      Thanks to some hard work from @Emblazon, the themes should all be functioning as expected again, with some enhancements/cleanups that he's put in. Please let us know if you spot anything that still seems to be amiss so that we can take care of it.

  1. Sonic Mania reviews are coming in

    Yeah its definitely kind of a bummer that Act 1 is pretty much just a love note to the previous iteration of those levels, but Act 2 and the completely new levels make up the difference for me. I'm actually very fond of the art direction even though it didn't really change all that much. Though I wouldn't complain if it looked like this.
  2. I never even gave the game a chance by the time I returned it. Watching some gameplay makes me thing that I just didn't get far enough to become invested.
  3. Sonic Mania reviews are coming in

    Hellblade and Sonic Mania are both great values for what they are. Both of them could have retailed at $10 more and still have been completely justified. Sonic Mania is what long time Sonic fans have been clamoring for (Generations helped, Sonic 4 did not). Its the best 2D Sonic since &Knuckles, high replayability, great soundtrack, great new features. Hellblade is an amazing experience, great atmospheric game, and has ridiculous production levels for a $30 dollar game.
  4. Sonic Mania reviews are coming in

    I hate the airplane stage. That is all
  5. While I do generally agree that cover shooters are pretty bland and bare bones when it comes to gameplay, his doesn't seem to really made a good point for fixing this problem. Vanquish looks fun (I've never played it), but enemies look like bullet sponges, and its fast and hectic gameplay. Vanquish for me is more the exception here as its a futuristic title and you can kind of do whatever you want. How would you accomplish this when trying to tell a story like Uncharted or Spec Ops? It doesn't work. Sunset Overdrive accomplishes the same thing by being funny, wonky, and just ridiculous. How do you apply that to Gears? Harder gameplay seems to be determined by the damage you take and the more accurate aiming by the enemy, but when you have high enemy counts it makes the game harder for you to actually get out of cover. Instead of having these large number of enemies you should take a F.E.A.R. approach. Small focused groups that are constantly harassing you, ducking in and out of cover and if you stay in one place for too long they will flank you.
  6. Sonic, Halo, maybe I'll finish up hellblade.
  7. Leak: Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition

    Despite it being generally worthless I really wanted the Day one edition of the Xbox One. Same goes for this, but this one I'll actually get
  8. I have a queen sized Casper. Got it as a recommendation from a friend at work and ended up enjoying it as much as she did. I've had it for about 2 years now and haven't had any problems with it. https://casper.com/mattresses/ They as well as most online retailers have a 100 day trial
  9. Sonic Mania Animated Opening

    Man, this is the best sonic has ever looked. This has me in such a nostalgia trip. I love it.
  10. Been on a creepy murder mysteries binge lately after watching Zodiac (its alright). You can bet your bottom dollar that I'm A: calling the cops B: Moving and getting a new job C: hiring someone to watch me if someone is stalking me, calling me, knew intimate details, etc.
  11. Hollow (First Person Sci-Fi Horror) coming to Switch

    Down to $20 bucks at this point. I'll add it to my wishlist and get it during a sale. Thanks for the recommendation.
  12. Warcraft 3 gets an update and a public test realm

    Still mad that they said older games "weren't fun to play". How about you let me decide what is and isn't fun. I'll pay you $30 bucks for a digital WC1 that works on modern devices right now.
  13. Hollow (First Person Sci-Fi Horror) coming to Switch

    I'm kind of over the way the horror genre has been going for awhile now. Everything is sneak around, barley defend yourself, escape sequences. I miss FEAR and Dead Space. Made me happy to see Prey be kind of scary (not really), but it was a nice change of pace.
  14. Should give me another key to another system. That honestly kind of pisses me off, I was looking really forward to this, might just have to double dip and get it on the switch or just cancel my PC altogether.
  15. Been watching this for awhile. Glad it finally out and I'm glad its as good as I hoped it would be. Honestly 2017 GOTY material for me. Only 2 hours in and can't wait to see what the rest of the game holds for me.
