And did nobody see that there were beta items for Kart Wii as well? A Wiggler and then the Chomp and Fireballs from Double Dash (or were the fireballs in Wii?). Man oh man... It's funny how we complain that Nintendo never does enough to satisfy fans, but most of the beta stuff we discover would argue otherwise.
Very much agreed. It's quite interesting to find out what was in beta material. Would have been good if some of the interesting stuff made it through in most games. Oh well.
I remember the Yoshi's Story stage (Smash Melee) being an all-out obstacle course. Final game? Simple Battlefield clone!

Yeah, I remember the little cloud ride going all over the place. Doesn’t really help much near the edges where it’s now.
I also remember seeing this small image of a beta Green Greens where the ground and flora were a lot more realistic looking, much like how Peach’s Castle is now compared to it’s original Mario 64 counterpart. Picture doesn’t seem to be on Unseen64 though.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
