At the mental hospital I'm currently at for people who've been living in their rooms not coming out of the house out of fear for years, it's now been almost 6 months and I've lost 20kg now since I started and can now work in a local coffee shop because my social skills have improved so much.

My CPA (the general review of things) is this Thursday...while at first I hated being here I now realize it's pretty much saved my entire life!

And I can't forget the people who've followed me for a while now because of my work...thank you guys =) 
A new enemy being added to my game
This alien toad this gets the honor of being the 2nd ever enemy made in my game....isn't he cute? =)
It's been a few days since I've uploaded something but you can rest assured that I'm not quitting developing my game anytime soon! 

I can't wait to see how fun it is when finished =)
A new move for my game.
Inspired by my first impressions of playing samus returns and using the melee counter, I've since wanted to do the same thing but expand upon it massively. Basically in my game you'd now be able to roll out of the way of danger and, if you manage to do it at the last second before the enemy attacks (there'd be visual cues like in samus returns) you'd be rewarded with an ultra powerful attack that does more damage the lower the health you currently have. Pretty neat right? 

Any thoughts? =)
Just got Metroid Samus Returns legacy edition and have now actually played the game...

legitimately 10/10 game of the year for me. Don't be fooled by its low frame rate or whatever as this game is LEGENDARY!!!!!!

The graphics look clean and colorful yet still pretty detailed. The gameplay feels fluid and natural to control. The music feels very atmospheric. Overall it's just fantastic!
OK so it seems Sega has caught themselves in a tiny bit of controversy in regards to the recent sonic forces footage (or really the whole of the post-2010 era for that matter) with how people are tired of green hill zone and classic sonic...not to mention the "shitty music" and "awful art style" which I agree aren't very good to people like us. It seems more and more people are slowly, but surely, getting sick of sega's tricks and nostalgia pandering and I'm here to present a potential solution.

So you have classic sonic getting mania and modern fans are getting forces...but aren't we forgetting a certain group of fans? That's right, adventure fans (people who mainly like the adventure games over everything else). People such as I who very much to this day unironically like sonic adventure 1 and 2 are for some reason getting the cold shoulder in regards to content aimed at their sort of audience. Where's the multiple playable characters? Where's the new stories that aren't crammed full of jokes? Where's the balance of platforming and speed found in the adventure games? Where's the awesome rock themed music that many loved in past games? Why is this all gone?

While sega has no responsibility to cater to the demands of people like us, if they for some reason want to satisfy as many fans as possible, I think they should do the following...

1. Give classic fans more mania-esque titles

2. Give modern fans more games like sonic colors

3. Give adventure fans something that plays like sonic adventure (and wasn't rushed to death like 06)that has an "edgy" story, humans, multiple playable characters, a chao garden and some sense of coolness that we feel is sorely lacking in today's titles.

While there's certainly a lot more currently un-catered types of fans than just adventure fans, I'm pretty sure that deep down they'd love another sonic game that at least has some of the core elements of an adventure game. Multiple playable characters and a more series storyline are things that the fanbase has wanted for some time now and I think it'd be cool of sega to try pleasing them (even if other fans have already labeled them as "insatiable").

I know I'm asking for a lot (an entire game is nothing to just brush off) and that we may not necessarily be the majority of the fan base (though tbh I don't really know for sure)...but if I can be honest, the reason why I've not bought any sonic game since generations is due to the lack of things I mentioned previously and I felt the need to vent my frustrations that sega and other fans just don't seem to understand.

I don't know if this will make any difference but I just wanted to try shouting into the void to see if it'll bring about some good. That's all for now, bye!

yo!!! metroid prime 4 hype bud! i cannot wait too see this new game! nintendo had BETTER not mess this up because this is their last chance for a good metroid game believe it or not!

i also saw metroid return of samus i think i may want too get a good look for SR388 myself.... i have never played metroid II return of samus since i wasn't born at that time.... but i seriously hope they don't screw any of this up! the ONLY good thing about federation force, was the sylux easter egg at the end.

Yeah I saw it live...I was just silent in pure shock. I couldn't believe my eyes that we got not one but TWO metroid games! This is like a dream come true!! I really hope they both sell well and are received well.

While samus returns is being developed by the castlevania mirror of fates guys and retro isn't working on prime 4, I'm still excited that we're just getting more metroid at all as it wasn't too long ago that people (like me) had pretty much given up on there never being another one. I'm glad I was wrong!

hey same here! i actually fell off my chair in complete shock as well and pretty much went ape s*it over the opening intro of metroid prime 4! it's like a new Sector X Sector Y And Sector Z from star fox! that was freaking AWESOME! i am REALLY REALLY glad nintendo finally proved people wrong (for now) and i seriously hope they don't mess anything up! they have been doing EXTREMELY well with the nintendo switch they had better not make the same mistake like those next generation games bas***ds did with federation force, although again i was really impressed with the whole sylux cameo at the end which is a very nice touch and the only saving grace of federation force.

i just hope metroid samus returns will be a great game, i never played metroid II and sadly i wasn't very fond of it... but i think this new game will be awesome!

huh i didn't know that i don't know anything about castlevania as i never played it but i seriously hope they won't mess up like next generation games who seriously need a life. a pity retro isn't working on prime 4... but this new company had better not mess up this game! this is their last chance at saving metroid!

i am sorry too hear that, too be honest i was more like 70% still having hope and 30% giving up. because nintendo is a stupid company for making us fans suffer and stealing our money..... but i know nintendo isn't THAT stupid too treat us THIS poorly! i mean come on! they blessed us with super metroid in 1994 which i recently found out that super metroid was suppose too be cancelled 3x in 1994... but thank god it got released as the GREATEST metroid game ever! same with metroid prime 1 these 2 games will NEVER be beaten in my life for how perfected these games were! although too me? nintendo failed horribly for metroid prime 2 as i wasn't a fan of the plot... not only that but the graphics in metroid prime 2 were much worse then metroid prime 1. oh well i just hope HOPE nintendo makes metroid prime 4 be a little like super metroid and metroid prime 1's awesomeness levels!

well i am glad you think otherwise now XD we should give nintendo a break for now.... maybe then they might bless us with the greatest metroid prime game in history of gaming... although i know this is pushing it a little....
