Re: Sorry about the downtime

I'm really glad everything's back. I thought this might have actually been the time that the site went permanently down.

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

Yeah, I thought it was a pretty good flick. It also had a really strong opening weekend, and if there isn't a really steep drop-off next week, I will be really pleasantly surprised. My theater was pretty packed on Saturday night, mostly kids and their parents, although there were a few hardcore fans...

Re: Merry Christmas, chucklefucks

Well, this came in a few days late, but Happy New Year. Hope you all have a good 2020.

My haul was thoroughly practical this year, but I have been thinking about getting Ring Fit Adventure with some money that I got. I keep hearing a lot of good things about it.

Re: Mario and Sonic at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Yeah, I get that Sonic doesn't have a lot of 8-bit sprites available, but just pull sprites from / emulate Super Mario World, and you're good to go.

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

I actually... don't think Sonic had a bad portrayal in the trailer. His nose is as distracting as fuck though.

That said, Jim Carrey as Eggman is just not working for me. He seems to be portraying a Jim Carrey bit character, and not really Eggman. He's honestly a bit annoying.

Re: Mario and Sonic at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics

The first winter game was also when they started getting pretty crazy with the Dream Events, which weren't even present in the last installment.

I swore this was an April Fool's joke when I first heard about this.

Re: New major game, old minor lame

Those screenshots look like they include a cyberspace-looking track that looks very similar to Digital Circuit in Shadow . Seeing as the majority of tracks shown off so far are direct homages, I wonder if this was intentional? That's pretty neat, I guess, but I hope the new game after Team Sonic Rac...

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

Sonic's irises and pupils seem way bigger than in that mock-up poster showing him relaxing in a police cruiser. That alone is making his finalized design more unnerving to me.

Re: Sonic in Mario the Fighters

On another note, one unfortunate side effect of Joker being picked as a DLC fighter is that it diminishes any chances for other characters from Sega properties. Not really. Mega Man being in the game didn't prevent Ryu from being in Smash 4 as DLC. Maybe, but we are, in the widest sense, up to thre...

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

I guess if that's the final result, I guess I'm okay with it too. The design does include some elements that I think would be beneficial for a Sonic interacting with live actors / environments, like the quills and the relatively muted colors. But for the love of god, why did they mess with his porpo...

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

Why couldn't they just use a nice 3D model of Sonic's standard design? It always looks so fucking weird when cartoon animals are given quasi-realistic muscles and bulges and whatnot. Honestly, I almost get the impression that they haven't fully revealed this Sonic's face yet because they're hesitant...

The GHZ was the very first forum I had joined online, and the response to my first post was someone calling me a dumb kid because I didn't like Sonic and the Secret Rings being on rails.

As for "limitless energy," well if they're powered by life forces and life is abound, then they are unlimited in their power.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

I was going to make an additional note that, in contrast to Bowser, the Joker, and other iconic villians, that it's surprising how Eggman makes use of no secondary colors, but I think that honestly might be simplifying things a bit much. After all, you can readily contrast Eggman's red to Sonic's bl...

I've noticed that too. I always assumed it was an indirect reference to the fact that Sonic, Tails and Knuckles fit nicely on the primary colors and are, largely, traditionally-heroic protagonists. Whereas the Chaotix don't always neatly fit into the heroic mold (at least in motives and demeanor) an...

TMNT 2(?) is possibly the closest analogue with its prominent CGI abominations Key emphasis on the plural of abomination s here.

Okay, so I just learned that the movie has an estimated budget of $90 million. Apparently Paramount cut that down from $100 million. Is there that much of a demand for Sonic? I guess I wouldn't be too surprised if the foreign box office manages to salvage this thing even if it bombs domestically. Th...

Re: Everybody Super Sonic failing... (Team Sonic Racing)

I kind of like Vector's kart. It has a nice, clunky, Wariomobile kind of feel to it.

But I am kind of disappointed that Blaze isn't driving a hotrod, or any really other sort of vehicle that obviously spouts flames.

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

I love how the plot teaser implies Sonic just has a big stash of rings hidden away for safekeeping somewhere. It's like Sonic's coming after Eggman because he absconded with his gold. The decision to make rings the macguffins could be pretty interesting, though. They have a pretty wide range of uses...

Ben Schwartz to voice Sonic in the new movie. I dunno how I feel about this. Roger Craig Smith is a fine Sonic in small doses, and if nothing else the Sonic Boom show demonstrated that he actually has pretty great range as the character. I just really hope that Schwartz doesn't just reach for his D...

I initially didn't like the way Ray operated, but what he does is so different from anything we've had in a Sonic game before that it legitimately opens up a whole new way to speedrun the game. He's almost semi-situational, though. Stardust Speedway kills the flying squirrel. Mighty I think could ha...
