  1. Kirby Fighters 2 sure becomes an incredibly shitty game when playing the arcade mode on Very Hard. Literally can't fucking do anything due to being stun-locked between input reading Whip Kirbys.

    Funny how Figher Kirby is ironically the least suited for this fighting game due to it lacking cheap invincibility frames like the other powers.

  2. Sonic and Tails R really puts a huge smile on my face. ❤️

      Oh shit I was NOT expecting to hear Lisa Oritz as Amy!

  3. This video is VERY confusing but also makes it that much more obvious that SA1 was way faster and more smooth and free with movement than SA2.

      Cursed video.

       

      They got the Big cameos and even gave Tails his own board

      I saw nothing wrong until I saw sa1 sonic and the animals come out of badnik.

  4. This pic of Super Sonic and Burning Blaze by Tracy Yardley is absolutely fan-fucking-tastic.

  5. To be fair, Mario using a hammer is also redundant. Mario already smashes, crushes and squashes enemies to the ground naturally with his feet and butt. Gigantic ones, even. The hammer doesn't do it any better than he already does. It just looks cool. Same goes for Sonic with a sword. It's like a classic rule of cool/young mind way of thinking. "Sword sharpness + Sonic's spikes' sharpness = TWICE THE SHARPNESS! AWESOME!" That kind of fun and silly thinking. I apply that to Mario's hammer as well outside of Donkey Kong.
  6. I rank Tails, Amy and Silver near (but not at) the bottom of the list of characters who can fight based on how they do without their main ability or crutch. Amy is dangerous with her hammer, but without it? Well, it depends on if she's Adventure/Advance 1 Amy or Heroes/Advance 2 & 3/Sonic Battle Amy. If it's the first, she's easy to deal with. If it's the second, then she's a pink Sonic with less strength but knows boxing and kickboxing except when she doesn't. (Which is most of the time because, pfft, Sega remembering Sonic Battle? lol) Might be a small problem but can ultimately be dealt with. Tails has his gadgets and stuff to back him up, but without those he's always been fairly competent and a decent fighter who can use similar moves to Sonic and Knuckles. Still, he's not nearly as skilled or strong, so as long as you can catch him before he flies off or disable his flight entirely, he can taken down. Silver is simultaneously the one of the most OP and absolute weakest in terms of combat and that all revolves around his Psychokinesis and how well it works on his opponent. If it completely stops them in their tracks and can send their own attacks back at them, he's unstoppable. If it doesn't work on them, they find a way around it or they simply neutralize and overpower it with their own strength or abilities or he just can't use it, he's FUCKED. Unlike those two, without his ESP, Silver is literally just an average dork. No super speed, no super strength, no fighting skills, no weapons or gadgets, no nothing. Freaking Cream and Charmy would probably waste the poor dude. Meanwhile, Sonic, Shadow, Knuckles, Rouge, Blaze and Espio all can actually fight without their special powers or tools, so they'd be fine. I'm not really sure what to think of him, but Vector would probably also be fine without his music notes, flame breath and explosive gum because he's a fucking crocodile with arms and legs. That alone is terrifying when you really think about it. lol
  7. I want a Sonic game that looks and moves the same way as the opening cutscene to Unleashed. That cutscene is still the best looking animated ANYTHING I've ever seen Sonic in.

      "Without saying one word of awkward, boring, childish joke dialogue that goes on for ten minutes, we know everything we need to know just by the visuals. Villain, Hero. 

      This opening says everything we need to know without Sonic saying one word*.  In fact, this is so genius, I have a feeling that Takashi Iizuka had nothing to do with it, and probably fought against putting it in the game."

  8. Wow, Sega. I was cautiously optimistic but I was STILL at least optimistic. Why in the world would you waste everyone's time with this? Make a real console or stick to games and arcade cabinets.

      The Game Gear Micro wasn't the big announcement. The big announcement was the Fog Gaming thing. 

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      And even if was the big announcement, SEGA didn't tease it. SEGA didn't say anything about it. They just dropped it out of the blue a a fun, small celebration of their anniversary. They waste precisely nobody's time wit this. 

    3. Waveshocker Sigma

      Just found out about the Fog Gaming thing.

      Definitely still feel the same way.

      Because you don't live in Japan, where arcades are still a big deal. If not for that one journalist making a fuss over it and catching the attention of gaming media across the world that doesn't have the slightest interest in teh arcade scene, I can guarantee you that the fog gaming news wouldn't have gotten all this unecessary attention. We certainly wouldn't be talking about it now. 

      SEGA did not waste your time.

  9. Eeeeh, not really. It's more like they made Heroes and was like "Oh crap, Amy needs a Tails equivalent for her team! Let's just use the new rabbit girl from Advance 2. That'll work." And they kept trying to push the two together after that with it not really working much. Let's not forget that Cream's first game had her either on her own or working with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles with Amy nowhere in sight outside of a non-canon bonus unlock. I still find it funny how Cream worked way better as Blaze's sidekick instead. Wish we'd gotten more of that instead of Marine ruining things.
  10. ...Pretty sure I just said that yeah. But that's not important right now. In all honesty, I'm having a hard time imagining what this switch could mean without knowing how the Metal Virus arc ends. The hiatus keeping us from seeing that end for awhile isn't going to make matters any easier, either. Unless I'm rememebring wrong and we actually will be getting that ending before said hiatus.
  11. I guess I'm going to be the sole outlier here who really isn't looking forward to the comic being written by Evan due to my strong dislike of Silver and of Blaze being anywhere near him. I'll give things a shot, but if that and other character depictions go how I expect, I might be dropping off after the Metal Virus arc is done. But not yet. I still want to know what becomes of Sonic himself after all of this. I'll definitely check out that "Bad Guys" thing, though. If there's anything I've always loved about Ian's writing, it's how he handles the villains.
  12. So I just watched the latest vid from Game Apologist on Sonic and I'm very surprised on how good I found it since I don't follow the guy. I think it's something that warrants a good watch from everybody here and inside or outside the community in general. honestly.

      initially their rantsona thing I'd often see in their thumbnail previews put me off of watching them but I guess I'll give it a watch at some point

      You'll have to put up with his ranting here as well @Ferno, but is a very good watch.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Currently in the process of watching it (have it in a tab for background noise whenever I'm working). While he overall makes a lot of good points, he does sort of gloss over actual criticism some have with the classics with the tired old "well it wasn't that bad" approach in reasoning.

    4. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      @Strickerx5 Ha, that was actually my one gripe with the video overall. But I appreciate the points he does have and the feel good approach from the video, despite not agreeing entirely with some of it.

  13. Absolutely not. The entire gimmick behind Silver is lost if he stays in the past. Then he'd really just be this aimless fish out of water with no real place or purpose who is just "there" for no reason and pops up at random. He either needs to become more of an "all eras" time travelling hero that properly corrects mistakes in the time stream without it being so incredibly vague and with some actual deductive reasoning and problem solving behind it, or he needs to learn how to face his own problems in the fuure head on and just deal with it, which was always he answer they had Silver reach at the end of his stories anyways before thy freak out and reset things again because they can't think of any different way to handle him. All of the other major Sonic characters have set ups built to where any one of them could stand strong on their own for an arc except for him. He needs to get set up and changed to same way without chaining anyone else to him or he's not worth the time and needs to stay gone. As it stands now, Silver is just feels like every single bland anime protagonist who is wishy-washy and barely thinks, believes anything anyone tells him and doesn't have much of any character motivation aside from "I gotta save the world by any means necessary, I guess" and can't really carry a story on his own, so he has to have someone else be around to drawn people in and try to make him seem better. It's irritating.
  14. It's canon to itself, obviously. Not sure what's to be confused by. It's a promotional anime for the Heroes spinoff stuff which is practically an entiely separate franchise line from mainline Dragon Ball. Think of what you normally think of as DB being the main Mega Man game line and Heroes and it's anime being the EXE series. (Or NT or whatever else you people call it)
  15. Man...I haven't had a Sonic game that I genuinely loved and enjoyed since Generations and that was 2011. Like, something I played, went back to several times and still loved it.

    Haven't even had a spinoff I've loved since the All Star Racing games and Zero Gravity. And if the Storybook games count, then Black Knight would be the biggest one.

    Man, this past decade has kinda sucked for me, Sonic wise.

      Up until the run was cancelled, I had the Archie comics to satisfy what I wanted out of the series since the games from that period weren't as interesting (though generally not bad, but they were mostly just there). I guess there's IDW now, which is pretty good but it doesn't really do it for me the same way despite having most of the same team behind it.

      Sometimes I think it's just age catching up to me, but I dunno. I still like Sonic but I've just grown apathetic to the newer stuff.

      Sonic Generations, while not a great game, was definitely still good at least.  I really took it for granted though, because since that one every Sonic game released has been utterly mediocre to bloody awful. The IDW comic seems really good but I haven’t had a chance to read it, and the movie was decent! 
       

      The games have definitely been the weakest Sonic related thing for the past decade.

      It might be because I'm older and therefore, less tolerant of certain things but the entire franchise has just become less interesting to me in the past 10 years.

      It's why I just delved into other franchises, because I don't really get thr feeling Sonic as a franchise cares all that much about its older consumers beyond just throwing surface level fanservice at them.

      It's kind how people feel about Pokemon nowadays, but I can at least still enjoy the basic gameplay from there.

    4. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      Same about the games. Wait... Have you played Mania? I loved that. Besides games, I've had the movie and IDW to satisfy my monthly dose of Sonic, which I needed. I still think Sonic's other media like tv, comics and now cinema work a lot better than the games, despite Sonic originating as a videogame franchise, that's maybe due to the fact that Sonic Team is not capable of producing good games atm. Meanwhile, other developers, Paramount, the comic artists and Ian Flynn, they all do a fantastic job IMO. The comics have actually picked up quality from Archie which I don't remember enjoying lately.

      Tell me you haven't played Mania yet

    6. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Mania is the only video game that I have legit enjoyed, and even that feels more like the exception than the rule.

      It really fucking annoys me that the media I'm most invested in this series is the worst handled one.

    7. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Yes, everyone. I've played Mania. No, I didn't forget it.

      I just don't like it.
