For the Balloon team, I'd use Balloonitics as the name. For the Western themed team, I'd add in the armadillo from Rolling Western, and name it something like the Long Arm of the Law, or the Western Warriors.
For the EarthBound team, the obvious choice is Chosen Ones. For the demon team, a really bad pun would be Hellraisers. Instead of Baby Yoshi, what about Pichu? It's not just a baby form of a character, and has had exposure with babby-minded entertainment before, like the Pichu Bros. shorts.
One team I'd make is a music themed team with Mike, Jimmy T. and the disco guy from Pokemon Colliseum, Miror B. But that's just because Miror B. is awesome.
With the Pilotwings character (I'd use Lark so Nester could sneak in), I'd team him up with the Waverace and 1080 characters for a sports themed team. Call it something cheesy like the Sportsmen or something.
For Doshin's team, I'd add in a Cubivore or Animal Crossing rep, since those are Nintendo's other sim games. Perhaps Tom Nook or Totokeke?
The obvious choice for the Kirby team is Prince Fluff. For a name, Warp Star Warriors?
Thanks! I went back and made a few changes to hit on your suggestions. Glad somebody else cared enough about this trite fanservicey crap
As a general plot, I was trying to think of a major enough villain in the Nintendoverse that would make sense attempting to "conquer" all the worlds. Does Dark Matter fit the bill? It's the best villain I could think of that wasn't treading on too many toes and made sense as a big enough force that everybody would want to stop it/control it.
Back when I was 14/15 I had the same idea to make Dark Matter the villain. Of course, this was back when my idea of a Nintendo crossover plot was basically a mix of Kirby 64 and Milky Way Wishes with a few Smash Bros. mainstays thrown in.
nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: I'll post my Direct impressions soon, but I need a little time to gather my thoughts.
