      Oh Google. You never cease to make me say WTF M8

  2. Had quite a horrible experience this afternoon... so... yeah bit fragile at the moment.

    1. Failinhearts


      If you're not in the best of spirits, try to distract yourself. Maybe with something funny, or a thing you enjoy. It can do wonders sometimes.

      Get better soon.

    2. Kiah


      Sorry you had to go through that. You are already going through enough as it is so try to take it easy and take care of yourself. Whatever happened I hope you will get through it okay.

      I'll be alright. Thanks for checking in.

      Just feel exhausted at the moment, so probably get an early night.

  3. I have updated the Sonic Statue in the Mountains topic with the location and video of the statue.

    Happy hunting!

    So remember that Sonic statue in the mountains?

    Hey SSMB...

    Why does the robot Sonic baby from Sonic Underground have an almighty penis?




    1. Polkadi~☆


      I'm calling the police.

      What the almighty fuck

      ...are we sure this isn't an edit

      i want to believe this was an edit

    4. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      It's not an edit.

  6. I'm not sure if I can make a topic about it or if a topic already exists where it would fit in...


    But here is my video editorial about Tails in Sonic Forces if you've not seen it.

    Some people like it so figured some of you would.



    1. TheOcelot


      You could make a topic in the Showcase section.

    2. Indigo Rush

    3. Kiah


      I don’t see why you couldn’t make a topic. And even though it’s something you created it’s definitely made to encourage conversation so it could actually go in Green Hill Zone assuming that there isn’t an existing topic about Tails’ characterization in Forces. 

      That said, I just finished watching the video and it was a huge eye opener for me and has softened my criticism of Tails in Forces. On the other hand it has increased my hatred of Forces seeing even more blown potential on top of the other glaring issues with the points brought out. 

      I would definitely encourage you to make a topic in hopes that more look at the video. Yes it’s long but it’s definitely worth it. Well done 🙂

      @Kiah Oh cool! I'll probably do that later on! And thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!

  7. So... I just uploaded an hour long character analysis of Tails in Sonic Forces.

    Hope you find some enjoyment from it.

      Will watch later when I have the time.

    2. Kiah


      Watched a few minutes of it and you definitely grabbed my attention and is a nice listen. Have to go back to work soon so I’ll watch the rest when I get a chance. *marks to watch later*

      And nice accent 😉

    3. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic


      Me Yorkshire heritage thanks you.

      Especially since I had flu recording the audio lol. 

    4. Patron


      Brilliant stuff! If you feel like it your video might get more exposure and kickstart an interesting discussion if you post it in the forums. 👍

    5. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic


      Whilst I'd like to, since I'd like to discuss the video more with people. It's probably better if someone else makes the topic.

      Also not sure if a pre-existing topic would be better for it.

  8. So this is why Vector likes the computer room.


    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      You're obsessing over Vector way too much. 


      That's my job. 

  9. (Tweet)

    So I have a theory about Vector...



    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Why would Sonic choose him over the other Chaotix to participate in the Olympics and Team Race anyway????

    2. blueblur98


      because he is s t r o n k

  10. (Tweet)

    So I got a great gift from one of the designers of the Sonic Crash Course game today!


  11. (Video Link)

    Tails in Sonic Forces.


  12. So as disappointing as Sonic Lost World was...

    It's probably the best game that Tails has been in. He's quite well written in this game.

    1. JosepHenry


      thats the boldest opinion I ever heard............. nah i disgree

    2. Jango
    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Nope, absolute disagree.

    4. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      Literally the opposite of that is true

    5. Indigo Rush
    6. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Bold indeed. Lost World was the point where I’d realised what an obnoxious little fucker he’d become.

    7. JosepHenry


      God if people can consider that unbarable brat "the best one" then Tails was always horrible disgrace

    8. dbzfan7


      My son paid for that in Forces. He's had enough abuse lately.

    9. Diogenes


      it's true. the game's writing/story has its problems, but it at least allows tails to have a decent range of emotions, actual flaws, interactions more complex than "yay sonic!" or "oh no it's eggman!" and like, actually be an interesting character

      but that means he's not a perfect innocent little cinnamon roll so it's the worst thing ever

    10. JosepHenry


      No is because his emotions are random and make no sense. He hates Sonic now cuz he is jealous of him working with Eggman... No! That makes no sense at all! Creating conflict out of nowhere is not good characterization. I would love if he had more emotions and flaws besides being a "perfect cinnamon roll" but Lost World is a TERRIBLE example of how to make it. That doesn't work, is dumb.

      Is not better than just bland pure Tails, is just as bad.

      Tails is a bad character.

    11. Milo


      if his character got one comprehensive re-write in the script so that he wasn't a punk at the most unneeded times, then I would probably agree

    12. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Well this certainly set the cat amongst the pigeons didn't it.

      This is one of the few Sonic games where for a large part of it, Tails is seen with Sonic but isn't trying to overshadow him by being just as capable as he is.

      He uses his abilities as both a mechanic and scientist to be active and provide solutions to the problems they encounter.

      He does stuff in this game that Sonic can't do, but nothing that is to the degree of 'Why didn't you just save the day'.

      He's always active in the story, it's not like how in unleashed you yourself have to go back to visit him where he gives you some more information. 

      In this game he's become the support rule character really well because he's always there and always doing things. But even he's alone he's able to solve problems and find a solution.

  13. Petition to make you all donate to my Ko-Fi account.

  14. (Tweet) 

    Something really strange has just happened to Tails...


  15. (TWEET) Is it too late to join this Miles and Gwen thing?



  16. (TWEET) So I got a new pin badge... and noticed something cool about it.


    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Oh, I've seen that and the new Eggman pin badge in FP! I'm tempted to get one myself. 

  17. Ghostbusters 2020 teaser Trailer is live

  18. (TWEET) So there is a rather awesome Sonic cameo in a documentary on Netflix right now.



  19. (Tweet)

    The 6 month war in Sonic Forces would have been over much quicker had they known about Infinites secret weakness...

    Don't worry. The Sonic Movie will be great!


    1. Kiah


      The Sonic movie will be great?! You must be hallucinating, poor thing. You might want to change your flu medicine if it’s doing that to you  

      Real talk that image looks more like Sonic than that hideous thing we have seen via the teasers...

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      I would change my medicine officer.


      But the pink elephants have my lunchbox and the banana peel.

  21. So my Analysis of Tails in Sonic Forces... It's nearly 20 pages long...

    Oh dear... this video will be nearly an hour long!

  22. I... Can't believe I'm saying this...


    But Sonic Forces in terms of structure... makes a lot of sense if you view the game as an allegory for overcoming depression.

    1. ThePrinceOfSaiyans


      It still sucks tho.

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Yes it does. Yes.

    3. Kuzu


      Well, watching it did make me depressed. 

  23. Sonic Forces me to make a macro in Microsoft Word...



  24. So my character study of Tails in Sonic Forces looks like it'll be over 30min long...


    And most of the script consists of "This nearly works, and then they ruin it by..."


    Which I feel could also be a blurb for the game itself.

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Present since the very beginning.Image result for classic sonic forces


    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Yeah... Healing Hands Classic Sonic is the point of no return moment...

      Sadly though... even with him in the game, they could have still done something amazing with Tails... But just didn't.

    3. Dr. Detective Mike

      Dr. Detective Mike

      That's something I say a lot when it comes to Lost World.

    4. Kuzu


      You may as well just do a retrospective of the whole game. 

    5. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      @Kuzu the Boloedge

      Only if you buy me some Ko-Fi's...


      But ironically. I am looking at other parts of the game and... well... like I said. It feels like there was a really good idea that they had... then they just didn't.
