      i really don't like any of the dlc fighters, honestly. guest fighters should've just been limited to sonic, snake, ryu, pacman, and megaman.

      I honestly would have preferred Sora over this

      I don't even have Ultimate and I'm still sorta bummed

  2. Storming the embassy was entirely justified considering how hard America has fucked Iraq for decades. Fuck the people like him trying to dismiss this as just being some Iran-orchestrated operation. None of this shit warrants assassinating one of the highest-ranking figures in another country.
  3. CSS was saying that "people" wanted the comic to be it's own thing, as if that in and of itself justifies all of the issues I and others have with the comic.
  4. I did. This just sucks. I explained why. Being "original" doesn't automatically mean it's good. Sonic fans really just have no standards for anything, huh.
  5. They exist but are exaggerated by the fandom. "Sonic can't bawl" (I.e. write sonic how he's supposed to be written) has somehow morphed into "Sega characters can't have emotion," which is bullshit because he emotes plenty (hey, there's emotions other than Sad, remember how pissed he got in Babylon Rising?) and has literally even teared up. Can't use dead characters because they're fucking dead. Can't have multiple Metal Sonics because Metal Sonic is a character, just like you can't have multiple Omegas running around. Etc. Etc. None of the mandates are really a big deal. They aren't uniquely restrictive. Literally any time a franchise is licensed you have to deal with guidelines like this. They've just become a convenient boogeyman to blame the flaws of the comics on. If anything they're still extremely generous since they're letting Ian continue to write dour SatAM-esque stories with dark Eggman and organized resistance teams. Imagine there was a licensed Mario comic and people got mad because the comic didn't make Mario a nihilistic guerrilla leader fighting an army of red Bowsers to save his OC parents.
  6. Minecraft Steve ain't going away!

      Would the more fashionable Fortnite Steve be able to overpower him?

    2. Heckboy

      Heckboy

      No. He is too powerful.

      there will always be more smash bros, and thus, more minecraft steve

      that's right

      Spoiler

      especially once they add him as the final dlc fighter

      NO.

  7. I just think it was a missed opportunity to see Tails get trolled.
  8. It's a shame Tails never got to fight Naugus.
  9. Honestly my ideal Sonic comic would just be a continuation of the French one

  10. Yeah, that's true. I usually enjoyed them but each finale did tend to just boil down to a giant slugfest. I guess I just preferred the variety that came with SU. I don't know if another issue would necessarily make it any better. I think Ian is just comfortable with his formula by now. I haven't read the Whisper and Tangle mini, does that have the same problem of having a flat ending?
  11. Eh. It gets old when it happens like every other issue. Ian's done this a lot. Another example that sticks out to me, because it was just as forced and out of place, was the GIANT ENEMY CRAB reference in Mega Drive. It's cheap, and that's what bothers me. It's not always bad, mind you. A fun little nod here and there is fine. But it should be natural and used sparingly. The frequency with which Ian uses references like these suggests to me that it's more of a crutch than anything. Also, going back to my gripes with the length of this arc, I genuinely believe Ian's at his best when he's being constrained to a few issues. Otherwise he tends to drag things out. Something like Enerjak Reborn (which was what, 4 or 5 issues?) accomplished more and was far more memorable than this. Once the "house-cleaning" part of Ian's early Archie run was done, though, and he started moving on to bigger, more "epic" sagas (starting with Iron Dominion) is where he started to go somewhat downhill with the main comic. Sonic Universe, on the other hand, was pretty consistently great, which I think can be attributed to the fact that he was forced to stick to four issues for each arc.
  12. Katana Zero is very good and you should all play it!

    1. Wraith

      Played it when it came out. Thought the gameplay was excellent when I got the hang of it but 

      Spoiler

      The lack of a real ending fucking stung. 

       

  13. My opinion hasn't changed. Zombie thing is dragging on way too long and isn't interesting. It's overly melodramatic to compensate for how boring and repetitive it is. What few decent emotional moments this arc does have are undermined by the fact that it keeps getting repeated in like, every issue. None of it has any real impact. The writing in general feels subpar for Ian, filled with awkward syntax and really, really hamfisted references. Yeah, a cute nod to the fans here and there is nice. This shit ain't. Like, I know I keep harping on this point in particular, but really, it's the perfect encapsulation of why this comic doesn't work for me. Just cheap references and shock value to disguise how shallow and boring it is. Makes for good "I KNOW WHAT THAT IS" reddit posts and tweets though. Going forward they need to just not do "Seasons" anymore. I know that's probably out of Ian's hands, but they really need to consider doing episodic, character-driven stories for a while, like what Archie was finally going to do before it got cancelled. If you need to write for the trades, do smaller, more focused stories that interconnect. I keep getting annoyed with this because IDW was a chance to start fresh, free from the shackles of the old nonsense. No Genesis Waves or backstory dumps. But all it seems to have done is throw out the good bits of Archie while still retaining the weaker aspects. Boring melodrama, fanservice as a crutch, and story arcs that just go on and on and on.
  14. I don't care about Star Wars anymore, but this is honest to God one of the funniest things i've seen
  15. He's not going to get removed. Dems will nominate some neolib moderate like Biden or a weak Obama-esque psuedo-progressive like Warren. Literally anything to prevent significant change. Trump will use the entire impeachment spectacle to rile up his base in 2020 and ensure his re-election.
  16. >another fucking forced lyrics reference Hahahaha this comic sucks so bad. This is worse than Shattered World at this point. It just keeps going on and on and on because Ian can't fucking pace a story. "but idw made him do it cuz trades" Who the fuck cares. He's been at this shit for 13 years. Write a bunch of strong short stories. If you're forced to do a saga for a year or more, write a bunch of connected four-parters or something. This shit has no flow or creativity to it. It's just things happening all over the place. Total fucking garbage.
  17. There are two emotional states. Emotion (crying) and No Emotion (everything else).
  18.  

    Proto-Knuckles's animation is so much better, wtf

     

  19. I really think we were denied the next Howard the Duck.

    1. QuantumEdge

      QuantumEdge

      Don't say it's over so soon.  The idea of a Taika Waittiti led reboot isn't such an unrealistic prospect.  

      That said, such a film would probably be too much for us mortals.

    2. Teoskaven

      I'd rather have a TV-series format: a lot of Howard the Duck stories are essentially murder mysteries, he even has a detective agency and all, so one case per episode with occasional two-parters would be ideal. Hell, have him co-star along She-Hulk, they shared building once.

  20. He did. Jet is actually 300 years old.
  21. I can't take Eggman seriously unless he's actively carrying out a genocide.

  22. Should've stuck with the original design. Now the movie's just going to be regular bad instead of comically bad.
  23. Sonic Mania Adventures should be the only Sonic media going forward

    1. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      Mania Adventures is nice and all, but admittedly I kinda already miss Sonic being able to... well, talk.

      Strickerx5

      Yeah, but at the same time we have a very nice VA staff now so I'd like to get them involved. Not to mention more tie-in with the modern universe (if that's what we're fucking calling anything past 3&K now Sega).
