  1. Hello, my name is Jonathan and late last year I decided I'd cope with depression and unemployment by being creative. I have recently been accepted into university to study 2D Animation and Stop Motion. I love to draw, and while I was putting my portfolio together I found a piece of art I made using Art Academy on the Wii U, Scrambled Egg Zone and the Silver Sonic fight. Sonic 2 for the Master System, what a game! I grew up with this one and didn't get to play the Megadrive trilogy until I got Sonic Jam for the Saturn. I love the art style, the strange level tropes, the music and the variation. It's a punishing game but I still enjoy to complete it in about 40 mins from time to time. I've been quietly appreciating SAGE and the wonderful efforts that have come out of our fandom. I am especially excited for the Sonic Chaos and Triple Trouble remakes! But what about MY favourite game? Well I'm doing something about that. Using the Open Surge engine that debuted at SAGE 2019, with the co-operation of it's community, my partner, who is a programmer, I am remaking the 8 Bit version of Sonic 2! I aim to: - Recreate the game's unique art style using digitised hand drawn assets coloured using the original game's palette - "Modernise" the original experience (for example, 2 acts per zone each with bosses, special stages, drop dash, cutscenes) - Make the level design fun and in line with Sonic 3 and Mania standards - Have fun and put a new spin on my favourite title - Have a demo of Under Ground Zone release in 2020 Finally, I am looking for anybody who also loves this game, and wants to remix it's soundtrack! The more people want to contribute the better! Thank you for reading this post, may you have a happy new year and keep on expressing yourself!
  2. I know. GASP! SHOCK! This is not the question you want to ask Sonic fans! But, what if there was a scenario where SEGA just up and decided to not make anymore Sonic the Hedgehog games? Would this affect the gaming community as a whole or would the fanbase do everything in their power to bring this franchise back? For me, I don't see Sonic the Hedgehog going anywhere any time soon. I mean sure, this franchise had hit a lot of low points during its run, but it does have a massive fanbase that will fight tooth and nail to make sure this franchise succeeds. Also, since the movie proved to be a huge success, it would be wrong for SEGA to suddenly pull the plug on the franchise just when it seems like the franchise is seeing new popularity again.
  3. Okay, these are looking pretty presentable now. Gonna go ahead and spin this into it's own topic since they're far removed from my traditional art. Anyone familiar with Heroclix, or Warhammer? (I'm only familiar with former honestly. ^^;), Miniature tabletop gaming? I casually fall in and out of Heroclix, which is a tabletop wargame that, at least to me, seems more approachable then Warhammer. It's kind of like chess with the flexibility of trading card games. It's Mostly kept alive with waves of Marvel and DC characters, though it has crossed over to other series every now and again. Anyways, one of my pipe dreams was to make custom units of series that'll probably never see their way into the game. (Though I don't know, they throw some good curveballs like Street Fighter, Yu-gi-oh, and TMNT). Well that's looking less and less like a pipe dream now. Have at look at some miniature Sonic sculptures I'm working on. These are sculpted from scratch, and I just hand painted them. Still have a few details I want to add paint wise, namely shading effects. You may notice Bunnie's limbs are black, and Nicole just has a primer layer and splotches. Those are some of the details I plan to get to. Oh and the eyes are kind of hit, or miss. Before paint: Yes, the plan is to will figures of the core Freedom Fighters into existence; (that includes Sonic and Tails), and I'll branch off from there. Probably doing the core game cast next. So, if your not into the FF, don't worry! I'll cover the usual suspects ere long. Though they're not on Clix bases, I am also thinking up Clix dials for them to use in home games. What do you think? I know Sally's kind of not up to scale with the others, but this could of gone so much worse then it did. Do you have any experience with Warhammer and such tabletop games? I've wanted to do something like this for so long, but I was always searching for information in the wrong places. I learned about heavier duty sculptures instead, and didn't even realize "miniatures" was the word for this scale sculpture until recently. Once I did it all clicked into place.
  4. I know Sonic has been portrayed differently in most media all over the world but I wonder if our cultural values and norms affect how he is portrayed?
  5. I have always been so tired of people being surprised that i like sonic at the volume that i do, but its always greeted with the "sonic is so bad" and i understand that there are a few games that are certainly bad. I try not to let it get to me because sonic means alot to me so a couple of people arent going to make me change and i want his games to get better and i KNOW they will get better. The movie's success has certainly helped in his reputation, but does anyone have any situations similar to this?
  6. I don't know if this has been documented at all, but have there ever been comments/discussions by Japanese Sonic fans/developers on the Western redesigns of Eggman to Robotnik? I've always wondered what they thought of these different interpretations of the mustachioed madman. Also there's that SA1 concept art of Eggman that seemed to have some SatAM vibes; so its possible that some at SOJ must've seen these designs at some point. Any dug up or recent info would be appreciated!
  7. I was thinking it would be fun to sharing inspiring pumpkin carvings since Halloween is almost here. Here is one I would love to attempt: A traditional Shadow pose from SA2. To share with all the legend of “The Ultimate Lifeform.” Please share Sonic related carving you’d like to attempt, your own carvings or other non Sonic choices.
  8. If you know me by now, I have a ton of respect, love and concern for sonic and his creators. they've been in such a bizarre place for such a long time, but Sonic team, looking at the comments they made on fan games and videos, has proven that they've been listening to it's fans, one of the best examples being Christian Whitehead and where he stands now. sonic mania is not only one of my favorite games, but also one of the highest rated sonic games of all time, even surpassing sonic adventure 2, one of my other favorite games. their are a lot of fan games that have consolidated a direction for sonic to take going forward, but when you look at the pitches & editorials that they've made, holy cow they're amazing. I wish I could show you one I love the most but it's one that isn't allowed in this forum so I'll leave it for now. however, this fanbase has been through so much derision and bad games that whatever move This team got, the fans go critical, some even lost trust with this team. they've lost all of the optimism because of Sonic Forces, and now all this separated fanbase feels about sonic team is distrust, cynicism, and bleakness. they constantly go make a fangame with literally no originality from all of the others and go "hey look I'm better than sonic team" (which in retrospect, they are, sonic forces was made by inexperienced developers who'd be better off working on something else at this point. We'll get to that game later just you wait.) to the point where the only thing it takes to BE better than sonic team is to go on a physics engine and make a sonic game level that basically goes in a straight line, but said straight line has some multiple "paths" so It generally means they're better (despite mortar canyon existing). it literally takes no skill to be better now, and that only SOURS sonic team's reputation more to such a disgusting degree. Sonic Team is in a confusing fever dream of a place because of all this. to start things off, sonic team has a lot of live and spark despite what people say, rockin music, nice staff and a ton of care for this franchise like we do. but after sonic forces, sonic team has so many holes of lost members, we were promised a game made by the people who made colors and generations, but instead we got level designers who were only experienced with lost world, writers who only worked on happy tree friends and knew nothing about this franchise, 3 years wasted on make a graphics engine because the old one couldn't use next gen hardware and only had one year to work on the game, after all this, parts of the team left. it makes sense why these fans feel betrayed and they shouldn't have to cope with this, But Sonic Team shouldn't feel Desperate making a new game either. to reiterate all this: The fans are full of creativity and care for this franchise. the trade-off is that this has gotta be the most critical fanbases of all time, not that it's a bad thing, criticality is quite helpful overall. but the thing comes with a huge amount of cynicism and distrust, to a point where when you say your better than sonic team, you're now factually right by the fans. Sonic Team is just as caring for this franchise as we are, the creativeness isn't really there though because of the inexperienced members. but the biggest trade-off is what this franchise now represents to the fans after forces. forces, for all the fun I had with it, is shallow, mediocre, hollow fan-service that was only made to please the already broken fanbase with an already incompetent game. overall, Sonic's future is literally unpredictable, there's no telling what this company is going to do next, there is evidence that can consolidate a direction that sonic team can possibly go, but after that, what about the fans? what will the fans do? why would they do it? this fanbase is so unpredictable that Sonic Team thinks there's no idea what they want. I just don't know what to do about this, any thoughts you guys?
  9. Why It Took So Long For Me to Upload The Doomsday Project 4-Episode Finale Of SatAM Clip From My "#LIVE: Topics On My Mind For 9-28-2020 (Sonic The Hedgehog/My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic )" livestream In this clip, I discuss why it took me so long to upload this onto YouTube.

  10. Hello, I'm Dory. I'm pretty new here! Recently I've been having fun learning how to use GarageBand to make songs. I guess I'll get straight to the point: I don't know what I feel like making, so I'm turning to you for suggestions! Is there a Sonic song that you think would be cool if someone remixed it in a different style? Or do you know someone making a project who needs some original compositions? I'm still a noob, and so far I only know how to use soundfonts. What I've been doing is taking Sonic Unleashed songs and rebuilding them using the Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver soundfont, since those are two of my all-time favorite soundtracks. I've uploaded my remixes to YouTube, so I can share the link if anyone is interested in hearing what I'm capable of at this point. I hope everyone is having a good day. c:
  11. Hey there! I've been having so many thoughts for about four years...How can I improve Sonic R? Well I've got it, but I would need a team. Coders, Concept Artists, Musicians, a team to help make Sonic R the game it should have been. If you'd be interested please let me know! Unfortunately, I may be a bit under experienced in coding, and my art isn't good like lots of other people, but I can still try, and I enjoy music a lot as well, so I can help arrange songs! Please let me know if you'd be interested! Thank you so much!

The match ends when one team depletes the other's health bar. Also either damage the opponent or provide various status effects like increasing attack power, or lowering the opponent's defense. Players are also able to customize their character's jutsu and select two support characters to use in a match. The playable characters also have unique moves, their different types to use . Shot moves center around using a projectile to damage the opponent from a distance. Power moves focus on dealing damage quickly in a single move.

Leave you're down below comments?
  14. Hey all, For many months now, I have been hard at work restoring an old website that some of us used to use long ago. Many of you may be familiar with the acronym MFZ, which stood for "The Mystical Forest Zone." For many Sonic creators, this place represented a creative place that held all sorts of comics and sprites. I for one used to use this site all the time for my personal projects. As of 2014, the site no longer exists with no way to access their archives except through the wayback machine. You no longer have to wait hours just to access your favorite sprites. I have now finished a complete restoration of their archive, including additions being made by our members to continue where it left off. There are plans for having a convenient uploading tool to easily add new sheets, but until I finish that part, all creators are welcome to join our small community in the forums or in our Discord. We are currently accepting new sheets to the collection, as well as encouraging anyone who wants to start their own sprite projects. I thought some of you might want to enjoy this resource for yourselves, and hope for old time sonic spriters that this will bring a bit of nostalgia for you. Sprite Archive: https://sgxp.me/sprites.php Discord: https://discord.gg/jxxTjzJ Edit: We now have a subreddit!: https://www.reddit.com/r/SGXP/
  15. I've heard most people say Sonic has always been 15. Sometimes I hear 16, 17, any many more. Though I'm sure he's 15, What's your thoughts? (If you can, please put in the ages of Sonic Characters that are not on this list) http://sonic.sega.jp/SonicChannel/character/tails.html
  16. I'm currently reading "Sonic and the tales of deception", one of the last Sonic-related books in being released, and despite how cheesy it feels at times, I'm enjoying it. As a matter of fact, the more I read, the more I want SEGA to start investing in this type of content. Let's imagine for a second the amount of possibilities Sonic literature can easily open for this franchise: Prequel books that provide the fans with more context and backstory from the games. Short novels based on the IDW comics, or even the Sonic cinematic universe. Informative books that give us an inside look of locations, artifacts, and the background story of every character of the series. Gotta ask, am I the only one who wants to see stuff like these?
  17. I prefer the North American soundtrack of "Sonic CD" over the original JP/EU one. I just think the North American tracks better suit the surroundings than the JP/EU ones do. Take the Present and Good Future themes of Palmtree Panic for example: The North American version sounds exactly like a tropical paradise, whereas the JP/EU versions just sound like something that would play during the Kids' Choice Awards, what with the children cheering and game-show-esque tune. I prefer the NA version of Palmtree Panic's bad future as well. The North American one does a much better job at making the player feel like they've failed than the JP/EU version does. The original JP/EU version sounds more like something that would play at a dance party. The NA track sounds sad, creepy, and really tells you that you screwed up. The JP/EU track is just silly in comparison. Another good example would be the bad future of Collision Chaos. The North American version perfectly fits the atmosphere of this creepy, long-deserted casino. The eerie guitar riffs, those ghostly sounds, what's not to love? The JP/EU version is far too upbeat for the scenario. The NA track makes you feel guilty for not destroying those robot generators and getting yourself in this mess. The JP/EU one does anything but that. Before you point it out, I am aware that the JP/EU soundtrack is the original and that the North American soundtrack was only added when the game came to the USA and Canada. However, I still prefer the North American soundtrack over the original, because it does a far better job at fitting the stages and environment than the original soundtrack does. Even listening to the two soundtracks on their own without acknowledging them as Sonic soundtracks, I prefer listening to the North American soundtrack. I prefer it not only as a Sonic soundtrack, but as a soundtrack in general. It's so ambient and has irresistible rock sprinkled throughout most of the tunes to boot. Not that I have a problem with anyone who prefers the original JP/EU soundtrack. It's quite well known in the Sonic community that people generally prefer the JP/EU soundtrack over the NA one. I'm just one of the few people who disagrees with them.
  18. This thread is for all you Bloons fans such as myself. Straying of to other games in the franchise is fine.
  19. I'm currently working in the construction of +Sonic, a new guild on Ruqqus. While I do not recommend to join our guild in this current state, I do would like to encourage you to give it a look. This forum will change a lot in the next couple of months! Peace out!
  20. Amy was "cute and full of energy", as she would call herself in Adventure. But I don't know what she'd call herself nowadays, except "bland". I get trying to have her "mature" (which she was never as bad as people made her out to be in the games imo) but couldn't you have done that without taking her whole personality? She's so boring now. The last time she ever did anything was Unleashed. Nowadays she's just... there. Like I said, I feel like people really exaggerated her crush on Sonic. They saw Sonic X and used that interpretation on everything. Her crush was only emphasized for jokes like in Heroes. People talk about her chasing Sonic but they never talk about her speech to Shadow about how not all humans are bad. Or turned Gamma against Eggman through kind words. Or had a robot chase her throughout the entire story just to protect this bird. And then put the hurt on him when he finally got to it. Amy was a sweet character whose bad side you wouldn't want to get on. If Old Amy was "immature" and New Amy is mature, shoot, give me immaturity any day. Amy used to have been my only problem with the IDW comics. She felt like Sally 2.0 to me. Then someone told me it because she was overworked since she's the only Sonic character besides Knuckles that would be leader. That made alot of sense to me.
  21. Being a huge Sonic the Hedgehog fan and having a massive crush on Spider-Gwen, i have one question that pop up in my mind. What would happen if Sonic meets Spider-Gwen?
