    Heckboy got a reaction from Wraith in How would you fix Sonic's lore, gameplay, narrative, and characters?   
    This isn't a mandate. The idea is that Sonic can't be totally defeated (as was the case with the story where Knothole got wiped out) without a victory soon after. Stuff like the Mecha Sally arc had Sonic constantly losing with the promise that the heroes would eventually triumph.
    The mandates are largely exaggerated. Same with "Sonic can't get overly depressed and break down", which has morphed into "Sonic can't have emotion" in the fanbase for some reason.

    I wouldn't really say that's a nitpick. The legs are part of what makes the design so grotesque and unappealing.
    Not to say that Sonic fans aren't ever nitpicky, but just in that particular instance I think criticism is justified.

    It's worth noting that '06 happened near the height of Sonic's popularity, and Lyric not long after Generations which was by many considered a return to form. Currently the franchise is at the lowest point it's ever been since, and it's gotten to a point that stuff no longer sells on brand recognition alone - I doubt people will be as forgiving to a trainwreck released today, even if it's ultimately a separate venture to the core games.

    It's gonna be totally wild! The Sonic the Hedgehog film is sure to feature a ton of badass and epic action sequences involving alien ships and robots (that look like robots from the epic Transformers films, which made a lot of money at the box office). Order your tickets today or they'll fire me I mean I can't fucking wait!

    Or I can just watch the trailer and make a judgement then and there, since that's what trailers are meant for.

    There's some background stuff in the games that suggest he runs several shell corporations. Eggman Industries, Robotnik Corporation, MeteorTech. Plus I think Battle mentions he also sells tech on the black market. This notion of Eggman as a businessman appears to go all the way back to the early days.

    Heckboy got a reaction from Âmesang in The Lara-Su Chronicles and Ken Penders topic - READ PAGE 164, POST 4096   
    There's a few locations on the map that never showed up in the comic, for whatever reason. They might've just come up with cool-sounding locations with the intention of maybe using them later but it never happened.
    I've actually always wondered what the Land of a Million Lights is supposed to be.

    Eggman has always looked down on other people because of his Very High IQ. As a result he has never been able to form a meaningful bond with any other person, save for maybe Gerald. He's obviously no fan of organic beings and prefers the cold efficiency of machines, but I think deep, deep down he craves some sort of connection with a living being, something even the most advanced AI can never truly provide. He has, perhaps subconsciously, come to enjoy his rivalry with Sonic because of this, since even though it's an intensely antagonistic relationship, it's the closest thing he has to a genuine bond with another living person.

    Unleashed is definitely not part of the Dreamcast era.

    I have no particular loyalty to VALVe, but I have no reason to think they're dishonest when they say that if the service shuts down you at least have some of measure that you'll still have your games. How they'll manage that, I don't know, but I have a good deal bit more faith that they'll stand behind tat statement if the time were to come than Epic games. I can't say that I have that faith for many other digital distribution services, aside from GoG, certainly not with Epic Games.
    You're doing a lot of apologetics for shady companies that are actively participating in anti-consumer behavior, which basically amounts to "I don't see it as a big deal because everyone else does it and Steam isn't even that great anyways". It's not really a compelling argument that fails to even try to empathize with the points that PC users are making.
