  1. I wouldn't say the early games were serious either. There's several parodies present in those games. Like the Death Egg for example, that's an obvious reference to Vaders Death Star from Star Wars. Also Super Sonic is kinda parodying Dragonball Z and the Super Saiyans, while the seven Dragonballs take the form of seven Chaos Emeralds. Of course, it's true that not any of the games have stayed with one mood all the way through. Even Shadow probably didn't, although I can't really prove that, becouse I don't remember. On a slightly related note, I came across a website called TV tropes and they had an article there about what they called "nightmare fuel." Basically it lists more unpleasent moments in a series that can be considered frightening. What I found quite suprising is the fact that the Sonic the Hedgehog games have their own page. Then I read it and it all came back to me. I'll share some, then leave a link if anyone wants to read more. Professor Geralds speech gets a mention and I learn for the first time that And for some reason I never noticed it before. I suppose a guy saying "ready!" at the end, wasn't a good enough clue for me. Sonic Spinball. Need I say more? It has to be the only game that looks totally serious, dark and disturbing all the way through, imo. During the final fight with Black Doom in the Last Story, if you take long enough, http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/NightmareFuel/SonicTheHedgehog
  2. Personally I like both. I don't really think they have stayed with one mood over the other, think about it. Adventure - Serious Adventure 2 - Serious Heroes - Light-hearted Battle - Serious Shadow - Serious *duh* 06 - Serious Secret Rings - Serious Rush - Serious Rivals - Serious Unleashed - Light-hearted Rivals 2 - Serious Black Knight - Light/Serious Rush Adventure - Light-hearted Colours - Light-hearted That's how I view the games, but others may think something else. But epic is always nice.
  3. I liked Sonic Colours too. Although that probably doesn't say much considering I'm kinda a big "yes man" anyway. I liked both Sonic Unleashed versions, SatBK, SatSR, Sonic Rush Adventure, Sonic Heroes, Sonic Battle and even Sonic Shuffle. But I do dislike Shadow (the game) and Rivals 1 & 2. Anyway..... Some of the things that have been pointed out here are stuff I never really noticed myself. I'd like to think that theirs more positive stuff about the game then negative, like the writing, it's very funny and some Sonic games have tried to be funny before and failed, imo. On the Wii version, Plus, since the DS version is like Sonic Rush that's a good thing to me too.
  4. Good evening. After a long hiatus from all things internet. (for personal reasons) I finally returned 2 or 3 months ago, and am ready to start sharing again. Although not much new has been done yet, I'll show some more classics that didn't appear in the previous post. Well, where can I start? How about Fleetway Sonic the Comic Super Sonic? What about 2 classic Sonic characters Cosplaying as Capcom Characters? Mighty The Armadillo as Street Fighter: Ryu Nack The Weasel/Fang The Sniper as Devil May Cry: Dante Something differant? How about Anime? Saber Marionette J? Fullmetal Alchemist? Or Azumanga Diaoh? Over the past 4 years I've been working on a Fan Comic featuring the original Knuckles Chaotix cast, as well as Nack and Ray. (Knuckles, Vector, Charmy, Espio, Mighty, Nack & Ray the main characters.) And after lots of hard work, it will finally surface in the coming months, here's some teasers of the story. A mystery character based on a fact here: http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c119/Danfield/Untitled-1.jpg (6th one down) Deadly alternate forms. And lots of epic battles. (sketch form, picture not yet finished) Thank you for your time, I hope you enjoyed what you have seen. This is Daniel signing off.....
  5. Just to let you know, I am happy to offer any drawings for the Sonic Relief and Age of Steam projects, if you need any.

  6. Well, I'm thinking, just becouse he showed no sign of depression, doesn't mean he wasn't. Back in the day I would act clownish in front of people so they would like me. My school persona and home persona were complete opposites. I was quiet and reserved at home. Ironically, my friends were abnormally nice towards me, so I suspect they already knew something deep down was wrong, even before I did. Although I still don't beleive it. Depression can be passed down to generations too. My mother has depression, my grand-mother had it. I just find it hard to beleive that you can inherit a mood, or way of thinking. But I'm obviously wrong. If he wasn't depressed then I can only think of one other reason he would do what he did. It is kinda out there though.... Supposing he could handle what just happened to him, but got this idea to get back at those that filmed him, by taking his own life. The pranksters will take the heat for it, and he would've got some kind of revenge. It's a underhanded trick, but not impossible. However, there is just now way we could ever know now. It's just a random thought to float around you all.
  7. Hey now, Siriku. I don't know if you are, but it almost sounds like your attacking Mahzes, becouse of his opinion. Even though he said at the end that.... I'm afraid I have similiar views, but for differant reasons. I wasn't born like this. Over 20 years of unprovoked abuse can build up a strong desire for retrobution or general hate and dark thoughts. There's nothing you can say to change that. My opinion is also based on my own plan to take my life. Which, obviously, was stopped when I finally realised what it was doing to the people I care about, and it showed how much they truly cared for me. So....let me just remind myself of what else has been said so far..... Is prison meant for punishment or rehabilitation? My view? Both. Lets just face it, if you do something wrong and nothing happens, you think it's fine and keep doing it. So some people have to learn the hard way, to stop being a git. Rehabilitation alone, isn't enough. If that was the case, then drink addicts, and heavy gamblers would be in the same class. Besides, nobody wants to go to the loved ones house and say "The chaps that indirectly coursed your sons death have gone into therapy". It's getting late and I'm tired, so I'll end quickly. Just remember, it they where 18 or over, then they are no longer classed as kids, and should've known better.(Thats what the law states in the UK(I think)) Besides, I always thought it was tradition with a prank to do it on someone you know well, or have your own television show.... So, yeah, I popped up, becouse I didn't like how this topic was changing into a large argument. Thank you for your time, I'm going back to my cave now.
  8. I was away during 2010 and did participate in 09, I reckon I should be able to take part in 2011. I can't speak for others but all I need to get started on a project is a theme, a pencil and some paper. And if the theme is humour then that's already taken care of. If the 2010 event lasted two months and was slow to get started then maybe it would help to shorten it. I'm not sure how long to make it though, but I was thinking that one month could be too short. But thats just me....(4 or 5 weeks?) I'll get back to ya, if I can think of anything else...
  9. Hehe, Darkified. Sounds like an excellant evil twin. lol

    Run for your lives, it's Darkified. He'll annoy you be saying how much he enjoyed Shadow the Hedgehog and how perfect Sonic 06 is. As well as his love for Sonic X. XD

    For me, that would be the ultimate nightmare. lol btw, thanks for the comment. :)

  10. Welcome one, welcome all. So many new posts, where should I begin?....hmm..."It Doesn't Matter" Hi there RedEchidna, you are "Unknown from ME" .....however I don't know the answer to your question, I'm sure there's a "deeper" reason why they didn't include Ray, maybe "We Can" hire "Team Chaotix" to find out why? or it could be a fault of "This Machine." ....but if there isn't a good reason, I'll show them "What I'm made of." Welcome Dark Kaiban & Boom, your posts where very short. You should "Open Your Heart" more, but it's fine, you "Live and Learn" after all, and sometimes you just have some "Lazy Days." Greetings Pikachu in a Sombrero, I have to admit, I've never heard that joke before. No worries about the attitude, mate. I'm sure we all have "Dreams of An Absolution." Plus I reckon there are several people here that prefer the 3D to 2D games, we all love differant aspects of "His World," they are "Endless Possibilities." Hello Amesuki, lolz, At least you didn't "Throw it All Away" and start a new account. It's good to meet a fellow like me who would "Dive into the Mellow" like me, and only care about fun. It's "My Sweet Passion." Good luck with your projects dude. JazyKuun. Aww, you sound like you have a creative mind like me, I'm learning to "Believe in Myself" and so should you.(believe in yourself, not believe in me... ) There's no need to be distant, your welcome here to talk anytime. *Gasp* Welcome back Flint, I think I remember you. I'm glad "It has Come to This," Now let's "Kick the Rock" That's it for now, this post was hard. I can think of only one last thing to say.... "All Hail Shadow" -Shot! (How many song titles did you spot in the following post?)
  11. oh...hmm...I've been playing Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies alot recently. It's freakin awesome, I reckon!! When I'm not on that, I would play on Transformers: War for Cybertron(XB360-v) ....and I'm quite addicted to it, and I only need 3 more acheivements to complete the list. Yay! XD I think I'll be going back on it soon, to kick some......posterior...on multiplayer. ^-^ ....or have my posterior handed to me on multiplayer.... 0_o
  12. Well, welcome back Peter. Hmm...short and sweet post, I like it. Welcome Vantoggle, I'm sorry for your loss...still.....always nice to meet a fellow animation appreciator and artist. I'm Dan, but you probably already know that from my other post...make yourselfs at home and "Remember, no cameras permitted and only food purchased at McJiggy's can be eaten within."
  13. Whats this?... No one has greeted our new recruits?! A crime that must be rectified I reck-on!!! Greetings Hazel, zer0M4ss, Shigeru Akari, Gemma and KKM. Welcome to the forum, my name is Daniel, but you can call me Dan, and I am your welcome...er. Please enjoy your stay. Hmm....seems like some of you have been here before....well, welcome back. You traitors! *ahem*...I mean...nice to see you again...*cough* lol
  14. Wow, for a moment there this looked like a Sonic CD discussion.... anyway....I'm interested in Sonic 4, and one of the main reasons is becouse the story is after the events of Sonic & Knuckles, I hope they have a way to show that in the game. Like wreckage of the deathegg or Egg-robos returning. Apart from that, there isn't really any problems I have with the game, I haven't been keeping track of the details so I might be slightly out of the loop.... Stuff like enviroment on levels, graphics and character designs just don't bother me.....
  15. Wow, it's like Disney for adults. lol I liked it, which is strange since I tend to hate most CGI animations, thanks for sharing Advent. ....blast....there was something else I wanted to say but now I forgot it....I'll come back later.... ^^;
  16. Gosh, I was just passing and noticed this topic, as a plasticine veteran it would be a crime if I didn't post something. lol (Plus I'm like Top Gear and have seen that amazing garden also.) Like Cipher, I would play with it when I was little too, and since then every couple of years I go back to it and start creating again.... One of my major inspirations was a series of short films you may or may not have heard of called 'Wallace & Gromit' Here's a picture: And if you want to know more about them, checkout this link: http://www.wallaceandgromit.com/ Wallace and Gromit is a stop-motion animation, and the characters are also made out of plasticine. Here's some I made sometime ago if you wanna see... and.... Unfortunately my camera skills are not as good as my plasticine skills.... ^^;
  17. Cool, yet creepy. XD I gotta say, you did a really good job on those eyes. The shape and positions on the face all look normal to me. But personally it's the shading and colouring job that adds alot of character to them, the darkness implies evilness, although I don't know the second guy at all, but I'm very familier with the other 2. Nice job, I give a thumbs up.
  18. I don't know if this will help, but there's a DVD on sale. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SPRING-AND-CHAOS-DVD...93%3A1|294%3A50 Ends in 15 hours of when this post was made. ....thats what it says, anyway.... I have a question about this whole fansubbing thing, since I came across this article(that I haven't fully read yet.) about how it can be damaging to the anime industry. Is it true?.....I can see the logic, since companies don't make money from fansubbing, and they can make extra money if it is dubbed over to the US. What do you guys think? I personally don't download anime becouse I don't feel right watching videos on my computer. I don't mind waiting for an anime to be realeased on to DVD. Plus I have the money to buy them,*shot* ......although I don't have the storage space. ^^;
  19. I don't know jack about current music stuff, but I always figured that companies are working out(or have worked out) a way for downloading music legally. Which is a smart idea anyway, since they should know that they can't stop it happening..... But Tornado added something interesting here, if she was sharing the music files on a wide scale. One of the first things that is said when you buy a new game/DVD/CD is to not create copies or redistribute them far and wide. It's a big judge and jury no-no. So it sounds like that this is the true crime on this case IMO Besides, it was pretty dumb to decline paying something like $5.000, only to have to pay $1.9mill.
  20. Initiating reinstallation of SSMBs Danfield software....bzzz..... reinstalling...5%........10%..........15%...............installation failed.....software contains multiple errors....suggest complete shutdown and erase all files then try again...... What!? Dammit!! XD oh well, greetings everybody, as it was my birthday some weeks ago I increased my Anime and Manga Collection, I will share with you all my newest purchases. hmm...must remember.......okay, here we go... Anime DVDs Galaxy Angel Z 1,2 & 3 Lucky Star 5 DNAngel 4 Get Backers 8 Piece Maker 1 Complete Series Set: Zero no Tsukaima series 1 & 2 Pani Poni Dash 5 R.O.D TV 7 Manga The Big Adventures of Majoko Figurines Aruruu from Utawerumono Asuka from Neon Genisis Evangelion Otome from D.C.II Dacapo II Michiru from To Heart 2 Another Days ....phew....
  21. Thank you for the Birthday comment. I figured nobody would have bothered. lol

    I'm not sure what the average age of members are here, but I guess I'm one of the older ones.... ^^;

  22. Thank you for the birthday comment. I've been gone for so long, I figured nobody would remember me. lol

    It's also nice to know that people like my art. :)

  23. Don't just stand there looking so down, of course we read Manga, or at least I do. :nod: Although I find it very rare to read a Manga that hasn't been adapted to an Anime, Yotsuba&! is the only one I can think of off the top of my head. There's probably more then that though. :shrug:
  24. This suddenly turned into the FMA topic or something? Not that it's a bad thing I suppose, but being in the UK I don't have to worry about it being aired on TV becouse it won't be. Even if it was, I probably still won't watch it, since the advertisements inbetween annoy me to extreme rage. So I don't mind waiting for a dub DVD to show up or just import a JAP one. Since I don't like watching shows on a computer, it just doesn't seem right to me. I'm trying to learn the language anyway, so a jap DVD isn't such a bad idea to me. Anybody seen any other Anime worth mentioning that isn't FMA?

    Cartoon Deaths

    Hmph...I didn't realise how much animated death there is after reading all this. And now it's starting to annoy me. Maybe it could be an easy way to fill kids in on the whole death thing, but there is such a thing as going too far. At least with some movies you don't actually see them die, like falling from a great height, there will always be a chance they survived. Seems like a waste in my opinion, I watch animation to forget about the crappy facts of life, not to be reminded of them. I've felt the pain of losing someone important to me and it scarred me in such a way that I hate death and I hate love for making me feel like this.....
