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.

Nester the Lark: I've had similar thoughts the past several months. What do I really use social media for? I don't interact a whole lot, so for me, it's more about getting content. "Less about the social, more about the media" as I like to put it.

nocturnal YL: On second thought, maybe I should give Bluesky a try. I was actually considering Mastodon as a replacement of X and didn't really think much of Bluesky since posts are viewable by members only, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

Evie ❤✿: I relate with that and Twitter. I started using it and got addicted to scrolling, retweeting things. Nowadays I come back in short waves, or learning about media like you. Unfortunately it's hard to keep track and Musk doesn't like datascraping.

Evie ❤✿: The other reason I use it is to follow art channels I like, specifically to browse cute art.

nocturnal YL: I have got a Bluesky account. I'll consider actually posting later. And I haven't even used X for at least a month. There are a few X users I'm interested in re-following (in a general sense) if they have accounts elsewhere.

nocturnal YL: The problem with being completely sucked into Surge Concerto's world is that I can't actually look them up outside of the game, since everything, including some official media, is spoiler. It's the same issue as BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light.

Evie ❤✿: Cool ^^ Sorry to hear that Hope you have fun with the games until you don't have to avoid the spoilers.

Evie ❤✿: I've been fed up with online editors and software which claims to be free but isn't. -_- I've usually joined an image with audio w/Avidemux which actually is open source. Now I just use FFMPEG to do same for less clicking. I'm satisfied this way though. ^^

Evie ❤✿: I think microblogging sounds nice too. I might try it myself one day. ^^ Twitter/X's character limit is restricting, as is the organisation/discovery of tweets. Don't worry about audience, it isn't important tho if u want one I'm sure will get1 eventually.

Evie ❤✿: Funnily enough there is a recent Hatsune Miku/Pokémon collab called Pokémon feat. Hatsune Miku Project Voltage 18 Types 18 Songs where it imagines if Hatsune Miku was a Pokémon Trainer and what Pokémon she'd use.

Nester the Lark: Sony has announced a State of Play for tomorrow after the Direct. Didn't they do this last September, also? EDIT: Yes, they did.
Sept 13, 2023 16:04:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not a bad Direct. I'll post my impressions later.

Nester the Lark: So, I still don't know if NST had anything to do with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on Switch, but plot twist! They *did* develop F-Zero 99.

nocturnal YL: About a quarter done in Ciel nosurge DX (1/3 story, about 1/5 items). Absolutely love the story, but the gameplay is pretty bad. Wouldn't have liked it at all in its original online, real-time-only form.

Nester the Lark: Apparently, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 won the Award of Excellence at TGS.

nocturnal YL: This is unexpected. His name is almost synonymous with the studio.

nocturnal YL: Surge Concerto (and the overall Ar Tonelico series, from what I know) has deep lore and unfathomable dark stories on top of rather shallow gameplay. It's in some ways a far more extreme version of the BLUE REFLECTION series.
Sept 26, 2023 14:08:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Game design similarities aside, I'm surprised that the same developer behind Atelier can make something like this. Not exactly my cup of tea, but that's an extra layer of appreciation I have for them.
