  1. Wisps are pretty cool tbh

    Just make it so that they're energy fields around Sonic rather than whatever these are

      i kinda like the transformations, but i think they could stand to be a little more stylish. just having a swirly glow around sonic or whatever feels a bit boring.

  2. Just finished a 100% run of UnWiished. Fatigue started to set in at the end getting all the collectables in order to unlock the final mission but overall I'm surprised how well this held up. I still prefer the HD version for various reasons but as somebody who loves Unleashed, the Wii version stands fairly strong as an alternate way to experience the game.  It even handles certain things better than than the HD version.

      i still think it's got one of the most interesting lives systems in any sonic game. one of the few times when i felt a game actually justified having lives, even if they're still not super important to the experience.

  3. Could "two worlds" have been mistranslated or overly literal or something?

    Like, what if Iizuka meant something more like "two societies" rather than two distinct planets?

    I'm probably grasping at straws here, I'm just trying to make the Sonic universe less dumb.

    1. Diogenes

      i think it has been confirmed to be two separate worlds.

      honestly it's dumb but i don't see a need to worry about it. it was a thing for a while before we even knew about it so it's not like it's having some huge effect on the series and you can handwave most of the problems with it just by assuming there's been more travel between them than just the heroes and eggman.

  4. How much time do you think needs to pass before rebooting a TV show or remaking a game?

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      probably depends on how long it stays in the public (or at least fanbase's) consciousness more than there being a specific time scale. eventually it'll reach a point of being fondly remembered but not often watched/played, and i'd say that's about when it's reasonable to consider a remake.

  5. So what's your preferred version of modern Eggman? The lighthearted clownish-jerk with some redeeming qualities from the games or the joker-esc bastard that Ian Flynn tends to portray him as.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      game eggman. sonic is all very silly and i don't need it to continually try to out-evil itself. game eggman's plenty dangerous but he's also a lot of fun in other ways.

  6. Alright guys

    Thoughts on Dodon Pa

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      he's ok. kinda liked the twist that he wasn't actually evil, just eccentric. wouldn't mind him showing up again if they have a reason for it but he might be a bit too tied to the racing theme to get away with it.

  7. I wonder how much we'll wait until a "Now that Sonic Boom is dead Sticks should be canonized in the main games" thread will pop up.

      Keeping Sticks from being canon because she's "annoying" means they should've shelved characters like Silver day one 

      that last part's true though

  9. If Shadow prefers to ride a cruiser/chopper on his downtime, what would Sonic ride

    Every supersonic hedgie deserves his own recreational guilty pleasure

     

  10. I feel like the point of silent protagonists is to keep their personality vague enough for the player to kinda project anything they want onto them.

    ...But Mario isn't like that. He has a defined - if simple - personality, and in some games (Mario vs. Donkey Kong, Fortune Street, etc.) gets full-fledged dialogue beyond simple grunts and catchphrases.

    So I honestly wouldn't mind if they let him talk more.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      not speaking (or speaking very little) becomes just as much a part of a character's identity as anything else, given enough time. i think it'd be hard to give him full spoken dialogue without it sounding "off".

  11. Did we ever get any official media explaining the actual in-between point between Knuckles' tribe being exterminated by Chaos and Knuckles.....existing on his own millennia after?

    Was there like a slither of the echidna race remaining in modern times that he was born from or was he suspended from the past or what? I sometimes feel like this should have been the focus of an Adventure sequel over diverting into the whole GUN vs Gerald lore. Not even Chronicles touches on it.

      nope!

      i imagine some echidnas must've survived chaos' rampage and rebuilt on the island, considering the existence of the hidden palace and technology like the teleporters, but that does leave the question of what actually wiped them out unsatisfyingly unanswered.

  12. Could a Sonic character rock a flowing cape or would that be too busy

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      aesthetically i think it could work. i think there's been a few pieces of official art with the characters wearing capes (halloween stuff mostly) and i don't think it looked out of place. i'd be a bit worried about how well it would animate in a game, though, given all the wild acrobatics the characters do.

  13. Why is Bass.EXE so much cooler than his classic counterpart. 

  14. How would you improve the special stages of the Sonic game with the special stages you hate most?

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      i'm not even sure what could make sonic 1's special stages salvageable. smoother rotation like in the mobile version, more friction so you don't slide around as much, maybe? i give them credit for the cool aesthetic but man they're garbage to play.

      I actually like Mania's alot but I would add some sort of drift button to those.

      meteor herd was ok but it was not so good that we should want more treasure hunting

  18. So how do you guys rank Sonic's television shows from favorite to least favorite?

  19. >Angel Island falls from the sky and lands just yards away from Tails’ house.

    >Tails never mentions it to Sonic.

    >Angel Island falls from the sky again and lands in the same place.

    >Sonic doesn’t notice despite being right next to the crash site.

    ...if an Adventure remake happens, they seriously need to fix this. That’s one hell of a plot point to just straight up ignore.

    1. Diogenes

      space in video games is often an abstract thing. station square isn't "really" just a short loop of road between the hotel and town hall plus an inaccessible little lot near the casino, that's just how they streamlined the idea of a city into something manageable and efficient. likewise angel island probably didn't "really" fall directly into Tails' backyard, or even as close to the train station as it appears ingame.

      that said it's still a huge fuckin' island and someone probably should've noticed.

      Quote

      Honestly, I've always been confused about where the standard land ends and where Angel Island begins in that adventure field.

      the wall right next to the train station, the one that explodes open, that's the side of angel island. everything through that tunnel is angel island, everything opposite it isn't.

  20. Let’s settle this:

    Sonic 1, Sonic 2 MD, Sonic 2 GG, SEGASonic, Sonic CD, Sonic Chaos, S3&K.

    Put them in chronological order.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      1->CD->2 MD->3&K

      the others don't exist

  21. Still waiting for Knuckles to be depicted  in canon as strong enough to punch people out of super forms again. Like heck, imagine base knuckles running towards like, super shadow, fists raised, and shadow showing signs of hesitation even though he's in his super state.

      imagine knuckles exploding into chunky salsa because he doesn't have the element of surprise this time

  22. I like how this looks to play. Probably not the grand reinvention of 3D Sonic people are looking for but it seems fun.

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      yeah this one looks pretty good. still rough around the edges but it's got a better sense of how 3d sonic levels should be designed than the vast majority of projects

  23. When playing Sonic fan games or those testing engines I feel that even as good as control can be...certain abilities are soooo broken.

    I end up thinking how important the limitations of potentially game breaking abilities are...and appreciate it more.

      Things like this makes you realize that Sonic Team aren't as lazy or uncreative as people say they are.
