I picked up the UK version of SMA4... but it's rubbish. Without the eReader support, it's nothing more than an easier version of SMB3.
Where's the Ace Coin challenge? On the eReader of course... Where's the new levels? Oh, eReader again... Where's the eReader? Sorry Europe, no eReader for you. Make do with subpar games that were supposed to make use of the expansions.
At least they're putting all the secret eReader stuff into Animal Crossing and F-Zero: GP Legend so we won't need it.
I like SMA4 despite the lack of e-reader support in Australia...
I found the original too hard with the save function - if I can get my hands on the e-reader and the SMA4 cards, I'll play the levels and downright cheat by making Mario and Luigi hammer bros. and doing every level like that!
I will do it I say! You can't change my mind on this - I wanted to be hammer Mario when I first got SMB3 on the NES, and never found the suit until All*Stars - now I want it in every level - it's just something I have to do.
i remember hearing somethign about the e-reader not working on the sp so they redesigned it, but it didnt have the ability to connect to a cube when in an sp.
thats all bollocks tho, as my e-reader fits my sp fine and you can still connect it to animal crossing... its annoying that europe is the only place that doesnt get the e-reader, even australia has it to tie in with them getting animal crossing a good year before europe.
I have the SMA4 cards. I was lucky, I saw them at Best Buy and bought 'em, and the next day they were gone. I've never seen any other packs since then. Then, a while later, as I was looking at my complete collections of cards, I saw I was missing Power Up cards 1 and 2 (which I'm guessing are Super Mushroom and Fire Flower). Then I later heard that to get those two had to buy the game at Wal-Mart! That made me mad.
But anyway, if there was a SMA5, I'd want it to be a remake of either Super Mario RPG or Super Mario Land.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
