You are trying too hard Penders, go to bed like you keep saying.
>Goodluck to you trolls trying to get on our forum!
Still looking for the drawfag who made this with Sonic. If someone has it, please post it.
It was on the booru.
Using the wikia template:
Green Hill (Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)
Oil Ocean (Sonic the Hedgehog 2)
Sandopolis (Sonic 3 & Knuckles)
Red Mountain (Sonic Adventure)
Final Rush (Sonic Adventure 2)
Night Carnival (Sonic Rush)
Game Land (Sonic Colors)
No real Opinion on the bosses.
Gah! I forgot all about the booru.
Thank you kind Anon.
>When you ask Ken why he did something, don't accept what he tells you, essentially calling him a liar, then take his reply and turn it into meanings he never intended, that's troll behavior in my book.
>Hey Ken, the French on your page is wrong.
>Ken: NO IT ISN'T YOU'RE WRONG
>Yeah, it is wrong.
>Nuh uh, I know better than you!
>I'm from Belgium.
>Oh. I'll pay you to rewrite it then.
What a troll.
>Hey Ken, your Spanish is wrong too.
>No it's not, someone from MEXICO said so!
>Hey Ken, as a Jew I'm offended.
>You're wrong to be offended, I know the plight of the Jews better than you anyway.
>Hey Ken, it's considered rude as hell to take pictures of cosplayers without their consent, and even moreso to post pictures of their asses online.
>Naaaah son it's fine, I said so.
Yep, nothing but trolls.
But it's funny, and I'm impatient for Bunnie and Deer Sisters in the meantime. You know, stories involving female characters that don't have people addressing them as "the females" and don't revolve around them mindlessly submitting to their husbands.
Uh, do you want consoles, or I presume handhelds? If we're going with the latter:
>Game Gear Era
>Bridge Zone (Sonic 1)
There are like only two memorable Game Gear games so I need to pad this sucker out.

>>All posts have to be moderation approved before allowing to be posted.
Oh I'm not surprised. I was a member back when any Sonic-related talk could not be about material written by Karl or Ian. That didn't last long. I wonder why.
Don't forget that it's troll behavior to suggest that blatantly hypocritical actions are hypocritical.
>No judging my work unless you've read it!
>Haha Ian's work sure does suck
>But Ken! Haven't you said you've never read it?
>Lol I don't need to
>tfw reading the thread since I left
>tfw just got here again after BobR is leaving
I believe that still exists, if anything outside of Ken is mentioned, you are banned on his forums. Was banned myself last year because mentioning Ian is a "no no" As put by this troll and ken
m8, I hate Penders to but there is no fucking reason for a jewish person to be offended that he cribbed a poem from popular culture
stop looking for reasons to be mad where there are already so many
Check the other thread out, there is no excuse from what was said.
Also any other cute photos of the characters doing their hair in different styles? Only one I have.
Not hairstyles but this works, right?
Archived thread then. https://boards.fireden.net/vg/thread/121294453
This is the Rin Edition.
More cute here
What is your favorite moment from the Sonic games?
>all these deleted posts
Looks like I missed some serious shit storm and for the better to.
Thanks but no thanks, it's better off not knowing.
It'll be stolen like everything else he does and claim it to be his.
>that knuckles on the screen that isn't even drawn by him
It actually was.
The first part of MXYL has a shitty intro expositing garbage that doesn't establish that the story is a "what if" future very well. Because of this, Penders had a full page he whipped up real quick with Merlin talking about visions from the future precede it. That Knuckles is from that page.
That SINGLE page and the "Father's Day" story are the only ones he drew himself, so he's blowing his load a bit early.
The pre-final boss cutscene of Black Knight
>It was never about chivalry for me. I just gotta do what I've gotta do, that's all!
Squid Girl is cute and we need more art of her and the other Egg Bosses
Just something that feels like they understand the original appeal of Sonic. Boost was nice but felt lacking in a few places, especially after 3 [3D] games of it. Have some split paths with some requiring dexterity and skill to get to and others that require the player to explore a little bit to find on top of the normal main path. Have Sonic control well but have weight, cap the speed he can gain from momentum if you have to or just give an exponential decay to the speed gain so it doesn't reach uncontrollable levels from just moving around the stages.
I wouldn't mind something another story that was radical for the sake of being radical again. I feel like that fit the whole 90s thing Sonic was going for as a character and design. I think it would work too since there seems to be a lot of nostalgia for the 90s lately.
Cohesive to say the least. Know what it wants to be, understand the characters, etc. aka not P&G.
Crazy. Lighthearted but gets serious when it needs to. Lush environments and modernized cityscapes like it used to be.
Something like Unleashed had. Black Knight has my favorite but it fits the style of that game specifically better than it would for Sonic overall.
Both the buttrock and the orchestrated music are great but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a boner for the buttrock and Crush 40.
I'd mostly like Sonic Team to stop focusing on all the stigmas that the fanbase has been spewing for over a decade and stay focused on making an cohesive enjoyable experience for the player. Friends aren't problem but they shouldn't get in the way of the gameplay. Being "edgy" isn't a problem but it shouldn't be the whole gimmick/selling point of a game. Etc.
They also need to give themselves enough time to complete what they want to do on top of having a scope for what they want to do.
So how about Amy Rose?
Does amy rose always been in love with sonic?
New headcanon, Tikal traveled the world and met Sonic's ancestor Penelope
She's not perfect, but that's what makes her likeable (In some of her incarnations). I personally prefer other girls to Amy (like pic related), but she's fine too
Well it could just be an Alt. version of himself.
One idea I had for a small fanfic was that FFs and SSs get stranded onto another Mobius and have to be broken up by their version of Team Sonic. That version of Sonic was more lazy then Boom, Knuckles was trying to be a rapper but kept making shitty mixtapes and Tails was basically Scourge in fox form and with more brains.
It's easy to see why I never wrote this though and I'm pretty sure some of you remember what the original idea was.
Amy Rose is the sweetest and sassy hedgehog I ever know.
I picture her more like pic related. Really a damn shame we didn't get to see the Moebius versions of more characters
Would she make Death Metal and have a horrible screechy voice unless she was death growling?
Or would she have the softest and cutest voice in the world since Prime Mina could of had the screechy annoying voice?
Either that or a sultry, seductive voice that sings very raunchy songs that are pretty much "Sex, drugs, and more sex" compared to Prime Mina's child-friendly sugary sweet music
Good god that would be her.
>They someone come together and make a collab album together through their love of music.
>It's Hardcore Techno-Metal.
>Parental supervision advise.
So if Tails marries her in some form of timeline would that mean that Miles listens to metal?

Aww man, must have been awesome.
Geezus Herbert Crust, how horrifying
>Called out on how he was supposed to deliver this in 2012
>H-he's just a troll, ignore him
It may be full of words, but it's vague as fuck. Everything is relative , a made up metric, ambiguous, irrelevant to the character and/or about her family. We don't even know how tall she is.
>Using marks and stones in 2015
>Making her 15 but also THE GREATEST WARRIOR EVAR and giving her THAT outfit
>That entire family tree
>Still nothing about who she is as a character, just her "history" and "accomplishments".
>Listing her first appearence as in a comic from an entirely different publisher from 10+ years ago
This is embarassing. Penders is too detailed on shit that doesn't matter, and too vague on shit that should matter. Simplicity is often key in creating good characters at first. Start simple, and get more complex as the story progresses. That's why people like the FFs, or Batman, or really a lot of characters. At their core, they're very simple, clearly defined characters, and their complexity arises from the story, their actions, and their characterization. None of that is present with Penders' version of Lara-Su, or any of his characters
And out of all of those, Jani-Ca is the only semi-interesting one
Oh, and the fact that actions speak louder than words, a fact with Penders' writing seems to constantly forget. We're told what characters are supposed to act like (Knuckles being a guardian, characters being manipulative, Julie Su getting hatred for being a former Dark Legion member), but we're never shown these things in any meaningful way.
Intellect's ambiguous and can just mean she's a quick thinker. She's "trained to ride Dragons", but Sonic had plenty of experience with that too.
Everything else is just Sonic, except with super speed switched for being good at languages.
I dunno, it just seems a bit "too much" especially since we barely saw any of this in Penders' version of the character (Which again, I wouldn't mind since this is a different version, if it didn't set itself on being based off of that version of the character. I'd be more ok with this if it was Jani-Ca, because she'd have a reason to develop these skills, because like Sally, she was forced into a leadership role/ fighting a gigantic evil asshole from a young age and would need these skills to prevent herself from being murdered horribly by Enerjak.)
I don't remember Sally being especially intelligent outside of tactics and I don't even think she's trained in martial arts anymore. I also don't remember her being fluent in other tongues or there being other tongues to be fluent in.
That is true. But the difference between the 2 characters is execution. Sally has been done really well and we've seen her exhibit these traits. Where in any of Penders' stories did we see her as exhibiting any traits besides being a complete brat. Hell, where in any of Lara Su's incarnations (Outside of Jani-Ca to an extent) did we see her exhibit any of these traits. Again, this would be fine if this wasn't a direct follow up to Penders' MXYL.
She was generally good at hand to hand, but Bunnie was the one who had some martial arts training (Judo).
You're a good man. Just replace Eggman with Battle Lord Kukku (if you want) and it's perfect
Generally good wasn't exactly anything special when most of the characters could outspeed or out power her or were actually trained in hand to hand. Though, preboot she was trained extensively by that giant lion dude she vaporized with the stupid-ass sword.
He's a troll because Ken kept saying that all these people love the app he's developed (which he refuses to even provide a screenshot of), but none of said people use social media, so that's why no one sees anyone talking about it. That guy wondered why none of those people were talking and Ken was like "Why should I listen to a troll like you?"
She was never trained by him. She was trained as a four year old by the sometimes-brown-squirrel-sometimes-pink-cat lady who apparently taught her all her SUPER SKILLZ from her fucking deathbed because Penders.
No, he was just yet another of King Acorn's higher ups who was plotting against him, because Ken is devoid of creativity or original thought. It's a good thing he didn't also write King Acorn as having access to a magical device that would let him see the future and guide all the decisions of his rule, otherwise he would have noticed that three members of his court were plotting to overthrow him.
/v/ sonic threads are generally terrible.
And it seems that a lot of the anti-comics fags ended up migrating over there, so you can't bring up anything in comics without someone saying "OH HERE COMES THE COMIC FAGS RUINING EVERYTHING", even if you're agreeing with them.
I'm basically a Sonic virgin. A while ago I bought Generations on Steam, loved it, and am about to finish all achievements and S-Ranks.
So I guess I'm asking what other good Sonic games are on Steam. Should I start 1/2/3 or go straight to SA1/2? Are there any hidden gems I should get? Any shitty ports I need to avoid?
Start with 1/2/3&K (If Steam only has 3, emulate 3&K as one game. This is important). Then play SA1/2. Someone uploaded a Heroes ISO in the general a while back, but I can't find it. Play that only if you're curious. As for other things to play that you can on PC. Advance 1-3 should be emulated, and finally emulate Colors. You should be good there
If we banned comic discussion this place would die in less than 300 posts.
The CD port is amazing.
1, 2, and 3&K should be emulated but if you don't want to the collection that has them on Steam is fine.
Every port of SA1 is a varying degree of awful and the Steam version is one of the worse ones. I think someone somewhere had a MEGA of the 2005 PC release but I forgot to save the link for times like this. The Steam SA2 is ok as far as I could tell.
I will warn you. The Adventure games aren't as consistently good as Gens and their age shows and aren't nearly as good as 2 or 3&K.
Emulate 1 & 2 (or buy/emulate the mobile remasters), emulate 3&K, and buy CD which is the remastered version.
I've heard that the steam port of SA1 isn't very good, but I haven't had much issue with it. SA2's port is fine for me.
Pirate Heroes for PC (it's not on steam) or emulate the Gamecube version.
Lost World's port is an odd case, but you could give it a shot or pirate it.
The day that Merna pops up in the comics, I don't want her as a merhog, but maybe have a special suit/apparatus that makes her like one when moving/breathing underwater.
I mean, why would there be actual merhogs in this day and age?
The only proper Sonic games on Steam are CD, Generations, both Sonic 4 episodes, and the two All-Stars Racing games. Everything else is either literally an emulation (all the classic games), or a bad port (the Adventure games, Lost World).
Which consoles do you already have? Usually the best bet is to get whichever Sonic games are for those consoles, if any, along with emulating the classic games.
Wouldn't that kinda take away something from her character though? I mean the general appeal of her is that she is a mermaid/hog. Though Ian said she wasn't going to appear it's a moot point.
As for the second point, well, in a world like Sonic's where we have dragons drawing a line at merhogs seems a little arbitrary.
Sonic CD - Stardust Speedway
Sonic 2 - Metropolis Zone
S&K - Lava Reef Zone
Advance - Ice Mountain Zone
Advance 2 - Techno Base Zone
Advance 3 - Sunset Hill Zone
Rush - Dead Line
Rush Adventure - Haunted Ship
Colours - Asteroid Coaster
Same. She's quickly become one of, if not my favorite character of the reboot.
Not exactly. For all we know, her torso could be cybernetic. There's a reason both sisters are wearing unrevealing clothing outside of it being a uniform. For all we know, Cassia could have more cybernetics than Bunnie
I'm reposting this since the other thread was deleted. Ken wants you all to know that account creations are now banned due to trolls. So, Relax, people. This has nothing to do with anything new. Simply put, Archie has reneged on several points they agreed to for the settlement they signed (like that was unexpected considering they totally ignored the first agreement they settled on…and it ended up costing them even more money. They just seem incapable of learning anything.)
Look at it this way. You agree to paint someones garage for which they’ll pay you $1,000. You paint the garage, but every time you go to collect no one is home, or they don’t have the time to spare, or they make some snide comment about not liking the color (of the paint they supplied.) Would you really ignore that situation claiming,”It’s just a $1,000. Big deal!”
Wouldn't Archie Comics be the painter since they're the ones producing the material and Ken keeps finding reasons to dispute the product/lack of product they put out? That's a really bad analogy.
>Look at it this way. You agree to paint someones garage for which they’ll pay you $1,000.

I think this is more accurate: you accept a job to write about someone else's property, one in which you hold no inherent interest. You do so understanding that it's considered work for hire. Only instead of writing about the material you're supposed to be promoting, you use it as a platform for your own sci-fi universe because you know you can't get it published any other way, all while ignoring or replacing the focal cast with your own uninspired and underdeveloped concepts. When someone finally tightens the leash, you decide to simply cut your losses and leave, only to find that said licensed material is the only reason anyone knows your name, and after several unprofitable years, you look for loopholes so as to grasp at whatever money you can while creating a grand total of three comic pages over the course of several years and a handful of merchandise no one will buy, all while spitefully debasing the work of anyone who dared to have success after you left.
Stop enabling Pendersposting, please!
You are responding to it, why don't you get out.
SA1 had such a good soundtrack
Find the 7 Chaos Emeralds and a princess!
>thats not turkey day
but now I'm thinking about it, Sonic characters eating a turkey is pretty weird. I mean WHO was the turkey? Jet?
Try posting some other cringe that hasn't been posted a million times similar to The Other M
Team Dark is the best team. Prove me wrong
No. Sonic needs more guitars and drums.
I'd be perfectly happy if they made a Tails game with DnB and Glitch hop though.
This reminds me of those PETA ads where they have abused pokemon.
Should have had the superior Sonic for the OP.
I blame the company who made this mascot.
It's either that or Nasuverse, and I feel like my survival rate in Nasuverse would be in the single digits. Just living knowing that Sonic exists, and seeing him in the news kicking ass is enough for me.

I blame Newspaper comics
But I want to walk by and experience
>Blue blur always blasting by at the speed of sound disturbing my peace of mind
Only without it actually disturbing my peace of mind.
This isn't the Erma sketch I wanted to do. I didn't like how the other came out, so I'll start it from scratch. It has Sally in it as well. Now have this one instead for reasons.
Neat, that makes this the 3rd pic of this character that I know exists.
I think wanting to live in a certain fantasy world has more to do with setting. Sonic's world in both instances has some comfy as fuck locales and a relatively low chance (compared to other universes) of horrible death. I'd rather live in the Pokemon world (Because fuck yeah battles) but Sonic's nice too
Find peace knowing a stole a kids dinner money after wrecking his pussy-ass team and s/he's probably starving tonight while I sleep comfy.
Sonic X's Sonic was good, but the rest was kinda crap. Season 1 was tolerable, then it all went downhill
You mean K'nox the Praetorian who is totally not Knuckles because he has a robot eye, hat, and beard.
Because they have no taste.
So guys, whatever happened to the Large Hadron Collider experiment? Did it create that portal yet? I've already packed all my things in anticipation.
Nope, nothing probably happened, and nothing was ever going to happen. It was just retards who can't into science freaking out over the word "black hole" even though the black hole was the size of an electron
A tall human vs a short animal. I'd rather be a tall human.
But humans are savages that destroy the environment, and cause genocide to animals.
>Implying Mobians aren't just as smart as Humans
Man, fuck this shit. Post remixes
But Egg Rocket is a different niche. It's "Riding a gigantic goddamn rocket with a time limit"

Jesus christ, we need a fucking game announcement already
Bunnie=Sally>Nicole>Ant>Rotor. I like them all though, and I'm eager to see how they're used as the reboot goes forwards, especially after Unleashed wraps up and we get into the original stuff
Planet Wisp just doesn't do it for me without the bass
Antoine trying to carry Bunnie princess style and failing because of her heavy bionics. If not that, then just draw whatever that yellow coyote thing is from the cover of SU84,
>Not like there's much different between Mobians and Humans besides height
Different species with different body parts and giant heads.
They both have arms and legs. Not sure how the giant head would matter when none of the Sonic characters have an issue with it.
>They both have arms and legs
Anon those aren't the body parts most would be worrying about if changed.
Besides even if I were to change what if I don't get cool powers to make up for my changed life?
>Anon those aren't the body parts most would be worrying about
Are you referring to the nether region? I wouldn't worry about that too much. Mobians have to reproduce somehow, no?
If you don't get a cool power, you'll still get to experience a society of mobians as a fellow mobian.
Sonic was well rounded and had distinctive flaws his ennemies eventually used as much as they coukd in the limits of sega's legal binding.
Lara may not have such limits, so I fear the entire thing may turn into a fanfiction real fast.
>Lara may not have such limits, so I fear the entire thing may turn into a fanfiction real fast.
>Implying it wasn't already
When the basis for your grand project is one of the most despised arcs of the entire comic and the one that almost killed the comic, you're already fucked
Anon, penis size doesn't decide your worth in live. You have to look past it!
You mean like Dave the Intern, or knuckle clones 2000 who's a complete fool and everyone hates you?
The only way I could love my body more than now is if I became a giant Barbobot,
you think Eggman can legionize me to become one?
>Posting the version for Archimedes.
God I hated that prick so much
It never hurts to ask. If you do end up in Mobius as a Mobian, be sure to go to Eggman's HQ, and ask.
Do you think he'd just do what you asked for without a catch though?
The Chaos Emeralds will probably just teleport you through time&space back to the human world again with your human body intact. Goodbye to Mobius.
I wouldn't be able to do that.
oh my fucking god I love you.
>tfw first request granted on /sthg/
I didn't find Act 1 bad. But it wasn't that enjoyable for me since I was heavily focused on collecting shit rather than finishing the level as fast as I can and I couldn't figure out the parkour shit so I missed out on a lot of red rings.
Act 2 isn't that bad either once you know what to do, but I'll admit going there blind was a huge pain. I had no problems with the stealth missions though.
Act 3 was starting to test my patience since I kept dying all the damn time, especially in the end, but I think it isnt so bad anymore.
Act 4 is fucking garbage for one thing and one thing only, the goddamn drill wisp. The controls are more ass than Superman 64. Everything else was good (except the Zor boss fight, had to camp to win which wasn't fun) but holy shit I can never understand how to move that damn drill.
Once I got used to the stealth, it was no problem, but the fact that there's no breathing room is bullshit. How hard would it have been to have had getting spotted be equal to taking a hit? You still suffer a consequence, but it's not cheap. Oh, and the Rhythm wisp is pointless and controls like shit. Though Silent Forest as a whole wasn't as bad as Frozen Factory, which was just shit from beginning to end
B-But.... think of the trainwreck.
I want to believe penders is a magnificient bastard actually banking on the fact that he is an horrible writer, and that the face he shows on the internet is merely a personna.
Nah, just kidding, he has as much depth as the characters he writes.
All these posts about not being a Mobian makes me sad. What if you were with Sonic and shown how life is like?
Actually yes, it lasts until the comic's forced to reboot. Granted, she went to Beau's to get cybernetics (And legionized) because she realized that her being organic wasn't exactly helpful to her or her friends.
Thing is, while Skelly would fit better for actual stories, Gray has improved. Remember, the problem with his art for the Dark Ages is that his art didn't fit the tone and he was just starting out. I could see him doing well. I mean, he did do a good job on the Breezie cover for 268
What? Does this make you upset or something?
I wonder how well they taste.
His art is a bit more cartoony feeling but it's not that bad. The Breezie cover looks great.
got shard done. elias might be next. dont hold your breath if youre still around.
So whose everyone's favorite Artist for Archie Sonic Comics? Patrick Spaziante is normally my favorite but I do like Tracy Yardley work
Gotta go with Bates. He really does everything well, from action scenes to calmer scenes to comedy, he just makes it look so good.
Penders, his stuff looks so awesome!!
[spoilers] And when I mean awesome, I want to bleach my eyeballs [/spoilers]
To be fair, his non Archie stuff is great, he just dropped the ball hard when it came to Sonic
