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



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.

I don't recognise some of these drivers. Didn't Crazy Taxi only had two games and a mobile?

Three games and two mobile games (but both of them are already closed the server).

Crazy Taxi Tycoon is the same game with Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire, they just changed the name.
It closed the server in 2020, while Crazy Taxi City Rush closed the server in 2021.

Sega Rally Championship 1995 - No VO Hack



Quote
This is an xdelta patch for the Playstation 2 port of Sega Rally Championship 1995 ISO file.
It removes all the annoying in-game voice lines from the Announcer/Co-pilot like ‘turn-left’, ‘long-medium-right-turn-maybe’, etc. and other lines related to crashing and driving the wrong way.
It leaves intact the initial 3, 2, 1, Go and the Checkpoint and Finish! lines.

Download the patch here : https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/6901/

Crazy taxi Tycoon and Gazillionair doesn't sound as fun as the original games.

Well.. The genre is different.
It's more like a management game than driving/racing game.
Treat is as a spin-off like Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood or Sonic Battle, which somehow has more detailed story than the main games.

YA-YA-YA-YA-YA! Crazy Taxi merch is now available!🚕🔥



Quote
Being a taxi driver can be thirsty work—especially if you’re a crazy cabbie with particularly eccentric driving techniques to get any passenger to their destination in record time!
Keep your head in the game and stay hydrated with the sleek Crazy Taxi mug.

Yeah but would you rather drive around like a adrenaline-high loony or... just manage a Taxi business?

Spinoff is a hit and miss since it's a different genre.
I prefer Persona 5 Striker (action RPG) than every main Persona games (Turn-based RPG).
While I don't like Sonic Spinball,
I love Sonic Battle more than Sonic Adventure 1 & 2 back then.
The gameplay suit my taste and the story's being told nicely.
Emerl's death hit hard more than E-102 Gamma.







I don't mind spinoffs had different genres.
Besides... there's always Crazy Taxi City Rush if we didn't like Crazy Taxi Tycoon.
(At least back then since both games were being delisted already)

I guess so. Regardless of matter of taste or not, at least it tries to be a smörgåsbord of flavour.

SEGA's Virtua Racing - Battle of the Home Ports!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdFuZ8j7ZMo





Quote
Virtua Racing was Sega's first foray into 3D graphics, following over a decade's worth of pseudo-3D offerings (starting with Turbo) with 2D sprites scaling in real time.
Almost everything in Virtua Racing is rendered with flat-shaded quadrilateral polygons, which means track designs are more complex than in prior Sega racers.
The physics model, however, is not dissimilar to earlier games such as Power Drift - it is impossible to destroy your car, and the only penalty for driving off-road is a significant speed decrease.
