    Consequences of a Dreamcast-Era Split

    The issue with this logic is , its totally fine to do it. Makes sense for sonic as a brand, they have already started doing this, andd brands do this shit all the time. There like 4 different versions of superman or batman running around. There is a teen titans go cartoon, and a teen titans live action show with murder. Separating franchise braches based on interest is fine, if the interests are so diverse than that you would make more money catering to them separately. And I personally think the would. I grew up in the adventure era, so i'm not someone who started with unleashed or nothing. But I figure they might not be fond of if a bunch of adventure-ey shit started showing up in their games. Same for folks if any classic sonic stuff kept coming out. Clearly these are different audiences,

    On the age thing, the ages are relevant at the same time not. Much like archie , and I don't mean archie sonic I mean the old archie comics before everything got more teen oriented. Was basically a comic about teenagers for children. And while teen's and adults certainly do indulge in sonic, the characters being teens technically are for children. The idea is that they have some insight on older kid stuff. Its a common strategy that works, and its employed by MLP with their equestria girls series. So in a branding sense, they matter. In a narrative sense , not really outside of a few specific situations. Characters reading as children looking up to other characters How sonic boom characterized its characters and silver and shadow for a few reasons. But outside of that it can safely be ignored for story telling. I do wish it played more of a roll with sonic. I kinda wish sonic acted a bit more like an immature teenager than a snark machine. And it would be cool if characters treaten him like one, it would make him more relatable. Like he tries to go for a joke at a bad time, and everyone just looks at him and ignores him. I feel like sonic has always been a jokester and you play that up and make him a more relatable " teen " in that regard with some decent story telling. The recent games have done a bit of this, but not enough to where it felt like it was characterizing him in any interesting way. That's my two cents

    That would be interesting there are people who idolize and even fall in love with horrible people. If he is from the future, It would be interesting to hear what he thinks about all the characters. Maybe offer small insights as to what happens with whom They stole her first gunbrella She's pissed this is true

    You didn't. But i'm not finna get into this argument again. Believe what you want. I just think, beliving that is uh... silly to say the least. For a number of reasons, shadow's game... what that game means... sega's track record, ect. But who cares really. None of this matters, my point was that Germeril is a black slate and that's cool, and ian has an oppertunity. Because shadow doesn't need to show up all the time. I'm a shadow fan. I am , I love the guy and his edgy face. Believe you me, but maybe, MAYBE. Other characters are worth investing time into and seeing their reactions to the situaton. Maybe other characters are also important and that's ok. Yes, we are basically owed a shadow moment at the end of all this, there are narrative issues. But that doesn't really mean shadow has to be everywhere. This book has limited room, and we aren't at the point yet where we have spin off material books in which we can use that to dedicate whole swaths of times to characters. Knuckles is another popular guy who is also yet to be seen my guy. Calm down and wait. Shadow will be here. Just chill dude I say this as a man who wants a shadow spin off book, so I can see him all the time. Just chill dude. Just chill

    I'm not gonna extrapolate anything from that beyond " We can use this character. Can't talk about those games " . I'm just gonna say gemril is problably gonna continue being a different dude. Would be a bit of tear jerker yeah

    It would be messed up if she saw her mom turn into a goopbot. By the way i'm calling em goopbots.

    No one said he isn't allowed, he's right there. He's just a different dude. Shadow the hedgehog retcons the crap out of that game, and it leaves him an empty slate. Its why gemril got literally used to be the soul vessel of another character.

    I don't think its like a ban. Its just that sonic battle is mad retconned ,and the gemril we got ain't the same gemril. So its like, you could have gemril strike up a conversation with shadow or eggman. But he isn't the same character, so there's like no value in that. What i'm saying is, as long you don't try and like connect some narrative strings that have long sense severed. Gemril is an empty slate, and that's interesting. As far as I know sega has not interaction restrictions? I think?I Hope not

    Unless i forgot something don't think so. He can copy folks real good. That's about it. And while that may be true, they basically made him a character that was retconned out after the reboot hapened. As long as you don't reference sonic battle or have gemeril interact with some characters, I don't thinks sega cares what gets done with him. He's an interesting clean slate. He is unlike anyone in the sonic roster right now, which is ironically enough, like his original incarnation gameplaywise

    I don't think so? I think the only character who got created to help cure diseases was shad , but that was... never addressed outside of backstory lore. But gemril entire existence is so nebulous that I don't think sega cares what you do with him, so there doesn't really need to be precedent. Gemril can't be Sonic battle Gemril for several reasons, but he can be whatever you want. Even basically other characters as demonstrated in the archie reboot. Why not be a magical robo fix

    I agree and I hate them When I say sonicey in this case I don't mean the brand I mean sonic himself.

    I never found the sonic dark gaia thing interesting. I have very particular opinions on unleashed in general and that very much plays into it. To put it simply, it's not something I want sonic to deal with. I even found the werehog a very unsonic in a bad way. So I much prefer this, it doesn't require all that. Its sonic dealing with an issue and hopefully he learns from it.
