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: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.
Jul 24, 2020 22:46:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
