  1. So how come the dubs keep changing the bgm, anyway? That's really disappointing. I remember when the movies kept the original soundtracks.
  2. The thing to keep in mind is that Sega of Japan is really... averse to stuff that they did not make themselves? So I doubt they'd have the movie influence the mainline Sonic games.
  3. What's the protocol when using gameplay footage in videos? E.g. reviews, retrospectives, analysis, etc. Should credit be delivered through slide-in cards, or is an ending credits with video names/creators enough? Asking 'cause premiere keeps crashing when I try to add new cards for slide-in. x_x

  4. The answer is simple: The Youtube Algorithim. Sometimes people make clickbait titles because it's a good way to take advantage of Youtube's frankly broken algorithim.
  5. Ugh. I'm sorry, but that fan design is hideous and I'd argue you can have an "adult" Sonic movie without making him so ugly. 😕
  6. The Sea3on comic has been going for years. I don't really see why they need to make an animation when they can just concentrate their efforts on getting the comic back on its feet.
  7. Pixel art as an aesthetic choice is just more economical if you're a small indie developer. Not only are the assets smaller in scale, but it's generally easier to produce pixel art than more higher res, drawn animations for a game. To me it's no surprise that it's so prevalent because of budgetary reasons and time reasons.
  8. Yeah, uh, can we not argue that having LGBT+ characters is forced? 'cause one could just as easily argue that having straight romances is forced as hell. :U
  9. This might be a reasonable compromise. All this person did was adjust the face slightly and it looks so much more bearable.
  10. But that's the problem. Sonic is a very cartoony, stylized character. His proportions, his face, everything is distinctly different. And while I get that they were trying to go for a "realistic" approach, the end result looks like a tiny human in a costume. And maybe they shouldn't have kept the face that way? They could still use his voice, but it's obvious the mo-cap face being left so close to a human structure did NOT end well. Hell, I'm pretty sure detective pikachu used some mocap, and his face looks infinitely more stylized and likable.
  11. What about studios like Pixar and Dreamworks? I'm p. sure those don't rely on mocap. At the very least, Paramount should've stylized more instead of trying to keep Sonic as creepily human as possible.
  12. Just because the design is for the movie doesn't mean it's above criticism. People were right to take issue with the uncanny and creepy human mouth, beady eyes, and overall awkwardness of his proportions.
  13. The thing with Pikachu is all the pre-reviews are glowing, from what I've seen. Folks who saw the Tokyo premiere praised its heart and overall quality. I'm sure it won't be perfect, but it saddens me that a property as iconic as Sonic isn't getting the same respect.
  14. Yeah, I'm gonna vote with my wallet here. I'll go see Pikachu opening night, but if I do watch the Sonic movie, it sure as heck won't be in theaters. I just can't fathom HOW the movie was made like this. Especially in this modern era and juxtaposed with Pikachu.
  15. God, movie Sonic looks horrifying. The lips. THE TEETH. And them doing the mmmmarketing strategy of having Carey look like Carey for most of the film instead of Eggman because gotta have that actor recognition! Then I look at Detective Pikachu, where Ryan Reynolds has top billing but. Looks like an actual freaking Pikachu. See, that's the thing. Pikachu feels like a genuine passion project with heart and care put into respecting the source material and celebrating. Sonic looks like a board of executives got together and tried to make it as mmmmarketable as possible. It just feels so generic and uninspired.
  16. How to Train Your Dragon 3 released trailers ridiculously early. It happens sometimes.
  17. It's still more likely going to be Sonic 2, and I seriously doubt casual fans have even HEARD of the Sonic 1 Bible. I've been a fan since the 90's, and I never heard of it until I started using the internet.
  18. Detective Pikachu preserves the Pokemon proportions instead of trying to go for some wonky quasi realism that looks creepy. That's probably why people approve of it more than what Paramount has done with Sonic.
  19. I'd just like to point out this tumblr post as a counterpoint to "Sonic needs to look like a real creature." Because if you look at Detective Pikachu, even though they are giving the Pokemon more realistic textures, the one thing they are not changing? The overall proportions. For example, Charmander... Same big, cartoony eyes, but more realistic textures. I'm not saying Sonic needs the conjoined eyes, but there is a better balance to strike.
  20. You guys are forgetting the far less terrifying cartoon animal paw option.
  21. Sonic's hands and feet look tiny, and that's extremely disturbing to me. At least Detective Pika didn't wildly change proportions.
  22. Does anyone else wish we'd get an uncut, faithful dub like what Viz did with Sailor Moon? I'm probably in the minority, but having watched all the series up to Xros in sub, I feel like there's a lot that was lost in translation, even if the older dubs have their own charm. The Xros dub was awful, though. WAY too dumbed down due to network regulations. x_x
  23. One of the last reveals was an Echo fighter. They couldn't even reveal one DLC character. If this is all we were getting, they should have saved K. Rool for last. 😕
  24. How utterly disappointing. Like... Piranha Plant? Really? Ugh. I guess the Grinch Leak was too good to be true, but this still stings.
