1. Seems like every day now, I come to catch up on the Sonic Forces thread, eager to see what everyone is talking about that day.

    Then I start reading the conversation...

  2. I'm turning 20 in 5 days and I'm not happy about it. Not because I don't want to grow up, I actually do, but because I feel very immature so far, and at 20 I'll feel even worse about that.

      I love wearing pretty frilly dresses (despite my gender) at 26.

      Hey I go for broke. Like my wallet. ;A;

      Understandable as I was in your shoes 13 years ago. But looking back, your 20's is a time of opportunity and growing in several ways including mature-wise. I'm 33 and still feel like I have some maturing to do to be honest so please don't be so hard on yourself as you are still very young.

      You'll figure things out and to be honest per my observation I would never associate immaturity with you. I actually tend to think you're older actually. Just be reasonable and try to enjoy this time in your life while establishing things as you figure out what you want to do. While I won't say the 30's isn't necessarily bad it's a whole new ballgame, and I'd rather play the 20's one any day. 

  3. I've been taking a coding class from Upperline all this week, and it's pretty interesting. Who knew HTML and CSS are so easy to use! I could probably make a decent website by now! Probably not gonna help for my intended career path of video game development, but it's still very useful.

      Good for you! I agree, at their basic level HTML and CSS are quite simple. I think this is a valuable skill for anyone to have :)

    I think I'm starting to get it now. But do you ever have that feeling that you're missing something and you've been searching and searching and you can't figure out what it is? I think I might need to do a little studying. See how GOOD reggae is done

    1. Lucid Dream

      Isn't that what writers block is? Well, hopefully studying will resolve the issue.

  10. White straight middle class male: institutionalized discrimination isn't real, I've never seen it.

    Me: GEE I WONDER WHY

    seriously baffles me why this argument is still a thing that those guys try to tell us minorities, the ones /actually/ experiencing the issues, that those issues aren't actually there, and whatever is there is self made by us. I mean how distanced and in your own bubble do you need to be to not fathom that this country ain't as perfect systematically regarding its different groups. I mean honestly, when it's almost always white straight men discrediting and arguing our claims of inequality, be it LGBT, blacks, women, muslims, Hispanics, native Americans,etc. yknow there's a glaring flaw somewhere.

      It's easier to blame the victim than to admit there's something wrong with a system (and by proxy their own behavior shaped by the system) that only benefits the privileged.

  12. Did a mock interview for my career path. Was strongly hinted that I would have received the hypothetical job right then and there if it was the real deal. Just told that I needed to stop talking so fast and /too/ eloquently, and to take additional classes on the side and I'd be ready to go.

    1. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      Putting in the practice to being a strong interviewer is one of the single best things you can do for yourself. Getting your foot in the door is one thing, but if you cant sell yourself then the door will just keep swinging and hit you in the rear on your way out.

       

  13. The same old song and dance again aren't y'all tired of this by now just stop supportin and go find somethin else to be interested in lol

      I don't get it, yet I'm annoyingly curious lol

      PaulyBFromDa303

      Every fanbase has its supporters and its haters. Just like every society has their characteristics, and their evil doers. Unfortunately it's people like us that have to have the willpower to tolerate it

  14. So like is Tornado conservative or...?

    1. KHCast

      I'm just curious is all, not bashing, given his stance I've seen as of late

      For a second I thought you forgot to space your words lol. Huh interesting. Not many of those on here

  15. I get not being hyped but people trying to cultivate a negative atmosphere when at best it's just sorta half and half is dumb 

    1. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      Vocal minority exists even in a forum like this.

      There's only three or four people screaming as loud as they are in the Forces thread as it is, and they're already people with a history of...acting the way they do, let's call it.

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      It's just interesting seeing people already write off the game after 20 seconds of gameplay. We have absolutely no idea about how a whole other playstyle will work or even how the rest of that damn level plays out but it's already fucked for some.

      So yeah, SSMB is back in full function! Can't believe it's been 4 years since the LW topic opened up. XD

  16. So I've been listening to this You're Too Show podcast thingymajig and it's pretty neat!

    Really fascinated by their discussions especially with Underground and 06.

      iTunes is where all the mighty fine Sonic podcasts are at, get on the Opinion Zone train too if you just want some silly people talk about dumb Sonic stuff.

  17. If it's one thing I did like about the 2012-2016 era of Sonic, it was the near lack of Boost Discourse.

    1. Josh

      all ive remember since i've gotten here aside from tone discourse is boost discourse

  18. @Diogenes So is this how you've felt for the past 17 years...just no energy or life for Sonic and just wishing things were different as you slowly watch him burn himself into the abyss while you can watch helplessly and see people eat it up.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      well it was a slow process of hope and passion slipping away, with rare bursts of interest that would inevitably be squelched, and the growing realization that there would be neither redemption nor escape, but you're not too far off.

      mania looks cool though.

    2. Celestia

      Celestia

      "watch helplessly and see people eat it up."

      Imagine being that pretentious for 17 years, dang

    3. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      Mania is salvation. But we cannot escape the cycle of this hell. 

      I'm already a demon...

      @Celestia It's surprisingly fun, you should try it.

      Every fanbase has its own supporters and haters. Every society has its own characteristics. 

  19. I don't even really need to look at the Forces topic to know where the conversation is going. It's like everyone's reading off a script. 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Scratch that. It's turned into an improv comedy. 

  20. Lol the Berserk 2016 dub pronounces Farnese as "Far-nay-say" what the fuck

  21. Boy are people excited for Sonic Forces amirite :)

    1. Diogenes

      i'm excited to watch sonic die

    2. Blue Blood

      Dio is so hyped for boost that he's delirious.

    3. Soni

      Soni

      The future of Modern Sonic is fantastic, way better than the terrible Lost World and Sonic Boom! I want Boost in every game, the only reason Mania is gonna suck is because it has no Boost!

    4. Josh

      Josh

      There's honestly a fair bit of apathy surrounding this game outside of the sonic hype bubble it feels like. Not negativity though at least?

    5. Celestia

      Celestia

      Uh, I know I am, what are you on ab-*reads the last few pages of the thread* ah

    6. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      @Josh I mean, is apathy really worse than negativity.

    7. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I'm pumped. Hope it turns out Sonic Team refined the boost formula so it's more well-liked by the detractors.

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      There's not enough known so far, and the first impressions that SEGA have given seem to have been ill-advised. A lot of people will see the burning city and think of ShTH and '06, neither of which are liked. Alternatively. They just don't think it's the right setting for Sonic. And then when they finally show some gameplay, it doesn't look any different to past games and it's pretty tame. People aren't being given reasons to be very interested yet. 

    9. JmTsHaW

      JmTsHaW

      I'd rather have a burning city than shitty jokes about hygiene if you ask me

    10. Celestia

      Celestia

      Tbh the gameplay footage helped with any concerns I had with the whole burning city thing because it seems a lot less dreary in-game compared to the concept art. Not that I was particularly bothered before, but yeah. Won't deny it wasn't a well thought out first impression tho'.

    11. Shaddy the guy

      Shaddy the guy

      There's been little shown to get hyped over, but since we can basically expect it to be as good as Generations or Colors (assuming the third gameplay doesn't suck, which I admit is a big assumption), the "hype" is more likely to show up once we have a proper reveal and trailer.

    12. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I was so happy to see the location in the teaser last year, and even happier when we got footage recently that showing the game is still very colourful and even the city is in a GHZ style environment. But we're not Joe Public or the majority of gamers in this situation. 

  22. Reaction: You are now your fursona IRL.

      Nothing's changed, I'm already a hairy guy.

      Nothing's changed for me either because I don't have one

      Hmm... The only other people I can think of with that generic head mold and that beak/mouth area are Wave and Speedy. If it's not one of them then it's either not a Sonic character or I'm really stumped. If it's a Sonic character and you tell me, I'll probably immediately say "Of course. What's wrong with me?? How did I forget *insert character's name here*".

    4. Nepenthe

      It's a Sonic character alright- just an alternate form of one of them. =P
