nocturnal YL: In a way, Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists is terrifying. You're in a peaceful village, and suddenly the lord's daughter and some foreigners came in to develop the town and multiply the population 1000-fold. They also made the village a command economy.

nocturnal YL: I'm finding myself to resent the modern tech world on both consumer and development environment sides, perhaps not unlike an old person complaining about new ways of doing things.

nocturnal YL: I've been playing the remaining route (Azure Gleam) in Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. The way that game is structured means I'll have to play 3 more runs to really get everything. Not sure if I'll do that.

nocturnal YL: I think I'll get back to Future Connected. Don't know what lies after that, but I'll likely proceed to the next part of my Gust marathon. Also thinking about getting Warriors All-Stars on PS4.

Nester the Lark: I should finally start FE Engage since Tears of the Kingdom is just two months away now (I'll save Fatal Frame for later, and when I can get it on sale), but current mental health struggles are making it difficult to get motivated.

Nester the Lark: I finally started Engage a few days ago. I've been playing it somewhat slowly, but luckily, the game is much more brisk than Three Houses.

nocturnal YL: Quick question, since Nintendo eShop is closing, I'm wondering if I should pick up some DLC I didn't get before (and then, like the WiiWare games, end up never playing them). In particular, Xenoblade X DLC is cheap, but I don't know if I'll get that, so…

nocturnal YL: Also in consideration is Fire Emblem Awakening DLC. Back then, there were two series of DLC featuring einherjar from Archanea/Jugdral and Elibe/Tellius, and I only picked the "complete" version of each line. Maybe I should pick up the rest?
Mar 17, 2023 9:25:50 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I can't really speak about Xenoblade X DLC since I still don't have the game. I just know that it was included for free in the international version of the game. Also, there are several free data packs that are supposed to speed up loading times.

Nester the Lark: I'm still gambling on the game getting a port to Switch or the next hardware. Monolith Soft needs a stopgap title before the next main Xenoblade, right? I could be wrong, though.

nocturnal YL: Finally actually started Future Connected. The story started by showing an obvious villain. Someone should tell the kids to stay cautious.
Mar 18, 2023 11:36:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Future Connected's standard battle music is pretty unexpected. I really like it.
Mar 19, 2023 2:44:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: 100% completed Future Connected! I know it's short, but… it's short.

nocturnal YL: I can think of 3 Soviet Union references in Nintendo games: the USSR team in NES Volleyball, the rockets in GB Tetris, and the Berlin Wall in Mario Kart Tour. None of these is offensive, but it shows Nintendo is less controversy-averse than I thought.

Nester the Lark: In other "Japanese stuff in English" news, the Japanese Nintendo Twitter accounted tweeted in English about an upcoming quiz for Breath of the Wild (also available in English).

Nester the Lark: I'm at a point in Fire Emblem Engage where there's gotten to be a little too much to do in the Somniel. However, I don't mind it as much as in Three Houses. Maybe I just feel more invested in it.
Mar 25, 2023 9:53:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I just realised that Xenoblade X is a 22.7GB download in Japan, and perhaps a bit more overseas. Barring the use of some different compression tech, there's no way they're bringing this to Nintendo Switch, where 32GB cards aren't really used AFAIK.
Mar 25, 2023 13:07:21 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This size also means the Xenoblade X edition of the Wii U hardware can't really be used for playing other downloaded games without an external hard drive.
