Saw this earlier today, and I was rather surprised.
I guess it may have todo with how differentregions see different systems differently. Western fans see the Switch's newfound third party support a good opportunity to discover new games, while in Japan, everyone has a PS4 anyway. There's also the fact that these third party games are often multiplatform sequels to PS4/Vita games.

WayForward announced the fifth Shantae game today.
I'm a little surprised at the announcement. Last I heard, director Matt Bozon wanted to take a break from the series after working on Half-Genie Hero for so many years. Also, how can they make a new one so quickly?
Still, I'm looking forward to seeing more about it, even tho I never bought any of the DLC for the last game.

Wonder Boy Returns is coming to Switch in a "Remix" version.
I love the original Wonder Boy, but I haven't heard too many good things about Wonder Boy Returns. I suppose it's encouraging that Ryuichi Nishizawa seems to have been a little more involved with the Remix, so maybe they've ironed out the wrinkles, but this may be a "wait for reviews and/or a sale" situation for me.

So, the Sega Ages version of Wonder Boy in Monster Land is "coming soon," and will apparently include a "joystick rattle button" option.
If you don't know, you can make money appear in the game by jumping in certain places, but there was a bug in the arcade version where if you jostled the joystick back and forth while doing so, it would give you a lot more money. Players typically abuse this to make it a little easier to get through the game, although it's difficult to do with a d-pad or thumb stick. So now, hilariously, M2 is just adding a button to do it for you! (It can be disabled, though.)

The Kickstarter for R-Type Final 2 is now live, and does, in fact, only last a week. Seems ambitious, but as I type this, they're already nearly halfway to their initial goal, so I guess it's working out. Stretch goals are listed all the way up to US$2.5 million, so let's see how far they get.
Interesting! Hmm.. reminds me of how Nintendo/Game Freak did not patch the Virtual Console Pokémon glitches (excluding exclusive VC ones) even though they can lead to illegally generated Pokémon that can be transferred to Bank if they are the right level and have no invalid moves.
Now, Google referenced Pac-Man's Level 256 glitch in a Google Doodle and people say Nintendo referenced the minus world in Super Paper Mario, and the infinite 1-Up trick has been mentioned I believe; as is the "fight safari zone Pokémon trick"; a variation of the left-facing shore tile glitch in EN, FR, (and partially: ES, IT) versions. Glitch acknowledgement as "tricks" could spin-off to be a topic of its own. ✿

The R-Type Final 2 Kickstarter has just ended with over 8,000 backers and over $900,000 raised. This means that they've reached the stretch goals for recreating one stage each from R-Type Final, R-Type Delta, and R-Type III.
I never contributed myself, and if I did, it would've only been my usual $5. Don't think it needed my help, tho. I'll just get a copy whenever the game comes out (I'm guessing in 2021 or 2022).
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
Sept 19, 2022 8:55:44 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s

nocturnal YL: I'm about to start on my next review video. I'll use the same 1080p-in-1440p format (so that the caption is separate from the game clips), and I'm wondering if I can make better use of the left and right edges. I probably can't think of anything though.

Nester the Lark: Apologies for my silence lately. I have a lot going on IRL right now.
Oct 17, 2022 8:32:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm not busy or anything, but I don't really have anything substantial to say either. I'm in Fire Emblem mood now, playing Warriors 3H and really looking forward to Engage, but I'll save discussions for later.

nocturnal YL: Also in case people don't read Nester's Twitter, his issue is that he has lost Internet connection after moving to a place no ISP seems to serve.
