Russian interference should have been fighting an uphill battle, but as far as I'm concerned we gave them a head start.

@  Shrug : (20 October 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I disagree with Hillary being a good choice to run against Trump. Plenty of mixed feelings about her long before 2016 within our own party. When the DNC has to rig it's own primaries to get their chosen candidate running, maybe you shouldn't expect an easy landslide at the actual election.

@  Pennpenn : (20 October 2018 - 05:20 AM)

It would have also helped if the US was also an actualy democracy where the candidate who gets the most votes wins, but hey.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:42 AM)

You helped destroy western democracy, but hey, at least no-one can accuse you of bias... Oh wait, they did, still do, and are going to keep doing so as long as you report facts.

@  Rycochet : (20 October 2018 - 04:39 AM)

Hillary was a good choice to run against Trump, the big problem was the media crawling all over themselves to try and push the idea of fairness, and threw her under the bus to do so. Any hint of impropriety was treated as being exactly the same as actual proven criminal acts by Trump in order to avoid being seen as biased... and at the end of it all, he turned around and bit them for doing so because that's who he is.

It's the only of the "established" parties (it's almost 40 years old at this point) that has remained true to its principles.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:34 AM)

Meanwhile, some uplifting news from Germany: While our big parties are rapidly losing voters, and our new "we're not really extreme" right-wing party is gaining voters, there is one other party that is scoring massive points, both in polls and the recent Bavarian state election: The Green Party.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:33 AM)

I still think having Hillary run against Drumpf was a bad choice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 October 2018 - 03:32 AM)

Well on the bright side, we know more people voted for HIllary than the cheeto.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:31 AM)

I guess many a prepper might have also voted for the person most likely to bring about the end of society they are waiting for.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2018 - 03:28 AM)

Now let that sink in, and then think about how many people voted for Agent Orange.

Man, watching the original Voltron cartoon for the first time is so weird after having only seen the Netflix reboot.

@  D.M : (19 October 2018 - 09:09 AM)

+They don't really give a crap about God. All their religious talk is just part of the mask. They wanna look like the ideal citizen (what they consider that to be) - the most Christian of all Christians, the most patriotic of all patriots, etc.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 08:13 AM)

That's because she was also greedy, heartless, and despised the poor, which is something the right often loves more than God.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 October 2018 - 07:55 AM)

I find it rather amusing that the party of the Religious Right sees wisdom in a woman who hated the notion of God almost as much as she hated and feared the idea of being part of a family.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:39 AM)

However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

All the people who like Rand should go live in a big underwater city. I cannot foresee anything that could go wrong with such a scenario.

That's one of the things the old cable companies got right: Only one or two options per area. The illusion of choice.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2018 - 04:00 AM)

I mean, white people are calling the cops on black people for random shit lately, it appears.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2018 - 02:49 AM)

It's not that surprising that some people freaked out enough over Youtube being down that they'd call emergency services. I mean, I've heard of at least one instance of someone calling 911 because the restaurant didn't make a cheeseburger to their liking.

Apparently Sega will be using these for the games too, using the upcoming Sonic Boom show to usher them in

 

http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=764618

 

I have to be completely honest, I like them. The worst I can say is that Knuckles design looks like it'd better fit a one episode premise about him getting too buff and reminds me a bit too much of his Babylon rival. But overall I like them. Sonic's design works well given his status as a travelling adventurer.

The only one I hate with a passion is Knuckles.

 

Why, WHY does he need to be so much bigger than the others?  Or why does he need bandages instead of boxing gloves?  It worked perfectly fine up to now.

Long time since I paid attention to anything Sonic related (Sonic 2 probably?), but I like these designs. Game looks fun and hopefully I'll be able to enjoy the show with my daughter.

Someone... really likes random bandages....  Ditch those and I'd like it better.  Sonic seems like he needs a ridiculous PS2 Shinobi scarf.  Boo to blue arms, though.  I don't like a common fan art mistake being codified.

 

Aside from that, I'm okay with it other than Splatterhouse Knuckles there.

 

On the flip side, I really like that Eggman.  A lot.  It's crazy evocative of the Genesis box art.

 

 

The Sonic Team logo is noticeably missing from that game trailer.  Hmm.

I... think I'm going to like this.  The cartoon more than the game.  Assuming they can pull it off, this might be quite a fun little series.  The character designs are different, but not different enough that they aren't recognizable and they suit the characters well enough.  Knux is a bit awkward looking but meh, I can dig it.  And if SEGA can get some good dough out of this, maybe we'll see a renaissance not unlike what Transformers has gone through with the Bay movies.

 

The game looks, well, we'll see.

The only thing I really don't like about Knuckles is feel he's too tall. A full head over sonic feels wrong, Even half head would probably look better, imo.

 

I really like Eggman's design here; also nice that no matter how much the same to change the voice cast; Mike Pollock remains the same. :D

Yeah, that's what  I like best about it. Its like they looked at his modern design and his classic design and decided to merge the two looks. Even if they later discard all the rest, i want them to keep that as Eggman's standard for the future.

The character designs make them look like they're in some kind of Mad Max dystopian desert future.

 

Knuckles just looks naked though. All that empty red space on his huge body. Sucka needs a belt or something.

Aren't Sonic games these days a bit like the Need for Speed games though, quality wise?

 

Some of the games are quite good, others are complete crap?

 

A bit swing and miss it seems.

 

Sonic Transformed are awesome though. :)

I always find the addition of a handkerchief to be kinda dumb. Also those bandages need to go. And Knuckles needs to look a little less stiff.

Otherwise it's fne. The blue arms are a huge plus since the fleshy (?) arms don't make much sense.

Yeah, the blue arms don't bother me either; I know for some sonic purists it does, but for me it's always seemed weird design-wise that his "fur" doesn't cover his arms.
