  1. In a way, there already is an evil Sonic. However, I think you probably mean in the game universe instead, which I can totally see the evil Sonic being very different compared to Scourge. Since Sonic and by extension Scourge, are very different in order vs chaos compared to game Sonic, the in-game evil Sonic would be greatly different than a guy who just takes over the world. It's a nice trope, but it's also easy to screw up.
  2. Mobius is not a state or country, but was a name for the "future" earth, so your question is like asking for the capital of Earth. Unless you're REALLY focused on having some kind of capital, (which I don't know if there is a large amount of information for, if relevant to the stories cities aren't "capitals") I'd suggest ignoring that detail and just go forward with the story altogether.
  3. I probably am over thinking it, just haven't seen much talk about the subject, so thanks for the differing opinion. While on the subject on costumes, I know I shouldn't expect people to know obscure stuff, but if Sonic-man were to ever come back, I hope his costume ( or more costumes the better) is based around this guy from the end of Michael Jackson's Bad. That would be awesome.
  4. I've been debating whether I should start a topic on a subject that is kinda related to this, but I'll just leave some thoughts here. I've read about what some people have said in the thread, which leads me to ask why some of the female characters need more clothing on them? (I'm not talking about different clothing designs, but things like the character basically begin covered by clothing) There seems to be two design philosophies when designing characters in the series: one gender has clothes, and the other doesn't. Basically all of the male characters are naked, and all of the female characters are clothed in some way( Well, off the top of my head, only Charmy and Eggman are the only ones who have clothing, but we're all grateful for that later). I understand that some character designs are needed because it can be easy to misinterpret a characters gender because of lack of "gender detail," but I'm still bewildered. I'm not going to say anything about her character, but I've been wondering why we haven't gotten character designs "like" Sally who has also been naked. While I dislike acknowledging a hive-mind mentality, I bet most of you have also seen people complain about Sally's design just because she is naked, and needs to be fully dressed like the others; so I don't understand why part of this fanbase partakes in this sexist thought, as this "subconsciously" segregates the two genders, and leads to a "bad" kind of contrast in design overall. I realize that the Sonic series isn't the only one that has to deal with this subject (maybe there are some background reasons of why they were designed this way, but I haven't seen anything),but I felt like mentioning it.
  5. The purpose of the commerical was to make Mario seem like a dorky mamas boy kind of character, while Sonic was the kind of cool where he'd Sparta kick a bar door open, flash open his thumbs Fonzie style with fire coming out of them, and then all of the jukeboxes would then play "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Essentially, in the 90s, having "attitude" was great for your marketing campaign, as those characters "rebelled against authority" and other kind of stupid crap in that era, or in North America at least; that video was a product of that kind of marketing, along with many others that boosted Sonic's popularity in the states for making Sonic seem like a "cool" alternative to "old and dorky" Mario.

    Bosses.

    Pretty much all Sonic games are forgiving compared to other "hardcore" series, but that doesn't make them "bad." While Demon's Souls proves that having a hard difficulty would not halt game sales and reception, I would have to say that the easiness of Sonic's games have been a large factor in his success. As many other people here can tell you, Sonic's games are intended to be replayed, because even if they are easy to get into and beat, the "real" challenge is mastering the games themselves. You should also keep in mind that although the phrase has been used wrongly in certain situations, the Sonic series is one that also has to be open to children, which means that the series overall difficulty is usually lower than even other series; however, while one can "beat" something, a lot of people can tell you how much satisfaction they can get for getting their initial Eggmanland time from 50min+ to 20min-, and then improve even further, as there are plenty of situations like that in the franchise. These are things that makes the series one can participate in, but satisfies and rewards the player for their dedication. With that out of the way, I'm going to to try and recall what bosses I had problems with, mostly when I was a kid. Sonic 1- I remember that I used to get stuck at Springyard boss a lot because I wasn't good enough. I don't remember lab much, but I wouldn't doubt if I had issues. I remember that I had difficulty with the final boss, what with the crushing and being too stupid to see the size difference between the pink balls. Sonic 2 - Metropolis zone is obligatory, good thing I had my little bro for that boss :x. For the longest time, I sucked at the Wing Fortress boss room, but thank you practice. Silver Sonic was also hard, but it took me years to even understand how to understand how to begin hurting the final, even today, I still have some trouble hitting the weakspot while it is walking. Sonic 3 - Because this was the easiest of the classic series, this is the game I had the most practice in, however, I still remember some issues. For the longest time, in Sonic 3 Vanilla, the final boss of that game was my bane, as I wasn't good enough of a player to beat him. Sonic CD - Metal Sonic, even today, can whup you if you make too many mistakes, and because I mostly got to play the Gamecube version, that happened a lot. But even after beating the game and going back through it, its one of the more difficult bosses to get great times in that makes you feel like you were REALLY fast (or maybe that's just me). Sonic 3D Blast - I don't really enjoy this game, but I played it about a year ago and was stuck on the boss rush, so I gave up and haven't tried it again. Sonic 2GG - This game was cruel; the game being a bully and beating you up, and then you apologizing to the game for being beaten up kind of cruel. One day, I decided to watch JezzMM (I apologize if I got the spelling wrong, I should be sleeping :/) play through the game from some videos on Youtube, and I saw a man in shining armor ride an azure stallion crushing everything in this path, which left me in awe. So one day, from this inspiration, I decided to play through the game myself and finally try to beat the first boss in the game; it was difficult, but I managed to beat the boss that had haunted me for years since I was a mere boy!
  7. He managed to work it in, but it works differently in an interesting way.
  8. I haven't really been paying attention to gameplay trailers since I'm not trying to spoil anything for myself; but with this trailer I am liking that the world seems more big and open.
  9. ALWAYS bet on Big. Anyways, while looking through some shows I watched when I was a kid; I watched some of the Earthworm Jim animated series and decided to look up some of the voice-acting credits. I already knew that Dan Castellaneta was Jim, but I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Psycrow was voiced by Jim Cummings :x . Man, my respect for Jim's work only goes up and up.
  10. Cool lesson of the day for me. As for Tails Adventures, the chaos emeralds in that game were collected in the same manner as other ordinary items in that game, but more "hidden" since they weren't needed for the story, but still valuable since they gave you additional hit points and flight.
  11. They already have a collection of Sonic games and more, for the HD consoles at least. http://en.wikipedia....mate_collection http://en.wikipedia....Mega_Collection although it is older, it has a lot of other games the top doesn't have; so it could also could be viable to what you're talking about. I haven't checked to see if it is works with the ps3 version, but the xbox one I have unfortunately doesn't work for the 360.
