The Unfunny Gamer Discord!

3 posts in this topic

Well, instead of just complaining, I decided to go ahead and do something relating to the suggestions I've had recently. Of course, as you can tell from the title, I went ahead and decided on Discord as the place I'd like to get this started. There's three main reasons. Firstly: mobile notifications. I think I can speak for (nearly) everyone when I say that having a chat with notifications increases one's ability to interact significantly. Secondly, it's a very ubiquitous piece of software at this point that many people might already have installed. Even if you don't have it, you should give it a shot. Not even for what I'm promoting here, there are a lot of public communities on discord relating to all sorts of interests. And Finally, the channel-based structure of Discord can provide an interesting blend between the structure of a forum, and the activity of a chatroom.

I'm also aware that there are some downsides related to discord. If you want to preserve your computer's performance, it might be problematic to keep a chat client running all the time. Discord is by no means the lightest chat client out there. It's also likely not going to be embedded on the site. Quincybot is not currently capable of operating in a discord chat (although if this proves to be a successful idea, I will happily port him to discord.) And lord knows what kind of challenge there's going to be getting everyone on board with switching chats. To any of these criticisms I will say that I'm still open to suggestions. This was what I thought might be best, but I can't really say I'm the authority on that.

This forum has become extremely inactive over time, but I think just about everybody would agree that it has nothing to do with the fact that we don't want to interact and be a part of the community and everything to do with the fact that a dedicated forum to such a small group is a little cumbersome for what you get out of it. It can almost seem to feel like an obligation to get stuff moving here sometimes. And leaving a tab open for as long as you're on the website isn't always good enough.

But I've spent enough time rambling. Here's the link to join:

Well, now I'm officially on Discord! I was already on Discord, but if we're hanging out together then I have a good reason to start using it. Thanks for taking the initiative Carvool. I agree that UFG is inactive because it's pretty isolated, but as long as we're all having a good time together, I don't much mind where we congregate.

Never thought I'd find a reason to join Discord until now. I'll be on there eventually.

    • awesome review . i like how you never discard UFG regacy forum  .
    • Let's just get right into it, shall we? Sonic Mania
      Platforms: PC-Steam, PlayStation 4 (reviewed), Xbox One, Switch
      Developer: Christian Whitehead/headCANNON/PagodaWest Games
      Publisher: SEGA
      Release date: August 15, 2017 (PS4/XB1/Switch), delaying the PC version is just another bullshit excuse from Sega and them pretending that Sonic was ever good (PC)
      Price upon release: $19.99
      Buy it: Oh no Sonic Mania is the latest in the Sonic series of games going back to 1991 that were released on Sega systems. They were considered revolutionary at the time, blending the platforming action of Mario with the speed of 3-D World Runner. As you can tell, it's an incredibly derivative game design and it's amazing anyone ever found it revolutionary in the first place. The first game in the series was called "Sonic the Hedgehog," an unimaginative title which just spells out the name of the character. Sonic 1 is a non issue, it's just a terrible game. Anyways, if Sonic was ever good, which he wasn't, and if you think he ever was you like to have sex with Big the Cat, the only good ones were the 2D ones like Sonic 1 or Sonic 2. I remember when I was a kid going through Green Hill Zone from Sonic 2, that was pretty fun. But it's pretty clear Sonic lost his way after they stopped making 2D games in 1998 with Sonic Adventure, and every single Sonic game since has been awful. I mean, just look at Sonic Adventure. How can this pass as a modern game? Janky animations, lousy voice acting, and a convoluted story. What year is this? And let's not forget the abominations that were Sonic 06 and Sonic Boom. Those three games cement just how far Sonic has fallen and how his 3D games have never, ever been good. I mentioned earlier that Sonic was never good in the first place, but he was neverer good in the 3D games. Like, seriously, I can't stress enough how there was never a good 3D Sonic game. It's like Sega took a nap from 1994 to 2017. Actually, they're still napping, because the beautiful game that is Sonic Mania wasn't even made by Sega. It's a glorified fangame that just so happens to be out on consoles. But I guess it's pretty good, if you like this kind of game. It looks nice, at least, but all it does for me is proves how Sonic was never good in the first place. There are enemies that pop up before you even have a chance to react and if you're not prepared, BOOM, there go all of your coins. I think it's stupid how Sonic loses his coins whenever he gets hurt. Why can't it be something like Mario where you keep all of your coins even when you die? It's easier to get extra lives that way. Mario is way better than Sonic. Mario was always way better than Sonic. Quick, try and say there's ever been a bad Mario game ever. Time's up, and as of writing this there are no comments below the post so the polls are closed. Kind of like Yooka-Laylee, the dated mechanics of Sonic Mania show through just how dreadful of a game series this always was. It's time to put down Sonic. He needs to die. That's why my score for Sonic Mania is 10/10. This score is reserved for some of the best of the best games out there and I'm proud to give it to such a terrible game series as Sonic which doesn't deserve this rating. I rescind my 10/10 rating and give it an 11/10 that it clearly deserves much more for being a terrible game. (Working on a real review, including pictures of the Collector's Edition for Steam. It should be up Soon™)
