You could avoid that move easily though, as he'll always land butter-side-up
I'd like to see some believable robot masters... perhaps Road Maintenance Man, Component Manufacturing Man or Pacific Trench Exploration and Sample Collecting Man.
How about Military Man? He has tank treads and is the only Robot Master to never EVER have hands, having them replaced with a tank cannon on one hand, a machine gun on the other. Courtesy Wily, of course.
And, of course...
Sorry Shrike, but Napalmman beat you to the no-hands thing. ;D

(As if my joke had gone unnoticed.)
Anyways, we still need REPAIR-MAN-MAN-MAN-MAN-MAN-MAN and Toaster Man. And maybe Fat Man. He's fat, he's a man, and he fires enormous globs of ranch dressing that may or may not have a slice of pizza somewhere in them. (It's almost like I'm trying to give someone ideas.)
Hmm... I would love to see Aloha Man, Banana Man, Letter Man, Punch Man, and Rosary Woman.
Aloha Man would be like a Hawaiian fire dancer. He could live in the jungle with a river flowing with lava. The enemies could be like Tiki Statue robots that shoot fireballs and hula girl robots that attack by dancing. He could use the Fire Poi weapon like Leaf Shield (from MM2), only with burning properties.
Banana Man would become a meme due to his phallic shape. He could live in the ice cream factory (an ice level) complete with ice cream cone robots and hot fudge pools (similar to underwater levels). His weapon, Banana Split, would be like Chameleon Sting (from MMX), only with freezing properties.
Letter Man would resemble a blue mailbox and he would use his Sharp Mail weapon to shoot razor sharp envelopes out of his mouth (slot) in an attempt to give Mega Man a nasty paper cut. He would naturally live in a post office complete with conveyer belts, suction tubes, and mail-related robots like mailboxes and homing pigeons.
Punch Man would be a fast-moving boxing robot complete with boxing gloves. He uses his Blow Punch weapon to shoot exploding boxing gloves (useful for destroying barriers just like Crash Bomb and Drill Bomb). He would live in a gym complete with robotic gym equipment like exploding medicine balls and laser-shooting exercise bikes.
Rosary Woman could look like a Catholic nun who can fly and she resides in a robot cathedral complete with stained glass windows and clockworks (think Castlevania's clock stages). The level starts out in the rose garden outside and continues into the robot cathedral and ends in the clock tower. Her weapon could be Rosary Beads which could be used like a whip (made of magnetic beads) that could be used in different directions (think Super Castlevania IV).

I really like Aloha Man, but maybe make Aloha Woman, the same thing but a chick. And probably with a sort of dual weapon where she uses one Poi as you describe and another as a flaming boomerang. The reason I posit a sex change? To add to the exotic feel of a Fire Poi fighter.
I thought about Aloha Woman but I decided to go with Aloha Man as it fits the traditional image of a Hawaiian fire dancer better. Men are traditionally fire dancers in Polynesian cultures. Polynesian men are just as exotic as Polynesian women so I don't see the need for Aloha Woman.

True, I won't deny Aloha Man would fit tradition better. It really is a toss-up for me.
How about Pipe Man? He was built as a water treatment guy and used his Hydro Arm to perform this duty, but as a Robot Master uses it as a weapon. His stage would be a sewer complete with alligators and Blaarg-like water monsters. (It'd be poo monsters if I had my way, but I doubt Capcom would ever do that, though I have been wrong before.)
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
