    "It doesn't give me confidence if a man drops a professional-level fangame to do a professional-level game that'll actually earn him a living" come on, man :V

    Dude remember how much attention he got for Fan Remix? Got interviews with GameInformer and shit, everyone was saying he could work professionally. Putting that talent into a non-profit fangame is honestly kind of a waste of his potential.

    Why the hate for James Fry? D: Okay he's not Tracy Yardley! or Ben Bates but his characters still look cute and Sonicy. Wonky yes, but still cute and Sonicy! No cyclops eyes, no kawaii desu ne art style, no sexualized female characters and most importantly...no Many Hands! =P

    Wii U discussion and upcoming news

    Dude, you know what would be amazing? They get through all the rounds and there are 4 finalists. To decide the winner, these 4 have to fight one another in Super Smash Bros for Wii U. The round is over and the winner is crowned. Suddenly, the lights go down and a light shines down from the ceiling on a man in the Little Mac hoodie on stage. Everyone is expecting it to be Reggie, so imagine their surprise when the figure walks up to one of the on-stage mics, pulls off his hood and it turns out to be He then says "Take a look at this" and Ryu's reveal trailer is shown off. TO PROTECT HIS TITLE, THE NWCHAMPION MUST DEFEAT YOSHINORI IN A ONE-ON-ONE NO ITEMS, STOCK 5, FINAL DESTINATION MATCH WITH YOSHI PLAYING AS RYU.

    Despite already writing 4 stories, Ian apparently still wants to write more. He is trying to get a new monthly series started called Raiders of the Abyss. https://www.patreon.com/IanFlynnBKC Meanwhile Penders still is taking an eternity releasing one book of TLSC. The difference between the two is night and day.

    Ratchet & Clank is a franchise that should familiar to a lot of people, and who could blame you? They're one of the classic PlayStation mascots that's managed to live on for a long time with it's unique brand of shooter and platforming gameplay, great brand of humour, and charming characters. In recent years, Ratchet disappeared for a bit, only being in smaller budget titles, however in 2016, Ratchet made a comeback with a movie and a PS4 remake of the original PS2 title, which a lot of people really enjoyed. It's now approaching the 15 year anniversary of Ratchet & Clank, and with that, there's plenty of fun titles involving the two and hopefully more to come. Feel free to use this topic to discuss the series.

    So, seeing as if I didn't do something like this, it would of just lead to confusion come the actual day, I figured that dumping some info on it would be much more beneficial. So without further ado, let's talk about this. Rucdose, what exactly are you doing? E3 2015 with TSS/SSMB is a stream that I'm currently developing so that all members of TSS and SSMB can have our very own chat room and stream to partake in when E3 2015 rolls around in June. The website I'm hosting this on will be Taima.tv, a lovely little streaming site that's very easy to get used to. How exactly will this work? Basically, turn up to our stream at around the time before the exact conference starts as you would with any stream, and you'll be greeted by a page that features a chat section that is the Taima streams' own so you can talk to your fellow friends from TSS/SSMB and enjoy the conferences! Taima.tv doesn't have a dedicated video system, so the streams you will be watching will be either the official streams from the companies who do E3 or the next best thing. So even though you could be watching a stream from Twitch on our private page, the chat room isn't that Twitch stream's official chat and is instead Taima's own chat that's full of different people from TSS/SSMB. How do I use Taima? When you get on the page come E3, to enter the chat you enter your guest name in the chat and you can begin chatting with your friends. You can also make a account for the website as well and that'll give you access to making your own streams, having a profile and the like as well. Timetables? Timetables' for the conferences can be found at the Taima link being taima.tv/r/E32015STREAM (the text on the banner is white so I can't exactly link it here). Is there anything special I can do in the chat? EMOTES! This is where Taima really shines. A channel is allowed to program into their stream their very own emotes being such things as reaction faces, small sized gifs and such. A pastebin with all available emotes is here and if you'd like to submit some suitable emotes, send me a message and I'll program them in (make sure that their dimension size is around 100x95 though!) I'll still be programming in some of my own though, so we'll surely have a huge amount of available emotes come the day! That's pretty much it in terms of information. Once again, the Taima link is taima.tv/r/E32015STREAM with timetables for the stream being available on that link, the Pastebin for emotes is pastebin.com/kT35wAVe and you can submit emotes to me via PMs. This should be fun, I think. See you from June 14th - June 17th!!

    I honestly don't think a lot of people would complain if they tweaked Wonder Red to be able to pull off attacks without the use of other characters. Yeah it wouldn't make sense for him to fight by himself, but this is Smash Bros., it's a non-canon crossover fighter and I think programming a fun character to use takes precedent over accuracy to the original series. People keep talking about this imaginary limitation about Wonder Red requiring additional characters to function when they don't take into account how Sakurai can make liberties to a character's playstyle as he sees fit.

    Yeezus. He can't stop with the lying can he? Penders CLAIMED OWNERSHIP of the characters. Like those Echidnas, and Scourge. There's no denying it, I think he knows it deep in his heart. He just refuses to admit it. Huh, he actually worked on something else? Let's see what that- OMG that's what he worked on? XD Yeah that is kinda sad. I was hesistant to put this here, but after seeing that bio of Lara-Su and other pics of Lien-Da, I tried to re-draw them in a more Sonic-y style. Then I thought I would stop there, but I ended up drawing Julie-Su and Spectre for fun: What I learnt is, to draw other Echidna characters, just draw Knuckles and add the other parts. Eek that's horrifying.

    The Amazing World of Gumball

    This show. This fucking show. Okay, let me get this out of the way: it's amazing. Absolutely amazing. And vastly underrated, though I understand it might not be everyone's cup o' tea. But anyway, let me share my story with this show, as it's quite an interesting tale. Now, I remember seeing commercials for the show before it originally aired. It looked quite interesting, from what I could see from those trailers, so I decided to watch the first episodes when they aired. My thoughts? Well, I thought it was pretty good. It was funny, and the animation was top notch, not to mention bizarre. I mean, I didn't think was anything super special, and it didn't grab me like, say, MLP:FiM, but it seemed like a pretty good show (which funnily enough is how I feel about Sonic Boom right now, haha). However, I never really kept up with the show. I'd watch it when it was on, but I wouldn't go out of the way to watch it. I still liked it, but I didn't feel the need keep up with it. Then one day I saw the episode "The Kids", the first episode of Season 3, where Gumball and Darwin's voices are getting deeper (you know, because the voice actors went through puberty between seasons). While I was watching it, I was actually hoping they'd keep the deeper voices and have the character mature with the actors (because those actors were perfect for the roles, not gonna lie). Well, I was wrong, as at the end of the episode, their voices reset and they got new voice actors (who actually sounded like younger, less polished versions of the previous voice actors strangely enough). This change annoyed me. Irrationally, of course, but that made me lose interest in the show almost completely, and pretty much all but refused to watch any episodes afterwards. I mean, this wasn't something that I consciously decided, I just kind of avoided doing it. As a result, I didn't watch the show, like, at all, until very recently. About a week ago, as I was perusing the Mysterious Mr. Enter's channel, I saw his review for the Season 3 episode of this show titled "The Shell" and I watched it. What I saw in that review, interested me greatly (mostly because the romance aspect between Penny and Gumball is prominent, since I'm kind of a romance nut... shut up... but other things looked interesting too). I didn't really act on that interest, but coincidentally, my brother caught the show on CN last Saturday morning (the episode "The Storm" from Season 2), and I watched it with him. Long story short, the episode was absolutely hilarious, and also included some romance elements to it (not necessarily from Gumball and Penny, but from some other characters). Watching the episode opened my eyes to how funny this show could be (seriously watch that episode if you haven't, it's fucking hysterical), as well as to how cute some of the characters are (like Carrie the ghost, Penny, Carmen the cactus, etc... shut up). Later that day, I decided to watch "The Shell" online. It was great. Really great. So I watched more episodes: "The Bros." (maybe my favorite episode because ROMANCE... don't make me say shut up again), "The Spoiler", "The Party", "The Pizza", and many more. I haven't watched the entire series yet, and I plan to at some point (why isn't it on Netflix anymore ;~; ), but from what I've already seen, it might just be my favorite TV show, even beating out MLP:FiM. If you haven't watched this show yet, watch some episodes, especially the ones I've mentioned in this post (but especially especially "The Shell" and "The Storm"). The voice acting is great-- yes, even the new actors for Gumball and Darwin (though the old ones are still better)-- the animation is spectacular, and the humor/writing is among the best on TV. Yeah, this show doesn't have a big, interesting, overarching story or anything, which might be a turn off for those of you who are big fans of Stephen Universe or Gravity Falls, but unlike a lot of similar shows, it does have continuity, as evidenced by every episode after "The Shell" (since Penny keeps her "true form" design from that episode, which is shown in my avatar and signature). Seriously, watch this show. The Amazing World of Gumball is fucking gold, and it's sad that more people aren't talking about it.

    It's really cool to see the positive reaction so far. Thanks guys. So here is a fun little addition: BINGO CARDS! I plan on having two main ones accompany the stream. One of which I've already finished is "The Highly Expected", which is what a lot of other people are expecting from this year's E3. Here it is, in it's glory. Now I'd like to ask you guys: What you expect from this year's E3? Your answers will make up the 2nd Bingo Card, "TSS/SSMB's Expectations"! As E3 goes along, if any of the games in these cards get revealed/shown, I'll cross it off the list and when E3 finishes, we can see the results and if we got what we wanted.

    Aside from being a legend in his own lunchbox... what is it with Mr Penders rather bizarre obsession in trying to 1up Mr Flynn? I know it's mainly due to jealousy and spite but if I was him the best way to 1up Mr Flynn would be to put up a highly polished comic or three... It's like watching Homer Simpson trying to 1up Ned Flanders on a usual episode of the Simpsons. Mr Penders playing to Homer's usual snark and rudeness and Mr Flynn playing Ned and just shrugging it off with a smile.
  29. 3 points
    Aye. I can safely say I liked Penders *ideas* more than I liked his execution of them. A secret order of Guardians of whom Knuckles is descended from? That's workable. Them just leaving him in the middle of nowhere without telling him crap for years and years and not intervening against Robotnik despite him threatening the island repeatedly? Idiocy. Pure, simple, idiocy.

    Sorry about that folks! This week has been quite the busy one. I'll be announcing that we'll be switching to a new voting method similar to the Movie Night. We'll release a status update and a link to a google doc with the choices, from there you can vote by submitting your choice via the status update comments. We're doing this as a measure to prevent those not a member of SSMB to vote, making numbers smaller in the poll but much, much more accuracy. Since people decided to have some fun with strawpoll, we are limiting it to status updates from now on. Great job! Anyway, Left 4 Dead 2 has won the poll, before the mess it was at 6 votes while Smash was at 5 before it got spamvoted. The other two choices had 0 votes, leaving TF2 and Payday 2 in the dust. TIME FOR SOME ZOMBIE THINGS: LEFT 4 DEAD 2! Published and Developed by Valve We'll be playing it on: PC HOSTED BY RYAN/NIGHTWING What we might do: The group/groups will decide on what co-op campaigns to play. 5 PM EST/2 PT Saturday, 5/16/15 Join us for some cliche co-op intense zombie fun! Bring a sledgehammer while you're at it too We'll provide more news on what we're doing next week with the new voting method in action after Saturday! Hope to see you there! O_o

First up, his usual and most favorite lie; how he isn't responsible for the reboot happening. Hahahha. To recap, his terms would have gone against Archie's contract. There was literally no way to work with them, to say nothing of his demand that Julie-Su and Locke be inspected by him with every use and approved by him, as well as making 25YL 'the' future. Next, more of his phony and self serving 'support' for Flynn. First of all, your work outside of Archie? Please. You never worked more ten issues on *anything*. You didn't even make it THAT far on Star Trek. And your work outside comics? The Bratz Movie and an episode of King of the Hill, as a storyboard artist. Furthermore... you're not a professional, Ken. You're just a mediocre writer and artist who lucked out and found the one company that was willing to overlook your deficiencies as an artist, a writer and a human being. You don't have what it takes to last at a company with standards, and you never have. Flynn's doing some pretty amazing work, and while neither Sonic nor Megaman can last forever, he's giving more than you did and GETTING more in return. Jeezum Crow, this guy.

    What I love about that is Ian has done loads of non-Sonic work. He's written nearly 50 issues of the critically acclaimed Mega Man Comics. He did the insanely good (And woefully underrated/unread by many) New Crusaders. He's working with Dawn Best on Slyvanna and is doing his own Patreon sponsored original prose story. Not to mention he has written two mainline Archie stories,

    Apologies for the over two year bump, but I promise it's a worthwhile post. At the start of 2013 SoaH City got hacked and closed. It was a huge attack on the site. A rough backup was restored in February 2013, however the site was at a standstill with countless issues. Since then, I have been working on the new version of the site which has now gone live. The site has been given a huge overhaul with a brand new theme, content being revamped, and much more. There are many improvements. An announcement has been published on SoaH's main site covering the new site in more detail: http://soahcity.com/2015/05/11/soah-city-is-officially-back/ The site is still under reconstruction, but a huge amount of progress has been made. SoaH City is officially back!

    The Soundtrack Appreciation Topic

    So happy I found this thread. Now, I'll be able to gush about some of the music some from of my favorite Kirby games. Because y'know.. KIRBY, KIRBY, KIRBY, THAT'S A NAME YOU SHOULD KNOW. KIRBY, KIRBY, KIRBY, HE'S THE STAR OF THE SHOW Kirby 64 is as of far my favorite game in the series (though I haven't played the lauded Super Star and Return to Dream Land, so we'll see if that changes), and on top of that, has some of the best music in the entire series as well. Everything is just so catchy and memorable in this game, and Rock Star's theme never fails to leave my head, even to the point of humming it unconsciously. Kirby Air Ride also had a remix of this track, which I'd even go as far to say is better than this one! I don't care what y'all have got to say about this game, I fucking adore Kirby's Epic Yarn. Goes to show how I've gone through the trouble link more than just one track here because I love it so much. It may play a lot differently from other Kirby games, but it's by no means bad. It's so endlessly charming and cute throughout, and it's just one of those games that makes me feel like a little kid again. As usual for the Kirby series, the music is just so, so good. Even if it's in a different mold by having a mostly piano-oriented soundtrack, it's nonetheless still beautiful. The staff credits are just so calming as well, like seriously. Kirby Air Ride was my first Kirby game, so I have a lot of fond memories and nostalgia for it. I still play it on Dolphin now and then, and it's still a genuinely great game that really, really deserves a sequel; Sakurai or no Sakurai. Believe it or not, Checker Knights, as much as awesome its music is (DAT TRUMPET, SON), it's not from the game, but it's actually from the Kirby anime: Hoshii no Kabii! (or Kirby of the Stars if translated, and for y'all who probably had seen it on air when it was around, Kirby: Right Back at Ya!) It's only a part of the utterly fantastic music composed by Akira Miyagawa for the show, which you can listen to all here. Brawl has one of the best soundtracks to any game in my opinion, with both stellar original music and remixes. The Legendary Air Ride remix in that game is miles better than the original, I still have it playing in the background whenever I'm on Halberd in Smash 4. And now for the last one, 'cos this post is getting kinda long: Fountain of Dreams may just be a orchestral remix of Gourmet Race, but it's a damn good one. Playing on the FoD stage in either Melee or Project M just gets me so pumped up every time. <3 This particular track originated from Nightmare in Dream Land (if I remember correctly?), but even in its limitation to the GBA soundfont, it still sounds really nice!

But hey, since he's not working on the FLAGSHIP character, it's all worthless. Wonder if he views his own run as the same; oh wait, no, he screams about how much better and more successful HIS run was any chance he gets. And it's still hilarious that he's pretending he gives a shit, given that in the past he's accused Flynn of being a thief, abjectly refuses to read his work and passive aggressively disparaged him whenever he could.

    "Sleeping Giant" was a good episode and it definitely had me laughing quite a bit throughout it. I was disappointed that Sonic didn't sing in this episode but we got that horrid singing from Amy and Sticks instead. Nevertheless it was still a good one Like I've done with the previous 20 episodes I would like to give some observations on my end now on Episode 21: These guys engage in some rather bizarre and dangerous forms of entertainment! I'm glad that they do things together though Those looks on Sonic and Knuckles' faces upon discovering the Giant Rock Monster! I'm really surprised Tails even bothers to keep flying his plane after all the bad things that keep happening to it It was cool seeing Amy dish out her archaeological knowledge with a reference to the Ancients from Rise of Lyric. Knuckles lamenting about not getting potato salad of all things! Loving Orbot's flight attendant ensemble! And is that an egg with wings on it? Covering only one ear...that isn't going to work Amy! And she has no right to "talk" considering how terrible her singing was! Amy shouldn't of opened her big mouth...That actually looks fun now that no hazardous rocks are in the way! Dr. Eggman's skills knows no bounds! That's very impressive! His garden is gorgeous...evil potting soil and all So yes, this was a good episode that definitely had me laughing even though it didn't go the way I thought it was going to go. I hope we can hear Sonic sing at some point in this show...Glad we got a good ending too, even if it wasn't ideal for Dr. Eggman amid his choices. At least he thought of some clever ideas to work around that choice with the fountain and the coin pond with the Rock Monster to his advantage Good stuff overall and I hope we continue to get more of that with the next new episode
