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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
