If by "Sunday" you mean right tomorrow on 11 October, then maybe I'll be alright. Or maybe not.
There's no guarantee that my home TV is not preoccupied by my little sister (who probably simply won't give it up). I'll join... if I'm ready. If not, I'll leave a note here.
I was once asked on why can't I simply use my computer monitor instead. Well, it uses only VGA and DVI. And the VGA connector used to be there for GC... it's no longer available for Wii. Nintendo (and many others) loves neglecting minority.

I'm awake now. Saw your room and joined it, only to be kicked out later bcause 'I was removed from your friend's list' or some weird error message like that. Now your status is offline the whole time :T

It was smoother than I expected considering it's a match with Johans.
I seem to have get comfortable with the lag. I won most of the time! =P
8bit, I almost overslept too. I joined in late. I had to use an alarm (on radio, on phone, on Nintendo DS, whatever) to wake me up. I'm nocturnal. =D
Johans will be the one to set up the room for most of the time (I managed to latch that position but once) so make sure your connection with him is good (not for me, I usually have a red signal with him). Also, I think only a few of my Brawl Friends are inter-registered with me. I assume both parties have to be online simultaneously for it to actually register.
It's miraculous enough that I can communicate with South Americans in any instant form, you know =P

...I think either it's your ISP's problem or it's your router, 8bit.
I have a greater mobility in timing now. For UTC+8, I'm available for Wednesday morning and occationally, Saturday whole-day. Mornings still work best; though maaaaaybe I can play midnight if my next day is a day-off.
Also, if you get a weird message again, 8bit, take a photo or write the message down. "Removed from friend list" doesn't make sense to me.
What will happen if there are 5 or more of us joining? If we split, how do we... swap groups?
One of the next step I want to see in Smash Bros would be better multiplayer support. 4 is far from enough. Make it 6. Or 8. As chaotic as possible! (You need better hardware too, Ninty)
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.
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.

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.

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.
