  1. Oh, I was more in line talking about those purple energy balls he spits out, but yea he does have those, too (I honestly didn't even register those pink balls as eggs until literally yesterday, too) Apparently that's how the lizard was supposed to asexually reproduce, too on top of weaponizing them.
  2. Yea haha. It's a shame he has all this stuff like laser canons and energy balls... but it has no legs. It's just has little fins where his legs should be. Unless he somehow lost them, I can kiiiinda see why he wasn't quite the perfect version of the ultimate life form Gerald was looking for.
  3. @DabigRG Oh yea, when you read the project report it says that the Biolizard can successfully Chaos Control warp due the specially made organs it has (and that's the first thing it does as Sonic and Knuckles tries to reach for the emerald shine in the Ark's core before Shadow steps in). It just sucks at walking and is extremely sensitive to temperature and humidity changes which is why I'd suspect the swelling would start happening to him like when he's in space like in his Finalhazard phase (albeit his life support system was busted at that point too).
  4. @StaticManiaI guess that's where they could've started it all from for the project, but what I'm trying to get at is Shadow the Hedgehog (the game) makes it seem like Black Arms started it all, but the timeline where all the events take place don't seem to suggest that being possible. @DabigRG Yup, that's what the Project Shadow reports imply, that the Biolizard got waaaay too big for it's own good. Well, I should say that it is self sustaining in a sense though, since it did manage to live on it's own for 50 years while completely abandoned in space. It just can't crawl well and out of that yellow solution it sits in before immediately swelling up, but it still can chaos warp to places just fine. There's also a perfect guide book for SA2 (Still trying to find this damn thing for myself online though) where Rouge apparently actually goes into more detail about what happened with the Biolizard, the Ark and everything, explaining how the Biolizard got too out of hand at points of testing on top of the other limitations it had which led Gerald to eventually start making Shadow. In Sa2's last Story, Gerald even says "Based on the original data, I have finally perfected Shadow", telling me that Shadow mostly got everything, like his eternal engine that makes him immortal, his specially made organs that allows him to perform Chaos Control, and even his red and black color scheme, from the Biolizard, not whatever that was going on in Shadow the Hedgehog (the game).
  5. Alright, so I'm back doing my occasional Sonic Adventure 2 check up and just trying to piece together the whole "Project Shadow" mystery. Long story short, what I want to know is, how did the Biolizard's color scheme end up being red and black? Now hear me out. I've recently also started to look back on Shadow the Hedgehog's (the game) origin story. Apparently from that game's telling of Shadow's origin story, it was Black Doom who gave Shadow his blood in order for the immortality project aka Project Shadow that Professor Gerald was working on to become a success. And thus, Shadow's color scheme became black and red to reflect the fact he's part of the Black Arms alien race. Now what I don't get is.... how is it that the Biolizard also has the same color scheme? He's not mentioned at all in Shadow the Hedgehog (the game) conveniently enough. Also, the Biolizard was the first creation for Project Shadow, and it's heavily implied in Sonic Adventure 2 that that project was squarely referencing Perfect Chaos for inspiration (Perfect Chaos is also immortal, reptilian, heavily connected with Chaos Emeralds, and a watery giant), but in Shadow the Hedgehog (the game), they make it seem like Shadow was made first (if not the only creation since apparently he was "born" from the deal Gerald and Black Doom made together). Another thing to note is that, based on the project report papers Rouge was shoving Shadow's face in in SA2, it clearly shows the Biolizard with the same black and red color scheme (the page she's holding is in black and white but you can tell the underside of the Biolizard is still black and his top half is red) and that the project reads that the immortality goal (It's "eternal engine") was a success. And another thing to note is that it's all being powered up by Chaos Drives (those same little shards you see come out of Artificial Chaos when you destroy them in the Ark levels, telling the player that's how all Gerald creations function).... telling me that the Biolizard was already immortal, was functioning on something else entirely, and was ultimately red and black before Black Arm aliens came into the picture. For me, it always seemed like Shadow the Hedgehog (the game) retconned SA2, but I never really delved deep into the game until recently because things were just not adding up for me based on what both games were telling me the more I started paying attention. So here I am now. I don't know If I'd get an answer but it's just something I wanted to share.
  6. Huh, well I'll be damned. Learned something new today. Interesting how they randomly added that back in for Sonic Riders but then chose to get rid of it again afterwards.
  7. I got another one. Now let's look at our good ol fox friend, Tails. Particularly his classic iteration. Now, what if I told you that from these select images I provided, that there's something.... off? That same something, that was very prevalent and integral to the very core of Tail's design that only the most astute visionaries could catch when seen at the right given angle... was missing? A detail that was so important to the series, and yet was taken away from him (and us) and forever lost in translation, dare I say? Have you caught it yet? Well if not, look no further: His little hair tuft on the back of his head's been quietly yanked out since his modern redesign, and ever since has been forgotten for quite some time now, even for his classic appearances of today. This goes for Sonic Generations and even Sonic Mania. Well, mostly for Mania, anyway. Now oddly enough, even Sonic Mania's sprite animators remembered that Classic Tails is supposed to have that little hair tuft going on. Somehow they were able to remember that while the other animation crew for the Mania shorts and intro weren't. My hunch is that the spriters and cartoon animators either looked at two different references for Tails (because for whatever reason, there's a model sheet of Classic Tails floating around that doesn't include that hair tuft detail where even the "special zone" Tails design on the Genesis games decided to follow despite having that detail everywhere else) or they both forgot, but the spriters just ended up having that detail already at hand anyway since the Mania Tails sprite is already basically Sonic 2/ 3 Tails but with more frames of animation. I'm joking btw before some of you think I'm actually crazy, haha.
  8. @DabigRG Hmm is that so? See, although I don't know too much about Ken and what he does, I was under the assumption that he just flat out never bought a Genesis. If not and he actually did get one, I'd say it's weird how he revolves his entire career around a franchise he could care less about yet buys the system and game for his children to play with. Idk though. It just seems off. It's still weird how there's blatantly two different tv sets going by the cover art and the actual comic pages. Why would the suits be concerned about only the front cover and not the whole comic?
  9. Hold up. Something's not adding up. So looking further into the tweets, Ken elaborates on the making of the Sonic Live comic... Apparently the reason why his son wound up holding a tv remote pretending to play Sonic games instead of actually playing it with a genesis controller was because his family had just moved in the new house they took those shots in, and he had to hastily make a new cover photo since the original photo for the comic cover had a tv deemed "too old" for it to be used according to "the suits", so they didn't have time to pull out the Genesis for the comic... ...But I had just read up that giant blog post about Ken and his "legacy" at Archie and it said that he never even owned a Sega Genesis and didn't even like the damn games lol. Also, looking up the actual comic, the cover art showing all those games is clearly different from the actual photos within the comics where it looks like the "old tv" was still being used in the comics... yet there's still no Genesis to be found and his son is still using a tv remote...?
  10. Alright, I finally figured out how Sam got the Solo Sonic flying trick to work, haha. For whatever reason, this prototype has it so that even if you only have one controller connected, it could still read another port's inputs, even if there aren't any other controllers plugged in or around. So just map the buttons on port 2 of whatever emulator you're using, press up and double tap jump and bingo. You'll have Sonic solo fly akin to Sonic Mania
  11. Yeaaaa... you know, I'm testing it out myself and I can't figure out how the hell Sam did it akin to Mania's method either. It doesn't seem like anything goes out of the ordinary prior to him solo flying also so idk what's going on. Maybe it was just a glitch on his end?
  12. As far as I know, yea. I've seen it from Sam's Procrastination Station's live stream of the prototype where he solo flew with Sonic. Check it out @ 8:30 - 8:43
  13. It is pretty peculiar though that if the Drop Dash was a mere coincidence, then that'd make at least 2 coincidences, since Sonic solo flying with Tails is also a scrapped Sonic 3 move that just so happened to make its way into Mania. Either way, this discovery is so damn cool, though. I wonder what the Sonic 3 team would've called the drop dash today if they had actually stuck with the move. It's that that kinda stuff that makes you wonder what could've been.
  14. Yea, I'm pretty much gonna echo everyone here and say this looks MILES better than the trash heap we had months on end, and that for the first time ever, I'm actually genuinely happy about something about this movie. This may not be the quintessential Sonic movie people like myself was looking for (This movie still has lots of room for improvement people in this thread pointed out already), but it still looks like a good time to be had here. With that said tho....I think I have to put my tin foil nut case hat on for this one, because this turnaround was too great for me to believe there isn't something going on here. Wasn't there a report on a early screening of this movie where the viewers said something along the lines of "Omg that looks just like the Sonic I remember!" like a year or so ago? I feel like those people were referring to THIS Movie Sonic that we are finally seeing today, because there's no way in hell they were talking about that homonculus reincarnation we were dealing with before.
  15. I guess that's changed just to sell the fact that he's using a tranquilizer gun instead of a typical pistol.
