Sonic Lost World Announced

Recommended Posts

I could see the Deadly Six being intruders themselves, actually. And now they've taken over they're very serious about not letting anyone else dethrone them.

 

EDIT:


If Sonic's goal is to rescue the animals, then as long as the Six are using Eggman's badniks, Sonic's got beef with them.
 
Also, this. Even if they ARE in the right for rebelling against Eggman, I think the fact they're willingly using robots powered by innocent animals kind of makes them assholes in their own right, whether they're truly "evil" or not.

"Your fate is to be destroyed. Why don't you just accept that? Lie down and die!!!" Just with that alone, I highly doubt the Zeti are just "defenders" of Lost Hex. They seem more like conquerors.

 

You don't have to be nice or sound like a  good guy to defend something...

 

Most Bouncers are like that 8p.

Zavok does sound pretty unreasonable. I'm sure Sonic will try  to explain things to him, but he either doesn't care or hes like "I am in control of them now so you can go fuck off."

From what I can tell, this is going to be a preview that shows what happens before the intro of the game. As evidenced by the "Sonic's world now" which has the Tornado chasing Eggman which results in (I guess) the Tornado getting damaged as seen in the Gamescom trailer. I'm really interested in what else happens before Lost World actually starts. And GOD I hope that they don't do the whole turn good from bad thing because that's GETTING REALLY OLD.

I'm with Harlock and Silent on this; the Deadly Six are still pretty much just out-and-out assholes. Assuming Sonic has chased Eggman to their planet, and also that they don't want anyone there even for protection's sake (which I doubt; we've seen no other life on the planet, and they go after the defenseless Small Animals for Pete's sake), it would be dickery of the highest proportions to have gone after Sonic as well after he saved them from the initial aggressor in that cut scene. Seriously, these guys are cunts.

 

There got to me more to this though that what is being led on assholes or not. Its their homeworld they have a right to be pissed if people invade it...good intentions or not.

Well considering that Sonic and Eggman shouldn't be there in the first place...I don't see this being a problem this time. Its not like the Zeti is something Sonic can destroy like a robot....he not going to KILL them...and kicking them off their own homeworld would be pretty bad of Sonic himself.

 

 

 

remember when everyone assumed they were "guardians" of some sort? I guess that sort of turned out true after all

and in an amazing twist, they're actually legitimately evil.

 

Has it been stated by any sources that they are actually evil though? I mean just cause they are cunts doesn't mean their bad per-say...perhaps their just territorial.

Hahaha, I love Cubot and Orbot's meta shot at Sonic Team for using "familiar terrain" for Windy Hill. XD

 

Is it really a meta shot at them, though, considering that they have to get official word from Sega in order to actually use the line in question? It could actually be a carried-over joke from the game.

Why would there have to be more than what we see at face value? Maybe they really are just assholes.

 

Yeah but that doesn't mean they are bad persay. Dogs/Wolves are pretty territorial and can get real mean when people invade their space; good intentions or not. You should know that out of all people. 8p

 

If that's the case then all Dogs are A-Holes by nature XD.

Probably not, no. Although, he did kill the Iblis enemies without hesitation...I guess they weren't exactly sentient though, so I guess there's a big difference there.

You're probably right, but in any case, it read as an affectionate little jab more than anything. But yes, SEGA probably approved it. This story calling itself a "prequel" tells me it's meant to be just that, a prequel that features events not seen in-game. I might be wrong about that, just guessing at this point.

 

Although, if Sonic Team did poke fun at themselves a bit, I'd be more than amused.

I think threatening to kill the person that saved you from enslavement just catapults you into "Asshole" territory. xD

 

And for the record, I call my dog an asshole daily- among many other insults- because he is unnecessarily territorial and aggressive wherever he goes, and he has no sense of manners when it comes to coexisting with other living beings aside from the ones he knows. Doesn't matter that he isn't sapient (the Six are, so they're really assholes in my book); my dog sucks in a few ways, and I let him know constantly.

First we need to know if Lost Hex is just an empty planet as it looks like, there MUST be some reason Eggman went there, some reason other than just turning everything into a robotic distopia. Heck, in Colors it looked like he was just conquering worlds and destroying their natural habitats for the lolz, but in the end he had a plan, use the Wisps as energy for a mind control Cannon. For all we know, the Deadly Six are assholes and extreme because there's something very dangerous and powerful on Lost Hex and they don't want it to fall on the wrong hands... Knuckles tried to kill Sonic a lot of times on Sonic 3 and Knuckles, but he isn't a full time asshole, since he had a very good reason to do so, he wanted to protect the Master Emerald, maybe the Deadly Six have something like that too, something powerful they dont it to fall in the wrong hands.

He enslaved the Deadly Six because of their power, and was going to use it to take over. Really nothing  complicated about this.

 

 

 

I really don't know why people are trying to read more into this than there really is; Lost Hex is the home of the Deadly Six, and they don't want anyone trespassing. And just because Sonic free'd them from Eggman's control doesn't change that. That, or they could be aware of the fact that Sonic is helping Eggman get that conch back to control them and they just don't want to be under Eggman's control again and taking extreme measures in preventing that.

In one part of the comic it has sonic telling eggman to let the animals go and then it shifts into days ago which means eggman must have been at lost hex a while ago before sonic knew where he was taking the animals

Well its not like the Zeti were after Sonic and Tails deliberately in the first place though. Zavok told his brother to attack EGGMAN not everyone who they think didn't belong there.

 

Tails may have been hit on accident, but would give reason for Sonic to be mad at the Zetai including that the robots they control to still have animals inside them.

 

Eggman uses this as an opportunity for Sonic to assist him in getting the Zeti back in control and then Eggy uses them to betray Sonic which is obviously going to happen at some point.

 

Sonic did run off with Eggman...it could all be a misunderstanding. As I said Zavok doesn't seem the reasonable type...instead he rather just get rid of the problem when he sees it. Also, Sonic helping Eggman...the guy that got them in control in the first place doesn't put him in a good light either.

The difference with Colors was that an underhanded plot was implied by the very act of Eggman trying to make amends through creating an amusement park. We know that he doesn't care about atoning to humanity for anything he's done, so the mere act of him doing so implies something insidious is going on. Here, there isn't that kind of subtext. He's going to the planet with the specific intent of using it in some evil manner; whether or not that's taking it over or using a hidden power source is irrelevant. His intentions to do bad are blatant. 

 

Furthermore, he enslaves the Six and actually harms them in the process, so we can assume that the Deadly Six do have a reason to oppose Eggman; however, they have no reason to oppose Sonic like they did, at least not a reason born of benevolence. And this isn't equivalent to Knuckles either; Knuckles has always wisened up when Eggman betrayed him, and in these specific conflicts Knuckles didn't know anyone's alignment at all. Here, the very act of Sonic knocking the shell away proves that the two have an antagonistic relationship with one another, and if Knuckles was in the Six's position in that cutscene he would've never proceeded to attack Sonic as well for rescuing him.

 

Why? Because he's not an asshole. =P

But he quite clearly says "Any intruders of Lost Hex will find the same thing. Trouble".  Implying both that Lost World is their territory and that they'll go after anything that tries to intrude.

when sonic comes to stop them in the cg cutscene, they're terrorising a bunch of little animals for shits and giggles. don't seem all that kind to me

 

Or they were commanded by Eggman to gather up animals for more bots? That scene did happen in Windy Hill.

They maybe dicks, but they still had a good reason. If someone just walked into my door at my house that I didn't know i would get pretty fucking mad.
