I didn't even think about it, but I guess I should be posting these here too incase any of you were interested and missed the original stream. It's from october but still has all our dumb, swear filled comedy. Just make sure you're okay with spoilers for upcoming art and projects since I'll be making it in the video.

Hiatus is still going, which is stupid I call it that given it's been me doing a lot of work every day! Comics, art (holiday or otherwise) and gearing up for this other project that I'm sure the fans of Sonic and Freedom Planet may dig. We'll have to see! .....Unless you've been watching the streams, then you have a pretty good idea on what's coming! Oh dear.

Either way I hope your holiday break was awesome, merry x-meh to you all and happy new year!

Art posts will resume after Jan 8th!

Let me start by saying I like some 3D Sonic titles a lot, played way too much Generations with the Unleashed mod (the day levels modded into the game) and Colors and heck Adventure 1, 2 and Sonic Heroes got tons of play time. I prefer the 2D Sonic titles but I have gotten tons of mileage out of the 3D titles.

Sonic Forces I knew was going to have an awful story because, they always try the grim dark story and it fails. Every, time. Sonic Adventure 2's story was riddled full of plot holes and angst, Shadow The Hedgehog also was terrible with it's comically bad story that tried to be dark but couldn't be taken seriously because, you know..Cartoon hedgehog with gun. Then the big one, Sonic 06 with the world being doomed to be destroyed, time travel and a dark God that is going to destroy the planet if the princess cries. I don't know why they keep doing this. It does't bloody work.

With Sonic Forces I was hoping the gameplay would be good enough to ignore the story and whatever. My cousin popped over and we had it on for a few hours before I pulled the plug. Levels are short, way, way too short. 3 and half minutes was the LONGEST we spent in a level and that was us screwing up. Some of the classic Sonic levels were just ..mediocre at best. Some parts of the level felt so phoned in and empty that it stood out big time. Then there's the create-a-character, called Rookie. My god...hold flamethrower button and walk forward for enemies, decent platforming otherwise.

I wouldn't hate the story so bad if it wasn't trying to take itself so seriously and it wasn't so AWFUL. It tries so hard to be dark and serious. Sonic is captured and tortured for six months (yes), the badguy who helps Robotnik/Eggman talks about death, despair and no hope. Cities are literally burning in the background of levels the main cast are held in a dingy room as the last hope......and your character, Rookie is beating levels and accessorizing with Gamer hats and Croc shoes.

Only made worse with some of the dialog...It's straight out of a generic first person shooter. "This is delta team, we're pinned down by enemy fire and need reinforcements!" can you guess the next line? "Can the rookie handle it?" To top this ALL off, this is crap you see in cutscenes and during RADIO chatter in game! (this is something you can thankfully disable) See what I mean by in your face? It's all so cringey.

Okay, so the gameplay is mediocre and levels aren't long enough, story sucks. But even Sonic 06 has some good music. So does Forces. But some of the music, specifically the Classic Sonic levels ...it's how I'd expect someone not familiar with the series would make a song when told by a director "make it sound retro" because they sound and feel generic and bland. They were likely done last minute since half the good music belongs to the Rookie's levels where he gets freaking voice tracks with rocking music. So even this is a mixed bag.

SEGA seems so desperate to drop the characters that so many love that they gave up and tried to let you make your own. Amy, Knuckles, Vector, Espio and Charmy are all just in the single room, dingy home base around a table (just like a generic first person shooter with a revolution theme) and chat there or over the radio. Tails? Tails literally curls up and cowers at the sight of an enemy when we just got done playing Mania where he's doing all sorts of stunts. Oh, also. Knuckles? The gullible idiot? He's the commander leading this army.

I'm not saying these games can't be a little dark. But this game is the equivlaent to Reaper from Overwatch. Trying WAY too hard and becoming a joke. Except here? It's not self aware. It's serious and it's not even funny in a bad way.

I recall when Sonic Colors was announced SEGA said old fans of the series wouldn't like it as it's made for kids and now online I've read people suggesting this game was made for the older Sonic fans. Neither is accurate. Sonic Colors was great for all ages, Sonic Forces I'm not sure I could recommend to anyone. It so mediocre it's painful. The game looks great, it's so close to being good with gameplay if they just made the levels longer and more paths ....like Generations!

The cherry on top, the game is buggy as hell on PC. Game crashed at least twice, controller direction bugged out and got stuck left. Framerate drops randomly that weren't repeatable (my PC runs DOOM on near highest at 120fps). This may be fixed, but the gameplay? Doubt that'll be sorted.

Buy Generations, Colors, Mania, anything besides this.

Hey everyone, sorry I've been so quiet and light on the postings here, Not abandoning DA or whatever just had a bit of a conundrum to suss out. See when I redid my website a little while back I redid all of the dialog/font & some of the effects so I wasn't exactly sure how to handle what I already posted here... What I decided was I'll start posting the new stuff and I guess retroactively editing what I posted before...all ...100+ pages...Yeah see why I was a bit uncertain on what to do? Hah...ah...yeah. BUT if you wanted to see more, we're quite a-ways-ahead of on the official Antares Complex site here: www.Antarescomplex.com

Ahem, anyway. On top of this I've been working on another project I'm hoping to release some info on soon. Well, there was a doodle of a hint before but BAH more coming soon I hope. I think it'll be pretty exciting to those of you who like cartoons & comics!

Other than that I've been really keeping on making more comics stuff and decided to dabble with my hardware kit and I'll post a review soon of the new gear I decided to get.

For now though, I hope you've all been havin' a good time and I'm sorry I kept you all waiting! 

Also I've updated my Patreon, if you're interested in seeing my artwork much earlier or even seeing comic pages early as well as seeing past live stream recordings OR just supporting my artwork, check that out here: www.patreon.com/Gx3RComics

Hey guys, sorry I've been so quiet recently. I've had a lot going on recently, more than usual ...annoyingly. My friend Lu and me used to stream every thursday but we've both been having some personal issues keeping us from doing our weekly streams

The TL:DR version: software issues, jury duty, work, hospital visits.

I had some software trouble on my Surface and tried 'resetting windows' which keeps all settings for software & the like but I was still having trouble. So had to a full on reinstall it and everything and get my Clip Studio Paint up to speed with settings. (Which is on sale, get it, GET IT!). Now things are running better than ever, pen feels much nicer than it did a few weeks ago. So that's good just annoying it took so long to fix. I still have some software to get up and running so I can stream.

More fun, jury duty summons! Some of you know what I do and why this is a major problem. It had me plenty stressed out and thankfully after a full day of being dragged through the slow tar-like system that is the courts I got out of it thankfully so I can concentrate on helping my family who needs it right now. Thanks to my cousin Geo who helped me get there and back and the lawyers who were understanding enough to help out.

The hospital visits were for a family member and they are now doing fine, as good as they can be. I don't want to bore you guys with the details.

So, where does this leave everything? Well, mostly back to normal really. I'm sure no one is reading this as I know DA blogs can be pretty boring if you're not super interested in the creator or they're not about some Llama based give-away but I've got some stuff to share anyway.

I haven't posted about it, but if you've followed my streams any you'll have noticed some recurring characters that aren't in Antares Complex. So what's up with that? I'm starting a new comic! It's NOT replacing Antares Complex. It's a comic with it's own plans and goals but it's going to be a light-hearted comic series that's the exact opposite of A.C. So, maybe more of you on DA would be interested in it. Like Shark and Lizard girls? Well this has them! I don't have an estimate when this will be out because I am doing it on the side and it's taken a learning curve to get my head around it and hey, I'm still learning! As we all should be.
Antares Complex is on hiatus as I've finished the latest issue and it'll resume shortly.

But anyway, I've gone on long enough. Let me know your thoughts and if I was just being too vague! I try not to give away too much because I want it to be interesting and not like movie trailers which will spoil EVERYTHING.

Thanks for reading all 1 of you and see you in a stream soon I hope!
Well I'm multistreaming that here:
