IDW's Sonic the Hedgehog (coming 2018)

Recommended Posts

I still take the idea of the two worlds thing always being a thing with a grain of salt. It was never mentioned or how it’s a thing all this time, and Sonic X was assumed a different thing (and even that alone has major plot holes). I really don’t buy it one bit. They probably just quickly thought of Sonic X when they were asked this and just claimed it was always a thing, and told Flynn to say it was always a thing. Just assuming.

Entirely possible. After all, was Iuzuka really a voice for SEGA before 06? Beyond creating Shadow, I mean.

He's been a voice for SEGA since SA1 came out.

Also Chris is not a game character so don't try to use Sonic X where it doesn't apply.

That is why Sonic X had two worlds, because it was based off the Sonic canon

They sure applied it. Yes it’s not canon to the games, but I meant they quickly thought of Sonic X’s two world concept as a last minute so to not look so dumb that they never thought about it.

 The point was more for DRG suggesting that game Eggman used a portal of a character that wouldn't be there.

But otherwise, Sonic X probably got two worlds from the games, not the other way around.

Wait, so he made Big, Chaos, and the Knuckles Tribe too?

The point was that he probably created similar portal and ended up in Sonic's world.

EDIT: Ninja'd by the recipient. :P

Yes, and the Chao too (he said in an interview he created the chao to attract players who arent used to high speed platforming, and as the player have fun with the chao they can choose to explore the areas and levels and actually progress and have fun with the speed platforming too).

(That's how I got into Sonic in the first place :lol:)

You mean the presence of the other chracters?

The new cover has better pose, better eyes and peaks, and better colors.

No, i mean i don't know what it is, but it is there, and it feels more sonic-y.

Now that's how you add time and variety to a game.

Definitely. If it wasn't for the hours and hours spent raising my Chao I probably wouldn't be as into Sonic stuff as I am now. Would love to see them appear frequently in backgrounds of the IDW comics, I loved how they would cameo in Jon Gray's pencils often. :)

In my childhood me and brothers and sisters and friends were around the computer raising the chao :D

And at the end we were around the computer beating Perfect Chaos B)

And then we got Sonic Riders, Sonic Heroes... But as we grew up they moved on, and me too. But I returned to Sonic this year after discovering the awesome Sonic Boom show, and the announcement of IDW comics.

Guys, remember Archie Preboot? When Mobius was post-apocaliptic Earth, some humans had 4 fingers and were called Overlanders? Yeah, that was kinda stupid.

And what Flynn did? Pretty much didn't talked about it. And everyone was happy.

This is very similar scenario.

Actually, I did like that setting.

That seems rather eh for a variant to be honest. The original cover was fine for the record, but this just seems on the cheap side.

...Wait, the variant is the one that looks least like it's classic Sonic inspired? For the classic Sonic board game?

Please elaborate.

I also kinda liked it. It had this 90 sci-fi flair that I really liked, and it was a pretty fun story, and led to some cool moment (like the discovery of Station Square, or the attack of the Xorda). What I disliked was when they had the horrible idea of linking an ancestor of Robotnik to the end of earth, even if I kinda liked the arc where Shadow and Sonic battles while a program is starting to terraform Mobius or something It was a fun idea, and SA2.5 was maybe one of the best Boller arc (I reallylike that (my memories are a bit fuzzy ). It wasn't perfect but was fun. (tbh I have many things I dislike in the writing of the Pre-Flynn era, but the sci-fi wasn't one of those).

I actually didn’t have a problem with that, believe it or not. It was at the very least consistent with the setting, and ironically tried to do the exact opposite of the Two Worlds by making Mobius and Earth the same planet all along to go along with the games. The whole four fingers and what not I find to be minor to the point it was hardly noticed compared to the terms Overlander and Human, and at that point when Flynn came around it was moot the the point that the two might as well be humans with different cultures or whatnot.

I think the whole thing was more soured by Penders for obvious reasons, although the whole Xorda and aliens thing were still out of nowhere.

Note that I’m not exactly saying these were good, but I will certain praise them for not trying to over complicate the setting even back then. (The stories on the other hand...)

Well, it's part 2 of the Eggman story, so Eggman is likely going to be the star again.

Maybe guest starring team Dark this time? I can't see team Chaotix guest starring for two issues when Tails, Amy and Knuckles get just one on first go.
