Applying article about gamers to Sonic hatedomApplying this article about gamers to Sonic fandomApplying article about gamers to Sonic hatedom1 month ago in Personal More Like This
So I was doing some research on gaming for a sec and ran into this article I found. It speaks a lot about gamers, our culture, and how we're represented. It's a pretty decent article because it calls out much of the bullshit we see on the internet when it comes to how juvenile gamers can be. What I wanted to touch on most is how gamers are usually represented by said gamers I spoke of, or simply trolls. This part right here really got me:
(Right, let’s say it’s a vocal minority that’s not representative of most people. Most people, from indies to industry leaders, are mortified, furious, disheartened at the direction industry conversation has taken in the past few weeks. It’s not like there are reputable outlets publishing rational articles in favor of the trolls’ ‘side’. Don’t give press to the harassers. Don’t blame an entire industry for a few bad apples.
Yet disclaiming liabilit
Sonic Colors Era LegacyI am not finished yet. There is something I want people to ponder about. I don't want them to eat every word I say, I don't want to claim that I have a monopoly on what is right and wrong. But all I want is for people to get this thought into their heads and process it! Seriously process it! Not just listen to it and immediately throw it away because it... offends them! That would be the worst thing. Because I think that all evil in this world always started with a person that was offended. And most of the time, the offended person just was offended for no good reason, as he/she didn't understand the true meaning of the message.Sonic Colors Era Legacy1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sales don't matter, love does! Allegedly...
We were systematically taught that as long as there is positivity in the cyberspace, everything is in the perfect condition. Negativity causes destruction of the perfect image... and perfect image is something that solely creates a perfect world. We should not look for opinions of

I come across people who love Shinobi, but I look at Shinobi and all I see are issues, and issues and issues and issues. But there are people who love it, and in the case of the Sonic Boom games, I see both. I see that we tried to do something different.
Stop making excuses Frost. The issues with Sonic Boom are not that you were trying to do something different. It was that you gloriously failed on executing this different direction. It is extremely boring, no fun, grating, annoying and broken experience. The game is like a chore for people. They are supposed to finish it because they are Sonic fans. But they don’t really want to.
Even if you are different, you still need to be good. Being different is not an excuse. Bubsy 3D is also a different game. I guess that it makes it unique and successful, right?
I think the challenge is that if you think about it like this, Sonic Team has been making Sonic games for

Group Contest![EDIT] Several people have asked, and no, there is no limit on how many times you submit to the contest. You can put in as many ponies as you want.Group Contest!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
In addition, I chose to make it other people's OC's because it is more challenging to make a design for someone else than it is for yourself.
Also: Please do not use this journal to ask people to make your OC. If they want to make it, then they'll ask. Thank you.
Hello! Because of the surplus of points given by our wonderful members when getting a renewed super group, we have decided to hold a contest to give the points back to the community!
The contest is going to be for Gala outfit designs! Now, I know the Royal Wedding is coming up, but the outfits have already been released for the mane six, as well as many of the background characters. So this is going to be for the next year's Grand Galloping Gala.
There will be two categories, and three grand prizes!
First, canon character designs. This means the mane six or any canon backgro

The Walking SonicDo You Want to Know How I Got These Scars?The Walking Sonic8 months ago in Personal More Like This
(This is just a preface, skip to "The Walking Sonic" if you want to know my reaction to the Sonic Boom Fire and Ice interview. And damn, I was angry while writing this article. Harsh criticism and name-calling incoming )
I am Dracold the Dragon.
You probably noticed the eight black stripes on my muzzle. Those are no markings. Those are scars.
And just like Joker from the Dark Knight, I got several stories how I got these scars. Joker's stories are not just stories about how he got those scars... those are also the stories about how he went mad. He made up several versions of his past. Possibly to cover up his real past as it was so horrible he never wanted to talk about it... or because he really did not remember it anymore... or because he thought it would be funny to have "multiple choice" past.
I was unfortunate enough to read the damn interview about the second Sonic Boom game for the 3DS.

Will you be my friend?The funny thing about people knowing you, is that many people want to be your friend.Will you be my friend?1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
"Will you be my friend?" is one those questions I get the most.
It's also one the questions I have to answer with a negative answer the most, because I don't like lying to people.
Like I've told in some of my earlier journals, my life didn't overflow with friendship nor popularity when I was younger. It was quite the contrary. I wasn't anything near popular, to the point that most people didn't even want to have anything to do with me. As the kid that got bullied, the few that dared to get close to me, more or less put their social status in the group at stake by even talking to me. And as a result, I guess I valued their friendship a lot. After all; I knew what they risked.
Coming from that sort of situation, friendship has always been a very important but at the same time mysterious matter to me. Something not be

80 Question tagTagged by :iconmarduk-kurios:80 Question tag10 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. WHAT DOES YOUR DEVIANTART NAME MEAN AND WHY?
My name comes from the Warriors series by Erin Hunter. The story behind it was I started off as Foxpaw because I realized there were a lot of names like Tiger, Badger etc of animals dangerous to cats, so why not fox? But because I couldn't think of a good suffix for a warrior name, I stuck with paw as an apprentice until I figured one out. Then when I got a new book from the series and read it, my heart skipped a beat when I saw Thunderclan had a new apprentice named Foxpaw. But when he became Foxleap, I was rather disappointed because I felt the name wasn't very good, which inspired me to think more about my potential warrior name. Then when I read something that mentioned Lionblaze, I somehow made the connection and was like 'Foxblaze would be an awesome warrior name!' And there you have it :3

Excuse and plans for the next week!It's been a tough week for me, i couldn't draw anything at all, not even some sketches could be done! ~.~Excuse and plans for the next week!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The reason why i wasn´t active is school...but i don´t want to talk about this here.
This is deviantArt, no place for negative thoughts!
Anyways, i am really sorry about that.
Plans and ideas for the next week :
- Update my (Key)weapon concept!
- Post a few Keyweapons or Custom Weapons!
- Maybe introduce the KHBAB Class System!
- Upload a spell or two!
- Talk to my Master about serious master/apprentice teamwork stuff!
Like i said those are only plans, so i can´t guarantee anything!
But i will do what i can, i promise! ^^
