Okay has everyone calmed down after that surprise? No... take a few more deep breaths...
Now that I've had a bit of time to think about custom characters in Sonic it makes sense, for years SEGA has watched as fans create their own custom characters based on the franchise no matter how stupid or overpowered or convoluted they turn out, I am including my own idiotic creations in this (I was young).
So now SEGA have decided to capitalise on this by saying okay you like making fan characters? Here's a game that you can actually have your charecter play alongside Sonic. It's pretty much as close as people are going to get to being in the game with Sonic... and let's be fair there will be some that prefer that to real life. Now all SEGA has to deal with is complaints of why certain species 'x' hasn't been included, I do not envy them, they included hedgehogs but no foxes? THIS IS A TRAVISTY!... and so on.
On the flipside, gameplay trailer looks pretty fun combining the best of what we have seen out of the last few games and what sounds like a kick ass soundtrack, I'm looking forward to seeing more.
Did you know there are still tickets still available for Summer of Sonic? No? Well there are still a few! Head over to the Summer of Sonic Hub FAQ page and click on the 'I missed the Kickstarter, can I get tickets?' question to find out how you can grab a ticket.
Do it now, you don't know how long these tickets are going to last.
First and foremost, my personal opinion does not mean everyone on this site, or its affiliates share it.
But after hearing people weigh in on the whole Sonic BOOM and seeing people either praising or demanding heads on a stick; I decided it was time to pass on a fair warning to the publisher who has found themselves in the steely gaze of the Sonic Community.
SEGA have gone and put up a video explaining a bit more about the ideas of the new Sonic Boom game and TV show, including interviews with the game developers and TV show runner you start to clearer idea of what they are trying to do...
... and I know I'm probably going to get flamed for saying this but I like it.
As an extra side note, no comic tomorrow, it's taking longer than I thought to develop the sprites... for once the script isn't the problem!
I couldn't resist, EC News is back after a very long hiatus for a second season, new and improved with after effects (work in progress I'm still getting my head round this thing) and show notes because doing forty takes before I get it right is just annoying, saying that this still took about thirty takes.
Also I may have had a hair cut... and a shave since my last video deal with it.
What is this you ask? Why have I been distracted as of late? Why have I been skipping out of Comics, not bothering to put together promised archs or completing things on time? I mostly blame video games in general. However;
