Grant me, I knew literally all of that he had been laid off, and seemed rather unaware of what went wrong based on the bullet points. I was not aware of anything more, like how Sega shut down Sega San-Fran, since I've been a bit out of the loop of late. It still strikes me that he may be a difficult sell in the future, though, for the same reasons that I, in my ignorance, assumed Sega may have laid him off for.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice announced for 3DS, developed by Sanzaru.
Well... I certainly didn't expect this to continue. The cartoon is good (although I haven't been watching), but the previous games flopped and the comic was already cancelled. I'm still waiting for the next real Sonic game, but I doubt it'll come to Wii U at this point.
Oh well. I think Rodea: The Sky Soldier and Freedom Planet will fill in for Sonic just fine at this point.

Notice they mentioned "New playable character: Amy." This isn't a sequel to Rise of Lyric, it's for Shattered Crystal, which was apparently not as...let's just say "sub-par"...as Rise of Lyric (an admittedly low metric.) This is almost certainly going to be another flop (reputation of the Boom brand may screw it over even if it's a better game than its predecessors,) but I'll be keeping my eye out anyways. If nothing else, it should make for some good comedy.
I figured they'd probably do another one. Sonic Boom as a franchise is actually doing surprisingly well for some reason. I assume it's mostly just on the strength of the show. As far as I can tell nobody knows exactly why the comics were cancelled. Ian Flynn, the guy in charge of Archie Sonic said it wasn't down to sales, and that the sales figures were fine.
EDIT: Found the exact quote from him about it.
I can't get into things, so this is all I'm saying on the matter: - it was not because of sales. Boom was doing just fine. - it was not because of SEGA.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
