Ok, here. I'll host that until it shows up on this page. Still don't feel like installing the build tools though.

Re: To Boldly Spindash

Must be on a Spanish site somewhere, though "Sonic Cosmo" still doesn't come up with anything on Google from the last 3 days. Even if you had it, though, you'd either have to compile the latest MAME source code yourself or wait until the 22nd for MAME v0.183 to come out. I can wait another 2 weeks, ...

Re: To Boldly Spindash

The Dumping Union. Right below the thread you linked to they posted a link to this video, which has several random handhelds that were successfully emulated on MAME last year, so I assume they dump those as well or are at least affiliated with someone who does.

Re: To Boldly Spindash

It's done! 12 long years ago, I came to this website on a quest . That quest was to beat every non-hack, non-beta Sonic game ever made (Sonic '06 became the cutoff point for obvious reasons). About a year earlier I had gotten into emulation and decided that it would be fun to play every game in one...

Re: Hardware Mania

Sonic titles tend to get Steam releases. All of the other games you named are already on Steam. Sonic Mania will probably end up there too, if you're willing to wait. Or buy a used console, play the games you want to, and sell it when you're done. You might even be able to find a way to rent one. I'...

Mario in Station Square! Haha! That's exactly what I was thinking! Both the new BotW and Mario trailers blew me away. I haven't played a 3d Mario since Sunshine and I've been craving one. Mario in the real world is a weird idea, but not every world looks realistic . It's still whimsical enough to b...

It's honestly not that impressive as far as potential Lego sets go, but just seeing Hidden Palace Zone depicted in a game for the first time since S&K makes me gush.

Re: Possible Sonic Lego Dimensions Cross Over

Really? That's so odd. The Lego Starwars and DC hero games let you play as pretty much every model in the game, including random grunts. Do playable characters have a lot of dialog in Dimensions? Programatically it wouldn't have taken significant work; they could've just coded them all as clones of ...

Shadow, still trying to fulfill his promise to Maria.

I have no idea if this is real or not, but I applaud whoever came up with it.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Oh, neat, I didn't notice that the trunks of the trees become visible in Launch Base 2. Given the distance, they appear to be pretty tall, with branches only near the top, just like the ones in Mushroom Hill. That does add some weight to the rock wall being related to Sandopolis, and I agree that it...

Man, Dust Hill. Maybe we'll see a Genocide City reference somewhere. I was trying to come up with which Sonic CD levels I'd like to see come back, and there really aren't many. It would be either Wacky Workbench, assuming they could find a way to make the bouncy gimmick fun instead of annoying, Star...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Yeah, they were created by Gerald, who was studying Chaos Emeralds and looking for a way to apply their infinite energy to living things. GUN was powering their robots with them, so it's entirely possible Eggman picked up a bomb powered by one on Prison Island or Ark. Given that they have gems insid...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Guess we finally burned out. Oh well, maybe after Mania comes out we'll have more. I ran into someone today who tried to track the emeralds throughout Sonic 06. I remember this now. They were so careless with it that I wasn't even able to keep track while playing. So apparently the bad future is not...

Good points about Launch Base. I'm with it. I've always know Angel Island must be bigger than it looks when we see it from afar (especially in SA1, where it's downright tiny), but now that you point all that out...it really is a huge piece of land! It's got at least 7 zones just on the surface, with...

That fixes the perspective problem I was having between the map and the sprite and, indeed, puts the "bite" where you've got it. I think the building next to the Death Egg is actually Hidden Palace.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

You mean you don't remember? Spazz made a whole website dedicated to it!

Since Shadow's only had cameo roles since 06 they probably haven't given it any thought. If they ever make significant use of him again then he'll probably become whatever they need him to be.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Tails has a yellow/orange emerald, which isn't seen elsewhere. I like to pretend that Tails' one is the fake and it acts as a device to harness the energy from the others to make the rocket ship work. But I think the developers just had 8 because there are 8 characters. http://www.theghz.com/forum/...

So you've got the meteorites, then Eggman, then Hyper/Super Sonic. What is that strange arm underneath? I've always wondered that. Well, the Doomsday robot did have two arms. In one hand it's got the Master Emerald, showing that he's stolen it, and with the other hand he's preparing to fight Sonic....

Re: Revenge of the nerds

The emeralds were giant at the end of SA2 though, and we don't appear to have gotten hyper forms during the Final Hazard fight. Correction: the emeralds were giant while they were on the Ark shrine. Sonic and Shadow removed them while transforming and they changed back to normal size, so this doesn...

So chriscaffee suddenly appeared and we started talking about Sonic Mania and somehow my prediction of a return of super forms for Tails and Knuckles turned into the biggest Sonic lore discussion I've had in at least 5 years, maybe 10.
