  1. Every time I see Vulpix Pokemon merch I just NEED it.

      ALL Vulpix are good

      Wish they had more Seel merch. I guess I'm getting a Dewgong cup for Xmas so,  close enough. 

  2. As I think about it, I'm going to laugh if Ian finds a way to revive Conquering Storm and bring her into the IDW comic.


    At least until I remember she'd probably be easier to pass approvals than bringing back the Freedom Fighters.

    1. Ryannumber1Santa


      Is there anything that says it's impossible for comic characters to be in yet? 

      I mean, I'm aware it'll likely be the game characters only but I don't find it outside the realm of possibility that Ian could convince them to allow use of SatAM, AoStH and Archie characters down the line.

      Considering Ian and co had to fight to keep the Freedom Fighters in the post-SGW continuity, I wouldn't say their chances are particularly great.

  3. Nope. They were exclusively on Sonic Channel's site but there were some fan translations floating around.
  4. I have most of the Sonic Game Gear games, and yet Sonic Labyrinth is always the one sitting out in the open on my desk.

      rolling around at the speed of sound.

      rolling...rolling and ROLLING

  5. You know, I don't like Pen's actual drawings or designs or anything, but he usually has solid linework. The coloring completely obliterates that and I don't understand how someone with the level of experience he has simply cannot see what an assault on the eyes this is. Like, come on, man, hire a colorist.
  6. Oh.



    I'm addicted to Infinite's theme again.

      ^....that came out extremely sexual lol

      I seriously need a 30 minute extension of the full theme, so I can put it on loop, and listen to it infinitely.

  7. Sonic Mania Nominated for Several E3 Awards

    There is a context and place to when these reviews are done. 2006 ranked better on Metacritic because, besides Shadow the Hedgehog, SEGA's goodwill with Sonic hadn't been completely burned off yet and it was more in the vein of the more popular Adventure games. In hindsight, the game isn't up to snuff. I remember one review actually rated it fairly high because they expected a patch to fix certain issues the game had (IIRC that either wasn't delivered or the patch did jackshit--I haven't played '06 so I don't know its history as well). When Unleashed came out, we saw a Sonic Team that was focused on making a better, not rushed product but it was also a Sonic game with a random, unnecessary gimmick that took up half the game and that hurt its standing, even if technically it's not the broken mess some of its predecessors are. Sonic 4 Episode I reviewed well because SEGA sold the nostalgia element so hard and I don't recall reviewers really caring about the things fans did. It was a straightforward game with nothing overly offensive about it, especially in comparison to what came before (and I say this as someone who likes the games that got trashed). The novelty wore off two years later, and after the release of Generations, and episode II just turned out to not be what people wanted. And, naturally, after Mania, the classic segments of Generations will likely not look good in hindsight (though probably not to the degree of Forces'). I don't think they're "mixing it up" so much as standards and expectations change over time.

      k that was bad


  9. I remember I researched this a couple years ago, and that was more or less what was said. I believe it was actually Clayton Emery (the co-writer for the introduction of Rob o' the Hedge) who brought this up and wrote on Penders's behalf to the copyright office. I didn't realize his forum was down, and the search function on this site doesn't seem to want to give me what I'm sure was a long post talking about this, but I can confirm this is the case. Also, Pen wants to put out a Knuckles Omnibus? I'd want this because he's the reason we didn't get complete reprints of that series (I don't care how bad it got, I wanted a complete set) but the man is dreaming if he thinks he'll have permission to publish that regardless of what he actually owns. Well, that and I can't see myself wanting to give him a penny.
  10. Sonic Skylinne (look like Sonic Boom)

    My understanding this is your idea for a Sonic game, so it's more appropriate for the Showcase section. Secondly, if you are going to post about it, you need more info, screenshots--something tangible if you want people to be interested. Sorry, going to have to lock this.
  11. Is Sonic Boom finally dead?

    @JovahexeonXMAS Tron Bonne Enough is enough. These lame attempts at tone policing and one-upping people over their opinions and how they state them has gotten tiring, and is the source of the derail in this thread. There is absolutely no reason this argument should have dragged on as long as it did, over something as minor as someone saying they wouldn't mind if the show ends. It's ridiculous and was further off-topic than someone explaining a specific thing they didn't like about the show (and the accusations of hypocrisy when they called you out for being off-topic--your response being to further derail things--are especially uncalled for). You can absolutely disagree with someone's post without this, and you can take that from someone who's realized that about his own past behavior. Instances like this: are not at all dissimilar to what you've been spoken to before by staff. And you've displayed this behavior in other threads, including the Forces review threads (immediately calling people's criticisms of Famitsu's score "vilifying" the writers). For these reasons, it's strike time. You need to chill. If you have any questions, you're welcome to contact the staff or take it up with an administrator. This isn't going any farther. @dbzfan7 It's best to either just drop this or report it if a user is dogging you unnecessarily in the future. This has dragged on for too long and this thread needs to get back on topic (and, for the record, specific criticisms about the show seem fine to me).
  12. Could Eggman truly kill Sonic if he wished

    Eggman launched him into space in an exploding space pod in SA2. He dropped him from space all the way to Earth Sonic's world in Unleashed. I don't think he's incapable of doing whatever he can to take out Sonic, just that something always gets in his way to prevent that or Sonic is just resourceful and quick thinking enough to get around whatever Eggman throws at him.
  13. Waitin' for my game to get here like


    1. Celestia


      I like how the cover is just the words "Comic Book."

    2. KHCast


      I like how while he’s running he’s holding nothing 

    3. Zaysho


      @Celestia I am expecting a box that just says "VIDEO GAME" on it tbh

    4. Ryannumber1Santa



      Comic Book was always one of my favourite comics. The complex and interesting mindset of Main Character was always great to see and kept me reading through the classic Story Arc arc. The best villain is of course Arch-Nemesis. They were a real contrast to Main Character.

  14. I can't wait for my copy of Xenoblade 2 to arrive today. Can't believe I'm getting it so quickly when Amazon projected its delivery to be a week later (I selected free shipping).


    ....don't expect to see me much tomorrow if this tracking info is accurate

    1. Kiah


      That’s okay Zay. That just means @Celestia can’t slack off as much if you won’t be here 😉

  15. This just reads as if the OP expects people who liked Mania to blindly follow Whitehead and crew if the game is very obviously isn't turning out well. It comes across as a "GOTCHA" as if you're trying to prove a point against a certain portion of the fanbase. Maybe that isn't the case, and you acknowledged as such, but I think regardless of your intention this topic was flawed and created under the assumption, in the situation as described in the OP, that people will buy the game regardless. I'm going to lock this now, since I don't think it's going to go any further and before this gets heated for no reason.
