Nah, the burn-in reduction has nothing to do with internet connection or the like. It's probably just my internet getting worse by the day. Hell I tried to watch that Pokemon replay of yours earlier and after three attempts I managed to get to the second turn before disconnecting again

Breaking through the stone ages once more--
Anyway, I wonder if anyone's up for Brawl with me. (Though I've seen it's been getting little old lately--- (-i,i-) ) Usually I'm online at weekends, at Friday & Saturday. I prefer mostly playing night-time (21:00 pm - 00:00 am EEST ), but in case you might want me to be earlier, that can be done.

I'd love to have a match, But... 21:00 to 00:00 in UTC+3? That translates to 02:00 to 05:00 in UTC+8, and I may or may not be sleeping in that period. I'm probably awake at 02:00, but I'm not sure about later than that.
If I do keep myself awake though, that would be good. Mostly Saturday; I'd be too tired for anything on Fridays. It's a period that the rest of my family won't be doing anything other than sleeping, and it's the perfect chance for me to use the TV without any interference.

Actually, midnight is somewhat more preferrable for me, since I can't use the TV when my family is using it. Just... not THAT late at night.
I'm fine for 02:00 to 03:00 (UTC+8); don't know if I can do for 01:00 to 02:00 because on days before weekends, my family stay late as well.
The best bet is to give me messages by then, either via IM such as Windows Live Messenger (email@example.com) or Astra* (YoungLink), or leaving messages here and I'll probably read it before it's too late.
* The mssaging service provided by Trillian, required for using the Trillian messenger, which I think is far better then Windows Live Messenger. At least it looks more professional for an IM.
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
