I can't put my finger on why, but the Canto Bight stuff felt to me like it was a subplot from a late season of a prestige show that's sputtering out.

The Monster Hunter movie is an isekai. The first photos they released are real misleading. They said that modern military guns and poo poo won't work on the monsters and they'll have to hunt them in the traditional MonHun style. Which seems fine. Monster Hunter was never known for its story.

Back when ThinkGeek was a website with useful niche things, they sold 2D glasses. As in, glasses you'd wear to a 3D movie that converts the picture to 2D. Seems like a godsend for people with vision problems and anyone who just hates 3D.

Silver lining. They keep delaying for another 10 years and they can do appropriately aged Nathan Drake with Tom Holland.

The one major common premise among Mario games is the damsel-in-distress mission Mario is on to save the Princess and they should probably not do that. What might be tough, but really fun if they could pull it off, would be incorporating not just the classic Mario Bros.-style games but stuff like Dr. Mario, Mario Kart, Luigi's Mansion, etc.

Super Mario 3D World did away with that and let Peach be one of the playable characters.

But then they went right back to it in Super Mario Odyssey. At least Peach got a fun vacation in the post game.

Beast Wars was actually interested in telling a story beyond being a toy commercial. The CG animation is crude as hell by today's standards, but the medium was new and they were pushing boundaries (Mainframe was the studio behind the Money For Nothing video.) Unlike G1 Transformers, which looked cheap because it was a toy commercial for idiot 80s kids trained to watch toy commercials.

What I'm saying is, make a Beast Wars movie. No human characters.

You might be thinking of Ken Penders. I'm not sure if he was a fundie. He is a weird dude with lots of problems, especially with women, but I don't think he stuck weird religious stuff in the Sonic comic.

Cybershell did a great video on the Sonic comic and Penders's weirdness back when Archie cancelled it.

My favorite was the TV show Monk, and how each season the show wanted to do an ep on a cruise ship. Cruise ship lines were thrilled with the idea at first, but then began requests about toning down how the cruise ship was viewed through Monk's OCD, to eventually asking "Does there have to be a crime aboard the ship?"

Fun fact a true crime author/researcher told me once. The best place to get away with murder is a cruise ship.

To be fair, there were some games with unskippable cutscenes to hide loading, or in FFX's case, to keep the game from crashing.

Detective No. 27
Jun 7, 2006



Yeah. They couldn't even fix it in the HD versions. The game is basically put together with gum and popsicle sticks.

The reason why the English voice acting is because they had to dub it exactly to the same amount of time the Japanese dub had, not a second shorter or longer, because it would also crash. The voice acting was noticably better whenever someone was speaking off screen or if their lips weren't on screen. Auron's VA job being the overall beat because of this.
