@Snatcher Don't think I had a past encounter with you via that name. Still glad I've met you during the Snatcher era.

Cool, that also reminds me, I need to get around to checking out A Hat In Time. Always looked like my kind of game and thought the main character was rather cute.

Snatcher

@Sunsy OMG you have got to play it, its around Mario OD for me in 3d platformer's, plus, its fully voice acted.

But since your doing pc gaming I would get it on steam, mines is switch but the pc version has waaay more stuff then the switch one, as it has mods.

Sunsy

@Snatcher Didn't know that, I just thought both versions were the same game. Making note then to go for it on PC. Thanks

Sunsy

Snatcher

@Sunsy NP, They are the same game, its just if you own a pc, you will get more content because of the mods. Also unless you like Speedrunning stuff, I wouldn't go for the Seal the deal dlc, But you can put it on easy mode, Thats what I did, because its stupid hard. (The dlc not the main game)

I signed up on Nintendolife all the way back in 2009, so yeah, I've been around for quite a while. I'm one of the few old school users of the site that still makes posts on here every once in a while. Before that, I was a lurker for a couple of months before deciding to join, since I liked the small community and the constant new articles of everything Nintendo related. My username was the same as it is now, and I have no plans on changing since I like the way it is, and I'm terrible with creative names.

Back in the older days, there used to be a good amount of users that I loved chatting with before suddenly disappearing without warning or left due to life related issues. Really miss having those conversations. I was also more active, had a more positive attitude, and was less of a bitter person. You can thank the last few years of life and society for that.

I joined in March of last year, kinda as the entire world melted around us. I had been a reader for at least a year before, but never checked out the forums until after I joined. Initially I posted comments but... it was really clear that forums are more relaxed in general, so it was a no-brainer.

Some people may remember my first-ever profile picture being the infamous KFC-bucket helmet.

My profile indicates 2010, but I was likely browsing the site for some time prior and - knowing me - felt compelled to butt into a conversation.

I don’t have any memories of my early days here though. It’s almost shocking that I have already been here for 11 years. If I review my comments from the very beginning, perhaps that may give me a better idea, but I’m kind of glad that I can’t (that I know of). I hate reading ramblings from a younger and unwiser me.

I’d also guess that stepping back from The Sims community may have contributed to me subconsciously looking elsewhere. I was making machinima shortly after the launch of The Sims 2 in late 2004 until early 2006. I just couldn’t compete with the ridiculous standard of work that was being produced and saw little point in churning out mediocre stuff. That, and I was in my final year of high school and had scaled back a ton. I had done a lot of voiceover work for other people since, though it’s been a long while now.

I feel like I've answered this before (who knows how long ago) but here goes. Christmas 2010. I'd been lurking for a good while but finally decided to make an account. My first forum post was about Super Mario All-Stars for Wii. A game I never picked up. I also mentioned Metroid Prime Trilogy in the same post, and how it's still widely available in my country, which is funny because I bought mine a year or two later when I saw a lone copy for half the normal price. At that point, I didn't even remember seeing them in the wild.

Nowadays, I'm not quite as active, when it comes to writing on the forums or commenting on news articles but I'm still visiting the site every day. I kind of miss the old days and the users who have long since left NL but I still feel at home here.

I took a quick look at my user profile to find the info for this reply. It's weird you can browse every forum post you've ever made but only the last 750 comments you wrote on news stories. My totals so far are 1526 comments, 1823 posts (including this one) and 13 threads.

I didn't know you could dig up your old posts. Apparently this is where I was at with my first post

[......]When something like the Vitality Sensor (which I actually like the idea of) comes up the "hardcore" get annoyed because they see it as taking effort away from "the next Zelda" which needs to be "10000x better looking than the last and have full 1:1 motion and be huge and epic and....".

The truth is that direction will eventually have everyone disappointed and have them leaving like I did. What Nintendo understands is that their job isn't to make "the next Zelda" better than the last one. Their job is to catch "fun" put it in a box and give it to JB HiFi so they can sell it for $79AU so I can open up the box and have my $79AU worth of fun out of it. I tried "10000x better", it got boring... sell me fun

Probably more like $69AU at JBs these days. There's also a post about a week after this where I speculate about the next Wii to release "around 2012-2014". Where I talk about Nintendo abandoning optical media and replacing it with ~8GB proprietery flash media. Then for backwards compatibility there's some kind of cable you connect to the Wii to use it's optical drive. Or something.

I've known about this site for about a year, but only joined two months ago.

Your first anything is important; a memory you don't want to forget. That's what makes nostalgia such a fascinating concept. That's why many people enjoy games that have aged well.

My account's not nearly this old, but I showed up here in 2009. I was in middle school and had just gotten a DSi and I remember being very interested in buying Electroplankton Lumiloop on the DSi Shoppe for some reason. I looked up reviews for it, and this was the only site at the time (that wasn't GameFAQs) that had a review. Then it became my go-to place for reviews and news about Nintendo, and eventually I started working here.
