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
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
