Wow! congrats to Fry! since I am from Mexico, the only access had to the Nintendo Power were the official SMB3 guide which I bought on an import store (and its awesome) and these articles our local Official Nintendo magazine translates (which I found cheap, write your own articles Club Nintendo, don´t borrow the ones from your Big brother) I´m curios to see what route they take with this.

They've already said on Twitter that it will be available both physically and digitally. It'll be interesting to see how they handle the physical version. Will it be a limited print run, or will it be print-on-demand (which is a little more expensive)?
Also, Fry's contribution is a seven-page Mario comic.
I wonder if Fry was going reveal this as a surprise to us, because I sure spat what I was drinking when I saw this on GoNintendo. Pretty much the same response as everyone else: looking at the miis and noticing familiar names, stating "oh, cool. It's X", getting to the botton and spazing when I noticed Fry's Mii.
Well, I guess I wish ya luck with your endevors with these guys. I doubt it'll be easy, but I'm sure it'll be fun. I wonder if they'll autograph any physical copies >.>

The magazine has also announced that proceeds from its first issue will be donated to charity, so all the more reason to check it out!
Kinda funny how everyone has gotten so supportive of Nintendo Power and Nintendo Force since the magazine was announced to be discontinued. I guess it was just around so long that a lot of us took it for granted, but losing it was like losing another bit of our childhood. (Same when GamePro went out of print.) So, now we've turned around to cling on to it.
Also, we're starting to sound like a bunch of Fryguy64 fanboys in here. That reminds me, I need to draw up some fan art and write some erotic fan fiction.
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.

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…?

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...?

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.

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.
