  1. No Sonic ship will ever become canon. Ever. Not a single one. No matter how hard you beg and plead, it'll never happen. They'll make winks and nudges at Sonamy fans and that's all we'll get forever and that's probably for the best. THAT SAID, my favorite ships are aged-up Sontails, Sonadow, and Blaze/Amy. Those are the best possible Sonic ships, don't even @ me. Shipping is good and pure and Sonic boys are better off being gay because it's more cute that way and literally the only reason anyone ships anything is cuz it's cute.
  2. Comic packs have really much less to do with promoting the comic than providing value and an incentive to purchase. "Oh, if I buy these action figures, then my kid gets toys AND a comic book!" TOMY could give a shit about Archie, they just wanna sell more toys.
  3. Sony is absolutely going to get a chunk of marketing push from the Sonic movie and has likely crafted a deal with SoJ that gets them a favorable profit off of book adaptations, toys, licensed apparel, and other licensed goods. That first thing is key - Sony/SoJ may not have been able to come to an agreement with regard to how the comics interacted with such a licensing arrangement and the Archie relationship may have been caught in the crossfire. There's again the persistent worry that this new agreement, if one exists, covers issues up to a certain stopping point. We're still not clear on this. If this is movie related, it may well be that Archie has until x date until Sony's licensing arrangements put them out of a license. This relies on several unanswered questions. What exactly is the nature of the SEGA/Sony relationship, will Sony have control of licensors with regard to the movie, will Tomy and Archie (among other known licensors) be brought back to produce comic adaptations and toys based on the film, how much money does Sony make off licensed product, how much money would Archie have to give Sony for a movie comic, etc. All of these wheels are in motion. With the movie having a director announced and a prominent placement in the licensing catalog, it's clear the thing is coming closer to fruition and the final paperwork would be underway. Obviously these discussions would have happened in a preliminary manner before but if things are in gear then now would be when pens touch paper. If the consensus is "something is happening with the license," then we need to consider all avenues, not just malaise or contempt. The "SoJ is unhappy with Sonic Boom and is taking revenge" theory is lacking a lot of substance for me. For one, Sonic's "home" is in Los Angeles right now. Iizuka's in LA, Aaron and the rest of the marketing team are in LA, the "head of the Sonic brand" they hired a few months ago is in LA. Sonic is SoA's baby right now and Sammy knows that. For another, Rise of Lyric happened in 2015. The toys and cartoon are doing okay, granted we don't know how Fire and Ice is doing, and the show's getting a dub in Japan. It's unlikely SoJ would, a year later, suddenly enact petty revenge on SoA, certainly considering Sonic Runners was on SoJ and did not do very well at all. The movie is a far more likely suspect as far as what would be mucking with these license agreements and we should keep our eyes on evolving license arrangements with Archie, TOMY, and other manufacturers.
  4. They're just good good boys y'all. They're exceptionally good boys. Such good boys.
  5. So, gonna throw a bone out there. I think the rumors may have been right regarding SEGA Japan throwing a hissy-fit over licensing. I feel like fan reaction may have actually saved us here. I think SoA wasn't prepared for the fan outcry and had to play ball with Archie to save the comics. The resolution is these books being delayed rather than outright cancelled. People love these comics and continue to show up for them, and ideally if we keep doing this we'll keep them around. The other thing I've been thinking lately is, well, how much of this licensing mess is just SoJ? How much of it has to do with future developments - like the movie?
  6. Just bumping this so folks can talk about the wonderful Season 2.
  7. Tyson did follow up to confirm it's not simply a matter of Archie *forgetting* to renew the license. We'll see what's up soon, I suppose.
  8. I'm really happy about the Freedom Fighter arcs but to tell you the truth I'm really curious as to what Blaze and Silver are up to. We haven't seen Blaze in, what, 40 issues?? And her status with regard to what she remembers from the old world and what she doesn't really hasn't been settled yet. You'd think with all this pirate business she'd show up somewhere... I'm hoping next arc is a follow-up to Silver Age. It was a really interesting and unique plot line that has just been totally ignored since.
  9. Frick if that CD is even half as good as the Kirby Cafe compilation... wow I hope someone rips that.
  10. Sonic 2 HD's Hidden Palace is technically available on console, provided you have an Apple TV (4th gen) and consider that at least mostly a console. ...hey, don't snipe me, the tvOS releases of Sonic 1 and 2 are fucking perfect and have 1080p and controller support and it's not my fault you don't have an Apple TV.
  11. It's a Coldsteel the Hedgehog joke. Aaron, ISTG.
  12. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Yacker in the Lost World arc. We'll see.
  13. Literally me i can't say a word about this game that y'all haven't already said except, yeah, if you want to put a hit on someone and hire me to be your hitwoman in exchange for Mania Hydrocity I'd be down
  14. It got lost in the Sonic Mania shuffle, but HERE'S your Level Pack, folks!! The Tornado and Sonic's car from All-Stars Racing!
