And happy birthday to the Pac-Man series. According to the interview found in Nintendo Power's Star Fox 64 Player's Guide, Shigeru Miyamoto's favorite game is Pac-Man, which is one reason why it caused him to create Devil World (and probably its cousin, Squish).
Pac-Man might have caused Miyamoto to suggest Sakurai to color Kirby "yellow". In fact, Kirby is another cute, round, and easy-to-draw character that eats things. For Starfy, which is often compared to Kirby, is also cute and yellow like Pac-Man (though cartoon versions of stars are usually yellow). According to Iwatani, yellow is a "neutral color" which neither represents friend or foe. Another thing Pac-Man and Starfy have in common are that they had merchandise released during the first games of their franchises.

My first Pac-Man game was the one on Atari 2600. That game is regarded as one of the worst games ever, but that's probably only from the perspective of the porting of games from a platform to another. It was difficult, I agree on that. Also pause the video at any time, and you'll only see one ghost per frame, just like reviewers say.
Regarding Pac-Man Pizza Parlor, turns out it was a PC game.

I thought I'd mention Pac-Man Battle Royale. As far as I know, it's only been shown at Amusement Expo 2010. With the state of arcades the way they are, I doubt many of will play it. It seems like a good candidate for a downloadable title, though.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
