I have a weird fascination with this franchise, particularly its fans. How do they remain so loyal when there's been maybe one or two good games in the last two decades in a sea of average-to-terrible garbage released year after year? How did Sega manage to take all the wrong lessons away from their colossal fuckups of the mid-late 2000s?

Amy isn't even a playable character in SA2 (in 1P).


But this is a movie where Shadow is introduced and Amy plays a huge part in his story. Obviously, this depends on how close they decide to stick to SA2.



51:52 - "I love Rouge the Bat! I'll answer that! When is she going to appear? I'm not sure but I love Rouge the bat and I'd love to get her into this franchise. I think she makes a great movie character. You can't trust her but she's charming. You think she's screwing you over but she has a heart of gold. That's what movies are made of. Classic femme-fetale! She's fun. She enjoys what she does. She kind of fills the same role as cat women. Though I guess Cat Woman is now a more explicit love interest for batman. Female fans need - we need some girl anthros. I fully agree. There's all kinds of girls. You've got your Mary-annes and Gingers. Mary Anne's like Amy but the Gingers need to see themselves represented as well. That's Rouge."

I'll continue believing.

I'm going to be sad if there isn't a remix of Live & Learn somewhere in the movie.


I wonder why Sega of America has changed the voice actors for Sonic characters like at least three times with Sega of Japan has kept the same voice actors all these decades. Wouldn't be surprised if it's some capitalist bullshit yet again.

I don't expect this to be phenomenal but it definitely shows how much better the series would be faring if it was in the hands of anyone but Sonic Team, instead of stuff like this that actually looks like a Sonic level they want to make HIRE THIS MAN slop, I just don't get it.

Because the game was bad. That's it. It's like when "critics" like a game they'll say the music is immersive but if they don't like the game then the music is actually "manipulative" or some shit.
Game journalism was at its absolute worst in that decade too.


The reason's because the Japanese VAs are based and Sonic Team never managed to make a good English localization in the past, INCLUDING THE SCRIPT ITSELF. It's obviously easier to shift the blame to voice actors, even though the 4Kids VAs were perfectly fine. Hell, some folks argue that Adventure's VAs would have been fine if it wasn't for the direction.


True but in my case it's both. Sonic is like Duke Nukem. The protagonist is based the first games are based and both had their shittiest game in the mid-2000s. Both are viewed as "dated" and "were never good" according to journos.


>Sonic Team never managed to make a good English localization in the past, INCLUDING THE SCRIPT ITSELF.
What are the differences?


The plot is the same but there was a lot of broken translation. Just look up the translation mod of SADX on YouTube.

It got worse with Colors, the English dialogue is completely fucken different, it's like Sonic Team hates the English language.


Looks like Heroes but without the team formations.


Sonic from mainline games would unironically be an eco-anarchist hippie, you can excuse his relationships with Elise as not actually being class collaborationist in nature, and SEGA says it didn't happen so it didn't happen.

Fleetway Sonic is way wilder, if anyone has a potential to go full anarchist insurrectionary it's him.


And Fleetway's Super Sonic is an anarcho-Posadist.

Nothing Sonic stands for is the norm in society we have failed him.
The reason so many people outside of the fandom (and some inside it) laugh at Sonic so much is to hide the pain of knowing that the things he stands for are so out of reach in our real lives.

i miss them


Tails: This was easier than I thought!
Sonic: You can say that again. It's thanks to you helping out with this and that.
Tails: Me? I guess so… It's true that because I remodeled the machine to understand the Wisps' language and asked what's going on, you didn't have to keep going back and forth… Uhh… you really were more awesome, Sonic!
Sonic: Thank you! Either way, we did great.


Tails: We did it, dude!
Sonic: We? I don't remember you fighting off any insane robots.
Tails: True. Well, good job to you on inventing a translator that allowed us to speak to the aliens and figure out exactly what we needed to do so we weren't running around the park looking like idiots. Oh no wait, that was me.
Sonic: Good point. Either way, we can get out of this crazy place and go home.

Sonic: Tails, you're so based!
Tails: No, Sonic, you're more based then me.
Sonic: No, Tails, I insist.
Sonic: I'm so based.
Tails: I did half the work, you asshole.
Sonic: Pfft, whatever, I don't care.


I'm honestly not sure if the SatAM can smoothly be added to the mainline's canon without reintroducing the problem of too many characters Archie Comics has suffered from. It's like adding them to Fleetway, there's simply no space for them unless you'll make them secondary characters or split the screentime between them and the rest of the cast which would be a nightmare in terms of writing a consistent story. Other characters like Shadow are already struggling with actually having good writing, albeit because of executive meddling.


The problem with the SATAM cast is that you can't only add one or two characters, you have to add the whole gang or everyone is going to piss themselves over it. Afaik Flynn already confirmed characters like Nicole would have to be added in their original computer form so that's one down already.

>Other characters like Shadow are already struggling with actually having good writing, albeit because of executive meddling.

Shadow is a cash cow so nobody can touch him.


Fans need to understand the American side of Sonic media made these characters before Sonic Team created a bigger ensemble cast and Archie basically had to find some way to keep using it.

this is how i look when trying to explain sonic adventure's plot to someone


Exactly, the only character other than Sonic, Eggman and Mecha Sonic in 1992 was Tails. That's it. Not much to work with.


>>32204 (me)
Though seeing Mecha in any official media again would have been based NGL.


I know the plot of SA2 but even I am confused.


SA2 is the only Sonic game where Shadow had an actual personality. Every game appearance since them has him just being serious and brooding. At least SA2 Shadow could actually smile (or smirk) and crack a joke.

If you still have a twitter account please vote for Professor Pickle.


>If you still have a twitter account
lol, no.


Heroes and Battle's Shadow was still good and ShTH's Shadow was not as bad as people think, the modern Shadow is a pastiche of his evil route. I don't think Shadow became worse of a character just because he got a pistol and a motorcycle (the awkward swears were still funny, though him swearing while dying is more fitting).


Who the fuck votes for Cream. Absolute bores.


We need a Babysitting Cream sequel

flynn tried his hardest to make a sonic universe that appealed to both game and satam fans and you could tell

Someone on 4chin's /co/ leaked the next Sonic IDW issue and it makes me wish this was what the comic was regularly like.


Not sure how Zoroark is less furry that Lopunny, this thing is covered in fur and shit.
>Who the fuck votes for Cream
People who have a trash taste.
Prof. Pickle needs his own anime.

Hey Ian, you sure seem to be having a lot of fun writing all the official material nowadays… But do you think I could write for the next ga- Oh, you've got that one covered already? Well okay, but maybe I could write for smaller stuff like this cookboo- Oh, you've got that too… Well, I guess I'll go back to just writing Sonic Channel stories that nobody will read because SoA never translates them… Have fun…


She's cute.


Generic cuteness is unremarkable, though I like the fact that she's a rabbit and fights with the help of Cheese, that's creative. All-in-all, I'd prefer her to Big.


bunny cunny


Cursed comment.


That checklist is so BS, zoophiles are obviously not attracted to low intelligence, this is more of an ethical form of zoophilia. For you to be considered a furry fan the creature must be physically anthropomorphic also, otherwise you just validate the stereotypes conservatives have about the furry fandom.


uygha really scrolled up hundreds of posts to reply to a 4-month old post to start some moralist discussion like we havent enough of those


I played through Dream Team and the game has really grown on me. I've gotten used to the touch controls enough to where they don't really hamper anything and the levels have gotten better as the game has progressed. The game put all its points into gameplay and presentation, the story's basic, the music's forgettable and the voice acting is bad, but it's a worthwhile trade for the best playing 3D Sonic game in at least a decade.
Since they're both mostly collectathons, it's going to be compared to Frontiers a lot and Dream Team blows Frontiers out of the water in terms of level design and gameplay.
I have gotten a few slowdowns and weird bugs, but those are probably a result of me using an older iPhone more than anything being wrong with the game itself.


Just wait another year or two for another fun SOL issue instead of boring generic melodrama… if IDW doesn't go bankrupt before.


I hope they honor the results.

Jewel should've been a student/assistant to Professor Pickle instead of this "resistance" crap. Oh well.


no game since Sonic Adventure 2 has so completely nailed adding virtual pets to a game. after a point you were just doing missions to feed your chao.
