    Literally every remix for Ultimate so far has been a banger, you can already tell this is a vast improvement over Smash 4. It definitely helps that Sakurai is focused on putting in a lot of high-energy tracks in the game this time around

    [94] Sonic Riders - The Sands Of Time (Sand Ruins) ft. Fallen4Freedom https://soundcloud.com/paulybfromda303/sonic-riders-the-sands-of-time-sand-ruins-ft-fallen4freedom Length: 6:02 // Style: Techno // Speed: 154 BPM // Measures: 219 // Loops: 29 // Clips: 10 // Time Taken: 45 days https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/825488 <- DOWNLOAD Lyrics written by Pauly B, performed by Fallen4Freedom It’s my official audition to join Sonic Legacy as a contributor. Sonic Legacy, formerly known as Sonic Paradox, is a group of comic writers, artists, musicians, and voice actors dedicated to the Sonic fandom, It’s a beat I’ve had in my head for a long time, years. I could never start it because I had a requirement for a female vocalist, as it wouldn’t have sounded as good with my own voice. It took a while to find one. I was asking around one day, when my newfound friends over at Sonic Legacy pointed me towards one of their members, Fallen4Freedom, who agreed to help me out with this project. Hence, the project can commence! I replaced the original sitar melody with her voice, and moved the sitars to the middle bridge and the solo for variety. I had listened to a few examples of Persian electronica to study, and I incorporated a lot of percussive drums and ethnic instruments, mixed with fast paced synths, and I felt like speeding up the tempo was necessary for more of the feel that you’re racing. I tried to focus on layering, and adjusting the left-and-right panning accordingly. It’s still something I need to master, so I’ll gladly take any opportunity to practice it. I also took some time to balance out bass and treble and everything in between. As far as editing the voice clips go, I learned a lot from the single project, and Fallen4Freedom did an absolutely wonderful job with execution, and a lot of it was super easy to edit. It’s not perfect, but it’s definitely an improvement from past projects, and I learned so much. I got a deeper look into a few functions that I hardly used, mainly in attempts to blend clips together when necessary. I’m paying closer attention to the little details, such as timing and volume control. Using two different programs to adjust volumes actually really comes in handy. There are some things I can’t touch with my producing program, Cakewalk Kinetic, that I can in my editing program, Audacity. I’m finding out what those things are, slowly but surely. Overall this was a really fun project to do. I want to send an extra thanks to Fallen4Freedom for doing such a wonderful job, and to Sonic Legacy for providing an opportunity. I hope you all like this as much as I liked learning from it, and as always any honesty is appreciated . Thanks everybody!

    New Famitsu article! This one mostly talks about Isabelle and differences from the Villager. https://sourcegaming.info/2018/09/26/sakurai-discusses-isabelle-echoes-and-newcomers/ There is one blurb of significance, though. I was kind of thinking that this may be the case. It's hard to say how many new fighters are left at this point. Just to be safe, I'm going to predict just two, or maybe even just one, newcomer(s) left to reveal, as well as two or possibly three more Echo Fighters. I still think that Shadow has a pretty good chance as an Echo, and I definitely think that Ken is in as an Echo, especially with that picture leak that, as far as I can tell with all of the evidence, is legit.

    https://thehill.com/opinion/judiciary/405853-partisans-dilemma-fix-the-court-dont-pack-the-court Something different in the midst of all this chaos. While lots of conservative partisans are frothing at the mouth to control the Court, they probably won't be smiling when Democrats get the chance to pack it. That's where this proposal comes in: a Constitutional Amendment that would limit Justices to one 18-year term, fix the number of justices at 9, and have a new Justice appointed every 2 years (so basically, every election would involve picking a new Justice, so there'd be a new sense of fairness and political involvement for both sides). Yes, this means the parties need to give up their short-term gains whenever they are in power. But it also means the Court's prestige and independence is preserved. Otherwise, we are looking at a Court that just adds seats every few years and just turns into a partisan, increasingly powerless and ineffective mess. It is in both parties' long-term interest to pass a reform like this. It would also be easy to frame: Senator McCain enjoys reverence for his repeated desires to try and restore some of the consensus politics, and proponents of this type of Amendment say it would be a great way to honor him. Under the Federalist Papers, Justices have a life term for two reasons: first, it preserves their independence since they don't need to be appointed again, and two, it was a cushy job with lots of benefits that would ensure talented lawyers would try to get on the Court rather than opt for private practice. A single 18-year term would still keep the independence goal, would still provide excellent job security (plus a lot of high-ranking judges serve out of a sense of duty even though they could make more money going on book tours), and let's be honest, the Framers probably did not expect your typical Justice to live much longer than 18 years anyway. This is not a new idea for federal positions, either. The Federal Reserve chairs have staggered 14-year terms, to limit the capacity of a President to pack the chairs to his liking (as he will undoubtedly lose power in Congress as his term goes on). The FCC's board likewise is made of staggered 5-year terms, and has additional rules prescribing the partisan makeup of the FCC. Without a reform like this, we may as well just abolish the Supreme Court. Otherwise it's just an arm of whoever happened to last have a unified Congress and Presidency.

    In 2006, we all believed Sora’s voice gradually deepened as he continued to mature inside the pod between CoM and KH2. In 2008, we discover that puberty just suddenly hit him like a train before he even got to Castle Oblivion.

    This is always framed as a tonal issue when that's not really the problem. There are Disney movies that cover themes of betrayal and revenge. A concept or theme isn't inherently associated with a certain tone or age range. There are comedies about murder and race relations and there's at least one serious mystery thriller about a high-schooler drawing dicks on a car. There's an OK-KO episode about Gun control. I'm not even sure why people consider the basic rebellion setup of SatAM "dark" when Star Wars is one of the biggest kids properties in the world and features the galaxy perpetually in a dystopian state. Are people equating themes and things happening with being "dark"? Is that why this discussion is so confusing every time it happens? If so that's kind of concerning. Sonic Lost World isn't a bad story because it's "lighthearted". It's bad because it's not really executed well. It ends up falling flat in trying to say the few things it's even trying to say with it's story and it has almost nothing going in outside of it. The idea to put in jokes didn't do that. The attempt at lighthearted visuals didn't do that. All the mistakes are on the technical and execution side and not the conceptual side. I really wish we could move away from this whole "light or dark" thing. Tonal shifts happen within series or even within one story all the time. They're seriously not that big of a deal outside of hardcore sects of fandom.

    So something small here. The new Castlevania Requiem is actually the PSP ports of the games, from Dracula X Chronicles, being ran on a PSP emulator, which seems to be why it's exclusive to PS4. So, I have a small, really insignificant question here, you know, really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things and all but... If the PS4 has a PSP emulator ready on it and people can port PSP games AND upscale them through it THEN WHY THE FUCK IS NO ONE USING IT

    Dark themes not only in Sonic but other franchises are totally fine when they are well written with the right tone. What I don't like is the immature sense of "dark" and "serious" that some people at Sega have. Games like Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic 06 try so hard to be dark, epic and complex that end being accidental comedies. Shadow saying "Damn" everytime he dies is not mature, Sonic Team. Just childish. Even Sonic Forces, a title that balances dark and light themes well (IMO), suffered this. Infinite's reaction to Shadow calling him "weak" literally made me burst into laughter. Yes, this character that was hyped as the ultimate threat to Sonic cries like a little girl because someone called him weak. How tragic. If this moment was supposed to highlight his backstory with the Jackal Squad and flaws as a character, it was horribly done.

    People keep saying Paper Mario got dark and I legit have no idea what they're talking about. Granted I only played the first two. Did I miss something or is this just another "I interpret the vaguest sense of drama and bittersweetness as darkness" thing, cuz I remember Thousand Year Door even brought the fucking computer back to life.

    Entire Frozen and most of the Tangled cast confirmed to reprise for KH3 along with one reprisal from Pirates. No word on Mandy Moore or any of the Big Hero 6 cast, but James Woods isn't listed, so it's safe to say that this is only a selection.

    Well in that making of video above, Kaiser mentions two video's in the works. One is the special epilogue to the Android saga, where Trunks kills the future androids and future Cell. He is scripting this by himself, so may take a while. He also says that they have plans for Bojack, so he'll probably follow suit. After that, its anyones guess.

    Dude in Ultra Sonic we had Sonic try to save his uncle from slavery only to fail In Sonics Nightmare we learn that Sonic can have fears to overcome Warp Sonic and Cry of the wolf did show the effects of how Robotniks tyranny are effecting things beyond the Robotroplis and Knothole Sonic Conversion has a very subtle theme of man vs machine Blast to the past shows that no matter how we may want to change the past we cannot The Void depicts a bloody hellworld Spyhog comes dangerously close to Uncle Chuck falling back under the control of Robotnik Not to mention the near end of the world in Doomsday. You have some good themes here, sure they are not too complex but still are quite more than they seem. Especially roboticization, my gosh talk about dark. I actually say the roboticizer is what really makes things really bad, its a fate worse than death. Uncle Chuck really relies into the story that when you are roboticized you really have no control over yourself. You are trapped within your body watching yourself slave away without any way to fight it, you are just a tool and nothing more. Not to mention the process itself is rather horrific, having your body be reshaped into metal and circuits and then when everything is done you have no free will of your own. That right there is nightmare fuel and is far worse than anything seen in most typical saturday morning cartoons.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    He's tried that with more resources at his disposal countless times and always failed. His grand plan here isn't just a clever throwback to 3 & Knuckles- It's Metal finally getting the idea to turn Sonic's ultimate trump card against him. Fighting him head-on? Sonic wins, either on his own or with help from friends. Turning into a giant dragon-robot with the powers of 12 heroes and a water god? Sonic and friends turn Super and overwhelm him. Taking that ultimate power for himself while assuring Sonic can't do the same, and retaining his power-copying? Metal's best chance yet. And although Metal's still loyal to Eggman, he's got enough to personally gain here. His primary motivation is to prove himself superior to his organic template, and as shown in Issues 7 and 9, he still has that goal. Just because he no longer has his own lust for power doesn't mean he's not acting out of his own interests, too- He just found a compromise between his and Eggman's desires.

    As much as I would like to say Sonic Forces changed my opinion on Sonic Team to some degree... But who even are Sonic Team nowadays? Sonic Forces barely had any of the same staff as the previous games outside of a few common people we often see. It's hard to put correct blame on a team that keeps changing it's staff.

    It's not that. I have to keep telling people every time I state my opinions that I don't think it'll be like the Smurfs or whatever else. This film doesn't look, nor feel Sonic. I'm not getting the sense of "super fast, spiny hedgehog who loves to explore the world and fight for freedom." Everything about this feels like "Sonic the Plot Device" instead. And because of no concrete information about plot or anything, we're left to wonder what the hell this movie is going to be about, and how Sonic ties into it. If it ends up as "Sonic ends up in our world," I will kick a puppy. All this talk of sequels make me feel even less confident about the film too, because it sounds like this is meant to form a poorly put together "movie universe" for da big monies, even though it's just a standalone video game adaptation in which the movie still hasn't finished filming. We need information, real information, and we need it fast.

    Penders is in no position to complain about about this, and frankly I have a very hard time believing he actually says the crap he says online to people in real life. Let's recap Penders precise treatment of Flynn over the years. Penders has slammed Flynn for relying on characters he didn't made, but then gone around and slammed him for not using pre-existing characters more. He's repeatedly denigrated Flynn's run on the book while admitting he hasn't actually read any of it, while at the same time pointedly saying that if he were to ever return to the book he'd simply ignore everything and pick up where he left off. He constantly passively aggressively digs at Flynn on his twitter, often bringing him up out of the blue. When Archie lost the license, he could barely contain his glee at the fact that Flynn and all of Flynn's coworkers lost their jobs- while Flynn thanked his co-workers for their time together, all Penders could do was harp on them for not having a backup plan or some crap, in a rather staggering lack of empathy. Most damningly, he's even gone so far as to accuse Flynn of lifting ideas from him under the most flimsiest pretenses imaginable, and not once has he ever taken back or apologized for doing so. This man has consistently done nothing but spit bile towards Flynn, and while Flynn has consistently said all of zero about Penders as he tries to get on with his life. And you know, let's talk about those 'professionals' Penders professes to have so much 'respect' for. Actually, that's a lie- Penders doesn't really have much respect for anyone else who worked on the comic save for those people willing to enable him. Back when Mobius 25YL was happening, Bollers opined that 25YL was not THE future, but rather A future and one of many. Penders disagreed tremendously with this, and when Bollers brought this opinion to his forums, Penders repeatedly deleted the threads that contained the information while angrily decrying Bollers, and even going so far as accusing the man of trying to undermine him. Likewise, he's wholly dismissed Angelo DeCesare's contributions to the book while trying to claim sole responsibility for the Bunnie/Antoine ship that got started under DeCesare, calling him a small timer and even baselessly calling his work 'Furry Archie' while admitting to having never read any of it. And then of course there's the fact that he happily trash talks Ben Hurst, a dead man with no ability whatsoever to defend himself or talk back. Penders entitlement here in the face of everything last thing he's said and done is staggering, especially because if ANY person dared to treat him as he's treated others we would never hear the end of it. Flynn owes this man nothing- not courtesy, not politeness, and certainly not his attention. ESPECIALLY when, without getting into specifics, Penders own fanboys obnoxiously tag Flynn's name and Penders name in the same posts over and over and over again purely so they can either try and start something or just froth at the mouth over the fact that the franchise passed them by. THis entire display is as pathetic as it is disgusting.
