  1. How can Sonic Team make a good 3D Sonic game?

  2.  So uh, has the Sonic Redux and Blaze the Cat Switch game rumors been debunked yet?

    1. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      The Blaze one has, by way of it being a spinoff for a character that isn't recognized in the mainstream in a series that hasn't done a character spinoff in 15 years

    2. Thigolf


      Just reading them debunks them automatically

      Let's see here...


      I'm an intern at SoA (not revealing my true role as I love my job),

      "I/an Aquantance of mine work(s) at SEGA"? Check.


      Gameplay is based on Sonic Advance 2 with speed and momentum playing a huge focus (no boost). Hub worlds are here too, but more linear to navigate through than Soleanna.

      Focusing on aspect from a game not even SEGA would not bother to revist? Check.


      Game 2: Blaze the Cat (Nintendo Switch Exclusive)

      Sonic having console exclusives in this day'n'age? Check.


      (A Switch exclusive spinoff would sound like a pretty low blow for Nintendo assuming he "implies" the "Redux" thing is PS5/XboX exclusive.)

      This is the first I'm hearing of them and yeah obvs fake right there.

  3. Who owns Hatsune Miku, and could she have a chance in Smash?

    1. Menace2Society


      She’s owned by Crypton Future Media

      She didn’t originate from a video game, so no chance.

    2. Strickerx5


      She couldn’t even make it into Transformed so probably not...

  4. Who is the most alpha Sonic character?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Everyone knows Memphis Tennesee is the one true Alpha Gamer.

      Dangit, y'all beat me to it

  5. I feel too many people sleep on the newer Digimon games

  6. I just watched a video on Youtube discussing  the power levels of Ed, Edd, n Eddy characters

    1. Dejimon11


      Link this to me

    2. Adamabba


      Ed is the strongest isn't he

    3. Tarnish


      Ed + promise of a Jawbreaker = power level over 9000

    4. 8ther





      also, check the comment section 🤣

  7. I like Family Guy

    1. Wittymations


      You disgust me.

      "You think that's bad? You should be thankful it's not like that time i ended up on the SSMB."

      I like old Family Guy.

    4. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      I genuinely like the first few seasons of Family Guy. After that it's like McDonalds, no nutritional value but sometimes ya just need yer McNuggets.

    5. Solister


      I like The Simpsons.

      But I guess only the old ones now, it's been a while I don't see tbh.

    6. Wittymations


      I think we can all agree that Futurama is where it's at.

  8. With 200 mons added back in, how many are still missing from the dex?

  9. Has Ed, Edd, n Eddy aged well?

    1. Sean


      It gets better the older you get

    2. Tara


      I still laugh every time I watch it.

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Still funny, but there are definitely bits that have aged weirdly depending on how you view it.

  10. 06 was the last Sonic game with good music

      They never made a Sonic 7

    5. shdowhunt60


      I mean, Unleashed and Colors exist. As well as the storybook games.

      There's a reason why the "Sonic games suck, but the music's great" meme exists.

    6. Menace2Society


      They never made a Sonic 5 either. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

    7. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      son i have seen some fuckin' takes, but son this is a fuckin' TAKE

  12. Why are the Halo games so disliked?

    1. Strickerx5


      Which ones? Because if you're talking about all of them, then that mindset is usually largely presented by people who had never played them or don't like shooters in general.

      1-Reach are usually considered by many to be some of the greatest shooters, hell, games out there. 4 and 5 on the other hand... well that is where the series took a notable dip as 343i took over. While still being solid games, they failed to capture the original feel of the others and simply ended up being forgettable as a result. Those two are often looked down upon by most.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I don't think it's as disliked as when it was in its heyday. Halo was seen was seen as the original poster boy for the modern bland ultra realistic FPS, until Call of Duty took over. If I ever hear complaints 'bout the series, its usually directed at its decline in quality after 3. So it's less they think it's not good, they just think it's not as good as it was.

  13. So has Pokemon become Nintendo’s Madden? As is low effort = more profits?

    1. Teoskaven


      It doesn't have microtransactions (yet) so at least it's not as bad 100%.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It doesn't have microtransactions because they instead just sell you the full game twice.

    3. Teoskaven


      Knowing Masuda and his entourage, microtransactions are next anyway.

    4. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      I don't feel like the game is low effort at all honestly

    5. Strickerx5


      I mean at this point, kind of...

      But oh boy, don’t go spreading that take in the wrong places lol

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Radiant Hero Ike I dunno. You can really feel the pinch in SwSh. A Pokémon game hasn't been this lacking in content before. I feel like they have their priorities all wrong, and put the effort into creating a region, all the while letting every aspect of the gameplay suffer. Generations 6, 7 and 8 (and 5 to a lesser extent) are totally obsessed with their respective regions (even in the ORAS remakes), and it's really weird. Look I don't give a shit about your region if your game isn't good.

    7. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      Mm. I'm not really feeling that.

      I've beaten a few games in the series and this one doesn't exactly feel lesser than the others to me. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. I'm sure it could use more content but as of now I'm pretty happy with it 8 badges in (and usually the post game is just harder battles which I don't particularly care for anyway, like the Battle Tree).

      The servers need some work though, it was really hard to connect last night. Also Infernape is gone 🤘😔🤘

  14. What is the is COPPA thing i keep hearing about?

    1. SenEDDtor Missile
    2. Ferno


      tumblr last year. youtube this year. who's next.


      we gotta bring the internet wild west back. everybody make your own separate sites and link between 'em. the 2020's are gonna be rough af

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I guess its nice to see the world giving me better reasons not to bother being social online. One less load on my shoulder.

    4. Miragnarok


      YouTube had already been going downhill for a long time. At least 2013, really.

    5. Polkadi~☆


      @Ferno only if we can bring back the horrible graphic design and fonts, as well as the basic web designs

  15. The Mandalorian is the only good thing to come out of Disney!Star Wars

    1. 8ther


      Edit: it's fake

      Did I miss something?? I did not know Disney could do that.

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      He already said it’s fake.

      That being said, it just occurred to me Disney now technically owns the US distribution rights to the Dragon Ball movies via Fox(?)

  16. How has Disney been treating Family Guy?

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Not really any differently?

    2. Ferno


      Any changes to Family Guy or The Simpsons will take a few years to go into effect or be noticed tbh

    3. Tara


      Kind of sucks now that Peter Griffin is a Disney Princess to be honest.

    4. Miragnarok


      Not much has changed... Though I hope Disney manages to kill it.

  17. IIRC SuMo are the bestselling Pokemon games, what are the odds SwSh will surpass that?

    1. Thigolf


      SuMo aren't the best selling ones by a long shot.

    2. TCB


      They are not my good sir. 

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Nope. Not even close.

    4. 8ther


      What the best selling games?

    5. Thigolf


      Red/Blue sold like close to 40 million, G/S over 23.

      D/P also sold more than them and even on 3DS, X/Y has it beat.

      B/W and R/S are the only Gens S/M has beat.

    6. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Nintendo’s quarterly sales data from the other week revealed that the sales for each game have been decreasing since X and Y.

    7. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      There are probably quadruple the number of 3DS/DS 's in the wild as there are Switch's. 

      Sw and Sh will sell well, but its damn hard to compete with the install base as large as those handhelds.

  18. Metroid other M, and the NSMB sequels all got good reviews as well :v

    1. Soniman


      I mean. You can use tgis example for any game you happen to not like when it gets good reviews lmfao 

    2. Diogenes


      the nsmb sequels are good though

  19. So wait, all of the supposedly cut Pokemon in Sw/Sh actually still exists in the game’s data, models and all?

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Only some. Not many, but some. Why they exist in the data with no way to be obtained in the game, we don’t know.

  20. Why is Sonic X and Sonic Underground so hated?

    1. Tracker_TD


      One's a shoddily animated show about an annoying kid being crammed into retellings of various Sonic games (with an even worse English version), and the other's a shoddily animated show about Sonic and his two DeviantArt siblings' terrible singing 

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      >Sonic X is shoddily animated

      I beg your pardon?

    3. Tracker_TD


      Sonic X looks good for about 2 episodes worth. The rest of the time, it mostly consists of hilariously off model artwork. 

      There was a good thread about it on here, but the images are all pretty dead now: 


    4. Sean


      Even at its best, Sonic X's animation was mediocre. And it was only at its best about every 12 or so episodes.

      I don't hate the show, I still hold some nostalgia for it and can gush about aspects of it I enjoyed, but it's a rough product overall and its flaws hold me back from wanting to rewatch the entire thing.

      Though the English version for all its faults does manage to salvage some of the lamer 4th wall jokes in the original. The "don't stand on cars" joke for instance is much funnier in the dub.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Boy oh boy do I wish those images still worked.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer


      I will still go to bat and say the Adventure adapt was still fairly good. They kept Chris' role fairly reduced to Big's side story and expanded on the story and made some decent additions. 

      I also personally think X had some of the best funnier/slice of life based episodes in the whole franchise. Stuff like Cruise Blues and How to Catch a Hedgehog are still pretty good hidden gems, and tap into aspects of the characters I like seeing. I think it's fun seeing Sonic acting a bit more devious, Tails being a bit more naive, showing his age despite his intelligence, and so on. 

      The Adventure 2 adapt is pretty bad though, and I fail to remember a lot of good things about Season 3. The idea for the overarching plot was nice but a lot of the episodes fell into samey or boring, and Cosmo's plot in general was botched. They either should've stuck to her being a traitor that undergoes a redemption arc, or being an ally, instead of the weird as hell half-way attempt they made where they wanted Cosmo to be a traitor but didn't want to actually make her a villain or undergo meaningful development.

      X has it's moments though, and I like it for that. Underground is a complete and total dumpster fire with zero redeeming qualities. Godawful animation, shit designs, one-dimensional characters, confused narrative and world, crap music, and so on so forth. Some of the people around here might know it's a bit of a meme at this point that I hate this show, but I really cannot understate it - I think Underground is legitimately one of the worst things this franchise has created, and I grew up with the bloody thing as one of the few running Sonic shows. Underground somehow managed to outlast SatAM, AoStH, and even fucking X over here in reruns.

    7. Sean


      The slice of life episodes of Sonic X were for the most part pretty charming. I'm very fond of the Helen episode and ones where Sonic actually had some amount of focus. I really wish if the series was gonna spend so much time excusing his lack of appearances due to traveling the world or sleeping, that we got to see Sonic visiting different places throughout the world and having his own misadventures away from the main cast.

      Unleashed ended up granting my wish halfway due to traveling the world being the entire premise, and because of the promotional CG shorts that accompanied it.

    8. Menace2Society


      X is complete ass outside of maybe the third season. It’s such an sloppy animated and poorly written show on pretty much all fronts that likes to focus more on some lame ass kid rather than the title character.

      Underground’s even worse, but it’s also on the scale of being so bad it’s good. There is so many fuck-ups, stupid moments, and questionable shit in it that makes it so funny to watch. I think it’s a show that is best watched wasted or whatever, because man, what a mess of a cartoon it is, lol.
