Welcome to Episode 100!


Eon's plans aren't looking too good.
And everything was just getting cheerful again!

You know I don't watch the show. But, it occurs to me that Eon isn't a very original villain. If you swapped him for the locust thing I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

I mean, sure, in "Batman" the Riddler and the Joker, Bane and Death mask, or the Scarecrow and Mad hatter, could be more or less swapped in a script before production with minimal notice. However, I think it behooves you to give your villain a quirk, something that sets him apart from other villains.

@GabrielsThoughts: This whole comic isn't all that original. It's kind of a standard "Human in Equestria," except in this case, it's a Sonic the Hedgehog OC in Equestria. ...And now that I've typed that out, it seems even more ridiculous.

So, I hear some of the makers of FiM are making a new Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon called "Sonic Boom..." Unfortunately, I only heard about it from a comment on another comic on Smackjeeves, and the guy didn't post a link, so I have no idea how true it is (I'm too lazy to go look for confirmation myself).

@Jarkes:

That's interesting, I think the pilot episode of SatAM was titled sonic boom.

Incidentally, Lugbzurg is one of the few people I've seen who actually prefers the darker storylines of the Sonic Adventure games to the much more lighthearted stuff of the past couple years. I really don't get it. I mean, I for one am glad that the Sonic games are far less serious these days. Maybe we just have different tastes in humor and he doesn't find it funny...

EDIT: Let me put it this way: I liked the storylines of the Adventure games, but after a certain point, there was a time when the series was trying way too hard to be serious, and it ended up being ridiculous as a result (Shadow the Hedgehog, Sonic '06). Yet Lugbzurg seems to think that everything after those games are actually worse, despite the fact that the stuff that came later is actually PLAYABLE and not filled to the brim with game-breaking glitches.

@Jarkes: Shadow the Hedgehog and Sonic '06 were considerably more playable. You could actually do things. You weren't told exactly what you needed to do in a very specific order every step of the way. Ever since I saw the first gameplay trailer for Sonic Unleashed, I began to wonder... "So, when do you actually get to PLAY the game?" Those recent games practically played themselves. I find the focus on gameplay left to the player's control is a significant upgrade for Sonic: Lost World.

@Lugbzurg: See, this is where we disagree. I've only noticed a few moments in both Colors and Generations where I felt like I wasn't in control, and most of those were during boss fights, where you enter the stage already moving rather quickly. I can see your point on Unleashed, though; the Daytime stages were a little TOO fast in that one, and on the Wii/PS2 version, the stages were almost completely devoid of enemies and obstacles, making it feel rather empty and devoid of challenge.

But really, why are we bringing this up again? I think it's pretty clear that you simply prefer the Adventure style of gameplay, and don't care for the greater emphasis on speed in the modern titles (ironically, some fans seem to think that the earlier games were pure speed, but they're not).

...I find it ironic that I started the discussion talking about the storylines of the games and it segued into the usual gameplay argument.

...Btw, have you been able to find anything confirming the production of a new Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon by the makers of MLP:FiM? I simply can't seem to find anything on the matter.

By the way, has anyone else noticed the spam posts on several comics (not just this one) where they seem to be carrying on an entirely different conversation with other people who aren't there? It's really weird.

This comic has a fair amount of flaws. But hey, remember the last time I tried to write a dramatic narrative? It was terrible.

This is only my second attempt. It's still somewhat partially-connected to a webcomic I started on back when I was thirteen and hadn't properly used the internet at that point. At this point, I've reached nineteen-and-a-half today, so my skills have begun to increase.

After I've departed from Serendipity, perhaps I'll have one last go at a fanfiction comic before I start on completely original works. But this time, it'll be hand-drawn!

@Lugbzurg:
To be fair, the review was an unclear narrative. He spent the first part of the review talking about you, and your antagonistic relationship with him, and then complained about how the story lines were derivative.

If you ask me, that was a poor review devoid of humor. Which, i might add, relied entirely to much on whether or not you actually read the comic, or knew what he was referring to in the first place.

Unfortunately, He wasn't interested in making his review clear enough for me to understand what was being said.

__Since__ I'm only familiar with the genesis games SatAM, and two sonic adventure games the review is meaningless.
