Alright yeah, that makes sense too, doing the less popular characters first. It's your site, after all. I'm currently working on a write-up for my Ness drawing. It's turning out pretty nice, I think. I would do Ninten as well, but I've never played through all of Mother. I'd be up to doing maybe a placeholder article that could be filled in with plot points later, if that's cool with you.

Heh, guess I'll write for Olimar.
Captain Olimar is an employee at Hocotate Frieght of Planet Hocotate. While exploring new areas in the galaxy, Olimar's ship Dolphin was struck by a meteor and crash landed on a strange planet. The Dolphin broke into pieces while entering the atmosphere. Olimar had 30-Days to gather the parts of his ship before his life support system fails. The situation seemed hopeless until Olimar discovers strange creatures which he names Pikmin after his favorite food, Pikpik Carrots. The Pikmin came in red, yellow, blue, and followed Olimars every command. Whether it be transporting objects or attacking the planet's hostile wildlife.
After recovering all of the Dolphin's parts, Olimar returned to Planet Hocotate. When he arriveed he heard terrible news. A shipment of Pikpik Carrots being handled by Hocotate Frieght newest employee, Louie, was destroyed and now Hocotate Frieght is 10,100 Pokos in debt. Suddenly, a bottlecap Olimar had obtained from Planet Pikmin rolled across the ground. It was worth 100 Pokos! Hocotate Frieght's President ordered Olimar and Louie to return to Planet Pikmin and collect more treasure.
Olimar and Louie discover two new breeds of Pikmin when they return, the white and purple Pikmin. The two astronauts will have to utilize all of their Pikmin's abilities to collect 10,000 Pokos in treasure. But don't worry, Louie and Olimar have an unlimited amount of time to finish their mission.
Trivia Suggestions: *All of the characters in Pikmin are extremely small.(only a few centimeters) *Olimar and Louie are based off Mario and Luigi.
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

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.

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.

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.
