  1. The Game Gear Micro seems like an "objectively" terrible idea, to an almost cartoonish extent...but I still kinda want one, ngl.

  2. I'm honestly really impressed how you're relatively close to Penders' design but it actually looks good. Quite good, in fact.
  3. I'm stunned that the Game Gear Micro isn't a joke.

  4. The banner for me right now: "See ya in SA3, Sonic"

    Oof

      Got that one earlier too. It's got to be an older banner than many of our members now.

  5. The Superman film serials from the late 1940s are quite entertaining (though of course cheesy).

      Not the same thing but the Fleischer animations are still top tier Superman media. I'm not even much of a fan of Superman and still like them.

      I like those quite a lot too.

  6. Man, the level design for Sonic Advance seems to really go downhill starting in Angel Island Zone...

    1. VisionaryofSUPER

      Funny, because that stage is all uphill.

    2. Harkofthewaa

      And that downhill slope dosen't stop between games either.

      Yeah the last third or so of Advance 1 is pretty balls

      If you play it on what the game calls easy mode it takes away some of the more bullshit obstacles and enemies.

      I'm not big on the level design in most of the game honestly, though the first Zone's pretty good. It's kinda like Sonic 1 in that way, even if I really like that game in comparison.

      I'm of the mind that the Advance series is much better after the first playthrough when you've learned where the most dangerous/stupid obstacles are placed. Then again the same could be said for a lot of games.

      This is coming from someone that's unlocked Amy in Advance 2 and got all the Emeralds in 3 twice. Some might consider me a lunatic.

    7. Celestia

      I can agree with that with regard to Advance 1 (don't have much experience with 2) and Dimps' later games at least, I remember 3 being the peek of their bullshit tho'. I enjoyed it at the time but I'm not sure if I even want to revisit it.

      Everyone talks about that one block in Route 99 they got crushed by once even years after it happened lol.

      @Maxtiis What, you don't think I'm enough of an epic gamer to do normal mode?? (jk.)

  7. Started playing Sonic Advance for the first time yesterday. I quite like it so far.

    1. Blue Blood

      Advance 1 is pretty alright. Totally unremarkable, but a nice time nonetheless. Hope you enjoy it.

      Good luck finding the Special Stages though.

      And even gooder luck figuring out their idea of 3D and depth perception.

    2. Monkey Destruction Switch

      I hated the one Special Stage I accidentally found for exactly that reason, lol. Straight-up trash. I don't plan on trying for a good ending anytime soon...

      Advance 1 is ok! I personally prefer the other two.

      But forget emeralds exist. they just

      dont

      exist

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Advance 2 has the worst method is Special Stage entry conceivable, which is a shame cause those stages are actually really good fun.

      I love Advance 2 but those SP Rings can die on a fire

      I tried getting the Leaf Forest ones and it took me 2 HOURS to get them all, and when i did, I failed, and had to do it AGAIN. I am NEVER getting the emeralds in these games. I will find a save file or cheat to get them all, cuz they are atrocious.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      If you use a guide to get you through the stages, it can actually be rather fun. I got all the Emeralds as every character in Advance 2, and had memorised the locations of SP Rings in one act of every zone in order to do so. Forgot them all like a day later. I'm never doing it again ever, but if you really want to get into it you actually can enjoy it.

      I will make this a life goal then lol

      Advance 1 is if like someone didn't *quite* understand the appeal of Sonic 2, but was technically proficient enough to replicate it nearly perfectly. Like Sonic 2 as reconstructed with AI neural networks.

       

       

      I greatly prefer Advance 2, but Advance 1 is still pretty good

      I don't know how you are playing the game, but I highly recommend using a Code Breaker code to get all the Chaos Emeralds if you can. Even if you manage to locate the Special Springs, the depth perception is so odd that I've never been able beat the final Special Stage. I hope you have a better time then me if you decide to gather the Emeralds legitimately.

      One very odd design choice is if you you've beaten the game, have all the Chaos Emeralds, and use the level select to go directly to the Final Zone, you don't get to play the Super Sonic boss - you just get the normal ending. The true final boss is only unlockable if you start the game from any Zone before Final Zone.

      There is also a Cheat Code that let's Tails follow Sonic around like in Sonic 2 and 3. I wish that would've been an option in the game itself, but I'm glad the option exists in some form. The Super Sonic boss won't be playable while this cheat is active.

  8. This just happened to me on desktop. It fixed itself eventually, but still frustrating.
  9. Fun fact: Dead bodies are often put into graves.

      This is a spoiler for that show, Lost. Right?

  11. I don't think I know enough about music to give much detailed advice, but I'm definitely intrigued by the concept and interested to see where you go with it.
  12. I'm still working out the details in my head, but an Archie Sonic headcanon I have is that there are multiple multiverses and the post-reboot continuity actually existed alongside the original continuity as the "prime dimension" of a different multiverse. The original continuity was never erased; instead, the Super Genesis Wave almost caused the two multiverses to be merged together, but they ended up being saved by [insert reason here] (I might write a fanfiction about it eventually). As a side effect, this almost-merger temporarily imprinted the essences of the original continuity denizens onto their post-reboot continuity counterparts, hence the whole "dual memories" thing.
  13. Yes, I totally agree. It's always very fun and satisfying to pull off stylish and "cool" moves in Sonic games, but it's even better when you're recognized for doing so. The constant exclamations of "Jammin'," "Awesome", etc. on the screen accompanied by an increase of score is the sort of thing I think future Sonic games could benefit from.
  14. Time to get Up!

    Mobile site statuses praise

    Lowest grossing media franchises

    I bought no Sonic games for my Mega Drive

  15. It's quite cool you implemented the drop dash, and I really like how the 3rd act of Underground Zone looks. One thing I will say is that the scrolling checkerboard in the title cards is pretty hard on the eyes.
  16. I currently own Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic Spinball. (If that seems random, it's because those are what came with the Genesis lot I bought off eBay.) Hopefully I will own all of the official games on Genesis someday (except that I could live without Sonic Compilation since it's just, you know, a compilation). I even hope to own a 32X and Knuckles' Chaotix, even though that game isn't very good! (I love the characters it features and the aesthetics, so I guess that's why I want to buy it.)
  17. I think I recognize your name from some sprite sheets I looked at when I was a kid. Happy b-day.

  18. Probably the main thing is to make the text box background more opaque.
  19. I love this idea and I think the designs are nice overall, but I think you need to work on the readability of the text, both on the cards and the website.
  20. Can't go wrong with the King of Pop. Especially his amazing live performances, which are a treat for the eyes as well as the ears.
