  1. Here's some exclusive new gameplay footage from IGN involving a pirate-themed level:
  2. The mystery Lombax girl is confirmed to be a playable character. Not all that surprising, but...
  3. I thought for sure that new Spider-Man game was gonna be it from Insomniac, as far as the PS5 announcements were concerned. I'm happy to know it was a one-two punch of stuff I've been looking forward to from them. With all the crazy rift-hopping hijinks our duo is up to here, the possibilities are endless for what we might see. That new Lombax girl in particular has my interest.
  4. Insomniac rules, man-- working on this and a new Ratchet & Clank (but that's for another topic). Friggin' awesome, all of them. Can't wait to see what new web-swinging journey Miles is going to go on.
  5. Honestly, I liked the world of Boom. It seemed like a very adventure-friendly place with all matter of new things to discover and interesting places to explore. The existence of the Ancients and the things they left behind was a big part of that, even in the TV show (sometimes). Speaking of, I absolutely loved the cartoon's sense of humor. The onslaught of meta-jokes had me laughing pretty hard, the references to Sonic history were nice, and the writing was (almost) always clever and enjoyable. It was good seeing the characters interact amongst each other, have fun off the clock, and occasionally drive each other nuts, but ultimately come together and save the day as a tight-knit team of friends who consider themselves a family. Also, despite them being kind of limited, I did enjoy a few of the show's action scenes (especially in season 2, where they upped their game) and appreciated that they were fine with making the whole thing an action-sitcom, which I don't think there are too many of, animated or otherwise. Plus, I enjoyed when they cranked up the continuity a bit in season 2. It kind of felt like the world was advancing in small ways, despite almost none of the episodes directly following from the other. Call-backs and nods to past episodes always felt good to see as someone who watched the show from the very beginning. What makes me sad is we won't see any of the stuff introduced in or moved to the show in season 2 get really put through its paces in a third season (D-Fekt going neutral, Roboken being a regular location, Team Cybonic, etc.). So much potential, so many more awesome moments, so many more gutbusting jokes and fun adventures that we'll never get to experience. I just wish things had gone better for the Boom brand in general and this show had gotten the treatment I feel it deserved. Let me help you out with that. The episode's titled "Mech Suits Me", and it is indeed from season 2. In relation to this, I wanted to see more out of Sonic's Mech Suit, in particular. For crying out loud, the thing was friggin' cool to see in action, and it only got any real use in two episodes! Two!
  6. I'm pretty sure I'd need a magnifying glass to see the screen on this thing if it's really this small. Jokes aside, part of me doesn't think this is what's being teased in the Famitsu issue. It's only the 3rd in Japan.
  7. This news was inevitable. Can't wait to see what the crew has up their sleeves for this one.
  8. That sucks, but like you said, the filmmakers might have their reasons. But come on-- the movie's raked in the dough, and a lot of people enjoyed it. That's perfect reason for a sequel, which will be announced in time. They have to have some ideas in mind for how it'll pan out, at least.
  9. So, I finally saw the movie now that it's out on digital. It was great, from the writing to the performances. Here's my thoughts. Overall, I am immensely glad that everything worked out in the end, and I'm sure many fans will love this movie for years to come and that it'll serve as a great entry point for new fans. I appreciate that many of the people working on the film are long-time fans of Sonic themselves, and I hope the inevitable sequel is just as good, if not better. As a fellow Sonic fan, it's a wonderful thing to know they got his first foray on the big screen right.
  10. Speaking of DOOM Eternal, been playing on and off since it got released. It's damn good, it's addicting (the urge to go back to playing it is in the back of my head right now), and thankfully, it runs on my PC rig made from dated, but fairly recent parts. I knew id wouldn't disappoint.

  11. So, Bethesda allowed quite a few YouTubers/game websites to play DOOM Eternal last month. All of their opinions were highly positive. As for the here and now, IGN is covering the game as an IGN First title, meaning they'll be making new videos about it all month. Here's their first two videos (don't watch the first if you don't want spoilers):
  12. Been following that artist for some time. I'm happy he got an opportunity like this.
  13. I mean, the song's passable. I don't hate it. Maybe too subdued for Sonic, but otherwise fine. Also, tickets for the movie are now on sale.
  14. Been awhile, but they finally got issue #5 out, and with it, the Sonic 1 arc comes to an end.
  15. ...I'm just gonna say I'm happy for the people who wanted Byleth in and leave it at that.

      You just made those people up and you know it.

  16. Bust out your Hell energy sword. The new DOOM Eternal trailer is here.
  17. The original release date was May 15th.
  18. welp Honestly, I can't help but feel disappointed.
  19. Can't say I've looked into that, so I have no clue.
  20. Apparently, there are some new developments on a possible second season in the pipeline: In this article about the toys being discontinued (not a good sign, that), Brian says "it's neither good nor bad news... just interesting news."
  21. So, about that status update I made for Project Stamina-- the same YouTuber who made the video I linked in that update got to play the very early pre-alpha, and he rather liked it. Here are his impressions: 

    I think Gigantic's successor might have a bright future.

  22. You know that Gigantic game I made a topic about awhile ago? Sadly, as of July 2018, it's gone forever, but its essence lives on in Project Stamina (not the final title), a spiritual successor being developed by fans (just a note-- footage in this video is out of date):

    If you loved playing Gigantic, found out about it after it shut down and lament the fact that you missed your chance to experience it, or have no idea what it was but are interested in Project Stamina anyway, consider showing it your support by spreading the word and throwing a few dollars a month to its Patreon page, if you really want to. I'll probably make an actual topic once the game's real name is revealed.

    Poor, sweet, common-sense-lacking Cammie. Hopefully, those second-degree burns are worth it.
