I've retained her rounder cheeks there. Right, that one's over now...
MARIO KART X[/u] Played a lot of Mario Kart Wii lately, and now, here's my ideal Mario Kart game. What other way to kick this one off than to start by posting the modes and racers of it.
GAME MODES Of course, there's the usual Grand Prix, Time Trial, and all of that.
There's now a stamina function added to this game in races and battle mode alike. Your kart carries a stamina meter. Lose it all and retire. However, this is all entirely optional and can be switched on or off in the race options. When it does deplete, the character's kart comes to a halt and he/she'll simply disappear.
Battle Modes include: Balloon Battle, Coin Runners, Bob-Omb Blast, and Shine Tag
Also, there's now a Garage Mode, where you can customize your own karts! Heh heh heh, look forward to more of this next time...
Middleweights Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Birdo, Pauline, Tiny Kong, Jimmy T.
(*Know why Rosalina was one of these? She appeared taller than Peach and Daisy)
Of these, the new ones are Tiny Kong, Jimmy T., Mona, Pauline, Hammer Bro, and Shy Guy (teeeechnically...). All four baby characters removed.
Just a few of the new items Fire Flower - Fireballs will circle around your character. Press the item button to launch fireballs; as many as you can until the little timer on the item runs out. Mini-BGM from Galaxy included.
Ice Flower - Your character will be covered in ice (leaving icy trails behind), can throw snowballs with the item button (as many as possible within the short item's timer) that freeze opponents. Bumping into others in this state freezes them too. Mini-BGM from Galaxy included.
Feather - Celebrating its ~*glorious return*~ from the SNES game. Allows for high jumps.
Mini Mushroom - Normally, the Thunderbolt hinders you with getting tiny, but the Mini Mushroom allows you to go tiny on your own accord, due to there being tiny-only shortcuts and all that this time.
...I'll be completely honest now, I'm not sure of what else there could be in terms of items. All others are retained, but the Thunder Cloud is purged.
MUSHROOM CUP Luigi Circuit (naturally...) Bob-Omb Badlands DK Wilds Pianta Park
FLOWER CUP Mario Circuit (this too...) Mona Plaza Pineapple Beach Chill Peak
STAR CUP Waluigi's Lagoon Fruit Mountain Shy Guy Tower Honeycomb Valley (Bees from Galaxy everywhere)
SPECIAL CUP Sky Path Koopa Countryside Bowser's Castle (incidentally...) Rainbow Road (oh, of course)
SHELL CUP N64 Kalimari Desert DS Waluigi Pinball Wii Mushroom Gorge GCN Sherbet Land

Ironically, Mario Kart X is the original name of Mario Kart Wii.
But then, Super Smash Bros Brawl came in. The name "X" was taken by its Japanese version, so like Mario Kart R, X has to use a generic name.
May add comments later.
EDIT - I'll focus on the concept on this one, since I've seen so many of your tastes already and can't really comment anything new.
Not much complaints except 32 tracks?! Oh wait. That's 38. Too few. That's what I think about the actual games too. And I don't really need the retro courses since I'll play the old game if I want to anyway.
I've no idea on how to battle on a Wii Remote. It's too long for a battle course.
So you have Mona as the only Wario character, but you'll reach as far as Candy Kong for DK characters? The only Kong less important than Candy is Swanky! I think you're just letting your fetishes get the best of you.
Jimmy is pretty much the co-star of the WarioWare series. He's always the stage right after Wario's, the characters usually gather at Club Sugar, his spot, and he's the only character besides Wario who usually gets several other related stages (Jamie T., James T., Jimmy P., etc).
But I'm fairly certain that 9-Volt and Ashley are more popular than both of them.
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.

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...

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.

Nester the Lark: Hey, guys. Sorry for my unannounced-on-the-forum absence. I didn't expect to be gone for so long. But I'm back, and I'll try to get back into the swing of things around here.
