    I feel like that's more on Sonic team

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    I actually sorta agree but I don't quite feel the same. While everytime I looked at the roster I went " why the hell is pudding here" I wasn't really missing too much, all I wanted was Jacky& Akira, and the bonaza brothers that said I can see how you feel differently. I also wasn't fond of the non sega characters, because I feel like they didn't really add much. My issue with Transformed lied more in the stages and the music selection

    You didn't like the roster in transformed, may I ask why?

    There's a lot of undefined and conveniently unnamed and missing stuff that seems hella mandate-ey

    I don't think its consistent between versions, and its not consistent within fan art. It is consistent with the comic book, which make sense because the games never... really gave him a personality. I'm not really angry or anything, I don't really care about silver too much to get miffed over this, and sonic forces made silver look way worse than he did here. Its just like silver will always be weird to me, because every personality he has in this book is basically a temp personality untill sega does something with him Heck I would argue that " a bit of a dork " isn't really a personality at all and he still kind of lacks it. Like with everyone else I can make arguments they did right by them or wrong by them. But with him... he just kinda exists

    I kind will always have weird issues with comic book silver. And any other interpretation of silver at this point not in a game? It feels like silver never really got a defined personality. So every comic book interpretation just seems like ... winging it

    There might be other special books they would like to accommodate for we might not be privy to, as well

    Eh, he wanted to destroy an entire planet because he was made to not remember his friends dying words saw her die in front of him and was locked in a basement for 50 years coloring his interpretation of everything that has to do with earth rather sour. I mean its still rather bizarre but at least tell the whole story

    I think he's trying do a thing because one time I told him why boom shadow is bad Exactamundo Those aren't remotely the same? That's like saying any two characters with a sour demeanor is the same character

    Help Me Understand The Love For Mighty

    I think you are exaggerating a bit, there aren't a lot of people who like mighty or ray. Heck their announcement was met with " where's amy " . That said there are people who do like mighty I would imagine from his comic book interpretation which was alright. His design is wack though

    You are trying to do a thing, poorly. Anyhow the art in that new comic is great. Hopefully the story is good, or at least... goes somewhere I hope?

    I agree with this This is , ok how do I respond to this. There's a context to this I don't think you are acknowledging. Let me break it down for you. MOST OF THESE CHARACTERS HAVEN'T ACTUALLY BEEN USED IN ANY MEANINGFUL FASHION IN YEARS, AND TO ACTUALLY CHANGE THAT CHARACTER FOR NO REASON AFTER SUCH A LONG DEPARTURE MIGHT CAUSE SOME DISDAIN So there's that, in combination just because it creates interesting conversation means it was a story worth telling. And just because it doesn't create some massive conversation doesn't mean it isn't. We haven't seen shadow react normally to things in years so seeing him react normally to some shit would be interesting. You talk about how he stands back in the corner, but that's has nothing to do with characterization that has everything do with how sonic team designed that video game. And in all honesty you didn't actually get a lot of characterization in that game because he wasn't around enough and the things he did do didn't have him engaging with anyone for a long period of time other than the antagonist whom he had little connection to in the first place. That isn't to say that I don't agree with your desire to see sonic team take chances with these characters quite a bit, heck I would actually advocate for a classic sonic to modern sonic restructuring of modern sonic in its entirety. I think we are way overdue and taking time and doing something like that could get some more energy and hype put into the 3d section of this franchise. But I'm off point a bit, people haven't seen shadow act " normally " in years, so they would like to see him act a bit more normal that the flanderizations that have been present in the sonic media as of late. To be frank, no I DON"T want controversy, I don't want risk taking. I want good, I haven't had GOOD in years. Instead of making wild changes to shit, instead of risk taking shadow. Why don't we have good shadow first. That's kind of how I feel about sonic in general, instead of taking risks maybe focus on one thing and make it good and then expand. I don't think controversy for controversy's sake is interesting or good. How about we focus on getting good first. This isn't even getting into how, at least in terms of shadow. You can pretty much write shadow being shadow, and that's some of the most risk taking shit in sonic, because he's an oddly serious weirdo in a sea of colorful animals. And writing from that perspective has already gotten interesting results, in the comics even. Having a wild interpretation doesn't mean anything, it doesn't gain anything, its ultimately worthless unless you justify that interpretation of that character. And I don't think people arguing over your interpretation is really an indication of success or not, at least in this scenario Edit: i would like to just point out, this isn't a reference to the comic more so sonic in general. I would prefer , unless starting an entire new thing, a solid good foundation that you can expand on and you can build a fanbase and then take risks, rather than wild risk takes that might be good. Especially in regards to sonic where the latter continues to prove fruitless

    Its its like really bad. And every time I think back to " Ok maybe i'm overacting , clearly it ain't that bad. This time i'm being the big baby " and try to give a chance I go " Oh wait I read it again, its worse" . Though this is how kinda felt about the entirety of worlds unite... so at least its about one comic that's not as bad. Gonna stop myself before I start talking about how worlds unite is terrible
