    Consequences of a Dreamcast-Era Split

    Yeah, Sonic's universe as of Sega's current canon is a complete mess. I'll never be able to get over the fact that we are now supposed to accept that the Classic games didn't even happen in the same universe as the modern games... Sigh, it makes me nostalgic for the days when the biggest continuity screw-up we had to wrap our heads around was the whole "is Blaze from the future or from the Sol dimension"-thing. That issue seems downright quaint compared to what we have to deal with now.

    My next combo celebrates the recently premiered Power Rangers Beast Morphers with my current favorite character, Zoey Reeves, the Yellow Ranger. Given her whole rabbit motif, I figured she'd be a good pick for April.

    SONIC X

    Fun fact: I started watching the series back in 2004 with the intention to watch the whole show... and I STILL have episodes left. Over the years I've sometimes gone months without watching a single episode and then suddenly started watching it again when i feel like it. So yeah, this show has been on my constant to-do list for 15 straight years. When I started my journey with it I was a teenager and now I'm a 32 year old man. The day I finally watch the last episode of it is actually going to be a bit sad, since it will feel like a really really long chapter of my life is finally ended.
  5. Today, in making fun of TV Tropes, take a look at the Dead Rising Wii page.

     

    Marvel at the contortions the authors took to try and make it sound like it was actually comparable to the 360 one; even jumping into a diatribe about how it shouldn't be called a port but a conversion.

      Linear missions mean it’s an adaption extension I guess?

    Which TBF makes way more sense. Making it to a third year isn't really that big of a milestone.
  7. I just found out all of the My Hero Academia openings and endings are on Spotify. 

    I know what I’m listening to for the rest of the day. 

    1. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Except for Season 1's ending.

  8. Today
  9. The first character outside of the season pass has been revealed. In order to give a promotional boost to the end of Stormblood and the upcoming Shadowbringers, the XIV villain from the Garlean Empire, Zenos yae Galvus steps in. He has an interesting gimmick with his special magiteck scabbard, wich contains 3 katanas that he can interchange for different effects like more range or more power. So far he only has palette swap alts, his alternate costumes will come later down the line: Other than more music and a slight adjustment of Cloud of Darkness, the other important thing is that characters are gonna recieve new alts and weapon skins starting with next month. And the first two who'll get ones are Terra and Kefka, respectively one based on another Amano artwork and the final god form from the end of FFVI.
  10. does anyone else feel like the best sonic games are the ones that feel kind of lonely 

    like there's huge expansive levels/world s (comparing to mario for example) and sonic (or whoever it is) is traversing it basically alone playing around, eggman and sonic don't really interact, they just fight and that's it

    i think that's very unique. my favorite levels ever like egg rocket or stardust speedway past are the ones that bring this feeling the most 

    1. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      I can understand that sentiment since I've found myself yearning of late for a game that is kind of a fusion of Sonic and Journey where you're primary goal is just to use Sonic's abilities to get from point A to point B. Of course though I also see Sonic as a loner and drifter who happens to get along well with people despite being an introvert and relish his adventures of whimsy, wonder, and amazement as he seeks out new experiences and thrills in his ever unique world.

  11. C'mon guys, Coco is actually one of the better handled female characters from the 90s. She is smart, a good mix of girly and tomboy, and competed. Yeah, she is a bit more silly nowadays and yes, she also has these silly death animations like Crash, but that doesn't really destroy her character in my eyes. It actually made her more layered.
  12. Sonic Heroes is average.

    It's not good, but it's not bad.

    It's fine, harmless, plain.

     

    My only complaint is TEN MINUTE STAGES, WHY IS IT LIKE THIS

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      By the time you reach the last few levels of the game, you'll wish that they were only 10 minutes long. Because holy fuck Mystic Mansion and Final Fortress never seem to end.

    2. JezMM

      JezMM

      Final Fortress is definitely the worst, because there are like 3 checkpoints and, to my memory, they're at the 1 minute, 4 minute and 9 minute marks.

      And that eighth minute is the hardest =D

    3. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      The only part about final fortress I hate is dealing with those giant robots with the helmets

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      To me they just felt right and meaty. If anything the 3 minute stages we get now feel short.

    5. Soniman

      Soniman

      These days we can't even get a stage half...he'll a QUARTER of that length. I miss those days 

  13. Hey, check these out:

     

  14. StaticMania

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Tangle needs more focus you say? Well, all agree.
  15. Jack the Shadow

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    The only new character I find one note so far is Tangle… she has a great design but really needs to be fleshed out, she needs a story to be told, and I'm hoping she has that in her mini-series. Because issue 4 was just an introduction for her and she was barely tagging along in the other issues. So, who knows, I believe a lot can be done with comic exclusive characters, so just do it! I know it's early though, but I want to see a storyline for her. Skunk Bros. are okay, I still think they are fodder material, my favorites are Whisper and Starline, but I repeat, Starline is kind of wasted as a lackey, he can hold himself as a villain alone, we'll see how the story progresses, and I'm curious about his backstory.
  16. Yeah, and the trophy girls are even named after women that worked at Naughty Dog, so it's a cute little easter egg. I really hope at least one of them is playable and they're not censored, because there's nothing to be censored.
  17. 8 or so years ago when I came here Sonic Heroes was already unpopular around here but now I think it's got to the point where I think it wouldn't be far off to say even 06 is seen in a better light nowadays loool

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      When I joined the online fanbase back in 2002/3, Dimps were the authority of making good Sonic games, and they had recently released a fairly decent and adequate Classic styled game in Advance 1.

      Then came 2010 and Sonic 4...

    2. Soniman

      Soniman

      God man you're ANCIENT 

    3. Wraith

      Wraith

      Everyone was high off generations and overhyping the shit out of Lost World when I joined. 

      Set the tone for the next 6 years pretty well

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @SonimanIn the Sonic fandom, we prefer the term "Classic". 

    5. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      'O6 is obviously more of a trainwreck and yet I still enjoy it more than Heroes.

      As for when I joined in early 2012;  we'd just had Taxman's Sonic CD where the physics were improved on over the original, Gens where the classic Sonic physics sucked and we were getting hype...heh for episode 2 of Sonic 4 and we already knew the physics would suck.

    6. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      I joined around Lost World, where despite everyone's excitement for it, I had a lot, and I mean a LOT, of skepticism... Once it turned out to be average as heck, I must be honest, I wasn't surprised.

      Then I came across the Sonic Boom announcements. That's all I need to say about that.

       

      Of course, this is only the time I joined this community. I've been roaming around for a lot longer than that.

    7. Ferno

      Ferno

      I joined in the summer of 2006 and people were already turning against Heroes at that point but seemed more lenient since Shadow was worse by comparison.

    8. DarkRula

      DarkRula

      "THE WISPS ARE NOT IN THIS GAME!" I hysterically said in 2013, despite the clear evidence that I had overlooked and was then pointed out to me about five times over.

      And considering how the wisps played in Lost World, I wish that outburst had somehow been able to wipe them from the game before it released.

  18. Ernest the Panda

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Looking at other IDW comics that have lasted long enough, it seems they don’t start acknowledging landmarks until issue 50.
  19. shdowhunt60

    DOOM ETERNAL - "It's hell on earth."

    Because what I really want when I'm playing a fast paced first person shooter is latency from streaming it from a machine that's untold miles away using American internet. Also, using a controller. 🙄
  20. Much as I like the RE5 Chris design(like he’s my favorite design of Chris period.) seeing him as a optional skin in the RE1 Remake is...no. For multiple reasons, but mainly it’s just that I only associate his design with Roger Craig smiths voice, so it’s weird to see someone else’s voice come out of him. (Also everyone else being classic design while Chris isn’t is SUPER weird lol)

  21. Tbh I feel like this Infinity War announcement back in 2014 doomed interest in Age of Ultron from the start, but I like looking back and seeing how Marvel killed the audience like 3 consecutive times within the last 30 seconds or so

     

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Can’t believed they pretty much nailed the release dates with little delay way back then. Props to them 

    2. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Yeah, why care about Ultron if u just found out Thanos-was-coming

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      “That’s the End Game” dear lord, I both love and hate how early that name was being tossed around and most of us never caught onto it.

    4. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      I marathoned all the mcu movies after watching this event cause it was so hype and I wanted to be prepared for Infinity War when it came out

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Is that a huge deal though? I get your point but we knew about Thanos as early as the original Avengers, so we already knew Ultron and the other villains wouldn’t pull off their goals, but we still watched to see how they impacted the MCU as a whole.

      I’d frankly argue that both Ant Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel were the movies screwed by Infinity War.

    6. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      @Ryannumber1gamer Nothing bad really happened to Ant-Man and the Wasp. And Captain Marvel has only the movie's boring nature to blame for itself.

    7. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      No, I disagree. I felt having them between IW and Endgame killed them hard because it had the effect of making it feel like complete filler whilst Marvel scramble to finish Endgame.

      Ant Man’s tie in feels completely out of left-field and extremely dark in a movie that to this point has been retrospectively light-hearted, comedic and funny, and it shows hard in the movie itself given that the final joke is the only real black comedy joke.

      I say this as someone who really enjoys both Ant Man movies - but I felt like Ant Man 2 was hit hard by it. It felt out of place, had a bit of plot distraction because EVERYONE knew that there would be an IW tie in and we wondered where and how it would happen and frankly - having what’s meant to be a more personal and smaller tier story right after the biggest crossover and cliffhanger of the entire series was not a good idea whatsoever.

      Captain Marvel suffers from a lot of the same issues. She’s meant to be what seemingly turns the tides on Thanos, yet she’s being introduced at the eleventh hour, is taking place 20 years before Infinity War, makes light of something that should legitimately be interesting (Nick Fury’s eyepatch), and has tons of controversy behind it because of the main actress’ actions which if Endgame does end up having her being the trump card, I can immediately see another backlash occurring. Granted, I haven’t seen Captain Marvel yet so I cannot comment on it anymore.

    8. Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      Jovahexeon Fitzroy

      You just summed up a great deal of how Captain Marvel has itself to blame more than Infinity War.

    9. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I still think that if the issues weren’t existent, they would be suffering the same exact problems as Ant Man, the only difference is being the worry that Marvel is going to be too OP and change the tides of battle against Thanos alone.

  22. Don't worry, I'm sure the real world setting lends itself perfectly to a crapton of product placements.
  23. Tarnish

    Would you say we’ve entered a new “era” yet?

    It's not having a sense of humor that's a problem. It's the quality, the amount, the timing and the delivery of them that's a problem.
