Love the Olimar... but I'll have none of this "Pikmin 2 is too long" daftness. I like having a game it's taken me ages to complete. I finish most of them in a weekend (if that)... having a game I can keep coming back to with new challenges is something I love and want to see more of.
And don’t tell me you weren’t expecting this, probably the most obvious of all, this picture in particular ended quite fugly. My bros always told me that pikachus doesn’t have a neck and that that’s why it look so strange, but I think its something in the face, I was planning on redo this Pikachu pic, but it might be latter.
And Icymatt my previous pic for the bug warrior was Mr. Game and Watch, he didn’t make sense and he just got there thanks to Melee (besides is stupid to ask for new Game and watch games ever generation which is also one of the points of the 15 warriors), so Olimar is a much better choice. And yes the Rare sell affected greatly this project, but I think both Sami and Marth make much better choice for the Chosen 15 (I will post a pic with all the rejects latter).
And fry, there are some games that are, at least to me, to long, good examples are Banjo-Tooie, Harvest Moon a Wonderful life, and Pikmin 2 mainly because I lost interest midway thought the game, I might return to them some time (right now I just returned to Metroid prime 2) but with Pikmin I doubt I ever will get the last special movie, even thought I did save Hocotate fright, even if the President reminded me of my boss (maybe that’s why I don feel compelled to continue playing, if you know what I mean )
“Revenge is always good, unless someone is taking ravenge on you“
Stanley the Bugman could have been Bug as well Forgot about him, didn't you?
As for Pikachu, he's always a weird one to draw. I always draw him really stubby with no neck at all... basically a ball with a face, limbs and tail:
My Steel/Dark suggestions... Samus would have made a good Steel... but my vote goes to Sukapon... or ROB the Robot! And Dark... why... there's your Mr. Game & Watch category right there
EDIT: As for long games... I like them in moderation. If all of my games were as long as Pikmin 2 then I probably would tire of never getting to the end of a game. After all my complaints that Nintendo games are, on the whole, short experiences - I still haven't gotten around to completing the longer ones: Eternal Darkness, Metroid Prime 1+2, Pokemon Colosseum and Pikmin 2 are sitting unloved. But sometimes a game grips me until the end... Marios and Zeldas usually.
You know, a good candidate for Ice other than Samus would have been Mia from Golden Sun. I've yet to fully play the game (only the introductory stuff), but if I'm not mistaken, her element is Ice. Then, if Dark and Steel were included, Samus could nab the Steel position, and Dark would be left to, as Fry suggested, Game and Watch (though a more "evil" hero would be better)
Edit: You know, now that I think of it, Takamaru would've been much cooler as a Steel Warrior
Edit 2: And I just realized I correctly guessed Wario for Poison ;D *natch times two*
Mario was an obvious choice, but Luigi not so much; still, if you look at the bros personalities, I think their fit. Now I should mention a few of the reasoning as to why my pics for every elemental warrior:
1) The list is based on the cast from the original SSB (minus Jigglypuff, which I feel doesn’t fit in the cast)
2) Every character represents a popular Nintendo franchise (Luigi could represent the Mario spin-offs)
3) I didn’t chose any obscure characters for the lineup only Nintendo most popular ones (most of Fryguys pick make more sense than mine element wise, but is mainly comprised by obscure characters)
4) I only chose main characters.
5) Every of the represented franchises must have possibilities for a sequel (that’s also why I stayed away from obscure franchises or ones without possibilities of a sequel like Mr. Game and Watch)
6) Every character is Owned by Nintendo (or at least Co-owned)
Now with all this said, I would like to hear your pics for both Steel and Dark, and I Might do the characters that most people agree with. My personal pics for these elements are:
-Steel: Ray legend (from Custom Robot) -Dark: Pious (from Eternal Darkness, that’s of course if Nintendo still owns the franchise)
You could also make some changes, like Making Samus the steel warrior, but in that case provide a substitute.
“Revenge is always good, unless someone is taking ravenge on you“
You know, I was thinking the other night that you might make the Bros. a pair for one element, either Fire or Water (they chuck fireballs or they fix pipes), but then I realized you might do this instead. Bravo, flint. I really enjoyed this series, as you could tell! ;D
Personally, I feel Samus could've been the ghost warrior or shadow warrior, because she's a bounty hunter, and they hide in the shadows...and then there was that phazon stuff...but Falcon wouldn't have fit most anywhere else...So, she's good where she is.
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.
Sept 4, 2022 11:30:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
Sept 19, 2022 8:55:44 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s

nocturnal YL: I'm about to start on my next review video. I'll use the same 1080p-in-1440p format (so that the caption is separate from the game clips), and I'm wondering if I can make better use of the left and right edges. I probably can't think of anything though.

Nester the Lark: Apologies for my silence lately. I have a lot going on IRL right now.
Oct 17, 2022 8:32:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm not busy or anything, but I don't really have anything substantial to say either. I'm in Fire Emblem mood now, playing Warriors 3H and really looking forward to Engage, but I'll save discussions for later.

nocturnal YL: Also in case people don't read Nester's Twitter, his issue is that he has lost Internet connection after moving to a place no ISP seems to serve.
