    Got my first covid jab, but unfortunately I won't be able to get my second one because I said "lovely" and "thank you" at the same time to the person administering it which of course resulted in "love you", so now I have to self-isolate forever

    Somehow I forgot that all avatars here are Twitter-style circles now. Even worse than being confined to squares. Sometimes I reminisce about the old IPBoard where you could have a rectangle as long as you needed it to be for avatars.

    It's not like Sonic is my whole life, I'm playing a lot of other games right now, but the silence is shocking regardless.

    I really wouldn't mind at all if the humans in Sonic games looked like those characters in Balan Wonderworld. I have never quite understood why some people are so against the idea of humans in Sonic games. 
    Sana for one example:
    Or Leo for another:
    They would just fit in so well. And that's really no surprise considering who designed all of these characters in the first place. 
    I always liked the Pixar-esque humans of Unleashed and certainly wouldn't mind seeing those designs again. This style blends in with the design is Sonic and the other anthro characters even better though. It leans more into a Japanese, anime look. SA1 had verrrry 90s anime human designs.
    Anything other than the hyper realistic humans of 06, basically. And SA2 and Shadow didn't do a particularly good job of it either. If they look too realistic like in those games, then off course is going to feel weird to a lot of the audience. But if the humans are designed to match the anthros, everything would blend together seamlessly. And the humans can be designed as creatively and stylised as the Sonic and the rest. The Balan human characters would be pretty perfect, I think. The only problem with the Balan characters is poor animation in 3D, where they all have the 'mascot suit' and 'grapefruit hands' problem from half-arsed mo-cap.

    Ever since I watched that Sonic in animation video I can't stop thinking about the term thry used to judge the 3Dmodels as the "mascot suit problem" because it's so perfectly captures why I just really hate the 06 models in terms of how they look and animate because the characters just feel so lifeless

    I know this comes down to personal taste, but for me what makes a bad Sonic Zone isn't necessarily hard layouts, water or weird gimmicks on their own, but in what ways the zone can be tackled on repeat playthroughs. Everyone's first time through Labyrinth is going to suck, but if you stick to it and learn the level eventually you can carve a path to get through without having to put up with it (both acts 1 and 3 have shortcuts that bypass most of the levels).
      Then there are zones like Wacky Workbench or Oil Ocean where no matter how much time you put into them you always have to deal with their crap. You will never be able to avoid getting bounced to the moon or dealing with a zone with so many paths through the blend together and you can never tell where the heck you're going.
       Oil Ocean followed up with Metropolis ( a half and half case, one can get a good groove going through the layout but the badniks, well you know how they are) are one of two reasons Sonic 2 is my least favorite of the original quartet. In comparison once you take the time to learn them Labyrinth and Carnival Night become non issues, and while Wacky Workbench is indeed worse then both the Sonic 2 zones the other six zones make up for it in my book. The other reason I like Sonic 2 the least are the Special Stages. They may look cool but between the slippery control needing either super reflexes or spot on memory I find them the weakest of the classic Special Stages.

    i genuinely hate metropolis zone with all of my being
    not only is it the worst zone in the entire mega drive line up, not only is it frustrating as fuck no matter how well you know the level, but it also signifies the drop off in quality for the rest of sonic 2

    The disparities in Sonic character writing between regions is the funniest thing to me. 
    A character that's not overly emotional in Japan suddenly becomes very emotional when localized over here. 
    I think it has something to do with the fact that American audiences find the unemotional and formal writing from Japan to be "boring", so they gotta "spice it up"
     
    I dunno, but it's really weird.

    Hi everyone!
    I haven't posted much music news lately. Mostly I've been doing things for Sonic Legacy, and a few other secret projects, as well as just waiting for others to be able to move on. 
    I currently have 4 projects finished and ready to be released in due time, and I'm working on a few other projects currently in progress, some I can talk about but some secret ones too.
    I'd love to say that big things are happening, but I'm still ashamed that I don't have a single publication for 2021 yet. And in fact I feel like things are slowing down drastically. But stay tuned, hopefully sooner than later I'll be able to do something.

    So, fun fact about Sonic!
    With SA1, there was a clear focus in marketing Sonic towards Japan, with new designs for the characters to cater to that audience, and lots of high budget marketing and events. It generated a media storm for the franchise that not even Sonic's original Mega Drive release managed in Japan.
    Well, it fucking worked, because Sonic Adventure is the best selling Sonic game at over 430,000 units in Japan on the Dreamcast, with the next best selling Sonic game being Sonic Advance at just over 200,000 units.
