  1. I figured I'd go ahead and make a thread for people to vent about things in gaming they would want to change, but also things that they believe is positive about the current state of gaming. Anything goes that is gaming related. http://playstationenthusiast.com/article/why-isnt-online-free-for-consoles/ I'll start with one that I find a bit puzzling; two of the main console companies putting online play behind a paywall: Xbox Live, and PSN+. Why do the users of these consoles, myself included, pay upward of $60 a year for it when Nintendo and PC are free? For me personally, the reason I pay for PSN+ is for the free games and the server storage of my saved games/files, which I find pretty equitable; also, all the extra discounts you get with it. However, since opening a Steam account, which is free that also gives me cloud saves and files and such, plus games with even more discounts, it makes me question my spending an extra $60 a year for it. Anyway, wot are some of your peeves/praises of the gaming industry?
  2. [So much like my Godzilla Theories Topic, this was also another soap box for my insanity. However that wouldn't be fair to this genre of video games I'm so fond of so I'm expanding it to a full on discussion and appreciation of this niche genre. So on here we get to chat about these games and I can also inform you guys and others about various series and games from it. I hope you guys enjoy as I share my love for this genre that's been around since the dawn of video games themselves. ] http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShootEmUp Welcome one and all to theories regarding video games in the Shoot Em Up Genre, also known as SHMUP. It's a personal favorite genre of mine in video games with a TON of history ranging all the way back to Space Wars, Space Invaders, Galaxian, Galaga, Scramble, and a bunch more. Now originally I wanted to make a whole topic in the Video Game Section but I wasn't sure if that would gain any traction. On that note and the main reason why I made this topic is I have a few theories here and there, mainly two for now regarding two particular Series, that being R-Type and The Tale of Alltynex Trilogy. Now bare with me as in order for these theories to work is that they have to cross over with other SHMUP Series made by other publishers and developers, but I have my reasons for these theories and how they make sense to me, I hope you guys enjoy and let me know what you think about these theories and if you guys want me to make a SHMUP Topic in the Video Game Section. I mean that would save a lot of space rather then having seperate topics for EVERY shmup series, regardless here we go. And of course, spoilers are involved. R-Type Theory: The Other Civilization...are from Gradius!? This is going into some very obscure territory but for Clarification they are a 3rd faction for the Japan Only game R-Type Tactics II: Operation Bitter Chocolate. Funny name I know but let me go on. http://rtype.wikia.com/wiki/Other_Civilization They are an apparent alien race that was never established until this recent entry in the R-Type Series. In R-Type Final, the last SHMUP R-Type it is found out that the mysterious Bydo Empire that you have fought throughout the entire series are in fact a man-made Biological Weapon designed by us in the 26th Century to wipe out our enemies. The Bydo ended up going rampant of course so we transported the Bydo into another dimension, which led to them finding us in the 22nd Century kickstarting the whole series. Now Humanity's Enemies are never mentioned by name but since the release of Tactics II it's theorized that this Other Civilization as they are only known as are those enemies we end up fighting in the 26th Century...but who are they? We are never given any other info regarding them sadly but since then fans have left that as that and called it a day, except me anyway. What would you say that I have an idea on who these enemies are, in fact they might be..the Gradians from Gradius! If you look at one of the particular ships from them in the link I provide you, one ship suspiciously looks like that of a Big Core from Gradius, which sparked this whole theory for me. Now that's not enough I know BUT as seen in the Gradius sub-series Otomedius there is an organization of Gradians who travel from other dimensions to establish defense forces to fight their own enemies The Bacterians. It's not too crazy to assume that they could be from Gradius or are at least related to the Gradians, though Core Weapons however are a weapon of Gradius' enemies, unless you look into the obscure Gradius game Gradius NEO, which is an Older Cell Phone game taking place long after the Bacterians are defeated where the Lars Empire separates itself from the Gradius Union and uses both Gradian and Bacterian Tech to fight against them. The way I see it this Gradian Faction or The Lars Empire got attacked by The Bydo in Tactics II, ended up finding Earth around the 26th Century and ended up causing all these events to happen, I like the idea of them getting wiped by a very similar threat to what they once faced. That or this Other Civilization is Humanity from further into the future which would just be the ultimate irony right there. X_X The Tale of Alltynex Theory: The 5 Missing Alltynex Units are actually Super Computers from other SHMUPs Unlike in the first theory I'm going to keep this much more shorter then the previous theory because there is WAY too much backstory to explain in this series even for shmup standards, as in some of the biggest lore I've ever seen a Shmup Series so much that you can by a PDF book regarding everything that goes on what the details are. Basically this Senate on Earth plans their Illuminati like scheme of a new world order by using Humanity's super computer Alltynex OS to wipe out a majority of mankind, they powered it using an artifact called the ZODIAC Core...and by using the OS and Core to connect with 6 other Alltynex Units from different dimensions in order to do all this. It ends up going rampant for real though sparking the events of Alltynex 2nd. Now the 2nd stands for what The Tale of Alltynex Continuity refer to this Alltynex as this Senate call theirs the 2nd. Now Alltynex 2nd is in fact a remake of the FM-Towns game Alltynex, and it's been said that the original game's Alltynex is in fact the designated 1st Unit...but what about the other 5? Heck you could make a whole series off of the Alltynex games alone aside from the Tale of Alltynex Trilogy, however I'd like to offer my own take on what these missing 5 units are. The 1st unlike the 2nd does not have a ZODIAC Core as the ZODIAC Weapons don't exist in the original, so you don't need one for it to be an Alltynex device. What if the other 5 Units aren't called Alltynex in Their Worlds...what if we've been fighting off The Senate's After Effects of their plan the whole time throughout the years in other SHMUPs, here's a list of what these "Alltynex" Units/Super Computers could possibly be. 3rd - Xaerous Brain (from Gradius) 4th - System/Unknown Named AI (from Zanac/Aleste Series) 5th - Bydo Core (from R-Type) 6th - Cha OS (from Thunder Force) 7th - Con-Human (from The RAY Series) These are ALL Super Computers, most of which have Biological Components (some more or less then others, or none at all) and sparked the major conflicts of their respective series, now you can replace or completely redo this list if you wish, but ever since listening to the Tale of Alltynex's wonderful soundtrack again it occurred to me that whenever a Shmup has a Rampant Super Computer AI, I could be possibly still fighting the after effects of The Senate and their twisted plan, if you take this theory with a grain of salt then that could make them one of the greatest antagonists in SHMUP History. Even now the effects of Alltynex could still be felt across space and time... Thank you for reading this and if you have your own theories then post them if you like and please respond afterwards, later!
  3. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FightingGame http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BeatEmUp Hello again everyone and welcome to a topic that was long overdue, in here we get to enjoy talking about our favorite Brawlers & Fighters! I mean really I'm surprised I didn't do this one sooner as like Shmups I'm a huge fan of both genres myself and unlike Shmups chances are many to almost all of you have brushed into them and didn't even realize it. I mean you have you're standard 2D Fighters (Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Guilty Gear), 3D Fighters (Virtua Fighter, Tekken, Dead or Alive), and Beat em Ups (Double Dragon, Final Fight, Streets of Rage) that you may have heard of but the depth of these genres are often tied together and cross over with different sub genres and elements appearing in other games. You got you're Mascot/Platform Fighters (Super Smash Bros, Rival of Aether, Onimusha Blade Warriors), the Hack n' Slash games where you use weapons (Golden Axe, Dynasty Warriors, The King of Dragons) and Spectacle Fighters/Character Action Games (Devil May Cry, No More Heroes, Bayonetta). Not to mention the differences between Fighters such as "Anime" Fighters (Guilty Gear, Blazblue, Melty Blood) and those mentioned above, along with Fighters that mainly use Weapons (Soul Calibur, Samurai Shodown, Weaponlord). Even some of you're favorite games could be considered Fighters or Beat em Ups in such a way like the Diablo Series, Kingdom Hearts, even the Batman Arkham Series has it's roots in Brawlers of the past if you couldn't tell. With these two genres having such a broad meaning throughout the years this is why I made this topic if only to not making stagnant topics covering each individual series and game (As that would drive everyone crazy and clutter the forums), so for all you fans of Fists, Blades, and seemingly endless armies of baddies to take down this place is for you. So share some of your favorite games of these Genres and discuss, what you like about them, what you don't, anything regarding some of our favorite classics and current games, even upcoming ones that you can come across. ARE YOU READY? FIGHT!
  4. Here's an idea I had, similar to the Reconstructed stuff. That seems to be more about the stories themselves, but I want to discuss the most important part of the story: The characters. Let's be honest, Sonic characters aren't the most fantastic out there. I generally see them as characters that have oceans of potential, and most of them are very good ideas, but they're hamstrung by SEGA's practices, and particularly in the modern era, but as I've said on another thread, the troubles really began around Sonic Heroes. That said, maybe you'll want to go back to the beginning to rework it all from there, I don't know. Let's start with the obvious one: How would you handle Sonic himself?
  5. So after perusing sonic retro a while back in search of interesting and unique mod's, I came across this image here: from what I could surmise it was some conceptualised artwork from when sonic heroes was being developed, in particular the creation of a flight type character for team rose who would be later known as cream the rabbit. In the end this led me to try my hand at drawing each of them, which inspired me to challenge myself by creating the following images ; first up is a drawing of cream quite, heheh, "beside herself" : (aren't I just hilarious?!) And the second is a sort of "what if?" combining a little bit of each design onto the finalised rabbit we've come to know: well seems I'm the first person to post visual artwork on the site as a post rather than a reply, feedback is appreciated and I hope I'm doing this right.
  6. Well of course metal sonic and shadow have been included in Sonic Boom along with the rest of the classic sonic cast but recently news of other characters will make an appearance as well. And well it's confirmed. Vector has now been confirmed and will officially appear in an episode. This thread will devote to characters of the Sega sonic cast that may make an appearance. Also, discuss if they add anything new for boom or are just bait for pandering to Sega sonic fan.
  7. According to a source on Sonic Stadium, which I'm trying to verify so take this with a grain of salt for the time being, Sega has been displeased by the prospects of Sonic Boom and Sega is ready to pull the plug on Boom upon the completion of Boom's Second Season. As some of you are aware, Boom was Sega of America's internal project, seen as a chance to make something more appealing to the Western audiences. It has gained ground in Japan, however, SoJ executives are rumored to be "displeased" with the returns, citing poor game sales + reviews, low merchandising sales, and a lack of interest for the Cartoon (though this could be to the early air times for the first season and moved to Boomerang for the 2nd season). It appears Sega is ready to just pull the plug on everything Boom related. The Original plans seemed to be there was going to be a trifecta of sorts for Sonic: Modern, Boom, & Spinoffs. This would have been alternating every year (so one year a Modern game, next a Boom, then a spinoff, repeat.) The rumor states that Boom will be replaced by Classic, due to how beloved the classics seem to be as of late. If this is true, it appears Classic Sonic will remain a large part of the franchise going forward. If Mania does well, then we will probably seeing more of Classic Sonic. Again, take this with a grain of salt for the time being, I'll try to verify and we will see how things go. THIS INFORMATION WILL CHANGE AS SOON AS I GET UPDATES, SEE UPDATES, VERIFY, OR FROM SEGA THEMSELVES. Do you think it's right to pull the plug on Boom? Thoughts on Boom? How do you feel about more Classic Sonic? Tell us in the comments.
