Ben Schwartz teases Colleen O'Shaughnessey's & Idris Elba's "awesome" performance



Quote
"We've got Colleen O'Shaughnessey, who was from the video game and played Tails, she plays Tails, Idris Elba's Knuckles, they're both awesome in it and they look awesome. Jim Carrey is incredible in it," he continued.
He then added: "Incredible guest stars. Natasha Rothwell, who's a powerhouse of a comedian, Adam Pally, who worked with (The Afterparty co-star) Sam (Richardson) and who's worked with me before, is in it and incredibly funny in it."

Sonic's Quills Are Staying Short In Frontiers, Some Fans Outraged



Quote
Sonic communities on both Twitter and Reddit have been locked in the heated debate for the past two days, with both sides eager for the other one to just stop.
One side wants to see a return of the Generations model, with its long quills and dark blue fur.
The others are fine with sticking to the Forces look, feeling that the naysayers are letting their feelings about the 2017 release cloud their judgement.

Most of Ponychans that I know also like Sonic, dunno why. Were there any similarities?
Yes. At least similarities I saw.
May be that's why we never got SA2-like game anymore, they deemed it as failure since Sonic '06 failed.
Hopefully Sonic Frontiers would change that.
It's toxic way of thinking.
Sonic Team: Let's make another Sonic game with gameplay like from the Dreamcast-era.
Sega: Will you guys hurry up? It's nearing the holidays and we got to release it NOW!
Sonic Team: But the games not properly balanced and riddled with bugs, we're just not ready!
*Sega releases the game anyway*
Sega: Well the game was a hated mess. I guess fans didn't like the Dreamcast-era gameplay after all.
Sonic Team: Or they just didn't like the game.
Sega: Well regardless, let's move onto boosting to make up for how slow Sonic was and never look back.

They don't look the same to me given I can tell the Sonic on the right has shorter quills and I kinda prefer it over the Sonic on the right. But yeah, I don't see the outrage given it's not that different and it's still Sonic.

Higher ups tend to miss the details on how or why, just care about results.

I don't mind the difference too..
Back then the quills are even longer, but it never bothered me.
Sonic is Sonic.

And yah, the length of Sonic's quills varied over the games and comics.

That squills length reminded me of Super Saiyan 3 Goku

Goes to show it's inconsistant.

Changes mostly are good, but inconsistant is a major turn off.

The Sonic Lost World PC Mod Has Now Recreated The Legend Of Zelda DLC

That same creator, known as ĐeäTh on their YouTube channel, has now almost finished a mod to complete the PC version with The Legend of Zelda DLC.
The mod of this DLC is set to arrive in mid-February with the developer having painstakingly recreated the stage; it looks like a rather impressive effort.

I honestly thought this DLC complimented the Lost World gameplay better than the main game did. I hope someone makes an extended version of this DLC, or better yet their own mod DLC. I'd probably buy Sonic Lost World for PC if there was more story-driven campaigns for it.

Extended version would take a lot of works, but Sonic mod community tend to surprise me so it's still possible to happen.

Yeah. As much as I don't like Sonic Lost World, I will admit nerfing Sonic's speed in exchange for parkkour skills does make him good for exploration over travel. I imagine if there ever was a Mario and SOnic crossover game then Sonic's Lost World gameplay would compliment Mario's gameplay.

Not that I want a Sonic and Mario crossover game outside the Olympics.

Actually... I do want Sonic Shuffle x Mario Party Cossover...

Sonic the Hedgehog's IDW Series Is Trying To Outdo Archie's Best Arc





Quote
In Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog discontinued series, endgame refers to the Operation: EndGame four-issue arc where the traitor Drago the Wolf serves as Sonic's imposter and frames him for killing Princess Sally.
Of course, Surge obviously can't frame IDW's Sonic for murder since she looks nothing like him and is a tenrec, not a hedgehog.
But Dr. Starline does plan on using these imposters against Dr. Eggman much like how Archie's Sonic eventually straight-up murders Dr. Robotnik in Operation: EndGame.
