Like most games from Sakamoto's team at SPD, Tomodachi Collection is filled with Nintendo cameos. From a trailer shown at the latest Nintendo Direct we can see lots of different hardware units on display in Iwata's apartment. We can also see a band called the Game Boys, but that might just be a name Iwata created for his own character.

Food Fantasy ? Final Foodtasy ? Final Food-taste-y ? Last Order Final Fantasy VII ? Final Fantasy Kitchen Tactics Advance Course Meal ? Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Chicken Wings ? Final Fantasy Cooking Chronicles: My life as a Chef ? (One of those is a real game by the way but which one? ;D)
Instead of critical hit's there should "critical heat" when food is at an optimal temperature.
Standard attacks should be like "stir", "cut", "knead".
Magic attacks would be "oven", "add boiling water" or "blender" (some sort of machinery)
Items would be just ingredients to make the meal . . .
Dammit people, there's a fucking good idea in here somewhere. (begins writing of game design document)

Also all Miis can be given a Wii U and 3DSXL to play with. The Wii U can be heard playing Pirates from Game & Wario, as well as Metroid Blast, Takamaru's Ninja Castle, and Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest from NintendoLand. The 3DS doesn't seem to feature any game in particular.
Getting those Nintendo treasures have been killing me.
Anyone think this is a Slippy reference?
I'd say yeah, thought it might have just been a generic Frogger reference but it does look pretty much exactly like the top half of Slippy.
On another note concerning references, I've noticed a buttload of "1889" references in the game. A lot of sports-related clothing and headwear use '89, and a bunch of rooms have generic rock-music type posters with 1889 on them.
I've also noticed the word "Redfurt" being used in a lot of areas in the game and on various clothing items as well but I can't find any meaning concerning it.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

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.

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...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
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.
