  1. The problem with Shadow is that the comic exaggerates his character flaws while simultaneously downplaying his redeeming qualities to the point of nonexistence. Before, Shadow tended to keep people other than his teammates at arm's length. In IDW he goes straight past taciturn and acts downright hostile, even giving Rouge the cold shoulder more often than not. While he was once a pragmatic and somewhat haughty, which sometimes caused conflicts, he was still fundamentally motivated by duty and altruism. Here his ego is in full control and he's already caused at least two disasters by refusing to listen to others and putting his pride before common sense. Basically, SEGA gave up on writing Shadow as likable or nuanced character, embraced the strawman "Ow the Edge" meme version of him, and are mandating that the comic's writers to do the same.
  2. I'm choosing to believe that Shadow was looking for a robot trader to get parts for Omega on his own and is simply uninterested in whatever Rouge's plan is since he's clearly not needed for it. That's a valid interpretation of his behavior here, right? (Damnit SEGA! I'm trying to be charitable here but you're making it really hard for me to keep liking some of my favorite characters.)
  3. ATTENTION: We regret to inform you that, due to an incident involving an experimental time travel device, one or more of your loved ones may have accidentally been paradoxed out of existence. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and wish to reassure you that you will not notice their absence since, technically speaking, they never existed in the first place.

Meanwhile Bill Barr has suggested charging protesters with sedition (i.e. Inciting rebellion against the United States). The Trump Administration has officially entered super-villain territory.
  5. Anyone got a Zamazenta they're willing to lend me? I just need it to finish my Pokedex, I'll give it right back.

      DM me! I got plenty!

      In fact, you can keep one, I don't mind!

    Me: "I'm eating lukewarm takeout from fucking Panda Express."

  7. When I first read Issue 30 I was actually pleased with Shadow's portrayal because I assumed he had realized Eggman just took off with Omega. You know, his FRIEND and TEAMMATE? Then I come to catch up on the thread and am reminded that characterization in this comic is still beholden to the edicts of SEGA's ass and we're all just supposed to forget Team Dark was ever a thing.
  8. I swear, if Crown Tundra doesn't include Sordward's hair as a customization option...

  9. Apparently, if you're a white suburban family in a red state during COVID, the Republican Party just sends you an absentee ballot application unprompted.

    The disingenuous jackasses.

      It’s always been projection. Claim fraud because you’re guilty of it.

  10. It honestly baffles me how SEGA can be so hypersensitive to some criticisms yet totally deaf to others. Like, once '06 came out and people started bitching about about multiple characters, plots, and 3D gameplay they turned around and made the very next game to enter production Sonic only, light on plot, and a 2D/3D hybrid with completely different gameplay. Yet, after 19 years of trying to remind them that Knuckles is supposed to be the guardian of the Master Emerald and a decade of expressing displeasure with Shadow the Dickhead we still haven't seen any concerted effort to correct course.
  11. A hobby of mine that I've alluded to in the status updates but haven't actually talked much about is creating 3D models and animations. I thought I'd make a thread to show some of my work on the off-chance that anybody out there actually cares. I do most of my work in Blender: a free, open-source modeling and animation program which, in my experience, can rival most paid alternatives in terms of functionality. Of course, you're probably here to see models, not listen to me plug Blender. This one is still a work in progress, so it's a bit, "rougher than the rest of 'em":
  12. The unenlightened masses, they cannot make the judgement call.

    Give up free will forever, their voices won't be heard at all.

    Display obedience, while never stepping out of line, and blindly swear allegiance. Let your country control your mind!

    (Let your country control your soul!)

     

    Live in ignorance and purchase your happiness!

     When blood and sweat is the real cost, thinking ceases the truth is lost!

     Don't you worry you'll be told exactly what to do!

     I give my people the lies they need: the "righteous" will succeeded!

     

    The fires will burn in their defeat!

    The human heart is obsolete!

    Breaking down the fabric of society!

    Collective consciousness controlled, as you will see!

     

    Let your country control your soul!

    Let your country control your soul!

    Let your country control your soul!

    LET YOUR COUNTRY CONTROL YOUR SOUL!

  13. I love how dynamic the artwork from Sonic Channel's 2019 calendar is.

    Makes me wish the games still had a sense of style (or at least knew how to work a fucking camera).
