I finally bought Portal 2 for $2.15, so I might be playing that at some point soon.
Only took me almost a decade to get around to it!
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Sorry to leave this thread hanging Pat, looks like you've been posting away. I've been playing Sonic Generations at the request of a modern-Sonic-loving friend, and feeling thoroughly unsatisfied with it, so I went back to Sonic 1/2/3/CD/Knuckles and gave them another go. I remember years ago Pat you and I talked about Sonic 2 vs. Sonic 3, and you were saying you liked 3 more... can't remember why exactly but I have been enjoying it. 2 is still the pinnacle so far to me, and CD probably my least favorite of all of them.

I agree with you about Sonic CD. Never understood why people go crazy over it. It's still a good Sonic game though.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles is the best Sonic game. You had all the levels and challenges to collect the Chaos Emeralds, then the Hyper Emeralds, and then you have a super finale.

I don't despise Sonic CD or anything but the level design feels like one of those indie games that uses procgen very badly and the whole thing feels like a jumbled thoughtless mess. I dunno, I just don't think mazelike momentum puzzles are the "perfect Sonic level design" you hear folks talking about with CD.

I'll start Sonic 3 over with Knuckles locked-on and get back to you. Sounds a little overwhelming with 16 zones and all the emerald stuff going on, but maybe I just need to adjust.

It incorporates Sonic 3's save system so it isn't too bad.
