"Just another day in Downtown."
Buongiorno! You stumbled upon my “About Me” page! Never fear, I'll make this short and quick (but not that much, mind you!) As you've probably guessed, I'm a Sonic fan, just like you, so let's put this out of the way, shall we?
Favourite Sonic Games, in no particular order, except for the first two;
Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic Adventure. (love both games to death. Even Big.)
Sonic Adventure 2 (it's not that dark & gritty as they say. Surely different from the current way of story-telling in the series, though. But a good game. I actually like the hunting stages and the Tails/ Eggman stages)
The Rush Series (decent games, good characters. Don't actually like how they are so boost- dependant but...eh, I still play them from time to time)
Sonic Advance 1 &3 ( I like them, not too much to say about them)
Sonic Battle ( An horrible game that I still can't hate.)
Sonic & The Black Knight ( Yes, I went there. What can I say? Gameplay- wise I didn't find it terrible, and I love how the characters are written. Especially our favourite blue pincushion.)
There is not a Sonic game I hate hate hate, but...well Sonic Chronicles was bad. And I'm not a fan of Lost World.
What About The Characters? I'm one of those guys that actually like Sonic's shitty friends. In no particular order after Tails, my favourite, we have;
Tails, Sonic's sidekick.
Dr. Eggman, the jolly evil genius.
Sonic, the main character.
Big. The goofy, simple-minded fat cat.
Espio. The chameleon ninja-detective.
Amy. The sweet, cool & catchy pink hedgehog
Emerl /Gemerl, the powerful Gizoid of death. Cream told me he likes Tea.
Jet, the squeaky-voiced leader of the Babylon Rogues.
Knuckles. The hot-headed guardian of the floating Angel Island.
...erm...Shadow? Omega? Gamma? Cream? Maybe...Vector? Well, it would be easier to tell you the characters I don't like. Elise. Phew, that was short. Maybe Chip, I found him a little annoying.
(Mind you, this list was made without considering the new writers that came on board after Sonic and The Black Knight; I have nothing against them, but I just don't like their style. Oh, and I know they weren't the ones that wrote the story for Colors and Generation.)
Other Sonic- Related things? Ehm....I like Aosth, my first Sonic games were Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic Spinball, around 15 years ago...I like the Sonic X comic book after Ian Flynn took over, I kinda like the Archie and Fleetway comics and...Oh, I also love the OVA. I don't like how Sonic is written nowadays in the games. Gameplay is the most important thing, sure, but a good story, endearing characters and, yes, a sense of atmosphere are always welcomed. Even though it's good, and I can't really say otherwise, I'm not a fan of the art style that is used in Sonic Lost World, sorry.
Enough Sonic, I think. Read after the spoiler to know more about my other interests. If you care, that is.
But first, my wall of trophies earned here, on the SSMB. Badges saved from the void, if you will.
Let's see...I'm an Italian guy, grown up during the 90's and the early 2000s, so probably there are going to be some differences from what you like.
Games I like? Most Mario Games, the classic Megaman Series, X and Zero...Yoshi's Island. Super Smash Brothers. Crash Bandicoot 3. Spyro the Dragon 1, 2, 3. As time goes by, I'll remember other things, no worry.
I also like super-hero comic books and movies. My favourite Super Heroes are Batman, The Thing, Spider-Man...Oh, Stephanie Brown. Captain Marvel (The DC guy), Green Arrow, Power Girl, the Green Lantern guys, Darkwing Duck...Super-heroes in general, really. The one I prefer the most is the Duck Avenger/Phantom Duck/ whatever name the American translators decide to use, Donald Duck's super-hero alter-ego in the Italian Disney-Comics. I even R.P.ed in the board as him! (to know more about the devilish avenger, please do visit this site: http://www.salimbeti.com/paperinik/en/paperinik.htm
On the “Anime side” I like Dragon Ball, Fist of the North Star, Ranma ½, the “Lupin the 3rd” animated series (all three of them, actually) and old school in general. Oh,
if you still haven't, read “Jojo's Bizzare Adventure”, please.
Movies I like : “Back to the Future 1, 2, 3”, “The Iron Giant”, “Aladdin”, “Porco Rosso”, “Pulp Fiction” “Django Unchained”, the Bud Spencer and Terence Hill movies...and more.
You'll discover more useless things about me in due time.
So, that's all for today! See ya on the board, mate! Arrivederci!
