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.

"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.

Today on Twitter, the official SEGA account provided a link to a survey they've set up so people can tell them how they're doing.

 

I think we should all take this survey and tell them we want the Freedom Fighters back.

 

Here's the link: https://games.sega.com/survey/

 

The survey is pretty long, but it contains some fields that let you type in your own answers.

Believe Sega does this once a year. Thogu it's a little more in depth than it was in the past.

 

Done

First question had to deal with gender issues: what?Not sure how this survey helped us out as it didn't get in depth about the sonic franchise.

And in case you're wondering, the space key isn't working in this post so forgive me for the weird looking message.

Sorry, I left Ishapar in 1.5 speed. xD

There fixed.

To answer the first question, why the gender question: all surveys ask a general gender question. It doubles as a way to avoid bias, by giving it to multiple groups, and a way to see who is buying their products.

Basically this, they use it to see which products are resinating with what demographics. It's also why they ask for age too.

 

They want to see if Product X is working with Y Gender in Age Group Z and if it isn't then they need to rethink their strategy.
 

For Sonic I would assume they have a target in mind, probably aimed towards younger groups, and want to know if they are suceeding or not

But why the big deal about gender identity?  The first question seems to make a big deal about your stance on gender identity.

 

Redauthar, what did you do to my typing speed?

Perhaps they might be considering the interest in a homosexual or transgender character for the franchise?

 

Granted, that idea has been explored in other Sonic-related media, but the games themselves never touched the subject.

I kinda doubt they would do a character like that. That's a Pandora's Box right there in of itself. Sonic, while mostly is for all ages, seems to have a target audience of kids mostly. Subjects like that might not mesh with them, especially with parents too who may want to wait a few years to explain those kind of things. Sega can get away with it in a series like Yakuza (cause it's more mature oriented) and Persona (because Atlus is freaking weird) but for Sonic would draw some controversy.

 

Plus I'm not too sure how Japan views those subjects.

 

I know Ian kinda had the "implied but open ended" aspect between Sally & NICOLE and Aleah did mention they had an idea to have Clove be a lesbian but they didn't outright say it for either of the two and it was after the fact.

Redauthar, what did you do to my typing speed?

To find out who is buying. Is it worth appealing to that market, or would it hurt to? That's ultimately what the purpose of the whole survey to see if it is worth putting money into expanding.

And for the second question ... oh....kerxt...your breakin.... tunnel..... click.

There's another Survey. This one is specific to the mobile game SEGA Heroes.

 

https://heroesreques...racter-requests

 

They ask for feedback on what SEGA characters you'd like to see in the game. Pretty standard fare, BUT...

There's a place at the bottom for write-in nominations.

 

You bet your butt I wrote in Sally Acorn.
