    Austroid got a reaction from BlueSky in Which Archie characters were good , and which were bad ?   
    I always thought Elias Acorn was a neat and likable character.

    Going from a conflicted prince who runs away from his responsibilities, marries and starts a family with a commoner, eventually his wife convinces him to return to Knothole where he stops Sally from marrying Antoine's evil doppelganger, and becomes the new king; often going out on the front lines with the Freedom Fighters. At least his arc made sense compared to his sister's, whom I'll never really get why she's such a fan favorite; she made Sonic's apparent death after #125 about HER for pete's sake...

    You know, I'm so-so exited about this crossover, try no to over-hype it.
    With that said, there something incredibly satisfying about KO's reaction to Sonic. This pure excitement about Sonic, that isn't coming from his fandom or Sega.

    It's just...nice.

    Austroid got a reaction from PC the Hedgehog in Sonic Appears in OK K.O.! (Crossover Episode on August 4th)   
    OK K.O. is such a great show!
    I rarely get interested in modern CN shows, but K.O. is a love letter to gamers, animation lovers, 90s kids, etc. Highly recommend for those who haven't watched it! 
    Also I was probably just hearing things, but Sonic's grunt after he lands reminded me of when you select Super Sonic in SA1. Could it be possible for Mr. Drummond to return even for this one ep?? Probably not, but stranger things have happened...

    Ian Jones-Quartey is a biiiiig Sonic fan. He mourned the loss of Archie Sonic, follows a lot of people associated with Sonic, he worked on the opening to Sonic Mania, and this is not OK KO’s first reference to Sonic, and more. The OK KO crew have also said that they are all Sonic fans, so this is a dream come true for the show.
    You get evidence of all of that and more in just that clip. Like, the pure unadulterated love for Sonic shines through here. This isn’t some corporate crossover, but very clearly a labour of love that SEGA granted.

    Austroid got a reaction from MainJP in Popular and unpopular Sonic opinions you agree and disagree with!   
    I've been watching a lot of AoStH recently, and got me to realize that I actually like Tails as a character for once!

    Don't get me wrong I understand his importance in the franchise's history and all, but something about him in the post Adventure games (as well as most of Sonic X) just never clicked with me. I think that mostly has to do with the "kid-genius" trope that's really all modern Tails is about anymore. With AoStH (and SatAM for that matter) Tails is an eager, good-hearted kid who genuinely wants to be like his hero and do good for others; not gloat about "building a dishwasher with toothpicks" or whatever he said in Lost World. Also his AoStH voice is nothing short of adorable!
    But yeah, AoStH of all things reminded me that I could warm-up to a long-time character lol.

    It made more sense when Tails was just a tinker-er.
    Not a genius, just really good with mechanics.
    Oh nevermind, whenever the writers remember, he still is just an eager kid hero who only happens to be smart with machines.

    It's weird that they didn't namedrop "Eggman" or "Robotnik" when they introduced Carrey; he just kind of shows up... kind of a lame reveal actually.
    It could've gone something like:
    "You're not suggesting who I think your suggesting..."
    "Yes... Dr. Eggman. (or Robotnik) He is the world's leading expert in technology. He has the resources to help us figure out what exactly we're dealing with."

    Thing is I can actually get behind that.
    I mean sure if he is a part of some government agency you may wonder why such a agency would associate with him but maybe he is so good with robotics and drone warfare thus why he is on the payroll.
    It would actually be a great story arc, sure its cliched but what isnt these days?

    You know, there's one moment of that displays the perfect amount of "not giving a shit" in terms of being accurate to the source material. It's here:
    They try to set it up like this big massive reveal, like getting the fans to realise "Oh shit, he's talking about live-action Robotnik". Without specifying the name of the villain, and who they're talking about and who they're dreading asking, it's clear what it's meant to be, especially when it's foreshadowed with a technologically advanced vehicle appearing...
    ...And then the door opens, and it's the most bland, cliched design that looks nothing like Eggman, Robotnik, or whatever. We know who it's supposed to be, because we all knew for months on end this would be played by Jim Carrey, so when we saw him, we knew who it was. But if you went in with no idea who was supposed to be playing Eggman, I have high doubts you'd connect the dots to Game!Eggman in any incarnation if you saw Carrey. You'd figure it out upon seeing the supposed post-credit at the end (which oh look, the best design in the whole trailer is when they bothered to try make it look like the games that have worked for 30 years), but upon that reveal they clearly tried to set up as an epic villain reveal of this iconic bad guy being re-imagined as a live character, it falls on it's face completely.
    As for everything else, that's a whole new story that I'll go over later.
