I don't necessarily do one every day (I occasionally have evening plans), but all 31 are drawn within October. I'm usually only a day or so ahead and you can so easily fall behind again! I did, however, write most of the profiles in advance.
But essentially, I'm usually working on tomorrow's the evening before. I'm ahead at the moment (which is nice), but I have two days away after tonight so I'll be all caught up by Friday again.

Aw man, this reminds me still gotta finish that game. Got a lot of games on the backburner lately
It's pretty hard to get people to donate in the age of kickstarter, where everybody expects to get nifty rewards in return for their donations. Several donation sites already follow this system. But since you've been making daily kickass drawings of these characters for the past month I'll definitely throw some more money your way. Gotta get past the 60% mark atleast!
Aha, were you the mystery doner "Superdick" by any chance?
I did think perhaps next year I could have a shortlist and then a donor list, and donations of £10 or more will get to pick their own monster. I'll probably also do it for Child's Play or something too.

Being plain anonymous is for chumps!
I'd say the Penny Arcade crowd pretty much got the whole Child's Play deal covered, but if they happen to mention Nintober on their blog word'll spread hella fast. Having people pick their own monsters probably means a buttload of repeats and 3rd party villains though (but you were already thinking of doing the latter this year anyway so no big deal I suppose)
I'll also take this time to say I love the Nintober images McCullough's been drawing up this month. Dude's got a fun style
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.
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.
