  1. Did StarFox Zero kill StarFox?

      I mean for the next half a decade to a decade. That tends to be how this series goes.

    2. I Have Berry!

      Well at least it has that Starlink, which itself had the misfortune of coming around the time Toys To Life stuff were dying off. I'll give it time.

      I'm going to say yes. The series was already underground for a decade due to how poorly Command sold, and the 3DS remake of SF64 didn't help matters (although in its defense, it was released when the 3DS as a whole was struggling out the gate, before the price cut). Zero was arguably the one shot they had at doing the series justice after years of experiments and they shot themselves in the foot again.

      Although they did give the original SF2 for the SNES an official release (after it was cancelled/leaked online for years) on the SNES Mini Console, and Starlink also got some SF DLC, if either of those helps...

  2. Yeah I'll be honest and say the repetitive nature of this arc is really what brings it down. I was personally hoping for some sort of shake-up but it ultimately never happened. I was expecting Shadow to be struggling to be in control while he was a Zombot. And the fact that Sonic's infection kept getting worse in every issue to the point he's nearly converted twice made me want to have at least a full panel of him going full Zombot before being cured. Neither of those things have happened/look like they're happening. In fact now that I think about it, my biggest issue is we hardly see the characters once they become Zombots. Most of the time they convert and the issue ends. I would have liked to see Sonic and co fight them off a bit more often.
  3. What are the chances of seeing Zombot merch in the SEGA store later on when this arc has wrapped up? We've already had Tangle on shirts and a pin set with her and Whisper. I would love to see a Zombot Sonic keychain, if possible.
  4. DMC 3 HD remake was just leaked

  5. Would you be upset if Sega just made blue arms canon at this point? Like they release the next main Sonic game and Sonic has a new model with blue arms?

      Yes, because blue arms looks rubbish.

      Sure would.

      Yeah, Sonic and Amy are the only characters with peach arms, but clear to see distinctions are part of the design philosophy of lead characters (though Any was kind of just following the in universe appearance that was set by Sonic pre Shadow and Silver). That, and blue arms just like individual eyes really rubs me and my aesthetic tastes the wrong way.

      it'd be an unnecessary and overall negative change but it's not significant enough to get upset over.

      Nah, blue arms look better in some cases anyways

      I always thought that both blue arms and flesh arms were canon. One was just Sonic after he hasn't shaved in a while

  6. I'm slowly starting to hit burnout with Pokemon Shield. Really need a new game to play. Is the new Mario and Sonic any good?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I've not played it myself, but I've heard it's very much just what you would expect. Simple minigames, and a fun enough story that will keep you entertained for a just a few hours. No replay value.

  7. Watching the original Lion King atm. What happened with the remake? Like I enjoyed it for what it was, but it lacked heart and soul. Disney even went out of their way to get a few of the old production members to help guide them along and oversee development. How did they fuck up?? Did the new team just ignore the old team members? Is this a Sonic movie situation we're looking at?

    1. Strickerx5

      The drive for "heart" was pretty much thrown right out the door the very moment they decided to go realistic with the characters; specifically the lions.

      Cats don't really emote. Which means your main cast can't really express deep emotions visually. That's a huge problem to work around, animated or not.

    2. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      As well as what Stricker said, the colour pallet was also realistic so can't touch the originals vibrant and beautiful colours as well as the music being nowhere near as good (Elton John has admitted as much) and lastly, some actors just not emoting much (I love James Earl Jones but man, he was neutered in the 2019 version). The only one I feel who brought their A game was Hans Zimmer, who did a really good reprise of his score.

  8. As good as Jack Lawrence is, I really hope Evan Stanley can return to the main book soon. I really miss her Sonic. I kinda wish Tangle and Whisper got the new artists instead of the main book.
  9. What happens to all these costumes once an event is over? Do they get discarded or does SEGA put them in a vault? Would love to know if some of these Classic Sonic costumes are still kicking around. At the very least the SA2 one is still alive - it was used at an international event fairly recently.
  10. So given the cover of #24 is there a chance Sonic will become a zombot in that issue? At the very least I am hoping he does turn eventually, even it's just for a single issue, since all the close calls keep teasing it and Sonic's speed is slowly becoming less and less effective. Plus Sonic is already flat-out exhausted as it is. Sooner or later his body is just going to shut down from lack of rest.
  11. If the FF's do return to IDW can Sally be fully covered this time? And not have a large chest. People seem obsessed with making Sally a fanservice-y character and that's honestly part of my disdain for them.

    1. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      She was already fully covered in the reboot.

      And she has been ever since.

    2. Sean

      Sean

      She hasn't been sexualized for years even before the reboot changed her clothes so I don't have a problem with what she wears

      Uh huh...

  12. Not sure if this will be available anywhere else, but JB Hi-Fi in Australia is releasing a "special edition" that comes with a Sonic figure: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/playstation-4-team-sonic-racing-special-edition It releases on November 8th and I think the Classic Sonic figure is just a placeholder - there was rumors of a TSR Sonic figure being made.
  13. Did the comic get delayed again? It's usually up on the IDW site by around this time but it's still listed as "coming soon"
  14. The downside to playing remastered games in 2019 is that a PS2 game controls exactly like a PS2 game

    1. StaticMania

      StaticMania

      I'm not sure that means much if the game controlled well to begin with.

      But obviously it's the game.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Even games that controlled well back in the day feel different to how games control now. There have been a lot of nuanced improvements that aren't always that obvious.

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I remember going back to Melee after years and realising how many of the controls were minimally yet so noticeably different compared to the current Smash games.

      I hate Melee’s controls now.
