Having been abandoned by society, I was raised to adulthood by wild computers. Most of the stupid things I did were during the internet&#039;s early days, back when Overclocked was an emulation comic instead of a remix site, so there&#039;s no way you&#039;d find out about them now.<br /> <br /> (I hope.)

    I continue to be amazed at the fallout surrounding this.

    As a veteran of the series, this is gonna be a hard sell to me. I'm tired of tank builds that go down in a couple hits. I'm tired of an inventory system that only lets you carry and store twenty out of millions of guns. (Imagine if Pokemon only gave you one storage box.)

    Borderlands 1 and 2 stand out to me now for how they get worse on subsequent playthroughs. They always end up badly balanced, as if no one in the development team realized what kind of game they were actually making.

    Like the original Shantae, Earthbound badly needs a remake. For one, I would have really liked to see a condiment box to carry all my spices and dressings in. I just never wanted to use them because a tiny packet of sugar took up as much space as a super deluxe pizza.

    There was a Steam update just now that added offline playability, but I'm still a bit miffed. I wouldn't go so far as to call Denuvo malware, but adding it to a $20 game as opposed to a $60 triple-A game is just ridiculous. I don't know if it's due to paranoia or sleaziness or something else, but I'm amazed at how after 23 years, Sega still retains the ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Still looks merely OK, like it was better when it was called "Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams".

    @VotesForCows Nope. So THAT'S what Mr. Pither meant when he said his Crunchie was still intact.

    @Roto13 Ow, I wouldn't say Sonic CD is THAT bad. I'd say it merely failed to reach the goals it set for itself. The levels aren't designed to be exploration friendly and it's way too easy to stumble upon the end of the stage, at which point you're forbidden from backtracking to find that transporter and hologram projector you traveled to the past for. In fact, there's not much point in time traveling anywhere but the past; the future levels barely have any difference from the present aside from their tile sets. When played like a normal Sonic game, it's rather nice, but that just makes its ambition a shame and a waste.

    I know you did your best to cover everything you could, but since you included Tails' Sky Patrol, I'm surprised you missed Tails' Adventure. It was quite a competent Metroid-like where you visited multiple stages, collected tools and upgrades, and explored a vacation island as you sought to kick the Battle Bird Armada off it. Tails started showing off more of his mechanical genius in it with his remote robot that could transform into a flying submarine, and it was honestly one of the best Game Gear games ever developed.

    @Admiral-Fyyar I'd say it's best to advocate for a per-act save system for now. Sonic Mania CAN be patched, after all. Then make sure everyone buys it more than they buy Sonic Forces. That will ensure that we'll get a Sonic Mania 2, where we can pitch more daring ideas similar to the rewind function in The Disney Afternoon Collection.

    @Admiral-Fyyar Maybe. But I think I'd rather not see save states or anything close to it in the game. I'm heavily into emulation myself and I speak from experience when I say that save states will spoil you rotten.

    I think I'd rather see something like the golden leaf in Super Mario 3D Land/World, but it's really hard to picture that in a Sonic game, since traditionally Sonic is supposed to be the anti-Mario. But then again, maybe the S-Monitor, which gives you a temporary Super state, could fill that role. It's an item you usually see in Sonic's debug mode, but it never appears in the game proper.
