  1. Holy fucking shit, The recent Tangled special is so freaking awesome! Dramatic, intense and it pulled no punches in telling a complex story in a show that's supposed to be for kids.

  2. One thing I didn't like in Justice League was how the League got their asses handed to them by Steppenwolf until Superman showed up. Wonder Woman should be able to hang her own, screw you movie.

      I mean Steppehnwolf was able to take care of the Amazonians so I guess they wanted to be consistent.

      Diana is far more powerful than the other Amazons, no need for consistency there.

      A fucking army of them tho? I mean at least let them get a hit on him. I mean hell the asguardans were able to attack Hela it didn't do much but at least they got a hit.

      She was able to contrast Ares, an actual god. Steppenwolf technically is New God, but still, it shouldn't be much more of a problem than Ares.

      And think about it: if Steppenwolf was able to do this, what do you think is gonna happen with Darkseid or Brainiac?

      I feel as though the threat was less of Steppehnwolf and more of what he's going to do with the three mother boxes. Like, he was actually always met with stiff resistance that probably could take him after a bit but once he got that box he was out. Even then, he's no slouch. Being able to take on the Amazons and barely even flinch is nothing to scoff at. Sure, give the others some more time and they probably could've kicked his ass but they never had that due to the boxes about to go off.

      Also, that's not even going into how Wonder Woman herself was constantly shown to handle herself well enough with him. Plus, during that whole flashback, there were actually a couple of Gods (and other powerful beings) there fighting Steppehnwolf so I'd say his power is a bit more substantial than Ares here.

      Basically, I think his power level was the one thing that they handled well with him. He was just enough of a threat for the others to join forces against for a swift defeat. Plus, it forebodes how powerful Darkseid will be to have someone like that under his command.

  4. So yeah Justice League was....ok. It's an unnofensively average superhero movie. It was meant to be a 2 parter originally and you can tell, the plot is very rushed. The introductions of Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg were too rushed to make any impact and the baggage of BvS still weighs it down. But it was still entertaining for what it was. My major problem is that the first Justice League movie should have been more than just ok.

      You'd think they'd want the film to have a consistent look throughout.

      For being a big team up movie and DC’s answer to Marvel’s Avengers, just ok is pretty bad. =/

      Yeahbfor a film built up the way it was for years, and meant to combat marvel, yeah that's pretty disappointing

      @SenEDDtor Missile it's like when game devs think copying cod would get the exact same money as cod lol

      It just means that Ash understands Pikachu as his friend.

      I honestly liked the idea.

      Is just showing he can understand his Pikachu and they have a strong bond. Didn't think it was that serious.

      Pikachu didn't want to go in its Pokeball from the start. Changing it to being because it cares so much about Ash is dumb.

    7. Super Mechanio

      It doesn't make sense.

      Pikachu hated Ash in the beginning, and refused to go into its Pokeball out of stubborn rebelliousness. Ash had to earn Pikachu's trust over time, but initially, that was not its reason for staying out of its Pokeball.

      This movie's pretty bad.

      It's almost as if letting Pokémon speak something without being cases like Meowth is a bad idea.

      Meowth's an interesting case because the reason he can speak isn't because he's particularly special; He just learned how by listening to human speech and mimicing it over and over until he was finally able to force his cat vocal chords to form human words.

      Theoretically, any Pokemon should be able to do this, but Pikachu in the movie certainly didn't.

  7. What really pisses me off when playing Forces are the controls. If the game controlled as well as Gens it would be a tolerable enough game to play.

  8. See guys, Shiro Maekawa, the writer of the Adventure games thinks Forces was well written xD

      He wasn't a writer for SA1, but yeah he was behind SA2  & Heroes (scenario writer), '06 (script), Zero Gravity (story plotter) and Black Knight (just in charge of the story in general, though he wasn't credited apparently).

      Wrt Forces I like the plot for the most part but the way some of the characters were written bugged me. I can see why he liked it, honestly.

      Well, they were trying to cater more to the adventure crowd anyway. What better person to draw in other than the writer for the adventures himself?

  10. Sonic Forces Reviews Thread

    Oh boy can't wait to see the SA3 facebook post about how "Forces is selling great in the UK and a better start than Gens cause it actually has appeal".Some americans fail to realize that the reason games like Knack and Forces sell better in the UK than Mario is because unlike the US, there was no total dominance of Nintendo in the 80s in Europe. The Master System was really popular here and the market share here was much more balanced, which of course led to the Mega Drive winning against the SNES since it released first. As a result, Mario/Nintendo don't have the huge installbase in Europe that the US does. The SEGA kids outweigh Nintendo kids. Don't get me wrong, Nintendo is popular in Europe, but we didn't have an entire console generation that was just Nintendo and no one else like the US did in the 80s. That's why Forces is selling better in the UK than Mario. For the record I'm not hating on Forces success, just providing context for why this is happening.

      @Strickerx5 because differences in culture are interesting especially in the context of the performance of a sonic game? u know, on a sonic forum?

      @A Match in Oil Ocean ZoneI was referring more specifically to the first part about the SA3 facebook group but ok. It is interesting in that sense but I guess I honestly still wouldn't call a Sonic game doing somewhat well compared to Mario in the UK specifically anything to get that worked up over.

  12. Sonic Forces Impressions Thread

    Except in those games(good ones at least) there's variety in dungeons, making the task much more bearable. Every stage in Forces feels like the same affair.
  13. Sonic Forces Impressions Thread

    Oh and another thing: Planning to 100% this game? Then prepare to repeat the same stages over and over to max out all Avatar classes for hours. Great replay value right guys?
  14. Sonic Forces Impressions Thread

    OK so I finished the game today. My thoughts are close to the general consensus: the plot is a big waste of potential that goes nowhere, the levels are shallow, the controls are crippled, god are the controls terrible and the OST is one of the weaker ones in years. As for what I liked: I have to admit Stage 24 did make me smile, while incredibly cheesy, it felt like it was the only stage that showed enthusiasm from the developers. I also still like some music tracks despite the overall package being weak. One thing I'm surprised no one brings up is how this game is a different beast if you're trying to 100% it. I can see why some people like Jim Sterling found it alright. If you're just trying to get through the story and don't care for S Ranks or challenges it's a tolerable enough experience. However, if you're like me and you were doing all missions and S Ranks as they became available, the control issues and other problems become much more apparent. Trying to quickly do precise platforming with these controls to beat the time trial challenges is a nightmare. Modern and the Avatar go from 0 to 1000 the moment you touch the control stick, good luck getting used to that, I never did. Also can someone explain to me what the hell the programmer of the timer of the game was thinking? Even when you're in a setpiece where you have no control and are just watching the timer keeps counting. This makes time trial challenges incredibly unfair. For example a certain cutscene for a certain boss lasts like 20 seconds before you have control again, that's 20 seconds the game stole from your attempt at completing in x minutes. It's a bad game plain and simple, it's not broken, but it's worst than that: It's a souless game where the developers just didn't give a shit.
  15. So in which topic do I post my final thoughts on Forces?

    1. Yeow

      Yeow

      Best bet would be the impressions topic. Maybe the review topic, though that's more reviews from major/professional videogame sites.
