@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:52 AM)

The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

The base designs look great, but the models used for the game and show look weird and stretched out. Kinda sucks they ended up like that.
 
In example, in the concept art Knuckle's head is just a bit wider than the game model which makes it work and not feel "stuck on" like the game model does.


The concept art was what I based that on

 

 

Well, I disagree with that notion.

I thought it was the post-SA crew that everyone disliked. This is Tails, Knuckles, and Amy.

Two of which are playable in Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Well, the link would work if this new forum format wasn't so broken to the point where I can post links without HTML code.

 

And like Database said, it will be a branch off series like the comics and the Sonic cartoons before this.

 

Just click the little chain icon, paste your URL in, and *poof* workable link.

 

http://www.sonicstad...he-old-universe

 

As for that I get the feeling it's more like Star Trek's "We're not replacing the old Universe"  merely making everything canon going forward in that style leaving the old Universe to wither and rot with non-canon novels/comics BUT IT'S STILL THERE YOU GUYS!

 

If this turns out to be popular.

 

If not, than they'll likely cycle back to the designs. Personally I'm fine with the new designs but I've never been a Sonic fan so eh.

I think Luigi is the odd man out in that one. I don't think having different jumping/running physics to Mario or being able to run in the air translates to having a lot of upper body strength.

I think that would only work if he was changed so he used the classic hammer/mallet as a signature weapon.

Mario makes sense as the burly one, but that screws up the cast parallels.

http://www.polygon.c...ave-him-a-scarf

 

If the Big Red Button team is led by an "Uncharted and Jak & Daxter veteran", I'm pretty keen.

 

But, uh:

 

"We were exploring different outfits and we went through a lot of iterations and the scarf was something I've used in the past and it works for me and it works for the character. Really, the history of that comes from the old western days, with John Wayne, and as a kid watching a lot of those westerns, that really stuck with me. And you see the use of the afghan in a lot of action movies because of the soldiers and what's happened with more association with the Middle East. So that DNA made its way into what makes a character action hero nowadays."

 

Ooookay.

 

But seriously, I actually love the weird bandaged post-apocalyptic vibe. So.

Not fond of the blue arms on Sonic now. Especially because Amy's are still peach.

Longer limbs on everyone is kinda off putting, but I guess we went through a similar thing in the jump from Genesis to Adventure era games.

Tails and Amy look great, Knuckles only less so (His head doesn't really fit with that body) I'm trying to figure out the scarf on Sonic tho. Robotnik looks alright, but I really dug his Adventure look more, kinda not digging the asymmetricalness of the new outfit.

Animation in the show looks slick tho, very expressive and good keyframing. Unfortunately, the music in the TV show trailer sounds like the worst of 4Kids re-scoring on their bad dubs.

I can't believe not a single person here has heard of athletic tape...

 

M3Hgdmq.jpg

 

Anyway, I'm liking the look of this, for the most part. Knuckles is the most off-putting, but he's growing on me, though I'll be disappointed if he can't glide any more.

 

My original impression was that maybe this was like game Sonic a few years later-- late teens, early 20s, somewhere thereabouts. Apparently not, but oh well.

 

The episode descriptions sound hilarious, and I can't wait to see that stuff.

 

It reminds me of getting a new Mega Man, except there it's usually a whole other entity, rather than the same character with a new look/setting.

 

Animation doesn't look bad to me, but at the same time, I still remember this crime against humanity.

Where are there episode description?

Anyway, on the tape, it's not that I don't get the logic behind it. I'm just not sure it works for me... At least on Sonic. When I think of Sonic, I think of a character who's essentially a living race car. Sharp, curved lines, sleek, solid colors, and stripes and such. That's why the scruffiness and the tape makes him look... Well, threadbare. On his shoes at least, it also looks really random because... What's the point of putting it over your shoes?

To be honest, Tails, Amy, and Eggman are the strongest, design-wise.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.
