But being dead is more spooky than being alive
What's the best non-boss Dark Gaia monster, and why is it these guys?
Time to watch this since it's Halloween
Now in better resolution
For the person who wanted SADX:FE* and SA2 PC:
Sonic Adventure DX PC:
Sonic Adventure 2 PC:
Here's the Boom episode that aired earlier. They actually referenced that Tails has a fear of lightning from the OVA! Or maybe it was stated somewhere else and I just don't know.
DO I NEED TO GO OVER HOW LHT IS A NON ISSUE AGAIN
Hey, it wouldn't be Halloween without slutty costumes
Just mount it and install it. No cracks needed.
All of the games are DRM free, with the exception of SADX, which requires the Disc 2 ISO to be mounted as you play it. I'm fairly sure you can find a modified exe that gets rid of that check, or you can just keep it mounted while you play.
It did some unique things, including something that should've been in Fighters just for a giant curveball
Halloween thread here. I can only imagine where this will go, threads like this usually get hilarious with time.
Also spooky pumpkin.
>Antoine comes as Jetstream Sam
>Bunnie as Fem Jack Cayman
>Tails & Rotor makes them a working High Frequency Murasama & Chainsaw rig respectively
>Sally: Listen guys I didn't say you couldn't recreate their weapons, but you SHOULDN'T.
Why do people give Penders the time of day? I can't see him as anything other than a literal joke, like some cannon fodder that dies in the first episode/issue/chapter.
Who's Maria Renard in that scenario? Cream? Someone make this a reality
"Die hedgehog. You don't belong in this world!"
"It was not by my hand that I am once again given chili dogs. I was called here by humans, who wish to pay me tribute."
"Tribute? You steal men's rings, and make them your slaves."
"Perhaps the same could be said of all zones."
"Your words are as empty as your soul. Mankind ill needs a hedgehog such as you."
"What is a man?! A miserable little pile of slow! But enough talk, have at you!"
Neither can I. I hold legitmate hatred for him and I hope he gets fucking Aids/Cancer/a terminal disease and dies a slow, painful, agonizing death
What, you guys are sad over the green hedgehog?
Psyguywhy are you guys so worked up about him?
I want a game where I can dress the hedgehogs in cute clothes
I didn't see this posted here
Interview with Sega Of America's chief operating officer: https://archive.is/v2Di8
>But Sega won't necessarily cater to longtime Sonic fans in its attempts to increase quality. "When we look at bringing Sonic to modern-day gamers, we ... obviously want to appeal to as many people as possible but still focus on what it means to be Sonic and a Sonic game," he explained.
>"Maybe that might lose some fans along the road, but we're picking up new fans that will hopefully grow with us as Sonic grows."
reminder thats its implied in the ending of sonic rush that Sonic kissed blaze (or maybe at least hugged or something) making her like, the only in game chick for him to initiate affections towards like that
Well that's that. Pack it up, folks. Show's over. Time to move on.
Yes, but guess what?
It's always time for yuri shipping.
Fuck you, my goggles are on tight and don;t come off.
visiably yes, but theres a part with the portraits where its
and i felt like it implied a kiss, thus the reactions with no dialog.
It could have been a hug and blaze didnt say anything, but i feel like there was something going on there.
>they try to reach out to each other just as they're sucked back into their worlds
Was probably just a hug.
You didn't even need the fucking goggles for that. Even my 10-year old self who didn't know what a lesbian was knew there was something going on between those 2
>Sonic X is over 12 years old
I need a drink
Let this emerald text run through your mind.
>There are people who became Sonic fans due to Sonic Boom
even with a hug, have we ever seen Sonic initiate affection to any of the girls like that?
honestly blaze is the best fit for him. he probably thinks of amy more like a sister or friend.
Topaz, why you so tsun tsun?
Also, Rouge and Madonna hanging out when? I mean, that is the reason she exists, to be a not-Topaz, yes?
I don't like Madonna. I want Topaz back.
Madonna is in the comic now?
Dayum, lets keep going with this obscurity.
Yeah, she's a GUN agent. Oh, and about your pic, the witchcarters are likely to show up sooner rather than later since Witchcart is in the comic (And actually took on the fan name of Wendy)
In this case, it's due to contractual reasons. The ownership of Sonic X itself is split between multiple companies: Sega owns the Sonic franchise, the company that animated the show owns the show itself, Saban owns the English dub (they bought it from 4Kids), etc. Because the rights have been split like that, no one entity can actually use anything that originated in that show.
There's no way people aren't going to waifu the shit out of that clown-looking rabbit chick, right?
I miss Topaz as well, but Sega isn't allowed to use her because they have shitty lawyers.
No, you're thinking of the Sonic Twitter
Only ones that are left (that are usable in any sense) are the witchcarters and maybe Elise, but again, the ability to use her is debateable. So yeah, the comic pretty much has every game character that is usable and not restricted by mandates/unusability due to other reasons (Storybook cast)
Depends on the personality she's given. Remember, none of the witchcarters have any personality, not even one described in the manual. They're completely blank slates, so it's anyone's guess. Though she'll get waifued anyways because the villainesses of the reboot have been generally popular. I'd even argue that the most popular characters originating from the reboot are villainsses (Cassia, Clove, Thunderbolt)
Well, she ain't exactly obscure, but.... It is inevitable.
>Though she'll get waifued anyways because the villainesses of the reboot have been generally popular. I'd even argue that the most popular characters originating from the reboot are villainsses (Cassia, Clove, Thunderbolt)
One presumes Breezie doesn't count since she's from AoStH?
You're right though, I do love muh evil electric fluffy.
Oh god, I can only imagine the utter shitstorm that'll follow her debut. Honestly, I'd use her as a kind of role model/ relatable character for Sally, since Elise would be a more passive princess compared to her, and have far more responsibility (If they keep the dead father angle, she's practically queen, which could provide a good amount to work with)
It's not hard to see why you'd forget, since she's only appeared in a back up and the 2nd half of 277 so far
More like, how would you write it so characters like Shahra or Merlina can appear without either rehashing their games or creating a major asspull
Yeah. Because otherwise I'd say one of hte most characters of the reboot is Honey, because I remember that not just us, but a lot of people went fucking nuts when she debuted
Wait, TMS animated it? I thought a different studio did.
Damn, TMS lost all its animation magic.
>More like, how would you write it so characters like Shahra or Merlina can appear without either rehashing their games or creating a major asspull
Show what happens before and after Sonic got sucked into the other worlds. Show the cast in a flashback when Sonic tells his friends about it.
>My nephew first saw Sonic through the Boom show and thinks mainline Sonic is a midget.
I shouldn't laugh, I hate Boom, but yeah.
She's also got a bit of an attitude, which is nice to see
I suppose so, though a more fun way to do that is have another story in the Arabian Nights/Arthurian world with the rest of the cast as characters in said story
To this date, I think the 268 storytime thread was the fastest one to hit bump limit. It hit it in around 5-6 hours
>Honestly, I'd use her as a kind of role model/ relatable character for Sally, since Elise would be a more passive princess compared to her, and have far more responsibility
And I'd respect you for that. What Elise really needs is a bit of fucking dignity, and to kill the damsel in distress bullshit. Some competence and no co-dependence, please.
>(If they keep the dead father angle, she's practically queen, which could provide a good amount to work with)
She IS a queen. One of the most frustrating things for me in '06 was the fact Elise's servants call her "Miss Elise". In what bull cockamamie reality does a sovereign ruler of a nation, regardless of how benevolent they are, tolerate being referred to as 'Miss'? You are the goddamn Queen, bitch. Fucking act like it.
The Naugus siblings use their magic to go to the Black Knight and/or Secret Rings settings and steal a magical artifact. Sonic and friends need to help get the artifacts back. Shenanigans ensue based on the alternate dimensions of characters (Amy thinks Percival is Blaze, Shahra thinks Knuckles is Sinbad, the Knights treat Sonic like a king, etc.). Hell, you could do an entire overarching arc on that entire premise, essentially continuing the storybook series as the comic creates interpretations for other stories like the Greek myths or pirate tales.
>She IS a queen. One of the most frustrating things for me in '06 was the fact Elise's servants call her "Miss Elise". In what bull cockamamie reality does a sovereign ruler of a nation, regardless of how benevolent they are, tolerate being referred to as 'Miss'? You are the goddamn Queen, bitch. Fucking act like it.
Or that she's still called princess. I know this is a nitpick, but I fucking hate it when princesses have their parents killed/missing/whatever and are still called princesses. You're a queen bitch, act like one. The thing is, people would get on your case for asking for competence because they think competence= ability in battle/making her Sally when you don't have to do that. Show her as a good leader putting the needs of her people first and even making some sacrifices for the needs of Soleanna. Make her proactive. Just do something with her. Elise could be a really interesting character, but she has this stigma that will never go away
I love it
>have a bird OC
>just a generic bird, no idea which species to use
>needs a redesign in general
>see some awesome looking one in a documentary
>want to use that, but still no idea how to pull it of to make him look good
>afraid that the comics will use the same species or a similar one before I can finish it
I need to be quicker!
She's probably still a princess even though the King died because the writers were fans of DBZ
That's no nitpick, that's calling out hack writing.
"Princess" is cute and safe, while "Queen" is more strict and serious. So all too often they keep the more marketable title instead of taking the promotion.
>Make her proactive.
Using that famed precision machine crafting that Soleanna apparently has to work in making weapons against the Eggman Empire is a nice start.
My headcanon for all princesses in fiction who should be queens is that they haven't been crowned yet. Because of:
1. their age
2. law and/or tradition
3. change of government
4. being stripped off their royal rights except princess stuff
5. simply not accepting it for some reason
>2. law and/or tradition
I don't accept that one.
If you're so set on having a man on the throne even though a female heir is available, your kingdom deserves to go to shit. Simple matter of pragmatism.
My dear daughter. When I tell you to marry that prince, you sure as shit will marry him, young lady!
Use Boom as a lesson for why you don't skip leg day.
Choke on a fat one, old man.
I'm so glad old Max is fucking gone. Although what I wouldn't give to see him try to push NuSally around. Nigga bout to get cut.
>these are the same guys that sung one of the best versions of one of the coolest vocal conic songs
huh, kinda surprised sega used a band who dishes out f bombs like that.
I like their sound though, have any more song suggestions for them?
>"Dad, why are you being nice?"
>"Don't talk nonsense, boy. Can't a father hug his son?"
>that awkward feel when your douchebag dad acts like a normal person for once, and you don't know how to respond
Or the fact that there is a song in a Sonic game that has the following lyrics
>Heaven can't save us, hell is a joke
I mean jesus christ really?
>Wanted to draw something for Halloween
>Decided to get
Undertalefrom never ending internet hype
I FUCKING LOVE IT
>At an impasse for the sudden crave to draw Sonic, Cave Story, and
that's all fine
i only asked because the windows port of riders supports english text and japanese voices, you could be playing that for now
i never found japanese shadow either, so when i want to hear japanese voices i just set my xbox to japanese
Does the PS2 Classics version of Shadow the Hedgehog run any better than on a real PS2? I can't find any videos of it. I know the framerate is uncapped in the PS2 version and some games run better in the PS3 software emulator.
There's a demo of the Windows port of Riders if you feel like trying it.
She's usually is cute in general.
So after a few days off of here I think Iv'e finally regained some of my sanicy.
Also I just read the LHT prologue or whatever and now that I knew what his intentions were I can understand why a lot of stuff he was writing right before the reboot happened just felt like he was slapping a lot of people in the face and now feel very sorry for him.
Really think about it: The Ian had a really good idea. He needed to slap people around a bit in order to deliver the epiphany but damn would it have been a good one. However what ended up happening was that he basically needed to stop and scrap the story completely right before he could finish it which ultimately made him look like a giant asshole to a lot of people because all he was able to accomplish was slapping his fans around.
what else would even be white that would make sense? we know her arms and torso down to her waist and thighs are flesh colored.
Frankly anything that he havent seen on her having fur would look dumb without anything else.
I forgot how cool rouges wings used to look.
>At least we got to knock him out.
Well, that's it for Not Enough Rings. I might just start posting links to Sonic voice clips next.
No problem. Also, I might as well start with the voice clips now. Here are all of Shadow's voice clips in Heroes. I plan to post one each thread.
>"Hmm, I got it."
He sounds like he got a Star in Mario Party and I don't know why.
Only if we're using the US drinking age. Most of them are perfectly legal if we're talking rest of the world (And considering how most of them travel, I'd say they've hit up a few of those countries)
>Ant : one shot and he's out
>Amy : couple of glasses
>Sonic : Six pack is enough to make him dose off
>Rotor : often goes to Sonic's worlds oktoberfest and participates to all kind of competitions
>Sally and Bunnie : what for do you think Sally asked for money from his dad
>Tails : can't stand the taste of alcohol and therefore doesn't drink
>what for do you think Sally asked for money from his dad
spooks are almost over
I guess Penders' writing on the comics was really reflective on how he acts in real life, because all he does in speak in vague generalizations with no clear answer and expect to be taken seriously
so boom Sonic has addiction to TV
seems about right
He just loves the attention, and is writhing in jealousy
He's the Derek Smart of comics, I wish there was a video like this for penders https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z2lWPv8fUk
Okay so this thread is deader the hedgehog roadkill so i'm gonna spark it up with some talk about what I think other character relationships are that haven't been explored.
Bunnie - Tails: A combination of a Big Sister and Little Brother, and Mother and Child. Bunnie is really good people person and because of that she can tell when someone is having trouble or concerned. Tails also wants to be like Sonic so he tries to hide his emotions when he feels weak or afraid or anything else. Bunnie usually talks to him and calms his feelings and teaches him life lesson while Tails not only helps her with her robotic limbs but actively tries to do the same to her when she's having issues. The two will sometimes spend long nights talking about small minor problems like how Bunnie sometimes thinks Antoine can be too passionate about cooking and how Tails can't understand girls.
Rotor - Sonic: This is mostly just headcanon since this relationship was never explored it seems. I basically have Rotor's political and ideological views the exact opposite of Eggmans. He thinks that the world would be a much better place without nations and countries and if every person was able to pick and choose their own allies and enemies. Sonic mostly agrees with him but believes that his views are too extreme and will cause too much pain to the less fortunate. Rotor responds with
"When making the mother of all omelets you can't fret over every egg."They both have respect for one another although they argue and fight a lot.
Sally - Antoine: IT WAS JUST TOAST!
I'M SO SORRY!
IT WAS JUST! FUCKING! TOAST!
Antoine - Tails: A loose adoptive father/son relationship mostly because of how much Bunnie and Tails talk to each other. Antoine will usually give him some advice that may or may not be good and Tails will sometimes play into it. Deep down though Antoine is kinda proud seeing Tails grow up.
I should probably pastebin this now that i'm thinking about it. Too much text.
My brother brought home SA2 one day, and I watched him play City Escape for the first time and was completely blown away by what I saw (Before this, the only stuff I played was Mario, Smash, and Pokemon)
Sonic 2 was my first game. My dentist had it on an arcade machine in the waiting room. Didn't really get into the franchise until I got Sonic Heroes though and up until then I didn't play any other Sonic game. I ended up getting Sonic Riders. Back then I felt bad because I wanted Ow the Edge since it was advertised in the manual in Heroes but after seeing how it was a few years later i'm glad I didn't.
Also has anyone pic to Ian yet?
idk what's worse the fact that you're posting here when you got a 360 at 9 or the fact that 06 was your first game. If you got into Sonic with 06 then you're either an autist or just really fucking tolerant of broken games like me.
I used to be able to tolerate input lag too. Then I got into competitive games. Now I can't fucking stand it. I'll still play games that are fun but when it starts lagging I get so fucking mad.
Played SA and SA2 at my brother's friend's house on Dreamcast and loved them. Eventually got a Gamecube with them both and put god knows how many hours into SA2. Also watched a bit of AoStH but didn't like it since it was so different and weird.
Sonic 1 on my mother's Mega Drive back in 1999. Didn't touch the series again until Heroes. Thing is, I never really asked my parents for Sonic games. They just kinda gave them me, I think. I don't recall ever asking my them for one.
I like your ideas
I saw Megadrive being sold on my local super market so I bought it it came with Sonic
somehow I am glad that it came with it
>Looking through random twitter photos
>Someone actually did a Penders cosplay
Jesus christ, where does the time go
Maybe if dared to in order to not puss out
>The fan reaction to both Sally’s roboticization and
Antoine’s injury was bigger than I anticipated. It
was enough that the editor and I agreed
that it was better to have Antoine live.
it was decided after he blew up
Why did that pic make me think that Elise was going to use Iblis like a stand
I just drew a attractive proportioned Sage.
Here you go anon. Hope you enjoy it.
Some feedback would be appreciated or if you have other ideas please share.
I saw something that made me melt because of cute, so I decided to try the franchise as I didn't know anything at all about it. I browsed to see what I could play, but found there were a few TV shows, and decided to try the one that was newest instead of downloading a game. Now I'm here forever.
I like your ideas
as for why you are doing this is probably because you like to play with things
that probably won't happen
I literally try so hard to not make shitty grammatical errors when I type but I still fuck up a number of times and don't see them. How the fuck does that keep happening? I cringe every time I reread my shit and see that I misspelled something or forgot to add a word or added an extra one. It makes feel like a retard.
>There are people that don't want the king in
can a bunch of people just tweet at him to cut out the vauge bullshit and just say directly what he means. just over and over again tell him hes being too fucking vauge and to be out with it.
accuse him of not actually having anything REAL to say and thus has to put on a fake air of mystery.
Probably because he is just another recolored character that people will find ridiculous at first glance.
>cease and desist
Since he's targeting LHT, a fanfic, wouldn't be surprised if he were to target a fan made game
>Since he's targeting LHT, a fanfic,
And he'll fail spectacularly if he actually does it and if his words aren't as empty as his soul. He consulted Archie constantly while making it to make sure he'd be allowed to release it. Sega has no reason to care, and the other writers besides Penders have no reason to care.
>tell him hes being too fucking vague and to be out with it
He does not acknowledge reason or any kind of logic for that matter
maybe people should fuck with him back and say they heard some rumbling that sega/archie isnt too pleased with the lara su chronicles or something like he is doing. then when hes all I KNOW YOURE BLUFFING point out the pot calling the kettle black
Notice how none of the characters have a unique "voice" and the majority of this consists of characters standing around talking. Also notice how shamelessly he apes his MXYL concepts.
Nobody does anything, says anything that relates to them, or has their own feelings.
They're all just robots, spouting exposition and saying things about themselves "I'M ANGRY AT YOU GRRR" without doing a very convincing job of it.
And that's part of the reason why he was such a shit writer, especially for Sonic. For a wide cast of characters each with unique, distinctive personalities, motivations, and feelings, a lot of them talk the same. The only one with a unique "voice" is Sonic. All his girls talk the same, the rest of the guys talk the same. Not even his own characters are unique. He introduced 1500 echidnas that all acted pretty much the same, but Bollers introduced 1, and people love it. Why? Because Finitevus has a unique design, "voice", set of motivations and doesn't just exposit about his plans like Penders villains do. HE DOES SHIT. SHOW, DON'T TELL
It's not even like exposition is inherently a bad thing, as long as it has a purpose and is done in an interesting way. Just look at issue 272 or 277. Gregorias/Lupe give exposition, but there's THINGS surrounding it, there's a reason for it, and it enhances the story and possibly gives characters a new perspective on a situation.
I think one of the most tragic elements of the comic is Karl Bollers. Poor guy had some really good ideas (and some not so good ones) and actually tried to work with some of what Penders was doing and make it interesting (Give Elias some character, make the source evil, just generally trying to add more) but he got fucked by Gabrie and Penders. Was his execution that great? Not really, but under a good editor, he could've done some really decent stuff
Another bad habit of Ken's? Arguments are always stalemates. He writes the same way two people RP'ing do. Each character is just as smart as the other character and they undercut each other in turn without either of them being any better/worse at arguing or going about things differently.
Look at that text. Rutan and Lara-Su both stubbornly reiterate their position over and over again, with the same SPEAKING PATTERNS even, instead of actually arguing. Neither of them has more of a point, neither is deflecting, it isn't going anywhere. It's a shit argument that doesn't tell you anything about either character. Only a complete novice fucks up a conversation like that.
Well, even if those scrubs don't add him, we have something better.
And that's the end of the preview
3D fangame with a fuckton of playable characters. It's pretty decent
>Look at that text. Rutan and Lara-Su both stubbornly reiterate their position over and over again, with the same SPEAKING PATTERNS even, instead of actually arguing. Neither of them has more of a point, neither is deflecting, it isn't going anywhere
Just like how Ken tries to argue his points
Well, that depends on what kind of kiss. If it's a casual peck on the cheek, then sure. If it's a peck on the lips, I'd probably be fine with that too if I really had to.
Now, if it's full on tongue on tongue, then I'd have to say no
...maybe. Oh god what am I thinking
Lucas. At least he made something of worth once upon a time. Also because he has follow through. Penders would talk shit before the fight, but chicken out when it came time because of "certain parties"
So fucking adorable
I would be fine with the first 2 ifs.
So basically 2nd base?
That's too tough to decide
I can certainly list the most underrated songs
>choosing the best Sonic song
This is the kind of song that could save lives
With >>120971187 on this one but I feel like posting a bunch of favourites of mine.
>still no proper Rush 3
>even if there was, Naganuma probably won't be on board for the OST
A cruel world we live in.
That's what gets me most. SEGA just hate good ideas as always.
>The weekend is over
>LHT peaked it's head just to get people mad over Twan's death
>Penders going batshit insane
>Didn't go trick or treating or any parties due to car repairs
>Naganuma will never make another Sonic song
>The Sally poster didn't ask what we were doing on the weekend
How lame was your weekend /sthg/?
Kinda lame, but glad we know that LHT is actually going to continue being a thing, plus I always enjoy laughing at Penders. I stayed inside all Halloween due to having no friends/nothing to do, but that's par for the course now. Overall 6/10, same as all my weekends
