    Just a more elaborate way of agreeing to disagree.
  2. Archie Sonic Main Discussion

    Sonic fans must have made a big chunk of their sales if they're tryibg to advertise their new comic like that...
  3. Honestly not expecting anything too serious at the moment. And I can't think of any ideals here. At best, they'll just continue the same formula with gimmicks to keep it alive. Beyond that, I could imagine they'll change it up in a similar vein to how they tried Lost Worlds, tho how that'll pan out depends on what they'll do. Forces might do well sales-wise and mediocre at best with critics. At the very least it won't end up as bad as Sonic 06 come release when people play it, but it's lack of innovation is definitely going to make it grow stale if Sonic Team doesn't come up with something else that can work. Of course, that depends on how much they care too.

    Yeah, these were events before 160, so if that's the case then nevermind. It'll take longer than I'd like to go through and recap things. I'd say fair enough, but that's something to chalk up as an alternative characterization due to having a different developmental history in this continuity. With Archie Sonic being a combination of an adventurer and soldier who has a pretty stable home and life compared to the others where he's more of a vagabond, that just seems to be a natural expectation of things. I'd understand if it's the games where circumstances are different, but when you mix expectations like that you're bound to be disappointed when things don't match up. In a way, that's why I always make it a point to emphasize that alternate characterization, given that the flow of one setting isn't always going to be the same as that from the other. Kinda like comparing Marvel or DC Comics to their Cartoons or Movies.

    I wouldn't read it, so I wouldn't care if they did. Sticks is welcome to join the main verse tho.

    Whoa, wait. What? He has rebeled against that very authority he supported. Motherfucker committed straight up treason at least twice (and I'm sure he did this a lot more than I remember) and only got off due to either a technicality or because other people in power supported what he did and pulled strings. There's a bit of background behind it that was brought up during Naugus's dropping into the kingdom--every in the kingdom was tense and mixed about everything after the Iron Dominion took over. He was more hesitant being seen as commiting treason given that the people he was trying to protect were actually considering giving Naugus power--really, how would you feel if the very people you stood up and defended decided to go someone else who used to be an enemy to everyone for protection, despite you knowing full and well it's a bad idea? Mind you, Sonic wasn't going to just stop fighting Naugus, especially telling the council to their face that he was more than willing to commit treason (tho not in those words) when they're being stupid, but he was in a rock and a hard place where rebelling would have done more harm to his cause than he would have wanted despite his good intentions. And it was only because Eggman showed up with the second Death Egg that cut their conflict short.

    Because that "2/3", or more accurately two characters, are literally the only thing people are suggesting they could likely work without if they chose. No one here is suggesting that they cut or straight up trash the whole thing except you and ShroomZed, and you're being deliberately dishonest to frame everyone else's points that way.
  8. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    It makes for a good strawman, I know that for certain.
  9. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    I usually see adaptations as a way to do something unique that the original didn't do or failed to capitalize on. Something that goes along similar lines but does something with its own twists and takes. That was one thing I really liked about the Unleashed adaptation in Archie despite its flaws...okay, it was mainly because of the Egg Bosses and seeing everyone who wasn't Unleashed (game cast or not) get involved, but still.
  10. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    I'm sorry, and you're certain of this how again? Because I don't see any evidence of this possibility being shitty. No, that's being open-minded to a possibility. And that is still no excuse for you to go strawmanning that as blindly taking a hatchet to something.
  11. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    That's essentially an adaptation. Well if that's the case, how about you actually read what people are actually saying or asking about the story instead of starting another potshot at Forces and strawmaning people's points as "blindly taking a hatchet" to something for suggesting they find a way to work around something to make an adaptation?
  12. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    Good for you. I doubt that theory will even end up being true given what we've seen of Infinite's possible origins, but on the off chance it does they can stick to Eggman with Infinite at his side to conquer the world and find something to make up for that element lost. I still don't see why you of all people would find that such a big issue when you hardly like anything about Forces anyway.
  13. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    No, it does not, and this is about the biggest grasp for straws I've seen you reach for to date. Especially when, as it's been said countless times, one of those characters is represents the player and the other is just the the Main character from earlier period (different dimension nonsense aside). The Avatar itself wouldn't be that essential to the general plot of Forces given that detail alone, if they decide not to include him/her. There are plenty of ways to adapt something like this--missing two characters isn't going to damage that. And if you feel it ruins the adaptation--one which you've never liked from the start, I should add--then that's a personal problem on your end, not the problem with the adaptation.
  14. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    If the lack of the Avatar character and Classic Sonic is somehow enough to discredit it as a Forces adaptation, as opposed to everything else that makes up Forces (i.e. Eggman with Infinite and him taking over the world), then that's just being small-minded and petty.
  15. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    My bad. Thought that's what you meant. Yeah, that's hella overblown. And it almost sounds like those people simply hate seeing their character have flaws honestly.
