  1. Remember when the Sonic movie producer or whatever the hell his role is shared an article that told us to be excited for the Sonic movie, and the reasons were basically just, "C'mon guys! It's Sonic! Sonic is cool! Jim Carrey to! Also, Sonic! A-AND IT'LL BE BETTER THAN DETECTIVE PIKACHU!!"

    1. Tarnish


      Was this before or after we saw the Detective Pikachu trailer?

    2. DreamSaturn


      Shortly after the Sonic trailer dropped.

    3. Tarnish


      So the Detective Pikachu trailer was already long out by then. If he really did say it's gonna be better than Detective Pikachu, I really wanna know what drugs he's on because it must be some good stuff,

    4. Lord-Dreamerz


      Yeah he flat-out said the Sonic movie will probably be better then the Detective Pikachu movie and that everybody just needs to wait and see once the Sonic movie is released before passing judgment.

      what is it with constantly moving goalposts, gosh

    7. Tarnish


      Ah, the good old "Watch it before judging!" routine when the reception is less than steller, ignoring the fact the entire point of marketing is to sell us on the movie based on a few select crumbs of footage and info they deem the most successful of raising interest.

      And how exactly is seeing the entire movie going to fix a horrible design and bland setting, I wonder.

      If this fanbase can deduce that Sonic 4 used the Rush engine from mere seconds worth of gameplay footage I feel pretty confident that they can judge the outcome of a three minute trailer pretty accurately.

    9. Thigolf


      To be fair, some trailers out there are just horribly misguiding because Marketing teams think that a movie will sell better if they emphasize some aspects that may not even be that prominent in the movie. I still remember people getting worried about Wreck it Ralph because marketing really played up the "doody" joke and people were cautious that there might be quite a bit of potty humor in the film - which then had only that one potty-humor line in it.

      ...that being said, the trailer, interviews and basically every detail we know of the sonic movie is raising dozens and dozens of red flags so I'm pretty sure that scenario isn't very likely at all :P

  2. There are some tell-tale signs that a movie will be bad. Usually when people attached to the project have to share an article telling people to be positive about their movie, that's not a good sign.
  3. If it can be better, shouldn't it be better? Shouldn't kids get as much quality content as we demand for ourselves? Isn't making something bad just to say "Well it's for kids so it's okay for it to be bad" incredibly lazy and disrespectful towards kids?
  4. Don't you know? We need an annoying human side kick to take up most of the plot. Don't you find a middle-aged cop with a tranquilizer so relatable?
  5. Fuck Chaos Angel Act 3.

    1. TheOcelot


      My thoughts exactly.

      Oh, wait, that's the platform seqment masqurading as a stage isn't it? Yeah it's terrible.

    3. 8ther


      Is this a Mania stage?

    4. Shiguy


      That one particular enemy near the middle half of stage that snipes you right off the platform and into abyss can fuck right off.

      Music pretty bumping tho, although it's bizarre how intense it is for being on a stationary platform for a majority of the level.

      It's from Sonic Advance 3

    6. Red


      We get it, you hate Sonic Advance 3. You're coming off as a broken record with all these "I hate sadv3" statuses.

    7. DreamSaturn


      Just liveposting my experiences, friend.

  6. For the sake of my own mental health it's probably best I just not engage with certain...individuals on Twitter anymore. If you follow me on Twitter,  you likely have an idea who I mean.

  7. Slightly different. A trailer literally exists to show you, "This is why you should go see our movie". If your trailer sucks, people are far more likely to think your movie sucks.
  8. Happy birthday, my friend! I hope it's a good one!

    1. Failinhearts


      Thank you, buddy! Been going great!

  9. "Why doesn't Sega want Sonic to have a girlfriend? Is he...Is he GAY?" is such an astoundingly Ken Penders take that I'm shocked took him this long to think would sound even remotely intelligent.

    1. Lord-Dreamerz


      Almost all shounen series main characters from anime/manga/games don't have girlfriends or whatever, at least not till the series ends. Don't know why some people think Sonic not having a relationship means anything. xD

    2. JosepHenry


      Sonic should be asexual thanks ted talk


      or bi


    3. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      So he doesn't get badly written romances written by creepy perverts with moustaches is why.

    4. Nobody


      Well, seeing as how Sonic is all about freedom and going where the wind blows while being in a couple requires compromise and often close proximity, (But not always.) I'd say he simply isn't compatible with the lifestyle required for a partner.

      He's also a rambunctious teen that clearly isn't thinking about that stuff yet.

      It is indeed strange to me that some demand that a person must have a romantic interest or other. *shrug*

  10. Who the hell would write a novel length tumblr post about why they don't like Sonic Advance 3?

    Oh. I did.


  11. Remember when Sonic Mania came out and Sonic was finally getting mainstream attention for a good reason for a change? ...Can that happen again? Anything to distract from the depressing reality of this movie?
  12. “Someday... If this world finally knows true peace... If this world no longer needs weapons or wars... If we can make this world a truly peaceful place when we're older... If we can make a world where there's only laughter... Do you think we'll be able to play with Emerl again?”
    “......Yeah! Definitely!” 59976739_2094604860648187_2329620755618201600_n.jpg.41e4ec90a22402d59f6be11fb5934abb.jpg

  13. It's actually kind of fucking amazing and hilarious that Sega shamelessly slapped their logo on Rise of Lyric, Forces, Sonic Genesis, and so much other shit that they're listed in the credits for, but for this, for this one project, they want it to be absolutely clear how little they had to do with it.

      Meanwhile at Illumination Entertainment:

      "No, no, no!!"

      "I said Wario does the fart jokes, not Mario! Try and listen better, okay??"

      "And you! With that Goomba design! Do it again!! They're aren't meant to be seen with those teeth!"

      "HEY! Who told you to put (insert US pop artist) in this scene?! Get rid of it or so help me!"

  14. For as much complaining that I've done about Sonic Advance 3 these past few days, it is super satisfying to reach top speed, pull off a trick and launch yourself onto a Grind Rail successfully.

  15. Hence Iizuka's statement, he's openly admitting that he's nothing more than an advisor and god knows they've ignored feedback for this long.
  16. A company's job isn't to be honest with the quality of their products. It's to sell you those products and nothing more.
  17. Iizuka's statement can basically be "Yeah, it sucks, we know, but it's not our fault this time!"
  18. Got my ticket for Detective Pikachu!

  19. Who would write a novel-length tumblr post about why they didn't like Sonic Advance 3? Oh, right. That's exactly what I'm doing. Like a responsible adult.

  20. You might have liked it, and that's all well and good. But that's not the point. The point is, most people didn't. See: everyone on social media that was laughing at them.
  21. Because all of them were terrible. Some were less terrible than others, but all terrible nonetheless. It's not just the fans that didn't like them.
  22. If several people, including the creators of Sonic, several prolific members of the fanbase, and even a good chunk of people outside the fanbase, are telling you that your design is garbage, maybe the audience isn't the problem?
  23. Ain't it just a kick in the head that Sonic Advance 3 has some of the most awful, frustrating level design of any Sonic game, but some of the best level themes and music?

    1. Ferno
    2. Tarnish


      Eh, I found Advance 2 songs to be more catchy personally.

    3. JezMM


      I feel the quality of the themes/music drops a little in the middle of the game (Toy Kingdom has boring music for my ears, Twinkle Snow the same and repeats a trope the first two games had, and Cyber Track has alright music but again, a retread both thematically AND musically in this case).

      But the first three zones and the game's climax are amazing musically/thematically speaking for being different from the norm. I wish we had gotten a high quality OST release of the whole trilogy tbh (I know some fans have remastered the music but I mean I wanna hear everything with real instruments lol).

      Granted Sunset Hill being a Green Hill retread, music included would not fly nowadays, but back then it was cool and honestly a more unique take on the old locale than most recent efforts have been.

    4. Red


      Advance 3 was always my personal favourite of the trilogy. It's the only one I've ever been able to 100%

      I never understood where people are coming from when they claim "oh yeah sunset hill's wayyyyy more creative than anything they've done with green hill nowadays" (I don't see what makes "Green Hill at sunset" any more creative than "Green Hill with sand" but I will say it's leaps and bounds ahead mechanically and musically), but it's a great level on its own.

      But yeah, it's a shame such great level concepts are marred by such amateur level design. Even if it does get a bit better as it goes on.

    6. TCB


      Another excuse for me to say Sunset Hill Act 3 has my favorite green hill remix

  24. To make my point, I'm going to be sharing an anecdote from my childhood: I still remember getting my GBA SP. It was my birthday during Kindergarten and I got Sonic Advance 3 with it. I picked the family dinner that night as Rain Forest Cafe and when I unwrapped those I was absolutely over the moon, I was a child who loved everything about Sonic. I played it for the entire car ride home, and even a good chunk of the dinner. So much playing that the GBA SP died during its first time even being on. I don't think I got any further than Sunset Hill's hub but gosh that was such a magical night. The colorful, fun cast of characters, the diverse, creative worlds, an unmatched sense of speed, a (usually) rocking soundtrack...there's a lot to love with Sonic!
