Rock-paper-scissors combat system is still a norm in card games,
so I won't mind if it's still being used.
And Red Star Rings, if SEGA HARDLight is the one who made the game,
guaranteed for sure they'll use them.

Leak does said that SEGA is making Chao mobile game.
It's just still unknown who develop it,
SEGA HARDLight or SOJ Internal Team.
I'm hoping the game will be like Pokémon Go! or Wizards Unite. Both games published by Niantic who probably provide the satnav program to these games.
I love the idea of "Chao Adventure 3" being a lot like Chao Adventure but instead of an auto-scrolling game you have to go out and actually walk around outside in order for your chao to encounter events. It would also be cool if Chao Adventure can have up to  two or three chao though I suppose just concentrating on the one chao is fine.
It's also happened quite often wasn't it when side characters become more popular than the main character?



Bugs Bunny is more popular than Porky Pig.
Taz-mania was more popular than Bugs Bunny from some times.
Wolverine and Deadpool are more popular than Cyclops.
Darkseid is more popular than Mr Miracle.
Minions are more popular than Gru.
Woody Woodpecker is more popular than Andy Panda.
Yogi bear is more popular than Huckleberry Hound.
Constantine is more popular than Swamp Thing.

But in term of video games, yes Rabbids & Rayman is the most ironic case.
I wonder how Rayman feels being outshined by Rabbids?

I'm glad Sonic made it into Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 but I still think the position should of been for Dr. Eggman on account his skills with Mean Bean Machines.

Happy Lunar New Year ! - From Sonic Team, Atlus, and SEGA Arcade Team



Quote
Happy Lunar New Year!🥳🥳

Check out this illustration of Sonic by Sonic Team!🐯🦔
We hope you stick around with us this year and continue to support Sonic.🥰

We wish you a year full of fun and happiness in the Year of the Tiger 🐯
Big love and thanks for your continued support of Atlus games and Facebook official page!

Happy Lunar New Year!

This is Koha-D, the Representative of SEGA Arcade Music Game Team.
As the New Year has begun, I'd like to wish you a happy lunar new year and comment on two SEGA music games.

🔸 maimai DX International ver.

It’s been 2 years since the maimai DX International ver. started operation, which new version (UNiVERSE) released on January 27. Despite the fact that there are times and areas where stores cannot operate due to the effects of COVID 19, we have been able to achieve a high operation rate, thanks to everyone's enthusiasm.
Thank you very much for your support!
For various reasons, the music, collaborations, and several others have been delayed from the Japanese version, but we are still thinking of some surprises for you, so we would be grateful for your continued support.

🔸 CHUNITHM International ver.

Since CHUNITHM started its operation from the end of 2020, we've received a lot of feedback and we've changed our plans drastically from the original plan, adding songs at a rapid pace to bring it closer to the Japanese version.
Thank you for your support here as well as in maimai DX!
We are now in the final adjustment stage of the version-up to "NEW", which we reported at the end of last year, and we are preparing to provide it with some plans to activate the local player’s community.
For a variety of reasons, it is going to be difficult to make it exactly the same as the Japanese version, but we are working with the people in charge to make it as pleasing to everyone as possible.
We will be making an announcement on the specifics soon, so please look forward to it!

🔹 Lastly, due to the impact of COVID19, it has been difficult to enjoy arcade music games in both Japan and overseas.
I can only express my gratitude to all of you who continue to play our games even under such circumstances.
In order to respond to such enthusiasm, we, the development team, will continue to do our best to provide the best service possible. We would be grateful for your continued support.

We hope you'll continue enjoy maimai DX and CHUNITHM in 2022!

Koha-D / The Representative of SEGA Arcade Music Game Team / February 1, 2022

If it plays like a Pokemon Go then I probably will skip the game.
I don't want to be forced to walk outside to find Chao during this pandemic years.
Covid-19 rate in my country is really high right now.

I wonder how Rayman feels being outshined by Rabbids?

He's a good guy, I think he's gonna chill with it..

I'm glad Sonic made it into Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 but I still think the position should of been for Dr. Eggman on account his skills with Mean Bean Machines.

I was hoping Eggman at least show up as secret boss in PPT2, but considering Sonic didn't have his own story in PPT2 I guess that's really too much asking.

Oh right, I forgot COVID pretty much killed the AR satnav market. The height of Pokémon Go would of probably lasted longer if it were not for quarantine. I mean people still play it just outdoor social video games took a dive when we were encouraged to be morlocks.

Indeed... These two Pokémon Go-like games were hit hard too when pandemic wave comes ....

I hope satnav AR games would recover. These games were ideal to encourage the average couch-potato gamer to actually get out for some fresh air and walking for a change.

Didn't know that was a thing.

Okay, so I have a rough idea of how NFTs work and I think he does as well if he plans on profiting from NFTs over buying them which most first-time NFT buyers make the mistake on understanding the value of NFTs and ownership of art and media attached to them.

To sum it up, you don't own the artwork assosiated with the NFT. You're not buying the artwork, you're buying the Non-Fungible Token.

Imagine a blockchain like an assembly hall filled with chairs with various pictures stuck to them (most of those pictures being ugly apes). An NFT is the right to sit on one of these chairs. You don't own the chair because it's digital, you don't own the picture or media attached to it because that's purely to differate it (therefore you cna use stolen artwork to sell NFTs but given it's not the artwork for sale but the NFTs means such loophole can be exploited. I wouldn't be surprise if Penders is using old Archie Sonic comic pictures).
That's why those ugly apes are assossiated with NFTs. Those ape pictures were made with a random generator and used solely to assossiate with specific NFTs.

There are those who buy NFTs because they foolishly believe they're buying the rights and ownership of the picture attached to them. They are not.
There are those who buy NFTs because depending on where the chair is set in the assembly hall (like chair #1 being more valuble than chair #2) makes them feel more privilege. Or buying more NFTs make them feel even more privileged.

In truth, NFTs are just digital recipts for something as useless as a virtual chair. NFTs are as valuble as the seller makes them out to be.

So in short, Penders is getting scammed here, it's likely he knows how NFTs work and is trying to get in on the scam himself.

May be he just jump in because NFT has money potential.
Just a potential of course,
I'm not sure there will be Sonic fans who's ready to throw $100 just for that.
If he's dragged back into court because of his NFTs,
he'd probably love that.
It gave him another chance to show that he is the true owner.

I’ve long been a fan of Sonic kid’s books, even when I was well past the age of being a kid.
The past few years have seen some excellent short story collections set in the game universe, and with the new Sonic movies from Paramount there are even more Sonic books to collect!
Now available for pre-order are ....

NFTs do have money potential, thing is though it's still a scam. It's the equivilent of The Emperor's New Clothes. The conmen/tailours convinced the king that the clothes are made of some special fabric and the king is too embarrased to admit (or stupid to realise) there is nothing there. So he spends a lot of money on something he was told was super-valuble when really it was nothing.

Ken Penders just wants to scam us.

I loved this project! It's proof to me Ryan Drummond and the rest of the dreamcast-era voice actors still have it and I still prefer them over who we have now.
