I'm guessing that they'll just filter them out by IP. So...
SELECT * FROM SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY IPAddr ORDER BY DateCreated DESC) AS rownum FROM Votes WHERE rownum = 1
If you have access to a proxy server, you can probably abuse that. They probably know they can't count on the players to keep themselves from casting multiple votes, but they also probably aren't going to track every single vote.
I love those comics, they demonstrate why I love Barbara so much. Maybe if they touch up her design people might like her more. I heard a couple of people call her ugly (I don't see it).
Anyway, in the world of Nintendo where 90% of all girls are magical fairy princesses, its nice to have someone like Barbara. She's a greedy bitch with a sadistic sense of humor. She's also a punk rocker which is really cool too.
I'll admit I voted for Barbara the Bat a few days ago, and suggested the idea of attacks using different musical instruments/equipment like guitars, drums, mikes, speakers, and possibly playing card attacks inspired by Master of Illusion. And also brought the idea that it could bring more attention to the Jam With The Band franchise if she got in.
Still wondering if I should vote again . . .
(I'm surprised that there isn't a form for voting in Assist Trophies)
I started an appeal and petition for the character Starfy.
Through this medium; we can educate other people about what makes him unique, spread his support and encourage a few people into voting. Contrary to some belief, he is not a 'weak' character with limited options for moves. His adventures throughout his five games support the idea that is far from the case.
I stress that I only intend to encourage votes from the official ballot. I do not want people messaging Masahiro Sakurai on Twitter or anything like that.
"(Nintendo) E4 (')07 EE(!) is one of my favourite colours lol.
1. Mother/Earthbound is at least fifty times more of a franchise than Band Bros., and you'd have to be in pretty heavy denial to think otherwise. Do heavy merchandise and a rabid legacy suddenly not count?
2. Why the quotes? Is Itoi's word suddenly meaningless?
3. What the hell does being finished have to do with anything? They could produce ten more Band Bros. games and it won't amount to jack if it never reaches the acclaim that Earthbound has. There's more to being considered a "franchise" than simply existing.
1. Fan art isn't official art.
2. I guess I'm just not a fan of chicks who wear super heavy make-up. Or carry a really narcissistic attitude.

Daigasso DX sold more copies than franchise golden boy Earthbound, even accounting only for Japanese sales, which isn't even necessary since both are the ones which saw global release. Or do actual sales suddenly not count?

That's literally all there is to being a media franchise: A media franchise is a collection of related media. Daigasso is a collection of three related games, which are the media, so yes, it's a media franchise. Know what else is a media franchise? Big Mutha Truckers. Absolute garbage. But it counts.
And how can I "deny reality" if I honestly didn't even know what the reality was?
I didn't know the first Band Bros. sold more than Earthbound, and I thought something wasn't considered a 'franchise' unless it had at least three entries and a bunch of tie-in media! You know, attempts at actual franchising? If Band Bros. really is a bigger 'franchise' than Earthbound, how come I've seen plenty of promotional material and merchandise such as manga and little knick-knacks pertaining to Earthbound but have never seen anything pertaining to Band Bros. besides its three games? If these things exist, I'd more be more than happy to see them.
And that the hell is wrong with my lady preferences? Am I suddenly not allowed to dislike the way a fictional character looks?
And most importantly, why are you getting so personally offended?

nocturnal YL: I'll be on a trip to Osaka between the 5th and the 12th. I still travel somewhat regularly, but it's been 4 years since I went to Japan in 2020 and 6 years since I went to Osaka specifically in 2018.

nocturnal YL: Riviera: The Promised Land is getting a remaster on Switch. I was wondering what's happened to it after all those other Dept. Heaven games got Switch versions.

nocturnal YL: I'll leave soon. Like before, I'll have Internet connection and will check this place, but I won't bother logging in.

nocturnal YL: I just found out that Atelier Ayesha DX has an out-of-bounds glitch, and it's very easy to get. That's the third game I've found something like that, after Meruru and Firis. There isn't much interesting to see, though. You just fall off and respawn.

nocturnal YL: Almost at the end of Atelier Ayesha DX. Got everything in the base game, but the extras are incredibly difficult.
Feb 18, 2024 14:40:03 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm not sure if I have enough remaining time to prepare for the extra battles (large amounts of items are involved, and restocking takes time). If I can't do it, I'll just end my playthrough. I didn't miss any story contents as far as I know.

nocturnal YL: The synthesis puzzles are fun and a bit difficult, and the time limit is quite tight. It generally feels close to Arland (but more complex). The story and UI aren't good in comparison, but this game is otherwise great. Comparable with Totori overall.

nocturnal YL: Cool. Atelier Ayesha DX has a save data corruption glitch, and now I cannot even start the game.
Feb 20, 2024 12:46:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It happened after I reached the ending. Something was off (the end credits did not show), and I looked around the Extra menu trying to launch it, and bam! Game crashed, and Launching the game now results in a black screen.

nocturnal YL: And I'm 100% sure it's save data corruption. Deleting the save data solved the problem, and restoring it would reinstate the issue.
Feb 20, 2024 13:14:49 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Ironically, I re-joined NSO to protect my Ciel nosurge DX save data, which ended up not needing it. I haven't closed my Atelier Ayesha DX session and have set my save data backup to fully manual. And it's this seemingly stable game that ended up failing.

Nester the Lark: I hope you haven't lost too much.

nocturnal YL: That's the entire save file, about 70 hours of progress, possibly gone. I wrote to KOEI TECMO GAMES about that, but last time I told them about a Firis DX bug they replied "we could reproduce, but game is too old to reopen development", so I'm not hopeful.

nocturnal YL: I almost 100% completed everything other than the original game's DLC or the Plus features too. Though I guess with better knowledge of the extra bosses, I'll be better prepared in a hypothetical 2nd run. Still prefer a proper New Game+ though.
Feb 20, 2024 15:28:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wow, and after you put all that time into it. That would really sour my impression of a game. Do you plan to redo everything?
Feb 20, 2024 18:17:54 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I think I'll most likely move on for now. Maybe I'll get back to it in the future; I'm thinking about replaying everything in the series at some point (since a few games have second-playthrough-only bonuses), which might be years from now.

Nester the Lark: I started the demo for Unicorn Overlord. I've barely gotten into it, but it's already VERY impressive!
