  1. The only time I can recall any use of them for something other than transforming or powering something in a game is all the way back in Sonic 1. Y'know, the ending where you got all [six] Emeralds and they uh...change the flowers as they disappear. I always liked to think they did something else (maybe freeing the remaining animals Sonic missed, just to wrap things up) but yeah. It'd be interesting to see them explore this more since it was definitely repetitive just doing Super Sonic all the time, lol.
  2. Pretty messed up that the PS5 is too big to be in Smash

  3. They would simply not have to do that. I don't think you've read this topic fairly. People have brought up ways to organically reintroduce these characters, it could literally be as simple as Sonic happening to go to wherever they are, having some adventure, and then leaving at the end. It's not some Herculean task. I also feel like I'm living on another planet or something whenever people argue about any of this because very few people are actually asking for these characters to be added to the games. Hell as far as I know there hasn't been much momentum with the movement that this topic is actually about, and that's adding a single character to a mobile game without strict continuity restrictions.
  4. I sincerely love that it looks like they just ported the model and left it at that (in fact I'm curious if that's literally what they did, lmao). I had always assumed if ol Minecraft Steve made it in they'd fancy him up at least a little but no it's just...him. It's beautiful.
  5. This has been the case since Mania/Forces. Definitely interesting but yeah.
  6. Uhhh, why would he be kidnapping Tails?
  7. Wait, what? After a bit I realized you possibly meant Purah but I was really thrown by this, lol. Also I think the little egg guardian should be playable. You're tiny but going around shooting stupidly powerful lasers. ...Okay, for now I assume that it's role will be what people are speculating: speaking for Link, similar to Proxi in the previous HW. But also I think it should be allowed to kill things.
  8. Even if he went faster and carried her, the next question there is "what now?" GUN almost certainly was guarding any shuttles or whatever and outside of video game logic i.e. Rings there's no guarantee Shadow would be able to get in there and not either get shot himself, or risk Maria getting shot even if he left her temporarily. Here's a possibility: maybe he was already badly injured (and healed while in pod stasis I guess)? There's not really an indication of this aside from the fact he's noticeably not using his speed in any version of the flashbacks we've seen, with Maria even dragging him along in ShTH's version. But it's an idea I guess. (And now I want a version where she's carrying him, lol.)
  9. I thought for sure the 100% epilogue mentions what happened but I guess not. Had no idea the Pinstripe part in particular was only mentioned in JPN stuff, lol.
  10. The only one "meant" to be a protagonist is Sally and that wouldn't be difficult to implement in her first appearance versus later appearances. Like most characters that are introduced in Sonic are more important when they first appear than a few games later, even before the current era of the supporting cast having even less screen time / importance. Sally being (correctly) considered a main protagonist for the most part is, I imagine, half the reason people who hate her feel very strongly about it. So I kinda get it, even though I don't think it would be a concern in the hypothetical scenario she ends up in the games. Reintroduced in the comics, maybe, but you'd have to ask whoever's writing them. Also while it's not as prevalent anymore, the other half of the reason some feel so strongly negative about Sally is that they're Amy (or more accurately most of the time, SonAmy) fans. I assume the SonAmy factor is more of a thing with older fans since that's who I still see it from (lmao), but yeah. Probably the same thing that happened in the comics, which managed to still feature Amy consistently in it's last like, decade. The only things they have in common are "girl" and "Sonic's love interest," and the latter isn't even true in Sally's case anymore. Stop pitting queens against each other
  11. I know that things have changed with how they manage stuff like the comics, but we can tell from the original characters in the comics that they're still not as restrictive of non-game characters. They gave some feedback on Whisper and it was actually a good idea, and then (as far as we know) let Ian do whatever with her. I'm pretty sure the FF would be given the same distinction. We won't know unless something, uh, happens. I actually do think it's completely possible (likely, even) that SEGA will randomly change their minds and let characters from older continuities be added to the comics again, since they randomly change their minds about things all the time. If I'm not wrong we'll find out eventually, whether it's next year or 20 years from now. GET HYPE!
  12. The pilot episode of SatAM had pink Sally, and even a strange design for Nicole (who goes unnamed) that I don't think was used anywhere else? But yeah, it was simply an early design. If the comics and show were made more or less at the same time it's possible they even both agreed to change the design at the same time, but some issues of the comic may have already been done and released? I'm not sure about the timeline of events there.
  13. The reboot already made it so Sonic didn't meet them as kids and literally nobody on the entire planet cared. I don't think anyone would mind seeing him meet them for the first time in a new continuity, except for people that for some reason can't wrap their heads around the idea of new continuities, something that for some reason I only see with Sonic fans. I also don't see why locations associated them would have to be dropped? If SEGA owns them they must own those concepts too. Again though if they just called it something else nobody would care, lol.
  14. It seems more like his brain got scrambled by the warp, resulting in new "memories" replacing his real ones. Functionally not that different from an amnesia kind of plot, but yeah.
  15. It's funny because most of the fucking weirdos anti Ian group I see seem to genuinely believe he hates the FF and he's why they're currently gone, and are probably just going to assume he's lying. It's like a fascinating glimpse into another world. Fortunately they're a ~Movement~ of like...20 people maybe, so it literally doesn't matter, but yeah.
  16. The SatAM characters are really simple. Anything remotely too complex to implement was in the pre-reboot comics...and even then I can't think of much Penders nonsense surrounding them compared to, say, Knuckles--at most there's, what, some weird destiny shit with the Acorn family? Most of the actually stupid baggage with Archie's old continuity was centered on the game characters, or some of the new ones Penders and co. came up with. The most "out there" characters among the FF are Nicole and Bunnie, and they even have something vaguely resembling backstories (a humongous hurdle that among the games' cast only Shadow has crossed), but they're pretty easy to sum up and I don't think the concepts would feel that out of place in a series that has always just done whatever fits that particular game. Anyway that's all to say I do agree I don't really care about alternate continuity characters being added to the games, at least outside of side games. I'd like to see more of that...and ideally not just in mobile games designed to squeeze money out of you.
  17. I kinda like the orange though. It's not the same thing really but it kinda reminds me of how he looks more "gold" rather than simply yellow in SA2.
  18. A new perspective is probably possible, but Colours retrospectives feels weirdly...soon, to me. People never really completely stopped talking about it, which makes sense since it's relevant to recent games, but because of that it's had the same general consensus (a RESOUNDING "it's ok," with the occasional "it single-handedly ruined everything") for...maybe seven years now?

    1. Kuzu


      So just like the reputation Sonic Adventure had ten years ago around this time.

  19. I assume that's just the game getting rid of your mask when you get to a cutscene. Or maybe that specific one, since after it you switch to Crash? edit: I said something about it playing the same sound for when you get hit when Aku Aku disintegrates, but that isn't in that video even though I swear it was in the one I saw the other day. Bad memory I guess lol.
  20. That reminds me, I saw in one video that when Cortex dies enough times a mask naturally spawns in to help you...and it's Aku Aku, hilariously. I remember thinking Uka Uka would replace him in the final game but now what looks like possibly a betrayal might throw a wrench in that so uhhh...if so, what are they gonna do about that?
  21. Some conflict between the villains would be really cool to see. They always kinda hated each other so it makes sense really.
  22. I don't see a significant amount of criticism of Rouge's design. I wouldn't really mind if there was, but it'd be strange to me considering she doesn't look the way her SA2 model does outside of fanart. She's really tame after that/Heroes' outfit.
  23. I can definitely see the argument it might not have actually helped him, but he probably wasn't exactly thinking at the moment and just acting on instinct. The fact that was his instinct says it all of course.
  24. Literally Knuckles' first appearance in this book wasn't on Angel Island. Maybe that was a special case or whatever as an establishment of the character or whatever but I highly doubt it's that restrictive. At worst they can probably use the (implied, and I think mentioned in interviews or whatever) excuse the games have that he'll get involved if his island would be in trouble at some point with whatever is going on. Also it's not like he wasn't by default usually on the island in Archie anyway so what's the difference for those of you who have been reading since then lol One thing I'll say is that this arc in particular is what made me wonder, after about 20 years, if the others even have a way to contact Knuckles long distance...like does he have a phone...I assume Tails usually goes to pick him up like in Heroes but what about when he just shows up seemingly on his own? Does the M.E. warn him? Questions are fun.
