    I just want you two to know that you actually grind faster and smoother if you repeatedly press the grind button, rather than hold it.

    Everything is mapped to B because you can read at the top right what the action will be, and switch it with Y. That way roll, dash, bounce, mystic whatever, magic hands, and any other actions aren't assigned to different buttons that you have to remember. If it were the case, miles would forget what button did what and call the game bad for doing it that way. Because no one can read fast enough when switching actions to know what they're switching to quickly, you have to memorize how that works in what order to not fuck up, and because miles ignores it and doesn't understand it, he calls it a bad game. User error isn't a reason to say a product is bad. This game has so many reasons why it's bad and harping on controls just makes it sound like your issue with the game is entirely your fault.

    Kyle is like that shitty friend we all had as a kid that would only play the good levels when you came over and made you play the shitty ones so they could beat the game. For shame, Kyle. For shame.

    I've gotta agree with Miles about the Lego games. All of the traditional lego games seem to be the exact same thing and all the levels seem very similar in what you do. But I think that is precisely the reason I enjoyed Lego City Undercover so much when it was released, just because it was so different from every other lego game that had been released prior.

    I drank all my Belvedere last week (Courtesy of Backwardz Compatible) and forgot to get some more. I had to drink Smirnoff Peach flavored vodka like some sorta common chump! But that's my problem, let's focus on you two boys.


    It felt like an eternity, but you did it. You finished the Hero Story. Am I proud? Meh, I guess. I'm more so proud of Miles for restraining himself and not setting his XBox on fire during one of his many temper tantrums. And I'm proud of Kyle for keeping his spirits high. But now we're moving onto the Dark Story. 


    Now you don't have to beat poor little Damian senseless to keep him evil. Dark Team's natural parenting abilities do it for you. And no, throwing a chao with a Dark character doesn't make it a Hero chao the same way as a Hero character throwing a baby chao makes it a Dark chao, it just pisses them off. And if you want Chang to stay good, you need to keep visiting the Garden with one of the Heroes and keep him balanced. Equal attention from both the Hero and Dark characters will make them a Neutral chao rather than a Hero or Dark one. (See my post from the first episode for more information.) Also, now that you have both teams available and your chaos are getting older, I recommend sending your chaos to school more often. You can send more than one at a time and can still have them compete in races while they're there. And before you think about purchasing a chao from the Black Market, you may want to earn a little bit more rings by replaying levels.


    Also, with both Chao Gardens you earn, they each come with their own pair of brand spanking new Chao Eggs. Nothing fancy, just standard light blue chaos. That means once Chang and Damian evolve, you'll be taking care of four additional baby chaos in the Hero and Dark Gardens. And they can hatch on their own, so don't leave them there in the hopes you can put off raising them. Each Garden can hold up to about eight chaos if I'm not mistaken, so you can move them all into one Garden. Their environment doesn't really affect them, just don't let them drown. Also, a chao's stamina won't increase if you don't FUCKING FEED THEM!!!! Seriously!!! How hard is it to just give a chao a mango or nut or whatever the hell those orange things are?! FEED YOUR GOD DAMN CHAOS!!! IT'S LITERALLY THE EASIEST REQUIREMENT FOR RAISNG THEM PROPERLY!!!! If the chao tosses the food, that means it's full, it's not being stubborn. Or it doesn't like it. But the chaos all generally like the free food. The Black Market food they will be picky about.


    And boys, I'm not your mother, but you both need to share the game. Don't hog it because it's a level you want to play. Had it over when your turn is over. And stop traumatizing your viewers with drawing of Sonic with veiny dicks for quills. It was fucking horrifying.


    Apparently Peach Vodka makes me very bossy, so let's get to my final point.


    Is the whole plot line of the game a little overly convoluted and kind of ridiculous? Well yes. No more ridiculous than a plumber having to save a princess from the same bad guy for nearly forty years. But isn't that what we love about these games? The impossible plots, the ridiculous layouts of the games, and more importantly: the hero. Be it a plumber or a hedgehog. It's why we keep coming back for more after all these years. In this case, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle holds some of my most precious childhood memories of gaming. I like to bust it out on occasion just because I still enjoy playing it. I guess what I'm saying with the utmost love and respect is... YOU CAN GO SUCK A DICK, MILES!!! Sonic Adventure 2 rules!!!


    Thank you and goodnight! ❤

      You can also change morality by just giving them a lot, and I mean a lot of pets from your respective Dark or Light character. The flame on its head could only be acquired from giving a chao a "Half Dragon (also called a loch-ness monster or sea dragon) and will go away if you feed it another animal that could possibly over-write the flame.

    I will fully admit that the Shadow the Hedgehog game was not by any means great.  The mechanics were pretty clunky and the whole concept was a touch far-fetched. It did, however, have great replay value due to the branching storylines and multiple endings.  As a kid, I had a pretty solid experience with it.  Certainly got my money's worth. I do wonder how my adult self would react to playing it again all these years later though.

      I totally recommend playing Shadow the Hedgehog (and Sonic Heroes) again as the game has faults for sure, but is still perfectly playable and that cheesy dialogue is just aces. We are talking some grade A gouda. Super fun as a kid and reeeaaaaally entertaining as an adult in my opinion.

    I would like to see them play something like Kingdom Hearts 1 or 2 (I personally like 2 better) as I feel there would be a lot of room for discussion due to the game's base in Disney films. I feel that at least Miles would have a lot to say about the movies as they play through their respective levels. HOWEVER, I feel that the Kingdom Hearts games (either one of them) would take way too much time to complete for this series. A man can dream...

    No, Miles, we don't all want you to stop hating on this game. Everything you've said about it has been accurate. This game might be entertaining as fuck to watch, but it doesn't mean it's objectively a good game. You're the perfect foil to Kyle's biased fanboying. xD
