  1. 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

    1. Polkadi~☆


      i can confirm that they don’t get paid

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

    2. JezMM




      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.

    3. Polkadi~☆


      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


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

      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

      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


      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


      It would certainly offset the blow of the atrocious title.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Yes, but neither game had Tails' Tails-shaped House like Battle did- and check what's in that Central City drawing
  8. 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.

    3. Osmium


      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.

      ace, want to see if there was anything posted on kyle and lucy

      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. If we tell you a third time, will you just ignore it a third time to complain a third time that this cartoon hedgehog's status quo is too complicated and ask a fourth time for someone to explain to you a fourth time how it works so you can ignore it a fourth time and complain a fourth time and ask for a fifth time?
  14. Jesus christ you people are grabbing a tangled wire and then tangling thirty more wires into it and complaining it doesn't make sense. There's two worlds. Neither are realistic. They are separate but contact between the two is relatively easy. Games that happen in places with mostly humans, happen in Human World. Games that happen with mostly animal people, happen in Sonic's World. Rouge works for GUN in human world. Echidnas lived in human world in the past. Floating Island goes anywhere it wants. Chaos Emeralds go anywhere it wants. Classic Sonic is different timeline. Again, I get thinking the setup is superfluous. But each and every question is answered in like, five words. It's really not that complicated. As for why it happened at all in the first place, thank some 15 years of western communities loudly complaining "bluuh humans suck get them out where's Mobius".
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. She has a punching tail bruv she'd just stick it on the shotgun like bugs bunny and you'd get blasted, bad tactic
  18. They're not giving you answers because there aren't answers to give. Sega owns the characters but probably isn't interested in using them right now. But they may allow IDW to use them in the future. Or they may not. IDW can't come and say "we're not using these characters now but maybe some day" any more than they have already. If they start going on specifics, it won't calm people, it'll just get more rabble rabble "why are you saying you're not using Sally now if you say you can use her maybe in the future? Use her now!!!"
  19. "IDW defenders/Archie-forever-fans" stop stop it I know it's inevitable there'll be more idiotic labelling and factions but have some self-esteem and honour and don't start it yourself As for "IDW was misguiding people to make them think it was Sally why else would they do this" have you considered that thanks to the mandate hysteria, a lot of people thought there wouldn't be new characters at all? Have you considered that doing a hype reveal for Tangle wasn't about tricking people into thinking it's Sally but confirming "yes, this is based on the games but we'll still have new characters" for all the people panicking about "THE MANDATES SAY SONIC ONLY!!!!!!"
  20. Same way the vessel for the Mafuba was, Zen'oh will go "OO THAT'S COOL". I imagine so, at least.
  21. Infinite was apparently basically just a vessel for the Ruby. When Eggman put the Ruby to be fully controlled by his robot, Infinite is implicitly killed/erased, hence him going "I can still fight!" before disappearing and being recalled.
  22. man, the piano tune and nice visual touches after the game's beat are nice. This game has some very good touches. Wish they were in a better game.
  23. for a moment I hoped they'd at least go creepy cool and have it be a robot beating heart but no, it's just the nega wisp armour but white
  24. goddang it the music on this level sounds like a hilarious edgy nightcore AMV remix of this of all things
  25. You see the white city in the giant stretched Infinite screenshot on this page? That's Metropolis.
