  1. y'all remember ken balough?

    1. Sonictrainer

      I still have fanart of him in a dress and posing with Big the Cat

      It was a contest on the SEGA Forums and it won me a PS3 Code for Sonic Generations.

      I remember how he decided to promote Sonic 4 Episode 2:

      Get a Sample of Tomorrow's Sonic Talk Interview with Ken Balough ... 

    3. KHCast

      Wasn’t there some controversy with him regarding the promotion of Unleashed as well?

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      The only thing I recall going wrong with him regarding Unleashed was during an interview with GameSpot at E3 when he implied that all of Sonic's friends like "Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Shadow" would be in the game. It's pretty evident that he simply misspoke or was mistaken.

      He works for Xbox now, I think. He spent a good few years at Sony after leaving SEGA. His career has only gone from strength to strength since then actually. During his time at SEGA he put his foot in it with Sonic fans more than once. He really drilled home the "Sonic 4 as you truly imagined it" line, demonstrated his complete lack of basic technical knowledge when defending S4E2's improper resolution rendering on PC, lashed out at fans on the official forums a few times and generally came off as the wrong guy for the job. But I mean if it was your job to sell S4 twice to the fans who hated it and the company responsible, you might be prone to a little stress too.

      He was really trying. It was an odd time during the early 2010s.

      Ultimately, though, Aaron Webber has kinda been the man for the job.

      "As U truly imagined it."

      He was cool. Just trying to do his job. This Brings me back to the crazy sonic 4 hype train days.

      currently they are basically having console wars over which billion dollar company put out the best twitter statement

    4. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      It's an ok-ish website for gaming news and literally nothing else. You see the news, you look it up either on twitter or look at the first post for the source and you get the hell out of there.

      Everyone says it's such a terrible place to (kinda like how people talk/have talked about here ironically) be but I have yet to find a forum that is just as easy to find active and diverse discussion on tbh. Neogaf went down the drain big time in terms of intelligible discourse after Resetera became a thing, twitter focuses on what's trending or people you follow so it's limited to whoever you follow, youtube wastes your time and doesn't have any back and forth...

      Where exactly are all the bastions of top-tier internet discussion to be found, exactly, if Resetera doesn't cut it?

      Edit: if this sounds standoffish I don't mean it to be, I legit want to know if there's anywhere better

    6. Bobnik

      Unfortunately all of the discussion forums are some kind of echo chamber, be it political, social, gaming, what have you. You just gotta weed out echo chambers that are sane enough to involve yourself in.

      I don't like Era because a lot of the times the discussions and people there are not sane (one of the more recent controversies was about one guy, who was a pretty active ResetEra user, review-bombing Ai the Somnium Files for what is essentially having a crush on a character that (in their opinion) was poorly realized). Oh, also mods of the forum covering for, let's just say, problematic people, doesn't help at all. As well as sometimes policing what people are allowed to say and whatnot.

      I don't have an account at Era but its gaming forum (I try to stay away from Etcetera) is the most efficient means for me to learn about general gaming news from all corners without having to check dedicated websites for PC/Nintendo/Sony/etc. It's also a good way for me to discover games, usually indie or retro ones, that people signal boost that I otherwise wouldn't have heard of. Just don't get so invested in what you read in certain threads that it upsets you so much and eats at you. Speaking from experience.

      I can't believe The Completionist is even more cancelled than he was yesterday, because Era spent three days actively trying to find something to hate him over while Jirard was publicly talking about how much he supported the BLM protests and giving places that he had donated to for his followers to also do so; and someone produced a photo of him at a wedding of someone Era doesn't like.

      Since very little "diverse discussion" actually happens on Era, you could try literally anywhere else that has a dedicated userbase.

      @The Deleter I dunno if it's a "bastion of diverse discussion" but there's SL&ENT (Sports, Life, & Entertainment) if you're curious. Site set up by a small community of people who discussed sports on GAF before being expelled en masse. I was there for a bit after the GAF exodus / before ERA's establishment and they seemed pretty chill. IDK.

      Is it fair to assume that I shouldn't look at the comments 

    4. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      that's always fair to assume

    5. Blue Blood

      @Chili DawgEvery time you don't cite a source, SEGA cut the budget for the next Sonic game. 

      As for the matter at hand, this is disappointing obviously, but good. Sony don't need to get involved, but they're taking a bit of a stand here. I don't think it seems like a false platitude just so that they can get more attention. I think this feels very genuine.

      Well, looks like Sega get this week all to itself now. For now.

       

      To think that so many companies have already pulled back on any big plans they've intended cause of the plague. And now they might wanna consider pulling back even further.

    7. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      so if i just keep not citing sources can i defund sonic out of existence and end all our misery?

    8. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Pulling back because of COVID-19 is something that they can't really avoid. Pulling back because of civil unrest and the causing factors of systemic racism is entirely self-imposed, and probably does Sony more harm than good. But the harm they're doing to themselves is negligible in the scheme of things, and they're putting out a very important message. Really good stuff, honestly.

    9. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      also yeah they're totes in the right here, wouldn't feel good bein all "fuck yeah vidya gaems" while there's... everything else outside

    10. Teoskaven

      I'd believe that if it wasn't for the fact that corporations have gotten malicious in recent years  by pretending to care about social problems only to use that to score more publicity and favorable reviews, so while on surface the statement is understandable, i wonder how genuine it actually is.

    11. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      @Teoskaven I feel the difference is there was no actual pressure on them to postpone it, and after the Covid 19 situation, postponing might even be detrimental to their business.

      So the fact that they still made this decision in spite of that, and over something that has no direct effect on their product, it really does speak a lot on how they feel.

    12. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      one should always remember any move made a corporation is not a move made by people, it is always calculated

      but calculations can get ya the right answer sometimes

    13. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Doesn't excuse lies and deceit though, i'd rather have not anyone telling me they respect and support my ideologies if it's just for having them set up in my favors, because they will drop the act (or worse) the instant they think it's not lucrative anymore. This is where the Silence, Brand! meme should be used unironically, stop being a bootlicker and let people fight their fights genuinely.

       

      @Kuzu Or they're simply biding their time for the sake of gaining a bigger momentum when things will calm down. Wich is baffling to me, what's happening right now is not a hooligan squabble that will dissipate in a few days and then everyone will act like nothing happened. If it is an honest statement, Sony is taking one of its biggest gambles since the reveal of the PS3, and something tells me they're not in a position where they should have done that.

  6. who remembers when ssmb filtered tssz to fluffy kittens?

      That happened?

    3. Chili Dawg

      Chili Dawg

      so back in like 2009 before everything happened on twitter, we had interwebsite drama, and tristan liked to stir up shit in the sonic community. i don't remember the exact nature of the drama, it was something stupid, but like, ssmb had a rule where we don't even bring up tssz i think, and if you typed tssz in a post, it was censored as "fluffy kittens"

    4. Ferno

      cute fluffy kittens, infact

    5. Milo

      Milo

      @Chili Dawg That "TSSZ > fluffykittens" text whitelist was at Sonic Retro, not here at TSS (at least, from what I remember).

      It's still in place over there, by the way.

      As for when nonsense with TSSZ really kicked into high gear, pretty sure it was in 2010 during the Sonic 4 era.

    6. Chili Dawg

      i swear we had it here as well, or maybe it just became ubiquitous enough that people started calling them that here as well

      It's a shame, because I'd love to see a Smash stage based on Angel Island, Station Square/Perfect Chaos, The ARK, Egg Fleet, or even Luminous Forest, but we all know that if Sonic gets a third stage it's gonna be Seaside Hill or some other not-Green Hill Zone.

  12. will never not be funny that silver of all people managed to be part of smash forever by virtue of his game being new when brawl came out

      And 06 never got the Wii port to make it even funnier 

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      And how the 06 victory theme is Sonic's Smash theme forever because it was new and he was put into Brawl at the last minute
