  1. Being a fighting game, EVERYONE's hyper-aggressive in it. Faulting the characters for it feels to me a bit like faulting characters in a racing game for wanting to solve everything with racing. EDIT: Really, these arguments are really sort of bizarre to me because it feels like everyone's coming from an alien world with alien versions of these games where context doesn't exist. Like, she didn't corner Sonic to make her marry him in SA2, she bantered a bit before rescuing him regardless. She wanted to beat him in Heroes, but as it turns out cutscenes exist to facilitate gameplay and EVERYONE wanted to beat everyone so we could have those bossfights. Yet it feels it's only with Amy that people insist in not taking things like that in context, ignoring stuff like Espio wanting to steal Cheese instead of asking "is that your Chao, little girl, because we're rescuing Chao and if you just found that one that might be one of the Chao we're rescuing" but making sure every single little exaggerated-for-gameplay Amy moment or comedic short-tempered moment sticks around and is never forgotten, overshadowing everything else she was doing. And now here's the result. She's been turned into Minnie Mouse but responsible. She spends Lost World just going "oh me oh my", she spends Forces and IDW doing leadership stuff, she's made into the bossy almost-"Karen" of the group in Sonic Boom for laughs. As usual, Sega overcorrecting things, and then patting themselves for it (you seen that Sega guy say how proud they were of how Amy now isn't a damsel in distress? Despite her not having been so for like 20 years?). But I can't help but be frustrated because their overcorrections are addressing complaints that by and large shouldn't exist in the first place. Hope we can eventually get a fun energetic optimistic lovable Amy back.
  2. do tss writers get paid for writing or something

    why're you putting stupid clickbait like "hur hur movie sonic best design ever" on the site

    you're not kotaku

      Polkadi~☆

      i can confirm that they don’t get paid

      it’s hip to imply your opinions are objective fact, y’know

      Opinion Pieces are things and TSS has had plenty in the past.

       

      I mean it's definitely clickbaity but opinion pieces, if they differ from the common opinion, are kind of bound to come off that way automatically.  And I mean the title does say "might be", it could've well said "is" if they really wanted to go full clickbait.

      I mean, at least The Spin articles gave me the idea it was an opinion piece, and I could approach them with an open mind. This article rubbed me a little wrong, though.

      It's his opinion and he's entitled to it but it's poorly-argued and sloppily written. I felt embarrassed reading it.

      Full disclaimer I didn't read the article because they lost me with the entire premise, but it seemed obvious that it was an opinion piece and not for me so I just like... moved on lol

      (I will say only the writer knows whether they did it for the sake of writing a provocative article or whether they truly love the design more than any others, so if it's the former, shame shame shame and I withdraw my defense lol)

      The main thing that kinda irked me was when they said game sonic's gloves were huge when tbh its just his hands in general that really are just that big, along with his feet

    8. Sean

      It's ultimately a lot of made-up complaints about the game design (ex. getting bothered over Sonic's shoes never getting dirtied in the games, you might as well complain that the toys in Toy Story aren't covered in grime, peeled paint, and fingerprints for 95% of the film) and making an easy target out of the old movie design, neither of which correlate with how that makes the Hesse design the best one.

      I fully disagree with the article, but getting your knickers in a twist because you think it's being presented as fact instead of an opinion piece is really dumb.

    10. Wraith

      Wraith

      how did you guys even find the strength to read past the title

    11. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Maybe this is dumb, but honestly I would prefer if they just put "Opinion:" at the start of the title. I know it's obviously opinion, but it would slightly soften the blow of the article being what it is, at least for me.

      No, we don't get paid.

      Yes, it's an attention-grabbing headline.

      It's also probably his actual opinion, so (to those who are being mean about it) please simmer down. I don't even agree with him, but it's been labeled as such, and he's entitled to it. 

    13. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      The writing staff is entirely voluntary. We do not get compensated for writing baity headlines or anything, so I just wanted to put that idea to rest. 

      If we did, things could get pretty messy. 

    14. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      @Monkey Destruction Switch Yeah, no. It's a subjective matter. Putting "opinion" in the headline to offset whatever disagreement you might have is unnecessary. Soften what blow, exactly? 

    15. Wraith

      Wraith

      it's nothing personal against the writer so many personalities in this fanbase are just hot take machines so when i see more of that brain just shuts off

    16. Tornado

      Tornado

      It would certainly offset the blow of the atrocious title.

  3. hey guys, dunno if you're checking SAGE this year, but if you do, hope you try and enjoy the Sondro Gomez demo we did!

  4. While there can be a point made that the references for reference's sake aren't adding anything beyond "I clapped when I saw thing" and aren't funny for kids who won't get it, they're not really the intended audience here. Nor, probably, is a lot of this forum tbh. This is very clearly a bunch of people who were kids and hardcore into the Sonic fandom online circa 2002, the Archie stuff, etc, and are taking the chance to just rave endlessly about it. Hence AoSTH references, Sonic Adventure references, a cover from the Death Egg minisseries from Archie, etc. It's Ian JQ and friends reminiscing about when they'd go and draw Shadow on dA in 2002 while wondering if the Shadow in the screenshots for Sonic Heroes is real or not and wondering when Knuckles will stop being green in the comics while posting on Penders' forums and making fancomics on Team Artail.
  5. gotta say it feels grand to stop by after a few years and see people realise what I was saying years ago when saying the freedom fighters format and evil eggman writing was unsustainable for the book
  6. I can get people wanting Eggman to win and whatever What I don't understand is why want this now It's a zombie story Eggman pretty specifically has to lose unless you want year 3 to be 12 issues of zombots going "uuugh" endlessly In this specific story Eggman very obviously has to lose and I'm not sure how this isn't pretty clear
  7. You get what I mean though EDIT: Harder to tell due to the quality and also the fact it's sketchy kid drawing, but that pink apartment building next to the Tails house might be meant to be the pink building Amy lives in in Battle, too
  8. Yes, but neither game had Tails' Tails-shaped House like Battle did- and check what's in that Central City drawing
  9. That map's already got more lore than visible at first- pretty sure "Central City" there means Sonic Battle.

      This is the only Sonic Movie fanart so far to make me think "yeah I want this"

      I doubt that robots will even be in the movie at this point.

      The movie design would be really cool (if a bit more stylized) in my eyes if it was meant to be in some really nightmarish awful universe where stuff like the above illustration happened all the time. 

  11. (isn't there a SAGE thread?)

      Even if there isn't, there's no harm in pimping up your own work. Azoo's already done it with that Sonic Isle.

  12. at the risk of ruining a streak of jokes since the last few pages show what people'd think are jokes being taken as seriously as possible so there's an excuse to be unhappy, the blob feet are an art style. common in both 1920s cartoons and old cartoony anime. they're not literal blob feet, they're depicted with as many toes as needed- normally that's none, but if wearing a slipper, then one toe, etc.
  13. I can get not liking it, but the setup of the two worlds is really not confusing or inconsistent. Hell, Sonic X has taught you how it works for over a decade now, just the games' version has it be easier to go between worlds. There's a human world, and a cartoon animals world. It's not timelines, it's different planets/dimensions, just like Blaze's world. And there's a Modern Sonic timeline, and since Generations, a Classic Sonic timeline.
  14. There's not enough jobs to confirm literally everyone already. Four pencillers, one per issue, plus a colourist and a writer, and the guy who made the first teasers. That's what's been confirmed. Maybe issue five is Skelly, maybe not.
  15. She has a punching tail bruv she'd just stick it on the shotgun like bugs bunny and you'd get blasted, bad tactic
