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?”

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.
Sept 27, 2020 12:59:22 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.
Oct 16, 2020 13:05:51 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
Nov 15, 2020 16:11:31 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
