FryGuy64, "Revenge of the Gator" doesn't sound right, because the Japanese name has "66" in it. "Charge Ponkotsu Tank" is correct. However, you forgot to put an exclamation point (!) right after "Charge", which would look like this -> "Charge! Ponkotsu Tank".
Oh my goodness, TrusttheFungus has 666 posts! OH NOES.
Anyway, back on topic. HAL's game HyperZone Shares the name with the last level of Kirby's DreamLand 3. Also, one of the stages is Ripple Field, another stage in KDL3.
Ripple Field? That even reminds me of Ripple Star, the second to last world in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
Yours is the Japanese name, mine is the European name. They're the same game. Trust me... I've had Revenge of the Gator for YEARS. How many crocodile-themed pinball games on the Game Boy do you think there are?
The Meta Lance enemy (I think that's the name) looks a lot like that tank as well.
And Blocky and Skully have been in the Kirby games since the beginning, alongside Lolo and Lala. I read somewhere that Sakurai even wanted to include them in the latter Kirby games, like Canvas Curse and 64, but thought better against it. He says on the old Brawl site (w/ the Toukoken) that he was afraid people would be upset at him for using his own characters too much (hence why Meta Knight and Dedede had to wait until Brawl to appear in a Smash game)
Haha, they're using my Pokemon Stadium 2 screenshots ;D That's my old Silver username "MKsilvr" (I also had MKgold - hehe)
But just because it's a Japanese website doesn't mean it's 100% accurate. They speculate and overanalyse, just like everyone here, myself included.
Even looking at that website and translating it (sorry, I jumped to an assumption - though there is a Kirby cameo in Alcahest as well that this site doesn't cover - see Kirby's Rainbow Resort!) I still don't see how there's a relationship between these two featureless blobs. The website mentions Kirby getting a paint ability from it, but doesn't say how that ties in to Card Master. It gives the names of the Card Master enemies, but states the one in Kirby doesn't have a name. And no, the names do not mean "paint" or anything, before you suggest.
Still, nifty website. Wish there were more like that out there for the other franchises.
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.

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: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.

nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
