  1. You know, if SEGA announced a Colors HD remaster, I would consider that huge revolutionary news, since post-2012 SEGA never re-releases 3D Sonic games.

      Marcello

      They re-released Lost World...

  2. But is it really worth it if you have to compromise what makes the character unique and interesting to do it? Wouldn't keeping his appearances limited to when there's a good reason for them make those appearances all the more special? This is how good writing works, you don't overuse characters so you don't trivialize their presence, that's why in TV Shows there are characters that are absent for long periods and only return when the plot requires their presence, it makes fans go "OMG it's him/her". Knuckles is a lonely guardian type, he doesn't work like the others, he should only be involved when his island or emerald are at risk, which is why I didn't mind him being in Forces(One of the few things that game did right). I will never understand why fans want a character present at all cost, even if we have to compromise the character to get that.
  3. That's not it at all, maybe I just want Knuckles not to be in every game at the expense of his character. Why exactly do we need Knuckles in every game?
  4. My solution would be none of the above you mentioned and only have Knuckles in the game when it makes sense for him to be in it.
  5. 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.

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

      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?

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

  7. 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

      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

  8. 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:

     

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

      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.

  12. If you check out the 2015 trailer It looks like the original plan was indeed to use the Versus/FFXV(2013) battle system, which was very much KH2 but with party member swapping. For those that are not aware this game is being developed by Nomura's main team that made KH1,KH2,World Ends With You and worked on Versus XIII/FFXV(2013) for years. The KH style command menu in the bottom left corner suggests it was gonna be what Versus was going for, my guess is after this trailer caused backlash from fans who wanted turn based combat the developers decided to try to find a compromise between the 2, hence why we have this now.
  13. My grasp on sanity remains absolute...Isn't that right Agent Stone?

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

  14. The RT score is exactly as it should be, it's a good movie, not great, just good.
  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

      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. 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.

      No humans, just Sonic and a human

  17. Everglow defeats Yozora with as many restrictions/handicaps on himself as possible: " Also no damage, no equipment, no boosts, no items, no food, no Links, no Shotlocks... well, NOTHING. Just our basic, level 1 Sora fighting with his dearly beloved Kingdom Key and all the restrictions from the PRO Codes. All of his stats are visible at the end of the video at minute 13:37. Welp guys, I never thought I could be able to do such a thing when I fought Yozora the first time. But the more I played, the more I understood his behaviors and so I was like "Well, why not trying?". I really, really wanted to pull this off. You know, being able to defeat the actual Kingdom Hearts 3 secret boss with the maximum restrictions the game can offer? I kind of felt like "I had to do this". "
  18. Yozora can be easily beaten if you use Ariel and elixirs. Just spam that summon like there's no tomorrow:
  19. Yozora in KH Remind can be easily beaten if you use Ariel and elixirs. Just spam that summon like there's no tomorrow:

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

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

      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

    Thank you CyberConnect2 :D

      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.
