  1. Things you'll never get tired of in Sonic

    Honestly, just seeing the characters on screen. It's such a minor thing but I'm the kind of person who likes to marvel at the simple act of video gaming bringing to life characters and personas that don't really exist in a medium that allows me to actually interact with them on some level. It's so small and can be applied to literally any video game but Sonic's my favorite series so it's the one it matters the most to me I suppose.
  2. Forces story: what would you like to see.

    A story where it's tone managed to stand within the very easy to hit and very common to see middle-ground that they used to be able to skirt around without much effort back in the Adventure games and again with Unleashed and Black Knight. A utilizing of the villains and locales they visit that make sense for the narrative going forward rather than being strung together like a level list where you hop from place to place without any fanfare or explanation. A concerted effort to make it seem like the characters are all contributing to something other than exposition with the exposition they do provide being something about how their situation is going and updates on what's happening around them rather than a re-explanation of the game's mechanics. Jokes that are funny. Drama that feels earned. And something that justifies "Classic" Sonic's presence. I have a strong desire to see my most favorite idea for a Sonic the Hedgehog story, that being one where Eggman finally takes over the world, to not go to waste.
  3. You want hits and game overs? Just wait until I get my hands on this game. It's been a decade and I still can't beat Sonic 3 and Knuckles.
  4. The Hard-Boiled Heavies Appreciation Topic

    I don't have the game but I can already tell I'd like them just looking at their pictures.
  5. Sonic Mania SPOILERS/Impressions Thread

    I want to be positive but I'm just a big sad sack. I want both sides of the Sonic series to be good and for them to eventually both earn the right to be celebrated. However some of the headlines and comments I've seen about Mania with regards to how the series should be going forward just makes me feel sad. Not to mention worried considering how kneejerk Sega's reaction to success is. I'm so down I didn't even realize I was listening to Infinite's theme right now. That's kinda scary.
  6. Sonic Mania SPOILERS/Impressions Thread

    Even when everyone's loving a Sonic game, I can't feel happy. Growing up a 3D fan is the worst feeling in the world right now. I do sometimes wonder what it must be like to be the gaming community's equivalent of being normal.
  7. Sonic Mania: Opening Animation (Minor Spoilers)

    Dear lord. I don't even really know what to say. As a fan who came into the series through Adventure 2: Battle and couldn't really get into the Classics, I'm extremely jealous. But at the same time I was happy enough to almost shed a tear. Articulating what I'm feeling might be impossible at the moment. All I do know is that I want more. New Sonic anime please?
  8. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    I felt it was a given that they wouldn't be used from the get go but I don't wish to keep people from holding out hope or waiting for more official confirmation if they feel they must. Whatever works for you is the method you should choose to do. At the moment I'm convinced though.
  9. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    For some reason when I imagine this happening, I feel like the twist would be that it's just a really cruelly simulated world that Ansem the Wise or the Mad Hatter created to trap Tails inside of. And then it turns into this nightmarish Coraline inspired hellscape that Tails has to escape from.
  10. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    I've gotta be honest, I really don't see those elements being gone as that big of an issue in terms of whether or not the book will sell. There's plenty of Sonic media out there with their own way of handling and doing things that lack the nuance of putting everything and the Kitchen sink into their continuity. The way Archie did it was commendable and certainly unique but I don't think it was the ultimate deciding factor in whether or not the book would sell. Just make a book using the Sonic characters, have good art, have some really well-written stories, promote it well, and the rest should take care of itself.
  11. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    Alright. So long as we're cool.
  12. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    I'm not sure how what I said isn't an appropriate response to that. It doesn't seem like you're saying anything different here.
  13. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    Saying it's not as bad as people are making it out to be isn't the same as brushing it off completely.
  14. Archie Sonic Main Discussion

    They also managed to get away with it when it came to people like me who didn't care about either of their feelings for one another.
  15. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    Actually looking back through it, posts that are particular venomous seem to be a vocal minority. There's certainly a lot who don't really like the Freedom Fighters and don't wish for them to come back (me included) but I've definitely gone out of my way to be as respectful as I can at least. It's probably just a case of lumping the sentiment of wanting them gone with the posts that are a lot more harsh. That feeling that people are against you because they share an opposite opinion is a rather strong one, regardless of what the reality may be. That coupled with how recent this loss is, I can see how emotions concerning how the response is perceived can be skewed a bit.
