Paramount Pictures Absolutely Ruins Sonic The Hedgehog

Paramount Pictures recently posted their official trailer of Sonic the Hedgehog on YouTube, which became the top trending video.

A Youtube account by the name of Tenebra asked “is this an out of season April Fools joke?”

Another account by the name of Hubert Konopia said, “Gangsta Paradise, what the hell it’s like matching Imagine Dragons with porn”.

Actor Jim Carrey will star as Doctor Eggman.

The live action adventure comedy has certainly ruffled the feathers of at least some of those who grew up playing the blue hedgehog video game franchise. The main reason for this is because Sonic doesn’t properly resemble the older cartoon version of Sonic’s appearance.

This is how Sonic looked in the 1991 “Sonic the Hedgehog” video game.

IGN reviews editor Tom Marks constructed a comparison between Sonic’s original eye style and the newer, more “realistic” style.

New Sonic has, to name a few differences, human-like teeth, more “realistic” fur, and a more human-like brow bone. The producers reportedly desired a more realistic style to help Sonic, a blue, fast, talking hedgehog, fit in to the real world in the movie.

In an interview with IGN, producer Tim Miller discussed the eye style difference:

“I don’t think SEGA was entirely happy with the eye decision,” said Miller, “but these sorts of things you go, ‘It’s going to look weird if we don’t do this.’ But everything is a discussion, and that’s kind of the goal, which is to only change what’s necessary and stay true to the rest of it.”

Miller, also a producer of Deadpool, also commented on Sonic’s fur that attempts to mimic the real-world animal:

“That was always Stage 1 of adapting it to what the real world is and what a real animal would be like… It would be weird and it would feel like he was running around nude if he was some sort of otter-like thing. It was always, for us, fur, and we never considered anything different. It’s part of what integrates him into the real world and makes him a real creature.”

Producer Neal Moritz, creator of the Fast and Furious franchise, spoke about Sonic’s shoe style in the movie:

“We looked at every different variation of what shoes he’s worn and we’re trying to pay homage to that and also make it current and present day in what we think a Sonic of today would wear.”

A key question from IGN is whether Sonic’s super speed will still exist, or be erased to be more “realistic”. Sonic’s slogan is “Sonic’s the name, speed’s my game!”

In protest to the different design style, an Australian Change.org user by the name of “Gay Gayson” created a petition to “Stop the Making of the Sonic the Hedgehog Movie”. So far, 81 people have signed it.

The movie will be in theaters in November this year.

“Vagina Field 5”: feminism ruins Battlefield game set in World War 2

By Nikos Tsinakis

The latest installment in EA’s popular video game series: Battlefield was officially revealed earlier this week in the form of a two-minute long youtube video. The trailer has since garnered a massive uproar from fans of the franchise for being wildly historically inaccurate, pandering to political correctness and SJWs. The opening scene of ‘Battlefield 5 Official Reveal Trailer’ shows a handicapped female allied soldier charging into a house entrenched with Germans, not surprising that anyone who’s been educated in this period of history would feel disgusted by this absurd depiction of front-line combat during the Second World War. Furthermore, the indicates this game will be a stark contrast to its predecessors, a series that used to be defined by its tactical gameplay, realism and historical accuracy to the time periods each game was set in.

what’s with the Braveheart face paints?

In addition to the blatant feminist propaganda, one can clearly see from the bright colors and excessive visual customization also drew massive irk among longtime fans of the franchise. Giving criticism to how “arcadey” the game looks, making it seem like the game was intended to target a younger audience and women, two groups that have never been of any significant numbers among the existing player base of the game. We know this because a recent poll conducted by the Battlefield subreddit shows more than 70% of the player base are men aged between 18-34.

So why is it, that EA – once rated the worst company in the US is trying so desperately to pander towards an almost nonexistent female audience? Looks like they haven’t managed to put a stop to their tendencies of well-established video game franchises.



At the time of this article being written, the trailer video managed to gain an impressive amount of dislikes – more than 230,000, resulting in a like-to-dislike ratio (50%)  that matches the most disliked youtube video ever; Baby by Justin Bieber.

Here are some of our favorite comments left on the video from angry (rightfully so) fans:

TRASH!!
EA keeps deleting, i keep posting.
handicapped Transgender females DID NOT FIGHT IN WW2.”

“WWII has been V A G I N A W A S H E D”

Cultural Marxism seeping into entertainment

Feminism and social justice ideas are running amok in the 100 billion dollar video game industry, ranging from historical revisionism by shoe-horning women into roles they never existed in, as seen in the latest World War 2 setting Call of Duty and Battlefield games but also policing over how fictional female characters should be portrayed (e.g. they shouldn’t have unrealistic body shapes that “real women” don’t have). Ideas that feminists advocate in real life are also being enforced in video games today as the game publishers seem to bend over to the social justice warriors, a keynote in how all this is connected usually goes; Game company talks about “inclusiveness and diversity” in their video games to cater towards players from all walks of life and gender/sexual orientations, then proceeds to hire a team of social justice sympathizing executives that place their agenda above the amount of entertainment the final product would provide.
