  2. Iizuka said at the Sonic panel at SXSW that the next Sonic game "has entered" development. So I presume we won't hear about it for a while anyway. As for Forces being hyped...I guess that was true for most of the pre-release period, but the actual launch couldn't have any less fanfare if they tried. The marketing team even pulled a Rise of Lyric and didn't send out review copies. Arguably because by that point, many people inside and outside Sega knew the game was a dud.

      By "five night event" do they mean they're going to air the first five episodes to kick the series off, or is this just going to be a mini-series?

      Also, has CN ever used such a high-profile song for, like, anything? Crazy Train must have cost them a fortune to license for that trailer.

      Between this, Amphibia and Owl House, we're getting lots of adventure-esque story-driven cartoons lately and tbh I'm all for it. A decade ago I used to say "if i ever get to make a TV cartoon it'd be like this" but now its already becoming the standard to where I wouldn't be doing anything revolutionary if I still wanted to attempt that, lol

      @PC the Hedgehog Actually unsure on the first question. Could go either way as a proper series or a miniseries I guess. I do hope they're still doing miniseries, speaking of which. OTGW set an excellent standard.

      As to the second question, I'm guessing CN may have free access to the song if it's in parent WB's music library. Although I'm not too sure on that.

      There are just a mixture of emotions coming from me on this.

      From fucking laughing my ass off to actually being worried about the general state of society and where our resources are going.

  5. latest news reminds me that i really should get back to watching OK KO to begin with. it's a pretty fun show with occasionally really good action setpieces.

    kinda surprised the sonic series had enough clout at CN to get a CN crossover to begin with though, especially with how boom was thrown under the bus with airtimes.

    even given OK KO takes some heavily identifiable cues from sonic. (there's an goofy old cat that's a background character, who literally wears a yellow variant of sonic's shoes. i think he also has one or two of tails' tails as well)

  6. ....I still think the Sonic design is worse than what that Cats adaptation is going for. I'm less bothered with the designs for that movie than I am with what medium they're using for the effects. I can't tell if it's motion-capture CG, straight CG, or live-action.

      Cats looks fine. Weird, but fine. Sonic just looks bad.

  7. It’s hard to be “allergic” to a genre that the series hasn’t honestly given a go at TBH. I guess the treasure hunting/mission stuff in the Adventure titles (and to a lesser extent, Sonic 3D: Flickies’ Island) can be considered attempts at collect-a-thon/sandbox platforming genre, but they’re still bound by traditional Sonic game system rules to the point I wouldn’t really consider them as genuine installments. Which is the main crux of the matter—you have to change up the main gameplay system for the series if you want to give it an earnest shot. Which, to be honest, isn’t really a big concern for this series at all in light of the various experiments it has been put through anyway (for better but mostly for worse). If done smartly an collect-a-thon adaptation for Sonic wouldn’t be much different than, say, how Mario went from the 2D NES/SNES games to 64 in regards to reworking the material they have for another frontier. To say nothing that a collect-a-thon/sandbox Sonic can actually bring the series into new territory in how the games are designed; with respect to their mission structure/goals, level design, and especially game mechanics. As far as I’m concerned I see way more value in that than trying to preserve the focus on speed as it currently exists in Sonic games (the only thing holding up Sonic gameplay).

      I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that TSR fell off the charts and nothing else at all.

      I can't help but feel some sort of schadenfreude when seeing this

      I hope SEGA learns the right lessons from this.

      I haven't been keeping tabs on this since I'm not a fan of racing games. Last I checked, TSR was being very well-received. What's the deal?

    4. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Little marketing beforehand and absolutely paling in content compared to the other fun racer that was releasing just a month after TSR.

      Plus interest in Sonic generally dwindling while Crash is experiencing insane popularity right now.

      @PC the Hedgehog Apparently everything has to be a competition now. 

      Really, the attitude that everything that doesn’t make maximum money or isn’t the biggest trend around is a flop or failure is peak capitalist-corporate nonsense.  It’s kinda disappointing to see how pervasive that perception is that it’s even penetrated anti-corporate cultures.

    6. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Hype for TSR kinda died out like 2 weeks after the game came out. Didn’t help that the game had poor connection issues and month after release they said they’re will be fixing it but by that time CTR was already out and stole it’s thunder. People still play it but good luck finding a room with 12 players online.

      There's nothing wrong with showing companies that people are more willing to spend money on a product that has a ton of content than on a product that doesn't have nearly as much.

    8. Mad Convoy

      Mad Convoy

      @Thigolf Nor is it wrong to point out unfortunate implications and subconscious attitudes that often arise in the way that people go about showing companies that.

      Crash Team Racing shouldn't even be getting those numbers.  It annoys the fuck out of me that it not only has the same problems that Sonic games get shitted on for but also has TWO game breaking bugs at launch, yet it's considered to be a "great game."  I haven't seen one person outside of Crash fans talk good about how "fun" it is either, tbh.

      I bet you out of the 1.5 million people who claim they're going . . . only 100 max show up

      I sure am loving this as a meme though XD

  10. sonic has an angree

    (One of my better Smash Bros. plays with Sonic.)

     

  11. the area 51 memes have officially gone too far

      Meme culture really does get annoying tbh at these points. Like I remember hearing news of people getting severally injured or killed because of YouTube or vine trends and memes

      Huh. I assumed Guardians Volume 3 was essentially gonna double as Thor 4. I wonder where they're going with this.

    3. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Are they revealing the titles for Phase 4?

    4. Milo

      Milo

      @Teoskaven I think this one is just a working title...

      Although

      apparently on Marvel's Facebook account, there's private/un-activated pages for "Black Widow", "Marvel's Eternals", "Dark Avengers", and "Young Avengers"...possibly planned reveals for Comic-Con?

    5. KHCast

      Well things certainly are getting more interesting. I’m down for more hemsworth anyday lol. Seeing him in Guardians and this will be fun

  13. Okay but when are we getting a new Shining Force SRPG that’s like the 1990s games, and not another Media.Vision/Tony Taka ARPG

    *crickets chirping*

    ...can we at least just get a re-release Shining Force III on the Sega Saturn then? Including a proper translation/release of the two (out of three) scenarios that didn’t leave Japan?

    *crickets stop chirping*

    ...

      Menace2Society

      I can’t think of anything other IP that got screwed over as badly as Shining Force. Oh god, did they massacre it. 

  14. Missed this comment, but I’d like to point out those examples you listed as results of the developers “listening to the fans” are results that have the understanding and clarity of a game of telephone in a road construction zone. Imagine you walked into a sandwich shop and told the chef you liked hamburgers, and the waiter brought back a hunk of raw rat meat covered with sprinkles and slammed against stale bread. But hey, the sandwich turned out that way because the chef listened to your request too much, right?
