  1. The Jest added a post in a topic The Happy Birthday Thread   

    Much like last year, though I'm still a bit of ghost here. Thought I'd come back to give my gratitude to you all for remembering. One of my new year's resolution is to get crap done so that I can get back here ASAP. ...A Resolution I probably had last year too, but...well...
     

     
    Anyways, Thank you all for the birthday wishes.

    While technically I'm supposed to keep myself away from here until my projects are done with...Eh, I suppose one post to say thank you wouldn't hurt.
     
    So Thanks everyone, I appreciate it. ^_^

    Character Theme Song Finding
    Let me first say I had NO Idea where to put this thing. I originally thought of putting it in the Multiverse of Sonic section, but I figured, since this is essentially interactive (As redundant as that may sound on a forum.) and has sort-of rules to it (More guidelines than rules, really.), I felt it would best be placed here in the Party sector.

    Now, I'm sure one of you has seen one of
    before, they're all over the place on youtube, made by several sonic fans. The concept is simple enough, make a slide-show video showing an image of characters and a theme that they believe best fits them as unofficial themes to use in, say, games.

    Looking at a few recently, I've been inspired to make a topic about theme song finding, and here we are.

    Now, the point of this topic is Perspective. ...I want you to make a list of characters, with the songs that you think best fit them. Think those character theme videos in a forum format.

    There are a few things to take note of though:

    1. NO ALREADY-MADE SONIC SONGS, ESPECIALLY CRUSH 40! These are official theme songs, so it's really unfair to use them. Of course they fit the characters like a glove, they were MADE to fit them. I wanna hear what YOU think they should be, not what Sega MADE them be.

    2. They do not have to be 100% accurate. I've stated before that a true theme song works as a Theme, and as a Song. Save for the ones that were actually made for it, no song in the world were made to perfectly fit these guys. Think of it more as your opinion of what the character is to you in Melody format.

    3. If you can help it, I advise staying away from Mainstream. In the end, Numb, Poker face, etc. It's more interesting to go for the songs that not everyone really knows about. Makes it interesting and gives way to perhaps give a more unknown star a little more attention. However, I am NOT prohibiting them. I believe there's a few that could be considered at the least popular in my list. If you really feel they are perfect for the characters you choose then by all means, go right ahead.

    4. Due to the...*Ahem* "Sensitivity" of language in this site. If you have a song that holds some swearing or questionable material or anything like that, I'll allow it, but I need you to tag that link with an "(Explicit)" warning like so as a heads up. (Minor-Explicit) if it's not because of language outright and just about the material talked about in the song.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them.

    With that said, I'll start with showing my themes for them first. I didn't find a theme for all of them although some knows that I've tried, (Especially disappointed that I couldn't find one for Metal Sonic of all things, Sorry MS fans. ;_; ) and It's not exactly pitch perfect across the board. ...Some finds I'm proud of, some...Not so much. (Looking at Nicole) But I gave them these songs for one reason or another, and I hope you enjoy the playlist I have, and hopefully many more might, establish.

  4. The Jest added a post in a topic A list of God-modding   

     
    Skye said it best to a degree. But like Survivor, most of my arsenal also consists of Immortals with weaknesses.
     
    The way I see it, if it's a God that can be beaten by mortal hand, and used by someone player-wise who is humble enough to allow such a thing, then it's allowed. But there is a bit of a balance to consider...
     
    To put it simply, the more power they have, the less they can do with it. Only Final bosses are an exception to this when they become final bosses, mostly because usually they are facing a party of characters with enough experience and power to warrant it.
     
    As such, When you have a character that is actually Omnipotent, Almighty and all-powerful, ...To balance that out, that God can't be allowed to interfere or use that power at all for any interloping reason, UNLESS their power is reduced to the point where it's allowed.
     
    In regards to the Rare Weakness, or Mystical Force against said god, or in this case Goddess. Unless this entire RP revolves around this Goddess and finding this rare weakness, need it be for a hero or a villain to use against her, then it probably would not be allowed in any other RP unless this Goddess, again, isn't interfering with life to warrant someone needing to use said weakness.

    The Character, Eclipse, appeared without neither an Introduction, nor a post here. Until he does, he doesn't qualify as being in this.
     
    To be honest though, I've been so caught up in things I completely forgot about that rule.
     
    Also, Who mentioned Relic?

    A Sonic story...In 7 words or less.
    I was inspired to make this possible bit of hilarity when looking at topics in Gamefaqs.
     
    The rule of this game is fairly simple: Create a post-by-post continuing narrative involving Sonic, but with a limit of 7 words per post or less. Why 7? Because 7's apparently a magical number in this series. 7 Chaos Emeralds, for instance.
     
    For example:
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    You can use any character, make any scenario, but only in 7 words. You don't even have to complete sentences; all else fails, you can just make an incomplete sentence and let someone else fill in the blank.
     
    My only restriction is to keep it clean, and that it has to be a continuation from one post to the other.
     
    With that said: I'll start us off.

  11. The Jest added a post in a topic Your favorite Gaming Quotes.   

    "Doesn't matter how far apart we are. The bonds we've made will remain strong. Everyone's hearts is connected to the people they know and trust. It's those bonds that let us all search for our purpose in life. As long it's a purpose that you believe in, there will always be someone who could help you fulfill it. You, me, and everyone else, there are no barriers. Our hearts are one. Right, Sensei?" ~ Teddie, Persona 4
     
    "To care about someone dear to you, to strengthen the bonds of friendship... That doesn't necessarily mean that the pain of living will stop. If something's precious, you don't want to lose it. If someone's dear, it's painful to part with them. Loss can hurt, but... I don't think there's anything wrong with that." ~ Aigis, Persona 3 FES
     
    "To lose someone you had such a strong bond with is agony. But there's no need to suffer alone. You have us with you. Isn't that the whole point of forming such bonds?" ~ Mitsuru, Persona 3 FES

  12. The Jest added a post in a topic General Zelda thread   

     
    Unfortunately, the Zelda franchise is a First-party Nintendo franchise. As such, they are, like most franchises you see in Smash Bros, and Smash Bros itself by extension, Nintendo exclusive.
     
    In other words, the chances of a Zelda game being on anything except for Nintendo consoles is about equal to the chances of Nintendo axing off Mario.
     
    As for me: I am a HUGE Zelda Fan. I love everything from the gameplay to the Lore of its lands and people. I haven't played all of the games in the series...Yet. But the games I have played I've beaten...Except for Skyward Sword.
     
    These are the games I own:
     
    - The Legend of Zelda
     
    - Zelda II: The Adventures of Link
     
    - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (The original)
     
    - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (The original)
     
    - The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (The Gamecube Version)
     
    - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (The Gamecube Version)
     
    - The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
     
    - Hyrule Warriors
     
    I also used to own A Link to the Past (Both the SNES and GBA versions) But I don't have them anymore sadly.
     
    Favorite Link: It's actually difficult for me to pick which Incarnation I like the most. Every version of Link has its own characteristics and qualities that makes them an excellent variant of the character. But if I had my arm twisted to choose between them, ...I gotta say the Hero of Wind (or as he's better known: Toon Link) That version of link has a lot more freedom of expression it seems, and by extension, a lot more personality compared to the others.
     
    Favorite Zelda: This one, actually, is not as tough. Much like Link, every Zelda has its own qualities and characteristics that makes them excellent. Again, though, I gotta go with the Wind Waker version, if only for that personality of hers.
     
    Favorite Villain: At first it was Majora from Majora's Mask. The entity is such an enigmatic monster, that it's something worth trying to solve to figure out how it can create so much devastation. But after Hyrule Warriors, ...I gotta give my love to the demonic King of Evil himself, Ganondorf. The specific incarnation? ...You know what, I'm not bothering with that. It's the same person every time in this case, and I love every last incarnation.
     
    Favorite Character: Hands down, Midna. I absolutely adore that little imp! Sure she's not exactly the nicest girl around, but I love her personality, and as a companion to Link, she's by far one of the most useful ones around.
     
    Favorite Zelda Game: So difficult for me to choose. But, I gotta say Twilight Princess. Sure it doesn't have my favorite incarnation of the big 3, but I love just about every character in this game, I love the wolf mechanic, and even those Twilight areas in the beginning of the game. This game just makes me feel happy.
     
    Least Favorite Zelda Game: Skyward Sword. ...I'm trying to like it, I really am. The story of this game is good, and so far I like all the characters. (Yes, even Fi.) But I absolutely HATE the motion controls,  and being forced to use them just....Urrgh, I'm just not a fan of them.
     
    Favorite Weapon/Item: Not counting the Sword, (Which would be the Master Sword.) I gotta say Twilight Princess' Double Hookshot. Mostly because of just how fun it is to travel from wall to wall.
     
    Favorite Instrument: The Wind Waker. I've always had a personal love for Maestros.
     
    Favorite Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tb923IHkdg8

    And stop their armies with the power of HOLD IT!!
     
    And join the inevitable final climatic gang-up attack with the power of TAKE THAT!!
     
    Anyways, my own personal opinion on what going to happen with Worlds Unite, ...Yeah, to put it simply: I predict this is going to get messy, real fast.
     
    On the other hand, I personally enjoy a little bit of chaos. Plus, I can't quite tell you how ecstatic I am at seeing freaking Captain Vyse among the characters that will appear. If I see Ramirez or at least Galcian on the villain side in addition, ...I will probably react like this:

  17. The Jest added a post in a topic Freedom HQ   

    Sonic was in the Freedom HQ, sleeping on the couch for a little while. After quite a few days of fighting Eggman and his Legions, it seems things have calmed down a little. As such, for him, it meant a little bit of time to catch up on his sleep.
     
    If only things were that simple.
     
    He woke up to the sound of constant beeping from one of the computers in the room. On the plus side, at least he got his 6-hours worth, but it still made him somewhat groggy while getting up. Standing up from the couch, he moved towards the computer and turned on the communication link.
     
    "Sally to Sonic, come in Sonic!" The voice said on the other end. Of course it was Sally, who else would wake him up after stating he was going to get some rest? Still, since it is Sally, that means something's happened.
     
    "I'm here, Sal. What's up?" He asked her.
     
    "We have a bit of a situation here. It might not be a danger, but I want you to head towards the market as soon as you can. According to Nicole someone or something time-travelled and landed there." She said to him.
     
    "Time-traveled? So does that mean future-boy's back in town...again?" Sonic asked.
     
    "We don't know if it's Silver. We don't even know if he's a friend or foe at the moment, that's why I need you to get over here." Sally responded.
     
    "...Alright, copy that. I'll be there ASAP, Sal." He said. Immediately he began some stretches and quick exercises.
     
    "Just my luck, just when Eggman looks like he's taking a scheme-break, something else comes in. A hero's work is never done after all." He said as he did this. Revving up his legs upon finishing the exercises, he dashed out of the base and headed straight towards New Mobotropolis.

    "Another point? So it's a time traveler then...Nicole, you go on ahead to settle things down there. If he proves hostile, you know what to do." Sally said as she ran towards the market.
     
    -------------
     
    "Edited...?" Antoine asked, confused by what this Mobian meant, but even more so when he said that he didn't know what they were talking about.
     
    "Sorry, but you're gonna have to show some proof of that." Bunnie said to Coda. They both saw Tails heading to their side.
     
    "Pardon my rudeness, Tails. But I don't think we can be anymore ready than we already are." Antoine said, still pointing his sword at Coda.

    In Persona 3, the Main Protagonist (Of whom I name Minato Arisato, because Makoto Yuki just sounds silly to me.) HAS to be a player if you want to get all the Social links completed.
     
    For the record: While Yu being forever alone is probably the Canon ending, I like to Pair him with Yukiko. ^_^

    If what Geoffrey said is true about Sega or Archie throwing the first punch, then it's possible. ...Still, I don't believe either company are so petty/desperate as to take Penders to court for such a small 'cameo' shot. ...Now if he did this throughout his comic, that would be another story. But this one small shot, stolen as it is, I don't think is worth any court's time.

    ...So Geoffrey is in Ken's stories. ...I really should have saw that coming.
     
    Well, at least the art design for him was merciful. Nothing was really added to it besides what I can only assume is a black jumpsuit with a purple vest, gloves, and boots.
     
    Considering he has a little bit of dialogue in that image, I can't say for sure if his personality is in tact, but it at least looks a little like it is. In which case: Thank you God, there's at least ONE positive reassurance in these chronicles.
