Don't forget that he's frequently insulted his former co-workers - Ian Flynn in particular - over on social media to the point where they've had him blocked, and even subtly encouraged his own fanbase to harass them until the blow-up became too big that he had to step in and end the mess he started. He's a real piece of work. It's also a shame that Sonic Brotherhood was retconned from Sonic's proper game canon and never got a sequel since it tied into plot threads set up from Sonic Battle and Sonic Advance 3.
Yeah, thank you for mentioning Penders' jealousy over Ian because I forgot about that. It's the reason Ian cannot say anything for his Lost Hedgehog Tales on what would had happened if the reboot didn't happened. I would like to mention after the legal battles, he tries to talk to the previous writers so he can use their characters in his project. That didn't work. Although, there is another writer that did the same BS Penders did: Scott Fulop (he created Mammoth Mogul and the Fearsome Foursome). That dude is currently trying the same thing Penders doing now, with a website and merchandise.
Yes, Sonic Chronicles was unfortunately never mentioned again after 2008/09, despite how it was tied to not only Sonic Battle and Sonic Advance 3, for the continuation of Emerl/Gemerl's storyline but also tied to the Sonic Adventure games. And since BioWare was bought out by EA in 2010, the sequel plans were scrapped. Poor Shade couldn't be in future games, but I would say this: she's not = to Julie-Su.
