I didn’t know Sonic The Fighters was this rad.

It’s a neat little game. Emphasis “little”.

It is very slight for a fighter

My posts are a lot like a turtle doing a pull up. Funny, ultimately pointless, and possibly abuse.


Is sonic forces good?

Thoroughly mediocre but probably not impossible to have fun with.

Forces looks great, runs well and has some really fun moments, but there's a hell of a lot of content that is severely truncated or just not entirely thought through.

Like, I decided to fail the snake QTE to see what happens. Fail the first part and it's an insta-death. Fail the second part, though, and not only does the snake spit you out towards the goal ring anyway, but you get a line of story-relevant dialogue from Amy that you don't hear if you pass the QTE, and because it's so easy to pass, I'm willing to bet that almost every player has never heard that line. And of course there's the incredibly short levels, the fact that there's maybe five enemy types in the whole game, the number rings and silver moon rings being dumped into levels with little thought or ceremony like they just needed to cram in some extra content as quickly as possible... The engine is polished, but the content is undercooked by a good nine months, maybe a year.

Come with me if you want to not die.


If your GF had issues with the classic Sonic games in the past, see if you can't get the Christian Whitehead ports of 1 and 2 running on something for her. Classic Sonic just plays better in widescreen, the little bit of extra vision lets you actually plan more, but it's not enough to make it trivial. The only problem is that even after Cybershell's classic "Sonic 2 but every time I jump I say "gently caress you SEGA"" we still haven't gotten releases on anything but phones

It's okay. None of the gameplay or levels are really bad, but the levels are so short that it's rarely satisfying and the levels aren't that great either. The avatar customization is surprisingly fun though, and the music is good at least, so it's not the worst decision to try out the game.

That's pretty cool, didn't see it coming, and it might actually be good for SE assuming Yuji Naka can keep a project running smoothly.

Naka can admittedly be kind of hit or miss about that.

Something I've noticed in fanart circles is the idea of Shadow having a love of gardening because of his sidequest in the Lego Dimensions thing.

There's no genocide in Freedom Planet.

Its writing and voices are so bad it unlocks the Hitler in our hearts. Its characters and aesthetics are so awful it reshapes our souls into Pol Pot.

Look, I thought the torture bit was overdoing it, but you're being a weird rear end in a top hat, again.

Also the game looks really nice? I guess two of the three protags don't really look like their species, but you could make that argument about a huge chunk of the Sonic cast.

Accuracy to real-world animals is kinda low on my list to hate Freedom Planet characters, friend.

I like Shadow being an edgelord but also tending a garden and getting very offended when someone makes fun of his garden

Shadow being Shadow in the S2 finale of Sonic Boom was probably my favorite portrayal of his character.
