  1. It took almost a decade, but Ash finally found his way to Unova’s Desert Resort today.

    1. TCB


      Given the nature of how this season of the anime goes, hope he meets up with more past faces


      ...or did he already do that idk

      The closest we’ve had is him watching a championship match between Lance and Leon and he recognises Lance. Otherwise we’re not holding our breaths.

    3. TCB


      yeah sounds about right

  2. Is Sonic Spinball canon to the overall game universe?

    1. Ferno


      given that its the "american funky action" game not made by sonic team, I don't think they count it

    2. Diogenes


      yes but it's a dream sonic had after some bad chili dogs

      I think the SATAM characters a the clearly Assface Sonic design answers that question for you.

  3. Can we talk about the fact that West Side Island is often depicted as much bigger than South Island in most media, and yet the latter somehow has way more zones crammed in?

    1. Blue Blood

      We could also instead about the fact that these islands are rarely shown consistently and are poorly established within the game series as a whole, and therefore talking about the number of zones within each relative to their size is arbitrary.

      South Island has the benefit of being in way more games, so more additional zones could be added to it over time.

      Westside Island probably does have more zones that we haven't seen in Sonic 2. Mania introduced Mirage Saloon for example, which logically has to be on Westside since it's on the same landmass as Oil Ocean.

      So there could be yet more zones on Westside that we just haven't seen so far.

      Like Sonic Team even remembers South and West Side Islands, let alone tell the difference between the two. Pratically every region in the world has a Green Hills and Chemical Plant at this point.

  4. This is a neat idea.

  5. This discussion about Eggman’s potential body count in different media made me realise that Archie Eggman technically has the biggest of them all: he made an entire multiverse collapse, destroying every existing reality outside of the Prime and Sol zones.

    Archie Eggman’s body count is practically infinite.

  6. If Chris Pratt is such a homophobe, why is he still being accepted to come on talk shows by openly LGBTQ people? (Graham Norton, Ellen, etc.)

    1. DanJ86


      Trouble is that they're a group of people that yell out "phobe" this or "ist" that over ever little thing that I just don't take it seriously anymore. I knew it would eventually happen and now when a genuine one does show up, nobody will believe it.

    2. Diogenes


      i don't know enough about the people involved to talk specifics, but in general that sounds a bit like a "fuck you, got mine" situation. people in a stable, respected, relatively "powerful" position are less likely to be bothered by relatively minor bigotry as long as they're respectful to them as an individual; they can pal around with assholes because they're not at risk of being hurt by them. conversely people in less stable, less powerful positions are less likely to overlook things that reinforce hatred against them because they're not insulated from shitty people.

  7. BBC4 just showed an old Eastenders episode from 2000, and I saw Mo Slater light up a cigerette inside the Vic!

    The UK was a very different place 20 years ago.

  8. inb4 tomorrows announcement is an announcement that there will be an announcement at an upcoming event somewhere.

    1. Strickerx5


      Nah, it'll be an announcement of Sonic 1 coming to smart watches.

  9. Whenever I saw people put their preferred pronouns in their profile headers on social media, I always just assumed it was because the people in question were trans and were making that known.

    Turns out it’s also something allies do to show their support. Huh.

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      ...my pronouns are he/him.

    2. Polkadi~☆


      my pronouns are: figure it out, i want to see you make a fool of yourself >:3

    3. blueblur98


      i've pretty clearly had mine in my profile here from jump (he/him)

  10. Wonder what the Sonic movie would have been like under Sony.

    1. TheOcelot
    2. Thigolf


      I still wanna know what Van's script would've been like. Him talking about Sonic always made it sound like his script was way more sonic-y than the pretty generic plot with some some Sonic elements sprinkled on top situation we got with the final product under Paramount.

    3. Tornado


      Incomprehensible to anyone who doesn't already follow the series.


      Probably every villain Sonic ever faced in one movie.

      Sequel would be written and in preproduction before the first movie came out.

  11. Cineworld’s free Sonic poster is tiny!

    1. Stasis


      A5 "poster"

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      The poster my theater was giving away was like the movie poster if it were a piece of awkward fan art.

  12. You’ve heard of surf and turf, not get ready for a

      JK Rowling is not a TERF, ffs. 

  13. Of course I’d like a latte.


    1. TheOcelot


      What do you think I am, an imbecile?

    >Ben isn’t familiar with any games beyond SA1

    This bothers me more than it should.

  15. There are worse timelines we could be living in.

    Like the one where one of the first few movies in the Dreamworks Animated canon is a Penders-written Knuckles movie.

    1. Inkling Cooper

      Inkling Cooper

      What about the timeline where this was released? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNteN_qlHp0

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      That’s another possibility.

  16. I just remembered this was a thing.

  17. In honour of Storm Dennis


    1. Ellipsis-Ultima


      Bruh that's my thoughts as well

  18. So how many things has Penders boldly and incorrectly claimed to have done during his time on Sonic before anyone else now? My current count is two (bringing in more echidnas and giving Sonic parents).

    1. E-122-Psi


      Wasn't giving Sonic an evil twin one as well?

      Were Shade and the other Chronicles cast seriously unpersoned because Penders said 'You can't have more echidnas, I copyrighted your 'last of their kind' character having anymore of his kind'?

  19. Movie Sonic canonically has toes btw

    1. Diogenes
    2. Milo


      haven't seen the movie, so correct me if i'm wrong

      i don't think sonic's bare feet are shown in the movie (i think heese half-jokingly admitted this on retro when asked about it), but there are scenes in the trailer where you see sonic's footprints in the ground, which show both the prints of his shoes and his feet

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Robotnik examines Sonic’s shoeprints with his computer and they’re able to simulate what Sonic’s footprint looks like on the inside, where we clearly see a full set of toes on the screen.

      The closest we get to seeing his bare feet is halfway through where his shoes are taken off and we see holes in socks, that show that he has peach coloured soles.

  20. I keep hearing accounts of people who go to see a movie and being among an audience that audibly reacted or “went wild” over particular scenes, and... I have literally *never* seen/heard audience members do this in my experience.

    The most I’ve ever heard from fellow cinema-goers is quiet talking or odd moments of canned laughter when something funny happens.

    I’d honestly always assumed it was just a thing that only American film audiences did or something but, no, apparently British audiences acted accordingly when watching the Sonic movie (except for mine).

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      The only time I’ve seen British moviegoers do something unusual in response to a film was back when I saw the second Harry Potter movie, where the audience randomly clapped when the credits began rolling.

    2. Jack at Home

      Jack at Home

      They did in my cinema… and it wasn't the first day in Italy, AND my country really doesn't care about Sonic generally. During the last scene they literally screamed.

    3. Failinhearts


      People went nuts at my Endgame screening

    4. PaddyFancy


      Only when I saw The Simpsons Movie did people go nuts. The two times I saw Endgame was rather reserved, except the second time when one person was shouting quotes out before it was said in the movie, and it was really annoying.

    5. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      My Sonic movie experience was pretty much silent aside from the occasional laughter.

      Didn't help that there were probably only 15 or so there in the theater.

    6. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      In my experience, the biggest reactions in theaters were when i saw them during opening weekends. 

  21. Does anybody know if any other UK cinema chains besides Cineworld are doing promotions for the movie?

    1. Stasis


      I asked Odeon before release but they had no information at the time. Went there today, just a kids cardboard snack holder/door hanger thing. I got one, it's nice but nothing like the Jumanji cards or Sonic poster at Cineworld.


    2. Joy


      Just back from Cineworld. What promotions are they doing?

  22. Sonic movie was fun! Would recommend.

  23. What if the IDW universe is actually the Archie universe, drastically altered as a result of Starline’s experiments with the Warp Topaz?


    1. Miragnarok


      And these were originally meant to restore the old one?

  24. So do all of the toys for the movie still use the old design? ‘cos it sure looks like it.

    1. Celestia


      I think I've only seen one (maybe two) pieces of merch so far that were changed.
