Hm, I swear I still remember being somewhat excited for this game since back before the soft launch, when it was just known as being a 2D endless runner of the Rayman Jungle Run ilk. Now, with the kerfuffle over what's going on with the recent updates, coupled with the current inability to play it due to no phone/tablet, I'm just really confused with it now. What, exactly, is going on here?
Whoa, I still can't believe that Gravity Falls is actually ending soon. I mean, it's nice to hear that it's being done with the full intentions of Hirsch instead of executive meddling like with most shows, but still...
From what I've heard, the brainwashing by Lyric is also implied to be the case in the Japanese version of Rise of Lyric. Considering that version came out sometime after the NA version, which had no such details, that could very well be some attempt at an "Author's Saving Throw," as TV Tropes calls it.
Overall, so that was the season finale for Sonic Boom. Overall, I thought that it was a pretty darn good episode, with a neat mix of comedy and action that I've been waiting a while to see again. I do have a little problem with it, though: the tone of Shadow's voice sounded weird, for some reason. With what I've heard of him in the Boom games, I just can't help but wonder if that particular incarnation of the Dark Blur is just doomed to sound off.
Ah, the Lost Impact Hero mission where you must search the colony over and stop all 35 Artificial Chaos. Yeah, not a fan of that one, either, due to the unfitting focus on exploration present there. At least the music there was lovely enough to make the stage more tolerable.
Well, this particular SSMBer have no big preferences for the Adventure games over the Classics, even though he went full speed into the series with Adventure 2. If he shows any such things, it's because he's just a bit bored and tired of talking about the Classic games all the time at this point. With how there's such a (somewhat justified) positive, universallish reception to them, he at least finds that the Adventure games open themselves up to more varied sorts of discussions to have.
Yeah, speaking as a guy who really do dig his fair share of crossover content throughout his life (and even made his own crossover story... which he'll be back to working on as soon as he gets his new Chromebook), I think we can do without any further crossover Sonic comics for the time being, especially with something as unrelated as stuff like Doctor Who. On top of holding back the main post-reboot stories even further than what's already happened with Worlds Unite, but it also just makes Sonic look like he's trying to out-Turbo Turbo.
