I just finished SA2 for the first time and I really, really regret putting it off for so long.
It was fucking amazing.
LIVE AND LEARN
Anyway, Sonic general.
Ew, you thought it was amazing?
It's certainly not terrible, especially back in the day, but it's nowhere near "amazing". It's like perfectly middle of the road.
>It's certainly not terrible, especially back in the day
yes, because i once left my copy of doom near the sun and the graphics on that just got fucking ugly, like, all pixelated and shit.
Remember, kids, always play your games fresh.
Sonic and Shadow levels are SA2 are still the best 3D Sonic platforming the series has ever seen as far as I'm concerned.
Generations came close with taking Unleashed's gameplay, slowing things down just a tad, and giving you a few larger and less linear areas to run through, but for the most part you're still just running forward and most of the actual platforming is limited to mediocre 2D sections.
here are my sonic opinions they are very important please look at them
It was disappointing.
>no hub worlds
>Tails is always bound to his mech
>Knuckles and Rouge missions are balls, the tracker thing doesn't work for shit
SADX was better and is still my favorite Sonic game followed by
Some people will argue that 1 is better than 2, but those people are suffering from nostalgia goggles. 1 has aged like shit, and 2 is pretty much a strait upgrade, removing the worst gameplay elements and keeping the best... Well, treasure hunting was shit in both.
sonic adventure 1/2 has the same shitty ass controls and wonky uncooperative camera as the two following games AND it has terrible butt rock music
why do people like these games? makes no sense. the recent sonics are far better, please elaborate how they aren't.
>putting Freedom Planet in fangame
fuck all you niggers that say this
oh my fucking god it has absolutely nothing to do with sonic outside from the gameplay being similar, "HURR HOLY SHIT ANTHROPOMORPHIC CHARACTERS IN A 2D SIDESCROLLER YOU GO KINDA FAST IN" fuck off. fuck. off.
>no hub worlds
That's an improvement.
>Tails is always bound to his mech
It's not like he was good in SA1.
Basically just Sonic except with much shorter stages and you fly over all obstacles with no effort so you're barely playing at all, really. Most of the story by far is spent walking around the dumb hub worlds and playing Sky Chase as a result
It's a very dull and empty experience.
>>Knuckles and Rouge missions are balls, the tracker thing doesn't work for shit
They were terrible in the first game as well.
They're worse in 2 though, yeah.
I owned a Dreamcast and Sonic Adventure 2 when I was younger, but I could never finish the last story cause I couldn't figure out how to beat the Biolizard after he makes you float around.
Now i don't own a Dreamcast anymore...
Nah, said shitty ass controls and wonky uncooperative camera? They definitely got worse in later games. Also the butt rock is awesome, you have bad taste.
Also, later games were buggy-ass unplayable shit, on top of said camera and controls.
Also also, 1/2 both had the Chao Garden, which is inherently a better game than 80% of 3D Sonic games.
Check this shit nignogs.
What's YOUR favorite SA music, /v/? I also like the piano at the beginning of the hero race but the rest of the theme is garbage.
Dude, Chao garden is the bomb. A staggering amount of things to do and ways to raise/breed/kill and reincarnate. It's like the epitome of never running out of things to discover.
I liked SegaSonic, but I never got the controls working quite right, and there was some level near the end I couldn't beat because Sonic was incapable of going fast enough with the controls set up the way they were. I spent way more time fucking with that than actual playing the game, and it just made me mad.
I liked it though, more even than Sonic 1, which I like more than Sonic 2. I'm clearly not saying "it's similar to another game so it's bad".
Also, shit son, it was entered into SAGE (Sonic Amateur Games Expo) back in 2012, the playable characters are all Sonic fan characters made by some guy on deviantart, and Lilac was originally a hedgehog and could roll into a ball at will.
>Hunnid P will never do another Knuckles track
>Crush 40 will never do a main theme for the series again
>Eggman will never be playable again
hahah no, the streamlined linearity and camera focusing starting with unleashed is way better than sonic adventure, less than a minute into that shit it was getting stuck on walls and flopping all over the place
Would you eat Blaze's cooking, /v/?
Keep in mind that it would either be undercooked or burned, but she made it for you with all her love.
How's that master plan coming along, /v/?
I don't think I enjoyed a single minute of this game and I just don't know how anyone could. The fact that some other people apparently like it so much really baffles me. This hasn't happened with any other game really, so I'm very surprised.
Still play sab2 every now and then. its still as good as when I played it as a child. Sadly it was the last really good sonic games to come out for a while. Don't have high hopes for sonic boom though
>SA2 is my favorite Sonic game despite it's flaws
Generations is basically the Sonic/Shadow levels but better.
loved generations it was truly a great sonic game. I was just saying that after this game sonic fell into shit and mediocre for some time. Generations was after sega started to steer sonic in the right direction again
>grows his own food
>probably is a great cook
Objectively, best husbando.
Played it for the first time a year ago, I have to say the story builds up pretty good, Last episode was intense, loved the final battle but Biolizard was more memorable, loved the theme song playing while fighting that beast.
You wanna talk guilty pleasures? You really wanna go there? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nhp4fT8iyS8
Wii U version is a maybe. 3DS version is fucking garbage
I regret nothing. At all
You guys ever notice that Princess Elise looks like a redheaded Lightning?
Oh my god, I actually can't unsee it. Just kill me now
See, if we go with the theory that Blaze is alternate universe Sonic, Is Marine Alt Tails or alt Cream?
There's just something incredibly nice about this song. I hate myself for liking it, but goddamn, it's catchy as fuck.
I feel like Sonic and Tails personality' got swapped in Blaze and Marine.Marine has more of Sonic's personality then tails but Blaze has more of Tails's calm sensible demeanor than Sonic....Alt Cream
I want someone to draw Tails and Knuckles talking gardening tips while Sonic looks on surprised.
The Nocturnus weren't "his kind" though.
Sure, they were echidnas, but they were from an enemy clan.
I like to think that's a big deal for him; like, a Jews and Arabs kind of big. He'd sooner hook up with a
prostitute batthan a Nocturnus echidna. And yes, fucking Penders
I'd love every bite
what do you mean by "finished"
you aren't finished until you get all 180 emblems
I want to
fugSilver while Blaze watches and masturbates
Also, why was Chris so goddamn hot and bothered over Sonic?
So is Blaze as bad of a cook as Silver or less?
Actually it already happened
>Green Hill throwback mixed in
>composer didn't even realize he did it until a friend pointed it out
>tfw used to be in the top 20 for aquatic mine on the leaderboards for the xbl release
>tfw I lost my screenshot
>tfw that was super important to me
>tfw all the cheating shits have the first 50 spots locked in for pretty much every level and I won't be able to beat them
>Love is either a bitch to him or is killed right near the end
>Any human girl he gets close to is either erased from existence or shot in the back
>Not only does he no longer remember she existed but his entire race in the process was erased as well...besides Tikal who is a ghost of course
As bad, if only because of her temper issues.
In the games it's ambiguous. She's not been seen since the snd of Sonic Adventure 1, but she disappeared into exactly the same beam of heavenly light as Chaos. And Chaos came back
with no explanation offered at all, so maybe Tikal could too.
In the comics she explicitly lives in the Master Emerald. She can astral project to people far away, but generally just hangs out sitting on top of the gem chatting to Knuckles.
What things would Cream the Rabbi preach?
What do you imagine Knuckles and Tikal talk about?
What about this chick?
I never got that far in Dark Brotherhood, got boring after a while
There's nothing wrong with liking it anon,it's legitimately a good song
This game was the greatest shit back in 2001
This is when you realized that shit got real:
My fellow gentleman of african decent. All Stars Racing Transformed was the best shit
How great the emerald is, how great the Island is, how great the Knuckles tribe was, how pretty the sky looks up here, how their people kicked Gizoid butt back in the day.
It's be like two Mayans sat on top of an overgrown jungle temple in El Mirador, reminiscing about the glory days of 900AD in a world where no-one else remembers or cares.
Being Knuckels is suffering
Only when Sonic Team
feels the sunshine
And then they'd come to the realization that they're the last of their race and most likely nobody else will ever remember those times
At least he's got a new cute female friend that's into archeology and stuff.
That was some 2deep shit right there.
I miss when games went for maximum cheese.
He is a guy that used to write for the Archie Sonic comics and also that RPG. He went maximum "MY OC DOUGHNUT STEEL" and has claimed the IP rights to all the original characters he wrote so he could make his own series with them.
Remember that time when Sonic and friends completely failed to stop a major city from being destroyed and millions died as a result?
Blaze is probably my favourite Sonic character. The one of the new girls (on the right) remind me of her too.
Anyone have favourites?
> babbling historyaboo nerd
> prone to b-b-baka! slaps
> not an echidna
I'd choose extinction. Relic a shit
Sonic vs Shadow 2 is still one of the highlights of the franchise for me. The whole cutscene as a build up to the fight, Shadow acknowledging Sonic properly for the first time, and he just saying that he loves adventure, like surviving a near death experience was nothing to him.
That;s why I like the comics. They're just the right mix of funny and action to be fun without being too serious or too goofy.
Objectively best part story-wise in a Sonic game.
Prove me wrong.
I'm not even going to try, because you're right.
Favorite male character:Eggman
Favorite female character: Blaze
I'm actually not in my early 20s and never played SA2 back in the day, I just recently played it on the Gamecube a few weeks ago for the first time and while I can see why people complain about the controls and the Knuckles levels, I still think it's a fun game, Better than the kind of shit kids nowdays are playing at least. It's no Super Mario World or Sonic 2, but it's still a decent 3D adventure game with tons fo charm.
By the way I also disliked when they changed Sonic's design in Adventure, but I got over it already I guess, I just don't give a fuck anymore although I still prefer classic Sonic.
>best boss fight (with the best music)
If only his levels weren't so insulting short and easy, and there weren't so few of them, and his first level wasn't just a tutorial, and the vast majority of your time in Gamma's story wasn't spent walking from point a to point b in the hub world.
to think that his one true love in the comics is gone forever
to think that all that chemestry for years between the two is gone and will never return
> bonfire of the OC donuts
> a bad thing
Her mother was literally called Mari Su.
I mean for christ's sake
What is the most Bizarre Sonic character to you guys?
Pic related to both.
not that anon, but to top it all off, what penders is actually doing to "his" characters is downright cringeworthy. all for the better though, once he drops whatever pile of shit he's holding he'll be an absolute laughing stock.
I'm not implying, I'm damn well stating the obvious, but Mama Robotnik is a pretty good run for her money. Best one-off girl then?
> Penders OC donuts destroyed
> immediatly replaced by new OC donuts
It's like a fucking revolving door of not-learning-our-lesson
>tfw no more AoStH ever
>Katella and Mama Robotnik will never appear ever
At least we have the memories
I'm still waiting for the day they announce Adventure 3 so we can get the Chao garden again,and no I do not recognize Sonic 06 as Adventure 3.It was an aborted adventure 3.
>my fucking face when this was my first attempt after just purchasing SA2 on Steam
How dead would you be inside if the Lara-Su-Chronicles become a bestseller?
no, for what he did he's just an annoying dumbass who fucked a really good comic into oblivion.
what we've seen so far of his new work is downright cringe.
the full thing will be terrible pukey shit, but /v/, /sthg/, sonic fags everywhere and sega will all sit down collectively for an afternoon and laugh their asses off at this faggot. along with providing a goldmine of chris chan teir reactions.
>He's pretty much already the second coming of JRP
>I'm pretty sure nobody will hire him for comic book work anymore
I'm intrigued: which do you think hurt him more? Almost running Archie Sonic into the ground with his years of terribad plots and characters, or his crazy lawsuit?
Because while I'd hope that creative incompetence were more damaging to a writer than threatening an executive's jewgold, I strongly suspect it isn't.
Should I get this on Steam? I have a Dreamcast, but I don't feel like trying to find a copy or burning one.
José Roberto Pereira, the guy who wrote for the first issues of the Mega Man Brazilian comic. He also threw a huge bitch-fit surrounding his OCs and even was planning to kill off the Mega Man cast so the comic could be about them.
>This was actually real.
After the Black Box Somersault rumor I thought it was fake.
Nah Marine is more of like that one annoying little sister who can be cute at times
I loved the Sonic Rivals outfits. I really hope that if the next Sonic game has multiplayer, we can dress up Sonic in outfits. Seeing him in a Link costume was fucking adorable.
Why is there very little discussion about the
Advanceseries in sonic threads in general?
Also, im posting my fav songs from each of the games. Join if you wish:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLhGvzu5kKo (best song in the entire series)
>You realise Shadow was the fake hedgehog for a whole other reason.
>HD version will never add Dreamcast DLC.
I like how Cream made the bosses her bitch In Advance 2 and 3
I don't think they added stuff like this.
Unless there was some obscure method to unlocking them that I don't know about: no. Battle and by proxy the HD version just had the A rank alt costumes and you could only use those in multiplayer.
There's Christmas costumes too. It doesn't have those either.
Favorite Male character (Games only):Omega or Eggman
Favorite Male (Comics):Eggman, Twan, or Omega
Favorite misc media (StC, and the shows besides SaTAM):Whoever that butler was from Sonic X. He was a cool guy
Overall: Eggman or Omega
Favorite Female (Games):Blaze
Favorite Female (Misc Media):Topaz
Overall favorite Female:Bunnie
Favorite character overall: Tie between Bunnie and Omega
>we'll never get another Storybook game ever
They should bring it back as a handheld series at least. I've always loved the idea of AUs, and Black Knight was pretty fun in that regard.
Why doesn't SEGA let their forgoten characters appear in the Spinoffs?
What would you want the nex story book game to be set in?
>Sega will never put this much effort into a minigame ever again
I AM ALL I AM ALL I AAAAAM
>those long legs
>those wide hips
>those small tits
What would you want SEGA to do for Sonic's 25th anniversary?
>People honestly think Shadow the Hedghog wasn't the point where Sonic completely jumped the shark
There's a fucking scene in the cgi intro with Shadow gunning down soldiers with an actual fucking assault rifle while "BLACK HEARTED EVIL" plays
>those fucking mirror hallways in Twinkle Park that does sudden turns and the controls get all fucked beyond relief
That fucking concept art
>read the tell-all Console Wars book a month ago
>mfw American Sega employees were scarred shitless of an anthropomorphic hedgehog having a human girlfriend.
No one really talks about his game anymore unless it's to remember how ridiculous it was.
Easy mode? Sonic Collection featuring Taxman enhanced editions of the Sonic games that are on iOS for consoles and PC in addition to SA (With proper widescreen and resolution), SA2, and Sonic Heroes.
Hard Mode? A decent sonic game.
>tfw he appears on three screens in hot shelter
>the random baby laughter in the stage music

>mfw trying to figure out the Egg Carrier cradh site
>mfw just took a shitty fucking guess
THAT BLUE HEDGEHOG AGAIN OF ALL PLACES
Has Tikal been used at all since Sonic Adventure?
Oh my god, just when I thought SA's cutscenes couldn't get any worse, Knuckles chases Eggman and he's walking at 3 inches an hour
Sonic, what are you doing here?
I heard you were on a quest for the Master Emerald.
You know me and you don't get along.
I don't think that's the point right now Knuckles.
I know how much the Emerald means to you, and I want to help get it back.
Stop being stubborn and think.
Well, I guess you're right.
You're damn right Knuckles.
For some reason this awnser just makes me laugh, it's like I am emotionally scarred and expect nothing but that one guy going "NO, ANYTHING BUT THAT" to come out
Hey! It's not his speed! He must be mrmrmr ---- NAME IS SHADOW.
A much more momentous and humbling tragedy has occurred within the state of New York city.
Can we all agree as Sonic fans that this guy is an undeniable autist that should have never existed?
