    Oh, it was Naka's birthday today.

      Sonic 2 code day

  2. #cancelsonictwitter is trending.

    Which, okay, finally cancel culture provides justice to the world.

     

    But I don't understand why.

      I gave it a search and as a general rule I don't feel like trending hashtags "count" when half the posts are people asking why the hashtag is trending lol

      Below acceptable portrayals of characters that aren't real is a major threat to our society, it seems. So let's shame a social media account for the franchise's current state despite having no say about where it goes, nor is even involved with media production.

       

       

       

      Frankly while I'm grateful they didn't, you'd think the Sonic Twitter would be the one to do "#CancelEggman" posts first.

      Most people are talking about this:

      But it actually started with this apparently:

      can I have your trending tags instead

      BCmediaplayer has became a meme himself, after someone found out about his admittedly over-stretched intro.

    7. iambitter21

      iambitter21

      in addition to this, he's also became a clown after he'd been discovered to be an apparent transphobe and trump supporter. and to add salt to that, he's been even MORE of a target because of his ideology that "everything after sa1 wasn't technically a sonic game."

      he's been in such a damp place ever since 2 days ago, and that's sad, since that "sonic team cycle" video was very thought-out. I really hope that all of this stuff gets behind everyone on twitter....

      oh who am I kidding, it's fricking TWITTER, they're never gonna stop.

      literally how my brother and dad reacted to me playing this.

      also, i used to play it before i went to school too

      That was 17 year old me.  Ahh... The days where I was naive and blind to the cynicism toward sonic games. The days where internet access wasn't easy for me to get to. I was just playing sonic games and having a good time.😊

      ...yup, this me, my cousin and sister and my brother. It was quite thr bonding experience.

  4. At this point I wouldn't be half-surprised if Disney remade Emperor's New Groove; but turned it into the pretentious boring piece of shit movie that it was originally shaping up to be before the creative staff revolted against Disney management.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      The script for that is waiting in line to be greenlit; it's right behind Disney's pitch for a Seth Macfarlane live action Toy Story that'll adapt the original Black Friday script

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Heck, it'd be worse since they take out musical numbers a lot of the time meaning that kinda catchy Yzma song would be cut.

      If they do that, we riot.

      In fairness, taking the original/early concepts of their animated films and making another film out of that would at least be a far more novel approach than the stuff they’ve done with the Lion King and Dumbo.

      That said—considering how the Disney remake train is only concerned with their biggest hits, I think we can rest easy there.

    Holy shit. G4 got Sessler back?!

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I'm really, really hoping that G4 sticks to games this time around instead of what they ended up becoming.

      I'd love to see Icons make a comeback.

      Holy shit, I might actually watch it now.

  6. Steve Blum does that.

    At the same time that Uncle Vic goes to a convention and makes fun of people wearing masks.

      Count on Toonami to spit straight facts, always.

  7. I think Bruce fighting this ninja asshole as Batman is pushing things a bit far. Like I know he wants to keep up the charade, so people don't get suspicious about how skilled Bruce is as a fighter.

     

     

     

    But it's very suspicious that Batman showed up to fight this asshole.

    In Japan.

    Where Bruce just happened to be.

    After Bruce was challenged by this guy.

    1. Wraith

      which batman thing

      Now hear me out, what if Bruce Wayne is Batman? 🤔

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Yeah, that story was fun but a little weird.

    4. Speederino

      Speederino

      It's already kinda silly that nobody puts the pieces together in the first place. Billionaire with a famously tragic past disappears for years, and comes back at the exact same time a guy in a bat costume with expensive gadgets starts beating up criminals. You just kind of have to accept that everyone in the DC Universe is a tiny bit stupid.

    5. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      @Wraith Pretty sure he's talking about the one from Batman: The Animated Series.

  8. The She Ra show is the last one I expected to have a JonTron moment in a livestream; even as someone who never watched it.

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Wait, what happened?

    2. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      I read up on it and I'm not sure what to think. ...Couldn't "Sow" just be a farmer and not a slave as people keep asserting?

      Like, black people can be farmers, guys.

    3. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Nevermind again. Apparently people on the stream were explicitly making jokes about slavery. Wow.

    4. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I'm not too surprised tbh.

  9. I wonder if NSMBW's internal codename was Dress.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      That technically could be NSMBU Deluxe's codename since they tried making Peach playable in Wii but couldn't get the Dress physics right, so Deluxe was to show they've overcame that obstacle. (Even the it's used on someone else as an excuse to not make Peach rescue herself)

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      The dress problem was pretty bullshit since Peach and Daisy are playable in Super Mario Run 

    3. Milo

      Milo

      @Dejimon11 I'd imagine everyone knows the real answer was that the developers never actually considered making Peach playable by that point, but they couldn't be bothered to actually admit that when asked about it.

      "Dress physics" didn't stop the designers/programmers from making Peach playable in SMB2 USA on NES hardware, roughly two decades prior at that point.

  10. The DCAU character pages on TV Tropes are the first wiki entries I've read where I'm pretty sure whoever wrote them did it one-handed.

  11. Watching these clips of Sonic X that TMS keeps dumping on my YouTube dashboard, it makes remember that one thing it did do well that Sega has had serious trouble with since is making Eggman a doofus who is actually legitimately threatening. Some of that is probably down to Pollock's acting of the character then then versus Pollock now, but I don't think all of it is.

    1. Tornado

      Tornado

      It also reminds me how awful Tails was in it.

    2. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      it's just too bad he's against a completely unfazable Sonic. I can buy that Eggman is somewhat competent but legitimately just outclassed, but it's so annoying how they just have Sonic no-sell EVERYTHING, even Eggman's big moment in SA2, which the anime still tries to play for all its menacing worth, they play Sonic as having already figured out completely what to do and ruining the whole suspension. Same for every other villain like the Meterax just being an unstoppable bastion of evil he could never amount to. Always a bigger fish and it can't just be by a few inches, oh no, it has be a great stinking white shark that could snap up anything in its path.

      I think this was the biggest issue with Eggman this era, you could still tell there was a competent edge to him, but it means so little when they keep pitting him against one dimensionally overpowered forces of nature. Or Amy who just thrashes him by anime gag mentality. :P

  12. Imagine being so stupid that you call out Apple alone as being "super greedy" because Epic wants to make more of a profit off you on microtransactions

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Probably doesn't help considering that this whole thing stinks of Epic having literally just set up a scenario to bait Apple into a lawsuit. According to BBC News, Epic had a lawsuit ready to go within minutes of the app being removed, and doesn't want any money from Apple, but rather want permission to remove Apple's profits from their microtransactions altogether.

      This ain't Epic being generous at all, they're making more simply by cutting Apple out of it lol.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      Maybe Epic would have something resembling a case had they actually responded to the real reason Apple took down their app.

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      It’s shitty on Epic’s part but I’m also no where near on Apple’s side here either. They’re shit with the App Store has been increasing to stink by the week. One of which being denying Xcloud on there while other streaming services like Netflix continue to go unchanged.

      Tbh, I’m sort of all for anything that forces them to change their shit. Rather it not be Epic but hey. It’s really just a few big corps having a dick measuring contest at the end of the day.

      Just saw that 1984 ad thing and... yeah this post I saw said it best 

       

       

       

    5. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      I immediately laughed at all of this once I saw the pre-baked hashtag added into Fortnite to #freefortnite, and their usage of 1984 as a symbol in a premade animated short, literally minutes after Apple took action, but the call back to Apple's original marketing ad is legitimately clever, and after seeing how xcloud was shut down on apple because of these rules, I don't think it's completely pointless if they end up succeeding in putting a dent in apple legally. It's just so tone deaf in a world that is in dire need of other monopoly-severing actions literally anywhere else, and rallying a #freefortnite towards teenagers and kids with legit political parallels is one of the worst ways to go about it. Feels like it has corporate hands all over it, rather than an actual call to justice it should be.

  13. It's Q1 sales of Sonic games when there hasn't been a Sonic game released since Q3 of last year. What's the problem?

    1. Thigolf

      People not reading or thinking and just looking at the graph and going

    2. Wraith

      Wraith

      Sonic fans should be celebrating. I wouldn't have guessed those games were still generating that much revenue 

    3. Sean

      Sean

      No game at all during Q1 or Q4 of last year? Sonic is doomed

  14. Seems like instead of trying to make money by selling WB games, they are saving money by... uh... gutting DC, Warner Brothers and HBO.

  15. It's kind of hard to tell sometimes when a character is supposed to be Lupin in disguise or when a character is just incidentally also voiced by Tony Oliver

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      They're all Lupin, even the ladies. They're clones.

      ....fuck, that's true

  16. Imagine, if Sega hadn't chickened out and had merged with Namco, Harada would be making Sonic games now.

      We'd have better Sonic representation in Smash Bros

      Balding Spider

      They don't get that Ron Perlman played a scumbag on TV, it's not his designated personality.

  21. It's a damn shame when you see an anime with great characters and snappy writing and a fun overarching plot and then it fucking collapses only 12 episodes into its 26 episode run.

      I was fine with the back half of Franxx. It at least salvaged itself.

       

      I'm speaking specifically of Read or Die TV.

  22. Someone should ask Sony to do a followup video for this.
