  1. Y'know, after all the crap Sonic's been put through, it would've been nice to see a glimmer of good pop out that doesn't have Mania in its title. Instead we're shovelled the usual godawful Hollywood reimagining so many brands have suffered over the years. Why they didn't play it safe and just make a cartoon is just one of the many conundrums of life, I suppose. Still, it's just not fair the hedgehog has to be put through internet slaughterhouse once again. I could really use another Mania cartoon right about now...

    Yeah, that was pretty expected aside from the Eggman stuff. Afraid to say this all kinda peaked with the Neo reveal. It's a shame, since the basis of this whole saga involving Metal's time as Villain in Chief has oodles of potential. Instead it's all surface level, disinteresting action fuelled, padded out predictability. Really hoping they aim higher next time.
  3. He only came back because the latest patch ruined his cheats. Either that, or he was standing on yet another forlorn hilltop, brooding about all the downer parts in his life.
  4. Oh, god, I know everyone has their time, but damn I really wanted Stan to have some more. 

  5. No idea how to take in Detective Pikachu, save for seeing it as a fever dream, but to me, Ryan Reynolds doesn't really work here.  Just think it's a big miscasting here.  Still, I'm, dare I say, kinda on board with the new designs.  Most land, some don't. 

    I'll see how this develops...

      People just had Danny devito in mind for so long anyone else’s style just comes off weird

  6. If we're really letting Piranha Plant in, then I demand we get our Bullet Bill/Bob'Omb combo. I mean, if you can't get Shadow as an Echo, then you might as well give us something almost as good.
  7. Weirdly, I found the Town reveal to be one of my favourite things about the direct.  Art style looks excellent and I'm really keen to know how GF will keep the town from getting stale.  A feature like that can make, or break it really.

  8. Y'know I don't think I've ever experienced a game like Smash.  The more I play, the more I get used to the controls the more it opens up and grows in overall entertainment.  

  9. So is that boss in the Phobos gameplay Hayden?  Regardless I'm curious as to why Doom Guy's got the Crucible now.

      the three finger dude?

      No, those are Arch-Viles.

      On one hand I don't think it's Hayden because of the fact that Slayer has the Crucible, meaning he probably encountered Hayden and won the fight.

      But on the other hand, I'm not sure if this demon was in classic games or not. Cyberdemon was easily recognizable at the end of Doom 2016 E3 demo. This? Not so sure. His build is somewhat similar to Hayden.

      Granted, I haven't played the classic games, so...

      EDIT: Welp, the answer above shows how little I know about the classic games...

      These guys could resurrect other demons and were a pain in the ass to deal with.

      But they look sick as Hell pun intended.

      Whether he turns demon or not, I hope they don't waste Hayden as an anti-villain.  He had some really good set up in the last one and it'd be a shame for him to wind up as some early boss to kill off.

      For all we know that Crucible thing might've been just for the demo and isn't even ingame.

      Isn't unheard of.

      That did cross my mind.  A weapon like the Crucible feels like a big endgame goody than any early days weapon, so the demo might not tell the whole truth.

  10. Even if this doesn't turn out to be a Alvin/Smurfs joint I really struggle to see this as anything thought provoking, deep, or even particularly good. Casting is the least of my worries (although having Roger would've been nice even if it's for the sake of symmetry), it's everything else that's got me concerned. The fact that it's live-action and not a cartoon, using human characters and seemingly total disconnect with the games brings up a whole lot of red flags for me. I could be wrong, but aside from the sheer curiosity of Jim Carrey as Eggman there's nothing filling me with confidence that this is going to be decent, or a success and to assume so is jumping the gun big time. Especially when it's leaping into a pretty competitive November.
  11. That Comic-con trailer for Infinity Train still has me bummed that it's coming next year and not this year.

    It's like I said. I've come to the point of being happy about this plot finally happening that I don't care if it's execution is a bit off, but...

    Ah, y'know what, screw it. Predictable as this turns of events was, I still found it pretty incredible.

    Hm, seems I'm getting a trade off here. I get what I've been wanting for years, complete with artwork that does it justice (jeez, where did ABT find all that improvement...), but it comes at the cost of seemingly doing little to make it refreshing, interesting, or unpredictable. I don't know, maybe there's actually another couple twists to be seen, but I'm more on the fence about this than I want to be.
  15. Okay, Fantastic Beasts looks a safe bet for me, but seriously I never expected Shazam to be this freaking awesome.  Props to DC for keeping something unsoiled.  Shame Aquaman looks too trashy though.

      Aquaman looks strange to me. There wasn't anything outright that makes it look as bad as most of the DC movies, but it really feels like we've been here  before.

      I think the problem is that it's taking too many pages out of Marvel's book of tricks.  It looks different and yet it feels so by the numbers in execution.
