  1. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    If we must have adaptations, I wouldn't at all be opposed to the idea of a Heroes, or Riders retelling, since I think there's a lot of story potential to tap into as a comic.
  2. Sonic Mania Reviews/Impressions Thread

    Nice to finally see a Sonic game not getting mauled, or dividing opinion so wildly. Too bad that may change with Forces And by the way, uh, what was that about Sonic "Never being great" IGN?
  3. Y'know, I'm not even buying Mania and I'm still somehow irked at the PC delay.  I mean, what's the matter releasing it now instead of making us wait another couple weeks?  Surely the reason can't be that major.

      They said it was for optimization. But who announces that four days before official release. That's something u announce a few weeks before release

    2. Marcello


      Better than releasing in a bad state and getting lambasted for it. Their timing of the announcement is unfortunate, but, I mean, it's only two weeks.

    3. QuantumEdge


      Still, they shouldn't have waited this long to say so.  Because I'm pretty sure it wasn't a "Oh, crud, this thing just popped up!" moment that's caused it.

      Going by the stream, part of the reason Aaron was late was that they were still discussing this. He could be lying, but who knows.

      Regardless it doesnt affect me. 


      The only thing i can think of is someone touched a piece of code last mintue for the pc version and they havent been able to fix it in time. But like I've said before I dont think this has nothing to do with the coding. This is all PR and legal contract issues


      They originally went with that Aaron overslept. But then Aaron said they have been in meetings since early morning

  4. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    No surprise at the NY Comic-Con appearance. Chances are we'll hear of the first lot of talent involved, maybe even see a glimpse of a #1 cover. Just... please don't let it be another one of those boring stock Sega covers, okay IDW?
  5. I'm not too big a fan of the Sonic 3 style special stages, but the rest look awesome. Really hope Taxman can someday build his way up to getting the chance at a full on 3D Sonic because clearly he has a better, clear cut vision that Sonic Team. I mean, he at least knows how to weaponise nostalgia better
  6. Could never have happened, I'm afraid, Ryan. Penders was way too attached to his side of the comic being in flawless shape, where any threat wasn't quite as big a deal. The Brotherhood were meant to be some benevolent, slightly edgy "Ends justify the means" type group, only to kinda backfire thanks to Penders not being able to properly write the behaviour to fit. The man's tonal and emotional understanding in storytelling is abysmal, quite frankly. It was never helped by his undying need to introduce some new supporting character every two pages, since he couldn't seem to be happy in working with what he already had. He was only dragging himself down, which really shows when you compare his Knuckles work to Karl Bollers' Return to Angel Island, where he simply used what was already there and made one of the best stories of one of the worst eras for the book.
  7. Voice acting legend June Foray has passed away, aged 99.

    She really left behind one hell of a career. I pretty much grew up listening to her voice as did a lot of people I'm sure. I know 99 is an impressive number, especially for someone who was still working, but like a lot of people I kinda hoped she'd keep going on and on.
  8. Dear god Ken, we've just lost our comics and you still want to kick us while we're down?
  9. Archie Sonic Hiatus Discussion

    So, late to the party, but I heard the news. I don't even know where to begin. I haven't been quite the long term fan. I only started reading them five years ago, but it didn't take long for me to be a giant fan. After watching this book last so long you start to think it might never end, only for it to crash and burn in one of the most poorly handled ways possible (for the record, I hope the subscribers get proper compensation for this). There are so many things I still wanted to see. Sonic making 300 issues, Universe making to 100, actually seeing what new directions Ian wanted to go in. All I can do now is feel thankful for what I did see. For all its phases of puns, poor art, bizzare sci-fi and bad romance, this comic knew when to improve, breath life back into forgotten faces, push boundaries and not be afraid in taking crazy risks. It was too good to die like this, not when it was so memorable. What's worse now though is the creative team being out of work. All those writers (besides Penders), artists, inkers, colourists and editors who had a hand in making the comic what it is deserve better and I sincerely hope their careers can keep on going brightly. As for the future of Sonic in this medium, all I can do is follow suit and hope he can make a comeback with someone not as much of a disorganised pudding head like Archie. Hopefully some of the old talent can make their comeback there. Thanks for the ride guys, it was a blast.
  10. The actual Sonic comics should not die, so that this... whatever the hell this actually is may live. I mean, I was never much of a fan of Geoff, but mother of god do I feel bad for him. I just don't know, or rather can't compute, how Ken does it, but he still surprises us further and further. It's like he's giving any comic making hopeful a 101 in what not to do. I can't find any redeeming quality except that he's using characters that are dead in the Sonic books, but at this point putting them out of their misery would be a better idea...
  11. So I came back from holiday with my family in the middle of the night, hoping to get some shut eye.  Trouble was, it seemed a pigeon fell down our chimney and spent a day or two throwing a guano party... --__--

      I was expecting the pigeon to have been roasted to death in the chimney to be honest. Though I suppose that only works if the fire was active.

    2. QuantumEdge


      Nah, we haven't had a fire there in ages.  Somehow it slipped around the fireguard and had free reign in the house.  Needless to say, we sent it on its way outside.

  12. Fist Bump is a constant reminder to wonder why the hell Crush 40 weren't drafted back in again.

      I'm guessing they're doing the ending/boss theme :0

      *final boss

    2. QuantumEdge


      That's what I'm praying for :P

    3. Cyrus


      They've been way too active in the last year to not do SOMETHING.



      Sonically active.

    4. QuantumEdge


      Well I'm not gonna get too excited.  I don't want to curse anything.

  13. On holiday in France now and while on the ferry I tried my brother's downloaded Sonic 1 on his tablet.  God, I absolutely hate touchscreen controls...

  14. Bit late, I know, but I finally got a few votes ready in my spare time Sonic Heroes
  15. Archie Sonic Hiatus Discussion

    The optimistic side of me yearns for it to be real, but I'm way too wary to get my hopes up. Until we get something to confirm this a little more, then I'm calling it fake, though a damn good fake I must say.
