Recently I play again Elder Scrolls Online and in my opinion, it is currently the best MMORPG on the market which can be a long-awaited slayer of WoW Smiley

In addition, we often return to the iconic Fireboy and Watergirl with a younger sister. I miss multiplayer games that you can play with the other player on one device :c

For the curious:
- WoW
- F&W

For this month's "Maps Of The Month" featurette, I wish to draw your attention to George s's Popful Mail (J) (Super NES) maps.

Mail is a bounty hunter down on her luck, repeatedly unable to capture the technomancer, Nuts Cracker, who gets away yet again. But she soon learns of a new bounty, a magician-turned-criminal, Muttonhead, worth two million gold. Mail eventually teams up with Muttonhead's apprentice, Tatt, and a creature named Gaw, in her adventure which will turn out to be more grand than anything she has ever imagined (even if the stakes are totally expected from any Japanese fantasy adventure game)!

There have been many versions of Popful Mail, with different ports handled or published by NEC, Sega, SIMS and Working Designs, but the Super Famicom version was remade by Nihon Falcom, the creators of the original PC-88 version. While Falcom is known for their Japanese RPGs, Popful Mail is a 2D platformer with some RPG elements. But for any platformer, RPG-like or not, the areas here can be quite sprawling and twisty. Good luck trying to navigate the Gades Ruins or Castle without some help from George s!

So to recognize the effort put into mapping this Japanese gem, George s's Popful Mail (J) (Super NES) maps will be known as's Maps Of The Month for May 2019.

Sonic the hedgehog 06:
I buy this game 5 years ago, but I never played it because I don't have PS3 (this game only for PS3/XBOX). However, there is a good fan project - a mod for Sonic Generations, with was created based on original STH-2006 files. Modders were able to adapt the STH-2006 levels for Sonic Generation engine with minor changes of a levels, required for single player.
I liked the game in such adaptation and I don't know why it has a such low ratings. May be this mode was created with a better quality than the original game?

Sonic And The Black Knight (2009)
I remember how I worked with this ISO-image, I was doing the translated of this game and at the same time looked what is this game. I didn't like this game, because (on my opinion) it's a not a Sonic's storyline. The levels are uninteresting and there no grabs gameplay, when it want to play more and more. In my opinion, it's a unsuccessful project.

Sonic be a "werehog"
Sonic the Werehog, all right

I'm surprised you haven't mentioned Sonic Unleashed (2008) and Sonic And The Black Knight (2009).

I didn't play either of these, but I remember reading that people thought that having Sonic be a "werehog" (seems like an inaccurate term if you ask me, but whatever) in the first case and wielding a sword in a fantasy setting in the other, felt like Sonic Team was trying too hard to mix things up.

 What are your five best and worst Sonic games?
Please give me detail on each. Here are my 5:


5. Sonic the hedgehog: The first sonic game. The good old 2D games and alot of animation equals: Number 5

4. Sonic heroes: Sonics first debut with Sony. The game has a bunch of unique levels. Fun games and good story.

3. Sonic adventure 2: One word: Shadow!

2. Sonic and Knuckles: I can't really explain I just love this game.

1. Sonic CD: The best sonic Game ever? Right! Sonic R was before sonic 3 and it was awesome!With random 2D to 3D enviorments. Also featuring Metal sonic and amy. This game just rocked.

5 worst:

5. Sonic the hedgehog 06:
Let me remind you all. Sega said this was going to be sonics finest hour, His greatest game. Was this true? Ah... NO! This game just sucked. with a crappy camera angle, broken controls, bad voice acting, and sonic as retarded and slow as ever. Made this game not live up to his name.

4. Sonic 3D blast: All I can say is a bad 3D view and you can't tell whats going to happen because of it.

3. Sonic Shuffle: A horrible rip off, of mario party. With boring and extremely hard mini-games everything very choppy. and a bad story line this just sucked.

2. Sonic labyrinth: What is the problem with this game?: Speed and there isn't all you do is walk at 0.1 miles per hour collecting 3 keys in only 6 levels. And you know what is stupid at the end it says you went 102 or something like that, miles per hour. Stupid

1. Sonic R: The worst game in the history of all games! With level design that is enough to get a migraine. Choppy design and how easy it is to complete it (around 45 minutes) and the characters. This game can be absolute suck! the only good thing about this game: The tails doll curse.

Honorable mentions: Shadow the hedgehog, Tails sky patrol, sonic riders: zero gravity, sonic and the Secret rings.

What are your 5 best and worst?

I finished Magic Knight Rayearth and sent in the maps. There was a bug in the emulator that caused some backgrounds to not display right, usually water backgrounds. It wouldn't screw the whole map, just the bottom right corner. The good news is that i was able to fix most of these maps by making transparency layers and fixing the water separately. The bad news is the Crimson Underpass still looks pretty bad and there's nothing I can do about it. The ground itself is mangled in the corner and it's not something where I can just copy the good part and smooth it over.

I'll have to leave it for now. Hopefully i'll be able to do something about it eventually.

It's really simple: Currently the whole game library for one system from A to Z is on a single page. This is the easiest way for manual maintenance, but it is bad for the loading time.
The only feasible (as in: maintainable) option to change this is to introduce a server-side processing step with a programming language of choice that loads the plain data from a database and generates partial pages, for example for just one game at a time.

I found a bunch more errors (including different apostrophes and hyphens and ellipses), so I did a lot of cleanup this morning.  Hopefully I've taken care of all the "�"s now.
