  1. okay i thought some nobody studio was responsible for making that fast and furious licensed game

    but it turns out they actually got slightly mad studios (need for speed shift, project cars) to make the game. that's not to say the studio is a graphical powerhouses on the level of, say, forza and gran turismo; but i've seen some user-created screenshots that have taken some pretty nice in-game photos of their most recent game (project cars 2 from 2017, on PC/XBO/PS4):





    ...so unless they were given a shoestring budget and threw this to some c-team group, i don't wtf happened that the F&F famila look like a early ps3 game that just entered development

  2. out of curiosity, how did the TGAs compare to some of the E3 conferences back in the summer? namely the lesser-liked ones such as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, etc.

    kinda feels like gaming showcase events as a whole were low energy this year, esp. with sony bowing out to focus on the ps5.

    1. Strickerx5


      Slightly worse imo, I mean at least each of those three had at least one game I cared about.

      Though honestly, I think this is just the result of the generation winding down. Most studios are probably on next gen development so they can't really show anything until both Sony amd Microsoft officially start showing off their consoles. Maybe with Microsoft's officially out there we'll start seeing more.

      The horreneous performance of the Game Awards each year is one of the few things keeping E3 alive right now.

  3. there were a few things i liked (the muppet sketch with dr. bunsen, beaker, and the goose from UGG was hilarious; and it was cool seeing reggie present an award and green day perform) but wow that TGA award show was rough. some serious cleanup / reworking needs to be done for future shows in regards to pacing and game reveals.

  4. Did you know that polar bears are the fiercest killers in the animal kingdom?

    1. skull902


      We need like a...sassy, gay R2-D2 in this film.

    2. Rabid-Coot


      I've seen what they did to an apple.

  5. Did you know that spiders are the fiercest killers in the insect kingdom?

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Weird because they're not insects. 

    2. Jingilator


      Australia wants to know your location

    3. TheOcelot


      They're arachnids not insects.

  6. Promare was good. Somehow it manages to strike a balance being appropriately subdued and delightfully madcap when it needs to and that's also reflected with both of the leads (with Galo representing the latter and Lio serving as the former) and the dynamic both of them have as the film goes along. The animation is also really good with its use of colors and the use of 2D/CG (the backgrounds in particular really gave me parallels of The PowerPuff Girls Movie). It's really unfortunate that domestic showings are limited, as I'd say seeing it in a theater with an audience also really boosts the entertainment factor to a really fun high.

    Some partially masked-spoilers.

    There was a point where the movie decided to be self-aware out of nowhere with a certain reveal and it was absolutely the funniest scene in the movie. The entire theater I was in erupted with laughter.

    Oh, and can I also add this:

    --That-- one scene where Galo saves Lio's life got the biggest cheers and applause in the audience I was in. If you've seen the movie or read spoilers for it, then you absolutely know what I'm talking about. It also totally explains all of the fanart floating around for those two.

  7. bought a ticket to the redux version of promare (subbed) tomorrow. there were only three seats left at the theater i bought it from. time to see what i missed out on back in september.

    if it wasn't for the fact that tickets are $10-$11 and i'll be busy with finals, i'd probably buy another ticket for one of the dubbed showings on tuesday.

    e: on the topic of animated movies, i watched klaus yesterday. gorgeous-looking and well-animated movie; i especially loved how the story weaves in the hallmark mythologies of the santa claus legend by serving as an origin story as to how they came about through jesper and klaus' actions.

  8. i like how twitter reminding me that i started my twitter account a year ago today just made me remember that the whole tumblr nsfw ban fiasco also happened around that time 

    it's really funny because now that i think of it, i don't remember any posts, threads, or news stories of people looking back at the event at all in these recent weeks. even on tumblr i didn't see anything about it on my dashboard.

    1. JezMM


      People have kind of gotten over it.  All the folks who abandoned tumblr have settled into their new homes and everyone who is still on tumblr has gotten over the fact that explicit material is no longer allowed (though there are still nsfw artists on there who believe nudity in art is banned due to all the misinformation that went around, even though it's still completely acceptable on tumblr as long as there's no explicit activity happening).

      All that really happened was a sort of general decrease in exposure for artists as people needlessly left because the content changes were overdramaticised by the community, or left in protest of any changes happening whatsoever.

  9. *enters classroom wearing timbs, baggy jeans, a backwards cap, and proceeds to la-z-boy's on instructors' desk*

    Here's an super spicy take--Sonic games would sell better if Sega gave them mainstream advertising again

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Here’s an even spicier take:

      sega hasn’t done that for any of their games in a really long time

      unless you lived in japan, you weren’t getting squat

  10. https://www.cartoonbrew.com/business/christina-miller-is-stepping-down-as-president-of-cartoon-network-adult-swim-and-boomerang-183066.html

    The AT&T/TimeWarner merger racks up another executive departure. Who would had seen Stuart Snyder (of CN Real infamy) serving a longer tenure as CN/[as]/Boomerang president?

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I mean, Snyder is seen nowadays as the George Lucas to Miller's Kathleen Kennedy (cuz wumon wuin' evwifhing): At least under Snyder's we had variety and creativity in shows, and went great lengths to reverse what he caused towards the end of his run. 

      Meanwhile, Miller chased away all action shows, made Boomerang the opposite of what it was ment to be, kept TTG stealing the whole channel, and overrall was more juvinile driven.


      If this means no more TTG, instant improvement in my book

    2. Ferno


      bring the CGI city aesthetic back and they can do whatever else they want tbh

      like Gumball would fit those bumpers like a glove

      also i know it wont happen but daytime toonami again? plz? then again we'd lose acquisitions like TTGL, KLK, and Food Wars because no way in hell would they exist on the CN side of things without 90's/ 00's levels of BRUTAL censoring, so I guess its for the best that Toonami stays where it is

  11. A few Accel-centric things.


  12. King K. Kan we get two Fs in the chat?


  13. for those who missed it last night, i suppose:


    sonic at an airport

    1. Solister


      Is this Sonic 2? What's the context? Gimme more details!

    2. Milo


      @Solister Unfortunately no, ha. These are concepts I personally came up with for an airport-themed Sonic zone. I have some more ideas for this concept but this is what I wanted to share for now. 

    3. Solister


      I thought someone found one of those Sonic 2 concept arts:


      Comparing now side by side I see they had their differences, but I think you couldn't get a better accolade than being confused by the own game creators, well done!

    4. Milo


      @Solister Wow, thanks!

  14. If Sonic had to trudge his way through an airport-themed platforming level...


    1. Wraith


      Great stuff

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      And have Badnik passengers and airport personnel blocking him or crowding around Eggman themed airport shops. These airport shops can also take away from Sonic exorbitant amounts of rings in exchange for their "merchandise" (like bombs, powerups and what not).

    3. Polkadi~☆


      Airport security gates, which would trigger an onslaught of badniks if Sonic ran through them!

    4. dbzfan7


      Terrible. Sonic should have to wait like a million hours or so to complete this stage, have his flights delayed, and would have to fight with security because they demand you to remove your shoes at airports. A total nightmare level.

    5. Milo
  15. hey ssmb! are you ready to meet douglas fir, the talking christmas tree this holiday season?


  16. just some gesture references I thought would be interesting to share


  17. After revisiting it for the first time in years a few months back, I don't know how I even completed any of the challenges in Ford Racing 2 when I was a kid (my guess is b/c it was for a time the only PS2 game I had I guess). The handling of the cars feels awful, especially in terms of turning. It hits that perfect sour spot of mildly aiming itself to the side when you do anything but the most extreme turns, and then outright swerving towards whatever direction you're trying to play when you do an extreme turn. There is no in-between whatsoever, even at slow/alternating speeds they control like this.

    I was originally going to say that it felt like the designers/programmers prioritized aiming for realism/simulation of driving a car to the point they forgot to make it fun; but on the other hand, I've never driven a car that felt this much of a pain to turn like with this one. It feels like driving a hovercraft during a thunderstorm, not a car.

  18. For those who missed it yesterday, art topic update.


  19. Only planned to watch one episode for the evening last week but ended up seeing the majority of the season, I'm honestly really surprised how much I got caught up into watching Green Eggs and Ham. Having finished it today, gotta say, I'm really impressed with this show. Besides the art direction/animation and the characters (speaking of which--special kudos to Gluntz, she by far was my favorite); I don't think I have ever constantly paused/re-winded episodes in a show so much to catch so many hidden jokes and visual gags in the backgrounds and newspapers. Besides being really clever they're also perfectly Seussian in nature. Surprisingly emotional too at one certain point.

    There's a second season in the works, so I can't wait to see that; but honestly I'd love to see this crew tackle more of Seuss' works.

    1. Ferno


      Would love to see them make a Grinch special, if they did it'd feel like a true successor to the old 2D classic

  20. Art topic update. Profiles for my OCs, take two~ *claps clapboard*



  21. lmao paramount better hope to god the sonic redesign actually cost them $5 million like the indiewire report says and not the rumored $35 million that's going around

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      It cost $400,000 to animate this character.............. for twelve seconds.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      if it costs that much to animate a twelve second clip then sign me the fuck up

  22. >mfw reading all these Stadia reviews confirming what a lot of people suspected


    1. Polkadi~☆


      so long gay google

    2. Harkofthewaa


      Seriously though, all of this Cloud gaming talk needs to die until ISP's find it in their hearts to provide unthrottled internet. Stadia: up to 4K 60fps gaming till your 30GB a month fast data runs out in like three hours. Then you have to wait a month to be able to play again.


  24. tumblr_oeg2d7RKZO1sh0iino1_540.jpg


    seems accurate

    1. Bloxxerboy


      Well, the name didn’t lie. Never said anything about a full skeleton.

    2. Winter Spirit Ultima

      Winter Spirit Ultima

      This thing should hold a trumpet/tuba and we'd be good

  25. Just realized May 2020 is going to the big CG animated film battle of the television series.

    The Sponges vs. the Scoobs.



    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      And both just so happen to show how the main characters met their pets.

    2. Zaysho


      @Supah Berry ...so Shaggy is the pet?

    3. Ryannumber1Santa


      Huh, I guess they changed the plot. Originally it was a prequel to the entire series iirc
