Lil devils x:
Days after watching this trailer, I am still so disturbed by that image of Sonic that I cant get the image of his teeth and weird legs out of my head.

Holy shit, that's what it is. That's what's creeping and weirding me out so much. It's those teeth, those human teeth.
Human teeth have no place being in a non-human mouth.

I wondered why I was getting Mouth-of-Sauron vibes from it.

I just realized we're never going to get that Streets of Rage movie, because of this, nor any other Sega IP. FUCK!

CoCage:

I think that's jumping to conclusions.

The movie is almost certainly going to hurt the Sonic brand. I doubt it's going to hurt Sega's brand, because Sega's level of brand power has waxed and waned over time. If the Sonic movie flops, I doubt Sega will do a Nintendo and shut the doors on its other IPs.

The thing stopping a Streets of Rage movie is that SoR is a niche IP that hasn't had an entry since the 90s, and I doubt SoR 4 is going to suddenly ignite the IP.

A Streets of Rage movie would only work if it was a period piece. It has to take place in the 1980s.

Basically it should look like the 1st Ninja Turtles movie.

Interestingly enough, Reddit loves this ... and I don't mean for ironic / meme reasons. They legit adore the design and think it's great, simply because it made that horrific design of Sonic into something really cute, if not more.

Well apart from the lewd version(s) ... that's a different story in itself.

Well. Yes. It is an attractive design. But it's telling that the best anyone has done to Sonic recently was reinventing him as a slutty punk girl.

Honestly these fucks have no shame.

More or less my same idea. Streets of Rage 1 could get away with taking place in 1991 as that's when the game was first released. Now a movie based off of Final Fight would have to take place in 89 for it work.

I think the world would be much better if we all just admitted that we want to fuck catgirls. Or, you know, hedgehog girls, in this case.

Oh the world already admitted it. I saw a fucking Arcade machine in my movie theater with Thicc Girls with Cat Ears on the cover.

PsychedelicDiamond:
Well, fortunately someone has actually fixed Sonic's design. Now this is a movie I'd actually watch.

Bubsy comes to mind.

Sonic's been turned into a punching bag, but at least he's able to stay on his feet long enough to keep coming back for said punching.

Sadly its gonna be Mario's turn once Illumination reveals their Mario movie.

Unless Nintendo will quietly cancels it in response to this movie.

Nah. The live-action movie didn't make Mario a laughing stock. Even if Illumination's movie tanks, it's not going to sink the brand either.

I'm not a Mario fan, but I can't deny that Nintendo has handled him (and its other IPs) with far more care than Sega has for Sonic. Ever since Sonic Heroes, Sonic's been an uneven brand, and has never really found his footing for any length of time. While I haven't played a mainline Mario game since Sunshine, every indication is that the games remain solid, and ergo, the brand is as well.

More like 13.

Sonic only became a punching bag with 06, and from an inability to fully shake off the stigma because of uneven releases that followed. People can retroactively claim that the punching began from day 1, but it's not the case by any means.

In retrospect it's easy to point out that almost all the 3D Sonic games kind of suck, but at the time people thought they were good, especially Sonic Adventure 2. Also Sonic always has to be compared to Mario, and the worst main series Mario title since Super Mario 64 is generally considered to be either Super Mario Sunshine or New Super Mario Bros. 2, and neither of them is considered a bad game, just a lacklustre *Mario* game.

It's easy to do a lot of stuff. Doesn't make the claim true.

I mean, if we're looking at 3D mainline games only, that leaves us with Adventure, Adventure 2, Heroes, Sonic 06, Unleashed, Colours, Generations, Lost World, and Forces. Having played Adventure, Adventure 2, Heroes, 06, Colours, and Generations to completion (or in the case of 06, to the point where I feel I can still appraise it), I can't say any of them "suck" except 06. Heroes is certainly flawed, and none of the others are perfect, but "suck?" No. Not really.

Now of course, that's just one claim against another, but while there's certainly individual Sonic games that are lacklustre, there isn't some arbitrary designation that all the 3D ones are bad. Least not for me.

Anyway, Ahegao Sonic still deserves to be wiped off the face of the Earth.

This.

Off-topic: I realized a long while back that as many as bad adaption games there are, at least we're getting some good ones now and some from the the past. We still have ways to go.

Mortal Kombat
Street Fighter II: The Animated movie
Street Fighter: Assassin Fist
Fatal Fury 1 & 2
Rampage
Detective Pikachu (how I will feel when I see it)
Warcraft
Dead or Alive- It's not that bad. It's just decent.

Also, we got better film adaptions of games unintentionally and not so unintentionally.

Double Impact is a better Double Dragon than the adaption. Though I feel the director or someone on the staff were huge fans of the games.

The Purge movies and Rob Zombie's 31 are just Manhunt.

Ninja Assassin is just Ninja Gaiden.

Captain America Winter Soldier is a Metal Gear Solid movie.

Death Race (2008) is Twisted Metal.

Overlord is Castle Wolfenstein and COD zombies.

Feel free to find or add your own gals and guys.

Been saying it for ages, there's no shortage of "decent" VG-movies. Looking at the above list, I'll second MK, Detective Pikachu, and Warcraft. Now, none of these are "good" (to me), but "decent?" Yeah, sure. And if we're adding "decent" VG-based movies, I can add Prince of Persia and the original Resident Evil. That's not even counting direct to DVD stuff or spinoff media/DVD tie-ins.

I dunno. Like, maybe my standards are low. I certainly really enjoyed Double Dragon and Super Mario as a kid (I won't say they're "decent" now as it's been at least two decades since I saw either of them), but there's certainly no shortage of VG-based movies I enjoy.

Event Horizon = Doom?

Yeah, sorry. I can certainly think of films that take inspiration from games (Tron, Wreck-it Ralph, the second Jumanji, etc.), but not so many that fit "accidental adaptation."

Yep on the Event Horizon and Doom. Some 40K fans consider Event Horizon an unofficial prequel to Warhammer.

Scott Pilgrim is a bit like a more light-hearted version of No More Heroes.

Shadbase is an interesting lad. His artwork is pretty vile, quality is nice but the context / subject is very taboo. However, in real life the guy is actually very humble and civil, even going so far as to help those who're down.

Now is he an overall good person? Who knows, but his answers / tweets / responses differ from how we portray his artwork and the recent Sonic submissions he's giving out feels like satire / parodies rather than what you'd expect from him.

One of my cats is a ragdoll, best cats ever. I would never let a ragdoll outside unattended though, I worry their defense mechanism to flop would get them killed. They are very playful, loving cats towards humans, though my ragdoll is the one who steals all the cat toys and sits on them and hides them so the other cats can't play with them. He has a tendency to pile things up and hide them and if you find his stash, he moves it. When I was having all the throw rugs cleaned and discovered his stash hidden under one of the rugs, he carried his loot to the bathtub and piled it up in there instead. I also have to watch him around lego, he will steal all the minifigures heads and hide those as well.

So...is that cat in your profile one of your cats? I'm assuming the horns are actually meant to be hidden until our feline friends reveal themselves to be the viscious killers they actually are, and return to their place of worship as it once was in Egypt of old. 0_0

LOL no, that is not my cat. I used to have a really scary demon cat shooting death rays from his eyes as my avatar but people told me it was frightening them so one of my friends sent me this cute one to use so I would not give people nightmares.

Which is basically deviant art crap. It seems shadman erased all his most offensive art cuz he needed ad money.

Yea that was the one that changed from a devil to an angel, aka " The angel of light", but then someone took issue with that one as well and that was when I changed it. I think this is the only avatar I have ever had that did not offend someone. I will have to go rummage through old hard drive save files in storage to find my "Scoobie the devil cat" with death rays though since it has been so long.

I like to see this devil cat shooting death rays. And you should never really change your avatar just cuz someone gets offended. As long as it's not breaking the rules, then it should be fine.
