An interestimg note about Drill Dozer from Miiverse
When you first start up the game it actually has a European language selection and the credits apparently have NOE involvement in them as well, so it appear the the PAL VC version is in fact a unreleased Euro ROM of the game.
(Also it does have rumble support if your wondering).
In NA, they finally released a bunch of games with light gun support.

I did play Mini-Land Mayhem! And I hated its final boss. I just can't beat that level without taking damage.
What's worse is that it only uses Mario characters (minus Wario). I can get Sonic and Ryu getting passed over, but why on Earth are (c)Nintendo characters like Link and Samus getting passed over?
Because this is still a Mario game. If anything, the character lineup looks more like a generic Mario spinoff than before. This looks like another game that has fallen victim to Nintendo's "stop making anything original and stick to our standard" requirement on Mario spinoffs.
The thing is though, is that NCL is more pushing this as an amiibo game than a standard Mario spinoff. I think as an amiibo game, there should be much greater variety than what we'd see in a regular MvsDK.
That's kinda lame... it would have so cool to see Mini Toy versions of Nintendo characters... imagine that... Mini Samus, Mini Link, Mini Isabelle, Mini Inkling, etc. But no, we get generic robot toys... why call it "Mini Mario & Friends" or even "amiibo Challenge"?
On the Wii U eShop, Super Mario Advance 1, 2 and 4 (with e-Reader content) have been released in PAL regions. There is also a special deal, if you buy two of them, the third game is free.
Now is it worth buying GBA versions of SMA 1 and 2 (and getting the SMA 4 free which I already own on and the only new content being the e-Reader levels) or it worth buying the original NES/SNES versions?

SNES Super Mario All-Stars > GBA Super Mario Advance series IMO
GBA has washed-out graphics, worse resolution and worse audio, and 1 (SMB2) and 2 (SMW) don't add enough new contents to make the GBA version great. Maybe you'll want the GBA SMA2 for different Luigi physics, but otherwise it's not too outstanding.
At least SMA3 and SMA4 have new levels. The first two don't.
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.

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.

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.)

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…
