Sonic Spinball is the best Sonic game.
Best watch yourself before I steal you're waifu.
or at least a sequel to Black knight
while you are at it make Tails a knight
Joke's on you, bud.
She's already dead. ;-;
G.U.N. was better when it was antagonistic. Fuck the police.
Sonic Boom is the best Sonic cartoon Sonic doesn't look so bad wearing sports tape Goat girl is the best Sonic girl
dunno if this was done before, but I completed the lost world level in Sonic Adventure without using the snake or water switches. I recorded the full run.
Any word on any of the other Mecha Sonics post-reboot? What about Nega's Metal 3.0? I could see a possible merge with Schlemmer's Bits to create a Shard facsimile...that could totally happen, r-right?
Sonic 06 was my first Sonic game, so regardless of quality, I pretty much enjoy every Sonic game
I'm guessing it's in Time Attack. Also, the music in this stage is god-tier, so fuck you and the horse you rode in on.
10/10 bait makes me respond everytime
Y-You don't know that..! YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING!
I enjoy sssonic2's Sonic fanart more than others
Gotta accept it, anon. I did, still hurts, but I did it.
I think Unleashed is a good game and deserves a sequel moreso than Adventure 2
I have no opinions to add, I just wanted to give more replies.
I think the game stories need to be a bit more serious, because pure comedy isn't working.
I actually like Rotor now and think he's got a lot of potential
Julie Su was never a good character and her sister was better than her in every way
Big is the twelfth Egg Boss and Snively is a red herring.
You wasted precious moments of your life reading this thinking it was anything substantial
I'm not sure if I should laugh because it's a fun idea, or because it has not been done yet even though I remember this idea being in the very first thread Bump was discussed, or react because >wanting to hurt the deer
That drawfag/writefag idea wall is a pretty cool idea.
Fleetway psychopath Super Sonic was the best depiction of super forms Sonic Chronicles was a good game and I want more character-driven Sanic RPGs S3&K is the best game I have ever played, in any genre
I wasn't the last 8 years of my life shutting myself indoors glued to this website.Checkmate.
>he sure showed us
If you're gonna respond to that post with Hope, at least have her actual last appearence
Genesis 3D Blast's music fucking sucks. Panic Puppet was the only good track.
>tfw Shadow was supposed to comfort Hope but editorial mandate left him out of the issue
Fuck you Paul.
Welp, I think that's enough sorrow for tonight. I'll be off to bed, soon.
Goodnight /sthg/. Stay fast!
what if sage was in the car and fails due to bump's colossal
Buns of steels
This ship is completely underrated while Sonic and Amy is really overrated.
Common theory says that it must have been a one time fling. how do you think rutan was born ?
Oh absolutely. I stand by my belief that he's the father because he's the only one who could get away with banging her and not only living to tell the tale, but being able to get away
>That's because everyone knows Knuckles hits that
So they think they know...
One wonders how sex with that echidna would go for fini to go away right after doing the do. My bet is that they agreed on merely leaving each other afterward , rather than lien-da going full praying mantis.
Happy year of the monkey.
Whoops wrong pic
what is with all these people who want to get fucked by an enchilada
Maybe since they can't unwrap a burrito
You don't wanna get fucked by Fini?
>The best pairing is FinixBig.
U wot m8?
It's a scientific fact that every time Penders tweets, humanity loses another brain cell.
I don't understand how someone could think this is even below a 6/10. Not even the shooting stages are bad.
There are a few stages which just SUCK. Here's a few examples:
>Route 101 and Route 280
Actually, just plain fuck the pyramid/desert parts of SA2.
sorry, but the only thing that game has going for it is nostalgia. other then that, the only redeeming thing about it is the Chao garden, Shadow and Gerald's speech.
And obligatory master plan.
Those levels aren't shit, they're THE shit. Pyramid Cave was actually the first level I got good at.
I got the game for fucking Christmas two weeks ago. Good gameplay, controls, and level-design aren't "nostalgia", Anon.
treasure hunting and Tails/Master's mechs are boring as all hell. SA1 was better in this respect.
if you were able to jump rails and the camera didn't fuck out every 2 seconds at sanic speeds. maybe.
>Mad Space. overall design.
>treasure hunting in general. see above and add in 5 minutes should be plenty.
>Pyramid levels. both treasure and mechs. only good part there was the boss fight.
>every Sanic/Shadow level only because of the shitty camera. these would be redeeming otherwise.
Oh god, it's like that pairing of Tails with Fifi from Tiny Tunes, where do they come up with this?
Why are you ignoring Sonic and Shadows' stages? Also, the shooting stages are fun and satisfying when you actually make any sort of attempt to get good and memorize them, but could just benefit from better controls.
>If you were able to jump rails and the camera didn't fuck out every 2 seconds at sonic speeds, maybe.
Not only do I rarely have issues with jumping on rails, but the camera doesn't have shit to do with controls and also doesn't freak out every two seconds.
>every Sonic/Shadow level only because of the shitty camera
Jesus Christ, you're just trolling at this point. Not only does the camera have nothing to do with how the levels are designed, but it isn't all that bad to begin with. I rarely have issues with it, and when I do, they last for about half a second.
What the fuck version of SA2 did you play where Eggman's name is "Master"?
If his app doesn't reach out the screen and sexually pleasure you as read, no, I really don't think it's going to do anything amazing and unique. Jesus, this idiot. His fucking comic/graphic novel/whatever the hell he wants to call it was supposed to be fully released four years ago.
I wish he would stop doing stupid shit
Honestly, that would have been better for his character and narrative if he did permadie in SA2 and he would have been more memorable in my eyes that way. However the guy was popular and I guess I can't blame Sega too much for chasing that cash, especially in that awkward transitional period of becoming a 3rd-party developer.
In case you missed it!
Well meme'd my friend.
My point is that Sonic x Amy is the most canon romantic ship in the Sonic series, so it simply cannot be overrated.
Amy was specifically created to be Sonic crush and has been following him through all those games, and Sonic even hinted back in some of them. It won't definitely happen however because sappy romance doesn't fit well in the adventure series, as you said, but it is the 'most canon' romantic ship.
Also for fun I made this:
Tails x Fifi Le Fume (Tiny Toons)
Tails x Hello Kitty (Hello Kitty)
Tails x Dot Warner (Animaniacs)
Tails x Eleanor Miller (Alvin & The Chipmunks)
Tails x Rita (Jungledyret Hugo)
Tails x Krystal (Star Fox)
Tails x Vixen (The Hound & The Fox)
Tails x Renamon (Digimon)
Tails X Klonoa (Klonoa)
Tails x Sakura (Street Fighter)
Tails x Maka (Soul Eater)
Tails x Aerial (This is actually a Sonic character, but... well, it really is a crackship)
Tails x Coco Bandicoot (Crash Bandicoot)
Tails x Vulpix (Pokémon)
Tails x Kagamine Rin (Vocaloid)
Tails x Nami (One Piece)
Tails x Twilight Sparkle (My Little Pony & Equestria Girls)
Tails x Pinkie Pie (My Little Pony & Equestria Girls)
Tails x Rarity (My Little Pony & Equestria Girls)
Tails x Applejack (My Little Pony & Equestria Girls)
Tails x Fluttershy (My Little Pony & Equestria Girls)
Tails x Scootaloo (My Little Pony & Equestria Girls)
Tails x Apple Bloom (My Little Pony & Equestria Girls)
All Tails cross ships I could find. Enjoy!
Too bad it's past midnight here or else I would've laugh to death.
Sakura from Street Fighter. That there's my waifu Prower https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY6a8Ho51Xk
Overrated as in the art is as common as large trees in a forest or sand in a desert. Especially with the little moments in Boom had the comments flooded with fans of the ship.
Well, yes. This is the main Sonic pairing in the series, so it's normal to be the most common.
Of course it is. Are you going to complain that Mario x Princess Peach is overrated? Of course 'overrated' like an opinion is subjective, but it's silly to complain about the pairing that is the most realistic one.
You know what, you just believe you won and I'll just keep on believing you're an idiot. I don't feel like arguing with an autist over ships of cartoons characters before the sun comes up.
It's always morning somewhere.
And right now, that somewhere is burgerland.
I just realised, this is a parody of the Archie/Betty/Veronica milkshake image
Also geesus you could land aircraft on those foo-fas...
Cheers, I like how there are international versions of the 'as seen on TV' tag.
Also found a Robotnik animation cel I've wanted for a long time. Good start to the year.
>Sonic OVA Robotropolis
I need more fucking pictures of it
Omega is much better at comforting people
holy fuck wasn't expecting that
Horsescrossover with Sonic but mainly horses
I think I should be upset, but I've gone fully numb now
her forehead feels bit too tall
other than that 8.5/10
Eggman pls go
All right, /sthg/, hypothetical question time!
Let's say, somehow, we do get another Storybook-centric game. What mythos would you like it to follow? What platform would it be on? What about the characters?
Come on, folks, let's get the creative juices flowing.
>BK but instead of knights we have samurais which have special abilities example Shadow's chaos control isn't just instant teleport but he like could turn in to smoke and move faster than you
>levels here's a first thing come in to my mind
>like dragon road but bit more narrower and higher cliffs
>much Much more plants
>running next to a little river on a brick road
>literally smashing those attack buttons to get through the enemies
>I'm bad at story telling so I can't come up with anything
>Bosses use different kind of weapons katanas, nunchakus etc.
all this is just excuse so I could have nine tails Tails
There's nothing like a fresh cup of rage in the morning
Like, I'm yet to take that plunge pre-160, but from the snippets I've seen here, everyone talks near enough in the same voice and tone and then Knuckles turns into GodJesus because his father microwaved him or some dumb shit. And then gets da wimmen with the soultouch.
Not mythos, but...
What if Eggman ended up following Sonic into a storybook realm, set himself up as a powerful figure and created robots to replace said universe's mythological characters/monsters to re-write the story in his favor?
Sonic, and My Struggle.
Sonic and some Welsh Mythos. Take down a dragon, la, see you, bach.
I think there's more than just Llewellyn but we never got taught much. Hope you like English History they said as we got thrown King Henry the fucking 8th again.
Why do they insist on bringing back Wisps? Why not Chao, just have them as power-ups instead.
Practically nothing as far as actual Sonic content goes, other than a lot of speculation. First three news stories in the OP should get you caught up.
As for thread related dealings, we had a couple senpai stop by a few days ago.
Guys help i cant stop playing Sonic Runners i finally got it a few days ago. Ive got Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Espio, Vector, Silver, ESP Silver and Werehog and i neeed more.
I spent £35 on Red Rings
There has to be an easier methood of getting characters.
>spending money on Runners.
>spending $70 on Runners
>do some surveys and other shit
>get money added to google account
>use it on runners
>never use any of my actual money
>have every playable character so far, even the holiday special ones
How might Warpnik work in the comics?
I could almost see him as a Feist-lite character; some kind of crazed scientist lording over the Special Zone, devising all kinds of (usually fish or bird-themed) puzzles and traps to ensnare anyone who might enter his domain.
Of course, his relation to Eggman would have to be kept under wraps because of muh mandates, but they could at least throw a passing hint I'm sure.
Yeah, that would work quite well I feel. He could have been a scientist who was studying the magical properties of the emeralds/warp rings and got sucked in. It would be really cool/freaky to have him occasionally mutate his features like his hair did in the cartoon.
Either that or that 5th dimensional imp from DC: Mr Mxytzplik or whatever his name is. Basically an extradimensional fucker that shows up, causes really weird shit to happen, doesn't obey any laws of this reality, then fucks off, leaving the characters and audience confused and uncomfortable
The average survey gives out less than $1 and there's shit like "you must wait this amount of time before taking another one" but I wanna say it took me about a week to build up around $50. And I probably won't start doing this shit again until they add more characters to the game. Oh, and I don't give a shit about companions.
>He could have been a scientist who was studying the magical properties of the emeralds/warp rings and got sucked in
Perhaps "Cousin Robotnik" had something to do with it?
Wasn't that what happened to naugus in the comic canon ? along with a bunch of other, useless characters. (A ninja spider, really ? AND WHO WERE THE DADS ? SHE HAD LIKE, SIX CHILDREN FER CHRIST SAKE)
Ugh, if it wasn't for mandates we could see them in college together. Eggman getting jealous because old Kevin (I don't know, I'm trying to think of a clever name for him and failing) got all the girls and fame and caused a little 'accident' in the Anti-Mass Spectrometer...
I'm totally in for this one.However.... There were at least 4 other people with her.
Guess having several arms finaly had some uses...
Actually, that was SatAM. Pre-reboot, Naugus was already in there when Robotnik found in, and post-reboot he was banished the same time as King Acorn.
>(I don't know, I'm trying to think of a clever name for him and failing)
A few I've heard are
Ira, Warrenand Warporo. I also recall one or two AU stories that involve Warpnik being Maria's brother.
I don't see how that's any less wacky or whatever than a ninja chameleon. Granted, all I know about this ninja spider is that one anon tried to force her in these threads a while back.
Yeees, and no. The comic eventually took in some of the cartoon's backstories. Eggman ended up being the one trapping naugus in, along with the 'sigh" lion that was a warmaster to the king who also tried to take over with robotnik help.
guess he wasn't that smart.
I dunno... maybe the fact that espio is mainstream and she, was not ? I grew up with sonic X man.
Even better. She pulled a marie curie and died of cancer from too chaos radiation exposure in the zone of silence.. or maybe afterward, given how much of a shithole of pollution the fatass left his world in.
was penders is trying to tell us something ?
If I remember well, That idiot based almost most, if not all his character on people he knew or in his family. Heard he got mad when he learnt there were lewd of hershey around for that very reason.
Oh fuck... I remember now. His estranged dad died of cancer.
Women in sweaters and pantless are my fetish, anon.
>Oh fuck... I remember now. His estranged dad died of cancer.
Oh god that makes Locke's death in M25YL even funnier
>Women in sweaters and pantless are my fetish, anon.
Here you go
Now don't you love it when this thread delivers ?
Don't jinx it, Anon. This is the best news we've had all week.
> best news is supplementary material to the comics of a video game franchise
Just what do you think keeps these threads alive, m8?
Yup. And it's hilarious how Ian's handling of his death was far more tragic and had more weight than Penders' did, even though Penders based it off his own father
>or the fact Knuckles has no viable series without my set-up
I really hope I'm reading this wrong. I want to believe I'm reading this wrong.
Nope. He believes he's the reason Knuckles has fans or any character at all. Nevermind the fact that Fleetway gave him characterization and a supporting cast without going full retard. When this was brought up, he just said that "Europe is a different market"
No, actually, that would be me.
Key word being "would" but I have no idea at this point. Didn't really generate interest last thread, and I don't even know where to start. I've kind of lost motivation right now.
"Insert rant about penders's 'It'snever my faul'" tendencies"
Wow, you gave up pretty fast. Go for it anon, the interest will be naturally garnered when you have something to show of your effort. There's tons of sprites that you can use and whatnot
Just don't make it turn based.
>tfw you became a Knuckles fan from the games
He reminded me of myself. A gullible dumbass.After picking up the comics I couldn't see how that garbage could turn anyone into a Knuckles fan.
Funny you mention that
It's because he thought he added "Depth and intrigue" to not only him, but to the comic at large by adding hundreds of pointless characters
>I don't even know where to start
Plot? Characters? Setting? Engine? Come on man, it's elementary.
Have you ever made a game :^)
Nah I just made these for fun.
It might also be useful for my little Flash animation soon or later
I have never been here before, and I'm not coming back, but I'm here to say that I just bought Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and damn, that game is fucking great. Why does no one talk about this gem? On /v/, I mean.
Haven't had this much frustrated fun (doing the Battle Races) in a long time.
Hm, you're probably right. I might give it a shot, but I'd need to get a few things out of the way, first.
For instance, I still need to learn my way around RPG Maker. Shouldn't be too hard; there are plenty of tutorials around and I can fiddle around with base game assets to kind of get a feel for what I have to work with. Depending on how that goes, I'll see about finding scripts for real-time combat and other things. Really it all gets down to what you'd want to see out of a Sonic RPG.
>Get reminded of this one guy on Sonic Stadium who theorized that Sonic Rush, Sonic 06, and both of the Sonic Rivals game were supposed to be the actual S06/SA3 and they were that way because lol Sega's managment
>Maybe they're actually going back to that idea, of sonic, shadow and blaze going dimensions, fighting both Eggman and Nega and a fire based monsters eating dimensions because chaos emeralds and sol emeralds shenanigans
>Nega tries to convince Shadow to use the time stones to go back and save maria to further his own plans
>Them doing an actual SA3, if it's good, would actually kill two birds in one stone: 1. sonic's reputation rises a bit like with generations ; 2. people would stop calling S06 SA3 and will remain "that one bad sonic game that has sonic adventure elements"
>Maybe, some years after 06 was released, someone in sega or iizuka said "we could retry this" and they thought about it for a long time, and once they started thinking about generations and after the reception was made they said "alright, let's do this shit, by avoiding the mistakes of yesterday", which would make the rumor of "let's release that spin off lost world first while we're still working on SA3 because we don't want to screw this up" true
>Big becomes the shopkeeper of the game
>Eggman Nega is renamed Dr.Nega, where instead of being egg-shaped he's upside-down vase based
>Eggman Nega was off-limits because they were working on him this whole time
>Big gets a fishing minigame
which is a DLC
I want to believe this because I legit want a legit good adventure game, I saw their potential with SA1 and 2 and I can't stop imagining S3&K in 3D with more depths into it.
>Implying SEGA cares that much about their games for that to happen.
I'm thinking about that post the Sonic Twitter hinting for the 1st of April.
I'd laugh my ass off if they announce SA3 at this day and the next day they're like "made ya look this is true"
>yfw it's just another game with a new playstyle/gimmick that no one asked for
>yet another wacky adventure with Sonic and Tails with horrible "jokes" and fake tension
Severely underrated track tbqh. Is that Biowarefag here? Please tell me you have a clean version of this laying about somewhere.
No idea, really. It's a shame. Chronicles had its share of bad stuff, yeah, but it wasn't terrible. I thought the use of continuity was great, and I found the Nocturnus a lot more compelling that Penders' creations My only regret is they didn't make use of Gemerl with all the Gizoids running about, and the game itself kind of went downhill after you went in the Twilight Cage.
>Charyb and Scylla try to sway Gemerl into joining them
Yes though once you get Ferox you don't have to do the rhythm bullshit. Moves will be automatically performed, you know, like a normal RPG.
Once you get the hang of them they can be fun sometimes. One of my favorites to do was Atomic Strike with Sonic and Shadow. Fucking doing any of Creams though. That's who you equip Ferox to asap.
>tfw SU82 was posted here two months ago.
Zip it, porcupine. We /fast/ now.
B-but we don't allow lewd things in this general!
No, no! It's perfectly safe lewd.
Trust me, I'm a doctor.
You know, you see the same thing with fancharacters, at least back in day. I wonder if the two are separate but related phenomena, or if the comics are the cause in fancharacters.
If I had to guess, it happens when trying to make characters more relatably human, so they slap some clothes on there because humans usually wear clothes. Of course, then you've got examples like Sally where they just followed other Sonic character designs and didn't give her any clothes, but then it later became a consistent thing to have female characters fully clothed and just male characters with the "gloves and shoes" look. Which is really just following Disney conventions.
If you pay attention over the course of the Knuckles series despite all the coloring mistakes, Knuckles' dad is dressed like a Jedi, whereas the stepfather is dressed like Darth Vader.
Oh jesus christ this puts a whole new spin on things
He's a Star Trek nut and makes a point of that.
There's a twitter post somewhere when someone asks him about the blatant Millennium Falcon in the comic in response to "acceptable references" bullshit in regards to Chronicles, then he just shits on about being one of the people to watch the first episodes of Star Trek on such and such date.
He briefly worked on a Star Trek comic before getting the boot, apparently due to time/quality issues.
There are tons of Star Wars/Trek references in the Knuckles series, but Penders will have you know that he didn't actually do any of that himself, it was either the artist's fault entirely or just coincidence. Just like how the Sonic issue (on which "the hedgehog" is crossed out and replaced with "the fugitive") in which he's chased down by the equivalent of a fed for the framed murder of his girlfriend comes to a head with him jumping from a waterfall JUST LIKE IN THE FUGITIVE has absolutely NOTHING to do with The Fugitive.
This. If nothing from the plot, this design is something from Chronicles that needs to be in the comic.
>There are tons of Star Wars/Trek references in the Knuckles series, but Penders will have you know that he didn't actually do any of that himself, it was either the artist's fault entirely
Don't writers have to approve the art before it goes to print.
>You said your Star Wars references are tribute, so didn't Bioware just tribute your works?
>I'm a Trekkie
>But still, they were totally honoring your work, right?
>I don't like Star Wars
Pretty much any question towards Penders will be answered in the way that answers the actual question the least. When there's no extra information in the wording for him to go off of, he just starts making stuff up. Penders-Tracker-Anon, I'm sure you've got some examples saved.
