    MetalSkulkBane got a reaction from Johnny Boy in Do the harshest critics of the Sonic franchise hurt the franchise?   
    I used to think that around 2011, maybe 2013.
    "Haha, very funny guys, How about we stop? Look, Sonic 06 was ages ago, we're doing fine now. You jerks."
    And then Rise of Lyric came out and now I'm a little jaded, Forces not sweetening things (despite me kinda liking it).
    It's sad that Sonic is punching bag of internet, something fairly recognizable that everyone can make fun of knowing the backlash will be minimal, like Star Wars prequels or Donald Trump. But how about we go 5 good games in a row, then start making demands

    Don't know, don't care.
    Two Worlds is much more bearable when I ignore it. It's possible to read dozens of issues and not think about it.

    The blue is skin, and the tan is fur. End of story.

    MetalSkulkBane got a reaction from AWild No.1 washed up gamer in "Overplaying" and the value of an initial playthrough   
    That's ... normal? What did you expect? Lock yourself with your favorite song on loop 24h and it's gonna loose some appeal.
    With that said I can't think of anything big (movie, game, book, season of a show, etc) with linear plot  that I consumed more than 3 times (although I'm certain one day I'll replay/rewatch whole Sonic franchise 4th time). There is too many things too see.

    Belle's biggest issue is that she's an extremely passive character; she's not a go-getter like Tangle, and not driven by tragedy like Whisper, and her whole mystery subplot was resolved in the second story arc she was featured in. So she's kind of has nothing motivating her right now at the moment. Being a passive-character isn't necessarily a bad thing if they have someone else to bounce off of, but Belle doesn't for the most part. She had a little something with Tails and Tangle in the last two arcs, but they haven't really followed up on that.
    And now she's essentially a plot device to push Starline into action, which isn't really an enticing role because the focus is more on Starline's actions than who Belle is.
     
     
    So Belle really just needs something to motivate her into action, and what kind of niche she can fit in. Maybe she can take up Tinker's old job in Windmill Village, in a way to carry on the legacy of the man she knew as her father and not Eggman. I dunno.

    Compare Belle to most complex robots we know. Metal Gemerl, Gizoids, Omega, Orbot.
    I love this guy (MetalFanForLive) but isn't she a little more... person? Life like? More Robot Master than Badnik?
    She's self conscious. Emotional, capable of face expressions. Doesn't rely on orders.
    Metal Sonic CAN emote, but his default is anger, cold indifferent or more anger.
    Eggman tries building weapons. Tinker tried building a daughter.

    At least Mario has consistent core. He will always live in Mushroom Kingdom, we know Toads live in there, we know Bowser lives is a neighbor in some lava scary castle, Koopa and Goomba live there too.
    Sonic lives... well he travels. Sometimes there are humans around, sometimes mobians, sometimes only little animals.
    Retcons always will leave some errors. That's kinda nature of rewriting the past.
    But there is "ups, in Spider-Man #43 we casually  mentioned his parents had a bakery, but now in #99 we introduce them as dentists"
    And then there is "So Joker was faking insanity all this time. Also Alfred was Batman's imaginary friend."
    Some holes are easier to forgive than the other, you know?

    ...because it establishes the world as a nice place worth protecting? I mean, what's the problem with it supposed to be? Sonic's world is a mostly peaceful place. It's not utopian, there's still assholes around causing trouble, but it's far from the kind of dog-eat-dog, kill-or-be-killed world the D6 come from.

    I was that kid and I don't like it.
    First step for Two World to work, it must be somehow acknowledged. As if said in a game. Show. Right now it's a bloody Schrodinger Cat.
    (If it works like in Sonic X then I still have few issues.)

    My bets are:
    1. "Don't worry about it" means "It's not worth trying to figure out because it doesn't work" 
    2. "Two Worlds" becomes more specifically two landmasses on the same planet, still separate though
    3. "Don't worry about it" means he's in the process of fixing it up to make sense

    Random question: we all know that Archie Sonic is the longest comic based  on video game, but do we know any runners ups?
    From my research
    - Both Mega Man  (Archie) i and Tomb Raider (Top Cow) had 52 issues, (both dead)
    - If you count "all comics ever made" then Tomb Raider and Street Fighter have around 100.
    - Nintendo Power was magazines with comics in it and lasted 285 issues.
     
    I'm just wondering if IDW Sonic can soon become 2nd longest comic based  on video game

    Yeah, yeah. We all know this is old cliche. Happen hundred of times, will happen again.
    Archie did, true. but also Sonic Underground, and Fleetway comics.

    1) Pleaser don't make topic "I need help". Be more precise about the subject.
    2) I'm not a moder myself, but I image altering the code of full game, even as old as Sonic 1, is work a bit too large for a favor for random person on the internet.

    MetalSkulkBane got a reaction from Mr. Ion in Greatest scripted television shows of all time   
    2010-2020 was filled with great cartoons. Gravity Falls, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Infinity Train, Over the Garden Wall, She-Ra '19, just to name the few candidates from "best ever" show.
    But my vote goes to BoJack Horseman. At first glance it looks like yet another Simpsons wanna-be, but is much more. The mix of comedy and soul crushing depressing story is something I never experienced anywhere else.

    When EVER Sonic games followed tightly from into cartoon?
    Even Sonic Boomed messed that possibility, and that would been much easier.
