Re: Metal Sonic in Sonic Mania.

*Sees "Metal Sonic" life icon in gameplay.*

*Sees generic "1up" life icon in menus.*

Yep, seems totally legit.

Re: The complexity and creativity put into designing Sonic levels

Sonic The Hedgehog's level design, even in 2D, is a very difficult thing to get right. I've played many 2D Sonic games, and usually level design quality is something that always seems inconsistent. You need speed, but done poorly can lead to boring automation, or running into hazards or pits before ...

Re: Discussion: The ban on lootboxes and microtransactions.

Lootboxes are gambling, but microtransactions on their own are not gambling. When they show you what you're buying, you know what you're paying for. While, yes, microtransactions are not always gambling, they still have the potiental to be equally as malicious and psychologically manipulative, rega...

Re: In my opinion, this is what makes a game good

But games are made for 2 things: -Entertainment -Money A game that isn't fun isn't worth money so the entire purpose dies Your model used to be how games where made, but it has long since been replaced with a new model. -Entertainment value is irrelevant, just ensure the game is not hated to the po...

Re: worst mm stages

Brazen will hate me for this, but almost every stage in Mega Man 2. Keep in mind the "almost" part. I still think stages like Wood Man, but almost every stage has a major design problem, namely, the game being heavily reliant on trial and error for new players. Even the hardest sections in the orig...

Re: In my opinion, this is what makes a game good

By just about all in-depth scales of analysis, I would classify Sonic The Hedgehog 2 as a pretty bad game, design wise.

...yet for some odd reason I'm always drawn back in to play it again and again.

Re: Discussion: The ban on lootboxes and microtransactions.

Remember the days when game developers used to sell feature-complete games for a full retail price, and occasionally sold expansion packs that brought large amounts of additional content? The days where companies where successful based upon the quality of their products, and the trust they gained an...

sea horses of doom What about the sea horses?

The level designers also have occasional instances of placing t...

Oil Ocean, the bad:

-Falling in the oil is a giant burden
-Psychics can be broken
-Elevators break the pace
-The boss has a similar problem with hill Top's
Additional point:

-Oversight where the boss has no methods of attacking if the player, if the player stays under the platforms.

-Quick Man boss I've not had many problems with, but I'll speak for other people: The boss is fast as hecc, immune to most weapons, Weakness can't even reliably defeat him until he's at 1/2 HP, Crash Bombs in themselves are already trash but are one of the onl good ways to beat him I just recently ...

The correct answer is A&W

What?
I'm Canadian
Stop lookin' at me like that.
I'm also Canadian, and I believe that Barqs far exceeds A&W on the rootbeer tier list.

Re: Discussion: The ban on lootboxes and microtransactions.

I don't live in the US, so this doesn't impact me ( yet ). IMO, good riddance. Games that rely on gambling mechanics and predatory monetization elements have been a poison on the gaming industry for years, since the early days of mobile phone gaming, and had since spread and infected console gaming ...

Re: Hot Take: 9th gen consoles will suck

Probably my biggest disappointment when it comes to Nintendo Switch, is the lack of the Virtual Console.

And, no, having the ability to "borrow" NES games for paying for an online membership is NOT a suitable replacement.

* Every single Wily level (excluding Wily 5's boss rematches).

MM3
* Every single Doc Robot level

MM4

Can't really think of more off the top of my head at the moment.
