    BlossomHaze reacted to horridus in The Lara-Su Chronicles and Ken Penders topic - READ PAGE 164, POST 4096   
    Penders is in no position to complain about about this, and frankly I have a very hard time believing he actually says the crap he says online to people in real life. 
    Let's recap Penders precise treatment of Flynn over the years. Penders has slammed Flynn for relying on characters he didn't made, but then gone around and slammed him for not using pre-existing characters more. He's repeatedly denigrated Flynn's run on the book while admitting he hasn't actually read any of it, while at the same time pointedly saying that if he were to ever return to the book he'd simply ignore everything and pick up where he left off. He constantly passively aggressively digs at Flynn on his twitter, often bringing him up out of the blue. When Archie lost the license, he could barely contain his glee at the fact that Flynn and all of Flynn's coworkers lost their jobs- while Flynn thanked his co-workers for their time together, all Penders could do was harp on them for not having a backup plan or some crap, in a rather staggering lack of empathy. Most damningly, he's even gone so far as to accuse Flynn of lifting ideas from him under the most flimsiest pretenses imaginable, and not once has he ever taken back or apologized for doing so. This man has consistently done nothing but spit bile towards Flynn, and while Flynn has consistently said all of zero about Penders as he tries to get on with his life. 
    And you know, let's talk about those 'professionals' Penders professes to have so much 'respect' for. Actually, that's a lie- Penders doesn't really have much respect for anyone else who worked on the comic save for those people willing to enable him. Back when Mobius 25YL was happening, Bollers opined that 25YL was not THE future, but rather A future and one of many. Penders disagreed tremendously with this, and when Bollers brought this opinion to his forums, Penders repeatedly deleted the threads that contained the information while angrily decrying Bollers, and even going so far as accusing the man of trying to undermine him. Likewise, he's wholly dismissed Angelo DeCesare's contributions to the book while trying to claim sole responsibility for the Bunnie/Antoine ship that got started under DeCesare, calling him a small timer and even baselessly calling his work 'Furry Archie' while admitting to having never read any of it. And then of course there's the fact that he happily trash talks Ben Hurst, a dead man with no ability whatsoever to defend himself or talk back. 
    Penders entitlement here in the face of everything last thing he's said and done is staggering, especially because if ANY person dared to treat him as he's treated others we would never hear the end of it. Flynn owes this man nothing- not courtesy, not politeness, and certainly not his attention. ESPECIALLY when, without getting into specifics, Penders own fanboys obnoxiously tag Flynn's name and Penders name in the same posts over and over and over again purely so they can either try and start something or just froth at the mouth over the fact that the franchise passed them by. 
    THis entire display is as pathetic as it is disgusting.

    Aaah, I really liked this issue, but it's already obvious why~! xD
    Silver's personality is hilariously goofy and I love it. The reasoning behind why he's so attached to Whisper is pretty good. I dig it.

    Also, I don't really see Silver's fanboying over Whisper as a "crush;" more like he admires her for being able to do what he... can't (?) on his own? Is that the right way to put it? Anyway, I definitely see them becoming a team, and maybe they'll form that brother-sister relationship that he and Blaze were originally portrayed to have. Oh, and I really like Whisper! I like her bond with the wisps, and I'm curious to see what Ian plans on bringing to the table with her and her situation. Her design is also really nice to look at. Great use of color!

    Anyway, this issue really delivered for me. I've been waiting for this one for a while, and I'm glad it met my expectations! ^^ Excited for more, of course!

    I agree with that. Fandoms literally  these days like to overreach on things just to ship characters.  just cause someone does something epic like blowing a battleship up aka blaze or whisper with silver. A character saying wow that was just amazing wow. You did an amazing job! In no form means that person has a crush. Otherwise us have a crush on every person I've ever played with in overwatch from a good potg

    BlossomHaze reacted to Kazhnuz in Do you aggree with the Two-worlds??   
    Even if 06 isn't great, not everything is to forget in the game. It added ideas like Shadow in GUN (not really Team Dark in GUN though, as Omega is mostly a free agent in this game), the addition of Shadow's inhibitor in the game, and IIRC it was the first game when the writer of Sonic Unleashed worked (and so the start of this more laidback, friendly Sonic that I liked in Unleashed, even if in 06 it wasn't really done). TBH I'm not for "forgetting" bad games. They still have ideas that could be used in a good way in future stories (or even some gameplay idea that well done could work better. I would really love a game that try to take the Lost World gameplay and makes it better)
    And I'm not sure that Rivals is that much better in the scenario department. It's easier to forgive it because its plot is way less serious, but we had things like Eggman Nega not being from another dimension but from the future (yep, let's do it again after having done that with Blaze xD) and the Master Emerald turned into a card in every timeframe, that is really complexe to have with the different game (if you just think of it, it's really confusing. Does that mean that during the plot of Rivals, the "new past" is that the Master Emerald was a card during Sonic 3, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2… ?). Not to mention that the "card" scenario, even if for me that's good enough for a "small game" like that, it wasn't the best exemple of great writing, and was pretty kitch xD

    Channel Awesome should go to hell for the way it treats it's staff?
    Oh the video...
    Eh... NC dropped in quality years ago, whilst this one is a bit better in that it's not full of his unfunny skits, it's... It's just not that great.
    Even the jokes which are funny, they're old, we've made them all before and nothing everybody has come to the same conclusions that he did.
    I'm a bit surprised that he didn't show much of the fight between metal sonic and Sonic, which is why the clip where Sonic yells metal just comes out of nowhere if you watch this review.

    BlossomHaze reacted to Dash Speed in Should modern character like Shadow and Silver should be incorporated into the Classic formula to stay relevant?   
    Okay from what I got so far from this thread through some posters is that they have no imagination and take underestimate Shadow and Silver contexts for reasons they don't want them in classic games styles. Aka yall some haters, but these two posters have gained my rebuttal time.
     
    Silver is a kid like Sonic who has alot of heart and need to save the planet from evil without needing a purpose to. Forces displays this. You straight up could make him work as a guy who has a combination of Tails(Naively Innocent and Insecure) and Knuckles flaws(Ignorantly impulsive, responsible) but have him more a do gooder obsessed with making things right based on a small hint of how the future screwed him up, he goes to the present any time to fix things to near mundane levels(saving cats from trees, standing up to bullies, making sonic bored with helping clean Knuckles island), basically fixing everything out of a near ocd level but screwing up with cartoony results which leaves to confrontation with either sonic, knuckles or shadow, and after the fight he learns he's wrong and tries to earnestly get his mind right and fix the problems he thought he fixed.  
    Not every Silver appearance needs him to bring the future when he shows up in the games. Just like Shadow doesn't need GUN. Silver and Shadow work as counterparts to Sonic from his apperance to his own own heroic methods, classic sonic should be easily a great way to abstract them from their mature based tones, Shadow(to me) for one thing is basically Bass and Vegeta meets mewtwo and Judge Dredd, you could mix those concept into a childish abridged version for the character, and it would be true to his core. Shadow at his truest sense is everything Sonic isn't and is hinted in trying not to be since their both cocky and fearless, you can make him be the thing Sonic has to fight to prove theirs a better way without it being too serious. Shadow can serve humor as a character who's a comical serious foil since he's a mean and serious but a major egotistical kill joy. Silver I already covered in the first post.
    Your making assumptions the two characters can't be a big factor in having the same tones in gameplay and lighthearted shifts. Archie comics proves you can make Shadow light hearted and be as eccentric as the other characters. You're just imposing standards on a couple of characters who's story heavy arcs and involvements in modern Sonic games, you can't see them implemented as considerably as the others since after all they aren't used hardly by the programmers who still focus on trying to get sonic right, I think people like you is the reason they have as much controversy in just existing in a game because they never get the chance to be experimented in trying to create a standard where they work in any adaptable way. 
    Shadow is more than just a brooding edgy anime sterotype, he has expressed more emotions than just his no nonsense attitude. Shadow(in some games) is less brooding but more serious, composed, and very very arrogant, in many ways he's Sonic mirror image in every way distorted and turned upside down. That smugness and the lack of disconnect around his friends, allies, and enemies tell this character is a total badass to people since he runs on his own rules and is barely alarmed by trival matters not related to his own priorites and sense of involvement. He's always calm and confident about anything he goes through. He's intimidating, smug and sometimes witty, mature and well mannered, and basically only angry when he's been triggered by fools that think their better than him at something. His brooding loner look is his only default personality now because he's always made to be a tragic anti hero(Shth, Sonic X, archie), not a badass anti hero(S06, Sonic and the Dark Brotherhood, Sonic Forces). He's also compassionate, and self sacraficing to people who he warms up to giving him a side that tells more about how heroic he is than his dark and edgy tude. Theres more to Shadow than yo're giving him credit for and if he's in a classic game, he would probably be closer to his upbeat dark sonic side(the one I'm explaining in this paragraph) than his elborated edgy side in current games.
    And so that makes it okay not to try to make Shadow, Silver and Blaze fit in a game, if they have gameplay thats superb based on their playstyles and they're fun to play should be the first priority after all, what does it matter if they don't fit in the plot on a story level?
     
    They fit the mold if someone gives them a chance to and makes them true to their core at a abstract level with Shadow being Dark Twin Rival Sonic and Silver being Future Hero in Training Sonic. There, their backstories can take a back seat to their integration in a game where their fun to play as, and as both of them being the concept of being a Time Placed Sonic counterpart, they all have the basis to work within the premise of stopping Classic Eggman with then their respective ways of setting a status quo to allow Sonic defeat him himself. Power wise, Shadow and Silver just lack Sonic's raw speed and super human physical abilites, they compensate with Shadow being a energy blast mage and Silver a Psychic User that still might not be fast enough to catch sonic with them and has to rely on debris to hurt him.
    And this is stopping Shadow how, Eggman is already a current main aspect of Shadow's character based on his back story. Shadow has his own story that involves Dr Eggman being his ally or foe sometimes, this is what makes Shadow a great foil to Sonic, Shadow at his truest role as an anti hero plays self contained roles that don't interfere with Sonic's established job of stopping Eggman, it would make Shadow a wild card like Bass is from the Megaman games, he could fight Sonic and then Eggman and then based on his ultimate choice end up letting sonic save the day while he accomplishes his own tasks(which could be anything from chaos emerald stuff which he wants to achieve more power, to testing his power against sonic by fighting metal sonic in order to prove himself worthy of being sonic's ultimate rival, or helping the cast get info about eggman's latest plan to owe a favor to sonic and the gang). Silver is really basic, you'd have to be a fool not to see how he can't be easily integrated and still keep his character. 
    Because you say they aren't compatible, doesn't mean they aren't if you just make them more or less sonic characters with their own agendas like Knuckles. Shadow is Sonic's arch rival, and he goes from being a darker more noble pragmatic hero to a plain competitive adversary to Sonic just for the hell of it depending on the game. Shadow could be a rival to sonic and a type hero that is more selfish and violent than sonic, Just extend Shadow's rival traits to wanting to beat anyone who stands a chance against Sonic so that he can beat Sonic to prove his title as "Ultimate Lifeform", it's that simple. Silver travels through time to help Sonic just to help Sonic, and I already explained his role outside of future fixing problem, he could be more a fit in than Shadow, he's the screw up hero  that no one takes seriously even more than Knuckles and his rookie and dorky personality makes him more a lighthearted fit in a cast a kooky animals, he can be used when Silver goes from the future to the past in order to do good deeds, not only for the sake of justice and doing right, but to prove himself to gain respect/acknowledgement from being ridiculed or picked on for being a rookie hero, just like Spider-Man or Naruto. These are good traits to put for Silver and Sahdow in both modern and classic scenarios.
    What would change if their basically incompatible from how they once were in their first debut. Shadow is not evil and vengeful anymore, but he's still the most aggressive and brutal sonic character in the series on the good side and he still views Sonic beneath him or a worthy rival. Silver is not a wannabe knight templar and has low self esteem, but now he's more on the side of being one of a sonic's best buddies and fighting friends with Sonic, plus he's a dorky, akward, inexperienced hero that tries his best but still needs to learn how to do things right.
    Thats not a big deal to implement into the classic, Shadow would be classic Sonic's Bass with his goals more self centered and intense than Sonic's. Silver in Classic would be the Naruto/Spider-Man/Deku underdog of the games from the future obsessed with doing good and getting respect. Guess who's more classic in line with the games. It ain't Shadow. But Shadow would be darker than metal sonic but not to modern extents.

    Shadow's backstory being based on Earth at least can be explained due to him being a creation of Gerald Robotnik - reading between the lines, it seems the professor carried out research in both worlds and used hedgehog DNA from Sonic's world as a template for his ultimate lifeform.

    BlossomHaze reacted to Wraith in Seriously, why are Pontaff still writing for Sonic?   
    I would take defense of their work more seriously if it didn't always come with a jab at other Sonic games rather than defending the game on their own merits. 

    To be honest, that's the only point made 9 times out of 10. That at least they're not edgy or whatever like that even matters when the games don't have the basic plot structure that they used to.

    Finally got around to reading issue 6.

    Let me just say, I kind of saw it coming. A little disappointed that this is what it was building up to. It's possible that SEGA was keeping a leash on the team, but it doesn't really excuse the poor execution of the reveal. I won't stop reading the comics because I still enjoy it, but I do hope that the next issues are better than this one (hoping Silver's introduction goes smoothly, or I will be really unhappy, lol).

    Also, on the subject of SEGA, please let these writers get creative with these characters; I don't like when Sonic characters come off one-dimensional. I get they're cartoon animal people, but still . . . a little fun needs to be had here. x3;

    Ian said that there's more to it than meets the eye in a tweet that was already posted here, and we shouldn't take the ending of 6 at face value.  Also, I think SEGA is being looser here in terms of characters, as it introduces more moral conflicts and the characters are becoming less one dimensional as time goes on. However, it might be a bit before they go into actual character development, because they need to set up more of an actual conflict. They also let Ian rerail characters like Tails and while it isn't perfect, I feel as if it's starting to form into its own thing, sort of like Archie Sonic did. I do imagine it will be much shorter to get to that point, though.
    I doubt it. We'll most likely see him when a milestone issue happens, like issue 15 or 25 or somewhere around that.

    That background is... okay. It's a bit messy and cluttered, but it doesn't look terrible. Far better than using photographs for backgrounds, which I wouldn't mind if they didn't come from stock photos. If he took them himself, cool, but I highly doubt he did (unless he took a huge trip those seven long years to gather material for his book... that was a joke, lol).
