Sorry about the large white space; thats the rest of the Paint default size. I dunno how to get rid of it, although I'm sure you could fix the picture if you decide to use it for something. As for another, this is one I brought up in the Kirby cameo page a while back: In Kirby Air Ride, Kirby wears Popo's parka from Super Smash Bros. Melee. You have it listed for Nightmare in Dreamland, but not KAR. Two others I don't have confirmation for: I've heard Electroplankton has soundeffects from Kid Icarus as well as the dungeon theme. Anyone care to deconfirm this? One you've touched on in the forum: The sound Tamagon makes when exiting his egg in Devil World is the same as Yoshi exiting his, I forgot where you talked about this, but IIRC, you confirmed it. If so, why hasn't it been added? Thanks!
1. No, I haven't included the Kid Icarus manual, because I don't need to - I already cover the in-game cameo. I don't tend to include content from secondary sources.
2. I already mentioned the KAR cameo before. I'm unsure about including repeat cameos. I do in one or two places - such as Mr. EAD in the F-Zero series, for example, but I don't like doing it this way. I am considering alternates.
3. I heard the Electroplankton one when the game came out, and after playing it I can confirm... ALL 8-bit sound effects are very similar, and there was nothing in there that sounded particularly "Kid Icarus".
4. That's not a cameo though. Are you suggesting Yoshi is a cameo of Tamagon? After all, Tamagon did it first by 6 years. Yes, the sound-effect is the same, but Nintendo (and a lot of game companies) re-use sound effects, and even graphics, in their games. For one this would have to appear on the Super Mario World page, and second it's not really worthy of a cameo.
1: Fair enough. 2:All right, didn't know you've mentioned it before. 3: Okay, didn't know if this one was true or not. 4:I'm not saying Yoshi is a cameo of Tamagon, but that the fact they both come out of eggs with, apparently, the same sound effect is an interesting side note, if not a cameo of a distinctive sound effect.
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.

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.
