    Ryusuke reacted to dbzfan7 in IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog   
    I'm not sure if I'm in the minority or not, but I really hope we just start with a complete blank slate with these IDW comics. I want Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, Eggman, and the characters I know, and not the 90's cartoon characters I never watched. I don't want the Sally's, Bunnie's, Nicoles, whatevers. I just want the iconic characters to be the ones to follow. And that's not me saying those other characters are bad or whatever....cept for Scourge that seemed really dumb. It's just I get completely lost/disinterested when any focus is on them. Especially when characters I want to see take a back seat to them. As much shit and pure potentially unrivaled hatred I give Sonic Boom, at least it always focuses on at least one or all of the main cast, and doesn't make them a back seat to some other folk.
    As an outsider as well as a person not groomed/not raised with those characters in a sub series, I can't bring myself to care for em. I am not against them returning, but so long as it doesn't take away from the characters I want to see front and center. I don't want the iconic characters to become supplementary/background characters to their stories. If anything I'd rather it be the flipside. Though I do understand the ire some long fans have. I think those comics have gone on for so long, it's about time for a new fresh take that will allow a new generation of people/readers to follow along. Or an older generation who never really followed the comics/SATAM.

    I wonder how Jason would be like these days. He's so good in his other stuff. 
    As for the voice acting for the final game, I'm sure it'll be alright in the end.

    Ryusuke reacted to Mad Convoy in Sonic plots should have professional writers   
    Look dude, hate to break it to you, but Pontaff and Nakamura are both professional writers. If I recall correctly, one of the reasons people liked Pontaff back in 2010 was that they weren't fans or some unfortunate producer, programmer, etc. put into the role of writer-- they actually did it for a living and had some good comedies under their belt.
    That isn't a defense per say of Pontaff specifically, but I thought that was important because it proves that professional writers are not inherently better at producing good plots and dialogue than fans.
    However, I can see your point about not letting the fans get too involved. Most Sonic fans are very passionate and full of ideas, but they often don't know much of anything about design, video game development, etc. We tolerate it when its fans because most of the time they release their work for free and it is almost never expected that they produce works at the quality level of a trained professional. But when we have to pay money for it and its from people who are professionals and presumably went to college for this, it quickly becomes annoying and frustrating. Also, I find that a lot of Sonic fans tend to be short-sighted and so shoot down concepts the moment they get fucked up, only later looking back to see if the problem was the concept or the execution. Sonic Unleashed is a good example of this in action and the consequences they incur in the games that try to be more fan-oriented.
    However, like professional reviewer, just because they're unreliable doesn't mean you can't take some cues from what they're saying. If a lot of people are saying "I want level designs in this game to be more open and allow more exploration, as well meatier 3D sections," then you should definitely incorporate longer 3D sections that require and reward you for not just going straight into the planning for the next game. But at the same time, if you get a loud group that are saying "No more linearity, it does nothing but harm!" then you can safely ignore it because it clearly comes from people who don't understand how game design works. Even the most non-linear of titles, whether it be Minecraft or Zelda or the Sims, need some elements of linearity-- the player has to have all the necessary tools and guidance at their disposal to be able to figure out the goal of the game or which goal(s) out of multiple options they want to pursue, as well as know what to do in the game, and in pursuing their desired goals, they go through a sequence of steps (logged as flags that are sequentially set and accessed so that the game knows what you've done, sometimes where you did it, and sometimes when you did it, and can tailor what the game shows you accordingly) which is a part of the definition of linearity.

    So...Ian write's Sonic in character and that makes him unprofessional? What?

    Ryusuke got a reaction from Syntax Speedway in Sonic fans, I'm curious. Why do you continue to support the Sonic franchise when SEGA struggles to keep the quality consistent? What's keeping you around?   
    I love the series in general and what was good about it is special and is still enjoyable. But, I do think a lot of Sonic Team's games are pretty eh. And, it was kind of a bummer in the 2000s since there was a lot of bad. But, now we have Ian Flynn's comics, Generations, Colors, some of the handheld games, Mania and the Sonic Boom cartoon that's pretty rad (at least to me).

    If I had to critique, the scripting sometimes doesn't really fit what the character models are saying, like "Here goes, Partner!" doesn't really match Sonic's animation. And, something about Quinton Flynn's reads feel out of context somehow. Though I think, again, it's probably the script's fault. Knuckles and Infinite are fine, though

    I don't think anyone is surprised - we're just taking this opportunity to laugh at him again in another language.

    Awesome! Updated the opening posted with this.
    I never really had any problem with this game, but this definitely the most exciting trailer they put out so far.
