Sonic and the Black Knight

TimHonestly, if we couldn’t make fun of Sonic, what would we have? A 3.9 on IGN and promise for new Werehog games? Yikes, that’s scary. On another note, while I always hope our comics are funny to most people that read them, I do realize that some comics are a little more niche than others. For that reason, sometimes a little perspective might be in order.

RayAs a long-time Sonic fan, “Sonic and the Black Knight” simply hurts to even look at. At this point, I’m almost ashamed to say I even recognize the guy.

    Very nice, boys. Very nice.

  2. billtodamax says:

    Nice work on the comic guys.

  3. RedVinnie says:

    thats hilarious. ray, i think you need to look at my review. i mean, youre trusting ign, someone who never completed sonic unleashed over a loyal? its in the wii section ray.

  4. GX Echidna says:

    Wow! In hindsight, it’s the most obvious joke that no one has made yet!

    But, more to the point, I definitely feel for you, man. Bringing back the werehog is a moronic idea. Why Sega is choosing to do so is beyond me, other than the possibility that they no longer have any other ideas on how to pad out a Sonic game.
    As for Matt’s IGN review, well, it’s disappointing, crushingly so, but I’m not going to take a single review as law. I’m personally waiting to see how other sites respond before I think of it as a critical success or failure.

    *Casually gets out of seat and flings his jacket over his shoulder so it’s now hanging over his right hand’s index finger. Then flicks out the toothpick he kept in his mouth and turns his head back so his right eye is just barely facing Tim and Ray- “Late to the party again boys; old joke is old.*

    Also have you read review, I’ve read papers from first graders more detailed then Matt’s review of the game. I actually think he gets some sort of sick pleasure from demonizing Sonic. He likes it lower and lower…

    Being the over dedicated Sonic fan I am though, despite how much I wanna save the money for something else, I’ll probably pick up the game today…

  6. Haniko says:

    xD It seems so obvious after you read it, but it’s hilarious either way. NCG

    And might I add, did I detect a little self-hate on the Black Doom Awards from Ray when he was introducing it? You did also seem a lil emo in the number munchers comic. D=

    Ray, we all love you and are here to support you.

  7. JD Fedule says:

    I am proud to be in on this joke. I got the Monty Python reference too. Ooh, burn. I’m going to continue to like Sonic, pretend this game doesn’t exist, and hold out that the next big Sonic game will be more like Unleashed’s day stages with the Werehog appearing as a spiritual sequel if at all (eg: Sonic and Knuckles, with Knuckles playing similarly to the Werehog. Or something. I’unno.).

    PS: Grave = risen from. Reader since #10. Obligatory (though no less serious) NCG.

  8. Supersonic24 says:

    Gah! Everyone misinterprets this, he said if there is an Unleashed 2, the Werehog will return. He’s the special thing exclusive to that game. How many Sonic games had sequels? The originals, Sonic Adventure, Sonic Advance, Sonic Drift, and Sonic Riders. Not that many considering how many he’s been in. I doubt there will be an Unleashed 2.

  9. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Nice Comic Guys! The joke was really clever, and makes me want to go watch Monty Python again. 😀

  10. fierce diety says:

    nice one. i cant believe sonic still has fans
    havent seen monty python in years

  11. roadjcat says:

    You win…well…I don’t know what you win, but it should be something awesome. 😀 For some reason I thought it would have something to do with the Black Knight from Fire Emblem, but when it didn’t I can’t say I was disappointed. SSCG (Super Spiffy Comic Guys)!

  12. Matthew says:

    Anyone that needs “perspective” to understand this joke is an uneducated fool.

  13. tustin says:

    YAY FOR MONTY PYTHON!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

    Beautiful, I hadn’t even thought of this guy! BEAUTIFUL!

    Any by the comments above me, I guess I missed something in the SatBK realm…

  14. Rokai says:

    Best comic ever.

  15. BadnikHunter says:

    Haha NCG guys, though Black Knight actually looks to be shaping up pretty good in the latest trailers.

  16. Betta splenden says:

    I didn’t get it at first, and after watching the Youtube video, I still didn’t find it that funny. The art must have taken a really long time to do though. The swords and all the armour, lpus the lighting effects. It’s an okay comic. You really have to know about the Monty Python thing though…

  17. Kvb says:

    Once again I am left out of the loop for not seeing Monthy Python..

  18. ultimateDK says:

    To be honest, this is the first comic of all your comics that I “meh”-ed at. Sorry, this joke is waaay past old for me. It’s like the first thing I thought of when I heard the name.

    That being said this comic has one of my absolute favorite panels in all your comics. I absolutely love the drawing of Sonic’s sneakers in the first panel. That’s it, I have to…I’m calling for a wallpaper of the first panel without the word balloon. The pic is just so…epic.

    Anyway, here’s looking to next week! 🙂

  19. TomX says:

    As soon as I saw an add for this game on the back of a magazine, I knew it wouldn’t be long before you guys made a comic about it. *Thumbs up*

  20. TomX says:

    Lol only one ‘d’ in ad, oops.

  21. Kvb says:

    Oh, and also…
    Judging by the links Tim gave us in the Author’s Comment, the next podcast is going to be SPECTACULAR!
    Sucks that Sonic has to break your heart time and time again, Ray, but the Black Doom Awards that follow it are always absolutely delicious!

  22. Phos says:

    Perhaps it would have been funnier if you had the Black Knight from the game in the same predicament as the Monty Python black knight.

    And yeah, SatBK is in some ways worse than ’06. With 06, they were at least trying to make a game, but they weren’t given enough time and didn’t know what they were doing. With SatBK, they knew -exactly- what they were doing and did it anyway.

  23. Mkava says:

    Sonic who…? What? Sorry, the name doesn’t ring any bells.
    Alright, fine, here’s two bucks, get yourself some booze; just leave me alone. *walks away at a brisk pace and grumbles*
    *Camera pans over to reveal that the begging hobo is actually Sonic the What-cha-mc-call-it.*

    If I could, I’d nominate this for comment of the week. 🙂
    And yeah, that’s what it feels like with any of the new Sonic games, besides the 360 version of Unleashed that is. :/

    I’m curious if this game is even selling? I love Sonic, not nearly as much as Ray or some folks here, but I just can’t watch anymore. He’s been in waaay too many mediocre games. 😐

  24. Sora WTK says:

    lol nice comic.

    I have Sonic and the Black Knight (Got it today and have been playing it), and despite its flaws it’s WAY better than what IGN says.

    I still say people exaggerate over Sonic’s situation. It’s like everyone who makes fun of/criticize him just can’t let go of the Sonic Next-Gen disaster.

  25. shigamado says:

    Hey guys, sorry I don’t know where to exactly post for “Wise fwum your guave” but I’ve been a long time reader and have been listening to the podcasts for the last two months.

    I like your guys style, and Ray has the same tastes in games I do. (I’m also a Sonic fan.)

    That said, I gotta say this weeks comic is a bit on the weak side. That Black Knight joke’s been done to death. It would have behooved you to wait ’till next week when you had a better idea of what the game is like.

    Speaking of, Ray, Tim, I beseech you to please make another comic to rip into Matt ‘Assamesina. His review of SATBK is nothing short of a horrible joke. As someone who’s currently playing the game, I can tell you it’s nowhere near a 3.9. It’s decent. Around a 6.5 – 7.5. IGN’s journalistic integrity is an absolute joke. If this game had anyone other than Sonic in it, it would have received a 6.9 or higher from them.

  26. geekyninja says:

    Awesome comic guys! A little dark visually, but the comic’s about the joke in the text less than the visuals this week. Any Monty Python humor is appreciated, and somehow I didn’t realize the whole Black Knight thing until now.

  27. steve-ohs says:

    Woohoo Monty Python is awesome!
    This comc has Monty Python
    Therefore this comic is awesome!

  28. Tacos says:

    Hahahaha, never made that connection before. Very nice

  29. BulimicKoala says:

    First Shadow gets a gun and now Sonic gets a sword. SONIC TEAM HAS TO STOP GIVING ANIMALS WEAPONS. Why does god hate hedgehogs. Also nice Monty Python reference.

  30. cramill says:

    Good comic guys!

    I don’t know why many people are saying “I never made the connection of Black Knight to Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail before.” It might just be me, but whenever I hear “Black Knight” I always think of that scene from that movie. Good times.

  31. stickyfeet says:

    This comic is simply made of win. <3 You guys rock. =D

  32. D3vin says:

    Hahahaha, never made that connection before. Very nice

    I did from day one, FINALLY somebody made that connection and made a joke on it

  33. deannnnnnnn says:

    great comment really funny, nice work guys
    ps im rising from my grave.
    I have been an avid fan, i have been a fan for 19 full hours!
    and i have already went back read all the comments, and listened to all the podcast.

  34. deannnnnnnn says:

    ps i have actually been a fan for around 14 months

  35. GMaster7 says:

    Hey Tim & Ray – I’ve been following the site since sometime two years ago, but I’ve never felt the time was right to say hello. With the addition of the “Rise From Your Grave” segment (great Altered Beast reference, by the way), I decided that the time was finally right. You guys do a lot of great work, and the comics make me laugh every week. Still, I have to say that the podcasts are my favorite part of the site; when you guys get going, I have to laugh out loud right along with you. It makes for some uncomfortable bus rides.

    Keep up the good work, and keep doing what you do best. The site has come a long way, and so has your readership. I think that we’ve all enjoyed watching 2P Start grow in popularity, and whenever we see you in the Joystiq Webcomic Wrap-Up, I think we regular readers feel a bit proud. I’ll keep reading and showing your comics to friends, and I’ll try to comment a bit more, now that I’m in the fold. Good luck with the comic, and thanks for the laughs!

    Everyday day, hundreds of inner city woodland creatures are hospitalized or killed due to weapon violence. With lax weapon laws for mutant animals and no mandatory sword registration, any green raccoon or magenta groundhog can easily walk into a weapons dealer and walk out with shurikins or an Omochao Gun.

    Ladies and gentlemen, please vote yes for arms restrictions on animals, and do your part to help stop the violence.

  38. GX Echidna says:

    Hello, friends. This is Black Doom, and I want to speak to you tonight about woodland creatures and their constitutional rights. Certain groups have been decrying the current animal arms laws, complaining that they are too “lax” and demanding greater restrictions. In these times, we must remember those rights given to us by this nation’s foreferrets and cherish them. If we allow these special interest groups to prevent animals from obtaining weapons, what will stop them from taking away the right to poorly written dialog or the right to include bad vocal music? I don’t want to live in a zone where we no longer have these freedoms. Do you?

    Please vote no for arms restrictions on animals, and do your part to help protect your freedoms.

    Woohoo Monty Python is awesome!
    This comc has Monty Python
    Therefore this comic is awesome!

    yes monty python is pretty cool. But this comic far surpasses the comedic genius of monty python. After the internet replaces tv, and movies people would preach about how funny, and awesome Ray and Tim are/were. 2P Start=Pure gold

  43. Ness says:

    I think Sonic should ditch the sword and use a holy hand grenade. NCG I’ve been a fan since comic 54, but I immediatley read 1-53 so basically I’ve been a fan since the beginning. Keep up the good work on the site and podcast!

  44. I think that Monty Python has become so popular that everyone gets the joke even if they haven’t seen the movie. I could be wrong, though.

    Its a good thing you two are funny or I might have to bite your legs off…NCG can’t wait for the podcast to see you tear another hold in the pointy headed freak

  47. MasterXell says:

    I havent posted a comment for the past few weeks. But today’s comic slapped me and said “Damn it Tim, make a comment” so here I am commenting.

    Great strip, I think this is my favorite strip of any Webcomic. I am a huge Python fan, and just seeing the Black Knight, and his limbless body, it just makes everything so damn perfect.

  48. CKcheeseboy says:

    Good comic guys!
    I don’t know why many people are saying “I never made the connection of Black Knight to Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail before.” It might just be me, but whenever I hear “Black Knight” I always think of that scene from that movie. Good times.

    Well, whenever I hear it, I think of something like this.

    Also, an alternate ending.

  49. FluffyPanda says:

    So is Sonic’s annoying helper in this game Spunky the European Unladen Swallow?

    With the addition of the “Rise From Your Grave” segment (great Altered Beast reference, by the way)

    Every time I hear that sample it brings me crashing back to the disappointment of getting that game on the Genesis (or Megadrive, as it was called over here). Man that was a bad game.

  50. DanGale says:

    That is brilliant! I don’t think a webcomic has ever made me laugh out loud. Well done guys.

  51. Anon says:

    I’ve played the game for a few hours yesterday, (gonna probably complete it today) and it’s not a 3.9.
    That is not to say it’s an excellent game. It’s still fast, but not as fast as unleashed (on the Wii for reference) and the controls need a little tightening, though most of the stages are pretty narrow and there is some sort of auto turn on the harder ones I’ve encountered.
    This is a decent game, maybe a 6.5 ish.
    My main complaint is it’s level design. It’s bland and after some of the levels in Unleashed, it’s a let down to see the levels work around the gimmick instead of the levels assisting the gimmick.

  52. Matteron says:

    hahaha ncg i remember when i first saw that movie…hahahahahahahahahaha XD

    I have to agree. I played this for about an 1 and 1/2 hrs yesterday and you know what, I was pleasantly surprised. TBH, i was kinda glad they slowed it down, cause while unleashed was a fun experience (on 360 only), I don’t always want break-neck speeds. And forget Twilight Princess, Sonic uses the sword better in this game than Link does in his.

    By and far, my favorite part of the game, though, is the music. It’s not the typical Sonic music (fitting for a not-so-typical Sonic game) and despite the fact that we laughed at it having a “Celtic” theme (you know who you are…..Ray! lol) it’s an enjoyable piece of work.

    Bottom line: SatBK –> 7.0

  55. ultimateDK says:

    Addendum to ^

    This is an opinion, not a review. After the whole “who reviews the reviewers?” thing, I don’t wanna start anything lol. Just my first impressions of playing the game.

  56. soonerjudd says:

    Ah, Monty Python, one of the greatest movies known to man. Great work making that connection.

  57. zijjh says:

    I don’t have time to read every comment so I will just say O_O WOW that’s a lot.

    Anyways love the comic, great reference. I think the joke still holds well even for those who don’t get the Monty Python reference.

  58. StinkyCheese says:

    love the logo. Poor limbless Ray..

    Oh yes…the music, its…orgasmic! YESH!

    I really love the remixes of the old themes, like the Blacksmith’s shop…

  60. racefreak265 says:

    Well, i guess its time for me to “Rise from my grave.” I’ve been a fan of this site since comic #64, and i quickly looked at the rest. The comics are almost always a good laugh, even jokes that I dont get. Keep up the good work!

    To the comic-
    Nice Mighty Python reference! But i dont get what people mean by “this joke is old”? Anyways, I cant believe the IGN rating for the game, because I read Nintendo power, and they gave the game an 8, so i dont know what the deal is there. NCG!

    I watched a live stream of someone going through the whole game. I am angered by this game’s existence.

    FLAWED COMIC

    Sonic shouldn’t have the lightspeed dash shoe add-on from SA2B! This is a big deal.

    I just completed Black Knight.

    Ray, try it out. Trust me, it’s not as bad as you’d think. Plus, I’d like to see your review.

  66. Jonny683 says:

    I LOVE THIS PART!!!

    “I’ll bite your bloody leg off”

  67. Jonkind says:

    I had to say – I like the comic a lot, great stuff.

    As for the Black Knight, wouldn’t it be great if HE was the new Sonic sidekick in the game, like Knuckles or Chip? He could spout lines like “HAVE AT THEE!” or “I’ll bite your legs off!” when he and Sonic come upon an enemy. Surely the Black Knight could perform a spin dash.

    XD I LOVE the “Have at thee!” line idea. Would be the most annoying companion of all time. Possibly even Omochao!

    Ehhh… no. Nothing beats Omochao in that field…
    “Hi! I’m Omochao! I’m here to help you!”
    “Hi, I’m Sonic! I’m here to destroy you!”

    Oh, I read “Dub”. I hear dubs are bad. Therefore, you’re not getting my vote.

    Please, I think we all know that Rouge has the most experience with politics.

    My god, the political process is becoming ever more rapid! We’ve only had our President of Gaming since November, and we’re already talking about the next candidates!
    Hmm…Perhaps the length of a term is defined by the release of Sonic games.

    Yes, too bad “Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics” is coming out…. My run wouldn’t be THAT long…
    Give me another term!
    FOUR MORE MONTHS!
    FOUR MORE MONTHS!
    FOUR MORE MONTHS!
    FOUR MORE MONTHS!
    *continues chanting*

    FOUR MORE MONTHS!
    FOUR MORE MONTHS!
    FOUR MORE MONTHS!!!

    And I fully expect the quotes in this comment to be broken somewhat. >_>

  81. Jordan the Hedgehog says:

    Or not.

    Now that the nation has fallen on hard times, we need a powerful man, and an optimist to lead us. Someone experienced in outracing the pack. Someone who can stimulate the economy like a knee to the gut, and punch us back into action. We need Captain Falcon.

    I think that we should all have a fundraiser to help raise money to buy Ray some new limbs! Who’s with me?!

    I’m with it, Because as the quote probably goes…

    the enemy of my enemy is my friend

    or something like that…

    Let’s stop the off-topic comments, we have a forum for that.

  85. RedVinnie says:

    you know, i know you guys were trying to make a monty python reference, but do ya think you could have gotten the black knight’s actual drawing done? i would have loved that. I too have completed SatBK storywise, and I thought it was great. Ray, you need to play this.

  86. Ryman says:

    Sonic’s been in so many bad games, nobody is going to even look at the good one if it ever comes out. (Poor Sonic Rush and Sonic Chronicles. I admit though, SC was not what it could of been, but it was better then the recent stuff Sega has been barfin’ up.)

    Oh, and vote for Ryman. He has a PS3 and -enjoys- it.
    And he’s hispanic. RACE CARD FTW!

    Wow I leave my comment and check back in a few days to make sure no one’s replyed to me and during that short period of time, the comment board has errupted in political fillibustering and all other sorts of wacky nonsense in no way related to the comic…. God I love the internet

  88. Jimbo says:

    How can the Black Night be EVIL without arms? Im a fan too, but the black knight game is disappointing. (First)

  89. Atomsk says:

    gotta love Monty Python

  90. aeryn says:

    yay black knight! i actually didn’t know they were doing a black knight game, so i got the monty python half but not the sonic… (yay wikipedia)

    i was just talking about the MP black knight earlier today, in an anecdote of being able to show the clip during a book presentation on Le Morte d’Arthur in my AP Literature class. it was beautiful.

  91. Tim says:

    Gadoink,
    Wow! Looks like he beat us to it. The comments left on that page predate our comic by a month.

  92. chriskatching says:

    !! Haha great movie MP:THG 😛

  93. Mirby says:

    COME BACK HERE! I’LL BITE YOUR ANKLES OFF!

    Yeah, the game was crappy. But look on the bright side. It was better than Sonic and the Secret Rings.
