I'm still infinitely amused by her actually being a thing in All-Stars Racing Transformed. I can't even be mad it's so out of left field it's just amazing.

Danica Patrick is such a loving funny and great addition cause since she's an actual real human being in real life it's hard not to get extra mad if she's beating you in-game

One of my fav things about S3&K is how it all just flows together from act to act. I really feel like I'm progressing and the entire thing feels like a big giant adventure, I always feel super pumped when the "story" kicks in about halfway through Lava Reef Zone.

Sonic 2, which I've always felt isn't nearly as good as S3&K feels to me like "okay you beat this level, now play this level". To this day I can never remember what order Oil Ocean, Mystic Cave and Hill Top Zones come in at.

Sonic boom is a better end movie song.

Agreed, this moment here with the 2011 taxman release was one of the coolest moments ever playing a sonic game cause I didn't expect this. Haha I actually shushed someone I had over and was talking to at the time I first beat this when that guitar wound up cause I was just like what the fuckkkk

Good morning everyone, I finally got out to do my morning run today and listened to the Sonic Mania trailer music for pretty much 30 minutes straight during it and my legs felt like my body was running on a cloud of air the whole time

Then I got home & looked at my time...One might say...I went fast

I was disappointed with the Sonic Boom Mix in generations cause it just builds up & builds up...with no pay-off at all :/ if it were an actual full song I would have played every single speedrun side mission to it

Who are these shitpeels anyway?

Realtalk, just to peel back the grandpa layer a little bit, I was poking around youtube for reactions on this and I just found a gentleman's channel giving his thoughts on the IGN vid and I just sent him a message asking him if I met him because he looks and sounds exactly like this crazy dude I ran into both times a friend and I went to this nearby games convention this year and last who, both times, cornered me into talking to him about sonic for an hour (I am seriously not kidding). I'm his Sonic Brutha and he is mine. He just finds me and makes me talk with him (yelling) about Sonic. It was wonderful

Linking vid cause the thumbnail is very nsfw

If it's not him I will feel disappointed. I do not know what the moral is here but I hope you enjoyed my Sonic Friend story, peace

This will get me some flak for saying this but I think it's totally fair at this point to call games like these more like Freedom Planet than Sonic. Not joking. Sonic never had all these melee attacks, ranged attacks massively different character switches and mobility options and seems to be more combat focused, 2D Sonic just runs fast, rolls and jumps. I think Freedom Planet is its own distinct genre at this point. I need to play it one of these days.

One wonders how many more Sonic/Freedom Planet clones will start popping up if Sonic Mania is a huge success?

Rorac posted:

Gotta admit, for all the missteps Sega has had with gameplay/storywriting, they have an almost unreasonably good track record on the music. Not every song is amazing naturally, but I can't think of a sonic game I've played or heard that didn't have at least 2-3 songs that were fantastic. And hell, even the bad ones are rarely if ever annoying bad, just merely ok.

I think pretty much all SEGA products generally have above average sound/music. Sonic All Star Racing Transformed's music is unbelievable.

Also I know the internet stream was an abortion but the live video I've heard from the Sonic party itself sounded amazing (like sound stage set up, etc). I'm still completely with the Sonic Mania reveal trailer music like a month later.
