Well, then I think one of those items should be changed. Like, instead of an info block, use the record player from Donkey Kong Country or Dr. Kawashima, and instead of a Yoshi egg use a Togepi or Metroid egg.
There's not a huge problem using mostly Mario icons, as they are the most familiar and recognisable, and in most cases have been engineered to be instantly recognisable.
Rather than trying to shoehorn in a handful of popular-ish series, I'd rather the icon was familiar or at least ideally suited for the situation regardless of the series. I mean, look at how long the series list is! There's bound to be something in there that's perfect for the job.
Yoshi's egg is more familiar than, say, a Metroid egg or even many Pokémon eggs (although Togepi's is probably the most familiar of those). Besides, I've already made that one
Because the rest of the artwork is vector, the pixellated Mario head for cameos works surprisingly well for cameos, so I'm afraid that's also set in stone. Info Block is up for grabs, though... as I've put together the SMW and YI info blocks and I'm not fond of either.

nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
