Remember last year when I drew loads of Namco, Konami and Sega characters? Well I'm hoping to relaunch the Nintendo All-Stars section again soon... So it's time for another poll!
The rules: 1. Pick your Top 10 Nintendo characters. The order doesn't matter. All characters receive 1 vote. 2. If the game isn't named after them, make sure to include the name of the game/series as well. 3. You may only pick ONE character per series in your list. (For now)
This will be an ongoing project, so depending on how the voting goes, I may mix it up with extra polls (e.g. Top 5 Mario Characters or Top 10 DS Characters).
I will add all characters voted for to a chart, like before... Only this time using the magic of Google Docs! Click here to view it so far (I shall update this as I go).

Smash hype is slowly getting to you too I see
Before I F5'd the thread my list contained Mario, Kirby and Ness because the majority of these franchises' games (+ FE & PKMN) is why I still stick around with Nintendo. But since you're going with the Smash cast anyway... obscure vote spam is go! - Red [Pokemon R/B/Y](and not his FR/LG redesign if I can be picky) - Chrom [Fire Emblem](his DLC conversations are just too great) - Muddy Mole [Mole Mania] - Popo (..& Nana?) [Ice Climbers] - Takamaru [Nazo no Murasame Jō] - Tamagon [Devil World] - Bubbles [Clu Clu Land] - Donbe [Shin Onigashima] - Prince of Sablé [For The Frog The Bells Tolls] - Peter Parrot Mike Jones [Star Tropics]
1: Mach Rider 2: Tamagon (Devil World) 3: Kumatora (Mother 3) 4: Takamaru (Murasame) 5: Mike Jones (StarTropics) 6: The Fabulous Frog Choir (Ocarina of Time) 7: The Amazon (Pro Wrestling) 8: Ice Climbers 9: The Headless Snowman (Mario 64) 10: ROB the Robot
I'll admit, I didn't pick my top 10, per se, so much as some that I just want to see you draw. I can at least BS a reason for the snowman, though- Nintendo Power's best April Fool's Day joke centered on him.
I am so glad this is coming back. Was a wonderful part of the early site.
1: Mach Rider 2: Anthony Higgs (Metroid) 3: Hardin (Fire Emblem series) 4: Takamaru (Murasame) 5: Sky Skipper (I remember when he was on the earlier All Star reboot) 6: Kyle Hyde (Hotel Dusk) 7: Prince Sable (For the Frog a Bell Tolls) 8: Shulk (Xenoblade) 9: Donbe (Shin Onigashima) 10: ROB the Robot
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...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
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.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
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.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.
