Possibly but didn't both Shadow and Lyric appear in the comics? Which kinds of puts things at odds with the 'game-exclusive' rule that you mentioned? I don't keep up with the show too much but I know I have seen this around before the latest episodes. If this is one of those "Different time, Different place" stories before the Boom!verse comic was established then my mistake. I admit I don't keep up with the Boom!verse as well as I do the main series though I do remember this being similar to the situation of Shadow being controlled from Shattered Crystal.
True but a slight difference there would be that some people wouldn't be expecting much from Perci anyway. Given how much she is played down in the Boom!Verse. At the very least she would have been able to fight as a background character as opposed to cowering in the background and making quips about being useless. Haha
What about characters like Perci? She made an appearance both in the game and the TV show. That, and her design is a little bit more memorable than Fastidious Beaver. She'd seem more interesting than the other characters they threw in with Sticks.
It would certainly be interesting if Flynn did end up writing the plot for one of the games in the future. Doesn't mean it would be good, since Video Games and comics are two very different mediums, but interesting for sure. I hadn't really cared much for the plot of a Sonic game since Unleashed, with a slight exception with Lost World, since while it wasn't the deepest of plots (Kinda mediocre actually) the interaction between sonic, Tails, and Eggman in that game was pretty entertaining.
Sticks had a few good lines across the span of the comics but her 'sidekicks' were utterly useless. Maybe it's because I don't really follow Boom but I found the two of them to be boring and a waste of space. If they were going to bring other characters from the Boom!verse (aside from Boom!Sonic or the other members of the main cast in order to avoid confusion from character doubles) then they really should have had Sticks bring along someone else. Sticks, speaking of, was enjoyable to some extent though I felt the comics focused on her more than what they should have. Aside from the wall-breaking humor she didn't really represent the Boom!verse all that well.
Sadly even if SEGA picks themselves off the ground for this game and it does turn out good, it's likely to sell poorly simply because it's Sonic Boom. With the reputation the franchise has after Rise of Lyric most people probably won't want to give this game so much as a chance. The trailer for this game didn't exactly fill me with confidence either...Just left me wondering why this game is even going to exist.
Agreed. Additionally the main comics already have their form of "comedic forth wall breaking character" in Bean the Duck, who I actually find much more enjoyable actually. It's probably how he's written and comes off as a little less hyperactive than Sticks, though he's by no means passive. That said, I would love to see a meeting between Sticks and Bean (more as a brief off panel or something of that nature) where maybe he calls her a try hard or they complain that the other is trying to rip off or copy their gig.
I will admit though that I did get a small giggle from her interaction with Main verse Sonic and Knuckles in that one issue.
Funny comic moments? Without a doubt Bean's Logic in the battle between Team Hooligan and the Chaotix and how everyone just stops for a moment, thinks it through and then is immediately ashamed. That was just golden.
To be honest, I kinda prefer them rectoning Charmy's age after the genesis wave compared to how the writers caused Charmy to lose some of his sanity to "amend" the fact they had made him much older than he was supposed to be. Even Flyn admitted he wished he hadn't gone about it the way he had.
