Posts I've Made
27 April 2013 - 08:50 PMI have the same laptop model (or very similar.) All I have to say is good luck, I'm interested to know the results because getting this thing apart is half the battle. I suggest Youtube to help you get it apart, I've taken mine apart only once to clean it and 100000 screws later I decided it wasn't worth it to totally disassemble it.
19 April 2013 - 01:46 PMOther than Generations I haven't really played any modern Sonic games (anything after S3&K) so I have to say instashield is quite fun. Anyone with any skill can easily plow through the game as Sonic, the other two characters are too dull without insta shield. The shield upgrades for Sonic are awesome as well, making him a way better choice for speedruns than Tails or Knuckles, and making the game signficantly easier as Sonic.
28 March 2013 - 08:22 AMIf this gets released on PSN then I'll be interested, but I hate playing games on my phone. I don't have a fancy $2000 phone with spectacular service, and I prefer not to play phone games anyway.
I bought Sonic 2 on PSN already though.
20 February 2013 - 10:14 PMThe only thing hard about this level is the length and the amount of time they give you to beat it, otherwise it's not any harder than the other zones. You have to haul ass to finish or you're going to time over, you don't have any time to explore. I guess getting a time over isn't that bad, just a loss of life and restarting at the next checkpoint. By this point I usually have like 50 lives anyway.
17 February 2013 - 02:25 AMI'll admit, most of my love for Sonic 2 is nostalgia. I remember my mom opening the box for our Genesis - freshly packed with Sonic 2, my first video game ever. This was for Christmas '93, I would've been 5. My mom wasn't a particularly loving mother, she never did things with me or even hugged me really. Some of my few loving memories with her involve Sonic 2, she actually sat down and played it with me a few times. We played through Emerald Hill Zone together which was amaaaaazing! I can remember every frustration I felt with Sonic 2. I kept drowning in Chemical Plant Zone and Aquatic Ruin Zone, I had trouble against the boss in Casino Night Zone, I'd get caught up in the earthquakes in Hill Top Zone, I got stuck in a pit that was inescapable and full of spikes in Mystic Cave Zone, I kept dying in Oil Ocean Zone, Metropolis Zone was long and hard for a little kid, and finally, Wing Fortress gave me trouble yet again at the boss. Oh, and another memory I have of Sonic 2 was around Christmas '95, my mom was making christmas cookies and stuff, I remember being frustrated from Wing Fortress Zone and FINALLY beating the boss for the first time in my life. Guess what happened after that? Yup, Death Egg rapin'! I couldn't beat that fucking boss for YEARS. I was 7 when I made it to him the first time. I was 17 when I downloaded Sonic 2 onto my computer and finally beat that piece of shit for the first time. Sonic 2 took me years to beat! But I still love it to pieces. So much nostalgia.
I love Sonic 3 + Knuckles, but I don't have the same nostalgic memories for that one. My mom got them on eBay in the late 90s and before that, I had only played Sonic 3 once when we rented. Don't get me wrong, I love Sonic 3 + Knuckles! It just didn't have the same appeal to me when I beat it in literally 2 days. Oh, and at this time, I still couldn't beat the final boss in Sonic 2 and I was hating Sonic 1 because of Labyrinth Zone. I got the true ending without looking up guides online, I figured out you could start Angel Island Zone/Mushroom Hill Zone on the file select, get a chaos emerald, then reset the Genesis to get another. It took me 10 seconds to figure out jumping wasn't getting me anywhere on the barrel in Carnival Night Zone, so I tried the only thing left, by pressing up and down simultaneously. Sonic 3 just isn't as awesome as Sonic 2, but it's still a great game.
p.s. Sonic 2 > Sonic CD > Sonic Generations > Sonic 3 & K > Sonic 1 > your mom > dog shit > vomit > Sonic 06 > Sonic Heroes
