If you're having doubts about liking a character just because Screwattack said something bad (and in my opinion, pretty biased and disturbing. I've seen the video as well) about her, then you have an issue of your own. Don't let your own opinion be influenced by some punk on the internet (except for me, I want you to take my words at heart). Think for thyself. Rouge often gets labeled for being a slut (a spy apparently shouldn't wear a skintight bodysuit. Unless you're Solid Snake I guess. Then you can have as many buttocks shots as you want. But no, with Rouge, it's just plain wrong), a whore (mostly because of her shippings with Knuckles or Shadow, which were probably created by the same fans who declared her a whore in the first place), and a flirt (because posing and blowing kisses on the beat of saxophone is innapropriate in a video game, unless you're...well, every femme fatale in every video game ever created).
Who gives a damn whether she's a bat with a hourglass figure? It's not like they pasted an actual bat's face on her (thank the gods that they didn't)
So what if using guns isn't Sonic's style? This is Shadow, not Sonic. They have no more reason to hate it than Sonic Adventure for Gamma shooting missiles. Tails's game had him use bombs as his main weapons. And you can still use homing attacks, the guns are just more powerful and useful for dealing with stronger enemies. I didn't care for some of the levels but many were enjoyable and the final boss is always fun to fight. Also it explains the rest of Shadow's backstory. And you get the Chaos Emeralds by beating the levels instead of special stages, that damn THIRD Chaos Emerald in Sonic Heroes took me forever to get. (there I referenced a popular quote from that game, where Shadow says "Where's that damn FOURTH Chaos Emerald?") But Shadow the Hedgehog is probably my second favorite game next to Sonic Adventure. (Sonic the Hedgehog 2 being third, honorable mention goes to Sonic Rush, Sonic Generations, and Sonic Riders)
I can agree....
But I don't see why you post this. Isn't this talk supposed to be humorous?
