    Orbot and Cubot are better choices than Zavok by virtue of being characters

    The "Just Dance" Movie Thread.

    This'll probably be the most popular video game movie in a long time unless it looks exceptionally terrible, lol. The loose premise only helps it. All brand and no baggage to worry about. You could do whatever with the story as long as the pop music and the weird colors are there. Don't have much else to say about it. I'm sure my little cousin will want to see it.
  5. people hate silver because they ship blaze with sonic/amy/themselves and he's taking all the attention

  10. Sonic Team has been working with longer development cycles since the turn of the decade and until very recently charged a $60 premium for their games. I don't want to hear "things cost money" as an excuse anymore. They are professionals. If they are to ask me for that much for the new Sonic game it's not unreasonable for me to make what would grab my attention known in return. They just don't care and see these characters and their fans as disposable, or at the very least not worth indulging beyond the surface level. This isn't surprising because a lot of people feel this way about the extended cast, but can we just cut the bullshit already? You don't need to feign being reasonable about this by saying they might run out of money making Shadow's skating animation. You don't care about them. We all have things we want them to prioritize. It's whatever. All this red tape about sonic team being incompetent and needing to focus on x before my imaginary amount of resources runs out is just a catch-all shut down for anything you feel they shouldn't prioritize. They'd much sooner break bank redoing Sonic's physics for the umpteenth time or doing the complete stylistic and branding overhaul required for a reboot in the first place then they would making some new animations and tweaking some physics on top of that. That whole line of reasoning is a joke to me now unless someone who's actually budgeted a game before chimes in.
  11. Sega/ST has proven that they're likely to release a mediocre product given all the breaks in the world. I hate that that dictates things because it's an excuse to shut down most avenues of discussion. Sonic Unleashed released in 2008. They're not interested in getting the base right no matter what the circumstances are. They have made all the changes that people were sure would suddenly solve everything and nothing has changed because those characters weren't ever actually the problem. The story being an unfocused mess isn't actually down to the number of characters and that holds true to the gameplay as well. Platforming franchises have been able to hit the ground running with more than 2 characters in story roles and plenty of them in gameplay roles. There have been plenty of games from the playstation 2 era onward that balance gameplay and story. It's not a question of whether it can be done. We know it can. Sonic Team can't do it, but what can they do exactly? They pioneered the physics on classic sonic and they cannot reproduce them. They can't even make Generations again without making it worse. Who cares what they can do? Nothing gets done over there with SEGA's godawful management breathing down their neck. No point in going by their parameters. So, no, I don't think this mindset really did help anything at the end of the day. The games's focus stayed split mechanically and the writing didn't get any better, so what was actually solved by taking them out? SEGA just used it as a cheap marketing gimmick to sell Sonic 4. Anyone who liked those characters got screwed and anyone who wanted them gone got duped essentially.
  12. The bestiality complaints will always be overblown because even though Sonic is an animal he is presented as an entirely autonomous and intelligent being. He is for all intents and purposes human and has a back and forth with this girl. It's not actually glorifying bestiality because it doesn't actually resemble such a thing. As far as the narrative goes they are two teenagers who look very different but that's about the extent of it. It's just a poorly written romantic arc with characters that look so comically different from eachother that it's fun to poke at. It's not a moral issue and never was. The bestiality thing is a bad joke that started to take form of a serious argument because Sonic fans.
  13. What's the best Smash game

    1. Nast

      Nast

      super smash flash

      the first one

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I'm gonna get back to on that until the Ultimate hype settles down. 

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Brawl. It just had everything for me.

      Put project M in there and you literally have the perfect Smash game imo.

    4. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      If only it weren't such a pain in the ass to play project m.

    5. Nix

      Ultimate's tough to beat with its wealth of content, but Melee still feels better to play.

      Hard to say, but I'm leaning Melee right now.

    6. Wraith

      Wraith

      It's between Melee it's Ultimate. It's been too long since I've played Melee to say so I'm leaning toward Ultimate

    7. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I can't really say what I would consider the best. I'm just glad Ultimate feels so much better to play compared to 4.

    8. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      What Stricker said. Project M.

      Outside of that, it's Melee and Ultimate. Melee feels better to play but Ultimate is fun in it's own right and absolutely has the best roster.

    10. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I'd say Melee.

      I do like Brawl don't get me wrong but I am disappointed by the lack of content 4 brought and how grinding WoL gets.

      Melee is pretty straight forward and isn't just "fight" the game.

    11. Wraith

      Wraith

      Ultimate has the best Smash mode and that's what matters the most to me. Any Adventure mode the series offered was welcome but got boring far quicker than the main mode.

      answering this question is always weird to me. I don't feel like you could ever come up with a right answer

    13. Speederino

      Speederino

      I'm gonna catch shit for this but uh...3DS 😛

      It had a great Classic mode, Smash Run was fun, there were a good variety of other modes, and it was portable to boot. As someone who isn't all that focused on multiplayer, it's everything I want from Smash.

    14. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      @Speederino Don't feel bad for about liking Smash 3DS. That just means you like the GOOD version of Smash 4.

    15. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      3DS has the only real successor to City Trail mode that we're probably ever going to get so I have to like it.

      Still wish it had made it into the Wii U version or Ultimate. It's ridiculously better than the other two respective modes...

    16. Wraith

      Wraith

      The 3DS version has a lot of perks over the Wii U version but Wii U won out because my 3DS hurt my hands.

    17. Yeow

      Yeow

      Out of the two I've played, Brawl has the better single player campaign (count me among those who love SSE) but Smash 4 wins over everything else.

      I don't have a Switch so I can't say anything about Ultimate (although that seems to on track to have the absolute best gameplay IMO)...

  14. I thought Wave was a great foil to Tails. I like the idea of him being blindsided by someone that undeniably smart being so rude and underhanded. She also flat out cheats on Jet's behalf without him knowing which kinda shows a distrust in Jet's ability to actually do the job vs Tails's confidence in Sonic. Jet and especially Storm are kinda one note though, that's true.
  15. The Rogues are great to me because they're some of the few Sonic protagonists that aren't portrayed as misunderstood to some degree. They're just openly greedy, petty assholes in a way that's funny and fitting of a lighthearted Racing spinoff. I like them. They kind of work how Ian liked to use the Hooligans. I think their designs are really cool too. They stick out without being too much of a deviation. I can see why someone wouldn't though because the sometimes flat writing along with the voice acting will just make them come off as grating without the endearing part for some.
  16. The 5 best superhero movies are prooobably

    Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse
    The Dark Knight
    Logan
    The Incredibles
    Black Panther

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Damn, I still need to watch Logan... I even have the blu-ray from last black Friday.

      I'm just never really in the mood to watch what I suspect to be such a downer film...

      Can't really argue with any movie on this list though.

    2. Marcello

      Marcello

      Spider-Man 2 is better than all of those.

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      Logan is excellent but it's basically one downer scene after another so yeah

      I was torn between Spider-Man 2 and Black Panther so I went with the one that would cause more controversy 

    4. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      maybe im just trippin but i still dont think Black Panther was all that

    5. Wraith

      Wraith

      All I can say is the message spoke to me even if the film has a lot of flaws.

    6. DreamSaturn

      DreamSaturn

      Spider-Man 2 remains my favorite film ever.

    7. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Infinity war is not on this list so it's invalid

    8. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I do have to agree with this list actually, though I still have to see Spiderverse.

      I dunno I can't think of too many good standouts in the genre that isn't a Marvel or a DC film either.

      Oh but The Watchman IS something to be considered at least.

    9. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      ...You know what, I can agree with this

    10. Wraith

      Wraith

      I didn't like the Watchmen film that much but I love the comic.

    11. Yeow

      Yeow

      considering non-MCU/Marvel/DC films, I dunno if Hellboy II: The Golden Army would be considered a superhero film; but if it counts I'd add it to the list

    12. Polkadi~♪

      I’ve watched so many MCU films, that Black Panther didn’t stand out at all.

      I get the cultural significance, and the villian motivation was interesting this time around, but still, it was predictable and therefore boring. The MCU need to step up their game instead of going back to formulas.

      I’d rate Spider-Man 2 higher than Black Panther.

  17. Omega is not only a great idea but also hilarious and everyone who's saying ditch him lacks creativity. Omega being a straight-shooting ball of rage to comical levels contrasts well with Rouge who always has another agenda. Shadow would actually probably find it pretty refreshing how predictable Omega is by comparison. Having a loud distraction that can also take a beating makes sense for characters that lean on stealth, too. He just...wouldn't be the brightest. He's very one track minded in his goals which Shadow...understands, to be frank. He's been there. The whole vengeance thing.
  18. This is kind of a pointless thread. Most Sonic characters are at the very least built to exist and play a role in the story that they debut in so they can't really be described as useless. The themes Sonic Adventure 2 explores cannot be explored with any of the existing characters, so Shadow and Rouge's existence is justified. You can't have Sonic Riders without the Babylon Rogues, even if the Sonic games they aren't in wouldn't be enhanced by their presence. The Modern games have a lot off "loose end" characters like Orbot, Cubot, most of the Deadly Six etc that you can make massive changes to without altering the story, but even in that case you can't outright remove them without replacing them with something else. Orbot and Cubot's botched cleaning job in Sonic Colors leads to the reactor exploding at the end, and the Deadly Six put pressure on the characters that lead them to make mistakes and start arguments despite their lack of a character driven motivation.
  19. let me write a sonic story

    Change a character’s personality

    I like some of the ideas in the modern interpretations of the characters. I actually like that Tails is kind of a nanny who's prone to calling Sonic out on his BS because their relationship would be boring if Tails had basically nothing to teach Sonic in return for basically following him wherever he goes and going by what he wants to do. I like that Sonic is snarky again because he's just way more interesting that way. I love Knuckles as comic relief and I think it's more true to the character than anything. I just don't think a lot of these ideas are done in a way that lands, and I've been over why before. I don't think a massive shift in who the main characters are is needed, they just need to not be so sloppy with the execution.
  21. Wraith

    Change a character’s personality

    Well we're basically on the same page then. He'd definitely cut the shit if, say, Tails was in danger.
  22. Wraith

    Change a character’s personality

    Even if shit got real and Sonic got insecure about how things were going I don't think he'd be the type to show it. I'd probably save the 'serious' side for Sonic for the most urgent of situations. Otherwise it's fun-times.
