I'm still waiting to see if my attempts to sign up for EI have gone through or not. Phone lines are impossible to get through.

@  furrykef : (23 March 2020 - 05:58 PM)

There's talk that they may have found a cure for the virus. Here's hoping.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 07:27 PM)

Yeah, our D&D sessions and just going out for drinks at local breweries is basically gone right now. We're thinking of doing remote sessions but it's still not the same.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 03:28 PM)

It just sucks cause my friends and I can't do our usual weekend stuff cause most of the restaurants we go to are closed or takeout only

@  furrykef : (22 March 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I know exactly how you feel.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Yeah, there's a part of me that, as an introvert, should be totally OK with the concept of staying home. But there's also a huge part of me that is incredibly unnerved by the concept of having the choice taken away. Before, it felt like something I wanted to do, but now it just feels lonely and sad.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Ah, no worries. Thanks for clarifying. <3

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:31 AM)

I absolutely recognize that this is going to have a change in how we do things, for better or for worse. There's going to be some positive changes out of this and some negative changes as well. I get this is something we haven't seen in 100 years.

 

If I came off as insensitive, I should apologize and explained what I meant a bit more.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:23 AM)

You misunderstand. My daily life consists of me going to work and going home. When I order food out I usually get take out anyways. See I work 2nd shift so my options of what I can/can't do is limited by time anyways and hasn't effected me as much, the only real thing being I can't sit down at the diner when I get out at 11pm-12am on a Friday night. So when I say I'm not changing much of my daily life it's because my routine is at a point where my interactions with people, in person, are limited to begin with

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Regardless of how you feel Covid affects you personally, there's an absolute change this puts on everyone globally, especially small businesses and at-risk people. It will influence how we look at the media landscape, how we deliver entertainment and services, and workplace practices going forward, some long term, some short, some good and some bad. These sort of pandemics don't come around with zero wake, and we've already seen that and are seeing it right now. If you don't think anything is different, then you aren't looking hard enough.

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 10:09 AM)

No, Covid is it's already costing businesses and lives, and it's made life difficult for just about everyone I know, particularly in my industry where we've having to scramble to ship games from home. What you're doing is unwise and irresponsible, and you're not the only person in existence, so you can keep your "not really".

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Not really. I'm still going about it as if nothing's different

@  GetCrazyWith... : (18 March 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Covid is going to screw up all our lives

@  RedAuthar : (17 March 2020 - 09:43 PM)

I know your pain Ben, I know your pain...

@  Shadow : (16 March 2020 - 08:13 PM)

Lucky you.

@  Wulfsbane : (16 March 2020 - 05:16 AM)

I still gotta work

@  A Fox in a D... : (16 March 2020 - 12:03 AM)

It's only boring if you make it so. I'm stuffing my quarantine with as much art as I can muster.

@  furrykef : (13 March 2020 - 07:16 AM)

Stupid COVID-19 got chess club canceled. I guess I should prepare myself for a particularly boring next few months.

What would have you done differently, with the newer issues? Go!

Everything about that stupid undersea arc.

 

The only thing that I really liked is that the undersea kingdom had a poor grasp of the land kingdom's people and battles.  Everything else about it seemed to be just filler.  The new fish people were uninteresting...they didn't solve the problem they had to be saved by a dues ex machina aka Chaos and Tikal...and for a underwater mission, they pretty much brushed off the fact that Sonic isn't the best choice for this job.  It's sad that the secondary story in the issues were the ones holding my attention.

 

Haven't really thought how to fix it yet though...

 

 

Good points. Perhaps we can start with the Sonic-underwater issue. Perhaps you could nix him out, or perhaps you could make necessary that he has to go

 

Sonic should be there since he wasn't in the second part.  But he should be more resistant about it.

Hmm...honestly, not too much. I like the direction the Newer Issues have taken so far, it's really interesting and cool! I mean we still get those favorite and familiar SatAM characters, while the world of the games is further expanded with more detail on how things work. It's a great fusion on SatAM/Archie Sonic and The Games, sans what we lost but I'd say half of the old content is better off gone. Not a popular outlook I understand but that's how I feel, after all how much do you guys love Titan Tails anyway? May I remind you of the Dalek-Squid lookalike Xorda, how about Substitute Uncle Chu-I mean Nate Morgan, The poorly executed storylines such as Home, Dulcy's very special episode, The One Color Only Robots, and is anyone here a big Tommy Turtle Fan? The Combots, who the hell likes those guys? Oh and don't let me forget The Echidna Race's Backstory, with uninspired technology, strangely robe covered Dark Legionnaire Soldiers, and THE DESTINY of Mobius: 25 Years Later! Now we can move beyond that, we don't have all that crap clogging the continuity or holding back The Comic.

That's not to say it isn't completely perfect, honestly if Sega and Archie were much more looser on Mandates and Content Usage (such as some older content Pre-Super Genesis Wave) the comic would be as close to perfect as it can get. If that happened we would get some more details in the comic due to that freedom, but what we have now I say is very, very good. I mean we are getting more unique Mobians (Waves of Change being a good example), content and concepts from the games adapted that you wouldn't expect (Again, see Waves of Change), and such twists and turns in the story that you can't really predict what will happen next.

 

You're up for a great ride and surprise which is what I want in a good comic book, and I'm happy to see how Archie Sonic has come a long way from the gag comic format to it's melodrama filled insanity. Despite all the Mandates and Limitations, The Archie Sonic Team of Today are still standing strong which is a testament on their dedication to bringing good stories and entertainment.


Seriously, HOW THE HELL did nobody know that Robotnik was evil!? I mean just look at those red, glowing, hellish eyes, oh yeah I can completely trust that guy with my life! *sarcasm*

Well, I did like the the Echidna race stories and the Xorda idea.

Knuckles was not dumb as in certain other media (e.g. Sonic Boom - [wearing semilunar glasses]“I can’t read.”) and his background was very interestingly developed.
In my opinion, the “Gene bomb” is a more plausible explanation for the rise of Mobians than mutating nuclear radiation. Perhaps a pathogen containing ribonucleoproteins, which would identify human cells, but also mutate several populations of nonhuman amniotes by accident... (ignoring the anthropomorphic spiders)
 
To the list above, I would also add the Station Square in a volcano, the Bem, feral Naugus, Robo-Knuckles, and the 109th ring. But there are other things from the old continuity which I certainly miss…

If i were to start it from scratch, Issue 1 would be immediately after Doomsday and go from there. Have the first few pages be a TL;DR version of SatAM (but have a note saying to fully understand whats going on, watch the series on Netflix or convince Cookie Jar to re-release more box-sets) and go from there. I would keep the comics independent from the games so that it is its own story and there's no resemblance from the games, just the characters are similar and maybe a few locations. But Issue 1: the immediate aftermath of Doomsday

So essentially a spin-off of the show? So you would start off like Sea3on or would you go a different route?

More or less a direct continuation of it. Maybe start it like Sea3on but then go its own route

To be honest, even though Ben Hurst originally intended for the glowing red eyes to be Naugus, I think I'd be more interesting if they were Metal Sonic's. Robotnik would essentially be gone...or so they would think. He may re-emerge at some point.

Obviously I'd have specific sega characters make appearances throughout the show, but the focus would still be on Sonic, Tails and the other freedom fighters. I'd see Tails becoming a stronger, more independent character as he comes into his own. Knuckles and Amy would likely make appearances, and because I'm a Blaze fanatic she'd appear as well. I know some of y'all aren't crazy about the Sega characters, but I enjoy them. But since the show's focus would be on Sonic and the freedom fighters, they would make minor appearances. 

Also, I'd keep Mobius as Mobius and not make it Earth. I just like it being a separate world with it's own unique lore and magic. Robotnik is likely from another world or dimension, he did have a space ship after all, or maybe there was a human settlement on Mobius at some point. 

There may have been other parts of Mobius that Robotnik never got to conquer, though I'm sure his infamy spread throughout the world. There might be other enemies out there. Sonic and company could have kept them at bay.

I'd like them to finally figure out a way to de-robotisize Mobians like they did in the comics, I always thought the neutral overrider concept was interesting.

It would also be interesting to find out why Robotnik could never find Knothole. With all that advanced technology, you'd think he'd find it eventually right?
