    Just a reminder everyone that Playstation's State of Play is later today. The times and stream locations are in the above Tweet. Also Canadian Guy Eh will be streaming it as well on YouTube & Twitch if you want to check that out.

  2. Today, in making fun of TV Tropes, take a look at the Dead Rising Wii page.

     

    Marvel at the contortions the authors took to try and make it sound like it was actually comparable to the 360 one; even jumping into a diatribe about how it shouldn't be called a port but a conversion.

      Linear missions mean it’s an adaption extension I guess?

  3. I just found out all of the My Hero Academia openings and endings are on Spotify. 

    I know what I’m listening to for the rest of the day.

      Except for Season 1's ending.

  4. does anyone else feel like the best sonic games are the ones that feel kind of lonely 

    like there's huge expansive levels/world s (comparing to mario for example) and sonic (or whoever it is) is traversing it basically alone playing around, eggman and sonic don't really interact, they just fight and that's it

    i think that's very unique. my favorite levels ever like egg rocket or stardust speedway past are the ones that bring this feeling the most 

    1. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      I can understand that sentiment since I've found myself yearning of late for a game that is kind of a fusion of Sonic and Journey where you're primary goal is just to use Sonic's abilities to get from point A to point B. Of course though I also see Sonic as a loner and drifter who happens to get along well with people despite being an introvert and relish his adventures of whimsy, wonder, and amazement as he seeks out new experiences and thrills in his ever unique world.

  5. Sonic Heroes is average.

    It's not good, but it's not bad.

    It's fine, harmless, plain.

     

    My only complaint is TEN MINUTE STAGES, WHY IS IT LIKE THIS

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      By the time you reach the last few levels of the game, you'll wish that they were only 10 minutes long. Because holy fuck Mystic Mansion and Final Fortress never seem to end.

    2. JezMM

      JezMM

      Final Fortress is definitely the worst, because there are like 3 checkpoints and, to my memory, they're at the 1 minute, 4 minute and 9 minute marks.

      And that eighth minute is the hardest =D

    3. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      The only part about final fortress I hate is dealing with those giant robots with the helmets

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      To me they just felt right and meaty. If anything the 3 minute stages we get now feel short.

    5. Soniman

      Soniman

      These days we can't even get a stage half...he'll a QUARTER of that length. I miss those days 

  6. Hey, check these out:

     

  7. 8 or so years ago when I came here Sonic Heroes was already unpopular around here but now I think it's got to the point where I think it wouldn't be far off to say even 06 is seen in a better light nowadays loool

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      When I joined the online fanbase back in 2002/3, Dimps were the authority of making good Sonic games, and they had recently released a fairly decent and adequate Classic styled game in Advance 1.

      Then came 2010 and Sonic 4...

    2. Soniman

      Soniman

      God man you're ANCIENT 

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      Everyone was high off generations and overhyping the shit out of Lost World when I joined. 

      Set the tone for the next 6 years pretty well

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @SonimanIn the Sonic fandom, we prefer the term "Classic". 

    5. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      'O6 is obviously more of a trainwreck and yet I still enjoy it more than Heroes.

      As for when I joined in early 2012;  we'd just had Taxman's Sonic CD where the physics were improved on over the original, Gens where the classic Sonic physics sucked and we were getting hype...heh for episode 2 of Sonic 4 and we already knew the physics would suck.

    6. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      I joined around Lost World, where despite everyone's excitement for it, I had a lot, and I mean a LOT, of skepticism... Once it turned out to be average as heck, I must be honest, I wasn't surprised.

      Then I came across the Sonic Boom announcements. That's all I need to say about that.

       

      Of course, this is only the time I joined this community. I've been roaming around for a lot longer than that.

    7. Ferno

      Ferno

      I joined in the summer of 2006 and people were already turning against Heroes at that point but seemed more lenient since Shadow was worse by comparison.

    8. DarkRula

      DarkRula

      "THE WISPS ARE NOT IN THIS GAME!" I hysterically said in 2013, despite the clear evidence that I had overlooked and was then pointed out to me about five times over.

      And considering how the wisps played in Lost World, I wish that outburst had somehow been able to wipe them from the game before it released.

  8. Much as I like the RE5 Chris design(like he’s my favorite design of Chris period.) seeing him as a optional skin in the RE1 Remake is...no. For multiple reasons, but mainly it’s just that I only associate his design with Roger Craig smiths voice, so it’s weird to see someone else’s voice come out of him. (Also everyone else being classic design while Chris isn’t is SUPER weird lol)

  9. Tbh I feel like this Infinity War announcement back in 2014 doomed interest in Age of Ultron from the start, but I like looking back and seeing how Marvel killed the audience like 3 consecutive times within the last 30 seconds or so

     

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Can’t believed they pretty much nailed the release dates with little delay way back then. Props to them 

    2. Tails spin

      Yeah, why care about Ultron if u just found out Thanos-was-coming

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      “That’s the End Game” dear lord, I both love and hate how early that name was being tossed around and most of us never caught onto it.

    4. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      I marathoned all the mcu movies after watching this event cause it was so hype and I wanted to be prepared for Infinity War when it came out

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Is that a huge deal though? I get your point but we knew about Thanos as early as the original Avengers, so we already knew Ultron and the other villains wouldn’t pull off their goals, but we still watched to see how they impacted the MCU as a whole.

      I’d frankly argue that both Ant Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel were the movies screwed by Infinity War.

    6. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      @Ryannumber1gamer Nothing bad really happened to Ant-Man and the Wasp. And Captain Marvel has only the movie's boring nature to blame for itself.

    7. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      No, I disagree. I felt having them between IW and Endgame killed them hard because it had the effect of making it feel like complete filler whilst Marvel scramble to finish Endgame.

      Ant Man’s tie in feels completely out of left-field and extremely dark in a movie that to this point has been retrospectively light-hearted, comedic and funny, and it shows hard in the movie itself given that the final joke is the only real black comedy joke.

      I say this as someone who really enjoys both Ant Man movies - but I felt like Ant Man 2 was hit hard by it. It felt out of place, had a bit of plot distraction because EVERYONE knew that there would be an IW tie in and we wondered where and how it would happen and frankly - having what’s meant to be a more personal and smaller tier story right after the biggest crossover and cliffhanger of the entire series was not a good idea whatsoever.

      Captain Marvel suffers from a lot of the same issues. She’s meant to be what seemingly turns the tides on Thanos, yet she’s being introduced at the eleventh hour, is taking place 20 years before Infinity War, makes light of something that should legitimately be interesting (Nick Fury’s eyepatch), and has tons of controversy behind it because of the main actress’ actions which if Endgame does end up having her being the trump card, I can immediately see another backlash occurring. Granted, I haven’t seen Captain Marvel yet so I cannot comment on it anymore.

    8. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      You just summed up a great deal of how Captain Marvel has itself to blame more than Infinity War.

    9. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I still think that if the issues weren’t existent, they would be suffering the same exact problems as Ant Man, the only difference is being the worry that Marvel is going to be too OP and change the tides of battle against Thanos alone.

  10. Another late video/article upload. This time about what could Activision Blizzard do next since some of their current projects are seemingly going slower than planned.

  11. I've got an incredibly stupid question that I can't seem to find the answer on Google for some reason. Can you use a MicroSD Card in the adapter it comes with (in effect using as regular SD Card) with no ill short or long term effects? I hope so, cause I'm gonna need an SD Card soon and the only spare I have is a micro.

    1. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      I've been using exactly that for my homebrewed 3DS for several years and it works fine, so I think you should be fine.

      That said, an adapter can somewhat easily break if you're not careful (or it's shoddily made), so it'd be better to have more than 1 adapter just in case.

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      Had one in my DSi since launch and it's been fine tbh.

    3. Tornado

      Tornado

      I never buy full size SD cards due to the increased use you can get out of Micros, and I've never had any problem with it other than breaking an adapter once.

      they should make 'em bigger. I always finish one in like 3 bites so I usually have to get two.

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Ferno maybe that’s the plan all along: make them cheap as hell on Fridays, but since they’re so small you buy almost the same price as the full deal on a regular day.

      It's coz they use that square low-poly model for all draw-distances.  It was probably an oversight/rendering error but low-poly models actually have a denser flavour, but in other burgers you don't notice coz they use all those additional particle effects like lettuce and onions.

    5. Heckboy

      For me, it's the McChicken. The best fast food sandwich. I even ask for extra McChicken sauce packets and the staff is so friendly and more than willing to oblige.

      One time I asked for McChicken sauce packets and they gave me three. I said, "Wow, three for free!" and the nice friendly McDonald's worker laughed and said, "I'm going to call you 3-for-free!".

      Now the staff greets me with "hey it's 3-for-free!" and ALWAYS give me three packets. It's such a fun and cool atmosphere at my local McDonald's restaurant, I go there at least 3 times a week for lunch and a large iced coffee with milk instead of cream, 1-2 times for breakfast on the weekend, and maybe once for dinner when I'm in a rush but want a great meal that is affordable, fast, and can match my daily nutritional needs.

      I even dip my fries in McChicken sauce, it's delicious! What a great restaurant.

    1. Zaysho

      My last PC slowed down pretty badly and the fan would start spinning like crazy for some reason following a Windows 10 update. Might be a similar situation?

    2. Harkofthewaa

      Harkofthewaa

      Yeah, it's had some definite issues lately when updating. It's a Windows 7 though, with that being said it's getting petty old.

  18. going to go back in time to prevent Sonic from being created with the hope that doing so will allow my younger self to have a normal childhood development

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      i feel like i'd just get stuck on something else

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      If Sonic was never a thing then I probably would've had a much longer Nintendo fan phase (as Unleashed is what finally got me to purchase a 360) and dear lord, I don't even want to think about that mess of a timeline.

      I thank Sonic everyday.

  19. I'm already at episode five of The Promised Neverland

    this is fire how come people weren't talking about this 

    1. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      i'm trying to get the manga, but it's in short supply ;n;

      The series got recommended to me several times during my language studies, as talking about manga to Japanese natives gets a LOT of people raving about this. And there's the occasional mention online, but I don't see much of it. Now you too, and I reeeally want to start reading the series.

      How has this slipped under my radar...?

    2. TCB

      TCB

      I saw the manga a bookstore a couple of months ago but didnt think any of it

      Man what have I been missing. I'm at episode six at the time of this status being replied to. 

  20. So the moral of the story is I need to update my 3x3 or 4x4 favorite games of all time list since I don't want it to be a mostly Nintendo games.

  21. Weeellll shoot, Sonic Drive is stuck in my head now. Repeat listens will do that.

     

    INSIDE OUTSIDE GO SONIC

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      That intro and the pilot that the animation was taken from to make it was some of the best 2D animation for the modern series outside of the Riders intro.

      there was also this from the 2nd Japanese intro that the US never got since we used Gotta Go Fast all the way through and I always wondered where it was from because I saw it in like every forum avatar/ sig back in the day:

      giphy.gif

       

    2. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      It's unfortunate that the cool animation of the pilot didn't fully carry into the series. Finding the reason reveals that the series unpopularity in it's home country got the budget lowered for season 2, despite being a smash success everywhere else. Hell, it's why Japan never got season 3, despite having the voice track, soundtrack and everything.

      Suppose when people clamour for another Sonic anime, they need to keep that crucial detail in mind.

  22. Wow, that new Simpsons episode was... pretty bad. 

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      So did they do nothing about the merger, or...?

    2. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      From what I've seen, they they didn't mention it. 

    3. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Well, no surprise there. Whatever episode you're talking about was likely made before the merger was facilitated as concrete as it was at the time.

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      Pretty sure the next season premiere will probably mention it in the couch gag.

    5. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      I feel like that's the least of the episode's problems. This episode demonstrated a pseudo-gender equality message.

    6. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I saw new episode of family guy for the first time in years. It was basically them commentating on the current episode. It was really bad and it's good to know i haven't missed much

    7. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      Context, pls?

    8. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      For which: FG or simpsons?

    9. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      I'd actually like both, pls

  23. Man I hope those Sonic Chaos and Triple Trouble remakes haven't died

    1. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Triple Trouble is going well, it got mote previews last week.

      Now Chaos I haven't heard a single thing since sage (lolol cancelled)

    2. Sean

      Sean

      I'm more amped for the Chaos remake for being more overtly Mania-style (plus I like Chaos more) but the Triple Trouble remake looks cool in its own right too, and I'm excited to try it out because I really want to like TT but can't in its official form.

    3. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Hm, tbh Chaos looks a bit TOO much like Mania, like it barely has it's own identity.

      Also the level design wasn't all that pronising tbh

    4. Sean

      Sean

      Cribbing on an official game's identity doesn't bother me at all especially since I think a lot of fangames don't crib enough

      Also the level was fine. Just needed some more signposting
