  1. "Day 16: If you could have one character's abilities/powers/skills/etc, what would you like to have?"

    Honestly? Sonic's super speed! Being the idealistic fart I am, it'd be sweet to be able to explore the world at my leisure, seeing the sights I feel like seeing, discovering lots of things and finding out more about this world I live in.

    Being able to visit friends far away would be a plus, too - as well as the conventional everyday benefits like the walk back home taking a mere second.

    As for the question from yesterday, I can actually do a relatively competent impression of Jason Griffith, ahaha.

  2. But he already is. He's already inspired Tails to be a hero and stand up for himself, inspired Amy (albeit indirectly) to be brave and to fight, inspired Blaze to be less insecure and more open for friends and receiving help, amongst others. We already get these moments as it is.


    As far as the general opinion that believes you think Sonic is perfect... Well, you cover up Sonic's 'mistakes', such as being captured by the GUN and having to be rescued by Amy (which is honestly nice, depicting Sonic isn't perfect and needs help at times, while depicting Amy to be a strong individual who can stand up for her own and help Sonic when he's in need), for instance. It's natural to require help; heck, Sonic even willingly got assisted by Silver in Kingdom Valley, in Sonic 06. You don't have to make everyone into sitting ducks to make Sonic a good character; in fact, you need a strong supporting cast for Sonic to work with for it. Sonic can't do everything, which is a good thing... and that's why the other characters are there to fill what Sonic can't do on his own.

  3. Let me get this straight, Sonikku-chan. I get you're a fan of Sonic (the character) and you like him getting spotlights, yadda yadda. As a fan of him myself, I can understand where you're coming from. However, it's seeming that you're failing to realize that even Sonic has limits, flaws, fallacies and faults. Sonic isn't perfect, and neither is he a mentor; while I do expect him to have street smarts on the things he usually does like running and smashing badniks, Sonic isn't talented in every way. He isn't as experienced as Tails in mechanics, as experienced as Amy in hammers, as experienced as Knuckles about treasure hunting... The list can go on. One thing you might need to acknowledge is that while I can relate for your looking up to Sonic, Sonic isn't perfect; he has flaws and limits. Other characters exist to fill those flaws and limits... While Sonic fills the others'. I hate to derange my topic, but it works the same way in real life... Nobody is perfect, and nobody ever will be. A perfect human will be an impossibility in my eyes, and thus Sonic, to be a believable character, needs flaws. He needs to be... imperfect. When looking up to Sonic and admiring his qualities... You'll have to remember; not only do you have to learn from his triumphs, you need to learn from his errors, as well.

  4. Sonic 1, emulated on PC as a port on Sega CD that allows me to listen to Project Flash as I play the game. :P

    balls_by_flash__light-d6zqtmt.png?token=Eggman, with his two gems.


    Beat Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World as well; I hope you appreciate the Year of Luigi.


    Not pictured: 34 lives. :P

  5. He's frankly getting pointless to me real fast.

    I mean sure he's the obligatory power character and he was chucked to Team Sonic because "LOLCLASSICTRIOHE'SAPOWERCHARACTERLOLOLOL" in Heroes but WHAT ABOUT THE FREAKING MASTER EMERALD YOU DOLT

    I mean like PONTAC

    Sure he wasn't the first one to pointless-ize the Master Emerald but STILL

    ahgkashgjkahskj I don't even know what I'm talking about here my point is that I don't think he has a purpose at all.

    I mean how many lines does he even get in Lost World like two or three? Yeah yeah YEAH GO BACK TO PROTECTING THE MASTER EMERALD YOU AT LEAST HAVE A PURPOSE THAT WAY

  6. I'll just get to the point that I'm most concerned about: The music.

    The person who did it seems to be either an inexperienced beginner or a lazy bum, only changing instruments... and pitches, for whatever reason. The problem is, however, that the pitches of some of the instruments are left intact, giving it an horrible dissonance that just flat-out screams "BEGINNER HACK". Really, the melodies and themes themselves seem to be completely unchanged... Why not at least keep the music until you find someone more experienced?

  7. As a long-time Dr. Mario fan, I am thrilled!

    I love how they made new music (finally; oh and the instrumentation makes it feel retro as heck, and that is a good thing in my book!) and new gameplay styles; if I had a Wii U, I'd be getting this for sure!

  8. Frankly? He's my favorite character in the series... well, the Unleashed and Black Knight versions of him anyway. The rest...? Ehh. They're kinda varying in my eyes, like Lost World coming slightly close but feeling a lot to be desired, or Heroes feeling like it didn't have enough... depth. Still, I tend to be able to emotionally relate to Sonic at times, long to be like the portrayals of him I love and heck, I kind of try, too!


    (The below is just a paragraphed version of my profile text, filled up)


    Sonic, in Unleashed, is depicted as an easy-going optimistic guy who looks at the brighter side of every situation... Like I've said, I'd like to be one like that. He's still never devoid of his trademark attitude, however, being his cocky self when it comes to people like Eggman, while leaving room for showing emotion and care for his friends; Chip and his friendship and Sonic actually accepting a date from Amy (which, looking at Black Knight, I believe to be canon) come to mind. He's very much definitely the same Sonic as in previous games, but something feels noticeably chill about him - to this, I answer with this quote. "Yeah, this is the real me! Pretty cool, huh?"

    Going on with the being-who-he-really-is-and-being-proud-of-it thing, Black Knight provides one of my favorite portrayals of Sonic the Hedgehog. His attitude's more noticeable, with his snarky exchanges with Caliburn at times... But it's used in a heroic way as well, such as when Sonic goes to slay the dragon that Nimue (disguised as a kid) tells him about, saying he "plays by his own rules". Things like that... I really, really love it; I find it a holy matrimony of his heroics and his attitude.


    In a nutshell... Maybe I don't really like the other interpretations of Sonic as much as I do Unleashed and Black Knight, but still, he's my favorite character of the series, and I really, really hope his characterization gets close to those two portrayals again someday.

  9. Wow, I'll have to say, I'm blown away!

    Back in the good ol' times when things were simple, I knew you as that tone-deaf guy who only made remixes... Time flies, doesn't it?

    To see you having come up with 15 original tracks (Well, 7 original compositions, it seems) after then is amazing; just comes to show everyone can and will improve!

    I can't say I'm familiar with Rider's normal musical style at all, but I'm very impressed with these compositions; your simple melodies seem to fit the... trance-esque? (please don't kill me) music you do very, very well! They're also very catchy for the most part, so kudos to you there.

    Your mixing and mastering seem to be rather top-notch, being more than I could frankly wish for for myself, heh... the equalization, effects and mixing you do (massive loves to SPOILERS Impending Avanlanche's glitcdh and dusk destruction's pitchben) are really quite impressive!


    All in all, I like this; I'm quite sure this is gonna be something I'm gonna listen to for quite some time! Great job, Faseeh.

  10. That's weird... I don't ever recall this happening before.

    Is this a recent change or something? I have been lurking for quite a while, after all... Maybe that would explain something


    It's really not too much of an issue, I guess.. Though even a minor issue is an issue, I'd presume. It's something I can personally live with, but if there's nothing else to fix, I guess this might be a good thing to work on; assuming it's possible, anyway.

  11. Bias and stereotype incoming, but looking at The Fox and Gangnam Style and that kinda stuff, I kinda think the popularity and alleged quality of a song by the mainstream public just depends on its humor factor nowadays. It's quite a shame, when there's tons of amazing people out there who really make good stuff yet get no attention, while there's tons of viral hits just because they're 'funny'. Of course there's tons of good music out there that happen to be popular, but really... The most popular ones just seem to be the ones trying to appeal with so-called humor to me, ya know?

  12. inb4 the theme song is a short remix of Sonic 4's theme.


    Connotations to an infamous game aside, the main theme for Sonic 4 is a good composition - It's definitely a very Sonic-esque composition, and a quite excellent follow-up to Sonic and Knuckles' theme, in my eyes. It just had not-too-hot instrumentation, but if it's gonna be a remix, I can assume that to be improved drastically.


    Of course, that still doesn't mean people wouldn't hate it... *shrugs*

  13. Okay so I know and love Windy Groove but I personally think for 9 remixes (however good they may be) $7 is a biiiit too much? I mean my 20-track Can of Nothing: Project Flash is $4 and even that's gonna be optional for 10 bonus downloads but lemme guess, rule of cashing in on existing IPs---- WHOOOOPDEFREEEAAAKINGDOOOOOIMEEEEEAAAAAAAN proper mixing. *shrug*

  14. Seriously, if Masato Nakamura didn't have a vocal theme to remix for the Death Egg Robo, I'm sure Ohtani can make something as well.


    That aside, I love Wonder World. The main melody just feels so much like a classic Sonic game's title screen, kinda like a "back to roots and moving on from there" kinda deal! The piano bit's really cool, too~

  15. As much as I understand that you'd like some activity in this topic, I'm quite annoyed about that bump of a post - if you want to make some activity, I'd assume something worth generating activity would be necessary to generate said activity.


    That aside, have a lil' concept I made a month or so ago. It's my last attempt to salvage an old Tails expy I made years ago - made some heavy redesigns here and there to prevent from looking too much like Tails.




    And yes, this is my only fancharacter as of now, and I might still scrap him.
