  1. Chaos Angel is a pretty underrated zone aesthetically, because it's one of the few Final Zones that isn't some type of mechanical base run by Eggman. 

    1. Forte-Metallix


      And it has absolutely phenomenal music.

  2. I'm sorry for not having faith in a series that has consistently written terrible stories for the better part of a decade :\
  3. So have you said happy birthday to your lord an savior, Sonic Adventure 2 today?

    1. Gabe


      "Happy birthday" is an odd way to spell "dark holiday"

    2. Celestia


      I already thank Sonic Adventure 2 every day

      Good thing I'm an atheist!

  4. I know bringing up criticism towards Lost World tends to irritate people, but I wanted to point out that my friend, who is at best, a casual fan of the series told me one of his biggest problems with the game was how the Zeti and Lost Hex have no context or explanation whatsoever and are unceremoniously booted out of the game. I never said anything about my gripes towards the game before this keep in mind.

    So yes, context kind of matters when you're writing these stories :V

      Your friend is a smart person. Smarter than most people when it comes to Sonic.

  5. I'll concede to this. None of the context surrounding the original boss fight is present though; is Sonic fighting Shadow to get to the Eclipse Cannon to stop it or is this just a friendly spar between him and the Modern Shadow? None of that is explained and the boss fight is hardly referenced at all before or after the fact. For comparison's sake, we see the Time Eater (Aka, Modern Eggman) kidnap Classic Eggman after the Death Egg Robot boss fight, which sets up them teaming together for the final boss fight. All I wanted was just a little context to the events taking place and the game didn't even provide that. On that note, I don't expect Forces to deliver much on that front on account of it's numerous similarities to Generations already. Boom being it's own canon is moot since the characters are clearly based on their mainstream selves; Shadow already knows who Sonic is and they already have an established dynamic. And like with Generations, there's no context. Shadow just hates Sonic and friendship.......because reasons I guess, but we gotta have a boss fight so logic and story cohesion don't really matter much.
  6. I don't really have much to say on account of Zavok being pretty one-dimensional as far as characterization goes. Yea, there's potential but it doesn't mean a whole lot if the story never does anything with it. He has a few token good scenes, but overall they don't amount to much on account of him (and the rest of the Zeti) being unceremoniously pushed aside for Eggman in the ending. So they don't even get any sort of resolution to their characters at all, they just...disappeared and that was it. Because of that, I'm not particularly invested in his inclusion in Forces. It's even worse now since he's been pushed aside for the likes of Infinite for Big Bad status, and I'm way more invested in Shadow's reasons for teaming up with Eggman than Zavok's. So as it stands, Zavok lacks too much context and depth for me to really be invested in him as a character, and since he's been reduced to a flunky in Forces, I doubt they're going to dedicate much time to fleshing him out as much as they are showing off the cool new villain. It'd be nice to be proven wrong, but Lost World's storytelling doesn't instill much hope.
  7. DogTagz, I'd say you have an unbelievable amount of faith in Sonic Teams writing capabilities. It's kind of a known fact their plotting and characterization has been less than stellar ever since those elements became more prominent. I know that, as Sonic fans, we automatically assume the worse at any given opportunity, but it's not like this mindset developed over night. Keep in mind Shadows recent appearances have been nothing more than gracious boss fights. He's in Generations, but no actual context is in that fight outside of it taking place in a similar setting to SA2. And Boom speaks for itself. Yea, ST didn't write the latter, but they did supervise it. You'd think someone would have pointed how poorly implemented he was, but nope. That's what everyone is worried about, that there's just gonna be no explanation and the characters are barely going to react to it, because that's been the standard for the games for the past three. So I really don't get how you can call us unreasonable for expecting the worst, when Sonic Team have done nothing to prove that they could actually make this work in a convincing way.
  8. As somebody who never really indulged in Sonic OC's, how accurate is this?


    1. Nepenthe


      Lol, this person's don't look all that much better.

    2. VEDJ-F


      There's actually a mandate against male Sonic characters wearing pants, so the first "bad" OC are more accurate to that than the "good" OCs. 

      In fact, the only good OC that would actually be considered up to snuff would be Spectra, and that's if you go by Sonic Shuffle logic. Gyro's obscured a lot by clothing detail and Rai looks more like an Freedom Planet offshoot than a Sonic character. 

    3. Forte-Metallix


      Ironically, I think this guy's character designs still look way too busy or "alien" to fit into Sonic.

    4. VEDJ-F


      *is more accurate

    5. Nepenthe


      Wait, there's a literally Sega mandate that says Sonic cannot wear pants? What about the alternate costumes and special artwork and shit then?

    6. Ernest-Panda


      I can't even read this, it's too small and blury.

    7. Ferno


      apparently Iizuka sat Big Red Button down about it when they showed him prototype boom sonics with pants

      it was a big deal

    8. VEDJ-F


      Alternate costumes are just that; little unlockable bonuses. I think it's more in terms of their standard design (which would cover Boom).

      Heck, have there been alternate costumes with male characters in pants since, say, Sonic Rivals 2?

    9. SonicWind


      I suppose that explains why Boom!Sonic is so adamant about nobody wearing pants.

    10. Celestia


      I kinda wish the image was bigger so I could actually read the text but on the other hand there's enough condescension dripping off every word I can make out that I'd probably die trying to read this whole thing

    11. Diogenes


      just going from the pictures i'd say they've got better sonic character design sensibilities than most fans but their work feels more like minor characters from Archie Sonic than characters that would fit in the games.

      @Ferno Sonic being so adamant about pants in Boom makes so much more sense now lol.

      Oh yea, a biigger version for those who can't read it.

      it's those kind of surprises and hurdles that really build a good relationship :V

      Also, wtf is KYM?

      Come on, you at least gotta get a good chuckle out of that even if it's not completely true.

      Shadow was always an "ends justify the means" kinda guy. 

      As long as they give a decent enough explanation of why he's- ...Oh, who am I kidding?

      If he could cook, I bet he'd keep it interesting by preparing a fine risotto and then slamming down on it a chunk of raw beef hard enough to shatter the table the plate is on. :V

      Y'all gotta have fun with some of this. At the end of the day, we're all just bickering over a game series staring a blue hedgehog. What kind of mark is this really going to leave in the history books at the end of it all? What course of the universe is it really going to set us on? Hell, what exactly is it going to do to move one's viewpoints of the games when they actually sit down and play it? Nothing.

      so meme with us plz

  10. I feel like it's less making one uniformed game style, and rather the style itself not deviating from what the normal goal is in a Sonic game. You're not hunting for treasure in a boxed environment, nor are you using something as unintuitive as Psychokinises. If anything, it's more like Modern Sonic with a dash of the shooting stages from the Dreamcast titles. That's probably the best way of doing it; you're still playing the Modern style, but the level design is changed to accommodate for character abilities.... too bad they couldn't do it for characters I actually wanted to see.
  11. To be fair, most franchises can't completely emulate their 2D adventures in a 3D plane. 2D Mario and Zelda are vastly different in design and intent than 3D Mario and Zelda. Sonic's issues with 3D mostly stem from shoddy development and inconsistemsies between them.
  12. They had Mario at Nintendo NY, but I had to work lol. Ripperoni, normie life is tough :V

  13. Those Sonic channel comics were pretty cute, wish they put that kind of character based writing in the games.
