Capcom is apparently doing one of those corporate restructuring things, and that's never good for employees. In particular, it sounds like Capcom USA is being significantly trimmed, including (former) Senior VP Christian Svensson (seemingly at his own suggestion). (Source)
We've all criticized Capcom in recent years for various reasons, but I think it should be noted that most of the good things they've done recently were the result of Capcom USA. They were the ones that got Duck Tales Remastered in the works, brought classic arcade games like Darkstalkers and Dungeons & Dragons to digital distribution, and worked out the licensing nightmare that was Tatsunoko vs. Capcom so it could be released outside of Japan; all because they listened to what fans were asking for. Svensson must've had a difficult job being the target of a lot of angry fanboys, but I think he was very good for Capcom. He (and other Capcom USA staff) should be commended for getting something like Capcom-Unity off the ground to begin with, and establishing an unprecedented dialog directly between the company and its fans.
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.
