I'm probably one of the real hard core sonic fans. I have been playing the game since it's release back in 92 on the Sega Genesis Game Consol. I've played every Sonic game and found that they are infact intact with their roots in each and every game. 'Fans' need to learn the actual roots.

On the internet, EVERYONE IS FURRY.
Also troll.
Also trekkie. You see, all the nerd classes merge into one superclass that out 34's and out competes everything
Thus the internet takes over the world and it is revealed that /b/ WAS SKYNET ALL ALONG.

[url=#user_comment_36900]@blarg[/url] That is just a rumor. It is said that Tails was also supposed to be a tanuki(and Sonic could've been an armadillo). But he isn't. He is a fox and he is male. Just because it could've been that way doesn't mean it is correct.

[cont]Therefore, it doesn't matter what SEGA does, it will never be good enough for them.

What the Sonic fancrowd want is to keep their nostalgic illusion that the old Sonic games were perfect and nothing will ever be nearly as good.
Alex

Sega have been releasing some good Sonic games every now and then, but the Sonic fancrowd apparently can't see it.

They want games like the old ones, complaining of any deviation, but they don't want more of the same. They requests contradict each other, they nitpick and they are never satisfied.

Not sure about the others, but for me it was the "Yay for stereotyping" / "Furry bashing is fun [/sarcasm] WTF JO?" style posts that had me going. Because I feel the best way to shut "OMG FURSECUTION" up is to show how much worse it could be whilst being just as / more truthful.

Also, again, Vulpis does a very nice job of showing the fandom as it WANTS to be seen. Ask yourself this: If the sex obsessed is the minority, why should some 15-20% of Fur Affinity's Admissions be Mature / Adult-tagged, with those also getting over half the sum page views of FA? TROLL LIES?!

Also furry here, lol'd hard. Though Tails would be male. The amount of Rule 34 for Tails is verging on obsessive.

I've already linked to the fact that Jo's "unfair / lame bashing strip" could have been made HORRIBLY more bad for the fandom, but apparently putting a tame shipping that many Furs wouldn't mind is so much worse than Futa Amy or Gay non-Kemonomimi Sonic Art.

Oh yay, another lame bashing strip. I do wonder--why is someone in what's pretty obviously either a Conker or Mr Nutsy outfit even caring about Sonic, anyway?

It isn't hard to make Sonic fans happy. In fact, they're so loyal they'll buy any old crap that SEGA gives a "Sonic" theme. So that's just what they've done. Taken a stupid gimmick, put Sonic in it, give enough screenshots to give the fans hope, then disappoint them.

Bah, f*ck the "True" fans; look at the Mario Series, they've could have been split by the 2D vs. 3D Mario games but have they? No! The problem with the Sonic Series is that, and this is counter productive, it's way to fast. In the Mario Games it feels much longer and gives more content.

The same urban legend went around about Knuckles as he was pink, which isn't a feminine colour in Japan like it is elsewhere, so sorry to all those Furries but I'm afraid Miles and Knuckles are both guys.
Boy Wonder
over 11 years ago
Yamaguchi ended up with a compromise. He sneaked the name "Miles" in as his legal name; "Tails" would be his nickname, ending up with the full name of Miles "Tails" Prower which is a pun of the phrase "miles per hour".
Boy Wonder
over 11 years ago
Yasushi Yamaguchi, originally the main artist for Sonic Team, designed Tails for an internal competition for a sidekick for Sonic. The character was meant to hold a "deep admiration for Sonic." His entry won, but Sonic Team decided to change his character's name from 'Miles' to 'Tails'.

TheBaron87
over 11 years ago
In Sonic 4's case, the homing attack makes the enemies too easy, and the game is STILL slower than Sonic 2, 3, and +K. They've got some aspects of the level design down, but Sonic himself still seems to control like his older (more recent) self.
Bek359
over 11 years ago
I think the reason that people are whining about Sonic 4 is because it didn't just go back to the series' roots,; it's a carbon copy of Sonic 1, but in HD. To paraphrase Spoony, when people played Sonic 18 years ago, they probably thought that they wouldn't be playing the same game 20 yrs later.
TheBaron87
over 11 years ago
The problem is when these developers try to go back to their roots, they're NEVER comfortable with going all the way back. They always have to drag something from the "new world" back with them that the fans didn't ask for, or leave out the part that makes us miss the old games to begin with.

Worth noting that originally, Tails WAS female. "He" was made male for the American release of the game because...the main character having a female sidekick was weird, I guess? And like many other Americanizations, it stuck.
