    Official Sonic 2006 topic

    Oh my god I always wondered what the hell was going on with Sonic’s hand/fist on this art. It looks like it has some blurry fingers coming out from behind it. And then I saw the Japanese box How...?
  2. Even if that KH3 Realm of Sleep theory turns out to be true, what exactly are people hoping will come of it?

    1. KHCast


      For square to reference every point brought up to validate fans that spent months on the theory 

    2. JosepHenry


      Many problems and "wtf moments" KH3 had will be explained.

      A whole drastic change for the future of the series. that things are not as simple as people think, that there is themes that have been present that people didn't caught on yet or are just ignoring, about relationship between the characters, what will come next, and what hasn't been explicitly said yet.

      I am very excited for the future of the series, the theory being right or not.

      “That things are not as simple as people think” pretty sure Kingdom Hearts needs more simplicity, not complexity 

    4. JosepHenry


      Things will get more and more simple from now on.

      That’s not quite what I meant.

      According to the theory, if I’m interpreting it properly, Sora fell into what is essentially an alternate timeline that takes place in the RoS, and it supposedly happened at the end of an earlier unseen version of KH3’s events in which darkness prevailed and light expired.

      If that’s the case...then what? Is Sora going to be stuck in the dream for all eternity with every game thereafter taking place in the dream, or are people expecting Sora to wake up at some point where he left off in the previous, unseen timeline?

      Ugh...I’m sorry, but this theory is just incredibly confusing and is honestly explained very poorly.

    6. JosepHenry


      Actually, the theory will get a massive update explaining these points correctly

      Just know this timeline is as real as can be

      It was just a means of circumventing fate, just like in khux

      That's all I can say for now

    7. KHCast


      So you just admitted they poorly got these points across.

      And see the problem I have with this theory, is it’s based on hints and maybes, and not simply just explained narratively in some form. This is the kinda stuff that shouldn’t be narratively cryptic and bread crumbed. Sora being in a alternate timeline is something that should be addressed clearer at some point in the game.

    It’s out on the IDW App.
  4. I read that tweet on my phone when I woke up early this morning before going back to sleep again. I honestly thought until now that I dreamt it, because it is so bizarrely out of character for him to bring up something Ian wrote.

    2003: Archie can’t be gay, that would ruin his image.

    2016: what if Archie banged his teacher?

      Seriously what the fuck happened to make Archie Comics change their tune this drastically in just over a decade?

      the more interesting question is how someone that got C&D's ended up actually working for the company that got him C&D'd anyway

      it would be like if bomber games was hired to make the upcoming Streets of Rage 4

      not that there's anything wrong with that but there's some great irony to be had here

      @Ernest the Panda i'm guessing part of the change has to do with them trying to refocus on their core brands and moving away from the licensed properties (the sonic/mega man/etc. videogame comics and other stuff)

      but at the same time they're seem to be more willing to take risks and do new stuff. like having the riverdale tv show that's a teen drama. they've also started getting into some really bizarre shit, remember when they have the archie characters crossover with the freaking predator of all franchises a few years back? lmao

      They’re doing a sequel to that btw

      Hold up just one second...



      She was never really dead at all, just in a coma!


    Jesus fucking Christ.

    I hope he stays safe from this psycho.

  9. The secret super heartless in Keyblade Graveyard? It’s actually pretty easy once you’ve levelled and memorised the patterns. I’ve battled and defeated it multiple times out of sheer boredom.
  10. One of things I will always miss about Archie Sonic are the graphic novel collections.

    Can you guess why?

      I somewhat read that as "IDK"

    Live Action Detective Pikachu Movie (Summer 2019)

    Awww, this one is sweet.

    Two questions:

    1) How heavy is that toy truck she tripped over exactly? It barely moves when her foot hits it when it should’ve skidded across the floor at least a few feet.

    2) Who the fuck puts a coffee table smack dab in the middle of a large living room miles away from the chairs?

    1. Osmium


      This is the most efficient commercial ever. Goes seamlessly from the energy bar to a traumatizing PSA. 

    2. SupahBerry


      Knowing this is mostly a shocker, i found this ad oddly hilarious.

      It's from watching someone doing the "walks around the set talking to camera" crap finally shutting TF up from forgetting to watch where she's going. Also makes me think of this-

    Archie Sonic Main Discussion

    I realised I still had these hiding away, so I thought I might as well share them (it’s not like I could get in trouble for it, right?) Quick backstory: back in 2015, Sonic Super Special Magazine was set to continue with its fourteenth issue, which would have featured content relating to the Worlds Unite crossover, among other things, but it ended up never releasing, and the series as a whole went on what would have been a two year hiatus (it was set to return in early 2017 with a new fourteenth issue, but...yeah). However, this cancelled version of issue 14, through what I can only assume to be a technical error of some kind, very briefly saw the light of day, digitally, on the Archie Comics App. I was lucky enough to grab the issue before it was hastily removed. While I no longer have access to it today, I did manage to take screenshots of the bonus pages!
  14. Apparently the Powerpuff Girls was given an incredibly short-lived UK redub on Channel 5 back in the day.

    Normally, the only time American kids shows get redubbed here is if they’re educational and broadcasters want their young audience to learn British English from watching them. Ignoring the fact PPG isn’t even an educational show, the UK voice actors are acting with American accents anyway, so...what was even the point?

  15. Watching Bridge to Terabithia.

    AKA: the film with the most misleading trailer in the history of misleading trailers.

    IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog

    I thought they said the opposite? Specifically that the past events in the comics were “inspired by” the games but are not supposed to be thought of as the same. I personally find that idea really cool. It’s like if Pre-SGW Archie Sonic had started at the 220’s or something, and you go in with the knowledge that events inspired by the games had already happened in the past and, in this instance, that’s totally accurate because a lot of the adaptations back then were incredibly loose.

    Sonic Headcanons

    No explination needed. Share your headcanons here: any continuity and subject (as long as they keep to the rules) are welcome. -Everyone involved in the events of Sonic Generations only partially remember said events. Specifically, everything that happened in the white world eventually faded from everyone's minds. Classic Sonic, Tails and Eggman forget everything that happened the moment they returned to their own time. -Human/Mobian romances are seen in a similar way to same-sex couples in the real world: they're gaining exceptance the world over, but is still considered by some to be "controversial" subject. Like same-sex couples, human/mobian couples are unable to procreate (regardless of the genders involved), which leads to a lot of couples seeking surrogacy or adoption as an alternative. Archie Sonic-specific: -The Super Genesis Wave was the final "Day of Fury". Additionally, the mural in the Hidden Palace, from the perspective of the old canon, was predicting the event, specifically, Sonic and Eggman during the final moments of Worlds Collide. Some details were inaccurate, but the basic premise was intact (Super Sonic facing Eggman in a giant mech which had Chaos energy at its disposal (reprented by the Master Emerald)). -Sonic still experienced memories of the old canon in Worlds Collide, even from the perspective of the new one. It was a side-effect of time and space being distupted.

    Today, I learnt that Riverdale wasn’t the first Archie media to have a black Pop Tate.

      Man, such nostalgia

      What’s weird is this movie is supposedly set in the same universe as Archie’s Weird Mysteries (both were made by DiC and have mostly the same voice cast), where Pop was still white.

    ...it means they are a classic odd-couple in this adventurous team-up.
  20. This excerpt from Dogasu's Backpack does a good job of explaining how the Pokemon saying their own name concept is handled better in the Japanese version:


    One of the things fans generally accept about pokemon in this TV series is that they can only say their names due to some physical limitation that prevents them from being able to say anything else. Real-world dolphins are said to be super intelligent but can't produce human speech because they don't have the proper vocal organs necessary to produce the same sounds. Pokemon are kind of like that, right?

    So let's look at Purin. In Japanese, its ability to say "pu" or "ri" or "puri" is a completely believable set of sounds for a magical cartoon balloon monster to be able to make, right?  They're easy, almost baby-ish noises. But now let's look at the English version. "Jigglypuff," as fine as a name as that is, has a lot of unique vowel and consonant combinations and it's difficult to imagine any wild creature being able to perform the lingual gymnastics required to say the name. We can accept that this little pink ball can make "ggl" sound but can't say something simple like "hello"? It can't sing real words? Really?!

    1. Diogenes


      all pokemon are in fact able to talk

      they just refuse to talk to humans

  21. In the anime, when new Pokemon are discovered, are they just named after the sound they make?

    But then, not every Pokemon says their own name. Otherwise the Charmander line would go Charmander > Charmeleon > Brrraaarrrghhggh

      Is it Victreebel?

      But seriously, this thing isn't my favorite, but I DO love it for it's screams int he anime. lmao

    4. mayday2592


      Its weird since it does say Bell a couple times in a deeper voice when it first shows up in the anime.

    5. Ellipsis-Ultima


      @Waveshocker Sigma I freaking thought you were referring to Zapdos at first.

    6. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      @Ellipsis-Ultima Nono, that's "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW" the Electric/Flying type. Totally different. lol

    Wait what?
  24. Are there certain preferences that people have been known to have that you just simply cannot fathom?

    Like people who like their tea/coffee/whatever hot. Not warm, HOT.

      Why are pickles a default ingredient on so many burgers? It seems like a lot of people ask for them off anyways. Put them on there by request, or put a separate pickle burger option on the menu or something. What I'm trying to say here is: fuck pickles.

      Also (and this is the one that will likely start an actual world war someday), not a huge fan of thin crust pizza; although some are definitely better than others. I like my pizzas thick and bready, and the one we have at work is essentially a saltine cracker.

    3. KHCast


      Milk going first in the bowl. Just...no

    4. NegaMetallix


      People who enjoy eating cold pizza, especially those who prefer it. I just... how?! How the heck can anyone look at a fresh hot pizza and immediately think "...Eh, I'll have it later" and just let it go cold?

      @Speederino Man, I almost wanna give you a thumbs-up for the pickle thing. But then you mention the pizza thing and now I'm just conflicted...

  25. In Archie Sonic #180, the way the first story ends (Enerjak Reborn prelude) and the second (Rush Adventure adaptation) begins kind of makes it look as if Sonic and Tails set off in the Tornado to go fight Enerjak only to get caught in that storm and wind up in Blaze’s world on the way.
