No, no Bandai characters. I know they merged, but the idea is just to stick with Namco for now (they have a better back catalogue anyway). I did the same with Konami and Hudson, and will do the same with Square Enix and Taito (however Square & Enix will be merged because take out FF and DQ and you don't actually have many games...)
I will cover the merged companies that are worth covering. Including Hudson and Taito. Probably not Bandai though...
Pino and Acha from Toy Pop Devil Jin from Tekken 5 (or any variation of Yoshimitsu) Digger from Dig Dug (or Mr. Driller since they're related) The Prince from Katamari Damacy (or the King of All Cosmos since he's so fabulous) Voldo from Soul Calibur( The Sould Calibur II version with the badages and gag ball) Definitely Klonoa and Mappy The cheeseburger-head guys from Point Blank on the PSOne Richard Miller from Time Crisis.

I'm not sure I'm fond enuff of Namco's characters to think of ones I want to see drawn, but let's see...
Pac-man is the obvious choice, but you've already drawn him. Klonoa is pretty cool, I guess, tho I've never played any of the games. Amul from Dragon Spirit should have a shout out. Taizo Hori from Dig Dug. Albatross from Rolling Thunder, perhaps. Cassandra from Soul Calibur. (Or maybe Kilik. I'm having a hard time remembering what other characters I used besides Link. ) Colette from Tales of Symphonia, 'cause everyone else is voting for Lloyd. A Galaga (those bug things that capture your ship). Red Baron & Blue Max from Sky Kid. Gilgamesh from Tower of Druaga.
I don't know, I'm kinda indifferent to a lot of Namco's characters.
Not wanting to pick characters already chosen/on the chart, I'll go with...
Ninja (I-Ninja) Libble and Rabble (Libble Rabble. Does this count as two?) Asbel (Tales of Graces) Seigfried (Soul Calibur) Sanger Zonvolt (Super Robot Wars OG Saga) Wild Dog (Time Crisis) King Of All Cosmos (Katamari Damacy. I like this guy better than The Prince <_<) Clyde (Pac-Man) Jack Slate (Dead To Rights)
You're not very familiar with this voting concept are you
If you only pick characters not on the list, they will only get 1 vote and therefore be very unlikely to be drawn. That's why I wanted your personal faves or ones you liked the look of. I'm trying to pick a handful to draw. Not that there's anything wrong with your list, of course.
Edit: I've also removed Sanger Zonvolt as he's a Banpresto character. That's the Bandai half of BNG, and this is just the Namco half we're looking at here.
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
