  1. Black Panther was utterly glorious.

  2. Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the master returns:
  3. Yuji Naka Joins Square-Enix

    I can ask you the same question, how do you know he left because he was against this choice? I can only conclude stuff from what I know, and let's not forget this wasn't the first time he did this, he left the studio he worked on after Sonic 1 and went to America because he didn't like dealing with the executives at SEGA. This guy just leaves something he's involved on when things don't go exactly the way he wants, I wouldn't be surprised if this move to Square was similar. Also no need to be insulting and call me delusional, by that logic I could say you're clinging to fantasies because you love Naka and you don't want people calling out the bad stuff he's done.
  4. Yuji Naka Joins Square-Enix

    We do thanks to articles and interviews: https://andrearitsu.com/2015/08/01/just-how-did-sonic-2006-happen/ Scroll to the bottom of the article to see the sources, here's the one that I find the most scandalous: http://info.sonicretro.org/Yojiro_Ogawa_interview_by_Kikizo_(February_20,_2007) Basically Ogawa was directing 06 for the PS360 consoles, then left the project with a portion of the development team to direct what became Secret Rings, leaving Nakamura with a reduced staff count despite still having the same deadline. The original idea was to port 06 to the Wii, but when he realized that wasn't feasible, he decided to just abandon the project all together and start a new game from scratch with the Wii porting team, instead of going back to finish what he started. Naka was still the producer while this was still going on and yet he just allowed this clear recipe for disaster to happen, doing nothing to stop it. Just because you're feeling tired of your job, that's no excuse for being incompetent at it. Miyamoto moved on from Zelda and Mario for stuff like Pikmin and Wii Music, but he did not neglect his producing duties.
  5. Finished Tangled Season 1. This is one of the best 1st seasons of a cartoon I've ever seen. No 1st season awkwardness here, The showrunners have had a clear vision and full understanding of how to execute it from the very beginning. Great storytelling, witty humor and classic Disney fairy tale charm all over.

  6. A new storyline in World Ends With You? YES PLEASE!

    Most underrated RPG of the last decade.

  7. From the team that brought you Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D World: Super Mario Odyssey

      Didn't they do 3D Land, or was that another lot?

      They did yes, I was referencing the Sonic Forces ads with that, since unlike with those, my status is actually true 100%.

  8. Happy birthday!

  9. Saw Ferdinand in the theater today. It was actually pretty good, the story does a really good job expanding upon the book's themes while adding more to it like a bit of commentary on animal cruelty. Yeah the comedy is hit and miss but honestly I thought it hits more than it misses. This the best Blue Sky movie I've seen. Sorry not a fan of Ice Age(Not even the first, which people say is the good one) or Rio(I also don't count Peanuts, The greatness of that movie came from the Schulz family being in creative control and Blue Sky being a studio on hire). See Blue Sky, just make them good and critics will like it.

      Didn’t critics like rio?

      The first one yes, but not the second one.

      How was John Cena?

      (Assuming you didn't watch a Portuguese-dubbed screening)

      He was pretty great, his voice really fits the character.

  10. Atlus also needs to port Persona 4 Golden to the PS4, their western fans would appreciate it. While you're at it, give us a Persona 3 PS4 remake as well.

      The first two can die in a pit though, amirite?

      :^)

       

      -besides, it's better for a collection and a good excuse to localize the missing P2 chapter-

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Persona 4 golden will only be available by buying Persona the eventual Persona 5 re-release

       @Teoskaven  Like I said, we still have the main SMT series, let Persona be its own IP. But yeah a collection would be nice.

    4. Teoskaven

      The first two games are still technically Persona titles, they need their share of love.
      -besides, you have Hitler as a boss in P2, that alone should be an argument killer-

      I don't disagree, I don't think they're particularly strong entries in the Atlus catalogue, but sure, more love for them is fine. It's kinda like GTA 1 and 2, they're fine but GTA found its identity at number 3.

  11. I'm convinced Sonic Team blew their music budget on the vocal tracks and the London Symphony Orchestra. That's why the instrumentation on the non Avatar stages is questionable. Imagine Modern Sonic's synths replaced with nothing but actual instruments, would sound much better.

      It doesn't cost money to use a variety of synths.  Ohtani using the same synths on Modern Sonic's tracks was clearly a deliberate choice to do the Sonic Adventure 2 style "each character has their own musical identity" thing again.  Ohtani could have easily used synths to emulate other instruments if hiring actual musicians to play them was an issue.

  12. Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom

    So to hold over fans till March 23rd, We're getting behind the scenes stuff: Everyone involved seems really proud of the game, which is good to see.
  13. Sonic Forces - OST Thread

    Do we know where Mariko Nanba and Fumie Kumatani are working right now? It's criminal that they never got a chance to be sound directors while they were at SEGA.
  14. The State of Sonic Team

    Maybe if SEGA bothered to not be fucking idiots and market the game better they could have gotten some good early sales. But then they refused to give review copies, which alerted people that something was up and now that reviews by critics and fans exposed the game for the soulless mess that it is, no one is buying it cause there are far better games out there that are much more worthy of people's money.
