    Tornado got a reaction from Redemption in Sega recasting voice actors for main characters(Sonic, Tails Amy etc)

    I'll add on to this:
    There's a difference between something like ResetEra spending days combing through your entire online history to see if you associate with someone they don't like so they can get the rest of their echo chamber frothing at the mouth to boycott anything you've ever done (or, as is equally common nowadays, someone on the right using the gullibility of those people to get someone on the left cancelled); and using your platform as a person some people recognize to spout idiotic conspiracy theories that have directly contributed to the idiot hive mind that is Trump supporters which have caused hundreds of thousands of people to die unnecessarily.

    Yeah we're not doing this. Armed terrorists attacked the US Capitol building at the behest of the president of the United States. Get these stupid bullshit Sonic comparisons off this forum.

    Tornado got a reaction from Syntax Speedway in Why is there a stigma against the Sonic community   
    Because half the time Sonic fans are more interested in getting a W in their personal slapfights with other Sonic fans then they are in if there are actually Sonic games to play for people outside the fandom to enjoy. It's the same reason that the Transformers fanbase was similarly looked at.

    Tornado got a reaction from Polkadi~☆ in What if Saban Entertainment dubbed Sonic X?   
    I can't think of any context where the end result wouldn't have been even worse than what we ended up with. The Digimon dub (at least Adventure 01's) was well-received and still is well-received because a handful of people were specifically dedicated to making it as good as they could and constantly fought to keep the show from being butchered for the US market like Fox wanted. The fact that Saban was involved is almost immaterial. For evidence of what happened when those people stopped fighting so hard to keep the quality up, you need only look at Adventure 02's dub when many of the creative people involved with 01's left.
     
     
    Then also consider that Sonic X is pretty shit even in Japanese, and that a not-irrelevant portion of the changes to the show were done before 4Kids even got it, and that while the voice direction was frequently terrible and some of the casting decisions were atrocious (Griffith, Green), they did very much get some of the roles right (Ortiz and Pollock) and got some people who weren't just randos out of their usual stable of talent and could do their roles even with crappy direction and poor scripts.

    Tornado got a reaction from Mr Silvia in Sonic 1 Prototype   
    I'mma tell you all a story. I've been in this community since 2003, and while I've never been part of the Retro set I've followed Retro since way back when Wai still regularly posted on it and had his name on the site title. And this release today:
     
    Is the biggest one since that Sonic 2 Beta. So hopeless was the chance of ever seeing this one that I remember a couple huge hoaxes that centered around someone digging it out of their attic or whatever and faking some screenshots for the lulz. So many blurry screenshots, vague descriptions of level layouts and off-screen camera recordings of level snippets dug up over the past two decades almost. Sparkling Zone, Clock ORK Zone, the Marble Zone UFOs, the crazy Labyrinth background art, the physics ball at Green Hill.
    https://www.sonicstadium.org/2021/01/sonic-1-prototype-now-available-to-play-for-the-first-time/
    It's all here, and all able to be checked out by the community for the first time. I was honestly nearly shaking when I saw Tracker start posting about it on Twitter.
