  1. As a severely biased person, this. Definitely. I've always found it weird you couldn't, anyway. I mean, it's supposed to be kind of a three-way war, right? GUN vs Eggman Empire vs Black Arms. Should have had one ending where Eggman and Shadow take out Doom and one ending where Eggman and Shadow take out GUN/Sonic. Then maybe Sonic and Shadow taking out Eggman and another Shadow and Doom taking out Eggman. Granted, there's a slew of other issues that needed to be addressed, but this particular one irked me and my bias.
  2. Please don't touch that.

  3. You know, when I was younger and playing Sonic 2 for the first time on my Genesis, I used to always think that the Grabbers in Chemical Plant were sucking up Sonic's blood.

  4. I dunno if it's just me, and I really have no proof of it, but I always felt Heroes was originally supposed to go a different direction than what it did, but they changed course halfway through.

      I always wonder how the team of Mighty, Metal and Ray would have worked if the rumors of the pre-planning became fully developed.

    Does No One Here Want A SatAM/Archie Sonic Game?

    Hmm. Well, I guess that's kinda cool. Sonic games usually to exist in a bubble, at least it feels like.
  6. Stop doing that. Yeah. That. Stop.

    Does No One Here Want A SatAM/Archie Sonic Game?

    Thanks. Though I'm finding it a little hard to follow. I guess because I haven't played Mania either and I think "phantom ruby" is associated with Mania? At some point, I might actually play through them, if I actually get interested in Sonic again. Right now, I got a giant steam backlog of games that I haven't even opened and those desperately want my attention.

    Does No One Here Want A SatAM/Archie Sonic Game?

    I would, personally. But more importantly, I want the feeling that later Archieverse gave (more specifically, late pre-reboot but reboot had it too.) Where Eggman was a threat, had control over the world, had a large share of power and Sonic had to fight to free those parts of the world, but the big man always had another plan ready to go and is often met with a good amount of success. That is, hands down, the most important part of why I loved Archie. Sure, sure... I liked Sally, Nicole (she's adorable), Bunnie, Rotor, and Antoine. I liked several unique Archie characters like Mammoth Mogul and even didn't entirely dislike Scourge. I even dug Omega (I think he's incredibly boring in SEGA.) But what I want is that feeling of "fighting for freedom" and how powerful a man with an infinite pool of resources, robotic genius and a dash of bombastic nature can give. That Eggman, competent but still humorous, is what really made Archie for me. When Forces started being showcased, my interest was peaked, but I kinda tuned out the second that Infinite was revealed. It felt like they were starting to go that direction. Buuuut, the past kinda showed me that the second a new villain is introduced, Eggman plays second fiddle. I dunno what the story of Forces is, and honestly, I just don't care anymore.
  9. I know I'm late to the party. But I didn't realize the SEGA forums shut down until today. I've been really off the Sonic grid.

      They shut down?

      I mean, I knew the SEGA forums had been in decline for awhile, but dang...

      RIP SEGA forums.

      I've read that this happened a long, long time ago. February.

      And this was just meant to be a migration away from vBulletin to a new forum software. But I don't think forum migrations take this long.

      There's a loooooot of software to load old databases to new ones and it's not like the SEGA forums used anything beyond default posting and strike systems. They didn't have any awards or badges. It really shouldn't take this long. Especially if they decide to go with a paid forum software. I'm partial to Simple Machines, myself.

      Oh yeah, it's been a long while since they did. Not sure if they still plan on making a new forum or not at this point.

      Yeah, Aaron said that migrating to a new forum later on was a possibility, but nothing was confirmed around the time it shut down. I'm guessing they need approval from SEGA at some point or another to carry it on, but haven't gotten any so far.

      @The Deleter Considering the budget for Sonic games nowadays I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have the budget to migrate to a new forum :v

      (btw remember when sega announced a mobile app for the sonic franchise that was supposed to be launched back in 2016?)

    Fan Attitudes to Eggman

    The problem is this franchise's severe inconsistency. Which leads to heavily divided opinions. While I grew up on the classics, I am someone who massively prefers the Adventure series take (which, between the two games, is somewhat inconsistent.) So, I prefer the darker take. However, even in those titles, Eggman has been shown to be goofy. Adventure 1, Eggman is attempting to nuke Station Square (and himself) but he has a playroom on the Egg Carrier (granted that's an easter egg) and Adventure 2, blah blah, gun to Amy's head, but earlier in the game, he's scratching his ass while watching the news. I, myself, would prefer a goofy, but still highly competent Eggman. One that can be dangerous -- very, very dangerous. But still with a lovable charm. Maybe play up some dark humor here and there when he's really pushing out competent plans. That's what I'd prefer. The real issues, right now, I feel like we've reached a point in the series where Eggman is practically a non-issue as far as the threat he poses to Sonic. It feels like he can't win. Not just doesn't, but he can't (that was more true with Sonic Colors, where Sonic could have gone home after the first boss fight and the rest would have worked itself out.) Which makes "adventures" feel like pointless messes. The guy has an empty villain credit bank account. He's no threat, he cannot stop Sonic, he cannot stop anyone. He gets trashed talked and they're proven right. His reputation, among a lot of fans, is pretty low, too. Feels like Bowser, who is also goofy (arguably goofier) feels like he gets more respect from the Mario fans than Eggman gets from the Sonic one. It's crazy. I feel like if Eggman got more victories, actual victories, that actually have an impact, it'd help a lot. Whether he's goofy, menacing or somewhere in between, victories would help. And actually let his friggin' inventions do something. Sheesh. You ever noticed almost all his big doomsday machines he makes get cut down before they can even do something substantial? Death Egg, most it did was woke up a volcano. Egg Carrier, clipped the Tornado's wing. Wee? Eclipse Cannon. Well, hey, that blew up part of the moon! That's cool! That whole scene was pretty badass! Wait, that was his grandfather's? Crap. Egg Fleet. They... floated. Egg Carrier of 06. It apparently could level a city. But we didn't see it do that. The beggining cannon thing in Unleashed made the planet split apart. Which was a REALLY awesome scene. But uh... no one cared. The hyper-go-on energy from the Wisps was apparently able to take over minds, but two full tanks of the stuff lasted, barely, a minute on Tails. That's... not effective. Two tanks lasting a whopping one minute on one guy? And he's supposed to blast the whole planet with that? Makes the Colors one seem even more pointless -- I mean, yeah, sucks for the poor cute aliens, but he ain't gonna take over anything with that pitiful source of mind control juice. Lost Worlds had the "suck energy from the planet" thing. It didn't really do much but apparently make the Zeti stronger? But they were all beat anyway? I dunno. Can't tell you much about Forces. But there's a trend of introducing big, awesome things and it falling flat.

  13. I find the in-game Elder Scrolls religions very, very confusing. It's so hard to keep up with who believes in what. And apparently they're pulling a Rome by having "It's the same gods, but different names" thing.

    How Would You Feel About a Future-Setting Zelda Title?

    I'm not necessarily sure that's true. A lot of future setting games do have exploration still as a focal point -- granted, that often comes with space faring games, such as the early Mass Effect titles. Still, you're right that technology often equates to steadier, more healthy civilizations. People live longer, populations get bigger. Zelda, however, is an interesting case because there are so many races and magic certainly exists, along with gods that act (they did basically choose to destroy the world once, leading to Wind Waker.) So, their technology boom may not exactly lead to the same healthy, long lasting society with large populations that so many titles may have. As you said, an apocalypse may be a great way to ensure the population stays low -- whether that be war, magic, divine intervention, or even Ganondorf's rule (such as Samurai Jack). However, there also exists the possibility that technology just wasn't adapted the same way as real life, some society may have found it more useful in harvesting resources, weapons, or infrastructure vs medicine. Tension between races could mean the share of technology didn't cross boundaries. Or maybe just in a magic fueled environment, technology never exactly won outright against magic and a world full of hostile creatures. However, towns and NPCs would have to exist, they do in most games, Hyrule often having large buildings and suggested large populations. Hyrule may look a lot different this time around. I, however, still expect there to be a lot of exploration and alone time even if Hyrule (whether under the Hyrule lineage or Ganondorf's regime) is rocking skyscrapers.
