Non-Player Counselor: Sonic Might be a Lost Cause

Sonic Might be a Lost Cause

This week Sonic sits on the couch after being the most fan-requested patient by a large margin. That might speak for itself.

This could've used that irritating guy, what's his face.... That would've been an improvement over listening to Sonic.... Especially if he made that Sonic Boom reference.

I liked the Scorpion intro.

That's the second one in a row where the receptionist actually seems nice (for the most part): I'm glad because she was getting on my nerves almost as much as that really irritating guy that kept interrupting sessions.

I would've liked to hear more about what happened to Tails, though; I always liked him (and Knuckles) more than Sonic.

Gotta say this series is growing on me. It's genuinely funny.

I got a genuine case of the "Awwwwwwwww"s when Dr. Gold gave Sonic a hug. Poor little guy needed one bad. Still couldn't nail down his main problem, though. Is he struggling to stay relevant?

Oh! We gotta hear some of Mario's problems! You can challenge yourselves to cover something about him the Game Theorists already didn't.

What is Sonic the Hedgehog not on anymore?

Thank you! We like growing on people, makes it easier to release our spores

Hadn't been watching this, but I just binged all the episodes today and found it hilarious! Great job, guys!
Favorite was definitely the Pac-Man episode.

My suggestion for an episode:
Cloud Strife discussing his anxiety over the FF7 remake actually happening.

Going to have to give this two thumbs down.
It had no real useful information, the art was... pretty lame which sort of makes me wonder why stills? The scripting was somewhat... is it improv? Lastly, it wasn't really funny.

Poor Sonic. He really needs a good game. The last one I played was Generations which was pretty good for about 90% of the game, but dropped the ball on the ending.

Seems to me that they are going with a Dr Katz sort of feel and style. Which it honestly nails pretty well.

Yikes. Sonic needs to get a different job. I would like to see that story, unless it completely changes around 3rd season, and goes completely off the rails in the finale, but is still overall enjoyable. I can only dream.

While I don't blame you for not checking the game out (I only saw much of it on Game Grumps), the Sonic Boom joke could have had more fleshing-out, like "heck, I wasn't even running at Mach 3 that time! I haven't ran that fast in years! These developers keep stretching my legs as if it will help, but it just throws me off-balance!"

How about Solid Snake on the topic of the last MGS game?

Yep, Dr Katz all the way. Glad you got it. If it makes the other guy feel any better, we're about to update the art. Might be a bit more detailed and enjoyable

Keep them coming guys. I am enjoying them. The receptionist bit was best yet.
Sonic right hand on his left arm at 3:35. It's the Master Chief blunder all over again. :)
