Aside from the development process there are some cool tidbits.
Like how Bow-Wow and the spinning fire thing from Mario were intended to be stuff in the original Zelda.
And how there was supposed to be three worlds in A Link to the Past initially but it was too complicated to design/not enough memory. I wonder if the third world became the Twilight Realm later in Twilight Princess, as it seems the development team for the series likes to implement ideas from the past that they weren't able to do before.
A lot of what put in A Link to the Past seems to be dropped stuff from the original Legend of Zelda. I think I understand what Miyamoto meant when he said A Link to the Past is the true sequel to the original even better now than before.
Aha, yes, I saw a link to this yesterday. It's like a retro Iwata Asks ;D
The stuff about the Chain Chomps and Fire Bars was interesting, and I think I may have to add a line into the cameos section to explain. But seeing what thought goes into a game, especially a classic game and one of the iconic titles of my childhood, is great!
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.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
