  1. this animation was used in a film that had a roughly $20 million budget

    which was given a wide theatrical release

    in 2004 (same year as spider-man 2, i robot, the day after tomorrow, HP3/prisoner of azkaban, etc.)

    (4:22 - 4:29)

      The only thing that's cheaper than those effects are this film's attempt at shock humor

  2. Just got back from getting my 2nd COVID-19 vaccination shot, I'm fully vaccinated now!

  3. Zero surprise at the Global Licensing report saying no new games this year. Had this suspicion for a while now.

    Nice to have some confirmation now instead of continued radio silence from what remains of Sonic’s PR group for the rest of the year.

    Also, can’t help but laugh in knowing that this likely means all of those “rumors” of original 30th anniversary games —including the Zippo “leaks”— are total bupkis.

  4. i'm kinda mad that i'm late to this meme because it's hilarious (this dude's hype levels being set to 20/10 and the whole "video: this is no scam! narrator: it was indeed a scam" background behind it)

      oh lol this is a nice throwback

  5. the remaining bastions of 3D platforming i guess

  6. I honestly shouldn’t be surprised at the Toys for Bob news, but still...

    *sigh*

    Never change Activision.

  7. you know what would be incredible?

    the next sonic game is announced as a co-production between sonic team and arzest

    1. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Incredible....or more so horrifying?

    2. McGroose

      McGroose

      You know what would be even more incredible?

      The next sonic game is announced

    3. Blue Blood

      So Arzest actually worked on M&S Rio Olympics 3DS. Naoto Oshima wasn't involved IIRC, but there you go. I guess...

      So it’ll be just as mid as a lot of installments.

      You know what would be incredible? The next Sonic game is announced, period.

  8. from what i've read from those who have seen the father, anthony hopkins genuinely gave a fantastic performance for his role, and that a second best actor oscar win for him would had been warranted

    but hoo boy, the way the whole thing was planned, coupled by the way it actually played out....i don't blame anybody who felt chadwick boseman deserved a posthumous win for ma rainey's black bottom feels absolutely scorned by what happened tonight. that ending to the show was a mess, to say nothing of the optics that were produced.

  10. Reviews are coming in for The Mitchells vs. The Machines (initially retitled Connected until a few months ago). For those who don't know, this is latest Lord/Miller-produced Sony Pictures Animations film, written by Gravity Falls alumni, available on Netflix April 30.

     

    93% Tomatometer, 26 out of 28 reviews recommend. 8.2/10 avg. rating.

    Consensus: "Eye-catching and energetic, The Mitchells vs. the Machines delivers a funny, feel-good story that the whole family can enjoy."

  11. Got my first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine a few hours ago. Thankfully no major symptoms, besides my arm being a bit sore.

    1. Winston

      Winston

      Yeah, the arm soreness is all I had when I got both of them. Might depend on what shot you got too, I got Pfizer but my dad got a little sick on the second dose of Moderna. Nothing terrible though. 

    2. Milo

      My vaccine is the Pfizer shot as well.

    either happening in this movie's climax or in the next movie, one thing is clear: la familia is going to space! the final frontier!

      and the color wisps

  16. assuming the colors remaster is real, do we expect this to be a multiplatform release? or be a switch (+ maybe PC) exclusive, since colors was a wii exclusive?

    (and does anybody expect anything from the Dimps DS game to be included, or nah? lmao)

    1. Wraith

      Wraith

      i heard this morning that nintendo code was used for the lighting. if it comes to other platforms it'll have to be a more substantial rework.

      it could easily just be the same game released for switch though.

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Considering that Mania and Forces are multiplatform and that many Sega games are multiplatform these days with only outliners being something like Sakura Wars or obviously Mario & Sonic, it's more than likely. Monkey Ball Banana Blitz was a Wii exclusive but then got a remake/remaster, similar thing to many console exclusives that Sega published/developed (e.g. Yakuza series).

      Switch will most likely be the highest selling platform outside of PC though.

      Sonic Team has Hedgehog Engine 2, don't they? Colours is going to get a huge glow up.

  17. MGM: hey Disney, can we rent your CG lion technology for a minute

     

  18. Mark Elliot, radio DJ and very prolific voiceover artist, has died at 81. If you grew up watching [US/CAN] commercials for Disney products from the 90s-2000s, his voicework should be rather familiar. Here's a playlist of trailers you can hear his work:

    And here's inarguably one of his best-known spiels, for the 90s home video crowd:

    He's also known for doing radio spots for the original Star Wars film, as well as voicing promos for Smokey and the Bandit, Chariots of Fire, and The Goodbye Girl; among other works (including some Fox/CBS releases).

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      He's basically been the Don LaFontaine of my childhood. No viewing on any of my Disney VHS/Early DVD would've ever hold as big a spot in my heart if not for hearing his exhilarating voice preceding them all. He was like a very friendly gatekeeper that soothed me in whenever I'm about to depart for a good one hour ride. Most kids movie/show trailer voiceovers can sound a little samey and ripe for mockery, but Mark always tends to sell me on whatever he's advertising, to the point I considered the previews about as pleasant to watch as the movie itself. This is a guy who I don't hear nearly enough praise sung about him for how big of an influence he was to so many children of our time. 

      For me, Mark Elliot was the voice of Disney itself. I give his whole family my condolences, and may his legacy carry on.

      The only positive i'll give is that there's actual 2D animation while i was expecting full 3D from the start. Everything else is just diluted Ready Player One.

  24. i know some of us are tired of the balan/sonic comparisons

    but balan ain't helping its own case

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Balan is more of a Forces than an '06. Forgettable and boring, but only particularly "offensive" to people who have an interest in it. By most standards it's not a very good game and not something worth your time. '06 is notoriously bad on the other hand, and will always be remembered for that.

      It's not really comparable to Sonic beyond the talent involved and the disappointment it brings.

    2. Azure Blue Tori

      Azure Blue Tori

      It's more like Yoshi's New Island to me. Both made by Arzest, and incredibly simplistic and amateurish compared to the rest of the platformer genre.

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Can we take some time to appriciate how the industry has given gamers and the press another excuse to make Sonic their resident whipping boy?

       

       

      ...And SEGA didn't have to move a single muscle to achieve that?

  25. 😬😬😬

    "For Naka, who joined Square Enix in 2018, Balan Wonderworld will be his first full-scale platform game in quite some time. "I think Square Enix has an RPG image," Naka said, "but I don't think I'd be good at making RPGs." Of course, Naka has made RPGs, such as Phantasy Star and Phantasy Star Online. However, the genre he feels he is most skilled at is still platform games. Therefore, he received permission from the company president to make a full-scale platform game with the condition that it was his 'one chance'."

      Every time I hear something about this game I get the impression Square just set this up to fail. It sounds like Naka did his fair share of mismanagement and some poor design decisions but it also sounds like this game was not close to ready to release when it was originally announced.

      remember when yuji naka made nights into dreams, rodea the sky soldier, phantasy star and sonic 3&K

       

      there is no way this didn't get some kind of sabotage

    7. Azure Blue Tori

      Azure Blue Tori

      Just looked up Rodea comparison videos between his original Wii version and the Wii U port recently, and wow. That was a level of sabotage I couldn't believe at first. I'm really curious to hear the dirt regarding Balan's development in the coming months.

      I kinda feel bad for him.

    9. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      He'll probably bounce back. He's bounced back from all the other stinkers he's put out over the years.

      Square-Enix probably won't want anything to do with him, though.

    10. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Azure Blue Tori The Wii U version was built off the 3DS version at the behest of the publisher, and the Wii version is closer to the original vision. The publisher screwed him over there.

      @Polkadi~☆ I mean... This doesn't look like sabotage at all. It's just not a very good game.

    11. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      I mean, I guess if we consider Naka himself "the sabotage", then maybe.
