    Whenever I see a tweet like this I feel like people don't get the point of the why folks get annoyed with Green hill zone being reused. 

  2. This your daily reminder that the Sonic Unleashed opening is the best opening in the series.

    what will he do

  4. Anyone hear that Dr. Phil thinks we shouldn’t be quarantined from COVID-19 simply because we don’t quarantine from every car, smoking or swimming death?

  5. Guessing game: what year is this post about Sonic from

  6. What's the official stance on Metal Sonic being able to speak? He obviously does in Heroes and the IDW comics, but otherwise in the games like Free Riders and TSR,  he's a muted and only communicates with some really pathetic bleeps and boops unbefitting of his role as a menacing figure. Apart from Generations, wherein Classic Metal Sonic actually has a few full lines of dialogue, albeit unvoiced ones.

    I'd like to see him either voiced again, or at least have his crappy sound effects replacing with better ones. 

  7. Can we talk about how Amy invited a literal robot on a picnic before Cream?

  8. A guy made a video where he would like to see a sonic spinoff character action game in the style of DMC and Bayonetta by Platinum games. IDK if this would warrant it's own thread or not since it's an idea I would like to see

  9. Barret gone from being cold to being a bro

  10. I still can't help but laugh at how lazy they were in Sonic Adventure 2, having Shadow's shadow (lawl) on the ceiling throughout the entire scene, even while he's still in that pod/capsule.

  11. Trying the Eyepatch Wolf video...why does literally every video about Sonic have to give us a summary of his debut as if there is someone on this planet who hasn't heard it about three-thousand times yet? Get to the fucking point buddy

  13. >The same people who made the weirdest most out there shit about Sonic...are now the ones running the series.

    I...don't know how to feel about this...

  14. I can feel my sanity slowly slipping away watching this Sonic video by Eyepatch wolf...I'm starting to think this wasn't a good idea.

  16. One change about the modern games that I hate is how they changed the air dash; it went from having actual momentum, to just moving you in a static position, and then they just got rid of it. 

  17. Is SA2 a bad game?

  18. New site update, but still no removal of the SAGE 2017 board.

  19. Somewhat related to my other status: do you think LGBT artists/content creators get more unreasonable shit and expectations thrown on them on social media, or do you think that’s all just exaggeration most of the time so they can feel “special” and “oppressed”, and in reality, they’re treated no differently than anyone else?

  20. Tbh I could actually see Shadow easily being mistaken for Sonic in-universe, BUT, only if he or both of them are in a dark room/ dimly-lit environment, but most of the time though, you just see them in bright or well lit areas so it just makes the surrounding people look stupid if they mistake Sonic for Shadow or vice versa. Also, controversial as the 4kids cast was, I think that Sonic and Shadow sharing a voice actor was a pretty smart call as well, as it only helped to sell how you could confuse the two even more, like if they were in said dark environment and they both started speaking to you at the same time.

  21. Okay, so I'm playing Colours for the first time in forever. Emulating it via Dolphin for the sake of practicality and to run it at a higher resolution, but I'm not using any mods. 

    My thoughts are so far as follows...

    Tropical Resort is kind of bad. Of the six acts, only 2 or 3 feel like proper levels and the rest are tedious platforming gimmicks or absurdly easy. Who thought that standing on switches to slowly move platforms was fun? Hunting for Red Rings is nice though. Unlike in Generations and Forces, I kinda feel like they're in sensible places here. Hidden, but findable. The 'proper' full length acts in Tropical Resort are more bland and forgettable than they are offensively bad. In any other game, you'd expect them to be a part of the optional tutorial. Also, the first boss is pathetic and went down in two hits. 

    Sweet Mountain is genuinely fun. I'm only up to Act 4, which is the first gimmicky act in the zone and involves a lot of "standing on switches and waiting". The zone as a whole is just enjoyable. Simple, but enjoyable. Pleasantly surprised. Even though there's a lot of 2D, the levels are fairly well designed.

    Sonic's movement in this game feels off. Something about the way Sonic carries momentum and the way that he turns (or rather doesn't when he's in the air) takes a lot of getting used to. The double jump helps considerably, but it feels like the double jump was added as a band-aid instead of solving the underlying issue. And at least it does something, unlike in Forces. Quick-stepping with the analogue stick is dumb. If the Wii didn't have enough buttons for it, it shouldn't have been included.

    Graphics are awesome. Yes, it's a Wii game, but this is probably one of the best looking Sonic games to date. Collectively, Unleashed and Colours really nail how Sonic games should look, each doing their own thing with regards to realistic and fantasy locations. Just for the record, Generations isn't far behind.

    Cutscenes and story are bad, not just from a dialogue point of view but also fro the view that just about nothing happens in any of them. Stand and talk, stand and talk, stand and make bad jokes, stand and talk... 

  22. ...I just realized the irony that so many people see Sonic as a "cartoon blue hedgehog for kids" when he was initially marketed as a hip and cool alternative to the "kid friendly" Mario. Times sure change. 

  23. Sonic Colours is a waste of good music and good art.

  24. Might make a topic about cast oversaturation in this series and how it can be addressed. 

    But I'll do that next week.
