First off this has got to be one of the strangest cameos/easter eggs ever.
Basically, hackers discovered a while back that the Switch has NES emulator known as "Flog" or golf backwards. In it was the NES game Golf but it was unknown how to activate the game. Apart from one user who accidentally discovered it back in July i.imgur.com/THJejIU.png who no one believed.
Now hackers have found out to unlock it which involves the following steps (which sounds absolutely crazy and I thought was fake when I first heard it). - Play on July 11th, the date of Iwata's death (Switch uses Nintendo servers for time check, while hackers used a Switch not connected to the internet with 1.00 firmware and also makes sense for the guy accidentally discovering it back in July) - Start from HOME menu - Detach Joy-Cons - Perform the "Direct to you" hand gesture
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.
