    Chris aside, I think Sonic X is otherwise a perfect model for Sonic in terms of tone and world. It's exciting and always with a wonderful sense of humor; the show is aware of how absurd the premise is, but is mature enough to run with it instead of constantly breaking the fourth wall and begging us to laugh.
    It's also not afraid to get real; it's pretty upfront about how anti-authoritarian it is. There are war crimes, homeless people, people with disabilities, etc. It's a relatable world and it's interesting and fun to see the interplay between Sonic & co. with humanity. Makes me wish characters like Topaz or even Sam Speed made their way into the games.
    I have a blast watching this show. And no, not the 4Kids version.

    It's that time of year when wild garlic is growing just about everywhere and I'm heaping it into almost every meal I cook.

    It's not even just a patch to enhance the game on these consoles, it's an outright new release separate from the 2017 one.

    This unrelenting schism of "Classic" vs "Modern" that looms over every discussion of Sonic is so exhausting. The tribalism and constantly tearing the other down, the absolute inability to recognize we're all starving and to ask for better instead of "my corner, my piece, my formula, 3D is a lost cause, Classic is a crutch, fuck the other guy."
    Come on.

    Unleashed is a game wherein the world is broken into pieces and Sonic has to travel the broken, world meeting societies of different cultures and traversing vastly different landscapes to put everything physically back together. You see the world being put back together on the creative, literal world map.
    Forces is a game wherein Sonic has to take back control of the world from Eggman, presented on a map as a single landmass and one island. Eggman takes over the world in a time skip dialogue box. Sonic takes it back by running through levels. The world contains one city (called "city").
    It's so annoying the lack of effort that went into world-building and contextualising Forces. The whole idea of Eggman talking over the world is a great premise on paper, but everything about it falls flat. Even Green Hill, the one returning location that is wasn't an Eggman fortress already, is presented as being destroyed a full six months before he takes over the world. Urgh...
    I was out for a walk today and for no particular reason was thinking about Unleashed. It's the last time that story actually mattered in a mainline Sonic game and even the spinoffs died off very shortly afterwards. I really hope that SEGA can go all-out on a Sonic game in the near future. And if they can't, I'd much rather have something more conservative in its storytelling like Colours. That's a better option than unanswered questions and half-baked idea like Lost World and Forces.

    I for one will always prefer "Shonen Sonic" to the "Saturday Morning Sonic" we've had for the past decade. I do wonder what new direction we may get now that we're in a new decade of Sonic, though...

    One of my least favourite fantasy clichés is when the story presents us with this skilled, accomplished woman whose sole role in the plot is to lend training and moral support to some mediocre guy.
