It was alright. Music still sounded like ass and the team-up mechanic was still underwhelming. It also still had the homing attack for some reason.

Talking about Metal Sonic, the first boss battle against him in the Snow level, and the overall flow of the game was very well received among "normies"... Or at least were I used to study.

When I explained them than "old fans" whined about the game just because "Sonic still had green eyes" or the "Water levels that slow you down", they said that those people is just stupid. Their answers were like
>The Water levels slow them down, but with no thing to slow down and force you to platform, they whine because "press right to win"
>Green Eyes? Really?
>The team-up could improve, but it's a good gimmick! They'll complain if that team-up didn't existed, too.

And things like that
>>
>>121295172
There were good tracks, but they all sounded like shit because all the instruments used sound like someone trying to recreate "retro" music without ever having heard music from a Genesis or SNES. It was the same for episode one: lots of good tracks ruined by the game's choice of instruments.
>>
>>121295595

>>121295595
Honestly, episode 2 is alright and it did improve on episode 1 quite a bit, but ti still had some of the same problems
>Rolling still not as good as it used to be, and the physics are still a bit off
>Level design overly reliant on homing attack chains, dash pads, and springs
>Bosses outside of Metal Sonic are underwhelming at best, and whoever decided that the pinch music needs to be the main boss theme needs to be shot
>Game's too damn short
>>
>>121295683
>someone trying to recreate "retro" music without ever having heard music from a Genesis or SNES
You can expand that to literally everything else about the game and it applies. It's a "classic Sonic" game designed by someone who has no clue what a classic Sonic game was like.

And the music was done by Senoue, who did some of the music for Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles so it's definitely a design choice made at the top rather than anything he'd intentionally do.

The biggest bet after knowing how to code is knowing how to model or animate. Writing is highly tertiary compared to those two things or even texturing.

I first said it was "great" just to spice things up.
It was ok, it had its flaws but none of them were terrible. Nothing that a little work on them couldn't fix them.

Calling it shit just because one thing, is a red flag.

>>121295954
I don't know, but I won't say that they were bullshit taking in account that Labyrinth exist.

They needed a little more work. But they were just fine.

>>121296073
>Game's too damn short

Everyone said that. About your other points, about the physics, sure, if you're used to certain kind of flow, it somehow fall flat on the floor, but once you get used, you can get fast even in some underwater sections. I'm not talking about wind sections...

A lot of decisions and bad things pointed out are minor flaws and nothing that is game breaking or ruining the game itself, they are flaws that need to be worked on. In short, the main problem is Iizuka being a hack and SEGA execs caring more about deadlines than quality.
>>
>>121296109
The thing is, Ep I was obviously just a mobile cash-in which had nothing to do with being a continuation that they later on decided to stick the 4 on for more bucks. The graphics are cheap. All the levels and enemies are just rip-offs of the Genesis games to make casuals think they're playing a game just like the classic ones. The lack of momentum and presence of the homing attack makes the game better suited to touch screen controls. The special stages are perfect for touch screen/gyroscope controls, too. The game even had/has (I can't remember which) an actual level section to take advantage of a phone's gyroscope. They already had the game and figured it would sell more if they put it on consoles and marketed it as a true sequel to the Genesis games. Ep II was so much better because they were trying to make a classic 2D Sonic game and continuation of the older ones from the beginning, instead of relabeling a cheap mobile game.
>>
>>121296632
The game is shit because it's inferior by designs to games that came out almost a decade earlier on inferior hardware.

The fact is it's worse than Sonic Advance by a significant margin (which is the game they were attempting to emulate$ and doesn't come near the perfection that is Advance 2.

The game is shit because it's shit. Nobody actually thinks it's shit over green eyes or water levels.
>>
>>121296323
Yea, I know. Thing is I just suck at anything other than using my imagination. I can barely draw. Can't get too into scripting and I tried my hand out on modeling using the UE4 and that's also difficult but easier than scripting and drawing.
At least with modeling I can start with a ball and slowly form the shape I want (through needless hours of work.)

So yea, you kinda understand how fucked I am if I just go for game designer/producer. Not only that I heard that the Game Designer market is HIGHLY competitive and is the major reason why Indie exist as a genre.

Ultimately the best I can do is layout my ideas and designs on paper which pretty much anyone can do anyway.

I wouldn't say that shit level design is a
minor problem, especially in a platformer. The only level with good level design is Sky Fortess (Or whatever it's called. It's fucking Wing Fortess but less interesting) and even then it's dull.
>>
>>121297015
The best thing you'll ever be able to do with that skill set is maybe run into a code monkey with no imagination and an artist and create an indie game.
>>
>>121297212
Pretty much. And fuck that shit I refuse to be grouped up with those kinds of people. I'd rather be conscious of how useless and lazy I am then ignorant of it and spend my time thinking that people love me because I can do something literally anyone else in the world that knows how to write could do. Not like it makes me any better though.
>>
>>121293621
Woah. I'm listening to his theme and was just thinking about this. The story could have been executed better via presentation that doesn't make you want to kill yourself, and his theme is actually a lot sadder out of context. As for the story itself, it is pretty sad when you look at it like a written story or something and ignore the actual cutscenes. Also, the way I see it is that Gamma and the bird are two completely different beings, and the bird was only a battery. The bird had no part in controlling anything Gamma did or thought.
>>
>>121298653
>The bird had no part in controlling anything Gamma did or thought.
The problem with that is that you clearly see Gamma have fuzzy flashbacks to the bird, so it's influencing his mind at least somewhat.

He has almost the same amount of lines in the episode as he does in the game, maybe even less if you count his quotes in the boss fight.

What's not to like? It's one of the better eps. Better than the Metal Sonic episode by a great deal.
>>
>>121302003
Honestly the only thing I like about it is the Ikea jokes, otherwise the Metal episode is better solely because it has Metal.
>>
>>121302129
All metal does in the episode is shoot lasers from his chest.

It's a completely worthless appearance. A terrible utilization of the character.
>>
>>121302343
And all Shadow does is homing attack a few times.
>>
>>121302416
And yet it's loads more action than metal's pathetic display.

All it meant was they didn't have to animate him doing anything, just put a black ball in his place when he fights.
Really they could have replaced Shadow with Dave and the fight would have been just as good.

No, LW was a weird game to port, not only because of the reception it got or because people were asking for Unleashed longer, but because the game wasn't designed to be scaled back in anyway. It was built as a Wii U game to run at a locked 60fps so they devs never though to themselves "what if someone can't run this well?"
That and the game is actually built around the unpatched Wii U version so a lot of bugs are still in.

So how does the bomb wisp work on the PC version of LW?
In the Wii U version you would start off with a weak one that would have a tiny explosion but trading and receiving them through miiverse would give you powerful ones that could really do damage.

>music
I like Ohtani but I also like variety. Give someone else a shot at the lead composer role. Maybe Kumatani if she's still there.

Slowly start re-introducing past characters as plot-relevant NPCs. Since nostalgia is all the rage these days, maybe re-introduce side characters from the 90s.
>>
>>121314989
>Gameplay
Multiple playable characters that play like Sonic, but slightly different and are optional. Sonic and co have controls similar to those of Sonic stages in the Adventure games, but improved drastically
>Story
Action-adventure story with some comedic elements on occasion. High energy, noticeable stakes and tension
>Writing
Not everyone's a joke master. Occasional joke or cheesy one liner, but doesn't overdo it. Those involved generally stay in character. Again, focus is more on action-adventure story
>Art direction
A mix of Unleashed and Heroes. Some realism, but also some cartoonish elements.
>Music
Variety is the spice of life. Something like SA1's soundtrack spanning various genres.
>Atmosphere
A fun, tense, and exciting adventure. Lighthearted but not like Colors.
>Anything else
Have someone besides Sonic and Eggman do something plot-relevant.
Do not be afraid to dig up things from Sonic's long, long history. Bring back Special Stages for emeralds, but have them be optional

Funny thing is, since you skippe those, you skipped 90% of Penders' stories where anything of worth happens. And I use the term "anything of worth" very loosely. More like "the only stories that have a lasting impact on continuity that aren't retconned in 5 issues".

I remember him bitching about how he wanted to sue BBMBBF and his comics for using 'his' characters in a disgusting way. Unless he was allowed to make some free scripts himself for Palcomix. Yet he got rid of his search tool on his website and I'm not going through the entire forum to look for it.

Thanks, I found something interesting in the old archive on Foolz back in 2013. As quoted by Ken as I'm on my mobile and can't post any photos until I get home.

"The key part is to ask for permission. You're right, in that there's no adequate way to police the internet. However, if people were to just simply ask in cases where no money changes hands, chances are permission would be granted as long as the artwork posted a disclaimer such as the following example: JULIE-SU © 2010 by Ken Penders

Is that really too much to ask in exchange to allow someone to write or draw their piece of fan expression? I'm not against people like Palcomix for example, as long as they put a copyright symbol on the photo even if it is a parody of my work. Sadly, he is in the Philippines so I can not bring a cease and desist letter to him as so far he has not done this. The only way I would allow him to keep posting such material with my characters is 2 things. I get half the royalties he makes from the comics, and I am allowed to create the scripts that use my characters under the name Fuzzyballs."

Back in 1999 he quoted an ENTIRE holocaust protest poem by Martin Niemoller, protestant german officer, and claimed the author as Anonymous.

Ken Penders defense:
>I should have acknowledged Mr Neimoller in the credits. However, he was attributed online at the time when someone asked. Plagiarism would be if I never acknowledged the source material. That's too famous a quote for me to ever claim credit. What I did was "paraphrase".

>>121356023
>Getting a mechanic to replace your belt and fluids for $30.
Nigger where the fuck do you live and how do I get there? Here in Central Florida every fucking autoshop charges 100-300 fucking bucks for a belt replacement. The belt itself is only 20 bucks and I don't have enough money for a mechanic.

At this point i'm honestly willing to fucking kiss the nutsack of any mechanic who offers to do my car for less than $50 because my hand right now is so fucked. My index nail is loose because I tore a lot of the follicle of it off trying to fuck around with the shit. Not to mention the shit ton of scratches and cuts I have on my arm.

His first idea was Alicia being the crazy, malformed techno-mutant ruler of the sewers of Robotropolis. Naturally, this was turned down.

The second pitch was for a Sally and Bunnie version of Thelma & Louise. It was also rejected. MIGHT have been because he likened it to a recent R-Rated movie that ended in a double suicide and was widely believed to promote homosexuality.

Then he and Kanterovich sucked around, making an intentionally dumb wannabe James Bond, and just kinda pitched that + fighting Robotnik. It got pushed through because it was either that or no miniseries at all.

LHC is fine. You can claim fair use under educational purposes, especially if it remains just the history of the ideas that were being thrown around at archie. It's protected like video tapes of convention panels where speakers talk about IPs they're not working on anymore and their plans for it.

And since Ian is a freelancer, it insulates Archie even more. It doesn't matter if he's still working for Archie or not (because archie is technically not a party because technically it's a dispute between a copyright holder (Penders) and a single infringer (Ian)), but even if it did matter, his freelancer status insulates archie almost completely, as he's not an "employee" (though there might be room for an analysis similar to a work-for-hire one as to whether someone is an employee or an independent contractor.

Ian might be an infringer, but even if he was, since he wasn't selling it.

And to defeat fair use, you can use the argument about what copyright is supposed to be intended for, which is economic development and continuation of series. Creating sequels and the like. I doubt any court will find that a discussion about possible plans that have been thrown away will infringe on possible sequels to the LSC

The settlement stated that Penders cannot equate his characters to Archie characters, and must make that distinction, right? So if he starts claiming that Ian's actions are infringing on his copyright, he might be tripping over his own two feet and into liability himself. If you're claiming that the old characters are similar enough that even talking about them in the past tense is enough to trip liability, then he might not have differentiated them enough from his new characters....at least, that's a possible argument to counter-sue over if he does go to court.

And before anyone says "Well, Archie needs to avoid going to court, period", sometimes, you just can't. When you get someone like Penders around, it's better for both SEGA and Archie.

>>121385669
Isn't the problem with fair use that it's a defense? As in, if Penders decided to take legal action, the burden of proof would be on Ian to prove fair use instead of Penders proving the opposite. It might be easy to argue from Ian's side, but it would still require costly legal action that he might not be able to afford.

You can dismiss on those grounds, and I think there's enough here that a full trial isn't necessary. I think everything is pretty out on the table as it is.

Fuck, if Penders goes ahead and sues, I'll offer legal aid for fucking FREE to Archie or Ian just to shut Penders up. All I'd need is an overseeing attorney because I haven't passed the bar, yet.

Upon re-re-reading the Knuckles comic (Because it's really, really fun to see how badly Penders botched every aspect of it), it's really quite astounding how Penders manages to miss obvious chances at worldbuilding and character development in favor of more stilted, unnatural exposition. It's even more amazing how little Knuckles actually does in his own fucking series.

More like his clones did everything and he just staggered from plot to plot asking questions that almost never got answered directly and watching the side characters do everything.

And even then, I wouldn't mind the side characters doing stuff if they weren't all written practically the same and had the same grimacing expression on their faces in every panel.

Eh, better to take him on in court. Hit him with a countersuit for harrassment or a breach of contract suit for a failure to abide by a settlement...hopefully the old lawyers were smart enough to draft into the settlement a clause that gives jurisdiction to the old court. Having to bring a new suit together is always more of a bitch.

well, mind you, if he's taking on Ian then would any of that legalese but in place? Ian doesn't represent Archie after all, as you say. however, you can still hit him with his own bullshit from the pre existing case if you were able to somehow gain access to the details.

if it's the case of Penders *supposedly* going up against DC, that's a whole other can of beans. I'd expect they would get their own lawyers involved, along with any interested parties such as Archie/Sega. Ian most likely being skipped entirely.

who knows what will happen. penders is likely just blowing air out his ass again.
>>
>>121390513
Let's also remember one key thing about the original lawsuit: Penders funded that with his wife's money. Do you think, that with the money he's supposedly dumping into LSC, that he could fund another lawsuit? Even then, if he's going against DC, that's Warner Bros. money and legal teams he's going against. He'd be outright FUCKED. And if he's going after Ian/Archie, he has even less of a case than last time

Most likely you're right about him blowing hot air out.

But that can still be considered harassment. Threatening lawsuits wouldn't be given the same deference as the filing of frivolous lawsuits, but there is definitely case law out there that constant threats of impending lawsuits can be damaging enough to warrant a harassment claim. Especially if it makes business difficult to be conducted, and it effects the good name and relationship between a company/person and their fans.

And if he uses legal arguments, and advertises his thought process as such on twitter, that contradict a former settlement, and equate the old characters to the new characters (if that's what's prohibited), Archie can pick up the suit themselves, which would be the contract breach suit (settlements are technically contracts)

There's a lot of ifs, and a lot of this is based off of what we all assume to be in the settlement, but it's definitely not something that Archie or Ian should dismiss out of hand if he comes after them for something.

The DC case is a whole other thing, you're right. I really, really hope the contract he's talking about in relation to those DC royalties is based on that 1996 contract he claimed was fake.

Oh shit, I forgot about that contract. Isn't that the same one he used to get his characters? If he claims that it's suddenly valid, then that means that it was also valid for when he was working at Archie on Sonic (From my understanding)

I also find it hilarious that in trying to do his own thing with LSC, he ties the entire continuity of the book to the comics. So basically the only way for new readers to understand who the characters are and why they should care is to read 10+ year old comics in a franchise they may not care about (and are hard to find) from an entirely different publisher, somehow like what they read, and then read LSC. Otherwise new readers won't know what the fuck is going on, because Penders, for all the exposition he spouts in his stories, doesn't contextualize things well

His portrayal is pretty much fine with the exception of Shadow the Hedgehog.
>>
>>121394180
If he's a playable character in a game that also stars Sonic as a playable character, have them interact and bounce off each other more. They don't need to be best buddies, just have them work together for a game so we can highlight the key contrasts between the two and firmly establish Shadow's character as something other than "muh ria" or "fuck you and your friends." Shadow is probably the easiest character to include as a playable character, since his gameplay has been a clone of Sonic with a few minor bells and whistles in every single one of his major playable appearances.

If he's in his own spinoff again, keep him with Team Dark and give all three of them some character interaction. If this is the case then he doesn't need to play the same as Sonic, because it's a spin-off and what's the point of a spin-off if it's just going to play like a Sonic game.

But the non-Super Sonic endings exist, which show they are a possibility and as such show that Sonic would have survived without his Super form.
>>
>>121405360
Did we even see him power down upon falling? I mean, if he lost the superform while falling then fuck me, but I remember him still being powered up before disappearing into the atmosphere.

Omega doesn't acknowledge shit. Rouge says he's a robot, which is something she wouldn't have been able to totally confirm, and Omega just says that original Shadow has to be somewhere. He never agrees "yes, the Shadow we were with was a robot all along."

Eggman already built a bunch of Shadow androids, so Omega saw Shadow and assumed he was one of them.
>>
>>121405853
The hoops you're willing to jump through to cover for the retcon are staggering.
>>
>>121405853
Furthermore, Shadow's pod was kept in his own special room with Omega in it while all the androids were stuffed in another
I can't think of any reason why Eggman would put an ordinary android in a special room

Omega can literally tell when something is or isn't a robot. He identifies Eggman as a fake during the Hang Castle / Mystic Mansion boss.

They specifically built the shadow we played as up to be one of the androids. It wouldn't be a problem if they weren't pretending the one from heroes was the one you play as in ShTH.

Just admit it, he was Disney'd back to life on flimsy excuses.

Haven't tried it. They made a way to unlock the framerate entirely and a way to change the framerate throttle to 30.

>It's even more amazing how little Knuckles actually does in his own fucking series.

It's more sad when you realize how little influence he has on anything. He is typically running around punching people in the face while having no idea what's really going on, the Brotherhood actually are the ones to beat the enemy with whatever last minute bullshit they pull out of their asses, and Knuckles is left standing there going "Hey, we won, somehow. How mysterious!"

So deep.

You do not decide what is and isn't canon.

>>121407446
It's still a spin-off game, and not one spin-off has ever been taken as canon.

Unless you wanna argue how Sonic Shuffle or Olympic Games is canon.

Also, Shadow didn't get amnesia again. This was the same amnesia from Heroes because nobody thought to tell him a goddamn thing about his past or who he was. Not even Rouge or Sonic

He's not talking about that level. He means Lost Impact and The Doom, the 2 worst levels in the game and possibly all of 3D Sonic. Lost Impact made me break at least 2 controllers.

Well Cosmic Fall is an ARK level. He should have specified flashback ARK levels

What?
Also the Chaotix are shown in Heroes with completely different designs and personalities.
>The game has what-if scenarios, somehow invalidating the actual ending.
It also doesn't validate that the true ending is also canon.
>The game aiming at edgy teenagers is edgy.
What does that have to do with anything?
>Shadow is just as confused as he was in Heroes.
Not really.
>The entire game is reliant on references to Adventure 2 and Heroes to the point that it creates plotholes, Sonic isn't with Tails and Knuckles in the beginning of Heroes despite being with them in Adventure 2 so CLEARLY it's not canon!
That only proves my point further, there's tons of shit that isn't explained and doesn't make any sense in story logic.
>Dark Gaia, the Nega Wisp, Metal Overlord and King Arthur/Merlina are also not mentioned.
Wisps are brought back in Lost World and Generations, Rooftop Run is in Generations as well, so they are canon.
Storybook games are not canon.
>>121407881
>Shadow being on good terms and working with GUN was a result of the events to ShTH's true ending
>You can't explain why he was working for them in 06 then
Rouge could have easily told him about G.U.N., and it would be smart to keep an eye on G.U.N.
"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."
>>121408010
Just because they reference shit from past games doesn't mean it's canon.

Sonic references the storybook series in Generations, I guess that means those games are Canon now. That or Generations isn't canon.
