So Keiji Inafune decided to throw a Megaman Legends spiritual succesor on top of Mighty no.9 at the Kickstarter.
Great, why this month you fool? My poor wallet needs to recover from Shenmue 3.

But yeah, Megaman Legends 3...Kinda.…
Or "Megaman replaced Bon Bonne and is now the third Bonne sibling", according to the teaser pic.

So yeah, a month ago I finally got a emulator working so I can play Ty the Tasmanian tiger 3 which I never had a chance of finding.
And Suikoden 3 is released for the first time in decades in Europe.
And then Shenmue 3.
And am still playing Assasin's creed 3, but that's a coincidence.
And now the closest we get to Megaman legends 3. It's the triple sequel month.

Hmm, Sonic adventure 3... Actually no, please don't. Not with the current clowns at Sega in charge. NiGHTS 3 maybe. Or ohh, Dynamite cop 3. A third Rent a Hero?
Actually, I'm scared of Sega's output lately, let them quietly sit in a corner and overthink their lives first.

Usually I don't give a darn about spiritual succesors, which is why I didn't jump on board with Mighty no. 9 or the Commander Keen succesor.
I care for the characters. Without them, it's just a generic Megaman clone/ maze puzzle platformer and I see plenty of those everywhere.

But Red Ash/Megaman Legends 3 represents 2 things I haven't seen in decades, both a fantasy RPG story that isn't super realistic militairy angry ish, like most American RPG's. Or needlessly poetic and complicated for the sake of being complicated like Square Enix is doing.
Nope, just hopeful and optimistic and about the joy of adventuring, like Grandia and Skies of Arcadia.

And second, it's returning the general game genre of Platform RPG mix.
To me, that's peanutbutter and chocolate together.
Platform games are great to play but without world building and context it's just a bunch of obstacle courses.  Especially 3d platformers.
I need me some world building.
Just the worldmap alone made Crash Bandicoot 1 my favorite.
Besides Twinsanity. Something about having "go to level 1-1" teleporter rooms just makes the middle Crash games feel sterile and static to me.

RPG's are great and have a fantastic universe to play around in, yet the gameplay is detached because it's just abstract nonsense creating a distance between you and the game character.
But combine the direct on-hands action from platformers and the world building of Rpg's, and Bam. Game heaven for me.

Megaman Legends, Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, Sonic Adventure, Tail Concerto to some degree. My favorite kind of game and completely missing in action for decades with only Kingdom Hearts coming close to the idea.

So yeah, sucks it ain't a proper Megaman Legends but the winning combination of these 2 missing ingriedients makes me back it either way.
But yeah, I fear this game will have trouble getting enough money, with the Castlevania and Shenmue succesor's taking the spotlight. Realy bad timing there, dudes. I can't save 2 niche RPG games in the same month.
There's also an attached Anime kickstarter for Red Ash as well, but eh. Cool if it happens, but win me over with the game first.

And Sigh, means I'll have to do a Megaman legends dissected this month before the kickstarter ends  I guess. Just can't get back to animating.
Err, speaking of which, shenmue dissected:

As for the Sonic news, I made 3 video's but considered them a little too cynical for my own channel, so threw them at the Truesonicspirit channel who're a little harsher. But if you want to hear what thoughts bothered me about Sonic recently, 3 video's:
Jup, more 3.
I didn't voice the third but did write most of it. And edited it, a rarity with game rant video's these days.

As for animations, trying to get a smal IMP done this month to have something..

Hi Roger!
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Interesting takes of my old art style you did there.
GUAXINIMACANALHADO Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Nah, couldn't think of any and I just recently finished that game when I wrote it.
I guess it has a cartoon if you count parody flashes.

Hey Roger, I've been meaning to ask you something. I know I'm just a story teller and not an animated director or whatever... but would you be interested in working together to make a Five Night's At Freddy's Parody or something? Don't get me wrong it's not the gameplay that makes me attracted to it... but the lore and the game mechanics even the community reception piques my interest. I can basically give you all the lore/gameplay mechanics/characters and reception it has and we can come up with a script of what to do. I mean, I know you are not a fan of jump scares and what not but that's okay, I can just walk you through it and give you the details while you can do the animating and scene scripting. I just wanna see a FNAF parody in your style and it'll be fun for the both of us to do so. Wanna do it? If you can't then that's totally fine, we can schedule it on a later date if you prefer.

Damn now you made me think.
So they sell the animatronics at the end of the third game, so I'm imagining a commercial where tehy try to sell them by trying to give the diffrent purposes, like an alarm clock.
Like, at night they're programmed to put human forms into the animal suits, so like now they're programmed to only go into night mode when it's morning, so then they jump scare people who are still sleeping and forcing them into a suit, in this case their regular clothing.

And like the salesman wans to create more of these haunted suits, so starts experimenting if he can kill moer kids that that'll haunt more items, so he kills a kid with a toaster to try and get a haunted toaster, toguh nothing happens... Until the end of teh video when the toaster suddenly jump scares him and tries to force the salesman into a diffrent toaster as well...

Ah, stupid thoughts.

No no that's great! Advertisement to sell and reproduce anamatronics for different purposes such as alarm clocks, video game buddy, maid, ect, until they eventually make so much more that they overpopulate and rule the world. That is until the Nightmare Anamatronics comes to save the day and like the A-Squad, they kick ass and bring balance to the world by destroying the anamatronic army.

I don't know, there's already so many parodies of five nights of freddy, I have no inspiration.
And not sure if you can help, you have a very diffrent sense of humor thenI have.
