    I didn’t know people would take it like this.

      Saw some mentions of this on my twitter feed. People didn't take too kindly to the title, or apparently the idea of "sonictubers" in general. Which, you know, is sort of a weird thing to be taking time out of your day to hate on since you can literally just not watch the stuff but hey, what's new with twitter I guess.

      Personally speaking, guy lays it on thick in a number of places but I certainly don't disagree with his overall view. Don't know if this is the actual direction Sega is taking though as only time will confirm that.

      That's not even what he said...

      Not returning wholesale basically means they don't plan to do more than what they're already doing, and aren't committed to making it its own fully fledged branch with the same attention as moden Sonic.

  2. 1. The crappy friends... they’re back! Forces WAS on the borderline of properly bad, though.
  3. I just dreamed about creating a Power Rangers-like series about rapping bears who took on humanoid forms to fight crime from afar with laser pistols that shot chi blasts after they locked on. The main protagonist was a human who also got changed into a bear while he was in a grassy field. At one point, one of the rap sequences had some guy get his root beer stolen by the bears, before he tried to lock them inside. The bears simply up and left him, and let the propane he was carrying do the work. At the end of the dream, I was in this spooky, dusty old house and led out to my father’s truck by a waif who looked kinda like Saya from Saya No Uta. Another part was discussing what Disney+ would be like if they kept Miramax and Power Rangers. Among the offerings shown on the channel was a fictitious anime where the protagonist was some brunette dude, and he was in a river being splashed with water, all as the Disney+ theme played. And then I red a book of “Alice in Wonderland”, supposedly featuring David Hall’s illustrations; but these now included houses with multiple pairs of eyes, as well as additional ones placed vertically. 

  4. It’s actually pretty interesting concerning marketing details like that. Not to mention “Death Egg Sigma”, “her red ring”, etc, from the Twitter stuff.
  5. And Dimps was kicked off after their Lost World port. Still, “meh” is a higher standard than what’s being done today.
  6. Include some elements of the IDW comics, at least as cameos, if not playing major roles. Feature the human world more. And NOT the “literally just our world” thing in the Movie, but the ORIGINAL human world in the vein of the games.
  7. And those that aren’t... still fall flat.
  8. Maybe they justify Dodonpa as an alien/too specialized, but still.
  9. I want Michelle Rodriguez as Blaze. The Chaotix can keep their game voices. I could see Halle Berry as Rouge or Sally. Amy can also keep her game voice, or maybe get Lisa Oritz back. Not sure about Silver, the other Freedom Fighters, Tangle, etc.
  10. Crash’s comeback was a miracle. Even Megaman and Spyro ain’t fully back yet. Bomberman’s return was well-received, but all we got since was a battle royale edition of that comeback game. Battletoads? Bubsy? Backyard Sports? Prehistorik? Rocket Knight? Ty? Don’t make me laugh.
  11. “Dead horses” in western animation are so because of a lack of an overarching narrative of any sort. I say a non-western example of a “dead horse” would be Sazae-San, as it too lacks an overarching narrative. Some shows, such as Thomas the Tank Engine, get brief “renaissance” periods before returning to be as bad or even worse than before. (Season 12 of SpongeBob is considered average, but I’m suspicious of the ones to come after it...) And releasing the series into the PD? Great idea there!
  12. I don’t think I I see people who want plot-relevant Wisps or Deadly Six back yet...
  13. Now where would Pontaff go? Or the likes of Maekawa? I’m pretty sure the non-Japanese writers from Boom and prior are out of the pictured though.
  14. I now wonder if SEGA would be the same way as Nintendo concerning the adaptations? And even then these “fringe” characters are limited time offers, and considered more in the category of crossover characters like the Angry Birds. A handful of Nintendo franchises HAVE added fringe characters in certain products, such as Escargoon in some Kirby games. EDIT: Streets of Rage 4 also has some references to the Fleetway comic included.
  15. I think the funniest part of all this hubbub is that SEGA still forgot to copyright post-reboot material, meaning it’s all owned by Archie Comics themselves, who have moved on to mainly support their eponymous universe. I’m honestly surprised Dash has Longclaw, even if as a limited-time-only character.
  16. I had a dream that they were celebrating the 30th anniversary of MLP by bringing back G3 Ponies but adding human characters. They seemed to refuse to acknowledge G4, however. By the way, how’s Pony Life doing?

  17. The exception that proves the rule, no less. The game was abandoned right after launch and has minimal content.
  18. It’s funny and sad how critics went from calling them the unsung heroes of the franchise to calling them pale imitations riddled with “shitty friends” and “dark plots” around the time Lost World rolled around.
  19. Many B-to-D grade studios were killed over the 2010s due to the harshness of the industry, leaving a gap for indies to grow. Remember Griptonite? Blue Tongue? And yes, companies like EA killed a lot of them, but many others just off and died.
  20. Something along the lines of SNK’s fighting games, like Fatal Fury and KOF. Keep it balanced and cool. This is why a boat that sails between dimensions is acceptable, and a Paperclip TV isn’t really acceptable. Shadow was certainly edging on too dark at times, but it fit the aesthetic well. Same with Mania and lightness.
  21. Last night I dreamed about visiting a Disney park of my very own creation. Mr. Toad had a delay, because a bunch of teen girls had been using it for a rally. So I had to investigate. There I found that Peter Cullen had retired due to cancel culture. Apparently he voiced Duke Nukem in this dream. Earlier, I was inside a discount store; and discovered that the Jim Henson company attempted another Christmas Carol movie in 2013. At one point, I was at my old house, where my dad was having a meeting, and served bacon and hot cereal. I was also on a forum where they discussed having Barney in a Streets of Rage game as a joke character. I also played a Mugen installation full of characters I had never heard of. 

  22. Not to mention the various bits of one-time insanity in Lost World. Donut levels aside, we have making apple juice, rolling snowballs, matching blocks, and other garden-logic experiences.
  23. Am I the only one who thinks Espio would be cooler if he had a third eye? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parietal_eye It would not only reflect the mystical aspects of his character, it would also be scientifically accurate as well. Maybe even make it look more like a real chameleon eye. And about the Six, they at least, after their initial defeats, managed to make underdogs of themselves and pull one up on Sonic. The same can’t be said for later villains... I think if the Sonic Eraser music had better instruments it wouldn’t be bad.
  24. The IDW comics are at least trying, to say the least. Mania also has only one Sonic, plus four other playable characters. They’re beginning to step away from the extremes of Colors.
  25. We have seen from Sonic Lost World that this is most likely nothing more than an excuse/euphemism for not wanting to do it.
