  1. So yeah which moron at Sonic Team had the brilliant idea of replacing this with "Sand Hill" during development? Whoever he is he needs to be fired:

      Sand Hill sucks compared to this concept yes but if you're serious about the scenario you're suggesting here, there are like so many reasons in game development why this would happen and there is literally no way it would come down to one person.

      heh whoever was responsible for axing this idea is looking a lot more like Fired Hill right guys

  2. I've seen the 10 eps that have been released so far to form my own judgement. This show is pretty bad sorry. The comedy falls flat cause most of it is just bad puns. Seriously 90% of the jokes are puns. Fire Man's episode means hot/fire puns, Wave Man means water/bath puns, Ice Man means ice puns and so on and so on. The most appaling thing is how Mega Man and Mega Mini love to commend themselves on how "clever" their puns are. There's a moment in the Drill Man episode where Mini tells Aki "2 Drill puns in one sentence. Nice." with Aki replying "I try". Yes the writing is that desperate to make you think it's clever. Here's the basic formula the show follows: Aki has some kind of contrived and lame dilemma(Seriously one is Rush getting sad and running away from home just because Aki jokingly called him lazy. No I'm serious.) that ties into whatever personality flaw the robot master has. After fighting and constantly mocking the robot master, everything ends with a speech about how "violence is bad" or "we shouldn't judge on appearences" that always comes across as hamfisted and insincere cause the writing is poor and spends most of its time having Mega Man needlessly being a dick to the robot master, so forgive me if I can't suddenly feel heartwarmed. The characters are all typical archetypes that never really rise above that. Suna for example is just generic smart girl that is school president. If you were wondering if they had a good reason to replace Roll with her, well they didn't. Also so much for the whole "This is for little kids/a new audience, it's not for old fans", the 1st ep literally starts by reenacting the opening title screen of Mega Man 2 in pixel art, the composer constantly shoves the Mega Man 2 theme in alot of places(It's Aki's ringtone for example) sometimes for no real reason, like when Mini suddenly pulls an electric guitar from his ass and plays it. Also memes and other classic remixes exist. The animation/action coreography is nothing to write home about either. The pixel skits look cool, but wouldn't make sense to make it 8 bit pixel art rather than 16 bit considering this is more based on Classic Mega Man? There's 8 bit music, shouldn't the pixel art match that? It's kinda inconsistent. It all comes together to form a cynically made show that is unfunny, insincere and misunderstands its source material. It can get better I suppose, but so far, it's not just a bad Mega Man cartoon, it's a bad cartoon period. The fact that Mega Man games are no strangers to bad writing is no excuse, if the show is bad, it's just bad. If anything that's all the more reason why this show should have had more care put into it, to learn from the mistakes of the past.
  3. Sonic Team's method of adressing fan feedback:

     

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      "when all else fails..."

      "THROW IN CLASSIC" 

  4. Is it me or is Bert's voice by the same actor that plays Aki? The voices sound the same.
  5. That's no excuse. The fact that Mega Man had plenty garbage writing before is even more of a reason why this should not be tolerated. If we don't keep our standards high and just eat up whatever we're basically saying it's ok to not try to have good writing.
  6. My problem is not that it's taking liberties with the source material, it's that it's horribly written. To me any script that has this in it: Needs to be thrown into a fireplace to burn and restarted from scratch and the writer fired for being incompetent.
  7. "You are so going down!" "No, you are so going down!" "I'm not going down, I'm downing you downtown down!" "As if! When I'm done downing you, you'll be uptown from downtown...down!" "You know how ridiculous you look with your loser face?" "Not as loser as you look with your ridiculous face!" Someone actually wrote this......Someone got paid for writing this.......Producers looked at this and approved it for production.... If someone presented to me for approval a script with this dialogue in it I'd throw the script in that guy's face. Holy crap.
  8. The Layton anime is so wonderful :D

  9. This is by far the best analysis of the failures of Sonic Forces if you ask me. I agree 100% with it. I like especially his point at the end about how the gaming masses played a part in its shallowness for making Sonic Team afraid of doing anything aside from playing it safe.

     

    1. Blue Knight/Bluestreak

      Blue Knight/Bluestreak

      I think Sonic Team should take risks at the Sonic series. They haven't done it in a while before Forces, with exceptions like Lost World, Shadow, Boom and 2006.

      I mean look at Insomniac Games, their always taking risks and they pay off. Especially with the formula additions to the Ratchet & Clank series with every new installment.

      Forces was I guess trying to replicate Generations, but on an upgraded engine used in Generations. So they tried playing it safe by replicating Generations. Now I still ain't played the game to actually know. But I think the Sonic series can take it's boost formula to new heights, the same way Insomniac Games has with their constantly evolving Ratchet & Clank series. If Sonic Team can do it.

      They might already be doing it, if their the developers of the Sonic Movie game (Not confirmed yet) that will probably release with the film. Overall though, I like what I've seen of Forces, it's still not bad especially compared to 2006. The story and voice acting alone are 10x better than the previous Modern entry, lost World.

      The problem is that unlike Insomniac, Sonic Team never properly thinks things through when they take risks. As a result we can only get either ambitious disasters like 06 or barebones soulless crap like Forces. It's either lack of talent, or just plain stupidity. My money is on a combination of the 2.

    3. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      @pppp

      So is Forces an example of taking a risk or playing it safe?

       

      You know, I might've already answered that.

    4. pppp

      pppp

      @SupahBerry The latter. Sonic Forces is a perfect example of a checklist game. People want a serious story? Check. People want the boost? Check. People want Classic Sonic 2D gameplay? Check. The fans love creating OCs and character creators are popular in games nowadays? We'll put that in as well. People want vocal themes back? Check. People still look fondly on SA2? Make a DLC starring Shadow with SA2 remixes. People want less marioish level tropes? Check.

      Literally everyone of its elements was put in half-heartedly like a factory assembling a product and only because each of them has people that asked for it.

      Sonic Team will not dare to do anything else from now on cause they're convinced that if they make something unexpected it will only be met with hate.

      You know, when I first came across this video (particularly its length) I rolled my eyes a bit but decided to put it on anyways in the background as I did some work. I think I need to start paying more attention to this guy as I remember having a similar reaction when I first saw his Adventure vs. Boost vid. Needless to say, this was a good listen. I didn't agree with all of his points but I certainly understood where he came from with all of them. Hell, more often than not I did agree with him. Sort of put more of a voice to what I considered Forces as for a while now. A project that had so much going for it but, at the end of the day, just boiled down to a mediocre product due to poor implementation and general fear.

      I especially loved his hub world ideas like damn, that's the kind of stuff I loved Unleashed for only taken to a whole other level.

    Butch Hartman controversy

    This guy does a really good job showing the points in the video of him revealing the true nature of Oaxis where he says some of the most stupid and uncomfortable stuff.
  11. The Tangled series most recent episode kinda pays homage to Sword in the Stone. Meet Rapunzel as a bird:

    We even have a new Alan Menken song in it:

     

  12. Sonic Boom is struggling to get a 3rd season and yet this shit is now gonna get its 6th one:

    Also Dreamworks, you mispelled "month".

    1. Teoskaven

      Does the show even have an audience to justify so much money dumping?

    2. pppp

      I get the feeling it's a TTGO thing. As long as it allows for profitable merchandise they'll keep it going. It's bad animation,music and writing clearly doesn't cost much to make.

    3. Fusion-Ellipsis

      Fusion-Ellipsis

      Wait this is on it's 6th season?!

    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Well for one, completely different animation styles, studios, and methods. Sonic Boom was forced into a death slot on a network that constantly and consistently mistreated it, it got no home releases in the US, and then the only way to see episodes after their original runs was on a streaming service only usable in the US. 

      The UK got treated a bit better with Netflix getting the episodes and Season 1 on DVD, but nothing past Season 1 ever hit TV despite to my knowledge - decent ratings on Boomerang. 

      On the other hand, this show is a Netflix Exclusive and can be watched anytime the fans of the show wishes to watch it. On top of that, it's likely a bit more cost-effective as a Netflix Original as opposed to a full on network show, and most importantly - Netflix treats their originals with a bit of respect and unless they massively bomb (Like the show has a huge budget and barely anyone likes/watches it), they typically renew the contract and order a new season.

      @Dejimon11 Well, despite the kickstarter being highly questionable from the beginning it wasn't till the real intentions were found out right after it ended that shit hit the fan.

    5. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      And then we also realize how much of an egotist Butch is and how he can't take criticism.

      Not gonna lie, that line about trusting him with your childhood and future sounded pretentious.

      Seems like the internet overreacting as normal. I don't see a problem with his goals outside of that he should had been more upfront about it. Guy should just do what he wants.

      @Lord-Dreamerz So you see no problem with him omitting the true nature of his project during the kickstarter campaign?

    10. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      I already just said he should had been more upfront about all his goals. But no, I don't see what he did as a big deal either. Especially because the end results is nearly the same thing far as I see it. And frankly I'm tired of watching people online everywhere overreact about small things all the bloody time... this isn't a big problem.

      @pppp

    11. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      His goals aren't a problem for me. What bothers me is the demographic he's aiming towards and the things he's saying/claiming to draw them in for support, combined with his character. As he says more and more stuff, be it condescending arrogance towards fan critique, flexing "I created your childhood" and even basic fatherhood as if that's a status to put above other people first and foremost, or downright toxic views/comments towards people about suicide, everything puts these decisions in a worse and worse light to me

      What gets me is that he's chosen a base that will stand behind him no matter what he says or does now, because any controversy against it now can be simplified to 'persecution', and everything should be taken in good faith, simply because of the views he prescribes to, and not because of the actual situation

      What bothers me is that this demographic even allows this routine to exist inside itself, and what really bothers me is that it actually works, both looking at my family and the reactions on the internet so far. Because of course it's the main issue that needs to be focused on, and what the entire narrative will be now.

      It's just... ugh...

      @Space☆Yeow Yo-Kai Watch's writers do whatever the hell they want and this just one of many bizarre yet glorious segments they have. It's not a one off either, more episodes of this segment will come.
