    @Detective Reptiles OK, I think I see what you mean. I guess what I tried to get across is that characters lacking existing appeal or recognition shouldn't stop them from appearing in differing media and this act most often gives those characters appeal and recognition, so I just found that "not well known" argument kind of enforcing a "limbo" for the characters in question, which comes off as unfair in my eyes. But I guess that depends on the company in question and SEGA is not one of those companies that gives their lesser known characters a chance...

    That's kinda backwards logic there. The Freedom Fighters would be included because of their existing appeal, not because of getting more appeal, so they'd need to expand their base before considering a game like it. 
    Amy at least is still sort of ambiguous. Hoshino designed Amy (with very specific and personal design elements, to boot), but the Manga came out first). It might be a SatAM situation all over again where the game concept was made first but the Manga beat them to the release punch (complete with initially going with a pilot equivalent look!). Charmy...I can't say for based on what we know of the development history so far, but game Charmy is a very different beast to Manga Charmy so it wasn't as if he was just lifted from the Manga and put into a game wholesale.

    Tis a shame. I'm neutral as well and really wouldn't mind. I'd be enjoying my chocolate watching people whine and carry on about it but to be honest I'd rather see SEGA fix the characters they have first before integrating old media in if they really want to.

    @Detective Reptiles Exactly my point. The Archie Comics are limited to one territory whereas the games and tv shows are (mostly) global. If the Freedom Fighters are to become "well known", their only chance is either for the comics to go global or for them to appear in a media that is already global, the latter idea being denied by some people because they aren't well known. And that's what I'm asking: why deny these characters presence in another media because they're "not well known" when such a thing is how characters become well known to begin with? Like, Amy and Charmy started off as characters in an obscure manga, limited to Japan, but they're now well known characters because SEGA allowed them into the games. Hell, NO ONE heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy until Marvel decided to make a movie about them. I can understand any other reason for why the FF can't get into the games but I have trouble accepting the "not well known" argument for those reasons. (I hope that makes sense...)

    If Bioshock was scary back then, are you lucky you never saw him play something like System Shock
     
    that game gives me the chills

    Too bad you just missed the Steam winter sales on it, the original was only £2.
    Definitely go for it though, it's a game with a storyline that fully takes advantage of the interactive medium and it's best experienced firsthand for that reason.

    romance in this series is nonexistent - all shipping is entirely headcanon - don't stress - amy is cute as fuck  - any arguments about these topics are made of nothing and you will absolutely look like an ass by taking the time to seriously consider them as anything other than fun bullshit
    like i just did sonic collects rings and is cute
