Stuff like this makes me wonder about the amount of canon immigrants in Nintendo games, given the fairly large amount of other media Nintendo stuff has had. Off hand, only the Crystal Coconuts, the chandelier dragon from Golden Sun and Commercial Falcon come to mind.
Maybe Toad's voice. I've always thought its sounded like the voice from Super Show since Sunshine, but really, how likely is that?
I dunno... Pokémon Puzzle League was just a one-off thing, and it was surrounded by games that weren't based on the anime. It's been almost ten years since we got any new F-Zero material that didn't take place in the anime's universe. It feels a little like they've replaced the old stuff with it.
It happened a little bit. They've been using the anime design for Dedede's Castle for a while, and one of the games (maybe Mouse Attack?) had the NME monster transporter room as the place where you fight Dedede. Didn't one of Mouse Attacks new abilities come from the anime too? I forget which...
Water, recently seen in Return and seen in Kirby GC, was also from the anime. Kinda weird it took them this long for a water Kirby though.
Here's one of those development cameos. The Popopo Islands are named after an in development name for Kirby from before they chose the name Kirby. You can verify that bit in the book that came with the Kirby Dream Collection.
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.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
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.
Oct 17, 2022 8:32:08 GMT -5
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.

Nester the Lark: Hey, guys. Sorry for my unannounced-on-the-forum absence. I didn't expect to be gone for so long. But I'm back, and I'll try to get back into the swing of things around here.
