-Why are the Zombots’ clothing turning metal, too?
-Where do the Tangle and Whisper stories and Annual 2019 stories fit into the timeline? Which issues do they take place between?

Sometimes the best part of a video game can be its unlockable rewards, which might give you new playable characters or costumes, or change the gameplay in some subtle or dramatic way. Some of these have pretty much become tradition for their games, such as super forms in the Sonic series and the red bricks in the Lego series. And then you have games like Goldeneye 007, where if you have played well enough, you can play any level with invincibility, unlimited ammo, and dual-wield every single weapon in the game!
What are some of your favourite unlockables in games? Aside from the ones I’ve already covered, one that comes to my mind is dragon Kazooie from Banjo-Tooie. Not only does it look cool, but it also gave Kazooie an awesome new fire-breathing attack. (Also, bonus points to Edna Mode mode from Lego The Incredibles, because that was hilarious!)

my question is, will we be seeing more of Cream in the Metal Virus arc in some way and in the future of the comic besides seeing her map drawing updated every issue, which is really adorable by the way 🙂 I ask this as in recent years, Cream has been reduced to a minor character in the games to the point of only showing up in mobile games where plots aren’t needed. Will Cream be handled as such in the IDW series as SEGA are more involved with this comic compared to the Archie series, or will we perhaps see more of her in the future having a bigger role like the rest of Sonic’s friends? Considering the size of Sonic’s cast, I know it’s hard to get in everyone and I always appreciate what we can get.

Will you be making a Destroy all Humans comics that focuses on crypto and pox?

You mentioned that A reason (not the only one, but A reason) why you’re not discussing any future plans you had for the reboot era of archie was because there was the possibility of you using some of those scrapped plans for IDW, and thus talking about them would technically constitute as IDW spoilers. And that makes perfect sense. Now my question is, whenever you do end up incorporating scrapped reboot plans in IDW, do you plan on mentioning after the fact “Oh yeah and this story event that happened had it’s origins in scrapped reboot plans”? Has there been anything in IDW already that was recycled from scrapped archie plans?

I noticed that in IDW Sonic Issue #11, after Blaze has dropped her Burning form, she says she can’t transform again because the Sol Emeralds’ power has diminished. Later in Issue #12, she plans to use the Sol Emeralds to return home. Do the Sol Emeralds not scatter after use Dragonball-Style like the Chaos Emeralds do, or is that plot element being done away with entirely?

Derek N.
I heard on TVTropes the IDW Sonic comic can’t use the word “Mobius” anymore. Is that just for the planet’s name, or all uses? If it’s the latter, what would happen if the story 100% required Sonic and friends go to Sonic Riders Zero Gravity’s “Mobius Strip” location?

This is a question for Kyle, what music score or song in a video game you think is the best of all time (For me it’s the suicide mission song from mass effect 2)
