  1. Everyone seems to have read IDW Sonic 24 and I can’t get access to the bloody thing. IDW don’t even have it on their app yet.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Check the app and a banner of Issue 24 will appear in the banners bit at the top of the app. Tap that. 

      The issue is up and buyable, IDW just haven't updated the recent releases tab.

  2. The Tiger Who Came to Tea was a real mixed bag for me.

    I loved the animation, and the Robbie Williams song is nice and catchy, but it basically adapted the book as faithfully as could ever be possible, non-existent substance and all.

    I love how the tiger just proceeds to eat this poor mother and daughter out of house and home (with terrible etiquette too!) and making a mess as he goes, while mum and daughter just watch him without really giving a fuck.

  3. “Get mum a locket” I said.

    ”It’s easy, simple, and sweet” I said.

    -I said all this to myself while attempting painstakingly to cut two tiny photographs into heart(ish) shapes a for a locket and failing multiple times.

  4. Silver’s future shouldn’t really have that problem at all, since it’s forever changing.
  5. The father of my father or mother will be taking legal action against Saint Nicholas so vigorous that it he will lose possession of his pantaloons.

  8. I just realised we haven’t had a teaser for the next Pokemon movie yet. We usually get it a few days before Christmas.

  9. I was initially going to say, “well why are Eggman, Rough, Tumble, and Starline there?” Then I realised upon closer inspection that they’re looking in through a window.
  10. You can only fit so many characters on a cover like this.
  11. Quote

    When Harry places the Sorting Hat on his head, its initial reaction is to place Harry in House Slytherin, the house for naughty people. After Harry strongly objects to the designation, the Sorting Hat reluctantly complies, placing him in Gryffindor instead.

    The Sorting Hat’s certainty haunts Harry for the rest of the book, the boy believing himself to be some kind of imposter, a Gryffindor in name only. Until, Dumbledore reassures him that the Sorting Hat’s analysis was secondary to Harry’s gut feeling and sense of identity. 

    I’m sure there’s a metaphor in there, somewhere.

      (Not to keep harping on about the JK Rowling controversy or anything, I just found this observation fascinating)

  12. I love Tom so fucking much.

  13. Remember when the writer of the earlier Sonic X comic issues thought Amy could fly?

    1. Ferno


      i mean if she can turn invisible what can't she do

      If Knuckles could fly in the OVA, I'm willing to believe it.

      It was the artist, based on a misinterpretation of the written line "Amy, Rouge and Tails pull Big out of the hole".

  14. Robot Chicken finally did another Sonic sketch

    Ah crap, nothing here appeals to me.

    There’s not even a Doctor Who one this time.

  16. New dfs ad with Wallace and Gromit!

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      It's interesting to me how Lady Tottington is always used for these ads. 

    2. Big Panda

      Big Panda

      She is? I remember seeing her in one ad back around the time Wererabbit came out, but I don’t recall seeing her in anything else.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      Idk, I'm nearly sure there's been at least a few others with her.

    4. DanJ86


      It's a little bittersweet for me to hear Wallace while knowing that Peter Sallis has passed. But Ben Whitehead sounds so identical to him with his performance that it's a shock to the system. I didn't even notice that Ben took over when Peter retired, his first performance being Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      I don't think Ben's first appearance was Curse, Peter played Wallace right up to World of Inventions. Ben mainly played Wallace in stuff like Grand Adventures, and advertisements. He could've voiced him in the Wererabbit tie-in game as well, although I'm not sure if he did or not.

      That said, he's a fantastic soundalike for Wallace.

      He is. I never even noticed when the switch happened.

  17. David Walliams liked Rowling’s tweet and I want to fucking die.

      Watching and enjoying “The Tiger Who Came to Tea” on Christmas Eve is going to be one hell of an exercise.

      I think you need to step away from this stuff, you're really stressing yourself out.

      True. I’m not even ON Twitter, so I dunno why the fuck I’m so attached to it.

  18. Known about that one since the issue was solicited.
  19. “Mum, by any chance, have you got me any Harry Potter stuff for Christmas?”

    *knowingly* “You’ll have to wait and see”

    *with a slight air of unenthusiasm* “yaaaaaaay”

      (I really, really want to keep enjoying Harry Potter but, I’m just not feeling it right now, and I’m not sure if I ever will)

    2. buranflakes


      Honestly, it can be hard, but sometimes you really have to separate a work from it's creator in order to enjoy it. I haven't gone too deep into Harry Potter myself, but from what I've heard the books/movies/etc. really don't reflect Rowling's more, shall we say, "problematic" views.

    3. GentlemanX


      My fianceė was super into HP growing up too, but has waned for the same reasons. She still likes the old stuff and the world fine, but has no interest in say new material from Rowling like the Fantastic Beasts series.

    4. Failinhearts


      @buranflakes has a strong point. I have learned to do this after the John Lasseter debacle long ago. Pixar and his works continue to inspire me, and his movies continue to be important, impactful and brilliant. He as a person, is not. The same can happen with Harry Potter.

    5. SenEDDtor Missile

      @Failinhearts Separating a person from their work is a really odd thing. I think a good part of what makes it easier to do for some compared to others depends on how much you associate that one person with that work, how long ago was the work, and how much the person fucked up.

      In the case of Pixar, I tend to not really associate any Pixar work with Lasseter because ultimately it's the work of an entire team of people, so it's easier to disconnect him because he's ultimately only one part of it, not all of it.

      But then you have JK Rowling, or even further back, JonTron. They're the sole people who more or less create all of their work with little input from others. This of course means that their work is heavily reflective of their biases and views, even if subconsciously, so it's much hard to disconnect them from their work and thus makes the pain in supporting a work you see as good, but tied to a despicable person who made said work much stronger and more difficult to ignore.

      Plus, both Rowling and JonTron's fuckups are pretty fresh and recent, which only further increases the immediate connection.

    6. Big Panda

      @Failinhearts Lasseter is a different case, though.

      Lasseter is no longer associated with Disney or Pixar, so he’s not getting our money anymore.

      Rowling is still very much the head honcho of HP, and any money given to the franchise would be going to her.

    7. Failinhearts


      I suppose that's fair. Just trying to look on the bright side. But yeah, I wouldn't financially support Rowling either.

    8. buranflakes


      @SenEDDtor Missile oh Jontron is is a great example, and one I can really relate to because I used to really like his videos. Despite what I said about separating a creator from their works, I’ve actually found it kind of hard to watch his videos since I’ve learned of his “problematic” views.

  20. You wanna know the kicker? That medal is never brought up again. It’s never explained where it came from or how it got there. The only follow up we ever get is in a response to a fan letter issues later, where it’s said to be the work of Robo-Robotnik/Eggman.
  21. I’m glad to see Tracey again. I thought he was taking a break, last I heard?
  22. Who’s got LGBT (especially T) Harry Potter headcanons?

    1. Rabid-Coot


      I have no head canons but now you mention it (especially T) there must be something in a setting that has the identity theft potion and you can be an animal for a while abilities.

    1. GentlemanX


      A compelling argument, but it is worth noting that both Nadia and Atlantis were inspired by the same source material, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea; Nadia even keeps the ship's name the Nautilus. Other differences include the Grandis mentioned is more Jessie from Team Rocket than Helga from Atlantis, and is not the first officer shown in the comparison picture. Nadia and Kida are probably the most similar elements between the two works, especially with the imagery related to the crystal. Still, there's a lot about Nadia's plot and characters that are significantly different from Atlantis, so I don't think this is on the same level as the Lion King/Kimba comparisons.

      The character designs are pretty uncanny though.

      The similarities between Vinny and the doctor and their Nadia counterparts is way too coincidental.
