Re: OH YES Sonic Mania

I actually think it looks real nice not being super hd looking and the sprites look pretty good. Whenever it gets too hd it gets pretty tough on my eyes for me at least. Odin Sphere on ps4 is like this for me. I always end up tearing up from the eye strain even though its such beautiful game. I hop...

I know what you mean. From the beggining of the trailer, based on the cartoony font they used and the crisp Sega logo, I was thinking they were going with a full HD beautifully hand-drawn 2D Sonic game.

Re: RIP Greg Martin. Also Sonic the Screensaver

I was as surprised as you. He was an animator for Hanna Barbera so it seems like a no brainer that his covers for the Flinstones games are so good. I've always noticed most of those covers (especially the cartoon vhs ones) had a similar style, but I thought it was that, a style and not someone's sty...

RIP Greg Martin. Also Sonic the Screensaver

With the passing of Greg Martin, the guy who did the box art for the US versions of the Genesis Sonic games, I caught myself looking at those old wallpapers from that Screensaver that came bundled with Sonic & Knuckles Collection for the PC. There were some art there by him, most of them Genesis and...

My point exactely. These goddamn furries (this sounds kind of racist) make the game look like an Archie fan's fever dream.

The backgrounds are nice though.

Freedom Planet = Sonic + Sparkster + Gunstar Heroes?

Has anyone heard of this? Some guys are making a Sonic-like 2d platformer and kickstarting it. They've released a demo so you can see what it will be like before you put some money into it. I haven't played but the game looks nice in the video. Luckily it will play better than the average Sonic fang...

Re: Urkel to reprise the voice of Sonic in upcoming fan film

I like how none of you guys are explaining why the SatAM cast (and not even the entire cast, just the Freedom Fighters and Uncle Chuck) is automatic poison. SatAM may not have been an exact imitation of the games, but it wasn't a bad show by any stretch of the imagination. I never got why the SatAM...

Re: Not at the London Olympics

When I was a kid I had this idea about Knuckles finding a dormant Megaman in one of his excavations. Good times. I guess if you wait for long then people end up doing stuff you wanted to see.

Now where's that Sonic vs. Aliens comic book?

Re: Urkel to reprise the voice of Sonic in upcoming fan film

Sonic has been limited to fighting only Eggman (Except in the comics.) for a while, I felt like this is limiting how much of the character can be explored in a story. True. Funny how that's something that kind of never bothered me until now. But that's the case with many main videogame characters, ...

Re: Urkel to reprise the voice of Sonic in upcoming fan film

I think a power rangers-style character would actually reflect how ridiculous Eggman is better. A cackling-made Rita Repulsa-type of character would, at the very least, be more fun to watch on screen. Yes, but not for that ridiculously serious take they were aiming for in this. Of all the ridiculou...

I thought it was abysmal.

The guy playing Robotnik was kind of good though. It could've been a lot worse, like a Power Rangers villain, but it didnt.

I finally got around to watch it and I must say I loved it. The cameos were pretty cool but the whole characterization of the game world is what really caught my attention. The way the 8-bit characters moved, the scenery, how every world really looked like a diferent game. It was pretty cool. I've b...

Yeaaah, BCB has been kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. I read it all on one sitting one day and couldn't stop ever since.
