Brooooo my favourite let's player just reached Sonic Unleashed in his Sonic marathon and I forgot how great Eggman is in this game. That's what I get for not playing it in a very long time.
YEEESSS I adore Unleashed Eggman so much 🥰💜💕💘💖
It already started off strong with the amazing intro cutscene, not only for the visuals that I endlessly praise but the awesome event and Eggman success too. How he lured Sonic in, played up an act with talk of turning over a new leaf and then struck when he least expected it, to drain him of all the emerald energy and use it to power the beam that would break the whole planet apart and awaken Dark Gaia. It was an epic move, seeing how cunning and calculated he was and the crazy amount of destruction (and death let's be real) that he willingly caused to unleash Dark Gaia. Throwing out the emeralds with Sonic is considered an oversight to people but I defend that because I can't think of what else he could've done in that situation to prevent them from falling out into space with Sonic.
Plus, it's not like he didn't do anything about it. He tried to track down the Gaia temples before Sonic could restore the emeralds and benefitted from the Dark Gaia guardians too. He also brought out mechs like the Egg Cauldron, Egg Beetle, Devil Egg Ray, and Egg Lancer in hopes of stopping him and at least slowing him down while waiting for Dark Gaia's pieces to come to him instead of trying to gather them after they scattered. I also like how, in the PS2/Wii version, he pilots the Egg Beetle, Devil Egg Ray, and Egg Lancer himself, instead of Egg Fighter hands and SA-55 in the latter two in the 360/PS3 version. I always like getting more Eggman and it's like damn he gets around and is really fighting to stop Sonic from ruining this lol
And on top of all that, he manages to make a part of his biggest dream come true by building Eggmanland, right on top of the last temple. And it's just the most fucked up place ever and he knows and loves it and it's hell in both versions of the game and I fucking love it. XD The Egg Dragoon fight is also amazing and one of the most thrilling bosses. His threats and aggression and how daring he was despite the danger was so gripping and intense. You can really tell how he was desperate and determined to fight as hard as he could in both his actions and words, to the point Sonic tried to tell him to simmer down. He might have gotten fucked up by the strong Werehog in the end but he put up a good fight with his awesome looking mech with super cool abilities.
Only part I don't like is him randomly getting knocked aside by Dark Gaia as it was unnecessary for him to get fucked over by another bad guy again but besides that I adore his role. I like the different stages, steps, and ability to adapt in his plan and it doesn't feel like he sat back and did nothing, he knew the best times to act or wait and seemed eager and determined to make things work one way or another, even when things didn't go exactly as planned. But where's the fun in having his plans succeed without any challenge? He was also entertaining all the way through as usual but I especially enjoy Eggman's animation in both the CG and in game scenes and it's one of my absolute favorite performances from Mike Pollock, he was incredible. 💜🥚
Also there's the breathtaking Eggman CG that's the real Sonic movie in my heart and will never fail to leave me in awe and joy because he's GORGEOUS
And there's this unforgettable glorious sandwich and his champion level demolishing of it in just seconds
What's not to love? XD
I really wanna do my annual replay of both the 360/PS3 version and the PS2/Wii one already. If only my TV wasn't broken. :') I highly recommend everyone to play or replay it again if they haven't for a while. Both versions are good but the 360/PS3 version is an absolute must!
Let's eat! 🎵
Tails 🦊 is enjoying some camping and a BBQ at an archeological site in Adabat. The area is full of nature from the mountains and the sea.
There have been wonderful findings here based on the ancient catastrophe known as “The Gaia Legend.” The food at the camp is also pretty delicious!
Finally from tomorrow, it’s Golden Week! ＃ゴールデンウィーク ☀
Have a nice vacation! 🏕

Something to note about Tails between the movie verse and the games
In the movie verse Tails has his tails upright!
look at the little tail flicks ☺
If he's kneeling or sitting down, his tails lie flat
In the games, his tails appear to always lie "flat", with a wave motion
Same as when he's sitting down
Also bonus Baby/Classic Tails
All the Sonic news is so cool
