Oh yes, quite a major one that! You'll notice Clawgrip isn't in the boss list for Dokidoki Panic.
The family in the game were the mascots from the advertising campaign for Fuji TV's Dream Factory - a series of upcoming shows and events. They weren't created by Nintendo, but just about everything else in the game was.
A lot of the Virtual Boy section existed on old versions of the site, so not as much there to read... but who knows, you may not have read about all the cancelled games!
Still not sure if that rotating Arwing demo counts as a cancelled game or not... Maybe worth a mention. Or perhaps when the main bulk of the game system pages are done I can include that often-requested tech demo page for each system. I still have a bunch of the old GameCube tech demo videos.

Oh, and when you finally reach GC, look at all those ditched stuff they had! Melee looks complete, but the most others looked pretty unfinished / far away from the final product.
Don't worry YL... Remember that NinDB was started at the birth of the GameCube, and so all of those forgotten games are still fresh in the memory.
Watching that video, it feels like we've come so far with portable gaming devices in the last 10 years, but consoles have just stagnated. Compare first gen 3DS to first gen GBA and there's a huge difference in graphics, sound and gameplay capability...
But look at the first gen GameCube games and stack them up against modern console games... I honestly don't see enough of a difference in quality, and there's certainly been minor improvement in sound or gameplay developments in the past 10 years.
Oh well, bring on Project Cafe...
Just wondering, maybe we could try for real to get this site back working and updated! All pages were very interesting to read.
I wanted to get some bits and pieces out of the way for the Project Cafe launch at the beginning of June and the site's 10th birthday at the end of June.
Any ideas how we could celebrate the 10th anniversary of NinDB? Perhaps with a long rant about how games 10 years ago are about as far as we'll ever come
Just a question Fry: Once all the pages are updated, are you gonna continue to make guides for lesser known games like the text adventures again? Those were probably some of the most informative pages on here. And what of the pages for Game & Watch and Toys & Games?
I've been considering what to do next. The plan is to do the Game & Watch, Arcade and Toys & Games sections as part of this run on hardware updates, and I intend to flesh out the toys and games section a lot more.
Once they're done, I've been trying to work out what games I'd like to do next. The remaining adventure games can't be far behind. I'd certainly like to try and beat Time Twist sometime... but I'd also like to cover some of the older arcade games in more detail.
Yoshi's Universal Gravitation nindb.net/game/yoshi-topsy-turvy.html I don't think the Egglings give Yoshi any special abilitiyes. They're just for collection (and satisfying the Cuteness Spirit's goals).
Nester the Lark: I've had similar thoughts the past several months. What do I really use social media for? I don't interact a whole lot, so for me, it's more about getting content. "Less about the social, more about the media" as I like to put it.

nocturnal YL: On second thought, maybe I should give Bluesky a try. I was actually considering Mastodon as a replacement of X and didn't really think much of Bluesky since posts are viewable by members only, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

Evie ❤✿: I relate with that and Twitter. I started using it and got addicted to scrolling, retweeting things. Nowadays I come back in short waves, or learning about media like you. Unfortunately it's hard to keep track and Musk doesn't like datascraping.
Sept 11, 2023 6:11:48 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: The other reason I use it is to follow art channels I like, specifically to browse cute art.

nocturnal YL: I have got a Bluesky account. I'll consider actually posting later. And I haven't even used X for at least a month. There are a few X users I'm interested in re-following (in a general sense) if they have accounts elsewhere.

nocturnal YL: The problem with being completely sucked into Surge Concerto's world is that I can't actually look them up outside of the game, since everything, including some official media, is spoiler. It's the same issue as BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light.
Sept 11, 2023 12:37:04 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: Cool ^^ Sorry to hear that Hope you have fun with the games until you don't have to avoid the spoilers.

Evie ❤✿: I've been fed up with online editors and software which claims to be free but isn't. -_- I've usually joined an image with audio w/Avidemux which actually is open source. Now I just use FFMPEG to do same for less clicking. I'm satisfied this way though. ^^

Evie ❤✿: I think microblogging sounds nice too. I might try it myself one day. ^^ Twitter/X's character limit is restricting, as is the organisation/discovery of tweets. Don't worry about audience, it isn't important tho if u want one I'm sure will get1 eventually.

Evie ❤✿: Funnily enough there is a recent Hatsune Miku/Pokémon collab called Pokémon feat. Hatsune Miku Project Voltage 18 Types 18 Songs where it imagines if Hatsune Miku was a Pokémon Trainer and what Pokémon she'd use.

Nester the Lark: Sony has announced a State of Play for tomorrow after the Direct. Didn't they do this last September, also? EDIT: Yes, they did.
Sept 13, 2023 16:04:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not a bad Direct. I'll post my impressions later.

Nester the Lark: So, I still don't know if NST had anything to do with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on Switch, but plot twist! They *did* develop F-Zero 99.

nocturnal YL: About a quarter done in Ciel nosurge DX (1/3 story, about 1/5 items). Absolutely love the story, but the gameplay is pretty bad. Wouldn't have liked it at all in its original online, real-time-only form.

Nester the Lark: Apparently, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 won the Award of Excellence at TGS.
Sept 21, 2023 11:33:28 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This is unexpected. His name is almost synonymous with the studio.
Sept 25, 2023 10:46:37 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Surge Concerto (and the overall Ar Tonelico series, from what I know) has deep lore and unfathomable dark stories on top of rather shallow gameplay. It's in some ways a far more extreme version of the BLUE REFLECTION series.
Sept 26, 2023 14:08:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Game design similarities aside, I'm surprised that the same developer behind Atelier can make something like this. Not exactly my cup of tea, but that's an extra layer of appreciation I have for them.
