  1. I kind of liked 06, in a weird way, in that I see it as a buggy mess but I did feel like something could've really been there that I would've liked had it not been so difficult to just play. Kind of a matter of the released product being the bottom line, though, and so while I'm not actually pleased of it and would hesitate to call myself a fan of it I'm still kind of soft towards it. Not really into the whole princess romance thing, per se, though, but that's still the only thing I'd say I dislike on a conceptual level. If they didn't drop enemies directly on my head without giving any sort of chance to respond, if I could actually climb certain walls with Knuckles or Rouge without getting glued to them, if I could just not clip through the floor or have to wait through 2 long loading screens for any given action taken, I could honestly see myself kind of liking it quite a bit and holding it in good regard. Now I just kind of like it while shitting on it, though. Eghhh, I also kind of like Spinball, even though it generally seems to be viewed as garbage. I didn't really take any notable issues away from it - there's better pinball games out there, definitely, but I am a fan of that style of thing in general and when I played it I actually kind of walked out with a good opinion of it on the whole. The things I didn't really like were the hybrid nature of it kind of creating these sorts of shifts in gameplay I wasn't really fond of in this instance - no outstanding issues with sorts of hybrid styles in general for me, but the platforming elements kind of felt unnecessary and sloggy in a pinball style game, as well as just a bit half-assed in how they were implemented. Sonic moved a bit slow as a pinball-type organism specifically, but in general the way things moved about in terms of physics felt kind of wonky at times which I wasn't really fond of. That was more a minor annoyance to me as opposed to the first one, though. Thought it looked really nice visually and I'm just a sucker for pinball stuff, so maybe a bit of bias in terms of why I liked it a lot, lol. I do genuinely like it, though, but from what I can tell it has a mixed reception at best. There's a bunch of other stuff I like in this series that is hated by some, but I do kind of feel like that'd go for any given installment so I'll just list what I kind of see as my two biggest divergences and leave it at that.
  2. Whoa, you visited my profile this year. Surprised you even remembered I existed past me kind of vanishing. 

    How have you been, man?

      Ehhhh, I failed out of Uni in May 2016. I wanted to be an English teacher, but still have to take Math and Science courses and the like and I wasn't at all cut out for that. Ended up just not going back because I couldn't get past the Math course I had to take because my exam scores wouldn't let me move up to college-level courses right off of the bat, then I had to retake those two straight terms in a row, so "failing out" is kind of a strong way to put it since I just didn't try to go another year because I didn't think I was cut out for it. But hey, still 13k in the red to show for my troubles, I guess. Seems you know what a headache debt can be, though.

      After that I just started knocking about and staying with a guy I made friends with in college who had his own apartment, before my best friend I met online invited me to go live with him, and I took what money I had saved up and bought the plane ticket. Have been living in Germany with him since June 2016. Kind of a big reason why I vanished, had to work hard at college and then after I figured I wasn't from the cloth for it I ended up moving to a different country to stake out my claim in the world. Things are getting more stable now, though, I guess.

      And I tried getting into the Souls games, but my computer was just too janky to run any of them and my roommate doesn't have them on his PS4. They look really cool and have been wanting to try them out for a while, but just can't seem to have any luck in that regard ._.

      i ended up just not going to my college anymore lol . my car and laptop broke, so that made doing any homework nigh impossible without staying at the school all day. on top of that, i really didn't want to do what i was going to school for anymore, so i just decided to stop. sucks that something sorta similar happened to you, but definitely good to hear that things are getting more stable for you

       

      on the other hand, really sucks that you can't play souls. my current laptop can't run souls either, but i'm lucky enough to have an xbone. my brother bought me dark souls 3 early last year and i got sucked in. beat 3, and then went back and beat the first two. all are fantastic, but 3 is definitely my favorite. hopefully you find a way to play them soon because dark souls remastered is the perfect starting point. of course, maybe you could try and find an xbox 360 for cheap or something? you couldn't play ds3, but you could at least try 1 and 2.

      Eh, I'm sure I'll find a way eventually. Save up and buy a new computer probably, this one's getting kind of old anyway. Might be able to do it then.

      Though I do wish they'd port Bloodborne to PC someday, albeit that'll never happen. That just looks so cool to me with its sense of aesthetics that I can't help but take a big interest in it in of itself, but eh, I'd need a PS4 for that. Shit's always so expensive >_>

      i had a ps4 for a few months, so i got to beat bloodborne. ngl i personally didn't like it, but i'm in the minority on that one of course. it's artstyle and atmosphere are definitely one of its highlights though, for sure. still worth playing at least once, if possible

  3. Ayyyyy, I know you from a different forum. You probably don't recognize my name, though xP

      I use both RFGeneration and MLP forums regularly, so it's likely.

      Yuh, you know me from MLPF. I went by ghostfacekiller39 on there, but most people just called me ghostie :P

      not the video that it shows, what's below it

  6. I'll be down for Sonic, for sure - hell, it might even make me want to go see the movie itself. Tails and Eggman would be must haves if they want to add characters outside of Sonic, but I wouldn't see an issue with characters like Knuckles and Shadow making appearances too.
  7. Meh, while you know as well as anyone that I'm an outspoken opponent of the NMR arc, the problems with the comics extend far past that - jokes are reused in different issues (if I had a fuckin' dime for every time they made Rarity go googly-eyed over a male character only for Spike to be like "hmph" as a joke, I'd probably go buy a Pepsi or something, idk), characterization is often botched, and the concepts and OCs they introduce are usually contrived as fuck and Mary Sue to the point of being annoying, respectively. Getting compared the comics is going to make think I'll be seeing things of this variety and I'm going to avoid the episode like the plague if that's the case.
  8. I actually really like that scarf - it looks good in its own right as well as as an accessory to his design. I like these redesigns in general, though, but that stood out xP Nice job!
  9. It won't come to the US any time soon because we're a country operated exclusively by businesses at this point, pretty much. It'd hurt their income too much, regardless of all of the benefits it'd bring. Anyway, good for them - I would like to say that I hope this would set a precedent for other countries as well to follow suit, but Denmark is about the size of Rhode Island so getting the whole country to operate solely on renewable resources would probably be significantly easier than say, Germany or France. If one of those larger European countries follows suit, then I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of other countries started it as well. Maybe I'm just underestimating the power of Denmark, though, and this practice will not only become a permanent thing there, but it'll spread to other countries of the world as well. Here's to hoping that this start a Domino effect.
  10. Oh god, now I don't even want to watch the episode. Those comics are abysmal.
  11. I'll pretty irritated about waiting so long during the hiatus only to get episodes mostly focusing on characters and aspects that I've never cared about only to get slapped with a random mid-season hiatus before anything happens with a character I do care about, like Rarity or Applejack. This whole season seems like it's been so sloppily organized - with the delayed airdates (3 weeks between Griffonstone and Slice of Life, I think?), a between season hiatus that was the longest experienced in the show's history so far by a few months, and a sudden mid-season break announced two days before it was to come into effect. Man, back when it was the Hub, I was learning episode summaries and airdates nearly a month before it they aired. I kind of miss that. I mostly miss getting a Rarity episode. No Rarity or AJ episodes first half of S5. Fuck that noise.
  12. I actually like the sound of this idea a lot - I wouldn't like it to be a major game, of course, but a nice little side project that has kind of an Adventure style go around with the genre roulette and whatnot. I would love that.
  13. I'll be honest, I think this change will be welcome over time - IBP4 is clearly just ripping off xF's software, at least in interface, and if I'm being honest, xenForo mops the floor with IBP on its worst day. There's a huge difference, though, so it'll take a while to adjust.

      It doesn't change that there's a lack of Theif of Hearts theme though

      my soul has been crushed ;_;

      eh, IPB is a lot better imo.

      I'm not impress by xenForo at all, to be honest with you.  It's like premium phpBB to me.

  14. Penny, did it just let me like your comment on my status

  15. I don't really have any ill-will towards the new update, but I really miss the Thief of Hearts theme. It was so amazing and now it's gone ;_;

      thing is, in the context of the game this isn't anything to get excited over

      out of context it's so absurd it's funny

      well, i have no idea what The Crusader Kings II is, but it sure looks like a lot of people hate Catholic churches and the Pope XD

      well, come to think of it, the first one is just a bug

      CKII is like, this medieval RTS/RPG hybrid. Think something like Game of Thrones except from a more historical standpoint as opposed to a fantasy one.
