General Discussion / Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

It doesn't look like Sonic fans are very happy over this one. It's hard to blame them, with that long line of filth that ran in between Sonic Adventure to Sonic Mania. There's really not been much to cheer for in a long time. Sonic Mania seemed to be a turning point. Sonic Mania was pretty good, and recently Sega punted AT Games from developing their official entry into the retro mini market... Sega fans were starting to be rewarded for their Bostonian like drought. But now we get a trailer to the goofiest CGI Sonic ever is out. This thing is so bad that the net nerds are in a rage! They've made such a stink that the director is promising to change things up.

Changing the character design will be a start, but my gosh there's so many things to pick on. My favorite though is the choice of Gangsta's Paradise accompanying the trailer. Sonic hasn't had street cred since being voiced by Steve Urkel... and crap why didn't Jaleel White reprise his role as Sonic?

Seriously, if you've not seen the sonic trailer do yourself a favor and watch it. If you subscribe to intoxicating substances, partake first. It's amazingly bad. SO bad that I want to own it as is. It'll be in rotation with Garbage Pail Kids and Howard the Duck. Its so bad I think Troma is involved. It's so bad Toxie may be able to help. It's so bad people will go and watch it just to see how bad it is.

Sega has made some boneheaded decisions in the past but how many times does one have to pee on the electric fence before they realize they're putting the M in stupid.

Sonic is an IP just begging to come back. He's edgy, cool, and stupid fast. There's a lot that could be done with the Robotnick /Eggman - Sonic banter, especially with Jim Carey playing Eggman. Think back to the cartoons, Sonic foiling Eggman and giving him crap the whole time... Thrown some charismatic, witty voice actor behind sonic and let him and Carey go to it. Instead the trailer focuses on cringe worthy dialogue and a piss poor character design.

Watch the trailer and join in my ranting...

haha, I stopped beating that dead horse

If there's any one you'd rather try, whether it be campaign or faction let me know, it'll all be shiny and new for me, there may be something you're tired of or wanna try out

Wonder if this will be a thing in 2019?

Is there anything I need to do before we start playing?

Some games have a lengthy intro or character creation period before you can start playing with someone else, I'd hate for that to be the case and spend the first hour(s) making someone wait.

Sorry @mastermario, had some work things pop up, had to cover some shifts, now am having to recruit... I'll not be able to do much until I get a position filled.

my play time will be relegated to the weekends for at least this week and next. Ownership is in town making my work days pretty long.

I'm downloading now,

who else

I used my 20% off gamestop sends out for the Red Dead 2 for ps4 and ebay had a $5.00 incentive (not a birthday thing, just a thing) so I bought a cheap Studio Ghibli movie collection.

My daughter's birthday is 2 days later and spring break for the kids happened on same week so I didn't get or do much. I did crack my last bottle of Blanton's Sunday night in celebration as well.

thanks again for the well-wishes

I completely skipped over it when it was popular and always regretted it. If the opportunity presents itself i'd jump in.

A calliope played at the end of a Sepultura video....

i'm not hopeful, I mean I love handhelds but the psp hurt my hands after any extended play and I never bothered getting a vita. Nintendo for the win

I keep meaning to get it but I've been getting my fill of humiliation from Titan Fall 2 so I've abstained so far

I'd love to see Mega Man Legends come back

I ranted about this before any sort of research and may have to backpedal a bit.

IF it works as advertised it could potentially find its way into my home but I'm really going to miss those physical copies...

Speaking of if... What are the consequences to the hardware market? If I can run whatever off of Google's resources why would I pour thousands in a gaming machine? Why not buy one of those 200 - $300 hp trade-ins off of newegg? Would that then make the price of cheap stuff go up, or the price of high end stuff go down, or both?

As far as devs go, it seems like it'd be easy to develop for as well. I wonder if you'd get to use their resources for developing? It seems unlikely but if so i'm sure that'd bring everyone with any sort of idea and talent to the table.

Recently I started watching someones youtube video which showed a clip of every gamecube game. After watching that I felt that I was asleep during that period of gaming. I saw so many games that I did not know existed that I now want to play.  :o

AND - you weren't way too late.  YOu could've caught up  ;D

I watched google pitch the thing and maybe it's pretty cool... There's so much to talk about, its such a shame we (mostly I) hijacked a retro post to talk (rant) about something up and coming

Still no Warlock... c'mon MCU - One of Stan and Jack's best cosmic super heroes and the face of the Infinity Gauntlet series is still MIA.

Anyway, Movie looks cool, can't wait to see how they get everyone back especially since most of those from early avengers movies are seemingly done. Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man and much of their supporting characters are done with contracts and / or moving on.

I've got 400 down and 35 up and i'll bet my left one it'll still lag... They're never fully prepared for the network traffic, they'll throttle their users (Like when I try to download from Steam) and if this thing catches fire that infuriating Net Neutrality discussion will flare up like a bad case of the herp...

There were MANY good games.  I bought into the Gamecube pretty heavy.

@BLUEVOODU I remember during the EGA days you had fanboyish tendencies! I'm also fairly certain I picked up the phrase "wavebird frisbees" from you

@retro junkie I really think the GCN being released over a year later AND not supporting DVD was why I completely slept through it. It also happen to hit when I was in college, it was difficult enough to afford one game system and beer. After I got out I picked one up, but was way too late.

I was late to the party where the cube was concerned. I had a few games, messed with the ds as a controller stuff, but only really played Mario kart and Mario party with it. I've heard about all the cool games much later and haven't done any catch-up. I was the only Nintendo generation that I practically skipped over.

If gaming goes saas I'll quit.

After running through the campaign I put it down for a bit. I'll be looking to play multiplayer pretty soon

10 is always one of those I've meant to play, I just never found time to. You've definitely given it a higher place in my queue now.

The game is great. The AC130 mission is an absolute blast!

I've got to take the kids to different places and pick them up at different times but I should be able to play early evening or late tonight as well as all of Sunday.

It looks like Sega is flirting with a bigger involvement in hardware. Maybe there's some weight to the Sega / Google / Ubisoft confab on a new console... Here's hoping
