  1. You know what, it's an article on the Sonic Stadium, so I may as well share my favourite SEGA memories:

    I was born well past SEGA's prime, and yet I felt the effects nonetheless. Gaming in my childhood started out as an "oh that's kinda cool" thing. But then my father gave me a Gamecube, and with it was a copy of SA2. I had never known Sonic or SEGA before this point, my life back then were racing games, Walt Disney movies and The Simpsons. But when I saw the cover to SA2, I was gobsmacked with how much attitude and colour dripped off the cover. And when I started up the game and saw the first cutscene, it was official, Sonic is the coolest person ever to have entered my life. Shadow the Hedgehog may have been the selling point of SA2, but he paled in comparison to Sonic. I think my life would have turned out very differently if I didn't get introduced to this game.

    Do my SEGA memories stop there? Oh darling, there was one place I always wanted to go to every time I saw it, most birthday parties I went to as a kid took place in one, and I still pop in every now and then if I get bored... I freakin' love arcades, and any arcade worth their salt had SEGA's Daytona USA. In almost religious fashion, that would be the first game I play, every time. SEGA made one hell of an arcade racer, and you'll always see someone playing it. Honestly, aside from Daytona USA, if you were looking for a good arcade game other than Time Crisis 4, it was almost a guarantee that SEGA had the good games. Seriously, check the publishers of a cabinet, it's likely that the game you really like is by SEGA.

    Even past SEGA's prime, their presence can still be felt. They've actually ended up one of my favourite publishers in recent years, because they've got quality offerings and oddball fun games. It's crazy, most people would think SEGA to be dead these days, but they're going incredibly strong. also they have hatsune miku, so sega is never gonna die anyway lol

  2. So that entire status just got deleted. What did you your reply say?

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Which status, sorry?

    2. Blue Blood

      Lord-Dreamerz' one about the SEGA announcements.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      Oh. I think he deleted it because of what my reply said, because I said that the Game Gear Micro wasn’t the big announcement, and that Sega didn’t hype it up at all.

      The real announcement (which got leaked just earlier) is a cloud-based service for arcades, which allows you to save all your scores and progress to an account so you can continue anywhere. It’s pretty a Japan-centric revolution, as it benefits their arcade market in particular (and Sega is one of the largest arcade publishers, they have the power to make it a big thing).

    4. Blue Blood

      Ah right! Yeah, I said the exact same thing. The Game Gear Micro isn't what was teased, and what was teased wasn't teased by SEGA. I wish people would get it right...

    5. Polkadi~☆


      Oh yeah, Sega hasn’t said anything. People are getting mad, but Sega never promised any kind of announcement. If it wasn’t for the Famitsu journalist, all this would have dropped out of nowhere.

  3. look at it this way, they fixed the game gear's problem of being bulky as shit

    1. JosepHenry


      honestly this is revolutionary for solving such a problem

    2. PublicEnemy1


      And instead, they make it the opposite problem: it looks like it can break from someone touching it.

    3. Chris


      I wonder how many batteries this one takes. 🙃

    4. Polkadi~☆


      better hope you've been stocking up on double As, chris

    5. Chris


      But where will my rechargeable battery packs go? Even one side is larger than this unit!

    i can't wait, you guys, let's goooo

  5. I'm really fighting hard to complete my work... Writer's block certainly doesn't help. Gotta do better than this.

    1. Perkilator


      I know the feeling, be it schoolwork or Smash movesets for me.

  6. After spending so long reading ドクターエッグマン (Dr. Eggman), seeing a ドクターロボトニック (Doctor Robotnik) in Japanese feels like a crime against nature.

    Yeah, someone is going to hell for this.

  7. You don't even need to ask :D This has already got me thinking of ideas for banners...
  8. america really is a joke, man

      pfffft not even fucking close when it can’t manage it’s own people without resorting to murder 

  9. Walking around the neighbourhood for exercise was harder than I thought it’d be. Without my dog, it’s like I’m missing a leg. I can’t do it.

    Even my cat is depressed. She has gotten awfully clingy, is definitely very lonely, and is lacking in any sort of energy or motivation.

      Sorry if I'm intruding on anything personal here, but is there any reason your dog can't go with you?

    2. Polkadi~☆


      My dog is gone, Phantom. She passed away three days ago.

    3. Phantom G

      Phantom G

      Oh. I'm really sorry to hear that. It was none of my business to ask in the first place, so try to forget about what I said.

  10. Fun fact: People die when they are killed.

    1. Cuz


      Eitri: You understand, boy, you're about to take the full force of a star. It'll kill you.

      Thor: Only if I die.

      Eitri: Yes. That's what... killing you means.

      That's what happens when you decapitate their head off. 

  11. so how's it going

    i'm locked out of an online class because i'm apparently still connected to the session, even though i have no device connected to the class, therefore locking me out completely

    and i can't contact my teacher, because they don't check their messages in class

      Sounds like a broken system.

  12. Man, Fullmetal Alchemist... Someone cutting onions in here.

      Actually started watching that show (the 2003 version) a month ago on Netflix. I’d say I really like what I’ve watched so far.

  13. Hey, I'm learning little tidbits too. My Japanese is very basic and elementary level, and I only really know how to speak politely. While I know casual form when I see it, I struggle understanding it as I'm still very new to speaking casual Japanese. There's a shop in my country that sells the book, as I'm sure I said a few pages back, but it's ridiculously expensive. I'd have to find another way.
  14. Almost a direct translation, so yes, it’s just that simple that it would take up too little space. Even though it’s a pretty direct translation, it’s a little weird to translate back without turning it exactly into the original dialogue. Only thing is that Sonic doesn’t mention anything about "on a serious note" in the translation.
  15. I didn't think new DeviantART would be so bad.

    New DeviantART is really bad.

    1. Ferno


      And I JUST returned to that site recently 

    2. StaticMania


      Grateful for all the time where it wasn't forced on you.

    3. JezMM


      I have a soft-spot for deviantART and usually try my best to be positive about the site but it's so bad

    4. The Master

      The Master

      Did it just change again? The last change kept having bad loading problems on my laptop.

    5. Ferno


      Inb4 we get a roll-back to the old site by the end of the year with enough pushback... assuming they didn't somehow delete all the code or whatever that made up the essence of the old site and there's no going back
