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.
Shrikeswind: Wait what am I celebrating about the excuse is that I had COVID for basically all of November. Wear your masks kids.

Shrikeswind: Anyways I'm back and I'm gonna get started on the Christmas thread soon. Any suggestions for this year?

Shrikeswind: Can't be an advent calendar of any sort, considering how late I am.

nocturnal YL: Nice to see you here Shrikes, and sorry to hear about you having COVID-19. Speaking of Christmas, the holiday mood seems to be a bit better where I work compared to the last few years.

Shrikeswind: Still coughing my lungs up, but yeah, doing a lot better now that it's past tense.

Shrikeswind: Thread should be up tonight. I need to leave for an interview in a little over an hour and I hadn't even slept last night.

Shrikeswind: Sidebar, I never thought I'd see the day where staying up to ungodly hours was a sign of health. Covid be wild.

nocturnal YL: Remember NinDB Top 25? My list would have been slightly different now, even if I keep the series composition: (24) Ys VIII → (18) Ys Origin; (9) Atelier Totori DX → (8) Atelier Firis DX.

Nester the Lark: I've got ideas for some posts I want to make. Now if only I could make time to actually write them...

Shrikeswind: Finally finished this year's Christmas thread. Hoo boy has this been a stressful month. Sorry for the delay. And for that matter, sorry for any dead links in the playlists. No time to actually fix it, I need to get to bed.

nocturnal YL: Random trivia time: in Super Mario Galaxy 1, it's possible to swim in lava. The reason is that the overlapping water allows the Ice Flower to make platforms. www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUmJLqo8kWg
