Re: Sonic Mania - Game content discussion thread (with spoil

I'm up to Lava Reef with 4 emeralds and I just want to gush a bit. Every single person in this topic screamed the equivalent of "holy crap, it's Bean" during MS1. I freaked a little when Fang appeared - I had just finished explaining to my friend who he was and how long overdue he was for a return. ...

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania (Spoiler free thread)

I can't guarantee that the code will still work by the time your Switch arrives. Weird situation. Can you redeem codes on Nintendo's website? I'll send it to you anyway, but if somebody else here wants to claim it and can actually use it within the next 12 hours then speak now.

Re: OH YES Sonic Mania (Spoiler free thread)

I've been thumbnail spoiled many times before. These days I think you pretty much have to play/watch on day one, stay off of youtube for a week beforehand, and never google anything related to it to be completely safe. To address an earlier fear, they did NOT screw up the emerald colors. I knew ther...

Lawsuits are probably his only source of income at this point. I'm sure nobody is paying him to write.

Re: Ken Penders owns a bunch of Sonic's shitty sidekicks

He should really consider trying a Lovecraftian horror series. His art style is the perfect sort of wrong for it.

That special stage background art is really selling it. Aside from the obvious reference, I'm also getting a Game Gear vibe from it.

Re: Sonic 2017

The masculine voice seems to indicate* it's male, but the mask could contain a voice modulator, so the "stolen OC" angle could still apply. When I first saw him more clearly I had the strong impression that he looked female until I heard the voice, so I'm with you there. Now that we've gotten a bet...

They've done it. They've created the ultimate Sonic OC. He's faster than Sonic, stronger than Silver, and edgier than Shadow.

But will he chuckle?

Re: Archie Sonic is probably dead

We're probably getting a Boom comic. Maybe Sega looked at the Boom TV ratings, compared them with the comic sales, and decided they could do better.

I lament only the abruptness of its demise. Any story that goes on for that long deserves an ending. Hopefully Ian will give the fans something.

Those switches were present in every island Eggman invaded: ... He could've given Knuckles some DIY traps to install. Not so much the switches as the entirety of Hydrocity and Lava Reef. I would argue that the network in Lava Reef was far to vast for Eggman to have set up in a day or two, and build...

I dunno, Flickies have mastery of Teleporter Rings, and they likely qualify as just barely sapient. Before Smile clubs you, the animal friends are totally intelligent. But I agree with your point.

If they had the technology, why then did they opt for sandals? That's the interesting thing about them. The society we saw 3000 years ago looked pretty primitive. Stone pyramid buildings, basic clothing, spears ? Maybe some of what we see on Angel Island (such as electricity) was developed long aft...

Re: Revenge of the nerds

I've always wondered about Carnival Night. Was it part of the Echidna civilization or something Eggman whipped up due to his love of theme parks? And if Eggman made it, how come Knuckles didn't freak out (or about Launch Base for that matter?). Knux seemed to know his way around Carnival Night (or ...

It says the singer is from Hoobastank. Someone on the team must be a fan - I can't think of another reason to get him specifically. I wonder if he wrote any of it.

I know they already got married in Super Paper Mario, but I didn't think Nintendo would be so open about it in a main game! Not sure if sarcasm o...

Re: Sonic 2017

The mask has bat ears, but it has no bat wings and it appears to have a bush/spiky tail. That could be a really long head tendril though. The torso curves could be female, but the boobs are too small for Rouge.

It seems in the Japanese version of Sonic Adventure, Amy's power-up is called "FIGHTERS FEATHER" (a reference to Sonic the Fighters?). It was changed to WARRIOR FEATHER for the internal version (And Warrior could very easily be a mistranslation of Fighters, as I believe it's the same word in Japane...

It turns out Pocket Adventure has the same problem as G-Sonic where it includes 3 completely different emerald shapes in different parts of the game.
