    I don't know how accurate the Tekken wiki is but this is the funniest breakdown of a character I have ever read.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      It all makes sense in context.

      oh no this is all completely accurate.

      "Likes: his grandfather" should have a big asterisk next to it, lol

      Kazuya's story ending in Tekken 5 has him remember the fond memories he had with Jinpachi as a kid for, like,

      one minute. Then his Devil Gene kicked in and his red eye lit up...

    4. Celestia

      He hates the other Smash characters so much he's willing to team up with a volcano to kill them

      This is 100% accurate 

  2. As much as I don't really care for the DBZ movies' replacement scores, I do like this song that plays when Goku is fighting Coola.

    Yeah it sounds like a fucking wrestling match but it takes me back to the old AMV days haha

      The whole soundtrack of this movie was licensed out to rock groups. This song was by Drowning Pool. And I know Deftones were on the soundtrack too.

    2. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Yeah, I know it's all licensed music. It's interesting since the Toonami airing of it actually had to change a bunch of them from what I remember. I wasn't quite sure who did what back in the day since the majority of it wasn't credited in order. The main ones I know are "Change" by Deftones, "The Game" by Disturbed and "Phoenix" by Breaking Point since I played those songs a ton back in the day.

      charmsb

      I dont mean to jab so hard, but please just be confident in your art rather than saying things like "I'll probably delete this soon". The art is good, you know its good, there's absolutely no reason to say things like this, whether you mean it or not. Sometimes it can come off as disingenuous or begging.

      That being said it does look great.

    2. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      That's actually fair, bad wording (I'm tired and haven't been sleeping properly... again!). I share my art online plenty, but I specifically stopped doing it here for personal reasons. They're all tied to the fact that I'm a moderator and I don't feel comfortable promoting myself while I'm working on this site.

      I sorta wanted to share it because of the SA2 talk I was doing earlier this week, but I still have that kind of hesitation of promoting my work on this website. I don't want to look like I'm skimming for clout due to my position, basically. I used to have an art topic but more or less stopped updating it a year in to becoming a moderator while I sporadically updated my Tumblr and later made a Twitter account.

      I take my responsibility towards this community more seriously than I really have to, and it's not a trust I want to take advantage of for my own gain.

    3. charmsb

      charmsb

      Thats a fair reasoning. I dont see it as an abuse of your position or power to promote yourself like everyone else does though (especially since i had no idea you were a mod until you responded) so seriously just go right ahead!

    4. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      It runs a little deeper, but mostly it just feels weird when I work here. It's a bit of an abnormal mindset, I admit, but it is what it is. I'll probably drop stuff from time to time if it's at least pertinent to Sonic (I made an anniversary piece that was shared publicly here last year), but generally I'm happier keeping the board and the rest of my life separate.

  6. Was replaying Sonic Adventure 2 last night for inspiration/research. Even though the characters models and mo-cap is kinda wonky (and I thought this even back in 2001), I think this might be one of my favorites just for its visuals and set pieces. It just looks cool and you can tell this was the only thought running through Sonic Team's minds when they were making it.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      Sonic games trying to be cool and stylish to punctuate it's gameplay is something I really missed you don't see that anymore after the Rush series 

    2. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      It's weird to me how the series has just kind of ditched the whole aspect of attempting to be stylish in it's design. Gens was the last title I can remember that really leaned into it with the trick system returning. Barring Mania, which is it's own thing, everything after Lost World has kind of just been blah attempts to keep kind of safe with locale and design. The level concepts are fairly generic now, and the designs themselves remain pretty safe with not many twists on them like Sonic used to do.

      It's honestly why I've grown to hate the blocky design of the series introduced by Lost World. The locales aren't interesting locations with flair and cool designs, they're all for the most part - totally generic, with weird block design. Even when it's destroyed cities or a carnival jungle, the blocky and tube like design makes everything feel so uninteresting, barring a few legitimately stunning shots occasionally (The part where Sonic blasts out of Egg Gate to see the planet below always stands out for me). 

      It's pretty funny given Mario Odyssey, with it's exaggerated designs and stylish flairs in their level decorations reminds me more of what I expect from Sonic than anything Sonic's pulled out 3D wise since 2013.

    3. T-Min

      T-Min

      The fact that SA2 actually integrated being stylish into the gameplay with the bonus points system - "NICE," "RADICAL," "EXTREME," etc. - is honestly one of its most fun qualities. Literally everything about SA2 goes so fucking hard, from the story to the presentation to the music to the gameplay itself. It was probably as cinematic and stylish of a game as you could get in 2001; the only game from that year that could possibly have felt more film-like in its (in-engine) cutscene direction is MGS2.

      Even if the mo-cap is a little awkward, I don't think any other Sonic game, outside of maybe Unleashed's pre-rendered opening, has gone this far to feel cinematic and exciting. It's one reason why the story works so well in spite, or maybe even because of, its campy 90s anime dialogue and voice acting. SA2 still has the best in-engine cutscene direction in the series, easy. I don't think there was any better way to celebrate the series' 10th anniversary than a game with this much passion and effort put into the presentation.

      It's such a special and fantastic game, and I'm glad it's getting more love and appreciation these days, even if it took Sonic Team dropping a turd like Forces for people to finally go back and reevaluate SA2.

    4. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      @T-Min Oh yeah, the cutscene direction is pretty great. I was taking screenshots last night since I wanted to study the sets and stuff. Something that always got me about SA2 was that they were really trying to capture the feel of American action movies and mixing it in with the series' shonen influences. A lot of the framing and expressions at the right moments I think better emphasize the conversations and actions even if it looks "off" at times with the individual movements.

      A lot of the more recent games have this very stilted look to their cutscenes and reminds me of the whole "guy in a mascot suit" criticism New Frame Plus brought up. Like visually I think they look great but they don't do much.

    5. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      I hope they realize how important that stuff is again. It's like half the reason I love playing Sonic Advance 2 and the speed stages in SA2 so much. And now by Forces it's been stripped down so much Sonic only has one post-homing attack animation lol

    2. Zaysho

      I forgot about those, but from what we're hearing about Colors Ultimate Tails is presumably part of an assist mode and that's what that icon in place of Sonic's life icon represents.

      In fairness this commercial was probably done months ago but my immediate thought was seeing the actor who quit the role (if not was just straight fired) to still make ads despite losing his role.

      @Kuzu What's kinda funny about that is Knux in the new comic at least doesn't seem much different from what Ian was doing with him on Archie. At least from what I've seen, it's mostly been Sonic who's been tweaked a little (he's more or less just Sonic but a little more goody-two-shoes perfect hero and less hot tempered--kinda like the Storybooks and Unleashed) and Shadow just takes a complete 180 for no real reason. Everyone else is basically how they were in Archie's reboot.

    7. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      @Zaysho Keep in mind that Knuckles also hasn't been featured that much either; outside of Battle of Angel Island, he's kind of taken a backseat. That being said, Ian has written him with a SLIGHTLY more bumbling tone than he usually does, but it's not as obvious as with Shadow...

      IIRC, Flynn has said that Knuckles HAS to remain on Angel Island at all times unless something forces him into action, which might be why he doesn't feel too affected, he literally hasn't been featured enough. 

    8. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I think I vaguely remember hearing that too, but he's been prominent enough in the first year and when he returned in the Metal Virus that I didn't feel like they were trying to dumb him down. Shadow was relatively normal in his debut before he went all Abridged Vegeta a couple issues later.

    9. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Well like I said, Knuckles hasn't been featured enough for us to know. We've see enough of Shadow and Flynn's words on the matter to know where he stands now, but the same isn't true for Knuckles. 

      That said, Flynn has also said that Shadow has the most mandates on how his character is written, and we haven't heard much of anything about anyone else aside from that master emerald and Angel Island bit. 

      So...we just gotta wait and see what the deal with Knuckles is and how much leeway is there with him. It's kind of weird how neglected he's been though. He was in the first year, but he had no more importance than anyone else aside from fighting Neo Metal along with Sonic. S

    10. Wraith

      Wraith

      Sega is enforcing a harsher mandate around Knuckles remaining on the island which is a little dumb I think. I like him as Sonic and Tails's third but circumstances make that hard to do regularly. Otherwise I don't have a problem with him though. I think he's had some of the best lines in IDW so far.

    11. Cuz

      Cuz

      Yeah I'm honestly a little afraid for Knuckles there. The fanbase historically gets hung up on what to do with him because they can't think of Angel Island as anything else but a ball and chain, and, for all the respect for them I have, I still wouldn't put it passed the IDW crew to trip over that issue themselves. -_-; 

      I give Archie credit for realizing the location could sustain a whole spin-off series. She's a floating continent not some football field. 

    12. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      It's a funny mandate to me because Knuckles shows up just because in most games after the Adventures (though SA2 could be argued as a "just because" I guess). I'm hoping if this is something going forward they at least get the chance to develop and explore the island with Knuckles. Sonic Team's obviously toyed with this with extra things like the 25th anniversary comics or the recent short story, so that really feels like the next logical step. I do like him palling around with Sonic and crew too, but if they're forced to keep him locked they might as well do something with Angel Island.

    13. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      The Knuckles issue is hilarious to me, because for so many years fans complained and moaned about Knuckles just showing up without a mention of the Master Emerald because they felt it they were "cheapening" his character by just making him Sonic and Tails` third wheel. 

      So NOW Sega are actually enforcing that he stays on the island at all times, but since they aren't willing to actually explore that part of his character, all that means is that he's just going to be absent from participating in any meaningful storylines in the near future.

    14. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I've had this conversation with friends where we've more or less concluded that Sega just gleans shit from message boards and focus tests and applies it in the most broad strokes way possible.

    15. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      It's so fucking annoying, because I UNDERSTAND that mindset, but it makes me angry because it goes against what I personally want out of the series. Sega is basically telling us that we don't matter and our opinions mean fuck all. 

      Gotta appeal to the lowest common denominator and get those good review scores. And fine, I get it when the series was going crazy with the experimentation, it was tanking it's reputation with the mainstream and it needed to change. I get it. 

      But yea, I'm going full "gatekeeping" on this, don't care how selfish that makes me. 

    16. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I feel it wouldn't bother me that much if it wasn't so blatant there's no understanding for why the series has certain associations or why people like/dislike things. It's not surprising at all that the "two worlds" mandate we're all still confused about came about after two back to back mainline failures (2006 and Unleashed) when there was also complaints here and there over the years about humans being in Sonic games before Unleashed. Instead of making better stories or just refocusing the worldview, here's a stripped down version with lots of checkerboard patterns, shut the fuck up now.

  17. Crazy to think they ended the Fighter's Pass on such a high note with Pyra and Mythra but want to give us two bonus characters anyway.

      It's honestly hard to think of what big, crowd-pleasing mainstream choices I personally would get much out of, so I'm just here for the ride at this point.  I'd love for a Sonic rep to "fix up" Sonic's overall representation in the game like what Final Fantasy got (or even less likely, a Wario Land rep to fix up Wario's Warioware-heavy representation), but I don't think even Sonic would be a crowd-pleaser (Wario would definitely be absurdly niché at this point).

    14. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      This pass has been stupidly hard to guess where they can go with it to finish it off honestly. I think Tails at least would be a crowd pleaser but maybe my bias as a Sonic fan colors that some. It'd be awkward if he's fully voiced when Sonic uses stock clips and, more importantly, Roger left so it'd kinda be salt in the wound that Roger never got to really be in Smash but I don't think it matters outside of English. I've considered Sora would be a good closer but I think he has way too many strings attached with Disney and his voice actor that he'd end up like Cloud did before Sephiroth that I'm not sure.

      But yeah, honestly the second Pyra burned that envelope I threw all my hopefuls in a shredder so anything goes for me lol

      Jingilator

      Okay, in all seriousness, I think Pyra/Mythra should've switched passes with Byleth and switch slots with Terry in Vol. 1.

      (On that note, I also think the TH rep should've been Edelgard)

      Okay, in all seriousness, I think Pyra/Mythra should've switched passes with Byleth and switch slots with Terry in Vol. 1.

      (On that note, I also think the TH rep should've been Edelgard)

      Even as much as I dog on Byleth (which I admit I was overbearing about--I wanted Edelgard just to mix things up with FE a little bit) I'm ultimately fine with how things have shaken out, and even if I never got my girls I think I'd still feel the same way. Yeah, I'd be disappointed, because the Xenoblade games mean a lot to me (which is why the Xeno fanbase being as petty as the Sonic fanbase sucks for me), but it is what it is. Hell, at least Banjo got in and that was a character people called impossible.

      In general season 1 felt like its main focus was wide audience appeal and mostly historically significant and unique picks. Persona is a popular modern JRPG series, spun off of classic Shin Megami Tensei games, and offers something really different. Dragon Quest is the classic JRPG with an iconic look that serves as a counterpoint to Persona. Banjo is huge with diehard Nintendo fans. Terry is a big deal for fighting games on a level similar to Ryu. Byleth does run counter to that, but it's almost a given at this point that Smash will serve as FE's billboard that it would've been nice to mix things up with a series that is not exactly underrepresented. I get they all play differently (because I have or do use them) but there's so much more to that series from my perspective (as someone who hasn't gotten to play them) that feels left on the table.

      Season 2 generally feels like "overflow" or things they had planned but had to put on hold because they weren't sure they'd get to them until late in development. ARMS was a long time coming. Minecraft was rumored since Ultimate's reveal and needing to rework the stages to support the mining ability makes me think they were looking at Steve for much longer than most. Sephiroth is a curveball, but it wouldn't surprise me if adding a new character was a condition to getting any FF7 content from Square; Cloud didn't even get his original artwork before the DLC. They openly stated they wanted XC2 rep but had to settle on a costume, and it's pretty clear they wanted to design a fighting style closer to the game but it was too difficult.

  19. At this point I only care about getting news so the "leakers" can shut the fuck up.

      yeah

      Leaks sure. Speculation though? No way, I love that kind of discussion.

      Whenever those news will happen...

      Meanwhile, most 'leakers' are like this when news finally comes:

      It is pretty interesting that the only leaks come from fans. There barely isn’t any major industry insider leaker that talks about sonic stuff.

      SEGA should employ leakers to announce their games :huh:

    Thinking about when we joked this was Bubsy and then he came out of retirement a week later.

      Bubsy is the video game world's equivalent to Beetlejuice. You say his name too many times and he comes back.

      So we can blame the fans who memed him back to life.

      @Jovahexeon The Undyne That's literally all it ever was. Bubsy would have been completely forgotten if not for the memes and bile fascination surrounding the games in the 2010s. 

  21. Is there a good refresher for the Ace Attorney series? I've been putting off playing the third game for over a year now but there's some story/character things I don't remember that clearly at this point. I could just marathon the first two games again I guess, even though I found AA2 to be kind of miserable at the time even if it has some good moments here and there.

    1. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      The games in general often give you enough of a refresher, unless you want straight on spoiler details for certain things.

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I’d say watch the first season of the anime.....then go into 3

    3. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      @Jovahexeon The Undyne Yeah I think I want to get more into the cases/plots. I'm just hazy on some things and mostly just remember broad strokes and my general feelings but I don't know if I'll really appreciate playing 3 without some better knowledge.

    4. Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      IN that case, I would recommended playing the games back to back to back.

      Especially with some of the nifty throwbacks to 2 & 1 that 3 gives.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The anime probably isn't a bad place to start if you want a refresher, but I can't say that I really recommend it. It's awful. But the main story beats are there and unchanged. You'll lose many of the subtleties, and less important points about the cases are different too.

      I'd say replay the games back to back. You'll get through them much faster and you.might even pick up on details that you completely missed the first time around. Ooor... Watch/listen to a bound LP on YouTube. I've found that sometimes I'd rather do the latter than actually replay the games myself sometimes now. It's fun experiencing the games for the first time, and with an LP you get to see someone do that. It's fun, honestly. Just make sure that you can bare to listen to them reading out the characters dialogue for hours on end. Who you can stand and who you can't will be entirely subjective.

  22. Man the Kingdom Hearts modding community has been having a fucking field day with the PC versions. It's great

  23. Would anyone happen to know where I can find the translations for the Sonic Channel short stories? I had posts about them bookmarked on Twitter to reference later but it looks like the account that had them is deleted.

      Jovahexeon Jax Joranvexeon

      Huh. Weird. Worst I got was a sore arm.

    2. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Yeah my arm is still pretty sore too but i felt completely drained a couple hours after I got home. I mostly fought it but was in a complete daze until I finally went to bed last night.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      The side effects differ depending on who gets it. I haven't been offered it yet, but my parents who got their first shots were told all of the side-effects could range from feeling tired for 1-2 days, to other stuff. 

      Although worst they got was my mum had a weird feeling in her arm for like an hour, and it vanished again.
