    These haven't been shared in this topic yet but they totally deserve to be - two stunning sights from last night's final that you wouldn't have seen if you were sat in the stadium:
     

     
    Christ the Redeemer with the brilliant sunlight shining on from behind
     

     
    ...and then lit up in German colours after their triumph over Argentina

    Yeah, I don't think this going to work out.  This topic is pretty much geared towards nothing but bashing the fruits of someone's hard labor, and that's not the kind of thing we'd like to encourage here.  So, I'm going to lock this.  Sorry <3

    I cried at the negativity towards Shrek. As I was swallowing my tears, I felt a warmth surround me....I felt a hand on my shoulder....it was Shrek....Shrek whispered into my ear...."it's all ogre now". Shrek smashes my computer. Shrek leaves through my window.
    Shrek is love.....Shrek is life...

    Yeah but seriously that voice actor isn't very good. There are people on YouTube that can do better Shrek imitations than this.

    It saddens me that Sonic was picked as Vanellope instead of Shadow. How can you ruin this perfect couple?
     

     
     
     
    A-any way
     
    ...what's the deal with making a VLOG for Shrek? Aren't they a bit late for that?  I wonder if they'll acknowledge the memetic popularity of Shrek in some meta way.

    FromASloth got a reaction from Da Blu Hedgie in Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U)   
    This game oddly reminds me of Nicktoons Unite, in reference to it's style of brawling. Considering I had no gameplay issues with that game, hopefully it'll be the same with Sonic Boom.

    What are those, you may ask?
     
    What are those...glorious, glorious things that have just penetrated your ear holes and slithered down into your heart?
     
    My friends, that is beauty.
     
    Genuine, ethereal beauty.
     

     
    So what does that have to do with Sonic, you may ask
     
    Well...
     
    A few months ago, around the time of Boom's initial trailer, I had a dream, a vision if you will. but here's the part that interested me the most, and the main reason why I felt the need to create this topic:
     
    Three months later, and the prophecy is finally fulfilled.
     
    The game I dreamed of was beautiful in an almost ethereal way, much like the two videos I embedded above. Now...we've seen some Sonic games that arguably have atmosphere. Sonic CD, for example, had a great atmosphere in my opinion, and Unleashed was absolutely phenomenal in that regard in its own special way.
     
    But have we ever had anything like...this?
     
    Perhaps a blurry video doesn't quite capture the feeling of actually being in Winter Tundra in Spyro 2, walking around and taking everything in with that glorious music playing. But believe me, it's magical. Few games make me feel the way Spyro 2 does, partially on this account alone. There is a real ethereal beauty to the hub worlds in that game that time and age have not worn away. And yes, I know, I keep using the word "ethereal", because that's exactly what I'm talking about.
     
    Why has Sonic, a series known for its colorful and surreal and beautiful landscapes...never had a moment like this? Something that really makes you want to take in and absorb what you're seeing...hearing...and, perhaps, in an abstract and metaphysical way...feeling?
     
    Sonic games have really become so notoriously bombastic that it's like there's almost never a quiet moment. You can't just stop to smell the flowers because often there's no time, and even more often...no reason. Sonic games are more often than not gorgeous, don't get me wrong, but this is something that's sorely missing. I really want to see at least one area in a Sonic game sometime down the line attempt a real ambience - something like those Spyro 2 hub worlds. Even Spyro 2 wasn't like that all the time. All of the major levels were full of energy and awesomeness...which made those quiet and subdued moments in the hubs feel that much more special.
     
    I don't know, maybe this is just a little thing, but...I feel like I really want something like this out of Sonic. Even if not a whole game, just...parts of it. Or a part, even. The closest thing to this is probably the fan-made Green Hill Paradise, and it gets its feel partially from...the freedom it gives you. I've never been too nitpicky about the exploration in Sonic games (though I certainly appreciate it a lot), but...man...we could really use something like this in a real game, couldn't we?
     
    I dunno, this is just an incoherent rambling I've had in my mind for quite a while now. But what do you guys think? Would this be something to pursue?

    The chase music sounded more Sonic-y, but then it goes right back to generic orchestra afterwards. It's not bad orchestra, just bland.
     
    I do like that your partners actually seems to be useful rather than running around doing essentially nothing.
     
    I do wish the chatter that's just "hey, this thing happened" would stop. Everything else is fine, though.
     
    Luring the giant bots into that toxic waste geyser looked interesting.

    Oh yeah, that chatter is definitely gonna get annoying real fast.
     
    At least Amy and Knuckles sound better here than in the Sega Sonic games of late. Knux doesn't sound like a Dan Green impression and Amy doesn't sound like Minnie Mouse.
