Go ahead and make one then. It only takes a minute to make. Seems we have to experience it to believe it, so let's go.

@  Quickster : (21 May 2019 - 12:09 AM)

I agree with Shadow; we could use a Discord channel.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 May 2019 - 09:07 PM)

Most Social media is a mistake.

@  furrykef : (20 May 2019 - 08:50 PM)

Twitter is ideal for people with very short attention spans. People with names similar to Ronald Dump.

@  Shadow : (20 May 2019 - 03:52 PM)

I only use twitter to look at nsfw art that got exiled off tumblr.

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Notification addiction IMHO

@  Ishapar : (20 May 2019 - 01:27 PM)

Never understood the thrill of Twitter. Why do people use it so much when it is basically just a bunch of little "tweets"?

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:21 PM)

Anyway nothing's worse than Twitter.

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:20 PM)

But as an archiving medium you can't do better. I'm happy to have read both the notes Hurst left and the elaborate posts made in the heat of the moment, something that couldn't have happened on a simple static website+discord.

@  Sunnyfruit : (20 May 2019 - 01:19 PM)

I prefer forums but they aren't made for small talk. Given that not much happens about SatAM they aren't the best way to communicate

@  Shadow : (20 May 2019 - 01:12 PM)

Skype completely shat on everything good MSN messenger had going for it. I miss the custom smilies and nudge functions, plus the avatars that were bigger than a thumb print on screen were nice...

@  Ishapar : (20 May 2019 - 12:36 PM)

I used to use skype a lot until Microsoft made it necessary for you to have a Microsoft account to use Skype. That stinks.

@  Shadow : (20 May 2019 - 12:23 PM)

Certainly better than what Skype turned into.

@  Ishapar : (20 May 2019 - 11:15 AM)

Good clarafication, ShenFNWoo. It's pretty much the reason why I don't see the need to go after all these social sites and apps. If people want to communicate with each other, they will do so with what we currently have.

@  chief : (20 May 2019 - 10:08 AM)

Discord will probably take over. Ive gotten use to it now and use t for everything but our irc

@  furrykef : (20 May 2019 - 09:57 AM)

We've still got an IRC channel... but yeah, we might switch to Discord.

@  ShenFNWoo : (20 May 2019 - 06:09 AM)

Matter of fact, most users like that tend to just mute all of the servers on their list and wait to be mentioned directly before saying anything to anyone. Even in discord servers that I run where the rule are lax and the only way to get banned is to be mind numbingly dumb and obstructive, people only flock to the meme boards and shitposts. So it's really, "Why is it always dead around here?" = "because we don't try", and no manner of being nice about it is going to help out with that.

@  ShenFNWoo : (20 May 2019 - 06:05 AM)

Not that I'm trying to stop Ishapar from using discord, as I always think it's better for him to make use of IMs more, but people who don't make the effort to talk in a community behave similarly on an IM. That's why most people on discord are lurkers who don't do anything but sit around saying nothing.

@  Shadow : (20 May 2019 - 03:51 AM)

It's just a better way to socialize than forums.

@  Ishapar : (20 May 2019 - 03:13 AM)

I never used Discord before.

What is your involvement with the Sonic the Hedgehog series?
I’ve been writing comic books about Sonic the Hedgehog since 2006. I’ve written two episodes for the tv series Sonic Boom, and have had material featured with the games, but not the actual games themselves so far. You can find a full listing here.

Why did the Archie Comics Sonic the Hedgehog comics end?
A variety of reasons. I do not know any of them first-hand, nor are any of them public.
I will not openly speculate about what happened.

Is it true the Archie!Sonic comics ended because of lawsuits?
No.Lawsuits were responsible for the reboot of the narrative, but they were not the deciding factor for the series as far as I know.

What were your plans for the Archie!Sonic series?
I will be compiling my pre-reboot and post-reboot plans in a series called “Lost Hedgehog Tales.” It has been put on indefinite hiatus as various private factors are worked out. These are all beyond my control. You can find more information here.

What was your involvement in the Sonic franchise’s transition from Archie Comics to IDW Publishing?
None. The ending of the series caught me by surprise, and I had no idea what the future held. Once I learned IDW Publishing had acquired the license, I had just as much a chance to write the series as anyone else. IDW Publishing reached out to me in large part thanks to fan demand.

Is IDW!Sonic canon to the games?
No. The comics are inspired by the games, but they are their own story.

What characters from other Sonic the Hedgehog properties can we expect in IDW!Sonic?
For the moment, IDW!Sonic will only be using elements from the “Modern Sonic” side of the franchise. Presently there are no plans to bring in any elements from any of the cartoons or other comics.

Will the Freedom Fighters appear in IDW!Sonic?
They will not appear during Year One. Beyond that it is up to SEGA to decide if they are accessible to us.

Will [Character] show up? Will [Game Event] be referenced?
I cannot spoil future events of the series. You will have to wait and see.

Is it true Mighty, Ray, and other characters will not appear in IDW!Sonic?
Yes. At the moment, SEGA has requested a distinct division between “Classic Sonic” and “Modern Sonic.” Since IDW!Sonic is set within the “Modern Sonic” universe, the “Classic Sonic” material is currently unavailable to us.

Who are your favorite Sonic characters?
Knuckles, Dr. Eggman, Bean.

What are your favorite Sonic games?
Classic: Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic Mania Plus
Modern: Sonic Colors, Sonic Generations

What are your favorite Sonic music tracks?
All of the Sonic soundtracks are spectacular in their own way. I have a very hard time choosing one song. If it’s a lyrical track by Crush 40, you can assume I love it.

Can I submit a character and/or story idea to you?
No. For legal reasons I cannot look at, consider or accept fan-created material.

STRAIGHT ANSWERS!!!!  A SHEN IS HAPPY!

 

....WITH THE ANSWERS....

 

Will not be buying the comic.

 

 

BUT

 

 

 

From what I saw of issue 7, uploaded on youtube by some Amy-something or other, it doesn't look bad.  Only got 3 minutes into it, but felt nostalgic for some reason.  If they get some complimentary characters similar to Sally or what have you that help build sonic as a character in directions that make him interesting, I'll start picking it up, and may backorder all the previous issues.

I'd think by now we would get a definitive answer if they weren't going to be in.

 

I wouldnt expect them to be in until at least mid/late 2019

Possibly, but it also still be in the process of deciding. SEGA being adamant about not including any Classic game characters in the comic is making me feel a bit unsure about it.

But they're technically not Classic. They're not even game characters at all*.

It's not that they aren't game characters that makes me worried; it's the fact that the comic is trying to appeal more to the Modern Sonic brand - a demographic which the Freedom Fighters weren't really considered a part of - that has me concerned.

Sega made up a "classic" franchise to get cash out of pseudo-nostalgia. It's not the case of SatAM and they don't really care about what happens with the comics as long as it doesn't get controversy or step on their new toy's feet. The only case where the FFs would be outright banned is if Sega plans to make it another subfranchise like Classic or Boom.

 

Personally, I feel absolutely no Sonic 3&K, CD or OVA vibes from Mania. Mania is a pure Western product of the 2010s, which btw isn't bad in itself.

I can kinda get that. It's a fun game in and of itself, but it's not completely authentic of the time period it's meant to be imitating.

 

I mean, if it really were meant to be the missing SEGA Saturn title that everyone compares it with, chances are it wouldn't have returning levels from previous games or even fan-favorite characters like Mighty and Ray being featured. But that itself doesn't make it a bad product though; there's clearly a lot of effort put into it, and I can appreciate that.

Mania is a very good game with great music and excellent level design, it's my favorite platformer of the decade with Freedom Planet. But some choices were strange: Ray was just a forgotten recolor before his return, and cutting Mighty from the Chaotix was just cruel.

There were supposed to be 5 teams for Heroes and Mighty and Ray were on one of them apparently.

If Sega of USA is approached I'm sure they wouldn't mind so long as they aren't connected to the Sega casts' backstories.

I'm not so sure about this. Remember how Sega of Japan threw a fit because the Sonic Boom team planned to add another inventor than Tails.

And also, how BRB got stabbed in the back and forced to make a Wii U release.

And also, how everyone just lashed at BRB as if they were lazy incompetent devs.
