  1. dude, i didnt know you had sonic amino

     

  2. I just thought of something...

    Mike Pollock has provided voices for both Sonic characters and Pokémon characters (the reason being that the english dubs for both Sonic X and Pokémon were both produced by 4Kids at the time.)

    Both Sega and Pokémon have made their respective fanbase angry before by firing beloved voice actors. First, Pokémon USA sold the licencing for the English dub of the anime to another company, and replaced the main voice cast, most notably, Veronica Taylor, which made everyone furious. (Fun Fact: Apparently Veronica Taylor also provided voices for characters in Sonic X. She apparently voiced a character named Galaxina, who was Cosmo's "older sister")

    After that happened, Sega fired Jason Griffith because they wanted a more mature-sounding Sonic. (Fun Fact: Griffith also voiced a ton of the main characters and Pokémon in the anime, most notably Cilan in Best Wishes, Looker, Brawly, who is the leader of the Dewford Gym in Hoenn aka trumpet land, and Sir Aaron from the eighth movie, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. He also voiced Ash's Scraggy and his Goodra.)

    Is this all a coincidence? I don't know. The only reason I posted this is because I was browsing the section for the anime on Bulbapedia.

      That was a long post for something that is not a rant...

      as a fan of Sonic, Pokemon, and One Piece, I've been burned by 4kids either gaining rights to something or losing rights to something in some shape or form 3 different times over the years

      Behind the original VA's backs too...

      yeah

      Veronica Taylor was pissed herself. She wanted to keep her role.

      Two things

      Quote

      "Pokémon USA has decided that it's too expensive to use 4Kids and the actors that have made Pokémon the TV show such a success for the last 10 years. They have 'behind our backs' re-cast the show with 'sound-a-likes' to try to save money. They actually believe the fans don't care. They are starting with the 10 year anniversary special - starring all new voices. The main cast, me included, has taken a lot of pride in the characters we have helped to create. To change now, on the last season, based on greed is a sad example of what big business kids marketing really is.

       

      Please spread the word - maybe some fan buzz can stop this tragedy.

      I want to thank the fans for all of the support. You have really made me feel the work I have done has actually meant something. I have enjoyed making the voices for Brock, James (even Butch!) come to life. It has been a fun ride.

      I do want to clarify a few things based on what I have read around the internet. It’s amazing what power some of you think we voice actors have. Yes I have directed a bunch of cartoons but I have no say to what the content is. We do adaptations. All the director does is try to piece together individual performances and match lip flap. What changes in the story is due to a lot of different factors including the broadcast standards of America compared to Japan.

      Next I would like to address my personal situation. I love doing these voices. I feel very attached to the characters I have helped to create. As for the financial gain, yes it’s a job, but if you only knew the small part of the pie we voice actors get for dubbing you wouldn’t be so quick to judge. When I said PUSA is driven by greed they think they can do it all without the original voice actors and 4kids. We didn’t want more money they wanted to spend less overall and that cut into the talent budget. It’s much more complicated. And yes, PUSA is being greedy. They will learn though, trust me, just try to tune in to Pokemon next season. You may have a hard time finding it on any network.

      Lastly, for those of you who over the last 10 years have corresponded with me you know where I stand with the fans. For those of you who want to speculate on what my motivations are, so be it, you don’t know me or don’t care to find out the truth behind my rant. I am less angry than I am disappointed. It would have been nice to have had a chance to finish the Pokemon legacy. Now it ends on a sour note.

      All I ask is one thing: When you watch the original cast episodes remember that those actors worked hard and loved ‘being’ the characters you grew to know so well. It was much more than a job to all of us.

      Thanks,

      Eric."

      This is sorta irrelevant, but for some reason they are still selling Spiky - Eared Pichu plush brand-new on Amazon for $10. Which is weird considering that HGSS came out 7 years ago.

      Apparently, Mike Pollock has an account on Bulbapedia, but has been inactive since 2012. It makes me wanna go on his profile or whatever and spam Eggman memes on it.  

  3. Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back

    YES, SONIC FORCES MEMES MADE THIS HAPPEN! WE SCREWED OURSELVES OVER, AND NOW THIS CRAPPY BUBSY GAME IS BEING RELEASED. sorry to anyone who's excited for this game
  4. What game are you currently playing?

    I was playing SA2B on my PC earlier and I just played a bit of Colors.
  5. CHARACTER CREATOR? YOU MEAN CUSTOMIZING YOUR OWN CHARACTER? THAT WOULD BE SO OUT OF PLACE IN A SONIC GAME! WE DON'T NEED MORE FANFICS AND OC'S, GOD NO!
  6. LOL Yeah, video games can contradict real life like it's nothing.
  7. It's pretty stupid that people have been waiting for Sonic Adventure 3 since the release of Sonic Adventure 2. I mean, we did get Sonic '06, but that was total crap. People love the Adventure games for a lot of reasons, but there's only one that truly made this game great. And that is... THE CHAO GARDEN! The Chao Garden is a great passtime, but it hasn't returned ever. Maybe Sonic Forces could be our chance? I mean, both SA2 and Sonic Forces have darkish stories, so the Chao Garden could be a good chance to escape from the post-apocalyptic atmosphere. As for the gameplay itself, everything would be the same, except for one thing... HERO AND DARK CHAO! This mechanic will most definitely return, as the game itself was named for the fact that The Forces of Good are fighting the Forces of Evil. However, we run into one problem, that being that all the playable characters are heroes. I don't really know how to fix this, but maybe you guys have an idea? Yeah, the latest games have been a little corny...
  8. Yep. I hope it does for the best.
  9. New Nintendo 2DS XL?!

    In case you haven't heard yet, a few days ago, Nintendo announced the New Nintendo 2DS XL. It is basically a New 3DS XL that lacks 3D. Just like its older brother, the New 2DS XL features the C-Stick and the ZL/ZR buttons. It also has the same Amiibo functionality; All you have to do is put the Amiibo on the touchscreen. Of course, it can also play the New 3DS exclusives, such as Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and the SNES Virtual Console games. One good thing about the New 2DS XL is that it has the clamshell design that is seen on all DS models excluding the 2DS. This is great, as the 2DS' flat, slate design did not look that good, and made the console prone to scratches. The New 2DS XL is set for release on July 28th, the same day as the releases of both Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. It will retail for a suggested retail price of $149.99.
  10. When I first saw the GameXplain vid on this, I was interested! I've never really played Mario and Luigi before, so maybe I could get a kick out of it...
  11. Yeah. I hope it does not end up like Big the Cat did. I mean, this new character looks like a cat...
  12. Yeah, I actually like Roger, but I'm asking that because I know most people hate him.
  13. Yep. I totally agree. Which is worse: Roger Craig Smith or Green Hill music in Forces?
  14. Are you the guy who makes Sonic games in minutes? I love that series!
