  1. I was kinda hoping for a new WB theme for the new logo (or maybe a throwback to the classic Max Steiner theme from the 30s/40s films), but this orchestrated remix of the 1998 theme is pretty decent. (Ignore the VIVO Film thumbnail for the first video, the WB logo plays first.)

    The original '98 theme, for comparison:

      Reminds me of how the theme for the 2012 Universal logo (by Bryan Tyler) is a re-orchestration of the theme for the 1997 logo (by Jerry Goldsmith).

  2. the jakks pacific commercial TSS article once again reminds me how oddly fascinating that the sonic series' mainstream advertising nowadays only really exists for all of the multimedia stuff (since it's handled by other parties), and not the games themselves (b/c there's no real marketing dept. for SoA/SoE anymore).

    gonna be fascinating to see that eggman robot commercial show up during commercial breaks on nick, cartoon network, etc. over the next few weeks, but there's no television ads whatsoever for the upcoming remaster of (what's arguably) the series' best-selling game from the previous decade

      The last time I saw a Sonic ad on TV, I'm pretty sure it was for Sonic Colours back in 2011

      ...huh... And I remember Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games ads playing near constantly in 2007

  3. Today marks the 40th anniversary of MTV's very first broadcast, I wonder if they've got anything spec-

     

     

    Sadly, this isn't anything new. When the 30th anniversary rolled around back in 2011,

    only MTV Classic --the retro-themed spinoff-- actually did anything to commemorate the celebration, with tons of old segments and promotional spots from its inception spread out over the weekend.

      Sometimes I'm a pessimistic man. It's hard to stay positive when the weight of the world suddenly becomes apparent to you. We spend our whole lives wishing for a better future and a better life because the powers that be only want to see us suffer. We see others suffering worse than us, and it only makes us feel worse. We feel guilt on top of it all. There never seems to be an escape.

      Today I almost gave up. When I carried the earth's crusts on my shoulders, my arms became sore, and my mind became numb. The big question was, "Why?!" Why does such suffering exist? Why do we endure all of this to ultimately find nothing waiting for us at the end of the road? And so I morbidly thought to make my journey shorter. After all, it didn't really matter.

      But my question was answered. Not with a divine being's revelation, or a motivational speaker's tiring rant, but a piece of media. A movie.

      As I sat and watched the film, I began to realize something. Humans had reached a level of intellect, prosperity, comfort, and power in order to come together to create a movie based on another of our own inventions. This one film was the culmination of thousands of years of struggle and grind. Our ancestors wiped the sweat off their brow after a successful hunt, just as the director wipes the sweat off their brow after a long day's work. It took thousands of years to get here. Hell, it took billions. We can trace our ancestry to the start of the universe.

      First Physics was born. That gave rise to Chemistry. Chemistry birthed Biology. Biology created Technology. Technology created something big. Technology created something wonderful. Technology created the answer to the big 'Why?!'

      Technology created

  8. i'm curious as to whether we've gotten an animated "villain protagonist" show where its like if you had skeletor/cobra commander/shredder (1984) equivalent as the main protagonists, rather than the heroes they're fighting

    and for some reason i get the impression that the closest thing we have gotten to that is invader zim

    Translation in quote:

    Quote

    We would like to inform you that the handling of credit cards and transportation e-money in the Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS series and Wii U will be terminated at 9:00 a.m. on January 18, 2022 (Tuesday). After the termination, you will no longer be able to add balances using credit cards and transportation e-money from the Nintendo 3DS series and Wii U.

    (This is reportedly for just the Japan Wii U and 3DS eShops, but it's already been done for EU and AU/NZ territories as it is. So the US and any other other territories aren't far behind. This also doesn't mention eShop cards, so those should presumably still work/be unaffected by this termination date.)

    e: People are also saying that you should still be able to use cards if you add funds from your cards to your Nintendo Account, and then use that balance for the Wii U/3DS eShops (if your Nintendo Account is connected to those platforms). A bit confusing, but sure....

      Didn’t Sony get a lot of criticism earlier this year for trying to close the book on the PS3’s store?

      Anyways, this wouldn’t really be too big of an issue if both of them had proper backwards compatibility support on their current consoles.

  13. Black Widow out-slammed and out-jammed for #1 at the box office this week!

    A New Legacy made $31.65M this opening weekend at the domestic (U.S.) box office. Best pandemic-era opening for a family film and for Warner Bros. Pictures. This also surpassed the opening weekend DOM gross for the original Space Jam back in 1996, where it opened to $27.5M. Reminder this is all despite the film also being available for streaming on HBO Max.

    P.S.: King James has something to say in response to the naysayers:

  14. I haven't said anything about comparisons between Colors Ultimate and other Wii remasters on Switch at all, in any of my posts in the thread; so I really don't understand why you keep bringing those comparisons up in your replies to me. I also don't know how your takeaway from my last reply was that I was being critical of the final result that is the Switch port of Forces; the quality of the port wasn't the focus of my disagreement. I'm gonna be honest. I'm at a loss on continuing this discussion beyond this point; because it feels like you're either confusing my posts with other responses people have made in the thread, or are seeing something in my posts that actually aren't there at all. It's honestly a bit annoying because I don't think I've been vague in the points I've been trying to make.
  15. Welp, I just finished A New Legacy while ago.

    I can’t decide whether it’s about the same as the original or it’s worse.

    e: With that said, it definitely has its moments and made me laugh a handful of times.

      Oh no, i saw that, i just did not understand if it's like an official mascot going full on silence brand mode or not.

  17. Not to be rude, but it feels like you completely misread my post. I didn't bring up the PS3 version of Bayonetta to compare the quality of the port. I was comparing the reason of using it as a example to demonstrate problems with the hardware. You used the Switch version of Forces as an example of the Switch's lack of power. I replied that it wasn't the best example to use because it was a version of Forces that started development well after the other versions and near the game's intended release. It was such a hastily-done and troubled port that Sonic Team were explicit in stating they weren't sure if they would get it out in time for the game's release, and hands-on previews as late as September (two months before release) were criticizing it as having terrible performance issues. Where I brought up the Bayonetta comparison was that it would be like using the PS3 port (which as noted, had severe performance issues) as an example of the PS3's hardware being hard to program for. This is despite that version also being made late in the game's development, and on top of that wasn't even a port the developers ever intended to make from the beginning. As I clarified earlier in my response to Bobnik, there's additional factors in play that aren't related to the hardware that contributed to the reason the port turned out as it did, for both the Bayonetta port and the Forces port. You want to use a game to showcase the Switch's lack of power parity? There's other, better examples to use where you can cite the hardware as the only/main issue. I previously listed the Bloodstained release on Switch as one.
  18. My point there is that there are other examples you can use if you wanted to highlight the weakness, complexity, or other problems with the hardware itself. Go use something such as Skyrim for PS3 or Bloodstained on Switch if you want to make that argument. An (unplanned) port of a game that was started in late development isn’t the best example to use, given the stated additional factors at play that go beyond the hardware.
  19. The idea of using the Switch version of Forces as a knock against the Switch's hardware capabilities seriously escapes me, knowing what's been stated about it's development and stability nearing release. It's like using the PS3 version of Bayonetta (another rushed port) as proof of the PS3 hardware being harder to program for vs. the Xbox 360 hardware. Moreover, Forces was a port of a game made for what was then the current generation of hardware. Colors Ultimate is a port of game made for the Wii, which while released in the seventh-gen was just a few steps above the (then-)previous-gen GameCube in terms of processing power. We're also in the fifth year of the Switch hardware/specs being out in the wild, while Forces on the Switch was released during the platform's infancy. Even given the changes in lighting/rendering (which up until very recently looked like a net downgrade from the original) that might make things more intensive. The idea that they can't get Colors Ultimate to run at 60FPS on the Switch is beyond me, personally. It would be like if Tantalus, when hired, was unable to get the Switch version of Sonic Mania running at 60FPS. You're working with a game that runs on toaster-level hardware at this point.

    $80M US/DOM [Theatrical] + $78 INT [Theatrical] + $60M+ [Disney+ Premiere Access] =

    Est. Total of $215M Opening Weekend Worldwide

    Quote

    The Walt Disney Company sent out a widespread announcement that Black Widow made $215M-plus WW this weekend: Broken down, that’s $80M at the domestic box office, $78M in international box office, and over $60M in Disney+ Premier Access consumer spend globally. I understand that the latter figure skews more heavily toward US Disney+ Premier spending. This is the first time that Disney has released actual dollar figures about how their films did on Disney+.

    Even with Black Widow coming in lower than industry weekend expectations, and we’ll have more on that in a bit, the MCU title easily repped the largest domestic box office opening since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and the largest domestic opening weekend since Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker in December 2019.

    Disney states that the combined theatrical and Disney+ Premier Access opening makes Black Widow the only film to surpass $100M in domestic consumer spend on opening weekend since the start of the pandemic. Disney reports that the combined dollars on Black Widow‘s opening weekend marks the highest domestic opening weekend for a Marvel Cinematic Universe origin story after Black Panther ($202M 3-day) and Captain Marvel ($153.4M)

     

    Spoiler

    Paramount [A Quiet Place Part II] and Universal [F9: The Fast Saga]: "...we were keeping the box office throne warm for you until you got back." 😬😬

    Disney: "...I never left.🙂
