    ImPantsAtThis got a reaction from MightyRay in The General 'Murican Politics Thread   
    Here's an interesting article on the tactical ineptitude of the Clinton campaign:
    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/michigan-hillary-clinton-trump-232547
    It only describes the loss of MI, but you can guess that at least WI was a similar situation -- it explains quite well (in terms of ground game) how the Democrats lost in the rust belt. A few choice excerpts:

    Just saw this week's episode. Have to say it's one of my faves so far -- very funny writing! Incidentally, I did notice the CWC resemblance, but I doubt the writers know/care who he is; the more likely scenario is that whoever did the fanbase research came across him (and others) which influenced their description of the underside of the fandom. Hoping for more eps this great!

    ImPantsAtThis got a reaction from C.J in Any little things you'd like to see change in the Sonic series?   
    I'd like the games to start getting their own vocal themes again. They really help capture the spirit and tone of the game, and they're generally good music regardless. With a lot of Sonic games, even if you don't like the writing, you can usually listen to the vocal theme and get an idea of what they were going for, and that's something I can appreciate.

    Those schmucks at Fanfiction.net said my Sonic x Gravity Falls fanfic was "highly improbable" and "never ever gonna happen." And they all laughed at me. WELL WHO'S LAUGHING NOW JAREDROCKS328 HA

    ImPantsAtThis got a reaction from Kaotic Kanine in Sonic Unleashed Vs. Sonic Unwiished; Which version do you prefer?   
    Yeah no. The version that takes like no time to beat? The version with no plot? The version without the NPCs and sidequests? I'd rather have all the good content as well as the middling content like the Werehog, rather than a barebones, if polished, experience with little more than the day stages.

    ImPantsAtThis got a reaction from FFWF in UK To vote on Staying in the EU "Bonjour/Auf Wiedersehen! delete as appropriate"   
    What worries me is the potential for current events to colour the debate around the issue. A decision on the EU is about immigration, true, but more important aspects of the topic are how the decision will affect the UK's relationship with international businesses in London and our trade with EU member states, as well as diminishing/maintaining our usefulness in the eyes of the US (along with other issues, like autonomy from the European Courts and such).
    Unfortunately, I have a feeling that the refugee crisis will do nothing but shore up the anti-immigration crowd to blame everything on the EU "forcing us to take in refugees who are living off benefits over here"*, blinding people to the more significant impacts the vote will have.
    *That's obviously not a real quote, but I guarantee someone will try to spin the whole thing that way.

    http://sonicthehedgehog.tumblr.com/post/140041253836/this-week-for-fanartfriday-we-cover-drawing Well, today they are drawing Moder Sonic. Let me make an observation: last week their music was classic Rooftop Run, and today it was modern mix. 
    Also there are a lot of meetings there      (#we'd post more hashtags but we're being stolen for a meeting!), and it's not the first time he mentions them. So there are things going on behind the scenes, and there are hapening more often.

    ImPantsAtThis reacted to Dantemustdie00 in Does Gerald Robotnik deserve to be pardoned for his crimes?   
    Maybe when he was sane yes, but it seems he went batshit crazy after his arrest and I assume hearing about Maria's death. If he got out in his current state he would've been far more dangerous than his great grandson would be as I would imagine him committing mass genocide everywhere.
    And no offense to him, I get he was trying to find a cure, but he did made a deal with a extremely hostile alien race and created not one but two bio-weapons.

    Eggmanland, Sonic Unleashed (2008):
    (spoilered for size)
    This is what Eggman was making during the game. Looks pretty metal and belonging to him in my eyes. Also, keep in mind this is from Unleashed, the game where Eggman split the earth into fragments (that fits F everything, doesn't it?) and released an evil god  (not careful or conscious, really) from its core to terrorise the planet. I don't think the distinction that you think is there is there.
    The only thing that's changed is that he has a voice as Eggman.

    translation: It has been a long time since I have had a meal with Iizuka and Oshima at the Ginza in Tokyo (funfact, ginza is a shopping area in toyko). Since leaving the hotels, we first went to the Magic Bar, played Trump and I drew Sonic. The Magic Bar was plenty fun!

    I'm guessing this is a joke. It is, right? If so, you might want to make it a little more obvious. If not, well...

    ImPantsAtThis reacted to Badnik Mechanic in Sonic the Hedgehog: 25 Year Anniversary Panel "Livestream link in OP"   
    It's been revealed that Sega will be hosting a Sonic 25th Anniversary panel at SXSW (This stands for something with an S in it!) at Austin Texas in March.
    Now, this one is... quite special. Here is who is on the panel.
    Aaron Webber Austin Keys (Director of Product Development) Mike Pollock Roger Craig Smith Takashi Iizuka Yuji Naka Nope that is not a mistake, that is really the panel!
    Now this is quite a big deal, not only are the voice actors going to be there, but both Iizuka and Naka will be there as well, the last time this happened in the west was at Sonic Boom 2011. 
    What are they going to be talking about?
    Date: Saturday March 19th 
    Venue: Austin Convention Centre
    Time: 3:30pm - 4:15pm
    LiveStream: https://www.twitch.tv/event/sxswgaming
    Website Link: http://schedule.sxsw.com/2016/events/event_PP92695
    Why am I really interested in this? Well... the fact that Naka and Iizuka are both there for one thing is a very significant move by Sega, Iizuka doesn't usually come over to the west for events unless it's something really major, but... Naka also being there? That's quite rare. 
    Furthermore, the date of this convention is a few days before that March date which got teased by the social media outlets a few weeks back. So you never know.
    Is anyone going to go to this, if so can you make yourself known so you can be a hero to the rest of us and report back on what happens? 
    IMPORTANT NOTE:
    If you are thinking of going, there is a way to get into just this panel for free! Visit this link! http://guestpass.sxsw.com/
     
    Will they announce a new Sonic game at this event?:
    No, this has been mentioned by Arron Webber, there is not going to be a game announcement.

    Cross post for victory!
    I have a theory... 
    I think that because Naka has been brought on board, he's not just there for this one panel, it's not even an hour long, I think that there will be some other events going on that week, which would make sense for all the talent that they have to be not only in the same country but also the same city. 
    You know like how when they announced Boom everybody went to New York a day or two before hand. 
    I think this is what's happening with this. 
     
    It's the fact that both Naka and iizuka are there, for a non Sonic convention, I can't believe that they're bringing them all together in one spot for a 45min panel... which has not yet been advertised by Sega.
