Makes sense. A whole bunch of new characters, not properly introduced,
would throw those poor Euros for a loop (no offense intended, just being
silly). And as I have Sonics 1, 2, K, and CD, and plan to get 3 and
Spinball as soon as funds allow, I guess I'm biased towards the game's

While I'm thinking of the games, anyone else share my gripe that the
plots for Sonic and Knuckles in S3&K (in case I'm confusing anyone with
this abbreviation, it's Sonic 3 and Sonick&Knuckles locked together)
diverge so widely at the end? I mean, Knuckles never sees either Sonic
or the Death Egg... and poor Tails is stuck being the poor man's Sonic
again (at least this time they let him fly and swim and stuff). Ah
well. Maybe some day they'll do a Tails game for the Sega...

Personally, I don't think there's a thing wrong with that, but I suppose
a movie for American audiences ought to look more American. Perhaps,
though, the Japanese should do a Sonic anime which I can have my local
anime club import... (;3

Actually, I'm so-so on the SatAM animation quality. It's miles beyond
the afternoon stuff (but then, Mario Bros. is on a par with *that*) and
pretty high-quality for SatAM fare, but a movie should look a lot
better. Of course, movies have higher budgets... so I guess we'll wait
and see.

That could be interesting. But I thought DIC was partly Japanese...

Good point. (:3 Anyone want to take up the challenge?

(Geez, Alessandro and I are becoming regular post hogs on this list...)
