  1. Tenma could not have programmed Atom. He is the kind of man that builds order and control, not the kind of man that builds intelligent chaos.

      I like to think of Tenma as complicated and human enough that against his better judgment he chose to program Atom with all range of emotion and decision-making even if it ever went against Tenma's wishes. If he was truly evil he wouldn't have made Atom the way he was.

      I'm actually arguing he's an incompetent A-Life scientist. There might be some assumption of personality=competence here but in this situation I don't see how it could be otherwise.

  2. I think Flanderisation tends to mean "at the expense of other traits, especially to the point of sole characteristic." and not merely that a trait has gotten stronger, this sounds like it's for the most part, bad news for a main character. But to be honest flanderisation has never been something I quite understand as a definition, like I don't understand the full extent of what it means and when it may be a good thing. But regarding Flanderisation in this negative sense: I think it's a contrivance, the character has to do something, and the writer doesn't know what, the plot has to advance somehow, and the writer doesn't know how, so the character ends up holding the idiot-ball, jerk-ball or whatever it is from that character's archetype, or repitoire of traits. As someone who has tried to write, contrivance seems an almost insermountable problem and is likely the cause of vast majority of writing flaws. Sometimes it seems more like a running gag the writer finds funny which seems to be the case For Ned Flanders himself.

  4. Do you think "Summer of Sonic" could be something like an online "participation" event like, where people would respond to prompts of some sort?

      If we can't be there in person we could be there in spirit.

  5. Don't trust corperations "taking a stand" for anything.

  6. I found it a little disconcerting that the Egg Fighters seemed to have thoughts and emotions.

      I always figured all of Eggman's robots do.

      The Egg Fighters talk. The Egg Pawns get scared and surprised and even swoon.

      The Badniks in Sonic CD get sad expressions in the bad futures.

      From the very beginning, Badniks have been people, not just mindless drones.

      I guess I kinda assumed they were programmed to be "funny"

      But yeah that's disconcerting. Looks like i've been plowing through living creatures the whole time.

      I guess robots can be repaired at least?

      A robot "dying" isn't as cut-and-dry and definitely permanent as it is with organics.

      If one wants to believe that Eggman repairs all his busted bots after a failed scheme, there's at least plausibly room for that interpretation.

      their memories all get uploaded to the cloud where they live on in digital heaven

  7. I feel like closing it is a bit much? What about the other people that run the site? It seemsl ike Tristan pulled a "Guess i'm taking this site with me." which....please don't do that.
  8. Do you think people's ability to write has improved over the years? Why does ancient literature seems so poor? Have tastes just changed? Some of both?

      Also it might be "spicy" me saying classics are poor but I think they are.

    2. KHCast


      Well if the Sonails/Sonadow fanfics are anything to go by, definitely improved

      The more ancient a piece of literature is the further it is from the modern version of the language.

  9. Every now and then I kinda of realise people that worked on "the thing" are among us. Some are active fandom goers and some just get curious once in a while.

  10. "Why are we still here? Just to suffer?" Is a genuinely sad line.

  11. The way Shaggy and Scooby talk in "Scoob!" is just so off, this is hard to explain without watching a load of footage. But they have a certain manner of speech and it got completely lost.

      Does Shaggy even say "Like" in his usual manner? Cause I haven't seen a luck of that or even a "Zoinks" in the trailers.

      From what I can tell, no. And that's a major part of it.

      I havn't watched the movie.

  12. I don't get how some people sit on the car/plane for 4+ hours without feeling trapped. If I'm in it for long-haul you'll bet I'm bringing a tablet, a book and art supplies and i'll still feel dead inside.
