I can't beleive there's a Spongebob themed Splatfest coming and Squidward isn't a choice. It feels like a slightly missed opportunity.

Whenever you think of Spongebob, the first two characters you think of are the Sponge himself, or Patrick. Also they probably knew that Squidward would be a biased choice anyway, especially knowing how that community loves their memes.

I guess that's true, to an extent. But in this case your choices are essentially dumb or dumber. Spongebob and Patrick's personalities aren't that different from one another, at least in the episodes that came after the Spongebob Movie. If Squidward were a choice you'd be choosing between characters who are basically opposites, which differentiates your options a lot more and adds more tension between which side will win.

Plus if Squidward were a choice, it would have had the potential o be a very meta-Splatest. Are you a Spongebob, a person who only sees the silverlinings and are ignorant of the hardships of the world? Or are you Squidward, a person who's been worn down by the corporate pigs, surrounded by people who will never truly understand them and the only thing they have left to look forward to is the sweet release of the death?

True. And deep.

Looks like we're getting another Smash Bros balance patch. Here's hoping Bayonetta gets some nerfs and some of the less good characters get some buffs.

Man, you've been collecting clips for months now. Do you plan on making your first montage into a 3 hour long cinematic experience or something?

Yeah, so it appears that the patch will ONLY nerf Bayonetta:

Well, at least they're willing to listen to fan-feedback. Some people say it's not the character's fault and the player should just adapt... But in Bayonetta's case, she's got way too much going for her.

It's a shame some of the not-so good characters didn't receive any buffs though.

Sonic Mania is the one I'm most excited for, honestly. I grew up on the Sonic Adventure dualogy, but as I've grown older I've come to appreciate the original games and character designs. Heck, I think I actually prefer the classic designs now. So seeing Classic Sonic starring in is own game that's very blatant about it's roots is awesome. Plus my boy Knuckles is FINALLY playable again!


For Sonic 2017, it wasn't worth sitting through that awful and cringy stream for. The cinematic trailer looked nice, but where was the gameplay? You can't tell me they don't have anything ready to show after delaying this reveal. All I got out of this was that it was Sonic Generations 2 despite them saying right before that it wasn't going to be a sequel. I loved Generations, I'd say it's even the best Modern Sonic game. But a sequel really wasn't necessary, especially five years later when only one mainline Sonic game came out since then.

I have faith in it, since it's being made by the Generations and Colors team. But you know, after teasing this game for the entirety of this year, having the announcement delayed, then making people suffer through their god awful stream months later, I kinda wanted something more than a cinematic trailer that was 75% text.

That stream was terrible. Not that I was really planning on watching it, but they started an hour late, they had so many technical difficulties, then all the cringe-worthy stuff, then that boring ass Crush 40 performance. The only thing from it that even remotely interests me is the new 3D Sonic game, which isn't even coming out this year, but that's probably a good thing given Sonic Team's track record.

I feel like Donkey Kong just shaved my ass cheeks with those moves.

I didn't watch the entire stream. What I watched was enjoyable though. I'll bet it would have been a lot better if we were there in person though.

Oh if I were there in person I would have enjoyed it a lot more. The only reason I waited through the whole thing was to see the new 3D Sonic announcement.

You know, Sonic 2017 has actually restored my faith in Sonic. The prospect of having a game as good as Generations really excites me and it might just make me a Sonic fan again.

I never lost interest in the series, but I can see why some people did. After the party though I can easily say that the vast majority of the fanbase is pleased. Classic fans get Mania, modern fans get Sonic Resistance, and BOOM fans get more episodes of the show and a new game. And then there are fans like me who will enjoy all of it lol.

I was a Sonic fan until Lost World. Lost World was the game that made me completely disinterested in the series because of how much of a let down that game was, although I guess that is partially my fault for maybe getting too hyped for it when it was announced. I still like Sonic as a character though, but I'd say there are more Sonic games I don't like than there are Sonic games that I do like.

Yeah, Sega actually seems to be using their heads for once. Normally they'd rush things for holiday releases so they could get a quick buck. It seems like they realized how they've been dragging Sonic's name through the mud for most of the past decade. Sonic Mania is a dream come true for me, and if Sonic 2017 is as good as Generations, this could be Sonic's return to form.


On a somewhat unrelated note, I'm hoping that if they get some footing for Sonic they'll try and revive their other IPs. I'd like to see a new Skies of Arcadia or Jet Set Radio.

@OS: I can see why people disliked Lost World, but I personally loved it. I feel like most people thought it was a let down because we just got two really great games before that one. @Vid: I've been following them very closely this past year and they've definitely got themselves headed in the right direction. They've been a lot more attentive with the fanbase for starters. I also love how they decided to delay Boom: Fire and Ice to ensure it is a good game. Great thinking on their part.

I would love Sega to continue Resonance of Fate, Sakura Wars, Jet Set Radio, Shining Force, and many others but sadly it feels like the only way these series continue are through the Project X Zone games. I may personally love the crap out of those games, but I kinda wish they got their own new titles themselves. Even then some series like JSR and Skies haven't seen anything at all after all these years.
