Re: He who interpretes this dream....

Sonic Forces is Iizuka coming to embrace his role as the Eleventh Avatar of Lord Vishnu, God of Divine Destruction and Restoration. Although mercifully, cosmic forces have recognized this particular vessel's innate daftness, and thus have made his preferred method of destruction Sonic OCs. And thus ...

Re: He who interpretes this dream....

This place is basically the Sonic fandom's old mens' club. That has it's own advantages, but it'd be nice to get a new personality here every now and again.

Re: Sonic 2017

There's something to be said for not looking backwards but on the other hand, Nintendo has it down to an art (if not a fault) and there's no question about which company puts out better products. You honestly have to wonder, though, how much more mileage they can get out of the overriding boost mec...

Seconding Aladdin. It's honestly one of the better platform games on the system.

Re: Genesis game recommendations

Does this thing have multiplayer capabilities? If so, Combat Cars is a fun, dumb racing game. You've probably played the licensed Animaniacs game, but in case you haven't, I'd recommend playing it through at least once, though, as the humor and gameplay are at least worth looking at. Although it mig...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

While I think that makes a lot of sense, I'm still of the theory that the Super Emeralds are still just essentially souped-up Chaos Emeralds, although it has less to do with the events that transpired in the games and admittedly more to do with aesthetics. https://i.imgur.com/VSbs1Tb.png The Emerald...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

Huh, that's weird. I wonder what's causing us to get different results. I've only tooled around in Debug once, with the Insta-Shield and & Knuckles Mode activated, and never left GHZ 1, if that possibly has anything to do with it. Maybe it has something to do with the character you're using? Maybe i...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

I don't think that's entirely correct, Ysuyoshi. I've been accessing the Special Stages using debug in a No Save file. Maybe you were doing that on a permanent save file where you already got all seven Emeralds? I didn't think it was possible to activate debug on one of those. But yeah, a Special St...

I guess if we're going into full review mode, I might as well get it done with. I really like Emperor Omachao's Good / Bad / Wowwed system, so I'll just ape that.

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

In Lava Reef act 2, I assumed the large spherical body in the background was the ruins of the Death Egg. Other people say it’s the Little Planet. Which is more likely? From a story perspective, it makes sense that it's Little Planet. It can be assumed you left Lava Reef for Metallic Madness. Backin...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

One thing I was going to say about the game is that some of the bosses feel very cinematic for a Sonic game, and while that leaves a great initial impression, in subsequent playthroughs it feels kind of tedious to play through yet another drawn-out boss battle when what I really want to do is explor...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

I think nearly all the rehashed zones are very well chosen. Green Hill, Chemical Plant, Stardust Speedway, Hydrocity, and Flying Battery are among the first things people think of when thinking of their respective games, and each has at least one act that drastically changes things up. Lava Reef is,...

Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

I hope Taxman & Stealth get the opportunity to own the "classic" series for as long as they want it. I'd love to see them make a full game of all original Zones without revisiting any previous ones. Me too. All the original zones were fantastically realized. Titanic Monarch might be my favorite fin...

Really hope Mania becomes it's own series. Me too, although I do hope that The Taxman and Co. continue to innovate. For as subtle as it is, I think the Drop Dash is a fantastic addition to the series. I've played up to Lava Reef, and everything has been fantastic so far. The only rehashed level tha...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

Yeah, the game is good. Somewhat appropriately, it's also super glitchy. Badniks tend to wander into walls and set pieces, which is pretty hilarious. And then there are times like the game deciding I had to die after beating Robotnik in Puyo, or the camera in the Special Stages acting as though I ha...

The game's practically out, right? At least in Europe, I think. By the way, the game contains one definite shout-out to a fan-game that wasn't mutated beyond immediate recognition (some people claim that Press Garden is a heavily-modified Egg Garden Zone. I can sort of see it.) But check this shit o...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

Anyways can't wait to play mania. I replayed sonic 3 and knuckles the other day to get into the mood. That game played at a leisurely pace takes about 2 to 3 hours and honestly I think that is the perfect length for a sonic game. For one single playthrough? It's going to take more than that to see ...

Re: Sonic Tricks (gifs!)

The Sonic Advance series is kind of odd in what actions and situations they sprite for. Sonic Advance 2, in particular, has no "looking up" animation. Instead, pressing up has Sonic and Co. doing unique animations (Sonic stretches, Tails nods off, Knuckles punches the air which weirdly also generate...

Re: Sonic Tricks (gifs!)

Those .gifs makes me realize how weird it that Sonic has a push action. You only use it, like, twice in Marble Zone, right? Why even bother? It also affects those timed switches in Sandopolis Act 2 A.K.A. I Never Ever Wanna Leave This Place Zone. It's only slightly better in that the gimmick actual...

Re: Ken Penders owns a bunch of Sonic's shitty sidekicks

You know, back when Ken initially rolled out his complaints, I actually did have some sympathy for him. I think he initially couched his claims in that he wanted royalties for the issues that he worked on, not the outright ownership of a couple dozen Sonic OCs and recolors. Admittedly I have no idea...

By the way, I have found the contents of the manual elsewhere online. I'm gonna spoil its contents here, so expect some information about the story and levels. First off, it's not really a manual. It's a promotional booklet that emulates a game manual. As in, most of the booklet's contents are devel...
