  1. I think it's best for me to only get a PS5 after we have God of War 2, Spider 2, Horizon 2... All the goods number two. We're only having a taste of what the next-gen is truly capable of with Ratchet and Clank, and I can only dream what Insomniac can achieve in Spider-man 2. If the PS4 game made us FEEL like Spider-man, on PS5 we're gonna fucking BE THE SPIDER-MAN.

      We need to be able to ignore Peter's bills ourselves so we can really feel what its like to be Spider-Man. We got a glimpse of it in the last game, now its time to let us learn the meaning of "Parker Luck".

      Why stop at 2? Everyone knows the PS5 can't be complete without...

  2. Also, those leaked artworks are now official:
  3. Those leaked 30th anniversary arts (with the 3 Sonics) are official now. It's merch art.

  4. I never had any interest in Ratchet & Clank. Untill now. Might be the first game that made me want a PS5. I'll definitely buy after we get Spider-man 2, tho'. But Ratchet is flirting with me right now. HM.

      If you have or can get a PS3, it might be a good idea to try out at least Tools of Destruction, A Crack In Time and Into The Nexus in the meantime, as this new preview footage confirms Rift Apart is continuing the Dimensionator storyline that was left hanging before the failed 2016 reboot.

      I got the PS4 remake and played the first 2 worlds. Had fun, but didn't played more than that for whatever reason.

      Yuck. That's a terrible entry into the series.

      It was free that month on PS+ ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Fair enough, but still, trust me. It's a terrible first impression of the series to go off on.

      When did R&C 2016 go from

      "Best looking platformer of all time, looks just like the movie, Sonic cries himself to sleep knowing he'll never be as good as this, can't wait to play it"

      to

      "A black sheep in the franchise, the movie weighs it down, the writing and how it ruins the characters would make Pontaff Sonic games blush, don't play it"?

      @Supah Berry It's similar to how Sonic Colors was praised immensely at release but now many people soured on it.

    8. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Except, Colors actually is and was good I'm the first place.

      R&C 2016? Not so much.

    9. pppp

      pppp

      @Jovahexeon The Undyne I agree, but basically the reception to both over the years with people in general have alot in common, regardless of there being exceptions like us two with Colors.

      Ratchet 2016 is still one of the best games in the entire series on both a graphical and gameplay front, it’s just that the story and dialogue is a wet fart, and the music is a bit generic. It’s nowhere as bad as it’s being made out here.

    11. Jango

      Jango

      DO I PLAY IT OR NOT GUYS

    12. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Yes, play it solely for the gameplay. Just don’t let the story shape your opinion on the series’ plot, as 2016 is the outlier in that it has a shit story.

      Definitely try the other games in the series though. If you have a PS3, you can pick up most of the series there.

    13. pppp

      pppp

      @Jango Considering Insomiac abandoned that new timeline to get back to the classic one, don't bother. R&C's gameplay is easy enough to pick up, so you can either wait for Rift Apart or just try out the PS3 games.

    14. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      The game is free and one of the best gameplay experiences the series has to offer. There’s no reason not to play it, and it’s also a fairly short game so it won’t take long.

      it's disappointing compared to the other ratchet games, but thats it. it's still worth your time and better than most sonic games

      @Supah Berry so I’m speaking as somebody who’s an outsider but I do recall that had to do with the gaming brits 90 minute review of it. 

  5. Nothing is going on, literally nothing.
  6. One thing I've noticed are the red eyes in both designs, so perhaps he's under some kind of spell... Or he spent too much time with Snoop Dogg if you know what I'm sayin'.
  7. Not giving the benefit of the doubt to Activision or anything, but some artists and writers came clean about this on Twitter, and they left TFB in good terms, perhaps no one was actually "fired", but simply decided to leave after Activision's decision to send the studio to the CoD mines. Nicholas Kole deleted the tweet where he basically said everyone he's worked with got the boot, maybe because he thought that was what happened and later found out it wasn't like that.
  8. That's literally Sonic's head silhouette. That's not a logo. Where this "Sonic Studio" stuff came from after all?
  9. The whole Toys for Bob / CoD situation is so messy. Brilliant artists, art directors, writers, all left after Activision's decision to turn the studio into a CoD support team. According to the professionals themselves, they didn't got fired, but simply left in good terms. I admit I would too if I had their talent. Generic shit like Cod doesn't deserve these guys. Nothing against the ones who stayed at TFB, bills have to be paid and sometimes you don't have the luxury to just quit, but I still can't digest what happened. Just seeing their logo with the CoD motif makes me sick.

    1. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      Even their name sounds too silly and whimsical to be on Call of Duty

    2. Jango

      Jango

      Should've been renamed to Guns for Bob /smh

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      To be fair, COD's main audience consist of little kids and Bobs, so it make sense to become developers of their favorite "Toy".

  10. Say what you will about Marvel, but these bastards KNOW how to hype. Holy. Shit.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      And here I am, still trying to motivate myself to start recapping phase 2 

  11. While I'm past the fase of pointing fingers at Iizuka, I still think it would be better if they really shake things up at Sonic Team or give the Sonic brand to another developer. Major key people left after Generations IIRC, Morio Koshimoto is clearly no one's cup of tea and Iizuka is just holding things together for they could've been worse it seems.
  12. I'd say nostalgia was a big factor for the N.Sane Trilogy because it's the game that reopened that door after the 8 years hiatus after all. But I disagree that nostalgia was ALL these comebacks had going for, these are quality games. Hell, Nitro-Fueled became the definitive way to play CTR, so did THPS 1+2. And they did sold like crazy, especially NST and THPS. I think the situation has more to do with the fact that Crash, Spyro and THPS all belong to the same company that owns Call of Duty, which very few games are able to outsell nowadays =\ It stinks, Activision owning some of my favorite IPs is something I could never fully digest, but we take what we can get, and I'd be lying if I say we didn't got great games despite all their usual shit in the middle. Maaaaaybe there's still hope for more Crash this year since they're doing the 25th anniversary thing, and some """"""insiders"""""" confirmed the existence of Spyro 4, the only one I'm no longer holding any breathe is THPS. A shame tho', I would've bought THPS 3+4 in a heart beat.
  13. If this is the -second- end for Crash and Spyro (I still hold some hope), I can't say I didn't enjoyed these 4 years to the max.

      They could've been better, but they were certainly better than nothing.

      It was fun while it lasted yea. 

    3. Jango

      Jango

      Considering the name of the company who owned the IPs (which I could never digest), I'd say it was above and beyond better than nothing. Activision surely surprised, for good and for bad (of course we as humans always remember the bad first). They got good studios to do these games and gave them almost complete freedom to explore their worlds, characters, lore, but in the end, it's still business as usual. Activision gets a lot of shit, but I think they did a lot of good with Crash, Spyro and THPS despite their usual crap in the middle. It's not like every company isn't like that either. Except Insomniac Games. They're truly GOAT.

  14. Yeah, he confirmed that everyone he's worked with was let go. There's a rumour going on that the art director of Crash 4 left TFB recently. I imagine the skill and style these professionals have are not ideal for something realistic and dull like CoD. I don't blame them for jumping ship when they got the news, their amazing talent would've been wasted in something like CoD. I'm sure as hell they'll find job soon, when you're good, you're good. Still a shame, because these guys nailed Spyro and Crash and I think everyone, even themselves, wanted more. It's been a great 4 years at least.
  15. Everyone's getting their second dose, while I'm here literally a year away from my first x(

      Well, if it makes you feel any better, it'll be sometime before I get my first. Maybe two or more months. They should be giving the jab to my sisters age range right now but she hasn't gotten the call yet.

      My Dad had his second yesterday so at least my most vulnerable family members have had both at the moment.

  16. I'll be down for a REAL Iron Fist if Marvel wants to introduce him in Shang-Chi

      Nast

      after the sequel has perhaps my favorite soundtrack out of any game, but i never thought the game itself was that great (no disrespect to LakeFeperd). so it's mania all the way for me. though i'd be curious to read an argument in favor of ATS

    6. Lord-Dreamerz

      Lord-Dreamerz

      Well ATS did have mostly fully original zone themes & boss fights. So depending on one's tastes that may win a point over Mania which was yet another game with revisited zones & other ideas.

      @Nast

    7. Milo

      Milo

      a fair amount of the bosses and a few zones in mania were new though, but alright

      i think mania has the better gameplay and level design overall, but ats's presentation makes it a really strong competitor

      if either of the two are behind the other, they aren't that far off

    8. BadBehavior

      BadBehavior

      What Dreamerz said. ATS isn't nostalgia pandering so that gets the point for me.

    9. Milo

      Milo

      @BadBehavior mania isn't nostalgia pandering either. :\

      if you want to dock points against mania for being mostly old content that's all fine and dandy; but mania's actually sincere in it being a tribute to the old games. go check out sonic 4 or forces if you want want to slam a sonic game that's purely using nostalgia to bait people into buying the product.

    10. Red

      Red

      ATS for me. Not just for the soundtrack but the story as well. Sonic trying to stop Eggman's weather control station is just nostalgic for me. Plus the Super Sonic finale is more epic. ATS just means a lot to me and I have a lot of nostalgia for it.

  18. So I heard the new MK movie is garbage. Well done, Warner.

    1. pppp

      pppp

      I would say it's decent overall, it's not boring and Kano is prety funny on it, it's the plot decisions and the boring new character that bring it down.

    2. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I've not been paying attention to it but I do get the feeling its had mixed reactions. I haven't seen it but learned about the story changes and OC lead which put me off.

    3. HPX

      HPX

      I think calling it decent is being a bit generous. It's obviously a low budget, low-effort attempt to add content to HBO Max by capitalizing on a brand people know.

      It lacks any confidence or understanding of its source material and the entire film is bafflingly concerned with explaining the supernatural in excruciating detail with awkward additions to established lore, as if it's completely oblivious to the decade+ people have been watching superhero films where special powers are just taken for granted.

      I kind of knew it was dead on arrival as soon as I was aware that they had made the incredible decision to create a new character for the audience surrogate. That kind of cluelessness was the red flag that told me this was gonna be a train wreck. Still though, it's fun to imagine that Cole was someone's Mortal Kombat self-insert OC brought to life. 

  19. Oh man, the vaccination in here just keeps on giving, check it out: the Minister of Health just said today that they're nearly out of doses to send to a lot of states, which means millions of people may not get their second dose in time, not to mention the people who won't even get their first dose to begin with! Such news to start the week.

  20. Nice, apparently I'm only getting my first dose in over a year

    1. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Wait what??? It got pushed back that far!?

    2. Jango

      Jango

      Yup, the ministry of health keeps cutting down the number of doses to be distributed to each state every week, which means less and less people will get it this year. The government negotiated the doses too late, refused all offers from Pfizer back in mid 2020 and it's still pushing the hydroxychloroquine pills to the population. We have the worst possible type of people to deal with a pandemic right now. At least 90 thousand deaths could've been avoided had the president accepted Pfizer's offer last year, but he didn't because this vaccine "could turn people into alligators", according to himself (yes, he ACTUALLY said that).

      Living in Brazil right now is waking up everyday and being further and further from hope.

  21. Too bad he isn't wearing the red suit, but at least he's confirmed to be bald. But where's that big old mustache?
  22. Sonic was the last film I've watched in a movie theater before the pandemic and Sonic 2 could well be the first one after. If the pandemic ever ends in Brazil, that is. I have my doubts.

      Same, then during the lull in September my local cinema in attempts to bring people back would show classic films, I went to see the original Jurassic Park. First time seeing it in 26 years.

      I've never seen to sing this right, I'll keep on tryiiiiiing

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I like Reach for the Stars, including the vocals. But the actual lyrics are a bit too on the nose, repetitive and dry for my tastes. Ohtani wrote the song and the melody, and then Alexander Makhlouf had to come up work lyrics to fit it. His thought prices throughout was firstly just "Sonic can, there are stars in space and the game is called Sonic Colours".

    3. Jango

      Jango

      Tropical Resort should've been the main theme, because it's so good. I like Speak with your Heart too, even if it's corny as hell (but who am I to say, I love Follow Me and We Can hehehe)

  24. That's exactly the thing we were talking about not to do xD Unless you're being sarcastic with this comment :X
