    A question about the Classic characters

    Alright guys lets try to stay civil. No need to start slinging insults and getting accusatory over opinions. That said, please allow me to point out that both the Oshima and Uekawa designs have been both used with pantomime and voice acting successfully (various voice clips in games as well as the OVA for Oshima's and Sonic 4, Night of the Werehog and the shorts in Unleashed for Uekawa's). Now, taking into account personal bias as well, Classic Sonic is typically affiliated with Pantomime while Modern Sonic is affiliated with voice acting. Now I personally prefer it that way as I do feel that Oshima's design lends itself better to pantomime than Uekawa's and pretty much all of my favorite voiced scenes use Uekawa's so there is definitely bias there. From a brand standpoint now though I would definitely choose to keep that distinction for as long as Classic and Modern are considered separate entities by SEGA. It creates identities within the separate branches making it easier to advertise the two and keep them from over mixing and goes along with the precedent set with Generations, Forces and Mania Adventures. Then there is also from a business standpoint that you save money by not having to pay your VAs for every Sonic product which always looks nice to investors. So from personal bias, marketing perspective, and general bottom line perspective I would still choose to keep Modern voiced and Classic do pantomime. Just so we are clear though, if SEGA could actually blend both tastefully and with good and fitting dialog I'd be all for it, but this is SEGA we're talking about and most of their stuff works better the more hands off they are which they are anything but with Sonic.
  5. BotW was that perfect launch title imo. It perfectly filled the long launch void where the Switch had no games due to how massive it was all by itself- lasted me months.

    Okay. It was kinda of an extended sentence that ended with an exclamation, so I wasn't sure where the question was at first glance. Because a surprising number of people tend to think 2 dimensionally and/or in absolutes. "Everything must be one way or another to be solid," that sort of thing.
  11. If we are not getting a trailer sooner, they should at least release some first look pictures to keep us interesting.
  12. It's been way too long since I've been able to get completely lost in a game or book or something and just detach from the harshness of reality.

      Same, last time I got completely lost in a game was BotW.

  13. That is interesting. So Knuckles is not the Piccolo of the series?

    Sorry, I forgot to clearly ask how come when one asks for a sense of urgency balanced with some levity that it escalates as an argument in a fashion similar to my example.

    Has "Solo Sonic" been detrimental to the series?

    Knuckles has things that he's good at but a large part of his screentime is to be a comedic foil to Sonic's relative competency. Sonic stays sharp and keeps his cool while Knuckles is easily tricked and tends to lose his temper. This is pretty much how their dynamic goes whenever they're together from Sonic 3 onward. He's not literally a butt monkey but I don't think the games ever go that far with it, even the Modern ones. Lost World only really uses him for a joke but it's not at the expense of his intelligence like usual. Later games like Heroes, Zero Gravity and Forces are better about giving him things to do besides screw up than the early ones but it always comes with the ever constant question of "Where's the Master Emerald???" Ignoring it all the time makes him look a tad incompetent to a lot of people but I don't think that big of a deal personally.
  21. One of my friends is nudging me to go to a furcon and I'm honestly becoming less and less opposed to the idea as time passes.

    Has "Solo Sonic" been detrimental to the series?

    Was he, though? As Static said, he let the Master Emerald get broken and he got tricked by Eggman again, resulting in another pointless fight with Sonic. He even got his ass kicked by Chaos 0, who, according to recent discourse, is so weak that only dumb cowardly babies would be afraid of him.

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/429937-democrats-need-someone-in-the-ojeda-lane Interesting piece covering the Ojeda campaign and ones similar to it. The usual trend is people who like Democratic ideas in the countryside vote Republican due to a sense of alienation. Ojeda was able to get not only disaffected Democrats, but even conservatives to back him (even if he lost the race), and it gave him the biggest partisan shift in the whole country with how he destroyed Clinton's 2016 numbers in his district. Ojeda ran as a fairly left-wing Democrat, only really breaking with the party over coal. But his interest in the coal industry, love of recreational firearms, and overall demeanor made him resonate with a lot of rural populists and gave him a huge boost. If the Democrats nominated someone like Ojeda - and the article points out that someone working class is more important than someone necessarily rural, even if that would be a plus - there's a strong possibility they would crush Trump and destroy the GOP's stranglehold on the countryside. I've heard a lot of liberals say the countryside isn't necessary, that they can reach victory through the suburbs... the suburbs. The places that are well-to-do... and who substitute genuine economic reform for a few token acts of social justice. Yeah they'll fight tooth and nail against free tuition and higher minimum wages, but hey, at least they support affirmative action and access to abortion! The hammer and sickle's message still rings true to this day. Only an alliance between the rural and urban working classes can bring real, lasting change. There's a world of difference between disliking military intervention and then refusing to condemn an autocrat as illegitimate. I understand Sanders is fairly non-interventionist. But his refusal to come down hard on left wing tyrants is very tankielicious. Considering the enormous success Rojava has had as a democratic socialist state despite being poor, multi-ethnic, and in the middle of a warzone? Western socialists have even less of an excuse to apologize for tyrants.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Yes, with a minor alteration or two.
  25. DabigRG

    Has "Solo Sonic" been detrimental to the series?

    He means in the sense that Knuckles's overall portrayal and treatment from the other characters wasn't done in a way that singled him out as a dolt overall. Getting tricked by Eggman alone, especially when he doubted it until he thought he saw tangental evidence, isn't incompetence. But then, I suppose you're basically proving Mount's point in a way.

    A question about the Classic characters

    Another thing I'd like to mention is that while its true that the Sonic CD ending didn't have him talking it also didn't really require him to talk either. If that scene had taken place in a Modern Sonic game where the characters talked, you could have kept Sonic either silent or his words extremely minimal to the point of him merely saying "What?" or "Come on...!" and it would have worked fine. I don't feel like any of what was animated there or expressed by his face or body movements would have been sacrificed had that happened. There's a balancing act at work here and should you have people with talent behind your stuff you should be able to make the dialogue come about when it's necessary and keep it from being obnoxious while still animating it well and keeping the characters expressive. There's so many siths here dealing in absolutes. It's odd. Unless the mere act of speech is something people find annoying than I can't really see why that alone would be an issue. I just figured the issue was that, like with everything else, Sonic Team and SEGA suck at handling it. Forces and Heroes aren't really what I would call the desired outcome of talented writers putting the best possible foot forward when it comes to these characters. I've read fan-fiction that had better dialogue than whatever the hell Forces was doing half the time.
