Re: Revenge of the nerds

Lots of Sonic islands have magical elements Can you name an example? The Sonic 1 manual gives the Chaos Emeralds an air of mysticism by stating they give energy to living beings, but I've always seen them as a kind of natural technology. They're a power source that certain organisms can draw from a...

Re: AYE DEE DUBBLEYUU

Archie claimed the paperwork was lost in a fire. Ken ended up getting ownership of a sizable number of characters, which he appears to have done nothing with in the last 5 years. Sega should still own the SatAM characters, and last year they won the lawsuit with Scott Fulop, so Mammoth Mogul should ...

Re: Post your artwork (56k warning)

If so, that could be a nod to Super Sonic Dance Attack, a song from the album Inter Galactica Dance Club - Super Sonic Dance Attack , which features the lyrics "I killed Samus," followed by the death sound effect from Metroid, but that's WAY more obscure that I would expect. Also, I've been led to b...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

I love this discussion. I especially like the idea of the Avians being the rivals of the Echidnas. Sonic Riders doesn't give a timeframe for when they arrived on Earth, but it could easily fit. Too bad the whole Echidnan epoch will never be explored ever again! The Flicky birds that follow you at th...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Sorry, I was off about Sonic 4 influencing Sonic CD. I was thinking of this interview , but the guy backpedaled later so that CD's placement could remain nebulous. It was definitely a big deal to introduce the Power of the Stars as a force stronger than the Chaos and Sol Emeralds (not sure if it mea...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

I like to think that CD came before S2 because Bulma was the first supporting character that Goku met on his journey. Go on, laugh. And yes, I know Sonic 4 puts it after but I don't count games with unfinished stories as canon (like Chronicles, and you could make the same argument against the Rush g...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

Ah, so you're beginning with the assumption that the Game Gear games take place between S2 and S3 because of when they came out? I don't give that too much weight for the pre-Adventure games - I just put them wherever they fit. I mean, technically S2 8-bit came out a month before S2, though obviousl...

Minor nitpick, but is there really anything to suggest that Nightopia / Maginary World are the same thing aside from the NiGHTS cameo? The NiGHTS pinball machine suggests that either the game NiGHTs into Dreams exists in Sonic's world or Nightopia exists. It could be a separate thing from Maginary ...

Re: Sonic 2017

If they had embraced the fanfic nature of the plot and gone full parody with it, all of the game's technical flaws would be forgiven (if not incorporated as an intentional part of the parody). Tails Doll, Sonic.exe, motorcycles and more realistic guns for the avatar, main characters dying left and r...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

If we are to consider StF and the GG games as canon Several nods from Sonic Mania imply that they are! Oh, and speaking of G Sonic, its intro shows the 5 emeralds splitting from a single, larger emerald. It's probably just an artistic way of showing the 5 emeralds being scattered. A few Chaos Emera...

Re: Sonic 2017

Why do you people still invest in this franchise? I mean, Mania was the exception, but you knew this game was going to be shit and by buying it you are only supporting Sonic Team's bad, bad decision making. Only two people so far have said they actually played the game, and one of them actually lik...

Re: Sonic 2017

The writing is astonishingly bad. Not Heroes-era sort of bad, just really incompetent storytelling. I wasn't sure what to make of it at first because Pontac, while I hate his treatment of the characters and setting, has always shown basic literary proficiency. The credits held the answer: the first ...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

When keeping that context in mind "The Doomsday Zone" is basically "the place of the fateful day" which is a cool connection to the whole event being prophesied, because, again, we see that battle on the Hidden Palace mural. So it's not just a catchy name for "Eggman is trying to destroy the world ...

Probably just lazy programming. I could be easier to shove in a timer script than to go and change the end-of-level sequence to boot you to the menu.

Re: Has Rouge been kept abreast of this?

I'm not sure if this ranks above or below ShTH's guns and almost-swearing or the Elise love story on the Bizarro meter. This doesn't seem to be about raising awareness of the game. Fallen away Sonic fans will surely have heard about Mania, and in the process been exposed to its antithetical counterp...

Wombat, that parallel between the botanical theme of the shrine and the original emeralds as seeds is neat! Probably not intentional, though. Your emerald theory works but for the lack of mention of what happened to Knuckles's set of Chaos Emeralds. Chris, you've got the start of something there. I ...
