My little opinion regarding SEGA right now...

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 3, 2015, 4:37 AM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


SEGA seems to be one of the most controversial game companies ever these days.

I recently read some news about SEGA's sale figures. Long story short, the sale figures are... not as big as they had hoped. In fact, it's hitting rock bottom hard. They're losing hard against giants like Nintendo, Sony, etc.. Apparently, the switch to mobile platform was a bad idea.

Well, I admit, I'm disappointed with the way SEGA is heading right now. Actually, I'm sad that, after the failure of their Dreamcast console, SEGA had pretty much given up making their own game consoles. As a child, I remember when I played games on the Genesis for the first time. Back then, it was truly mind-blowing, and the Genesis really did what Nintendon't. Nowadays, they focus on making games for the PC and, in a bitter irony considering their decades of rivalry, Nintendo consoles such as the DS and Wii U.

I'm not sure if I want to, or able to, support SEGA these days. :shrug: Like I've mentioned earlier, SEGA has gotten more controversial these days. Three years ago, SEGA caused much flak within the YouTube community by randomly removing videos relating to their game, Shining Force III. The reason seemed to be less about copyright infringement and more about improving search ranking for their upcoming Shining game released for the PSP. Lots of affected YouTubers found their YouTube channels disappear forever because of this. Famous game critic TotalBiscuit is one of these victims; to this day, he still swears to keep boycotting SEGA unless they apologize, to which they still haven't to this day.

And let's not forget, regarding SEGA's main mascot and franchise, Sonic The Hedgehog. I remember reading about Sonic 2006 and how infamously broken it is, being nearly unplayable as a result, and how it nearly killed the Sonic franchise. When I heard about Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, I had hoped that it'll at least help to rejuvenate the franchise in some way. Well, it did... somewhat. Like Sonic 2006, the game itself is also broken -- how can anyone forget Knuckles' infinite jumping? -- along with other bugs found right on the very first day of the game's release which enables players to skip large portions of the game and finish much earlier than they were supposed to. Only the Sonic Boom TV series at least helped to keep the franchise alive. Sonic and the gang's new updated designs for Sonic Boom is also a topic of debate, but let's keep that for another story.

Well, I'm just worried if SEGA can still continue to exist as a company like this. :shrug: Really, what they're doing right now is that they keep digging their graves even deeper. I'm disappointed, because yes, I used to be a SEGA fanboy and enjoyed playing their games on the Genesis, back when they used to be an industry giant that rivaled Nintendo.

Re-add me on Skype?

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 31, 2015, 7:42 AM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


Well, recently, I've unlinked my main Skype account from my old zanoma@tm.net.my Microsoft account, the e-mail itself pretty much no longer exists ever since my ISP, TM Net, decided to kill their e-mail servers. I did that so that I can link it to my Gmail-based Microsoft account instead.

However, this foolish move I did also caused me to lose all of my old Messenger contacts. There appears to be no way to add Messenger contacts; from what I know, the only way I can do that is by using Windows Live Messenger. But Windows Live Messenger is dead... :shrug:

I've been trying to re-add my old Messenger contacts via their Skype accounts one-by-one. So far, I've managed to add a few already, and awaiting them to accept my contact invitation. This does not include my Messenger contacts who already have a Skype account to begin with.

My Skype username is marwan_green_critter.

Migrating my Microsoft account contacts

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 29, 2015, 8:22 PM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


Multiple accounts are a bitch. :disbelief:

Thanks to multiple accounts kerfuffle, and further complicated with the fact that my old zanoma@tm.net.my e-mail no longer exists, I'm pretty much in a dreadful fix in regards to Microsoft and Skype accounts.

My Skype account is currently linked to my ancient zanoma@tm.net.my Microsoft account. I plan to unlink that, but that would also mean losing my friends' Messenger accounts. I do have another Microsoft account, which is marwangreencritter@gmail.com, which is my main Microsoft account I use right now. The problem is that I had already used it to create a Skype account -- it was originally a "super secret" account I use for more private chats between very close friends. Unlinking this Microsoft account also means deleting the Skype account born from it, but that's okay because there's barely any contacts in it, anyway. My plan is to link my current Skype account to this current Microsoft account. The problem now is having to migrate all these Messenger contacts from my zanoma@tm.net.my account to my marwangreencritter@gmail.com account.

I'm not sure if this is happening, but if you see any notifications that someone from marwangreencritter@gmail.com added you on [Windows Live] People, that's just me transferring old Messenger contacts one-by-one. ^^;

I had to do this because, recently, I upgraded my computer to Windows 10, and I decided to set my computer to log-in via my Microsoft account. And I want to keep it consistent by having my Skype account linked to this account instead of my old zanoma account. Man, I wished that there's a much easier way to transfer contacts between accounts. :disbelief:

Chase for the ball by MarwanGreenCritter
Chase for the ball
Commission for :iconfirewolf66:. He wanted a pic of me and his character chasing after the soccer ball, towards the viewer. This is the result. :XD:

This is the first commission I've drawn using Clip Studio Paint, and I'm proud of the result. =)

How does your character originate?

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 25, 2015, 5:07 AM
Marwan's deviantART Journal


Everyone has to start out from somewhere. No one can suddenly thought-up an original character design on the spot. In fact, I noticed that many original characters were based or inspired from other people's characters, or they originated as fan characters before the creators then make them completely original. (For example, someone may create a fan character based from one of the Pokemon species, but then later eventually make them original species, no longer connected to the Pokemon franchise anymore.) Fidget, the nimbat from the game Dust: An Elysian Tail, appeared to be hugely inspired by Foxglove, a one-off character from the Disney animated series, Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers. (It's no secret that Dean "Noogy" Dodrill is a huge fan of Foxglove; I've seen Noogy's website before around 14 years ago, and many of the pics he had drawn then are Foxglove fanarts.)

Myself, believe it or not, my fursona Marwan originally started out as a Terriermon expy, with a little bit of Gatomon (that long-tail bit) thrown in. This original design, minus the long tail, can be seen with my alternate fursona, Lobes; in fact, Marwan and Lobes were originally one and the same character until I start splitting them apart, forking the design as two separate characters, with Marwan focused more on long tails, while Lobes focused more on overly long floppy ears. Hence why Lobes is also my fursona, though I never actually used him for RPing; just acknowledging that he's my fursona, that's all.

So, how does your character originate? What inspired your character designs? And yes, even if your character is a fan character. =P I don't think it's shameful to admit how your characters came to be the way they are now, and where their big inspiration came from. I'm just fascinated with the origins of these characters.

Well, I'm afraid that that era has long gone. ^^; Nowadays, I write music under my fursona's name instead, and I use FL Studio. Though, I still occasionally use ModPlug Tracker, mostly to screw and experiment around with old tracker music people create.

You can listen to my newer tracks at soundcloud.com/marwangreencrit… =) Sometimes, I post them on my YouTube page as well.
