    The Tenth Doctor reacted to Tracker_TD in New Sonic Encyclopedia appears on Amazon   
    The Cook and Becker artbook... wasn't that great. I love Classic Sonic plenty, but they really shafted the Modern Sonic half of the book; most of it's just CG renders. There were a few nice surprises, such as a clean version of the Nintendo Dream Sonic Battle art and some rare Saturn-era stuff, but it's also got some extremely weird mistakes, like... American Sonic 2 art being pasted over the Japanese box's background? Seriously weird. 
    I think if another artbook were to happen I'd want it to focus more on the Modern titles; I have enough Classic Sonic art to last me a lifetime now and while I do want some specific stuff digging up (such as Harmony pieces that aren't yet scanned properly afaik), I think the bulk of the Classic concept art is sorted. Give me those early SA1 renders that they showed at the JP concerts!

    Not really an update per se, but baffling all the same-
     
    I uh... unless something happened and no one said anything literally anywhere, Penders hasn't released ANYTHING of his graphic novel (outside of some crappy tie-in products). Like... wouldn't the one prerequisite to teach a class about something? To have successfully DONE the thing you're teaching? This is like taking a cooking class from someone who has never successfully cooked anything complicated, or a publishing class from someone who never actually got anything published. 
    I swear the guy is looking for reasons to not get things done at this point.

    So... Remember this?


    We had a big topic on this trying to find it and it was one wild ride... well...

    Here he is today!
    And yes it's genuine!
     
     
    We don't yet know who is responsible for both the repair and restoration or even who paid for it but... My God I didn't think this day would come!

    If you have absolutely no idea as to what this is or the story behind it. I've been documenting it a lot on YouTube so check out this playlist for the full story on this boy.

    Eh, so what else is new? Penders has been hyping that trial ever since it ended and has done everything in his power to try and play it off as some kind of major, game changing event within the wider comics industry, even going so far as to refer to it as 'groundbreaking' or even 'legendary'. The fact that absolutely nothing about it has been spoken off in comic news publications since its end is kind of telling in of itself. Hell, he constantly compares the events of his trial to a MYRIAD of incidents and trials, past and present, in an effort to make his slap fight seem more important and relevant than it really is. This is a man who sincerely compares his trial to the Maria Altmann case. You know, the Jewish lady who had to flee for dear life from the Nazi's and then sued the Austrian government to regain a family heirloom that had been plundered? TOTALLY the same as a slap fight over Knuckles in cosplay. 
    It really doesn't matter how much he tries to play himself off as a kind of legal strategist who defied the odds against a corporation- the bottom line is that Archie did not in fact have the contracts. Being able to triumph in the face of such sheer incompetence is absolutely not the same thing as re-enacting David and Goliath. 
    Yeah, there's no doubt that if this ever WAS going to be released, it'd get real ugly real quickly. Penders has never, ever cared for writing for teenagers or shown even a vague understanding of how to write one, and certainly does not really think they're actually capable of being the heroes of their own stories. Look at what he did to Sally and Knuckles. Look at the emphasis he placed on Geoffrey St. John.  Hell, look at the entirety of 25YL- a storyline literally meant to be all about The Next Generation, and he still decided the most important thing was the now grown Knuckles rather than the new batch of potential teen heroes. I can guarantee you there'd be nothing flattering to be found in this. 
    Again though, we're never going to know because honestly, at this stage its never going to happen. 
    Well yeah, duh? What else would he do? Actually make substantive progress on the comic he's been promising for literally almost ten years now? Don't you know ANYTHING about being a professional? 
    ...but yeah, he's gonna cling to that one til the day he dies regardless of how little it really factors into anything. He's literally the only Archie creator involved with that entire mess who goes on about it or talks about it at any length or even seems to care. Everyone else has pretty much moved on.

    The Tenth Doctor reacted to Ryannumber1gamer in [EVENT] The Sonic Musical Spectacular 5 - Celebrating Sonic's 29th, Motobug's 5th, and SSMB's 20th anniversaries! Event ended! Check finale post for details on next year, and awards!   
    Alright, with a few days having now passed, I think it's time to bring this event to a close! 
    First things first, here's some random stats about the event!
    34 people submitted requests Over 25 people attended the stream live The runtime of the event came out to over ten hours Persona had the most songs in SEGA General Adding games with multiple lists together - Sonic CD had the most requests this year - filling out both the US and JP soundtrack lists. Team Sonic Racing, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania, and Sonic Unleashed were all tied as second popular (all of them filling up their five slot lists). They're tied for first, if we don't count CD having two lists. Trumping all of them was SEGA General with a grand total of 14 songs, well over a standard album.  With that, the fifth Sonic Musical Spectacular has come to a close, this year's event in particular was a very special occasion for us, as it marks five full years that the Motobug crew have been operating and running the channel ever since it was started by a member named Rucdose, and not only that - it marked a huge occasion for The Sonic Stadium in general, it's 20th anniversary! Since that faithful day, Motobug has come extremely far, branching out into many different events and many different stream. I didn't think that five years ago, we'd still be going strong to this day, but here we are. Between both of these huge occasions, we felt we had to make this year's event the best out of all of the previous ones, and in my opinion, I think we achieved that.
    I've said this many times before, but Motobug is, and never has been a one-man operation, and Sonic Musical Spectacular in particularly shows how much teamwork, passion, and effort goes into these events. This year's event in particular had been in planning since January, if not even before then (IIRC - the first discussions of it began in November, in fact). The event this year in particular went through many different versions as we had come up with a ton of different ideas for things to add to it. It was the different versions and discussions that eventually led up to this year's format of having our own personalised videos that doubled as both the event, and the celebration video, which ultimately seemed to work out better for everyone, so that was great to see.
    I always say every year that this event is a really special event to me, since it's a time when a lot of people come together to contribute different things to help make the event a reality. From all of the SSMB members who came together to request their favourite songs, and came along to the stream to provide a great time, to the Motobug staff behind the scenes who worked hard to get the event off the ground. I might be the event organiser, but I cannot send enough praise and thanks to the rest of the Motobug crew who made this event a reality, both past and present. From @Polkadi~☆'s incredible video-making this year, to @Spin Attaxx and @altum_dolorem's incredible artwork from the logo to various art assets like the banners in the OP.
    I want to give my deepest thanks to everyone who took part in the event, both those who participated, those who came along to the stream, and of course - all of the Motobug crew who made this event a reality. I personally think this year not only had the best format by far, but had one of the best selections of songs from every game represented. 
    As for next year, the Motobug crew have been taking in deep consideration of the feedback that we've gotten from those who attended the event. I don't have a whole ton of details to discuss until we conduct proper planning of next year's event, but for now, I can share this much - firstly - next year we will be removing the second remix slot. 
    However - we will be replacing this with a "wild-card" slot. This slot will be a free slot that you can use to choose either a regular song, or a second remix if you so choose. So with that, next year's plan will be four regular song slots, one remix slot, and your wild card slot that you can use for either a regular song, or a remix. You still have six song slots like this year overall, but you have more freedom with one of them.
    Secondly - we'll be introducing a limit on SEGA General's requests, specifically - how many songs one franchise can have. While the Motobug staff are happy with the popular turnout that SEGA General had overall, there seems to be a shared sentiment that Persona had way too many songs compared to other franchises, so we'll be introducing a limit (to be decided) so we can have a bit more diversity within the SEGA General category.
    Thirdly, and lastly - the format - this year's format in particular seems to have been very popular, not only splitting the stream over two days, as we did with SMS4, but having the customised backgrounds, layout, and videos for watching the event. @Polkadi~☆ has also mentioned how making this year's format was significantly more easier than the previous years' celebration videos, so we will most likely be keeping the brand new format on as we progress into next year's event, since it's not only easier on Polk, but also seems to be more popular amongst the members here.
    So with that said, I don't have much else to say, other than once again - a gigantic thank you to the Motobug staff who helped in the creation of the event, and of course - thank you to everyone who took part in the event this year, and continues to support these events, as it's the fun that everyone gets from Sonic Musical Spectacular that makes it all worth it in the end.
    On another note, @Strickerx5 is also currently working on getting the badges distributed out soon, and I'm sure he'll let everyone know when they're being sent out. We believe we've noted down everyone who's owed a badge, so if you don't receive a badge after Strick has confirmed he's sent them to everyone, be sure to give us a shout, and we'll hopefully get it sorted out.
    So with all of that said...

    Until next year, keep blasting through with Sonic Speed, SSMB!

    Well I had a good time, relaxing and chilling with you guys and some awesome tunes. Have to say,liked the edited format. Lessens the videos in the playlist so its smooth sailing throughout. Few hicups with facts here and there but easily remedied ones. Have to agree with what others have said, a set amount of Sega general ones to keep it neat would be my main take away. I like the Sega general stuff, we just need people to vote more variety into it. I know I'll do one next time.
    Also, keep the two night format. Means we aren't around for way too long and can still enjoy ourselves before we get too tired.

    That's a wrap on the first night of the event! If you couldn't make it for the live event, you can watch both the Classic and Dreamcast eras of it on YouTube! Thanks to our new format, we had all of the music in one video, brilliantly made by @Polkadi~☆!
    Join us tomorrow at 8pm BST/3pm EST/12pm PDT for all of the Modern era, plus Smash and SEGA General!

    Penders better watch himself. A certain person compared Sonic to real life events recently and it didn't end well for him. Of course, both of these people are egotistical crazies who do anything for attention so pea's in a pod.

    This is ridiculous. Well, it already was, but this was the last straw for me reading through all this. Please stop ignoring what people are saying and pretending to not have read any of it.
    In fact this topic is very stupid and I'm locking it. Bye.

    The Tenth Doctor reacted to Dr. Mechano in The Avatar and Signature Topic   
    After seeing the rather interesting video about Brazilian Eggman, a bizarre feature on an official Sega game show called Play Game, I had to rep the guy here.
    Since my avatar/signature no longer follows the Eggette theme, I also updated my signature with Eggman punching down a wall in Lost World, because it's badass.

    The Tenth Doctor reacted to Dreadknux in TSSZ is gone?   
    Yeah, this is quite a surprising turn of events. For what it's worth, I was supporting of TSSZ's coverage/amplification of news surrounding the BLM protests before the 'Sonic Adventure 2/Sonic Forces comparison' tweet happened. I can certainly see the argument that, as long as you're not editorialising anything, letting your audience (who may only know about Sonic depending on what accounts they follow) know about a huge cultural event taking place is important. Even if he did go a bit ham on the retweets, but that's neither here or there.
    The comparison tweet was a misstep though, and should have resulted in a walkback from TSSZ. Sadly, that didn't happen - maybe it was heat of the moment (always a good reason to take a break from social media every now and then), or lockdown anxiety or something, but the response to community reaction to that particular tweet could have been handled better.
    It certainly doesn't necessitate a shutdown of the site. For better or worse, TSSZ has been an important part of the online Sonic community and we're all the poorer for it not existing (at the very least, in archive form). I hope Tristan takes a few days to cool off and figure out a new way forward.

    Out of all the characters, I can see Metal Sonic working the most for the sequel. They'd replace Silver Sonic with Metal since he's better known and Robotnik would use the quill from Sonic he still he still has to power him. Big if though, since Amy and Knuckles need a bit more explanation.
