It seems the Brazilian voice actor of Amy Rose on Sonic Boom has passed. Among other of her works seems to be Toph from Avatar, Ahsoka from Star Wars, Sam from iCarly and Peppa Pig.
ok then, SEGA Europe
Slowly walks out of the room
I'm going to be honest, but I'm not hyped for Sonic Colors remastered. 😕
I mean... the game is "only" 10 years old. On PC the game is beautiful on Dolphin and nonetheless, a port or even just an emulated version from Wii seems better and cheaper for me (and SEGA). This, especially, if they take in favor Sonic Colors and scrapped the Adventure Remakes. This does make me a lot disappointed as, for me, I don't see any reason remaking Adventure isn't more profitable/logical than Colors.
Also, not mentioning I'm not a big fan of Colors either. Waaaay to many acts for not much captivating levels and especially, the game which made the 2.5D gameplay almost default for the series, which is probably what I most hate in new games. And I still haven't mentioned the Wisps, but these are actually one of the least bothering parts for me, but I'd remove them if I could.
And if it wasn't enough, ugh... I just want a decent 3D game with no major 2.5D sections. Or the game be 2.5D already creating me this expectation, or its better be full 3D. Last but not least, I really hope that's not the 30th anniversary game, which is pretty nonsense (maybe Colors 10th, so that's ok).
Edit: Ok, BS talk about SA Remake, that was from 2015, not upcoming. Sorry!
In the eyes of the North American general public, Colors is probably the least controversial 3D Sonic game. I mean, sure, the Sonic Adventure games were formative for a lot of us, but they get pilloried in many other circles due to their controversial gameplay elements, and because of that, it would be hard to full-on remake them without annoying some chunk of the fanbase in the process. SA1 in particular is very "relic-of-its-time."
Well, RIP Truesonic1 channel, a.k.a. "That crazy fan who uploads tons of Sonic music to YouTube." on his own words.
Okay, why the hell would Atlus Japan be ruffled up over someone posting music from Sonic, who they don't even own (unless I'm missing something)???? This move is at complete odds with Sonic Team themselves, who are rather forgiving of fans who post Sonic content online and use his likeness without their approval, on top of Mania. What say does Atlus have in any of Sonic Forces other then, what, those Persona DLC costumes?
Ugh... today probably was the worst April 1st, if not the worst day of my life. I really wish I was joking, but for a day I was planning on staying far from the internet and dive full on nostalgia and play old games, mourning the pass of my father definitely wasn't on the plans😭. Nonetheless, I usually love LEGO's April Fools post:
Welp... I wish that was an April 1st joke, but my dad passed away...
Wait... let me see if I get this "Mario dies on March 31st" thing right.
- Nintendo gives players 1 year to play classic games through compilations
- Nintendo removes these games 1 year later
- Nintendo also have a strong anti-piracy politics
I'm not sure if I ever mentioned this, but it amazes me that all the past 3 movies I saw when theaters were still a thing (other than Star Wars) had the same composer: Junkie XL
- Tomb Raider (2018)
- Alita: Battle Angel (2019)
- Sonic the Hedgehog (2020)
And if that wasn't enough, he also had some minor importance on my current favorite genre Trance and even have a collaboration with one of my favorite bands.
Definitely a name I would like to have some deep talk.
First all, thank you everyone for posting, and I agree with everything here as well each post seems to complement each one. Something pretty curious, if you ask me, because even some of my most detailed Reddit posts never got this much interaction. As many of you mentioned, the 00s really seemed to be the peak of the internet, despite I just used mainly during the early 10s. Ah, staying the whole morning playing LEGO Flash Games... Another thing I just remembered moments later after I finished posting the post, is around Captchas. It's funny once as a very kid I thought they were kinda cool, like a mini video game in the mid of doing something serious like creating an account. But I think these days it also resonates around the idea of the thousand bots which are around, and likely the trend is to have even more and more complex captchas to avoid bots to do their stuff. Other than that, I find more surprising that you guys commented more regarding the "human" part of this rather than the big enterprises and greedy AIs. It's funny and seems quite magic that, between the moment I posted this, not even 3 days, I recently accessed my Facebook app and no annoying ads appeared! It really makes me surprised if it has something to do with this topic, the same way I was experimenting Private Navigation and somehow was still tracked and suggested on my normal browsing. But yeah, I don't have many experiences to share with other social medias because other than SSMB, Reddit, barely Facebook and some minor old school forums, I don't have any big activity. Now I wonder being born in the early 2000s, something made me feel that forums were a more comfortable ambient than most social media (Really, my FB account is newer than my SSMB one by about 2 years, yet my first forum account was like, early 2015?) Closing up, at least I'm glad that Internet at least made me connect with people from places I sometime never heard of and also made me more interested on a few subjects I was never much interested at first. I do think how ironic sometimes feel that my father, for example, would have died to live in a world with established internet around his teens, meanwhile I'm not too far from wishing I was born, perhaps, 10-30 years earlier.
Today makes 1 year I'm stuck home. Happy birthday quarantine?
Quite a few: LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga Revisiting my childhood, despite the game is more different from LEGO SW: I and II than I expected. I'm about 80% complete but seriously considering to give up as now it just becomes more and more level replay (which I already played every level 2 times already). Still, great game and pretty nostalgic. I don't really miss the Sequels part despite being very excited for the new version. Mini Metro This one is a fun story. But doing a recap of the last few days. The game went free for mobile around the time the pandemic was just beginning. Recently, I've been very lazy and spending lots of time scrolling Facebook and playing mobile games and I got addicted to it. I already bought the game for PC about 2 years ago, so now I'm spending some minutes of the day playing it (It's a quick game, like 10/20 min at most). Yoot Tower Ah, the nostalgia. This one is a very classic for me. Despite playing it, once now and never since 2015, I finally decided to dedicate some time and for the first time since then I've built a decent tower. I'm also currently thinking on installing a The Sims game, I'm just not sure which one: 1 is nostalgic, 2 is the best one from those I have and 4 is abandoned on my Origin account (and have some cool Star Wars stuff).
I know quite a few, but I'm not going to remember them right now. But the most recent I've found was, while playing LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, if you try to hit Leia with Lando Calrissian, he kisses her hand: In fact, that entire sub is dedicated to this kind of stuff, so definitely worth checking out if you want to find more.
Well... here I go rewriting this topic after I lost everything... This is a subject which has been interesting me recently, and knowing it has some popularity, I decided to write a topic. I've been wandering through the internet almost as long as I can remember, but I can state since 2011 for sure. Of course that's not even near to what some of you have been around, and I wasn't even born since TSS was created, but that's definitely enough to catch some great changes. While on the subject, I don't think I'll talk about the quality of posts, memes, reposts, videos, etc, but mainly the way we use internet these days, or should I say... the way internet use us? I'm pretty sure you once considered giving up everything and, if not the whole internet thing, at least some social media. One of the best examples is Facebook. It has been over 6 months since I last opened it on my PC browser, but lately I've fallen into the temptation of the mobile app, and while it's been about a month I've been doing this, I can't even compare how trashy it was compared with the PC version (when I used AdBlock). Lots of suggestions of things you are not even interested in, cringe ads, and the worst for me, ads in the middle of the video. I can't count how many times I gave up watching a video just because after 1 min or even 30 seconds an ad came in, and I wasn't fully interested on the video, and just continued scrolling. This would be quite ok if it wasn't a page I wasn't following, but even pages I've started following the day I created my account and could give my life for that brand, an ad come and make me rage-quit. (And even things I could possibly interest and accepting suggestions, I've never received an ad) Of course many of you'll say "oh, but the enterprise needs money to continue operating" or "just add an AdBlock" (I really wish I had this option for mobile). So I started reflecting Do the internet really is a safe and fun place at all? Do you really like being annoyed on your free time to receive ads, help other enterprise boost their sales, have your data tracked, be annoyed with "suggestions" of things you are not even interested in, all this without your own consent? This was when I came to the conclusion that I don't think I'm more than 20% happy with our current internet. Things which before were the standard, now require you to go down 7 layers in the options menu to disable it. Despite I don't even liked it at all, but I think it's impossible to not mention it when talking about this subject, the documentary "The Social Dilemma" does a great overview in this subject, despite I really think it was very boring, repetitive and didn't bring me up any information I didn't know about. Moving up, another thing I believe many of you are certainly tired of are YouTubers/influencers/reaction videos. Of course there are a minor parcels of them who does great stuff, but the simple concept these receive more money than teachers or medics on our current society is enough to make me pissed. Similarly, and as I'm getting near and nearer to start working, one of the things which also irritates me, is how simple today is to receive notifies from your school/work/college while resting. You're in the middle of your vacations when you receive the news your salary will be reduced. Sunday morning, your boss ask you to do a "simple" task which in the end won't even be added to your salary... ugh. All this to not mention on how we are being manipulated by the big medias and bipolarizing the world. For example, news without reliable sources or just being sent to a certain pattern of persons. I even have the feel that, if the world is a story written by someone, we completely lost the track of it since 2014. So yeah, this is almost common knowledge: WE are the product. In these past days I've been really annoyed with this and disabling most options on my most used programs, apps, accounts, changing search engines, uninstalling apps... I'm curious. Am I the only annoyed with this? Why didn't no one moved forward to change our current internet? This is just a simple example, but I think we can easily say how many things we "lost" just because of the greedy of a very few: Quality internet, quality social media, quality news, quality music... and the list goes on.
Personal Reminder of the day: STOP POSTING YOUR UNPOPULAR OPINION ON REDDIT!
No, serious, I really should stop formulating comments for every Reddit post I see (even if I don't actually post them at all), and I need to remember to be less confident because posting an unpopular opinion will surely end in downvotes, even if say 'I know I'll be downvote to hell but...'
SW: Republic Commando coming to PS4 and Switch!
Just sharing, I don't have a PS4 or Switch. Considered buying this one for PC once.
Today celebrates 1 year I made my Reddit account.
Hm... I know this has nothing to do with SSMB and is weird to say a social media was a life-changing experience, but it's hard to deny it.
I really had a bad image of Reddit on my mind, but ended up really enjoying the journey so far. I always heard "those people are toxic" and this really depends on the community and is more likely to you rethink your communities.
Other than that, I also can't deny I considered some good times on quitting it, especially how time-consuming it is. Like, I doubt I haven't accessed that website a single day since then. And worse than that, probably 2 to more hours almost every day.
I really should rethink my life.
But yeah, really worth for not feeling a complete idiot outside the world reality and especially interact with people like me.

1 and a half months visiting this website daily, and just now I noticed the copyright still says 2020
I really just can't judge because my dead website still says 2018 🤷♂️
Finished Sonic Mania! That was though...
With this closing the main classic era games!Spoiler
Not sure what I'll do next: Finish here, finish with the other characters, move up to Adventure Era or explore a bit more the classic era.
I've been considering Flickies Island too, and probably what I'll go next, since we have the DX and I have it on Steam, despite I really believe it will be a hard and boring journey.
Sonic R is also no surprise for me, I already finished it recently in under a week, don't mind doing again.
Similarly to 3D Blast, moving up to the Adventure Era games really start getting longer, and I start projecting a month of play, which I'm not really sure if I have that much of time available. Also considering just do only the Sonic campaign onwards, even if its start differing from the others and back when I have time available.
It's really an open world of games now, I even considered doing the 8-bits since I've never finished them and even Pocket Adventure, but as I said, I'm really not sure, I'll probably end going for a few favorites or which I'm interested and never played and then make a check-list of those I've already played.
Sonic: *Completes Five*
SEGA: Remember Green Hill Zone?
Took me a while for this one, but just finished Sonic 3 & Knuckles!
Now I believe I'll go for Mania (Normal Mode). Then I'll decide if I go for Adventure Era, try some classic era spinoff, the master system games or even replay these games with other characters. Until then, this is the historic:
Today marks one year since I watched the Sonic Movie!
I just spend 20 min thinking my computer was still updating, just to find out it was in stand by mode.
Do you expect a new redesign, even a slightly one, for Sonic 2?
Honestly, I'm still too traumatized, but I believe I'm open for dialog.
