Now that all the parts have arrived, I'm not in any mood to actually build the PC.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Welp. The good news is my RAM arrived today. The bad news is I'd misread the package tracking, so my mobo and fan are coming late.

@  furrykef : (30 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Groan. All my parts are supposed to get here today, except my RAM shipped late, so it will get here Wednesday. And there's no DDR4 RAM anywhere else in the house.

@  furrykef : (23 November 2020 - 04:17 AM)

Well if KingConnor's post on page 4 is accurate, then it does appear to be too good to be true. Sure got my hopes up when I started reading the thread. Would definitely buy the game if they'd do it.

Streets of Rage Remake. The C&D on that was the big thing that made me give up on the idea of fan works of Sega properties.


Oh, right. I wonder if they were planning to do something with SoR themselves and didn't want that to compete. It was sort of an anomaly.

Sure?

 

So do you think SEGA is still not considering putting the FF into a game even with Boom kind of out of the picture?

Is there any official reason as to why they haven't? I can't help but wonder if it's some kind of pride that keeps them from using characters made in the US. Hell the comic has (sort of) rebooted, just give the FF a go already.

From what I can uncover, it seems to be a mixture of indifference and legal embargo.

 

However, Sega of America is legally capable of inserting the Freedom Fighters into their developed games if they have the desire to. But since they've already created "Boom", it might be a bit of a stretch for them to start another spin-off franchise so soon.

I will give you guys this ray of hope.

 

From what we've seen so far, Sonic 2017 appears to take place in a bad future where Eggman has already taken over. If that's the case, it's likely that there's some kind of resistance movement which they may well name the Freedom Fighters. It will most likely be composed of standard SegaSonic characters like Tails and Amy, but if that's how things go then maybe there'll be a background character named Sally.

 

On the other hand, it's a Sega of Japan game and they almost never acknowledge the western apocrypha. I think the closest we've gotten was the revival of chili dogs in Sonic Unleashed.

It would be neat to see the FF in this game, but it looks like it's focused on Modern/Classic Sonic.  I doubt there will be an appearance of any of the ff.

There has to be more characters in the game itself than what was already shown. Having only two characters featured is hardly what I would call a "resistance".

 

More than likely, the resistance will comprise of SegaSonic characters. Whether they're playable or not remains to be seen.

I have to bring up a good point by Frieza. I got the exact same feeling from the trailer and as we know from the original comics and Sonic Underground the Freedom Fighters were also known as the Resistance and the Freedom Fighter Resistance. To be honest this is going to be our best hope of getting the Freedom Fighters in the games and I honestly think that with this development the reply I got from Rafa Knight was a ploy to try to lure me off the trail of their true plans as Sega is known to do
And to be honest this game teaser screamed Blast To The Past from SatAM

Now, I do not think that just because the word "resistance" the freedom fighters comes out in the new game. More characters are not needed for resistance. If we go by official characters there are many. Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Cream, Team Dark, Team chaotix, Blaze, silver. The point is that in my opinion all these characters of sega are to form the resistance. It is a good oportunity to see the characters of sega again playable in the new videogame.

I can agree with that Asami89 however unless your going with a Sonic X Final Battle style team-up (Last Battle against the Metarex at the end of Season 3), Most of those characters generally keep to themselves like Knuckles who doesn't want to get involved in the affairs of the world at all and just want to do their own thing. Like Shadow doesn't care about what Sonic does unless their missions make them cross paths. Tails and Amy of course will follow Sonic into battle. Blaze and Silver may work with Sonic if they show up, and Cream will stay out of the fighting as much as possible basically being sideline Cheerleader support however I do agree with you in that if they decide to change things up since this is a completely new game they could meet up however it is somewhat unlikely since for example in Sonic Generations most of the Characters you save weren't at Sonic's Birthday until the end of the game like Rouge, Shadow, Blaze, and Silver so they only showed up in the story because you saved them from the Time Lock.

An interesting thing!
I think that when Rafa Knight mention there might be some cameo related to freedom fighters, she referred to Sonic Boom Fire and Ice, I've played while ago and I found a surprise!
In sonic house, there are a comic of sonic the hedgehog!
I guess that's the only cameo that are related with sonic archie word.

I wonder if Sega thinks that making a darker Sonic game about resistance to already victorious Eggman is enough reference to satisfy SATAM and Archie comics fans without committing to a new canon universe among their games. Theoretically they can even reference "other members" of resistance, who are never shown on screen and never called by name.

 

Using actual FF characters would be a lot better though. I might even read past StH#50 comic to understand all this new Genesis Wave universe stuff and redesigned characters. Currently I sort of want to stay in a world of SATAM s1-3.

Here's the catch: if Sega introduced any reference to the FF in this game, won't they have to gain permission from Archie?  And with the past issues, I am not sure if Sega wants to interfere with Archie.

 

Also, I know many people get turned off from newer Sonic games because of the amount of characters in the newer games.  While the comic/show fans are fully aware of the FF, there are plenty of game fans who know nothing of the FF: adding them to the game would be no different than creating another Sonic character.  I think Sega is aware of this issue with the fanbase.

 

So you only read up to issue 50?  You and I are on the same boat!

I believe they could be really vague about resistance members and show (and reference by name) only established characters. That way the main characters can act like they aren't the only members of resistance and they can reference "guys at the base" or something like "resistance squad #21". A couple of minor details added and you can imagine your favorite characters being out there in the field on another mission or coordinating teams at the base.

 

Yeah, I stopped at issue #50. I more or less read a short summary of later issues and couldn't bring myself to shift my beloved SATAM universe to what Archie has led it into. Even if the later issues are great (maybe, I don't know), for me it all revolves around Sally. If I ever stumbled upon somebody saying the story gets really great and he/she as a SATAM fan is happy to read the recent Sally story arc, I'd strongly consider reading #51 and onward. Sadly, I've never seen such an opinion.

I've read all the way through the current releases Nightmus and I'm afraid it's true, her character did not get treated well (Issue 134 anyone?). I still thoroughly enjoyed the read, but there were definitely some questionable writing decisions. Thanks to Sega's mandates, the writing is heavily restricted now. All we get are occasional hints - or more like acknowledgements - about her and Sonic like having him carry her or showing her blush after he tells a story/joke. She does get to participate more directly in combat now thanks to her ringblades.

 

Ish, I'm pretty sure Sega has free reign with those characters if they so choose. They were the ones who kept Sally from being killed off years ago and the FF did get a small cameo in Spinball. Afaik, the only entity keeping Sega from putting the FF in a game is Sega. I could be mistaken of course.

I've just read Lost Hedgehog Tales ep1, a short text by Ian Flynn, where he explains some of his decisions. Even though I didn't read the comics, it was really interesting. Looks like all he was pursuing with Sally's roboticisation is suspense. What I gathered from it, is that he aknowledges that Sally is the cornerstone of the comics and he likes the character. That's something.

 

I read somewhere about the new guidelines Sega decided to follow, that Sonic will not participate in any love interest relationships and will focus entirely on adventure. The goal must've been to avoid alienating various shipping fans and leaving that to one's imagination. Not the worst decision in the grand scheme of things, but still. SATAM was 99% Sonally.
