  1. Weston Super Sonic 2017

    Since this is Sonic-related, it would better fit in Green Hill Zone, so it's been moved.
  2. Anyone else experience a phenomenon where you're working on a really big project and it's so big that you're discouraged from working on it because there's so much that will do, despite the fact that there are clear measurable steps that can be taken to make more progress, just because of the enormity of getting it all done?

    1. Shiguy


      Well, I did experianced this on occasions in multiple art class projects, mind you still Got an "A" overall but I'll never forget that experiance.


      This was messy af and I hated it. (did a surpisingly nice piece but man, coloring with these just sucks)

    2. TailsTellsTales


      Yes when I attempted to make a realistic paper phone in 2007. Took 3 weeks to make. Mostly you have to come up with ways to overcome it and envision the finished project.

      When this happens I sometimes have a redbull, coffee or other form of caffeine, and then my mind goes into this state where I can clearly see and break a project down into it's smallest parts to attack it one piece at a time. This is how I did some of my bigger projects in the past before I started working and had more free time. These days though there's only but so much caffeine I take in per day, and most of it at work.

      All the damn time.

      High school was like that 95% of the time. TAFE felt like that too.

  3. [FanGame] New Fangame Sonic Super Charged

    The visuals look great, the meter concept has potential, and even the plotline sounds a bit interesting. I'd say you're on the right track!
  4. Man, it would be so cool if I could get excited for Justice League, but thanks to BvS, it's just not gonna happen. Hard to get interested in a sequel to a movie I seriously dislike.

    1. Mightyray


      Pretty much. It just looks like a mess. At this rate I'd rather that april fools joke about the Plastic Man vs Elongated Man movie.

      -Me, every time ANY movie from the DC cinematic universe is announced.

      Though I heard Wonder Woman was good.

  5. The story of Sonic - as originally perceived

    Trying to figure out the deal with the Chaos Emeralds, Super Emeralds, etc. in Sonic 3 & Knuckles is guaranteed to make your brain explode. Some have concluded there are two sets of Chaos Emeralds, one on Angel Island and one not, and the Angel Island set might be the same thing as the Super Emeralds, but others think the Super Emeralds are just a powered-up version of the Chaos Emeralds and there are only ever 7, because there being multiple sets of Chaos Emeralds is never acknowledged in any other game, nor are the Super Emeralds. I guess we have to conclude there are two sets of Chaos Emeralds in Sonic 3? Maybe? Again, it's never acknowledged anywhere that there are two sets of emeralds, so...make up your own headcanon to explain the discrepancy? Or just ignore it... Easily my least favorite part of the Sonic 3 & Knuckles story because it's so confusing. But, I guess I have to face up to the fact that Sonic games aren't actually the type of games that desperately need to make sense in every way. A lot of story elements aren't in cutscenes, such as Sonic and Tails meeting, except for a brief and non-elaborate flashback in Sonic Adventure. Nack the Weasel is in the manual elsewhere, yes. There's a lot of stuff that doesn't make a ton of sense, not to mention notable discrepancies between Japanese and Western manuals, and I guess you just have to roll with it. In general, trying too hard will give you a headache. The best way to handle Sonic "lore" is to just appreciate the various scattered bits without trying to dissect them deeply, or to connect the pieces with your own headcanons. The Sonic games don't really have much the most consistent continuity, and sometimes they just don't cover certain things at all even if you would think it would make sense. Sometimes, that's a good thing (pleasing minimalism); sometimes, that's annoying (makes the story/universe feel like it has "gaps"). But, again, you just have to roll with it at the end of the day.
  6. The Lara-Su Chronicles and Ken Penders topic - READ PAGE 164, POST 4096

    Has it ever occurred to him that sometimes introducing (a) new character(s) makes a story work better, or be easier to write? In fact, absolutely prohibiting oneself from ever introducing any characters would likely make one's job harder rather than easier.
  7. Sonic Forces: Infinite Unmasked (SPOILERS/Speculation)

    "He was not always evil, but unlike Chaos, Infinite was not born by mutation, he’s animal character like Sonic’s team. The reason why he becomes powerful and why he becomes evil… you’ll get your answer in Shadow’s free DLC." Source: http://sonicunited.org/2017/10/05/sonic-forces-interview-from-the-latest-famitsu-issue-who-is-infinite/ He's been very clearly and explicitly confirmed to NOT be like Chaos, NOT be a chao (since he's an animal character), and NOT be a mutant.
  8. Sonic Forces OST - Aqua Road

    It's pretty good, but I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to it. It's decent but doesn't excite me.
  9. Sonic Forces: Infinite Unmasked (SPOILERS/Speculation)

    The orange canine is generic-looking enough that I think the resemblance could easily be a coincidence. Also, no Sega characters have the color of the rest of their body on the bridge of their nose, do they? That could indicate it was just a background character by ABT rather than a Sega-designed character. Still an interesting theory, though.
  10. I'm glad it's extremely unlikely that Infinite is an established character, because that would be dumb.

    1. ShroomZed


      Even SEGA wouldn't be that crazy

    2. Diogenes


      watch him be alternate dimension future tails

    3. Lord-Dreamerz


      And him being a completely new character is boring. And won't have any point when he takes off his mask near the end to reveal who he is as if that'll mean anything to us.

  11. Sonic Forces: Moment Of Truth Digital Comic

    Hey, that was pretty good. The rookie's "I'm a failure" thing was a bit overdone, sure, but wasn't an inherently bad idea, especially since it's relatable. I'm very happy the Chaotix were in, even if I feel they probably could've "shone" a little bit more. They're some of my favorite characters. Overall, a good if simple comic. Best of all, I had forgotten how much I liked the concept of a citizen-powered resistance in Sonic, brings me back to SatAM in a great way.
  12. Sonic Mania Ring Attacks

    Cool idea! While this is a minor issue, I'm moving this to Upcoming Sonic Games because Green Hill Zone is designated as being for games "over a year post-release".
  13. Please convince me that "Sonic World" is great, because I don't think it is!

    Not gonna lie, this completely unprompted and unnecessary quest for some kind of strange "validation" from other people for such strange reasons doesn't make sense to me. But if you really need validation that you're a Sonic fan, here goes: You like Sonic. You're a Sonic fan. The end. If it helps, I still haven't played a lot of the 3D games, haven't finished a lot of the games, and when I was young I played fan games more than the official ones because they were easier and plentiful.
  14. Something happening tomorrow

    Well, there's already been one mobile tie-in. Another one rather than actual Forces news would be a bit disappointing, imo.
  15. Sonic Forces Impressions

    Even as someone not exactly pumped for Forces, reading some positive impressions is still nice, actually. Gives me some much-needed hope for the game.
