Here's a documentary about M2. It came out last May, but I only just got around to watching it.
It's fairly comprehensive, and covers everything from their founding to current projects. It was produced by Limited Run Games, and made by the guys from My Life in Gaming. It's really interesting, and well worth watching. (Be sure to turn on captions for the English translation.)
One thing that stood out to me was that they were really impressed by WayForward's Contra 4, so with Contra Rebirth, they aimed to make a game that would rival it.

By only using the accumulation of Pokemon exploits/glitches/bugs found, James Smith/Altaria26 masks away everything about the final Blue battle in Pokemon Red and Blue with a new Oak battle, which may appear indistinguishable to a ROM hack, but is not. The data injected with former glitches without the need of external devices one byte at a time or more, e.g. with 8F, Connection Copier allows this.
As the Lance room script in RAM is altered to an invalid script in RAM, and these invalid "meta-map scripts" persist even after save and reset, this exploit persists even after power off, until either stored Bill's PC data (reread by the program counter filled with bytes representing code, not Pokemon and appear as glitch Pokemon) is altered or the map script is manually disabled with another glitch, or the save battery dies. www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtb69s56kM0
Backstory, recently Sanrio released Sanrio Boys; that men and boys can like Sanrio too and be just as feminine; likewise women can like subjectively: 'boyish' things too. I have a friend born female who always loved things like Kamen Rider and Gundam. On one hand its wonderful, on the other hand some of the original charm is lost. Pokémon too was actually very Ultraman inspired (Capsule Kaijuu in Ultraman), and the Poké Balls; the original pitch was called "Capsule Monsters".
The original Pokémon were not cute, but were like dinosaurs (according to interviews, if the English translations are correct). Covertly, Sanrio too has always been inspired by superheroes with their coordination on Donragon.
Also something for some reason I didn't share. Philosophy of heart vs. mind if anyone likes it.
Shrikeswind: I'm reminded why I don't bother with that. I had the luxury of easy-to-grab screenshots and it still took literal hours to finish that post.

Nester the Lark: Let's not talk about me and sanity.

Shrikeswind: Very well, we shall talk of other things, like shoes and ships and sealing wax, and cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

Shrikeswind: It strikes me that perhaps I should not be mentioned in the same breath as sanity myself.

Boo Destroyer: RuneScape.... I haven't heard that name in a long, long time.

Shrikeswind: I still play. Matter of fact, I'm currently playing. It actually just came out with a new skill this past March, if you can believe it.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

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.
