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: 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.
