What happened /v/?
I always feel like console gaming/gaming in general went to shit after Sega exited the console market/stopped giving a shit.
Why are they so damn xenophobic? Sega was founded in America..Where are my damn localizations? I heard rumors of Sammy being ran by a high ranking Yakuza..would that explain all of the yakuza games that got green lit while games like shenmue hd/PSO got shafted?
Poor management, internal politics, xenophobia, racism, just about everything that went wrong, went wrong.
Oh and you have a stupid fucking lying psychotic nigger on YouTube and gaming forums screaming that SEGA will come back as "SEGA Orbi Enterprises."

The fuck is that? Care to elaborate anon?
There's actually a pretty interesting (if shittily written) book on the Sega / Nintendo rivalry during the 16 bit era called Console Wars by Blake Harris. The main takeaway from it is that Sega of Japan got SERIOUSLY jealous when Sega of America made the Genesis a huge success here and started demanding more control over hardware and software decisions. Remember that Yuji Naka actually left SOJ because he couldn't deal with their bullshit and SOA set him up with his own studio here to make Sonic 2. The book has tons of anecdotes about SOJ making just totally fucked up, idiotic business decisions and SOA president Tom Kalinske having to deal with them.
>Sega of Japan got SERIOUSLY jealous when Sega of America made the Genesis a huge success here and started demanding more control over hardware and software decisions.
Why are they such fucking babies? I'm sure if SOA were in charge we would see a lot more interesting titles from them.
Thanks for the book recommendation btw.
And then Yuji Naka more or less killed Sega Technical Institute, which killed the Saturn in the US because WHOOPS. NO SONIC XTREME.
Sega shitting the bed has mostly to do with Kalinske being the only person at Sega who wasn't a retard.
Who's that big-headed dude with sunglasses in the second row?
>mfw I know the rest
Some major characters still missing
Sega is like ubisoft of japan.
Talented devs make great games and horrible executives from hell drives all those games into fucking dirt with retarded decisions and policies.
I duno, shit's sad.
His last game at Sega was PsyPhi, which was canceled after it was actually finished.
His last game in general was Shenmue City, which was a mobile game. It was a neat one though, but it ended a while back.
Not this shit again
Did you forget how they localized BB and PSU?
Can't you even tell by SEA version of PSO2?
Western release will be fucking abomination that won't even get the half of content because copyright issues.
Just get translation patch, set up your trusty VPN and roll jap version.
>Console Wars by Blake Harris
>Blake J. Harris is a writer and filmmaker based out of New York. He is currently co-directing the documentary based on his book, which is being produced by Scott Rudin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg. He will also serve as an executive producer on Sony's feature-film adaptation of Console Wars.
>Sony's feature-film adaptation of Console Wars.
>mfw those controller patents got me hyped
I saw it in my local bookstore. I still don't want it. I just think that the book would somehow spin some Sonygger narrative. See Machinima's DMC documentary with the pro-DmC stance.
>I always feel like console gaming/gaming in general went to shit after Sega exited the console market/stopped giving a shit.
Don't kid yourself. SEGA was relevant for exactly one gen. Their rise inflated the Japanese division's ego and those xenophobic fucks thought they could do no wrong. They believe people would eat whatever the fuck they spit out.
>Sony's feature-film adaptation of Console Wars.
Don't worry man. Sony Pictures hates Sony Entertainment as much as Nintendrones hates Sonyggers.
Sony is just as incompetent as SEGA.
>Scott Rudin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg
I found the book to be fairly non-biased, it mostly suffers from Harris inserting his authorial voice a bit too much, and a lot of badly written, Wednesday night sitcom tier dialogue. If you want to get the gist of the book without buying it, look up the Sega Nerds' interviews with Al Nielsen and Tom Kalinske on youtube, they're good stuff.
Why would you want modern day SEGA to touch any of those properties?
Chances are they'll out source them all to some shit tier devs while they pour all their money into Sonic and still fuck it up because they need to rush it out in time for the holiday season.
You have 10 seconds to fire Tom Kalinske because your "bros" at Japan HQ are butt hurt over his success.
How do you fire him? Do you even have the heart to do it /v/?
There's this over 30 year old man child black shit from Texas, who constantly reads any trademarks and patents online, looking for any fucking clue and information of "SEGA's return."
The way he acted on the sega-16 forums, and the dc-talk forums (both filled with idiots), he was trying to act like some messiah preaching the return of SEGA, and some people actually believed it.
One of the trademarks that popped up last year was Orbi. So this guy ended up reading the trademark and read stuff like "cutlery" and "jewellery". What Orbi was in the end was an experimental exhibit SEGA is going to open with the BBC for their "Earth" documentries.
This guy however, was screaming how everything here is "limitless" and believed it's SEGA trying to get into every single market and dominate them to get their "revenge" on Sony. Yes, he constantly uses terms like revenge, trying to make it look like a personal vendetta or something. So he was literally making shit up, saying that SEGA will break away from Sammy and form "SEGA Orbi Enterprises" and they will announce it at E3 2013. Of course, he was wrong, but he snapped and yelled at everyone on SEGA-16 forums saying that they were wrong and he was right.
He's this...extremely autistic manchild fanboy and has been wrong every single time for at least 3 or 4 years. But no, he keeps persisting on it and even threatens people, saying they're trolls who want to see SEGA die, he accused one user of being someone else, with absolutely no proof.
Hell, he got banned on the official SEGA forums, for starting this "SEGA is starting a new console and new company" stuff for years. YEARS, always wrong. ALWAYS WRONG. But he keeps thinking he can't do anything wrong and he's always right. He got banned from SEGA-16 forums for breaking his promises that he will never mention Orbi, again. He was banned from DC-talk for the same old shit.
Anon, you don't have a choice. It's your destiny. The only change you have in the manner is how you do it.
Oh and to add to this, you know what he blammed his banning from the SEGA forums on? He blamed it on two people who were in charge of SEGA in 1995 or something like that. People who have no affiliation whatsoever with this person...they were getting blamed for his actions.
He also screamed that the Playstation 4 doesn't exist, and only Sony fanboys were preaching that, on the Gamespot comments section.
Hell, he blames some of SEGA's problems on "entitled israelite console warriors" for saying they want Shenmue 3 on Playstation and shit like that. Trying to blame people from Israel for SEGA's problems.
It's a huge fucking mess, and this is only part of the story of the bullshit he has done. He goes by tornado1994 on YouTube, MrSega on Sega-16. SegaOrbi, lindbergh2007. He has a ton of nicknames on different sites, and he preaches the same shit and makes up ANYTHING and actually believes it.
Worst part though? Some SEGA fanboys are so delusional, they are willing to believe him, because he is saying the things that they want to hear, even though he has been wrong for years, never right.
Hell, just read the description of this YouTube video, it has everything on this guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZMYXY_0ixo
tl;dr - Psychoic over 30 year old SEGA fanboy misreads trademarks and patents, creates ridiculous lies and stories about video game companies, and preaches them as the second coming of SEGA, wanting "revenge" on Sony.
That is true, but...this guy takes it to another level. This is beyond being a delusional fanboy. This is someone with an actual mental issue.
Hell, if you read the comments for the Orbi trailer on SEGA's Youtube...guess who is making shit up in the comments and doesn't recite any sources.
Shouldn't have tried to start a war with Nintendo. It just won't end well.
Sega tried it. Now they are bankrupt.
Sony tried it. Now they are losing billions of dollars and are a shadow of the company they were before. Sony's stock is actually worth less now than it was worth in 1994.
