Personally, I liked Amy messing up her make-up and Sticks eating the seat cushion.

I kind of wish I watched the Simpsons tonight now.

Also, I’m surprised we’ve moved past the point where anime reference = DBZ and Pokemon.

elyzahere I asked Mike Pollock (Eggman) himself and here is your answer ^^

Technically this is inaccurate. 12-6am and 8-11:30pm is Adult Swim time and 11:30pm-Sunday 6am is Toonami time.

So unless Sonic Boom is suddenly going to be an Adult Swim show instead of Cartoon Network, it will be airing somewhere between 6am-8pm

ok guys, garnet is unquestionably the strongest gem, plus she also is the only gem to have two gems, what if garnet is a case where two gems fused and lost themselves to the fusion?

Pretty sure Sugar or someone else confirmed that Garnet NOT is a fusion gem.

Dat continuity

This is apparently a screenshot from tonight’s episode? Or maybe it’s not and leaky anons are trolling again. Whatever it is, it’s clearly from an unaired episode. Just look forward to a glowing future.

Alright, I was tolerating Teen Titans Go! to an extent, but things are getting ridiculous now. I understand that we’re in a world filled with technology and little exercise and that CN is trying to promote healthy eating habits, but are the Teen Titans really the people who should be doing that?
No. Characters like those from Adventure Time of The Amazing World of Gumball are more suited for that. Hell, the former has a kingdom made out of candy, and the latter’s main character is named after candy. It would have worked even better than another episode on Mother May-Eye’s pies. Teen Titans was never intended to be targeted only for children like it is now. It was intended for multiple audiences while still being appropriate for younger viewers to enjoy and appreciate being able to see superheroes in action since they were too young to watch PG-13 movies. You practically butchered something that didn’t need to be butchered.
What happened and who in their right mind thought this was a good idea? I’m not even one of the people who hated this from the start. I gave it a chance, and it’s going more downhill from where it was from the start.
Sure, other characters like Conker the Squirrel have taken major turns away from their previous work, but that’s different. Conker was already one of many cutesy animal mascots from the same company, and they thought some change would be nice, and we now have one of the best games in terms of humor and gameplay.
Mickey Mouse, has had several outings of several kinds, but they all relate to his adventurous or mischievous nature, or his willingness to try new things. One of the most drastic examples of these are probably his appearances in the Epic Mickey and Kingdom Hearts video games.
Even fellow DC Comics character Batman has had several changes. Surprisingly, there are many that hate the Adam West Batman primarily because it was too carefree, and not very serious. Michael Keaton’s incarnation with Tim Burton fixed that while staying true to the comics, and it was done so even more by Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy with Christian Bale, in order to give a more realistic feeling. In other words, there’s something that appeals to all audiences.
You know the saying, “If it isn’t broken, don’t try to fix it.” This is a perfect example. Nothing was wrong with Teen Titans until it came back in 2013. You gave the fans the exact opposite of what they wanted, CN. The only thing that you got right was the original actors reprising their roles. I came to watch an actual superhero show, not a Saturday Night Live mockery of it.

Teen Titans Go doesn’t teach lessons. It tries to make laughs out of whatever plot it can make. In this case, the Titans becoming vegetable cultists.
If you expect an actual superhero show, why are you still watching TTG a year later? CN clearly isn’t regretting TTG since unlike every other DC show (or WB show outside Clarence) in recent memory, TTG gets treated like a CN original with good timeslots for reruns and premieres. It does number one in its timeslots for kids while costing much less than what Young Justice would’ve cost.
No clue when action shows will start getting treated better by CN.

The Atrocity Of Sonic Boom

thenattkidd:

thenattkidd:

Sonic Boom will probably not sell a lot of units of their Wii U and 3DS video game’s, critics will probably give the TV show negative comments and complaints about its structure and content. It’s a side series of Sonic that I hope will fail, everything about it is stupid and very bland. People…

1. Sega is expecting at least Sonic Lost World numbers. That game sold pretty meh for a Sonic game on a Nintendo console (it was closer to what Sonic does on other consoles vs, on Nintendo). But Sega was fine with those numbers. I don’t see the Boom games being as bad as 06 and even that garbage sold decently.

2.The Sonic Boom tv series is actually the part of the franchise people are mostly looking forward to. And if I remember correctly, the tv show is the pillar of the whole thing. Not everyone wants every Sonic show to be Satam and if anything, the more comedy focused 11 minute format will help Boom fit right in on CN. Assuming CN doesn’t give them bad timeslots.

3. Sega has invested pretty heavily into Sonic Boom. They aren’t simply going to drop it in a few months. They already have plans for late 2015 for the show and toyline. Bad reviews for the show and games will not kill Boom. Kids not watching the show and not buying the merchandise is what will kill Boom. And I really doubt kids won’t find Boom unappealing. It can be just like Teen Titans Go and will still find its audience.

Overall, all I can say for you is to look out for Sonic Team’s next Sonic game. Sega did promise regular Sonic will continue as normal.

Video games for the Wii U aren’t selling that grand, in past consoles even some games with the GameCube like Super Smash Bros Melee, Mario Kart Double Dash, etc sold so many copies and such for the GameCube. The GCN was the least highest selling Nintendo console back then, and games for it sold very very well. The WU though… There’s Mario Kart 8, New Super Mario Bros U, and I think Nintendo Land as the console’s highest selling titles. But some of those highest selling video games for the GCN sold more than the highest ones for the Wii U.. Sega’s other Wii U game (Bayonetta 2) sold very very less in Japan, even with the North American release here. It still wasn’t a big sales impact. As much as a Nintendo lover I am and have interest in the Wii U, its not selling too much.

I’ve been seeing complaints about the TV show being ”juvenile” and generic, which I agree from my viewings on some of its scenes. Its always got to be generic content being put into modern shows, and I hate that. CN has enough bland crap and SB is going to be one of them, Teen Titan’s Go has some complaints being unfaithful much to the original show from the 2000’s and being generic. I agree as well from my seeings on some parts of the show, I hate to sound like an old whiner. But that ain’t good for CN, this is just great for Nintendo and Cartoon Network.

Yeah I know they can’t cancel things like that quickly, since they have some products of it on the way. But if it fails badly like what I and other people are saying, then I guess they should stop it in some time. And also mentioning, Sonic Boom feels so much like a cash grab. It seriously feels like that, and again other people states it is something like that. If you think I am just siding with basher’s, you’re wrong. I really do feel these things about Sonic Boom.

But yeah, hopefully the next Sonic The Hedgehog video game will be nice and original to it’s roots.

Yeah, but again they expect at least Sonic Lost World numbers for the Sonic Boom games. Those are below standard Sonic on Nintendo sales, but they are acceptable sales numbers for Sega. Especially when ultimately, they care more about pushing all that other merchandise  and getting decent ratings for the tv show rather than just getting top sales for a Sonic game. Bayonetta was never a hit in Japan (none of Platinum’s games do well in Japan). It’s the rest of the world that determines how successful/terrible Platinum games sale. And we’ve got a week before Bayonetta hits. The Wii U is selling poorly, but that doesn’t mean all games on it fail just cause they sell less than older games.

To be fair, you can describe alot of things as generic. The thing right now is that CN is dominated by 11 minute and episodic series. I don’t think there is a single serial series on CN and all 22 minute shows are rotting away on 6am-7am deathslots. I don’t know if that might change what with CN getting a new president last July, but the fact is the network has a preference towards shows like their top performers (Adventure Time and Regular show). And the people working on these shows have this same preference since they work on prior 11 minute shows (Steven Universe was actually suggested to be a 22 minute show, but the staff preferred the 11 minute format). Truthfully it’s not the worst thing in the world since they always have the option of combining 2 episodes for 22 minutes. But it does bug me that 22 minute shows are nearly dead in animation.

It’s not just a cash grab. It’s an attempt to bring Sonic back to 90s style prominence. They don’t see modern Sonic being able to do the job, so they are attempting a new universe and slightly different characters. I don’t see Boom failing spectacularly. It already has the Sonic fanbase who will eat it up no matter how much it may stink and the show looks appealing enough to a new generation of kids.

I have no clue what Sonic Team will do moving forward other than distinguish itself from it’s western made counterpart. Especially with Sonic Boom releasing in Japan (as Sonic Toon).
