The Lara-Su Chronicles and Ken Penders topic - READ PAGE 164, POST 4096

Recommended Posts

In case there's any confusion, Hogfather is not threatening the thread with closure. He has nothing to do with regards to that sort of thing. He's just asking why anyone still cares whenever Pen says something dumb.

I don't really care if people keep this thread up to date with discussion on whatever he considers "canon" to Archie Sonic when he worked on it, because it ends up being at least somewhat relevant to Lara-Su Chronicles, which he has touted as a continuation of the old continuity. Stuff like "Mobians sometimes eat their babies" may well come up in LSC (and it'll probably be as disastrous as I imagine given how much he pushes the "PG13" angle). I don't really keep close tabs on this thread anymore besides making sure stuff is "above the belt," so to speak, and discussion is focusing on his work and actions related to Archie Sonic and LSC, not his personal life. Whatever else he says that's not progress related at this point just gets an eye-roll from me because I've grown indifferent and I'm hardly surprised anymore.

^Having seen some fans getting "ideas" on the Internet before, I wouldn't be that surprised if someone actually would take this a bit too seriously... :unsure:

From what I know of fan art, I'm pretty sure we're well past that point already, canon be damned.

That is, unless his heir takes up the mantle like with Charlie Brown.............

Why would he? I thought he likes (or at least liked) Sonic?

As for the thread, I'll freely admit the thrill is gone. It brought me here so I could follow along with the insanity, and I've happily discovered various other pages and blogs and people through our shared disdain for the man, but at this point, anything he says merits the rough equivalent of Jim Sterling's "Oh, Ubisoft!" stingers.

Unless the man actually produces something of some perceived worth (however small it ends up being, and I don't say that as spite, but I mean I literally don't see there being much market value to it in the end -- where are we on phone case sold, by the way?), I'm fine with closing the window and keeping the sun out and letting him hopefully wither away without the attention that's been sustaining him. I know this thread is only one piece of that, but hey, gotta start somewhere, right?

Dude, if we're dead by the time he gets the first issue done, he probably didn't even finish it because he'll have died long before us.

Yeah, I think that's the resolution with most probability, but then again, I dunno how long any of us will live and how long he lives, soo... that was just stupid wondering, I suppose you got it though...

Urm... because two people have kinda hinted to it, better say something.

It's not my decision if the topic gets killed.

 

My post was more pointing out the following. It's been over 3 years and issue 1 of this comic still isn't out. To give some perspective. Square Enix have remastered Final Fantasy 12 in that time. We might actually get FF7 remake and... oh boy if you can believe this one. Shenmue 3 might actually come out before the first issue of a comic book does. 

Avengers 2 was made for goodness sake!

 

So why is anyone still giving him any attention when all he does lately is post ever more vile and questionable tweets? 

Unless he actually creates and produces some content instead of 'It's coming just wait' why is anyone still giving him any notice?

 Ah sorry, my bad. It's so hard to adress a group of people, like the whole staff in this case, in English since I'm grown up using language having different words for "the lot of you" and "just one you", sorry. 

Attention is given because people tend to want to react when someone says something "interesting", I don't know why but that's how it seems to me at least. And since Penders writes this kind of "interesting" comments, people tend to react to them, it seems. It's not really anything I'd consider as a science since it mostly depends on the mentality person has whether or not said person is interested in skulking around and reading others posts of randomness. I for one find it interesting to see what he's done at all that has anything to do with this "little" project of his. Human mind is anything but analytical, at least in the most cases I've seen. Otherwise we wouldn't see all those painful home video stunts some guys pull off for example...

And that's the reason I dig science things more as a possible job than analysing purely manmade ideals and such (ethics, religions, etc.). Too complicated to get for me...

I read somewhere Sabrina would be introduced into Riverdale later on, I wouldn't be surprised if they used the Chilling Adventures Version.

Given that that iteration of Sabrina is in a bizarre (almost Lovecraftian) perception of the 1960s, I'd wager probably not.

All he does is spending most of the time going to the cinemas and then cherry-picking them, as well as stirring up petty fights and drama, than doing anything productive, and he thinks of himself as a professional in some way

The Republic? That amazing show?

Oh Kenneth, you don't realise you've taken so long to get this off the ground that several places have already done this kind of thing. Though it is nice of Ken to make Tommy Wiseau look like a competent director.

Well, maybe he's trying to make it easier for himself, thinking people might take the film like it should be thought of as all of those movie adaptations that sometimes work but pretty usually end up becoming disappointments due to the fact they get too stuffed or leave too much out or take too much liberties from the original material or...

:D :blink: :blush:

And I know it's not the case, that's just an idea I got after some thinking over this matter.

Oh dear... I actually did it... I actually asked Ken Penders how he feels about the Create-a-Character in Sonic Forces. I am waiting for the consequences for my actions, lol.

My guess: "I dislike that there isn't an echidna option, and that you can't make characters' lips look human."

Edit: Today I learned that the Sonic Stadium forum spellcheck doesn't recognize the word, "echidna".  That is weird.

I just watched this whole thing and I now wish for death.

Egads, could it be? An ACTUAL update of sorts? Not just him rambling about 'progress' and this and that? Well color me hornswoggled!

And what a shock, it's to inform us of how he isn't gonna bother with any of the stuff that happened after he left. Which is totally expected, mind you, but it makes his 'EVERYTHING IS CANON HONEST' claims look even more foolishly conceived given that he was stringent about not reading any of the contributions made after his final run.

So will all the existing Sonic characters just turn into their expies halfway through? Because there's no way in hell that he'd be able to create new content featuring them.

More than likely. He's already established a 'Warlord Kintobor', 'Princess of Acorn' and 'Blue-Spined Erinacidae'. Because you know, he toootally doesn't need the Sonic connection or anything, no-sir.

So, is this meaning he's got again something to delay him making the real deal?

Jeez, this seems more and more something done intentionally... he decided Archie won't steal his delay-record or something, though if TL-SC is "in-progress", is it on delay or not...

Not really. In theory it should actually expedite his work given that he no longer has to account for anything that happened after his final run in the comic. I say 'in theory' because nobody ever really thought he was ever actually going to make any effort on that front given his rather vocal contempt for anything pertaining to his characters not handled by him directly, so frankly nothing would really change regarding his output- or rather, his lack thereof. That he put so much effort into pretending he legitimately gave a crap rather than simply do THIS from the beginning is simply baffling, especially since nobody at all earnestly believed him when he said it.

I can't wait for the "It's only good when I do it" kind of response.

I can't say i'm surprised that he did that, I actually sort of knew he was going to do something like that, i actually remembered him saying on his own forum about not taking an axe to the original continuity and 'somehow' it exists, it really is flabbergasted why he would have claimed that in the first place, making and limiting himself with rash promises when he might not later keep it, or not even sure of keeping?

What is this "Continuity" he spoke of?;)

Sorry to disturb the quietness, but it was pointed out by someone on twiter that KenPender's site is offline, and Ken replying that he is transferring to a new server etc.
