  1. A “Mania” for the Adventure Series?

    I’d love to see something like this. A refined Adventure era engine would great. Alas , I doubt this will ever surface but never say never. (Whoops , I said it twice )
  2. So recently My Wife and I have been playing through the Sonic games together starting with Sonic 1. Now she’s not really played them in great detail before , in fact hardly at all. We’ve been playing an act each and to my surprise she’s really enjoyed it (apart from calling Sonic various obscenities from time to time out of frustration lol) 

    We are at the end of Sonic 3&K and I’m wondering what games should be next? Not sure how’s she will get on with the 3D Sonics. What  would you guys suggest from the core games?

    1. Red


      Sonic Mania just to round off the classics. Then just go through each main 3D game up to Forces, honestly.

    2. Blacklightning


      Morbidly curious to hear what her reaction to Labyrinth Zone's boss was. That and the final boss guantlet in Sonic 2 are usually the tipping point for most people.

    3. PaulyBFromDa303


      You should definitely show her Dreams Collection. No true Sonic collection is complete without that XD

    4. Eurisko


      @BlacklightningHA! Absolutely agreed. Labrynth boss nearly drove her mad. It really is something else. As for the Sonic 2 finale That level didn't fall on her turn but she DID get Winged Fortress which she really struggled on bless her. That one is quite overwhelming if you don't know what you're doing. One boss she completely walked all over however was the Act 1 sub-boss on Carnival Night , completely destroyed it ,first go no problem lol.

      @RedThat might be a good idea , though not sure if I should introduce Sonic 4. The games that are implicitly off the list are '06 and Black Knight.

      I think it's better to get through Sonic 4 earlier rather than later. It's an OK game but it works best with less context of the classics (because they're obviously better), and doing Mania before it will just blow it outta the water.

      Maybe you could rotate from 3D games to 2D ones for the modern era? That way even through the stranger entries you still have an ok hold on what the series is actually supposed to be.

      SA1 -> Advance 1

      SA2 -> Advance 2

      Heroes -> Advance 3

      Shadow -> Rush

      Unleashed -> Rush Adventure

      Colors -> ...other Colors.


      Lost World


      then Mania can go wherever you want for those last 3 games, unless you really need to introduce Silver so bad that you put the Rivals games in between Rush 2 and Colors.

      I don’t recommend @PaulyBFromDa303‘s suggestion like ever. We want her to stay a fan not quit in horror and disgust lol. 

      And I’m honestly thinking saving Sonic Mania much later. Kinda like saving the best for last kind of thing. Especially since she’s going to need some kind of reward or compensation after playing some of the 3D Sonic games unfortunately.

    7. Eurisko


      @KiahAgreed , Pauly has an acquired taste clearly ;)

      I think I’m going to try SA1 next and see how that goes. We’ve gotta do S3&K Death Egg yet. THAT will be interesting 

    8. PaulyBFromDa303


      In all seriousness yeah sticking with the chronology would make sense

  3. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Fantastic news! Considering the franchise is “Floundering” if you read some of the gaming press. l love the new comics and I’m not a comic fan really but I’m invested. I hope they continue for many many years.
  4. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Ahhhh I didn’t see that. Forbidden Planet have been importing stuff like this for years and I’m glad they do.
  5. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Just came across this SDCC 2018 foil cover for issue 7 up for pre-order. Anyone seen this elsewhere? So this would make this the second foil cover for this issue. https://forbiddenplanet.com/249527-sonic-the-hedgehog-7-foil-cover-sdcc-2018/
  6. Just watched the first episode of Kobra-Kai and I’ve gotta say I was very very surprised how good it was.

  7. Fan Attitudes to Eggman

    That’s a fair point , I hadn’t thought of it like that. Batman has a few sides to him especially. I think the name Eggman has always seemed a little strange to me I think that’s why I have that view on the name.
  8. I was having a conversation with some friends not long ago about how if you were going to a desert Island and you could only take 3 albums with you what would they be? This got me also thinking about the music for Sonic and if I could only take 3 of the soundtracks with me what would I choose? I though it would make a pretty cool discussion on here with you all. What would you guys choose? Mine would have to be: Sonic and the Secret Rings , Sonic Generations and Sonic Mania.
  9. Fan Attitudes to Eggman

    Nah man , I’m not up for a dark super evil Eggman. For a start he’s called EGG-MAN. There’s absolutely nothing menacing about that name ( yes I know his name originally is/was Dr Ivo Robotnik but I’m talking in general terms here) He’s so much more suited to just being exactly how he is. He’s a jolly villain with a slight maniacal twist and I’d have him no other way.
  10. Sweet! The Sonic 24/7 channel is playing Secret Rings. 

  11. If that ends up being the final logo I’ll be very very surprised. Anyway , it’s not the logo that concerns me. I’m eagerly awaiting casting.
  12. Convinced my Wife to finally play some Sonic. Was really awesome to play with her she panics like you wouldn’t believe on Labrynth Zone. She lost 8 lives on the boss but proper made me laugh. So funny.

    1. TheOcelot


      Labrynith. Da stuff of nightmares.


    2. Eurisko


      That’s it exactly. Between that ,water physics and the spikes she lost the plot. 

  13. proper missed not having a new Sonic Comic this week. Never been there at the start of a comic book series before but I’ve definitely got the bug for this one. 

    1. Ernest-Panda


      I’m sure the second printing being out this week at least satisfied the collectors out there.

    2. Eurisko


      Oh without a doubt lol , they’ll be all over that like a rash. 

  14. The more I see of this game the better it looks. I’m still dying to hear if we get the return of the bonus stages in Spyro 1.
  15. Really nice interview with Alex and Aaron.
