Yep I'm back and doing it again. This time I hope to create a Smash icon for every Nintendo series/stand-alone titles listed on the Nintendo Database website! Possibly even more considering the site doesn't list Wario series or Yoshi series in it's own category.
For AE, I would suggest making an image with a couple of basic faces put together.
I want to use something that is acttually shown in-game/boxart/posters and not just make something up. Believe it or not, all the icons I made above are taken from screenshots and boxart. Yes, even the fish for Aqua Space was taken from a screenshot of the decoration on top of the "fish house".
I was thinking a helmet like from this old art. I know a lot of people use a wrench, but that really only represents the GBA trilogy.
I guess a flag with a star could also work, most AW games feature one nation with a star emblem.
With regards to Smile Book Collection, there really isn't anything available to use by default. I looked around for stuff, and I can't find anything outside of NCL's site, even Niconico is turning up empty.
I think the Another Code symbol should be something close to Ashley since the games are about her and her family. I know someone on pixiv for instance used the loading icon from her DAS as her emblem.

I thought about the Red Star / Orange Star emblem, and dismissed it for looking too much like a star panel from Puzzle League when presented as a silhouette. I also thought about using a tank, but it may feel too generic.
Maybe have this talking box or the balance for Egaocho? I think asking for icon for something like this is like asking for an icon for Adobe Flash Catalyst of Microsoft Azure: there simply isn't anything that represents it well outside of its user base.
For Battle Clash, I would keep it simple and use the cross hairs from the box art. Big Brain Academy I would use a motarboard cap, and Brain Age the head silhouette from the North American box art. For Barker Bill, maybe use his top hat, there really isn't much unique to that game.
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.)

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.)

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…

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.

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.

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.
