It's fascinating watching a franchise try to recover from a decade of terrible decisions and actually do pretty well.


I'm so glad I forgot completely about this character when I got a Playstation.

Yeah, it's been really interesting to see how Sega's managed to salvage things. The Sonic series has become a really interesting look into many aspects of game design due to the large range of successes, failures, and "so close but not quite there"s, all of which are essentially variations on the same sort of gameplay. And now that the games are pretty good again we can really dig into the meat of what made them good games and what made them so bad for so long.

Makes more sense than a Knuckles/Rouge rivalry, anyway.

I believe the Sonic & Knuckles manual mentioned that Knuckles gets flustered around the ladies? I'm pretty sure Rouge was basically invented because someone flipped through that book and wondered why they never showed off that personality trait of Knuckles.

Rouge's original name was actually "Nails the Bat" in early versions of Sonic Adventure 2, with more emphasis on how she could basically do everything Knuckles could do (instead of climbing walls with Knuckles, she climbed walls with...Nails!) but it was changed, likely because everyone thought the name "Nails" meant she HAD to be related to Tails somehow.

I don't really know much about Sonic, but isn't Knuckles' job as the last of his species or tribe or whatever to guard their emeralds, and Rouge's entire job is to steal emeralds? The rivalry makes perfect sense to me.

That Ponygiotis Vavetsikas guy is really making GBS threads up Lazerbot's Facebook page.

He's either trying to get a name drop / character of his choice / his own Mary sue into the comic, or he is just an Internet argument warrior. Either way he needs to shut the gently caress up and let lazorbot get on with his work in peace.

Looney Tunes are awesome. Anyone who doesn't enjoy Looney Tunes lacks a heart. gently caress all the newfangled reboots, though. (:corsair:)

I wish they still played reruns of the classic stuff on Cartoon Network. Kids these days don't appreciate a good anvil gag anymore. Except for lazerbot, lazerbot totally gets this poo poo.

They do play reruns of the classic stuff, like pretty much every day in the morning. The latest reboot show is actually pretty decent, too.

To be fair I think if anyone at WB suggested they make the Looney Tunes necromancers they'd probably be fired on the spot without two weeks notice.

I've seen a few episodes of the Looney Tunes Show, and I can vouch for this, even if it uses more sitcom-style humor than classic slapstick.

Change your custom title and put the link to that image in [img] tags. Now that it's hosted on SA servers, it'll show up in your custom title.

It'll cost you five dollars to do it.

I suggest putting an extra carriage return before the tag so there'll be a bit of spacing. Makes it look better/more genuine.

You could appeal to a mod*, but there's no guarantee there. Otherwise, yes you'd have to pay five more bux to fix it manually.

Dang, really? It looks fine in the preview. There's probably some HTML weirdness you have to put in to make that work. Sorry. :(

Some people did that for the 3rd Street Goons tag, so I know it's possible.

Yeah in my preview it looked like the carriage worked. Strange. gently caress it, I don't mind spending another $5 on a forum I've got literally thousands of hours of enjoyment from :)
