More girlish while still being a tomboy.
No more political shit.
No more baggage of being a cunt.
No more giant manly eyebrows.
More useful in combat due to training with her bracelets while still primarily being a tactician.
From what material are Sonic's spines and Tails' tails made of
I mean they can cut through metal and still be soft to touch
Make them good, fuck off with story beyond save the animals and make all music non vocal.
Design looks more in-line with the series, none of the background drama (her dad being a dick, her "royal duties" overriding everything, an improbably "secret past" with Knuckles that just led to more forced drama), and she generally comes off as friendlier and more easygoing. I especially like that she has more goofy moments (bad jokes, bad cooking, the bit asking her dad for money) but when shit goes down she doesn't back down as easily as she tended to pre-reboot (I just keep remembering all the times her dad told her "you can't do that" and she just gave in, or all the times she got mopey over her relationship with Sonic).
Because i'm not a furry.
I'm sure there are hundreds of furries who were in to the bizarrely realistic proportions Sally and etc. girls had, but whenever I see them, I can't help but laugh hard
Good lord were those dark times
I do miss the longer hair and cheek tufts but that's just a personal preference. She looks a lot better overall. Especially with how other females wore complete clothing while she was pretty much naked back then.
>Sonic will never have a good game again
>Sonic is forever a Punching Bag of the Gaming industry
The fan comic continuation updated with an off-panel
also good morning Last thread was pretty good, I wish I could have been there more.
>next week we get new Sonic Channel Shadow pic
>also the 21st is next week, maybe we'll get some news
>400th thread soon, which might bring nice art
I'm a little disappointed with the "Unleashed" arc, it's decent, but I expected it to be more like an adaptation. It's more like standard Archie Sonic adventures except wherehog is there.
You'd prefer it be empty and predictable, then?
I kinda like the "boots and gloves" female designs of earlier Archie comics, more simple, less "marked", more like the boys.(except for when they tried to make them sexy, whoever was responsible for than can get lost up their own asshole)
I do like that everyone actually looks like they're the same artstyle now though.
>They're made out of pure, unrefined cute.
I can work with this
>For some reason I find that artist to be rather creepy, honestly. Specially his Sonic.
>Lenmeu's Sonic creepy
well that's a new opinion
>well that's a new opinion
get a better SonTails artist fag
For the record I was at least expecting Sonic and Chip to be together, their friendship was major part of Unleashed's plot. But Knuckles found Chip and named him. Also when Chip's with Sonic and co he's just kind of there.
I was wondering where to find the music for the games... and so I thought I should come here. The first link to the Paste had it, so this is the right place.
I really love the music in the Sonic games. What's your favorite OST, guys?
It makes more sense that Knuckles found Chip, given his connection to the Master Emerald and knowledge of ancient mysticism.
It was very disappointing to see him totally excluded from Unleashed's plot, since it was heavily focused on the Chaos Emeralds losing their power.
Never, now make sure to buy the Archie reboot.
Razor's origin was storytimed last thread. Five whole pages.
Otherwise, nothing new. We're still waiting on SU #83...
More likely that SEGA hardly cares if they contradict themselves.
Like what was said here >>128828023, we're better off having our own interpretation of game canon, than relying on the testimony of people working for a committee of morons halfway across the world who don't understand their own games anymore.
We will not die. So long as there are waifus to post and things to bitch about, we will NEVER die!
>I especially like that she has more goofy moments (bad jokes, bad cooking, the bit asking her dad for money
I find the fact that she still calls her dad "daddy" really cute for some reason. I don't know why.
Maybe it's because her dad isn't such a fucking prick now
CD JP, Unleashed, Black Knight, 3d Blast Saturn, and SA1 are my personal favorites
Who is Cream's dad?
Who was the lucky S.O.B who got to drill that hot bunny bod?
Was his name related to sweet things as well?
Something like Nuts the rabbit?
Where is the deadbeat now?
Is he alive? or off reproducing with more bunny hotties?
>Cream a qt.
It's the only way him kidnapping her in Advance 2 makes sense
>sweet zombie jesus, you're right!!
>Max: So this tournament....?
>Sally: Is for the Chaos Emerald!
>Sally: Totally regulated by all the fighting commissions.
>Max: Well then, I see no problem! Sorry for being a bit overprotective, but I don't my daughter involved in some dirty underground fighting tournament. First you think it's just a quaint little brawl next thing, it's some lunatic running it to rule the world or a crime boss or an evil corporation.
I think it's funner to think that every rabbit just has a sweets or baking related name for no goddamn reason.
Evil Bunnie's nickname was Buns, after all.
>Vanilla the RABBIT
Son of a bitch, how did I not catch this sooner?
Butthurt bird lovin' reportfags gon' report.
Swatbots gon' swat.
Wave still a shit.
Shadow was the cause of his waifu's death.
Go home, Abe. You're drunk.
Can Zero even have a hope in even TOUCHING Shadow the Hedgehog?
And I’m referring to Super Shadow with the inhibitor rings removed and extensive G.U.N tech knowledge equipped with his Shadow rifle and control of the Chaos abilities, complete with 50 rings on hand, with Black Doom’s DNA implanted in his chest so he can perform Chaos Control and Chaos Blast as well as being extremely skilled in hand-to-hand military G.U.N combat and Chaos Spear?
Heh, I don't think so kid.
>not even including Lancelot's shit
I like her a lot.
Amy can only ever be cute.
Hedgehog is not for sexual, hedgehog is for
>white panties on constant display
I dunno if I agree with that. Cream is more of a qt really. Amy a sexy 'hog.
>The reason I'm in here, is because of that Fake Hedgehog
Did Eggman ever meet his grandfather? I mean, I get how he was inspired by his work and became a scientist to follow in his footsteps, but is there at all any indication that they actually met?
I doubt he was aboard the ARK when Project Shadow was underway. Hell, he might've even been born yet.
Hey guys, I'm back from Weston Super Sonic
okay, I didn't literally come back now, I had to sleep and catch up on things first.First off, I just want to say it was great fun, and second of all, Duncan Gutteridge (aka the guy who did the airbushed cover for Sonic 2 and the 1993 Sonic calendar) says he's been contacted by SEGA in regards to the 25th anniversary...
If people want I can post a few more photos from the day.
Yay, good news and anniversary hype.
Post more pics.
What I want is a 3D game that does for physics what the 2D games did successfully. I want to able to launch Sonic off ramps, run along walls, and use terrain strategically. No boosters, no boost.
Sonic Adventure came so close to this, and the later games just fucked it all away.
He has a small gallery for that stuff.
It's actually kind of sad, he was commissioned by SEGA for the 1993 calendar and didn't receive any royalties for all the times they reused the images he made on the various pieces of merch (terms of the contract). Of course he was young and at the time but even so he did get a little screwed over by them. It's good to hear he might be doing something for them again though.
I'll see if I can find a better pic of those pieces, also just to warn you my photography skills are poor and as always I took way too few photographs
(I just think it looks awkward/impolite to photograph everything and everyone, I'm old fashioned like that).
Anyway, pictures of the con, it was a small con, but I like it like that; things like MCM get pretty hectic and slightly impersonal I feel.
I can tell you getting pinball physics like that to work in 3D is a veritable nightmare. I can see why they tried to move away from that, but they've not done a good job of it.
Boost2Win is fun in its own way, but it becomes a perfectionist run at later stages. But it feels somewhat rewarding to, say, blow through Adabat without a death.
Anyway, something tells me we're not going to see another boost game again unless they realized a way to refine it further so boost actually takes some skill without throwing in a cheap death. Frankly, I don't think it can be done.
>That one guy dressed as AoStH robotnik
Some guy dressed as Fleetway Super Sonic (pretty nice fellow).
Thanks for the link.
I don't know what to call this, modest cheesecake? I don't know but it hits me in all the right places.
>The Swabot deleting everything was really Bunnie incognito this whole time.
>Remember when the comics thought Shadow was a Reploid?
You mean Locke saying that Shadow is neither "Vegetable, mineral, or biological"
>>The Swabot deleting everything was really Bunnie incognito this whole time.
Wouldn't be the first time she disguised herself as a Swatbot
I've seen him at Summer of Sonic before in 2013 (and I'm very much ashamed to admit I never got round to photographing him). I'll be honest, it does kinda look like he slept in that costume, a little worn round the edges. There was also a guy dressed as Wes Weasley there, whom I also saw at Summer of Sonic (and again, I didn't take a picture of, probably because I thought I'd already done so at Summer Of Sonic). He's also a pretty cool guy and a fairly decent artist.
That's The Sonic Show's 'most original character' Evil the Hedgehog. They even had an Amiibo of him (sadly with no Crayola Model Magic for full effect).
Also, the winner of the costume contest, even had sound effects for the costume.
Stands and consoles. I had a couple of rounds at Mean Bean Machine and Sonic Advance 2 myself.
I have to say, Weston Super Mare is a pretty decent place to visit, having never been there before myself I'd certainly go there again. Also The Grand Pier is a pretty sweet spot, great indoor arcade (in fact there are a few arcades in WSM, some even with old machines). Unfortunately I didn't bother to go and have some fish and chips or play Time Crisis but I did manage to win a few 2p coins on those penny pushing machines (I now have a back pocket of about 40 pence worth of 2 penny coins).
Ferran Rodriguez (inker for Sonic the Comic and a lot of Disney stuff) was very nice to give us a live demonstration of the inking process on stage. He drew an angry Donald Duck which again, I didn't take a picture of but it was pretty fun to watch in my opinion. I'm actually fairly inspired by him and might have a go at inking myself some time this week.
With Emeralds, Shadow beats down Zero.
Without.......Zero if he gets his Time Stop.
Funny enough with the right Strike Team, A crew of Wily Robot Masters or Mavericks would tear up Sonic and Firends.
A close up of the piece Dunan Gutteridge was going to do on-stage (unfortunately the noise from the airbrush would have been too much for the microphone so that was nixed). However he was able to work on it throughout the event, unfortunately this picture doesn't do it justice.
Evil the Hedgehog Amiibo
And that about wraps it up, the whole day was really great, got to meet some cool people, chat, relax and picked up some merch and art (also did a couple of pieces myself). Looking forward to the next one or Summer of Sonic, whichever comes first.
Other cool things that happened:
Sonic 25th anniversary statue revealed by First 4 Figures as well as a Silver Statue (hopefully I can get pics).
SonicPox (sonic fan animator) showed off his new work and some things he's done for Sonic misadventures
Some guy from one of those Japanese anime RPG games, I think, I couldn't name him I tried
Thanks for that, yeah, he just turned up as him, no idea why.
Also pictured, some stuff. I love the magnet set and the Sonic 2 button (both for £3), there were some good discounts on the merchandise stand there.
Yes, apparently, however he dropped from the project to work on a different project, I was drawing at the time of the talk so I didn't catch the whole story.
AND ONE MORE THING
The Sonic 25th anniversary statue will allow you to choose which console Sonic is playing on (the statue itself is Sonic with a TV set and console)
Also, the co-presenter proposed to the organiser, much cheering ensued. They also had a cake.
So many blue hedgehogs
I'm so jelly you wouldn't belive.
>you will never have this much cool merch
why live ;_;
>Available for pre order in April.
get hype for the 21st in a few days guise.
Color changing chameleon chest. Being serious for a moment, I honestly do wish there was more art of her. Most of her stuff is palcomix trash. And the only thing of her with Espio I can find involves watersports.
Hope you fuckers ready for Adv
ance 4 for the 3DS
I wonder how much those posters cost
N-not like I would want them
Specifically I just watched a Dorkly thing on absurd uses of DLC where they mentioned the Lost World Extra Lives pre-order thing. It made me think of some article they had about cool floating islands in games, or something like that, and Angel Island was on there, and for some reason they felt the need to mention the modern state of the games despite it having no bearing on how cool Angel Island is as a location.
One is also more likely to get another game this year.
>Angel Island was on there, and for some reason they felt the need to mention the modern state of the games despite it having no bearing on how cool Angel Island is as a location.
Oh fuck that shit. It's in everything Sonic related in the mainstream. "Man look how cool this is .SHAME THE MODERN GAMES SUCK SO MUCH AMIRITE. THIS IS TOTALLY RELEVANT TO WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT AND NOT JUST TRYING TO PANDER TO THE JIBBERING IDIOTS THAT MINDLESSLY HATE SONIC BECAUSE IT'S COOL TO DO SO. LOL SONIC 06 IS STILL RELEVANT AMIRITE" Also funny thing about the Lost World bonus, the game ended up being hard enough that those came in handy.
I dunno, it could be cool to see an airbrushed Modern Sonic.
A lot of cels, a couple of small plushies, one of those hats (they were throwing them out at the con) and >>128899341
>the game ended up being hard enough that those came in handy.
Nah, that was some artificial difficulty bullshit because they didn't have 100 rings give you an extra life in the initial release. Fortunately that was patched out, but why would you ever remove that from a Sonic game?
I... I have a problem with cosplays. I don't know, I think I find it pretty cringy that adults (or just people that aren't kids) go dressed in stuff that... doesn't look well made. I mean, more power to them if they enjoy it, but I think it would be pretty awkward to be there in person.
Found the article. It actually said that there's a lot of lore they could go into, but if you care about that you should
>snap your Shadow the Hedgehog disc in half, go find a Genesis emulator and spend a couple of hours setting yourself right.
Because it's not like all the other items on the list had their descriptions spend time talking about how they fit into their respective series' lore.
URL all busted up because 4chan spam filters.

I'm officially getting too old for this shit
That's usually the great divide. Some do it for fun or as an expression, but most don't have the figure or the money/talent to buy/make a great costume.
Like, it doesn't help that most of them in that pic are whales trying to cosplay otherwise thin characters. Whereas there can be a sense of charm in a poverty cosplay if at least it shows heart in it without being really unsettling. Think the old staple of cardboard box Gundam.
Or the "lazy cosplay" where you throw together random clothing articles from different characters, the kinds of things usually sold as merch. Though at this point that's pretty overdone.
>the co-presenter proposed to the organiser
sorry, I had to do this
Thanks for the pics, anon. It's cool to discuss these things here.
>mfw we probably saw anon at some point over the stream
I've transcended beyond levels of mad
now there is only suffering
>always liked Rotor
he was even my fav FF for a time
>hear that shit
>honestly think it's complete bullshit
>would even go so far to say it's offensive
But I bet Ken knows some gay people so it's totally okay.
Also, HOLY SHIT this tatue
Yes, but only with a certain special move.
>snap your Shadow the Hedgehog disc in half, go find a Genesis emulator
Oh that's not even the worst of it. He paired Rotor up with some old as fuck echidna called Cobar (And insisted 10 years after the fact they were gay despite the only "evidence" being that they called each other dear or dear friend, which really isn't that gay) and did it to make himself look progressive. Oh, and he was hinting at current Rotor being gay at some point via one of Eggman's lines in an issue, and apparently Sonic and the FFs would have a problem with this. Even though, especially in Sonic's case, it'd be insanely out of character to turn on one of their oldest and best friends because he happened to be gay.
Oh I know about that shit. I was lurking when that shit was first posted in the general.
Also I just realized that since Penders likes to appear to be "in the know" and "progressive", that he may try to pull that shit in LSC or god help us, try to put in a trans character.
>Found the article. It actually said that there's a lot of lore they could go into, but if you care about that you should
>How dare you actually give a shit about an interesting and unexplored part of the game's universe
Fuck those people
I think that makes it that much worse, because him being gay wasn't part of his character, it was just an "explanation" because you know, that's not horribly bigoted and offensive AT ALL.
Ferran rather enjoyed drawing her, said she looked like someone from the Flintstones,
also said it was nice to draw something a little naughty.
And because we were at Weston Super Mare I thought it was appropriate to have classic seaside shenanigans.
Also this guy was doing a quid per character, seriously undercharging himself, so I gave him a tip. Also Ferran's sketches were £10.
You faggots have 10 seconds to explain why you don't like this character.
Incredibly forced, incredibly bland personality, had 0 chemistry or interesting interactions with Sonic, and her design really feels like something ripped from Final Fantasy. Also her being Sonic's love interest was fucking retarded
>TFW you can have an celebration fight with DK, Ryu, Samus & Sonic in Smash right now.
>TFW you are now imagining that battle and Terry Bogard looks on with interest.
On YouTube. The channels you need are BrawlBRSTMs3 for all the Modern games and Sonic CD's US soundtrack, SonicKAI for the Genesis games, and since there are no good uploads of Sonic CD's JP soundtrack, you're going to have to find a good download.
SA1, with CDJP closely behind it.
Should've been a villain. Or at least tone down the purity-sue elements of her character
You never know. All it takes is the right drawfag at the right time. If not, well, you could always ask somebody or put it on our pastebin list, I suppose. Maybe someone will take you up on it?
Comics are the lifeblood of this general. They encourage awareness and help inspire draw/writefags to produce more content.
If it weren't for the Ride in 2014, /sthg/ wouldn't exist.
If it weren't for The Marathon a year prior The Ride wouldn't exist.
And if it weren't for the Lawsuit The Marathon wouldn't have existed.
Guess we have to thank Penders for this one.
If it weren't for AoStH then we wouldn't have gotten the best henchmen and Robotnik in the entire series
If it weren't for furries then we wouldn't have had the big animal mascot character boom.
If it weren't for Sally's design I wouldn't be attracted to vests
There's a rip of the official 20th anniversary edition of Sonic CD JP in my Mega link in the OP. Granted, the loops are fucking terrible because Sega is inept as fuck, but it's there.
>Deleting the truth and vital Sonic history.
Alright Swatbot, I know you're here. I've always known you were here, why you chose a Sonic General on 4chan above all else to hang out in is beyond my understanding but please remove the stick from your ass; I highly doubt anyone here would file a report for this or the Bratwurst post.
On the subject of Swatbots, which has the best design and why is it Chronicles?
EggSwats come in second.
Oh hey, a new official Amy plush.
Is the original drawfag still here
how do you report mods for being faggots. this general has definitely had it's fair share of horseshit from the swatbot.
that incident when 2 or 3 faggots capped over half an entire thread by themselves arguing about nothing of interest, while the mod/janitor deletes/bans people telling them to shut the fuck up still leaves a sick taste in my mouth.
That's not the incident I was referring to. although it pissed me off as well. even if it was a little off topic, it was still Sonic related. What was deleted again? Some Sonic characters dressed as Nazi's and an image of Wes Wesley? Mod seriously needs to take a stick out his ass.
No, this was 300-400 posts of something that started in regards to Sonic LW and the gameplay differences between other Sonic titles. After about 25-50 posts they decided to drop it and sling shit at each other until the thread capped.
>the blue eyes on Sonic
Oh shit, nice touch
Normally I don't post Bumbleking stuff here, but Aleah's doing a Q&A, so if you wanted to ask her anything, now's the time to do so
Normally mods are quite good with shit, hotpocket memes aside; and although I'd agree a general about sanic needs some fucking moderation, more then most others, that falls flat because there are many other generals on this board that have a lot more autism. Ever taken a look inside the TF2 one? Jesus Christ.
I'm just sick of discussing it now. Every time I see something deleted and I ask myself why it was, as I often do, I'm brought back to that situation I described above about the swatbot ignoring blatant shitposting. where I ask myself if he's actively shitposting to be a cunt. and because this place is, by all means, one of the only places you can go to in order to get away from the shitposting, I get salted.
More often than not I've found that mods will instigate shit just to have an excuse to ban people.
Just don't rise to it. Ignore it where possible, they'll get bored and fuck off elsewhere.
>Doodling and Listening to music
>This comes up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA_Cr_8gOLw
Compelled to doodle this. Here have a Sally with questionable anatomy.
And I wish there was more art of Breezie's Archie self but we both know it's not happening anytime soon
A shame the only Nicole this artist has drawn is like a baby for some reason
Eh, I'm not particularly keen on Breezie's comic design. They should have kept the hair, or at least turned down the midtones on her quills. Wasn't too sure about the suit, either, but I suppose it fits her new character well enough...though I admit, it's hard to look at her now without thinking of Lien-Da.
No it's not. There's never enough Sonic.
>Too much Sonic can exist
I don't think I could have enough Sonic.
What about a trifecta of Penders, Penders and Penders?
She has tan arms, if the flashbacks are any indication. I'm rather fond of her Classic-era dress, moreso than her current attire.
It's difficult to determine her body type with the suit, and the ascot masks her bust size a bit. She doesn't have any noticeable curves (at least that's how Skelly draws her).
If I had to make a rough estimate, I'd say she's bigger than Amy, but smaller than Rouge. Though any of that might not even matter if she is indeed a robot...
Welp, so much for AoStH's "Sax Cymbal."
Unknown; Can be anywhere between his late 40's to mid 50's. Certainly younger than the G.U.N. Commander, but old enough to remember his grandpa (we don't know if they actually met, or if he was even alive when ARK was running)
Pre-reboot comic age was 48, so I'm going with that.
>tfw we will never have an official orchestra version of open your heart or live and learn
It makes my dick very sad
Usually. I imagine he stays up late watching videos on EggTube and shitposting on /egg/.
>You think Thunderbolt ever sends Eggman lewd pics of herself?
Most definitely. His reactions are probably mixed.
Well, he is human, after all. Wouldn't surprised if the thought had crossed him at one point or another...
>So since Eggman's Dozen is still MiA, how do you all think every Eggboss gets along with each other on a personal basis?
I don't see any of them being friendly with each other except Clove, Axel, and Nephthys. Maybe the squid girl too if she's nice. I could see Tundra and Ahklut getting along because they're big, hyperagressive assholes. And of course Cassia antagonizes some of them, especially Thunderbolt, who's the brunt of a lot of Cassia's jokes.
Also because one anon made a point of this: read Brave New World after 52 but before 53 I THINK
Breezie is mostly covered aside from her arms in her origin story in the comic, but in the page where she was with Scratch and Grounder, her feet looked like they had some joints to them. Her body could look robotic, or even like a ball jointed doll.
Maybe her arms now starting to reveal their joints and wore a suit to cover those now.

I'm trying to get into more competitive stuff because I have over 130 days worth of hours invested into LoL; Diamond 2 and I'm getting bored of it smashing plebs in there and being accused of modding.
Well it would not be unlike him to put ridiculous amounts of detail into his creations...
Though, that begs the question: Does she have a realistic, functional artificial uterus?
