  1. I can't believe they revealed that Sonic's father is Ken Penders

      Then they had to go and ruined it at the end when Sonic decides to call himself a Naka anyway.

      I personally thought the Naka ending was really heartfelt and touching. Sonic chose not to live with the family that wants him to change, but with the family that chooses to willingly accept and embrace Sonic for who he is. He made his own family, and that's a beautiful thing.

  3. The Sonic Movie ends with Tom the Cop kissing Sonic's stiff, floating corpse, bringing him back to life before he, Agent Stone and Tom's dog turn Super to take down Jim Carrey.

     

    If this sounds at all strange to you, then you weren't a fan during the mid-2000s.

      you ever see a post and want to die instantly?

  4. Jeez, between the coronavirus, pork shortage, bird flu wiping out another major food stock and now an earthquake in Sichuan, China is in pretty bad shape.

  5. I'd highly recommend not viewing this spoiler if you want a delightful surprise at the end of the movie. (assuming it's true, best to play it safe and assume it is)
  6. It's not as simple as calling up the actor and having them come into the studio. You need to go through their agent/representative (good luck), schedule things out and calculate how much money it's worth before you can even cut a deal. Just to have them record a line or two for a free to play mobile game. It isn't worth it.
  7. Editing in a CG Bob Hoskins as Mario at the post-credits scene to tease the Smash Bros cinematic universe was a bold move by Jeff Fowler, ngl

  11. Sonic has had it rough ever since the switch to 3......

      Totally should've said ...& Knuckles

    2. Miragnarok

      And even rougher after the start of the 2010s and his switch to exclusivity.

  12. I'll never forgive SEGA for taking a perfectly good concept like Sonic Riders and turning it into a botched motion control tech demo cash-in.

    1. Milo

      Even putting aside Free Riders (which wasn't hard to do, I never owned a Kinect), I'm still mad about how Zero Gravity dismantled all of the mechanics that made me love the gameplay from the first game. Tricks for air, hitting enemies, boards and level design having Heroes-styled abilities/shortcuts, rings upgrading boards, all of that was either nerfed, pushed to the background, or trashed entirely.

      How I wish that we got a Riders sequel made by the actual crew that directed/designed the original game (which, tellingly enough, was actually UGA before Sega merged them into Sonic Team during the game's production.)

      I had it but played it up til I completed the main story then barely went back...

       

      Really wish they'd have just released an update allowing control pad play after the kinect stopped being a thing

    4. Tarnish

      Tarnish

      Yup, that's typical SEGA, always drawing the wrong conclusions.

      "Well, they hated Free Riders which was built around a dumb gimmicky peripheral...guess that means they don't want any more Riders games."

      And besides that, it was just a cheeply made game. Weren't the cutscenes just still images like they did with Team Sonic Racing?

    5. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Riders would died without Free Riders existing. 2010 was when they parsed down on Sonic spinoffs. 

      Plus since the whole reason it exists was due to a deal to promote the Kinect, I would assume there's something in the deal that meant patching with regular controls wasn't possible.

      "2010 was when they parsed down on Sonic spinoffs"

      Sonic Boom games, Mario & Sonic Olympic games, Sonic racing games, Sonic mobile games: "Am I a joke to you?"

    7. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Sonic Boom isn't a spinoff so much as an entirely different initiative. 

      Mario and Sonic (and the other crossover games because that's been most of the Sonic racing games) are a different beast, not Sonic games alone.

      And I was referring to console spinoffs, but the mobile market is probably why those died. 

      So yeah, they're all jokes to me. 

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      There use to be regularly released Sonic spin off games; Advance, Rush, Riders, Rivals, Storybooks... A year never went by without at least one full-size Sonic game being released, usually more. Take 2008 as an example; Zero Gravity, Chronicles and Unleashed all came out in that short time, with Black Knight following not far behind.

  13. That's a poor excuse, robotic beetles and monkeys not making sense is exactly the point, it's Dr Robotnik. He's already being portrayed as the eccentric "last resort," that could include drones and droids that look like colorful bugs and such with no problem. You don't even necessarily need to stuff animals inside of them. Just going with the established motif would've been good enough for this movie, but they wouldn't even make a concession for that!

    Puyo rep hopes skyrocketing

  15. After a few minor mods, Sonic 3 AIR is now my favorite Sonic game, just barely above Mania.

      ThatOddLiam

      Wasn't aware 3 AIR had mods. What did you add in?

  16. The last two trailers were uploaded on a Tuesday. Today is Tuesday. It could be today that you get your final trailer.
  17. Local 58 is pretty great stuff

      Apparently it tells a story (out of order) and people are trying to piece together whats happening. Theres a few YouTube videos dissecting it. 

       

      I recommend watching those after you've seen the videos themselves to not spoil anything. It's great.

    3. Sean

      Sean

      Watched all of the videos, it's neat stuff. Surreal horror is my jam, reminds me of some SCP Foundation articles.

      The gatekeeper SCP still gets me. 

  18. If you listen to podcasts while gaming, what games do you like to play? 

    I would often play Wind Waker HD (once you get the ability to sail anywhere) on low/mute while listening to different casts. Same with Puyo or Tetris. For some reason, playing games while listening helps me focus better. 

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I just cannot do that. If I had something to listen to while playing a game, I'd be down a pit or in a dead-end faster than trying to doom myself deliberately. 

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      @Your Vest Friend Amen. I can understand listening to a podcast when working or something, but doing so when playing a game would just completely suck me out of the experience.

      Unless I'm grinding in an RPG or hatching Pokemon or doing something mindless. That's just busy work.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I don't listen to podcasts, but usually listen to reviewers like SomeCallMeJohnny, or Caddicarus and the like when I'm playing games.

      The only real exceptions to the rule is Overwatch and/or multiplayer games where I need to concentrate fully, and listen for footsteps and ambient sound to get an idea on player locations or story-driven games where the majority of gameplay consists of dialogue (so things like The Walking Dead, Heavy Rain, or adventure puzzle games like Sam & Max).

      The only traditional game I can think of that has the same effect is possibly GTA V, since I tend to listen to the in-game radio more often than not, instead of having something play in the background. 

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I actually do multitask while gaming but I usually do that for Pokemon, mostly because I'm grinding for something.

      If I do that for regular RPGs I'd get lost in the story. I'm at the post game for these things. lol

    5. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      The game's sound ques are usually pretty important and even if they aren't the ingame audio is more immersive. I'll make an exception for something like Overwatch where you can just sort of mindlessly fuck around

    6. JezMM

      I listen to a lot of podcasts but can't say I do during gaming particularly.  I like to listen to music during otherwise fairly-musicless games like Overwatch (in fact after noticing that game shared a lot of environment tropes with Sonic games, I ended up making a playlist of Sonic music to match each map) but even in such a game, when I've tried to play while listening to podcast, I found the game too distracting and realised I missed a bunch of the podcast.

      I think I've done it with really simple games like Peggle before, but anything that has a narrative to it, I usually want to be into that narrative, even if it's a game I've played a million times.

      Generally I save podcasts for menial tasks like colouring comics (not the initial drawing though, since I'll have the dialogue playing in my head as I draw and that will make me ignore the podcast), walking the dog, doing dishes etc.  If I'm playing a game I'm already entertained, I never feel like I need a second layer.  But I'm also not the entertainment multi-tasking type anyways. I'm not the sort to turn on the TV while playing a game just because I want the noise, etc.

    7. Diogenes

      it's mostly been mario maker 2 lately, but i'll play almost anything while listening to something else. at least, anything i've already played through before; first time through i'll focus on the story and atmosphere more, but once i'm familiar with it i'm fine going on autopilot. i usually find it kind of hard to just sit and listen to a podcast (or even some videos, if the appeal is more in the audio than the visuals) so i like having something kinda mindless and routine to occupy my eyes and hands.

  19. Sonic CD-i

  20. Mario and Rabbids is $15 on the eshop if you were wanting to snag that 


    Also did anyone snag Yoshi's Crafted World for a $1? I missed that. 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      $15 for Mario + Rabbids is well worth it. That game should have been awful, it should never have existed, and yet it's really really good.

    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      So the Gold Edition is $20 and I didn't realize this before I bought the base version

       

      This is so annoying. To get all the DLC, it'll cost me about that amount. Not gonna bother, unless the DK DLC is that good?

    I'm absolutely losing my mind at this tweet

      Thanks guys! Interview went well

  23. Thanks for the heads-up on We Got This Covered; I wasn't aware of their shaky record. I'm updating our article to reflect that. 😨
