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.
Nester the Lark: ^ Reminds me that Xanadu Next also had a randomly-generated post-game dungeon. You needed to go into it many times, getting a little further each time, but it was different every time you re-entered. It was very grindy. I never did finish it.

nocturnal YL: DIVA FT Meiteki Cybernetics EXEX perfect. Finally got it.

Spud: Lol, Imagine spamming a sleepy little forum like this.

nocturnal YL: I have a tendency to dislike a game because it's popular, or at least, I give popular games a harsher, more critical look.

Nester the Lark: ^ I think I do something similar in that I tend to favor less popular things. It's not something I do intentionally or even consciously; I think it's just part of my personality.

nocturnal YL: Official pairings in games sometimes surprise me. Like <spoiler> in BLUE REFLECTION 2. Or Astrid and Makalov in Fire Emblem 10 which is less shocking but still unexpected. For a non-romantic example, Meta Knight and Dedede in KF2 work so well together.

nocturnal YL: BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light is a… shocking experience. I'm at the start of Chapter 9 (so 3 more to go), and considering the side quests and maxing out character Talent Points, I'm about 70% done.

nocturnal YL: I'll say this: I'm glad it's not a popular game. I don't need to worry about spoilers. Is it worth playing? Yes for story, no for other elements. An overall huge yes for me, because I really like the story so far.
Apr 18, 2022 12:15:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Almost anything I can say is spoiler, and I really think it's best to jump into it blind, not even reading the official website. I'll probably write a review on it, so stay tuned.

nocturnal YL: I was done with BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light… two days ago, actually. It's quite difficult to put my thoughts in words, but at the same time, it's similar to what others would say about the game.

nocturnal YL: My old computer died, on the same day I got my new one. The timing isn't exactly a coincidence, as it started showing symptoms a long time ago. I got very lucky that I did my backup and bought the new PC today. (Game review about 1/3 done, by the way)
Apr 24, 2022 15:10:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Now I'm not sure if I should post the review as is. I basically typed out the whole story, but that's exactly what I don't want potential players to read.
Apr 25, 2022 10:39:45 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Writing too little would make it difficult to appreciate why is the story good, but writing everything out would defeat the point. Umm…
Apr 25, 2022 10:40:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And it's done! I decided to cut most of the story and only leave in a few examples. The cut part is even longer than the full review, but if anyone wants to know the story they should play the actual game or at least watch videos of it.

Nester the Lark: I like that we keep posting cameos, even though Fry has no intention of ever updating the site again. But I guess the forum is still an archive.

Shrikeswind: Looks like it's been a minute since TV Eye's been here, so I'll go post that in the thread as well. It looks like he made it to around the halfway mark, but now it's been 4 years.

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio.
