it doesn't have the best battery but the UBoost external battery pack makes up for it. The Dreamcast controller is awesome with it's tony screen. It's always fun seeing the little animations as you play the game. The one thing I like about the Dreamcast controller is the ability to transfer your Chao from Sonic Adventure and play with your Chao straight off the VMU like it's one of those Tamogatchis. The controller itself may look a bit bulky, but it's pretty comfortable to hold for long gaming sessions on Sonic Adventure 1 and 2. The rumble pack for it is pretty strong; if it were wireless, you would be going through a lot of batteries. And last, but not least, the Sega Genesis controller. For me, it's where it all started for Sonic. The Genesis was my very first console and I loved every second of playing it. To this day, I still enjoy playing on this controller with all the classic Sonic games. Playing with the joypad for the Genesis is also pretty fun with the turbo buttons.
  11. Day 23: Favorite Song Hoooo boy, where to go about for this one. There is literally so many favorite songs for me to choose from, many of which I dumped to my iPod. My Sonic music folder is a little over 60GB, so I might be at this all day. But I will try to narrow it down as best as I can with ones I have listened to the most in the past few days (in no particular order). 1. [Play] - City Escape (Classic) - Sonic Generations: The first time I heard this song after the initial excitement of playing City Escape in Generations, I was blown away. That beat is so catchy and mix that with the vocals, I could listen to it all day. It is remixed so well, I just love it. 2. [Play] - Asteroid Coaster Act 1 - Sonic Colors: I don't know why, but I just love the guitar in this one. After hearing it for the first time on the game's release, I had it stuck in my head ALL day at work the following day. It's sooooo good, I wish I could play it on an actual guitar. 3. [Play] - The World Adventure - Sonic Unleashed: The entire album this song originated from is just absolutely fantastic, but out of the whole 3 disc album, I have listened to this track the most; mainly because I love orchestrated music (especially in my Sanics) :3. It has some feels in it, first some happy, then sad, then back to happy. 4. [Play] - Live & Learn - Sonic Adventure 2: How could I not list this song as a fav? This song is golden, along with the rest of the game's soundtrack. I practically know all the lyrics by heart. That guitar riff towards the end is one I always dreamed of mastering. It's a badass song. XD. 5. [Play] - The Adventure Continues...For Horizon Heights Act 1 - Sonic After the Sequel: This song...for a fan made Sonic game, is simply amazing. The melody is so genuine that it fit so perfectly in a Sonic game. Same goes for the rest of the soundtrack for both Before AND After the Sequel games. Falk did a superb job on the music composition. Honorable Mentions - The rest of the soundtracks the songs listed above came from - Halo 3 OST and soundtracks for the other Halo games - Sonic CD OST - Sonic Adventure OST - All Sonic GBA titles - Sonic Heroes OST - Sonic Lost World OST - All classic Genesis-era Sonic games OST - Shadow the Hedgehog OST - The awesome remixes in SASR: Transformed - All Sonic Arcade music - Sonic 4 OST - Sonic Colors OST - Ice Cap Zone (soooo many remixes for that stage lol) Huehuehue.
  12. Day 22: Favorite Art Style Sonic Generations' art style is my most fav because of how crystal clear the environment is, ESPECIALLY the PC version. Each and every level is so vibrant, it seems almost real. The attention to detail is simply amazing, even with the blades of grass swaying with the wind at the end of each level. Sonic Unleashed has just as beautiful of an art style than Generations, even when you are playing as Sonic in the day levels. The Werehog levels have great lighting and the Werehog looks very fluffy. Lost World is really vibrant and is similar to Sonic Colors' art style. Everything is refined and smooth with attention to detail, shading and lighting. And last, but not least: Sonic CD's opening and closing cutscenes, as well as The Sonic the Hedgehog Movie are awesome. For a hand-made animation, they are really well drawn. The animation is so smooth, colorful, and has some classic anime elements. Honorable Mentions - Sonic Colors Wii - Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD - Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds - Super Mario 3D World - Kirby Triple Deluxe
  13. Day 21: Most Memorable Unlockable Welp, its another Sonic one for me ladies and gentlemen. Can't really think of any other memorable unlockable that's not Sonic related. So here goes. Huehue. Unlocking Sonic in Super Smash Bros Brawl is the most memorable for me due to the amount of hours and effort I put in just to unlock him. I remember that unlocking him was the first thing I attempted to do when I first bought the game. Once I did, I played the Subspace Emissary as Sonic right away and then proceeded to fight everyone else in the roster as him. It was a good day. It's always fun for me to play as Sonic and Lucario second.
  14. Day 20: Favorite Side Character Tails and Yoshi are my favorite sidekicks. Tails is an awesome mechanic and techie who's building skills can easily match up to Dr. Eggman's. He is always that lovable little brother to Sonic, not to mention adorable. Yoshi is an awesome little dino that shoots eggs made from anything he eats and throws them at enemies. He's Mario's favorite mode of transportation aside from his go-cart, hell, he's even babysat Mario when he was a kid. Both Yoshi and Tails have the ability of flight, but only for a short amount of time as they get exhausted. Tails has his two tails as helicopter rotors and Yoshi has his flutter kick. Each of them has also starred in their own games; Tails in Tails Adventure and Yoshi for Yoshi's Island, so both of them have had their own share in the spotlight. Another reason for these two being awesome is that they are always there when the hero needs a lift. Tails always has his Tornado fitted with rockets and machine guns (also transforming into a fighter mech) and Yoshi gives Mario rides on his back and swallow or stomp enemies in his path. It seems as though each of them are following identical footsteps, with the exception of Yoshi in a plane/fighter mech which I'd like to see someday in a mod lol.
  15. Day 19: Favorite Antagonist Dr. Eggman and Metal Sonic are my favorite antagonists. One being the evil genius hellbent on world domination and the other was built by said evil genius and is determined to defeat his ultimate rival, Sonic once and for all. Eggman is a great antagonist due to all the crazy mechs he builds seemingly out of thin air. With an I.Q of 300, it always makes me wonder where he gets all the metal and resources to build all of his machines and fortresses. But his genius is always foiled by Sonic, even when Eggman summons unworldly beasts such as Dark Gaia and Perfect Chaos or charges up giant space cannons. Dr. Eggman always has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, even when he fakes fear when being confronted by Super Sonic. There's always a trap he lays out beforehand. Metal Sonic is another awesome antagonist because of his relentlessness to defeat Sonic so Eggman can rule the world without hassle. He has had some pretty awesome transformations like in Sonic Heroes where Metal Sonic transforms into Metal Madness and then Metal Overlord (so many spikes lol). His Neo form makes him look intimidating as well. One feature that puts Metal Sonic at an equal advantage against Sonic is his ability to copy Sonic's moves, just like Emerl. He can match his moves to near identical speeds and agility as Sonic. But if Sonic isn't quick enough, he could end up in trouble.
