    The Unleashed Project have recreated (and slightly tweaked) a handful of the stages from Sonic Unleashed in the Sonic Generations engine, and released it as a mod for the PC version of Generations. They look fantastic, running at 1080p and 60 fps, in addition to running on a better engine overall, with a better camera and improved control. In the video below, he runs through all of the stages. Obviously, the quick-time events had to be re-imagined as different kinds of reflex challenges to recreate the layout of the stages, as Generations does not have this mechanic. For any PC players with fairly recent hardware who are fans of the modern Sonic gameplay as introduced in Unleashed and continued in Generations, this is a fantastic mod. I should note that this has existed for three years now. I just found out about it now. :p

    Hello, friends. jp! Also Sithman, SFL and Aragorn from posts 5 years ago.

    Is there a TLDR of that 77 page Connemara missing in Afghanistan thread? That’s so Connemara.

    I probably need to talk about blue snaeks on teh force boat until we reach 5000 posts here.

    Welp.

    I feel sorry for those kids, and I’ll just leave it at that.

    I’m going to have to send that to Bib and PB on Facebook.

    Good to see you too, jp. Hope everything is good with you and the family. Your kids must be grown adults by now. Making me feel old. :p

    I've been asking this around and maybe the Games forum will be able to help:

    Does anyone know of a good article online that gives a general overview of in-game transactions and markets in Galaxies and TOR? Especially the sort of player-made products and customization market that existed in the former?

    I knew sacrificing those old game discs would have consequences...but this. This is truly horrifying.

    Pretty surprising how many people are taking Stadia seriously. OnLive 2.0. It'll fail.

    This article was my first introduction to it. Google's operating budget is not to be trifled with.

    Are they planning to magically bring good internet to rural areas and other countries as well? At the very least, it won't have widespread acceptance, and traditional consoles will continue to live on into the foreseeable future. Maybe I'm just having a "get off my lawn" moment, but the idea of streaming fast paced games like fighters and twitchy first-person shooters is a nightmare I don't intend to entertain.

    Eldest turns 18 next week. Youngest just 14, so a while until they're all out of the house.

    Hey Bibby. How many kids you got now?

    Also, this.
