  1. Because I was in a Genwunner mood:

     

  2. I imagine something cartoonishly slick and devious sounding for Fang, probably with a Bronx accent. Something like Maddie Blaustein's version of Meowth, though she is also no longer with us. Terry Klassen (aka. Dr Quark) might be a good second choice. He's done some good slick weasel types before.
  3. Has anyone tried looking up old songs just because they kept getting played in Looney Tunes cartoons?

      One that was used a few cartoons including two famous piano playing ones (Rhapsody Rabbit and Cat Concerto):

      Funnily enough I heard a song from the old Creative Labs demos and listening to it says I'm sure that I've listened to it on a Looney Tunes/Tom and Jerry cartoon before.

  4. Well they've got Vector, may as well go the whole hog... But I think there's one guy that has tons of potential in the Boom universe, so long as Froggy doesn't get camera shy and run off again. Yeah, I'll give credit the show's actually stuck pretty loyally to his bios for Sonic Heroes and the likes (besides being down and out, though how much he thrives off TV moola still gives some vibes to that). They just need to fine tune the dynamic and stories so his personality shines a bit more. Bringing in his ragtag co detectives might be helpful to that. Then again, even Knuckles, despite being written as a self aware idiot, isn't an incompetent hero per se. One thing though. If Boom DOES get a third season, it will likely officially be the longest running Sonic cartoon so far.
  5. This was pretty decent, but yeah it felt a bit unfocused. I'm not sure where they're going with Vector's character and his chemistry with Sonic. I feel like he's meant to be a blowhard but still kind of good at his job, but the interactions fall a little on the flat side. Sonic being kind of irritable around Vector because he's a TV star was an amusing role reversal of Sonic X though, where Vector was jealous of Sonic's fame. I find it odd they picked the one character whose usually part of a posse to bring in individually, unless they bring in Espio and Charmy later on. Can't complain about one of them being treated as an individual though.....Or any Sonic sidekick for that matter.
  6. So apparently Sonic 3D Blast was going to have 2 player split screen originally:

    I'm actually legitimately bummed they took that out.

  7. Just finished my last day of my current job. And it was a crap one at that. One last kick in the teeth from that craphole.

      What a coincidence, mine too!! I'll start on my new job monday already xD

      Good luck on your quest for a new job @E-122-Psi :)

      Hopefully, though I said the same after the job before that. The job hunt begins.

  8. There's one thing that bugged me about Sally throughout both interpretations:

    1. Despite being 'the cautious one' who was always lecturing Sonic, pretty much all her flawed moments involved her being reckless or overconfident.

    2. Never once did they lampshade the hypocrisy of her being reckless or overconfident despite being 'the cautious one' who always lectured Sonic (they DID do it the first time SOMEONE ELSE did it to HER though).

      Boom despite being MUCH more comedy-first, is actually decent at developing foibles for the cast. I love how Eggman, despite being a buffoon, can play all their flaws against them like a fiddle. That's awesome foliage I'd love to see more of (most Eggmans don't know much more than 'Sonic is cocky' and 'Knuckles is gullible').

    3. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Yeah Designated Heroes was an interesting episode. The closet she gets to being treated like Sally is in Cabin Fever whwre she'll called out for her play but she doesn't apologize. 

    4. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      She was at least still amusing and a butt monkey in Cabin Fever though. Sally doesn't even have that going for her.

    5. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Yeah you've got a point. Who do you think is more of a butt monkey in Boom: Tails or Amy?

    6. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Hard to say. Amy's ego probably makes her fall harder though.

    7. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Yeah plus she doesn't as many happy endings as Tails.

    8. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Tails did have one of the first though (Translate This).

      I think every hero has had one or two bad endings except maybe Sticks (though I haven't seen the whole series yet).

    9. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      You make a good point. I think the season 2 premiere counts as one for Sticks

      This is all interesting to me, as I am controlling Sally in the RP on this site. I'm trying not to fall into the same personality traps she usually ends up in, and this is giving me ideas.

    11. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      @Polkadi: Key rule. Make her character FUN.

      Even if she's a killjoy, make that entertaining in execution.

    12. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Go the Boom!Amy route.

    13. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Except maybe less therapy methods of course. XD

    14. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      That's fair.

    15. NikoS

      NikoS

      to me the times when she points out and blame herself for failing kinda compensates for the fact of she being reckless at times despite being "the cautious one", at least post-SGW-wise

    16. Polkadi

      Polkadi

      Y'know what, it's funny, because I've already taken Boom!Amy's "I'm totally not in love with Sonic" from her and into Sally.

      And also, Amy's personality in Sonic Forces seems pretty close to Boom!Amy's as of now, and she seems to be a tactician for the resistance. HMM...

    17. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      @NikoS It is an improvement.

    18. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      @NikoS The whole 'blaming herself' element seems more to place the pity party onto her however, especially since when she screws up it's always overly dramatic and we're meant to be feel total sympathy for her. She's not allowed to make a complete fool of herself like the others.

    19. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      @E-122-Psi Never really got that impression

    20. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Notice whenever Sally is wrong it's INCREDIBLY heart wrenching and sad while most of the other characters are allowed to just be a butt monkey (you know except the ones who barely have any moments in the first place, eg. Bunnie or Rotor).

    21. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      What was the best Sally was written?

      You make a good point. 

    22. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      I thought Satam Season 1 Sally was decent, even if she still suffered this problem. Sonic and the Secret Scrolls for example, where she's conveyed as overly stubborn and rivalistic about Sonic concerning her plan with the bi plane (even if you can tell she's thought some of it out, just not key details, which sort of works with her character). Sonic points out the bad logic when she cockily refuses to admit she nearly died because of this and joys in ribbing her for it.

      She was an ass in Sonic Boom though (episode not the show). Way to waste time while the guy who sacrificed his life for you is tortured and robotised, and not show a hint of sadness over it either.

    23. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      @E-122-Psi Yeah that was soulless of her.

    24. NikoS

      NikoS

      I see your point, about the "overly dramatic" thing, can you remember a time (besides the ambushed arc) where this happened? My memory is failing me right now as i'm recalling just that one.

      also, on the Ambushed story, i got the feel that at that time her reaction was justifiable, considering that her word of action almost got the whole team killed/captured.

      One can argue that the decision of trying to get the chaos emerald at those conditions (i think Sally herself said it was obviously a trap) was stupid and made just to show that she got flaws, but i personally disagree, seeing that they were trying to get one chaos emerald out of Eggman's hand, they knew it was going to be an ambush, but not that level of an ambush (like 3 e-series robots +forcefield), Sally's plan was good, but Eggman's plan was better. (at least this is what i got after reading the arc many, many times, sry if i made this longer than needed)

    25. RedFox99

      RedFox99

      Plus they needed it to restore the planet it seems so they had to take risks.

    26. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Pretty much anytime Sally makes a mistake and it is recognised by the story, she mopes about it and needs comfort. Granted this may be due to most of her mistakes escalating into over the top consequences (eg. characters being robotised, NICOLE being reformatted) while the likes of Sonic and Knuckles just keep having near misses.

  9. I'm pretty sure I've came across at least half a dozen N Sane Trilogy lifestreams on Youtube from Japanese up loaders just now. Yeah, Crash is definitely still popular there.

  10. The appeal of a goofy badass

    I tend to love goofy but still semi competent characters, since there's something fully fleshed out about a character that manages to do amazing things and yet never quite keeps up a mystique for themselves (and sometimes doesn't even try). Full on dignified badasses tend to get boring for me, they're just largely positive aces (part of the reason I found Sonic kind of dull in X, where he only had a handful of minor comical or fallible fluctuations). I also tend to like those type of heroes that are underestimated, they're not serious or majestic, and yet when push comes to a shove they can be just as important and brilliant as any other hero. Intelligence and power come in all sorts of different forms, so I love when there isn't just a limit of 'competent' and 'incompetent' in fictional universes. It's the same reason I love when the lucid serious minded character is granted moments of acting like a complete buffoon. The Pokemon anime has recently been trying to spruce up Ash's character after being protagonist for so long and being considered dull by a few fans for example. The Black and White series infamously reset him and made him a bumbling idiot again, outraging fans of his progression, XY went the other direction and made him a respected ace, annoying other fans who felt his character had been diluted and became even more boring. Sun and Moon seems to be taking the middle route, making him buffoonish and wacky, but still rather clever and experienced, basically the best of both worlds. Another of my favourites (as visibly obvious) is Crash Bandicoot. Crash's personality generally comes off as simple, almost animalistic, and yet most of the time, Crash is conveyed as pretty reliable, if not rather crafty against his foes. He's expressive and sweet due to his buffoonish character, but actually pretty competent, and if his bonds with Coco and the Nitro Kart rivals are anything to go by, a pretty sweet fella.
  11. Legendary TV Entertainer Bruce Forsyth Has Died Aged 89

    Sad to hear another member of media as I grew up is gone. I mostly know him for his quiz show stuff in the nineties, he always seemed charming and he kept at it till only his final couple of years.
  12. After unlocking one Mania's secrets:

    Spoiler

    Taxman/Stealth should so do a Mean Bean Machine/Puyo Puyo remake next.

     

    1. Daisy

      Daisy

      There is literally no need for that

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Why? 

      Puyo Puyo is still a thing and just recently got Puyo Puyo Tetris in the west

    3. Kiah

      Kiah

      You don't know how happy that would make me...

      Spoiler

      I love Mean Bean Machine as I love puzzle games in general and seeing Sonic there with the Mania boss fight of it (as he was absent from the original) had me grinning ear to ear 😃

       

  13. For anyone interested in hearing the full vocal versions of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies themes:

     

  14. A quick query: I pre ordered Mania and got the themes and avatars, but they're only available to the user who downloaded them. Is there any way to make them available to the other users?

    1. Polkadi

      Polkadi

      Strange. They work for all users on mine.

      I don't know how to fix that. Maybe uninstall and redownload on your user?

  15. Amy controls in future Mania title

    If she or another character DOES make it into a Mania sequel, I'd love for another element from Advance to make it's way in after so long. FOUR PLAYER RACE MODE.
