  1. I'm... I honestly don't know what to say! There's a bunch of questions in the Twitter thread, it seems that the cart was running off modified Genesis hardware.
  2. I know you're not, I just wanted to add a little more than "Star Trek Beyond is the one rare exception."
  3. The only film in recent times that I can think of which had a really bad first trailer but actually turned out to be a pretty good film, was Star Trek Beyond. But this is just... "We have to make it realistic or people won't take it seriously!" People are not going to take ManHog the Shiny Teeth seriously.
  4. You are not seriously claiming the reason this Trailer is so disliked is because someone told all those people to do it for the lulz? I have a simpler theory. The trailer sucks. I'm going to request a citation to this conspiracy theory.
  5. If anyone wants to post this in the game thread, go right ahead. I decided to look at how accurate the cartoon was to the game and... I was quite surprised. They obviously invent a few things to make for a fun story... But for the most part... everything that you see in the cartoon you can do in the game in someway or is accurate to the game in someway. It's quite impressive the amount of detail they've gone into without making something that isn't representative to the actual game.
  6. So I recorded my reaction to watching the trailer... I tried to illustrate a lot of my points with some examples and even compare some of the imagery to other movies... But here is the York notes version... Sonic looks awful. There's just nothing else to say, he's hideous. But the main crime that the trailer has is just how generic it looks. Like, even if you put aside the generic military briefing room and the generic government gets it wrong opening gambit... Our first reveal of Doctor Robotnik... He's wearing a black suit and has a silly moustache... They've modelled him off Dick Dastardly, only given him a black coat. He just looks like he's playing a comedy Agent Smith. There's nothing interesting about his reveal, but this is the first reveal of the villain for the movie! They even build up a dramatic reveal music key it's just a guy with a black coat on. There is nothing interesting about how he looks, or how he sounds. Now if he started like he looks at the end of the trailer... THAT'S INTERESTING! That's something I wanna know more about, that's something that stands out... This is just... we've seen it before. Then there's the issue of the Egg-O-Matic and badniks... they're so generic... They look like they're from other movies... In the video I compare them to machines in Terminator, but someone in the comments said they look like the machines in the Robocop Remake... and... Jesus they do! Literally the only thing in this movie which gives it it's own identity... is Mushroom Hill at the end, that's interesting, that's different and even then they get the look of it completely wrong. The whole 'We need to study the creature and it's fur'... Why isn't it a chaos emerald... Sonic's fur is not magical, it's not electrically charged... it's... Never been anything... Yet now it is... The entire trailer feels like it was a random plot they had for an original IP, then when Sonic was up for sale they bought the license and just slapped it on.

      Man, these Motobug redesigns are insane!

  8. So I've been watching the metrics for the video.... Around half an hour ago at around 47k likes/dislikes, the trailer was at 44% dislike. The trailer is now at 74k likes/dislikes... and the percentage of people who dislike it has actually gone up to 48% So yeah.... I just refreshed... it's now gone up to 49%.
  9. It's not a chaos emerald! It's Sonic's hair! Look! Edit: Ok images won't load, here's the tweet. Just click the Movie image and you'll see the hair. How do you mess up Mushroom Hill!?
  10. I know this is my own tweet but... This is the biggest issue for me. EVERYTHING in this trailer, could be taken out, put into it's own movie and be an original item. Everything is so generic it feels like it was reject scraps from another movie or franchise. Nothing about this movie says 'This is my identity'. There was one exception. The post credit sequence they used in the trailer, that was the most interesting part of the trailer when they showed mushroom Hill and they still messed up how it should look. It's so generic that I can't think of much else to say on it. I'm at a loss at why some people here think it has it's own identity because everything looked like it came from a catalogue of generic action movie.
  11. "I don't hate the look. But if you told me it was Eggman I'd have to say 'that's not Eggman'" That's basically all I can say, I've tried to articulate it numerous times but I honestly can't think of any other way to describe it.
  12. Also if you doubt this is real. The shape of the thing he's sat in looks A LOT like this object that was photographed on a set for the movie.

    So I made a Documentary/Retrospective on one of my favourite 90s era games.

    I think you'll enjoy it even if you've not played it before.

     

  14. There's plenty more on my channel lol. As for the 'it never came near my town'. I thought the same for mine... Then I discovered it actually did, it came within 45 min of my town. But Sega never published a full list of the bus stops, so you had to ring them up and ask where it was stopping... which... is really annoying.
  15. I recently did a lot of research and investigations into an old event that Sega used to hold between the years of 1992 and 1995. They were basically Sega Roadshows, the first was called "Sega on the Road" and the last one was called "In 2 Action." Each bus would tour major cities and large events in the UK allowing people the opportunity to play the latest Sega games and hardware. You've probably seen a few pictures of these in videogame magazines and issues of Sonic the Comic. Well... I was able to find some video and accounts of the events so I decided to try and gather together the best and most common accounts of the events into one video which covered the roadshows in order to catalogue and inform. You can watch that here. Anyway... I wanted to ask about this here due to a really interesting comment I got on this one and something that was bugging me even when I was making the video. So the first roadshow was in 1992, the bulk of the events happened during the Summer of that year in the UK. The bus was decorated as you see in the thumbnail, with Sonic 2 imagery all over it. And part of the attraction was the chance to play Sonic 2 in a competition style "How far can you get in 5 min" or "Can you beat the Sega high score?" And from what someone has told me, when they went onto it, someone was able to get all the way to Aquatic Ruin Zone during their run. Others have said that when they tried the game some people didn't make it out of the Emerald Hill Zone since the game wasn't released. So.... Does that mean that these events had Sonic 2 available to play in a near full condition... BEFORE it was officially released? Just that it seems the upper floor of these busses always had a Sonic competition, yet in some of the footage I found they're clearly playing Sonic 1, soooo... Anyone go on these in 1992 and remember an early Sonic 2? Anyway, the 1995 event seems to be the last one and they had a Sonic, Tails and Knuckles mascot attend a few of them, sadly there's a distinct lack of media for these. Did anyone attend these and does anyone have any additional photos or dare I say video?
  16. This is actually the first time in a very very long time where I haven't a clue what they're going to do. between the shift to the US for the 'Sonic Hub' all the re-structuring in Japan, the fact Forces didn't do as well as they wanted and Mania so blatantly shook up their plans. Like... When they saw Mania... and saw how it was received... I would loved to have been in the room of Sonic Team when they had their debriefing. The only thing at the moment I'd like to try and predict is if it's going to be a cross gen title given how the PS5 is likely coming in 2020 and several devs have hinted their next projects are cross gen.

  18. I found some images today from multiple sources of a bus in London back in 2017. So the only thing I can find on this is the company who produced the banner and they don't have any details on it... Anyone here know what this was in reference to?
