    And we've been arguing for the past two years that it's a BAD rationale.  I'm not sure what you think this changes?

    Looks like the admins have finally decided  to take my suggestion to ban all Sonic-related content seriously.

    Been waiting four years for a game that will finally be the one that will turn VR into a legitimate killer gaming experience; the true next level in the medium that "waggle the Wiimote to simulate just pressing B on a Gamecube controller" never came close to unless you *really* liked Wii Sports Resort.
     
    This is the first game that may very well be so, and the first game Valve has made since... what? L4D2? I legitimately don't even know. Valve, the videogame developer, not Valve the apathetic media distributor. The first game that Valve will actually supposedly throw their full weight behind after shadow supporting VR since Oculus debuted. And the deafening response is "who cares VR sucks."
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    What a true shame, the damage that has been done to the concept by the dozens of cash in indie developers and Sony.

    Bloody hell, this is gonna be VR's Mario 64 and you guys are down on it being a "VR spinoff". For shame, fellas.
    Valve have been working on this thing for years. They've been singlehandedly writing the book on how to make a premiere VR game, along with engineering the top-tier VR hardware, and on the software side, this game is gonna show the fruits of their labors. This isn't gonna be merely a spinoff, this'll be an event on the level that Half Life 2 was.
    No, it's probably not gonna resolve the cliffhanger. But if Valve News Network (who have been spot-on about this project for years) and a certain former Valve employee posting over at ResetERA are correct, this is gonna be the game that makes everyone wish they had a VR headset. Valve are aiming to showcase what VR can do and make VR's killer app, they are willing to take a hit to do so.

    I don't really care too much about the Eggman dancing thing as a standalone concept.  Namely, because when he does, it's usually pretty self-aware about it and the cringe is part of the joke.  But in the context of numerous other by-the-books and cliche trailer fodder, it just comes across as even more cringey than it otherwise might have.

    Tara got a reaction from Ryannumber1gamer in Scoob! - CG Animated Theatrical Movie - 2020   
    I'm sort of meh on it.  It looks all right; not hugely offensive.  But I don't really care for the voice cast.  This is particularly jarring since Scooby's voice is more or less as it's always been, but is a lot more vocal.  When he delivers like... extremely coherent sentences with that kind of delivery, it only highlights how out of place it seems.
    It looks like it could have some cute moments, though.  Particularly, I'm always a sucker for origin stories surrounding Shaggy and Scooby meeting for the first time.  And I loved A Pup Named Scooby Doo and all its stupid, late 80's nonsense, so if we have segments that are in a similar vein, I'm all for it.

    It's... okay, I guess?
    I actually think there are some clever set pieces in the movie; namely the Green Hill Zone in the beginning.  And the design looks better but I'm still not convinced on it.  One thing I was concerned about which was thankfully worked on was the expressiveness of Sonic's face.  Even while better than the old model, the promotional material for the new design always gave Sonic this sort of dead smile that made him look like a bootleg plush doll and I was sort of worried that the actual film would look like that.  But the expressions are very vibrant and alive.
    The problem, again, comes down to the plot and the writing which... just looks kind of drab, and the rest of the plot just seems like a Wikipedia list of recycled tropes I've seen in other films.
    So basically it's gone from unwatchable garbage that is actually visually assaulting to... more than a little generic, I guess.  I probably won't be lining up at the theater for it, but maybe if someone dared me and paid me five dollars I'd watch the movie when it comes to DVD or something.  Probably not buying it or anything, because I don't want that design on my shelf.

    The problem here is that people are just bumping the topic in order to express for the umpteen thousandth time how much they need a trailer.  It's not a problem that they're excited, but when it gets to the level of repetitiveness that it's gotten in the past few weeks, it quickly becomes spammy.

    Lol, I knew someone would bring this up when I saw the others had posted.  None of us were "dunking" on him.  We expressed our disagreement, just as anyone else is welcome to.  While I do get that seeing four mods post in a row does give off a certain impression, I also think it's a bit silly that we should have to consider whether or not a mod has previously posted before we're allowed to use this thread to say what we were already planning on saying.
