Re: "To catch a shadow"- The Ultimate Life Form conspiracy

^I thought Sega's other franchises were generally considered to have competent Story telling and that it's only Sonic where they tend to fall flat on their face whenever they try for epic tales.

That said, this continues to be a very compelling interpretation.

Re: Least favorite Sonic games?

Of the Sonic games I've played, I'd have to give my top three least favorite slots to Drift, Drift 2, and Labyrinth. Some of them are Nintendo Hard, but the rest of the GG Sonic Catalog are at least enjoyable.

That said, I'm curious as to why Tails' Adventures would get a mention in this thread.

Re: All S Chao with Gold medal breeding question

I've never heard of this, and I'm unable to do any testing to confirm it, but this sounds like one of those bits of false information people post online to make people waste their time trying to pull off the difficult and/or time consuming, but possible task only to discover it doesn't work.

As well as a 1/4 chance each of shiny monotone, non-shiny monotone, and non-shiny two-tone. The offspring will be hete...

Re: Controversial opinion topic

For what its worth, Sonic 1 is generally considered the weakest of the Genesis Trilogy, and almost no one really cares for S3 and S&K individually. That said, it does seem a bit extreme to bash an entire game over that one level, though I will agree that Chemical Plant's endgame where you have chall...

Re: Normal type chao

The simplest way of getting a normal-type chao is to simply not give it any animals or Chaos Drives at all. If you still want to give your Chao animals and/or drives, you need to keep both the Run<>Power and Swim<>Fly sliders in their neutral positions. This can be accomplished in many ways, but per...

Re: Question about alignment evolution.

The Hero<>Dark evolution slider can only be manipulated during a Chao's childhood.

The other two evolution sliders, run<>power and swim<>fl...
