    Does Sonic Unleashed Stack Up?

    When the game advertises the day time stages as "running faster than ever before at breakneck speeds" or some other nonsense like that, I'm not going to go "oh hey, the game says the stages are really fast, let's go slow". I'm definitely not going to say that after playing Windmill Isle where I can go extremely fast and not be punished, and I'm absolutely sure I'm not going to say that after playing as the Werehog for an hour or two. Anyways, I don't particularly like Sonic Unleashed that much, the daytime stages were rather boring, and when they weren't boring they were pretty cheap and unfair. There might of been one or two cool platforming segments; the only one that really stands out in my mind is Dragon Road's spinning disc things. The Werehog was... well the Werehog. The level design was rather poor, the fighting dull (some pretty wicked looking combos, but they generally don't serve a practical purpose and I can't be bothered to memorize the Werehog's combo list), and the platforming was decent, but then they stopped letting you catch yourself when falling off of those balancing bits, and that was just... horrible.

    No, he probably won't. I've never met anyone who regrets tattoos. I know people who might not like them so much now, might wish they'd had something else or a better placement or artist. But never someone who actually regrets it. Tattoos tend to be meaningful in one way or another. I imagine that in 40 years he wil be in his 70's and a wrinkley tattoo will be the least of his worries. Who are we to judge whether or not he'll regret this? Just because you might, doesn't mean someone else will. I'm not picking on you eX, it's something loads of people say, it's just your were the first I could quote n_n Either way, it's an awesome tattoo and it takes some real dedication to sit through that amount of tattooing. I don't see how it would cause any issues if he did go to Japan, unless he plans to walk about shirtless a lot, go to baths etc.

    Dark Sonic

    I like the idea of a “Dark Sonic” type dealie, but recent games really trampled too much on that territory for it to make the jump console side. Darkspine Sonic in particular, was a fantastic portrayal of what a rage/grief driven Sonic can become. He was darker and sharper in his tone and mannerisms, while still keeping his fundamental standard as a hero. Rather than completely loosing control, he channeled his emotions into power that he then set upon his enemies. The franchise has shown in the past that Sonic’s emotions and feelings are very strong forces (often more than enough to sway the feelings of those around him). I see no reason why we should be sheltered from Sonic’s angry side. Every now and again, something is going to make him mad and seeing how he handles it would make him all the better from a character perspective. Sonic’s strongest moments of characterization have always come in the heat of the moment, when his ideals are at their breaking point and the enemy challenges him to abandon his ideology. If Sonic were pushed to dealing with his own rage, I tremble to think of what we can learn about him. Stress fosters development for Sonic, and a Dark/Darkspine serves that purpose.

    Your gonna love this one then. If we want speed, than we don't have to look any farther than the comics. Sonic can pull a Flash in that series and vibrate himself through solid objects. If we want a more tangible number, than I'll bring up the infamous issue 175. In the short time it took Snively and Eggman to realize what was going on, Sonic made his way from the Western half of the US continent to the Eastern seaboard. Looking at the map, he started somewhere around Denver and ended up east of DC. Using a high-ball figure (judging from Eggy's and Snivleys frantic exchange), Sonic covered that gap in less than ten seconds. The distance between Denver and DC is 1600 miles. Are you guys ready for this? 1600 miles / 10 seconds = 160 miles per sec 160 * 60 sec = 9600 miles per min 9600 * 60 min = 576,000 miles per hour ... Lets put that in perspective. Mach 1 is 761.1797 Mach 5 is 3805.8986 Mach 7 is 5328.258 Mach 10 is 7611.7971 Sonic was cruising faster than Mach 756. are u kidding me. I knew it would be high... but seriously????

    Dark Sonic

    Dark Sonic is stupid. "Dark" forms are cliche as hell in general, and in this case it's only used as a lazy way to touch on a pretty cliche concept (the hero going "too far"). And they don't even use it well; the whole thing comes out of nowhere, and is resolved in about 5 seconds, with no lasting effect on anything. The design sucks, too. Darkspine is a much better use of a "dark" form; although he's fueled by the same sort of "dark" emotions, and that he's clearly angry and his fighting style is a bit more intense...it's not really shown as a bad thing. It doesn't try to play it as going too far, but more like a righteous beatdown, a deserved punishment for Erazor's manipulation and murder of Shahra. It brought back a bit of the sharp edge that Sonic had been losing hold of, and it fits with the game's earlier talk of how the emotions in the rings aren't necessarily good or bad. And while the design is...kind of odd...I find it a lot more interesting than Dark Recolor. Hell, even the werehog does a better job. Unleashed is quietly playing with this light-dark duality theme throughout the game, connecting darkness to Dark Gaia to negative energy to negative emotions (and likewise for the light-equivalents). The werehog is Sonic's quiet victory over darkness; even after having absorbed so much negative energy that he transforms into a monster when the sun goes down, he still retains his positive attitude, unlike many of the people he meets throughout the game. It's something you probably never even questioned, until the game brought it up and Chip explained how Sonic's will was too strong to be beaten.

    Dark Sonic

    *Warning. This may be seen as a spoiler for some people. Do not read if you wish to learn about Dark Sonic on your own.* So we've all seen the infamous *SPOILER ALERT* right? Don't worry, I just gave you a link to that exact scene. I'm sure we've noticed that this new form of Sonic, which has only appeared once in his entire lifetime, is fueled by anger and rage rather than love and friendship and other happy feelings. He appears to be unable to fly, but he seems to be able to warp around exactly like Shadow. Perhaps this is because his dark form can use Chaos power more efficiently than Super Sonic? Or maybe it's just his raw speed. He appears to be able to warp faster than Shadow. His physical strength appears to beat Shadow's and it comes close to Knuckles' strength (in terms of muscle power.) He also gains a dark purple-ish aura, his eyes are completely white (no irises), and his mouth seems to disappear. He is commonly called "Dark Super Sonic", though his official name is actually "Dark Sonic." There is debate as to whether or not he requires Chaos Emeralds for this transformation. I believe that because he was in the presence of many (possibly 100+) Chaos Emeralds containing ONLY negative power (indicated by how he felt sick to be by them), he was more easily brought to feelings of rage, and therefore able to transform in the way that he did. He can't transform into Dark Sonic without a Chaos Emerald. In my little fan fiction world, Shadow can transform into his dark form by only thinking about what G.U.N did to Maria, but we needn't worry about such silly and non-canon things. I'd like to hear from you guys. I strive for Sonic knowledge, even if it comes in the form of knowledgeable fan fiction.

    While I saw the obvious parallels to "science vs. faith" in Feeling Pinkie Keen, the only episode that really offended me was Bridle Gossip. I hated that the only "African" pony is initially demonized as an evil, tribal, cannibalistic witch, which is exactly how indigenous Africans have been portrayed in Western media for centuries. While the message of the episode was intended to rebuke said stereotype, Zecora was still inevitably portrayed as a tribal witch doctor. Because of this I have an awkward appreciation of the character, Zecora is easily my favorite pony even compared to the main six but due to her stereotypical traits I feel guilty for liking her so much.

    Why do you even watch the 4kids dub of Sonic X? That was just a letdown. The Japanese was was geared more towards teenagers, and it really is a pretty good show. I don't want to sound like some advertisement bot, but I do happen to have every episode of Japanese Sonic X (English subtitles) on my YouTube channel if you want to see the original version. Seriously, if you're going to talk about Sonic X, then watch the original one first. ANYONE can complain about the 4kids one (except for 8 year olds), but I think that at least some of you will change your mind about Sonic X if you watch the Japanese one.

    A lot of people misinterpreted the intended moral of the episode as Faith > Science. Basically the moral was delivered poorly, and most people seemed to forget the Science > Superstition/Faith message from an earlier episode. The intended message was: "just because you can't fully explain it doesn't mean it's not true", aka "don't practice bad science, you pseudo-intellectual douchecanoe". i.e. Pinkie is demonstrated to have an incredibly accurate sixth sense of premonition which works in-universe despite it defying logic and no-one being able to explain it. But all the evidence is clearly there that it exists and it works, and even when that's staring everyone in the face Twilight still doesn't accept it and starts trying to find another explanation she finds easier to believe. Does that make it clearer? Being a closed-minded tit goes both ways in the Science vs Faith battle.

    So, 4Kids, how about celebrating it by letting us Europeans get the rest of the series on DVD instead of just a measly eight episodes. What's that? I'd have to speak to Disney to get that done? God damn it.

    Bah what connection does 4kids have to do with sonic anymore other then holding the airing rights to Sonic X? Unless they want to re-do that crap job of a dub now that would be something! the 4kids VAs got really great towards the end of their runs with SEGA but during the beginning, when X was airing, the voices were just soo horribly bad and not suited towards the character they were playing as ('cept for eggman, hes always been awesome since day 1).

    I think I should point something out here as it's very important that you know this, as using the Sonic wiki as a source on other sites would really have the forum come down on you like a ton of bricks. The Sonic wiki is quite possibly one of the biggest jokes in the Sonic fandom... and why? Well... back in June 2008 someone brought to our attention that Sonic Rush 3 was in development and linked to Sonic wikis article about it, most people haddn't really looked into sonic wiki until this moment. When it eventually got the attention of the community. The levels of laughter could be heard for miles around. This was the exact description that the Sonic Rush 3 page had.... Sonic Rush 3 (Sonic Rush Heroes) is a new Sonic video game that will be released nearly in 2009. It is a new Sequel of Sonic Rush and Sonic Rush Adventure. It says that Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles “Tails” Prower, Knuckles the Echidna, Blaze the Cat, Marine the Raccoon, and the new character will be playable. Marine was pronounced to fly. Dr. Eggman and Eggman Nega might appear in this game as villians. Sonic Nega and Blaze Nega also appear in the game. 6 characters will split into 2 teams. Like Sonic Heroes, you can change formations. Sonic and Blaze are speed types, Tails and Marine are fly types, and Knuckles and a new character are power type. Shadow the Hedgehog is a supporter for Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles, and Mighty the Armadillo is a supporter for Blaze, Marine, and the new character. Amy Rose, Rouge the Bat, and Vector the Crocodile (who only appear in Blaze’s story) are non-voiced characters. No further information available I put in bold my favourite bits. The following were genuine pages that the site had up at the time. Sonic Rivals 3, Hornz the Fox, Berndette Hedgehog (who is apparently Queen Aleena’s sister but is somehow the mother of Sonic, Manic and Sonia [who is now male] as well) Pokemon & Sonic: Explorers of Time Again, I put in bold my favourite one. Unfortunately, because TSS is still down for maintenance, I can't actually link to the article (but it's still there) fortunately... thanks to the power of the wayback machine, the article is still there in all it's glory, except it's missing the picture of Snow White and all the comments from readers. As for Dark Sonic. I don't particually care for him to be honest, as someone who grew up fearing for my life whenever Fleetways Super Sonic would come and save the world before destroying it into a firery inferno. Dark Sonic just seems epically tame to me. YOU'RE GONNA DIE! YOU'RE ALL GONNA DIE! I'LL DESTROY YOUR CITIES AND THEN EAT YOUR BRAIN!

    Dark Sonic

    I'm generally not opposed to good guys occasionally being overrun with negative emotions and acting more vicious than they normally would. But i do feel that Sonic belongs to that specific type of hero whose heroism and kind heart is so strong that he simply can not "turn evil", not even for a second. Like, his morality and refusal to compromise his ideals is such an integrated part of his personality that any actions like being tempted to attack someone out of hatred or revenge would simply be violently out of character. Well, that's the way i see him, anyway. As a character that belongs to the same type of 100% uncorruptable heroes as Goku from Dragonball or Captain America.

    My post applies to this as well. If I'm not mistaken, Sonic takes 3 turns in a row. And did you just intentionally ignore the quote where Shadow said Sonic was the fastest? We've never SEEN Big the Cat break the sound barrier, that doesn't mean he can't do it. And I feel like mentioning that CSS said that "If you wanted to be an ass, you could bring that up." Congrats. Because those are machines. They aren't alive. We're talking about organic beings and their natural abilities. And by the way, that title isn't thrown around because it sounds cool; Sonic is the fastest thing alive. And to a further point, those sections where they "outpace" Sonic, his top speed seems to mysteriously cap itself, even when boosting. Observe that when you get the chance. You'll be surprised. Yeah, we've gathered that by now. You're entitled to that viewpoint, even though you've ignored everything we've said. Shadow being second to Sonic isn't beyond the suspension of disbelief though, but then again, we haven't matched Blaze for Shadow in a proper race. (Funnily enough, you can argue that Blaze uses her pyrokinesis to accelerate faster as well, looking at her Sonic Rush animations) Sonic's the best at speed. Shadow's the best at Chaos energy. Knuckles is the strongest. Tails is the best at flying and mechanics. Amy is the best at stalking and wielding giant hammers. Big is the best at being chill. Everyone has a strength, and no other character is rendered obsolete. And please actually read my post again about how the other characters can still keep a quick enough pace to facilitate the traditional Sonic gameplay mechanics, because I'm not convinced you did so much as glance at my post Nice attitude there, boy. Didn't you just get through a whole rant about how Sonic and Shadow are equal? You're not making a very solid argument. And I told you this. See? You really don't read. We're deducing the outcome with educated theories and prior knowledge to the game series as a whole. If there's really no point to the discussion, then why are you even here?

    I think Sonic actually kinda figures this out a little bit, and I'm surprised I only JUST remembered it. "Hey, it's not his speed..." Shadow's Chaos Control seems to allow him to move far faster than usual, from the user's point of view it's free and quick movement through space, and from an outsider's point of view it looks like a warp of some kind. In the scene where he uses it in SA2, it makes him just as fast as Sonic. So, if Shadow can use Chaos Control without a Chaos Emerald? Then yes, he can move as fast as Sonic. Otherwise? (keep in mind, it's late, i'm tired, brain might no worky right) Sonic can see Shadow in the process of Chaos Control. His mind is quick enough to actually register Shadow's movement through space. That, combined with how Sonic and Shadow are matched in speed when Shadow uses Chaos Control, means Sonic moves and reacts as fast as a basic Chaos Control at minimum, without the ability to warp through solid objects. He's incredibly fucking fast, and Shadow needs a Chaos Emerald in order to reach those speeds. So I would say no, no way in hell is Shadow as fast as Sonic.

    6/10. I was about to correct you but then I realized what the troll was. Anyway, Sonic Rush is a good game. Rush Adventure was a big improvement, too. I beat all the missions in SRA, so it has some good replay value. The music was good in both games, however I prefer the original's sound track because more of them are good and it had an even level of goodness, while SRA had some tracks I hardly pay attention to in game (while in the on rails sections), or were http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cu4sxuhiQ-c.

    Do the Sonic Rush games still stack up?

    Sonic Rush, since my first playthrough, has remained a favourite. It was (and still is) a fantastic adventure and the logical progression from Sonic Advance, the previous handheld core series. As it introduced Blaze the Cat (a strong female character for once) and had one heck of an amazing soundtrack, it got as many thumbs up as I could muster... so, two, then! The only downside was the artificial length of the main storyline. Having the same levels and a roughly-the-same character, just all over again, was a slight disappointment to find in the Blaze story. But then, hey, this is a handheld videogame! Then along came Sonic Rush Adventure, and while I wasn't the biggest fan of the pirate setting and thick black outlines on some of the environment graphics, it overall added to the brilliance of the original. This time, there was no forced second story as Blaze, and Marine the Raccoon was an absolute blast (as many here will support). Using various boats and vessels to travel to destinations, in theory, sounds a chore but none of the journeys take too long, and they're rather fun, especially the Waterbike. Also, the storyline was quite clever, with Captain Whisker being hillarious in small doses (pushing the luck of the pirate setting, but never overstaying welcome). The music wasn't as good: I adore the orchestral stuff, but it sounded a bit tinny through the Nintendo DS speakers, and the in-game stuff was nowhere near as catchy as the previous soundtrack. But put it another way... if these videogames didn't "stack up", why use their engine for Sonic Colours, eh?

    Do the Sonic Rush games still stack up?

    First reply to this thread was hate post. I totally called it. (Mentally, at least.) But anyway I liked Sonic Rush and am looking forward to Sonic Rush Adventure whenever Gamefly decides by some miracle to send me it. I think the people who are hating on this game simply don't like that it's based on speed and are a bit aggravated by the level design, (If there's more reasons than this do notify me, but I didn't see anything else that could possibly be so horribly wrong with that game...) but that's their opinion. Yes they do stack up, they're not even that old yet. Do "stack up" topics still stack up?

    Why do you like sonic ?

    I'm going to have to disappoint you all in being the extremely weird person here and not liking chili. But as I recall, I can remember wanting to play Sonic way back when I was little, whenever I saw small glimpses of him, be it in a commercial or a game review or watching someone else play the game. It's weird though, it was a subtle enough want that I never even thought to ask for a Sonic game for my birthday or Christmas, and none of my other family members were interested in the game, so I never got to play any Sonic games until.... late 2009. Bam. I try Ultimate Flash Sonic, love at first sight. (no gay) Then I go to load up an emulator and I immediately play Sonics 1, 2, 3, and a little bit later, Sonic & Knuckles, when I realized it existed, liking those even more. The rest is history. In short I kinda always knew I would like Sonic, I just never tried a Sonic game until relatively recently. I remember getting a jolt of excitement the first time I made Sonic move to the right. Wow, THAT'S fast. Much faster than any other video game character I've played. Oh yeah, favorite Sonic game. I'd have to say Sonic 3 & Knuckles.
