  • Finally got 100% completion on Sonic Frontiers the other day. The game isn't perfect by any means, but I feel more hopeful about Sonic's future than I have in a long time.

    I've been enjoying it myself. on the second island. yeah, it's not perfect, but I really feel it's a solid step to build on.

    @Iron_Brew Honestly, it was the character writing that kept me going more than the gameplay, though running around the open zone never got old. Ian Flynn definitely showcases his understanding of Sonic and his friends.

    yeah, I'm super glad they actually got someone who knows Sonic and it's characters to write this time. that's been one of the best parts about the game so far.
    Someone at Sega needs to make sure they keep the writer of Sonic Frontiers for future games. This is the best characterization I've seen for Sonic, Tails, Knuckles and Amy in a long time.

    yeah the got the writer from the IDW comics, Ian Flynn I think to write Frontiers and it's been really cool actually seeing them written well for once in the games. feels like it's been ages since they where in proper character.

    I'll always miss the stupid, edgy anime-style plots from SA2 and Shadow

    SA2 wasn't all that edgy when you think about it. It was a little on the darker side, but not overly so. And Shadow was fairly well realized, without hopping too deep into edginess for the sake of being edgy.
    So, GTA VI might have actually gotten a real leak a couple of hours ago. I'm holding on to my skepticism, but the videos that have been posted are certainly something else.

    @JohnDoeNews You'll have to check YouTube for yourself to see if any of the videos are still up. Take Two Interactive are on the warpath right now, and I'd rather not post anything troublesome here. The leaks were 100% real though.

    I've seen some. Didn't trigger my wow factor alert so far.
    I don't think they would be able to take all the videos offline though. There were so many by so many youtubers.
    Just got back from seeing Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. I thought it was pretty good.

    I was trying not to fanboy too hard, but honestly? Yeah. So freaking good!

    Watched it 2 nights ago myself, and it sure did not feel like it was 1 and 40 minutes... it flew by so fast and was really freaking good. Also the post credits scene was completely worth waiting to see! :D

    I drifted from the franchise after the Buu saga because at that point all the transformations were getting a bit silly to me(but SSJ1 always gives me goose bumps), but nice to know people still enjoy the franchise.

    Absolutely, one of the best series I've played! :D

    Indeed. 3 could've been a bit better, but I still had a lot of fun with it.

    Agreed. I'd take many more smaller worlds like 2 over the more boring larger worlds 3 had. Also more plot through the game instead of dumping it all in the last world really. :p
    I'm having a surprisingly easy time with the wait for Hogwarts Legacy, though I know other gamers are salivating hard.

    @Skymin Are people even excited for Star Ocean 6, given the lukewarm reception of SO5? For me, none of those will scratch the same itch Hogwarts Legacy will. To actually get to properly explore the wizarding world without being beholden to the story of Harry Potter. . .:rtear:

    Around my circles (including me), there is not much hype in the HP franchise anymore. So I can also wait. Personally, I need as much timesink as possible and as many games as possible while waiting for Starfield. I don't hype for other games.

    @Sword_of_Dusk to be fair some could sat the same for Valkyrie as many want the old gameplay style. If nothing else SO6 is getting positive reception on flying around the giant world, better designed cast (even if a bit generic/ safe) and better voice acting.

    In short, all it really needs is Xenoblade X style mechs and it a slam dunk in better sales than last several SO games.
    It's a little strange to finally see Pokémon go open world, but I'm down for the experience. Not a big fan of the box legendaries this time around, mostly due to how they'll be used.
    So, I made it to Chapter XI of the recently released Triangle Strategy, and the situation that greeted me was the first time in a while that a game made me feel legit outrage at something going on in the game's world.

    That's not a bad thing, mind you. Just means I got drawn into it. I will say that the circumstances of one's birth should not dictate how they are treated.
    Five chapters into Triangle Strategy and there are already at least three characters I can't wait to get the chance to gank.

Working on an important character's model today: Saken! One of Cyprian's friends from the Hofau school. There he is as a teen student on the left and as an adult Deputy Minister of Love on the right. He dyed his hair.
I always have a hard time writing mean characters. To me, their words sound like a normal comment I receive on a regular basis, but to others it's too much.
AAAGH... I hurt my back at work today and now I can't move from my lower back area. I've been resting like crazy, alternating heat and cold, and hoping tomorrow's dentist appointment isn't ruined...
So far Hogwarts legacy doesn't live up to hype.
Going through alls the stats I have from my testplays. It is so interesting how most people got about the average expected results, but some have some very weird outlieing ones that I now have to try to understand.
