Well the player base went up exponentially since the switch.

@  wildfire : (05 October 2019 - 08:39 PM)

Probably to help Bungie now that Activision's money isn't backing them.

@  Wulfsbane : (03 October 2019 - 06:33 AM)

Destiny made the move to Steam.

@  Wulfsbane : (09 September 2019 - 10:12 AM)

We'll probably see Tracer soon

@  Shadow : (06 September 2019 - 10:48 PM)

I'd rather see Mai in Smash

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 09:05 AM)

I'm more surprised about the Fatal Fury character.

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

Really wasn't keen on the idea of Sans being playable, but I guess he's in the same vein as Ness/Lucas

@  Wulfsbane : (06 September 2019 - 08:00 AM)

I think it works.

@  GamemasterAn... : (05 September 2019 - 06:53 AM)

So...Sans is a Mii Gunner costume for Smash. Comments?

@  Wulfsbane : (31 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Alright, AEW's All Out was pretty freaking good.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 August 2019 - 06:22 AM)

The Knux will Layeth the Smacketh Down all over your Candy Ass!

@  GamemasterAn... : (20 August 2019 - 05:59 AM)

"Finally, the Knux...HAS COME BACK...to Angel Island!"

@  Wulfsbane : (19 August 2019 - 07:26 PM)

Strangely I can see it.

@  Shadow : (18 August 2019 - 10:39 PM)

Imagine Dwayne Johnson voicing Knuckles...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 02:31 PM)

The Rock has come back? XP

@  chief : (17 August 2019 - 02:26 PM)

http://www.sonicsatam.com/sea3on/ finally...

@  Wulfsbane : (17 August 2019 - 07:40 AM)

Good to hear.

@  chief : (13 August 2019 - 07:27 PM)

We are in talk with background artists actually...

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

some traditional cel painted backgrounds would be lovely.

@  Shadow : (13 August 2019 - 12:54 AM)

Is their any plans on what might be added if the budget reaches a certain quota?

Worst part:  the annoying anime cliches.

 

Bad voice acting...

 

Background characters acting very dumb...

 

Epic moments being overused with character's sighs/groans...

 

Grown ups acting like immature children (or even babies)...

 

Human characters having weird hairdoos...

Anime does have some pros, but I really get tired of seeing the same thing in every anime.

 

As for a specific scene, it's kind of tricky, but I have three irks:

 

1. Anytime Amy gets fangirly obsessed with Sonic.  She wasn't bad all the time, but sometimes her actions made me embarrased watching the show in front of my parents.

2. Anytime Knuckles is portrayed or being referred to as dumb by the other characters.  At least Cream still respects him...

3. Anytime a human character (especially Chris) acts like a crybaby.  It maybe a cliche of anime, but still it is pretty embarrising.

Everything about it. I'd rather put up with the bad musical numbers from Sonic Underground than get through a single episode.

Well, at least the English opening is better than anything Underground ever coughed up.  I did like the bit in the first episode where Sonic is drowning in the pool, and he's trying to run his way out, and they start playing the "Drowning" theme.

Yep, of all the places to land Sonic creates a huge cannonball in a rich kid's swimming pool.  His fear of water was really hyped up in this series, but at least that fear did give him some breadth in his stale persona.  Cruise Blues, anyone?

The series would've been more tolerable if they had replaced Chris with Helen instead. She was way more relatable and sympathetic than Chris ever was, and her episode with Sonic was one of the better episodes of the entire anime.

True, but unfortunately, Not a lot of Sonic's Adventures would be Wheelchair accessible.  I feel it would belittle the character and the show itself if they were constantly finding ways to get her around or alternatively not allowing her on the adventures because of her condition.  Is it doable?  Absolutely, but if it's done wrong, it would make things worse.  

 

Though, If I were to do the show with Helen instead of Chris, I'd probably tie her into the Tornado's transformations.  Perhaps Tails attempted to build something to help her get around that he later replicated into the Tornado's walker design.  I'd also play off the fact that her family isn't Rich.  There isn't unlimited funds which means Sonic and co would have access to the state of the art equipment and there'd be less grounds to hideout on compared to the huge mansion.  Not saying their dirt poor, but what Chris sorta provides is a good hiding place and unlimited funds in which to equip and have wild adventures with.  Helen's family can't do that.  So rather let it be a hindrance, have the show use it.  Have Sonic frequently take her places she can't normally visit.  Rather than attempting to hide Sonic and Co from her Parents, involve them nearly from the start, and allow them to fill in roles on the team that they probably never would have before.  

 

There'd be a lot of different angles you could take this one.

I sorta liked the character of Chuck Thorndyke though, so I'd probably keep him as Helen's grandfather. His laboratory/garage would probably serve as a better outlet for building and storing equipment than just leaving it in the house, and the attic would probably be a suitable hiding place for the Mobians since hardly anyone visits their attics. It'll be like "E.T." meets "Back to the Future".

 

Though looking back at it now, it's hard trying to picture Chuck without hearing Rick Sanchez's voice.

I always thought that Chuck Thorndike was kind of a shoutout to Sir Charles. Like Chuck is the human version of Uncle Chuck. Thoughts?

If he were an uncle, maybe. But Chuck is a pretty common name so it's still unknown whether this was a direct reference or not.

 

If there was a more obvious shoutout to SatAM in "Sonic X", it would've been the return of the Power Rings. But I also noticed that the squirrels that inspired Sally's look (Ricky) have blue eyes exclusively in the anime, which could be another possible homage.

Wait, Chuck and Rick are voiced by the same guy?

No, though that would've been pretty funny if it were.

 

Both characters bear such a strong resemblance to each other that I can't help but hear Rick's voice coming out of Chuck. Couple that with Chris' insecure personality and you got a perfect match for Morty.

 

It's likely that both Chuck and Chris were influenced by the same characters that spawned Rick and Morty, Doc Brown and Marty McFly from "Back to the Future".

I think that was mentioned somewhere that the head translator never played the games or watched any of the cartoons, so if it is a reference it was likely either accidental or done by someone below him.

Emotional impact, in an anime? How absurd! We can't have believable characters, we need everyone to be superheroes who are never challenged unless the script calls for it, then they just transform and win anyway.  Feelings?  Development? In a show for children? HA! Like anyone would watch a show like that.

No, he's just another cartoon caricature of Albert Einstein. Nothing more.
