I doubt this experiment of Namco will lead to bigger things but we shall see. Since Shiftylook is digging through Namco's forgotten IPs I would like it if they picked up Burning Force, the Baraduke (Alien Sector) games or the Valkyrie games.
EDIT:The full Shiftylook website has arrived and it got a new comic as well, Alien Confidential: Black & White. The other upcoming comic after this will be a Rocket Fox comic.
I guess this means that not all future Namco IP comics will be based on just old games because as far as I know Alien Confidential and Rocket Fox are new games coming to smartphones and tablets.

shiftylook.com/comics/wondermomo/ The first two pages of Shiftylook's Wonder Momo comic are already out online this week. Never cared for WM myself but Omar Dogan is the artist for this one and I'm a fan of his artstyle so I guess I keep an eye out.

Bravoman does have really good animation (and voice work), but I kinda like Mappy, too. Yeah, it's kinda silly, but there's something charming about it. Maybe just because it's Mappy.
I'm not much into web comics, but I should go back and check some of these out more in-depth. ShiftyLook's YouTube channel also has a lot of video interviews with the artists, and a fairly lengthy interview with Rob Paulsen that's pretty cool.

Sadly, it looks like ShiftyLook is being discontinued. According to the latest newsletter, the site will no longer be updated and the forums will be shut down after March 20. The site will go offline on September 30.
The current Wonder Momo anime will continue, and the game (developed by WayForward) is still scheduled for release. At least four of the comics are being compiled into books to be published by Udon.
I'm disappointed to see this come to an end. I didn't really read the comics, but I really liked the animation.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
