  1. I think I can see why they ultimately recast Harley Quinn after Arkham Asylum, Arleen Sorkin sounds super tired and strained


    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Pretty sure she wasn’t recast, she just chose to retire following Asylum.

    2. SaturnWolf


      In 2011, yeah

      But that was when Arkham City released so the voice over was likely recorded in late 2010 or so

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Given DCUO is a MMO, I’d imagine it was in development for awhile and voice recording was done around the time as Asylum. I’m pretty sure she had stopped VA work for awhile prior to Asylum, and came back one last time for it.

  2. Gotta wonder what Evening Star is up to? I doubt it's anything related to Sonic, but they also haven't really given any major updates

    Their last Twitter post is from like, almost 2 years ago, too


  3. It's hardly Roger's fault that his scripts were garbage. There's only so much you can do with a performance when the writing sucks, and complaining about that when you're hired talent is a great way to get fired
  4. Probably not? Ditching having voices as a whole is like, such a nuclear solution to people not liking how characters sound that not even Sega would consider it
  5. This whole thing feels incredibly half-assed and bare, it feels like they slapped it together in a few months It's not especially glitchy or broken, but it feels like something I'd see out of a Unity class project in a way? It's got a fantastic sense of style, but the game graphically is kind of ugly, movement just feels wrong, exploring is boring at best and tedious at worst and the costume system is so basic it just doesn't feel fun. It's probably fine for young kids, but me going on 23 needs something a little more engaging All style, no substance is my veridct
  6. Ahh, this is just confirms further that he was either fired or didn't make reauditions, though it's likely the former since it wouldn't really make sense to have auditions this close to the anniversary if Roger's statements are speaking with recency, which they likely are given his recent outing in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Then again, this is Sega we're talking about, when was the last time their moves actually did make sense?
  7. I only work in black

    And sometimes very, very dark gray

  8. As expected it sounds like Mike isn't going anywhere

    1. Tarnish


      Damnit...was hoping he'd get replaced by Jim Carrey.

    2. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Why the hell would Jim Carrey ever be a replacement? The reason Ben Schwartz is on the table at all is because he has a history in VA work in both film and television.

    3. Tarnish


      Well, if they ever wanted some consistency with the movie...and since everybody was pissing themselves at how good he was as Eggman.

  9. I don't hate the guy, but honestly Roger's Sonic never clicked with me. I always thought he sounded way too old and he sounded out of breath half the time

  10. We're about to see a lot of kids become very confused and or angry about the voice cast change

    It happened when we switched to the 4Kids cast, it happened when we switched to Studiopolis, and well, history repeats itself

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      The kids already had to endure seeing four different Sonic designs running around, two of which sharing the same screen at two points

  11. I had been critical of his Sonic...basically from when I first heard him when they released that Sonic colors cutscene, but it's clear he had a ton of fun with the role and it kinda bums me out, that be it the scripts were garbage or the voice directors weren't paid enough to care, he never really got to, like, do anything but what we saw out of him in Colors? Hopefully he finds success beyond Sonic, I wouldn't mind seeing him come back as Batman at least If I had to swing a guess, I would say we're probably seeing Ben Shwartz take over. It wouldn't really make sense to go find someone else...but then again, this is Sega, and they're not exactly renowned for their business choices. Jason seems to have moved on from voice acting, they asked Ryan to leave his union, and everyone else doesn't have the range they once did
  12. The Balan Wonderland demo is very.....eh at best and kinda baffling at worst

    1. pppp


      Why what's wrong with it?

    2. SaturnWolf


      As far as the Switch version goes, low quality textures, heavy aliasing, and it lags a lot, like, a lot a lot, averaging around 15-20 fps

    3. pppp


      Oh so it's just the Switch version running poorly?

    4. SaturnWolf


      I haven't tried the other versions yet or looked much into them, but yeah, it runs poorly, and as far as gameplay goes, it feels like a kinda weirdly cobbled together tribute to NiGHTS and Sonic Adventure in a blend that doesn't entirely work

    5. neezTHEhuman


      kinda expecting this but still disappointed.

    6. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I've only watched the Switch footage so far. Looks dreadful on Switch, but even aside from that it doesn't actually look like a very good game.

    7. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Haven't played it myself yet, but from the videos I've seen, it looks really, really boring. I've gone from 'cautiously optimistic' to just plain 'cautious.' Really hope the game picks up.

    8. Kuzu


      ...This is starting to feel very appropriately like an average Sonic game cycle. 

  13. Hahaha, oh man, re-watching Johnny's '06 review and I love that SSMB theme near the end

  14. Much like Kingdom Hearts, I find Sonic lore much less headache inducing if you just nod your head and say "Yeah that totally makes sense!" even though I know damn well it doesn't

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      I don’t think Kingdom Hearts’ lore got particularly bad until it got to DDD, and even then I think the downfall was time travel.

      Everything before that, I don’t think it’s that hard to get, there’s a few minor retcons here and there, but nothing terrible that screws with the lore. I think DDD even had a few decent lore ideas like dreaming worlds, nobodies regaining their hearts and Xehanort splitting his heart into various vessels. It’s just...there’s no way to justify the time travel nonsense and it’s not remotely explained well whatsoever.

      and unfortunately, 3 and MoM suffers from it more and more, especially since Nomura is so salty over VS 13 that he’s determined to turn Kingdom Hearts into some crappy pseudo Versus 13. I love a lot of the original KH elements, and characters like Roxas are among my favourites ever, but the unreality, Verum Rex bullshit is more or less my tipping point. I wanted to slam my head into a desk as soon as I heard that the fictional realm is a fucking thing in MoM.

    2. DanJ86


      Sonic lore is a broken mess and I've come to terms with that. I've become so numb to it that I don't react anymore and if I do react, it's just a simple roll of the eyes.

      This is strange since with any other series like for example, Mortal Kombat, I'd get so angry at the constant retcons, character inconsistencies, ideas that go nowhere and a narrative choice that makes the villains seem more like jobbers than an actual threat. Bizarre coincidence that MKs lore became damaged beyond repair when time travel was incorporated too.

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Sonic (games at least) could be much more comprehensible if they'd just fix a few big things about it; nothing compare to the deliberately twisty turny KH lore. I will give KH one thing, at least it never thought to just throw out all those risks it took and reduce the story and writing to mere random potty humor like Sonic did. The quality in story may have still suffered, but at least I'd say it still has some "dignity" in playing it whole fanfic vibe with a straight face.

  15. Christ the Michael Keaton Batsuit looks uncomfortable, looks like he can't even turn his neck

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      I will bring all criminals to justice...

      just don't make me look behind me

    2. The Master

      The Master

      He couldn't. Thats why he dramatically turns every time he has to look elsewhere.

      The Dark Knight had Lucius and Bruce take a small jab at it when designing the new suit.

  16. So when a Sonictuber says they have "confirmed sources", it's safe to dismiss everything they say as grade A bullshit, right? Because the usual suspects are doing that

    1. Zaysho


      Are Sonictubers anything like the Smashtubers that are constantly begging for news and report on whatever rumors have the most traction on 4chan?

      Then yes.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry


      At least with Smash, it can to be fun to watch how far people go to try and bait people with overly elaborate "leaks" of the characters they'd want, regardless of how belivable the end result ends up being. They put needlessly too much talent in drawing or even modeling a render to take a blurry photo out of. And there is still some truth behind all this; many real fighters had been popular choices amongst leakers before they got picked.


      Sonic leaks all look the same, have no effort put into photo/video evidence, and are just plain embarassing.

  17. Well, looks like that redemption didn't last too long

    1. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      What did I miss???

    2. SaturnWolf


      Our wedding planning friend tried to make a comeback, and he did for a while, but it looks like he's banned again unless I'm misreading things

    3. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Hmm. Haven't seen any sign that he's banned. What was your hint?

    4. SaturnWolf


      Looking at my follower list, he's sort of faded out just like Levi before him

      Unless I am dumb and that does not mean he was banned, which is entirely possible, but I remember it being more solid like every other slot before

    5. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Faded out usually just means he's listed as an anonymous follower.

  18. SaturnWolf


    Oh it is? I hadn't checked on those prices for a few years, I didn't think it changed that much Well, I guess that's what Dolphin is for
  19. This isn't really a fair comparison? They're two entirely different games with two entirely different goals. I mean, sure, MAYBE you could argue the Emerald Hunting is kinda similar to Mario 64, but only tangentially, really SA2 is sort of like, a proto-3D Sonic Rush where it's more about how fast you can go, how many points you can rack up and how cool you can look doing it. Adventure 2 is a very flashy, style-centric game, whereas Mario 64 is about more slowly and methodically making your way through the world and solving puzzles to get stars
  20. I think one day I'd like to do a video on the XBLA demo for '06 to try and dispel the rumors about it being "better" than retail

    Retail did improve some things from it, believe it or not. Camera is significantly more sluggish in the demo, there's a really weird score overflow glitch and collision is like, a billion times worse

    1. pppp


      The light dash in the demo is much better though, it works exactly like SA2. There's also less slowdown.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's certainly not better, but it is interesting and has some differences that are better. For one, the air dash has an arc to it in the demo. That's very useful for platforming and resembles every other game before it, unlike the final where you drop straight down (unless you use the white gem).

      On the flipside, you can clip through any wall without fail just by spindashing next to it. The final game is obviously stupidly buggy, but it at least managed to fix that.

  21. Don't wanna get my hopes up too high for this news of a supposed new KotOR game

    I've been in this fandom for a long time and have seen a lot of reboot/remake/sequel rumors come and go, and nothing ever comes of them. Not to mention, I just don't think the magic of the original could be recreated today

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Aren't they already rolling out the whole High Republic thing as the new "Golden Age of the Republic and Jedi" thing? Sure, it does take place much later than Old Republic so it's possible they can coexist, but I feel it risk confusing the ʳᵉpublic with two different "Republic" franchises if a new game releases along side the former.

  22. SaturnWolf


    Got Door to Phantomile on PSN some years back, easily my favorite PS1 game ever, I adore the style and aesthetic Just a shame that physical copies for basically...everything that isn't the Wiimake are ridiculously expensive
  23. Hearing Sonic 3 AIR now works on Switch kinda makes me wanna splurge a little and get a modded Switch just to have the best versions of the Classic Sonic games available to me basically whenever I want

    1. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      Yeah it's basically the re-release of Sonic 3 that I've always wanted, but Switch hacking just looks like too much of a hassle to make it worth it.

  24. Honestly Arkham Origins isn't so bad. It's super derivative of City and doesn't really do anything "new" but Mr. Freeze in City not withstanding, Origins probably has the best boss fights of all the Arkham games

    1. Strickerx5


      It was more Arkham city which, even at the time, I was 100% down for.

      To me, it easily has the most kinetic story in the series. Also, the remote grapple is the best gadget ever and I'm still mad they didn't bring it into Knight.
