      I predict a Rick Roll from F4F. They'll post a YouTube video with Metal Sonic as Rick Astley singing that classic song...XD

    5. Rabid-Noodles

      Rabid-Noodles

      So would that mean it was you tubes fault for all the delay? xD

      So what will it be, come 4PM, a newsletter, or new pre-order page... or another announcement... getting bored.

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Come 4pm we'll be told what time they might reveal it if they're in the right mood.

    11. Detective Shadzter

      Detective Shadzter

      @Hogfather: It will be a newsletter with a link to their pre-order page where you can pre-order an announcement of the proper time that you can pre-order your Metal Sonic statue.

    12. Rabid-Noodles

      Rabid-Noodles

      ^ xD i struggled to read that.

      If someone gets the newsletter (since they'll never all go out at once) be a dear and post the link in the auctions and items of interest topic.

      Good to know that we can't like something without having to acknowledge we're "blind" first. Stay classy.

      Seriously, you can replace boom with anything else that isn't out yet.

      "You shouldn't criticise this game unless you intend to buy it"

      "This game will be good, Sega said so"

      "You shouldn't criticise a game if you don't like it"

      Are just some of the comments I've seen around the internet's today.

    20. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      @Hogfather.

      Ehhhh, fair enough. For me it's kind of hard to tell how good the game will be. I'm just cautiously optimistic towards it personally.

    21. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Oh for fucks sake.

      Nobody is saying you can't like something.

      But saying "Oh I'm sure it'll turn out great, it was only a demo"

      or

      "Well Sega said it'll look different and be better here is my money for a pre-order."

      That is blind faith.

    22. WhoWhatMan

      WhoWhatMan

      You should of have added that to your status since it's such a broad statement

    23. -Ace-
    24. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      Does anyone actually have blind faith in it any more? I've seen pretty much nothing but negativity lately.

    25. -Mark-

      -Mark-

      I mean, until recently I'd have agreed, but these last few weeks, opinions have plummeted.

    26. WhoWhatMan

      @Homen, the software I use was made in 2001. It can't actually do transparent images too well.. but don't worry your avatar will be fine.

      Wait FLYBOYS A YAOI FANGIRL? o_o *runs away~ ;w;*

    3. Tatsumaki

      Tatsumaki

      @VEDJ: Eh, any person of any gender can like anything. But I found out that she was a girl when someone called was talking to Flyboy with a female pronoun. XD

    4. gato

      gato

      >Implying there can't be a a Yaoi fanBOY?

    5. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      I'm not a yaoi fangirl/boy, and kinda resent the implication that I am just because my favourite pairing is m/m :\

    6. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      I'm really not particularly into gay pairings. Most of my favourites are straight (Jessie/James, Bunnie/Antoine, Sally/Knuckles for example). I just happen to really like a couple of slash pairings too ;_; That doesn't make me a yaoi fan-anything.

    7. King Frosty
    8. King Frosty

      King Frosty

      And same. ;w;

    9. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      I don't mean to snap ^^; I just do get kind of annoyed when people assume I obsess over 'yaoi' pairings when a) I'm not really into animé/manga, so Japanese terms don't fit me, and B) I like pairings for the dynamic not the gender ;_;

    10. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Meh, you support more slash pairings than I do, and I'm freakin' infamous for it.

    11. King Frosty

      King Frosty

      BBBB-But you're a Cloudcuckoolander/Yangire! ;_;

    12. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      And by 'Yaoi fangirlism', I meant "take your fondness of one particular pairing above all your other favourite pairings" anyway.

    13. Cola

      Cola

      I thought Flyboy was a guy. If we're gonna trick newbs, then keep on not displaying your widely known gender. XD

    14. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      But it also implies that I care about the gender; that I fangirl it because it's 'yaoi', which I don't ;_;

    15. Tatsumaki

      Tatsumaki

      VEDJ's last post, is so right.

      I mean, it's okay to be a Yaoi Fangirl, or a A fangirl of anything.

      Now, if a person's well, OBSSESSED about it. Well, that person's got issues.

    16. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      Welcome to the club, Cola XD Mwahahaha.

    17. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      @Tatsu, yes it's fine to be a yaoi fangirl, but I'm not. I'm just a Sontails fan, and that pairing just happens to be slash. If my favourite pairing was hetero would I be a hetero-fangirl? :3

    18. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Well, I know you don't support it just because. I mean, that'd be hypocritical of me if I didn't.

    19. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      Like I said, didn't mean to snap. I just don't really like the implication that just because I support a slash pairing I'm a yaoi fangirl/boy/thing. I'm not really into yaoi in general.

    20. Tatsumaki

      Tatsumaki

      @Flyboy: Yeah, pretty much. ^^

      Unless it involves more intimate things, then it's ero. XD

    21. Flyboy Fox

      Flyboy Fox

      I'm just a fan of whatever catches my fancy, regardless of who's involved. Don't stick me in your silly boxes =P

    22. Tatsumaki

      Tatsumaki

      Haha, yep. That's pretty much what I think about those things. (like for example, i think sonamy, sonicxblaze or anything else should totally happen because i think it could work well ._.)

      Seriously? When does liking Sonic x Tails make you a yaoi fangirl? Does liking Sonamy make you a Hetero-fangirl? o.O;

      Why did my status become this!? I wanted to to havbe a chuckle with flyboy fox! How the hell did it turn into... this!?

      Would've been nice for a link.

       

      I still have my doubts, but maybe they had planned it on NX after all. And maybe the possibility of Sonic being in Dimensions is a compromise to no 25th anniversary Sonic game.

      It's got to be bullshit, but the way it's written, it certainly sounds like there won't be a new game this year.

    11. McGroose

      McGroose

      LOL all of those fucking mind games and announcements of announcements and no actual game?
      I actually came to the conclusion about a week ago that we may not be getting an anniversary game.

      Even if we are, waiting this long to release so much as a teaser trailer is incredibly fucking stupid. Sega makes some really shitty marketing/advertising decisions. I know that Lost world was revealed at late may, but we at least had some information prior to the gameplay trailer. (Lost Hex picture, Silhouettes of Deadly Six, other small tidbits, etc) 

    12. Ferno

      Ferno

      well maybe they've finally learned not to rush just to meet an anniversary or christmas deadline. dissapointing yes, but maybe this will lead to something huge and polished

    13. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      @McGroose you came with that conclusion last week. I came to that conclusion after finding out what the cryptic message was

    15. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      @Ferno Rushed games are the result of bad management. It's not asking much for a game to be released on time. As for whether or not we're getting something big and polished, I'm only half betting on the latter.

    16. Hui

      Hui

      fire and ice will becoming out

    17. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Why in the world should anyone care about Fire and Ice?

    18. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Cuz I enjoyed Shattered Crystal for what it's worth. And I am slightly looking for to it's sequel.

    19. Ferno

      Ferno

      @Indigo Rush there will be salt if the game ends up being short and arcadey after like 6 years of dev time

    20. Hui

      Hui

      nah, normal people don't care about F&S. 

      me however, i was close to preordering it.

    21. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      To add to Nep there is nothing wrong with SEGA just announcing what the next Sonic game is. It doesn't have to come out this year just give us an announcement of some sort.  

    22. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      So for all this hub-bub about Sonic being old, we're ultimately getting a constantly delayed handheld sequel to a game that was somewhat less trashy than its big console brother, and the bright side to that is that "well the original game was enjoyable for what it's worth."

      I go back to my original response: garbage anniversary.

    23. Dee Dude

      Guys. I think Pigdad's trolling us.

      I'm not arguing here that this is a garbage anniversary. I've been thinking of it that way for months now. 

      And honestly my expectations for Fire and Ice are extremely low but if that's all I got then I'll takeit. I'll just make sure I don't buy it full price.

    25. JaidynReiman

      JaidynReiman

      If there's not a major anniversary title, but the next game comes out is actually a stellar game, hey, I'm not complaining.

      If you actually fell off the high route of homing attacks and boosting, and had to deal with bad controls because of that, that doesn't matter, I'm just disappointed in you :V

    3. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Lol oh no I aced the stages. Have video to prove it.

       

      But... well.. level design is far from the only problem this game has.

      Not gonna like, I am fully awaiting a write up that blows whatever small issues there are out of proportion, no offense. :T I mean we'd already know what it'd be that's wrong with the game in advance if it's not controls; we've seen enough of it to know what the demo is made of...

    9. Waveshocker Sigma

      Uh, Deleter? You wanna try that second sentence again? I'm kinda confused. D:

      ?

      "We already know what would be wrong with the game, in advance, if it's not the controls"

      Does that fix it? (man, I really do have bad wording-habits, don't I, lol)

      Alright, I've gotta ask. Did Modern Sonic's gameplay feel more like he did in Unleashed/Generations, or Colours?

    15. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      Kind of a mix between Colors and Generations. Lack of drift makes it lean towards Colors.

    16. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Honestly. His gameplay feels like neither.

      Its changed in a few ways and some ways are not for the better sadly.

    17. NegaMetallix

      NegaMetallix

      Ah, crap. I mean, I'm kinda glad it doesn't seem to be like Colours, but still...

      Was the demo build the same one from Gamescom and PAX (with the Tag-Team stage)?

      NegaMetallix

      Seriously?! ...Wow. I'll have to see if it's the same when I go on Saturday.

      At the very least, I'll be able to try the game out multiple times.

    24. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      To be fair. Sega actually had a REALLY good both.

      They had Mania on 8 systems. The full game not demos! People were playing till they got bored and asking anyone waiting if they wanted to take over. 

      I didn't count them. But there was a round 4 Forces pods per row so.... around.... 20 pods in total? 

      Combination of Xbox and PS4. 

      Oh they did NOT have any switches running it. Even Nintendo's own both didn't have it. But it did have Mania.

      So that's 20 pods with a game which takes less than 5 min to beat every stage in the demo. So really if the wait time was over 2 min for anyone who was number 1 in the line... something was VERY wrong.

      Also really interesting. They deleted the game from the system when it was closing time. No repeat of the Sonic 2 beta for this one.

    25. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      @Mayor D: I saw you bring up how many button presses it takes to beat the tag team level in the TGS interview topic

      How about this instead:

      T7JX2UW.png

      None of the gear cogs even require you to jump over them, as they connect neatly to each other, allowing safe passage...

      Of the actually required jumps in the level, there are:

      jss65hm.png

      pKI3VSI.png

      apB5hCh.png

      Three if you pick the blue wisp or any other incompatible wispon for the stage

      One if you choose the burst wisp (the ledge in the bottom one that you need to either jump over or Homing Attack up)

      And absolutely zero times if you have the lightning wisp :V
       

      Footage for reference:

      (Some people will probably hate me for this, but I just want to see this fact I found get some recognition, pls forgive me ;n;)

  12. Why are people still trying to say that this character looks like Marine?

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      Her design hasn't changed just because she's been confirmed to not be Marine.

    2. Felix

      Felix

      ...Because she does have visual similarities to Marine, even though we both know they're not the same character?

    3. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      She looks fuck all like her.

      There is absolutely nothing like her other than the fact it's a girl and a tone of orange. Thats it.

    4. JezMM

      JezMM

      We've already had this debate like ten times in the topic and it's not even relevant anymore, why are you trying to hang onto it? The "it's not Marine" people were right congratulations sorry we didn't throw you guys a parade.

    5. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      lol why am I trying to hang onto it?

      yeah because I'm the one going trying to convince people that it looks like her after a clear render is released blatantly showing that it looks nothing like her.

      Seriously point out how it looks like her.

    6. Clades Jin

      Clades Jin

      Hoggy, this isn't worth discussing in that status updates

    7. JezMM

      JezMM

      She still has the same colour scheme she always did, she still has the raccoon like-facial markings that seemed obviously raccoon until her tail was confirmed to not be a racoon's, she still has the boomerang motif that immediately reminds of the only other australian-influence character in the series

      Her base colour is orange, thats it. Only the base colour matches.

      The facial markings are totally different.

      Marine never had a boomerang.

      she still has the boomerang motif that immediately reminds of the only other australian-influence character in the series

      I had to just copy and paste since you didn't read the first time

      No-one's trying to convince anyone of anything, if it looks like Marine to someone it looks like Marine to someone why can you not just get over this.

    13. ImPantsAtThis

      @Hogfather: Sticks has a boomerang shaped head because of the pony tails. Marine had 2 boomerang shaped ponytails.

    16. Clades Jin
    17. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The only similarities are generals shape (she's a sonic character, go figure), is orange is with brown highlights and has blue eyes.

      So that's enough for people to say they look alike, even if I don't agree and think it was obvious from the get to that they weren't the same.

    18. The KKM

      The KKM

      Have I got news for you, Hoggy- she does look like Marine!

    19. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Here is a Smurf, it is blue, and it has a dome shaped head.

      Therefore, it's Sonic.

      Yep that's absoloutely the same comparison well done. Y'know after this thread died I thought "oh good he didn't stoop to the level of childish over the top counter-examples" but nope there it is

    22. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      I fail to see how it's any more ridiculous that the arguments you put forward which don't even relate to Marine in some cases.

      She has a boomerang... so what? Marine didn't.

      Colour scheme is the same... no it's not. It's completely different.

      Marks around the eyes are the same... no they're not, they're completely different.

      Got any others?

    23. JezMM

      JezMM

      For fuck's sake man no-one said they were the same, we said they were similar. And I've already explained -twice- now that yes, Marine didn't have a boomerang, but she was australian, so a boomerang heavy design evokes that.

      Christ why are you so desperate to "win" this matter of opinions about what aspects of a design remind individuals of other characters? You ask my opinion, I state it, and you go "NO YOU'RE WRONG". What will it take you to get over...

    24. JezMM

      JezMM

      ...this? "No you're right the character design never made me personally think of Marine, I was mistaken". You asked why Sticks' design made us think of Marine, we said why. What do you even want!?

      Then we got mobile phones and we could only store 10 numbers on them!

      And these motion controllers.

      We only had light guns!

      LOOK AT EM' *points to you* HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT A LIGHT GUN IS!

  15. So what's the deal with people screen grabbing peoples jokes on SSMB and posting them on twitter in a bid to suggest they were being serious?

    1. Hui

      Hui

      mostly for the "look at me! i'm so much better than than the people on SSMB"

    2. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Let me guess: SF1991?

    3. Hui

      Hui

      there's quite a few people who do that. i remember when they screen capped comments that disagreed with them on sonic generations being mediocre to show their followers how shitty our opinions were haha

      wonder if this was the post in question

    4. Haalyle

      Haalyle

      The Sonic Stadium.TXT is filled with them, really biased too. I almost was going to comment about taking it too far, but it's not worth my time.

    5. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      Just because Donnie did that one time Neps, doesn't mean he's going out of his way to do it. He's probably too busy writing articles to do so

    6. Stasis

      Yeah, why are you guys taking the time and effort to complain about this

    8. Hui

      Hui

      yeah sonic stadium.txt though has it out for everyone's favorite opinionated member and pretty much hates their guts. it's annoying but it's funny to watch this guy get bent out of shape. he tried to call me friend out for his bad sonics thread and i laughed

    9. Nepenthe

    11. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      I think 06 just demonstrates how completely wrong a Sonic game can go, with practically no redeemable qualities.

    12. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Granted, Black Knight had much more going for it in terms of presentation and style. But the gameplay was really no better than 06.

    17. FriendBot

      I don't know about you guys but I still like the Storybook series. But yeah Secret Rings' controls were terrible. But they're not bad games IMO.

    18. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Given the Adventure series' longevity as being considered the pinnacle... 06 being considered the ditch is probably going to last a looooong time.

    19. Indigo Rush

      The fact that the Adventure games /were/ the pinnacle for 3D Sonic for so long is actually rather depressing.

      Out of curiosity, who might that be? I'm unlikely to get them due to money issues atm. I've got to make sure I have enough for Metal Sonic next month (just in case he does arrive before October) so I won't be bidding very high.

      Aha, lol. They're already at over £6. I was kind of hoping there wouldn't be much interest so they wouldn't really get above £10, but that seems very unlikely. Ah well.

      No, this one: http://www.sonicchesscollection.com/ The magazine got cancelled before any of us got any of the issues. Only a select couple of stores around the country got anything either, so the figures are pretty rare.

      Shouldn't that be SEGA's job since it's their game?

    2. Lucid Dream

      Nintendo were responsible for distributing the game. 

      But yes, I agree that that is prepostrous management. Both on Sega Europe and Nintendo Europes part. 

    3. Operationgamer17

      Operationgamer17

      Some stores DID get it. Fast Racing NEO seemingly wasn't distributed in the U.K. either.

    6. Milo

      Milo

      What @Dejimon11 said, I'm pretty sure any lack of F&I copies in the UK would be Sega of Europe's fault, rather than Nintendo's. Mario & Sonic Olympic Games series notwithstanding, the Nintendo partnership ended with the first two Boom games. Fire & Ice was contracted after the fact, it's out of Nintendo's jurisdiction.

    7. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      Wow, the game that actually turns to be decent is also the game that's not even in store shelves. Sonic Boom is just cursed to be fucked over one way or another.

      First, RoL's development hell. Second, CN barely advertises the show yet it's still considered a success somehow. Now, F&I isn't in UK stores.

    8. Operationgamer17

      Operationgamer17

      They asked NOE to distribute fire and ice in a separate deal from the Nintendo partnership. As I stated above, Fast Racing NEO was distributed by NOE too, and it can't be found anywhere, so this is likely their fault. 

    9. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      What's funny is that when I was at Gamestop on the day it came out they didn't have it either

    10. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      When I picked up my copy from EB Games, they had a good amount of copies of it so yeah; what the heck NoE?

    11. Operationgamer17

      Operationgamer17

      I preordered at Wal-Mart and didn't get it untill yesterday. Donnie got the last one at his retailer, so I'm sure it got a wider distribution in the US. 

    12. Milo

      Milo

      @Soni.exe The Sonic Boom subseries was a total cock-up in terms of management. The television series and (apparently) merchandise wouldn't see the light of day in some countries for several months (with the UK in particular not getting the show for an entire year, even though it uses the US dub and didn't have a UK-specific dub). US airtime was a mediocre timeslot and for quite some time had barely any advertising on CN's part as it is. Comic book tie-in series only lasted a few episodes. And RoL and SC (which were the only Boom-specific elements released worldwide on time...go figure) speak for themselves.

    13. Operationgamer17

      Operationgamer17

      @Gabe, in case you forgot, Ian Flynn said the comics cancellation wasn't because of SEGA or sales. The way you worded that makes it seems SEGA mismanaged the comics. 

      Anyway, thinking about this whole thing, maybe both Fire and Ice and FRN are just experiencing late deliveries? 

    14. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      Why were the comics cancelled anyway? I thought it was due to sales? 

    15. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      just behind the scenes stuff at Archie. Don't understand why since they were selling well I believe they were selling more than the main series. 

    16. Operationgamer17

      Operationgamer17

      It might have been because of the Kickstarter disaster last year or so. 

    17. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      Nah, the Boom comic was selling just as well as the Mega Man comic (which was also cancelled later on). I think it was because the failure of Kickstarter project and they had to cancel some books to cover up the costs.

    18. Milo

      Milo

      @Operationgamer17 Yeah, adding the comic book to that list was a mistake on my part.

      That said, I wouldn't be surprised though if the reception to the games played a part on the comic getting cut short though; i.e. that is to say the cancellation wasn't directly caused by Sega's incompetence but it was a indirect casualty.

    19. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      Nah, I doubt it. If that's the case, the Sonic comic should've ended when 06 was out but nope.

    20. Milo

      Milo

      @Soni.exe Not exactly the same case. Sonic 2006 and Archie Sonic are separate "main" branches to both the games and the comics, while both the Sonic Boom games and comics are spinoffs unis tied under one brand. A spinoff branch is a lot more expendable than the core / headlining series.

      For what its worth, it seems the Boom comic was one of a group of casualties Archie settled on putting on the chopping block (I think the Megaman comic was also among those canned, correct me if I'm wrong) due to their own problems they were facing. If that's the case, I'm just saying that it's chances of not getting the shaft were arguably diminished quite a bit when it were (partially) tied to the Boom games of all things.

    21. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Mega Man wasn't canned, it was "put on hiatus".

      Probably a very long one at least.

      I kind of feel bad for him after reading that he has asperger's and that he feels so bad that he wants to kill himself :(

      Ugh...that made me feel really uneasy. He obviously has a fairly severe case of Asperger's, so it's really not our place to judge him. Especially since he wants to kill himself :( We should probably just drop it all together.

      Using Asperger's as an excuse for anything is right at the top of my shit list.
