Hi all. September already, eh? Well, I guess that means I need to start thinking about Nintober again, right?
Well, this year I need to do things a little differently. I'm moving house, planning a wedding... and that basically means I can't do a full 31 days of Nintober. Time is not on my side this year!
However, I will be doing a short version for the final 10 days of October. And I am considering a few options. Let me know what you think:
1. Rather than collecting for the MS Society, I will be collecting for a mental health charity in memory of my brother who died last October.
2. I have my own list of possible entries and suggestions... BUT, how would people feel about donating a certain amount of money in order to request specific Nintendo monsters? I'm thinking donations of £20 will get you a requested monster of your choice. Of course there's only going to be 10 slots, but that would raise £200!
3. I'm also considering running screen recording software while I draw and uploading the sped-up versions to YouTube. These will allow you to see the process involved in the creation of each Nintober entry. Any revenue I make from the videos will go towards the charity.
Just a few ideas I'm throwing around right now. Would you be interested in donating in this way?

Autumn: the only period where Fry reliably shows up.
Well, after all these years, I'm still a jobless student, so I probably won't be donating more (sorry). Your idea seems to be nice though, and I guess I'll just look forward to it. There's nothing I want particularly.
The "10 Days of Nintober" project is just 2 weeks away. Have you ever wanted to choose the monsters that appear in Nintober? Have you ever wished I wasn't limited to just drawing Nintendo monsters?
Well, now's your chance to prove how much you want it. By donating £20 to a charity doing brilliant mental health work, you can decide which monster I will draw for Nintober, and select from ANY videogame monster, no matter how un-Nintendo it is.
This year, all donations to Nintober (no matter how small or in whatever currency) will go towards the CLASP charity, in memory of my brother who committed suicide one year ago. CLASP raises awareness and supports those suffering from mental illnesses and work towards suicide prevention. It's a great cause.
If you are interested in requesting a monster, contact me to let me know which monster you would like drawn, and then submit your donation to: JustGiving - I will then add you to the calendar and your monster will be drawn in the run-up to Halloween!
And if you can't spare that kind of moneys, but would like to support CLASP (or Nintober) anyway, then please donate whatever you can. It's all welcome!

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.

Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

nocturnal YL: Good to hear! Best of wishes to you and to your sister's family.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

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.

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.

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.

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...
