    TCB got a reaction from Crow the BOOLET in Yakuza 7 (January 16th, 2020 - Japan; 2020 - West)   
    Just announced and confirmed that the next mainline entry in the popular Yakuza/Ryu ga Gotoku series is aptly titled Yakuza 7: Whereabouts of Light and Darkness. Surely the folks over at SEGA West will shorten that title for us less intricate fans in due time. This game's protagonist (from Yakuza Online) is named Ichiban Kasuga.
    As for the gameplay...remember way back to April Fools Day this year where footage of said protagonist was in an JRPG setting and like none of us actually believed it was gonna be in a numbered entry to the series and just for Online? 
    Well that's the new gameplay style for 7. What madmen they are.
    Here's the teaser trailer (down below), official website is now up with info, and Twitter translations courtesy of Gematsu:
    Who hype? I'm hype.

    Reading those tweets of the artists and wrtiers is just heartbreaking, man. 
    Damn.
    At the very least we can see IDW picking the license of the comic up, hiring as much of the crew as possible and...idk. 
    I'm just going to see where this goes. What's done has been done.

    That vocal theme was hype as hell. Cheesy yes, but hype all the same. Really set the mood for this adventure. Holy hell eveything in that direct I loved. I have one comment though. Free roaming camera is only usuable in those Free Areas now. Would you rather see it be used for the entire game or just relegated to those areas?

    TCB reacted to Legendary Emerald in Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Gangsters Paradise is on Page 380)   
    Let's talk about trailers for a moment. It's very rare that a trailer this bad and unpromising still leads to a good film, but it'd be disingenuous of us to say it has never happened. The Ghosbusters 2016 trailer that this thread so often brings up was indeed no good, but the film itself turned out to be perfectly fine and funny, and a lot of the people who still hold strong negative feelings for the film either 1) never saw it when it came out, or 2) are the type of people who watched and created videos with titles such as "Feminazis RUIN the GhostBUSTAHs." It was a slightly above average comedy (by Hollywood standards) and dealt no damage to the franchise overall.
    Conversely, let's look at Suicide Squad, a movie that got re-shot to hell and back after audiences enjoyed a trailer that promised a light-hearted action romp. Unfortunately, the studio had ACTUALLY created a more depressing and dark film that test audiences weren't going for, so a hacksaw was taken to the whole thing to create the Frankenstein's monster of cinematic garbage that got released into theaters. It was one of the more successful DC films at the time, but public opinion swung hard against it in the span of only a couple months after release.
    Taking it back to Sonic now, it's far too late for the film to get extensive reshoot like Suicide Squad, for better or for worse. The film has already been delayed multiple times and whether the studio is happy about it or not, this seems to be what we are getting. The absolute best we can hope for is a Ghostbusters situation where the actual movie has better jokes and the Sonic brand is not damaged. Comedies in particular are hard to produce trailers for, but I don't want to give Sonic too much benefit of the doubt when clear cut mistakes like Sonic and Robotnik's designs are on display. The action angle also muddies things, as I haven't been convinced that prolonged action scenes with a poorly integrated CGI character fighting mechs and drones will look good. The recent TMNT films at least had a shitton of money poured into them to make their action scenes pop, but Sonic is looking rather cheap, and people's comparisons to the protagonist of Hop and the Garfield films makes that even clearer.
    I've no hopes for this film, but I'd like to be proven wrong. I could write a small essay on why that "child in a bag" joke doesn't work, but it may not even be in the final film cut because of the way Hollywood trailers fabricate scenes from scraps left on the cutting room floor sometimes. The chances are slim, though, and no one should have to give this film the benefit of the doubt; the Sonic franchise has managed to limp by on good-faith purchases for far too long now and it's gotten us nothing but bad games and shit movie trailers lately. I'm not going to pay to see a film that looks like this, not even for the riffing potential.

    TCB reacted to Plasme in Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Gangsters Paradise is on Page 380)   
    I know people here seem to hate hearing about sensible corporate decisions regarding not being literal to the source material (and Eggman's design is one such sensible move), but no, no you can't just put Eggman from the game and into the film unchanged. Look at virtually all adaptions of comics, cartoons, anime et cetera that have actually worked (mostly in the superhero category). If you put Wolverine in his comic appearance it would just look cringey to the vast majority of people, because only the absolute hardcore lunatics would push for such a sylised design to be used in a product which resembles real life.
    It's the same here. Eggman was designed to be in a cartoon environment, it's why he looks godawful in games like 06 which tried to make him look more realistic. If you adapted him in the most literal way imaginable then it would be a disaster. And it's not simply the case of 'the general public would hate it' (but they would), but a lot of fans like myself would be utterly turned off too.
    Think of making a cartoon or game into a film as a form of translation. It's hard to translate languages literally and some combinations really don't work. In some instances, you need adaption and localisation. Well, if you are going to make Sonic a live action movie (admittedly very dumb decision), you have to adapt him because otherwise it just doesn't translate literally.

    So lemme get this straight: 
    Not only will this game have a soundtrack toggle option aka Reignited (assuming that's also CNK tracks getting the toggle too), but there will be a "Classic" adventure mode and a "NF" inspired one eith full car characterization and allowing you to choose who to race with before each race?
     
    More and more it's cementing my decision to make this my goty.

    So I watched this video on the reveal earlier done by Gnoggin...and I think he may be onto something with what these games' "gimmick" may be. For that, let's take a look at the Japanese logos:

    Notice that red and blue pokeball like symbol? Now look at the previous two gen logos for their starting set of games:


    The symbols for Mega Evolution and Z-Crystals are in the exact same locations as the one in SWSH. As we all know those two mechanics were the defining gimmicks they were pushing and both played roles in their respective game plots. Also if you noticed in the trailer right before the player entered that Grass Gym a statue bearing that logo was shown. Plus it's on the jersey of player before he enters a stadium, which presumably what these new Gyms are. 
    That logo must be significant otherwise why would GF put it in the logo? Also I think the traditional concept of what we know as Gyms in previous games may not be the same for these. These look to me much more grandiose, with large crowds and stadium like atmosphere. That might actually play into being a new kind of battling mechanic altogether. Who knows.

    I just remembered that Grookey's introduction may have hinted at cricket, with the way it tapped at some marked soil as if waiting for the bowler? I wonder then if Sobble's line will reference water polo, rowing or one of the many other water sports, lending each of the starters a traditional British sport theme.

    TCB reacted to Kiah in The Avatar and Signature Topic   
    Today marks my 7th year anniversary on SSMB and like several members have noticed and mentioned I continued my tradition of changing my avatar here as it is the only time I do so. 
    Since joining here on this day back in 2012 I have always had a Sonic-related avatar and from 2013 to 2018 I had one with at least Sonic and Tails in it. This year I took it back to the beginning of my tenure here with Sonic only: 

    This image is from the ending cutscene of Sonic Unleashed and looking back I’m surprised that I’ve gone this long without an avatar from my favorite video game of all time! I’m definitely way overdue for showing Unleashed some love. 
    Going back to the image, after Chip’s departure, hearing his parting words and taking his necklace as a keepsake of their adventure Sonic takes a brief moment to reflect. Then he’s off to his next adventure doing one of the things he does best by running. I feel like this moment is indicative of moments in life in general and it’s definitely indicative of my own life in the near future.
    My signature remains untouched for another year. It is still the infamous brofist between Sonic and Tails from one of the ending cutscenes from Sonic Colors, which is my second favorite video games of all-time next to Unleashed. Sonic and Tails being best friends and the brotherly love between them across all forms of media is my favorite thing in the entire Sonic series and I absolutely love it! Especially by means of this gesture between them 🙂 
    The quotes from Richard Bach, John Madden and the middle quote that I saw on a bumper sticker that I felt was some really good advice still remain in there my signature. I have had members continue to tell me they appreciated those quotes so keeping them there made sense to me seeing that it has helped others as that is something I really enjoy doing and strive to continue to do here at the SSMB as long as I’m here. 
    Now via my avatar and signature I have the best of both worlds with my video game favorites in both Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colors 😉

    Goddamn that night sky is gorgeous. This art direction is such a improvement over N-Sane while still being faithful to the original source. Can't wait to see tracks like Hot Air Skyway and Oxide Station. The reveal trailer and press release mentioned that there will be even more tracks and characters that weren't in the original right?
