Re: How have you changed since joining this server?

In case the mods decide to let this thread stay open: For me, the biggest changes would be going blind and completing my Bachelor's in Computer Science. Not sure my interests have really changed that much. My music collection remains a rather eclectic mix of genres, time periods, and country of orig...

Re: Anyone here like Sonic X?

I remember there being a bunch of recastings for the games English dubs around 2010 that was about as big as the shift from the Adventure/Heroes Cast to the Sonic X cast, but I wasn't sure if there had been any changes since. And admittedly, I haven't played any console game post-heroes, and Colors ...

I wasn't aware the archives even went back that far, but I'd argue a good rule of thumb, not only on this forum, but the internet in general is not to bump anything older than a month or that has dropped off the bottom of the first page, which ever gives the older cut-off. Of course, the local forum...

While Music is usually one of 4Kids' strong points(I actually Prefer Pokemon Johto and Kirby: Right Back at Ya to the corresponding Japanese openings, they gave Yu-Gi-Oh quite possibly the most epic instrumental opening ever, and their dub opening for Shaman King is on par with Oversoul) , I'd say G...

Re: A Possible Sonic Adventure Remake/Re-release

^Yeah, this day and age, there's no real reason not to target both major Consoles, all three major PC OSes, and whatever Nintendo is doing. Hell, aside from the fact proper gaming controls are an afterthought at best with most mobile devices, a Gamecube collection could probably run well on all thre...

I'm mostly ambivalent to the censorship necessary to meet the requirements of US broadcast standards, and considering Station Square is already supposed to be located in a US analog, 4Kids usual xenophobia doesn't bother me as much here as in their dubs that try to take shows set in Japan or a Japan...

Personally, I'd rather have Tails, Amy, or Blaze. Tails because there aren't that many sidekick characters in the roster, and Amy or Blaze because their aren't that many females in the roster. Plus, while Shadow or Silver could have some unique moves, they'd probably just make either a Sonic clone/e...

Re: Chao Research being worked on

SA1DC probably is the game where compiled information on Chao is most spotty. That said, it seems a bit shortsighted to treat SADX and SA2B Monolithically. I've only played the Gamecube versions and a bit of SADXPC04, but even among what is well known, it is already known that there are significant ...

Re: "To catch a shadow"- The Ultimate Life Form conspiracy

^I thought Sega's other franchises were generally considered to have competent Story telling and that it's only Sonic where they tend to fall flat on their face whenever they try for epic tales.

That said, this continues to be a very compelling interpretation.

Re: Least favorite Sonic games?

Of the Sonic games I've played, I'd have to give my top three least favorite slots to Drift, Drift 2, and Labyrinth. Some of them are Nintendo Hard, but the rest of the GG Sonic Catalog are at least enjoyable.

That said, I'm curious as to why Tails' Adventures would get a mention in this thread.
