  1. 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.
  2. What do you need to play sonic omens from begging to end? What kind of computer, the specs on the computer,and how to run unreal engine? I downloaded the game from gamejolt but I cant figure out how to play it, I was wondering if someone could make a video of how to install/setup from beginning to end and what kind of computer to use. The game is built on the unreal engine 4 but, I don't even know how to get that lol. HELP! https://gamejolt.com/games/SonicOmens/469351
  3. To anyone out there that has a DC and a copy of phantasy star online, who wants to open a server and play online? If you already have a server and a team I would love to join as long as you don't feel like your absorbing me, I'd rather have a partnership, an equal exchange of energy.
  4. So, what are some ways that you would convince SEGA to start improving the Sonic games? Here's how I would go about it: SEGA is a business and therefore, they would want to make lots of money off of their properties. Since Sonic the Hedgehog is a franchise that not only caters to children, but can cater to adults as well, SEGA would need to bring back the spin off games again. SEGA is in a much better position now business wise than they were years ago and since they are now making deals with Microsoft and other companies, maybe they could convince Microsoft or the other companies they established partnerships with to make some spin off games relating to Sonic the Hedgehog. The spin off games can be geared towards the younger audience, since that's the audience they want to go for, while the main games could be geared towards the older audience, who want a more fleshed out story and gameplay for the series. Even though SEGA had made it clear that they wanted the series to gear more towards the younger and casual audience, it would be a huge disadvantage if they didn't make some games that also catered to the older audience since they would be receiving double the money from both kids and adults who are fans of the games. What do you think about this and what are some ways you would convince SEGA to improve the series?
  5. So, there's been a lot of complaints about how Sonic Team has been handling the games for the last 10 years (and with good reason). So, I was wondering, what would need to change completely to make Sonic Team get better with making the games? For me personally, I think the problem here is there's been a bit of mismanagement in regards to handling the franchise for the last few years. For one thing, they need to have writers who can craft good stories instead of doing stories halfway or make cringe dialogue. Another thing they need is to have people who can actually do the game mechanics well and be experienced with it; not someone who is completely new to the game mechanics. They also need someone who can communicate with the fans better. I felt like there's been a lack of communication between Sonic Team / SEGA and the fans and if they could get someone who can do fan polls or anything to connect better with the fans, then they would be able to do some fan demands right.
  6. So interesting article I read today about how storytelling and writing for comics from comic book writer, Peter David. He speaks about the difficulties faced when writing an ongoing superhero story, and how writers face a constant problem of how to progress a series, particularly in regards to the "illusion of change". The term was originally coined by the late Stan Lee in how he described that the most important thing when writing superheroes is selling the idea that the status quo is changing when it fundamentally isn't. You've seen all of the time; characters die, but are brought back. Etc etc. So to get to my point and how this relates to Sonic, I've noticed that the series kind of in a similar position or arguably worse. The Sonic series is almost constantly at odds with itself between actually having meaningful changes that matter, versus preserving the elements that people like about the series. Its like every major product pertaining to Sonic either changes very little and becomes stagnant or it changes too much and deviates from its core values. As far as this pertains to the storytelling and characterizations, just look at the controversies surroundings characters like Tails Knuckles and Shadow? For a while, they hardly felt like they mattered (And Knuckles arguably still doesn't matter right now) so then Sega decided to shift their characters in a different direction...and of course, people hated the changes and want them to be reverted back to what they were before. So what's the solution to this? How can a long running series like Sonic make significant changes forward without changing the fundamental aspects of it? Change too little and people get bored, change too much and people feel alienated and angry.
  7. So lately, there's been some talk about the SonicTuber community and how some people have stated that they are either making things harder for the Sonic fandom because of how some of them are making videos that are clickbait rather than videos containing confirmed information or how some of them are influencing the Sonic community. So, what do you think about the SonicTuber community? For me personally, there are some good SonicTubers who have really good discussions about the franchise and usually comment on information that's actually been confirmed by SEGA. As for the whole "clickbait" ordeal, that's been a problem on Youtube for years and I will admit that I do get a bit disappointed whenever I see clickbait videos about Sonic News, despite the fact that said news hasn't been confirmed. Whenever that happens, I tend to ignore those videos, unless those news have been confirmed.
  8. So, with the announcement of a new Sonic the Hedgehog game coming out next year, what are some things that SEGA can learn from other gaming companies to become more successful (like, should they do similar gameplay to Nintendo, try to focus on spreading out their other games more often)?
  9. So, ever since the news about Sonic Rangers came out, many fans have been a bit more cautious about whether or not the game would succeed. So, it made me think that is it good that Sonic fans are this cautious about a future Sonic game rather than being completely excited for it? Now, I can understand why many fans are more cautious about the newer Sonic games because for the past decade, Sonic Team hasn't really delivered an outstanding Sonic game (except for Sonic Mania and that was made by a fan developer). But on the other hand, does this mean that fans are more negative towards any new Sonic game being released or are they just lowering their expectations a bit because of how Sonic Team has been handling the games so far? What do you guys think?
  10. So I was wondering, do you think that fans will start up petitions or boycott against SEGA in order to get the franchise in a better direction or at least change some of their mandates regarding certain characters? For my personal experience with petitions, they tend to not be that effective since I'm assuming that most big corporations wouldn't deal with petitions, unless there was a huge number of fans petitioning against them. As for boycotting the franchise, I don't think that fans are willing to go that far with making SEGA change the direction of the series.
  11. So, there's been a lot of talk lately about whether or not the Freedom Fighters from the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comic books should come into the IDW comics. For those of you who don't know who the Freedom Fighters are, they were basically characters who came from the Sonic SATAM cartoon series that came out in the 1990s and they made their way into the Archie Comics in the 1990s. For me on the one hand, I honestly don't mind the IDW comics being in a separate universe and staying much more closely to the games. On the other hand, I grew up watching Sonic SATAM and reading the Archie Comics, so I do miss the Freedom Fighters themselves and maybe there is a way that they could come into the IDW comics without being too in your face with the readers. What do you think? Do you want to see the Freedom Fighters enter the IDW comics or are you okay with the Freedom Fighters not being in the IDW comics?
  12. I'm putting this here as it's doesn't quite fit with art, and it's a mod and not a fan game or a full rom hack or anything big like that. Rather just a link to a release vid for a revamped version of Hyper Sonic for Sonic Generations I have been putting together. It's a reworking of JoeTE's version, and I did get his permission to release it, and I give him credit as well. I made some major changes. He now hovers when idle, has much brighter colors that are more saturated in the shade and he glows white in the bright sun with color aura around him. New stars aura. Major physics changes, all of the original Hyper Sonic moves from S3&K, including a double jump, an area effect attack that kills all the enemies on the screen including ones you normally cannot reach, he can breathe under water, and even fly. I hope you guys like it. https://youtu.be/fQ1sqUjgljs
  13. What are some mandates that SEGA has for the characters or for the stories that you don't agree with or you wish that they changed? While these mandates are mostly related to the IDW comics, here are a few mandates that SEGA did with the characters and stories that I don't agree with: Regarding Shadow's characterization, I don't like the fact that SEGA is basically saying that Shadow should always be edgy and moody and not be allowed to express that many emotions. This also extends somewhat to the other characters, like Sonic where they can't be portrayed beyond their main characterizations in the games. The whole "Chao should be known as "it" instead of calling them "him" or "her." This wouldn't be a problem if SEGA had actually done this in the first place and not just make that rule so recently. It just ended up confusing the fanbase about how the chao should be addressed in the series.
  14. So, while the franchise had its ups and downs over the years, it's great to be a bit positive about the franchise and think about some of the things that you do like about the franchise. So, what do you like about the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise? It can be a specific game you liked, the characters you liked, a gameplay style, anything you liked about the games. Here's what I liked about the franchise: I like the fact that Sonic is a free-spirited character who plays by his own rules, but is still willing the save the world whenever he can. It really separated him from other video game characters and his positive personality was quite an inspiration for the audience. I really liked Sonic and Tails' friendship with each other. Even though in recent years, their friendship isn't quite as elaborated on as it once was, it's great to hear that Sonic practically treats Tails like his little brother and it was this aspect of their relationship that I loved the best. I really enjoyed the Sonic Adventure games. I think that they did a fantastic job at expanding more on the Sonic lore, as well as giving us an open world gameplay style that was quite unique to the franchise at the time. I just love how creative the world is. I mean, what other video game franchise have you seen that features a blue talking hedgehog who goes through all of these wacky zones to grab some Chaos Emeralds? The fact that we get to play as Super Sonic in the final level in most of the games is quite a rewarding experience! This is an aspect of the games that I really miss and I wish that the current games incorporate Super Sonic a bit more, as well as getting the Chaos Emeralds back into the games. I really loved the Chao Garden segments in the Adventure games. Not only are the Chao such cute creatures, but I always loved doing side quests in the games. In the older games, I loved the fact that you were able to play multiple characters and not just Sonic. What I miss so much about the Sonic games is being able to play as Tails, Knuckles, Amy and many other characters.
  15. So, it seems like SEGA is trying to listen to the fans, but they keep getting certain aspects of what the fandom wants a bit mixed up and that has caused problems within the Sonic community. So, how do you think that SEGA can better communicate with the fanbase on what they want out of the franchise? I personally think that SEGA needs to start doing public polls online or something like that and ask the fans exactly what they want out of the franchise, like say they ask the fans if they want the boost gameplay or the regular speed gameplay for later games. And whichever one of these options get the most votes, SEGA should go with that.
  16. I remember how a long time ago, I heard once from another forum I frequent that Sonic 2 was a polarizing game due to introduction of the spindash. I had Sonic 2 when I was a kid but I had no idea that many fans hated the spindash. I never thought much of the mechanic or even how the mechanic supposedly 'breaks' the game, I just never saw it as anything to fret over. What are fair criticisms of the spindash mechanic and it is place in the series?
  17. As you're probably aware, a new Sonic cartoon is premiering in 2022. We don't know much about it at the moment, which leaves lots of room for speculation. I'd love to hear your hopes and expectations! I'll start: Since it's being made by Man Of Action, I expect some, you know, action, but I don't want it to go over the top. I think Sonic's at his best when there's a balance between humour and seriousness; nobody's afraid to goof around and crack a few jokes but there are still stakes. Everyone should have their modern designs albeit with some minor tweaks if needed. I highly doubt there'll be any major redesigns a la Boom. Unpopular opinion alert: I want it to have the current voice cast. Personally I think Boom has some of their greatest work so depending on the tone they would do great. Now put down your pitchforks. I'd like some side characters to appear regularly: Cream, Blaze, the Chaotix, you get the drill. Finally, I have a feeling that Tyson Hesse might be involved. He's worked on a ton of official Sonic media lately including animations. I'd be very surprised if he isn't involved with the cartoon.
  18. Many sonic games (especially the ones from the DS and Wii era,) often get one title, maybe a sequel, and then are pretty much forgotten by all but the hardcore fans. But is there an old sonic game you'd like to see make a return? (Excluding SA3, or Sonic 06 because forum rules) Personally, I'd like to see a new riders game. Probably will not happen but I can dream.
  19. 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?
  20. I personally wanna know everybody's opinion on Blaze the cat,
  21. Hi there these are my IDW Sonic Comics Issues 1-36 and latest. I will be updating this thread when I get the latest Issues thanks for looking https://ibb.co/jbHnGD https://ibb.co/p0fc78y
  22. So, since it seems like SEGA is trying to start a new chapter for the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, what do you think that SEGA needs to do to improve the franchise? For me personally, they definitely need to improve on the writing. The writing for the series has been pretty much a hit or miss and I think that they need to start developing the characters again and not focus too much on the jokes. Another thing they should do is to allow the other characters besides Sonic to be playable characters. It's been awhile since we last played Tails, Knuckles, Amy Rose and many others and I hope that the next Sonic game will have them as playable characters besides Sonic. And the last thing that SEGA should do is having no more gimmicks. That means that if one Sonic game is successful, don't try to repeat the storylines or the line delivering in the following games afterwards. Like for example, when Sonic Colors was a success, SEGA tried to make the other Sonic games that came afterwards have the same tone and dialogue as Sonic Colors. But it didn't quite work out because there were some Sonic games that just didn't have the same type of tone that Sonic Colors had, like Sonic Forces for example. Also, many fans will just be burn out by having the same type of games being shown over and over again throughout the decade.
  23. So lately, especially after the release of "Sonic Forces," the Sonic the Hedgehog games seem to have been on a downward spiral and I wonder if the games will ever get better down the line. Now, there's been a recent shakeup going on over at SEGA with many people being replaced, but will that help the franchise in the long run and what do you think needs to be done to make the games much better in the long run?
  24. So over the years, I've noticed that some of the people from the Sonic fanbase tend to be a bit too vocal when it comes to their dislike of something that happened in the franchise. Sometimes it gets to the point where some of the fans are outright insulting the people working on the franchise, when the people working on the franchise are doing the best they could with what they are working with. So, it makes me wonder just what can be done to satisfy the side of the Sonic fanbase that is rarely happy with the franchise? I think that if SEGA made a lot of good Sonic games, then that would at least satisfy the more critical side of the fanbase. Now, that doesn't mean that everyone will be satisfied, because you can't satisfy everyone, but at least there won't be too much noise regarding the state of the franchise.
  25. 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?
