    Too bad it had to be done this way though.

    A shame that her most important story role recently is basically her being effectively killed off. I would have preferred if she started fighting again like she did when Emerl was getting hurt back in Battle. Still, at least Tails' reaction is satisfying to my inner Taiream shipper, and it looks like he'll do the fighting for her to avenge her. I just wish Cream herself got some action before getting knocked out of the game.

     

    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”.

     

    Like I said before there little chance of this happening but I’m clinging on to this because they already had their one child kill with Charmy and Cream has been through enough damn it.

    Poor Cream. :(

     

    So I know there’s a small chance of this happening but

    maybe they stumble on to the cure and Cream is the first recovery patient. Because there’s no way they would put Cream through watching her two best friends and mother turn into zombots only to become one herself.


     

     

    Right?

    None of the 3D Sonic games hold up.

    Sonic games should stick to 2D only as 3D either doesn’t work at all or ages badly for Sonic.

     

    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. 


  4. 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.

    Be the better person and keep being open minded in spite of that.

    Have a backbone of course, but people being close minded says a lot about them than it does you.

    I was open minded in 2008 and yet a decade later I’m still hearing the same crap of 3D was a mistake, Sonic is the only character we can care about, we need to go back to Sonic’s roots even though we were just there 5 minutes ago.

    I was willing to give TSR a chance on the possibility it would be on par with the first two Rider games (it was middle of the road for me). I was optimistic about boom where I can care about the plot and characters again until production issues cause what could have been an intriguing subdivision to be discarded on the cutting room floor (Look up Sonic Synergy).  But please explain to me what you consider to be “open minded” because I feel that we have conflicting views on what that means.

    I would say your best bet is just say "fuck them" and like what you want to like, but also be open minded as well.

     

    Especially since nobody here is (hopefully) insulting you over your preferences.

    Just because no one here has been a douchebag about it here that doesn’t change that I’ve seen people outside of SSMB acting like obnoxious jerks towards the adventure games and I’m done being open mined to people who want to discard everything I like about Sonic. I was open minded with Unleashed and that’s never happening again when people can’t put out a review of a Sonic game without moaning how 06 ruined their lives.


  7. 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. 
     


  8. 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.

    I'd say parts of this fanbase have developed an unhealthy hoarding mentality, where everything's got to be saved because surely it'll be good and useful eventually.

    Sometimes it's ok to get rid of things. Sometimes you need to get rid of things. And it's not just "classic pandering" to try to tell a story in a different way.

    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.


  10. 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.

    Oh did he? 

    About three minutes in, he states he likes the overdrive shorts that promoted the games and he feels that the style of the shorts with no dialouge and cartoony humor(i.e. Shadow being a douche to a Chao) should carryover to the games as well. 
     

    I like those shorts too but I like it when the characters can actually converse with each other.


  12. 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.


  13. ^You can tell me all day about how "Sonic pushes sales" and "everyone else is less desirable or not as popular", but the thing is I've heard it all before for over a decade and I have passed the point of giving a damn. I haven't been satisfied with the current direction of the games for a long time, and I'm not going to stay silent about it.

    I wouldn't be here on this forum if I thought the games were fine, but to me they are stagnant, uninteresting and not worth the $40 price tag. One factor of this is when the games stripped down Sonic to the only playable option. Not only did it get boring after experiencing games with the other characters skills and personalities but when they do show up (Generations,Lost World,Forces) it's a severe downgrade from what came before.

    I've became vocal about wanting better for the other characters(i.e. playable) because critics over at IGN aren't going to when they can barely put out a review for a new game without mentioning how 06 ruined their childhood. 

    Again just because Sonic is the main selling point is no excuse for everyone else to be extremely mishandled nor does it mean people shouldn't want them to be better than what we're getting now.

    But yet, you are on a Sonic forum and not a Tails forum.....

    The irony.......

    Might wanna take that "Blue hedgehog" silhouette out of your avatar pic and replace it with characters that "Fuel your desire...."

    1. You’re not the boss of me, I’ll put in an avatar pic when I feel like it.

    2. Just because Sonic’s name is the title of the series does not equate to he’s the only person I’m allowed to care for. 

    3. Also the topic started on how Tails became a spineless doormat in recent years(but that’s true for everyone else) so it’s only natural fans of non-Sonic characters voice their displeasure about the situation.

    Again I don’t hate Sonic, I just hate this bullshit idea he’s the only one I’m allowed to care about.

    Any version of Sonic, is better than any side character.

    Wrong. To you Sonic is better than anyone else. To other fans there are characters who rank higher than him. Hell the blue hedgehog isn’t even in my top 5 favorites of Sonic characters anymore due to the games dumbing down everyone else in order for Sonic can look good in comparison. That doesn’t make like Sonic more, but fuel my desire for the other characters to be active in the plot and be playable again.

    That's fantastic.

    A plausible reason for Knuckles being the leader is that now...he's the closest thing to Sonic the Hedgehog that they have.

    No really, that's an excellent explanation.

    It also shows how they became too dependent on Sonic over the years.

    I wish more folks were talking about the tangle and whisper stuff, seems neat enough to note. But not a lot of the discussion around the net. Seemed cool, but I dunno maybe it just didn't go over for people

    I’m actually interested in her old team and how they operated.
