Well the player base went up exponentially since the switch.

@  wildfire : (05 October 2019 - 08:39 PM)

Probably to help Bungie now that Activision's money isn't backing them.

@  Wulfsbane : (03 October 2019 - 06:33 AM)

Destiny made the move to Steam.

@  Wulfsbane : (09 September 2019 - 10:12 AM)

We'll probably see Tracer soon

@  Shadow : (06 September 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I'd rather see Mai in Smash

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 09:05 AM)

I'm more surprised about the Fatal Fury character.

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

Really wasn't keen on the idea of Sans being playable, but I guess he's in the same vein as Ness/Lucas

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

I think it works.

@  GamemasterAn... : (05 September 2019 - 06:53 AM)

So...Sans is a Mii Gunner costume for Smash. Comments?

@  Wulfsbane : (31 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Alright, AEW's All Out was pretty freaking good.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 August 2019 - 06:22 AM)

The Knux will Layeth the Smacketh Down all over your Candy Ass!

@  GamemasterAn... : (20 August 2019 - 05:59 AM)

"Finally, the Knux...HAS COME BACK...to Angel Island!"

@  Wulfsbane : (19 August 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Strangely I can see it.

@  Shadow : (18 August 2019 - 10:39 PM)

Imagine Dwayne Johnson voicing Knuckles...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 02:31 PM)

The Rock has come back? XP

@  chief : (17 August 2019 - 02:26 PM)

http://www.sonicsatam.com/sea3on/ finally...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 07:40 AM)

Good to hear.

@  chief : (13 August 2019 - 07:27 PM)

We are in talk with background artists actually...

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

some traditional cel painted backgrounds would be lovely.

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

Is their any plans on what might be added if the budget reaches a certain quota?

I think for Lost Hedgehog Tales its less the characters and more taking script material Archie has copyright ownership over that Ian Flynn might get in trouble if he releases it on his own.

 

True, but it seems odd that certain characters which SEGA should technically own are restricted from use by legalities. Who else would claim partial ownership of them if not Archie?

 

 

Not wanting to deal with Ken's BS if it involved his characters?

I really doubt it's Penders; not after all the crap he caused.

 

I was referring to the Post-Reboot elements and the SatAM cast. Ian has confirmed that he and the other creators involved had signed over the rights of their creations to SEGA/Archie, but now that SEGA is no longer partnered with them and said elements are currently in legal limbo, it seems as though Archie might've retained some control and is preventing that material from channeling over.

 

At least, that's my best guess.

But at this point in time... and probably any point in time now... the characters made for Post-SGW that Archie has control of are essentially useless to them. I highly doubt Archie would make their own comic with the characters.

 

Then why prevent them from channeling over?

To be honest, I don't know the reason either. All that we do know, though, is that IDW cannot continue the Archie Reboot continuity or reprint any of the issues despite the license being shifted to them. It's possible any original and exclusive content formally associated with them was also prevented for the exact same reasons.

 

It's especially baffling given that, as you said, the material is practically useless without SEGA's license. But if Archie has somehow retained partial ownership of them and cannot do anything with them without SEGA, then they're pretty much in limbo at the moment.

 

But if, say, SEGA decides to purchase them to transfer over to IDW or they're waiting for the permits to expire, we could see something come about. But that's only guesswork. We don't really know the direct cause of all this is.

Could be artist copyright. Certain countries do have laws that state the image goes back to the artist when ownership runs out.

I'm pretty sure Ian said that they signed the rights of their creations over to SEGA/Archie.

I'm sure they did but I imagine the fire that Archie HQ had destroyed those documents along with the Penders file. Hence the scrapping of all in house Archie characters for their reboot to avoid a future lawsuit.

Well, it's not really the pre-reboot characters that fans are concerned about, it's the reboot and SatAM characters.

The only thing I can really think of is that SEGA wants to start with a new, clean slate with IDW and not want anything to do with Archie's run, primarily the last few years.

 

In theory, Archie could make something with the Post-SGW characters as their own standalone comic, but who would honestly purchase that if it didn't have a hook like Sonic.

 

I would think SEGA is waiting for time to expire or drive the price down to fully transfer it over to them/IDW. At the same time, I'm curious if Archie is trying to convince SEGA to do one last "super issue" that covers post SGW to the end and close lose ends but now, nearly 2 years later, seems highly unlikely.

That's probably it in a nutshell.  Test the waters with the "official" group and expand later.  

 

Honestly it's how IDW handled Ninja Turtles, Transformers, GI Joe, and others.

I'm just hoping SEGA's lenient enough to allow Ian and the other creatives some artistic room to further develop the series with what little elements they have available at the moment. Given how strict they were with their official characters during Archie's run, the exclusive/neglected characters were a welcome addition since they weren't so limited by their constraints.

They mentioned last year when they first talked about it that Sega could be more lenient in due time.

 

 

Also, apparently Joe Hughes has left IDW

Let's hope so. Lord knows the game cast could certainly use some fleshing out.

Yeah, just learned that myself. I wonder how the comic's quality will be affected by is leaving.

I doubt it will be affected that much. Seems David is the main man in charge
