  • The meme may have died long ago, sure, but I still really like the design of Ugandan Knuckles. He's small and round, his eyes are like a goldfish, he's an appealing shade of red, and he exaggerates parts of Knuckles' design, like the mouth, to the absolute extreme. He's cute and weird, and I just enjoy his design.
    The more times I rewatch the Smash Ultiamte e3 reveal, the more I realize the genius that went into each and every character's reveal and how they were organized. Establishing mainstays first was smart-Mario, Samus, Bowser, etc. Inkling and Ice Climbers followed soon after, and those while new were still easy to know if they were happening or not.
    Pokemon Trainer was the first BEEG surprise, and one that none of us expected-then Snake. Everyone is Here, and suddenly all bets were off. Every character in Smash history gets shown to us, then we end on the game's title. Daisy gets revealed when we talk about echoes, and finally Ridley, the biggest (literally) takeaway from the presentation. I can tell weeks and even months of work must've gone into creating the fighter video.

    Just seeing "Everyone Is Here!" and seeing all the veterans returning was more mind blowning than any newcomer reveal in the history of Smash. It was so shocking that when Ridley was revealed at the end my mind was brain dead and couldn't process what was going on.

    Yeah, I had a hard time telling what was happening either. I was so freaked out about Snake and Pichu coming back I didn't even think about "Everyone is Here" until Sakurai repeated it.

    Ridley was a big surprised for me and many others as he was many peoples' most wanted including myself. But seeing all the veterans together was more jaw dropping than seeing Ridley finally making it. It was like the veterans stoled Ridley's moment in the spot light lol!
    I was just now listening to the Sonic Colors OST on YouTube while doing some homework. This was between Aquarium Park acts 2 and 3 and I honestly freaked out when I heard it.
    Darn you, water in Sonic games! Scarring kids since 1992.
    Since I can't participate in the usual Halloween festivities this year, I'll be going out of my way to find a bunch of creepypastas-regardless of how well or badly they're written-and read them. Sounds like a spooky good time.

    I've actually never read or watched Ben Drowned-which is weird, since the medium basically owes its existence to that story (well, the videogame creepypastas, anyway). That's number one on my list. Probably won't venture outside of the videogame themed ones though.
    Day 9 of posting my favorite song from every Sonic game:
    Also, not from the game but this is a really good cover of that song I wanted to share:
    Theory on BotW 2:
    So, here are a few things BotW has going for it.
    Unanimous praise
    Relatively huge open world, the likes of which we'd never seen before
    Pushing the boundaries with things unique and new
    It got a sequel; a sequel that, mind you, is much darker in tone than the original.
    Sound familiar? Well it should, because I'm also describing Ocarina of Time. And that sequel is Majora's Mask. Let's recap on that game, shall we? The Skull Kid hijacks your horse and sends you down a large pit, which leads him to Termina-a land that was underneath Hyrule all this time, almost an alternate dimension of sorts, where the characters you saw in the first game are reappearing here.
    Now, let's recap on Breath of the Wild's sequel. At the end of the trailer, we see Hyrule Castle raising into the sky. What could be beneath it? Well, I have a theory-a pit, similar to the one Young Link fell down in MM, that leads to the same destination-Termina.
    My theory states that, if it is true, we will be traveling between Hyrule and Termina at will in the BotW sequel.

    This would be amazing. Imagine how much Termina has changed over centuries? Maybe that will be a big plot point. By that, I mean: early in the game it seems just like a cave system, but eventually Link (and Zelda?) discover ruins of Clock Town and that ends up as a major plot point.

    We need more news on this game.

    Exactly, there's so much to do with that. If my theory ends up being right, I'm guessing Ganondorf would act as the villain of Hyrule, and the Happy Mask Salesman would act as the villain of Termina-we don't know very much about him and he just makes sense for the villain of this world. As much as I love Skull Kid as an antagonist, It'd make more sense for him to be a side protagonist. Maybe Link and Zelda have to travel between the two worlds to keep both threats at bay. Tingle would come back too, which would be a welcome surprise. I wonder if the ruins of Clock Town still have inhabitants or, like Hyrule Castle Town, they went somewhere else for safety. Imagine if we get to play the Song of Healing and get to wear masks to transform into Gorons, Zora, Rito, and Deku! Come to think of it, we didn't see any Deku in BotW, so maybe they were extinct in that world but still exist here.
    Dude, there's so much potential here it's not even funny.

    Criticize the series all you want but these six words made me so damn happy as a kid
    If someone unfamiliar with the Sonic series was trying to figure out what the original trilogy of games were based solely on Genesis compilations, they'd probably think it was 1, 2, Spinball.
    The four horsemen of Sonic Newgrounds stuff that made up my childhood:
    You don't know how badly I want to play Sonic X-treme out of pure curiosity.
    I want Hatsune Miku for the sole reason that a stage where it's a rhythm game where you can line yourself up with the arrows as they fall into their activation spots to get a stat boost would be really, really fun.
    Sonic 06 is a rushed Sonic Adventure 3.

    Imagine if Sega released a game called "Sonic Adventure 4" and never specified what 3 was. The fanbase would go more insane.

    "Sonic 06 because it's the most similar to the Adventure games!"
    "Sonic Heroes because there's three characters in a team!"
    "Sonic Unleashed because it was originally titled Sonic World Adventure!"
    "Sonic Advance 3 because its acronym is SA3!"
    Day 6 of posting my favorite song from every Sonic game:
    What? I couldn't choose just one from SA2!
    You know how Nintendo likes to make jokes at the expense of Roy and Roy having the same name?
    Yeah, I have a feeling they're going to that twice as much if Ryu Hayabusa gets in Smash.
    When Sonic fans are still talking about how bad Forces was, three years later, that's when you know we have nothing to talk about.

    KirbyWorshipper2465 KirbyWorshipper2465 and honestly we’re lucky to have those things. And I think a big reason we’re all so hungry for new games is because we quite literally had a Sonic game every year up until 2015. So I’ll wait a little longer, and I am enjoying SAGE quite a bit. Maybe I’ll pick up the IDW comics sometime but I’ll have to do a lot of catching up.

    Didn't they officially say they're going to stop doing yearly releases so they can give more time to making each game as best they can?

    Yes and I’m glad they are. It’ll just take some getting used to.
    My first choice for a mobile games rep would be Crazy Dave.
    I didn't have any problems with Breath of the Wild's voice cast. I thought they were all pretty good-except Link of course, he screamed half the time and forgot all his lines.
    Despite what you think about not having the Minecraft base soundtrack in Ultimate, you can’t deny that the songs we did get are nothing short of amazing.

    I don't even think they should have used songs from the original Minecraft game. Play a match with the "Environmental Noises" track from Pikmin… It's not that fun

    it's so much fun to just take a break from the same fast paced music and just get some nice ambience for once

    and even then, there's still songs in the game that would've been good for fighting anyway, such a pigstep

    Sonic 2's final boss is way more intense and fitting for the part of the game, but Sonic 3's is just better for listening.

    My top Sonic 3K track, as cliché as it is to say: Hard Times - I mean, Ice Cap. Carnival Night (PC) is good too.

    Ice Cap/Hard Times was a close second because I love snow levels so much-but the amazing breakdown in the middle of Flying Battery won me over. I've actually never heard the PC version of Carnival Night as I haven't revisited Sonic 3 since Classic Collection.

    And about Sonic 2, I actually feel the same way about Open Your Heart. In Adventure it's a better song, but in Generations it's a much better boss theme.
    I think it’s better to go through quarantine without thinking about it much. Whenever I think about what life could be without COVID or the fact that I’m doing the exact same things in every day, that’s when I get most depressed. As long as I can tackle my tasks head on, do well in this sorry excuse for online school, and relax with videogames every day in the evening, without considering the long-term, I’ll make it through this.

    Easy thing to say, tough to do when literally everything does their damnedest to remind you of it as if talking to a school of goldfish.

    Do your best to tune everything out, man.

    I'm surprised I've been able to make it through this year, and I think Janx nailed the exact reasons why. I only think about Covid when I'm outside, but I'm able to tune those thoughts out by putting on my mask and doing my thing. Ironic, considering I suffer from hypochondrial related anxiety on a regular basis.

    I’m still a little bit bitter that the entire quarantine interrupted my plan to bring to the wife and kids to the states to meet their grandparents for the first time. I got $4,000 of the $5,000 I used on tickets thankfully but the ticketing company took $1,000 of it. I had several interviews and networking meetings set up for possible job opportunities for when we move there. I did a few via Zoom but many cancelled sadly. So now we are moving back the States basically with nothing.

    Steve is really, really weird. But I'm willing to hold out on my journey to main him.

    He is weird doesn't seem crazy broken tho
    My switch kept running into busy servers and it was taking forever. I'll try to get some sleep tonight and play Steve tomorrow when it's died down a bit.
    Decided to spoil myself on Last of Us Part II.
    At first I was hesitant to buy it, but now?
    I never want to play this game. Ever.
    Having Joel die within minutes of the game alone makes me want to vomit-why would you do that to a character that means so much to us, and try to make out his killer as not an awful person? Apparently lots of other things happen in the game that do their absolute best (worst?) to make you feel uncomfortable-not at all what I need from a video game right now or ever. So no, this a pass for me. I may have loved the first game, but I'll do myself a favor and decide not to play this one.
    On a brighter note, Steve is tomorrow!! :)
    So apparently Sega is dropping Sonic Adventure 3 hints, now more explicit than ever.
    I can't believe this. I want to believe that this is some kind of prank, so Sega can say next year "Screw you, Sonic Forces 2, baby!" but no this has to be real. Everything has led up to this-the Adventure remixes, the Adventure artwork, the many Adventure memes they posted, not to mention the hefty amount of rumors...
    This might be happening. If it is, I couldn't be more excited.

    Wait sonic adventure 3 is a possibility?
    Janx_uwu
    Janx_uwu
    Always has been...
    In reality though, they released a Station Square remix late last year, and ever since it's been Sonic Adventure art, Sonic Adventure memes, and Sonic Adventure music coming out of Sonic Twitter. Same thing they did with Classic Sonic leading up to Mania. So yes, it's highly likely Sonic Adventure 3 would come out.

    SEGA has been having a good year so far, so I wouldn't be surprised if they announced something as big as Sonic Adventure 3.
    "In the Archie comics, Sonic's real name is revealed to be Olgilvie Maurice Hedgehog. He tries desperately to protect that information, possibly out of embarrassment."
    Sonic comics are a whole other world. Considering what I've seen from it as an outsider, though, this just scratches the surface. Maybe I should make an Archie Sonic iceberg...

    They're fun, if admittedly super weird in the pre-Ian Flynn era. I would definitely recommend them if you're interested in an expanded take on Sonic.

    Be warned, though: Some of the art before Flynn's era was...Unique, lol.

    I read that one where Knuckles turned into some evil villain with a mask and the echidna elder told Sonic to execute him.

    That one was one of the first major stories Ian wrote, if I'm remembering correctly. It's one of my personal favorites, it took a lot of the weird echidna lore the series had and applied it in a more cohesive and interesting story.

    Fun fact: The echidna who told Sonic to kill Knuckles was Knuckles' dad, lol.
