    Soniman reacted to Strong Bad in Etika Appreciation Thread   
    I've been super mega gone from the Sonic scene for so long, but Etika is someone I kept up with through the years. From humble beginnings as a SegaSonic Radio DJ to being a famous YouTuber, his passion as an entertainer was obvious from day 1. He wanted to bring smiles to the faces of others, and he did that better than anyone I have ever known.
    He and I would talk on MSN as early as 2006, and bonded over the fact that we had the same birthdate (may 12th!). Later in 2015 we finally got to meet up. He was always so excited about any progression or good parts of my life, encouraging me and helping me. I met up with him at various events and again in 2017 as I hung at his apartment in NYC. He just... he wouldn't let me pay for my own food.... or anything like that. I was his guest of honor, I suppose, that's just how kind he truly was. Infinite kindness. Infinite patience. Infinite smiles. I knew he was hurting, and I reached out to him, but I hadn't got a reply since October... I'm so sorry it came to this, Desmond, and I'm sorry I couldn't help you. I'm in tears over your passing and I'm sorry you were suffering this much. I will never forget you no matter how much time passes.
    I don't much like putting my face on the internet these days, but I'll make an exception.

    Here's to you, Desmond. I love you and miss you so much. Everything hurts, but I can only imagine this is a fraction of the pain you must have felt. I would do anything to hear some Cold Hard Facts from you just one more time. 💔

    Man I just want Crash. I feel like he's the only one left that SHOULD be there. I imagine it would be easier to get him in than Banjo as well

    Soniman reacted to Wraith in Next Main Game is 30th Anniversary Title, Drop Dash News   
    If they brought back the classic style, but with new locations, then I'd be up for that. So far they haven't shown an interest in doing much of that, though. The classic shouts in the new games feel so arbirtary when the games aren't interested in their depth, themes etc. It should be the reverse where they try to embody these ideas in new ways that still fit the series. 
    Like, levels like Final Egg, Grand Metropolis and Planet Wisp FEEL like they carry the spirit of the series without reading like a rehash. That's all I want.

    Soniman reacted to Indigo Rush in Next Main Game is 30th Anniversary Title, Drop Dash News   
    Ooh, was afraid of this sort of thing happening.
    Right, so I think it's worth pointing out that Iizuka didn't directly answer whether or not there would actually be an anniversary title that year. While it's in the realm of possibility given the series' precedent, also keep in mind that we never got a proper 25th anniversary title, either. 2016 was a year of the Rio Olympics and Fire and Ice, so it's not necessarily a given that it'll be a major game. He could be planning another party where they reveal a yet future title, like they did with Mania and Forces. We don't know. 
    As for the drop dash, I'm not sure why that would replace the Wisps? They're a different sort of variable in the series; it's like saying Mario's ground pound should replace the fire flower or some other power up, that isn't really how it works. I'm actually considering writing up an article regarding the Wisps sometime, because I think their hate is largely founded on unstable presuppositions on what they actually are or what fans think they're supposed to be, but I digress.
    To be quite frank, I'm sort of hoping there isn't an "anniversary game", I guess mainly because I'd like to see something in the Mania category a little sooner than that? It'd also benefit if the next "3D" Sonic game had more time in the oven, so a 2022 release for that would be a good move. Just my thoughts on the matter.

    I guess it's refreshing having fans hate on a new Gen early instead of doing so in retrospect when the succeeding Gen is revealed like they always do. 
    For real thought. I'm all for criticism of GF's rightfully stupid choices. I'm not for the smug dipshits who come after people who don't care about this stuff with accusations of being sheep who just swallows what GF feeds them. That is peak Sonic Fandom shit that I don't wanna see crop up elsewhere

    Delaying a game is a rational option for just a video game series. But pokemon is a franchise. They have toys to sell, events to plan, the corresponding anime series to release along side the games. All these things need to come out at around the same time as to have the most effective marketing strike possible, which is why Delaying it is probably impossible for them at this juncture. To much money to lose I assume

    So, basically, Pokémon Home will build a wall to keep unwanted Pokémon out of the Galar region...man, you can see how far Gumshoos' influence can reach in the Pokémon world

    Soniman reacted to Diogenes in Sonic Headcanons   
    Personally I don't consider Tails' Super form to be canon, but setting that aside...let's say it's a reflection of his role as Sonic's sidekick and his desire to be more like him. He puts himself into Sonic's role, mimicking Super Sonic's speed and invincibility and manifesting sidekicks of his own (which, not coincidentally, have the ability to fly and are the type of character that he already helps out).
    Considering that, a post-SA Tails would likely have a different Super form under this headcanon.

    Sonic's got gloves in the teaser image. Are they really going to take away his gross little RAT HANDS? How dare they? In all seriousness though, it's good that they're taking their time with it and that revising the design doesn't (necessarily) mean horrible crunch periods for the VFX artists. 
    Also this is quite the movie for Valentine's Day. I wonder if cute couples will get in free.

    Soniman reacted to Legendary Emerald in SatAm "Sea3on" Project   
    Okay, so here's my thoughts on this topic. I wrote this out at the same time I created this thread, but didn't want to editorialize too much in the main post. 
    This group has done nothing to inspire confidence. There's no staff or contributors listed outside of “the original composer of SatAM” whom the project doesn't even name (there were three composers for that show, by the way,) and I had to fuss around the FUS homepage to find even one username associated with it: “Chief,” who is also involved with the season 3 fan comic that FUS produces. The comic looks fine; leagues above the Zelda CDI quality animation in Sea3on's trailer. But does anyone involved in this really have the pedigree to produce an animated show? Hard to tell when we don't know who is working on it at all.
    What about the money? Does this crew have any realistic idea how much it would cost to produce a show like this? There is no stated funding goal or any description of how animators and voice actors would be hired; zero transparency at every level of production. And because this is Patreon and not Kickstarter, this crew gets to keep all donations regardless of ever putting out a product or not, making this a very dubious investment for anyone interested in the idea.
    What about legal issues? SEGA historically plays nice with fan projects, but I can't imagine they approve of a fan project being funded in this way. Sea3on can say it's non-profit, but they are asking for donation to complete a project that will, let's just say it, never make it off the ground. They are taking people's money using the Sonic the Hedgehog IP, even if you believe their intentions to be pure. I'm no fan of corporations and IP law, but SEGA is firmly within their rights to shut this down immediately.
    I've seen this kind of project pop up and fail before. A Knothole Resident tried something very similar a few years back that never got past its proof-of-concept trailer. Countless unfinished fan-comics and fanfics about the concept of Season 3 exist, to the point where even I tried making one when I was 13. But unless I'm remembering incorrectly, none of those projects asked for your money, and you at least knew some of the people involved in it. This, though? I don't want to call it a scam, but only because I don't want to attribute malice to what is more than likely ignorance.

    Yeah I actually straight up hated the generic nothing items they used in transformed
     it's even worse because that game uses other Sega franchises and so there's even larger a pool of things you could pull from to come up with unique items
