  1. Can anyone recommend some good anime on Netflix? I'm thinking of trying Sword Art Online, but I thought I'd try getting some ideas from you guys too.

    Edit: FYI my favorites thus far have been Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Durarara!!, just to give you an idea of what I like.

      Yeah, I enjoyed FAB. Devilman Crybaby is a cut above most, though, due to its emotional content. It's also only like 10 episodes long.

      If you want something less action-packed, there's Mushishi, which is also highly regarded. I haven't watched much, but each episode seems to be a self-contained story about an expert on mythical spirits in Japan. That said, that may not be up your street.

      Have you seen Fate Unlimited Blade Works yet?

    3. Sean


      You can also give FMA 2003 a shot if it's still on there

    4. Bowbowis


      I've already seen FMA '03. 

      I've also seen Attack on Titan and Death Note, so you can skip those too.

      I hear that Godzilla: Planet of Monsters is good if you remind yourself that it's part 1 of a trilogy.

  2. While I get where all the other changes came from it still baffles me how SEGA managed to lose the ability to animate facial expressions between Black Knight and Colors.


    1. SupahBerry


      Well, Black Knight had the benifit of having its cutscenes be in 2D, and a couple FMV. Not to defend anything, but wouldn't comparing it with Unleashed be a fairer comparasion?

    2. Strickerx5


      They lost the ability to tell a competent story too but we pretty much already know the people directly involved with that...

    3. Lord-Dreamerz


      Normally one of the main benefits of being a simplistic cartoon design like Sonic is the extreme clear expressions they can make... Seems Sonic Team forget about that to often.

      I CRY everytime I remember of how massively expressive Sonic should be

      The irony that the cartoonier Sonic games as of late are somehow LESS cartoony in expression than past Sonic games.


      Also Sonic Riders was more expressive.

  3. I maintain that this is one of the most brilliant scenes ever put to film: 


    There's just so much going on here beyond the obvious joke setup. The implication that Jay actually picked the right target; the way his choice highlights the difference between being a good cop and being a good soldier; and the fact that it's what makes Jay a good fit for MiB, who's job is to assist alien refugees and dealing with criminals when necessary, not blowing the shit out of anyone wearing a different uniform. Brilliant.

  7. Ever since Shadow the Hedgehog I've been really interested in seeing a level that really puts the player in the middle of a battle between G.U.N. and Eggman's troops. I can imagine it being a really dynamic level with mortars blasting craters in the ground, aircraft debris falling from the sky, weaving between landmines, grinding on tank cannons, the who nine yards. They could even make it so your actions during the level affect the battle. Destroying lots of enemies, for instance, could turn the tide of the battle in G.U.N.s favor and open up new routes, while bypassing foes would give Eggman the advantage and lead to different possibilities. I also like the idea of a level set on a fleet of ships during a storm with waves constantly tossing them around. Because you're not on stable ground the angle of the deck is constantly changing, timing your actions to the swells would let you take advantage of the physics in a bunch of different ways. I think you could have lots of fun with a level like that.
  8. Sweet, I just hit Amy level.


    1. SaberX


      What are you playing?

    2. Kiah


      @SaberX he’s talking about his rank in line with his reputation total (likes \reacts). You reach Amy when you reputation total hits 2000. 

  9. ... Why? I mean, I get looting the store if you think shortages may become an issue. I don't condone it, but I get it. What does destroying the structure accomplish though? Worst case scenario: The storm turns out to be a semi apocalyptic event and you've just destroyed a perfectly good shelter which could have comfortably housed several families. Other worst case scenario: The storm blows over, you get arrested for destruction of property and you have cost several people their livelihoods for nothing. Other, other worst case scenario: The storm turns out to be a semi apocalyptic event and you've just destroyed a perfectly good shelter which could have comfortably housed several families. Then the storm blows over, you get arrested for destruction of property and you have cost several people their livelihoods for nothing. There is no outcome where this ends up well for these people, so once again: Why?
  10. I swear, some of the vocals here sound eerily similar.

    1. JezMM


      They're probably royalty-free vocal samples that both musicians happened to know of and choose to use in their songs.

      TBH the US' game & movie rating system is broken.

  12. That...

    Uh... Yeah...

    That about sums it up...

      It really scares me how far downhill everything has gone in the last year. Like, I know it really shouldn't at this point, but damn.

      And I thought 2017 was the worst it could get 

  13. My guess is that it's supposed to reference him flying along the stage when he uses Chaos Control in his own game. Black Knight did the same thing with Lancelot's Soul Surge, although it at least had the telltale blue aura, so it was clear that was what it was supposed to be: Honestly, I'd say that lower energy is perfect for Shadow's character. It helps reinforce that he's Sonic's equal and opposite. Sonic is a showoff, a daredevil, his animations should be very kinetic and emphasize style. It's part of how he taunts his opponents, sort of a, "Hey! Look at how much unnecessary crap I can do and still beat you," kind of thing. Shadow by contrast is pragmatic and professional, so his animations should be more minimalist and emphasize efficiency. In a roundabout way, this too is a taunt, his way of saying, "You are literally nothing to me. I'm not going to use any more energy than is absolutely necessary to take you down."
  14. Question: In a 3D game with rolling physics should Sonic act more like a...  

    A. Ball: Where Sonic is pulled straight downhill no matter what direction he's moving? 

    B. Wheel: Where slopes don't affect Sonic's left/right movement and cutting across them at a 90 degree angle is basically like moving across flat ground? 

    C. A hybrid: Where sonic acts like a ball when given no input but acts like a wheel when the analog stick is held?


    D. Something else?

    The Adventure games take the hybrid approach, for the record.

    1. JosepHenry


      Ball. Sonic Islands works like that, is prerty fun to control.

    2. A crocodile

      Should be answer A, as there's always a vertical vector for Fg when an opportunity comes to reach the centre of mass of the greatest immediate attractor. The exception is in a bowl, as that's when inertial properties would make Sonic stick to the surface and no vertical motion would ensue when travelling at high enough velocity.

      he's a ball, obvs

      Ball but also you can drift
