  3. [ Wkd film box office report / analysis ] 

    Woof at SLOP 2, its box office take has fallen off a cliff compared to the first movie. It's only now passing $300M worldwide in its sixth week at the domestic box office (the 2016 original had grossed roughly double that amount in the same amount of time). Due to the low budget ($80M) it's making some money regardless, but Illumination is probably speechless right now. SLOP 2 likely won't even hit $400M at this rate.

    Meanwhile TS4 (DOM #2 for this week, $770M) is going to comfortably hit $1B WW at some point in the next few weeks. It's going to be interesting seeing whether that will get to the billion club faster than the Aladdin remake ($960M) does.

    Either way, both look like they won't be able to pass that threshold before Spider-Man does. Far From Home (DOM #1 this week) has nearly $850M WW in the tank, in its second week alone. Unless Sony pulls the rug out, more Spider-Man MCU movies seem to be a guarantee at this point.

    On a final note, it seems FFH (alongside the vanilla re-release) has given Endgame the final push it needs to ultimately dethrone Avatar for the worldwide box office throne--it's only $8M away...

  8. Uhhhhh summer update time I suppose. Block Thoughts Piece that sat on the backburner for a while. Went through a few different concepts for this before I settled on the final one here. The block is a practice paperweight for the pointy end of Betty's sword. No idea why it's in an apartment lobby, however. Regarding standalone artpieces, this is all I have for now because I was pretty quiet. That was because I busy rescuing something I started back in 2018 out of development hell: Hexology. A series of pieces centering on sorcerors and witches created by me (Wiola), kytobitt (Liz), @Spin Attaxx (Jessica) and @Ferno (Elixy). Hocus (All four characters.) "...pocus....focus...locus?" Spear Me Your Jokes (Jessica and Wiola) "Watch where you're aiming that...figuratively and literally!" Cauldron Calamity (Liz and Elixy) "I don't think that's what's supposed to happen..." Expect more posts featuring more pieces later down the line.
  9. I prefer consoles and I'm still waiting for the reported more powerful Switch....

    But wow, I really like the look of the Switch Lite. The color choices, the design, that they actually added a D-Pad...and they even nailed it at a $199 entry price point.

    Switch hardware sales are already doing great, I wonder if the Lite's going to makes those sales explode even further....

    Post-credits stinger:

    A pile of ashes, representing the former phoenix, sits on top of a table, lit up by a dim bulb. A mysterious man, shrouded in silhouette, comes in with a broom and a dustpan. He proceeds to scoop the ashes up.

    The silhouette steps into the light, revealing...

      Not to ruin the fun or anything but I'm so sick of the stereotype that Australia is nothing except crazy animals itching to kill anything that moves. Every continent has it's unique share of unusual and deadly life forms. 

  14. So conceptually something like SegaSonic or Flickies' Island, but with modern production values and designed to be more of a 2D game instead of isometric?

  17. I think we've kinda been overstuffed with both 2.5D games and side-scrolling sections in [supposedly] 3D games, that I'd rather focus on purely 2D or purely 3D games for the time being. But I will say this--if we do get a purely 2.5D game again, I hope they take cues from Classic Sonic in Generations. I really liked how the designers actually took advantage of 3D graphics to have dynamic camera movements (with different angles and camera pans) and have the level design exist on multiple planes. It was honestly a fun concept that I haven't seen utilized in many 2D Sonic games. Sky Sanctuary in particular excelled at this and why it's my favorite level in the entire game. It also helps define the entirety of City Escape due to how the GUN Truck was incorporated to chase you around and even through the environment. It would be nice to see a 2.5D Sonic game take these ideas and develop it further. The main idea I'd like to see it taken with is a 2.5D game that has the gameplay locked to one plane, but the level design isn't, with eight-way style paths designed in a 3D setting. Something like Bug!, albeit much less "early 3D videogame" and much more contemporary and polished.

  20. we're in the technology endgame now

     

  21. played a PS4 demo of crash team racing nitro-fueled at a walmart today. first time playing it (original or remake) and i think i got 2nd place for at least two or three of the races. i tried figuring out using drifts for speed/boosts but i don't think i ever got the hang of it lol. i did pick up on getting boosts through hopping on ramps/jumps, and i'm glad my hunch on how to get a starting boost when the race begins was correct.

    and wow i found myself constantly falling off the track with the ice level. those sharp turns were super irritating.

  23. Also going to add to this and note that regarding Sonic; the series has a history of establishing each new location as existing in a different location of Sonic's world/universe, whether that is on a new island or a different area of a country or on a different planet entirely. They were designated to be their own thing, not just in the context of whatever story/adventure they were a part of but also in relation to other settings in the series. So seeing Green Hill aesthetics (if not Green Hill itself outright) constantly crop up used in what are supposed to be new environments stories comes across as really uninspired. At least with the NSMB Mario games, they don't hold any pretensions of being games set in new locations (even given a lot of Mario games have actually been asking for that from the 2D games for quite some time now).
  24. >CTR outsold TSR four-to-one in its OW in the UK

    I told y’all this would happen

    1. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      I mean, there was zero hype for Sonic and people actually care about Crash as an IP, so this wasn't really that surprising

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      The game literally had 1 month to live. But even if you remove crash from the equation the game had its own share of problems which hurt in the long run.

    3. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      Yet TSR ended up being the better game.  Less bugs and half the load time.

    alright pixar, you win this fourth round. that was much better than it had any right to be.

    the really odd/brilliant thing with TS4 is that out of the recent pixar sequels that can be accused of being too similar to past installments (dory, I2, and maybe cars 3? i haven't seen that one yet), i'd say this actually a subversion. even though it goes to the well again with certain ideas seen in the second and third movies; the story being penned as more of an bookend for woody's character instead of a general "new" chapter with most of the cast (in spite of having the "4" in the title) actually helps it feel more like a standalone installment.

    and even putting that aside the writing is really on point. really like forky's initial obsession with staying in trashcans to cement his origins and woody's gradual approach/development into having him realize his importance to bonnie. i also do like that the story strikes a note on the concept of toys being damaged out of the box with gabby; and i really appreciate how she's a composite of past villains while not actually being an antagonist.

    and i really admired what they did with bo peep. i'm really happy that the idea of the movie focusing on her and woody's relationship was kept as an integral role to the story.
