  1. If only snow actually set in this country, that would be wonderful. Winter is already cold enough, may as well make it a little prettier and brighter.
  2. Presents are pretty much a given, although if this were multiple choice I'd also pick family and decorations. Christmas in particular always has more of an obvious change in the atmosphere that always makes me feel a little nostalgic.
  3. Now that Marvel's leaning into TV shows as part of the MCU, we've been treated to a handful of shows this year on Disney+. Which one of these shows was your favorite this year? For me, I have to say WandaVision. Funny enough, I think the best part about the show for me was actually the fact that it was something different. I liked the use of sitcom formulas over the decades per episode and the overarching mystery going on. Bonus question would be what was your least favourite? Mine was Falcon and the Winter Solider; I liked it to begin with but it lost me after the fourth episode so I ended dropping the last one. I'm aware of how it ends, and overall the show was just a mess beginning to end. Both Sam and Bucky could've had a better story, methinks. Considering I'm making this before Hawkeye comes out, I included it just in case anybody's more hyped for that than the other options for if you wanna change later when it does start airing lol
  4. They're still making SB content my dream for a Nicktoons Unite remaster ain't dead yet! I'll say that I'm...excited, I suppose, for a new game? Like, I'm definitely hyped and I'm sure they'll go with the platforming route a la early console SB games, but 7 Wishworlds? Hmm, depending on how they're doing these worlds this sounds quite short a game from the offset. Looks like there'll be at least a hub world feature if bringing back "iconic buildings" is of any indication, so that'll be cool. Can't go wrong with a good hub world. Should be a fun endeavor. Would probably buy in a sale though, honestly.
  5. Right?? Like LBP basically made the console for me and I loved all the games (Karting was pretty good even if derivative and I liked creating race tracks for myself haha)! The series basically was my early-mid teens and the LBP2 DLC just made it so much better.
  6. Do not underestimate the power of Playstation. Which of Sony's consoles is your favorite? I also incuded the portable ones since there's only two notable ones and I'm pretty sure they're never gonna make another one so may as well. I'm a cross between the PS3 and the PS4, probably more into the PS3 because it introduced me to LittleBigPlanet and LBP2 was like the best experience I ever had on the console. (Also any PS3 owners remember Playstation Home? I miss that shit so much it was so good. I had the LBP pod penthouse and I loved that thing.)

  8. Hey, all you people! Hey, all you people! Hey all you people, won’t you listen to meeeeeee… We’ve just got an update, no ordinary update - an update filled with jellyfish jellyyyyyy! It’s that time again, Mr. Krabs. Time for a brand new SBC version as our Easter present, and this time, we’re in the season of the jellyfish! We’ve upgraded to the newest version of Invision Power Suite, 4.5, which is a lot more bolder and brasher. To get expectations in check off the bat, don’t go into this new version expecting a parade of new features, as that kind of backfired on us last time. One key theme of this version was “spring cleaning”, where we polished up on a lot of subtle details and cleaned out some unnecessary filler here, making the site more streamlined. Now, here’s what’s goodies we have for you... New Skins V14 Jellyfish Time to get out Ol’ Reliable for the V14 default skin, V14 Jellyfish! Bikini Bottom’s finest find themselves turned into jellyfish in this new skin, featuring a new SBC logo and new forum headers courtesy of Cha! What’s more, with the banner we have brought back the slick, rounded corners of yesteryear! V14 Jellyfish Dark Enjoy Jellyfish Fields at any time of the day! The dark version of V14 Jellyfish takes you into a nice quiet evening in Jellyfish Fields. But hold on, who’s in that jar over there…? Steppin’ On The Beach! Fancy a more summery look? Then try Steppin’ On The Beach, a new theme based on Goo Lagoon! With this skin, you’ll be livin’ like Larry in no time! New Features Return of turntable.fm - SBC Music 7: The legend returns. That’s right, the original music sharing site, turntable.fm is back from the dead, serving as our SBC Music room from here on out! This will be a nostalgia rush for 2012-2013 users, and new members will also finally get a chance to have fun here. The site is accessible for desktop and mobile. Our room is located here, and the password to access turntable is “speakeasy”. You will need to make an account there, which is a simple process. To celebrate the new version and for everyone to see the room, we’ll be hosting an SBC Music party tonight at 8pm EST after Pictionary! Come on down! .fmbot: A new bot related to music and last.fm data has been added to the Discord! Please read sbl's Google Doc for information and an all-in guide as to how it works and how to use it! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kjMa-2ZVtn_lmS54_HO7aAR8Yv9SP45Q-Jy1D7ERG-U/edit Emojis: 21 brand new emojis have been added to the forums. 5 of them are imports from our Discord, thanks to our Loyal Customers who voted for their favorite emojis. 10 are new SpongeBob stickers made by Cha, and the other 6 are new default emojis also made by Cha. Topic Summary: Any thread that reaches 10+ pages will now get a nifty statistics widget detailing cool facts about the topic, showing under the first post on every page! New Store Items: Each store section has new goodies in stock, so here’s a run-down of what each section added. Community Store: 2 new items: The first is Change Username Color (5,000 doubloons), which allows you an easier way to change your username color to any of our fancy groups. The second is Rock, Paper, Scissors, Spock (200 doubloons), a gambling item that takes the place of lottery. Note you can only use this item once every 12 hours. Skin Store: 3 skins are now purchasable: Episode Explosion Extravaganza!, Sea Legs (LC only) and Midnight Sponge (LC only). iFish: 23 brand new regular items have been added to celebrate the new version, 7 of them being Loyal Customer exclusives. The following items have been added for everyone: Ink Lemonade, Kelp Nougat Crunch, Bran Flakes, Hatty Patty, Scooter Pants, Baby Yoda Head, Baby Yoda Cloak, BLM Flag, Pansexual Flag, LGBTQA+ Flag, Bisexual Flag, Nonbinary Flag, Transgender Flag, Lesbian Flag, Wheelchair, and Hearing Aids. The following are Loyal Customer exclusives: Igor Wig and Glasses, Tyler the Creator Golf Hat, Classic John Lennon Wig, Classic George Harrison Wig, Classic Paul McCartney Wig, Taylor Swift Wig and The Weeknd Suit. Special thanks to Cha and sbl for creating these. Collectable Pins: Our collectables category has been revamped with a fresh new slate to choose from. For those who aren’t aware, you can use these “pins” on your iFish characters now instead of them solely being collectables that gather dust in your inventory. These default pins are all reused Moods images; we like to recycle! Updates Revamped Rules Page: Our rules have received a major overhaul accompanied by neat category images created by sbl. Forum Changes: The Kelp Forest section has now been renamed to Jellyfish Fields for V14 skins. Posts also now officially count in the Industrial Park and Ask Me for good starting today, as we did not see a point in this restriction anymore. Skin Changes: V11 Starfish, V11 Starfish Dark and Battle for Bikini Bottom Community are all now Loyal Customer exclusives. The Stephen Hillenburg Community has also received a brand new banner in the V14 format. We have also fixed an issue mobile users may have had where the backgrounds on several skins were squashed and stretched too much. Farewells Skins: The following skins have all been permanently retired: Orca 8.4, Attack on Bikini Bottom, Midnight in Bikini Bottom, Jellyfish Fields, Tropical Sandy, V11 Rose, and The Gay Brothers Community. Emojis: We’ve done a major cleanout to our list of emotes, getting rid of outdated and unused ones. Quizzes: Due to lack of interest, we’re discontinuing the Quizzes application. However, we are going to be replacing it with something even better in the future: Kahoot! That’s right, we’ll be hosting official Kahoot games for our trivias, streamed through Discord, coming soon! We hope you enjoy the update. If you have any problems, please let us know and we’ll resolve them in a timely manner.
  9. Well, if you're going to include it, I'm going to say June. Spring is nice but if June's an option it's a no brainer for meee. And yeah I'm looking forward to more dry, warm weather; I get to get out my yellow Converse again and not have to worry about them getting ruined! Also the vaccine, but I've already gotten one shot and will probably get the second one late-May/early-June time. So my summer's gonna be somewhat exciting provided my friends are also fully vaccinated by then too. Joy!
  10. I have too many things on my desktop but dammit it was fun organising them around the image.
  11. Oh, Golden Retreivers, darling! They're the most adorable things in the world...isn't their fur absolutely splendid? Of course, dalmations also work too; their spots are to die for!
  12. I would argue that resusing a good deal of audio assets and gameplay is sort of the point, since the remaster's main mission is to just make it look prettier than before judging by how much more refined and detailed everything in the game looks in general. Although I must say, that I'm still a wee bit sad that Mr. Krabs' line weren't re-recorded for this game, but I'm sure they had their reasons, probably your aforementoned timely release for SotR. The primary issue really lies not in how much it feels like an aged game in an industry that's moved on (for lack of a better way of putting it...I hope you get what I mean XD), but really in how I feel like it was just lackluster in promising us cut content being restored this time around. I don't think I'll ever not be pissed about Patrick's Dream not being restored. And putting it in Horde Mode isn't good enough for me...if you have the assets and the textures, and even a literal build of the level at the ready, I don't see why you can't implement it into the game; this could even be done through a patch at a later date if deadlines are an issue. And I don't think "preserving everything from the original game" is a good enough reason to keep the version of Patrick's dream that we get in both versions at the end...I'm pretty sure people would've loved to have that dream expanded. The assets were there for the original to have it, and yet was never used, and while there was an opportunity for Rehydrated to give us this...they did not. I mean, I don't know maybe that's just my personal feelings on that particular matter and I can respect if that wasn't a possibility even if I believe it could've been. It really just exemplifies how the "bonus/additional content" selling point wasn't really delivered as well as it could have been or maybe I expected a little more than I ought to have. Also they'll deadass put time and money into making a mobile port - why would you want that, I do not know for the life of me -and still not add the Dream? Okay, I see how it is... In thinking of ways the remake actually had additional content or major changes, because admittedly it's been a while since I played it and from what I remember it basically played the exact same as the original to a T, I came across this list which solely seems to point out aesthetic changes. Nothing about anything substantial added into the remake, just...the fact that its attempt at a glow-up has its pros and cons. Well, they do mention the multiplayer mode as the single worst change from the original, which I honestly agree with a lot. The multiplayer mode had potential, and was the only thing I recall being drastically different from the original game, and yet I find it quite an aggravating addition; time was spent on adding a multiplayer mode that could have been spent on adding new elements in the new game; add to the experience everyone already loves to give them more to go back to and more to do before actually adding anything that diverges from this experience. Quite frankly, I am a firm believer that the idea of a multiplayer could have been scrapped entirely and everything that was gonna sell it to players - the Robo-Squidward fight, additional characters (or maybe just Squidward) - could've been added into the main game. How many people are buying the remaster for an opportunity to play a separate multiplayer compared to those who actually want to play the game again? Not many, I'd wager. Mutliplayer was an odd decision, incorporating the few bits of actually substantial cut content from the original into something that isn't worth it. The game is still fun and enjoyable, definitely charming enough for me to replay whenever I wish (especially when my PS4 is readily accessible), and it's great that this game is available to kids today on consoles they'll have today. But all it is objectively is the same game, made up and repackaged in hopes of making a comeback on newer consoles. And that's all this game is at the end of the day; a polished version of the original. It shines; it's got a prettier face, gorgeous and pleasing to look at...but outside of that? Not much else.
