  1. Yeah, its terribly overlooked now and many seemed to write it off as "a Smash clone" back when it released. But I recall much younger me having a fun time seeing all the little interactions and such between the actual gameplay. Heck, I remember having just fun running around the map lol.
  2. Agree with many other on here that its not a hindrance, just terribly handled for the longest time. (I wonder if Iizuka even remembers it exists lol.) Something I liked about Sonic Battle on GBA was that the game was pretty chill most of the time, with the world-threatening stuff only happening at the very end. Because of that we got to see characters kind of mill around and go about their daily routines; like Sonic just running around, Tails inventing gadgets, Amy "boxer-cising," Knuckles training with others, Rouge going on missions for the President, etc. etc. Not to mention all the fun character interactions during said chill-period. We got to see characters be more than one dimensional good guys. What a concept! /sarcasm
  3. Probably Lost World. I was pretty hyped for the new gameplay, the return of the more cartoony style, promise of an actual story again, etc. Gameplay was okay, but maybe too easy (its still the only Sonic game I've ever 100 percented.) The overall story really brought down the game for me with its weird writing of the classic characters, the lame new villains, and out-of-nowhere final boss.
  4. Unpopular opinions (maybe): -Sonic 3D Blast is a legit good game. -Sonic comics were more entertaining when they weren't tied down by Sega. -Sonic's english OVA voice is better than Roger Craig Smith. -Eggman's mustache looks better UN-textured. -Sonic Underground is better than Sonic Boom.
  5. I wonder if any behind the scenes of Jim Eggman's final scene will ever surface? (I can imagine him improvising with "Agent Stone" lol)
  6. Anyone else notice a lot of Sonic 4 footage was used for the behind the scenes featurette? Felt kind of odd... (Also the Sonic Forces Eggman image they used in the same featurette was noticeably low-res. Wonder if some of this was a result of the pandemic?)
  7. Something that's been on my mind for awhile is: Why doesn't the TMNT fandom seem to get any negative attention like the Sonic fanbase? Going through the different incarnations we've got: the original comics, '87 cartoon, '90s live action movies, '90s Next Mutation show, 2003 cartoon, 2007 CGI movie, 2012 Nick cartoon, the Michael Bay live-action movies, and currently Rise of the TMNT. (You could also probably count the different comic runs done by Archie and IDW for good measure.) Most if not all have their own devoted sub-fanbases. Some like the darker comics and shows, some like the more light-hearted stuff, others fall more in-between. With all these varying comics/shows/movies differing in designs, tone, writing, etc. why doesn't it seem like the fandom has the kind of problems we Sonic fans so often get accused of? (Like we don't know what we want, we're never happy, etc.) I'd like to know what you guys think!
  8. Yeah, that makes more sense. I didn't catch the number before the 7 in theaters; but the way he's monologuing makes it seem like he hasn't been there that long. Either way, you could sum it up with "he's going loony." (or maybe eating too many of the mushrooms lol)
  9. After all the modern era games from 2010-onward, its nice to see Sonic emote more than "I'm the one-note wisecracker who never takes things seriously!"
  10. Just saw it tonight. Its still kinda surreal that a Sonic movie exists lol. Thought it was great overall! (Waaay better then what Disney's been doing with Star Wars as of late; this coming from a lifelong fan.) Seeing Sonic actually have a personality again was nice; really got tired of the smarmy, cocksure take we've had for awhile. Jim Robotnik was more of an a-hole than I was expecting, but he felt like Eggman should by the end imo. Really hoping we get some sequels!
  11. How perfect is this shot of Jim Carrey? (Its too bad his mustache wasn't real according to a recent interview.)
  12. I swear there used to be info on Wikipedia, Sonic News Network, Sonic Retro, etc. that listed rejected names that SOA were considering before settling on Robotnik. I think one was something like "Mr. Badman." I can't seem to find them anywhere now. Anyone else know what I'm talking about? (Its driving me nuts all the sudden. lol)
  13. It would be cool if they added in Chaos 3 and 5 boss fights since we never saw those forms! Maybe even make a Chaos mini-game where you play as him going on a rampage through Station Square racking up points or something.
  14. I always thought it was neat that in the UK comics Super Sonic was a psychotic, alternate form. There would be desperate times where he was needed, but it would be risky considering his unpredictable nature; and whether or not he would revert back to "regular Sonic." Also in Sonic Underground the Chaos Emeralds actually causing chaos all over Mobius was pretty neat; like with UK Super Sonic there's the unpredictability factor; collecting them means power but also catastrophe.
  15. Okay but, that opening shot of South Island complete with that little piano melody is just pure magic! Honestly I choked up a bit. That shot is what the franchise is all about for me!
