    haha, I just watched the trailer and I think it looks like the best thing I've seen since the Matthew Broderick Inspector Gadget movie. Someone on 4chan also compared it to the Woody Woodpecker movie, so maybe even Nikumubeki will like it.

    Amazing how even today Sega is trying to catch up to Nintendo.

    so... would it be accurate to say that the movie is one giant advertisement for the plush dolls they're clearly trying to sell, with the CGI rendering of sonic accordingly stylized to look exactly like such dolls?

    It's almost like some exec did a business calculation and put a price tag on Jim Carey vs. the amount of dolls they could sell according to how many parents he'd bring into the theater whose kids are now of doll-consuming age.

    I don't know a thing about Sonic, but while the character looks horrendous, the movie seems like it would be fun to watch once on a lonely evening when you have literally nothing else to watch.

    But really, the character looks like a skinny furry costume based on some alien creature. how on earth is that a hedgehog. why the actual **** did they decide to make spikes out of spikes. that's like giving anime characters anime hair in live action adaptations.

    It's actually really sad when you think about it, because Sonic's whole thing is that he's supposed to be really really fast.

    He was faster with BLAST PROCESSING. Didn't you see the commercial where they represent the Sega with a dragster and the SNES with a dumpy old van?

    A beautiful story of rhetoric for those interested in business strategy. You can learn quite a bit from this.

    Would this explain his human teeth?

    To complete the 90's throwback, Sonic will now be played by Gary Busey in spandex.

    I dunno. Maybe? I assume they must be doing some kind of tongue mocap these days.

    Apparently a few months back Bethesda pushed an update for Fallout 76 which was based on an older version of the client (??) and reintroduced a ton of bugs, including exploits.

    I cannot really fathom how disastrous this game was for them. Or why this project was greenlighted and run the way it was. Seriously, what the hell is going on over there?

    Simple, it's a franchise they can thought they could print money with without too much effort, and there's enough people that do blindly give them money that it works. Seems like every publisher is like that these days.

    So, this seems to be the speculative story as far as I can tell.

    Fallout 4 multiplayer was an idea they had in pre-production. I can't tell when it was cut, but there could have been some work left from Fallout 4 when Fallout 76 was started.

    Bethesda has no experience with online anything, the Creation Engine was not developed for multiplayer, the primary studio in charge of developing 76 was Austin. It seems they were basically handed the source code for the Creation Engine and told "make it work in multiplayer", as Bethesda Maryland is focusing on future projects.

    Bethesda Austin, previously BattleCry Studios, had only developed a single game as far as I can tell before which was scrapped and layoffs occurred. Their next project was updating the Creation Engine. Why such an obviously inexperienced and untested team was handed the keys to such a massive project, we can't say. But they were primarily responsible for every part of 76 which sucks: the netcode and content.

    Near the end of the development cycle they added Bethesda Dallas to the project. Formerly Escalation Studios, they were a mobile-only company up until their participation in the FO76 project.

    So, uhh, basically nobody working on the game had any idea what they were doing. It seems they hacked together ****ty netcode onto Bethesda's solid engine and released some asset flip crap that everybody hates. Given the massive amount of graphical and other glitches, their game devs probably had little contact with Bethesda Maryland.

    IDK what ZeniMax is up to, but if destroying their subsidiary's brand image is what they're trying to do, they're succeeding. Moral of the story: don't hand inexperienced people big projects, and be willing to scrap **** that is obviously going to be a flop.

    Also I have no idea who was in charge of other things like the shop, where they posted e.g. an item at "full price" $24, but it never existed at that actual price and was always "half-priced" to $12. Pretending an item's original sale price is higher than the current sale price, when that was never the case, is illegal in many countries. Bethesda quickly changed it once people complained.

    This is small, but it goes to show the general level of incompetence at whoever in these companies is managing the project. Someone's in over their head, and they probably live in Texas.

    So they are reworking the Sonic model or some ****, but I can't seem to justify why they would even spend the money and effort changing it. I mean the best they can do with this dying/dead IP is to just release the film and be done with it, right? Unless the producers are planning a Sonic Cinematic Universe for people who still view the 90's through rose-tinted glasses (people like me I guess...)

    Suggestion I've frequently heard is that they actually did the movie with a more faithful model, but they made a ghoulish version for early leaks and the trailer so they could respond to "fan feedback". Then the movie comes out with the real model and nobody complains that Jim Carrey didn't put on 300 lbs.

    Almost feigning great incompetence to later better sell the product? Can't think of a precedent example.

    It's called anchoring. Don't think of it like marketing ingenuity, think of it as a negotiation between Paramount and the public over how much incompetence they'll tolerate.

    Weird nightmare based on wonky game physics last night: my favorite drummer was hanging out around a ledge, and wandered a little over the edge. Because the person who had made my dream in JED was sloppy, the surface over the ledge was translucent but also erroneously flagged as walkable, but only for a little ways out, so the throng of people who hanging out near the ledge were suspended in air.

    Unfortunately, my man Gil got a little too comfortable with this, and soon enough plunged to his death. :/ I think I jumped after him, but didn't die. (I just realized: is lucid dreaming just running with cheat codes?)

    So I finished the main story campaign. I actually didn't think it was bad overall. I enjoyed it. Was stuck for awhile battling Hask and his TIE Interceptor until I decided to just keep on him. Game was pretty easy considering it was on the hardest difficulty and usually very pretty to look at. I started the DLC campaign. Don't know if I'll get into the multiplayer or not.

    Oh, still have to point out that I hate the load times. One thing that was cool, and I hoped they'd do, is they have wounded Chewie as the spotlighted character when you open the game right now. I thought that was a nice touch.

    Relevant to the Sonic discussion:

    Been playing a game called Baba is You which I found weirdly engrossing. So a recommendation.
