    I just feel like it's a quota that doesn't need to be filled ya know? It's like if you were unnecessarily kicked in the nuts when you walked inside, only to eventually be given the option, and you chose to continue the trend out of tradition.

    A closer analogy would be someone unnecessarily kicking people in the nuts when they walk inside, being asked to stop, then doing it more often specifically because they were asked to stop. (Your analogy would imply you enjoy looking for porn of these characters, which I'm sure isn't true given your reactions.)

    Ya perhaps I worded that wrong. I just wanted to have an analogy of "Sonic porn = pain." If not physical or emotional pain to them then both physical and emotional pain to their parents if they ever found out haha

    You guys do realize that there actually are people who enjoy that sort of stuff, right? I mean, people can have weird fetishes. just look at /d/ on 4chan. + - Also don't look at /d/ on 4chan unless you're actually into that stuff.  

    Also let's not make this thread about weird fetishes.

    Yeaaaa I know, I mean I hate to admit it but younger me liked that crap too. Now? Just nah.

    But yes, Sonic Boom. I wonder what we're going to get to see at Comic Con? I hate to admit it, but seeing as how this looks better than Heroes off the bat and the curiosity of Western Sonic in the modern age, I'll prob pick this up. It could be fun.

    I'd insert that Sonic Shorts clip of "I must draw porn of it", but I can't find it, so you'll all just have to remember it.

    Whatever, I've been on the internet long enough to know this happens, it doesn't surprise me in the slightest, and I know there are plenty of people that are going to enjoy it. Let them do it, I have no right to judge what porn people look at.

    Actually, I'm going to open this can of worms right now. I'm surprised that a certain somebody isn't exploding like the Niburu volcano (sorry for the Star Trek reference but I genuinely can't think of an active Earth volcano right now... consider it a clue anyways as to who I mean) over Perci. There's a character in another branch of Sonic media that she is more similar in appearance to.

    Is there anyone else excited about the TV Series more than the game?

    I can imagine they have those slapstick, couple, old people humor with robotic jokes and aquarium puns non-cheesingly executed.
    I'm looking into this waaaaay too much

    I think most with any interest in Sonic Boom are is at this point. The TV Series actually looks alright while the games don't look so great. Also people who are into the Archie comics might be looking forward to the Sonic Boom comic.

    I'm legitimately excited for the TV show. I don't have immense expectations (This isn't going to be the next Adventure Time) but it might be the first Sonic tv show that is indisputably good. Seems like they're going for a good mix of humor and action this time.

    As for the game, I have little to no interest. Neither the Wii U or 3DS versions look like they're going to be anything spectacular, but hopefully they at least come up with one or two mechanics that are good enough to transplant to the main series.

    Anyone else think that Sonic's pose in the WiiU cover is a little awkward? Maybe it looks odd because we're adjusted to Sonic running into the cover and taking up 30+% of the boxart?


    There's also something reeeally off model about Knuckles' face in the 3DS cover...

    I'm actually quite fond of the art used on the Wii U cover. One of the few pieces of artwork where the characters don't look derpy.

    Now the 3DS version on the other hand, idk why but I'm getting a Sonic 3D Blast vibe from Sonic, and idk why but 9/10 times Knuckles looks terrible.

    Don't worry, I've got the situation under control.

    Edit: Redid it from higher-res boxart that TimmiT posted.

    Oh good, there weren't enough dimples on the previous cover.

    Much better, would look at again 10/10. You could make it an 11/10 by photoshoping the Sonic and the Secret Rings box art shit eating grin on each one of their faces

    I like the idea, but the lighting is significantly different in that one and would require significantly more work to get looking good; I just used the S4E1 logo mouth for everyone, because it was easy.

    Honestly if it's animated correctly, center mouths don't look bad on them at all... Tails has always had a center mouth and Amy looks fine with one. So does Knuckles actually, even if he doesn't look as angry as he is "its srs time"

    I'm just kicking back and seeing how this goes. At best, we get a decent game and brand split. At worst, it goes careening off a cliff in flames, taking millions of dollars with it. Best just to enjoy the ride.
