  1. Whoa, you visited my profile this year. Surprised you even remembered I existed past me kind of vanishing. 

    How have you been, man?

    1. Penny


      i've been doin pretty well. don't have much to complain about, except for maybe the Looming Debt i have. otherwise, i just work and play vidya. been obsessed with the souls games recently. so yeah, pretty good all things considered. how about you?

      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 >_>

    5. Penny


      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

  2. >tfw you realize you own over 200 dollars worth of DLC for a single game

  3. http://time.com/3856405/baby-name-popularity/# this thing is so cool to me for some reason

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

  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. Oh god, now I don't even want to watch the episode. Those comics are abysmal.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    1. Lisbon


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

      my soul has been crushed ;_;

    2. Stritix


      eh, IPB is a lot better imo.

    3. Tara


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

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

  11. 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 ;_;


    1. Penny


      no sonical either

  12. hey guys let's become the bubsy stadium message board

      Thanks a lot, bro!

  18. I gots a catchup day to do. For the first time, too Shame on me. Question #29: What are your top TWELVE (or less) overlooked level tracks? I'm just going to do a top 5. Twelve is a steep number as is and I'm tired :S Sandopolis Zone Act 2 - S3&K The song has a bit of a dark, dirty feel to it. I struggled with this level immensely, and I feel that the music makes it just that much more intense. It does the level justice, honestly. Gritty, tough, and kind of stressful. Replace "stressful" with badass, and I think you have this song. Crisis City - Sonic Generations (Classic Version) I found the classic version of Crisis City to be funny - seeing cute little classic Sonic with his lighthearted beeps and boops he made when jumping and whatnot traverse the post apocalyptic terrain of Crisis City. The song, though, while slowed down from its Modern counterpart, is kickass. I find it to be a much darker take than the modern version, actually. I find it to be the better of the two, for sure, and I don't see it getting much praise. Sky Fortress Zone, Act 2 - Sonic 4, Ep. II This is bogged down by being in a bad Sonic game with one of the worst soundtracks in the history of the franchise. For that, I feel like it doesn't get the amount of recognition that it deserves. It's definitely the shining star in a rather mucky soundtrack, and being good when so much around you is bad doesn't make you look good in comparison, you know? Still an epic tune that makes this level almost enjoyable for me. Security Hall - Sonic Adventure 2 This is my favorite song from that whole game. It has a chilling, Bond-esque vibe to it and I think that just kicks ass. It's overlooked because people are trying so hard to traverse the fuckin' level that they can hardly notice the song itself, probably, but I think it deserves more recognition than it gets. SA2's soundtrack is one of the weakest in the series to me, but this one is one of the few I can listen to outside of the game. Honeycomb Highway - Sonic Lost World I actually never played Lost World, lol. I do love this song, though, and I don't hear a lot of people talking about it. It's one of the best songs to come out of the series that I've heard so far, and the fact that I've never seen anybody actually talk about it is reason enough for me to put it on here. It almost makes me wish I still had my Wii U so I could try to dig up a copy of Lost World and give it a shot. Almost. Question #30: If you had to combine the stories of any THREE Sonic games, which stories would you combine, and can you think of how it would work? Errr...fuck. I'm going to do terrible at this. I'd go 06, SA2, and Generations. The story would start off with Sonic falling from a helicopter into the middle of his birthday party, which just so happens to be during the stupid Soleanna festival thingy from 06. Due to the time traveling capabilities brought into play, they end up going all the way back to Green Hill Zone like at the beginning of Generations, but they hit a lot of unnecessary loading screens during the trip there. Then Sonic, Shadow, and Silver end up on some sort of race to the finish but they all jump at the wrong spot and the game glitches out, sending them all infinitely flying into the air until they hit Space Colony ARK. The game ends up being a lot shorter because the glitch caused them to skip most of the game and they end up facing off against the trifecta of Mephiles, Final Hazard, and former United States President George W. Bush. After conquering the evil trio, it's revealed that it was just a plot by Eggman to take over the world all along, but because so much of the game was skipped, much exposition was missed - like the pivotal scene where Elise was kidnapped for the 13th time - and then the final boss battle ensues and it's shown that Elise was actually Silver all along and it's never brought up in future games again because Sega wants to forget every single game they fuck up because it makes them feel like an inadequate company. The end.
  19. I bought this a while back, actually. I played an hour or so of it and it was good but nothing great yet - I want to see how much they add to it, though. It still feels very much incomplete but it also has a lot of potential to be great. Here's to hoping I don't get burned by early access :S
  20. I've never even heard of ScrewAttack before, but why should I be arsed to care about her when it seems that she's just regurgitating the most common criticisms with little personal thought for clickbait I mean, think about it, bashing Sonic will almost always = views and the first 20 seconds of her video is her talking about something to do with Ads and revenue and whatnot. Why should I care about this person when she's just extorting a gaming stigma against a series for cash
  21. Yeahh. It's one of my faves and I feel like I'm one of the very few who legitimately likes it. There's a lot of negativity surrounding it these days and it's pretty poorly regarded in general, from my experience. It didn't age well with the fans, y'know? Personally, though, I find it enjoyable because of the greatly improved Chao Garden, which is a huge step up from SA1's version, the Sonic/Shadow stages are great, and I'm one of the very few who found a lot of fun in the Treasure Hunting segments myself. I wasn't a big fan of the mech levels, admittedly, but this game gave me a lot to enjoy as a kid and when I revisited it years later I felt it held up for me rather well. I don't see it as being an inherently bad game, but I won't say it's the best that the series has to offer either. I dig it.
