Somewhat of a rant.
So this has bothered me ever since I played the game, and it is this: you know the part where Shadow is on top of the bridge and Robotnik sees the news station report on how he robbed the bank and got the Chaos Emerald in Sonic Adventure 2? Well, the newscaster says it was Sonic who did it.
These people know that Sonic is blue, right? And that this new hedgehog is black and red?
So, what? Did Sonic somehow gave himself an emo makeover and decided to rob banks? Or is everyone in Station Square colorblind?
I really think it's the latter.
To the people that constantly whine about the Sonic games not being the way they "used to": grow the fuck up.
Those days are over.
They have been over for over a decade.
Stop whining and moaning about how the Sonic games aren't what you grew up with.
Those days are done. If you want to feel that good old nostalgic feeling that you felt many days ago, then go and play the genesis games.
Your childhood is over, and you're old now.
Deal with it.
To the reviewers that said Sonic Unleashed was "juvenile" and "childish;"
Yeah, go to hell.
How exactly is Sonic anymore childish than Mario? Oh wait, it isn't. Because it's a goddamn kids game. So shut the fuck up.
I have no problem what so ever that you hate Silver. You're free to like what you like and hate what you hate. But; could you perhaps think of a better reason to hate Silver other than "he's ugly?"
This is my first post here, but some of you may recognize me from the defunct bad_sonic_fics
community. I'd like to rant about something that's been on my mind for awhile.
I wish these hordes of ficcers who hate specific Sonic characters would stop writing character death fiction—simply killing off characters they hate clearly for personal reasons without giving thought to the personalities set out by the respective canon (Sega, Archie et al.
). It's just red meat for all the other haters out there—a quick jerk-off for those who want their anti-Sally or anti-Shadow or anti-Elise or anti-whatever fix without having a very good, in-character reason for doing so.
Now, I know just about everyone has at least one character they can't stand. That's normal: not everyone is expected to like every character that is created, and they are perfectly within their rights to make such opinions known. I certainly do not take offense to the fact that there are people who hate some of my personal favorites, such as Sally and even Vector, and I will respect those opinions, so long as mine are respected in return.
Also, character death fics can work if done properly. Just before the bad_sonic_fics
community shut down, one of the members posted a terrific fanfic written by Radman, "Set Me Free,"
where Shadow sacrifices himself in order to kill off Mephiles, who had been possessing him. Fics such as these must be really wonderous—it must make Ian Flynn piss himself. Otherwise, there's no reason for it to exist.
In other words: if you are a fanfiction author and you hate a character with a passion, at least write her in-character. Better still: there are well over one hundred primary and secondary characters in the Sega, SatAM, Archie, Fleetway, "Adventures of...", "Sonic Underground" and "Sonic X" universes. Focus your attention on one or two of those, why don't you, instead of littering the Pit with death for death's sake.

Okay, about time I get this off my chest. I'm going back to ranting like I normally do, because really, this is starting to piss me off.
I am sick and fucking tired of "Sonic Truth or Dare Fics LOLERZ!!111" You know, I decided to look in fanfiction.net while my batteries were running dry just for the hell of it, and guess what was 40% of the shit I see? THIS SHIT. I actually got really pissed off and sent this one guy this dare: END THE FUCKING STORY AND COME UP WITH SOMETHING ORIGINAL. So many people are doing this shit. I know, it's bound to happen, because Sonictards are not creative. At all. Not to mention that a lot of these actually still get reviews and no one has the right mind to think, "Hmm. If I give this guy a review, not only am I supporting terrorism, but I'm supporting people being uncreative and lazy to come up with their own ideas!" Yeah I know, I'm talking about fanfiction, which takes a bunch of characters you didn't made into a story, but it still doesn't mean you should just think, "Hmm, I know! I'll just come up with an idea someone already came up with! Hee hee!"
And then, to the actual stories. None of them are funny or written well. Most of them are in script format.
If I see one more of these, I'm going to report on all of them that have script format or whatever and they'll be taken down. And then pixies will dance all over the Sonic section of FF.Net, as I will be what people would call a Sonic crusader and fight for things like originality and non-shitty and lazy writing. Unfortunately, I would be on the Internet all the time like my sister.
And also, stop making Sonic into an asshole to Amy or whatever. Sure, he gets annoyed with her sometimes, but will he call her things like a cunt or something? Hell no.
Sorry, just had to get that out, and that's what this community is for.
Hi kids! Long time no see! Time to bitch about something Sonic-related, although my rants are stupid.
So, heard about the whole SEGA All-Stars game featuring cars yet? People are complaining that Sonic is in a car, and that's kind of dumb, because the competiton has to involve cars and Sonic wants to play fairly...I guess. And his feet occasionally get tired. What people should really be complaining about why a monkey is driving? You know, that Mexican monkey?
And...umm...here's my next rant. I would provide this with funny images, but maybe later.
Icons. Now, icons are all well and good. Some of them are pretty. Some of them are funny. Some of them are just annoying and get on my nerves for some reason. Here's the kind of icons I'm talking about:
Okay, maybe there's only one icon maker that breaks all these rules, but for the sake of anonymity, I'm not going to reveal his or her or its name.
Now, first off, icons with song lyrics. This is fine and all that, but...I don't know. Some of them are weird. I would show you an example of this icon, but I can't right now, but basically it's some minor character that possibly only appeared in one episode of SatAM, with a sample of a song lyric in it. I don't know, I don't understand it at all. Why is this character important? Why does he have an icon? Does anyone even care about this character? Does the song lyric even fit the icon? I don't know, some people just make icons because they're bored and they decided to make one of some character that only appeared in one episode. Unless that character said something really funny, which I highly doubt, then maybe I can understand, but I don't.
Then, icons to things that most sane people will not get. I looked at this one icon of Shadow, and apparently there is a joke that originally appeared in some Sonic thing that I never seen, or would probably never want to see. The icon really isn't that funny, and I bet if I saw that thing, it probably still won't be funny. Another thing that annoys me is icons that are inside jokes. "LOL MAH FRENDS ND AH MAD THIZ ND WE TOTAL LY GIT DA JOK LOLZ" Well, we don't get it, and that is probably why no one wants your icon.
Then, finally, the final thing on my list that annoys me when it comes to Sonic icons, is icons that the creator made song lyrics to simply because "that song was on at the time". It's kind of like if I saw a pretty dog outside while I was making a Sonic icon, I insert the dog in it, simply because it was in my mind at the time. I don't know, that's just how I feel.
Yeah, no cussing, because I'm simply annoyed by this, not REALLY IRATE or anything. In fact, Sonic stuff no longer gives me high blood pressure or anything like that anymore. Which is good and all, because I guess that means I'm finding things that are more important in life.
