>>196085 After the reaction to Project Milo, I'm wondering if people have some general reaction of being unable to see advanced NPC conversation systems as good for anything but sex bots. I mean this one actually has a potential waifu (who incidentally resembles Sonic Boom's Amy to me at the moment for some reason) in it, but still.
>>418681 The DS game is just the ending of the end, a horrible multiple choice adventure, where each ending is written to be awful.
The beginning of the end was cancelling Dinosaur Planet and forcing it into becoming SFA. One of the greatest tragedies of vidya history. OG Krystal was not the deepest, but at least a GOOD character, and had her own adventure.
>>419019 Because I'm used to the original games, where you had a cute little goblin running around in surreal looking landscapes, burrowing into walls, while freeing cute fluffy animals from being turned into slaves by a stereotypical mad doctor, all the while listening into chill music.
By comparison Battle has an entire zoo's worth of cast and a forced drama storyline, and the gameplay is about specifically beating up other allies/enemies in an anime fighting arena. The patented gameboy advance ear rape audio doesn't help either.
>>419043 Random princess from the kingdom of whatever that was under assault by Eggman, potential new love interest for Sonic to save. Her crown jewel achievement was combining bestiality and necrophilia by making out with a dead furry animal. As far as I know she was never seen again, and they haven't bothered adding new human characters into the series either. I could be wrong about that since I never played any of the later games, but I don't remember any online chatter about her appearing again.
