    There's three core franchises I hold dear. The first being Star Wars, the second Sonic the Hedgehog, and the third Pokémon. Away from those cores I'm big on Power Rangers, most Nintendo games, the Forza series, and a range of films and music.

  1. Gotta wait to complete GTA IV. I'm on the final mission, ONE OBJECTIVE AWAY from finishing the game, and my controller just does not want to register multiple A presses to be able to climb into that chopper. Nothing to do now but wait until the Series S arrives so I have a controller with a healthy A button. Not that I'll be playing GTA IV on the day it arrives. Why would I want to do that? I've got DiRT 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 to play (and Watch Dogs Legion to continue playing).

  2. Oh, the Sonic Stadium and its forums. TSS and SSMB. Been here since the Lost World hype and adamantly stating there are no wisps in the game (despite there clearly being a wisp in the screenshot). The hype for each game is always fun, and it's always fun to join in with the events and general talk. 2013 also got me to watch the livestream of the Summer of Sonic, which eventually led to me going to the 2016 event. Still unsure and lacking in confidence, I had my best friend with me and survived the weekend without succumbing to a panic attack. And what a weekend that was. Getting to try out Mania, getting the poster that still hangs proudly (if a bit battered) on my bedroom wall, seeing the goings-on within the environment instead of through a screen. And who can forget listening to Crush 40 live? That was a great experience, with such a charged energy throughout. Elsewhere, the hype of Sonic Boom was a fun year, with a certain low-effort Boom!Vader edit of mine being a particular highlight (since we were all making fun of the sports tape and asking "who's next"). SEGASonic Radio was a good thing to have on, with plenty of surprises to be found within its runtime, introducing me to the songs of a few games I hadn't played. And who could forget the community-led projects such as the Music Albums, Spectaculars, and even the Motobug Cytube channel. That last one introduced me to many new things, including a few Youtube creators (such as Caddicarus and AntDude) and a few TV series from the olden days (Kirby and DK shows come to mind here). We have a great community here, that has stayed strong over these 20 years with many new additions across those years, and everyone has a story of how they arrived here and the adventures they got up to upon first arriving. It's always great to read them. Here's to many more years of TSS, many more projects from the staff and community, and many more years of celebrating our love of Sonic the Hedgehog.
  3. If the games come to the Series/5, it'll be a token gesture at most. Both consoles are capable of backwards compatibility, so if Sonic Team have been smart about their development, they'll have been optimising for the current gen consoles meaning the only thing the new generation can bring is stability on higher resolutions. Which can easily be handled by the boost modes of both consoles. Not that I'd complain about a release for the new consoles even if nothing changes between the gens. As for being quiet about the game in the first place, I really don't mind. We know it's coming. We don't need to know anything else until Sonic Team are ready to release that information. A shorter announce-release cycle works best for most games, as it ensures the finished product (or close to it) is being shown. That's what Nintendo have come to realise, and it seems other developers are experimenting with such a short time as well. Only those games that sell by hype - and I don't mean that in a negative way - seem to be those who stick with the longer timeframe. Sonic's time of selling on hype is long passed. When the time comes to show it off, we'll be happy to know it's arriving the same year, possibly even sooner than we thought possible.
  4. 20 Years of TSS Celebrations are looking neat. I'll have to see about joining the fun over on Twitch for that relaunch. It should be a good time.

  5. For the past two weeks, I've been streaming over on Twitch a fair few games. I've done some GTA Online, Star Wars Battlefront, and a full playthrough of a small puzzle game called Mask of Mists. Today, I'm on Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, going through the Shattered Grid story contained within.

    Come join me if you want over at - https://www.twitch.tv/darkrula

  6. Tee Lopes is never give you up. Or let you down. Run away or desert you.

    What a rocking remix.

  7. It was another great one. Might have only been around for half of it, but the music selection was great from what I heard, and getting in on some of the chat was fun. The new format definitely works better as it makes it feel like a proper event rather than a bunch of songs in a list. Onward to next year.
  8. It's time for the Xbox Showcase, so if you want to join us for the pre-show, head on over to https://cytu.be/r/Motobug

  9. There's plenty of kart racers that compete to dethrone Mario Kart. In the eyes of some, the likes of Crash Team Racing and the Sonic All-Stars Racing games do just that, but for me that game is F1 Race Stars. Or at least can contend with it. Take a read of this latest Moonlit Critbit to find out why that is.

  10. If you want to join us on Motobug to watch the Nintendo Direct, come on over. We're just chilling to Nintendo music until it appears.


  11. They'll surprise us with plenty of news. I'm sure of it. Soon... Right..?
  12. I'm now on Goodreads!

    The database of books has all five of my releases in an easy to find place, allowing reviews and other comments to be shared. Take a look and give me a follow if you're interested.

  13. I've got the gameplay trailer of Watch Dogs Legion paused on the bit where they show the map, and it looks like there's a lot to it, but I have no idea if the stuff to the left is a part of that map. North of the river looks darker, indicating that the area might be off-limits, but then south of the river is lighter, and connecting the two sides are bridges. As well as that, can I explore Hyde Park?

    There really was nothing else interesting to come from the Ubisoft event. Nothing within it was holding my attention.

  14. Oh, I almost forgot about this. I really should check around more when I pop in here. Right... Songs... SEGASonic the Hedgehog - I'll Get You Yet Sonic Advance 3 - Twinkle Snow Sonic Rush Adventure - Coral Cave Act 2 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Rainbow Road Medley Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity - Through Traffic (Remix by Dash092996) Sonic Runners - Run Away (Remix by SARE) Some diverse choices that allows more games to feature on the list, and a Smash one 'cus why not?
  15. Uh... Team17? That Worms game... As interesting as it looks, don't abandon the turn-based gameplay that gave the series some uniqueness. That "a new era for Worms" line kind of makes it sound like you are.


    1. Jango


      That damage control, tho'. Worms this is not. They surrended to the battle royale trend. Nothing wrong in following a trend, just don't completely abandon the core of your game, but adapt it. This could literally be any game, it could literally pass as a Fortnite skin 😕

    2. Menace2Society


      I doubt they’re literally just gonna abandon the original formula with this game. This is likely gonna be a one time experiment, and considering how many games they released with the old formula, it’s understandable why they would want to switch things up a bit.

      That being said, yeah, the game looks bleugh. I would much preferred another 3D Worms game over this, but beggars can’t be choosers, I guess.

    3. DarkRula


      They know what they've unleashed, and so the damage control is natural. Maybe once the beta is underway, people will warm up to it a bit, but they really do need to be more careful with words. Plenty of people do seem to have taken that new era line a bit to literally.
