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: Nice to see you here Shrikes, and sorry to hear about you having COVID-19. Speaking of Christmas, the holiday mood seems to be a bit better where I work compared to the last few years.

Shrikeswind: Still coughing my lungs up, but yeah, doing a lot better now that it's past tense.

Shrikeswind: Thread should be up tonight. I need to leave for an interview in a little over an hour and I hadn't even slept last night.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
