    Osmium got a reaction from Monkey Destruction Switch in Things you remember, feel nostalgic for, but can’t find   
    There used to be an extremely obscure console called the Pixter which I used to play quite often as a small kid. There was this one game in particular where there were three sections; you would start in a car, the next in a boat, the last in a plane. I think it was math themed in some way. There was this extremely catchy music that played through the whole thing that I remember in a foggy sense. I don't know what the game was called and I have tried looking it up to absolutely no results.

    Osmium reacted to Wraith in "The world will betray you Shadow"   
    All it would take for humanity to turn against Shadow again is for him to be framed or screw up in a serious way. I don't think the character is above either of those things happening to him.

    I sympathize with those saying it would be redundant up above but I've always wanted to see this idea executed better than it has been.

    Watch/read Dorohedoro. It's grimy and gory and goofy and you will come to love every last one of its weird murderous characters.

    Osmium reacted to MightyRay in ARTWORK: Can Mightyray draw? Let's find out.   
    Welp, the end is here. My final art post and my final over all post on SSMB. I asked way back in May of 2018 if folks could offer me a Sonic character to draw, and boy, oh boy, did you guys pop out of the wood work to ask. So with out further ado let's do this!
    All done, just in time for Christmas!
    I was going to have one final post with Ray planting his old reaper staff into the ground (if you're familiar with the RP you'll know what I'm waffling on about.) and walking away but I got caught up in a lot of stuff... so instead I'm going to leave this here as my goodbye message.
    So long SSMB. Take it easy.

    This is one of my favorite songs. A punk classic that is quite funny at times.

    Osmium got a reaction from Strong Guy in Tails: between success and disservice of the character   
    I've talked about this in the past, and it's that I wish that Tails could remain smart, but do it in a more interesting, curious, childlike way. Have him be more mechanically focused, show him with dirt on his hands on the floor dissembling an old radial engine he found lying around, trying to figure out how it works and eventually his work is paid off by putting it in the Tornado or some new aeroplane, stuff like that. Show his logical mindset, examining stuff he finds, always questioning things and taking them apart and trying to improve them literally or figuratively. He can get himself into his own adventures that way while still following Sonic around. 
    There's little to nothing more dismal than present Tails making sarcastic and insecure quips holding up that tablet doing fuck all except being a douche. In LW they turned Tails into one of those generic sitcom "kid genius" caricatures where he can basically do whatever he wants and is a smug little shit the whole time about it.

    Also very quickly this gem has to be shown 

    Sonic and Robotnik are both looking poorly here but the fuck is up with Tails? He doesn't even remotely fit in, and his muzzle looks squeezed out like taffy.

    Osmium reacted to Diogenes in Anyone else bored of Eggman being the villain? Also the series should go back to basics!   
    Well which is it, man? 'cause Eggman's as much a part of "the basics" as anyone. You want to go back to basics and try to get the series back on track, he's really got to be part of it.
    Anyway, Eggman's probably one of the characters I'm least tired of. Once they stopped having literally every monster upstage him (it's fine in moderation but it shouldn't be the climax of every game), I hardly have a complaint about him, and he's consistently been one of the best parts of the series. If anything I want more Eggman; ditch the monsters in favor of some inanimate macguffin and have Eggman be more hands-on in facing the heroes.

    Osmium got a reaction from tailsBOOM! in Nigel Dobbyn (Former Sonic the Comic Artist) Has Passed Away   
    Incredibly unfortunate news. Never met him but always seemed like a very nice, humble person. His artwork and contribution to StC was incredible and has influenced me and thousands more. Never read 2000AD but I’ll have to give it a go one of these days. A big shame he died so young. He won’t be forgotten.  
    Everyone should check out his deviantart as well and give their thoughts. https://www.deviantart.com/handtoeye

    Osmium reacted to Tracker_TD in Nigel Dobbyn (Former Sonic the Comic Artist) Has Passed Away   
    Nigel Dobbyn 1963 - 2019

    Nigel Dobbyn, formerly an artist on Sonic the Comic, as well as being an artist for 2000AD series such as Medivac 318, has passed away. He was 56.
    On Sonic the Comic, he was perhaps best associated with the Knuckles the Echidna stories. As ShayMay puts it best, "Nigel's beautiful, mysterious watercolours were perfect for the Floating Island adventures."

    I met Nigel a couple of times, but meeting him at Sonic the Comic Con will always stick in my mind. He was such a warm, friendly, genuine person, with a wealth of knowledge to share. He had such a genuine love of what he did, and for the people who loved his work. I'm absolutely heartbroken that he's left us, and at only 56.

    Osmium got a reaction from JustAfooL in How SonAmy might benefit the series   
    How do you know for certain? Maybe Amy would find out being an a relationship with Sonic isn't all it was cracked out to be and not to fall for silly crushes anymore. Anyway, not every character has to be constantly happy or fulfilled. 
    So what. You could make any stupid change to satisfy any fringe group's wants. Doesn't mean it's a good thing for anyone in the long run. 
    Sonic isn't a perfect hero in any perspective. That's part of his character. Sonic explicitly doesn't like commitments as they slow him down. Not exactly sure why you want to change that. 
    Sonic is a nomad and doesn't like to be tied down to any one location. All these "benefits" aren't even beneficial to Sonic. 
    The characters don't age. We'd never see their kids as they'll never grow up as far as we're concerned.
    How? Nobody playing a Sonic game is interested in watching a relationship. 
    Actually he wouldn't give a toss. Sonic only saves the world because he feels like it and it is just a pastime to him. He's not a professional superhero and a lineage of planet protectors really isn't something he would be interested in watching over. 
    No they don't. Amy glomps Sonic because she has a crush on him like how she has since day one. 
    Amy in her current portrayal is about as mature as a toddler, so I doubt Sonic is really going to be taking much wisdom from her. Sonic is a free spirit and impulsively goes from situation to situation and I don't know why you want to change that so much. Sonic is how he is, and if you don't like it, too bad. Just admit you don't like Sonic's personality and move on rather than trying to warp it into what you want. This isn't 2002 Archie. 
    Actually I doubt at her age that being in a relationship would be doing that much good for her.

    Osmium reacted to Diogenes in Is the fanbase as large and as active today as it was 10-15 years ago?   
    Sanky's dying. The series keeps burning through goodwill, and its few successes aren't enough to make up for it. It's only natural that people drift away from the fanbase and fewer new faces join up.

    What does this even have to do with anything? The marketing associated with this slogan was only relevant in North America for a couple years and has fuck all to do with modern Sonic.

    A lot of earlier artwork shows a range of sizes and shapes for different animals and Sonic just happens to be on the larger end of the spectrum. If the series continued with an aesthetic like this the main cast probably wouldn't have stood out so much. 

    An old monologue about this I had sitting around:

    I don't consider Tails getting weirdly jealous and Sonic placating him with "no really you're my most specialest friend!" to be a satisfying story. But you can't argue someone into or out of liking something so...I don't know where to go with this anymore.

    A Very Not Gullible Person: Oh boy this guy whose face is on the "dragon's egg" that is supposed to bring doom to my island is totally trustworthy! I should beat up the stranger he tells me is bad.
    A Very Not Dumb Person: Oh boy this guy who brought doom to my island, including stealing the thing I'm supposed to guard and electrocuting me when I tried to stop him, is totally trustworthy! I should beat up the guy who saved the Master Emerald and my island last time, because he said so.
    Knuckles. Is. Dumb. He's not a drooling idiot, he's not incompetent in every area, but he consistently performs below average in matters of common sense.

    Im just really, really bored of fan nods and references, especially in Sonic, which has been self-congratulating for over a decade.
    For just once, I want to see something entirely new. 
    As flawed as Colors was, at least it was fresh. We haven't had a Sonic game with that level of originality since.

    Riiiight. So there's one playable character in this series who has literally used napalm bombs to topple an imperial regime. Three guesses who it is.
    . . .
    You're in cahoots with Dr. Robotnik, aren't you? You don't care about Tails's safety - you care about Robotnik's! Tails has proven himself perpetually youthful and immortal, but Robotnik's life is at risk everytime their paths cross. You're afraid Tails is going to kill him, aren't you?
    Or maybe... maybe you're protecting Shadow? Tails beat Shadow half to death with his bare hands in Sonic Battle, and you're afraid it could be worse next time. Isn't that right?
    Who are you protecting? Who are you shielding from justice, from righteous annihilation?
