  1. Does Shadow needs Chaos Emerald?

    Let's just chalk it up to Sonic Team forgetting or making more simple little details. It's obvious within Adventure 2 that you needed a Chaos Emerald to Chaos Control. As Shadow continued to return in the future, he also continued to use Chaos Moves since they were an iconic part of the character. By Sonic Forces, they either forgot or just didn't care to bother making sure Shadow had a Chaos Emerald on him every time he did Chaos Control. I mean, we're talking about developers who now say Sonic lives on another world away from humanity despite what we saw in the series up until 06. We're shouldn't expect to pay attention to what happened before.
  2. Another issue is production costs. Back in the Genesis days, developing a game like Sonic the hedgehog was cheaper than now.
  3. Where is Blaze the Cat?

    Like I said, Blaze has the issue where like Knuckles the premise of her character (princess from another dimension tasked with guarding magic jewels) discourages her showing up despite how much of a fan-favorite she is. You see with Knuckles how they first had the Master Emerald get shattered and that they reused Eggman tricking him into fighting Sonic for the rivalry both have back then, then comes the series by 06 or Rivals where the ME/Angel Island is only hinted at (he even goes on a wild goose chase in Rivals 2). I also said that in the event of a reboot, the makers would need to decide if Blaze/Silver/Knuckles are supposed to be in Sonic's posse as recurring friends of his or fixtures of his world who have their own struggles and enemies. I'm rather fond of the suggestion to make Knuckles more like his OVA version and have Tikal be Angel Island's guardian.
  4. GUN in Forces

    Except that obviously wasn't the intent for the series up until 06. What with the already mentioned Echidnas, Silver living in a future version of Soleanna, Eggman Nega and Silver being from the same future, etc. They're just overcompensating for the backlash against Elise and Gun Commander with their eras just sticking them in another world then ignoring them.
  5. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    Ignoring later games, I support speculation that Rouge was playing both sides. She worked for the UF's government to get cash/jewelry as a reward for investigating Eggman, until she ended up on Ark where she got in with him then she was playing along with him while also getting a taste for the havoc they were wreaking on the world. She didn't just take the Chaos Emeralds and run while Eggman and Shadow were busy since she was waiting to see who came out on top. Team Hero wins she heads back to Earth where she gets her paycheck then heads home, Team Dark wins she pledges an oath of allegiance to Eggman and brushes off her spying as just business. Gerald's revenge threw a wrench into that plan.
  6. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    Like I said, not a GUN member or even reporting to them as opposed to the federal government's current administration. A 3rd Party. It'd go in line with how she had to fight Flying Dog since the garrison on Prison Island wouldn't know about her. Might have been playing both sides too.
  7. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    It's bad dubbing. Watch Windii's sub, Shadow's words show he caught her in the act and called her a spy.
  8. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    And how would Shadow have that found that out when he was sealed away for 50 years and went right to the Ark after being freed? Also, bad dubbing. We had signs of humanity besides Doctor Eggman in the Classic games too (faces in Marble Hill Zone, angel statue in Wacky Workbence, hieroglyphics in Sandoplis).
  9. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    We both know that doesn't work at all with the games from Adventure to 06. Unless you're telling me some Echidnas with Medieval Era techology were capable of dimensional/intergalatic travel, Gerald made his ultimate lifeform a hedgehog just for the laughs, and Silver moved onto another planet in the future. GUN is just an artifact of the Adventure era. An era that Team Iizuka seem to be trying leave behind outside of fanservice. Sonic Unleashed didn't have any sign of GUN and it was obviously a sorta reboot.
  10. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    Same way they can have Sonic live on another planet away from humanity even though the games after the Genesis until 06 have elements in their plots and backstories that depend on humans and anthros being on the same world: By doing what Sonic Team does.
  11. IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

    Within context of just Adventure 2 I'm sure Rouge isn't a member of GUN so much as a third party hired to research Eggman. Later games shifted this to her being a full-blown member. But I'm sure GUN isn't in the canon anymore anyway. We can't have non-Eggman humans don't you know?
  12. Sonic Forces SPOILER Thread

    Team Dark is in an awkard position. They were invented for Sonic Adventure 2's duality/rivalry motif (although, listed pre-release info mentioned that the game would have just had you play as Sonic, Knuckles, and Eggman) and since there was already Team Sonic/Hero there would have to be a Team Dark to counter them. Team Dark came back in Heroes absent Eggman for the team gimmick, Rouge and Omega popped in games after Heroes helping Shadow (if not as a team) up until 06. Shadow's more or a less stand-up hedgehog now who's a friendly (if grumpy) rival at worst, yet apparently Sonic Team and Archie Sonic still insists on having Rouge and Omega follow Shadow around even though they need him to be close to relevant way more than he needs them.
  13. It being fantasy doesn't mean anything goes. Up to that point, we didn't have villains like Mephiles (both edgy and no one he interacts with provides difference). Chaos was Eggman's sidekick until he turned on him, Biolizard was just a final boss. Mephiles just goes total edgelord with nobody to play off of.
