  1. As a long time fan of Hoobastank, I'm pretty excited to have Doug as a part of Sonic Forces, and hope he continues to do more songs in future games, maybe even get the rest of the band involved. Hoobastank is an awesome band, and are grossly underrated, I'm still amazed and glad that they're still together, still making music and touring. Though judging by everyones comments, I can see that I'm in the minority.
  2. - The remaining episodes of Darkwing Duck, would be nice. Not sure why Disney stopped after 2 volumes. - Spider-Man: TAS, how this show has managed to elude a complete series release in the US is beyond me, when Disney has put out the other 90's Marvel shows complete on DVD. You'd think Spider-Man would be a given. - Mighty Ducks: TAS, I'm sure the show hasn't aged well but I loved it when I was a kid, and I'd love to own it and relive it again. - Transformers: Robots in Disguise (2001), my understanding on why this show hasn't gotten a US release is because the show is stuck in licensing limbo. Disney acquired the series when they bought the Fox Kids library from Saban in 2002. Since then Saban has reacquired some of their programming, but 'Car Robots', was not among those shows, and its unknown if whether or not Disney still owns the series. With the massive success of the Bayformers movies you would think Disney would want to capitalize on it by releasing the show on DVD like they did with the Marvel shows in the early 2000's. - Shaman King, I don't care if its a redub (unlikely) or license rescue of the 4Kids dub by DiscoTek. This show needs a complete release on DVD. - TMNT 2K3, Nick stop messing around with those shitty volume releases with 3 random episodes on them. This show deserves better than that. Really wish 4Kids finished their season sets before Nick bought the franchise.
  3. Sonic Colors, I think its bland and boring.
  4. This. The acting is atrocious in both SA games, and Sonic Shuffle, it only got mildly better in Heroes. Its so bad I can't believe anyone was up in arms when 4Kids opted not to use those actors in Sonic X, and got even angrier when Sega later made the X cast the official cast of the games. Think what you want, but the 4Kids cast were far better actors than anyone in the SA cast. Even when the acting was bad it still wasn't nearly as bad as any of those guys. I still think its a shame we lost the 4Kids cast, as they really improved as it went along, and the voices are still the voices I associate with the characters to this very day. I miss them, but at least we still have Mike. The only decent actors out of the SA cast were Ryan Drummond and David Humphrey, and thats become even more apparent to me since I just recently started to replay both games. Everyone else is terrible. The lip sync always bugged me about those games, and theres really no excuse for it when there are other games that came out around that time had much better lip sync. The background music drowning out the dialouge was annoying too. Its been awhile since I played it but, I think Heroes is where they finally improved the lip sync, but I think the music still drowned out the voices.
  5. I can do a pretty spot on Jason Griffith Sonic impression. I can also do both Griffith and David Humphrey Shadow voices. I used to be able to do Dan Green's Knuckles, but these days not so much. I guess I just forgot how to do it lol. But Sonic and Shadow, I never stopped, I do them all the time. Aside from that, when I was younger I used to run with my arms behind me, sometimes I still catch myself doing it. Sometimes I tap my foot, but I just incorporated that myself over time. I enjoy a chilli dog or two every now and then, but thats not to feel like Sonic, I just like them. Though it was Sonic that started it for me.
  6. Just checked and its out of stock. Damn.
  7. We talked about that already. Kids shows that are broadcast on Saturday mornings due to FCC's BS&P are prohibited to show death. Cable networks like CN or Nick are able to get away with a little more though. But broadcast channels like Fox, CW, ABC, NBC or CBS have stricter guidelines to follow. Even with the changes made to those specific events in the dub, unless you're oblivious its still fairly obvious that Maria, Molly, and Cosmo died. Okay, maybe not so much with Molly. It does appear as if she ran away in the English version, I'll give you that. But Cosmo and Maria, theres really no way around it. They're dead and its obvious. But neither of those things make the dub vastly differen't from the Japanese version. Try again.
  8. I had those when I was a kid. Even had a pair of black Sonic sneakers with Sonic doing his classic finger wave pose on the sides. Oddly enough the shoed used the SatAM title logo instead of Sega's. Sadly I haven't the slightest idea where any of these are today. Another cool thing I had was a Sonic gumball container. Sonic was molded in that Sonic 1 pose again, and hid quils actually poped off from the back of his head to get to the gumballs inside. Wish I still had it. I do remember seeing Sonic Valentines Day cards in stores.
  9. Speaking of soundtracks, does anyone know if and where you can still get a copy of the Japanese soundtrack? I'm talking physical disc, not a download. I'm sure its long out of print, and I used to be able to find it on eBay pretty often back when the show was running. These days not so much.
  10. Sad day for us here in the States. How did we go from President Obama to Trump? The very man who started his political career questioning if Obama was truly a US citizen is now the President. I am so disgusted with my country right now. ?
  11. I've seen the majority of the episodes that progress the series forward because I hate filler, and Sonic X has some boring filler episodes. I also skip filler episodes any time I rewatch a series, and the dub is no different. Now to be fair I haven't seen a lot of the Metarex Saga in Japanese, but thats namely because I didn't really like the Metarex Saga, though I did read the comparison threads. I suppose 4Kids did take the censorship a little further than necessary, though I never said Western animation couldn't get dark. But to be fair even 4Kids can get dark, look no further than TMNT 2K3, which is arguably darker than the Nick series. I just don't think the dub is as bad everyone makes it out to be, when the core of the series is intact. I mean lets be honest, Sonic X isn't really a dark series and is very much a kids show. So they removed references to alcohol, removed the sexual inuendos, and sugar coated death. But those things were always going to be removed regardless of what studio was localizing the series, because Sega of America would never deem those things appropriate. As it was things had to go through Sega, thats why 4Kids had to go back and re-edit Tikal's dialouge on the end of Episode 17 after its original broadcast to be closer to the games. My memory may be faulty, but aside from DBZ what else has Funimation marketed towards kids? And even then people complained about the cuts and edits done to DBZ Kai for Nicktoons and The CW4Kids, despite the fact that FUNi was never going to release the broadcast version on DVD anyway. And even then 4Kids was blamed for those edits when it was FUNi that was just following the BS&P of the respective networks. I thought One Piece was the only series 4Kids had their license revoked. Which they never should have had in the first place.
  12. lol That wasn't a jab at you. I just meant that thats where I see most people place it.
  13. I'm curious. Really, how are the Japanese and English versions so vastly different from each other?
  14. Eh, I've always felt the complaints and changes to the dub were highly exaggerated. Which is a shame because I feel Sonic X a long with Shaman King are hands down 4Kids' best dubs. The changes and cuts 4Kids made are minor at best and are typical standards for Saturday morning programming. None of it drastically alters the story of the show to the point where the Japanese version and the dub are polar opposites of each other like so many fans like to claim. The biggest and most obvious change is the soundtrack, and while the Japanese soundtrack is better, I never found the 4Kids soundtrack to be terrible or unfitting, again highly exaggerated. The only negative thing I have to say about it is, the soundtrack never stops to take a breather. Otherwise both shows are exactly the same no matter what language you watch it in. Oh and I think "Gotta Go Fast" is way cooler than "Sonic Drive". The phrase "Gotta Go Fast", is still used officially and by the fanbase 14 yrs later.
  15. As someone who sucked at Sonic Spinball, this would make me very upset. I like the throwback, but if its the only way to collect the Chaos Emeralds count me out.
  16. Hell yeah, its not even a contest. Still, I realize we're in the minority for some reason.
  17. Oh I can tell they're new, I just wish it was based more on the Sonic 3 model. Not a deal breaker either way though.
  18. Am I the only one who wishes they'd use the Sonic's sprites from Sonic 3? I've always felt Sonic's model looked better there than the flat looking one used in 1, 2, and CD.
  19. I'm excited for this, Really I am. But when is Beast Wars gonna get some love? That's what I wanna know.
  20. Finally an event for the East coast fans, will definitely try to go this. I wonder if any of the 4Kids cast will show up. I'd say Mike's a definite yes, he even listed himself as "Maybe" on the guest list.
  21. Actually, Sony doesn't make any money off the franchise other than box office intake, and of course home video release. Sony relinquished their TV rights, and merchandising rights back to Marvel. In exchange Marvel forfeited their involvement in the films and their cut of the box office when they renegotiated their contract after Disney bought Marvel out. Probably wasn't the smartest decision Sony could've made since at this rate Disney's probably making more money off the merchandise than Sony is at the box office.
  22. Aside from kids and fans, does anyone actually take the Power Rangers brand seriously? Only time I ever hear someone my age talk about Power Rangers its usually within the subject of shows they watched as kids, how bad it was and they don't how they ever watched it. I sense a bomb on our hands here.
  23. I know it would be different to the comics by having multiple Spidermen at the same time, but the films really shouldn't be 100% the same as the comics. Sure, take some key notes from them, but use the pieces that were there before to create something new out of it. The more people you have running around with Spider powers the less unique they are to Spidey himself. As it is there are to many characters in the Marvel universe with the same or similar powers to Spidey. Do we call both of Peter and Miles, Spider-Man in Sony's universe then? You'll piss off fans if you have Miles take on the Scarlett Spider identity, and you'll piss off fans even more if it isn't Ben Reilly, Kaine, or even Joe Wade under Scarlett's mask.
  24. Also the trailers are terrible and are very misleading. The lines "We have you on video surveillance", "NOTHING is what I thought it was", "We can change EVERYTHING", are NOT in the film AT ALL. The trailer makes it look like Electro, Green Goblin, and Rhino are there to fuck shit up, while in the actual film it was just Electro and Green Goblin, with Rhino not even in the story at all (but shoehorned in with no plot relevance). I don't know if it's fair to say Electro's motivation is weak when you put yourself in the mindset of a deranged individual.
