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: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.
Jul 24, 2020 22:46:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
