EDIT - ...Say, I have a different idea for a Guess the Game session. I may want to do it once this is over.
I'll likely get tired to looking for good catch copies fairly soon, so if no one else takes over for that, then I say go for it!
Anyway, we're doing all NES games today.
NES: “Why is there a chainsaw in the kitchen?” NES: “Turn your NES into an educational coloring book!” NES: “Russian Robots on the Rampage!” NES: “Speed and skill are all that can save you.” NES: “Jeannie Jungle Kidnapped by Space Aliens!”
Guess the games!
Leon is not here? Alright, guess it's my turn then.
- Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom (I've been wondering why do third party text adventure games make it to oveseas but not the Nintendo ones. Probably because of the Japanese folktale and murder case themes rather than the genre itself.) - Color a Dinosaur - Mega Man 4 (A rather weird slogan...) - Cobra Triangle (Modify this slogan a bit and it would easily work for any Fire Emblem title.) - Adventure Island 3

And here we go!
NES: “Feel the awesome power of 3-D rally racing!” SNES: “Six Stones with Unimaginable Power” N64: “Fly against the evil Empire!” GCN: “Expose the conspiracy. Capture the truth.” Wii: “Even like this, will you still love me?”

All correct! We seem to have a two-man race going.

Catch copies: NES: “The forces of good have never been so bad!” SNES: “Journey into the Dark Side of an Ancient Civilization” N64: “The deeper you go, the greater the pressure becomes.” GCN: “All ships, report in!” Wii: “Sudden flashbacks and puzzling memories of a lost mother”

Every single one of those... is correct!

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.
Apr 30, 2021 10:14:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."
May 29, 2021 11:45:28 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.
Jun 12, 2021 1:38:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.
Jun 13, 2021 16:05:31 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
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.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
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…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
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.
Jun 17, 2021 9:23:48 GMT -5
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.
