It was a crisp, sunny day in the Mushroom Kingdom. Goomba kids could be seen running out in the streets in the outskirts of Toad Town, and the Toads themselves were preparing to open up their shops and sell their wares. One Toad was humming a sweet song about his "Toadantine" as he was hanging up today's special badges. Suddenly, a bright red ball covered with spikes bounced near his feet. He leaped in surprise, since it seemingly came from nowhere. It rolled around a bit before sticking into the nearby grass. Grumbling, the Toad resumed his song about his lovely Toad lass, unaware that the red ball was cracking open, and that more red balls were being tossed around the town as stealthfully as possible. It was the beginning of a very weird day for Toad Town...
OK, next up is Smashchu! You have until next Saturday to get your entry in. Have fun!
OH crap, I was the next entry. Been spacing out. Sorry for the lateness.
Natural, when everything takes a turn for the worse, Mario is called in to save the day................................but Mario was on vaction. Heroes need a break sometimes too. Of course, they had to go for the next best thing.
Luigi was awoken from his dream of being confirmed for Brawl when the phone rang. Luigi rolled onto the floor and then picked himself up and picked up the phone. "Luigi Luigi" the Toad said on the other line. "Help, Toad Town is under attack by giant red balls. Since we are toads, we can do anything but run around screaming. HELP UP". "OK" said Luigi "I'll get Mario". "No" replied the toad on the other line "We need YOU". Luigi stared blankly into space. "Luigi..........Luigi are you there". All he could say is "Ahhhh crap".

Was going to make a "change" American Kirby, but I'm not that skilled at Fireworks.
Luigi quickly thought to himself..."What would Mario do?" he wondered. Luigi sighed and realized he had to save the town. He started to get up but was quickly knocked down by a huge explosion! This explosion was caused by a large four-legged monster that seemed out of place. This monster was known as Dialga.
"Mama Mia!" Luigi cried, as Dialga trotted around the place, destroying houses and causing quite an uproar. Everyone was now more worried about this beast, than the spikey balls, which upon closer inspection, Luigi noticed they were Koopa Shells and were being tossed down by Lakitu's.
"What's wrong with everyone!" one Lakitu exclaimed. "They should be worried about the wrath of Bowser, and not some...pocket monster!

Hiding behind a sturdy pile of rubble, Luigi and a small group of Toads listened while the monster raged. Luigi racked his brains, trying desperately to think of a solution. The Toads weren't much help, finding solace in moaning. "We're doomed!" shouted one. "The situation is hopeless!" said another. "Luigi's useless, and no-one else can save us!" moaned a third. For the green hatted plumber, this was the last straw!
"USELESS, AM I?" he shouted with venom. An eerie green light started to emanate from him, and his eyes started to blaze with an inner fire. "We'll see about THAT!" he said, standing up and setting off towards the monster, seemingly growing with each step. The Toads watched him go, each one of them dumbstruck by his sudden change...
Meanwhile, things weren't going well in Bowser's castle either! "WHAT?!" screamed the lizard king at his unfortunate messenger. "T-t-they just aren't b-bothered, your mightiness" repeated the stuttering underling. "They're just t-too busy with this n-new monster to c-care about your l-l-latest campain" "Am I no longer feared?" pondered Bowser. "I blame your recent public appearences" answered his personal PR koopa. "I keep telling you; brand is everything! You need a serious image change. Move away from the whole 'buffoon' angle". "Yeah? YEAH!" agreed Bowser. "I need to be more ruthless! More foreboding! More EVIL! KAMEK!! Get my transport ready! It's time to show 'em who's boss!"
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.
Sept 9, 2022 8:50:55 GMT -5
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...

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.

Nester the Lark: Hey, guys. Sorry for my unannounced-on-the-forum absence. I didn't expect to be gone for so long. But I'm back, and I'll try to get back into the swing of things around here.
