I fucked Jim Carrey's wife.
>>240647529Me too bud
I AM THE MYSTERY OF THE WORLD
I'M GONNA SAY THE C WORD!canon
remember Sonic Boom?
>>240648018W-why's he looking at me like that?
I wonder what deep fried hedgehog tastes like haha
>>240648114Spread those cheeks and find out
I HAVE AN ANNOUCEMENT TO MAKE.DONALD TRUMP IS A BITCHASS MOTHERFUCKER AND HE PISSED ON MY FUCKING WIFE. THAT’S RIGHT, HE TOOK HIS ORANGE FUCKING CARROT DICK OUT AND PISSED ON MY FUCKING WIFE AND HE SAID HIS DICK WAS “THIS BIG”. SO I’M MAKING A CALLOUT POST ON MY TWITTER.COM: DONALD TRUMP, YOU GOT A SMALL DICK, IT’S THE SIZE OF THIS CHEETO EXCEPT WAY SMALLER.
I pronounce you husband and wife, you may now kiss the bride
Shadow for president 2020
>>240648719So America then?
>>240648494I'll do way more than that
Is it bad that in not gay but my favorite ship is sontails
>>240649401>Is it bad that im not gayyes
>>240649401>Is it bad that in not gayCompletely and absolutely. Cleanse yourself of your straightness.
Why is Shadamy such a cute ship?
>>240648494This is the happiest day of my life
>live near meM O V I E S
>>240650316does someone in /sthg/ live near you?
>>240648349>“THIS BIG”It's always funny no matter whose voice you imagine
>>240648494She’s crying because she’s in a forced arranged marriage dealing with some creepy disgusting loser. I’d cry too; do more than that actually.
>>240650548I dunno, I'm in Oregon
>>240651172Ya don't blush like that if ya don't like the person
>>240651172Shadow is not creepy or disgusting or a loser
>>240651285We should make another /sthg/ map
>I take everything Amy says with a shaker of saltDamn. Sonic really had no respect for Amy back then (in the comics and the games). Hard to believe they were considered friends.
I wanna draw Tails but I suck at drawing...
>>240651487Reminder that Sonic beats his “girlfriend” Amy and his ho, Tails.
>>240649401Tails is a girl so it's okay.
>>240651568Do it anyway. The only way you'll get better at it is by practicing.
>>240651591>>240651649Alright. What should I draw Tails doing?
>>240651487sonic is a worthless piece of shit and literally no one would miss him if he died
>>240651746Sensually rubbing his Tails together.
>>240651746Draw him flying over Eggman while dropping something heavy on his head, like a cannonball.
>>240651746pleasuring himself to a pic of honey like the nerd he is
>>240651391I want to marry him!
>>240651764Amy would miss Sonic even if he treated her like crap.
>>240651487>technically Amy Rose
>>240651746I don’t know, I’m sorry.
I wish Sonic was a jerkass more often. It seems to irk some people here. And I like that.
>>240651958>He considers Big and Cream more as friends than Amy
>>240651990because I like Sonic and some of his video games
>>240651928she'd handle it better than tails would
>>240651746Tails and cosmo kissing
>>240652145Oh definitely. I wish Sonic were more of a jerk, and Amy were more insane.I wish the characters had character.
>>240652145Sonic is SUPPOSED to be somewhat of a jerk. This has been forgotten over the years because he's been bland as shit for so long.
>>240651958>>240652160who gives a fuck what sonic thinks
>>240652145i like dickbag sonic because he’s basically my inner monologue
>>240652345>who gives a fuck what sonic thinksAmy does.
>>240651172Shame on you. Cream doesn't think anyone is creepy or losers for loving her. If she did she wouldn't be marriage material
>>240652484amy is better when she shits on sonic for being a disappointment like we do
I miss>Sonic being somewhat of a dick>Tails standing up for himself, believing that he can do anything if he doesn't give up>Amy being more open about her crush on Sonic, willing to follow him to the ends of the earth for their love>Knuckles protecting the M.E., a loner, not being a retard but simply slightly gullible since he believes that there's good in everyone>Shadow being smug, firing Sonic's insults right back at him. Sharp-witted, a guy who was cool and fucking knew it
>>240652708Are you talking about the games or the character?Because Sonic as a character rarely ever cares about the complaints others have in regards to himself.
>>240652554You can't romance a 6 year old, anon....
>>240647378Mina Milestone Maybe?
>for marriageBlazeShadowEspioVanilla>for fugRougeSonicHoneyWaveJet>for cuddlesCreamTailsAmyBigKnucklesSilver
>>240653482cream is for all three
>>240652837>>240652861Amy should be trying to be "better" than Sonic, more heroic. She should be modeling herself after the ideal that she thought Sonic was before she actually met him. She should be quick to shit on him for being an asshole, even if it never gets through to him. That's a concept Sonic Adventure set up, the idea that she'll oppose Sonic if it doesn't fit her own personal beliefs. Why is that so fucking hard to understand?
>>240653873shit taste desu. Shadow would be best husband
shadow is sonic's husband
>everyone wants Sonic to be a dickNo. Unless they deserve it.
>>240654269Not a dick, but not an obnoxious goody two shoes either.He's supposed to have attitude, he has none now.
>>240654269So if he’s an asshole to (You), then I’m all for it.
>>240654269Sonic should be a dick to Shadow, and I mean that in a literal sense. His assault on the black rat should be constant and harsh. He should fuck Shadow with his cock is what I'm implying here if you can't tell.
>>240654371His current attitude is firing retorts at others, whether they’re effective or not is a different argument.
>>240654562Damn dude. That's kind of gay.
>>240654371He was never meant to have an attitude. Western marketing bullshit is what caused people to believe he should.
>>240654648it's not gay if Shadow wears Maria's tattered bloodstained dress when Sonic fucks him
>>240654828My bad. Shadow would be best wife.
>>240654660>He was never meant to have an attitudeYou are factually wrong, you don't know shit about Sonic.
>>240655109Not to the degree you seem to want, no.Being good and always doing the right thing is what he was meant to represent.
>>240648494>Whiteso she's still a virgin?Gonna be an awesome honeymoon!
>>240655121What the fuck's Shadow doing with Sonic's daughter
Post your favorite character!
>>240655252That’s the appeal of Sonic to me, even though he’s boastful, cheeky, and arrogant (which tends to be a turn off), he still helps people out and he’s still nice in a way.
SHADOW DONT MAKE ME ____
I wish they had official art of the S3&K Badniks. They do have Eggrobo but that’s about it
>>240656001Do kids love Sonic?
>>240655989you need to get over that game anonit wasnt that good
>>240655825Can I have three?
>>240656061Most likely in the respective worlds.
>>240655912LICK YOUR ASS!
Reminder that’s cream is a good hearted Christian and will not put out until she gets married and also she will only put out when she wants to have a baby and nothing else
I think it's cute how Shadow's the one popping balloons in Forces' Episode Shadow.
>>240656570shh dont tell anyone
>>240656436>Getting to plow the bunny-cunny even just onceWorth it.
>>240656570It is. I wonder if he likes balloons.
>>240656436>will not put out until she gets marriedI'm fine with that. There's more to relationships than sex.>she will only put out when she wants to have a baby and nothing elseI'm fine with that too, though I'm pretty sure no female on the planet has only had sex to have a baby once in their life. I just want to do nice things for her.
>>240656789Cream, STOP! You’re getting too close for your own good.
>>240656778>Trying to get Zelda's upskirt like
>>240655825She's the only reason Dark Chronicles is worth playing.
>>240657015I can already see him going all "Technically I'm kind of a fairy"
Lot of rat lovers in here.
>>240657078I honestly fucking hate Sonic's alt colors in Ultimate. It's so lazy. Who thought it would be a good idea to only change the color of his eyes and rings? They should've added his SA2 soap shoes as alt costume in the least.
>>240657381Lot of same fagging.
>>240657078why does his model and lighting look so much better than >>240656778
>>240657381>inb4 moviesperg brings his autistic ass just to post his waifu
Back from my ban. What did I miss?
>>240657564Nothing. We’re just starved for news.
>>240657384At least he has the white, black and purple ones
>>240657564What silly thing did you do to get banned?
you're in the club when THIShttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iv9esRxJ3Z8starts playinhow do you respond
1) That OP pic is still fake, this is Jim Carrey’s actual haircut for the movie 2) John Malkovich would have been an unironically better choice for Robotnik
>>240657769>eggman isn't going to be baldbut...
>>240657769>What is a bald cap
>>240657674Shitposting off topic.
>>240657714>>240657871I'm gonna knock you the fuck out in a minute
>>240657461Nope, people just like a character. What a fucking surprise.
>>240657953What a stupid looking animal.
>>240657765I never been a club before but I'd quietly enjoy the music.
>>240657765Dance like my life depended on it
>>240657967I posted twice.
Ok guysFront mouth or Side mouth
>>240658178I posted once.
>>240658196whatever the camera angle demands
>>240658253And I posted multiple times so saying "Nope" was already false.
>>240658196How about you properly rig the model to do both depending on the shot you fucking HACKFUCK YOU
>>240657384Not to mention his moveset is also lazy
>>240658343I thought they already did this in Unleashed
>>240658331You would know because you did it yourself (as you already admitted), you basically told on yourself. Don't know why though. Anyway, I legitimately like Sonic, so I just wanted to say mine way legitimate.
Sonic could beat Mario in an all out fight.FACT
>>240658462They promptly undid it during Colors.
>>240658606>You would know because you did it yourself That's why I said same fagging anon.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hucGEhoKjAc/OURGUY/ Sonic barely edging it out
>>240658504Hey Mariobab, how does it feel knowing that there's a Bowsette General but no Mario General?
>>240657950Why so mad anon?
>>240658935Some of those victories would've been losses if it was a walk off stage.
>>240658935I would watch Sonic barely edge one out desu
Post Amy's reaction if Sonic said that he hates her.
>>240659325Haha that's a good joke, Sonic.
>>240659325she'd get mad, go home, furiously masturbate because the emotional response was an overload for her even though it was negative, and then act like nothing happened the next day
>>240659325Sonic's head would be like a watermelon at a Gallagher show with her hammer.
>>240653482Knuckles is for fug are you crazy
>>240659527Huh...this seems the most plausible.
>>240659226why are you here i mean really wh are you here fucki just wnt too understand it id hug you if i could undrstand but FUCK you just keep ILJDXFBM;LKF
>>240659092everywhere's a mario general, sonicbab, we transcended time and space.7+ active nintendo vg boardsbowsette is mario merchandiseentirety of /v/
>>240655825Boom Sonic is the essential Sonic in my opinion. He's pretty much everything Sonic should be about. He's cool, he's fast, he's strong, he believes in himself but doesn't always believe in his friends. He's funny and he quips. He's an adventurer first and foremost and willing to take any challenge and beyond
>>240659686Hush anon don’t need to hide it, I know that you love me
Why doesn't Espio join Team Dark
>>240656789I want to know what those tails feel and smell like
What do you think would make Sonic snap in the game universe?
>>240660686Walking in on Tails using this
>>240658504Where's the Mario Kart thread? I want to play with some people.
>>240660847What does he see?
>>240661018Big bat tits.
>>240660686Losing his friends permanently. He got pretty angry and sad in Lost World, and I imagine he might not have recovered from that had Tails and the rest of his friends been fully robotomized/deceased.
>>240660472Espio should replace Omega
>>240660472Because he has his own team.Oh right he doesn't anymore before Vector kicked his and Charmy's butts out for Silver and Blaze hahahahaha.
>>240660686Watching his friends be tortured or killed
>>240661420It's a shame we still don't really know anything about Espio outside of being a ninja. What's his backstory? How did he become a Chaotix member? How did he become so skilled or why?I mean, WHO the fuck IS Espio?
What are we doing today on this Friday?
Why won't Shadow be Sonic's friend?It's clear that they care about eachother on some level. Is he just tsundere? Will he ever grow out of it?The two would make one powerful team if they actually worked together for once desu.
I made a Hitler parody about /sthg/. Just don't take the video serious. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5C2NEcxQAe4&feature=youtu.be
>>240660472>>240661420Team Dark expansion when? Team Dark stops being considered a Team/Trio, and rather a collective of agents who are sent on recon and espionage missions. (I mean it's literally in the name, for Espio)Charmy injecting threats to paralyze and neutralize them. Cream feeding them information under the facade of just being some little girl playing with her Chao outside. Vector fucks off, he made his bed, he can lay in it when he sold out his buddies to try and fail to win prize money in TSR.
>>240661268Omega, Metal, and Drossel should be Team Clang
>>240661857He is probably too honorable to work for the government
>>240662382Sounds boring as fuck.
>>240661857His entire family was murdered by an unknown mobian at a young age. He trained in order to seek revenge, becoming an assassin for the world's largest crime syndicate. After realizing he would become the very thing he hated, he abandoned the title. He later joined the Chaotix, and with Vector's & Charmy's detective help, hopes to find resolution to his lifelong case.
>>240662193Which movie should I go see? Is Spiderverse alright? I heard there is at least one cute girl in it
>>240663032welcome to the Sonic franchise after 2011
Honestly a perfect mix of Sonic boom's show and game would have been some amazing storytelling. Boom had the best atmosphere by far. Dust everywhere with grungy characters with tape and action look like they travel through dangerous temples ready for all battles
>>240663138Spider-Verse is pretty good, and Peni is indeed very cute.
Maybe the sonic movie will do so bad that she will actually try to make a good sonic game and make the game have a high budget like what sega did with unleashed after what happened with 06
>>240663138Whatever you choose, I hope you have fun.>>240663201Nah, I'm pretty sure people here don't do much regardless of the state of the franchise. You guys tend to be boring.
>>240662193Drinking and playing Smash bros.
>>240663205Boom is how Sonic honestly should be. It's adventurous, utilizes all characters and fits Sonic. The only thing it was lacking was good gameplay.
>>240663347Sega* not sheDucking auto correct
>You guys tend to be boring.Yeah because you're so fun
make me laugh
>>240663547WOW anon, you must be real fun at parties.
>>240663547Just respond to me normally, you fucking loser.Anyway, I'm pretty boring myself but I at least try to find something to do.
>>240663645I don't come to /sthg/ to party.I'm here to talk about SONIC THE HEDGEHOG VIDEO GAMES.
Sonic Adventure 3
>>240663594There are people unironically defending boom
>>240662410/sthg/ used to be great. What happened?
>>240664098/sthg/ was never great.there has to be a word for when people think everything that happened in the past was always better. what is the name of that syndrome
>>240663467This makes my heart hurt
>>240664225Rose tinted glasses, presumably.Though /sthg/ was at least more enjoyable in the past.
>>240664225What the other anons said.
/sthg/ was never good.
I love you, /sthg/!
>>240664225/sthg/ was absolutely better before the anniversary party.
>>240664225I like /sthg/ more now than before. Everyone has kind of accepted the state the series is in.
>>240664479I love you too.
>>240664295nah nostalgia is when you genuinely liked things in the past. i've been in generals since 2014 and they had just as much shitposting as now.>>240664307>Rose tinted glasses, presumably.that sounds more accurate
>>240664553>and they had just as much shitposting as now.My guess is that they like the current shitposts less.
Whisper has never seen a penis.
>>240664553Do other generals be more fun and/or involved with things? Are they "objectively good series"?
>>240664715I blame the flood of shitty Wojak edits that infested the site, it killed creativity.
>>240664536I haven't been on /sthg/ long enough to make any judgment, but I know 4chan as a whole has definitely gotten far more tame than before. Every year more redditors/normies dilute the userbase, and old 4ch users subsequently leave.
>>240664743She did when Shadow raped her.
>>240664743aside from her own that is
>>240664398MY HEAD'S SPINNING
>>240664813So where do they go? Do they just lurk on the internet since they have nowhere else to go?
I only came here last week. I was fed up of not being able to talk about furry boys on /v/
Kudos to the only Sonic Character to not suddenly become Sonic's friend after a confrontation
>>240664123What if tails pooped on sonic haha
in this momenther thoughts?
>>240664850I can believe Tangle a trap, but not Whispy the wifey
>>240665074Let my screw my gun in peace
Old /sthg/ wasn't the best, but it's certainly much better than it is now.Sometimes I ask a genuine question, and I'll get shitpost responses or completely ignored. It's why I've kinda given up attempting to create any quality discussion here.
>>240665049But they join forces, unlike Metal, Metal is better
>>240665257Metal is the best.
In all honesty what do you want from old /sthg/? Since old /sthg/ had a lot of its own problems too and honestly far far worse shitposting than now.
>>240665249What kind of questions?
>>240665001I love them too and it's cool that you found a place where you can do it but I'd suggest being careful not to overdo it.If you tick enough people off they might report you and you might end up having your posts deleted or getting yourself banned here as well.
>>240665249>Sometimes I ask a genuine question>"Hey guys why is S3&K the best game?"
>>240660083Boom Sonic was bitter and apathetic more than anything
Why is Shadow so hated? It is the gameplay he had in Heroes.
>>240665074>What a nice ass. Toned, but still slightly plump. Wonder what he'd think if I slapped it.
>>240659325"See you tomorrow"
Let's talk about why Mania is really good.
>>240665719It has horrible boss battles.
>>240665350I want the drawfags back desu, I miss the funny little comics and doodles.
>>240665450I'm always getting banned anyway, usually once a day. I'm quite notorious. But I respect your little community here and I wouldn't want to spoil it.
>>240665371Well, prompts, kindaLike the other day I asked "If you could go to Sonic's world and hang out with 5 characters, who would they be and what would you do?"That got some responses, which made me happy.Maybe my questions are boring most of the time? Could that be the reason?
Did you see how bad and boring the New Super Mario bros U deluxe was? I'm worried that if Sonic stays in 2d or classic that the same thing will happen to Sonic that has happened to Mario.
>>240665803If they came back do you really think they wouldn't be driven away again?
Fuck I love how Sonic Mania Adventures 6 has canonized Classic Amy's presence. She will never go away. She's the only female Sonic character worth a shit.
>>240665947Of course, as is the problem with nu-/sthg/
>>240665810I appreciate that anon.Try not to go overboard, mods are pretty strict when it comes to furshit, even here.
>>240665895It was just a port, I don't see the issue.
>>240665845Oh I notice those. They usually take some time/thought (i.e: effort). I think they're fine but they could remind people of like those conversation maker prompts you see for like friendships or dating and some might think that's corny or forced or whatever.
>>240665895%80 on metacritic#2 Best Switch Game of 2019#1 Most Discussed Switch Game of 2019
>>240665947Classic Amy was in CD. Why wouldn't she be canon to Classic Sonic's dimension?
>>240665895>bad and boringYou have to elaborate. Is it something normies/casuals/critics would find bad and boring? Like something legitimately underwhelming for all parties? Or is it only bad and boring to longtime Mario fans, /v/, spergs like us who obsess over video games, etc.? Because they and us have very different definitions of bad/boring, see Sonic 4.
>>240666150because she wasn't in fuckin s3&k so she doesn't count
>>240666232idk Episode II was pretty boring/underwhelming, even to critics.
>>240665895as a game, New Super Mario bros U deluxe is perfectly fine, but as a Mario game it's fucking infuriating how banal it is
>>240665994Honestly the drawfags should stand their ground and not leave from shitposts.
I expect Classic to become stagnant due to SEGAs meddling. This is why I think the Mania team just should have been given Modern Sonic.
>>240666451I wonder what Richard Jacques does most of the time, he isn't used very often.
>>240666607Do you know how it feels, anon?
>>240666232It's still the same new super mario bros game. Even normies are getting annoyed at Nintendo by realising the same game for full price.
>>240666119I just wanna start some conversation. Not sure how else to do it...people don't seem interested in talking about the things I want to talk about.
>>240666819Probably not entirely because I am not a drawfag myself, but to be hated upon by a community? Yeah.
>>240666743That is what I'm saying. Classic Sonic will be like New Super Mario Bros.
>>240666824Looks like I'm buying Yoshi's crafted world instead then.
>>240666816He’s freelance. He does whatever, whenever for a whole bunch of companies, videogames or not.
>>240666984That's the best case scenario, I think it is more likely to become Mega Man.
>>240666819It feels like absolute shit.Imagine putting hours of work into something for a community, and then receiving almost nothing but ungratefulness and hostility for it.
>>240667085Good for him, always wanted more stuff from him.Well, not the Boom stuff he did, though.
>>240666905I get you.>>240666958It's kind of like that. I don't draw and I don't expect people to do asskissing or anything but it's nice to feel engaged and get others' engagement from others. >>240667236Yeah I bet. Especially if people think you're causing the problem or using you to start things up. It gets discouraging.
>>240667236Try to make your art for more than one community so it isn't a waste if /sthg/ doesn't like it.Offer requests/cheap commissions here.Just don't stop posting art because some people are angry about it.
>>240667236I'd say "just ignore shitposters" but obviously negative responses hit hard than positive ones so it's understandable that people just went "fuck this" and peaced out.Truly a shame.
>>240667236I've never seen any of the ungratefulness or hostility when drawfags post, unless it was Kayla/AAR or something. AAR only gets hate because people disliked the human mobians.
>>240667445They do do that/end up going to other communities instead because they feel better off there. I think I saw some people on other websites.
>>240666984And it will take even less time for Classic Sonic than NSMB because we have to deal with rehashed levels and a fear of innovating too much and alienating the Classic purists. At least NSMB could be great if Nintendo tried. No one's going to cry if they add some extra characters, a bunch of new power ups, extra abilities, etc. If you add too much to Mania, it's not a pure Classic Sonic experience anymore. It's not nostalgic. It's pointless. Classic Sonic is destined for stagnation and it fucking hurts. Mania was so good and I just know they're going to run the sequels into the ground and do absolutely nothing with this series
If Luigi is trans and is a sidekick. Does that make Tails trans as well?
>>240667738That's what happened to Mega Man.
>>240667738Taxman already achieved his dream of making an official Classic Sonic title. I hope he stays true to his word and actually explores 3D.
>>240667492There's only so much. Like once it gets out of control, that's when they leave.>>240667521I know for sure those are especially but I thought I seen some for other ones, not to the same degree but if they see those getting pissed on, they don't want the same treatment so they leave quickly.
>>240667738Mania is already being milked. At least people would what Sonic back to 3d and more serious story's in the future.
>>240667343Not Boomfag, but Jacque's stuff for RoL and SC were actually pretty good for atmosphere and the songs in Fire & Ice are catchy.
>>240665010Thanks, I might take a look at the IDW issues after those recent preview pages.
>>240667901no nobody else ever got shat on. they left because of the shitposting in general, not because people were shitposting about them.
>>240667738What will the impact of Mania being milked be?People already are saying stagnation is good.
>>240666318neither was metal sonic
>>240666148Bruh it's 11 days into 2019 and that's like the only release so far
>>240668245the only good sonic characters were either in s3&k or want sonic dead
Why do people hate on Boom So Much? It Was My Entry For Sonic And I thought the Fans Grew Out of Shitting On Everyone for liking Different ThingsI Know Its Flawed But Its Still One of the Better 3D Sonics. Its Better than forces and 06 At Least
>>240667445I haven't become a shitposting target yet but as soon as shitposters see something they can use against you, they will.Gives me anxiety mate. like fuck
>>240668203jadii gets brought up and shat on whenever people start talking about silver or blaze
>>240668761why are you typing like you're 12 years old
>>240668820I feel bad for her.
>>240668820that's because of her beliefs not her arttheyre also just messing around
>>240668761>Boom>It Was My Entry For SonicOh the poor actual souls who get into Sonic because of Boom.
>>240668761Boom may have been better than forces but it wasn't better than 06
>>240668782If you aren't being a jerk then eventually people will just stop.If /sthg/ dies because of an artist posting their art there, then that says more about the state of the community than the artist.
>>240668761>continues to defend boom
>>240651787>>240651649>>240651591>>240651568I finished :3
>>240669331How is Forces worse than 06?
>>240651487post the next page
>>240669427You did it! Congrats anon.
>>24066946006 actually tried. it tried and failed but it fucking tried
>>240668235Honestly, I don't think that much will actually happen. Critics and normies who don't indulge in Sonic constantly like we do will never get tired of Mania sequels. The sales for next games won't be nearly as high as Mania's because they won't have that massive hype of being the first Classic Sonic game in 23 years, "Sonic is finally good oh my goddddd" eceleb/critic/etc. reviews, and so on. Sperglords like us might get bored and stop after one or two sequels if enough doesn't change. We aren't the majority though so the lost sales won't matter. With good reception and stable sales, there won't be a reason to improve or change this series.
>>240668761I know you are shitposting but I did like the cartoon.
>>240669857Also Mania sequels will be cheap to make.Sonic will definitely fall out of relevancy like Pac-Man, Rayman, and Mega Man.
Why does this random crackship have so much quality content?Why am I starting to like it?
>>240669987no you don't understand. Rayman is totally alive. Rayman 4 is definitely coming. you'll see. you'll all see
>>240668820She did nothing wrong desu
>>240669331I'd happily take Forces over Boom.
>>240669978The cartoon was good. Wish it got a season 3.
>>240670086Because Tikal had a major role in just one game, while Shadow should've just been in Adventure 2. That's a nice style for a western artist.
>>240670418You sure about that?
>>240670086Now you've got me thinking. Would this ship even work or would Shadow's violent nature be too much for Tikal?
>>240670946She's fucking dead my dude
>>240671014Most of Shadow's love interests are dead, your point?
>>240671014If she was alive.
>>240671158Bit fuckin rude mate
>>240671158what the frick sonic would never say this
>>240670946You see anon it's really Maria x Tikal with Shadow being a vessel for love rather than a weapon of mass destruction
>>240660472Because Team Dark are actually cool, Espio's a tryhard like Vector.
>>240671289Are you saying that Shadow's the Ultimate Lover?
>>240671489>Shadow the Ultimate Shadow confirmed as new dlc character for Smash bros.
>>240671292>team formed by a broad>cool
>>240671485How the fuck is forces better than boom?
>>240672368It actually works on a technical level and the stages are fast and repayable with no forced stops and plenty of incentive for collectibles.
Thoughts on DS version?
>>240672363Only the best plant girl a fox can ask for

>>240672908It didn't lie to me>>240672921>Another case of good taste, poor deliveryHurts every time
>>240672908I liked that the side characters got to interact with one another.
I feel different as a Sonic fan on 4chan when I go to Twitter and Reddit. I go on Twitter lurking as I don't have a Twitter account and the Sonic fans on Twitter are much different than /sthg/. Why is that?
>>240673092Why does Silver sound so sexually frustrated when yelling here?
>>240669503What the fuck
>>240673092This was the only good thing to come out of 06
>>240672908I never played it.
>>240673235What about Blaze being insecure about her (male) flat chest?
>>240672908Basically the true/full version of the game, even if the "3D" isn't present.
>>240673342I thought that was removed pretty early on.
>>240673478Still came out of 06
>>240672908Why was it so different?
>>240673208Because Silver is gay and what's to be Shadow boyfriend.
>>240673143It's the overall culture of the website in question leaking into the users using it. Their overall cultures have their ups and downs, but largely are incompatible with genuine 4chan culture.
>>240673208Because Capella did a smashing job of hamming it up.
>>240673793I check the main Sonic Twitter page and r/sonic the hedgehog and I feel like I don't belong there. 4chan has fucked me up.
>>240674064This unironicallyI have trouble talking about Sonic on anywhere but anonymous imageboards now
>>240665350>In all honesty what do you want from old /sthg/?The anons, the drawfags, the quality that encouraged visits by the comic staff...>honestly far far worse shitposting than now.I'm genuinely curious how you came to this conclusion.
Does Tails have healthy gums?
>>240674268drawfag dramacomic drama
>>240673923That sounds hot.
>>240674467>Silver is into BDSM
>>240674292No, and I have to take the blame. I've spoiled him with my "milk and honey".(It's not like I'm faring too much better, either. He sometimes offers me his "pineapple fizz"... Whatever that may mean. I still accept it "simply to be nice".)
>>240674573Silver is from the progressive future so he's probably a huge degenerate.
>>240674467Why does Shadow always beat up the new male characters? He beat up Silver, he beat up Infinite.
>>240674741To establish dominance.
>>240674573He's got psychic powers, so it makes perfect sense, you don't even need physical restraints.
>>240674741Hedgehogs are territorial creatures.
>>240674741He fucked up Lyric and Mephiles too.
>>240674573Silver's ESP is basically instant restraints if you think about it, but fluffy hog's probably too pure and naive to think to put them to use like that.>>240674779>didn't beat up BlazeSeems like the fiery kitty's been top dog all along.
>>240674292Didn't I post this yesterday?
>>240675018They've never met
>A FUCKING LEAF
>>240675096They did during Generations, but sure. Let's pretend Shadow never met Buddy either.
>>240675170Not only that, but he's also a flaming pothead.

Why don't male sonic characters wear clothes? Why do they have no penises?

>>240675373You were asking how shitposting was worse in the past.
>>240677496>Why do they have no penises?Because they're girls. The "girls" all sheathe their dicks within clothing.
>>240677496No male Sonic characters have genitalia.Except for Blaze.
If the comic staff wasn’t driven away by shitposting, would they have stayed to listen to the complaints about IDW?
I can't keep up with Sonic threads on /v/ and here. What do I do?
>>240677496The fur hides them good, but only when they're flacid
>>240678323Stop browsing /sthg/
>>240678323Also the Sonic adventure 3 thread is calling /sthg/ a mess and full shitposting. We are not that bad.
While I do think drama/shitposting played a large role, you people forget that many artists have lives and won't spend all their time making art solely for a niche part of the fandom. They either need money, lose interest, or need to work on something more fulfilling.The issue is as much to do with drawfags leaving as new ones not coming in.
Now that all the levels in Heroes is getting an Adventure DX mod, I sure hope the levels in Shadow the Hedgehog and 06 is getting a mods to

Whatever happened to the Shadow Androids anyways? They'd probably be more redeemable than Metal Sonic could ever be.
>>240679234One, just ONE instance of talking with Metal ever working.No, OVA doesn't count they had to make him emotionally connected with Sonic for some reason and even that was after frying his brain.
>>240680030Are you referencing to them autistic YouTube videos.
>>240680161Metal could be a good boy, but Sonic Team won't let him.

>>240680648I didn't actually mean it. I love the Adventure games.
>>240678618That’s fair. Some people have that perspective of what a “real” drawfag should be, which those who casually draw just don’t bother doing things for the thread and I thought I remember some people saying that they’re (new ones) worried about the shitposting.

I'm from the future, came back to tell you about Sonic Forces and to make tons of cash on the stock market and some other shit but that's not important.>Gameplay styles are Modern, Classic, and Wisps>Yes they're going to consider power ups a full gameplay style>Modern is what you'd expect, about 30% on rails with the camera behind Sonic and about 70% with the camera from the side, both with boost of course>Classic still slows down if you curl into a ball while on a slop, that should tell you enough>Wisps are just the Lost World power ups>Only the first zone is all fire, apocalypse, Eggman won, etc everything after that is happy fun time young children cartoon with you reversing Eggman's victory after the first zone and bringing peace and shit>There are only three bosses though you fight them more than three times>First is those yellow mass produced Death Egg Robos but you fight them as Classic Sonic, so camera is from the side>Second is those yellow mass produced Death Egg Robos but you fight them as Modern Sonic, so camera is behind Sonic>Third is the actual Death Egg Robo, red paint mustache and all, it's the exact same as the other two except every time you get a hit in you change which Sonic you control thus your camera angle on the fight, then at the end there's a "cutscene" where the wisp come in, all band together, and you hit a single button to do the final hit which you can't mess or fuck up, if you don't press anything at all it'll still do it automatically after about 30 seconds>Classic Sonic speaks at the end but it's just to call Eggman "Baldy McNosehair", those are the only two words he says>And he's voiced by Modern Sonic's voice actor, doesn't even do anything to make himself sound different and no effect is put on his voice at all>Also Classic Sonic is the only Classic character to appear, not even Classic Tails is showing up this time
>>240681850I have the same anatomy problem.
>>240682131No, I don't. Read the books when I was young, though.
>>240675369Why does Knuckles sound like he's drinking out of cups
>>240677834The past being 2014-2016
>>240683250After looking through the previous threads, I always notice shitposting but I notice it got much worse after two key events the cancellation of Archie and the disaster of Sonic Forces.
>>240683469You actually read through the previous threads?>a historianWhat did you learn?
New Bumblekastshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XrZRkeekdQhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVaoSvK2YpsSonic Q&A:Q:I know I brought up Sonic Underground before but can we expect an IDW version of Aleena the Hedgehog to appear in the new comics.>Not likely. Sega of Japan does not like acknowledging old spinoff material. Archie was odd in that because of an old contract with Sega a lot of things were allowed to slip in under the radar. IDW is developing a new relationship with Sega is too young to be that liberal yet, if at all.Q:We all know Ian loves to work lyrics from Sonic theme songs into IDW, and I was wondering, if Whisper and Tangle had theme songs what would they sound like?>Tangle's would be obnoxiously upbeat ska, something to have you bouncing off the walls. Whisper's would be close to "Calling To The Night" from MGS.Q:Do you have stuff like game timelines, general lore, and world maps planned out for IDW Sonic? If so for the timeline part, how much does it differ from post-SGW Archie? Are there any games left out? Are any of them in a different order than before?>Ian is approaching IDW Sonic differently from Archie. Less lore and plot heavy, and more adventure-to-adventure. Sega keeps a closer eye now and he has less latitude to make things up. He's tried to hammer out a world map for years but the maps depicted in the games are too inconsistent to make a reliable one. The timeline is more fluid now thanks to the Classic/Modern split. You can consider the modern games happening in order of their release and the events therein not being exactly 1:1.
>>240684481Q:Curious to know which of the Supposed "Mandates" by Sega you actually intend to obey, since you've broken every single one you've mentioned in the past. You'd think SEGA would be pretty pissed at you adding characters to the lore who don't exist, as per their so-called "mandate"?>Mandates are not hard and fast rules. They existed before Ian came on and he's ran into more because he wrote more. Cream and Omega could not be used for a time but then they could. "Sonic can't cry" was a reaction to the way he was being depicted pre-Ian but since then they were able to convince Sega to allow him to express different emotions. Doesn't know what questioner means by "adding characters to the lore who don't exist" mandate. It can also depend on who is doing the approving, with SoA being more lax and SoJ being more attentive and the time period. Everything goes through Sega so anything that is in the book is approved by them. What is approved can change book to book.Q:I was sorry to hear you're not allowed to use TV show characters like Sally and Naugus in the IDW series But I was wondering: Would it be possible for those characters to appear in a different comic that takes place in a separate continuity from the main IDW series?>Ian did not say that, just that Sega is not keen on them being reused. They would be a hard sell but not entirely impossible. For a side comic for old material to exist would require Sega's approval and a sizeable audience to demand and sustain it. Encourages people to get together and petition for it.Q:What are your initial thoughts on Sonic's design for the live-action movie?>*cough* *hack* *cough* ugh, bleh, why, WHY?! Ian wrote an article for the Escapist where he shows his thoughts about it. Concedes that this will likely be some people's first exposure to Sonic and they might like it and it might take off. Liked Detective Pikachu's depiction of Pokemon since they stay more true to the original designs. Going to still see it.
>>240684481>Ian is approaching IDW Sonic differently from Archie. Less lore and plot heavy, and more adventure-to-adventure.
Tails for smash
Why did they have to give Tails Dummy Rings in 06? He literally has the worst attack.
>>240684481>calling to the night from MGShttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXkgn3QUA2wGerald..., the future we saw was one and the same. The biolizard will die, and another threat will take his place. Your creation, La forme de vie ultime, will be sent to Earth.Your hedgehog will threaten mankind... that hedgehog... will save the world.WHISPEERRRRRRRRR
>>240684670Q:if you could would you try and add dinosaurs or any kind of prehistoric animals in sonic IDW?>Ian has had dinosaur characters in his back pocket since Archie. Hasn't pitched them yet but has ideas for down the line. Has to worry if they would add something to the setting.Q:my question is to know if you and the rest of the team like the idea to make more characters inspired by the ones from the Archie series. Like Starline?>Starline wasn't intentionally made to be a successor of characters like Finitevus and Zachary, just probably inspired by them in that Ian likes suave manipulators with a slight technological edge. Is not planning to do straight up expies of old characters. Starline was more inspired by a game element, which has been altered and revised to the point it's no longer recognizable. He was intended to debut with two other characters which would have made the inspiration more obvious to fans but they were pushed back due to Year 2 plans.Q:Were you satisfied with the lineup of the Eggy Six? (from Sonic Forces)>Liked them in that they were a nod to previous villains, but wished they were used more. Didn't like how Chaos went down in one hit from Classic or that Zavok was the only real boss fight. Thought Metal Sonic being an illusion instead the real one was a neat idea.Reminder that you can send questions to Ian by email, Twitter directly or with their bumblekast hashtag, on the YouTube video, or get priority on their Patreon.
>>240684816I wonder what Tails's dummy rings taste like
>>240684481>He's tried to hammer out a world map for years but the maps depicted in the games are too inconsistent to make a reliable one.I don't know why this is funny to me, but it is.
>>240684670>Sega is not keen on them being reused>It will be a hard sell, but not entirely impossibleWell, damn. I'm probably going to give up hope, and who knows, I might be pleasantly surprised in 5 years or so.But let's be real, she's probably gone.See ya Space Chipmunk.You're going to carry that weight.
>>240685038Because he's only been looking at human world maps while trying to make a map for Sonic's world?
>>240685103I'm sorry for your loss.
>>240684816That seems like a multiplayer thing
>>240684481>>Ian is approaching IDW Sonic differently from Archie. Less lore and plot heavy, and more adventure-to-adventure. Okay. So the whole "were not doing any worldbuilidng year 1 because we want to get into the action thing" is forever, not just Year 1. Plots and lore are dead in the Modern Sonic games. They're probably dead in Classic Sonic too. Mania Adventures, if it becomes a full series, won't have anything either that's for sure. And the comics will barely have them either. You have all this crazy stuff in the games and all these characters and no one's going to actually do anything beside have Sonic jump on robots in Green Hill Zone and occasionally the Nega Wisp and Metal Sonic. Why. I can understand not putting stories in the games but this is a comic book. Books need stories and actual substance since they don't have gameplay
>>240685265No you idiot.
>>240685673Damn, alright then.
>>240685582>So the whole "were not doing any worldbuilidng year 1 because we want to get into the action thing" is foreverNot necessarily, just for now. Like he said things can change and Sega can lighten up.
>>240684481The only reason Archie lasted so long was because people were invested in the world and lore. Hence why people were READING Sonic.If we wanted to purely just jump into the action, we'd just play the games. Which we do, obviously, the point is that the comics were supplementary and could expand the characters, world and lore than is barely introduced in the games.Kinda disappointing...
>>240685582Sonic '06 had lore and it was a bad game so they scrapped lore.
>>240685582Didn’t people say that he tends to overdo the storyline?
>>240685582The comics have to be like the games now.So you really can't be surprised.
>>240685792but Sega is never going to lighten up. As soon as the movie drops and makes Sonic into an even bigger joke, they'll try to "clean up his image" and lock everything down even more than it already is. Or they'll go full retard. Classic Sonic can only be cool and untouchable and nothing else, not even cute. Modern Sonic always has to be a meme, tryhard cool, and nothing else. The comic doesn't fit in with that and never will>>240685886They kind of had lore in Mania with the Master Emerald existing, the Phantom Ruby being located, etc. >>240685887Overdoing it and failing might honestly be better than not even trying. At least when you fail, you can get feedback and improve. When you don't even try, you never learn anything and become complacent.
I'd like to marry Whisper please and thank you.
>>240686726that would change the status quo too much so it's not allowed
>>240686595Having Macguffins isn't lore...they explain nothing. They dont make the world richer or more mysterious.
>>240686861but the Phantom Ruby is literally what causes you to go to the rehashed levels. It's not just a macguffin, it actually does something and has importance
>>240687161That's a ham fisted excuse to recycly content, nothing important happens as a result of ypu returning to these locations.Sonic is a joke now, it's always going to be a joke.
>>240687161And what are the odds Sega / ST are going to build around the ruby in the same way they did for echidnas and the emeralds? I'm going with none
>>240686595>but Sega is never going to lighten up.I'm surprised people didn't learn this lesson with the Mighty and Chaotix fiasco. Some fans waited years for SEGA to lighten up on their policy to separate them and reunite them ala Knuckles Chaotix again because they didn't the Chaotix was whole without Mighty. Then ten years later SEGA force Ian to kick Mighty off the team in the reboot, although they still knew each other. Then five years after that they finally bring Mighty back to the games but in such a way that Mighty and the Chaotix don't even exist in the same dimension so don't know each other at all. Easing up is not their typical MO.
>>240687161>It's not just a macguffin, it does exactly something a macguffin would do
hey can you guys stop reminding me of how much i hate SEGAthank
Look at Tails!
>>240687568I suppose. I didn't think of that. I was only thinking about what was happening in the game as it was happening but you're right. In the grand scheme of things nothing about the rehashed levels means anything>Sonic is a joke now, it's always going to be a joke.but it doesn't have to be. It wasn't in the early 90s, early 2000s, and 2011. Then it came so close in 2008 and 2017 before Forces came out. Maybe things will get better one daymaybe
>>240688063This is the guture you chose.Cut your losses.
>>240688149>things will get better one day
>>240688293I BELIEVE IN MY FUTURE
>>240688149It won't. Even if it aseem like it will it won't last.Quality is an irregularity, not the norm.
>>240688106Not now anon...

>>240688903Yes I am sad.
>>240689275Everything is canon and not canon at the same time because uh.
>>240689397because SEGA would have to aknowledge the lore and everyone knows they start burning at the skin anytime thats brought up
>>240689397>Forces>doing ANYTHING interesting>executung ANY idea wellHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>240689397shadow's not allowed to feel emotion in nusonicno humans allowed in nusonicclever things aren't allowed in nusonic
>>240689397It would be pointless from a narrative structure. Shadow has already moved on from Maria and all associated emotional trauma as of the true ending of Shadow the Hedgehog. Having Shadow be distracted or saddened by the presence of Maria would be a greater character decay than anything that's happened to Tails.
>>240689928but he talked about maria in the lego game and the lego game is the best sonic game ever made because it has unautomated loops and sick references
>>240689275You just explained it. Classic Sonic is both from the past and an alternate dimension. Specifically, he resides in an alternate dimension that heavily resembles, but is not entirely the same as, Modern Sonic's past. Everyone is younger than their Modern counterparts, they look different, and certain characters are or are not present (Classic Sonic and friends know Mighty and Ray while Modern Sonic and friends don't).
>>240690149this is so fucking stupid
>>240689928He may have moved on and accepted that he can't change the past, but that doesn't mean that Maria doesn't still hold a special place in his heart or his mind. Having Shadow get distracted, saddened or angered by a Maria illusion would be perfectly in character.
You guys think too much
>>240690327you mean not enough
if they didn't want people to care about lore, they shouldn't have introduced it in Sonic 3
I smell a Forces apologist afoot...
Sonally is cute and all but man was it forced in the comics. To be honest, the moments Sonic and Amy had in the post-reboot felt more natural, despite it not being romantic. Granted, Sonic and Sally had good chemistry in SatAm.
>>240690073This but unironically
>>240690668Someone should edit Iizuka's face in that red mess
>>240690738well sally is pretty much dead now
>>240690958deepest lore, literally
No matter how much the post-reboot Archie comics are ignored, rebootfags can take comfort in that it wasn't literally erased from existence like the pre-reboot.
>>240690738Sally isn't a Sonic character. Never was, never will be.
Do you guys know if there are any Shadow figures in amiibo size and quality?
>>240691616No, not that I know of.
>>240689578That's a lot of chilli sauce...
>>240692210goddamn it why do all of Tomy's Tails figures look like he's wearing a diaper
What were they thinking
>>240691616There's these but I don't know what they're called
how do you mess up this badly
fellas, why's robotnik the best sonic character?
>>240692892This is the sole purpose why I only get jazwares figures, no matter how crazy expensive they are
>>240683851The threads used to be heavy with comic discussion. There was a heavy amount of hetero shipping. People speculated about the ways the upcoming content would be terrible.
>>240683469Imagine how much worse this place will be after the movie!Aren't you fucking excited!?
>>240693354That was probably because the Sonic /co/ general was forced to merge here. Classic vs Modern posting overrode the comic discussion, especially considering Maina(Classic) and Forces(Modern) were just released.
What's the sonic figure on the left side
>>240693731>That was probably because the Sonic /co/ general was forced to merge here.What the fuck are you talking about
>>240693868What is this sissyhog meme? Is it just one guy who keeps posting it?
Since the stories of IDW are self-contained why are they so unsatisfying? Is it because of horrible pacing?
>>240694262>Is it just one guy who keeps posting it?Yes, best you could do is ignore him.
>>240694262Is it even a meme
>>240694262I kept seeing it spammed on /v/ a few months back. I think it's just one guy shilling his sissyhog fanfics and now he's decided to start shilling here too.
>>240691424Well, as we all know, being a sonic character is such a high prestige.Thank god Charmy, The Deadly Six, Infinite are held in such high regard. Sally's shit arc in Reboot about wanting to become a better leader despite being kinda crap at it pales, fucking PALES in comparison to the backstory that is Infinite.Hell, it's Shakespearean once you compare them."I just want to be there for my friends, but I'm not that great, and I keep failing but I have to hold it together, because if 'I' fail the whole team fails, but at least I have my friends here to let me know it's a team effort and that we're all looking out for each other!"Compared, of course, to the high literature of:"I AM NOT WEAAAAK. HE CALLED ME WEAK. I AM SHAKING. I AM THE LIGHTNING IN THAT RAIN. I AM THE DARK IN THAT NIGHT. I AM THE THING HIDING UNDER YOUR BED, LONG SHARP CLAWS AND EYES GLOWING RED."Thank god being an official Sonic character is held to such high regard and given such caring attention to backstory.Since Unleashed, every single character that has been revealed by Sega couldn't hold a spotlight to any character pre-unleashed, couldn't hold a candle to any character with any semblance of character progression.Fucking Fleetway Sonic the cunt and cunt enabler had more going for him than ANYTHING that Sega has done in terms of character for over a fucking decade.Who's yer Daddy Shadow
>>240694440>Is it even a meme
>>240694017/sthg/ started from a full storytime of the Archie comics.
>>240694275There's nothing fresh or exciting about Metal Sonic, especially when it just felt like a clone of Sonic Heroes plot.
>>240694402>>240694457Just as I thought
>>240692892That is honestly the worst Tails ever all things considered. Toy Island’s used to be the worst but that was at least 18 years ago before 3D modeling and printing should’ve ensured this kind of shit never happened again.
>>240694618Was Infinite intentionally shit?
Why was tangle added to the comics ? Why did we need her when any of the other female characters could take her place?
>>240694754is he sticking his tongue out? And his legs are so tiny. Is hie missing a tail? At least his eyes look good I guess.
Is there anyone with a cuddly Tails plush they can recommend to me?
>>240694754It's kind of crazy how they added all the tiny details people forget like the great bracelets, the triangles in his years, the anklets, etc. but they couldn't get his body shape or legs right
>>240694628The Ride had nothing to do with /co/ and there was no forced merge.
>>240694618Literally seething right now.I'm sorry.
>>240694646>even the comics are filled with nostalgia panderingThis is it boys. It was nice while it lasted.
>>240693806Jazwares prototype 3 inch Sonic. They weren’t gonna go all-out with the articulation at first. They also took the dopey articulated spikes off of BK Sonic there.I kinda prefer these because they don’t look stupid and buff.
I HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE NEXT THREAD
I like Legacy and Reborn, so if those continue I won't feel sad about IDW being terrible.
>>240695090*grey not great, ears not years. I don't even know how that happened>>240694856I think so. My guess is that he was supposed to be a parody of DA OCs. He's unnecessarily edgy in a franchise that had nothing remotely serious since 2008. He has a revenge backstory. He even has heterochromia. That's the biggest giveaway. Even Shadow has normal eyes. Aaron even pushed Coldsteel memes hard in 2016/2017 before his reveal. They knew what they were doing with Infinite. And given all the stupid self-aware humor of the franchise, having Infinite be a parody makes sense. He was intentionally bad
>>240695204STOP ITIT HURTS
>>240695856Legacy is worse than IDW, Reborn is decent but it has an offputting artstyle.
>>240695856Why is fan content usually better than the official stuff? Is SEGA really the problem with Sonic?
>>240695204Based Vector stanning best ship I can't do this I can't even do the quirky shitpost why aren't the Chaotix in this game what the fuck happened I legitimately wish to know what lead up to this
>>240695204What were they thinking?
>>240690149What is the point of splitting Classic and Modern's universes if Classic is still just modern's childhood being relived on a simultaneous timeline
>>240695204Who else would be on Blaze & Silver's team aside from Cream or Marine though?
>>240695204I wonder if anybody from Sumo Digital ever came here to see what we thought of the game. I'd like to hope they know fans aren't happy with this. But more likely than not, they're only paying attention to facebook and twitter posts saying stuff like "oh Silver is in this? yay :3 xD"
>>240696104Yes. SEGA has always been the problem.
>>240694618Jesus christ stop he's already dead
>>240694976Classic or Modern? How much are you willing to pay, etc.
>>240696104Yes. I mean just look at Mania. It was only published and oversaw by Sega. They didn't really have their employees work too much on it and the ones that did, the programmers, were overseen by Whitehead/Stealth/etc., a team of mostly freelancers. Sega doesn't know what to do with the games. They don't know what to do with the character himself. They don't know what to do with anything anymore. We're going back to the "throw shit a the wall and see what sticks" method in the mid 2000s but keeping everything incredibly stale and samey at the same time.
>>240696305team dimensional, my dudeSticks or Classic Sonic
>>240695856>we will need to rely on an edgy sonic fanfic with weird character designs for any kind of satisfying story
>>240696439Either, and let's say around £30
Reminder that if Sonic gets closer to Amy, she will die.
>>240693145because he wants most of the cast dead
>>240696305why was vector sumo digital's first answer to that question
>>240696560>Classic SonicFuck no
Is Klonoa in sonic world?
>>240696305Cream or Marine would have been just fine, and then the Chaotix could have been their own team.TSR manages to fuck up 3/5 potential Teams (not counting "Team Eggman", he's literally just racing on his own alongside some robots like in Riders, with Metal Sonic being involved in the story AFAIK), literally the only decent ones are Team Sonic and Team Dark and that shouldn't even count because they didn't update those teams. I was all for them updating the Teams (Rose needed to be shaken up IMO, and Blaze/Silver needed a new Team for them to fit into the gimmick of this game, so some characters needed to move around somewhere), but literally every change they made was for the worst.I can think of half a dozen ways they could have updated the Teams/Roster, better than how theyve done with Team Rose and Team Vector.
>>240696649at last I truly see
>>240696639she'll realize she can't stand the bastard and shoot herself
Remember lore, worldbuilding and character interactions?
Tails Gets Trolled > Return to Little Planet > Mega Man Comic > Archie Reboot > Fleetway > Preboot Ian > IDW > Omelette Du Fromage > Legacy > STCO > Reborn > Penders Preboot
>>240697020No. And soon no one will either.
>>240697051How is Legacy not at the bottom?
Why didnt SEGA just indulge themselves in our money with various/correct team compositions for TSR? Corrected Team Rose and Chaotix...other team combos like the hooligans, team mania, one team SEGA...why are they so afraid of themselves
>>240697051Tails Gets Trolled > Return to Little Planet > Mega Man Comic > Reboot > Fleetway > Preboot Ian > Reborn > IDW > Omelette Du Fromage > STCO > STCO > Legacy >>>>>>> Penders Preboot
>tfw you realize Mario has more consistent world because all the games share the same fuckin planet
>>240697020Speed runners and thus Classic "fans" took over, so none of that will be a thing again.
>>240697240>Sega>ever caring about Sonic
>>240696990That's how I wanna go.
Tails Gets Trolled > Return to Little Planet > Mega Man Comic > Archie Reboot > Fleetway > Preboot Ian > Ghosts of the Future > Omelette Du Fromage > Archie Sonic Online > IDW > Reborn >>>>>>> Legacy > Penders Preboot
>>240696990Sonic wouldn't really care if Amy killed herself desu.
>>240697051STCO should be next to the bottom, ruined Fleetway.
>>240697240They don't care. They haven't cared in a very long time. They are just trying to keep Sonic as safe and kid friendly as possible so it can push units. They have no.ambitions for this series.It will get worse after the movie.
>>240694939Tangle narratively establishes the idea that there are people in Sonic's world above the level of "terrified civilian shakily holding wispon" but still below the OP plz nerf tier of Sonic and friends that are willing and able to stand against Eggman with some minor level of success. Additionally, as she is a character unique to the comics, Ian is allowed more freedom in what he can do to or with them. For instance, exploring whatever issues Whisper has with her past regarding Eggman and Shadow isn't something he'd ever be allowed to just shove into Amy or Cream.
>>240697231Not them but I thought of that but it wasn’t Amiibo sized.
>>240697571Why not just make the civilians more capable then?
Forces would have been good if they had doubled down on Avatar stages/mechanics instead of throwing Classic Sonic in for literally no reason.Avatar creation is fun for autism and the avatar stages are legitimately the best thing about the game.
>>240697571Professor Pickle already did that in Unleashed.
>>240697542I'm long past the point of giving a slice of a fuck about how sonic feels
>>240697124That's pretty cute! Nice find!
>>240697231I want this thing so fucking bad and I’m not even that much of a Shadow fan. It’s a very nice figure. Too bad Lootcrate dropped the ball on their Sonic figure though.
>>240697628Not that anon but yeah pretty much. Please enjoy Tangle and Whisper the capable civilians.
>>240697776You could make everyone more capable.
>>240697631Forces could have been good if sega and sonic team stayed the fuck away from it
>>240697721>Sonic>feeling anythingHe hardly acknowledges the other cast members nowadays.
>>240697881Let's not write a comic about 7 billion people.
>>240698018Why not just make the characters one-offs?
>>240697759Thank you! I miss my Tails plush still. Currently the plush game is just so pricy overall except for a couple, I wish SEGA makes more figures (not action or opposable ones preferably) and plushes. The JP classic ones and the Boom ones are so fucking cute.
>>240697628Making the average civilian more capable would indirectly make Sonic look weaker and that's a no-no.>>240697698.>humanNot canon
>>240697051>Tails Gets Trolled > Return to Little PlanetAaron isn't the only one praising memes.
>>240697631The avatar dtages are still bad in comparison to actually competent video games.
>>240697847>Caring more about the awful story than the actual gameplayModerniggers are disgusting
Even the SEGA shop sucks.
>>240698124Or make Sonic look stronger since unarmed eggpawns can be defeated easily.
>>240698168you must feel so smart paying $25 for a fangame
>>240689397How would Infinite even know who the fuck Maria is?
>>240697571The mandates ruins everything.
>>240698161Yeah, like I said, if they had gave classic the cut, and then actually worked on Avatar stages and gave em more wispons, the game could have been a good video game.
>>240698181SEGA Shop has some rad stuff but I really feel like they should have more of the plushes and whatnot that you can find it irl or on eBay or Amazon.
>>240698124Remember when Sonic added a low ranking GUN member as a regular character?
>>240698061Let's not write a comic about 7 billion one-offs. Readers wouldn't enjoy the lack of focus and characters worth caring about. The introductory issues already got enough flak over less.
>>240698278In his defense at least it was a good game.
>>240698365They should import some Japanese Sonic plushes from Joypolis.
>>240698568But readers enjoy Spider-Man and that has a million one-offs.
>>240698278you must feel so smart paying $40 for Forces
I'm so fuckin sick of this modern/classic, human world/furry world bullshit. They should just let the Mania team shit out a Mania sequel if they want to, then remake Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 as games that take place in the Mania universe and just go from there.
>>240698706Oh my god I would enjoy the hell out of that. It’d make things so much easier. I don’t know if there’s problems getting it but I would like that.
>>240698841>paying money for any sonic gameoh that's a good one
>>240698889The E series already feels like an attempt to remake the HBH.
>>240698889>in the Mania universeThat's just the classic Universe, and SA1 already takes place in the classic universe since it has Angel Island there.
>>240699017>mfw spent nearly $200 in Sega Heroes because it had Cream in itthey found my weakness and abused it
>>240699269STUPID. FUCKING. WHALE.
IDW has to make so many compromises I don't get why anyone should bother.
>>240699269>buying almost every three days
>>240699269let me guess, you bought Mania on all three consoles + PC too
>>240698762Not the same readers, not the same kinds of stories or characters, and I don't recall recent runs of Spider-Man taking that approach anyway.As it stands, readers hated the introductory issues, it angered and confused them, and people like you would just be going "what was the point of X character couldn't they just have made AMY or SALLY do the thing" with X being one-off #6,582,592,286 instead of Whisper or Tangle. We'd be having the exact same conversation, except>>240699269Anon no
>>240697581>but it wasn’t Amiibo sized.Do you mean it's too big or too small?
>>240699520Too big. I think that figure is like 5 inches?
>>240699269You need help
>>240699269oh my god anon why
>>240699269>Felt bad for buying forces during the steam christmas sale for £5Well thanks for making me feel less bad anon.

>>2406996204.5 in on base, 3.75 in just by himself
>>240699518Amy, Cream, Sticks could have done the same thing. There was no point.They are basically in the same position as Chris, Chuck, and Sam Speed.
>>240699409What comic would you suggest instead, anon?
>>240699269anon...what the fuck...?
>>240699269Thanks for making me feel better about spending $1 as a grown man trying to win a Tails plush from a crane game today.
>>240699937Tails Gets Trolled, Ghosts of the Future, Archie Sonic Online, Reborn
>Modern Sonic games are so bad that Modernfags would rather spend hundreds of dollars on a terrible mobile game for a poorly animated sprite of their favorite character
>>240699881Sam Speed had the interesting motivation to beat Sonic in a race.
>>240700148>the franchise is so successful that fans will spend hundreds of dollars on a terrible mobile game for a poorly animated sprite of their favorite character
I just got some random gameinformer magazine in my mail again. Some page about TSR. Apparently Iizuka putting emphasis on character interaction or something.weird seeing King Boom Boo again
>>240700148That's because Modern Sonic has more interesting characters.
>>240699269I've spent over $1000 on Sonic related mobile games within the last 5 years.
>>240699881Very good, now rub both your brain cells together very carefully to hopefully realize that you don't actually want anything at all.You just dislike supporting characters, you think there is no right way to do them. That's fine.
Modern Sonic is so good that the genius that is Masahiro Sakurai prefers it.
SONIC ADVENTURE 2 AND MODERN SONIC FOREVER, BABY
I have fears for a Sonic Adventure 3. If its great then its all sega will do for years, if its terrible or even sub par they'll ruin everything in attempts to make distance between them and it, and critics will gnaw at it forever.>>240698889Most semi-famous Sonic fans were asking for humans to be removed or whatever, brainscratch, nickon ect. People on Sega/Webber's radar. Or rather drawing attention to the lack of reason behind there being like 6 anthros in a human world. Sega's response as always is an overreaction.
Blast from the past time
>>240699845lol @ nobody picking boostshit
>>240700362Sonic has a supporting cast that is underutilized I would rather see them get attention first.How do you do that huge leap in logic?
>>240700049>Tails Gets Trolled Admittedly, the best Sonic comic ever created.Dead now, and while re-reading it is fun, it's also sad.>GoFActually likable story spun up from an edgy premise, and still updates, granted.>ASOTwo issues completed, inconsistent release times due to it being a group project of anons, your mileage may vary>RebornThis isn't a criticism, but it's different designs, it's contrast to what a normal Sonic story is, and it's edgy themes is all fine, artistic vision, you do you and all. But it's not for everyone, and, let's be honest, you can hardly call Reborn a consistent comic series when it keeps being rebooted (for artistic reasons, admittedly)Honestly, the only alternatives you have is reading TGT over and over again or hoping for a more consistent schedule from the other 3.IDW is a consistent comic that comes out monthly (usually) with decent art and a simple enough story that still manages to be better than the games.
>>240700238ah yes all that character interaction we will see in a story told through unanimated cutscenes. Based Sumo and Iizuka, what a pair>>240700308spend some of that money on me, anon
>>240700271>Ow the edge>Shitver>Funny twitter meme cat>Bat Tats>Blaze the Flat>Weak>PedobaitYeah they're so much more interesting than based Mighty and Ray.
>>240700489You are just pointing out the follies of all fan content. IDW is already reaching "if it isn't fun, why bother" stage.
>>240700732Yes and your post actually proves my point ironically.
>>240700485Because you're flipflopping between clamoring for inconsequential one-off characters and wishing Sonic's supporting cast got more love.Tangle and Whisper are supporting cast members made to get the love the established cast cannot due to mandates and whatever. They'll grow and learn. Please enjoy.Except you won't because like I said, you don't actually want anything.
>>240700308I'm guessing majority of that money was loot boxes from Speed Battle?
I want some of that money so I can make a dope ass itabag.
>>240700381>sakurai>geniusplease go away smashfag you stink worse than the fujos
>>240700906No, haven't actually spent that much on Speed Battle. Mostly because I've been working to stop spending so much on mobileshit.
>meet cute girl/boy at work>get coffee>go to his/her house to play video games>things get spicy>he/she invites you into bedroom>see thiswould you in this bed?
>>240700463Because the only boost game Knuckles was in was Forces, and he didn't have much of a presence in that game outside of generic information.
>>240700758According to you. Others too, probably.But there's evidence that people like the comic, it's still selling well (considering the state of the comics industry), and a lot of people here like it.
>>240700887One off characters can get that kind of investment too. Making them recurring only makes it seem like the comic characters are more important than the game characters.
>>240701034Why do you have a picture of my bedroom?
>>240700887OR OR they don't need to focus on that and just focus on adventure stories.
>>240700463the boostshit character portrayals are terrible. It's honestly remarkable that they managed to make every character worse.
>>240701034Anon a girl can have any type of bedding they want and it'd always be seen as cute/quirky.
>>240701089I don't see that many people here who like it.
>>240701034>silverI'd dump that bitch immediately
>>240701089A storytime was cancelled before because of people complaining. It was instead held on /co/.
>>240699084tell that to sega, they'll blow a head gasket
>>240701253To be fair nobody here likes anything. This is the most cynical Sonic community on the internet.
>>240701239if I were gay I would have sex with any kind of bedding because sex is sex
>>240701089There are people here who defend Boom and Forces and Penders and a lot of other shit. It doesn't necessarily mean anything.
>>240701375>People defend pendersr u srs
>>240700463I did pick some.
>>240699845SA1. He still had his lone wolf personality intact and it was apparent he didn't get along with Sonic, and only worked with him unless he absolutely had to. Of course Shadow took all that away and made him a Tails clone. The only thing SA2 does better for Knuckles is his stage music.
>>240701375I mean, not even here. If it's selling well for kids, and adults outside of our community of what, 100 people, then it's doing alright.
>>240701453Anon there's more than one poll there
>>240701451>not defending the father of knuckles
>>240701126>One off characters can get that kind of investment too. You don't want them to. You'd complain about Amy or whoever not getting that kind of investment, not getting to do the things.
>>240701253Who the fuck cares about what people on 4chan/sthg likes?>>240701461This.
>>240701519oh shit i didn't even notice. usually they when strawpolls are posted its 4x of the same url
>>240700887If the comic isn't bothering to have huge lore or world-building why do we need Tangle and Whisper to exist? They exist to add to a world that will probably never be well-designed and will probably change constantly given SEGA.
>>240700732Bootleg Sonic and lame Tails are better characters, I agree
>>240701576This anon. >>240701089
>>240701576/v/ and >>240701253
>>240701461It's sales are dropping and IDW itself seems to be going through financial difficulties. I wouldn't call passable sales a good thing.
>>240701693>>240701771It was a dumb question and I tend to rag on people that say that but man, /sthg/ most likely ain’t paying for shit so why bother catering to you guys?
>>240699845>Sonic Adventure 1/2 across the board GASP!
>>240701902Sales have been more or less stable for a while, and Sonic is currently one of the best selling comics outside of the big 3.
>>240702081We don't have any sales since november and they were dropping since then. We really don't have enough data to prove they are stable yet.
>>240700887>Tangle and Whisper are supporting cast members made to get the love the established cast cannot due to mandates and whatever.>SEGA's bullshit is actively hindering the main cast's potentialthis shit is greek tragedy-tier ironic
Why did the boost era decide to go comical?Why did the boost era turn all the characters except silver and shadow into fucking cheerleaders? (You'd think if it were classic pandering they would be the least physically active)Why even have these characters if they don't do anything? Most of them were added for gameplay reasons originally.What was even the point of boom? That whole sub-franchise was described as a media wave or whatever. Like it was supposed to be an alternative to modern?Why is classic in modern games when he has games now? You just get a worse version of those games shoehorned into modern
