  1. Topic doesn't have much substance beyond listing what characters people consider important with no explanation. Going to lock this.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    Okay time to rerail the conversation. I don't feel like drawing the attention of whatever Internet mob is screaming in social media these days and I'm certainly not going to allow links to random people on Twitter just to paint a target on their backs. Let's move on. @ShadowSJG while it's fine if you wanted to bring this up, I seriously question your intentions because you ALWAYS seem to have a link to someone saying something you don't like. Please stop doing this if you are going to bring up these subjects on this forum. Next time I'll be inclined to put you on modqueue.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    She's numbered as a new character. She might have some similarities to Villager but she appears to be her own character with her own moves.

    Nintendo Direct Megathread

    I think the most exciting announcement, after Luigi's Mansion 3 and Animal Crossing, has got to be the PS1/PS2 era Final Fantasy games making their way to the Switch. I have both VII and IX's PS1 releases, and have been meaning to sit down with them again... looks like next year's Switch releases will be the perfect opportunity. Here's hoping the ports are good and aren't overpriced. On the flipside, Nintendo's presentation for their Online service did not inspire much confidence. I dunno, I've been uneasy with how cagey they've been about details, and I feel like, outside of a visual demonstration of what we already know, it's nothing I care about. And the cloud saving (which, aside from being able to play Smash worth anything, seems to be their huge selling point) bothers me--just give me a local, microSD option, Nintendo. The majority of your players aren't going to be cheating or hacking anyway. Cripes.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    With regards to Geno in particular, Sakurai seems to have wanted to use him as far back as Brawl but things just didn't work out in the past. It could go either way, but I like to think they'll be able to work it out this time. Square definitely seems on-board with Smash since they at least licensed out other things like the costumes in the first place.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    Sorry if the wording was confusing, I wasn't dismissing AT upgrades in favor of the costume theory. I meant that I think both are likely places to draw from. And we have at least one example of the former in the new roster with Dark Samus. I'd be pretty surprised if neither Skull Kid nor Shadow made it in; Shadow is almost a given at this point, and Skull Kid is a possibility with the villain focus/Kid Link and Termina coming back--though I admit I'm stretching with the Melee material association.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    When they switched to the Animal Crossing Switch teaser and Tom Nook's lights flickered, I expected he was going to be offed for second Smash character. In addition to possible AT upgrades, a few of the newcomers appear to have been drawn from Mii Fighter Costumes: K. Rool, Chrom, the Inklings and even Isabelle. It's possible the remaining base roster will be drawn from there as well (I've seen Geno's name passed around a lot).

    Welcome to Animal Crossing - Switch, 2019

    I haven't actually played an Animal Crossing since the GCN version--I still play the GCN version. To be honest I never had much incentive to try the other games in the series because I enjoy the GCN game that much and I didn't want to deal with the tedious town upkeep or anything with other games. I did hear great things about New Leaf, which even addresses stuff like that, but I passed on it. Now a new game is coming to Switch and I couldn't be happier.
  9. To be honest, I find this video pretty misleading. The entire thing is hinged on some conspiracy that Flynn hates the FF and that he has any real control or say over the comic--everything he does has to be approved by Sega. No amount of clout he has within the fandom is going to change that. Even the quotes and tweets this video maker referenced seem to point to their use is out of his hands, and that it's up to Sega. He and the editors have not said anything definitive because that's basic PR; things can change and it will be out of their control. Just look at what happened when the Hooligans were namedropped at one point. I am not even going to touch the point about Penders. That will always be a no-go. I'm not seeing much come out of this that won't either be dismissing Archie and telling FF fans to get over it (again) or people getting mad at the wrong people, so I am just going to close this.

  12. No one is "acting above the rules" and you needing an image that literally states the intent is your own problem. Sean also has a pretty good history of just fucking around with people. And the context was pretty self-explanatory. If they was seriously looking to insult or belittle pppp, I don't think they'd respond with Kizuna Ai of all things jlkajsdlakd I mean by this logic, Celestia should have banned me by now. And with this, the matter is to be dropped. Any issues you have with moderation can be taken up privately with us or with admins. This topic is to move on and further responses about the above will just be deleted.

    I'm getting sick of the main four

    Man, I take a few days away from this site and I come back to multiple complaints about something two moderators have told you to stop. I mean, it's in the post you quoted so you know good and well what I was talking about. I really don't care what you're finding in an unfiltered image search on Tumblr to back up this terrible argument. I also don't even think fan art, in a general sense, is a good metric. People can and do like obscure things. They like to make things about those or commission people to make things about those. This isn't new. And more importantly, it's not relevant, and the specific things you were bringing up are still inappropriate. The next time you start with this, all to put some fake numbers behind your blatant fanboyism, you're getting a strike and a suspension. Yeah, yeah. You can make your point without egging other people on (not that they took the bait but I've had enough reports to sift through in this topic I feel like pointing this out too).

    I'm getting sick of the main four

    This really had nothing to do with Shadowlax's point regarding popularity, and you have been asked to stop bringing up how much/what kind of porn a character gets to measure their popularity. Like, not only is this a reach, it's really not appropriate for this board. Never mind your post is also riddled with tons of fanboyism to quickly dismiss any possibility someone else brings up. Enough. Not in trouble or anything, but I'd appreciate it if you didn't publicly threaten other members with reporting. If you believe there is an issue, please just hit the report button. Nothing wrong with arguing against an irrelevant point or just dismissing it however.

    A Solo Sonic Game

    I can take or leave Sonic being the only playable character at this point. In the past I was heavy against it because I really do love the extended cast and want to see them in more active roles. That hasn't really changed, I guess, but if we're talking gameplay I think I mind just a bit less if the focus is on Sonic only than I used to be. My only real concern is how it's executed, and I suppose I'm jaded to the fact that some of the most notable 3D games of the last decade have featured Sonic plus a variation of him; Unleashed morphs him into the Werehog with a beat 'em up style gameplay, Generations and Forces include an interpretation of his Genesis counterpart with a sketchy level of faithfulness to how he plays, and Forces also has a nameless, self-insert character who pretty much plays like Sonic with a grappling hook (yes, I'm aware Forces has Shadow DLC, but I'm talking base game). The worst part about these examples, to me, is that they make the games feel padded due to them being required to actually progress. It's something that the games struggled with even when they included different characters (SA2, I love you, but you are actually the worst offender); as far as 3D games go, I think Black Knight is the only notable exception with how it handled its playable characters (they fit into a singular gameplay style and have a couple unique qualities, and they're also entirely optional). But assuming they did another true solo Sonic (and we have games like Secret Rings, Colors, and Lost World to know it's a thought that's crossed the minds at Sonic Team, even if those games are far from ideal), I still wouldn't want to see other characters removed from the plot just to focus on Sonic and Eggman. Not saying you can't tell a story that's just those two going at it and have it not be fun, but, well, I like the extended cast so I'd still want to see them in an active role in the story (beyond yapping at you over the radio from their homebase). You can even rotate the existing cast and pick certain characters that fit a particular outline--so many games in the series seem to feature Sonic traveling, it makes sense that he'd run into other characters and they're dragged into whatever is going on because Eggman is there too. I think it'd be refreshing from either the EVERYONE IS HERE approach or only focusing on the classic/most popular characters. Sonic can have some very fun interactions with new and different personalities to bounce off of and working with him in the story without detracting from the intended Sonic-only gameplay. No need to sideline them or get rid of them altogether when you can just find new things for them to do and take breaks from certain ones to give others a chance to shine. I think it's something that can carry itself for a few games in that way too, so you can keep mixing and matching the cast allowing fans to see their favorite characters in some capacity while people who don't want to play as too many other things get a more focused game that is presumably ideal in its design. And, who knows, if it works out, then there's always the Black Knight option of throwing in the characters for that respective game (or even series) as optional characters to tool around with after the fact.
