  1. I started watching Yu-Gi-Oh for the first time a few days ago and I only wish I tried it sooner, I absolutely love it. BTW, I'm watching the 4Kids dub because I purposefully want to experience it the way American kids experienced it, and so far I'm enjoying that choice because the censorship is funny to me, not annoying.

    1. PublicEnemy1


      The Toei anime (AKA Season 0) is one of my top anime.

    2. Zaysho


      You should check out the pre-Duel Monsters era part of the manga if you want some mad whiplash after watching the 4Kids show.

      The main appeal of the 4Kids dub is that the localization team knew full well how ridiculous the premise was and peppered it with cheesy dialogue. Kaiba is just as melodramatic in the original manga and anime, but most of his snarky one-liners we all love come from the dub.

      "the shadow realm" is unironically one of my favorite bits of censorship in any show, because it really fits the show perfectly

  2. Overall, I liked the reboot era a lot. I liked that it brought Archie Sonic closer to the games and, while the lost of history is definitely bad in some ways, I'm glad that some of the weirder aspects of the series' past were gotten rid of, offering a more consistent and streamlined world. Broadly speaking, I like the new universe better than the old for these reasons. But yes, the loss of 20+ years of development is still problematic and does make things feel less "weighty" somehow, and I feel like they tried too hard to introduce a bunch of new characters to "make up" for that. I like the redesigns of characters and usually consider them improvements or equal, though I think Bunnie's robot parts were too oversimplified. I didn't read Worlds Unite, but on a conceptual level and from what I've heard, it seems pretty awful and is definitely a blight on the reboot era. I have mixed feelings about Knuckles' lore being simplified and made closer to Sega (though obviously I know they had no choice). For all its many oftentimes severe flaws, I still like a substantial part of the Archie echidna lore and characters. However, I simultaneously really like what they did with Knuckles' much more simplified life and I recognize that a lot of the previous lore was heavily flawed. In short, I am a big fan of the reboot overall, but it is unfortunate that so much was lost too.
  3. A fairly unpopular opinion I have is that I really like the classic stages of Sonic Generations, possibly even more than the modern stages. Yes, they're hugely different from the classic games, but they're still fun 2D platforming in their own right, and I actually find the overpowered spindash to be a blast. I really hope this isn't meant seriously. If this was the case, no one could ever give a majorly negative opinion on any video game because you'd have to be crazy to 100% a game you didn't like.
  4. Your art is incredibly good. I really love watercolors and you do an excellent job with them. The lineart is also great and I love that you make tributes to so many different games.
  5. I'm pretty sure that's an extremely uncommon opinion. I can see where it's coming from, not having it does make it more challenging to gain momentum and I can see the merits of that. I usually play Sonic 1 in its original form without the spin dash and I like it that way. But I most definitely like the spin dash in general and think it's a great boon to most games it's in.
  6. isn't it great when a youtube comment is like "let's be honest, you didn't search for this" but you actually did

    1. Ferno


      i just wanna be led into a fun random video and feel like i've found an old cozy abandoned vid comment section without "lol YT algorithm brought me here" comments drowning out the original older comments that may've been there

    2. CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      CrownSlayer’s Shadow

      To be honest, they’re right—90% of the time I didn’t search for it and only went down the rabbit hole after coming across it by chance.

      @Ferno Fair, but it's fun when the comments section is a combination of the really new comments and the extremely old ones.

  7. I have mixed feelings about this, because I think a lot of the criticism of the series is sadly deserved, but there's also a lot of it that isn't ("Sonic was never good" and such). So I don't really blame people for thinking the series is bad, but it is annoying when people act like it's altogether trash. At the end of the day, it's something that I guess we have to learn to live with since it's not going to go away any time soon.
  8. Early Dave Manak is solid. Most of the criticism of him seems to be based on his later work, which I haven't seen enough of to give a solid opinion on, personally. But it does make sense that his style, reminiscent of classic Western cartoons, would be more fitting for the series' early history.
  9. if sega insists on making classic sonic and modern sonic separate characters/universes, the dreamcast-ish era characters/universe should also be separate

    1. Cuz



      I'll allow it provided Shadow and Rouge (Silver?) become "Dreamcast" locked. lol

      Fans will riot in the streets. xD

    2. Wraith


      even if this is ironic, no

      Because everyone haven't gotten enough of two sonics as is

  10. Are you bored? If so, why not read this blog post I wrote about the grand total of 2 Superman video games I've played? https://superman.nfshost.com/blog/a-quick-look-at-two-superman-games/

  11. Just played Pokemon TCG Online for the first time. It's great fun so far, but it has a major flaw...the avatars and general aesthetics are horribly off-putting and don't fit Pokemon at all.

  12. I like her. Sure, we didn't get to see much of her, but I think that's not unusual for a mother character. She's an important influence on Sonic's life and therefore the rest of the story even if she didn't get much screen time. She has a nice design even if it's not exactly Sonic-y. And I have a soft spot for parent characters, especially adoptive ones. I absolutely hope she's explored more in the sequel, and will be disappointed if she isn't.
  13. Watching Batman Beyond and I just gotta wonder, why don't keyboards have space bars in the future?

  14. Wow. Yet another abomination. Penders never disappoints, and by that I mean, he always disappoints. I truly can't understand how he thinks New Lara-Su actually looks like a teenager, or how he can think that art style looks good. What's remarkable is that the Old Lara-Su drawing is terrible, but still miles better than the new version. On top of everything, it looks like he's using a photo for the floor, which I guess shouldn't be any surprise coming from him. One thing I will say, though. That Old Lara-Su is kind of a mood. Not a good mood. She looks tired. I'm tired. #relatable.
  15. Well, to be fair, Sally's beef with Sonic was not his actions as Mecha Sonic, but because she thought he had himself roboticized deliberately, mimicking the plan Sally had tried herself despite the fact that it worked out so poorly when she did it, and in a sense, the fact that she had already failed in the very same plan was all the more reason it should've been obvious it was a bad idea. But it is true that the other Freedom Fighters acted very ridiculous towards Sonic in the aftermath of Metal Madness. And in general, communication between writers in the early days was pretty lacking, so it's not surprising there was a lot of inconsistency.
  16. New Blaze wallpaper is 🔥

    1. Shadow Chaos Control

      Shadow Chaos Control

      It is indeed. I enjoyed the Shadow wallpaper for Oct. 

  17. Do you ever experience a phenomenon where you really like a TV show (one that is not currently on air and has no realistic chance of being revived), but you watch it extremely slowly and infrequently? That sometimes happens to me...maybe it's because I know how sad it will be when there are no "new" episodes left.

    1. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Really, that's me with pretty much everything, whether it be TV, video games or comics.

      I can't recall television examples, but on the video game side of things, I had that experience with Bug Fables, mostly because even though the creators more or less said that they're interested in a sequel, who knows how long that will be before that comes out.

      Something similar happened to Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door, because knowing the direction Nintendo's taking the series, I felt kind of sad knowing that I was nearing its end. I did enjoy Origami King well enough, but still, it was a sad feeling.

    2. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      Yeah it happens to me a lot. I do watch a lot of anime but I do tend to watch things when they're done airing. That and I tend to watch things very slowly that I accidently drop things.

      I just spontaneously decided I wanted to watch Milky Holmes after a year or so of dropping it at like episode 5 or so. Bare in mind this is a show from like 2012 or so. I do have really good memory so I do remember stuff pretty well.

  18. Unpopular opinion (I think) - overall, I really don't like Sonic's characterization during the era he was voiced by Jason Griffith. Off the top of my head, I can't think of a Sonic characterization I like less (though I guess there have probably been other characterizations with worse moments, but not as bad overall). He is usually bland and boring in this era, and comes across as a fairly generic hero. That's not who Sonic was designed to be.
  19. Tails should be orange or yellow-orange, not yellow. Do you agree or agree?

    1. Sean


      Yes, also Shadow's fur should be orange again. Someone at Sega really hates orange for some reason

    2. Marcello


      Yes. Yellow Tails looks bad. 

    3. PaulyBFromDa303


      Look at that reaction emote. Does that look yellow to you?

      What ever happened to BROWN Tails? You know, like in AoStH AND SatAM Sonic?

    4. Tails Prower

      Tails Prower

      Orange Tails all the way! Been a Tails fan-boy since I first was introduced to him in Sonic 2 and never liked the change over the years!

    5. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Eh, it works with the arrangement they have now. Tails was made with contrasting Sonic in mind (since they were the only official protagonists at the time), but now Knuckles is part of the team then it fits. Besides, it's not like it's a wildly bright yellow any more.

      Also looking up Tails for reference to make sure I wasn't remembering the colouring wrong made me have to see his movie render again and I can't forgive that.

  20. So far this is pretty interesting. I like the combination of continuities and this new origin for Finitevus has potential.
  21. Belle scares me.

      She kinda reminds me of geno from super mario rpg.

      Its the Uncanny valley at work

      Supah Berry

      Hello, Sonic. I wanna play a game.

  22. I've been thinking a lot lately about how I like and "miss" the trio of Sonic, Tails & Knuckles.

    1. Sean


      I want to see them just hanging out sometimes. I like how the Riders games set them up as being on sightseeing tours before getting caught up in the main events.


    1. KHCast


      This made me cry like an anime fan on prom night 

  24. I finally got around to playing the demo. It's so fun! The level design is great, the music rocks, and the visual style is appealing. I think Sonic's sprite needs some work to look more consistent, but other than that I don't really have any major qualms.
