  1. You know, it occurs to me that if Sonic really is my dad, I should probably look more like a blue hedgehog than I do. To be honest, it kind of makes me wonder...

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Well that depends. Which Sonic are we talking about

      I wish Sonic Man was my dad...

      Jim carrey really made eggman come to life in this scene. It was almost scary.

  5. I've been on a Pokemon nostalgia trip the past couple of weeks ironically since Home came out

    Been playing Crystal, Platinum and SoulSilver; I'm actually tempted to try and do a living Pokedex thing but let's see how long that lasts

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I've been playing Crystal for a LP so its kind of interesting to go back

      But damn I'm seeing a ton of flaws with it already

  6. The fact that Ryan Newman walked out of the hospital less than two days after getting T-boned in the Daytona 500 really demonstrates how much more advanced NASCAR's safety regulations have become since the deaths of Earnhardt and Blaise Alexander (from an ARCA race in mid-'01).

    1. E-van

      E-van

      It really is absolutely incredible. I was almost certain he was dead when I saw where and how he got hit but I am so glad he's alright.

  7. Have to admit, the Movie has brought back an interest in this franchise for me again. I know it's temporary but I've been having a lot of fun replaying some Sonic titles 

  8. New Datamines For Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled's Post Grand Prix Content Have Been Discovered! Let's Take A Look At What Was Discovered!

  9. Addition to my last status - the logo is strikingly similar to the logo of Batman Beyond.

  10. Mild sonic movie spoiler

    that "basically I'm gonna have to save your planet" line was pretty much a generic throwaway up-the-stakes trailer line that not only wasn't in the actual film but didn't reflect the actual plot anyway as there was no world saving going on

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Trailers do that a lot. The whole way Sonic says "I have no idea" is not in the movie at all.

  11. A new Batman logo was spotted at WB Games Montreal's offices.

    Something tells me the next Arkham game is getting announced with the PS5 reveal.

    1. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      If it's a PS5 reveal they never should of teased it as early as they did. 

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Yeah I'm still peeved at that tweet they put out, what, 5 months ago at this point? You only pull that shit when you're hours away from an announcement.

      Though with that being said, I do get the hold on a Batman game at this stage. Better for it to come out next year on the newer consoles than be held back by the current ones. It's actually one of the main reasons I'm somewhat not expecting (or really wanting) a Sonic game this year.

      If Arkham Knight is anything to go by, the logo starting to get out to the public does mean that we're close to a reveal of some kind. Remember seeing that logo show up at my Gamestop a day or so before they put up the announcement trailer.

    3. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Would be awesome if it's a PS5 launch title.

      We know the story is (at least in part) regarding the Court of Owls, but a game set in the Batman Beyond universe could have been interesting.

  12. It's weird that Capcom didn't do any DLC for MM11, when 9 and 10 had tons of it. I mean I can appreciate when a game is released as-is and the company decides that it's done with it. But playable Roll/Blues/Bass would have been really fun and helped with replayability I think. Kind of a shame

    1. Sean

      Sean

      They also should have just kept the Omega-Xis buster because that shit's cool as fuck :/ I remember when we saw that and people got excited about other Mega Man series getting similar cameos in MM11, what a disappointment.

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Joke: DMCV Vergil DLC

      Woke: Mega Man 11's Proto Man and Bass DLC

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Wait. There was an Omega-Xis buster???What the heck happened?? Why did Capcom drop the ball yet again????

    4. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      It was a placeholder for Tundra Man's weapon because they were still trying to figure out the design. 

    5. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Wow. Sucks that they took it out. Oy vey. Two steps forward. One step back.

  13. So the last decade was the decade of superhero films?

    So 2020-2040 is the era of good video game movies.

    1. Rusty Spy

      Lets hope not if this is how it's starting

  14. I've been replaying MM11 and it's still pretty fun. My major complaint is that levels go on for too long, I wish it had the checkpoint system of MM8/X4 where getting a game over didn't send you back all the way to the beginning. I also hate this game's fetish for placing insta-death hazards near the end of the level (so dying sends you back like 10 screens away)

    Also, having items not respawn in levels is bullshit. You can't grind for lives and E-tanks in levels, so anyone wanting to play the game like a classic MM title by ignoring the shop is screwed over.

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      You can do it, but it's a major pain. You have to be really good at the game to not use the shop.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      I really like the double gear system; I use it a lot. But I can't imagine how some of this game can be completed without it. I'm sure it's possible but it seems like it'd make it harder than any of the NES Mega Man games after 2 if you tried to. Stuff like Torch Man's firewalls need to fuck off into the ether, and I'm not a fan of the bosses having pinch phases that are extremely hard to react to during your first encounter with them.

    3. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      It's definitely doable. I'm surprised so many people have had issues with Torch Man's stage, as I found it easy to skip past without the Speed Gear. And many of the bosses can be defeated without the gears, you just need to get your timing down (which is actually quite lenient, you just need to not buckle under the stress).

      For first encounters, though? I definitely agree that those sections can be a pain in the ass. And I guess that's what the Speed Gear is for.

    4. Sean

      Sean

      I'm strongly considering doing a gearless (and maybe upgrade-less) run after this, but I suck at classic, and the marathon-length level design is so daunting at times even when buying all the upgrades I can and using gears.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Completely off topic, but speaking of bad marathon design - Dr. Light's challenge from MM11 can fuck right off as well.

    6. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Oh fuck that challenge. It's a new level of horseshit there.

  15. Reaction: Your least favourite character from your favourite non-Sonic series becomes the main character.

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      What if said character is already the main character? DUN DUN DUN.

    2. AlphaRuby

      It'd be like if you said "I love the Spider-Man series, but do you know who I can't stand? THAT BLOODY PRICK PETER PARKER"

  16. Six months later and I still really don't like this Sonic animation

    1. blueblur98

      blueblur98

      his expressions are way too over-exaggerated. it's well animated, especially for one guy, but this kind of animation really does not work for sonic.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah, no. The animation is good technically speaking, but it's not even remotely the style that Sonic has ever tried to be.

      "How many slapstick golden age cartoon gags can I force into 30 seconds?"

      It's not great.

    3. Sean

      Sean

      "WOW BETTER THAN THE GAME DESIGN SEGA HIRE THIS MAN" -Youtube and Twitter comments, probably

    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Not that exactly, but a lot of "LOL THIS MAN FIXED WHAT A WHOLE TEAM OF ANIMATORS COULDN'T LOL" prior to the redesign.

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      His wacky Looney Tunes portrayal just screams of Classic/AOSTH bias.

       

       

      Doesn't help when the guy who made that is a Giant asshole either. I guess he really is John Kricfalusi's spiritual successor: superb art skills, but a total pretentious bigot.

    6. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      The essay video that accompanied it made it kind of insufferable with the "This is what Sonic should be guys" attitude the guy had

       

      Looks like the guy deleted it tho cause I can't find it, so there is that

    7. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Honestly, I really genuinely like it as a fan animation (though idk if the guy who did it is actually a Sonic fan)...I just wouldn't want it to be official.

  17. What do you get when you mix Metal Gear, Harry Potter, and Zootopia together?

    You wish I was joking with this question.

      I don’t care for tower defense games, but this one seems to be the exception for some reason I can’t pin down.

      youtube WILL NOT stop showing me ads for this game

      what do you think i am youtube? an anime tower defense fan?

      Oh really?

      I was shown it once, but first came across by chance. The rare time I appreciate the YouTube Ads for this.

  19. As silly as it is, seeing the proper Eggman logo in the credits of the Sonic movie was one of my favourite things in the whole thing

  20. I've been playing FF7 for the first time and almost immediately I'm left wishing this was some personal childhood staple.  I know a lot of people these days retrospectively put FF6 as the better game, but TBH, 7 just tugs at the emotions more.

  21. Getting ready to see one of the most respected The Beatles cover band playing their first album! (Please Please Me, 1963)

    1. Little T

      Little T

      I misread this as "Getting ready to see one of the most respected bands, The Beatles, playing their first album! (Please Please Me, 1963)"

      I'm so glad you've discovered time travel, good for you XD

    2. Solister

      Solister

      I mean, they really want to give the most realistic experience, so it's not that wrong.

      They are Brazilians and even talk with the public in English!

  22. So, the Sonic movie.

    Not bad. Not too bad!

    There were a few moments that made me roll my eyes, but for a movie that had a premise i was iffy on, it was a pleasant surprise. Very fun.

    1. Soniman

      Soniman

      Better than Citizen Kane?

  23. If they made a Mega Man X9, would they go back to MMX's style, or try to evolve MMX8 with more collectables and the like

    1. Sean

      Sean

      Hopefully will be more like X1/X4 since MM11 didn't continue anything that MM7/8 tried to do.

    2. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Honestly, I wouldn't mind if they retained X/Zero/Axl as all playable, and even possibly the team mechanic, but the big thing I want is just reduce and simplify the collectables.

      I always liked the X series for it's collectables and sense of progression via the upgrades, especially Light Armour. But after X4, it always felt worse and worse. 

      X5 is the last game to really make armour feel decent, and honestly, I didn't like having two armour sets that split the benefits.

      X6's is shit because you need to use the Ultimate Armour, or Black Zero for half a chance.

      X7's glide armour is absolutely terrible.

      and X8's got X5's problem, mixed with Ultimate Armour/Black Zero/White Axl all being unlockable via codes, which is honestly probably a good idea because of how much bullshit X8 has.

      X6-X8 made it worse with too many collectables. Armour, heart tanks, normal tanks, reploids, parts. 

      Just reduce it back down to one set of armour, plus the bonus armour/move/whatever for fulfilling a secret condition that you get in the castle stage, make it so that heart tanks carry between all three characters, and reduce it back to the normal collectables of Armour, heart tanks, and upgrade tanks, and we'd be good imo.

    3. Soniman

      Soniman

      I just want good level design again 

    4. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      They might as well take some cues from MMZ.

      Just build upon whatever feels right for the MMX series, and take notes on what went wrong.

  24. I'm curious - Did anyone else see an advert for Team Sonic Racing in the cinema before the Sonic movie? I don't know if it was just an Odeon thing or not.

     

     

    (The advert seemed to work well though, because all the children in the audience were talking about what consoles it was on and trying to work out if they could have it :P)

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      I saw Sonic at VUE and yeah they played a TSR ad there (was neat that they used Frozen Junkyard as the backing music for it, typically adverts tend to use some royalty-free nonsense)

    2. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      They played it at Cineworld when I went, too.

      @JezMM Yeah, pretty much every TV ad I've seen for TSR (even back when it was relevant) uses Frozen Junkyard as the background music.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I saw it at an Omniplex, and got both an ad for TSR, and an ad for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. Given those were the only game adverts, and were one after another, I'd imagine it's on purpose.

    4. Solister

      Solister

      Then I go on the opposite way and say I recall seeing none.

      I mean, Sonic never had a marketing here so people mostly knew about new releases via fansites and the games in store, with the exception of the Sonic movie which really had a marketing relatable with a major Star Wars release, for example.

      Still, it was possible to see kids reaction, for example, when the 2D animation showed I see someone saying "Look, it's Sonic Mania!", though he might not even know what it actually means for the series (For bringing back a game style we didn't saw since S3&K".
