    Rebecca Sugar's Steven Universe (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Nah, it definitely isn't ending yet. I'm pretty sure recording session pictures leaked (without any footage) of an alt language dub for season 6 a while back, recent interviews with Zach Callison imply that they are very far ahead of where the current airing is (unsurprisingly), and Matt Burnett recently tweeted that this will be the end of the stuff he knew about the show's plot going forward (but that he could ask them anytime what's going on currently). Most notably is this post from several months ago, accurately relaying many Cartoon Network announcements and renewals, including the movie, saying the end goal of the series was nine seasons (can't wait for that to get dragged out the same way Adventure Time did).
  2. Just remember that gaslighting people who don't agree with you on a children's cartoon is always an option

     

     

    I mean, not a good one, but an option

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    I've completely spoiled myself on just about everything that happens in Super, but otherwise I've been following the Funi dub on Toonami (and watching the DB community lose it's collective shit every time they change a line or add a joke that shouldn't be there).
  4. I was gonna be all excited for Steven coming back but then THIS dropped.

  5. Not really sure why I felt an immense sense of pride typing the phase "tactical whining campaign" earlier today.

    Sonic Live Action Movie "Use the Schwartz"

    I'm not. Besides the fact that I have little hope that this will even be a "so bad it's good" movie, I want to have something good, or nothing at all. I can go to tons of places for ironic enjoyment. I can only go one place for Sonic the hedgehog, and that should be something respectable. EDIT: I dunno if that ghost mystery was ever solved, but he's in this thread.

    Sonic Live Action Movie "Use the Schwartz"

    Except A. "enough voices" are hardly ever heard and B. there's absolutely no guarantee they will listen. This fandom has been screeching at Sonic Team to give them what they want for a decade and a half now, you really think film execs who're only concerned with this crap making money are gonna care? Moreover, the "right direction" was lost the moment they decided to make this a live-action buddy cop film instead of a Sonic movie. Adding cameos of characters from offshoot continuities and obscure classic titles aren't going to save it in the slightest. It'll more likely look like cynical "come see our shitty movie! It has your forgotten 90s characters!" marketing. Our best bet is to ignore this movie and not give a bad product our money. That's what will get them listening, not crying at them over social media. Hell, if you've really been "waiting all this time" for this thing then you deserve better than what this movie is putting out from the very premise. Okay first off, I most certainly would not be screaming that. Second, I would much rather they don't appear and have their images made worse by this film. Let me ask you: is anything terrible really "better than nothing"? Is a bad movie really better than the potential for a good one? Anyone can imagine their perfect Sonic movie, this is taking that away because now "the Sonic movie" is going to refer to a cynical, low-effort production with nothing to do with the franchise. This school of thought is what gets you more seasons of Berserk 2016.

    Sonic Live Action Movie "Use the Schwartz"

    Yeah except I know how this stuff goes down. I've seen this happen over and over and over and over and over. It's a live action adaptation of a video game that has no business being live action. It has no real ties to that game's lore, cast, aesthetic or potentially even personality. These are things we don't need a trailer to know. Even game movies like Ratchet and Clank that do pay attention to these things don't generally turn out as awesome movies. Out of all the video game movies made, I have absolutely zero reason to believe that live action CG Sonic buddy-cop nonsense film is somehow likely in any capacity to be the first one to not be completely stupid and bad. The Mario minions movie is more likely than this, and I don't have very much confidence in that either. Besides not wanting to see characters I like ruined by an obviously bad production that's already been in development hell and changed studios, you're actually not contributing anything. I guarantee, 100% that this will do nothing. It's no different from those "NINTENTO make SOniC adVentuRE THREE where you FUCK AMY" petitions you see. Or maybe I'm just not completely deluded into imbuing my own actions with a false sense of significance. Nothing you want would do anything for SEGA in terms of marketability or profits. They've already compromised what the fans want by making a "Sonic" movie that has decidedly nothing to do with Sonic. Why would they give a flying fuck about what you want? And that's exactly it: they don't! They're not going the "extra mile" because it doesn't benefit them in any way! You are not important to them! None of us are! If we were, they would have crafted a better film from the outset!

    Sonic Live Action Movie "Use the Schwartz"

    That's a massive misunderstanding about what the majority of Sonic fans want if I ever saw one. The best "fanservice" this thing can give any of us is being good, and I guarantee it's already failed at that. Getting a cameo appearance of now-dead comic characters does nothing for me or most of the fandom when the movie itself is a pile of shit. That's why nobody was impressed by the Sea Fox in Shattered Crystal, because that game is boring as hell. Moreover, reposting stolen art to twitter with heavyhanded "WHY DON'T YOU CARE ABOUT MEEEEE" text pasted over it as some sort of tactical whining campaign is no way to affect the film, and frankly I doubt there's really anything we can do in that regard.

  13. Not buying that new Pokemon game. I'm sure it's fine, but from my perspective it feels...disingenuous? Like if you wanna make a casual version of a game that's style over substance that's fine, but it basically seems like an upscaled 3DS game.

      I'm finding it way better than every main series 3DS game they put out. Its so fun.

      SM was a step in the right direction. Let's Go feels like falling down a flight of stairs in comparison.

      Wouldn’t it be funny if the mainline game next year people ended up saying was worse than let’s go, or it paled in sales compared to it, so they just make let’s go styled games from then on?
