The Stupidity of Sonic Fanboys

There is the group of Sonic fanboys who have started a petition to boycott Sonic 4... by purchasing Sonic 1 on the date of release. So basically, they're just throwing money at Sega. How nice.

Here's the actual petition from the idiots themselves.

Fans of the sonic series are like most sega fans, we want their old games brought back to the glory days when sega was pretty much the power in video games. Seeing the gameplay of sonic 4 has made many of us realize what we already knew, Sonic 4 will simply not be anywhere near as good as the original sonic games. Either way, We will decide to finally show sega what the fans truly want. A real sonic 4, as long as sonic 4 stays the way it is, we will not buy it, we will in fact buy sonic 1 on release in protest of sonic 4, till we end up with a re tool, or change, we want sonic in hd, not sonic RUSH HD. We will not buy a future sonic game, till we get a true successor to sonic 1/2


So, these so called "fans" are pissed just because of TWO FREAKING SECONDS of gameplay footage? That is just pathetic.

Now, I may not have been in the Sonic fanbase for as long as others, but even I know that they're going too far. We don't know if the game will be good or bad. There's nothing to based that on.

Besides, why are they getting pissed now? They've been using the same design for years, so why now? Plus, why Sonic 1? What about Sonic 2 or Sonic 3 & Knuckles? Those two games have a more improvements over the first game. This is just very humiliating to the Sonic fanbase.

To those who are smart and are actually waiting for the game and not basing their opinion on the look of the game, I applaud you. I just really want this cycle to end. They've taken the Sonic Cycle too far.

Reaction to Goseiger Epic 1

As you can tell by the title, I had watched the first episode of Tensou Sentai Goseiger, subbed by TV-Nihon. My thoughts: it was pretty good. But not great.

My favorite parts of the show are the card techniques, similar to Decade in way (And don't call it a rip-off, considering that Sentai and KR are made by the same company). Anyway, the cards basically activate the Tensou Techniques, which is pretty cool. The weapons themselves look different, but unique.

The characters are a little hard for me to decide on, considering that I only watched one episode and I don't know Japanese (Though I am considering starting to learn it). But, the suits look like a cross breed between retro sentai and new sentai. Not to mention that the side view of the helmets look awesome, though I wish the white spots had their color so that it blends it (Though it wouldn't work for black. Purple would be a nice replacement). Not to mention that the villains look more neater and better designed than Shinkenger.

May I add that I freaking LOVE the opening and the ending?!!! <--- (I just did) lol

But, the things that I found a little off is the transition into the morphing sequence, that is, they weren't in sync. Another thing is that it doesn't seem too appealing when coming off of Shinkenger. Also, the CGI. For Sentai and Kamen Rider, the CGI looks... out of place. CGI is supposed to blend in to the environment, not make a stick out. Then again, it's a kids show. I don't think they give a crap.

So, overall, it was actually pretty good. Not what I anticipated but still good. But, now it is time to enjoy 2010 SUPER HERO TIME!

...in space?

My Next Project

So, on my YouTube channel, you'll see that I haven't uploaded anything in a week. But, I will get a new OST to upload. I did plan to upload the Ryuki OST, but for some odd reason, there was no sound. So, I shall be on the hunt for one. And I know just where to start looking...

Besides, I have been pretty busy, considering that school as been holding me back. Plus, I've been working on other stuff. So, yeah...
