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

    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...

      I would change my medicine officer.


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

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

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

  5. 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. 

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



  7. 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.

      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.

      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.

      @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.

  8. Do we actually ever get told how long Eggman has had Sonic in prison for in Sonic Forces?

    I want to say it's 6 months but can't find anything in game that says that?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Between the second and third cutscenes/between the first and second level, there's a text box that says something to the effect of "with Sonic defeated, Eggman took over the world in 6 months". At another point during one of the "talking heads" cutscenes, Sonic says he's got six months of payment to return.

    2. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Ah right.

      The text dialogue only says it was 'months' as does the Amy and Knuckles conversation.

      But yeah I remember it now.


    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      You're welcome. 

    4. Badnik Mechanic

      I'm doing a video examining Tails' representation in Forces... so having to do a lot of research, hence why I'm suddenly so interested in this game... sigh.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Oh boy, good luck with that. Tails role in Forces is just so incredibly dumb.

    6. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Yeah... It's... It's really interesting/infuriating at how badly they messed up Tails. He potentially could have been the best character in this game and they could have even used his efforts to fix Omega as a great parallel to the story and theme of Forces itself.

      When you look at this really critically, there are some amazingly simple changes they could have done which would have improved his character a hell of a lot.

      E.g. right at the start, he cowers in front of the eggrobos, even if he had just stood his ground and put his arms out as if he's trying to shield the people, it makes his next scene so much better.

      When he runs away after Sonic is defeated, it's actually the smartest move he makes in the whole game, and you can even excuse his 'I'm not smart enough' when you look at the game as a whole. 

      Even when he freaks out at Chaos, you can kinda justify it... But dear god... When Healing Hands Classic Sonic turns up... it's almost like an entirely new team took over the whole story!

      And it also doesn't help that in cut scenes we have stuff like this that does no favours for anyone...


    7. altum_dolorem


      @Mayor D Well...that screenshot does explain why Eggmans robots barely attack during gameplay. It's because they're blind, it's the only logical conclusion.

    8. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      It also explains why most of the stages are just straight lines.

  9. (tweet) So I just noticed something amazing about Tails' intro in Sonic Forces...


    1. Blacklightning


      oi give them some slack guy

      they obviously had no ai before so even this is an improvement




    2. Diogenes


      it's almost like they're a bunch of mindless machines marching in formation or something

  10. Sorry to interrupt your January 3rd...


    But taking this time to tell you that a new bug in Fallout 76 has managed to disable all nuclear weapons.


    Yes the primary selling point and endgame no longer works.

    Sonic is the dude, with the attitude.

      Little T

      I never thought I'd actually get to see footage of this show!

    3. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      @Little T

      It's not. Not really.

      The footage is from a TV Show doc... but... this seems to have been shot on the stage floor, and Sonic is blatantly doing dance moves from it. I put the music over the top and.... It just goes too well for it not to be moves from the show.

    SSMB can anyone explain this picture?


    1. blueblur98


      sonic is secretly an elf

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Sonic just wants a hug while the Santas are waving. Doesn't explain the random maid though.

  13. Mario & Sonic first collaborated in 2003 according to this image.



    1. Badnik Mechanic

      Forgot to mention, this is from a Japanese TV show which was promoting Sonic Adventure on the GameCube.

    What the actual! How did Sega Republic mess this up this badly! SSMB you need to see this!


    1. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      It gets better!

      4: Tails has no nose!

      5: Part of the image just above Tails head has been deleted using the rectangle tool.

    2. Patticus


      How did they mess up this badly? Why, it's simple! It's called "not giving a shit about their job."

  15. (Tweet) If you missed it earlier. In 2003 Sega performed an amazing Sonic stage play...



  16. So I'm just finishing my new Sonic Documentary and found out about something... amazing...


    In 2003, Sega of Japan held a party event for fans, in which they performed a Sonic stage play with actors in Sonic Mascot costumes. 

    The play was called "Sonic & The Curse of the Vinta VS Sonic Velocity Machine"

      I know, dodgy Japanese translations will do that. But the play feature Eggman invading the stage via an escalator.


      Which in itself is amazing.

  17. (tweet) I think Sega is growing desperate to shift copies of Sonic Forces for their numbers now...

  18. Trailer for my new Sonic Documentary


  19. @34 onwards... 

    A visual representation of what it's like to go into a topic to continue an argument after a mod has close it.



  20. Someone needs to mod all the Sonic games so that the only music they play is YMCA...


    ...And it never stops.

    1. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      Actually... Just make it the Super Sonic transformation music.

  21. (Tweet) So I got some utterly incredible video today... And I want this amazing Sonic 2 Sign!


  22. (Tweet)

    This is me. Hello me.



  23. (tweet) Just found something interesting in an old Sega documentary

      So Eggy at one point actually looked like his game self instead of the conehead abomination...what a timeline that'd be to live in

  24. (tweet) I posted quite a long thing about why people who are convinced the movie design is a hoax marketing ploy are likely wrong...



    1. Unidus


      It's weird, because because in a way it would be a brilliant marketing idea! This has got people talking everywhere. Then again, the broadness of talks of how ugly the model is will surely not last more than a week or so. Then the "general public" will move on and forget all about it... So, it's not good marketing as well. 

    2. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      I don't think anyone actually genuinely believes it's a hoax like it makes sense or anything, they're just substituting that in as a way of trying to keep hope alive that it's better than it is. Same reason I compared it to those "no really you guys Team Sonic Racing lets you race in cars AND on-foot" comments.
