    Hiki got a reaction from Miragnarok in Has the "Sonic's sh*tty friends" mentality been a detriment to this series?   
    I have the feeling that the reasoning SEGA has for pushing other characters to the side is more that they don't want people to find other characters to be cooler than Sonic. At least... when it comes to 3D games is how it seems. The CaC is an example of how SEGA doesn't want others to be as cool, or cooler than Sonic. Remember how limited our choices were with the CaC? I'm pretty sure I had heard that the reasoning behind how few options there were was because they didn't want the CaC to take the spotlight (Feel free to fact check this). I'd say that the cause of Sonic-focus in 3D games is because Sonic is seen as uncool nowadays. His personality certainly doesn't help with this problem, considering that Sonic keeps making dad jokes all the time. He had become so bland an uninteresting, whereas in Mania, he still has an actual fun and cool personality. Even if the gameplay is good now, SEGA can't bear to add other characters in for personality and story reasons. Sadly, SEGA doesn't seem like they're going to give up the kiddy, faux-Mario-esque Sonic any time soon. Why? They're stuck in their own little bubble, caring instead what the critics think, rather than what the fans want.

    I shouldn't touch on this too much, really I know better, but asides from not seeing the SonElise romance as a two way thing, I've seen more blatant fictional scenarios that could be considered bestiality than SonElise. My primary example though will always be from the fighting game series BlazBlue. I mean just consider
    This human mage

    married this cat

    and this is their daughter

     
    Now I'm not trying to show any support for the subject, but consider that this franchise came out after 06 and things like the SonElise romance helped destroy the Sonic franchise's reputation and they still bothered to use this as a key plot point for their franchise and the three of them are all very popular characters even before they were playable. So arguably, when handled well it can be presented well enough to it's target audience without making a mess of things like with Sonic. That said though, I'm of the opinion that their should have been nothing but platonic friendship between Sonic and Elise in the first place so me getting involved in this debate is kind of a messy thing anyways. But I guess I can't help myself some days as even on the old SEGA Forums I took the time to point this out at least once, and no matter what anyone tells me there is a lot more bestiality going on with these BlazBlue characters than anywhere with Elise trying to play Prince Charming or the Princess and the Frog. I mean if you want to make an argument in this case since in both Sonic and BlazBlue the animal characters are sentient and aware of the own actions and even consenting in the case of BlazBlue, the predatory angle on Elise's part might be the route to go. Honestly I can't believe I typed that but might as well see this through since I got started in the first place.

    I think we should drop the whole “this series is for children” because that really comes off as ignorant (for lack of a better word) of children series that do the exact same thing—it amazes me people use that reasoning for Sonic, and yet Beauty and the Beast is a classic. Nevermind that it isn’t just children giving their inputs on it.
    Whether for humor like Roger Rabbit, or done straight like BatB, it’s been around in children’s works long before Sonic tested the waters.
    Not defending SonicxElise, because that was handled very badly. But people really need to grow up and stop playing dumb on that part in particular. Really telling and ironic that it’s the adults that are acting childish whereas kids who see it aren’t going to give anywhere near a damn about it by contrast.

    Hiki got a reaction from Blacklightning in We should be careful how we approach reviewing Sonic Forces   
    All I know is SEGA's EXTREMELY stupid when it comes to feedback. I was never really in the Sonic fanbase for all that (heck, I wasn't really involved until 2013.), so I apologize for seeming a little uneducated when it comes to things back in that time frame. What I was saying is just make it as known as possible what we want by getting especially onto them about it.

    Hiki got a reaction from Pinkolol16 in Most overhyped sonic game   
    One game whose popularity I will probably never come to understand is Colors. As much as I want to enjoy it, I just can't. The gameplay is so dull and boring that it's near impossible for me to just enjoy it without it feeling like a chore. I swear this game is about as hollow as a New Super Mario Bros game, and that's saying alot.
    Another thing is that this game started the Sitcom Sonic Era, where we only get Sonic, Tails, Eggman, and his bumbling minions that tell bad jokes that would appeal to six years and under. This also started the cycle of Sonic games not being memorable enough for me to give a damn about them. Games before 2010 have stuck with me for a looooong long time, but everything after that is forgettable. I didn't remember Colors until after I played it a few weeks ago, and even still it's phasing out of my memories. Also, where's the energy? I swear we lost all the energy the series had when Colors came along, yet the game is so highly praised, and I really don't understand the reasoning for it at all.
    But in the end, those are all just my thoughts. If you took the time to read this, then thanks. It means alot to me to know my words are getting out there.

    Hiki got a reaction from Inkarnate in Sonic X discussion   
    Yeah. It's different enough for me to make an entire campaign dedicated to getting the show released in the uncut format.
    When 4kids got their hands on the show, they definitely made alot of changes, dumbing it down for young kids in the process. Some of the jokes in the Japanese version are funnier, season 3 is like a shonen anime in Japanese, the soundtrack is completely different, and there were alot of deleted scenes that 4kids removed.
    If you want accurate subs, but don't have a Hulu subscription, they actually have it on Anime Planet for free. Has ads, yes, but it's still free.

    So I finally had enough of Cartoon Network's mismanagement decisions, including decisions related to this show, and wrote a thing.

    I may actually consider getting Mania on the Switch as well as the Xbox One. Since I'll be getting the Switch much later, I'll be getting the Xbox One version first so I can have Mania sooner, then I'll get it on the Switch just to have a portable version I can play everywhere. I guess you could call me a "Sonic Maniac." XD

    Does this post count?
    Anyway, I started watching this really cool anime called THE UNLIMITED Hyobu Kyosuke (or UNLIMITED Psychic Squad in the US.), and damn am I glad to have found the song "Break Your Destiny!" I was obsessing over the show even before I watched it, and that's saying something!
    I 100% completed ShTH, SA2, and now I'm gonna 100% Sonic '06.
    Sonic Boom season 2 has started, and two brand new Sonic games have been announced. It's gonna be great!
    I also found out that Gravity Rush is getting a sequel, which is amazing! That game was alot of good fun for me, so when I found out about GR2, I was just like "YOSH YOSH YOSH YOSH YOSH!!" XD
    Things have been going good for Project Drive (the campaign in my signature) as well. I got a new editor for the Sonic X Uncut Facebook page, and now it has over 290 likes!
    As for personal matters, there's been nothing much going on. Just the same ol' same ol'.

    For gameplay, I know it's very unlikely, but I'd really like the Adventure style to return. That style just felt less linear, and the levels felt more open to me.

    The fetish art isn't scaring me, but fetish art in Ken Penders' ugly artstyle is just horrendous. There could've beem better choices of artists that he could've commissioned, and he chose the one with one of the ugliest artstyles for Sonic. Why?

    Hiki got a reaction from MightyRay in Sonic Mania (August 15th 2017, Christian Whitehead, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch) - The New Classic   
    If they make a Sonic Mania 2, the main thing I would like to see a focus on new stages. Mania's brand new stages look really good so far, and I would definitely like to see them focus on that. Even bringing back scrapped stages would be a neat little idea, like how they did Mirage Saloon Zone.
    Something I would like, but isn't really necessary is adding another character. Amy would be the best candidate for that. If they do add Amy, I would really like to see them improve her gameplay to kind of make her play like a Classic Sonic character, but with her own unique abilities like Tails and Knuckles have.
    The use of cutscenes like how they were in Sonic 3 and Knuckles would be a neat addition to Mania 2. With how Mania's animation is so nice, and full of life, they could do alot with cutscenes in a possible sequel.
    DLC. I don't know if there will be DLC in Sonic Mania, but if they don't, it would be a great addition to Mania 2.

    I thought they were aiming for a PG-13 rating with a darker story tone. Unless that's considered family-friendly to them.
    I honestly don't think we have to worry about a Smurfs or Chipmunks route. They are completely different than Sonic.

    Now that I think about it, what if the new character is Classic Knuckles? He hasn't been used since in any Modern Sonic game, and we didn't get to see him in Generations. He's new enough for Sonic Team to say he is a new character, but old enough to where they aren't being too risky.
    I would wonder how his personality would be if he was in there.

    I don't think they should completely remove the story and dialogue, but instead, they should make all that stuff optional. I remember playing Shadow the Hedgehog (probably a poor example, but the only one I have), and I tried to skip cutscenes, but I couldn't. I was forced to watch cutscenes I didn't wanna rewatch (my game crashed in the middle of Westopolis, so I couldn't actually skip the cutscene I watched.).
    What I think is that there should be an option to turn off the in-game voices like Mad Convoy was talking about, AND the ability to skip cutscenes, or heck, even turn them off altogether.
