NOT A CHANCE, SLOTH-GIRL!
What do you think of Egg Robo as a character? As in going from standard mook to taking Eggman's place as the better than Eggman boss fights to finally being murdered in the end? (Did Mecha Sonic kill the flicky too or...?)
I think this dynamic was attempted in Sonic Heroes, but goes back all the way to the original classic series.
Should there be more Egg Robo?
Hey big guy
Reminder that Big is the secret Twelfth Egg Boss and Snively is a red herring.
I don't know if I'd call Egg Robo a standard mook in the first place. They only show up in Sky Sanctuary and are launched from the Death Egg. If anything, I'd say they're like a proto E-100 series, a group of more specially designed Badniks.
yeah too bad it's my only good pic of them together
No it's Madonna
But what if that EggRobo was never a standard mook, hmm? HMMM?
We butt rock now.
>>127887943 That would be an interesting "Comic Reboot Canon" explanation, and perhaps certainly explain the final Egg Robo having no flicky.
But just to stay in game canon, Egg Robo was obliterated on the spot. Oddly enough, he wasn't prepared for a final fight with Knuckles, so I'm guessing he might have thought using Mecha Sonic to finish the job.
Need more Donna, need more gals in jumpsuits
Oh he's going to eat her, all right...
Sloth meat is terrible. You should
eat the deer sisters.
Now, Bump on the other hand has a little more thickness to her...perhaps she'd be more suited to the doctor's tastes?
> this Cream
I know who is to blame...
Which Sonic character would make the best dad and why is it Omega?
Depends on which iteration. It's been bad at least twice (everything burning because of the Iblis or Ifrit), but in the DS version of Colors he said everything was fine.
The current comic canon gave us Onyx City, a dystopian future ruled by a jerkass City Council. It was nearly wrecked by the Council's Genesis Portal shenanigans.
But yeah, I operate the same way, mostly because that's how I treated the Master System/Game Gear versions of the classic games. Then again, those are so different that you can treat them as entirely different events, which seems to be how the comics are using them.
Why do you like this rat?
Well, Amy has one, doesn't she? I don't think she has any spikes.
>I'd say they're like a proto E-100 series, a group of more specially designed Badniks.
Considering they don't use an animal battery they could also be a prototype to the E-1001 series.
Well fuck me
meant to obviously say Mecha Sonic
there is S3&K Ending SFM film
>5 more days until Wednesday
How do you plan on wasting your time until then?
But...didn't EggRobos use animal batteries? The regular ones did, anyway. Only one that didn't to my knowledge was the one in Knuckles' game.
I'm not sure I agree about them being prototype Egg Pawns either. The E-1000 Series onward primarily consists of mass produced units designed to be cheap and easy to build (which is why there are so many variants), whereas EggRobos (created at a time where Eggman most likely built most of his robots by hand) were more specialized units. I imagine the doc stopped using animals because it became too costly for him.
>didn't EggRobos use animal batteries?
When the EggRobo was destroyed in S3&K no animal came out.
And the EggPawns lack features compared to the EggRobos. They can't fly and they apparently seem dumber. Cheap and easy to build compared to the prototype EggRobo.
Ah, sorry. You have me confused. I was talking about the EggRobo enemies you fight in Sky Sanctuary. Those all have animals in them.
"The" EggRobo you refer to is the one from Knuckles' story. Correct, he did not have an animal inside and was likely an advanced prototype.
If there's someone who could do it, it'd probably be Phage.
That is - Assuming she wasn't already one to begin with. She's so darn mysterious...who knows where she came from?
What's the appeal in the Archie comics? Sonic is basically like my entire childhood and shit (SA2B was the first video game I ever owned) so a few days ago I thought to myself "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if Sonic had an actual deep story to it?" so I checked out the Archie comics.
My first thoughts where "what the fuck is this disney furry bullshit?" which were soon replaced by "what the fuck is this shitty Sonic fanfiction?"
Maybe I'm just too spoiled by muh 2deep4u weebshit
>This is eps 1 and 2 combined, improved and abridged
Can you imagine the how rad the Axem Rangers battle is going to be?
Where did you start? If you want to see what all the fuss is about, either start at 160 (start of Ian Flynn's run) or 252 (Start of the current continuity). Though I personally recommend starting at #1 and going all the way through for the full experience and using pic related as a guide

good night /sthg/
You two are supposed to be at each others necks, never backing down or compromising despite knowing your faults for no other reason but to beat an anonymous stranger on the internet!
What is this niceness and polite bullshit?
Is there any Sonic character sexier than Eggman? I think not.
It has to be a classic Sonic thing.
Or we're getting two games and SA3 is HAPPENING
So, last time we went classic mode we got Sonic 4, which wasn't THAT bad but it could have been something much better.
And then classic Sonic in generations, I'd have played a whole game with that, just longer.
I feel that we're gonna get a fairly easy game with no story and no new interesting characters, only Sonic playable, possibly Tails, and possibly some awesome music.
Who knows, maybe it'll be GOTY and Chao Garden comes back and they have an intertwining story and the difficulty is ramped up to 11, but it's wishful thinking on my part.
>I feel that we're gonna get a fairly easy game with no story and no new interesting characters, only Sonic playable, possibly Tails, and possibly some awesome music.
This will probably be what will happen. Only it'll just be playable sonic.
Look at that depressed chipmunk bear thing in the car.
He had enough of life like 15 years ago and he's still going. The 1000 yard stare, not even registering the two pedestrians. The car you can tell he still hasn't paid off.
That there is one sad mobian.
Eh I'm going to bead so I'm going to leave you people with this parting gift
I could've swore I heard the title somewhere before...jesus, how long has it been?
Which is why Eggman is the superior world leader choice.
YOU WANNA GO, M8?

That origins story can't come soon enough.
Let's take it one step further
>Eggman becomes enraged by the kid's death and forces her to have kids until she has one that doesn't have the disease
SU83 can't come soon enough either. Thankfully things seem to be getting somewhat back in order with SU82 coming out
Do you have a hedgehog shrine?
I've been lurking these threads for quite some time but I very seldom see any pictures of merch and related stuff. Why don't we get some pics going of such things?
>Eggman doesn't have roboticization now.
In Axel's first appearance he refers to rumors that Eggman has gotten a roboticizer up and running again. No way in hell Ian is dropping something like that in, even as a throwaway comment, if it's not going to be relevant eventually, even if it's not for a few more years.
Right about Cassia though, it's just her facial implants.
EGGMAN IS IMPREGNATING EVERYBODY
I have a blue runner man on my speaker in the livingroom.
I've got loads of other stuff as well, but It's scattered all over my apartment.
I could see Thunderbolt being a strict, authoritarian mother; often ordering her kids around like they her subordinates. Genuinely cares about them, though, (mostly because of their father...) and would go full mama bear if they were in danger.
Neph would probably be a cool, fair mom. Loves her kids, and would try her best to distance them from their father.
Clove would likely be a protective mother, but nowhere near as crazy as Thunderbolt. Not sure if Cassia would/could have kids, on account of her illness.
Conquering Storm would be a terrible mother, and would probably groom and manipulate her children for her own ends.
No idea about squidgirl.
>No idea about squidgirl.
I'm really curious what her personality is, considering we've got crazy, motherly, and sympathetic under the belt already. Not to mention warrior schtick with Conquering Storm.
Wait a second, on that note. I've noticed a trend with the reboot that there's more of a gender balance with the Egg bosses, and if that was indeed on purpose, then the last Egg boss could very well be female (Cassia is technically not counted as an Egg Boss if the solicits to part 4 of Eggman's Dozen are true and the 12th one hasn't been revealed)
People really like making Sonic leaks.
Its like Smash Bros.
That's one of the possible answers I've been thinking of. The other is
MadonnaOnly reason I say that is that we know very little about her other than she's in the counter intelligence unit, and that Eggman doesn't have someone in the United Federation at the moment. It's a tie between her, Snively, and Wendy for being my picks, though I'd argue that Wendy would likely be an ex one since she's fighting Eggman in the arc
>exploring modern abandoned buildings
Why the fuck was this never in any sonic games?
That's a decent reason. Another reason, that I just remembered, that I think it's Madonna, that maybe it's just me, but her accepting Snively's story at face value just seemed a bit sketchy, but maybe that's just me
We now return to "The Life and Times of my Master Plan."
Today, I am happy to announce Momma Robotnik's departure from the family fortress - which means Ivo finally gets his bedroom back. Winter will be over soon, leaving new opportunities in the upcoming new year. Schemes to plot, robots to build...Oh, what fun we'll have!
I might even send the good doctor abroad to spread his reign to other parts of the world. Where shall he go first? China? Egypt? France? I'll let you decide!
I'm afraid Slavlands are off-limits. The World Adventures expansion only gives us three travel locations...all of which I'd previously mentioned. It's either a choice between China, Egypt or France.
Sorry for the mixup.
Good idea! Love those Pyramids. Maybe we'll find the long lost tomb of Robotnikhotep?
In the meantime, I'll work on Hope and Shadow's relationship.
Considering he was just born yesterday, we've got a lot of ground to tread.
Anyone remember that really shitty fan film that was supposed to come out but got canned? Well it just came up again
What's the worst Sonic OC in existence?
Hard mode: No Sonichu or other well known awful ones.
EXTREME MASOCHIST MODE: Also name one good Sonic OC.
>What's the worst Sonic OC in existence?
>What's the worst Sonic OC in existence?
Oh that one's too easy, Sonich-
>Hard mode: No Sonichu or other well known awful ones.
EXTREME MASOCHIST MODE: Also name one good Sonic OC.
Most people tend to think that all OC's is inherently bad. I disagree. The problem lies with execution, not the concept itself; Most creators who have OC's are uninspired, and tend to put them at the center of whatever story they make up for themselves - where all the events in that world revolve around their character(s), and would often overshadow the main cast. Most OC-driven stories are outright horrible, and understandably so.
To me, an OC done "right" would have to be one that is designed to exist in a world that can live on without them - A world for them to conform to, not the other way around.
It's possible, but you don't see it very often. Doesn't help that most get shit on because "hurr durr ocs are garbage"
How DO Black Arms reproduce anyways? They are a hivemind (Or at least very similar to one) , with a more advanced one serving as a "queen" of sorts. But at the same time they have more variety than the average alien hivemind (Like the Xorda for instance) and operate weaponry.
Will this do for now?
So Thunderbolt is short-tempered, loyal, vengeful and mean.
Clove is practical, analytical and caring despite not showing it outwardly too much.
Nephthys is motherly but a bit narrow-minded and defeatist/hopeless.
C. Storm is probably still got a bit of a cold/cruel streak and has no patience for weakness but respects power and strength (unless she's been majorly changed).
So Squidgirl...I know we only have a cover and a couple sketches, but maybe she's more on the fun side? Like Cassia a little, but if she's actually in a position of authority, probably smarter without the brattiness. I'm leaning towards this because on the other side of the spectrum is even colder and more blunt, and she just doesn't look the part IMO.
>Realize some anon posted it 3 days ago
>Newgrounds, Alvins twitter and Youtube say it's new today
I don't get it, was that anon a time traveler or something?
They seem to grow out of pods/eggs or something...maybe they turn consumed flesh into building material for the next generation.
Given the Black Arms seem to be mostly drones with a monster in charge, they're probably technically nongender/asexual.
Turns out it wasn't just a fever dream from two threads ago.

April Fool's joke
That may be an announcement, but I'm not holding my breath
Sega didn't give a shit for a loooong time, and kind of let the comics do their own thing.
I wish they kept the Sonic Synergy logo, even with a different name.
always loved that set of pictures... they're kind of my dream city, literally
the literal city of my dreams has a lot of neon like that (no Sonic or anything, just a lot of bright lights of all colors)
I have to agree. I love that kind of aesthetic and it fits Sonic to a T. I'd love to see a level with that theme in a future game. It just screams "Sonic" and I don't know why
Would get annoying very quickly. Speaking from experience, overdoses of neon and LEDs kill your eyes at night. They need to be used in moderation alongside more traditional lighting.
Considering he left after all the flack/death threats he received after Lost World (because obviously a SoA blogger has so much influence over a Japanese-developed game), then came back in a flame of memes and zero giving of shits, I'm sure he'll be fine.
Sorry. I tend to give them the same filenames the original artists do (With some exceptions, like when the artist doesn't give them a filename)
I found these, but I didn't feel like I could stitch them.

Never happening. Apparently Jun and Johnny don't care for the style. (Or there might be legal stuff involved, who knows.)
I'm just glad they never did a cover of Reach for the Stars.
Women get bushes down below~
But Eclipse isn't a drone. He's a unique specimen; free-thinking, and exists outside the Black Arms collective. He could survive without Black Death or the rest of their hivemind. Not to mention, he was basically bred to be their own version of Shadow. We don't know how much his physiology differs from the rest of their "race".
Thunderbolt- if she wouldn't kill me, that is. If not,
Does Ian's theory about the Time Eater being the undead form of Mephiles/Solaris still hold? Shit would be so cash.

And fucked that up on a level previously thought impossible, so the point about it not having a chao garden is moot anyways
GET A LOAD OF THIS~"
Because fate is a cruel mistress.
You know, I often wonder...what if the ARK wasn't shut down, all those years ago? What if Gerald had succeeded in curing her NIDS? Would Eggman have still aspired to become the same mad scientist he is, today?
Would Maria still be alive, and with Shadow?
>Would Eggman have still aspired to become the same mad scientist he is, today?
That really does depend on what turned him evil in the first place.
>Would Maria still be alive, and with Shadow?
Without a doubt, and it'd certainly make the return of the Black Arms more interesting
>Maria and shadow visiting earth for the first time.

fifty years laters....
You are my sunshine..........
>That really does depend on what turned him evil in the first place.
We know it was one of the reasons. As a boy, he looked up to his grandfather's research and wanted to be a scientist, just like him. He believed Gerald was wrongfully executed, and likely blamed the government for his death. Eventually, he got the idea that everyone would be better off listening to him, and began his plans.
I imagine Robotnik's original vision of the Eggman Empire was a scientist version of Outer Heaven.
