* The game's name, setting and characters are too odd for people outside of Japan to get used to. (Fact?)
I guess the first one isn't quite the case. Strange names? Super Mario World has it. A lot of Kirby games have it. Setting, yes, I'd accept that.
* This is Nintendo's series of video games based on Mah-jong, a Japanese board game popular in Japan, but not well known nor played by many people outside of Japan.(Fact)
Like if Japan is the only Asian country in the world! What are you even thinking about? (Hint: You forgot some important fact about Mahjong)
Famicom Wars series
* The series contained too much text to translate.(Fact)
Why is Famicom Wars unreleased outside of Japan? See Fire Emblem. Except that it doesn't have much text to translate before Advance Wars. Game Boy Wars Advance is, like, the first Famicom Wars to contain assive text.
I'm sorry, but I fail to see how factual are your facts.
nocturnal YL: Not doing an update right now; jury's still out for whether Three Hopes should replace the original FE Warriors and whether there'd be other changes.

Nester the Lark: My list could use some tweaking, too, but since it was entirely first-party games, I was considering making an entirely separate list of favorite third-party games.

nocturnal YL: Finished playing Atelier Ryza 2. The main story, anyway. Main takeaways: (1) BRSL really took a lot from it, from the summer theme to the 3+1 battle formation and certain plot points; (2) it's still not my kind of game, and it's too reliant on lore;

nocturnal YL: (3) item synthesis, gems (used for the rebuild, copy and essence systems) and shop upgrades all eat up lots of raw materials, which is quite annoying; (4) it's just as I expected: much better than Ryza 1, but still not great by Atelier standard.

nocturnal YL: There are a lot of game genres and elements that I said I wouldn't like, and my game library would say otherwise. At various points I thought I wouldn't like music games, town management, time travel story or even SRPGs. My top favs have all of these.

nocturnal YL: I was thinking about doing some kind of quiz game where we post questions asking each other how well do we know each other as gamers. After all, the regulars (especially Nester and I) have posted so much stuff here. I wonder if anyone is interested?

Nester the Lark: ^ Sounds interesting, but of course, I wouldn't expect there to be a lot of participation.

Shrikeswind: With Nester on that. Could be interesting, though participation would likely be low. Still, could be neat, and for people who aren't as regular, could be a good way to acquaint or reacquaint members.

nocturnal YL: I'll think about what to do with the quiz. I think I'll post mine in a few days. In the meanwhile, feel free to post yours (with your own rules) ahead of me if you feel like it.

Nester the Lark: So, if I understand, we think up trivia about ourselves as gamers that we can quiz other people on?
Aug 3, 2022 9:56:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Yeah, that's the general idea. I'm not decided on what type of questions / topics I'll have, though. Something like "Which level, outside of Secret Seclusion, have I not finished in DKC Tropical Freeze?" might be unfair since I never mentioned this before.
Aug 3, 2022 12:17:13 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Something that people may know, but not stuff that we've directly mentioned would be great. Like "Which Metroid games have I beaten?" for me. Questions without searchable answers would be a good way to introduce new trivia, though.

Nester the Lark: I was thinking of things that I've mentioned on the forum but weren't necessarily well known. I suppose things I haven't explicitly mentioned might be more fun to try to guess.
