  1. He's afraid of lightning, though it doesn't come up much. Also he was afraid to fight Eggman alone in SA.
  2. Well, the leak is looking pretty legit now. I guess I should be glad they at least updated the design from "dumpster fire" to "awkward imitation"...it still doesn't look great, and it's not going to save the movie, but at least this won't be giving anyone nightmares. ...probably. Probably should wait to see it in motion before saying that.
  3. Nuke animal world to cinders, survivors flee to human world, never speak of it again. The solution to the two worlds issue.
  4. Feels a bit contrived for someone infected to be able to sneak in when Gemerl can trivially scan everyone and has been hyper-vigilant about any zombots getting in. Minor complaint, though. Otherwise the issue's fine...though I still don't feel like the emotional beats land as well as they should. T&W continues to be much more successful at that.
  5. Most early Sonic media didn't give much focus to humans aside from Eggman. He was the only human in the (non-spinoff) games until SA, SatAM and early Archie were just him and Snively IIRC, AoStH may have had one or two randos but they were a clear minority. Compared to all of the heroes, most of the innocent bystanders, and the few other villains all being animals, it was easy to get the impression that the few humans were outliers in an animal-dominated world...until SA came about and made that very clearly not the case.
  6. where's my marine the raccoon spinoff sega

      Joke or not, I would buy this. SRA had one of the best stories IMO and I’d kill for more games like it. 

  7. Budget's not the concern, reception is. How your main character sounds is a pretty big deal, and Classic Sonic's never had a canon voice. Instead of risking picking a voice that people wouldn't be happy with they just kept him silent.
  8. As I remember it most people complained about the annoying in-level dialogue. Nobody liked hearing the same lines every time they went through a loop in Heroes or every partner character shouting at Shadow in ShtH. And Classic Sonic was silent in Gens because finding the right voice for a character is a tough thing and they just decided to pass on the risk rather than pick one and disappoint people. It's not fundamentally different from the complaints some Modern fans have made about Modern Sonic's VA changing.
  9. I've got issues with the lack of real 3D gameplay in the series myself, but a game isn't inherently worth less just because it's 2D.
  10. What did that have to do with classic fans? I figured they cut it because it was almost entirely meaningless fluff, and it got annoying to hear the same things repeated a hundred times.
  11. I'd say parts of this fanbase have developed an unhealthy hoarding mentality, where everything's got to be saved because surely it'll be good and useful eventually. Sometimes it's ok to get rid of things. Sometimes you need to get rid of things. And it's not just "classic pandering" to try to tell a story in a different way.
  12. While I wouldn't do away with dialogue/voice acting in the series entirely I'm not really bothered by the idea of the characters not talking some of the time. There's a lot that can be done without dialogue and Sonic characters are well suited for silent acting, with their expressive oldschool cartoon-inspired designs and big, bold personalities. We saw it in action with both Mania Adventures and TSR Overdrive, and the characters have hardly ever been more appealing even with that "limitation". If Sega was actually up for it, and could afford to do the animation properly, I can't see any reason why a voiceless game couldn't work just fine. The only time I feel it's been an actual problem is Generations, not because I think Classic Sonic should have talked, but because he was the only one who didn't, other Classics included. If everyone was silent, or if they at least made it a trait of the Classic characters it'd be fine, but when it's just him it reads as a personality trait and that doesn't fit his personality.
  13. No this issue is a flashback, it happens at the same time as last issue, while Tails was at his lab.
  14. All mobian parents are to be executed during their child's sixth year of age to maximize their child's freedom and foster a sense of independence.
  15. Pretty sure more than one snowy mountain is allowed to exist. And if you don't buy that, we could pretend the crevasse Sonic jumps to escape the avalanche is the border between Angel Island's Ice Cap and an unnamed snowy mountain on the mainland and they just happened to line up when the island fell.
  16. Sometimes space is weird in video games, some stuff is compressed, some stuff is stretched, but when a game shows you a thing is in a certain place, you should accept that even when it is weird unless you have a damn good reason to think otherwise. Sky deck is still part of the Egg Carrier even if you can't see it in cutscenes or the adventure field, we don't go assuming it's actually somewhere else. When the designers choose to put the entrance to Ice Cap on Angel Island, that is them saying that Ice Cap is on Angel Island. e: also Knuckles is weird around girls because he is an awkward hormonal teenager.
  17. Days, going by the Japanese manual. Doesn't actually work in reality though, since you get there from Angel Island...
  18. SA2 gave us a pretty good look at how Eggman would react. He's got a measure of respect for Sonic, he might take a moment to show it, but he's still gonna get back to executing his evil plans pretty quick. Everyone else...well, I'd say Forces is reasonably close. Some characters (Amy in particular, see again SA2) would be more broken up if he was unambiguously dead rather than missing and possibly dead, but they'd still pull together and do what they could. What shape that would take and how successful they'd be depends on what exactly Eggman's up to; I don't believe the point of Forces was ever that, without Sonic, everyone else is incompetent, but that they were fighting a losing war against a seemingly untouchable opponent but with the help of Sonic, other Sonic, and You they were able to turn the tide back in their favor. If Eggman managed to pull some similarly overpowered ace out of his sleeve things could end up like Forces, otherwise there's enough superpowered animals around to beat him back, if maybe not as efficiently.
  19. "Leaks are usually always legit", what? How long has this guy been on the internet?
  20. Not really. It's not like many Sonic characters have had their powers explained. Pretty much just Shadow I think.
  21. Looks vaguely close to when he's in his ship in the skyscraper scene...it's not a match (he's got way more neck in the trailer), but the "leak" looks kinda warped to me, like someone fucked around with the liquefy tool or something, so who knows. Sonic...I guess he looks better, but...not good. First one looks like an awkwardly posed figurine.
  22. Okay. Do you maybe want to explain the relevance of this to the discussion at hand, instead of making a dozen more vague posts?
  23. ok but what about sonic's oral limits
