  1. So wait, Tails being playable in Colors Ultimate was debunked?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Not that I'm aware of. His life icon is visible in several screenshots, but all of them show the Wisps in use (including the Jade Ghost) so we can't get a clear look at him. Some people thought that Tails' life icon could just be one the new selectable avatars, but those seem to relate to the file select screen. They were present in the Wii version original and didn't change the life icon in game. Furthermore. There are like 4 different movie Sonic renders selectable as file select avatars.

      The screenshots with Tails life icon imply that he's playable in some capacity. But we can't be sure if that's correct or even how it would work right now.

  2. We all might as well start praying now.

  3. Imagine showing an open-world Sonic the same day Horizon 2 has it’s gameplay reveal... I’m kinda glad we only got a tease now

      Knowing how incompetent SEGA's been at other gameplay styles lately, I'd rather not imagine what a open-world output from them would look like

  6. PSA: The soundtrack to Mario Kart DS fucking slaps

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I'm not saying this just to be facetious, but I always really disliked it. The sound font is made up of really weak sounding horns that just sort of fart along, and synths that sound strained as though they're about to give up. It's just... Not something I would ever describe as "slapping music". Not even close. My friends and I back at secondary school used to joke about how depressing and downbeat the music for Figure 8/Mario Circuit is.

      God I still kinda hate it. It sounds like you already lost the race.

    2. JezMM

      Yeah the sound font always bugged me on MKDS too.  I can imagine the above song slapping if converted into the big band format of Mario Kart 8 like they did when upgrading several previous midi songs (Mario Circuit GBA being a stand-out result even though the original was pretty good too in that case), but the original is definitely really weird and squishy and whiny sounding.  I can definitely see it being easy to joke about by mockingly imitating it with "Weeoooweeeooo" noises (for lack of a better description lol).

      There are a few gems in there naturally.  Waluigi Pinball, Airship Fortress and Rainbow Road are solid.  And uh... that's it I guess, because I can't remember any other songs lol.

    3. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Wow that's just rude!

      What kind of soundtrack gives you so much physical abuse!?

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Even the tracks that are kind of alright, like Waluigi Pinball, are brought down in a big way by the instrumentation. And the only two tracks that got remastered from DS in MK8 are Tick Tock Clock and Cheep Cheep Beach, which were never particularly good begin with (and painfully bland and generic in the case of the latter).

      Idk... @8ther you're obviously entitled to your opinion and should go about loving the soundtrack as much as your want. But personally the more I think about it, the more I disagree.

    5. Supah Berry

      What especally hurts is that the soundfont in the beta sounded superior since its horns were closers to Double Dash's to work as placeholders, which in hindsight they should've just left it be:

       

      But I'm glad MK8 and these fan remixs are there to show off the OST's full potential by remove the sluggish feel of it-

       

  7. Regarding Lola Bunny, I feel her portrayal in New Looney Tunes (aka Wabbit!) should be the definitive take on the character, it blended aspects of both her LTS and Space Jam personalities, with a bit of Babs Bunny thrown in.

      Non-Fungible Tokens

      As I understand it, and I'm not too well versed in it but, They use block chains, and thus a stupid amount of computation power to generate something akin to... like a serial number. People compare the practice to generating bitcoin.

      It's a solution to a problem that doesn't exist in a world where you can commission an artist or whomever to create something unique for you, to your own specifications.

      So in addition to being wildly stupid, the energy needed to facilitate them and the consequent heat pollution wreaks havoc on the environment and threatens to undo decades worth of conservation efforts.

  12. What was #gamergate?

    1. Azure Blue Tori

      Azure Blue Tori

      Short version: Something we hoped we'd never have to talk about ever again.

      Longer version: An astroturf campaign originating from 4chan which accused an indie game developer of sleeping with a reviewer for positive reviews, except there was no such review in the first place. Like most such movements, false premises weren't enough to sway people already inclined to get disproportionately angry at video games, so they spammed social media sites to bully people that were both female and involved in the games industry...because anime tiddies really mattered or something. They also gave Wikipedia arguably the biggest headache in their entire history in their attempts to control their own narrative there.

      It's pretty much the same sexist crap that these niche geek subcultures have dealt with for ages, only there was a flashpoint that made it worse than usual. There was a Comicsgate started under similar premises, but that wasn't as intense. Somehow, we managed to avoid an Animegate as well.

  13. Can someone explain why An Adventure remake wouldn't work with the Boost formula?

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      because then it'd be a boost game, not an adventure game

    2. E-van

      E-van

      Because it would completely defeat the purpose of being an Adventure remake if it's not gonna play anything like Adventure

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Thatd be like making a direct sequel to the genesis but you give sonic a homing attack

       

      Oh wait

      It’s still a remake but it’s not the one people want. The reason people want a remake of SA1 is because they want that style of gameplay. 

  14. Is the epic store really that bad? I'm thinking of making an account so i could get the KH games on pc

    1. Strickerx5

      They made Fortnite so fuck'em

       

      Ok but really, I'll put it this way, it really isn't any worse than most other storefronts on a backend perspective.

      From the many arguments I've read on it, there are 3 main things people take issue with regarding it. It having less features than Steam, supporting Epic in general, and the fact that it's literally not Steam.

      Honestly, the first of which is the only one I really have a direct problem with. The software itself is pretty barebones and, with all the money Epic does pull in, they really should have invested in a better user experience after all this time. That being said, I don't use most of Steam's feature-set either (Discord is miles ahead of any type of communication it has and I don't care about the other crap) so I'm not too opposed to it. Though if you do use that stuff, you'll miss it in EGS.

      The second point is a bit more controversial though, imo, sort of just gets into a deeper argument about capitalism in general. Epic makes a lot of scummy business moves to gain ground in the PC market (buying off timed exclusive deals and stuff like that). While each move can be argued from different angles (one of which is them often being good for the devs themselves), your mileage will vary. Though imo, if you go down that rabbit hole then I can't really imagine the line someone can draw with other companies as most of them do the exact same shit.

      There's also the fact that Tencent owns 40% of their stocks so there's a growing debate regarding if information is being sent over to China from the platform. Nothing has actually been found to suggest as such though and, honestly, this also leads into a whole other rabbit hole of a conversation many other plaftorms are in too.

      Last, and the one I simply don't agree with, is the stance that people really hate having a separate launcher for their games. I honestly hate to sound this way but... imo, it's incredibly hard for me to even see the other side here. Like... I guess the best way to put it is that people love the neat ecosystem of every game being on Steam (even though that makes Valve a monopoly but hey). Personally, I couldn't give less of a damn about having to click on a separate icon but the opposite mind certainly exists.

      I'm obviously speaking as someone who's made up their mind so it'd be fair to take what I said here with a grain of salt. Basically, it's not going to brick your computer or do anything a service like, idk, Amazon, doesn't already do so the rest is up to you.

       

      tl;dr not really imo but fuck forknife

      Can't deny how much I got a kick out the free games a week they pull out. I don't give'em my money either so everybody wins

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Honestly? Just wait.

      Seriously, the games will hit Steam sooner or later. There’s no way in fuck they’ll be an Epic exclusive forever, definitely not a series this massive. They’re ridiculously overpriced currently and apparently there’s a few problems with them right now. If you just wait, the glitches will be ironed out and you’ll almost definitely get them at a cheaper cost on Steam.

      Me personally, I won’t support Epic. I don’t like their user experience, and I absolutely despise some of their scummier business practices. On top of that, they pretty much lost the rest of my good will when they made it mandatory to have an EPG account to play console games. I got Rocket League as a PS Plus game a few years back, and bought it on Switch, and both versions are now essentially locked out unless I make an account for a service I don’t want.

      Epic is shitty, but it's not shitty in that many ways every other PC platform isn't already. Basically every major games publisher in existence has a laundry list of questionable and outright consumer and worker-hostile practices that have simply been obscured over time by both the companies and their supporters. Boycotting them is not only denying yourself something you could enjoy, but literally worthless in the grand scheme of things, because the problem with businesses being shitty isn't one of individual consumers, but the systems that protect those businesses. 

      EDIT: actually, I don't know if discussion of piracy is frowned upon here. I checked the rules and didn't see anything, but I'll remove this paragraph just to be safe.

      The main thing we hammer down on, from my knowledge at least, are things like links or directions on how to do it. Otherwise if it's just minor conversations/ opinions, it's usually fine.

      It is certainly a more... sensitive thing to gauge immediately.
