  1. Not sure what to think of Patrick Steward anymore...

    1. KHCast


      I'm sure he's still a good guy, and he doesn't seem like a homophobic guy.

      Though the cake thing is stupid in general. I mean, you can make a cake for a gay couple even if you religiously feel like homosexuality is wrong, on the bases that they're still people that shouldn't be segregated

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      He's been a pretty vocal LGBT supporter from what I hear.

      Plus he and Ian McKellen are BFF's.

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Actually, on the subject of whether he's a nice guy: I've heard a few people say he's not all that nice to be around...

    4. KHCast


      I mean if I opened a Mormon bakery, and someone came and asked me to make a cake that had a alcohol or coffee reference on it, implying they drink those, would I deny them service because "it conflicts with my religion?" No.

      Now I mean there are lines, like obviously refusing to make a cake that says "fuck Jesus" or "religion is a sham" is one thing, but that's not what's happening here.

    5. KHCast


      Was that before or after the incident?

    6. Nepenthe


      You can refuse an artistic service based on your personal beliefs. However, you cannot actually deny service to a gay couple. There's a difference.

    7. KHCast


      I meant excluding service to the person ordering said cake. You can't deny service to anyone, though you can deny what they want you to make, that I agree with.

    8. Nepenthe


      You are allowed to deny service to people based on the rules established by your business. Those rules simply cannot ignore protections for specific classes. If a gay couple comes into a business and they're not up to dress code, the business has the right to ask them to leave. If a gay couple came to that same establishment, even if dressed wrong, and they were told to leave for being gay, that would be lawsuit worthy.

    9. KHCast


      Yes that is true I specifically referring to excluding people based on your personal/religious view on them. I wasn't focusing on the simple dress code rule

  2. Name a show that you respect but don’t necessarily like.

    I’m really not all that into Steven Universe, but I’m still grateful for what it’s done for LGBT representation in kids media (even if it could do better in a couple of areas).

    1. Strickerx5


      The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.

      I appreciate the show for being so different in a time where CN really was trying to off itself but the shit is just too weird for me.

    2. Sean


      Adventure Time. I liked it early on but I wasn't into how lore-heavy it became later on so I grew out of it.

    3. Harkofthewaa


      Game of Thrones. Such a complex and intricate story ruined by people shagging each other every five minutes. I really want to get into that series but come on.

    4. Menace2Society


      Probably Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Cool how we have a show focused on an agency rather a group of superheroes (or just one superhero that is) but I always thought the show was boring.

    5. Ferno


      Loud House. Its great that a nicktoon besides Spongebob took off in the 2010s and I liked the few eps of it that I saw, but something about the aura the show gives off, or maybe just the fandom, keeps me mostly at bay for the most part

    6. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Rick and Morty for me. It has it's moments both in terms of humor and emotion, but at the end of the day, I find that it relies heavily on the same kind of crude and edgy humor that you see in pretty much every adult show I've seen.

    7. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Now, I both respect and "like" Spongebob. I agree it's among Nickelodeon's best, and say its worthy of the honor of being one of the greatest cartoons of all.

      But I don't "worship" it.

      Good lord, could I care less about those thousands of people proclaiming that Seasons 1-3 are the be-all-end-all masterpiece of human media and that all seasons afterwards belong in the 10th circle of hell and stuff. I see Spongebob, and most TV shows in general, as nothing more than something I could just watch and unwind. It was there to shut my brain and help cool it off after a long school day, but I wasn't eagerly look forward to it or anything. 

      I've heard a lot bout what bad stuff happened in seasons 5 - 9, do I hate them? Yeah, I feel such immorality should not belong to what's supposed to be shown to kids. But honestly, when I saw a "bad" episode, I simply thought it was boring and stupid. That's it. My only viewing of (what I think was) One Coarse Meal? "That was dumb." And forgot all about it the next day.

      Yet people still go on and on how offended they are by a piece of fictional comic media and it soured it's characters. I for one have a much simpler option: moving on. If the series is good again, that's great. Too bad I don't watch TV anymore anyhow. 

      And no, Squidward is not the best and most relatable character in the show. 

    8. Bowbowis


      Not a TV show, but that basically sums up my feelings towards Mario (sans the RPGs). The games are obviously very well crafted but none of them have ever really made an impression on me. Like, I know Odyssey got rave reviews but all I think when playing it is"Yes. This is a video game. I am playing it. It very much exists."

    9. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      Used to be Steven Universe and Adventure Time, but ever since rewatching them this year and have them become some of my favorite things, among other things, I'm convinced if I respect something but don't enjoy it, I'm just not watching/reading/playing/doing it at the right time in my life. Like I'm coming into them with a predisposition or a bias that I need to lose over time to just see it from a different perspective.

      Makes me kinda happy, because there is a lot of stuff out there that I respect artistically right now, but don't enjoy altogether. Gives me something to look forward to in case I finally click with it later on down the road. Also makes me feel refreshed, like it reaffirms I'm always changing, and never stuck in one mindset despite getting older throughout the years.

  3. With the amount of western films and TV finally being inclusive with LGBT people, Russia's eventually going to have nothing to show the kiddies except their own stuff.

    That's two parts hilarious and sad.

    1. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      *said in light of the Power Rangers movie recieving a 16+ rating there*

    2. Lucid Dream

      Lucid Dream


      I think Russia's taking some creative liberties in order to make sure that doesn't happen. I don't know if I should be sad or laugh.

    3. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      That pic's fake

    4. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      @Ernest-Panda Why the 16+ rating over in the UK?

    5. JezMM


      @Jovahexeon Joranvexeon

      It has a 12A rating in the UK (all ages but it's up to the parent/guardian to research and decide whether it is suitable for an under 12, and such ages must be accompanied by an adult to be permitted entry)

    6. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon


      Still though,  @Ernest-Panda and @JezMM why the steeper age rating in Russia?

    7. JezMM


      It contains an LGBT character, and Russia is adamantly against depictions of LGBT anything in media.

      It is an incredibly shit state of affairs, LGBT people over there get attacked and murdered and literally the police do nothing about it.  They let it happen.

    8. Blacklightning


      can we just like... get rid of putin

      like throw him off a bridge or something

    9. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      They did the same thing to Beauty and the Beast too

  4. Would you call yourself a Sonic fan that can't be shaken by a bad game or anything like that?

    1. Dr. Mechano
    2. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I'd say so. I mean, I still haven't played Rise of Lyric (or any Boom game) because I have zero interest in it, but that didn't put me off following the games in general. 

    3. Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      Vertical Snoop [D.K.]

      I waded through the Olympics. I waded through Lost World. I waded through Rise of Lyric. I can wade through Forces.

    4. Wraith


      I'm apathetic toward bad games since I know I'll still pick up whatever good ones come out.

    5. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      I think I just don't care enough. I've got so much I have to deal with in my life, like getting back on track with school stuff, getting in shape, learning how to draw so I can get into that business, etc.

      And I constantly have anxiety over real life problems like how the world isn't safe, especially for young women (I have two sisters and I'm scared for them). Sonic Forces is a video game. It literally doesn't matter whether it's bad or good. I play games for fun, and I don't need it to be the greatest game ever to enjoy it. That's not to say I won't ever complain or praise a game, but I don't feel the need to take it so far that I need to argue with people about minute details.

    6. TheOcelot


      I've been a Sonic fan long enough in that I know which Sonic games I enjoy/will always like regardless whatever happens to SEGA/Sonic Team.

      However, bad Sonic games will still piss me off because I want Sonic games to be good.

    7. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I wasn't shaken by bad games like ShTH, 06 or Boom. Even S4, which was a total insult to me as a fan, wasn't enough to scare me off. But Forces is another matter. As much as I may have a strong distaste for the game and think it's prett awful, looking at it as objectively as I possibly can... It's not an out and out "bad game". If SEGA were to carry on with the series in the direction that Forces is taking it, I would have to bow out.

    8. Kiah


      Yes. Although I hate the current direction (lol) of the series I still have love for Sonic and I don't plan on going anywhere as I do see some things enjoyable amid the bad. I have a high tolerance level and it doesn't take much for me to enjoy something in general. 

      I do really hope that things get better and that SEGA and Sonic Team figures out what in audacity they are doing before it's too late as I want to see Sonic stay around and definitely be successful.

      Besides I'm too old and shaken up by IRL problems and occupied with responsibilities to be wound up and emotionally invested in a video game series let alone act irate and argue with people. I make it a point to keep my expectations, joys and disappointments in check when it comes to Sonic and things are less stressful as a result.

    9. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      No, at least briefly. There was a short time when I did go off the series because of my disappointment of Heroes and seeing Shadow but at least Sonic Rush and Gems Collection were around shortly after to win me back. I mean it was about a year after all. If those weren't around and it was just Genesis and 06, then perhaps would have gone completely off. It took until Generations before I finally recovered enough to play the 3D games again even though I did follow the series still because of some of the spinoffs. I ignore the games that don't appeal to me and buy the ones that do, after all the Sonic series have enough games to have something for interest. Even if I don't buy any more Sonic games because of various reason, at least that I can still follow the series.

      Right now I have more problems to worry about than the state of a gaming series such as various health problems and stress. I've seen series come and go over the years and really greatful that Sonic isn't one of them.

  5. Found this in a shop


    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      It looks bootleg to me.

    2. Big Panda
    3. Marcello


      What has he seen

    4. Kiah


      His eyes aren't green...wouldnotbuy

    5. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      I own the infamous Super Sonic bootleg keychain of that material. Parents bought it for me one Christmas. :/

    6. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      "Infamous" you say? I've never heard of it.

    7. Your Vest Friend

      This goddamn thing. 

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Oooh, now I remember...

    9. Marcello


      Looks too good to be bootleg.

  6. Who remembers...


    1. Shikushi


      I was not expecting Plankton
      This is great

    2. Forte-Metallix


      Boy, that takes me back.

      Didn't they also make a Charlie Brown Christmas parody with Chuckie or something?

    3. Shikushi


      I also didn't see that ending coming
      What a prick

    4. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      I don't remember seeing it on tv but I do member watching it on Youtube.

      There are some old Nick Christmas commercials I'm sure I've seen though.

    5. kirby1up


      I remember I also remember the tale of Patrick the snowman.


    6. Superstar Introvert CC14

      Superstar Introvert CC14

      These are some of my all-time favorite Christmas commercials. Enjoy the full experience, straight from a dude who worked on them:


    7. Milo


      Amazing. Never recall seeing this.

      Really is kind of a shame Disney / Nick / CN don't do crossover stuff with their characters anymore.

    8. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      @Gabe That actually reminds me, anyone member CN City?

    9. kirby1up


      @Deck The Dee who could forget.

  8. Best to worst case scenarios for Archie Sonic:

    • Best Ending: Archie Sonic comes back and continues like nothing happened (under Archie or not).
    • Great Ending: Archie Sonic comes back and is announced to be ending at 300, after which it will be rebooted with a new #1.
    • Okay Ending: Archie Sonic comes back but rebooted with a new #1 immediately, with no closure to the previous series.
    • Bad Ending: Archie Sonic is allowed to continue to 300 but will completely end after that. No reboot.
    • Worst Ending: Archie Sonic is canned. No continuation. No closure. No reboot. It's gone.
    • Super-Duper-Worst-Ever Ending: Archie Sonic comes back but all rights are handed over to Ken Penders.

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I'm down for a Great Ending.

    2. Marcello


      Hoping for the best ending.

    3. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      I like the great ending. After everythi g that the comic has been through I could see them finally closing ther series at 300.

      *cues Sonic 2 game gear ending music*

    4. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      Best ending plz.

    5. Stay at Home Ultima

      Stay at Home Ultima

      ...one of the first two.

    6. Bobnik


      Hope for one of the first two, but my gut says the comics will be cancelled or stopped at 300.

    7. JaidynReiman


      My guess is "Okay." Great I think is plausible, but it seems a little bit weird it'd be paused for six months like that.

    8. Kiah


      Best ending please. Great ending is okay but I want to see that number of the Sonic comics grow, you know? :) 

      Okay, Bad, Worst, and Super Duper Worst Ending can all take a hike. 

    9. JaidynReiman


      Sounds like we got Worst Ending.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer
    2. gala


      I'd probably say the first one

      They're both adorable I can't choose!

    4. Hero of Legend
    5. Oscillo


      First one, not too much of a difference either way though.

    6. Spin Attaxx

      Spin Attaxx

      I dunno, in both pics his ears look too small and it's pretty jarring, no offense.

    7. Lisbon


      Second. The pose seals it, I think.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Spin-Attack: I've taken to drawing him with small ears in recent years, kinda a throwback to the AoStH/SatAM. I have been wondering whether to change it though.

    9. Zaysho


      I think the pose on the second one is stronger, especially with his tails having a nicer flow.

  9. On this weeks episode of "Nintendo are bloody idiots"...


    1. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      Yeah, just posted the go Nintendo webpage link to this article.

      Damn this was a huge missed opportunity. I want those to images they look amazing.

    2. RosaRosaRosalina


      not exactly idiots, just close minded

      but still, they should REALLY consider making some new mario comics




    3. Zaysho


      I thought Archie's original pitch was by Tracy Yardley? Are we sure this isn't just art Bates did on his own? This looks like his most recent stuff.

      I guess I'm asking because there's no comment from Bates on the article, but I suppose I have to look into it.

    4. Dejimon11


      It's possible that they tried again.

    5. SonicWind


      C'mon, Nintendo!

      Do you know how awesome it would be to have an official Mario and Sonic crossover in comics like Archie did before with Sonic and Mega Man-- twice?! The idea practically prints money!

      Besides, that is some good art. And I'll admit, I'd be curious how it'd be written, given the franchise's notoriety for lack of elaborate plotlines (not that that's a bad thing, of course).

    6. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      My thinking would be that since Mario is usually the silent protagonist in games having him spesk in comic would.be strange for Nintendo. This is post 90s I'm talking about so I excluded the previous nintendo comic and mario cartoons 

    7. Zaysho


      Going by Bates's DA, it seems these weren't pitch illustrations, just  ideas he had on his own and designed covers as if they were real.

      He does a lot of personal art with game characters, and he has a lot of his own ideas for these things, so that's why I'm a little doubtful these were part of anything official.

    8. JezMM


      Literally two pictures.  There is literally nothing to judge what the pitch was from these.  And they're hardly idiots considering what Archie did with Sonic at some points.

    9. Tails spin

      Tails spin

      @JezMM your right. But dang is that art beautiful

  10. I feel like we should've started hearing something about this years SoS by now...

    1. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      I miss the February announcements.

    2. MamboCat


      Last year's announcement was super late. :s

    3. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      It was explained SEGA places a lot of emphasis on similar events being announced at the same time, and since Boom takes longer to finalize everything, SoS' announcement is delayed as a result.

    4. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      2012 was a great start, Boom was announced on Hedgehog Day and there was 5 months' notice. That should be the target every year, I think... announcing Boom/SoS after E3 isn't good practice.

    5. ImPantsAtThis


      Looking forward to another SoS -- if there is one, of course -- 'cause I should be able to catch it via stream.

    6. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      I think SEGA America has too much on its plate to organize an event themselves; they should hire an independent contractor to plan these events instead.

    7. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)


      Oh, SoS is a for-sure thing. Even if SEGA cut the flow of funds, I imagine the SoS team would still get something together with their own money.

    8. ImPantsAtThis


      I don't like to anger Shad and Hoggy by making assumptions though ^.^

    9. Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Legosi (Tani Coyote)

      Oh, I don't mean to assume! I only imagine that since SoS once was paid for out of pocket, it would be again if push came to shove. Hopefully that never has to happen though; this sort of thing isn't cheap!

  11. For anybody who cares about Pokemon Adventures, Viz are finally doing omnibus releases next year.

    1. Ferno


      oh sure now that its dying soon

    2. Celestia


      Wait, what? Is Adventures ending too? The only one I've heard is ending is the Kosaku Anakubo gag manga

    3. Zaysho


      Fucking finally


      edit: wait what it's ending

    4. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Pretty sure that that one manga with the Clefairy that talks is ending.

    5. Ferno


      Oh is there more than one Pokemon manga? I heard one was ending and assumed it was to make way for the manga adaption of the upcoming gen 8 pokemon anime.

    6. TCB



    7. Celestia


      Yeah, the anime-based manga is replacing Anakubo's manga, not Adventures/Special.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Anakubo’s gag manga is actually just moving to a different magazine, the ending announcement was a prank.

  13. *looks at new thread* wait, what's the difference between a mod and an admin? :/

    1. Jix Hedgehog

      Jix Hedgehog

      Mods are remote bosses while admins usually have access to their respective server(s)

    2. Solkia


      admins aren't on as often

    3. TCB


      Mods enforce the rules the Admins creates. They also supercede them when certain matters can't be handled by a SSMB Mod.

      Root Admins are different; they are more concerned with the technical side of the forums. Even then they are above the SSMB Admins themselves. Makes sense seeing how Dreadknux is the webmaster of the entire TSS Network.

    4. TCB


      At least, they's how I see the hierarchy as.

    5. Jix Hedgehog

      Jix Hedgehog

      ^ bullseye, adding that yep, the admin is usually the creator/ owner,.. Meaning 1. Unless TSS was a joint effort, Svend should be the only admin. 2. He's responsible for the server cra*shot*

    6. TCB
    7. RosaRosaRosalina


      i can't tell, i'm afraid of both

    8. Sean


      Admins have red banners and mods have orange banners

      @Goomy: The whole point of the system is to protect children from naughty words. Dick may not be offensive to us, but it's not a word a child should be exposed to P;

    4. Solkia


      but children already use the word. I've known the term since third grade

    5. SuperLink


      children say fuck since third grade too, doesn't mean it's not a curse.

      Honestly there's a chance the guy used some kind of text loophole or something, or used a lower case l instead of an I.

    6. SuperLink


      what do you know lower case L and capital I look almost identical in this font too.

    7. Solkia


      I've never understood the point of censoring things for kids. KEeping them ignorant of things in the world isn't going to matter in the long-run since they'll learn them anyways.

    8. SuperLink


      fact is most of the adult world hypocritically disagrees. nothing would be worse for Nintendo's stocks and reputation than hundreds of reports from adults/the news saying SHOCKING GAME NINTENDO TEACHES KIDS HOW TO SWEAR. No matter how damaging you think swears are, you can't get away with letting kids see them in mainstream media unless you want to go out of business.

    9. Pawn


      Weird. It's probably what Superlink said. Pokemon wouldn't even let me type the word 'connection' in the Shout-Out box =/ Dunno what that was about.

  16. How do I access the Runners revival?

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I don’t understand any of that.

    3. Failinhearts


      That's the website, just download the game from here as an apk file if using Android. Then if you access that file, you can install it like a regular app.

      If you use an Apple device, though... well, you're shit outta luck unless you jailbroke it. (Basically Homebrewing it)

    4. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Oh wait, I think I got it.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Nope, don’t got it. Downloaded the jailbreak one and it’s just sitting there on my home screen unable to open.

    6. Failinhearts


      Hang on, are you Android or Apple?

    7. Big Panda
    8. Failinhearts


      That explains it. Yeah, you basically have to "hack" an Apple product to run unauthorized apps. So unless you wanna go through that, you can't really access this game.

    9. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      Shit. Oh well

  17. Question: if the FF were brought into IDW, would you rather have them and Sonic already have a history (not to the extent of Archie Sonic) or would you want them to not know each other?

    1. JosepHenry


      I would like them not to be a team, to be quite frank. Starting fully fresh, but their roles could be the same though.

      Like Sally could still be a princess and Nicole could be her personal AI assistant, but not sure about the others.

    2. Zaysho


      Give them a history with Sonic for maximum salt.

    3. Sean


      "LONG TIME NO SEE" or I riot

    4. Teoskaven


      It's the Archie team that through space-time-dimensional shenanigans has managed to get into the IDWverse, so they have a past but still have to restart from scratch their relationship with Sonic and the others, a good way to have your cake and eat it too. The only thing that matters is to not mention Panders characters, so everything else should be fair game to reference, no?

    5. Celestia


      I'd want a reference to Spinball as when Sonic met them tbh.

    6. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Their history can be Spinball since that was their official game appearance.

      "Sonic helped us during the Veg-O-Fortress incident and inspired us to become heroes ourselves!"

    7. Sega DogTagz

      Sega DogTagz

      I'd rather skip an "introduction arc" and focus more on what they offer in the here and now.


      They could just be a team like the Diamond Cutters and have worked with Sonic and co on a ton of missions in the past.

    8. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      I’d prefer history with Sonic, if they could even pull that off. But I’m not bothered if they meet for the first time.

      Their new backstory had some implication that they didn’t know each other until Eggman invaded, so it’s not like they haven’t been altered before.

      Either way, I can trust Ian how to handle them so long as he isn’t mandated to write them a specific way.

      I’d definitely like to see them as a mercenary team like the Diamond Cutters. They can call themselves—the Knothole Legion.

    9. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      I kinda would want them to sorta be their own people. Like they all have their own separate lives and Sonic and Co. meets them all as individuals. You know, so they can be their own characters instead of only treated as one massive group, or at least let them have more diverse relationships before grouping up.

      Or something. I dunno, just spitballing really.

  18. Where the hell was Shadow during that 6 month gap?

  19. Why is Ian Flynn a homophobe again...?

    1. Zaysho


      Because people like saying shit on the Internet with no evidence to back it up.

    2. Komodin


      Because lolrandom attention seeker seeks attention at all costs.

      Cause Naugus was a liar?

    4. Eitarou


      Where are these claims.

    5. Tara


      He's not. He's a businessman who has to decide between eating and LGBT representation like the rest of the world.

      He's a pretty vocal LGBT advocate from what I know, actually.

    6. Big Panda
    7. Tara


      The reasons Penders wanted to make Rotor gay was homophobic in itself, though. He wanted Rotor to be because "hey, he's socially awkward and gay people are socially awkward!"

      So I don't blame Flynn for telling him no.

    8. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      @Indigo: because Ken revealed it after he left and Ian would have Ken on his back if he canonised it. Besides he said he would've went along with it if it were revealed during Ken's actual tenure.

    9. Celestia


      IIRC Flynn didn't actually say "no" at all, he literally had no idea about Pender's plans regarding Rotor's sexuality until /after/ Ian had killed off Rotor's would-have-been love interest.

  20. I respect that people are upset at the Sword/Shield Pokedex thing, but I just can’t get my head around why it’s such a deal-breaker for them.

    When I leap into the game, I’ll be too busy trying to figure out what new Pokemon I want on my team than worrying about the old ones that didn’t make the cut, not to mention being too focused on the new locales and features.

    But now I’m learning that apparently Pokemon backlogging is apparently the “whole reason” people buy Pokemon games to begin with? (unless I’m somehow misinterpreting your comment, @Tornado)

    With all do respect, I just don’t understand that reasoning. It’s so...limiting.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      I don't do it either. But people play competitively, spend countless hours raising Pokémon with the perfect stats and moves or simply grow incredibly attached to the Pokémon they have. And that's EXACTLY what the games ask of you. After five Generations of being able to bring all your virtual pets on the journey with you, the decision has now been made that many of them will get left behind. 

      The news doesn't affect me much. I wish more games took the BW approach and focused more on new Pokémon than old ones. But SwSh are going about it horribly.

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      They can still have their favourite in reserve for when they can finally be put into action in whatever the next game will be. Isn’t that enough?

    3. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      That's not the point though. 

    4. Diogenes


      i can get people being disappointed, but this was bound to happen eventually, they simply can't keep increasing the number of pokemon without limit, so i don't see much use in faulting the devs on this. what matters more than sw/sh not having every 'mon is how they're going to handle the issue on a longer scale.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      I always envisioned there would come a day where the series just wiped itself clean in one big swoop. What’s happening here seems to be just that, only at a gradual pace.

    6. Wraith


      I can't wrap my head around their reasoning for excluding Pokemon with how simple the animations are and how much money the IP rakes in per year. They have the resources, but they're more worried about releasing the game on time than with all the features it should have and I can't get with that. 

    7. dbzfan7


      Wouldn't they have to create 3D models for a lot of them? Wouldn't that get really time consuming and difficult? Though I wouldn't know I played some of the sprite games from those days and never cared to press on.

    8. Wraith


      They're reusing the 3D models they already made.

    9. dbzfan7


      Ah well if they already have the models I can understand the complaints, but I wouldn't if they did have to create like a thousand updated polished models and stuff...Pokemon Politics aren't my thing XP

  21. Why is this making me well up with rage...?

      It's so nice to know that they have learned absolutly nothing from the privious adaptations.

    6. Heckboy


      So is the Grinch going to have some stupid tragic backstory now 

    7. Forte-Metallix


      Can't wait to see their Mario redesign.

      And this is the same company that is supposedly making a Mario movie.....cancel it now and save yourself 75 million dollars

      Those are two different faces and I don't see the problem.

  22. Never heard of the show "Clarence" before. Now I'll forever know it as "the show created by a sex offender" ...

    1. Chili Dawg

      it's actually pretty hilarious

      well the pilot was anyway i haven't seen anything more than that

      It's a pretty well done show, really captures the reality of childhood

    3. Milo


      i like the show but i'm really disappointed to hear about..."that" piece of news. -.-

    4. DarkLight


      I never watched it myself. It does make me wonder how or if it'll affect how they'll air the show less frequently now.

    5. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      From what I've heard, the creator is also the voice of the title character. Hmmm...recast?

    6. Jacky


      It's so cute and funny, really love it, nails the aspect of being a kid and childhood

    7. SuperLink


      Luckily, even if you like Clarence, the asshole guy has little to do with it. Read this: http://patrickharpin.tumblr.com/post/90666400624/clarence-head-of-story-reaction

    8. Zaysho


      I'm not into it, but CN's comedy shows rarely grab me. If the show was successful enough, and since it appears Page didn't have much to do with the show anyway, they could just bury his connection to it and keep moving forward with it. The show doesn't need to be canceled just because the creator's an asshole.

    9. Jix Hedgehog

      Jix Hedgehog

      Wouldn't be an issue.. but he voices Clarence ._.

  23. This is actually something I've been meaning to ask: would you be open to classic Sonic titles working in classic-fied versions of modern characters, if they were reintroduced and treated as separate entities from their modern counterparts?

    1. Shade Vortex

      Shade Vortex

      No, I think Classic/Modern should be considered separately. It's bad enough that they want to keep crossing them over.

    2. Dejimon11


      Honestly I'm good. It's best to keep those two series separate we don't need a classic shadow, blaze etc especially considering the classic series has other characters that they can rely on.

    3. Strickerx5


      Eh, don't see much of a point in adding them in if the classics continue to have more simplistic/ non-existent narratives. At the end of the day, what would Rouge be able to do gameplay-wise differently than Knuckles or Shadow vs. Sonic?

      Not seeing much of a reason to add anyone else beyond Amy at this point tbh.

    4. KHCast


      I think silver could be interesting classic gameplay wise tbh, but story wise not really wanting to see them show up.

      i would like to however see classic sprite based versions of some 3D stages 

    5. Ayliffe


      Only if it's Big the Cat

    6. Diogenes


      maybe if they reboot the whole series. it'd be weird if they had classic and modern running in parallel with different versions of originally-modern characters

    7. KHCast


      Well, alternate dimension could be something akin to Boom if we say it's classic is in his own universe, so it wouldn't be too far fetched at that point. Plus, classic and modern have supposedly gone through the same locations(up to 3&k), so stands to reason the same characters may theoretically exist in some form

    8. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      It really does depend on the character for me but mostly no. Someone like Shadow, I wouldn't want him to be in a Classic styled game at all or anyone not really that fitting with the lighthearted tone (e.g. Mephiles, Infinite, Rouge, Silver, Black Arms, Werehog unless the latter is its own game). Even Big and Cream who are lighthearted enough would be hard to fit in gameplay wise, Cream would be too similar to Tails and Big is well... big. Having a large character usually mean less to see on screen and usually slower to compensate for the large sprite.

      A redesigned Blaze, Marine or even Sticks (as a sorta replacement for early Classic Knuckles, you know as a rival) I wouldn't mind seeing if handled well but this is Sonic Team after all and rather want the Chaotix and Fang to return if given those two options. Also wouldn't mind if the Deadly Six appeared as enemies but the Hard Boiled Heavies will do just fine as the role of a non-Eggman villain.
