I'll probably be fine. I'll have to take an exam on Sunday 14:00. Taking 2 hours for transportation, I can have 2 hours of playtime maximum. (Forget about studying; those'll be done earlier than that! Plus I need relaxation before exam, no? =P)
If I can take over the TV at that time, I'll join. Once again, I'm inter-registered with JN and Nester, so there'll be no problem on that.
EDIT - I don't know about your exact usage of IM, but if you use Windows Live Messenger, I strongly suggest any potential players to add me (email@example.com - this is NOT my email address). It'll make scheduling much easier.

Ah, sorry for the late publication.
Replay files here. I saved 29 out of 30 matches (pressed A too quickly after one match), but here are 5 most impressive ones in my opinion. wario.memebot.com/Replays.zip
Second Appointed Online Brawl of Nintendo Database Forum Members 23/24 May, 2009
GMT 02:20 - Nester started looking for members. YL joined. GMT 02:50 - Johans' bro joined GMT 03:10 - Johans joined GMT 03:40 - Nester left GMT 03:50 - Johans' bro (or as I believe) joined as a separate player GMT 04:10 - YL left; online meeting ended with lots of fun!
A little thought of the match: - That smacking fan! I always overlook this item because of its minor damage. Nester taught me a good lesson today: it traps people! - Snake is so broken. As is anyone under Johans' bro's control. - Power of players (or so I think): Johans' bro > Johans > Nester > me - If you play as some heavy characters, like Bowser or Dedede, you can almost guarantee that your life is over. Unless you face my Luigi. - Lag means people unfamiliar with online battles (like me) will be at an adverse position. - I play a good Ike, much to my surprise.
Oh, and taunt messages can form some pretty funny situations. See the zip file over there. (File subject to removal; I may replace it when I get a second chance to play online)
And, finally, my favourite match, in uToob-FLV format. YL = Luigi, Nester = 2P Marth, Johans = 3P Marth

It's weird, I didn't perceive so much lag (not the kind that makes PK Thunder impossible to perform). jigglysama, on the other hand... I don't get how can the guy be so good; the lag with him has been definitely worse than last night's. And I'm sure Nester beat me several times when we played one year ago while my connection wasn't this good.
And yeah, maybe we should try earlier/later next time so that 8bit or UK people can join.
I don't mind the fan as long as the victim's percentage is lower than the sudden death default percentage. But I guess it annoys most people

Ah. I'm fine with the annoying fan. Smacking is actually kind of fun. Just don't overdo it. (The game seems to disagree by giving us tons of those though)
If I am to join another game, Nester, or whoever will host the game, can you please let me play a Stock match or two? I prefer that over Time. Both have advantages and disadvantages, so I'd say a mix of 'em will be good. (I personally play only Stock when I'm alone or playing local multiplayer.)
And Johans - or, all NinDBers except Nester, Savage Adam and Swedishdolphin - have not added me in, since my friend list say all those people are "waiting for registration". Can Johans check this out?
And unfortunately, both of your signal are red to me. I'll try tweaking around with my router next time. I suspect it's my problem, since my connection to other services like Nintendo Channel is only semi-perfect.
I'm usually fine just as long as it's weekend - preferrably morning so that my sis is still sleeping. 12 hours later and my sis will take over the TV (or not, depending on whether she's got activities to do). I do agree on the "let UK people have a chanc to play" part though.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.
Jun 12, 2021 1:38:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.
Jun 13, 2021 16:05:31 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
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.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
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…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
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.
Jun 17, 2021 9:23:48 GMT -5
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.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
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.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
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.
