    Extra characters are always a great idea in a game, but I think the reason might be that the designers might not have designed it right.
    For example, they might plan extra characters but get back to it later and instead work on level design. When they finish level design and work on the extra characters, they find out that there might be all kinds of glitches or the level design with the new characters are too easy or too hard, so they must either tweak the levels to be right for all characters, or they must create completely new levels or alternate versions of an existing level. The latter option would obviously take up too much time, but the first option may make the game mediocre. So the only real solution is to account for the new characters early into the game design, or alternatively make the characters only minor changes from each other, the first of which was done in the Sonic Adventure Series very well.
    Since the Hedgehog Engine doesn't really account for other characters (Tails in a 3D Sonic Unleashed stage? Humbug! Knuckles as Werehog Sonic would work, but just because they planned in the Werehog BEFOREHAND), we should assume that any game using it will feature only one character.

    Your English is great!
    Excluding your note saying that your English isn't that great. It's supposed to be '..my english skills AREN'T so awesome. Kinda ironic that your english was great until you said it wasn't.
    Anyway, how about this sad story. I got a IDE to USB adapter so I can use my CD drive with it, but the wire to the cable blocks the port for power on the CD drive. Luckily it works on hard drives both SATA and IDE, but still, pretty sad huh?

    Freedom Planet



    It's a fan game, developed on Sonic Worlds engine by Strife.
    The main feature of the project is that it's based on Sonic game mechanics and character style, but the universe where the game takes place and the characters are created by the author. The main character is a fan-character of DA user Ziyo Ling, Sash Lilac (she even has a fan group at deviantART).
    5 zones are planned in the game; one of them is already finished.



    Dragon Valley - Finished
    Relic Maze
    Robot Playground
    Battle Glacier
    Thermal Base

    Also the author plans adventure fields and story cutscenes.

    Some artwork from the author:
    Sash Lilac - the main character
    Spade the Cavy - the rival of the main character. Uses a deck of cards as a weapon.
    Dr. Brevon (concept) - main antagonist
    One of the bosses
    Three more characters - two good guys and one evil girl

    I can't draw Sonic characters if my life depended on it.
    I can, however, try to draw some Eggman robots!
    I think it's because I'm bad at curves... I can only draw straight lines with accuracy.
    let me find my Eggman robot drawing... In the meantime, here's a hack I did of E101 MKII!

    I hope the rumor will be proven false, though, remembering past, it's a very desperate hope. Really, SEGA, why recolor Sonic? Aren't other characters enough? I'm getting tired of playing only Sonic(s) or forms of him. Sonic Adventure was a nice example of various gameplay, except, maybe, fishing. Or even Sonic 3 & Knuckles - having Tails/Knuckles greatly extended the game. Added Tails in Sonic CD port is a good sign.

    As for the name, if it's true, Sonic Dimensions can be just a working title, like Sonic Anniversary, later renamed to Sonic Generations.

    The name is kind of clever... Sonic Generations was time, Sonic Colors was color, and so Dimensions is space... I would have never thought to use Colors, as only time and space are obvious (they tried time and space with Pokemon's Fourth generation, didn't they?). Kudos to SEGA for coming up with an interesting idea.

    Anyone play Shmups?
    I enjoy action platformers like Sonic (and Megaman), but when I feel like playing something a bit more challenging, I turn to Shoot 'Em Ups, or Shmups. Personally, I like all shmups, but right now I'm into Touhou (My whole channel has Touhou stuff due to lack of good stuff to upoload). Maybe I like shhmups because it makes me feel like I'm skilled. Anyone else played this genre before?

    Here's my brother's run. It's a bit quiet, so turn up the volume if you want to hear the beautiful Touhou music.

    New Rumoured Game, Sonic Dimensions?
    Recently rumours have surfaced on the news site TSSZ of the next Sonic the Hedgehog game to take place after Sonic Generations, titled Sonic Dimensions, which is said to be a project for the upcoming Nintendo Wii U. Interesting things to note about this rumour is the mention of there actually being staff from Nintendo assisting the team who worked on Sonic Colours. Below is the Rumour.



    The original link to this rumour is Here.

    So until we receive official confirmation of this game, what are people's thoughts and opinions on the matter? Personally I'm skeptical of this, as Generations has barely just finished development and started being released so its perhaps too soon to begin announcing anything like this, though at the same time the premise of the game somewhat interests me simply for the potential it holds both gameplay-wise and story-wise (as it reminds me of the other recently-released Nintendo game, Kirby Mass Attack, which looks to be a fun title).

    That doesn't look half bad Vladik. :)

    Anyway as for me, I prefer to stick to plain little sketches and doodles, mainly because I find that to be more fun (and also because I don't currently have any idea on how best to colour any of my pictures). I typically tend to sketch characters from either Sonic, Mario or Kirby, though since the topic only calls for Sonic images I'll just post a little batch of Sonic sketches I did a while ago as practice. :P

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4
    So last year, Sega made a somewhat unexpected move in the franchise by trying to return the gameplay of the much beloved games of ye olde time~ (much like Nintendo and Capcom had done previously with New Super Mario Bros. and Mega Man 9, to great commercial and critical success). Thus began Project Needlemouse, as it was known in the beginning, which promised to return to the roots of the series as had been established back in the 90's games, meaning back to the simple plots with Eggman as the main and sole villain, the 2D gameplay without any of the cluttering game styles that plagued the 3D games, the colourful environments that had been associated with the series, and a focus on Sonic as the only playable character, dropping the riff-raff characters such as Shadow, Big etc.

    It should also be interesting thing to note about Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is that it is also the first game in the series to be released entirely in digital form instead of in retail, and is also the first time that Sega have ever made an episodic Sonic the Hedgehog game, meaning that the game is still an ongoing project with only the first episode having seen release so far (with a currently unspecified number of episodes to follow). This means there is potential in the future for both the gameplay and the story to go in different directions...

    And with that, I ask people to share their opinions on Sonic 4 Episode 1 in it's current state, and perhaps share any hopes or expectations for the coming episodes.

    Sonic X




    Sonic X is the only Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon that isn't actually a cartoon. The anime features three seasons: the first one is about the Chaos Emeralds hunting and generic fighting with Dr. Eggman, and the second is based off Adventure Series and Sonic Battle. The third season, which wasn't made under SEGA control, is all about space travelling, visiting other planets and searching for the Chaos Emeralds which were lost again during the Super Sonic's fight with some mysterious metallic monster.
    The thing that is special about this anime is that there are people. The one of the main characters there is Chris Thorndyke, a boy who made friends with Sonic and others in the beginning of first season and was sharing all the adventures with them till the end of the third season.

    What did you like in this anime? What disappointed you? Is it good or bad they didn't make the fourth season? What do you think? Share your opinion here.

    Sonic Generations



    Sonic Generations is a game for the 20th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog, which features both modern and classic versions of characters from the Sega Mega Drive games. The plot doesn't seem to be very complicated: there's some creepy time eating monster who mixed the time up and made both of the hedgehogs (the classic and the modern) meet, and now they have to figure out how to put an end to it while running through the various zones – from the very Green Hill till the Sonic Colors' Planet Wisp.
    The game comes in two versions – the one for modern consoles and PC (yeah, finally) and the other for 3DS, which features different levels and maybe something else.

    So, what do you expect from this one? Will it put an end to the war between retro- and modern fans? What will the fans of Adventure series say? Discuss!

    I think there are people who like to draw stuff and probably will have something to show. So, here is the special place to share any of your Sonic-related drawings.

    I'll start:

    See something familiar? Yes, I'm only a bit good in copying things with some self-additions. Drawing isn't really my cup of tea unfortunately.
