  1. ... Why a Mephiles toy?

    1. DanJ86


      Because evil needs hugs too.


    2. Cuz



      One of the Shadow figure molds was defective, and some enterprising business man said: "Not a problem!"?

      I'll laugh if its "Blue Shadow" Mephi and not Crystal Meph.


      That'd just be all kinds of messed up.

      Was it not every 7-12 year olds' fantasy to live out the tragic murder of our blue rodent in cute dolly form? 

    7. Snowragnarok


      Infinite, a character literally designed to be hated, got a plush, so the more charismatic Mephiles would of course later get one.

      Infinite is at least a recent character. Mephiles is from the considered-by-many worst Sonic game who got literally no representation whatsoever after 06 besides a scene here and there in the comics. Like, why give him a plush over anyone else lmao.

      Where's my Solaris phase 2 plush. I'd buy that.

      Forget Mephi, what about Emerl? He's been killed off from the only spin-off game he appeared in like 18 years ago, was re-built as someone else, and somehow he's getting a toy?


      Gemerl spinning in his grave right now. WTF?

  2. That body of light is the sign of a supeIT'S ALL YOU SHADOW, standard attacks wonUNDERSTOOD on him, he eaSILVER IT'S YOUR TURN dimensions for lunch. But there shI'LL TAKE CARE OF THIS


  3. When you're hyped for a possible Sonic Colors remaster but you remember that they apparently ditched nearly the entire voice cast once again so it may have a new voice cast. 


    1. Strickerx5


      I really doubt they're redoing the voice acting. Everything we know labels this as a remaster, not a remake. My guess is that they're just adding in the German dub.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      German, French, Spanish and the others that they've been doing some Generations. More if @Jango is right. I don't think they'll redub the game. But depending on what this remaster entails, it might be necessary. 

    3. Teoskaven


      The italian voice direction for Sonic games since Generations has been questionable with VAs being miscasted at best, so i dread how they'll handle a redub of Colors with this style.

    4. N000


      Keep in mind this came from a portfolio website with a date of December 2020. Not sure how long a localisation project like this would take but it'll definitely have been completed in December 2020 assuming that date is correct in the first place. If there was any new content requiring new English voiceover as well it's entirely possible Roger and any other required outgoing cast members were contracted for a short time in order to do this and it turned out to be their final Sonic performances.

      It's part of the reason that I think this is due for announcement in the next week or two, German localisation being completed feels like it'd be quite far along in the pipeline. Admittedly I don't not game development so I'm mostly guessing.

    5. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      The slim chance it will get redubbed with the new cast does heighten the possibility of a expanded and/or retranslated, de-Pontaffied script in exchange so...



      Template Images Gallery | Know Your Meme

      Complete the trade?


      Kate Higgins did say she ain't done with Tails just yet, so it's possible this is the project she refers to


    6. Jack-al


      @Supah Berry Kate voiced Tails in Colors, but you are talking about Colleen who is the current voice, she said she's not done yet...

      It really depends on what the extra content is, if any.

      @Teoskaven I'm italian, I've listened to the dub of various games... honestly they are fine, we have a voice actor world that's very talented, yeah some things are weird though, like Amy, Eggman and even Shadow's current VAs. I don't think they are fitting although very talented in general. Claudio Moneta as Shadow does a good job though, it's the other 2 I mentioned... heh. The rest are great, I'm not convinced about Jasmine Laurenti as Rouge though maybe?

    7. Jango


      @Blue Blood regarding the stuff I heard, only text localization, not dubbing, at least not yet... 

  4. When Sonic the Hedgehog finally gets a game update and it's a Sonic Colors remaster for modern consoles


  5. so where's my sonic forces 2 at

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Probably just around the corner...

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Must be waiting for Sonic Prime to release so they'll have Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic, Boom Sonic and Prime Sonic all playable + playable Avatar. 

      SEGA are geniusssses.

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Serious thoughts; will the avatar ever return?

    4. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Eeeeeeeeh it really depends what they want to do with the franchise going onwards gameplay-wise imo. 

      Considering the Boost formula is most likely gone because god damn SEGA can't hold a playstyle for more than three games reee, I don't think the Avatar style that Sonic Forces had will return. I can see a create-a-character thing happening for a platformer but I'd really rather have the rest of the already existing cast as playable characters instead.

      What I do wonder is if the Wisps will return or not, considering Iizuka mentioned by Generations I think that the Wisps would be a regular part of Sonic's gameplay. Is Iizuka still even at Sonic Team? After Forces I'd imagine everything at Sonic Team got flipped upside down.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      There's no such thing as Sonic Team officially anymore. It's just the brand logo that's slapped on Sonic games created by SEGA CS2, and involving key staff like Iizuka and Hoshino. That's been the case for several years now. 

    6. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      SEGA lies to me once again.

      SEGA is the new Konami to me

      Well at least Konami is licensing Silent Hill to other companies (rest in peace Castlevania and Metal Gear).

    7. TheOcelot


      Sonic Forces 2 will be mobile exclusive

    8. Jango



    9. Sega DogTagz

      I'd honestly be surprised if we didn't have the create a character system back for the next game. 


      Kinda surprised they didn't already try to splice it into the spinoffs like TSR. 

  6. My reaction when SEGA takes any Sonic the Hedgehog franchise decision. 


  7. Travis is the only one left so far right? Everyone else of the main cast is gone?

    Besides Mike Pollock that is.

    1. Zaysho


      Willingham left before TSR came out and was replaced.

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Wait he's gone?

      Damn I loved his Knuckles. Haven't played TSR so didn't have a clue.

      Well guess the voice actors for the main cast are all gone. Again.

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The new guy in TSR is... some of his lines are fine, and other times they are actually legit awful. Skip to 15:34 here:

      In that little scene, Knuckle's VA sounds like he's trying way too hard with the whole tough-guy act. And Rouge's VA sounded just fine in both Generations and Forces, but her TSR performance is ghastly. At least Omochao is alright in that scene? lol

      A lot of the cast largely sound off in TSR. You can tell that their lines were given to them in the same disjointed way that we seem them presented in the cutscenes. The production values for the story are so low that I have to wonder why they even bother. 

    4. Zaysho


      @Blue Blood from what I had listened to I got the impression he was more directed to imitate Travis who was already being directed to imitate Dan Green so it just sounds really weird. It sticks out more when Papenbrook and Lindbeck got to interpret Silver and Blaze differently and they sounded better for it.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I know Silver was pretty different, but Blaze? All three of her VA's has been incredibly similar.

    6. Snowragnarok


      Even the guy who replaced Travis could be gone, too. This would leave TSR as his only performance.

    7. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Eugh that voice acting. Team Sonic Racing always felt off to me but I never saw the """"""cutscenes""""" until now.

      Feels extremely cheap. 

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The "cutscenes" in TSR are so inconsequential, so removed from the gameplay and so low quality they the game would have probably benefitted from not having them at all. The least that they could have done to improve these scenes would have been to not include a stupid whoosh sound effect each time the character portrait changes. In one of the first scenes they talk about taking a rocket to Planet Wisp so that they can enter the first race, but they're soon dotting around all seven zones from the game like it's nothing. Why add a story if it's meaningless?

      The default/normal way to start a race in story mode skips the story anyway, which is really bizarre. Like, pressing A will go straight to the race and pressing X will take you to the cutscene and then the race (Switch version). It's unusual, and suggests that the development team thought little of the story scenes.

      Some of the dialogue alone is pretty nice. I enjoy watching Sonic try to trash talk Silver only for it to go way over Silver's head and annoy Sonic in the process, or Big being the only one who isn't super racist against tanukis and the fact that he calls everyone out on their shit simply by being a nice guy. But yeah... Super cheap. Free Riders' cutscenes don't even feel as cheap as TSR's.

    9. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Even Free Riders's cutscenes had more love put to them. That game would've worked wonderfully with standard controls as an alternative without the obligatory motion controls imo. 

      What is it with Sonic and static .jpg VisualNovel-like cutscenes like come on SEGA. Sonic Rush (Understandable due to being a DS/3DS handheld series but even they had some cutscenes using the ingame models), Sonic Rivals, Sonic Free Riders, Team Sonic Racing.

    10. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I'll give Rivals a free pass because it was also a side, handheld game. Rivals 2 had full voice acting for it's static portrait cutscenes too. But there's no excusing Free Riders and TSR, even if the they budget side productions. They weren't handheld games. Even Boom F&I had proper cutscenes (but not Shattered Crystal):

      Although ngl, I actually preferred the portraits/models with text boxes in Generations 3DS to the super ugly, highly compressed cutscenes of Lost World 3DS. That game just took some of the Wii U cutscenes and cut out the rest. Not only were they incredibly ugly, but they also some random plotholes. The first time that Sonic and Zeena meet in the 3DS version, she accuses him of messing up her nails during their last encounter. 

      Rock bottom production values have been pretty common this decade.

  8. Sky Fortress Act 2 and 3 are the apex predators of Sonic music themes because they're at the top of the food chain.

    1. Strickerx5


      They are pretty fucking good. It's just too bad that the synth and them just overall being tied to Sonic 4 makes them severely overlooked a lot of the time.

  9. What's this about Shadow's character in the IDW comics being controlled by SEGA or something like that to be like Vegeta without the character development? I don't read the IDW comics but I saw a comment about that in the Pontac/Graff topic.

    1. Diogenes


      sega keeps a closer eye on the comics so that things don't spiral off in weird directions the way archie sonic did and some people don't like the direction/limitations they've imposed on how shadow is written.

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Is he too edgy as expected or what?

    3. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      It should be noted that Sega was already keeping an closer eye on Archie Sonic after the Penders Lawsuit and was calling shots on it before IDW.

  10. Konami purchases Sonic the Hedgehog and does two Pachinko cabinets and absolutely nothing else with the franchise. I see it coming at this point.

      It's borderline for the best at this point. Sonic loves going to casinos anyhow

      There are fates worse than death.

  11. With stuff like this sometimes I wonder if SEGA even knows what its doing with the franchise. So many voice acting changes, so many gameplay swaps, so many writers coming and going. Like, voice acting changes are normal in media I know but Sonic's been through like 6 voice actors in 25 years and I sometimes wonder if it's due to not finding the voice actor or if it's a matter of some kind of "Well your time's up, bring in some new blood" mentality which is kind of mindboggling to think about to me. Sonic's lack of persistent consistency pisses me off to no end.
  12. Love how the first game-related news we get in five years is Roger leaving the role. Grand.

    Wait what do you mean that Sonic Forces released five years ago. 

    1. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Oh right Team Sonic Racing was a thing.

      God damn when's my mainline Sonic title SEGA come on. I'm starting to feel like a Silent Hill fan with all this news drought.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Green Hill is looking more like Silent Hill now

      Silent Hill Zone

  13. I got recommended from songs from Evil Within and damn they're great. Thinking about playing them but I'm not too knowledgeable on horror games besides Resident Evil or Silent Hill, are they good games?

  14. If a true Sonic Generations 2 happens someday I hope they remake the Solaris boss fight. That boss was really good. 

    Plus gotta say I love Solaris. Its design was really nice. 

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Only if they can find a way to justify a way for non-Super Sonic to fight that thing. Of all the excuses Perfect Chaos had, for one he couldn't fly.
