  1. Whatever problems I might have with Pokémon Sword and Shield, at least I know the music will be fire

  2. What's the general consensus on IDW Sonic's second year so far? First year lost me, and while some of the solicits sounded interesting, I haven't had any desire to pick up the comic.

      It's a little more interesting to me, but I'm not caring as much as I did with Archie.

      It's getting more interesting but still falling into Year One's formula a bit too much. Ay the very least, the last two issues are promising more of a formula break but unless they stick with it, it still has felt a bit too teamup of the week.

      feels about the same to me, which is "ok, but not great"

  3. It's weird I've gotten to a point that I have a really hard time playing 2D platformers except for Sonic anymore.

      let me tell you about a little video game called Bubsy

  4. It seems pretty murky. It's possible he may have ownership of the stories--the scripts and the art. Depends on what stories he managed to actually secure the copyrights for when this all started (iirc, Sega either secured or at least attempted to file for the copyrights of the Knuckles series when this all broke years ago), and it's entirely possible Butler may have signed over his rights to the artwork anyway. I believe Butler was still a regular with Archie in one way or the other during and after this, so he may not have gotten involved in this mess. That's just a guess on my part though. I'm not sure how he's legally covered if the stories involved Sonic, Knuckles, Sally, et al., but I've long since given up trying to make sense of this.
  5. Honestly, I bare minimum just want the stuff Archie was planning to publish/had solicited. Specifically, if I had to pick anything, I'd just put out the Freedom Fighter arc that we should've gotten for Sonic Universe and #292 which was the lead-in for that and would show Sonic and the FF parting ways for a time. It could be rewritten a bit to serve as a nice little send-off, promising there's always adventure to be had like how any Sonic story ends. I don't think I'd really need anything more conclusive if I could just have the stuff I actually wanted and not the two filler arcs that were released before Sega pulled the plug.
  6. Maybe. The red clothing and the white hair is similar to Angelo, yeah, and reminded me of him. Oh, I can kind of see that with the similar outfits actually. Even the eye colors appear to match now that I see the higher res version and the outfit colors appear to match in the same places. I'm currently operating under the assumption they're all based on other player characters (Erdrick's alt appearing to be DQV's hero's colors and checking the others in the FS was my starting point) but I could see them referencing other party characters if the heroes' appearances matched enough with others. Makes me want to try to get back into these games at some point.
  7. Random observation: The more I look at him, the more interested I am in the Dragon Quest Hero. Was looking at his alts earlier and trying to place where the second colorations are probably based off of. I admit I'm really casual about Dragon Quest so I could always be a bit wrong with my guesses, but I can definitely recognize Erdrick's (DQIII) second color is an obvious reference to the DQV hero. Eight's (DQVIII) looks like it may be based on the second. I'm having a hard time placing Eleven's and Solo's (DQIV) colors though. With the Final Smash as a reference, I'm guessing Eleven's might be based on the default hero from DQX (the online game--you can also see him behind DQV's hero in the FS) but he doesn't have white hair. Solo's, from looking around, might be based on the first Dragon Quest hero (center in the FS). The coloration seems to match more closely compared to the DQVI hero (who I initially thought it might be, but the hair color doesn't match). For a character I wasn't particularly excited about, and wrote off for a variety of reasons, I can't help but be excited for him now that he's been revealed in full and there are just so many little things that I notice as a casual fan.
  8. Can we not do this hit and run posting of videos with obvious bait titles that's just going to stir up people in this topic? If you're not gonna follow it up with your own comments, it's just spam as far as I'm concerned. And no, I'm not giving this views.
  9. The thing about the Pokémon being restricted is probably the most disappointing thing I've heard about any new Pokémon game. Game should have been delayed another year so they could have worked all this shit out. I'm hoping that the other 'mons will be patched in over time to make up for this (lol), but I'm honestly expecting that we'll see an upgraded "full" game in a year like Game Freak loves to do and we'll all be told to "keep up." It's pretty maddening because the base games typically don't have more than 300 Pokémon available under normal circumstances--to get anything older or that's been ignored for a while, you have to transfer them in anyway and you don't get to do that until the postgame where you're probably doing things for competitive purposes or battle facilities. I don't give a shit about the National Pokédex so if it's gone, fine. I don't really agree with removing Pokémon though. Shame too, because what I've seen of the game so far looks great but this definitely puts a damper on things for me. I'd like to bring some of the Battle Tree Pokémon I raised to the next gen, but now I don't even know if some of them will be able to make the jump.
  10. I'll happily eat crow for my naysaying about Dragon Quest. He seemed just a little too lofty with all the different rights, and if I can be perfectly honest, I was hesitant about him being in because I didn't like the idea of a shithead like Sugiyama profiting off of this from his music. But, separate the art from the artist, I guess. The Hero looks great, and I was really impressed with the callbacks that I could actually recognize. I was especially excited that the eighth hero as an alt, and was then even more surprised to see the fourth and third. Then I saw the fifth as part of a final smash and fucking lost it. I'm really pleased even if he wouldn't have been a personal pick (if we really were gonna do a Toriyama designed character, Crono would've been my pick). But what makes me absolutely giddy is seeing Banjo and Kazooie make their way into the roster. If there was any third party character I really wanted and felt deserved to be a part of Smash Bros., Banjo was definitely as the top. So, so happy to see them back and I can't wait to see more of them. These were much, much better reveals than Joker was for me and if these are the best in the pass, hell, I'll just buy these two and call it a day.

  13. That issue was colored by Josh and Aimee Ray, who were regular colorists around then so it wasn't unique to any particular colorist. Yeah, Penders does it a lot too, but it's not really a surprise his approach is probably on the dated side. Archie around this time also was just obsessed with digital techniques that were sometimes a detriment to the art. Just look at most of Spaz's covers that have tons of overlays and transparencies that are confused and muddled with the coloring and you'll probably see it.
  14. Hey there AnonymousGameCritic, just giving you a heads up you're welcome to update the current thread you made with more findings. It was moved to the Green Hill Zone sub-forum, which is where Sonic-related discussion threads go (not sure if you noticed or not). Since we don't really need two threads about the same subject, I'll be locking this for now. Feel free to contact me or another moderator if you have any questions! I'll probably give this a view myself later since I'd like to see some of this early stuff.
  15. I think about Nichijou a lot.

    1. TCB


      There's a dub coming right

    2. Zaysho


      Yeah. BD is due out next month.

      Actually kinda pissed about that because I bought the sub-only release last year, but I'll probably end up double-dipping when it's discounted.
