  1. Mechano is going to love Encore Mode's true ending lol.

  2. Knuckles punches and then peaces out. Seems legit.

  3. The last Mario game that came out had you possessing a T-Rex using Mario's Hat, you need to be quiet with this.
  4. Ya know, I have to wonder if people actually do not like Broly...or they're just bandwagon on TeamFourStar's negative impressions on the character.

    1. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      Plenty of people like Broli. I imagine the people who hate him are a minority. 

    2. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      I don't hate the guy, but you do have to admit that his backstory is amazingly dumb. I can't really blame anyone for hating him just for that tbh.

    3. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      His back story is very Toriyama, despite Toriyama not being involved. The Legendary Super Saiyan hates the main character because he made him cry as a child. Brilliant.

    4. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      I really dislike the character. It isn't because of DBZA or TFS.

      I just can't like Broly.

    5. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      I mean, sure...his backstory IS stupid. But like...it's Dragon Ball. Is having a shitty backstory really the hallmark for the amount of hate he gets?

    6. Jovahexeon Pirate Ridley

      Jovahexeon Pirate Ridley

      Broly is a special kind of Dragon Ball stupid. Like,  down to his motivation,  I tend to find myself cringing at how bad a character he is. 

    7. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      I hear less people get angry about Jiren who was the focal point of the entire final arc of Super and had a WAY dumber backstory than Broly who was only in 2 non canon movies.

    8. Wraith

      Wraith

      People hate him on some tryhard shit

      There are too many dragon ball characters that are as dumb or dumber than broly

      The important part is if he brings good fights to the table and he does

    9. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      He's a big dumb oaf with the personality of a wet paper towel and the depth of a puddle. And yet the dude is the villain of three and soon to be four friggin' Dragon Ball movies despite the fact that he has nothing to offer other than a face to punch.

    10. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      Broly is nowhere near as dumb as the universe 6 Saiyans and ESPECIALLY not as dumb as Kale

    11. MegasonicZX

      MegasonicZX

      Broly is just kind of underwhelming for me not because of the backstory (which I just find funny if anything) but because he doesn't do much besides beat the crap out of the characters in the most uninteresting dominating way until being beaten because the plot dictates he does. He just isn't as interesting as most other DB villains despite having every right to and I question why I liked him so much as a kid.

    12. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I don't hate Broly. I just find him overused, especially compared to someone like Janemba and especially Cooler.

      Broly's original movie was fine. His backstory sucked but his beserker personality and his cocky arrogance and boasts were pretty cool too. The further two movies revived him twice, reduced his personality more and more to the point Budokai 3 literally had his entire dialogue be nothing but "KAKAROT". 

      Personally, I think he has potential if reworked, but I still would've preferred Janemba, Cooler and Gogeta getting into a canon movie over him.

  5. Kuzu the Boloedge

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    Broly's design is supremely unique since the only other character who has a similar design was Trunks as an USSJ. Besides that, his fighting style is incredibly unique being a combination of a wrestler and an all out brawler. In a series that focuses on martial arts, that's major. His personality sucks sure, but I don't agree that Broly is "everything wrong with Dragon Ball" and feel like people have been listening too much to Teamfourstar and their opinions of the character. So I'm curious on what Toriyama does with him even if I don't care much for Broly himself.
  6. I am fucking crying, Broly is canon. 2018 is the best year.

      I KNOW!!!

      Who said this wouldn't be entertaining? The meltdown fireworks alone are more entertaining to me than most of Super

    2. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      I still don't understand what everyone's obsession with canon is. 

    3. dbzfan7

      dbzfan7

      The fact this is a literal cock slap to the "Muh Canon" argument is the best thing about this reveal.

      That and it's fireworks are bigger than the Gohan, Piccolo, 17, and Vegeta meltdowns over the course of Super.

    4. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      Yeah, but why do people care? I can see how it matters when discussing feats and strength, but I see it as an excuse to ignore stuff even in that context. 

    5. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      Canon is still a big thing and is argued even today.

      I honestly am not the biggest fan of Broly and am not that happy to see him return. They use him way too much.

    6. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      Because for years, people used "canon" as a buzzword to denounce everything about Broly because they hated him that much. So Toriyama actually making his own version and actually inserting him into the main timeline is just the biggest "Fuck you" to that crowd and it's the most hilarious thing to see them lose their shit over it. 

    7. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      I know that, but why? it just strikes me as a non-issue. 

    8. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      I don't really care much about Broly either, but seeing people get so salty over him is such a fun sight.

    9. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      I am a little on the salty part just because I can't bring myself to like Broly

  7. Oh yea, this was around the time Infinite's theme was revealed....the reactions to that were pretty great.

  8. You know its annoying to me that while Unleashed is technically an inferior game, there's enough extra content to justify me going back to it...if it wasn't a bad game.

    Meanwhile, Generations is an overall better game...that doesn't have much to do after you've beaten the initial campaign.

      I think this is why Colors ended up being the Boost game that people held up as the standard. Perfect? No, far from it. I love Colors but its pretty much the Boost formula's awkward college kid phase-- it certainly knows what it wants to be and is reflective of better decision making, but it still makes a ton of silly amateur mistakes.

      But its so fun to replay. The game has a good multiplayer mode, plenty of red star rings to collect and incentive to get them, and a portable and a home version to accommodate different gaming schedules. Not to mention that there are some surprising nuances and secrets in the levels that make themselves more evident on repeat plays, which the red star rings are excellent at guiding players towards. Unleashed has excellent replay value but it can be annoyingly frustrating, Gens has limited replay value but isn't annoyingly frustrating, but Colors has excellent replay value that isn't annoyingly frustrating. Colors is simply the easiest Boost game for people to remember at all and/or positively because of that distinction.

    2. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Eh, to me Unleashed's flaws are still heavily outweighed by all the good it does. The werehog isn't bad when you know what you're doing and medal collecting is trivial to me at this point.

      The only thing that still gets me is the damn framerate on certain stages which is why I need that gd pc release.

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Unleashed is for more patient people, Generations is for people who just want to go from point A to point B and not think about it afterwards, Colors is...Colors.

  9. Kuzu the Boloedge

    Seriously, why are Pontaff still writing for Sonic?

    This is honestly a part about the older games that tends to get overlooked a lot because people are so focused on highlighting their flaws to prop up the newer games. But yea, the story and gameplay from the games feel completely divorced from each other Not that you didn't have things like that in the older games, but there was an attempt at making them cohesive at least that just isn't there anymore, or least in a much smaller capacity. I get that Sonic Team want to make Sonic more a laidback, pick up and play franchise ala Mario, but they still feel the need to add these cutscenes and emphasize the character's personalities with them but they can't be bothered to actually write them in a way that's entertaining. I don't think anyone wouldn't be as hard on the games for their plots if Sonic Team just bothered putting forth just a bit more effort in either tying them to the stages or just make them about something that's just not two characters standing around with limited animation making bad puns. It's not endearing, its not entertaining, it's at best boring and obnoxious at worst. And this isn't just a symptom of the Post-Colors era, this has been present in games like Heroes, Shadow, and 06. Unleashed really is the best of this new, lighthearted era; it doesn't have too many cutscenes, but the ones that are there actually have purpose. Beyond that though, the entire game is explored through game play with barely any interruptions from the story until the climax.
  10. Kuzu the Boloedge

    Seriously, why are Pontaff still writing for Sonic?

    I actually agree with this to some extent, and it helped me understand some grievances people tend to have with the characterization over the media across the years. Know how each character should react to a given situation and if it's appropriate makes sense and I feel like it's the biggest flaw in Pontac and Graff's games. Because I feel like the conflicts and character reactions there are done more in a vacuum or done for the sake of what would be "funny" instead of what's actually appropriate. So you get stuff like Sonic mouthing off to things he doesn't really need to (Remember "the clobbering :V"), simply because it's "funny" and that's what is being prioritized above anything else. Ironically enough, Forces just has the opposite problem of characters barely reacting to things that are going on. So yea, the problem goes far beyond Pontac or Graff, but they're certainly a symptom to it. Yea, that would be nice. But that shouldn't be a priority when structuring basic plot threads. I'd much rather have a cohesive and somewhat sensible plot than just a bunch of references that only a handful of people are going to understand.
  11. So are people still buying into the "Shadow is an echo fighter" rumor or has that died yet?

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Did they even buy it in the first place? That sounds to easy for a hoax to come up with; what other rumors were claimed alongside that?

    2. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      What rumor? I thought people were only hopeful he might get in because he doesn't appear as an assist trophy

    3. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King

      That was a rumor? Thought it was just people suggesting that as a possibility

    4. Nast

      Nast

      yeah i haven't heard of any rumor but i think it's a very plausible scenario regardless

    5. Bowbowis

      Bowbowis

      Why would it die? It's not like Shadow being an echo fighter is particularly out there, he's a popular character, has similar moveset to Sonic, and seems to have been dropped as an assist trophy in favor of Knuckles. Compared to Bayonetta getting in Smash 4 or Snake (and David Hayter) returning for Ultimate after the Konami/Kojima debacle Shadow being an echo fighter is a perfectly reasonable thing to hope for.

    6. JaidynReiman

      JaidynReiman

      Eh it was never a rumor. It was theorized for two specific reasons, and it seems semi likely to happen.

      It won't die until we see Shadow's AT come back (or he's back in another role), or the game comes out and Shadow isn't an Echo Fighter in the final version.

       

      But again, it was never a "rumor". It was a "theory".

    7. The Loudest Loud

      The Loudest Loud

      Yeah nobody's saying he IS in there as a hoax, it's all just hopeful speculation. I personally think it's really likely at this stage with the introduction of echo fighters. He'd be one of the simplest they could do and it'd be a big crowd pleaser!

  12. Kuzu the Boloedge

    Seriously, why are Pontaff still writing for Sonic?

    I was speaking in general how people have reacted to their writing in the eight years they've been around.
  13. Kuzu the Boloedge

    Seriously, why are Pontaff still writing for Sonic?

    I'm still not very fond of their writing for the series, but at this point I've just learned to make peace with it and take what I get. Which leads me to my point; I understand the writing for the series has become a contentious subject overall, but I am really not comfortable with the hate they get when their only crime is *gasp* having a less than a stellar script for a video game series. From how the fanbase treats them though, you'd think they have committed some type of murder against some of these guy's family members or something. And it's reactions like that that only reinforce the already negative image this fanbase has. As for the OP's question? They're still writing because Sega thinks they're good enough and that's all there is to it. No don't care how much we bitch and moan about it, because all of the bitching and moaning is a vocal minority at best. The actual reality is more than likely that people outside of the most diehard of fans do not give a shit about the story or lore of Sonic the Hedgehog, and that's the straight truth. They don't give a shit the same way they don't give a shit about Mario's lore. Its just a video game series to occasionally pick up and have fun with and not some type of epic that the fanbase tries to make it seem like it is. It's why I can't be bothered to argue in favor of this series` lore anymore, not only am I tired of parroting the same arguments I've been saying for years, I've honestly grown so apathetic and mostly satisfied when the game is functional and characters aren't completely stupid. So yea, that's my take.
  14. Ya know, as somebody who doesn't care much for Pontac or Graff's writing. 

    I have to admit, the constant complaining about them and treating them like they've committed some type of crime has really worn thin,.

    1. RedFox99

      Same here.

    2. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      I don't think they're great, but I feel like people blow them out of proportion.

      Of course, in part this is because I've never really been impressed with the games' writing, even before they came on board.

       

    3. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      People need to realize that Pontaff's contributions to Sonic scripts are not even half of the problems with the recent story.

    4. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      To be perfectly honest, I've just come to the conclusion that Sonic stories are actually bad and they're carried because occasionally, we get some good characterization out of them.

    5. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      That's because they only make us think there's good characterization. 

      So long as there's blunt references that let us know that Sonic is an adventurer, Tails is a child tech-wiz, Knuckles is a clumsy guardian, Shadow is a powerful anti-hero, and Eggman is evil, that all people need to know about them.

      The issue comes from when they actually use those characters. Yet it's clear with how they've just been described, that there's plenty of opportunity to do more with them.

    6. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      The characters are as flat as paper, which is only a slight step down from the good old days when they used to be as flat as cardboard.

      I think that, as fans, we assigned more meaning and depth to the characters than was ever actually there. We filled in the blanks and put far more thought into these characters and their world than Sonic Team ever did.

       

    7. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      That same line could be used to counter just about every topic that’s brought up on here.

    8. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Oh, I'm not saying that we can't or shouldn't have fun overthinking these characters. But that's what it is: Overthinking, at least when compared to the amount of thought Sega's ever put into them.

      It's still fun to fill in the blanks and flesh the characters out, coming up with our own fan-interpretations and discussing our own perspectives on who these characters are and what they're about. The Sonic characters have, if nothing else, loads of untapped potential to be interesting - as evidenced by fans who are very passionate about them.

    9. TCB

      Goshdarnit why can't my sonic plots, writing and characterization be like dat dere kirbeh with its simple on da outside but filled with hidden lore on the inside grumble

    10. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      Yea, looking back, most of my enjoyment came from headcanoning so many different plots and interpretations for the series and wishing to see them implemented in the series. 

      However, I've learned to acknowledge that Sonic Team simply don't care for the series like that and just take what I can get. I've learned to get enjoyment out of things like the comics for stuff like that and just accepted the games for what they are.

  15. Sonic Advance 3 being a stealth sequel to Sonic Battle and actually concluding Emerl's story arc in it is one of the best pieces of continuity in the series.

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      which was wild because for whatever reason I decided to buy Sonic Battle before buying Advance 3 back in the day. So to find out that I actually played those games in order when I noticed the connections was cool to me as a kid
