I keep trying to sprite Rotor and getting too frustrated to want to do it because of his new design. On the one hand the clothes are better but on the other they turned the sweet quiet Rotor
He doesn’t feel like Rotor anymore…
There’s plenty that can be done with one, but less so with two or more, according to Ian.
Here’s a link to a transcript of a stream where Ian talks about the issue with Rotor at length, amongst other things. Just ctrl+f for Rotor.
Just wanted to give full context for it.
Even with full context, the logical is heavily unsound.
Tails is Sonic’s SIDEKICK, and since we have now officially entered where the comic is closer to the games than ever before then shouldn’t that mean Tails is now the more active one? The one most out and about with Sonic?
You can even keep their precise skills and styles of science distinct; Rotor would be an individual improving constantly on what he already knows will work, Tails could be a more experimental sort trying brand new ideas and projects.
It’s made all the worse because Flynn ‘uplifted’ Muttski into taking a spot that Rotor would have done better. He mentions how Sir Charles AND Nate Morgan AND Tails made Rotor redundant, but if that’s the case why did he create yet another tech head whose presence would do just that? It makes no sense.
I’ve never been particularly sold on the Post-Reboot designs, but Rotor’s is the only one I can say I actively despise, along with the general direction his character has taken as a result of it.
As Melty said, hes’ not really Rotor anymore.
Why are people reblogging that Rotor thing as a link that cuts off the important part at the bottom. That’s so awkward. (´･_･`)
