I'm trying to summarize this game's capability.
Objects: 60 types with an unexplained "Customize" button. (Screenshot)
Shake variations that I know of: Bill Blaster --> Red Bill Blaster (shoots homing Bullet Bills, or shoot non-Bullet Bills at a high speed) Goomba's Shoe --> goomba's high heel? Koopa Troopa --> Red Koopa Troopa (SMB1) Super Mushroom --> Luigi Mushroom
Modifiers: Super Mushroom + Enemy --> Big enemy (Doesn't seem to work with Bill Blasters) Wing + Enemy or item --> Flying enemy or item (flying Piranha Plant not supported) Stacking enemies, items or Bill Blaster
Theme-dependent: The game physics itself SMB1 Mystery Mushroom (gives costume) / SMB3 Super Leaf / SMW Cape Feather / NSMBU Propeller Mushroom SMB1, SMB3 Goomba's Shoe / SMW, NSMBU Yoshi SMB1, SMW Spike Balls / SMB3 Jelectros

So who else got Super Mario Maker? I got it, made some levels, and uploaded them.
Goomba Underground: 7E5F-OOOO-OO3A-96D9 Bouncy Shell Tower: 2A6D-OOOO-OO3A-A5BO Hammered Clouds: 5O49-OOOO-OO3A-BOOD scratch that, it is now 7341-0000-003D-FEB7 (I edited it a bit and added some SFX effects (light bulbs) to let you know there are invisible blocks above you)
I don't know if the codes use the letter 'O' or the number '0'.
EDIT: Oh, by the way, we are getting a Super Mario Maker stage in SSB4.

Sky Ruins: 298B-0000-0051-07A6
This started out as a high concept, and I just kinda improvised from there. Again, I don't think it's a terribly difficult stage (unless you're bad at jumping), but I think it's an entertaining "journey."
On a side note, I was surprised to discover this morning that my Step By Step stage has a less than 50% completion percentage after 17 attempts. Was it really that hard?
EDIT: Sorry, I meant 17 attempts from nine players.

Yeah, my percentages for both stages have gone down since then.
I honestly feel a little bad when I see that some people never actually finish my stages. They weren't designed to be super difficult (although I'm sure they seem a lot easier to me, the designer, than someone going in blind), so it's basically like a sign that they didn't find my stages that much fun to play.
I mean, frankly, designing a "murder machine" doesn't take that much skill. (I also have no interest in the hands-off "Rube Goldberg" stages that seem to be really popular for some reason.) I'm aiming to make stages that players can enjoy the journey of. If players are unable or unwilling to complete that journey, then that can be seen as a failure on my part.
I did earn my first star today, tho, for the Sky Ruins stage, so someone liked it.

I wuld be more surprised if this took much longer to hit the million mark, even for a Wii U game. It's essentially a file editor (and you don't see synthesizers or BASIC compilers getting mainstream popularity), but it's also considered a main series (kind of) Mario game, and one that lets you make the game's contents yourself at that.
I have currently paused playing Super Mario Maker. I have an idea that mixes costumes and automatic Mario (identity crisis yay!), but clearing the expert levels is simply too demanding. I have to keep resetting until I get a level that isn't too unforgiving.

People will eventually make stages with this costume in it, and players will be curious about it. Better make it available worldwide than making it read-only for overseas players, if you ask me.
They're also accepting submissions of levels for Mr Arino to play live at 22:00 (JP) on 12/12, which can be viewed in Niconico Live and YouTube Live. You have to submit the level first for the level to be eligible, as the submission form asks for the course ID. www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/amaj/arinoplay/index.html
Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

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.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
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.
Sept 4, 2022 11:30:56 GMT -5
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.
Sept 4, 2022 11:38:00 GMT -5
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.
Sept 4, 2022 19:04:34 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
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.
Sept 8, 2022 14:51:39 GMT -5
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...
Sept 19, 2022 8:55:44 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s
