Wow, this place is dead. Rest in peace. *Prays*

Jeff Hardy: I won't do Swanton Bombs/High Risk stuff as much anymore because of my previous injuries.

 

Also Jeff Hardy: Let me do this insane spot with ladders, a table and the Cell itself.

This is the part of the conversation that I think it's safe to abort mission. Tis why I normally don't speak in shout boxes, as small talk becomes the driving force. What started off with a complaint about a season then turns to a comparison of objective pros and cons. Could've lead to a pretty healthy debate xD. Now is probably going to degenerate into opinionated preferences for seasons or change topic altogether. Boring.

@  Uncle Ben : (13 September 2018 - 09:47 PM)

I'll argue the autumn. Perhaps it's due to the foliage for me as well as fresh apples and the start of maple syrup season.

What he said. This guy never lies V

@  Ishapar : (13 September 2018 - 02:25 PM)

I prefer winter because it is unique. When else are you going to get skating, tubing, and snowball fights?

@  ShenFNWoo : (12 September 2018 - 08:59 PM)

I'll take black ice from here to within 100 miles in any direction instead of that. At least I know what I can do about it.

@  ShenFNWoo : (12 September 2018 - 08:58 PM)

VS gang violence because it's too hot and people can't sit still? Bugs every damn where? Frequent horrible thunderstorms? All other pests out in full force? Heat that you can do nothing about once you get outside? No holidays to speak of where you get a full week off? All the kids outside and running amok because school is out?

@  Shadow : (12 September 2018 - 10:59 AM)

Two words: Black ice.

@  ShenFNWoo : (12 September 2018 - 05:55 AM)

You get one thing: It's cold enough to make rain turn into snow. That is all.

@  ShenFNWoo : (12 September 2018 - 05:55 AM)

That's why winter's the best season. The least amount of BS happens

@  Shadow : (11 September 2018 - 08:14 PM)

Summer- the only season where your town can burn to the ground and then be flooded

@  Clocktopus : (11 September 2018 - 04:10 AM)

'Tis the season

@  Ishapar : (10 September 2018 - 08:12 PM)

Rain 3 days in a row. I guess a hurricane is coming along the East coast.

@  Uncle Ben : (01 September 2018 - 07:20 PM)

ALL IN might have been the best wrestling show I've ever seen.

@  Misk : (23 August 2018 - 04:08 PM)

unless it was the phantom ruby. Then it makes total sense.

@  Ishapar : (23 August 2018 - 09:03 AM)

A little bit mixed around, mate.

@  Shadow : (18 August 2018 - 08:37 PM)

one day I saw a ruby, playing with a child the size of a tangerine.

@  Ishapar : (16 August 2018 - 03:44 PM)

Eh, I prefered the 64 version. It had the right balance to difficulty and fun. I prefer the game as it relies more on the character's skill at controlling Mario rather than relying too much on powerups (which would explain my fondness of Genesis Sonic games).

@  Misk : (16 August 2018 - 02:48 PM)

Camera was way better too.

Sega Doesn't Own The Post-reboot Stuff Either...?

[Archie Comics headquarters, 2013. Ken Penders can be seen marching off into the distance with his characters.]

 

Archie: Whew! That was a fun lawsuit!

 

[Sonic runs up to Archie and hands him a stack of newly-printed work-for-hire contracts.]

 

Sonic: Here you go!

 

[Sonic runs off.]

 

Archie: Huh? What am I supposed to do with these?

 

Jughead: I know!

 

[Jughead eats the contracts. Archie and Jughead start doing the Can-Can.]

 

 

... That must be how it happened. If you don't believe me, listen to what Ian Flynn says here. Sounds like the post-reboot stuff is in the same boat as the pre-reboot stuff!


In other words, all material ever created for the Archie Sonic comic is legally off-limits to Sega. Raise your hand if you're still wondering why they revoked the license. xD

 

What this means, in practical terms, is that you won't be seeing the likes of Thunderbolt, Nicole [as a Holo-Lynx], or Eclipse showing up in the IDW series. 

 

Archie Sonic Online definitely softens the blow, and as far as I know, the DiC stuff is on solid grounds.  Still, it leaves me wondering what exactly is going on at Archie HQ, lol...

This was known for a bit. I think back in January he tweeted about not being able to using his post-reboot characters.

 

I mean he does say there's a very slim chance but this has been known for a bit.

True, he did say that originally. But later on he clarified that the reason was that it was a new comic, that they wanted to let it be its own thing for awhile, and that down the line we might see some of the Archie stuff crop up.  We were never given any reason to think there was a legal issue there.

I would guess Sega has some legal ownership of characters post-SGW to prevent another instance like Penders made but again, Archie has been silent on the issue since the contract ended last year.

Then you have precisely the same understanding that I had right before listening to the clip that I linked to above!  And that is why I came here to post about it!  xD

It's a very odd situation.

 

I know Aaron wants to talk about it but there's a bunch of legal stuff that's preventing him from doing so

Indeed.  The nice thing is, it looks like Sega can do whatever they want with the IDW characters; I could see that leading to some cool stuff down the line.
