    GentlemanX got a reaction from Snowragnarok in Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game   
    Eggman has been regularly used as a Power character in stuff like Sonic Riders before, there's no reason they couldn't have had him be the Power member of the team and had Chaos or Infinite as the technique character.
    Zavok is in because Sonic Team wanted him in. Honestly, it makes sense. Like with the Wisps since Sonic Colors, Zavok has been around for soon to be six years now, and in that time continues to pop up in stuff like Mario & Sonic, Sonic Forces, etc. He's part of the tertiary cast at this point - maybe not the rest of the Deadly Six but he certainly is, more so than say the Babylon Rouges or Chaos at any rate. It would have been more neat if Egg Pawns could have been saddled with Eggman and Metal Sonic and we had him, Chaos, and Infinite as a non-story other villain team, but the roster was limited to 15 so here we are.
    Also, I like Zavok just fine, so I don't mind him showing up.

    Finally got a chance to see the trailer. I'm going to take a while to decompress it, because surprisingly I didn't out right hate it like I thought I would. It's definitely bad and certainly nothing like Sonic, but there are moments in there I think work, though not enough to salvage it. Still, should give it a more thorough review later to be fair.
    Love the poster of Sonic running up the building by the way. Don't really like the rest of them, but that one is cool.

    GentlemanX reacted to Big Panda in Archie Sonic Main Discussion   
    I realised I still had these hiding away, so I thought I might as well share them (it’s not like I could get in trouble for it, right?)
    Quick backstory: back in 2015, Sonic Super Special Magazine was set to continue with its fourteenth issue, which would have featured content relating to the Worlds Unite crossover, among other things, but it ended up never releasing, and the series as a whole went on what would have been a two year hiatus (it was set to return in early 2017 with a new fourteenth issue, but...yeah).
    However, this cancelled version of issue 14, through what I can only assume to be a technical error of some kind, very briefly saw the light of day, digitally, on the Archie Comics App. I was lucky enough to grab the issue before it was hastily removed. While I no longer have access to it today, I did manage to take screenshots of the bonus pages!

    GentlemanX got a reaction from Wraith in Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)   
    I brought up Chiaotzu because after the 22nd Tenkaichi Budokai he was essentially an accessory to Tenshinhan's character. In his initial arc, Chiaotzu was quirky, got on Krillin's nerves, was dumb, was morally conflicted by what his friend wanted and what his master wanted, and had a somewhat unique move set and design (even if the Dodonpa was mainly there to introduce the connection to Taopaipai).
    After that arc though? He helps Tenshinhan find Dragon Balls, dies doing what Tenshinhan asks him to do, gets hurt off screen to motivate Tenshinhan, dies again to protect Tenshinhan, and worries about Tenshinhan fighting Cell. The closest he gets to being his own character is making the trip down Serpent Road with the others.
    Kale is distinct in that a lot of her actions during the Tournament of Power focus on her learning about and controlling her power, but it all centers around pleasing or keeping Caulifla to herself. I just don't find that interesting for a character that has the potential to become reoccurring, because it connects her too much to Caulifla and limits what she can do.
    Now, if she changes substantially that could work. And if she only appears in this arc and she doesn't get revisited often, then this being her story is fine. But I worry this is their introduction arc and that we can expect to see more of them and this is just her one schtick. I don't need her to be Caulifla's cheerleader/damsel in distress until she gets jealous - that's not interesting to me.
    Again I don't roll my eyes or anything when she's on screen, I just wish she had more agency.

    GentlemanX got a reaction from Mr Silvia in Visiting Tokyo with Arin (Game Grumps) & Jirard The Completionist!   
    I have friends who watch Game Grumps. They brought Arin up actually on Monday, saying he loves Sonic's design and was perplexed why they were changing it for the movie. I know nothing about Game Grumps really, I do watch Completionist episodes if it's a game I want to hear Jirard talk about though. I like his work.
    This video though... there's virtually no content to it and no relevance to TSR. If you're not going to have your guests talk about the game, there's no reason to include them in the video.
    Also, the Tokyo Game Show was last September. Even before the delay, why did it take so long to put this out? This is like early marketing material to try and get people ready for more info, not something for a month and a half from release.

    For whatever reason the new pic makes me think of the cgi Chuck E. Cheese commercials. I think it looks better than the last two leaks actually, but not as good as the Chris Pratt poster.

    I didn't mind this one honestly. Maybe he still looks like this in the actual film? The style guide's head looks a lot bigger though, longer "fur spines" too. And shorter legs without the muscles.
    Gloves? Give him golf gloves. They don't have to be giant poofy things. 
    This design just isn't good. It's not going to make me sick or something, but they could have done a lot better (and looks like they did at one point).

    GentlemanX reacted to Blue Blood in It is Chaos a deeply mutated Chao or just a water based monster?   
    It was definitely mentioned before then; I specifically remember reading it on http://www.theghz.com/ in the days before I had a chance to play any 3D Sonic games for myself in the early 2000s. No idea what their source was, but it was likely one of the strategy guides for the Adventure games or the old Sonic Team website.

    Everyone's going to have their own valid takes on something sensitive like that. I still like the roles I enjoyed him in (Broly, Edward Elric, Tamaki Suoh, etc.), and I can also appreciate that his ability to play those roles aren't representative of him as a person. Not everyone's going to be able to disconnect him from the roles though, and that's a perfectly valid reaction as well.

    GentlemanX got a reaction from Someguy in IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog   
    I'm a big fan of Infinite, so that he's currently barred from the comic is disappointing. As has been said earlier, Omega was once barred from Archie Sonic and was eventually let in, while Eggman Nega has always been banned from this material. My guess is that they haven't decided whether they want Infinite to be a returning character or not yet and aren't comfortable with IDW using him until they have. Or they already made up their mind that they don't want to use Infinite again and are essentially discarding him. I'd hate to see that happen, but who really knows with Sega. I know the social media team used him in a Friday the 13th post a while back.

    Sega determines what IDW can and cannot use. Sega has, for now at least, decided not to allow IDW to use concepts from SatAM. Some day they might, or they might not. That's up to them.

    I'll admit I'd have preferred Infinite, but I like Zavok a lot too so this is fine. I'm glad he's showing up frequently. Better than Orbot, Cubot, or an Egg Pawn.
