      Funny thing is that if it was loaded and she did fire the trigger, she would get erased from history too...

  2. So which board game would take longer to complete? Jumanji with all the effects that come with it....or Monopoly?

      By its own capitalistic nature, Monopoly is a game that ends relatively fast. It's also why it's very dickish towards players who are unlucky and get the worts properties and/or fall onto penalties squares.

  3. Huh, I suppose on that note, they are potential spirits that could accompany someone like say, Dr. Eggman if he gets in as DLC.
  4. With their decisions of late, I can't help but feel like Sony are making a return trip towards Humble Pie Falls, just like during 7th gen.

      Seems like the case every gen at this point. The winner of the last gen always gets so caught up in their ego, the underdog gets the victory for them to do the same thing. Rinse, repeat.

      Think it will take a while before Sony gets there. They were more humble due to a massive sink hole that was the development and costs of the PS3, it was a case of doing anything to attract the people back considering the popularity of the Wii/DS and even the 360 challenged them before they started to get obsessed over the Kinect. The PS5 (and the PS4) have made profits due to using more PC based hardware with a special something (the RAM on the PS4, SSD drive on the PS5).

      For Sony to be more humble again it would require a big time flop that would have lost them lots of money and a loss of confidence. Also Sony has to be really anti-consumer, we are talking about Xbox One style reveal anti-consumer. The problem is that this time there isn't much of a challenger compared to the past with Microsoft doing just about okay and even buying Bethesda (and to a smaller extent legacy series such as Doom and Wolfenstein that were connected with computers) got complaints from people. It also doesn't help that the Switch is resting on their laurels especially in the Japanese market where Sony is showing less interest, Microsoft doesn't have much of a popularity over there outside of US expats and PC/Mobile gaming is a thing.

  5. I always roll my eyes whenever people try to shout that nobody likes the Zeti and spout hot takes about it being some mystery of SEGA bringing them back.

    It's a tired unfunny joke at best, and downright annoying at mid tier. At its worst, it's just absolutely grating behavior.

      For what they set out to do, I'm glad they tried creating new, comedic villains outside of just Eggman and CO, that aren't just the next big edgelord\monster of the week. One note Bowser clones as they may be, they're arguably more unique they half the other Sonic villians

    5. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      @Supah Berry I do agree that they could've been done better. So why I just ask that they get fleshed out. There's nothing productive really in getting rid of them, despite what some people think out loud.

    6. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I just noticed that you've been speaking your mind on this stuff 

    7. Strong Guy

      Strong Guy

      They're one note villains that completely lack the design appeal that makes most Sonic characters look great.

      Even getting past their generic stereotype personalities, they'd be a lot more liked if they weren't so ugly and actually resembled characters that belong in this series.

    8. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      @Dejimon11 Guess I finally just got fed up with taking it on this site and decided to speak my mind on the repetitive and unfunny behavior. 

    9. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Now @Strong Guyat least just comes in and explains why he doesn't like them. Fine and fair. No need for pointless jokes that go nowhere and no needless dunking on people who like them and argue that they could get better.

      All this sounds you just can't take a joke.

      I will say, Zavok tends to be the one that shows up the most. And as a fan of beefcakes and powerful character archetypes, I have been trying to warm up to him at least. 

    12. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      @Blue Blood Well, I can take a good joke. If it were just jokes that were the problem, then it wouldn't nearly be as annoying.

      Granted, I don't think there's anything wrong with voicing my displeasure.

    13. Jovahexeon The Undyne

      Jovahexeon The Undyne

      And I'll give @Strong Guy this, that his was funny.

    14. dbzfan7

      @Blue Blood Basically. Complaining about complaining is just more complaining. Of course I'll make light of it.

    15. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Nothing wrong with voicing your displeasure. But you're literally just voicing your displeasure with others voicing their displeasure.

    16. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Maybe I'm misinterpreting it but I do notice that you do kinda come off as critical as the people you complain about when it comes to voicing your displeasure with games, shows etc but when it comes to Sonic you do tend to be a bit defensive whenever somebody complains about things.

      I mean do disrespect to you it's just an observation. 

    17. Ryannumber1gamer

      One note as he may be, I really like Zik. I think it's fun having a small old character who's ridiculously quick and nimble, and has random fruit telekinesis. Him and Zavok have an interesting thing going on.

      Zeena too, I wish I could like. I feel like if they found a way to make the whole glamour-obsessed thing more comedic, or added a bit more to her as a character, she'd be more interesting. God knows this series could actually use a proper decent female antagonist. 

      Zavok's pretty good when he gets some proper focus, I like what Bad Guys did with establishing how he's affably evil, and rather clever for a bruiser beast like character, and how despite everything, he holds loyalty to his pack.

      I find myself in the middle because while I don't hate the Zeti, I certainly see why others dislike them. They're villains who almost never get a fair shake and thus never get a chance to shine or develop beyond their plain, core personality traits.

      Lost World's plot is horrendous and has garbage-tier writing, TSR and Forces made a huge mistake bringing back only Zavok and removing a part of what diversifies him by simply turning him into a Eggman flunky.

      Even Ian Flynn's done a disservice to the Zeti for a good while, between having them get brainwashed into Sigma mooks in Worlds Unite, having them appear at the eleventh hour during the Metal Virus arc, and only finally giving Zavok a bit of development in Bad Guys, and even then - he's arguably overusing the Zeti now, given how many appearances they're getting between Issue 25-40 alone.

      I do somewhat understand your sentiment. There's a lot of people who tend to act like the Zeti are just total lost causes and have no chance of ever being good, which I disagree with. I think there's a feasible place to work on them and actually build them up into interesting villains.

      But the problem - and where I can absolutely see where the Zeti's detractors are coming from - is that no one ever actually does build on them. SEGA and Sonic Team are seemingly hell-bent on continually bringing them back time after time, yet they not only don't bother to develop them, but in the case of Zavok in Forces and TSR, they actually degrade him further and make him even more generic of a character, and unlike the other characters in this series, they didn't even have the saving grace of Archie/IDW to give them proper development, because that only began a little while ago.

      They could be good, if they ever interacted with each other in the same way as the Babylon Rouges or the Hooligans, or if their "serious threat" factor was enhanced with less rigid and more serpentine designs like that one IDW cover.

      Chances are they're going to stay the exact same as SEGA reuses them over and over again though, in which case I'd rather they be gone if they don't put any effort into improving them

      Ok so here's my rebuttal. In Forces that wasn't even the real one it was just an illusion and I'd argue that they made everybody a bit more generic even the heroes that felt more like Sonic's cheerleaders. And TSR.....that's literally a racing game that had bad writing with everybody all around. Everything about this games plot and writing was borderline dumb.

      For a start, SEGA's shit writing doesn't justify bringing back a character and degrading them further. Illusion or not, the argument can be made every villain brought back in such a state was far more awful in Forces than their initial appearance.

      As for TSR, that's just a massive disagreement in general because I liked the writing in that game, because it actually had personality and funny characters moments for once in this series. Which makes Zavok's even shittier appearance stick out like a sore thumb even more.

      The point still stands that a character who had a initial appeal that he was a new antagonist to the series, and one that had reason to hate both Sonic and Eggman, and is now suddenly being paired up with Eggman as if he's just another lackey is pathetic, and removes aspects of a character who doesn't have a ton to begin with.  

      Beyond that, nothing you said actively refutes my point. Alright, so Forces and TSR has shit writing in your opinion. Thus it leads to the same issue, SEGA dragging back a character, writing them a little worse each time, making an already not well-established villain even weaker as a result.

      @The Deleter Oh man I never thought of that. Another reason why I can't stand them. They don't even play off each other all that well either. I wouldn't say the Babylon Rogues or Hooligans are great but they at least played off each other better than the Zeti do.

      Though I'm heavily biased against the Zeti as I personally feel no entertainment value in any part of them. That's kinda the worst sin of all. Bad and entertaining can at least give something. Boring and bad offers nothing.

    22. Cuz

      Cuz

      I'll readily admit I'm not keen on the Zeti, but I will give the IDW writers credit where it's due they're going to make them into likeable characters just to spite me at the rate they're going. xD 

      and on top of it all, I do like the *idea* of getting regular villains in this franchise proper, who are independent of the good Doctor. Again that's something I praised Archie for, but the Zeti are dragged hard by the overall tone of the games post-Unleashed just not being my cup of tea.

      Seems to be a running thing of films that star Melissa McCarthy and are directed by her husband.

      Not saying that married couples making a movie is always a bad thing, but it seems to never work out for the specific couple.

  8. Damn shame to hear about DMX's passing. The man left behind an amazing legacy of songs.

      @Strickerx5 So I've heard. Haven't seen it yet.

      I just don't want the show to go out and end on horribly low note like WandaVision did.

      Especially with the relatively good track record the episodes so far have had (despite notable flaws).

    5. The Master

      The Master

      Its not beating WandaVision for me so far but its still good. If it has a Russo like ending, we'll be ok.

  10. I can just imagine poor newcomers to the franchise who were brought in by the remake, watching this and getting tackled by the inevitable mountain of spoilers
  11. Man, I know I'll probably get tackled for this, but Sonic Colors is still a good game and nothing anyone says can change that. Call me naive for liking it all you will.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      i'd say it's a decent game that thanks to sonic team doubling/tripling/quadrupling down on its weaker elements (and also downplaying/throwing out its better elements) for the rest of the decade, makes the game look worse in retrospect. all the things that were cool or tolerable about colors at the time it came out have overrun the franchise to exhaustion in 2021.

    I get the feeling that Capcom know where the money is. That or they took some cues from the Bowsette craze.

    Probably both.

  13. Well, I'm just glad certain folk aren't around these parts anymore to throw shade at people who might think positively of this development.

  14. Definitely could see him doing that given the chance in a direct.
  15. Eh, I don't even really see it as a guarantee that he'd be stoked just because a character goes by a certain name. It's a funny coincidence. Nothing more.
  16. That really has nothing to do with Sora from Kingdom Hearts. By that logic, Sakurai was over the moon to have Cloud on board because he's voiced by some guy named Sakurai.

  18. Dang. If this is true, then that sadly would explain why Sony shuttered Japan Studio the way they did.

    Also, not sure how I feel about Naughty Dog handling the Uncharted these days given their mannerisms.

    And poor Bend Studio are now in fear of getting absorbed, despite their efforts turning a profit with Days Gone.

      If they’re scrapping smaller scale games, then what’s with Sackboy and the like still being made?

      I’m a bit confused here.

    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      If i have to speculate, projects that had been in the making for a bit (meaning cancelling them is less profitable than just releasing them) and/or were ideal to be finished for the launch window of the new console. Now that we're towards the way out from there, they can do this.
      The more this gets unveiled, the more i'm convinced i just have to upgrade my PC and/or get a Series X instead. I would say that i would lose some exclusives, but that's what Youtube is for.

      Sony like to screw over smaller developers these days.

  19. It is way too early to be remaking Last of Us Sony. Also, watch them retool the story to fit the narrative of LoU2. Bleh.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I'm honestly surprised that neither it nor the sequel were announced for PS5 as launch period games already to tell you the truth.

    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      That second speculation though. Does this mean that projects similar to Concrete Genie or the Medievil remake will stop being made or snobbed on the marketing side?

      Remaking TLOU1 of all games is a... choice I guess, but I'm more frustrated at the 2nd part of the tweet. 

      Like, sure, I get why they're doing this from the business standpoint - bigger games make bigger profits. It's just they also think smaller games have no place in this industry, which is such a backward-ass thinking and this, along with no consideration for older stuff, is getting very frustrating. If only there was a proper competitor that'd light the fire under Sony's asses again, but nah, gotta do our own thing, buy publishers for 7 billion dollars, not make any compelling products and also having OS that feels like it's made with scotch tape.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      Well, guess it’s time to ruin the original.

      The more Sony do stuff like this, the more I'm glad that they don't own Crash these days. Imagine if they responded to Crash 4 not selling as big as the N. Sane trilogy did as reason to put the series on ice again.

      I sadly could see them doing that if they're really going to focus only on blockbusters these days. :U
