The assumption that "without Mario, there would be no Sonic" is just about as true as "without Superman, there would be no Captain Marvel"
Just a rival mascot character. Their entire concepts are different and the order they were created could have been switched without needing major alterations to history.
As for the purposes of the discussion, the Sonic franchise has been a disaster, while the Mario franchise has been pretty stable. However, there's one thing that makes the Sonic games stand against the Mario games: character development.
Mario seems to have no character development at all and rather shallow, just save the princess, be the hero, maybe feel sorry for the villain if they meant well. If there's character development or depth in a Mario game, it ironically, tends to be the villains, like in Paper Mario. On the other hand, both sides have character development and/or deeper characters in Sonic games. So while the Mario franchise is better as a game, the Sonic franchise is better as a story. And the topic is clash of characters, not games, so I'm going with Sonic.

So early in the game, when my pokemon were still low level, I once lost both pokemon in a wild double battle on the same turn. When I tried to switch to new pokemon, I could select one, but after selecting that one, I could only keep selecting that one, selecting others gave a "[name] cannot be switched out!" message. Is there any way to get out of this?Posted in: Pokémon Black & White

I understand greedy corporations and their false copyright claims, but how would copyright affect home videos (IE the cup game)?Posted in: General Chat

They should ban more books, because as long as the public doesn't know different viewpoints, it'll be much easier to use propaganda and for politicians to win votes. Just compare the public's opinion of World War 2 with Vietnam. Why should people become educated, understanding individuals when they could just be lemmings for your use? More sheep there are, easier they are to herd. [/sarcasm]Posted in: General Chat

Also, I found my own little solution by setting an encryption password but I want to know the technical aspect of the problem.
EDIT: I think all computers use rotating IPs, I set a static IP on the Windows so I could port forward it.

This still probably regards to what you're talking about.
The router has an IP of ---.---.0.1, and the computers that connect to it use an IP of ---.---.0.2 through ---.---.0.51
The computer I'm using was using the IP of ---.---.0.2, but then my internet failed and I reconnected, I logged into the router and checked Attached Devices. This computer was now using an IP of ---.---.0.4 and my sister's computer was using the ---.---.0.2 IP.
I don't have complete knowledge of networks and stuff so I might have been using the wrong terminology in the first post.

I mean the IP individual computers use to connect to a network, not the router's IP.Posted in: Computer Hardware, Software, and Help

So I'm browsing the internet, as usual, and then my internets starts to get slower, and then the "you are not connected to the internet" error page comes up. All it takes is reconnecting to the network to get back to full speed. After this happened several times, I logged onto my router after reconnecting, and I check attached devices, and then I see my sister's laptop is using the IP I was using.Posted in: Computer Hardware, Software, and Help
Does anyone know why this happens?
Note the computer I'm using is a mac that uses a rotating IP, my sister uses a Macbook with a rotating IP, and the PC that has a set IP isn't affected ever.
