Discussion in 'Characters' started by pokemondream, Feb 7, 2011.
I have my doubts.
sanic 2 fast
he was in game, then he left
u miss him sry
We tried Sonic a bunch of times; ends up he's OP as FUCK and works best on a game of his own. Read this very thread for more info.
Because there are already ways to experience sonic in smb eg. Sonic boll, sonic jam 6
Sonic has been requested so many times.
And each time, we redirect them here.
In the future, please search for relevant topics before posting. Thanks
Because SMBC was made as a celebration for NES games
Genesis has nothing to do with the NES
It's not even in 8 bit
So therefore, Sonic isn't even relevant
Unless you're like "hurr durr geNESis"
And from a technical point
SMBC's music emulator (or whatever) doesn't support the Genesis music format.
(which is a damn shame because i wanted to make some Genesis skins)
I want him just as much as you do, but it just doesn't make any sense.
I vaguely recall a discussion about Sonic's gameplay style, and how it wouldn't quite fit SMB levels because speed or something along those lines, I can't remember if that's what it was, or even if that was a thing, but still, i think it's worth noting. not to mention we've already got the "run, jump, hit enemies on the head" playstyle covered by two characters, soooo
no offence, but I think him not being a NES character is more of a bad excuse personally. at that point, he could be added as a skin, and doesn't ryu have that master system skin, kinda throwing the NES/nintendo thing out the window anyways? just saying.
I mean, I don't really want him in myself, don't really think he'd be good. just to be clear.
Jay has officially stated that being on the NES isn't necessary a qualifier.
Also, we have a thread for Sonic that I linked to above; please discuss this in that thread.
I didn't say skins weren't a possibility
He just won't get his own character
And that's not what I meant, it's less not being an NES character and more not being relevant
Bass is from MegaMan 10, but that was a throwback to the NES days, so he fits in just fine
Sonic's only appearances on 8 bit systems styled games were the Master System games and those don't even go by the NES limits in the slightest, so any way you slice it he just wouldn't fit in
And there was that one Neo Geo Pocket game but that's way too advanced in comparison
Of course, Jay can do whatever the fuck he wants and completely throw relevancy out the window, but he hasn't yet.
My entire post was just my answer to the question in the thread title, but since I'm not Jay it's just what I think.
This is the actual thread, but you already knew that.
Adding sonic can't be that unrelevant.
Because sonic and mario are in 3 olympic games, brawl, and not to mention the community coming up with other ways for the crossover...Say isn't this game called SUPER MARIO BROS. CROSSOVER?!?!?!?!?!
wat sorc3ry iz dis!
Somehow I saw this coming.
The problem is, you're thinking waaay too recent. We here are talking the days when Nintendo and Sega were complete bitter rivals.
And are you seriously using brawl as an example?
Okay, then I want Captain Falcon in SMBC.
Hey now.. I remember liking the Cpt. Falcon skin for Ryu that was made.
(course, that's just a skin and not a character of his own..)
i feel like nobody actually read my posts
but when i don't mention "as a skin" then i mean the character itself
Uhm.. I did put that little bit there in parentheses, so the feeling is mutual.
There's no such thing as an invalid character request, and we can't judge whether ER will add something to the game because we don't know their criteria.
This is a silly discussion through and through; we should drop it and get back to discussing Sonic's gameplay rather than his (unquestionable) validity as a request.
i'd see him working a lot like mario does
basic run and jump kinda deal except you don't actually have to hold the B button to run
and you can kill things from all directions instead of just stomping
maybe he'd die in one hit regardless of whether he has a mushroom or not, because there are no rings in smb
and there's the obvious spindash, maybe it'd make more sense to enable that after you get a mushroom
also running up those stairs of blocks without actually having to jump
oh yeah and elemental shields to differentiate sonic more
Funny how that was a thing in Sonic Boll.
