  1. Wonder if they got jaleel white to cameo in the sonic movie?

      As of March, no. He says here that he was never contacted by the movie production team:

  2. Reminder that Sonic had somehow aged down during the Adventure era.462E107B-AE63-4BD3-AAB3-5C3BF5B1047B.jpeg.910025f02a62fca4ea55e74c11310522.jpeg

      The Adventures were actually prequels to the classic games all along.

  3. M&S 2020 renamed Cucky "Clucky." Unforgivable.

  4. I know this is a weird thing to say, but Mario and Sonic 2020 is one of the best Sonic stories in a while.

    Yeah, it's a goofy plot about the Olympics, but the character interaction is legitimately really charming.

      I will agree that I liked the first three Paper Marios in terms of writing over pretty much any of the M&L games, despite still loving the latter. The original Paper Marios were a league of their own.

      Man, I completely don't agree there. 

      Partners in Time, Bowser's Inside Story, Dream Team, and even the new villain-centric side stories in the 3DS remakes all had some great writing and characterization in my opinion.

      BiS in particular was basically a Bowser game where Mario and Luigi got top billing on the title, and is one of my favorite Mario stories. It does a great job of making Bowser both fierce and kind of a lovable goofball.

  6. I kinda wish this forum had a feature where longtime users would be able to create their own subforum that's essentially their own personal blog with the ability to make threads out of daily records, projects, vents, etc.

    I remember one forum I used to go to had such a feature, and it was really cool essentially owning one part of the forum to myself, lol.

      In a way, your profile kinda is a subforum.

      Status updates are threads, and anyone can reply to them, yeah?

  7. In SA1, the Master Emerald was being kept in an outdoor shrine because Hidden Palace was being fumigated.

      The whole palace was full of Buggernauts.

  8. People pronouncing skulltula as "skull-tull-a" is like, an affront to my ears.

  9. Question: if the FF were brought into IDW, would you rather have them and Sonic already have a history (not to the extent of Archie Sonic) or would you want them to not know each other?

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Their history can be Spinball since that was their official game appearance.

  10. Man, when will the search function... well function again?

    I want to make a specific topic, but I’m not entirely sure if an similar topic was already made and I REALLY don’t want to have to slim through over 200 pages of topics to find out.

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      One thing I've been doing is just Google searching the forums.

      Just type "site:board.sonicstadium.org" into the search field followed by whatever term you're looking for, and it'll limit the results to this site.

  11. "The FFs should reappear in a side series"

    Nice forced meme, guys

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Technically they did appear in the games.

      It'd be hilarious if they just showed up, introduced as "those guys I saved from the Veg-O-Fortress back in the day."

  12. I brought back the EE, what am I even doing.

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      The Eggman Empire, my ancient fansite.

      I was feeling really nostalgic and decided to bring it back after years of inactivity. The internet's a pretty different place nowadays, and the era of character-specific fansites has kinda gone by the wayside, but eh. I can't totally leave it behind, I guess; hence bringing it back as a weird kind of fansite/blog hybrid.

      A lot of it, I managed to dig up from webarchive. A lot of it - mostly the old fan-content - already has been transferred over to the new site.

      But this new direction I'm taking the site in will be a lot more focused on organizing and categorizing fan-content, with occasional editorials and articles from me; it's a blog now as opposed to an HTML website, so a lot of the process is more automated. A Discord server in lieu of the old forums, as well. 

      Basically, I'm just hoping for it to be what it was back in the day - a fun place for Eggfans to hang out and share Robotnik content!

  14. In my honest opinion, Zavok should've been removed from TSR's story mode. Keep it Eggman, Metal Sonic, and egg-robos/pawns , and change Team Eggman to Team Villains. That way, Zavok can be playable in other modes, but isn't being categorised as working with Eggman.

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Could've just made Orbot and Cubot a playable character, like how Chao+Omochao were grouped together. They were already in the story mode anyway, so...

  15. Modern Tails definitely has some Gohan syndrome for me. He was really hyped up to grow strong and have lots of potential and really become his own person throughout the classics and SA1 and 2.

    And now he's just kind of a pathetic weakling who can't do anything but be smart. I feel like he'll never be as cool as he once was.

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      The scene only works if you have pretty much no familiarity with these characters, then. 

      At this point, I think it's safe to say the long-time fans are probably more familiar with these characters and their history than the current writers are. They don't care about going back to games from two decades ago and making sure they aren't contradicting things. It's just not important to them.

      Honestly that's a totally fair objection, considering Tails fought off Chaos - with Emeralds powering him up beyond his 0 form - in Sonic Adventure.

      It's really inconsistent for him to be terrified of him, much less common Badniks.

      The issue isn't him being the supporting tech guy, but going from major playable hero to consistent NPC. It's really more a symptom of the current "Sonic only" trend than a slight at Tails in particular.

      Like I said, Mania was a nice break from this pattern, allowing him to be actively playable again.

  18. -playing ShTH-
    god this is worse than Heroes

    -playing Heroes-
    nvm this is worse actually

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      It's a race to the bottom with those two, but I think Shadow's a little worse overall.

      Heroes definitely has parts that are way worse than anything in ShTH, like the special stages.

      Donny's still out there fighting and seeing the action firsthand, is the point. In pretty much all TMNT video games, he's playable.

      I don't care how "strong" Tails is. I care about how active he is.

      He was introduced as a playable hero, though. So relegating him to a mostly non-playable support role really feels like a downgrade.

      I mean, at least Mania gave him a major playable appearance, but prior to that, he hadn't been playable in a platformer in years.

      I think him using tech skills is fine, but being pushed to the sidelines instead of getting in on the action is a net loss I'd say.

  21. Eggman is confirmed to have descendants.

    So, does he already have kids who've just never appeared in the series? Or is he going to meet someone and become a father later on? Maybe he just clones himself?

    These are things I want the games to explore, but I'm sure they never will!

    1. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      @Petrifying Panda

      I think descendants are your direct line. It's defined as "a person, plant, or animal that is descended from a particular ancestor."

      Eggman has to be that "particular ancestor" for Nega to be his descendant. Just being his great-great-great~ uncle or something would make him related, but not Nega's ancestor.

       

      @Diogenes

      That's true, although the family resemblance between Gerald and Eggman is pretty uncanny too - especially in ShtH's flashbacks, where he was fatter and looked a lot more like Eggman than he did in SA2.

      I could believe it's clones, though. Gerald himself knew a bit about cloning (the Artificial Chaos, for one), so Eggman could feasibly take that knowledge and clone himself to keep the Robotnik line going.

  22. HEY, REMEMBER KANTO? BECAUSE IT EXISTED AND IS THE BEST GENERATION EVER AND WE WILL REMIND YOU OF THIS EVERY YEAR FOREVER. BTW GEN 1 IS THE BEST.

      The SMB3 style and aesthetic is definitely used a lot.

      But in terms of just reusing the actual level, the original 1-1 keeps popping up; either in part or in full, in plenty of games.

      • Super Mario Advance 4: Reappears as an e-reader level
      • Super Smash Bros. Brawl: Used for Mushroomy Kingdom
      • Super Mario Odyssey: Playable in the New Donk City theater
      • Super Mario Maker 2: Modified version of 1-1 is the final story mode stage

      Basically, it's a super familiar setpiece that Nintendo likes to keep drawing from. Not an awful thing, and definitely not as overplayed as Green Hill has been.

      The other Sonic 1 zones, though, really haven't shown up too often and it might actually be cool to see some of them again.

      I mean in the sense that it keeps showing up in future games over and over.

      We don't really see a ton of other SMB1 stages or, say, Marble or Spring Yard showing up too often in later games.
