  1. Should Infinite return to the Sonic series?

    No. He was mediocre at best, and that's being generous. Not only was his backstory horrible, but I felt that he was just sort of...there just to be there.
  2. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    So basically, the IDW comics are free to do their own thing?
  3. Popular: As a guy who likes variety, I don't like how there are four hedgehogs in the cast. I'd rather there be more diversity in the cast. I understand Amy being a hedgehog, due to being the love interest, but I think Shadow should've been a lowland streaked tenrec. LSTs are hedgehog-like. And Silver should've just stayed a mink like originally intended. This goes for Fan Characters as well. Too many hedgehogs.
  4. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    I agree. The design of sonic characters is so unique that a base design could be made out by a silhouette. Hell, Sonic was more popular than Mickey Mouse at one point. But I am looking forward to some great storytelling and world building (especially world building).
  5. I think the Archie comics, when Flynn was writing, treated the characters better than SEGA ever will.
  6. Character species choice: Obscure or Well known

    Thank you, Diogenes and ShroomZed. You both make excellent points about picking a character based on attributes and abilities related to the story and/or environment.
  7. Character species choice: Obscure or Well known

    I have an animal character. Actually, I'm lying. I have like five animal characters I'm creating for a flash animation. I want to be original in my choices by picking obscure animals. I have a Caracal and a Coati in mind for two of the characters, however I'm conflicted on making them well known animals (Jaguars and Foxes) or obscure animals (Caracals and Coatis). I know it's my decision, but it's really hard to decide right now.
  8. Establishing worlds and Consistency

    It seems that Sonic Team and SoJ either don't know what to do with the Sonic franchise, or don't what they're doing, period. Seriously, SoJ and Sonic Team doesn't really get that they have created so many plotholes in this franchise that a million rabbits could burrow in them. SoJ and Sonic Team need to get their act together especially after all the promises they made for Sonic Forces, which was mediocre at best. Do we need a reboot, Sega? Do we need to get new developers, Sonic Team? It is kinda sad when the fans create an established world and consistent plot galaxies ahead of Sega and Sonic Team. Here's my thoughts on what's happening now and what could've happened. Establishing a setting/world: I'm sure that every Sonic fan and their grandmother has heard of Iizuka's "Two Worlds" response when asked about where the games take place. For those who don't know, Iizuka said that there is a human world (Adventure games, ShTH, Unleashed) and an animal world (Generations, Forces, etc.) and the characters some how hop between worlds. Wtf? That only makes things more confusing. Instead of this two worlds thing, they could've said that it takes place on one world where humans and anthros coexist, i.e. Archie comics and Dragonball. Consistency: This franchise is infamous for having inconsistencies in the plot of each game. For example, in one game, Classic Sonic is Modern Sonic's younger self. In the next game, Classic Sonic is a being from another dimension. The problem is that Sonic Team and Sega find ideas, use them for one game, and then abandon them. I know they are focused on gameplay, but people are actually interested in the story behind things.
  9. So, the reason why Infinite became evil...

    My concern is that it always seems that Shadow has some history/connection/ or knowledge of the villain in the plots. Remember Mephiles from 06? Edgy much?
  10. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    This. I don't want to see anything from SATAM, Underground, etc. Just the cast from the Sega games and definitely some comic exclusive characters created by Ian Flynn. I'd also love to see the obscure sonic characters like Fang, Bean, Bark, Mighty, and Ray. Hell, Flynn could even incorporate characters, like Tiara Boobowski, from scrapped games.
  11. Aren't spin dashes/attacks supposed to be for those who can curl into a ball?

    That I was unaware of.
  12. Sonic and Shadow, being hedgehogs, can do it, but it seems that almost every character can do it. I saw one for Tails (whose spin is really odd) and Knuckles. Hell, even Vector, Espio, and Blaze can do it. If there was an armadillo or a pangolin character, I would understand, but a crocodile, a chameleon, a fox, an echidna, and a cat? I think there was one for Cream the rabbit as well. Spin dashes and spin attacks went from a "species that naturally curls into a ball" thing to an "every Sonic character can do it" thing. Aren't Sonic characters supposed to have enhanced physical abilities of their species? Why do a spin for everybody?
  13. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    Looking forward to this. I'd rather they not take up characters from the past (Archie) and just make new characters that we'll love. If they do include the FFs, as others have said, they should be supporting, kinda like the Chaotix in where they do their own thing. Either way, it's gonna be interesting.
  14. Sonic and co. compared with their respective animals

    At least you could still tell he was a rabbit through appearance. When StH 1 and S3&K were first introduced, the only way you could tell their species was through their names/titles.
