  1. Your viewing this the wrong way, I don't care if you would perfer if it worked that way, that's not the point I'm making. In your mind it should be that way but that's not nessesarily true. Unexpected =/= Cheap, it just means you didn't anticipate it. More so its less "defending" and more "attacking" on your part. Its just as 'weird" regardless of how you put it. Nevermind the fact this all makes sense in universe... And again, its not that black and white, you could notice the plane isn't keeping up with you and then quickly jump and tilt yourself back on, or you could recklessly die, either way the series of events in which you learn what needed to be learned is the same, both have there pros and cons but albiet its no a big deal either way you look at it.
  2. Just because a game doesn't hold your hand doesn't make it "poor design"! :/
  3. The PC version is the best because its the PC version and you can use a keyboard!
  4. So used to seeing spoilers for Mania I pratically forgot its a game I can ACTUALLY PLAY!

    ...oh boy I'm in for a treat! :D

  5. To anyone who thinks the Sonic fanbase is the only one with a "split" problem, think again...

      Ultimate tenkaichi was pretty much DBZ's 06, people started to much more negative about upcoming games until Xenoverse set things straight...

      Now DBZ fighter Z is finally addressing the more hardcore Budokai fans (alongside bringing in new MvC people) and of course a loud minority complains its not a freaking DBZ simulator instead of an actual fighting game...

      Not to surprising or anything, just felt like sharing this! :/

      I mean, you can be a fan of both XV and FighterZ.

      I am.

      I'm sure most people are, I think some people aren't though and a lot of people don't get that...

      Its not as bad as sonic by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought it was still worth bringing up.

      Whats weird though is that the Xenoverse side is acting like their type of games aren't still being made... like didn't Xenoverse 2 just get an update on top of the game just coming out?

    5. DiamondX


      The last XV2 update was 2 months ago and the game released in October last year.

      Yea, it's relatively recent. While I do like playing Xenoverse 2 with my lil bros from time to time, DBFZ is more up my alley, but I just live and let live, you know? I don't know why others find it hard to do that.

      Well, yeah. No fandom is free from split opinions. Even Mario fans get into odds with each other over preferring the sandbox 3D Marios (64, Sunshine) and the linear 3D Marios (Galaxy 1/2, 3D Land/3D World). There's also a lot of contention on whether SMB3 or SMW in particular is the best (2D) Mario title. 

      It's just that the Sonic series has taken so many differnet directions and questionable design decisions that it's one of the more pronounced examples of a broken fanbase.

  6. Just told some random kid on twitch that I'd buy him sonic mania...

    ...I'm wondering if I should go through with it! :/

      Well if you really want to, you might as well.

      If you don't want to, just go and tell him as such as soon as possible, just so he doesn't get his hopes up and dragged on for too long.

  7. You think that's bad? I once bumped into someone who thought Sonic was flat out sold to Nintendo (due to the exclusivity deal) and legit thought that LW was a sign that not even nintendo could do sonic right in 3D and thus desided to redo sonic via Sonic Boom... ...thankfully I was there (twitch chat, this was the streamer btw) to say that that was complete BS!
  8. That weird "hmmm" sound that the girl is constantly making is starting to worry me! :/

    1. Alienrun


      btw I changed my mind about the chat...its the best thing I've ever seen! :o

  9. I don't have anything to add, but I remember hearing him say during Sonic Heroes something to the extent of "We didn't make a Sonic Adventure 3 because we feared that only the hardcore fans would play it, so we wanted to make a sonic game with a more general feel." My initial reaction to that (and this which doesn't surprise me) is why not just make an SA3 that naturally tailors what's good about both series without sacrificing what's already been established for the sake of "generalizing your audience". It doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But yeah none of this surprises me, it would be cool if other people had more sources to interviews like this...
  10. Pretty on point, I think subconciously back when I knew very little about sonic and was trying to do research it, I naturally got more attention towards this game and just thought "This sucks...this isn't what a sonic 4 should be...they ruined it!" Case in point...not even nintendo did this. It's called "New Super Mario Bros." not "Super Mario Bros. 4". Nintendo can be overly innovative/ambitious from time to time, but they defenetely aren't cocky. Making a direct sequel/reboot with a lot of hype is how franchises end up dying. As I recall 06 initially wasn't getting that much attention, but that name and...welp we know how that turned out.
  11. Anyone here tired of taking shots at Sonic 4? Me neither... This was brought up to my attention some time ago... Some of you might know that "Sonic 4" was originally not going to be called Sonic 4 but rather "Sonic the Portable" If that's the case well...you might notice that you can see the words "Sonic the Portable" on the ferris wheel in the backround of this picture here, leaving me to ask the painfully obvious question...why? Why was this left in the final game? I can understand cutting corners to save money, I get why the game feels more at home on a mobile phone and that the iPad rotation makes more sense to use stiff physics, I get what this game was going for despite whatever radical changes (if any) had to be made to fit the bill of Sonic 4...but why would they leave this in? What logical reason is there to hint at the fact that this game was not meant to be Sonic 4? Did they not think that someone would be curious enough to Google "Sonic the Portable", find out what really happened and thus spread negative word of mouth across the internet to get people not to take this game seriously? I don't see any reason as to why they left this in, it doesn't make any sense in context, and I don't think any person on the planet would object to the ferris wheel saying "Sonic the Hedgehog 4" or just "Sonic the Hedgehog" (or even just sonic). (Sonic Mania makes reference to itself and noone cares...) I know this seems like such a little thing but, I don't get it. Did they just not care? Whoever was in charge of this just didn't notice? What actually happened? Secret Rings doesn't make reference to Wild Fire, Boom doesn't make reference to Synergy. Unleashed doesn't make reference to World Adventure! Does this further confirm that the title "Sonic 4" was nothing short of just a marketing gimmick that backfired? Or am I looking way too much into this? First time I heard of this and I want to know what you all think, even if its just a short 1 sentence thought, the more feedback the better!
  12. Yeah same...this is gonna do wonders for Any% Speedruns!
  13. Considering he took a few hours to figure this out...I'd say it doesn't need to be patched. None of this is obvious to a first time player.
  14. If anyone was ever wondering why the PC version was delayed...

      Don't wanna watch. What did it say?

    2. Strickerx5


      @A wreaking havoc engineIt's a pretty bad glitch (from one of the later levels for those avoiding spoilers)

      Yeah, this actually already happened to me twice on the Switch version...

      Hope they get those ironed out by the 29th. I have an odd feeling it's gonna get delayed again.

  15. It goes without saying that if what I detail doesn't apply to you, then I'm not talking about you. I was speaking from personal experience so sorry if I didn't detail that. (no need to take it personally though) If you consider yourself an exception or have found exceptional people to share your joy with, congrats, its none of my buisness...but congrats. Most communities by nature aren't very good, there are always exceptions to the rule though...I just figured that goes without saying. :/ (Different people feel differently about different communities lol, high horse or no high horse)
  16. I've been there too many times, it tears you apart, no thanks. Games are more fun when you don't give a crap what randos on the internet think, its all pointless really.
  17. I both love and hate how this has now become a Sonic Forces thread instead of a Mania one... Also @McGroose (and anyone else who is surprised by the reactions going on here) I'm pretty nutreal about this myself, not so much because the desicion is justifiable but because we simply don't have enough info to even make a proper reaction. Speculation is fine, but when its baseless I tend to lose interest. Its basically why I wasn't commenting, people have a right to complain about whatever they want and to whatever extent they want.
  18. This isn't true, especially if your used to recording something...
  19. Ah yes, that is very true. I can say its not as bad as here, for mainly 2 reasons: 1. The little issues are not as widespread towards casual fans And 2. Even admist all the arguing, Mario fans can generally agree that other games are "competant" or "have an identity" of sorts. (Its hard to argue that Mario 64 wasn't important to the gaming industry for instance. But yes...when you crack open their shell the Mario fanbase can be just as bad as other fandoms...same could be said about a lot of fandoms though so who knows for sure when looking at it comparetivily.
  20. Yeah, you'd think Mario fans would fight all the time because of how different all of there games are... ...but nope. NIntendo builds bridges and doesn't destroy them, they are in charge and who people look to for athority. (as weird as this is to say out loud.) I agree with all this though.
  21. Hence that warrents the hate, people want good games...its that simple, series it comes from be damned...
  22. Nothing wrong with being a purist, especially when you consider how horribly handled forces is right now... ...but nevermind that, lets ignore the fact that the new games are very different from the old ones and might turn a few people off, lets ignore that entirely!

      i'll have to wait until november or later to play mania, as (hopefully) i'll be getting my PS4 on mania's launch


  24. I know this is gonna sound really weird, but seeing this comment helped me calm down quite a bit, sometimes a bit of hyperbole from someone else can help put things into perspective lol
  25. Well at least one good thing came out of the Mania delay...598df93d8b19c_copypastamaniapreorderedition.thumb.PNG.cb82f91d536250015a57ddc61a1384d3.PNG
