Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

It looks far too awful to be simply boring.

It really doesn't, though.

 

People are making waaaaay too big a mountain out of this molehill.  This isn't going to be the next Mario movie, it doesn't have even a fraction of the personality to be as intensely insane as that glorious trainwreck.

 

Unless there's something genuinely bizarre (and no, Sonic's teeth don't count) that we haven't seen in the trailer... this looks like the most limp film ever made.  Even Jim Carrey looks bored to tears.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I'm definitely in the crowd that thinks this will basically be a mediocre film with zero surprises.  Like, it's either a knockoff of "Race to Witch Mountain" or "Hop", with Jim Carrey in the mix doing whatever he wants.  I'm really guessing that classic Robotnik shot is from the tail end of the thing.

 

Well, Doug obviously never played Sonic Adventure or its ilk.

 

People still watch that guy?

If that were the case, Sonic's arms wouldn't be blue.  You don't mace someone over blue arms and simply walk away from the issue.  BLUE ARMS.  Eh heh.

This video brings up a lot good points. The producers already told us before they were listening and didn't. More importantly, promo images, toys and licensing deals are already locked in. So how the heck is all that going to work if this late in the day they're supposedly changing the design in any meaningful way? Doesn't add up.

Additionally, highly recommend checking out this guy's other videos. A lot of really interesting looks at obscure Sonic history, like an amazingly complex promotion from Italy that used electronic Sonic badges.

It also calls to mind when Megatron's head design was changed for the '07 movie due to dislike from people-- they didn't make it anymore "closer" to the source material or the like, but basically tweaked the details around the existing broad shapes (and the result was an improvement, to be sure).

There's a theory that holds the 'leaks' have not been that at all. Note the design in the style guide we saw about a month ago was accepted much better and in the trailer shots Sonic looks pretty poorly composited. Some are theorising Paramount knows what a dumpster fire they have and so staged all this so they could go with an already planned different design (the one given to license partners) so the public would go see it feeling they'd won one over the man.

Every time there's a Transformers movie we get a toyline based on concept art, because every time as soon as ILM hands Hasbro the designs they swear they're going to be using they immediately race to make as many lateral design changes as they can before time runs out. It very often involves completely redesigned heads. Sometimes tan characters become red and red characters become white. Sometimes Target gets stuck with a whole exclusive toyline revolving around a design that got revised out of existence.

These things happen.

Different scenario. And do you honestly think that toy companies are going to like having merch that looks like a skinny guy smeared in blue body paint if the actual film has a different, better design? The video also points out that a deal has been done with Nike selling Sonic's shoes from this movie. Surely that can't be going anywhere.

Amazingly, I find conspiracy theories about "Paramount knows this design is Terrible The Worst Thing Ever and instead of just not using it they ____ because ____" exactly as compelling here as I did when the theory was that they were trying to hide that Optimus Prime was insufficiently G1.

They probably 'knew' in the sense that artists and other creative influences were loudly protesting the awful designs they were being made to render into CG, but ignored due to directorial insistence.

 

Somewhere on the production team, there's a group of people going 'no hugging duh, idiots' and simultaneously feeling vindicated that they were right and pissed off because now they have the even worse task of fixing it with no budget, no time and no reshoots, deep down known that there's nothing that they can do that will really 'fix' the doomed production.

Personally the plot leak makes me think the movie will be trash. It's very generic and all the iconic elements have been watered down so they can do cheap location shooting.

I'm also really not digging the humour. The trailer bit with the bag and the "Actually, I was breastfed..." from another preview...terrible stuff.

This is one big clue as to why it won't be anything like the Mario movie.

 

For whatever issues the Mario movie had, they built extensive sets and put a lot of time and money into realizing the surreal Mushroom kingdom.  They crafted an entire insane alternate reality for the Marios to wander around in.

 

Whereas they're doing exactly the opposite in this case, bringing a surreal Sonic into a perfectly ordinary world.

Something I put into my youtube watch later list, ages ago and I only really thought about it today when I added something I didn't want to add in, a old fan film of a live action Sonic and he looks WAY better than the offical live action one:

 

 

I wonder, how could Paramount get this so wrong if a fan video can get it right years before they likely started production
