  1. In Topic: Sonic things you used to misremember

    Yesterday, 10:50 AM

    The Chaotix were only ever minor characters in the Classic series, so when they returned in Heroes Sonic Team had a lot of flexibility with them. Espio wasn't a ninja at all before, right? I really appreciate that aspect of his character now. Vector's personality was really hammed up in a good way. He got a tougher image with the gold chain and stockier physique. The bubblegum move, however bizarre, has never struck me as odd until now. It fits his image well. I love the Chaotix.

    Here's a case of something that I thought I mis-remembered but it eventually turned out that I was actually right all along. Back when I was a child, I couldn't get past Carnival Night (or Marble Garden if playing as Tails alone...) in S3K. One day at a party I watched someone else play through the game and get really far into it. I think they made to Lava Reef or Sandopolis. What I distinctly remember seeing when they got the seventh Chaos Emerald was the message "Sonic can now go to Hidden Palace". It would be years and years before I ever saw that message again, and I was convinced that I'd imagined it. Someone else on here brought it up some time ago and it turns out that this message is only displayed if you get the seventh Chaos Emerald after visiting Hidden Palace at the start of Mushroom Hill. It makes sense that I'd never seen it because whenever I got the Chaos Emeralds before I'd always managed it below reaching Mushroom Hill.

    When I was little I thought Tails was called Miles Prower and that Eggman's name is dr. Ivo Robotnik.

    Since that's true, I don't get the joke. People making the games from Sonic heroes onward should remember this once in a while, though.

    The joke is that neither of these things are really the case any more, almost as though what he knew as a child is no longer the case. Robotnik is name-dropped every so often, but Miles Prower never is.

    Every time new stuff is revealed it feels more and more like Sonic Team has learned nothing, and has taken yet another step backwards. Didn't they try the ring cap in Lost World and nobody liked it, resulting in the cap being patched out? Why is history being repeated literally the next game?

    No Lost World didn't have a ring cap, I thought the issue was that rings didn't give you lives initially.

    And now Sonic Team has completely killed off lives so we don't moan about that fact :specialed:/> Yes SLW never gave you lives when you went past 100 rings and was eventually patched later on.

    You can also lose 20 rings when getting hit now instead of losing all your rings like previous builds which is nice touch but we gain a ring limit which isn't nice.

    I though that certain custom hero species had the added benefit of holding on to one ring when taking damage, or were able to pick up dropped rings. Those abilities were dumb to start with, and now seem even more unnecessary.

    I don't really know bird species either, apart from the super obvious like you mention. But it's just weird to me that they would suddenly go with "bird", when it's one of the six major types of animal, rather than an a species. I get that birds often are lumped together into one big group whilst we differentiate between mammals more regularly, but the series already has defined bird species.

    "Bird" is a species to choose from and that really really bothers me. It's tantamount to having all of the other custom hero species just being called "mammal". And the series already has a hawk, a swallow and an albatross, so "bird" just doesn't work. Could they not have called it a sparrow, a pigeon or some other type of bird? It's just so.... Urgh.
