  1. That was pretty good. Hearing Drummond voice Sonic again is ... weird. I guess I'm used to RCS's Sonic at this point, but Drummond is no slouch after all these years. I think Emi is a great Tails. I've always thought this, so it's kind of neat to hear that voice along with the official Eggman voice! This one's definitely aimed towards Adventure fans, references and even sound effects. I can dig it. Looking forward to the next one.
  2. Sonic Generations for $1.

    So uh if you were waiting on getting it on PC I guess now's the time

  3. There's plenty of good Sonic-focused content on YouTube. The aforementioned channels TheKazeblade and Em. Bani. both have great content, though uploads are not as frequent these days. Other good channels that aren't solely focused on Sonic, but have great Sonic content, include ShayMay's Sonic Spitball series, the Game Apologist and GameHut, which is run by someone who worked on older Sonic games like Sonic R and 3D Blast; and we all know and love SomeCallMeJohnny. Special shout out to our own @Badnik Mechanic's fantastic channel that covers more obscure corners of Sonic history! If you're into more casual things like streaming, memes or reaction vids, you have Sam Procrastinates (formerly Sam's Procrastination Station), Mr. Pasquale and Premydaremy. It's also worth mentioning that Tails Channel does a lot of news coverage like we do. Hope that helps to get you started!
  4. I noticed we didn't have an article about Sonic 3 AIR, so I went ahead and fixed that.

  6. This SEGA Memories post by @Polkadi~☆ is great, I think we should all give our support by liking it and helping our friend out by making it the one that "wins the day" today. :)

      I think creating a topic so we can all talk about our SEGA memories would be a good idea?

  7. I think it might be fine to use this as a new launching point for such a thread. It provides an easy way to understand the context rather than wading through an old topic, but the moderators or admins are always free to merge them if they feel that's the best choice of action. But as far as positivity is concerned, I'm happy to say that after a not-so-peaceful protest in the city where I work, protests following that night have been without any sort of insurrection or rioting. Though a few protesters were arrested for violating the curfew, it never got violent. https://www.wral.com/some-police-and-protesters-circle-together-during-peaceful-rallies/19124792/ I think that there are more people who want justice and equality for people of color than there are those who are actively against it, at least in my neck of the woods; this is especially encouraging considering North Carolina is considered to be a "Confederate" state (Civil War and all) so it holds promise for a movement of change. I just wish that movement was more urgent.
  8. At the very least, there's been action taken to preserve some articles. @SSF1991 was able to salvage his work and archive it online. He shouldn't have needed to, Tristan should never have shut the site down, but thankfully a valuable chunk of our community history has been saved. If TSSZ does return, I am not confident in Tristan's ability to lead or manage it. He has shown time and again through his actions and demeanor that he is unfit for such a role, and if this whole debacle doesn't prove it, nothing will. I wish the best to all of the staff who were just as shocked at their loss of work. Hopefully they can also archive their articles and features and move forward to better things in the community.
  9. Not looking forward to work today. I work at what's basically the legislative heart of my state, and of course there were riots downtown. I'm sure the building is still there, it's very protected, but in addition to the gloomy atmosphere of one of the main streets being destroyed, there's no doubt the work environment will be politically charged, and that's not something I need right now. 

  10. Tristan cracked. Wow.

  12. Got a new thread right here! I'm personally excited for the sequel. I was probably one of the harshest critics of the first one before it got an overhaul, and I'm happy to see them working on a new one. I hope they put their all into it.
  13. It's actually happening! https://www.sonicstadium.org/2020/05/sonic-the-hedgehog-sequel-is-in-development/ https://variety.com/2020/film/news/sonic-the-hedgehog-sequel-1234619356/ After the huge roller coaster leading up to the first film, it's so surreal to see that a sequel is actually in the works. Tails is certainly a shoe-in, but I wonder if they'll try to rope Knuckles and Amy into the narrative? Do you think Jim Carrey will reprise his role as Eggman? Guess this can be the thread for Sonic the Hedgehog: 2 Fast 2 Foxy!
  14. remember that sonic dimensions rumor a while back?

      They thought of bringing Taxman in for Episode 3, so maybe they're revisting that and making it "3" times the length of either of the past two episodes, and retconning them to being the prolouge for the Real Sonic 4.

       

      heh

      Since when did Sega become Valve?
      At least Sega knows what the number 3 is

  16. You can expect an influx of new fans whenever a major game, a new cartoon or movie is released. The early 2000s saw a pretty major boom of sorts when Sonic showed up on other console platforms and a new TV show started airing. The most recent one, aside from the movie which will undoubtedly result in another major influx in the coming years (especially if a sequel is coming) was the launch of Sonic Boom with new games, a comic and the cartoon itself. Before that, the early 2010s saw a bit of a revival of interest after Sonic Colors, All Stars Racing, Generations and a few mobile games showed that Sonic games could at least be decent again, and a cameo in Wreck-it Ralph helped boost the hype as well.
  17. ...I'm afraid to say that I don't think Sticks was made as an earnest outreach to people with any kind of psychiatric illness. It was all played as a joke. She was just a paranoid conspiracy theorist, and that was the punchline. I would be shocked if SEGA ever greenlit a character with "mental issues" in this day and age; that territory is a bit too dicey for a series like this. Honestly, that's the sort of thing making a fan character could be for. Represent yourself.
  18. In the case for a game like Sonic Adventure 2 (one that has a Chao Garden or any kind of shop, in other words) I think a happy medium would be to offer your final score at the end of a level without a letter grade in the main story or a free play mode, instead offering something like bankable rings/credit depending on how high your score is. Letter rankings would be based off of the same criteria, except would only be present in missions or challenges, like Time Attack or Find the Lost Chao. That way it doesn't necessarily dictate how a player should play through the main campaign, but gives the player a very clear reference point when they're voluntarily challenging themselves.
  19. I wonder if this is how it felt to be outside of the Sonic fandom when Sonic 4 dropped and most of the target audience hated it. I don't really have a stake in the argument since I've never once played a Paper Mario game; in fact, I've never really played a Mario RPG before. Not sure why they've never been able to grab my attention. Maybe I'm not really allowed to give my opinion on this. That said... ...I think this game looks pretty nice. For me it's too soon to tell if the narrative is going to be as intense as the trailer seemed to depict it, but I do think this looks visually stunning and is going to have some funny moments here and there. I'd give it a shot. If my girlfriend is interested in it, I'd play it along with her, basically. I'll be checking this one out, and I'm not terribly concerned if liking it is going to be an unpopular take.
  20. Here's what I've got Sadly most of them don't work half the time. The Genesis and Sonic 2 are refurbished, but all of the other cartridges are pretty unreliable now.
  21. More or less. He officially became the visible head of Sonic Team in 2010 when Sonic 4 and Sonic Colors were being released; while critics lauded those games, plenty of fans hated the lighthearted vibe they went with, and it was pretty easy to put the blame towards Iizuka-san and as the series continued to make weird choices and stick to its guns with the bright and colorful branding and tone, it just reinforced why Iizuka was a "problem" for the series.
  22. Scanning that article, it looks like most of it's fuel is coming from that USA Today article from late April. It's just speculation, though a sequel isn't a far-fetched prediction; this is far from a trustworthy insider prediction, let alone a confirmation. While I'm sure we'll see a Sonic the Hedgehog: 2 Fast 2 Foxy, I'm more inclined to rest on the evidence that it's not in the pipeline quite yet.
  23. The PS5 looks cool and all, but does it have blast processing?

      I know the context, but it looks like Sonic and Eggman are just hanging out, going on a Sunday drive and chilling. "Hey Eggman, watch the big game last night?" "Sonic, look! That's the biggest flock of Flickies I've ever seen!"
