For the first time in ages I'm playing absolutely nothing. Yesterday I competed Monster World IV on the Megadrive and Final Fantasy X on the Playstation 2. I think I'll start playing Snatcher on the Mega CD and Final Fantasy X-2 on the Playstation 2 today. I've got a huge backlog of games to play, so I might try and play three games at once, maybe Metroid Prime 2 or Halo 2.

Majora's mask:I'm in the place to the East. Ironically I started playing this game on Ground Hog's Day. lol
The Sims 2:Uh, Jessica and Bill recently got engaged. Betty and Bob had a baby. And I found out that I need to may attention when Joe's looking for a wife. I didn't realize this girl he met in town was a teenager. Oops.
Donkey Kong 64:Well, I sorta stopped playing cause I got bored with it. The most fun I have with this stupid game is when I listen to the DK Rap...ow well...I guess it ain't that bad.
- Pikmin 2 - almost done - just 3 more dungeons to do... - Zelda Colelctor's Disc - Zelda I done, Zelda II started - intend to play through every single Zelda game in order on my GCN (using GBA Player for GBA games)...

Yikes, I'm not playing anything at the moment!
I should really start on... well, just any game I haven't beaten yet. Which is probably a lot... I think I'll start on Viewtiful Joe again once, and see if I can finally beat Another Joe this time. I must've tried that at least a dozen times, but I still can't do it!

Well, Metroid Prime 2 was the last game I bought, but I haven't played it for a couple of weeks. So, I guess I'm not really playing anything right now. Though, I will be playing Wario Ware Touched next week.
Today I was playing F-Zero Climax on my Game Boy Player, and I was able to get the total rank of #1 in Bronze Cup of Master Class. Then I went on to play Grand Theft Auto Advance [GBA] and completed the Scorned Lover mission from there.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.
