  1. Do anyone of you guys think Streets of Rage 4 will come out this year or next?

    1. McGroose


      I'm praying this year cause I'm really wanting to play it. I'm a die-hard streets of rage fan. 

    2. TCB


      This year.

  2. Hey guys, it's been a while... How's everyone been doing?

      Yo,  long time no see. I'm on that college train myself!

  3. So, Zavok's joined up on the TSR? *shrugs* Okay...

  4. Just finished Spider-Man on PS4, brilliant game. My hats off to Insomniac Games for making this beauty.

  5. Playing Spider-Man on PS4 right now, and it's really great so far.

  6. Happy New Year SSMB. May 2019 bring us a good future.

      Happy new year!

    2. Kiah

  7. Also, Happy Holidays to everyone on SSMB.

    1. Failinhearts


      Happy holidays to you, too!

    2. NikoS


      Merry holidays!!

  8. Got back from watching Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse last night and it was awesome. This is without a doubt one my all favorite Spider-Man films, like right in the top up there with Raimi's Spider-Man 2.

  9. Finally back from work, it was rather a little crazy to say the least.

    1. Kiah


      Everything okay? That’s work for me on a daily basis as retail is rough. Some days much worse than others. Especially during this time of the year...

  10. That Sonic Mania Adventure episode really got me and it made me feel really good. I'm seriously hoping for more in the future.

    1. Kiah


      Same. Mania is one of the few things this franchise has gotten right in recent years...

  11. God damn, late Christmas shopping can be quite hassle...

  12. Just got done playing Mega Man 11. Had a pretty good time with it.

    1. Sean


      The weapon loadout isn't quite as good as 9's and Acid Man's stage was terrible, but otherwise I liked it too.

  13. Soooo... Has the Sonic Twitter said anything about this yet?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      They warned us that it was going to happen.

    2. TheOcelot


      Nah, Aaron's too busy laughing

  14. I would like to think that Sonic movie design is some kind of early April Fools joke, but sadly it isn't. They really went with this design...

    1. Kiah


      I wish this was a joke. I really do...

  15. Yeah, Monday is going to be an... interesting day, to say the least.

    1. Kiah


      You ain’t lying...I just hope everyone behaves themselves amid the shock and disappointment.

      And I haven’t seen you in a while. How have you been?

    2. Mania Pipe

      I'm fine. Just enjoying my time off from work.

  16. Hey everybody, It's been a long time since I've been on the boards.

    Coming back to seeing the news about the 2019 Sonic film somehow doesn't surprise me that they would screw it up.

    1. Kiah


      Welcome back! 

      And same, sadly. Same...

    2. tailsBOOM!


      Hey my man!  I followed you BTW!  

      Also, Sonic Boom Sonic look like the Mona Lisa compared to this one (PLEASE DON'T MESS UP MY SON HOLLYWOOD)

    3. Mania Pipe

      @tailsBOOM! Thanks! Sorry if this reply coming in late, I didn't have time to check that yet.

  17. I also saw that new Mario Odyssey trailer and it was just absolutely amazing.

  18. I can't wait to play Mania, it's only two months away, still can't believe it's that close. I'm also hoping that SEGA will give it a physical release someday.

  19. It's really amazing how much shit has gone down in the Forces thread within the trailer's release.

    1. Operationgamer17


      This kind of thing happened every time we had news on the game. At least it didn't get out of hand.

    2. Mania Pipe

      Mania Pipe

      Yeah, you're right. At least it didn't get THAT bad.

  20. I just literally got here and already there's big news and such.

  21. That Spider-Man PS4 footage was pretty cool. I hope we get to see more!

  22. Sony's conference wasn't really their best but it was okay overall.

  23. Hey guys I have a question, it's been one got me thinking about for awhile now after seeing some people talking about this during Sonic Forces' latest news:

    How would you feel if Sonic Team had a complete rehaul of the staff, like director, producer, writer and programmers, and replaced them with a new and fresh talented Sonic Team? Do you think future main title Sonic games, specifically 3D ones, would actually become more focused on the one gameplay that people know, like Sonic's Adventure-esque type of gameplay,  rather than just throwing everything at the wall trying to appease everyone or not?

    1. Dejimon11


      Honestly I don't know. 

    2. The drunkard from space!

      The programmers are fine. The problem is that they're given shitty and off the wall direction. Replace Izuka with someone who can focus the team and direct them into making a Sonic game with one gameplay style and ONE gameplay style only. No more wasting development time on shit nobody asked for.

    3. RosaRosaRosalina



      not in a lifetime

    4. TheOcelot


      Honestly, this would probably do more harm than good.

    5. Strickerx5


      The last time any kind of major overhaul happened we got Unleashed... I'd take it

    6. Zaysho


      I think mostly the designers and writers need to go. Fuck, just rehire Hashimoto.

      I kind of worry a major overhaul in that regard could just lead to a reboot nobody asked for instead of making any effort to fix completely approachable issues.

    7. Mr Loopone

      I wouldn't mind that if it was done right, it could do with a shake up having fresh talent and a more passionate Sonic Team who not only would happily work on Sonic games but also can get to make different types of games again. Many of the problems are due to the remaining higher up old guard being out of touch and it's not just a Sega problem either. Keep the programmers though, they seem fine and are in much better shape than the early-mid 2000s games.

      Problem is that it can very easily go wrong ending up with a Sonic game that very few people will like whether its character design, levels, tone or even the gameplay. Even Unleashed as loved as it is today was disliked back in the day due to some character/gameplay changes.

    8. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      I agree with Zaysho on the writers needing to go. They're not good or funny when it comes to Sonic.

      Also rebooting Sonic doesn't really do anything considering Sonic doesn't really have an over arching story or strong canon to begin with.

    9. Milo


      A complete rehaul isn't needed. Sonic Team's programmers, (graphics) artists, musicians, etc. are fine. For all of my complaints towards recent Sonic games, the games are perfectly functional and the graphics / music are excellent.

      It's the studio management and creative team that's dragging the studio and products down. Their game designers, directors, producers, and (especially) the studio heads...they are the ones that need to be replaced.

  24. Saw the video just now and it got me even more excited for the game than before like holy shit! DAT ANIMATION!

  25. Heard about the whole OC creation thing in Sonic Forces. Honestly, I'm not really surprised that that happened. Did anyone else see that coming?

    1. JezMM


      Sort of yes and no.  There was a rumour about it from a source that had predicted other things accurately in the past, but everyone thought it was kind of unbelievable.  After the trailer with the silouhette'd 3rd character dropped, everyone started going like "what if though?" due to how generic the sillouhette looked.  We discussed the idea of a character creator for a long time in the thread, so when the news finally dropped everyone was like "oh they actually did it!?"  Of course those who were fans of the idea from the beginning were like "yep, of course they did, makes sense."

    2. Strickerx5


      A handful of people believed it was a possibility while the other 98% of us outright laughed at the idea.
