May or may not be right here, so I'll throw it out anyway... is the red and white rocketship in Fountain: Space Junk Galaxy from Pikmin? It looks really familiar to me...
Never noticed it. If it is one, it's the ship from Pikmin two
-Another one of those music notes. In Deep Dark Galaxy, accessing a pipe on the top of the rocky mass and the note stream inside play the Music from SMW: Dinosaur Island 1
-Toy Time's Purple Coin challenge is collecting 100coins on an 8bit Luigi. On that note, you do go one the 8-bit Mario in Toy Time. It's actually for the second star.
-Not sure if this is a cameo. The Mailtoad will give you a letter from Peach telling you she doesn't know where she is, but is OK becuase Mario is coming to save here. It also has 5-ups she gave as a gift. This is a reference to SMB3, but may be contunilation(or what ever you call it).
Also, with a lot of the music ones, they are in many levels. Also, Toy Time's music is a remake of SMB overworld music.

Was going to make a "change" American Kirby, but I'm not that skilled at Fireworks.
Most of these are in-series continuity, to be honest. The only ones I figured count as cameos would be any references to 8-bit Mario or the music-note challenges (I've had underground SMB, underwater SMB and Super Mario World themes so far!).
It's great that it's filled with music and enemies from older games, but that doesn't make 'em cameos... just long overdue in-series returns.
The Yoshi head MAY count, only because Yoshi doesn't actually appear in the game.

How does no one get that enemies like Magikoopas and Doomships are NOT cameos? It's continuity, Bowser finally took them for spin and sent out his wizards and a Magikoopa lucky enough to get to knock Mario off which is a good hint it's meant to be Kamek. But not a cameo still. Kamek's shared with the Yoshi and Mario games so yeah.
Olimar's ship's the one reference in there.
...I don't even want to go into the purple NES thing.

I did imply that she was Peach's relative, even though it was never implicitly stated.
Also, I don't think the Magikoopa at the beginning was anything other than a standard Magikoopa. But them I'm starting to think YI Kamek was given more status in the US than in Japan, having being given the Japanese name for "Magikoopas" as his own name.
nocturnal YL: Finished the main goal and started the final year. Still have to make powerful items and get the rest of the events.

nocturnal YL: I'll be on a trip to Osaka between the 5th and the 12th. I still travel somewhat regularly, but it's been 4 years since I went to Japan in 2020 and 6 years since I went to Osaka specifically in 2018.

nocturnal YL: Riviera: The Promised Land is getting a remaster on Switch. I was wondering what's happened to it after all those other Dept. Heaven games got Switch versions.
Feb 1, 2024 11:07:45 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'll leave soon. Like before, I'll have Internet connection and will check this place, but I won't bother logging in.

nocturnal YL: I just found out that Atelier Ayesha DX has an out-of-bounds glitch, and it's very easy to get. That's the third game I've found something like that, after Meruru and Firis. There isn't much interesting to see, though. You just fall off and respawn.

nocturnal YL: Almost at the end of Atelier Ayesha DX. Got everything in the base game, but the extras are incredibly difficult.
Feb 18, 2024 14:40:03 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm not sure if I have enough remaining time to prepare for the extra battles (large amounts of items are involved, and restocking takes time). If I can't do it, I'll just end my playthrough. I didn't miss any story contents as far as I know.

nocturnal YL: The synthesis puzzles are fun and a bit difficult, and the time limit is quite tight. It generally feels close to Arland (but more complex). The story and UI aren't good in comparison, but this game is otherwise great. Comparable with Totori overall.

nocturnal YL: Cool. Atelier Ayesha DX has a save data corruption glitch, and now I cannot even start the game.
Feb 20, 2024 12:46:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It happened after I reached the ending. Something was off (the end credits did not show), and I looked around the Extra menu trying to launch it, and bam! Game crashed, and Launching the game now results in a black screen.
Feb 20, 2024 13:13:21 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And I'm 100% sure it's save data corruption. Deleting the save data solved the problem, and restoring it would reinstate the issue.
Feb 20, 2024 13:14:49 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Ironically, I re-joined NSO to protect my Ciel nosurge DX save data, which ended up not needing it. I haven't closed my Atelier Ayesha DX session and have set my save data backup to fully manual. And it's this seemingly stable game that ended up failing.

Nester the Lark: I hope you haven't lost too much.

nocturnal YL: That's the entire save file, about 70 hours of progress, possibly gone. I wrote to KOEI TECMO GAMES about that, but last time I told them about a Firis DX bug they replied "we could reproduce, but game is too old to reopen development", so I'm not hopeful.
Feb 20, 2024 15:23:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I almost 100% completed everything other than the original game's DLC or the Plus features too. Though I guess with better knowledge of the extra bosses, I'll be better prepared in a hypothetical 2nd run. Still prefer a proper New Game+ though.
Feb 20, 2024 15:28:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wow, and after you put all that time into it. That would really sour my impression of a game. Do you plan to redo everything?
Feb 20, 2024 18:17:54 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I think I'll most likely move on for now. Maybe I'll get back to it in the future; I'm thinking about replaying everything in the series at some point (since a few games have second-playthrough-only bonuses), which might be years from now.
