Hello, been a long while.

@  Ishapar : (21 March 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I guess people are complaining about the site being dead. Can't help too much since I no longer have a computer, but I will check up with y'all here and there.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 March 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Both really, though she added more to the latter one over the past weekend

You mean with the Hermione was black all along, or the Dumbledore was secretly gay?

I am absoultely convinced JK Rowling is trying hard to stay relevant.

I mostly just check in to validate new users and to zap spambots. Obviously, we get far, far more spambots.

@  randomizer : (17 March 2019 - 12:08 AM)

I pop in every couple of days but I don't really have much to say so I mostly just lurk.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 11:33 PM)

Not looking for anything particular here, but since we got people checking daily, I thought I'd point out that I posted a new topic in SatAM Chat. Show a guy some love and check it out.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 10:56 PM)

bout the same for me too. I honestly don't remember at this point.

@  Shadow : (14 March 2019 - 01:50 PM)

I been here since I was 14 years old.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:39 AM)

I lurk, too. Sometimes. Maybe us seniors should just meet up at a retirement village.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Hiho Wildfire!

@  wildfire : (13 March 2019 - 10:39 PM)

It doesn't help that everything i post on dies. But seriously, I do try and poke my head in from time to time. FUS was family to me for several years. I doubt I'll ever truly leave.

@  Shadow : (11 March 2019 - 04:43 PM)

I did mention before on the idea of a monthly podcast channel.

@  ShenFNWoo : (11 March 2019 - 06:06 AM)

Yeah, it's that kind of thinking that keeps this place dead, mang :\

@  wildfire : (10 March 2019 - 07:42 PM)

I still pop in from time to time. I'm like a professional lurker. As a senior member I think its fair to say I've earned that right. ;) Miss you guys.

@  ShenFNWoo : (10 March 2019 - 07:18 AM)

Rereading that, a lot of that came out completely wrong. But then again, it is a shoutbox, I don't know what the max word count is on the thing.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:25 AM)

As I've said many times before... IF the problem is that they themselves can't do it, then the guys running this place could possibly outsource in some form or fashion to people with more time to help work on this comic here. There's clearly people willing to pay for it, and even crowdfunding might be an option.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:23 AM)

There's really nothing stopping us. All we have to do is want to do this stuff.


Dr. Phil once said bored people are boring. Why a clinical psychologist who admits that most of the problem is of a functional nature within a patient's brain would believe this, I don't know, but there IS truth to that. Those who can't find something to try to work with to have or make a good time are usually just devoid of character themselves.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:21 AM)

I have a friend that's working on our game concept ideas who has major depression and horrible anxiety, 3 kids and a horrible job that takes up most of his day. He constantly gets on some of our team member's cases (even mine) about how there's 24 hours a day, and how Schwartzenegger's motivational speech can do wonders for us.

So who's got Mania? Enjoying it? Critics are giving it glowing reviews.  I can't wait to play it myself, but it was delayed for us PC plebs.

My thoughts on the game:
I honestly thought it was okay.
I mean, execution-wise, this game was solidly top-notch. It really did feel like an authentic, lost 32X/Saturn game at times. And the number of callbacks were also a welcomed addition.
But in terms of the overall structure... I dunno. It felt like there was something missing that would've made it an experience worth remembering. Maybe it was the reuse of older levels and/or the vague ending. It didn't feel complete if you know what I mean.
Another problem I might have with it is the abundance of machine/factory-themed levels. They weren't bad or anything, but there was just too many of them and it all sorta blends together after a while. I would've preferred more level themes.
But that's what the DLC will be for, apparently, along with extra playable characters.

My biggest gripe is the Local Co-op.


I'm ever so grateful that they included the classic styled Sonic and Tails Co-op, but it really shows the down side to that style of teamwork.  For one, many of the stages, Tails might as well not be there, Sonic can zip through without any issues, and two, there's this horrible delay that player 2 can't control Tails for about 2 seconds after he arrives, causing Sonic to not progress for those 2 seconds to let player 2 take control.  


I can't really say what they'd have to do to fix it, but it does make me miss the Sonic Advance 3 and even Sonic 4's Co-op.

Hmm, looks like Mania is an attempt to relive the classics before trying anything too new or memorable which maybe a smart move on Sega's part.  I am thinking about getting it sometime, but probably not until the price goes down.

Before honor comes humility.


The Most High God created this world we live in, and He created man in His image for Himself.  Whether we like it or not doesn't change the truth nor does it change the consequences.
