Episode 2 is at least a decent 2D platformer, but it doesn't really capture the spirit of classic Sonic any better.

I honestly don't know how people have problem with S4:E1, it's easy to the point of being boring

Like, even younger me was able to beat it in a few days and managed to get Super Sonic because there's a retry option for Special Zones

Like, it's not good but aside of maybe the final boss, hard is not what comes to mind with it

Well that post seemed to be entirely focused on the light puzzle in act 2 of Lost Labyrinth Zone...

It's almost a decade since Sonic 4, so I barely remember anything from it, which is probably for the best.

Nothing before that puzzle was hard. Not even that puzzle is hard in theory. It's just pure bullshit.

Also, it has the worst of the recurring special stages. It doesn't help that something about the way it controls feels weird.

Sonic 4 is the awkward sibling no one talks about. Which at least means people aren't still holding it over the series head several years after its release. Which is probably the best thing can happen to it

So Sonic Boom cancel or something? I haven't heard of anything about it for awhile now. Did they finally ended the show?

Sonic 1's special stages aren't recurring...

They took the good one and just made them worse.

If there's something I can appreciate Sonic 4 (aside from having some cool ideas) is that it has a retry option for Special Zones

I wouldn't have gotten Super Sonic otherwise

@agent-trunks Apparently Roger Craig smith met with one of the Boom writers, so maaaaaaybe there will be another season? I think there was also a long gap between seasons 1 and 2 so it might be back for a third. I kind of hope there is, I've grown fond of those iterations of the characters.

It's weird to me that Boom was allowed to veer off course as much as it did while Ian Flynn allegedly has Sega breathing down his neck over the comic when both of these adaptations work best when allowed to do their own thing.

[up]Now that you mention it, it does seem weird. I think maybe it's because Sega realizes that the comics have a much bigger legacy that reflects more on the games and franchise as a whole, while Boom was always meant to be something new and different. The current comics might not be canon, but they're a look at what could be canon to some extent. The characters in the comics aren't meant to be alternate reality versions the same way that Boom is meant to be, so they need to act closer to how Sega wants them too.

I suspect once the Boom brand got poisoned by Rise of Lyric, corporate attention to it dropped considerably. Contractual obligations and the dim positive reviews for Shattered Crystal probably compelled them to make Fire and Ice, but with the name in the toilet for a decent portion of the public and CN clearly doing the show no favors via scheduling, Sega likely considered it low priority after that.

Moreover with the comics reboot via IDW and Mania slowly but surely emerging as the new sub-brand that Sega's paying attention to, Boom has basically just been allowed to slowly fade away.

On the other hand, I don't recall anyone who worked on any of the tv shows stealing characters from Sega and I don't recall any of the showrunners being incompetent enough to let them get away with it.

It would be neat if Tangle and Whisper got to be in the games, but that's probably never going to happen. Still, I'm betting Flynn would be down for it, and their abilities seem like they could make the jump to the games well enough. Tangle's got basically the Avatar's grappling hook and Whisper has the wispons. They wouldn't even have to be playable.

Don't want to get into too many details due to the ickiness, but Rooster Teeth and now Funimation have terminated their ties with Vic Mignogna. (I'll just say he was being a super-creep far too many times and leave it there.)

I bring him up because he's the official voice of E-123 Omega. Since everyone's rightfully throwing Vic under the bus, it won't be long until Sega joins in on the bus throwing.

With Vic inevitably out, who do you guys think will voice Omega from here on out?

You could probably do some great with a Synthetic Voice Actor and Melodyne.

All right, what did Vic do? If recent trends are of any indication, I can probably guess, but I'd like to be sure.

[up] You know how some people have commented how Vic was creepy sometimes? Basically that, but way way way way WAY worse. Jamie Marchi recently shared a particularly creepy encounter with the guy.

Nothing outright confirmed, but he's been accused by multiple people, including other VA's he has worked with, of sexual misconduct. Funimation apparently did their own investigation and decided it was better to let him go.

So basically, he's been blacklisted more or less.

Good riddance, Vic.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they brought back Jon St. John, Omega's original VA, since he voiced him as recently as the 2016 Mario & Sonic game, long after the last major cast turnover.

Omega's voice is so heavily synthesized that it's impossible to tell who's voicing him anyway, so it's always been one of the more baffling recasting decisions.
