Nester the Lark: I finally started Engage a few days ago. I've been playing it somewhat slowly, but luckily, the game is much more brisk than Three Houses. Mar 12, 2023 11:11:03 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Quick question, since Nintendo eShop is closing, I'm wondering if I should pick up some DLC I didn't get before (and then, like the WiiWare games, end up never playing them). In particular, Xenoblade X DLC is cheap, but I don't know if I'll get that, so… Mar 17, 2023 9:23:16 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also in consideration is Fire Emblem Awakening DLC. Back then, there were two series of DLC featuring einherjar from Archanea/Jugdral and Elibe/Tellius, and I only picked the "complete" version of each line. Maybe I should pick up the rest? Mar 17, 2023 9:25:50 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I can't really speak about Xenoblade X DLC since I still don't have the game. I just know that it was included for free in the international version of the game. Also, there are several free data packs that are supposed to speed up loading times. Mar 17, 2023 10:39:26 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I'm still gambling on the game getting a port to Switch or the next hardware. Monolith Soft needs a stopgap title before the next main Xenoblade, right? I could be wrong, though. Mar 17, 2023 10:41:37 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Finally actually started Future Connected. The story started by showing an obvious villain. Someone should tell the kids to stay cautious. Mar 18, 2023 11:36:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Future Connected's standard battle music is pretty unexpected. I really like it. Mar 19, 2023 2:44:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: 100% completed Future Connected! I know it's short, but… it's short. Mar 19, 2023 13:52:14 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I can think of 3 Soviet Union references in Nintendo games: the USSR team in NES Volleyball, the rockets in GB Tetris, and the Berlin Wall in Mario Kart Tour. None of these is offensive, but it shows Nintendo is less controversy-averse than I thought. Mar 21, 2023 9:20:34 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: In other "Japanese stuff in English" news, the Japanese Nintendo Twitter accounted tweeted in English about an upcoming quiz for Breath of the Wild (also available in English). Mar 24, 2023 8:17:33 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: On a side note, it's interesting that Nintendo is spending more time promoting Breath of the Wild rather than the sequel that's due out in less than two months. Mar 24, 2023 8:18:42 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: I'm at a point in Fire Emblem Engage where there's gotten to be a little too much to do in the Somniel. However, I don't mind it as much as in Three Houses. Maybe I just feel more invested in it. Mar 25, 2023 9:53:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: The Future Connected battle theme is so catchy that I still keep listening to it a few days since I finished it. Mar 25, 2023 12:41:40 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I just realised that Xenoblade X is a 22.7GB download in Japan, and perhaps a bit more overseas. Barring the use of some different compression tech, there's no way they're bringing this to Nintendo Switch, where 32GB cards aren't really used AFAIK. Mar 25, 2023 13:07:21 GMT -5 *
nocturnal YL: This size also means the Xenoblade X edition of the Wii U hardware can't really be used for playing other downloaded games without an external hard drive. Mar 25, 2023 13:09:46 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Haven't touched my Japanese 3DS for 3 years. Unlike my other, North American 3DS (which I think was killed when I entered it into sleep mode and powered it down at the same time), this one's still working just fine. Mar 27, 2023 15:11:54 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, how could it know what time it is if I haven't been supplying it power for 3 years? Mar 27, 2023 15:40:32 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Alright, I'm done with my final shopping, where I bought almost nothing, since I already have everything I wanted. It's not like I'm going to suddenly jump back to the old systems. Mar 27, 2023 15:53:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Maybe since I'm relatively older now, years feel like months to me, and nostalgia for game systems just one generation prior isn't really a thing to me. Picking up the 3DS and Wii U feels like I haven't even left those systems to begin with. Mar 27, 2023 15:54:46 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I did not buy anything from the Wii U eShop before its closure. I mainly had everything I wanted, but I also felt apathetic. My focus is more on the current platform and games. Mar 28, 2023 10:19:59 GMT -5
