  1. Finally completed Phoenix Wright.

    I wasn't really counting on the last case taking me a week. I can sleep finally.

      I don't think anyone was considering the length of the other cases lol

    Live Action Detective Pikachu Movie (Summer 2019)

    I saw the trailer this morning and was actually pretty impressed with it. I was expecting some Platinum Dunes-scale disaster, but I was rather pleased with how everything looks and feels. The world feels like a Pokémon world. Some of the realistic touches on certain Pokémon look a little jarring (I think Jigglypuff and Psyduck stood out as feeling "off") but generally speaking I think they nailed the look and an appropriate middleground for the featured Pokémon. It's also nice seeing a variety of Pokémon and not just gen one stock or whatever. The humor and the writing also felt more up my alley, and maybe the movie will end up being pretty stupid, but it actually looks quite fun.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Got around to reading the recent issue, I think I'm in the minority where I rather enjoyed issue 10. It's mostly a big running battle, and while maybe the attention could be better split between Sonic and Knuckles fighting Metal and the Resistance taking out the Egg Fleet, I think the issue showed everything it needed to to get the job done. I don't need page after page of Super Neo Metal Sonic bitch slapping Knuckles and Sonic away from the M.E. and saying "try again!" or "so close!" (which worked well enough the one time to get across that quite a bit of time has elapsed). It might have been nice to keep Super Neo around a bit longer, but I don't really have any complaints about Overlord (I kinda figured he'd transform since Metal copying people's data was already established). This is also probably the first issue where I actually got a chuckle out of the theme song callbacks Ian's been jamming in so often in previous issues--most instances felt extremely forced and just didn't belong with the rest of the dialogue, so at least this time it felt appropriate, but the effect is diminished by all the other bad attempts. I can see why other people didn't like this issue if they were into the build-up of the earlier issues and it seems like Ian just took the easy way out, but since I didn't like earlier issues it was nice seeing the team cut loose on the action. This pretty much echoes how I felt about Archie's last year, a series of repetitive two-parters of Sonic and Chip doing the same thing in the main story every issue and then a four parter that gets to the pay off. While some parts of the payoff for "Panic in the Sky" felt unearned due to how Chip was handled throughout most of the Shattered World Crisis, I think "Battle for Angel Island" seems a bit more satisfactory so far since I think I'm getting just about what I thought I would without raising my expectations too much.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    A lot of recent Japanese merchandise has been using the Funimation spellings, to my knowledge. I have some of those WCF figures Banpresto's been doing that I've seen specialty shops import and I see spellings like "Frieza" and "Cooler". It's probably easier to sell and document them in foreign markets.

    Why Shadow isn't playable more often?

    "I see fanart I don't like on Tumblr" is not an argument. Since all you've been doing recently is plug your fanboyism into every conversation you can, I don't see any reason to let this continue. You'll be receiving a strike.
  6. SoA will promote a dead show coming to some streaming platforms but not the current on-going comic book they swear is better than the last on-going comic book they didn't promote.

      Sega disowned IDW the moment Ian said maybe the Freedom Fighters will appear at some point.

    2. Wraith


      SoA will only promote something if they either made it themselves or if it's bad enough that they can put some ironic spin on it to show how funny still liking sonic is

      TBF, SoA wasn't exactly keen on promoting their now-dead show in its second season. It's surprising to hear anything at all about Boom now.

      Does SoA now only promote things after they're dead?

    6. Zaysho


      @Mad Convoy I don't pay much attention to their social media (because I can't stand it) but I thought they were still at least plugging the show in some fashion even when season two was getting screwed over by CN? I'm glad Boom fans have more options to watch the show they like, but it's odd to me there's no effort being put forth for something that's currently out that isn't a game. Most of the promotion I see is basically from people who already work on it or IDW themselves.

      Oh heck yeah,  you've reached THAT point. 

      Funny thing is that it's even happened in real life.....in 2016 of all years!

    Does Alfonzo take his place if Robin is fighting Chrom Also, I think it's cute that Pichu got a new set of hats, like the Team Aqua bandana, since some of his were transferred to Pikachu later on.

    Okay, I want to make it as clear as I can. If you're posting in here just to stir the shit, then stop. I'm being lenient with some of the Shadow memes, but then I see stuff like the Niboc.Rock picture being posted with comments like "shadow fans btfo" (most likely because of similar fanboy whining I've tried to stop) and this thread is heated enough without someone trying to pile on the salt.

    This thread was getting along just fine without this fanboy whining, enough. And I really wanted Shadow.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Still applies. You made it sound like he was being forced to write something he doesn't like, which isn't true.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Who says he's being forced? This is his job, and keeping the broader fanbase in mind is important. If he didn't want to do it he could publish an indie and still enjoy quite a bit of success.

    Professional writer behaves like a professional writer. Ian's always had a good attitude about this sort of thing.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Even when it was kind of slow year one, I thought TMNT was a lot more interesting than Sonic's first year. Better plot and overall pacing to move the story along per issue, with at least one new thing happening to help with that (Sonic's been a little samey for me, but in fairness, TMNT was also supported by its Micro-Series really early on). I feel like we could drop at least three or four issues from this current run and the story would remain intact while moving at a better pace (I'd say mostly #2-4 since I can't remember what happened in what issue after that, other than Metal Sonic in #7). Bums me out that Ian's plotting here hasn't hooked me; it reminds me a little too much of the Archie book's last year (main book anyway) and stuff like "Mega Drive"; we get great characterization, dialogue, and art, but the plot feels repetitive and like it's not really progressing. "Battle for Angel Island" actually seems like it's going to make up for that somewhat, but once this arc ends, I can't see myself keeping up with this book outside of the occasional trade--which might be an overall better format than the monthly.
