Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog movie

(In case the sarcasm wasn't thick enough, I was poking fun at how pretentious we were in our heyday) If I happened to catch it on TV or someone really wanted to watch it with me, I'd give it a chance. But it really just looks like a copy+pasted buddy cop film with a few scenes taken from a Jim Carey...

Re: Pop: Super Tails and Super Silver

The only games with Super Tails are S3&K and Sonic Mania. The way the cutscene in Heroes portrays it, it looks to me like only Sonic transforms and he just shares some of his power with the other two.

Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog movie

Am I the only one still jaded enough to refuse to see this on principal? I mean, it even turned out to be a popular movie! We're supposed to be contrarian, guys. Damn sellouts.

(The sequels will probably focus more on the Sonic worlds, so they might interest me a bit more)

Re: Sonic 3 returns - in LCD form

It's nice to see that they remember these. Sonic 3 was one of the most common, though. If they were releasing some of the rarer ones, I might be interested.

It took a few decades, but the saga continues at last.

I have a sinking feeling that his mission will end about as well as his father's.

Re: Where will you be if you can't find you?

It's not as stimulating as it used to be, but I kind of like it this way. It's more peaceful. Guess we've gotten soft in our old age. It was a great ride, though. The experience really helped shape me, for better and for worse.

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Sigh Sorry, that probably sounded condescending, but if you honestly think the direction of that scene shows intent to convey transference of anything to either Chaos or the emeralds then I think you're nuts. It certainly doesn't contradict the idea, but no such thing is suggested by a plain readin...

Where do you see 柱? Could you circle it? As for the Emeralds generating their own power, I'm not entirely sure about that. How can they have unlimited power, as Tails tells us, if they don't generate it? Do you think they're being recharged in the Special Stage? Earlier I proposed that they literall...

It's possible that this pillar could be a pillar of light? Depends if the word is a Romanization or an actual Japanese word that everyone keeps translating as 'pillar'. If it's English then yes, the various metaphorical uses the word has in English could apply. If it's Japanese then they may have t...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Reading that again, it occurred to me that the Dark Ring could be the Chaos Ring Eggman witnessed being minted, only this one was corrupted by him somehow. If there are seven Emeralds, then it's likely there are seven CRs, too. This relies or on whether the manual is referring to a single or multip...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Ah, a third translation! Thanks! When it talks about the Master Emerald being moved to the Floating Island by the gods, this seems to be a reference to the backstory presented in Sonic 3. So the Special Ring was supposed to lead to the original location of the Master Emerald, because the ring itself...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

S3K theory is a nope.jpg. Looks like the manual clearly states "7 Chaos Emeralds" and the "Pillar" is already underground. Yeah, it would also color the opening scene of Sonic 3 a little oddly. As we understand it now, Knuckles thought he was stealing his emeralds back from Sonic, after which he re...

Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog mov

Rings are the macguffins. Not Chaos Emeralds, rings. Obligatorily needless bastardization no. 1! It hearkens again to the Series Bible and Kintobor's Reverse Quantum BioFormulator/Retro-Orbital Chaos Compressor that trapped all of the evil in the world in 6 emeralds using the power of the gold/cont...

Shou told me in passing that he was "under extreme scrutiny by Sega for having revealed it," but that may only have been half the story. Maybe it's both. Maybe the seller was a Sega employee of some kind who got the board for him and if the ROM goes public he'll get in trouble with his employers and...

Re: Brothers from another motherboard

Last I heard, Sega explicitly forbade Shoutime from releasing the ROM. This expo is a nice concession, but if they're going to give us anything further they might as well start by allowing an unofficial release. Also, there was a third brother! It's totally Solar Sonic, Polar Sonic, and Electra Sonic!

Re: Sonic Mania Adventures

Was anyone else bothered by how jazzed Sonic looked at the idea of fighting a super Metal Sonic ? Classic Sonic was a glutton for adventure, but dealing with Eggman always seemed like more of a chore for him, and a threat he took seriously. He's not...well, Goku. This is more like something Pontac's...

I know they basically had to make the personalities of both of these characters up, but surely they could have been something other than alt-design Tails and Knuckles. I don't know how intentional this was, but I thought their portrayal was very similar to the late-era Archie comics, where Ray was ...

Re: James Marsden taking lead role in Sonic the Hedgehog mov

My immediate assumption when I heard that Sonic was on the run from the government was that he's an escaped genetic experiment and Robotnik is a military scientist in charge of the project. There might even be a nod to the old Kintobor material if they want to give him an origin beyond "obese mad sc...

I'm more bothered that he gave a purely phonetic rendering of the Romaji without regard to the context, as the ship's name is obviously LUNAR FOX even in the game.

I'm still not convinced this is translated correctly.

That they aren't a product of chaos energy is untrue, however; Chaotix features Chaos Rings molded from Master Emerald energy, and Sonic R features a ring dispenser in Reactive Factory which is presumably fueled/stocked by one of the Chaos Emeralds featured there, either directly or with residual e...
