Yeah, it's been mentioned a few times that the person saying that, Wentos (Sonic Unleashed side mission NPC name) on 4chan, lied. Though the same person saying Wentos was making shit up, also made a point that the Central City composition of Diamond Dust MegaDrive sounds exactly like a midi by John Weeks, but slowed down.

This is actually a relief. I no longer have to live in regret that i'll never hear the "original" soundtrack for this game that could've made it better because of licensing issues or whatever.

is the sonic chronicles website thingy backed up on flashpoint? i know there was sort of a "game" on it in which you ran around three areas and collected rings (Very Important for the ring counter)

also i'm sorry raocow but due to giving up on a math game made for elementary schoolers i must hereby declare you a himbo

If this picture doesn't sum up the Sonic Chronicles experience, i don't know what does.

It occurs to me that this game could've benefited from the practice of re-using the Sonic 1 Green Hill Zone song.

This is Big's last real role for quite a while (I'm not even sure he has a bit of story in Runners), so suck it up while you can.

Also, his model is pretty clearly the best so far, good for him.

Was i too hasty with this one and there were probably better opportunities awaiting? Sure. Do i regret it? No.

Re: "why does the game let you be such a butt in dialogue", it reminds me of the morality system in Mass Effect, another Bioware game. As opposed to Star Wars KOTOR where you had Light Side and Dark Side as actual things in-universe (so it made more sense for them to be a game mechanic), Mass Effect simply has Paragon and Renegade, which from my experience boiled down to "decent person" or "jerk" more often than not. Even tho Sonic Chronicles doesn't seem to have a morality system, i'm getting the same vibes from its dialogue trees. It may not be integrated into gameplay, but the choice to be a jerk if you want is still there.

For a second, i was wondering how you'd get to this Emerald Town place that Little Boy (iconic new Sonic character) mentioned was his home. But then the item-get dialog said Central City instead and "Emerald Town" is apparently an error?

This is a few days late, but i am somewhat appalled that if you question why you should be working with GUN, the game just assumes you don't know what GUN is.

If you like Earthbound's run away instantly mechanic, you might appreciate Persona 4 and Suikoden. Persona 4, last I heard (this was roughly the early 10s), has the same mechanic. It's a bit harder to get into with the demon recruiting and fusing though, I believe.

Suikoden, when you outrank the enemies, your running option turns to "sparing", and it works 100%.

Being able to always run away due to being super leveled is always the best. Thanks for telling me where Cheese is, I thought that was just a wall, good map design.

The kid just being an item reminds me of Tandi from Fallout 1.




also of course raocow does the scorpion fight that knocked me out repeatedly in one go

Hey, raocow, which recording of "Papa Don't Preach" is the episode titled for?
I couldn't find one with the exact subtitle, but I found multiple covers from that year, and at least one remix.
Thanks!

Been catching up with this over the past couple nights. I think I remember you saying in one of the earlier episodes that "the missing feels so bad, this is why I don't play RPGs" or something to that effect?
Not to be one of those "hey raocow you should play more RPGs" people, but I would say it's important to remember that in most good RPGs if you're missing a lot there's a reason for it - be it "your funny weapon has a low hit rate", "the enemy is explicitly very evasive", "you tried to attack a bird with someone other than Wakka" or what have you - and there's usually something you can do about it. Most RPGs aren't... this.

I think the fact that the hawks can Evading with their first action and then keep attacking you while they're still invulnerable is the most offensive thing so far tbh. I assume (or rather would hope) "can't miss" attacks can get through Evading, but uh, fat lot of good that knowledge does when you pick your actions before they do it? :v

this is legitimately the worst part of ffx, i made kimahri into a semi-multipurpose physical attacker because of it

i think my final party was Teeds (for Haste), Auron and Kimahri and the occasional "calling Yuna to get her butt in the arena to heal some bitches"

the upside is that the story is really fucking good
