This is mainly wishful thinking, but I feel as if we should get one for the next console, as there's talk about a new console on the horizon. The Wii U did not do well (despite having some great games), so I'd expect them to just leave all their big hitters for a launch titles (well ok, F-Zero has never really sold that well, but... eh). It could be the same for other lingering series, like Metroid.
Of course, this is just me speculating. I wish I owned GX, I love that game to death ~.~

So which Smash characters are deader than Falcon?
But seriously though, are most people actually asking for a new F-Zero game? I know I'm not. It barely even has that much of a fanbase. At least if people who want nothing more than a "Captain Falcon Adventures" count as its fanbase.
Meanwhile, speaking of which, I'm also rather annoyed at how most people don't care about the WarioWare series anymore, outside of Ashley (and her song), when it's a really good series with a whole bunch of otherwise interesting characters. But instead, they only recognize Ashley out of it, and nothing else. That kinda sucks.

I see a perfect excuse to post F-Zero music here.
I didn't even notice it stopped getting new games until someone pointed it out. In the early 2000s, they put out four F-Zero games in rather quick successions that I thought the long pause afterwards was to make up for that.
Ice Climbers be so dead, they ain't even in the series no more! I honestly miss those buggers, though. Top level play with those guys in Brawl was mesmerizing. Funny how they dropped down to the bottom of the barrel in the Project M mod, though.

The official Cipher Twitter account regularly posts illustrations besides cards from the various partaking artists. Throughout the week leading to today, the first anniversary of the series, multiple artists posted their congratulatory messages.
I couldn't recognise Daisuke Izuka's Marth at first. I thought it was a little girl.
Today is also the first anniversary of Fates, which launched on the same day as Cipher.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.

nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.

Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
