  1. 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.

      Why doesn't this kind of cool stuff appear in my Reddit feed instead of the usual shitpost from the Sonic community?

      Well, a date would be nice to take a conclusion. I believe this might be just one of the many turnarounds Sonic X-Treme had. But a 2.5D Sonic game for Saturn would be very impressive, and I'd like something like that. I mean, even 25 years later, and I think this is one of the most desired styles which ended working better with Sonic.

      So yeah, it's not just mind-blowing for me as it quite sounds very ahead for the time. I wonder how many other releases never see the light of the day...

      yeah, I think it's prolly just referring to Xtreme; that screenshot's from Fighters, back when it was still mostly a Fighting Vipers mod

  2. I had a dream last night about a hack of the Simpsons arcade game that added additional secret areas and even threw in Tommy and Chuckie from Rugrats for some reason; complete with animated cutscenes of them inside an amusement park ride, where this other kid gave them a jolt of static electricity and held Wawa hostage.

  3. The GE Infinite was finally given a release:

     

     

    He’s at 18 minutes in.

  4. 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?

  5. 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. 

  6. I feel like one of the reasons people miss Boom so much is because it was less meta than most other Sonic media of the time and shortly after.

      it's still more meta than there's been in the last decade's worth of non-boom sonic

    4. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Are we counting the entire Sonic twitter in that equation?

    5. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      the sonic twitter doesn't count since it's not within the series, it's outside it.

    6. Zaysho

      I hate the Sonic Twitter but even I don't think it's fair to compare it with actual media.

    7. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      That's usually what people refer to when it comes to the "Meta era" for the most part. 

    8. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      In no way are Sonic Forces or the Movie (maybe the IDW comics) swamped with meta humor. Referencing memes, pop culture or other Sonic content is not the same as saying "Why did we do/are we keep doing this stupid thing".

    9. Wraith

      sonic boom is one of the most obnoxiously self aware cartoons to ever air

    10. Snowragnarok

      Snowragnarok

      Oh wait, I was wrong;

       

      Boom has actual meta-HUMOR.

       

      The games just have references and don’t try to make jokes out of them.

  7. How much longer before SEGA completely buries American Sonic? I still see some vestigial traits in IDW (and the movie to a lesser extent), and some half-joking nods on social media. Mania however had nothing, nor did Forces. 

    1. Thigolf

      As in, elements of the old American Sonic, like “Robotnik/Kintobor”, the overall tone, etc. I can still smell some vestigial Archie traits in IDW.

    3. Supah Berry

      The only thing I know for certain is stopping that from happening is Paramont. It surprising, but understandable that they would bring back the Robotnik name

      IDW tends to feel like Archie lite to me, though I think it feels that way to me because the majority of the staff are from Archie and just brought the same sensibilities to a far more strictly controlled licensed comic. They're also the only people working on the franchise currently that even remotely care about anything pre-Adventure or before 2010 and actually understand why it appeals to some fans.

      I thought Japan was the only one who liked and cared about Sonic :V

    6. Snowragnarok

      Snowragnarok

      Zaysho, a few nods were included in Team Sonic Racing, notably Rooftop Run. Even then, these are only superficial aspects.

    7. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      Never played TSR, what were they?

    8. Snowragnarok

      Snowragnarok

      Rooftop Run and Seaside Hill are included as levels. There’s a power up part called “Maria’s Boon”. King Boom Boo puts in an appearance as a hazard. There’s a Crush 40 theme song.

      @Snowragnarok

      No different from when they included a playable Shadow in Forces, complete with SA2 and ShTH remixes. Like you said, it's superfical.

       

      @Kuzu

      Not helping that Sonic's much more popular on western shores than there. Although I suppose Japan doesn't have as big a burning hatred towards Sonic either, so it goes both ways.

  8. If they really want to keep Eggman as the final boss despite other villains being the actually threats, the least they could do is have (insert boss here) Soul fights ala Kirby.

      Maybe do a secret monster boss a la sonic colors ds.

  9. I just had a dream about me looking on a TV Tropes page about this batshit insane reimagining of Star Wars by some hack director that totally changed the franchise to the point it was pretty much just the Battle Droids and Wookiees left. They were fighting on a post-apocalyptic Earth, and these Earth kids got mixed up in things, and the Battle Droids had flamethrowers with which they would cross the streams for deadlier firepower. Then suddenly, crossing the streams was all the rage in REAL LIFE, too. 
     

    Earlier, I was paid to answer Star Wars trivia questions from observing the movies for Easter Eggs. I saw Stan Lee and George Lucas watching the movie. I supposed Walt Disney and Jim Henson were also watching from the heavens. Meanwhile, I visited this exhibit about the current doings of the Creature Shop, and how they had a parade float featuring Muppet reinterpretations of other popular characters. I actually got to handle this weird featureless Snoopy-like plush they made. The rest of the dream was in a hotel where I was trying to get to Disney California Adventure.

      Sounds like a pretty daring synopsis, but Episode X sound phenomenal

  10. Another weird thing regarding Two Worlds:

     

     

    Two worlds not only predates Individual Bubbles and the Classic-Modern Split, it goes back to the Genesis era, and it isn’t even a WESTERN CONCEPT, to boot! 

    1. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Yeah, but it's more like the Western conception of Mobius because a separate human-populated Earth wasn't established yet.

    2. Snowragnarok

      Snowragnarok

      Fleetway was the first time we really saw a separate human planet in anything...

  11. Hmmm....

    interesting discovery:

     

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Ok that description got a few snorts from me. How do you have a fox complexation? Also fox brown hair should be a color. lol

      But there's another piece of support for the 2 worlds theory being true.

    2. Plumbers_Helper

      Plumbers_Helper

      What I always found amusing was that sign claims Tails' fur is brown, when he clearly isn't, yet in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, where Tails is clearly brown, Sonic says he's orange.

       

    3. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Eh, I don't really see it...but "Complexion: Fox" is quite funny.

  12. Remember when people thought Sonic Lost World was dark? Nowadays people have completely forgotten that. 

  13. Any news on the GE Entertainment Infinite plush?

  14. Zavok survived because Sonic didn’t slay him, he just sent him to Minecraft. 

  15. During the twilight of Eisner's reign, people wanted to #SaveDisney. Nowadays, starting in the twilight of Iger's reign, people are more wanting to kill it. Before Onward came out, I thought it was about how Disney had changed. Now that Onward was released, I realize it's about how the world has changed.

  16. What if...

    (spoilers for Sly Cooper and Danganronpa below)

     

    Penelope IS Clockwerk, sorta like the relationship between Monokuma and the real Junko Enoshima? There would also have been a Mukuro in the equation, making the one from the third game technically not Clockwerk. This would actually make a lot of sense to explain things like her change in behavior

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I have no idea what you're talking about (guessing it's an anime/manga that I don't watch/read), but you might want to let people know what the subject matter is before the spoiler tag.

    2. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      Spoiler

      Doesn't one of the easter egg conversation implies Le Paradox is the one who provided Clockwerk the technology to augment himself including the Hate Chip?

       

  17. If a future Sonic movie has Blaze, she should be voiced by Michelle Rodriguez. It would be a nice homage to her fate in 2006, and the types of characters Michelle Rodriguez has a tendency to play. 

  18. I bet Sly 5 ends with...

    1. Jingilator

      Jingilator

      Actually getting released

  19. What if there was a reverse-Zombot virus that turned all metal and inorganic material into flesh? That would be a fun arc.

    1. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      I mean, Archie kiiinda did it when they did the whole deroboticisation around the 100s milestone.

    2. Snowragnarok

      Snowragnarok

      I mean something as infectious as the Zombot thing, turning everyone’s technology into fleshy counterparts as a side effect, and now they have to find a way to stop it.

  20. Hey look, Puyo Day!

    1. Your Vest Friend
    2. Snowragnarok

      Snowragnarok

      I can understand why you dislike Puyo, but not so strong of a dislike of it. 

  21. Given Zavok's apparent regeneration power, if you split him in twain, would there eventually emerge twin Zavokii from the partitioned segments?

    1. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Why are you so convinced that he died

    2. Snowragnarok

      Snowragnarok

      Because we didn’t get a sign that he survived the lava until a lot later?

  22. Apparently on ResetEra we'll be getting a whole bunch of Sonic CD alpha stuff soon.

  23. Kevin “Eggor” Valentino, from Robotnik’s Laboratory. Just read that book.
