    My unpopular opinion is none of the franchise's history really makes me that angry. Neither do any of the games. I dislike Shadow and 06 and have some mixed bag opinions all around... but I still enjoy a majority of the franchise, and even some more mediocre entries like Forces offer enough in the way of charm or individual aspects I enjoy to justify them as enjoyable to me. I've never quite seen a fanbase as strict about needing their opinions to be black or white or even just downright polarizing as the Sonic fanbase is. It seems like lately, you just have a huge divide of people who either love the Adventure/Early Modern stuff and think Classic Sonic is too difficult or boring, or Classic Fans who think anything that has Sonic in it that's got 3D characters models is the devil itself. I've liked Sonic for a long time, and I like plenty of Sonic things from every period of time. Heck, some of those things I don't even find to be very great I just enjoy them for the kicks or merits I got out of them, because I really like Sonic as a whole. Sonic fandom is just so angry all the time, lol, I feel like so many people could benefit from just taking a step back and breathing.

    To be fair, TTG only has more episodes namely by virtue of- 1) each episode only being 10 minutes long. 2) being a series that is driven by longevity rather than narrative, and thus episodes are pushed out on a constant basis, rather than carefully crafted and spaced out over a long period of time. The shorter episode count doesn't really discredit the accomplishments of the original Teen Titans and probably works more to its advantage, actually.

    As the title advertises! I had been going a while without much in the way of practice, individual video projects wise, so I wanted to give it another spin. All of the mixing (SFX, Music) and Voice Acting provided here are all that of my own! Please let me know what you think.

    Because as mentioned it was used only when the plot saw fit, and often not in a very developed manner. And Cream REALLY needs development.

    In a way, it was really a mixed blessing that we had to wait this long for KH3. I mean, can you imagine the game looking anywhere near this beautiful on PS3...?

    Would be cool to see a Sonic game where the background in every zone is the next zone you'll be going too. Last zone in the game obviously can't do that... unless you wanna be cheeky and make the first zone appear as the BG for the final zone.

    I'd like to start this thread to discuss how characters can be featured in the 2-D Genesis styled games and the gameplay mechanics that could be implemented, since one of the things that I think are yet to be exploited is just how versatile the Genesis formula is, allowing to accomodate characters that can either follow the style of Sonic like Tails or Knuckles, more unique and original ones like Amy (whose entire moveset is exclusive and copies none of Sonic's moves) or even different ways of playing with the physics like Knuckles' Chaotix use of rubberband mechanics to exploit the already existing set of physics. Likewise, while simplicity is often good, there comes a point where it can become restrictive. Personally, I like to have as much control as possible over the actions of a playable character and think that sometimes there are additions that do fulfill this purpose. (For example in the Contra games, the use of the shoulder buttons to lock the aim while moving in any direction/locking the movement to aim in all 8 directions without the character moving) A few points that should be established before starting: * Characters cannot use/copy any of Sonic's signature moves (especially rolling/spindashing, though spin jumping is OK) since the idea is to create characters that offer a more fresh approach rather than something that feels the same or doesn't offer much replay incentive as well as their unique moves being something that will actually be used all the time and not just for reaching some high spot that Sonic can't reach. * Any character is fair game, including those from alternate media (cartoons, comics) if you feel that their abilities could bring something new. Likewise, you can try to come up with new ideas for the existing cast like Tails or Knuckles and how they could be more unique. * You can create controls schemes with either one or two buttons, with this last being the maximum allowed number of buttons. * Please try to create abilities that serve a purpose. One of the things that I felt was a trouble in the first Advance was the way the secondary button was used on characters like Sonic as a mere placeholder. Just like not every character needs to use two buttons, there are also characters that would benefit from having a secondary one in order to fully display their abilities. * List the characters' abilities, followed by the command input and a description of how said moves would work. * Additional ways of interacting with existing gimmicks are welcomed. (For example, Amy hitting springs to launch herself much higher than the other characters) * Try to not go overboard with the number of moves for each character. The maximum should be somewhere between 6 - 8. For starters, this is what I'd do with Amy, who I think was the last character in the 2-D games to actually try something new: Hammer attack: B button (can also be performed in midair more than once, unlike Advance 1. The range is superior to Sonic's insta-shield but is slightly slower and can't deflect projectiles. If springs are hit, she'll be launche pretty fast and high) Jump: A button (Amy's standard jump has her jump uncurled, but is slightly higher that Sonic's) Hammer Jump: Down + B (Amy hits the ground to launch herself high and fast into the air but during this move she can't perform any type of attacks. Can also be used on loops/slopes like regular jumps to build momentum, but with an extra boost of speed) Hammer whirl: Down + B in midair (Amy will cancel all forward momentum and will drop vertically, continuously boincing on the target(s) and gaining extra height with each bounce, which prevents her from trivializing boss fights while on a side bonus, featuring another way to find alternate paths with a little bit more skill involved. Can also be used for platforming sections where precision is a must) Amy-dash: Up + A (functionality is very similar to the Super peel-out, but less fast) Giant steps: Down + A (Amy performs a quick jump that covers plenty of horizontal distance, but has very little height. Ideal for quickly jumping between platforms or to climb very steep slopes that the other characters can't using a spindash) Hammer-copter: A while in midair (Similar to a move from Heroes. Amy spins using her hammer, gaining a little bit of extra impulse forward. Think of it as a mid-air jump that mainly covers horizontal distance) Insta-duck: down while on the ground (Amy will crounch almost instantly, even when she is running top speed. This can be helpful on those carnival stages where you have springs facing each other that can cause the placer to bounce back and forward constantly) Now, for an existing one, I'll give my take on Espio. Double jump: A button while in mid-air. Kunai slash: B button (Espio uses his kunai to attack enemies. His range is not as goid as Amy but his attacks are performed much faster) Ninja dash: tap forward twice. (Espio performs a run similar to that of the more dignified ninjas like Strider Hiryu. Sorry, Naruto fans. He still gains speed when running down on slopes but unlike other characters like Amy, he can still use his Kunai to attack while running) Shuriken ring: Up + B button. (Espio throws a ring towards the enemy. Note: this move can be performed ONLY if Espio has any rings available, substracting one per attack, so use wisely, especially if you have only one left) Ninja slide kick: Down + A (Espio performs a slide attack that is very fast, but does not cover much distance. It alternatively can be use to slide into very tight spaces that not even rolling characters can get into, as well as an evasive maneuver to avoid attacks) Wall cling: jump towards any wall (Espio will cling to a wall as soon as the character makes contact with it) Ninja Catapult: while clinging to a wall, press the opposite direction + A button (Espio will launch horizontally at high speed, covering 1/2 screen of distance and gaining a bit of height. Ideal for parts that not even Knuckles can climb) Ninja magic: A + B buttons simultaneously. (Espio rapidly performs the kuji-kiri, causing all on-screen enemies to be destroyed. This move will substract 100 rings and on boss fights, it instantly substracts them 3 HP of damage)

    RTC had an update, some results from messing about with it: Sonic 1 on the Atari 2600... And Seizure Brain Zone. Yes, that was flashing like a rave, absolute murder on the eyes. Then I took the corruption even further beyond and got something truly amazing, so I recorded it. My poor computer did not like that one bit, and I'll have to wait a while before I can upload it due to my internet. Besides the dropping frames, it was spectacular. Just to give you an idea, collecting rings sounded like a girl's screaming. No, really.

    I don't think that was the problem in itself but more it didn't really go anywhere. Having Cream be actually treated as a six year old gave her a more unique dynamic, it's just that after a while no development came out of it, she just came in handy odd times at random and was otherwise sidelined, rather than having points she proved she was capable and the Freedom Fighters' attitudes changed. Sonic X suffered the same problem, she was the tagalong kid who often stayed behind but often that felt more like just an excuse to keep her out of focus. During the Meterax arc they just quickly hand waved it with her mother bizarrely letting her go alone, and the one time anyone voiced concern about this they were portrayed in the wrong and very sharply told by Cream and the others to keep their big nose out of it. And yet Cream still barely did anything useful or had a different dynamic from it. The 'just a kid' excuse doesn't seem as much a developed role for her as much as just a fickle reasoning for when they don't have room to use her.

    Archie Sonic Main Discussion

    That feels like an over specification. The rule of Designated Hero around the site at least seemed to be the hero being present as the clear good guy, in spite of their approach not making them such (e.g. being represented as the reasonable one in an argument, when they were just as abrasive or outright started it in the first place, with their opposition's valid points against them being ignored or swept under the rug). Granted tropes do get contrived and abused a lot. Even post-reboot she had moments that kinda perceived her as being the designated sane one, again the Spark of Life arc cutting people down to size after implying she was in the wrong and directly connecting it to being a hypocrite towards her (something that NEVER EVER happened the billion times Sally was reckless after chiding Sonic). They did TRY to make her more fallible, but it was in still a very forced way, and it still had that notion you were meant to see it more as dirty tactics by Eggman, compared to when say, Sonic is overconfident or Knuckles loses his temper, traits that everyone in universe tends to be aware and annoyed by. I found it wasted potential they didn't focus on her visible overprotective, almost patronising treatment of Cream early on for example, that could have been a bigger pivot when she ended up saving her from one of her screw ups. Sort of a 'not seeing the forest for the trees' approach from the writers to me.

    Now that school is out, I'm feeling like I'll finally be able to get back in the art groove that I unfortunately left so very long ago. One of these days, I'm actually going to be a decent digital colorist and not just use colored pencils every time, but today is not that day! Just a quick drawing of my bubblegum race car driver character, Avery Mastick, once again! By the way, his suit is silvery because a lot of gum wrappers are that color, I even kinda subtly tried to make it look like it's constructed of gum wrappers put together, not sure if it's very visible though xP Normally race car drivers seem to have a lot of different sponsors, but I was thinking that Avery might be exclusively sponsored by a bubblegum brand (uncreatively named "Chew" for now) who uses them as one of their main forms of marketing. And now for another very strange idea from the inexplicable workings of my imagination... In this story idea, there is a rare phenomenon where an individual will spontaneously transform into an utterly bizarre, and sometimes even horrifying, creature. The only thing that precipitates this is a few non-distinct aches and pains, and it is completely unknown what causes this, nor can any pattern be seen as far as what individuals are effected or when. It has no effect on the individual's personality whatsoever. It is rare enough that the government manages to hide its existence from most people, but it is common enough that there are quite a few "altered" people, as they're gently called, in the country (this takes place in America, btw). Unlike in the real world, there is a 51st state somewhere in the middle of the country, and through some shenanigans caused by some flowers native to the state that release chemicals with mental effects, most people think it's a non-exciting and somewhat unpleasant state that they don't care about and don't want to be in, and also whenever they go through the state, they always end up steering clear of large areas surrounded by large amounts of the flowers, not realizing that there's anything there. It is these areas where the altered people live their lives in an amazingly normal way. Thanks to a drug that the vast majority of residents of these areas voluntarily consume, they don't realize how bizarre and disturbing their situation actually is and just live life and interact as normal as though nothing were wrong. Of course, the changes to their bodies do necessitate notable changes in their lives and society, but they don't consider this anything strange or bothersome. It should also be noted that a lot of normal, non-altered people, mostly friends and relatives of the altered people, live in these areas too and also take the drug. Yes, a very strange premise that I'm sure I'll need to tweak in many ways... Though it may sound disturbing, I plan on the story kind of being a somewhat light-hearted slice of life story that revels in the sheer surreality and horror-humor of ungodly abominations acting like and being treated like totally normal people. However, there will be dark and sad moments when people actually deal with how bad the situation really is. I also plan on it being a somewhat thought-provoking story in some ways, dealing with themes of acceptance and judging people as well as the moral merits or lack thereof of the system in place in this story. Anyway, here is one of the main characters in the story. Her name for now is McKayla Denbey, though that's just something I thought of fast, so I may change it. She is an eager, cheerful, and big-hearted college girl who is extremely friendly and loyal to her friends. She loves girly and cute things and has a fashion sense somewhat reminiscent of a middle schooler, but don't underestimate her for that reason, as she's actually very smart. Because of the nutritional needs that she has with her altered body, she mainly eats raw organ meat, and in large quantities. Bloody cow stomachs are her favorite. I've been working on a lot more character designs for this series. I'm trying my best to make them creative and distinct from each other. Here's another one I did, though the character isn't developed much yet: When I told my sisters about this idea of mine, one of them asked me in a skeptical manner, "What's the target audience for this?" My answer was "Me!" Because yes, it does contain a lot of incongruous elements...

    Can’t remember all that happened post-reboot off the top of my head, but I do remember her charging at Cassia with fury over her cybernetics and how she never asked for them despite their benefits, for what that was worth. Yeah, that was House of Cards. It’s unanimously agreed that Sonic was at his most assholish there, but while he could be abrasive he was hardly like that throughout most of the comics and was friendly majority of the time. The Sonic you described seemed closer to Fleetway Sonic in having a mean attitude.

    [16] Mysterious Darkness https://soundcloud.com/paulybfromda303/mysterious-darkness OPD: July 16, 2006||Length: 3:56||Style: Dance https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/55931 During my time in between Christmas 2005 and the time I debuted on Newgrounds, I did about 10 practice pieces. We could say it was a demo album. Only some of them were actually good enough to me to put online, this being one of them. As the title suggests, I tried to give this one somewhat of a darker feel to it, as if walking into a mysterious place where anything can happen. The use of the industrial drums was something interesting I discovered that I really wanted to try out. I discovered this sounded better with slower, dramatic drums, and learned how to really mix styles for a variety of sound This also concludes my first album.

    When I first played SA1 it really had some Ghibli vibes for me especially with Big, Amy, Tails's individual moments in the sunset... A beautiful game... Now everything needs to be "gotta go fast and boost-to-win" and we can only play as Sonic as the other characters are for decoration.

    To be honest, a Classic spinoff with minimal story isn't exactly what I'd consider canon, it can really go either way, it isn't as definitive as a main focal plot point of Shadow dying at the end of SA2 for example.

    Spyro and the scenery looks great. The Gnorcs look kinda ugly and more generic though. Even A Hero's Tail which had plenty of it's own liberties, did a better job matching the 'cuter' style of the original. This is looking a bit worryingly like the same problem NST feel into, trying to make the characters so detailed they look kinda grotesque and lose a lot of their original style. Shame they didn't keep a little closer to this, this actually looked like a decent translation of the original Gnorc.

    My first attempt at drawing Michael Jackson, in a cartoony style of course. It's a lot better than I feared it might be, to be honest. I'll keep working on drawing him, so hopefully look forward to more MJ fan art in the future.
