Hello There, Wazzupguys Here. and today, i'll bring you the Monthly Announcement.
Considering this is my 1st ever Monthly Update. it will be much shorter than usual.
1. since Ootwar is taking a break i'm considering to add more users to this wiki from other wikis so they could help this wiki and Dream Fiction Wiki.
2. Project Synergy had some users applications, but over all, it woule be recommended to more users from other users to join. if any of you have wikis not listed within the Project, feel free to suggest them.
3. i'm also considering to add more features to this wiki and Dream Fiction Wiki, inspired by the ones on wikis such as: Ideas Wiki, Random-ness Wiki, Fanon Wiki and Fantendo.

Hi, this is Driller from the administration team.
Looks like another year has ended on the Dream Logos Wiki. I hope you all had an amazing 2018, and welcome to 2019. I've been doing these monthly update cards for over a year now, starting last year. Just see how much I made an improvement by looking at last year's! Last year I made a big change as the high school era ended with my graduation in June, getting a new computer, and even going on vacation for three weeks.
Chuhou Joutai's development has been going pretty slow, as I've only got the entire first stage done. I need ideas on how the bosses should play out. I've already got the ideas for the first three bosses, and the last two. You can watch gameplay through my Instagram page! I barely had time to work on the game during the semester, as school and other stuff got in the way, and I almost flunked out of the Hurst. What caused this was I had the same teacher for College Algebra and Digital Logic & Computer Organization. His tests were harsh as he does a lot of short answer, which I hate.
However, I will have a playable demo once I get the first three stages done, and I'll release a video on YouTube showing the gameplay of the entire first stage. The game will start on PC through Steam, and will eventually get a Nintendo Switch port in the future.
Not to mention that I am actually moving this month. I was originally going to move to the dorm at Mercyhurst University last August but I couldn't because my parents couldn't afford it (it was my brother's fault). I will just be at home for like a week, but then I'll be at the dorm.
What's new in media
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey is heading to the Nintendo 3DS on January 11. Those in Europe and Oceania will need to wait an extra two weeks to get your hands on this game. This remake is better than the original; this was the first Mario & Luigi game I played as a kid, and I remember it well.
Have you been enjoying the "Bowsette" meme? Then look no forward to New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe on January 11!
Kingdom Hearts III, a highly-anticipated title, is coming January 29!
Sadly, there are no major releases to look forward to.
This is Driller signing off and I hope you're enjoying your winter (or summer in the southern hemisphere).
Today, Wikia announced that forum highlights will be discontinued a week from today, on December 19, meaning the Dream Logos Wiki forums will be discontinued and replaced with Discussions. Looks like this will be the last highlight on the Dream Logos Wiki and announcements will take over highlights.
This is a tough call we have to make. We were passionate about the old forums and we are sad to see it go. Please make your final replies on this post before the takeover.
Man, I cannot believe we reached the end of the year, and it's Christmastime once again already. You may notice the theme is a little different rather than the usual Christmas theme. I decided to make this holiday season's theme a little special, and a lot of you might notice the Super Smash Bros. symbol on the card above and the background. We are only a week away from the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch.
What is Super Smash Bros.?
Super Smash Bros. is a long-running game series by Nintendo where you smash beloved game characters off screen. I have played every Super Smash Bros. game up until Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate includes all characters from previous installments, whether they appeared only once or as DLC. While the starting roster will be as small as the first Super Smash Bros. game, new fighters will constantly show up. The "Everyone is here!" campaign may be a one-time only happening, similar to how Midway did this for Mortal Kombat Armaggedon.
Best of all with this game, you can fight anytime anywhere. If you own a Switch and want to battle me sometime online (online pass required), simply friend me using my Switch Friend Code on my userpage.
Will you get Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on day one?
Administration Team Changes
Malachithekidd10 has been retired as a moderator due to lack of activity, so I'm going to have a rollback take that position.
Who will get the moderator rights?
What's new in Media
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the aforementioned title on the post.
Have you played Katamari Damacy or any of its sequels? Look no forward to a remake on the Switch, Katamari Damacy Reroll!
If you've got a PS4, get its port of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds! PUBG was once on PC and Xbox One, now it comes to PS4 (hopefully on Switch in 2019)
December 14:Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is yet another animated superhero film, but I don't know if it will have my great and terrible arch-nemesis in sound effects!
Play as Susumu Takajima or Kagami Ochiai in Minecraft!
We've got some big news so I figured I ought to dust my keyboard off and let all of you know what is going on for the site.
Administration Team Changes
Recently, two of our staff members, being Kislevi031 and Lumogo (one of our bureaucrats), have decided to retire from the administration team, and since our tradition states that one of the three bureaucrat slots cannot be empty, we need one of our admins to step into that role. This will probably be a big change for the Dream Logos Wiki since Bjbarnett2011 and DonaldoC1997 got impeached earlier this year. We can finally balance the admin and bureaucrat count, after Blakley screwed it all up.
Don't forget once a user is promoted to bureaucrat, the promotion is permanent and only staff members or the user themself can remove it. We have a poll to determine who will get the bureaucrat position. The poll will close on November 2, 2018 at midnight UTC.
Who will get the bureaucrat position?
What happened to the Recent Wiki Activity!?
Well, it was Ootwar's fault, she went around and conducted an Order 66 on all the Mil/Main E pages at the requests of the original creators. We also need that page count to go back up to 9,000, so get creative and start making companies! I expect over 120 pages to be created by the end of December!
Chuhou Joutai Development Changes
I have decided to change the way Chuhou Joutai will be developed. I need somebody to draw a better title screen for Chuhou Joutai. However, here are the rules:
Must have a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Use the same art style as the game (you've all seen it before, on the home page and if you follow me on Instagram.)
The game will also be playable in English and Japanese. I also have screenshots of the Japanese version of the game. This will probably become the second Game Maker game to ever be localized in Japanese, with the first being Undertale. Unless you can read Japanese, you won't be able to read them (and if you are, please consider proofing it).
Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun! is coming tomorrow in North America, finally over a decade after the previous western release on the PlayStation 2.
If you've seen the card above, that means Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee is coming on November 16. Both my brother and I will get our copies once it comes out.
For the past four years, I had heavy time constraints placed on the day of the release of a Pokémon game, because I was in my high school's orchestra and I always had a concert that night (generally it was the second of four performances). Thank God I don't have to do that anymore.
Today, you can all see the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate direct at 3PM UTC.
If you want to go on a music-related trip and if you're into Queen, consider seeing Bohemian Rhapsody tomorrow.
Seriously, if you want a more light-hearted tone (and if you've seen the banner leak for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate), I dare you to go see The Grinch on November 9.
If you're into Harry Potter or other fantasy franchises, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is a must-see for you.
If you want to go on a video game trip, Ralph Breaks the Internet is for you. If you haven't seen the first one, consider watching that before this one.
Well, welcome to autumn guys, and I think autumn is really nostalgic for me. Looks like it's time to listen to the soundtrack of Touhou 10: Mountain of Faith nonstop. I don't have much to say, but last week, something tremendous happened on the official Drillimation Instagram page. I just hit 100 followers, so keep that number up! If you guys have Instagram, consider giving me a follow (Jedidiah Cudby already did so, and I want you to do the same). There's also some exclusive art there as well. Chuhou Joutai's development is going rather good! My Instagram details all the development of the game. My Instagram is @drillimation.official!
Also, a new rule of conduct has been enacted, as images of real people as portraits are no longer allowed on the Dream Fiction Wiki, only the URL to them. We cannot determine who's who, and this counts as selfies being uploaded to the site, which is strictly prohibited on the site.
Upcoming games this October:
October 2 - Mega Man 11
October 5 - Super Mario Party
October 12 - Remake of Luigi's Mansion
October 19 - Soulcalibur VI
Don't appear to have any major films coming, though next month one is.
It's hard to believe that summer's already over now! I guess time flies by like an arrow, and school has started once again. It's great for all of us to see our friends, but not so great to have homework every night. It's fun to learn new things, but not so great when we have to study for our tests. Within a matter of weeks, the leaves on the trees will turn from green to yellow to brown. Looks like we've gotta start getting ready for Halloween here!
Also, note that two of our staff members have been inactive for a month. If you are a staff member, please try to stay active as possible. If you are inactive for a month, you will be temporarily demoted until you return. If it happens a second time, you will be permanently demoted. Bureaucrat Lumogo and admin Kislevi03one have been temporarily demoted because of this. They will not be having the administrator privileges reinstated until they return. That does not necessarily mean they are impeached, but will if they return and become dormant a second time.
What about the games for this month? We've got them! Here they are:
September 7 - Spider-Man on the PS4 has been a highly-anticipated game for the platform since the unveiling at E3. My brother's going to get it, will you?
September 11 - NBA 2K19 is the next installment in this long-running Electronic Arts series.
September 18 - Undertale is getting its official Switch port after seeing the Nintendo direct, making it the first Game Maker game to hit a Nintendo console. My brother's already played through the game once, so hopefully, I will.
September 14 - If you're in for a dark and serious mood, why not go see The Predator?
September 28 - If you want some animation on your side, consider seeing Smallfoot. Hope you don't run into your arch nemesis! I hope it doesn't flop on launch day!
Now this is kinda causing a Streisand effect, but for a good reason. Kaylor, after being impeached from here, tried to form his own wiki and tries to push his commercial-free dominant agenda on our properties (Old Dominion Media assets for example). The Wiki's name is of course, Newer Dream Logos Wiki (newerdreamlogos.wikia.com)
It is unfortunately that time of the year once again. Summer is ending, we will all be going back to school with the start of another brand new school year in a couple weeks. It's nice to go to school if you're tired of sitting at home all summer or maybe wanting to socialize with all those friends you never got to see over the summer. I've got a couple things to say in order to get you back into the school spirit. You've still got another month before you have to do this.
If you didn't hear this way back in June, May 31, 2018, marked the end of an era for The Real Driller, as I'm finally done with high school and I'm now off to college. If you saw some of my latest Instagram posts, Chuhou Joutai is going along very well, though I'm still working on the engine. In fact, you will now see Susumu Takajima and Kagami Ochiai on the home page thanks to a new banner. For those wanting to know, I will be attending Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania, where I am pursuing an IT major and a music minor. I just got home from their summer Create Program, where you get to experience college life for three weeks.
August is meant to be the month of adventure, and as part of their program, I decided to make the pilgrimage to Niagara Falls, which I do every year. The last time I made the pilgrimage was in January of 2017. There wasn't very much snow in the Buffalo metropolitan area. You can say it's kinda like the Mecca of the US and Canada and is best known as the birthplace of The Real Driller on the American side.
Also, the Dream Fiction Wiki is in need of moderators, in fact, two of them. Bjbarnett2011 has finally been impeached after years of making our lives live in a world covered in a red mist.
Have you visited Niagara Falls before?
If you've never been to Niagara Falls before, consider making the pilgrimage. Over 30 million people visit the falls every year.
Anyways, here are some of the new games that are coming this August:
On August 3, a new installment in the WarioWare series, WarioWare Gold, is finally coming to Nintendo 3DS. Remember when the WarioWare games were launch titles for the Nintendo DS and Wii? Really a good time if you want to get back into the WarioWare games.
The HD remaster of Okami is also coming to Nintendo Switch on August 9.
Electronic Arts has got more with Madden NFL 19 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 10.
Remakes of the first two Shenmue games from the Dreamcast finally hit the shores of the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 21 after two decades.
Now I know what you're thinking. "Kaylor (Bjbarnett2011) didn't do anything wrong, right?" "He's the founder of the wiki." Well, me and a couple of admins have had a problem with him ever since we joined this wiki, to the point where one of us even founded a similar wiki to avoid him. Here's only a small list of what he did:
He has forced the whole Kaleidoscope Promo meme for too long, which resulted in, if I recall correctly, over two thousand pages. And people say we are not allowed to spam, even though this guy is allowed to do whatever he wants. (Violation of Rules of Conduct § 7)
Speaking of forcing stuff, he once attempted to turn EVERY CHANNEL here into commercial free. (see above for rule violated)
He picks a lot of fights, not even that but edit wars.
He removed protection on several of my pages without my consent. (Violation of Rules of Conduct § 8)
He deletes all content directing towards him in at least a bit of a negative way or spams it with alternative accounts trying to "fix it" to his liking (Violation of Rules of Conduct § 1 and also the earlier-mentioned Policy)
So a while ago, I got into contact with Fandom Staff and a person adviced me to hold a public discussion in this community to voice people's opinion (aside from Kaylor's because he will eventually screw this election over). I will not make a poll as of now, as to comply with their requests. This discussion will be open for about a week and if Kaylor deletes this, he will only prove my point better and I have to put this up again, no matter what.
So, should Blakley be demoted from his bureaucrat role and make space for a better leader (such as CoolGamer23 or Lumogo maybe even me?)? You choose, yes or no.
There have been multiple complaints about him before this that you can take as a reference and I'm listing them here now, and as a bonus, threads where Kaylor is just generally annoying:
Today, Wikia has updated their navigation bar and smoothened the edges of some buttons, giving a cleaner, sleeker look. We hope you enjoy the new site. For the previous one, we had to make some tough calls. Like when most things get retired, we're always passionate about the previous thing, but sadly, that has to go.
Yesterday afternoon, Drillimation experienced their third server failure within two years and we lost data. This happened due to a defective Wi-Fi card on my new PC that I got two weeks ago. The computer had to be replaced which means I will have to reinstall all of my software. Thankfully I had all of my data backed up because I back up everything.
Luckily, this was all under the warranty, so I was able to get it replaced.
It's great to see you all on this Canada Day, and the greatest month of the year. It's also festival month (hence Susumu Takajima and Kagami Ochiai), where it's a popular event in Japan for thousands of people to dress up in yukatas and jimbei
If you've seen my recent Instagram posts (http://instagram.com/drillimation.official), you may notice on the card I put up I have adapted to a new art style. You might also notice that I now draw the characters with necks. Chuhou Joutai has officially begun development over two weeks ago, and I'm still working on the introductory cutscene. I've also written a debug menu to make development easier. I am using Game Maker Studio 2 as my engine, with programs such as GIMP and Paint.NET being used for the sprites and artwork, and Open ModPlug Tracker being used for the soundtrack (Famitracker is also used).
I'm going on my next odyssey next week, and unlike my Canada odyssey last year, this one is three times longer than my previous odyssey. That's right, I'm going on vacation for three weeks, and this is the first time I have written a monthly update from my new computer, since I've had it for two weeks now. If you haven't read my blog post about this (User blog:CoolGamer23/I got a new computer!), consider reading it now. For this odyssey, I will be living in a dorm with a roommate, who is from eastern Virginia near Washington DC.
Due to events that occurred over the past month, and especially with Caturrisi and IP ranges being banned on the Dream Logos and Fiction Wikis, you now have to have an account to edit. Registering is not difficult, and it takes less than a minute.
Back to the entertainment world, here are some of the things that are coming this July:
On July 13, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
The upgrade for Sonic Mania, Sonic Mania Plus, is coming July 17.
Mega Man X Legacy Collection and the Xbox One version of No Man's Sky are coming July 22.
What about films?
Ant-Man and the Wasp is hitting theatres July 6. Sadly, that's the only major film on the list.
I apologize if this is not an appropriate topic to highlight, but this is pretty much big news in regards of media consolidation and stuff.
Today, merely an hour ago from when I post this, the Department of Justice announced approval of the 21st Century Fox acquisition by The Walt Disney Company, meaning that studios such as Fox Searchlight, Blue Sky, Fox Television Animation (aka the Family Guy and Simpsons dudes) and most importantly, 20th Century Fox, will be going under Walt Disney Studios and Disney Media Networks, along with other minor details. All that Disney really had to do was dispose of Fox Sports Regional Networks and that's it, antitrust stuff is done with.
How do you feel about this odd change in media dominance? Do you think Disney will restrict mature Fox-like movies majorly or will they become more open minded? Please discuss below.
Welcome to summertime, after a long winter and school year, and both the Dream Logos and Fiction Wiki are the best time to spend the most wonderful time of the year.
I have a lot to say, and I have FINALLY finished high school. Since that I'm now an adult and in college, I may be less active due to annoying chores. Anyway, here are some of the games you should be looking forward to this June:
Mario Tennis Aces is coming to the Switch on June 22.
The Nintendo Switch ports of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus are coming on June 29!
And what about films? Better see these on these dates:
The Incredibles 2 is coming June 15, finally after a 14-year hiatus. Really a good way to relive your childhood!
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is coming on June 22.
This is Driller signing off.
