Edit: Sorry, I accidentally posted this in the wrong board, please move.
Now that the game is out, what are our impressions on it? I loved the original Wii U version, uploading new levels, and I'd play my brother's levels too.
As for the 3DS not so much because of the lack of the game allowing you to do so other than to directly share your levels locally with registered friends or share them with StreetPass, even with the new preexisting stages mode. However, being able to play user submitted levels on the 3DS version like the original Wii U version made up for this a little; and for some people the interest in making new levels can fade away.

Still thinking if I should get this game. Long story short, Super Mario Maker 2 is friendlier in the "play" part, but it's worse in the "make" part. I'm mostly only interested in playing good levels, so in theory I should get it.
But there's another problem: even though there are more parts than any other 2D Mario game, it feels like there aren't enough parts and variations. There are mechanics from each original game (yes, even SMB1) that's not present in SMM2, and the game overall just doesn't feel like the real deal. SMW hacks are more fun to play.
It's better than SMM1, but I'm not convinced it's a huge improvement from that. There are bugfixes and other improvements, but a lot of SMM1's quirks are still present. And I already said I'm not a huge fan of SMM1.
I'm still on the fence. Maybe I should finally get back to SMM1 and see if I have a change of heart.
I love playing the online mode, specifically the team multiplayer. I used to play lots of battle mode, but feel the co-op mode (so far) is more enjoyable. Specifically the respawning and bouncing off players, lets you complete harder stages together; and when the stage is a puzzle, it simulates an escape room ("escape room" is like a mystery puzzle area people team up to solve). However, sometimes in co-op mode people will vote for Expert/Super Expert, so you have to hope your team and you can clear it. Another thing is, sometimes levels are considered part of the multiplayer mode that were not designed for multiplayer (e.g. keep right stages). Sometimes the lag in this game however can put you off playing it, in this respect you may want to play another game.
Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.

nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.
Sept 8, 2022 14:51:39 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...

Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s
