Also, I'll be configuring the third party stuff next week, probably after Wednesday. I have a paper/presentation to do this weekend, plus an extra credit paper and a fair amount of reading, so I'd like to focus on those first.
Okay, here's some third party women for you all to consider. I think I'll let you all pick THREE characters (if you complete the three Nintendo ones!) to tackle. I've got 30 reps, five from six systems. I combined the handhelds into one group. Here's the list:
NES: Christine (Arkista's Ring, American Sammy) Princess of Moonbrooke (Dragon Warrior II, Square-Enix) Alyssa (The Guardian Legend, Compile) Maria (Ghost Lion, Kemco) Sypha Belnades (Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Konami)
SNES: Chun-Li (Street Fighter II, Capcom) Pocky (Pocky and Rocky, Natsume) Lucca (Chrono Trigger, Square-Enix) Terra (Final Fantasy VI, Square-Enix) Selan (Lufia II: Curse of the SInistrals, Natsume/Neverland)
N64: Marina Lightyears (Mischief Makers, Treasure/Square-Enix) Leia (Ogre Battle 64, Square-Enix/Quest) Daisy (Body Harvest, Midway/DMA Design) Tron Bonne (Mega Man 64, Capcom) Adon (Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, Acclaim/Iguana)
Gamecube: Jade (Beyond Good & Evil, UBI Soft) Aika (Skies of Arcadia, Sega) Bloodrayne (Bloodrayne, Majesco) Colette (Tales of Symphonia, Namco Bandai) Ada Wong (Resident Evil 4, Capcom)
Wii: Momohime (Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Ignition/Vanillaware) Gemini Sunrise (Sakura Wars: So Long my Love, NIS America/RED Ent./Sega) Captain Rose (Zack & Wiki, Capcom) Asuka (Shiren the Wanderer, Atlus/Chunsoft) Shinobu (No More Heroes, UBI Soft/Grasshopper)
A decent mix of well-known and obscure gaming women, methinks.
I'm also announcing that I'm taking an Internet vacation for the rest of the month. So I won't be around to assign new characters until November. I'd like to ask Fryguy or Nester to take over the randomization process for me in my absence if they don't mind. This is a rather sudden decision, I'm aware, and if I had thought of it sooner I'd have asked before today. Have fun doodling, everyone! See you soon!
In the process of uploading Jenny now . . . Will edit post . . .
EDIT: Here she is!
Used some easier tools in CPE4. Added decent shading. Actually feel happy enough with the drawing to post it here.
Extended the skirt because I couldn't tell if the "pinky red shorts" I saw in a Let's Play. (she was in a kneeling position while drawing on the ground) of the game were actually her underwear or something).
It was also bloody hard to find reference images of her, so I did her in that pose because I didn't know what else to draw. And I thought it would be okay to add Chibi Robo to it because of how small CR is.
Hoping someone repsonds to this because this forum feels pretty dead lately.

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
