    Wild card it gets multiple sequels but its all Alpha & Omega style straight to DVD rubbish that surprises you that they made another one sometimes when you're browsing in the supermarket.

    That and the whole thing with Evil Sonic not Scourge hitting on every single major girl. Or like "the Legion would eat Robotnik for breakfast" or whatever other ridiculous shit he could come up with. Dude's just a hack.

    Backing to the old school, even this not being remember as a "classic" it got played by some of the best DJs from the time (And some still being very popular). It's a very interesting track, it really worth every second from it. Here remade by Tarrentella &. Redanka, which made it glorious: Solister's Tune of the Day #12 - Atlas - Compass Error (Tarrentella vs Redanka Remake) - 2002

    I must've read that wrong, it can't be. Maximum Overdrive, AKA the Team Sonic Racing Original Soundtrack will feature 130 songs?!?! The game has like, 20 or so tracks! This truly IS an album with a game inside lol

    There won’t be a sequel... The movie will be bad and maybe in the future a better team can make something good out of Sonic, in regard to a movie.

    Aye. Especially given the timing about it- the first time he mused over this subject, it was shortly after the announcement of the IDW Sonic series. Even if he had a legitimate complaint, which he very well might, the optics of it is such that it looks like he only started 'caring' the moment IDW began to handle the franchise he has a sordid history with.

    It's weird how inconsistent it is. The desert zone seems to have death chamber (sandopolis), sand hill and potentially pumpkin hill. Then you have Planet Wisp where all the tracks are from that zone. At least Rooftop Run seem to have variety with its three tracks. We might get lucky with Seaside Hill and end up with Emerald Coast but I'm not holding my breath. About the casino zone, I think it's an interesting change that Bingo Party is set in space. We might get a surprise as the last track even if Roulette Road was shown in the latest trailer. With the planet in the back, the new aesthetic for Bingo Party kind of looks like Tropical Resort could fit in. It's probably wishful thinking tho.

    The biggest disappointment about TSR is not having a City Escape track. I mean Mario Kart 8 has something very similar to that. Also I really don't like how we have 3 Planet Wisp tracks, 3 Casino tracks, and 3 Seaside Hill tracks. I know it's done that way so they can reuse assets, but in an ideal world I would've really liked it if each track represented a zone.

    No no Has to be his original pony. Christopher Reynolds. Because it has to be his character and it has to have a completely unfitting naming convention that is ...for some reason cooler than all the other men created by the original property because he has no respect for it or its fans and are using it as a means to tell stories that no one cares about and seeks to reduce the women in it prizes for said characters to win. What the FU.... Oh ok, that makes sense.

    Please dont make this into a #notallmen thing. I am not talking about you or men in general. Not once did I meant men in general. my comment was 100 percent focused on Ken's words. So far he has been treating Sally's virginity as a prize to be won. ''Geoffrey was faster then Sonic, and the implied line about Sally being one of his conquest. Never did he mentioned that Sally might be Geoffrey's first, how the choice was important to her. It all is about Geoffrey. I wonder if Penders is aware or even knows that nobody and I mean Nobody likes or cares for the Sally / Geoffrey paring anyway.

    Honestly all things considered, I don’t remember much of Echidnaland either. Probably because for all of his attempts to be the next “insert whatever popular sci-fi creator that will surely put him in the annals of history”, the man just never was able to create anything resembling a consistent and thought out world. It’s telling that out of everything I can remember about the Echidna culture, all I can remember are ripoffs of Star Trek, Star Wars, a bit of Superman, and that one echidna with an Elvis haircut. Nothing is modified or changed enough to take into consideration that they were supposed to be an ancient advanced civilization, and instead feels like a hodgepodge of various popular sci-fi bits and contemporary American stuff, like Lara's sweet sixteen thing and Football. Football. In a civilization that should have existed thousands of years before it was even invented. If he really wanted to handle this kind of idea of an advanced ancient civilization, maybe he could have considered making their weapons Chaos Energy based hard light versions of typical tribal weapons. Hard light blades, energy tipped spears and stuff like the Sheikah weapons from Breath of the Wild or something. Heck if he’s so stuck on the idea of Echidna women marrying young, maybe turn that into a case of values dissonance, where tribal traditions once required women to marry young and birth children because the world was a cruel place with no guarantees of survival, so they needed to get children quickly before their current generation died out. However, when they became enlightened and advanced, they never bothered to change these outdated beliefs because they never had any reason to or something. Honestly maybe those elements could have even served as a possible way to gray the conflict between the Dark Legion and the Haven Echidnas, like maybe during their early days the DL were progressive revolutionaries who had discovered a better source of technology, but it had the side effect of being devastating towards the environment but that could be ironed out eventually. However, both out of tradition and fearful paranoia, and mixed with a bit of logical fear for the destructive capabilities of the tech the DL found, AND that they’d be ousted from power, traditionalists tried to Suppress them via numerous ways, one of which might be to force the daughter of one of the DL to marry and be effectively held as hostage. Things snowballed from there and the Dark Legion was banished from Echidnaland, but not before damaging he place to the point they never really recovered. Now the modern conflict is essentially the descendants of both factions, the environmental loving but strictly traditionalist (and highly mysoginistic, hence why there was only ever one female Guardian) Haven Echidnas who don’t understand that their tech is becoming more obsolete due to their traditionalist endeavors and arrogance and their numbers are shrinking rapidly vs the understandably vengeful, comparatively progressive (they have more female leaders for one thing) but also dangerously reckless with technology Dark Legion (implication being that their tech might have unintentionally contributed to the terrible conditions in the Twilight Cage/Zone). Sorry, I think I went off on a tangent there.

    Oh my God. Everything got so much worse when I left for a day. I'm not joking when I say that I was literally eating cake while reading the tweets and replies in this thread. Turns out Penders had a calling for entertainment all along. It just wasn't in comics. This is a man who created a fan-character and because he happened to be apart of the officially licensed Sonic the Hedgehog comic, gets to brag about him not only having a Wiki page but feels its his civic duty to amend said Wiki page so that it says that he "TOTES BANGED SALLY ACORN! I mean, in case all the weird flip-flopping, excuse making, and shit that literally doesn't make sense wasn't a big enough clue, it's even more obvious now. He really wants people to know that he got to create a character that banged Sally Acorn guys. It's official now. Doesn't matter if it actually didn't happen. IT'S TRUE NOW BECAUSE HE WROTE IT IN THE IRON-CLAD WIKIA PAGE! TAKE THAT FUCKERS!" Though, another thing I want to point out that hasn't been stated about the 32 years remark is actually the part at the end of his statement. "Sally may be 16 in human year’s, but 32 in Squirrel years. Your arguments thus become irrelevant due to a legitimate storytelling point. I could go into Why this knowledge hasn’t previously been revealed, but I’m saving that for an actual story." Now that would have concerned me if he was talking about a story that A) Mattered and B) Was ever going to exist. But neither of those things are true so it's perfectly okay.

    I want to add to that something: The qualities that actors admire in a movie are not necessarily the ones that it's primary audience will like; much less want. Maybe they've managed to put together a great buddy-cop comedy, with the addition of a mad scientist hunting a super-fast alien hedgehog, and to them that may be enough. To people who are more familiar with movies than video games, it feels like they took an old concept and made it new again by adding some epic elements. Start with the base assumption that this is a buddy-cop movie, and it WILL feel like it goes above and beyond. However, that isn't the base assumption Sonic fans will bring to this. We want Sonic and things related to Sonic, so to us this doesn't feel like a cliched premise being revitalized by epic elements so much as an epic being bogged down by cliched elements. Yes; we aren't everyone who will see this movie, but who is? No matter how enthusiastic these people are about their product, a lot of standard movie-goers aren't going to take it seriously because of its title. They might get more business pitching it at children, but with "Gangster's Paradise" the theme of their trailer, do they have a good plan for that?

    There are plenty of reasons to be justifiably pessimistic about what we know, and over the course of this thread they've been explored in pretty great depth. If you disagree with them, fine - but either say why or don't bother. We don't tolerate this "no u" bullshit around here, especially if you're going to reduce it to personal jabs like that.

    Your point being? Anyone can say they're passionate or enthusiastic or whatever. That doesn't mean whatever they're making is going to turn out good. Every single day there are passionate, enthusiastic, well-meaning people working on things that ultimately end up being crap. Maybe, perhaps, just roll with me for a second here: they could do that without dropping a bunch of stuff that is important to the series and without introducing a bunch of stuff that has nothing to do with what Sonic usually is?

    True. However, "change does not necessarily mean bad" does not mean "change means good". Whatever changes are made should be evaluated on their own merits, and while I don't doubt some people are reacting to change itself on some level, that doesn't mean that nobody is honestly evaluating the changes and deciding that they don't like them. Okay but what does that have to do with the radical changes and ideas the movie is using? Nobody is asking them to make a one-to-one adaptation of an existing game. They didn't need to turn Sonic into a horrible little gremlin and have him team up with a cop to adapt the series into a movie, but they did so anyway. I don't know why you'd assume this is supposed to be some kind of adaptation of Sonic 1, or that they have any intentions of adapting other games, when this movie doesn't seem to resemble anything that the games have been. Enthusiastic people make bad stuff all the time.

    Christ, what does this film have to do with Sonic at all? Like why is this the Sonic film we are getting. It feels like someone who hasn't kept up with the series or even played the games has taken the most bare-bones sketch of what the franchise is—a blue hedgehog who runs fast—and decided to just create his own entire world and lore for the franchise using just the protagonist and his nemesis. It's not like the games have a particularly strong canon but there is at least some sort of continuity with characters, some locales and a general sense of what Sonic is. I'm so sick of Sonic media always feeling the need to completely separate itself from the games with new worlds or designs, always creating this bizarre off-shoot that only limply resembles what its meant to stem from. With Boom, for example, the redesigns and new setting ended up feeling totally unnecessary as they really didn't do anything unique or interesting with them; you could've just as easily had the normal designs hanging out in South Island/Green Hill or whatever. Here it seems like the other end of the spectrum: they've gone so far and used so little of the source material it feels like a different movie. Why is there only one anthropomorphic animal in my Sonic movie? Where are the Chaos Emeralds or literally any of the motifs we see in the games? Why is someone known for being incredibly goofy playing Eggman? Why is he suddenly called Robotnik again in this film after Sonic Team have spent years clearing up that localisation difference? Why is it live action? Ugh. This feels so removed from anything I associate with Sonic and from what we hear above, doesn't even sound particularly good on its own merit. I guess a couple of the lines sound sort of amusing, but I find it difficult to take any of this remotely seriously as it all just rings like meme fodder and weird fan-fiction considering it has so little to do with what we are used to. With all the money being poured into this and recent CGI films like Wreck-it-Ralph managing to craft exciting, intelligent, heart-warming and critically, commercially successful films about video game characters, I'm so disappointed that this is what we've ended up with as the Sonic movie after all these years. It's honestly a joke.

    If we're using animal years Sally converts to around 80 and Geoffrey converts to around dead for quite a while (maybe 200ish) which is why anthro animals have their species lifespans scrapped and everyone goes on human time.

    Technically, it's ephebophilia. The distinction being an attraction to mid to late adolescents. I bring this up not to say that what Penders has Geoffrey into isn't 'so bad', but because there is a distinction, and pedophilia is kind of the a-bomb of accusations, and one that should only be made with absolute certainty. Having said that, yeah. Everything about this insanely disgusting and completely nonsensical, and Penders choosing THIS as the hill to die on is beyond horrific. Oh, very much so. See, when you get to it, a lot of Penders 'progressive' stances read more as a result of him wanting to be on the right side of history than because of anything genuine. He's good at talking the talk, but the content of his actual work is woefully behind any contemporary standard of liberal politics, especially the feminist part of that spectrum. Worse than that, he is completely incapable of examining his own work with a critical eye, nor will he listen to any criticism that isn't anything sort of lavish. And no, delivery doesn't matter- people who are polite while being critical make as much of an impact as people who are harsh and blunt.

    No, and don't even try. This man is talking about a repulsive thing he WANTED to do, but didn't, and is talking about a pair of fictional characters at that. Reporting him in an act of fan-disgust isn't going to accomplish anything. If you take issue with him, tell him yourself and tell others, but don't play internet vigilante. Not over something like this, hideous as it is.

    It is disgusting. Yet, at the same time, I do find myself being very... amused by this weird alien man's strange thought process. The idea that this man seriously believes that the kind of support the LGBT needs is an underage furry girl hooking up with an adult male skunk is... Like... I'm reading it over and trying to find out where the logic flow is. This is like if someone plugged a power cord into itself and then wondered why it wasn't working.

    Wha? Huh?, uh...? How the hell are you representing LGBT members by mentioning you planned to have Sally and Geoffrey have sex in the comic, and claim that you would never imply heterosexual relationships are the only legit kind, when the very relationship you are explaining - I.E - a man and a woman - is a heterosexual relationship?? Not to mention that representation is nowhere near the fucking problem people are having with this, unless Penders is now trying to claim that a teen and an adult having sex is the same thing as a homosexual relationship or something? I really do not understand what the fuck he's talking about here, other than it feels like he's trying to scape-goat the LGBT community now for his bullshit.

    Robit girl sprites. Haven't been able to decide between the more NES-accurate "3 colors plus transparency" or cheating and adding a few more so I did both. Kinda leaning towards the former though, there's a certain appeal to going more abstract.

    I think at the end of the day whether the actors are fans or not is kind of irrelevant. Like James Marsters is apparently a huge Dragon Ball fan and tried to at least get some adjustments made to Piccolo's character, but even with him doing that Dragon Ball Evolution still turned out how it was. Not his fault, of course, but I don't really put much stock in actors being interested in the property because they don't get to make the big decisions. Stuff like that is ultimately out of their hands.

    I don’t see any reason why they’d suddenly promote a spirit or assist trophy already to playable, when they likely had by the release of the game, a reasonable idea of who was gonna be the dlc choices. Why release them as a spirit if they were going to be dlc or were being discussed as dlc? They may not deconfirm, but they sevearly hurt their chances I feel. Especially when you consider, there aren’t iirc any actual spirits of the playable smash characters that are fightable or used for anything in WoL. They’re just the bonus “view this model of the character” thing. That’s why, say Rayman, I feel has a low chance, since he’s specifically a spirit and is placed in WoL as a barrier of progression. (On top of that, piranha Plant I don’t think had a spirit, and joker certainly doesn’t, so we have a pattern already to go off of)

    I'm going to lose my mind if I see this again. IGN is a publication with a large host of writers with differing opinions, and among it's management staff is @Dreadknux, the creator of the Sonic Stadium: THIS WEBSITE. The fact that most of the Sonic games they review are scored poorly might have to do with the fact that most Sonic games aren't good, but it's easier for Sonic fans to visualize a bogeyman rather than think critically. More on topic, IGN's play by play of the trailer is accurate. Their unamused flavor is also warranted, this movie's premise is downright strange. The sooner this trailer drops, the better.
