      better controls and you got yourself a deal

    2. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      no no it's a reference to this site from like three years ago

    3. Polkadi



      can i still get better controls

  2. I want Infinite to be my boyfriend

    1. Polkadi


      screenshot and saved

      thank you

    2. DiamondX


      @Polkadi Did you actually screenshot it?

    3. Polkadi
    4. DiamondX


      Saved. I will use this someday.

      @PolkadiI've got no shame, but I do have weapons against you.


      Pray I don't use them

    6. Polkadi


      I've no shame with that either.

      Yet, mutually assured destruction it is.


      (but we're all weird and quirky, and i'm okay with that :))

    7. DiamondX


      At least you have no weapons against me...

      I hope.

    8. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      pray I never need what I have

    9. DiamondX


      As if you have anything against me...

    10. Polkadi


      If you have something you consider odd about yourself, Diamond, I won't judge :D

      I only took a screenshot not as a weapon, not to tease, but only as a joke. The last thing I'd want to do is hurt someone with their secrets, that's just low :( Plus, I know plenty who have said that, so whatever!

    11. DiamondX


      Lol I was joking too. Don't worry.

      I'm actually wondering if there's anything you could even jokingly use on me.

    12. Polkadi


      You like Sonic Forces >:U

    13. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      I posted it on the internet. It's neither a secret nor a fact unless stated otherwise

    14. DiamondX


      @Shaddy the guy I'm not sure what you mean.

    15. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      polkadi called it a "secret". But posting anything on a public website means that it's A. not secret and B. not factual unless proven otherwise

    16. Polkadi


      Then guess what that means about me :v

      Ask dangerous questions, insist on getting my answer, and you will find terrible things that I really don't find terrible because I never really cared for it :\

    17. DiamondX



      Also, yeah, I guess yiu could use the fact that I like Forces nore than Mania against me.

  3. I kinda wish we'd gotten an Infinite plush instead of a figure. He's got so much floof on him as it is.

    1. PaulyBFromDaNorthP


      I like plushes more than figures anyway. Dunno why

    2. Polkadi


      He can be terrifying as shit.

      But come on,

      just look at that floofy tail. And bushy neck fur. And fabulous hair.

      Actually, maybe that's why he didn't get a plush. We'd run out of all the fluff in the world just making them.

    3. Red


      I really want merchandise of his unmasked self. But considering it only appeared in a comic and not the actual game itself, I'm doubtful.

    4. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King

      He'd hate it, he wants to be edgy not cute.

    5. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      Something about his over-the-top edginess and failure at edginess makes him endearing in a way that Mephiles or Black doom weren't. It's like watching a little kid try to act like a grown-up. Even though I know he's not actually a good character I want to see more of his design and get more of a comedic writing to him.

    6. Polkadi


      And speaking of getting more of a comedic writing for Infinite, I enjoyed his snark in Forces, and wish we had more of it. Something about a powerful being who knows he is being a wisecracker just sits right with me. Like as if he's fearless enough to mock the world.

    7. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King


      I enjoyed his banter with Sonic BECAUSE both were cocky as fuck, it felt like Sonic had finally met a bad guy that wouldn't either give lame comebacks, try to sound all high and mighty or just flat out ignore his snark. Heck, the fact Sonic seemed to hold a grudge on him for his defeat at the start of the game made him throw so much shade for Infinite to retort that every single interaction of those two was actually fun to watch.

    8. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      I also want Infinite to take off my clothes and lick me all over my body


      I actually disagree with that. The whole "I'm not weak" thing is so amazingly stupid that I can't see anything else defining him from here on out. He seems like someone who had a shitty upbringing (maybe he and the rest of squad jackal are all from the same bad place?) and as a result is completely fragile and pathetic and breaks down when he messes up even slightly, but manages to put on a show so well that he can sort of scoot by undetected until somehow ending up at the top. He probably won most of his fights by accident.

      I'm not saying he can't be a snarky bitch -- but Sonic's pretty clearly on to the fact that Infinite fucking sucks, so he might not even bother.

      Infinite felt more like a typical shonen villian then a straight up edgelord, he kinda caught me a bit off guard tbh.

      Calling the “Not Weak” scene edgy middle school writing is kinda a stupid argument because it would be like calling Frieza or Vegeta edgy, he’s angry because Shadow destroyed his pride and presumingly killed his clan.

      He’s a bitch don’t get me wrong but it’s still his pride.

      I genuinely want to see him return one day no matter butthurt SSMB gets, his design and theme song are great.

      His character? Eh, not so much.

    10. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      Except Infinite's dialogue and writing are just worse. It comes off as childish due to poor execution. If they'd given us reason to understand "weak" as a trigger word for Infinite, shown his visible and destructive reaction to his squad getting stomped so easily, anything to make us care, it might have had a better impact. But they didn't do that, and it feels funny instead of sad or interesting in any way. We saw planet Vegeta get blown up, we saw Vegeta mercilessly beaten several times, we saw the absolute joy that Freeza took in doing it. But Squad Jackal gets beaten off-screen, we know nothing about them, Infinite reacts about as angrily to it as someone finding bird shit on their car, and Shadow beats him with a few basic attacks, tells him he's weak and leaves.

      If we followed Infinite in the backstory, had something to show why he's strong beforehand (have him beat up the Chaotix or Knuckles or someone) and an introspective of exactly what Squad Jackal is (give us comradery, interactions, anything) or at least a reason for why Infinite acts the way he does and cares about his fellow members, then it would have a lot more impact when they're faced with the brick wall that is Shadow the hedgehog. After that, it just comes down to direction. Make him hit harder, speak harsher and decimate everything including Infinite. Give Shadow a bigger reason to be a complete fucking dickhole to the guy, as well.

    11. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King

      A cool headcanon I saw, which I kinda hoped they went with, as it would avoid Shadow's OOC moments on Infinite's backstory, is that all we saw was from Infinite's point of view, it was exaggerated by his fragile pride and ego, the Jackal Squad just ran off after being defeated by Shadow, Infinite thought they died, Shadow just knocked him out and went on his way, Infinite thought he utterly humiliated him, so he remembers it much worse than it actually was.

      Of course, for this to work, they'd need to make pride a big focus of Infinite's character, to the point where it blinds him.

    12. Polkadi


      I really wonder what miracles a rewrite would do for Infinite. But damnit, SEGA already squandered the character. His design looks so good, his voice is something Liam O'Brien did really well, and I just want more of him. But his story, it could not have been done any worse.

    13. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King

      Here's hoping for the inevitable IDW adaptation of Forces. Ian is the one I can trust could salvage Infinite's character

    14. Partridge in a Dee Tree

      Partridge in a Dee Tree

      I honestly just don’t know where SEGA/Sonic Team lost their touch when it comes to storytelling, I give props to Forces because it actually attempted to tell something but wasted it so bad.

      I have faith in Ian too if he ever gets a hold of the butthurt Jackal.

  4. Why are George and Lucille played by different people in the flashbacks of the new Arrested Development episodes?

  5. I've actually got an album of what I think is all of them? Already fan-translated. They're pretty cute, and shine light on a lot of the smaller, weirder bits of the canon (Amy's fortune-telling, the fact that slicers suck, etc.), but they're nothing mind-blowing

      Is the second one the one I posted about?

    2. Celestia


      What the hell is that second one

    3. DiamondX



      I think it's Sonic Gather Battle. 

      This happened with that game:


  10. okay I'm getting pretty sick of people trying to justify SADX's flaws

    1. Scott


      There are people like that? 

      Here's just a few, with a couple being personal: 

      • The dialogue animations are abysmal
      • Voice Acting is mostly meh (but voice actin in games at that time were all mostly meh)
      • Dare I even mentioning Big's levels? 
      • The updated graphics are inferior to the Dreamcast models (but that's personal preference really. Still a flaw in my books) 
      • Glitchy and buggy in places

      That's all I can remember off the top of my head

    2. Ernest the Snowpanda

      Ernest the Snowpanda

      @Scott He said SADX's flaws, and everything you described is common across all versions.

    3. Scott


      The First one still covers SADX for sure. For not even updated shiny graphics can cover up that problem. An the last point still works. Since SADX attempted to fix glitches and bugs in the original, but in doing so, brought its own bugs and glitches :/ 

    4. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      SADX's problems are bugged analog sensitivity, 100% worse graphics in every way except the new models (subjectively), weaker collision detection, worse texture and sound quality, tons of sounds and textures that were changed or outright removed, plenty of features missing from the DC version, and a totally broken and gross lighting engine that turns every model into plastic. The "SADX sins" blog has helped me see just how bad a port job it really was, even after SA2B was a perfectly acceptable one, and the fact that people are ignoring me and saying it's not a noticeably worse version of the game is incredibly frustrating.

    5. Scott


      Its okay to play if you can't get access to the Dreamcast original. But thankfully, I've experienced both. On the plus side,SADX has Metal Sonic and every Game Gear Sonic title to unlock :D

  11. kRaO3pT.jpg

    This weird industrial texture from SA1 is the only thing in the series to legitimately creep me out somewhat

      I thought this was the first area in Final Fantasy VII.

    5. Maxtiis


      Yeah it looks a lot like the reactor from Final Fantasy VII. I imagine you found this on that Ultimate DX Sins blog? That was the first time I ever saw it up close like this.

  12. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    I mean, you can't prove that the 1992 manga where Sonic is a caveman isn't canon because they haven't explicitly said it isn't. Doesn't seem to be much of a reason to say some little cartoon from Sonic Jam counts any more. Heck, that manga had Amy and Charmy in it more than a year before either was introduced. Even if it's not canon, it's more canon than another non-canon thing.
  13. Holy shit, Berserk is back on the 22nd

    1. Gresh11990


      Is it gonna be monthly? 

    2. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      Until it goes on hiatus again, yeah. I guess I'm only assuming that won't be immediately after the next chapter. The last year and a half Miura's been off-and-on but still pretty consistent with the length of his hiatuses. The fact that he's not back just because of another shitty anime season like last time also gives me hope that he's revitalized a bit for the future.

  14. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    You haven't the authority to demand some magical entry criteria from anyone who would look past letting promotional material determine their impression of a game.
  15. Idea: Chaos Emeralds, but they're remnant memories and personalities of the strongest wills and the world surrounding them throughout the history of the Sonic universe, created at their death. Sonic himself is the next candidate for this

      So like, strong positive wills?

    3. Diogenes


      why would i care about those people, and what consequence would there be of sonic being a candidate for the next one

    4. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      @A 3 KINGS Heavy engine Not necessarily positive. Maybe Eggman could be one too

      @Diogenes because it provides introspective into earlier times in the SEGASonic world, allowing for less storytelling restrictions. The fact that we know Sonic is one of them would mean that each character and conflict depicted would be as influential to that world as Sonic and Eggman's is on theirs, and (should be) as appealing as the Sonic universe we know and love. It's about worldbuilding, and a sense of scope or scale, that there is a world of interesting people and concepts that has existed long before the characters we know and will continue to exist long after.

      Plus it's an actual reason for a series staple to be important other than "here are some magic rocks". Because there's fuckloads of magic rocks in the Sonic series, so having something to make the most common ones special would be nice.

    5. kirby1up


      so does that mean the forth chaos emerald is housing Maria's soul?

    6. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      @kirby1up well no, because it existed before she died. The world and memories all of them contain would have to be eras of *very* bygone times, which doesn't necessarily limit them due to the cyclical nature of Dark and Light Gaia's battle (which is probably why there's so many random ancient temples and factories littered around Sonic's world).

    7. Diogenes


      pass. i'm not interested in seeing a bunch of time and effort spent on new characters and stories that would ultimately have no meaning to the series' main story and characters, especially when the main story and characters are in such desperate need of fixing. worldbuilding that doesn't tie into the series' main characters/story/themes/etc is just masturbation.

      and the chaos emeralds are important because they're powerful enough to affect the fate of the world. civilizations rise and fall based on who controls them. i don't see how putting some dead people into them would make them any more important.

    8. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      Okay but see worldbuilding is about the world, not the characters. That's why it's worldbuilding. I don't want a world that only exists to serve Sonic, I want Sonic to inhabit a world with it's own identity. More importantly, saying "Well the story sucks anyway so there's no reason to make any new concepts ever" isn't really a constructive way of improving a story. I mean, the only way for these story elements to be handled right is in a universe that's already better-written than the current one, so why bother trying to divert a new idea based on it in the first place? This is the same reason there's no reason to reboot the series when the devs care so little about the continuity anyway.

      And y'know, people actually do want to know why things exist or work the way. Giving them that clarity wouldn't make them not powerful or important.

    9. PaulyBFromDaNorthP


      That kinda sounds like the memory charms from Shadow of Mordor. That would be SIIIIIICK
