    E-122-Psi got a reaction from Supah Berry for a status update, Is it strange that of all recurring character archetypes, it's not often comic relief   
    Is it strange that of all recurring character archetypes, it's not often comic relief or screw up protagonists that get on my nerves as often as straight men do? I just find myself REALLY averse to characters who are always right, and don't have flaws they have to accept and overcome, especially if they are otherwise too dull, too complacent, too priggish, or just designated the straight man even when they're wrong. Usually the only straight men I like are ones that suffer a healthy number of role reversals. I insist dynamics have an even handedness.
    Antoine doesn't bug me much, but Sally drives me crazy for example, and I always unhealthily savoured those times in The Simpsons where Lisa or Marge screwed up and Homer and Bart were the sane ones. On the other hand maybe I'm just mal chauvinistic.

    E-122-Psi got a reaction from Panda Claus for a status update, Earnest the Panda's recent post about TV show based movies made me realise something   
    Earnest the Panda's recent post about TV show based movies made me realise something about how I rate franchise-based animated films.
    I tend to instinctively perceive a good animated film based on how well it can match the aesthetics of my childhood (which is mostly the 80s/90s Disney/Don Bluth films). Just this dynamism only a movie that calibre can have, much more lavish and expressive animation, usually a story with darker and more suspenseful stakes, and the characters will often be portrayed in a much more emotional and raw manner than usual. It was usually a little uneasy for me to watch due to this upgrade, but I felt the movie succeeded if it made me feel this way.
    The Rugrats and Ducktales Movies always enticed me for this reason for example, while the Recess and Simpsons ones didn't, they just felt like beefed up episodes to me. It isn't just limited to TV series either, sometimes spin offs of higher budget works can do this as well (eg. some of the better Disney sequels like Rescuers Down Under, Bambi II, Pooh's Grand Adventure and The Tigger Movie involve adding this 'dynamism' they had in the 80s/90s).
    It's odd because turning a franchise into a big 'epic' is usually something I'm cynical towards. The nearest to the Sonic franchise taking the 'big damn movie' direction and me appreciating it for example is Sonic 3 and Knuckles compared to the previous games.

    THEORY: SEGA releases the Mega CD/32X Mini, a two-in-one add on that has the better selection of titles from both platforms and maybe the odd combined title, as well as doubling the Mega Drive Mini as a music CD player. That actually....sounds rather tempting.

    Whoa, no one told me the Switch had THIS old gem:
    «video» Yes it's based on the arbitrarily designed PS1/2/DS versions but it's still the old gameplay I remember. I'm almost willing to buy that the Switch is building up a good number of retro titles now.

    While the Travellers Tales games aren't considered top notch, I always had a soft spot for them. It's cool knowing at one point Sonic and Crash were kept on life support by us Brits.

    Okay it's nice we're getting our own Pokemon region, but why exactly a monkey for the grass starter? They're not exactly native around here in the UK. They'd have been better saving Rowlet for this one.

    Looking back I'm impressed to find out Sonic Adventure was the first video game to sport DLC. Too bad it meant the concept was still too primitive at the time to make patches for the game.

    Sand Hill is one of my favorite tracks in Sonic Adventure. Probably an underrated piece of music. A shame it was used in a forgettable mini-stage.

    It's kinda sad how each Sonic Saturn game shown the capacity for a decent proper title. Sonic World shown an intuitive platforming engine, Sonic R shown large fast paced level layouts and juggling multiple playable characters, even 3D Blast shown awesome special stages. You put that stuff all together you might have gotten a workable Sonic platformer game. It's almost a shame Sonic Team and TT didn't collaborate their resources for a project (though that likely would have left Sonic Adventure in an even more unfinished state).

    In hindsight, I find it funny they try to make an exceptional trait out of Knuckles being gullible, when practically every damn version of Sonic likes to use the plot cliche where he is rather easily framed up as a bad guy and EVERYONE falls for it,  with only the odd time the ruse is even convincing. STC, Archie, the Man of the Year short, Boom, X, Sonic Adventure 2, AoSth, they all did it, often more than once. It's nice to know everyone trusts you at the direst of times, huh Sonic? (Except usually Tails, bless his heart.)

    I'm really hoping the SEGA AGES Switch series gets as far as rereleasing a nice chunk of Model 2/Saturn games. They're the height of retro arcade, yet besides the odd PC port, SEGA hardly looks into them. Plus it would be a neat way to vindicate the console.
