  2. If Sonic Omens is trying to make a profit, then why is it taking Sega so long to C&D? They'll have every right to do so and I doubt fandom will be complaining much unlike with Nintendo.

    1. Rabbitearsblog


      I'm assuming that the fandom might start complaining if SEGA told them that they can no longer do fan games (which is something we don't want to happen).  But, if it comes down to only Sonic Omens being taken down because of the creator making a profit off of the game, when they aren't supposed to make profits off of SEGA's character, then I guess the fanbase would be okay with that, as long as it doesn't lead to SEGA telling everyone to not do fangames anymore, like what happened with Nintendo.

      Plausible deniability? No wait, that's not the right term. But they could ignore it if they wanted to, provided it's lowkey enough, or heck, maybe Sega really does not know of it. For the former, the more it spreads the more likely it can't be fake ignored. Has there been some terms/conditions Sega has put up in regards to fan projects?

      I'm not well versed at all in this stuff, but their patreon doesn't mention Sonic in any shape or form. Some vague hints to it like "Tornado" exist, but otherwise, you're just giving money to an indie studio working on an undefined game. Nowhere on the page mentions you are giving them money for their Sonic project, you're just supporting the studio in general. Chances are there isn't really a case to be made against them, compared to other patreons, where they directly advertise and even have perks for the game if you pledge. 
      That's my guess, anyway.

      Not sure if you guys knew this. But fans have been making money off of fan content already for ages. There is near endless amounts of Sonic fan artists making money from their fan art on their patrons, and in japan they straight up openly sell fan manga over there. I understand those are not fan games so they are bit different. But just saying.

  3. If the fates of the original Batman and Superman films were any closer, and if Batman & Robin had the same budget cuts as Superman IV, they'd probably film it in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and fail to make it look like Gotham.

      Oh boy, do I have a story for you then.

  4. I got Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning on PS2

    So, in spite of screwing over their biggest game to date, CDPR bosses are getting a huge bonus.

      This is just what AAA game development looks like.

      I was more shocked when they recently mentioned future games despite the fact that their latest release is still on fire. I thought they'd at least be all hands on deck, ironing out every kink before releasing two or three expansions for free before even thinking about moving on, much less publicly announcing it.


  6. I'll still maintain that the first Tomb Raider film is a fun movie.

    But I'd rather watch an Uwe Boll film than watch the 2nd one.

  7. Demon Slayer episode 1 was quite a dramatic start.

  8. Saw the first Hobbit film.

    Not a fan.

  9. Concluded my Superman catch-up with Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.

    Definately the worst in terms of overall quality (even if most of the blame can be thrown onto Cannon Films), but at least it's entertaining in how inept it is and with the performances of Christopher Reeve and Gene Hackman.

  10. https://www.ign.com/articles/tales-of-arise-september-release-date-next-gen-ps5-xbox-series-x

    The new Tales of game now has a new release date and is releasing on next-gen

  11. Nice to see the Great Ace Attorney use actual British VA’s for the characters 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It really makes all the difference to me, personally. 

    2. AlphaRuby


      I like that British VA’s are starting to be used more in major games.

      Not to say I don’t like the American ones, far from it, but it’s nice for your own country to get more of a shot 

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Not just that, but it's some variety too. Video game voice acting seems too be handled by the same few dozen VAs, often shooting for very similar performances.

    4. PublicEnemy1


      I stand by that DQ8 is my favorite in terms of voice acting with accents, since there's a diverse amount of them in that game.

    5. Teoskaven


      No Adam Howden, 0/10 not really feeling it.

    6. DanJ86


      I'm certainly sick of the same voices in every damn game. Should be a nice change of pace.

  12. https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/12768-nier-replicant-ver122474487139

    Trophies for the Nier remake, spoilers of course.

    One of them isn't too popular.

    1. Teoskaven


      Wich one you're referring to? The only one i can think of being too infamous that's still there is


      the one attached to the legendary flower minigame, and even then this version will be easier since modifying the PS4 clock and resetting is an easier process than on the PS3.


    2. AlphaRuby



      The daredevil one


    3. Teoskaven


      Couldn't find anything, what's wrong with that?

    4. AlphaRuby



      Considering that Kaine's intersex, people are not happy about the achievement having her fetishized, especially considering her backstory.

      That alone has me kinda hesitant buying the game now, straightaway anyway.


    5. Teoskaven



      Did that type of achievement made you considered delaying/dropping Automata?
      Also, you don't even know if it's the same as in that game where you can't really see anything and the playable character throws the camera away annoyed. This not to mention the possibilty of skipping said trophy by purchasing it in-game if you wanted the platinum but didn't want to do that.
      Also also, Kainé's entire dress code can be considered that if you want to look it that way, the cutscenes have plenty of ass and boob shots on their own. I would find amusing if people started only now saying it's problematic or something when they had 11 years (1 at least if they knew nothing before this version's announcement) to note it.


    6. AlphaRuby



      It’s not even just that (putting aside that in Automata the character were cyborgs, not intersex).

      According to the Wiki, the version that this remake is based off has her aged 17, which if true is yikes 


    7. Teoskaven



      For all you know the age stated in this version is gonna be the same as the one in western Gestalt, i.e. 20, potentially changed again for us like when it happened for the original most likely for the exact same reason. Appearance-wise the character looks the same, so it's not even a matter of that.
      Also, you know the twist already: replicants are technically not humans either, reguardless of gender, hence why they can't reproduce. If you want to put it on that angle, the Yohra android units are basically the same in terms of artificial machine-organic body.

      Let me put it like this: Sony has multiple times censored or blacklisted games with nudity and/or sexual themes not suited to them even when it didn't felt necessary, particularly from japanese games, so if they allowed this to happen now, it's probably not catastrophic and/or you have a way to circumvent in case you don't want to do it.

    It's finally been announced!

    I guess the Trilogy didn't sell well on Xbox because GAA Chronicles is releasing for everything except that.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      So just for the sake of reference, these are sales figures of the HD trilogy from the Capcom leak:

      Switch - 462,395

      PC - 245,339

      PS4 - 103,235

      Xbox - 4,821

      You can see why the Xbox is getting shafted here...

      Anyway, this is great. I'm very much looking forward to this!

  14. Just saw Supergirl 1984.

    Yeah, not good at all, yet kinda funny mostly down to Faye Dunaway and her sidekick.
