    Myst got a reaction from lbyrd2 in Worst period for Sonic?   
    Apart from Rise of Lyric, Sonic has been the sole playable character in all of his mainline 3D games since 2007. That's ridiculous.
    Sega is pandering to people who don't even like Sonic in the first place by excluding the vast library of side characters, thanks to that 'Sonic's shitty friends' meme, (which was coined by people who have no interest in purchasing a Sonic game either way, not the fans who are actually purchasing the product and part of the fanbase.)
    Sega also caters to the 'Sonic was only good in 2D' crowd by needlessly shoehorning classic Sonic into Forces. He really didn't need to be there.
    Sega should stop trying to win over casual gamers who think Sonic is a joke now and was only good in the 90's. Ian Flynn is currently doing a fantastic job with IDW in my opinion, cramming in subtle references, flashbacks, winks, nods, and a wide cast of characters. Sega should be giving Sonic that same kind of love.

    I've been around this franchise since the beginning. 1995-1998 were the worst years for Sonic, period. 
    Both Sonic cartoons had been cancelled and Ken Penders was running amok with the Archie comic. 
    The 3D era had come and while Mario had a big hit with the N64, Sega had abandoned Sonic for the Saturn, with the exceptions of some rereleases (Sonic Jam) a clunky racer that looked terrible even by 1997 standards (Sonic R) and a port of 3D Blast.
    Underground came and mostly flew under the radar since Sonic's popularity was at an all-time low.
    Sonic Adventure breathed new life into the franchise in 1999 and while there were a few misteps, (Shuffle, 06, Shadow) Sonic still was going strong, thanks in part to Sonic X's popularity and the fact that Sonic was now able to reach wider audiences on the GBA, DS and GameCube.
    The second 'dark age' for Sonic in my opinion, came in 2010 with Sonic Colors. and the juvenile, goofy writing by Pontac and Graff (and the annoying new characters OrBot and CuBot) Lost World continued to go in an infantile route, pandering to younger audiences. I enjoyed the Boom TV show, though. 
    Sonic's.. In an okay spot right now. I like the IDW comics and I'm looking forward to the movie. More merchandising shows Sonic is gaining popularity again. Haven't played Mania or Forces.

    Some people are hellbent on wanting this movie to fail. It's rather sad.

    This design is really, really good. I am so hyped!
    If I was being fussy, I would still rather one eye and a bald Eggman but hey, this a is a great compromise. And I know it's Sonic and Eggman's origin story.
    Hype levels at 100% now for me!

    Despite all the controversy surrounding this movie and that that it will probably still be ass... this is actually a really good redesign - especially compared to the first few shots we had a few months ago which were merely just acceptable.
    This and the previous billboard photo leak are damn impressive showings of the lengths they went to to get this corrected. And although I think they should have done this right from the off, I gotta give credit to them for actually respecting that the fan base were right on this.
    Now, That’s not always true of an outcry. The Director Jeff Fowler was trying to see his vision through and prove to us his original version of Sonic was going to work - so I think it is very humbling for him to accept defeat on the subject and completely go for a revise. From his point of view with the lead up to the trailer and the drop, it must have been a really crappy day for him. Especially as this is his first big film - I figure that probably lead to the change as well, don’t want to start your big time career role on a dud.
    But yeah, this is great - blue arms and all - I personally think they did make the right artistic call on that one for what it’s worth.

    This is true. I think we were all expecting November. 3 months from release and the original release date of the movie. It's a pretty safe bet!
    Potentially waiting until late November is still an agonizingly long time for me though lol. (Still, at least I have Shenmue III to distract me soon...).

    A trailer for a new SpongeBob movie will be released this week by Paramount, confirming that we will not be getting a trailer for Sonic this week like so many thought.
