  1. In other news, and possibly the thing people are least hyped about the stream, as a coin collector, that Sonic silver coin is dope af:

    Shame it's Silver/Gold, so that will be inaccessible for many. A Nickel/Copper coin would be awesome for me (Probably there are a condition on numismatic on why this is invaluable, but I personally, don't care).

    Oh, the country is Niue. They are known for adding geek stuff to their currency; Star Wars, Harry Potter, Pokémon and now Sonic, it seems. Noice.

      Sourly missed opportunity to put Tails on the tails side of it

  2. Seems I wasn't the only one who noticed the similarities between Classic and Modern Sonic, as well the 3D/2D perspective. As bad as this can sound, a game where you play with modern sonic in 3D and with the press of a button you become classic Sonic in 2D?
  3. Ok, quick post as I'm hurried. Sonic Colors Ultimate has been confirmed for Epic Games Store (PC), but NOT Steam. Does this mean their 10 years partnership has ended? Will new games be released on Epic from now on? Will the new Sonic Game (Sonic Zao/Zap/2ao) be released solely on Epic Games on PC? Is this likely the release place of Sonic Origins Collection on PC? Which are your overall thoughts? I have accounts on both, but only buy via Steam. I don't have much problems with Epic, though that's pretty bad assuming how used I was with Steam, nonetheless, this could affect SEGA's sales according to the user preference on the platform. Which are your thoughts?
  4. Sonic Colors Ultimate is coming at Epic, not Steam!

  5. And I will be busy during the stream...

    one more reason to get anxious during my test face-to-face with my teacher.

  6. Damn, Sunday Evening Depression hit me in full today.

    And this week promises to be shit.

    Finished Sonic 3 & Knuckles with Knuckles for, I believe, the first time.

    I think I can now safely assume S3&K is my favorite Sonic game. It impresses me how many alternate paths I must never have gone just because I keep following always the same level path.

     

    1. Blue Blood

      Good going. Knuckles has always been my favourite character, so I beat the game with him first as a child and tend to favour him for his slightly but significantly more difficult routes and bosses. It bugs me that Mania offers so much less incentive to use different characters. 3K is King.

      I still haven't stopped to think if I like more Sonic, Tails or Knuckles. I'd probably say Tails because I like his gameplay style as well as a character. I have to admit I was (for some reason) expecting a game a little more different from Sonic or Tails. In the end it was like playing with a different skin and a few more abilities. But I admit I suffered a lot with difficulty in Sandopolis and Lava Reef.

    3. Blue Blood

      I dislike Tails personally. He had very few unique routes to take advantage of, and his flight ability is so slow. Knuckles gives you a significantly different path to take in at least one act of every zone (apart from FBZ). His jump is only slightly weaker than the others', but it really negatively impacts his ability to deal with certain obstacles. And the tweaked bosses really do make a difference. Tails is just... Sonic without the highly useful insta-shield/shield abilities, and a vet clunky flight system. Knuckles gliding meshes much more with the core moveset, and his unique routes really encourage using it.

      Sonic 3 & Knuckles is a great Sonic game, it's one of my favorites as well, though I havn't replayed it in a while. I'm not sure if I prefer this or Sonic 1... in recent times I discovered that Sonic 1 is very nice to replay because of its simplicity; compared to S3&K it does not have cutscenes and its special stages are more ability and less puzzle... it's clearly a much simpler game but it can be very fun. S3&K does have a lot of depth and content, it's great in every aspect, but I don't like Blue Sphere that much, and all the cutscenes and bonus stages I don't know, there are a lot of moments when you have to stop and wait, or do minigames before you can continue with the main quest (I know that the minigames are optional but they give you bonus stuff so it's convenient to do them). They are all good but for me they remove a bit of replay value... it's still an excellent game, and at the end I would probably say I like it more than Sonic 1, but they are very close for me; Sonic 1 is underrated.

      It's just Sonic 2 that I dislike; excluding a few nice levels (Aquatic Ruins is my favorite) most of the game is a pain to play for me, especially if I want to get all the emeralds, those special stages 😠.

      Since we are there, my classics chart is: 3&K>1>>Mania>>>CD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>2 (but if we add the 8-bit games, Sonic 1 8-bit would be at least a tie with 3&K if not above it at all, I freaking love that game despite its flaws and hardware limitations).

      A final comment: as I said, I haven't played it in a while, but I remember liking the Sonic 3 side more than the & Knuckles one. I should definitely replay it though.

      Yeah, it still holds above Mania for me. There's more of a through line with cutscenes that give you a sense of how the zones are connected to each other. That's more palatable to me then Mania hand waving it with teleporting shenanigans.

      Blue Sphere is easily my favorite Special Stage. There's no honest timeout scenario and that gives it some real potential as a sub game, and I do really enjoy games within games. So the mini games are a boon for me.

      I think I share a similar opinion to @Iko, except for the fact I blame S3&K "complexity" due to the advancements of the time, like no one ever has seen something like that before. I honestly, enjoyed a lot of playing Sonic 1 and definitely wasn't expecting to have that amount of fun. Perhaps S3&K is more polished and well done, while S1 is just more fun to play. I do agree Bonus Stages (S3&K) can be a pain in the ass and I got like, 3 unlucky streaks and exit with fewer rings than when I entered, so by mid to late game you just avoid bonus stages or "suicide" on them.

      While Mania also have the polished and modern argument with it, I think I disliked it more than Sonic 1 and 3&K because when you play them back to back, it just feels more and more of the same. Also agree with @Cuz, the transitions seems way too forced. I may be wrong, but a few parts of the levels had the same structure and if not, the same Special Stage spots. Blue Spheres as Bonus Stages suck (In fact, even the last few Super Emerald SS in S3&K are annoying). The Encore version is pretty fine, ngl, but the fact they literally missed the opportunity to make a Casino Night bonus stage, it's almost an unforgiven thing.

      I used to like Sonic 2, but then playing back to back my impression with it really lowered down. I sucked a lot in Oil Ocean/Metropolis/Wing Fortress and in the end I stressed myself more than had fun.

      I haven't played much of the 8-bits that much (except for Chaos), but my rank would be something like:

      S3&K >> SCD > S1 > SM >>> Chaos > S2

  8. I don't think I've ever shared this here, but recently I'm in love with Lounge/Ambient/Bossa Nova music. These are some of my favorites: Fun fact: The singer of this one is Sandy Cressman, the same singer of Sonic Boom and some Sonic CD back vocals.
  9. While this might not be the main point of the topic, but I love that Sonic have lots of great games, and it's easily my franchise with the best game content out there. I just don't really get why fans don't seem to value this and instead keep mocking the bad games. Sonic 1, 2, CD, 3&K, Adventure, Riders, a bit of the GBA games and a bit of Heroes and Unleashed, Generations, SASRT and Mania. These are up there with my favorite games ever, top 50 for sure (And why not 3&K my favorite of all time?). So as much ironic this might sound like, I still like Sonic because of its quality. I also like the character personalities, like how easy it is to recognize Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Eggman the same way you can relate with their ambitions/desires. I also really enjoy the series mostly tries to keep family friend (ahem, Shadow the Hedgehog), and the only time they didn't, it hadn't ended well.
  10. The fact there are countless proofs we have a more and more anxious population, and yet it seems enterprises and society just don't seem to a give a fuck it's pretty shameful in my opinion.

    I've just watched my Communication teacher say "You can't say on your job interview you're anxious as a defect because that's pretty cliché, the same way if you are asked 'Do you work well under pressure?' [and while definitely that's a big no from me] you are obligated to lie and say yes".

    No surprise it seems society just seem to keep going down hill 🤷‍♂️. I wonder if there's any petition, change, or project I could sign/help/support to change this scenario, it just feels unacceptable for me.

      If only people were free to be honest on what their concerns are, and not forced to keep their employers in the dark to keep a good impression, all because our economy is too lazy to give themselves system the flexibity to provide employees postion they can be confortable with, and therefor better productive.

      This secretive driven process is the same reason why so many corrupt and wicked people have made it so far up our society-- and thus so many get ratted out with alligations over social media. If these industries gave a rat's ass about learning what these people truely are, maybe this wouldn't be happening as much

       

      And here I thought Knowledge was Power. But clearly to these creeps, Ignorance is Bliss.

      It's harder to sell useless crap to happy people, so there's a perverse incentive to keep people anxious. The best examples of this are all the victim blaming self-help books and fad diets that insist you can achieve happiness if you do everything they say. If you don't achieve it, you just weren't trying hard enough. Git gud (and buy more of our stuff).

      Personally, I'd like permission to be anxious. It's harder to solve problems if you have to pretend they don't exist.

  11. Ugh, and I just stopped to think. I really don't mind the game to be delayed to 2022, but I surely would be sad if its Colors remake which is something I have almost no interests. Hopefully another original game is announced together, even if just a simple mobile game, but this would imply that's less time for both to be properly made.

      I highly, highly doubt the Colors remake is the only game planned for the anniversary.

  13. Can we take some minutes to appreciate Lava Reef Act 2 music?

    What a beautiful tune :stars:

  14. One month since my father passed away. Who could guess where I'd be now this time one year ago? Ugh, in January I was on a completely different reality.

    "We seem to have reached the age where life stops giving us things and starts taking them away" - Dean Charles Stanforth, 2008, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

    I just didn't expect that could be so young 😔

      You're going through a terrible time dude, and 1 month isn't very long to get used to it all things considered. I hope that you don't find it patronising when  I say that that things will get better. Because they absolutely will. You're young, and life won't stop giving.

  15. Ok, how stupid should I feel that after 10 years of being a Sonic fan, just now I realized that Sonic, Tails and Knuckles are the color they are to match the primary color scheme?

      Are they? I thought it was just a coincidence.
