    The interview was an absolute success! They were really impressed with my portfolio. As reward... gonna see Captain Marvel again!

    It doesn't really seem to have the same general vibe as a Sonic 2 track. Although Sonic 2 did have some songs with noticeably different tonalities. What an incredibly depressing world we'd live in if all our hard work and creativity would inherently be doomed to be lost to time just because it wasn't used in one video game released over 20 years ago.

    Fun is not something one considers when being followed on Twitter. But this... does put a smile on my face.

    Yeah, I'm going to have to disagree with this. Saying Star Wars fans have it as bad as Sonic fans is like saying L.A. can get as cold as Chicago in the winter. Yes, Star Wars has had its fair share of blunders over the years but for the most part, outside of its fanbase, it's still looked on fondly today. Hell, it's a pop-culture icon that almost consistently gets more praise than hate. Sonic, on the other hand, is the butt of every joke in the gaming industry (and probably soon to be in a similar situation in the movie industry). At this point, half of Sonic's output has been looked down upon. The closest Star Wars comes to that are the prequels and even those have their fans (hell it spawned an entire new generation of fans such as myself). They also happened almost two decades ago at this point so, for the most part, they're out of the public eye. On the other hand, Sonic seems to stay in the spotlight with shitty decisions on a yearly bases. I get that a lot of Star Wars fans are feeling down atm and they have reason to feel that way. Though, at the end of the day, y'all are still getting well made content constantly. Between the shows, movies, and what not they're all, at the very least, well put together and have actual effort put behind them. If a bad project props up, it's usually drowned with two other decent ones in the same period. That's a hell of a lot more than what Sonic usually sees nowadays. Like really, I know I'm going to step on some toes here, but TLJ wasn't bad. It made a number of controversial decisions in its narrative but calling it "the worst movie ever made" or some other bs I constantly see hovering around whenever it's brought up really leads me to believe that such people believing that haven't actually seen that many films. I get that you might not like the direction it took with certain characters and scenes (trust me, look at half the post I make in the MLP topic and you'll clearly see I'm a frequent flyer on that front), but to call the series doomed or to even attempt to put it in the same hole that the Sonic franchise is in just seems... well past dramatic to me. A few missteps every so often does not equate to decades of constantly questionable to downright shit output imo. Plus, truth be told, I say this all with the mindset that I don't even think the Sonic series is all that doomed so take that as you will. Hell, at least we still get content.

    How is it, that Sonic is still popular?

    And what is, for all intents and purposes, the third one in a week!

    Yeah. Sonic is fine. The people in charge of him aren't. A better question would be "Does Sonic Team (in name only) work as a game development team anymore?" There's an argument to be had there at the very least. Even if I personally think the answer to that is also obvious.

    I've gone about this issue about as light-handed as I reasonably could. I've already said this is about significant numbers of people, not just a couple of randos, and that a creator's got the right to defend their work against these sorts of accusations. I'm not really sure how much more assurance you need that I'm not arguing for "someone said a thing, shut it all down!" I'm pretty sure when your photoshops and memes involve the current president of the United States that's sufficient grounds to say there's a political angle to them, even if it may not be a particularly biting one. And I don't really buy the humor argument; too often shitty ideas float by unchallenged under the cover of "humor" or "irony" or "it's just a joke". It's often a cheap way to cover up intent from people who still think the internet is something separate from "real life". And the kind of jokes we choose to tell tell at least as much about our beliefs as anything else we say.

    The real shock is that Rouge still uses flip-phones in 2019.
