    Revive One, Banish Another

    Banish the Deadly Six. Personally, I don't have all that much against them, but they're also just kinda there. Their designs are ugly and they look as if they belong in Mario or something, like everything else about Lost World. I'd be lying if I said their dialogue didn't make me laugh though, especially Zor. Still, I would happily ditch all six for the following: Revive Marine, Sticks, the Babylon Rogues, and Cream's prominence. It's been 11 years of no Marine outside of bread crumb cameos, one mention, and an appearance in the 25th anniversary Sonic Channel comics. I long for the day we'd finally see the spunky Aussie, hopefully by Blaze's side. Cream has really been lacking appearances and just once I'd like to see her interact with Blaze again. Sticks deserves a chance in the modern canon since Boom's dead. The Babylon Rogues are extremely fun and underrated characters. I think they're great rivals as well as comedy relief, and I love all things Riders. It's criminal TSR dropped the ball and does not feature these three. I think they're far more engaging rivals for Team Sonic than Team Dark.
  2. Looking forward to seeing this. I'd greatly prefer modern, but am expecting more classic. Mania Adventures was great so this will be hype either way. Just please don't be anything like Boom. PS: Sonic X was awesome. PSS: Both of Amy's game designs are great.

    Yeah. I didn't listen to it, so I am going by word of mouth. Anyone think we will see the Rogues in year one? Big? Marine? Maybe Tikal or Chaos?

    I think Sticks will appear, as Flynn basically already confirmed it. He said he couldn't say when because it would be "spoilerific." I'm certainly looking forward to her debut and I hope it's soon.
  5. I can't really disagree with those saying Blaze's car looks bad. I was expecting something really regal and expensive looking since she is a princess, or perhaps a set of flames emblazoned on it, but no, it's got... cat ears. o.o

    Happy to see Stanley doing the art for #9. Tracy is great, and he seems to be better than before, but I've never been particularly crazy about the way he draws Blaze... and others, for that matter. Stanley on the other hand, does a phenomenal job on Blaze, and I really enjoy her art a lot in general.

    The game also allegedly had numerous grammar failures in its dialogue IIRC, so you could chalk it up to bad translations, maybe? I never played it, so I don't know. Anyway, I'd rather not sit and debate this. I don't think "crap" belongs in Sonic and I'm not apologizing for it nor changing my mind about it, so let's all agree to disagree.

    Well, I agree with you there... Wasn't a fan of that either, but the game was at least rated for ages 10 plus, so it's something.

    I'm not going to argue whether crap is a bad word or not. All I am saying is I don't agree with it being in the comics. Kids read these comics too and not every parent is going to think that particular word is something that belongs in family friendly material, and I personally don't blame them. It's long been excluded in kids' content for a reason. Heck, no Sonic products to my knowledge have used the word either, until now. I'd prefer it stay that way, that's all.

    I really enjoyed issue #8. My favorite issues are the ones with plentiful dialogue and character interactions, and this one didn't let me down. Silver and Whisper were both adorable. Whisper says so little but still leaves a big impact and Silver proves what a likable character he can be. The action was great, the art was on-point, and I'm hyped to see what's next. Only thing I disliked was Silver's mild bad word. I'm just not a fan of that kind of language in anything Sonic related, so I hope it's not going to become the norm at any point.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    A sigh of relief for Blaze. I'm glad she made it in the game. Yes! I'm definitely not happy with the overall character roster, but Blaze being in it at least means some basic level of contentment with the game for me. I'm really quite ticked about the absence of Cream now, however. I was hoping her not being on Team Rose meant that maybe by some sliver of hope that she'd be on a team with Silver and Blaze, but nope, because no noodle-armed character other than Knuckles can be the power player or something. Why not just put Cream with all of the Chao on Team Rose? It makes no sense... Alas, I don't think I'll ever get my Blaze-Cream interactions again. And I am not going to complain about Blaze's team too much because at least she's there, but putting her and Silver with Vector of all characters is so random and strange. Instead of just offering a fully fleshed out Team Chaotix as well as Team Rose, they throw Silver and Blaze with whatever meathead is left, and again it's Vector, so no Espio and Charmy because SEGA clearly only cares to offer the bare minimum of who's popular, and that means Silver and Blaze over them. Sometimes I wish they'd just create a new "third wheel" character that they can slap in with Blaze and Silver as the power guy to avoid these awkward shoehorn match-ups, but then that'd probably mean no Chaotix at all. Honestly, they could've offered better teams than this, but that would entail MORE teams, and cheap SEGA can't/won't cough it up.

    Sonic Live Action Movie "Use the Schwartz"

    With all of the focus on human characters nobody gives a rip about, I'd prefer they not throw in any more Sonic characters. I have so little faith in this bomb being anything more than utter garbage that I'd rather they not sully any of the other characters, thanks.

    Vector, huh? It's been some time seen we've seen him on a wallpaper, so that's cool. However, I'm a little worried about Sticks and her fate, since there's only three wallpapers left and there's no way two of them aren't Rouge and Silver. The third is likely Eggman, though there have been years with no Eggman wallpaper. I like the variety and seeing characters like Omega and Vector get some long awaited love is nice, but darn it if I'm not still rooting for a Sticks wallpaper since she's seen one every year since her debut, if I am not mistaken, and if she doesn't see one this year I'm going to fear if it's a sign of an attempt to slowly phase her out since Boom is pretty much dead. 😕

    Team Sonic Racing - Team Gameplay Spotlight

    This clip of a level and characters we've already seen is the promised news for this week, huh? It's Forces all over again with the absolutely boring and barebones news drops, likely reflecting a boring and barebones game, just like Forces. I hope I am wrong. I guess we'll have to wait until Gamescom for more. I can't say I am impressed with the gameplay, art, dialogue, or tiny roster, that's for sure.

    Eh, I personally am enjoying this blank slate approach. For once it feels like the comics are an extension to the games and more accurately represents the franchise as a whole. Archie was so cluttered with characters and felt so detached from the games that it was hard for me to get into, honestly. I do like the Freedom Fighters and don't necessarily want them to just vanish forever, but by the same token I greatly prefer the look and feel of the new characters in IDW and the potential for more focus on the existing game cast rather than FFs. I'm conflicted. I know I definitely want to see the classic game characters at some point, however.
