    Pengi reacted to OBD96 in How is IDW an improvement over Forces?   
    Yeah, that's pretty much it.
    Nah, you're lying to yourself; you think Forces is a perfect, competently written game, which is why you're praising Tails' portrayal in that game. That's the impression I'm getting anyway.

    Pengi got a reaction from LunchPolice in Sonic Concept Art   
    This was also revealed in the recently released "The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers: Volume 3", along with other interesting pieces of information. (You'll like this.) Extracts from the interview with Naoto Ohshima:

    Manabu Kusunoki is also interviewed in the book:
     
    So his credit in Chaotix was purely for being the original designer of Mighty.

    Pengi reacted to Plumbers_Helper in The Lost Intro to Sonic SatAM, and my attempts to find it   
    I'm sorry, but other then this brief 12 seconds of footage and this very brief one second of footage, the full animated intro has never been released. Some of the animation cells for it have been leaked online. We don't know what the orginal music for the intro was, it can very faintly be heard in the 12 second video I linked, but I can't make it out. It sounds like it could be one of the unused instrumental themes for the show.

    You probably know all this already considering the effort you've put into this, but I thought I'd share for anyone else unfamiliar with it. It's possible the original intro is just sitting in a storage unit somewhere, just waiting to be preserved.
    Besides the music, this video is all we have of the original intro as far as I know.
    Good luck on your search! I'd love to see the full thing someday.

    To be totally fair, the Boom comic didn’t really *need* a proper finale.
    It wasn’t around long enough to make an impression and the Boom universe was still continuing to exist in the TV series, so there was nothing that needed wrapping up.

    Some of these weren't "actual" names for the character, they were supposed to be disparaging nicknames Sonic would use.

    I wouldn’t call that an “arc” as much as I’d call it a “status quo”.

    None whatsoever.
    The Hedgehog Engine was built in-house, and wholly owned by SEGA. The HE2 a newer version of the same engine, more suited to current hardware.

    Pengi reacted to Diogenes in Do the mandates for the comics even exist?   
    Sega very clearly doesn't let the comics writers go off and do basically whatever they want, the way things were for a long time with Archie Sonic. That's only reasonable; every company wants to protect their intellectual property, and after seeing how off-track Archie Sonic had become, as well as the series as a whole dealing with an ongoing identity crisis, it makes sense that they'd have stricter oversight in place than they used to.
    But nobody who isn't directly involved in the comics actually knows what rules are in place, besides the few that the people involved have let slip. That makes it easy to blame them for anything in the comic they don't like; it's always big bad Sega ruining the writer's pure and faultless vision, and nobody can prove otherwise.

    Wisps more likely come from will-o'-wisps. They don't have anything in common with wasps aside from being small and able to fly.

    The recent Bluray transfer is taken from the original masters. It's still standard definition but it's better than the old copies.

    Pengi reacted to Emerald Chaos in Sonic X Netflix UK   
    It's unlikely to be both English and Japanese because of all the edits made to the English version. They would need separate videos for both versions or it would result in inconsistencies in one or the other.
    I don't know if Netflix has ever bothered doing that but I imagine it's unlikely they would. It's almost certainly just going to be the English version

    I highly doubt the latter. Don’t think other 4kids shows on Netflix have that luxury(?)

    It would be grossly irresponsible. “Environmentalism can be a bad thing” is a poor message to send children in a world on the verge of environmental collapse. There’s no “both sides”.

    I don't think having a villainous environmentalist would be a good look, given that we're on the verge of climate change disaster while world leaders put corporate interests before the future of human and animal life.

    Pengi reacted to Nintenboi in Worst period for Sonic?   
    Probably 2004 to 2008.
    Almost everything about the franchise was mediocre.
    The comics, the merchandise and especially the games.
    Things have definitely picked up lately but not by a lot.

    Sega owns all the IDW Sonic comic characters. 
    The previous comic's character rights problems came from '90s era Archie messing up by either not getting the writers/artists to sign work for hire contracts, or losing their records of the work for hire contracts. After that fiasco, there's no way anyone involved would allow that to happen again.

    Pengi reacted to Dr. Mechano in What is it about Sonic that makes so many wish to disconnect him from non-Eggman humans?   
    Mmm, what about Witchcart?

    Or the humanoid angel statue in Sonic CD?

    Or the humans in the hieroglyphs in Sonic Blast?

     
    Looks like non-Eggman humans have always been around to me. We don't see them much in the classic games because they were action games - ergo, we don't see many townspeople or NPCs in general. But the idea that Eggman is the only human in Sonic's world is flat-out contradicted by in-game evidence to the contrary.

    ...and making them animals would help somehow? That's more down to how they're written than anything. It's not like making them anthros in Forces did much - they were arguably even more generic there. At least Unleashed's humans had character.
