    Oh I see. Yeah, it certainly influenced people, and not in a good way.

    Xenocrisis and Tanglewood are two examples. The commercial success of Paprium's pre-orders, the positive media attention it garnered at first, the consumer interest. I think you're massively underselling how influential Paprium was

    Maybe. I don't know about Xenocrisis but I think Matt would have created Tanglewood even without Paprium. But it's true it showed creators that a lot of people were willing to invest and preorder new MD games, at least back then.

    To be fair, I do remember asking Matt directly if Paprium and Pier Solar were part of the reason that motivated him to to create Tanglewood for the Megadrive and if I could mention that in a video.

    I don't remember his exact words, but he did say yes :P

    Anyone who's watched your videos can probably imagine the sound of you uttering this phrase. Nice video on that KOF bootleg, by the way. And do try to keep your head from exploding!

    2) Sullivan is a classic troll and should be banned.

    I really want to see admin step in here and get a grip on things.
    100%! Lock that shit it's a disgusting disgrace. There are other places people can go for discussion of politics, religion, etc.

    Discussion about banning politics & religion threads, and getting rid of Off Topic, started here:

    https://www.sega-16.com/forum/showth...sing-Off-Topic

    Would welcome feedback. And if you're gearing up to go First Amendment, note that "free speech" is a canard here -- doesn't apply to privately-owned forums, and Melf can decide that he wants us all to wear tutus before being allowed to post if he so chooses.

    Back to Paprium! -- if one can get back to something so...vapor-y.

    I'm locking this thread. If/when there's real news, there will be something to discuss. As it is, this thread has meandered on for hundreds of pages with no real substance.
