  1. I can't wait for this movie, I think we got another Nine Lives on our hands

      There's no Christopher Walken, so it's nowhere near Nine Lives tier.

  2. ResetEra posted their Games of the Year Awards results. Results were based on ERA members were able to vote for / give honorable mentions to games under a list a criteria for a certain period. Votes for games applied to the overall GOTY award, awards for specific genres, and awards for specific platforms.

    Mania with 560 points and 19 honorable mentions was thus ranked...

    - #15 on the overall GOTY list

    - #4 in Best Action Genre

    - #7 in Best PC Game

    - #9 in Best PS4 Game

    - #4 in Best Xbox One Game

    - #5 in Best Nintendo Switch Game

  3. Sonic Mania Sales Thread

    Should note, the list only counts games that are exclusively available on the eShop. So it doesn't factor in digital sales of retail games like Zelda: BotW, Mario Odyssey, and Splatoon 2 among others.
  4. Are you up for another wall of text episode about historical Sonic sales? Then check my latest post here!

      On the topic of Sonic sales I've been meaning to ask for a while: Did Sonic Unleashed bomb? It's like nowadays Sonic Team doesn't seem to have much of a budget.

      @Dejimon11 Unleashed sold 2.45M copies in its fiscal year. Despite the mixed reviews / Werehog panning, it's actually the best-selling mainline Sonic game since the first Adventure on the Dreamcast (2.5M units as of 2006). I do think the bolder marketing campaign played a big part of those sales as well as its multiplatform release / multiple versions (the "HD" version on PS3 and 360 as well as the "SD" version on PS2 and Wii).

  5. Sonic Mania Sales Thread

    Roughly a month ago back in December (Dec. 22), Mania was near the bottom of the list of Switch eShop games at #18. As of the end of this week, Dec. 22 (and roughly five months since release), it's now risen to #12. I think it's safe to say by now that Mania's starting to following in the footsteps of other classic Sonic games (in re-releases) of having a long shelf life after release....at least on the eShop, anyway. That in itself is almost ironic to think about, given the failure or non-splash of what's been a long line of Nintendo-exclusive games since 2013. --- On that note, I'll like to take this opportunity to post a somewhat related wall of text. Today I combed through Nintendo Everything to look at their backlog of weekly eShop charts (which goes all the way back to June 2011 for the 3DS). From that I decided to hash together a list of how long other Sonic releases have coasted on the eShop weekly charts (original 3DS releases only, not counting re-releases on the Virtual Console. Though I will say this: Triple Trouble occasionally resurfaced at the bottom of the charts after years of absence for some odd reason, last showing up in summer 2016. The 8-bit GG version of Sonic 1 also resurfaced a few times, but it didn't have as much staying power). Designations of the game's platform (3DS/Wii U/Switch) included. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (Wii U). eShop run: 21 consecutive weeks / five consecutive months. Debuted on 11/30/12 at #5 (first Wii U eShop weekly chart!), ended consecutive run / last charted on 4/22/13 at #16. Sonic Lost World (Wii U/3DS). - Wii U eShop run: Three consecutive weeks. Debuted on 11/4/13 at #6, ended consecutive run / last charted on 11/18/13 at #12. - 3DS eShop run: Two consecutive weeks. Debuted on 11/4/13 at #17, ended consecutive run / last charted on the following week, 11/13/13, at #13. 3D Sonic the Hedgehog (3DS). eShop run: Six consecutive weeks / one consecutive month; 13 weeks total. Debuted on 12/11/13 at #6, ended consecutive run on 1/20/14 at #20 (5 weeks). Reappeared in July 2015 for 2 weeks (7/1 - 7/7), in November through December that same year for 3 weeks (11/18 - 12/7), and re-appeared August 2016, July 2017, and November that same year, one week each. Last charted on 11/15/17 at #3. Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games (Wii U). eShop run: Appeared only once in the charts, on 2/17/14 at #16. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U). eShop run: Appeared only once in the charts, on 11/26/14 at #17. Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS). eShop run: Never appeared on the charts. 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (3DS). eShop run: Four consecutive weeks, 18 total weeks. Debuted on 10/14/15 at #2, ended consecutive run at 11/9/15 #8. It then appeared for only week across three weeks from mid November to early December, and stayed on for six more consecutive weeks. It re-appeared in late July / early August 2016, in late November / early December that same year, late June / early July 2017, and mid-October that same year; two weeks each for all four re-appearances. Last charted on 10/18/17 at #11. Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (Wii U/3DS). - 3DS eShop run: Never appeared on the charts. - Wii U eShop run: Nine consecutive weeks / two consecutive months. Debuted on 7/1/16 at #17, ended consecutive run / last charted on 8/26/16 at #18. Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice (3DS). eShop run: Never appeared on the charts. Sonic Mania (Switch). eShop run: 23 consecutive weeks / five consecutive months...and still counting! First appeared on 8/17/17 at #1. Recently appeared this week (today, 1/20/17) at #12. Sonic Forces (Switch). eShop run: Three consecutive weeks. Debuted on 11/10/17 at #6, ended consecutive run / last charted on 11/24/17 at #18. So to rank the weekly total eShop appearances for Sonic games altogether... 1. Mania - 23 weeks (still going) 2. All-Stars Racing Transformed (Wii U) - 21 weeks 3. 3D Sonic 2 - 18 weeks 4. 3D Sonic 1 - 13 weeks 5. Rio 2016 (Wii U) - 9 weeks 6. Lost World (Wii U) - 3 weeks 6. Forces - 3 weeks 8. Lost World (3DS) - 2 weeks 9. Sochi 2014 - 1 week 9. Rise of Lyric - 1 week X. Boom: Shattered Crystal; Rio 3DS; Boom: Fire & Ice N/A: London 2012 (3DS); Generations 3DS; All-Stars Racing Transformed (3DS). Seems Sega only started digitally releasing Sonic games on the eShop on their launch day with Lost World. Reportedly some of these games got digital releases after the fact for certain territories, according to the Retro wiki. Bonus fact: The trailers for Lost World and Mario & Sonic Rio 2016 lasted longer on the charts (in the Videos category) than any version of both games (in the Software category), Lost World trailers were still showing up as late as early April 2014, while Rio 2016 was showing up as late as last month, December 2017).

  7. Saw Paddington 2 earlier today. This film for me was like watching the Shaun the Sheep Movie a couple of years ago; I can't really find anything to complain about it. It's one of the best-crafted films I've ever seen, and it's one of those so-rare situations where what was already a surprisingly excellent film gets a followup that is just as good or even better. We're only a few weeks into 2018, and yet I'm hard-pressed to presume any of the films coming later this year will match its quality. The screenplay especially I really hope gets some award wins/nominations. The writing just manages to make all of the elements in the film fall together in place virtually perfectly.

    If I was able to see this back in 2017 when it originally came out, it for me would be in the running with War for the Planet of the Apes and Logan as the best film of the year. Really wish more people in America went out to see it (though granted, Paddington not being big in the US compared to its home country in the UK, and WB not having much time to really build a proper marketing campaign for it after buying the rights to it on such short notice didn't help), when it came out last week, at least its performing better elsewhere overseas.

      Madden surprises me. The games gotten weirder and weirder since the N64 days

  9. NPD December 2017 reports came out today. CoD WW2 was the best-selling software of the month, while  the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling hardware of the month.

    CoD WW2 was the best-selling game of 2017 overall, as well the best-selling game on PS4 as well as Xbox One. Zelda: BotW meanwhile took the top spot as the Nintendo Switch's best-selling Switch game of the year.

    The overall top-ten best-selling games of 2017 is as follows:

    1. Call of Duty: WWII
    2. NBA 2K18
    3. Destiny 2*
    4. Madden NFL 18

    6. Grand Theft Auto V
    7. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
    8. Star Wars: Battlefront II 2017*
    9. Super Mario Odyssey**
    10. Mario Kart 8**

    * No PC Digital sales
    ** No Digital sales

    (Forces was the #7 best-selling Switch game in November. Nowhere to be seen in any capacity in December.)

  10. Speaking of Smash man it makes me wish Miiverse/YouTube Upload didn't get shut down because over the past few weeks I got a bunch of good replays. Especially with DK and Dedede. Got some hilarious KOs with them.

  11. where will sonic team go from here

    The Adventure games were the point where the original gameplay got heavily demolished in favor of Sonic gameplay where constant forced inputs of speed was the only important factor in the game's design. I'll always give Adventure 1 some credit for decent rolling physics and not having completely pigeonholed level design, but Adventure 2 was when Sonic Team threw the baby out of the bathwater. From that point the 3D Sonic gameplay that was in place until Unleashed was virtually a precursor to what eventually became the Boost gameplay when you take a hard look at the level design philosophy and gameplay focus.
  12. Happy birthday, Kiah! :)

  13. LTTP, but near the end of December last month, Nintendo published a list of the top 30 most recommended Switch games in Japan. The results were based on data collected from surveys sent out to Switch players in the region.

    You can check it out from the original JP website here. The results may or may not surprise you.

      Steamworld did being that high does surprise me

    2. King Koopone

      King Koopone

      Most didn't surprise me even though in terms of placements a few did like why Splatoon 2 being low when it was the game that caused stock shortages in Japan, Monster Hunter being that low when its a popular thing over there (but then again they probably have played it on the 3DS) and FIFA. Then again I'm used to seeing FIFA as Number 1 on consoles.

      Only ones that did surprise me were Steamworld Dig 2, Overcooked, Human Resource Machine (then again might not be considering the salary man culture of Japan) and Sonic Mania in a way.

  14. Nintendo Labo (April 20th, 2018)

    Don't really think this is going to be as much of as dud / lacking staying power as others are suggesting. Going off the top of my head there really isn't anything like this on the market IMO outside of maybe the Toys-To-Life stuff, and even that itself is a dying genre. Kids also like building and playing stuff, they're obviously not the same thing as Lobo but Lego and Minecraft are also pretty popular, and certain Lego sets / Minecraft worlds aren't as easy to build as others. On that note, it's also acknowledged to be aimed at "kids at heart" in addition to kids, so I imagine that it's also being targeted at enthusiasts who go for the more meticulously-designed Lego sets and/or Minecraft worlds as it is. Am in agreement with those that feel they wouldn't personally be invested in it, but thinks it looks really intuitive and is a neat concept all the same.
