  1. Huh, old design baby Sonic doesn’t actually look too bad imo.

    I prefer the final version of course, but this version is still more tolerable to look at than its teenage counterpart.

      When it’s fully rendered I mean.

    2. PC the Hedgehog

      Could you imagine growing up from cute lil' baby Sonic to the monstrosity that was his original design? Talk about a glow-down.

  2. I forgot about this one that happened to me in Mania once: I have no idea what triggered it, but when I was going through Press Garden the regular music track suddenly got replaced by the “act clear” music which played after whatever jingle I’d just triggered. It’s a bit hard to describe what I mean. Basically, after I came out of the invincibility jingle (or it might have been a 1-up jingle) the act clear music kicked in instead of the Press Garden music, followed by silence (since the track doesn’t loop). Soon after I got a 1-up, when the jingle ended, the act clear music played again, and so on. I can’t remember how I managed to get out of it.
  3. There’s no indication that robotisation exists in IDW.
  4. Question: if Bunnie was in IDW, how would her half-robot parts be interpreted?
  5. You uncover an artifact from another dimension. It’s the most recent issue of Archie’s Sonic the Hedgehog, from a timeline where it’s still running, and the reboot never happened.

    You open the comic. What do you see?

    1. Jack out of the comics!

      Jack out of the comics!

      Sonic is finally dead, killed by the metal virus, Sally becomes the protagonist with on and off boyfriend Geoffrey, meanwhile  Antoine and Bunnie have babies, Tails dates Mina, Silver secretly stalkers the Freedom Fighters, Amy goes into depression with her childish brain trauma or whatever, Scourge is king of the multiverse and dumped Fiona, Shard gets rebuilt and marries NICOLE, they have baby Sonic-bots. The echidnas never left, instead Thrash went straight into the trash, Robo-Robotnik stays with his mind gone and goes completely bonkers as Snively's puppy dog, a.k.a. the main antagonist. Rotor marries Big for fanservice. It's still a well written fanfiction.

      Another win and loss: Characters I like from the Reboot are likely gone, but character I lost from the pre-Reboot are still around.

      That and Endangered Species’ proper ending.

  6. Yes, but if he still had a whole comic to play with, he’d have had more space to tell his stories, making for faster pacing. As would Karl Bollers have had in Sonic.
  7. Yes. I often still wonder how all the stories from 2000-2003 would’ve gone had the Knuckles series and maybe the Super Specials not been canned.
  8. Since we’re venting over the current crisis; this whole thing is agonizing. I’m very worried about going out due to living with an elderly, asthmatic mother, who herself is having a hard to time ordering shopping. It’s also not helping my depression none. I’m no longer able to focus on my own mental health because of the more pressing matters at hand.

      :( I can understand. What an awful situation. I hope you can get the ordering straightened out so it becomes easier.

  9. On the subject of things that could be added to a potential SA1 remake, I wouldn’t mind if they made the final story a bit meatier.

    Maybe, for instance, add an additional action stage where all the characters go around the ruined city to find the drained emeralds or something.

    1. Diogenes


      no weird gravity eyeballs this time please

    2. JezMM


      I'd dig this for sure.  Due to playing Sonic Adventure 2 first, Sonic Adventure 1's Last Story was kind of disappointing gameplay-wise (and likewise... Heroes then failed to live up to SA2's standard also).

    3. Kuzu


      It was pointed out ti me how despite needing to play everyone's stories for the final one, except for Sonic, none of the other characters actually matter in the last story.

  10. This and the Anastasia story were the only good things to come out of this movie.

    1. Osmium


      Funny, I was just thinking about Cinderella II the other day 

  11. They had control over Archie too. They just didn’t care.
  12. I just discovered one of the trailers for the Mulan remake uses an intrumental of “Reflection” and NO DISNEY, YOU DO NOT GET TO TEASE ME LIKE THAT HOW VERY DARE YOU


    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      They also have notShang say "I will make men out of you!". Which is awful.

  13. Added information on the JAPANESE release of IDW Sonic!
  14. They show off a physical copy at 49:53-54:01
  15. I can’t tell if that’s supposed to be 5th August or 8th May.
  16. I just thought of something; aren’t comic/graphic novel covers usually created after the interior work is completed?
  17. It’s kind of hilarious just how much the Babylon Rogues got screwed over by Archie:

    • Sonic Riders tie-in where they debuted never got a graphic novel reprint, not even in the Sonic Select volume that was specifically dedicated to collecting those kinds of stories.
    • The full graphic novel printing of their Universe arc got last-minute canned when the SU graphic novel series as whole crapped out.
    • The only exposure said arc ever got in the reprint department was the reprinting of part 1 on three different occassions, one of which was a half-printing.
    • And, of course, they never got to debut in the post-SGW timeline beyond a cover cameo and a couple of mentions.
    1. E-122-Psi


      Not to mention their final official appearance had them reduced to bitches by both the Battle Kukku and Sonic, with Sonic pretty much telling them to never come back or he'll wreck them again.

      It's jarring how many final appearances in Archie's original timeline felt dourly handled due to the abrupt reboot. The only one that really got some redemption at the eleventh hour was Silver. I wonder how much of this was intentional or not since they had to know at some point they weren't gonna have to bother making a proper ending.

  18. The first issue of Archie’s Super Duck is out. You guys, this is the greatest thing Archie have made since Sonic. Seriously.
  19. https://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Doctor_Who_and_the_Time_War_(short_story)

    I suggest we start referring to the War Doctor as “Shrödinger’s Doctor”.

  20. Has Casper even met any of these characters?

  21. Lamar Wells has done that a lot with his covers. You can also see a few familiar-looking zombots on his issue 19 cover.
  22. >see’s there’s a new version of “Five Children and It” coming out.

    >confused as to why they renamed it “Four Kids and It”.

    >trailer says “based on the book by Jacqueline Wilson”.

    Me: “...I’m sorry, what?”

    >looks it up and discovers Wilson wrote a book based on “Five Children and It” called “Four Children and It”.

    Me: “ooooh. ...what?”

  23. This is painfully bad.

    1. Spookilator


      God, I hate how Peter has become such a man child.

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      That’s the least of this cutaway’s problems

  24. Here’s a complaint I have that doesn’t involve at the actual story content:
  25. The world doesn’t deserve Jodie Whittaker.
