(Check back on Sunday the 31st for a Halloween comic ~Virus)
And Virus and Rogue return. And you know we’re gonna have to give Rogue and Virus their own storyline because of all the East and Lothar time we’ve had. *East say’s he’ll do it*. Well, even better.
You know, this comic probably has my favourite Lothar line in it.
Thank you all.
Before I get on with my normal arseholish news-post, I would just like to say, HAPPY 1ST ANNIVERSARY RAQUEL!
Anyway, while sitting on the toilet, having a shite and playing Sonic Advance 3 on my GBA SP I came to a realisation.
I do not like Sonic anymore. Not one fucking bit.
Let me explain, my love of Sonic grows from the Megadrive. The games then were beautiful pieces of art that demanded you blast through the levels at stupid speed. And have as much fun as possible while doing it. So I’m playing Sonic Advance 3 and wondering why it felt there was something missing.
It was fun. Sonic Advance 3 is NO FUN to play, at all. And its not just Advance 3, its all the advances and every game since pretty much Sonic 3D. And let’s face it, Sonic Heroes was just down right PAINFUL to play. I look at Sonic Adventure…it was crap, the only thing good about it was the Sonic Levels and even they were done in some stupid ways. The pinball levels were pointless the snowboarding bit while looking cool had rather odd controls and lacked any thing fun. And wandering around in-between levels was just plain fucking STUPID. FISHING? IN A SONIC GAME WHAT THE HELL? THE FIND THE EMERALD LEVELS? SONIC IS ABOUT SPEED, NOT PLAYING A RETARDED VERSION OF HIDE AND SEEK. The Amy levels were just down right boring. Generic platform game trash.
Sonic Adventure 2. A big improvement on the Sonic levels. But everything else was FUCKING AWFUL. And just rehashes of the stuff I didn’t like in Sonic Adventure 1. The Robotnik/Tails levels were just fucking Gamma redone and the Knuckles/BatFuck levels, WHY BRING BACK THE SECOND STUPIDEST IDEA FROM SONIC ADVENTURE. And Shadow, why do people like Shadow, he’s Sonic with angst.
Sonic Battle, WHY THE FUCK DID I BUY THAT IDIOTIC FUCKED UP SMASH BROTHERS WANNABE, ITS NOT EVEN FUN, ITS FUCKING ANNOYING WHEN YOU GET YOUR HEAD KICKED IN BY ROUGE THE 42ND FUCKING TIME.
And now I look at Sonic Heroes, there was only ONE good level in that game, and to finish the game you had to fucking play every level 4 times with 4 different teams, the only difference between them being MORE idiotic redundant characters. Don’t give me that “But in Chaotix you had to find stuff” THAT WAS THE WORST FUCKING PART!
The only thing I now like about the Sonic games is Knuckles design, and even then I changed it to make it look better. I know people look at Lothar and say “Ooh, Knuckles, SONIC!” BUT quite frankly I have HAD IT with the Sonic series. It’s dead to me now.
I look at the Halo series, I look at Bungie, and pray the same over merchandising, over extension and over diversifying of genres does not happen to Halo. And I am filled with Hope. Microsoft may own Bungie, but Microsoft let them do their own thing. Microsoft knows that Bungie does its best work by itself. I am filled with hope that Bungie will not make fucking stupid decisions and drive a fucking brilliant story driven sci-fi epic FPS into the fucking ground like Sega did with their most famous and popular product.
10 Days left until Halo 2. Days left to new Sonic, I don’t give a fucking shit.
And before anyone ask’s, EN is not going anywhere. And Lothar is not changing, like I stated I liked the design for the Echidna’s. Only time Lothar will ever change if say Sega either sues us or somebody offers us a job doing the comic but I need to change his design so we can do so without getting sued. *BIG HINT FOR KEENSPOT!*
