  1. Snore than meets the eye this weekend.

    Transformers 5 opened at #1 at the DOM box office this weekend....but only grossed $69M, making it the lowest opening of the series. (For comparison's sake of the past film's OW: TF1 - $70M, TF2 - $108M, TF3 - $97M, and TF4 - $95-100M). Not a good outlook for Paramount, who has been reeling from Ghost in the Shell and Baywatch vastly missing their targets and was likely banking on TF to be a strong summer performer.

    Likewise, audience disinterest has continued to drag Cars 3, which while at #2, only garnered $25M--a 55% drop from its first weekend.

    In contrast, Wonder Woman holds at #3 with $25M. The film continues to display fantastic legs, as the film only suffered a 33% drop for its third weekend. Film is on track to overtake both BvS and SS in gross domestically.

      Late response, but thanks for the congratulations guys, :)

  5. Depends on which 3D Mario you're talking about, though. Say what you will about the sandbox titles and Galaxy games, but 3D Land and 3D World are arguably nigh-on precise adaptations of 2D Mario gameplay in a 3D space. I do agree with your sentiment on how Sonic's issues with 3D gameplay are far less about Sonic Team having trouble adapting the 2D/Genesis gameplay to 3D (which, outside of Adventure 1, they've never really tried doing anyway) and more about Sonic Team's subpar focus and production values. I feel this is especially true due to how questionable design decisions that have been defended as necessary for 3D Sonic games was later shoehorned into the 2D games as time went on. I don't dispute that Mania being a retraux low-budget Genesis throwback likely is not the long sought-after answer on how the franchise can get a great 3D Sonic game. But I do believe that Mania's development staff have proven a better understanding of both Sonic's core game mechanics and designing a good game off of fundamentals alone compared to Sonic Team (especially in light of what I've seen with Forces so far). I give them the benefit of the doubt that if they were given the chance to pair up with a capable studio that has quality experience with 3D games, Mania's dev team would be able to make a 3D Sonic game that would outclass most --if not all-- of Sonic Team's efforts.
  6. The E3 aftermath of Mania making maniacs of the press continues... "...a joyful surprise that made us reluctant to leave the Sega stand." The Guardian; Sonic Mania, Super Mario Odyssey, and Sea of Thieves: the 11 Best Games of E3. "For once, it feels like the classic Sonic that many of us fell in love with decades ago is back and that's a great thing for fans and newcomers alike." Twinfinite; Twinfinite's Best E3 Games of 2017. "The original Sonic the Hedgehog games on Sega Genesis were some of the finest creations in video games. Sonic Mania feels like people who have been talking about what would make a new Sonic game in the style of the originals great for 20 years, got together and made that game." SaucyGamer, Top 20 Best E3 2017 Games Ranked. (Mania is listed at #18). "I still feel as excited by retro-throwback game Sonic Mania as I did when I wrote my eyes-bulging hands-on preview last week." Sam Machkovech for Ars Technia (UK), The 10 Best Games of E3 2017. Sam later named Mania as his personal Game of the Show. "Sega has two Sonic games coming down the pipe, but Mania is the one carrying hype for all of the right reasons." PCMag, My Favorite E3 Moments. Unless I'm missing something here, I'm pretty sure Sega approached Taxman to officially release his Sonic CD remake, not the other way around. His 2009 video of his Retro Engine running the game was a demonstration/proof of concept of the engine's capabilities, rather than a specific pitch to Sega to take on it as a sanctioned release.
  7. >collector's edition

    >physical vinyl release of the ost

    >no physical/retail release of the game

    ....ok then

    (like, great for those who wanted a C.E. or the vinyl/physical release of the OST, but I still find this really baffling)
