  1. GRID 2 is free on Steam until tomorrow; the store page says until 12:00PM but I'm not 100% what timezone that's referring too. https://store.steampowered.com/app/44350/GRID_2/
  2. Ah, the age old "Respect their vision" argument. Well, again, the argument that's been used to respond to that: If I made Sonic a drunk, racist alcoholic that swears at children, would people REALLY be wrong to be strongly against that? And that "just be fans" argument is a croc, too. If you aren't going to respect the source material, of course fans of the source material are going to be angry. Why don't we just ask Sonic Team how well change for the sake of change works?
  3. I continue to be baffled by Sega's decision to include Denuvo in TSR.

      It’s like the wisps of real life for SEGA: Put it in once and then keep on shoving it in their fanbase’s faces until people get sick of it. Except people were sick of it from the get go.

      Or they’re pulling a Trump and just bombarding us with it until we stop caring from sheer fatigue.

  4. Well, Sonic fans is how we're tackling this issue, no? Personally, I'm not willing to take mediocrity for the chance of something good when it should've been done right the first time, so in that regard, it looks like we're on the same page.
  5. I'm aware that the best chance for a future animated Sonic movie is for this to do well financially. The question is, is funding a product most of us assume is going to be bad really worth that risk? Much as I love Sonic, maybe Hollywood isn't the place for a Sonic movie to be made.
  6. I believe that's what they're banking on. The best we can hope for years down the line is that somebody we'll make a "Sorry the last few sucked" kind of movie, in Dragon Ball's case, it was everything after Evolution, for Transformers it was Bumblebee, etc etc etc.
  7. May end up taking an extended vacation. I am...not holding up so swell emotionally.

      Take all the time you need.

  8. One day we'll have a Sonic game where the entire fuckin' thing isn't leaked out before launch.

    But likely not any time soon if the last few years are anything to go by.

  9. That might be a holdover from when this movie was still with Sony, actually. I do remember when the movie was "confirmed" it came out that Sony was hoping to make it a trilogy, which, I wouldn't doubt that Paramount wanted even more than that.
  10. You should really play Persona 5 if you haven't already. It's so good you'll...

    *sunglasses*

    Never see it coming.

     

    ...what do you mean it's a bad joke

      I've played and loved PS5... but its hard to recommend it knowing PS5R is on the horizon.

      Might as well wait for the definitive edition, right?

      royal might have a ton of extra stuff, but it's gonna change enough that it's definitely worth playing normal P5 now, especially since royal doesn't come out for another year. 

  11. That '06 realtime fandub makes me lose my shit every time

      Hey gamers. Were you talking about Fortnite? No, I'm not even gonna pretend you were talking about Fortnite. I just really love bringing up my favourite game whenever I can. I, too, have insomnia, but unlike you, mine is not caused by depression. Mine is because I play so much Fortnite. I stay up late and go to Tilted Towers. (I don't actually play Fortnite, I don't know any other places...)

  12. Don't you know? A colorful cast of fun characters in an animated world just isn't marketable. Everyone knows those never make any money ever.
  13. RIP, Tim Conway. Thanks for being such an amazing Barnacle Boy for so many years.

  14. Hahahaha, boy, Sonic talking about how cool the developers are over the credits for Chronicles is pretty depressing in hindsight.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Lol whoops. Especially with that massive sequel hook they set up.

      I genuinely really enjoyed Chronicles, and had no idea about any parallels to Archie Sonic at the time. The game's development was hit hard by the EA takeover of Bioware - for months it was unclear if the game might be cancelled, and it obvious just how rushed the development was when half of character profile pictures use low quality screenshots from Sonic X and the rest use original art. Many even have low quality dithering that you get from saving a gif in old versions of MS Paint. Then there's the music too, which was in large ripped straight from vgmusic.com. Gameplay was repetitive and sometimes broken in the battle system. It just kind of sucked. The game was way worse than it should have been.

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I would argue characters "discussing" the credits is a really dumb concept, even in good games.

  15. I just had someone argue that there's more to Sonic than the game and comics.

    And sure there is! It's just that most of it isn't very good.

  16. Hearing Bill Bye drop F-bombs is absolutely wild to me as someone who watched so often growing up

  17. I saw Detective Pikachu opening day myself, and most of the reactions to the Sonic trailer were groans and "Huh? What?" and other confused exclamations. Sure, people laughed at the child kidnapping joke, but they were the uncomfortable kinds of laughter.
  18. Remember when the Sonic movie producer or whatever the hell his role is shared an article that told us to be excited for the Sonic movie, and the reasons were basically just, "C'mon guys! It's Sonic! Sonic is cool! Jim Carrey to! Also, Sonic! A-AND IT'LL BE BETTER THAN DETECTIVE PIKACHU!!"

    1. Tarnish

      Tarnish

      Was this before or after we saw the Detective Pikachu trailer?

    2. DreamSaturn

      DreamSaturn

      Shortly after the Sonic trailer dropped.

    3. Tarnish

      Tarnish

      So the Detective Pikachu trailer was already long out by then. If he really did say it's gonna be better than Detective Pikachu, I really wanna know what drugs he's on because it must be some good stuff,

    4. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      Yeah he flat-out said the Sonic movie will probably be better then the Detective Pikachu movie and that everybody just needs to wait and see once the Sonic movie is released before passing judgment.

      what is it with constantly moving goalposts, gosh

    7. Tarnish

      Ah, the good old "Watch it before judging!" routine when the reception is less than steller, ignoring the fact the entire point of marketing is to sell us on the movie based on a few select crumbs of footage and info they deem the most successful of raising interest.

      And how exactly is seeing the entire movie going to fix a horrible design and bland setting, I wonder.

    8. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      If this fanbase can deduce that Sonic 4 used the Rush engine from mere seconds worth of gameplay footage I feel pretty confident that they can judge the outcome of a three minute trailer pretty accurately.

    9. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      To be fair, some trailers out there are just horribly misguiding because Marketing teams think that a movie will sell better if they emphasize some aspects that may not even be that prominent in the movie. I still remember people getting worried about Wreck it Ralph because marketing really played up the "doody" joke and people were cautious that there might be quite a bit of potty humor in the film - which then had only that one potty-humor line in it.

      ...that being said, the trailer, interviews and basically every detail we know of the sonic movie is raising dozens and dozens of red flags so I'm pretty sure that scenario isn't very likely at all :P

  19. There are some tell-tale signs that a movie will be bad. Usually when people attached to the project have to share an article telling people to be positive about their movie, that's not a good sign.
  20. If it can be better, shouldn't it be better? Shouldn't kids get as much quality content as we demand for ourselves? Isn't making something bad just to say "Well it's for kids so it's okay for it to be bad" incredibly lazy and disrespectful towards kids?
  21. Don't you know? We need an annoying human side kick to take up most of the plot. Don't you find a middle-aged cop with a tranquilizer so relatable?
  22. Fuck Chaos Angel Act 3.

      My thoughts exactly.

      Oh, wait, that's the platform seqment masqurading as a stage isn't it? Yeah it's terrible.

    3. 8ther

      8ther

      Is this a Mania stage?

    4. Shiguy

      Shiguy

      That one particular enemy near the middle half of stage that snipes you right off the platform and into abyss can fuck right off.

      Music pretty bumping tho, although it's bizarre how intense it is for being on a stationary platform for a majority of the level.

      It's from Sonic Advance 3

      We get it, you hate Sonic Advance 3. You're coming off as a broken record with all these "I hate sadv3" statuses.

      Just liveposting my experiences, friend.

  23. For the sake of my own mental health it's probably best I just not engage with certain...individuals on Twitter anymore. If you follow me on Twitter,  you likely have an idea who I mean.

  24. Slightly different. A trailer literally exists to show you, "This is why you should go see our movie". If your trailer sucks, people are far more likely to think your movie sucks.
  25. Happy birthday, my friend! I hope it's a good one!

      Thank you, buddy! Been going great!
