It may come as a surprise to many of you here that I hadn't really played Nintendo games before the GCN. My Cube not only exposed me to newer franchises like Animal Crossing and Pikmin, but also older ones like Metroid and Wave Race. Yes, that's right... I had never really played a Metroid game before Metroid Prime. I had also never played a Punch-Out!! game until... well, a few days ago when I learned that NOE's Animal Crossing site had a code generator for the NES game in the series. I've been playing it pretty much non-stop since.
I don't think I can adequetly explain how much I wish I had discovered Punch-Out!! years ago. It's not just a great game for the NES... It's simply a great game. One that I really wish Nintendo hadn't forgotten years ago. Really... I think Punch-Out!! could easly compete with the other boxxing games out there now. Infact, I think it'd be really nice if Nintendo managed to get EA Sports Big to continue the series.
I really wouldn't want to substitute the fantastic comedy lineup of Punch-Out!! with EA's army of licenses. There's nothing funny about punching a Chinaman UNLESS he's a horribly disfigured stereotype! Am I right, or am I right!? ;D
Am I the only one who found the Arcade version of Punch-Out enjoyable, but very, very easy? And it's not like I'm generally good at Arcade games, since my hands seem to be on the fence between dexterity and...something like Parkinson's disease.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
