    You know, if Surge and Kit are kinda like Sonic and Tails' Wario and Waluigi.

    Then Mario needs to go ahead and have its own version of Shadow. That's right, give us edgy Mario.

      Mario has had almost as many "weird fake Marios" as Sonic's had his own lookalikes.

      fakebros.png 

      In order these are Mask Koopa, Wario (and Waluigi), Mario Clone, Shadow Mario, Doopliss, Cosmic Mario, Bowser Memory ML, and the Cosmic Clones.

      And since you're bringing up comic-exclusive characters like Surge, we'll dig into the Mario expanded lore too, with Pietro - the fake Mario Brother from the Super Show episode, aptly titled "Fake Bro"

      But are they edgy?

    8. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Eh, Wario's canonically gotten drunk, which I suppose for a family-friendly kids' series like Mario might be a little "edgy" in the same spirit as Shadow dropping mild swears.

      Wouldn't need to be Sonic Team games. Character spinoffs in particular could be outsourced to other developers, so it wouldn't cut into development of the next big mainline game.

    Chip and Dale is a 7/10, like I feel it’s a pretty good movie for kids (some aspects maybe be a little pg-13 for them but eh I saw worse a child) I found it pretty fun. Ugly Sonic was pretty funny and the “star” cameo which is not something I was expecting. Got a few laughs out of me, don’t regret watching it, never watchted a single episode of Chip n Dale but might check some out now

    Surge or Scourge? 

    1. Sean

      Sean

      They're both kinda neat

    2. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I'm actually kind of shocked how much I liked Scourge in the long run. He's a very good exploration of the "evil twin" archetype and how that affects someone. 

    3. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      Surge seems a little funnier, and I like that she's not just a slight tweak on Sonic's design even if she's still based on him.

    4. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      They're both cool. I like Scourge more because of far he came from something so basic and the developments that came with giving him more of an identity.

      I don't really see them as equivalents beyond surface level qualities anyway so I think they're both easy to like.

    5. Sean

      Sean

      I'm not the BIGGEST fan of Scourge but I don't think him resembling Sonic is any more of a detriment to his character than say, Eggman Nega being an Eggman recolor.

    6. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I thought people hated Eggman Nega because of how unimaginative he is though...

    7. MetalSkulkBane

      MetalSkulkBane

      I am shocked myself but Scourge was the best Archie Preboot villain, arguably even better than Doctor himself.

      Anyway it's still a bit too early to reply. I think I like that Surge is more original than "evil clone" and she is more tragic, more likeable. BUT in the end Scourge wins because he had a little more fun personality.

      Few examples of his greatness
      - Trying to kick Metal Sonic in the nuts
      - While fighting trying to desperately to keep his crown on his head
      - Getting saved by Sonic (from Metal Scourge) than very purposely not returning the favor
      - "All hail to the king, baby"

      Again, bit too early. Surge must earn her rep to measure up to King of Moebius.

    Saw The Bad Guys today. It was pretty simple, but full of charm. While I do get that Mr Wolf and Mr Snake get the lions share of the personal conflict, I definitely disagree that you could cut the rest of the gang without sacrificing anything, since the heists and the five-way interplay are a significant chunk of the film.

    8. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      @Kuzu I think an WariSonic would just be a comically exaggerated version of the character rather than just “look at him he’s ugly”. He’d still have to look appealing to the general public.

  13. MetKey

    just watched that new chip n dale movie and i feel like ugly sonic is the only thing people are gonna remember from it, movie just felt forgettable

    1. Rabbitearsblog

      Rabbitearsblog

      It seems like that's the only thing I really hear about the Chip and Dale movie. I barely hear anybody actually talk about the movie itself.

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Even if he wasn't in, that's still a thousand other IP cameos for people to gobble up before they get to the actual by-the-numbers plot. (Shrek and Batman in a Disney movie anyone???) It's more concerned on being a meta Roger Rabbit successor than a Rescue Rangers film, though for what it's worth, the IP shilling cameo fest was still handled better than prior attempts like SJ2

  14. Kuzu

    Kuzu

    I'm starting to think a franchise that lasts 20+ years, will just inevitably have the fandom implode on itself at some point. It's disturbingly common it seems. 

    Star Wars...Dragon Ball...Sonic...can't escape it. 

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Oh yes, I just can't stand the toxicity the Sesame Street fandom has degraded into over it's 50+ year run

    2. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      I bet you those do exist, somewhere/ 

    3. Shade Vortex

      Shade Vortex

      I've gotten bitter/cynical to the point of being kicked from Retro's discord for being too negative. I won't stop being interested in the IP because the stuff I liked will always exist, but... If Frontiers isn't good I will give up on Sonic Team's first-party efforts for the foreseeable future..

    4. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      @Shade VortexHow do you get banned from RETRO for being too negative?? That entire site is almost nothing but negativity and cynicism...

    5. Shade Vortex

      Shade Vortex

      That's kind of what I was thinking to myself, too... But you know, I guess getting mad at people who think Sonic has done nothing wrong and people like -us- are the problem with the community did me no favors. As if blind fanboyism/loyal support isn't a much bigger issue for the quality of the series going forward than bitter cynicism- because in their case, it doesn't matter what it is, if it's Sonic, they'll support it...

    6. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I mean it requires the people involved to care.

      You think it's hard to find Sesame Street toxicity? Ask how the fandom viewed Elmo when he debuted in the 80s.

    9. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      @ZayshoThere very fact people are so heated means they care. 

    10. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I was referring to the creative teams.

    11. Kuzu

      Kuzu

      Well I doubt the creatives want to make products that piss people off, but it's not like they're privy to the wants of the fanbase cuz ya know....fanbases aren't hiveminds. 

      Kind of hard to satisfy a fandom of over 20 years, all with different tastes and wants.

    12. Milo

      Milo

      I thought the 90s was when CTW/SW really started capitalizing on Elmo's popularity to the chagrin of fans, he was an borderline Anything Muppet until Clash started performing him in the mid-80s

      Don't disagree otherwise. I'll also throw in people who prefer Sesame Street in its earlier years when it had the 'magazine' format vs. the current 'narrative' approach that's been in use since the 2000s

    13. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      See, most of us Jurassic Park fans agree with each other. Its a mostly peaceful fandom (main fight that breaks out is T-Rex v Spino discussions).

    Rise of Lyric's comedy mostly doesn't do anything special, but I have to admit Knuckles knocking a Ring out of Sonic by accidentally patting him on the back too hard is pretty funny.

    1. VO.SUPER

      VO.SUPER

      The ring was the extra spice on a tired joke to turn it funny. 

    2. JezMM

      JezMM

      The biggest thing I remember about Rise of Lyric's comedy is that the cut-scenes had plenty of genuine laughs, and yet all that goodwill was constantly being undone by the in-game banter being mind-numbingly unfunny.

    3. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Is it wrong for me to say that the game’s comedy is actually funnier than the show?

    4. Dr. Mechano

      Dr. Mechano

      I personally found the show's comedy funnier. ...Most of the time, anyway. That freaking Justin Beaver episode was painful.

    5. Soniman

      Soniman

      Most of the cutscene dialogue is either generic or unmenorable and in game dialogue was just bad so I’m definitely gonna favor the show

      Great animation though

    How do you delete quote blocks on mobile, this is infuriating. I keep accidentally tapping the quote block and it's basically stuck there until I can get access to a desktop computer

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      If you tap around the quote, you’ll notice a small white box with four arrows in it up in the upper left of the quote box, tap that and then hit delete and it should get rid of it

    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Test

      Quote

      I'm seeing the arrows but theres no further menu,and hitting the backspace/delete key on the Virtual keypad is giving me the below text:

      blockquote widgetblockquote widgetblockquote widget

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      That’s odd. Sounds like a bug @Dreadknux?

    4. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      You have to tap the quote block to select it (the entire block should be highlighted), then while you’re in keyboard mode (active within the post area) hit backspace. Might need a couple tries.

      It IS very finicky though I won’t lie. There isn’t an awful lot we can do with it as we’re talking about base code in the website platform and not a design issue. If it’s too problematic I can remove the quote button from the mobile post area so you won’t have to worry about this anymore.

    5. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I still can't get it to delete. If there was an option to switch to the old fashioned BBC or the current equivalent, it would be possible to remove the tags manually, I could do that. 

      Also: I am using an Android with Chrome browser if that makes a difference?

      @Shade VortexTry this mod. It contains a total of 50 rings in DEZ (you kinda have to look for them though) so if you have the emeralds you can even go Super Sonic on Eggman's ass. (Sonic's instashield is also extremely helpful against both bosses)

      But why can't farting and burping only exorcises gas, and not your demons? Don't you wonder how nice it would be if people told you God bless you when you cut the cheese, and that it's only the demon making that bad smell? But here we are, needing to say "Excuse me" ourselves when that happens, yet other people do the excusing for you sneezing.

       

      What kinda excuse is that?

    3. Cosmos Rogue

      Demons don't want to come out of you via smelly farts.
