    No, because nothing is going to happen to Penders, because anything happening to Penders over friggin comic book characters speaks of a foolishness and naivete beyond what even the man himself is capable of.

    Sixth-Rate Soma reacted to Diogenes in Do you think Sonic's reputation will ever recover?   
    If you're asking if Sonic's reputation can ever be spotless again, obviously not. The shit that's gone down is never going to just go away. It's part of the series' history. It may not always be the face of the series, but it can't just be erased.
    If you're asking if Sonic's reputation can become positive again in spite of what's gone down...probably. People don't hate Sonic for no reason. If the series can actually clean up its act and start putting out consistently good games, people will start to respect it again. But that's a very big "if".

    Sixth-Rate Soma got a reaction from Omario in Do you think Sonic's reputation will ever recover?   
    i'd say all anyone wants out of sonic is consistently good games. we're an odd sort of people that kick around here; we like our flawed gems and our beautiful failures, always pumped and ready to play whatever comes our way for about a hundred different reasons. lots of people will argue about whether they thought the boost trilogy was worth iterating on, but the one thing those games (almost) all accomplished? lots of good stuff with no catch. the thing that has people hyped about sonic mania? lots of good stuff with no catch. nobody really expects sonic to appeal to all his disparate fanbases, they just hope to have a good time playing his games. if they do, a lot of the problem is already solved.

    Live from Square Enix, Tetsuya Nomura hard at work on FFVII:R and KH3:

    Really though, Versus XIII never really existed outside of pre-production if I recall correctly (with full development starting when they re-branded it as XV), so I actually feel it's kind of a blessing that they're starting FFVII:R this early in comparison.
    Curious what happened between Square and CyberConnect2 though.

    Art Feenix, I believe I missed the part where Secret Rings looked better than Lost World.
     
    Just having more realistic textures or aspects does not make an artstyle good. If that were true, then Wind Waker is the ugliest game of all time.

    I'm torn. On the one hand, I'd argue that Generations presented the best experience out of the Modern stable; not as stop and start as Unleashed, nor as monotonous as Colors could get. And as much as Lost World presented neat ideas, there was never really a reason to completely overhaul the gameplay in such a fashion. They had found something that worked; the least reasonable idea was to merely abandon the blueprint.
    On the other hand, this is literally just that game again. It's weird. Usually the problem I have with Sonic games is a lot of unnecessary innovation, but this is the first I could accuse of not being adventurous enough. I suppose we'll have to see for certain once we have more gameplay to work with; after all, Super Mario World was in many way just a brushing up of Mario 3, and turned out fantastically. It's really going to be down to how well they polish the experience. If, at the end of the day, they deliver a fun game that justifies its existence, I'll be very pleased. That's all I've ever asked for.

    We have to do something about ourselves. It's clear to everyone that there's more than a tolerable level of hostility pervading this place as of late, though there's no one clear reason why. I dunno if the negativity is brought on by the recent trend in games or just by the recent trend in our behavior, but either way it needs to stop, and we need to do something about it. I care too much about you guys and too much about this community to let it devolve into rubbish; the least we can do is to give a shot at something.
     
    But what can we do? How do you change the trajectory of such a large group of people?I keep trying to think of something, but I'm too run down and tired to do the project any good. I need your guys' help. If not for me, then for each other, and for the future members of the board. What can we do?

    After the failed and dangerous early prototype Biolizard. Professor Gerald Robotnik knew that the perfect Ultimate Life Form had to be a hedgehog thus continuing "Project Shadow".
                                                                 However there were some prototypes that didn't turn out too well...
                               PROJECT SHADOW
                                       REJECTED PROTOTYPES
                                                                Prototype 1
                                                                            Prototype 1 has brawns, bravery, and charm.
                                   Unfortunately it lacks brains and it is too vain and focused on it's look to care for others or do it's assigned missions.
     
                                                                 Prototype 2
     
                                                               Prototype 2 on the other hand has huge intelligence and responsibility as it's main advantage.
                                                             However, it's disadvantages are lack of physical strength and it is rather cowardly.
     
                                                                       Prototype 3
                                                               Prototype 3 has neither brains or brawns.
    It features a rather child-like personality as in being very spoiled, crying and whining aggressively when he doesn't get what he wants and constantly causing mischief. It wasn't a complete failure as this one was the most emotionally close one to Prof Gerald as he felt like a son to him.            
                                                                  Prototype 4
              Prototype 4 was almost perfect as it had intellect, strength, and common sense. It had one flaw though.
           It was lazy. It didn't care about anything, It never followed orders and it refused to use the potential it had.
           Those were all the failed prototypes that Gerald made to be the Ultimate Life Form. It took a long time til he successfully created the 
                                                                                           TRUE SHADOW.
    PS: Have a nickel for everytime I say the word "prototype".

    Current Character Theme: Big the Cat
    Current Weekly Theme: Cute Couples Get In Free!
    So hey, with a new year starting up, I figured I'd take a shot at a fun thread I've thought of doing before, but never went through with. In this thread, we all draw Sonic characters...badly. Whether you're a professional artist relaxing with some low-effort doodles or someone who can barely find the sharp end of the pencil, everyone is welcome. Just chill out and have fun with it. Current themes will be ^^^up there at the top of the post.
    RULES:
    1. Draw.
    2. Draw Sonics.
    3. Draw Sonics Badly.
    4. Be chill.
    Q&A:
    -So how's this gonna work, exactly?
    Simple enough. Every three days I'll post a character, and you draw that character, as many times as you want, in whatever situations or styles you want. There will also be a weekly theme (starting on Monday) running in parallel, something that's a little more complex than just drawing one character. Current themes are at the top of this post, upcoming and previous themes can be found at the bottom of this post. The length of each theme is open to change depending on how the thread goes. If this is still going when we run out of themes, we'll cycle back through.
    -Can I draw characters outside of the current theme?
    Sure, why not. I would prefer if you did try to keep to the theme, though, so we can see a bunch of different takes on the same theme together, and so people will try drawing things they wouldn't think to otherwise. But if you missed your chance to draw your favorite character, or want to draw one that hasn't come up yet, or whatever, then it's fine, go for it!
    -Can I suggest future characters/themes?
    Sure! I've got a pretty decent backlog though (see bottom of post), and unless you point out a glaring character omission or your suggestion makes me laugh it'll go on the end of the list, so it might be a while before it comes up. Also I retain the right to reject any suggestion if I think it's too obscure or boring. Remember that you can still draw it on your own, though.
    -But I can't draw...
    Sure you can! You can draw...badly! That's the whole point, no matter what your skill level, no matter what your medium, just doodle some goofy looking Sonics and post them. This isn't a thread for criticism and dead-serious art, it's for goofing off and having fun, and maybe getting a little bit of practice in.
    -I really want to criticize this guy's art though!!!
    Don't. Just be chill.
    -Actually I'd like people to criticize my art...
    Well, if you want it, you can ask for criticism. But this probably isn't the best thread to look for it. I'm pretty sure there's an Artist Association thread buried somewhere in the Showcase, you can dig that up and talk serious about art in there if you want.
    -Can I Draw Sonics Goodly instead?
    Yeah, sure! I mean, that's not really the point of this, but if you get into a good groove and end up with something you're proud of, it's fine to post it here.
    -What do I get for participating?
    Fuck all! It's just for fun. Chill out, draw something goofy, laugh along with us.
    -I'm gonna draw dicks
    Don't draw dicks. Please obey all normal forum rules.
    Character Themes:

    Weekly Themes:
    -----
    And of course we'll start with the most natural first choice; the current character theme is Sonic the Hedgehog!

    Whether it's Classic, Modern, Boom, Sanic, or other, all spiky blue hedgehogs with attitude are welcome. 
    And to kick things off, here's one from me:

    But seriously, of all the bad options we could've been given, this is pretty much the least bad. Unexciting? Sure. A little silly, with the grimdark? Yeah, probly. But it doesn't have a 50% chance of being absolute trash, which are the odds Sonic usually bets on. If it's really just another Generations... then hey, Generations wasn't all that bad at all. Maybe we're just kinda spoiled by a franchise that shifts focus dramatically between each individual installment.
