      On the other hand, the fat guy is calling himself Fujimora Pantsu, and is swinging his ax at you (well at the monsters, he just feels the need to rhyme every sentence for some reason).

    3. Tara

      Tara

      I'll have what he's having.

    4. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      The fat guy, or me?

    5. Tara
    6. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      The fat one is the one running around swinging his ax while nearly naked, and doing so while talking in rhyme! He's crazy I say!

    7. Tara

      Tara

      Okay, this is important for my visual understanding. Is this a battle axe or a lumberjack ax?

    8. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Uh...lemme check...LOL, the dolt was using his lumberjack ax instead of his battle ax! No wonder he was only doing 1 point of damage to the monsters XD.

    9. Tara

      Tara

      His bare flesh probably doesn't serve as very good armor, either, I take it?

    10. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Considering the guy can respawn every time he dies, I don't think armor would be much of an issue. Plus, from what I understand, he actually modified his normal armor so he would look like he was only in his shorts...for some reason...

    11. Tara

      Tara

      What in the seven circles of hell are you playing again?

    12. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      i'm not playing anything. This is all from the replay button I found on this lotus eater machine.

      Oh, okay. I hope more edible foodstuffs come riding on vehicles again. I am hunger.

      Is someone making a recording of this event, or is that just me?

      I'm having a team of psychiatrists examine this status thread to examine both of our mental healths as we speak. :(

    16. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well tell'em to psychoanalyze Wreck-it Ralph here; I think I just saw him peep in here a few minutes ago.

    17. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      He's probably having a mental breakdown trying to figure out what the hell is going on.

    18. Tara

      Tara

      I would, but uh... there's soap foaming from the mouth of the psychiatrists... I think it's soap... I hope it's soap... they're also looking at me very angrily.

    19. SenEDDtor Missile

      I wonder what the people on this forum who see this update in the morning are going to think?

      We'll probably spark a debate about the legality of certain substances in the Chit-Chat section.

  2. Looking at the SU vs. SC and seeing the people defending certain aspects of Colors makes me have an irrational feeling of dislike, because some part of my mind keeps telling me that the people who defend Colors are promoting the currently mediocre direction they are taking Sonic stories...yet I feel ashamed for feeling that because for all of the things they do say, they have good points as well.

      SenEDDtor Missile

      My problem isn't with how epic a story is, just that I feel the current stories are too unorganized and frankly don't use the characterization very well.

    3. Vertekins

      Vertekins

      So we should go on with stories with plotholes, predominant 'comical' tones to the detriment of development and unneeded exaggeration of characters as well as victims that do not ellicit empathy?

    4. Soniman

      Soniman

      God forbid we have a simple and fun story for ONE time only.

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @soniman, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HOW SIMPLE A STORY IS, BUT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH WHETHER ANYTHING ACTUALLY HAPPENS IN THE STORY IN A FASHION THAT ACTUALLY MAKES YOU GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE CHARACTERS! DON'T PULL A FUCKING STRAWMAN ON ME SONIMAN! YOU KNOW BETTER THAN THAT!

    6. Vertekins

      Vertekins

      Generations has been the only game since and was even flatter than Colours. So how are we to have any real expectations for a game that balances tone without impacting the plot development.

    7. Soniman

      Soniman

      And id still say Yacker's disappearance was the only apparent pothole, and a incredibly minor one at that, but people feel the need to CONSTANTLY bring up because its's REALLY that important to the story right?

    8. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @soniman, I'd say it is because he's supposed to be a supporting character with a major role, and yet he DOES NOTHING to make you give a shit about him.

    9. Vertekins

      Vertekins

      Yes it is. The game made a point about Yacker's disappearance and failed to elaborate on that point. It smacks of lazy incompetent writing when you bring up a plot point and expect the viewers to ignore it especially when it's supposed to make you care about said character.

    10. Nix

      Nix

      We should go back to olden days. Where we mixed blue cartoon hedgehogs with government conspiracies and shit. There were plotholes and unlikable characters who never did shit. The good old days.

    11. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      We had this kind of story twice, and by all accounts, it's going to be the continued direction of the series. Even of Colors was a one-time deal, I am right to be annoyed that Sega is ignoring the adventure elements of an adventure series, especially since lighthearted tones aren't exclusive to non-storytelling. We can have both.

    12. Soniman

      Soniman

      And giving damn about the characters? That's something Colors did better than Unleashed ever did, despite having a apparently better and more deeper plot.

    13. Vertekins

      Vertekins

      The Wisps predicament was Sonic's motivation for doing what he did. Yet the fall flat as victims because I can't care about them due to undevelopment. So it marginalizes what Sonic's doing.

    14. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Soniman Oh right, two characters who don't even give a shit about what's going on, and have only a grand total of two moments where anything of interest actually HAPPENS to them. Yeah so much better, my ass!

    15. Soniman

      Soniman

      I give up, Unleashed is a masterpiece, you're right guys.

    16. Nix

      Nix

      I liked the romantic love story between the dog pixie thing and the chocolate bars in Sonic Unleashed. That was the best.

    17. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      You aren't even listening are you?

    18. Vertekins

      Vertekins

      On the contrary, Chips predicament was strengthened by the tragedy of him being a part of a planet that he'd never been a REAL part of. I cared about the character because of that and his interactions with Sonic just strengthened it.

    19. BlazingTales

      BlazingTales

      *reads Unleashed's gallery bios* *reads wisp bios on Colours website on characterisation that never even remotely appeared in the game* You keep caring about those characters, mon.

    20. Soniman

      Soniman

      I listen and I understand. Im just done arguing about it because I honestly don't care anymore.

    21. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      We're not saying it's a masterpiece. We're saying it's storytelling and narrative are more optimal in a series that- at is core- are a team of superheroes fighting huge threats, than a series that throws those elements to the wayside completely in favor of comedy.

      And really, why are you so pissy? More people in general like Colors. It has better review scores. History has denoted it's the game that got Sonic back on track. You've fucking won already.

    22. BlazingTales

      BlazingTales

      Oh, whoops. Soniman wants to drop this. Nevermind then, sorry. xP

  3. The Sonic franchise is the only franchise I know of where people will make up ridiculous rationalizations to justify why things that would be perfectly fine, or at least can work in other media with similar elements, would somehow be too dark and edgy for Sonic, even if it means completely throwing actual logic, critical thinking, or even just bloody having an imagination out the window.

      No, that's not it. I don't care if he reads the comic or not.

      What I'm talking about is that from my perspective, he refuses to even try to recognize the merits, or at least the potential of certain elements of certain Sonic games purely because it clashes with his single-minded preference for Classic Sonic. Even when arguments are made that actively seeks compromise between the Modern and Classic elements, trying to blend them together in a way that feels cohesive and appeals to a wider range of people without alienating too many people, he still refuses to accept it. He claims that it's out of a desire to maintain what he believes Sonic should only be, but from my perspective it only seems like he just doesn't want anyone to like any variant of Sonic except his own.

    3. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      the sonic franchise is the only franchise i know where people take a disagreement on the proper tone of the series as some kind of dishonest conspiracy to make the series bad

    4. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      You gonna do this every time Sonic Forces shows up even if it's not really related to what's going on with the game

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well if the only response you ever give to any idea that isn't purely aligned with your own is "it's bad, it's shit, don't even bother", then why should you expect me to change my response?

    6. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      that means both of you are wrong for having the same pointless argument all the time

    7. SenEDDtor Missile

      No, it means one of us is trying to get their point across and the other doesn't want to listen at all.

      ah yes, i should learn to agree with things i don't actually like, because

    9. KHCast

      I think Edd's more talking about your lack of looking for a compromise, not so much that you don't like what others like 

    10. Clades Jin

      Clades Jin

      is that the excuse people use now when they don't even bother seeing eye to eye anymore in a discussion lol
      why even be on a forum then

    11. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @KHCast YES, THANK YOU!

      That's the point I was trying to get across but in my anger, sleep deprived, and nervous because of something important I had to do today state I couldn't articulate it properly

    12. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Well, one's thing for sure, on both ends this is another good case for cynicism is more a detriment than actual good.

      Keep it skeptical.

    13. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      what's a compromise here going to gain me? it's not like we're brainstorming for an actual game.

    14. Clades Jin

      Clades Jin

      because you're on a bloody discussion forum :V

    15. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      @Diogenes Respect and a more pleasant conversation for starters.

    16. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      yeah, and i discuss. i'm not obligated to compromise on ideas i have not been convinced about.

    17. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      If you're sleep deprived and angry, then perhaps you shouldn't be posting on a forum to begin witb and actually get some sleep.

    18. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      It's hard to convince you when you refuse to actually be convinced, especially when others far more intelligent and articulate than me have made a similar case to mine and far better explained.

    19. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      "a more pleasant conversation" where I have to constantly betray my ideas to keep other people happy isn't my idea of a good time

      like, shit, it's not as if I don't consider other ideas. but after so many years of this series and these arguments I am pretty set in my ways and it's going to take some damn good arguments to uproot my positions. if I don't see those arguments? then I keep on believing what I believe.

    20. KHCast

      KHCast

      @Diogenes Out of curiosity, have you ever had a change of view on anything Sonic from someone with a different stance, or compromised a middle ground solution? Honestly curious since I only think I've seen you in constant disagreement and arguments 

    21. Clades Jin

      Clades Jin

      Then why are you actually here though
      You're not going to find those arguments from atop that imaginary hill you're looking down from

    22. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Clearly Dio is a Baby boomer looking down on millenials. Fucking millenials, you ruined Sonic.

    23. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      @KHCast probably, yeah? like, there have been so many arguments over the years. i can't possibly keep track of specifics. but my opinions have shifted around over time, and this board has certainly been a large factor in that.

      @Clades Jin to discuss. what do you expect me to be doing, exactly? i'm not trying to be elitist about this, I just need convincing arguments if I'm going to change my stance, same as (I would expect) everyone else. and in general the arguments for more serious stuff, I have not found compelling, the arguments for more classic stuff, I have.

    24. Clades Jin

      Clades Jin

      What's the point of discussing if you're not willing to compromise for the sake of discussion? it just makes you look intellectually dishonest. I'm not telling you that you should abandon your ideals for the sake of dicussion, but looking at things from an objective perspective can give you a fresh perspective, that you can then apply to your original ideals, rather than staying cemented in what only you think is good and bad in the discussion. There's also nothing wrong with a thought experiment once in a while.

      If you still disagree with the idea afterwards, that's fine, but don't brush off someone for it. It only makes them frustrated and makes you, once again, look intellectually dishonest. Tell them why you disagree, or if you have already and can't be bothered to retype it, give an abridged version. And if you can't be assed to do even that, just don't reply to it.

      I get typing a sassy reply but there's no point if you've agitated the user and continue doing so.

    25. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      okay you have basically described what i already do (save that I do snark more than is necessary, though I don't think too excessively), but apparently that hasn't been enough because I still haven't been swayed from my mostly-classic leanings yet.

      e: and when I do snark, it's probably about something I've already argued a hundred times and nothing new has been brought to the table

    26. Clades Jin

      Clades Jin

      Fair enough then.

  4. @sonfan I'm not even expecting a deep story, but frankly I'm not convinced they can even write a subpar story anymore. Nonexistent is the only thing I will ever expect from them rom this point on.

    1. SenEDDtor Missile
    2. Celestia

      Celestia

      Because of Generations?

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      And Colors to a far lesser degree. All Sonic stories have been poorly executed to some degree, but after the recent work, I've given up on them ever giving a damn about story ever again. The worst part is that this will be met with thunderous applause as opposed to the scorn this lazy and downright terrible method of handling the story it should be getting.

    4. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      that's SEGA's direction if they wanted the stories to be nonexistent. They're just there to write the script. If they got rid of them SEGA can still make the stories nonexistent if they choose to.

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Which is why they need to be called out on it as opposed to praised for it.

    6. Celestia

      Celestia

      I don't think it's because they "don't give a damn", but I guess I see what you mean.

    7. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      so why are you making it seem like it's the writers fault when they're doing what Sega is telling them to do?

    8. Celestia

      Celestia

      Although I'm not sure what sparked this considering today's stuff was literally all about the gameplay, anyway. At the very least, IIRC, Aaron briefly talked up Knuckles and Amy and seemed to imply they'd be important (might just be PR talk tho').

    9. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      I wasn't being clear enough and ended up lumping them together because while SEGA is the one dishing out the orders, the writers are the ones carrying them out, and thus are accomplices. Troll logic yes, but I'm in too much of a bad mood to care.

    10. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Seeing the trailer sparked my interest, but ended up serving as a reminder of what it won't be, hence my resent.

    11. Celestia

      Celestia

      I think the writers have done fairly decently with what they're given, at least in terms of character interaction. I get the feeling SEGA asked them to not make Modern talk much in Generations, sadly. They got the other characters' personalities down pretty well, even if their lines were brief, so I have no doubt they could have done some cool stuff if SEGA weren't in Damage Control Mode.

    12. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      I'm reading more comments of people lately who doesn't like the writers puts the full blame on them and thinks that if SEGA gets rid of them then the stories will suddenly get better. It's stupid thinking cause that's not going to change anything. SEGA can still make the stories bare bones cause they want to impress the critics more then the fans

    13. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Still not good enough. The fact to me is that they will never write anything decent and thus I expect nothing from them.

    14. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well then SEGA needs a fucking wake up call.

    15. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      I wouldn't expect much from what we had before either.

    16. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      And yet they still somehow managed to do something mildly interesting despite fumbling so often.

    17. Celestia

      Celestia

      I really don't think what we had pre-Colours is any better or worse than what we have recently, honestly. At most I'd want them to take a bit more inspiration from the Adventure era in terms of action in cutscenes, but ... that's it.

    18. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      I'd thought Colors was interesting despite how you think. Generations was the only disappointment for me.

    19. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Interesting, yet they still blew it at crucial points. I'm sorry for being so bitter, but I don't see any salvation for story EVER beyond this point.

    20. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      okay, if that's how you feel after only two Sonic games with a minimal story.

    21. Celestia

      Celestia

      I see where you're coming from, but I strongly disagree with the "it will never be good ever again" attitude. Especially since that's what people said about Sonic in general all through the latter 00s ... yet here we are.

      Maybe you're right, and you can tell us "I told you so!!!!!" if that happens, but eh.

    22. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      btw, even though Colors didn't have a large focus on story I still liked the story for what it is. I liked the charm, new voice cast, the writing, some of the jokes. I dunno, I'm more interested in good character interactions then I do story when it comes to Sonic games.

    23. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      The interactions were still not enough because of how stupidly done some of them were.

    24. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      *sighs* Maybe to you they're not enough and they're stupidly done. Am I not allowed to say what I like about the game without you barking back at me?

    25. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Sorry. This whole thing left me more snappy than usual. I respect your opinion on the interaction thing, but I honestly still wish for more, hence my somewhat crabby nature atm.

  5. You know what would be the biggest kick in the nuts? If it turns out the story for Forces is exactly the same as Generations with a darker and edgier coat of paint. As in just as barebones, only DRK N EDGY, Infinite is basically Time Eater in every aspect except appearance, the villains do jackshit to show their villainy and the bulk of story is just nothing but Sonic and friends making bad commentary on how dark and edgy everything is while Sonic Team obliviously acts like they've appeased the fans.

      In top of all of that, I'll will make a petition to shut down Sonic Team for good and let other fans to do the 3D games. (Mr Lange plz)

      The ONLY thing that might save this game for me is the story. If they f*ck up, I'm done.

      Not before strangling Iizuka, Pontac, Graff, Nakamura and the JP writers.

      Sonic already runs on walls in Unleashed; there was an entire boss were you spent the majority of the time running along a wall. The only difference is Sonic doesn't use Lost World bullshit to magically scale 90 degree angle walls, at speeds that wouldn't allow near that sort of climb.

      Keep your Lost World to yourself.

      That and as BenderAmy said parkous is useless with Unleased/Colors level design with either emphasize reaction-based movements and speed or blocky platforming and Wisp spamming.

      Diogenes

      unleashed and colors did not have good stages. we need wider, more complex stages, not narrow hallways

      jairo: the real difference between SLoW's parkour and Unleashed's running on walls is that unleashed only allowed you to do it when they wanted you to do it, which made it basically pointless. SLoW's mechanics need work, granted, but it deserves to be acknowledged that they actually wanted you to have control over the gameplay

      @Dio

      You're right about the goal of the game being to move away from "Boost to Win", you definitely had more control over Sonic. I still prefer the forced wall run in Unleashed, because the game and levels are built around each and every single one so you don't find yourself fucked over by the mechanic. Well, not as often as Lost World anyways.

      If the mechanic was improved and the game let you run without being magnetized to every wall within the surround...

      Much as I appreciate Unleashed, it's still only really half of a good game. The Werehog just weighed the game down that badly, and those stupid fucking medal gating didn't help.

    3. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      the werehog has way more care, put into it than the custom character. The games don't deserve to be compared and I think a 60 is generous for Forces tbh

    4. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

       The werehog was far more of a slog and gap in speed to Sonic than the custom character. 

    5. Won't Stop, Just Go

      It is pretty plain to see which game had more effort put into it, but I'm pretty tired of people pointing it out like that as though it's somehow supposed to trump not being fun. Even in the best case, that just makes Unleashed an ambitious failure and Forces a wheezing gasp of cynicism.

    10. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      It's clear far more care was put into Unleashed than Forces, but frankly, I'd take the halfhearted avatar gameplay over the werehog any day.

    11. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      I find some of the werehog stages fun and think it gets kind of a ban rep.

       

      A given forces stage has almost nothing going on in it gameplay wise so to see it held over something that actually spins my gears because "it's not fast" was just confusing to me, if we're judging the games critically. 

    12. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      It's not even just the raw speed that gets me - you can do some pretty nifty things once you realize you can rolling jump out of a ledge grab - but the fact that it's incredibly flow breaking on pretty much any other level. There's barely any stages out there where you can simply platform to the end because enemy encounters keep locking you in, because Sega somehow thought they were obligated to ape God of War instead of Spiderman.

    13. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      It became less of an issue as weresonic became more powerful. Encounters ended quicker and I had more options.

      Granted, I don't think they should have locked as many things behind the progression system in general, but that's a problem with Sonic games from that era. 

    14. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      The problem isn't that the encounters are too long. The problem is that they're mandatory in the first place.

    15. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      You could avoid some fights with shortcuts. I wish it happened more often since it it would encourage exploration.  

      But again I don't mind the combat as much as most others and found the platforming that was there fun. I can't say the same about the custom character since it only goes far enough to kind of resemble a sonic game on the surface so it doesn't attract criticism.

    16. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      The Werehog was a stupid idea to begin with and was really out of place for a game that's about high speed platoforming. That's something that should of been saved for a spinoff game which im sure most ppl wouldn't be against or better yet a new IP.

      The Deleter

      To be honest I don't see a SA1 remake doing anything but appeasing a very small amount of fans in the first place, even if it ends up being super faithful. The nature of the era and game itself had so much to do with personal vision and interpretation filling in the gaps, "Adventure 1 but modernized" could mean dozens of different takes in everyone's own heads. Several different "SA1 Remastered" projects have shut down in early stages due to "creative differences", (if taken at face value, at least) and I kinda feel that'd encapsulate the majority of the fanbase when all is said and done.

      Buying the HD port on PC was good enough for me; the Saturn-Dreamcast vibes are perfect enough on their own. Only big downside is all the bugs that stick with it, which would be great to get rid of, but other than that, I kinda like keeping SA1 as-is. The all encompassing "best Sonic game" everyone wants it to be in one way or another is better suited for a totally original game, imo

  13. Potentially unpopular opinion: 

    The only reason anyone even cares about Mighty or Ray is only because they're from the "Classic Era" of Sonic, and thus somehow by association they're "good" despite having nothing of note outside of comics and obscure games. If they had been introduced at ANY other point, I'd guarantee they'd be bludgeoned with the "shitty friends" thing and cast off into obscurity just like any of the Modern era characters.

    1. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      ahem

      COOOMICSSSSS

      They're well recieved because of the comics ffs. Ian took really good care of them, so there's no low for them yet, like having annoying voices,quotes or being a bit unlikable (Silver '06 fits on that list for a lot of people)

      If Tangle was in Mania, no one would complaim either, cuz there's no low for her too.

      Also, a LOT of people like Blaze. If she was there too absolutely no one sould complain unless they are a classic purist.

    3. Kuzu

      The fact that they are so obscure means people can speculate and there's no reason to assume they're going to be "bad". Or more accurately, they've been mostly harmless for most of the series, and thus there's no reason to associate them with being bad. 

      Most Modern characters are associated with games that range from mediocre to bad, and the attempts at writing them usually falls flat, which is why they have the negative rep they do.

       

      So no, it goes beyond simply being "classic" or "modern" because if that was the case, nobody would be complaining about a lack of Amy despite her being mostly a Modern character.

      Ray does have cuteness going for him.

      Look at him smiling goofily while hanging upside down, and his large smile intro sprite suggests a comically cheerful character. Mighty looks cool to me and kinda has seniority since an armadillo was also a possible animal choice for Sonic's original role.

      @JosepHenry I wouldn't say "no violence", since he fought him back (even breaking trees while throwing the werehog), but yeah, he was definetely holding back, trying to reason with Sonic.

    13. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      This is going off of Archie Mighty, as a heads up.

      To me, Mighty is like the perfect combo of Sonic's and Knuckles's best traits with none of their negatives. He's Knuckles if he wasn't so hot-headed or gullible and Sonic if he wasn't an asshole a jerk with a heart of gold or impatient. And as much as I like that part of Sonic, when it doesn't go too far, there's something about Mighty being able to be so calm and kind yet still so free, fun, adventurous and cool that just made him incredibly appealing to the point that I honestly believe him to be a better character than Sonic and more than fit to have his own series. It's just a shame that he doesn't hit the same widely spread visual cool factor that Sonic does in his design.

      Funny enough, I kinda see Mighty as a perfect contrast to Shadow and would like to see the two meet and interact. Him meeting Blaze would also be neat and him meeting Sticks would be hilarious since he'd be so patient with her that it'd probably either throw her off or make her go super nuts with all the stuff she loves talking about.

      I actually agree with this @SenEDDtor Missile

      Mr Loopone

      It's kinda tricky because for most people, their only exposure are the comics that featured the characters who do their own take and like their own take on them. Very few people played SegaSonic the Hedgehog whether it is extremely lucky to find an actual arcade machine since not many got produced or emulation. Chaotix, yeah perhaps a bit more and again more of the comics than people playing it on their 32X. Some of it is the point while others wanted more of them.

      On the other hand, I actually did play SegaSonic the Hedgehog and liked the design of the characters as well as being the better of the isometric Sonic games (at least it was fast but still had some platforming). I kinda wanted them back in a way, not because they were classic but because of they didn't have a much chance to shine and as an alternative to Tails and Knuckles for Sonic. Of course, you would have realistic expectations so I didn't expect the news.

  14. @Warp It's not overreacting if they are clearly getting away with being asses while their victims get browbeaten into being nothing but being forced to watch passively from the sidelines as those asses go continue to be asses without restraint.

      I have no idea why we're now saying you can't feel offended from forum interaction. For one, we're all still real people. And hell, that's why forum rules exist, because we operate under the assumption that we're catering a service to real people who have the ability to be assholes. If you're not offended by an Internet asshole, it's fine, but telling others not to be so doesn't help anything. Like, it literally helps nothing.

    12. Sixth-Rate Soma

      Sixth-Rate Soma

      Here's the usual pattern.

      >Snide comment about X

      >Enraged response on par with pet murder

      >Confusion about response, mixed snide comments relating to response

      >Enraged response on par with pet murder, mixed passive-aggressive shots at Y

      >Fans of Y get irritated, make shots at X

      >Cycle repeats until mod-intervention

    16. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      I see it a bit differently, namely that the initial snide comment isn't about an object like a game, but it's direct ad hominem or a straw man at someone or a group of people for no reason, which I basically consider flame-baiting, so of course people are going to respond harshly. If you don't flamebait, well, you don't get harsh reactions. You've made plenty of such statuses deriding a game without getting lip yourself.

  15. The story is never going to improve because SEGA is too afraid to do anything and the mindless legion of TRU SAWNIK FANS are just going to keep encouraging them because they are too hypocritical to realize that simple =/= brain dead. I'm convinced this will be the case and it will never change, and nothing anyone says other than actual proof that the story will actually gain some substance will convince me otherwise.

      @Ash, Simple according to this fanbase is equal to braindead, so that doesn't give me any hopes. Plus I can't get either game or system cuz I'm saving cash for college and food when I move out, so I'm stuck with videos only.

    13. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      It won't because most people are so stupid that they'll think of the braindead variety before anything better. I'd even settle for something like Jackie Chan Adventures sequels story because at least that was entertaining, yet they can't even manage that right.

    14. SenEDDtor Missile

      Strickerx5

      Can't say I don't feel this way at times, ut it can really go either way here. You can only hope that if this game does succeed in every aspect besides story that people will call them out on it so that they'll fix it in the next one.

  16. When do you think the MCU films will hit a point where they start stagnating/degrading in quality?

    1. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      They kinda were during Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3. Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man the year next were the adrenaline shots that the cinematic universe needed.
      I can imagine that starting with phase 4 after next year's Avengers movie the films will be more subdue and light, so that would probably make some of the fanbase leave

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Maybe after Avengers 4. Not degrade in quality but the hype might be gone compared to what came before.

      It all depends whatever Phase 4 is. 

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I don't where it'll go once IW 2 is done. Is guess once they run out of good story arcs to adapt?

      I mean, how are the comics themselves doing?

    4. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      When someone's mom is named Martha.

    5. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      In the past it has happened before but the next batch they have improved.

      I think it might be after the new movie. It just depends whether people like Ant Man and the Wasp, if that on ends up fine then the next ones will be the testing ones. Since the recent ones set a high bar for them (e.g. Civil War, Black Panther, Infinite War), people might start complaining about say Captain Marvel (feels strange writing that when you're more familiar with another character of the same name) might not meet to their high standards even if it ends up decent. Then after Avengers 4, people might lose interest since their favorite characters are gone. When there's a peak, most of the time there is a fall.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Phase 2 for a period of time kind of was that. A string of not very memorable films with a few stand-outs like Winter Soldier, and GOTG. 

      Personally I liked Iron Man 3 but I know not a lot enjoys it so...

      @King Koopone Captain Marvel is special though in the same way that Doctor Strange introduced the concept of multiverses and magic, Captain Marvel will introduce spac-

      wait

      guardians already introduced that

      uh

      she'll introduce the kree and skrull I guess, that will lead for many interesting stories. Maybe Secret Invasion down the road which will give room for any Avengers to return assuming they don't kill the old cast off in Avengers 4. 

    9. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      IMO Guardians isn't an introduction to the higher concept stuff like Captain Marvel could be

    10. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      I guess Captain Marvel will introduce uh

      organized space

      is that a thing?

      Like, non-generic spacefaring.

    11. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Yeah thats kinda what I'm getting at

      If this leads to a Nova and a Quasar movies i'm all for it.

    13. Speederino

      Speederino

      It's bound to happen eventually, but it's hard to say when or how. Even when the quality began to dip a little right after Avengers 1, they bounced back and now I honestly think the MCU is at the best its ever been. Not bad after 10 years.

  20. Am I wrong for feeling mildly pessimistic about Chuggaaconroy doing a Sonic Colors LP? Because I'm expecting a comment about how crappy all the Sonic games were prior to Colors, a reference to bestiality for 06, and a "Sonic hasn't been good for a while" comment. Granted we do say that ourselves, but it's definitely become a huge peeve of mine to hear, especially since it often feels like when it is said, it's said because of a bandwagon, not because they bothered to g...

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      ...go into depth about it.

    2. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      I thought we stopped saying such things.

    3. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Yeah, but I haven't forgotten the several times Chuggaaconroy did reference bestiality from 06 in several of his LPs, and maybe I am oversensitive about it, but it just rubbed me the wrong way. Especially since it gets annoying.

    4. Sixth-Rate Soma

      Sixth-Rate Soma

      Fact is, basically everything after S3&K still has a spotty reception outside our fandom. And honestly, some of it is well earned. But at the end of the day, is it really going to get you that people outside our clubhouse think differently from us?

    5. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      it isn't beatiality cause Sonic and Elise never had any kind of sexual relationship

    6. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      MY POINT EXACTLY, but Chuggaaconroy actually referenced the bestiality thing as if it was fact, and maybe I just have thin skin, or maybe I'm just sick of hearing it, but hearing it from his mouth just rubs me the wrong way.

    7. Celestia

      Celestia

      I hope he doesn't make the '06 joke, not because it would make me mad but because it'd be funny if he didn't make a /Sonic/ joke people would expect him to make in his first (and only???) /Sonic/ LP. :V

      As for the other stuff, eh. I could see him joking about ShTH and '06 or whatever but he generally doesn't seem that negative a guy. If anything I'm interested in hearing his thoughts on the series in general.

    8. Red Cap

      Red Cap

      I'm sure that he isn't going to hammer on it a lot. He's a big Sonic fan himself.

      It's just a guy making a joke about a shitty game.

    11. Celestia

      Celestia

      Oh, and you're allowed to not find it funny, but to be fair, jokes generally don't have to be completely logical. Of course it isn't /actually/ beastiality (you could make an argument it still wouldn't even if there had been actual sex, depends on if you can accurately call Sonic and friends "animals") but considering how awful Sonic/Elise was handled, it's not like anybody is ruining anything sacred by joking about it.

    12. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well hearing him get the word's definition wrong bugged me. I'm sorry I don't have a thicker skin like you guys, but hearing the phrase used the way it is just gets to me after mass repetition.

      I hate deleting stuff.

  23. When the media starts talking about how awful Sonic is when he's not pandering to classic stuff and their no friends, no story, no dark stuff mantra and generally offer no actual useful criticism or insight outside of the stuff they've peddled for the past decade or so, I just pretend they're all buck teethed smelly guys with weird cookie monster accents and their general conversations amount to constant circlejerking about how original their Sonic sucks "news" stories are.

     

     

    It keeps me sane.

     

    On a different note, is Youtube acting up for you guys, or is it just me? Because some videos seem to be loading slowly or playing sporadically.

      The media is still a problem but their power isn't what it once was, at the launch of Sonic Unleashed or even Sonic Generations.

      Far be it for me to get involved with that whole 'fake news' conversation but the fact remains that traditional gaming media outlets like IGN and Eurogamer no longer have a monopoly on the sharing of information. More and more gamers turn to social media and video sites like YouTube to find out whether a game is good or not, leaving the media in the dust.

      So the media can prattle on about their 'Sonic was never good' mantra but is nobody is listening to them does it really matter in the long run?

    6. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      If you're counting on youtubers to suddenly "see the truth" and start liking sonic then good luck lol

    7. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Kintor In a perfect world that might be the case, but it doesn't really change the fact that they still have a considerable influence and a ton of easily misinformed and gullible people willing to lap up anything. It doesn't stop them from passing on poorly written and thought out articles that deliberately skate over anything that doesn't fit into their little charade, regardless of how many facts or details get trampled over in their pursuit of ratings.

    8. Kintor

      @Josh The truth is often a relative concept, a matter of perceptions when what you're talking about is a subjective peice of art, like a video game. After all as the old saying goes: "history is written by the winners". It doesn't matter how much slander the meda has said in the past, they only exist to provide a constant stream of low quality information. Once the media stops being a factor, thanks to social media, what they've said in the past becomes irrelevant. And thus little by little the old enemies of the Sonic franchise disapear from the net...

    9. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      You DO know more of the Sonic hate nowadays comes from people like gamegrumps playing his games for laughs on youtube than anything, right? 

    10. Place

      Place

      the only enemy of the sonic community..................is itself.

    11. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      You referring to me or Kintor?

    12. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      Both of you, really.

    13. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Josh Yeah I know. I just consider the media to be an overall term for traditional and online stuff.

      They're both covering news and make articles, just the means of distribution are different.

    14. Kintor

      Kintor

      @Josh Perhaps, which just goes to show how the traditional gaming media is losing their power. When those morons at GameGrumps can get more attention then IGN could ever dream of.

      At any rate, I simply wanted to illustrate that the changing nature of the World Wide Web is elimnating one problem for us, by ensuring the decline of the media. I think that new post-media landscape offers better opportunities for the Sonic franchise. Because while GameGrumps is annoying they don't have that fascade of authority that places like IGN relied upon, which is to our advantage.

  24. @uto: "Story doesn't really matter in video games anyway." and this kind of bullshit is the reason video games are never going to go anywhere as a medium: because heaven forbid video games go somewhere as opposed to just being stuck in a nostalgia-driven time loop where nothing ever improves because people hate any minor improvements in stuff that actually DO NEED IMPROVING D:<.>

    1. Jack / Joker

      Jack / Joker

      FUCK I HATE WHEN OTHER PEOPLE HAVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS THAN ME, EVERYTHING IS SOMEHOW THEIR FAULT

    2. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      Focus on gameplay =/= nostalgia driven time loop where nothing improves

    3. Dr. Crusher
    4. Won't Stop, Just Go

      Won't Stop, Just Go

      story focus is how we get AAA cinematic bullshit so i'm not suprised some people would rather just have a simple fucking game.

    7. Cyrus

      Cyrus

      Let me rephrase that; Story doesn't matter in video games if you're the kind of person who plays video games for the sake of playing a game and not watching an interactive movie.

    8. Ferno

      Ferno

      @ both Wraith AND Missile: why not a little of both?

    9. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      @Wraith Bullshit, what about the games that tell a story USING GAME MECHANICS?! Why is storytelling suddenly some kind of evil plague?!

    10. Jack / Joker

      Jack / Joker

      For Primus' sake will you snap out of it?

    11. Won't Stop, Just Go

      I'm just describing some people's thought process. It's not a crime to want to keep it simple, you know.

      Damn chill. Always getting so stressed for nothing.

    13. Chibinuva

      Chibinuva

      Wraith has a point about games being practically like movies...

    14. sonfan1984

      sonfan1984

      Well yeah, most of these 'blockbuster' games this generations tries to be more like movies then being a videogame

  25. Do any of you hate the sound of your voice coming out from a recording?

    1. Sly4Good

      Sly4Good

      I hate my voice in general.

    2. #AR

      #AR

      YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    3. Da Blu Hedgie

      Da Blu Hedgie

      Yep I sound like a little kid.

    4. Da Blu Hedgie

      Da Blu Hedgie

      At least in my opinion.

    5. King Frosty
    6. Wentos

      Wentos

    7. Solly

      Solly

      I sound like a complete doofus.

    8. Ferno

      Ferno

      everything I record sounds mediocre

    9. Kiah

      Kiah

      Yes! It doesn't even sound like me! Either the voice is too high pitched or too deep : (

    10. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      I seemingly have a completely different accent on seperate occasions that I speak, so it's wierd to go back on a recording sometime and think "wow, my voice actually sounded like that a few days ago".

    11. Rusty Spy

      Rusty Spy

      had exactly ONE time where I actually LIKED the sound of my voice when I did a voice clip for a friends school project.

    12. Old dead account

      Old dead account

      The voice you hear from yourself when you speak is not the same as what you hear in a recording

    13. Ferno

      Ferno

      I don't hate the way my voice sounds but I fall on my face when it comes to delivery, controlling any "nervous wobblyness," and speaking clearly, as I don't do alot of projecting when I speak.

    14. Wolfy

      Wolfy

      They sound different because the sound from yourself what you're hearing in relation with your ears. So yes, the voice you record sounds like "you" from other people's perspectives, XD.
