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: I'd like to be playing Fire Emblem Engage, but it wasn't delivered when it was supposed to be, and the shipment tracking hasn't been updated, so I have no idea what happened to it.

Nester the Lark: Times like this make me wonder if Sakurai had the right idea, and buying games digitally is the way to go.
Jan 21, 2023 18:23:18 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Digital is usually more expensive and Switch only supports up to 2TB storage (about 140 to 200 games), but if you want to play games as soon as possible, it's the way to go.
Jan 22, 2023 1:48:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know when will I be getting it. I'm still interested, but it's no longer the "pre-order, premium version" kind of interested. These days I order games in bulks, so maybe I'll wait.
Jan 22, 2023 1:49:34 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Finally, an update. It's marked as "out for delivery" again. Fingers crossed.
Jan 23, 2023 12:58:22 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: About the prices of digital games, I often find that when they go on sale, it's usually for very cheap prices. Except for first-party Nintendo games, which rarely go on sale, and not usually for that big of a discount.
Jan 23, 2023 13:01:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: But then, first-party Nintendo games usually hold their value for a long time even physically.
Jan 23, 2023 13:02:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Welp, that's 0 for 2 on the delivery.
Jan 23, 2023 23:11:36 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And it's out for delivery again. Third time's the charm?
Jan 26, 2023 12:54:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And that's 0 for 3 on the delivery.
Jan 27, 2023 9:49:06 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: So, the delivery company gave up and sent the game back to the retailer. My order is being cancelled and money refunded.
Jan 27, 2023 20:41:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've been in contact with a customer service rep from the retailer all week, and they didn't understand why the package wasn't being delivered, either. But they're sending me a $30 gift card for the trouble, so that takes the sting out of it.
Jan 27, 2023 20:43:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Still considering the digital option at this point.
Jan 27, 2023 20:53:05 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Went back to my Wii U and downloaded updates / free DLC for games I don't have, in case I want to buy those.
Jan 30, 2023 7:22:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Wii U having only 32GB of storage isn't helpful at all. 3DS and Switch are expandable via SD cards, while Wii U only supports USB hard disks. It made sense in 2012, but with SD cards going up to 2TB now, not supporting that sounds silly now.
Jan 30, 2023 7:27:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: What started off as me checking what can I do with the Wii U ended up with me just having fun with the system. Also relieved that it still works perfectly fine after 2 years of disuse. Except the Wii U GamePad vibration motor, which now makes weird noises.
Jan 30, 2023 12:43:42 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually planned to use a mod to dump my games and save data, so that in case anything happens to it I can move on to emulation (since, unlike Switch, there's no save data backup service). I haven't started doing that, though.
Jan 30, 2023 12:45:00 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Haha, yeah, still have it hooked up and use it occasionally. Was playing some Fatal Frame 5 recently in anticipation of Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.
Feb 4, 2023 9:42:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Sometimes, I wonder if Nintendo deliberately leaks things like Tears of the Kingdom's price increase so that the "shock" and backlash doesn't overshadow the proper reveal of the game later.
