    Sonic Origins released. What are your thoughts?

    I've played around with it a bit. Lots of people are saying they are disappointed, but honestly I'm pretty happy with it. I do have some nitpicks, such as there being split modes (Anniversary and Classic) instead of just toggle options for widescreen and lives. However, for the most part the...

    Does anyone remember this old level mod?

    I've been curious about this for quite some time now, and I was wondering if anyone else played the mod and remembers what mod it was specifically. I'm pretty sure it was made for one of the late final demo versions of SRB2, probably 1.09.4. I don't remember if it was a NiGHTS level or not, but...

    At the beginning of this month Centralfiction got a rollback netcode update for the main update branch, bringing it out of beta. This also reduced the filesize of the game substantially. Thoughts?

    Luminous Avenger iX 2

    A spinoff of the Azure Striker Gunvolt series, the Luminous Avenger iX series are MMXlikes that are honestly super cool. iX 2 just released today, and I've played about an hour of it so far. It's challenging but honestly quite fun. Inti-Creates might have finally made a worthy successor to the...

    Your favorite alternate Sonic outfit?

    Sonic's sported a number of different fashion items from time to time, from his classic design to his SOAP shoes to his Riders outfit to even his movie design with the PUMA shoes. As long as Sonic has worn it in official property, even in spinoffs like Boom and concept art like Prime, it counts...

    Games with fun unlockables

    Sometimes a big part of what makes a game great is it's unlockables. While thinking about this, I had the idea of starting a thread to discuss games that have particularly fun unlockables. These could be anything from an overpowered weapon to something like big head mode, as long as it can be...

    The future potential of an official new tag team style 2D Sonic game.

    The 2D classic formula has aged like wine in that it was amazing back when it was still new and is still an absolute treat to play to this day. 3&K is still my favorite 2D Sonic game, and there's definitely more hits in the gameplay style than there are misses. However, things can't remain...

    What defines a spinoff?

    A conversation I had recently about Shadow the Hedgehog (2005) inspired this thread. The conversation was in regards to whether the game counts as a spinoff title just because it shifts the main protagonist to a different character, despite being canon to the main series and using the general...

    Quake Remaster

    Similar to the old classic DOOM games before it, Quake got remastered for modern consoles and PC. Existing owners of Quake on Steam (and maybe GOG?) get the upgrade for free. It also includes a free addon download for Quake 64 which allows you to play the Quake 64 versions of the maps with a...

    Ports vs Remasters vs Remakes vs Reimaginings

    The terminology can be pretty confusing sometimes, so for the sake of clarity I will use my own definitions for what each of these are so as to make understanding what I'm talking about easier. I'll condense these into a spoiler tab for those who want them: I view each of these things in...

    Mega Man Classic: Is the Charge Shot and Slide good?

    An interesting topic/debate I've seen in regards to Mega Man 9 and 10. Mega Man 3 introduced the Slide, and then Mega Man 4 introduced the Charge Shot. These abilities remained a part of Mega Man's moveset until Mega Man 9, which opted to revert him to his Mega Man 1 and 2 moveset limitations...

    How each 2D sidescrolling Mega Man subseries improved on the gameplay formula (and didn't)

    Within the Mega Man franchise, there's a total of 3 subseries in addition to the original classic series in regards to the 2D sidescrolling gameplay formula, each building on top of the gameplay from the previous. These series are the X Series, Zero series, and ZX Series. Other series use...

    Fictional characters you'd never want to exist in real life.

    What are some fictional characters you are glad are just fiction? Most villains are rather low hanging fruit, but I'd probably say Superman. There's a certain cosmic horror to him that makes him quite intimidating. As hard as he tries to remain pure, it's entirely possible for him to snap. If...

    (Found!) Lost Media? SRB2 Advanced Fan Game

    Back around the late 2000's or early 2010's when SRB2 1.09.4 was the latest version and SRB2JTE was popular, there was a 2D fangame inspired by SRB2JTE titled "SRB2 Advanced". The fangame seemed to generate a bit of popularity, with youtube videos dedicated to it and whatnot. However, I...

    What art style do you prefer for human Sonic characters?

    There's been a number of different art styles used to depict human characters in Sonic over the years. The more anime styled look of Adventure and Adventure 2's humans, the more realistic inspired look of Sonic 06, and even the more Mario-like cartoon style in Unleashed. Of all the different...

    Sonic Colors Remastered

    This is a rumor that's been floating around online for a few days based on a listing found on a German dubbing company's website. It's looking like Sonic Colors might be getting an updated port for modern systems. Thoughts? Personally, if this turns out to be true and is still in production...

    Should the mainline Sonic series be rebooted?

    It's not really much of a secret that the story/lore in Sonic games across the decades is an inconsistent mess. With this in mind, would it be worthwhile for SEGA to scrub the slate clean and start over with a new team of writers? Personally, I'd be in favor of it. It would be a perfect chance...
