  1. Just wanna say I don't think you did anything wrong by asking that question, its perfectly fine to ask in almost any situation!
  2. I don't think Sega is that smart...they clearly are blasts to the past!
  3. I hope the cutscene where tails dies in forces gets leaked soon so everybody can stop talking about his character development/role in the story...

      Man c,mon. This isn't for real is it?

      Sure, since every other character from the modern games is in this, maybe Elise can show up and smooch him back to life.

    4. Alienrun


      The funny thing is I didn't even think of how Tails comes back to life when he dies in Sonic 2/3 when I wrote this status update...



  4. There was a lot of crap I was saying that you ignored. You made the bold claim that Eggman doesn't want to kill sonic, and I said that was BS. Its not realistic to randomly turn off your instinctual desire to kill your arch nemesis and his friends. (A problem I have with the newer writing) If Eggman wants to "take over the world" or whatever he'll do what he can to get that, which includes killing sonic. ...That, however, DOESN'T mean that he will only kill sonic if he's actively trying to physically take over the world. He tries to take over the world over and over and over again...I think that would make someone more harsh towards their victim, not sympathetic! I'm honestly surprised you haven't brought up the ending of Sonic X, because that is actually a good example that favors your claim...which is why I don't think its that unrealistic to say that Sega didn't have that in mind when they made the character...
  5. Oh my...Eggman isn't trying to kill Sonic here don't you worry! He's just wants sonic out of his way! Forget that he's holding Amy hostage or that he thinks that he killed sonic...that doesn't mean anything! In fact let's just pretend that didn't happen Also regarding Sonic 3...if Eggman hits you and you have no rings you die, that settles it. You can't tell me "its an accident" because that is the point in putting death in a video game, I'm not sure how you can remember running away from a battle ship throwing bombs at you and not think for a second that Eggman isn't trying to kill you! For crying out loud...wanting to kill someone doesn't automatically make you some physcotic maniac! That's not what I'm saying!
  6. Look man, you might not have sonic 3 ingrained into your memory like I do but...when you fight the first boss in that game and he shoots fire at you...he's trying to freaking kill you (and tails since he's with you)! I don't see why it would make any difference whether its in the the heat of battle or not...he's the bad guy, that's what bad guys do! You could argue all you want that Eggman is only doing it to make ends meet, but to say he wouldn't kill anyone sounds much more fanficy to me. Did we all forget how much controversy THIS caused... (Plus there's that mincemeat moment...) Saying Eggman doesn't want to kill Tails or Sonic is like saying Bowser doesn't want to kill Mario or Luigi...its poposterous!
  7. Here's my source I was talking about... (Skip to 2:21 if you wanna get to the point) A game made by sega, you succeed its day and you both look at the sunset, you fail and you by yourself see your lover dead. This is very basic symbolism, its not a matter of "looking too much into it". Sometimes artists put subtle things like that in games that so happen to tie into the story. There's a handheld kirby game that ends similarly...it doesn't spell it out for you like if your a baby, but if you put 2 and 2 together you can see you get screwed over if you get the bad ending. (hence why its a bad ending...) Tails is kidnapped, Eggman's the bad guy...you don't get the fight the "true final boss" if you fail, this is the 3rd game in the series not counting Erazor...its not that complicated! Put an ending like this in any other game and people would go "welp he's dead!" What makes sonic so f**king different? (Also the CD thing would take way too long for me to explain so I won't bother...)
  8. The end of Knux's Chaotix should be enough to suffice that thought... It's obvious that Tails died there, Sega made other games at the time where the "bad ending" would be the main hero looking off in the distance at night with the person they failed to save now dead and seeing them in the stars. (Plus Sonic CD's ending implies something similar, so its not a one time only thing) I can provide a source if you want if you don't belive me, but I think back then Sega was more loose with story anyways... Think of it this way, Eggman tries to kill sonic all the time, so what makes tails any different? Yes he plays the stereotypical "villian who only knows the main characters name" thing. But tails has proven to be just as much of a threat as Sonic, there's no reason he'd ignore him if he got in his way. As far as I'm concerned he wants all of sonic's friends dead...its just sonic's always the main dude to stop him...
  9. Are you saying Eggman wouldn't kill Tails if he had the chance?
  10. Sonic's Boom persona seems to have been designed around Roger in general, ESPECIALLY in the show! So that's why people are more happy there... ...but Sonic in general? People are gonna have there complaints, especially if there used to be better options in the past...
  11. I honestly don't see why you couldn't be a fan of both? I really don't like the direction of Unleashed, I feel its very "un-sonic" like. But that doesn't mean I think its a bad game, for all its faults it gets stuff right, really right sometimes. I mean...this seems controdictory like...I don't think there exists many people who will tell you that Sonic 4 has an amazing story or anything. The reality is that Sonic 4 isn't made for anyone in mind, the only way you'd like it is if you didn't care about its flaws entirely (low standards) or if you actively TRIED to like it...for whatever reason... I'm sorry if I missed it cause I just skimmed a lot of what you said but...what was the point of this topic again? Every fandom has fans saying dumb stuff sometimes, just ignore it and move on.
  12. You just lost all credibility with that sentence. If you think the differences between Brawl and Melee were only "slight" then you have no idea what you are talking about! The people who complained about that crap are the people who actually sat down and played melee for more than 60 hours... If you don't care about the physics, then you don't care about the game, because the physics ARE THE GAME! Thinking otherwise is just a sign of lower standards, if it doesn't bother you that's one thing, but saying it doesn't matter is entirely different. ... When you have to resort to saying "Its not that bad", thats why people don't take your opinion seriously. That mindset is how mediocre games get a pass, nobody wants to play mediocre games in their right mind...especiallly if its tied to a franchise that used to be great one of the best in existence!

  15. So I can't be the only one who noticed this but (mania spoilers ahead...)


    zone from Sonic 1

    zones from Sonic 2 and CD respectively

    3 zones from Sonic 3

    4 zones from Sonic Mania

    With this info in mind you could argue (mainly from Izukia's perspective) that Mania has more new content that old lol :P

    You guys think this is intentional or just a coincedence?

      I predicted this way before mania was released nobody paid attention lmao.

      I think it was intentional.

    2. Sean


      Actually there's only 1 zone from Sonic 3 and K zones from Sonic & Knuckles

      @Sean Obviously I meant Sonic 3 as a whole. (and of course they went out of there way to include at least 1 zone from sonic 3 by itself...)

    6. Sean


      1 + K doesn't equal 3 though

    7. Pelvic WOO! engine

      Pelvic WOO! engine

      Stop. Too much math!

    8. Zaysho
    9. Alienrun


      Well if you put it that way...

      3 as a whole still has 3 zones, that's indesputable.

      The problem comes when questioning how many zones K has?

      Since K is not a number its value isn't as well defined like 1, 2, and CD is (CD equals 2 since its on the same spectrum as 2 as there are 2 games with 2 zones + CD is 2 letters...) thus meaning K could equate to a number of different values when compared to 3. 

      We do know that K must come after 3, hence why its called Sonic 3&K and not K&3 or KKK.

      However the zones in Mania do not have a set order, as half of K actually takes place before 3 and the second half after 3. Thus K is not limited to simply being > 3 in this context. (Though that further brings into question how you determined how 1 + K < 3!) Likewise its possible that since 3&K are almost always coexist with each other that K could refer to 3's levels and 3 could refer to K AND 3's levels. (Since 3 comes before K you could argue that it has priority over K since one is more known than the other.)

      To put it more simply K is not a value but rather a function that requires 3 to properly have any meaning...

      So with all that being said its entirely possible that 3 (or 1) plus K equals 3...possible even more if you want to turn this around and say that that's the problem...Mania also has an extra act dedicated to the personification of K itself, thus further justifing that K > 1 or that K = 2

      You can also factor in that the Mania Genesis Kart doesn't fit on an actual Genesis, but does fit on a 32X, which has K Chaotix on it, thus multiplying the result by 32...which also so happens to the number of blue sphere levels in Mania...which also happen to take inspiration from K Chaotix for the Special Stages...which in turn was taken from CD, another "function" like K

      TL;DR 3K are inseperable and are the same, 3 is the value and K is the function, but both are the same...

      Alternate TL;DR 1 + K = 3 :P

    11. Sean


      K is K, not 2

    12. Alienrun


      K then...

      How bout we say 3K has 3K zones? Hmm? :/

  16. You guys think this game has good taste in sonic games? >Link<


  17. Fair enough, I was being vague with my responces so I'll cut it short, one thing that suck out though... If your super sonic of course your going to out run the plane, that's common sense! I don't know how anyone could not think that would happen. Should the plane also glow yellow and move faster to account for your additional speed? Would that make a lot of sense?
  18. So I was about to make a topic asking for assitance for resetting my mania save, then it turned out it randomly reset after fidgeting with disabling auto-steam-cloud updates. (Normally a new save won't be created, the game will just say the save is corrupted and won't let you save anything!)

    If anyone wants a fresh save and doesn't feel like going through all the trouble I did to secure it, I can send it to you! ;)

  19. Just because a game doesn't hold your hand doesn't make it "poor design"! :/
  20. The PC version is the best because its the PC version and you can use a keyboard!
  21. So used to seeing spoilers for Mania I pratically forgot its a game I can ACTUALLY PLAY!

    ...oh boy I'm in for a treat! :D

  22. To anyone who thinks the Sonic fanbase is the only one with a "split" problem, think again...


    1. Alienrun


      Ultimate tenkaichi was pretty much DBZ's 06, people started to much more negative about upcoming games until Xenoverse set things straight...

      Now DBZ fighter Z is finally addressing the more hardcore Budokai fans (alongside bringing in new MvC people) and of course a loud minority complains its not a freaking DBZ simulator instead of an actual fighting game...

      Not to surprising or anything, just felt like sharing this! :/

    2. DiamondX


      I mean, you can be a fan of both XV and FighterZ.

      I am.

    3. Alienrun


      I'm sure most people are, I think some people aren't though and a lot of people don't get that...

      Its not as bad as sonic by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought it was still worth bringing up.

    4. StriCNYN3


      Whats weird though is that the Xenoverse side is acting like their type of games aren't still being made... like didn't Xenoverse 2 just get an update on top of the game just coming out?

    5. DiamondX


      The last XV2 update was 2 months ago and the game released in October last year.

    6. StriCNYN3


      Yea, it's relatively recent. While I do like playing Xenoverse 2 with my lil bros from time to time, DBFZ is more up my alley, but I just live and let live, you know? I don't know why others find it hard to do that.

    7. Milo


      Well, yeah. No fandom is free from split opinions. Even Mario fans get into odds with each other over preferring the sandbox 3D Marios (64, Sunshine) and the linear 3D Marios (Galaxy 1/2, 3D Land/3D World). There's also a lot of contention on whether SMB3 or SMW in particular is the best (2D) Mario title. 

      It's just that the Sonic series has taken so many differnet directions and questionable design decisions that it's one of the more pronounced examples of a broken fanbase.

  23. Just told some random kid on twitch that I'd buy him sonic mania...

    ...I'm wondering if I should go through with it! :/

    1. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Well if you really want to, you might as well.

      If you don't want to, just go and tell him as such as soon as possible, just so he doesn't get his hopes up and dragged on for too long.

  24. You think that's bad? I once bumped into someone who thought Sonic was flat out sold to Nintendo (due to the exclusivity deal) and legit thought that LW was a sign that not even nintendo could do sonic right in 3D and thus desided to redo sonic via Sonic Boom... ...thankfully I was there (twitch chat, this was the streamer btw) to say that that was complete BS!
  25. That weird "hmmm" sound that the girl is constantly making is starting to worry me! :/

    1. Alienrun


      btw I changed my mind about the chat...its the best thing I've ever seen! :o
