  1. I've never liked the Babylon Rogues myself, so I could do without them returning. I wouldn't mind if GUN as a whole didn't come back either, I've never cared for the idea of having a semi-realistic military group in the series. Not to mention that their robot/vehicle designs aren't particularly memorable, atleast in my opinion. Having them in a minor role might be neat, but I really don't want them to be driving part of a story again.

     

    I would like to say Do NOT let Sonic06 decide Silver in your opinion of him!

    Why shouldn't that decide your opinion for him? That's the only main game in the series where he had an important role, unless you count the Sonic Rivals games. I haven't played them in a long time, but I don't remember him being substantially better in those either.


  2. I was introduced into the series through the J.J. Abrams movies, and up until that point I had always assumed that the franchise had aged too much to be enjoyable or would never interest me. Thankfully, I was wrong, and recently I've started to watch the various installments of this groundbreaking franchise.

     

    The Next Generation is by far my favorite, it takes everything that was great about the original and amplifies it. Fantastic effects, memorable characters, and engaging, thought-provoking plots are just a few of the things I adore about the series. Not to mention it's one of the few shows I've watched that actually gets better over time. I've yet to see DS9, Voyager or Enterprise, but I'm sure I would enjoy them all the same.


  3. Look at the reviews for Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 HDs. Critics do not like the boost-free gameplay, and honestly I don't care too much for it either. Of course unleashed was a snooze fest, but that's because boost was abused.

     

    Or, you know, they might have gotten poor reviews because both games have aged badly.


  4. I really hate to see this show go since there are so few good animated shows these days, but it's probably for the best. It was declining in quality throughout the last season, and it's better for it to end on a high note when it's still good than for it to grow to be a franchise zombie like the Simpsons or Family Guy. It had a great run, I know I'll miss it.

    Since Star Wars is already taken, I'm going with the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It is considered to be one of the largest and most ambitious film projects undertaken, with the entire trilogy taking 8 whole years to make, and all three of which were filmed at the same time.

     

    Based on one of the most popular and influential fantasy book series ever made, it was no surprise that the films were just as fantastic. The films have an immense amount of work put into them, for example almost every creature in the movies were unique, and over 48,000 pieces of armor and 1,800 pairs of Hobbit feet were made specifically for the films. Almost everything was filmed on location in New Zealand, and many of the locations that were impossible to build were done with miniature props rather than CGI. Unadjusted for inflation, the movies are also the highest grossing film trilogy worldwide, and the three films together were nominated for 30 different Academy Awards, of which they won 17.

     

    The films have an amazing score, great acting, and there's not much I can say I disliked about them. If you're a fan of the fantasy genre or well-made films in general, you owe it to yourself to see these movies.


  6. I'm interested in seeing how this will turn out, though I'm a bit skeptical about Dory being a more important character this time around. The last time they took a comedy relief character and gave them a major role for a sequel was in Cars 2, and we all know how that one turned out. There are plenty of interesting locations and species from the ocean left to be explored, so I'm confident this might turn out pretty well.

     

    Though really, I think alot of us would have preferred the sequel for a certain other movie with super heroes...


  7. I adored this game when I was younger, and it's honestly a great example for good licensed games in general. So much detail is put into everything and the game carries over the same high-quality humor from the classic episodes. You can really tell that the developers were passionate about what they were making, the game brings over almost every detail and location from Bikini Bottom and converts them perfectly into 3D. The level design is fantastic, there's hours of replay value, the soundtrack is great, and there's nothing I can say I don't like about this game. It's fairly cheap now if you can find a copy, and I would definitely recommend it.


  8. I wouldn't mind new characters as long as they're good. The problem is that not only do we have too many characters currently, but the vast majority of those characters need some pretty major overhauls before they'll be usable, and even the main cast is in need of more character development at that. I'll echo what everyone else is saying in that I wouldn't mind seeing Fang or a few other obscure characters return, provided they're handled well.


  9. I actually prefer the Badniks of Unleashed to Colors. The Egg Fighters combined the imposing and serious nature of the Sonic 06 robots with the more interesting designs and comical nature of the Heroes Egg Fighters, it's really the best of both worlds since they can be either intimidating or whimsical depending on how they are utilized, with the Dark Gaia creatures following the same path. This is something I feel that few other enemies in the series have accomplished, either being strictly serious or strictly whimsical with no middle ground. And like the rest of Unleashed, the enemy designs are very creative and you can tell lots of time went into each individual character.

     

    That being said, the enemy designs of Colors weren't bad by any stretch, and they suited the tone of the game very well and worked perfectly with the Amusement Park environment. But if we're talking about all-around designs, Unleashed gets my vote.


  10. I really don't see how SA2 can be responsible for the aforementioned shitfests. For a start, games don't make games, people do. Shadow wasn't exactly a logical step on from SA2 either; the latter hardly paving the way for guns, alien invasion, a gritty world or a constantly serious atmosphere. Meanwhile '06 takes its inspiration more from Adventure and Shadow than anything else.

    Games certainly don't make games, but they can influence them. After the positive reception of SA2's darker story, I'm sure Sega took that into account when designing games like Shadow. Not in a positive way mind you, but I'm sure after Heroes got mixed reception they decided to revert back to a darker tone.

  11. I don't think Sega does that on purpose and I think The best option is to make a good story, something like SA2.

    Did you forget how Sonic Adventure 2's story was rather shallow and full of plotholes? Because something tells me trying to replicate that isn't a great idea. I'll give it credit since the characterization was very good and easily the highlight of the game, though I'm sure that's not what you were referring to.

    I will refer to the era conflict. Of course I was talking about the SA/SA2 years since Sega started to really care about the tone, the artistic direction and the story...

    Are you implying that Sega didn't care for the art direction and story in the past? The original games are some of the most creative and intricately designed in the series, and Sonic 3's plot is still considered one of the best in the series despite the fact that there isn't even any dialogue to convey it.

    3- Sonic X is bad

    errr no it's not. actually it was a really amusing show but a fanboy's brain cannot conceive such a thing since it's not Sonic 2 so it's automatically bad.

     That's completely subjective, both Sonic fans and Anime fans consider it to be awful. It has horrible animation, abysmal voice acting, and a laughable plot with elements blatantly stolen from several other shows, and this doesn't just happen in the 4Kids version mind you. And I find it pretty interesting how you are using the "Fanboy" strawman argument when it seems to me you're a pretty hardcore fan of everything in the series made prior to 2005.

    4- Sonic was too dark blablabla

    err, when? SA2 is what you consider dark? You are a pretty much sensitive fellow in my opinion. When I think about dark I think about Spawn or Diablo. It's not because it's not baby-friendly that it's dark.

     SA2 wasn't a dark game, but it IS a dark Sonic game. The plot doesn't feel like it belongs in a Sonic game, and SA2 is really to blame for the horrid plots in future games like Shadow and 06.

    2 fandoms, 2 visions. there's no way to get along, then Sega must follow some kind of cycle that periodically pleases Fandom A and Fandom B. As a proud member of Fandom B I think it's our turn to be pleased since it's been like 6 years that Fandom A is happy, that'd just be fair.

    Yes, I'm sure Sega is ready to shell out the cash to cater to a miniscule coalition of people that only liked the Sonic Adventure games and don't care for anything made before them or after them.

  12. My favorite movie? Well, that would be Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

    It takes everything that made the original movie great and kicks it up to the next level. The puppets and animatronics look amazing and have barely aged at all, the film is hilarious from start to finish, and it honestly never gets old for me. Joe Dante knew that he couldn't top the original movie by doing the same thing, so after getting full creative control over the movie from Warner Bros, he took it in an entirely new direction of making it a satire of both the first film and sequels as a whole, while still being a very solid movie in it's own right. The movie doesn't take itself very seriously and in the end is just a blast to watch, and it takes many risks as a film that other movie franchises wouldn't dare, though in the end I'd say most of them paid off pretty well. It's aged a bit, but I'd definitely recommend it.

     

    The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and Shrek come in a close second place for me, but that's another story.
