These people had the chance to show us what Sonic fandom is REALLY about.
And boy did they ever.
The Mario fandom sucks even more.
The Mario fandom is dignified and responsible. They have never done anything this embarrassing, and you know it.
I mean, just look at the end, when Reggie shows up. Notice how mature and professional he looks, particularly when compared to the sea of potheads and fatties that swamped Sonic's birthday party.
That is the face of the Mario brand of the Nintendo Corporation.
Sonic brings nothing but psychos and product placement for pizza rolls.
You said it right there, Nintendo is boring! They're just a bunch of suits reading the Wall Street Journal. Sega has always been the anti-Nintendo, the counter culture.
I'm surprised you praise Reggie considering he's a damn dirty troll.
My stars were for the raw content, this actual video is pretty mediocre. Everything that was added to it detracted from the pure glory of the Sonic 25th anniversary footage.
Sega wasn't the counter-culture. It was the too-cool-for-school culture, the MTV culture, the culture that reveled in willful ignorance and shallow entertainment. You see the results. Nintendo now owns Sega, not the other way around.
The only good thing to come out of Sega is the Sonic Twitter guy who keeps trolling Chrischan.
Sega would be like if Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie teamed up to make games, and Nintendo would be like Twilight Sparkle making games.
Nintendo doesn't own Sega. Sega is it's own company and they're still out there kicking ass.
Fandom itself doesn't suck. Some are better than others and some a few bad apples. The Steven Universe fandom is great. There's a just a few incidents that make it look bad.
No, Rainbow would have made Tomb Raider, seeing as she's obsessed with it. Pinkie, I'm not sure, but the internet seems to agree she'd design FNAF. Sonic would be made by Applebloom, as one of her dumb, failed Cutie Mark projects.
Mario probably would have been made by Twilight, and you know what? That's fine. Every pony has her strength; if you need a pony to beat up a dragon, you call Rainbow Dash. If you need a pony to manage a successful software business, you call Twilight Sparkle.
Fluttershy would obviously make Pokemon, and speaking of that, QUESTION. I got a couple 3D models the other day, and I'm not sure which I should print: a Fluttershy figurine to be painted like a Pokemon trainer, or a Pokeball model to be painted in Fluttershy livery?
Fluttershy wouldn't be into Pokemon. It's pretty much a kiddie version of dogfighting.
It IS kind of like dogfighting. But the kiddieness makes it OK - Flutters would be all about meeting, collecting, and raising animals.
Rainbow would insist on adding the dogfights.
Homer, can you finally come clean and admit that Cena Mark is just your devil's advocate alt?
Not to get involved with EvilHomer and cena_mark's little pretend argument here, but on the subject of Reggie, can anyone explain why he's so popular? To me he's always seemed to be very transparently just some marketing executive with no particular love of video games.
I don't know a ton about Nintendo's business, but I assume Reggie is just there to get Americans to buy Nintendo products, whereas the creative minds behind Nintendo are mostly in Japan. I figure fans like him cause Miyamoto puts him over. In other words, he shows up to conventions, is seen with him, and gets loved by association.
.... in other words, what CM is trying to say is that Reggie is Nintendo's John Cena.
Totino's, of Tim and Eric Fame!
Like this Sonic zone and I'll send you a pizza roll.
Why upload the video to the internet? Surely at some point someone should have noticed this isn't very flattering.
I think it was all a live stream, right?
At least there are Sonic fans left.
Mega Man alienated fans young and old alike long ago. I am convinced Mighty No. 9 tanked simply because 'it was too much like Mega Man'. Which is what Inafune wanted to do on purpose. He seemed to not realize everybody hates Mega Man style gameplay now. C(r)apcom conditioned everybody to become nauseated at the color blue.
It won't stop Capcom from releasing 17 irrelevant Mega Man games this Christmas. The Blue Bomber shambles on like a robot zombie.
Has it really gotten that bad for you guys?
I must admit, I don't know much about the Mega Man fandom. Maybe you could come join the MK fandom instead? We've never given up on our friends and community, no matter how shit the franchise became.
I don't think people hate _good_ Megaman gameplay. I think they hate mediocre attempts to cash in on it or lousy sequels (onwards from X6, etc.) Mighty no. 9 isn't a bad game because it's like Megaman, it's because the levels suck and aren't fun to play, the graphics are ugly, and the bosses are full of cheap moves and their susceptibility to particular weapons isn't as noticeable. I got better Megaman action out of Rosenkreuz Stilette, and those were doujin titles.

The highlight of the convention was a game designed for 22 year old hardware made by people who have little to do with Sega.
Word, Sega really fucked up in not giving the Saturn a proper Sonic title. Sonic R was garbage and had the worst music of any Sonic game.

What I like about the event is how stretched-out it is just to announce licensing deals and a couple of new games. Even if everything ran as scheduled, and even if the topic covered was something other than Sonic, it's hard to talk about Lego and Hello Kitty co-branding while showing an acceptable level of enthusiasm.

Surprised Chris Chan didn't try to drive his car through this.
Sexy Duck Cop
if chrischan went to the gym, this is what he'd work out to
I should have known the guy singing the Sonic Adventure soundtrack looks like that.
