Please post your screenshots for cameos that are already on the site here.
A few guidelines:
High quality PNG screenshots are requested where possible.
Where possible, please submit your screenshots as PNGs. If you have BMP files, but no method of converting them to PNGs, then email them to me or Zip them up and post them somewhere so I can download them.
Low quality screenshots are useful for proving cameos, but they will not be used on the site.
JPEGs may be acceptable so long as the compression isn't too high.
For screenshots taken with a TV Card, some loss of quality will be acceptable.
Please do not edit or crop your images yourself. I will handle that at my end if required.
01 is nothing special, but maybe someone could find something important in those symbols? 05 is Popple saying "I'll remember this, which is what Birdo says when you beat her in Super Mario Advance. Birdo and Popple eventually become "a couple" in this game. 06, 07, and 08 are from a book in Beanbean Castle Town that makes mention of the Gamecube controller. I think it's just mentioning that if you play this game on your Gamecube, you can find hidden items... 09 is a ghost from Luigi's Mansion. Whenever these ghosts appear, they only bother Luigi and chase him around. 22 is also nothing in particular, but this painting only appears in this area of Hoohoo Hooniversity (as well as some battles) so maybe it's an inside joke? Who knows. 24 is a part of the barrel jumping minigame. Luigi seems to take the place of Pauline when he yells "Heeeallp!!" 25 are just crabs. But given the cameo in 49, I think they were meant to be Sidesteppers. 26 is the Toad Express. The plane from Super Mario Sunshine. 27 and 28 show Luigi with the Poltergust, another reference to Luigi's Mansion. 29 shows the Super Poltergust 3001 which is rideable. This could be a lead in the the Poltergust 4000 which Luigi rode in Mario Kart DS. 32 is the arcade with the D-pad A-B scheme on top. I looked all over to a reference to WIN-tendo (as you have listed on the site) but I couldn't find it 34 and 35 is the Koopa Clown Car. 36 and 37 show a flagpole outside of the hospital in Little Fungitown. If Luigi (or Mario later in the game) jumps on it, he slides to the bottom and then jumps off. 40 and 41 is just Luigi being gay XD 49 is a Sidestepper that will randomly appear during the battle with Hermie. 50 and 51 show Boddle turning into an egg and performing the throw move (with himself) from Yoshi's Island. 53 is a secret cave. In these caves, whenever you touch something the death music from Super Mario Bros. plays (in 8-bit) and your character falls off the screen. 54 and 55 is just a character that looks like Petey Piranha. 57 is during the battle with Popple and Birdo. If you beat Popple first, Birdo says "That's as far as you go!" which is also what she says in Super Mario Advance.
The Koopalings' intros reflect their personality and sometimes how they were fought in previous Mario games. Iggy is shown to be hyperactive (especially in New Super Mario Bros.) so what he does is spin around the Bros. super fast to make them dizzy (59 and 60). When Morton was fought in past games, he would climb up the ceiling and jump down. Here he does the same but also creates shockwaves (61). In Super Mario World, Lemmy would hide in a pipe and sometimes a fake would pop out while he attacks. Here he creates three fakes and you have to find the right one (63). Whenever Ludwig had been fought, he would slide around in his spiked shell. Here he does the same and so Mario and Luigi have to make timed jumps to dodge him (65). Roy would also jump up and try to stomp on the Bros. He was also in charge of the sky in Super Mario Bros 3. Before you fight him here, he jumps up into the air for quite some time, then lands on the Bros. because they think he left (70). In Super Mario World, Wendy would pop out of random warp pipes. Here she does the same and you have to whack her with a hammer (71). Strangely enough, Larry is the only one who I can't figure out. He hits a fireball to a Bob-Omb with a tennis racket, trying to blow up Luigi...unless that's the same racket Bowser uses in Mario Tennis...I don't see anything stand-out here (72). Additionally the battle order is the same as Super Mario World.
64 is the Mecha-Koopa from Super Mario World. 66, 67, 68, and 69 is an area in Bowser's Castle where Mario crosses a bridge and jumps on the axe. Then the bridge disappears and the fake Bowser is dropped in the lava. 73 appears to be taken from the ending of Super Mario Sunshine but with Luigi added.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."
May 29, 2021 11:45:28 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.
Jun 12, 2021 1:38:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.
Jun 17, 2021 9:23:48 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
