    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Hey I think I discovered why Fourdraine's Vector was drawn off. I was doing a random search for Croco drawings and it turned out she's done fanart of SMRPG in the past. If that's her first point of reference, pass over of traits is far more likely.
  2. Congratulations, Wartortle evolved into...Wartortle but bigger! 

    Took over 2 decades to discover that.

    Sonic-related pet peeves?

    Going by the Japanese Sonic Jam profile for Sonic (which said 15-16, not 16 only), they're intended to just be a similar age. That hasn't really changed.
  4. He's not been that inconsistent. Mighty and Ray are still not allowed in the modern games (which was likely why they were sealed since there was no classic branch), Aaron's thoughts have no bearing on things (recall that one tweet of Modern Mighty from the Social team), and all the mandates done to the comics Chaotix-wise have been to separate them more and more from anything classic. Also assets being referenced in Generations and Mania doesn't mean their characters have to come with it. They know where they come from, but nothing Sonic Team has done suggests they want them to go back there.

  6. Okay, so SEGA treating the Chaotix (Vector, Espio, Charmy) as modern-only is something I've been saying for a while and is supported by how the mandates have fallen in the post-reboot Archie comics/IDW/Mania etc. That's not the unpopular opinion. What the unpopular opinion is, is that I think I've come to understand why they're treated this way, and it's all to do with how they transitioned to the modern era. For the characters that exist in both timelines (Sonic, Amy, Knuckles, Tails, Eggman and Metal Sonic), their reintroduction into modern was Sonic Adventure, and while it was a bold new direction, it basically did a semi-soft retcon of their characters. So while certain aspects were changed (Amy and Eggman's designs, a few personality facets), they were still supposed to be the same entities, and the game even references each of the classic games they debuted in on-screen (even if weirdly since it was using the modern looks and pre-existing assets). The Chaotix are unique in that they did not have this reintroduction. As said in the now infamous (if you're big into the Chaotix anyway) quite, "In [Iizuka's] mind, [he] didn't bring back the Chaotix", they were given a hard retcon and brought in as if they were brand new to the games (despite also being there to appeal to nostalgia). But what does this have to do with the classic versions not appearing now there's a classic branch? In the process of retconning the Chaotix, it essentially left their classic forms dead to use since they had been explicitly supplanted by their modern selves. This is different to any of the classic-exclusive cast, as they were just left dormant and were therefore free to appear when the window popped up for them.
  7. There's all this to and fro on whether the cartoon will be classic or modern...

    What if it's a movie tie-in?

      What if it's a Mania sequel where Classic Sonic goes through another potal that takes him to the movie dimension and will appear in the movie with the other sonic!

      But that's the third time I did that joke.

       

      Realistically, what if it was more like the cartoon tie-in for Godzilla '98 that redeem the films problems and basically be what Sonic/Godzilla is supposed to be.

      Watch it somehow be better than the actual film

  8. Reading through that entire arc summary made me realise...how Mina would not be possible in any other circumstance aside from the one that pre-reboot Sonic let itself get into. Like, the whole thrust of her arc is her being unable to fight the big fight against Eggman, whereas in games anyone can do it. Stands in direct contrast to the likes of Cream, Charmy (who aside from flight are pretty much regular children) and Tangle, who'd I'd say is Mina's antithesis in terms of concept.
  9. It is kinda surprising thinking about it, since the rest of the game was more bent around promoting Warped. I'm guessing it was because the game is supposed to be set on N.Sanity Island and not through time, so they went with locales you'd feasibly find there. And they have a point when my first observation of Dingo Canyon was "Wait, did Dingodile drag real estate through time with him?" since that's chosen to co-op the motorcycle theme. That being said, if Spyro gets a track, there shouldn't be such a restriction for any other track.
  10. Do they? N.Tropy and Fake Crash never had official home tracks (Penta didn't either, but Blizzard Bluff is a logical assumption), and out of all the tracks Slide Coliseum, Turbo Track, Mystery Caves and Sewer Speedway were unclaimed by anyone.
  11. Huh, weird to think that Coco Park was the only home track from the base roster we hadn't seen anything of yet.
  12. I don't think they'll have a flag bearer for this one.
  13. The UK got season 1 really quickly, but to be honest it looks like season 2 might be left to rot and never get a DVD release. Still wouldn't be the worst home media treatment to a Sonic show in the UK.

    They got driven off in the middle of the ASRT leadup due to how much abuse they were getting. I was there and I remember that clear as day.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    To give some credit, I think Sonic was in a very unique position compared to most other comics. You had literal decades where the comic had next to zero oversight from the licencor (aside from a seldom done poke to promote their latest game), then after some shenanigans they clamped down on aspects finally. Problem is that fans of the comic which had become very different from the games then had to snap back to realign whether they liked it or not. And playing the waiting game to see if some of them could be lifted to go back to the way it was didn't work; they've only gotten stricter really, to the point where characters who were a team in pre-reboot Archie can't even exist in the same universe now. Most comics do one of two things; 1) Set the ground rules from the start and watch the content, which keeps things consistent provided it stays within its own continuity (this is most licensed stuff). 2) Embrace the massive amounts of changes with a continuity and tone that can chop and change any time (this is mostly your big self-published books by DC and Marvel). Sonic didn't do either, only going with option 1 less than six years ago (with a year-long gap in there for good measure).
