The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

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.
