I'm planning on getting it day 1. Been playing the demo on and off. I'm not a pro or anything at the game though, in fact I'm bad at both Puyo and Tetris. I'm looking forward to playing endless mode so I can practice building chains. It is hard to think things through when competing against a computer and not really sure what you are doing.

I pre-ordered the Switch version but I still don't have the system yet (still saving up).
So I wouldn't have been able to play it for some uncertain time.

The demo seems to be really fun from what i heard. What im liking a lot after seeing some footage is how many options, features and modes there are.

Yes, there is a lot of modes.

Starting playing adventure mode made me realize I need to master t-spins if i want to get 3 stars on even the early challenges. so I'm playing big bang mode right now a lot to try and practice t-spins. it seems like t-spins are easier with some blocks and harder with others

SEGA Heroes was a great success,
$7 million from 4.1 million installs in sixteen months


(https://s12.directupload.net/images/200915/n7j3rmb5.jpg)

Quote
Next to Sonic Dash, Sega Heroes' puzzle RPG quest adventure seemed to be the closest the brand has gone to embracing the traditional mobile structure.
$7 million from 4.1 million installs in sixteen months was a great success,
yet the ending of its partnership with Demiurge stopped the game in its tracks much earlier than anticipated.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHOWToD7wuE

Quote
"The production was around eight months in total, so relatively short.
We already had the heart of the game design, concept art, and a tech demo which reduced risk and helped us to hit the ground running.
The core team was made up of approximately 15 people however we pulled in additional support to help out with UI and art, which made the team almost double in size at the peak of production."

Apple Arcade gave us an opportunity to release two titles on a new service at launch, which is something we'd never done before.
We're really happy with the success of both games (ChuChu Rocket Universe and Sonic Racing for Apple Arcade).
It won't be a surprise for you to learn that Sonic has outperformed ChuChu Rocket - the movie definitely helped with our marketing!

SEGA GBA games totally worth playing : ChuChu Rocket!

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/chuchurocketgba.jpg)

Quote
Even though its on a smart cartridge, doesn’t mean this game has less content than its Dreamcast big brother.
This game actually features the 150 puzzles found in the original game. 
Not only that, it had 2,500 user submitted puzzle levels from the online service.
The level editor included allowed users to make 4 player puzzles and of course allowed users to play the game with up to 3 more Gameboys.
Pretty damn solid release for a GBA port!

SEGA Game Gear Micro Hardware Review – Bite-Sized Nostalgia

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/GGM-Black.jpg)

Quote
The original BLACK is the most plain yet iconic of the four and the included games reflect that classic feel. Included are Sonic The Hedgehog, Puyo Puyo 2, OutRun and Royal Stone.
The game selection covers a variety of genres and represent some of the handheld’s best titles. These games are also the most english-friendly, with only the RPG Royal Stone presenting a language barrier. 
If one was only interested in importing one Game Gear Micro, I would say black is the way to go. Solid game selection and an iconic color.

Trivia : Tetris Creator Alexey Pajitnov said Puyo Puyo is "the only game" that could possibly be paired with Tetris.

(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-4il4v2UGqG0/VfTL74Eh1FI/AAAAAAAAAJQ/fUJFsaCKYpw/s1600/Pajutnov.jpg)

Quote
Pajitnov even reflected on how he created the puzzle mode in the original Puyo Puyo game:
"I designed the puzzle mode—the small tasks, like when you need to clear the field in a couple of moves or something like that. But it was so long ago "

One of the big new additions to Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 over the previous entry is the addition of Skill Battle mode.
Skill Battle lets players form a team of three characters from the fantastical worlds of Puyo Puyo and Tetris.
Each of these characters brings their own skillset to each match, so the key here is to assemble the right team with the right mix of skills and their effects to maximize your odds of victory.

SEGA leaves Japanese arcade management business

(https://thumbs.gfycat.com/GiganticScaredIndri-small.gif)

Quote
SEGA has basically, mostly, sold off its Arcade arcade business to GENDA, a company founded in 2018 to operate arcade rentals, online crane games.
I know its mostly a Japanese thing, but SEGA’s arcade business has been part of its history almost since the start and having them sell off 85% of the shares on the companies 60th Anniversary is a bit bitter.

We think it’s difficult to perfect the balance of Puyo Puyo vs. Tetris and it will likely be something that we’ll pursue forever.
We are constantly working on the balance of the existing rules, but we are also making adjustments to the new rules, so be sure to check them out.

Dominon (and Dominon X) : The Game that Became Puyo Puyo

(https://i.ibb.co/8bmjgGT/Dominon-Prototype-of-Puyo-Puyo.jpg)

Quote
Dominon and Dominon X remained unknown until Niitani found them kicking around in storage and decided to share them with the world.
In announcing their imminent release, he's been careful to note that they're being presented as-is, incomplete and with no attempt made to fix any bugs that might be lurking in the code.
Dominon wasn't ready for prime time in 1990, and it hasn't gotten any closer in the last twenty-five years.

How SEGA Adapts to Covid-19 Pandemic

I think SEGA pulling 85% out of a business like Amusement Centers is a good thing, while they profited for awhile, that profit had been up and down. Never stable and it continued to shrink.
SEGA pushing more developers and workers into making software titles, especially since they are on the rise in sales and due to COVID-19 a lot more people are playing video games at home; it makes sense to adapt.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 (Switch) Hands-on Preview

Quote
The biggest new addition is Skill Battles.
You pick a team of three and make use of MP to use special abilities that do things like clear junk tiles from your screen, up your defense, or heal your health.
These battles end when one team knocks out the HP of the other one.
You actually don’t die when your screen fills up, which is weird and against what I’ve learned in puzzle games.

Schizophrenic Difficulty in Columns Crown (GBA)

Flash Columns is a mode in Columns Crown (GBA) where player (Ruby/Jade) must clear preset jewels to reach and destroy one or more jewels with a white outline before progressing forward.
Flash Columns can range from hellishly difficult to ridiculously easy, just by going from a normal stage to a Challenging Stage.
For evidence, the very first Challenging Stage can be cleared without the player even pressing any buttons.

The “Skill Battle” is not the same as in Puyo Puyo Chronicle, but rather a reworked version of it.
Based on the current Tetris and Puyo Puyo game system regulations, we have been working on this game while simultaneously adjusting the balance between Puyo Puyo and Tetris.
After 35 years of Tetris and 29 years of Puyo Puyo, I feel that the game’s playing skills have improved a lot.

"SEGA approached us in 2012 to present the idea of the 'mash-up' and many within our Company were already familiar with Puyo Puyo and fans of the brand.
Having an opportunity to collaborate with SEGA and their talented development team made the decision an easy one, so plans were put in place to launch Puyo Puyo Tetris in Japan early in 2014 on handheld and console platforms.
Several years later, the game was introduced to other parts of the world."

Aesthetically, PPT2 is so far looking to be a more polished version of the original.
All of the animations have been redone, a few new styles of graphics are experimented with, and you’re less likely to see the same attack animations in-game as before.
There’s something almost universally charming about modern Puyo Puyo’s art style that I adore.

Sega Entertainment Replaces Arcade's Legacy Systems with Infor ERP

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/columns.png)

Quote
These legacy systems lack scalability, making them an increasing encumbrance to operational improvements. Its arcade operations, in particular, was dominated by analog workflows dependent on individual skills, and arcade managers were constantly overwhelmed with paper-based bookkeeping.
Sega Entertainment chose Infor LN, Infor's ERP solution for manufacturing, for its tremendous versatility, as well as the availability of all functions required to improve its operations and launch new businesses, and on the strength of Hitachi's proposal.

I was kinda hoping after Puyo Puyo™ Tetris® that Sega may consider other spin-off crossovers with puzzle games, and I had hope Columns would be it.

But honestly, I dunno if I could trust Sega with putting a story to Columns. Don't get me wrong I would love their to be a Columns IV or a Columns reboot, especially if given characters and story just like modern Puyo Puyo games... but it depends what they will have in mind for such story and characters.
The little-known "backstory" of Columns is that  is regarded as a Phoenician game played by merchants. Phoenicia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenicia) being a civilisation during Ancient Greek times, they were known for their navy, their charismatic merchants and for establishing a sort of "empire" through good trade business over military. This is why Columns I was sort of Greco-Roman in theme and Columns III be Egyptian because Greece, Rome and Egypt were all part of Phoenicia's empire of trade routes across the Mediterranean sea.
To simply put, I don't want Sega to give up Columns Phoenician/Greco-Roman theme in favour of knocking off Puyo Puyo characters and themes (which they attempted to do so for such games as Columns Crown and Columns Jewel tried to do the very same with colourful fantasy forest-lands and ditzy marketable modern teen girl etc.)
Heck, I never even heard of Phoenicia until Columns introduced me to it! I've heard of the Punics from the Punic Wars but I did not know they were descendants of the Phoenicians.

I know when it comes to the "theme" of Tetris there's not much to it given it's about stacking blocks so Sega took liberties to apply a "theme" to it that will fit with Puyo-lore. Thus introducing it as a game from "Planet Tetris" and that it's introduce from the crew of the SS Tetra.
But way I see it it while Tetris is an international game it is still somewhat cultural to Soviet Russia due to it being promoted as "The Soviet Challenge" and sometimes depicted with the Space Race or the Saint Basil's Cathedral. While this was done more for promotional reasons than cultural I still regard Tetris for it's Russian roots.
Just saying if I scripted PPT, I would keep it mostly the same as it is now, the only difference being the star ship SS Tetra be made in Russia, a country located on Ringo's world (Puyo Puyo 7 proves places like UK, Egypt, Easter Island exist on Ringo's world so perhaps other countries exist there as well). It would fit in with the "Space Race" theme of a group of Russians wishing to pioneer Space.

My concern is if Sega ever decided to reboot and give Columns a story, whenever independent or crossover with Puyo Puyo, I just don't want Sega to throw out the Phoenician angle and have some "Planet Columns" where everyone simply look like all the other colourful characters but with gemstones instead of puyo accessories. Things like that.
If Puyo Puyo™ Tetris® is a story about visitors from space, why not Puyo Puyo™ Columns be about visitors from another time? (Which would make sense given "Columns II: The Voyage Through Time" had something to do with time travel.) I just don't want them to give up COlumns ancient antiquity theme.

That's some deep knowledge about Columns, Mystic Monkey, I'm impressed.  :))
Any corelation between Phoenicia and Phoenix ? Does they worship Phoenix may be?

Columns does have heavier tone compared to Puyo Puyo or Tetris.
If Puyo Puyo or Tetris is more like Bejeweled in term of presentation,
Columns is more like Treasure of Montezuma or Jewel Master series.
I think it would be hard to make crossover between them without changing the tone of one of them.

I like Columns Crown, but I agree it changes the tone too much.
Super Columns (Game Gear) I guess is the only one could manage the story well using "Phoenicia" theme.

(https://segaretro.org/images/thumb/4/4e/SuperColumns_GG_JP_Box_Front.jpg/520px-SuperColumns_GG_JP_Box_Front.jpg)

Here's some JP Super Columns Trivia that's shared by Rouken on SMSPower forum :

Quote
Acording from the manual of the original Columns game for the Sega's home systems, it's said Columns is a game played by the merchants of Phoenicia, but the cited place is only used again in Super Colomns. Super Columns in the only Columns game to use a Story Mode around Phoenicia with dedicated characters (other Columns games uses other characters, like Sakura Wars, Tezuka characters, or original characters without any link with Phoenicia). Acording with the US manual (https://segaretro.org/images/d/d7/Supercolumns_gg_us_manual.pdf), there's a sacred amulet who brings peace to Phoenicia. But an evil merchant called Surhand steal the amulet to make all Phoenicia's citizens to do the evil merchant's biddings. Now the player must face Surhand to take the amulet back to its right place, but the player must face Surhand's minions first (Spoiler Alert: Surhand is a girl!!). The US manual don't list the oponent names aside Surhand's, but the japanese manual yes. As an informative purpose, I'll list the name of the characters in japanese (and my translation, but it can be a wrong translation... I'll accept corrections) in order you face them in the game: マハリド (Mahalid), カリラド・シン (Kalirad Shin), ザイダ (Zaida), ア・ブドゥー (A-Bdoo), スルハンド (Surhand). As my japanese knowledge is minimum to basic, I can't read the additional information about the characters, aside Zaida being a bodyguard, and if the character the player controls have a name, or if he is just an avatar.

Phoenician lore is fascinating, and honestly I would of never even heard of it if I didn't bother to read the back of Columns case in the 90s. It turns out they were an actual real-life semitic culture that existed across the Mediterranean in 2500–539 BC.
I dunno if they had anything to do with the phoenix, but the name derived from the expensive purple dye they used to make and sell throughout the Mediterranean. They practically established a trade empire throughout the Mediterranean Sea, an empire on par with an actual empire but mostly on business, trade and charisma than swords and conquering. Over time they became more known as the Punic from Carthage and ended up in a scuffle with Rome throughout the Punic Wars. Rome was victorious. The term "salted the Earth" came from the Romans destroying Carthage and scrubbing it of it's culture instead of implimenting it as it's own which Roman Empire would usually do.
While Columns I may appear Greco-Roman and Columns III may appear Egyptian, both Rome, Greece, Egypt and most countries around the Mediterranean Sea were part of the phoenician Empire. So it makes sense for Columns to be a "game played by merchants" because Phoenicia was known for it's merchants and it's navy.
This is why on one hand I would really love it if Sonic Team would decide to remake Columns in the same format as Puyo Puyo games, with interesting colourful characters and stories. Maybe going as far as tying-in with Ringo Ando's world given Columns riding on Puyo Puyo's tailcoat may do it some favour in the longrun.
But on the other hand I wouldn't want them to drop the Phoenician angle at all. While Tetris has become an international game, some regard it for it's Soviet Russian roots. PPT however thought it would be best to have a "Planet Tetris" and a "Spaceship Tetra" with a crew that speaks generic english, with no mentions or ties to Russia at all.It's sort of what happened in Columns Crown. Columns Crown (https://segaretro.org/Columns_Crown) appears to have the Puyo Puyo treatment with colourful characters and story, but at a cost of it looking almost too much like Puyo Puyo, such as a generic fantasy world of forests and magic etc.

I was hoping it would of been the start of a spin-off crossover series.

First Puyo Puyo vs Tetris
Then Puyo Puyo vs Columns
Then... actually, they're the only two tile-based puzzle games I know of. I dunno, Lumines? Dr. Mario? Eitherway it be interesting to see what other stacking puzzle games can blend with Puyo Puyo.

Some of my friends who have PPT, they bought because there is Tetris in it.
They don't really care about Puyo Puyo.
If they get rid Tetris from the crossover, most likely they won't be interested.

I myself prefer Tetris than Puyo Puyo, since I'm not that good at Puyo Puyo.
I might buy it because I loved Columns, but the last time I bough Puyo Puyo game (that's not crossover) was Mega Drive version.

I'm not that big on either Puyo or Tetris. But I would be quick to snap up "Puyo Puyo vs Columns" if there was ever a game. I'm rather "set in my ways" so to speak when it comes to stacking games and given Columns for the Mega Drive was the first stacking game I ever played it's why I wish the franchise had a more solid continuation.

And it's not like I entirely dislike Puyo Puyo. Sonic Mania got me to appreciate it more with Chemical Plant Zone boss.

Rumour said there will be 16 new characters (four for every update, we already got 8 now).
Since it's still enough for Puyo Puyo characters, probably other than Sonic, we'll just get Puyo Puyo characters.

I like the TV series because of the arcade game.
There is Sailor Moon beat em up Arcade game that was fun to play for two players at arcade center in my town.
I used to play it with my brother and could finish the game with only 1 coin for each of us (couldn't do it if I play alone).
I always use Sailor Venus and my brother always use Sailor Mars, never use other characters.
This is one game that I could not play with my best friend back then because both of us always want to play as Sailor Venus.

She was probably the earliest "waifu" I've ever had, decades before I even heard of the word. Though I didn't like her that much given I never watched the show. She was just how I imagined my dream girl at the time.

I think she's probably one of my earliest too since unlike now anime were still so rare on television.
Most cartoon were from Disney, Warner Bros, or Hanna Barbera.
I can't remember who's my first waifu, either Tyris Flare (Golden Axe) or Nei (Phantasy Star II).

I wouldn't mind collaboration, or any help at all. C# is my weakness with this project. I don't have twitter or dunno how to ask for help with it.
Though I'm worried since all I can do is be the idea guy and make rough models to put together, I'm concerned if I did get a team going I'd be regarded as the weak link. I've got this notion that the world wants do-ers, not thinkers. And I'm a thinker.

So anyways yes. I'm working on a Puyo Puyo fan game in Unity. A fan game that operates rather differently from the traditional one. I would like to finish it by October (30th Anniversary) but I doubt I'll have it finished by then.

At the moment I'm simply trying to get the gameplay to work in a beta state. Y'know, simply stacking puyo.

I don't really have a full fledge story in mind because honestly I would settle fo just a single Challenge Mode and leave it at that. A Versus Mode would also be nice. Do go as far as alternative or additional gamemodes like Fever or Sun modes.

A very-very rough story in mind is Sig as the protagonist due to his hetrochromia allowing him to stack puyo in a 3x3x8 cuboid playing area. However Arle, Amitite and Ringo are usually the reoccuring three so I might just stick to them or something. While the popping system of puyo is still the same (except puyo of the same colour forward and behind also count as a connect) the method of dropping puyo into the play area is entirely different. As in literally pick up the puyo and drop them in, like balled-up socks into the sock drawer.

To hardcore puyo fans this may seem like a radical change of playstyle different from traditional, but the point of it all is a proof of concept for a new puyo puyo gameplay fit for VR.

The Limited Run version of the SEGA Astro City Mini will only be limited to 3,500 units, which will probably make this version sought after in the collectors market compared to the regular Japanese version.
As far as I know, the SEGA Astro City Mini unit included inside the English packaging is exactly the same as the Japanese retail unit.

Even Column Jewel had various characters that Sena was pitted against. Some of them looked genuinely interesting... one of them being what I pressume a naked goddess that used her long hair for decency.

I don't mind if all these characters were put together for a revised Columns universe like Puyo Puyo had but I'd rather it not be Sena Ruby, Jade or Culet as main protagonist.

I wish I can pitch Sega my ideas for a Column universe that can co-exist with the Puyo Puyo franchise.

Someone possibly inspired by Chang'e (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chang%27e), given the japanese bamboo, visable moon and the bunny she's holding.
Someone possibly inspired by Aphrodite (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aphrodite), given the greek-like background with the seashell and the fact she's naked.

The game looks decent, such a shame I never know that game was exist back then.
Yeah, from her pose when in battle mode, it's most likely Aphrodite.
If it's going the legendary character route, then the Egyptian girl could be Cleopatra.

Tip: How To Create An Absolute Chaos in Puyo Puyo Tetris

(https://i.ibb.co/q0mqB7Y/How-To-Create-An-Absolute-Chaos-in-Puyo-Puyo-Tetris.jpg)

Quote
A hot tip for you: Puyo Puyo Tetris is best played with four players, all of whom are playing the fried egg-shaped character, whose name is "O".
The voice lines in PPT are annoying at best, but Eggboy can only react to what's going on on-screen with a series of PI-PI-PI noises that creates absolute chaos if every single player has them.
You can even choose the alternate voice pack to have him be really angry all the time. Seriously, try it..

Surhand as the main villain would definitely be cool.
May be she could join forces with Puyo Puyo Tetris villains too, but for villainy leadership, Surhan is likely more interesting to explore.

Surhand as the main villain would definitely be cool.
May be she could join forces with Puyo Puyo Tetris villains too, but for villainy leadership, Surhan is likely more interesting to explore.
Fan story I have in mind is set in the Classical-era (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_antiquity) of the Mediterranean sea (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mediterranean_Sea). The main character a daughter of a phoenician merchant named Amethyst who was taught the game of Column from her father, who claims that the game of Columns is a game played by merchants for both entertainment and business decisions.

One day their ship was arrested and her father was brought to Queen Elissar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dido) for stealing the Crown Jewels and was imprisoned. Amethyst found out that it was actually Surhand who stole the crown jewels and divided the jewels up amongst her henchmen who are now in capitals across the Phoenician Empire. Along the way she meets new friends, peculiar characters and Surhands lackies.

Characters in mind:
Amethyst = Phoenician daughter, has a sort of Scrooge McDuck complex given she wants to be a wealthy merchant someday.
Rubi = An arabian genie who grants a single wish to those who beat her at a Columns match. However her wishes are not always what the wisher desires.
Garnet
= African girl
Topaz =  An egyptian priestess who tends the pyramids. While she may seem rather broody she is actually a good-hearted person who will help others she deems worthy.
Esmerelda
= A gypsie girl who has traveled around Europe.
Sapphira = A greek girl, either from Corinth or the Cyclades.

Might change the names around but you get the idea. Amethyst' circle of friends are all named after gemstones that are coloured after the Column gems.
Other characters in mind in Herald, an angel/greek god of the game itself.

Puyo Puyo connection:
Puyo Puyo 7 (https://arleandcarbuncle.fandom.com/wiki/Puyo_Puyo_7) introduces a brand new "world" of the Puyo Puyo universe. This world being more based on our own world than the fantasy worlds that Arle Nadja and Amitie come from. The game stars Ringo Ando who attends a school at Suzuran district in Japan and her story starts with one day puyo falling from the skies. Given she was unfamiliar to them meaning her world never had puyo before.
The same game had her go on a world journey to places like  Easter Island, Area 51, Stonehenge, and Egypt (all conventiantly with railway accessable from Japan) which means Ringo's world is more like ours than Arle and Amitie's worlds.

If I were to do a "Puyo Puyo × Columns" story it would be one day Ringo took her friends to a local history museum in Tokyo and there they find a tablet written in phoenician and some mysterious gemstones. Arle could feel the magic from these gemstones is the same from puyo. Then a magic time portal opens up and they are cast into the past where Ringo meets Amethyst. Because Amethyst can only speak phoenician they could not understand each other and when they challenge one another to a game they find how different their games are. Afterwards the magic of the jewels and of the puyo allow Ringo and Amethyst to share a language.

While puyo were not present in Ringo's world prior to Puyo Puyo 7, after Arle's first Puyo Puyo × Columns match she realise that the magic from the gems that break is the same as the magic from the puyo that pop. (That is if the Owanimo (http://cw.nanako.moe/wiki/Owanimo) spell is still canon.) That is to say that while there was no puyo on Ringo's world in the past the same magic exist in the form of the gems used in Columns.

As for where orange gems fit in with Puyo Puyo × Columns matches I dunno, given there is no orange puyo equivilent. Maybe orange gems simply don't show up in PP×C matches, or maybe orange puyo are introduce.

That's all I thought of so far. I might make this game myself given I doubt Sega will ever be interested in a Puyo Puyo crossover other than Tetris... but I'm working on another Puyo Puyo fan game at the moment, and I won't post pictures on it until it takes more shape.

Wow... Your fan story is neat.
Even without Puyo Puyo connection, it's already interesting.
Characters named after Columns' gemstones really would make it more memorable than those Columns Crown characters.
I really wish SEGA ressurect Columns franchises.

Post by: Mystic Monkey on August 14, 2021, 07:26:04 am
Thanks. Other than six girls named after gems, there will be other characters in mind. Even cameos from more obscure Puyo Puyo characters such as the Mummy (https://arleandcarbuncle.fandom.com/wiki/Mummy) in Egypt or Zoh Daimaoh (https://arleandcarbuncle.fandom.com/wiki/Zoh_Daimaoh) in India.

If I ever get better at Unity I might make the game. I can imagine it a fresh new look in my mind eye.

However, I dunno if I should tweak the gameplay or not, such as make opponent crushing automated instead of at a push of the button.

If I were to make a Puyo Puyo × Columns there would be some needed tweaks to make it more compatible with one another. Such as whenever or not I should add an orange puyo or remove the orange gem.

But two thing I would definitely want to bring over from Puyo Pop would be special attacks after chaining gems and a good story mode with cute characters.

Puyo-Puyo has too manu cute characters.
Even the enemies are cute.
I'd prefer if there's more serious characters.
Cute characters make the game more appealing though, and I think it would be important to appeal to the Puyo-Puyo fanbase given that fan base take up the majority of Sega's puzzle-genre dynamic.

That's kinda make me little sad.
Puyo puyo's not even original SEGA franchise.
They got it from Compile.
But same thing happened with other genres too so it's understandable.
Project Diva in rhythm game, Football Manager in management sim, and Initial D in racing game.
Well at least there are stil three original SEGA franchise at the top :
Sonic, Phantasy Star, and Yakuza on platformer, RPG, and action adventure.

They got it from Compile.
But I'm kind of right given the few attempts they tried to jumpstart the franchise in the past. Such as Columns Crown (https://segaretro.org/Columns_Crown), Sega Ages Columns (https://segaretro.org/Sega_Ages_2500_Series_Vol._7:_Columns) and Columns Jewel (https://segaretro.org/Columns_Jewel) being games that utilize colourful cutie artstyles akin to Puyo Puyo.

The only problem with those three examples is that while they had stories they weren't gripping stories. Mostly just protagonist encountering opponents for feeble reasons than a proper fleshed-out world or characters.

Columns Deluxe (https://segaretro.org/Columns_Deluxe) is the closest we ever got to a Columns Puyo Puyo crossover, further appealing Columns to the Puyo Puyo fanbase.

Maybe that's why we don't really have Columns anymore? Perhaps Sega hought "The Puyo Puyo fans aren't biting. Let's just give up Columns and concentrate on Puyo Puyo for now on." But I still believe Columns can work in todays audience if executed right.

But same thing happened with other genres too so it's understandable.
Project Diva in rhythm game, Football Manager in management sim, and Initial D in racing game.

Yeah Sega seems to lack confidence with their own IPs. I mean I sort of know why given what happened to Golden Axe: Beast Rider (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Golden_Axe:_Beast_Rider) and now they seem to be trusting their IPs with third-party developers. I mean I like that we got remakes of late but can we really entirely credit Sega other than they were likely asked by the third-party developers than them asking them.

I think it's because SEGA in-house studios were limited and each of them already has a project they are working on.
That's why they trusted old IPs to third party developers.
Even Sonic Colors Ultimate was trusted to third party developer (Blind Squirell Entertainment (https://blindsquirrelentertainment.com/)) since Sonic Team is busy with Sonic Rangers.

It's kinda sad Sega can't make their own games anymore... but at the same time at least we're getting canon sequels and remakes of old Sega games which is better than them doing nothing. I'd love to proove my worth to Sega someday and make a fan game they will respond positively too.

I hope so to. Or the very least find a small group that's willing to help me with the technical stuff I'm struggling with.

It's a VR Puyo Puyo fan game. Instead of a 6x12 2D playing area, you have a 3x3x8 3D playing area that you can rotate, all the while still same number of spaces for puyo to land on. Instead of an automated slow decent you simply pick up puyo and drop them into the playing area where they will automatically down-drop. Connecting four puyo is still the aim of the game only this time forward and behind are just as viable connecting areas as up, down, left and right.

I wanted to make a working demo before the Puyo Puyo 30th anniversary which I thought was this September but turbs out it was back on March... not that it matters given it's been two years or so and still haven't reached alpha-testing.

Yes, it's published in 1999 when SEGA wasn't considering Nintendo as their rival anymore.
They set their eye on Sony and their Playstation 2.
That year SEGA also made Sonic Pocket Adventure for Neo Geo Pocket.

Nintendo always welcomed anyone on their handheld.
Sony also even welcomed SEGA in their Playstation 1 back then.

(https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/616GYD6A46L._AC_.jpg)

As long as the game's good, who the publisher is doesn't matter.
The decision is in publisher, whether they want to put the game on their rival console or not.
SEGA also let their franchise ported on PC / Amiga / Commodore / PC Engine too back then.

(https://i.ebayimg.com/thumbs/images/g/NsAAAOSwcmVf8BQx/s-l300.jpg)

And we know PC Engine was also SEGA's rival.

Understandable. Many things we finally catch up years later because of internet.
Before internet back then, I always curious why Street Fighter II games for Mega Drive / SNES were suddenly dissapeared in my country.
Years later I found out in the internet that turned out many games stores was warned by some agents of government.
They said the game was deemed forbidden.
The reason was turned out because of Zangief's stage.

The staggering figure is generated via the 30% cut Apple takes from all digital purchases via its App Store, which is used on millions of devices all over the world, including iPhones, iPads and laptop computers.
It's worth noting that Apple's 'cut' of digital sales is believed to be the same as Nintendo's on the eShop, and it's understandable that the platform holder should take a bite out of every sale made on its platform.

Besides we;ve been around for a few decades, we've seen such sites pop up and snowball in trend. If Facebook can be a passing trend when will Twitter? It's an endless cycle of push and pull.

But given how popular Twitter has become, sooner or later Microsoft and Google will buy out Twitter and then they will make Windows and Google accounts double as Twitter accounts. So even if I oppose Twitter sooner or later it will be mandatory for most internet users.

Quote
—Before release, the character positions were overhauled quite substantially, why’s that?

Morita: One of our female colleagues requested that we place a female character on each floor (laughs). That way, you can potentially climb to the top floor of the tower by only battling female opponents. That being the case, we figured we ought to put a merchant on every floor as well, and so the roster saw lots of alterations along those lines.

Puyo Puyo Tsuu is a puzzle game developed by Compile in 1994, initially released for Sega's System C-2 arcade board before being ported to other consoles (such as the Sega Mega Drive, Sega Game Gear, and Sega Saturn).
It is the sequel to the Sega/Compile version of Puyo Puyo, whose path the entire series has followed to date.
The standalone game was exclusively released in Japan until 2000, when Sega ported it to the Neo Geo Pocket Color under the name Puyo Pop in the US/Europe (unrelated to the GBA Puyo Pop) — making it the first Puyo Puyo game to be released outside Japan unaltered (and establishing the Puyo Puyo/Puyo Pop naming discretion still used today).

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!

May be they're trying to cheer him up?
But look at his face.

May be they're trying to cheer him up?
But look at his face.
Shinji still looks depressed despite being thrown into the cheerful world of Puyo Puyo.
I've only seen a few Season 1 episodes of Evangelion and I'm not surprised why it would take more than blob-stacking to cheer him up. He'll probably have to play gigantic puyo puyo matches in his mech while his father berates him on his stacking skills.

Puyo puyo is a stressful game indeed, no wonder Shinji isn't happy.

Still if having a giant robot to pilot and variety type of girls to be friend with couldn't cheer him up, nothing ever will.

Quote
Jujutsu Kaisen is a best-selling manga series of all time that has been adapted into 24-episode anime television series from October 2020 to March 2021
In Jujutsu Kaisen, all living beings emanate an energy called Cursed Energy, which arises from negative emotions that naturally flow throughout the body.
Normal people cannot control this flow in their bodies. As a result, they continually lose Cursed Energy, resulting in the birth of Curses, a race of spiritual beings whose primary desire is to bring harm to humanity.
These curses are shown as gruesome monsters.
Jujutsu Sorcerers are people who control the flow of Cursed Energy in their bodies, allowing them to use it as they please and also to reduce its release.

Chu Chu Rocket was an experimental online game while keeping costs as low as possible

Quote
Q : How long did you spend working on the game, and how many people were involved?

Naka: I can speak for the entire game industry when I say that nowadays, game development often takes too long and requires a huge number of people and in many cases, games can't turn a profit in spite of all the resources that went into making them. With Chu Chu Rocket, I decided to pursue an experimental title while keeping costs as low as possible. The development period was around 4 months and, roughly speaking, the core game was built in around one-and-a-half months, with the rest of the development period spent polishing up the network functionality and making small balance tweaks.

The size of the development team was in the range of 10 people; during the final stages of development on Sonic Adventure, staff among Sonic Team gradually started to understand the need to work on something smaller and more immediate, and so when the idea for Chu Chu Rocket was proposed, we decided to go ahead and make it.

The game was very easy to make because everyone shared an identical understanding of the game, and spontaneous, "what if we tried this…?"-type ideas could be immediately tried and adopted on the spot. Take the puzzle mode, for instance: at first, we were only thinking of the game in terms of the four-player online battle mode, but when we started thinking of how to utilize the arrow system in order to solve puzzles, it turned out to have quite a lot of depth.

If we ever get a Tetris movie (and I'm not talking about the upcoming biographical film (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris_(film)), like a fictional adaption of it),  Ithink it should take place in Russia.

Yes, me too, that's why my favorite version is Tengen Tetris (NES) / Atari Tetris (Arcade),
all game themes are from Russian folk songs.

The left one, not the right one .....

SEGA’s data analytics for mobile gaming now faster than Sonic

(https://i.ibb.co/pww5Hsb/Sega-Mobile-Games-2.png)

Quote
According to Masaki Takeuchi, Section Manager of Business & Data Analysis Section, Business Planning Department, Game Contents & Service Business Division at SEGA, mobile gaming analysts are now free from the routine work of preparing data reports and enable them to spend more time solving complex analytical challenges.
SEGA introduced Qlik’s solutions, including Qlik Sense, to bring in multiple data sources and automate the creation of routine reports.
With Qlik, analysts can independently collect, process, and analyze the required data. They are also able to incorporate data from external sources without writing complex algorithms.

Yes, me too, that's why my favorite version is Tengen Tetris (NES) / Atari Tetris (Arcade),
all game themes are from Russian folk songs.

The left one, not the right one .....

If I ever direct/produce a blown-budget Hollywood movie around Tetris, I'd make it about an alien invasion during the Cold War where aliens use tetronimo-shaped meteors to attack the Russians, all the while being a clever metaphor for the Berlin Wall.

Then again, perhaps best to just watch this music video.

Not with pixels though, with chiseled asteroids. Though making Tetris an allegory to the Berlin Wall would be just as creative.

Yes, wall and blocks do make a good chemistry.
Especially if this is no ordinary "wall".
It could teach history too since probably young people nowadays didn't know about the fall of Berlin Wall history.

To be honest I barely know much about it myself other than it divided people.

But given Tetris is a Russian puzzle game about stacking blocks and Berlin is a country in Russia it would make sense to put these together.

Speaking of Puyo Puyo, still kinda pissed off Puyo Puyo Tetris doesn't have more Russian themes for the Tetris side of the games.

It establishes that the Tetris characters are from an alien planet, why not they're from Russia instead?

Honestly I don't know Korobeiniki from anything else other than Tetris.

But I'm just saying, Tetris is made up of three worlds. Arle Nadja's high-fantasy world, Amitie's magic school world and Ringo Ando modern Japan. In Puyo Puyo 7 it shows that Ringo's world has other countries that she gets to visit with these special trains or something. They could of made the Starship Tetra come from Russia instead of another dimension.

Probably because it's based on SEGA Tetris and SEGA Tetris wasn't Russian-like.

SEGA Genesis Mini 2 will be in much shorter supply (around one-tenth) than original

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8RGornqWgw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8RGornqWgw)

My questions about Genesis Mini 2 shipments were forwarded to Sega of Japan's corporate office, which eventually confirmed that the new miniaturized console was a "Japan-only project" for the company.
"The Sega Genesis Mini 2 could only be produced in small numbers due to the global semiconductor shortage," reads a letter from the Sega president's office, so the company opted to produce a small Western batch of Genesis Mini 2s alongside its order of Mega Drive Mini 2s.
"The number of units for this project makes up around one-tenth of the total for the previous Genesis Mini," the letter states.

This version's titled Futari de Puyo Puyo Sun & is restricted to 2P matches; as they kinda expected, they simply ran out of time to finish the port.
With 1 month to go, they realized they wouldn't be done by master up, but the core game was done & it would've been a shame to shelve it.

I don't think he has any other poses.
If you look closely to his pants, seems like other poses were edited from that one pose.

Meanwhile in alternate universe, following Puyo Puyo - Mean Bean Machine change, this was what's happened when SEGA localized Columns and made it a Robotnik game.

If you still have the game installed, it can still be played.

Quote
NSega’s last hurrah for first-party Dreamcast games was the Tetris-like Puyo Puyo Fever, which was released in Japan in March of 2004.
However, that wasn’t the de facto final official Dreamcast game ever.
In March of 2007, several days before the PlayStation 3 launched in Europe and Australia, Japanese Dreamcast owners also received the shoot ‘em up Karous.
So while many remember 2002 as the Dreamcast’s last year of even minor market relevancy, the console did live on for quite a few years beyond that.

He can't do diet anymore because he's already ....
Well, his story is rather tragic...

His wife wanted to get all the gems from him at one single go.
So, one day she thought hard and at last clicked upon a plan.
She decided to kill him and get all the gems together.
But after she did that, there was nothing but blood all around & no trace of any gems at all.
She was highly grieved because now she would not get even one single gem.

This is also why we never get Columns IV.
He's already gone, because of his greedy wife.
