Do you count returning cameos in remakes? Kirby Super Star Ultra still has the Stone ability transformations in the original. Don't know if you will count the HAL logo cameo as well.
Also with Kirby Ultra, if you count the HAL block cameo in Kirby's Adventure, Ultra has it as well.
Tell me if you need more info on these.
...More to come!
- One of its soundtracks in Fire Emblem 11 is taken from FE9. Having never played the game though, I cannot tell where it takes place. (Track 33 here: Serenes Forest FE11 track listing) - FE12 has the same FE8 music in the same places (arena and training grounds), having reused many of the FE11 things. The FE9 battle music did not return. - In the same manner, FE8 has FE2 and FE4 music (FE8 arena battle = FE2 player phase battle, FE8 areana prepatation = FE4 prologue map theme). (I would view FE cameos to be too in-series, seeing that picking music from previous games, as well as recurring characters like the fourth wall-breaking Anna and the Ike-loving Aimee, are a series-wide tradition) - You mentioned the G-ZERO cameo also in Star Fox Command in X-Scape, but you did not mention G-ZERO in the Star Fox Command page.
Here is not the place for posting changes or new cameos. Please do that in the cameo board.
Also, YL, I sent you a request for more details on the KSS and KSSU HAL room to your private messages a couple days ago, as you mentioned they were there, but never actually said where (at least, you didn't in the cameos board or in an email).

I know it's been on the site since before the update, but I absolutely love how Nester's cameo in NES Play Action Football says, "Submitted by Nester." It's like he submitted his own cameo, which of course is exactly what Nester would do! I hope that's what people think if they see that.
Adapting old cameos (e.g. WarioWare: Twisted) with people's modern forum names was weird. I had to keep checking to make sure I had the right one.
Theq... not to be confused with The Qu. ;D
The Qu... Your contribution has not gone unnoticed. Several members have been meticulous in their cameo hunting over the years, and I feel I have been letting you all down. Hopefully, this goes someway towards making up for that!

Just wondering, if I did mention the fact that Capsule J in Kirby Super Star has been based on Konami's Twinbee, is it a cameo? Twinbee just was quite hot stuff around kids in that time, so it's no wonder they used him as the base on Jet-ability's helper.
I would like to know if it was based on Twinbee, or it was later decided that it looked too much like Twinbee and so they'd better change it.
I've been wondering about this one for a while... Not sure if it's supposed to be a cameo or not...
And The Qu... I'm not sure it was about time. I've nearly abandoned the site a few times, but I keep coming back. I was starting to think I was never going to manage it. I'd still like to know if I'll ever get the Smash Bros. cameos up! ;D

None confirms this, but seeing how popular Twinbee was back in 90's (Twinbee Paradise and such), it might be no wonder. It could've been a tribute to Twinbee, but later Nintendo decided to play safe and change the character design.
Maybe it could be worth of mentioning that, though?
I have done a big ol' overhaul of the Nintendo 3DS game pages, including all packaged, downloaded and included software, and then slipped all the cameos in.
The pages are also showing off a new style that I've been working on. Why? Because this style makes it easier to cover multi-game miniseries titles (e.g. the DSiWare "Express" games, which have been a problem in the current design). It also forces me to write a short intro. I will be rolling this out, starting with 3DS, Wii and DS, so I shouldn't fall so far behind.
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
