    FriendBot got a reaction from tailsBOOM! in Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice   
    Huh, interesting it seems like it was originally planned that it was Tails and Sonic that fights the final boss, Double Trouble. Not with Sticks, interesting.
    Guess they went with Sticks later in development since it probably made more sense with the story.
    Nice find man!

    FriendBot got a reaction from STK77 in ScrewAttack's "Death Battle" Series   
    Not really Death Battle related but one guy from the people who animates the battles decides to do his own series where there's no research but have 2 badasses duking it out in a 1 minute battle hence the series is called One Minute Melee. The reason I'm doing this now is because the latest battle is with everyone's favorite fictional speedsters of all time.
     

     
    Sonic vs the MOTHERFUCKING FLASH!
     
    Granted they also did an Eggman vs Bowser, Super Mario Bros Z-styled so that was cool. Also the more latest battles like Lucario vs Renamon and Mega Man vs Samus were really damn good as well but this battle got me smiling so much. Enjoy this spinoff series folks!

    FriendBot got a reaction from Syntax Speedway in Sonic Boom(the show) is a nominee for Teen Choice Award   
    I'm a glass full kind of guy so this going to be disgustingly optimistic.
    But the fact Boom has a nomination at all and is competing against the more popular and bigger shows is definitely a big victory for Boom overall, not sure if how it got its place because of the people behind the awards show chose it or enough fans tweeted out how it should be nominated but either way, it definitely shows that the Boom show is doing something very right to get this kind of attention.
    It might not win at all but gosh darn it, I'll definitely spam the crap out of the tweet votes I can spam out!
    Major kuddos to the entire Boom team!

    Shun clarifies how there's not 3 separate stories so I'm guessing is, you play a stage as that character and you'll see what their perspective on that time.

    FriendBot got a reaction from NikoS in Should sonic boom be canceled ?   
    As someone that adores everything Boom, obviously hell no.
    While I can agree the games are nothing noteworthy but the cartoon has been doing pretty well.... outside the US, not kidding. So while Boom is doing decent enough on Boomerang but seeing how it won Best Animation at the Chico Film Festival a few months ago and is nominated for Teens Choice Best Animated TV Show along with more well-known cartoons, I just find it very unlikely that Boom is going to end after its second season.
    And I can see why people are coming from where Boom is pointless when the main series have been going for a more comical tone but I don't think that's really the case. The only game that's going for a more comical tone in the main series was Colors. Generations has such a lackluster story with no tone so there was barely any comedy in it, Lost World attempted to go for a balanced tone of serious and comical moments and well yeah, didn't work out. And from the looks of it, Forces is going back to a more serious tone.
    So idk, I find it difficult to see the main series interpretation being placed in the Boom cartoon. Like Boom is a different type of comedy from any other comical attempts in the series, it's very much a sitcom with a casual laidback tone. But with Season 2, it's definitely putting a bigger focus on action/adventure as well with the multiparter episodes but it still has the comical flair that makes Boom standout.
    Boom is doing fine and it's definitely helps show that Sonic is more than just a gaming character but a multimedia icon. But I can understand if Boom isn't going to last long but until then, I'm gonna enjoy the living crap out of this subseries!
    GIVE ME MORE BOOM BAYBEEE!

    Well, we have been told nearly from the beginning that:
    1. It is longer than Generations.
    2. We don't have to worry about the high ratio of returning levels because it is a big game.
    Take that as you will.

    GET THE ALBUM HERE: http://sonic25.ocremix.org/
    So OCR just dropped this. Thought I'd give it a signal boost among the most passionate of Sonic fans haha. I was able to be a small part of it (Coral Caves with Jorito and Joshua Taipale, 0:55 in the trailer  )

    The music in the series honestly is one of the best features to me. It's what made me start making music so I have a lot of sentimental value to it, it's nice to see a Sonic remix album tribute to songs across so many of the games. :') Happy birthday blue blur, you've been an important part of my life.

    FriendBot reacted to Kiah in Sonic 25th Anniversary Questionnaire Event-THE END!   
    Okay SSMB, the time has finally come: the official end of the Sonic 25th Anniversary Questionnaire Event. I'm letting you know right now that this is going to be a long final post...to the absolute surprise to no one
    I knew from prior experience how challenging just being a sponsor and moderator in charge of a SSMB event is on top of being a participant. This was the first time I ever hosted an event here and it is hard work and time-consuming! And that is on top of the moderating duties AND participating! To everyone that has hosted, is hosting or will host an SSMB event you definitely have my respect and admiration with the dedication and hard work put into these things-all at the expense of your energy, talents and free time for the sake of doing something fun for the community. I've always appreciated members doing this sort of thing but after experiencing it for myself that appreciation has increased dramatically. 
    As for my overall thoughts of the event, I was very pleased with how smoothly everything went. I honestly did not to expect to see so much effort and passion put in to replies-especially when only a sentence or two were required bar an image needing to be posted for one of the questions. A lot of you went above and beyond what was necessary to accomplish the questionnaire and that just makes me very happy to see that-especially for a Sonic-related event. As for questions that were considered tough to answer my apologies as that was not what I was going for! But see what happens when there are so many great things to choose from in the Sonic series? It was really enjoyable to for me to read many of the the entries here to see everyone's favorites and what they love about this series.
    SSMB events tend to have a spreadsheet accompanied with them for tallying purposes. This event was no different as per usual I would like to show a sample of what the spreadsheet for this event looked like:
     
    The colors do mean several things in regards to participation, statuses and the like. Since there are so few colors I actually will explain the significance of them:
    Orange: Absolutely nothing It's my favorite color and I just wanted it to be color of the header
    Yellow/Gold: This color signifies not only completion of the questionnaire but satisfactory completion and participants with this status WILL earn a badge I picked this color due to Super Sonic and him usually appearing after the collection of all the Chaos Emeralds is complete
    Speaking of completion, all of the basic black "X"'s signifies a question satisfactorily completed.
    You may have noticed that the "X"'s for Question 5 are all in bold. I indicated previously that this question was of additional significance, as the answer given would determine which badge would be awarded:
        Black X in Bold: Classic Sonic because of black eyes
        Green X in Bold: Modern Sonic because of green eyes
        Blue X in Bold: Those undecided between the two. I picked blue because Sonic is blue in both Classic and Modern form I'll explain the meaning of the codes in parentheses later on.
    Also if you have been a part of a SSMB event that I have sponsored you may recall that I like to share some statistics in regards to the participants and I will do that here as well:
    While there is no way to determine this unless I asked and got an answer from everyone if this was their first event on the SSMB or not but 22 participants will be getting their very first badge! Congrats!
    Number of participants in this event: 64. Hope you all enjoyed yourselves!
    Number of participants that completed the questionnaire (not unnecessarily satisfactorily): 63. That is a an impressive 98.4%! Great job everyone!
    Number of Modern Sonic fans among participants: 30
    Number of Classic Sonic fans among participants: 24
    Number of undecided: 9
        To determine which badge would be awarded to the undecided participants between the two Sonics, a coin flip was performed. Which coin did I use? A Sonic 25th Anniversary coin, of course! 
      
        Not my actual coin that I was fortunate to find on eBay with the rest of the 25th Anniversary Sonic swag but just wanted to show you what it looks like
        The facing with Sonic was Heads which represented Classic and the 25th Anniversary logo was Tails representing Modern respectively. 
        Per the coin flips for the undecided participants, it was determined that 6 would receive the Classic Sonic badge (Code "FLIP=C") while 3 would receive the Modern Sonic Badge (Code "FLIP=M"). Both of these codes are among the BLUE notes in Column F/Question 5.
    Number of arguments and debates: 0. That's right, absolutely none!  
    Seriously, thank you all very much as that is commendable to have NONE of that in a Sonic topic around here!
    I had wanted to find out some more statistics among the questions of the questionnaire but amid a lack of time there were so many different answers, which is a very good thing. That means there are a lot of good and various things within the Sonic franchise that we all collectively enjoy
    In addition to thanking you all for your cooperation I have to thank fellow moderators @Nepenthe, @Zaysho, @Celestia, @Monkey Destruction Switch and @Tara for serving as an extra set of eyes on the event while participating in it at 100% as well as your encouragement as I was doubtful that I could actually do this, but you all assured me I could and I can't thank you enough for that. Fortunately everyone was well behaved so there was no need for us to get into "moderator mode" at all . Also it's no secret that things have been extremely busy on the SSMB in regards to Sonic Forces, Sonic Mania and E3 for us Staff so I really appreciate you taking the time to participate. Extra thanks to Zaysho for your additional assistance with the editing and sizing of the badges as I definitely did not know what I was doing at times being a first-timer with this sort of thing!
    Again, I wish to thank each and every one of you participants not only for your support with my event but also contributing to its fun and success. It's undeniable that for more than a quarter of a century Sonic has had some good times and bad times and up and downs-even currently as we speak with Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces on the horizon. I had wanted to focus on the positive elements of the Sonic franchise to take a break as it were from the dominant negativity as of late as well as making an event of it-hence this questionnaire and it was nice and fun for a month to be surrounded with positivity involving Sonic with fellow Sonic fans as there is so much to enjoy here per the diversity of the answers here. And as a moderator, trust me when I say I really appreciate a topic where there are no derailments or disturbance of any kind.
    While working a full-time job that leaves me very little free time I cannot tell you how much sleep I lost in doing all of this as I was up at odd hours of the night reading, tallying and sending PMs while creating my own lengthy answers and having many losing battles with Photoshop in the creation of the badges, but I have no regrets as it was nice to be able to do something nice for the community here, for you guys, and having fun while doing so to celebrate such a significant milestone for Sonic and I hope you had fun as well. Not to mention it's been a while since we had an open event here at the SSMB and I felt it was definitely overdue to do that as well as provide an opportunity for members to earn badges whether it was for the first time or the first time in a long time.
    Sonic has been my favorite character of all time and the series has been my favorite for more than 25 years now providing plenty of wonderful things and memories along the way. While I hope for the best and for things to improve, I am just thankful and happy that Sonic is still running as I would of never imagined Sonic still being around at this point in my life let alone still be a passionate fan of his. And the SSMB provides proof that I'm not the only one . May the Blue Blur run for many more years to come .
    Provided I don't run into any technical issues, I will award the badges immediately after this post.
    And that's a wrap ladies and gentlemen! Thank you so much for participating in the SSMB Sonic 25th Anniversary Questionnaire Event!

    What's your business plan to go along with it? 
    Who is your contact for sending this to? 
    Who is your secondary contact for sending this to?
    What is your cut off point for the signatures? Since 1000 is such a small number you'll have to factor in a time for success to make it a worthwhile proposition to both companies.
    How are you verifying signatures?
    How are you processing the data gained by the signatures. Age range? Location? Income? Other demographic?
     
    If you don't have an answer to any of these. You're one step closer to finding out why the don't work.
