    Sonic x Angry Birds
    idk if anyone here is into Angry Birds but this was just announced. They sure get a lot of mileage out of those Generations renders don't they?

    I don't expect the collab to be that good if it's for an Angry Birds game. Take, for example, Angry Birds Epic. The Sonic collaboration was slapping a PNG of Sonic over Chuck, then calling it a day. Though Sega has bought Rovio as one of its subsidiaries, I don't expect them to change their way of promoting other franchises. (Though the event on Sonic Dash was worth it cause; why not have Knight Red homing attack Eggman?)

    Not only that, a similar thing is happening for the Puyo Puyo game coming on Apple Arcade. You can't expect everything to be that exciting if it's not that interesting.

    Do you think Angry Birds fans have design debates like we do?

    Yes, hilariously enough. There's been some comeuppance for a long while about AB ditching the classic design and art for the movie designs, especially since even when it's not the movie designs it's just a more cutesy version of the classic style, which AB fans also dont like.

    Writing this post made me realize that these fandoms are like twins

    all this is making me realize, is that ANGRY BIRDS GENERATIONS is a legitimate possibility.

    I wonder if there's a "modern design" character that they absolutely hate the idea of being in classic angry birds like Shadow.

    For one week only. Better make the most of this historic event, one day in the distant future your grandkids will ask what you were doing when the Angry Birds met Sonic. You don't want to disappoint them...

    I mean tbf I'm not even an Angry Birds fans at all, but the original mobile designs do look more appealing and unique to me than the more generic movie designs. Pretty much any fanbase of a long running series is bound to have arguments about design and such. Of course not all of them are as intense as the Sonic fanbase lmao.

    I’ve never seen Rayman fans arguing over his design, and it was different in almost every mainline title…

    Oh wait, there are like 5 of us, Rayman fans :V

    I, for one, dislike Rayman having two separate eyes, if that's of any use to you.

    On one hand, the classic designs are iconic. That's what people know Angry Birds as.
    On another, the movie designs do fit a lot more into the Sonic universe (Not 100%, but at least they have legs to run on) so it makes sense for this collab.

    Would've been neat if, in Sonic Dash, they also added tokens for the old Angry Birds Epic collab from 2015. But it seems that Epic has been delisted. I doubt people are that upset about it though.

    Seeing all this Angry Birds content certainly makes me nostalgic for the early 2010's. Unfortunately it seems like the series has been turned into a corporate shell of what I remember it... Angry Birds Friends? Angry Birds Dream Blast? It all just feels hollow. So I've got no plans to return to this series, and I imagine many others won't either. AB will be relevant just for this week with the Sonic stuff going on, and then immediately fade back into hollow mediocrity.

    Rayman is a series with zero consistency in general. Rayman 1 and 2 for example almost don't even feel like they're from the same series lmao. None of the characters aside from Rayman himself even carry over. The settings and tone feel quite a bit different as well. So maybe Rayman fans are just really used to inconsistency :p .

    I mean, isn't being a "corporate shell" Angry Birds's bread and butter? The original game was a ripoff of a much less known free Flash game.

    I used to be into the series since 2011/2012/2013 (?). It's all thanks to my sister for recommending the series for me, I have played the classic, Seasons, the Rio crossover and Space (and Angry Birds Friends, too.). It has spawned TV series like Angry Birds Toons, Piggy Tales and Angry Birds Stella (the spin-off series discontinued btw). Then things get kind of ... odd. There's Star Wars and Transformers crossovers existed to please both the former and the latter fans and nothing else. Then I lost interest and start getting into other games like Sonic. A few years later, I watched Angry Birds Films for a first time and it was okay. That's all.

    Yea that's still not a design criticism though. Just a criticism of a bunch of wacky creatures taking over one of your favorite franchises.
