  1. Don’t know much about this guy aside from the fact that his Ian Flynn hateboner centric videos are always in my recommendations.
  2. It’s even more jarring considering that it came out right after Heroes which was one big cheesefest with that power of teamwork crap. I fondly remember this and Heroes being the first Sonic games I played, so the tonal difference was shocking to say the least.
  3. Shadow The Hedgehog was a decent game at best. I have it above the likes of 06, Boom, and Forces. I can definitely see why people hate it since the idea of a Sonic game with realistic guns is beyond stupid, but I think the game does a good job with the variety of weapons you can use. Plus the levels are fun enough for me to get a lot of enjoyment out of it. My problems with the game comes from how it functions sometimes mainly with how Shadow controls. The guy feels like he has butter on his shoes, so it can be really easy to fall off a cliff or platform. Even with slippery controls, it didn’t bother me too much. I also really like the multiple endings and the ability to choose (in some ways) how your adventure goes, and have each decision impact which one you got. Not gonna lie, I got a good laugh out of some of the endings. Particularly the ones where Shadow just becomes a straight up villain and it’s accompanied by that hilariously bad laugh of his. The story is a weird one too, not only because it takes itself waaay too seriously for a game where an amnesiac cartoon hedgehog is running around with firearms and swearing, but because it’s not well written at all. Despite that, I can’t help but laugh at absurdity of everything. I’d put the story in the “it’s so bad it’s good” category. The music in here definitely fits with the tone and setting that the game was trying to go for. It has a lot of that 2000s grunge rock and even some heavy metal. I Am All Of Me and the Magna-Fi version of All Hail Shadow are two soundtracks that stand out enough for me to put it in my list of the best vocal songs from this franchise.
  4. The reputation of the Sonic games will continue going doing the shitter unless the people in charge change their ways. I don’t see any reason for me to have any ounce of faith in SEGA since that track record of theirs isn’t that great. Like, I’m not gonna stop playing Sonic if the next one turns out to be another mediocre mess, but I’m sure as hell am going to continue keeping my expectations lower than dirt for future Sonic games.
  5. Welp, might as well give my own dream cast. Sonic- Josh Keaton Tails- Kate Higgins Amy- Lisa Ortiz Knuckles- Johnny Young Bosch Shadow- Yuri Lowenthal Rouge- Megan Hollingshead Omega- Crispin Freeman Cream- Michelle Ruff Big- Kyle Herbert Chaotix- Current voices Silver- Todd Haberkorn Blaze- Michelle Ruff Eggman- Mike Pollock
  6. That’s true, but that’s not the point I’m trying to make here. Whether they used the Classic designs or not, Mania would still be a commercial success just like any other Sonic game.
  7. Hmm fair point. Sonic Mania’s reception wouldn’t be any different if it involved the Modern cast so you’re right.
  8. I always treated Classic Sonic as nothing more than a previous design. So I guess you could say that I don’t have that much of an emotional attachment to the design or aesthetics. It’s rather ironic because Mega Collection plus one of the first Sonic games I played as a kid. When he was first revealed in Generations, my reaction was among the lines of “Oh that’s Sonic’s 1990’s design”. I definitely do think it was a huge mistake to split up Modern and Classic. The fanbase is already split up like shattered glass on the floor and treating these two like they’re different characters was not only downright stupid, but it also didn’t help with the divisions in the fandom. If they just abandoned Classic outright, I wouldn’t care all that much. The problem lies within the fact that there’s a lot of people that prefer the Classic designs and aesthetics, so there’s not much SEGA can do besides keeping Modern and Classic separate.
  9. Quite frankly, I’ve gotten so numb to the whole “Sonic bad lol” thing that’s been around for years. A lot of that has to do with a good amount of the scrutiny towards the franchise being well deserved. Compare that to how I was when I was a kid where the numerous “Sonic must die” articles or the hate Sonic gets in general on the internet would piss me off.
  10. That’s very unfortunate. He may not have been my ideal voice for Sonic, but I think it’s impressive that he was able to voice the character for that long, ten years to be exact.
  11. Should SEGA listen to us? I mean, in some ways they should but at the same time, who the hell are they gonna listen to? This fandom has so many different types of fans that there's no way that they can try to please us all at once and it working out in the end. Case in point, Sonic Forces. That game brought back the Boost gameplay for the Modern fans, Classic Sonic for the Classic fans, and a return to a more serious story for the Adventure games. It's beating a dead horse at point but I really don't care. We all know how much of a half baked mess that game turned out to be by trying to please everyone. It feels like no matter what SEGA does, a section of the fandom will be disappointed. They listened to older/Classic fans and critics a decade ago by removing Sonic's friends, humans, the serious tone. But oh wait, the kids who loved those games are all grown up now. They're now in the same position that the Classic fans were in years ago except they want those elements that defined 2000s era Sonic to return. It's like a cycle because it won't be long until the same thing happens to the next generation of fans. So should SEGA listen to us? I have no idea at this point.
  12. The biggest and most important thing about this possible Adventure remake for me is that I’d want anyone but Sonic Team making it. Developers like Vicarious Visions and Toys For Bob, the ones responsible for the Crash Bandicoot remastered trilogy and fourth sequel are some I can come up with off the top of my head.
  13. There definitely needs to be some rethinking at SEGA on what direction they want to take this franchise. They should first of all, stop trying to please everyone because when you have a fanbase as fractured as Sonic's, it's literally impossible to please everyone since we all like Sonic for different things and each have our own vision for where we want this series to go. A focused direction is what this franchise should strive to achieve. SEGA's has had that same old "throw everyone at the wall and see what sticks" mentality for far too long and it hasn't been helping them in the long run.
  14. I sincerely hope this new cartoon finds a balance between having comedic moments and more serious/intense scenes without leading too much towards either side. That’s pretty much the tone that any media of Sonic should strive for, whether it’s the games, comics, etc.
  15. The best thing to do is to keep your expectations VERY low.
