Post thing that won't happen but you want to happen
Also a Guilty Gear style fighting game with the Sonic cast that has characters from all continuities and has a soundtrack by Jun Senuoue and Daisuke Ishiwatari
A one on one fight between these 2 until one is either knocked out or taps-out. Preferably a fight inside a wrestling/boxing ring.
Characters I really liked to come back.
>Tails and Silver will never have this kind of relationship
Momma Robotnik arc for the comics
>Hard to tell with Metal, but that one attack in CD puts him ahead of Sonic every time.
It also burns him out really quickly, so he can briefly do it, but he can't sustain ito
This anon gets it
ok since I got some movement to this thread
let's keep the ball rolling
I would post pender/waifu/husbando roll but I am not desiring to get banned
See now super secret shit you only unlock from getting all emeralds and time stones sounds fucking brilliant, but it's 2016, skill based unlocks are extinct. It'd be more like
>extra dlc levels
>super ending boss
>only get there if you buy it
>hard mode with loads of options to make it easier.
I'd love an official release along the lines of S3+K Complete. Especially something where you play through the genesis games sequentially as one game and sonic 'learns' the spindash as a reward for finishing 1, and you need to collect all of the emeralds and time stones to unlock extra secret shit as mentioned prior.
That would be fucking amazing. 10/10 goty would play.
maybe since sega acknowledge archie we could get unlockable archie skins or playable characters (I'd even take them as DLC) or stages or something?
>Your friend accidentally dies in a race
>They get a special attack upon respawn and use it when you have no rings
>You respawn and use your own attack
>It's just an endless loop of both of you dying to each other's special attacks
Still the best multiplayer in the series
>Sonic and Bunnie pose as a couple to infiltrate a casino zone establishment, when a bumper shield based security badnik goes haywire due to a rogue hacker type trying to 'fix' the machines to pay out. Sonic and Bunnie in tux and cocktail dress realise they can't brute strength the badnik and work up a big plan to outsmart it and when that fails they convince the hacker to fix the badnik with a heartfelt plea which works. The casino then hires the hacker to work for them as security and the hacker and badnik become a duo, brains and the brawn of the casino. Story ends with Sonic/Amy Bunnie/Twan in fancy clothes hanging out in the casino, eating fancy meal.
>Story title something like: The House always Wins
There is nothing about this I don't like. Where are the senpais when you need them?
>I know the M.E gave Scourge some more power but was it ever enough to defeat Sonic?
Maybe or maybe not since Scourge was always a cheap-shoting little prick but guess we'll never know thanks to a certain douchebag and his enchiladas
That post that you replied to was removed
>Shadow's multiplayer as better
No. It was 90 percent "try to find the other Shadow clone because the maps are too fucking big" I'll give you the Riders games, as well as SASASRT.
>That post that you replied to was removed
I don't even expect anything from janitors anymore and I'm still getting pissed off with them
>it was picture of future Trunks and future Gohan
I have had enough swatbots for tonight
good night /sthg/
Speaking of Heroes multiplayer experience
>Sonic Heroes Action Race
>me and bro always saved the Team blast
to be a complete dick to each other and use it over that last jump before the goal ring
>Get raped by Breezie
Will she televise it?
IIRC, they've outright said that "Ivo Robotnik" is his real name and "Eggman" is his alias for world-conquering purposes. Even then, his grandfather (Gerald) and cousin (Maria) both had the "Robotnik" surname, so it stands to reason that he'd be a Robotnik too.
>Get a lap dance from Big.
This just in: One unknown male was killed in a freak accident at a strip club, where a severely overweight cat crushed all of his bones during a lap dance. According to eyewitnesses, the man in question was forced into it by some sort of bizarre "birthday scenario game". We'll have more on this story as it develops.
Overthinking the idea of a Sonic MMO some more.
>Six classes. You get to choose one main one, and a secondary one which is weaker, but still influences the skills and abilities your character gets.
>Speed (characters like Sonic)
>Power (Knuckles, Big, etc)
>Skill (Amy and others that use melee weapons fall into this.)
>Tech (Characters that rely on gadgets and/or gunplay fall into this.)
>Psi (Silver and other characters with powers of that sort.)
Kill me. I'm going to go full retard at this rate because my brain won't stop overthinking things.
Eggman Empire is best faction
>We'll never get these songs in high quality
No classes. Get rid of the class system. Instead, build the thing as a giant platformer with branching paths out the ass. You get attributes like speed, jump, etc. and a skill system for stuff like spin dash, boost, punches, etc. so people can build the characters they want instead of being shoved into classes.
>QUESTLINE TO BETRAY GOOD GUYS AND BECOME A ROBOT
>GAIN NEW SKILLS AND SICK SHINY CHROME
I didn't know how much I wanted this until now.
>>128278847 Is Breeze even a robot in the Archie comics? For some reason I remember a scene in the comics with her carrying or drinking a champagne glass, and I thought, "there goes all the potential for a dynamic sexy robot woman like in AoSTH"
>Is Breeze even a robot in the Archie comics?
That has yet to be seen and that's likely on purpose. I think it's more fun to keep it ambiguous for a while.
And it'd be even more fun if she turned out to be a robot and she didn't know it
No problems seeing them on my end. Sorry, anon.
I had it for a split-second on Chrome, but it fixed when I refreshed. Saw a bunch of giant pics of the buttons on the player. Odd.
>This entire issue
Fucking why. Dulcy's first appearence in almost 30 issues and she's there to be a walking PSA for domestic abuse. Why is every appearence of her terrible in some way
Become roommates with Vanilla? Well that could work. We are both consenting adults after all. Maybe a little wine, a little music, and we see where tomorrow finds us.
What if when you complete the New mainline console Sonic game you unlock a remastered version of Sonic 3 that looked like this
Only with you know, better models and stuff?
Fuck Sonic Adventure 3, Sonic Unleashed 2 should happen.
That is completely true. She was shit in SaTAM and shit whenever she showed up in the comics. Hopefully she's not shit when 281 rolls around
You know Penders, making everything into a "GREAT MYSTERY" and having everyone be incredibly vague doesn't add suspense. It just makes it fucking annoying to read
>Become best friends with Sally Acorn
Maybe she'd give me the drive to do more than shitpost. She'd probably be a pretty inspirational motherfucker.
Holy shit, this fucking artist
Somethings are best left forgotten.
Best part is that he sides with the Dark Legion because "They can save everyone" or some shit.. It's dumb, and then Lara Su comes and just acts mysterious and "OMG that's my dad" and shit
You know, the period from 100 to 130 really isn't that bad. There is a lot of stupidity and the art is terrible don't get me wrong, but at the same time there are some real gems hidden in that period and at worst, Bollers' stuff during that period is bad, but never truly horrible. But Penders' stuff is still agressively awful
All right gang, lets place some bets!
Thirty Rings says Naugus jobs to Kukku again in "Eggman's Dozen."
Why did it take so long for Art Mawhinney to leave the fucking comic? Why was he incapable of drawing the updated designs for the characters? Why did he make everyone look so fucking bad
For those that care. Also new solicits should be rolling in within the next week, so that should be fun
I am fucking flabbergasted by how bad this art is. This entire issue has terrible art and is a straight up adaptation of an episode. This is the literal definition of fucking filler. Why is this never brought up as one of the terrible parts of the Dark Ages
Where is this cute art from?
Modern Sonic looks cute as always
It probably is brought up rarely for its atrocious art. Who wrote that issue?
What it obviously Penders?
>It probably is brought up rarely for its atrocious art. Who wrote that issue? What it obviously Penders?
Bollers is credited, but the real credit should go to Pat Atlee, since it's LITERALLY BEAT FOR BEAT THE EPISODE "Cry of the Wolf".
That flaming uppercut Kunckles does? It's his version of the Dragon Wing.
As for a Yakuza nod......
>The Tojo clan throws in with Eggman
>Kiryu has to beat the shit out of them AGAIN to fix things
Anyone here have this or the bootleg?
I ordered the latter for 10 dorra on ebay and want to know what to expect.
>watching Johnny stream
>editting a shitty trainer template
>messing around on my femboy account
Pretty chill night.
>he's gonna look at the handheld games and redo his Chronicles and Unleashed reviews
There's some hope for this year.
Outside of Clement's Sonic LPs, oddly enough, speedruns. They make for comfy viewing
Archie is my favorite, but I like all of them, including Boom (Except the Boom games, they're shit)
Segas official new renaming
Boom is now Modern
Modern is now Legacy
Classic is now Pixel
Archie is now Comic Book
Webber wanted to see how much butt damage he could cause just by renaming them.
Or, you know, it's named those in the article because it's heared towards people that don't know about Sonic, and Modern's been called Legacy only once, and it was half a year ago
The fact that Sega still cares about Boom and isn't throwing it to the curb like other failed projects is enough to make me like them more than I ever have
For the sake of argument; assuming that having an OC is not autistic in and of itself, what would make an OC autistic?
Other than the obvious things like made out of recolored art(Official or otherwise), long lost relative of any official character, stronger/faster/smarter/etc than any official character in their area of expertise, and I can't think of anything else off the top of my head at the moment.
Sorry to bother you, /sthg/ but I don't feel like making a thread on /co/ just to ask this.
> Publication date 21 Jul 2016
>Paperback – July 5, 2016
>same with Sonic Universe 9 and every Megaman TP
Have the trade paperbacks been delayed AGAIN?
I feel a lot of people have at one point or another.
But as it's been said back and forth in the past few threads, the autistic part varies, and tends to weigh on skill of the artist. Most are uninteresting, uninspired and downright laughable...but occasionally you might come upon something half-way decent. Most immediately shot down by the "hurr durr ocs are garbage"-end all argument, but that can be equally autistic.
>implying you'd ever have to
If there's one thing Eggman is good at, it's games. The only one he can't seem to win is that against a certain blue hedgehog.
I don't even know what's happening, anymore
Ýou know, I actually thought of an idea like this recently.
Basically the plot would be something along the lines of Sonic and Co are chilling when a bunch of robots from other continuities start invading the planet through these portal holes things. (Kinda like the Genesis Portals.) Eventually, Sonic and Co go in one of the portals and end up in some high tech facility where they meet this dude who might as well be Zonic. He tells them that someone/something is invading and screwing up not only Sonic's world, but a lot of other worlds as well. So Sonic and co travel through all the different continuities, meet themselves and characters not of their world, and have a bunch of interactions.
I kinda envisioned it to be a blend of 2D platforming/fighting/beat 'em up. There would be a lot of characters to play as, as well as one or two who could provide support, though it would be optional. If I knew how to program and make games, I would consider making it myself.
My point exactly. People can mindlessly rave about OC's all they want, but that doesn't make their argument anymore tangible. If anything it just makes them look even more like total spurgs.
Me and my friends made some OCs for a table top game. End boss of it all was a normal Egg Pawn, most of the group ended up dead by the end of it. No idea if we overpowered the pawn or if it'd really be like that, but we didn't want our characters near the official characters power levels, we just wanted them to be "normal".
Hit enter too soon. Basically we wanted our characters to be like NPCs, normal people, not the super heroes Sonic characters normally are.
But with the way Sonic games are going anyone not named Sonic or Eggman are basically just NPCs now.
Okay, what was the campaign then? Cause I'm having a hard time picturing anything that's not an ordinary bunch of furries being citizens and occasionally getting buttfucked by Eggman.
>what was the campaign then?
This was a long ass time ago, so memory's fuzzy.
Sum it up best I can remember; small town they all lived in out in the middle of bumfuck nowhere gets fucked hard by Eggman's army. All of our characters just had to run, survive, and avoid badniks while trying to get to territory not under Eggman's control. That one Eggpawn was the only badnik they ever directly confronted.
It was the first and last Sonic themed campaign we did, I think.
I don't know either. I think I've been checking these paperbacks for like a year now (in one month it truly will have been a year), only to see then delayed further every time I've checked them. Last ones I got were Scourge Lockdown and The Chase. And I got them both with the last Mega Man one.
Whoa, that's the second creepiest Eggbotnik I've seen, after those horrifying AoSTh Robotnik Gozer the Destroyer illustrations.
I was the only one that had even heard of Sonic before that campaign. So none of them knew the series' reputation at the time. I just let them play the games I had, I think the newest game was Heroes at the time, and got them interested. Also the only Sonic things other than the games I knew about was SatAM, had no idea the other two cartoons or the Archie comics even existed. None of us had internet at the time. So our knowledge was really limited
That was also our 3rd or so, some really early number like that, game so none of us really knew what the hell we were doing.
After that game we just went back to Star Wars themed games.
Well hope you enjoyed my blog post.
>Whoa, that's the second creepiest Eggbotnik I've seen, after those horrifying AoSTh Robotnik Gozer the Destroyer illustrations.
Might wanna add this one to your list.
>Robotnik the fish
Don't tell Warpnik
Would sega ever stop releasing their games to the west?
They never receive well over here, and it's actually more appropriate for people to shit on sonic games as much as possible.
If I was Sega, I'd probably have stopped localizing them.
>They never receive well over here, and it's actually more appropriate for people to shit on sonic games as much as possible.
They still sell much better here than they do in Japan. Sonic's always had some popularity in the west, especially compared to Japan, and considering that they kind of murdered everything that wasn't Sonic, Football manager, and Miku, refusing to localize shit is suicide
But Sonic has a much, much bigger audience in the West, hasn't it? Like >>128329549 said, Sonic games sell like shit in Japan.
>Become friends with tails
I'm ok with this
The entire Saga was nonsense. First he's going crazy with power for almost ten issues, then he's fine and tries to change the past a few times, then his status quo is restored and we're treated to a dumb story about his future-daughter, then he's just chillaxin' when Mammoth Mogul shows up and they both die.
And then he comes back from the dead and just turns red again. It was like OVER TWO YEARS of Knuckles being green for no good reason.
Most of Bollers' run is a series of train-of-thought stories meant to clean up all of Ken's abandoned subplots with self contained stories that aren't that bad lumped in between. I really wish he gave fewer shits, because the entire reason Sonic Adventure through the 140s sucked is because half of every issue was Ken's stagnant soap opera and the other half was usually a bunch of cleanup work. His standalone writing was pretty good, aside from his "Benny Lee" stories, but he always got paired with lazy artists.
Every single Knuckles story by Ken after Knux #21 is pointless, even if you care about the Knuckles Lore. If you only read Sonic #13, Knux's mini and issues 1-21, Sonic #58, Julie's story in GURLS RULE, and then never read another story written by Ken (meaning that you jump immediately to Karl's Return to Angel Island and then once more to the start of Ian's run), the Knuckles story doesn't change at all.
Every character and event is set up (Gala-Na, Lien-Da, Elias) and any confusion later on ("Knuckles lost his powers? He had a fight with Gala-Na?") is easily chalked up to the time skip. The story actually reads far BETTER, as there's FAR less fluff and fewer shitty cliffhangers. That's to say nothing of the main comic, that loses over 50 issues of bullshit in the process.
What I'm getting at is, regardless of our opinions of him, pretending Ken never existed actually improves your reading experience.
Ancient robots with crazy copy abilities. What's not to love?
Wish we'd see more of them, but they're tied to Chronicles so I'm not sure how that would play out. At least we have Gemerl.
>Get raped by Sally
This. Hell, when reading the Dark Ages again, I've realized just how fucking superfluous Ken's stories are to everything. Everything after Endgame by him either concerns Great War wank, Echidna bullshit, or when Bollers leaves, completely irrelevant bullshit (Even then that's also applicable to stuff like the GURLS RUUUUUULE special) Pretending Ken's stuff doesn't exist not only improves the reading experience, but it also affects practically nothing
Do you guys ever get the feeling that if Sonic did just stop getting games, that within a year the same people that shat on the franchise left and right would cry for Sega to bring it back?
>go on a date with sally.
As long as she doesn't decide to cook.
What would someone like Sally even want to do on a date?
>What would someone like Sally even want to do on a date?
One thing that bothers me is that the Brotherhood isn't all that bad if you cut about half of them and rearrange their order. It's actually really easy to repurposed them as backstory that ties into Knuckles' themes of responsibility, history, naivete and mistrust.
Like, hell, let's see if we can outdo Ken on the spot. You start with Edmund, right? Brother of Dimitri, effectively saves his homeland from Enerjak but dies.
Then you get Hawking. He's riding high on the legacy of his father. He's an egotistical, bigoted piece of shit and publicly chastizes, mocks and humiliates his cousin Menniker for Dimitri's legacy. This leads to Menniker creating a sort of cult of protection to vindicate his father and shield citizens from the scourge of spirits and mysticism with the power of technology.
Hawking's selfish bullshit and bigotry leads to the enemies of the Echidnas fucking decimating them. The Legion, hastily taken over by Menniker's son Moritori and turned into a proper Borg-Cult, tries to start a civil war. Hawking seals them in a pocket dimension. The Echidnas loathe Hawking but need his technological knowhow, so he's secluded himself and stews in his bitterness while advancing society. His daughter, Athair's mother, essentially becomes the first Guardian by helping the Echidnas rebuild society. Athair ends up becoming a hermit and leads Echidnas on pilgrimages to settle new land, his son Tobor returns to the Guardian post and is brainwashed by the Legion, leading to him covertly killing his grandmother.
Brainwashed Tobor is a distant father and tries to have his son legionized in secret, Spectre is distant to his son Locke in turn, which leads to Locke mistrusting family and technology, completely abandoning Knuckles in the hopes that being alone would lead to something better than what his heritage has made Locke (a bitter, paranoid recluse).
Oh, and Knuckles' mom is dead, because her just not being around is done.
That was pretty damn easy.
>What would someone like Sally even want to do on a date?
Go out to a nice dinner then sit at home and watch shitty martial arts movies with her as she cuddles up with you on the couch?
>9/11 is switch bodies with Jet
The experience would be explosive
I swear that wasn't intentional when I made the game.
>become roommates with Wave
What's the deal with people calling Archie Sonic multiversal or something?
I don't think I've seen a character getting wanked so much since Ban Mido.
Should've used more sports tape.
You mean so powerful that they literally destroy reality powerful?
That kind of shit usually goes into the trash immediately if I see it.
or you could take the oh no route and draw
>Characters with very little art
I got just the thing
That could work. Would you like to see her with someone else or would you prefer to see a solo piece?
Looks interesting. I'll be happy to try her out if you have any ideas.
Can you give me a reference of her for me to use?
I'll try and find something that jumps out to me if it means that much to you.
>That could work. Would you like to see her with someone else or would you prefer to see a solo piece?
solo or if you are into challenges draw her with
Titan Tails I'm sorry I had to
Looks like a combination of The Boss and Strangelove.
which is my non-Sonic OTP, thanks mr. skeltal
True, and something like the cold/flu is a tricky bastard, so I could see Shadow getting it. Still, stuff that doesn't constantly mutate/hasn't popped up in the last 10 or so years I can't see Shadow falling victim to
He's certrainly made of tougher stuff than game sonic, but multiversal? Nah.
Though I have the oddest feeling that I know what you're talking about with Ban and the Getbackers wanking
My heart after Ian broke it.
You know, I've always wondered. Does Sonic's body go fast?
Does his heart pump faster, digest food faster, etc.?
Why hasn't Sonic Team ever made human NPCs look like pic related?
Unleashed's humans aren't stylized like Sonic characters. They have a very "Pixar" look to them.
They can be not cute while still in the same style, like Eggman. The artist just specifically wanted them to look cute.
not sure if I would hit that
Pixel Sonic, if they do end up using that as the new name for classic sonic, how hard will it be to get use to it?
They won't, because they never even phrased it like that in the article everyone is referencing. It's like no one can use context clues.
>The Classic Sonic licensing programme is a celebration of the brand's heritage as the most popular and iconic video game character of all time. Graphics span across multiple iterations from pixel Sonic to comic book Sonic.
Apart from the fact that this is a trade magazine for manufacturers, they're talking about the art-style of the merch. "Classic Sonic" is capitalized like a proper term, whereas "pixel Sonic" isn't. If anything, this means they're just referring to two categories, Classic and Boom, Classic including what we call "Modern Sonic", which is really the same character as "Classic Sonic".
What do you think is the Sonic cast's favorite foods?
So what the fuck is Archie's problem?
Sonic's is chilli dogs and Knuckles' is grapefruit.
I bet Silver likes... mint. Because he looks like a leaf and occasionally glows menthol turquoise.
Just stopping by your slow thread with this friendly reminder.
Sally a slut. Katella a shit.
Amy is superior to all you're waifus
> Mint Candy is actually Tails' favorite food.
Which is how he gets lured into Creepy Old Woman's Castle Of Fox Molestation, yep.
Reminds me of Paul Dini being so infatuated with Zatanna that he married an irl stage magician that looks just like her.
I do like the amount of care that Hurst and the others put into Sally. She could've very easily been one of those characters that one-ups the main character to annoying levels, but I never felt that from Sally in the cartoon. Her and Sonic were equals with different focuses, which was the perfect way to handle "Sonic's girlfriend" as a character.
Canonically Sonic likes chilidogs and Tails likes mint candies
salt core just drew DBZ lewds
The fucking idea of Tails training Silver popped up into my head again and now my own head canon just got one new little thing added to it
this is why I should be sleeping at 4am
>I do like the amount of care that Hurst and the others put into Sally.

Same. Hell, I still like Sally a lot despite all the shit she's been through.
She's honestly a better "strong female character" than half the shit Marvel is pushing at the moment So Rotor's a gay fish?
I get that was the intent, but I don't really agree. She tended to talk down to Sonic and WAS usually right when they disagreed about something. You know how people bitched in that Sonic Boom promo where the guts all fall flat on their faces, but Amy manages a perfect landing? Sally pulled that nonsense all the time. She even did it in the Wolf Pack episode, suddenly pulling off this perfect flip despite falling down a trap.
I also think it's weird that they didn't even bother to nail down a species for Sally.
I like her as she is in the comics now though (Dark Ages Sally just needs to be forgotten completely), less of an always-right snob, totally willing to put herself in the line of fire for others, allowed to be goofy and dorky sometimes.
>She tended to talk down to Sonic and WAS usually right when they disagreed about something.
There were just as many times where Sonic was right or ended up saving her ass when she got herself captured or otherwise stuck. I think it was more of an even give-and-take. Sometimes Sally would be right, sometimes Sonic would.
