    June 22nd: "Sonic games lately have been bleh"


    June 24th: "Sonic games lately have been bleh"

  2. Is it too late to say that the Sonic symphony "won" E3?

  3. Yep. As a Steam user and physical buyer for so many years, SEGA basically gave me the middle finger. No idea if the stupid Epic deal is even a timed thing like they have been for other games, but the lack of options is seriously making me not even want to get the game. Seeing SEGA do shitty, anti-conumer business practices like this is an absolute shame.
  4. The more I hear about Colors Ultimate, the more I learn about these strange business decisions they made that seem to be a recurring theme here. In the past 3 hours, I've gone from "I love Colors, this looks great" to "Do I even want to get this?"
  5. I'm so happy to see Sonic news happening again.

    I certainly hope that whatever you have to share with us is good, SEGA.

  6. Rushed and unpolished games, poor writing, and poor level designs didn't help matters either. Those, in my opinion, did the biggest damage to the games. When I think of an ambitious Sonic game that kept with the feel of Sonic, I think of Unleashed. I think of Adventure 2. Hell, even 3D Blast was kind of ambitious in its own way.
  7. Maybe so, but I think fans do underestimate just how much SEGA keep them in mind.
  8. I'm optimistic about Sonic as a whole. it feels like all signs are pointing to the very real possibility that SEGA is finally beginning to feel comfortable with being ambitious with the brand again. I loved Sonic Forces, but it had been just too safe. Lost World was experimental, but not ambitious. The last time I felt that amibitious charm from a Sonic game was Colors, and that was mainly due to how the brand was up to that time. And any time in the last 7 years SEGA wanted to get a little more creative and ambitious, it went into Sonic Boom. Instead, Classic Sonic had been getting all the attention for years. Because they had to be "safe". You know what I miss? SEGA making Sonic games maintain that Sonic charm we've known for so long, but also make the game some life. Forces and Lost World feel lifeless to me. Even Mania, despite all the love and care and passion it got, also doesn't have that charm and life because I'm too burnt out from the safe and overused Classic Sonic to feel it anymore. Team Sonic Racing had been the peak of this. I don't think I have ever played a game so lifeless, so lacking in charm, so boring as that game. The thing I feel about playing too safe is that, SEGA's not guaranteeing theiir game is going to get a 10/10, or even a 9. SEGA's simply guaranteeing that, by doing this, their game isn't going to be a 3 or a 4. You can avoid absolute trainwrecks all you want, but after a string of lifeless 6s, it wears you down. But I think that's finally ending. SEGA helped contribute to a movie that, despite straying from the main canon, had been a very ambitious move that had been a massive success. And the things we're hearing about Prime are making this SEGA's most amibitious Sonic cartoon since Sonic X. And the vibes we've been getting about the next Sonic games are suggesting that a new era is upon us. One where it seems like SEGA's finally trying hard to make these games the very best that they can be. Creativity and amibition seem to be finally coming back to the Sonic franchise. I can feel it, and I am all for it.
  9. I think there's a very simple reason why Mike Pollock has lasted so long as Dr. Eggman. Roger had "Sonic's too deep" criticisms. Cindy "sounds too like Minnie Mouse". There's some that felt Shadow's voice was off. And Tails' voice. I don't recall anyone minding Knuckles' voice, but I also don't think anyone outright loved it either. And even though these criticisms aren't as widespread as I feel they were a decade ago, they haven't completely gone away. And because of that, there's been a little pressure to find voice actors that could do the roles better. But Just about everyone in the Sonic fanbase loves Mike and how he voices Eggman. i've rarely seen, if at all, a single criticism about Pollock's Eggman. If it ain't broke, and a lot of Sonic fans don't think Eggman's broke, then don't fix it.
  10. Like...they don't even need to go into full detail yet. Just let us know what the VA cast is going to be like from here on out, and if this is part of a major shake-up of the brand or not. Just...say something.
  11. I feel like it's odd that so much has been happening over the past week, and the only thing we've heard from SEGA about all of this is...well...this. Writers seem to be gone, voice actor cast departures, Sonic Prime reveal...all seemingly happening at the same time. But, nothing from SEGA. I really feel like it's time for SEGA to clear things up because now everyone's just wondering what the hell is going on.
  12. i can't think straight with so much Sonic news happening.

    ...Been ages since that happened.

    1. Rabbitearsblog


      I know!  I'm still trying to process everything that's happening and I still can't wrap my mind over what is going on!

    1. KHCast


      I’m reminded of that scene from one of the old sonic cartoons where Sonic is wearing a plumber outfit lol

  15. It's still hard to believe that I'm seeing articles on the TSS site that I wrote now. A site I followed for 10+ years is now a site I work for. Wow.

  16. The cartoon as a whole, easily. It was so amusing to watch. Sadly, even if Rise of Lyric did better, I feel that Cartoon Network's incompetence would've doomed the show anyway. I think SEGA would've put more effort into saving it though, maybe enabling the cartoon to go for a season longer than it actually did. Cartoon Network clearly didn't care for the show, good Boom games or not. But there's no doubt in my mind that the Boom branch would still be around today if Rise of Lyric was actually a good game. That game is 100% to blame for the decline of the Sonic Boom branch.
  17. Thank you to everyone that congratulated me on joining the TSS writing team. ❤️

    I hope you're all looking forward to my work. 😃

      What happened? Just curious, not trying to pry. 

    2. Dejimon11


      Look it's not your fault. 

    3. Polkadi~☆


      Trust me, Donnie, you did nothing wrong. It was a sinking ship, and you just happened to jump off at the right time.

    4. Maxtiis


      Damn, I didn't even see what happened until just now. Real shame to see the site go. And from the sound of things it wasn't your fault Donnie. You've always been a competent writer and reporter.

    5. VisionaryofSUPER


      These things just happen out of our control sometimes man.

      You are a good guy Donnie. What happened was not your fault and you shouldn't beat yourself up about it. You are very appreciated in this fandom, remember that.

      Seeing as you worked six years for TSSZ, I can't blame you for feeling hurt. But you did the right thing leaving. Not your fault that Tristan got too big of an ego.

      @Pelvic WOO! engine The owner of The Super Sonic Zone (Tristan) compared Black Lives Matter to the plots of Sonic Adventure 2 and Forces. Rather than own up to it, the owner scrubbed the entire account and shut down the site.

  21. Sorry I'm not saying much.

    I'm just at a loss for words right now.

    And my free time has increased some as well.

      I saw your tweet and thought that was a pretty awesome thing you did. Seems like you have a lot of other people who've got your back, too.

    2. Ellipsis-Ultima


      Agreed. Honestly you did the right thing.

      Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

      Best of luck in your future endeavors.

    3. Zaysho


      Been following what's happening. Good on you, man. Take care of yourself and best of luck in everything.

    4. Polkadi~☆


      Just caught up with what happened.
