I haven't seen it. Just randomly noticed it while looking for the final part of SA2 Revisited.

Hoo boy, I cannot think of anything I'd want to do less than talk about Star Wars, really not my thing. Skipping this stu*lightsabre swoosh...even though stuff isn't a swear so there's zero to censor. Bad Ian and Kyle*

Anyway, Q&A cliffnotes.

-Explanation for how Mobians were created/came to be in the new universe - they are there, treating like Tolkien, they exist, official word is that the anthros are from different world and interact with earth through portal, Ian not taking that approach himself but seeing how it goes, bad Chewbacca impression here, old continuity explanation does not apply.
-Has Ian thought of resolutions to game cliffhangers eg Sonic 4 E2 or Sonic Chronicles even if they don't appear in the comics - from a fanon approach he supposes, shouldn't go into what he knows of Sonic 4 E3 because it's kind of dicey, Chronicles pretty clearly like some sort of Empire Strikes Back story, Eggman's taken over and you have the party, you'd save the world, not much chance of using any details in the book, not something he's thought about seriously.
-Eggman's relationship with Gerald possibly explored - Ian would love to, but SoJ doesn't want them exploring backstories or showing the game characters as having aged, there are ways around it in other situations but overall probably wouldn't get opportunity to do so.
-Inspiration for Sonic/Mega Man writing - Stories that are told in a good way, immediate and long-term payoff, wide variety of influences, examples like Full Metal Alchemist (original manga & Brotherhood), Steven Universe, TMNT 2012, Star Wars (??).
-Control over artists on arc - bad Chewbacca impression here, no control over artists assigned to a given story, can ask, particular arc coming up where he asked if one particular one could do it and would love it if they could do it, so far working out that way, but doesn't have that sort of clout.
-Championship was happy happenstance, Kaminski threw her into Champions, did a (stop it!) amazing job, bad Chewbacca impression here eventually.
-Sonic comic world building - Look at game content, what it would mean for the world, try to answer unanswered questions, take elements from two cartoons and see how they would fit, "what do games provide or not", can flesh out bits they haven't eg Meropis, Breezie's Casino shows economy, world tour show cultures, lands, politics, situations.
-Series overview/bible - does have one for himself that he's fleshing out, hasn't submitted to editor dues to rambles and bits and typos (planned very far ahead, 3+ years), what it means for the world and characters, how they weave into each other, can't have any concrete growth of characters or expansion of land due to licence, has to find a way of having growth without growing.
-Excited about end of Shattered World because he'll have set up so many regions, characters, plot threads etc that any one could go for a while, like months of prologue up to now, bad Chewbacca impression here.

I actually thought the Chewbacca impressions were pretty good. :(hearty laughter):

I'm a little disappointed that neither Kyle nor Ian mentioned The Force Unleashed when the discussion turned to Star Wars games. That right there was some fine quality gaming!

I only ever played The Force Unleashed 2. I forgot if it was any good.

The sequel was kind of ehhhh... *wiggles hand in a "so-so" gesture* The first one was the one I loved the most.

Well I'll definitely try out the first one. Eventually.

I actually haven't played either of them! I should probably get on that.
