  1. (TWEET) So there is a rather awesome Sonic cameo in a documentary on Netflix right now.

     

     

  2. You ever notice how every new character gets treated as the worst until a few years later, and suddenly people start liking them and "thinking they have potential".

    It's just weird to see people hate the Deadly Six but stick up for characters like Silver and it makes me go ":///////".

      There's not a fucking meaningless pattern to these things, only dumb people and people trying to post bait believe that.

      The people who were kids when Silver started existing grew up + Silver started being an actual character in the comics so people warmed up to him. 

    2. JosepHenry

      Silver is cool in the comics. Not so much games.

    3. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      Pretty sure a lot of people who follow the games don't care much for the comics.

    4. Wraith

      Then there's option A. People who played Sonic during the Silver wave would be in their late teens by now.

      Opinions and preferences are subject to change for whatever reason as things happen over time and they also can and do differ from your own as well. It’s both perfectly normal and okay.

      That just happens not to be the case for me with either Silver or the Deadly Six as I have liked them from the very beginning. Sure the latter are flat and stereotypical but I can’t say the same about Silver at all.

    6. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      Wouldn't that hold true for the Deadly Six then later on? It's been 6 years since Lost World. 

      And evidently, they do have their fans 

    7. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      Eh, I never hated Silver myself, but mostly because I think his design still fits in the Modern Sonic universe. I really dislike Deadly Six because their designs don't fit a Modern Sonic universe at all. Add to them the boring stereotypes and you make me not like the characters at all.

      So yeah, for me it just comes down to the designs

    8. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      Silver was pretty darn popular with kids around my age (12-15) when I came into the franchise around 2008ish, and I'm pretty sure a lot of that fondness just sticks with you over the years, only that people are now much older, recognize the flaws more, but still like the core of the character and want him to be fleshed out.

      I could see the same thing happen with Infinite, for example. Youtube comments (which seem to often have a little younger demographic commenting, as far as I can tell), for example, seemed pretty darn stoked to anything relating to Infinite. I think it's just not that appearent for us since I feel like message boards like SSMB aren't that big anymore, so we don't experience it first-hand as often.

      The Deadly Six always seemed like characters that didn't catch on that much, though, but there are still people who like them and want them to improve, and that does shine through occasionally, even if the fanbase generally just doesn't seem to care much for them.

    9. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      I'm not saying the Deadly Six are amazing or anything. But in the context of Sonic, they have pretty striking designs which helps them stand out than just being another anthro 

    10. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      Stand out as knock-off Mario enemies maybe.

      Nah, I'll take solid, if not a bit samey anthros than characters that don't fit the universe

    11. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      And what's wrong with that? Is borrowing design elements from other franchises really a bad thing?

      Mario Odyessey may as well be a Sonic game, but nobody cares about that.

       

      And I know execution matters, but I'm focused strictly on the designs themselves.

    12. Wraith

      Wraith

      I'd welcome an unorthodox design that wasn't just cribbing from something else.

      The other Six members tend to have more interesting designs than Zavok does(even though they still aren't great)

    13. Bowbowis

      Bowbowis

      Silver has cool powers and '06, while not great in the writing department, did give him some depth and enough of a personality to earn him some fans. Even if it didn't execute him well it did establish him as having the basics of an interesting character (Plus Rivals came out right after '06 which did him far more justice). Additionally, Silver debuted right as the "Sonic's shitty friends" mentality started taking hold so it's hard to separate valid criticism of Silver immediately post '06 from people shitting on anyone not named Sonic or Eggman writ large, with Silver taking the brunt of it by virtue of being the most recent addition to the cast.

      The Deadly Six meanwhile, look and act more like they belong in a cereal commercial than in a Sonic game. Granted, everything about Lost World would fit better in a cereal commercial than in a Sonic game, but still...

    14. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      I agree actually, but I think Zavok's design works for the type of character he is even if its blatantly cribbing Bowser.

      He's meant to be a demon after all.

    15. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      The thing that just bothers me the most about Zavok is that they just HAD to use the same spike bracelets Bowser had

      I honestly feel like that otherwise, Zavok is distinct enough, but those bracelets just push him over the "Too close" edge for me, I dunno.

    16. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      @Bowbowis See, my thing with Silver is he is blatantly trying to be another Shadow, even if 06 wasn't terrible, I don't think he'd catch on. There's a reason he doesn't get the same attention Sonic and Shadow do, even after people have warmed up to him.

      Beyond that, a lot of what you said can be applied to the Six. You just seem weirdly fixated on their designs.

      I'm not saying borrowing elements is a bad thing, but make the elements look like they make sense in the already established universe, even as loose as Sonic. D6 (and I'd argue Lost World's artstyle in general) just stick out like a sore thumb when compared to everyone and everything else in the Sonic universe, like they're from a different franchise.

      If it was a hard reboot with big design changes to everyone, then I wouldn't have minded the designs (as long as they looked consistent enough), but characters look the same as they looked 2 decades ago.

      or maybe i'm wrong and it's just this weird bias i have.

    18. Kuzu the Boloedge

      The Deadly Six are literally aliens tho, they're not even from Sonic's world.

    19. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      Babylon Rogues are pretty much aliens as well, so not really an argument.

      And it's not like Lost Hex is the first alien planet that ever came to Sonic's world or w/e. Let's take Little Planet in Classic's world. From what I understand, this planet is inhabited by the same animals Sonic's world is inhabited.

    20. Wraith

      Wraith

      No, the Babylon Rogues are descendants from beings that came from off planet. They were otherwise designed to be the Sonic World's take on birds. They're not aliens.

      You can just say you don't like the designs. I think they're pretty uninspired archetypes and that's enough for me.

    22. Kuzu the Boloedge

      I mean, at worst I just think they're boring tbh. But hardly really offensive and it's nice to have a Rogues gallery besides Eggman.

    23. Bowbowis

      Bowbowis

      @Kuzu the Boloedge I said they “look and act” like they belong in a cereal commercial, by which I mean they’re entirely one dimensional. Unlike Silver the D6 don’t have any real, personality, backstory, or motivation to sustain a broader narrative or contribute to world building. They could be mildly amusing in a 30 second ad but not much beyond that.

    24. Kuzu the Boloedge

      Kuzu the Boloedge

      I'd agree with you if they were good guys, but they aren't. Them being villains already gives them a niche that Silver doesn't have.

      Look, I'm not saying you're wrong about them being one-dimensional caricatures, because they are. But at the same time, there's a bit of novelty of having another recurring set of villains besides Eggman.

       

      Like...they're harmless at the end of the day.

      Silver hardly has much going for him either character wise. He 's basically a furry version of Cable from Marvel. Right down to the powers and backstory.

  3. I love how in the ASRT games, Metal Sonic's vehicles had this awesome, unique, futuristic design

    And in TSR it's just like "It's Sonic's car BUT EEEEEVIL"

    Fuuuuuuun

  6. While all these weird game movie ideas are surfacing I have to ask, is the Tetris movie still going to be a thing?

    I can't find much about it.

    1. Blueknight V2.0

      Blueknight V2.0

      I think it's still happening. But I don't see how it would be a movie to begin with.

      As I'm always imagining that they want it to be a surprise. Then when everyone goes to see it, it winds up being 2-hours of tetriminoes being stacked. 🤣 I can just imagine everyone's reaction to that.

      But I really don't think that's going to be the case though.

    2. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      The things is regarding movies, they could be planned pretty quickly while others are in development hell and take absolutely years or even decades to get moving. Some even get scrapped.

      A lot of gaming movies have been planned for years such as Metal Gear Solid, Uncharted, Halo and a bunch more but they haven't come out yet. Some all you hear are director changes in terms of progress. We don't know the progress of the Tetris movie other than no progress as been made since its announcement.

  7. I worry that rushing a drawing will greatly effect the quality. With the contest I wanted to enter, I forgot to take into account the different time zones. So the deadline was going to be much sooner.

    Had to cancel sleep but I did get something that looks like a finished piece of art done in time.

  9. I wonder about adding new characters to the classic Mega Man series by retooling some characters from Battle Network and Star Force...

    They're both of a different universe, so retooling them would cause no issue with canon. Plus, it gives Mega Man more human friends to play with.

  10. NEW PROJECT: Sonic Forces - Sunset Heights (0% complete)

    Target 6 minutes (90%) Editing (10%)

    I'm doing this remix for Sonic Legacy to use in the video of their first issue. The only stipulations are that it has to be "beachy" and I have to time it with the story and the voice acting. I've been coming up with a few ideas over the past few days but I haven't had much time to actually get it down. Work has been pretty hectic as of late. Well now's my chance! Also, I love remixing Ohtani's work because we pretty much share the same Drum 'n Bass genre as our strongpoint. It leaves a lot of room for innovation.

    EA Vancouver's open-world Star Wars game is now binned. (Friendly reminder that this was salvaged from the corpse of Visceral and their cancelled SW single-player game. They died so this project could live...)

    That 10-year exclusive SW game license Disney/LFL hashed out for EA is really paying itself off, amirite?

      One part of me is saying: Well that's one less EA game to worry about.

      Another part of me says: I see that Disney and LucasFilms backstabbing the Vader fan film instantly came back to bite them in the ass.

       

       

       

       

      And a third part say: Wait, there was gonna be an open world Star Wars?

      Disney will get pissed and take their toys back soon. The Spider-Man game is breaking records. Not putting out quality AAA Star Wars titles is just leaving obscene amounts of money on the table

    5. SurrealBrain

      SurrealBrain

      Honestly, I wasn't excited for it anyways. Still, looks like Visceral's Star Wars game is more like Donkey Kong Racing where it was not only given the axe in its original form, even the attempt to alter it into something else was canned.

      The difference being I would have actually liked to have Sabreman Stampede, while this was shaping up to be awful.

    6. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      Star Wars is one of the biggest brands in the world how the hell does EA keep screwing it up? This shit should be easy money for them. 

    7. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Yet another one? Yeah, sounds more like EA has issues with themselves rather than Star Wars even if the bulk of it is due to that. Probably the staff from that are working on FIFA 20... Vancouver is EA Canada, right? Heard the other one (Motive I think) having problems with their Star Wars game too and the lead producer left EA with the latter not feeling mutual. Probably DICE is scrambling right now to do a Battlefront 3 and some people from there left to go to another studio more recently.

      That's what you get for putting all your eggs into two baskets with the other basket developing a hole (Sports and DICE). I think if it weren't for FIFA and Madden for that easy money, EA would have been gone by now.

      @Dejimon11 Not just EA but LucasArts themselves also kept screwing up cancelling all sorts of Star Wars games at its later days. Battlefront 3, Darth Maul, Rogue Squadron trilogy (on the Wii so the first game would have been remade) and the most well known 1313. Star Wars 1313 would have been a PS4/Xbox One title and that was the game along with Watch Dogs that caused people to hype up for those consoles even though people didn't know what they were. It says a lot when all it got before EA during the 7th gen were the two Force Unleashed games with the second being rushed out, Kinect, some Clone Wars tie ins and a bundle of the first two Lego Star Wars games.

      There is a rumor that the people who worked on Star Wars 1313 are currently working on a Ridge Racer game of all things but I don't believe that.

  23. I know its a long shot as it wasn't the most talked about game ever, but I wouldn't mind having Mirror's Edge on the Switch. It was one of my favorite games on the 360 and having that on a handheld would be neat.

    1. Polkadi~♪

      Polkadi~♪

      The more people know of Mirror's Edge, the better. Most underappreciated game I've ever played!

      I'd definitely be up for a re-release, on anything.
