I remember Fry saying he had other forums before this one. Were you a member of the previous forum?
Before I joined the forum, I had email correspondence with Fry, mostly pointing out errors on the site. I do remember Fry mentioning moving the forum and asked members to re-register. I don't recall whether I was still a lurker or did I actually join, but it seems to me that the latter was the case.

March 3 marks the fourth anniversary of the Nintendo Switch, as well as Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and any other games released on this day.
So, if Nintendo is serious when it says that Switch is in the middle of its lifespan, then it's got another four years to go. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that they won't release new hardware before then.

1-2-Switch and Super Bomberman R were also released on the same day. As were Snipperclips, VOEZ (JP ver), the Switch remake of Soldam (JP ver), and most importantly, Vroom in the Night Sky (JP ver).
Nintendo is confident enough in the Switch's longevity that they announced Splatoon 3, a 2022 online game that directly competes with its predecessor on the same system.
8 years may sound like a long time, but the Famicom and Super Famicom got games after 10 years. Granted, Wario's Woods and Picross NP Vol. 8 aren't exactly big releases…
In terms of rival systems, PS4 was released in late 2013 and PS5 in late 2020. So do the Xbox equivalents, but modern Xbox doesn't have a strong concept of console generations. At any rate, a 7- or 8-year console generation is certainly reasonable.
nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
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.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
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…
