If that new anon is still here, I still want to know how you found the general.
>implying Sega will do that when they did not allow anyone from Boom, other than Sticks because she does not have a counter part in the main comics, in Worlds Unite because they did not want the kids to become confused
If we had that, Eggman from the Comics would be second to Game Eggman and you know it.
You think Sega JP are gonna admit that Comic Eggman is more threatening and cunning?
But what we're probably gonna get if this comes true in anyway is Boom, Classic and Modern all teaming up to fight all 3 Sonics.
>can pick from the whole of Sonic's history
Just a bit pissed Sonic Generations, you were a good game though.
>If we had that, Eggman from the Comics would be second to Game Eggman and you know it.
Why is that a problem? I can see the Sega Eggman being the unappointed leader of alliance since he is the original. You guys overrated Archie Eggman too much. Especially since Fleetway Eggamn isn't so nice either.
Game Eggman is the OG and all, but Eggman's by nature are double crossing lying bastards.
It's a wonder how Modern and Classic Eggman survived a truce.
And out of the two of them, (well, with the current version of Game Eggman), Archie Eggman is just a bit more cunning. Lacks scope mind you.
Game Eggman has the upper hand with being able to create huge machines and factories almost overnight, but Archie Eggman I'd put my bet on to be the first to backstab anyone.
Which is why I'd be disappointed if he was playing lackey to Game Eggman, is all.
I'd imagine all the Eggman's having ulterior motives behind each other's backs. Like as a final boss battle where they are all controlling this massive mech/machine to dominate the multiverse and they all have wired it to put it under their control with a push of a button. And it all has the robot going crazy shooting, blasting and malfunctioning all over the place as the Eggmen fight/argue for control. It would be ironic since they would have won if they kept it together and not let their egos get in the way.
So I took it a step further and.....
Seems about right.
That was a stupid ass reason.
>We at Sega want to push the new brand of Sonic, so we are afraid that the Sonic Boom versions might look bad/inferior against the classic versions. So that's why we didn't have them crossover.
World's Unite was a mess.
>it didn't take it over
It never was going to as long as Iizuka was in charge.
Thinking Boom was going to replace normal Sonic is as dumb as people who thought Shadow the Hedgehog was going to become the new main character after his game.
That's only if Iizuka continues to have his way. It's been said on more than one occasion that he's intentionally keeping Sonic in a vacuum, mindlessly attempting to recreate the things people "liked" about the franchise despite not having a solid understanding of what those things were in the first place.
That, and I suppose he's trying to appeal to the Nintendo audiences, but that's only speculation.
You could ask them same of pretty much every other general here on /vg/.
The answer is simple: It's because there aren't enough places to regularly discuss the subject matter without being subjected to rampant fanboyism, or the collective criticisms of some bandwagon made up of people who aren't allowed to like the things they want.
Have you seen the SEGA forums? Sonic Retro? Bumbleking? Honestly, there aren't too many places to talk about Sonic without hanging a sign around your neck. Anonymity offers security for those with the desire to escape the masses.
>ask them same
Bah, mistype. Oh well, have some cute.
No because Archie comics aren't jap.
Other anons are right, if Boom had been popular on all fronts it would have over taken modern sonic. The amount of push behind Boom points to this.
But Boom isn't Jap either.
Meanwhile, characters like Scourge have a cult following in japan

>Meanwhile, characters like Scourge have a cult following in japan
It hurts me physically to realise penders had a small hand in creating two very beloved character of the pre reboot comic.
It hurts me even more that they are so popular in japan.
>It hurts me physically to realise penders had a small hand in creating two very beloved character of the pre reboot comic.
It's alright when you realize that Penders had little to do with Zonic (Created by Dan Slott) and pretty much nothing to do with why people like Scourge. Then again, is there a Penders character that people like because of what Penders himself did?
Currently ? None. because Flynn took the time to overhaul every single character appearing during his run pre reboot :P
Penders had nothing, nothing for him that others couldn't do better.
Japan in general loves characters that are alternate versions of the main characters.
Scourge = Evil Sonic. Zonic = Zone Cop Sonic. Shard = Hero Metal Sonic. This is also why Silver was made a hedgehog instead of a mink like he was originally supposed to be.
>Penders had nothing, nothing for him that others couldn't do better.
Exactly. When people say they miss his characters, they just miss what Ian or Bollers did with them. And yet Penders still thinks that he's the reason people liked those characters, when oftentimes the characters that people liked the most from him were the characters he used the least ( Like Scourge/Evil Sonic and Lien Da) Hell, he tried to make out Lien Da in the Green Knuckles arc to be treacherous, but it's not until Bollers and Ian get their hands on her that we actually see her do anything of worth whatsoever
I'd say he has a decent sized fanbase. I'm not a huge fan of Espio but I still like him
I like him. Ninjas are cool and he's my favorite member of the Chaotix. I also own both of his official plushes.
The thing about Espio is that most people thinks that he's cool and all that, but it doesn't had a dedicated fanbase.
I guess that, considering how fanbases act against each other, Espio is in a sweet spot, even the worse enemies agree that he's cool.

>3. You will not post any of the following outside of /b/: Trolls, flames, racism, off-topic replies, uncalled for catchphrases, macro image replies, indecipherable text (example: "lol u tk him 2da bar|?"), anthropomorphic ("furry") or grotesque ("guro") images, post number GETs ("dubs"), or loli/shota pornography.
So who's your favorite post-reboot character? Here's one of mine
I like how Lien-Da went from unnamed minor villain to shoehorned in half-sister and honorary Kragok stand-in during most of Ken's tenure, was abandoned by Ken post Bollers "sullying" her, then jumped to "second most advertised and important character after Lara-Su" after the lawsuit.
Nigga pretends he gave a fuck AND that she was more than mildly popular when he was writing her.
>I like how Lien-Da went from unnamed minor villain to shoehorned in half-sister and honorary Kragok stand-in during most of Ken's tenure, was abandoned by Ken post Bollers "sullying" her, then jumped to "second most advertised and important character after Lara-Su" after the lawsuit.
And then claims that Ian had nothing to do with that AT ALL even though she became more important and had all of her development during Ian's run. What makes this more hilarious is that LSC is based in the MXYL timeline, where under Ken, Lien Da did jack shit and wass somehow on friendly terms with the sister she tried to murder repeatedly
How do we make his gameplay not shit?
Exactly. Then Julie somehow warned everyone about how bad the Dark Legion would be if Lien Da took over, except she'd have no way of knowing that since lolmindwipe and we never see her do anything besides go "I wanna be Komissar" and look sort of evil
And how much of that was because of the artists, especially Butler?
>that feel when she is your waifu.
0%, given her first appearance was drawn by Jim Valentino, there was no art of her for her namedrop in Julie's backstory, her appearance in Super Special 14 (drawn by Butler) was entirely off model and she was wearing a baggy getup that made her less shapely than every other girl, and she was drawn by Ken and looked fugly as all hell in #99 and #100. By 99 she had already been promoted to "sex appeal lackey" from previous appearances. You could argue the decent art from Dawn Best in the next few stories gave her the extra prominence she had in the 110s, and this led to MXYL and RtAI (where she was finally drawn halfway decently), but the fan demand had swollen well before that.
>You could argue the decent art from Dawn Best in the next few stories gave her the extra prominence she had in the 110s,
That's pretty much fact given she acted like every other villain, except somehow did less because Penders thinks all women are incompetent, crazy, or both
Sonic is kind of furry by nature, I think we can make an exception within reason here.
Except that story followed directly from the previous one, where Lien-Da taking over was set up. Those four or so panels may have caused more fan demand, but these things were already in motion.
It wasn't the art, it was the concept of "hot badguy wearing leather".
Is *anyone* here going to Weston Super Sonic?
Sounds like the name of a really, really bad porn star...
Metal is top-tier waifu material
u 'avin a giggle m8?
Same, but I figured I was going about it the hard way. Just like I hate Ian's pronunciation of Finitevus, which is like fih-nih-tay-vuhs, because since his name is faux-Latin it should be fee-NEE-tay-voos.
Who is Rouge's boss? Is it
Fang the Sniper?
I could see them having a gender swapped Jessie and James kinda thing.
Yeah, fair enough. I guess we can't have nice things as long as pic related and is pals are running the show. Now, if they were suddenly out of the picture...
Ken met a girl at a con who loved the comic. She had a sister. Their names were Lien and Linda. Lara-Su's design was based on yet another female fan.
To actually answer your question, it's probably just how it looks: Lien (Lee en) Da.
Looks like Yahoo has lost enough money on Tumblr that they're considering killing it. If there's any art on there, Sonic or otherwise, you can't find anywhere else better save it and reupload it somewhere else now.
Where would I dump screencaps then?
Couldn't tell which nocile was best, so I compared both the pre and post reboot Ones.
The results are.... Make of it what you want.
First batch, coming right in. Feel free to ask for more, it's funny.
I wanted to make another batch, but then I got this gem.
Unless I'm completely reading your phonetic spellings, Ian's pronunciation sounds more like logical Latin than yours. Unless you think his name is a fourth declension genitive.
>Also, every knows thunderbolts is
Sounds about right
>Also, every knows thunderbolts is Snivelly's waifu
>Snively likes her because there's finally someone smaller than him
>Thunderbolt likes him because it's the closest she'll likely get to fucking Eggman
Someone needs to edit this with Flynn's and Tommy's faces sometime
Though I doubt anything will top this one I took at Summer of Sonic 2013
It's understandable why you'd stop reading at that point. But there is some good stuff post reboot
That batch is 100 percent based.
She also sniped her dad with an experimental rocket launcher that almost killed her.
She is mine
See ? they really complete each other.
Depends on who is beating who, and only if penders is the one watching in the background.
I actually remember when the comic was full of ads for that shitty brand.
She is a bae
and who's gabrie ? i might need an exploitable portrait of both them and flynn. .
No, I said mindwiping and kidnapping were the only things she DID. Her assassination was entirely covert and failed, and bitching =/= action taken.
She may have WANTED to do more, but she didn't do shit. The only actual life threatening action was taken through a proxy and undiscovered, so while it's morally terrible it doesn't really register as something she did that Julie would hold a grudge over.
Do you think Breezie and Yung Venuz would get along?
Justin Gabrie, aka Freddy Mendez, aka Romy Cachon, was the editor during the dark ages who pushed for more animu styles, FFs going to school and wrote stories about Tommy Turtle, the "Original" Freedom Fighters and DESTINY so he could have an extra paycheck, all while not paying attention to what Ken and Karl were doing. Most of his Sonic editorials were actually about Star Wars.
>FFs going to school and wrote stories about Tommy Turtle, the "Original" Freedom Fighters and DESTINY so he could have an extra paycheck,
Don't forget "Antoine's first love interest" who was never mentioned before, contradicts all prior continuity, and is never brought up again
Sure they would; with breezie dead as a severed head to ornate his nuclear throne.
What part of his theme song didn't you get ? venuz is a psycho.
ps: Next time, put some exposition before throwing in a name like that into the wind.
We know. The type who thinks the only way for Tails to be a good characters is to "unseat" Sonic, who thinks Fiona deserves to be beaten for his sake, who thinks Tails "deserves" big-boobied Nicole as a trophy girlfriend in a relationship built upon the ultimate act of objectifying a female character, and who loves him some communism imagery.
>all while not paying attention to what Ken and Karl were doing
And don't forget him actively going against the demands of the licenseholders
It's not even funny how accurate this is for the most part
What memory does Sonic cherish the most?
Venuz has infinite money and an air horn. There is nothing in the universe he cannot buy. breezie should up her game.
I know right ? It's like they can read our minds...
To be fair, any of the editors would have done the same to keep Boom from overtaking the main book. Heck, Ian and Kaminski did exactly the same thing by arguing with Sega reps about the relevance of the Freedom Fighters to keep them on post-reboot.
>Eggman is 175% sensei.
GET READY TO BE SCHOOLED.
We don't know that SEGA actually told them to change it over or to get rid of the characters. I think there's a differenece between "work Underground into the current story" and "do you guys really need these cartoon characters around still?"
>and punishing/redeeming Fiona to be his personal cocksleeve are a common MO.
Wasn't there one guy who was angry at Ian for making Fiona evil then wrote a fanfic where she hooked up with Tails and Scourge went ballistic or some really dumb shit? I know it was mentioned in this general before.
There's also the small thing that Ian didn't boast about telling Sega to fuck themselves and about using none of the material from the games
It really would've been to the book's detriment to incorporate Underground any more than they did. And there's nothing but Ken's tweets to imply it wasn't as simple as a Sega rep asking for Underground and the editor explaining that they could promote it, but incorporating it entirely would alienate readers.
I tried Team Husbando and Team Waifu.
Not the results I hoped for.
Christ. That whole thing reads like "the whole company is going to shit because the CEO is a fucking lunatic who buys whatever companies/apps she thinks are hip, but doesn't have any ideas for how to improve or market them." I can seriously see not only Tumblr going down, but also any of their other acquisitions as well.
>Wasn't there one guy who was angry at Ian for making Fiona evil then wrote a fanfic where she hooked up with Tails and Scourge went ballistic or some really dumb shit? I know it was mentioned in this general before.
There's a lot of shit like that out there. You gotta love the ones that complain that "evil Fiona" was just being used and had no "agency" and then write their own versions about how it was all down to her being brainwashed.
>There's a lot of shit like that out there. You gotta love the ones that complain that "evil Fiona" was just being used and had no "agency" and then write their own versions about how it was all down to her being brainwashed.
And then have her run right back into Tails' arms, because that somehow makes sense

Did you like any of the Sonic Riders games /sthg/?
Only played the original (because lolgamecube), and didn't like it.
>ROTATING THE CONTROL STICK >REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Since I've never played the sequels, I can't make an informed opinion about them.
I would do such unspeakable things.
No, that's Knuckles.
I like both of the ones I've played. Zero Gravity has bonus points with me because it's the last time Knux was written as something other than constantly angry/stupid.

What if Gold is secretly a Sith Master?
>I'm not surprised, but would've thought they'd wait more than two Universe arcs for another Knuckles arc.
Silver's Arc, Eggman's arc, and then half these threads were people demanding that the next one be Knuckles and Amy based on them leaving on their own quest. Sound familiar?
>Zero Gravity has bonus points with me because it's the last time Knux was written as something other than constantly angry/stupid.
I don't remember ZG so good (beyond the great music), so remind me: what did Knux do that wasn't angrystupid?
They referenced his knowledge of ancient cultures/treasure hunting. When they found an ancient inscription about the game's MacGuffin, Knuckles translated it. Actually, now that I think about it, I believe Knuckles was also the one who knew where they should look for more info about the MacGuffin which is how they found the ruins.
Well my issue is that Gold looks like a
I don't remember the request exactly and the archive is down, but I remember it having something to do with Titan Tails.
Instead she made this and posted it on /v/.
It was Titan Tails fucking the transformed Tails Doll monster. Someone else later did a similar drawing with them in bed after. One day Evans will reveal to us what was once lost.
Oh boy, it wasn't lewd. It was straight up porn if I remember correctly.
Classic Tails is best and cutest Tails.
>keep lurking Japanese fans' twitters to find more great art
>a lot of them take butt pictures of Sonic characters from any medium and post them to twitter
>plushies butts, screenshots from the shows, drawings, even photos of the Joypolis Sonic statue's butt.
I don't understand why since I'm just as perverted as them (if not more), but this makes me feel weird.
Thinking about doing some alt outfits with this Metal. Clothing suggestions?
Cutest Tails? Of course.
Best Tails? Hardly.
Neo Metal longcoat?
what would Moebius Metal look like?
what about Moebius Shard?
>what would Moebius Metal look like?
Friendly, meek, non-lethal lab assistant of Dr. Kintobor. Great personality, but poor in combat.
>what about Moebius Shard?
Constantly bullied by Scourge, he was consumed with revenge and left his beloved creator. He then fashioned a new core for himself out of Anarchy Beryl and constructed a new identity for himself.
I always saw Miles eventually hooking up with Anti Sally (Calling her Alicia is a pain in the ass because that's also Sally's mom) for some reason
MTD, MartheDog, Sonic lewd artist who used to put out some passable work. His art has seriously been getting exponentially worse and worse for a while now (I personally think he's trying too hard to copy TheBoogie) and he's also a total heel.

Still not pulled yet. But by going to different websites (Including anons on here) and the previews, I've managed to get the important info out

>The shrimp captain wanted to throw his ass out, but Coral stopped him
>The fish princess' name is Princess Undina

Nope. People have it and it's out. It just hasn't been ripped yet on /co/.
