I guess theres a lot of conflicting reviews about. Anyways, I got some intersting theories for some things in the game, like why time doesn't pass under caves.
Time moves slower while your moving faster, meaning. What if, somehow, theres a time distortion effect, were everything under ground moves so fast, that time does not pass at all... to Olimar, loui, the president, and the pikmin, everything seems to be moving normally, but time does not pass at all.
Secondly, why is everything so small? Something obviously happened to the oxygen levels, they fell, very low. Remeber before most animals lived on land, and the only land creatures were insects? The insrcts were huge, some bigger than your torso. That was because there were very few creatures to take in that oxygen, and so it was rich,a nd the insects became huge. The oxygen levels fell and everything became smaller, much smaller. Pikmin could be evolved humans, adapted to take in CO2 and oxygen because of the fall in oxygen levels.
Third, a more fatastical theory. What if this planet is somehow made to appear a certian way to the people who find it? Olimar was very scientific, and so, a lot of new, and fantastical creatures appeared. The Koppians had probably read Olimar's writings about the planet, and new what to expect. But what about the plasm Wraith? What if, it was controlling the planet looked?
Finally, why doesn't the food rot? All the matellic items in the game are seen as rusted, with paint chipping off, but food items aren't rotting. What if, humans had vanished, just days (I'm talking about pikmin time) Before Olimar arrived? The measurments of time are so short, that it easily could have been less than an actaul day that Olimar was there, was gone, and humans are gone. This could be in the future, with new life forms evolving. Or it. Ould be my latter theory.

I actually think Pikmin 3 is great. My only issue with it is that the game actually controls better with the Wiimote + Nunchuck as opposed to the gamepad. It's not bad with the gamepad but noticeably more fluid with Wii controls.
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.

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…?

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.

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...?

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.

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.

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.
