  1. I don't know why Sega so vehemently blocks certain Sonic characters from appearing in certain media. 

    Like, why do they care so much?

    1. Dejimon11


      consistant branding. 

    2. Thigolf


      Characters that are still alive and well appearing in comics is hardly gonna shatter their branding.

      Not to mention they themselves throw around the personalities of their characters from game to game so...

    3. Blue Blood

      Yeah, I think they just want to make sure that things are kept relatively tidy in that regard.

      Taking Infinite as an example, Forces left his fate somewhat ambiguous and the IDW comics are supposed to be a direct continuation of it. They're a separate canon the games, but all signs currently point to the comics running relatively parallel to games. It makes sense to keep certain plot points like that in check.

      Taking Mighty and Ray as another example... Yeah that's dumb. It's where the whole Classic and Modern stupidity comes into play. But if Vector can appear in Boom, why can't Mighty and Ray show up in the modern universe? 

      The franchise is mess. I don't know about everyone else but I'm still of the mind that SEGA would be well off getting the comic staff to design the scenario and write the script for the games.

      The rules on classic characters appearing in modern games (and vice versa) have always been strict, regardless of other assets being adapted more easily, it's only recently they have that consistent across all media. 

      As for game stuff appearing in Boom, not only would it be expected that the main franchise has more freedom to muscle in on side branches, the rules on characters appearing were never set in stone in the first place. 

      Hey, it's more logical now than "Oh, Omega and Cream appeared in the Sonic X comic so they can't be in the main comic".

      It just bugs me that there's more than one game universe in the first place (and the whole "two worlds" nonsense that was plucked out of thin air for QA session). There was only one universe until somewhere between Generations, Mania and Forces.

    6. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I'd argue there was always a mentality of keeping things separate, if only by virtue of there not being a classic branch for classic characters to return to. If that wasn't made, they'd still be dead characters. 

    7. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      SA1, S4  and Generations imply otherwise. Heroes bringing back the Chaotix as new characters is arguably evidence of there being two universes, but that doesn't make it any less stupid imo. There's just no need for that complication.

    8. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Generations yes because that was probably what started it (and then got retconned to fit it, continuity be damned), SA1 and S4 I'm more dubious on because they always seemed like they were telling the equivalent of the classic events as they happened in the modern timeline (hence the really bad snarl of continuity that cropped up with S4E2). 

      And yes it is a ball of mess, I am not arguing against that bit. 

    9. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I never chose to interpret it that way, because it requires leaping to conclusions. Rather than being two universes, there were simply some characters redesigns with SA1. That's all that was ever the case until things were changed retroactively.

      only male hedgehogs can go super except blaze because she's from a different dimension although in sonic 2006 she is from the future like silver the hedgehog except silver as of sonic forces now appears in the present much like eggman nega who in sonic rush is said to be from blaze's dimension but in sonic rivals is now from the future which is a period of time you can travel to in sonic the hedgehog cd which is generally thought to take place after sonic 1 but before sonic 2 in addition to being a prequel to sonic 4 which takes place after sonic 3&K and on its former website states that knuckles' story in sonic 3 happens at the same time sonic's story happens in that game even though the events of that game indicate knuckles' story takes place after sonic 3's story as opposed to sonic mania which is said to have knuckles' story take place at the same time as sonic's who at the end of that game was transported by the phantom ruby into sonic forces and is considered to be a different dimension from the millenium sonic games although he is also supposed to be a classic "younger" self of the sonic from that dimension who alongside shadow and silver are the only characters that can go super because they are all male hedgehogs.

      except blaze because she's from a different dimension

    11. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      blaze doesn't go super

    12. Milo


      that's right. i made an error.

      blaze technically does not go "super," she transforms into "burning" blaze form, as granted to her by the sol emeralds.

  2. I love Sega AGES mostly for giving other SEGA IPs attention, but gosh, a portable SA1 on the Switch would be a dream come true for me.

    Also really curious about the Sonic 2 extras they have planned. Shame they didn't show or tease anything more concrete at TGS.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      A port of the 360 version of SADX that runs at 900p docked and sub 720p in handheld and still doesn't support wide-screen.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      I know that I'm big on Jet Set Radio,

      but OH HONEY


  3. AA needs a full on reboot with completely new characters, I feel like

    Or maybe not need, but I think it would be a nice change of pace.

    1. Blue Blood
    2. Thigolf


      Yeah. The old cast just feels kinda whatever at this point. A completely new cast would do wonders to me.

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Totally, totally agree.

      I could get into why I dislike certain characters, but my main issue is probably that the plots have seen a ridiculous power creep.

    4. JosepHenry


      Well... DGS exists and is everything you would want, cases are way more grounded and personal for starters.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Who could forget DGS?

      Everyone outside of Japan, for starters.

    6. JosepHenry


      it has a fantranslation now, no excuse not to play it

      just watch out cuz  the game is insanely racist

    7. Thigolf


      I don't really dislike any of the characters, I just think that they mostly just... ran their course. Time for something new.

      And yes, Capcom releasing DGS in the West would've been great, but it's an AA game without Phoenix, so why bother

    8. JosepHenry


      Man I am so done with Phoenix. He just needs to marry Edgeworth already and the end.

      Naruhodou is the best attorney

  5. No new Sega AGES games announced at TGS, appearently.


    1. TheOcelot
    2. JosepHenry


      this server should have been pure rom and iso emulation

      ports are not goddamn worth it

  6. I fucking love Ring Fit Adventure

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      It looks pretty cool, actually. An exercise RPG sounds fun. I might pick it up when it comes out.

    2. Celestia


      Ring Fit Protagonist for Smash

    3. Sonictrainer


      It looks like a Storybook Sonic Game

  7. Ryu...

    Terry Bogard...

    Now all that is missing from the holy trinity of japanese fighting games is a certain King of Iron Fist...

    1. Teoskaven


      Virtua Fighter is truly forgotten...

    2. Dejimon11


      @Teoskaven there’s an assist trophy.

    3. Teoskaven


      On that sense shouldn't there also be an Heiachi Mii costume?

    4. Dejimon11


      Yeah in Smash 4. Smash Ultimate doesn’t have one

    5. Jango


      The immortal Iron fist.

    ...on the Apple Arcade.

    in which you play an ant.



    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      being a rayman fan is suffering

    2. blueblur98


      are you kidding me

    3. Thigolf


      Okay, false alarm, you don't play as an ant, you use insects to platform - basically Honey I shrunk the Rayman - Fiesta Run

    4. Menace2Society


      Oh, hell yeah. That sounds awesome.

      Jungle and Fiesta Run are among the best mobile games. 

    5. blueblur98
  9. Legit surprised the Sonic Twitter didn't acknowledge SA's 20th Anniversary in the States.

    1. Dejimon11


      The Sonic Twitter doesn’t like to acknowledge anniversaries. Just toys and memes

    2. dbzfan7


      The only adventure they like to talk about is Big's Big Fishing Adventure 3.

  10. Rayman not being in Smash seriously feels like an oversight at this point. I know he's not popular in Japan and that's probably the reason why, but he just seems like such a glaring omission. 

    1. Soniman


      Idk man Crash is way bigger 

    2. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Was Banjo popular in japan? If not well he still got in

  11. Is it just a Sonic Comic curse of being permanently delayed or is that a general problem american comic books have? Because it sounds annoying as fuck.

    1. Red


      It's a problem all IDW books have, not just Sonic.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      @Thigolf A comic being delayed isn't anything new, and sometimes it does happen in the industry for whatever reason. Sometimes the artists need extra time, sometimes life throws staff a curve ball resulting in delays.

      Or in the case of Afterlife with Archie the project was mismanaged to hell.

    3. Thigolf


      I just think having to check if the comic your waiting for is actually coming out the day it is supposed to and not delayed for a week or two or three on a relatively short notice seems cumbersome as heck.

  12. You ever sit back, look at Smash Ultimate's roster and think to yourself

    "I can't believe this exists"

    1. JezMM


      To be honest, impressive as the individual DLC reveals are, I still go back and occasionally watch the Nintendo store live reaction to Snake and the EVERYONE IS HERE moment, it was mindblowing.



    Also more characters

    Sakurai will never catch a break

      bandana waddle dee: *violent flashbacks*

  16. What if Ash is traveling through all regions in the anime because GF/TPC actually delayed SwSh, so they pushed in a "filler arc" until he arrives at Galar

    1. Forgetful Panda

      Forgetful Panda

      I doubt it. They wouldn’t give the series a simple name that implies some kind of reboot if it was just a filler arc.

      Mai Shiranui when

    3. JosepHenry




      needs to be her. won't care about anyone else.

    4. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      So going by other rumors...


      Mai Shiranui

      Makes sense considering she's pretty iconic to SNK in general


    5. Thigolf


      Metal Slug, c'mon

    6. Little T

      Little T

      If that other leak is anything to go by, my bet is on Fio from Metal Slug, which I'd be happy with!


    7. Thigolf


      @Little T Don't give me hope

  20. Jake Kaufman is indeed not involved with the Shantae 5 OST

    Oh man :/

    1. JezMM


      This is a shame but I like the new music just as well.  My only fear is it's a little more "video gamey" than the most recent Shantae soundtracks, which had a lot of dancey oomph going on that made them super enjoyable out of context and gave them an extra coolness factor in context.

      Shantae was no stranger to such video gamey music for plenty of tracks but my only concern is that the whole OST will be that way.  We'll see.  The dungeon music is great anyways, and honestly the slightly more subdued tone compared to Jake's previous dungeon themes is actually a little refreshing, definitely gives the game an air of newness.

      Either way it's clear that the new music person (or people) is paying due respect to the established style.

    2. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      I wonder what the deal is. Surely they would have him involved in the series he's worked on since the beginning unless there was some kind of falling out...or unless he's just ready for new things.

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      It's a shame, although I have my doubts anything would top some of the tunes from the other games. Love these in particular: 


    5. JezMM


      @PC the Hedgehog

      I doubt there was a falling out.  Jake's been doing the music for the new Shovel Knight games that were announced so it was probably just bad timing schedule-wise.

    6. Thigolf


      He even mentioned being busy just yesterday, so yeah, it might just him being busy in recent years.

      It's still a shame - Jake is probably my favorite video game composer period, I just adore his style, so even though the new composers are doing just fine, part of me is just like "Man, we missed out on more Shantae music by Jake".

  21. Insta Transformations is such a good call in Shantae 5

    Not a fan of the music so far, though. I'm worried Jake isn't back.

  22. What's your favorite Unleashed Daytime Stage song?

    1. Joy


      Probably Holoska for me. If we count remixes though I give honourable mention to Classic Rooftop Run from Generations.

    2. Adamabba


      Rooftop Run

    3. Harkofthewaa


      I always like me some Slideshow Joyride.

      Since everyone’s already saying the same my fav one, I’ll say my second favourite, which is Dragon Road.

    5. Cayenne


      All of them.

  23. Seriously, what the heck happened with the ARMS comic? I was really looking forward to it.

    1. Tangled Jack

      Tangled Jack

      Ugh, let me guess… Nintendo?

    2. Strickerx5


      I mean, Nintendo couldn’t even be bothered to care about the story in the actual game.

      Probably didn’t help when the game itself didn’t take off either.

  24. The fact that Lets Go has to load  sometimes after you picking a command in battle despite looking so basic is truly fascinating.

  25. I forgot how absurdly fun Splatoon is. I love it so much.
