"Do or Do Not... There is no try."

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Oh no, I totally agree that trying to do something may help a bit. It would show that interest is still there after all these years. Hell, Mighty and Ray made a return.

@  Shadow : (21 July 2019 - 06:33 PM)

Better to try than do nothing.

@  Shadow : (21 July 2019 - 06:33 PM)

He personally may not like them, but if their were some form of collab effort to gather hand written letters, artwork, and products from all over as a yearly effort to get his attention things might move.

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:24 PM)

I would imagine the best way would be to go through Aaron, who is a SatAM fan, but there might not be much he can do

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:23 PM)

And I'm pretty sure he doesn't like the FF

@  Wulfsbane : (21 July 2019 - 03:23 PM)

The only one that seems friendly to the US fans is Iizuka-san

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 02:32 AM)

It would also mean a great investment to capitalize on a untapped western market of american characters for american fans...that is, if SoJ would ever allow it.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 01:00 AM)

Because the Archie comics kept the SatAM cast current for so many years their are many fans that would be more than willing to pay good money for seeing them in some official capacity. If only their were a way to find out who to talk to and how to reach them.

@  Shadow : (20 July 2019 - 12:59 AM)

I been thinking. Who is the most key essential person in Sonic Team who is friendly to US fans? Whoever he is would be the key essential person to find and target to bring attention to our fanbase and that their is a market for it.

@  Wulfsbane : (19 July 2019 - 10:52 PM)

Pat does theater work in LA from time to time. She's mostly retired.

@  Shadow : (19 July 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Would a 4K transfer blu ray be possible to produce?

@  Quickster : (19 July 2019 - 12:20 AM)

Unless we were able to somehow contact Pat Allee.

@  furrykef : (18 July 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Possible it was mostly Pat Allee's script. Unfortunately there's no way to know who did what on each script.

@  Shadow : (16 July 2019 - 12:00 PM)

I remember when Ben Hurst came onto this site and we got to send him notes. My favorite episode was Sonic and Sally, since it was my first episode I ever saw. Unfortunately he did not remember working on that one, despite it being his script.

@  chief : (14 July 2019 - 07:41 PM)

Yeah I did get it. Came out nice. Kinda a neat read.

 

I do want to scan it but...I dont want to fold the paper. I might try just taking some high def pictures.

@  David The Lu... : (12 July 2019 - 08:50 PM)

Heck did you get it in the mail. More importantly, have you scanned it yet because things like that need to be scanned and preserved.

Simple enough: choose a character from the Sonic games and explain why he or she would be a good match for the SatAM world and his or her role or function within the lore.

Knuckles is the easiest choice, especially considering he was originally slated to join anyway. He could have been the avenue to introducing the Chaos Emeralds progressively and eventually Super Sonic.

Though they did kind of corner themselves by implying the floating island ISN’T Angel Island. Don’t know how they planned to work around that.

E-102 Gamma would be an interesting concept to bring into the show, the premise that anything made by Robotnik could have a conscience, to the point of being a tragic creation that resents taking away a form of natural life, that would be a unique perspective and if one of the Freedom Fighters interacted heavily with him, it would be a very different moral dilemma for them.

Nearly everyone cites Knuckles as their go-to character, but I'm curious to see how they would've adapted Amy into the mix.

 

With Sally being Sonic's romantic partner in the show, would Amy's affection be a hindrance to their relationship? Or would they change her character to more of a fangirl? And considering her tarot card usage, would they play up the magical/mysticism side of her character? I can't think of any magic users on the Freedom Fighter team.

I just have a hard time picturing Any in the SatAM universe. With it's more serious tone and all.
But..at the same time..hmm..be interesting

Ignoring Knuckles and Metal, the popular choices, I'd probably go with a character like Shadow or Rouge. Someone who can ride the line between ally and enemy. Someone who is just as likely to help the freedom fighters as interfere.

A slight edge to Shadow as his dark past would be more interesting with a SatAM twist. Even if you take out Gerald Robotnik and Maria, you could still have a story of genetic manipulation, artificial creation, and betrayal.

Though on the other hand having Rouge as a treasure hunter who is more out for herself than the rest of moebius could be interesting too.

If I were to avoid a cop-out answer (although I think the justification was valid regardless of the low-hanging fruit), I’d say Amy. As much as she annoys me, her relationship with Sally would be fun since she’d have a tough time accepting Sonic’s relationship with her (plus I’d get to stick it to Amy for being a pest in doing so).

 

Also, as an aside I have plans to eventually write a story where Silver and Blaze cross over into the SatAM universe to help the Freedom Fighters combat a malevolent Solaris who is on the verge of tearing through into their reality. However this story takes place in a reimagined SatAM universe that is similar but with different circumstances. It's also a long way off (as in "once I kill off Robotnik" future plan at a point where I'm still writing the world-building chapters).

In a universe that also has Antoine and Dulcy present? It doesn't seem like that much of a stretch.

Well with Knuckles aside as the easy choice, I'd like to see Mighty and Ray. They would make a good team up trio for Sonic for missions that involves the Freedom Fighters to split up into groups.

Going with the villain route and saying Metal Sonic would fit in this series pretty well. Roboticization is a key element in the series already, and though he isn't a roboticized Sonic in the sense of the other slaves, Robotnik could come up with the idea to create him after failing to actually capture Sonic and turning him.

I'd go with Metal Sonic, then Rouge. The first one because the idea of Robotnik renouncing to roboticize Sonic and make a robotic imitation of him instead would make a pretty good arc. Then Rouge because I like her kind of independent attitude (I really dislike the very meek, passive interpretation of the post-Adventure characters and she's an exception to that behavior rule), and her interacting in the very factionalized universe of SatAM would be interesting as well.

 

I wonder how Shadow would integrate though. Could be a way to introduce the human colonies Hurst mentioned but that would be tough.

I always believed that Metal Sonic WAS the roboticized Sonic and when I put it all together, I was horrified.

CD was all about time travel.  In order to stop Robotnik from resetting everything after the credits, you have to use the power of all the Time Stones or travel back in time in each zone to destroy the Robot Generators in the past.  You can see the effect Robotnik has on each level in the Bad Futures.  They are all desiccated wastelands full of rusted machines and poisoned, polluted terrain. 

If you look at Metal Sonic, himself, when you reach him for the boss fight, he's the only robot you don't fight.  He taunts you with the classic finger wave and challenges you to a race.  None of the other robotic Sonic clones do this.  They just mimic Sonic and attack.  Metal Sonic doesn't even really attack, he just rockets forward with his jet engine and occasionally sparks.  

The final piece of the puzzle comes in the lyrics of the Metallic Madness Bad Future theme (JP).  "You can't win, so don't even try,"  "Don't do what Sonic does,"  At this point, if you're in the Bad Future of Metallic Madness, you're not going to get the good ending.  "Don't do what Sonic does," as in "you've failed and will have to try again." But the final lyric of the song is, "Sonic, dead or alive, is MINE." 
 
Metal Sonic isn't just some shoddy robot built by Robotnik, he was the result of what happens if you fail.  Robotnik wins, devastates the Tiny Planet and enslaves Sonic.

It's really weird how that whole concept was never brought to its conclusion. From Sonic 1, Robotnik steals magical items and turns animals into robots. Sonic is an animal. Whoops, now that we have dialogue, he doesn't do that anymore! He keeps powering his facilities with relics, but he's the Joker or something.

SEGA just doesn't know what the hell to do with any of it.  I can't take the villain seriously when the sidekick is smarter than he is.  Batman doesn't lose to the Joker (ok, maybe a couple times), but the Joker accomplishes things.  The Joker's already set fire to a a building by the time Batman intervenes.  Robotnik as he is now is just a complete waste.

Robotnik should have just been a villain instead of the villain in the game series, since SEGA didn't utilize him properly to the point where he became a joke. They could have had other big bads akin to Naugus with their own motives for Sonic and friends to stop. Instead we have Robotnik and his shtick completely played out to the point where he's basically the Team Rocket of the series now.

He could have been used as a semi frequent villain instead of it always having to be him in every game. They should have just worked on creating a good variety of baddies for Sonic to face. Hell the Joker is recognized as Batman's number one villain, but he's not always the antagonist in each story arc nor does he need to be.

I guess it's a case of "monkey see, monkey do" since Nintendo seems to have the same problem with their franchises.

It seems SEGA tried to go a bit through that way with Sonic 2006 (Mephiles not being a mindless god of destruction), but we all know what happened. Robotnik/Eggman not being a buffoon would trigger the cries and the lamentations of the True Sonic Custodians™ that Iizuka listens to.
