Sonic World DX impressions

Ah, Sonic World DX. After that mess that was the Sonic world drama, Sonic world R9 came out not too soon after things got sorted but that drama was a mess

But enough of that. I said my piece. Sonic World DX is a Anniversary Demo that was released to the world to play, test out, and find bugs and such.

The demo has 1 level, that being kingdom valley from Sonic 06  and this demo has 3 acts and I have to say, Kingdom valley, it’s fun to play. The stage is open to explore ar your own pace or find your own ways of playing the stage. I love this about the demo.

As much as I love the demo. The game seems to be running on the same engine as Sonic World R8 / R9. Engine being Blitz3D. I have heard they have mastered Blitz3D and I seen they made tools for Blitz3D to edit or crate levels but that comes with it’s own issues..


Bugs

The game crashes if the player get to goal ring with any shield in Act 1 or act 2, which is annoying to deal with. Below are gif links of me showing the crashes. Act 3 doesn’t crash. Guess there is a issue with loading acts that NEEDS to be fixed.

Sonic can run / jog on walls?

You can clip through the floor

Some springs and launchpads send you forward but unless you add forward input, you are going to fall to your death or miss where you were aiming for.

During the credits, the player can go to the Sonic World Blog by hitting the Rt on the controller. If you use a keyboard. it runs as normal but using a controller, it freaks out and mass open the same link when it gets a controller input.

The text can overlap the score in results but this is based on your screen size :V

While not a bug but a issue. I don’t know who made the timer for Sonic World but someone, fix it. It has been 5 years and this is still a thing?

centiseconds 00:01:50 It looks like who made the timer code has set something like if 5 is = or > then set the 5 to 0 then it just looks odd. The code is meant to go like 00:01:90 (If 9 in centiseconds_counter_1 is greater then 9. Set to 0 and add 1 to seconds_counter_2 00:02:00 )

00:01:00 00:01:10 00:01:20 00:01:30 00:01:40 00:01:50 00:01:00 00:01:10 00:01:20 00:01:30 00:01:40 00:01:50 00:02:00 This is wrong.

My final thoughts

Sonic World DX shows promise that it can be a great fan game in the future, and with a new change in lead. Sonic World Dev team seems to be on track. I hope this team can do well and maybe in the future, they can learn a new engine since Blitz3D is outdated but that’s up to them.

Sonic and the rings look nice. Sonic model looks clean same for the rings. Everything looks good. The new UI is nice and I like where this is going.

Super Sonic / Hyper is OP where you can skip some areas. And while Sonic feels better to control, he feels way too loose for tight platforming. Same for his other forms

Overall, I had fun playing Sonic World DX. It may be a demo but this is one demo to play as it does new things better and It’s fun.

Thanks for reading. :P

Twitter Witchhunts

Where to start with this topic? I want to give a warning here. While I will reference people. I will not name them. This is my opinion and I want to give my two cents on it.


P.s. If you feel offended, hurt or called out. I’m sorry but it is an opinion. If you take my opinion that is not fact to heart, Why would you do that?


Twitter Witch hunts. What are they? In today’s age. A witch hunt is a attempt where a person or a group or mob, get together to punish said person for their actions. A witch hunt can sometimes feel like a echo chamber.

Why have Twitter witchhunt have me annoyed when they happen more often then they should? It’s because people think they are doing “good” but they are doing more harm then good.

Why are witchhunts bad?

  1. You are gathering a group of people who have the same mindset as you that cause a echo chamber.
  2. You are sending said people  to attack or harass someone you dislike
  3. This will make you look like a asshole. And you could screw yourself out of a job or something great. I said “could”
  4. This could backfire on the one who started the witch hunt
  5. The internet will NEVER forget and this “may” bite you in the ass later.

Twitter witch hunts like these only bug me cause I see ton of witch hunts on this person and people just bandwagon on the witchhunt cause it aligns with their narrative and creates this echo chamber that makes it worst.

I won’t lie, I been “apart” of a witch hunt that was started cause someone made fun of their friend or their opinion, and the witch hunt had my friends there.

They blocked and flagged someone cause they were “mean.” Like if you don’t like someone, fine. but to flagged someone’s account because they was mean to a friend is a awful and stupid reason to do that.

I want to say another thing. During these witch hunts or bandwagons. They always say “If you follow X, please unfollow me” or “If you follow X, I will block you for doing so” This is why witch hunts suck.

They are fueled by emotions, not common sense. Like, here the thing. If you hate someone, that’s fine. But to tell your friends or followers that they will be blocked or need to unfollow you cause they follow someone that you don’t like.

I’m sorry but they just makes you come off as a petty asshole. Please do yourself a favor and look at yourself. you are toxic and the real monster. With this rant, you can no doubt tell I am very disappointed in a friend. She is muted but doesn’t care. I won’t block her because I am not a asshole.

Witchhunts can only serve to be a cursed tool that helps no one and harms everyone in the end. It should be used if the person in question is a real danger to others. I think the worst thing is that these witchhunts are done when the target doesn’t know who this person is.

But as far as it goes for witchhunts. If it fit the narrative that they are trying to push, they will keep pushing cause their narrative is “X is a awful person, and everyone should agree with me.”

Awful reasons to witchhunt someone (Don’t fucking do it)

  1. A feel had his opinion mocked at.
  2. Someone does something you don’t like or you don’t like them.
  3. Trying to fit a narrative of yours

Sometimes during a witchhunt, people from the echo chamber often spread misinformation or rumors in order to make them align with their side. It’s a shame. Sucks I have friends like that. Not gonna name them but won’t be supporting them for a while but they don’t care if I do or don’t.

But the last thing I think is the worst is that witchhunts seem to be a “flavor” of the week. People they don’t like for the “right” or wrong reason ends up being a target of these hunts, and it’s a shame. If it is not one person, it is someone else.

Stream Countdown clock

So, I’m making a post about my first program that I plan on releasing as a tool that you can use to time yourself. You can set a goal for yourself, and use it how you see fit.

You can set the countdown timer to any hour or min or seconds. You can see below

stream_countdown_clock_SgonQjDOcB

This is a old picture but it works the same. Use the countdown if you stream or working out or doing work. :3 It can also count up and do more. You can even pause the time or stop it. :3

If you find any bugs, let me know. ^^

Link to the countdown clock is here: Stream Countdown clock And yes, I made this. It is light weight. :P

Twitch.tv banned A4Andre for no reason

So, it seems the “wonderful” people over at Twitch.tv seem to somehow mess up again by banning a streamer who goes by the name of A4Andre. While I have watched him before, I can say he has done nothing to earn a ban.

And from what I been hearing is, this have been happening a lot on twitch.tv, and it’s worrying in the case that Twitch.tv bans anyone else. But it seems like if you can’t bring in the big bucks like Ninja, then you have no safe net to fall on.

A4Andre was someone who has streamed fighting games for everyone to watch. He was a kind and chill lad. And for twitch.tv to delete his channel, without notice, without warning is pretty fucked up. Not going to lie.

I hope Twitch is not trying to be the new “Tumblr” Purge where if you say the unknown word, that you don’t know what it is, your account might be banned and that’s not fair

The worst thing is you won’t get a reason, you just get banned and left in the dark to why you were banned. And all the work you placed into your streams is torn down.

As of now, there is a #freeA4Andre on twitter to help get his twitter back. This is injustice. Yes, twitch.tv can do whatever they want.. But if we follow the rules and still get banned. What was the point of following the rules if you get banned for no reason in the end?

Go give this man a follow and help him out https://twitter.com/A4Andre
