Someone on SNN gave me some questions that got me thinking.
  • What is Opa-Opa's biology? Is he a mechanical lifeform like a Cybertronian? Is he like the vehicles from Pixar' Cars? Could he have organic tissue underneith his artificial-like exterior?
  • What exactly is the "Fantasy Zone"? Is it an area of a galaxy different from the rest of space? Does consciousness of various lifeforms effect the Fantasy Zone (as in "fantasy" coming to life)? Is it part of the "Special Zone"?

1. Opa Opa is a sentient life form
He’s an alien but he’s mechanical
So he’s like transformers

2. Fantasy Zone is it’s own dimension
It is home to Harrier

How long is a space year? Alien maths may have nothing to do with regular maths.

Also friend of mine asks...
  • Which planet does Opa-Opa and his family specifically live on?
  • And so are they manufactured?

Had no clue too about the difference between that year and our year.

No planet ever mentioned other than Planet Harriers and Planet Menon, but that's not where they lived.
Their planets were just always refered as "homeland".

I don't think they're manufactured.
They could have babies that look like these ...



Also there are children too..
The ending for Fantasy Zone Gear features several Opa-Opas (Opa-Opa’s children?) rescuing Opa Jr :



which means their body could grow up, and we know how big O-papa is in the first game's final battle.

I'll pass on the answers to him. But never really thought about the biology and settings of Fantasy Zone this much.

Sega and Yoko Taro’s 404 Game Re:set reimagines Sega games as women









https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuBoiCUfjho

Quote
THE MOBILE GAME HAS PLAYERS BATTLING SEGA TO RESTORE A WORLD IT CORRUPTED.

Yoko Taro, who serves as the game’s creative director, said: “It’s a game that features Sega’s IP, so I thought Sega should be in the game, but I didn’t think Sega would want to see a game that portrayed it well, so I portrayed it negatively.
“It’s a world that imagines that if things were to go well for Sega but then got out of control, it could end up like this.”

404 Game RE:SET Gameplay Involves Purifying Sega Games



Quote
A new interview from Sega shed a bit more light on the concepts and characters that animate 404 Game RE:SET gameplay.
The “Dark” side Cathode personalities emerged as a result of Sega’s actions, which is why Sega is portrayed as the antagonist faction of 404 Game RE:SET.
The members of the cast are initially “Cathodized” by Sega, and use their powers to adversely affect the world around them.
For example, Outrun Type: Cathode runs wild throughout the cities, taking joy in her speed heedless of the dangers she poses to innocents.

As of January 1 2024, Steam will officially stop supporting the Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.







Quote
After that date, the Steam Client will no longer run on those versions of Windows.
In order to continue running Steam and any games or other products purchased through Steam, users will need to update to a more recent version of Windows.
This change is required as core features in Steam rely on an embedded version of Google Chrome, which no longer functions on older versions of Windows.
In addition, future versions of Steam will require Windows feature and security updates only present in Windows 10 and above.
