We knew about Obsidian, but looks like Microsoft is also acquiring InXile.



Unless one of the other post-Interplay splinters is still around, I think that means all of the former Black Isle is now reunited under Microsoft (though by now I'm sure tons of the individual names have drifted elsewhere)

I didn't believe that was actually real until the end, and until I noticed WB posted it.

That's... wow. I shouldn't want to see that as much as I do.

I really appreciate Nintendo's recent willingness to get weird as hell, even with some of their most important properties. It almost reminds me a little of Sega during the Dreamcast period, only with Nintendo it's coming from a position of strength.

Don't know Tornquist, but that sounds very interesting!

Something called Sega Heroes just went up on iOS/Android. It calls itself an action RPG, but it looks more like a match-3, probably heavily gatcha'd, but that's to be expected.

Supposedly it has Phantasy Star people in it so I guess I'm obligated to download it and then get mad when they turn out to not be my Phantasy Star people. Kids these days.

Meanwhile, the Sega Ages version of Phantasy Star has been delayed again with no date announced. Womp womp.

Bah, that's lame. I need to watch you stream that old thing. ('course the new assists in the Sega Ages version will undoubtedly make it far easier or at least far less annoying/old-feeling.)

...proper OG Phantasy Star characters are all over this Sega Heroes thing so I guess I'm gonna keep playing it!

I'm digging it. Not sure if I should go with Monkey Ball or the big axe dude. I feel like those heals added up.

Looks like every Sega franchise currently represented in Heroes launches with four characters each, with more to come later. Phantasy Star currently has Alis, Lassic, Rolf, and Wren, so that's cool.

(I probably would've gone Alis, Myau, Nei, and Chaz, but I ain't complaining.)

Needs more PS4. Wren seem pretty awesome, though. I was excited Blaze is an early gimme.

I was excited for the Sega Ages release of Phantasy Star out here, but then I found out that it's not the PS2 enhanced version and I stopped caring as much.

I hope it's good news and not like "see you in February 2019, fuckers!"

If the delay is too long I might just dive into the original.
