This is so true. I just wanna build on this by saying Sonic's whole life revolves around his friends let me give you some examples. Sa2 and Space Showdown Sonic X: Chris and Sonic Attempt to change Shadow Pov on earth and Maria vision for a better future Sonic X and Sa1: Sonic and Tails meet for the first time Sonic finds out Tails is a genius and Tails grows and becomes more confident as time goes on.(@Frostyu then the brotherhood in the comics) (I cried reading House of Cards Arc) Silver and Blaze meet in Sonic 06 and build off each other in the Idw comics because they both are lonely. These are a couple of the big examples of what makes Sonic-Sonic.
In the end of the second movie since it looks like they are going to merge Sonic 2,3 and Knuckles together i would love them to Merge the Adventures together and Shadow And/Or Chaos to make a cameo at the end. I have been waiting for a Sonic Movie since i was a little boy and now that it came you know i was celebrating.
I think this relates to the topic. Classic Sonic is finally dying (sorry classic gamers) CLASSIC SONIC IS OFFICIALLY DEAD-PREMYDAREMY I wanted it to be off the Idw series but Ian Flynn confirmed he has nothing to do with it. I hope it isn't Sonic Boom season 3 because that just bringing more hate to the franchise A continuation of Sat-Am would be cool but i dunno if Jaleel White is up to it. A continuation of Sonic Underground would bring Deviant Art fans joy A continuation of Sonic X would bring me joy ( and of course others!) If they base it off past games i'll give it somewhat of a chance It all depends what direction Wild Brain is going in
Silver has been apart of Sonic's history ever since the dreaded Sonic 06 but do you ever wonder what would happen if we had a Silver game. After all Silver has got a lot of attention in forces he had two cutscenes in Sonic Team Racing he replaces another driver. In Idw he is a crucial part of stopping the world from the metal virus if we put all the pieces together Silver has shown himself to be worthy of a spinoff and this is how i think it should go. Silver should have his own team (Team Future) It would be Silver,Blaze,(Robot Rep). Silver and Blaze meet up with Eggman Nega and SIlver finds out he wants to go back in time and make sure Sonic was never born so they team up to stop him. Along the way they work with others because Sonic has so many friends and without him they wouldn't be who they are today. (So its kinda like it's a Wonderful Life one life touches so many others). For example Shadow would destroyed the world if Sonic hadn't shown him it wasn't what Maria wanted. It gonna be sorta like Spider 2099. I only have the basic ideas for it but tell me what you think
Well I get that. I mean modern IS what the kids these days are familiar with, so it'd make sense to stick with something that's familiar. Plus ya know, Classic didn't talk? I mean yes you can make short eps like Mania Adventures did. But a full length series without any speaking might get difficult?
Tyson Hesse will not participate in the series from Netflix, which he announced himself. He also added that there will be no Classic Sonic in the series due to SEGA's intentions to stick with Modern Sonic.
Sorry I'm late. Hey guys, still alive. Just coming back to say Thank you to Skye and Geoffrey for the Birthday wishes. ^^
I'm doing fine, thankfully haven't contracted the bug yet if you catch my drift, just hanging about and playing games.
Due in no small part to my own faults of being so easily distracted by everything, even now I still haven't gotten the time to get back to work on my own project with Sonic. I never stopped thinking about it, the only issue being I can't seem to stop thinking about it to actually write something into it...That seems to actually be my main issue with a lot of projects now that I think on it. XD
But yes, I hope you lot are havin a nice time here, hope everyone's ok, and healthy. Know that, though I can't say I'm here still. I'm here in spirit.
PS. Read a little of the new Sonic comics, my personal opinion so far: Not bad, but hasn't quite reached Archie's level yet.
In the meantime, this is what I've started doing for ASO:
For those of you who follow the ASO Tumblr, after a bit of a hiatus, character QnA’s are back. Obviously, there’s a bit of a backlog, so we have taken a random selection from the pile, and will continue to post a group of QnA’s every Friday. It will take us a while to get through the questions in our inbox, so for now we’ll be focusing on the questions we have. So please don’t send in any new questions for the moment. We’ll let you know when we’re caught up, and submissions are open again. Also, keep in mind we won’t answer every question, as some might be too spoiler heavy, and others might be answered already by in comic events. But you can check out the batch we answered this week on our blog right now! https://blog.archiesoniconline.com/
You're writing a story about Nicole and Mina making music together and bonding after the events of Changing Tempo? I'm SO IN! I love these two, and a story about them has so much potential! Did you get to choose the characters and setting to write or were there assigned by editors? Also, I'm digging the artwort, love it so far, looking extremely professional. If you told me it was drawn by someone already working in the IDW books I wouldn't be surprised: The lineart is veeeery clean, looks cute and has a very clear manga feel I'd like to see more often in Sonic stuff (wish i could draw anything remotely as cool as those panels T_T) that kinda fits Mina (being a rock idol that could star in a musical anime) and Nicole (a character that can potentially get into Ghost in the Shell-ish territory) Seems you have an artist that will probably make justice to your script!
Johnny Lightfoot, Mobotropolis "He will see me now? Thank you!" Said Johnny as he bowed to the guard and entered the room. "Greeting Your Majesty! I am Jonathan Lightfoot, but everyone calls me Johnny. Thank you for this audience" said Johnny as he bowed to the king.
Mighty and Skye, Feral Forest "Oh no! They must be under attack! We have to help them!" Shouted Mighty as he ran into the town. As he entered the burning town he picked up a car bonnet that had been broken off. He ran around town using the bonnet as a shield while trying to find any civilians he could help.
Geoffrey, Mercia As he was leaving town she saw a piece of paper fly past him into a near by bush. He ran to pick up the paper and saw it was a photo of Josh, Larry and their parents. "This photo, it must have blown out of the wreckage of their home. I should hold onto it so I can give it back to them when I catch up with them. Actually! Josh dropped off that letter from my dad, he went on an adventure with Chuck and maybe Josh went with them. If Josh went then Larry would have too. I should check out the ruins of Chuck's house to see if there is some clue to where they went" thought Geoffrey to himself as he went back into town heading for the ruins of Chuck's house.
E-series101Beta, Winged Fortress Beta had left the briefing room to prepare his troops. Once he had made sure that all were armed and prepared for the attack, Beta opened communication with the briefing room. "All forces prepared for the attack. Awaiting orders to begin assault" said Beta over the communication.
Ian and Larry, Badlands bunker Ian left Larry to do his training and headed to a room in the back of the bunker. The room he arrived at was a very dusty command centre. It had several military files scattered across the room. Ian ignored all the files and headed to a box near a doorway on the far side if the room. Inside the box he pulled out a file, "Enough time has passed, maybe I can get some answers at last" Ian thought to himself as he placed the file under his arm and entered the doorway.
Around half an hour later Larry's training was interrupted by Ian saying "How is the training going lad?" When Larry would look at Ian he would see, Ian wearing a dark green band around his head, a brown bandana tied around his neck, a camoflague t shirt under a sleeveless miltary jacket. He also had a belt on with three pouches on the left two on the right with a sword. On his back Ian had a backpack that seemed fitting for a camping trip.
Finally arriving at the port town, Shard snuck out of the cargo hold and stealthily got out of the town.
Using a vantage point and cross-referencing the area with a map it obtained, Shard began planning it's route to Mobotropolis. It wasn't too far from where it is now thankfully, but hopefully it can start uncovering it's purpose soon. This is getting annoying...
Josh and Chuck, Chuck's Lab, Knothole Village
"Woah! This place is awesome!" Exclaimed Josh as he and Chuck entered his secret lab.
"It ain't much but it's an honest workplace. Now, let's see if we can find what I came here for..." Replied a half-distracted Chuck. His old lab was about the size of a small warehouse, set up almost like one too scattered with all his old projects.
"What's this?" Josh picked up a light blue bangle and slid it on his arm. "What'cha think Uncle Chuck? Am I styling now?" Chuck turns and chuckles. (*chuckle*)
"Took you long enough to realize you looked drab! Hahaha! Try clenching your fist, Josh." Replied Chuck. As Josh closed his fist, a beam of light came out from the bottom of the wrist forming a blade of light extending a small ways from his fist.
"Hahahaha... I figured you might like it. Prototype weapon designed to increase mobility yet maintain effectiveness. It was originally intended for stealth but as you can see, the sound and light kinda give it away."
"Regardless, this thing would be 'handy' to have!"
Chuck simply gives him a blank stare, prompting Josh to deactivate it.
Chuck walks over to Josh and motions for him to sit down next to him. "So what do you know about your father?"
"Well... Aside from the fact that he traveled a lot when he was younger, mom always said that he was a navigator of a cargo ship for the Kingdom of Acorn."
"She always thought that he should've stayed home and not gotten involved with his old job again. Which reminds me, I have something here for you. Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your mother wouldn't allow it." Chuck puts a metal cylinder in Josh's hands.
"What is it?"
Asked Josh as he picked it up and pressed the button on it. A light blue blade of light came out of the top, slightly less than a meter in length, it made a distinct sound upon activation and hummed quietly. "T-th-this...this thing... It is beautiful..."
"This is your father's 'Photon Saber'. It was the weapon of a brave man serving the Kingdom. Not as Clumsy or random as a gun. An elegant weapon, for a more civilized time."
-------------------- Elias, Casino Night Zone
Still trying to defend themselves, the fight continues on. Elias had cut through at least two dozen? No, more like four dozen bots already.
"Not good Vector! We've got more company!" As Elias steeled himself ahead, a small motobug rushed towards him.
"Oh, you're approaching me?" He confidently remarked. A blow from the back caught him off guard however, but Elias quickly recovered and turned to see a large robot in time for it to smack him off a distance away into the "Per Schin Rug Store". Thankfully it wasn't a hard landing, but Elias was concerned as he drew his eyes front was the large robot. He knew exactly who that was.
"Well frick. If they got him then… no… no way she'd let them take their son." Elias recognized it as Doug. Anger was building up in Elias. He had to defend himself but he didn't want to hurt his old friend. Left with no choice, he drew his sword and prepared to try and escape and outrun the machine.
Larry and Ian, Mobian Badlands
"D-d-defend myself? But...but… I can't fight! I don't… I can't… it's just…" Larry was distraught with what Ian said. He always hated violence but after the incident at the lake, maybe self defense wouldn't be a bad thing to know.
"I was really hoping things would go back to normal. Like when it was peaceful again. Mom and Dad would walk through the door and we would be happy again. I know Josh wants that too but he seems like he was actually prepared in a way for something like this to happen. Was he really just prepared to protect me? He's never scared, he's always brave, he's so strong. Maybe… maybe I want to be that strong someday too!"
Finding a bit of resolve, he grabs the sword. But uh… he has a hard time lifting it. He tries getting it up to rest it on his shoulder but it tips over every time he gets close. Poor guy hadn't lifted many things before so he never really built any arm strength.
"Jeez Mr. St. John, why'd you give me the heaviest branch off the tree?" He strained to say as he hefted the practice sword.
“Heh, my boy was swinging that sword since he was 6 years old!” Replied Ian.
“6?! What did you feed him growing up?!” Larry replied in disbelief.
“A balanced meal! And he wasn’t soft like some people!” Retorted Ian.
“What’s that supposed to mean?!” Questioned Larry as he turned to face Ian with the sword.
“Anyways, start by finding the balanced center-point of the hilt. Once you find that, take your other hand and support your lead hand just below it on the hilt. This should help you lift the blade. Now, how I trained and used it is purely one-handed. You’re not going to be able to do that yet so for now, build up your strength then work your way up from there. Eventually you will be strong enough to find your own style.” Ian instructed Larry.
“Okay Mr. St. John, I’ll try!” Confidently remarked Larry as he tried once more to lift the sword, this time with his guidance. He manages to lift the sword up and in a better position where he can keep it up.
“Hey I did it! Thanks Mr. St. John!”
“Very good, now you must find your resolve and call upon it to guide the blade if you intend to protect anything! Remember resolve is measured by results so do not neglect your training. Now keep at it Larry, I’ll be back shortly.” He leaves Larry with some words of wisdom before heading further inside.
Sally Acorn, Mobotropolis
"I still can't believe he wants me to leave… we prepared for this day to come but… something about this Robotnik has Daddy freaking out. He hides it well but I can tell." Sally thought to herself as she was being escorted out of the palace. "I know it's what we've planned but it just doesn't feel right..."
