Because they tried hard. But they got caught with budget and don't understand the tropes. I just hope the "ololol Forces sux green eyes" memelords didn't kill this one in the egg

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:14 AM)

Buuuuuut I have to admit I'm really intrigued by what they tried to do with Forces, I don't know if it's a new direction or a low-budget cookie thrown to western fans "so they shut up".

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:13 AM)

But of course they would get anime'd to oblivion.

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:12 AM)

He trying hard to push the "meme" direction since 2009, Sonic 4 and the Pontaff writing. IMHO the only way we could get decent FFs is if they get popular among the Japanese crowd and if Sonic became popular with that crowd to begin with.

@  Sunnyfruit : (23 July 2019 - 02:10 AM)

It seems like "Mania Sonic" is what Iizuka thinks western Sonic fans want.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 July 2019 - 10:29 PM)

Well, Iisuka-san is getting the chance to make the NiGHTS game he wanted to make for a long time. Might be good for him to do something else for a spell

@  GamemasterAn... : (22 July 2019 - 07:45 AM)

Or, if we want to go a more direct route, show them all the times that corporate interference in story writing actually made things worse. Examples include many of Hasbro's mess-ups including killing Optimus Prime (the face of the franchise), the mess with Derpy and not knowing what the word "derp" actually meant, and the "Fame and Misfortune" episode debacle.

@  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.

I found this at a church yard sale last year. It was headed for the dumpster, so I decided to rescue it. With a fresh set of batteries and some tin foil I was able to get the sound effects working. Someone already posted photos of the pages, so I've uploaded the sounds here. If anyone wants the book, I'll send it to you for free. It'll save me the trouble of listing it on eBay. Also, if anyone has a Sonic Retro account with wiki access, do your civic duty and add this stuff to their page.

i find it odd for a book like this....to feature such characters like the Freedom Fighters.....yet Sega themselves allow it to happen.....and ironically in the book, it says that the characters are trademarks of SEGA, copyright 1995.......makes you wonder....hmmmm.  Anyways, nice find

Man, those are some terrible sound effects! Not to knock your work at all, Frieza; it's not like you designed the things. But it seems strange that so many of the icons have character faces and there isn't really an identifiable voice among them. I'm guessing the voice actors would have demanded royalties...

I was thinking the same thing! I was actually going to try playing all the sound effects as I read through it to get the full experience, but I stopped after two pages because it was making it even worse. I'm guessing the Knuckles button is supposed to be the sound of him punching, but he never attacks anything the entire book! Sally's got an explosion after her giggle, and there's never a time she blows anything up. The rings play the game sound of Sonic getting hit and losing his rings, but the sound is never used in that context. It's like the writer and the sound designer never spoke to each other.

 

Ben, you're welcome to it. I've got no use for the spare change I'd get for selling it, so if you're interested just PM me your address (or, if you don't want to give it out, I could meet you somewhere since you're so close, assuming you're not away at college).

I remember seeing that book once when I was a kid; before I ever knew anything about Sonic.  I need to look up those images.

 

Hey Uncle Ben, enjoy the book!

Thanks for the image links!  I remember some of those images now, but I never what they were about when I was a kid.  I think it is funny that the book has a mixture of themes from AOSTH, SATAM, and the SEGA video games series.  Guess that was the American Sonic in his glory days.
