@maolfunction haven't read the rest of the thread but i assume it's largely a bunch of gamefaqs and Something Awful goons

@MochaKoffee that, IGN and 1up make up a lot of it, and a bunch of Nintendo fansites

@maolfunction i forgot about 1up lol

i enjoyed the What If articles they had in their dying days

@triumph_forks @MochaKoffee I had an account there but honestly couldn't tell you if I ever used it, same with most of those nsider offshoots the town square regulars made when they got banned

@maolfunction @triumph_forks the worst part is that he rarely actually has anything to contribute himself to the thread, it's usually just what amounts to a summary of whichever position he falls on's points

@maolfunction @MochaKoffee Sometimes I miss forums, but then I remember I don't actually like talking to aannoying gamer people that I hate. I just miss shitposting sometimes. :churchmouse:

@maolfunction @triumph_forks famiboards is cool

i think it's really funny how their exodus was so noticeable that they stopped numbering the nintendo OT on Era

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks yeah, several members of their staff plays mafia on era, and quite a few people in the mafia discord seem to be active members

seemed like a chill place but I'm done with Nintendo forums :fatyoshi:

@maolfunction @triumph_forks i thought about it, but same lol

i like to compare the news threads on Era and Fami

the vibe is so completely different lol

@maolfunction @triumph_forks to this day, i have no idea why Joe still puts up with Era's shit lol

@maolfunction @triumph_forks i've always preferred sleepier forums compared to Era's conga lines of people trying to out-joke each other honestly lol

@maolfunction @triumph_forks Chrono's your archetypical game that has a sizable online cult following that never actually sells *amazingly* well.

and somehow gamers never *get* that lol

Then you run into the issue that it was a special development case, and there's really nobody left working at Square to push Chrono.

@maolfunction @triumph_forks Chrono also has the cultural cachet to come with Expectations, which can be a bad thing lol

SaGa has Kawazu pushing his baby with all of his accrued chips, but they're also just enhanced ports in a series that, while it might not reach the heights of a Final Fantasy, has a proven sales record.

A lot of people are going to want an HD-2D remake (which is expensive, Yes) or a full 3D remake with all the FFVIIR bells and whistles from Chrono lol

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks do people think that effect was relatively cheap? I always thought it had to be a labor intensive process

@maolfunction @MochaKoffee Building the sprites and making sure they don't look weird when performing animations across several camera angles can't be easy, I don't think.

Triangle Strategy alone has a ton of unique sprites too

@maolfunction @triumph_forks "it's 2D pixel art, how expensive can it be"

(pixel art is in fact *very* expensive, especially on the scale of a Chrono Trigger or Triangle Strategy)

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks it'd be different if era posters didn't just repeat the same thing 50 times

@maolfunction @triumph_forks i've legitimately seen people post the honor and shame copypasta like fifteen times in some threads lol

i'm just happy they left the stupid banderas gif (mostly) at Gaf

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks there was one thread that I can't quite recall the details where a few users spontaneously posted a range of fractions to indicate the length of a part of something and more users picked up on the humor of the disparity and did the same thing, and then like 30 people ran the humor into the ground

@maolfunction @triumph_forks i want a browser plug-in that replaces every fat4all post with "woof"

it'll be funnier than what he actually posts

@maolfunction @MochaKoffee I've never really checked out famiboards but if the dudes there are the typical boring Nintendo fanboys then I don't think I'd get along with them.

Reshitera fucking sucks, I got banned for a week there for saying the objectively true statement of "The PS5 and Series X doesn't have any games" and never went back lol

@maolfunction @MochaKoffee OMG WHO IS THIS LOL

I was on AtLF..... that place was hellish

@maolfunction @MochaKoffee oh!!

I know suichimo. he really liked fire emblem. like, a lot. it's all he would ever talk about

@maolfunction @MochaKoffee NSiders are such fucking dorks, honestly

they all love mentioning how they were users every fucking chance they get lol

@mewfeuille @MochaKoffee there was one guy who mentioned Hyrule Town Square who I'm pretty sure I knew as PsychoPickle who wrote Zelda fanfic

thread just cemented the fact that I've been mostly talking to the same people for two decades

@maolfunction @MochaKoffee I remember psychopickle too lmao

he was an outsider guy. I posted there for a while, but the ironyposting got a bit too much for me to handle after a while

I, too, am still mostly talking to nerds I met on a nintendo forum

@mewfeuille @MochaKoffee I had an outsider account that maybe had 5 posts on it. they definitely had late teens, early 20s edgy vibes and I was still like 14 and intimidated by them lol

@mewfeuille @maolfunction @MochaKoffee an official nintendo forum closed down back in 2007, big fucking deal lol

@triumph_forks @mewfeuille @maolfunction had a realization that the Prominent Members bullshit from a few years ago on Era was just the Nisider Sage program

@MochaKoffee @triumph_forks @maolfunction lol

don't remember this at all, but internet forums love devising way to divide people into castes lmao

@mewfeuille @MochaKoffee @maolfunction Thinking about the original nsider is always a trip because I was like 12 when they closed down lmaooo

I got warned by a mod one time for spamming gifs and I personally sent him a DM to apologize to him. I was probably ten years old at the time. :theydonothing:

@triumph_forks @MochaKoffee @maolfunction my dirty little secret was that I was never actually an active poster on the original NSider. I had, like, 80 posts and only showed up during big "events" to shitpost lol

my restored plumber post count from NS2 wasn't even actually mine but nobody questioned it :churchmouse:

@mewfeuille @MochaKoffee @maolfunction LMAOOO I always wonder if anybody got away with faking their plumber status

I don't think I ever made it to koopa :no:

@MochaKoffee @mewfeuille @maolfunction Remember when people would talk down on cappies like they were some second class citizens? That was always some wild shit how people hated newer members having opinions or making threads. Nsider was truly a corrupt caste system that deserved to die.

@triumph_forks @MochaKoffee @maolfunction after a while I think people just assumed that any cappy jumping into a conversation was just an alt account lol

it was sort of a weird thing where everybody had an alt, for no real good reason

@mewfeuille @triumph_forks @MochaKoffee I'm still irrationally annoyed I never got Plumber on NS2 legitimately because they increased the requirements for it when they expanded the rank system when I was like 500 posts away

@maolfunction @mewfeuille @triumph_forks they did the same to me when I got to I think Warpstar Knight or whatever it was right before it lol
