  1. Holy Crap is this great

     

    1. Blue Blood

      Not going to watch the whole thing, but 4 minutes in and it's just like an old episode of Looney Tunes. They really got the script and the audio down pat. I've not got much to say about the animation (as in I really don't notice that stuff well enough to consider it), but I don't much care for the simple, flat artstyle.

      I love how Daffy is actually daffy in these episodes. Haven't seen this side of him in a loooong time iirc

      Also like that the animation is oldschool but at the same it's kinda off. It's in a weird inbetween where the computer animation feel is still omnipresent despite all the tweens, squashes and stretches in animation because of the odd little blips in the short they forgot to add some amount of life to here and there. Wish it were completely hand dawn to get rid of that feel, but it's alright enough I guess.

      80 episodes is amazing tho, can't wait to see more

      The backgrounds are the only thing that really gets me...other than that, is fine.

  2. The New Sonic Cycle: SEGA promises future games will be great, they're prioritizing quality > New game comes out, it's either crap or mediocre > SEGA apologizes for betraying consumer trust, back to Step 1.

      Miragnarok

      And when and if they pull through, it will be too late.

      Sonic Mania gives me hope.

  3. SEGA, what the hell do you mean quality over quantity? You haven't given us either in the last 5 years(Mania aside of course). Also this is..what, the 5th time SEGA swears that they'll do better from now on?

    1. Miragnarok

      Miragnarok

      And when they actually do so, it will be too late.

      Its supposed to be ironic! Get it? Cause Sonic is actually slow! does the fast! Hahah! What jokers that Sega is!

      Wait, people still believe when huge video game corporations (or any corporation for that matter) promise them something?

  4. Holy Crap very clever subversion of a classic gag on the new Looney Tunes shorts:

      Supah Berry

      Warner Brahs, I don't know what to tell you. How the hell in the same timeframe do we get one of the best Looney Tunes adaptations and one of the worse Scooby Doo adaptations??? With this company it's either night or day in quality, innit?

    2. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      @Supah Berry big companies are big. lots of different groups of different people making different things that have no real relation

  5. "No Words Describe a Mother's Tears"...Well Disney, if you know that then why did you ask Phil Collins to write lyrics describing it ?

  6. Holy shit, the Xbox Series X's source code has been stolen and the hacker that did it is demanding 100 million bucks to not make it public.

      As if Microsoft doesn't have the manpower and clout to get him tracked down and take him to court for all he has.

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      better yet is that the code is useless to everyone but the creators of the code, because it's built specifically for the graphics card of the Series X and nothing else

    3. Ferno

      Ferno

      but they're still not hacking away people's student loan debt tho

      this just reminds me of that Spider-man comic where the villain could've been curing people but instead wanted to turn them into dinosaurs instead

  7. I didn't grow up with the English dub of Pokemon, only the Portuguese one, so obviously I can't relate to the nostalgia of Veronica Taylor's Ash voice, but honestly comparing voices today, I find Sarah Natochenny is a more convicing pre-teen boy:

     

  8. Onward would fit perfectly side by side with Pixar's golden age output(1995-2010), it's that bloody good if you ask me.

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I just came out from it and I loved it.

  9. Pixar's Onward is so wonderful, I haven't enjoyed a Pixar movie this much in years. I am now officially a big fan of Dan Scalon.

  10. Been replaying Sonic Generations on my Xbone recently thanks to the recent sale, I realized something. This is the only modern Sonic Team that actually plays to nostalgia WELL! The level design in particular really holds up to this day, but stuff like the reinvented Sonic vs Shadow fight having Live and Learn or All Hail Shadow depending on who powers up, The truck having seesaws, the fact that they bothered to put in Sonic 1 as a bonus just because they could, it shows that this is an actual affectionate tribute rather than a cynical cashgrab that only has looks and no soul like Sonic 4,Lost World and Forces.

    Please Miyamoto-san, come back 🙏

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      I fail to see SLW as nostalgias cash grab more just a cynical Mario rip off. The classic imagery isn't really that prevalent beyond using badniks (which Imo isn't even a bad thing) and the typical green hill like first level

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Soniman Plus the Casino Night clone, and the clone of the Green Hill  clone.

    3. Soniman

      Soniman

      The Casino asthetic is just a general Sonic thing. Not even exclusively classic lol 

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It wasn't just a casino aesthetic ala Casino Park, Bingo Highway, Casino Paradise or the myriad of others, it was literally Casino Night in all but name.

    5. pppp

      pppp

      @Soniman Yeah but Casinopolis and Casino Park had their own visual identity despite being casinos, the casino in Lost World just uses Casino Night Zone aesthetics with no originality whatsoever:

      Yeah kinda uninspired.

    6. Soniman

      Soniman

      I mean it was also combined with the ice level elements in the snowball levels for what it's worth 

    7. pppp

      pppp

      @Soniman I guess but the casino level itself has no snow elements.

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The pool table level that was set in the snowy area was original. But the separate act that was all casino themed had nothing to do with the snowy area of Frozen Factory at all (which itself was a bizarre yet creative mixture of Windy Hill/Green Hill and Oil Ocean with a winter theme). Same goes for the honeycomb and dessert levels within Desert Ruins.
       

      Also speaking of the dessert level, although I think it's the hottest of shits aesthetically, I really appreciate the fact that the game made a joke with the title card.

      Supah Berry

      Wouldn't bringing Miyamoto-san "back" just mean more Mario ripoffs then? UwU

    10. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Blue Blood The whole Honeycomb forest thing really confused me; kinda seemed like it would have been more fitting in the Green Hill knockoff/Zor's Jungle than anything.

      Might have also worked better if they had given it a more "Oasis in a Desert" motif, and that ties into Zomom's level by having him fight in a Oasis full of delicious veggies and fruit in the middle of a barren desert, maybe implying that he's such a glutton that he basically ate the entire desert area into a famine/wasteland, and the oasis is the last area that he's just now getting to devouring.

    11. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Lost World didn't attempt to paint a narrative with its levels. They were all as disconnected as possible from each other and even the cutscenes preceding them. It's not worth thinking about how they don't make sense.

    12. JezMM

      JezMM

      Desert Ruins' weird Act 2 and 3 would've been fine if that's how the whole game worked, but that's literally the only zone that has completely nonsensical disconnected levels lol.  Even Frozen Factory has Act 2 to lead into Act 3 (in my head I assume Act 3 just takes place entirely on one casino themed planetoid, it's still a snowy landscape on the outside etc).

    13. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Desert Ruins Act 2 and 3 are really the odd ones of the bunch. 

      But the songs are some of the best of the soundtrack.

  11. Well Disney's Tangled TV Series ended and it is bloody brilliant overall.

  12. Can someone find me a source for that info on Taxman's mobile ports having the level select removed via and update? I can't find any page mentioning it.

  13. My grasp on sanity remains absolute...Isn't that right Agent Stone?

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Its a STONE Robotnik! You didn't make it!

    2. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Jim carrey really made eggman come to life in this scene. It was almost scary.

  14. Sonic Ultimate Sale my ass. Only about half of Sonic's games available on Xbox Live and PSN are actually on sale. Though to give credit, at least PSN's sales are available for everyone, on Xbox the discounts are only for Xbox Gold subscribers. Screw you Microsoft.

  15. Well, we can definitely say Sonic's Hollywood debut was way better than Mario's so Sonic is still the Mario killer, just in movies xD

    1. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      Would you say the film was on the same level of something like Detective Pikachu?

    2. pppp

      pppp

      On the same level yes, but not quite as good, the humor in Detective Pikachu was better, even if I did enjoy a few jokes in this movie. Aside from that both movies are actually pretty similar in tone and story.

    3. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      Last questions. What did you think of Schwartz's Sonic voice and Carrey? Also, do the other human characters beside Robotnik/Eggman feel like Chris Thorndyke, in terms of overshadowing Sonic? And, is there easter eggs in there?

    4. pppp

      pppp

      There are plenty of easter eggs, Carrey is awesome if you like his 90s comedies like me, and the humans are good, they actually matter storywise, when you see the theme the movie is going for you'll see.

    5. Celestia

      Celestia

      Can't believe it took Sonic 27 years to kill Mario in cinemas and it wasn't even literally, in an epic crossover.

    6. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      I know this might be blasphemous to say, but I have a feeling the Mario movie is going to wipe the floor with just about all video game movies when it comes out. Illumination be darned; with Miyamoto involved, you KNOW he's going to make sure those guys stay true to the source material. Shiggy and Ninty are MUCH more anal about Mario adaptations than they were in the early 90s.

  16. Just got back from the theater.......Alright alright that was actually pretty entertaining and surprisingly heartfelt. There I said it. I still would have preferred a CG animated film by Marza but to be fair this is the most soulful Sonic-related thing(Sonic Mania aside) we've had in years. I hope it does well enough, I'm interested in the teased sequel at the end.

  17. That new japanese poster is the best promotional piece of material of the movie so far to me. No humans, just Sonic and Robotnik and it seems to actually convey some kind of genuine stakes through Sonic's face rather than focus only on comedy like the trailers do. Now if only It were a 3D animated film by Marza, then we would be in business.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      No humans, just Sonic and a human

      hey come on, you know the eggy boi is a freebie.

  18. Yozora in KH Remind can be easily beaten if you use Ariel and elixirs. Just spam that summon like there's no tomorrow:

      dbzfan7

      I don't even do much damage with Ariel for some reason.

  19. Ni no Kuni II's combat mechanics feel alot like what if Kingdom Hearts 2 just built off and expanded upon the KH1 ones instead of reinventing them.

  20. So does this mean we'll actually have something going on in 2020 SEGA(Again, not asking for a new game, just throw us a re-release of a game people are asking for)?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      They might've become more confident in the movie and are sitting behind it in hopes it could bring the franchise as a whole back to the forefront. At least for the first quarter, if they plan something gamewise.

      We mighy be about to see the results of the transformations that've been going down at SEGA.

  21. Remember the SEGA Heritage Collection back in 2012? Classic SEGA Games Remastered in HD! And for once it's not Genesis games, it's our Arcade/Saturn/Dreamcast games!.....And of course we only got 5 games in that whole collection, cause god forbid SEGA actually commit to releasing alot of their non Genesis games.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      SEGA has for a real knack for taking good ideas and either running them into the ground or doing absolutely nothing with them. Sometimes both.

    2. Cayenne

      Cayenne

      Sega Heritage Collection was ok, but I think Sega AGES 2500 on PS2 was Sega's best effort with collections.

      The rereleases weren't just the same Genesis titles that we are tired to see: You had Arcade games, Sega Saturn ports and full-blown remakes of classic Sega titles. Unfortunately, only a couple of these games were released in the west as "Sega Classics Collection".

      I hope that Sega AGES Switch doesn't die before we get more Arcade, Saturn and Dreamcast games. Some titles like Revenge of Death Adder and Shining Force III are in dire need of ports.

      Just give me Jet Set Radio Future.

      And a good Sonic Adventure remaster...

    4. TCB

      TCB

      Oh my God I thought like a handful of people even knew the Heritage Collection existed 

      @Cayenne You're not wrong about the SEGA Ages 2500 series being the best effort they put into doing something like that 

  22.  

     

    Thank you CyberConnect2 :D

  23. A strong man that has known power all his life may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength and knows compassion - Captain America First Avenger

    1. pppp

      pppp

      That's the main reason why Thor became unworthy to hold Mjolnir in his first movie whereas Steve has always been worthy, right from the beginning.

  24. Saw Netflix's Klaus. It's ok, but I don't see the brilliance people are talking about, it's the cliche "asshole character is using townspeople for his own gain but slowly grows to like them, but then after he turns over a new leaf people find out about his original intentions causing cliche conflict blabla". The movie doesn't even put any kind of its own spin on this story, it just does it in a straightforward checklist type of manner. There's also a subplot involving rival clans that is pretty dumb and doesn't go anywhere. It's a decent movie don't get me wrong, but I can think of movies that execute this storyline better.

    1. pppp

      pppp

      I'm guessing it's the fact that it's using hand drawn animation that gets people excited, and while I love traditional animation as well, I wish this movie had commited to going all out into it. Yes the characters are animated by hand, but the coloring and backgrounds were done by computer, or at least it looks like it. The animation is great on its own, but it doesn't really capture the hand drawn feel that well.

  25. Frozen II is quite a rollercoaster of a movie about how change is an inevitable part of life and how we must accept it without fear rather than run from it. Quite the visual and audio spectacle to boot. Pretty awesome.
