I really, really hate the new Pink Coin update. Not only can you not set how many Pink Coins you need for a key, they also don't work with checkpoints. I've spent ages working on a stage, only to have to delete it, because the checkpoint screws me over when trying to upload it.
I pretty much stopped caring about costumes in general, since unlocking the basic costumes is too much work. 16 incredibly difficult levlls to unlock one costume!? Ugh.
Expert has gotten a lot easier since Super Expert came out.
Yeah, good thing they added another level of difficulty, because while playing on Expert prior to the update, occasionally you'd come across some really neat levels, but having to do 15 other levels, which were generally just fusterclucks or troll levels (I'd always skip a level with even one door leading to an unavoidable death, those levels are cancer to good level design), was too much of a hassle. Also reducing the amount of stages needed to be passed down to six on the final difficulty was a good touch.
Still wish you could share a level to a friend without having to use a computer. I've definitely come across some really neat levels I would have loved to share with my bro.

Yeah you can? In the upper right corner.
You can't put ten coins in the level, put five of them in the main level to unlock a door, and have the other five in the sub-level to unlock another door.
Anyway, I've made some more levels, if anyone's interested...
F98C-0000-01D7-3D58 - Just a minute... 4A37-0000-01E0-6553 - Big Mario takes to the sky 1DA8-0000-01E9-DED9 - Nintendo Quiz (Turn comments on) BF1E-0000-01F2-2187 - Going the wrong way D2CB-0000-0215-637C - Spike Pillar Castle
Please don't forget to star if you liked any of them.
Them were some pretty good levels, though I still have some gripes with that last one. I'll try finishing it later. As for myself, I've only really tweaked both my levels and made one new one. If anyone's interested:
I also want to share some stages I found either really interesting or really fun:
~アカヘビ~akahebi: EFCA-0000-01C-BF69 Really great use of the editor, definitely haven't thought of uses like this Mansion Escape: 9358-0000-0097-20C1 Been meaning to make a stage like this one, maybe with a Zelda Dunegon theme Power-Up Puzzle Palace: BD32-0000-0067-CA07 Another one of those stages that feel like an overworld, but with puzzles

Sure is unexpected to see him here. I thought we'd lost him forever, what with no new game since 2008.
...What, are these things becoming the new Smash Bros. now?
It's great to see him back and all of the first three Game Boy Advance titles are now on Japanese Wii U Virtual Console.
Densetsu no Stafy - July 29, 2015 Densetsu no Stafy 2 - March 26, 2016 Densetsu no Stafy 3 - April 6, 2016
Starfy's appearance may have been a promotion for the recent Densetsu no Stafy 2 Virtual Console release and it seems interesting that Densetsu no Stafy 3 was released so shortly after.
I'd personally love to see Nintendo release the fifth game (The Legendary Starfy) that was only released in Japan, North America and Oceania for Europe via Wii U VC if they can, and re-release it in North America, Oceania. I feel that would be a great way for Nintendo to breath life back into the series outside of Japan, and the activity, as well as the positive Starfy reception has suddenly given me a lot more hope that Nintendo may release a new game.
The diversity of Costume Marios is interesting and I personally love it, with characters like Barbara the Bat, Chibi-Robo, Donbe, Hikari, Mallo, the unique Super Mario Maker mascots and popular media costumes not originating from video games (per se).
Speaking of characters originating outside video games... I really would love to see Captain N, Princess Lana, Duke, and Game Boy... and of course video game characters like Simon Belmont, King Hippo, Eggplant Wizard, and even Mother Brain (because why not?).
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.

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.
