I suppose we could start now, but the problem lies primarily in that we don't have an over-lying plot. Oh well, we'll just figure it out, I guess. On another note, I miss my green italics. Been ages since I had use for 'em.
Through the river swam the Magikarp, weary from the day. He scurried to the silty riverbed, tired. As he began to push his way beneath the sand, he heard a sound from behind. He turned around and saw a clawed green foot land in the water behind him. Unsure of what to make of it, he jerked himself upwards at full speed, leaping out with a tremendous splash, and saw...SPLOOSH! A stream of bubbles. "Too low," the Magikarp thought, but he didn't bother with it any longer. Where there was one foot, there was two, and the Magikarp knew better than to sleep in a stream where things would walk. And so he swam away, looking for safer waters. Eventually, he came upon a slower patch, with seaweed to hide in. "I don't believe I've ever had the pleasure," the Magikarp mused as he tucked into a small patch of seaweed.
"MY BANANAS!" The evening sky was suddenly alive with birds as the howl of an enraged gorilla shattered the otherwise tranquil sunset. Donkey Kong leapt out, racing for anything that may have taken his hoard.
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.

Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...

Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s

nocturnal YL: I'm about to start on my next review video. I'll use the same 1080p-in-1440p format (so that the caption is separate from the game clips), and I'm wondering if I can make better use of the left and right edges. I probably can't think of anything though.

Nester the Lark: Apologies for my silence lately. I have a lot going on IRL right now.

nocturnal YL: I'm not busy or anything, but I don't really have anything substantial to say either. I'm in Fire Emblem mood now, playing Warriors 3H and really looking forward to Engage, but I'll save discussions for later.

nocturnal YL: Also in case people don't read Nester's Twitter, his issue is that he has lost Internet connection after moving to a place no ISP seems to serve.
