    So the PS2 emulation in PS4 is only for buying games from PS4. Apparently Sony loves making us pay for the games more than once. I mean, PS3 game? Have to pay for it again in PS Now. PS2 game? Didn't worked on either PS3 and PS4 even if systems games aere in store. PS1? Well, they worked on both PS2 and PS3 but I'm sure that when they are brought to the PS4 we have to pay for them again.
    This is why one company having an absolute dominancy is always a bad thing. When company is in that situation, it thinks that it doesn't need to do the good decisions that it's competitors do. I mean, PS4 is the only console without any kind of backwards compatibility.

    So, I had this idea for a two-paged Sonic comic last night before I got to sleep (actually, I couldn't stop thinking about it so it was hard getting to sleep), and I'm thinking over it this morning.
    It'd help me practice how to draw the characters... but there'd be violence and a character death... so I don't know.

    Seeing the 4th anniversary for Generations topic reminded me of just how much potential Sega pissed away in the wind with the game. A more fleshed out story would have been fitting for once and this game was begging for DLC.

    Here I'm going to spend a few minutes talking through one of the theories I have regarding Sonic. I'm a huge fan of finding potential ways to fix gaping plotholes or make things less ambiguous and do it with Sonic whenever I can. It's pretty fun!
    The thing I'm going to talk about today is about when Sonic CD took place in Sonic's timeline and how Sonic 4 can be used to pretty much solve the entire problem.
    Sonic CD up until recent years has been subject to a lot of debate about when it took place in Sonic's timeline. There were people who argue it being before Sonic 2, and others who argue it being after Sonic 2. When you look at what SEGA has given us over the last 25 years though, t's actually really simple to build a solid theory and pinpoint its location thanks to a recent game called Sonic the Hedgehog 4.
    What makes Sonic 4 so special? The intro to Episode Metal shows us that Metal Sonic was left behind on little planet after being defeated by Sonic in Sonic CD. This means that any game fitting into the period of time between CD and 4 can't have Metal Sonic in it because during that period he's stuck in Stardust Speedway 3 unable to function.
    This was only realised in 2012 though. Before that, Metal Sonic was featured in a variety of classic era games released after Sonic CD. The games Metal Sonic appeared in prior to Sonic Adventure aside from Sonic CD are Knuckles' Chaotix, Sonic Drift 2, Sonic the Fighters, Sonic R and Sonic Triple Trouble. The retcon introduced in Sonic 4 doesn't mean that this theory is canned though: We just need to explain some things and they'll fit in together just like that.
    To do this, I need to get rid of the main problem. This problem is how Amy Rose can be in these games if they take place before Metal Sonic was defeated in Sonic CD. Honestly, this is only a problem in Drift, Fighters and R (I think she only appears in some Sound Test in Chaotix) and you could just say she was following Sonic before Sonic CD - It's not specifically stated to be her first time in that game anyway, just that some tarot cards led her there.
    But anyway, the main point I want to make now that Amy's out of the way is that Knuckles showing up in a game automatically means that game takes place after S3K - since if Knuckles already knew who Sonic and Eggman were beforehand he probably wouldn't have been tricked so easily in 3K. Before 4 came around, you could argue that Sonic CD came before S3K and games like Knuckles Chaotix came after it because Metal Sonic wasn't shown to be out of action after CD. However, since 4 added that fact into Metal Sonic's story, you can't make this argument anymore: Games like Knuckles Chaotix must take place before Sonic CD.
    Therefore, we can say Sonic CD takes place not only after S3K, but the majority of the Classic Sonic era and is actually one of the last games (not counting Gens) in the timeline featuring Classic Sonic, if not the last.
    Also, since Little Planet only shows up once a year, we know that Sonic CD <-> Sonic 4 is at least a year's gap.
    Oh, and I know 4 Episode 1's plot mentions taking place shortly after the events of S3K and that Sonic departed from Tails and Knuckles going off to explore new territories. Maybe that's what he was doing when he stopped by to see little planet in CD?
    That's all for now, but I've got a load more of these types of theories if anyone's interested.

    Just few days ago I said that one of the Sonic games next year will have microtransactions. And just after that SEGA decided to rip us off by making microtransactions much more mandatory in Runners. Well, I don't longer assume that microtransactions will be in the future games, I'm sure about it.

    As a Sonic fan, I really feel offended by SEGA's giant middle finger today. And this comes from a guy who actually defended Sonic Boom RoL when it came out. For me this is probably the worst day in Sonic's history. But hey, at least Thigolf made me smile a bit. Never forget the almighty BrrroooOOOM!

    Just read someone's fanfiction that told the reason behind why Sonic wears sports tape (Boom universe obviously).
    Apparently, he used to get bullied because of his speed and so he cut his arms and legs. So, he decided to hide the cuts with sports tape.
    As soon as I read that, I gave up and closed the tab.
