    The Sonic Movie has a major problem... but we as fans have the chance to fix it.

  3. (Vid) This probably would be worth it's own discussion but... 

    I think you could probably give a very strong argument that Movie Sonic could and should replace Modern Sonic.

      No...just no. And I already don't like "moder" Sonic's design that much either.

      The video has nothing to do with Sonics design.

      It's purely about all other aspects which make for a stronger brand. 

      And... Movie Sonic appears the stronger.

      At the risk of me just not fully understanding your opinion here, it sounds like you’re taking a lot of your main points from more of the recent movie marketing than anything. The thing about that is it’s really simple to edit a trailer in order to make it look good. To highlight  only the good things, rather than making the entire product out to be that positive. We’ve seen this done with the modern sonic games from the past decade as well. Promotional material can mean next to nothing when it comes to overall results from a story and world building perspective.

      So tbh, I wouldn’t even begin to consider the movie canon taking over the current game canon (even with how shit it is) until the actual movie comes out and either does or doesn’t expand on the details you listed in this video. I won’t deny that a lot of what has been laid out is interesting but if the movie falls flat on its face with it then yeah... probably not the best thing to move forward with.

      With the whole redesign, I think people are forgetting just how terrible that initial trailer was from every standpoint. Model withstanding, those scenes are still in the movie so, personally, I still can’t say I have too much stock in it turning out to be good.

      As for the movie bringing in the movie going audience for the game, I don’t think it’s the best idea to start changing the entire franchise to meet that group. If people can’t make the distinction between a game franchise that has been around for decades now to a single movie then excuse me if I don’t think that they should be the target audience here. They’re likely to completely drop the series without a second thought. Not to mention the notion that, if you just make the game good, you’ll probably end up catching the same crowd anyway.

      Again again, I’ll wait for the actual movie to say anything else. With how many twist and turns this franchise has seen, it might very well end up being better that the last decade of games. Hell, lord knows I don’t think very highly of those plots to begin with so it shouldn’t even be that hard. Though, I know first hand how easy it is for trailers and marketing to sale something only for the base product to be completely different so I’m not about to stick my claim in the ground this early on.

      modern sonic's a mess at this point but the movie sonic universe just seems dull as shit. throw both out and do better.

    I however am asking the important Sonic Movie questions!

     

  6. So... the Team Sonic Racing charity event made over £4000!

  7. The studio that did the visual effects for the Sonic movie has closed down.

    People claiming to be employees are reporting they had to work 17 hour shifts on 2 'infamous' projects.

      So company goes under because they wasted themselves fixing a big mistake the higher ups shouldn't have made in the first place. Way to go, hedgehog. 

       

      Well, at least we're one step closer to be rid of Disney remakes.

      This is disgusting for so many reasons. No matter what you think about the movies they were involved with, the fact is that these are people who just lost their jobs after doing nothing wrong. If anything, the things people take issue with (Sonic's initial design, the lions being too realistic) were all decisions made near the top of the production staff, not these guys.

      The idea that there are people out there who might've been forced to work on some idiot's "vision" of this franchise, followed by having to spend long hours redoing that work because everyone and their mother finally told him that shit wasn't going to cut it, and then get fired on top of it all (more than likely some executive can save a buck or two) is sickening. I really hope these guys land on their feet.

      Cause real talk, there are some incredibly talented people there. People like to point and laugh things like the Sonic movie but that's far from their more notable outings. The article alone names things like GotG, Life of Pi, The Jungle Book, and gd Detective Pikachu.

      What a mess.

  8. Don't forget! This Sonic game celebrates it's 15th anniversary today!

      Wasn't there a scene in Sonic X where Eggman flips the bird and it was cut/censored for the western releases?

      For a second i thought this was a new gameplay mechanic idea.

  14. So that new Sonic Monopoly.

    I accidentally improved the images and you can now see the entire board clearly.

      Seems like it this would've been the canon version of Sonic.EXE. I would've done a mechanic where Sonic can jump between Sonic World and Shadow World in the same level similar to an Ordinary Sonic Hack. I do feel ShTH did enough to fulfill stepping into the edgy and scary origins of Shadow making this a tad redundant, let alone be labeled with Sonic becoming too serious and Shadow focused in that period of time.

       

      And there's no need to worry about making Shadow's lore consistent when we have Blaze and Eggman Nega.

      You think this is a leaked description for a Dreamcast mini that they pasted in by mistake? I can't think of any other way that could happen...

    GTA V Now has an actual gambling Casino in the game which takes real world money but doesn't pay out!

      Hey, at least Rockstar is upfront that it's gambling, unlike EA and their "surprise mechanics". Still scummy as a hell though.

      Damn that sucks

  20. So for those who said earlier that TSR had been discounted this week which shows... something...

    Turns out this is a deliberate temporary price cut promotion for Sonic's 28th birthday.

      I'm aware.

      It's just that a game usually doesn't drop in price to 75% that quickly, even in a franchise sale. Most of the time, it's more like "Here's our latest entry, have a nice little 10% off to maybe make you bite", not "Our game's been out for only a month and the already budget game dropped down a quarter in price"

    Look at this new Sonic Book!

      I saw this on Amazon and thought it actually looked pretty nifty.

      ...and then you had to go and make me properly examine the pages.

      Blimey this is awful. It's unofficial and not claiming to be anything more, but I think SEGA should shut this down. It's shoddy.

      @Blue Blood

      It gets worse! I've added more tweets... The book is using stolen fan and official art.

      Every page is ripped off from various fan site articles and wikipedia pages.

      Not spotted anything from Retro yet but the sonic fandom wiki has definitely been plagiarised.

      The caption thing could just be because it’s a preview and they’ll be added later.
