    I've an idea for a story, but I can't write it

    If you want to get better, just write and don't question it, you'll naturally get better with time (I'm sure your familiar with the whole first, second and third draft thing...and that you don't show your first draft to other people) Otherwise, you might not need to write EVERY idea you have down...some ideas are better saved as just ideas, once you have the whole thing fleshed out in your head and know what you want to write down, then it'll be easier, but if your too spontaneous you might not feel motivated to finish till the end... (And yes I've taken online book writing courses so I have a bit of an idea of what I'm talking about...)

    Super sonic final boss ?

    Normally I'd agree with what most people are saying here and adhere to the "stick to one gameplay" mindset, but I'll have to disagree this once simply because having a random Shump level in the middle of a platformer type of game has been done well and has been well recieved in the past...AKA it makes for a good pace breaker if done right. ...And there lies the problem, I don't think enough attention has been given to SS to make it "done right". Sonic 3 and Mania do technically get it right, but even there it can stand to be made improved. If the core of sonic's appeal is learing to control a loose physics engine, why not contrast that with a stiff, yet well controlled Shump styled gameplay. Make sonic shoot lazers or something, design it like a fast paced Touhou game or something (of course you'd tone it down so that its not overbearingly difficult tho). Any real attempt to fix final SS battles would go a long way to its reputation, there's a lot of untapped potential here! ...Or you know...just not have final SS battles...that works too! :/

    I reviewed Sonic Pocket Adventure :)

    I watched the first minute and a half. Before I commit to watching more or giving half-ass feedback, I have to ask...why weren't the audio/editing issues sorted out before you released the video? (You seem to be pretty well aware of it) I'm not trying to patronize ya or tell you how to run your channel, just genuinely curious + plus I might be able to give advice in that regard as well. (Personally anyways I tend to find real life advice a lot more useable in the long run) If I commit to watching the rest I'll let you know what I think, best of luck!
  5. I preface this by saying I like Mephilis, but let me ask you this... Isn't Mephilis obviously more dark than those other villians? Nevermind the fact he looks just like Shadow and could very easily be confused with being a "fan OC villian" of sorts. If Shadow isn't completely accepted as being a "real sonic character" by a significant chunk of the fanbase...then how on earth could Mephilis be? (Also nevermind he only appeared in a game that a lot of people consider to be horribly writen if not down right insulting)

      LOL. Nintendo is Platinum's publisher. What did that guy expect to happen?

      I'd be more surprised if it ended up on a non-Nintendo anything.

      I don't really get console wars. Like I can get being annoyed that a cool game isn't on a console you own, but why clench your butthole in pure anger over it being on a different console, or whether it's graphics are slightly worse (but still overall great), or just because it's not purely part of some ultra hd 4k console alone...or something.

      I think most of the blame lies with SEGA for this, honestly. They didn't want to do more with Bayonetta and Nintendo had to foot the bill for the sequels. I mean, I'm happy getting a cool exclusive for my current system of choice, underpowered it might be, but it does bite nothing beyond the first game can be re-released anywhere else.

      I mean...I can kinda understand the frustration with nintendo, since they have to constantly buy back the licence when Bayo 2 didn't sell that well...

      Platinum tho? Beats me!

      You should be mad at Sony, bro. They wasted the perfect chance to publish Bayonetta 2 when Platinum was searching for a partner.

      Might as well post this too while I'm at it, it compliments to OP pretty nicely...

      Ever since Bayo hit Nintendo there have been people like this and it always makes them look incredibly stupid since the reason for them putting these on Nintendo consoles exclusively is a good one. Really wish these people would do their research before getting up in arms over a non-issue (though he is right about one thing, these games would be capable of tons more on more powerful hardware).

    14. Blue Blood

      The games would be capable of more, but I don't think anyone wants a repeat of Scalebound, right? Platinum and Nintendo have a good working relationship here, which isn't always the case. Bayonetta would have died in the ass if Nintendo didn't step in to save it.

       And honestly,  while not as powerful,  the most the hardware limitations really do for the Switch in effecting quality are graphics,  which can already look keen enough. 

      So long as the gameplay is fun and entertaining,  which is perfectly capable for the Switch,  I don't see much reason to lament a game that likely won't even look bad graphic wise.

      @JovahexeonXMAS Tron BonneWell here's the thing, when the initial Bayonetta was released (2009) it was met with a lot of praise for its graphics. Fast forward to 2's release and the reception was more of a "meh" in that department. 2 was basically re-using 1's graphical engine straight down to its 720p resolution and even then the game wasn't able to keep a solid 60fps to save its life.

      Now lets look at the Switch which isn't that much more powerful than the Wii U. I'll save my judgement until I actually see the game but I feel like 3's going to be reusing 2's engine which is already a clone of 1's. Assuming the game comes out in 2019, that would mean that the game is running on a 10 year old graphical engine complete with low resolution textures, limited gameplay environments, and not much in the way of effect details. All this being something a game like this greatly benefits from.  The best I can imagine them doing is reaching that solid 60fps with maybe an upscaled resolution from 900p or something.

      Like, I know not many people around here care about graphics to the extent that I do but when I put all this into perspective... yeah, Bayonetta 3 being exclusive to the Switch does sadden me a bit. Trust me, I fully understand that it was either this or nothing and I applaud Nintendo for picking up the pieces when no one else would but that still doesn't change my feelings on it.

      Though, I'll admit that this is all just speculation and I'd love to be proving wrong here.

      @JovahexeonXMAS Tron BonneI was talking more in terms of content (like more weapons, unlockables, stages, challenge missions, etc.) but then again, on further reflection platinum fit all they can into these games no matter the hardware and I doubt they'd wanna throw everything and the kitchen sink in at once anyway so your probably right.

  9. NickonAquaManga2 is actually making a 3D sonic Engine and 1 level with some of his colleges...its not done, but it has a lot of progress on it. At the rate its going tho, your better off just looking to GHP Act 2 and Utopia for your "go to" 3D sonic engines!
  10. MK has better aesthetics and story. SF has more in depth mechanics and is much more competitive. I'm not sure why this is a debate, I'm sure most people who know the ins and outs of both franchises can agree to this on some level...
  11. I say 2017 is a good year for Sonic...

    We got the best Sonic game of all time and a pretty dope meme game to boot! Like honestly, how can you complain with that?

    (Unless you don't give a s**t about 2D and want a SA3 esc game...eeeeh Whoops!)

      "best Sonic game of all time?"

      If you consider about five or six badly designed unfair bosses, some poor level design and half a missing story (am I talking about Mania or Forces:P) then that's not a very impressive "best Sonic game of all time."

      The king Sonic 3&K is laughing at you;)

      I'll admit the bosses aren't up the snuff...heck you could argue Sonic 3K as a whole has a much better difficulty curve. But in terms of everything related gameplay wise (the story isn't that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things) I say is significantly more better and self aware, since the game wasn't made in the 90's lol

      I am curious to know what levels in Mania you find to be "poor" tho... (as ironically I feel the same about a few Sonic 3 levels...)

    Where on earth are you getting this metric? I always found it the opposite for me. (Also saying "its shit bro lol" is perfectly fine, not in depth or anything but its a good way to say what you think quickly in 4 words so there's nothing wrong with it.)
