    In Defence of Infinite

    So I'm currently making a 1 hour 30min long documentary video on Tails in Sonic Forces (don't ask how it got to that length it just did). But in part of it I talk about Infinite. Infinite is a pretty stupid character and villain, pretty much what everyone else has said... he's over dramatic, a complete push over in battles, terrible backstory (and really, this is only something the hardcore fans bother with). But in my video analysis of Tails, at one point I started to look at the 6 month war, and wanted to know how devastating it was, I realised that Sonic Forces is really bad at conveying information to the player, key and vital information is given out much later in the game and this information is often undermined by the actions of the characters and events of the game. In the case of the 6 month war and it's impact on the population, there is a lot the game withholds from the player, we don't even know exactly what kind of resistance Eggman faced after he captured Sonic. For instance, did Eggman just steamroll or was it a long drawn out slowly loosing battle for the Resistance? Well... regardless as to what kind of war you think it was, Infinites role in this is quite scary. Whilst Eggman is the hammer, he builds giant machines and destroys everything on a physical level. Infinite wrecks havoc with the minds of the resistance. There's tons of small references that people are just loosing the will to fight and how something is causing them to panic and run. We later see how Infinite's main tactic against resistance is to wipe out all but one survivor and let them run away and tell the story of what happened, that's quite cruel and a very powerful psychological weapon. We see how Infinite can warp reality which completely renders trained soldiers useless. Infinite as a weapon is a powerful psychological force for terror, he cripples the will of the resistance as well as being able to just outright destroy them. ... ... It's just a shame that this is all under cut by his melodramatic delivery and the fact he throws cubes at people for the majority of the game.

    Sonic Tails Knuckles Amy Eggman Metal Sonic Tails Doll Eggman Robo Metal Knuckles Super Sonic Resort Island Radical City Regal Ruin Reactive Factory Radiant Emerald ...Well at least it has more characters and tracks than the game it shares it's "R" with... not hat seems to be saying much at this point. Sometimes I wonder what happened to SEGA's ambition. It's not like you can't play it safe while being ambitious at the same time. It just depends on how you balance things out.

      I'm dissapointed in myself for Fist Bump coming into my mind before We Can

  8. Something about Forces' model looks so gross to me. I think it's the colors. Whoever decided that sky blue and yellow skin were a good combination deserves to be slapped.

  11. (If ya'll didn't see this movie, you're probably gonna be confused) Again, I feel the whole "Why isn't Knuckles protecting the Master Emerald?" thing was really primarily started by how the Adventure games really emphasized that aspect of his character & made a considerable to distinguish him from Sonic, only for Heroes to try & go back to the Classic mentality and every game afterwards being either an epic scale cast herd or a spinoff. Amongst other things, I feel like this is something the Archie reboot did a good job justifying and balancing.

    Leadership and Team Dark

    That what most of groups they just team up and follow , there is no real leader ship .
  14. That was more of a we can change things and the source material is obscure enough that very few will care.

    I think American social media only posts Classic Sonic stuff like promo for Mania and Mania Adventures… because Classic Sonic is more western. Modern Sonic is more popular in Japan.

    Why is it that the Japanese social media seems to put out more... badass content? Like these cool Uekawa artworks. The American branch mostly posts memes and cutesy stuff.
  18. I wonder what it's like to be normal? 😕

      "Normal" is a societal standard that is but an illusion that covers up the full extent of mankind's inherent weirdness.

      How do you feel right now? That is your 'normal.'

      I don’t because there is no such thing. Sure there are things we should and should not be doing but this idea of normal is nonexistent.

      Why be normal? Normality doesn't exist. It's a subjective concept with different standards based on who thinks on it.

    This. I totally agree. Though I am expecting at least 1 team as DLC, so that would make it a 18 characters roster. I really don't get this decision of having so few characters… there are so many opportunities. However I am expecting various NPCs or cameos in some way, I do think there IS fanservice in this game, at least in the tracks. Just not the quantity of fanservice people are expecting.

    How would you fix Sonic's lore, gameplay, narrative, and characters?

    I would make a more cohesive universe, without plot holes possibly and without the drastic differences in tone and quality that vary from game to game,, and obviously have the characters well written. Like the comics.
  22. Honestly I'm warming up to that silhouette. And even then, I'm not gonna judge yet until I see the design.
  23. A part of me wants to be excited for this, but another part of me has been burned by concepts I was down with too many times, so naturally, I'm gonna be a bit skeptical. This one goes into my "wait for the reviews" list.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    No. You are absolutely right. This isn't a nitpick. This just shows how much of a freaking downgrade this is compared to the other racing series. And not only that, they add the most saved, predictable characters to the roster. The only ones, who were kinda a big surprise, were Zavok and the Chaos. That's it! Nothing more. No really weird choices like Merlina, or Chip, or Zazz or Marine. No, we get the most save characters possible. And it is not only the characters. The tracks as well fill so freaking save. Seaside Hill, Planet Wisp, Rooftop Run, and that Ice stage that looks way too familiar to Forces' Chemical Plant. It was already hard enough that we had to sacrifice all the other Sega characters for more Sonic, but than not even take advantage of the brand feels even more insulting. They had the chance to go really deep into Sonic's history. This is the first real Sonic only party game since Free Riders. No Mario, no Sega, just Sonic. And they did nothing with it... NOTHING! If that would have been the case then they just should have never develope this game in the first place. This game feels more and more like a quick filler because Sega does not seem to have anything else for Sonic planned in 2019. Well... besides the movie that will most likely suck.
