  1. Do they still do Friends reruns in America as obsessively as they do here in the UK?

    1. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Yes. They show it at Nick at Nite and would have marathons of it.

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Our version of Comedy Central shows it endlessly every day, practically the whole daytime schedule.

    3. AlphaRuby

      Hell, Channel 4/E4 was crazy over that til they lost the rights.

      I couldn't call it obsessive in the UK considering it isn't on Free-to-Air TV and hasn't been for some time, also Comedy Central finally brought HD versions of Friends over here.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Eh, could be worse I guess. I mean it's still Friends, but at least it's ten seasons worth of episodes. 

      Although I would prefer a little bit of South Park and Two & A Half Men added in.

    7. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      You don't think it's obsessive? A typical daytime schedule for Comedy Central these days consists of at least two dozen Friends episodes in a row, broken apart only by double bills of The Middle or Impractical Jokers.

      (Not that I'm complaining. I love the show, but still)

    8. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I think the most disappointing one is Bob's Burgers being relegated to Xtra.

    9. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Ryannumber1Scarer we get plenty of South Park in the late evenings when it's allowed to be aired.

      It's on tbs and Nick and some other channel I can't remember

  2. Who's the gay icon of the Sonic franchise?

    1. Wraith
    2. Tara
    3. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      Tails?

      Isn't that what everybody's said? XD

    4. Celestia

      Celestia

      I put more thought into this reply than you'd think.

      The gay icon: Sonic generally speaking, Big among people who are truly enlightened

      The lesbian icon: Blaze

      The bi icon: Knuckles

      The trans icon: Tails

    5. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      That's a lot of thought XD I can definitely see where you'fe coming from with all this. I'd like to say one thing, what it it's Amy that's supposed to be the transgender. Think about it. Rouge has jugs. Where are Amy's?

    6. Celestia
    7. Wraith

      Wraith

      amy is 12

    8. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      Ok youre right youre right. Forgot about that.

      And come to think of it, Tails WAS originally designed as a lady . . . 

      in developement

      I'll just see myself out XD

    9. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      The series needs characters and plots that aren't constructed by hack writers before it delves into sexuality and gender politics. I mean the primary """""""romance"""""" the series presents is that of a fangirl ascended to friend of the hero and it's obnoxious as all hell. Can you think of how much shit they'd get trying to write an LGBT character in the current state? Even as much as Flynn is praised all his worst stuff revolves around romantic interactions, to speak even less of the comic outside his pen.

      So tentative answer is clearly the custom character in Forces because you can make them whatever.

       

      >>though, I think Stanley said Gold was bi or lesbian so there's an actual canonical example for you

    10. Celestia

      Celestia

      I thought we were talking "icons among LGBT fans regardless of canon" not "these chars should be x in canon" (my answers would be the same for both, but admittedly I get what you mean about not really trusting the franchise with it)

    11. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      It just said "gay icon", I didn't get any sense of it being a matter of headcanons. But whatever, I mean if you're making the story yourself it's not like I can control you. 

  3. Some people sayMark the Tapir is just a general caricature of the weird Sonic fans.

     But I've seen way more people claim he's meant to parody a certain "fan" in particular...

    1. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Well, part of those "some" is Bill Freiberger from what I've heard, so I doubt it was intentional.

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      You've got to admit, intentional or not, some of the similarities there are waaaay too close for comfort.

    3. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Technically, you could open a huge can of worms if you take the traits of fans they're poking fun at as having typical Autistic/Asperger traits as well, Because there can be overlap. 

    4. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh

      Please point at a specific part of the episode on how the show mocked autism because all I see in Mark is a Annie Wilkes parody with small nods of the typical overly obsessive Sonic fan.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Woah woah woah, that's not what I was getting at at all.

    6. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      i just got so sick of all the accusations yesterday, i lost all tolerance for it so do mind the obvious bitterness.

    7. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I wasn't saying to open the can of worms, I was just saying that one could theoretically go there. Ultimately I don't think they were poking fun at anything other than the creepy fan stereotype. 

    8. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      they really weren't but ugh, just thinking about what went down yesterday about the episode already annoys me.

    9. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I honestly think you guys might be overthinking it. Like some of the stuff does relate (Sports tape, the fucking arms), but a lot of it was just overly exaggerated to be a parody of Misery, which was the huge joke of the episode, as well as the references to the less popular parts of the fanbase as a whole.

    10. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Wait, there was a particularly big reaction yesterday?

    11. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      Yep, it blew up quite a bit on Twitter.

      This is a joke right?

    3. Big Panda
    4. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      And yet anytime I even mention variants, I get a bunch of shit from people about it.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Ryan: well you tend to complain about every issue having at least one variant, which I can personally tolerate. But even I think this is just going a bit too far.

      They've even got TWO SDCC variants for Christs sake.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I don't complain about them having a variant. I complain when it's a downright lazy variant, or 7 or 8 different variants for one issue.

    7. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Hmmm...fair enough.

    8. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Now. A moment of silence for collectors, who'll want every one of these variants.

      I fear what Sonic #300 will bring

    9. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Well, at least the vast majority of these variants actually look good and aren't lazy.

    10. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Yeah, but if they have enough money to crank out this many variants, they should have enough to keep Mega Man going with a hiatus

  6. I'm increasingly getting the feeling the Sonic Super Digests have been canned without warning.

    But honestly if it turns out they're being cancelled in favour of the returning Super Special Magazine, I'm okay with that. Having both titles running simultaneously was great when they had access to more past stories, but not so much post-reboot.

    1. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      I mean, the next Digest won't come out until like the 22nd this month so idk

    2. Big Panda

      @Soni the most recent issue was supposed to be out in November but has since vanished without a trace.

    3. Forte-Metallix

      Can we get rid of both and get Boom and Mega Man back instead?

    4. Your Vest Friend

      Previewsworld has it down for a release on January 25th. 

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @VEDJ-F issue 18? Because that's the one we're still waiting for that should've been out in November.

    6. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      Yep, it's 18.

    7. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @VEDJ-F would you mind directing me to the page where this is stated? I've found it really hard to navigate the website since the layout changed.

    8. FriendBot

      FriendBot

      wait a minute, that release date is for 19?!

      WHAT?!

      WHERE THE FRICK IS 18?!

      https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog/NOV161171

      wait it says it's 18 but it shows the cover for 19

      wtf?!

    9. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      This is the page with the Nov 16 listings, and if you click into Digest 18, it gives the date. 

      Actually...just noticed that while it does say Digest 18 very clearly, the picture is for Digest 19. What the hell. 

      It also says Res in brackets, which might mean it was re-solicited, hence the delay. 

      *Nov 16 listings for January

    10. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Blue Blood

      From Mobius Encyclopedia

      Prior to Knuckles' birth, his father Locke received a vision from the Ancient Walkers that warned him of a threat that would one day come upon Mobius and that his son would have to stand against. As a result, Locke performed experiments on himself and later on Knuckles' unhatched egg, all for the purpose of creating the ultimate Guardian.

  8. Know what’d be better than just a subbed DVD release of Sonic X? A subbed DVD release that has an all new dub to go with it.

    Never going to happen. But I can dream.

    1. JezMM

      JezMM

      While cool in theory, I won't lie, rewatching Sonic X with the current cast would be SUPER weird and kill some of the nostalgia for me. I feel it'd be such a small audience that would appreciate a new dub, mostly being kids - who are likely not so discerning and have no issue with the original dub. Most of us old farts would still just stick with the sub, I know I would even though I usually play the modern games in English (and even enjoy the more natural sounding banter and jokes that come from the script being written in English first these days).

    2. Sean

      Sean

      As much as people don't like to admit 4Kids ever doing anything good with Sonic X, the writers improved on several of the jokes of the original which leaned too much on facefaults and 4th-wall breaking gags for my tastes. The JP version is still my preferred way of watching Sonic X, but a new dub that keeps faithful to the original script would be pretty dire.

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Sean it doesn’t need to be a 1:1 adaptation of the Japanese script to be faithful.

    4. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      All the woolseyisms would still be fine, and it'd be okay to stick close to the original script at points (for goodness sake, no more puns), but what I'd like is a season 3 with an uncensored dub. Oh, and everything else to be uncensored, but still.

    5. Tornado

      Tornado

      What is the market for a faithful uncut dub of a show that was garbage in any language?

    6. Sean

      Sean

      The sad thing is that I don't think there's a market for the Japanese subbed version either. Props to Discotek for trying to get ahold of it, but they would have to make ABSOLUTELY EXTRA CLEAR that it is Japanese-language only lest angry parents or whoever end up buying it without realizing that it lacks English audio. I don't think there's any incentive for Sega or TMS to release the uncut version in any capacity in the west and it would appeal only to a very niche audience.

    7. GentlemanX

      GentlemanX

      To be fair, there was enough interest in the Japanese version to get 4Kids of all things to sub the series for streaming on Hulu. Discotek is in itself a niche company and they've released more obscure stuff than this (I really don't think there's been much of a push for the Japanese versions of Samurai Pizza Cats or Monster Rancher, but they're now available). The issue seems to stem from a reluctance on TMS's part to make the original version more available when they're aiming for kids with the title (Sonic does say shit in English in episode 2 after all). They haven't told Discotek definitively no though, just not yet.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @GentlemanX that one instance of Sonic saying shit could easily be muted.

      I know, that kinda goes against the whole “uncut” aspect, but it is just one line.

    9. Sean

      Sean

      I always figured that moment in episode 2 could be sidestepped by subbing it as him saying "Shoot." He does say shit but considering the accent in Jun'ichi's dialogue there's some plausible deniability for them to sub it that way. Always thought it was strange that the Hulu subs kept that intact.

    10. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      SEGA doesn't really have much of a reason to pay mind to Sonic X anyway. At the end of the day, it’s a promotional piece for the franchise, meant to bring attention to it. Certainly did the job it was meant to.

       

      @GentlemanX While inappropriate for English speakers, "shit" doesn't have the same impact it does for us with Japanese speakers. Either that, or Jun'ichi Kanemaru got away with it because no one there other than himself knew the word.

    11. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Polkadi~☆ the Japanese equivalent of “shit” (as a curse word) is “kuso”, which I’ve heard in anime (even kids anime) a few times.

  9. So if I transfer my Wii data to my Wii U, the existing Wii data on my Wii U and my Mii's will be overwritten?? I don't want that! I just want my game save files D:

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Oh yeah, that was the main reason I didn't do it I think.

    2. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      You can probably dump your save data onto an SD card, but if you made any Wii Shop purchases on your Wii U... then, yeah, you might have a problem (really not sure how that works).

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I literally just made my first two ever Wii Shop purchases in light of the Shop closing soon...

    4. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      I don't remember the transfer being so troublesome, it just took a long time.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      The guide on the system says it requires an SD card with 500-sonething gb.

      Okay that seems simple eno-

      a9DqiP.jpg

      ...?!

    6. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      500 gigs? Wtf I only needed a 4gb one.

    7. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      500gb?!

      The Wii itself can't hold that much data (Hell I'm pretty sure it's not able to go past 32gb with extra storage...). You sure you're reading that right?

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      "An SD card with a least 512mb of free space"

    9. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      MB... little over half a gb.

      I was about to say man. lol

    10. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Hahaha...

      Could I just use it to transfer my save files? (i.e. insert it into my old Wii, transfer the files onto it, move the card to the Wii U, and so on)

    11. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Eh idk. Again, never felt the need to do it myself. XD

      I don't see why not but then again... this is Nintendo. Also, if I recall some files on the Wii can't actually be moved for some reason.

  10. Where do you want the next Pokemon region to be based on?

    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Dee Dude while I wouldn't object to seeing them down the line, I wouldn't want them to be the next region, if only because they'd all have similar climates to Alola. I'd prefer whatever comes next to either be colder or neutral.

    5. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I categorically don’t care about what the region is based on. Just give me something that's fun to explore, which concerns the layout and design of the game's scenario more that the theme. From Gen V onwards, there's been next to no exploration in the new games, and everywhere is inhabited by people waiting to tell you all about everything. Where are my long, winding routes, caves and whatever else that really make it feel like an adventure?

    6. DarkRula

      DarkRula

      The Orre region from the Gamecube games but with actual routes. Joking, of course.

  11. Give me a legitimate reason for why Big sucks that isn't "because his gameplay in that one game from a decade and a half ago sucked".

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      You know who really sucks? Sonic. I hated his gameplay in Sonic Labyrinth.

    2. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      A lot of people find him very annoying and also quite creepy (he's an 18 year old who's best friends with a 6 and 12 year old). 

       I don't agree with that at all though. I quite like Big. 

    3. Ratcicle King

      Ratcicle King

      I don't hate Big, but I honestly don't miss him.

      His character is a big factor for that, you could say he has his moments, but they're so far inbetween the moments where you feel his entire morallity revolves around Froggy and nothing else.

    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Vector is a 20-year-old who hangs around with a 16 and 6-year-old.

      What's your point? P;

    5. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      A lot of people view an 18 year old hanging out with a 12 and 6 year old as something akin to pedophilia. 

      As I say, I disagree with it, as I feel like Big isn't that kind of character whatsoever. 

    6. The Chairman Of The Board
    7. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Again, do those same people have a problem with Vector hanging out with Espio and Charmy?

    8. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      I don't think they feel the same way about Vector because even though they are friends they wouldn't be friends if they weren't employer and employee. Also Big isn't friends with Amy and Cream. They were just together in Heroes. They haven't teamed up since (in the games). Big hasn't even been in a game since Heroes. 

    9. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream

      I don't know? I just said that I don't think that way. I can only echo their opinion in an attempt to answer your question. 

      I wouldn't say Vector is quite Charmy's best friend though (more like a babysitter IMO). I do know people have issues with Vector being quite abusive to Charmy. 

      Big said he was Amy's best friend in Sonic Chronicles BTW.

  12. I've been thinking, with Samurai Jack making a comeback, do you think there are any old Cartoon Cartoons that could work if rebooted as Adult Swim shows?

    1. Big Panda

      Oh lord not THAT kind of adult reboot...no...god no...

    5. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      Not sure I'd agree with Ed, Edd n Eddy, but I think it depends on how violent and disturbing the show already was and how much they would like to push it.

    6. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Leave Ed Edd n Eddy out of this.

    7. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      Ehh, I'd rather leave EEnE out to pasture.

      Big Picture Show was just about the perfect ending to the series, and I'd hate for that to be thrown away for an incredibly risky idea.

    8. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      The reason why is because the show doesn't need to continue. It already ended and it should be left the way it ended.

      Getting back to @Forte-Metallix said: Cow & Chicken could work. Again, it got away with some really weird stuff when it originally aired.

      Also Johnny Bravo. The original show was basically a guy trying to get laid without it specifically being stated as such =P

      Aside from Sym-bionic Titan, perhaps Courage the Cowardly Dog? Come to think of it, that show almost looks like a "lite" Adult Swim cartoon. So what would happen if Courage actually got into Adult Swim :lol:

    4. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      Series' come and go. Pokemon has been at it for over 20 years, and they've effectively been releasing the same game over and over again. It's bound to run out of steam at some point, simply because inventing tens, sometimes over a hundred creatures every generation results in a case of diminishing returns for creativity. Pokemon is something that can maintain a rotating fanbase for a while because of its consistency, but it can't last because of that diminishing creativity.

    7. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      I think once it gets towards the thousands, then they would have to do something and I mean beyond the soft reboots and remakes that they keep doing.

      It's hard enough for people to memorise them all with the current lot (I can only name about 10 Pokemon if you had to ask me and most are the ones that nearly everyone knows). Imagine naming 10,000 or even 100,000 Pokemon. How many of them are going to be remembered? Maybe cut back on the amount and focus on the ones that people like?

      Besides Pokemon is the Dynasty Warriors of RPGs, but its weird that Pokemon gets a pass while Dynasty Warriors get flak for the same thing.

    8. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      In Sun/Moon, they removed the national dex (the part of the Pokedex that contains every single pokemon ever made) and changed it basically from "Gotta catch them all!" to "Gotta catch all the ones we put in the game this time around", which already takes a huge enough load from the players back, I feel like.

      Edit: Heck, they even tell you which attacks are effective once you faced a pokemon you faced before again, so you don't even need to remember the types they have anymore. 

    9. Milo

      Milo

      @Diogenes does that mean they turn into digimon

    10. Sean

      Sean

      Yeah people sometimes overlook the fact that Game Freak has been downsizing the amount of Pokemon needed for completion's sake in the games. These days you don't even need to actually catch every Pokemon - you just need to have them registered as seen in your dex to reap the benefits.

      That's not saying it won't ever get to be a problem, but they have been taking efforts to mitigate the pain of "catching them all." Time will tell how that goes for them a few more gens down the line.

    11. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      This is perhaps why recent games have included more minimal amounts of new Pokemon, while the supposed new title might actually just be a retool with little to no new Pokemon.

  16. List of every bad thing that's come from PPG16 so far:

    -Cutting Ms. Bellum because she's too "sexual"

    -Character with ill-advised transgender parallels

    -Twerking gradeschoolers

    -Bubbles dressed as a hooker

    -An older woman kissing Buttercup on the lips

    And now

    -Writer doing self-insert episodes

  18. Gonna get something off my chest: I don't believe for a single minute that being gay is "sinful" for the simple fact that there's no logical reason for it to *be* sinful. Why should sex between two consenting adults who feel love for one another be a bad thing? It isn't hurting anyone. And I resent being "forgiven" for it. I have nothing to fucking apologize for: if I did I may as well apologize for having brown hair while I'm at it.

  20. Which Sonic game compilation had the best aesthetic (logos, menu design, music, etc.)?

    1. TheOcelot
    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I prefer original Mega Collection to MCP, personally. Especially the special features menu.

    3. PublicEnemy1

      PublicEnemy1

      @Ernest the Panda Yeah, such as looking at the comics and such. I loved the music, too.

       

    4. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Gems Collection had the best aesthetic, whereas Mega Collection had the best music. I mean, how often do people get nostalgic for a compilation collection's music?

    5. GentlemanX

      GentlemanX

      I'd say it's a toss up between Mega Collection and Jam. Mega Collection's got a lot of classic music for it's menu themes and overall has a lot of care put into the presentation of everything it has in it - from manuals to the extras, etc. Gems Collection felt like a solid follow up to this, but felt just a little less unique. Jam on the other hand has Sonic World, which is just such a fun idea that it gets a lot of points. Mega Collection's aesthetic feels cleaner, but Jam is more ambitious.

    6. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      Mega Collection is one of the few compliations that makes me wanna play it for the simple fact of the music and aesthetics, despite having games I can play in my toaster.

    7. PaulyBFromDa303

      PaulyBFromDa303

      I think a lot of people are agreeing with Mega Collection on this one. Who can blame them? Every menu has neat sound effects, neat music, neat designs, I would always just get lost in the turning gears at the same time as looking at a classic comic collection.

      Kinda makes me want to play right now

    8. blueblur98

      blueblur98

      jam/mega collection/gems collection are pretty great, and i really like riders' style.

      E-122-Psi

      Kinda liked the original Mega Collection presentation, the 3D menus and everything seemed so classy and effortful. Gotta credit Sonic Jam for presenting their gallery in a PLAYABLE HUD WORLD however.

    10. Solister

      Solister

      Despite not being exactly a Sonic game, neither I believe having a better design than Gems or MCP, I think I should add this to the discussion:

      Couldn't find a better video. One I used to like which had a good quality and showed all in-game features seems to be down (Or can't find it on Google).

      I mean, it doesn't have anything"wow" when compared to Gems or MCP, but this was my first contact with Sonic and where I first got into all the SEGA stuff, in fact, this was likely one of the first video games I ever played. It quite makes me want to get into a time machine and back to nearly 2008/2009 when I was only 5/6 years old and first met Sonic, but at the same time I believe there's a few others periods I would like to relive first.

  23. What do you imagine the Disney voice cast being like in KH3.

    The ones that I think are a given to return from their original movies are Mandy Moore as Rapunzel, Zachary Levi as Eugene, John Ratzenberger as Ham, Wallace Shawn as Rex, Scott Adsit as Baymax, and Ryan Potter as Hiro.

    Woody will most definitely be voiced by Tom Hanks' brother Jim, as is common for the non-movie/TV special stuff.

    Mike Wozawski will most likely be voiced by one of Billy Crystal's stand-ins. John Goodman and Tim Allen *may* return as Buzz and Sully, but it's hard to say, based on past acting credits (Goodman particularly, who's reprised Sully in some games but not in others).

     

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I'm hoping they get at least John Goodman and Allen myself.

    2. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      You pretty much already hit the nail on the head.

      Don’t know why people think Tom will voice Woody when it’s so obvious that it’ll be Jim.

      I’m actually hoping Billy will return just for this one occasion.

      Some of the BH6 cast will most likely use their cartoon VAs.

    3. Boomer

      Boomer

      If they don't get Tim Allen it'd be pretty cool if they got Patrick Warburton, like on the show.

    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Dee Dude the majority of the BH6 TV cast are the original actors...

    5. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      I know, should’ve specified.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I can see Tim Allen and Goodman actually. Disney Infinity with the number of characters likely didn't have the cash to get the actual VAs. Considering both did stuff like Disney Scene It and the Cars games, I think they'd jump on for something as big as KH in terms of Disney titles.

    7. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Unless she has some new lines, I wouldn't be surprised if they simply recycled Mary Gibbs original voice clips for Boo.

    8. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      It’s pretty likely since I’m sure Mary is obviously like 18 or 19 right now.

      Unless she does the inevitable part where she says “Sora, Donald & Goofy” and we go “AWWWW SHE SAID IT”, then they’ll probably have one of the staff members’ 3 year old daughter or something voice her then lol.

    9. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Didn't Mandy Moore also do Aerith in KH1?

      Yeah most of these I think are likely. Especially Zach, since he’s expressed desire to be in KH. Not sure about James woods though given all the controversy...

  24. Lately, I’ve been going back and forward in my mind with “Maybe I could draw IDW Sonic someday. But at the same time I dunno if I wanna. But what if I do wanna, but I can’t because my personal art history would fuck me over? Maybe I shouldn’t get too hung up over what I draw and put out in future because I’ll probably never be good enough anyway? But what if I do end up being good enough, but by then I’ve already sabotaged myself?”

      *me 10 seconds into imagining how it'd be neat to contribute any small thing to any wayforward games in the far future when my skills are far better because their whole aesthetic inspires me but maybe i shot my own blimp* *continues setting my sights on indie comic stuff eventually, unless some start up studio without a concrete reputation to uphold is making something like the next skullgirls in the future or whatever* though tbh my skills are still currently in its infancy anyway so i have lots of time to think about the future wherever i end up

    7. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Mike Pollock voiced hentai before, and didn't Rebecca Sugar draw lewd stuff too? She now has her own TV show on a kids' channel! Heck, Tyson Hesse's wife Mariel Cartwright still fills her twitter with nsfw art and, basically at the same time, animated for the E-for-everyone Sonic Mania Plus Trailer with Tyson with noone batting an eye.

      I really don't think there are any hard locks that will keep you out. I'm not that in depth with the industry, but I'm sure they are aware that people have to start somewhere or simply like to experiment and push their own comfort zone from time to time. 

      I think both of you have a great shot at achieving what you strife for. The latest Sonic the Comic Online comic with Sticks you drew looked fantastic and Ferno's aesthetic fits right into other Wayforward stuff. I think there's a real chance both of you might do it. 

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Thanks, that means a lot ^^

      Maybe the difference here is what you’re drawing nsfw art of?

      Like, Rebecca Sugar maybe doing wonders with Steven Universe, but would she still be allowed to work on, say, an Ed Edd n Eddy-related thing (a lot of EEnE yaoi is amoung her pre-professional work)?

    9. Ferno

      Ferno

      That's one thing I think about often, like once someone gets a job on the thing they used to dabble in lewd stuff of, doesn't that technically retroactively make the lewd stuff "official art"

    10. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      My personal interpretation is that it’s only official art if it’s used to promote an actual licensed product.

      Ergo, the numerous soft-fetish commissions of Sonic characters that Tracey Yardley has done over the years is no more “official” than that R-rated Sonadow doujin over there.

  25. I thought Americans always said the date as MM/DD.

    But then why is it still “4th of July” instead of “July the 4th”?

      I never got why the heck America goes from second smallest unit of time to smallest unit of time in to biggest unit of time in their dates, it just seems weird, man

      Because if us Americans can be counted on for one thing, it's inconsistency.

      Why the fuck do we call it a name as generic as "Forth of July" instead of "America Day" or something?

      At least Cinco de Mayo lets you know it's not an english holiday.

      I can't say why we do it, but I can say that since I grew up with it it's natural to me. For me I always have to check myself when looking at dates from other countries just to make sure I'm reading it right, which is very inconvenient. But so is metric since for some reason we refuse to switch even though it would make most things so much easier. Using units of ten instead of some arbitrary system that changes with no rhyme or reason based on what is being measured just makes more sense. But this is the USA that we're talking about and sense is not one of our strong points.

      To answer @Ernest-Panda though, normally we do say month followed by day. For example, if today was any other calendar day we would just say July fourth. As it is a holiday though, and one celebrating the founding of our nation, saying the Fourth of July makes it sound very important. Probably not the best reasoning, but hey, we're Americans and if you expect reasoning from us on a whole you're making a mistake XD

      Er, there is an alternative name. It's called Independence Day.

      @ThePrinceOfSaiyans true, but I had thought we were talking specifically about referring to the date. If we were then it is the most important date in the USA's and it makes sense to say the date in a more important sounding way. If we weren't, then I'll just have to live with sounding silly Xb

      I think the 4th of July goes back to when America was still British ruled and still would have used the date system back then. Maybe they changed it later on (there seems to be a lack of history regarding time and date formats, I know the UK is using more 24 hours for the past 10 years or so compared to the past where it was almost nearly always 12 hours).

      I call it America (or MURICA) day anyway...
