Interesting read. Personally, I'm all for it. Sure, I'd like to see whoever I like to take part in Smash Bros., but I far prefer no representation if the alternative is misrepresentation. They've already successfully destroyed certain characters by making them out of character in Brawl, so I definitely won't want to see that happen here.
I understand that Brawl terribly misrepresented a lot of characters, but what did they "destroy"? I don't know what you mean by that.

Aside from the fact that Tropical Freeze looks like real gorilla fur, the proportions of the face are off too. It gives DK an even goofier smile. The jaw is less pronounced and the mouth extends way too far to the corners of his face.
The likely scenario with the Mega Man trailer is that the CGI model was designed by a different team than the in-game model was. Brawl's trailers and SSE cutscenes used models that were just about identical to the in-game models, but for this game's trailers and character portraits, they seem to be using models that are more detailed, and in a couple of cases, differently detailed.
I think his in-game model fur is supposed to look "rougher" to suit the setting of a fighting game. I don't mind it.

Ah, nice. I was hoping to see any kind of new information through these daily screenshots. They probably won't show new stages at this point, but they can show any new attack moves (bar Final Smash, which they're probably still keeping as secrets) or new things about existing stages.
It looks more like a stage hazard to me, as opposed to 1P mode boss.
Between classic Mega Man's Wii U model complete with his arsenal and this stage, the Smash Bros. teams really are doing more justice to Mega Man than the current Capcom ever will.

I'm more interested in that spark of light. Is it an accompanying effect, perhaps for the Wii Fit Trainer's smash up+A, or is it something from an off-screen character?
Oh, and the last day's 3DS scrolling stage pretty much confirmed what I suspected earlier: the two Mario stages are actually different sections of the same one. I'll even say Warp Pipes will be used for transportation, since the sky section is obvious moving towards one if you see it in animated fashion.
I really want to see these stages formally introduced.

People are speculating its either a neutral special or a down special, called Sun Salutation, based on the yoga move of the same name, which is how she is posed in the picture. It seems like a pretty reasonable assumption to me.
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.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

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.

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."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

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.

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…
