  1. Zavok is my new favorite Sonic character

  2. Off to see Spider-Verse again for a future video!

    1. Boomer


      Neat. I've seen it twice so far.

      So far this month I've seen that, Bumblebee, Wreck-It Ralph 2 and I'm watching Mary Poppins Returns tomorrow with my gf.

    2. Moslithe


      I just saw it for the first time, i loved it tho :)  and when i was younger I didnt really like spiderman that much, but now i do so thats something.

    3. Playmaker0122


      Damn good movie, I need a second one!

  3. Ahh, I see /stg/ has now dubbed Kishimoto as the new boogeyman of the franchise.

  5. So, I'm thinking of heading to the movies for MLKJ weekend on Sunday. I'm thinking of either watching Bumblebee, Aquaman, or DBS: Broly. Any suggestions? I have a voucher for a free movie ticket.

    1. Yeow


      I'd vouch for Bumblebee. Not fantastic, but certainly a good movie.

  6. Y'know, I'll be really sad that the current X-Men film series is most likely coming to an end after this year.

    It's been going on for 19 years, far longer than even the MCU (even with fewer films), has more good films (8) than disappointing or flat-out bad ones (3), and has done things I highly doubt the MCU (or the DCEU) will be doing in the near future (R-rated films, not counting the Netflix shows).

  7. I’m far enough into AC Odyssey that I think I can share some thoughts. It’s good, although so far I like Origins better. I’m fine with the push towards RPG mechanics but because every single piece of clothing has stats, there is a lot more micro-managing going on and it makes frequent trips to the blacksmith essential.

    1. dbzfan7


      I don't mind it. Especially since I can make anything look however I want it to anyways. I just love the much more open combat system and movesets. Also the story so far I can relate to more than Origins. Though it's more I'm not a father.

  8. Kmow who may have a pretty cool rogue gallery


    Granted, most of them are dead and those who aren't Kirby made into either friends or rivals but yeah

    1. Dejimon11


      It's kinda hard to care about that because like sonic it's either they're dead or they comeback just to be friends with him.

    just.. GODDAMN.

      That's freakin' awesome, too!

  10. Welp, I guess I could get to work on Project Hedgehog concepts.

    Any ideas?

  11. This would've very nice to see; it looked like we'd be getting Disney's Lego Dimension with this. We could've seen more of what WiR2 had showcased with having all of the IPs interacting with one another even its only Aladdin and Yoda that really talk to each other.

    Alas, we all know that the novelty of things like that wasn't gonna last that long.

    1. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      That would have looked pretty interesting to play and probably had it been finished, might have been one of the best of the series gameplay wise.

      Shame that United Front Games went under, really did like Sleeping Dogs from them. It seems that when Disney pulled out game publishing, they really did wreck or made their lives rocky for various game companies (Black Rock who were going to do Split/Second Season 2 closed down, Avalanche as in the US one not the Just Cause one had to be bought by their rival WB with a smaller team but at least still do what they do, Heavy Iron Studios only did two small scale things since, Studio Gobo is a small studio who does outsourced work anyway but would have got a Moana level, Ninja Theory had to do a smaller budget game that thankfully took off then bought by Microsoft and we all know what happened to Sumo Digital).

  12. New Spider-Man is just....off to me. Probably because Tom Spidey has it pretty good. Peter is someone who's life is a conflicting mess. He's poor, he has to make tough decisions, his normal life suffers because he's Spider-Man. Stuff like that.

    Peter's life is nothing but a bunch of struggles and doing the right thing. Tom Spidey is well taken care of, has friends in very high places, and his normal life doesn't seem to have any problems. He has pretty much balanced himself just fine.

    When I say Tom Spidey I am not saying anything about the actor, but the character/writing for him. This Spidey is really missing a big part of the character.

    1. Speederino


      I'm with ya. It also doesn't help that his motivation as Spider-Man has essentially just been "I need to impress Tony Stark so I can be an Avenger full-time." I know he breaks out of that mentality by the end of Homecoming, but I don't think that should have taken an entire movie.

      And I get they *really* don't want to tread old ground, but the lack of any Uncle Ben whatsoever just makes things feel muddier than they should.

    2. Wraith


      Loss defines Spider-Man so him being essentially in a padded room with all the rich, powerful adults looking after him and defining his character doesn't work. 

      They wanted to be different, and a lot of the differences like taking him to places outside of new york and his new, hilarious circle of friends are welcome! They just drifted too far from the core. Spider-Verse is making this more apparent for a lot of people and I'm glad.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer



      I mean, that's kind of the point. Civil War establishes his motivation is very similar to what his standard motivation is, and implies he learned it the same harsh way. When Tony enters the scene, he quickly begins to get narrow-sighted and forgets what makes him Spider-Man, relying too much on Stark Tech, and doing everything in his power to try impress Tony.

      There's still times where his nature comes through still, the scene with him leaving the party is a key one because he has to actively make himself look like a liar in front of everyone, and validate Flash's bullying of him too which leads to him getting the entire school to chant Penis Parker later. But other than that, he does spend a lot of it trying to impress Tony, because in his eyes - he's beyond it all and Avengers material. In the words of Spider-Verse, he stopped thinking about trying to save one person and trying to save the world.

      Later, not only is he forced to stop Vulture, but he's forced to make the difficult decision of abandoning Liz and also the fact she has to deal with the consequences of his actions now in stopping her father. The fact that the film ends on a somewhat bitter note of Liz not really accepting his apology and leaving on sour terms just shows how Peter had to make the difficult decision to be a hero, even if it hurts him and someone he was close to. The movie itself is a lot about Peter having to rediscover and accept what made him Spider-Man to begin with, and by the end, he does so, declining Tony's offer so he can work solo as a friendly neighbourhood Spidey.

    4. Speederino


      MCU Peter has SOME personal life grievances, yeah, but nothing on the scale of something like SM2 or Spider-Verse. He isn't even interested in having a personal life, even saying he's gonna quit high school and move in with the Avengers. That just isn't what the character is to me. To me, Peter is a normal dude who desperately wants to keep being a normal dude, despite his responsibility as Spider-Man constantly mucking things up.

      And quickly throwing in a cheap knock-off of "With great power" doesn't mean much without the Uncle Ben context, especially when the next movie makes Stark the father figure and Peter actually has to learn the value of focusing on small-time stuff. That's the sort of lesson that goes hand in hand with watching your Uncle die because of your inaction to stop a burglar. So Homecoming's character arc really does nothing for me, as the end realization feels like something he should have known from square one.

      Lemme put it this way: Homecoming is a good movie on its own terms, but I don't really feel like I'm watching a Spider-Man movie until the very end when Peter has ditched the gadgets and runs out on his girlfriend in order to stop the heist he knows is going down. It takes way too long for his character to reach that point. (You could also argue shirking the triathalon counts, but he never cared about that to begin with and just used it as an excuse to get where Vulture was gonna be)

    5. Maxtiis


      Homecoming adapted Spider-Man #33, yet it lacked much of the weight behind what made that issue so iconic for Spider-Man fans. I think part of the problem is Peter having a comedic friend to bounce off of, rather than letting his own personality show through. He should be fighting crime because of guilt and responsibility, not to impress Iron Man.

    6. Boomer


      Yep this is one of my biggest issues with the MCU's take. Being Spider-Man shouldn't be just fun and games.

      Plus I'm not a fan of how none of the character's development, well, sticks

      He turns down being an Avenger - gets made one in Infinity War.

      Turns down the Iron Spider suit - Gets it in Infinity War

      Learns to be a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man - Goes off to space and then Europe

  13. Hey know what

    On TSR's release 

    We should instead buy ASRT on steam

    That'll show em 

    1. Kiah


      I’d rather buy Sonic & All-Stars Racing for the 5th time. ASRT is too challenging for my linking and I straight up suck at it. 

    2. Thigolf


      More support for ASRT is always good in my book so I'm not even gonna object to that

    3. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      we finna boutta show em where the money is

    4. Polkadi~♪


      i already have it

      try again




    5. Jango


      Buy EVERY VERSION, even the DS one.

    6. TCB


      I legit want to get the 3ds version not gon lie

    7. Dejimon11


      Or better yet....pre order Crash Team Racing or buy Mario Kart 8 instead.

    8. TCB



      Just get CTRNF 

    9. Thigolf


      What about Nicktoons Racing

  14. The roster was kinda lost from the start when they announced the 15 character count. Put in all the big characters in and people will complain about a boring roster with no surprises, put a lot of bizarre characters in and people wonder where the fuck the core cast is. Now we basically have a mix of both, with people asking where characters like Cream or the Chaotix are, while simultaniously not being surprised with the rest of the cast bar the Chao and maybe Zavok. It's just a lose lose situation.

    1. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      So...basically the standard reactions to any Sonic game?

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      15 characters and 21 tracks is a pretty small game, even more so when the games main hook (teams) seems to make the entire project seem so much smaller in scope than both ASRT and the original ASR. I've got absolutely no idea why SEGA decided to boast about the fact that there were 15 characters. If the races each include 12 characters, then the majority of the cast will be present all the time. It's not impressive.

    3. Operationgamer17


      It feels like people care only about the roster size than the actual characters in the roster sometimes. 

    4. Thigolf


      I mean, the roster size is a deciding factor? Sonic as a franchise has a pretty sizable cast of characters that are beloved within the franchise, so if they have to be left out because the roster is locked to a certain size, the size played a part.

      If Sonic had only five to ten characters with a sizeable fanbase, a fifteen character roster would've been fine, but now, a bunch of characters that I'd consider pretty darn basic standard fair for the franchise just.. aren't there. And there was basically no room for the franchise to spread their wings a little bit and dig out some more obscure characters. The size just wasn't sufficient, and thus, the actual character line-up doesn't seem up to snuff.

  15. Fun fact

    Did you know that holding shift

    while pressing enter
    decreases the spacing to the next line. 

  16. I just realized in the orchestra version of Kairi’s theme, they slipped the Final Fantasy theme in. Holy shit that’s awesome lol

    1. Crow the BOOLET
    2. KHCast


      Yeah I decided I’ll stick around since squares blasting news on their twitter every day. Up until when Japan officially gets the game anyway. Then I gone 

  17. I'll always think LG's "ThinQ" line is the dumbest product name. I actually mocked it early on calling it "thin-cue"...and then I learned that that's how its actually pronounced rather than "think" which makes it even more annoying.

    1. Kiah


      What do you mean it’s not called “thin-cue”? Seriously not the best of ideas there. 

  18. What if Cream's busy usurping the Deadly Six while Zavok's busy driving go-karts?

  19. Playing Sonic Unleashed HD for the first time. I might enjoy it if my muscle memory stops making me press the wrong face button on the Xbox controller.

    1. Ferno


      I got so used to X being the homing attack button in Unleashed that in Generations I ended up messing up a lot at first since they switched it back to A

    2. Zaysho


      That's something I think I'll adjust to, but my main problem right now is that the buttons on Xbox are reversed from Nintendo. Not really a fault of the game, it's just not something I'm used to

    3. Ferno


      Another reason I wish Nintendo adopted the Gamecube layout as the official one moving forward rather than adopting the diamond button layout that Sony and Microsoft use. To this day I have to look down to remember the positions of Nintendo's X and Y buttons on the DS/3DS/Switch

    4. Sean


      I blame other companies for changing it around since Nintendo did it first with the SNES controller.

    5. Ferno


      I didn't really start gaming as a kid until the N64, so I never got to get familiar with the SNES layout at an early age.

  20. The US government  is currently wallowing in its longest shutdown to date, now in it's 25th day and counting.

    May's Brexit deal was just overwhelmingly rejected by MPs by a record margin of 230 votes; 432 against v 202 for. (The last record failure of a vote in UK govt was in 1924...which was lost by 164 votes in comparison).

    Zavok confirmed as being in Eggman's team for TSR is his fourth appearance since his debut in Lost World and apparently the third time he's "teaming up" with the doctor.

    January 2019 is truly one for the history books.

    1. KHCast


      Hey at least for me I’m getting KH3 soon so that’ll keep me distracted from all this 

  21. ZAVOK 
    btw brexit deal dead

  22. I swear, it feels like everyone but Sonic fans know most of the cast are shallow, but fans will swear up and down that they're these deep and multilayered characters out of a Shakespearean novel.

    Like, there's having a favorite and then there's that.

    1. Wraith


      maybe one person implied one character was deeper than we gave credit for today

    2. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      This is a general thing that's happened before 


      Oh, you were talking about me lol. You kind of missed the point. They're both fucking bland and forgettable.

      But we're suddenly treating Cream like she's important...and I'm like "huh"

    3. Diogenes


      i disrobe and immerse myself in the sonic series's writing

      THESE CHARACTERS ARE SO COMPLEX, THE LORE IS SO RICH, i shout, with bone-dry ankles

  23. You know, when you're older, you begin to realise the really horrific ramifications of these toys who are pretty much sentient being forced to live on without their heads.
