  1. Oh yeah, I saw this over a month ago, but I forgot to post it up, apparently something IS going on with the Scott Fulop case? In other news, something actually related to TLSC: I would have figured that he would have had all of the voice acting done years ago, since he was planning to release years ago, but nothing relating to TLSC makes any sense, so screw it. Now I kinda want to hear the voices he's already got...

    Memorable Sonic Childhood Memories

    My first exposure to Sonic was Sonic Underground. I loved it, and it's probably warped what I desire from the franchise ever since, honestly. Can't remember much about what I liked, other then I liked Manic, the title theme was cool and Knuckles was in the show at one point. I rewatched it last year and it was hilariously terrible... but there are quite a few things I liked. Those songs make want want to die though. I think I was in Kindergarden at the time it was showing? I wondered for years what happened to that show. After it disappeared, Sonic essentially disappeared for me. The next time I remember seeing Sonic was in 2008, it was an advertisement for Unleashed in Official Xbox Magazine. I was just like "wtf, Sonic is still a thing?" Like, I hadn't heard a thing about the franchise in years. Fast forward a few years, and in 2012 was my first proper exposure to a Sonic game. My high school had a plug and play thing with Super Mario Brothers and Sonic 2 loaded on it, and people were screwing around with it at the end of the year. Maybe 5 people total in the room? I remember seeing Emerald Hill zone and Chemical Plant zone for the first time and thinking it was FUCKING LIT, like, it was the coolest platformer I had ever seen. I also remember saying that I thought Tails was female and, er, something about being Sonic's "love interest" and the one guy who knew about Sonic there was really pissed off at my plebeian lack of knowledge about the franchise. The teacher who happened to be there tried to diffuse things peacefully, while the Gangsta dude there simply stated: "Dude, that ain't no fucking Dude." lmao. TLDR: Sonic was never part of childhood, honestly. My childhood was bloody miserable. It's probably a good thing I don't associate Sonic with it. I've only really been looking into the Sonic franchise since 2013. Not sure where I should really have put this, but screw it, I'm venting here today!
  3. Are you fuckin' kidding me? ... Probably not, given everything else here. I take it this is decent evidence that Ken never read anything Ian wrote? Like, anything? The story arc with Tommy's death? Or the fricking nanite city?

    What if Sonic pulled an Infinity War?

    What? I mean, I'm usually down for edgy Sonic, but this seems like a really bad idea. As several people have already mentioned, Archie Sonic did something similar when Geoffery and the 1001 echidnas were banished to the land of Ken Penders with the Super Genesis Wave, and that caused a considerable loss of readership, and drama that lingered for the rest of the Comic's run. And that had a competent writer who knows what the term "Metaverse" means, how the hell are Sonic Team going to pull something like this off? Look at what happened with Sonic Forces, that game is the incarnation of wasted potential. Like, I actually can't imagine this idea going well, at least in the world we live in. Maybe if things were different...
  5. "Is There Any Hope For The Archie Sonic Pre-Reboot Cast?" IMO, No, not until the horrid legal issues surrounding them are settled. And the best case scenario I can imagine for them is if their copyright holders (mainly Ken) were to give up their copyright for really cheap (Like less than $1000 USD for everything ken has,)so that they can sit in waiting until somebody decides to use them for... something? Ian using them in the IDW series is about the only thing ATM I could realistically see them in, and that's with a guarantee of no more legal bullshit. I don't think Sega would even bother starting the process of acquiring the rights anyway, unless something changes in the future. The missing few many are probably better off on Deviant Art ATM anyway. That and for every 1 Geoffrey/Fiona/Shard there are literally dozens of truly useless characters... http://archiesonic.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Characters_introduced_by_Ken_Penders Only 242? I could have sworn there were more Echidnas then that...
  6. At least this art is terrible for different reasons then usual. Christ. Nothing of interest here, honestly. I was looking through Ken's twitter, and a found this link to a Long facebook post by him. EDIT: Sidronas Espio'd me, and my link was fuckin' broken anyway He goes on about Trump, then about the Archie lawsuit. I think he overvalues his IP, (greatly!), and this seems to imply that he thinks a payout is coming, but that's nothing new, unfortunately. I'm wondering though, looking at this, did they offer to buy his IP off of him, but they simply didn't offer him enough money? I vaguely remember something from years ago where somebody asked him how much money he thought it was worth, and he didn't give a precise answer. I seems to remember a vague answer of "a lot". ... I wonder, if Archie and/or Sega were waiting for him to start publishing TLSC, so they could threaten him with a lawsuit of some sort, and buyout his stuff cheaply, while Ken never really planned to do anything with TLSC, and just wanted to prod Archie/Sega into a big buyout faster? That would explain why nothing has happened in the past 5 years! Alternatively, I wonder if Sega of Japan saw the Ken's victory as an excuse to eject western material they hated and used Ken as an easy scapegoat for the heat? SOJ really seems to hate "Mobius" related stuff for whatever reason, from the looks of things. It's a stupid and malicious plan, but it's not like they gave a crap about anybody involved with Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog... or anything, given the state of the franchise. LOL. Seems like it worked perfectly, if that's what they were trying to accomplish. I really hope this one isn't it. Maybe Sega and Archie were just scared off by "some dude in Los Angeles?" It's not like the why matters anymore, this situation is an absolute disaster for everyone involved. Shit, I've been listening to the Deus Ex soundtrack while typing this. I can feel more conspiracies forming right now!!!
  7. I thought of that scene where Naugus possesses Geoff and this is the first thing that came to mind... It's intentionally bad looking, I swear! I don't want to be overtly dickish with this, but I thought it was "perfect" for this moment. On another note, I think we may have seen Geoff more than Lara in all of the previews that Ken's shown us. I'm not going through all of this... "dubious" preview material to check for myself though. Actually, it's quite a pain in the ass to go through all of the preview stuff on his twitter, and since his website is toast... how the hell is he going to market this series?
  8. Holy fucking Jesus this looks fucking terrible. That's unfortunately not a surprise at this point... but man... Is this really the standard for the artwork? It looks fucking scary! Geoffrey looks like the grinch or some shit. The artwork in TLSC is probably going to haunt these characters for the rest of their fictional lives. I know I'll be seeing this shit in my nightmares.
  9. I would NOT want to be paid with exposure for a roll in this project. Now I'm wondering who he's got to do the voice acting... it's probably his family again, isn't it?
  10. Any guesses as to what accent Geoffrey is going to have in this? Shit, any guesses as to if this project is going to be finished before Ken dies from old age? I'm not even joking here, Ken's about... 60? And there's very little evidence of substantial progress on this project after 6 years, I'm genuinely concerned that he will die before anything gets released, and there's no way TLSC will be finished before he dies at this rate.

    Are Sonic media better than the games?

    How exactly are you supposed to compare them, though? On a case by case basis? Even the games are a ridiculous crapshoot in terms of tone and quality, let alone something like old Archie, or the 5 television shows. I mean, I think many of the game stories are utter crap, but some of them are really good, and I would take those in a heartbeat over The Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

    Freedom Fighters' own Series

    I've thought about that, the SATAM finale, how Ben Hurst said that it was going to be Naugus. But why would he reveal one of the main twists of the story, I believe he was trying to get a SATAM movie done until his death. What if those red eyes were supposed to be Jules, or an earlier version of that character? Jules story as presented in Old Archie would fit in nicely with SATAM's backstory IMO. It would also explain why it looks like Metal. As for the original topic... yeah, the basic concept of SATAM could work without Sonic or Robotnik/Eggman specifically. Anthropomorphic animals fighting a lunatic using a machine to turn them into his(or her!) robotic slaves? Sure. But the more you go into the details, the more you have to change things; most importantly Sonic doesn't exist and the Doctor can't be Robotnik/Eggman specifically. You would either need to create a stand in for him or replace him entirely. Still, it could work nicely IMO. SATAM was hardly perfect, and going over everything might be a good way to insure nothing is out of place with what you are creating... creating a consistent tone for the universe from the start would work wonders. Make sure you know what... intensity the story is supposed to be. I would avoid going to either extreme of edgy-ness... but go for it, if that's really the story you want to tell. I really think It inherently leans towards a darker/edgy tone though. It might be a decent idea to use some forgotten characters to help fill in the roster as well. Ian Flynn era Geofferry? A Robian version of Shortfuse? Quality OC'S, even. I honestly think if you made a compelling story about Furry Partisans fighting a dictator trying to Enslave/Murder them, and thought out the Metaverse and general plot before you started, it could work on it's own, with or without Sonic. Hell, I have more faith in literally anyone posting in this topic to create a good story then Sonic Team at this point. Then again, what do I know? I'M CRAZY!!!
  13. Hey, I actually know of a few SATAM based/inspired games- A 2D platformer called "Sonic Nebulous", here's the MOD DB page for it http://www.moddb.com/games/sonic-nebulous That guy was working on a sequel for years, but it appears progress has ground to a halt on that. Still, here a version that's publicly available There are a few MUGEN based brawlers under the name "Sonic Freedom Fighters" that are of... umm... dubious quality. Razor and Zennon covered this game "Sonic SatAM Liberations" Lastly, somebody has indeed been working on SATAM based RPG's here a link to his site- http://knuckleschaotix.net/twisted.htm I found out about this after he entered "Forces of Mobius" into last years SAGE contest. You're going to want to look up that game up for yourself on Youtube.
