nocturnal YL: Spoiler →Ayesha is a fugitive wanted by the Central for trespassing and the destruction of public properties as she has unintentionally collapsed several ruins. She deserves it for insisting on following her teacher Keithgriff.← Mar 27, 2024 13:49:14 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I just had a dream of a complete adventure story. I used to be a lucid dreamer, but since a few years ago they just turned into direct reflections of what I do when I'm awake. Haven't seen something fresh for a while. Maybe I'll talk about it in details. Mar 29, 2024 21:01:26 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: Sorry I haven't been posting much. I just haven't had much to say. I was considering posting some thoughts about fighting games, but wasn't sure if I should. Mar 30, 2024 10:20:54 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: That would be interesting to know about. Mar 30, 2024 11:06:21 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's my birthday in my timezone. I'm 35 now. This may be a bit morbid for a joke, but I've hit that midway checkpoint flag in my course of life. (Not implying anything about my lifespan; just that 35 is the start of mid-life by some broader definitions.) Mar 30, 2024 11:11:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: About 30–40% into Atelier Escha & Logy DX. I didn't quite expect to see being overwhelmed by paperwork, coworkers with strong personalities and office politics as part of the story. All these against a backdrop of a dying world and attempts to mitigate it. Apr 3, 2024 12:47:57 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: A suspect has been arrested over the threats to Nintendo Live 2024. Apr 3, 2024 13:57:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I decided to check in on Super Mario Maker before the servers go offline, and YL may be happy to know that his world record time on the final course I uploaded three years ago still stands. Apr 5, 2024 15:08:45 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: A little more than a full day before the 3DS and Wii U online functionality shuts down. I may consider checking my Super Mario Maker and Fire Emblem Fates profiles, but I don't think I'll miss anything if I don't make it. Apr 7, 2024 12:24:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: With Super Mario Maker, I tried to save good creations when I find those, but my save slots are only half full. I can't find any good online collection of good traditional-style courses; online communities are focused on high-difficulty ones. Apr 7, 2024 12:30:55 GMT -5 *
nocturnal YL: Haven't touched my 3DS for a while. I'm surprised how lightweight it is. Apr 8, 2024 13:00:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: So I started Super Mario Maker and started looking for courses I like. Turned out there are quite a lot, and now my Coursebot storage is full. Apr 8, 2024 15:05:46 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: In terms of activity, there has been next to none across the Wii U and 3DS games I checked. Guess I really didn't miss out anything. Also I've refreshed the record in Nester's final Tetris-themed course. It now stands at 36 seconds. Apr 8, 2024 15:08:17 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Played a bit of Project Mirai DX since I was checking my 3DS anyway. My skills got rusty. I still get perfects easily, but now there are a lot of near-misses. Also got way worse at Reversi. Still very fun, as befitting my 2nd favourite game ever. Apr 8, 2024 15:23:14 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Toshihiro Kondo is going to be with NISA at Anime Expo in July. I wonder if they'll be making any announcements. Apr 11, 2024 18:56:09 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know if it's me being spoiled by the much better presentation of the newer games, the "dying world with lots of bureaucracy" setting, general series fatigue, Ayesha's ghost still haunting me, or the Rorona-style format dragging down the pacing… Apr 15, 2024 13:48:13 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: …but while I generally like Escha & Logy, it doesn't excite me. Character events don't happen often, and when they do they tend to fall short of my expectation. Logy has a troubled past for example, and it got revealed and resolved in a single cutscene. Apr 15, 2024 13:50:16 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'll see if things will improve in the second half of the game. And all these made me look forward to Atelier Shallie. I know nothing about that game, but it gets rid of the time limit, which should give the player more control on story progression. Apr 15, 2024 13:58:21 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: A while ago I talked about renewing the record in Nester's SMM1 course. Here's the video for that. Apr 16, 2024 13:02:13 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: ^ I don't think I've seen that stage since I uploaded it. Trivia: The title "Tet-tot-rads" comes from the game Zoda's Revenge: StarTropics II. It's how an NPC in the Old West pronounces the word "tetrads," an old word for Tetris blocks. Apr 16, 2024 14:01:40 GMT -5
