  1. Flashback to Christmas of 2017, my father was telling me about the struggle of getting me a Switch with some games. He got a Switch, he got a copy of Super Mario Odyssey, but couldn't find Zelda BotW anywhere. He told me he nearly considered getting a Switch copy of Sonic Forces for me instead, but found a single copy of BotW at a store.


    I quake in fear of the alternate timeline.

  2. As the game released today and I'm now playing it, Persona 5 Strikers is really good. The story is very much a sequel to the original game, making it hard to recommend if you haven't played it first (but I guess you can just watch the anime). It's so fun to see all these characters again, like catching up with old friends...

    Playing it on a base PS4. Don't see any reason to go to the Switch for this one.

    1. DanJ86


      Mobility is always a reason for going with the Switch version. It benefits my current situation greatly.

  3. Wow, the new Sonic Channel wallpapers come with short stories! uuuggghhh my japanese isn't good enough to read it all, but i'm trying soooo haaaard

    1. Solister


      You can always try Google Translate.

      I've tried to read, eh, is far from being perfect as there are a few non-sense sentences.

      I never understood, and I think I never will, why SEGA don't make a Sonic Channel translation or an equally good English equivalent website. There is sonicthehedgehog.com, but they basically advertise when new games are out or something bigger as the movie or the animated videos.

      I mean, things like the wallpapers don't even need translation.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      Different PR teams, and different internet sensibilities. Even Mania and Forces got their own websites in Japan, while we merely got a page on the Sonic website. Additionally, Sonic Channel is mostly handled by Sonic Team themselves, at least the PR side of the team.

      Also, I'm actively studying Japanese, so Google Translate personally feels like a cop out.

    3. Thigolf


      I dunno man, I think a ton of fans would really enjoy that art and the stories, so keeping them only in Japan so a big chunk of the fanbase will never find about this seems like a waste imo.

    4. Ellipsis-Ultima


      google translate is wack here.

  4. I'm getting lost in Gran Turismo 4. It's such a simple game, yet I find myself wanting to compete in more events, wanting to get all gold, wanting to race for more cars...

    I don't know how a game like this does it, but it hooks you in real hard.

    1. NegaMix


      It can be surprisingly addictive, yeah. I spent many years trying to complete that game myself.

      Then you find out about the hidden variants of cars...

    2. Polkadi~☆


      And then there are hidden variants of cars that only sometimes appear in the used dealerships.

      I'll find you, Toyota SPRINTER TRUENO GT-APEX AE86 (Shuichi Shigeno Version)... You and your carbon fibre hood...!

  5. Something I can't help but wonder for the Sonic movie sequel... Maybe there will be a timeskip, so Sonic could grow out of his classic proportions into a taller, lankier modern look?

    In addition, part of the story could be about learning to grow up and mature, especially as he realises he needs to be there for Tails. Basically, he develops into the Sonic we know and love, personality-wise.

    1. Diogenes


      ...he's already closer to modern sonic's design, though?

    2. Rabbitearsblog


      I have a feeling that the sequel will take place a few months or a year after the first movie.  They did mentioned that Sonic is either 13 or 14 years old in the first movie.  Maybe he'll be his canonical age 15 in the sequel.  I definitely would love for Sonic to mature as a character in the sequel due to Tails' arrival.

    3. Plumbers_Helper


      Tyson Hesse said he based the movie design on Modern Sonic, so he already he already is his taller, lankier modern look. 

  6. I shall tell you my Smash wishes, even if I am already quite happy with the roster:

    - Arle Nadja, from Puyo Puyo. She's a magic user, Carbuncle is also an unsuspecting dangerous fighter, and she can dump Puyo on folks to decimate them.

    - Doomguy, from DOOM. More dakka.

    - Zero from Mega Man Zero. He has a whole bunch of weapons and moves at his disposal that would make him a super interesting fighter.

    1. Cuz


      I'd honestly be for a Puyo rep. Would kind of like to see someone throw the Puyo blobs around like Pac-Man does the ghosts. 

    2. Jango


      That's not how you pronounce Crash and Spyro, ma'am

    3. Polkadi~☆


      Crash would also be cool. Not someone I'm wishing to be in Smash, but I would be very happy if he appeared.

  7. After nine years in development, we hope it will have been worth the wait.

    1. FReaK
    2. Polkadi~☆


      randomly quoting a developer commentary from team fortress 2 for unknown reasons

  8. I have now learned an interesting story when it comes to Sonic VAs:

    When SEGA was replacing the 4kids cast, they sent out auditions for Eggman to replace Mike Pollock. One of the people they sent an audition to was... Mike Pollock. It wasn't a reaudition nor was it treated as one, Mike's agent just called him one day and said "I found a great role for you! It's a video game character called Eggman."

    Mike Pollock was really confused at this. He thought he was already Eggman...?

    SEGA actually tried to replace Mike Pollock with Mike Pollock.

    1. Cuz


      This makes my day! xD

      I great role indeed! 

      Kudos to the agent without them Mike might of missed his chance to re-up!

  9. Prominent leaker, Zippo, says they know some things about Sonic's 30th.


    Take it with a grain of salt, we still know absolutely jack.

    1. Ellipsis-Ultima


      interesting thing is the 2d sonic stuff if true.

    2. jungle_penguins


      The existence of the collection with Sonic Pocket Adventure is a bold claim that should let us know of the validly in a year or 2. Unless someone else leaked that first.

    3. Ferno


      Other than Sonic 4, we never had an HD modern sonic 2D game, so I'd be down with that.

    4. TheOcelot


      Sonic 4 Ep3 please ;)

  10. it's thursday, folks

  11. People who make fun of 4kids openings would sing the Pokemon theme song with no self-awareness.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Pokemon get da ze!

      Wait a minute... That's not right...

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Mr. Enter saying this was bad was a terrible take 

    3. Polkadi~☆


      let's be real, 4kids openings did a lot for us

      Try to imagine Pokemon without that opening, or One Piece without the infamous rap (which is actually stupidly good don't @ me), or even Sonic without "gotta go fast."

    4. Sapphirine Wind

      Sapphirine Wind

      "4kids dubs sucked!!!" says someone.

      but i can't hear them. I'm too busy remembering the Digimon Movie and the original context of Wendigomon singing "All-Star" by Smash Mouth.


    5. Mega


      Eh, I think the 4kids Pokemon OPs were pretty good and the Kirby OP is catchy, but I'll take Sonic Drive over Gotta Go Fast any day and We Are over the One Piece rap. :P Never mind how badly 4kids butchered One Piece.

      Funny thing is, even as a kid, I hated the Digimon dub OP (which was Saban, mind you). When Frontier came out I was like, "AN ACTUAL SONG??????" Haha. The Frontier dub OP slaps, actually, even if I prefer Japanese Digimon and its music these days.

    6. prettyinplague


      Um listen the Pokemon theme is an absolute banger

    7. Polkadi~☆



      I grew up on Sonic Drive, so I have more of a connection to it over Gotta Go Fast, and of course the One Piece rap wouldn't outclass We Are.

      But still, 4kids made their openings count, and Pokemon is the prime example of it.

    8. Ryannumber1gamer


      I suggest you guys count your blessings


    9. Polkadi~☆


      I don't speak for European Sonic X opening. Nobody does.

    10. Ferno


      im still jelly of the French intro, which did what I wanted 4kids to do with the English intro to begin with

      and on that note they *almost* did that for One Piece and I wish they pulled the trigger

      But even saying that, the Gotta go fast and one piece rap intros aren't the worst things ever, its just one of those "what could've been" things that I often think about.

    11. Ryannumber1gamer



      Being fair, as much as I love my anime OPs, I doubt 4Kids could've gotten away with a two minute long intro sequence per episode in the mid-2000s, there's a reason even Japanese EDs are getting butchered with stuff like this:

      Like, we're screwed either way here, we get the original, or faithful recreation of the song, but with stupidly abrupt cuts that kill the rhythm/tone of the song altogether, or else we get a new song altogether that conforms to opening standards in other regions.

    12. Ferno


      I wish they were cut better, but at least we still get some taste of the original intros and endings at all which is neat imo. its like "sorry we can't show the whole thing, but here's a sampler to preserve the aesthetic of watching it on TV as intended; feel free to seek out the whole thing on Youtube or Crunchyroll later tho"

    13. shdowhunt60


      4kids Pokemon is kinda the exception to the rule. Like let's be honest, aside from Jelly Donuts and the other weird edits, the dubbing for Pokemon was actually really good. You can't say that for almost everything else that 4kids has dubbed.


    [worried laughter]

    1. Strickerx5


      Yeah, everyone besides Mike is out... again.

      Whatever Sega's doing better be worth it.


      oh who the fuck am i kidding


    2. Kuzu


      I like how Mike is just immune from getting the boot.

      Oof, dropping like flies now. How soon until we hear about Travis Willingham or Kirk Thornton?

    4. Chili Dawg

      Take me to the magic of the moment
      On a glory night
      Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
      With you and me
      Take me to the magic of the moment
      On a glory night
      Where the children of tomorrow dream away
      in the wind of change

    5. Kuzu


      @The Tenth Doctor Travis hasn't been in the series since 2017. Knuckles and Zavok had different VA's in TSR.

  13. current fanbase status:


  14. some weird shit is happening behind the scenes with sonic

    sega better start talkin real soon

  15. SEGA missing the point of fan complaints? Never would have saw that coming.

  16. can't wait to see sonictubers milk this one for the next couple of weeks

  17. Kinda want to jump on the GME train now. Why not, it's fun to watch out of touch billionaires lose their cool, and I'll make a bit of money in the process.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Hmm. How much are the stocks and stock purchasing apps going for?

      That Gamestop gravy train is looking pretty tempting.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      Not sure, I'm trying to find out myself. I've never been interested in stocks until now.

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Did you do it? Kinda debating but uncertain.

    4. Polkadi~☆


      I have no idea how to get into stocks, or how any of it works.

  18. how does a horror franchise like Resident Evil have such horny ass fans

    1. GrammyGram


      Japan always has bizarre ways to make westerners horny.

    2. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      You're surprised that a horror series has horny fans?

      Dude, not only have people made waifus out of history's greatest horror monsters, but horror movies used to be the way for folks to see soft grade pron before the internet was a thing.

      The devil's in the details, but it's been a thing for quite some time across all corners of the globe.

    3. Jingilator


      Horny-ass characters, it's that simple

    4. Diogenes


      the internet has taught me that "scared" and "horny" are two sides of the same coin

      it has also taught me that horny is the opposite side of every coin

      lotta horny out there, on the internet.

    5. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      @Diogenes You essentially just described being scaroused.

    6. Wraith


      Have you seen Ada?

    7. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      You could say "how does ___ have such horny ass fans" about anything that's popular online

    8. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Rule 34 is the most obvious answer anyway.

    9. Dejimon11


      You telling me that you don’t think Clair is hot? Or Jill? Or Ada?

      Or are you talking about people who think someone like Nemesis is hot then yeah nah

    10. Dejimon11


      You telling me that you don’t think Clair is hot? Or Jill? Or Ada?

      Or are you talking about people who think someone like Nemesis is hot then yeah nah

    11. GrammyGram


      Interesting how you guys have so much knowledge on this certain topic.

  19. So, Needlemouse was actually a way too literal translation of Hedgehog...?

    god damn it

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I think you're the fake needlemouse around here! You're comparing yourself to me? Ha! You're not even good enough to be my fake!

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      And Knuckles is called "Mr. Mole" by Sara in the OVA is cause echidna in Japan can be literally translated as "Needle Mole"

  20. Don't let Xbox live this down. They are clearly not pro-consumer if they had the balls to do this.

  21. Happy birthday, Kiah. Wherever you are, I hope you're well.

  22. I've been watching Korone's Sonic 2 stream.
