    I just rage quit SA2. I feel like I'm really fighting the controls here. And it was on Pyramid Cave a Sonic stage of all things. Once Sonic is up to top speed, the slightest nudge of the analogue stick launches him in another direction. The game is telling me to run on the walls to reach some bonus items, but jumping makes Sonic go in unpredictable directions. Tiny little bumps in the road that are hard to see coming make you come to dead stop too. Enemy attacks are unavoidable half the time and it feels cheap whenever I take a hit. I've got a mod installed that remaps the light dash to a separate button from the somersault. It's great, apart from the fact that Sonic still doesn't collect the full trail of rings, and just stops randomly or goes in the wrong direction. What really irks me is that I know just how satisfying SA2 can be when it all works the way it's supposed to. When the Steam version first came out, I remember blasting through Final Rush effortlessly and getting a totally unexpected A-rank. Going from rail to rail, nailing every homing attack and bounce perfectly feels great. But the problem with SA2's design that I'm finding is that the game doesn't really accept anything other than perfection. It stops being fun if you don't play it exactly the way it was planned. It's almost scripted.

    Surprise, surprise, it's Ray the Flying Squirrel. So, if any of you remember @MightyRay (honestly, why wouldn't you?) then you know her birthday is in January. I've also seen her on twitter talking about possible leaving the Sonic fandom and I wanted to leave her with a good fandom memory and gave this pic as much as I could to celebrate her and her birthday. For this pic in particular I decided to go with a clear blue sky as well to hope for the future of Australia where the fires are still raging out of control. @MightyRay has some links up on her twitter to some charities for those who can donate. I hope she has/had a great birthday and that the future of Australia isn't as bleak as it looks. Happy Birthday @MightyRay!

    I really, really like Archie Sonic Online. Fancomics can be super hit and miss, but it feels like a legit official continuation of the pre-reboot Archie storyline, from the writing to the art to the colors to the layouts. Kudos to all involved (including those of you on this board who work on it).

    This was my favorite of the issues you guys have posted so far. I'm typically one for stories where characters just get to head on over and talk to one another within the midst of an aftermath to a crisis. I'm not exaggerating one iota when I say that the one panel of Sonic hugging Sally and her family was the most I've ever cared about her character before. I'd imagine if I were a fan of hers, this would be hitting really hard but luckily I'm at least able to tell when something's written with affection. Some scattered thoughts I had: - At first I was a little miffed that transferring into Geoffrey's body didn't fix Naugus' problem because I thought that meant it was going to undo the plot point of him taking the skunk over. I'm glad to see that he can actually get it under control. - Seeing the old Egg Bosses made me realize that, aside from a select few, I'm not as familiar with the Egg Bosses from Pre-Reboot as I am Post-Reboot. Eggman's Dozen is one of my favorite Sonic stories period but I keep being reminded that it's apart of the continuity that isn't getting the continuation. I can't help but wonder if some of them will be incorporated into this one somehow. - Almost 10+ years of reading these comics and seeing these characters with parents is still weird to me. You'd think I'd be used to this by now. - The Mina and Nicole beef being brushed aside caught my attention. Having so much freedom at your beck and call is going to make undoing things you weren't fond of or don't see the logic in continuing a breeze. - Knuckles is adorable. I probably would have been really confused by the affection the two had here if I hadn't started my journey through the early issues recently. - Reading these always lights a fire in my stomach. I'm still gonna make my own comic one day. Just you wait. That's all. Can't wait for the next one~!

    Good morning (almost afternoon actually with me really needing to go to bed) SSMB! Odd posting times from me usually means a piece of art and for this one I went well outside of my usual Sonic art style. And surprise, surprise, it's Ray the Flying Squirrel. So, if any of you remember @MightyRay (honestly, why wouldn't you) then you know her birthday is in January. I've also seen her on twitter talking about possible leaving the Sonic fandom and I wanted to leave her with a good fandom memory and gave this pic as much as I could to celebrate her and her birthday. For this pic in particular I decided to go with a clear blue sky as well to hope for the future of Australia where the fires are still raging out of control. @MightyRay has some links up on her twitter to some charities for those who can donate.

    Well, that’s Mega Man 8 beaten. Honestly, I don’t think there’s another Mega Man game I really wanted to like, but just got so annoyed with. After the first initial set of masters, stages go on far too long for their own good, and the Wily Castle might be tied with 1 and 9’s Wily Castle as the worst in the entire series. The gimmicks in this game are just too awful.

    Oh, right. Epic Battle Fantasy 5 came out some time ago. I have to give that a try at some point. 4 was really fun.

    With the success of the Resi remakes, I would love if Capcom gave the Powered Up/Maverick Hunter remakes another shot.

    I think you're making it seem way more complicated then it is. There's no reason anyone would need to jump from the SA2 adaption all the way to SU #2 and just read the flashback pages. Thats a little insane. Reading things in chronological order doesn't account for flashbacks or the way a single issue decides which story is shown first. The SA2 adaption and SU #2 were written so far apart from each other and clearly not meant to be read that way.

    Downloaded alot of 3DS games lately especially with this sale. I think I'm just in that end-of-console-life nostalgia phase with the 3DS right now and I'm loading it up with games I've been eyeing for years to extend my time with it for another few years whenever I'm not on my Switch

    "Sally was made Bisexual after the Super Genesis Wave" *Remembers the panel of her "Admiring" Mina's music in pre-reboot* ...Yeah I'm not too sure about that Mr. Flynn.

    I chose that because Sonic is acting as if saving the world is a simple or fun essential task (hence the word "basically"). His tone of voice and the fact that he's smiling with somewhat of a smug expression while saying that, kind of gives off a "I'm going to have fun kicking Robotnik's ass" kind of vibe to me.

    Archie Sonic the Hedgehog - Issue #53: Unfinished Business So, because this comic apparently has some sort of disorder where they need three different books running at the same time, I've run into problems where the reading order lists I've been following have screwed up twice. I've found a 100% accurate one now so it's all good but this means I'm further ahead than where I should be which is a little annoying, even if it is for a comic that's most likely going to be garbage for a good long while. Not to worry, I'll be covering what I missed next time. What a strange, creepy looking cover though. I’m really not sure what it is here that I’m looking at here. Not only can I not tell what this thing is but… I can’t tell what that this IS and that’s even creepier. Like, seriously, what the hell is that? I guess I’m gonna find out. I’m sure everything will be fine with everyone’s favorite incompetent doctor around. This story is also a joint effort by Ken Penders and Karl Bollers so… so we’ll see how that turns out… Final Thoughts - The majority of this issue really wasn’t bad at all. It was stocked full of a lot of different stuff and new concepts that do end up being heavy mainstays in the book going forward and even recontextualized some things about the book down the line for me. It’s a shame the writing got a tad derpy and confusing there at the finish line but it didn’t completely shit the bed either, so that’s nice. Next time, some more echidnas. There’s so much echidnas guys. So many echidnas.

    Ugh. What a rotten situation all around. I am STRONGLY in support of ending those creepy mass-produced "children's channels", but there's got to be a better way of doing that. You do know some parents buy games for their kids, right?

    Honestly, in addition to working on the next Anniversary cake(because that's most of what we're getting lately), I hope they continue outsourcing Sonic and/or other IPs to whoever is able to make a neat spinoff.

    Welp, the end is here. My final art post and my final over all post on SSMB. I asked way back in May of 2018 if folks could offer me a Sonic character to draw, and boy, oh boy, did you guys pop out of the wood work to ask. So with out further ado let's do this! All done, just in time for Christmas! I was going to have one final post with Ray planting his old reaper staff into the ground (if you're familiar with the RP you'll know what I'm waffling on about.) and walking away but I got caught up in a lot of stuff... so instead I'm going to leave this here as my goodbye message. So long SSMB. Take it easy.
