Kiribian: Billy-ID by JovialNightz

First off, Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! Yes, I'm Irish as my maternal grandmother was Irish.

Second, my birthday (which was March 2nd) went very well. My family and I went to Dave & Busters back on March 5. I went there to win, and boy, did I win big time - over 2000 tickets that day alone as a matter of fact! I had a great time there that day.

Now I got some news involving Sonic. Sonic forces his way onto new-gen consoles with Sonic Mania coming out within the next few months. Having already pre-ordered the Collector's Edition of Sonic Mania for the PC a few months ago, I also ordered a second Collector's Edition of Sonic Mania last night - that one being for the PS4.

Plus, earlier today, I found out what Project 2017 will be named, and it turns out that I deliberately just mentioned the name in this journal entry already - Sonic Forces. Both Sonic Forces along with the Collector's Edition of Sonic Mania will be out for the PS4, Xbox One, the PC, and the new Nintendo Switch. How amazing that the Switch, which was released on March 3, was released just hours after I turned 27! With a $300 price tag, however, I'm going to wait until Nintendo drops the Switch's price a little bit. Price dropping was one of the factors of how I got my Gamecube back in late December of '03.

Now, I thought I'd update this to let everyone in on the status of Sonic Mania. SEGA pushed its release date back from this spring to this summer. This actually delights me because this proves that SEGA is learning their lesson about rushing titles out the door. Back in October, after reading a GameInformer article about why Sonic has not been doing well in recent times and SEGA's plans to fix these problems, I learned that some of the reasons include SEGA being woefully understaffed after many people (including Yuji Naka himself) left the company and the fact that titles were given tight deadlines, typically for the holiday rush, despite SEGA being understaffed. These two reasons actually parallel the reasons for the Crash of 1983. So I'm very pleased to have proof that SEGA will not release Sonic Mania until they are 100% certain that there are absolutely no flaws that will disorient cameras, damage controls, or spoil the game's quality. It really seems that SEGA had been a little too faithful to their mascot. Sonic is not someone who likes to wait, but as for me, I never say I can't wait when it comes to something like this. I only say it when it's to prevent something disastrous from occurring. Rather, I say that I look forward to it. Besides, in most cases, you know what they say. Good things come to those who wait.

Plus, some exciting news for my fellow Wheel of Fortune fans. For those who have yet to know about it, a virtual reality Wheel of Fortune game is in development for the Google Cardboard, an affordable virtual reality headset. I have no word on whether this game will also be out for the Playstaion VR or Oculus Rift. All I have at the moment is this video of the game in development. For a prototype, it looks pretty good so far.


Finally, I've been working on a few special drawings. I just have to finish up one more of these drawings, and then I will open up a couple PayPal commission slots. That should be well before this month comes to an end.

Game Shows (esp. Wheel of Fortune)

Classic Rock (esp. Boston and Bon Jovi, the latter who by the way is exactly 28 years older than I am)

Marital Status: Single (and I'm keeping it that way)

Love Life: Despite my marital status preference, my love life consists of Sonia, Amy, Cosmo, Zooey, Tikal, Jani-Ca, and the other heroines from the Sonic series as well as my Sonic OC gals (They all feel like family to me).

What I don't like: Racism, misogyny, misandry (there's WAY too much of that), or bias. I will not tolerate sayings or actions that state that there are such things as superior/better/weaker races or gender. They're not fair!

MP3 player of choice: 64GB iPod Touch
Favourite cartoon characters: Ladies from most Sonic, Disney, and Warner Bros. series
How I feel about others: I feel like all else's lives matter more than mine, but that's one reason why I help them.

How I feel about Sonic: If others hate Sonic, fine, yeah, whatever the [BLEEP], but if they try to make me hate Sonic, :iconnogoodplz:.
