  1. I’m not 100% on my Sailor Moon lore, but aren’t Sally Moon, Tuxedo Knux, and Chibi Rose’s official counterparts supposed to be mother, father and daughter?
  2. Do the Team Sonic Racing shorts fit into game continuity?

  3. There’s a thread I want to post at some point that involves multiple spoiler tags. The only reason I’m holding off is because of what will inevitably happen.

  4. The Archie version of Tekno the Canary is a disk jockey.
  5. GUN as an overall unit just failed epically in SA2.

    They should have been fully aware that Rouge was infiltrating Eggman’s inner circle, and yet they still treated her as if she was a genuine threat (sending Flying Dog after her, leaving her locked in the vault, etc...)

    One could argue that they were doing it to keep up appearances, so that Eggman didn’t get suspicious, but that nuance completely flew out the window when they basically left her to die.

    1. Diogenes


      isn't it implied she's working for the president, not gun?

    2. Wraith


      Diogenes is correct, and even if she was working for GUN I feel like that her double agent status wouldn't be known to lower ranking soldiers anyway.

    3. JosepHenry


      I always saw Rouge in SA2 as working JUST for the president, not for GUN. Makes more sense even.

    4. Plumbers_Helper


      Yeah, her working for GUN wasn't a thing until Sonic 06, in Sonic Heroes she wonders how the President is doing and is seen again working only for the President in Sonic Battle. The President did order her to work with GUN in Sonic X, where it's elaborated that there was a hidden corrupt section of GUN trying to keep their involvement with Project Shadow a secret. Normally I wouldn't include information from what is clearly a different continuity, but in this case I think it's worth mentioning because Sonic X did include several cut scenes and dialogue originally meant for both Adventure games.

      I just mentioned this in a previous status update oddly enough.

    5. E-122-Psi


      Even if she was, it's kind of easy to handwave anything about GUN since they were clearly working in full blown self preservation mode the whole time, regardless of the possibilities of those around them. They were willing to throw SONIC literally under the bus just to keep Project Shadow from getting out and had previously committed mass genocide, so doing the same to one of their own agents would be child's play for them.

  6. I love Genesis, if only for the nostalgic memories it brings up. And I’m not talking about “classic Sonic game” memories. That general period in the fandom was absolutely nuts, with whether or not Sally had indeed died at the end of 225 being a hot topic for a solid four months, with responses from both sides being pure gold; I recall how on Bumbleking there was a thread opened up that was dedicated exclusively to making fun of it all. As for the story itself; I still liked it. The way it played on my suspense was pretty well done imo. There was a hint of tension that came from seeing Sonic and co initially going about their new life remaining completely unaware that something big was happening right under their noses, with those tensions ramping up when the old memories started to leak through. I remember getting proper chills when this panel suddenly popped up in part 3.
  7. Are signatures still a thing here?

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Indeed they are.

    2. Sean


      I turned them off like a decade ago

    3. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Yeah. But I turned them off pretty recently and can't say I've missed them. Personally I think this forum's signature requirements are too lax and can easily lead to massively tall signatures. I want to focus on the actual discussion going on, not on people's huge sigs. Which is too bad because I think they're a fun feature in general.

    4. Polkadi~☆


      I've cut down on my signature more and more over time. We don't need big signatures, and I certainly don't need to put everything I like in there.

      I wondered because I can’t see any signatures anywhere, but the “Avatar and Signature” topic is still a thing.

    Michael Gallaghar wrote this story. Does that make it canon?

  9. Whenever I see people talk about their ideal multi-canon Sonic crossover, it usually consists of all of the different Sonic’s meeting up.

    I personally disagree. No, with a crossover like that, I’d much rather it be about one single Sonic teaming up with multiple heroes that appear exclusively in outside continuities.

    Let’s say, for example, IDW did a “Sonic comic crossover event” where the three major Sonic comic canons (IDW, Archie, and Fleetway) crossed over. I personally wouldn’t want it to be a big clusterfuck of three different Sonics and alternate versions of a bunch of other characters.

    Instead, I’d have the IDW versions of Sonic and co merely teaming up with characters who appear exclusively in Archie and StC (who come in from their respective universes), with IDW exclusive characters like Tangle and Whisper being on Sonic’s side for the sake of having a pure IDW rep.

      I figured most people's ideal multi-canon "crossover" is the one where most everyone lives in one canon and there's just one version of every main character, taking practicality out of the equation of course.

    2. Plumbers_Helper


      That does sound cool, but if the IDW writers had permission to use characters from other Sonic media , I'd rather see them adapted into the IDW series proper, rather then in a one time only cross over event.


  10. Blue from Blue’s Clues is a girl.

    1. Miragnarok


      In fact Periwinkle is the only male of the major animal characters, other than the Purple Kangaroo.

      Maybe I shouldn't be, but I'm still surprised that this surprises some people.

    3. Kuzu


      I've known this for years...

  11. Pick one

      20th anniversary logo has a cool use of negative space.

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Are we picking the event and related games, or just the logo?

    3. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Yeah 20th for me

      It's a really arbitrary and strange thing to choose between... but fine, whatever. In terms of the "big" games, 25th for Mania is obviously the best and 15th for '06 is obviously the worst. I'd put SA2 above Generations, but the two can go either way. 

      As for the celebration, I wasn't even ten years old when Sonic celebrated his 10th birthday, didn't have any platform newer than a Mega Drive and wasn't active in any online communities. Can't really rate it as I wasn't involved. 15th Anniversary was basically just another year for Sonic, but the 15th Anniversary logo was slapped on everything and the best game to come out with that branding was Riders, followed by Rivals. Not the best showing all in all, even if I do really like Riders. The 25th Anniversary had a really cool party with a the most incredible music, but it felt so arbitrary when there were no games released around the anniversary and everything just came so much later. Boom Fire & Ice was the only game that calendar year. The best is obviously the 20th Anniversary. A great year for celebrations. Generations, Classic Sonic and the positive buzz were good enough all on their own, but a special mention goes out to the Generations demo that was launched on Sonic's actual birthday. Good move, SEGA (even if the inevitable data mine screwed over marketing plans). 2011 was a good time to be a Sonic fan. 

      And logos... I really don't have an opinion. They're all fine, I guess? 

  12. Only problem is they’re unable to ship to certain locations.
  13. Body count of each Eggman:

    Game: 0

    Boom: 0

    AoStH: 0

    StC: 0, or very, very few

    SatAM: a few, probably

    Underground: a few, probably

    Archie (original): hundreds, maybe thousands

    Archie (Eggman incarnation): ∞

    1. Miragnarok


      Actually, Fleetway Eggman did send a few Badniks, likely with Organic Batteries, into a furnace.

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Miragnarok the comic hasn’t been all that consistent with when badniks do and don’t have organic batteries, so that’s debateable.

    3. DanJ86


      His actions in Adventure 2 couldn't possibly have led to no injuries or death. He blew up a whole Island and theirs's bound to be collateral damage from the global panic caused by his message.

    4. Plumbers_Helper


      AOSTH Robotnik did transform Black Beard the Pirate into a robot, by the end of the episode Sonic shreds him into ribbons...does that count? Robotnik took a ways his humanity and free will, but Sonic is the one that destroyed him...does that mean AOSTH Sonic has a body count? Black Beard as a robot still shows up for the Sonic says segment at the end, was he rebuilt? Did this segment chronologically happen earlier in the episode and we, the audience, didn't get to see it until now? Are the Sonic Says segments even canon within the show?


    5. Stay at Home Ultima

      Stay at Home Ultima

      Adding to what Dan said, there definately would've been a body count when Eggman split the planet during Unleashed.

      ... Given how "well" Disney has represented gay characters in their films thus far, I'm not holding my breath.

    3. JosepHenry


      Come on the short is freaking harmless.

      Is a small thing.

      Can't we just enjoy things please?

      @Balding Spider SparkShorts are all independently made films produced by Pixar. Disney has nothing to do with their content beyond streaming it.
