  1. Eeeeh, not really. It's more like they made Heroes and was like "Oh crap, Amy needs a Tails equivalent for her team! Let's just use the new rabbit girl from Advance 2. That'll work." And they kept trying to push the two together after that with it not really working much. Let's not forget that Cream's first game had her either on her own or working with Sonic, Tails and Knuckles with Amy nowhere in sight outside of a non-canon bonus unlock. I still find it funny how Cream worked way better as Blaze's sidekick instead. Wish we'd gotten more of that instead of Marine ruining things.
  2. ...Pretty sure I just said that yeah. But that's not important right now. In all honesty, I'm having a hard time imagining what this switch could mean without knowing how the Metal Virus arc ends. The hiatus keeping us from seeing that end for awhile isn't going to make matters any easier, either. Unless I'm rememebring wrong and we actually will be getting that ending before said hiatus.
  3. I guess I'm going to be the sole outlier here who really isn't looking forward to the comic being written by Evan due to my strong dislike of Silver and of Blaze being anywhere near him. I'll give things a shot, but if that and other character depictions go how I expect, I might be dropping off after the Metal Virus arc is done. But not yet. I still want to know what becomes of Sonic himself after all of this. I'll definitely check out that "Bad Guys" thing, though. If there's anything I've always loved about Ian's writing, it's how he handles the villains.
  4. So I just watched the latest vid from Game Apologist on Sonic and I'm very surprised on how good I found it since I don't follow the guy. I think it's something that warrants a good watch from everybody here and inside or outside the community in general. honestly.

      initially their rantsona thing I'd often see in their thumbnail previews put me off of watching them but I guess I'll give it a watch at some point

      You'll have to put up with his ranting here as well @Ferno, but is a very good watch.

    3. Strickerx5


      Currently in the process of watching it (have it in a tab for background noise whenever I'm working). While he overall makes a lot of good points, he does sort of gloss over actual criticism some have with the classics with the tired old "well it wasn't that bad" approach in reasoning.

      @Strickerx5 Ha, that was actually my one gripe with the video overall. But I appreciate the points he does have and the feel good approach from the video, despite not agreeing entirely with some of it.

  5. Absolutely not. The entire gimmick behind Silver is lost if he stays in the past. Then he'd really just be this aimless fish out of water with no real place or purpose who is just "there" for no reason and pops up at random. He either needs to become more of an "all eras" time travelling hero that properly corrects mistakes in the time stream without it being so incredibly vague and with some actual deductive reasoning and problem solving behind it, or he needs to learn how to face his own problems in the fuure head on and just deal with it, which was always he answer they had Silver reach at the end of his stories anyways before thy freak out and reset things again because they can't think of any different way to handle him. All of the other major Sonic characters have set ups built to where any one of them could stand strong on their own for an arc except for him. He needs to get set up and changed to same way without chaining anyone else to him or he's not worth the time and needs to stay gone. As it stands now, Silver is just feels like every single bland anime protagonist who is wishy-washy and barely thinks, believes anything anyone tells him and doesn't have much of any character motivation aside from "I gotta save the world by any means necessary, I guess" and can't really carry a story on his own, so he has to have someone else be around to drawn people in and try to make him seem better. It's irritating.
  6. It's canon to itself, obviously. Not sure what's to be confused by. It's a promotional anime for the Heroes spinoff stuff which is practically an entiely separate franchise line from mainline Dragon Ball. Think of what you normally think of as DB being the main Mega Man game line and Heroes and it's anime being the EXE series. (Or NT or whatever else you people call it)
  7. Man...I haven't had a Sonic game that I genuinely loved and enjoyed since Generations and that was 2011. Like, something I played, went back to several times and still loved it.

    Haven't even had a spinoff I've loved since the All Star Racing games and Zero Gravity. And if the Storybook games count, then Black Knight would be the biggest one.

    Man, this past decade has kinda sucked for me, Sonic wise.

    1. Zaysho


      Up until the run was cancelled, I had the Archie comics to satisfy what I wanted out of the series since the games from that period weren't as interesting (though generally not bad, but they were mostly just there). I guess there's IDW now, which is pretty good but it doesn't really do it for me the same way despite having most of the same team behind it.

      Sometimes I think it's just age catching up to me, but I dunno. I still like Sonic but I've just grown apathetic to the newer stuff.

      Sonic Generations, while not a great game, was definitely still good at least.  I really took it for granted though, because since that one every Sonic game released has been utterly mediocre to bloody awful. The IDW comic seems really good but I haven’t had a chance to read it, and the movie was decent! 

      The games have definitely been the weakest Sonic related thing for the past decade.

    3. Kuzu


      It might be because I'm older and therefore, less tolerant of certain things but the entire franchise has just become less interesting to me in the past 10 years.

      It's why I just delved into other franchises, because I don't really get thr feeling Sonic as a franchise cares all that much about its older consumers beyond just throwing surface level fanservice at them.

      It's kind how people feel about Pokemon nowadays, but I can at least still enjoy the basic gameplay from there.

      Same about the games. Wait... Have you played Mania? I loved that. Besides games, I've had the movie and IDW to satisfy my monthly dose of Sonic, which I needed. I still think Sonic's other media like tv, comics and now cinema work a lot better than the games, despite Sonic originating as a videogame franchise, that's maybe due to the fact that Sonic Team is not capable of producing good games atm. Meanwhile, other developers, Paramount, the comic artists and Ian Flynn, they all do a fantastic job IMO. The comics have actually picked up quality from Archie which I don't remember enjoying lately.

    5. Jango


      Tell me you haven't played Mania yet

    6. Kuzu


      Mania is the only video game that I have legit enjoyed, and even that feels more like the exception than the rule.

      It really fucking annoys me that the media I'm most invested in this series is the worst handled one.

    7. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Yes, everyone. I've played Mania. No, I didn't forget it.

      I just don't like it.

  8. I can't stop listening to GaMetal's Void Termina remix on loop. Help. 


  9. Scenario: The next 3 Sonic games are a continuous adventure arc featuring the duo of Sonic and one other character being playable. Which character do you choose?

    The Catch: No Tails.

    1. Diogenes
    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Classic Sonic. Three continuous arc is just Generations plot each time, and every game opens with Green Hill.

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Rookie of course! You'd honestly think they'd let go of such a genius idea to have yer own OC co-star in the games?

    4. JezMM


      Any of the Black Knight secondary characters are the obvious and most commercially viable choices but my biased opinion says Amy coz hell yeah let's see 'em as a total power-couple-who-aren't-an-actual-couple.

      Cream because she finally needs to get the respect she deserves

    11. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      @Ellipsis-Ultima @Thigolf These two have the correct best answers.

  10. I want a Sonic Musou/Dynasty Warriors game that also serves as a sequel and spinoff story from Sonic and the Black Knight made similarly to how P5S is looking.

  11. I want a remix/remaster of this Forces Final Boss remix with real instruments because I love the extra melodies he added into it. This was already a song I really liked a lot and this take on it adds that extra bit of dynamic notes and emotion I think it could've used. I'll definitely be listening to this one a lot.

    1. Adamabba


      I forgot how much I liked Forces' final boss theme. 

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Yup, a track so good that they somehow made two different versions for the game and the soundtrack that sound like two halves of one theme.

      But that's why we're here to stick them back together. lol https://www.dropbox.com/s/u33n1efw8og7mjm/3-30 Mega Death Egg Robot Phase 3 - The Final Battle.mp3?dl=0

  12. You know, I never really ever saw Sonic as "cute" even when in the Genesis days and never liked the idea of him that way, either. Movie Sonic, however, might just be one gigantic exception for me. Dude's adorable and I just might be totally fine with that.

    1. Strickerx5


      I feel like movie sonic's cuteness stems more from the tragedy of him seemingly being lonely af. He's just trying to keep himself entertained which fits his base character very well.

      Classic sonic, on the other hand, is only really made that way by ST because of his design and not much else.

    2. Lord-Dreamerz


      I always saw Sonic as both cool and cute, and is same opinion with most people I know. If you remove either aspect from him it throws off the balance and it isn't the best version of Sonic anymore.

  13. Part of me almost wishes Ryan Renolds had gotten the part for Tom instead so he'd be less boring. That and for the reactions that people would have.

    1. Jango


      Detective Pikachu 2

    2. AdventChild


      Tom feels like an generic nonentity and lacks presence.

      Better if the movie was fully animated and that we get Tails instead.

  14. Well, that's Ben's other current role and the way Sonic is acting in this trailer is pretty darn similar to Dewey in that show, so...I guess he figured he'd stil to what he knows? It kinda works. In a weird sorta way. Anyways, his look? His arms are STILL the wrong goddamn color and I'm going to forever be bothered by it. His eyes keep swtching from seeming kinda odd to being kinda cute. Overall, though, it's way better than before. I'm glad for the improvements, but not excited for the movie. Just the better reception it'll get. I'll watch it when the digital version comes out unless I end up going to the theaters on a movie date again.
