    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...

    Elements of your ideal Sonic game?

    Everyone has their own tastes as to what their ideal games would be like. In regards to the Sonic franchise, what elements would you bring together to make up your ideal experience? It doesn't necessarily need to be feasible, this is all just for fun. For my ideal Sonic game, I would like the...

    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...

    This topic is about which game series you consider the most special to you for whatever reason. This isn't necessarily about which games are better games than each other, it's about what they mean to you; why they resonate with you personally. Here's my list: 1. Mega Man Zero/ZX I remember...

    Sonic Prime on Netflix

    Source: Here Looks like the Sonic Netflix series has finally been announced properly. I'm a bit skeptical as to how good the series will be, but hopefully it ends up being good. I wonder what artstyle the series will use, and if there will be any character redesigns such as in Boom?

    Mega Man fans: What's your favorite game in the franchise and why?

    The Mega Man franchise has a huge number of games in it, with many of them covering vastly different gameplay styles or spins on the traditional classic formula. As such, it's only natural that fans of the franchise would prefer one game or series over others. For me, the Zero and ZX games are...

    Hyper Sonic Discussion Thread

    Since we were beginning to derail the Red XVI discussion thread with this, this seemed appropriate. Should Hyper Sonic officially return to SRB2 in some form? Personally, I would love to see Hyper Sonic come back as some sort of secret unlockable. I probably wouldn't bring back the black...

    SRB2 level design philosophy compared to the classic games

    This topic is intended less as a critique and more as a general comparison/contemplation. The classic games on the Genesis/Mega Drive followed a general mentality of rewarding players for going slow by placing various hidden goodies along the path to find if you were looking for them, while...

    Some questions for the SRB2 staff/devs

    Some of these questions might have been asked and answered before, and I apologize if that's the case, but there's a few things I am curious about that I am hoping you guys could find the time to answer. If not, it's not really a big deal. I also don't consider it important that every single...
