So you all kept bugging me to play Sonic Spinball and I did and I knew it would suck and here I am two hours later emptier for having played it. Another one finished though!


I finished Sonic's campaign in 06 just now. I'm gonna need some major convincing to play this again as Shadow and Silver. It feels truly incomplete walking away now though... I don't know what to do...


I'm in the Sonic weeds for sure. This week had me playing the 3DS versions of Generations and Lost World, Tails' Skypatrol, and now Rivals 1 and 2. Of the bunch Generations 3DS is the only one that's any good. Stay FAR away from the others my god.


Speaking of Metal Gear, they really need to remaster the best game in the series.


I was in a shit mood today at work... overwhelmed by it all, and stuck listening to an outside contractor's shitty music. After they left someone put this album on and totally turned my mood around. Thank you Lightning Bolt for being the best, as always.


I'm at the point in my Sonic series playthrough where I'm avoiding 06 to play the alternate versions of other games... Just finished Generations 3DS and it was great (with some exceptions) and I've got Lost World 3DS installing now. Here we go.


Sonic series run update: Lost World is finished. I actually liked this better than Colors in the end, although it was more uneven, it had higher highs and lower lows. It was a visual treat. Reminded me of the old 3D bonus levels. Not bad.


Finished Sonic Colors (Wii). I'm surprised to find I enjoyed the 3D game more than its 2D counterpart, but then Colors is still largely 2D either way. The characterization and narrative was cute and unoffensive, the worlds were fun, and it had good music!


Oh, nice. Sonic Colors (Wii) is actually pretty decent so far! Go figure.


Stayed up late to finish Sonic and the Black Knight. Honestly, this one would have been fine without waggle controls, and was generally an improvement over the Secret Rings. But seriously though, when are Sonic and Amy going to just fuck already?


OK. This is a joke right? Sonic and the Secret Rings wasn't ACTUALLY a game that people developed and spent a portion of their life working on. It can't be. It isn't real and I refuse to believe it. IT'S TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN!


I finished Sonic Heroes and thought there's no way it could get worse. Well folks, Shadow the Hedgehog is off my backlog now too and my fucking god. MY GOD. What a mess. I'm speechless. Who thought this was a good idea?! HOW DID THIS GET MADE? 06 is next!


I just finished Knuckles' Chaotix (NOT a good 2D Sonic game unfortunately). This marks the completion of every single 2D Sonic game that isn't a spin-off. 24 games. It's the 3D mess from here on out.


Sonic Series progress: Advance 2 and 3 done. Sonic Rush done, and just about wrapped up on Rush Adventures. Just did a few more levels in Heroes. The Adv. games are genuinely great, Rush Adventures is way better than 1, and Heroes is profoundly terrible.


Two more games down in my Sonic... adventure. Sonic Labyrinth and Sonic the Hedgehog: Pocket Adventure. The former was a mildly decent 30 minute distraction, but Pocket Adventure is a new series favorite. It's based of 2 sure, but it stands on its own! <3


I decided yesterday I'd get back to my comprehensive Sonic 2D AND 3D series run. Played Sonic Chaos, Sonic Blast, Sonic 3D Blast, a bit of Chaotix, and a few levels of Heroes today. I say again: Sonic fans love picking pieces of corn out of piles of shit.


Hot take time: TimeSplitters 2 gets all the attention, but Future Perfect was a better game by almost every observable metric. Was it just a too little too late thing at the end of a generation?


Six levels in and Nightmare Creatures is exactly the sort of terrible janky game I was in the mood for. It's bad, but in a sort of good way.


I might need to set right a VERY old wrong. I rented Nightmare Creatures as a kid and never finished it. Do I emulate the PS1/N64 version or do the PC port? Not a lot of info on the version differences. Any Nightmare Creatures nerds out there?


Got the urge to play TimeSplitters. Never did the first one so I just ran through that really quick in PCSX2. Uh, this "game" is basically a proof of concept demo! Wow! No wonder we all only ever talk about the second one. 9 barebones levels. No story. Ha
