      It's like they put a review embargo up because they knew. But they wouldn't do such a horrible, dishonest thing such as that would they?

      It's apparently not a bad film.

      Just not very good.


      Seen two people describe it as a 2000's era super hero movie which has all the problems of a 2000s era hero movie.

    5. KHCast


      “...not a very good film” is pretty misleading then since that makes it come off like it’s a bad movie.

      Venom: The same mediocre substance that plagued audiences since back in Spider-Man 3.


      And poisoned by the same same executive problems too.

    7. Adamabba


      Not saying that it isnt actually bad after all but Ive heard that Lady Gaga fans are posting fake bad reviews for Venom to garner more attention for her movie that's opening on the same day

      "Venom's had it rough the past couple of years-"

      How does "not a very good film" mean it's a bad film instead of exactly what it says? What's misleading about that?

    10. KHCast


      “This cake it’s...not a very good cake”

      ”this sonic game is apparently...not a very good game”

      cause my first instinct when phrased like that is definitely optimistic.

      side note, why didn’t you just quote me?

      All that Hog's trying to say is that it's not the worst, but it could be a lot better.


      "Not good. Not bad, but not good."

  2. I am currently making a documentary about Sonic, I have managed to find a way to include this footage into it...

    I am happy.


  3. Ladies and Gentlemen... We have a new meme...

    Jackson Sonic. (See the replies)


  4. (tweet)

    Why Sonic 1 has no voice acting...


  5. Actually... the idea of a PG13 Deadpool isn't a bad one.

    1. Lord-Dreamerz


      Sounds like a pretty bad idea to me. Deadpool being a super hero line for adults is one of it's main points I'd say. Without the crazy violence, adult humor and questionable dark story telling I can't imagine there being enough of a point in doing Deadpool at all. Not all hero franchises are suited for PG-13.

      Think of it this way.

      Terminator movies gradually became more PG as time went on. A lot of people have criticised them for being too goofy and for kids.

      Same with Robocop 1's TV cut. And Die Hard's old 90s TV cut.

      Scenes got cut, even some lines dubbed. 

      Now studios started making more PG movies for their R rated franchises because that's where the money was.

      Whilst R movies are coming back, their box office is still lower than a PG.

      So make the movie for its target market. Being an R rated audience.

      But then later release a PG cut for the box office.

      Depending on the movie. People are going to know if the movie was originally aimed at an R or PG. So they're going to see whatever version accordingly, and even if we go down the road of canon and fan lore. The intended version is always going to be seen as the true version.

    3. Wraith


      I honestly don't think it'll end up hurting much. If there's an audience for it with the gore turned down I don't see the issue

    4. Teoskaven


      Deadpool 2 though prooved again a point by grossing 7 times its budget with Infinity War being close to its release. If anything, it says it's perfectly fine despite being an R rated movie, while if it was reduced to PG13 (and i mean with Disney's standards for PG13) it would lose part of its identity, having to compensate with the stuff that made Deadpool annoying in the comics on the long run, and make money only because of the Big Bang Theory/Rick and Morty crowd. Do we really want that?

    5. MightyRay


      My Dad had a lot of trouble sitting through the first Deadpool movie mainly cause of the gore. So a PG-13 (Which I'd imagine would just be a M out in Aussieland) rated Deadpool 2 with the craziness toned down would probably get him interested in giving it a go. 

    6. Polkadi~☆


      Oh, MightyRay, your dad will clearly not like Deadpool 2 then. Although the gore is rather comical in it's presentation, you have things like Deadpool being torn in half. And fixing his snapped neck. And sticking a gunshot hole in his hand through a gun.

      Not to mention a particular scene that subverts your expectations...

    7. Lord-Dreamerz


      Yeah one of Deadpool's main points is the crazy comical gore... without that it just isn't Deadpool. Also Deadpool movies have no problem making a lot of money as it is, so there is literally no point in it becoming a family film just to appeal to people who already have more then enough non-adult content to enjoy. Not everything needs to be for everybody nor does it need all the money it can possible make in order to be counted as a success.. It's perfectly fine and good for things to be made for more niche customers.

    8. MightyRay


      @Polkadi~♪ I know, hence why I saw it by myself. He had no interest in seeing 2 because of the original. He would have been happy to seen it if it wasn't as over the top as the first one.

  6. The Sonic Toasters are shipping

    1. Patticus


      Who are they shipping?

  7. My preview of Team Sonic Racing is live. Along with two gameplay videos.


  8. Well that blew up quick...


  9. Holy shit! Holy shit! SEGA'S TSR EGX demo has one hell  of a leak!



    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Stop trying to stroke your ego by flaunting your intel and just say who the leaked character is. Either that, or just stop harping on.

    2. Jack at Home

      Jack at Home

      If it's a "leak" and in the public demo, you are definitely allowed to say who it is...

      Fuck off BB.

      If it's Eggman we already know


    5. Blacklightning


      Grow the hell up, both of you. This attitude is completely uncalled for.

  10. Keep an eye on my Twitter. Will be playing Team Sonic Racing very soon. Will be posting my initial thoughts soon after.


    1. Jack at Home

      Jack at Home

      I definitely will. Thanks.

  11. AT GAMES have been dropped from the Mega Drive mini!

      Well for as long as this lasts:


    4. Ferno


      "don't at me" - sega

    5. Polkadi~☆


      about fucking time

  12. I'd like to introduce you all to my new cats.


    1. RedFox99


      I'm sorry for your loss man. But at least there are new



  13. Aaron has denied a new cartoon is in development.

    Lady has edited her Instagram...


    So it's 100% confirmed then.

    1. KHCast


      What has he said in reply to people posting her unedited post lol

  14. So ah.... There's just been a terrorist incident in my town...

    1. JonoD


      Quite a small one that ended up going nowhere thankfully. Either way, we like us some excitement and variety on Tuesday.

  15. I need the Detective Yakuza game!

  16. There are many jobs on TSS/SSMB.


    Ensuring user welfare.
    Moderating the boards.
    Replying to emails.
    Posting articles.
    Investigating issues.

    Making sandwiches.


    One of those is very important.


  17. So I managed to get Barman Arkham Knight very very cheap with all the DLC.


    It's quite a let down.

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well yes, I’d imagine playing a Bartender in Gotham would be disappointing.

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Your kidding right.

      Think about it.

      You get to work in a bar and all Gothams super villains come in and order drinks. You then talk to them about their daily problems.

      You can even give them advice on who Batman is!

    3. TheOcelot


      Everybody to the Barman


    4. Strickerx5


      Eh, still think it’s the second strongest in the series after City. Best combat mechanics for sure.

    5. Penny


      tbh knight's my favorite.

  18. What is this world...

    Who are the characters in this world?

  19. Final Fantasy Type 0 is a horror movie.

    Only 10min in and a Chocobo gets gunned down!

    1. JosepHenry


      Type 0 is not even good in the first place, but Jesus Christ the sudden change of tone is incredibly unsettling.

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      I'm quite shocked at how much I hate Type 0. Completed chapter 1 and may never return to it.

      It's just so boring.

  20. So the Eggmobile from the movie may have been spotted.

    1. Jack at Home

      Jack at Home

      Maybe but we're not sure. We know Carrey is filming but it's being kept under wraps.

  21. (Tweet) Stop everything.

    This is the greatest line from anything Sonic.


    1. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      This is from the Sonic Story books by penguin.

    2. TheOcelot
  22. Wait... are we sure TSR is coming out this year?


    Well... two companies confirmed they're making the in toys.


    Yet neither one have revealed even a prototype yet. Even distributors don't have TSR toys on their stock lists.

    1. Plasme


      Might just be poor organisation with the toy manufacturers'. 

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      It's absolutely 100% not that.

    3. Plasme


      I believe you!

      But if that were the case, why wouldn't they confirm the delay yet. It's Gamecom.

  23. I'm now growing increasingly concerned about Team Sonic Racing.

    1. Jack at Home

      Jack at Home

      I think it seems fun to play but it definitely needs more developing time, it needs to come out next year IMO. We'll see...

    2. Red


      I said I'd buy the game if Silver got announced for it but even with his reveal, I'm still a little hesitant about it. The game doesn't look good at all.

    3. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      I've been concerned from the very start regarding the game and it wasn't to do with the roster either...
