  3. Well, I'll be bailing now SSMB.

    Didn't get as much work done on my website over the weekend as I'd like but at least I got some of my notes in order. Now I just need to get back into the mindset for writing the story so I'll catch you later SSMB.

    Have a good night.

  4. You know the trailer could just randomly pop up on the internet at anytime. It's doesn't have to be shown in front of Avengers: Endgame or Detective Pikachu.

    My Reviews of Archie Sonic

    Sonic the Hedgehog: #1-#4 After a successful mini-series, we have Sonic getting a proper continous series. Personally, I don't really see why they couldn't just keep the numbering from the mini-series, since the proper series keeps the mini-series in continuity, and issue #1 doesn't really serve to be introductory in anyway like how #0 from the mini-series, especially with how episodic these early Archie Sonic stories are. But whatever, I suppose it gave Archie an excuse to pump out another first issue so it could possibly receive better sales. So, we hit our first issue of the proper Archie numbering, but for a landmark issue that would last from here to number 290, issue #1 isn't very special in anyway. Again, the true start with issue #0 is where we would see the series and characters introduced, so with issue 1 it really is just business as usual with 2 main stories, and aside from the cover proclaiming it as a big start, it doesn't feel like anything actually new. Ah well, more of a nitpick really. The first issue has one of Robotnik's robots come up with a plan by having a virus that can infect plantlife, a plan that is perhaps rather relevent to the current IDW run right now. However, this virus only infects plants. The plot is kicked off by Antoine going to the surface to pick plants to try and win over Sally, which is a nice little moment. In these early issues, Antoine can be made out to be very insufferable, so it is nice when they give him a bit like this, which is still funny as Sally calls to him while he is lost in thought. Otherwise, plot is standard, Antoine is trapped by vines, FFs save him, and they discover that water short circuits the electronic plants, but before Sonic can save the day, it turns out a heavy storm will do the work for them. Kindof funny having the "first" issue where in one of the two stories, Sonic doesn't actually do anything to save the day. The other story has Sonic go to the Casino Night Zone from Sonic 2 to witness a speech by Robotnik. It is nice to see a game Zone turn up in the comic, complete with Sonic being used in a pinball table, but I do wish it actually even remotely resembled the in-game Zone, with the comic instead going for a Las Vegas parody instead. Decent story, but otherwise, I wish it was tied more to the game version. Issue #2 is perhaps the Archie comic's closest ties to the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, as we see Sonic and Tails go against the Coconuts the monkey, and later the 2 famous henchmen from that show Scratch and Grounder. I havn't watched Adventures since I was a kid, so I can only assume episodes from that were like this little story. I like it, but rather like the show, I do think it is very much for kids only, rather than having adult appeal. In a second story, we see Sonic meet the weird characters of Horizont Al and Verti Cal, 2 topsy turvy characters residing in a weird zone where dimensions are constantly shifting. I do like the fact that the comic seems to be trying to introduce characters or concepts so it doesn't have to always be about Sonic and the Freedom Fighters fighting Robotnik, but Cal and Al are a bit one note, hence why they don't show up much after this issue, aside from a really weird reappearance sometime after issue #50 if I recall. The other notable thing about issue #2 is a short 2 page story talking about Tails, leading to Tails asking the readers if they'd like to see him in a 3 issue mini-series. These early issues seemed to love asking their readers to write in, I guess to help guage what was popular and what the readers wanted with these comics. I guess however they wern't too fussed with a Tails mini-series, since issue #2 would come out July 1993, and the Tails mini-series wouldn't run until December 1995 to February 1996, with Sally getting her mini-series before Tails too. Issues #3 and #4, unlike issues #1 and #2, would in fact have a couple of important firsts for the comic, with issue #3 having us introduced to Bunnie the Rab-bot in the issue's second story. The first story is actually pretty fun regardless, the FFs believe Robotnik has a nuke, so wind up using a protestor distraction and later Rotor disguised as Robotnik to try and stop Robotnik using the weapon, before realising "the bomb" was actually a bug bomb to take care of an insect problem. Just a simple issue with lots of great little gags, as well as the revelation that religion is outlawed in Robotnik's regime. A few funny one off pages in this issue too, perhaps my favourite being Sally getting furious over an article about her dying her hair. I must admit, I do like this sortof old fashioned humour. The second story however, is ofcourse far more significant with Bunnie introduced. Sonic and Rotor run when they hear about Robotnik trying to invade the South of Mobius, but are too late when Bunnie is halfway roboticised with a portable roboticiser. Bunnie however is extremely quick to get over this, with her showing off her new found strength to the Sally, and later to defeat a giant 50 foot high robot. I really like Bunnie, she is just a very funny energetic character with her exagerrated Southern accent and her slightly flirty demeanour. I also like this panel, considering her and Antoine's future relationship. I do find it interesting Bunnie is interested in this way, rather than as part of the gang in the beginning, considering how unless I'm wrong, she was in Satam from the very start rather than introduced mid way through. Issue #4's big first would be the introduction of Super Sonic into the comic. When Robotnik accidently roboticises a lizard into a giant Godzilla like creature, Sonic is forced to become Super Sonic, using the power of the 7 Chaos Emeralds and 50 rings in a Sonic 2 special stage. It is nice to see Super Sonic, even if it does come along with some baggage that I feel would hurt the comic. The Chaos Emeralds are all portrayed as being green for some reason, even though in all the games the Chaos Emeralds are always portrayed as being multi-coloured, and while this issues has Sonic imply only 7 exist, the comic would later make it that Chaos Emeralds are just a resource on Mobius, wtih them used up after being used for a transformation. Not to mention considering how easy Sonic becomes Super, it does become a bit of a plot hole whenever he doesn't go Super when the situation calls for it, especially when the comic hits its more serious phase. Certainly when in the Ian Flynn run, the Chaos Emeralds were changed into their game counterparts after a story arc, I think it was for the better. Nothing too much else to say about #4, Tails gets a little story as he tries to emulate Sonic while he is asleep, only to be captured by Robotnik after becoming overconfident and Sonic having to save him, which is OK.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    If you mean frost. Soon. If you mean jiren there is still a bit to go.
  8. For as much fun as it is, getting a PS1 is a mistake. To build a sizeable game selection, you need to spend a lot of money, especially for the big classics. And pray for dear life if you try to pick up niche games, because NO ONE will have them.

  9. And that was my last shift as a pizza guy. Pretty bittersweet after all this time. I won't miss the job itself so much but I'm gonna miss my coworkers.

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

    There's nothing wrong with Sonic trash talking the villains; he wouldn't be Sonic if he didn't do that. It's really more of a matter of context. When Sonic smacks talks people, it's defiance. The villain has unleashed their unstoppable power and has the upperhand and Sonic refuses to give them the satisfaction of seeing him rattled or scared despite the circumstances. It's basically Sonic just saying "Fuck you". Its not undermining the threat, it's just Sonic refusing to succumb despite the threat. I think where the newer games falter at is actually raising proper stakes to justify such a response. Never do they even really pretend that Eggman or whoever is a threat to Sonic as every act of villainy he does is non-descript or just told rather than shown. Ironically, for all of the shit that Infinite gets, he actually gets to SHOW why he's a big deal as his first scene is him handing Sonic his ass. From then on, Infinite is rightfully arrogant as he now feels justified in his superiority to Sonic and, as I mentioned before, Sonic is having none of that shit and tells Infinite to go stuff it every time they fight up until their final fight. I don't think the way the newer game is necessarily bad, but they're so terrible at actually selling the conflict to make it believable that anything that happens actually matters. It's all so dry and barren. And really, there's no way to fix that beyond getting somebody who gives enough of a damn to actually tell a proper story.

    On the other hand: IT'S A FUCKING CRAB. Like, a literal crab. I may sound like an asshole for saying this, but it makes me laugh more than it outrages me.

      It’s a reference to the crab rave.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - PLEASE SPOILER TAG LEAKS

    Besides some of the non-moderated ones... here are some cool designs
  24. Hey, just a friendly reminder: we can’t go through life expecting only 3rd parties for Smash, let alone as part of Ultimate’s Fighter Pass. They do generate hype, for sure, but Smash is still a franchise heavily focused on Nintendo, nothing more or less.

    1. Ferno



      we need 4th parties now

    2. PublicEnemy1


      @Ferno Look, I like 4th as much as the next guy, and some would actually be a pretty good fit in the game, BUT it also opens up the door for a whole bunch of crap.

    3. Dee Dude

      95% chance Ferno was joking.

    4. PublicEnemy1


      I know, but I like taking answers seriously.

    5. Ferno


      wait are 4th party developers a real thing

    6. SupahBerry


      Many Nintendo purists have been put on edge enough over the increased amount of 3rd party reps that got in already. I feel their be an equal amount of people who'd be angered over the whole pass being 3rd party as there would be those who'd be hyped.

    7. Ferno


      just give me rayman and i'll never ask for anything else ever again nintendo

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    So the last episode saw Frost show up again with a deal with Champa being shown, as well as Jiren taking someone out. How many episodes to go before he really comes into focus?
