  1. Sure. I mean there is no reason that they should remove the Trophy Girls.
  2. Something like a MCU can only work, if you have many different series with different characters and stories to tell. Sonic can't work as his own CU because you can only pull of characters from one single story, and in this case it is theSonic the Hedgehog series.
  3. Yeah... I also have this feeling for years actually. Sega really seems to do not care about Sonic anymore. It seems they just think that, because he is such a popular character, that fans will buy anything of him, as long as it has his face on it. Which is a horrible attitude of them.
  4. Well... to be fair, this design makes a little bit more sense in terms of Sonic's ability. Especially his feet. No creature on earth can run really fast with such big feet Sonic and his pals have in the games.
  5. A lot of iconic, fictional characters do actually have some outstanding trait that separates them from others and let them stand out. Mickey Mouse is the perfect hero character, Donald Duck hat anger issues and his unique voice, Goofy is clumsy, ALF has a loudmouth, Garfield is lazy, Crash Bandicoot is a bit insane, Wario is greedy and Sonic was considered to be the cool 90s kid oft the bunch. Sonic coolness was kinda one of the reasons (maybe even the main reason) why people liked him so much. He was the cool new kid in school, that got all of the attention from the other kids, while the uncool ones like Mario and DK got ignored for a while. The coolness factor made Sonic who he was back than. He was radical, hip, cool, did ride a skateboard, super fast and did this cool tricks etc. He was pretty much everything that was cool in the 90s crammed into one single character But... the 90s are long over and Sonic Team and Sega knew that, that is the reason why the had to re-design Sonic into Modern Sonic, because the 90s coolness can't really appeal anymore to modern kids of the 2000. Because of that I always wanted to know... is Sonic still considered as "cool"? I personally still find him some how cool in his own unique way, but I kinda have the feeling that he lost his coolness and that could actually be an issue for Sonic. Sonic became so popular because he was cool, he had attitude, he was unlike Mario and the other more the in your face action hero type of character. What do you guys think. Is Sonic still cool in your eyes and do you think he needs this coolness to survive in this day and age?

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Didn't Sega said that Sonic Forces was a success for them? Sure Mario and Crash sold more, but this doesn't mean that Sonic was a flop because it sold less. Maybe with TSR it will be the same thing. Team Sonic Racing will sell okay, but not as good as Crash Team Racing.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Yeah... that was also the reason why I liked the first two All-Star games. Nothing against Sonic's friends, but the other Sega characters made the games so special. With out them, the only thing left is the Team aspect, which we haven't' seen much about it.
  8. I played CTR and I must say it is a really fun and a really well thought out fun racer. Mario Kart is also fun, but for my taste way to luck based. It doesn't matter how good I am at Mario Kart, every single time before I cross the finish line a blue shell or another item will screw me over. CTR was very balanced when it comes to items, same also with DKR.
  9. That art style doesn't looks so bad... but... I personally also have no hopes left for the movie. They almost never talk about it and we still have to see some trailers. This movie will come out next year and we have seen nothing of it.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    TSR will likely be also a successful because the Sonic brand itself will bring people to buy it. The real question is which game will sale more: TSR or CTR?
  11. The Crash games are actually the only fun racers (besides Diddy Kong Racing) who actually had a story modus. Diddy Kong Racing was actually an inspiration for CTS, which is actually kinda nice to see that a pretty small Rare title inspired one big name series like Crash for his racing title.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    The TSR promotional comic was actually okay. Not good, not bad... just okay. I mean, I didn't expected much out of it. Sonic isn't Shakespeare, there for it was acceptable. The premise was simple, the characters had their cheesy one liners. This is Sonic... more or less.

    Pokemon Anime General Discussion

    Please Misty. Don't ruin this for Brock. He could might found a woman that loves him back. Please let this guy be happy for once!
  14. The Komodo Brothers were actually planned o share one kart in the original game, but this ideas was cut because of the limitations of the PS. Maybe this time we can either see both Joe and Moe sharing one kart of separate them.
  15. I wonder if they will add some new characters. Nitrous Oxide is now playable in the remake, but maybe they can add the rest of the original cast like Tawna, Koala Kong, N. Brio, Komodo Moe... and... yeah, that's about it. Only 4 big characters left. Maybe 5 if they will add Spyro as a guest character.
