Re: Sonic 2016 Rumours

...well, watching a YouTube video made me refresh my memory and realize that the giant disembodied heads were only random enemies and I never really reached the actual final boss as a kid.

Damn, that final stage was brutal. Screw that game, Wario Lands are much better.

Re: Sonic 2016 Rumours

I was thinking more along the lines of characters like Yoshi and Wario, who haven't been seen in a Mario game proper in several years (limited power-ups notwithstanding), yet are arguably more well-known for their own series. Has Wario ever been seen in a proper Mario game, though? From Mario's poi...

Re: Sonic 1 and 2 getting Sonic CD style remakes

Well, that's technically what Kinder Surprise Eggs are nowadays, right? And how they're like a banned import that can get your ass arrested if you even accidentally try to bring them into the US? Gotta say, kids in US must have enormous gaping holes where their mouths should've been to even conside...

Re: Sonic 1 and 2 getting Sonic CD style remakes

Notwithstanding the nostalgia value to us weaned on this version, the only tracks I'd argue are an improvement over the original are Launch Base Zone's (Though for the life of me I can't not think of the Mickey Mouse Club March theme whenever I hear it). It's shit as a final theme, yes, but if you'...

Re: Of obscure(ish) digital adventure.

Yeah, you're right, there's like "Terry Jones, Douglas Adams" underneath the title. Funnily enough, in my personal edition the cover only features DOUGLAS ADAMS in giant typeset, no mention of Terry there - so I always assumed he was just there to insert those embarrassing passages about teenage sex...

Re: Of obscure(ish) digital adventure.

Speaking of Adams, anyone else here played Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? It makes a pretty hilarious digital novel, extremely difficult though ( ... got as far as the second "it is dark" scenario before giving up. Remember to feed the dog. ).

Milka Orange Jelly . This stuff is ludicrous. It's got way too much sugar and milk for the purist snob in me to consider "chocolate", but I can't resist it, that chemically-enhanced icing is just too good. It's got to have artificial opiates in it or some shit. I carved up 5 of these into 20 smalle...

Re: Sweet Wheat & Sucrose Oats

It is, though "cocoa content" usually accounts for both fat and powder. It it has too much powder, the bar gets brittle and oxidizes quickly. If there's too much fat, it ends up lacking both taste and theobromine, but fat has to added in order to make those high-cocoa bars stick together. You'd prob...

I see your point. Yeah, they've taken a single picture of a single pine tree and messed with it; it's pretty insulting (being a great fan of gymnosperm woodlands, I am desolated to point out it doesn't even look the way natural coniferous forests actually do, because judging from the shape this one ...

It might be the fact that it looks like they used someone's desktop background photo for the clouds and sky. Speaking of skies, Neo Aquatic Ruin seems to be set somewhere off the coast of LA where there's lots of air traffic. Maybe I would have Splash Hill's sky as my desktop BG for a couple of day...

Looking at the background, it looks like the snow level and the construction site level belong to the same zone. Unless there's a bunch of screenshots I haven't yet seen..?

If by "double" they mean "half-assed traces of a heavily processed something that may at one point have originated from some portion of a cocoa bean", then it is a very good description.

Doesn't look much better in the original, honestly...the 3D model thing they've got going only makes that awkward expression stand out more.
