    It also goes without saying, but I cannot recommend Ultima enough for the Data bosses. It's easily the best keyblade due to it's form allowing for faster blocks.

    Also, King's Flare is surprisingly effective as well. Not only does it give you the exact same heal a Curaga would've done for the same cost of all your MP, but it will easily allow you to skip through Desperation Attacks. It carried me through Saix's fight.

    I also recommend loading up on defense and MP hastes. Defense so you can survive some nasty combos without relying on second chance, and mp haste/hastega to get mp back much faster.

    Isn't it a little much to damn the entire DLC line up because they showed off DLC character that didn't interest you?

    Idk it's just one character vs the total 11 DLC fighters were getting, yeah I get being disappointed damn. I'm just happy to play a new character in general soon 

     

    I'm not damning the entire new line up....I'm just more cautious and less excited. I feel like they can easily pull something like this again. Every previous choice feels like it has a reason to be here.....I can't see the reason for this. It even seems like the man himself knew this would disappoint with what he said before revealing it. Could easily be a coincidence, but damn it's fishy. I'm sure we'll get exciting stuff, but now we're susceptible to blandness as well.

     


  3. Honestly this announcement has me less excited for the 6 characters lined up for Fighter pass 2. If they would choose something like this, it makes it likely we may get another disappointing unnecessary pick. I mean I can understand the previous 4 picks and why, but I just can't wrap myself around this one. This feels like a base game character more than a DLC pick. Fire Emblem already has massive representation. I just can't feel the significance here like any of the previous choices whether I liked them or not.

    I would say again, those games came out over a decade ago. But even more so than that, to be blunt some characters in sonic just aren't meant to be that complicated. If you want more content for more other folks, that's a fine argument to make. Advocate for the characters you enjoy, I sure as hell do. But arguing shadow has been fleshed out seems pointless because he was built to be that way. A lot of the characters from that era are. There are some characters are just built for that. Like I don't think they need fleshing out. But if you want to see weird stories with your characters where they do weird stuff then , yeah sure that's your prerogative.

    I just don't think that you should hold everyone to a shadow standard, if everyone was like that. The book would be come over burdered with lore and kinda boring like its predecessor. If you want more content, cool, I just don't think everyone needs to be fleshed out.

    What characters do you think need tuning up

    I think that's a bit of a cop out there. We should be trying to make more characters fleshed out. I'm not saying everyone has to have as much of a backstory as Shadow, but so many characters either are bland, have barely anything worth of note about them, or just plain suck. They need more to them. Shadow doesn't need any solo stories because he's strong enough as is. If we don't help those who need it, we just end up with a bunch of half baked characters and a few good ones.

    As I said above I don't think everyone needs to have that much information, but I don't think having only a few characters in a comic series really have anything worth of depth is a good idea either. We should aim to give more to those in need, not build on a foundation that is already strong as is.

    Blaze definitely who we barely know jack shit about her world and her princess title barely means anything, so we should do something about that for instance. Rouge is someone who we don't know much about but has had all the potential ideas to flesh out beyond sometimes steals shit and vaguely may do an agent thing once in a while. Starline obviously with being a new character/villain we don't know much about. Amy and Tails fall into the same helps because they like Sonic, and really don't have any personal self desires and drives that aren't Sonic. The Deadly Six who I hate very much but if they could make them good, they'd be a good rogues gallery addition instead of a shit one. Rough n Tumble for the same reason as Starline as well as strengthening the rogues gallery. The Chaotix keep being used surprisingly in the comic so far and none of them outside of maybe Vector really isn't all the interesting or fleshed out. Though that's the top off my head.

    I mean i get you, we needed blazes's entire world explored like over a decade ago. I would have liked more on this new world before the zombies happen. I get your angle, I get your vibe.

    On the other hand. The last time shadow's anything was explored was in 2006. That is 14 years ago. if that was a person they would be in highschool. Even the comics are getting up there in age. The idea that he's just getting a steady stream of meaningful content , the idea that any character is getting a steady stream of meaningful content seems...disingenuous to me. This doesn't even consider say someone who's first non game experience with sonic are these books or someone young enough to not have previously experienced either. I get it more things in sonic should be explored. But the idea that other's have had this stream of meaningful content is flawed to say the least. Though I get the feeling both of us would be happier if game representation was better.

    I would agree. We really don't know much about her world at all despite having a game centered in it. She makes sense to me.

    Which even despite that, you can write a crap ton of who and what Shadow is from just what he has had. You can and people have written essays about him.Try doing the same with like Cream the Rabbit or her mother, any of the Chaotix, Mighty and Ray, Rouge,  heck even Big (Meme status has basically resurrected his character from the dead, might as well do something wild with him). Shadow is vastly fleshed out compared to most and some would argue all of the other characters. Sure the last time he was seriously explored in 2006 (Though he did have a side dlc campaign recently), he is still undeniably more fleshed out and stronger as a character than most of the others. I know more about him in his 5 years of game focus, than I do about characters who have appeared over nearly 2 decades. Knuckles is the only one who even can try to claim to be close to him, and I'd say he pales. 

    I'm not saying I don't want him around. He can appear in the main book plenty more. I just think we need to make characters who are bland or hated even, more likable. Heck I make it very clear I despise the Deadly Six, and if they can make me like them in a spin off book. Go for it. I would probably groan and whine because of my bias against them, but if it means they can be actual characters for once...sure go for it.

    I may be a little biased but I feel like that's a weird statement? A lot of these characters been MIA for a hot minute so everyone's kinda starved. Some more than others, but nobody's eating.

    I mean in general Shadow has a huge backstory that's been explored in the games and comics before. More than literally any other character. Instead of building on something that's already got plenty on its plate as is, why not just give this to characters that don't have that same luxury. For instance think of a character in your mind that you think is lacking or bland...that character should be getting the special treatment so they can be better characters. Kinda like how Silver sucked til the comics did something with him. Who needs more to their story to be better? That's what I think should be focused on. I liked how Tangle and Whisper was as they needed a book like that to help establish themselves. Sure they're new characters, but there's plenty of old ones who even after years of games still only have the equivalent of what Tangle and Whisper started with before their book. I think we should be creating more characters who can stand on their own, rather than add onto characters who already can do that and have so.


  7. Congratulations Whisper

     

    Overall got to see it and I liked it. It was friggin nuts how dread and depression was portrayed. Like you get smacked in the face with a brick labelled "SAD" when you see it. I also see depressed Cream memes coming out of this story what with how she looks like someone about to preach how meaningless everything is. Manic Depressed Cream.

    And my Son cried...that's a crime. Too cute to cry dammit XP.

    Oh and the Amy discussion while I'm NOT interested. I will say it would work so much better if we got to hear how a revised script for her in this chapter would sound...to get the point across. Otherwise no one is going to get what this other supposed better Amy is. 


  8. Just wanna say we really should seperate the "Kids movie" and "For all ages" movie category. One for something that clearly won't attract an adults attention, and one which will. Like Star Wars I say is for everyone and appeals to all ages. While something like Barney or Blues Clues is clearly really only made for children and not at all for an adult.

    I'd love to give a full review but I refuse to pay for this travesty of a trilogy after the Last Jedi. Everything I have read and seen in clips online as well as heard talked about over several discussions sounds awful. The only way I'd ever care about this era is if David Filoni got like a television series between TLJ and ROS and could basically do what Clone Wars did for the Prequels.

    The Force Awakens lightsaber battle wasn't that bad, pretty alright even but what the hell happened in Rise of Skywalker? I saw a clip of a full fight and jeez it's like watching a basement fight between children and foam weaponry. Where's the forms? Stances? Proper guards? Counter reposts? Technique?

    Seriously even can't get the basic swing to guard end position right. Instead lightsabers are baseball bats and they randomly decide to reverse grip and swing widely like morons. Who choreographed this and thought it was ok?

    I actually think it's good that theres more than one character talking about it but it being Espio makes it less significant than it would have been if someone closer to him was dou

    WAIT

    WHERE THE KNUCK IS FUCKLES

    He is in a better place in a land in the heavens......Angel Island XP


  10. Yeah it's kinda gets a wet fart of a conclusion. Why even have all those badniks? It felt pointless as they really don't change anything. Could have cut them out and we really wouldn't have lost anything. It all was comfortably handled and didn't really leave much for an interesting conclusion. Nice to see Tails for a bit even if he's basically just a plot device to put mimic away rather than really being a character. Oh well.


  11. Honestly it only feels really long because of all the delays n shit. Because of the schedule being all over the place things take longer and the pace slows and suffers. It's reminding me of webcomics but at least we get full chapters rather than a couple pages or so a week with slow as hell pacing that way.

    I believe you can just keep shuffling and filling in the empty event spot whenever you finish one. That's what I did with the recent Pokemon one, and I got all of em in about 5 or 10 minutes.

    Did that, and sometimes it didn't fill and so it took longer. It's about that long if you can consistently get them in the event spot, and have the materials to reset.
