Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog movie

Am I the only one still jaded enough to refuse to see this on principal? I mean, it even turned out to be a popular movie! We're supposed to be contrarian, guys. Damn sellouts. (The sequels will probably focus more on the Sonic worlds, so they might interest me a bit more) I think you are missing o...

Re: Pop: Super Tails and Super Silver

Almost all Funko figures are horrific. The only exceptions are the ones where they're forced to give the characters more normal eyes, but those are very rare. That's exactly how I feel. I've never understood why they are so popular. They look creepy instead of cute. I seemed to have some weird fals...

Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog movie

Wow great to see J-man back. I also felt the movie was okay. I thought it was going to be a buddy movie with Sonic grafted on for star appeal (much like how Hollywood will drop in A-lists stars in films to boost their appeal). Granted, it did end up being a buddy movie with Sonic grafted on, but the...

Re: Son of Sanshiro

Sonic Forces was a dreadful game, make no mistake. But I actually quite enjoyed it. Unlike Heroes to Unleashed it wasn’t filled with bottomless pits and cheap hits, so it wasn’t frustrating to play. The biggest problem it has is that it’s just a bland rehash of Generations. Many of the same levels a...

I like the classic characters reveal though the pixels and modern art design clashes a bit, but oh well.
It's too bad they didn’t have the budget to redo all the art in pixel form. Although to be honest, I think once I am playing, the art won't be an issue.

Merry Christmas all. What's Ring Fit like? I was a big fan of Wii Fit, but that was mainly for the weigh-in. The actual exercises in Wii Fit were too basic to be of any use for weight loss, even though quite a few reviews were raving about the weight loss potential. Can you really lose weight with R...
