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

Shrikeswind: Date of birth, August 30, 2022. I'm an uncle.

Shrikeswind: Just woke up and within like a half an hour my brother-in-law sends me two pics of the little rapscallion. Not sharing because I don't believe in posting baby pics on the Internet, but I will say he's clearly going to be a genius.
Aug 31, 2022 3:49:29 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.
Aug 31, 2022 3:59:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Good to hear! Best of wishes to you and to your sister's family.
Aug 31, 2022 8:57:30 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Congrats again, Uncle Shrikes!

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...
Aug 31, 2022 9:23:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.
Sept 4, 2022 11:28:04 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.
Sept 4, 2022 11:30:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.
Sept 4, 2022 11:38:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.
Sept 4, 2022 11:40:15 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.
Sept 4, 2022 19:04:34 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.
Sept 8, 2022 14:51:39 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.
Sept 9, 2022 8:49:46 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.
Sept 9, 2022 8:50:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.
Sept 13, 2022 9:47:11 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
