Well, I don't mean made up out of nowhere. They'd be tributes to the series, certainly. Like, to use a completely off the wall example, Wario might end up in dressed as Foreman Spike. It's still Wario, he's just borrowing someone's costume.
I was thinking about maybe it would be cool if there is a new battle type in addition to Time, Stock, and Coin battles... I call it Boost battles.
Boost battles are like Coin battles except random stat boosts from Smash Run appear instead of coins. Stat boosts come in different sizes but their sizes depend on how light or how hard the opponents were hit. Characters would run faster, jump higher, hit harder, etc. during the match and their stats would decrease by half when they get KO'd.
These are the stat boosts from Smash Run.
I really dislike Smash Tour but I really like the final battles. This is when I thought of a new multiplayer mode to go with Smash, 8-Player Smash, and Special Smash. This mode is based on the final battles in Smash Tour so players can just select multiple characters and battle.
For example, Player 1 selects Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Bowser. Player 2 selects Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, and Sheik. Player 3 selects Pikachu, Charizard, Lucario, and Greninja. Player 4 selects Marth, Ike, Robin, and Lucina. When a character is eliminated, that player will play his/her next selected character when he/she respawns. The match continues till all the other players run out of characters.
I would call that mode Royal Smash, after "battle royale" and WWE's Royal Rumble.
I really enjoyed fighting the generic enemy teams in Smash Run. I think there should be a new Stadium game much like Mult-Man Smash where you fight 10 big enemies (example: Bulborb, Bonkers), 100 small enemies (example: Goomba, Waddle Dee), or infinite generic enemies (with one big enemy appearing for every 50 small enemies you defeat)... fight generic enemies for 3 minutes or try to survive cruel generic enemies.
That would be awesome. I am not sure what to call the mode... maybe Enemy Smash?
Nester the Lark: First, The Pokémon Company gets into trouble with that whole Pokémon Masters EX hashtag business, and now this.

nocturnal YL: That's very embarrassing (and also entertaining). But I wonder why would The Pokémon Company post something they probably didn't make themselves?

nocturnal YL: Got to the ending of Xenoblade. I'll do the post-game contents in Casual Mode since they started to feel grindy. I'll also go back to the parts I skipped (mostly quests and Colony 6); there isn't much reason to play NG+, so I'll just complete the 1st run.

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.

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.

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.

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.
