  1. So apparently SegaSonic is considered canon. Neat.

      Huh.

      I'm still surprised they haven't ported SegaSonic to modern hardware yet. 

      Maybe it's the lack of the arcade perhipehripheheral but analog sticks are the same isn't it?

      They didn’t put it in Sonic Gems Collection because they had trouble emulating the trackball. That probably hasn’t changed.

      oh, so encore mode is supposed to come after forces

      i was kinda hoping it just ignored forces and placed itself directly after mania mode

      This is gonna sound incredibly bitchy but could they not just leave it at "Sonic finally returns to Angel Island after defeating Dr. Eggman in another dimension"?

      I'm not even just saying that because wah wah forces bad, I'm saying that because only fans of the series are going to get that - unless you've played a seemingly completely unrelated 3D game that just so happens to have classic Sonic, that whole opening sentence is just going to leave you confused and make you think you missed something huge in Mania.

      At least if you left out the "resistance" bit, non-fans who just played Mania could interpret it as the ending of Egg Reverie zone while fans can see it as a call-back to Forces.

      hey sonic is known for its consistent continuity let the man have it

      eh

      let the blue rat have it

      @Diogenes I honestly thought that was what they were going for when I first started up Encore Mode. The opening cutscene lines up more with Mania Mode's ending than it does with Forces.

    7. King Koopone

      They haven't put SegaSonic is because Sega themselves haven't emulated anything from the System 32 library at all. It says something when people want Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder and OutRunners for years and haven't done anything about it. Even in MAME System 32 emulation has glitches because they don't know why they are caused. The trackball is an understandable reason but that hasn't stopped multiple releases of Marble Madness.

      As for the forced tie-in, well its Sega and they want people to buy Forces.

  2. Not bad, all things considered. It's a bit drastic of a change, and I see they gave him his bow and arrow from Hero's Tail, but he at least retains some level of quirk. Hunter works best as a mixture of comic relief and actually being useful, and I think this look suits both those qualities. Certainly better than his earlier models:
  3. Beat Encore Mode with six Emeralds. I can verify the consensus that Special Stage 7 is a pain in the ass.

    Mighty and Ray are super fun, though. I'm glad they had this huge a comeback after 23 years in that bar.

      After you reach the second speed you have to follow whatever path the UFO is on. The rings and orbs take care of themselves.

      The hardest part is keeping the the pits separated from the ground as they're literally the same color.

    Sonic Mania Adventures (Part 5 Available Now)

    Time for this Sonic Adventure's Last Story!
  5. Mania Adventures finale!

     

  6. Finally saw JW: Fallen Kingdom! Enjoyed it a lot, but I can see why some were disappointed.

      Are people still mad at Star-Lord for ruining the plan even though he's playing with Dinosaurs now.

      My only two major criticisms with this film were:

      1) Same problem I've had with every Jurassic movie: Bit too much time spent with humans, not enough dinosaurs. (Though this is the first time I actually enjoyed all the major humans.)

      2) (Spoilers)

      Spoiler

      The Indoraptor. He's as scary and impressive as I'd hoped, but he barely got any screentime. And I would've liked to see him demonstrate more unnatural abilities, like his predecessors' camouflage. And with that last Indominus bone destroyed, we might not be seeing another hybrid,

      I'll also admit the twist of...

      Spoiler

      The little girl being a clone and possible hybrid was jarring, but I think that kind of concept has quite a bit of potential.

       

      Also, that scene with the Brachiosaurus made me cry. First movie in some time to do that.

       

  7. Aaron wasn't kidding when he said they were doing another throwback commercial! Love that shade thrown at generic FPS's. And is that Aaron himself playing the customer?
  8. They actually did it! New Mania commercial!

      90s marketing needs a comeback like this.  I mean I've seen some good ads over the years, but this is so on point about everything I actually forgive Sega for Forces now.

    4. PaddyFancy

      lol Nothing can forgive Sonic Forces.

    5. Depression Kong

      Okay but does Finger GunZ have battle royale?

    6. PaddyFancy

      PaddyFancy

      The game on the left looks like one of those many many shitty Steam games. Its like a Take That to those. Sonic Mania is pefectly functional and that's the least of its benefits.

    7. Depression Kong

      Depression Kong

      i was joking but okay

      @Depression Kong I wasn't replying to you, I was saying what I thought when I watched the trailer.

      Can we actually get this commercial to play on TV somewhere? This is too good to be kept strictly online.

  9. Some unreleased TMNT toys based on the 2012 show have been discovered, and...

      On the plus side, I'm kinda digging this scrapped Tokka design:

      turtlecon-4.jpg?fit=860%2C664&ssl=1

      I haven't seen much of the show past the first season, but didn't they relegate him to a really minor role or something?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    For those of you already itching for more newcomers, I'm afraid that rash is gonna last a while: NL: Are there plans to either announce characters between now and December or is the finalized, complete roster? Can we expect to see more at a later date? Trinen: We can answer that when we get closer to December. NL: Will there be DLC? Are there plans to expand on the game after release? Trinen: The thing about us, when it comes to something like DLC, we don't really start on it until we have got the game done. So, maybe when the game comes out they will make a decision on if they will do it, or if they do what they want to do, that sort of thing. Bit of a bummer that there likely won't be any big reveals for quite some time, but I think we can last a few more months. And it's refreshing to know Nintendo still doesn't like to think about DLC until after the core game is released. Also worth noting: Trinen(In response to being told how big a project Ultimate is): It really is. You're talking, just from the playable characters, 30 different IP represented. That doesn't even include all of the Assist Trophies. Even the Assist Trophies use third-party characters as well. Could we be seeing more guest assist characters than just Bomberman? http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/07/feature_talking_super_smash_bros_ultimate_with_nintendos_bill_trinen_and_nate_bihldorff
  11. Can't wait for double-Mania action in three days:

     

  12. New MM11 artwork, featuring Rock in his civil form and a better look at young Wily and Light:

      That actually looks a lot like his Archie design.

      No matter how young he is, something about Dr. Light without a beard looks so weird to me.

  13. Thanks to a pre-order poster, we can see tiny renders of Bentley and Sheila! And here's another poster with a new Spyro render:
  14. We've got our first (tiny) glimpse of Sheila and Bentley in Reignited Trilogy!

  15. After skimming through every game of all three Spyro incarnations, I've come to two shocking conclusions:

    1) The Legend series is highly overrated

    2) Skylanders has been a lot more consistent with its quality than even the Classic series

    1. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      I thought most people hated the legends series? 

    2. Forte-Metallix

      @MegasonicZX

      In terms of gameplay, yes, but many fans I've spoken to have gone on and on about how the story's supposedly fantastic. But after watching all the cutscenes, I can't see it myself. I've seen pretty much every plot point a thousand times somewhere else, and frankly, Cynder's not even that interesting. I also don't like how they handled Sparx and Hunter. (Reducing the former to bad comic relief, whilst removing the good comical aspects of the latter)

    3. Candescence

      Candescence

      The Legend games were decent God of War clones, though, the story wasn't too shabby, and Sparx got chuckles out of me every so often. The games may not be great, but fuck me I will defend those games as being decent to the end of time. Also, it was fun to actually be able to fucking fly at will in Dawn of the Dragon, even if it was sorta limited.

      Better than Spyro 1, tbh. I will take Elijah Wood's Spyro over the original "bratty cool dude" Spyro anyday. Almost spoiled my experience of the classic trilogy (that and the horrendously bland world design) until I started 2 and noticed Spyro's personality was almost completely different.
