Looks neither creepy nor uncanny to me. Dolls with realistic proportions look uncanny, but obviously cartoon characters don't look that way to me.
I think it's the motion capture giving the cartoon characters realistic movements that strikes me as odd. This bothers me a little with other characters, too. (Some of the Sonic games that used motion capture, for instance.) But I get used to it eventually.
And the new update has been released, seems pretty good so far with the ability tweaks. I'm also seen pictures of using stage features from the Splat Zone version of Arowana Mall are now Turf War version.
And announced today Splatoon has sold 1 million copies in Europe. The art director Mr Inoue made this to celebrate.
(Yeah, I'll admit it took a little bit of time to realize that it's 4 Inklings and Judd gathered around a ball with Europe on it).
I actually have no idea which is more popular, I don't really know anything about that Splatoon fan community. I kinda assumed based on what Leon said that Marie was the more popular one, is she not? She's definitely the less appealing of the two to me.
She'd be cool looking if they made her tentacle hair black or her dress and boots white, her design's kind of a mess compared to her sister. And her droopy face makes her look pretty boring. Callie's really nicely designed though. It definitely looks like they designed her first and then just made a quick edit to give her a sister, which is a shame.
That said, I do like Marie's hairstyle a lot. That's pretty cool.

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.

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.

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!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.

Shrikeswind: You know, you'd figure eventually I'd get a hang of the whole "personal tradition" thing. You'd figure.
