  1. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    So what are these massive differences a comic book contains that makes it so they can't have stories without backstories and motivations?
  2. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    Alright, maybe this is just me, but I'm motherfucking glad Sonic isn't one piece. I don't bloody care about motivations or background events that drive the characters, I just want people who do shit and that's what defines what their characters are, what they do in the present. You take them as they fucking are. It may be shallower than some other things but that's exactly how I like it when it comes to Sonic. I don't need some backstory or motivation to make it "respectable", that actually ironically sounds pretty-narrow minded to me @Shaddy the guy.
  3. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    I don't know why it's so out there for maybe Sonic to just not care who or where his parents are. I mean yeah it's not written in but is it really in character for Sonic to care? I mean he doesn't remember 99% of the people he runs into every day, why would he remember people who he hasn't seen since he was a very small child most likely?
  4. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    That actually is funny in a bit of a sick way, like his parents have no idea where he is and are worried to madness everyday about him, meanwhile thousands of miles away someone's like "hey Sonic do you have a family?" and Sonic's like "lel I dunno" But yeah don't show them, I like the simplicity of not knowing anything of their existence because Sonic doesn't too. And Sonic doesn't much care about it.
  5. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    What's the point of showing them honestly? Sonic probably doesn't even remember their existence, so are we just going to show them sitting around with their thumbs up their arses in some side story that has nothing to do with anything? I mean it's not wrong to do I guess but it sounds like a waste of time. Plus I think it would ruin a bit of the simplicity of Sonic's story. I mean isn't it enough that we just know he must have had parents to exist, and he probably left them at a young age or something?

      i mean he totally does suck i don't know why he hasn't been banned yet

  7. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    Don't do it. Sonic shouldn't know or care where his parents are since it doesn't even come across his mind.
  8. Nigel Kitching vs Ian Flynn

    1. Super Mechanio

      Super Mechanio

      I prefer Ian's work on the whole, though this comes with the caveat that I'm open to seeing how Kitching does with more game-accurate material.

      Kitching was a good writer, but I wasn't really a fan of the western Mobius setting that he had to work with - with the really grim red-eyed Robotnik, the Kintobor backstory, etc. I'd be interested in seeing how Kitching's writing would be when applied to more game-like characters and settings, though. 

    2. Forterror-Metallix


      I'd say Ian does better with game lore, but Nigel's specialty is doing his own thing with the material. 

      (Also, fun fact: These two met at Summer of Sonic years ago. Nigel even offered Ian the rights to the Brotherhood of Metallix!)

    3. ShroomZed


      @Super Mechanio the thing is with Kitching that whenever they did game adaptations it was always because they wanted to do it, not because they were forced to. All the adventure design changes were their own choices. 

    4. Super Mechanio

      Super Mechanio

      Right. That led to an interesting mesh of AoStH Robotnik and SA Eggman.

    5. Lord Basil (Ogilvie)

      Lord Basil (Ogilvie)

      Based on what I've seen from both, Ian actually cares about the franchise, so I have to support him on that basis alone.

      That's not to say Kitching's work is bad (it's quite the opposite), but I got the impression he's more interested in doing his own thing and Sonic was just a vehicle.

      Fortunately it never evolved into the mess that happened with Penders who seems to have a similar thing going on.

    6. ShroomZed


      I'd disagree with that though, as like I said they were always willing to do stuff that tied in with the games. It's nothing like Penders who literally couldn't care less about Sonic. 

    7. Mister X

      Flynn's written some really good stories over the past decade or so, but I think Kitching is a bit better overall. I liked the way he wrote the characters.  A lot of the Knuckles stories in particular were great. 

      Sometimes Flynn seems like he's almost too much of a fan, if that makes sense. Like he has to reference every little thing and gets so focused on fleshing out all the background minutiae and lore that the main stories themselves are weak. Sometimes it's fine, but there are times where it just feels like pandering. Felt the same way about his Mega Man run, tbh.

      Actually, come to think of it, does Kitching write comics anymore? I kinda want to see how he'd handle the modern stuff.

      That's a damn good photo.

  10. IDW's Sonic the hedgehog(coming 2018)

    For my most grounded answer I don't want any character from any other media showing up, but another side of me wants to see Grimer from StC show up just because. I've always liked Grimer and it would be weird/interesting to see Ian try to write him and have him be subservient to basically SEGA Eggman now.
  11. The story of Sonic - as originally perceived

    I'm convinced there are two sets of Chaos emeralds at this point. Sonic possessed the set from Sonic 2 (as he goes Super Sonic at the beginning) and there is a set that has been on Angel Island for presumably millennia. In the JP manual these emeralds are stated to disappear as the Death Egg hits. This I think means the emeralds vanished into the special zone as a reaction of some sort. Knuckles becomes aware of Sonic's chaos emeralds through Eggman and Knuckles takes them as we know at the beginning of Sonic 3 (the reason why Knuckles would take these from Sonic is because he now perceives Sonic as a threat, as I don't think he would be convinced that Sonic stole these from him unless he thought Sonic was some sort of god) . But then Sonic finds giant rings and is transported to the special zone to find chaos emeralds. These I believe are the ones that vanished when the Death Egg hit. What happened with Sonic's set AKA the ones that Knuckles now have is he put them in Hidden Palace Zone on those special pedestals (which are notably different than the pedestals that the original Angel Island set was sitting on, as in the manual its stated that Knuckles had to run around the island to see each emerald). For some reason this makes them into those big black silhouettes that you see in Mushroom Hill Zone on, maybe it's the emeralds reacting to the hidden palace altars which hadn't been used for presumably millennia again and the power ratios are different, idk. The reason why he puts them in the hidden palace is because the original pedestals were destroyed as the Death Egg hit. When Sonic makes it to the hidden palace, he takes out the set which he got (which is really the Angel Island set) and at this point I imagine the SK special stages are just allegory to show that the two sets are now combining one by one. These combined sets are what are referred to as the Super Emeralds and I think this is how the emeralds were originally thousands of years ago when Angel Island was still part of the planet. Of course Super Emeralds and Hyper Sonic aren't canon anymore, but this is the best possible explanation to how Sonic 3's JP manual works. Maybe after S3K the emeralds stay in this diamond cut shape but are released from Angel Island and for whatever reason and they shrink in size, maybe from not being in the hidden palace pedestals which maybe work a certain way to keep them in place and so require a set size for them, idk.
  12. Okay, no it is not. I wasn't planning on posting today, but this is not what Sonic the Hedgehog is at all. What about the lore of the classic games resembles Dragon Ball at all? And don't say Super Sonic, that was clearly meant to be a very out of left field parody. There are parody elements in the series like the Death Egg but the IP itself is not a parody of anything and was never intended to be.

    I'm in hot summer humid continental Dfa myself.
  14. I think I'm getting back to that point where simply coming on this website starts to make me very angry, maybe it's time to calm my jets. 

    1. Mightyray


      That would be a good idea. Best to take it easy here.

    2. CleverSonicUsername


      Every time that happens to me I just take a step back and remember it's Sonic the Hedgehog, none of this matters, and we're all going to die eventually.

      I cannot lie when I think this is a good idea and in your best interest to take some time away from here.

      You really haven't been acting like yourself lately and as I friend of yours I don't like it. I don't like it at all.

      It's very frustrating as both a friend and also as moderator here to see you acting this way with all the unpleasantness around here that I and the other mods have to deal with and you are definitely contributing to it to be completely honest with you.

      Hopefully some time away from here will get you to cool off.

      Speaking as a friend, I must admit, you have been acting a bit more heated to a bit of an unpleasant degree.

      In times dark like this, it is best to take a break from the framework here.

    6. TailsTellsTales


      Yeah it is really important to take breaks. It will help keep you calm.

  15. The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    Yeah I agree with what you are saying, this is an absolutely ridiculous idea when it comes to actual practicality and cost, that's obvious. I was just saying the structure itself could exist, it's not "geometrically impossible". Still though this is a pretty useless conversation really. And slightly offtopic but sub-tropical regions are just latitudinal regions on Earth, which includes arid and semi-arid regions. Just looking at the range of climate types on the US-Mexican border makes this all a laugh, as there are both hot deserts and cold deserts with varying degrees of aridity and on the Californian coast the climate turns Mediterranean, and on the Gulf of Mexico it's humid subtropical. So there's indeed an enormous range of precipitation, temperatures, and humidities. Yeah I was just arguing that a structure of it's sort could technically exist but not at all in the open system we call the real world.
