  1. http://fusible.com/2013/11/electronic-arts-files-desert-strike-trademarks/ - Hmmm... Could be good (since I liked the original on the Mega Drive) but probably it will be either a microtransaction f2p mobile game, something worse or nothing at all...
  2. Morning! or it is Afteernoon?

      You tell me lol. It’s morning on my end and I believe it’s afternoon on your end so I’ll say both good morning and good afternoon to you 🙂

      Morning Mr Loopone.

  4. Being poorly with my left leg all day and having lots of sleep meant that I missed both the party and worse half the day too. Was pleased as punch when I saw Sonic Mania, honestly smiling all the way through. Sooooooo good. Last time it was Sonic Lost World but even more happier with this game as soon as I saw who is working on this.

    When the trailer finished I felt like giving Taxman a good handshake and even an Italian style kiss to @Azoo @Tracker for this.

      Sorry to hear about your leg. Hope you are feeling better at this point and I'm glad Sonic Mania (wow I've typed it so much in my phone in the past 15 hours or so my phone predicted "Mania" when I typed in "Sonic" lol) cheered you up. I know it brought a big smile to my face :) 

  5. Concerned about Sega 3D Classics Collection that's coming out next week for PAL regions. Looking around, there seems to have preorders for the German, Italian and Austrailian versions of the game but nothing for the UK. Looked at every place that I can think of (Argos, Smyths, GAME, Graingers, even Play Asia) but no dice. It's even worse than Fast Racing Neo since not even Amazon who are only selling US imports of the game and Base don't have it either. The other Sega/Atlus games have been listed but not that one which makes it a bit strange.

    It is worrying since I've been after the game ever since it got announced in English...

      I'm sure I heard Argos were stocking it, would be very weird if it was nowhere to be found.

      Thanks! That's great news.

  6. Feels good to come back here after being away for so long, it has cheered me up. Thought it was gone for good.

    It's just upsetting what happened to Komo.

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      Indeed. It's very much sad and absolutely heartbreaking :( 

      And I had noticed you had come back! I had wondered where you had been. Welcome back! 

  7. Gave a listen to the entire Sonic Mania soundtrack, more or less a spoiler free way of doing so as in minimizing the player while they play so it doesn't spoil the moments.

    It seems that apart from Green Hill Act 2, Chemical Plant Act 2, Studiopolis Act 1, Main Menu, miniboss/some of the bosses (Confidential Mission esque sounding Eggman 1 and Hard Boiled Heavies in particular) and all of Mirage Saloon that are amazing/my favorites, they are just okay. Maybe good as they are nice sounding but not my favourite by a lot shot and definitely not my favourite classic Sonic one that's for sure. Probably on par with Sonic 3D both versions, Chaotix and CD (US), higher than Blast, both Sonic Drifts, Spinball, Skypatrol but lower than both Sonic 1 and 2s, 3&K, CD (JP), Pocket Adventure, Triple Trouble and R.

    The rest are either just sound instrument replacements that sounds like they came from the bonus tracks of Generations losing the charm (apart from Green Hill and even still that one to a small degree, would rather listen to the FM originals than the technically better but lacking in soul versions) and I was disappointed with Flying Battery not having enough ooomph to the song and he beginning of Act 2 sounds like elevator music plus Blue Sphere sounding annoying after a bit, the Sonic CD type of ones are good but the originals are still easily ahead for me and sadly much of the new stuff sound a bit bland, not really fitting for the series, if it did fit then some tracks from the US version of Sonic CD would be close. Sadly it's a issue that I forgot what they sounded like after play and normally a lot of Sonic music sticks into my head, even cheesefest Splash Hill zone Act 1 from Sonic 4 was quick into my head from its first play.

    Just a bit disappointing that the entire soundtrack doesn't meet with the highs of the announced/leaked tracks otherwise CD (JP) and Adventure would have some stiff competition. In fact afterwards I went straight back to listening to Sonic 1 and 2 just for that FM charm and my favorites from Mania.

    Oh and is it me or does the last track sounds like the title from Knuckles Chaotix?

  8. Glad people are happy with the Crash remakes, Yakuza remake in English, WipEout HD Fury/2048 remaster (not on here but read about it on the PSBlog), MvsC Infinite/UMvsC 3, Nier Automata, Last of Us Part 2 and The Knackening. They sound like great games and Crash looks good but I just feel apathic towards them and still no influence to get me a PS4...

    Maybe I'm just getting tired of all the remakes and sequels that are out there (not just gaming but movies and repeats on TV too).

    1. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      I understand how you feel. 

      Honestly, to me, this whole thing looks like Sony just trying to give value to its consoles solely by its games. 

      I'm just kinda sick of that. Really kills any joy I would otherwise have. Well, I have plenty of PC games, I'll get a PS4 when it bargain bins eventually. I don't care too much about these games, so I can live without them for a year or two.

      Mando-Whirl-Wind

      Oh none of this is making me interesting on the PS4, especially since quite a number are coming to other platforms. Heck MVSC and Crash seem like shoeins on the switch

  9. Good morning! It's Sonic's birthday today, sadly I haven't done anything special yet however finally after all these years show the video that wanted to show here but it was down that day:

    (bearing in mind the video is 8 years old and a lot has changed since)

  10. Got myself a fighting game from a well known series that covers a vast history that came in the mail today. It is S...

     

     

     

    Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. Sorry if you expected Smash Ulitmate but rather unusually, this one was actually nearly sold out and managed to squeeze a copy.

  11. Happy birthday Bender.

    Got some booze and cigars for you.

  12. Happy late birthday, sorry that I didn't get around to it. Was too busy.

    Anyway, glad that you enjoyed it.

  13. Happy late birthday, Yeow. Sorry for being late, was pretty busy yesterday.

    Anyway hope you enjoyed it.

      Thank you!

  14. Happy Thanksgiving or as it is known these days turkey/football day if you celebrate it, if not hope you have a good Thursday.

    @Kiah @Ferno or anyone else who works on retail. Hope you two are going to be okay tomorrow for Black Friday, feel sorry for anyone who has to work especially considering what it can get like with people rushing for their bargains.

    1. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Happy Thanksgiving to you as well @Mr Loopone!

    2. Kiah

      Kiah

      Thank you for thinking about us. The retail field is rough in general but especially this time of year. 

      I work in a grocery store so things should ease up after today (as we’re open on Thanksgiving Day) until the Christmas rush which is actually busier and worse.

      I really can’t complain though amid the difficulties as I have a job that I’m extremely thankful for and one that I actually like let alone be at for 15 years now. 

      You have a good one too 🙂

    3. Failinhearts

      Happy thanksgiving to you, too!

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      Thanks! I currently work in the back in my store so I don't feel the rush too much where I'm at on black friday, but I probably will next year since I'll probably be in a different department by then.

      Happy turkey day!

  15. Hmm... Not keen on the new season of the Simpsons, its the first season where I haven't enjoyed the episodes at all and felt like the series has really gone downhill. It's trying too hard to be different with animation styles well weird for the sake of weird and become more fantasy despite the use of recycled plots that were done better before. Not completely terrible, just lost the plot. Only thing close was the Mike Scully era where that had some unwatchable episodes and a different tone to previous and later episodes however that had a couple of episodes that I did like though.

    (Yes, I know people have been saying this for the past 17 years regarding its decline however I suffered through the Scully era, sort of enjoyed the bland 2000s episodes, even the HD era had some decent stuff. Even last season had some episodes that I sorted of liked.)

  16. I think that I'll go and retire.

    Good night SSMB!

      G'night dude!

  17. I'll bet that if England win the World Cup as in football's coming home, I'll go watch an anime of SSMB's choice and have my avatar be Sailor Jupiter for a week. Oh and play a game of PES 2016 as Huddersfield West Yorkshire Town on that day.

    (Would have ate a hat as well except that I don't have one)

  18. It might be Halloween but feel like an IRL Zombie for the past week. Walking like one, just going uhh-huh but mute most of the time and as blank expression as one. Only thing missing is wanting to eat brains (because it is still sort of active).

    Trying so hard to talk but just can't. Anyway good night SSMB.

      Night, buddy. Hope you feel more chipper, okay?

  19. It's been a bit of a disappointing E3 for me. I know... what? There were some good games there!

    Well... None of the games for E3 hyped me or even say play me, play me. Well maybe except Metal Wolf Chaos (because the only other option is spending crazy money for a copy that might not work) and even then I wait until release and people played the game because I'm not sure. It might be a bad port, it might have bad controls (hey, it was a 6th generation game and not every game had good controls or camera angles), it might not even be the same as the original Xbox version.

    Maybe because of my old age or is it because it is getting tiring? When a majority of E3 are sequels, remakes, sequels that aren't sequels or spiritual successors to sequels as well as a few ports, it just feels samey. People are hyped for Smash as usual while it's getting boring for me (it's understandable to get hyped since nearly everyone is in the game though).

    1. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I think with Nintendo in particular, we've gotten so used to just having info spoonfed to us throughout the year that E3 can feel kind of underwhelming in comparison. Though I'm still satisfied with what I saw, even if most of what I'm interested in isn't anything I didn't already know about.

  20. It's been a miserable day for me today, constantly raining and always seems to happen when I enjoy myself the day before...

    At least I've managed to get Majora's Mask 3DS today, only because the store is clearing out 3DS stock and cut back selling games so it was on offer. No BotW on either console despite the place was selling Switches and expensive party games for it. £50 for a game? No thank you.

  21. Just had my 16 milliseconds of fame, I've been on TV!

    The Tour de Yorkshire was around at my end and saw all the cyclists, literally it was on my doorstep since I live near the end of the route. For anyone watching, if you saw someone with a bright pink shirt waving holding my drink. That'll be me.

  22. Ooof... a year has gone already? I miss Komodin, he was kind, pleasant and helpful. The feeling was even worse since I came back and thought how was Komodin doing until I read the news about his passing on that very day, it was upsetting to put it lightly not just me but the ones who knew him the closest. He won't be forgotten here and make sure to remember him as much as possible. My only regret is that I didn't get to talk to him very much...

    I wonder if he would have enjoyed Friday, what with the Switch and BotW releasing. Plus I'm sure that he would have looked forward to Mania and 2017.

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      I miss Komodin so much...and I'm sure he would of enjoy all of those things very much especially Sonic Mania and Project 2017 seeing what a huge Sonic fan he was. It's a real shame and tragedy among other things :( 

  23. Played the demo of Freedom Planet (yes, a bit late I know) just to see if it works and don't think the game is for me. For what was originally a fangame, it is polished enough and has some good graphics. Controls well enough but found it a bit loose. It seems very Sonic and Rocket Knight Adventures/Sparkster like but its a bit too close because you could tell what got directly lifted from those games, oh and some NiGHTS for presentation with a bit of Treasure.

    It just re-enforces what I don't like about Sonic 3&K (long levels, 10 minutes+ in this case) and the second level reminded me of Marble Garden, the zone that usually says nope for me. The story seems very well SatAMy (the villain at the beginning could have passes of as Robotnik) and probably gets worse.

    Don't think that would get the full game despite being on sale. A bit disappointing since I thought that would have liked it but its just okay.

  24. Really enjoyed the first episode of Mania Adventures, can't wait for the next episode!

    Also watching it reminded me of some cartoons particularly French made cartoons/Road Runner where it is about the expressions and the actions rather than the voices.

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      It’s not my preference as I like hearing voices and Sonic being a chatterbox in particular. But boy did Sonic Mania Adventures do it well!

      A fine example of providing entertainment without saying a single word as the expressions and actions speak for themselves! ?
