  1. Knuckles leading the resistance in Forces was one of the few things that I was ok with because who else should’ve gonna step up after Sonic got captured by Eggman? Tails couldn’t do jack without a Sonic to hold his hand. Amy would’ve gotten flak from the Sally Acorn fandom based on her mixed reception in the IDW comics. While Shadow can work with others as shown with his time with Team Dark his preference to keep to himself would be difficult for those who weren’t already familiar with him.
  2. Based on the 2 recent threads about Amy Rose, I don’t think she’s bland or lacks a personality at least with the comics. And whatever issues people have with Amy that come from the games, that can be easily be the about most of the characters since 2010.
  3. What I'd like to see in a SA remake? I shouldn't have to say this but to be on the safe side, full 3D gameplay. Also rework the cutscenes with better animation and improved dialogue.
  4. Whenever the subject of Amy’s current characterization comes up I have to wonder do people want her to be anything more than that pink girl with the hammer who has a crush on Sonic? I’m actually ok with her in stuff like Heroes and X where her infatuation was more prominent but I do enjoy her portrayal in the IDW comics where she has it under control and has a life outside of chasing Sonic. But people are acting like the crush is completely gone when that isn’t the case. Examples like #2 where she prioritizes getting Sonic to return to the resistance, she briefly views him as if the dude was a shonen anime hero and at the end of #14 where Sonic bridal carries her as they go to investigate one of Eggman’s old bases, not only does to take joy out of it, but it wouldn’t surprise me if she was daydreaming of her wedding day. Amy’s crush being more subdued in favor to flesh out her other characteristics doesn’t make her bland.
  5. Agreed. I have no problem with fans who enjoy Sonic CD, Colors or Mania. My problem comes from condescending fans telling me that I need to stop asking for more engaging plot, more characters playable and that I'm not a real fan because of my lack of interest in playing the classic games and still consider Adventure 2 my favorite Sonic game. Dealt with this in the 06 fallout and I'm still not buying any of that crap.
  6. @Kuzu and @Shadowlax are saying that people use the Deadly Six as a scapegoat for the issues they have with the Modern games, not so differently from how the non-Sonic cast got unfairly blamed by critics for their critiques of the Adventure era. I got my problems with the games since 2010, but blaming the Deadly Six for the overuse of 2D sections, lack of multiple playable characters and blatant attempts appealing to classic nostalgia is nonsensical. My main problem I have about them is how underwhelming they come off in their initial appearance. But in this comic, I have genuine interest in their involvement of the plot.
  7. Yeah I started that thread because I got fed up of big name reviews/videos trash talking what got me into Sonic in the first place. Seeing fans of the adventure era like JebTube and Ruby of Blue get traction is comforting.
  8. As much as I prefer actual 3D games, I’d be open for a 2D style game with modern characters provided the game itself is modern styled like Advance or Rush. As for 3D, Mighty, Ray, hell even Vanilla as long as they’re not a literal duplicate of Sonic or a blank slate.
  9. I know the covers don’t necessarily reflect the story but Cream delivering a verbal beatdown on Eggman would give me life.
  10. Best Case: I get a game that not only returns to what I like about Sonic but also made by people who truly understand why people love the Adventure games. With touch ups that fixes issues like vocals timing so there aren’t any awkward pauses between lines. Worst Case: They make it where it’s a boost fest and the game is done within 3 hours.
  11. Everytime I hear the “we have to get Sonic right first” I have to think it’s pathetic how a company can’t figure out how to nail down a single character gameplay in what is now the 13th year of running that moronic excuse. And if they’re worried about backlash from people who never liked the 3D games in the first place, screw them. Those people are gonna whine about Sonic no matter what they do and they have the Mania sub series to keep them busy. I really want the other characters to return in playable form in the main modern games and I don’t mean a last minute DLC that can be beat in 15 minutes.
  12. But you have to remember that a common trick with comics is to have deceptive covers that don’t reflect the story. There are many examples of covers showing two characters getting married, someone supposedly joining a team or having someone die but the actual story to show that the cover was a huge lie to attract attention to readers. A recent example of this an when Teen Titans had a “traitor” subplot (again) and one issue seemingly gave away who it was, only for the story to say “nope it was actually this person”.
  13. So I know there’s a small chance of this happening but
  14. There was so much bs here and while I could point out why a strongly disagree with everything you I’ll only focus on these two statements The games may have not hold up for you but I still get more out of those games than everything since Colors combined; -story was more interesting- the games had actual 3D gameplay -new stages as opposed to recycling the overused Green Hill Zone -characters actually did more than Sonic do everything. As far as “stick with 2D” crap. Nope. I’m never buying into this defeatist and restrictive mindset. I like Rush and Rush Adventure, but I want an actual 3D game not this wishy washy 2D/3D. 3D gameplay for Sonic isn’t simple I’ll admit but that doesn’t mean that they should flat out not try because I’m sick of the absence of effort in the games. You’re getting sequels to Mania regardless, but there are people who still love the 3D games that came from that time and would like to see actual 3D make a return.
  15. I'd be cool with him as a recurring villain to build up the antagonist roster.
  16. I’m gonna throw my hat into the 2010-now ring game wise. On the animation side Sonic Boom is ok, and the animated shorts that got released recently are pretty good though I wouldn’t want a full 11 min series where everyone is mute. As for the comics, not much I can complain about. Archie was a wild ride that kept my interest even pass the genesis wave retcon andIDW managed to maintain the exictement despite being unrelated to its predecessor.
  17. No I mean Sega Forums before it shut down and revamped itself
  18. Around the time they announced Mania and Forces. There were trolls who just mocked anyone for preferring the adventure style games. It got so bad I left and joined here. I’m sure there are other users here who were on Sega Forums as well so they can confirm it.
  19. I have no open mind for people who not only trash the games I like but also myself for liking those games. If I come across as rigid it’s because I’m done settling for games that aren’t satisfying to me. I did that for Colors and Generations, saw them as disappointments for reasons I’ve stated already, and didn’t bother with Lost World or Forces when those games contain the issues I saw would result in more disappointment over enjoyment.
  20. I’m not abandoning my preferences for people who more or less had it their way for over a decade. I’ve heard all the issues people had with the games for a long time, but if it wasn’t enough for me to switch sides when critics continue to trash 06 why do you think I would do so now. I think the Adventure era games are good I’m not changing that for anyone. And it’s not like I haven’t tried those games. The issues I’ve had with dealing with the games since Colors is that the story is not engaging enough for me to care, the gameplay has gotten to the point to the main campaign can be done within hours after it’s initial release, the characters are severe downgrades from prior installments, and despite giving them the 3D label it’s a huge lie because they cram the game with as many 2D sections as possible because they can’t be bothered to make an actual 3D game. If I want the Modern games to have 3D gameplay, more balanced story telling and multiple playable characters I’ll advocate for those elements because that’s how I like my Sonic games.
  21. The Adventure/Modern games are the different way of telling a story from the classic series. The problem that I noticed is some fans has turned it into, "if it wasn't in the classic games, then it shouldn't exist". I'm ok with this for the Mania style games. But that doesn't mean Modern Sonic need to do the same. I want them to improve the aspects of the games that got me into the series than avoid them like the plague. The only thing I can say the fandom is hoarding it the use of Green Hill Zone in every single game because it's iconic or something like that. Aside from that I don't see it as a hoarding issue, but more of "what do I like about Sonic games". The fandom has grown to the point where some prefer Sonic games where it's a nonstop 2D genesis dreamland where the only thing that matters is the gameplay while other fans desire having games that contains serious storytelling, 3D gameplay various characters(who act more than glorified wallpaper) and and fully voiced dialogue. Honestly if SEGA does this for Sonic it's not a perfect plan but I can only imagine there would be less headaches and animosity than what we're dealing with now.
  22. The series has adopted an unhealthy attitude of “X is bad so let’s throw it out”. It’s a defeatist pathetic way of resolving any issue when it comes to Sonic and it needs to stop. It’s not just the dialogue anything regarding the 3D games, multiplayable characters, serious storytelling, actual 3D gameplay; these are things that got me to give a damn about the series and I want to see those aspect be improved on and not try at all to appease people who want it frozen in the genesis era. I don’t expect the dialogue to be Shakespeare level overnight, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be worked on. To me the scripts had been crap when they care more about making meme humour and turning everyone else to cardboard cutouts who lost their agency as opposed to actual people who have their personal motivations and desires. You want games where everyone acts like they’re in a Tom and Jerry cartoon, Mania and its future follow ups. As for the Modern games, let them talk because I don’t want to lose the few things the games have that separates them from Classic pandering.
  23. So SomecallmeJohnny released a review for Team Sonic Racing and the thing that bugged me is the whole: ”Sonic works best if no one ever talked”. I can understand this for the classic side but for modern, No just no. Bad enough we got people wanting to eliminate anyone who isn’t Sonic or Eggman or what remains of actual 3D gameplay. But this is another step in the lazy route of throwing something out instead of improving those aspects. Yeah the dialogue isn’t great but there’s no reason that it improved on.
