    Not exactly news, but an Archie Sonic liveblogger I follow on tumblr wrote a pretty great piece on the grander issues with Penders's writing and characterization, his relation to other parts of the comic and the series as a whole. I knew I never liked a lot of his comics as a kid, but I never quite knew why or what was making me read something else instead of continuing with Sonic's comics.

    Regarding those shoes: Turns out we're getting a different design. Edit: Was sorta reminded of the time Nike unintentionally made a Sonic reference lol

    Surprise surprise; most game reviewers don't care about all of the nonsense that the Pokemon fandom has been shouting for months. It's almost like it was a pointless endeavor fueled by adults with far too much investment in a franchise they played when they were children.

    Honestly, from that trailer, the movie still doesn't exactly look...good, but I honestly might watch it anyway, because it doesn't look unwatchably bad. As for the design, it's pretty good I guess - about as good as it can be considering what they're going for. This movie really, really shouldn't have been live action with a semi-realistic Sonic to begin with, but since that's the angle they unfortunately chose, this Sonic design is decent considering those constraints.

    So far I actually prefer Sonic's personality from the movie over most versions of modern Sonic's personality which I haven't been much of a fan. The personality reminds me roughly just little of Sonic from AOSTH or Sonic SatAM and to a less degree OVA Movie Sonic, which are all my favorite Sonic personalities, besides the classic games if you wanna count those too.

    You know, I'd call out all those Pokemon "fans" for being such whiny brats, but they would most likely put me to the Sword, so I better Shield myself.

    Worst period for Sonic?

    From like 2012 until now, personally speaking. There are a lot of Sonic games that just don't even Ignite my curiosity or hold me long enough to keep playing. I was too young to care when the franchise went into a critical tailspin and still put in dozens of hours on games like Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic and the Secret Rings. I can't imagine doing that for Lost World and Forces both because my tastes in games have changed a lot since then and I don't even find them as ambitious or interesting as games like Shadow anyway.

    Just want to point out that despite working on so many projects, Ian Flynn just launched the first five pages of Drogune, his own newly created comic series done alongside Adam Bryce Thomas. Ian announced he was doing this in 2017, just two years ago, and again, despite all the other comics he's writing for, movies he's watching, games he's playing, and podcasting he's doing, has still managed to get more of the official product out than Ken has for his thing. This is something Ken literally sued people in the court of law over. It was no doubt a heavy contribution to the end of the Archie books and this thread itself started in 2014. MARCH of 2014 to be exact, which means we were barely into the new year. Sonic Boom had just been announced as a thing that was going to exist merely a month before. Now we live in a time where its long since ended. This is unacceptable. There's no excuse for so little progress being made on a project that you fought in the court of law to obtain the rights to make. Its been more than half a decade at this point. My ugly, unintentional comedy story about a gross, human proportioned echinda whose actually an alien in a string bikini is long since overdue, Ken.

    For what it's worth, it seems that New Zealand TV schedules indicate that there's to be a New Year's Day special immediately followed by the new series, i.e. NYD would be the equivalent of Episode 1. Number of episodes unclear (ten or eleven?).

    Weird how something as obscure as Teacher’s Pet got a full-on theatrical movie, while more popular shows like Kim Possible and Phineas and Ferb were stuck with TV movies. Not that Teacher’s Pet was bad, mind you, but it’s not too surprising why the film bombed in hindsight.

    Worst period for Sonic?

    Best period was definitely Tuesday. Mostly for the popularity, seeing Sonic trending and people talking about him, the live reactions to the trailer are priceless, some even heartwarming. And all the positivity of course. I'm not gonna say best day to be a fan was the Mania/Forces reveal, because I woke up in the morning for that but at the time I was having health issues so… I don't have good memories of that, but still, Mania I felt like had a fangame vibe so I wasn't really excited for the announcement, although a return to old school for Sonic plus playable Tails and Knuckles were welcome, as for Forces… it was just a teaser, it didn't do much. Meanwhile with the film, there were 3 full minutes of fun footage, cool action scenes and acting, I'm definitely looking forward to the full thing, it was good content. Yes, I dare say I'm more excited for the movie than the games, because you know the movie is gonna be a bigger thing, probably not better (with the games' quality you never know…), everyone is gonna talk about it.

    That feeling when you're 99% done with an obscure game and you can't figure out where one last hidden item is and virtually NO ONE on the internet cares enough to have documented where said item is located. I feel like I'm back in the early 90s over here.

    Wow. I think that's the fastest turnaround in reception I've seen from this franchise since Classic Sonic shoved his chubby little face into Forces' reveal trailer. And this time it's actually a positive change! While I've never been opposed to the film being live-action, I can't say I'm thrilled with the fish-out-of-water angle or the segregation of "Mobius" and Earth. I've always felt the franchise works best when it just rolls with its weirdness and doesn't try too hard to explain it (Within reason of course; Black Knight wouldn't be nearly as awesome if it tried to ignore the King Arthur angle or was constantly being self-aware about it, but Lost World still needs to tell me, at least in a general sense, what a "Lost Hex" is and why stopping the Deadly Six involves a detour to Doughnut Dimension). Still after this new trailer I'm willing to give the movie a chance.

    That's sort of in line with how the writers wanted to interpret Sonic: a juvenile teen acting out, same with that infamous "legs" teaser poster with the graffiti. I don't particularly... care for that sort of personality for him, but I wonder if they'll give him a sort of character arc where he matures by the end of the film. That'd be an instance where I could accept him behaving like that.

    Movie time

    Hi all! I'm new here, but I've been lurking for quite some time. With the Movie's new trailer and all though, I just had to join up here. I have so much to say! First things first, the design. I don't know about everyone else, but this just became one of my all-time favorite Sonic designs. You have the proportions, the cartoony style, the expressiveness, the realism, everything balanced to blend perfectly into a live action movie! The realistic details mix with the colorful cartoony visage we all know to form one of the best animated video game to live action movie adaptions I've ever seen, right up there with Detective Pikachu in my book. Next we have the trailer itself. The first trailer didn't "feel" like a Sonic movie at all, the slow, suspenseful tone, the slow music, the offbeat humor, none of it matched the character and franchise the movie was based off of. It was literally too slow and lacked the energy you'd expect fom Sonic the Hedgehog. Now, we get the new trailer and it's a COMPLETE 180! It's super upbeat, fast paced and full of energy and visual wonder that makes my inner child squeal in joy! The view of Mobius and Green Hill Zone just took my breath away when I first saw the trailer! The tone is also a lot more lighthearted and fun, Sonic's personality is portrayed perfectly with great writing and delivery (Kudos to Ben Schwartz for another great Sonic portrayal to add to the list!), he gets along great with the cop dude and his unfamiliar surroundings exactly like you'd expect from Sonic himself, and he even has a serious heroic movie when he stares down his nemesis and resolutely states that he'll use his power to protect his friends. That's some Sonic Adventure 2 level of writing right there! Jim Carrey's Robotnik was the only highlight of the original trailer and the only good part IMO, and now in the new trailer, that goodness is cranked up to mind blowing awesomeness. I must say that if anyone could ever portray Eggman in live action, it would be Mike Pollock or Jim Carrey. Jim's signature hamming just really puts Robotnik's character into a character that hardly looks like him! He's like a living cartoon that lives up to the video game Robotnik, and we haven't even seem him go full Eggman yet! That little moment of him rocking out in his secret base was absolute ART! That girly scream when he saw Sonic just made me bust out laughing! I can say that even with everything else cranked up to 11 in improvements, Robotnik is still gonna be one of the film's biggest highlights, with Sonic himself now being the other major highlight, as it should have been in the first place. Finally, I'd like to express my hearfelt gratitude towards Jeff Fowler, Paramount and the development team of the Sonic movie. You've made this Genesis Era Sonic Fan cry tears of joy from seeing how much LOVE was put into his character, and having you guys hear our voices. Not a lot of filmmakers nowadays take criticism to heart whether it's genuine or not and even fewer filmmakers ever acknowledge their mistakes and fix them like you did. You've given me hope for the future and inspired me that anything can be fixed if you do it for the ones you care about. And I know that you care about us all for you to give us this great gift. You guys are heroes. Overall, the trailer was one of the best moments in my life so far and gave me hope that no matter what, Sonic will live on and continue through ups and downs ("how are you not dead? I have no idea!", even they know what's up) and will always have a bright future even through hiccups, because if something like Old Movie Sonic can become this masterpiece, who knows what the future holds? I don't know, but here's hoping we all enjoy it together!

    Once my brother locked Sonic 2 onto Sonic and Knuckles, but clearly didn't make a strong enough connection. The result was Emerald Hill as Knuckles, but there was no music, and the only sound effect was the Metropolis Zone record scratch, which would inconsistantly play when Knuckles bopped a Badnik. At the end of the act, the game froze. In Sonic 3 (standalone) , I somehow managed to get the music stuck on the invinsibility theme during a run of Carnival Night (I'd used a regular monitor pickup). I had to intentionally start to drown Sonic and then leave the water in order to and make the annoying jingle shut up! I've also found that if you do the same trick during Hydrocity's Act 1 boss, the music will change to Sonic & Knuckles' miniboss theme. In my latest playthrough of Sonic Adventure DX, I kept repeatedly pulling off the Tails in Emerald Coast glitch unintentionally.

    It was a "Sonic 4" moment for the Adventure fans; a game designed to pander to them without the substance that made the games what they were. That's why it was so disliked.

    Well here's the final checklist of returning Pokémon... Yeah, I really have to question how this selection process was made but whatever. Though there aren't nearly as many Kanto mons as I was expecting; only about a third of those are either returning or have updated forms. Some exclusions are especially disappointing/surprising, like the Nido line or Salamence, Pokémon that feel right for the region. I think the weirdest inclusions for me are the Alolan mons, with few exceptions (SM had a pitifully small number of new mons) since many of them were practically fully designed for the region and had backstories that tied them into the region that seeing them outside of the context is strange. Sure, makes sense marketing-wise, but Jangmo-O? Passimian? Silvally? Though in defense of the last one, it's possible Gladion shows up and gives you the last remaining Null the Aether Foundation had. Meh, I said it before, I don't really like this, but it is what it is. Disappointing as this is, at least a lot of the newer mons look great. Not enough to make me buy the game when it still has the stink of Pokémon Home clinging to it, but my curiosity is at least satisfied with what we haven't seen officially yet. Here's hoping Impidimp will be good to go in whatever the next game is in a year because I'd really like to use it.

    Worst period for Sonic?

    It's kinda more like, what periods have actually not been bad for Sonic. Whenever it manages to have a couple of good games it ends up shooting itself in the foot soon after. If I had to pick a "worst", I'd have to say the mid-00's. I don't think anything has done more damage to the series than the one-two punch of Shadow and '06. By that point they had broken everything about 3D Sonic gameplay that had ever worked and made a complete joke out of the story and characters, and sometimes it feels like every bad decision since has been either directly or indirectly a response to that period.

    "Trust me, I got it covered. Iizuka is my uncle and Iwata stole the idea for turning the Wii remote sideways from me. Also, Mobians totally eat their young and Sally's technically legal so its okay if my sleazy old man skunk character has sex with her. I'm gonna write that in the wiki even though it didn't happen. Believe me... I know what I'm doing." Oh God, this man... this man... I don't know what he is.

    He has some really great ideas, but unless he can create well-designed stages that take advantage of these abilities then it's just another Sonic fan engine to add to the pile.
